I’m a citizen of the great ole U.S. of A. which means that during this time of year, “we” celebrate Thanksgiving. At this time, most of us gather with family and friends to give thanks for the country that we are blessed to live within.

I can be a successful bridge; whether between two people, two groups or two ideologies. What I have realized is that: First I have to bridge the opposing viewpoints in my own brain and heart; then I can begin helping to make bridges between other entities.

The Universe flirts with me and it is most especially evident when I am caught in a sequence of “life lessons” that it (i.e. God, Spirit, Good Orderly Direction or something bigger than me) wants to make sure that I “get”. This weekend, for example, I felt that I was made up of many elbows that kept getting hit right on the “funny bone” because when I was aware of the unfolding of a “life lesson” it simultaneously hurt and was humorous.

“Wholeheartedness is a precious gift, but no one can actually give it to you. You have to find the path that has heart and then walk it impeccably.” – Pema Chodron
If you’re like me, you probably believe that you’re living your life as wholeheartedly as you can. I get up every morning and eat breakfast, feed and play with my animals, talk with people on the phone, and go for a run. After all that, I sit down at my desk and look over my calendar for the day as my emails boot up. Usually I take the weekends off, but this Sunday I knew that I needed to do a heavy last minute push. I wanted to invite people to attend a retreat that I’m offering next weekend; it’s is not filling up quickly. I’ve noticed that when my work is going well—I’m busy, the phones are ringing, the bells are singing—I can easily throw myself wholeheartedly into my business. However, when my work is going slow—no one is returning my correspondence, my phone is quiet and my emails are still— I tend to be easily distracted; I pick and choose where and when I will throw myself in wholeheartedly.
