The feeling of being lost and lonely can be overwhelming. Those are the times I must work especially hard; those are the times that test my faith in God. I may come to feel psychologically strong by moving through difficult periods with grace and trust. Feeling at home in the Universe is a rare feeling, which may only come a few times in my life. However, I can prepare myself by living the good life and by trying to feel spiritually comfortable each and every day. I can do this by continual studying, regular prayer, and open-minded, open-hearted interactions with other human beings. Only through avid spiritual pursuits and a living a healthy lifestyle can I ensure living in tune with God's will.
A may gain strength, direction, and the uplifting of my spirit also through enthusiastic spiritual pursuits. Church and other spiritual social gatherings will allow me the opportunity….

They also pointed out that my uncle would hardly have approved of the manner in which I was handling his death. In fact, it was this particular observation, more than any other, that helped snap me out of my grief and self-pity.
Ultimately, the experience taught me that life's setbacks must be faced with understanding and equanimity, failing which one runs the risk of falling prey to despair and stagnation. Indeed, as Erikson rightly points out, the key to a healthy identity lies in developing a sense of integrity; a feeling that life is worthwhile, irrespective of hardships and losses (Wu). Though my uncle's death played a major role in my self-development, I must confess that it also left behind one negative effect. And, that is, an irrational fear that I will loose other loved ones to death, as suddenly as I lost my uncle.

The lessons I learnt from the….

Life of Jesus, Critically Examined
Penned in the tumultuous year of 1835, during an era defined by dogmatic religious intolerance and institutionalized adherence to the edicts of the church, David Friedrich Strauss' The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined represents an astonishingly bold assault on the complacency of Christianity, one which compels readers to challenge their own conception of faith. A respected theologian with a philosophical yearning to comprehend the world around him, Strauss found himself torn at the tender age of twenty-three between his desire to live the pious life of a local pastor, and his increasing awareness to the writing of thinkers such as Schleiermacher and Hegel. His first foray into the realm of religious thought was "The Doctrine of the Restoration of All Things in Its Religious-Historical Significance," a doctoral dissertation written in 1831 which argued that "the restoration of all finite things to the creator, and the concomitant….

Scientific Method

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7IUFdtZNXI&feature=related

Although this is a video from the children's educational television program Sesame Street and thus designed for younger viewers, it can nonetheless prove a useful tool to those who are struggling with the processes that go into the scientific method. It also shows how important it is to make a hypothesis, but to be willing to change that hypothesis when to results of the experiment proves that hypothesis to be fault. All too often, people attempt to make the results fit into their theory rather than admit their initial theory was wrong and formulate a new one. The video instructs on the steps of Scientific Method and also makes clear the importance of the process.

Life of Psychology
Understanding and tolerance of the behavior of other people

As a psychologist, I always do not do what I would like to do. My intended thoughts and behavior are blocked by the behavior of other people. I believe that my behaviors and thoughts are a result of various forces such as pushing and pulling me in different directions. However, I rarely apply the concept of reinforcement and I decry the idea of enhancing my will power. I often point out that much self-help advice is unquestionably correct and very simple. Other people have forced me to stop procrastinating as I can now plan for my time and be successful when dealing with patients (Bugelski, 2009). However, this advice has been useless since I have failed to follow it. The willpower of other people has hindered me from making such a change. I know that if I identify the forces….

Interview No. 3 - "Bill" (age 54 years):

The interview with Bill took place immediately following the conclusion of the interview with Anne who left the dining room after being thanked for her participation and the refreshments. Bill is a semi-retired disabled veteran of the U.S. Air Force with Vietnam-era service; he continues to work part-time as a pizza delivery driver. Because the couple's ownership of a shared computer with high-speed Internet access had been established in the interview with Anne, this interview skipped these questions and went directly to an interrogatory concerning what Bill used the computer for most of the time. Bill replied that, "I like to play chess sometimes, and I've been a big fan of all of the Tiger Woods golfing games on CD for the computer." As to socializing on the computer, Bill said this feature was available in his chess room, but he avoided it….


In this mix, the therapist will have to identify what the client's view of the situation is. If it reflects reality, the humanist-existentialist. If not, the other solution-based approach may be the best. If this author were the therapist, it would be prudent to see if the entire family unit could be engaged for family therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy might be necessary for dysfunctional behaviors on the part of the adults. The therapist will need to see if the issues are two, three, or four levels based upon ogers' humanist approach based upon a discordant relationship between these levels. ogers lays out several conditions that would provide for a client-centered therapist the discover the depth beneath the upper layer. In general, the deeper the layer, the more extensive the intervention that is necessary (ogers, 1957, 96-97).

Conclusion

To sum up, a well balanced therapist, should have the expertise to combine the humanistic-existentialist….

Particularly speaking in the context of economic growth, the world witnessed remarkable progress as technological revolution was started and countries had understood the need to have independent economy so that they cannot be defeated by other countries. High economic growth was witnessed in Europe, USA and Japan as well. [4: Peter Duus and Kenji Hasegawa, Rediscovering America (USA: University of California Press, 2011).]
The overview of Japanese tradition and their consumption patterns show that Japan made high development in economy and industry[footnoteRef:5]. Many quality tools were developed in Japan which proved to be worth following all over the world. The economy was booming by leaps and bounds hence Japan was assumed to be direct competitor of USA at many fronts. The changes were noted by the laymen in Japan particularly the farmers witnessed incredible changes in their lifestyle[footnoteRef:6] after the war ended in 1945. [5: Wm ary, Carol Gluck and….

