Divine Offering

Love always begins with us and moves outwards in healthy and positive ways.

Reflections on Life Thus Far

divine offering .. BY DUIRWAIGH STUDIOS “There is no one in the universe more dear to us than ourselves. The mind may travel in a thousand directions, but it will find no one else more beloved. The moment you see how important it is to love yourself, you will stop making others suffer.” Thich Nhat Hanh

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. Excellent.

    May I impart a few mindfulness connections here.

    I think it was Buddha who said if you can not find happiness, peace of mind here how will you find it anywhere in the world.

    The Buddhist has precepts and one is ” do no harm”

    Easy till you look in the mirror. Sometimes doing no harm. Places us in awkward positions, a place where we need to stand up and act or speak or defend us or another.

    Do no harm is not following others.

    Another axiom.

    If you find awake ending, happiness at the top of the mountain, you brought it with you.

    All of this is absent as much ego and desire as possible

  2. Loving oneself is, to me, honoring the soul within while being aware that there are areas for improvement in the human being.
