Today is my special day. I joyfully celebrate my birthday
and being another year wiser. I treat myself to self-nurturing
as I celebrate my innate worth and beauty.

Greetings from the Editor:

Sixty Isnít What It Used to Be

Celebrate with me. I am 60 years young on Sept 7. I have always loved my birthday and continue to feel excited each year on my special day. When viewing old photos of my grandparents at this age, I feel very lucky to be living in this day and time. I feel young compared to how they looked at my age.

Life was difficult for them and I honor each for all they went through and the times in which they grew up (all four of my grandparents were hardworking immigrants who went through both world wars and the Great Depression). They each offered new hope for a better life for their children and grandchildren, which has come true. I am grateful for the fullness and abundance of my life today and each day as I age gracefully.

Fortunate Blessings,




 Guidelines for Resolving Conflict & Fighting Fairly

By Suzanne E. Harrill

Who among us doesnít need a reminder here and there on how to live peacefully in our families, and specifically in our primary love relationships? I know my weak points when it comes to good communication -- I donít listen well when my partner is expressing something I donít want to hear, I am good at finishing sentences, and have been known to interrupt.

Take war. Please! Especially that most oxymoronic one, the holy war in the Holy Land. Holy cow-pie, that's wholly insane.

I guess someone must have modified the Ten Commandments while we weren't looking: "Thou shalt not kill, except in extremely large groups."I've said it before, but maybe it bears repeating....

A Summary of Buddha's Teaching

From Deepak Chopraís Latest Book,
Buddha, A Story of Enlightenment

Last Spring, my husband and I heard Deepak Chopra speak in person. The experience was very powerful, enlightening. If ever you get the chance, go hear him speak. I bought his latest book, Buddha, A Story of Enlightenment. It is novel based on fact of a man who was born Prince Siddhartha Suddhodana, in the Kingdom of Sakya, 563 BCE.

Buddha means "someone who is awake." Deepak Chopra captures the human side of this man. We learn of his journey of leaving behind his royal life to become a monk and eventually achieve enlightenment, to become The Buddha.

In the last chapter, The Art of Non-Doing, A Practical Guide to Buddhism, Deepak gives the reader some very simple and practical answers to some difficult questions.
