August 30th, 2015

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.

The month of August draws to a close, and September is upon us. Fall is the time of harvest, and we also are "harvesting" the consequences of our choices and our actions.The "waves" we have created will be returning to the shores of our consciousness (and our lives) to be addressed.

Alan Cohen asks us: What Motivates Your Choice of the World You Prefer? while Joyce Vissell reminds us that Remembering To Say Thank You Is More Important Than You Think. Richard Bach reflects on Education and Dr. Bernie Siegel encourages us to pick up A Box of Crayons. All this and more is part of the greater picture of our "harvest".

Written by Alan Cohen.

Written by Joyce Vissell.

Remembering To Say Thank YouYou might think that people know you are grateful, so you don’t have to share it. But remember that expressing your gratitude is a special gift for you as well. I feel very far from perfect in remembering to say thank you, and yet it has become something that is very important to me...

When School Kills (And It Does)...Where’s Education?

Written by Richard Bach.

Sensing, Understanding, and Using the Flow of Energy

Written by Karen Harrison.

Sensing, Understanding, and Using the Flow of EnergyEnergy and its flow is being unconsciously experienced by everyone, all of the time. We are all surrounded and impacted by the action and movement of energy twenty-four hours a day.
