Do you know how to embrace the impossible in your life?
Learning How to Embrace the Impossible
Acknowledging the exploration of what we know is possible. Embrace the impossible and bring forth a new experience of what it means to be human.
“Our hearts know that a more beautiful world is possible, but our minds do not know how it’s possible.” ~ Charles Eisenstein
As pioneering spirits, we love to enhance our lives with the exploration of what is possible and learn to embrace the impossible.
Inner-Storms By Kathy Custren
October 30, 2012
In any one lifetime, we encounter a number of experiences where we are tested and strained to survive some manner of extreme energy. Most recently, the deluge delivered to the east coast of the United States with Hurricane Sandy is our current reality in dealing with forces we might consider more than we can handle.
While there is usually a death toll associated with major storms, if we can manage to do a bit of analysis, storms do serve as a testament to our strength and preparedness.
Physically, we have our cycles of highs and lows, which we may label as positive and negative energies.
Keeping Your Sanity In A Time Of Political Unrest
OMTimes Magazine By Susan Schueler
Volatile Mix of Political Unrest and Social Media
Political unrest seems very prevalent. The old adage about not speaking politics at polite gatherings seems to have gone out the window with our social media today.
Regardless if you voted for Trump, think the current travel ban is protecting you from a terrorist attack, believe a wall between Mexico and the U.S. is a complete waste of money, or that Obama had a bigger turn out for his inauguration than Trump; one thing is certain, these are tumultuous times in the United States, and everyone has an opinion!
Conflict Resolution And The Art Of Listening
You would be amazed by how much conflict could be ended simply by the parties listening to each other.
Dealing with Conflict Through Listening
In working as an analyst and as a clinical psychologist, I’ve learned that it’s best to listen, listen, listen, and then listen some more before responding.
This course of action is especially wise whenever the person I am working with is upset. When it comes to conflict resolution strategies, at the top of the list is the art of listening.
Listening does not mean remaining silent while being focused on what you want to say next rather than what the other person is saying.
Standards: Our Word Is Our Bond
By Kathy Custren
It has taken eight (!) years, and news from the world of corporate media yesterday was that the CBS Corporation would not be required to pay the fine associated with the lawsuit stemming from the Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction,” which occurred during the Super Bowl in 2004.
Okay, so that took some time and a bit of legal maneuvering, you say. There are cases that take longer to reconcile, observe, and come back into balance.
The “It’s Too Late For Me” Syndrome
By John Holland
I’m sure that you all know people who’ve reached a certain age, who are stuck in a mind-set that they’ll remain single for the rest of their lives, yes?
All too often, you’ll hear them say “It’s too late, I’m not going to meet anyone now.” The same goes for people who feel that promotion has passed them by and now it’s too late.
This is just another form of being held ransom by your psychological fear. It’s never too late. I love the quote by George Eliot: “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
7 Ways To Change Your Life
OMTimes Magazine By Darlene McPeek
1. Think of your ideal life. Write down a few things about it.
What does it look, taste, feel, smell, sound like?
Where are you? Do you live next to the seaside, mountains, or plains?
Who or what is in your life? Are you a solitary person, in a communal setting, or a family?
What role are you playing in your life? Are you active in deciding your role? If not, who is making that decision?
