The Road Forward: Developing The Habit of a Can Do Attitude

Lessons, Lessons, Lessons! Not All Lessons Have To Be Painful
I know some of you, myself included, feel that lessons must be painful to be appreciated or remembered. Contrary to popular belief, not all lessons have to be painful. Some can even be fun. It's all in the 'moral to the story'. Life gives us wonderful examples to follow ... allow me to illustrate.

It Is Imperative We Return To Wu-Wei’s Natural Flow of Tao

It Is Imperative We Return To Wu-Wei’s Natural Flow of TaoIn the world that we live in now, with ecological destruction for the sake of material possessions and with the divisions among humanity, a return to our wu-wei nature is imperative, or we will face the dire consequences of our ignorant actions.

Is Believing Without Evidence Morally Wrong?

Is Believing Without Evidence Morally Wrong?You have probably never heard of William Kingdon Clifford.

Shifting Out of the Age of Fear into the Aquarian Age, The Age of Love

Shifting Out of the Age of Fear into the Aquarian Age, The Age of LoveMemories and responses to living are passed through your genes from one generation to another.

Looking for the Gold in the Ashes of Pain

Looking for the Gold in the Ashes of Pain
When we’re in severe or chronic pain, our normal life is not available to us in the way it used to be. Instead, living in pain feels like being taken out of life.

In each one of us there resides these extremes, or at least a presence of these realities -- though maybe not in the extreme.

How To Control Stress Before It Controls You
Ultimately, the most effective ways to increase happiness, optimism, and resilience depend on each unique individual and each particular situation. Paths to greater wellness are varied.

Consensus Reality: Are We All Sharing The Same Illusion?

Consensus Reality: Are We All Sharing The Same Illusion?
Consensus reality occurs when others agree with our dominant conframes and we all forget that we're only dealing with our habitual interpretations and not reality itself.

What Are The Chances? Right Place, Right Time, Right Purpose

What Are The Chances? Right Place, Right Time, Right Purpose
Do you believe that the universe operates at random, or is there a higher intelligence that orchestrates encounters, events, and a stream of destiny? After observing many uncanny synchronicities, I have a firm belief that, despite appearances of haphazardness, a brilliant and loving hand guides us to our right place at the right time for the right purpose.

Changing Perceptions and Cleaning Out the Mind's Cubbyholes

Changing Perceptions and Cleaning Out the Mind's Cubbyholes
Let's imagine our minds as being filled with rows of cubbyholes. Each cubbyhole represents a particular relationship in our lives. Some of these cubbyholes contain largely benevolent thoughts. Others are filled with grievances and other dark thoughts. As I begin to think of those people, I may find a significant amount of resentment or anger stored away...

The Path with Heart Requires Surrendering to Spirit

The Path with Heart Requires Surrendering to Spirit

God Is Not Coming: It Is Human Beings Who Decide The Fate Of Humanity

God Is Not Coming: It Is Human Beings Who Decide The Fate Of Humanity
Heaven and hell both exist on this planet today. This day. There is not some day in the future where our free agency to make any choices that we want will be locked down. Where there will be a judgment made, and some eternal status assigned to us. We will not be “assigned” a heaven or hell experience. It is us, the human beings, who decide the fate of humanity.

Standing Up and Stepping In: Taking Personal Responsibility for Your Life

10 20 standing up and stepping in taking charge of your life
Being passive developed as a pattern for a really good reason -- we were avoiding feeling our emotions (especially sadness) and had to find some place to channel the sensations we were experiencing. Maybe dad was a tyrant and we felt like we had no choice but to be quiet and duck. Maybe our classmates laughed at us when we made a mistake, and we decided being shy was safer.

Are You Ignoring Your Inner Wound Via Cynicism Or Spiritual Bypass?

Are We Ignoring Our Inner Wound Via Cynicism Or Spiritual Bypass?
I am not some enlightened being trying to guide you on a journey he has already completed. That is an old model, partaking of a kind of spiritual hierarchy based on a linear conception of the evolution of consciousness. In the present transition, each of us is pioneering a unique part of the territory of Reunion. In keeping with that, I must offer you my doubt and conflict along with my insight.

Why The Ego Makes It Difficult to Recognize Love

Why Egos Make It Difficult to Recognize Love
It may surprise you to learn that your ego doesn't believe that love really exists, but it's true. Just think! When you allow your ego to direct your search for love, you are actually asking the only thing in the universe that doesn't know what love is, to find it for you.

A Way to Change Your Life: Speak Only Words of Love

A Way to Change Your Life: Speak Only Words of Love

Negative Self-Talk: How Did Those Critical Voices Get In There?

Negative Self-Talk: How Did Those Critical Voices Get In There?
I believe that the primary goals of consciousness are to keep us alive and to stave off trauma or potential future trauma. Now if I am correct (and I may not be), then self-harm or the extreme of self-harm — self-annihilation — would be extremely difficult. Consider the statistics...

Meeting Our Shadow Self and Attaining a True State of Peace

Science Says Happiness Can Change Your Brain

Science Says Happiness Can Change Your Brain
The paths we take in search of happiness often lead us to frustration and suffering instead. We try to create outer conditions that we believe will make us happy.

If I told you that there was just one thing you could do that would give you everything you want, would you do it? Well, all you have to do is believe!

Tips For Being Happy, Youthful, and Joyful -- at any Age

Tips For Being Happy, Youthful, and Joyful -- at any Age
We live in a culture that worships youth and beauty and often disregards, disrespects and diminishes age. This is a shame for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that everyone is growing older every day. Don't be defined by it. Don't allow the culture to define you. Don't allow others to diminish you in any way. It's time to take back control of your life and...

Adventuring Into Midlife: Transformation via Breakdowns and Breakthroughs

Adventuring Into Midlife: Transformation via Breakdowns and Breakthroughs
I had accepted our culture's stale and simplistic view of adulthood -- that the person you are at midlife is the person you will always be. At precisely the time when I thought my development was coming to an end, I found myself embarking on a totally unexpected journey of growth and change... the "second half of life".

Is There An Unhappiness Epidemic?

Is There An Unhappiness Epidemic?

We’d all like to be a little happier. The problem is that much of what determines happiness is outside of our control. Some of us are genetically predisposed to see the world through rose-colored glasses, while others have a generally negative outlook. Bad things happen, to us and in the world. People can be unkind, and jobs can be tedious.

Is It the End of the Trail or Just the the Beginning?

Is It the End of the Trail or the Beginning?
One of my favorite hiking trails on Maui leads to a magnificent hidden waterfall far off the beaten path. The path to the waterfall begins as an offshoot of a main trail in a county park.

Fulfilling Our Individual Destiny: Spiritual Laws and Life Purpose

Fulfilling Our Individual Destiny: Spiritual Laws and Life Purpose
Human laws form a basis of social agreement and social order, but human laws are only pale reflections of a higher order of laws sewn into the fabric of existence. These laws govern the movement of the Earth, the cycle of seasons, the forces of nature, and the structure of the atom itself. The great laws existed before humanity, before nature.

How Measuring Performance By Numbers Backfires

How Measuring Performance By Numbers Backfires
More and more companies, government agencies, educational institutions and philanthropic organisations are today in the grip of a new phenomenon. I’ve termed it ‘metric fixation’. The key components of metric fixation are the belief that it is possible – and desirable – to replace professional judgment (acquired through personal experience and talent) with numerical indicators of comparative performance based upon standardised data (metrics); and that the best way to motivate people within these organisations is by attaching rewards and penalties to their measured performance.
