5 Stars: "Teaching What We Need to Learn"
Leaders in Personal Growth & Spirituality Share Their Own Innermost Challenges I'm always watching out for examples of Speaking Truthfully principles, for people I can point to and say, "Watch, listen, feel.

I've been listening to a truly remarkable audio program called Teaching What We Need To Learn, hosted by Raphael Cushnir, who happens to be an old friend, one I respect and admire. ... Read more

How Privileged Are You?
I often take my privilages for granted; in doing so, the filters through which I see the world are skewed. I don't see as clearly as I might. And then I don't see those people with less, or no, privileges as clearly as I might. My empathy shrivels. I risk not seeing what I should see; not doing what I should do. I turn on the faucet, I get purified water. I flip a switch, I get light. My food is kept cold in my refrigerator. When I want more, I drive to the store. Maybe I get gas on the way. ... Read more

Piercing the Fear of Self-Revelation
Speaking Truthfully has many facets. The one I want to talk about now is the aspect of Speaking Truthfully I have termed "self-revelation. It is what I point to when I use words like transparency, intimacy, vulnerability, honesty. Rather than try to define "self-revelation," I'll tell you a story, which I've never before written about. You will take from this story what you want, and I'll be happy with that. It's where I first came face-to-face with the fear of self-revelation, and what I did... Read more
Global Nuclear Arsenal
Iran, World Powers Reach Nuclear Deal On July 14, 2015, a nuclear agreement was reached between Iran and the U.S., U.K., Russia, China, Germany and France. While this accord is seen by many as good news and seen by some as tragic news, it stirred me to review the current state of the global nuclear arsenal. After all, when I try to imagine Donald Trump with his finger on the button, well, I don't think "duck and cover" will do us any good. Here's a brief summary, with additional info... Read more
