When I Don’t Know, Is Knowing / The Art of Now / Important Dates

Image

The answers
to many of Life’s questions
have become so evident,
that they became
obscure.

star

          How near the Truth is.

Some evenings
find us
staring at a Star,
wondering
who we are,
seeking answers from
Afar,
never knowing
how near the Truth is
to where we are.

     More than the most beautiful.

Faith
is not just Believing.
It is without a doubt,
knowing.

 Jesus said to them,
Truly I say to you, if you have Faith,
and do not doubt,
you shall not only do what was done to the fig tree,
but even if you say to this mountain,
‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’
it shall happen.
And all things you ask in prayer,
Believing,
you shall receive.”
– Matthew 21:20–22

Faith,
My Dear Friends,
is beyond believing.
It is not just believing,
but,
when I don’t know,
is knowing.

Faith
is more than
the most beautiful
element of Creation,
it is Creation.
Faith
is what Dreams
may Come.

mt-reflection

     A reflection of His Faith.

Faith
is the Miracle
of knowing.
And Faith
is the Miracle of knowing
that everything is
a Gift,
and that every Gift
is from God.

It is knowing that the Life
gifted to us from God,
is an Act of Faith
in us.

interior-b

Without Faith
nothing,
and no one,
would exist.

Yes,
your existence
is a powerful statement
of Faith.
For Faith
becomes us.
It is us.

Our Faith in God
is a reflection
of His Faith
in His beautiful Creation.

Without Faith nothing would exist.

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.

sun-streaks-good-b

You are not alone in your thoughts and feelings.

If you observed
the composition of an atom
with a very powerful microscope,
you would see a small, invisible
tornado like vortex,
with a number of infinitely small energy vortices.
These make up the structure of the
atom.

And if you focused in much closer
on the structure of the atom,
you would see nothing,
you would observe a physical
void.

The atom has no physical structure.
Which means
that we have no physical structure.
What we think of as physical things
do not have any physical structure!

Atoms (and WE)
are made out of invisible energy,
not matter.

Thought is real, physical is the Illusion.

The Universe
is not an assembly of physical parts.

Instead, our Universe
comes from a holistic entanglement
of immaterial energy waves.
This discovery stems from the work
of Albert Einstein, Max Planck,
and Werner Heisenberg,
and others.

And what does it mean
that our physical material reality
isn’t really physical at all?

It means,
My Dear Friends,
we are Spiritual Beings,
filled with energy.

And,
as observers,
we are involved with
the Creation of our own
reality.
Our minds
create the illusion
of physical reality.

Everything that exists is Thought.

Physicists now admit
that the Universe is
a “mental” construction
of consciousness.

“The stream of knowledge
is heading toward a non-mechanical reality;
the Universe begins to look
more like a great THOUGHT
than like a great machine.”
Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans

But we have Faith
in the illusion of our
physical being,
rather than
our real Spiritual selves.

“Mind no longer appears
to be an accidental intruder
into the realm of matter,
we ought rather hail it as the creator
and governor of the realm of matter.”

– R. C. Henry, “The Mental Universe”; Nature

Everything that exists
is Thought
in the mind of God.
Everything that is,
will and has ever existed,
is because of the thoughts
in the mind of our Father
in Heaven Above.

beach-and-moon-c

The Universe is a “mental” construction.

Life is much more complex
than we can ever imagine.
Our thoughts are limited
by being confined in a Human body.
We are unable to see
other realms and dimensions
of reality.
We are Spiritual Beings
in sufferance of having
a Human experience.

Everything
is a thought
from the mind of
God.

You,
My Precious Friend,
are not alone
in your thoughts and feelings.
For God is with you,
always.

A Flowering Future you have not dreamed of.

My Dear Parents,
place your Faith in God.
And put your Faith
in His Beautiful Creations,
His Blessed Gifts,
His Children
that come through us.

And your Faith
will blossom into the Beauty
of a Flowering Future
you have not dreamed of –
into Children of Faith
empowered by
the Holy Spirit.

rose-on-book

For the greater good of all Mankind.

Yes,
one day your Child grows
and is filled with Faith
and the Love of God,
and yours.

And will your Child
always uphold your Faith?
No.
You had a Human Child.
But remember,
you are Human too.
And Faith and Forgiveness
go hand in hand.
One is the Flower,
the other
the ground
in which it grows.

Without Faith
there is no Vision,
and no common Vision
for the greater good
of all Mankind.

Goodnight

“The function of prayer soren
is not to influence God,
but rather to change the nature
of the one who Prays.”

Six Steps to Living in the Moment

“We’re living in a world
that contributes in a major way
to mental fragmentation, disintegration,
distraction, decoherence,”
– B. Alan Wallace

1. To improve your performance, stop thinking about it (unselfconsciousness).

2. To avoid worrying about the future, focus on the present (savoring).

3. If you want a future with your significant other, inhabit the present (breathe).

4. To make the most of time, lose track of it (flow).

5. If something is bothering you, move toward it rather than away from it (acceptance).

6. Know that you don’t know (engagement).

Island of Dreams / Movie: Dolphin Tail 2 and Bookstore

for
LeVonna,
who pours the gift of her life
into the Beautiful Vessels of God’s Creative Love
– Precious Children from Heaven Above.

And for
You.


It is so very hard to shape how you feel,
to build a pathway home,

With the paving stones of words.
– Wm. C. Anderson

Island of Dreams
                            – Wm. C. Anderson

From the impossibility of coming
From nothing, it seems
We have risen to a vision
Of unbelievably beautiful dreams.

Spun from the Fabric
Of God’s Eternal Love,
Filled with His Very Own Breath,
Shaped by Desire from Above.

The Tapestry of what is
So radiantly beautiful to see,
Is the Glory of God’s Love,
Woven into you and me.

Now we dwell in the Shadow
Of Everlasting Grace,
And feel the warmth of His Sun,
Like the Breath of Life upon your face.

But when we are through being born,
When this life surrenders us to Love,
One Light shall pierce the darkest night,
A Light from Heaven Above.

And no time will there be for silence.
Someone sings for you and for me,

Sounds of Pure Joy that resonate
In Songs of Love and cherished memory.

And when we drift so very, very far from shore,
And chisel stones to throw at memory,

By countless acts of loving and forgiving,
We skip them over the sparkling waters to be.

Deftly they touch the surface of the past,
Pulsating like the beat of a new born heart,
As God’s Love is Birth Infinity,
Ever here to begin again, again to start.

Guided by such Love given you and me,
We shall not lie afraid in the dark,
For we are held in the Warm Embrace of God,
And alive in each others heart.

God fills the midnight of the Soul,
And in the endlessness of time it seems,
We will, one day, meet again,
On His beautiful Island of Dreams.

Amen.

A new study – the biggest of its kind – is warning
that our love affair with sugary food and drink
is doubling our risk of heart related premature death.

I was proud of Gavin today. When informed of the risks, he changed his order from a sugary drink to sugar-free ice tea (an excellent source for antioxidant nutrition). Gavin increased his chances of not dying from heart disease by over 100%.

Parents, please give your child the information needed to avoid unbelievable suffering (sugar feeds cancer and causes numerous other serious health problems, like diabetes) and a premature death. Armed with knowledge, they will choose wisely.

Ignorance is a truly deadly commodity.

We have had a wonderful first week of school. Our trip to Main Event provided fun for everyone and a great end to the week. Students are now planning other adventures and helping to decided where we will go this coming semester.

“I have a theory that people who are addicted to reading
are trying to re-create the joy of being read to as a child by a parent. Being read to as a child is one of the great experiences in life.”
– Billy Collins, Poet in Paris Review
