Constructive Anger

The following excerpt about constructive anger is taken from the book of dialogue between the Dalai Lama and myself, entitled Emotional Awareness (2009). Having just reread it, I found nothing to change; I still believe it raises the right question, makes a useful suggestion and offers a practice to learn it. It is only when life itself is threatened (our own or that of others) that we might need to focus on the actor rather than the action. Fortunately, that is a rare occurrence in the lives of most of us.

“Constructive Anger” Excerpt from Emotional Awareness, pp. 124-5

Ekman: I think [there is] a crucial issue for how people are educated about the way in which they can experience anger in a constructive fashion. You cannot get rid of anger, but you can learn how to use it in a way that is good for you. And the way that is good for you is not to hurt the other person. That almost always backfires. Unless you eliminate him or her, the person will come back and hurt you.

Dalai Lama: (Translated.) There is a famous story in the Buddhist texts about a Bodhisattva (in Mahayana Buddhism, this is known as a person who is able to reach nirvana but delays doing so out of compassion in order to save suffering beings*). This story seems to suggest an interesting take on the question, How can there be a compassion-motivated anger? The story is there is a Bodhisattva who is traveling on a boat. There is also a mass murderer on the boat and the Bodhisattva finds out that this person is going to kill all the other passengers. After failing to persuade the potential murderer to desist from what he is planning to do, he kills the mass murderer. The idea is that the Bodhisattva has full compassion for this potential murderer, but at the same time total disapproval of the act that he was about to commit. He has compassion for the mass murderer but anger against the act he is about to perform.

Ekman: In the 2000 conference, a group of us met one night to plan the research project to respond to your challenge, “Is this going to be just talk, good karma, or is something going to happen?” There were about six of us sitting around, beginning to plan. One of the participants kept raising obstacles: “You should not do this,” “you are reinventing the wheel,” and “why do you think you need to do this?” Mark Greenberg showed a beautiful example of constructive anger, because this person was putting an obstacle in our way. Mark said, “We really want to proceed, and if you want to participate, then we welcome you here. But if you do not want to participate, you should not stay in this meeting. You should let us do what we want to do.” He said it with strength. I asked him afterward, “Were you angry” and he said, “Yes.” But it was a very constructive anger. There was no element of trying to harm. He did not say, “Why do you think you know more than we know?” That would be harmful, right? Mark’s anger was totally focused on the action, removing the obstacle. Focusing anger on the objectionable action, not the actor, appears also in the writings of an emotion theorist, the late Richard Lazarus, who was a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, in exactly the same terms. What is needed, I think, is to give people practice in doing it. You could start with a situation in which anger was directed at the actor, and ask how you could instead direct the anger at the act. But that does not have as much life and vitality. We need exercises for developing this skill. When I anticipate that I will need to discuss an issue with my wife about which there might be some conflict, ahead of time I plan in my mind how I am going to deal with it. I actually go through a rehearsal in my mind: how I will direct my disagreement only at the act and be careful not to criticize her. I do not let her know that that is what I am doing. I have found it to be useful, and often successful, in finding a solution to our disagreement. You have to practice focusing on the act that is causing difficulty, not the actor; you cannot just think about it. This practice is based on a realization of our interdependence, but it is a practice, in my example, rehearsed in the mind.

I am a Hypochondriac

I am in a perpetual abusive relationship with hypochondria; I desperately want to get away from it, but somehow it controls my brain.

I’ve had hypochondriac tendencies (more officially known as “illness anxiety disorder“) for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure who or what to blame and the source of the disorder is irrelevant; it’s the cure I’m after.

Hypothesis theories for my hypochondria:

  • Throughout my childhood, my mother perpetually complained of a bad heart and threatened to faint, falling back on her stash of smelling salts in her purse.
  • The best birthday present I ever got was the Merck Medical Manual, which I read cover to cover like a gripping mystery novel.
  • The internet. Type in a symptom and it’ll provide evidence to substantiate any cancer diagnosis – or MS or blood clot or an aneurysm de jour.
  • The tragic stories which make you feel powerless and helpless. The healthy marathon runner who never smoked a day in his life with no family history and plagued with lung cancer.

Has your foot ever fallen asleep? How about just your pinky toe? How long will you let your pinky toe feel numb before googling it? Or will you even notice at all? I’m perpetually amazed at how we exist in a world where people could carry a pregnancy unknowingly alongside people like me who notice a pin-prick size bite or a new freckle emerge among millions. I swear to feel my egg drop each month and I promise I can feel it traveling down my fallopian tube. I’m not claiming it’s painful; I’m simply acknowledging I feel it and I am hyper aware of it. This hypersensitivity is called body vigilance. It means I feel any little thing even if it’s just my body being alive, and I take it to the extreme.

My brain engages in a civil war: the FEAR team versus the LOGIC team. Even though my LOGIC team is armed with more data than my FEAR team, the latter plays dirty by shooting out the deadly ‘what if’ arrows into the ring, completely leveling the field. For every logical comment, my brain uses to assuage the fear, the ‘what-if’s’ throw something in to make me doubt myself. What if JUST THIS TIME it is a heart attack? What if JUST THIS TIME it is a blood clot in my lungs? What if JUST THIS TIME that little lip twitch is an early indicator of Multiple Sclerosis? Or Muscular Dystrophy? (I always confused them, but am terrified of both equally.)

Keep in mind, I am a smart, educated person who understands, appreciates and is fascinated by biology (my favorite science). When my grandfather was diagnosed with throat cancer, I scoured the Internet for everything there was to know about the disease, the treatment, and the recovery. When my grandmother was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm, she asked how long it had been there and they told her they had no idea; probably years. She said, “If I’ve been walking around with it for years, I’ll continue to walk around with it.” I am not that person. I would think of nothing other than that growing blood clot pushing on my brain. I would not sleep because I would be sure it would pop in my sleep or when I coughed or screamed or yelled.

For years, I thought the momentary sharp pain I got “under my breast” was a heart attack warning. I thought back to my mother grabbing her chest and yelling out in Russian, “koleet,” which translates to “it’s piercing.” She’d gasp for breath and occasionally ask for the smelling salts but the pain was always gone soon after with no real repercussion or follow up. She never went to a cardiologist but told me the story about how she had scarlet fever as a child and it has lasting effects on her heart. She had us all convinced she had a bad heart, but now I realize she just had gas. She also spewed the rhetoric how her “B” blood type, was a lower caliber blood, secondary to “A” blood type. “I have the weaker blood type,” she would tell me, “not like your father. Thank goodness you have A positive like him.” Turns out we actually both have O positive.

When I take things to the extreme, I know I’m trying to gain control because ultimately FEAR is controlling my hypochondriac symptoms. Somehow my brain believes if I discover it early enough; if I prepare well enough; if I get to the hospital fast enough, I’ll save myself. My preparedness is fruitless; I am a samurai meditating on my death.

The older I get, the worse it is. I’ve spent so many years worrying about these possible horrific diseases without getting them, I’m sure my time is coming. Why else has life been preparing me for all these diseases? I wait and wait, wasting all my time fearing when I could have been grateful for every day without pain. I could be appreciating every day that I am not aware of something secretly growing inside me. The fear can be paralyzing; it’s dangerous in the world with terrible texting drivers and drunk people at a concert who might trample me and ticking bombs in random dumpsters, but fear is just a self-induced terrorist which will imprison you with limitations.

A therapist tried to help me with my brain’s propensity to rapidly accelerate towards the worst case scenario regarding health issues but it’s a hard program to overwrite. She tried to teach me if I find a small lump on my arm, for instance, I shouldn’t instantly google “arm cancer,” and instead just be aware of it and monitor it for a few days to see if perhaps it was just a mosquito bite and will go away. Her goal was to modify my behavior to delay the panic release.

Over time, I’ve learned that I have to understand the difference between pain and sensation. Awareness does not necessarily indicate a symptom of something else, it is a reminder my heart is beating and I am breathing. I’m also not the type of hypochondriac who incessantly visits the doctor; I’m too afraid they will find something and also, I don’t trust them. Today’s doctors’ first order of business is a prescription for Klonopin to try to quiet my overactive mind.

Therapists often get hung up on analysis to decipher the root of the disorder, but I’m often frustrated because I want a solution, or at least a better coping method than writing (192,733 words to date and still not cured).

Did you hear that wheeze when I inhaled deeply? Or am I not inhaling deeply enough? Is my lung capacity giving me enough air? Can I make the wheeze happen again? Of course not! It’s like bringing the car to the mechanic and then it doesn’t make the noise. Don’t you hear that deep wheeze? Is that stage 4 lung cancer?

I feel like a floating molecule through space waiting to be struck by something. I walk through life avoiding the diseases like walking between the raindrops.

