Egolessness: Unconscious Consciousness?

The self-development field is a fascinating place, filled with fascinating individuals.

As lifetime students of the Human Condition, we have always been rather intrigued by the highly diverse paths people take in pursuit of their personal journeys towards enlightenment, self-realization or whatever else it is they seek.

Which brings us to this thing called “Ego.”

HSP Living: How Do You Spell Support?

An inherent part of living with Consciousness is to be able to understand what is going on with both ourselves and others, so we can act with mindfulness and compassion.

Under this general heading, we often face the issue of feeling supported in our endeavors, and how to best be supportive of others.

Of Sensitive Cage Rattling, Holy Cows and Spiritual Zombies

Some random thoughts on the importance of "Rattling People's Cages" and "Poking at Holy Cows" as part of the personal growth process.

I'm a "Cage Rattler." And I've been known to sometimes poke at "Holy Cows." 

I am also a highly sensitive person-- or HSP-- so I tend to approach the process gently, in a manner intended to get people to think more deeply about the closely held beliefs they cling to without question, without their becoming defensive.

Time Management, Work and the Highly Sensitive Person

Thoughts for Self-employed HSPs and other Creative Souls on being organized and making the most of their time—without actual “organizing.”

Although these words were primarily written with the highly sensitive person (HSP) in mind, the ideas presented here could almost certainly be applied to any “creative” or “right brain” types who find it challenging to organize their time in such a way as to be more productive with their…
