The new understanding

I mentioned Wednesday how I got a new understanding about my book It’s All About Me, and how the Involved  Observer process works, even after working with it for almost two years before publication, and I want to share it with you.  In the IO process we ask ourselves why something is bothering us.  We …

I Know it All!

OK, so here is a guy who spends two years writing a book, It’s All About Me, the Involved Observer.  The book gets published, and he starts doing workshops around the material.  Imagine his surprise when, he sits down with a group in Akron, Ohio to do the workshop and he learns there is an entirely …

You are the Teacher

When we send our kids off to school we think the teachers at that school are going to teach our kids (or grand kids) what they need to know.  The truth is those dedicated  people in the teaching profession do a wonderful job in so many areas, but the most important lessons are not the ones …

That table is covered with every imaginable delight to your senses; every food and drink your heart could desire, in unlimited quantities, and no matter how much you chose to consume, there would always be more ready for you at …
