How Are You?

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 11, 2014

FINE usually means Feelings Inside Not Expressed! I read this and thought very interesting and very true. How often have you been in some kind of emotional or physical pain when someone close to you asked “How are you doing?” and you, in spite of the pain, said, “I’m fine,”knowing full well you weren’t?

It is true that when someone asks us how we are, we tend to respond with “I’m fine.” And the truth is that we are more often than not… NOT FINE when we say it.

Usually, the response “I’m fine” is an attempt to hide. Of course, the answer you... (more)

Letting Go and Finding Peace

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 26, 2013

In order to actually let go of something that is holding us back, we have to analyze the feelings associated with it. It is very interesting, although we think it is anger we feel, in reality it is perhaps hurt. That is the thing about emotions, they can blend and being totally honest with ourselves to get to the core of what we are feeling can be confusing. This is a very hard process when we are talking negative emotions, which we do not want to acknowledge to ourselves, let alone someone else.

Powerful emotions like love, regret, anger, grief, fear, hopelessness,... (more)

Observations On Life....

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Sep 21, 2012

...of what's on the inside, but that really is the only place you will find what you need to know.

Why is it that people are afraid you may ask. Great question, and surely the answers are verily unique relative to every individual. Going within means you have to study your feelings, both past and present. Very often, because it can cause pain from unresolved issues, we avoid this at all costs. Instead, some choose to mask their feelings with a "bandage" solution. Often this takes the form of an addiction. Numb it out with drugs, drink it away, ignore it and it may go ... (more)

A Hiding Place

By D. Sager, published on Feb 24, 2012

...sheltered, in the arms of my Father. When I am spending time with Him, He protects me and holds me, comforting me in my fears. It is there that the feeling of safety is irrelevant, for at that moment I am truly safe. Who can touch me when His strong arms wrap my soul in warmth and his unending love comforts my mind, ablaze with conspiracies? There is a place of safety, that if I will stay, will bring the feelings of the same. There is a place that no man, no terror, can prevail. My discipline is to stay there and laugh at the derision of men.

Say No To Hitler Style Relationships

By Barkha Dhar, published on Aug 15, 2011

...behavior is a subtle revelation of his psyche and selfdom, which also forms a contour to his relationship style.

Not surprisingly enough, but leadership is an offshoot of relationships. In addition to the domain of traits and skills, leadership is a pilotage of emotions that navigates feelings to purpose. A positive leadership builds, strengthens, and defines relationships through exchange of ideas, fair participation, and welcoming change to adapt to newer styles. Such facet is an important dimension in relationships, which helps sustain a healthy and open minded lifestyle. In my... (more)

Love On The Brain

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 15, 2011

...was lit up. The area of the brain associated with sexual activity that showed hunger and craving was lit up. However, areas associated with obsession and anxiety were lit up less than those of the study participants who claimed to be newly in love. Instead, the brain areas associated with feelings of calm were more lit up for the long time lovers.

Since this study was conducted on a small number of people and at one single time in their lives, it may be an over reach to apply it to years of love. It may be true that these couples who may be experiencing the "empty nest"... (more)

A Blessed Acknowledgement

By Barkha Dhar, published on Jul 29, 2010

...day pulls me inward to spiritual spunk. Listening to his innocent and enigmatic expressions often seems like divine recital. Such platonic relationship between a mother and her child is a route to bliss and benign emotions. My first born, whose plush gazes and fervent heart that has uniform feelings for birds, animals and all living beings, is my pioneer retreat to a conscious state. His playful and magical enchantments is realization that children as god’s cherubs are the hymns of nature. Their eternal kindle illuminates our life with love, hope, care and courage.

At a nascent... (more)
