What We Can’t Explain at the End of Life: Who and What You See Before You Die…

By David Kessler, O Magazine


Throughout my years of working with the dying and the bereaved, I have noticed commonly shared experiences that remain beyond our ability to explain and fully understand. The first are visions. As the dying see less of this world, some people appear to begin looking into the world to come. It’s not unusual for the dying to have visions, often of someone who has already passed on. Your loved one may tell you that his deceased father visited him last night, or your loved one might speak to his mom as if she were there in the room at that time.

10 Thoughts On Mindful Living…


1. It’s important to occasionally go out on a limb-especially if you expect to get the best fruit.

2. Walt Whitman may have said it best: “If anything is sacred, the human body is sacred.”

3. Think about the places or environments that bring out the best in you. Now figure out a way to visit them more often

4. Dwelling on small joys is more rewarding than obsessing over little annoyances.

5. File under clichéd-but-true: The quirky things that make you “you”-even the so-called flaws-may turn out to be assets.

The Soul’s Roots…


From “Where Does Your Soul Live?’ by Amy Shearn, O Magazine

I was chatting with my cab driver on the way to the airport the other day and asked how he liked the neighborhood where we both live. He acknowledged that it was “okay,” and that he enjoyed the large Bangladeshi community. But of course he would rather be back home in Bangladesh, he said, turning around to give me a meaningful look. “Your soul is always at home, you know.” It wasn’t a question.
“Yep!” I said. “It sure is!” I didn’t want to say anything else because I liked it better when he was actually watching where he was driving. But in a few minutes, I was going to catch a flight “home,” the nice Midwestern suburb where I grew up, a place I feel a friendly affection for, but not exactly where I feel that my soul languishes when I’m not visiting it. It seems to me that “home” is where you feel understood; some people just have to travel to find it.

By Martha Beck
O, The Oprah Magazine


Of course you can feel wretched about wrinkles, jowls, thinning hair—all the slings and arrows of time and mortality. You can try to fight back—giving new meaning to the words in vain. Or you can rise—serenely, even happily—above i

Killing the Internet


Why Kill the Internet?

Written by Joshua Millburne

Earlier this year I made the conscious decision to remove all internet service from my apartment. It ended up being the best decision I ever made with respect to productivity.

Why Kill the Internet?

Why did I get rid of the internet at home?

Well, there is one primary reason: I was not content with my productivity. I felt I could do more meaningful things than spend time on the internet—meaningful things like write, exercise, contribute to others, establish connections with new people, and strengthen existing relationships.
