25 Beautifully Illustrated Thought-Provoking Questions « CHERYL & LESLIE'S MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURES Since I have embarked in to a new career after 13 years working as a Clinical Social Worker in an Intensive Care Unit, I am forced to think about things other than motorcycles. My new career, Organ Donation Coordinator in a hospital makes me question so many things in my life. It is scary to go from a job where I was unconsciously competent to a job that I am consciously incompetent. Well, that is how I feel at the moment and can only hope one day I will feel competent. In any case, the questions below, although can be considered a bit corny are really thought-provoking. We are interested to hear answers to some of the questions….please feel free to post any comments and let us all know how folks would answer these. ;-) Thanks. Posted by Alexander on Sept 8, 20 A question that makes you think is worth asking… At the cusp of a new day, week, month, or year, most of us take a little time to reflect on our lives by looking back over the past and ahead into the future. Few extra questions
15 Summer Reads Handpicked By Indie Booksellers Harriet Russell Booksellers know how important a good story is — one that reaches out, pulls you in and keeps you reading late into the warm summer night. As readers seek out recommendations for their summer travels, booksellers are scouring their shelves for the stories that shine. For some suggestions, we turn again to our go-to independent booksellers: Lucia Silva, the book buyer at Portrait of a Bookstore in Studio City, Calif; Daniel Goldin of Boswell Book Co. in Milwaukee; and Rona Brinlee of The BookMark in Neptune Beach, Fla. They've selected stories about con artists, grade-school spies, refugees and ranchers. Also: an inquiry into what makes a book a best-seller, and an exploration of why stories make us human.
What Are the Benefits of Living Your Life Purpose? Before we can enjoy the benefits of our life purpose, we need to find it. How do we find purpose in life? Many of us live, unable to find our purpose in life, for much of our lives. We are born, go to school and cram facts into our heads, marry, go to work, and then rush home from work too tired to do much of anything. We live mediocre lives without purpose, only routine. Now back to the question how do we find purpose in life? Our life purpose shows itself in down to earth ways. Another way our life purpose shows itself as Being in the right place. The above shows two ways all of us can fulfill a purpose in our lives. Now how can you enjoy the benefits of living your life purpose? What is it to live, really live? Sri Bhagavan of Oneness University in India says, "Knowing how to live is the purpose of life." So how many of us knew we would find purpose if we enjoyed our lives and lived in joy? We can still engage in our previous activities.

The Egg The Egg By: Andy Weir You were on your way home when you died. It was a car accident. And that’s when you met me. “What… what happened?” “You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. “There was a… a truck and it was skidding…” “Yup,” I said. “I… I died?” “Yup. You looked around. “More or less,” I said. “Are you god?” “Yup,” I replied. “My kids… my wife,” you said. “What about them?” “Will they be all right?” “That’s what I like to see,” I said. You looked at me with fascination. “Don’t worry,” I said. “Oh,” you said. “Neither,” I said. “Ah,” you said. “All religions are right in their own way,” I said. You followed along as we strode through the void. “Nowhere in particular,” I said. “So what’s the point, then?” “Not so!” I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. “How many times have I been reincarnated, then?” “Oh lots. “Wait, what?” “Well, I guess technically. “Sure.
NASA Debunks 2012 Apocalypse With New FAQ We all know that the world is going to end in December 2012 because a giant solar eruption is going to swallow the Earth. Or is it supposed to be the implosion of the Yellowstone Caldera? Reversal of the global poles? Apparently, yes. The 2012 Armageddon myth dates back to the Mayans. NASA reaffirms this: "Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. There is also the notion of the "Nibiru collision." There is no Nibiru. "Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. What about a giant solar eruption? NASA says that its satellites are in more danger of solar activity than our little blue orb, "Solar activity has a regular cycle, with peaks approximately every 11 years. What should people fear about the possibility of The End coming in 2012? Please, do not drink the Kool-Aid. Apocalyptic - 2012 News Feature from Dan Rowinski on Vimeo.
Over dit programma Mind-Blowing Story: “Talking to God…” I met god the other day. I know what you’re thinking. How the hell did you know it was god? Well, I’ll explain as we go along, but basically he convinced me by having all, and I do mean ALL, the answers. Every question I flung at him he batted back with a plausible and satisfactory answer. In the end, it was easier to accept that he was god than otherwise. Which is odd, because I’m still an atheist and we even agree on that! It all started on the 8.20 back from Paddington. What did he look like? Well not what you might have expected that’s for sure. ‘Anyone sitting here?’ ‘Help yourself’ I replied. Sits down, relaxes, I ignore and back to the correspondence on genetic foods entering the food chain… Train pulls out and a few minutes later he speaks. ‘Can I ask you a question?’ Fighting to restrain my left eyebrow I replied ‘Yes’ in a tone which was intended to convey that I might not mind one question, and possibly a supplementary, but I really wasn’t in the mood for a conversation. .. ‘Stottle.
How to Be Happy Anytime | zen habits Post written by Leo Babauta. My friend Barron recently asked, “If you could be anywhere right now, doing anything you want, where would you be? And what would you be doing?” And my answer was, “I’m always where I want to be, doing what I want to be doing.” I’ve notice that in the past, like many people, I was always wishing I was doing something different, thinking about what I would do in the future, making plans for my life to come, reading (with jealousy) about cool things other people were doing. It’s a fool’s game. Many of us do this, but if you get into the mindset of thinking about what you *could* be doing, you’ll never be happy doing what you actually *are* doing. Instead, I’ve adopted the mindset that whatever I’m doing right now is perfect. There’s nothing I’m ever doing that isn’t the most incredible thing on Earth. The Now Mindset, In Practice Let’s say you’re washing the dishes. Washing dishes can be as great as anything else, if you decide to see it that way.
Descartes, René: Overview&[Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy] René Descartes is often credited with being the “Father of Modern Philosophy.” This title is justified due both to his break with the traditional Scholastic-Aristotelian philosophy prevalent at his time and to his development and promotion of the new, mechanistic sciences. His fundamental break with Scholastic philosophy was twofold. First, Descartes thought that the Scholastics’ method was prone to doubt given their reliance on sensation as the source for all knowledge. Descartes attempted to address the former issue via his method of doubt. Once this conclusion is reached, Descartes can proceed to rebuild his system of previously dubious beliefs on this absolutely certain foundation. The presentation below provides an overview of Descartes’ philosophical thought as it relates to these various metaphysical, epistemological, religious, moral and scientific issues, covering the wide range of his published works and correspondence.
