So, there I was, standing on the sidewalk, shaking from the inside out, having a meltdown for the first time in my life, when I heard a voice within me saying, “If you don’t get rid of this client right now, you’re going to be dead within three months.” I terminated the relationship immediately and…

Instant Karma

Over the years I’ve seen evidence of people receiving instant karma for piddling amounts of money for small injustices but never had I seen monumental injustices and humongous instant karma played out so perfectly.  The story goes back many years ago.  I used to do health programs for people around the world.  Once a month…

Meditation is for Everyone!

There are probably as many ways to get into a meditative state as there are leaves on a tamarind tree.  There are also almost as many theories about when, where, and how a person should meditate.  Although the classical teachers of meditation would unarguably classify this as heresy, I think that for each of us,…
