    By Leo Babauta We all do it: our best intentions are to go to the gym, get started on writing something, do practice learning a language … but then we procrastinate. There isn’t a person on this planet who’s immune to the procrastination habit. How do we defeat this habit? Just as an athlete would, or a world-class chess player: daily training sessions. The problem, of course, is that we’re likely to put off the sessions! The only way around that is to 1. find your motivation, and 2. start as easy as possible. Make it so easy you can’t say no, and find a way to…

  • The Time When We’ll Be Present & Content

    By Leo Babauta Today, I only have questions. We’re striving for happiness and contentment, but when will we be there? I think we often see a time in the future when things will be better — we’ll have a better relationship, job, house, health situation, financial situation, and more. But when will that day come? What’s stopping us from being content right now? What’s stopping us from being present right now? Many of us can point to external conditions that get in the way of being present (some problem on our minds), or that get in the way of being happy and content.
  • A Simple, Powerful Self-Compassion Method

    By Leo Babauta When we’re frustrated with others, or feeling bad about ourselves … we often turn toward habits that comfort us: distractions food shopping smoking drugs/alcohol These don’t often work, because they tend to make us feel worse in the long run. We become unhappier, more stressed, and then need to seek comfort in these things again … and the cycle continues. These are sometimes the only ways we know of comforting ourselves! I know this because for a long time I always turned to all of the above for comfort when I was feeling stressed or bad about myself. It…
  • When Others Frustrate You

    By Leo Babauta There’s a way of being that I’m trying to cultivate in myself — to let go of wanting others to be a certain way. Here’s the problem: we all get frustrated with other people. We want our kids to do certain things, our spouses to be less something or other, our friends to change their lives, our relatives to be healthier, other people to be less rude, etc etc. So what can we do about this? It can drive us crazy, but we can’t make it happen. It’s out of our control. Trying to change others, wanting them to be the way we want them to be, just…
  • Your Internet Habits Create Your Reality

    By Leo Babauta Each of us has a different reality. And we’re creating that reality, and can shape it in many ways. We tend to think of reality as something external and absolute, like the sun shining down on us on a hot, lazy afternoon. That sun is really there, whether we believe it or not, right? But as humans, our reality is shaped by what we perceive. So one person will see the sun has overwhelmingly hot and oppressive, the other sees it as an opportunity for a great tan. Another will see it as a huge cancer machine. And still another will think the sun is an angry god to be feared…

As an infant and toddler during World War II, she survived the Japanese occupation of Guam, raiding of her house, capture of her father (CPO John F. Ploke, Zentsuji POW), starvation, emaciation, dysentery, witnessed the torture and execution of some of her family and friends during the forced march to Manenggon, and the near execution of her grandfather, Antanacio Taitano Perez, as a suspected American spy.

  • Makåna and Kakåhna

    Illustrated by Raph Unpingco In anthropology, a shaman is an individual who is a part-time specialist involved in healing. A sorcerer is an individual who communicates with the supernatural in the belief that spirits can act on their behalf for the purpose of good or evil. Although these terms, in addition to “medicine men” and “herbalists” are sometimes used interchangeably, Chamorros did distinguish between their healers, known as makåna, and their sorcerers, or kakåhna, who manipulated spirits to do evil.

    I am finished working through Volume 2 of Goldingay’s, Old Testament Theology, and have moved on to volume 3, Israel’s Life. In this volume Goldingay is looking at how Israel was to live, “not the life Israel actually lived”, but “the life the First Testament reckons it should have been and should be.” I continue to post quotes from Volume 3 on my Facebook page on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays. There will be a link to the blog posts on my Facebook page where you can comment. Please comment there. I love Goldingay’s perspective, but don’t always agree with him. So I welcome a…
  • Sunday Reading: A Fellowship of Differents, by Scot McKnight #3

    2 May 2015 | 2:09 pm
    This is the third installment of blogging through Scot McKnight’s newest book, A Fellowship of Differents: Showing the World God's Design for Life Together. Today I am looking at chapters 5 through 7 which are focused on the theme of love.  In this section McKnight points out that “love” is the main (and maybe only) measure of the godliness of the church. He begins with a biblical definition of love and then shows that love is hard work and that love is characterized by generosity. I am going through the book one section at a time every Sunday, posting some quotes on my Facebook…

    NO REST FOR THE AWAKE - MINAGAHET CHAMORRO

  • Islands of Obesity

    4 May 2015 | 1:19 am
    If you look at pictures of Chamorros a hundred years ago, we look markedly different today. I do not mean in terms of skin color and so on, but I mean in terms of size. If you look at images of Chamorros a century ago there are some who look healthy and comfortable in their size, but most, especially men are quite skinny. Descriptions of Ancient Chamorros allude to them being a bit on the larger side, healthy, but slightly overweight. A happy and comfortable plumpness. Chamorros today are a very large and very unhealthy people. Some of this can be blamed on environmental factors, such as…

  • Atate Book Launch

    29 Apr 2015 | 6:21 pm
    I spent a year working on getting the book "Massacre at Atate" by Jose M. Torres published. It is a first hand account of one of the few times during the Japanese occupation of Guam that the Chamorro people openly resisted and fought back. There are countless instances of Chamorros passively resisting, but this was one of the few moments that I've been able to collect where you can point to Chamorros using violent resistance to protect themselves. There are only a few men left who took up arms against the Japanese in July 1944 and Mr. Torres was one of the youngest at that time.We had a…
