The Gift of Single-mindedness / Our Dragonflies are Grateful for the Pesticide Free Campus

Getting children to think is easy,
If you think about it.
But don’t think too much.

“Do everything in moderation,
including moderation.” 
– Benjamin Franklin
Inventor of many things, including
The United States of America

Moderation is the best advise
I have encountered.
The violation of this admonition
Is why a few of us
Are driving a Tesla.
This poor man,
Who changed the way the whole world lives,
Did not heed this gentle warning.

Emerson

“The sanity of society
is a balance of a thousand insanities.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nikola Tesla, according to Life Magazine’s
Special issue of September, 1997,
Is among the 100 most famous people
Of the last 1,000 years.
He did not become insane,
As we may be able to define it,
At the end of his life,
For he was like that his entire life.
The line between insanity and genius
Is thin
And often does not exist.

timemag

There is no great genius
without some touch of madness.
                       – Seneca

This assumption is reasonable within
The levels of intelligence he demonstrated.
Thinking far too much
Contributed to his lonely, withdrawn existence.
He died without ever getting married
Or having the joy of children
To drive him insane.

NIKOLA TESLA

NIKOLA TESLA

WE ARE OF SINGLE MIND

My friends,
The awareness of
Our ability, or disability,
As some may view it,
To think of one,
And ONLY one,
Thing at a time,
Can become a gift of Life.

But this phenomenon can become
A deadly exercise in poor judgement,
If you think you can text while driving.
Not fully knowing that the human brain
Simply switches rapidly back and forth
From one thought to another,
Has cost much needless suffering
And many lives.

illusion 1

You, and I, are capable of thinking
About only ONE thing at a time.
Research (read more) has proven this
Time after time.
Oh, there are exceptions,
Very few,
But these exceptions are not me,
And they are not you.

 The myth of multitasking has never been stronger.
But researchers prove it is a myth
And they have the data to prove it.

As we discussed in my class in
Philosophy, The Art of Wondering,
Humans don’t do things simultaneously.
Instead, we switch our attention from task to task
Extremely fast,
Or, if you are like me,
A little slower.

illusion 2

And, if you are like me,
Drink another fruit smoothie
And think only about
Getting the very last drop.
Staring into the bottom of the cup
Is a deep enough thought,
When you stop thinking about it.
For those of you who referred to me
As an old smoothie,
You were about 40% right.
The rest is made up of water
Three brain cells
And one nerve ending.
I keep asking my students
Not to step on that.

“In order to act,
you must be somewhat insane.
A reasonably sensible man
is satisfied with thinking.”
– Georges Clemenceau

Optical illusions

According to Meyer, Evans and Rubinstein,
“Multitasking may seem efficient on the surface
But may actually take more time in the end
And involves more error.
Mental blocks created by shifting between tasks
Can cost as much as 40 percent of
Someone’s productive time.”
(This explains texting and auto accidents.)

“The brain is very good
at deluding itself.”

– neuroscientist Earl Miller

But there is unbelievable beauty
In our awareness
Of ourselves.

This inability (to multitask)
Like so very, very many things,
Should be recognized as a Gift,
A singular ability,
A Blessing,
If you think about it,
But not too much.
Remember, moderation in everything
Including moderation.

4

But what exactly does that mean?
What is a moderate, moderate.
I think we keep looking for that being
To elect to public office –
A moderate, moderate.
But since I do not know
What this is,
I do not know
Who this is
To vote for.

 We humans may eventually evolve
Into beings that can think
More than ONE thought
At a time,
Perhaps, even thinking about
EVERYTHING at once,
Much like the quantum computers
We are now creating.
(read more here to blow your mind out of calm waters)

Such a God like quality
May bring us
“Nearer My God to Thee”,
But so far,
Our single-mindedness has brought us
The internet,
Fruit smoothies (Thank you Lord!) and
The Atomic Bomb.

5

I Pray
That enabling even more capability,
Doesn’t also blow up
In our hands.

