We live in a world of easy friendships - people here for you when it's easy, 'so-sorry-but-I-have-an-errand-to-do-now' when it's not.

I'm proud to say I was part of a movement in which we sang 'All You Need Is Love' at political rallies.

Jesus was a human being who, while on Earth, completely self-actualized and fulfilled in all ways the potential glory that lies within us all.

The point of Jesus' existence wasn't to lessen or diminish our appreciation of each other, but to expand our appreciation of each other by reminding us what lies within all of us, because Jesus was an example of the pinnacle of human evolution.

Judaism is interesting in that there is something there that I think you just can't understand if you're not a Jew - it moves into a realm of true mystery.

Our task, in the aftermath of September 11, was and continues to be the transformation of the effects of evil into something beautiful and good.

I think the heartbreak of September 11 - America's grief not only over the loss of life but also the loss of our own innocence - has expanded us as people because it has tenderized our hearts. On a psychological level, the American people have matured as a result of that awful day.

I read an article somewhere that stated 1 in 4 American women will be considered clinically depressed in their lifetime. This should be more than a gold mine for pharmaceutical companies - it should be a wake-up call.

In all the great religious systems, there are divine beings who represent the feminine face of the divine.

In our society, as people pass out of young adulthood, they tend to relate to themselves more in terms of what they are no longer than what they are now, and that's psychologically low-grade devastating.

I remember I was walking through a store, and I saw clothes a 25-year-old would wear. And the conversation in my head was, 'I'm not young and fabulous anymore.' But, immediately, there was a voice that said, 'No, you can be older and fabulous.' In other words, still just as fabulous, but in a different way.

Marriage can be a magnificent lesson in becoming our best selves; that is true.

Life is not a piece of tragic fiction in which, at the end of the reading, we all get up and go out for drinks.

As we mature through the years, we access more deeply information we had only abstractly understood before.

I have known healthy, wealthy people who were depressed, and people with critical illnesses who could honestly attest to joy.

While overeating would be seen by some as an indulgence of self, it is in fact a profound rejection of self. It is a moment of self-betrayal and self-punishment, and anything but a commitment to one's own well-being.

Your relationship to food is but a reflection of your relationship to yourself, as is everything in your life.

All of us wish we'd had perfect childhoods, with a mother and father who modeled ideal parental attitudes and taught us to internalize the tenets of self-love. Many of us, however, did not.

The man I love may decide tomorrow that he loves me no more - but if my heart remains open, I will endure the storm.

Marriage, like everything else in the world, is holy or unholy depending on the purpose the mind ascribes to it.

With thoughts of the past and concerns about the future, we rob ourselves of a full experience of the present.

Ironically, it is when we identify with our spirits rather than our bodies that we are most powerful on the material plane. Our overidentification with the world does not give us power within the world so much as it diminishes our power here. It makes us frightened and nervous and full of anxiety.

Sometimes it's easier to love people when there is a healthy distance between us.

Spiritual 'exercise' keeps your mind in shape the way physical exercise keeps your body in shape.

It's tempting, when confronted by political malfeasance, to become so absorbed with its symptom that we give too little attention to treating its cause.

Political propaganda seeks to affect the way people perceive the world in order to affect the way they behave.

I place my life in the hands of God each day. And I trust that He knows what He's doing, even when I do not.

I trust life not because I trust the world, but because I trust the God who lives in my heart.

Donald Trump is an innocent child of God, and the democratically chosen president-elect of the United States. We must deeply bow before the first and deeply respect the second.

Anyone who isn't confused or conflicted on the topic of Israel probably isn't looking into it too deeply.

There are two distinctly, almost surreally different narratives in Israel and Palestine... and to a great extent, both are right and both are wrong. Both peoples have suffered greatly and both have legitimate grievances against the other.

Corporate totalitarianism means total control by corporate interests. If they want a war, they get a war. If they want GMOs, they get GMOs. If they want fracking, they get fracking. If they want big banks to control our monetary policy, big banks control our monetary policy.

The Republican corporatists are worse than the Democratic corporatists, but only to a degree. And Republican corporatists are at least true to their principles, however abhorrent those principles might be to some of us.

The Founders didn't mention political parties when they wrote the Constitution, and George Washington in essence warned us against them in his Farewell Address.

There's a certain je ne sais quoi that Americans have in spades - a we-can-do-anything spirit that makes so many things possible for all of us. We're rugged individualists, aspirational in nature, and we like to think for ourselves.

We tend to lack humility toward love, to patronize it rather than bow before it, to put mundane considerations before the emotional need to hold someone in our arms.

May we not succumb to thoughts of violence and revenge today, but rather to thoughts of mercy and compassion. We are to love our enemies that they might be returned to their right minds.
