How Different Cultures Honour the Dead  

Article by Thom Sanders
























Whether we bury, burn, or float them, the dead are honoured differently in every culture. Here are just a few ways in which we pay tribute to the deceased.

Bon Festival - JapanThe Japanese Buddhist custom of honouring the spirits of their ancestors has been taking place for more than 500 years. The festival lasts for 3 days and involves a dance called the "Bon-Odori" which means "Bon dance" which is performed during the heat of summer. It varies depending on the region, but usually involves participants forming a circle around a high wooden scaffold called a "yagura". The scaffold acts as a bandstand for musicians and singers, as the circle of people dance around it.

Some dance movements imitate the movements of coal miners, such as digging, hanging lanterns and pushing carts. Other regions use fans, small towels with colourful designs on, or wooden clappers and straw hats embellished with flowers. The original religious meaning has been diluted with time, so this festival is primarily a celebration of the summertime, though floating lanterns representing the ancestral spirits' return to the world of the dead are still floated down rivers.

Day of the Dead - MexicoThis ritual also celebrates the deaths of ancestors, which originally involved keeping skulls as trophies and displaying them to symbolise death and re-birth in the rituals.

Today, one of the most common customs is to welcome departed spirits with elaborately garnished altars, with a rainbow of colourful flowers, ornaments, frames photos, candles and artwork. Graves of departed relatives are garnished in a similar way and families gather with vigils, while traditional food is provided such as "pan de muerto", or "bread of the dead", containing skeleton figurines. Wooden skulls are worn by many celebrating the Day of the Dead, painted with patterns and colours. Death is embraced rather than feared.

VietnamMost Vietnamese households and businesses have an ancestor altar, regardless of their religion. Before the western influence, they did not celebrate birthdays, but instead celebrated death anniversaries of relatives. Families gathered and held a banquet, burned incense sticks along with "Hell notes", and platters of food were used as offerings on the ancestor altar, surrounded by photos or plaques with names of the decease.

"Kutkot" Ritual - PhilippinesThe "Kutkot" ritual which involves bringing the dead "back to life", is gradually dying out. "Kutkot", a Filipino word for "scratch" or "unearth", involves dressing up the remains of the dead in cloth to make them take on a human appearance again.

Families are obliged to clean the skeleton and wrap the parts in a large cloth, draping it over so it resembles a kind of mannequin, called a "sinakot". The cloth must then be tied in various places to create a human form, similar to an ancient Egyptian mummy, and jewellery is place upon the corpse. Families keep these "kutkot" in huts for about a year, before transferring them to caves where others are housed.

Whilst these practices vary around the world, we all want to honour our dead and pay our respects to those who have passed on.

Article by Brian Green
























Death is the Prescription, how many more?

Prescription drug abuse, which I term medical drug addiction, like all addictions including alcoholism, (addiction to ethyl alcohol), though more widely recognized nowadays, is still not widely understood. And of course, combining the abuse of prescription drugs, (obtained legally or not), with "street drugs", maybe adding alcohol to the mix, though highly dangerous is commonplace too. My substance abuse Professor, James Crossen Ph/D, coined the generic term "Drugoholism" to cover all Chemical Dependency Issues, because though they have surface differences, most of the underlying downward spiraling progression process, towards ultimate destruction and death, is the same. Poly-substance Abuse is the technical term.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, nearly 7 million Americans are abusing prescription drugs, more than the numbers who are abusing cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens and ecstasy combined. The DEA says the number of painkiller addicts has nearly doubled from 2000, when 3.8 million Americans were hooked, Prescription and illegal drug overdose is the second leading cause of accidental death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. "Nearly all poisoning deaths in the United States are attributed to drugs," according to the CDC, "and most drug poisonings result from the abuse of prescription and illegal drugs." Prescription drug overdoses now kill more people than homicide.

How do we reconcile these facts with the continued over-prescription of these drugs, and the continuing high profile celebrity deaths, only the more visible tip of this massive iceberg? Compare the two following statements. "He was rocketed to stardom, but unable to handle the pressures of money and fame, he turned to drugs." Or, "His career was going downhill, and unable to handle the pain of failure, he turned to drugs." As a young man stated on the phone to me as a "hotline" counselor, "I only drink when I have problems." I replied, "It seems to me that life is full of problems, so that means you will always be drinking!" Appalled silence on the other end, then a small voice, "I never thought about it like that." Really!!

