Trapped Within The Truth / Liquid Crystal Shells / Prevent Heart Disease / Sept. 4: Classes Resume

We are Reborn each day,
as we rise with the Sun.
But a warmth
rises in our Hearts,
and it is
not from the Sun.

For the Meditations
of the Heart
be Thou the
Vision
of His Light
in us.

“Be thou my vision,
O Lord of my Heart;

naught be all else to me,
save that Thou art –

thou my best thought,
by day or by night;

waking or sleeping,
Thy presence my Light.”

Saint Dallan

When Love,
it seems,
is never enough,
it is time to
give

and not
receive.

Understanding and caring
for another,
enables and empowers
us
to navigate
the hills and valleys
of Life and Love.

                                   It is time to give.

When
Hearts beat
for one another,
it is the rhythm
we feel
the rhythm of Life.

Life
is a Heartbeat away.
And
so is death.
Breathe deeply
the Beauty
that abounds
all around.

.
There are
theories of knowledge,
Epistemology,
that permeate the very
Horizon
of our Being.

Such is
the Mystery of
Life.

My Dear Friends,
memory
is knowing.
Intuition is a knowing.
Forgetting
is a knowing that was,
what you now know
not.
Knowing
what you do not know
is knowing.
Knowing
that you never knew
is knowing,
as is
knowing that you
will never know.

knowledge,

On one day,
I wanted to
help.
But,
I didn’t know how.
Little did I know,
I did not need
to know –
how.
I did not need
to know
anything.

What I did need,
was to feel.
Feeling
is truly knowing.
William Paul Young

“So many believe
that it is Love that grows,
but it is the knowing that grows

Every person is connected
to the Eternal,
the Infinite.
Our deepest feelings
connect us to this source.
Seek the deepest part of your Heart,
and learn what it means
to manifest your true self
into this Beautiful
World.

  Something truly Beautiful

As I gain something else
in Life,
something truly
Beautiful
and still in me,
I surrender.
And freedom is formed
from a new moment,
a new perspective,
and I access something more intense:
a new awareness.

And
I am reborn.

My Dear Friends,
Love
can only be
FELT.
It cannot be
described
or defined.
We may never
know
what Love is.
Unless,
we come to know
God.
Because
God
is Love.
.
“Anyone who does not Love
does not know God,
because God is Love.

Whoever lives in Love
lives in God,
and God in him.”

(1 John 4:8 and 4:16b)

Love
may one day
touch your
Soul.
Then,
and only then,
will you
know.

Goodnight.

“When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the Light
Unashamed to have braved the dark.

Though I may not know
the answers,

I can finally say I am free.
And if the questions led me here,
Then I am who I was born to be.”
Tobias Lundgren, Tim Mikael Larsson,
Johan Fransson, Audra Mae

“Young and restless friend,
You’ll never pass this way again.
So drink the summer wine
Reach for the Stars
While you have time.
Your restless heart,
It will lead the way.
So dream your dreams
and live for each day

While you are young.”
David Hasselhoff

Frequent Technology Use
Linked to ADHD Symptoms in Teens

A new study of 2,500 teenagers
suggests that frequent use of digital media
can lead to higher risk
of developing ADHD-related symptoms.

The more teens use social-media networking sites,
video games and streaming services,
the higher their risk of developing symptoms
of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder,
or ADHD, a new study found.

The study, published Tuesday
in the Journal of the American Medical Association,
tracked 2,500 teens over two years
and monitored their usage and symptoms.

Liquid Crystal Shells

Research led by scientists in Europe has shown the potential of liquid crystal shells as enabling material for a vast array of future applications, ranging from autonomous driving to anti-counterfeiting technology and a new class of sensors.

Liquid Crystals, already widely used in flat-screen TVs, are materials that are in a state between solid and liquid.

