Just Today

Just Today

I have a new philosophy. I'm only going to dread one day at a time. Charles M. Schulz “One day at a time”, can seem to be a cliché, but in reality, it brings to mind a deep truth. One so understood and known, yet in spite of that can easily be forgotten. Just today, that is all we have, and every day is ‘just today’. We can get ourselves in trouble (well I do) when I start to think of all the days that are in the future when I do that things can weigh on me. It is however an illusion, for

It is very colorful and has a very wise message said in very simple language.   Trust God Clean House Help Others I hung it up just behind our serving line so it could be enjoyed by all who pass through. You could say it a philosophy of life that looks simple and probably is, but may take some di

The loss of a community friend/employee

The loss of a community friend/employee

The loss of a community friend/employee   Even if I know someone who has a lot of health problems, and has been sick for a long time, it always takes me by surprise. So John D. worked for us for quite a few years. I am guessing about 15 years. He was one of our main drivers for taking people to their doctor appointments. As well as on occasion sitting with monks who were in the emergency room. He was a good driver and for the most part very gentle and kind with the monks that he drove. For a f

Cough it up and out

Cough it up and out

Cough it up and out One day a woman asked me why she needed to forgive her parents, who were very 'cruel' parents. In responding, I decided to use a very graphic image. "To forgive is like spitting up a hairball I told her. 'There is some healing in doing that. Over time, as you have to forgive over and over, the hairball gets smaller, and your pain becomes less. Your parents no longer have a hold on you". Then we talked about praying for her parents. Why (?), she asked again. So I respon

Facing our own inner ‘demons’

Facing our own inner ‘demons’

Facing our own inner ‘demons’   Life is in reality a marathon for us. There are unexpected pressures that arise. Today you can say that many are being asked to face their own inner darkness so that a conscious choice can be made to allow in the light. This world is not a kind place to live, though there is much beauty as well. It is only in the human heart that kindness and compassion can be experienced that overflows from those who seek to become more loving towards themselves as well

Shadow People

Whatever the phenomenon of "shadow people" are is up for debate. I can't explain what I saw myself, but I wasn't always the only one seeing them. On my mom's side of the family, starting with my grandmother and grandfather both, then my mom, then me, there's kind of a lineage of strangeness. I can't say for sure why it is we specifically can do what we can do, but, as far as I know, it's only in my direct line, e.g., none of my aunts, uncles, or cousins share our "abilities", if that's what you

The cliché

The cliché

The cliché (Though it need not be) There are many clichés that are used in our culture today. We hear them every day ad nauseum. Yet they can be true for all that; in fact they can get to the heart of the matter they speak of, if pondered and their over-familiarity defeated. So that the wise center can be understood and inner balance and healing accomplished. For me, the most difficult obstacle I face on my journey towards inner wholeness is the relationship I have with myself, one that is

The BOOM

So, today, I was sitting on my couch with my son, and out of nowhere a huge BOOM shakes the house. I called my mother to see if she heard/felt it, and not only did she, but apparently it was both heard and felt miles and miles away. And afterwards it sounded like there was thunder rolling for a good ten minutes. Nobody knows what it was as far as I've heard.

Meeting with a dying beetle

Meeting with a dying beetle

Meeting a dying Beetle   This morning I was watering the plants here in the Monastery Retreat House. Most of the plants I have I simply put in water and just watch them grow. Each plant is a work of art. As I was going out onto the Retreat House back porch, that overlooks our garden, I spied a beetle struggling. It was a beautiful specimen, with a long sleek body and long antennae. It was dying. I am always surprised to see an insect actually dying since I am sure the odds of living that long

Would You Rather Mostly Forget About It?

An older man who I knew had successful heart surgery years ago. After his surgery, he was asked if he wanted to join a support group for those who also had heart surgery. However, he decided not to join the group.  He just wanted to forget about the heart surgery. Of course, he couldn't completely forget about it, because if he did, the chances of him getting sick again would increase.  He had to take care of himself and take care of his heart.  One way he did that was by going ou

My Doppelganger Family

Ok, so I figured I'd start my first post with one of the less weird happenstances I've encountered: how me and my father are EXACT copies of my grandmother, Catherine, who I get my middle name after. Now, don't have too much of a heart attack, my fellow TVD fans. The name is just a coincidence. I never met my paternal grandmother, but from what I heard she was a great person. She died before I was born, conceived, even. My dad, eh, not so much, but that's neither here nor there. The point is, ou

Constantly Evolving

Some people are stagnant - it can be so difficult to accept that some people don't want to grow and gain wisdom and maturity. However, we can't force people to evolve - so we have to accept that we sometimes outgrow people and places. Because you have to accept your own evolution!

She'll love me. She'll love me not.

Let's not even get into is she lovable yet, and assume she's amazing in every way. I don't have a great track record of thinking about what another's response is going to be to what I do, and I'm tired of settling for it's better to have loved and lost; so I'm interested in trying to think of others for a change. I'm old now. When I was a young man 30 year olds were ancient, and I'm 34 now. In my mind the cemetery has got to be right around the corner: am I wrong? But, seriously, where I'm think