Similarly, "He is drinking because his wife died." What about the majority whose wives have died, who are not? Mistaking effects for causes, and vice-versa, in the self-feeding reciprocating cycles of Drugoholism, is usual rather than an exception. "Often what happens is someone experiences discomfort, anxiety, or pain. They start being treated with medicine, and need more," said Dr. Steven Juergens, an assistant clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Washington and a private addiction specialist in Bellevue, Washington. "They feel better when using the medication and often feel like "they need it,"" "I'm not an addict, I never took a drug to get high," maintained Michael Jackson. Dr. Paul, another Psychiatrist, reports in his hilarious history of personal Drugoholism, titled "Doctor, Addict, Alcoholic," "I never took a pill I didn't have the symptom for." From the book, "Alcoholics Anonymous." Anyone who is in the position of refuting that they have a problem usually has one. By the time any question comes up, some kind of difficulty has usually begun. When was the last time your Sunday Church going, one sherry at Christmas Great Aunt Maude, had to disprove ideas she has might have a problem?

What is missing in most media reportage on celebrity addiction is that THE PERSON is the addict, and more specifically, the person's choices have become dominated by addictive thinking. All chosen behavior is the result of thinking, so addiction is in the addict's head, not in the pill or bottle in their hand. Recently I read on the web another hypnotherapist's statement, "After twenty five years of practice, my observation is that addiction is 10% physical and 90% psychological." Otherwise those leaving incarceration, rehabs, or hospital detoxification units, who are physically sober, would never relapse! Right! One client I was counseling, an early stage milder case, could not "get it" until I said, "You are dependent on changing your mood with a chemical to get through the day." His eyes focused and lit up. "That's me," he exclaimed, and his resistance to recognizing his alcohol abuse evaporated. This was despite being comfortable with the concept of addiction, as applied to his intermittent cocaine binges. A facet of the times perhaps, or it's relative undeniability in his case, as he hated the effects of his cocaine use, while still clinging to the far slower destructive direction of his alcohol consumption.

So the persons chosen response to inner and outer "stress" is the missing link, this is what creates a drugoholic. An addiction to the "quick fix", to the easy way out, ensues. This, apart from any other factors, becomes an ingrained increasing habitual response, including response the real or imaginary stress created by the addiction itself. One of the many self-feeding cycles of addiction, independent of the "host" personality. Part of the cognitive, (thought), behavioral habit apparatus, known as psychological habituation in Drugoholism. And the alterations of cognitive processes and perceptions produced by ongoing use, whether physical, due to chemical toxicity in the brain, or psychological, from the addictive process itself, continues to actually create and additionally amplify perceived stress, as the condition, ( the dis-ease) progresses. So there is an increasing reliance on chemicals for stress relief, and increasing amounts of stress, real or created mentally, to relieve. This process underlies the confusion created by focusing on any combination of chemicals, or circumstances, at any given time.

All of this mentality applies to the withdrawal physiology of the body, when a drugoholic initially attempts to "clean up". So this becomes a major source of the drugoholic's terror at the idea of, or results of withdrawals, rather than the withdrawals themselves. This is irrespective of the fact that with severe physical, (metabolic) dependencies, that may be both physically and psychologically horrendous. The problem is not the initial withdrawals, for a true drugoholic, insurmountable as they might seem. The problem is learning to live a life on an ongoing daily basis without resorting to chemicals to escape/recoil/retreat from inner and outer reality in any way.

How much of Michael Jackson's "weirdness" and reports of him being a "complicated" person, were not due to his personality, but were in fact his response to medical drug addiction I wonder? And the degeneration into, histrionic emotionalism and other forms of narcissistic immaturity, that so often accompanies the overall deterioration of Drugoholism, as exhibited by Anna Nicole Smith too. Even worse, many categories of psychiatric drugs can cause potentially horrendous reactions. Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, Xanax, Lithium, Zyprexa and other psychiatric medications may spellbind patients into believing they are improved, when too often they are becoming worse, without the individuals realizing that their medications are semi-permanently deforming their way of thinking and feeling.

