Ever seen the film, Horrible Bosses, the dark-humored film about three employees who plot together to plan the demise of their abusive and overbearing bosses?
While the film is a farfetched depiction, some would say that the angst of the characters who are the employees is an unfortunate part of life in the working world. But should that have to be the case? Is it possible for a leader, whether they be an employer, teacher, pastor, or even the head of household to be respected without stooping to base tactics?
Yes! It is possible to lead others with a heart of compassion and still get great results. If you're a leader, this is a half-hour that you want to take time for.

The island of Crete was the location of one of the first major cultures that grew to significance about 4000 years ago. We know that culture as the Minoans. Along with giving us the day off, Minoa may also be able to give Freemasons answers to the nature and future of the culture of freemasonry and how it will evolve.
In exchange for giving us metals and materials, the earth extracts a price. We call it pollution.
The world of freemasonry is different today than it was in the beginning. We often can't determine specific points in time but we have context that gives us reliable guesses. Our history was less 'Big Bang' and more molecular. What we know today as the practice of freemasonry came about gradually over time, influenced by social change, invention, history and evolution of science and ideas but always changing. Freemasonry did not absorb every idea, nor reduce every question into useful information. Some of us realize to inject the Craft with a sense that what has been gained, we must realize it is still growing, influenced by the flotsam and jettsom hitting the shores of freemasonry. Yet despite that there are freemasons convinced shrinking membership is a sign of risk.
There are some who even trifle out of a belief freemasonry is the Constitution. I always thought Freemasonry is a bundle of ideas with a dilettante soul. That part doesn't need protection but we apprentices do. We need organization. We need the validation of constituion. We need exposure to scholarship.
So is freemasonry elemental or not? If we could advertise intelligence we could give away freemasonry gratis. Me? I know freemasonry is about ability, effort and maturity.

Some days all we want is a little sympathy or maybe even a lot of sympathy, but is that what we really need? Today we'll talk about the difference between sympathy and compassion and why one might be better than the other. Join us live or listen to the archive and the next time you or someone you know is suffering, you might just have a better approach to help them.
Looking for happiness and personal peace outside of oneself can be so frustrating and ultimately disappointing. My desire for this show is to share the information and tools I have learned about forgiveness and compassion in hopes that my research and quest these last few years can help those of you who are struggling and who would like to be living a more peaceful, meaningful, and enjoyable life. My hope is that these tools will help you find your peace, and the happiness available within your own being, even in the face of life's challenges-or should I say especially in the face of life’s challenges. I believe that there are 4 steps to personal peace: Self-Acceptance,Clearing Your Past, Forgiveness and Compassion and Raising Your Vibrations.This show is part 1 of forgiveness and compassion.But before we get into the show lets see if you earned your seat. If you think self acceptance is not an issue for you-do this simple exercise. What happens if you close your eyes and say: “I forgive myself” and really think about the words. Say it a few times. See what comes up when you say: “I forgive myself myself, but…” Can you discover what the “but” is? What thoughts came up? What would happen if you really, really forgave yourself – right now? Repeat the exercise with: “I forgive (fill in the blank)” Lack of forgiveness, holding on to anger, resentment, guilt , shame often cripples us and leaves us without any hope of inner peace. How is it possible to forgive the unforgiveable-How do you forgive yourself? At the very end we include a 5 minute clip of Om Mani Padhe Hum my favorite forgiveness and compassion chant and meditation. Call TransformativeLifeSolutions today at 888.848.7406.

"With self-compassion the most important step is to notice your own suffering." - Dr. Kristin Neff
Dr. Kristin Neff joins Sister Jenna to discuss the power of self-compassion.
Kristin Neff, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. During her last year of graduate school, she became interested in Buddhism, and has been practicing meditation in the Insight Meditation tradition ever since. While doing her post-doctoral work she conducted research on self-compassion – a central construct in Buddhist psychology and one that had not yet been examined empirically.
In addition to her pioneering research into self-compassion, Kristen has developed an 8-week program to teach self-compassion skills. The program, co-created with her colleague Chris Germer at Harvard University, is called Mindful Self-Compassion. She is the author of a book titled, "Self-Compassion" and has produced a 6-CD Audio Set on "Self-Compassion Step by Step."
Kristen and her family were also featured in the best-selling book and award-winning documentary called "The Horse Boy." Visit her website at www.self-compassion.org

It is a story of how children can be branded as witch and how they are abused in the name of sacred religion. The oil pollution in the Niger Delta plays significant role in impacting the whole story. You will understand what I mean when you listen to the story.
