InnerSelf Newsletter: January 6th, 2019

InnerSelf Newsletter: January 6th, 2018

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we reflect on the interconnectivity of all things. Barry Vissell shares about "The 3 Stages of Life: Moving From Complete Dependence to Conscious Dependence". Will Wilkinson speaks of "Entering The Wilderness Together: Being “In This World But Not Of It". And bobby (Robert Jennings) asks: "Anybody Seen My Good Friend Robin?" 

 As we recognize our oneness and how every single thing affects the whole, whether physically or emotionally, we come to the realization that we have arrived at "The Great Breaking Open: The Time Is Ripe For Transformation". What may appear to us as turmoil and terrible events provide the doorway for change. Alan Seale (The Great Breaking Open) gives a wonderful portrayal of the path we are on as common inhabitants of the same planet... the path of transformation.

And this week, as in previous weeks, we have numerous additional articles on a variety of topics. One of them is "7 Reasons The World Is Actually Becoming A Better Place". Scroll down below for the links to all of our new articles of the week. Also found below is the coming week's astrological journal with insights as to the energies that we may be encountering this week.

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

Entering The Wilderness Together: Being “In This World But Not Of It”

To be “in this world but not of it” is the ultimate challenge. It's so much easier to withdraw from the craziness or get lost in it.

The 3 Stages of Life: Moving From Complete Dependence to Conscious Dependence
