This past month has been incredibly busy, with my preparing for and delivering my first Teleprogram. The topic was Self-Esteem, and it went very well. I’m planning on offering a four class Teleseminar in January on Spiritual Self-Esteem. For more information, visit “Self-Esteem: The Key To Unlock Your True Potential.”

A couple of months ago, a friend of mine sat in on a lecture by a Zen Master. He said that meditation didn’t heal traumas. After sitting doing meditation for fifteen years, he recognized that he still had a lot of emotional baggage and entered into some emotional healing therapies. He warned the listeners not to attempt to use Zen meditation to fix their lives.

This touched on a subject that I’ve often talked about to my friends and clients. In thirty plus years of being a spiritual seeker, I’ve seen so many people expect that their spiritual practices would wipe away their emotional issues. It does help strengthen them and allow them to face them better, but it doesn’t make them go away. So I wrote my article for my monthly newsletter, “Can Spirituality Be An Escape?”

  1. I love the info and have bookmarked your blog. Haver you thought of doing a vlog describing this stuff?

  2. A non-doer is very often a critic-that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It’s easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change.
