I realized it for the first time in my life: there is nothing but mystery in the world, how it hides behind the fabric of our poor, browbeat days, shining brightly, and we don’t even know it.

Welcome to our new series titled Connect With Your True Self ! Doug and I have spent the last few weeks planning out these new posts, and now we’re ready to share them with you.
What’s this all about?
This new series of posts will be presented in the same style as our Find Your Path In Life series- I’ll talk about the topic, provide examples from my life and then list an exercise for you to follow along.
New Doug drawings and photos will accompany the posts as well.
Connect With Your True Self will address various topics that aim to guide you to better understanding of yourself.
Creativity, imagination and our inner landscape will be explored. Spirituality will be covered as well…
Wait! I’m (fill in the blank) and I’m uncomfortable with other religions
I’ve been interested in religion my whole life, and have studied many of the major and fringe offerings. This series isn’t about religion. It’s about the common factors that make us human. No matter what religion, or lack of, that you subscribe to, these posts will be useful to you.
Creativity and imagination are key to any spiritual practice, as well as getting to know yourself better. Both will be explored and played with as we dig in to what makes us who we are, and why we believe what we do. We all share a common thread that makes us human.
We all have an inner world in which we live… an inner “us”. Many people are not in touch with this inner landscape, and it influences their life without them realizing it. We’ll be doing exercises to explore this inner world, and get to know who lives there.
We usually present different aspects of ourselves in public and in different situations. Connect With Your True Self is an attempt to unify all of these separate selves into one true persona. We all need to accept ourselves and be honest about who we really are. In doing this, we can view ourselves, others and the world with honesty and a smile…
Get a new pad, sharpen your pencil and follow along. We’ll start off with imagination and how we can use it tomorrow…