Also, I think we pursue pleasure in most of the choices we make, such as taking an umbrella when it is raining and we have to walk, so as not to feel the discomfort of getting our clothes wet and so on. In most of the cases, I and people in general are pursuing pleasure, by doing what we like and trying to avoid anything that gives us displeasure. Thus, although I cannot always target those pleasures that would be delightful, such as doing only what gives me immediate gratification, in one form or another, my life is governed by the pursuit of pleasure. Many times, I feel the imperative desire of doing things in a certain order, thus prioritizing pleasure. Thus, as Freud observed, the pleasure principle, in its various forms governs the life of all human beings.

Life and Death
PAGES 1 WORDS 360

Life and death seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. In fact, death entails the absence of life. Yet without life, there would be no death, and without death, there would be no life as we know it. All living things eventually run their course and perish; some just beings live longer than others. Therefore, life and death are like two sides of the same coin because everything that lives is destined to die.
However, life and death differ in some overt and significant ways. For example, a dead ant cannot run or eat. It does not respond to any stimuli. Its nervous system is shut down and its body will soon start to decompose. A live ant, on the other hand, will run when provoked, will eat when hungry, and will respond to threatening stimuli. The live ant's body courses with electricity because it is alive. The differences….

Life Styles Circumplex
PAGES 5 WORDS 1266

Life Styles Inventory (LSI) is designed to provide individuals with timely feedback concerning ways that their personal and professional lives can be changed for the better. Using a series of "styles" to measure various aspects of life, the LSI can provide some startling accurate results when respondents are honest and forthright in their responses. This paper provides a summary and analysis of the results of the administration of the LSI to the author, followed by a summary of the research and important findings in the conclusion.
Self-Actualizing Style

A score in the medium range that is close to the high range means that people with this score are "generally confident" concerning their ability to effect change and improvement in themselves and others. Individuals with this score are pragmatic with a wide range of interests and are able to excel at those things that are deemed rewarding. An interesting finding for a medium….

Life of Paul Daily Living
PAGES 3 WORDS 963

Life of Paul
Paul the Apostle is one of the most significant figures in early Christian history. He was born soon after Christ was, and Paul's conversation to Christianity remains one of the central allegories in all of scripture. Therefore, Pauline texts are at the heart of the Christian canon. Paul was born in Tarsus, the "principle city of the lush plain of Cilicia in the southwest corner of Asia Minor," which is modern-day Turkey (Pollack, 2012, p. 16). Tarsus was a melting pot of the Middle East, putting Paul into contact with people as diverse as Hittites, Greeks, Assyrians, Persians, and Macedonians (Pollack, 2012). Paul's early daily life was formative for his later intellectual and spiritual development. Pollock (2012) describes Tarsus as a "city between the mountains and the sea," (p. 16). Born in "a city between the mountains and the sea" provides an apt symbol for the spiritual growth….

PAGES 3 WORDS 1010

Life in the 1950's
The 1950's was a very pivotal time in the history of the United States. Essentially, this time period was one of transition. There were several factors that were responsible for some major transitions in the country during this epoch. The most prominent of these was the conclusion of the Second World War the previous decade, which set the stage for America's dual-superpower struggle with the Soviet Union (which was the only other developed nation to escape the war relatively unscathed). In fact, one can argue that the conclusion of World War II in the 1940's helped to influence virtually every other major social, economic, and political factor affecting the country. From an economic standpoint, the country was in the final decade of its position as the leading manufacturer in the world. Politically, it was engaged in the Cold War and attempting to stymie the tide of communism….

Joyce is a 68 year-old woman who was born in British Columbia, Canada but moved to the United States with her family when she was sixteen years old. An engineer, Joyce has lived in seven different countries while on contract for her work. She is currently settled in Ashville, North Carolina where she is semi-retired. Joyce says that she still does consulting work as an engineer but that she is trying to “phase out” of a high-pressure lifestyle and ease her way into what she calls the “Third Act” of her life. Joyce does not like the term “golden years,” as she believes it connotes old age. She considers herself young and healthy, and stays active by hiking and doing yoga. Because of her job, her being a dual citizen, and her lack of interest in politics, Joyce claims that she has remained relatively detached from what is going on in….

There are a couple of ways to approach this. You can focus on research that has already been done, or you can survey elderly people in your community who live alone. That may be difficult, especially if you live in a small town or you don't know many people, but it can provide you with valuable information if you can get enough people to take the survey. You also need to decide what you want to know about those elderly people who live alone. Are you interested in their health? Their safety? How they handle daily life tasks or emergencies?....

1. A diet or lifestyle related disease is one that is brought about specifically because of the type of diet the person has or the lifestyle he or she chooses to live. 2. Obesity causes many health issues. The most common are sleep apnea, type II diabetes, and heart disease. 3. Obesity is linked to both diet and lifestyle. Someone who overeats and also does not exercise can become obese over time. 4. In society, obesity causes higher health care costs, "fat shaming," and discomfort for many people because of a lack of ability to accommodate larger-sized people (think airplane and bus seats,....
