THE NEW BIKE

The following story was one I had published in the Science of Mind Magazine in August of 1989. The story was written as  a tribute to my dear Mother and my first Step Dad. Those two wonderful people along with my other family members taught me the values of being a loving and kind human being, and the love and gratitude I feel for them cannot be expressed in mere words. I do hope you enjoy the story.










THE REDBIRD

The following story was one I had published in the Science of Mind Magazine in November of 1988. I do hope you will enjoy reading it. These stories I am sharing now are ones that I wrote long ago when I was first learning to become the human being I wanted to become. The previous entry (The Sun Beam) was the first one that Science of Mind magazine accepted and published. This entry was the second one. Over the years I have learned many, many things and some of my beliefs have changed accordingly. But my basic belief that we are all ONE and that all we need do is to treat each other with love and respect, remains my core belief system. And my hope is that soon every human being will begin to  do just that. This life is short, very short. So may we all remain in the One Eternal Moment, and be good to ourselves, and even better to others.

WELCOME TO MY WORLD

Thought I'd share with you today a small glimpse into my world. Once again I remind you this is only my "Truth".  It may be yours also and I hope it is. But if not that doesn't change the fact that I love you. In my world I don't see black, white, red, or yellow, instead I see family, friends, and human beings.I don't see politicians, I see fellow human beings. Instead of seeing activists, I see human beings. Instead of seeing Christians, Moslems, atheists,hoodlums, etc I see fellow brothers and sisters. Do I agree with everyone's beliefs and actions? Of course not. But I do see a human being with a heart and whether or not I agree with them will never make me stop loving them. My dream is that one day we will all learn to live in peace, with respect and love for all. Welcome to my world.

SOMEBODY JUST TELL ME TO SHUT UP

There are plenty of times in my experience when I try to explain what I am feeling to another human being,  the words just don't seem to want to come out right. I've lost count of the times that someone has misunderstood what I have said. And at times these misunderstandings have caused the other person to be angry or hurt with me. And most of the time I don't even know it! I admit the words I try to explain myself with can really seem to confuse rather than explain. So maybe I should just keep my thoughts to myself more often. But who really cares anyway? I was reading this morning from the book The Wheel of Time, and came across this quotation from don Juan Matus. Guess it about sums up the frustration I sometimes feel in trying to share my feelings with the world. The quote reads:


 The flaw with words is that they always make us feel enlightened, but when we turn around to face the world they always fail us and we end up facing the world as we always have, without enlightenment.. For this reason, a warrior seeks to act rather than to talk, and to this effect, he gets a new description where talking is not that important, and where new acts have new reflections.


So today I use only these words thinking they cannot possibly be misunderstood by anyone. But then again anything is possible. And the words I leave you with today is this: I truly do love all of you and wish you only the very best!

LIVING FOR THE SECOND TIME

Hey folks. Sure hope all of you are feeling great at this moment and find yourself immersed in the Sea of Light that is filled with much love, peace, and kindness. Today I want to share with you a few lines from the book titled: Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. Mr. Frankl was a holocaust survivor and the book came about from his time spent as a prisoner all those years ago. He states the following: "Live as if you were living already for the second time, and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now. Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of their personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he(she) loves him(her)."


May each one of us this very moment make the choice to love everyone else, especially those that we find the hardest to love. Let us not judge or condemn others until we can honestly say we are perfect. And since that is never going to happen then we will stop judging and condemning and this world will be much better off. Much love to all of you beautiful people.

FOLLOWING A PATH WITH HEART

I want to share with you the following words of wisdom from don Juan Matus


 "Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore a warrior must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if he feels that he should not follow it, he must not stay with it under any conditions. His decision to keep on that path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. He must look at every path closely and deliberately. There is a question that a warrior has to ask, mandatorily: Does this path have a heart?"
  "All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. However, a path without a heart is never enjoyable. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy-it does not make a warrior work at liking it; it makes for a joyful journey; as long as a man follows it, he is one with it."




My sincerest hope is that the path you now find yourself on is one that is truly blessed with lots of love and heart! If not may you decide to leave that path and instead choose one with heart. Blessings to all of you dear folks now and always. May we all be good to ourselves and even better to others.