Guiding autonomous vehicles

Liquid Crystal shells, only fractions of a millimeter in size so they can easily be applied to surfaces, have several unique properties that could be utilized in engineering: As they reflect light highly selectively, they can be arranged into patterns that are readable for machines, akin to a QR code, adding coded information to objects. “These patterns could be used to guide autonomous vehicles

Tactile feeling for Robots

Additionally, the shells can be manufactured in a way that they change their structure when they are exposed to certain external impacts, such as pressure, heat or specific chemicals. Together with computers to interpret these changes, the shells could be used as sensors, for example as pressure sensors in the fingertips of robots enabling tactile feeling which is currently hard to achieve in robotic engineering.

Get ready!
YOU can be replaced.

Preventing counterfeiting

Finally,
liquid crystal shells could be used to prevent counterfeiting. The micro patterns that emerge when the shells are brought together are unique.

The very Horizon of our Being.

are two different things,
and feeling is what counts.”

The Inner Peace of Tranquility / A Saner Way

Life is unpredictable.
It is typically filled with
little Joy
and much sorrow.

Our dreams can simply
disappear.
And then
we ask ourselves,
how can we find
the inner peace
of tranquility,
living with such
uncertainty?

My Dear Friends,
you can find
that there is a place
in you,
where you are quiet and calm
and nothing can disturb you.
But it is difficult
to find the way there.

Help
is available.
Please allow me
to share
some truly valuable resources.

One
of the most valuable
I have discovered
is from
www.wikihow.com/Achieve-Inner-Peace.

The following is from
wikihow.com:

Do you want to achieve the calmness and serenity
that comes with inner peace?
Anyone can!
All you need to do is let go
of the stresses and strains
of daily life
and make time to just
be.
.
Finding inner peace is a process
– so take it
one day at a time.

Quiet your mind.
Sit quietly to free and empty your mind of thought.
Rest frequently.
Find a comfortable spot to unwind, relax
or take a nap.
Being well-rested
is crucial to your mental and emotional well-being.

Keep everything simple.
Inner peace is easier to achieve
when you simplify your life
and your to-do list.
Try not to do everything at once.
You can do anything you want,
but you don’t have to do everything
at once.

Take your time.
Achieving inner peace is a process;
take the time to experience and enjoy
your own personal journey.
Don’t be discouraged if the process takes a while;
there is Beauty in the process
of becoming.

if you are recovering from emotional trauma,
allow yourself the TIME
to experience the process of recovery.
You can achieve inner peace
and live a purposeful, self-directed life
when you take the time to recover
fully.

Tranquility
can be difficult to achieve.
It can take
a great deal of
TIME.
.
But you can
ENJOY traveling down
the path to inner peace.
And,
it will require YOU
to learn much more
than you know.

There is Beauty in the process of becoming.

.
Know Thyself.
this thought, commonly attributed to Socrates,
stems from a more ancient source
and lies at the root of all
philosophy.
.
Know Thyself was written on
the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.
Legend tells that the seven sages of ancient Greece,
philosophers, statesmen and law-givers,
who laid the foundation for western culture,
gathered in Delphi to inscribe “know thyself”
at the entry to its sacred oracle.
The adage subsequently became a touch-stone
for western philosophers,
and extended its reach
as the influence of Greek philosophy expanded.
This site gathers its most profound expressions
and elaborates on their meaning.

The path to inner peace.

Self-knowledge is all-encompassing.
What is learned on one scale of experience
can be applied to all scales.
It is the highest form of knowledge,
surpassing all other knowledge.

Self-knowledge is also timeless,
which means that what is gained in one era,
benefits all subsequent generations.
On this website we have gathered
many expressions of ancient wisdom
that have been articulated by eminent men and women
from all ages, traditions and cultures.

Our compilation reveals the Universal nature
of man’s quest for self-knowledge,
and further shows that no age of mankind
was necessarily any closer or farther
from this quest than any other.

Although we may be technologically more sophisticated
than our ancestors,
the age we inhabit is in the same relationship
as previous eras to this quest.
Therefore, the primary aim of this site
is to benefit from the ancient wisdom
of our ancestors and apply it to our own period.

If you’d like to explore the quest for self-knowledge more deeply, subscribe to our mailing list.
We will send you email updates
on a contemporary attempt at building
an online community that applies
ancient wisdom in modern times.

Or simply read on to learn more
about the Universal challenge of
self-knowledge.

