Anne Palenske was a childhood friend with whom I’d stayed in contact over the years. We didn’t talk often, however, when we did speak our conversations were lively, full of laughter, and great memories. Anne and I shared a love of horses. In fact, she was one who introduced me…

I don’t think it would take much on my part to convince you that things are in terrible shape. The “rumors” of wars are not mere rumors — but actualities. We see the evidence live nightly as we attempt to keep ourselves from being numbed by the extreme suffering happening…

Yesterday, as I was leaving my office, I noticed a greeting card on the floor. I have no idea how it got there but intuited that it was my invisible guides ringing the doorbell of my consciousness. The front of the card was a picture of a sleeping cat. It…

  Constance Miles is a dear friend and poet. Recently she sent a poem, West Country, which describes her back yard teeming with life. West County To escape the heat, I don’t emerge until dusk, like a hummingbird moth, flitting from flower to flower. I deadhead roses, dahlias, snapdragons, gather…

Humans are not a “stand-alone” species but are interconnected to all life in unseen ways. The diversity of life exists everywhere. It even surrounds our homes.

Recently I came across an old CD of some excerpts that Michael and I picked out in 1990. As a listener to New Dimensions, you’ve heard me say that one of my prayers is to notice the signals coming from spirit. So, with curiosity as to what I might find…

Editor’s Desk: Excerpt from Dougald Hine’s new book At Work in the Ruins

  A friend sent me this article which led me to request permission to reprint it. I find Dougald’s words deeply comforting because I believe he is going to the heart of what I call these “liquifying” times. When I use the term liquifying I’m referring to the caterpillar that must liquify before…