AFL-CIO to Planet Earth: Drop Dead

At a meeting with the deputy political director of the AFL-CIO during my campaign for Congress, she looked across her desk and told me that I could get major union support by coming out in favor of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

That was five years ago. Since then, the nation’s biggest labor federation has continued to serve the fossil fuel industry. Call it union leadership for a dead planet.

Last week, the AFL-CIO put out a statement from its president, Richard Trumka, under the headline “Dakota Access Pipeline Provides High-Quality Jobs.” The rhetoric was standard flackery for energy conglomerates, declaring “it is fundamentally unfair to hold union members’ livelihoods and their families’ financial security hostage to endless delay.”

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is steadfast against the Dakota Access pipeline: “We will not rest until our lands, people, waters, and sacred sites are permanently protected from this destructive pipeline.”

In sharp contrast to the AFL-CIO’s top echelon, some unions really want to restrain climate change and are now vocally opposing the Dakota pipeline.

Communications Workers of America has expressed solidarity with members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe “as they fight to protect their community, their land and their water supply.”

At National Nurses United, Co-President Jean Ross cites “an obligation to step up climate action to protect public health and the future for the generations to follow us.”

Ross said: “We commend the leaders and members of the Standing Rock Sioux, the many First Nation allies who have joined them, and the environmentalists and other supporters who have participated in the protests against the Dakota Access pipeline.”

NNU points out that “the proposed 1,172-mile pipeline would carry nearly a half million barrels of dirty crude oil every day across four states.” Ross says that such projects “pose a continual threat to public health from the extraction process through the transport to the refinery.”

As for the AFL-CIO’s support for the pipeline, NNU’s director of environmental health and social justice was blunt. “We’re deeply disappointed in our labor federation siding with those that would endanger and harm the land, the water, the lives of the people along the pipeline path and the health of the planet itself in the name of profits,” Fernando Losada said.

He added that the Dakota pipeline is part of “a drive to extract fossil fuel that is untenable for the future of the planet.”

The nurses union is part of the AFL-CIO, but dominant forces within the federation are committed to corporate energy priorities. Losada said that “some elements in the AFL-CIO” have caused a stance that “is a narrow position in the alleged interests of their members for some short-term jobs.”

Compare that narrow position to a recent statement from Communications Workers of America: “The labor movement is rooted in the simple and powerful idea of solidarity with all struggles for dignity, justice and respect. CWA will continue to fight against the interests of the 1% and corporate greed and firmly stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe against the environmental and cultural degradation of their community.”

A venerable labor song has a question for the leaders of the AFL-CIO: Which side are you on?

When it comes to planetary survival, the answer from the top of the AFL-CIO hierarchy remains: We’re on the wrong side.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

By Far, This Was the Most Important Thing I Learned at Stanford Medicine X…

I never get tired of watching planes take off, and the bigger they are, the better I like them. For instance, every time I see a 747 lift off the ground, I wonder what fabulous adventure awaits its passengers.

I’m currently watching quite a few 747′s and even a few A-380′s jet off to the far corners of the earth. I’m sitting with my wife Stephanie in the Admiral’s Club at the San Francisco International Airport. Technically, I shouldn’t be watching them. We should be on a flight to Phoenix for the first leg on our way home to St. Louis. But thanks to faulty wiring, a monsoon in the Ohio Valley, or a wicked case of IBS in the abdomen of our pilot, our flight has been delayed by over two hours.

And because our layover in Phoenix was only an hour… guess who’s going to miss their connection?

Back when the airlines didn’t give a rat’s ass about saving money, they used to have exponentially more flights. Think back ten years when you would sometimes get on a flight to find a grand total of eight people… three being the flight attendants.

Once things with the economy went south and jet fuel skyrocketed, the major carriers came to the conclusion that they could save a fair amount of shekels by drastically cutting the number of flights, and overselling the ones remaining.

The result did save them a lot money, but also provided travelers that little extra… something. Now, because every plane is stuffed like a tube of liquid sausage, if you miss a connection due to any type of delay, you almost never get a decent re-route to your destination. I won’t say the name of the airline, but all that the acronym for Alcoholics Anonymous could do for us was a tick shy of miserable.

Thanks for that, AA.

Originally, we weren’t even booked on this flight. When I first found out I was going to be speaking at Stanford Medicine X, I made the assumption that the talk would probably happen on the first two days of the three-day conference. Seriously, who actually does anything on the last day of a conference? It’s usually breakfast, a keynote, lunch, and the door.

So I made a reservation for a 6:30am flight that would get us back to St. Louis in time to spend time with our boys, Sam and Ben.

Well, you know what they say when you assume…

My friend Sarah, who got me on the panel in the first place, informed me that our time was 9:15… on Sunday morning. After a phone call and an additional $ 400 (thank you AA!), our flight was rebooked for 3:45pm. At least we would still get home on Sunday. Barely.

Once we arrived in Palo Alto, we didn’t give another thought to our travel plans as we immersed ourselves into the wonder, awe, exhaustion, and life affirmation that is Stanford Medicine X. Stephanie and I got so much out of the speakers who shared their stories, and even more out of the people we met and befriended.

The panel that I was so blessed to be a part of went off swimmingly. My compatriots Sarah, Pamela, and Bob were so smart and knowledgeable and nice. I actually became smarter via osmosis. At the last minute, we were even able to include my friend Dave from Stupid Cancer to talk about the amazing app Instapeer, and how it is radically changing how young adults with cancer connect with each other.

I could not have been happier with how it went. The reaction from our audience was so positive, and the questions we were able to elicit gave us confidence that we struck a nerve. It was probably one of the top five highlights of my professional life.

I was still riding a natural high when we walked up to the kiosk at SFO to print our boarding passes. My first hint that something was wrong was the bright flashing red light when they found my itinerary. Before I could decipher what was happening, my phone rang.

Hi!

…said Jane, my robo-caller…

This is Alcoholics Anonymous. You’re going to miss your connection home, which blows a goat. Here’s your only choice… which is actually our choice. We’ll get you to Phoenix. Then, you’re going to wait five hours to take the red-eye to Chicago at 12:45am, but we suggest you eat early, because they shut everything down at 9:00pm at Sky Harbor on a Sunday. After arriving in the crotch-rot that is O’Hare at 6:30am, you’ll have forty-five minutes to choke down a breakfast burrito and sprint like a gazelle to catch your third flight to your final destination. Have a super day!

Marvelous.

So we paid the $ 57 per person that the Admirals Club charges for two one-day passes. They killed the thirty-day family-awesome pass in May that would have been a much better value.

Thank you, AA!

After stewing for a few minutes, Stephanie called her mom to tell her the good news while I went foraging for neon-yellow cubes of cheese, pita chips, a surprisingly amazing soup with chicken and lemon and orzo, and two large glasses Pinot Grigio. Tip of the cap to Angela for the full pours, by the way.

After devouring the provisions, Steph and I sat back and reminisced about our favorite speakers of the weekend. There was Jonathan Bush, CEO of athenahealth, who gave possibly the funniest, most-entertaining, and crazy-insightful keynotes I’ve ever heard. You knew you were in for a good time when the first words were…

Well shit. How do you follow the prior speakers? These people are like roses, and I’m just a turd. Thanks Medicine X for exposing my turdness.

There was the panel on the potential opioid epidemic in America, and how my thoughts of it being an either/or issue were so grossly wrong. There are more nuances than you can imagine, and some of the participants got a little chippy with each other. Definitely popcorn worthy.

But then there was Terry Marlin. Terry is a husband and dad who owns a small manufacturing company in Tennessee. He has two sons, Jonah who is twelve, and Emory who is ten. In 2009, both of Terry’s sons were diagnosed with an absolutely horrible disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It’s a disease that robs the body of its physical ability to move… before it kills you in your early to mid-twenties. Since diagnosis, both boys have lost the use of their legs, and Jonah has lost the use of his arms. And things will only get worse.

There is no cure. More than likely, there will be no cure before both boys succumb.

This has not stopped Terry. Together with his wife Sonya, they have raised just shy of a million dollars for research. It is a staggering number, guaranteed to make a very large dent, if not full blown crevice into the scourge of DMD.

But while Terry has hope, there are times when this disease tears at his very soul. His boys ask, “Daddy, you’ve raised so much money. When are we going to be able to walk again?”

At this point, all of us in the audience were in bits. We knew, like Terry knew, that he didn’t have the answer… and possibly if not probably wouldn’t before it was too late for Jonah and Emory. It would be enough to sink anyone into an unquenchable depression.

Yet through his tears, Terry left us with this piece of beauty…

My son has lost the use of his arms and legs, and yes, it’s physically hard on all of us. But whenever I pick him up, I have to wrap his arms around my shoulders. So no matter how hard a time I might have at a given moment, I get to hug my son every day. And that can’t be a bad thing.

