Peace to you





My name is Bob Payne.  I created this site to pass along some of my thoughts.

Like you, I've found that life is full of ups and downs and it often doesn't exactly make sense.  I have explored and looked at life through different religious traditions.  In a nutshell, I have come to recognize that we make life, religion and spirituality much harder than it needs to be.  So, I have lightened-up.  In doing so, I find myself more aware of the reality of the present moment and the depth of everyday interactions.  There is a beauty, a lightness, and a playfulness that we often miss.

So, kick your shoes off, relax, and slow down a bit.  Ponder an inspirational saying or two.  Read a blog.  Take your time.   You are welcome here.

If you are feeling burdened, I hope this site offers you some respite.  

Blogs and sayings can be reached from the links at the top of the page.  You can subscribe by using the box below.

All the best to you!
