Are You A Control Freak?
To finish a project, I need to learn the story of a book titled, A Razor’s Edge, but I don't have time to read the book. I learn that there are two movies made of the book: a 1946 version with Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney, and a 1984 version with Bill Murray and Theresa Russell. I decide to watch the newer version. Newer is better, right?
So Melissa calls all the video stores in our area, which means she makes two phone calls since we live in Maine. Neither store has it. So we drive all the way to Border’s Books & Music in Portland (a 40-minute drive) absolutely sure that they’ll have it. They don’t. They usually do, but not on this day.
Let Me Disappoint You
by Cheryl Richardson
I hate being disappointed. There's nothing worse than getting your hopes up only to have them squelched when something doesn't turn out the way you plan. And that's precisely why I hate to disappoint others. Over the years I've watched myself go on autopilot when someone asks for a favor, saying "yes" when I know in my gut that I'd rather not do it. Or I've suffered, spending too much time trying to come up with a graceful way to let someone down so they wouldn't feel hurt or angry at my "no."
At our core, most of us hate to hurt or disappoint people. As a matter of fact, many avoid it like the plague. Here are a few reasons why:
Identifying True Hunger Vs False Hunger
by Dr. Stephanie Coate
Have you ever actually asked yourself, “Am I really hungry?” before you ate something? Many people are not aware of whether they are eating because they are hungry or because they are responding to some other physical or environmental cue. Some may not even remember how it feels to be truly hungry. We are all born with the innate ability to know when we are hungry. As babies, we naturally got fussy or cried in response to sensations of hunger. We learned to use words as toddlers to ask for food when we needed it. As we grew and became able to obtain food on our own, however, many of us began to eat for reasons other than pure hunger. The more we ate when we were not hungry, the more our natural hunger signals became distorted and difficult to recognize. As a result, false hunger signals emerged and became interpreted as the real thing. The simplest way to learn to distinguish true hunger from false hunger is to begin paying attention to the body’s hunger cues again.
When the body is truly hungry it sends signals to the brain, which then creates specific physical sensations that are interpreted as a need for food. We each feel these physical sensations somewhat differently. Because they can vary from person to person, it is important to learn how your own hunger begins and progresses over time.
You Have the Amazing Ability to Create Coincidence
by Dr. Kirby Surprise
Synchronistic events (SE) are those uncanny coincidences in which the environment seems to be speaking directly to us through events. In my work as a psychologist, I have clients who report radio and television broadcasts, random events of all sorts, and comment on what they are thinking as if something was reading their minds. Psychologists call this experience “Thought of Reference.” Events seem to reference the thoughts of the client. Many clients with psychotic disorders experience thoughts of reference. But what if they were not reporting a symptom of mental illness, but an experience everyone has in some form? What if televisions really do seem to comment on what we are thinking?
There is a measure of self-awareness called “The Mirror Test” developed by biopsychologist Gordon Gallup. Animals are shown their own reflection in a mirror. If they recognize the reflection in the glass as their own, it is taken as an indication it is a self-aware being. Humans, some great apes, elephants, and dolphins generally recognize their own reflections; a few birds do as well. Interestingly, some birds and dogs that can’t initially recognize their own reflections can be trained to do so. Synchronicity is a form of mirror test. People see in the mirror of events around them the image of their own inner life. They see what they think, feel and believe. They even see their fantasies about what causes these reflections. For some clients who report thoughts of reference, it is the stories they tell themselves about the causes of the SE, not the SE themselves, that label 2 them as symptomatic.

The Blink Environment — Natalie Sudman Describes Her Near-Death
Experience Due To A Roadside Bomb In Iraq
“An archaeologist who accepted a position managing construction
contracts in Iraq, Natalie Sudman tells the
story of her encounter with a roadside bomb (IED) and what happened
when she left her body and had a near-death experience. In the
blink of an eye, Natalie found herself in another dimension, what
she calls the Blink Environment. Surrounded by thousands of other-wordly
beings, she instantly began downloading minutely detailed
information to them about events, thoughts, concepts, judgments,
projections and connections regarding her physical life so far. Thus
begins this fascinating story of spiritual insight and experience

Just like the lonely princess in the fairy
tale who was reluctant to lock lips with a warty frog and transform him
into a handsome prince, something stops many of us short of attaining our
dreams. Our negative thoughts, emotions, and attitudes can threaten to
keep us from achieving all that we’re capable of. Here bestselling
author and speaker Brian Tracy and his daughter, therapist Christina Tracy
Stein, provide a set of practical, proven strategies anyone can use to
turn those negative frogs into positive princes.
Tracy and Stein present a step-by-step plan
that addresses the root causes of negativity, helps you uncover blocks
that have become mental obstacles, and shows how you can transform them
into stepping-stones to achieve your fullest potential. The book distills,
in an accessible and immediately useful form, what Tracy has presented in
more than 5,000 talks and seminars with more than five million people in
fifty-eight countries and what Stein has learned through thousands of
hours of counseling people from all walks of life.
“There is nothing either good or bad, but
thinking makes it so,” the authors quote Shakespeare. The many powerful
techniques and exercises in this book will help you change your mindset so
that you discover something worthwhile in every person and experience,
however difficult and challenging they might seem at first. You’ll learn
how to develop unshakable self-confidence, become your best self, and
begin living an extraordinary life.
"As someone who prefers movies about realistic experiences and relationships between people, I fell in love with
THE WAY, a movie written, produced and directed by Emilio Estevez, which stars his father, Martin Sheen. I also love movies that flirt with the subject of spirituality without force-feeding religion down its viewers' throats. Emilio handles this cautiously and skillfully, inspiring conversation without controversy. While there are certainly hints of Christianity and Catholicism throughout the movie--as it takes place along
El Camino de Santiago--the movie is really about the different relationships people have with God, in this case the people who make this spiritual journey to the burial place of St. James.
I'm both impressed and inspired by Emilio's skills at storytelling. Within the main story of a father grieving his son's passing, there are also characters coming to terms with their weight, past trauma, and lack of inspiration. Yet these underlying challenges are merely the backdrop to the individual interactions between the characters, as well as the dramatic, and often humorous, adventures they stumble upon. Everything about this movie is understated--in a good way--meaning that the writer/director and actors assume the viewers are intelligent enough to not need everything spelled out for them. And the fact that I never knew what to expect next, and was often surprised by the outcome, was simply the cherry on top."

"Teamwork divides the task and doubles the success."
"Because our entire universe is made up of consciousness, we never really experience the universe directly, we just experience our consciousness of the universe, our perception of it, so right, our only universe is perception."
