Cultivating Joy

ॐ Nature Heals, Nature Reveals ॐ “I don’t think anyone ‘finds’ joy. Rather, we cultivate it by searching for the preciousness of small things, the ordinary miracles, that strengthen our hearts so we can keep them open to what is difficult: delight in taking a shower or a slow walk that has no destination, inContinue reading “Cultivating Joy”

Examining the Roles That We Play

Eckhart Tolle “Authentic human interactions become impossible when you lose yourself in a role.” – Eckhart Tolle Over the course of our lives we learn many informative techniques to advance our personal lives in one direction or another. We may even choose a role in life often associated with our strong need for personal satisfactionContinue reading “Examining the Roles That We Play”

The Amazing Verb Called ‘Bucky’

I am such a fan of R. Buckminster Fuller that whenever I see someone else quote him, I stop whatever I’m doing and read it. This 5ft-2 inch intellectual powerhouse was an ‘American engineer, architect, and futurist who developed the geodesic dome—the only large dome that can be set directly on the ground as aContinue reading “The Amazing Verb Called ‘Bucky’”

The End of Victimization

I was listening this morning to a free promo video on Caroline Myss’ “The Mystical Truths Behind Radical Change”.  Pretty sure she has an entire course on the subject (“The Great Transformation”), and I can offer you the Myss promo to view to decide if you might want to learn more:  https://product.soundstrue.com/the-great-transformation/free-video/ It seems toContinue reading “The End of Victimization”

Myopic Creatures

“Humans are myopic creatures full of hubris to a degree that is laughable.” –Daniel   Amen to that, brother.  Myself included. This quote was from an email by “Daniel” from Awakentheworld.com about the new film “Samadhi: Part 3”; and it’s a short bit revisited from his encounter with the Seraphim—highest order of angels—next to God.Continue reading “Myopic Creatures”

Consulting ‘Doctor ME’

I’m still reviewing the Cope Yoga book, and remembering now how substantive this book could be since Stephen Cope was a practicing psychotherapist applying the Yoga Sutra principles to his working-group associations.  Lots to ponder here.  Very deep read. But as I review the book, I think one of the most prevalent thoughts for meContinue reading “Consulting ‘Doctor ME’”

LIFE Itself IS the Path

“LIFE itself IS the path”  This post’s title is not a new thought or slogan; but while reading a book review, seeing it stated again today struck me as timely for consolidating my own meandering thoughts. Because what are we ALL experiencing in some way right now?   LIFE. This ‘whatever–it-is’ that we are currently enduringContinue reading “LIFE Itself IS the Path”

I Believe…

Anytime I elaborate on the subject of “beliefs” I know that I run the risk of offending others, but I truly think we all need to better examine WHY we believe what we do at this point in our lives. I myself was born and raised in the Heartland of America—Baptized Lutheran as a babyContinue reading “I Believe…”

Common Understandings

I’m big into self-realization and self-actualization, and even had a division in my own company, Foundations of Light, LLC, that was called “True-Self Actualization”—meaning that I conducted classes on teaching others how to recognize and actualize their True Self. I know. These are just words. They mean little if you can’t even get your headContinue reading “Common Understandings”

Be the Awareness

“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.” Eckhart Tolle Many times that suggestion is easier said than done, but I do know that it is possible to do it.  Throughout the day I’ve begun asking myself WHY I am thinking what I am thinking, or WHY I am feeling theContinue reading “Be the Awareness”

Reflections On My Left Hand

I have far greater appreciation now for the lesser-used appendage: my left hand. Last Wednesday morning bright and early I took a “woops” dive off the back stoop—two steps high. As I plummeted to the ground I turned mid-flight to brace myself before I hit the ground, and naturally put my right hand out toContinue reading “Reflections On My Left Hand”

Traumatic Emotional Impacts Become Looping Negative Memories

Saw a short video by Dr. Pat Ogden, the creator of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, on helping a young anxiety client to counter her own reactive responses to the world around her. Ogden is one of the few well-known psychotherapists who treat clients more holistically recognizing that the kinetic movements or posturing of the physical body oftenContinue reading “Traumatic Emotional Impacts Become Looping Negative Memories”