And hours later, as Stephanie and I sit in a luxurious lounge with wine and cheese and pita chips and wifi and power outlets and football on twelve televisions, I realize that no matter how bad my day gets, my worst day will never be as hard as Terry’s best day.

But while his hardships are many, his moments of joy dwarf them, because he’s figured out what so many of us haven’t: we have the ability to choose our focal points, and he’s decided to focus on the blessings he has.

So while I could sit here and think about the fact that we’ll be traveling for eight more hours that we should, I will instead pour my energy into embracing the eight more hours that I get to spend with my best friend, my traveling buddy, my forever everything, and the woman who gave me two loves of my life.

And to top it off, some guy sitting across from us in the Alcoholics Anonymous Admirals Club just gave us two free drink tickets on his way out the door. Things are looking up already.

Stephen Burlingham Going Beyond Art for Youth with Cancer

Cancer. The word that terrifies us, at any age. But when a young person is struck by it, it seems all the more tragic. To help cope with this harsh reality, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who joined together to form WHO Cares and created The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). This is a place that allows teenagers to feel like teenagers and immerse in an atmosphere far unlike a hospital’s (program).

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Teen and Young Adult (TYA@MSK) Program offers special services to MSK’s teen and young adult population.

The Lounge is a space designed especially for this unique age group that was made possible by a $ 1 million donation from Teen Cancer America. The nonprofit organization, co-founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, partners with hospitals throughout the U.S. to develop specialized facilities for teens and young adults with cancer.

Inspired to go beyond art to create a space for healing, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center turned to a new friend of mine, the extraordinary thinker and doer Stephen Burlingham. Stephen, speaking to our foundation’s young global leaders this summer, explained his recent piece “Whisper” featured in the MSK Lounge for Teens and Young Adults:

I wanted to go beyond art. “Whisper,” for me, is hope for the patients, the family and friends of children living with cancer. My work springs directly from envisioning humanity’s cumulative knowledge and belief encapsulated within an ever-expanding membrane that emanates from the Elements themselves.

My work stands for the universal Membrane and involves my search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restrains and to see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible – that which is unable to be touched or grasped, that lacks a physical presence.

Stephen is no stranger when it comes with working with children in needs. The grand-grandson of the renowned designer Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stephen was commissioned for designing the award for the Save the Children’s 75th Anniversary Benefit in 2007. Three visionary leaders were honored at that benefit with Save the Children’s Global Humanitarian Awards — former President George H. W. Bush, former President Bill Clinton, and Melinda Gates.

Unlike any other artist I have met, Stephen is charismatic, spiritual, intelligent – and deeply philosophical. If you didn’t know he was an artist, you might think he is a humanitarian.

One of his works, a permanent stone sculpture entitled “The Crossing,” was erected in the ancient port of Bodrum, Turkey, on the Mediterranean. He told me the piece now bears witness to the eternal laws that are constant over time, language and culture – and the great civilizations which unite humanity.

Another of his work in progress, “The Gateway,” is an installation project that explores the frontier between the tangible and the intangible. “Traversing this universal Membrane is at the core of my work,’ he said, “and the search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restraints and see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible.”

Cancer can sometimes feel like that, intangible and out of one’s grasp. The artist speaks of his piece as a way to “look through and beyond.” I took this as a nod to those battling cancer. The Lounge at MSK provides an escape for teenagers who want to be able to live their lives as if they are somewhere else other than a hospital.

“I believe it is up to each patient and family member to choose to see and to take from your piece what you intended to offer them,” Stephen told us.

His work “Whisper,” I believe, is aptly named. Whisper surround hospitals. In Stephen’s whispers, we see something else – a different way to speak up. Among the whispers are the intangible possibility that things can get better, and that people may truly heal.

Meera Gandhi, an activist and CEO of The Giving Back Foundation, is a good friend of us both. Meera helped me gain some insight into Stephen’s life and work:

When I walked into Sloan Kettering and got to the lounge, the yellow art piece “Whisper” by Stephen Burlingham reminded me of the sun. I assumed Stephen was thinking of sunlight and energy to heal when he designed that.

The Lounge has great energy and is so comfortable and has the guitar from The Who hanging on the wall. Stephen shared that he had such joy creating the piece and hoped many teens would be healed of cancer and enjoy great downtime in the relaxed lounge created at MSK.

Meera received our foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2015.

Jeremy Hu, gallerist and global adviser to our foundation, agrees:

When you step into The Lounge at Sloan Kettering, the first thing you notice is the vibrancy of Stephen’s work brightening up the walls, signaling a hopeful tomorrow, one that is cancer-free. There is such peace in Burlingham’s pieces. The main element blends seamlessly with the world around it. It lifts you up.

A challenge we have as a foundation and young global leadership program is to try to relate to our readers the breadth and scope of those thought leaders and global citizens whom we meet during the course of our activities. Stephen Burlingham is perhaps the most intellectually engaging and challenging individual we have encountered. One piece on his hospital installation does not begin to unravel his myriad mysteries.

2016-09-18-1474224765-2027162-079F186D707A499980668C21052A029F.jpg

With this in mind, we have determined to create a series about his artistic achievements. Stephen’s world revolves around CoAu – the iconic markers of the paradigm shift of Humanity’s Consciousness, The Gateway, the physical portal of the new consciousness, and 0M1.org, a community forming around this new consciousness.

As we sat around our dining table, we discussed with Stephen his vision. In short, the artist sees three current parts: Joining the idea/vision, a shared curiosity in Humanity’s future and the cosmos; Collaborating in the realization of the Gateway; and Bringing together thought leaders and interested parties (people, universities, think tanks, etc.). Our young team seemed anxiously eager to absorb his ideas.

A creative life force such as Stephen Burlingham is difficult to encapsulate and even harder to pigeonhole. Young patients living with cancer who find themselves in The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center don’t care – they simply find enormous comfort in his piece “Whisper.”

Our foundation is actively discussing how best we might engage him in the future. Should he be Artist-in-Residence, Humanitarian of the Year, or simply honorary chair of our Global Advisory Board? Whatever role he may one day assume with us, it is clear that Stephen Burlingham is going to change the world.

Stephen King Compares Donald Trump To Cthulhu; Cthulhu Issues Angry Denial

The ultimate “deplorable” wants nothing to do with Donald Trump.

A parody Twitter account set up for Cthulhu, one of the Great Old Ones created by early 20th century author H.P. Lovecraft, took offense to being linked to the Republican presidential candidate by novelist Stephen King:

But the Cthulhu account, which claims Cthulu is running for president, quickly fired off a denial ― and it was an absolute gem packed with references from King’s many books: 

Now that this issue has been cleared up, is America finally #ReadyForCthulhu?

Christian Care Communities Receive Tribute & Medicine Assistance by Charles Myrick of ACRX

http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Is There A Solar System In The Mind’s Sky?

2016-09-11-1473600796-6959847-solarsystem.jpg

Our understanding of the human mind, including where it came from, it’s true nature, and how it works and evolves, is primitive. In the absence of scientific understanding, the lexicons for mindfulness and meditation are rich with evocative metaphors. We search for perfect images or words to describe or evoke various experiences and brain states that free us even for a few moments from the messiness of being human. Now pop stars are calling us in cool ways to calm and clear our minds: “it’s all about the breath,” “feel this moment.”

In mindfulness practices we sit quietly and gently watch the passing inside weather. Thought clouds or windy surges of emotions rush in and pass by. Unhooking from the inner weather leads to experiencing the present moment. You may also get occasional glimpses of a stillness of being, resonating with the sky behind the clouds. Quantum biologists call this resting energy state, widely prevalent in biological molecules, “quantum criticality.” Daoists call it “Dao,” a pervasive stillness of the individual and collective consciousness.

While I cherish tuning into an empty state of mind, I have always felt a nagging dissatisfaction with letting thoughts and emotions go. I am curious about the nature of the thought clouds, windy emotions, and the ever-changing emotional weather report. Judy Collins captures my sentiments in her song Both Sides Now:

I‘ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

A yearning to understand the inner clouds and windy emotions led me on a journey four years ago to “turn the lights on” in my inner world, starting with study of internal family systems (IFS) practice developed by Dick Schwartz. In the IFS model, which is focused on healing, the mindful mind, or “self,” witnesses and orchestrates an internal family of “parts” or subpersonalities that are the source of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, healthy and unhealthy.

As a biologist (17-year career in biotech), immersed in the awe-inspiring order of mother nature, I was certain that there is a strengths-based scaffolding for the internal family. Gradually I unpacked and organized my inner world. I found nine independent life forces or characters, now depicted as my personal emojis.

