Last week I outlined the basic idea of Radical Grieving and how closely it relates to the Radical Forgiveness philosophy. Let’s now look at the assumptions implicit in this way of looking at life and death.
The more technology shrinks and connects our world, the more we are confronted with challenges that we have to deal with, almost on a daily basis. As I watch it all unfold, I will be inspired from time to time, to focus attention on and share with you how my Radical Living Strategies can help all of us meet our challenges with greater ease and compassion. My hope is that these offerings give you the insight you need to create the peaceful, fulfilling life you desire.

There is probably no greater pain of separation than that which we feel at the death of a loved one. We suffer it even more intensely if the death itself is untimely, unexpected or tragic. It is not always about losing people either. The death of a pet can be equally traumatic for some . . .

But even though 2012 is not necessarily a date certain for the dramatic . . .
For as long as we have been on this planet, we have been evolving spiritually. It has not necessarily been a smooth journey. We have gained and lost our spiritual bearings many times and have gone through long dark periods as well as days of enlightenment. But we always keep evolving towards a higher . . .
It is not surprising that we might think we are our bodies! We dress our body, trim it, shave it, bathe it, uplift it, perfume it, beautify it, augment it, adorn it, medicate it, exercise it, feed it and in numerous other ways focus an enormous amount of attention upon it. Given the size . . .
