From Volume 14, Issue 3:Everybody’s entitled to their opinion, right?
From Volume 13, Issue 11:Twenty-five years ago I read Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations with God, a very interesting series of books written as the author sorted out his life and the lives of those around him through dialogs he had with God.
One specific idea I recall was that “wanting” was to be avoided because all it ever left you with was… well …wanting. He considered it a condition of human suffering, constantly wanting and never being satisfied.
From Volume 14, Issue 1:In my work over the past 20 years or so, I’ve paid a lot of attention to “employee engagement.” Not side-stepping the profession of companies and software tools that quantify that, I’ve looked more at whether or not an employee cares about his environment (the company and its goals, the people around him, those who supervise him, and who he supervises, etc.).
From Volume 13, Issue 9:Many health professionals will tell you that staying appropriately hydrated (by drinking 64 to 100 ounces of water per day) is critical to one’s all-around health.
The thing about hydrating is that it’s a process: water in, water out, water back in….
From Volume 13, Issue 8:A narrative is a story, right? And I believe we tend to use stories to describe things.
Sometimes it’s things that have happened to us and sometimes it’s things that have happened to others. Sometimes our narratives are developed from personal experience, and sometimes they are inherited from others who influence us, like our parents, teachers, coaches, spiritual advisers, etc. Sometimes these narratives even come unsolicited from the world around us: through news media, social media, books, and articles we read.
From Volume 13, Issue 7:I have a problem with the word “love.” It can mean so many things that I consider it a relatively unclear term. “I love you” and “I love you too” gets repeated over and over again in a ritual that couples execute on a regular basis. But what do they mean?
From Volume 13, Issue 4:I’m as sure as I can be that, in one of the hundreds of these missives I’ve cranked out over the past 12 years, I’ve offered a concept or an idea or an opinion that simply didn’t agree with how you see the world. Perhaps I even upset you… riled you up… pissed you off. I often do that if for no other reason than to get my reader to think about a subject from a different perspective.
