The One We Are / Protect Yourself from Radio-frequency Radiation / Friday: Texas Storytelling Festival (Denton)

On
the fevered brow
of our Mother,
this beautiful Earth,
we can place
the calming, cooling
Hand
of our felt Compassion
for one another.

Often,
the only Light
one can see
in the darkness
of the shadows cast over
our Home
by you and me,
is a tiny spark,
emanating from a Love
that can engulf our
whole World,
and Light the
Way.

In the darkness of the shadows.

Life
is a Love Story,
or it becomes
nothing at all.

Hope
is a Heartbeat.
One beat
of the Human Heart.
But,
if it does not
beat for another,
it may not be beating
at all.

                   We need see but one.

Billions of diamonds
cover the ring
that weds us
to this Earth.
And we need see
but one,
the one we are,
to remind us
of the deep,
abiding need
for Her
Love.

“I’ve stumbled on the side
of twelve misty mountains.
I’ve walked and I crawled
on six crooked highways.
I’ve stepped in the middle
of seven sad forests.
I’ve been out in front
of a dozen dead oceans.
I’ve been ten thousand miles
in the mouth of a
graveyard.

And it’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.”
– Bob Dylan

The hardest thing
is to say
goodbye,
goodbye to everything,
everything that is not
Love.
.
But we suddenly realize,
Love is
everything,
and Love is a Gift
from our Father
above,
and Love,
Love is God.
And YOU
are His Child,
a Child of Love,
a Child
of God.
.
“Love is the fundamental essence
of His nature and character
– His very Being.
God is perfect in Love.
God’s Love is manifested
by His absolutely pure desire
to care for, share and give.”
Steve Moody

.
Love
of Life,
is the Life
we give to
Love.
.
The Sun
that rises,
is the same Sun
that sets.
The God
of our Fathers and of our Mothers,
is the God
of our Sons
and our Daughters.
You cannot bury
the Dream
we are.
You cannot ferry
the Love of God
across a River
of no return.
.
“You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

.
Every Spark
of our Compassion
becomes
an Eternal Flame.
Every act
of Kindness
remains the
same.

“Without saying a word,
you can Light up the
dark.
Try as I may
I could never explain.

What I hear
when you don’t say a thing.

You say it best,
when you say
nothing at all.”

Paul Overstreet, Don Schlitz

My Dear Friends,
we are so much MORE,
and in so being,
so much LESS,
than what we perceive ourselves to be.
Philosophers of the past were right,
our senses really do deceive us.

We have been told
our reality is made up of
physical material things
and that our world
is independently existing
and objective.

But quantum physics tell us
is that there is no true
“physicality”
in the Universe.

Atoms are made of focused
vorticies of energy
– miniature tornadoes,
constantly spinning and vibrating
and popping into and out of existence
billions of times each second.

We are made
of atoms.

We are
pure energy,
pure Love.
Each of us
is a Child
of Love,
a Child of
God.

Goodnight.

Here’s what you can do
to protect yourself from potential harm from
radio-frequency radiation:

1. Always use a hands-free headset or the speakerphone setting when talking on your cell phone. Some researchers say a wired headset, especially a “hollow tube” headset you can special-order—which will be labeled as such and uses hollow tubes rather than wires to conduct sound—is the best. But even a Bluetooth wireless headset will reduce your radio-frequency radiation exposure by several thousandfold.

2. Keep the phone off your body. Carry your phone in a purse or bag with the antenna (back of the phone) pointed away from you, not in your pocket or bra. When you’re talking on it (with a headset or on speakerphone) put it on a table in front of you. Just a few inches can substantially reduce your radiation exposure.

3. Text instead of talking. Holding your cell phone away from your head to send text messages exposes you to less radiation than talking on it without a headset.

4. Turn it off. Phones only emit radio-frequency radiation when they’re searching for or receiving a signal, so a phone that’s off or in “airplane mode” is safe.

5. Replace cordless phones with corded models. Cordless phones can emit as much radiation as cell phones, and the charging station constantly emits radiation.

6. Use a low-radiation cell phone. Unless you live in San Francisco, cell phone retailers aren’t required to display the specific absorbency rate (SAR), or the amount of radiation a phone causes your body to absorb. Search FCC.gov/cgb/sar to find out the SAR level of your model, or consult the Environmental Working Group’s online database: EWG.org/cellphones. But no matter how low the SAR of your phone is, it’s still important the phone away from your head and body whenever possible.

7. Keep your cell phone, cordless phone, and wireless modem away from your head. All three will expose you to radio-frequency radiation, so banish all three from the bedroom or, at least, keep them away from your head and body. If you must have wireless Internet, turn off your router when you’re not using it, especially at night—a power strip with a timer can help.

8. Keep your phone fully charged. When a cell phone’s signal strength is weak or blocked, it has to work harder—and consequently emits more radiation.

9. Be wary of devices that claim to block EMF exposure. A Google search yielded 236,000 results for “EMF protection,” most of which were sites selling “protective” devices ranging from pendants and crystals to microchips and herbal remedies. Most experts agree that many are based on quasi-science and there’s no evidence that they work. Some “EMF shields” for your phone can actually increase the amount of radiation that it emits, since they block the signal and the phone has to work harder.

