Death, The Grim Reaper And ‘You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger’ – Woody Allen

US film-maker Woody Allen's comments about his 2010 movie 'You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger' and his relationship with death.

Enjoy his well-known gentle cynicism:

"My relationship with death remains the same. I am strongly against it."

 

(Woody Allen)

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is an English-language Spanish–American co-production comedy-drama film written and directed by Woody Allen. It features Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Gemma Jones, Freida Pinto, Lucy Punch, Naomi Watts, Roger Ashton-Griffiths and Pauline Collins. The film is a mix of love, sex and treachery.

And of course it was also Allen who said:

"I am not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it happens."

 

(Woody Allen)

In other news on death, did you know that dying
is not allowed everywhere…?
Dying right here is strictly prohibited!
   

Lemon Sharks: Willy Volk Shot Some Spectacular Photos

Photographer Willy Volk from Florida presents us these amazing photos of lemon sharks.

 

Lemon sharks (c) Willy Volk

Willy Volk captured this shot in the Bahamas. Theses sharks are called 'lemon sharks' and despite their dangerous look, lemon sharks are actually very docile creatures and swim among divers for hours without even a sideways glance. in the Bahamas. The shark in the foreground was coming by to check things out, and the shark in the background must've wanted his portrait taken, too.

Lemon sharks have powerful jaws and several rows of triangular, curved teeth. Lemon sharks use these long, thin, extremely sharp teeth to hold and catch slippery fish, which are the main diet of these wonderful sharks.

Willy Volk: "Other than that, they're really nice fish…"

Christmas Present Appearance (By Jeff Foster)

Santa's Sleigh - Christmas (Sxc.hu)

Xmas present appearance

…Christmas arises in a great open spaciousness in which everything is allowed:
the joy, the pain, the frustration, the whole damn mess
that is this strange and beautiful thing we call life.

All things arise, stay for a while, and pass,
but what is beyond all of this is the simple and obvious presence
that is this moment, and this, and this.

Present sights, present sounds, present smells, present ideas of "me and my life",
or "me and my xmas presents".

That's it – and to think we spent a lifetime searching for something more!
Just this present appearance, which includes everything,
so that it's not really a "present appearance" at all,
for this suggests that there may be
things outside of this present appearance.

Well, that's fine… language can never touch THIS…

And I've just realised the enormous pun potential in the phrase "present appearance"!
(get it… Xmas present appearance…!)

Anyway……Merry Xmas!!!


Jeff Foster

Jeff Foster studied Astrophysics at Cambridge University. After a long period of depression and illness, Jeff began a journey of seeking enlightenment to relieve his suffering; he started an intensive spiritual quest for spiritual liberation.

When he finally discovered the non-dual nature of everything his frantic search came to an end. In the clarity of his discovery, life turned into what it always was: an open, loving, spontaneous and intimate eternity in the here and now.

He believes that the truth – that which is present and alive – is absolutely free and cannot be captured by any religion, ideology, philosophy, belief system or person. Jeff presently conducts meetings and retreats in the UK and around the world as well as one-to-one sessions.

Santa Seems So Jolly – But He Could Be Satan Himself

Really? Santa Claus is related to Satan?

This is not as far-fetched as it might sound. See what American philosopher, author and futurist Robert Anton Wilson said about the subject:

"There’s the Lilith, the female Devil, and buried in Judaism there’s the Shekinah, the female aspect of God. I’m more interested in the way that the Devil infiltrated Christianity disguised as Santa Claus. Very few people realize the archetypes are the same.

It’s the old pagan fertility god. Satan is the caricature that the Christian church created, but the fertility god came back as Santa, and he wears the same red suit as the Devil. The name Satan and Santa are made up of the same letters; you just move one and you’ve changed Santa into Satan."

And what did Victor Borge, Danish born American comedian and pianist think about Santa Claus?

"Santa Claus has the right idea: visit people once a year."

 

(Victor Borge)

"Why is Santa so Jolly?" by George Carlin.

A quite revealing political quote on Santa by Henry Louis Mencken (the American humorous Journalist and Critic of American life who influenced US fiction through the 20s; 1880-1956):

"God is a Republican, and Santa Claus is a Democrat."

