Overcoming the constant pursuit of fulfilment

A while ago I took a course in happiness. The author of the course commented that we tend to pursue things that bring us pleasure, and avoid pain. I am not talking about naked, bodily pleasure necessarily, but about things that bring joy, contentment, fulfilment etcetra. It's the latter group of ple...

Re: I desperately need advice!

Forgive me, but this is long. So here goes.. Long? Just read some of my posts and then you'll redefine your definition of long!!! I've been thinking about either resigning from the church or just stay being inactive. If I resign I know I'll sadden my family and many other people and in some ways I'...

Re: Everything's on the table now

I think we can all agree that the church leadership has been operating from a different mindset then perhaps a "warts and all" historian would use. They operate more like lawyers, PR people, or CEOs. That is reasonable and understandable without questioning their moral compass. I question the moral...

Re: Sealing waiting period policy discontinued

As one of the angry negative people earlier, what is good about this is that my TBM daughter volunteered that she would have had a civil wedding first if she had've had the choice. In the past, we couldn't talk about that because it would have been perceived as being negative on church policy. Now t...

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

I believe that a job applicant showing that they have some training and are able to start what they finish would be a benefit on many resumes (particularly for the RM demographic - young people without much job experience). There are many industry certificates that can be helpful even if not requir...

Re: Everything's on the table now

dande48, "shady" carries an obvious connotation of dishonesty. That is my only objection to using it in a case like this. I truly believe the leadership is not being dishonest. In spite of my own issues over the years with the church, I've never believed the church leaders to be dishonest or shady....

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

How does the certificate help them -- does it waive certain entrance requirements to BYU-I or other colleges?

Re: Everything's on the table now

I forgot to post this from last week. I was ruminating on the reasons why, as a progressive who's long been clamoring for changes like the recent sealing policy change, why is it that I'm suddenly freshly bothered when the changes occur. Hawk -- this is exactly what I was going through in the One Y...

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

Do they get some kind of a terminal credential for the Pathways program? A certificate for example? Or are they simply courses on a transcript? I want to add about the online/onsite thing. Online is powerful. Less overhead in brick and mortar, security, maintenance, flexibility in completing the cou...

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

I guess I don't get the purpose of the Pathway program other than to let people who are otherwise not qualified enter BYU-I. The courses seem pretty light. What is meant by "professional skills"? For me, I find students need to be prepared in math and writing clearly at a minimum, plus many need upg...
