"In All Things, Give Thanks"

During this season of Thanksgiving, many of us strive to be more grateful for all the blessings in our lives – health, home, food, family, friends, the gifts of wisdom we have received, etc. – but Master Jesus and many other spiritual luminaries have asked us to take gratitude to a bold new level, by giving thanks in all things. But is it really possible for us regular folks to be grateful when "bad" things happen? During this week's show, we'll explore the power of this profound practice and give examples of how we might make it part of our lives. I hope you can join me, tomorrow morning at 9:00AM Central time.

Blessings,

Jonas

"The Work" of Byron Katie

After almost three years off the air, I've finally returned to KRUU FM, on Sunday mornings from 9:00AM to 9:30AM. Although my show is only a half an hour long, I offer far-ranging thoughts and suggestions about how we can live happier, healthier, and more peaceful lives. Nothing dogmatic here; just sharing my own experience and what I've seen work for others. Callers are welcome to join the discussion. I throw in some cool music too.

This week's show will be a continuation of our discussion of Byron Katie's "Work," which identifies our beliefs, not our circumstances, as the cause of virtually all of our conflicts and suffering. Through a simple yet very specific process of self-inquiry, Katie's Work allows us to see more clearly the impact of our beliefs and provides the opportunity to consider alternative views that may better serve us, all in a completely safe, self-regulated, and unforced manner. I hope you will join me.

US proposes net neutrality rules

The US has proposed new rules that would require internet firms to respect the principle of "network neutrality".

The head of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said that "all web traffic should be treated equally".

The new rules are intended to prevent firms throttling bandwidth-sapping web traffic such as streaming video.
