An encouraging journey. . . .
lessons on perspective.


Learn to stand back and let other take their turn as leaders.  There will always be new opportunities for you to step out in front again.

Sit in the dark.  It will teach you to see and hear, taste and smell.

Pet a furry friend.  You will give and get the gift of now.

Take a day off alone; make a retreat.  You can learn from monks and hermits without becoming one.

Direct your life with purposeful choices, not with speed and efficiency.  The best musician is one who plays with expression and meaning, not the one who finishes first.

Take time to read . . . the Bible, poetry, great books.  Thoughtful reading is enriching reading.

Take time to wonder.  Without wonder, life is merely existence.

Work with your hands.  It frees the mind.

Once in awhile, turn down the lights, the throttle, the invitations.  Less really can be more.

Let go.  Nothing is usually the hardest thing to do. . . but often it is the best.

Take a walk. . . but don't go anywhere.  If you walk just to get somewhere, you sacrifice the walking.

When things are in chaos and you are in a frenzy, ask yourself:  What is right about now?  Chances are, you already know what is wrong.

When something does not insist on being noticed, when we aren't
grabbed by the collar or struck on the skull by a presence
or an event, we take for granted the very things
that most deserve our gratitude.
