Teshuvah

  As evening descends on Yom Kippur, I am pleasantly full following a day of fasting. I broke the fast at the home of my friends Barb and Glenn Cohen. I have known Barb since we were 14 and we […]

This

As joyful as the image on the cover, “This” is the newest creation by Mantra-Pop Artist Robin Renee. With four previous CD’s to her credit, her style is alt-rock-pop-celtic-folk-kirtan. Her voice is both deep and soaring, stretching the sound spectrum. An Eastern […]

Claw Marks

  Debbie Ford posed this question on Facebook and I felt called to respond: “Why is it that so many of us hold on to experiences from our past, refusing to let them go? Is it because we don’t know […]

Whirlwind Workaholic

There are many days when I feel like this meteorological phenomenon, swirling a million miles an hour, knocking about everything in my path, at a dizzying pace. Whew!  Although I have eased back considerably, there are indeed times during which I rev up the engine. When that happens, […]

Rosh Hashanah Revelations

Love Trumps Hackers

September 11th Remembered

  As I am writing this entry, the calendar reads 9/11/12. Hard to imagine that 11 years has passed since another ‘day that will live in infamy’ occurred. Like the day JFK and John Lennon were killed, most people can […]

Religion For Atheists

As I was traversing a long road home from VA to PA this past Sunday morning, I was flipping through the radio dial and stopped on an NPR station that featured an interview with Alain De Botton who founded a […]

Puddle Splashing

Today I was at the one year anniversary celebration of my friend Kathy Tooley’s yoga studio called Anahata Yoga and Wellness Center. The word means ‘heart chakra’ in Sanskrit and truly it is a place where glad hearts rejoice, sad […]

From Scared To Sacred

What do you do when you place a call to the Universe and it answers?  Do you short circuit the cosmic connection or do you listen and take dictation?  Good thing for the world that Renaissance Woman, Carol Woodliff did […]

Reverend Daughter

  I received a thought provoking email a few days ago from someone I don’t know personally. First is her comment, followed by my response: ” Dear Rev. Weinstein: It sounds as if you are of Jewish ancestry. If so, I […]

Responding To The Call

Lately the line has been ringing off the hook with calls from the Universe that send tingles down my spine, buzzing in my ears, rattling in my bones (in a good way), hair standing on end, and  goosebumps on my […]

With An Open Hand

“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!”     Steve Maraboli   Life, the Truth and Being […]

How The Universe Works

For much of my life, I have resisted struggling. I know that sounds weird, since on some level, resistance IS struggle. Efforting. Pushing against what is, rather than accepting it. I have often denied that some things are just plain difficult, ...
