The Beautiful Tapestry of Life / What Children Need Most / Classes Resume on January 5

Dedicated
with all the Love
in my Heart
to our daughter
Annie,
born on a very special and Sacred
December 29.
On that precious day
we truly felt
the Love of God.

“The love of God
is greater far

than tongue or pen
can ever tell.”
– Frederick Lehman

“Blessed is he,
who in the name of charity and good will,
Shepherds the weak
through the valley of darkness,
for he is truly his Brother’s keeper
and the finder of lost Children.”
– Ezekiel 25:17

Love is the most Beautiful thing on Earth.

An Existential dimension
is woven into the Beautiful Tapestry of Life.

Existentialism is a realm of Philosophy
concerned with
the meaning of Human existence.
It looks closely at Love,
and the meaning of Life,
and at death.
It looks at how we deal with
and value
the meaning of our own
very brief existence.

baby-asleep-c

           I exist for you.

 As parents of a precious child,
this existential dimension leads us
to questions
later in Life:

Who was I?
What was my purpose in Life?
Where was my existence directed?
What did I achieve in Life?
What was the meaning of my Life
to others?

But, in reflection,
as the parent
of a new born child,
your Heart simply said:

I am here.
I exist.
And I exist for you.
I will let nothing harm you.
My words will always welcome
and warm you.
Let me be everything you are.
Let me dry your tears
and always be beside you,
to guard you and guide you,
and Love you
until the end
of time.

lady-and-light

          It is your Light.

Such is the Love
of a Mother and a Father
for their precious
Child.

Such is the Love
of your Father in Heaven above
for you.

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee –
ye must be born again”
– John 3:5,7

My Dear Friends,
everyday
your child is born
again.
And the answers
to Life’s existential questions
may be found
in the very first moment
you held your newborn
child:

I am here.
I exist.
And I exist for you.

tree-in-cloud-ring-b

Let me guard you and guide you.

You can venture into
sophisticated aspects
of Love.

But this Love,
this Existential Love,
cannot be conveyed
in mere words.

It is
your shelter from the storm,
your light,
your freedom
from ever knowing
the night.

This Love will follow you
wherever you go,
because it never left you.
It will guide you
when you never have to
think about it.

My Friends,
the manner we choose

to Live and Love
becomes Life,
a truly beautiful
Existential existence.
It blossoms
as the Truth
and is the same Love
God feels for His Child,
YOU.

Or Love and Life
can become
a Lie.

many-colored-sunrise

It has been searching for you.

Love
is the simplest thing on Earth,
the most powerful,
and the most beautiful.

To find it
all we need do
is surrender
our Heart.
And to whom
do we surrender
our fragile Hearts?

To everyone.

Love existential,
My Dear Friends,
will find you.
It has been searching for you.
Look around.
You will see it
in the eyes of everyone,
and every Living thing
you meet.
You felt such Love
on the day
of your Child’s birth,
and on the day
your were born.

Everyone
has a Heart,
a Human Heart,
that longs to Love
someone.

Like you.

Goodnight.

    A truly beautiful Existential existence.

“Love is the only way to grasp another human being
in the innermost core of his personality.
No one can become fully aware
of the very essence of another human being
unless he loves him.

For the first time in my life
victorI saw the truth
as it is set into song by so many poets,
proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers.
The truth –
that Love is the ultimate and highest goal
to which man can aspire.
Then I grasped the meaning
of the greatest secret that human poetry
and human thought and belief have to impart:
The salvation of man
is through love
and in love.”

Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

The Beauty and Mystery of Life / Life’s Simple Seven / Friday: Monnig Meteorite Gallery

“From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it’s the Hope of Hopes,
it’s the Love of Loves,
it’s the Heart of every man.”
– Bette Midler

flowers-and-yellow-sun

     Beauty can liberate your Spirit.

We are never more
than far away.
But wherever we are,
near or far,
we cannot behold
all of God’s Beauty
that surrounds us,
if we look
only with our eyes.

“He has made everything beautiful
in its time.
Also, he has put Eternity
into man’s Heart . . .”
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Beauty
can liberate your Spirit.
Think upon it.
It has happened
many times before.

path-b“You’ll find Beauty
in the simplest things
and in the deepest depths
of complexity.
Beauty exists
for the purpose of
filling your Heart
with Joy.

Beauty’s reason
is pure delight.
Take delight
in Beauty
and it becomes
even MORE Beautiful.

