This weekend my 9-month-old granddaughter is visiting me, with her parents.

And, for the 12th season, I’m walking alongside forty-eight remarkable, wise and powerful women as they journey through the miracle of discovery and creative exploration that is the program I teach in the spring and fall of each year.

Are You Kind?

Peace Love Kind

Note to readers: You may or may not have noticed that it has been almost two months since my last blog entry. Since I began blogging in April of 2009, I have never once taken a break from blogging. Blogging has been a way to digest my experience, dive into deep spiritual inquiry, and integrate my spiritual path. But this year, I have found myself with less urgency to blog, not because there isn’t much to write about, but because there has been an inner draw towards stillness and a movement out of the left brain realm of language and into the right brain territory of the heart, where words can sometimes be distracting. I also needed to create an inner spaciousness to digest some of the miraculous experiences that have happened to me, some of which I relay in my upcoming book The Anatomy of a Calling: A Doctor’s Journey from the Head to the Heart and a Prescription for Finding Your Life’s Purpose. (You can preorder it here if it calls to you.) That said, today’s blog has been bubbling around in me. Thank you, as always, for caring about what I write and allowing it to help you better know your own true self. I have a feeling more blog posts will be bubbling forth rather soon, so stay tuned!

Why Ambivalence Might Be The Key To Your Success

Ambivalence

I am often asked how I achieved my current measure of success.

My response is a markedly unglamorous soliloquy of: It’s been years and years of hard work, often little money and little bits of progress.

Raising The Bar Is Not Always The Answer

Raising the Bar

“The secret of success: Get up early. Work late. Strike oil.” - John D. Rockefeller

The phrase “raising the bar” is usually used when we are told to strive for better. We hear that we need to “raise the bar” when we want to be more successful so we need to be more competitive. Aiming for better, farther and faster is a great goal to have, but is it how our lives should be?

How These 11 Letters Can Make A Difference In Your Life

man thinking

Ever since I can remember I wanted to be more successful. I grew up poor but lived in a wealthy neighborhood. I read every book I could lay my hands on about how to become more successful. I also tried everything they said to do to become successful, but things just didn’t work out as they said it would for me. The books I read told me that in going after what you want you should go with a full head of steam. In doing this, you will make people “bend to your will.” This was not the case for me. You may have gone this route before and succeeded but for me, I have never found this approach to be successful. Instead, I burned bridges, alienated people and ultimately did not get what I wanted. Maybe there were times when I did “win,” but for me it didn’t feel like it. This “win” was at the expense of relationships, happiness, peace of mind, and personal health, which I felt, was not worth it. As years passed, I read more and more books and followed what they said. For some reason, things never seemed to work out as they said they would, so finally I said, “I’ve had it! Maybe it’s not me. Maybe all these $#&% ‘experts’ are wrong!”
