In case social media horror stories of new iPhones bending in pockets (#Bendgate), ripping out people’s hair (#Hairgate/#Beardgate), and crashing after iOS 8 updates (sorry, no cute hashtag here) weren’t enough to deter Apple addicts from buying an iPhone 6 fresh off the assembly line, perhaps a warning from acclaimed astrologer Susan Miller will do the trick.
“I’m such an Apple addict, I love everything they come out with, but it’s not the right time,” Miller, founder of Astrology Zone, tells TIME. “I know that everybody wants to buy the iPhone 6, but you’ve got to wait.”
Why? Mercury is in retrograde between October 4 and 25 — and that period of cosmic slowing, when the planet appears to be traveling backwards, is notorious for misunderstandings and technological failings. “It’s not a good time to buy an electronic item,” Miller says. “Sometimes you can make the wrong decision or…

There are two emotions: Fear & Love. Love is an emotional vibration operating at a higher frequency whereas fear vibrates at a much lower frequency.
Frequency of love or fear permeates our whole body. Our whole wellbeing is effected, right down at the cellular level. Love heals, Fear destroys.
We created God which then enhances are wellbeing and increases love to the individual. However due to our evolved instinctive tribal nature, one tribe will feel threatened by another tribe’s concept of God and thus generating fear.
Conclusion: belief in God is a temporary solution for increasing love. We need a permanent solution.
“When my husband died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me-it still sometimes happens-and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again. Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous-not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance. . . . That pure chance could be so generous and so kind […] That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time […] That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful […] The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.” — Ann Druyan, interviewed by the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.
Who I am today is determined by the choices I have made yesterday. Who I become tomorrow is determined by the choices I make today, however, those choices are determined by causes: causes which will determine my choices.
Information is the key for change. Let’s help each other – to make informed subjective choices for the wellbeing of mankind!
The Church has changed through being challenged
In essence, the Church has been changed in several ways by the process of Tom Phillips challenging the Truth Claims of the Church.
1. Beliefs should no longer be considered facts
2. Priesthood Leaders not needed to represent the Lord’s Church, instead lawyers who make pronouncements on behalf of the Church.
3. One more step to having true freedom of, & from, religion
4. Tithing is voluntary and optional
5. Catalyst For Change
Beliefs Not Facts, & Lawyers Not Priesthood Leaders Speak For The Church
Many members now know of the ten recent essays which the Church Historical Department has produced to clarify certain controversial issues. (Responses To LDS.org Essays)
Issues which have become more significant as an ever-increasing number of committed members leave the Church every year on discovering the ‘truth behind the curtain’. It could be said that the…
