Hello, friends. It has been a while! Long time, no blog, so to speak. I am bursting with data, analysis, news, and I can’t keep it from you any longer. We have a lot to talk about in this world: plague, war, famine, abortion, borders, elections, education, the decline of the West, and so on.
I am going share my graphics and links with you over the coming weeks, but no longer every day. I made a promise to someone here to focus on home and work. Let me say briefly that this blog is seen by many people other than regular commenters, including a household member – so nothing disrespectful should be said about them – ahem – a word to the wise…!
We have spent the last three months focusing heavily on health and wellness, and learning that this is a multi-dimensional goal. In my studies, I have found that the (Asian) Indian model of the self is the most complete, refining the traditional triad of body-heart-mind. In Indian teachings, there are seven levels, each important for total health: survival, relational, appetitive, emotional, expressive, mental, and spiritual. Neglect any of these at your peril.
I have substantially expanded the links section at the bottom of the blog. Please explore these resources. There are new resources on relationships, new resources on the many powerful links between mental health and physical health, and a whole new section with resources on Jewish spirituality, that I hope will be nourishing for adherents of all the Abrahamic faiths.
I had intended to feed you links to some 600 or so browser tabs I opened in the last few months, but you won’t be surprised to hear that my poor browser couldn’t handle the strain, and crashed a few weeks ago. I am improving my well-being in part by slashing the number of must-read websites I study daily; and we turned off our television and talk radio a long time ago. Nevertheless, our friend Nitzakhon is being very productive; I subscribe to his writings at two websites, and I encourage you to do the same:
I look forward to talking with you soon!
