Getting Outside The Box Of Cultural Conditioning

Last week, about a half hour after I sent out my article on how my teen athlete's back pain got completely relieved, I received an email from a reader telling me that he does not appreciate the religious content of my material.  The reader wrote, "I do not appreciate the religious content of this material.  I am sure that others do, but it is not what I am interested in reading...I am not comfortable with your philosophy/approach." Because I'm sure he's not alone in his view and in order to clarify where I'm coming from (because my view CAN be confusing and easily misunderstood at times, particularly because we all have preconceived … [Read more...]

Unleash the Power of Your Dreams

Besides paying attention to your intuition and inner nudges, you can pay attention to your dreams and by doing so, unleash the power of your dreams (which will go a long way toward helping you solve your and your family's problems and fulfill your higher purpose). This is because dreams are one of several ways the Divine uses to communicate with us, and if we pay attention we will gain the perspective and the assistance of the Divine. However, not many people remember their dreams and not long ago a reader of my articles emailed, asking me what to do so that he could remember his dreams. "Can you give me some insight into dreaming? I do … [Read more...]

Your Higher Purpose – To Help Create A World That Works For Everyone

For more than two decades now I've been driven to find and fulfill my higher life purpose.  By "higher" I mean not just having a job, advancing a career and being a good parent but fulfilling something deeper that tugged at me that I knew very little about, something that I felt I wasn't even connected to yet. How was I to know what that higher purpose was? That's like asking what's your soul's potential. You don't know until you really get into it. So in early 2001 I attended a 5-day Soul Recognition workshop to help me discover my higher life purpose.  One of the things I learned there was that I would write a "simple children's book" … [Read more...]

Parenting In Times of Crisis and Chaos

We are on the brink of much change on the planet, and it seems that the level of chaos is high right now. Here in the U.S. the federal government is partially shut down at the moment (due to Congress’ inability to agree on the budget and the projection that the U.S. Treasury will run out of money on October 17th). The level of fear is high and I see all around me—at the gasoline station, the store, and in families—that many people are on the brink of losing it. How do you keep your sanity and be a supportive, effective parent during such crazy times? I am not afraid of the times we are in and in fact, my philosophy about what’s happening … [Read more...]

How Do You Find Your Higher Purpose?

In last week's article I wrote about how many of society's problems (including the problem of illegal drugs being trafficked to the teenagers in our neighborhoods) will be resolved by individuals who connect with their (divine, inner) power, and fulfill their "Higher Purpose." But how do you find your higher purpose and how do you know when you're on the path of your higher purpose, as opposed to just going through your "normal" operating state? How do you know you're actually doing your higher purpose, as opposed to just going through your "default" way of being, going through the motions of your job or career? Over the course of a few … [Read more...]
