Oprah and Your Destiny

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Oprah’s final show was filled with wisdom. In this clip from the show  Oprah talks about each of us having a calling. You do have a calling and finding your calling is both an adventure and the way to fulfillment. Our society is set up to keep us safe. In this context, safety can also keep you from your calling. You have to step out of your comfort and safety zones to find your calling. It is a hidden treasure – a treasure well worth the adventure.

Safe Island

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

I watched a video, The Great Bell Chant, by the Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh  and he used the term “the safe island of mindfulness”. I had not thought of mindfulness and living in the present moment as a safe place before. It is. The safety comes from the authenticity of the present moment. If you act from the past or the future, you are not on solid ground. From the present, you know where you are and can make the best judgments.