There are many reasons for this confusion around Drugoholism. Myth, misinformation, misunderstanding and ignorance, using a true meaning of the word which is, "lacking information", abound. In "The First Session with Substance Abusers." Nicholas A. Cummings, Ph/D, quotes studies that show MD's identify.05% of alcohol/drug problems in those who cross their door, while those well trained in Chemical Dependency identify 100%! Two hundred times more! Psychologists and other allied professions fare not much better in my experience and opinion. The psychology of addiction is a specialized field. Though MD's and clinical psychologists are highly respected and often quoted authorities, unless they have this specialized education, it is more likely to be a case of the blind leading the blind.

The current usual attitude to prescription drugs blinds MD's to what is happening. How many times is a new wonder drug trumpeted abroad? Sleep aids, Barbiturates etc., (Mebaral and Nembutal). Stimulants, ("uppers" such as Dexedrine, Adderall, Ritalin and Concerta). Tranquilizers, (Benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax). Painkillers from Oxycontin type opioids on down? These are now the source of endless drug problems. I never tire of reminding people, "The first medical use for Heroin was as a cure for Morphine addiction." So when medical people proclaim the latest painkiller or anti-anxiety medication as non-addictive or non-habit forming, I retort, "Except for those persons with chronic long-term anxiety, or chronic long-term pain." This is in respect of any combination of these factors, plus those induced by the medications themselves, addictive, real or imagined of course.

As Drugoholism is stigmatized, people are loath to attribute a bad "character flaw" to another, especially those idolized and celebrated for other genuine talents. And the ongoing mental, emotional and physical deterioration/degeneration process of Drugoholism is attributed to other sources to excuse the addicts again, in order to avoid personally "denigrating" them. This goes hand-in-hand with the addicts blaming defences. In actuality, the vulnerability to addiction in recent, (2009) studies increasingly reveals a 50% genetic/biochemical basis. There is also another additional constellation of factors that are outside the person's current will power or control, from pre-verbal cellular level infantile trauma, to role modeling from early childhood onwards. And there are many others too. Current psychic pain, "His wife died..." is the last and perhaps least factor, as is blaming it on childhood pain. Again, there are many with severe childhood pain that display no addictive tendencies whatsoever.

Another source of confusion is the actual disinformation put out by the psychiatric-medical-pharmaceutical complex. This has been rigorously documented by the psychiatrist Peter Breggin, MD., dealing with the medical beaurocracy at its highest levels. He reports how the drug manufacturer Eli Lilly was taken to court for offences tantamount to criminal fraud in this regard. In the mid 1990's, his "Toxic Psychiatry." outlined the growing problem of medical addiction. "The commonest drug addict in America is a female in her mid forties, addicted to barbiturates and a benzodiazapine," he stated at the time. The description of negative aspects of commonly prescribed psychiatric medications above, is taken from his website, http://www.breggin.com. He exposes the growing propaganda infused into the medical community, including the FDA, which diminishes, sidesteps or flat out denies the negative effects of commonly prescribed psychoactive drugs.

This is partly responsible for the idea that medical drugs are not as harmful as other drugs, and are legitimate, so those hooked on them are not real addicts. Also a convenient denial for the drugoholic themselves. In fact, being 100% pure, it needs to be stressed they can be worse. Oxycontin from the Doctor is as bad, IF NOT WORSE, than heroin from the dealer. It is similar to the confusion around alcohol, another socially acceptable drug. Many can drink with enjoyment and impunity. But once the ominous earmarks of the addictive process begin to appear, a trained counselor can identify the condition years before the final accelerating deteriorative spiral.

Due to the subconscious nature of much denial, and the stigma and ignorance surrounding this process, those close to the addict are often the most totally blind to the malady. The fact that Elvis Presley obtained FIVE THOUSAND pills from Doctors in his last months was invisible to his personal staff. The obvious obscuring corrupting interlinked interpersonal influences of fame, power, status and money, as the deteriorating celebrity surrounds themselves with yes men, are a special factor for the wealthy and those in the public eye. But how many alcoholics leave a complaining spouse to later marry someone with fewer objections, often an alcoholic themselves.

