As an activist, I receive many requests for help from people who suffer from injustice or are imprisoned. Recouping lost freedom is the ultimate goal, but it is rarely achieved. However, once in a blue moon, through determination and help from others, this goal is met.

I went on a spiritual journey and realized devoting my present to a moment in the past is unhealthy. There are too many problems continuing in the world at large, much less the world around me. I'm too powerful to stand still waiting on the world to change.

We all want to freely chart our own destiny, even if the pathway there is full of risk and uncertainty. We want to freely express our ideas, thoughts, and beliefs without unnecessary pretense and judgment. We simply want the freedom to honor our spirit in each given moment.

To date, only presidents have fallen from power during the Arab Awakening -- no king has fallen from his throne. Arab monarchies are of course not immune to the forces that brought down some of their republican counterparts, so why have they all thus far survived?

Freedom of Mind applies to us more than we might assume at first glance. Freedom is something many of us take for granted. We don't always help it stay alive or grow through examining our actions as a country or our thought processes as individuals.

Ed and Deb Shapiro

When we appreciate the beauty of kindness, it takes us out of such self-centeredness; it enables us to let go of self-centeredness and to freely reach out to each other. We can both give and receive. Such egoless moments are exquisite!

Meredith Hutchison

It is my right to exercise free speech and it is the government's duty to uphold that right. So, what are my minimum duties as an American to my government, my nation, and my fellow citizens, and how do I know those are my duties?

What Is a Liberal?

Geoffrey R. Stone | Posted 03.26.2013 | Politics
Geoffrey R. Stone

For most of the past four decades, "liberals" have been in retreat. In many quarters, the word "liberal" has become a pejorative. Part of the problem is that liberals have failed to define themselves and to state clearly what they believe.

Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben, Ph.D. | Posted 03.13.2013 | Religion
Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben, Ph.D.

One of my frustrations almost daily as a rabbi is to see so many who still live like our ancestors in Egypt. They are fearful to have a vision of their lives that exalts them and could set them free.

Jennifer Hamady

If you're struggling -- if you're feeling out of, or the need for, control -- it's less likely that something's wrong with the object of your desires, and more likely that there's something you've been unwilling to give up in order get what it is you say you want.

Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez

It was in this way that we came to realize my liberal emotion attached to "tolerance for differences" was best communicated to a conservative as "personal freedom," which in turn was best communicated to a liberal as "independence."

It was also an America with a real moral compass that was based on high ideals rather than extremist beliefs. That was an America with both brains and heart, and with the essence of Rocky. So where is that America now, and how can we find it again?
