Dear Brothers and Sisters

I was reminded of this letter today as I was responding to an email from a wonderful new friend.  I decided to share it with her and ended up rereading it myself.   I cannot remember when I wrote this letter, but it must have been at least ten years ago.  Reading it today brought []

The World of Shoulds

We humans come to almost every encounter or situation with expectations of how it should be.  This “should” runs our lives and is one of the major sources of our suffering.  It is hard for us to be with what is; we want things to be the way we want them to be. We use []

Dear Kind Soul

I recently came across this letter I wrote many years ago and think this is a good time to share it. Dear Kind Soul, It was a striking, sunny, spring Sunday afternoon. The air was crisp and dry. A light wind was softly brushing by the sea of people milling about on the steps of []

Creating a spiritually inspired future

Is life good? In other words, is living a worthwhile experience? Does it have any value, meaning? Most people are not sure whether it is or not. Until you have a clear answer to this question, you cannot really create a spiritually inspired future for yourself or people around you. Choosing to affirm life, to []

Mirror Neurons

In a prior blog I discussed my fear of bees and how I overcame it when I realized that I was exposing my son, Leor, to my fear.  I developed this fear because I saw my sister’s terrified reaction to getting stung by a bee.   The curious thing is that I developed that fear vicariously []

11 Basic Do’s and Don’ts for Raising Children

I. Listening vs. Lecturing Children, like most of us, don’t like to be lectured. When a child does something “wrong,” the last thing he wants is to hear his parents’ authoritative voice rambling about his mistake. Children will naturally shut out their parents when they are lecturing to them. A child will respond positively to []

Empathic Civilization

Here is  link to a video which blew me away.  Aside from the fact that it is absolutely one of the most brilliant things I have seen in a long time, its message is mine verbatim:  We need to understand how we are wired and rewire ourselves so that we can have an “Empathic Civilization.” []