When asked what was the most difficult thing,
Thales replied, “To know thyself.”
When asked what was easiest,
he replied, “To give advice.”

Since Solon (one of the seven sages)
received his education in Egypt,
the principle of Know Thyself
might well predate the Greeks.
At the same time, the Hindus in the east
developed their system of philosophy
before the Greek civilization,
and knowledge of the Self
took a prominent position in their writings.
(Read more about the history of Know Thyself)

Wherever and whenever the adage originated,
Know Thyself was universally adopted and placed
at the foundation of knowledge,
the corner stone on which the temples of philosophy
should be erected.

“The essence of knowledge is self-knowledge,”
claimed the Greek philosopher Plato.
Centuries before him, the Hindu Upanishads confirmed,
“Enquiry into the truth of the Self is knowledge.”

Leagues away and centuries later,
the Persian poet Rumi wondered,
“Who am I in the midst of all this thought traffic?”
and the American poet Walt Whitman celebrated his Self,
“a simple, separate person.”

Know Thyself through time

This two-word imperative traveled from antiquity
and throughout history to the present day.
Like a golden thread in a multicolored fabric,
Know Thyself wove its course through races and cultures, through religious and secular traditions, spanning spiritual and scientific teachings and appearing in art and literature.

Indeed, the ancient adage was declared
in almost every medium on every continent and in every era.

Know thyself has often been a corner stone
rejected.

“Can one know oneself”
wondered the French poetess George Sand.
Is one ever somebody?
“When will I ever see that Am that I Am?”
lamented the poet Rumi.

Scores of poets and philosophers
dedicated their lives to inquiring about the Self,
seeking its elusive mysteries, digging deep to unearth
that hidden stone without which all construction would be futile.
Some attained remarkable results,
attested to by the legacy of their works.
Others never found an end to their quest.
“I have an inner self of which I was ignorant,”
confesses the Bohemian – Austrian poet Rilke in his diary,
while the ninety-year-old art-historian Bernard Berenson
tells a different story:

Yet,
who is the real I,
where does he hide from ME?

I know who he is not,
but how and what and if at all HE is,
I have never discovered
although for more than seventy years
I have been looking for him.

It is the sincerity of such remarks as Berenson’s
that touch the reader and direct his attention inwards,
asking himself the very questions
these authors posed in their times.

Know Thyself – the essence of knowledge

If the essence of knowledge is self-knowledge,
then this site is an elementary door
to all those in pursuit of this wisdom.
Within these pages and posts are compilations of sayings on
Know Thyself,
the fruition of many hours of research by several individuals.
The quotations compiled are at the reader’s disposal.

Profound sayings on Know Thyself invite
contemplation.

They profess that Truth stands the test of time,
bypassing the ages and connecting us with the authors
who expressed them.
They spark our curiosity to learn more about the men and women who struggled before us, who strove in their times to find a firm foundation of truth,
as we do today.

They prove timelessly relevant and open doors into further inquiry of our true nature.
They confirm that, despite the passage of millennia, man’s struggles have essentially remained the same: man is, and always has been, a being in search of truth and identity.

Moreover, expressions of self-knowledge call us to action.
“‘Know Thyself was written over the portal of the antique world,”
said the Irish writer Oscar Wilde
more than two thousand years after the seven sages inscribed it on the forecourt of their oracle.
“Over the portal of the new world,
Be Thyself’
shall be written.”

Socrates on Know Thyself

The only true wisdom
is in knowing you know
nothing.

“Wisdom begins with wonder,” said Socrates.
Through dialogue, he led his audience to passionate inquiry
of existence and identity.

His speech maintained a humble tone, claiming,
to the surprise of his listeners,
that he knew nothing.
In his mind,
one could not know anything without knowing one’s self.

Thus, the Seven Sages of Greece,
who had inscribed know thyself in the forecourt
of the Delphic oracle a few generations before Socrates,
had challenged all subsequent philosophers to attain self-knowledge before knowing anything else.
Socrates embraced this ancient challenge humbly:

I am not yet able, as the Delphic inscription has it, to know myself; so it seems to me ridiculous, when I do not yet know that, to investigate irrelevant things.

