The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. Lao Tzu Coming from a country where for centuries kings and queens issued decrees, I’m very aware of royal proclamations over their subjects. Not that modern monarchs have this ability – good job, since those decrees didn’t always work out so well for everyone. Off with their head, was pretty commonplace, and not just in Alice in Wonderland. And for those of us who read fairy tales as kids you’ll remember how often the king – and yes it was always the king in days of yore – would decree something; making proclamations about glass slippers and such. What I never realized was how much we are all decreeing things over our life. Man can decree a thing and it will come to pass.Neville Goddard The sort of decreeing that I’m talking about is of the…

[success] The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye, but found by the heart. ~ Unknown [/success] Yep, you read this correctly.  I did fly with Usher.  Yes, that Usher.  The one who just won a Grammy. Well on the same flight to be precise.  That count’s as flying with him.  Right?  He wasn’t at the awards ceremony, because he was on a flight with me! I first noticed him at the airport and had to speak to him…honestly I couldn’t help myself, much to the consternation of my Darling One. He definitely said I shouldn’t go chasing after stars at airports, but I’m just going to check out that it’s really him I said.  Of course it wasn’t all I did.  I just had to say something, anything. I wasn’t a pest…well I didn’t think so…I just told him I loved his music.  He flashed that amazing smile, said thank…

“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstances but by our disposition.” So said Martha Washington.” Everyone wants to be happy. Right? Preferably right now. Who wants to wait….not me for sure. Some years ago I was in Russia with my husband as part of a business delegation. We partners were given amazing guided tours, visiting all the usual places and some that were less than usual. We received preferential treatment everywhere we went, since we were guests of the government, even given glasses of champagne on a flight from Moscow to Keiv, much to the amazement, or even amusement of our fellow passengers. I never did quite work it out. I tried to always sit next to our guides to chat – not…

[success]Harmony is one phase of the law whose spiritual expression is love. ~ James Allen[/success] What’s the difference between simplicity and minimalism?  I’ve been reading a lot about both lately and I must say it seems to mean different things to different people. Hey, we’ve even reached the stage where we have magazines based on simplicity and minimalism.  It’s become mainstream…and yet, strangely, I found myself swimming against the tide. I’m definitely not in the same category as one of my friends, who was perfectly happy with a room, some books and his weights. On top of which, I would never have made a pioneer woman, travelling the countryside in a conestoga…I always loved my hair dryer too much. So there was me, and there were those who took to whatever their version of simplicity and/or minimalism is, like a duck to water. The challenge I had, was that neither…
