“Whatever is rejected from the self, appears in the world as an event.” Carl Jung Medicine is the art of healing the physical body. Science measures, counts and classifies. Architects build; lawyers advocate.

Psychological awareness tells many, for the first time, what the real world looks like, smells like…feels like. Psychology teaches us that life is both uplifting and absurd…kind and cruel…forgiving and rejecting…and, often, complex and unfair. Evil dictators live into their nineties, while innocent children are killed by powerful hurricanes, uncaring tsunamis and drive-by shootings.

What provides you meaning in life? Most Americans mention family (69 percent), according to recently published polling and analysis by the Washington, D.C.-based Pew Research Center. Also mentioned were career (34 percent), money (23 percent), spirituality and faith (20 percent), friends (19 percent), activities and hobbies (19 percent), health (16 percent), home and surroundings (13 percent) and learning (11 percent).

We asked our panel of religious leaders of the … [Read more...] about What provides you meaning in life?
Eugene "Mean Gene" Okerlund, whose deadpan interviews of pro wrestling superstars like "Macho Man" Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan made him a ringside fixture in his own right, has died. He was 76. World Wrestling Entertainment announced Okerlund's death on its website Wednesday. Okerlund's son, Tor Okerlund, told The Associated Press that his father died early Wednesday at a hospital in Sarasota, Florida, near his home in Osprey, Florida, with his wife, Jeanne, by his side. Tor Okerlund said his father, who had undergone three kidney transplants, fell a few weeks ago "and it just kind of went from bad to worse."
