The Sacred Is In The Ordinary

The sacred is in the ordinary…it is to be found in one’s daily life, in one’s neighbors, friends, and family, in one’s own backyard…travel may be a flight from confronting the scared–this lesson can be easily lost. To be looking elsewhere for miracles is to me a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous.”
Abraham Maslow

Abraham Harold Maslow was an American psychologist who was best known for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of self-actualization.

BEYOND MOTIVATION by James Tackaberry McCay with Richard Edward Ward helps individuals and groups increase their productivity by recognizing that working with others is an exchange of energy.


Be Practical & Expect Miracles If You Just Take The First Step Forward Every Day

Everything Begins with Just Taking the First Step Forward

Everything begins with just taking the first step forward….every day.

It does not matter how small the first step is.

But it does matter that we do take that first step forward and that we do this every day.

The first step forward today could simply be getting out of bed. Or maybe, you have been thinking about starting a new project, but you haven’t yet written the first word or put the first design to paper.

Just Take the First Step

Just take the first step forward today. Take the first step forward… NOW.

Be Practical & Expect Miracles if you just take the first step forward every day.” – Richard Edward Ward

Fear and Gratitude

As the community fear of Covid-19 swirls around me, and drifts into my consciousness, as well as my unconscious mind, I am finding it a blessing to remember and dwell in gratitude for all of the many blessings in my life, even if it’s not the life that I had planned.

Who Am I? Who Are You?

Who am I?
Who are You?

Richard Edward Ward

Have you ever asked yourself the question “Who am I? Why was I born?”

I know that I have asked those two questions as well as other related questions.

Who am I? Who are You? - Richard Edward Ward

I have also notice over the decades that I also talk about myself in what appears to be the third person.

And I suspect that you probably do the same thing.

  • My body aches today.
  • My mind feels foggy today.
  • My arm is sore.
  • What is going on in my life?
  • I need to make up my mind.

It can go on and on.

So who is the ‘my’ that’s talking about the ‘body’ or the ‘mind’?

It seems to me that “I AM’ and I am not my body, or my mind.

What do you know or think about who you are?
