Healing and 3 Routes to Healing


Three routes to healing:

1. You must let the pain visit.
2. You must allow it to teach you.
3. You must not allow it to overstay.

-Ijcoma Umebinyuo

Healing yourself will ask more of you:
more rest,
more self love,
more letting go,
more time for learning,
more space for transformation,
more honesty about how you feel,
more time developing good habits,
more courage to try new practices,
more time cultivating your inner peace,
more faith in yourself and the process.

Customer service rep saves caller having a stroke almost 900 miles away

From @globalpositivenews


Kimberly Williams was doing her routine work at the Comcast cable call center near Clinton, MS, answering a new call, when suddenly the man on the other end, Dan Magennis of Michigan, started slurring his words and then she heard a phone drop. ⁠

Kinberly quickly realized what’s going on - the man was having a stroke. When she was 14, her grandmother had the same symptoms when she had a stroke. Almost 900 miles away, Williams knew time is of the essence and called the fire department and the police right away.⁠

Thanks to her quick thinking, Dan Magennis was taken to the hospital just minutes after. There, hospital staff helped him recover and get back on his feet.⁠

“She doesn’t know me but what she did, it was phenomenal,” Magennis, 65, said.⁠

Science is magic

If a little kid ever ask you just why the sky is blue, you look at him or her right in the eye and say, "it's because of quantum effects involving Rayleigh scattering combined with a lack of violet photon receptors in out retinae'. -Phillip Plait

If you travelled at the speed of light, it would take 1 second to get to the moon, 8 minutes 20 seconds to get to the sun, and 2000 years to get out of Milky Way.
