InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

November 30, 2023

The focus for today is:

I seek clarity: in my thinking, feelings, goals, actions, relationships, and results.

Today's inspiration was written by Marc Lesser:

I feel we are at a crucial tipping point in our workplaces, our families, our society, and our planet. There is a tremendous need to find clarity: in our thinking, feelings, goals, actions, relationships, and results.

To solve problems, to be effective and successful, to lead a more satisfying life, we need to see problems clearly and foster agreement on what they are. We need to identify a shared vision that guides our efforts to fix things or achieve what we want.

With this clarity, we have the potential to create warmer, more caring, more focused, and more effective workplaces and relationships, as well as to help heal social rifts and even repair our world.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Clarity Beyond Duality: The Practice of Compassionate Accountability
     Written by Marc Lesser.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of clarity (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
I find that noise keeps me from getting clarity. And that noise includes radio or TV or even music playing in the background. I find that my brain veers towards the sound and away from my getting clarity on whatever I am involved in. So I highly recommend silence as a tool to find clarity... turn off the background :filler noises". In the quiet you will be able to get in touch with your inner voice and gain clarity.

Our focus for today: I seek clarity: in my thinking, feelings, goals, actions, relationships, and results.
