TAPPING INTOINNER RENEWABLE RESOURCESFOR CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND GOAL ACHIEVEMENT
By Leonard BurgPrepared for PACE UNIVERSITYStaff Development MeetingApril 28, 2006
There’s an old saying in Holistic Health circles: “The Disease is theCure”. The pain and upset of life’s conflicts and challenges makes us pay
attention to what we may be ignoring or even denying and suppressing. On theother hand, we can choose to find the time and patience to focus and payattention without being forced to by conditions. In doing so we can tap into atremendous, inexhaustible font of inner resources that makes us a morevaluable asset in whatever capacity we are working. Hopefully the Staff  Development meeting which spurred this handbook contributes to Pace
University’s effort to retain students and enrich their education
1
. And, in doingso, it should contribute to the growth and development of staff and administration. It is my fervent hope that the reader treats this booklet and its
tenets as a “Working Hypothesis”, in the spirit of the great Greek philosopher/ 
mathematician, Euclid.

I INTRODUCTIONHigher Intelligence and Higher Self 
Inside of the “human being” (sometimes called “the Crown of Creation”
2
by theancients) we have, and are, more than just a mind. We are that which uses the mind and thebody --- that which sees through our eyes, and hears through our ears. A panoramic study of philosophic, religious and spiritual literature generally finds much agreement that this lifegiving principle within us is connected to an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent reality.Some call it a Higher Intelligence
3
, Universal Mind, God, Supreme Being, the All, etc.Whatever this all expansive reality is, or whatever you choose to call it, there is a
spark of this “divinity” within each and every human being. Some call this spark Soul or 
Spirit or Animus
4
. Whatever you call it, it’s generally agreed that it has the same essential
 
qualities of immortality as the “Higher Intelligence”. To consciously and willfully access thisentity, which we will call the “Higher Self”, requires the ability to enter into its domain, first
via the mind, and then beyond the mind.The enhanced capacity and will to resolve conflicts, needs, and challenges in route toachieving goals is rooted in our ability to learn how to consciously access the Higher Self,and navigate in the realms where it resides, in an effort to connect with the HigherIntelligence of which it is a part. This small booklet is but a feeble effort to facilitate such a journey.
Journey From Community Activist to Holistic Consultant
My “inner” approach to organizational development grew out of 13 years of 
experience as a director of community programs, nationally and in Harlem, NY. During thattime I was exposed to holistic
5
philosophy. I increasingly learned how important it is to
2
 
It is worthwhile to speak of one more point: concerning man's reasoning, thanks to which we find ourselvescapable of judging about what we are. This ability is due to the fact that man is the crown of creation, and thisspark was placed in him by the Crea
tor of the Universe Himself”
