The other day I found myself unwittingly pondering some experiences from my past of which I am not particularly proud. An announcement concerning the upcoming reunion of a hockey team I used to play for triggered the unpleasant trip down memory lane.
I would like to share with you my meditation experience and approach! Having said this, I would like you to know that I am no expert in meditation, nor am I a superior meditator.
Loving compassion! Two words we seem to be hearing a lot lately! Given what is going on in the planet, we could certainly use loving compassion!
Loving compassion is a popular form of meditation. It is essentially about having empathy towards suffering and the desire to do something about it.

I am reading, The Root of All Healing, by Misa Hopkins, an American metaphysical healer who overcame MS. It’s an excellent book [on which I will do a full review when I’m finished reading], very much aligned with my own approach to healing.
I recently watched a Super Soul Conversation Oprah Winfrey conducted with Gary Zukov, author of Seat of the Soul. During their delightful chat, I was reminded of how important it is for me to acknowledge and be grateful for the wonderful gifts of this Parkinson’s experience!
The last four months has been a remarkable journey of ebbs and flows, fearful moments and spiritual insights, culminating in a renewed focus on acceptance, surrender, gratitude, forgiveness and love!
Conflict arises when one party tries to impose its will on another party and the second party resists, or worse still, counters by trying to impose its will on the first party.
We are presently having such an experience on the road we live on!
On our recent trip to Toronto, Mari and I got around to talking about dark energies. She told me she doesn’t believe in them. She believes that dark energies are just energetic beings vibrating at a lower frequency. I realized when she said this, that she was right, and not just how we think about spiritual beings, but also how we approach our health, particularly when we are dealing with a chronic health condition.
Last week, I went on a fly-in fishing trip in northern Ontario, Canada. Aside from the swarms of mosquitoes and flies and the considerable back [and butt] discomfort from sitting in a boat for several hours a day, it was an awesome trip! Good for what ails you, as the saying goes!

I’m riding a bucking bronco! Bobbing on a stormy sea! Being tossed about on the Salt & Pepper Shaker ride at the fair! For the last three months I have been on a heck of a ride on my journey to recovery! Triggered by medical marijuana, I have been processing and purging fear and other long buried emotional stuff that has left me feeling panicky, anxious, frustrated and experiencing very intense symptoms! It has been a challenge!
