Karma - Clean and Modern Wordpress Theme Forgiveness Forgiveness WHAT I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT FORGIVENESSBy Aba Gayle What is Forgiveness? What does it mean? Why is this such a difficult concept?

Faith, unconditional love, guilt free, sinless, letting go, love, intention, willingness, choice, liberation, healing, trusting, fearless, release of guilt, grace, blooming of a seed, personal evolution, compassion, release of pain, turning it over, etc. These same students listed the following words under The Shadow Side of Forgiveness: Loss, despair, anger, distrust, hurt, revenge, betrayal, stuck in the past, frustration, grief, attack, defense, projection, attachment to results, spite, regret, hate, judgment, jealousy, no faith, control, shame, shattered dreams, etc. What are some of the things you might encounter when you talk with others about forgiveness?

Peacebuilders International Poet and Philosopher David Whyte on Anger, Forgiveness, and What Maturity Really Means by Maria Popova “To forgive is to assume a larger identity than the person who was first hurt.” “Our emotional life maps our incompleteness,” philosopher Martha Nussbaum wrote in her luminous letter of advice to the young. “A creature without any needs would never have reasons for fear, or grief, or hope, or anger.” Anger, indeed, is one of the emotions we judge most harshly — in others, as well as in ourselves — and yet understanding anger is central to mapping out the landscape of our interior lives. This undervalued soul-mapping quality of anger is what English poet and philosopher David Whyte explores in a section of Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words (public library) — the same breathtaking volume “dedicated to WORDS and their beautiful hidden and beckoning uncertainty,” which gave us Whyte on the deeper meanings of friendship, love, and heartbreak.

Advanced Post Types Order | Nsp Code How to change WordPress Posts Order ? How to do that.. The WordPress core developers implemented this great tool called "custom post type", but a very limited method to make such posts content ordered was supplied. This great plug-in come to help on that matter, any custom post type hierarchically or not can now be sorted by category, date, search, through a very easy and intuitive way using a jQuery Drag and Drop Interface driven by an AJAX engine. Is this plugin right for me? This is simple to answer, do you need to order WordPress custom post types including default posts and pages? I love the fact that your plug-in is very easy to use and came to it from a recommendation by Pagelines who created the theme PlatformPro. I want to thank you for this great plug-in, it's a great piece of code which look's like it's getting allot of attention during last time. This plug-in is what I've been looking for for a long time! How about to auto-sort the post types by a custom field?

Azim N. Khamisa PeaceTXT: Using Mobile Technology to End Violence When violence threatens to break out on city streets, in the run-up to an election, or in a land dispute, how can community leaders instantly reach out to urge calm and quash false rumors? It turns out that the key may already be in our pockets: the mobile phone. PeaceTXT builds on the proven success of one-on-one violence prevention programs and is exploring the potential of mobile technology to reach more people in high-risk situations more quickly, stopping violence and creating a more durable peace. Separately, two PeaceTXT tactics have already been shown to work. Person-to-person efforts to interrupt and prevent violence by treating it like an infectious disease have proven effective. Can an analogue public health model for addressing violence be combined with the use of mobile phones to influence behavior in a new and powerful way that prevents bloodshed and fosters reconciliation in places all around the world? PeaceTXT is poised to answer that question. Project Updates

The Workhorse and the Butterfly: Ann Patchett on Writing and Why Self-Forgiveness Is the Most Important Ingredient of Great Art by Maria Popova “The ability to forgive oneself … is the key to making art, and very possibly the key to finding any semblance of happiness in life.” “All makers must leave room for the acts of the spirit,” Ursula K. In her magnificent memoir-of-sorts This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage (public library), novelist Ann Patchett offers one of creative history’s finest and most convincing counterpoints to this myth. Ann Patchett by Heidi Ross She writes in the introduction: The tricky thing about being a writer, or about being any kind of artist, is that in addition to making art you also have to make a living. In my mind, fiction and nonfiction stayed so far away from each other that for years I would have maintained they had no more a relationship than fiction and waitressing. Logic dictates that writing should be a natural act, a function of a well-operating human body, along the lines of speaking and walking and breathing.

Forgiveness News The Global Peace Initiative of Women Promises A beautiful and deeply moving portrait of seven Palestinian and Israeli children. Emmy award-winning and Academy award-nominated, PROMISES follows the journey of a filmmaker who meets these children in and around Jerusalem, from a Palestinian refugee camp to an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Although they live only 20 minutes apart, these children exist in completely separate worlds, divided by physical, historical and emotional boundaries. PROMISES explores the nature of these boundaries and tells the story of a few children who dared to cross the lines to meet their neighbors. The children of PROMISES offer refreshing, personal and sometimes humorous insight into the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. With remarkable balance and a compelling blend of pathos and humor, this Oscar-nominated, Emmy Award winning film moves the conflict out of politics and into the realm of the human.
