Being Cradled in God’s Arms

The Positivity Project

I proudly claim to be an Opti-Mystic; one who sees the world through the eyes of possibility. I may have come by it genetically, since my parents generally looked on the bright side of things and reinforced that all would […]

Praying With God

  It came to me a few days ago as I was sitting in services at Circle of Miracles that perhaps praying to God is not the same thing as praying with God, since for me, God is not an […]

Routine and Ritual

  This morning as I was prepping to go to work, it occurred to me that I get dressed in the same order every day. Underwear, bra, pants, blouse/shirt/sweater, socks, shoes, jewelry, makeup, coat and gloves  (depending on the weather) and […]

Wings

  This afternoon I received a group email from Arielle Ford that read Debbie Ford Gets Her Wings. I wondered what brilliant thing Arielle’s younger sister had done to earn them and I made a mental note to read it […]

Willing To Exhale

    This morning, my friend Shaun Stephenson sent me a message in response to an article I had written about sexuality/spirituality. I had told her that I was stretching comfort zones by exploring that realm in writing, not because […]

It’s All About Relationships

Last night, I took a leap into another world of words and thoughts, feelings and flow as I launched a radio show called It’s All About Relationships, on Vivid Life Radio. It ties in so beautifully with the Bliss Blog, […]

Daddy’s Girl

  Before the sun has peeked its late Winter’s beams from behind clouds and the stars have melted back into the black, I am offering Birthday greetings to a man who would have been 89 today.   A fitting time to be […]

I’m In Love With A Big Blue Frog

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to ride the way back machine in both directions in the presence of a multi-generational audience that sang, danceed, swayed, clapped, smiled and laughed with delight to the words and music of septugenarian musician and […]

Lifter Upper-er

In one way or another, we are all hoisted on the shoulders of the ones who came before us, like a child rising above the crowd on those of a parent, the better to watch the parade pass by. Many’s the time […]

Kid President

  It starts out with the words “I think we all need a pep talk.” and quotes a legendary poet (“not cool, Robert Frost”). The speaker of these words is a cherubic looking youngster with the wit and wisdom of […]

Blank Canvas

  “I love how each day starts with a blank canvas. What masterpiece shall we create today?”-Mark Semple Each morning, we are given the gift of 1440 minutes. It comes in a package wrapped with a ribbon of infinite possibility. […]

Living Slowly

Ever listen to a CD by  musicians who were not on your radar screen and find yourself entranced by its charm? The entire recording by an unusually named group; Helen’s Funeral Band feels like a caress. Combine the silky voiced sounds reminiscent […]

Draining or Sustaining?

  What if you had a decision to make that involved your livelihood, relationships, your health, where you live, who you choose to have in your circles, or whether to pursue new ventures?  How would you face it? Daily, I […]

The Luminous Broadcast

  Imagine  light and energy beaming out from you, radiating in all directions, careening about people around you, even if you don’t speak or have physical contact. Do you wonder what impact that might have? This morning, I had the opportunity to […]

Heart to Heart

  This morning before I headed out the door, I donned a red shirt and red socks. It goes beyond liking the vibrant, energizing, fire-y color and stands as a symbol of something vital. Today is National Wear Red Day, […]
