It’s Time For Change In Our Political Process by Dick Rauscher

When the religious ideology of any particular faith presumes to speak with authority or impose its religious beliefs or ideologies on those who do not hold those same religious views, it only breeds division, bigotry, hatred, repression, and violence; a very dangerous way to determine social and economic policy for a nation or the world; especially in the 21st century.

A healthy religion, and it's spiritual teachings, should manifest values based on love, compassion, mutuality, diversity, tolerance, and inclusiveness; "not" on the social ethics and morality of ancient ethno-centric cultures that passed into the fog of history thousands of years ago.

Getting Started With NLP - Part 1

In my experience there are several factors that can prevent people from getting what they want in their lives, whether in business or in other areas:

- Lack of clear goal & evidence
- Not addressing the benefits of the current situation (aka. secondary gain)
- Familiarity of the current situation (a particularly sneaky benefit)
- Lack of belief and/or limiting beliefs

Breathe deeply, love deeply, live deeply

Breathing is one of life's most basic necessities. Adults take in an average of almost 25,000 breaths each day, and that's just at rest. While it's true that most of us don't stop to think about the breathing we do each day, it's important to recognize the health benefits of doing so. Take in a breath right now. It comes so naturally, doesn't it? You may not realize that you can greatly improve the way you feel inside and out, just by consciously controlling how you breathe, for even as little as an hour each day.

When you breathe in the air around you, your lungs transfer the oxygen into your blood. This oxygen is necessary for life's building block, our cells, to live and create within us. When you breathe out, carbon dioxide and other metabolic wastes are removed from the blood and back out into the air. For those with impaired respiratory function, such as cardiac patients or asthma sufferers, the result of improper breathing is a catastrophic build-up of toxins and extremely low levels of oxygen in the blood. The good news is that even those of us with impaired respiration can benefit from intentionally controlling our breathing.

Self Hypnosis The Trance Induction by Shawn Carson + video

This articles lays out the benefits of self hypnosis and the techniques for going into a trance. Self hypnosis is taught to all of our clients and nlp training students in New York who enjoy the benefits of being able to go into trance whenever they want or need

Why learn self hypnosis? Things can make us feel overwhelmed. During the past week I was working on my personal tax return as well as several client projects. The financial markets were in melt down and my wife was fretting over the beating our investments were taking. One of my colleagues called me with some outrageous demand on my time I felt like screaming at him. However I was able to use self hypnosis to relax, refocus and respond in a calmer and more resourceful way!

Hypnosis by Jim Francis

Most of us have a set of unique fears that relate to our own lives, like concerns about loved ones, financial worries and so on; but there are also many “universal” fears – or perhaps you might call them “collective” fears – that are communicated to us through our environment. These fears often relate to situations and events that leave us feeling vulnerable and defenseless, such as worldwide 'pandemics', 'terrorist' attacks, economic and financial crises, and so on.

Religious Hatred Can Be Ended by Dr Andrew Cort

Americans and Iraqis were killing each other in the Middle East. Several young men in Pakistan murdered their own sister yesterday because they decided her choice of a singing career was sinful. A man is on the run from the police in Connecticut after murdering a Wesleyan College student and threatening Jews and other people that he hates. Jews and Palestinians continue to kill each other in the Holy Land. A man in Brockton, MA, my home town, appeared in court today for his arraignment on a murder charge: while waiting in jail, he carved a swastika on his forehead in order to clarify whom he hates and thinks should die.

Why We Fear Honesty by Julia Austin

Life would be so much easier if everyone just said what was on their mind. It could be more painful, but we would get things done quicker and get to the bottom of things sooner. Instead, we put tons of energy into finding a more polite way to say everything--into not offending people and keeping up a certain image. And while it's sweet to consider the feelings of others when we talk, some honesty goes down the drain when we don't just speak our mind.
