You Can Change How Your Brain Works

blog

The book Journey of the Universe, by Brian Swimme and Mary Evelyn Tucker, published in 2011 by Yale University Press, is well worth reading from the point of view of how our incredibly complex universe arose, leading to our amazing brain. The authors show in beautifully simple language how every step of the journey from the Big Bang until now has required a balance of forces.

Why Sandy Hook Happened

author blog

What happens in the brain of someone who massacres innocent children and dedicated teachers like this? How can someone possibly do something of this kind—and do it not just as an emotional reaction on the spur of the moment, but plan its execution in detail?

Lee Gerdes explains that something this sad, this incredibly heartbreaking, actually has a lot to do with the issue of feeling.

The Greatest

blog

Did you know that when emotional pain is intense but we don't allow ourselves to truly experience it, it can produce physical symptoms?

Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan play a married couple whose oldest teenage son is killed in an automobile accident that's the result of a well-intentioned but truly foolish move on his part.

"This cannot happen to ME!"

The Workings of the Adult Temper Tantrum

Life moves through us, bumps against us and sometimes, slaps us across the face. This is just the nature of Life. Just the way it is. Life just happens. One day we have a cushy job and the next day it is gone. One day we have a house standing and the next, a hurricane could blow it away. This is just the way the tide of Life flows. Despite our desperate attempts to control it, Life just happens.
