▣ Railing/Gossiping/Judgment

 Question: I am very sensitive to “railing” on anyone, because I believe as you have said many times “people do the best they can with what they have/know at the time. Here’s where I am struggling with this. For instance: I’m in a conversation with someone who is “railing” another person. Do I provide the wisdom like the statement below to the person who is doing the “railing” or do I let it go. What is the impact to me if I just let it go? Did I do what is morally correct (not sure exactly what that means these days) if I don’t take the opportunity to “teach” the person who feels it is necessary to do the “railing.”

BUCKET 2012
Richard Parker, Psy.D

 

Well here it is another year in my life has wrapped up. I obviously made it through 2011 and in relatively good health and high spirits. So now I start the 2012 New Year by saying to you and yours “carpe diem.”

 

 

There is a tradition that most Americans are well aware of that involves making New Year’s resolutions. You review your current life and habits and develop a few written statements regarding things you want to change. However, in reality, most of the resolutions listed turn into failures.  There are numerous rationalizations about why these desired changes fail because people are infinitely creative in explaining their basic lack of motivation. Okay, so you fail and that is somewhat of a shame, but, in reality, you expected to fail on many of the resolutions you developed for yourself; and, while I could write about dozens of rational reasons for your failure, it still might not cover your particular circumstances.

The Law of Reflection
 
How often have you heard yourself or someone say, “I quit my last job because my co-worker kept harassing me and now I am in the same situation on this new job!” or “I moved out of state to get a fresh start; and now after the expense and trauma of moving here, I am still in the same circumstances!” and so on!

THE ROLE-MODELS THAT “SNEAK” INTO THE UNCONSCIOUS PART OF YOUR LIFE
Written by R. C. Parker
 
You’ve heard the statement before regarding food - you are what you eat. Well this posting is not about improving your eating habits; however, it could have that added benefit. This posting is to get you to consciously focus on the role-models you either put into or let sneak into your unconscious mental processes (JAR) on a constant basis – that is, who do you let in to your life on a daily basis without thinking about the impact they are having on your life-force or energy?

There is something about September that you should be made conscious of…September is the month every year when you may find yourself a little depressed, sad, and/or feeling rundown,   It is the month that precedes our energy related to transitioning from one year to the next.   In this case, from 2012 to 2013. 

“At this time you come face to face with life situations. Old ideas become outdated and new goals become feasible. There is often an internal struggle to decide whether to cling to the outmoded past or to associate yourself with the new incoming possibilities. The choices confront you and your reluctance shows itself plainly.

GRATITUDE ROCKS
The following is my interpretation/elucidation of obtaining, creating and using my version of a gratitude rock – Richard Parker.
During our daily lives, we sometimes wish or want things to be better.  However, what we do is focus on the negative events or people that have put a negative idea in our thoughts; and then this focus creates a repetitive loop of negative thoughts in our heads.

HEALING AND HEALING ENERGY

People who regularly meditate often find that their physical and mental health improves.

▣ Emotions and How Meditation Can Help.

No Tags Currently Defined

I want to know about anxiety, fear, jealousy, guilt and intolerance and how all these emotions and attitudes relate to each other and how meditation helps one intentionally intervene to keep these emotions from taking over their life?

 

It is important to recognize that answering this question could take an entire book as it is about human emotions which are very complex areas of the psyche – the conscious and unconscious process of the human mind (JARs). Meditation is useful in

(1) clarifying your mind regarding the factors, people and your interpretation of the emotions that you are dealing with in some important situation in a protected spiritual environment;

(2) focusing your awareness in such a way that it allows you to intervene – creating an intentional intervention;

(3) expanding your view of the world;

(4) wrapping you in calmness – peace of mind; and

(5) as needed, providing the gift of Universal Healing.

INTRODUCTION

Are you nostalgic for the good old days?

In the good old-days before every household had a television, life was simpler – or so it seemed. You can watch an old movie or one of the early television shows like, “It’s a Wonderful Life” with James Stewart and Donna Reed, or “The Donna Reed Show,” or “Father Knows Best” with Robert Young and Jane Wyatt.  These shows depicted life as simple giving the impression that life was safe and secure. On these shows, neighbors knew each other and did not lock their doors; as a kid, you could go to your parent and get them to help you with any of life’s problems; even the teenagers had...