So now I hope it becomes more evident that addictive processes include prescription drugs in exactly the same way as with illicit ones, and that celebrities are not exempt from the identical states of mind and body that occur in these circumstances. Specific drugs may have different results, but the inexorable addictive process will take its toll in similar ways for the rich and famous, just as the scythe of Drugoholism cuts down the ill-educated poverty stricken ghetto street addict. If this article helps one person, I deem it a success, though I do of course hope for more.

Why Dead Celebrities And Terrorist Offensive Costumes Should Be Avoided   

Article by Paandu Pushpa
























Getting dressed up in a witch or even Jack-o-lantern costume, etc brings great pleasure to millions of Halloween party goers every year. Most party goers seem to all have the same goal in mind...to be the talk of the party. When we talk about making a big splash at a party, it's usually done without offending anyone. However, wearing a costume in "Good taste" does not exist for a small group of people. This group of people make it their business to make an offensive impression at some Halloween parties. These are the people that wear offensive costumes.

You might be surprised to know that there are about 5,000 people searching on Google every month using the keywords, "Offensive costumes. And you know what, the more offensive the costumes are, the better. So the next question we should ask is, why would anyone in their right mind want to wear offensive costumes?

Well this is fun and exciting for some people to wear. Some state that they actually make a big "Splash" when they wear offensive costumes. Well that depends on the crowd at the party. You know what, there are also theme parties where everyone wear offensive costumes. And again, the goal for each party goer would be to dress in the most offensive costume they could find at that party.

When snooping around on forums like answer.yahoo you would be surprised to see the amount of questions being asked about this type of costume. You would find questions like, "What are the most offensive costumes ever? Is wearing a costume of a Geisha Girl offensive? Well, let's answer two other popular questions that are often asked also.

1. Are terrorist Bin Laden halloween costumes offensive, especially in New York City?

Although it is Halloween and anyone can dress and be anyone or anything they want to be on this day, Bin Laden Offensive costumes would not do the trick. It is down right dangerous. One poor guy that tried this stunt on Halloween almost got killed. Well certainly New York City, especially in Manhattan is definitely one place that you should never, by all means, wear this costume.

2. Which 2009 celebrity death would be most offensive for a Halloween costume?

In 2009, one of the most popular celebrities in the entire world died. And we all know who that is...Michael Jackson. When visiting a another popular forum, one person answered the above question by stating that wearing an offensive Michael Jackson costume would be a blast and the most offensive ever. Unbelievable!

No one should dress in an offensive costume that disrespects the family of a dead celebrity. Any costume worn should never show disrespect to any human being whether dead or alive. As for Michael Jackson, any costume worn should be in celebration of his life, not the other way around.

It does not matter who the celebrity is, offending in this manner should never even be a second thought. Although it is okay to wear offensive costumes on Halloween, there is also a limit. In conclusion, despite that fact that it is Halloween, some offensive costumes should never, ever be worn.

Day of the Dead Celebrates Lives Lived  

Article by Gail Rubin
























The Day of the Dead celebrations held on November 1st and 2nd acknowledge the culmination of the life cycle, and that death will come to us all. While it directly follows Halloween, the holiday is not designed to scare or bring sadness.

The Day of the Dead allows the living to honor those who have died - family, friends, ancestors, and pets. While its origins are from ancient Meso-American cultures, which range from Mexico to Honduras and El Salvador, anyone can adopt this annual observance and tailor this colorful celebration to remember their own deceased loved ones.

History

Starting with the Halloween connection, going back about 3,000 years, the ancient Celtic people believed that on October 31st the boundary between the living and the dead dissolved, allowing spirits of the deceased to cross over into the living world. To combat the Druid festival Samhain (pronounced Sow-wen) held this time of year, the Catholic Church moved All Saints' Day - a.k.a. All Hallows' Day - from mid-May to November 1. Halloween comes from abbreviating All Hallows' Even, the evening before the day.

