Beyond Prosaic Reality

 “I believe that within the core of every human being dwells a yearning for the meaning that lies beyond the prosaic reality of everyday life. We reach out for evidence of something beyond the ordinary.”     ~ Denise Linn       Earthschool Harmony *** Love the image beside these words—the perspective juxtaposition of immediate foreground against theContinue reading “Beyond Prosaic Reality”

‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last

I did chuckle when I saw this saying above: “To understand nothing takes time,” because I remember thinking as a junior in high school that there couldn’t be ANYTHING new to learn that I already did not know, so what was the point of my senior year?  Ha-ha. (Yes, I actually said that.) It’s hardContinue reading “‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last”

Creating Our Personal Reality

Haven’t mentioned Dr. Joe in awhile, so since today he seems to be touching on the REALITY subject that I’ve been recently exploring, I’ll list him as a good source of theoretical discourse and experiential training in what it takes to shift your thinking, your energy, and then your life to what you truly wantContinue reading “Creating Our Personal Reality”

The Transition of Thich Nhat Hanh

Plum Village Public Notice: “The International Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism announces that our beloved teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has passed away peacefully at Từ Hiếu Temple in Huế, Vietnam, on 22nd January, 2022, at the age of 95. We invite our global spiritual family to take a few moments to be still, toContinue reading “The Transition of Thich Nhat Hanh”

From A Female Perspective

 “When the Yoga Sutra began to be taught by priests and scholars from a masculine Hindu tradition, one with the power of gurus and temples and decades of study behind it, the feminine aspect of Spirit, Devi, began to be pushed aside and a disdainful attitude toward women arose.” – Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. Yoga, Power,Continue reading “From A Female Perspective”

Reinventing Ourselves

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”  ~ Hal Borland ~ Art by Mark Duffin (shared from   ॐ Simplicity, Elegance and Grace of Nature ॐ ) *** As one who has spent decades reinventing myself career-wise or at leastContinue reading “Reinventing Ourselves”

How I Feel

*** “The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, they speak to me. The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me. The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning, the dewdrop on the flower, speaks toContinue reading “How I Feel”

NLP and Reframing Situations

While listening to a Brandy Gillmore session this morning on healing a client’s self-blame/inner-guilt, I finally realized what techniques she was actually using with her client—it was a mixture of distant energy-work, combined with light hypnosis and some serious NLP (Neuro-Linguistist Programming) phrasing and reframing meant to shift the client’s current unhealthy ‘stuck-perspective’ and expandContinue reading “NLP and Reframing Situations”

Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’

Alberto Villoldo   “We have to become still in the midst of the turmoil so we can observe clearly how our actions and the actions of others, past and present, fit together in the tapestry of life. In the timeless instant when we stop moving and simply witness the moment, the dust settles and the bigContinue reading “Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’”

Becoming a Spiritual Warrior

I really didn’t want to blatantly rip off Alberto Villoldo’s latest newsletter, but what he mentions here is worth sharing in its entirety with others who might have some interest in the subject matter discussed. In some ways this does remind me of Buddhism’s “Eight-fold Path”—or “The Way to Enlightenment,” complete with the “Four NobleContinue reading “Becoming a Spiritual Warrior”

Sudoku Revelation

I was journaling a few days ago and mentioned that I’d just had a minor revelation while working a more challenging Sudoku puzzle, which was to “Keep working it,” until the correct number for that square became obvious (‘can be this number, but can’t be that one’, etc.). That one breakthrough puzzle piece then becameContinue reading “Sudoku Revelation”

Healing Our Collective Trauma

Because I’ve signed up for other FREE online psychology/spirituality conferences, I now receive numerous offers for additional conferences; and this is one I will definitely be registering for as I recognize a few speakers from other summits, etc.  I’ll admit that I am one of the most ‘dangerous of beasts’: an armchair psychologist with noContinue reading “Healing Our Collective Trauma”
