9 Hints For Coping With Change
By Gordon Rosenberg
This is a time of rapid change on this planet. We are all changing– faster than you may realize or like. This change may be causing considerable stress and possible disruption in your life. I offer you this list of reasons for change and hints on how to deal with the stress it’s causing you. (See link at bottom for more discussion on each of these suggestions.)

I Love You But I’m Not “In Love” With You
By Gina Hardy
Ouch…not “In Love”?
Did you wince at the title of this blog? I did when I typed the words. The effects ricocheted around my body like the ball on a pinball machine and touched memories of times when I have felt this about people I have dated and times when exes have felt it about me.
This article is not about answers to why we love and then we don’t, because only the Universe can know such secrets. It is merely an exploration of where you maybe at right now with someone you love dearly and how in reading this you may find a direction and some comfort as you try to navigate through this tricky dilemma.
How Do You Attract Love?
by Erica Boersma & Dwaine Hartman
Love is the most important ingredient in life. All aspects of life involve love and the only things that separates us from love is getting caught in the common thought forms that exist about love.
Love is much vaster than this ~ it is an experience, a knowing, a connection to another, to the earth, and ultimately to our higher self. To have more love we simply have to break through our limitations.
