When is our life completed?

Since several weeks, a Dutch organisation is using radio commercials to gain (financial) support for changing our laws on completed lives. The issue of completed lives is one of our last taboos. It's weird that we are allowed to kill our pets, while we are not allowed to show mercy to humans. During my 2013 burnout, I did consider ending my own life. I did not have...

Philosophy – our most dangerous belief?

According to the Bible, money is the root of all evil (eg, 1 Timothy 6:10). Others would blame religion due to global religious violence (eg, Christian Crusades, Hindu nationalism violence, Reconquista, Shia vs Sunni). Still, politics is another belief responsible for many wars (eg, Russia vs Ukraine). In my view, 5 out of our 7 Belief systems (ie, money, politics,...

Saving grace heals the pains

I noticed the expression above in Cold Case (ie, Se3, Ep7), a crime-drama TV series rated 7.6 in IMDb. This unfamiliar expression raised my curiosity right away. A saving grace is "something positive in an otherwise bad situation". Hence, the addition "heals the pains". My friend's recent death (see my blog) fits the expression above. I'm relieved that his suffering...

“Are you alright?”

Her question was genuine. Yet I did not know how and what to answer. Finally, I answered that I've been asking that same question to myself for quite a long time. I added that I think that I'm okay. I did not add the words feel and believe - this time. Obviously, I could have ignored her question but I didn't. I could use the lousy autumn weather as an excuse for...
