A Most Valuable Employee


When certain areas of your life continue to drag; when you realize you are not anywhere near where you would like to be, it's a good time to simply remind yourself of certain truths over and over again - that you either are not yet paying attention to, or perhaps you need to say them more loudly and insistently to yourself, in order to take them on board. Internalizing these truths will go a long way to pull the areas of your life that are dragging up from out of the mud.

For this to happen, your mind needs to become your servant. You may prefer to call it your employee, or valued associate. What exactly is it that you do with servants or employees, at least at the very beginning of your working relationship? Isn't it true that you show them - in as clear a manner as possible - what you want them to do and how you want them to do it? Isn't it also true, that you factor in the possibility that your new servant or employee may not complete the assigned tasks as well as he/she could, or in as timely a fashion, or even, in fact, make mistakes, and that therefore you know in advance that you might need to show him/her - patiently - again how to do what you wanted in the first place? And then perhaps again? We understand that this is how life is, and when we expect another to do something on our behalf, training is part of the equation. And training takes time. And discipline. And perseverance. And intention. And attention.

Why, oh why, would you expect it to be easier with your mind?

In order for your mind to be your valued employee, you need to train it. This means you need to take very good care of your thoughts. In order to do so, you need to become very conscious and aware. In this process of taking good care of your thoughts, you will also be taking care of your feelings. Simultaneously you will be training yourself and your mind to make good choices at all times, not in only what you think, and feel, but also in what you say and do, and in how you react to others.

All of this together leads to peace, inner harmony, and equilibrium. Your valued - and well-trained - employee now helps you create good results in ways an untrained mind will have much greater difficulty in doing. It was Franklin Roosevelt who said: men are not prisoners of fate, but prisoners of their own minds.

Praise for The Tao of Spiritual Partnership

“All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come."
Chris Griscom: Spiritual Leader, Author (among others) of: Ecstasy is a New Frequency

“Eloquent and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion.”

The Power of Your Heart: Loving the Self 


My new book: The Power of Your Heart: Loving the Self, is just out. Click here to download an excerpt. 
Here is a paragraph from the Introduction:

It is your right to live a life of love. It is your right to understand that loving yourself first is not a selfish way of behavior, but one that allows you to live that life of love. However, it's highly probable that you never got the instruction manual explaining exactly how to accomplish this. Possibly your family - and it may have been a loving family - considered loving the self an act of selfishness. Or perhaps the members of your family simply didn't practice loving the self, and of course, what you didn't see - what was not shown to you - while you were growing up, meant that you just didn't learn how to apply it to yourself. The closer you are able to move towards loving yourself, the closer you will be to living a life of love - quite independently of whether you are in a love relationship or not. A life of love can be lived with or without a partnership, because a life of love implies that you know that it all begins with you by loving the self. The more clearly you understand how to love yourself, the more clearly you will see that it is very hard - if not impossible - to love others in ways that are unrelated to fulfilling any of your needs. Loving yourself first is - for so many of us - one of the hardest things we will ever learn how to do. But know this: the benefits affect you in every particle of your being - body, mind, and soul - and are greater than you will ever be able to imagine.