But my dear Friends,
Hidden very deep within the folds
Of our SINGULAR ability
To think one thought at a time,
Lies a secret to a happy life.
Knowing that you can think about
One, and only ONE thing
At a time
Is a truly precious insight.

It is your awareness
Of this
That is of value,
Not the knowing itself,
Not the thing you know you can
Or cannot do.

Hang in there.
I am swimming to
The shallow end of the pool,
Running out of air,
Breathing deep and
Taking in more water.
This is where more children my age go
To have fun.

6

Knowing that your mind can harbor
Only ONE thought at a time –
Being fully aware of this –
Can place you in control
Of the next moment,
The next hour,
In control of your life.

If in THIS moment
You are sad, regretful or depressed,
Quickly,
Do something else,
Something you may call distracting,
That you know would not be unpleasant, painful,
Something that would be, in fact, pleasurable,
Anything, including just jumping into the pool.
Hey, try it with all your clothes on –
Then you’ll have something to remember!
That will really take your mind off your miseries.
You will laugh so hard
You may not be able to get out of the pool
By yourself, without help.
So, pull the helper
Into the water with you!
That will make your day,
And his.

Life need NOT
Be uneventful.

7

I pushed my sweet LeVonna
Into a swimming pool fully clothed.
She never strolled by another pool
Standing close to me again.
It still makes my day
Just thinking about it.

Are you getting the picture yet?
Hey, (west Texan for, Hey)
You can be fully in control
Of this moment,
Of your mind,
Of your mood.

By the way,
Pushing her into the pool
Was the last moment
I felt any kind of control of her.
What boggles my mind is,
She then said “Yes”,
And were married shortly thereafter.
Crazy pays.

8

Try other distracting things:
To putting on a favorite movie,
To calling a good friend
(that’s what they are for, silly),
To taking a nice, warm (or ice cold) bath,
To opening a really good book,
To cuddling with the dog or cat,
To saying something funny,
Or preparing something great to eat
Or eating that great something,
Or shopping
(great therapy, just ask the Ladies)
Or best yet:
Totally immersing yourself in
Helping someone else in need.

You get the idea.

You are in charge, in control
In command of the very next moment,
The next hour
The rest of the beautiful day,
A beautiful Life.
You are so singular in your ability
To think,
That you have nothing more
To be responsible for
Than the next thought
About the next moment.

9

WE cannot think two thoughts
At the same moment,
(Thank you Lord),
So take control of the only thing
You need to control
Or can control.
And keep on controlling.

Remember,
You simply cannot worry
About tomorrow
While you are on a high speed roller coaster,
(Isn’t that right, Ian?)
In a hot air balloon,
Or full of hot air, like me,
Or right after
You were stung by a honey bee
(It happens when your trying to help them.
We house these beautiful creations
behind our house.)

10

Life, my friend,
Is a SERIES
Of small pleasures,
Distractions,
Moments
YOU make.

So stay in motion.

Make every “momentous” decision
One for Joy.
Don’t leave room in your mind,
Or your precious Heart,
For even one second of sadness.
God has empowered you
To think,
To do,
To act,
And to Love life.
He Loved you enough
To give you Life.
And He will Love you
Long after.

Yes,
God has empowered you
To Love your life,
To Love every person you meet,
To Love every turtle crossing the street
(they are now ALL endangered species),
Every cricket keeping you awake,
Every river you cross,
Every thought
That flows into the Eternal Sea.

11

Never stop acting,
Deciding, moving your mind
To do the things that
Bring joy into life.
It is
Your decision.
And it always has been,
And always will be.

Get out of your chair,
Kick open the front door,
And run –
Toward anything or anyone
That has ever made you happy,
That will bring you pure Joy
Again and again and again.

Life,
Is a SERIES
Of small pleasures.

12

My dear friends,
It is no longer necessary
For you to be unhappy,
To live without Joy
In your life.

