Life After Death
Everything you own is perishable. Your car, temporary. Your home, temporary. Your savings account, temporary. I have been reading studies of Near Death Experiences and Outer Body Experiences, particularly studies focusing on patients congenitally blind from birth. There is a special case of a woman, blind from birth, having detailed visual perception during surgery when her heart stopped. This was the first time she had the ability to see anything. The first time she was able to see herself, while she was clinically dead. She saw what most patients report seeing after a Near Death Experience, and a welcoming light. One day, her body will perish, and she will see again. Everything is temporary.

Inspiration as junk food…

"Everyone is aware that the most popular approaches to this undertaking are inspirational ones–Wayne Dyer, Eckhardt Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, John Bradshaw to name a few. In these approaches, the recipient listens to a colorful speech or reads a book and feels his or her outlook on life has really changed. Now I am sure that these speakers help people and say many true and profound things. But largely this is just a transference cure through identification with someone who acts out the image of ‘having it really together.’ And the image of having it really together is put across with a flow of truisms.”
