Q & A Interview

Autumn 2015

Feelings

"My feelings are not right or wrong. I understand feelings are simply part of my inner guidance system. They give me feedback on thoughts and reactions to my daily experiences and encounters with others. I am learning to put words to what Iím feelings which helps me identify thoughts and beliefs behind the feelings. I acknowledge all my feelings. I always tell myself the truth about what I am feeling."

Greetings from the Editor:

Fall Colors

I just returned from a week of plein air painting with an artist Steve Quiller in Creed Colorado. This tiny mountain town is full of aspen trees turning beautiful oranges, yellows, and occasional reds against the backdrop of tall dark green evergreens. What an inspiration to see this beauty and attempt to capture a moment in time in a watercolor painting. In the silence of painting, sitting on a mountainside, I experienced many times the feeling of being at one with all the Earth. May you be blessed to view leaves changing color this fall and pause to experience the beauty and calm of this beautiful planet.

Fortunate Blessings,

Suzanne

   

 


Spiritual Growth

Oneness and Unity Consciousness

By Suzanne Harrill

We hear the term oneness often these days. What exactly does this mean? In simple terms it means an understanding, knowing, and feeling of the unity of all life. We each experience oneness as a living, breathing, and thinking human being. The cooperation between the cells, organs, and systems of the body work as one unit in order to support the greater whole to live. Even when ill, aging, or not experiencing the same degree of functioning as in earlier times, we work as one individual. We are still a whole, complete, living, breathing human being capable of living life, making choices about how to live each day, what values to embrace, how to heal and grow, or how to take the next step in striving towards our goals...

Stages of Moral Development
According to Piaget and Kolhberg

by Sister Carmelita
(with Suzanne's comments)

The spiritual life passes through definite developmental stages. Not many people reach the highest state: that of fully internalizing moral principles. These stages are not easy to describe precisely. Each reflects a combination of ideas, attitudes, and decisions that represent a portion of the broad spectrum of spiritual growth. When working to raise the level of moral development in yourself or another, begin to work with information that is one step ahead of where the person is operating at the present time.

Self-Growth

Prove It to Yourself Instead of Wanting Approval from Others

By Denise O’Doherty, LPC, LMFT, MSN, LCDC, RN

The more we want approval from others, the less we get it. What we need we need to learn to give to ourselves. Why? Because living a life that is not you in order to gain approval leads to anger, resentment, and misery over time. Over pleasing others can literally make you ill. Focus on your life, build on what is working; learn where your passions lie so you can create a life that feels successful to you. Your confidence, peace of mind, health and happiness are what matters. Do it for you. Ironically, it is your success and happiness that you do for yourself that attracts others’ acknowledgement and approval...

Personal Growth

The Power Of Putting Yourself First

By Ute Lawrence

A lot of us have a problem with the wording Extreme Self-Care. To some, it means an act of self-centeredness, being self-serving, in short being a jerk, always looking out for number one. However, what it really means is that in order to be more helpful and compassionate toward others we need to be strong ourselves. When we are flying, we are told that in case of an emergency we need to put the oxygen mask on ourselves first. Extreme Self-Care is about looking at every aspect of YOU and making step-by-step improvements until you reach your own goals in the areas that need your attention. Self-care is about making choices on how you work best and living by what you treasure. Self-care is about aligning your value system with your internal and external environments.

Inspirational

The Polished Stone

By Jacqueline M. Shuler

The current flows rapidly in swirls and eddies down the river. At the bottom are stones, which become more and more rounded and polished by the water flow as the years go by. In contrast, the stones at the bottom of a stagnant pool remain craggy and soon become covered with moss.

We choose, before we take on a human body in this life, the lessons we would like to learn. No matter how difficult and painful, they create opportunities for true spiritual growth. We can choose a life in a “river”, where our rough edges will be worn off by the daily passage of events. We can also choose a life in a “pond”, where there are few, if any, difficult circumstances that impact our spirits...
