Giving Peace a Chance: On the Evolution of Violence

An old saying from the tai-chi classics runs, Winning by fighting is the worst way; winning without fighting is better; winning hearts is best. We are currently living in the most peaceful, non-violent times in all of human history and almost nobody knows about it. Suffering from historical amnesia and media-driven myopia, most people today are certain that the world is going to hell in a hand-basket and that idea is utterly false. Every measurable indicator of violence has declined dramatically in the last few centuries and these declines have accelerated in the last fifty years.

Can Stress Make You Stronger?

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!

Instead of trying to avoid stress in our lives, perhaps we should embrace it. We need to gain a sense of mastery over life and the stresses that go with being alive. We all must choose at some point to become the hero of our own life story or the victim. To embrace the stress in our lives and become the warrior instead of the worrier. Recent research is showing that believing that stress is harmful to your health may actually be harmful to your health. and that the old adage that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” might actually be true.
