Gettin' through Hard Times Together - Review
A review of "Gettin' through Hard Times Together: Creating Prosperity through Sharing, Service and Sacrifice," by William Barnes. A rather thorough argument in favor of balancing attention on both material and spiritual education to make a better world.
Dealing with Regrets
Religion, philosophers, and wise teachers have consistently told the world that the beauty of life exists in the unfolding of it, so wallowing in regret and guilt is wasting precious time.
The 5 Most Outrageous Things Bahá'ís Believe
Perhaps not so shocking as they were 150--or even 50--years ago, these basic Bahá'í beliefs are shaping a planet-wide social evolution.
Progress of the Soul after Death
Bahá'ís do not believe in a physical Heaven or Hell because their religion teaches that mankind is basically an eternal spirit associated for a short time with a physical body. When the body dies, the spirit continues to develop.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Evil Spirits ?
The terms 'Satan', the 'Evil One', do occur in the scripture but they are simply symbols for man's base and worldly nature, which is the source of imperfection and sin and which can be overcome.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Extraterrestrial Life ?
The Bahá'í Faith does have within its sacred texts several comments about the extent of God's creation that suggest non-terrestrial life is both possible and already existent.
Bahá'u'lláh's Steps to World Peace
The Prophet/Founder of the Bahá'í Faith advised world leaders that there are a few simple steps that they could take to achieve a prosperous and peaceful planet. Simple, but not easy.
Hope Requires Adversity
Hope is not an emotion, nor is it faith. Hope is a confident, cognitive response to adversity, which grows out of surviving tough times.
Can Religion Help Addiction ?
Evidence is mounting that addictions are not a linear connection from chemicals to behavior, and that emotional and psychological isolation play important roles. What if the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, but human connection? What then?
Virtues - the Best Fuel for Business Success
Without virtuous behavior, material progress cannot be maintained over time. Without spirit, good character is impossible to sustain.
