UNCONDITIONAL PERSONAL REGARD

© 2010 Howard McQueen



Unconditional Personal Regard is the blanket acceptance of a person regardless of what they say or do. Without Unconditional Personal Regard (for themselves), people may come to see and imagine themselves in the negative ways that others have made them feel.



Further, those sharing their…

OPPORTUNITY TO MOURN

(C) 2010 Howard McQueen


Preface
Yesterday, after over two months of conflicts and explosions, a member of my community made the decision to leave the community. This person suffers from deregulation, an inability to see and connect to their empathy for others. There are fond and not fond memories as all of the community tried as they might to assist this person see themselves and the dilemma, and all of us talked and mourned together this…

Your Body as an Antenna

Close your eyes and visualize your body as an antenna, picking up invisible waves of energy from the environment around you. Feel the vibrational frequencies permeating your body. Do you experience a tingling sensation? Listen as your ears pick up sound waves coming in from all directions. Feel those same sound waves entering your body as well. Bask in the vibrations.



Feel the aliveness in your body as it breathes in air and expels it. Feel the body where it touches the chair you are… Continue

CONNECTING AND COMMUNICATING: PIERCING THE VEIL OF SUFFERING

Version 1.1 2010.10.23
(C) 2010 Howard McQueen


Raw Rumblings


When we experience the visceral knowing that we are individual cells of a vast and profoundly complex living organism, we begin to hold these insights as aspects of our Wholeness. These experiences reveal the mystery of unknowable deeper truths that are not comprehensible through our personal mind. We open our core and access the vibratory space of our deeper self that…

We incarnate into a living Wonder
far beyond our will to control.


We face the additional challenges of being bred, programmed and indoctrinated into a society that:


- Rewards the out-of-balance mental striving to manipulate and control, at the expense of a healthy planet and the health and well-being of all of humanity.


- Rewards living as…

RESPONSIVENESS CALLING



Version 1.3 | 2010.10.21
(c) 2010 Howard McQueen


Words spoken by others
can be received as so full of judgment, so condemning.
So, we wait
and, rather than expectorate vile, venom and fear,
we let a deeper potential
for what is possible
draw near
and whisper in a new language that informs and awaken in us
a curiosity to stay connected and in…

SPEAKING (OR NOT) OUR TRUTH



(c) 2010 Howard McQueen


I have recently become acutely aware, that in certain situations,
I am not able to access and clearly speak my own truth about what I need.


This can be triggered by something as simple as beginnng to feel that my expectations
for needing something from someone else are in jeopardy of not being met.
