Keep New Dimensions Rippling Out

This month you’ll be hearing from David Bedrick who, in his book, makes the provocative statement that “There is no symptom that belongs only to the individual, whether that symptom is emotional, spiritual, physical, social, or financial. . . . When we don’t consider this larger web, we are more likely to feel shame about our suffering and our inability to heal our psychological symptoms. In essence, the individual may believe that their difficulty is only about them – their limits, pathologies, deficiencies, and failures.” In our dialogue with David, he tells us that these issues are not divorced from

Editor’s Desk: Conquering the Demon Called Clutter

Recently I was asked to be part of a beta-test of a time management program, headed up by a friend of mine. It was easy for me to say yes to her 8-week program because I’m always feeling the effects of too much to do in too little time. There was no doubt in my mind that I could use some help in scheduling my time more effectively. In the third week the assignment was that we consider the following questions: What’s a big recurring challenge you keep encountering with your time? What is the most elusive goal you would

Wildness in a Modern Age – The Reintroduction of Wolves to the Landscape with Brenda Peterson

There are some successful programs to reintroduce wild wolves into their natural habitat in the U.S. This keystone species recovery activity is a long game and there remains much opposition to this movement, at least some of which stems from our mythological view of wolves as standing for all that is vicious, dangerous, and savage. Peterson outlines the uphill battle that this endangered species is undergoing. She shares many stories, including her experience of the capturing, transferring, and release of a wolf pack into the wild. She reminds us that Jacques Cousteau once said that people protect what they love,

Viewing Human History As A Spiritual Epic with Robert Atkinson, Ph.D.

Robert Atkinson offers a deeply thoughtful view of conscious evolution drawn from the continuous wisdom of the world’s religions. He inspires hope as he traces love’s unifying power throughout history, and encourages us not to be distracted by seeming setbacks. This big picture view of human progress points to peaceful unity as our ultimate destination. How we get there depends on the stories we live by and the action we take. He says, “Love is the spiritual activism of our time.” Atkinson’s research shows that all the world’s religions are like branches of the same sacred tree, revealing the metaphor:

Spotlight: Gratitude – The Key to a Meaningful Life

Benedictine monk and world-renowned author Brother David Steindl-Rast says, “If you really understand this attitude of gratefulness, every moment gives you a unique opportunity.

How do your emotions hold you back from connecting to your loved ones, your work, and your life with renewed vitality, joy, and freedom? How is gratefulness the key to all the attitudes that all the great traditions have promoted? The answers to these and many other questions

Up Until Now

“Up until now” is one of my most favorite phrases. Mary Morrissey reminds us that our destiny isn’t determined by our history. She tells us that it is our intentions that can be a most dynamic guide. Intention is the first creation. As Morrissey says, “We create in mind a thought-form of what we’d like to be experiencing. Without that thought-form, all the creative energy in the universe can’t form itself into a form that isn’t made. We are obliged, then, to create the ‘first creation,’ and that’s the one in mind . . . How you feel about the