Care first about the greatest perfection of the Soul.

“What I want to discover at present,”
said Socrates,
“is the art which devotes its attention
to precision, exactness, and the fullest
truth.”

His philosophical inquiry was, therefore,
dedicated to truth,
foremost the truth about himself.
By publicly admitting his self-ignorance,
he made his audience aware of their own.

My Dear Friends,
there will be storms to face,
and sometimes tragedies.
But with Faith in our Loving God
and with trust in His Divine help,
we can confidently say,
“It will be well with my Soul.”

Goodnight.

A Saner Way

If we were to search throughout the history of human existence, in every nook and cranny on Planet Earth, we would not find one perfectly sane mind. Some form and degree of madness (in both senses of the word) is and has always been a pandemic disease among our species, from which no one has been immune, or has ever been known to fully recover.

And yet, despite the monumental ramifications of this astounding fact, it is rarely noted by even the most serious thinkers. It seems that we are unwilling to experience the inevitable humbling that must come with admitting, even to ourselves, that as a species, we human beings too often think, feel and behave as though we were not in our right minds.

Until we lift the veil of denial that blinds us to this premise, we will continue to go about our lives in utter confusion as to why we do the crazy things we do. But when we admit to ourselves, and one another, that the reason we behave as though we are mad is because we are, our confusion disappears.

We understand why we choose, of our own free will, to sacrifice clean air, water and food essential for our survival for petty pleasures that are too embarrassing to list and are sure to be the death of us; why we hide from one another behind a lifetime of disguises and lies; why we settle our disputes by fighting people we do not know, under orders from others we do not know, in defense of what we do not know is so; and why the demons of depression, obsession, repression, anxiety, guilt, apathy, hate and jealousy haunt our days and nights.

The many symptoms of our shared illness are easily seen on any street corner, in homes, schools, work places, courtrooms or anywhere else human behavior is on display.

But the most serious is our seeming obsession with some form of violence. What greater proof that the state of our minds is off-kilter than the fact that we commit, condone and applaud gruesome acts of violence, on a daily basis… from slaughterhouses and laboratories to war zones? What else, but mental illness, would explain why Spiritual beings, capable of reason and compassion, choose cruelty and violence instead?

Evolving beyond our lust for violence is the essential first step toward our desperately-needed cure. Only by rising above our willingness to terrorize, be terrorized by or watch anyone else terrify or be terrified by anyone else, will we, for the first time in our history, feel safe enough to lift the veil that hides our saner selves. When we do, we will discover that although we are surely mad, we are not only mad.

Each of us is empowered with a reasonable mind and a compassionate heart… the golden pillars that frame the pathway to a saner way of living.

When we embark on that pathway, we come face to face with veganism, which is non-violence in action. The concept, as simple as it is profound, is that the violent, unbelievably cruel custom of enslaving, torturing and killing our fellow earthlings must and will end when we stop supporting it, and we will do so when we see the innocent victims for who they really are… mysterious beings like us, who feel pain and Love life as we do, and have done us no harm.

When we open our minds to reason and compassion, we will see with saner eyes, that their precious bodies are not ours to bend and break to our will for the sake of our pleasure, comfort, convenience or any other excuse our unreasonable, apathetic thinking can conjure up.

Without veganism, we will remain trapped in our madness.

With it, we will be the sanest we have ever been.

 Beings like us, who feel pain and Love life as we do.

The Curious Realization of Being / Whistle Hill Cafe Needs Our Help / Important Dates

a_027

To see into the reality of who I am.

This place
is merely space
that is flowing –
like a river
of dreams.
And down by the
river bank we sit,
and we wonder
about the water.

Dreams are
fundamentally
unreal spaces,
place-less places,
flowing through
the canyons of our minds,
that,
until we wake,
reflect a deep
longing to be
and to see
into the reality
of who I am,
me.

We have
a curious realization
of being.
The space
in which we think
we live,
mirrors what is secret,
Sacred
,
a reflection of our real selves
in diverse shades
of dark and light,
momentary traces in time,
portraits drawn by imagination,
so parallel in their dimensions
they almost rhyme.

a_010

Objects we perceive are not the ultimate reality.