Behold the Beauty
that fills your Life.
It is a Blessing
that has NO
equal.”
Ralph Marston

The Resplendence
of His Love
resides
even in a beautiful drop of rain,
nestled in the arms
of shades of green
on a leaf,
in a tree,
and in the chill
of evening’s breath,
with the warmth
of someone’s arms
around you.

“I wish someone’s arms eilene
were holding me as tight.
But the devil wind blows harder on me,
cold and bare
And someone’s arms won’t be reaching
for there’s nobody there.”
Eilen Jewell

     God’s Beauty surrounds us

The shadow’s call
will fly away
on our journey
to the Light of day,
and night overcome,
to find the Sun
filling the Promise
of a Beautiful
new day,
a Promise
that lives within
everyone.

How much
of Life
is left to live
and Love?

We are here
but a single fleeting moment,
like a drop of dew
at dawn,
never to stay.
Life

cast into the illusion
of a night and a day.

lake-and-sun-set

                    The illusion

Yes,
Life is brief
at best.
But one hundred percent
of the rest of your Life
is left
for you to Love,
to hold in warm embrace,
to share
with God’s Grace.

My wish for you
is that you truly live

every day,
and save
your death,
for the day
you die.

We choose
to truly live

or just exist,
and die a little
each day.

sea-waves-b

Save your death for the day you die.

My Dear Friends,
your mind
is NOT beating
to the rhythm of Life.
It feels not
any emotion.

It is simply
an intermediate
repository
of short term memory,
a biochemical processor
of mere momentary thought,
reflecting upon
Love’s labors lost
and found,
Life Crowned
and made to appear
profound.

Love looks not with the eyes,
but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid 
painted blind.”
William Shakespeare

Long term memory
engrams
reside a trillion fold,
and within every cell
of your very fragile body,
especially
the Heart.
Once in Love,
always in Love.
Once hurt by Love,
the pain is forever
felt.

drop-on-leaf-b

Nestled in the arms of shades of green.

Life
expresses itself
in action
and
emotion.
Life happens
from us,
not to us.

beautiful-rose

         Dwell in the Beauty.

Life
is the Flower,
but Love,
my Dear,
is the Nectar.

“Life
without Love,
is like a tree
without
blossoms or fruit.”
Kahlil Gibran

And what is the message of Love?
  It is
the Happiness and the Joy
YOU
bring to others.

The Beauty and Mystery of Life

You know,
my life is based on a true story,

  and so is yours.
And the truth is:
we have not truly lived
every day.

Life is the Gift
of every single
day.

  If you dwell
in the Beauty and Mystery of Life,
  how could you possibly
be sad,
lonely?

  Love is the aroma of
everything that abides
after a Spring rain,
the softness of the grass
upon which you lie,
the warmth of a sunny day,
the taste of a ripe peach,
whatever God allows
to come your way
.

compassion-b

Love is the boundless Tapestry
of God’s Beautiful Landscape
of Life,
and Loving,
and Living,
and Longing
to be.

Life is truly lived
moment to moment,
smile to smile,
handshake to handshake,
Loving deed
to Loving deed,

to meet someone’s
need.

leaves-b

    What is the message of Love?

My friends,
we need not fear
death.
Life is not really lost
on the day
we die.

It is only lost
while we live:
lost in sorrow,
lost in a sigh,
lost
in a precious moment
that passed you by,
lost in the sadness
that made you cry,
lost in what
your tender Heart felt
but did not say,
lost in never
feeling grateful to God
for the Beautiful Gift
of another new
Day.

white-flower-c

   The shadow’s call will fly away.

Yes,
we die
moment by moment
and not
in a day.

Don’t be living
to die.

Life
is the most exciting
when we Love someone
more than Life,
when we transcend
this moment
of our awareness,
to discover
we are alive inside
the Hopes and Dreams
of someone else,
that Life
is more than living,
it is Dreaming the Dream
that Love
is all there is,
and all
that should ever
be.

mts-and-sun-b

Dreaming the Dream that Love is all there is.

When we awake
inside the Heart of another,
we discover
the reason for being –
the Beauty of Love.

We die
day by day,
moment by moment.

Life is lost
wallowing in the poverty

of selfish actions.
It is lost wasting
the precious Gift
of time.

We destroy the Gift
of our Life

each moment it is not
fully lived.

Now,
let us busy ourselves
Giving,
Sharing,
Smiling,
Laughing,
Daring,

Forgiving,
Loving,
and truly Living.

Give Life a chance.
Take a chance
on Love!

Goodnight.

We die moment by moment and not in a day.

“Live as if you were living

the first time.”

‘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.
