  • The Realization

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:34 am
    By Leo Babauta Lately I’ve been practicing asking myself a question: What if this moment were already perfect, everything you needed to be happy? This question is transformative. If I’m upset about something, I reconsider the moment and realize that I’m being small-minded about something, and that if I look at the entire moment, I can appreciate how much I have to be grateful for. Being mad at someone, I can see that actually this person is pretty wonderful and I should be grateful for having them in my life. Being upset at a situation, I can see how much I actually have,…
  • A Guide to Changing Self-Destructive Behaviors

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:53 pm
    By Leo Babauta I have a reader who wants to make positive changes in her life, but can’t seem to stop certain behaviors. She writes: “I am consistently challenged with being mindful when buying food. What do you do when you are doing things that self-destructive and are not good and continue to do them. Is there an opportunity to change this?” This is such an excellent question, because I think we can all relate to this, can’t we? Who among us doesn’t do self-destructive behaviors from time to time, if not on a regular basis? I know that I’ve lived most of…
  • Pushing Past the Terrifying Dip in Motivation

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:53 pm
    By Leo Babauta My son, who is officially an adult in a matter of days, is facing a small crisis: the project he’s working on is not going well, and he’s ready to give up not only on the project but the career he was excited about not too long ago. I can feel the horrible mixture of discouragement, disappointment, difficulty, despair he must be feeling, because I’ve felt it too. I’ve felt this punch in the gut whenever projects or new ventures didn’t go well. I’ve given up, and felt the disappointment in myself. And I’ve pushed through this…
  • It’s Not Too Late to Change Bad Habits

    16 Oct 2014 | 10:22 am
    By Leo Babauta If you’re deeply in debt, or your bad health habits have overwhelmed you, it’s likely that you don’t feel you can make a big impact on those problems anymore. I know when I was an overweight, sedentary smoker, who was so far in debt that I was constantly depressed … I felt hopeless. It feels like any attempt you make to change your situation will have no real impact. It feels like it’s not worth making an effort. One reader wrote: ‘I keep feeling like I don’t know what to do that will have a significant impact and that at this point,…
  • The Smart Way to Stick to Habits

    13 Oct 2014 | 10:29 am
    By Leo Babauta Sticking to a new habit isn’t easy — but if you set up your habit change smartly, you can make it stick. Starting a new habit isn’t too hard — we often get excited about starting an exercise plan or diet or waking up early, for example. But a number of obstacles get in the way of sticking to the habit long enough for it to become automatic. Here are the usual obstacles: You lose enthusiasm: Probably the No. 1 reason people fail is that the enthusiasm they feel when they first start the habit, when they’re fantasizing about how great it’ll be,…

  • Reading Through Matthew #2 (14-28)

    21 Oct 2014 | 5:45 pm
    Since September  I have been reading through the commentary series The Bible Speaks Today, edited by John Stott. I post quotes from my morning readings (MWF – I do the OT on TTS) on Facebook and will periodically post to this blog. The post will include some of my thoughts on the New Testament book and the best quotes from the commentary (in blue). The commentary series starts with The Message of Matthew: The Kingdom of Heaven, by Michael Green. This is the second and final post on the Gospel of Matthew – you can read the first post here.  Chapter 14 continues the section in…
  • Ministry in Kansas

    21 Oct 2014 | 11:32 am
    After my time in Dallas I flew up to Kansas City for a Bible conference with a group of Palauans in Junction City Kansas. Old friend and Emmaus alumni Alister Joseph picked me up at the airport and graciously waited with (we had dinner at Appleby’s while we waited) me for over an hour as my luggage did not arrive on my flight. After dinner we drove through cold wind and rain for two hours to Junction City. The inauspicious start though was a not an indicator of how the rest of the weekend went. There were 50-60 Palauans there for the two day conference and we had a great time of fellowship,…

  • Fall Trip–Dallas #1

    My Annual Fall recruiting, conference, connecting trip to the US Mainland began October 5th with a flight from Guam, through Tokyo, to Dallas TX.

Monday was spent at Dallas Theological Seminary. The picture is of me standing next to the statue of Jesus washing Peter’s feet in the seminary courtyard. I got to meet with Patrick Pace who served this past summer as an intern at PIU. Patrick introduced me to Steve…

  • Bombing the Public Square

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:24 pm
    --> I am a big fan of Bill Maher and his show Real Time on HBO. I have actually been a fan of him since his Politically Incorrect days and even remember him making his comments that lost him his original show so long ago. He has been spearheading this election season a campaign he calls “Flip a District.” After receiving thousands of suggestions from people across the US, claiming their incumbent Congressperson as being the most useless and whose absence in Congress would make their state a better place, he chose Rep. John Kline from Minnesota. Kline, a Republican is not one of the…
  • The Pacific Remote Islands Marine Monument

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:38 pm
    Mr. Obama’s Pacific Monument By THE EDITORIAL BOARD OCT. 1, 2014 The New York Times  It’s safe to assume that most presidents have big ambitions and visions of lasting Rooseveltian achievement. Though, in recent history, the millstones of Washington’s pettiness and partisanship usually grind such dreams to dust. There are exceptions, which happen when presidents discover the Antiquities Act.This is the law, used by Theodore Roosevelt and many successors, by which the executive can permanently set aside public lands from exploitation, building an environmental legacy with a…

  • Paluman Marianas #2: I Sihek

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:57 am
    Eight years ago on my blog, I started a series titled "Paluman Marianas," meant to feature different native birds of the Marianas and my drawings or paintings of them. I only did one, for I Tettot or the Marianas Fruit dove, and never got around to posting another one. I have plenty of drawings and paintings that feature Guam's birds, in fact with my daughter Sumahi, I've added quite a few more. Sumahi loves to draw in general, but I've tried to teach her as much as I can about the native birds of the Marianas. She can name many of them, probably more than most kids nowadays. But sharing this…
