Why

It’s better to smile than to get angry

Recently, I had my bi-annual dental (hygienist) appointment. At my arrival, I received a checklist with some 30 health questions and was asked to complete it and sign off.

The human cycle of Change

The Universe has a simple cycle of Change: action, reaction. Essentially, this is also Isaac Newton's third Law of Motion: for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction (eg, NASA, Wiki). The human cycle of Change has an additional element: acceptance. The default human cycle of Change follows nature's default: deeds (ie, actions),...
