It’s called forgiveness to fit into a prophecy that Jesus chose to fulfill. Turn the other cheek is something Jews, most Jews in antiquity, could not do. But Jesus wasn’t only a Jew. If they had DNA testing back then, but they didn’t, so the story goes as copied from ear to ear, until somebody […]

Start off slow and keep a steady forward moving process until you reach an optimal level and balance with all else in your life. Go easy with it. Allow yourself ups […]
Every Palestinian in the Middle East is currently sitting on HOLOCAUST ROW.
I shouldn’t. I know I shouldn’t. Sound familiar? Why wait to learn a lesson by making a mistake? Learn it before the mistake to eliminate the suffering mistakes create. Do you like chaos that much? Flirting with fate? Throwing caution to the wind that you know full well is unpredictable? You know that going in. […]
The cycle of prejudice moves from one group to another never solving the problem, just moving it. Revenge is what’s on everybody’s mind, not growth and progress. Prejudice doesn’t happen in a vacuum without willing participants at some level of engagement. I’ve seen it happen in affordable housing. Management begins to take liberties for their […]

Most people want a president who speaks off-the-cuff, a brainstorming president, a person who says what’s on their mind, a president who doesn’t hide their personal thoughts by speaking from a script prepared by agents of the government, as did previous presidents in modern history. After all, the ones left in place when the politicians […]
Many of those who demand compassion from others have no compassion toward anyone except their own group or demographic. Selective compassion creates chaos and mistrust.
Communism is dead – because it worked in theory ONLY, not practice. Large parts of the world practiced it and large parts of the world suffered as a result. Only a tiny elite, ruling minority prospered under their own rule, which in essence made them a dictatorship by committee. If you call yourselves a democracy […]
It’s time to redefine Calm for those who accepted a definition they didn’t understand. Chaos – Calm – Calm – Chaos. The edge of calm. Which edge? This side? Or the other side? The line is thin. Which way do I cross to be on the right side? Without a compass? How will I know? That which repels or […]
Everything in life wasn’t meant to come easy or even naturally. Work, hard work, is an integral part of challenging us to do and be better. Always giving way to what is most comfortable or taking the path of least resistance is seen as hedonistic – selfish. As long as we live among other animals, […]
Some people have a need to create chaos. They function at their optimal levels (they think) when in flux. The problem here is that by being in flux all the time, they force others they encounter to experience their dramas with them. It’s like an ongoing play with no intermissions. Steering clear or responding in […]
