Sleep Deprivation, The Edge of Sanity and Breaking Through Resistance

Sarah Alford | Posted 04.11.2016 | Women
Sarah Alford

My story is not about depression. Nor is about parenting methods or in fact sleep deprivation. It is about how we sometimes resist making decisions in our lives because of beliefs we have bought into or stories we have told ourselves that hold us back from achieving new possibilities.

We stand on the brink of undreamed exploitation of children as instruments of war, killing and worse. It is time to carefully teach the next generation to appreciate and honor those distinctions that make humans unique.

You'll Follow Your Beliefs

Margaret Marshall | Posted 03.22.2016 | Healthy Living
Margaret Marshall

In my childhood, my nickname was, "Margaret, Margaret, the big fat target!" Today I can laugh, but for many years I cried about it. What's interesting is, during all the years I cried about it, I also believed it. As long as I believed it, I lived it.

How to Believe in What You Write

William Kenower | Posted 03.17.2016 | Books
William Kenower

I used to think of "reality" as what I could see and taste and touch -- the stuff that has already been made and that everyone agrees exists. The more serious I became about my writing, the more impractical this concept of reality became.

Kevin Wright

I don't mean "acquaintances" or Facebook friends, but my actual -- call you up on a bad day/let's have brunch on Saturday/help me, I'm nervous about this date -- friends. Perhaps this wouldn't sound so weird except that I'm a minister who works for a church.

Connor Wood

First, we're not dealing with what philosophers call "first-order" problems, like whether God exists or why bad things happen to good people. Instead, we're studying the cultural, cognitive, and ritual processes that undergird religion and culture.

Mere Belief

J. H. McKenna, Ph.D. | Posted 02.18.2017 | Religion
J. H. McKenna, Ph.D.

Religious intolerance arose with presumptions of certainty: the sureness that my sect possesses certified knowledge means that I cannot endure your sect's evident error. If it had always been accepted that belief does not rise to the level of knowledge, religious intolerance might not have marred our histories.

Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel

The phrase "Allahu Akbar" is commonly used by Muslims to remind themselves of God's vastness and power. Unfortunately, some Muslim extremists employ this phrase before performing acts of terror, leading many to associate "Allahu Akbar" with violence and destruction.

Parochial Prayer: A Call for Students to Claim Their Power

KidSpirit | Posted 02.08.2017 | Religion
KidSpirit

I have been raised in an observant conservative Jewish household, and I frequently wrestle with daily prayer, which is very familiar to me. Therefore, I can readily see how a less observant student, without a regular relationship to a prayer experience outside of school, could find services onerous when thrust upon them in school.
