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.

'I Love You, I Hate You' – How to Leave the Pendulum Behind, by Michael Mamas“‘I Love You, I Hate You’ – How to Leave the Pendulum Behind”
In modern psychotherapy, there is a concept called positive transference, which is the projection of positive or idealized attributes onto another person. Oftentimes, our personal relationships are based upon positive transference. Infatuation with a new dating partner is often founded upon this idealized state. It’s not uncommon for positive transference to create a relationship that even leads to marriage… Read more.

Use this Ancient Technique to Find Inspired Solutions, by Michael Mamas“Use this Ancient Technique to Find Inspired Solutions”
We’ve all been there many times before: Our brains spin around in endless circles as we try to figure something out, solve a problem, or make a decision. We make lists of pros and cons, consult with our team members, consultants and friends, and strive to find a logical solution or something that just feels right. But the more we work with it, the more entangled the knot becomes. In ancient times, there was a famous Seer named Jaimini. He offered an approach to problem solving that is as profound and unique as it is simple and effective. It consists of four natural steps… Read more.

Respect: The Cornerstone of Success, by Michael Mamas“Respect: The Cornerstone of Success”
Respect is your most powerful tool in business, as in all of life. If people don’t respect you, you’re pretty much done. That holds true if you’re a boss, an employee or a freelancer. If you make a mistake, but people respect you, they will be understanding. But the converse is also true: If you make a mistake and they do not respect you, they will use it as further validation of their disrespect. So, what are the ingredients of respect? How do you gain another person’s respect? And perhaps even more importantly, how do you lose people’s respect?… Read more.

Moving Beyond Self-Limitation Begins Here, by Michael MamasThe Huffington Post

“Moving Beyond Self-Limitation Begins Here”
We all paint ourselves into a corner with our habitual thinking, feelings, and behavior. It’s not so difficult to see how other people do this, but it can be very difficult to see how we do it to ourselves. If only we could step out of our own head, and into someone else’s for just a minute, it would be worth a lifetime of psychotherapy. The more insight we gain into how other people paint themselves into a corner, the more capable we become of taking a look at how we do it.

Personal Growth: The Challenge and Value of Finding Your Own WayThe Huffington Post

“Personal Growth: The Challenge and Value of Finding Your Own Way”
We human beings are very complex. In spite of many attempts otherwise, how we think and feel seldom follows a completely rational course. It doesn’t work to tell ourselves how we are supposed to feel. We feel what we feel. We may try to override those emotions, but it only drives them deeper. The more we drive them beneath the surface, the more they fester and distort, only to surface again in another way, at another time…

“How Our Rational Age Will Transform Religion”
Participation in organized religion has certainly been on the decline over the past several years. Church attendance is way down and atheism is on the rise. Why is this happening? Can and should we do anything about it?

At first glance, religiously minded people consider the decline to be a terrible thing. However even for the religiously minded, it can be understood as a positive thing. This can be a guiding light for a future spiritual renaissance, in which attendance at spiritual organizations could reach an all-time high. How could this be?…
