inding Stability and Strength in Vulnerability, by Michael MamasThe Huffington Post

“Finding Stability and Strength in Vulnerability”
When feeling hurt (offended, contradicted, diminished, fearful, or otherwise imposed upon), a common tendency is to respond and defend with anger (or perhaps hysteria, rage, withdrawal, or collapse).

Healing the Schism between Religion and Science, by Michael MamasMedium.com

“Healing the Schism between Religion and Science”
For better or worse, it’s an epidemic: people are turning their backs on religion. Religious leaders are at a loss as to what to do about it. They may try to water down their teachings to make them more palatable, compromise their moral positions, or introduce non-traditional music into the church. One thing is for sure: they just don’t get what the problem is. It seems they are unable to respond to the underlying reason people are walking away. The fundamental problem is that religion, as it is understood today, is incompatible with the analytical and rational mentality that has become dominant in these modern times. It just does not make sense…

“The World Is 99.9% Perspective… but That 0.1% Is Key”
99.9% of this world we live in is perspective. It’s just opinion. It’s a viewpoint to which people cling to as valid. We base our lives upon these perspectives. They define our science, our religion, and our moral values. Yet, as Socrates said, “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” Reality is not concrete. It is paradoxical, undefinable, and ungraspable…

Conflict Resolution: When Letting Go Is Key, by Michael MamasLinkedIn

“Conflict Resolution: When Letting Go Is Key”
Inevitably, in business and in our personal life, we will all say things that hurt or offend other people. We will say things that don’t clearly articulate what we really mean. We will say foolish things. We will be incorrect from time to time. Others will also do all these same things to us. All these circumstances boil down to poor communication, lack of communion, and a loss of harmony amongst people. Yet, all these interactions are a superficial aspect of life. Down deep, we all want harmony. We all want peace. We all want to feel our communion with others, with humanity, and with all of life…

Beyond Cultural Tolerance: Towards A World Of Appreciation, by Michael Mamas“Beyond Cultural Tolerance: Towards A World Of Appreciation”
It’s common and natural that other cultures feel foreign to us. We can find them fascinating, but at the same time alienating. Our cultural appreciation then has a component of tolerance to it. Some may even feel that to be an open-minded global citizen is to be fascinated while tolerant. But tolerance has too much judgment. It’s as if you’re putting up with things you find weird or inappropriate, while considering yourself open-minded… Read more.

How to Purify the Global Vibration, by Michael Mamas“How to Purify the Global Vibration”
“Akash” is an ancient Sanskrit term that means space or atmosphere. It is considered the finest level of existence. It is like a canvas upon which all of creation is painted. You can feel into the Akash by ringing a bell and allowing the sound to dissipate out into silence. That silence contains within it a feeling. What you are feeling is the Akash in an undisturbed state. The quality of the Akash has a profound effect on the health of all the plants and animals… Read more.

Follow-up Is the Secret to Effective Delegation, by Michael Mamas“Follow-up Is the Secret to Effective Delegation”
Strong leadership isn’t just about delegating tasks; it is also about following up on those tasks and making sure they are done to your standards. People on my team sometimes feel like I ride them until things get done. However, I’ve learned the hard way that if you don’t, things all too often get pushed aside. You have to keep reminding, checking and rechecking until you know things have been done the way you want… Read more.