Light
dances upon the waters
of our lives –
waters flowing so swiftly
we may never know
the direction for you and me
is toward
an Eternal Sea.

a_034

    And we wonder about the water.

And what is,
or is not,
is beautifully reflected
in the temporarity
of each moment
meant to be,
or not to be,
as Love,
only Love,
shows us the deeper meaning
of being.

Plato postulated in
The Republic
that the objects we perceive
are not the ultimate reality,
but more like a shadow of reality.

a_049

Our experience is as much a reflection.

And the philosopher Immanuel Kant
gave us insight into the realization
that all we ever know
are the structures generated in our mind.
“The thing-in-itself”,
remains forever unknowable.

The mind is barred
from a direct knowing
of the thing-in-itself.
And our experience is as much a
reflection
of the nature of our mind
as it is of the physical world.

Kant reached the conclusion
that time and space
are not inherent qualities of our physical world;
they are reflections in the mind,
a perceptual framework within which
our experience of the world is constructed.
But this does not mean
that WE can never understand it.

a_054

Enlightening avenues of thought.

We do not passively
experience the world;

we are the creators
of the world we experience.
And why
would we not be?
Are we not
Children of God?

Throughout the literature
of mankind are examples of Spiritual people
who have proclaimed that the whole world
is within them.
And current research provides
new and insightful perspectives
leading to this conclusion.

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are rapidly merging,
as new philosophical insights,
garnered from scientific research,
are providing more enlightening
avenues of thought.

a_039

A reflection in diverse shades of dark and light.

What is found in the precious
Word of God
is becoming more and more
validated and valued.

We know so very, very little
about ourselves
and the world around us.

“We don’t know
a millionth

of one percent
about anything.”
– Thomas A. Edison

But,
in this same moment in time,
we can discover
Ultimate Truths,
Lovingly placed
between the Covers
of a Beautiful Book,
The Holy Bible.
And these comforting
and enlightening words
are patiently waiting for
you.

bible

              Lovingly placed

My Precious Friends,
sometimes what we say
has little worth,
for words,
impregnated by Truth,
are not always
able to give birth.
And so it goes,
the distance we travel
is not always
equal
to the number of steps
we take.

But Love
is the essence
of Truth.

“The spiritual journey
is the relinquishment, or unlearning,

of fear
and the acceptance of Love
back into our hearts.
Love is the essential existential fact.
It is our ultimate reality
and our purpose on earth.
To be consciously aware of it,
to experience Love in us and others,
is the meaning of life.
– Marianne Williamson

a_131

  We can also be Loving.

To the degree
we are violent
toward one another,
we can also be
Loving.
And we are
a truly violent
species.
The second greatest destroyer
of Precious Human Lives
are other Human beings.

And God spake
all these words, saying,
“Thou shalt not kill.”
Exodus 20:13

But,
we can become
the most Loving Creation
of all.

a_009

         Toward an Eternal Sea.

The gossamer thread
of Life
is spent and spun
and very, very fine:
Life hanging
by a thread.
The tempest tossed
homeless,
buffeted about by adversity,
lead me to this
belief.

And why
we of such prosperity,
do not grasp
the fragile thread
of Life
to pull those in such need
aboard this Ship of State,
is beyond my poor ability
to add or detract.

The hand you extend
to others is,
in the Ultimate Reality,
the Hand of God,
as He moves
through us,
through our Sacred Hearts.
Together
we can give a new birth
of freedom
to a Life in need.
Hope in a heartbeat,
Love
beyond all measure,
an ultimate realization of
our being.

We are all
in the water.
All of us!

Goodnight.

a_028

So parallel in their dimensions they almost rhyme.

“I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord,
lead me home.”
– Thomas E. Dorsey

To believe in yourself
is to believe
in That
which gave you
being.

.

“As we Love others,
we Love ourselves.”

a_088

Together we can give a new birth of freedom.

Brace yourselves.
And prepare your children.
The future is coming
faster than the speed of light.

