3 Essential Truths Most People Forget

(Paul Lenda) Life is a stream of experiences that help continuously shape who we are. There are certain essential truths that we acknowledge at certain points of our lives, yet usually tuck away into the depths of our subconscious minds. We are usually preoccupied with other things and don’t allow the power of those essential truths to guide us as we navigate through life. That’s why I felt it would be a good idea to reflect on some of the essential truths of life we often forget about.

Will I Survive? A Look at the Afterlife

(Gary Lachman) What happens when we die? Human beings have asked this question probably more than any other, with “Does God exist?” and “What is the meaning of life?” coming in as close seconds. All three, of course, are intertwined, but while the reality of the deity and the solution to life’s riddle may be grasped in the here and now, what happens when we give up the ghost seems to be something we can know only by doing just that. It seems that the only way we can know for certain what happens after death is by dying. And while the attraction of that ultimate mystery is strong, the means of solving it appear, to most of us at least, somewhat less attractive.

Mother/Infant Skin-To-Skin Touch Boosts Baby’s Brain Development and Function

(Science Daily) As the world prioritizes social distancing to stop or slow down the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), a new study by researchers at Florida Atlantic University demonstrates that mother-infant touch and contact are essential for optimal neurodevelopmental regulation in early infancy. Kangaroo Care, a skin-to-skin, chest-to-chest method of caring for a baby, especially one who is premature, has been associated with promoting neurophysiological development. This method of caring emphasizes the importance of holding the naked or partially dressed baby against the bare skin of a parent, typically the mother. New research is showing that extended use of Kangaroo Care can positively benefit full-term infants and their mothers during the post-partum period.

Heart-Based Living | Heartmath Institute

(Heart Math) Heart-Based Living is only a convenient reference term which implies the practice of qualifying our thoughts, feelings and actions through our heart for more effective choices and guidance. Some people prefer the terms, Heart-Focused Living, or Heart-Centered Living. All of these terms suit the purpose – it’s just a matter of individual choice.

Scientists Claim to Have Spotted Thousands of Mushrooms on Red Planet

(Nirmal Narayanan) A study-report published in the journal Astrobiology and Space Science states that mushroom-like objects oriented towards the sky can be seen on the surface of Mars. Researchers say objects show typical behaviors of mushrooms that grow on Earth. The researchers claim that the ‘puffball-shaped’ objects could be the result of a biological process and that non-biological presence could not explain the presence of the objects on Mars.
