Happiness is the result of all of your impressions, your experiences, and your actions from the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to sleep. Happiness is a boomerang effect of your lifestyle, where your thoughts, your energy and your actions are all synchronized and act as one.

There are plenty of homes in which uneven power relationships are serious problems. But a system of carefully balanced power dynamics is only a "floor" of ethical marriage and family relationships, not a "ceiling." It's a bare minimum, not the ideal. Oh, there is so much more!

Donald Trump's Endgame

FOX and the Republican elites have been playing the long game in the shadows. They thought they had their men in Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. What they didn't foresee was a celebrity billionaire with nothing to lose. Trump was also playing the long-game except right out in the open for all to see.

The Life-Changing Lessons I Learned From Chronic Pain

Anna Lovind | Posted 08.05.2015 | Healthy Living
Anna Lovind

I don't like asking for help. Who does? It brings out all those uncomfortable feelings of vulnerability, loss of independence, of being a burden. It requires a level of honesty and trust I have not mastered before. Haven't yet, truth to be told. But I'm getting there, because pain makes sure I get to practice.

The Not-So-Secret Reason Why Women Lack Political Power

Charlotte Hill | Posted 07.17.2015 | Politics
Charlotte Hill

When these economic elites are predominantly male -- the names of Jeb Bush's super PAC donors read like a bachelor party guest list -- this means that American public policy is disproportionately influenced by men. Decisions about whether to prioritize issues like paid sick leave, affordable child care, birth control access and equal pay are not ultimately made by the people they impact most: women.

While differences on all matter of doctrine abound among Christians, the exclusion of women from ordination isn't simply one more theological difference. Rather, it is a form of misogyny masquerading in the guise of Biblical and theological integrity.

I've known Taylor Wilson from a distance for several years, from a time many lifetimes ago when I was working as a journalist covering the nuclear power industry. He's not a kid anymore, but when he was 14 years old Wilson decided to build a nuclear reactor in his parents' home.
