How to Avoid the Fog of Overwhelm Part II

In my last post, Avoiding the Fog of Overwhelm Part I, I discussed the state of overwhelm, what it is, how it happens and how it affects us. To recap briefly, overwhelm happens when there is too much information (message units) coming into our conscious awareness. Our minds only have a certain capacity, like a cup that you can only pour so much … [Read more...]

Avoiding the Fog Of Overwhelm Part I

An example of overwhelm: driving in the worst fog I've ever encountered, many years ago. I couldn't see anything except the two red brake lights of the car ahead of me. I couldn't see the lines of the road, and I dared not pull over to the side of the road for fear of being hit by another car. All I could do was keep my hands on the wheel, pray … [Read more...]

Liberation from You

Liberation. The word is inspiring and filled with history and meaning. Look up the phrase "independence"  on Wikipedia and you'll get a definition about countries, nations and states and self government. Look up the word liberation, and you won't get much. As a definition, three words, actually. Why so much about freedom but so little … [Read more...]

Once Upon a Time, There was You, Making Up Stories…

Do you have a habit of making up stories? We know some people who have a tendency to exaggerate the truth. We think we know what is real. But do we really? Something that happened to me this morning: I was out for my morning walk when a police officer pulled up alongside of me in his car. He asked me my name and for my ID. He said that they … [Read more...]

Stop It! 43 Things To Stop Doing NOW

Stop saying "I hate _." That makes you a hater. Stop acting like you're the only one with problems. Stop complaining to people that can't do anything about it. They don't want to hear. Stop complaining if nothing can be done about it. Just stop complaining, already! Stop wishing that what is, isn't and that what isn't, is. Deal with what … [Read more...]

Happiness and The Hypnosis of the Culture Part II

Here's a parable that I think speaks to the topic of happiness and the hypnosis of the culture. One day a monk stopped by the house of a wealthy man and found the owner busily filling a large steel chest  with gold and silver coins. Puzzled, the monk asked him what he was doing. The man replied, "Sir, you have no cares. The faithful feed you, … [Read more...]

Happiness and the Hypnosis of the Culture, Part I

You might've heard the story of the guy walking down the street and sees another guy looking for something by the side of the road. "Hey" the first guy says,"What are you looking for?" "I'm looking for my keys", says the other guy. "Let me help you! Where did you see them last?" "In my house." "Um, so why you are looking for them out … [Read more...]

Scaring Away the Dark Side of Change

Ever wonder why we wear masks on Halloween? Why we dress up and disguise ourselves as ghosts, witches and monsters? The modern holiday of Halloween has its roots in both the Celtic celebration of Samhain and the Christian holiday of All Saints Day. Samhain ("the end of summer") celebrated the end of the "lighter half" of the year and the … [Read more...]

You, on The Hero’s Journey

  I like Star Wars. "The Empire Strikes Back" is my favorite movie. When I hear the word transformation, I think about Luke Skywalker, and unless you've been living in a cave since 1977, you know that he is the hero of the first three Star Wars movies. Here's a guy that goes from being a whiny, irresponsible young farm boy to becoming the … [Read more...]

What About The Voice in Your Head?

You have the Voice in your head. You probably know this. If you don't, you should. You may be thinking: "What voice? What is he talking about? I don't have a voice. Maybe he has a voice in his head, but I certainly do not have one in mine." Well, that's what I'm talking about. It's OK, we all have the Voice in our head. Maybe more than … [Read more...]
