25 TED Talks that will change how you see the world. The six types of Love: Physical, Sexual, Emotional, Intellectual, Practical and Spiritual. [8 mins to read] After my recent Valentine’s Day post (‘The Buddha in the Bedroom’) I received quite a few messages and questions about Love and relationships. One of the most common issues was around couples ‘growing apart’. So I want to address these questions here and write about six different types of Love. For the Nichiren Buddhists reading this, please note that I am writing today wearing my ‘Life Coach Hat’ rather than as a Buddhist quoting from the Gosho or citing guidance about meeting a Kosen Rufu partner.

Fat-free chocolate and absolutely no smoking: why our guilt about consumption is all-consuming. During a recent visit to California, I attended a party at a professor's house with a Slovene friend, a heavy smoker.

Fat-free chocolate and absolutely no smoking: why our guilt about consumption is all-consuming

Late in the evening, my friend became desperate and politely asked the host if he could step out on the veranda for a smoke. When the host (no less politely) said no, my friend suggested that he step out on to the street, and even this was rejected by the host, who claimed such a public display of smoking might hurt his status with his neighbours … But what really surprised me was that, after dinner, the host offered us (not so) soft drugs, and this kind of smoking went on without any problem – as if drugs are not more dangerous than cigarettes.

The Hubris Syndrome

So says King Claudius in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. I was reminded of the phrase when reading David Owen’s fascinating book, The Hubris Syndrome. Lord Owen was Britain’s youngest foreign secretary in the late 1970s, then leader of a new political party, the Social Democratic Party, so he has seen most of the world’s top leaders at close quarters.

He was also a doctor before he became a politician, so he neatly combines medical and political insights. His thesis, in a nutshell, is that the ‘hubris syndrome’ –over-confidence leading to self-destruction - is a particular kind of mental illness which affects not just politicians but military commanders and heads of large companies. The disease grows the longer the leader stays in power. Linguistic biomarkers of Hubris syndrome.
