Simple Gifts

“Its a gift to be simple.
Its a gift to be free.

It’s the gift to come down
where you ought to be.

And when we find ourselves
in the place just right,

We’ll be in the valley
of Love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
to bow and to bend,
we will not be ashamed.

To turn, turn, will be our delight,
till by turning, turning
we come round right.”
– Joseph Brackett

The shape of things
to come
is never what we think,
not what we dream,
not even
what we
are able to imagine.

For tomorrow
lies not
within the plane
of our reality,
the subtle state of our consciousness
that transcends the known physical Universe.
It lies not within dimensions
known today.

The dynamic force
of our awareness
is being sent forth,
like waves in a vast ocean,
through time as we know it,
manifesting all things
we imagine
and culminating in the Universe
we treasure and desire.

Such is Love
in you.

But we may not dwell
within any tomorrow,
if our humanity,
our Love for one another,
self-destructs.
We will not be here
to be aware.

sunset-maroon-b

                  Look beyond

Of things unknowable
we cannot know.
But
we can become aware:

We can come to know
that we can never know.

And this
is an aspect of
Infinity.
For the Infinite
is far beyond
what we are capable
of ever comprehending.

We are finite
and very fragile,
enveloped within Infinite Love,
possibly impossible,
relative to the
irrational,
and Beautiful beyond
Belief.

Beyond illusions of Life and living.

Much,
if not most,
of what Mankind
has created,
is a feeble attempt
to fit a distorted reality
of our own making
into the shape
of what we envision
for tomorrow.

And tomorrow
may no longer be found
under the shade
of any tree
planted today
that worships
the winds
of such change.

picture of happy mother with baby over white

Only in the mysterious equations of Love.

The collective conscience
of Mankind
is accelerating in thought,
as it recklessly races
toward,
not just an uncertain future,
but what we cannot
envision or imagine.

My Dear Friends,
how do we
prepare our precious Children
for the unknown
and the unknowable?
To what end
do we strive?

What now
is our goal in Life
for them?

sunbeam-b

       Beautiful beyond belief.

Perhaps,
we should foster
an acceptance
of our limitations.

Perhaps.

I believe,
we should look
within ourselves,
beyond illusions
of Life
and living.

Ultimately,
it’s not what we make of us
that takes us,
it’s what takes us
beyond us.

Can you see
the Universe
in a drop of rain?
Can you find
what outwardly you seek,
by not looking
within?

and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to

     Look far beyond ourselves.

Perhaps,
we should close our tired eyes
and look
far beyond ourselves.

My Dear Friends,
lay your weary head
upon your pillow.
Feel the warmth
of beautiful moments remembered.
Hear the whisper
of the raindrops
blowing soft
across the window.

Listen carefully,
and you will hear
echoes reflected off the walls
of your treasured memories
kept deeply hidden
in the Heart.

See
what only Hearts
can see.

Walking barefoot by a stream.

– Neil Diamond

What we may not
always comprehend
is part
of what is truly Beautiful.
The Mysterious
may always remain
within realms unknown
and unknowable,
as it takes our breath away
with its Beauty.

Such is
the Love of God,
so far beyond
what we will ever
truly know.

Such is the
Spiritual.

Such is the Love
hidden deep
in your Heart.

“I ask nash
What truly is logic?
Who decides reason?
My quest has taken me
to the physical,
the metaphysical, the delusional,
and back.
I have made
the most important discovery
of my career –
the most important discovery of my life.
It is only in the mysterious equations
of Love
that any logic or reasons
can be found.”
– John Forbes Nash

The most mysterious thing
our minds can
entertain,
is the Love of God.
for us.

The Beauty of Love
draws us in,
to lead us
toward ourselves.

It causes us
to reflect and to dream,
and for a few precious moments,
see with our Hearts
what lies
beyond even tomorrow,
to finally realize
the Divine Reality
that dwells
within.

We are the Dream
too long
afraid of waking.

