I want to borrow a phrase from Nike corporation today. Their catch phrase is Just Do It. Well today I say Just Love It. No matter what is going on in your life right now. No matter what anyone else is doing. No matter what anyone else thinks....... Just Love It. Love yourself, love each other, love life! The best you can do is just forgive and love, love , love. May all of you have a most wonderful new week ahead! Let your love light shine!

Today I share with you a song from the late great John Lennon

People say I'm crazy, doing what I'm doing
They give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I tell them I'm ok watching shadows on the wall
Surely you're not happy now, you're no longer on the ball

People say I'm lazy, dreaming my life away
They give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
 I tell them that I'm doing fine, just sitting here doing time

People asking questions lost in confusion
I tell them there's no problems only solutions
Well they shake their heads and look at me
As if I've lost my mind

I tell them there's no hurry I'm just sitting here doing time
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go I just had to let it go

There it is my friends. May all of you wonderful folks be able to let it go and enjoy the moment you find yourself in right now. Be good to yourself and even better to others.

Keep it simple stupid. I've been aware of that old adage for many years now. And still I find myself at times being drawn back into the illusions of this world we call home. I am reminded of a verse from a song written by Ric Ocasik who was the lead singer of a group called The Cars. The verse goes like this: Maybe you're on a mission trying to get a leg across,, but nobody wants to listen, cause everyone is getting lost.  As I listen to this song I am reminded of how we as a human race cannot seem to agree as to how to end all the negative stuff going on around us every day. It seems to me that even the "good" people who wish to see a change don't really know how to go about doing it. One belief clashes with another and on and on it goes. In the meantime while we continue to argue and try to get our message across, the "bad" people continue to keep us chained down by telling us what we can eat, what we can drink, smoke, or even how we should dress! I don't get it! Maybe its just me I don't know. Still I try to get "my" message across to others. And that message is just to love each other and realize we are all ONE. I don't know if anyone is listening or not and sometimes I think I will just learn to let go and just "watch" what is going on. I tend to think that maybe my message seems too simple for others to accept. Us human beings tend to think that we have to make things "hard" to get anything done at all. Guess I'll just continue on my personal path of love and kindness and keep it simple! To all of you I share my love and hope you all have a most wonderful weekend ahead.

Once again I find myself wondering why things have to happen as they do. There is just so much violence, racism, hate, and misunderstanding in an otherwise beautiful world. I don't think it is this way because we cannot agree on so many things, but rather that when we disagree we feel that the other person or belief is wrong and we want so much to be "right" ourselves, that we oft times go as far as killing each other. Why do we feel we have to be the one that is right? And even if we are or are not then why should we feel that we have to make the other one admit that they are wrong. For an example, we can all see the violence and hate playing out on the front we call terrorism.  A religious sect of certain believers are so intense in making the entire world turn to their interpretation that they are slaying innocent men, women, and children in the name of a god they believe in. Why can't they instead just go about living their beliefs and accepting that everyone else has the same right to believe their own way? That way no one would be killing another human being. This is an extreme example of what happens when we cannot just agree to disagree and leave it that way. Certain groups in all countries seem to want to have and exert their power over everyone else. There is no government anywhere that is totally innocent of forcing their will on others. When it comes down to one person's belief system against anothers' the same thing should apply. If you can't agree then just accept the fact that one of you may be right and the other wrong, but also that the possibility exist that neither on e of you is right. This world seems to be getting more crazy by the day. I think we have enough problems just dealing with our planet and all the changes it is going through. If and only if all of us take the time to see that we are all "ONE" will we be able to survive as a race of human beings. Whatever you believe, whatever you do or say will not change the fact that all of us are in trouble unless we learn to love each other, treat each other with respect, and wish the best for everyone. Those seeking to rule the world will be in for a sad reckoning when they finally realize there will be nothing to control if the world continues down the path we are headed. I don't try to convince you of anything other than to love.  Give love, accept love, be love. It hurts me to see all the violence and stuff going on not only here in America but all across the world. I see all kinds of groups of people just being led along a path like a herd of sheep. Too many have been entranced in  a belief system where war, misunderstanding, hate and the like is always present. As I see it we should embrace love, work together for the common good, and stop living our lives in fear. Nor should any one man or group be in total power over the rest of us. But then again, that is only one man's opinion. That is mine and mine alone and I know I could be wrong. But if I am, at least I am being wrong in a way where I try my best to never hurt anyone. Today I wish for each of you a moment filled with pure love and personal freedom to discover the "INNER YOU" who is like myself just tired of all the false teachings, the hate and the violence. Here's hoping it all ceases to be real soon. HUGS for all.

