Better Life?

In this week’s spotlight I would like to discuss the nature of living better. What does a better life mean to you? Is it more money, additional free time, travel, better relationships, or what? Think about this for a moment before continuing this read. I believe that most people think of a better life in terms of all those possibilities outside of themselves. Money, time, travel, possessions, relationships—these are all matters external to ourselves that we define. So think this way for a moment, what do these things really get you? Perhaps we have more money or time, but that ...

The Light Within

In this week’s spotlight I would like to address the light within. Most of you know that I am also a chaplain, so I’m going to play minister for this blog. In almost every religious/spiritual tradition the idea of the kingdom of heaven as existing within is expressed. This kingdom within is essentially the true nature of your being. Your quintessential self (seed cell or  energy/intelligence if you will) is Divine. It is an aspect of God since from singularity (God), God divided itself creating all that it is. You are therefore at your very core, a part of God. ...

What it means to surrender

In this week’s spotlight I want to explore what’s involved in surrender. Now I’m not thinking about the type of surrender that occurs on a battlefield, although it might sometimes seem like one. Rather, I’m addressing what is meant when we speak of surrendering to that which is larger than ourselves. Let me clarify that some by borrowing the words of Eckhart Tolle, “Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment . . . Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.”1 Turn it over ...

Mind Training 101

In this week’s spotlight, I want to remind everyone of just how important training your own mind is. Surprisingly, at least to me, there are many people who do not understand what it means to train your mind. Perhaps we need a beginner’s book for dummies on how to train your mind. Indeed, I think it would be a great thing for young people to encounter an illustrated version when they first begin to read, but let me flesh that out some. More Than Positive Thinking Training your mind is much more than positive thinking. That said, when I address ...

Understanding Habits

For this week’s spotlight, I chose to turn to habits. Not long ago I attended a CEU dedicated to understanding habits and addiction. The presenter shared a personal story about his own battle with weight control. From appearance sake alone, he could easily afford to lose over 100 pounds. He explained that there was a time when he was addicted to Krispy Kreme donuts. As he could eat two-dozen or more a day, he decided he could lose a lot of weight if he just gave up Krispy Kreme. This was working well for him until one day he had ...

Discussion or Argument?

In this week’s spotlight, I wish to approach the subject of disagreements. It’s not possible in today’s world to avoid coming across events, beliefs, customs, and/or moral issues, which we may not agree with. Sometimes it seems that it is also almost impossible not to engage in a disagreement, for as the adage (paraphrased some) goes, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.” That said, how we engage is also important for as Robert Quillen put it, “Discussion is an exchange of knowledge, argument an exchange of ignorance.” Engage? What are ...
