Alignment with the Way Things are Right Now

"Nothing and nobody, no outer circumstance or event, no word or deed, can cause you to suffer. Suffering is always your own internal resistance to the Way Things Are Right Now, your hidden refusal to experience what you are experiencing. Suffering always originates from a NO to the Universe as it is, a NO to life in all its pain and glory.

But remember, acceptance does not mean that you have to give up on the possibility of future change. Acceptance is not passivity or disengagement from life. Not at all! True, intelligent, compassionate, creative, and often unexpected change arises from a place of absolute alignment with the Way Things Are Right Now, a profound and intimate engagement with this juicy moment as it actually is, however 'bad' you label it."

Quotes and health tip of the day... 10/22/13

We awaken in others 
the same attitude of mind 
we hold toward them.  
     ~ Elbert Hubbard

Weeds are flowers too,

Health Tip:  Grounding: Earthing or grounding is simply standing on an electrically conductive material on the Earth such as grass (ideally wet), a body of water such as the sea or a river, or even wet sand.

As you carry out your life and build up mental and physical stress throughout the day, your body becomes positively charged with free radicals. These free radicals are known to contribute to inflammation which can lead to aging, immune disfunction, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cognitive decline.

Eating foods rich in anti-oxidants can help to neutralize some of these free radicals, but according to some researchers such as Clinton Ober and Dr John Briffa, Earthing can have a much more significant effect.

As free radicals build up an overall positive charge in your body relative to the negatively charged Earth, grounding yourself on a conductive surface as mentioned above helps to supply your body with ‘healing’ electrons.

Give it a try – try walking barefoot with direct contact on the Earth for at least 15 minutes a day for the next 30 days and see how you feel!

Marianne Williamson running for the U.S. House of Representatives!!


The biggest threat to our country today is not from armies invading our shores. The biggest threat to our democracy is not bombs falling from the sky over an American city. No, our biggest threat is a pattern of a thousand cuts – the slow but now constant chipping away at our democratic freedoms—one capitulation to moneyed interests at a time, one new gerrymandered district at a time, one government surveillance program at a time, one limiting of our voting rights at a time, one intimidation of journalists at a time, one Patriot Act at a time, one National Defense Authorization Act at a time, one Trans Pacific Partnership so-called trade deal limiting our sovereignty at a time. So at what point— after how many moments when Americans mutter to ourselves “Ya gotta be kidding me!”—do we stand up to our own government and say, “Hey, guys! Whose side are you on??”

That question will not be answered in a meaningful way until it is asked in the most powerful way. And that means not just from the sidelines and not just from online petitions. The question must be asked more often by people sitting in those seats, in that building, in that city.

And that’s why I am running for Congress. I hope you’ll join me.
