It's up to God now. Being I'm young, God knows I have much to do to on earth. When I converted to Christianity, It was because of a near death experience. My case was verified and one of 8 million documented cases who reported the same exact phenomenon. It forever changed my life. What I'm about to tell you (and you can call me a liar all you want.) But I know what I saw...and that's Christ and God themselves. Heaven, just like you hear about is so amazing, one can't describe in words. I didn't wanna go back! It was that moving. God told me: "I knew you could do it. I have been trying to get your attention for years. I'm proud of you. It's just not your time. I am giving you the gift of knowledge." What God meant by that was, the bible. What confirmed my case was my ability to demonstrate each and every part of the bible from front to back. It's not possible they said.. They were amazed how i can recite each and every verse and book. I never did before this, even knew anything of, or about the Bible... let alone picking one up to read. If you ever had any doubt, or your scared thinking that there's no heaven or God, let me be the first to tell you that there IS a God and there IS a Heaven.The above was written by a young Japanese women living in America (I believe she recently became a naturalized citizen). She went in for surgery in just the past week for a double kidney transplant. I know her from Facebook friendship only, but she has inspired me many times over with her bravery, perseverance and hopefulness. The updates from her boyfriend weren't good, however. At first she seemed to be recovering very slowly, but now it appears she has succumbed to her illness. He hasn't announced anything further, but she may have passed away. She knew it was a possibly, the doctors told her she had a 50% chance of dying during the surgery itself. I post her words here to anyone who might find them helpful or thought-provoking. God bless her, and may we meet someday in person in the Celestial Emerald City. One additional note. She stated in one comment that some atheists ridiculed her online and made fun of her NDE and belief in the afterlife, even though they knew how sick and close to death she was. She called them cruel, and she was right. What is it about atheists that they seem to take pleasure in trying to remove hope from people's lives? It is one thing if they believe religion is harmful to society, but to hate on a dying person and tell them, sorry, when you're dead you're dead? How sick is that?

Max and Stacy discuss that if man is what he hides, as André Malraux said, then the EU is a corporatist, monopolist loving intellectual land-grabber, for the EU hides secret trade deals. They also discuss Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan instructing his coalition not to ‘forcibly’ proceed with ratifying the TPP (another secret trade deal) until after elections this summer as voters are against it. - https://youtu.be/-dHZEjJbz0c via Shattered Garden

Where do we stand now, economically? Well, we are right back at it: trying to stimulate growth through easy money. It hasn’t worked, but it’s the only tool the Fed’s got. Meanwhile, the Fed’s policies widen the wealth gap, which feeds political extremism, forcing gridlock in Washington. It seems the world is headed toward negative real interest rates on a global scale. This is toxic. Interest rates are used to price risk, and so in the current environment, the risk-pricing mechanism is broken. That is not healthy for an economy. We are building up terrific stresses in the system, and any fault lines there will certainly harm the outlook. What makes you most nervous about the future? Debt. The idea that growth will remedy our debts is so addictive for politicians, but the citizens end up paying the price. The public sector has really stepped up as a consumer of debt. The Federal Reserve’s balance sheet is leveraged 77:1. Like I said, the absurdity, it just befuddles me. - Michael Burry, Real-Life Market Genius From The Big Short, Thinks Another Financial Crisis Is Looming Will the US Economy Collapse in 2016?

Do not be angry, but do not hesitate to cause anger in your opposition. Anger clouds and dulls the mind. It causes poor judgment. It often forces someone to make a mistake. If you feel you might be getting angry, step back and figure out how you can be the cause of anger in your enemy, instead. I've played a lot of sports in my time, and one thing I noticed is that when I got in the heads of other players, they played worse. I never found an exception to this. One does not have to be a robot, but if one cannot control one's emotions, one should recuse themselves from that moment until they are in control of themselves. People today lack discipline. - Bret Alan
