The simple path to peace … what Unite in Prayer is all about

If we’d all tune in and listen deeply enough to the Perfect Quiet inside, we’d all know the Way, the Truth and the Light for ourselves … We could wander in a trillion different directions and remain One, united beyond time and space, free like children playing, knowing what to do without making any sense. We’d […]

The miracle that changed the trajectory of my life

In 2009, my son was miraculously healed of kidney disease. His nephrologists told us to expect a lifetime of limited growth, dialysis and kidney transplants. This was especially devastating news because I was already at a point of emotional overload, feeling helpless to stop the suffering of another family member, which had gone on for […]

How to stop taking criticism and judgement personally

The other day at a local science museum, my kids discovered a talking robot that uses facial recognition software to interact with people. When they pressed they button, the human-ish looking robot said “look into my eyes and smile.” Then, after making some random electronic computing sounds, it declared  with authority what their age and […]

Deeper Life: Slowing down to acknowledge God’s presence

Deeper Life: The simple art of surrender

When are you going to realize? It’s not your job to scurry around, grasping at glints of vanishing light- The Kingdom lies within. A radiant, beaming presence – the simple answer to your prayers – is waiting patiently inside, for you to acknowledge Him. When will you allow Him to rise up from within you? […]

What to expect when you follow the still small voice of God

On my honeymoon in Hawaii years ago, everything was perfect except we could never figure out how to get to any of the obscure nature viewing areas we’d read about. Whenever we asked for help, the locals led us on strangely roundabout paths. One would direct us this way to a random landmark that looked like […]