Goodnight.

light-c“I’ll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again
We’ll sail on the sun, we’ll ride on the rain
We’ll talk to the trees that worship the wind.
– Neil Diamond

My Dear Friends,
negative emotions are completely useless.
Resentment, bitterness, hate, and jealousy
have never improved
the quality of life
for even one single
human being.

Never.

Cruciferous Vegetables Promote Healthy DNA

Laboratory experiments offer evidence that cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and kale – help preserve the integrity of DNA. As a vital cell component, DNA is highly vulnerable to damage.

Broccoli, watercress, and rosemary provide bioactive compounds, including glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid, and carnosol, that have a multitude of favorable effects on DNA and healthy cell division.

Curcumin: The Workhorse of Cellular Health

Curcumin’s benefits are so diverse that they affect virtually every system in the body. It’s no accident that the National Institutes of Health has funded numerous studies investigating curcumin as a treatment for diseases from cystic fibrosis to autoimmune diseases to various cancers.

“Curcumin has emerged as one of the most powerful chemopreventive and anticancer agents,” wrote researchers last year. “Its biological effects range from antioxidant and anti-inflammatory to inhibition of angiogenesis, and it is also shown to possess specific anti-tumor activity.”

A Deepening Sea, Widening Sky / List of Human Carcinogens (Knowledge for Life)

“Parents often talk about
the younger generation
as if they
didn’t have anything
to do with it.”

Dr. Haim Ginott

We stand on the edge of a deepening sea, widening sky.

Deep and abiding reflection
can become the beginning
of a conversation
with someone
you may have never met,
someone
you thought
you really knew,
a person
you did not know
was you.

My Dear Friends,
we stand on the very edge
of a deepening sea, widening sky,
as our precious Hearts whisper,
longing to send
an Infinite message of Life and Love,
to paint a Rainbow
without any end.

poles of earth

The boundary between
what is real
and what we dream,
what we can imagine,
is more porous
than it may seem.

The science fiction,
the fantasy
of what WE now can create,
will ask no less of us
than to suspend Belief
in ourselves and in each other,
in the future of Life
condemned to be brief.

“Somewhat ironically, science,
having set out to know
the ultimate nature of reality,

is discovering that,
not only is this world

beyond any direct experience,
it may also be inherently
unknowable.”

– Peter Russell

-01-a-web

All probabilities may ALL exist at once.

Strange discoveries,
fantastical worlds of imagination,
will force the question
of basic Beliefs
about Life,
about Love,
about our Blessings
from Above.

Scientists at NASA have substantiated thatsmall_web
matter can indeed be in two places at once.
Quantum entanglement enables
particles millions of light-years apart
to be connected without physical contact.
Space-time can now be controlled;
teleportation is becoming a reality;
and virtual science has led us
closer to realizing
hyper-dimensional existence.
If you think
these are God like qualities,
you are right.
And they are being contemplated
by Children of God.

a-webBut,
no matter how far apart we are,
Hearts have always known
they are connected
in a very real way.

“I’d bring out my guitar
and a lot of those things
that made you feel apart
or distant,
disappeared.”

“You call all the stars by their names, O Lord, and yet you care for me.”                     – Betty H. Butler

But, the implausible,
the improbable,
the unbelievable,
can bring Life
to an end.

What once was purely
Philosophical,
lurks darkly in a new book
of Revelations,
of quantum research.

All probabilities
may ALL exist
at once,
buried in the same reality,
until measured or observed.
Mathematicians can prove it.
But,
My Dear Friends,
so can our
Love,
which can become truly
immeasurable,
like the Love
of God.

Out of nowhere
I heard a voice saying,
“Because I Love you”.
Lene Jeanette Taralrud

Like clouds
flying across the sky,
shadows of insight and awareness
can shade the reality
in your eyes.
What the mind of man
can imagine,
he can now make.
But what is
the Human cost?
What will it
take?

rainbow

    A Rainbow without any end.

