What do you think?
Are you Always Becoming?
How would you finish this statement: “I AM . . . “
Are you a product of ‘nurture’ or ‘nature’?
Or, do you believe you are a “spiritual being having a human experience”?
Do you believe in a innate, natural drive to always be growing, toward self-actualization?
Do you have both a “real Self” and a “false Self”, or even multiple Selves?
Or, one Self, mostly, if not solely, a product of genes, heredity, and DNA?
Since a young child, I have had an interest in Psychology – which translates to Study of the Soul, but tends to refer to “personality”. My quest for knowledge in understanding the “I” in “I AM” is as strong as ever. And, I’m not the only one!
For centuries philosophers, theologians, mythologist, spiritual teachers, along with psychologists, have been on a quest for knowledge of Self, in search of the answers to: “Who Am I?” and “Are we Always Becoming?”
Join me and my guests as we explore these two questions. And be inspired by the personal Becoming stories told by guests who share the risks and the challenges, the successes and the letdowns, the joys and the heartaches they experienced while on their own Becoming journey.
EP 043: Dr Lynne - Ending a Relationship From a Place of Love
Ending a intimate relationship does not have to be a extremely, maybe even traumatic, experience! Contary to what our society and culture wants us to believe, it is possible to move through the relationship ending process from a place of love, rather than from a place of fear. Our society has been sending us the message, through media, movies, stories, and music, that it is ‘normal’ to hurt your ex-partner. We have been feed the idea that we have to divorce not only our ex spouse, but the family members you have built a relationship with. That is very sad.
