Spiritual Insight from the Namaste Book Your Forgotten Self

Why did Jesus refer to God as his “Father”? Actually, he used the familiar term abba in Greek, meaning “Daddy.”

The gospel writer Luke says of Jesus that, beginning when the family journeyed to Nazareth after his birth, “the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom.”

Jesus’ growth was an organic process of progressively becoming who he really was.

What Makes a Truly Effective Dad?

Insight from Michael Brown’s Alchemy of the Heart

Writing in the London Sunday Telegraph, British Prime Minister David Cameron said today that runaway dads should be stigmatized in the same way as drunk drivers and should feel the “full force of shame.”

It’s true that there are dads who don’t involve themselves with their children. Single mothers and those mothers who are separated or divorced often find that the dad doesn’t participate in the raising of children, at least not effectively.

CROSSING THE GENDER DIVIDE ON THIS FATHER'S DAY

blog

The psychological construction of the gender divide is clear and boundaried:

Female = feminine = nurturing, dependent, passive. 

Male = masculine = assertive, independent, active.

 Our fear of crossing this divide is great. Our sons are growing up paranoid of displaying tender qualities, terrified of appearing dependent. Our daughters are taught to stay away from assertive behavior and sacrifice daring for "good."  

While these stereotypes may come naturally to many, they stifle those who simply do not conform.

Spiritual Insight from the Story of The Little Prince

Life is uncertain. All kinds of things can happen to throw our plans, hopes, and dreams into disarray.

But this doesn’t mean we need to live from a sense of uncertainty.

When we are grounded in our solid center, the divine essence that’s the image of our Source, we don’t need to be tossed to and fro by emotional reactivity arising from events that come out of the blue.

What to Do with the Hurt in Your Life

Spiritual Insight from Eckhart Tolle's Stillness Speaks

Do you think of yourself as wounded?

If you have recovered from feeling wounded, and now help others who are wounded, do you think of yourself as a “wounded healer”?

Michael Brown points out in The Presence Process, which we will in the June issue of the Namaste Publishing newsletter (you can sign up for it free on this site) offer for the first time in audio format for instant download, that our true being has never been wounded and hence there is no need for healing.