We possess the art of engineering
the science of quantum change
and of physical reality itself,
to make the unreal
as real,
to bring Life
to the very edge
of never asking why,
to the bottom
of an infinitely deep sea,
or an ever widening
Sky.
It is up to you
and I,
and the question
we need to ask:

Why?

pattern

The mind of man
can climb any mountain
of Everestian heights,
cross any ocean
of uncharted depths,
redefine what we see,
what may
or may not be,
which is you
and me.

While triumphant we may feel,
believing in something implausible,
something unreal made real,
we may cause blades of grass
to encircle virtually unreal
pure white stones,
grass ever green
that grows beneath
names never made known.
And no one will ever knell
at the foot
of these graves
to extol the virtues
of those extant,
who belied Belief
in proclamations of proclivities
to do what became wrong,
diverse and strong,
simply because we could.
No one will shout
from any mountain top
“Once we
were here,
and now
we are ALL
gone.”

Brix

       We miss you Brix.

Down the mountain side
we will fall
into a valley hushed
and white with snow.
No one will be here
in sunshine to tell
of our journey upward,
with sweeter songs
that accompanied us.
For what was unknown
became real,
and what then was real
became, with us,
unknown:
a potential existence
that stilled every voice
that sang every song.

“But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and EVIL,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof,
thou shalt surely
die.”

– Genesis 2:17

Life
without the deep and abiding
reflection of Love,
simply
cannot exist,
cannot prevail.

kawalows

The deep and abiding reflection of Love.

Unknowing
becomes known
because you exist.
But you are here
because of the
Love
that also existed.

Time is not
a natural feature
of our universe.
It is a concept
invented by us,
we so human in being.

There is no past behind us,
or physical future waiting
in the wings.

Nature
does not defend
the right to cry.
But cry we do
late into our night.
For the reality
of being
resides within each
Heart.
And so it was,
and always has
been.

Cherish the mind
that has a Heart.

Goodnight.

“Little Fly,
Thy summer’s play
My thoughtless hand
Has brushed away.
Am I not like thee?
Or art not thou A man like Me?
For I dance and drink and sing,
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.”
– William Blake

The very edge of never asking why.

My Precious Friends,
I wish to share with you
an unbelievably LENGTHY list of
KNOWN and POSSIBLE
things that cause CANCER.
Please take the time to study this list!
We are at war with ourselves.
Yes,
the enemy is us.
Our lifestyle and
our society
and corporate greed
have caused this
horrendous condition.

We can look down
on the pathetic depths
to which corporate America
has led us in order to
make money.

But enough
is enough.

Millions of our Loved ones,
neighbors,
and fellow citizens
have perished in misery.

Please ARM yourself
with the knowledge
you and your precious children
NEED to survive.

Compare these two lists
with the labels on the products
you wear, drive with, eat,
sleep and sit on, breathe, live and work with,
allow into your home, on your yard or
in your car –
anywhere in your presence.

When you find items made with
these horrible products
THROW  THEM  AWAY!

There is NO need to die a
miserable and painful death.

To avoid a future far worse
than you can imagine,
get smart, get educated, get busy, get involved and
read ALL the labels.
You have the strength and wisdom
to get rid of the garbage
polluting your life
and the very precious
life of your child.

With every moment you take
to read every line below
you are saying:
I LOVE YOU.

You cannot Love someone more
than when you save that person’s
Life.

From Danica Collins with the Underground Health Reporter:  read more
The 17th Century Ushered in Cancer. It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature – such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies—and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

The food you eat … the air you breathe … the clothes you wear … the water you drink … the personal care products you use … the medications you take … the water you bathe in … virtually everything you consume, and everything you do – or are exposed to – causes cancer these days!
Here are Just a Few Factors Present in  Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
Genetically modified food
Most laundry detergents
Commercial hair dyes
Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein)
Granite countertops (which emit radon)
Rancid peanuts and seeds
Canola oil
Canned tomatoes
Food laced with pesticides
Chemicals from aerosol cans
Mammograms
X-Rays
Food microwaved in plastic containers (including
plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen
TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and
formaldehyde)

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
“There is Nothing in the Natural Environment That Can Cause Cancer … So It Has to Be a Man-Made Disease.”

