Hello! I'm Cheryl a.k.a. "Ypifany" (pronounced Ee pif'' uh nee). I'm the author of "FIRING GOD" and this is my Adviceless Column.
What's an Adviceless Column? It's an advice column that doesn't deliver. Ha!! Well, not really. Here, your questions are not answered, they're "unpacked". If you have problems and want answers or solid advice then there are hundreds of folks reading and willing to give you advice. Knock yourself out.
My philosophy is, a question does not seek an answer...it hides the answer--the answer you already have. My responses are based on principles of "nonduality" as I see it. Nonduality, is simply living without dependence on fear.
Many questions can be translated as, "How can I be who I am without fear?" It's in recognizing the fear/buffer/veil that we simultaneously discover the answer that was there all along.
Ask your questions regarding relationships, child rearing, teens, divorce, health, spirituality, work, religion, financial problems, etc. Let's unpack them so you see you don't need advice.
