ISIS is creating a lot of anxiety around the world and Heads of States everywhere are wringing their hands about what to do. Thousands of tons of smart bombs have been dropped on them but everyone knows that bombing will change little. It has been shown in the past that prayer does work, so I . . .
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.
Since most of the seeds for what is to unfold in the coming year were planted in the year just passed, it seems equally important to review the one we are leaving as envisioning the one we are about to move into.
The big event for me, which demanded most of our time and attention last . . .
In her song “What I need,” Karen Taylor-Good sings, “You don’t always get what you want, you get what you need.”
This is a lesson that the Republican Party is having to learn right now and they don’t like it one little bit. Let me explain.
The leaders of the GOP clearly don’t want Donald Trump . . .
The mad rush is upon us yet again and the pressure to spend, spend, spend on gifts for all and sundry is unrelenting. So many decisions to be made, like who do we need to buy for, and what would be an acceptable gift? How much should we spend on this person or that? Do . . .
In the aftermath of such terrible, gut-wrenching events as we witnessed in Paris last Friday, I am, as always in such situations, somewhat loathe to weigh in with a Radical Forgiveness viewpoint lest people see it as an attempt to minimize or gloss over what was obviously a cowardly and thoroughly despicable act.
Barbaric, perverted and . . .
Funny how things work out.
JoAnn and I spent last weekend in London doing our final workshop for 2015. It was the one-day, Magic of Radical Forgiveness Workshop. That was on Saturday.
JoAnn’s flight back to Atlanta from London Heathrow being on Monday, we decided to stay over Saturday and Sunday night. (I am remaining here for . . .
My dear teenage granddaughter, Rosie, delights in making fun of me for using a pendulum to get answers to questions. She thinks I’m weird.
She should have been with me yesterday when JoAnn and I visited the Richard III Exhibit in Leicester. (We live in a village quite close to that city.)
Rosie would have been shocked . . .
Each year at around this time I raise the topic of family holidays and their propensity for arousing strong negative emotions.
In spite of our best efforts to be civil and polite, undercurrents of old rivalries between siblings and unresolved issues with parents have a way of bleeding into the feigned holiday revelry we all try . . .
Today I am leaving for Switzerland to do a Radical Self-Forgiveness and Self-Acceptance Workshop with my dear friend Margrit Hardegger. I mentioned her in last week’s blog.
You may recall she was one of the ‘angels-on-the-ground’ who make it possible to for me to spread the word about Radical Forgiveness and the other Radical Living Strategies . . .
We arrived in Moscow on my 74th birthday, September 30th, to do a free evening workshop, a two-day workshop that had attracted 190 people, and a ten day training for 32 would-be Radical Living Coaches. This we have just completed and will be on our way back to our flat in England tomorrow, tired but . . .
