InnerSelf Newsletter: August 25, 2019

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Perhaps the goal of life is to become who we are... or, we could say "to rediscover who we are"... or perhaps more descriptively "to sweep away the accumulation of patterns, fears, repressed emotions, etc. etc which have covered up the shiny truth of our inner light".

This week our articles focus on assisting you in the process of giving yourself permission to be true to your Self... which is a wonderful Loving being of Light.

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.

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

Creating A Sacred Environment For Sleep

Written by Lee Harris

Creating A Sacred Environment For Sleep

The mastery of sleep is to know what sleeping conditions you need and recognize the sacredness of those conditions. If you are protesting that you do not have time to recognize the sacredness of sleep right now, that’s okay. See and know that. Acknowledge that right now you may be prioritizing busyness over sacredness.


The Great Liberation: Becoming What You Are

Written by Alan Watts

The Great Liberation: Becoming What You Are

How I Flunked the Science Fair but Saved the World
