Getting to Know Each Other – with Modern Technology – by Heidi Hornlein

Technology is advancing quickly, solving many problems, creating new ones - and allowing us humans to get to know each other across our national and even continental borders. After Skype and Google Hangouts there is a new technology available which has the potential to make friends between complete strangers by direct interaction. It is ancient wisdom that fear is nurtured by ignorance, by telling ourselves stories about people and things which lack a reality check.

The Gift of Death – The Journey from Fear to Acceptance by Heidi Hornlein

I was guest in the first episode of a HOA Show addressing a topic which ranks very high on the TABU list: DEATH +Myste Lyn and +Patty Burgess Brecht are committed to bring death and dying out of the tabu zone and to enable us who - sooner or later - all come into contact with this experience in life to become calm and able to talk about it, as well as get familiar with what it really is - as opposed of assumptions created by fear and denial.  I was grateful for the opportunity to speak about the first part of my journey from Fear of Death to assisting my father who died of cancer and of establishing an unexpected and amazing relationship with him on his death bed.

And more often than not these words are only lip service – not that people don't want to be loving and full of compassion, they might have the very honest intention – the thing is that “normal” people just don’t know how to do it. “How to love, really love, is a skill which needs to be learned. It is not just a volatile emotional highlight as many of us still think, it is much more than that! It begins with self-love, self-acceptance by deep self-knowledge and connection to who we really are – not necessarily in the “normal” spiritual sense, but who you really are as a person in this earthly life. Our guest in this show of [...]