Being aware
Of the Love of God
For you,
Of your awareness of life,
It’s limitations,
It’s opportunities
And your ability to
Command the next moment of
Your presence on this Beautiful Earth,
Can free your mind,
And your precious Heart,
From all fear,
Despair, boredom
And hopelessness.

Take time
To contemplate
The rare beauty of your existence,
Of this awesome moment,
That is the true Treasure
Of your brief time.

Capture the next moment in time
Take command of what you do,
And then, share your story.
So many others need help along the way.

13

My Precious Friend,
You are Morning,
Before Tomorrow comes the night,
And Blessed are the moments
In which you take the time
To sing your song,
To Blossom in God’s Spring,
To bring warmth to Hearts in need,
And feel the Sacred Rain,
That ever so gently falls
In tears,
From all the Joy
You bring.

May the Joy of our Lord
Always abide
In your
Very Precious Heart.

Our school has a large number of
Beautiful Dragon Flies.
In twenty years
I have never been bitten by a mosquito at school.
I don’t know of any other place
Where one can make the same claim.

Dragonflies also feed on other insects like flies.
Once hatched, the larva of the Dragonfly
Becomes an aquatic predator,
Feeding on other aquatic insects,
Including mosquito eggs and larvae.
The mosquito is the deadliest
Creature on planet Earth.
They are the deadliest,
because they spread so much disease.
Mosquitoes are responsible
For the deaths of many hundreds of thousands
Of people every year.
Estimates are difficult to come by.

Maintaining a pesticide free environment
Pays huge dividends.
Not only for the safety of our precious children,
But for so many of God’s other
Stunningly beautiful Creations.
And since Humans are
The number two killer on the planet,
I recommend
Hate Free Environments.
Now there’s an idea
Worth thinking about.
But we haven’t thought about that much,
Have we?

if you are installing a bug zapper to fight mosquitoes,
And have a Dragonfly population,
Turn it off.
It zaps the beautiful dragonflies, too.

ROSIE

My precious Rosie shared countless small moments of pure joy with me for 18 years and one month. She still resides deeply embedded in my heart. Life, is a SERIES Of small pleasures. And I cannot count the number she gave to me. Sometimes, the greatest Gifts are very small indeed. God Blesses us in ways we are not always fully aware of.

Some say
A good deed is over
When it is done,
When it just begins
To live
That day.

Love never dies.

Annie with John Hammons

Annie Anderson with John Hammons. John donated hundreds of hours to construct this school. He always refused payment saying, “No. This is for children.” I found in John a remarkable, Loving friend and a truly Christian Man, a man whose Love lives to this day.

As the phoenix of our Heart ascends,
The essence of our being
Discovers rebirth.
And with our Heart filled with Love,
Hate has nowhere to hide.
The prison walls
Of our bitter discontent,
Crumble into the dust
Beneath our feet.

How Blessed we become
When anger is in retreat,
For the human Heart
Harbors Love and Hate,
And one
Will taste defeat.

The vibrancy of our lives
Is always
Precariously perched
Upon the eve
Of destruction.

Seeking shelter
From the storms of life,
One Heart seeks refuge
Inside of another,
To be born again,
Freed from despair,
Bathed in rare beauty,
One melts inside the other,
In the Heart of another,
The mind of a Father,
The tears of a Mother.

My very dear friends,
We cannot live in hope and happiness
With a pale dead sun
That fails us at dawn,
And a sky always streaked with gray,
Doubting everything,
Fearing only that life
Will soon end.

But knowing,
Surely knowing,
Within the fiber of your being,
That you are a Beautifully Crafted
Creation of God,
Will give your precious Heart
A beautiful song to sing.

 “We know that if our earthly house
of this tabernacle were dissolved,
we have a building of God,
a house not made with hands,

You may enjoy Eternal Life,
And know the Compassionate

“If God is dead,

– Francis Schaeffer

This century may herald the day
We learn the secrets of eternal life.
In 1786, average life expectancy was 24 years.
In 1886 it doubled to 48.
Today a newborn can expect to live,
On average, 76 years.
And new discoveries have scientists
Forecasting our life expectancy
Will soon be over 100 years.
If the pace of research continues to accelerate
And predictions are correct,
Human beings may not have to die at all
In the future.

