a much unintended odysseyWe in mental health might have our own needs for a personal relationship with the image of the end of our life. The desire for it all to end is valiant, and shows a profound style of character many others would not and cannot stand to hold. Such a need is responsible for much of the world’s most revered literature and intellectual achievement. But the seriously proposed act for doing such is Not Necessary. An ornate Idealism for one’s end, from a carefully formed meditation on which, is prizeworthy in its own right. And furthermore, one’s ordeals with loneliness, depression, and symptom brought by fear, can bring the insights and knowledge of near-death experience (NDE) into one’s grasp, just as easily.More Like This

South Africa just allowed al-Bashir to fly out of the country, in violation of the court order. It's a sad day for the families of almost a half million victims of mass murder, and for international justice.Let’s keep signing the petition to show the South African government what the world thinks of their decision, and then let’s take this fight wherever al-Bashir goes next -- until he is finally arrested.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir oversaw it all and is one of the world's most wanted men, charged with a horrific genocide. But for 6 years no one has succeeded in locking him up. Now is our chance --he’s in South Africa and a court has ordered

devour your egoBriefly before my 15th birthday I had the certain turn of thought, revealing to me I didn’t care about living. I would then figure I’d pursue my completion of school, work history as yet and so on, by just any course of action seeming natural. Any urge to push, any need to get with the program especially hard, were vaporizing before my eyes. I shrugged off most all inclination to perfect my developing manly objective.

“One of the first signs of the beginning of understanding is the wish to die. This life appears unbearable, another unattainable.
