    The Deceased Parents Club

    in Entertainment

    To anyone who hasn’t lost their parents, here’s some news – you never get over it'


    http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2011/dec/10/parents-death-bereavement-eleni-kyriacou


    This is an excert from an artical  written for the Guardian.com  Entitled They're my parents. I miss them by: Eleni Kyriacou:Friday 9 December 2011 19.05 EST


    On a bitterly cold April morning in 1998, my father died of a heart attack. The shock of his death was like a punch to the stomach. It was the first bereavement I'd experienced up close. For weeks, a cloak of confusion, rage and disbelief descended. By contrast, my mother's death, five years later, held no shock. It arrived clearly signposted, with a predictability that was agonising: diagnosis, scan, operation, false hope, radiotherapy, hospice, morphine, death.


    At 39 I'd become an adult orphan, a member of the club that nobody wants to join but most will. One parent dying was devastating; but when my mother died it changed me for ever. I felt anchorless, as if I was no longer anyone's child. I may have looked the same but something inside me shifted.


    A friend likens being an adult orphan to being the only tree left standing in a forest. I know what she means. For me it's as if my roots have been hacked away: my parents are the reason I'm here, what held me up. They had been the one stable point during my whole life, the constant. Yes, I'm an adult and can stand alone. But there are times I still need my mother and father, times I feel very alone.

  • Priorities Instead of Goals: A Better Way To Achieve Successs

    in Entrepreneur

    Traditional goal-setting may seem "smart", but it is quite ineffective when it comes to creating long-term, sustainable (and consistent) results. Consistency and predictability of goal success comes from having a system in place, and it all starts with how to set the system up before you launch into the process.

    Join JT today as he gives you some simple, yet powerful tools for gaining clarity on your goals and establishing a reliable method for accomplishing them.

    Living Life on Automatic Pilot

    in Spirituality

    Do you thrive on routine, pattern and predictability?  If so, you may be living your life on automatic pilot. This means you are separated from choices motivated by your higher self. Tune in this week as Nancy and I talk about the importance of spontaneity and natural inclinations. Thriving on routine suggests we are strictly adhering to cultural beliefs. This plays out in our daily lives as having the right diet, car, house, meditation practice, and so on to be happy. Such belief also means we need others to fit our ideas of HOW life is supposed to be. All of this structure is to create a feeling of security and self-worth. The practice is to discover our intrinsic motives and make life choices more spontaneously. Tonight we will be discussing a life lived without forethought or prompting. Of course, this does not mean in the extreme. Rather, finding a balance between predictability and adventure. Coming from the Latin word sponte, which means voluntarily, tune in as we discuss the self that arises naturally. More importantly, the spiritual cost of suppressing it.

    AMERICAN MENTORS: Investment in America's Economic Security

    in Relationships

    ECONOMIC SECURITY is as important a part of our national security as military policy.  NATIONAL SECURITY can be described as a capacity to control domestic and foreign conditions that a given community believes necessary to enjoy its own self-determination or autonomy, prosperity and wellbeing.  ECONOMIC SECURITY or financial security is the condition of having stable income or other resources to support a standard of living now and in the foreseeable future.  Some characteristics of economic security might include continued solvency, predictability of a person’s future cash flow, employment or job security.  At YouthUSA, economic security means increasing assets and reducing liabilities where we live, learn, work and worship.  YouthUSA economic security programs qualify American youth as assets and not liabilities in their communities.  in doing so, we reduce historic threats to young American lives, build trust in American communities, and ensure security for our homeland.


    Join us 12 noon eastern, 11 am central, 9 am on the west coast for an INVESTMENT IN AMERICA'S FUTURE  on YouthUSA Radio www.YouthUSA.net.

    Choice of Law and Modification - Kevin Hunter & Jeffrey O'Brien TBFS Radio

    in Business

    Join Kevin Hunter and Jeffrey O'Brien as they discuss boilerplate terms including "Choice of Law" and "Modification of Agreement."


    A "choice of law" or "governing law" provision in a contract allows the parties to agree that a particular state's laws will be used to interpret the agreement, even if they live in (or the agreement is signed in) a different state. For example, many big coorporations choose Delaware law in their contracts' choice of law provisions, because that state's laws often favor corporations and offer some predictability when it comes to disputes. Read on to learn more about choice of law provisions in contracts. 


    The "modification of agreement" clause in a contract states that the agreement may only be modified in writing. As important as it is to have your contract in writing, it is equally important to require any modifications — additions, deletions, or changes in wording — to be in writing. You don't want a conversation or telephone call that you had with the other side to modify your written contract.

    COMMISSION INCOME? How To Create More Predictability in Your Finances

    in Finance

    Commission Income.  That phrase scares some and excites others. Do you earn commission income?  If no, why not?  If yes, are you earning it consistently enough to have created a lifestyle you love?
    The Predictable Paycheck is the reason why most people shy away from a career in sales, and why some sales people who never establish a stable income stream from their sales career eventually bail this career path and run back to find a J-O-B. In this show, I am helping people in sales OR consider it, even part-time, move toward creating a more predictable paycheck, or as I like to refer to it as - The STABLE TABLE: How to provide a predictable income when you are in sales.   Click HERE to watch a 4 part VIDEO SERIES I did on this topic.


    Strategies do exist to create a more predictable income for your family and avoid the erratic money management system defaulted to by many in sales as a result of the feast and famine income cycle.

    BELIEF & MAGIK; Why Non Believers Never, Ever See It

    in Culture

    Governance and management; necessary if kept in proportion; numbing if not. Control. It seduces us with the scent of predictability and power. We trade on reality, convincing ourselves freemasons have an ability to foresee the future. The way we look at history is less kind.  Think about the way we drop names of great men who happen to have been freemasons to give us a certain panache'.  Habit lulls us into distilling, crunching, and compressing centuries of influence and events, enough that we should all cringe at it.   Don't think for a moment this obscures the truth; understand has become opaque as a result. Conformity is such a tasty ale. Too many pearls; too much science, mixed to fit known facts. Change or deepen our understanding of masonic history and the outcomes will obvioulsy change. What separates us from our impressions of what we were?  Is it building a room for serious conversation without risk riducule?  It is titillating to talk about the past. History can minimize complication; robust comrades facing tough entrance requirements; aristocracy rubbing shoulders with commoners. It was the time before uniformity that gives us the greatest sense of mystery. What records extant leave gaps for us to speculate creating treasures for the mind pregnant with promise that membership provides a way to nuture character development.


    It is disengenuous to offer something unless we can't deliver. Unfortunately that hasn't stopped us.  So the question I ask is this;  given that reality is never as keen, as precise, as satisfying as anticipation, all things considered, redefining our beginnings both spiritual and philosophical has the the Masonic Order not lost footing?