And this leads to deep
Philosophical considerations,
And challenging Theological reflections.
Such an evolving theoretical conclusion
Posits and affirms
The dynamic assertion that
Science and Religion are rapidly merging,
Becoming one.

Millenniums of our human history
Have recorded time after time after time,
The reality of immortality.
Universally believed,
It is the most indestructible of all Beliefs
And the most insightful and penetrating
Of all the phenomenon of mind.

The Hope of Immortality
Was placed in the Heart of Man
By One who has no beginning,
By One who has no end.”

But,
It is not just immortality
That man needs.

If life is to be meaningful.
If man could exist forever,
But God not exist,
Existence would have
No real significance,
No eternal meaning.
And the universe
Has no meaning,
If there is no God
To give it one.

In a Universe without God,
Good and evil do not exist,
There is only the barren plain
Of existence,
No one to say you are right,
And I am wrong.
Think of the suffering and death,
The unbearable pain,
Godless men have caused.

What is true of mankind
Is true of each of us,
As individuals.

The question of God’s existence
Is vital to man.
It is vital to mankind.

Christianity,
And countless other
Beautiful expressions of Faith,
Over centuries of time,
Promise a purposeful life,
Filled with hope and joy.

We can live happily
In our Faith and in our Love,
And with the assurance of
Eternal Life,
And Bountiful, Unbelievably Beautiful
And truly Everlasting

Vitamin D3 and Arthritis Relief

Well Folks, I was mowing the grass one day
and truly in sufferance of arthritis. I literally could not turn my head enough to look carefully left or right while driving. My wrists were always very painful. And yes, I prayed for some relief from all the pain.

Marie Anderson

Marie Anderson

I was in the throes of pain when I drifted into remembrance of my Mother, Marie, who suffered so very, very much from this disorder. She told me that when she was ten years old she was admitted to the University of Iowa Medical Center. Her arms and wrists and legs and ankles and neck were bandaged, as she sat in a chair in her hospital room and cried whenever anyone entered the room for fear they would touch her.

Later, a Surgeon would sever her nerves in both wrists, her neck and ankles, in order to give her some relief from all the pain. Keep in mind this was in the early 1930’s.

Her pain in the neck would return when I was born.
Yes, I was a little rascal. Today I love all little rascals. And my neck pain returns from time to time. (Call it: payback!)

I vividly recall observing the indentions on the back of her wrists and the back of her neck that resulted from the operations. Prior the this surgery, her primary physician informed her parents that nothing could be done and that she would probably, “Leave the hospital only in a little pine box”. I was astonished that this was the manner in which they were told of the severity of the arthritis. Apparently, not everyone survived.

My how my Mother suffered. You can imagine how I cried later in life when she told me I was the only real joy in her life.

Well, I was able to ride on the lawn mower and keep praying for relief when a dear friend, Linda Latham, the Mother of another truly wonderful friend and former student, Sam. stopped her car on the road to visit with me. I do love west Texas style gabbing and swapping of tall tales. Hey, I can brag about anything, even your child.

Sam Latham

     My dear friend Sam. (Come and see me again.)

I shared my suffering with her. And she, with great compassion in her eyes, took the time to inform me of the relief she found taking Vitamin D3. So I drove, a little over the speed limit, to the health food store and purchased a bottle. And guess what? It took a couple of weeks but suddenly I noticed that I was no longer in pain! Linda, you were an answer to a fervent prayer.

Is that Mary Alice? (Yes. In 2009)

Is that Mary Alice? (Yes. In 2009)

God Blesses each of us who seek His help. And may God always abide with you, Linda, and your truly wonderful son, Sam. I Love you both very much. Thank you.

Perhaps you need help.

