We are living in a time of great fear, and we see around us much of that fear turning into hatred. Not only has anti-Semitism been on the rise, but all other forms of hatred and bigotry as well. The questions we must ask are, “How did this fear begin?” and “How do we get rid of it?”

What can we glean from these various episodes to help us better frame our own ways of dealing with the end-of-life and other important transitions?

We must all be mindful of keeping our envy in check, particularly in relating to close family members, co-workers and friends. We can be blinded by what I have come to label as our “inner Korah,” the part of us that allows jealousy and hurt to make us self-absorbed and prone to creating suffering.
