Norman’s Journal

Thanks for visiting. I started journaling many years ago as a private means of self-expression and tactic for helping me understand what was going on in my life.

However, after all the experiences and revelations I’ve come to understand that all our journeys, on one level or another, are shared. And even more important: we are all One and it’s precisely this unity that has emboldened me to share in this way and with the book, to be published in 2012, from which these excerpts are drawn.

The magic is there for all of us! So, if this resonates … read on!

(I realize that I’d been programming myself for failure because of a subliminal belief in ‘perfection.’ I’ve come to understand that true perfection is in being fully present in each moment.) Perfection rarely has been a fixed, specific goal that I have been after, as in a number, but rather a concept. This type of […]

(A major part of the journey for me was creating victim and deprivation scenarios often linked to romantic flights of fancy. I clearly wasn’t in my place of power and yet each ‘aha!’ acted on takes back a little bit of what I unwittingly gave away.) I’ve been trying to relieve my loneliness by hooking […]
