You just awake... your eyes are still shut

As he stood and looked silently but intently into the mirror
He soon began to see another image arise in his soul..An

hoped would never break..Allowing this inner beast to unfold..
For he knew everyday..When he awakened to begin his day..
The first place he would need to check out..Would be where
this inner beast of his..Would… Continue

DOVES OF PEACE.
One of the most recognised symbols of peace is the dove.
Its origins are from the story of Noah and the Ark.
When the rains that flooded the earth stopped pouring
down, Noah sent out various birds to see if they would
bring back any sign of land to his boat.
He was anxious to begin life again on dry pasturage.
One dove eventually returned carrying an olive branch.

I tossed out an idea: Let's all write a blog post about peace. And while we're at it, let's make some noise.… Continue

Unfortunately, as stress accumulates our own health and fitness goals are often sidelined. We again place what we desire and want for ourselves back on the shelf, because our lives become over stimulated with other obligations. Beating stress is a difficult task, but we have the power and control to survive the holidays and the end of the year frenzy by making just a few changes in our own habits and ways of thinking.
Stress is defined as anything that stimulates you and increases… Continue
I have been watching the articles and the comments fly about the fact that President Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize. There are many people who are skeptical about it and think he was awarded it undeservedly so. What I think many of the critics don’t understand is that this is actually one of the trademarks of the Nobel Peace Prize. That is, if you look over the Nobel Peace Prize and who it has been awarded to – it has a… Continue
This mosque is hard to be noticed since it is located next to one of the greatest and most influential mosques of Egypt, the Azhar Mosque. However, paying attention to its design, the Mosque of Abu El Dahab is a unique model of the Ottoman architecture. Moreover, the builder of the mosque has a rather exciting story.
The builder of the mosque is the Amir… Continue

Well it's been an exciting year of travelling around the world, helping Fierce Light shine. The responses have been so tremendous, and moving. Every audience is different, but again and again people are deeply moved by the film. Last weekend I was in Charleston, at the Sophia Institute. On Friday night the packed screening at the American Theater offered up a standing ovation. The next day, the SHINE YOUR FIERCE LIGHT workshop was charged with energy and compassion. The insitute has been host… Continue
