Hi everyone and welcome new September Basic practitioners:
Last month it was fall with chilly days and falling leaves here in Northern California, and this fall it's summer with temperatures hitting over the 90's. I wonder if Mother Nature is going into menopause with her weird cycles. I'm sure she'll figure it out.
Talking about cycles, I was reading a post, I think on Facebook, about the top five regrets of those who are dying. Not many people want to talk about death and dying. I actually find it fascinating, having taken courses many years ago in these subjects as well as having been a Hospice volunteer, experiencing a great deal of family and friend loss through death, and my own near-death experiences.
Discussing death is being open to all cycles of life and transition. Have you ever been to a conscious home dying vigil? It's sacred and amazing. The energy feels very close to a conscious home birth. There is a peace and surrendering that occurs, an energy of present momentum and timely release. How can we help, in making this process of transition out of our body clothes (as my niece once described it soon after her death), a spiritually profound and enlightening experience for others, or when our time comes, for ourselves? I would go back to looking at regrets.
When I took a Death and Dying course back in the '70's, my professor asked the class to make a list of the 10 things that we wanted to do in our lifes. We were than asked to imagine that we only had 7 days to live, and which ones would we choose to do. There was a grand scamble to decide what could be done if the physical energy was there and then a realization of all that would not happen. He then looked at us and said, "Why are you waiting to do what your heart desires? What is stopping you from doing your life now? Every day is precious. It could be your last breath. Do you want to die with regrets?" I don't think it really sunk in fully just because I was in my early 20's. Why... aren't we all immortal at that age?! But somewhere deep down, I did hold all that as a possibility of something to contemplate on, a truth about how to live our lives; and for no less reason than to be able to share this now because the questions are worthy to be dug on to live a fulfilling life.
The professor then asked us to write a list of the 10 most important people in our lives. I made my list, and for some reason I was inclined to write God at the top of my list figuring it was a good way to keep my priorities straight. He then made up a story, and we were to imagine that we were the captain of our own ship and a terrible storm came, the power source went completely dead, we were hundreds of miles from shore, the life boats had malfunctioned, and the only way to lengthen the time the ship could be kept afloat was to release one person each hour. We were to number what order those people had to be released. I watched as each name of my dear ones got crossed off glad that it was only in imagination, but sad to think that such a possibility could exist.
When I realized that there was no reason to cross off God, a big smile grew on my face, because IT would be with me no matter what happened. I sat there with a sense of satisfaction that the professor's story could not possibly include a cross off of God because that was impossible. I would always have something with me that was eternal.
The professor waited as we crossed off one name after the other in the order that we chose, and then asked us who was the last person to let go. I raised my hand after several students had responded, "I didn't have to let God go because God always be there anyways. " It was a surprise to the professor that someone included a spiritual component to his game... he was actually hoping someone would "get it". I was asked if I had known this game before. I had to laugh. "Yes and no" was my answer..."I had never played it consciously, but I just knew that I needed to keep God as my #1 in any situation."
If you were told you were going to die in a week, what would your priorities be and what has been your heart's desire that you haven't created? Your life doesn't have to end with "The top 5 regrets."
1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I didn't work so hard.
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Change them now, clear the beliefs associated with them, step into your life.
Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose to know your happiness and joy, and then live it!
Many blessings to all for the courage to life our lives to the fullest,

HBO documentary on Life after Death
This documentary presents many rich and inspiring stories, including interviews with both skeptics and believers about the afterlife. The preponderance of evidence presented, however, is pretty convincing that there is something quite amazing going on in the non-material world of life after death.

Nine children raised by animals
There is truth in the reality of feral children who are often hampered with cognitive and behavioral disabilities. Occasionally their stories can also be a testament to the human will to survive, and of the tender maternal instinct of other animals. http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/pets-animals/photos/9-children-who-were-raised-by-animals/from-myth-to-reality
Frankenfood cloned beef Buying and eating beef in the US and UK right now could be from cow clones raised from the dead carcasses of other cows whose DNA was harvested for cloning. The beef industry knows that people don't really have much of a clue where their beef comes from -- and they don't want to know! So even if beef comes from cloned animals raised from the harvested DNA of dead cow carcasses, the average consumer remains clueless. http://www.naturalnews.com/029487_cloned_beef_DNA.html
Most "All Natural" Ben & Jerry's Flavors Have Unnatural Ingredients
At least 48 out of 53 flavors of Ben & Jerry’s “All Natural” ice cream and frozen yogurt contain alkalized cocoa, corn syrup, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, or other ingredients that either don’t exist in nature or that have been chemically modified. Calling products with unnatural ingredients “natural” is a false and misleading use of the term, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Today, CSPI urged Ben and Jerry’s to drop the claim or else the nonprofit watchdog group will take its concerns to the Food and Drug Administration and state attorneys general.

Cars hacked through wireless tire sensors
The tire pressure monitors built into modern cars have been shown to be insecure by researchers from Rutgers University and the University of South Carolina. The wireless sensors, compulsory in new automobiles in the US since 2008, can be used to track vehicles or feed bad data to the electronic control units (ECU), causing them to malfunction. Earlier in the year, researchers from the University of Washington and University of California San Diego showed that the ECUs could be hacked, giving attackers the ability to be both annoying, by enabling wipers or honking the horn, and dangerous, by disabling the brakes or jamming the accelerator.
