Choose Love: A Political Story That Ends Well

Today was Election Day, an important Election Day at that.  I live in Georgia, and our midterm elections were a big deal this year.  We’re typically a red state, but the progression of politics in the past few years has swayed our votes quite a bit, and the results have shown in the primaries.  Now, our gubernatorial race is a tight one between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp.  While the election is stressful for members of both parties, it did get a record number of voters to the polls.  However, this led to some record-breaking lines. As civically engaged as I am, I unfortunately have not yet reached voting age.  Therefore, I do what I can to make…

Be Kind To Yourself – Take That Pause

One cold evening, as I sat relaxed sipping a warm cup of tea, I experienced a nice friendly feeling – a sense of pristine calmness and appreciation of a divine and beautiful moment. And so just this small incident, got me thinking about our present day lives, which has come to be so dominated by the machine centered demands of the day. We don’t run technology any more. In fact, it is technology that is running us. We are controlled by it 24/7. Having this immense need to be connected to the world outside us, we are constantly checking on our messages, emails, and other updates. Even if we do get some free time our thoughts keep us occupied, planning…

True Friendship and Acts of Genuine Love Get Rewarded with Vigilante Justice in Lee, New hampshire

ot too long ago, in a place most of us haven’t even heard about – the town of Lee, a widely publicized drama encrusted sex scandal played out in Rockingham County Superior Court. A popular, highly-educated, pillar of Lee’s school community, a Ms. Kristie Torbick, 39-year-old guidance counselor at Exeter High School in Lee, New Hampshire, appeared for her plea-and-sentencing hearing. …vigilante justice managed to destroy the careers of a teacher, a school guidance counselor, and a fine, fine school superintendent. Ms. Torbick had accepted responsibility for multiple counts of consensual sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old adolescent male student placed in her care. Having already admitted her guilt, she wanted (rightly so) to mitigate her punishment, if possible. So, Ms.…

Courage to be kind

o me being kind is an act of courage. Courage to challenge your own beliefs, values and that of the society. Courage to take that first step to lift someone’s life. Courage to give more and receive less. And the courage to see someone happy.  We humans are culturally motivated to be competitive. Somehow we have come to learn that life is a game and only the fittest can survive and win. In such a scenario, cultivating kindness can not only be difficult and contradictory but a weak and losing theory to accept.  To recognize that every soul is equal in every which way, requires accepting a radically different approach towards life.  It means breaking the barriers of conventional thinking…
