10 out of 10 would agree 10 out of 10 people would agree that what that person did was not okay – or at least that was what I was telling myself. But, would all 10 really agree that what this person did was inappropriate? I didn’t actually survey anybody. I just made it up […]

How quickly can we get unhooked?

How Quickly Can We Get Unhooked? I truly hope that I can get to the point where I am unoffendable. But, I’m not there yet. In the meantime, the game is to see just how quickly I can get unhooked. Step one: realizing we are offended, or hurt or hanging on to something, or . […]

Relax and breathe

Share this:

Relax and Breathe My flight yesterday was delayed by 1 hour because they closed the door and took the jetway away while there was still a maintenance employee on the plane. Consequently, I missed my connecting flight. The flight from LA to Tokyo was 12 hours so I had plenty of time to wonder if […]

Our packrat brains

Our Packrat Brains Imagine a packrat’s room stacked full of old newspapers, boxes, and junk. The room isn’t useable because there’s so much unneeded and not useful stuff.

That’s not my project

Share this:

That’s not my project  It is impossible for us to be responsible for anyone’s mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual well-being because we are not in control of their brain. But, we often try to be responsible. And when we do, we inevitably end up suffering. My mom is having challenges in all these areas as […]

Leaving the past in the past

Leaving the past in the past  We so often think that in order to change and for things to be different, we need to make up for the past. Yes, the past has got us to where we are today. But, the future is created in the now. For example, let’s say I want to […]