Vitamin D3

Several studies have looked at the connection between vitamin D and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and Mental Health Benefits.

Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and vitamin D deficiency may be linked to disease severity.

Vitamin D-3 is the natural form that your body creates when the skin is exposed to the ultraviolet rays from the sun. Vitamin D-3 can also be found in animal products but especially oily fish, such as salmon. read more

sunshine. Research is suggesting a strong link between vitamin D status and basic cognitive function, mood and overall mental health. It is amazing to discover how many serious maladies may be prevented or cured with a little sunshine. Folks, get the kids out of the house.

If you are taking vitamin D supplements, you need to pay close attention to the dose you are taking, because taking too much vitamin D can cause serious side effects and interactions with other medications. The National Institute of Medicine has set a tolerable upper intake level of 100 mcg per day, which is equivalent to 4,000 IU. Like all health supplements, you should only take vitamin D with your doctor’s approval. So give the good Doctor a call! read more

Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it’s gonna rain today”

(Randy Newman)

Beautiful-Sky

Human kindness overflowing is indescribably beautiful.

My dear friends,
The beauty of music and art and nature,
We can enjoy,
Cherish what they bring into our lives.
But human kindness
Overflowing,
Possesses beauty beyond
What we can behold.

It transcends the boundaries
Of what can be defined.
Our Love for each other
Is reachable,
Teachable,
Indescribably beautiful,
And far, far beyond
The value of anything else
In this Life.

beautiful-skies-thunder

Sometimes the only way to describe our precious Love is with the word – indescribable.

The true wealth
Of this world
Is within.
To find it
You need do nothing.
Close you eyes
So that you may see.
Ask God to see the Light
In your Heart.
Wait,
Accept,
Let it be.
.

Broken highways
Lead to empty dreams.
And we cannot
Feign from wondering about
What we do,
Thinking
We chase Love away.

But Truth,
If we have Faith
And face it:
We are all in poverty,
Poor in some way,
Spirit, Faith, Hope,
Love,
On what we come to believe
Is such a sad day.

magic-whales

Destinies cavernous, beautiful, unknown.

But Hope
And a wealth of Love untold,
Unfathomable to behold,
Is inscribed in Loving Ways,
Revealed in
The Holy Word,
That lay beside us
Within our reach,
In all this time,
The time of need.
.

You, my friend,
Are the Sacred Vessel of your Soul,
Beautifully expressed as light and energy,
A biological being for the Eternal Spirit
That brings what your perceive,
Is life,
And moves through you.

Within the Sacred Vessel you are,
Is and always was,
The precious Love of God,
Passed down from Heaven Above,
Imprinted upon our Heart’s desire,
To stem the ever ebbing tide
Of unending tears,
Illusory desires,
And end such suffering
As becomes unbearable,
Of so very many years.

“Nature is filled with the utmost perfection.

Utmost perfection

From the spiral center of a sunflower,
to the cracks in drying mud,
to the intricate lacing in a dragonfly wing,
there is beauty, symmetry,
and wholeness
in everything.

So too are [we] perfect,
arranged by nature
to carry us

gracefully through life.”

Beyond all and every doubt,
That you are deeply loved.

Love is not Love until the moment you accept it.

Lonely highways,
Traveling, as it were,
And may always be,
Fast and past,
Never knowing where
We are truly going,
Dotted with signs
Blurry before us,
Signs that never
Show the way.
As we travel so fast,
They cannot be read,
They are always in the past.

And so we gaze into the midnight mirror
In search of meaning.
Looking into reflections long, long gone,
Never knowing the arrow of time
Moves you in another direction, on and on,
To destinies cavernous, beautiful, unknown.

Macro-Eye

But reflections of the Heart,
Of Hope and Prayer,
Lead to abiding Love,
To being there,
To finding that which still sparkles in our dreams,
To a discovery few have known:
Heaven is within you,
You are already Home.

God is in His Heaven,
And Heaven
In your Heart.

