Focusing Light On Compassion

Yesterday I shared that we are embarking upon a new level of our shared journey. Much of what we will be discussing was learned and came to me by revelation during the 11-day odyssey, I’ve been referring to as “My Revival”.  These items are also very timely here as we prepare for Christmas, on thisContinue reading “Focusing Light On Compassion”

Psalm Days

Let’s start this week on an uplifting note.  Celebrating in song, poetically lifting ourselves higher we can find out together why it’s important to proclaim Psalm things up on this edition of “Becoming Today”. So what are Psalms?  Why are they important?  And if they’re supposed to be poems how come they don’t rhyme?  TakenContinue reading “Psalm Days”

Crossing Bridges

Already we are a week into our latest “time change”, so it seems timely to look at whether or not we are ready to continue forward along this shared path we call “Becoming Today”. Thorough self examination, meditation, contemplation and prayers are the places where we can begin to formulate the answers we seek. InContinue reading “Crossing Bridges”

To Lead Responsibly

We have had earlier discussion centered around issues of a government designed to be “by and for the people”, being used to target micro-minorities across the nation.  Our conversation then, as well as several we’ve had since, reminded me of another voiced nearly 80-years ago. Then also there  was a call to step up andContinue reading “To Lead Responsibly”

Are You Trusting?

Trust is one of those things we’re constantly told we should be doing and sometimes we believe we are. However that’s not always the case even if we believe what we are saying.  On this edition of Becoming Today it’s time to discuss trust, what it is, why it’s important and whether or not youContinue reading “Are You Trusting?”

Calling For Compassion

Yesterday’s edition of “Becoming Today” had a tone different than any of the other nearly 600 conversations we have shared. In “Life Happens”, I noted that at times when people are facing the most difficult days and catastrophic events of their life they are not greeted with compassion or treated with dignity and respect. InContinue reading “Calling For Compassion”

Are You Getting Enough Fruit?

Our discussion picks up not from yesterday, rather from Tuesday, when we talked about how you too are the recipient of “Gifts That Keep On Giving”. As I mentioned then, they offered many rewards, that’s why we’ll take this edition of “Becoming Today” to determine if you’re getting your daily recommended fruits. The gifts weContinue reading “Are You Getting Enough Fruit?”

Gifts That Keep On Giving

We’re not talking about that, or if you are receiving two of the same item from different people, or even that time when your husband forgot he already bought you that, for an earlier anniversary. Rather our conversation on this edition of “Becoming Today” will examine Gifts That Keep On Giving, that you may notContinue reading “Gifts That Keep On Giving”

No Expiration Date

Tomorrow marks another anniversary of one of the greatest tragedies to be experienced by the American people. On 9/11 lives were lost. terror gripped the nation. A promise was made to never forget and yet it seems too many are willing to do just that. The responsibility of leadership is just that to take theContinue reading “No Expiration Date”

UnLearning: Scarcity

We began our week together with a discussion of why “UnLearning” is so important. Now moving forward we’ll focus on the third of three areas that I have come to realize we must address with our “UnLearning”. Let’s talk about why the sooner you can release and overcome scarcity or the fear of lack, theContinue reading “UnLearning: Scarcity”

Let’s start this day on an uplifting note.  Celebrating in song, poetically lifting ourselves higher we can find out together why it’s important to proclaim Psalm things up on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

Which Fork Do I Use?

It’s a question we’ve all needed to ask at one time or another. And not just at a formal dinner table. “Which fork do I use?” also applies to our journey, as we reach those points along the path where we must choose the next direction of travel. Now our shared path of “Becoming Today”Continue reading “Which Fork Do I Use?”

Recalling The Week That Was

Do you realize we are already more than half way through this month? Another week of this year has just flown by; 33 down, just 19 more to go. And what a  week it was. We’ll move ahead by stepping back to review, on this edition of “Becoming Today”. Monday began a new week andContinue reading “Recalling The Week That Was”

Do You Trust, Trusting?

Trust is one of those things we’re constantly told we should be doing and sometimes we believe we are. However that’s not always the case even if we believe what we are saying.  On this edition of Becoming Today it’s time to discuss trust, what it is, why it’s important and whether or not youContinue reading “Do You Trust, Trusting?”

Names Matter

Personal identifiers are apparently now perceived far differently than I was always led to believe. A name was something to take pride in, live up to and share as a way of making connections. However it seems, especially as we emerge into our ‘post pandemic” realities. That must no longer be the case. We’ll exploreContinue reading “Names Matter”

Are You Ready?

We say we are ready for things. Ready for things to get better. Desiring for more. Even claiming to be ready for change. But are we really?  On this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll look at the question of whether or not you are ready to receive; plus we’ll explore three areas of focus toContinue reading “Are You Ready?”

Compassionate Consideration

This week our shared focus has been on issues of ensuring an atmosphere conducive to growing and becoming. At times our discussion has pointed towards a need to change our combined perspectives and perhaps redefine the so-called norms. In order to do this we need to find a starting point. That is where compassion returnsContinue reading “Compassionate Consideration”
