On this holy Tuesday before Easter my thoughts are drawn to the teachings of Jesus as outlined in the New Testament: Love thy brother as thyself, The meek shall inherit the earth, Honor women and children to name a very few. Teachings are a gift from God. They come to us through our hearts and are generally messed with by our minds. I say that in light of another thought from yesterday’s Newsreel about human rights for women in Afghanistan. How easy it is to ignore those teachings or turn them to our own purposes.
I was originally asked by a health magazine to write about one of my Reiki experiences and this resulted in the story entitled "Small Miracles`" detailing my Mother's experience with Reiki. After its publication, my father, who has been telling stories all of his life, encouraged me to write more. My writing is a way of teaching which feels natural to me following my long history as a technical writer and software teacher. I write when spirit moves me to do so about topics that spirit presents. I hope you will enjoy reading them and find some small nugget of gold for yourself.