Open this Gift,
For Love is not Love,
Until the moment
You accept it.

Frozen-Roses

Love is not in frozen flowers or smiles.
It is always fluid to the moment.
Always in motion.
Love is in the air,
On tips of wings,
In eyes of compassion,
In the smiles your Heart brings,
In tears of emotion
To flood the barren plain,
For those forgotten
Those in need,
And in tears of Thanksgiving,
Pouring down like morning rain.

As Mother Teresa accepted
The Nobel Peace Prize,
She canceled the scheduled celebratory banquet
And had the $7,000 it would have cost
Sent to her mission in Calcutta,
where it would feed 400 people for a full year.
She accepted the prize
“In the name of the hungry,
of the naked,
of the homeless,
of the blind,
of all those who feel unwanted,
unloved, uncared for”.

In a demonstration that her life’s work
transcended any single religious doctrine,
representatives of many other faiths –
Anglican, Hindu, Islamic, Sikh, Buddhist and Parsi –
Rose to offer messages and prayers
In her honor.

In the name of those who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for.

Jesus emphasized
That what flows from the Heart
Is what matters most.
We are set free to make choices
And to set others free to choose.
We are free to speak to God.
We are given freedom
To thrust aside the walls of exclusion
And give healing love
Directly to one another.

Life is a dream, realize it.

  “Truly, I say to you,
as you did it to one of the least of these
my brothers and sisters,
you did it to me”
– The Gospel of Saint Matthew 25:40

Do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car

Don’t drink water in plastic bottles left in the car either .

Benzene

Now this is very interesting! My car’s manual says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on the A/C.
WHY ?

No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before.

We wonder where this stuff comes from, but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer-causing incidents.
Many people are in their cars the first thing in the morning, and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.

As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill. Please pass this on to as many people as possible. Guess, its not too late to make some changes.

Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.
Open the windows after you enter your car and then after a couple of minutes, then turn ON the AC.

Here’s why:
According to research, the car’s dashboard, seats, a/c ducts, in fact ALL of the plastic objects in your vehicle, emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin. A BIG CARCINOGEN. Take the time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car when you open it, and BEFORE you start it up.

In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure can cause Leukemia and increases the risk of some cancers. It can also cause miscarriages in pregnant women.

The “acceptable” Benzene level indoors is: 50mg per sq.ft.
A car parked indoors, with windows closed, will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene – 8 times the acceptable level.

If parked outdoors in the sun, at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg,40 times the acceptable level.
People who get into the car, keeping the windows closed, will eventually inhale excessive amounts of the BENZENE toxin.
Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidneys and liver. What’s worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

So friends, please open the windows and doors of your car –
give it some time for the interior to air out -(dispel the deadly stuff) – before you enter the vehicle.

Thought: ‘When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.’

The most beautiful emotion we can experience
is the mysterious.
It is the power of all true art and science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead.
To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists,
manifesting itself as the highest wisdom
and the most radiant beauty,
which our dull faculties can comprehend
only in their most primitive forms
– this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center
of true religiousness.
In this sense, and in this sense only,
I belong to the rank of devoutly religious men.

– Albert Einstein 

Is It Just for the Moment We Live? / Fighting Diabetes

bleeding-hearts

Let your Heart lead the way and you’ll find Love, any day.

While attending Hardin-Simmons University,
A beautiful place of Hope, of Love, of Salvation,
I met a young lady.
She was deeply contemplative,
Very philosophical about Life,
And at such a tender age.
She gave a brief presentation,
In a public address class,
About all encompassing
Questions of Life.

The questions evolved into
A beautiful song,
Which she sang:
What’s It All About, Alfie?”

Here we find a rare display of color.

“In such times, the only true protest is beauty.” – Lucia Perry

 I felt deep inside myself
That she would find answers,
Looking with such longing
Into the eyes of her audience,
Searching the hearts of everyone Listening.

At the end
She was in tears,
And so were we.

