From Max Highstein: "To live on Earth is to have wounds. We can live hurt for a long, long time, until we come to a time and place where it’s safe to heal. Once we’re ready, life often conspires to bring us events designed to get our attention! Dealing with fear, anger, and sadness that has accumulated inside isn’t an appealing prospect. But neither is carrying it forward through life. And so the season for healing begins, and we’re called to heed our inner needs, often at the same time as we go about our daily business."
An extraordinarily helpful attribute, if you’re on a path of healing and growth, is self-honesty. It’s also one of the most difficult. In fact, it’s nearly impossible, especially at first, to look at ourselves honestly.

So why is that? Doesn’t it seem like human beings, with the intellect to build computers, compose symphonies and perform microsurgery, would be able to think clearly about ourselves?

If you listen to certain spiritual teachers, particularly from the east, you’ll eventually hear about how important it is to break free from the hold of your ego in order to reach God consciousness…
Why I Like AA And Other 12-Step Programs
Although I’ve never been a member of AA, the 12-Step program called Alcoholics Anonymous, I’ve got opinions about it!
Sensitive or Crazy
The other day one of my Facebook friends posted something that really caught my attention. She said she was puzzled by so many of her colleagues talking about needing to be grounded so as not to pick up negative energy from their clients. She posited that either there was something seriously wrong with her for not having any such experience, or her colleagues were really weird…
