Blessed With and From Pain

Why Pain Years ago when in the flat lands of central Eurasia, known in American grade-school text books as the steppes, I stood at the side of one of Russia’s superhighways, smooth and sleek like a well curried horse showing its muscles and tendons through the flesh of this flawless roadway. Women from several nearby farms, competitors for market share in a now capitalistic society, hardly knew how to conduct business in a country recovering from several generations of communism where the state took care of all that. With the Berlin Wall...

Human Ego in the Spiritual Journey

Where is the Human Ego in the Spiritual Journey? No matter what the religious tradition, accolades, trust, fame and inspiration go to those who don’t talk much about themselves. Perhaps the reason some people don’t speak much about themselves is because they have learned to decentralize.They have lived beyond the need to talk about themselves. There are certain rules of the spiritual life that have been established for hundreds, even thousands of years. One of the time honored rules is related to our recognition of the Whole, a spiritual...

Compelling stories that open the heart

Something New Is in the Air Do you remember that when you were a child your mother would cook or bake something she rarely made or even had never made before for dinner or to snack on? I remember several memorable things my mother made. One was banana fritters. She felt they were too greasy and I thought they were the best thing ever. But that was after the war was over—World War II that is! Another thing she enjoyed making was chocolate brownies, but they were proof that she loved chocolate. During the war when food was rationed, she somehow...

Can Business Be A Vision Pointing to the Future?

Can Business Be A Vision Pointing to the Future Is there a connection between visions of the future and what humans do in the present? Is there some kind of affiliation between the positive directing of ideas and visions of the future and creating probable actions in the human system? Business is one of the social pillars that humanity now has to use to create a positive future. While the same is also true of politics, religion, education and science, business also has its place in bringing on a positive future as we labor to lift ourselves...

Let Bees Be

Let Bees Be

Let Bees Be You may have been saddened to find a dead bee on the ground. In the last several years I have found quite a few and I am troubled that people keep using pesticides that kill bees. We are told that pesticides are the culprit, but part of the trouble lies with the human value scheme and the lack of understanding that without the bees we would starve. Bees pollinate the flowers that become the food we eat. We depend on vegetables for life and good nutrition. There are relatively few pollinators around. Moths, birds, bats and...

Building a United Humanity

Building a United Humanity People all over the world seek meaningful answers to war, violence, the hazardous displacement of people, and racial injustice and persecution. Hundreds of thousands—maybe even millions–want to be free to express the love of their hearts. Whether these people are in the Middle East, Africa, Asia or even in Turkey, Greece or the United States of America, they are due our deep consideration, love and care. It is time to be pro-active about honoring human rights for all of humanity. In the US there is tragic and...

The Immensity of Forgiveness

The Immensity of Forgiveness The day is coming when racial prejudice will be a thing of the past. That is the direction humanity is moving and toward which every incarcerated person of color points, whether we see or understand it or not at the moment. In the meantime there are people of every color in America who are prepared, trained and willing to lead us out of the Armageddon of racially based penal confinement. Imagine that there are people around us who love so deeply that they are motivated to act from their own center of love for the...

The Movement of Evolution

The Last Chess Piece – The Movement of Evolution “Honor the highest truth in the universe; it is the power on which all things depend: it is the light by which the whole of life is guided. Honor the Highest within yourself: For it too is the power on which all things depend and the light by which the whole of life is guided.” –Marcus Aurelius, from “Meditations” The best answer to the hatred, chaos, wars, climate change, economic uncertainty, the faltering of democracy and the ugliness and cruelty of mass incarceration, lies in...

The Power of Nature

Have you ever considered why being in nature is so important to us, why it makes us listen, and what feeling it elicits? In his book of essays, The Great Work, Thomas Berry, a cultural historian, discusses being in nature and points out that the most important qualities that humans respond to are awe, joy and reverence. Berry puts his hand on the sensitive pulse of life as he notes that these feelings open us to all the life on the Earth and somehow it changes us for the better. Once humans developed language, they probably sat around a fire...