National Toxicology Program (NTP) is formed from parts of several different US government agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The NTP updates its Report on Carcinogens (RoC) every few years.

The Report on Carcinogens identifies 2 groups of agents:

  1. Known to be human carcinogens”
    2. “Reasonably anticipated to be human carcinogens”
    The current version of the RoC lists about 240 substances and exposures:Known human carcinogens

At window

Look out the window of this brief view of Life.

God gives us truly beautiful gifts.

This we know
With eyes to see,
And ears to hear,
And the mirror of our mind
To remember.

rendezvous_by_struller

Truly beautiful gifts

But it is the Heart
That can plainly tell
You are one
Of those gifts.

Our Hearts daily sing,
At times,
As quietly
As the dark is
Night.

But we little know,
Deep inside,
Just how rare and beautiful it is
For a person, of any age,
To acknowledge
In the time we have on this Earth
The dynamic and wonderful deeds
We do for others.

boy with birds

Gaze into the Infinite and beautiful sky.

melitaea_phoebe_by_struller

How rare and beautiful.

We never seem to do justice
To ourselves in recognizing
The thoughts and efforts
We have contributed to
Countless friends and family,
And those we have
Not met.

Justice
Is a fleeting thing,
And can appear meaningless
In the Grand View of All things.

But the Love of God,
As it flows through you
From our Father
In Heavens Above,
Sees you.
He feels you,
He knows
You,
He is you.

The Love of God flows through you.

The Heart
That beats within His child
Is His.
And throughout your precious Being
His dynamic presence flows
From an Everlasting Grace.

Most go never being known.

Listen
To the song
Of your Heart.
Look out the window
Of this brief view of Life.
Gaze into the Infinite and Beautiful sky.
You will see many memories,
Moments that passed by,
Emotions more real
Than are you.

The Human Spirit
Is able to return
To the Love
From which it came.

TREE in hand

The story of your Life begins and ends with you.

The stories you share
Have a Life of their own.
Moments of great Love,
And greater Sacrifice,
Flow like a Sacred River
To an Infinite Sea
Of what we feebly know,
Of what has been,
Can ever be.

The course we chart in Life carries more than we.

The course we chart in Life
Carries more than we.
It harbors our Dreams,
And Memories,
All the Love we came to be,
The Compassion we felt
For others,
And
So very much more
We shall never truly know,
Never see.

This is Life.

But the story of your Life
Begins and ends
With you.

Every page
Knows your name,
Each chapter begins
Anew.

Some create a legacy,
A story that will always be remembered.

God’s Love for you
Will never let you keep
The love you have for others
Forever inside.

So very much more we shall never know, never see.

God conveys His Dreams
To protect us,
To heal,
To change us
And save us
From ourselves,
To guide us
In the direction we take.
Should we humble ourselves
In Prayer,
Should we ask,
We shall receive.

One Blessed Night
We will, at last,
At long last,
Listen
To His Heart
As He speaks to ours.

You are a dream.
And when you dream,
A dream within
A dream.

Your Love drifts from Life into your Dreams.

My thanks to Kayla
sharing the following:

Safflower is in the “battle of the bulge”.
With millions of people praising this so called “miracle pill”
that you take as a supplement to lose weight,
it has been getting a lot of attention
since it was recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show.

Surprisingly,
many people who struggle daily with their weight
have yet to hear about this powerful option.
Those that have heard of Safflower are confused
about what it is, how to use it,
and how to avoid falling for ineffective formulas.

lycaena_dispar_by_mantide

Great Courage and Dignity reside within your Faith.

