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.
Marie T. Russell

Written by Jon Mundy
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...

Written by Barbara Berger
\We have been trained to, and have become so used to, focusing on other people and on trying to please other people. Most of us have learned from an early age to try to tune ourselves into what other people are wanting and needing. Because of this we have lost contact with ourselves. We have lost contact with our Inner...

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.”
