Transformation is active in my life and I accept powerful change to continue. I grow daily into greater awareness and acceptance of my wholeness and true nature. I am like the caterpillar changing into a butterfly, allowing my true Self to emerge.

Greetings from the Editor:


Today is my wedding anniversary of 40 years. Yes, I said 40 years. My husband and I married young, ages 19 and 20. We began a traditional unaware relationship, yet over time learned to create a conscious, rewarding partnership.

Two important events shaped my life and impacted the marriage. I signed up for a marriage and family therapy course in 1977 while working on my master’s degree in counseling. Doors opened for an intense inner journey of study. Then in 1979, while living in Thibodaux, LA for a short time (my husband took a job transfer), I applied for and was hired to teach a student development course at the small university in the town. Part of the curriculum was building self-esteem, using L.S. Barksdale’s materials. I benefited from the ideas as much and probably more than the college freshmen. Read more in my lead article.

Fortunate Blessings,



Personal Growth

Married 40 Years

By Suzanne E. Harrill

Recently, my husband I were visiting my brother-in-law. When there was a lull in the conversation I said, "Guess what? We are soon to be married for 40 years!" Then I reached over, hugged and kissed my husband and said, "And we still like each other." My brother-in-law laughed and said, "Still? I’d say finally." We three laughed. Then he proceeded to say that he hasn’t seen a couple as different as we are stay together and find such peace and harmony. I was immediately reminded of earlier times when things, were not so. How did we move to a place of compatibility and acceptance for each other’s differences so that most of the time now our personalities blend well?

Questions & Answers

Question: The person I am in relationship with has a problem with telling the truth. Even when it would make no difference, my partner will change the facts sometimes. Integrity and being a person of my word is one of my top values, but not so with my partner, who thinks I overreact. We have gone around and around with this and I need more information.

Transforming Victimization: True Stories #12

Adoption: Lessons in Love and Understanding

By Diane Langley

Perfectly imperfect…….I try to remember that phrase when challenges spring up, but sometimes that’s hard, really hard. Of course, our children give us the greatest opportunity to learn this lesson—some more than others.

All I can ever remember wanting to be when I grew up was a mother. I was going to do a better job than I felt my mother had, though with the years I realized that she didn’t do such a bad job and that whatever the quality of the job, she did the best that she could. In those years, I held the conviction that having a child and being the mother of a successful child only required love. That’s true, but I now have some caveats to that statement. What I didn’t understand was that love encompasses lots and lots of territory. For me the most difficult aspect of love was accepting that sometimes it means letting go and letting that child that you love fail, and fail miserably by almost any standards. And further that there might not be a quick turnaround—it might take years and years, or even a lifetime or two...

The Ten Essential Requirements For Asset Management

by Michael Levy

How good are you at managing your assets? Over the past few years, I have received a few invitations to attend seminars at high-class restaurants. Naturally, I have attend a few and enjoyed a nice meal and at the same time listened to expert financial managers teach me how to take care of my assets.

Most of the speakers are overweight and do not seem to be in the best of health. The audiences are mostly elderly retired people and most of them appear to be on medications, very few seem to be fit and healthy. It appears that many peoples wholeness affluence has turned into unwholesome effluence, when it comes to authentic, serene mind & body asset management....

Personal Transformation

The Universe as a Hologram

by Michael Talbot

 Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm? In 1982, a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist  Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science.

Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing. The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein's long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect's findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations...
