As seasons change, now to winter, we can find joy in the change, in the new pattern, the new weather. Now the fallen leaves are dried and crisp under our step. The air has turned colder and drier as well. It’s scent is fresh, waiting for you to come out and enjoy it. And in a short few weeks, you will begin to hear the birds announce the coming spring.
Seasons wrap us with change and offer new joys.
Look out the window on arising and love the new day and its weather.
Walk out the door to your day and love the weather - rain or shine - love it.
Be in the day, dashing if you need, or slowly moseying if you can, and love the day and its’ weather.
Settle in for the night in gratitude for the lovely day and its weather. Whatever it was, it can be wonderful because you were in it, living another precious day, loving and being loved.
For dentists in 2020, here's a great idea on how to create a solid, healthy plan for their future and the future of their patients.
“You are the light of the world.” ~ the Bible, Matthew 5:14
As I write to you on this New Year’s morning, I am getting beautiful loving messages from around the world, from hearts of love that I love, some of whom have been co-workers, some patients, some parents of patients, some students / seminarians, some dental colleagues, and some friends who share our journeys of life.
Some, truly, I barely knew; many I knew well. With each and all, we have shared happy, joyous times, talks, sharing.
As my heart swells and thrills to these messages, to each heart of my heart, I am grateful to be a vessel, through which the love flows, part of the process of shared light of the world.
Isn’t it just precious to be a drop in the vast ocean of God, a thread in the fabric of this life of souls having a human experience?
You are indeed, the light of the world.
While watching the recent movie, CATS, I noticed that two of its main actresses appear to have crossbites. Just what is causing the huge increase of crossbites over these last two decades?
Your Place in the Cosmos
You came for a reason. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to leave this world a better place. You, yes you.
“When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” - FRED ROGERS
You have the power to do remarkable things... should you choose to accept the assignment.
What can you do when everything has gone wrong? What can you do when you have no money? What can you do in a disaster?
You, yes you, can do remarkable things. You can find it in you to reach inside and change anything for yourself that you want to change.
You are remarkable. You are full of love.
You, yes you.
Have you sometimes watched the moon rise, just after sunset?
It is another of those treasures of experience that can take your heart and hold it in peace and joy.
A sunset sky streaked with pink and gold, cut with jagged edges of purple and blue, left by the sun’s departure.
And, on the other side of the horizon, a perfectly round pale moon begins its ascent. Soon the pale has become bright yellow gold.
Enjoy your sky, your sunsets, your moonrises. Re-connect with nature’s peace. Find the calm, the answers, the questions in it all.
It is there. You are there. Don’t miss another day, another evening, another moment of the glorious that we call life. Hold it in your heart.
Excellent patient care often requires doctors to do things not paid for by insurance. Here's how to approach this situation if you're a dentist.
A rainy day can be a contemplative day.
Curled up in a wing chair, feet on the ottoman, steaming cup of coffee in hand. A beautiful moment to contemplate, cherish and savor.
Never mind the metaphorical rainy day, but rather imagine the actuality of the soft rain, the very green of the wet trees and plants, and scents of the moist air laced with wet plant, mud, decaying fallen leaves and fresh rain.
Grab your opportunity soon, to ponder and enjoy just such a moment, hopefully on a weekend day of rest. Inhale the scents, absorb what your eyes can take in and listen to the sounds, no matter the season, of the insects, birds, and dripping rain.
Go to gratitude.
Can you feel it? As you relax into it, think of so many things you are grateful for - loves, work to do, goals to meet, and the rainy day.
Close your eyes and just be.
Why did you become a dentist, anyway?
To make more money?
To own and run your own business? To help people?
Here is the route to finding purpose in your profession.
