Don't Worry, Be Happy

Why Worry About the Future

How to cope with anxiety when it won’t do you any good.

Fear is Rarely Rational

We all worry about the future. For instance, right now I am waiting on some contracts that could change my life.  It’s a bit nerve wracking. Or it should be. Mostly – I just keep plodding along hoping for the best not really spending much time thinking about it.

How do I manage to stay so calm? Well, practice.  Meditation helps, certainly. But I also understand that the best way to ensure a good future is for me to actively work towards it.

How to deal with your fears about others

Hate how you feel about others?

You aren’t alone. How reminding yourself that others are human too can help you overcome your hatred/disgust/annoyance regarding others.

Stop looking for the flaws in others and focus on yourself

I like to joke that I’m a Humanist, which means I like people in the abstract, real people tend to annoy me.  But I’ve found that the more I’ve actively tried to practice humanism in my everyday life – like when I’m at the supermarket or in a crowd of people, the less annoyed or frustrated I am with people.

It is very easy to assume you know what motivates another person. But until you talk to them, you don’t really know. And even then, you still don’t.

Finding meaning in your life

Finding Your Purpose

We all need goals – the problem is – what goals will help us to feel fulfilled?

Making a fairer world isn't going to happen on its own

Finding meaning and purpose in your life is one of the great problems of existence.  Without a purpose we feel lost.  Sure, we get up and eat and continue to breathe, but we don’t feel fulfilled and we don’t have a sense of purpose. Without a purpose or a goal to pursue, we suffer from ennui.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, all you need is a purpose. But not any old purpose. Because people’s whose purpose is just to get rich or get married or have kids, they tend to suffer from mid-life crisis at some point. Basically, once they’ve accomplish their goals – they are left without goals and have to deal with their brain repeating “now what” in an endless loop.

What Humanists should be talking about

The Conversation We Should Be Having

Why I think Humanists need to stop obsessing about Atheism.

Humanism is about caring for other humans and the communities in which we live

The Humanist magazine had a great article in it recently from Sikivu Hutchinson. (See: http://thehumanist.com/magazine/may-june-2014/up-front/who-wants-to-be-a-rocket-scientist-race-gender-and-the-stem-divide ) I think it is right on and it’s the sort of conversation we need to be having as Humanists.

Simply put – people believing in religion is not our biggest most pressing problem!  Discrimination against atheists happens, and we need to come out and deal with it. But is that a Humanist problem? Yes – but only because it’s a human rights issue.
