Heal The Past – Unlock The Future

Heal The Past – Unlock The Future

Back down memory lane. There are times you have to go back before you can go forward.

 

Childhood memories.

 

Jubilation, awkward times and growing pains; some memories fill your heart with warm contentment and others you’d rather forget.

 

A foundational period that molds and shapes your thoughts, behavior and contributes to who you become.

 

You are on the receiving end of your caregiver’s conditioning, thoughts and idiosyncrasies. Implanted in your impressionable mind are inherited beliefs and responses that can become both beneficial and detrimental throughout your life.        

 

Time passes, you get older, and you capitalize on opportunities to shape and form the person you want to be.

How to Take Back Rulership of your World and Happiness in Your Life

How to Take Back Rulership of your World and Happiness in Your Life

Everybody's world and life experiences are colored a little bit differently. This is because we view others and our surroundings through our own unique perceptual filters. Though we all live physically on the same planet, our life experiences vary from person to person.

A Distant Perspective - the impact of change

A Distant Perspective - the impact of change

Cast your mind back, if you will, and consider the greatest technological change in your lifetime.


For most adults I’d suggest it’s the Internet. If you’re a little older, perhaps the cell phone. Older still, maybe computers.


Our lives are our Stories, and technological change has an impact on - freeing or limiting - the context of those stories. It’s a way of marking time, like the rings of a tree.

This Is the Time to Rethink What We Know

This Is the Time to Rethink What We Know

“Summer is a great time to rethink how we are working, how we are learning, how we are consuming our food, our energy, and our time. It’s a great time to rethink our lives and how we are living.”

Kindness

Kindness

Last week our granddaughter graduated from Oregon State University. Linda and I were thrilled. The guest speaker surprised everyone. Instead of the usual encouragement to climb mountains and follow dreams, he suggested that the graduates be kind. “As you grow older,” said this wise and accomplished Turkish businessman who also has founded a four-year university in Turkey, “you will find that your most fulfilling moments will be times of giving or receiving kindness.” I agree. Dreams, aspirations, and successful ventures are not difficult to accomplish compared with developing kindness toward others and toward yourself. When you are encapsulated in a frightened part of your personality – such as anger, jealousy, despair, superiority and entitlement, inferiority and need to please – how can you experience kindness for others or for yourself? How can you experience kindness when a frightened part of your personality wants to kill someone or kill itself?

What is Yours Will Not Go Past You – The Gift of the Bright Red Dot

What is Yours Will Not Go Past You – The Gift of the Bright Red Dot

I remember the first time I heard this statement 30 years ago, and, (as a newly minted magical thinking new ager) I took it to mean that I would “easily and effortlessly” manifest what I want. After all, if I desire something should I not be able to manifest it?

How To Deal With Betrayal

How To Deal With Betrayal

One of the most painful experiences is the feeling of being betrayed, especially by someone you love and trusted.

When your romantic partner cheats on you with someone else.

When you are being taken advantage of or treated unfairly.

Why Surrender Is Not Failure

Why Surrender Is Not Failure

I was thinking this morning about surrender as I perused Faceplant looking for cute baby animal videos ( one of my friends sent me one since Sebastian’s ashes came home yesterday and I wanted to escape by finding more).

Instead I landed on a page that had one but also an argument between two new agey- people having a conversation about ambition and the nature of surrender. One was pushing hard on the other to not give up and “cop out” suggesting (so so nicely) the failure of the other’s ambition to make things a certain way. She was a coach by the way.. “Push harder” she said!

What To Do When Life Seems To Fall Apart

What To Do When Life Seems To Fall Apart

There often comes a moment when the life you are living is too small for who you are seeking to become.

You have simply outgrown your circumstance, whether it’s your job, relationship, or simply who you have been up until now.

This moment is very powerful, but it can also be scary as it requires that you let go of who you have been and trust what is seeking to happen.

Ram Dass on Discovering Your True Work Path (Part 1)

Discovering-Your-True-Work-Path

Many, many years ago, many incarnations back when I was a professor at Harvard, I used to run a course called “Career Decision Making.” It was interesting, because the students at Harvard all had these models of doctor, lawyer, business, graduate school of business, or something like that. We’d start the course by having people fill out a questionnaire and talk about what turned them on the most. It would be interesting that somebody would say, “Well, what I really like is being out in the woods by myself for long periods of time.” Then they would think about their career and they’d think, “Well, now should I be a doctor or a lawyer?”

Try vs. Do – That is the question

 tiko-giorgadze-250881.jpg

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Am I trying to live my greatest life or am I living my greatest life?
  2. Am I trying to change my life or am I changing my life?
  3. Which word do I use more… I’ll try  or I will… do?
  4. What is it I really really want… and will I get it by trying or by doing?

Now Is the Moment to Make Your Voice Heard

Now Is the Moment to Make Your Voice Heard

What do speaking up, showing up, standing up for what you believe in, and giving hugs all have in common?

Turns out a lot.

This past week, I joined thousands of other Alzheimer’s advocates in Washington D.C. for the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Advocacy Forum. These men and women came from all over the country to knock on the doors of their elected officials and let their voices be heard.

When Life Throws You a Curveball, Do This

When Life Throws You a Curveball, Do This

“I am ready to come out of the woods and to shine a light on what’s already happening around kitchen tables.”

That’s what Hillary Clinton said last Friday night at a St. Patrick’s Day gathering in Pennsylvania. Mrs. Clinton said she was ready to come out of the woods after some time away from the spotlight. (A young woman famously posted a photograph of Mrs. Clinton literally walking in the woods days after the election.)

Feminism and Anarchism 2017: Unity Consciousness

Feminism and Anarchism 2017: Unity Consciousness
In the 1970s, I was very active in the feminist movement in Boston, Massachusetts, where I participated in various women’s groups, including the editorial collective of Second Wave magazine. During that time, I wrote an article for Second Wave called “Anarchism: The Feminist Connection,” which subsequently was reprinted in booklet form in New York City, London, England, and Milan, Italy, among other places. It was also included in the anthology Reinventing Anarchy and has been read in Feminist Studies classes at the college and university level for many years. A student at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania recently contacted me for an interview because she was writing her senior thesis on anarcha-feminism in the 1970s and 1980s. While I was speaking with her, it struck me how much interest there still is in these ideas. Then, after Trump was elected, a couple of friends of mine suggested that now might be a good time to reprint the article, with an update. So this is the update, and a link to a newly edited version of “Anarchism: The Feminist Connection” appears at the end of this post.

How To Dynamically Express Yourself

How To Dynamically Express Yourself

Self-expression is a profound gift you give to both yourself and the world. What you have to say matters, but it can be daunting to speak your truth.

All of your fears of what others will think bubble up and stop you from expressing yourself in a dynamic way. When you break through from your fear of self-expression, you set yourself free and you create an outlet to inspire others.