 

(Henry Louis Mencken)

So should we fear good old jolly Santa? 

Probably not; and note that people who are afraid of Santa Claus are called Claustrophobic…

Christmas Event Organizer (CEO) Dr. J. Christus Von Bethlehem’s Weihnachts-Information

'Buddy Christ' by Renonevada.Dr. J. Christus von Bethlehem, CEO (Christmas Event Organizer) hat eine Weihnachts-Botschaft für uns:

Also Leute, ich bin jetzt im Urlaub. Aller Vorausicht nach bin ich bis Weihnachten wieder da, aber die Vorbereitungen darauf sollten natürlich jetzt schon starten.

Status: Wie Weihnachten letztes Jahr im Internet gezeigt hat, heißt Weihnachten nicht mehr Weihnachten, sondern X-mas, also muss der Weihnachtsmann entsprechend auch ab jetzt X-man heißen! Da X-mas quasi schon vor der Tür steht, ist es spätestens seit Oktober höchste Zeit, mit der Weihnachtsvorbereitung zu beginnen.
Verzeihung, seit Oktober ist es höchste Zeit, mit dem Weihnachts-roll-out zu starten und die Christmas-Mailing-Aktion just in time vorzubereiten.

Hinweis: Die Kick-Off-Veranstaltung (früher 1. Advent) für die diesjährige SANCROS (Santa Claus Road Show) findet bereits am 27. November statt. Daher wurde das offizielle come-together des Organizing Commitees unter Vorsitz des CIO (Christmas Illumination Officer) abgehalten.

Erstmals haben wir ein Projekt-Status-Meeting vorgeschaltet, bei dem eine in Workshops entwickelte to-do-Liste und einheitliche Job Descriptions erstellt wurden. Dadurch sollen klare Verantwortungsbereiche, eine powervolle Performance des Kundenevents und optimierte Geschenk-Allocations geschaffen werden, was wiederum den Service-Level erhöht und außerdem hilft, X-mas als Brandname global zu implementieren.

Samichlaus HirscheDieses Meeting diente zugleich dazu, mit dem Co-Head des Global Christmas Markets (früher Knecht Ruprecht) die Ablauforganisation abzustimmen, die Geschenk-Distribution an die zuständigen private-Schenking-Center sicherzustellen und die Zielgruppen klar zu definieren. Erstmals sollen auch sog. Geschenk-Units über das Internet angeboten werden.

Die Service Provider (Engel, Elfen und Rentiere) wurden bereits via conference call virtuell informiert und die core-competence vergeben. Ein Bündel von Incentives und ein separates Team-Building-Event an geeigneter location sollen den Motivationslevel erhöhen und gleichzeitig helfen, eine einheitliche corporate culture samt identity zu entwickeln.

Der Vorschlag, jedem Engel einen coach zur Seite zu stellen, wurde aus Budgetgründen zunächst gecancelled. Stattdessen wurde auf einer zusätzlichen Client Management Conference beschlossen, in einem testmarket als Pilotprojekt eine Hotline für kurzfristige Weihnachtswünsche einzurichten, um den added value für die Beschenkten zu erhöhen.Häschen und St. Nikolaus: Auf der Couch mit Psychiater-Samichlaus.

Durch ein ausgeklügeltes Management Information System (MIST) ist auch benchmark-orientiertes Controlling für jedes private-Schenking-Center möglich.

Nachdem ein neues Literaturkonzept und das layout-Format von externen Consultants (Osterhasen Associates) definiert wurde, konnte auch schon das diesjährige Goldene Buch (Golden Book Release V2.22.113.1) erstellt werden. Es erscheint als Flyer, ergänzt um ein Leaflet und einen Newsletter für das laufende updating. Hochauflagige lowcost-giveaways dienen zudem als teaser und flankierende Marketingmaßnahmen. Ferner wurde durch intensives brainstorming ein Konsens über das Mission Statement gefunden.

Es lautet: "Let's keep the candles burning" und ersetzt das bisherige "Frohe Weihnachten".

