'I'm Not Broken?' A Conversation With God

By Sunny Skyz on August 13, 2020 / 60 views

By Sunny Skyz on August 13, 2020 / 60 views

Me: Hello God. God: Hello... Me: I'm falling apart. Can you put me back together? God: I'd rather not. Me: Why? God: Because you're not a puzzle. Me: What about all the pieces of my life that fall to the ground? God: Leave them there for a while. They fell for a reason. Let them be there for a while and then decide if you...

Saved By Beauty

A dear friend sent me a letter and handmade card in the mail today. On the outside of the card was a cut out picture of a hummingbird in mid-flight. Its wings were a blur while its little needle shaped beak plunged deep into a flower. Below it was a quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky: “The world will be saved by beauty.” I smiled when I saw it both with my face and my heart. Looking at it...

Dictionary Prayer

There are chaotic political scenes in my city these days, the spread of a highly contagious and deadly disease, and finally, I suddenly lost a beautiful, sweet, most amiable 9 yr-old husky (rescued at 9 months old). To slow myself down and allow myself to open up to clarity in all this "mess", I went to a big, old, red book - Webster New World Collegiate Dictionary! Certain tools are...

The Most

You can learn a lot sitting in a parking lot. The other day I was sitting in my car with my sons reading a book while my daughter finished grocery shopping. From time to time, though, I would look up and observe what was going on outside. One of those times I saw a huge, new, bright red, Cadillac SUV pull up in the parking spot beside me. Out of it stepped a well-dressed young woman in high heels. She seemed...

Letter To The Angel Who Saved My Life

In 2016 I tried to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. People were photographing me in their sick, morbid, selfish curiosity as I was preparing to jump. Tears filling my eyes and... it was guttural. When they started to take pictures of me I knew in that moment that nobody gave a shit. No one. But there was one heaven sent angel, if you will, who approached me. I was...

This is Wee-Man....he was so abused in the first 3 years of his life that he never ever warmed up to any person, in fact he bit every owner he had before me, I've always just given him his space and not pushed myself on him, waiting for him to warm up to me when he was ready. This works most of the time, but this angry little dog is very different, other dogs won't even sniff him, they keep...

Messengers Of Light

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 20, 2020 / 1,203 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 20, 2020 / 1,203 views

It was a dark, overcast night. Thick, dark, gray clouds had made sure that there was no starlight or moonlight to greet me as I walked out on my porch. Still, I kept the porch light off because I didn’t want to be munched on by bugs and buzzed by moths on this sticky Summer evening. I stood there for awhile letting my eyes adjust to the lack of light. My dog stood beside me waiting patiently for me to...

A Lost Little Deer

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 15, 2020 / 1,258 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 15, 2020 / 1,258 views

It was a sweltering day in late Summer. I was a young dad working in a local lumber mill. It was dangerous, back-breaking work that paid very little. In the year I had worked there only four other people hadn’t quit and been replaced with new faces. Those of us who stayed did so only because there was no other work to find to support our families. On this day the fans weren’t working and...

Time Travel

Falling through the clear blue sky, images of her childhood flashed past her eyes, as though a VCR was pushed in rewind mode. There she was, age three, building a sandcastle on the beach...looking up to see the bright sun shining down on her cute little face. Time flew by as those small little hands changed into sturdier ones which were trying to make a castle out of Lego blocks. Moving on, those hands were...

It's kinda cool to think that someone somewhere is having the best day of their life today. Someone's hearing 'I love you' for the first time today. Someone's going to get the job of their dreams today. Someone received some kinda good news today. Tomorrow it could be your best day ever. So keep...

I Drank Alcohol For 30 Years, But Today, It's Been A Year Since I've Had A Drink

By A Friend on July 14, 2020 / 631 views

By A Friend on July 14, 2020 / 631 views

This started out as a temporary health kick. I got home from the 2019 Oregon Country Fair, where I volunteer every year and where I’d had my last drink, and my best friend and I mutually decided to abstain from drinking for six weeks, as part of our preparation for Burning Man. In addition to being an incredible adventure companion, she has helped inspire many new things in my life, but I don’t...

Just Had My First 'perfect Month'. I Worked Out For At Least 30 Minutes A Day, Everyday.

By Erin on July 14, 2020 / 646 views

By Erin on July 14, 2020 / 646 views

If you had told me in March that I’d be living the life I am living each day, I would’ve responded that you’re nuts. Although I’ve been living pretty spiritually and becoming increasingly aware of the things that were holding me back for a few years now, I still had a lot of behaviors that were rooted in my limiting beliefs. I was still not moving daily, I was...

I Finally Feel Like I Am The Creator Of My Experience. And You Can Be The Creator Of Yours Too.

I used to think I was a victim of life. Everything bad happened to me. My dad died right before my 5th birthday. My mom was full of unresolved things and super angry for most of my childhood. People left me always, by death and by choice since I was young. Being adopted has its own abandonment issues even though I was very fortunate and had a blessed upbringing that i never would’ve had. My second dad...

Accept that perfection doesn't exist. Your relationships will have problems, your car will break down, someone else will anyways have a better phone, a newer car, or a bigger house than you, no matter where on the social ladder you stand. Constantly chasing perfection will keep you permanently stressed. That doesn't mean you should not try to better your life, just know that if you...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 08, 2020 / 958 views

It was the middle of the night and I was sitting in a chair thinking about all the blunders I had made in my life. I was working the overnight shift in a Special Needs group home for mentally handicapped adults. While everyone else was asleep I stayed awake in case of an emergency. Left alone with my thoughts I had gotten to brooding about those blunders I had already made in my short life. I was a young dad...

Be Careful With Your 'I Am' Statements

By A Friend on July 08, 2020 / 912 views

By A Friend on July 08, 2020 / 912 views

When we say things about ourselves our brain is programmed to believe them. So you need to be careful with your words and thoughts. For instance, if you are saying "I am broke" or "I am lonely" or "I am so depressed" our subconscious mind will help us live up to those expectations of ourselves even when those expectations aren't what we really...
