Affirmation for 2009

2009 is a year that I know will be very eventful, fruitful and inspiring year for my charity, Food for Life Global, and myself. I can feel it happening already as my body slowly transitions to a 100% raw food (live vegan) diet and I move beyond the shackles and limitations of the past. It’s…

God in quality not in quantity

I see a lot of people these days in the conscious community claiming to be God. Yes, we are qualitatively like God, but certainly not in quantity.

Love and Yin deficiency

This afternoon I went to court for a PL trial. It is a temporary ruling for financial obligations of both spouses in a divorce settlement.