X-man hatte zwar anfangs Bedenken angesichts des corporate redesigns. Er akzeptierte aber letztlich den progressiven Consulting-Ansatz, auch im Hinblick auf das Sharholder-value, und würdigte das Know-how seiner Investor-Relation-Manager.


In diesem Sinne wünschen wir: Schönen Advent an alle ultrafeel.tv fans!

Tron Bike Concept by Miguel Cotto

Miguel Cotto's Tron BikeMiguel Cotto designed this cool 'Tron'-like concept bike.

Designer Miguel Cotto has created the bike of the future with this sleek and robotic design, reminding the lightcycles of the movie Tron. The center chassis structure looks somewhat similar to a Harley Davidson whereas the wheel hubs are giant roller bearings.

 

 

Tron concept bike by Miguel Cotto.

Remember the movie Tron?

Tron is a 1982 American science fiction film by Walt Disney Pictures, written and directed by Steven Lisberger. It stars Jeff Bridges, Cindy Morgan, Bruce Boxleitner, Dan Shor and David Warner. Tron was one of the first films from a major studio to use computer graphics extensively. Tron is famous for its distinctive visual style with stunning 3D graphics in a blazingly colorful, geometrically intense cyberspace landscape.

Tron was also one of the first harbingers of what the coming 3D Internet might look like.

 

Lighcycles from the movie Tron.Miguel Cotto's concept bike reminds of the 'Light Cycles'.

Light cycles are fictional vehicles designed by Syd Mead for the simulated world of the Tron universe. (Syd Mead is the industrial designer who also created futuristic vehicle designs in science-fiction films such as Aliens and Blade Runner.)

 

Enjoy the original Tron lightbike scene.

These two-wheeled vehicles resemble motorcycles and leave walls of colored light behin them. Players are in constant motion on a battle playfield, creating a wall of colored light behind them as they ride. If players hit a wall, they are out of the game – meaning their craft explodes and they die. The last surviving player in the game wins.

How To Make The Right Yes-Or-No Decision Using Your Intuition (By Martin Zoller)

Signs in different directionsHow to make the right decisions?

Every day, we are forced to make decisions. Some are simple, like whether or not to add milk to our coffee, what to wear to work, what plans do make for the evening, etc.

However, the stakes rise when we're considering bigger decisions like, which investments to proceed with, whom to marry or which battles to fight. Sometimes decisions are clear and other times, they require a lot of time for us to consider our options, to think about the outcomes and weigh whether or not we can live with the consequences.

While our decisions are personal and take our own time to sort out, however, for me, I find that my decisions not only affect me but may also have an impact on my clients. Without exaggerating, I can say that I take more time making decisions for others than for myself. After all, it is part of my job, to help give information to help people make decisions but also give them the latitude to make their own decisions.

Often times, clients ask me to make decisions for them. But my job is really to analyze future possibilities. It’s like using a GPS in a car. The GPS shows you which direction to take but in the end, it’s the driver’s decision if he wants to drive straight through or stop for a rest; if he wants to take major roads or drive through smaller towns at a slower pace. I give the options but the client has to make the final decision.

"Are you sure?" Yes or NoIn my book HELLSICHTIG, I outline several meditations to open people's intuition; one of the techniques helps to make the right “YES or NO” decision. I call this meditation “The Inner Oracle.”

Choose two colors, one to represent 'yes' and the other to represent 'no.' Next choose a “yes or no” decision you have to make. Sit down and relax. Close your eyes and do a meditation to calm down your mind. Bring your brain in a neutral and quiet state. Now connect to your intuition by connecting to the inner silence. Once you feel completely calm, you visualize a big white wall in front of your inner eyes. Repeat the question two or three times in your mind, without speaking it out loud.

When done with this focus on the white wall and ask your intuitive self if the answer is YES or NO. Don't question what appears before you and if no color appears, relax and try it again. If you have the answer, you can stop the meditation and open your eyes.

Later, see if your answer was right or not. If it did not work out the first time, don’t worry and don’t give up. In my seminars more than 80% of the people succeed with this exercise but it takes time and patience. This meditation should help you to trust in your intuition because you see that it works and over time, it'll be easier for you to make the decision that is right for you.

Enjoy the meditation and good luck!
