I am an interFaith activist. This means that I help to build bridges between different religious communities. We often utilise this term of, “building bridges,” in a figurative manner, however, I consider the actual process of building a bridge. I am other than an engineer, by training, so I am without a formal knowledge of the history and tradition of bridges. In the contemporary context of…Continue

I support and believe in the Palestinians—their right to inhabit the land they live on and have lived on for many, many years, and I support their plight. Does this make me Anti-Semitic?
After Israel attacked Gaza in December of 2008, I had a deep need to go over to the Middle East and learn first hand about the situation. I could have read more books on the conflict, but I believe experiential education is the most informative way to the truth. So, in March of 2009, I traveled…Continue

When we pass over, our conscience (as well as our consciousness too) becomes totally clear/cleansed into the Heavenly Realms. We recall our life and everything else as it "really" Is, right to the start of it all, this time (cycle), and we will deeply realize/empathize that it is not just about "me", but everyone "equally". We will come to be aware that our personal journey is not just ours alone, but of us all. We…Continue

Out of the four main paths to God (natural, knowledge, action, devotion), I really do love the path of devotion. Devotion places full faith and complete trust – first and foremost – in The Lord and His Providence to overlook and to take care of us all equally. It is simple, clear, straight-forward, unambiguous and unpretentious. As much as my early spiritual life was initiated by the path of knowledge (the conscious path), devotion now plays a very deep and reverent part in my life just as…Continue

Over three years ago, when I walked into Hamilton-Smith Hall, Rm 101 for the first time, I was already sweating through my shirt. Sure, I was accepted into the same Master of Fine Arts in creative writing as the rest of the room, but clearly they were the genuine ones and I was just a clerical error.
During a growing discussion about writing, I felt ideas percolate in my brain, but I squashed each one with the notion that I didn’t belong. However, it seemed that every time someone…Continue

When I was in middle school, I played for a City youth football team in Sioux Falls, SD. Our team wasn’t very good and many of the other guys quit before the end of the year. Since half of the team was in 7th grade and the other half was in 6th grade, those of us who were older ended up playing on the line since we were naturally bigger. I was a 7th grader, thus relegated to the line. I decided to play football because I loved to catch passes in the…Continue
