On this day in 1948, the United Nations adopted a universal set of human
rights that apply to all of us.  

We honor this milestone towards creating a more free and equal world. 

May we find opportunity to embody 
this each day.

As humans, we all recruit hopes, dreams, visualizations, concepts and magical child imagery to generate the sense of actually manifesting what we need to create a better life.  Too frequently left out are the bridges between these elements, which in fact are themselves the true rewards.

In a time of information overload – much of it contradictory or false, and coming at us at high speed – we need markers for identifying what is real for ourselves.

What we call intuition or insight – an “ah-hah” – is simply when the body, brain and mind all share the same reality.

What we call tension is actually chronic muscle contraction which results from thinking one way and feeling another.

…is a simple way to describe getting what you want, but each step has at least one slippery slope or stumbling block.

Integrated Awareness utilizes straightforward inner exploration of each of these three steps – revealing to ourselves the personal obstacles and hurdles before us and allowing the discovery of our own paths beyond them.

Let your body lead the way!

“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now…”  Joni Mitchell

She could have been describing the current social divides we see all around us.  What is mostly shared is what mostly separates us: Fear, blame, helplessness and loss.

What we often forget is that all of us were truly helpless for the first years of our lives and needed the care, support and fix-it of someone bigger and stronger.  But what do we need now?

There’s self, there’s other and there’s other-other. Most of of us believe we know what the first two are. The third may sound a little weird, especially since we each have several of them.

Fancy names like sub- and multiple personalities, semi-autonomous fragments, dissociated aspects, even PTS, etc. have been given to what are actually normal adaptive behaviors. To survive, we do need to rearrange our inner beings frequently and choose which components to reveal in differing circumstances.

It’s traditional and fitting to remember and honor with extra focus each year those who have sacrificed for all of us on this Memorial Holiday – our military services, first responders, individual heroes and societal leaders in every field. May we always do so.

Inspiration is not the exclusive privilege of poets or artists. There is, there has been, there will always be a certain group of people whom inspiration visits. It’s made up of all those who’ve consciously chosen their calling and do their job with love and imagination. It may include doctors, teachers, gardeners – I could list a hundred more professions.

“An Uplifting Path”

The world and the media 
- social and conventional - 
are so filled with messages of alarm that
it is easy to 
feel that we are all swimming upstream and that 
everything else is falling downhill.

We live in unbalanced times – some would say to the point of unsane. Even those who avoid, or at least minimize, exposure to electronic media are powerfully effected by the currents in which we all swim together.

In political and social arenas, correct “posture” means having (or protraying) the right attitude. As individual humans it means upright on our skeletons (whether seated or standing), supported by our centers and balanced in our perspectives.

Persuasion and/or convincing will seldom produce this result.
