InnerSelf Newsletter: March 24th, 2019

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at love... not the Valentine's Day kind of love, but love of self, love of others (human and not), and love of humanity, which all ties in with kindness, acceptance, etc. We start with Sonja Grace who speaks of "The Ongoing Search for Love". Then, Lynn B. Robinson asks "Is Out of Body Intimacy Possible?" and Cate Montana answers that question in an article entitled "From Enlightenment to Romance in One (Not So) Easy Step" where she shares about her upcoming novel, Apollo & Me.

Then I have written a new installment in my "What Works For Me" series: "What Works For Me: Love Is All There Is". And then we round it all up with love in action in "Act with Kindness, Considering Everyone and Everything".

And of course, lots of additional articles on a wide variety of topics. Scroll down below for all the links...

You may notice changes throughout the website as we move over to the new faster server with a new layout. We had it online yesterday and this morning, but reverted to the old site as we discovered too many details needed attending to. If you discover errors, broken links, we invite you to contact us either by replying to this email or via the Contact Us form on the website (accessible from the Home Page and the This & That menu). Your help would be appreciated. If you report an error, please describe the error and provide the link of the page you were on when it occurred. The more info the better, so we can identify the problem and fix it. Thank you.

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK


The Ongoing Search for Love

Written by Sonja Grace

The Ongoing Search for Love

The search for love is one all humans, throughout lifetimes, have experienced. We search for those connections in each lifetime. It is our reason for being. We look for love believing we have to alter ourselves in some way in order to attract it, when in fact we need to be loved for who we are.

From Enlightenment to Romance in One (Not So) Easy Step

Written by Cate Montana

From Enlightenment to Romance in One (Not So) Easy Step

As I hiked up the old E4 trail above the temple complex at Delphi, romance was the last thing on my mind let alone a dalliance with the ancient forgotten Greek god of Light and Wisdom. It was April of 2015, and all I wanted to do was to get away from the tourists and my worries about a book deadline with Simon & Schuster...

What Works For Me: Love Is All There Is

Written by Marie T. Russell, InnerSelf

What Works For Me: Love Is All There Is

Years ago, I knew someone who used to say "Love is all there is". This was his "mantra" and he repeated it often to whoever was willing to listen. At the time, I was in my twenties and his statement would aggravate me to no end. After all, how could he say that "love s all there is" when there were wars, famine, murders, crimes of all kinds, etc. etc.

Act with Kindness, Considering Everyone and Everything

Written by Darren Cockburn

Act with Kindness, Considering Everyone and Everything

Kindness towards people means being considerate, friendly and generous. The opposite to kindness is intentionally causing harm. The Process rewards us for deeds of kindness, and corrects us for deeds of harm. There are always consequences for our actions.