According to Dr. Oz,
Safflower works in more than one way.
The first way is that it goes in and causes the body
to burn fat from within “like a furnace,”
literally melting the fat away.

orthetrum__cancellatum_by_mantide

We are Beloved Beyond Belief.

The second feature, and the most important one,
is that after Safflower has burnt the fat,
you’re left with the sleek, lean muscle
that was buried underneath.

The third feature
is its ability to strengthen
not only the muscles,
but the bones as well.

“This thing is lightning in a bottle;
it’s a miracle
flower to fight your fat”

Results of a 12-week clinical study are
published in the US National Library of Medicine
(National Institutes of Health).

Without Faith, what have you but yourself?

Safflower contains no stimulants.
Safflower contains 10% Pure Safflower,
the active ingredient in CLA Safflower Oil.
Safflower has been found to burn belly fat
from within your body, boosting weight loss
by more than 33%.
Studies have shown that daily
Safflower intake can increase lean muscle
and bone density.

What It Means To Be Human / Doss Cultural Heritage Center

We are in awakening times.

It was a tearful goodbye to Sia Yoo, visiting student from Korea.

It was a tearful goodbye to Sia Yoo, visiting student from Korea.     We love you Sia!

If we, the essence of humanity, can somehow manage to survive past the time when we would self-destruct, past that moment when we could eliminate such things as the hyper-ego of possessing nuclear weapons, then another new world could reveal itself.

This existence, this self-awareness, would evolve into another dimension of our own making. It would become what only our imaginations, our deepest desires and our dreams could conceive. It would be beyond our current understanding of ourselves, of what today makes us human and beyond any current reality. But the first step in the next phase of our evolution requires an awareness of who we are – what it means to be human.

So let’s explore our unbelievable presence of being or . . . . . . not being.

More than 90% of the cells in our bodies are non-human.

According to a recent National Institutes of Health estimate, 90% of cells in the human body are bacterial, fungal, or otherwise non-human. Since the inception of the Human Microbiome Project, dozens of research teams have gathered data which redefine what it means to be human. Bacteria regularly engage in “shape shifting” between forms. The bacteria in our bodies harbor millions of genes, compared with only 20,000 estimated in the human genome. To say that you are outnumbered is a massive understatement.

According to researcher, Jennifer Loveland-Curtze, “Microbes comprise up to one-third or more of the Earth’s biomass”. Click here to read article. These bacteria form a diverse and complex ecosystem with a total gene pool (microbiome) more than 100 times larger than the human genome — in effect we are hybrid superorganisms. SIGN stock show 054Every human body harbors about 100 trillion bacterial cells, outnumbering human cells 10 to one. Human beings are not really individuals; they’re communities of organisms,’ says microbiologist Margaret McFall-Ngai. Humans Carry More Bacterial Cells than Human Ones.

You are more bacteria than you are you, according to the latest body census. click here to read more. Humans Have Ten Times More Bacteria Than Human Cells. Click here for more information.

Now, while keeping in mind just how much of you is not really you, please give consideration to this:

We are almost non-existent inside our Mother’s womb. The human body is about 97% water in the early stage of life (leaving 3% that constitutes what can be considered – us) and 90% at birth. The water content in the body of a grown-up person decreases to about 60% (Thank you, burgers & fries!).

And amazingly, only 1 percent of the water on planet Earth is fresh water that sustains our life, 97 percent is saltwater (almost identical to us, early in life) ; 2 percent is water frozen in glaciers, until it is released in a few years, after we have converted the remaining trillions of gallons of oil into heat in our beloved automobiles.

          The substance of the universe is consciousness.

Mason loves optical illusions

Mason loves optical illusions, which become real when he observes them. Prior to that time they are an illusion of illusions.

According to current research in particle physics, an atom only appears in a particular place if you observe it or measure it (remember, you are made of atoms). An atom is spread out all over the place, until a conscious observer decides to look at it. So an act of observation, or measurement, creates the entire universe. Click here for video.

