Flight of the Soul

Flight of the Soul

When God Speaks. I Listen.

I don’t know a lot about why things happen. I do know it all has a divine order for each of us. Destiny unfolds one step at a time. When I walked out of my marriage and went into a Gypsy Summer that has now lasted four years I learned to stop questioning any of it and got into a practice of being open and in the flow of everything, in the moment to moment grace and possibility of life unfolding in its most magnificent way.

If I have to be honest I wasn’t quite sure why Flight of the Soul emerged at this point in the process of my life. I had a moment where I decided to reach out to Beliefnet and see about blogging for them. The response was an immediate “Yes” and the beautiful process of letting God design the expression began. I had an idea for a title that just didn’t seem right to the inspiration editor Jennifer Jones and she suggested I think about some other ones. Being the mildly efficient overachiever I am I gave her a bunch of titles and at the last minute threw in Flight of the Soul that had emerged in my consciousness from a beautiful loving relationship that cracked my soul free from where it had been hiding. Without too much delay Flight of the Soul became the selection and here I am.


As I was sitting with my first writings and thinking about how to organize everything and move forward on this blog. I got an email that my dear friend’s father had died.

My friend’s sadness of her loss had the effect of multiplying everything within my own system of grief and compassion that needed clearing. All the losses over the past years that had been left unaddressed tapping me into releasing the universal grief and stress in a flood of tears. Whatever torrent that had built up and taken place in my life that had been unaddressed naturally found its release and flow as I witnessed another cycle of life come to an end – all in service of what wants to be born.

If I was asking for a sign as to what Flight of the Soul should be. I got it.


Never the spirit was born; the spirit shall cease to be never;
Never was time it was not; End and Beginning are dreams!
Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit for ever;
Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems!
— Bhagavad-Gita Or Song Celestial


Grief is a part of life and I can honor it and see the beauty of it as part of the soul’s expression. I can love and extend comfort and solace for the family and their tremendous loss, I can join them with compassion.

Thanks to Pete Rugolo Flight of the Soul has found its musical director and will evolve into a place to share more personal stories that touch my heart, to open up to being home and to answer God when he calls. In the days ahead we’ll open up to the way to healing. I am grateful to Beliefnet for their work in being a place to express the faith of a lifetime and this moment with inspiration and love.

Riposi in pace Pete Rugolo beloved father, beautiful soul and Emmy-Winning Composer who lived to 95. Blessed thanks for so much beautiful work and love and life and creativity that flowed from everything you did. I am with his family and friends and colleagues in honoring the man and his legacy as he now rests in the arms and hearts of all the love and angels in his new musical home that will be that much richer for his arrival and expression.
