Introduction

Welcome to the Inner Health Books Blog, dedicated to the mind and body. Here we will offer different points of view on a vast array of topics. We hope to give you fresh perspectives on every facet of life, from the mundane to the ethereal and everything in between.

We are going to begin this blog by taking a look at some words of wisdom that you have probably heard many times throughout your life. However, we are going to expand these old adages and offer a deeper understanding of the meanings behind them. We will preface each Words of Wisdom post with “WoW” to distinguish them from other posts. We think WoW is a very appropriate acronym for them, too.

We hope you enjoy the information presented here, and we invite you to listen to our playlist of interviews with author, Michael Schwartz. You’ll find it in the left panel of this page. Just click to play, sit back and get ready to delve further into understanding the Self.

We welcome your comments and hope you will join the discussions. Be well!

WoW – Believe in yourself with all your tenacity.

How true this is. If you do not believe in yourself, who will? Believing in yourself has a power unto itself. It gives you strength. The power of your convictions gives you the fortitude to persevere when others tell you … More

WoW – Love all, trust a few, and wrong no one

Now here’s a challenge if ever there was one. In fact, this particular thought was presented to us over 2,000 years ago. I’m not sure if it is in the Old Testament, but it certainly is in the New Testament. … More

WoW – Perform acts of goodness from within.

This ties into loving without expecting anything in return. When you perform acts of goodness, such as helping an elderly person across the street or lifting a bag or opening a door, it makes you feel good by doing so … More

Everyone has an opinion. The best you can hope for is that others respect yours. If they don’t, c’est la vie. Be a better person by accepting theirs. However, never hesitate to put yours out there. Maybe you have an … More

WoW – Realize that there is no such thing as a perfect marriage.

This is true on many different levels. The word marriage can be applied to more than a relationship with another human being. Marriage is basically any relationship. On some levels, man has made it into a contractual agreement where each … More
