We have defined ourselves as somehow “enlightened” but how can we be enlightened and write deep research articles like this one and leave out the soul? The soul is our connection to Godly behavior. Our souls guide us to selfless service toward others.
The article, “Self-Transcendent Emotions and Their Social Functions: Compassion, Gratitude, and Awe Bind Us to Others Through Prosociality” has about one hundred citations for research on humanity. But, it is all on emotion.
I find it satisfying that the “conclusion” in the research paper points to what religion has taught for thousands of years. It is cool to see science catch up to religion. Continue reading “What’s Old Is New”
Work makes us work together. It’s in this that we can show our humanity to each other, or not. Have you been at work and seen behavior that steals another person’s dignity? Think of it this way, have you seen a coworker bullied, put-upon, made to work to excess? Or, is your workplace a place where humanity thrives and the business does as well?
What makes one place of business one way, or another?
Economics of people working together, HR, employee benefits, and faith are what I write about, someone passed along this informal classroom pole. 40% of Students admitted they have witnessed broken workplaces.
Workplaces are human places first. People do stuff, solve problems and make things together. It’s all done to promote family and community, that’s what work does.
For 98% of us our work is not intrinsically meaningful. Like the work of a Cancer doctor whose work is by its nature intrinsically meaningful, most of us must bring meaning to our work.

Giving up the worlds hold on us makes it possible to see a reality seldom recognized in the daily grind. Trading the world’s promise of fame, fortune, power, honor, privilege for God’s promises means recognizing the workplace as a human place.
It means, doing things like Katherine Drexel did, it is to move your heart from doing for yourself, do doing for others. Katherine Drexel gave up Millions and look what her choice created, a link to her story of starting Xavier University and so many other good works.
What is your place of work like? What do you bring to your workplace? Comment or share your own view.
It seems to me, the Americans suspended their worry about Healthcare premium hoping Trump and his experts will fix it. They won’t. The experts, right or left, can’t solve Healthcare because they refuse to examine their own practices. Experts always point to others to change instead of themselves. Sound harsh? Maybe it is, Continue reading “Healthcare, Trumpcare Won’t Lower Your Premium”
Faith is an overlooked quality today. Faith feeds the soul which we’ve forgotten about in our busy day. Intellect, physical pleasures and leisure fill our hearts and minds. But, you deserve better, your soul longs for answers and peace but you must water the mustard seed, you must tend to your soul to find that inner peace.
Taking time to be at peace with yourself, your marriage, family, work, and communities is a daily exercise worth the investment of time. This is much better than pills, drugs, or worldly distractions from the truth of life. No more anger, frustration, bullying, just peace and joy. Heaven on earth. Think it’s impossible? Just spend a few minutes now with God. It’s easy. Continue reading “Words 1,568 Years Old, Are Relevant for You Today”
