Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.

This week we look at our unity with all that is, and how that affects our day-to-day experience in the choices that we make. Neale Donald Walsch tells us that The Moment of Choice is Here -- It Is Time To Change Course while M.J. Ryan reminds us that The Happiness We Think Elusive Is Right Under Our Noses.

Regina Cates questions Your Life, Your Legacy, Your Choice: Living In Ways You Would Be Pleased To Remember. She focuses more on our legacy at the end of each day, not only at the end of our life. Kimberly Burnhan asks: Are You Part of My Tribe? while Ervin Laszlo presents 16 precepts of Evolved 
Planetary Consciousness.

We also look at Unlearning Social Biases, Tomorrow's Battery TechnologiesWhy We Blow Up When We Argue About Politics, and many more topics (see additional articles below)

Your Life, Your Legacy, Your Choice: Living In Ways You Would Be Pleased To Remember

Your Life, Your Legacy, Your Choice: Living In Ways You Would Be Pleased To RememberWritten by Regina Cates.

Granny was satisfied with life. Despite adversity, she did not dwell on or run from the disappointments of life; she courageously faced hardship by grieving, accepting, forgiving, and moving on. She made mistakes. But instead of living with regret, she made the effort to make a better choice the next time she faced a similar situation.

The Happiness We Think Elusive Is Right Under Our Noses

The Happiness We Think Elusive Is Right Under Our NosesWritten by M.J. Ryan.

To experience happiness in our daily lives does not mean hiding our heads in the sand. It’s not about feeling absolutely wonderful all the livelong day. We’re meant to feel bad as well as good—the part of our brains that experiences fear, worry, sorrow, and anger is there to protect us from danger and spur us into action.

The Moment of Choice is Here -- It Is Time To Change Course

The Moment of Choice is Here -- It Is Time To Change CourseWritten by Neale Donald Walsch.

The time has come to make a decision. Humanity as a collec­tive is nearing the end of its ability to go on the way it has been. That isn’t meant to be a doomsday warning, just a word to the wise. We have to change course here, and the fastest way we can do it is to change our ideas about God.

an Evolved 
Planetary Consciousness?

What is The Nature of 
an Evolved 
Planetary Consciousness?Written by Ervin Laszlo.

My family and my community are just as much “me” as the organs of my body. My body and mind, my family and my community, are interacting and interpenetrating—variously prevalent elements in the network of relations that encompasses all things in nature and the human world.
