Love

Monday, January 13th, 2014

No topic in literature is more thoroughly explored than  love. We have  puppy love, sexual love, romantic love, parental It's_all_about_lovelove, the list seems endless. The first novel Don Quijote by Miguel Cervantes explored the nature of chivalry and the delusional love Don Quijote imagined he had for Dulcinea. In some way it seems appropriate that the very first major literary work about love explored the delusional nature of romantic love.

In the English language there is only one word for love but in other languages  there are sometimes as many as twenty different words to describe  different  types of love. In Spanish there is a clear  demarcation between carnal love—te quiero—and  platonic love—te amo. Of course the two can overlap.

In today’s world love is misunderstood more than ever. We have  shows on television such as The Matchmaker and The Bachelor which propose to help people  fall in love and form permanent relationships. In many  indigenous civilizations the idea of romantic love did not exist at all. Marriages were  primarily arranged  for the economic benefit of the  tribe  or the family and in many cases cross cousin marriage was almost obligatory to ensure long term alliances  among  families.

Joy, Innocence and Brilliance

Monday, November 18th, 2013

One of the unexpected pleasures of my recent trip to Berlin was getting an opportunity to spend time with  Innerwise triple-tagfounder Uwe Albrecht’s five, eight, and seventeen year old daughters,  Shanti, Gaia, and Hannah. All three are fluent in both German and English and know a little bit of Spanish as well.  They live about an hour’s drive outside of Berlin and were taking advantage of Uwe speaking at the writer’s workshop to visit the famous German zoo. Growing up in a small town, the girls were full of the innocence and joy that comes from uninhibited country living.

There was a large open area outside of the conference rooms where the girls played tag and leap frog with us and each other. Five year old Shanti perfected the art of shouting out “pause” whenever she was about to be tagged.  She avoided ever being caught. The girls were such fast and clever runners that Gayle and I, dressed in our formal business clothes, never had a real chance of catching them anyway. They seemed always one step ahead. It was joyful seeing them run and jump and laugh and keep us on our toes.  Their ability to strategize among themselves in German and then shout out to us with playful challenges and taunts in English was uniquely intriguing. I doubt I ever enjoyed losing games of tag as much as I did with these bright and lively young girls. (more…)

Put the Caring Back into Health Care: Medicine in America

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

Last week I blogged about Dr. and Master Sha and his Soul Healing Miracles. It got me thinking about medicine in 2123984831_b421632b55America. In a nutshell, our system is a mess.

At the same time that American medicine is rightfully viewed as the  top medical system in the world in terms of technology, research, and innovation with the best trained doctors in the world, American medicine is also the most expensive, the least personal, and perhaps the most corrupt system in the world as well.  The corruption starts with Medicare and the temptation that large hospitals and medical groups have to encourage unnecessary medical tests and operations purely for financial gain. The corruption extends to drug companies, insurance companies and other components of both private and government health care providers and regulators whose goals and motives are profit and power and not the care of human beings.

Are You Wise?

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Innerwise is.  This weekend was the first major workshop to demonstrate the techniques of innerwise Energy Balancing innercont01-flux-04as developed by German medical doctor Uwe Albrecht. About thirty people attended the workshop and ten people were motivated to sign up to become mentors and perfect their use of the system. Even those who attended for only part of the workshop were given the basic instruction necessary to use the system for their own diagnosis and treatment of a variety of health and relationship issues.

One of the beauties of innerwise and the structure that Dr. Albrecht has created is that the system itself can be used by anyone, either directly or with their existing clients. Innerwise,as a company, requires extensive training before  certifying  mentors, but  anyone who is drawn to use the system can start using it immediately. The other rare and wonderful quality of the system is that though developed specifically to deal with health issues, the system can work in a number of fields ranging from business consulting to architecture to education.

HEALTH: A QUESTION OF BALANCE

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Good health is perhaps the single most important component for a happy life. With the cost of health insurance Vitacontinuing to rise and the uncertainty of the effectiveness or fairness of the Obamacare legislation, Americans are more concerned with health issues than ever before. The costs for hospital stays are astronomical and ninety percent of all health dollars are spent on medical interventions which prolong at most the last six months of life of those who receive primary hospitalization for life-threatening illnesses.

Something has gone wrong, seriously wrong with health care in America.  All Americans and all human beings should have access to basic medical care and treatment. The majority of medical care, if provided at early stages of diseases, can be cost effective and focus on preventative rather than late-stage emergency measures. Part of the problem is that our health care system functions as a profit focused business. This is true for all components of the system from individual doctors to the drug companies to hospital management companies and insurance companies. As a profit-focused business, certain health practices are encouraged whether or not they are the best ways of dealing with patients. A recent Sixty Minutes television program revealed that in many hospitals emergency room doctors were given quotas of the percentage of patients who, regardless of actual need, had to be admitted to the hospital to keep the hospital at maximum profitability. This is wrong on so many levels and ultimately unnecessary, but given our present economic system, perhaps impossible to stop or even control. (more…)