Next Week we will explore:

Quantum Mechanics.
NASA scientists have recently confirmed that matter can indeed be in two places at once. In fact, through quantum entanglement, particles millions of light-years apart can be connected without physical contact. Space-time can now be manipulated; teleportation is becoming a reality; gravity-resistant material is now heralded for air transport, and virtual science has led to a greater understanding of hyper-dimensional existence.

And you thought,
all they really need to know
is how to read and write!

Why Transferring Credit Card Balances
Is Brilliant

By Allison Franceour
July 8th 2015

Credit card issuers are in such fierce competition these days to attract new customers that most have started offering sweetheart deals to win you over, like ultra-long 0% introductory APR interest periods. By transferring your balance onto one of these cards, you immediately stop all interest charges during the introductory period (which is a LONG time).

For example, the BankAmericard offers 18 months at 0% APR, so during that entire 18 month intro period, you pay nothing in interest on any balance transferred. That could literally result in thousands of dollars in savings, and is simply a no brainer. With these offers out there, it just makes absolutely no sense to continue to pay high credit card interest on your current balances. Come on folks, wake up!

Well, without further ado, here are the very few cards offering great balance transfer specials: The Cards Which Not Only Don’t Charge, But Actually   – – – PAY YOU. – – –

Freezerless Refrigerator

refridg

My Dear Friends,
I am not a salesman for Sears. But, the Kenmore freezerless all-refrigerator is designed to operate efficiently in unheated locations with ambient temperature as low at 10 degrees Fahrenheit. You can place this refrigerator in a cold garage or basement without worrying that your fresh foods will freeze. Believe it or not, Eskimos buy refrigerators to keep food from freezing!

But this is what I especially like about it: it is a freezer with the thermostat set above freezing. The end result is that it is especially well insulated (to be a freezer) and saves money in electrical costs. We have one at the school (actually, our second model designed like this). We have no real need for a freezer at school and do not waste electricity to bring the temperature down to well below freezing. It is something I wanted to share with you.

And please, pass along your ideas to help each other. I will be glad to post them on this weblog. And LET ME HEAR FROM YOU. I need to know what you think, how you feel about this weblog. What are you interested in reading about?

Hey, were all just friends and family.

And we are more family than you were aware of. Geneticists have discovered that we ALL originated in heart of Africa, and from one female. In 1987, a group of genet­icists published a surprising study in the prestigious journal Nature

Yes, geneticists concluded that every person on Earth right now can trace his or her lineage back to a single common female ancestor who lived around 200,000 years ago. read more

The scientists named this common female ancestor Mitochondrial Eve. Isn’t it interesting that they would name her EVE.

Science and Theology are quickly merging – becoming ONE. The story that one has told is the story the other is telling.

Just as we are: ONE!

May God
always abide with you

and show you the way
to discover the Joy
hidden deep inside
your precious Heart.
Yes, my friend
It is there.

And if you miss love,

‘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 can see with our eyes.
But close your eyes,
And look into the real light of this life,
Into the Light of your heart,
Into that which transcends
What has been illumined,
Into what will be.

Close your eyes.
Listen to the song
Long laid to rest,
Seldom sung,
But as a child.
The one you heard –
So long ago,
The one you were –
And, so long to hear again.

It is the song of your heart,
Beating in time
With all that has gone before,
With all it longed to be.

You shall never see
As clearly as today.
The lens of your heart
Can focus your mind
Upon the things in life
That truly have meaning,
That matter.

Sunset 2

The glow of your being,
The essence of your existence,
Lies deeply embedded
Within the Love you feel
For someone else.

Within the few and precious moments
You share with another,
Lies a Gift greater
Than any treasure on this earth,
A Gift only you can give,
A Gift so alive with Love,
That it will live forever –
The Gift of knowing, surely knowing,
That someone is alive in your heart,
And will live there
Forever.

Such Love never dies.
Such Love has always lived,
Placed in your heart
By the precious Love of God,
This Love comes through you,
Not from you.

It is the only Gift
Worthy of bestowing,
Worthy of receipt.

It is yours,
If discovered,
Treasured,
Shared.

Your heart is not yours.
It belongs to another,
And always has.
Time is measured
By its humble beat –
The pulsing of its radiance
You will never feel,
For the vibrancy of its being
Always takes flight,
Seeking shelter
In the dark corner of another life,
To light the pathway,
To see.

