Love Our Neighbor--There Is No Choice!

Abstract:

One of the simplest, most familiar, and important messages we receive is to love our neighbor. Unfortunately, this is a difficult message for many to manifest consistently in their daily lives. A difficulty reflected in the lack of civility often seen between neighbors near and far. The roots of this difficulty begin with the notion that loving our neighbor is a choice. A choice built upon ego illusions of separation, inequality, and unworthiness with which we come to know…

Fred's Mom was Right--Look for the Helpers!

Abstract:

Fred Rogers’ mom taught him to look for the helpers in times of great difficulty. A lesson for all of us as we face challenges in which soft targets such as schools, places of worship, stores, concerts, sporting events, and shopping malls can in an instant become scenes of unspeakable tragedy. Our helpers are to be found in many places and their love which promotes healing is much stronger than hatred, and the fear in which it is rooted.

Truth--So Near Yet So Far Away

Abstract:

Our connection to truth—human and Divine—profoundly impacts our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Unfortunately, it is near yet so far away. However, if we are willing to look within to address issues involving ego power, flexibility, and vulnerability, we can remove ego illusions involving inequality, unworthiness, and separation which serve as barriers to knowing, living, and being our truth.

Have You Met the Lesser Version of Yourself?

Abstract:

The journey to becoming the best version of ourselves often involves an important detour. A detour in which we must come face-to-face with a person we may not want to meet but need to meet if our journey is to be completed. This person is the lesser version of ourselves who is being impacted by unhealthy and imbalanced ego energy which will block movement forward along our journey including the spiritual portion of it, until we recognize and deal with it.

"Mutually Assured Survival"--A Policy We Can All Live With

Abstract:

We now live in a world where distance no longer insulates us from each other in times of conflict. The advancement of nuclear, cyber, and biological weaponry technology and the ravages of war fought with them requires a new policy to address international conflicts—Mutually Assured Survival. A policy which can be fashioned from the best of our humanity working in concert with our Divinity, while perceiving it in our opponents, to ensure peace and survival.

Ego--Our Survival Energy

Abstract:

Our ego plays an extremely important role in our life—survival. Its single purpose is to ensure our daily and mortal survival. Unlike what has often been written or said, it can exert a positive, as well as negative impact upon our lives, including the connection between our humanity and Divinity. Understanding its true purpose and potential for good can allow us to fully live and experience the best of what we and life have to offer—humanly and spiritually.

The 3 Components of Our Ego Energy

Abstract

Our ego energy tremendously and consistently impacts our daily lives. Whether we are interacting with people or loved ones, working to achieve with our abilities, dealing with stress, and many other areas of life, it is at work. Unfortunately, our understanding has often been limited to viewing it as the amount of influence we are willing to exert in our lives. This energy is more diverse and we must grow in our understanding of it to appreciate its true…

Being Thankful for Our Service!

 

Abstract

We have so much to be thankful for is often a sentiment that is not fully recognized by ourselves. The main focus is often on “gifts” we have received such as family, health, employment, nature, or talents. But what about the gift of service we provide to others and ultimately ourselves? Providing an opportunity to help others receive what they need, grow in ways we may need to grow, and being the Love, Life and Energy—God Is, within our…

"To BE or not to BE?"

Abstract

Shakespeare poses a provocative question—“to be or not to be?”—within the opening to Hamlet’s soliloquy. A choice between the darker challenges of life or the unknown freedoms of death. But is that the question we must really ask ourselves? Or is the real question “to BE or not to BE?” A question asking if we are choosing, often unknowingly, a life-full (to BE) or a life-less (not to BE) existence, in the way we go about living our lives—here and now.…

Is Higher Ego Flexibility Damaging Your Relationships?

Abstract

Ego Flexibility impacts the amount of access we give others to impact our mind with their thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, values and so on. People with Higher Ego Flexibility provide lots of access and want others to think for them, believing the truth resides in others. We can often live in the role of “Child”, “Cultist”, “Loyalist” or “Puppet” within relationships. This…

Is Lower Ego Flexibility Damaging Your Relationships?

Is Lower Ego Flexibility Damaging Your Relationships?

Lower ego flexibility within one’s ego energy often has a destructive impact upon relationships—particularly closer ones involving family members such as spouses, partners and children. These are the people who live 24/7 with them and get no break from them. A person with lower ego flexibility thinks in a rigid, inflexible manner. They believe they “own” the truth and often perceive their task as getting others to know their truth…

Is Lower Ego Power Damaging Your Relationships?

Is Lower Ego Power Damaging Your Relationships?

This article focuses on lower ego power energy and its impact on relationships. Lower ego power weakens one’s ability to participate fully and meaningfully in significant relationships occurring in our lives—spouse/partner, parents, children, siblings, friends and ourselves. It often promotes relationships in which we are passive, submissive, and overly dependent upon others. The needs of others become far more important than our own.…

Is Higher Ego Power Damaging Your Relationships?

Is Higher Ego Power Damaging Your Relationships?

Lots of research has shown that a very important influence on wellness and the quality of our lives involves the relationships we experience. Relationships with our parents, children, spouse/partner, friends, co-workers, as well as with ourselves are a barometer as to how well things are going in our life –or not. The more our ego energy is imbalanced, the greater the chance that what we manifest within relationships is unhelpful and…

The Most Important Relationship

The Most Important Relationship

As we walk along the path of our lives we experience many relationships. These include relationships with our parents, siblings, spouse/partner, children, friends, co-workers, teachers, and “God”.

God is not a "Who!"

God is not a “Who!”

What a strange title for an article. Strange for many because it acknowledges the obvious—God is not human. Strange because the thought is embedded in many of the religious teachings we have encountered over the years—God exists within the spiritual realm. Strange because we never refer to God in human terms—as having thoughts, experiencing feelings, having preferences, or taking action. Wait, Wait, Wait! There’s a problem with the last one and it’s also linked to…

From Challenged to Fully Enabled

We have all had the opportunity to witness and be inspired by stories of people encountering significant personal challenges in their lives and came to overcome them. Some were born with a disability impacting their ability to see, hear, attend, read or learn. Some encountered life events which tore them apart physically or emotionally due to neglect, abuse or a life-threatening event. Some have succumbed to the influence of drugs or alcohol to create distance from their pain and misery.…
