Kita’s Gentle Message: And There’s the Waiting, Too (Saturday, December 3, 2016)

Every quest, objective and goal is filled with excitement, personal passion, anticipation, careful planning, hard work, probably some fear, and uninvited criticism but it must be admitted there is heaps of waiting on this journey of yours, too. The waiting is deceptive as thoughts of “I’ve probably made a mistake” or “I’ve bitten off more than I can chew” arise causing you to think you’re on the wrong path. Waiting is part of it. How else can you develop the necessary patience,…

Kita’s Gentle Message: You Don’t Have To (Saturday, November 26, 2016)

You don’t have to follow the crowd, please your parents, apologize for being shy, pick up the slack, go on a diet, see the must-see movie, drive a car, get the latest iPhone, compare notes, bring coffee, put on an addition, talk about the election, agree with your boss, eat lunch at your desk, carry your son’s hockey equipment, buy another flat-screen TV, use Botox, stay up late,…if you don’t want to. Ask your soul first what it wants of you and follow that path…

Kita’s Gentle Message: The Incomplete Allows for Perfection (Saturday, November 19, 2016)

Recently I’ve come to know the Enso Circle – a circle that can be drawn either closed or not closed. The idea of the circle not being closed allows for further movement and development until completion or perfection is reached.  The same can be said of us. You are in movement and development until you are complete and perfect. This potential for perfection is in you now. I find this thought remarkably encouraging and delightful: you are everything you can be. Your…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Your Purpose is Ever Constant (Saturday, November 12, 2016)

A great sense of change is no doubt upon us as we awaken to the fact that nothing will ever be the same again. Change is always a challenge but a change that necessitates a paradigm shift into the unknown is even more daunting. The reassurance here is the fact that your purpose for being in this life has not changed or altered in any way. What you are here for today is exactly what you were here for the day you were born. Divine design is ever constant though…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Gentle, Gentle, Gentle (Saturday, November 5, 2016)

I’m sure you’re not surprised that the word “gentle” means  a lot to me – more so than ever before especially in the go, go, go everyday life we are experiencing.  Increasing distractions seeped in noise and frenetic activity surround us like a sound monster that’s taking great delight in making us feel edgy, scattered and irritable.  Imagine what it must be like for little ones taking this in – an ear assault that shows no mercy.  I ask you to go “gentle into that…

When you prayed about that problem, you gave it to Me, and then something happened to cause you to dwell on it again. Now, you cannot seem to get the problem off your mind, and the peace you received has slowly faded away. You…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Expect the Unexpected (Saturday, October 29, 2016)

Though I live in eastern Canada where the cold weather is famously celebrated and criticized for its fall arrival and lingering ways until springtime, it was still a surprise to see a snowfall days before Halloween. Though the white stuff was gone by next day, its unexpected appearance served to imbalance the norm. And I draw an analogy from this weather episode, wondering how centred, how strong, how principled I am in the face of the unexpected and sudden life…

Kita’s Gentle Message: What’s Wrong with this Picture? (Saturday, October 22, 2016)

Social agencies being closed for lack of funds; incarcerated folks with mental issues, children diagnosed with diabetes, stress, obesity, trauma; job cuts citing efficiency over community well-being; rising food prices despite a glut on the market; banks celebrating billion dollar profits while families face debt; little difference between truth and lies; preoccupation with consuming more while the soul starves. This picture is so unbalanced that it will topple.…

Toys What Are Toys The Meaning of Toys

Was starting to read a new book called "Toys" by James Patterson. So in the front they give a definition of the word toy. Toy: A material object for children or others to play with; a plaything; also something contrived for amusement rather than for practical use.

Well I thought about how it is use toward relationships how people are call ' joy toys or love toys' for someone's fun and meaning nothing to them. So I wanted to change that meaning and make a toy something…

Take A Knee

Growing up I hated the 49er's  & I am still not a fan of them now. But as a kid they own the Cowboys & that made me sick. Yet one thing you had for a team with class & great talent was respect. When Colin Kaepernick did that sit down then spoke out about social injustice a lot of people loss their mind  and said how could he too many good people died for this country. That went to show you how many people don't listen. He was protest the things that the people fight for and…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Do the Little Things Well (Saturday, October 15, 2016)

It’s the small favours that family and friends ask of you that add up to how you are as a person.  The one-off big things whether a home crisis or health calamity have us whipped up in no time to respond prudently, effectively, even courageously. The incidental sometimes leaves us shrugging our shoulders, wishing it would go away, irritated, calling it a nuisance – an unnecessary interruption in our important lives… Yet these small interruptions are exactly what…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Engage! (Saturday, October 8, 2016)

You’ve spent a long time completing the workshops, examining the issues, studying the course, practising the routine, rehearsing the song, memorizing the words, meditating in your sanctuary… Now it’s time to engage with the world where your goodness can make a difference. Like the mother bird that pushes her babies out of the nest to fly – because she knows they can, I encourage you to take a deep breath, take the plunge, and engage – because you…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Take the Leap into the Unknown (Saturday, October 1, 2016)

It’s something new that you’ve never done before or perhaps something that you haven’t done for a long while. More daunting – there’s a deadline to completing this activity, task, chore, assignment, duty, objective, desire that unnerves you.  You can feel the butterflies in your stomach as you begin, knowing that it’s now or never. Your mind has all the “what if’s” while your heart urges on with “you can do it”. And which voice will you listen to? I don’t even have…

Kita’s Gentle Message: See Others as More Than… (Saturday, September 24, 2016)

See others as more than a woman, a wife, a partner, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, an employee for in splintering who they are, you risk narrowing their life to that of a category missing the rich complexity of all they truly are.  If “ex-con” were added to that list, would that shift your perspective of them to the point of exclusion? Your mind likes things nice and tidy: categories are so appealingly efficient yet your soul may cry out, “Unfair, unfair! Do you not…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Think of Yourself as an Orchestra (Saturday, September 17, 2016)

While I was listening to contemporary spiritual teacher Thomas Huebl, he talked about the idea of being an orchestra, and of bringing together all your separate parts: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic. You go to the gym to work out; you take your night course on Mondays; you try to understand that argument with your partner; you commune with Spirit on your daily walk, and you breathe deeply on work breaks to regain your energy.  What if you took…