To convey this experience, I published a hypothesis paper: Coaching the Multiplicity of Mind: A Strengths-based Approach, followed by a new Harvard Health book, Organize Your Emotions, Optimize Your Life, co-authored with Harvard physician Eddie Phillips, and writer John Hanc. For four years I have done a daily roll call as my early morning mindfulness practice, which decodes my emotional weather report and brings some clarity and calm. I have taught the practice to hundreds of coaching clients, helping them tune into a “radio frequency” of each life force.

Now I use the metaphor of a solar system; I experience the psyche as having a sun at the core and eight planets, each in its own unique orbit. My mind seems like the energy field of a solar system. When I want to quiet my mind I ask my “planets” to go out to orbit, like sending kids out to play, so I can have a quiet moment. In Table 1, I list my five steps to decode and settle an agitated emotion.

In my flights of imagination, I wonder whether the solar system is the source of elements and energy forms and states that self-organized on earth into life forms, and four billion years later, populate our minds (Table 2).

Now we are back to a metaphor and a question: Is there a solar system in the mind’s sky?

Table 1: Five Steps to Decode and Settle an Agitated Emotion

  1. Imagine a large, benevolent outer space for the mind’s solar system.
  2. Move the mind’s planets out to orbit and sit in (sort of) still emptiness.
  3. Invite an agitated emotion into a still emptiness to share its message and emotional energy, and perhaps show its character in a costume or scene.
  4. Ask the agitated character to return to the mind’s outer space.
  5. Return to still emptiness. The just-in-time wisdom, previously eclipsed by the agitation, naturally emerges to balance and settle the agitation.

NOTE: This technique is aligned with a basic three-part algorithm of quantum biology (source: Stuart Kauffman) and Daoism (source: Wang Chengya, Beijing):

+ 0 -

Here’s the metaphor. When an emotional energy state (Plus or Yang, Negative or Yin) is in the presence of the Zero or Dao energy state, it seems to resonate with its polar opposite energy and cohere into a wave, a balance of opposing energies.

Table 2: Is there a Solar System in the Mind’s Sky?

Bill Clinton: Hillary Is Doing Fine, Got Dehydrated After Working Like A Demon

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is “doing fine” after her abrupt departure from a memorial event last weekend, former President Bill Clinton assured journalist Charlie Rose on Monday.

“She’s doing fine, she was even better last night before she went to sleep,” Clinton told Rose during an interview that aired on PBS late Monday. “She had a good night’s sleep, she’s doing fine … She just got dehydrated yesterday.”

The Clinton camp has been scrambling to address the incident at a September 11 memorial ceremony in New York City. Video footage taken at the event appears to show the candidate wobbling on her feat and being helped into a van, her feet dragging. Her doctors later announced she had been diagnosed with pneumonia last week, which Clinton did not publicly disclose. 

Rose pressed her husband’s claims that she was only dehydrated, asking if there were any signs of something more “serious.”

“Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” Bill Clinton replied, before noting that “frequently ― well not frequently, rarely ― but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.”

The former president assured Rose that his wife wouldn’t be gone for “weeks” ahead of the campaign trail, adding that she had been working “like a demon” and “had two-and-a-half hard days before the day she got dizzy.”

He noted after Sunday’s incident that he’d be “lucky to hold [his wife] back another day” after she cancelled a campaign trip meant to see her in California this week.

The former secretary of state has already come under fire for keeping her illness private from her media detail and all but her closest staffers.

“I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal,” she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Both Clintons pointed to the unequal levels of scrutiny between the two leading candidates, noting Donald Trump had yet to release his tax returns and only provided cursory details about his health.

The Republican candidate promised on Monday to release some of his health records in the coming days.

Obama: Thanks for Acknowledging Lao War Victims but Stop Creating More War Victims

In pledging $ 90 million in bomb clearance initiatives last week while visiting Laos for the U.S.-ASEAN summit, Barack Obama Jr. became the first U.S. president to acknowledge the effects of the secret war that was waged by the United States as an extension of the Vietnam War from 1960-1975.

Mr. Obama told an audience that Laos had more ordinance dropped on it than on Germany and Japan during World War II and that “villages and entire valleys were obliterated,” and “countless civilians were killed. That conflict was another reminder that, whatever the cause, whatever our intentions, war inflicts a wrenching toll, especially on innocent men, women and children.”

Obama’s remarks directly counteract the historical revisionism about Vietnam that took root after the war epitomized by President Jimmy Carter’s claim that the destruction “from the war was mutual,” and Ronald Reagan’s that “ours was in truth a noble cause.”

This is very important, however, Obama paradoxically used his visit to Laos to reaffirm commitment to the Asia pivot strategy, whose centerpiece is an expanded military presence that threatens a new arms race and potential proxy war on the Asian continent with China.

The secret war also actually provides a template for the Global War on Terror which Obama has championed through his eight years in office.

The U.S. pioneered weapons systems in Laos such as drone surveillance and electronic ground censors connected to computerized bomb targeting centers that are a feature of the so-called revolution in military affairs guiding U.S. operations in the Middle East.

The U.S. government strategy in Laos was to subcontract counterinsurgency to proxy forces and rely heavily on Special Forces units and air power in the absence of regular ground troops while censoring media coverage. The manipulation of public opinion was epitomized by the fabrication of a story of a North Vietnamese invasion, during the monsoon season no less, when the roads were actually impassable.

The United States began waging war in Laos after the Eisenhower administration staged a coup d’états following 1958 elections in which the pro-communist Pathet Lao won a majority of seats.

To circumvent the 1962 Geneva Conventions prohibiting foreign interference in the country and get around the woeful performance of the Laotian army, the CIA created its own clandestine army among the Hmong whom legendary CIA agent Edward Lansdale considered “splendid fighting men.”

In 1964, bombing operations commenced targeting Pathet Lao strongholds in the north and supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh trail that benefitted South Vietnam’s National Liberation Front (NLF).

Monteagle Stearns, deputy chief of mission in Laos from 1969 to 1972 told Congress that the U.S. rapidly escalated its bombing after President Lyndon B. Johnson had ordered a halt over North Vietnam in November 1968. “We had all those planes sitting around and couldn’t just let them stay there with nothing to do.”

The extent of the bombing would likely never have been known if not for Fred Branfman, an International Voluntary Service (IVS) worker with a deep affection for the Lao people who stumbled upon refugee camps and interviewed survivors for his 1972 book Voices From the Plain of Jars: Life Under an Air War.

Branfman included in the book drawings by Lao farmers who survived by living in underground caves and had many of their loved ones killed. The drawings were juxtaposed with the testimonials of U.S. pilots fixated with padding their kill totals and who knew little about Laotian society.

Branfman wrote that “If the Nazi activities represented a kind of apex to an age of inhumanity, American atrocities in Laos are clearly of a different order. Not so much inhuman as a-human. The people of Na Nga and Nong Sa were not the object of anyone’s passion. They simply weren’t considered. What is most striking about American bombing in Laos is the lack of animosity felt by the killers to their victims. Most of the Americans involved have little if any knowledge of Laos or its people. Those who do rather like them.”

These comments have unfortunate resonance in the present day where the Laos model of detached, mechanized covert and proxy war is again being waged in dozens of countries now under the rubric of the Global War on Terror.

Fred Branfman died of Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2014, though if he were alive today he would be happy that a sitting president has gone to Laos and belatedly acknowledged the terrible consequences of America’s secret war.

However, Mr. Branfman would also be aghast that the methods of the secret war are being continuously adopted elsewhere. And he would suggest that if Obama really wants to honor the Laos victims, he should cease creating more war victims and urge his successor to do the same.

The Powerful Life Lesson I Learned After My Cancer Diagnosis

What makes life worth living? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Katherine Killoran, physician, cancer survivor, on Quora:

I just read the book, When Breath Becomes Air. It is the memoir of Dr. Paul Kalanithi, who died in 2015 from lung cancer at age thirty-seven. Dr. Kalanithi was a neurosurgery resident when he was diagnosed with advanced cancer.

It is a beautiful book.

Dr. Kalanithi describes his life as he tries to answer one of life’s most enduring questions: What makes life worth living?

Of course, a life-threatening illness changes your perspective, and when you face mortality, it’s hard not to contemplate the meaning of life.

When you are faced with death, you will inevitably wonder did I live well? Did my life have meaning? Did I accomplish everything on my bucket list?

I certainly thought about all of those questions after my cancer diagnosis. One of the many things I found incredible about Dr. Kalanithi was that he thought about how to have a meaningful life well before his tragic diagnosis, even as a young man.

