What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain | Posted 07.29.2014 | Religion
Umar Zulqarnain

Strength is to let go, to let be, to simply exist. Strength is to know that we are nothing and that we have no strength. It is to know that strength is in God and is not acquired but provided.

What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain

We try to display ourselves as strong, independent beings, as confident and un-phased by the events around us. In reality, it is often a show, a facade, a cry for attention rather than an element of fortitude.

When was the last time you challenged your own beliefs? When I work with couples to design their wedding ceremonies, I always ask them how they were raised in terms of religion and spirituality and where they are now in those terms in their lives.

Just as the religions of the past are today's myths and the tribal religions of the present are seen as primitive to modern society, the religions of today will be the primitive myths of tomorrow.

Put On Your Armor of God

Antoinette Tuff

Here is how I've learned to control how I react: I take a pause and put on the armor of God. Reacting emotionally means we are allowing the situation, or other people, to dictate how we feel and how we act. And if we do that, we will never come out of a bad situation victorious.

I've Never Met an Atheist or a Religious Believer

Frank Schaeffer

Which "me" should be running the show? We're all in the closet, so to speak. We barely come out to ourselves and never completely to others. I've never met an unequivocal atheist or religious believer.

Lorna Byrne

Looking at the Syrian crisis now, we may not, humanly, be able to see a solution. That's why we need to pray. Prayer is so powerful. All our prayers count. Your prayer may be the one that makes the difference.

I'm still a radical, political queer and Kristyne is still a conservative, Catholic girl, and I am so happy that we were able to work together, despite our differences, to produce EastSiders.

The Mind Of God

Maria Portas

It's time to be blown away by the Greatness that surrounds us. It is time to tap into that Mind that lives in and through us, and listen to what it is telling us. Our potential is here!

The Beginner's Mind and the Mind of God

Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman | Posted 06.11.2014 | Religion
Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman

We human beings don't experience the world as it is -- we experience the world through the filter of our minds. How we look at and think about the world informs the way we act in it, which then informs the way both religion and science are practiced.

iDietology: Why I'm Fed Up, and You Should Be, Too

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 06.07.2014 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

Radical fervor and echo chamber distortions do quite enough damage to our world without populating our kitchen tables. Be fed up, as I am, with such nonsense -- and we will all wind up eating better.

Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman | Posted 05.27.2014 | Religion
Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman

Both religion and science often tend to present themselves as "knowing everything." Yet in both realms, there is an enormous amount we don't know, an...

10 Beliefs That Are Holding You Back

Amandah Blackwell | Posted 05.04.2014 | Healthy Living
Amandah Blackwell

You may not want to disappoint those closest to you, but it is your life. When you don't change, you keep doing the same thing over and over, perhaps expecting a different result. Albert Einstein referred to this as the definition of insanity. You're not insane, are you?

Compassion, Culture and Belief

Compassion puts you directly in touch with the human condition. It cuts through beliefs. It goes straight to the heart.

Is Following Your Religion a Good Way to Live?

Dirk Hughes | Posted 04.20.2014 | Religion
Dirk Hughes

Faith is not reserved for the religious, nor does any religion have a monopoly on it. To the contrary, at one level, faith is a common and important psychological coping mechanism used every moment of our lives to allow us to function as normally as possible.

As a youngster with an Orthodox Jewish background and an interest in mathematics, an infinite God with infinite power who lived an infinite amount of time fascinated me. I felt that studying "infinity" would help me understand God.

They are drawn to take the journey toward individuation rather than individualism, and for many, that journey is not just a progression toward a healthy ego--invaluable as that is in itself--but also an opening to the transcendent dimensions of human experience.

The True Meaning of Christmas

Staks Rosch

Jesus obviously isn't the reason for the season. So what is? Many atheists joke that the reason for the season is the tilt of the Earth's axis. That's funny and all, but it only goes one level deeper than the Christian view. Here is the godless honest truth.

Jay Parini offers us in less than 200 pages a warm, bold, strong, well-written historical biography of Jesus Christ. No kidding. It is probably the most reliable biography on Christ written for a century or two.
