Conventional thinking may lead us to believe that the mind is governing the body, so let’s investigate that first. Begin paying close attention to what…

I hope you are all doing well and remaining healthy. I'm feeling called to share something I wrote that came from my work with with inquiry and the pandemic. What helped me could be of use to someone else looking for peace in this very surreal world we inhabit.

In peace,

[The following words were dictated into my phone while sitting in traffic and later revised while sitting in a café.]


As I was on my way to volunteer at my daughter's school, I ran into a traffic jam on the interstate. Traffic was stop and go. It…