There is a captivating discussion in the book when, as a college student, he is deciding between working as a prep cook at a camp vs. working in a prestigious research lab. He felt it was a choice between experiencing life firsthand while at the camp or studying life while researching macaques.

Against the better judgment of some of his professors, he chose the camp and never regretted it. Not the usual choice for a college student thinking about going to medical school.

After college, he obtained a masters degree in English literature before becoming a physician and eventually a neurosurgeon. He thought medicine in general and neurosurgery in particular was the right mix of direct life experience while pursuing a meaningful life.

He lived for almost two years after his diagnosis, during which time he finished his residency.

Throughout that time, as he grappled with learning how to live when he knew he was going to die, he sought out his oncologist for help. Her advice was “find your values.”

Figure out what is important to you and go with that.

For him, it was returning to work as a neurosurgeon. For anyone who doesn’t know, neurosurgery is a particularly grueling specialty. All medical training programs are challenging, with long work hours and plenty of stress, but neurosurgery is one of the longest and toughest.

Dr. Kalanithi was so dedicated to his profession. It was such a big part of what made life meaningful for him that he willingly returned to complete his training after his cancer diagnosis. He went back to the hard work, stress, and long hours of neurosurgery training even when he was not sure how much time he had left.

I wasn’t willing to do that. At the time of my diagnosis, I was miserable at my job. I was working when I received the call that informed me I had cancer. An hour later, I walked out and never went back.

For me, I most certainly did not want to spend however much time I had left toiling away in a job I hated. I felt that my work environment and my negative feelings about it had contributed to my cancer diagnosis.

It was a no-brainer to leave that wretched job. The hard part was figuring out what to do next. I needed to find my values. At first, I thought I would leave medicine altogether. Walk away from years of hard work and training.

The reasons I went to medical school in the first place were still present. The biology and physiology of women’s health still amaze me. Interacting with patients, informing and educating them on health issues, and helping others understand and make good decisions regarding their health and wellness are all aspects of medicine that I enjoyed and wanted to continue.

Just not in the traditional hospital-based OB-Gyn practice I had worked in for almost ten years.

While I enjoyed operating and delivering babies, the pressure of being responsible for someone else’s life outweighed the satisfaction. At the time, I was not able to enjoy my life in the moment. My life was overwhelmed by my work. When I wasn’t actively working, I worried and dreaded going back.

Searching for my values, I found that I did want to continue practicing medicine, but in a different way.

Sheryl Sandberg spoke about what she learned about life from her husband’s death at a commencement address this spring. You can read it here. It’s well worth the time.

The part that I remember most is when she describes breaking down eleven days before the anniversary of her husband’s death, as she realized that one year ago, her husband only had eleven days left. She then thought, how would you live if you knew you only had eleven days left? She encourages everyone to do just that. Live every day like you only have eleven days left.

It is terrible but true that we learn more about life from death. Of course, I wish I did not have breast cancer, but I am grateful for the perspective it has given me.

At times I want to feel sorry for myself. At times I am angry that it happened to me. But then I remember that I am in a much better place now. I wish that I had obtained the clarity and perspective that I have now without a cancer diagnosis.

Why did I let my life get away from my values and what I know to be most important to me? Why couldn’t or didn’t I do what I knew I should be doing before my cancer diagnosis?

My advice to you: don’t wait for a life threatening illness.

Appreciate what you have now.

Be thankful for at least one thing in your life every day. Even better, go for three things and write them down.

Live like you have eleven days left.

To keep me on track, living and feeling well, making the most of every day, I use a daily wellness checklist. Click here if you’d like a copy.

NFL To Investigate Cam Newton’s Head Hits During Broncos Game

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton absorbed multiple hits to the head in the season-opening loss at Denver, and Broncos’ players said in the aftermath of Thursday’s game that hitting the reigning MVP was key to the game plan.

Newton’s father, Cecil, said the family was “grossly disturbed” by the repeated shots to his son.

Now the NFL and NFL Players Association are investigating the response by medical personnel during the game.

One specific hit ― helmet-to-helmet contact initiated by Broncos safety Darian Stewart ― prompted the compliance investigation. 

“The NFL is committed to the proper application of the concussion protocol,” the league spokesman said in a statement.

“In order to ensure that it is being uniformly applied across all 32 NFL teams, we have decided to initiate a review of the medical team’s response to the Cam Newton tackle, under the procedure set forth by the collective bargaining agreement,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement.

“Under that procedure, representatives from the league and the players association will review the relevant documents and video and interview the involved parties to ensure that the protocol was applied properly. It is important to note that initiation of this process does not mean that we have seen any evidence that the protocol was applied improperly, but simply reflects our obligation to ensure the health and safety of our players.”

The NFL safety advisory committee panel meets once a month and will discuss at the upcoming meeting whether to consider adopting college targeting penalty rules, which carry automatic ejection and a one-game suspension.

Donald Trump At Phyllis Schlafly Funeral: ‘She Was There For Me When It Was Not At All Fashionable’

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump eulogized conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly on Saturday, calling her a “strong, proud, fierce and tireless warrior,” at funeral services in St. Louis, Missouri.

Schlafly, who became a “founding mother” of the modern U.S. conservative movement by battling feminists in the 1970s and working tirelessly to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment, died on Monday at the age of 92.

She died at her home in the St. Louis suburb of Ladue, Missouri in the presence of her family, according to a statement from Eagle Forum, the conservative organization she founded. The cause of death was not given.

“Phyllis was there for me when it was not at all fashionable, trust me,” Trump attendees at the service. “Even at the age of 92, this beloved woman had more strength, fire, and heart than 50 strong politicians all put together,” Trump said.

She was still a conservative force and popular speaker in her 90s, endorsing Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and praising his policy on immigration.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

How To Crush Your Goals

2016-09-08-1473372986-5893749-HowToExceedYourGoalsIn2016HP.jpg

For many of us, 2016 began with a promise–a promise that this year we will accomplish that which has eluded us. Often it’s the everyday things that prove most difficult–managing your schedule, treating people the way you ought to, and keeping things in perspective when chaos is at hand.

There are two reasons why we’re so bad at reaching our goals:

The first is that we bite off more than we can chew. It may seem reasonable to pick up three or four new skills to add to your repertoire, but that’s an expectation the mind can’t execute. When we try to develop too many new skills at once, they become competing priorities that leave us distracted, discouraged and overwhelmed.

The second reason most self-improvement efforts are doomed to fail is that our emotions have a nasty habit of hijacking our behavior. Without a strong ability to recognize and manage our emotions as they occur, old habits are sure to die hard.

The Good News

The good news is that you can address both problems and make the changes you desire by resolving this year to develop a single skill–emotional intelligence (EQ).

Piles of research over the last two decades has shown that emotional intelligence is likely the single most powerful success factor yet discovered, affecting everything from your performance at work, to your mood and the quality of your personal life.

We’ve tested emotional intelligence alongside 33 other critical skills and found that it subsumes the majority of them. It’s no wonder that 90% of top performers are high in EQ and people with high EQs make $ 28,000 more annually than their low EQ counterparts.

But how does emotional intelligence play such a large role in so many important skills? Our brains are wired such that emotions are the root of all human behavior. Whether we’re aware of it or not, the motivation behind every action (no matter how small) is inherently emotional.

Here’s how it works:

All of your primary senses enter at the base of your brain (the light blue shaded area below). Before you can think rationally about what you’re experiencing, these signals must travel through the limbic system–the place where emotions are generated. This ensures you have an emotional reaction to events first.

2016-09-08-1473373081-6427119-HowToExceedYourGoalsIn2016HP2.jpg

Emotional intelligence ensures effective communication between the rational and emotional centers of your brain. As you improve your emotional intelligence, you improve your ability to understand and control the primary motivations for your behavior, which reaps dividends in everything you do every day. Emotional intelligence is powerful and efficient–it allows you to focus your energy on a single skill with tremendous results.

What Does Emotional Intelligence Look Like?

Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

2016-09-08-1473373131-6222603-HowToExceedYourGoalsIn2016HP3.jpg

Personal competence comprises your self-awareness and self-management skills, which focus more on you individually than on your interactions with other people. Personal competence is your ability to stay aware of your emotions and manage your behavior and tendencies.

  • Self-Awareness is your ability to accurately perceive your emotions and stay aware of them as they happen.
  • Self-Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and positively direct your behavior.

Social Competence is made up of your social awareness and relationship management skills; social competence is your ability to understand other people’s moods, behavior, and motives in order to respond effectively and improve the quality of your relationships.

  • Social Awareness is your ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and understand what is really going on.
  • Relationship Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions and the others’ emotions to manage interactions successfully.

While working on your emotional intelligence (you can take an emotional intelligence test to measure your progress) will improve a lot of different skills, there are five in particular that people tend to set goals around when the year changes. I’ll explain how you can improve each of these skills solely by focusing on your emotional intelligence.

