I just saw a special on Showtime, staring former Saturday Night Live performer Julia Sweeney called, Letting Go of God. She brilliantly executed the nearly two-hour one-woman show. Her revelations were thoughtful, intelligent, humorous, and deeply moving. Unless, of course, it was merely a skit or routine. Nevertheless, I found myself clapping while sitting alone watching it.As a former Roman Catholic turned Atheist, Ms. Sweeney generously shares her personal journey in touching moments as tears well in her eyes, showing the breadth of her talent. She reveals how she came to think for herself as she read scientific material, countering her dogmatic upbringing. Ms. Sweeney discusses experiences that we perceive to be real are only neurons firing. She is as convincing as the...

You make Karma work or not! Karma is the Law of Attraction working in the most wondrously dysfunctional way! Why? Because….what you send out is what you get back. When you are not in integrity with your Self at your core level of consciousness within your Self, you are not 'in' integrity outside of your Self.

This Karma doesn't care whether you are in integrity or not. Karma just is the return on your investment. If you invest in your life, your commitments, your relationships with integrity, then your Karma gives you the best return on your investment. However, when your Karma is absent of integrity, Karma returns your investment in difficult challenges, difficult relationships and difficulties in general.

One of the best ways to get Karma to work in your ...

I'm delighted to introduce my very special guest, Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup For The Soul and star of the hit movie The Secret.

Jack just celebrated his 66th birthday yesterday and I had the great pleasure of having lunch with him way back in 1992.This was the year BEFORE his book 'Chicken Soup For The Soul' came out on the market, and we had met at a CEO Space convention in Los Angeles.Jack was already fairly well-known, but nobody at that time -- probably not even Jack himself -- had a clue as to how high he was going to fly!I remember being impressed with how friendly and u...

Popular Disney star and recording artist Hannah Montana's real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus, but in 2008 at age 15 she filed papers to have her name officially changed to Miley Ray Cyrus.Her father, fellow singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus, and her mother Tish are said to have named her Destiny Hope because they believed she would accomplish great things with her life.And they gave her the nickname 'Smiley' because she smiled so much as a child. Her name was later shortened to 'Miley' Hope Cyrus and eventually changed to 'Miley Ray' Cyrus because of her deep love fo...

Sometimes things are just what they are, whether we can accept them or not. This doesn't make others wrong, or make us have to agree. We can just go our merry ways and leave alone what we don't want to agree with or accept if we can't have direct and decent discourse.Martin Scorsese would probably have appreciated that position coming from those who never saw his film, 'The Last Temptation of Christ,' but took to the picket lines anyway. They were afraid their sensibilities were going to be offended without knowing the facts.Skeptics are in denial, who need to believe the geoglyphic art or Nazca lines of Chile's Atacama Desert in Peru, depicting spiders, birds, animals, etc., are natural formations when research shows that people made them. It is difficult for some to step...

It is good to share. Philosophies and religions teach us this.To get all we want at any cost to anyone else, just because our egos need reinforcement through excessive materiality, however, may not be good for us in the long run. Can we argue with that? There are those who would.Whether we want to agree with asceticism (self-discipline) or not, the Universe will teach it to us using finite resources in an overpopulated world. Interestingly, those who will suffer the least because of personal riches and power through political connections, celebrity, or excessive financial motivation are those who espouse sharing until citizens of this country come to their knees. They won't be affected from their ivory towers, and may even benefit by hiring those who have subservient menta...

To a large extent we believe what we want to believe. We are certainly very good at rationalizing things for ourselves and for others.Here is an interesting example about how the line between truth and fiction, or inaccurate rationalization, can be blurred. In a nutshell, about 20 glass negatives supposed to be part of Ansel Adams's work thought lost in a darkroom fire have been found. Here is the link to the glass negatives discover and a photographer, I find this example particularly interesting because there are few facts, if any, to support these negatives being those of Ansel Adams'. However, this kind of situation exists with many other subjects. It also extends to our own personal beliefs. ...

A fox is an animal adept at deception. An animal is a euphemism for beast. The (fox) tier, directly making the word pattern (Fox), falls beneath Number Six (6). Hum. Is this a coincidence that 'The Beast' is associated with Number Six (6)?Research did show that Christian missionaries played a part in the placement of the Latin alphabet. Christian missionaries probably cared more about developing good character than did Church hierarchy, who were more about aggrandizing themselves. [If anyone doubts this, read Irving Stone's, The Agony and the Ecstacy, a biographical novel of Michelangelo, (1961). Irving Stone printed letters written by Michelangelo to his nephew, relating the circumstances of his life as an artist under Papal rule.] Finding this connection to Christ...
