SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
People are highly motivated by the thought that they might lose out on something. When humans don't have enough of something, that fact dominates our consciousness….or the perceived lack of something.
Greed shows up when there’s an assumption of lack…or scarcity. Eldar Shafir writes, “it appears that poverty (or poverty of mind) itself reduces cognitive capacity. We suggest that this is because poverty-related concerns consume mental resources, leaving less for other tasks. Shafir calls this problem bandwidth poverty. When you're bandwidth poor, you're thinking about how to pay for food and make rent today — and it's almost impossible to think about the future.”
Michael Neill - The scarcer the resource, the more we are willing to give up in order to get it; the more common the resource, the less we are willing to give up in order to get it.
The FEAR of not having enough is a critical form of leverage to settle for less than God’s best.
Maggie Haydock shares a familiar story with a twist:
Once upon a time there were three little pigs. When they turned 18, the little pigs left home to seek their fortune.
Their first priority was finding shelter. The first pig built a house out of straw that he found scattered on the ground. The second pig built a house out of sticks that he scavenged from the woods....

Segment 1 of today's show will consider whether, consistent with the First Amendment and Virginia v. Black, conviction of threatening another person under 18 U.S.C. § 875(c) requires proof of the defendant's subjective intent to threaten, as required by the Ninth Circuit and the supreme courts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont; or whether it is enough to show that a “reasonable person” would regard the statement as threatening, as held by other federal courts of appeals and state courts of last resort; and (2) whether, as a matter of statutory interpretation, conviction of threatening another person under 18 U.S.C. § 875(c) requires proof of the defendant's subjective intent to threaten.
Segment 2 of today's show will look at the preliminary declaration of a state of emergency declared in Ferguson, Missouri at the wait of the grand jury's indictment. For several months peaceful protestors have had their First Amendment right trampled over due to the harsh criticism of local, state and federal government.
Segment 3 of today's show will focus on the intersection of the First Amendment
freedom of speech rights and the government’s ability to regulate, and in some situations ban
lawyer advertising. Restrictions are typically enforced through the individual state agencies,
commonly referred to as the State Bar.
Segment 4 of today's show will determine if some tactics protected under the First Amendment are acts of voter intimidation or exercise of free speech.
WARNING!!! This content will be touch on the current Obama immigration concept and Isreal. CONTROVERSIAL CONTENT!
As a Jamaican born, nationalized citizen of the USA, I had to learn some key historic moments in order to sit and pass my citizenship test. I am thankful to be here - and yes, I came here legally.
The desire for religious freedom was integral to the flood of people who came to this land, and while hoards of immigrants still come here, and want to come here, religious freedom is no longer the goal. There is a cycle I have observed and want to share.
Faith to move into the unknown often brings incredible blessing. Blessings lead to abundance. Abundance often leads to greed. Greed leads to jealousy and a disregard for others, which leads to the a love of self over others. The self-serving spirit leads to apathy, and an increase in crime. Apathy and an increase in crime leads to abject poverty. Abject poverty leads to seeking freedom and opportunity elsewhere. Seeking freedom and opportunity elsewhere leads to immigration to other places. The cycle of immigration, assimilation, population expansion, and redistribution continues.
Maybe if this season we remember why this nation got great. Focus on being thankful for what we have; give generously to those we love, and those who need some love, and be in a spirit of thanks-giving, this Thanksgiving - we might bring more joy into our lives and the lives of others as we shift focus from the negative to the positive things about this season, and the reason we celebrate it
We have all faced it in some form, at some time in our lives, and we have the wounds to prove it. Few experiences are more profoundly impacting thant the pain of rejection. Some spend lifetimes trying to find the love they never felt as a child. Some spend their lives in love with wealth after being rejected in childhood because of poverty. The arm of rejection is long reaching, and its blow creates a stinging pain in our spirits unlike any other.
This show is about how to handle rejection when it comes knocking at your door.
Also: on this episode I share a vision given to my good friend Ardith, which I feel is from the Lord. We are not completely sure what He is trying to tell us in it - if you think you know, please post a comment to this show!
The Thursday Ushet at Sunset is a reflection of the Myth of Ra and Aset when Ra says, "I am Khepera in the morning, and Ra at noonday, and Temu in the evening." Thus this evening worship program will pay homage to the Supreme Being in the form of Ra-Tem or Temu the setting sun. Hotep

Did you know... North American governments
Spend over 51 BILLION dollars a year on the War on Drugs?
Yet these same governments do very little to treat addiction and the "poverty of the spirit" that engenders this addiction.
Dr. Bruce K. Alexander is a Canadian psychologist who believes that society is drowning in addictions, to alchohol, drug use and a thousand other habits. He maintains the reason for this is a growing disconnect as people around are torn from the close ties to family, culture, and traditional spirituality. Alexendar says this rift and lack of social integration has destroyed what used to constitute the normal fabric of societal life.
For many, addiction serves as a substitute for the connectedness for which they long and which provides context and meaning for their lives.
Alexander believes because societal determinants are so much more powerful that individual ones, that addiction is much more a social problem than an individual disorder. This is why he feels that the War on Drugs is so wrong-headed.
Alexander's book, The Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of the Spirit presents a new look at the nature of addiction, how society should view addicts, and more effective treatments for addiction.
Bruce Alexander is a psychologist and Professor Emeritus at Simon Fraser University, where he has worked since 1970. His primary research interest has been the psychology of addiction. He is best known in the UK for the "Rat Park" experiments, which helped to demonstrate the falsity of the outworn belief that simple exposure to narcotic drugs can cause addiction.
