*Change Your Thinking Change Your LIfe*

 Do you ever feel like you or a loved one suffers from chronic negative thinking? These patterns can be as subtle as that little voice in your head that just has to remind you of the negative possibility involved in an exciting situation, “so you won’t get so disappointed if it doesn’t happen”.  Which, by the (Read more...)

Seeking Recovery from Human Condition?

Seeking Recovery from Human Condition?

I think about this when I go to sitting groups and hear people talk about the frustration of sooo wanting to be ok with circumstances around them as they are. I think the 12 steppers call it life on life’s terms and the Buddhist’s talk about equanimity. As the person with the raised hand and (Read more...) More »

Who Makes Who Happy?

There seems to be a lot of confusion about this in the relationships I encounter. Several times a day I hear someone say s/he really doesn’t want to do something. But s/he is going to do it anyway because-and in creeps this you know what I mean tone that makes me want to look around (Read more...) More »

(references blame) (Read more...) More »
