Not Enough vs. More Than Enough

What is Enough? I have had a wonderfully productive week sorting out which projects my foundation will support (financially) once our funding comes it. It’s been highly educational discussing their needs and desires with (say) the local library and the physics department where my friend Michael is a professor. I usually ask, “What do you…

Timing…

Timing… Those who know me (personally or professionally) have probably noticed that I’m an impatient person. This is both ironic and predictable: like other Generators (in Human Design), my Strategy is to WAIT to receive.  So… I’m designed to be receptive (which is in alignment with the divine feminine principles of wisdom, ordering, and receiving).  What all…

Spring in Santa Barbara

Spring in Santa Barbara Oh, to be in England, now that spring is here…  Well, not really.  But I am in Santa Barbara for a few days, soaking up the delicious sun and admiring the intense greens of new grass and leaves.  It will be another month before we get the same level of springiness…

Fasching and Lent

Fasching and Lent Back in 1972, my father’s side of the family had a pleasant, sunny flat in Vienna. Now, Austria is a strongly Catholic country, and I’ve noticed that Catholic countries are, in general, much more fun-loving than the colder Protestant countries like Germany, England, and Scandinavia. Maybe it’s about having more sun and…

Dreams II

Dreams II, Two, Too… Once again I had bizarre dreams this morning – really bizarre – and that reminded me to write about REAL dreams – positive dreams in life, dreams that reflect one’s purpose, and that bring us into alignment with the divine. Those would be the dreams we were working on last week…

Dreams or Nightmares?

Dreams or Nightmares? For the last couple of days, I’ve woken up from dreams that were much longer and more detailed than usual. These were not pleasant or helpful dreams – they were narratives full of nasty people and/or bizarre situations that I really do not want to experience in my waking life. The curious…

Serendipity (continued)

I am writing this from the Admiral’s Club in Chicago, my second visit of the morning.  Here’s how my travel has gone so far: My friend picked me up on time to drive me to the airport, with ease and grace.  As I waited to go through the security checkpoint for my flight to Chicago,…

Serendipity and Alignment, Part I

Serendipity and Alignment, Part I Serendipity derives from a short story about three princes traveling to Serendip; their jaunt took in marvels and coincidences. When you’re in alignment with your own divine atomic blueprint of creation, then serendipity becomes your ground state, allowing for all manner of delightful synchronicity. It’s all about alignment – your…

FreeCell

FreeCell I like playing FreeCell – you know, the online version of Solitaire. I have it on my iPhone. When I can’t sleep, or when I’m winding down, it engages that left-side detail-oriented part of my brain and helps me – well, that hemisphere, really – to relax and stop fidgeting about the day. I…

The Joy of ReValuation

STOP and reVALUE Yesterday I was chatting on FaceBook with a friend in Malta who is struggling to create his workshops. He has a fabulous array of talents – and ideas – but finds it a huge challenge to work out the details. Clearly, he’s primarily a right-brained processor, living in a society or culture…
