How To Overcome Ego


As a personal empowerment specialist, I am continually working to reduce complex concepts to their lowest common denominator, to make them useable. Ego is one of those complex concepts which I believe I have finally reduced, to the best of my knowledge, to this sacred place of simplicity. Perhaps I will discover how to reduce it further, later, at least now . . . the concept is useable.

You fear ego because you don’t understand it. In understanding ego, you have the keys to undo it,

Distinguishing between the Dark and the Light Forces

Traditional religion speaks of God and the Devil as the opposing forces of good and evil. While I believe there is opposition in all things in this dualistic world in which we live, I prefer to use the terms Dark and Light. The dark forces are influences that cause harm and chaos while the Light Forces create good for individuals and mankind.

Belief and Relationships

Blogpost.7.13.12 .Belief and Relationships?

Belief is simply a thought we think over and over until it becomes a belief. When we mature and see things more clearly, we realize that many of our beliefs are actually misinterpretations of an event or person. Or they may be someone else’s beliefs programmed into us when we were too young to decide if they were helpful or harmful, and we haven’t examined them since to see if we want to keep or reject them. These beliefs affect our relationships.

When you do everything right and things still go wrong

The legend of the Phoenix Bird has been around for centuries with several variations of the legend and the bird.

The basic version: The Phoenix Bird is a supernatural creature that lives for 1,000 years, then builds its own funeral pyre and throws itself into the flames. As it dies, it is reborn anew and rises from the ashes to live another 1,000 years.

Symbolically the Phoenix is a metaphor for our lives.

Hold Onto Ariadne's Thread

In Greek Mythology the King of Crete sent Theseus through the labyrinth to kill or be killed by the Minotaur. The King's daughter, Ariadine, fell in love with Theseus and to ensure his safety, gave him a thread which he let unwind on his way into the labyrinth. After he slew the Minotaur, he traced the thread out of the layrinth to safety.

When Good Men Do Something...

“All it takes for evil to flourish is for good men [and women] to do nothing,” Edmund Burke said. How true. So when good men do something it is worth writing about.

Today I met such a man. Dan Long is spending his waking hours developing a program for teens to help those succeed who otherwise would not know how. He knows a student doesn’t need a high IQ to succeed...what he needs is creative imagination. Dan knows this for certain for his creativity made him the businessman of the year in Idaho in 2008.

Which Wolf Will Take Over Your Personality?

Often I ponder my life, the people and situations I've encountered . I often think of the Ponzi scheme I lost my life savings in, I think of the victims and the perpetrators. I notice how the perpetrators, pure takers, are reaping the benefits of their taking. They had a flash of prosperity, but like the bright flash that a light bulb emits just before it burns out and becomes dark; they, too had their flash which is now gone, and they live in the darkness of a prison cell with other dark souls.

Highlights of Sun Valley Wellness Festival


There is a transformation in progress, not only on the earth but also in every area of our lives. Those with spiritual or metaphysical backgrounds are acutely aware of this transformation in progress, and know it can be difficult if we don’t understand it and know how to deal with it in a healthy manner. Nearly all the speakers at the festival were in some way helping people better understand and deal with these trying but ultimately productive times unscathed.

Giving at it's Best

Depressed with the thoughts of observing the takers I have just blogged about, I think of the givers I've known and my spirits are again enlivened, especially as I think about my niece Kari and the miraculous manner in which she secured a long lost precious family radio for her mother who had wanted it so badly she considered stealing it when the owner would not give it up for any amount of money. The full story is in Rising from Ashes in the chapter called Old Radio.

Meet the Real Glen Morshower (plays Aaron Pierce in the TV drama 24)

In my profession as a writer I meet the most amazing people and have the opportunity to interact with, and learn from them. Such was the case when I was in Los Angeles at a training seminar recently and met Glenn Morshower. I knew little about him except that he played Aaron Pierce in the popular TV drama series "24". From the role he plays in "24" it would be hard to see him as a stand up comic, one with a very spiritual message. However, that is the real Glenn Morshower, a comic with a message.
