  • Christmas Season on Guam

    Even though it does not snow here on Guam, except inside the malls at specific times, we get into the Christmas spirit. The Christmas season seems to officially begin, not counting when the Christmas decorations get put up at Kmart and Home Depot in October, when Santa comes riding in on a carabao at Ypao park with dancing and a Christmas concert. So Joyce took the grandkids down to see it on Sunday December 7th. We also picked up a real Christmas tree last Saturday and decorated it in preparation for the arrival of Matt and his family this coming Sunday. To me, the Christmas season began…

  • Overwhelmed by All the Changes You Want to Make

    zenhabits
    18 Dec 2014 | 9:13 am
    By Leo Babauta If you had to make a list of all the habits you’d like to change or create, how many changes would be on the list? For many of us, we might have more than a dozen habit changes we’d like to make. And we want to make them all right now! I’ve had several people tell me recently that they are overwhelmed by all the changes they want to make. They want to eat better, meditate, do more yoga, procrastinate less, write more, get better at relationships, exercise more, and so on … but they’re paralyzed by the amount of change they want to make. In the end,…
  • My 2014 Successes and Failures

    15 Dec 2014 | 12:21 pm
    By Leo Babauta This has been quite a year for me: I moved to a new city, wrote and launched a book, traveled, got leaner, and failed at a bunch of things. I don’t normally do a review of my year, but looking back on the massive amounts of things I succeeded and failed at, I thought it would be useful to share what I’ve done and learned. The biggest things I learned: It’s easy to take on too much, because everything sounds amazing. It’s painful to simplify after you’ve taken on too much, but the alternative is worse. Growth is gradual, continual, and messy.
  • Finding the Motivation to Change Your Entire Life

    11 Dec 2014 | 8:53 am
    By Leo Babauta Almost exactly 8 years ago today, I ran my first marathon and soon after I started Zen Habits. I’d changed a dozen or so habits, lost weight, was getting out of debt, quit smoking. And almost 7 years ago, I quit my job. That was a period of intense and profoundly scary life changes for me, but they were all of my choosing. I decided to make them happen, and I pushed until they did. Today I’d like to share a few things that worked for me, in case you’re considering changing your life. Maybe you want to quit your job and start a business, or start an…
  • When You’re Lonely

    8 Dec 2014 | 12:26 pm
    By Leo Babauta Sometimes, when Eva and the kids are out of town, I get lonely. I’m so used to having people around me that being by myself becomes strange, quiet, empty. And this feeling of emptiness can be frightening. I know it’s fashionable to say that it’s wonderful to be cool with being alone, but for many people, it’s a depressing thing. We can run to junk food and mindless distractions and sometimes even destructive behaviors, just to comfort ourselves and hide from the fear of being alone. I’ve been exploring this feeling of loneliness, and I recommend…
  • The Brain’s Fast Mode

    5 Dec 2014 | 11:26 am
    By Leo Babauta On a typical day, I’ll be in a work mode that looks something like this: I’ll check my email and process it as quickly as possible. Then I’ll open a document to write something. I’ll quickly switch to one of my favorite sites for finding well-written or useful online articles. Then I’ll switch back to the writing. Then I’ll go do some cleaning. Then back to the writing. The problem is that my mind isn’t in a mode for focusing on the writing. It’s in Fast Mode, brought on by the processing of email, where I will make quick…

  • December on Guam

    18 Dec 2014 | 2:36 pm
    It’s December on Guam and the weather outside is never frightful. In fact it is always delightful. Well, except when we have a December typhoon which has not happened in 12 years. For us, December, in our 21 years on Guam, has always been the end of the Fall semester at PIU, Christmas programs and parties, advent services, going to visit family or having them come here (that is what happening this year) and enjoying what is probably the most pleasant weather of the year on Guam. So here are a few random pictures from this December. If you are digging out from under snow where you are please…
  • The Crucified God by JÜrgen Moltmann #3

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:13 pm
    The three final chapters of the The Crucified God, are “three systematic chapters which will develop the consequences of this theology of the crucified Christ for the concept of God (Chapter 6), for anthropology (Chapter 7) and for a critical theory of church and society (Chapter 8). These chapters are basically applications of the previous ones to theology, psychology and politics/culture. Chapter 6 asks the question, how do we form a concept of God “which seeks to understand ‘the godforsakenness of Jesus’ on the cross.” Do we really begin and base our theology on the cross? The…

  • A World Split Apart: Dualism in Western Culture and Theology

    13 Dec 2014 | 2:28 pm
    PIU faculty member M. James Sawyer has recently published his book, A World Split Apart: Dualism in Western Culture and Theology, on Kindle. As promised, we will discuss this book here and on my Facebook page (easier to manage comments there) with a post on the first half of the book today and the second half a week from now. You can pick up Jim’s book for $2.99 at Amazon here and read it on your Kindle or computer. You can then join the discussion this coming week. Today I am looking at pages 1-16 (through the discussion about Augustine). Jim begins by pointing out that “Western thinking…
  • The Crucified God by JÜRGEN MOLTMANN #2

    11 Dec 2014 | 2:56 pm
    In this post I will continue my discussion of Moltmann’s, The Crucified God, The Cross of Christ as the Foundation and Criticism of Christian Theology. In today’s section I will look at chapters 3-5. In these chapters Moltmann looks at Jesus in terms of who he was historically (3), who he is in terms of the cross and how a theology of Christ developed from that (4) and then who he is in regard to his resurrection and eschatology (5). As before for discussion and comment please go to my Facebook page. In chapter 3, Questions About Jesus, Moltmann asks 4 questions about God (see below). He…

    NO REST FOR THE AWAKE - MINAGAHET CHAMORRO

  • Rudof Agaga' Gui'eng-na

    16 Dec 2014 | 11:01 am
    I didn’t grow up singing any Chamorro Christmas songs. There was little to no Chamorro in my house growing up in Mangilao. We celebrated Christmas, but didn’t do it in the way that many Chamorros do it. Where it involves a bilen, the creation of a nativity scene, the making of bunelos dagu, or the singing of Chamorro Christmas songs, the majority of which are Catholic in nature. So learning about Chamorro Christmas experiences, the stereotypical, more general kind is bewildering in a way. I am coming into traditions that people who sometimes know far less Chamorro language than I do and…

    This semester I was very excited to offer a new course, Tiningo' Tinifok at UOG, which focused on teaching the basics for weaving. We had 12 students for the class, who learned how to weave a variety of objects in both hagon niyok (coconut leaf) and akgak (pandanus). I look forward to offering more courses like this in the future, which focus on material culture and traditional knowledge and make academic connections between the two.Here are some images from the class:

    9 Dec 2014 | 8:54 am
     Even though almost everyone in the world will probably tell you that democracy is the greatest system of government in the world, that doesn't mean that people don't loathe it. People will generally loathe their own particular forms of democracy and only praise or love it when its existence is being shaded or overshadowed by some competing alternative. But even though they may loathe the ideas of Senators, Mayors, Governors or Presidents as being positions that are often held by cheats and liars, they tend to either tolerate or like the people who actually hold those positions. In a…
