To Take or to Give

There seems to be a lot of conversation these days about the so-called “entitled ones.” Indeed, like a label designed to besmirch certain groups or ideas, “entitlement” is used to demean many social welfare programs just as “Tea Party” is used to belittle and categorize certain conservatives Part of my research involves evaluating positioning methods used to frame arguments and people and I have therefore invested a great deal of thought on labels. Recently, I had an experience that gave rise to a realization. Let me flesh that out some. A few days ago, I was treated for a rotator ...

Personal Best: Prosperity Power

One of my early lessons in life came as the result of a question I asked of a minister. In all teenage pomp and wisdom, I interrupted the man and suggested that his statement, “All men are equal,” was obviously unmitigated rubbish — a bald face lie! Unlike most who might have simply dismissed my arrogant query with words such as, “In the eyes of God — all men are created equal in the eyes of God,” he quite calmly asked me to imagine two men — the first, a rocket scientist who after much work launches an interstellar voyager. ...

The Subtraction Game

It is a natural human characteristic to desire a certain quality of life. As such, it is fair to ask, What is quality of life? Most, when thoughtful, consider quality of life to include at least the following three characteristics: 1) absence of fear, 2) loving relationships (support), and 3) fulfillment of necessities (food, water, shelter, and health care). Contrast these desired characteristics with the typical self-image, and a couple of issues immediately emerge. First among them is the fear generated within ourselves over the risk of exposure or rejection. Next, the distance generated between people when genuine and total ...

The Diminished Retributive God

More and more people today profess to be atheist or agnostic. Those who claim to have no religious affiliation have grown from 15 percent to 20 percent of our population in just the past five years. Today, some 6 percent, or more 13 million Americans, claim to be either atheist or agnostic, and 14 percent, or nearly 33 million people, say they have no particular religious affiliation. The new age movement has also cut into organized religions traditional role. Wiki defines new age this way: The New Age movement is a Western spiritual movement that developed in the second half of the 20th century. ...

Hiding From Others… and From Ourselves

Robert Bly’s A Little Book on the Human Shadow is a great book that adds yet another dimension to the notion of the so-called dark side of the human being. Carl Jung referred to this dark side as the human shadow. Although Jung may have given it the name, the idea is much older, dating back as far as human history. Often, the dark side is personified in literature, none of which is more illustrative of the dark potential than the classic tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In my book, Mind Programming, the name I used to refer ...

Victim or Freedom

One important element in the notion of personal freedom is self-responsibility. It may go unnoticed today, but so long as one remains dependent upon blaming another for their misfortunes, they effectively have tied themselves up. There is nothing they can do about it but get even. Thus the bumper sticker, “I don’t get even, I get evener.” The fact is, blame is a bind that wraps us from one end to another as though we had been literally tied up. Blame says, “There’s nothing I could do — it was done to me.” Blames informs us that we’re just pawns ...
