There is a new phrase rolling off of people’s tongues these days (I’ve used it many times myself) that I don’t think many people have really thought about.
Okay, time for truth in packaging. I am writing this newsletter because I need to process it for use in my own life. Like so many others during this time of pandemic, I have spent (frittered away is more like it) way too many hours on social media.
Shortly after my last newsletter was published, I had an interesting“virtual” conversation with an individual that just couldn’t understand how anyone could not worry about Covid-19 and all of its repercussions.
Well, this has certainly been an interesting month. Almost six weeks ago I had an idea for the April newsletter and actually started writing it ... several times.
I must say that it has been a very interesting month. Aside from the usual changing planetary aspects and another Mercury Retrograde (total disaster that day, but that is another story),
I have always enjoyed reading about the etymology—the origin—of words in the English language as they are traced back through the centuries to earlier words in various (usually European) languages, often to Latin or Greek roots.
While driving to work one morning several months ago, my “guys” (my Spirit Guides) gave me a somewhat vague outline of possible titles for several newsletters up through the beginning of 2020.
As we near the end of 2019, around the world we seem to be surrounded by more diversity of opinion than ever before, and most of it appears to be accompanied by judgment.
So, Which Is It?© How many times have you heard someone say “I’ll believe it when I see it!” This is one of those things I wish I had a nickel (okay, a dollar with inflation) for every time I’ve heard it. And it always seems to be expressed in the same tone of [...]
Patience—Part II© Last month's newsletter, “Patience – Part I,” noted that Patience is a learned skill requiring practice and refinement over time. So, how does one learn Patience? The answer is really quite simple if not so easy to accomplish. Patience is learned by “Going with the Flow,” which is the essence of Patience. That newsletter [...]
I know that I have written about this before, but there is obviously a major lesson I have yet to learn, so I’m going to take yet another stab at it. I have the calendar on my computer set up to let me know that I need to get started on next month’s newsletter if I haven’t done so already.
I had some interesting conversations this past month in response to my newsletter series on “Habits” (see Habits—Part I, and Habits—Part II). The point of contention was my statement that changing habits is “not a matter of willpower.”
In last month’s newsletter, Habits - Part I, I noted that habits are behaviors to which we often give little attention because they require relatively little conscious thought (automatic information processing).
Habits – Part I© So much has been written by so many regarding the topic of “Habits.” We all have a great deal of experience with them, so why spend the time writing (or especially reading!) yet one more essay on the subject? Well, my Guides insisted that I consider it, and I actually [...]
Looking At What You Don’t Want To See© Maitreya (channeled by Margaret McElroy) repeatedly speaks of the need to detach from trapped (unused) energy. It is “trapped” because we (metaphorically) “push it down” or try to “run away from it.” Essentially, it is “Looking At What You Don’t Want To See” and then taking [...]
