the prayer prescription series

Ulysses, Zen Master

Ulysses Zen Master

As I prepare Prayer Prescriptions 14 Spiritual Remedies For Long Lasting Health for publication, I was inspired to dedicate the book to Ulysses The Dog: "To Ulysses, Zen Master, Dog of all Dogs, Noble, Heroic, Magnificent, And dog, once again, Ferocious and growling at every single dog On the street." This prayer is part of the prayer prescription book: Dear God/ess, I found a pin at work and no one knew where it came from. So I took it. It says: "Please Remain Calm." My … [Read more...]

Outgrowing What Was Never Yours

PROOF first in the Prayer Prescription Series

When I first became a nurse in 1984, the world of medicine still had some humanity left within it. The book, Prayer Prescriptions For Nurse Healers, reflects the humanity that still existed at that time.   I would like to see hospitals and clinics get back to that model of emotional intelligence.

Your Dream Life–Podcast 151

dreams

The last few days, I have been semi-off the grid. It is difficult to reconcile spiritual mystical experiences with the battleground of human conflicts, war and grievances. Yet we keep trying, don't we? I remember reading about a man who went on a silent retreat for one year. When he came back and started listening to the news, it had the same tone of acrimony, division and strife. We can't solve these problems with the same mind that created them. If we keep trying to do so, then … [Read more...]
