Treasure The Light / Terrible Chemicals Coming Back / Friday: Japanese Garden

Let us treasure
the Light,
and not give reality
to the shadow.

           Treasure the Light.

We long for Love
and Light.

Dark the dreams
that lie behind
the broken door of a Heart
will think
will beat no more,
for those we failed
to Love,
or never Loved
before.

Yes,
the illusions of Life
cry little pity
without the Joy
of Love.

arms outstretched

You take farewell of the Glorious Sun that shines from within.

When sorrow
gathers all about you,
and you take farewell
of the Glorious Sun
that shines from within,
and from Above,
backlit by the past,
the atmosphere that clouds
this day,
is silhouetted like
a luminous halo.

But,
with fervent Prayer
and abiding Trust in God,
you can feel
a new tomorrow,
a beautiful new dawn
coming your way.

“Everybody’s talking at me
I don’t hear a word they’re saying,
only the echoes of my mind.
People stopping, staring,
I can’t see their faces,
only the shadows of their eyes.
I’m going
where the Sun keeps shining,

through the pouring rain.”
– Harry Nilsson

A constant shadow
lies across nevermore,
cast by what we dare not
dream today.
A mist
rolls across the eyes,
when Love’s obscured or dies.
But we can come to realize,
the unbelievable Beauty of our Life
cannot be denied.

With Prayer and Trust in God.

Flowers
grow for the comfort
of Mankind.
They invite us
to grasp wild every blossom,
to give and share,
and tell evermore
of our Love
that blossomed like those
now in hand.

john“I can’t be contented
with yesterday’s glory.

I can’t live on promises
Winter to Spring.

Today is my moment,
now is my story,

I’ll laugh and I’ll cry
and I’ll sing
– John Denver

We are not here
to learn some trigonometric equation
that may soon be forgotten
or never used.
We are here to study
the Geometry
of the Human Heart,
the capacity to Forgive,
the acceptance of Love.

My Dear Friends,
you can waste a lifetime
repressing the Truth
you envisioned as a Child.

“Deep in December,
it’s nice to remember,

although you know
the snow will follow.

Deep in December,
it’s nice to remember,

without a hurt
the Heart is hollow.”
– Tom Jones

   The Beautiful Heavens Above.

But you can never forget
all the Joy
that was yours today.
You shall never regret
the Divine Love
you feel
as you see a new Tomorrow
coming your way.
.

“At the end of a river
the water stops its flow.
At the end of a highway
there’s no place you can go.
But just tell me you Love me,
and you are only mine,
and our Love will go on
till the end of time.”
– Sid Jacobson
.

Your Father,
in the Beautiful Heavens Above,
has loved you more Dearly
than words can tell.
For you are
His
Beautiful Child.

            He’s going your way.

God’s Heart is always full of tears
at the thought of Love’s farewell.
The precious Gift of His Love
is
THIS moment

of your Life,
the time He Lovingly
gives to you.

Please remember,
wherever you’re going,
My Friend,

He’s going your way.

Purity of youth
and the purity of the Spirit
were memorable expressions
of the precious time
when we were children.
But the deeper meaning,
is still undisclosed
to you and me.

In a blinding moment of clarity.

As a fragile
and deeply Loved Human Being,
we can come to realize
the magnitude of what it means to be
a child again,
a Child of God.

This feeling is profound
and defies definition.
And it is expressed only
by the Human Heart.

Yes,
in a blinding moment of clarity,
you can come to truly see
what it means
to be deeply Loved,
like a Child again.

 The unbelievable Beauty of our Life.

“It is here we must begin to seek
the wisdom of the Children

and the graceful way of Flowers
in the Wind.

Goodnight.

You are His Beautiful Child.

Every Terrible Chemical
We Ever Used
Is Waiting To Come Back At Us.

At least we’ve learned from the past. CFCs, DDTs, POPs, and other terrifying chemical acronyms have been banned for decades. The planet barely survived their usage, but we did it! It’s over! The end!

Actually, it’s more like “The End?”
And now we’re set up for the hard-hitting sequel.

You know what’s great at storing harmful chemicals? Polar ice. That was all well and good by society for a time. (Eat it, Nanook. Move to the city and get a real job!) But now, global warming is melting that ice and releasing all those chemicals at once …

NASA/Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio
… It’s like society’s literal karma, coming back to punish us for past sins.

Most worrying are the persistent organic pollutants – organic chemicals we stuffed into just about everything until we found out they give cancer to anything they touch. They’ve been showing up in plants and animals again lately, trickling out of melting glaciers and into the natural environment.

So if you see this sign or any others like it,
listen.

Then there’s DDT, an insecticide that was banned in the ’70s due to its poisonous effect on birds. And though we haven’t used it in decades, it’s showing up again in Antarctic penguins, thanks to the retreating ice caps. That’s right, penguins. The butlers of the snow.

Good God,
what have we done?

“In such ugly times,
the only true protest
is Beauty.”

– Lucia Perry
