Summary: In our three January posts on new year’s resolutions, we have seen that we must resolve to evolve. At any point in our lives we must know what wants to emerge in our development—the one or two critical things we must learn if we are to grow into our next level of potential. Then […]
Mobilizing New Energy for Resolve Parts One and Two Summary We’ve been looking at our resolutions to change, to go to war with our weaknesses. We’re often dilettantes making resolutions: we take on too many changes at once; we focus on doing rather than learning what we must learn; we underestimate the challenges of changing; […]
We’ve discovered that the universe is not a place; it’s a story, a story of an irreversible sequence of emergent events. For a long time we thought that the universe was an established realm that had its major creativity happening only at the beginning of time. We now understand that the universe is an ongoing […]
What Are Resolutions and Why Do We Make Them? We make resolutions because we recognize the need to change. The universe is emerging, and we are emergent beings.

Professional and Reader Reviews of Poise: A Warrior’s Guide
Five Stars This book is a gem! Katie Kaites
Five Stars It is nothing short of an invitation to a new life. For the religious among us it is the experience of death and resurrection. For the secular among us it is the process of claiming one's full potential. For those in recovery it is the daily decision to live the 12 steps as the spiritual path toward sobriety. The book zeroes in on the discipline required to identify and root out self-pity, the nemesis of a deep and connected life. The author invites us to confront our demons - pride, anger, rigidity, fear - all couched comfortably in self-pity, in order to rise like the phoenix from the ashes to engage our loved ones and the world in a full and loving way….All you warriors out there, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest this book. Then prepare to change the world as you are changed! Jeff Paul
