Critics argue that when millions of people in countries like India or those in Sub-Saharan Africa are dying because of a lack of access to even basic healthcare, investing in cutting-edge technologies is a ludicrous waste of money.

What You Are You Know, Because It Is What You Strive To Be
December 18, 2014 | Consciousness | M.Forrester
There is nothing you cannot be, because you are everything and from everything. You are part of all that is. You have devised a veil which keeps you from remembering our true history. It keeps you from remembering your true origin of who you are and where you came from. The true power of humanity is so great that it was necessary to create this reality full of limitations and duality. Otherwise, it would not be a game at all. We would all realize our true power and the game would be over. So why do we persist with this illusion?

Mental Health: Suicide And Suicidal Thoughts - No One Is Immune
December 17, 2014 | MentalHealth | E.Dahl
Mental health issues are a serious problem in Canada, the United States and other western nations. In the 20th century and even in the early part of the 21st century there seems to be a stigma attached to individuals who say "I go through periods of depression. There are times when I can't even get out of bed to face the day." or "I was so stressed that I would cry and cry before I got to the office. I would have to sit in my car for 15 minutes before I got the courage to walk to the elevator." If you talk to health professionals these stories are not uncommon. And they are stories that are told not by some stranger but in confidence by your spouse, siblings, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. People who realize that something in their life is just not right and that they need to reach out and ask for help - help to put their life back into balance before it's too late!