Meanwhile, over in the Western Hemisphere, indigenous peoples such as the Aztec, Maya, Olmec, Toltec and other tribes in Mexico held rituals celebrating the deaths of ancestors during the month of August. It corresponded with a festival dedicated to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl, The Lady of the Dead. When Catholic Spanish Conquistadors came to the New World more than 500 years ago, they tried to eradicate these native rituals that seemed to mock death and symbolized death and rebirth.

The ancient rituals refused to die in the face of forced conversion. So to make the ritual more Christian, the Spaniards moved it to correspond with All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day, November 1 and 2. In Mexico, Dia De Los Muertos as it is known in Spanish, often honors deceased children and infants on the first day, and deceased adults on the second day.

The early Meso-American attitude was that life is a dream, and death is the awakening to real life. The dead are considered to have semi-divine status, given permission to return once a year. They are to be welcomed, not feared.

How Day of the Dead is Celebrated

Today, Day of the Dead celebrations are held in Mexico, parts of Central and Latin America, in the Southwest U.S., and some European countries. In Mexico, the celebrations are elaborate, even more so than Christmas observances. Parades and profuse decorations in homes and cemeteries make this time of year a tourist spectacle.

Families visit cemeteries to clean the graves of loved ones, decorate them with flowers and candles, and commune with the spirits of the departed. Often, they picnic in the cemetery, bringing the deceased's favorite food and drink.

When the Church granted magical curative powers to relics, it was extended to the use of milagros, Spanish for miracles, metal charms in the shape of body parts that need healing. This gave rise to specially shaped Day of the Dead foods, such as sugar skulls and pan de muerto, sweet egg bread baked in the shape of skulls or bones. These can be offerings to the dead or eaten by the living.

Colorful parades are held with people dressed as skeletons, a reminder that in death, we actually continue life. Skull masks and artwork of skeletons doing everyday activities, such as dancing, bicycle riding, and eating and drinking, remind us that the everlasting soul continues on, separate from the body.

The celebration continues in the home, welcoming the dead with respect and devotion. Some families will make an elaborate dinner, set out the food and not eat it until the next day, to let the spirits eat first. They may also make the bed with fresh sheets to allow the spirits to rest after their long journey to earth. And they construct ofrendas, individualized altars with offerings to maintain relations with the dead.

Making an Ofrenda or Altar

You don't have to be Mexican to honor your loved ones with a Day of the Dead altar in your home and welcome their spirits for a visit. Start by setting up a table with photos of the deceased, and their ashes if you have them. Don't forget to include departed pets!

Decorate around the photos with flowers and candles. Set out foods and beverages that they used to enjoy. Play the music they loved. Put art objects they collected or artwork they created on or near the altar. Write messages to them and place the notes next to their photos. Include items from pets' lives, such as toys, leashes, treats, and tags.

Traditional ofrendas have items that represent the four elements of earth, air, fire and water. A glass of water is included, to give the spirits a drink after their long journey. Tissue paper sheets with elaborate cutout designs, called papel picado, represent air, as they move with the gentlest breeze. Flowers and a bowl of salt often represent the earth, and candles provide fire.

Marigolds are the flower of choice for Day of the Dead decorating. Their pungent scent is said to guide souls to earth, and marigolds are often still blooming in late October. Flowers can be arranged in an arch, along with sheets of papel picado, representing the connection from earth to heaven.

Create the altar prior to Halloween, and keep it up for as long as it feels right. Photograph the altar for posterity. Each year presents a new opportunity to remember and honor those who meant so much to us while they lived. Inevitably, there will be new faces to add as the years go by.

Celebrity Stories – John Lennon  

Article by Nussbaumer Curnutte
























John Lennon came to be, Oct 1940, during a German Air Raid in Oxford Street Maternity hospital, London. Throughout his childhood, he saw small of his father, Freddie, who went AWOL, whilst serving in the navy. For quite some time, Steve was brought up through his mother's sister Mimi. As part of his earlier years John was a mischievous students, who'd stop dawdling to accept the micky out of teachers and other college student. Whilst as part of his early teens he got their first acoustic guitar and would devote several hours actively playing.

