I think we all can agree that the world is in a huge transition, there is almost no place that has not been touched this year by disease, war, political and governmental malfeasance, natural disaster. Rage seems a natural reaction to almost anything, people are afraid,...

Some years ago, my mother did dog sitting in her home, which she enjoyed very much. She had one client that was a regular, and they had interesting conversations. One day, the subject of spirituality and peaceful resistance came up, and my mother made a reference to Ma...
