THE STRESS OF PREJUDICE by guest blogger Arthur P. Ciaramicoli, author of THE STRESS SOLUTION
By Publicity Admin
Whenever we encounter someone we have an inherent prejudice against, whether conscious or unconscious, we begin to experience a degree of stress. When we are stressed we release the stress hormone cortisol, which limits our capacity for empathy while also causing repetitive negative thinking. If you have prejudices against several types of people, it is likely that your cortisol levels will be consistently high. In addition to causing negative thinking, excess cortisol can cause weight gain, inflammation, hair loss, muscle tissue breakdown, flabbiness, depression, anxiety, and memory loss.

ACTIVIST OR CURMUDGEON? by guest blogger William Martin, author of THE ACTIVIST’S TAO TE CHING
By Publicity Admin

Nothing can stop water as it journeys
from rainfall on the mountainside, 
in streams and rivers to the sea. 
Dams of stone and concrete, 
standing rigid in its path, 

are no match for its fluid power. 

When we meet the rigid powers, 
so confident of their strength, 
we flow around, 
pour over, 
seep under, 
or evaporate and rain down 
on the other side. 
Nothing can stop the river of revolution 
from reaching its ocean home.
