Spring is time for new beginnings. 

Plow under the old unhealthy ways.  

Choose for what is good and beautiful and healthy.


I learn from everyone.

I value all experiences as learning opportunities.

I seek to be awake and offer awakening to my world.

I choose to stay awake and remember always to trust and free myself and others.


I make mistakes and I learn.

I make mistakes and I forgive.

I make mistakes and I appreciate.

I make mistakes and I honor their value.

Mistakes are fun, safe and easy when we see their value.

Mistakes are a wakeup call.

Mistakes are an opportunity to see things differently.

Perhaps mistakes are not a mistake at all.

Sin is an archery term for “off the mark”.

A Course in Miracles says: “God’s Son is sinless.”

Perhaps we have no sin, but only the need to wake up.

Maybe we are mistaken in the judgments we lay on a brother.

Maybe we need to wake up.

Maybe we have fallen asleep.

Maybe we stopped remembering to forgive

Maybe we covered our eyes and failed to see the Light,

Maybe we are afraid of our own projections.

Maybe we need to reconnect with our perfection.

Maybe we need to step away, listen within and learn.

Maybe we can learn only when we are paying attention.

Everyone needs to be seen with forgiving eyes.

Everyone deserves to feel safe and to beloved.

Everyone wants to give and receive the best.

Everyone desires to be heard, valued and respected.

Are we pushing anyone away?

Are we avoiding anyone we fear?

Are we disregarding the rights and value of anyone?

Are we denying others what they desire?

A homeless man wants a safe place to stay and rest and be fed.

He comes to a church where people are afraid of his appearance and mental state.

The people are afraid and want him to go away.

What do we do when we are afraid?

A teacher-speaker or someone of different faith and values wants to share.

His words are avoided, judged, criticized.

The people have prejudice, are afraid and do not listen.

What do we do when someone believes differently than we do?

Is it a mistake to honor all paths and all people?

Is there room for everyone?

Can we make it ok for each person to learn from their own experience without judging theirs.

Can we allow mistakes to wake us up and teach us through our experiences?

Learning as we go,
