Anchored by Hope

In this week’s spotlight I would like to address optimism. We have all heard about the power of intention and positive thinking. Optimism is comprised of both but for it to have any real value, it must also maintain a realistic perspective, it must be reasonable. Reasonable optimism is anchored by hope! Hopeless/Helpless The opposite of optimism is of course, pessimism. In the affairs of the mind, pessimism can lead to helpless/hopeless feelings that literally decimate our own self-healing faculties. Indeed, as a number of animal experiments have shown, when it seems that there is no escape, no hope, animals ...

Unrealistic Expectations

In this week’s spotlight I wish to draw your attention to unrealistic expectations. I have enjoyed recent opportunities to visit with some people of the younger generation about a variety of matters, ranging from apparel fashions to personal responsibility. There is one conclusion that I can absolutely forward, and that is: the media largely informs their ideas and attitudes, and that definitely includes their entertainment. Free or Unrealistic There are many unrealistic expectations among most people, not just our younger generation. Some of these expectations may not truly be ‘unrealistic,’ and yet, often they are more utopian than pragmatic in ...

Hard-Wired for Spirituality

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss spirituality and the brain. I posted a new study last week on my Facebook page regarding spiritual retreats. The article’s title tells us that spiritual retreats change feel-good chemical systems in the brain. Now that should come as no surprise to those of you who follow my posts or catch our show Provocative Enlightenment. I have shared several conversations that I have enjoyed with researchers covering varying brain changes that occur as a result of meditation and other spiritual practices. Indeed, the author of the article I posted, Dr. Andrew Newberg, and ...

A Treasure of Miracles

In this week’s spotlight I wish to consider a special anomaly, one that many people have experienced, one that challenges the materialistic view of life, and that is the nature of miracles. On Monday of this week I read a CNN story about an eight-year-old boy named J.T.  who claims an angel helped him lift a car from his father’s chest. CNN reported the story this way: It happened last summer while Stephen Parker and his sons, J.T. and 17 year-old Mason, were working on a Toyota Prius at their home in Sugar City, Idaho, according to EastIdahoNews.com. Mason had ...

Vault 7

In this week’s spotlight I would like to discuss trust—specifically in our government. Last week I spent two hours with George Noory on Coast-to-Coast AM discussing the Vault 7 Wikileaks release of some of the things in the CIA’s hacking toolbox. In my book, Gotcha! The Subordination of Free Will, I covered many of the tools available to our intelligence agencies. I also spent thousands of words sharing some of the very many atrocious studies that had been carried out on innocent American citizens in the name of security. There are well known abuses such as the work conducted under ...

Why Gratitude?

This week I wish to draw attention to the notion of gratitude. For years I have taught what has become referred to as the four-corner philosophy for self-fulfillment. Those four corners include forgiveness, gratitude, self-responsibility, and service; but today I wish to focus on gratitude. Specifically, what is the purpose of having a gratitude attitude? Gratitude is something that typically is the topic of pastors and counselors. However, there is a growing body of science that is beginning to show the many benefits available as a result of a gratitude attitude. Emotion Gratitude is an emotion that reduces anxiety and ...
