InnerSelf Newsletter: March 25th, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Things are not always as they seem... this can be both good news and bad news... So even if you feel like you're about to get run over by a train, I guarantee you this is not the case.

Since all is good news (yes even the bad stuff) even if it certainly doesn't look like it at the time, we can be grateful that things are not as they seem. Because, yes, things seem to be crazy and definitely unsettling at times... but they are usually the first -- or one-thousandth -- step in a journey that we are taking... whether as individuals or as a planet.

Thus, this week, we reflect on (amongst many other articles) "Getting the Upper Hand Over Impatience", "Disillusionment: The Best Thing That Can Happen To You", "Shifting Paradigms From Ownership To Stewardship For True Abundance", and "Going With The Flow Of Unpredictability"... and more...

We invite you to read and reflect on the articles shared by our authors and let them lead you where your heart longs to guide you. Scroll down below for many more articles for your inspiration...

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Going With The Flow Of Unpredictability

Written by Nancy Windheart

Going With The Flow Of Unpredictability
I talk with a lot of people in the course of a week…and I can tell you that people are dealing with a lot right now. There is a huge amount of change, uncertainty, anxiety, fear, transformation, loss, grief, joy, revelation, ecstasy, and hope all happening at once.

Disillusionment: The Best Thing That Can Happen To You

Written by Jon Mundy

Disillusionment: The Best Thing That Can Happen To You

The outside world, as constructed by the ego, is one gigantic multiple personality disorder. Therefore, disillusionment, or giving up on the world, is an imperative prelude to mystical awareness. American author Dan Millman, in his book Way of the Peaceful Warrior, says that disillusionment is the best thing that can happen to someone...

We have lost contact with our Inner...

Making Room For Unstoppable Inner Peace

Written by Corinne Zupko

Making Room For Unstoppable Inner Peace
I used to get really freaked out by the idea that the more I turned to Love, the more the ego would roar at me and whip me back into place. I am well aware that the ego will pull out any evidence to “prove” to us that we are not of Love. Some have referred to this as an “ego backlash.”
