    Hope, Service & Responsibility: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    You are listening to Happiness Index and we continue to deepen our conversation on Happiness. We will be sharing our views on hope, service and responsibility as a path to happiness.  We will explore views expressed by Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Rebubic on hope.  Vaclav Havel said,  Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism.  It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.  A Course in Miracles reminds us that happiness is our choice and that the only thing we need do for vision, happiness and release from pain of any kind is to say these word and mean them with no reservations.   I am responsible for what I see.  I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide on the goal I would achieve. and that everything that seems to happen, I ask for and receive as I have asked. Our conversation  today will be on hope, service & responsibility as a path to happiness.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and be the change you want to see in the world, call (347) 539-5818.

    Fiscal responsibility minus the responsibility equals disaster!

    in Politics Conservative

    Live at 8AM-10AM EST Monday-Friday 


    Name me one politico who has ever stated, "I do not believe in fiscal responsibility." If there has been anyone who has openly made that statement  we have found the first honest politician (well, at least when it comes to fiscal matters).  


    Part of every campaign are pronouncements of being a "fiscal conservative".  My first question for all politicos is "What does fiscal responsibility mean?" or "How when you bring fiscal responsibilty to the State of South Carolina or the Federal Budget?" Instant stammering and I will study comments are regurgitated.


    South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis, Jr. will be joining us as we gather "In the Pickle Barrel" to discuss fiscal responsibility in light of the various proposals being brought before the SC Legislature. In addition, we will attempt to attach a real definition to the term "Fiscal Responsibility".


    You can join in the conversation live by calling in at 855-236-2486 or create your own conversation in the online ChatRoom.

    Responsibility: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    We continue to focus on the role we play each moment each day to effect and ignite happiness. “A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; a man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his thoughts, yet surely, shape his circumstances.”James Allen, author of As a Man Thinketh, said.  This wisdom is congruent to the wisdom of the ages. “Change your mind change your LIFE.” said Dr. Gerald Jampolsky.”  If we want inner peace and happiness, we must make the necessary efforts to make the change by thinking harmonious, peaceful and happy thoughts every moment. Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index”.  We would love to hear your wisdom on this very important subject, please call (347) 539-5818.

    #3 - Responsibility: Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    We continue to focus on the role we play each moment each day to effect and ignite happiness. “A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer, of the man with his surroundings.” James Allen, author of As a Man Thinketh, said.  This wisdom is congruent to the wisdom of the ages. “We ourselves must walk the path.” Buddha said. We must take the necessary efforts to make the change.  What steps, must one take that could lead to one’s inner joy and happiness?

    Responsibility and Accountability

    in Spirituality

    When we communicate with one another why do we take the information that was shared with us as bad or sad or happy or glad or all those words that we can use? When I am working with someone I can tell just by how they are sharing their life stories with me if they are taking the responsibility and accountability that comes with being in charge of their lives.


    Today we will talk about the relationship between REAL change and your willingness to own your choices

    Dixon D. White on "White Racial Responsibility" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."  

    Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.

    What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"

    That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.

    Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.

    I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.

    This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.

    Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...
