How are you serving the world and contributing your gifts?

I think we best serve the world by simply trying to be more loving, more positive, more forgiving in any moment. Love makes us conduits for miracles and receptive to miracles. From that, all else follows.

What does living wholly mean to you?

Living Wholly means “holy.” When I remember I’m a spiritual being, a creation of God, here on the earth to do God’s Will, i.e. channel Love, then I’m in my whole mind. Outside that space, we’re neurotic, psychically dismembered, scattered.

What are your top 3 tips for living a healthy, fulfilling life?

1) Meditate and pray.

2)  forgive and have mercy.

3) exercise, eat and sleep well.


What is your self-care practice?
All of the above.

What is your super-natural gift?

There are no supernatural gifts. All gifts are natural. And all of us have an infinite supply. No one is special and everyone is special.


Who inspires you?
Everyone inspires me, when I take the time to listen to their story. 

What music are you currently listening to?

Barbara Streisand has a beautiful DC of duets that I keep listening to.

What is your present state of mind?
Good. Peaceful. Happy.

What are you reading right now?                                      

I just read a wonderful novel called “Broken for You” by Stephanie Kallos that I highly recommend. Also, “The Book of Strange New Things” by Michel Faber is a masterpiece. I’m looking around for my next good read.

What has been your most memorable revelation while traveling?
That people are the same everywhere. And how good and noble they are.

What are your “must haves” while traveling?

An open, flexible, curious attitude.
