Evolving

"I experience my life evolving into greater harmony, with deeper meaning and purpose. Everything I think, feel, and do gives me the opportunity to explore deeper to discover ways to evolve my consciousness. Today, I notice the unity of all life and feel my place in it."

A Special Poem

Martha has been incarcerated for 11 years in a Texas Prison. I have been writing her for five years, encouraging her to heal and learn and grow. One of Marthaís goals was to pass the GED Test for High School Equivalency. After many attempts, she finally passed. In one of her letters to me expressing her excitement, Martha enclosed a poem she had written. I want to share it with you, as it strikes a note within me of universal appeal.

Fortunate Blessings,

Suzanne

Awakening the Artist Within
and Learning to Paint with a Full Palette of Colors

By Suzanne E. Harrill

One way to explain the human experience is through the metaphor of color. Imagine each of us is an artist at birth and given a palette of rainbow colors with which to paint our individual lives. Each one of us starts out using the color preferences of the family and society born into, therefore, repeating the conditioning. Some learn early to move beyond the limited palette and use unfamiliar colors to explore the rainbow of color possibilities. Those who prefer to paint with the same colors over and over and to limit the palette eventually find life has a corrective measure.

11 Steps to Healthy Living

By Charles Lightwalker

 1. Start a journal. Starting a journal is a wonderful way to involve your creative side, to explore your ideas and to put to work your new aims and see the progress. Make this journal positive so that you can read it and uplift yourself. Observe how you express yourself. Writing is a way of looking at your self through an outside view - what have you noticed about yourself as you read past journal entries? Let your mind be free to open up to new levels as you write. Writing can be a very freeing experience.

 2. Give yourself time for reflection each day...

Three Questions That Can Eliminate Misunderstanding

by Rob Pennington, Ph.D.
Educational Psychologist, Resource International

Getting others to look at things from our point of view can be challenging, to say the least.  Marriages end in divorce, business partnerships end up in court, teams become dysfunctional, potential sales are lost, all because of hair trigger, unconscious habits in how we handle disagreements with each other. We have to be better.  Each one of us, in every relationship, has to learn how to be more respectful in how we respond, as soon as we realize that someone is thinking differently than we do. 

But more than that, we could actually eliminate the majority of disagreement in our lives. It wonít be difficult because the majority of the time a disagreement doesnít really exist Ė itís a misunderstanding!  We all know this. We just forget it in the middle of a conflict.  We think we are right, they are wrong and itís our job to prove to them they are wrong.  And when are they grateful?  Never.  But we still do it all the time.  Itís a habit....