Time Management

In this age of abundance, time is the one thing nobody has enough of. Perhaps that’s why Google receives 111 million searches a month for Time Management. Few people recognize how time management depends upon the emotional intelligence skills of self-management and relationship management.

Creating a good schedule is a very rational thing, but sticking to that schedule is decidedly emotional. Many of us start out every day with the best intentions to manage our time wisely. But then we receive a complicated email from a co-worker, a consuming phone call from a friend, or otherwise get sidetracked until our well-laid plans go up in flames. We spend the rest of the day trying to put out somebody else’s fire, or working to resolve issues that weren’t there in the morning. Before you know it, the day is gone and you’re completely off schedule.

When the distractions are your own, sticking to a schedule requires self-management. When the needs of others try to impede upon your plans, it takes effective relationship management to finesse the relationship while ensuring that your priorities are still addressed.

Embracing Change

Show me somebody who claims to love change, and I’ll show you a well-intentioned liar. Change is uncomfortable for everyone at times, and for many of us it makes our skin crawl. Those who apply well-honed self-awareness and self-management skills tolerate change much more successfully than others. Self-awareness enables you to adjust comfortably to change because it gives you the perspective needed to realize when change is coming and how it’s affecting you.

Self-management keeps you cool in the moment–often with a reminder that even the most stable, trusted facets of your life are not completely under your control. Those most averse to change, who possess great self-awareness and self-management skills, even set aside a small amount of time each week to list possible changes and what actions they can take in response.

Assertiveness

Emotional intelligence is commonly mistaken as a synonym for “nice.” In fact, the most emotionally intelligent response is often one where you openly and directly express yourself. To paraphrase Aristotle, getting angry is easy. Getting angry with the right person, at the right time, and to the right degree requires emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence doesn’t allow lashing out, or making yourself into someone else’s doormat. To be assertive, you have to know what you’re feeling, read the other party accurately, and express yourself in a way that garners the best result. People with high EQs do this naturally.

Making Great Decisions

It has taken the world far too long to wake up to the fact that emotions simply cannot–and should not–be ignored when making decisions. Neuroscience shows us that sometimes the most rational thing you can do is trust your emotions when making a decision. But in order to make this work, you have to be aware of the emotions you’re feeling, know why you’re having them, and see how they factor into the situation at hand. Here, there is no substitute for emotional intelligence.

Giving Outstanding Presentations

Few things strike primal fear in people like standing under the spotlight in a room full of people. Even the most eloquent among us can be reduced to spewing verbal garbage once the sheer anxiety of public speaking takes hold. That’s why a knock-’em-dead presenter’s most inspiring presentation is often the one he delivers to himself. A bit of positive self-talk–reminding himself of all the times he has succeeded and how qualified he is to speak on the topic–enables the effective speaker to use his performance anxiety to sharpen his focus and make him more articulate. If you think that’s silly, then you probably haven’t tried it. Emotional intelligence doesn’t just make you aware of your emotions; it equips you with strategies for keeping them from holding you back.

Bringing It All Together

Give improving your emotional intelligence a real shot. You’ll be surprised where it takes you.

The 7 Hard Truths About Aging That Everyone Should Know

We’ve updated this post that ran a few years ago because, as we all know, every day is a new learning opportunity ― and we feel smarter now. Plus once in awhile, it’s good to share collective wisdom. Here are seven life lessons about aging worth being reminded of:

1. Small aches can sometimes be ignored.
Growing older is not a pain-free process. Knees stiffen up. Feet sprout bunions. And fingers that once flew over the keyboard with the greatest of ease now sometimes cramp up.

Most likely, none of this will kill you, which is why I say: Do your best to just keep moving. One of my biggest worries is that I will step on the medical treadmill and not be able to step off. You know, become one of those people whose life is structured around when they see their doctors.

I fear it’s an easy trap to fall into. This year, I developed plantar fasciitis in my left foot. I consulted a doctor since not being able to walk without pain definitely put a crimp in my life. I had orthotics made (two visits) and had six weeks of physical therapy (12 visits). I also spent 15 minutes a day doing exercises faithfully and yes, the problem did clear up. But think about it: My foot hurt and it took 14 medical appointments to fix it.

What also happened during that period was that my treatments gobbled up so much of my spare time — a limited reservoir to start — that I saw fewer friends, had less fun, and worried more about myself than is probably healthy. The staff and other patients at the PT office became a sort-of surrogate social life. Showered with by their attention and basking in their endless concern about my sore foot, it started to feel good to go there. I don’t want that to happen (although I do miss getting my foot massaged).

2. Your doctor is only as good as his or her front office staff.
When we were kids, the doctor was a solo practitioner and his wife ran the front desk, made the appointments and did his billing. This, thanks to the demolition of the health care delivery system, is no longer the case. Now, doctors work for medical conglomerates, are inaccessible to patients by design and their front office staffs are either untrained in customer service or hired for their ability to not bother the doctor with your pesky communications. You call and are immediately put on hold before you can get your name out. You have to chase down your test results because they don’t reliably call you with them. They regularly lose things or don’t deliver messages. If you need a prescription, it takes a week of calling for the message to get through.

In 2014, I got myself a new doctor. He emails me directly. For real. If I have a question, I shoot him a short email and he responds quickly. Not surprisingly, my medical records are also online and his office staff is pleasant and capable. But his is a concierge practice. That means I pay him $ 250 a year out-of-pocket for getting the kind of care that used to come for free. And we won’t even go to “what about those who can’t afford it?” The gap will be huge, that’s the “what about.”

3. Too many people (still) turn to plastic surgery thinking they’ll be happier.
My favorite Mommy blogger once asked her minions on Facebook this question: “Silicon or saline?” She added “This is for a friend. Please don’t judge.” Sorry, I am judging.

When I last checked, the request had more than 50 comments, most recommending one choice or the other. I wished there was a “none of the above” box to be checked.

I especially hate it when older women get Botox needles stuck in their faces or go under the knife to remove sagging neck skin. We can always tell. The sad part is that some think that looking younger will make them feel happier.

Our beauty comes from within. If it matters to someone that you have crinkles around your eyes, why are they in your life?

4. Retirement looks different now.
Retirement used to be a decision you made and you controlled when it happened. It was something you saved for, made a plan for, and counted on your employer’s help doing via a pension. When it was time to go, the boss ordered your gold watch and you dug out the cruise brochures you’d been collecting. You were done with work.

Then it got complicated. Retirement, if it does exist, doesn’t resemble its old self anymore. One reason is that we are living longer, healthier lives, and are at risk of outliving our savings. We feel younger than our years and so it makes some sense that we want to extend our work career. Throw in a recession that drained savings and put stress on our assets, and you have a bunch of baby boomers who are still going to the office every day.

People about to retire are now asked about their next chapters. No cruise brochures are involved, but starting hobby-based businesses may be.

5. Aging improves your attitude.
When I go on a trip, I used to always pre-pack. I would drag out everything in my closet and try it on, then make neat stacks of yes, no, and maybes. The process took hours and invariably, I always wound up packing just my most comfortable clothes, the ones I wore every day.

Aging’s secret miracle is that your attitude changes. You know intuitively to go straight for the comfortable clothes and can skip the trying on everything else part. You do the same thing with relationships. You weed through them and leave the toxic ones behind. You drive a car that works for you, not the neighbors. You live in a place that impresses no one but yourself. You learn to say no to requests and demands on your time and money. You want to waste neither.

6. Politicians still don’t talk about our issues.

Even in this, the Mother of All Elections, the two main party candidates barely mention the things that matter most to older Americans. The silence is deafening when it comes to discussion about the stability of Social Security, the increasing burden on our health care system, the blatant ageism that exists in the workforce, the nation’s unpreparedness for the aging tsunami that’s headed our way. And family caregivers ― the 34 million men and women who currently perform $ 500 billion of services with little or no support ― what’s the plan to provide them with some relief? Their numbers are continuing to grow each year.

7. Living too long is a real problem.

Some people don’t find the prospect of living to 100+ all that attractive. Basically, we are happy to live as long as possible as long as we are enjoying life. Good health and financial security are key. Without them, what’s the point?

Hillary Clinton: Half Of Trump Supporters Belong In ‘Basket Of Deplorables’

NEW YORK – Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said on Friday that half the supporters of her Republican rival Donald Trump belonged in a “basket of deplorables” of people who were racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, or Islamophobic.

Speaking at an evening fundraiser in New York, the former U.S. secretary of state said Trump had given voice to hateful rhetoric from such individuals through his behavior as a candidate for the White House.