To cite data supplied by the actual always-objective "Wikipedia," in life, John Lennon was jealous, possessive, violent, angry, chauvinistic, abusive, adulterous, prideful, an conceited defender of a twice-convicted murderer, buddy towards the Chi town Seven and violent Yippie serenity activists Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Angela Davis, and Bobby Seale from the Dark Panther Party, Marxist sympathizer, confirmed druggie and object of a deportation / removal attempt within the Ough.S. like a persona non grata.

John Lennon wasn't often the best Beatle; in the beginning it had been Paul. But gradually, over a period of period, it was John Lennon who won my coronary heart. I think the actual transition began sometime during the latter section of the 1960s. In those days, it did actually my personal young mind, the world had been deteriorating. Revolution and anarchy were about the doorstep. John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King as well as Bobby Kennedy had each already been assassinated, riots were springing upward all over the southern, Watts was burning and the war in Viet Nam was escalating. Out of the turmoil an expanding food cravings came to be amongst lots of my generation, which includes personally, for truth and peace.

Lennon was usually the outspoken a single. A few say he was obviously a hypocrite as he preached about enjoy and peace--not war. In 1969, he demonstrated his beliefs as part of his composed song, Give Peace A Chance, right after their departure from The Beatles, throughout his single profession. He defended numerous legal rights and causes. He was an anti-war activist. Their beliefs were misinterpreted and often he or she was taken as a socialist or even communist. President Nixon wanted him deported. Lennon was up and fought with regard to his right to remain where he or she loved to be--in New York City, U.S.A. Sadly enough, it had been even the place he was killed by a deranged fan.

John Lennon's death was the initial with the large news celebrity deaths. Not Elvis' demise 3 1/2 years previously was covered for this extent, as society was only after that entering the present day information age. (David Brinkley even hesitated regarding mentioning Elvis' death inside the first two moments with the national newscast in 1977.) Indeed, the world outpouring of affection as well as affection for John, Yoko, and his young children was unexpected. (The 2nd big report that night was of a prospective hostage deal from Iran.)

John Lennon was gunned down by crazed fan Tag Chapman on December 8, 1980 as you're watching Dakota, a fresh You are able to apartment. Joey Harrow, a musician who lives close to the Dakota, experienced the ghostly sighting of John in 1983. Harrow claimed he saw John's ghost in the Dakota entrance doorway, where he would been shot 36 months ahead of. Harrow claimed that the Lennon apparition had been surrounded by an "eerie light."

Charlotte Family Attorney for Wrongful Death Compensation   

Article by Combs Law
























"Death is not to be mourned . . . as it is the transition of a soul . . . it is the beginning of rebirth . . . it is a phase where the wrongs of the past life is undone to mark a new beginning . . . - Anonymous.

This is one reason why many cultures over the world celebrate death of their loved ones like it is something festive and happy. Death is the ultimate release from the bonds of the tangible world. When people suffering from terminal illnesses, which causes them unbearable pain every living moment of their lives, the ones who are seeing them suffer would pray for their release than trapping them in a body that makes them suffer excruciatingly. Therefore, one can say that death to many may come as a boon. But this is not true under all circumstances.

Sometimes, death is uncalled for. Sometimes, people loose their lives through accidents that could have been avoided, or, other conditions that could other wise be taken care of. There are millions who loose their lives before it is their time to leave the world. Cases of murder and suicide besides accidents can be mentioned in this respect. It is needless to mention what level of mental anguish is caused through sudden unexpected and premature loss of a loved one (be it a wife, husband, children, parent etc). There is no power on Earth that can compensate this irreversible situation. People will have to deal with it, live with it and get used to it as soon as possible to get back to continuing their lives.

However, there may be a number of other factors that may be associated with these sudden deaths. They are usually financial in nature. If the one who has passed away was the sole wage earner of the family, then the burden of pain would include much more than the loss of the member himself / herself. Loss of income can hit the family hard. If the family has small children to be raised, it becomes all the more difficult. One may fall back on insurance, but then, insurance may not cover all situations. This is the time when one would have to approach the wrongful death lawyers to help the affected get the best of financial justice.
