Prayer During A Pandemic – It Can Be Challenging! – Spiritual Article

When Fear Arises – Happiness Article

Little fears cause anxiety, and big fears cause panic.— Chuang Tzu Although most of us have been deeply conditioned by fear, for the most part we have avoided directly exploring its nature.

Not being able to predict how something will turn out—a job, a relationship, a health concern, or even a pandemic—is stressful and can be paralyzing. As a patient of mine explained, “It’s the not knowing that makes me miserable and keeps me up at night.” Learning to let go of the things that are beyond your personal control is easier said than done. Telling someone to “stop worrying so much” is useless advice. Here is a tool that can help—the…

A Buddhist Chaplain Shares How to Cope with the Pandemic – Motivational, Self Improvement Article

When I decided over two years ago to become a Buddhist Chaplain, I could’ve never dreamed that I would be experiencing our current pandemic crisis.

A meditation on freedom during COVID-19 – Spiritual Article

As the United States begins relaxing stay-at-home orders, it has made me reflect on the meaning of freedom in the age of COVID-19.

For…

Zoom Happy Hours Make Me Want To Convert Into An Introvert – Personal Development Article

Author Kate Murphy wrote, “The way the video images are digitally encoded and decoded, altered and adjusted, patched and synthesized introduces all kinds of artifacts: blocking, freezing, blurring, jerkiness and out-of-sync audio. These disruptions, some below our conscious awareness, confound perception and scramble subtle social cues. Our brains strain to fill in the gaps and make sense of the disorder.” I felt seen.…

The Most Meaningful Lessons I’ve Learned About Grief – Wit & Delight – Lifestyle Article

Photo by siyan peng on UnsplashWe grieve differently. We see the world differently. We heal differently. We open our hearts differently. We are different because we, ultimately, must be. Sameness, the whole humdrum operation, wouldn’t serve us anyway. It shouldn’t be difficult to “make do” with the grief I feel. But, I always end up comparing my pain to others. In grief’s journey of anger, sadness, questioning, and guilt, pain becomes delectably comparative. When I feel a certain way, I always wonder if I’m…
