Delighted! Signs the collective is moving to service to others ethic


  Dearest readers, I am always looking out for clues and definite signs that our shared reality is shifting from a service-to-self philosophy based on greed, separation, and lack to one that is expansive, holistic, conceptual, compassionate, and generous.  In this nascent reality that we are all evolving into and building together, all people, animals, […]

We all want […]

Guilty Pleasures: How Can We Responsibly Enjoy Life?


Hello readers, A question most responsible and caring people might ask themselves in the complex and globally connected world we live in is this: how can we make responsible choices that benefit ourselves and don’t hurt others?
