CLIP, CLIP, CHOP, CHOP!

Imagine you had all different sizes of metaphorical scissors. You can chop with big, broad strokes. Or you can just carefully clip here and clip there. You have more on your plate than you can successfully complete or do or even want to do. Great intentions gone wild! No problem here. Now it’s time to[…]

OUT OF WORK? PERFECT!

What a crazy thing to say, you may think. But let’s look at the choices. We could say, “This is horrible”; “This is bad for me”; “This will ruin my life”. Or we can see this – and anything else that arrives at our doorstep – as an opportunity and a way for us to[…]

DECISIONS AND CURVED SPACE

Because we are attached to outcomes, many decisions seem to be emotionally weighty for us. Suppose I make the wrong move? Suppose I don’t get what I want? Suppose someone judges me? According to the theory of curved space, if you could split an atom and send each half in the opposite direction from the[…]

Health and Healing: Exceptionality of One

HEALTH AND HEALING, THE EXCEPTIONALITY OF “ONE:” That’s you; that’s me. The data suggests certain illnesses can’t be reversed, that memory erodes as you age, that “addictions” are hard to break. Science, medicine, psychology, and sociology study what happens for most people and draw conclusions, often dismissing the exceptions. For 40 years, we’ve been champions[…]
