A New Years message below
for you to ponder...
I wanted to share this with you. On New Years Eve 2013, I went
to a private singles dance party with a girlfriend. She decided to leave at 11:30 pm and I found myself alone at midnight.
I did meet a nice guy, but he also left early. I had a choice to either try to drive home by midnight and spend the New Year with my dog or stay
put. After vacillating too long I decided to embrace the moments ahead. I gave a noise maker to two people
standing around me. I felt a panicked feeling as the end of 2013 was here and the New Year arrived. I didn't want to be in
a dance hall alone, even though there were hundreds of people all around me. The place was packed and when the finals moments arrived to ring in the New Year and say good
by to 2013 I embraced the
woman near me and we wished each other a Happy New Year. I took in the merriment all around me, some people embraced, others kissed, and others stood alone. I didn't
want to start the year
standing alone so I decided to circle the room and hug each person and wish them a Happy New Year. I hugged, young, old, black, white, big, small, everyone I passed by. I was
greeted with warm smiles,
hugs back, a dance or two, light conversation and the warmest feeling of love. Some people stood by lonely and when I embraced
them we were able to share the moment of merriment and not feel so alone. Some were taken aback and others received my hugs
with warm reciprocation and one or two were looking to see if I had an ulterior motive. For the most part I was received with
warm feelings of connection and love. After 25 minutes of this amazing giving/receiving from total strangers, I went to the coat room. A man who was with someone came
over to me and commented, "You really made people feel good tonight and the whole room was so happy." I smiled and handed
him my business card of "The Third Road" and thanked him. I told him he might embrace the book and if not to pass it on to
I got in my car and felt an enormous amount of love in my heart and realized
that Norman Vincent Peale was right when he said, "Change your thoughts and you change your world." And lessons emerged that
I share with you. One is that, I have the power to feel all the love I want, and I can share that with others, and in doing
so, it comes right back to me. The capacity to love is very wide and strong and cannot be stopped by traditional standards
or our own egos. Love comes in all shapes and sizes and is not predicated by romance. It is predicated by our connection to
each other, in whatever way that is, whether it is family, friends, romance, colleagues or total strangers.
Wishing you a New Year filled with much peace, joy and love.

can live by.
I am the love that you can cling to.
I am your assurance. I am your peace. I am with you.
I am there.

A Poem for Survivors
In the landscape of the world there are multicolor facets of individual lives that touch each other
in unexpected ways.
Do I dare reach out to another in an attempt to support, or close my eyes and wander to an
Something beckons me to the call of the forgotten; to those who have no voice or face.
I forge ahead, with deep emotions, abiding feelings, loving thoughts of survival, reaching my hand out to those that have
Will my hope increase their hope, as well as my own?
Who sent this faceless person to me? Is it for my sake or theirs?
Destiny beckons and I

by a cosmic wave of energy that circulates the sky, invisible, yet very much felt.
Then, suddenly as if by chance,
but actually by an organized force, we connect and your pain becomes mine, unable to separate ourselves, since we are one
in the same with our Creator.
We are now dancing in a movement of the cosmic sea, whirling to the waves of emotions,
as we try to touch upon a mutual understanding of trust and survival.
Then the most amazing thing erupts. The unseen
solution emerges, as if from a tiny speck of thought, and we find the one thing that we were both looking for, which by name
