Do You Want To Fight It, Fix It Or Friend It?

reeds bending in water
We are all familiar with how to fight or resist the enemy.  We can kick, scream, scheme, or pretend it doesn’t hurt us.  In my experience, it seems we are also all pretty familiar with fixing the perceived problem as well.  The problem may be in society, in our partners or children, or in us.  What if this life is not about fixing the problem or fighting the issue, but rather what if it is about living the mystery or making friends with life? Sounds appealing…living the mystery…friending life....

On Divine Order

On Divine Order

The quality of your being is shaped by your choices. What you do, or don’t do, shapes who you become. Doing isn’t necessarily better than not-doing, though in our hyper-driven world, we sometimes confuse action with wisdom, or at least cede it the moral high ground.

How Love Can Trump All In Politics


Are you a peacemaker or an agitator? Every individual has the ability to be either a peacemaker or an agitator. In this time of global tragedy, terror, and fear mongering, I am calling upon the peacemakers.

The True Meaning Of Christmas

There’s a touching scene in the TV classic “A Charlie Brown Christmas” where Charlie Brown, discouraged with the over-commercialization of the holiday, cries out, “Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” To this, his sidekick Linus responds by recounting the story of Jesus’ birth as it’s told in the book of Luke:

Easing Someone’s Suffering…Without Suffering. Is it possible?


My first name is actually Veronica (long story as to why we went with Danielle.) Naturally, images of Jesus and Veronica fascinate me.

As Christ carried the cross to his crucifixion, Veronica was overcome with compassion and stepped out of the crowd to wipe the blood and sweat from his face. Miraculously, a perfect impression of Jesus’ face was left on her shawl — which became known as the Veil of Veronica.

Awe & Mystery As Food For The Soul

Awe and Mystery

I never thought much about the difference between awe and mystery until I started hanging out at the proverbial kitchen table of Kitchen Table Wisdom author Rachel Naomi Remen, MD. Soon after I bellied up to that table, awe and mystery, along with a side dish of wonder, started showing up on the menu. I don’t know why I never thought much about awe and mystery before meeting Rachel. After all, just like her, I was trained as a doctor. Doctors are blessed with a front row seat on awe and mystery. Over 10,000 times, I was the first human a new baby saw after slipping out of Mama. At least 100 times, I was the last person someone saw before transitioning to the other side of the veil. Countless times, mystery showed up in ways I couldn’t explain—like how I would know something about a patient that I couldn’t possibly know with my five senses or the results of any laboratory tests, and yet very often, what I knew would save a life.

Bomb Blasts and Belief

Bomb blasts and Belief

As I wrote this on the morning of November 14th 2015, my heart was broken open. Tears fell from my eyes and from my heart for the people of Paris, in the aftermath of the terror attack.

Confessions Of A Closet Muslim


I am a “closet Muslim”. I don’t wear my religion on my sleeve (or on my head in the form of a hijab). I don’t discuss my religion in polite company. I just go about my business.

10 Signs You're On The Right Track To Finding Your Calling

Find Your Calling

Finding and fulfilling your calling can be confusing, disheartening, anxiety-provoking, disappointing, and frustrating, but it can also lead to the greatest feelings of deep fulfillment you’ve ever experienced. When you know—you just know—that you’re here to be an instrument of sacred service for the Divine to use you as a vessel of love amidst a world in crisis, you’ll find yourself on just such a hero’s journey—because your calling will reach out for you like a magnet draws forth metal. This kind of journey is not for the faint of heart, which is why I wrote my new book The Anatomy of a Calling. Consider it a sort of field manual for anyone on the hero’s or heroine’s journey of embodying your soul’s purpose. (You can watch the book trailer here.) I wrote this book for anyone who just knows that you’re here on a sort of spiritual mission, one that your soul has been preparing for your whole life, which may be quite mysterious, filled with unexpected twists and turns.
