Let It Go: Free Your Emotions | Healthy Emotional Expression

From the archives March 2, 2005 Too often today I read messages, books, and lessons that suggest “do not express your emotions.” Rather, it is expected that I “rise above them” and stay centred. There is some truth to those suggestions but it also ignores some steps. Over the past two years I have dealt with the emotional turbulence that goes with marital breakdown, starting a business, financial pressure, challenging old belief structures, and discovering […]

The Truth About Emotional Intelligence | Some Healing Required

From the archives January 21, 2005 There is so much emphasis on emotional intelligence these days that it appears that people are suppressing their emotions and problems in an effort to “fit in,” to keep their jobs, and using “positive self-talk” to muscle through the rough spots in their lives. Recently, I had a friend over who has suffered enormous job stress during a time when his wife’s father was dying of cancer. Of course, […]

Lonely Man Searches for Woman | How to Get Laid

lonely the man searches for the woman This was the search phrase that brought someone to my site.  I googled it myself and went through 15 pages of search results without finding a link to my site. How lonely is that? Even before searching how far into the search results, I felt inspired to write some observations for the lonely man. A woman is not attracted to a lonely man. At least, not a healthy, […]

He Said, She Said | The Relationship Triangle | Successful Relations

From the archives June 29, 2005 Most people get involved in a relationship for the right reasons and leave a relationship for the wrong reasons. In fact, most of us have been guilty of it at one time or another and of being a complete spaz demanding we get our way in the relationship. Remember the movie He Said, She Said? A constant power struggle ensues when you make the relationship all about you. So […]

Life in the Desert | Shaping the Spirit Within

From the archives April 27, 2006 The journey through life, full of many twists and turns, can at times leave you breathless, wondering where you went wrong. It appears that going wrong is the only obvious explanation for the turmoil that you face. With the soul parched, struggling to find meaning and purpose, the desolate landscape of a desert saps the life out of each step. With the heel dragging, the footfall landing on cacti, […]

Anger is Love | Emotional Intelligence

From the archives October 22, 2005 Anger is Love. The work with spiritual and emotional intelligence has developed this perspective in my life. It has allowed me to check in underneath the anger for the other emotions that exist there. Quite often, it includes sadness, much in the way that we would feel and express sadness for the tragedies we see occurring around the world. I have learnt that anger has not served me well […]

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 […]

Anger | Bridge Over Troubled Water | Patience, Love, God

From the archives An interesting event occurred yesterday (June 8, 2006) that revealed anger to be an opportunity. I was walking back home after an appointment downtown in the morning and had an encounter with a rude motorist. I gestured a “what gives” posture as I tried to cross at the intersection, on the pedestrian Go signal, only to recieve a tirade of emotions. Equal to the opportunity, I responded with equal stupidity and responded […]
