    By Leo Babauta Let’s say you’ve been wanting to quit smoking for awhile, or you’ve really been wanting to start exercising. All of a sudden, you read something that motivates you … you’re ready to make the change! You’re determined. You’re going to make this happen. That’s amazing. The question is: are you going to convert this determination into actual lasting change? How will you do that? The feeling of determination is wonderful, but it can be ephemeral. It doesn’t necessarily last for more than a few days, unless you create an…

  • Practicing Non-Judgment

    15 May 2015 | 8:26 am
    By Leo Babauta We go through our day judging our experiences, other people, ourselves: this is good, this is bad. If all goes well, most of it will be good, but more than we realize, we dislike certain experiences, things about people, about ourselves. We “like” online comments by others, or pages on the Internet. We give a thumbs up or thumbs down to movies, to restaurant experiences, songs. It’s ingrained in our thinking processes. What would it be like to drop all of that judging as good and bad? What would it be like to simply experience something, without judgment? Try…

    By Leo Babauta Lots of us want to change our habits — get healthier, procrastinate less, write a book, save some money, get fit, read more, get good at something. And when it comes to changing habits, we know what doesn’t work. What doesn’t work: saying you’re going to make a change, intending to, and then failing to do it. You’ve done this, and so have I: you say, “I’m going to start eating healthier and exercising!” And you truly mean to do it. And you start out trying your best. And then things just kinda fade away, fizzle out, flop. That’s…

    By Leo Babauta For most of us, our biggest sin is taking things for granted. I’m as guilty as anyone else: I wake up and rush into online work or reading, forgetting to appreciate what a miracle this new day is. I’m alive! I’ve been given another amazing day, full of opportunities, and that is truly breath-taking. I’m human, with a body and a conscious mind … and what an opportunity that is! We take this for granted, but if someone came up to you and said, “Hey, I can give you the power to make 10 people’s lives better every day of your life”…

    30 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    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…

  • More on the Weekend with the Grandkids

    24 May 2015 | 3:54 pm
    Happy Memorial Day! We have been enjoying the past week with the grandkids. Mike and Samantha came back from their vacation in Japan yesterday. But we had some fun with the kids before then on Saturday. I took them to the movies on Saturday afternoon so Joyce could have some quiet tree-cutting time. And what do you do when you have lots of wood in your yard? You roast hot dogs and marshmallows! So that is what we did Saturday night. Sunday morning we had a breakfast potluck at church and then picked up Mike and Sam at the airport. They came bearing gifts as you can see from the pictures.

    23 May 2015 | 2:44 pm
    I am continuing to read through Scot McKnight’s new book A Fellowship of Differents: Showing The World God’s Design for Life Together. In this book McKnight makes the point that the church is not and should not be a homogenous group of same-thinking people who are unified because they really have no differences. Instead the church shows the radical change made in our lives by the Spirit, as people from different cultural, ethnic, economic, and social backgrounds come together in unity that includes al the human variegated diversity. The value that binds this diverse group together is…

    This week Joyce and I have been watching the grandkids while Mike and Samantha are taking their vacation in Japan. When we agreed to do this we did not know it would begin the day after a category 2 typhoon hit the island and we would be in typhoon recovery mode. Nevertheless, things have worked out and it has been an enjoyable week with the kids. I have been taking Titus and Courage to school in the morning and then Joyce brings Serenity by PIU so she can go to work at the Japanese school. That means that Serenity and I have been going out to lunch a lot this week. The kids have been a…
  • Goldingay on Worship in the Old Testament

    22 May 2015 | 3:04 pm
    I am continuing to work through Volume 3 of Goldingay’s, Old Testament Theology, 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 this blog post 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 good discussion on Facebook.

    Thank you to our friends, Pastor Curt Miller and New Hope Christian Fellowship for the gift of two, top of the line, chain saws to PIU to help in our typhoon recovery efforts on campus. These will also be welcome additions to the our maintenance tool inventory. We have beautiful trees all over our campus (even after the typhoon – and everything grows fast here) which means that a chain saw is always helpful. We appreciate your support and partnership in providing excellent Christian higher education to the people of Guam, Micronesia and the Pacific Islands. Is it possible that Joyce might…

  • Quest for Decolonization #5: Liberation Theology with Father Miguel D'Escoto

    24 May 2015 | 4:08 pm
    This year's regional seminar featured two keynote addresses by Father Miguel D'Escoto, a longtime priest, champion of human rights and a former President of the United Nations General Assembly. He has been a very controversial figure because of his outspoken criticism of the United States in particular. As a priest in Nicaragua he was very supportive of the Sandanista Revolution even to the point of joining the government of Daniel Ortega and serving as the Minister of Foreign Affairs. For this and his other explicitly political activities he was suspended by Pope John Paul II in 1985. He was…

    The United Nations keeps a list of non-self-governing territories or places that remain colonies today that require assistance in achieving decolonization. At one point this list, after World War II, the UN recognized 72 colonies.

Which Chamorro is a household name, not just in Guam or the Marianas, but in the world? Are they any Chamorros out there who can represent the island, the culture and the people to the billions of people who aren't Chamorro and don't even know what Guam or a Chamorro is?There are lots of Chamorro musicians, some of whom have achieved minor fame outside of the Pacific, such as Johnny Sablan and Pia Mia.

He gave a short speech which began the first day, where he outlined the tasks we hope to accomplish and gave us some words of encouragement. He quoted part of the poem "Retorno" by Nicaraguan poet Ruben Dario. The words have stuck with me the entire time I've been here."Si pequeña es la Patria, unu grande la sueña"This translates to, "If the homeland is small, one dreams it large."  This is an important reminder for the Non-Self-Governing Territories…
