A Better Way

October/November Issue of A Better Way #131 This month's article is one by Greg entitled "Every Problem Quietly Resolved: "The Liberating Problem-Solving Approach of 'The Quiet Answer' (T-27.IV). " Life is full of problems, isn't it? We have countless decisions to make every day, and we are often conflicted within ourselves and/or in conflict with others as we consider what to do. How can we possibly solve problems in a way that gets us out of conflict, that makes everyone genuinely and wholeheartedly happy? In this article, based on Text Chapter 27, section IV, "The Quiet Answer," Greg describes an approach to problem solving that undoes inner and outer conflict alike, an approach that we can apply to our daily lives right here and right now.

Alone Time 
I really like to spend time alone, especially in quiet meditation. Yet it seems to me that the Course frowns on this, since it emphasizes joining with others. How can I reconcile my desire for alone time with the Course's emphasis on joining?  Read more or post a reply»

Will taking medicine reinforce the ego? 
I have an illness, and am concerned about taking physical medicine. I know the Course does not forbid this, but since physical medicine is magic, won't taking it reinforce my ego?  Read more or post a reply»
