Challenge sounds so much more manageable than struggle. And when we’re in it, we need all the help we can receive.
We may go through phases when we fragment daily, only to piece ourselves together enough to repeat the cycle the next day. You’ve been there, you know what I mean. Thankfully, these cycles aren’t permanent. But it is a treadmill of mindless routine that seems to replace mindful ritual. Yet it’s the routine that allows us to carry on when we are broken down to only the basic elements of getting through the day… the hour…. This too shall pass, I know.
We may find a gift of power hidden in ourselves when we are driven so very far past our limits. It is here where we find another of our deep truths, and more of our passion. Sometimes it is also found by its noted absence during these trials.
I also am comforted by the thought that these truths and passions of Self are also learned through peaceful times–we are not doomed to turmoil in order to grow.
I say it’s time for more of this, now.
“A dare to live fullly right where you are”, this book does not pretend a perfect practice–but it delivers a spiritually supported process.
Constantly, consistently, with personal failings. Embrace the imperfections, begin again. The journey itself is a lifestyle that will transform and ultimately save you.

Many of us read the lovely quote from Fred Rodgers that went viral this week. Ubiquitous as it was, I’d like to launch us into the weekend with a reminder of his sweet and comforting words. “When I was a boy,” he said, “and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”

A big Thank You to Rohan Healy–his review of Dianne Gray’s book The Everything Theory was my final cosmic message to go get this book! (See? People do make a difference for others, whether they know it or not.)
From the very beginning of Dianne Gray’s suspense thriller and all the way through, I was wonderfully overwhelmed with the feeling of being immersed in a hugely successful action movie! If you are looking for a moviemaking opportunity, I highly encourage you to explore this author and her story The Everything Theory.
Luke Canning is a 17-year-old amateur astronomer who, along with a select few others, has discovered a 10th planet returning toward Earth in its 4000+ year revolutionary cycle. Closely tied to this event are the connections of past advanced civilizations, their messages for the present, and how this relates to our future. Understanding the information contained within archaeology, mythology, native tribal cultures, and more becomes crucial to the returning planet’s timing, and multiple entities are chasing Luke and his group across the world to end their lives for it.
Oh my gosh, I could not put this thinking person’s thriller down until there was no more to read! Although I hugely enjoyed the digital version, when finished I promptly purchased the print version and added it to our public high school’s library collection. This is a story that needs to reach many people–for its sheer intelligence as well as its literary craftiness. It strongly elevates the reader’s head and heart, and is also a wonderful storytelling experience and example. Again, if you are considering creating a motion picture I implore you to investigate this author and her story.
I purchased The Everything Theory by Dianne Gray at Amazon. It can also be purchased elsewhere, including Smashwords. Be sure to visit Dianne Gray at www.diannegray.wordpress.com. I enjoy her blog, and am investigating her other books, too!
