I can’t believe that I did it!!!! I did my extended silence for 2 days!!! Wow what an experience.  I had been avoiding meditation my whole life and thus avoiding a relationship with my higher self.

WEEK 13-MasterKeyExperience-It’s Time to Put Myself First!

The cement is continuing to reveal the past beliefs and behaviors that I have clung to.  I’ve always been embarrassed to be me.  I’ve lived my life cheating the gal in the glass living a life of quiet desperation, always wondering what was wrong with me, afraid of the world.

Week 9 –Master Key Experience- “…..but the greatest of these is love, love, love”

I have been studying and thinking about for a very long time and how to bring it about more often in the world.   What isn’t love is hatred, judgmental opinion, gossiping, anger, criticizing when someone appears to be acting up or misbehaving, labeling people who aren’t like us, objectifying a human being as a ‘thing’ […]
