Religious or Spiritual

By Dolah Saleh | 06 October 2020 |

We are not born with a religion but we do come in as spiritual beings. As many new age and spiritual leaders remind us, “we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” In our willingness to apologize, forgive and let go of attachments to offenses, we demonstrate our courage, strength and self-content or happiness.

Living With Love in Your Life

By Dolah Saleh | 29 September 2020 |

Special love, that which we consider romantic, is not authentic love. The reason is that if we take on another in a romantic partnership, we can easily do so under the guise that they will “complete us.” They will “make us whole.” We need them to behave in such a way as to “prove” their…