I could see that she was
Serious,
Pleading for help,
As do we all,
For a reason for this Life,
A reason to go on.

As the lilting, beautiful song (edited) goes:

dove

I know there’s something much more.

“Is it just for the moment we live?
What’s it all about
When you sort it out,
Alfie?
Are we meant to take
More than we give?

Or are we meant to be kind?
And if only fools are kind,
Then I guess it’s wise to be cruel.

And if life belongs only to the strong,
What will you lend on an old Golden Rule?
As sure as I believe there’s a Heaven above,
I know there’s something much more,
Something even non-believers can believe in.

I believe in love,
Alfie,
Without true love
We just exist.

Until you find the love you’ve missed,
You’re nothing,
Alfie.

When you walk
Let your Heart lead the way,
And you’ll find Love
Any day,
Alfie.”
(by Burt Bacharach & Hal David)

     What’s It All About?

The prison doors of our reluctance,
Our hesitation
To ask someone,
Anyone,
For help, for guidance,
For Love,
Can become locked.

Is it just for the moment we live?

I often wondered,
But now have no doubt,
That the young Lady,
Whose life became
Such a beautiful song,
Found an answer.
For she found her voice.

Her precious Life
For a few moments,
Perhaps a lifetime,
Became a beautiful song.
She let her Heart
Lead the way,
And so can you
Find Love
Any day.

Yes. Even our counselors need Love.

And so can you find Love.

I wish I could show you,
when you are lonely,
when you are in darkness,
the astonishing light of your own being.
– Hafiz

You will never regret the compassion shown to God's other creations.

You will never regret the compassion you give to God’s other creations and to each other.

‘Til Every Thread is Torn / It’s What Is In Your Heart That Matters / Protection from Smart Meters

Amazing grace,
How sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but
  NOW I see.”

Clouds

                 Pouring down like golden honey

Across the evening sky
All the light is leaving,
Pouring down like golden honey,
With beauty so aglow
That we fall in Love,
Believing,
Not really knowing
If we are dreaming.

Kasbo echoes

     ‘Til every thread Is torn.

Our lives
Are lived in such hues,
As if what is revealed
Is real,
‘Til every thread
Is torn
From the Fabric of Living,
In a Tapestry of mind
Surreal.

So much of what we know
As life,
Is not really life at all.
But in the brevity of being,
In our believing,
Blessings abound.

Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes,
With beauty beyond
What we can behold,
Flung against the canvass
Of the evening skies,
Remind us,
The Love of God
Opens our hearts,
As we open our eyes.

Poets and writers of song
Have always known,
Always felt deeply,
In hearts taught to be
Courageous and free,
Though we may be made blind
In illusions infinite,
By the Grace of God
We can see.

                    Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes

Joni Mitchell
expresses in beautiful song:

“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know life at all.”

Is it a delusion to believe
The images in our minds
Are the real world?
Is it unlike
Our experience of it?

The concept that reality is
Only in the mind,
Is found time after time after time
In the study of Philosophy,
And the Sciences remind.

Physicist
Sir Arthur Eddington notable said,
“Matter is mostly ghostly empty space.”
To be more precise,
it is 99.9999999% empty space.

My friends,
We faint and flickering
Shadows and shades
Are almost non-existent.
Matter, of which we are made,
Is coming into and out of existence
Billions of times each second.

Your reality, which includes you,
Is blinking constantly on and off at all times.
Quantum physics has left scientists
All over the world

Baffled,
Especially with the discovery
That our physical material reality,

Isn’t really physical at all. 

Our human brain is designed
By natural experience (in order to survive),
To sense the “on” frequency.
Just as quickly, it blinks “off,”
And everything, including you, disappears.
However, your brain registers and connects only
The “on” segments,
And thus you have the sense

Or feeling of your reality being solid.
What quantum mechanics reveals
Is that there is NO true “physicality” in the universe.

     We faint and flickering shadows and shades . . .

