A Child’s Cloud and Resolution

I spent a great deal of my life feeling depressed. The words attached to my feelings were many. Some were about hopelessness and my own inability to create change. Some were about deprivation. Some of those thoughts were just kind of doom and gloomy, as if there were many things wrong in my life, and always would be.

The amount of courage, perseverance and strength it takes to be compassionate far outweighs the ability to go to war.

Deep and radical caring. What does that mean?

Does it mean you have to help every friend move?
Does it mean you have to go to every party, even if 3 are on the same night?
Does it mean that you have to feed every single hungry person in the world?

Deep and radical caring means that inside of yourself, you agree that every other person’s well-being is as important as your own. It does not mean you are responsible for the happiness of others. It means you acknowledge, deeply and radically, that they are as important as you are, everyone!

When everyone’s needs are as important, choices and decisions are arrived at easily with much less, if any, friction.

Grrrrr!!! How to Tame The Tiger Within

I grew up in an angry household. By the time I was eleven, I could hold my own in any screaming match, insult contest or stare down. Because this was the language of my childhood, I was proud to be so adept with this powerful emotion.

We go to school to learn to read, to learn math and to learn to write. It is just as important to learn how to love, to learn kindness, to learn how to heal! It is just as important to learn how to have the fullest access to your own fullest potential and to embrace yourself completely!

I Love You

For a long time I had dreamed of recording a myriad of voices from every age and walk of life saying – I love you.

Propelled by an intense desire to fill the enormous gap that is created by people feeling unloved – I created this video to help others access the healing power of love around the world.

Love is such an incredible gift, and the most powerful healing force. It is the bond that somehow links us all together, and a way in which to create inner healing, and heal one another.

This video has created a real and potent force of love that is available for anyone at anytime to receive. I am overwhelmed and humbled by its online popularity, and in particular – the many dramatic and touching responses that I have received.

It is such a heartwarming confirmation of the love that REALLY IS in the world, and in the heart of each individual. I really feel the total realness and sincerity of each person who contributed to this video – and I believe that together we have created an ACTUAL TOOL OF HEALING!
