What you need in your bug out bag - a comprehensive look. What should be in your bug out bag? A bug out bag is critical but what do you put in it? When considering disaster preparedness, keep in mind that what survival gear and emergency supplies you add to your bug out bag and then pack for your survival kit can mean the difference between life and death, or at least affect your level of comfort if SHTF and you had to get outta dodge.

Keep this in mind though – you can’t carry as much as you think you can if you haven’t been out there actually carrying it. This information that I’m gonna give you isn’t a list of all the things you need to have – it’s a list of things you should consider. Just to give you an idea, most of the time, this is what I keep in my bug out bag. What do other people say you should put on your bug out bag list?

The outgoing, charismatic and handsome Hans Scholl started his young life following the Nazi party in the increasingly unstable German nation of the 1930s.

Full of hope and excitement, Scholl believed in the unquestioned authority of the Nazi party. By the age of 18, Scholl’s eyes were opened to the inhumane and unjust politics of the party, and their hidden agenda. Scholl then took action to lead a group that disseminated literature challenging the Nazi dictatorship. Hans Fritz Scholl was born the second of Magdalena’s six children on the 22nd of September, 1918. His father, Robert Scholl was mayor of a middle class town in northern Germany and was a major influence on all of his children’s political thoughts. At the age of 12, Hans eagerly participated in political youth groups mandated by the military dictatorship. “We want to try and show them that everyone is in a position to contribute to the overthrow of the system. Hans soon became a leader of the Hitler Youth. Reality Game Solution. You ended on the word "God. " Are you amazed? Why should this work? Consider my next question carefully.

Your soul may depend on it. Does your answer prove that God exists and that the Bible is a reflection of ultimate reality? Before attributing the "God" outcome to some cute, mathematical quirk or coincidence, consider that no one has yet to find this effect with any other lines of the King James Bible. I discuss this potent puzzle in my book Wonders of Numbers, where I also trace the history of this puzzle and give further analysis. Some scholarly and mystical commentary on this Reality Game appears here. Further work on God puzzles is described in my book The Paradox of God and the Science of Omniscience. Other reality puzzles are presented in my Neoreality science-fiction series. You may contact me if you believe you have a theory as to why we find this "Genesis Effect," or if you have any comments about this effect.

Return to Reality Carnival. ‘You’re not the boss of the world’: Regular Iranians speak directly to America. CNN traveled to Tehran and asked locals what they thought of the United States. (YouTube) CNN went to Tehran this week, to coincide with the new Iranian government's big push for rapprochement with the United States. To get a sense of how regular Iranians feel about America, the network set up a camera and microphone downtown and invited those who walked past to share their thoughts on the country that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei sometimes refers to as the "Great Satan.

" Their responses offer an interesting glimpse into how the United States is perceived in Iran. They tended to be pretty positive, with some big caveats. "You're not the boss of the world," one woman says to the camera. Polling inside Iran is, for obvious reasons, rare. "We never, ever started a war," one woman points out, decrying U.S. concerns about Iran's nuclear program. Of course, this video is far from a statistically rigorous survey of Iranian public opinion.

Netflix reveals something about your own behavior you should have noticed by now, something which keeps getting between you and the things you want to accomplish.

If you have Netflix, especially if you stream it to your TV, you tend to gradually accumulate a cache of hundreds of films you think you’ll watch one day. This is a bigger deal than you think. Take a look at your queue. Why are there so damn many documentaries and dramatic epics collecting virtual dust in there? Psychologists actually know the answer to this question, to why you keep adding movies you will never watch to your growing collection of future rentals, and it is the same reason you believe you will eventually do what’s best for yourself in all the other parts of your life, but rarely do.

Aldous Huxley, Doors of Perception excerpt. Beetle in a Box. Three Techniques for Quieting Your Mind. Three Techniques for Quieting Your Mind Courtesy of Andrea A mere week ago, I was telling a client that I thought it was impossible to completely stop ourselves from thinking. I subsequently received some guidance that actually had me prove myself completely wrong!

