“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” ~ J.K. Rowling
By Catherine Austin Fitts
One of the most remarkable aspects of my life so far is the number of times that I have faced death – call them “almost near death experiences.” A healer once told me that there were more than a few people who found it baffling, even terrifying, that I was alive and well.
One of the blessings of such circumstances is that I have made friends with death. In a favorite movie, the hero says “Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.” Indeed if you can smile at death, including your own, you free yourself from a world of worries, many instilled in our culture for the sole purpose of creating dependency and selling commercial and financial products. You step into a more meaningful and lively life.
This week on The Solari Report, I will speak with author and attorney Jo Kline Cebuhar about her new novel Exit that tells the story of life and death in a hospice in Iowa. Jo will share her recommendations for building our skill sets at managing the end-of-life, whether our own or of those we love. We will also touch base on her remarkable work on health care proxies [See our last Solari Report with Jo] and ethical wills.
It’s the last week of the month so no Money & Markets. I will be driving across the Southwest, after joining subscribers for lunch in Albuquerque next Wednesday.
For Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend To Dance With The White Dog, a movie made from the book of the same title. Love does not end with death. Indeed, some of us continue to communicate with those we love after they die and we may join them when we do. To Dance with the White Dog tells such a tale.
Talk to you Thursday!
