In all mystical traditions, a tremendous amount of respect is given to the spoken and written word. What you say could be the difference between abundance and poverty. What you say can be the difference between health and illness. Words are powerful.
This is a summary of Dan Ariely's Payoff and not the original book. Not many people will tell you that they are motivated by their jobs. In fact, we would wager that most people would say they are not motivated by their jobs at all and that if they didn't need the money, they wouldn't be at their current jobs. In other words, they are not motivated. Dan Ariely, in his book Payoff, discusses what really motivates people, and surprisingly, it is not money. What motivates is an underlying sense of meaning.
The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from the misery of lower - and middle - class Americans who can't pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren't talking.
With breakthroughs in modern technology, we have been able to successfully curtail many of these diseases. However, that does not mean we are immune from future outbreaks. For example, HIV may not be the bubonic plague, but it has devastated millions of lives and continues to do so despite the new drugs that control it. We recently had an outbreak of Ebola in Africa that managed to hitch a ride back to the United States and other western countries. It doesn't take that much for a pandemic to take root.

The virgin Mary has always been a fascinating spiritual power to me. I have always resonated with the sacred feminine in her various forms, so it was easy for me to connect to the great mother Mary.

Hundreds of millions of people pray to her for assistance, and it has been shown that she does answer.
"Too wonderful to relate"
In this wired world in which distraction is everywhere, it is harder for us to simply focus on one task. Don't you agree? We go from one task to another and often times we do not even finish the original task. We get so bogged down by distraction, not only do we not finish the initial task, we may even forget about it altogether. In Deep Work, Cal Newport explains the determinants of being in such a distracted world and how we can navigate it so we can achieve greater productivity and deeper work.
Few events in history put the effects of the institutionalized segregation and racism of Jim Crow on display like the case of the Scottsboro Boys, a group of black teenagers accused of raping two young white girls on a train. When the girls made the accusation, the teens were nearly lynched by an angry mob, only to be dragged almost immediately into court and given a sham trial that inevitably ended in a conviction by an all-white jury and death sentences for eight of the nine boys. The case was appealed by outsiders on behalf of the boys....

In this summary of the China Study, we will find out just how beneficial a plant-based diet is and why we don't need to fear carbs as much as we need to fear meat.

Given how bad some of Rome's emperors were, it's a testament to just how insane and reviled Caligula was that he is still remembered, nearly 2,000 years later, as the epitome of everything that could be wrong with a tyrant. The Romans had high hopes for him after he succeeded Tiberius in AD 37, and by all accounts he was a noble and just ruler during his first few months in power. But after that, he suffered a mysterious illness that apparently rendered him insane. Indeed, the list of Caligula's strange actions is long.
There is no doubt about it, 9/11/2001 changed the world. We learned that terrorists in the name of Islam were able to attack the United States. The response to the attack by the United States and its allies was swift and brutal. As the United States made inroads against groups like Al Qaeda, it was expecting that terrorism would decrease. That is not what happened. It actually got worse.
Among the New Age Movement and modern spiritualists, one name stands above the rest: Helena Petrovna (H.P.) Blavatsky. Blavatsky is best known today for co-founding the Theosophical School, a religious school of thought that she labeled "the archaic Wisdom-Religion, the esoteric doctrine once known in every ancient country having claims to civilization", and nobody was more qualified than Blavatsky to forge such a creation.
