Choices and Illusions: The Road Map for Life

Feb 02, 2017
Choices - Eternal Truth

Well, today is a good day indeed, and I wish to share this with you! When I first met Eldon, I was astounded by the range and depth of his education—all the things he had achieved. When I asked him how he managed it all, he basically said, “One step at a time!” Now, almost 27 years later, I look back at all I have achieved and I think his answer was a little simplistic. In addition to focus and determination, maximizing time use is crucial, and I have a fun way for doing this. Life’s Purpose Like most people, ...

Choices, Illusions, Free-Will, Or Determinism?

Jan 29, 2017
Choices - Eternal Truth

Today, I wish to discuss the nature of choice. My NY Times bestselling book, Choices and Illusions, was just released as an audio program so I have the book in the front of my mind. Paraphrased, J. Krishnamurti said, “Choice is an illusion. Do I do this—do I do that—all of this is confusion. I can only choose when I’m confused. When I know clearly, there is no choice.” Subconscious Thinking Thirty years ago, Benjamin Libet showed that there is activity in the subconscious within milliseconds before a conscious thought occurs. In other words, our so-called conscious thoughts are given ...

Why Positivity Matters!

Jan 25, 2017

Last week I wrote about the placebo effect and the importance of positive thinking. Today I want to look at this from the other angle—that of the detrimental effects of negative thinking. Fortunately, many of you are already aware of this, and it accounts for the fact that Up from Depression recently became our most popular title. I am aware that this may all sound a little convoluted, so let me explain. Medstudentitis I just came across a very interesting article. In this piece, the writer describes life as a first year medical student—she was learning all about the “litany ...

Nurture the Power of Your Mind

Jan 18, 2017
Nurture Your Mind

This morning I was thinking about a book I am currently working on: Bottling the Placebo Effect: The Real Secret to Health, Wealth and the Fountain of Youth. A key component to this rests on a solid understanding of the power of your own mind. Now, I am sure that you already believe in the power of the mind as why else would you have subscribed to the InnerTalk newsletter. However, what I am talking about here is a solid, constant understanding—the kind of knowledge that simply does influence all of your choices. The Power of Belief There is an ...

Unexpected Lessons in Self-Esteem!

Jan 11, 2017
Believe in Yourself

I had the most interesting experience over the holidays this last year—interesting and educational. As this experience answers, in part at least, one of the most common kinds of questions we receive about the InnerTalk programs, I thought I would share it with you. I was up early on Christmas Eve and, wanting to give my family a chance to sleep in, I made sure to keep my movements soft and quiet. I even tiptoed into our bedroom when it was time to shower. It wasn’t until I was getting dressed that I heard my husband mutter something about him ...

The Resolution Solutions

Jan 06, 2017

What kind of person are you? Did you manage to start the New Year at a sprint? Are you proud of yourself for keeping to all of your New Year’s Resolutions for the first few days of the New Year? Or are you like most other people—perhaps you’ve kept your resolutions for one or two days but, as in many of the prior years, you have already lost the battle of keeping to your goals? It’s easy to become really disheartened when, once again, you find that you have failed to keep your resolutions. What can be worse though, is ...
