When we think about our purpose in life, it's tempting to want to list impressive goals and accomplishments.

We want to know we are here for a reason and that we will make an impact in the world.

Discovering a new cancer drug, for example, or joining the Peace Corps, o...

“This is a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.”

From one of my heroes, Maya Angelou, this beloved quote illustrates how she not only had a way with words, but a way with gratitude.

Her poetry, books and wide variety of other creative offerings drove at the...

Just think.

There can be a precious day of the week when we don't wake up and look at the phone.

A day when we can linger longer in our morning meditation.

A day when we can stretch, breathe and align without a phone chirping on the corner of the yoga mat.

A friend called yesterday and shared how she was suffering from daily anxiety and panic attacks. She was the third person to relay a similar story in past weeks. This can't be good.

My tinnitus came on gradually as a result of a long music career standing next to a guitar amp and in front of a drum kit.

(I don't blame you, Andy, really I don't.)

The first few times my right ear made a shrill scream, I was not alarmed. I thought it might be my angel...

Yesterday, as I was peacefully writing, four horses stampeded down the hill from the farm next door, just a few yards from the window, trampling the brush and racing into the clearing.

One minute I was in a quiet Zen-like Om-worthy cabin, and the next I was in the wild...

I have long held on to the belief that we live in a benevolent universe where the power of good far outweighs the power of evil.

In the relentlessly positive world that I envision, there is always an available beam of light, shining out from the depths of even the wear...

As I sit in the morning sun considering ways to celebrate joy in small things, I imagine a colorful tube reaching from the sky to me.

Through this open, joy-transmitting tunnel, I feel beams of sheer bliss coming right into the top of my head and landing with laughter...
