The Afterlife
According to Billy Fingers
"Death is just birth in disguise"
 - Billy Fingers

Beyond 50 encourages you to tune in to the interview this Friday at 12 p.m. (PT)/3 p.m. (ET) with Dr. Annie Kagan about her ongoing, after-death communications with her bad-boy brother, William Cohen, aka Billy Fingers.   He passed away at the age of 62, having spent his lifetime in jails, an addict, a former drug dealer and homeless in Miami Dade, Florida.

Dr. Kagan granted us permission to share quotes from Billy about what life is like for him on "the other side.


Our Earthly Experiences Recorded:
"When we're alive, there's something inside us, a sort of cosmic computer chip, that records everything we go through.  Right now, I'm watching my whole life from my birth to my death.  What's really great is that this hologram has a very special feature.  You know how you sometimes think to yourself, "What if?"  For example, when I was alive I often wondered, "What if I had married my first love?"  or "What if I had done well in school?"

Well, guess what?  My hologram is expandable.  I can live out the life those "what ifs" would have brought me to.  What's surprising, though, is that it doesn't seem like one way is more valuable than any other.  I don't have a preference.  It's all fascinating, and I have no regrets."


The Way Your Life Turns Out:
"And here's another secret for you, my sister.  There is not right way for things to turn out.  Some endings are happier, some not so happy, but it's not just the happiness percentage that matters.  It's the music of it.  Most people's lives don't have enough music.  I was lucky; my life was a rock opera."

Becoming the Universe:
"After you die, you spend a lot of time, solo time, exploring yourself as a Universe.  Do you believe that?  You are the Universe.  But society teaches you different.  Society teaches limitation.  Believe me, Annie, everything you ever need is already inside you.  And who you really are is far beyond your comprehension.  that's why living squeezed into the human experience can be painful at time.  It was for me."

Make It a Game:
"Earth is just a stopover.  A kind of game.  Make it a star game.  If I could give you a gift, it would be to teach you how to stay free inside that game, to find the glory inside yourself, beyond the roles and the drama, so you can dance the dance of the game of life with a little more rhythm, a little more abandon, a little more shaking-those-hips."

Annie asked, How do I make my life a star game?"
"Become...the...Universe."

"How can I say that you are the Universe?  Because I have become as small as the smallest quantum particle, and as big as the multitude of galaxies that exist in space.  I was always like that, really.  I just didn't know it.  And so is everyone else.


Look at pictures of the Universe.  Then close your eyes and image those stars, clouds, comets, and galaxies inside and all around you.

When you turn your attention to the limitless, the irritation seems small compared to the sun and moon and stars.  When you imaging the infinite, you're touched by your infinite self."

Afghanistan on the Brink of Disaster


    Afghanistan on the Brink of Disaster
  Friday, August 2
12 p.m. (PT)/3 p.m. (ET)
 A Live & Online Broadcast

For Beyond 50's "Political" talks, listen to an interview with Nasir Shansab.  Nasir Shansab was once one of Afghanistan’s leading industrialists until he was forced to leave in 1975.  In recent years he has returned often to view the country’s struggles firsthand.  He'll talk about the opportunity to rebuild Afghanistan has been squandered, and America is losing the war.  Since the fall of the Taliban in November 2001, Afghanistan has not evolved into a functioning state. Democracy never had a chance to take root.  Without exception, the country’s elections were rigged, allowing the worst elements of society to rise to the top. Warlords have retained their power.  Institutions have stayed weak and ineffective.  The government is infested with corruption and nepotism.  Endemic corruption, utter lawlessness, and government incompetence have pushed Afghanistan to the brink of disaster.

Violet Young: Love Loss and the Now
For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Violet Young.  She'll talk about her profound experiences around grief and offer ways for people to weather the storm of major life changes.   We, as humans, have free will which gives us the options to love freely or lock ourselves down. To lock down means that we don't have to feel the pain but it also means that we no longer have the chance to feel the exhilaration or deep companionship of love.  So eventually we start to exist but not live fully.  We start sleepwalking through life in kind of a neutral way and joy just dries up.  Young will also offer ways you can focus focus on peace and tranquility.
