Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week we take a look at the world's duality/unity dichotomy (A Foot In Each World: Duality and Unity) and how we deal with it (Reality Checklist for Psychological Maturity). And then there's how we deal with the world inside of us (Using Mindfulness to Break Bad Habits).
Much of our behavior stems from old childhood wounds (Can Our Deepest Wounds and Core Beliefs Feel Threatened by Meditation?) and it affects all aspects of our personal as well as our business life (It’s Not About The Website). Yet we need to remind ourselves that we choose how to deal with the outside world and that we can do so with humor and grace (The Angel in the Tollbooth and the Art of Situational Comedy).
And we have numerous additional articles on all aspects of life... both inner and outer. Scroll down below for the links to all of this week's new articles.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Identifying these wounds, our patterns of hurt and how we defend ourselves, is valuable. Knowing what we do when we feel threatened, we can begin to recognize whether we unconsciously perceive our meditation as a threat and defended ourselves against it with a resistance that prevents us from doing it.

The business and relationship situations in your life do not have a life or reality of their own. They are reflections of your psyche, the images you hold about yourself projected onto the screen of the world. As James Allen stated, “We think in secret and it comes to pass. Environment is our looking glass.”

Something happened the other day that highlighted why we do what we do, and why I love helping ordinary people find the extraordinary humor and playfulness in every day life. We've been traveling around the northeast for the past three weeks and one thing the northeast has is -- tolls. Now I can imagine that being a toll-taker takes its toll. Same old same old...

The Duality/Scarcity Global Economy has entered its final death throes at the same time as the Unity/Prosperity Global Economy begins its labor pangs. The waters have broken. Adjustments are being made and tweaks in the consciousness to alleviate the speed with which the switch-over will happen.

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.
We add articles to the website daily. Rather than wait for the newsletter, you can visit each section according to your interests throughout the week. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".
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.
