Principles Rise Simultaneously – Uncovering the Mystery

August 1, 2018

Mythology Opens Door to Guiding Principles When I left the Bible Church I took some college classes on sociology and religion and I stumbled into mythology. In 1988 a PBS series featuring Joseph Campbell airs on TV and I became one of his fans almost instantly. The Series was called “The Power of Myth” there […]

Wealthy Attacked Counter Productive to Healthy Society

July 27, 2018

Attacks on Wealthy The constant attacks on the wealthy are neither just nor logical and they are certainly not helpful. In a healthy society there will be wealthy people at one extreme and poor at the other. In the middle will be the majority ranging from “upper” middle class to “lower” middle class.  I would like […]

Socialism defeats Golden Rule: Avoiding the Lie!

July 11, 2018

Excitement about Socialism There’s a lot of excitement among our younger generations about socialism. As a baby boomer it is hard for me to understand why. Besides the fact that Socialism has never worked in any significant way. Clearly, recent examples show that it literally destroys economic systems everywhere it’s tried. How does the Golden […]

Mystery of the Axial Age: Finding Guiding Hand?

July 4, 2018

Axial Age? In my life I realized that there should be a way for us to have proof of a Supreme if there were one. There are too many things that take place in our experience that we not have some kind of evidence to rest our curiosity upon calming the spirits. This thought process […]

Banish Fear and Optimize Your Performance

April 23, 2018

Banish Fear Banish fear a slogan used by quality control guru W. Edwards Deming.

I have a nice Ranger School story that describes that condition […]

Are you creating your own determined future, or are you chasing the red laser dot and find yourself totally distracted? This is an excerpt from The Simple Little Rule: The Golden Rule Rediscovered.  Responsibility It seems no one speaks of responsibility anymore.

Have we lost a sense of our morals?

February 23, 2018

Lost Sense of Morals Have we entered a tract to a sense of lost morals? Have we reached a period in our culture where the majority (trying to be nice I suppose) have allowed a minority to dictate how they will practice a religion and when. It seems like we can’t talk about God, so […]

Standards of Reasoning: A Way to Check Justice

August 17, 2017

Standards of Reasoning: Powering Justice I realized that I haven’t really covered a phrase I use frequently within my writing and speaking. The Standards of Reasoning grew out of my research for the Supporting Principle Justice. As I was putting the Supporting Principles together I went through forty or fifty virtues in my attempt to understand […]

Golden Rule as God’s Mission Statement

August 2, 2017

What’s a Mission Statement? I frequently speak about the Golden Rule as God’s Mission Statement. Why? Well, primarily, humans function as a super-organism. We are ill prepared to function for any extended period of time on our own. Our survival depends on relationships. We have, as a species, been learning to succeed in ever larger […]
