Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
Relationship! We all are involved in one, even if it's only a relationship with our own self. How we deal with that relationship, as well as all others, creates a basis for our life experience. It's not always smooth sailing. This week we look at the essence behind our connection with our own self, our Self (with a capital S), and with others.
We start with our connection with Life Itself in "Claim Your Inheritance and Let Life Love You" by Alan Cohen. Hugh Prather encourages us to "Let Go of Inner Conflict and Relationship Baggage". Barry Vissell writes about "The 3 Parts of Relationship Commitment" and the commitment referred to is not only for our intimate relationship but also for our commitment to Self and to Spirit.
Feeling overwhelmed by everything and everyone in your life? Read "How to Live Your Well Life Plan with Greater Efficiency" and also "Searching for the Key to Happiness?". Yet the root of our problems and the solution to them lies in "Removing The One Degree Of Separation From Love". Finding the oneness within ourselves and also between our being and everyone around us can lead to creative solutions and new pathways. Seeing through the eyes of Love (with a capital L) changes everything.
We also bring you a variety of articles on topics such as: "How Mindfulness Can Help The Shift Towards A More Sustainable Society"; "What Happens When You Become Overheated"; "How Brands Turn Customers Into Devoted Followers"; ;'Why It's Important To Understand Social Media's Dark History;" "How To Ask For A Pay Rise;" "How Electric Cars Can Power Buildings From The Parking Lot"; and many more.
Scroll down below for the short intros and links to this week's 28 new articles and this week's astrological journal.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Written by Alan Cohen
The spiritual teacher Bashar defines abundance as “the ability to do what you need to do when you need to do it.” This definition says nothing about a particular amount of money in your bank account or a specified way your support should come. There are an infinite number of ways you can be taken care of. Money is just one of them.

It is quite sad to see how many relationship crises today are not about the relationship; they are about thoughts of old relationships. These couples don’t have a chance. They can’t even experience the potential of the new relationship because they aren’t in it.

What does it mean to be fully committed in a monogamous relationship? The traditional meaning has to do with focusing your romantic energies only upon your partner.
