Who Inspires You?

Who among your friends and family are an inspiration to you? When I’m feeling that I’m insignificant, I like to look around and take inspiration from people I know that make a difference with big and little gestures. Here are some of the experiences that have helped me grow:


   *My grandmother was a Polish immigrant who sought to locate her relations in the refugee camps after the holocaust, but instead found 10,000 survivors without food or clothes. So she set about supplying the entire camp with used clothing, canned food and everything else she could get donated from friends and family.  

   *My former love made a habit of compassionately giving a few dollars to street people outside of supermarkets who just needed a meal.

   *My bookkeeper and dear friend Ann came and stayed with me or delivered food after my back surgery, regardless of whatever else was going on her life.


These acts have inspired me to step up to the plate and “pass it on.” Who do you know that you can emulate, and can inspire you to be a shining example to someone else?

10 Tips for Spending the Holidays with Relatives

You know, unlike a lot of people I know, I had really great parents.
They are both gone now, and they certainly had their faults, but I’d
have taken them over anyone else’s folks. So each year during the holidays
I’m reminded by my friends how crazy their relatives make them–whether
it’s mom who can never be pleased or cousin Dave who’s an embarrassing
drunk. So this year, I put together a fun little guide based on some
principles in my book, called "How NOT to Let Your Relatives Ring Your
Holiday Bell." You can get it at this address:
It’ll be in the gift guide and its been excerpted for a
hot new online magazine called NoNiche. It was also featured on the
front page of Feel free to pass it along to your
friends when you hear them uncap the "holiday whine."

Welcome to the new Conscious Creation blog!

Thank you for visiting me here!

I created this blog to share news, notes and ruminations on the world of Conscious Creation. With each entry, you mind find tips, hints or strategies — or perhaps a look at how the mass media is interpreting spiritual/manifesting messages.

I might quote a sage or two; report on meeting a visionary leader; recommend a book, CD or DVD; comment on something in the news; laud someone doing something transformative; or perhaps report on some exciting development that points to an important turning point for our planet.

I look forward to keeping you on top of how we are all partaking in the transformation of our future!

In love, peace and joy…
