Sense of Self Method

Happy Earth Day: Spring is always true to its Self-No matter what!

“April showers bring May flowers.” It’s that time again—despite the “crazy” weather of the past two weeks. In the space of a fifteen minute window it hailed hard and fast, followed by sheets of sideways rain, and then the dark grey clouds dissipated, leaving snowy white clouds hanging in a bright blue sky.

David Schnarch on Relating: Thought of the Day | March 14th 2013

“I don’t expect you to agree with me; you weren’t put on the face of the earth to validate and reinforce me. But I want you to love me – and you can’t really do that if you don’t know me. I don’t want your rejection – but I must face that possibility if I’m…

Here we AUM again: Can you see me now?

For the past four months I have participated in a social and active meditation that I look forward to repeating monthly. And the funny thing is each time I take on yet again “doing the AUM Meditation” with a group of 8-14 people, I literally get to know my Self better. I see my Self…

“We hold these truths to be self-evident.”

January 21, 2013 “We hold these truths to be self-evident.” Today is a doubly significant day for it is both the day of the Presidential  Inauguration and it is also Martin Luther King Day.  I happened to turn on the radio at just the right moment for the special coverage of today’s grand event.

Can “I” ever do enough to feel done?

There was a day last week that felt like something was in the air. More than one friend was trying to do “way too much.”  Myself included. And a state of overwhelm came because of it. And a round robin of listening happened that got me thinking: Why so much attachment to getting so much done?…
