Is An Eye For An Eye Ever Justified?

As I'm sure you've heard/read/seen, the United States conducted a mission in which Osama bin Laden "passed away." At first, I was quite shocked. Everything we'd been told about bin Laden was that he was hiding in a cave somewhere. Moreover, he hadn't been in the news in ages, and all of a sudden -- [...]

We Have To Do This! No, We Don’t. We Have to Take In Nourishment…

I was talking to my partner about still having to write a post today and she looked at me kind of funny. When she did, I noticed the error in my speech and proceeded to say, "I want to write a post today." A few years ago, there was a character (Sheldon Cooper) from The Big Bang [...]

With Love and Gratitude

Anytime I write something to another person, I nearly always end the message with: With Love and Gratitude. I've been asked on a number of occasions why it is that I do this. I usually give people the abridged version (spreading joy) or something like that. I thought it would be good to have a [...]

The Scientific Evidence for Telepathy: Psi Phenomena, Part 1

I've touched on psi phenomena in a couple of other posts (What if we were all telepathic? and Would you take a pill to make you smarter?), but I didn't really go into the details of what Charles Tart calls, "The Big Five." In doing research for an upcoming series of posts on my thoughts [...]

Luongo and the Canucks Need Energetic Help!

I had the chance to watch the end of the Stanley Cup Playoffs game 6 between the Vancouver Canucks and the Chicago Blackhawks. Vancouver won the first three games of the series and Chicago has won the most recent two. The coach of the Canucks pulled a bold move in benching his starting goaltender, Roberto [...]

Your Words and Thoughts Affect Others – Believe It!

A week ago, I did a post on how our words affect our reality and mentioned that I would be doing a post about how our words not only affect our reality, but the reality of others. In pulling together some outside resources for this post, I was quickly overwhelmed. There is an abundance of [...]

What Will They Think Of Us?

I don't really remember much of the history I was taught in grade school or high school for that matter. Having been raised in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), I was taught a lot about the history of Canada. From what I remember, there was something about Upper Canada and Lower Canada, and that's about [...]

Earth Day is Every Day

Forty some odd years ago, United States Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin, called for an environmental teach-in to be held on April 22nd, 1970. During that year, over 20 million people participated. Many great things happen each year on Earth Day, most of which all have to do with the Earth in some way. It [...]

Pets Are So Much More Than Just “Pets”

The value of having pets far outweighs any of the negatives associated with having a pet. Humans and animals have coexisted for quite some time. Beyond the time of when humans (hunted) animals, someone must have decided that it was going to be a good idea to make one of those animals part of their [...]

Cell Phone Etiquette: Necessary Evil vs. “Old-Fashioned” Manners

Have you ever been out to dinner with people when suddenly you hear the (vibration) of a cell phone and then one of the people has their head buried in their phone? How about walking down the street and hearing someone talking to what looks like thin air? Or what about in the grocery store, [...]
