Obama and “I’m Just Like You” Politics (by Deepak Chopra)

posted by dchopra

In recent weeks Barack Obama has been faulted for, among other things, misunderstanding working-class gun owners and church goers, bowling a 37, wanting a Philly cheese steak with goat cheese instead of Cheez Whiz, and associating with a former Sixties radical who is now a professor of English. These accusations, aimed at him by the Clinton campaign and various Republican sources, amount to a single insinuation: Obama has failed to pass the “I’m just like you” test. Previous politicians who have similarly failed: John Kerry for windsurfing, Michael Dukakis for posing in an Army tank, Al Gore for “throwing like a girl” when he played touch football in a campaign ad, and John Edwards for getting a haircut that allegedly cost $400.

21 Ways To Celebrate Life (by Mallika Chopra)

posted by Mallika Chopra

Dear friends, I wanted to share this beautiful tribute that my friend, Nancy Rothstein, sent to me to commemorate the 21st birthday of her son, Josh, who was tragically killed when he was 15. His 21st birthday would have been tomorrow, April 16th. Nancy writes to me:

After Josh was killed, I was seeking a way to offer a tribute for family and friends to honor his birthday. Out of such profound loss and sadness, I wanted to create something that would give people inspiration and help them find joy in the gift of life….while it is still theirs.

Papal Visit (by Gotham Chopra)

posted by Gotham Chopra

I’ve asked a few of my Catholic friends this week how pumped they are for the arrival of Pope Benedict the XVI, and I am not gonna lie to you – the response has been far from overwhelming. That said, the Pope’s arrival on our shores will reveal a lot depending on what he’s here to say. To that end, there’s interest amongst Catholics and Philistines alike as to what exactly the Pope is coming to say . Will he stick to the vague “Christ our hope” messaging or will he venture out to talk about the good stuff – Gays getting hitched, abortion, where God stands on this crazy Iraq War, and why Catholic Priests disproportionally sexually mess with young boys…?

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #2 Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen? (Part 2)
    One of the biggest stumbling blocks for people who want to believe in God is the existence of bad things in our lives.  The evening news carries enough stories about war, crime, famine, oppression, and much else that a loving God wouldn't permit. But as we saw in the first post,

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #2 Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?
In every spiritual tradition, different as they are, God is taken to be the moral compass for human beings. He may or may not be a punisher.  He may or may not sit in judgment, watching and weighing our every move. He may or may not be a He, since the God of Judaism, for example, is without form. B

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #1 Is Karma Fair? (Part 2)
Even at a time when religion is declining in the West, most people remember the Biblical saying "As you sow, so shall you reap." they cling to a belief taught in childhood, that good is rewarded and evil punished. In the first post we started to look at the possibility that what was learned in child

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #1 Is Karma Fair?
We live in an especially dispirited time when people say, totally without irony, "Life is unfair" and "No good deed goes unpunished."  Is there proof that life is, in fact, fair or unfair?  The question doesn't even make sense if you believe that the universe is cold, random and devoid of meaning.
