Two weeks ago my husband drove me to hospital, checked me in, and lovingly kissed me goodbye, whispering, “Don’t worry, everything will be fine.”
I am normally a person who is well adjusted and at ease with the world around me, but as time drew near, for the operation, my heart began to shudder; the thought of having a part of my body removed was positively daunting.
I had to remind myself that many women had gone through this operation in the past and came out feeling much better than before.

~Dr. Scott Sticksel
Last week, I had lunch with my colleagues.
One guy from a different department (I’ll call him Dave) joined us at our table. I’ve only interacted with Dave a couple of times before, so I don’t know him very well.
When we all started to eat, Dave began expressively describing the problems he was facing at work.
He then went on to talk about some of his college experiences.
Next, he explained an issue his family was going through and what he was doing to resolve it.
With surprising ease, he transitioned to narrate, in great detail, a near-death experience he’d had five years before.

One bone numbingly cold winter morning in January 2003, my husband Tony and I were carefully making our way to work, which was no easy commute.
At the time we were living in Kiev, the capital city of the Ukraine where winter months are so frigid, it hurts to draw a breath.
We had moved there to take up teaching positions in an international school after having been living in an ashram in India.
Initially we had been excited by the thought of such a dramatic change of scene, but the reality of it was proving to be brutal. (read more…)

“Flow is the natural, effortless unfolding of our lifeThe majority of the books that sit on my shelves are ones that I have read, or deliberately decided not to read after losing interest after a page or two. So I was a little taken aback when I found one sitting smack dab in the middle of various dog-eared novels that I hadn’t read yet—The Power of Flow.

In all likelihood it was a transplant from my parent’s extensive self-help collection, one that must have snuck into one of my boxes. Yet, I hadn’t noticed it until I was—conveniently—experiencing stagnation in many areas of my life.
I’d say this is what “divine timing” is all about.
I spent the next few hours swimming in the pages, recalling all the times in my life when things seemed to fall in to place and doors opened without any physical effort on my part–the times when I was completely and totally “in the flow.” (read more…)
