Repost: Probably the Best Free Security List in the World

Status-security-high-iconThe list below is regularly updated by the guys at TechSupport Allert and it contains lots of free security tools.
From Realtime protection to System rescue, this page has it all.
Of course, if you are an advanced user, you already know what you need and how to set up your computer’s security, so there is a chance that you won’t need this list.

But, if you are a rookie and you don’t know what you…

It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.

It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes.’

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

More Calmness = Less Depression

Research shows clearly that people who experience extreme emotions (‘positive as well as ‘negative’) are much more prone to depression.

So, if you are ‘addicted’ to getting high levels of emotional stimulation from experiences, conversations, relationships and so on, it could be time you started doing with less.

For less depression, it’s not more happiness we need, it’s more calmness.

Journey through the universe beyond the speed of light

I wanted to share with all of you one of the most beautiful documentaries i have seen so far about journeys through the Universe.
It’s so calming, so beautiful….so curious. 1 hour and 28 minutes of space travel worth every minute of your time.
Enjoy it!
