Freedom From Mental Chatter, Being Surrounded With Love.......... 7/10/18

      Hello, everyone.

      I'm breaking my silence.

      Constant person-al growth takes us to delightful places beyond our imagina-tion.  That's been me, making me happy.  Vistas into how I can celebrate life deeper than ever dreamed unfolded the past five months, resulting from diligent study (3-4 hours a day) and application, prompting lots of writing.  I want to share it here, but not now.  I'm

Why We Remain Miserable............ 2/4/18

        I am at so many crossroads.

     All of them are magnificently good.  Good afternoon, visitors to my inn. I wish you all the best.

     The best can only happen when we are present.  This is pos-sible when we are free of mind chatter and the need to please others.

The Strength and Authenticity We Have When We Move Beyond Codependency........................... 1/31/18

      Innkeeper's Note:  I am reposting the following. It is worth another read.  Let me know what you think.

     I'm thankful for peace of mind.  It happens when relating   with healthy people.  Calmness and sanity is ours when avoiding those who are unsafe.

     I was reminded of this second point at a restaurant. I witnessed a toxic parent.  He was in his thir-ties.

     He raised the hackles on the back of my neck.  His comments made my heart pound, like it hasn't, in years. Dark emotions from long ago revisited me, awakening the little Pablo within.

My Favorite Christmas Story 12/25/17

     Merry Christmas.  That each guest of this inn had a lovely day, is my wish.  I did.

     What is Christmas?  Nope, it is not about gifts.  It is about one Gift, Christ.  This holiday is about God's incarnation, becoming a man.  This day celebrates His arrival.  He dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.  (John 1:14) I know for many this is an outdated concept.

      What Christmas gift can I offer?  How about
