As you know, Anna, I had struggled with these same thoughts and feelings about my mother, Josie. And I wondered (and still do) as you do: You said: So, anyway, here we are. I am in the difficult situation of having a parent ask me to do things, while at the same time, insisting that he is doing them...

I wanted to give a follow up to my difficulty with my coworker. A few weeks ago, I did confront her. I asked if I could speak with her and she told me she was too busy at the moment. When I told her it would take only a minute or two, she refused. My next action really took courage. I then told her ...

Nisargadatta also said something to this effect: We can't have pleasure without pain nor can we have pain without pleasure. They follow one another in a viscious circle. I think that the human body-mind no only seeks pleasure but it also desires pain. I know of a couple of people who thrive on pain,...

To add poetry to the Einstein-quantum physics analysis. In the words of William Blake: If the doors of perception were cleansed Everything would appear to man as it is---infinite. For man has closed himself up, Till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern. From The Marriage of Heaven ...

Thank you for your advise, Stefan, about envisioning a loving conversation with my coworker. Today I read another quote by Marianne Williamson in her book A Return to Love.

Thank you, Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the 1960s, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: We are witnessing in our day the birth of a new age, with a new structure of freedom and justice. Now, as we face the fact of this new, emerging world, we must face the responsibilities that come along with it. A new age brings with it new challenges. ...

Dog eat dog

Since then I wonder why these mother dogs did so, but to this day, I still don't know and I forget to ask a vet, who could probably give me the answer. But I wonde...
