Thursday, July 3rd, 2015 Focus: Contact with the natural environment is powerfully restorative to my well-being.

Research gives strong support to something we know from our own experience: contact with the natural environment can be powerfully restorative to our well-being. Prisoners who can look out of their cells get sick less often, and patients in hospitals recover more quickly when their view is of greenery rather than concrete.

In developing a context that supports us in working for our world, we need to include contact with nature. There is something more fundamental here than the feel-good factor of pleasant scenery. Particularly for those living in cities, it is easy to lose touch with the biological reality that we arise out of nature and are part of it.

While indigenous peoples recognize that our very survival depends on the healthy functioning of the natural world, it is only recently that we’ve gained a scientific understanding of how true this really is. When we carry within us a deep appreciation of how our life is sustained by other living beings, we strengthen our desire to give back.

Thursday, June 18th, 2015 Focus: I acknowledge that I can’t control the actions of others.

I know that it’s always easier to complain and blame someone else (haven’t we all done it?) than to admit that we are the ones who need to change. If one of your co-workers aggravates you “to no end”, of course one solution is to quit your job, but then, the next job may have someone who aggravates you even more. The solution probably lies in looking at what really aggravates you and asking yourself two things: Is it that important? and Why does it aggravate me so much?

Answering these two questions truthfully will greatly alleviate the pressure. The idea is to search for things you can do… whether it is in changing your attitude, your expectations, your actions, your thoughts, your job, your whatever… This is not about blame and condemnation — either of yourself or the other persons involved.

If you’ve decided that someone’s behavior bothers you, then it will. So why not decide that you can handle it? And then see what can be done? We can’t control the actions of others. However, since our own actions and thoughts are in our own jurisdiction, that’s where we can make a difference.

Sunday, February 15th, 2015 Focus: I take a closer look at what I think, say, and do.

Most of us long for relationships in which we are loved and accepted just the way we are. Our hearts’ desire is to give and receive love in relationships that make us feel that even if others disagree with what we do or say, they still love us. They accept us. They appreciate our contributions to the world.

While it would be wonderful to have these types of relationships with all people, we know that that’s hard to do. We can, however, have them with some others, but only when we first have them with ourselves — and, ironically, this is often the hardest relationship of all.

Despite what your subconscious may be telling you, you can have love with no limits. The key is to unconditionally love yourself first. Do you love yourself? You may think you do, but do you really? There’s only one way to find out — by taking a closer look at what you think, say, and do. You may not like some of what you find, but if you’re serious about really loving yourself, you can use this insight to do some positive inner work.

Friday, January 23rd, 2015 Focus: I do my best to understand rather than condemn.

There are times when our trust is forsaken or broken. However, assigning blame is useless. Trust is based on human nature and nothing about humanity is yet perfect.

If we do our best to understand rather than condemn, mistrust becomes nothing more than misunderstanding. And once you understand, your choices become clear and your life becomes balanced.

Trust offers you only two paths: If you distrust, you open yourself to confusion, turmoil and doubt. If you trust you receive trust, understanding and clarity in return. The choice is yours.

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015 Focus: What I feel right now is not the whole me.

The next time you feel like crap, just remember that what you feel right now is not the whole you. What people see right now is not the whole you. This moment will only define and defeat you if you let it. So don’t.

I am not dismissing how you feel and what you think in the present moment. Being present and aware of your thoughts and feelings is crucial for happiness as well. But your whole world expands when you stop confining yourself to these drifting, passing mental mutterings. They come and go, but they are not entirely what you are or all that you have to offer. Not in the least.

If you accept and embrace this way of thinking — this “I extend past the fleeting, corporal now” — it makes it so much easier to accept yourself. If you make a mistake, you can just brush it off and move on. You might have made that mistake, but that mistake does not make you.
