Canada Mental Health ‘stuck’ in Groundhog Day

The Mental Health Commission of Canada Is Stuck in Groundhog Day What am I missing here? The Mental Health Commission of Canada has just released the first of two reports on indicators showing how poorly we treat those with mental illness in Canada. I really have to ask why, as this is something we already know. In May, 2006, the Canadian Senate released its study of mental health in Canada called Out of the Shadows At Last. What went into that report was based on more than 2,000 … [Read more...]

Curiosity, Goodness for Mental Health

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." -- Albert Einstein It's no secret that curiosity makes learning more effective and enjoyable.

What is Enlightenment?, Immanuel Kant

What Is Enlightenment? Immanuel Kant Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) "Have the courage to use your own understanding," ... is therefore the motto of the enlightenment. Laziness … [Read more...]

The 888 Code, January 26th is the day of benevolence!

Once, and sometimes twice a year, we are blessed with a 9 Universal Month. In 2015, both January and October bring the “king” of numbers to life. When a month adds up to the number 9 in numerology, EVERY DAY of the month has the SAME number frequency as the Universal Date. That double magnification is happening every day in January – and I’m sure it has already given you lots of feedback. Talk of connecting with your divinity and magnificence this month!

Mercury Retrograde’s DO’s and DON’TS, Jan 21 – Feb 11

Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop, or station, and spin backward — otherwise known as retrograde. Of course, it really ISN'T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that Mercury, is in this case, going backward. In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology — so all of these areas go haywire for about three weeks, … [Read more...]