???????????????????????????????

The nature of reality can be examined through the study of illusion.

An electron is not anywhere, until we decide to look. When we stop looking, the electron is everywhere (which is a good description of the Omnipresence (everywhere present) of God as found in the Old Testament (in Jeremiah 23:24 God declares, “Do I not fill heaven and earth?”)

Matter does not exist.

The concept of substance arose from the philosophy of Aristotle. And from that concept came science’s conception of matter. But the substance of the universe is, in fact, consciousness. And each component of the Infinite is an effect of consciousness. Hang in there, it gets deeper – much deeper.

A Buddhist koan tells us, ‘…it is not ever the wind blowing or a flag we see moving – it is only Mind that moves.’ Nothing is true and everything is true because everything is Mind (or forms of Mind materialized).

The world is our bodyit is as we are.  For example, trees are one half of our lungs. They give off oxygen and we contribute carbon dioxide formed in respiration- we breathe in and they breathe out. Folks, we are truly one with the universe. How we regard other people and the events we perceive is a matter of “I” projecting what it believes the experience of ‘the other’ to be a mirroring of Imagination. Ideas sparkling in the light of consciousness, bounced back from holographic reflections of Being.

If you think you are confused, you may not be the you, you think you are, to be confused. In order to be confused you must be conscious of being confused, not just confused, which, when you think about it, is confusing.

What we sense as past, present or future occurs as simultaneous ‘time.’

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.  We, and all other matter, come into and out of existence billions of times each second.

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 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, that atoms are made of focused vorticies of energy – miniature tornadoes that are constantly popping into and out of existence. This revelation, that reality comes from a holistic entanglement of immaterial energy waves, stems from the work of Albert Einstein, Max Planck, and Werner Heisenberg.  ???????????????????????????????

Reality is an illusion.

At the turn of the ninetieth century, physicists started to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. In doing so, the belief that a physical, Newtonian material universe that was at the very heart of scientific knowing was dropped, and the realization that matter is nothing but an illusion replaced it. Scientists began to recognize that everything in the Universe is made out of energy. Scientific evidence clearly shows the connections between consciousness and what we call reality and how these can no longer be denied. Click her for more.

Reality is a hologram creation.

A good example of this is when you go to the movies (to see a “motion” picture”, which is not one continuous movement that you view with your eyes. Instead, there are frames of action strung together and projected one after the other at a fast speed – 24 frames per second used as a standard in movies. In the early history of motion pictures, in 1895, Auguste and Louis Lumière introduced the Cinématographe, a projector that could show 16 frames per second. And in their public cinema, audiences were spellbound by the films of simple movement and action.

Today, that is pretty much a child’s toy when compared to MIT’s new hardware which can record at 1,000,000,000,000 frames per second. Fast enough to capture slow motion footage of light waves. Yes, an unbelievable Trillion Frames Per Second Camera Captures Light itself in Motion. Click here to view demonstration video.

The human brain connects the individual frames into one continuous movement. Yes, very vivid reflections of our hopes, dreams, and imagination are passing through your eyes at 24 frames per second when you behold the “magic” of a motion picture. A new reality is created in your mind, when your mind observes and becomes conscious of the illusion projected toward you. You can become so taken with the emotion directed at you that you lose track of what you consider to be reality.

The key first step in understanding what it means to be human is awareness.

I believe that the essence of human life is due to mankind being a spiritual being. We are made in the image of a Spiritual Being. And He is still the Lord of Creation. And what He creates is often through us. What a wonderful expression of love – for mankind to be endowed with such a gift as to become a lord of creation, with all the potential for good.

So often we find in the beautifully crafted and insightful words of poets and philosophers the essence of our being, the simplicity of understanding and truth.

