Do you think having a purpose is a real thing, or should a person just do whatever his heart desires?

Personally, I think discovering a mission of service, or purpose that serves the greater good, is a useful guide to living a meaningful life.

It serves as a benchmark for the contributions one is making to humanity. For instance, Read more

Have you had a negative event happen to you that turned out to be very positive down the road?

Several failed relationships. The ending of each was traumatic at the time, regardless of which of us made the decision to end it.

I’ve heard it said that Read more

Why do so many men lack empathy?

Great question, thanks!

Actually, empathy is only one of many traits that men lack, that stems from repressing any emotion except anger.

Western society devalues emotions. So many messages – particularly for men – that emotions are somehow to be denied and ignored. Did you ever hear any of these? Read more

What made you happy today?

My partner and I have a daily ritual of a long, soulful hug upon arising. No words, just feeling the joy and pleasure of being wholly accepted and loved by another beautiful human being for 30–60 seconds.

What physical surroundings give you the strongest feeling of peace?

Nature in all its beauty. A sunset over the ocean, a waterfall, a forest with the sound of birds all around, a full moon accented by deep silence. Grounding myself in the Great Mother by walking barefoot along the beach with the sound of the surf. A big storm with loads of rain, thunder and lightning.

We are a part of nature, not separate.

Namaste!

What makes someone attractive?

Ask a thousand people this question and you’ll get a thousand different answers. Because “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” – in other words, each of us has our own criteria for what constitutes attractiveness.

There’s physical attractiveness, of course. That’s a nice magnet, but it doesn’t get much traction for long term relationships. And some people will just stop at making themselves physically attractive. That’s unfortunate.

Because there are many other more important qualities that have a far greater bearing on relationships.

Personality. Attitude. Amount of personal charisma. Levels of emotional and spiritual maturity. Intelligence. Passion for life. Integrity.

Each of these make someone attractive to me as a partner.

Beauty? Like I said, it’s a great magnet… but…

Namaste!

Why do I have an immense need of male attention?

Because you’re looking to be validated by men as an attractive, sensual woman.

Which means you probably don’t view yourself that way.

Fixing your self-image is the answer.

When you get to know and love who you are, your neediness for validation will disappear.

And, it’s a process – it won’t happen overnight.

But that’s the answer to your “why” question.

Namaste!
