Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week we look at important questions. Not "Who Am I" but more in the area of "Who Am I Being" and "What Am I Doing"? These are the important questions: Who we are being in the moment, what actions are we taking or not taking, how we are expressing ourselves in the world, how we are treating ourselves and others.
We reflect on Healing through Spontaneous Writing; Making Yoga Practice into a Meditation of Insight; Culture, Communication and Body Language; Intelligence Without Humility; 6 Ways to Live an Inspired Life; and I share with you a new article I wrote, Cup Half Full? Change Your Cup!
We also have more than 50 "Additional Articles" on a variety of topics from pets, to climate, plants, the elderly, exercise, the economy, the Colorado River, truth-telling, and much more. (Scroll down below the Editor's Choice articles for the list of "Additional Articles" of the week.)
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

We add articles to the website daily. Rather than wait for the newsletter, you can visit each section according to your interests throughout the week. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".
The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.
The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (including Meditation), Intuition & Awareness (including astrology), and Happiness & Success.
"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics are very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
