Being Truly Helpful
Many people have not defined their mission or purpose in life. This often creates much angst, lack of peace, and even health difficulties. It has been said, "Our only purpose...is to be truly helpful."
This statement resonates in my soul. I am fortunate to have found my way into a profession of help and healing. It is very rewarding to be of any type of help to my brothers and sisters.
I believe in the Golden Rules: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." and, "Love your brother as yourself.
I believe that if we all lived by these two simple rules, our world would be one of peace and harmony. I believe that the greatest barriers to following these rules are our own personal lack of love for ourselves and lack of self-esteem. These issues need to be healed in all of us.
I am strong proponent of the principles set down in A Course in Miracles. I have had several opportunities to experience this intensive on personal growth and spiritual transformation from both a student and facilitator perspective. I have seen it literally work MIRACLES in both my life and in the lives of many patients and friends.
