Abundance and Climate Change
... whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Moreover, God is able to make every grace abunda...

Facing Eternity
Thirty years ago in Dharamsala (India), while attending teachings given by the Dalai Lama, I met a Swiss Tibetan Buddhist woman who told me something interesting. I quit smoking, she said, because when I die I don't want to spend my time in the Bardo Thodol...

Remembering
A long time ago, my mother-in-law told me that she saw life not so much as circles (or ellipses maybe), but as a spiral for ever revolving upon itself, moving along, whether

When I say, Maya Angelou
When I say … “I am a Christian” I’m not shouting “I’m clean livin’.” I’m whispering “I was lost, Now I’m found and forgiven.” When I say … “I am a Christian” I don’t speak of this with pride. I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide. Whe...

Noli Me Tangere
She thought it was the gardener and said to him, “Sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and I will take him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” Jn 20:11-18 In his shadow I delight to sit, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. He brought me to the...

Adios To All That
The other day as I was walking in viejo San Juan, my mind whispered to me, "Adios to all that" as in, Goodbye to all that. These words have a familiar ring, so I checked. Robert Graves wrote an autobiography by this title in 1929. In 1967, Joan Didion publi...