As the poet, Fernando Pessoa, who in speaking of the soul of Portugal, speaks to the humanity in us all:

“What are you waiting to find in me. Haven’t you seen in all I wrote what makes me a man? What I ascetically preserved for you after my death. Reality needs me not. I feel great joy in considering that death is not important at all. Consecrate the word of the person I am, a whole person, a man of soul. That aside, I bear inside me, all the dreams of the world. God gave the peril and the abyss to the sea. But in it, He reflected the Heavens”.

“Sad the man, who lives at home, content with his hearth, without a dream, whose fluttering wing, makes the embers glow redder, in the warm fire to be abandoned.

He lives because life endures. Nothing in his soul is telling him, more than a root can teach. . . Let the vision in his soul subdue blind forces.

I lack the divine simplicity of being only what I appear to be.”

“We worship perfection because we can’t have it;
if we had it, we would reject it.
Perfection is inhuman,
because humanity is imperfect.”     ― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

Yes, the spiritual essence of being so human, so brilliantly imperfect, is inherent within us and it compels us to listen generously and compassionately to others rather than being judgmental. Our spirituality is the essence of who we are. And, like breathing, it is essential to human existence.

What we consider to be us may truly be an illusion, and an imperfect one. But the love we feel for one another is palpable, capable of being felt; tangible, real. In fact, it may be the only reality.

Perhaps, the illusion of being exists for a reason. Our reason for being, or the illusion it presents, may exist to construct a new and elevated dimension – a world so real it serves to resurrect within us the profound love that gave us life – a love beyond being, beyond mere existence – a love so profound that it moves our reality toward the light of God’s Love. One day the union of our love, with that of our Father in Heaven, may blossom into the Light of Eternal Life.

My friends, we are simply not capable of knowing everything. But it appears that the realms of science and theology are rapidly merging. They are, like everything else in the universe, becoming one. 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 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.

OUR  TRIP  FOR  THIS  FRIDAY

On Friday, Feb. 14, 2014 we will leave from the school at 9:00 a.m. sharp (o.k., maybe not sharp, hopefully not dull) to caravan to the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford. The Mission of the Doss Heritage and Culture Center is to collect, preserve and exhibit the heritage of Parker County and Texas. The Museum offers Parker County’s rich tapestry of cattle barons and cowboys. Broadway and television stars, chuck wagons and stagecoaches shared and showcased in galleries that are truly awe-inspiring and reflects all that is Parker County.

Our docent guided tour will begin at 10:00 a.m. Following our tour we will dine at the Whistle Hill Cafe and then return to the Anderson School. Pickup will be at the school at 3:00 p.m. PARENTS / GUARDIANS / FRIENDS are always invited to participate on Friday.

Comfortable shoes and clothing are highly recommended for activities on this day.

FINANCIAL: Admission: $3.00 Adults, $3.00 Seniors (60 years and older or you look roughed up by children like Dr. A), $3.00 Students, Children under 6 and Members FREE

GIFT SHOP: Yes!

LUNCH: We will dine at the delightful Whistle Hill Cafe. The DOSS CENTER is located at 1400 Texas Drive in Weatherford.

Directions from Fort Worth: From Interstate 20 west take exit 408 onto service road, turn right onto Texas Drive off service road. Proceed past shopping center on the left, through the four way stop at Austin Elementary. Go approx. 2 blks north on Texas Drive and the Doss Center will be on the left, on the corner of Texas Drive and Park.

We will learn about the famous cowboys who made Texas a name known throughout the country. Rugged men and women who brought the cattle to market by driving them along trails to market forever cementing themselves in the annals of Texas history.

The Trail Drivers exhibit opened to the public last year. The cattle drives of Texas represent a critical period in the history of Texas. The drives helped the Texas economy recover and thrive after the Civil War. This exhibition tells the story of longhorn cattle drives and highlights the stories of Charles Goodnight and Oliver Loving. Parker County played an integral role in this legacy. We will learn about Charles Goodnight’s Chuck wagon design and how Loving’s body was returned to Weatherford after he met his untimely death on the trail.
