Questions? Avoid the Mysteries? Or Question Again?

We can be very interesting creatures at times—us homo sapien sapiens. We hear of the church choir that did not show up for rehearsal the night the church was struck by lightening and burnt to the ground. We listen intently as we learn that of the eight people who never missed a practice in years, all eight for different pressing reasons unknown to each other, failed to be inside that burning church where they most certainly would have perished if they had attended the scheduled practice like always. It was a miracle. God intervened and kept the faithful home, we ...

The Anomalies in Life

This week I wish to bring your attention to those seemingly small miracles that we often miss in our lives. Let me begin with a story. One night as I drifted off to sleep, I reflected on unexplained events in my life and wondered, What does that mean? The next morning as I dressed, I heard someone on the television in the next room saying, “It’s amazing. The window washer fell 500 feet, and he lived. That story and more, next.” I asked myself, What does that mean? What does it mean to the window washer? What Does That Mean? ...

This week I wish to discuss self-sabotage. Most people are totally unaware that they are sometimes controlled by internal mechanisms that are designed to protect, but that actually function to sabotage certain goals in their lives. The fact is, all of us possess self-destructive elements that can manifest at any time and in a variety of ways. This not-so-silent enemy within usually remains in stealth mode despite its repeated pattern of interference with our own self-declared desires. Definitions Psychologists define self-destructive patterns this way. “Behavior is said to be self-sabotaging when it creates problems and interferes with long-standing goals. The most ...

Dreams Within Dreams: Joy in a Joyous Season

In today’s spotlight I wish to take a moment to reflect on the nature of joy. Happiness is defined as: “Pleasure, joy, exhilaration, bliss, contentedness, delight, enjoyment, and satisfaction. Happiness, bliss, contentment—and felicity which implies an active or passive state of pleasure or pleasurable satisfaction.” Given that definition, one might think that joy and happiness are synonymous—is there a difference? Joy as the Highest Form of Happiness I think many people find happiness to be a relative measure—happy verses unhappy. Often the answer to the question, “Are you happy?” is weighted by our relationships, our work, and our inner life. ...

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss the nature of ingratitude. Just last week I discussed the principle and power behind gratitude, but what about ingratitude? What is it and does it matter? Most of us think of someone who takes our efforts or gifts for granted, and this is our example of ingratitude, but there is another more important form that I want to focus our attention on today—and that is the all too common nature of how we take for granted all of those ordinary things we have come to expect as just our normal state of ...

Hurtful Words Damage the Brain

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss the power of words on our brains. We all remember the old adage, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Well the fact is, this old stale saying is not only false on its face, but research has shown that words can indeed physically alter your brain. Words that Change Neuroscientists Andrew Newberg and Mark Robert Waldman have observed changes in the brain due to the words we use, including those that arise in our thoughts. Think of that for a minute. Words like peace and ...
