• Fearing our own maturity

    Our bodies and our souls each have their separate aging process, and they aren't always in harmony. Thus, T.E. Laurence, in “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom,” makes this comment about someone:

  • Ten secrets to happiness

    The past five years have seen a growth in interest in studies on human happiness. Numerous books have been published on the topic, not least Sonja Lyubomirsky's “The Myths of Happiness,” which has become for many a secular bible for happiness and meaning.

  • Walking on water and sinking like a stone

    Faith isn't something you ever simply achieve. It's not something that you ever nail down as a fait accompli.

  • The Law of Karma

    In 1991 Hollywood produced a comedy entitled “City Slickers,” starring Billy Crystal. In a quirky way it was a wonderfully moral film, focusing on three, middle-aged men from New York City who were dealing with midlife crisis.

  • Searching for the right fuel

    Sometimes everything can seem right on the surface while, deep down, nothing is right at all.

  • Suicide: Reclaiming the memory of our loved one

    Each year I write a column on suicide. Mostly I say the same thing over and over again, simply because it needs to be said. I don’t claim any originality or special insight, I only write about suicide because there is such a desperate need for anyone to address the question.

  • Robert Moore on human energy

    Few thinkers have influenced me as profoundly as Robert L. Moore, a scholar who has spent almost 50 years studying human energy from the perspective of psychology, anthropology and spirituality.

  • On being perpetually distracted

    There's a story in the Hindu tradition that runs something like this:

  • On not being stingy with God's mercy

    Today, for a number of reasons, we struggle to be generous and prodigal with God's mercy.

  • The regrets we can live with

    In her recent book, “The Invention of Wings,” Sue Monk Kidd presents us with a deeply conflicted heroine, Sarah, a highly-sensitive woman who grows up the daughter of a slave-owner and a child of privilege. But Sarah's moral sensitivity soon trumps her sense of privilege and she makes a series of hard choices to distance herself from both slavery and privilege.

Three kinds of spiritualities

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

All of us struggle, and we struggle in three ways. First, sometimes we struggle simply to maintain ourselves, to stay healthy and stable, to stay normal, to not fall apart, to not have our lives unravel into chaos and depression.
