Daily Inspiration — Non-violent through and through I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today -- my own government.

Daily Inspiration — Challenging your own beliefs Inevitably, most of what we read fits nicely with what we already believe, and rightly so. But don't limit your reading to the familiar and the comfortable. Once or twice a week, take in something that you deeply disagree with. Read something that you know in advance is wrong and misguided, even morally depraved.

Daily Inspiration — Knowledge and Complacency "Knowledge is not a series of self consistent theories that converges towards an ideal view; it is rather an ever increasing ocean of mutually incompatible (and perhaps even incommensurable) alternatives, each single theory, each fairy tale, each myth"

Daily Inspiration — No comfort He who craves the light of God neglects his ease for ardor, his life for love--knowing that contentment is the shadow not the light. The great yearning that sweeps eternity is a yearning to praise, a yearning to serve. And when the waves of that yearning swell in our souls all the barriers are pushed aside: the crust of callousness, the hysteria of vanity, the orgies of arrogance.

Daily Inspiration — Would you want to know? The story appeared, astonishingly, in The New England Journal of Medicine in the summer of 2007. Adopted as a kitten by the medical staff, Oscar reigned over one floor of the Steere House nursing home in Rhode Island. When the cat would sniff the air, crane his neck and curl up next to a man or woman, it was a sure sign of impending demise. The doctors would call the families to come in for their last visit.

The Other Half of Science In this essay, I propose that everything we consider the "scientific world-view" is only half the story, and that science must expand its foundations if it aspires to be a complete account of reality. A reductionist approach to science has become so ubiquitous that many scientists find it difficult to imagine that science can be done in any other way. But a great deal of evidence cries out for holistic explanation.

Daily Inspiration — New Year’s Resolutions By and large, willpower doesn't work. When you're ready for a new habit, it will become difficult, then impossible to maintain the old one. In fact, one good application of willpower is to force yourself to continue in an old habit that feels wrong, to allow yourself to feel deeply the motivation to change.

Daily Inspiration—Liberation from Self-Forcing Our habit of seeking control is modeled on a hostile external world. But "self-control" is a problematic concept.Imagine clamping your jaw closed with your hand to prevent your mouth from eating too much! We don't do that, but what we do is akin to setting up a war within ourselves. We seek to use the surface mind, the conscious and "rational" part to hold in check the impulses that run below the surface.

Daily Inspiration — If Aaron Copland were Russian Aaron Copland wrote archetypically American music with depth, originality and an immediate popular appeal. Dmitri Kabalevsky did the equivalent for Russia. Listen to the First Cello Concerto once. It's fun and easy to love. Listen to the Second Cello Concerto twice. It requires more concentration and rewards your attention amply. Today is Kabalevsky's birthday.

Daily Inspiration — Lest the answers eclipse the questions An individual dies when he ceases to be surprised. I am surprised every morning that I see the sunshine again. When I see an act of evil, I'm not accommodated. I don't accommodate myself to the violence that goes on everywhere; I'm still surprised. That's why I'm against it, why I can hope against it. We must learn how to be surprised. Not to adjust ourselves. I am the most maladjusted person in society. --Heschel

Daily Inspiration — Matriarchy Males have been in charge of the world for the last 10,000 years. We've created some things that are really worthwhile: yoga, chocolate, the Apollo moon shots, streaming video. In some other areas, our performance has been more questionable: traffic jams, form 1040, nuclear weapons, Windows 10. I say it's time to give women a chance to run things.

Daily Inspiration — Flexible thinking Think of your ideas as children's blocks that you might mix and match. They are not heavy, unless you believe that they are. They are rightfully your playthings. Do not say solemnly "This is my belief", but as a child, kick it aside when it does not serve you, and make a new one. The ideas are your blocks. You can use them playfully to build scaffolds for your understanding or you can use them to block your view.

Daily Inspiration — The Hard Problem In the 17th Century, Rene' Descartes was both scientist and Christian philosopher. Elisabeth von der Pfalz was 24-year-old daughter of a Bohemian prince when she wrote to Descartes, challenging his dualism with clear-eyed questions. There followed a seven-year correspondence between the two, in which Descartes faced up to the fact that the question he had taken on deserved the name of Hard Problem.

Daily Inspiration — Vita activa & Vita contemplativa Every kind of activity, even the process of mere thought, must culminate in the absolute quiet of contemplation. Every movement, the movements of body and soul as well as of speech and reasoning, must cease before truth. Truth, be it the ancient truth of Being or the Christian truth of the living God, can reveal itself only in complete human stillness.

Daily Inspiration — Fear of Death is a Cultural Artifact Deep within, in the animal part of us, we are not afraid of death. This is something that our culture has imposed on us. Philosophically, we are afraid of annihilation, of becoming nothing, and that concept of death is part of Western "scientific" culture.

There were things that people were not supposed to do in the Agora, including urination and (strangely enough) consumption of food. But Diogenes professed that what we do in private we should not be ashamed to do in public.

The penetration of yoga into the mainstream of American culture is one of the most positive developments of the last half century.
