New Free Module Now Online – Critical Periods that Change Brains

The Identity We All Share: We are human above all! (Modules for helping people engage in self-discovery and understanding their humanness.)
Module 03 Critical Periods that Change Brains
Learn about five critical periods that are genetically launched in which the brain goes into a hyper-learning mode and absorbs massive amounts of information. At birth a baby’s neurons are disparate and unconnected, and in the first two years of life they begin connecting up extremely rapidly as they take in sensory information. As many as two million new connections, or synapses, are formed every second in an infant’s brain. By age two, a child has over one hundred trillion synapses, double the number an adult has. Today, most people know very little or nothing about them, especially the people that need to know it the most – parents, family members, teachers, law makers, judges, law enforcement officers, counselors and religious leaders, to name a few. Your critical periods shaped who you are and how you e…

Life & Power

How important is power in our world today? Just think what life would be like if you had the power to do or acquire whatever you wanted. We spend a great deal of our lives thinking about power – getting it, keeping it, losing it, seeking it and wanting it. But even though power is so important to so many, very few people really understand what power is, how it works or know how much power is unknowingly being used against them every day. Inclusive social change requires lots of power! We created the TOV Center to empower individuals to co-create change.Click Here to read complete blog.

The Little Shoes that Changed My Life!

My name is Jim Myers. It was close to the end of 1990, a few months after my first grandson was born, I was sitting in my study flipping through a magazine when the picture above appeared.  My eyes immediately locked on the soles of two little shoes -- on the feet of a dead child laying between two adults which I assumed were its parents.  
As I looked at those little shoes, I wondered if that the little child had a grandfather somewhere and if he cared as much for him as I did about my grandson. As I read the story and pondered how that could have happened to that little child, one question popped into my mind. Read the complete story at --

Wisdom of the Second Day of Creation

Wisdom of the Second Day of Creation Today the Second Day begins at sundown on Sunday and ends at sundown on Monday.
On the First Day we learned that the Hebrew word translated "create" actually means "to create by changing the shape or form of things that exists." We also learned that before the process of creation began, four things already existed: elohiym, darkness, deep waters and the space above the surface of the deep waters where elohiym hovered. On the First Dayelohiym changed darkness, now elohiym uses Its creative power to change the deep waters.
Genesis 1:6-7
And elohiym said: “Let there be a RAQIYA in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”  And elohiym made the RAQIYA, and divided the waters which were under the RAQIYA from the waters which were above the RAQIYA; and it was so.
Once again the first thing elohiym does is say what will be created next -- “Let there be a RAQIYA in the midst of the waters.” This time we also l…

The Wisdom of the First Day of Creation

Day One Today Day One begins at sundown Saturday & ends at sundown Sunday.
Genesis 1:1-2
When elohiym began changing things that existed to make the Heavens and the Earth the Earth did not exists, darkness was over the surface of deep waters and the presence of elohiym hovered over the surface of the waters.

The Hebrew word above is transliterated into English “elohiym” (pronounced EL-OH-HEEM). Download our free Hebrew-English Transliterator by clicking here.
In English translations of Jewish and Christian Scriptures elohiym has been translated God, god, gods, goddess, goddesses, angels, rulers, and judges.1 But, a study of the choices translators make often reveals the influences of their religious beliefs on the decisions of which English words to choose as translations of Hebrew and Greek words. Our goal is to let the context in which words appear reveal their meanings – contextual definitions.
In this context, elohiym is an unna…

Which god?

The “G-word” is everywhere today. People from very different religions, no religions, and atheists use it every day – as if they are all talking about the same god. Even people that self-identify with the same religion aren’t always talking about the same god. How important is it for us to know which god we are talking about?
If someone said, “Do you want food?”; would you ask “What kind of food?”
How about if your doctor called and said, “You need an operation.” Would you ask, “What kind of operation?”
Based on the impact the “G-word” has on our lives today in America, doesn’t that make knowing which is very important? But when people use the “G-word,” most people never ask, “Which god?” – not even professional reporters that work for large media corporations, newspapers and magazines!
Christianity, Judaism and Islam are monotheistic religions that teach that there is only one god -- but their memes about their “God” are very different. Jewish and Christian Scriptures contain storie…
