Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.
This week we reflect on our actions, our behavior. Author Cara Bradley in Awake, Fully Alive and On Purpose shares:
"What you do every day matters. Your routines and habits set you in motion or bring you to a halt. They help you feel great or make you feel lousy. What you do on a daily basis has a cumulative effect on your life and has carried you to this very moment."
Thus this week we examine our behavior and its consequences. Sarah Varcas provides her overview of the coming month and describes us all as Spiritual Warriors with Blankets to Darn reminding us that there are things we need to do, to repair, to process, due to previous actions, or perhaps lack of action. Some of those things are in the "outside world" but many, if not most, are in our own selves and our own way of being.
And while we are reflecting on our actions, the article "I Multitask, but I Still Can’t Finish Everything!" sheds light on why we may not be making the progress we have envisioned for ourselves. Regular contributor Alan Cohen provides guidelines in "Life 101: How to Produce a Classic Scene", as he reminds us that "greatness is built - not overnight or in a flash, but through the steady development of skill, consciousness, and heart."
And Barry Vissell intimately opens his heart to us with his article, To Really Trust a Woman... And perhaps we will discover that trusting others helps us learn to trust ourselves.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Last month was fairly intense and may have left us feeling somewhat battle worn! Thankfully the second half of April provides ample opportunity to refresh and regroup, offering inner space in which to consider where we go from here.

Becoming vulnerable with a woman teaches you all about trust. I often hear, “I’ll be more vulnerable with her when I trust her more.” This attitude doesn’t work. Your vulnerability opens the door to trust, and trust opens the door to love.

I would love to be able to tell you that multitasking will save the day, but it will actually do the opposite. There are a few instances when it can help (I’ll give examples shortly), but the majority of the time, multitasking hurts us. Just read the research on it.

It is also highly beneficial to reread the past week's astrological journal as it gives a hindsight view of the events that took place and may provide many "ah-ha" insights.
The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.
The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (including Meditation), Intuition & Awareness (including astrology), and Happiness & Success.
"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics are very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
