Do You Have to Meditate to Be Spiritual?

Dear Meli, This may be a silly question, but do you really need to meditate if you’re on a spiritual path? I ask because I really hate to meditate. I have a really hard time sitting still and quieting my mind. I’m a runner and that seems to be my preferred form of meditation. But […]

Should You Always Tell the Truth?

Dear Meli, I have a friend that wants to be a singer. She’s sure that she’s going to be a big star. She’s in her early forties and has been singing for a long time, but her career has never taken off. At all. And here’s the thing: she’s not really a great singer. Recently […]

How Can You Find Fulfilling Work?

Dear Meli, I hate my job. Like, really really really hate my job. But I can’t quit. I need to support my family and right now there’s nothing else out there in my field. In spiritual circles, they say “Do what you love and the money will follow.” Well, the money is already here, but […]
