MIRACLES

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Miracles are in the eyes of the beholders. Last Sunday Gayle and I were driving back from a wonderful event we had co-imageshosted in Santa Barbara at the home of Lalla and Rinaldo Brutoco honoring my wonderful friend and client, Master and Dr. Sha, author of the bestselling Soul Healing Miracles book series. There were many miracles that occurred at the Saturday party, but the miracle that caught my attention was  an amazing synchronicity of bumping into  my other good friend and author, Uwe Albrecht at a gas station in Santa Barbara.

We had bonded with these wonderful young girls and were not sure when would next see them since they live in Germany. We were disappointed not to have been able to have a proper good bye.

We are taught as young children to do. We start with learning to sit up, walk, talk, play, and we move on to learning how to interact with others, read, think, study, and work.  Being is actually a state that does not require normal thinking.

Being does however require focus. How can this be? How can simply being require focus? With focus doesn’t being just become another form of doing?  Surprisingly, focusing does not require doing, but it does require being present. And being present is not nearly as easy as it sounds. (more…)
