Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your Inner Self.

This new issue also brings with it the new website... All new programs, new look, more ways for you to discover articles to read and videos to watch.... At the bottom of each article, you'll find more articles by the author (when they've written more than one article on InnerSelf).

We would love your assistance in making this transition to the new website as seamless as possible. There may be some kinks in the transition to the new website, so we invite you to contact us and let us know. The website is huge and it's near impossible for us to check each and every page, so as you're browsing through the site, if you find something that's wrong or that doesn't work, please let us know. (Use the contact form under the "This and That" menu on each page.)

If you encounter a problem on the site, to make sure it's not just a glitch with cache, please refresh your page first to make sure it's not just a one-time issue. If you contact us to advise us of a problem, please make sure you include the type of computer you're on (desktop or mobile, PC, Apple, iPhone, Android, etc.) and also the browser you're using (Firefox, Opera, etc.) Also, providing us with the url address of the page on which you experienced a difficulty will help resolve any issues.

We hope you'll enjoy the new website which is the culmination of weeks of diligent and intense work on our part, and also the celebration of InnerSelf's 30 year existence.

There are lots of new articles this week, and rather than tell you about them, I'll let you discover them for yourself. :)  Scroll down below for the list and links.

How To Go From Wrong-Mindedness to Peace of Mind

Written by Debra Landwehr Engle

This story is about a seemingly small event in my life that took on miraculous significance because of the lessons that came with it. I’m not a theologian; in fact, I’ve found most of my spiritual sustenance outside traditional religion...

Would You Call Yourself A Replica or A Rebel?

Would You Call Yourself A Replica or A Rebel?

Written by Simran Singh

Your truth cannot have an effect if it goes unspoken, or if not acted upon. Where would we be if people did not question systems? Where would we be if people such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Mother Teresa, Einstein, John Lennon, and Jesus did not speak and live their truth?

You Can Reactivate Your Dream & Your Purpose After Retirement

What Does One Do After Retirement?

Written by Pamela D. Blair, PhD.

As a retiree or person nearing retire­ment, you now have the opportunity to go where your heart leads you. You can also get lost or run in circles. To know where you’re going and how to get there, you need a map. Even if you look forward to retire­ment, you’re giving up an identity and need to create a new one.

I Came to My Senses by Taking a Spirit Walk

Come to Your Senses by Taking a Spirit Walk

Written by Tina Welling

I had just been outdoors, but I couldn’t say what the sky looked like, cloudy or clear, or whether birds sang or if I’d felt a breeze on my cheeks. I had been locked inside my head, thinking. After that, a phrase I’d heard all of my life, “Come to your senses,” began to take on new meaning.
