Dec 05 Today we discuss DREAMS and inevitably, human CONSCIOUSNESS, whatever that might be. So WHO is the dreamer anyway, and are dreams useful or useless? Can your dream life be directed and well, should it be? Lucid Dreamers seem to bridge the gap and able to both direct vivid dream events AND come back with elaborate details of their dream experiences -- would you like to do that? And then there was the Buddha, who simply said that he was "Always awake!"
Dec 12 'Tis the season to be spending, tra-la-la-la-la-lahhhh! We enjoy all the perks and gadgets and credit card DEBT is so easy! Why we may get to DEFER any payments for a YEAR or two, whoopie!! Okay, consider the DOWN side having a huge debt, either you personally OR your company or your government? High risk interest rates, bankruptcy, and back when Debtor's Prison! So who WINS in this game with the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and credit lines from the FED? Yes, it gets complicated.
Dec 19 Remember Rudolph, whose RED NOSE caused ridicule and exclusion from 'reindeer games'? Today we review the legalities, social norms and experiences of people with sexual orientations (LGBTQ and more !) that well, may stand out like Rudolph's red nose (WHICH as far as we know, was NOT Rudolph's choice). How have religions SPOKEN about such issues, and consider: Should anyone be stoned, and if so, by whom? What is happening on the international scene?
Dec 26 NO S&P today, finishing off Santa's BOURBON!
