 Segment 1

Sam begins the show with quote from Universe and Abraham. Sam interpret the quote from Universe saying that the Universe wants to tell us to give without any thought of return is the best way to make yourself feel good. Then Sam talk about the quote from Abraham. World peace is having one mind one way of acting but that is not freedom, freedom is allowing one to be, act and do what feels right for them. Sam believed that accepting things is another way of making world peace. 

Segment 2

Sam came back talking about what he did during Thanksgiving week. Sam talks about he spends time with his family and he mentioned at the table the way her sister’s husband talks hurts his wife unconsciously. Sam talks about when he comforts his wife he thought about a Buddhist precept. The Buddhist precept before we speak we should ask yourself three questions, the thing we are about to say is it truthful, helpful and kind. Sam talks about if people can think these three questions before they speak it will be much better.

Segment 3

Sam came back to continue talking about the importance to think about the three questions to ask themselves before they speak. He wonders what some people are thinking when they talk about things that are not truthful, helpful or kind. Those people are self-centered and always wants people to agree with them. And those people are pushing others away from them they are hurting others and themselves at the same time. 

Segment 4

Sam came back talking about the precious time we spend with our family at the end of the year but sometime we have to deal with the way some relatives talks. Sam then give some advice to avoid arguments with them. One suggest that Sam give is to excuse yourself from the situation if you can. Another suggestion is to talk about your real feelings to let them know that what they are saying are not helpful or kind to you.
