I hope I got all the words right from the classic tune by the late and great John Lennon.But even if I might have changed it a tad it still reflects my personal hopes and aspirations for all of us as a human family.From me to you I wish you all the very best of everything.I would implore you to become the unconditional love and to let your light shine brightly now and always. Please ,right now, do a little something nice for someone and become a part of the solution! Happy holidays to everyone ."HUGS"

I sure hope all you good folks out there are feeling great and that things are going smoothly for you. Once again its that time of year when we think about family and friends with warm thoughts and try to get together to visit.The Christmas season seems to bring out the best in some people and they go out of their way to be nice to others. Back when I was a much younger man I used to send out Christmas cards to my friends in July.July cause it was the middle of the year and usually the hottest month here in Kentucky.They all thought I had gone over the cliff or maybe smoked a little too much wacky weed. But I quickly assured them it was only to remind them and myself too that we should carry the Spirit of Christmas with us all year round. Not being a religious man myself made no differnece as to what anyone else believed. I figured that if we could remind ourselves to just be nicer and more friendly all year round it would make for a better world.So the message I was trying to convey then is the same one I try to convey now. And that is for each of us to learn the way of "unconditional love" and to be as nice as we can to everyone we meet, not only during some holiday but all the time. Well, I stopped sending the cards years ago but I still try to act as if every day is a holiday filled with love and goodness.It has been said by people much smarter than myself that if you want to see a change in something, you must first become the change.It took me a long time to understand that but now I clearly see that is right.If you want to see a world of happy people, you then need to first become a happy person yourself.If you want to see a world living in peace you must become a peaceful person.I could go on and on but Im sure you get the pictureThe Dalai Lama once stated the following; "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." How very true that is my friends.I will now leave you with best wishes for a safe and happy moment wherever you happen to be.And remember to be the thing you wish to see unfold.And please dont forget to try and do something nice for someone right now!

How many times have you heard someone say it wasn't their fault bad things seem to come their way? Or maybe, how often have you yourself used that statement regarding some event in your own life? Probably more than one would care to admit to. I know I have been guilty of that many times in my own life.Granted there are some things that happen to us and it really isn't our fault, or so it seems.But if one would only take a much closer look at their inner most thoughts they may be truly amazed at the times they have subconsciously given birth to the thing they despise.Only an open mind that is able to surpass the human ego will be able to fully comprehend that we are usually the root cause of all our "problems".I know its hard for any one to fully accept responsibility for their ills and to admit that their thinking has sown the seeds of discord in their lives.Thomas Troward once stated:"It is therefore not surprising that the creative power of our thought, thus used in a wrong direction, has produced the limitations of which we complain." I would ask you to think about that quote and see if it rings even a bit true.My hope is that all of you are right now using that creative mind of yours in a way that is not only bringing peace, joy, and comfort into your own experience, but also helping to expunge a bit of the darkness that is so prevalent in our 3d world.I now take leave with hopes of a most wonderful day and week ahead for all of you.And please remember to try and do a little something good for someone else."HUGS" to all