What is the last thing you think about when you go to bed to get some rest? I sure hope it is something positive. I have heard it said that what our last thoughts are before bedtime is what we awaken to the next morning. If that is true then it is no wonder why so many of us struggle each day. If we are having thoughts about what we have to do, or what we have to face up to, then our sleep will not be quite as peaceful as they could be. If we are worried about something in the future instead of focusing on the NOW moment I can see trouble just waiting to happen. Here is the thing as I see it. If we can truly relax before hitting that bed and focus on all the "good" stuff in our lives, then our sleep will probably be peaceful. As human beings it is tough to keep our inner most thoughts on love, peace, and joy when we are struggling in any area of our lives. The more one thinks about all the "bad" stuff in our world the more our subconscious keeps on giving us more of the same. I would like to share with you the way I try to make sure I get a restful and peaceful sleep. When I lay down I take a few moments to just relax my body and my mind. This is not always simple to do because like most of us there are a lot of things of a negative nature going on in my subconscious and conscious mind. I usually use some kind of meditation technique to relax and to clear my mind of all the garbage that have made their way to my mind. Once I am relaxed I then just give thanks to the Great Spirit for allowing me to be alive in this 3D world. I don't ask for anything because I know that Spirit already knows what I need. I only express gratitude. I also go back in my mind of the day just past and think of all it entailed. Did I do anything that hurt another? Did I do my very best in sharing unconditional love with everyone? Did I smile a lot? Did I say hello to others I met on the street? Did I hold that door open for another? Did my deeds hurt anyone's feelings? Did I accept the best not only for myself but others as well? And if I do remember something I said or did that affected anyone in a negative way I make sure I try to not repeat that mistake tomorrow. I try my best to be brutally honest with myself as I ask these questions. And if I think anyone has offended me instead of cursing them I try to see why I allowed them to do so. After these questions I then just allow my mind to quiet itself and I focus on the changes I would like to see in this world. And what I can do to help with that healing. Usually this helps me to sleep better and also to forgive myself for any misdeeds I may have done today. I make lots of mistakes along the way of this life but I work diligently every day to try and improve on the way my life is going. Do I always sleep soundly and restful? No, not always since for some reason I have to deal with night terrors very often in my dreams. Probably some of that is due to the medications I have to take for physical pain. But with everything else aside I can assure you I go to sleep with a "clean" slate for tomorrow. I believe all of us should take a real hard look at ourselves every night and see if we are doing all we can to help this world be one of peace and happiness for all. I'm just one man and know I can't solve all the problems but I also realize I can make myself a better human being. And if even one life has been made easier by me being here then I have succeeded. (Thank you Ralph Waldo Emerson) May all of us begin right now to do any thing we can to assist in healing the world. One step at a time, one person at a time. Working together we can make a difference! My hope is that you join us on the path of learning how to love. I will be leaving for a couple of weeks to see our kids and grandkids so I may not be posting until we return home. But be assured all of you will remain with me in my heart until we meet again. Take this moment. Enjoy it! Embrace it! Love it! Try to do a random act of kindness for someone and I'm sure at the end of the day you will feel better about yourself. And with that you may just enjoy your best night of sleep in a while! I leave you now with thoughts of perfect love, perfect peace, and perfect joy.

Have you ever felt afraid? Experienced fear at its deepest level? Probably so, unless you are either brain dead or highly experienced at dealing with fear. We humans are made in a  way that fear can either serve us well or make prisoners out of us. Personally, I think is only an illusion brought about by the lack of peaceful and loving thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I still have bouts of fear quite often. But I am learning to deal with it in a positive way. Today I want to share with you a bit of the short story I wrote many years ago. I never got around to getting it published but I still feel it is relevant in todays world. I titled this work of mine, Illusions and Paradox. I hope you get some good from it. And if even one person finds a little "truth" in it then my work has been a success.

Here is another way of looking at fear. Let's say you are fearful of something or the other. Then one sunny day you are forced to face your fear head on. An example:  Let's say you have always had a deep seated fear of camels. You don't quite know why. Just say it is because you are intimidated by any strange looking animal who smells funny and has a hump or two on its back. Maybe it is an irrational fear but a real fear nevertheless. Now just suppose you go out for an early morning walk and by some strange twist of fate you wind up in the middle of a barren desert. About noontime you are so tired and hot you begin to hallucinate. Maybe you see naked dancing women or Ed McMahon holding a check for ten million dollars made out to you. Even though you like these scenarios you know the sun is frying your brain big time and the end as you know it is quickly approaching. It is either get out of this desert and head for a cold beer, or go off with Ed and see why it took him so long to get you that check you have dreamed about all these years. Then all at once you spot this dirty, smelly, old two humped camel. Too tired to run or get away you are now forced to face one of your biggest fears. With caution you climb aboard this old ship of the desert. Then he quickly takes you back home. Now sitting in front of your television and sipping on that cold beer, you find you suddenly have a very warm spot in your heart for not only your life saving camel but also for all the old hump backed camels in the world. Then you realize your fear of camels are gone, completely erased from your memory bank. You have faced your fears and it is no longer a deep seeded fear. How about that! So was the fear real? Or just an illusion? Think about it! I could go on with more examples of facing your fears. But I won't. The one I did use probably seems a little far-fetched to you but I used it in hopes of showing how our fears are really a little silly at times. But hopefully I made you think a little bit. Now it is up to you to replace the camel with your own fear and face up to it. Try this and see what happens. Go ahead, give it a try as silly as it may sound. Maybe one of these days you will find that all your fears are not really fears at all. They are just the fragments of an under explained mind. To sum up the paradox of fear---there is no such thing as fear but we must experience fear to overcome it. To overcome fear it must be real but after getting past it we find it wasn't really a fear at all. Now, there's a paradox for you! Hey I'd better stop before I confuse myself!

You may think I'm crazy, you may think I'm on to something. Then again you may not think anything. And you know what? That's ok too. Hope you enjoyed reading a little bit of the stuff that I think about. Once again I remind you that this stuff is only my "truth". Follow me and we'd both probably get lost! But I sincerely hope each of you are able to face your fears before they have a chance to be a real problem. Today just give love, accept love, and be love. Love yourself and others even more. A much better world awaits all of us. Please join me in dreaming of a world that is filled with only love for everyone. No fear, no hate(which is fear), no prejudice nothing but love. May we all keep on dreaming until those dreams come true. I leave all of you with thoughts of perfect love, peace, and joy.
