What I Learned from My Green Energy Walk (Blog with Jokes)

One of the things that tells me that I may be recovering from COVID-19 is that I’m able to once again go on walks before bed. I use a step counter watch, and while I’m not yet able to reach 15,000 steps — which was my average in February — in the last week, I’ve been able to walk an average of 8500 steps every day.

This may not be as healthy a habit as in February, but it sure does save me time.

How the Mechanism of Inner Silence Works

“Inner silence” is our phrase in the Joyful Wisdom System for a specific mechanism that we can harness to find wisdom in our daily lives. Anyone of us who thinks about this topic scientifically understands that no one is really silent inside unless they are dead.

So it is true that this phrase is inaccurate, but it does point the way to a mechanism that is extremely valuable to people who master it. The best way to understand this mechanism is to understand how our group method, the Chrysalis Wisdom Council, works.

(Blog with Jokes) What’s So Special about the Heart Chakra?

Combine Your Joyful Wisdom Conversations with Apps to Enhance Your Insights

I did a Wisdom Council awhile back with a Joyful Wisdom buddy. I was able to work through a lot of feelings and discovered that I was resisting using some of the Joyful Wisdom tools because of negative memories about other groups I was in several years ago that split up. I was blocked because I was afraid to help build another community. It was an emotional Wisdom Council, but opened up a lot of possibility. One choice I made was to subscribe to the Joyful Wisdom tools and really start using them. I subscribed to the apps that same day.
