Forgiveness is a gift to yourself. It frees you from the past, past experiences, and past relationships. It allows you to live in present time. When you forgive yourself and forgive others, you are indeed free.

The Protagonist

Christine Hoh

When you are a supporting character of your own life and you let others be the protagonist, you'll look back and see that there is nothing left. But when you take ownership and be grateful in your own skin and lead with the giving heart, then you are THE protagonist of your own life. Your feet will be grounded.

Inside the President's Review Group: Protecting Security and Liberty

Geoffrey R. Stone | Posted 02.20.2014 | Politics
Geoffrey R. Stone

The use of government surveillance to protect the nation against terrorist attack is deeply polarizing. On the one hand, there are those who fervently defend everything the Intelligence Community does. How, they ask, in the light of 9/11, can anyone want to handcuff the Intelligence Community in its critical effort to protect our nation against potentially catastrophic terrorist attacks? It is reckless and irresponsible, they charge, for anyone to restrain the government from taking every possible measure to help to keep us safe. Have you forgotten the lessons of history? On the other side, the critics of the NSA and of what they see as rampant and unrestrained government spying charge that any intrusion into individual privacy is a fundamental infringement of core American values. The NSA, they insist, is a rogue agency that is trampling on core American freedoms. No government agency can be trusted! Have you forgotten the lessons of history?

Until you and I detach from all things, until we can let go of the illusion of control, we remain incarcerated, as it were, incapable of knowing the "abundant life" as Jesus called it -- which explains much of the division that is our world.

Nelson Mandela -- The End of an Era

It is unfortunate that injustice, subjugation and many levels of cruelty generate wonderful men. We have to find a way to generate such men when there is no strife, subjugation or injustice. We should incubate such men in joy and in celebration.

23andGUVMT -- Health and Safety or What? An Antiestablishment Perspective

In effect, the argument the FDA makes is that people are too ignorant or irresponsible to have access to information about their own body. This is the heart of the issue, and it is a troubling argument.

Are Human Rights Compatible with Islamic Values?

Unfortunately, the word of God is lost in the language of cultural interpretations, which fails to understand the Islamic perspective in realizing that discrimination and bias are counterproductive to equity and justice.

Nelson Mandela's Lesson on Love

Mandela became our conscience. He transcended race and class. His thought was on the collective, not his individual pain. He was an authentic leader who never claimed to be perfect. His is a story of transformation, from militant freedom fighter to peacemaker.

My eyes filled with tears thinking about the many miracles that had to transpire to make this moment possible: a young nation imperfectly fighting its way toward a more perfect union, expanding circles of freedom, a deep commitment to religious liberty and diversity.

What haunts me most is not the countless studies that document the inhumane treatment of animals or the research by the Environmental Working Group that established that each ounce of turkey consumed has the carbon footprint of driving a mile in a car.
