Happy Thanksgiving and The Story of Life Rights

Namaste and Happy Thanksgiving, 

In the United States we set aside the last Thursday in November as a special day of Thanksgiving. This day is a wonderful time to reflect on those people and events we are especially grateful for during the past year. We especially acknowledge those that have had  very meaningful positive influence on our lives.

This year I am very grateful for many, many people and events.  I am grateful for you being with me here on this site. A year ago I am not sure I even knew what a blog was and now I have one. How cool is that?  In fact this blog is one of the reasons I was identified and asked to be a speaker on the Ocean of Gratitude Cruise in 2009 …another part of my ever expanding gratitude list. 

I am especially proud and grateful for the progress made this year on the Life Rights initiative.  We have several sites including The Right To Be You where we showcase the book I published earlier this year and Life Rights which is the site designed to assist us in expanding the consciousness of freedom and peace.

Recently I was Interviewed by Meg Bertini, owner of Divine Rights Publishing.  I like this particular video as is a very good summary of The Life Rights story.  I hope you enjoy this video which is published at  and also posted here for your convenience. You will notice it is a YouTube video.  Speaking of YouTube…well that’s another story and yes I am grateful…mostly 🙂 

I wish this to be a very special Thanksgiving day for you.  If you are traveling or receiving guests, I pray for safe travel, peace and harmony.  Please take the time to give someone a special message of thanks. Give someone a hug.  In Unity we believe in Oneness…we are all connected.  This then means what you do for another you are actually doing for yourself.   Send out what is good and notice how happier you become.

May God Bless You,

From the Blog



“The God within me meets and recognizes the God within you” is the basic meaning of the word namaste. Though we all seek different paths and adapt to our own unique beliefs, we are all made of the same energy and essence of God. Our life force as humans is the same. We have discovered…

Spiritual Communion

Spiritual Communion

Prayer generally implies having spiritual communion with God or an object of worship, through supplication, thanksgiving, adoration, or confession. Often the undertone of prayer is pleading, bargaining and making amends with God. In Unity and New Thought, prayer is an affirmative declaration of things, events and circumstances which we are accepting as truth. In other…

The Not So Secret Secret

Sometimes it seems we have too many people who truly need to help themselves before they can fully help others. Some people attempt to help others too soon on their own healing journeys. We all may know a few of these folks, who get a business card and a website and make great claims before…

Infinite Resources

Imagine what the world would be if everyone realized there is one source in the universe, the presence and power of their Creator. We often confuse our limited resources with our source of fulfillment. We may tend to think of our jobs as our source, our family inheritances as our source, or the love we…