You are,
By the Grace of God,
This Light
.
  May the Light of your precious Life
Bring someone out of darkness,
And into the warm, bright, joyful
Sunlight of Salvation –
Your Salvation,
And the precious one you save.

And find me all alone.
When the sun comes a-singing
I’ll still be waiting.”

6 common household items that cause cancer
from: naturalnews.com

Air fresheners –  A hotbed of poisonous substances that could leave you and your loved ones infertile, brain-damaged or chronically ill. Tests conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council found that most air fresheners contain phthalates, which among other things interfere with male hormone production.

Most air fresheners are also loaded with other cancer-causing volatile organic compounds as well, which interfere with reproduction, respiration and cellular regeneration. A 2008 study conducted by Anne Steinemann at the University of Washington found that all air fresheners tested emitted chemicals known to be carcinogenic, meaning they cause cancer.

Instead of toxic commercial air fresheners, stick with all-natural essential oils, which can be applied to the skin or released into the air from a diffuser. read more

Candles  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found that nearly half of all scented candles on the market contain lead wiring in their wicks, which is released into the air upon burning. This lead leads to hormone disruption, behavioral disorders and other health problems.

Director George Rodriguez interviews students for roles in our coming Shakespeare production.

Director George Rodriguez interviews Jack for a role in our upcoming Shakespeare production.

Many candles are also made of paraffin wax which, when burned, generates two highly toxic compounds, benzene and toluene, both of which are carcinogenic. Artificial fragrances and dyes are also present in many scented candles, which when burned end up in your lungs.

Art supplies –  Epoxy materials, glues, acrylic paints and solvents, drawing utensils and other supplies used to create art contain chemicals linked to allergies, organ damage and cancer.

The federal Labeling Hazardous Art Materials Act requires that all art supplies sold in the U.S. bear warnings. It is recommended that users of such supplies purchase only products that are certified by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI). ACMI-certified products undergo rigorous evaluations by independent toxicologists to make sure that they are safe for everyone, including small children.

Shampoos & Conditioners – Toxins are in cosmetics containing ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate that generate cancer-causing byproducts when used. Other carcinogenic additives commonly used in hair care products include polyethylene glycol (PEG) and cocamide DEA.

Safe Cosmetics has put together a list of the safest and most eco-friendly shampoos on the market, which are free of most or all of the chemicals listed in its “Skin Deep” database, which you can access here: SafeCosmetics.org.

Antiperspirant Deodorants –  Avoid aluminum chlorohydrate, which can absorb directly into the skin and promote the formation of breast cancer. Aluminum from antiperspirants is also believed to contribute to brain diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Other toxic additives in deodorants include parabens, artificial preservatives that mimic estrogen in the body and promotes the growth of cancer cells. Parabens are also linked to gastrointestinal damage, nausea and central nervous system depression.

Shower curtains – Plastic shower curtains act something like a radiator for toxic chemical release. Many shower curtains off-gas harmful chemicals known as volatile organic compounds that are known to damage the respiratory tract, central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

Mary Alice

Augustus Caesar keeps a watchful eye over Mary Alice (she earlier beheaded him!)

If your shower curtain has that unique “new shower curtain smell,” it is releasing deadly chemicals — potentially upwards of 108 different VOCs, that are harming you. It is important to buy only non-toxic, PVC-free shower curtains made without harmful chemicals.

Some of the best options include shower curtains made from hemp, linen, birch, organic cotton or PEVA, which you can learn more about here:

MPs in the U.K say yes to Three-Person Babies
from click here

MPs have voted in favor of the creation of babies with DNA from two women and one man. The UK is now set to become the first country to introduce laws to allow the creation of babies from three people. The technique stops genetic diseases being passed from mother to child. This change that will be passed down through the generations. It also asks questions about the future. Some people argue we are now on a slippery slope to further genetic modification of children.

A further vote is required in the House of Lords. It everything goes ahead then the first such baby could be born next year. Critics say they will continue to fight against the technique that raises too many ethical and safety concerns.