In the past week, my mind has quieted down remarkably during meditation, to the point of true quiet and emptiness. Naturally, I then get really excited about my states of emptiness, leading to attachment … and new thoughts! Here are three of my newly discovered techniques for creating a quiet, peaceful, empty mind: 1. This technique came up in one of my coaching sessions. Our breathing cycle and the flow of our thoughts are closely linked. As we focus on those tiny pauses between our in- and out-breaths, we find that our mind quiets down at those points in our breathing. Without holding or interrupting your breath, begin extending those brief silences in your thoughts. 2. 3. Blessings, Andrea. Letting Go of Attachment, from A to Zen | zen habits. “Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.”

~Dalai Lama Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha. If there’s one thing we all have in common it’s that we want to feel happy; and on the other side of that coin, we want to avoid hurting. Yet we consistently put ourselves in situations that set us up for pain. We pin our happiness to people, circumstances, and things and hold onto them for dear life. We stress about the possibility of losing them when something seems amiss. We attach to feelings as if they define us, and ironically, not just positive ones. In trying to hold on to what’s familiar, we limit our ability to experience joy in the present.

When you stop trying to grasp, own, and control the world around you, you give it the freedom to fulfill you without the power to destroy you. The best approach is to start simple, at the beginning, and work your way to Zen. Xie Xie. Super Human Power, Dynamo Jack. The following is an actual question given on a University of Washingto...

Meditation. Brain. Kensho. Psychology. Metaphysics. The Art of Giving Up - DYSKE.COM. One winter night, one of the few Japanese friends I had in my early 20s was playing a guitar at his company Christmas party. He was an architect and was about 10 years older than I was. Before he decided to study architecture, he was making a living as a guitarist in Japan.

This was not the first time I heard him play, but I was still stunned by how good he was. After his performance, I told him that it was a shame that he was no longer pursuing his musical career. He then shared with me his recent realization that life is a process of giving up. Now, I not only understand it, but also believe it myself. “Giving up,” in this sense, isn’t the same as quitting. The big question is: Why do we develop attachments at all? This leads me to believe that there is an evolutionary reason for our tendencies to develop attachments. Zen Buddhism is a process of detachment. . ©2006 Dyske Suematsu, All Rights Reserved. I'm a million different people from one day to the. The Things We Already Know. We know the answers to many of the questions we ask ourselves, whether we admit it or not. We deny the answers for many reasons. They make us uncomfortable. They require action.

They eliminate excuses. They challenge our belief systems and our sense of convenience. Most of us know that: If you want to get more writing done, you should write more. The only way to write a book is to write the book. If you want to know anything, question everything. If you want to feel better, do the things that will make you feel better.

If you want to stand out, don’t do what everyone else is doing. If you want to be stronger, then do things that will make you strong. If you want to be patient, practice patience. If you want people to get to know you better, you need to make sure that you’re worth knowing. If you want friends, be friendly. If you want to press a heavier kettlebell, put down the baby one. If you want to watch less TV, turn off the TV. If you want to be trusted, don’t lie. Josh ShareThis. Humans Can Only Walk In Circles and We Don't Know Why. Books. Test Your Human Thought Patterns. How to Be Alone. I once knew a man who hated to be alone. It panicked him to the point where he sought to fill all of his waking hours with people. On the streets, at the bus stop, in restaurants, if he was unaccompanied he would soon find someone to talk to.

I don’t judge him for his needs but as an introvert — someone who who requires being alone to re-energize — his constant seeking of the company of others made me feel claustrophobic. But clearly my friend wasn’t alone. In fact, the Experience Project has a group called “I Hate to Be Alone.” Anyway, I digress. I recently found a little gem of a video on YouTube called How to Be Alone by filmaker Andrea Dorfman and poet/singer/songwriter Tanya Davis.

I have to say, however, after extolling the virtues of solitude, that I’ve never HAD to be alone much in my life and the few I times I did (like when I changed schools in grade 12 and had no friends for three months) seemed cruel. Recent Kerry Slavens Articles: Post #1260672. The world is meaningless, there is no God or gods, there are no morals, the universe is not moving inexorably towards any higher purpose. All meaning is man-made, so make your own, and make it well. Do not treat life as a way to pass the time until you die. Do not try to "find yourself", you must make yourself. Choose what you want to find meaningful and live, create, love, hate, cry, destroy, fight and die for it. Do not let your life and your values and you actions slip easily into any mold, other that that which you create for yourself, and say with conviction, "This is who I make myself".

Do not give in to hope. The world may be empty of meaning, but it is a blank canvas on which to paint meanings of your own. Excerpt: Isolation. “Enthralling. Astonishing.
