Desiring and Allowing

December 19-21, 2020 “By allowing and desiring yourself to be more open and being increasingly receptive and welcoming, and by consciously “joining with” the Infinite—from which you were never apart—you give permission to Life to flow through you unimpeded.”-Erich...

VOTE! 2020…but Not JUST in the Election!

Oct. 25-26, 2020 What follows is adapted and updated from my blog at this time four years ago. Not much has changed, apparently! (If you’ve had enough of the election AND have already voted, feel free to skip to the THIRD PARAGRAPH, noted below.  If you HAVEN’T...