“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,’” Clinton said. “Unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

Some of those people were irredeemable, she said, but they did not represent America.

The other basket of Trump’s supporters constituted individuals desperate for change who felt let down by the government and the economy, Clinton added.

“They don’t buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different,” Clinton said. “Those are people we have to understand and empathize with, as well.”

Clinton’s comments drew a rebuke from Kellyanne Conway, the campaign manager of the Republican nominee, who said in a message on social media network Twitter that Clinton had insulted millions of Americans.

Many of Clinton’s fundraisers have been closed to the media, but her Friday remarks, preceding a performance by singer Barbra Streisand, were open to journalists.

“What’s truly deplorable isn’t just that Hillary Clinton made an inexcusable mistake in front of wealthy donors and reporters happened to be around to catch it, it’s that Clinton revealed just how little she thinks of the hard-working men and women of America,” Trump senior communications adviser Jason Miller said in a statement.

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill noted a previous speech in which she accused Trump of embracing a brand of U.S. political conservatism associated with white nationalism and nativism known as the “alt right” movement.

“Obviously not everyone supporting Trump is part of the alt right, but alt right leaders are with Trump,” Merrill said on Twitter. “And their supporters appear to make up half his crowd, when you observe the tone of his events.”

Clinton’s comments were followed by a concert by Streisand, who performed a version of the Stephen Sondheim song “Send in the Clowns” that parodied the New York businessman.

(Reporting by Jeff Mason; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

21 Spirit Lifters To Help You Get Back On Track To Living Your Highest Path

During our life journey, we will at some point (or many points) find ourselves in a funk and forget about the lighter side of life. Life’s bumps are hard to escape because they are a normal part of a life well-loved.

Our storms often bring as much value to our life journey as our highlights and happy moments. When life upsets and challenges bring us down, we can use these experiences as opportunities to transform and learn something new about life. We can use our experiences to see life through new eyes.

When we feel ready to move through rough patches, it can be tricky to navigate our way back to level ground. It can be challenging to remember how to feel light and content in life. Sometimes it’s helpful to have a guide to find our way back to loving the lives we are in.

These 21 spirit lifters, are practices I go to when I need some extra help to get back on track to living on my highest path. If any feel right for you, give them a try.

1) Breathe
Intentional breathing is a powerful way to quiet mind chatter and step into the present moment. When I get caught up in the story that life is hard, I have learned the best thing to do is give myself permission to put the story on hold and focus on my deep intentional breathing. A useful practice is to take a full breath in and slowly release the tension and story you may be holding on to. Repeat as often as necessary to help bring more ease into tense moments.

2) Move
When we are engaged in physical activities, we give our minds a break and our health a boost. Moving our bodies helps us release stagnation and instead feel a rush of feel-good endorphins The very act of moving can help us remember everything in life is fluid, nothing is permanent. Whatever stress or challenge we may go through, it will eventually pass. For more inspiration, read 5 Easy Tips to Add More Movement in Your Day.

3) Connect With Nature
Life is like a dream and nature is the extraordinary backdrop transforming the dream into a beautiful miracle. No matter where we live in the world, we are surrounded with natural beauty we can experience on a deep soul level. Step outside, notice the sound of the wind and the warmth of the sun on your skin. Feel the rain dampen your clothes and watch the cool brisk air transform your breath before your eyes. Start to truly experience the incredible sights and sounds before you, and pay attention to your physical response. Connecting with nature awakens the spirit of who we are. Nature helps us come back to the part of us that sometimes gets buried in the noise of life.

4) Give Thanks

There is always something to be thankful for. When we put our attention on what we are grateful for, we begin to notice more reasons and evidence why life is a gift to be enjoyed. Gratitude rituals are powerful and they can be implemented at any time throughout the day. Being thankful gives us hope by helping us remember there is a brighter side to life. For more tips on gratitude, check out 7 Ways Gratitude Brightens Our View.

5) Acts of Kindness
It is uplifting to genuinely give to others without expectation or strings attached. The act of giving is often where the true gift resides. Offering others our kindness, helps us move our focus away from our worries and dramas, and instead connect to our inner spirit. When we authentically give our love and light to others, we are in essence being in our love and light.

6) Dream
As humans we get to use our imaginations to create, envision and dream. There is a real sense of hope and vitality that comes along with giving ourselves permission to dream big dreams. When we were children, it was second nature to dream and to intuitively believe in our creative potential. We haven’t lost our power to dream, sometimes we just need a gentle reminder it is okay to spend time creating new visions for our lives. Take a break from worries, and enjoy how it feels to be hopeful and excited about new possibilities. For more inspiration, check out 7 Simple Strategies To Transform Your Invisible Dreams And Goals Into Reality.


7) Be Mindful With Words

Our words are powerful, especially when spoken aloud. The words we give life to can spread like wildfire. What we say may be used to enrich our lives and the lives of others. Our words can also be hurtful and may cause suffering. When I get caught in a pattern of judging others or feeling bad about myself, I have found it helpful to pay attention to my inner dialogue and words I am speaking aloud. Often placing our attention on the tone of our words is all it takes to set a new intention of speaking kindly to ourselves and others. It is also helpful to give ourselves permission to say less words and have fun noticing how it feels to be more mindful with how we speak.

8) Sleep
There is a lot to be said for getting adequate sleep on a regular basis. In this driven society, many of us push our limits and then don’t take care to recharge. It is no wonder we can get stuck in a rut or feel depleted. Sleep deprivation is dreadful. Sometimes a solid night’s sleep is exactly what we need to hit the restart button and see life from a fresh perspective. Arianna Huffington’s newest book, The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time is a wonderful resource to inspire us to change the way we view our relationship with sleep.

9) Undo
When we get swept up in the endless act of doing, it can be hard to remember how to feel light. When we give ourselves permission to ‘simply be’, we make space to notice the miracles around us. When we slow down, we can savor the moments before us and appreciate life for the gift that it is. For more inspiration, read: Why We Should Spend More Time Being and Less Time Doing.

10) Spontaneity
Sometimes we can get so caught up in regiment, routine and structure that life feels dull and predictable. Sometimes what we really need is a reminder to step outside of our comfort zone and add more zest and excitement to our lives. There are many ways we can be spontaneous. The idea is to follow our heart and take a chance every now and again for the sake of taking a chance.

11) Dress Up
Dressing up can be more about giving ourselves a gift, than about striving to impress others. Our style is a creative expression of who we are, and we can use it as a way to lift our spirits. When I want to feel good on a special occasion or give myself a boost on a gloomy day, I love to paint my nails a bright color or style my hair. Putting some care and attention into our physical appearance feels good. Dressing the part can help us feel confident and comfortable to be who we are.

12) Be Open to Receive
How easy is it for you to receive? For many people (myself included) it can be way more comfortable to give than to receive. Living life with a generous spirit feels good, and it can brighten the path for others too. In this light, it may seem as though the more we give, the better we will feel. This is not necessarily the case. Givers, especially ‘serial givers’, often end up feeling depleted by not balancing the energy they give out, with allowing it back in. When we open up to the idea of giving AND receiving, we allow more peace and balance in our lives.

13) Get Creative

We all have the capacity to create. It usually boils down to our belief in whether or not we think we are creative. When we tap into our creative energy, we are in essence connecting deeper to our inner spirit. There are many creative endeavors we can enjoy. Activities such as: cooking, building, gardening, storytelling, photography, painting, and writing are just some of the ways we can engage our creative senses. Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, is a fantastic read and intriguing way to view how we can openly dance with our creative senses.

14) Celebrate
How often do you take time to celebrate where you are in your life at this very moment? Sometimes we travel through life quickly while we chase one moving target after the other. We can forget to take time to celebrate how far we have come. Giving ourselves the gift of celebratory time not only feels good, it can have a way of putting life in perspective. There are many ways we can celebrate: with friends and loved ones, enjoying a special ritual, or giving ourselves a well-deserved pat on the back for being amazing exactly as we are.

15) Connect
As human beings, we thrive when we connect with the people we are surrounded by. We also receive a sense of peace and clarity when we regularly listen in and make it a priority to have a strong connection with our inner selves. When we are truly connected to who we are, we lead our lives from this truth. From this place, we do not need to seek and search for truths outside of ourselves to feel okay – we know we are okay. When we don’t have an agenda in our interactions, we receive the full benefits of being present and open to witnessing who people really are. Our interactions can help us see how similar and connected we all are.

16) Adventure
When was the last time you went on an adventure? Being adventurous doesn’t always mean traveling the world, climbing mountains or white water rafting. While these kinds of adventures are exciting and definitely lead to a life well-lived, they aren’t always accessible in our daily lives. Adopting an adventurous mindset is something we can do anytime, no matter where we are. We can choose to enjoy more fun and excitement without packing our bags and leaving home. We can add an adventurous spin on the activities and hobbies we love to do. Each day we wake up, we receive another chance to have a unique experience we will never exactly replicate again.

