Easter Sunrise

We are five weeks into Lent. Easter is right around the corner. For Christians, this is a celebration of freedom and change – resurrection and new life.

The Uncertainty of Change

Posted by:

This is the second in a series of posts on Big-Hearted Change. The election is over and change is in the air. Emotions here and abroad are running the gamut from excitement to fear, jubilation to sadness. We really don’t know what to expect. And that’s OK. Why? Because true change is not about knowing what lies ahead of us. It is more about responding to what no longer serves us, and wanting to make it different.

“There are basically two motivating forces for change. One is fear. The other is love. Fear takes us further into bondage. Love sets us free. Fear separates us from our true self and our purpose.

What is the Interface Between Science and Spirituality?

Posted by:

Definitions
We all know what science is, but what is spirituality? In the interest of brevity I am suggesting that spirituality is the love that surpasses all understanding, perfect love, unconditional love, unity love that has no opposite. In this article I will indicate this grand form of love by capitalizing all the letters of the word LOVE.