10. Don’t give cell phones to young children as toys or pacifiers. If you occasionally let your small tot play Pac-Man on your cell phone, put it into “airplane mode” so it won’t search for a signal – which means it won’t emit radiation.

11. Take care with older children. Children are more susceptible to potential harm from radio-frequency radiation than adults. If you give your children a cell phone for safety reasons, also give them a headset and encourage them to text or use the speakerphone instead of putting the phone close to their heads.

The Greatest Gift / Flowers Watered by Tears

“You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

We do not know
if in Life
we dream,
or if our dreams
are real,
and they dream us.

But we do know
if Love is planted,
even in a shallow way,
its roots will deep entwine
and one day
find
YOU.

Those in Love
are never apart.
What you feel
will never depart.

      Give them the lingering Sunsets.

If you have been
the only one
you are thinking of,
try to cast away
your mask of clay,
and come to realize
you were never
all there was
to be.

My Friends,
do not
just leave your children
in your will.
Leave them the will
to Love and Live.
Give them the lingering Sunsets
of your precious smiles,
the ability to walk
in your shoes
for many, many miles,
and the memories
of moments past,
that last
and last
and last.

Memories of moments past.

Children live
in a natural state of wonder.
They pay attention
to every detail of
Life and Living.

What fascinates you about life?
If nothing,
then you are living,
but not alive.

My Dear Friends,
truly fascinating things are constantly happening.
Every day,
every moment of every hour.
Pay attention
to everyone and everything
around you.
Your trip
to the grocery store
will only keep you alive.
It is not
Life!
The errand you are running,
is running you.
The time you waste,
is never wasted.

Put down the telephone.
Turn off the addictive
television.
Turn your gaze away
from cold, unfeeling sights.
Go outside.
This is your HOME.

Wander aimlessly.
Listen intently.
God
in His Wisdom,
is calling your name.
A songbird
sings it,
over and over again.

Let a flower
pick you.
Give it
to someone
in need of Love.

            Let a flower pick you.

There are many,
walking barefoot by a lonely river
of tears,
near a grave
to be.

Human nature
is God’s Love
in you and me.

Yes.
A fascinating mystery of Life
walked right by you.
Did you notice?
Did you look closely?

                       This is your home.

You cannot be Loved,
if you do
look
for someone to Love.
Flowers
just gather in the wind,
until you worship them,
and kneel,
and bring them home,
and thank Almighty God
for saying
Hello.

He
did not pass you by.
His Love was gently
waving in the
breeze.

“Let your mind start a journey
through a strange new world.

Leave all thoughts
of the world you knew before.

Let your Soul take you
where you long to be.”
– Andrew Lloyd Webber

How can you turn your nature
into the Human nature
it longs to be?

Most of the things
we pay attention to
are illusions.
They do not teach us
anything.

                                   Did you notice?

Become as a Child again.
Be Fascinated with everyone
and every Living thing.

“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying,
“Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them,
and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
Whoever humbles himself like this child,
he is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.”
– Matthew 18:1-4

Thank God
for the fascinating mystery of Life
that is
YOU.

Your Life
begins again,
every day you realize
you are alive,
you are Loved
and in Love
with everyone and living thing.

The greatest Gift
is
knowing.

Goodnight.

“Where love is planted
oh there it grows It grows
and blossoms like a rose.
It has a sweet and pleasant smell
No flower on Earth can it excel.”
– traditional Folk Music

“While on my lonely couch I lie,
I seldom feel myself alone,
For fancy fills my dreaming eye
With scenes and pleasures of its own.
Then I may cherish at my breast
An infant’s form beloved and fair,
May smile and soothe it into rest
With all a Mother’s fondest care.

How sweet to feel its helpless form
Depending thus on me alone!
And while I hold it safe and warm
What bliss to think it is my own!

And glances then may meet my eyes
That daylight never showed to me;
What raptures in my bosom rise,
Those earnest looks of Love to see,

To feel my hand so kindly prest,
To know myself beloved at last,
To think my heart has found a rest,
My life of solitude is past!

But then to wake and find it flown,
The dream of happiness destroyed,
To find myself unloved, alone,
What tongue can speak the dreary void?

A heart whence warm affections flow,
Creator, thou hast given to me,
And am I only thus to know
How sweet the joys of Love would be?”
– Anne Brontë

The next time you lift a glass or a can filled with so much regret, so much unbearable pain, so much loss of life and precious love, say a prayer for the now nameless millions who have gone before you and left behind a landscape that resembles nothing but misery and death.

Please remember that as you wander further and further down into this valley of the shadow of death, you are taking your loved ones with you. Alcoholism is not a singular disease. It is always accompanied by other victims. It is a social disorder on a magnitude and scale that defies definition. It envelopes and destroys entire families, your other loved ones and friends, and frequently, many others that were simply going down the highway at the same time. Each year the number is in the millions. But the numbers do not matter as much as you do. They are insignificant to those who love you, if you drown in the sea of apathy and alcohol.

The consumption of alcohol frequently leads to a portrait drawn of the loneliest place on earth, a graveyard. And the flowers, yes, those flowers, are not what they seem. They are watered by the tears of the deeply loved and lost. They never blossom in the warm sunlight of tomorrow. They died. Their lives were stolen, along with all the precious dreams.
