Is The GOLDEN RULE a fairy tale?
150 150 Carol Davis

Many of us have heard and, in fact practice,  “Be the change you want to see.”   Treat others as you want to be treated.”   This morning I was thinking about children (and many adults)  who indeed try to live in the practice of being kind and loving but can be confused when they…

Undo To Be You
150 150 Carol Davis

It seems to me that many of us are looking for ways to be more, do more, and know more.  I hear statements like, “I need to be more enlightened,” or “I need to get more spiritual.” The list is endless of positive ideas we can come up with – especially at the first of…

CHRISTMAS IS NEAR and DEAR
150 150 Carol Davis

I love Christmas but I think my relationship and/or experience with this holiday may be different than most people – or, at least, the people I know.  The Christmas holidays I grew up with looked like any other traditional, white, American, Christian family.   Church, lights, tree, music, presents, and ham dinner. From the outside – perfect. …

Put a little ING in your life.
150 150 Carol Davis

My entire life I have been a compulsive “learner” with an insatiable quest for knowledge. What has changed for me through the years is the “why” of it all. Learning for me has evolved from head smart to heart smart. As a young girl, and for most of my life, I believed if I knew…

I am overpaid
150 150 Carol Davis

What is mine to do to make a better world?  That is a question I have asked every day for the past 10 years, or so. For the first  27 years of my life I was a taker and I used and abused everyone who crossed my path and I ended up sleeping on park…

WHITE PRIVILEGE – Do those words offend you?
150 150 Carol Davis

Why, why, why are many white people offended by the label, “White Privilege?” I have some ideas based on my personal experience, which I will get to, but let me first state what my definition is of “White Privilege.” If you are white, you have it. It has nothing to do with what you believe,…

FORGIVING IS NOT ABOUT FORGETTING
150 150 Carol Davis

After my dad died, friends asked if I was going to keep the house and move in and, in fact, a few were begging me.  I thought about it and that is actually one reason I was standing there in the empty house after we had an estate sale. It was stripped clean and I…

Stress, Anxiety, and Panic will SAP your energy
1024 683 Carol Davis

Today I got to experience that very thing – my energy was almost completely sapped by stress, anxiety and near panic, until………… it occurred to me to practice what I teach. I often surprise myself when I remember I am human, too, and today I came very close to having a complete “melt-down” which is…

FEARS – forgotten and future
150 150 Carol Davis

It is important for me to remember to look at how far I have come, rather than how far I have yet to go. However, there are some days I still forget. For example, I am remembering a time when I could not prepare a meal – even for a good friend – without being…

PASSION IS THE POWER OF PRAYER
150 150 Carol Davis

Have you ever wondered why some of your prayers seem to get answered and others not?   I have and I have had years of training in how to pray for maximum results. I am a licensed practitioner with Centers for Spiritual Living and prayer is our primary function.   Any yet, I have my moments when…
