“We are One Single Tribe”—T’Challa, Blank Panther (Chadwick Boseman)

Out of some combination of curiosity and civic duty, I tuned in to segments of the DNC and the RNC conventions. I must say both events brought up some real concerns about humanity’s level of attention to the wake-up calls alerting us to upgrade how we operate—or suffer the consequences. The upgrade, in my estimation, would include taking personal responsibility that rejects projection, blame, and any lies that might falsely fortify the goal of looking good, or getting ahead—whether personally or on a public platform. Sadly, as we all know too well, the political landscape does not reinforce the upgrade model. Instead,

“Let this be your heart’s deepest yearning; to become all of those things which you are tempted to seek from another. And in your becoming, you will get that there is nothing to get.”—Happily  Ever After…Right Now. —Luann Robinson Hull, second edition to be published August 18, 2020 These are powerful and unprecedented times–perhaps times that are ripe for healing our human wounds–those raw places in our hearts and souls that can provoke feelings of separation and strong positions on this or that. Such a propensity can alienate us even further from those with whom we disagree, while standing firm

“The Second Mountain” by David Brooks

David Brooks, author of The Second Mountain, is a journalist after my own heart. In his latest, extraordinary book, Brooks weaves his own responses to life’s unexpected experiences together with those of scientists and philosophers. Brooks offers meaningful insights about how he rebounded after toppling off the first mountain of life by choosing service to others over self. After reaching the pinnacle of what may have appeared to be “success” on that first mountain of life, you might be thrown some kind of a curve ball—a death, divorce, job termination—or something else. Brooks believes it is at that point that

On Dragonflies, Frogs, and Slugs

“How do you free yourself? In the deepest sense, you free yourself by finding yourself.” –Michael Alan Singer, The Untethered Soul During this interesting time of sequestering over the last few months, I’ve found that among the many challenges have been great gifts. One of those is having had the unusual privilege of spending time with my four-year-old granddaughter, whose unusual kindness and compassion I find to be remarkable. Among her many ways of demonstrating those qualities is with her tenderness toward creatures which most would find disgusting—namely frogs, slugs, and worms. She’s spent hours being entertained by them (even

Consciousness and the Red Cardinal: Learning to Love the Questions

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you…” – The Gospel of Thomas In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a character who was so focused on his good looks and accomplishments that he was incapable of loving another, which eventually caused his demise. Over the years, he’d had his share of women all of whom had eventually seen thru his external disguise. Nonetheless, there was one steadfast admirer who deeply loved him, and despite all

Science and Creationism

Several weeks ago, someone asked me if I’d ever studied atheism.  Over my 25 years of researching human consciousness, science and spiritual growth, I had to say the topic hadn’t crossed my radar.  Apart from having read The Origin, where Dan Brown pits creationism against science, which was interesting (though not convincing), I’ve never had the slightest inclination to explore the subject. In accepting the challenge, I was astonished at the plethora of links that came up to explore: atheism vs deism, atheism vs Catholicism, atheism vs nihilism, atheism vs humanism—the list continues. After reading these edicts until I was cross-eyed, I

The Collapse of Patriarchy

This is a pivotal time in history as women’s voices are collectively fortified and encouraged. Scores of us are coming out across all industries and walks-of-life to tell our stories, revealing what happened to us regarding sexual harassment, abuse, or about how we mold ourselves to meet the expectations of men with whom we live or work–fearing the consequences if we didn’t acquiesce to an implied inferiority. Women now, at this “pivotal time,” have an opportunity to rise up and transcend the bullies—either those in our external world or the voices in our hearts and souls, whispering echoes of unworthiness.

Angel Visitations and the Evolution of Human Consciousness

Twenty years ago, I started writing Happily Ever After…Right Now …during a transformational period in my life, a pivotal point that I describe as follows within the book: “This is a cosmic love story viewed through the magical mirror of our souls …it is just about listening and remembering, one minute, one person, one partnership at a time. This is no ordinary tale—for its purpose is to provide a new foundation for living your life from a place of freedom and peace …comfortable with uncertainty as you break through the generational spells that have kept you endlessly bound in fear

A Human Upgrade

Two summers ago, I went on a hiking tour in the northwest corner of England led by distinguished poet, David Whyte. Due to the unusually warm season, most of our excursions were in the evenings, when we took advantage of the long hours of sunlight at that latitude. Mornings were spent in dialogue and contemplation inspired by David’s wise words, often channeled through the poetry for which he has become so well-known. Spending time negotiating nature late in the day as we moved into night, provided an opportunity to contemplate that morning’s offerings and expand ourselves beyond the limits of
