1. The A.A. Twelve-Step Philosophy
The twelve-step philosophy that is used as a foundation for Alcoholic Anonymous contains some pretty profound advice that can be used as a support system for virtually any type of addiction one may face in one's lifetime.
2. The Power of Words
We all concede that our thoughts play a role in our habits, actions, and lives. But thoughts do not have the social impact that words have. In The Power of Words, I examine how not consciously paying attention to the words we speak can have a devastating impact on ourselves and on those around us.

As a Buddhist spiritual leader, religious philosopher, Dalai Lama has brought much peace to humanity through his compassionate teaching. Here are some magnificent quotes by Dalai Lama. I hope his words quoted in this article serve to enrich your life and your personal spiritual journey.
8. Is the Death Penalty Murder or Justice?
"Thou shalt not kill" is really good advice. Or, does it mean don't kill except..
9. Evil or Instinct?
What is evil? Does it exist within our selves or does it originate from a force that is beyond our control? How much of what we consider to be evil is actually an instinctual response to danger?
