As I awoke this morning, I felt what I now understand is Island Fever. I came to this Island in 2013 and I have never felt it, because I have always been driven by my passion for the Science of Mind and Center for Spiritual Living Kauai. It was my 24/7 life. I knew I […]Read more "Surrender the Cause"
I have in deep grief for the past few month, as it seems that every Sunday I have had to stand in front of our congregation and find some way to explain what is going on in the world, to offer comfort, to reveal truth aback the rubble of despair.
