Boat in Sicily

My maternal grandmother, born in Sicily and immigrated to the States in the early 20th century, expressed many wise colloquialisms. She lived close to the ocean at Castellemarre (Castle-by-the-Sea) outside of Palermo and watched the sparkling aqua blue waters of the Mediterranean during her youth. Taking lessons from nature and applying common sense, she'd warn us, "When you see a storm in the ocean, don't put your boat in the water."
Get out of the way!

New-thought philosophy purposefully
exploring life's spiritual inter-relationships,
sprinkled with a little history and words of wisdom.

Door Number One

Quiet. The search within for answers whose questions evade us, often challenges us beyond our capabilities. When anxiety tugs at us and no matter where we look serenity hides itself from view, we look behind the slightly ajar ingresses of our spirit. Like a long hallway of entrances, access to our true spirit presents itself in many ways. We can choose a window, a gate, a revolving glass door, or any myriad entrances to climb into our thoughts and walk around in our souls. Irrelevant the architecture, the search remains the same. Somehow we think that by choosing a different portal, our discoveries differ. But really, all types of access lead to the same huge library of inner peace. I can choose to test each one – to rattle the window frames and jiggle the door knobs - but I'll just pick door number one and focus my intention on walking into the sanctuary of my soul.
