The Intro:  Why isn’t this taught in school?

We spend years of our lives – decades even – studying math, science, and history in formal educational settings from the time when we are first learning how to write until the time we graduate college and get our final degree – yet we rarely (if ever) take even a single class on love, relationships, or dealing with our being… Seems a little out of proportion wouldn’t you think?

This is not to say that math, science, or history are not important – each have contributed immensely in their own right – but rather to bring to light the importance of reading, researching and reflecting on the topics of love, relationships, and dealing with your being on your own time.  Changing the curricula and priorities of our educational systems is beyond the intent of this post – changing the way you view, “Personal Development” and “Self-Help” books, for example, is an idea and action that is well within our grasps.

Why is it that when it comes to understanding a subject like math, there’s an easy and direct connection – read books, answer challenging questions, and seek help from educators – but when it comes to understanding a subject like “ourselves” there’s only a, “ya-live-and-ya-learn” policy?   Continue reading

“Remain continuously on a honeymoon.  Go on searching and seeking each other, finding new ways of loving each other, finding new ways of being with each other.  And each person is such an infinite mystery, inexhaustible, unfathomable, that it is not possible that you can ever say, ‘I have known her,’ or, ‘I have known him.’  At the most you can say, ‘I have tried my best, but the mystery remains a mystery.’  In fact the more you know, the more mysterious the other becomes.  Then love is a constant adventure.” ~ Osho, Love, Freedom, Alonenss: The Koan of Relationships

Why Personal Development Time is NOT a Selfish Act.

Why Personal Development Time is NOT a Selfish Act.

…I get it.

Personal development time can feel selfish.

There are a lot of people who could use your help – both in the world and in your immediate circle of influence.

We’re talking about spouses, children, siblings, friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, and all of the less fortunate people in the world who aren’t getting their basic needs met.

And here you are thinking about spending some of that precious time… on yourself?

I mean, your time is limited and there is only so much help that you can provide in an ordinary day so you might as well devote as much of it as possible to others… right?

Sound like the selfless thing to do? Continue reading

“Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don’t be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally know who you are.” ~ Kristin Armstrong
