Dear People:

You had five significant articles and blog posts that were your favorites in April. Even after almost 12 years of writing this HR site, I am still learning month to month what is most popular with my readers. Sure, overall trends tell me a lot. You like sample policies, checklists, forms, and samples. You like anything that is new or different or that adds new approaches to your toolkit. Getting along with coworkers and bosses never loses popularity – because people are humans for all that is to love or not about that. Lately, sample HR letters are also high on your list. Your feedback (see below) is always welcome.

But, the most popular in my newsletter are fun to look at every month. So, here are your favorites from April. Have a great week. Happy reading.

Today

In a couple of years, I’ll be dealing with my daughter’s issues (good and bad) about middle school dances. Will I be the overbearing dad, or the “helping her make sure the dress looks just right” kind of dad? Neither, if the Stanley Cup Playoffs are on! I’m a terrible father.

The Mystic Journey

What does it mean to live the mystic’s life? Many say that the mystic is always kind, loving, and positive, even self-sacrificing. But these things do not represent the mystic’s journey. The mystic’s journey is an inward journey, one that might surprise us with its fierce and persistent longing to serve every single aspect of self as if it were a starving child. We tend to believe that those who are on the mystic’s journey are going to be saints in every sense of that word. But we might be surprised to learn who in our world is actually on the mystic’s journey, for it is done so silently that it might not even be noticeable. In fact, it turns out that the mystic’s journey doesn’t really have anything whatsoever to do with terms we know as “good” and “bad,” “morality” and “ethics.” It is unsettling in its depth, and utter peace in its essence. Want to learn about the mystic’s journey. Don’t miss this show.

What is Destiny

The word destiny gets thrown about quite a bit both in and out of the New Age/New Thought worlds. When we meet that special soulmate we tend to think it was fated. And we tend to think that destiny is a done deal that it is what it is and there’s not much we can do to stop it from happening. And yet in our typically duplicitous way of thinking we also believe that if we work hard we can create the life we want. So, which is true? And what has astrology got to do with destiny? Is an astrological chart a map of one’s fate? Or is it just bunk? We go to psychics and we want them to tell us will we meet our soulmate, will we get that job, will we have that money. But are they telling us our destiny? Or is it just bunk? What is true and what is false about destiny? What is true and what is false about astrology and what it has to say about destiny? Are you trying to determine your destiny? You don’t want to miss this show.

Why Isn’t The Law of Attraction Working?

Is it bunk? Are we doing it wrong? Is there something wrong with us that we can’t make it work? What’s the problem? The simple answer is that life is just an illusion anyway, so what difference does it make. But life is not an illusion. Duality is an illusion. And the problem with the law of attraction may have something to do with the fact that we’ve come at our understanding of it from a dualistic perspective. This show we are going to answer that question once and for all. So, if you are struggling with the law of attraction, or trying to create something in your life using vision boards, affirmations and positive thinking—this show is for you.

Special Encore Presentation: Dr. Brian Weiss and Deeper Levels of Healing

Dr. Brian Weiss comes to the Authentic Living Show this week to help us find new levels of healing with regard to past life regression. He’ll be appearing at the upcoming I Can Do It Conference in Atlanta, GA to discuss this same topic and today we are fortunate to have him come here to give us a preview and to help us understand past-life regression and why it helps us heal and grow. Dr. Weiss is best known for his best-selling book Many Lives, Many Masters, and his scientific exploration of a topic, which in the field of psychiatry is still considered by many to be bogus. His work is considered by most to be earth-shattering in that it changes the entire view of who we are and what we are doing here. So, you are not going to want to miss this show.

Relationship AS Soul

Robert Forman comes back to be with us today to talk about his ideas about Jazz in the Soul in which relationship becomes real and soulful. Robert is the author of “Enlightenment Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul” carries a profound awareness of what it is like to live life in touch with soul. When it comes to relationship, we tend to think that the other party is our soul. They represent our happiness, our security, our hope and often we think that we cannot live without some of our relationships. Well perhaps we never live without them, but that’s not the question. The question is how much of our relationship is soul and how much operates as if it is separate from the soul? If you want to learn how to make yours into a soulful relationship, don’t miss this show.

Body AS Soul

Historically the body has been blamed for all of man’s errors, his so-called “sins,” and his weaknesses. It makes him sick and it eventually dies. It’s rather like a ball and chain we drag around with us. And the soul is a distant relative, living so far away in heaven that we can’t get to it until we die. And whether we still believe those things or not they are still rolling around in the unconscious as archetypal memory. So, here’s the $64,000 question: Why did we come here in a body if all it is is an encumbrance which we eventually dump in favor of heaven or the next incarnation? Is it the slave of the mind, pushed and cajoled and even whipped into shape? Is it like a devil, meant to tempt us with all manner of intemperance? What’s the point? Well today we are going to delve into these mysteries, with a little humor, and a lot of wisdom. If you are having trouble connecting the dots between body and soul, don’t miss this episode.
