  • Free Therapy # 48: How to Become Spiritually Enlightened

    “Be big.” Elizabeth Kelly* Let me be clear. I am absolutely not spiritually enlightened. Not even close. I am more like an usher in a theatre where enlightenment happens for the actors on the stage. I get to watch the show and usher others to see the light. Someday each of us we will have [...]

    Practice a little moderation now and then to increase the pleasure of the blow-outs. - advice given to writer Adair Lara by her father Since August: It took 45 minutes for Olive Garden to sell out of their promotional $100 for 49 days of The Never Ending Pasta Bowl.

    Letter to the Editor: Proposition 47 Adds to Crime Problems

    Proposition 47 attempts to deceive voters.  The proponents of Proposition 47 conjured up the name “Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act” for a collection of bad ideas that will produce the opposite of what that title portends.

    Matt’s Chats with Christine Cantera

    Over the years I’ve built a number of friendships entirely on the Internet.  Either by luck or coincidence, I’ve stumbled across some fascinating, funny, talented, amazing people and while the relationships are virtual, the friendships aren’t.  It’s really cool to get to know someone on the other side of the world without ever so much as [...]

    Free Therapy # 47: See What is Real

    “I know love is all I need. That’s all I know.” Randy Crowell I’ve had a few experiences in my life that I would describe as “spiritual.” That word – spiritual – is special to me. When I connect with it, not just “think” about it; I experience it. I am it and it is [...]

    Wednesday’s Word: ‘Compassion’

    While driving through downtown Redding yesterday I saw a young scrawny guy on a bike carrying a shoe box under one arm as he zipped through traffic.
