The Extent of Fatherlessness

More than 20 million children live in a home without the physical presence of a father. Millions more have dads who are physically present, but emotionally absent. If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency. The impact of fatherlessness can be seen in our homes, schools, hospitals and prisons, as reflected in the above clip from the documentary film, Irreplaceable. In short, fatherlessness is associated with almost every … [Read more...]

Recalibration of Self, Lee Carroll

Energy - A Misunderstood Concept Energy by itself is very difficult to define or explain. Often, when Humans talk about energy, it is that which pulsates linearly through wires in a multi-phase system, such as your electricity. That's not what we're talking about. The energy we speak of is not singular information. It is not three-dimensional, but rather it is a multidimensional attribute all around you of a confluence of Earth and consciousness and it brings about that which you call … [Read more...]

April celebrates ‘JAM’, Jazz Appreciation Month

What a fantastic idea! Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) ... a whole month dedicated to the celebration of jazz as something to treasure as part of our past, and present. Jazz is a genre of music that originated in African American communities during the late 19th and early 20th century. It emerged in many parts of the United States in the form of independent popular musical styles, all linked by the common bonds of African American and European American musical parentage with a performance … [Read more...]

Here is Your Prescription…, Larry James

On the hit TV show, "Elementary," Sherlock, after lots of banter back and forth with his shrink, his psychiatrist abruptly said, "Hour's up!" and handed him a prescription. It read, "Make one new friend before next week." Friendship is a good thing, however, somehow we all forget how important it is. A friend is someone you know well and care about, who also knows and cares about you. We need more people like this in our lives. Great friendships improve all aspects of our lives. When you … [Read more...]

Celebrating Valentine’s Day: What is LOVE?

What is LOVE? ... a question of the ages. Psychology Today says: "Love is a force of nature. However much we may want to, we can not command, demand, or take away love, any more than we can command the moon and the stars and the wind and the rain to come and go according to our whims. We may have some limited ability to change the weather, but we do so at the risk of upsetting an ecological balance we don't fully understand. Similarly, we can stage a seduction or mount a courtship, but the … [Read more...]

When YOU Stop Paying Attention, Larry James

When You Stop Paying Attention to Your Marriage… It begins to fall apart. Slowly at first. Then the consistent lack of attention begins to gain momentum until the divorce papers are served and you're shocked! You ponder, "I should have known."

LOVE like an Albatross, Larry James

The word 'albatross' is sometimes used metaphorically to mean a psychological burden that feels like a curse. It is an allusion to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (1798). In the poem, an albatross starts to follow a ship - being followed by an albatross was generally considered an omen of good luck. However, the titular mariner shoots the albatross with a crossbow, which is regarded as an act that will curse the ship (which indeed suffers terrible … [Read more...]

Source of all Creation, The Daily Love

Nothing Is Impossible When You Have Faith by Mastin Kipp When you expand your thinking and beliefs, your love flows freely. When you contract, you shut yourself off.

It’s with you for the rest of your life, so you want to make it the best relationship that you can have. Whenever I see … [Read more...]

Shadows of the Past, Larry James

Shadows of the past are our out-dated precepts and ideas that serve no one. They are our preconceived notions about how we think things should be, should turn out or how things are. They cast their dreary shadow between ourselves and all that is good. We must steadily move closer to the realization that our outer-circumstances are not something to be resolved but rather look upon them as inner-conditions to be acknowledged and understood. We can never see the fullness of the Light while … [Read more...]

Our Resolution: Normalize compassion, Radicalize brutality. Like every year, it seems, 2014 was full of ... the 'darkest tragedy and the brightest hope'.
