Walk Talk – Shoes for Pronators

I weigh 250 pounds and always break down the insides of my shoes, which makes my knees hurt. Can you recommend a good walking shoe for pronators? Look for walking shoes with exceptional support and cushioning. Go to a shoe store where an expert will wait on you, not just a clerk who doesn’t know anything about shoes. Most of all, you need to have …

Vegetarianism: Part of the Spiritual Heart of Asia

Over the past 25 years I have travelled and lived in a number of Asian countries. This has given me an insight into the rich tapestry of spiritual practices there, with vegetarianism being a common thread. I have made friends with many Chinese Taoists and Buddhists, Indian Hindus and Sikhs, and Malay Muslims; our mutual spiritual interests have given us a common platform on which …

The Story of a Changed Man

Darrell was recently retired from the military as a slim and fit 35 year old with a 33-inch waste when he started his career with the fast food industry. As manager, Darrell worked, ate, and breathed fast food. However, his metabolism was no match for a diet of cheeseburgers and French fries and after only seven years Darrell more than doubled in size, weighing a …

Body Piercing and Tattoos: Why do you do these things to yourself?

BODY PIERCING AND tattoos are as mysterious to me as ordering a shrimp dinner at an IHOP. Why would any thinking person do it? Punching a hole in one’s skin for the purposes of hanging a small ornament or etching one’s skin with a colored ink — all in the name of fashion — to me seems utterly silly and rather primitive. This kind of …

Morals and Society

We have now seen how parents should raise their children. Now comes the question of what role, if any, society should play in fostering these values. Some believe that society should play a strong role, often tying it to their particular religious faith. Others believe that society should play no role at all, saying that individuals should dictate their own moral code. I take a …

As stated previously, the only solution to our current quandary is to raise our children to be better than ourselves. And the first step toward that is being available for the children and being around to …

The Root of the Problem

Why did this catastrophe occur? We could probably trace it back for generations, but it would take much too long and would be dreadfully boring, in all likelihood. Let us instead pick up during the 1950s, the so-called “golden age” of American history. The country had rebuilt from World War II and was entering a period of prosperity. Dwight Eisenhower’s promise of “a chicken in …

Parenting – are you ready?

In our never-ending preparation for our wilderness trip, let us compare this next section to a lantern. In a very dark forest, a lantern is an absolute necessity. Without it, we will not be able to venture much beyond the edge of the forest without becoming hopelessly lost, unsure of our bearings and unaware of potential hazards in our path. It is the lantern that …

Understanding Morality

Before we set out on any schemes to improve ourselves or our society, we must first define what morality is and what it is not, in order to preclude confusion later on. You would not want to venture into unfamiliar woods without a map or trail guide of some kind. Consider this your guide to the dark, murky, and often confusing forest that is morality. …
