Many of our family and cultural and religious conventions are based on three bases of human psychological dynamics that Read more [...]

A Worldview Coaching Perspective

AN IMPORTANT EXAMPLE OF EVOLUTIONARY PROGRESS  Blog Posts in a series. Today, 21t century morality has it that one may choose to be all heterosexual or all gay, or Bisexual, and a variety of expressions between the two defining polarities  in the black-and-white stereotypes of the two genders.  It is accepted now that gender alone, Nature, does not define you or me; nor does our Nurture alone.   Other 'energies' in us point out that the Read more [...]

{Im}Patience and What Belief Fuels It.

In my free time today I mused about a new friend I've made who I find thoughtful, intriguing, and liking communication.  I do muse occasionally in writing.  She mentioned the need to find more patience to move to a conclusion a project that has her full attention lately.   Patience is something we often want more of.  But the source, the belief beneath that patience, or the IMpatience, is worth a look.   Patience may be the classic example Read more [...]
