The Greatest Moral Challenge Of Our Time Is How We Think About Morality Itself
It would be easy to conclude that there’s a deficit of morality in the world today.

But, I’d argue that there’s not a lack of morality in the world; there’s too much.

The Bridge of Empathy: Connecting to Others Through Compassion & Awareness|
As we open to the full range of experiences within ourselves, we become aware of what we perceive in each moment, no longer denying some feelings while clinging to others.

Opening the Door of Communication to the Voice of Our Spiritual Power

Opening the Door of Communication to the Voice of Our Spiritual Power
Although the Voice for God is always present and available, God will not speak to us until we have invited Him/Her to enter our awareness.
