William Shakespeare: “Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.”


1. Courage Isn’t Just for Superheroes

Do you believe that courage is something that only special people display in times of great danger? Many people think that courage is an unusual act of bravery, but it is far more than that, and far more common than we are led to believe. You see, courage isn’t just for superheroes.

For most people, the answer to that question would be a resounding, “Yes!” But, if we think about it a little more, we might also agree that courage needs to be an everyday fact of life, if we are going to use more of our potential and become all that we can be. In fact, there is a good chance that courage precedes all positive change. Courage is the magic key that opens the door to the full experience of life.

Of course, no courage is needed if you refuse to take any risks. But, if you don’t risk anything, the truth you must eventually face is that you are actually risking everything! You see, people who react to life from a state of continuous fear instead of courage are stressed out and uncertain, lost in a dark cloud of doubt and worry. They are terrified of change, when change is what is happening all the time.

Courage is an absolute necessity if you are going to succeed, regardless of setbacks and the chance of failure. But it is also what it takes to smile when life is hard, and what allows you to stand your ground when others want to put you down. You see, courage fills up your life with power and it empowers others as well. We can see evidence of courage all around us, every day of the week, if we only look for it.

Would you like to have more courage? First, expand your definition of what courage means. For some of us, just getting out of bed in the morning is an extraordinary act of courage. Once you have a more expansive idea of what courage is, picture how you would behave if you already had it, and begin to act accordingly. Courage starts in the mind, and then works its way out into the world.

Just remember, we are all stronger than we currently believe we are! ~The Pacific Institute

3. Presentation: Rajneeshpuram 35 Years Later, June 27

Portland, OR –  In 1981, the Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, his personal assistant Ma Anand Sheela, and their community of followers purchased the Big Muddy Ranch near the tiny Oregon town of Antelope. The ambitious experiment soon ignited great concern among the citizens of Antelope as well as among state and federal officials. The resulting legal and cultural controversies – many of them caused or exacerbated by supporters of the Bhagwan – played out in state and national media and in state and federal courtrooms.

On Thursday, June 27, the U.S. District Court of Oregon Historical Society (USDCOHS) and the Oregon Historical Society (OHS) are pleased to welcome leading advocates from both sides of the Rajneeshpuram episode, who will address issues that continue to reverberate today. Three speakers made prominent appearances in the highly acclaimed Netflix Original documentary series Wild Wild Country. The program begins at 7pm at the First Congregational Church in Portland. Tickets are $25 and are available via brownpapertickets.com. This program is the latest in USDCHS’s Famous Cases lecture series and is sponsored in part by Perkins Coie LLP.

5. OMSI Events to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 in July

Portland Ore. – On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy set the national goal of performing a crewed lunar landing and subsequent return to Earth by the end of the decade. On July 20, 1969, that goal became a reality when the Apollo 11 mission successfully took humans to the moon and back.

During the month of July, The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to commemorate one of the greatest engineering feats in history. Museum guests can learn about the science that took humans to the moon, share where they were when Neil Armstrong first set foot on the lunar surface and attend events celebrating the mission.

There’s something for everyone at OMSI in July: movies, events, science demos, laser shows, stomp rockets and much more.

•    Explore what satellites can tell us about the ocean and its tides.
•    Viruses can live in extreme places –can they live in outer space?
•    Learn how scientist use satellites in space to learn about our oceans.
•    Explore the oceans from space, and learn about the microscopic creatures that help regulate our climate.
•    Using clues from incomplete data from satellites, become a sea ice scientist and map the Arctic Ocean.
