Living with Ambiguity and Uncertainty

This is the last ‘quote-fest’ from James Hollis’s Living an Examined Life—I promise. I think what I noticed from reading and then scrutinizing quotes from this book, is that it inspired me to do a “What was the meaning of MY LIFE?” recapitulation searching for major themes and significant affecters that helped to make meContinue reading “Living with Ambiguity and Uncertainty”

Insight, Courage, Endurance

How do we as individuals, survive difficult times? I know everyone is a little bit different in how they view the world that we all share, including how they see themselves in it, and even in how they strategize how to personally make it from one day to the next with their sanity intact. AndContinue reading “Insight, Courage, Endurance”

This LIFE Is Ours to Choose

After that Jungian summit a few months ago, I liked best the session by James Hollis, PhD, so I purchased a couple of his latest books: 1) Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey, and 2) Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times. For me, reading Hollis isContinue reading “This LIFE Is Ours to Choose”

The Certainty of Ignorance

Had I not just read a copy of (and stifled a critical comment on) the shared-sermon spoken Sunday at my friend’s church service, I might have brushed over this little interchange below, but the “absolute certainty” expressed in the comment on the picture presented above accentuated my earlier feeling on the sermon’s ‘factual accuracy.’ “AnotherContinue reading “The Certainty of Ignorance”

Now Consider ‘Somebody Versus Nobody’

Dr. Joe continued to elaborate on that ‘something versus nothing’ quantum field concept the next day, so before I move on to another subject here, I think it’s worth viewing his explanation conclusion of how we are personally affected by it. Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE “Most of us embrace theContinue reading “Now Consider ‘Somebody Versus Nobody’”

The Quantum Nothing

I knew there was a ‘reason’ for writing “Something vs. Nothing”, I just didn’t know the reason until today. Here Dr. Joe elaborates on the concept. “Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE The quantum is a multidimensional reality that exists beyond your senses, in a realm where there is no body, noContinue reading “The Quantum Nothing”

James Van Praagh Book Quotes

Here is a book well worth perusing: James Van Praagh’s Adventures of the Soul: Journeys Through the Physical and Spiritual Dimensions Long ago I accepted an opportunity to receive the online PDF version of Van Praagh’s Adventures of the Soul  book that was made available (likely through Hay House). I’ve read parts of it but I’mContinue reading “James Van Praagh Book Quotes”

Eckhart Tolle on DOING and BEING

Sometimes ‘seeing with new eyes’ requires us to make a serious perspective shift; and I really like what Eckhart Tolle did here with his explanation on “DOING” and “BEING”. (Click his name to reach his Facebook page.) “Eckhart Tolle  Dear friends, Over the years, many people have asked me about finding their purpose in thisContinue reading “Eckhart Tolle on DOING and BEING”

Defining Your Identity

“Who ARE you?”   Can you truthfully answer that above question? I’ve identified myself so many different ways during all the phases of my life that I’m not sure how I would have answered that question during each of those growth phases, because to me IDENTITY has more to do with how we think ofContinue reading “Defining Your Identity”

The Birth of Empathy

“’For every event in life,’ says the Dalai Lama, ‘there are many different angles.’ There is, perhaps, no greater route to joy than this. Taking a ‘God’s-eye perspective,’ as Archbishop Tutu says, allows for the birth of empathy—the trait that creates joy not only in the one, but in the many. Empathy opens the doorContinue reading “The Birth of Empathy”

The Things We Tell Ourselves

“Every fragment of self-talk is a little story in the head that goes around, and then you look at reality through the lens of the little story.”  Eckhart Tolle I didn’t title this “The LIES We Tell Ourselves” because sometimes those replaying thought-monologs aren’t really ‘lies,’ but are more likely residues of our optimistic ‘wishfulContinue reading “The Things We Tell Ourselves”

Transformation

To describe ‘transformation’ is like asking a butterfly to write an autobiography tracing its journey from egg larva to crawling caterpillar to the colorful ‘winged-goddess-in-perpetual-motion’ of today. THAT complete structural metamorphosis epitomizes ‘transformation’ in so many ways—biochemically, physically, and behaviorally; because the living being that it once was is suddenly no more, and what itContinue reading “Transformation”
