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.

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.

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.

The Whistle Hill Cafe
Needs our Support.

The very Loving and dedicated family,
that has provided such a beautiful
and healthy service to our citizens
for very many years,
needs our help.

These wonderful people
need a new home
for their restaurant.
If you know of a building
located in Weatherford
or on the west side of Fort Worth,
that can be leased or purchased
and is reasonably priced
please let me know.

As with the beautiful family of
Atex Trash Service,
(817-344-8464)
this family owned
and family operated business
is part of what has made America
truly Great.
Please let me hear from you.
.

“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!

Through Loving Eyes / Matter is NOT the Only Reality / The MIND Diet / School Begins on a Cooler Day: Tuesday, Sept. 8

Dedicated to the beautiful Mother of our wonderful children. No greater Love have I ever found.

Dedicated to the beautiful
Mother
of our wonderful children.
No greater Love
have I ever found.

Through Loving Eyes

A Mother will always see
Through her child’s eyes,
Always feel the vibrant Love,
Fast flowing like a raging torrent
To the Eternal Sea
Of God’s Love
In you
And me.

My Mother’s tears of pain and joy
I keep deep inside
This heart of mine,
As I find my tears
Do not belong to me.

It doesn't get much better than this.

They flow everlastingly
Through those that Love,

In Eternal Rivers
That nourish Life,
And wash away
Our sins,
Assuage our grief,
And transform,
In the mirror of our memory
Into tears of forgiveness,
Comforted by our Belief.

Clouds of disbelief
Only block the Sun,
Placed in the Firmament Above
By God on the second day

Of His Love.
Into this vast expanse,
He set the moon, the stars and the sun,
To shine down upon
Everyone.

sky heart

Some people never see the Light until the day they die. – Neil Diamond

Do not let the darkness
And doubt o
f others,
The fear that knows not Love,

Shield you
From His Comfort.
The shelter you seek
From the storms of living
Dwells not in the elements of life.
It lay in wait,
Sacred and Silent in patient Vigil,
Inside a heart
Filled with Love,
Devoid of hate.

You can travel for miles
In your child’s smiles.
Far beyond the borders
Of this moment,
Into a tomorrow
Which will never end.

Such is the Love of God
In you,
Eternal Love
Flowing everlastingly,
And in the very same moment,
Into and out of
A Vast Sacred Sea.

  The reason God is real.

  Unique
In all the ways of the world,
The Blessed Love of every child

Is the Salvation
Of all Mankind,
The justification for being,
The Hope of tomorrow fulfilled,
The end of all doubt,
The reason
God is real.

God Loved us
Enough to share
The Love of a Child,
His Child.

And no greater Love
Could He feel.

His Child looked at Mankind
Through other children’s eyes,
And shared the vibrant Love,
The Eternal Warmth,
Hope everlasting,
From Above.

We pretend never and are Forever.

Every kind thought
Tells us who we are,
Every deed
Where we are,
Every Prayer
Why we are.

And what is Love?

Easy to ask,
So easy to see.
Love is the Mother
Who gives us life.
Love is the breath
Of her precious being.

Like the soft wind blowing,
As God formed man from
The dust of this Earth
And breathed into his nostrils
The breath of Love we call Life,
And child of clay
Became a living being.

A Mother whispers of this
Love Everlasting,
As she looks deeply into our eyes
Promising tomorrow,
With Love
That never dies.

rose

  Such is the Love all around us.

What is Love?

Love is God in us.
Ask and He will reveal

Love,
Pure,

Powerful,
Everlasting,
The only thing
That is Real.

If we could but know
That every child is ours,
That every child is us,

And we are all Sacred Children
Of God.

Our children are of our Love,
Our lives of the far reaches of Forever,
And our sins made of
What is given,
To be forgiven.

Leaves

My friends,
The Love of God is in us
And all around us,
In the
Leaves that flutter
Gently in the wind,

The Colors of evening shades,
Shadows of silver
Floating slowly over
The landscapes of our brief lives,
As we pretend never,
And are Forever.
Such is the Love all around us,
Here,
And ever after.

A Mother’s precious Love,
Is a Sacred Sacrifice
For those who come after.
The precious Love of a Mother,
Forever in Love,
And forever after.

Every child is ours, every child is us.

“Children are mankind’s best and last hope.
Like the young of all creatures, they want to like,
they want to love, and they will love,
unless deliberately and carefully taught otherwise.
For this is the true education
– of the heart.”
Oskar Schindler

Oskar and Emilie Schlindler

Oskar and Emilie Schindler – With rare courage and deep compassion they saved hundreds of precious lives during World War II.

Matter is NOT the ONLY reality

Quantum mechanics has questioned

the material foundations of the world
by showing that atoms and subatomic particles
are not really solid objects,
they do not exist with certainty
at definite spatial locations and definite times.
Most importantly, Quantum Mechanics
explicitly introduced the mind
into its basic conceptual structure,
since it was found that particles being observed
and the observer, are linked.
This phenomenon implies
that the consciousness of the observer
is vital to the existence
of the physical events being observed,
and that mental events
affect the physical world.”

Matter is NOT the only reality.
In fact,
It may not be reality
at all.

The MIND diet
may slow brain aging by 7.5 years

The MIND diet,
which is short for “Mediterranean-DASH Diet
Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay,”
was developed by Martha Clare Morris, ScD,
a nutritional epidemiologist, and her colleagues.

Everyone experiences decline with aging;
and Alzheimer’s disease is now
the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.

 As the name suggests,
the MIND diet is a hybrid of the Mediterranean
and DASH
(Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diets.
Both have been found to reduce the risk
of cardiovascular conditions,
like hypertension, heart attack and stroke. read more

The MIND diet
has 15 dietary components,
including 10 “brain-healthy food groups”

The study found that to avoid the devastating effects of
cognitive decline, you must limit intake
of the designated unhealthy foods,
especially butter (less than 1 tablespoon a day),
sweets and pastries, whole fat cheese,
and fried or fast food.

To adhere to and benefit from the MIND diet,
a person would need to eat
at least three servings of whole grains,
a green leafy vegetable
and one other vegetable every day,
along with a glass of red-grape juice,
snack most days on nuts,
have beans every other day or so,
eat poultry and berries at least twice a week
and fish at least once a week.

Berries are the only fruit specifically
to be included in the MIND diet.
Blueberries are one of the more potent foods
in terms of protecting the brain.
