Elia Powers Four years ago, Newport Coast resident Bob Posert stepped into a two-story office building in Costa Mesa in search of clarity. A series of what he called "everyday frustrations" weighed heavily on his mind, and he needed a place to go for reflection. "I was looking for a way to get connected with what was happening in my life, as opposed to wishing things would happen," said Posert, vice president of product development for a software engineering company.

It is vital that religious organizations educate their congregants about how their faith tradition relates to the critical issues of the day. But it should be up to each individual to decide which combination of candidates, parties and legislation would best represent those values. At the Zen Center, formal talks and discussions are given periodically about war, poverty, human rights, consumerism, the environment and personal growth in ethical decision-making.

Turning 60 provides a special opportunity for spiritual growth. The milestone birthdays — whether sweet 16, of-age 21, over-the-hill 30 or a centenarian at 100 — naturally invite age-specific reflections about life, a summing up of what has been learned so far and a fine-tuning of aspirations for the future. Each age of life brings its own challenges and satisfactions. In the Hindu tradition, a child's first eating of solid food is ritualized, as is the first hair cutting and the other amazingly rapid developmental steps occurring in the first year of life.

Imagine being trapped on the top floor of a burning house. As the flames creep closer, you look outside the window and see members of your congregation gathered below. They're looking up at you and praying that you make it out alive. But you know there is no way that you will escape death. If you had only one message for them about your religion or your religious experience that you absolutely had to impart to them, what would it be in 150 words or less? While not certain that a valedictory message would be my uppermost priority at such a time, I would want to depart as I had lived: as a teacher.

On Sunday, less than five years after Hurricane Katrina battered New Orleans ? and considering that the Saints nearly moved out of town permanently not long after Katrina ? the franchise won its first Super Bowl.

Why would people care about the birthday of a man born in Nepal more than 2,500 years ago, someone who never traveled more than a few hundred miles from his home, or wrote even a single book? On April 8 every year, millions of Buddhists from all branches and denominations all over the world celebrate the birth of Gautama Siddhartha, the Buddha — which means “awakened one.” In my own tradition, the Buddha is not viewed as a God and he is not worshiped or prayed to for intervention or assistance.
