George McGovern: the Dalai Lama of American politics

George McGovern: the Dalai Lama of American politics


A personal reflection about a presidential candidate who moved me — and whom I met through Hunter S. Thompson

BY PAUL KAIHLA — The Soul’s Code community forged a space on the internet in the spirit of sharing, healing and insight.

It’s through that prism that I share a personal story that connects with a national event: George McGovern, the Democratic candidate for president against Richard Nixon in 1972, died on October 21, 2012. (May his soul be sanctified).

Many politicians die — longtime Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter died on October 14, 2012. So why these pixels about George McGovern?

In my experience, he was the most spiritual of politicians — and I say these words from direct experience because he granted me an interview in his Washington, D.C. office when I was 20 years old.

Find a single snippet of tape where George McGovern ever slashed an opponent.

A non-pharma cure for headaches, allergies and other ills


A diet and digestion expert has developed an agent that doesn’t require a prescription — and promises better results than a pill made by AstraZeneca or GlaxoSmithKline. The new enzyme therapy.

BY ELLEN CUTLER —  Do you remember how you felt as a child — healthy, happy, bursting with energy and full of enthusiasm?  As the years pass, many of us lose our connection with that effervescent spirit.

Our sleep no longer refreshes us, and we become resigned to feeling fatigued, stressed, and/or fuzzy-headed.  Next to depression and allergies, lack of energy is the third-most prevalent ailment among adult Americans, affecting 33 million people.

Dealing with an angry person: 4 choices


When people lose it, one tactic is the Aikido of Communication

SOUL’S CODE —  Like a scene out of the Michael Douglas movie, Falling Down, a just-divorced aerospace worker in California’s “Inland Empire,” dressed up as a Santa on Christmas Eve 2008 and shot nine people at his in-laws’ holiday party.

The  day after Christmas, 2008 in Philadelphia, 29-year-old James Joseph Cialella Jr. shot a father in a movie theatre after arguing with the latter and his son while watching the Brad Pitt-Cate Blanchett vehicle, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

On July 20, 2012, America had another Columbine-style shooting in Colorado — this time in a multiplex called Cinemark (here is their retrograde stock symbol), and the title of the thriller happened to be “Dark Knight.”

The power of the unknown

The power of the unknown


Many of us fear the unknown and the uncertain. Here is how to align yourself with both

SPECIAL TO SOUL’S CODE: BY TONY SAMARA — From Wall Street to the Great Wall, the business values of the West have swept the world. And one thing that the commercial culture around us dislikes intensely is uncertainty. Everything from the global insurance industry to the derivates market that caused the 2008 financial crisis are set up to act as a hedge against uncertainty and the unknown.

Perhaps this helps explain why our society suffers from a collective neurosis.

The greatest love story ever told

The greatest love story ever told


I fell into a world of hurt. My way out? How about just loving myself

BY JENNIFER SCALIA — My love story isn’t about a lover, per se. Instead, it is about the relationship I decided to have with myself.

Sounds quaint but think about it for a moment.

We’ve all been taught to love others as we love ourselves. The Bible told us so.

But how many of us truly love ourselves? I, for one, never learned how to do it.

Love without fear


The phrase, “I love you,” is an empty one until you can face these four fears

BY DR. ANGELA HEPPNER — When was the last time you said to someone “I love you”?

These have to be the three most precious words uttered when spoken from the heart with genuine meaning.

Is this not what everyone wishes to hear? It can be so easy for us to express our true feelings to some and not to others. Why is this?

There are four main reasons why this phrase is prevented from being expressed freely.

Why I make compassion my safety net. (Editor’s note: the author is the model)

BY JANICE CARTER-LEVITCH — We all have it within us.

The ability to be still and observe the world around us.

To know and understand what ground we stand on. Meaning who we really are. Most of us are constantly searching and wanting to discover the essence of our existence.

Be still and listen to what resides within you. Your thoughts about who you are.