Quantum theory predicts
That every particle spends some time
As a combination of other particles
In all possible ways.
These predictions (read more)
Are very well understood and tested.
Yes my friends,
We are truly ONE
With the Universe,
With each other,
With God.

“We don’t know what matter is
anymore than we know
what mind is.”
Christian de Quincy,
The Paradox of Consciousness

We have discovered in quantum physics
Even subatomic particles
Are far, far from solid.
They are nothing like matter
As we think we know it.
These particles, of which we are made,
Can never be precisely measured.
And they are everywhere,
Everywhere,
In the same moment,
Until observed.

Religion incorporates transcendent, immanent
Omnipresence.
The Divine is everywhere.
The property of being present everywhere
Defines a universal and fundamental substance,
Which is the source of all existence.
God is omnipresent in a way
That He is able to interact with His

Divine Creations,
With you,
Child of God.

Our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all.

“Behold, heaven and the highest heaven
cannot contain you,
how much less this house which I have built!
– 1 Kings 8:27

Plato believed
The real world
Was a world of ideas
And
Eternal perfect forms.
Is it?

Particles are,
We are,
Clouds of potential existence,
With no definite location.
Whatever matter is,
It has little,
If any,
Substance.

“We don’t know a millionth
of one percent
about anything.
– Thomas Edison

Our idea of matter
As solid, as substance,
Is a quality appearing
ONLY in our consciousness.
It models what is real,
But is unlike
What is really,
Or, perhaps,
Not really,

There.

German philosopher Immanuel Kant
Posited that time and space
Are not inherent qualities of the physical world;
They are a reflection
Of the way
Our mind operates.

angeleyes

We are the creators of the world we experience.

And so,
We are NOT passive experiencers of the world;
We are the creators
Of the world we experience.
We, my friends,
Are Children of God,
And firmly at the center of things.
The Earth is not
At the center of the Universe,
But WE are.

Human Thought Determines Reality.

Early in the 1900’s it was proven
Beyond a shadow of a doubt
With an experiment called
The double slit experiment.
They found the determining factor
Of the behavior of energy (particles)
At the quantum level,
Is the awareness
Of the observer. (read more)

Literature,
Throughout the world,
Of a Spiritual nature,
Proclaims that the whole world
Is within.

Eyes in cloud

We are truly ONE with the Universe, with each other, with God.

The question of God’s existence
Is the most important question
Of human philosophy.
One chooses either a self existent God
Or a self existent universe,
And the universe is not behaving
As if it is self existent.

According to the second law of thermodynamics,
The universe is running down like a clock,
Cooling off like a giant stove. (read more)

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are merging,
Becoming one.
Not as antithetically opposed
As we may believe.
Our discoveries suggests
A far, far more enlightening meaning
To this marriage.

Not just academic,
Not just philosophical,
But personal, practical, meaningful.
And as we think upon these things,
As best we can,
We become Blessed to realize:

“Those who dwell in the beauty
And the mystery of life
Are never lonely.”

BeautifulSky

The Earth is not at the center of the Universe, but WE are.

In our human affairs
We live our lives
As if the material world
Is the fundamental reality.
And in this consciousness
Lay the root of our discontent,
Our misery,
Our unquenchable thirst.

My friends,
We are losing our humanity,
Not knowing
We are far, far more
Than human.

The human spirit
Is the very essence of life

In a human being.
And knowledge of this can amplify
The joy of living,
And bring about Spiritual freedom.

You are a spiritual being having a human experience.

Your infinite capacity
To create, to love, to dream, to forgive
And to be aware that you are far, far more
Than you can ever imagine,
Ultimately defines what it means to be human.
You are the most beautiful and miraculous Creation
In the Universe.
And you are Eternal.

What is missing,
Disappearing from life,
Is the most exciting, wonderful, exhilarating
Discovery of all:
When we Love someone,
And finally come to know
We are deeply Loved,
God enters our hearts,
And what is dreamed
Becomes forever real.

We, my friends, are Children of God.
