Greetings from the Editor:

The tradition of exchanging Christmas cards helps as a reminder of the deeper meaning. Christmas cards remind me of the spirit behind the holiday. Opening each one brightens my mood and brings a moment of connectedness to friends, many of which I may never see again in person. I enjoy the many creative ways artists and poets express the meaning of the season.

Are you curious about the timing of when I send this newsletter to you? The birthday of The Innerwords Messenger was September 12, 2003, so the 12th is my target launching day each month.  

Fortunate blessings,


Self Awareness

The Compassionate Choice

by Chelle Thompson               

In a world that is shifting, everything around us is being redefined. Through the challenges in my life, I've learned that maintaining a loving arena of Accountability creates a cornerstone for change. It's also the gift that keeps on giving — for, when individuals actually rise to the occasion and accept responsibility for their actions, they then reflect a high level of consciousness that is a beautiful gift in return.

Spiritual Growth

Conflict and Spirituality

By: J Patrick Ware MD   

I was recently asked to share some reflections on the nature of conflict and spirituality. The following are some of those thoughts...

If the absence of conflict is peace, then one could reasonably imagine that any entity which encourages or enhances peace may reduce or eliminate conflict. In any argument, if common ground can be developed between the opposing parties, the original investment in the issues of contention usually fade – the clear basis of negotiation/arbitration.....
