Miss July

Evita at Evolving Beings has honored me with an interview this month, part of her series profiling a different person every month. The process of answering her questions led me to reflect on my life these past years more deeply than I usually do. I thought I would share the questions with you in case you would like to explore these questions in your own life. And of course, if you would like to share any of your thoughts in the comments, please do!

Here are her questions. Hope you will have some fun and perhaps gain some insight in answering them.

1. What area(s) of your spiritual/emotional life have you decided to change and why? (focus is on past)

2. What strategies have you implemented to change, who inspired you, person or organization, book, etc.? (focus is on present)

3. How have the changes benefitted your overall life, happiness up to this point? (focus is on present versus past)

4. What are the next steps or goals in your life as an evolving being? (focus is on near future)

5. What message do you have for others who are struggling or embarking on a similar journey? (words of wisdom/inspiration)

If you would like to read my interview on her site, please click here.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, a holiday weekend if you are in the US, where we are celebrating the 4th of July. I will be “unplugged” up at my cabin, so if there is a delay in posting your comments, please know that all your comments are very important and I will post them immediately when I get back on Monday. And we will then get started on our focus this month, Step 7-Practice compassion.


  1. Galen: I made my comments on Evolving Beings. I meant them.

  2. JJ--You're a dear. And I mean that!

  3. Wow, those are thought provoking thoughts. I am going to ponder on them. I enjoyed reading your insightful post today.
    Have a great 4th of July!

  4. Dear Galen

    I am just getting back in from being unplugged. Lots to catch up on this week, but I just had to write to you tonight and say a heartfelt thank you once again—not just for sharing your story, a part of yourself, but also for your kind and thoughtful comments and feedback. I appreciate everything you said and let it coat my heart in the love that it was sent with.

    I hope you had a great weekend and wishing you a fantastic new month of July, of summer, of love, health and happiness :)

  8. Galen,
    What a thoughtful interview! I really enjoyed reading it and getting to know you a little more.
    It's been many years since I read A Course in Miracles. I hope to read it again and study it some day and experience some transformational change as well.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. Thanks to all for your kind words.
