Self-authority, a guest post by Sandy

May self-authority light your way.

May self-authority light your way.

What does spiritual self-authority mean? Self-authority is one of the jewels in the crown of YOU. Because self-authority is how you know what matters to you, what is true for you.

Self-authority means your own heart and mind, your gut feelings and the rest of your emotional reactions as well.

Also included in self-authority are what physical sensations int the body tell you, plus common sense and worldly wisdom.

Many a new client has come to me with the popular New Age idea or religious ideal that, supposedly, there is an authentic self, a true self, a more Christ-like version of self, etc. And, supposedly, this must be consulted at all times.

MBS Books with Muscle, Pathways Magazine, Winter 2010

Bodybuilders create works of muscle, will, and beauty by sculpting their bodies. A different beauty is shaped when a person simply works hard, really hard, to accomplish a task. Indirectly, muscles are built up, torn. Later those same muscles will repair themselves, even regenerate, producing more strength than ever.

Each title selected for review in this Pathways Winter 2010 Issue is the product of someone who worked really hard, building spiritual muscle with great passion and skill. I feel honored to have met these courageous authors through their work. I’m excited to introduce their books to you.
