InnerSelf Newsletter: May 26th, 2019Image by Brigitte Werner

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Once again I feel like starting the newsletter with the words "the times, they are a'changing"... and perhaps it is a mantra for these times, as well as an observation, and of course also a vision to create. Our featured authors this week are focusing on the big picture... the changes that are taking place as well as the changes we need to implement ourselves. As always, our goal at InnerSelf is to inform, inspire, and empower you to create a better world for yourself and for all.

I am reminded of the quote attributed to Mahatma Gandhi advising to "Be the change you wish to see in the world". For full disclosure, it has been shown that Gandhi never actually spoke those exact words, but rather a longer more complete version: "“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do.”

So the message remains that we must change ourselves first, and not wait for others to change. This is true self-empowerment. We don't expect others to change the world for us, or even expect others to change. We change ourselves and take appropriate actions in our own lives and then expand to our world.

So this week, in order to help us focus on the "requirements" of this transition, we offer you a new author to InnerSelf, Gwilda Wiyaka, and present a first excerpt from her book: "So, We're Still Here. Now What?". Her article is entitled: "Wheels Within Wheels: Ultimate Truth or Ever-Evolving Truth? ". We then move on to some of our "regular" monthly authors who offer us articles on the same theme of "changes taking place and changes needed".

Alan Seale asks "Is Opening Your Heart Simplistic, Naïve, And Disconnected From Reality?" while Will Wilkinson shares "How To Use "New Thinking" To Escape The Drama Triangle".Then Nancy Windheart helps us see our connection to "The Spirit in All Things... and the Entire World"  and Eileen Workman reminds us "There IS a Reason for Living". Long-time InnerSelf author, Jude Bijou, wraps up our featured articles with "Just Say NO to Negativity!".

Please scroll down for the featured articles in this new issue of InnerSelf, and also the recap of all the articles that were added to the website during the week, including this week's "Astrological Journal".

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

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK


Wheels Within Wheels: Ultimate Truth or Ever-Evolving Truth?

Written by Gwilda Wiyaka

Wheels Within Wheels: Ultimate Truth or Ever-Evolving Truth?

We stand at the precipice of a remarkable adventure—the adventure of human evolution. We may have been here before but never in recorded history and never exactly like this. By simply being alive during these potent times, we have become the chosen ones to steward an entirely new way of being.


Is Opening Your Heart Simplistic, Naïve, And Disconnected From Reality?

Written by Alan Seale

Is Opening Your Heart Simplistic, Naïve, And Disconnected From Reality?

To just say, “You have to open your heart!” can be perceived by many people as overly simplistic, naïve, and disconnected from reality. It can be interpreted as a feel-good-warm-and-fuzzy approach that has no substance. And it can give the impression that you are in denial of the magnitude of what is happening.


How To Use "New Thinking" To Escape The Drama Triangle

Written by Will Wilkinson

How To Use

Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve our problems with the same thinking that we used to create them.” I wonder what he would say today? My guess is that he would be shouting aloud while pointing to the life-threatening problems our old thinking has produced.

There IS a Reason for Living

Written by Eileen Workman

There IS a Reason for Living

We keep compulsively trying to control everything all around us to protect our fragile biological bodies…too often without the slightest sense of awareness that there exists within us a vast, subjective realm of eternal wisdom, filled with boundless creative capacity, that longs to...


Just Say NO to Negativity!

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.

Just Say NO to Negativity

When we don't express our anger constructively, we go negative with our judgments and feel mad because the world isn't living up to our expectations. Over the years, this becomes the lens through which we view the world. Instead of dealing with our emotions...
