InnerSelf Newsletter: February 10th, 2019

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at our connectivity with the "wholeness" of humanity... and with ourselves. We start by clearing the deck with "Four Problem Areas That Could Be Bringing You Down", and then move on to "Being On The Same Page: A Human Being Cannot Exist As An Island".

Joseph Gallenberger speaks of "The Open Heart: Antidote to Fear, Limitations and Restrictions" while Jalaja Bonheim shares about "Compassionate Actions and Ripples of Change".

From a brand new book, Future Sacred (being released Tuesday, Feb. 12th), we bring you "The Gift of Self: Contributing To -- and Serving -- The Wider Collective". Pierre Pradervand rounds up our featured articles with "The Power of One: You Are Me and I Am You".

And of course, we have numerous additional articles on a variety of topics. Scroll down below to find all the new articles of the week. 

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

Four Problem Areas That Could Be Bringing You Down

Written by Cindy Goodman Stulberg and Ronald J. Frey

 Four Problem Areas That Could Be Bringing You Down

Do you think your mood difficulties are linked to your childhood, your first romantic relationship, your choice to study one subject in college rather than another, the city you settled in, or your career path? Spending time in the past may help you to answer the question why, but it won’t give you the tools to feel better in the present.

Being On The Same Page: A Human Being Cannot Exist As An Island

Written by Teal Swan

Being On The Same Page: A Human Being Cannot Exist As An Island

The truth is that a human being cannot exist as an island. We cannot thrive alone. We don’t want to be excluded. The truth is, we desperately want to belong to each other. And the highest truth of all is that in a universe where oneness is the highest truth of all, there is nothing in this universe that we don’t belong with and there is nothing in existence that doesn’t belong with us.

The Open Heart: Antidote to Fear, Limitations and Restrictions

Written by Joseph Gallenberger, Ph.D.

The Open Heart: Antidote to Fear, Limitations and Restrictions

Is it likely for most of us that past life, early childhood, and then community experiences all generate doubts and self-imposed limits that cloud our ability to see that we can be a successful creator of a terrific life. Further, such experiences cause us to question our own lovability and the goodness of the universe.

Compassionate Actions and Ripples of Change

Written by Jalaja Bonheim, PhD.

Compassionate Actions and Ripples of Change

I believe there is. When we speak of activism, we usually think of organized activities. Yet beyond that, we all have opportunities to act in ways that reflect our desire for social justice and peace. Whether or not we’re “official” activists, we’re always taking action, all the time. Every day, we’re making choices that will impact not only our own future but also that of others.

The Gift of Self: Contributing To -- and Serving -- The Wider Collective

Written by Julie J. Morley

The Gift of Self: Contributing To -- and Serving -- The Wider Collective

In indigenous gift-sharing and kinship societies, individuals do not “win” at the expense of society but rather consider society’s win as theirs. Futurist Riane Eisler referred to this as “linking rather than ranking,” typical of the partnership paradigm, and the antithesis to the dominator paradigm. “Empowerment of self and others” characterizes the partnership model.

The Power of One: You Are Me and I Am You

Written by Pierre Pradervand

The Power of One: You Are Me and I Am You

One of the more amazing and beautiful aspects of the internet is that it is becoming the most powerful tool ever to spread ideas instantaneously worldwide, including a growing sense of one world consciousness and our oneness with all life. Little by little, it is assisting us go beyond the old, tired dualistic vision of the world and to spread ever more widely and rapidly the non-dualist consciousness...