17) Read
There are many gifted writers in the world whose purpose and passion is to entertain, inspire and add to the lives of others. When we are in a funk, it can be helpful to pick up a favorite book and become swept away in story. The art of language and the creative power of human imagination has created countless masterpieces for us to enjoy. Reading is a gift we can turn to when we want to learn, be entertained or escape to a safe space that engages our imagination and senses.

18) Laughter
Laughter truly is the best medicine. We can immerse ourselves in laughter during happy times and in times of distress. Some of my fondest memories are of deep rooted belly laughs shared with good friends. Many of those shared laughs happened during heightened times of upset. Laughter can be used to pull us out of the doldrums and to help make our spirits bright. We can also use laughter to connect back to our passion for living fully, and to experience the many joys and amazing things about life. For more inspiration, read How to Tap Into Your Joy.

19) Honor Your Boundaries
Each of us is in charge of our own personal boundaries. We teach other people how to treat us. If we feel like we are doormats and our boundaries aren’t being respected, it is because we need to honor ourselves first. It can be wildly uncomfortable to sit in the uneasiness of holding a boundary with others who overstep. Sometimes it feels easier to give in and be the people pleaser. But turning our back on ourselves always comes with a price. The more we honor ourselves, the easier our interactions become and the more settled we feel. For more inspiration, read How to Stand in Your Power, and Stop Giving it Away.

20) Be Curious
We are all explorers on this great life adventure. We get to create our own life story and make sense of the world in our unique way. In childhood, we asked endless questions because we were thirsty to know about all things in life. As adults we can lose our passion for learning and discovering new things about life. One way to open up to be students again, is to ask questions and be curious. We can remind ourselves we aren’t meant to have it all figured out, we are meant to be having the adventure of a lifetime. For more inspiration, read 11 Powerful Tips to Keep Your Spirits Bright.

21) Be Gentle
Life can throw us curve balls and we don’t always bounce back the same way. There is no right way to do life. We don’t all have to be on a quest to learn and grow either. Sometimes what we really need is to give ourselves permission to be exactly where we are – whether that is in a place of pure bliss or in the depths of despair. Our highest path doesn’t mean we have to always wear a giant smile and have life figured out. Our highest path is being okay with who we are, exactly as we are.

No matter where we are on our life journey, the greatest gift and spirit booster we can give ourselves, is to love who we are and be gentle with our human selves.

Dodge Darts, Fila Sweaters and Suicide: The Danger of Facades

2016-09-09-1473458330-226319-ScreenShot20160909at12.39.07PM.png

When I was ten, I once sobbed for three straight days. No relative had died. I hadn’t been bullied for wearing unbearably tight tennis shorts (not this time). And no, Welcome Back Kotter hadn’t been cancelled. It was a sad event, not a wholesale national tragedy.

In 1976, my parents sold their ’71 Dodge Dart for a new Mercedes, to go along with their Cadillac. And I couldn’t stop crying. So much so that I even missed Hebrew School- so it wasn’t all bad. Mind you, I was a sensitive boy who’s crying jags could be triggered by everything from a botched haircut to Cindy Brady asking Santa to restore Carol’s voice for Christmas.

What I remember from that time, 40 years hence, was being acutely aware that part of my youth was going away. See, I was an unremitting nostalgist long before I began posting lists of 90′s songs on Facebook. But what I really intuited was a shift, maybe of values. It seemed like the final transition from our more modest life in the flats of Van Nuys to a posher existence in the Jewish Alps of Encino. And even then, with only my gut and intense sensitivity to guide me, I sensed a hollowness in the striving. So much so that my parents remember me finally blurting out the reason I was so upset. Sounding like a ten year-old mini-Marxist, I apparently yelled “It’s because you’re selling out!’

You may be wondering what my disproportionately emotional response to unloading a domestic sedan has to do with National Suicide Prevention Week. Even after typing 3 drafts, my fingertips were asking the same question. And it’s true, this piece has a more esoteric, roundabout thesis than my usual “Don’t eat onion rings after midnight.” Or “My daughter’s going to college. Me, sad.”

What I think this is about is the immense power we give to projecting success to the world. It’s about the need to signal, especially in the social media era, mental well-being, even when it’s not the case. It’s about presenting the world a façade of contentment instead of asking for help. That’s what my Dad did. Right up until he took his own life.

Now I am not claiming to have possessed the predictive powers of a boy Nostradamus or a kid Nate Silver. Nor was I a child with a novelist’s ability to see the grand scope of my family’s saga while it was happening. No, I couldn’t extrapolate all of this from selling a car. But I did intuit that things were changing and I didn’t like them. Either that, or my tennis shorts were too tight.

In a million years, I’d never have predicted this story ending in my father’s suicide. Not my Dad, who until the minute it happened, I had considered the happiest person I knew. To this day, I half-assume my waking hours without him are the bad dream. And the ubiquitous dream where he’s still with us is the real life.

I have never cared about labels, as a kid or today. At 50, my wardrobe consists of one pair of jeans, one pair or Vans and a rotating collection of identical black pocket t-shirts. It’s not a punk rock fashion statement, per se. But I do look like I’m dressed from the Henry Rollins mail-order catalogue. I don’t care about designer suits or designer glasses or designer watches. Plus my utilitarian fashion philosophy is aided by the fact that I couldn’t afford them even if I did care.

Sure, I wanted Quicksilver chord shorts instead of OPs. I said I was anti-materialistic, not a farmer. My mother took great pride in trying to dress my brothers and I in various Fila tennis sweaters and sweat jackets. Now, I wouldn’t mind wearing those ironically at a Wes Anderson costume party. But at the time, I felt like an imposter. Especially because I rooted for everyone but Bjorn Borg, while still secretly wishing I had his hair and headband.

In every aspect of life, I witness parents placing inordinate value on labels, never more so than in elite private schools. The power of labels is why parents knowingly send their kids to insane high schools that destroy their kids’spirits and self-esteem, just so they can brag about it at Soul Cycle and throw a sticker on the back of their Tesla. It’s why someone (me) would stay at an elite school where the wealthiest Gentile boys formed a group called the Sons of Hitler and drew swastikas on the lockers of Jewish seventh graders. Yet, transferring was never an option. Such is the power of a label.

The truth is, we all project facades. We present to the world, through Facebook, happier marriages, better kids, more satisfying jobs and fuller bank accounts than we actually have. I’m not trying to present myself as some holier-than-thou gag writing Dali Lama.

In fact, instances of my colossal hypocrisy abound. I think we can all agree there is no group of people more smug in their zealotry than college freshmen home for their first winter break. Imagine how annoyed my parents must have been with my intro-course socialism, ranting against the capitalist system, quoting Marcuse and C. Wright Mills, all the while eating prime rib at a fancy Maui steakhouse. Or, the time as a temp at Rocketdyne I refused to file any paperwork relating to the military-industrial complex. Where did I think I was working? The place had ‘rocket” in its name!

Even as I decry how beholden we are to labels, I wonder about the damage my own prestige obsessions have caused. When I allow myself to fall into a guilt spiral, I think about my insistence on going to Brown over a UC. And the youthful shit fit I threw over not wanting to transfer even when my parents first encountered money problems my junior year. Did my adherence to the Ivy League “label” incur debts my dad was never able to escape? My guess is that the two are unrelated. But these are the kinds of questions your brain asks as you forever ponder the unanswerable questions regarding the suicide of a parent.

Every generation creates its own facades to signify “making it.” It’s why we’d wear Knights of the Round Table collared shirts from Marshall’s to fool the near-sighted kids in middle school into thinking they were genuine Polo. It why somebody generations ago changed the pronunciation of my last from “Bay-har” to “Bee-har”, presumably to sound less Istanbul and more ‘Merican.

I will never understand the pressure my father must have been under as an immigrant’s son to show he had made it, to signal that he was no longer the Sephardic kid from Boyle Heights who swept up at a drugstore to pay his way through UCLA. I don’t know. And I’ll never know. I can only surmise that the pressure he placed on himself to indicate he’d made it was too immense. And the shame in admitting weakness or asking for help was too great. Thus, for a long time, he created a façade. It was not an accurate reflection of either his financial wherewithal or his inner life. That to me is the great tragedy of this and most suicides. When someone who is loved by all feels they can turn to no one. When the compulsion to keep up appearances outweighs everything else.

You just wish he were here so you could say, we never needed the fancy school or the country clubs or the house on the Westside. None of that ultimately mattered. I’d be a lot happier with a Dad and maybe a ’71 Dodge Dart.
