Growth

For the sake of writing! There has been a hesitancy, even a fear or sense of dread, about writing on the blog pages of One Man Can. You see, the whole premise of the site, the writing, the coaching, the encouragement, was and is intended to lift people up, challenge people positively with their thinking, relationships, and professions. Instead, I found my own life being challenged and myself having difficulty being positive with the unfolding […]

Medic! Medic! : Helping the Wounded Live

from the archives July 13, 2006 On the battlefield a fallen soldier will often lay there near death, expecting death, when a comrade will stop and offer comfort and aid. Encouraging and strengthening his fallen comrade simply through comfort, the yell will follow, “Medic! Medic!” as help is sought that will bring the wounded soldier the medical attention that is needed. There are times when death will come too quickly or help will come too […]

Lose Yourself to Feel Good

Denial: I have to wonder what this is really all about. Over the decades, as psychology has gone more mainstream, it has infiltrated every aspect of our lives culturally and socially. It’s in our health coverage plans, employee benefits, in the movies, sitcoms, and even more in the advertisements. I’d say they’re having an influence upon our self and group consciousness. Earlier, I caught myself asking a question to seek the opinion of someone else […]

Tweedle-Ant chats to Iman-Ant – Something About Life & Existence

There I was hovering over a busy ant-hill when thought I heard something. I leaned in a little closer to see what it was. You won’t believe it, but I’ll share it anyway. “Do you suppose there is any rhyme or reason to any of this?” Dweedle-Ant posed. “He He He! Of course, Mant! Of course! Just take a look at that cute little heiny and tell me that ain’t no reason. That’s a reason!” […]

Things Worth Fighting For

Love is the first item at the top of the list, as it always seems to be a central core to what gets discussed. However, this gets to it from a different angle. Your worth fighting for. Love starts at home, we all know and understand this, even if we don’t all come from perfect homes. Heck, as adult parents, we judge ourselves pretty harshly too. In spite of all the failings and misery, we […]

Vulnerable Kindness is Strength or Weakness?

world mosaic: a tribute to flickr portraits Originally uploaded by pardeshi Facebook is filled with Applications that people circulate through invitations. Buy and Sell friends, Flirt till your blue in the Facebook, Triumph over opponents, share iThink opinions, and many others. Many of these Apps involve assessing your ‘friends’ on Facebook. This week, a Weakness was noted for being Too Kind, and it caused a pause of humorous delightful wonder. I was delighted and wondered […]

What is Possible? | Defy the Doubt | Try Anyway!

From the archives September 13, 2006 A topic of interest relates to a dog, Sassy, who I take out walking Saturday’s and Sunday’s. When I took up the assignment, I was warned about the dog, a Jack Russell Terrier, and her behavioural problems. Avoid other dogs, hang tight around squirrels, she’s very aggressive, and so on. Everything I heard sounded wrong; it didn’t sit well with me as I listened to all of these instructions. […]

Living Profoundly | A simple secret to a well-lived life

From the archives August 13, 2005 When you realize that you really want to have an impact in this world, to make a difference, remember that it is in each moment that you are alive and in the present. When you are too busy worrying about what you don’t have, what you have to do, where you’ve been, and what you don’t have, you’re not in the present; you’re consumed by the past you can’t […]

Everybody Hurts | Love is Life’s Emotional Journey

From the Archives. Many writers and editors critique the wordiness of my writing. I encourage you to embrace that feature. I’m not just sharing head-knowledge. I am endeavouring to take you to a place that you can feel, know, and understand. Love and life are funny things that often bewilder us, creating feelings within our body that are not really caused by any physical injury. Take heartbreak for example. Heartbreak is not a pain caused […]

Truest Challenge

To truly love. Repeat it, carefully and slowly. Let it sink in. No, really, stop reading for a second and just let the phrase, “To truly love,” really seep into your senses. I want you to feel it and its’ ramifications. What I noticed as I contemplated the phrase in its’ enormity, was an expanded energy toward embracing every aspect of what exists, both good or bad, without judgement, only pure love and acceptance. Ouch! […]
