Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Perhaps our life purpose could be summarized as "The Quest for Healing"... healing our relationships, ourselves, our pets, our communications, our politics, our world. Healing is where we need to place our focus, our presence, in all of our endeavors and relationships.

We could also use the word Love to describe this healing process and purpose... again, loving our world, ourselves, and everything and everyone in our life and our Planet. It's a big project, but yet so simple. It only requires our presence and our unconditional Love.

This week, as every week, we at InnerSelf bring you articles and videos to assist you on your journey of Love and Healing. May your week be Loving and Purpose-full.

Scroll down for the new articles and videos that were added to the website this week.

Please visit our YouTube channel and subscribe. Thank you.

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