Tempering Steel

Tempering Steel

The second heating process reduces the hardness a little but toughens the steel. It also significantly reduces brittleness of the steel so that it does not break easily. Tempering: Taking something very hard and treating it with heat but just the right amount of heat in order to make it stronger or more durable. Tempering in itself brings in a type of fluidity and allowance for endurance that otherwise is not attainable with brittle hardness. I have realized recently that all things, even our physical hardships arise in order to bring heightened awareness to the surface. The “state,” the...

Cetacean Paradise

The sturdy catamaran named Dolphin Quest heaved forward kissing the waves as it rocked up and down in the delicious Bahamian sunshine. Glancing down my eyes laughed at the sight of legs and feet splashing the ocean as the boat sank into the troughs of the waves. Those very same eyes watching with childlike anticipation for one of our new friends to come charging forward from beneath the sailboat tempting and teasing us with delight like the young one with the agile body darting back and forth or the larger male with the broken fin turning his head so he could make eye contact. I am sure they...

Vulnerability

Sometimes it is challenging to know when a relationship is healthy and when it has crossed that line into the unhealthy stage. The element of trust is a sacred bond, isn’t it? I know for me, I often shy away from initiating such a bond.  Because when I do move forward and make the commitment to open my heart, I know that I have made myself vulnerable. Vulnerability. Now there’s a word of monumental proportions. Some might say it’s very meaning is steeped in weakness but I have learned, to the contrary, that to allow vulnerability is one of the bravest acts anyone can undertake. It is a...

Lost in the Magical Moment

There really are no words for the joy that I feel when I listen to the birds. What miraculous creatures they are. Yesterday I was off on an Audobon trail and decided to indulge myself on one of those paths. You know “those paths,” the ones that meander off into Neverland and as you wander, you completely lose yourself. This particular path was magical indeed for not only did I happen upon a delightful vernal pool that precipitated an amphibian choral display of grand proportions but somewhere hidden among the oaks, maples, birches and pines was this angelic sound that I had never heard...

The Magic of Group Manifesting

The weeks following the Boston bombing were filled with a myriad of mixed emotions. I know because we had a Group Manifesting for the Earth- Peace and Diplomacy class just 9 days after the attack. The class was very intense with lots of emotions whirling around. I remember thinking, “My goodness, there is a lot of energy moving around here tonight!” It was challenging that night to get to the enchanting childlike place that stirs the quantum field to deliver MAGIC into our 3D reality. We are complex beings aren’t we? It is not always easy to understand our feelings. And our feelings can...

April Newsletter – Argo

Yesterday I watched the movie Argo. I found myself filled with all kinds of emotions when the movie was finished. Having been a leader of a local Amnesty International Group I know the feeling of fear and anguish that rises up when I become aware of situations where humans violently react to one another. Once again, those same feelings along with tremendous guilt rose up within me. I tried to squash the feelings by filling my time with family activities only to be ambushed by my dreams last night. I awoke with fear and guilt filling my body. So, I did what I have learned to do when such...
