Infographic: The No. 1 Date Rape Drug is 100% Legal

The No. 1 Date Rape Drug is 100% Legal Blog Infographic: The No. 1 Date Rape Drug is 100% Legal In the wake of sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the conversation has abruptly moved away from the misconduct allegations and towards the question of whether Kavanaugh drank too much (or even lied about it before the Senate Judiciary Committee). Earlier this summer, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three deca...

Live The Questions To Find The Answers

“If you live the questions, life will move you to the answers.” – Deepak Chopra, Indian-American physician, a holistic health/New Age guru, and alternative medicine practitioner (born 1947)These are wise words from a person that millions find inspirational and insightful. The fact that everyone sometimes finds it difficult to figure out the answers to seemingly impossible or complex questions doesn’t negate the fact that there are ways to go about finding the right path – if we choose to do so. The secret seems to be to embrace the questions and live them, not do everything we can to avoid them, as if in so doing they’ll somehow go away. They won’t. It’s only by living in the present and doing our best to address the questions that we’ll have any hope of finding the answers.The quest isn’t...

Cultivate Awareness To Know Love

“When the robot mind is mastered, undisciplined thinking can and is replaced by awareness. Awareness can know love.” – Barry LongGoing through the day on automatic pilot is something most people can identify with at times. Who hasn’t felt like a zombie just going through the motions, trying to accomplish seemingly boring or repetitive tasks without giving them much thought? Letting our minds go elsewhere, not being in the moment – we’ve all done that, right? Well, we aren’t robots, so maybe this isn’t such a good idea. Maybe we should tune in, take a time out and think about the here and now. In essence, celebrate what it is to be human and to live in the present. This is called awareness.And it can lead to love.Powerful statement, to be sure, but there’s a certain element of truth to it. ...

Give Meaning To Your Life

“It’s not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute…that gives meaning to our lives.” – Tony Robbins, American advisor to leaders, life coach, author and motivational speaker (born 1960)As a society, we’re all about consuming, it seems. We want and we strive and when we get what we’re after, we’re not very often satisfied. Could it be that the compulsive desire to acquire is robbing us of being able to discover the meaning in life? After all, what truly matters to us isn’t likely that shiny new car in the driveway or having so much money that cost is no object. It is, however, likely tied to the relationships we have with others, how we feel when we see our child’s smile of delight, the overwhelming awe we experience when we see nature’s majesty. There are, in fact, so many compon...

You Can Be Fulfilled Despite Circumstances

“Fulfillment has nothing to do with circumstances.” – GangajiMillions of people are born into rather difficult circumstances. Some are born poor. Some have highly dysfunctional families. Some are born into starvation and disease. Some have seemingly normal home environments, yet they’re subjected to various forms of abuse. There are educational, religious, cultural, societal and other influences that affect the development of a child from birth. Yet none of these can prevent the realization of fulfillment in life.It would seem a contradiction that someone with dire circumstances, a poor upbringing, little to no education, no warmth or social skills could ever feel fulfilled. Perhaps the great miracle is that they can achieve fulfillment, despite circumstances, whatever they may be.Fulfillm...

Discover Your Life’s Purpose

“The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why.” – Mark Twain, birth name Samuel Clemens, American author and humorist, most noted for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1835-1910)One of the seeming great mysteries in life is why we’re here and what we’re supposed to do with this life we’ve been given. Many of us struggle for years trying to find the answer – as if that answer is suddenly supposed to pop into our heads or appear before us like a shining beacon in a dark and stormy night. If only it were that simple, right?Still, the goal to discover your life’s purpose does have merit and is something that each of us should spend some time and effort on. It isn’t going to consume o...

With Love, Anything Is Possible

“With our love, we could save the world.” – George Harrison, English musician, singer, songwriter, lead guitarist of the Beatles (1943-2001)It isn’t often that we think about saving the world – not after we leave our teens or early adulthood. There are so many other priorities that occupy our thoughts. We need to pay for college or pay off student loans, if we’ve completed our degree. The idea of finding a mate, settling down and starting a family begins to take shape. Or we’re so consumed with our career or ticking off items on our must-see and must-do list that a focus on others somehow doesn’t cut it. But at the root of it all, underneath everything we tell ourselves we must or want to do, isn’t there the core of love?In truth, love makes anything possible. It might be fair to say that ...

Losing My Son to Addiction: One Year Later

By Sherrie Gonzales-KolbIt’s been 10 months since I wrote “He’s Gone: A Mother’s Nightmare,” ever closer to that one-year mark. Some people call it an “angelversary.”How do you celebrate the anniversary of the death of the person you loved most in this world?I watched my son spiral out of control with marijuana, acid, alcohol, and finally heroin. He couldn’t battle the demon addiction on his own, and so it swept him away. It didn’t happen quickly. It was a slow, painful death. I watched him go from sloppy drunkenness to irretrievably nodded out. I simply could not reach him. My love could not reach him.I’m still trying to wrap my head around his absence in this world. He has ceased to be, and I am still in shock, 10 months later, after I left my son at the hospital to be taken by the coron...
