How Individual Contribution is Vital To Positively Impact the World

Nowadays, so many of us can’t stand to turn on the news — we feel so helpless, distraught, and angry at everything happening in the world — wars, nuclear threats, environmental catastrophes, gun violence, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and more. However, the vast majority of us who want to make a difference need to find a way to not get lost or frozen in feelings of discouragement and realize everyone matters a lot. This includes you, and that also means there’s a reason for potential optimism. 

Upgrading Traditional Myths of Happiness Through Success Into Greater Collective Opportunity and Wealth – Part 2

An ordinary life in western culture is generally based on the belief that certain values will make you happy. In my experience in 50 years of counseling, it has proven that even those that have succeeded have not achieved a high level of happiness, peace and fulfillment. This is the main point of discussion with clients I’ve had for 50 years. These are also some of the truly sincere, smart and successful people who have been aware and honest enough to be seeking a deeper, richer fulfillment.  

How Psycho-Politics Can Help Us Create a Better, More Peaceful World

There’s a pervasive lack of psychological and emotional awareness in our political discourse and social beliefs today. This lack of understanding stands in the way of solving the crises that currently imperil our democracy and undermine humanity’s efforts to stem global deterioration. The stakes are monumental and are worsening with each day, as evidenced by personal and political alienation, global warming, economic inequality and corruption on corporate and governmental levels. What is becoming painfully obvious is a missing conversation that we have to address. 

Homelessness is Solvable—A Cost-Effective and Impactful Solution to Homelessness

Homelessness is quite solvable. There is more than enough hope, and not just hope, but also resources for our homeless brothers and sisters to not only be given houses and communities for the rest of their lives but also for it to actually save costs for the government in the long run term. Let’s explore what we mean by this and how The Global Bridge Foundation has a few cost-effective solutions for eliminating homelessness in the next few years in California, the USA, and eventually in the whole world. 

The Need for an “Interconnected Psychology” In Our World Today – Part 1

Throughout history, the center of focus for humanity has been dominantly rooted in individual success, family protection, and the desire for adventure, fun, and pleasure. This has led to a recurring belief in many that this is normal and healthy and that our success will trickle down to those without opportunities. We need to recognize that we live in an interdependent world that has finally reached its limits of individualism and dominant focus on family.

The Fairy Tale Nature of A Normal Life

An ordinary life in western culture is generally based on the belief that certain values will make you happy. In my experience in 50 years of counseling, it has proven that even those that have succeeded have not achieved a high level of happiness, peace and fulfillment. This is the main point of discussion with clients I’ve had for 50 years. These are also some of the truly sincere, smart and successful people who have been aware and honest enough to be seeking a deeper, richer fulfillment.  

Bringing Heart and Wisdom To Our Country’s Division

No matter where we stand in our country’s political and civil alienation and split, we are all challenged together, and it is critical to recognize that we all have work to do to mend this. We can’t afford to withdraw, even though it is likely to be overwhelming for many of us. What if you’re clearly on the side of science, equal voting rights for all people, immigration reform, and opposing views on how to run defense, global safety, and different ideas of how to take care of everyone through economic strategy? 

How can restructuring police oversight build a community of trust?

America needs a quantum leap in law enforcement evaluation, given both the tremendous amount of dedicated police officers throughout the country and the numerous losses of life due to police brutality, negligence, and racism in a small segment of the ranks. A structural change that addresses the gaping wound that exists between the police within themselves, and the BIPOC communities is necessary and overdue. This is not an indictment on the police force throughout the country in general or for that matter in any one area in mass.

Practical Solutions to Ensure Gun Rights and Gun Safety for Americans

It is all too easy to polarize against the left-wing of the democratic party. It’s easy to say they want to take away our constitutional Second Amendment rights — the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. But, in reality, most of those in the democratic party want safety for the nation — the general population and especially our children. This is one of the two black and white views that amplify separation and alienation. The other extreme view is crucifying the gun owners that want guns, AR-15 rifles cartridges, and belts. It is vital to realize that most people buying these weapons are genuinely doing it for their own security and feelings of safety. 

Combining Regenerative Agriculture and Homelessness — Comprehensive Solutions to Bring the Bottom Up

The real Californian and national vision is to generate opportunities throughout the United States for grants and private funding for homelessness and low-income housing and combine these work opportunities with Regenerative Agriculture (RA) and other clean energy sources for the homeless. It is quite clear that the portion of the homeless population that isn’t dealing with the more severe issues of addiction or serious mental illness and a larger percentage of those that are low income are ripe candidates for this kind of community and work opportunity.

The Cost of Allowing Poverty to Exist

According to numerous studies, the average homeless person costs the government and the taxpayers $3000 a month. The biggest tragedy about the cost of allowing poverty to exist is that in the majority of situations it can easily be solved. Whether it’s job training or giving people opportunities to work in so many areas that can set them up for success — we have not focused on eliminating poverty as our true priority. This could be in training for clean energy, regenerative agriculture, transportation, infrastructure, and so much more.
