This one is easy.

Over the last couple of weeks, my days have been experiencing a lot more warmth and sunshine. How?


I’ve been fortunate enough to have been blessed with a nearly daily opportunity to give and receive hugs. And, to be really honest, it’s pretty much been the highlight of my day. I’m having tonnes of fun with it.

So, to each of you out there, that’s my challenge; how many hugs can you get and give in a day? I mean, real hugs. Not those half-assed, bs hugs where you kind of put your arm around the person and brush shoulders. I mean, embrace someone. Put your arms around them and let them put their arms around you. Let them support you and you, in turn, support them. Let go of the stiffness in your body and melt into the other person; feel them. It doesn’t matter who; your wife, your husband, your kids, the mailman. Make a real connection with that person for those brief moments.

It’s those brief moments that have been carrying my day.

be Love.


Love: 101

Be a silent force of Love.

You don’t have to move mountains or cross oceans. You don’t have to work miracles or lead the masses. You don’t have to change the world. By changing yourself, the world will change for YOU.

Offer a blessing of Love to everyone you encounter. Family, friend, stranger and foe; EVERYONE. Offer them all a blessing of Love from your Heart. You needn’t say or do anything. Just open up to the Love that is already in your Heart for every person that is part of your life. Let every person you interact with be your reminder to give them a blessing of Love. When someone smiles at you; remember to offer them silent Love. When someone gives you hug; hug them with your silent Love. When someone frustrates you; REALLY send them your silent Love. By reading this, by introducing this idea into your consciousness, you’ve already started the assignment.

By giving, you will receive.

No one needs to know what you are doing. No one needs to know about your assignment. Go about your day with this Love in your Heart, offering it in as many opportunities as you can. Your experience will be your affirmation that you can create change. You are a silent force of Love.

“You must be the change you want to see in the world”

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi


heart work – meet force with feeling

We are all presented with conflict in our daily lives. Whether with our family, friends, co-workers or even strangers, instinctively, most of us are conditioned to “fight back”. STOP. Recognize this opportunity as one to live through your Heart. Whatever the situation, big or small, STOP. Stop before you even begin. Take a deep breath and acknowledge what’s happening. Tell yourself that you won’t get on the defensive. Tell yourself everything will be okay no matter what. Instead of firing back, ask a question. Instead of getting tough, find softness. Exercise calmness and compassion. Try to understand what’s being communicated to you. Don’t worry about being right or wrong. Absorb what comes to you. Your pride will get put in the backseat; but this will allow your Heart be the driver. If two speeding, uncompromising objects meet head on, the result is collision and catastrophe. But, if one of those objects can open up, absorb and embrace the other, you’ll create a larger more powerful force that is now, hopefully, moving in the same positive direction together.

Keep practicing.  Meet force with feeling.
