Caring for a Loved One

The critical aspect of becoming a caregiver, therefore, is not deciding to take on the role, should we choose to do so. It is making the choice to care; accepting the responsibility, surrendering to it, and even embracing it as an opportunity.

Are You Caring for a Loved One With Dementia? Try Mindfulness.

Marguerite Manteau-Rao | Posted 03.22.2016 | Healthy Living
Marguerite Manteau-Rao

Love is supposed to be reciprocal. What happens when our loved one stops showing us the love we have been conditioned to expect, when they meet our gaze with indifference, or when they tell us to go to hell? Dementia is an invitation for us to discover the true meaning of unconditional love, using mindfulness and loving kindness as gateway practices.

Having been so long stung by the ingredients of war -- oppression, intolerance, hatred, violence -- Syrians need healing, not just for their bodies. They need a signal that the world is not indifferent, that we see them, and we can name their pain and suffering.

One of the Nation's Largest Catholic Hospital Systems Says It Can Deny Women Emergency Care Because of Its Religious Affiliation

I suppose it shouldn't really have come as a surprise. But there it was in black and white in a recent court document: Trinity Health, one of the largest health care systems, saying that because of religious exemption laws, its Catholic affiliation allows it to violate the law and refuse to provide pregnant women with emergency medical care.

How many opportunities to be part of something meaningful do you miss because your attention is being frittered away on the meaningless? It's nice to listen to music on your trip to work, but if you're doing so because you believe there is nothing worthwhile happening in your world, then you are sorely mistaken.
