It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Welcome Into My Mind

“True navigation begins in the human heart. It's the most important map of all.”

I've Been Thinking...

Some weeks I have no idea what to write for my essay here in The Sunday Paper. Some weeks I just sit down and start writing, not yet knowing where my mind will take me.

This is where it took me this week.

How To Make Aging A Blissful Experience

What if you could make aging, the bane of human existence, a blissful process instead of a painful one? This question is almost never asked, certainly not by researchers into aging. No matter what new scientific track holds promise—and there are dozens of them—one assumption is never challenged, the assumption that aging is a negative process, like getting sick. The two go together, since the elderly are subject to conditions like cancer and heart disease far more than the young, and eventually most people die from a final illness.

How to find your Destiny in Life?

Each Day ask yourself questions like these:

Expansion, Not Decline

Is your body demanding your attention lately? Are your emotions on edge? Do you feel as if your health is declining, your sense of optimism impaired? You are not alone. Almost everyone I know has been facing some kind of physical issue or challenge over the past year or so, including myself. Breast cancer flipped my daily world view upside-down. Yet, as I gradually learned to experience it with a peaceful, accepting heart, calm arose within me to face whatever I needed to without despair or negativity. My soul guided my body, mind, and feelings throughout. Sometimes we have to pass through depression or emotional upset to reach that overview, but it can happen. This is the challenge of these times we are living through, especially during a global pandemic.

5 Leadership Styles to Know: What’s Yours?

What does the word “leader” mean to you? 

For me, leaders are visionary, big-picture thinkers with the passion and charisma to inspire others to bring their vision to life. I believe that leaders aren’t born, they’re made – and that anyone can become a leader if they put in the time to cultivate the right skills and mindset.

Imagine What’s Possible For You

My reality, the entirety of my reality, has been enlisted to provide me with the evidence of my wholeness. Every single person in my life has now been enlisted with bringing me the experience of my wholeness. 

Life is showing you who you are. But most of us who have been coming to Call to Calm every morning have seen who we are. Life doesn’t have to show us our unconscious anymore because we don’t have a problem being a human being. No matter how we are showing up, we don’t invalidate ourselves anymore. We are having an experience. The sooner we accept it, and embrace it, the faster we return to peace and operate from completion. This is being in the flow, in harmony and in receiving. This is where it becomes powerful. This is why it’s magic time!

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Everyday Life

It is the simplest of paradoxes:
You can’t see what you are in.

As soon as you try, you are no
longer in it. This is the trap
of self-consciousness.

You can’t see the ocean
when you are in the ocean.

You can’t see the bird flying,
if you are the bird flying.

You can’t see how the lungs
work when you are struggling
to breathe.

Nor the contours of the path
when you are breaking trail.

Only looking back can we
make sense of what has
unfolded.

Looking forward, we can
only open our heart like
a fire to the sky and live.


A Question to Walk With: Describe a trail you have taken or made in your life and what it looks like looking back. What do you see now that you didn’t see when you were in the middle of it?

This is from my book of poems in progress, The Fire Dialogues.

Best Spiritual Plant Gifts for Happiness and Peace

Spirituality is a great way to grow as a person and become more in tune with your highest self. Therefore, faith, mindfulness and a peaceful lifestyle are generally the best ways to achieve inner peace and happiness in your day-to-day life. However, nature plays an enormous role here. This is why indoor plants can be so beneficial to your mental health. So if you’re like that, or you have someone special who is into spirituality, here are the best plant gifts that will make them happy.

Receive Generosity

Do you accept the gift?

The Practice:
Receive generosity.

Why?

Life gives to each one of us in so many ways.

For starters, there’s the bounty of the senses – including chocolate chip cookies, jasmine, sunsets, wind singing through pine trees, and just getting your back scratched.

Anti-Aging Needs a Body That Never Ages

We live in a time when breakthroughs are sought to prevent or reverse aging. For the longest time aging itself, although a universal process, was a deep mystery. There is no gene for aging, and nothing is completely predictable, because no two people age alike, not even identical twins.

Operating from Peace or Pain

Everyone on the planet is either operating from their peace or from their pain. When you trace everything you can’t stand about the world back to its origin, you’ll find pain. 

When I look at the people I grew up with, they didn’t know any better. Were they bad people? No, they just didn’t have a choice. Society wasn’t constructed for them to thrive, the system wasn’t constructed for them to get ahead. People in states of survival make choices that don’t make any sense to other people who aren’t surviving.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Stacks of Wheat

So many thought Monet
was making it up,
imagining wildly
how things might be
if God held them closer.

But what he did
was much braver.
Like a human microscope
he kept looking and looking
as warmth left the trees
as waves remade the sea
as loss slowed into peace
undoing hard men.


He watched
strange flowers open
where only silence had been.

He focused so far in
that everything shimmered.
He proved by the strength
of his attention that
nothing can keep
light out.

It’s a small leap
to say that love
works this way—
a light that lives in the bones,
just waiting to be seen.

So why not
prop your heart
out in the open
like the easel that it is
and dab its blood
on everything.


6 Best Ways to Spend Time with Your Family

Many of us take our families for granted even though it is the biggest source of happiness and peace in our lives. If you feel like you should boost the time you spend with your kids, spouse or parents, there are many ideas on how you can spend that time productively. Here are a few best ideas that will make your family time unforgettable: 

Cook and eat together

The habit of having at least one meal together a day will change your family dynamic for the better. This meal can be either breakfast or dinner if you can’t have lunch together because of work or school. Use this time to share your feelings and thoughts, offer encouraging words, discuss your day and share a lot of laughs. If you have time, you can prepare weekend meals together. Gather interesting new recipes, buy groceries and do your best to recreate meals around the world. This is a great opportunity to learn about different cultures and foods and expand your menu.

It's the Mothers Who Will Fight

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get—only with what you are expecting to give—which is everything.”  —Katharine Hepburn

I've Been Thinking...

I hope you had a Happy Mother’s Day, my friends!

I cannot help but think of my own mother. In fact, I’ve been thinking about her all week. I’ve even been talking to her all week. Yes, I have. Even though she has been gone more than a decade, I still turn to her for guidance.

Solving The Cosmic Riddle: The Road Less Traveled

Some years ago it was considered a secret that explaining the universe had reached a dead end. Only the most informed scientists talked about it, but eventually a major shift occurred, and the public caught on. Instead of a Theory of Everything, which had been the holy grail of physics, a state of confusion, conflicting theories, advanced mathematics, and wild out-of-the-box speculations defined the mess that had come about. No one could say where space, time, matter, and energy came from, and they still can’t.
