Here's an idea for you. To all the parents and grandparents out there spending lavishly on Christmas gifts for their kids and grandkids how about buying one last gift for them that they can take and give to a needy family or an organization who distributes toys to needy children. Not only will this bring your kids joy but it will encourage them to be mindful of those who are less fortunate. Here in the United States millions of dollars are spent each year on gifts for those we love. That's all well and good but I am even more impressed at all the good folks out there who take time to buy and donate gifts to those who don't have any money for these things. And I love it when our children want to share their happiness with others. So this holiday season I hope you show your children that giving is even more important than receiving. May all of you have a safe and fun filled Christmas and a very happy New Year!

"All we are saying is give peace a chance."  This comes from a song by the late, great, John Lennon who was gunned down by a madman while he was in his prime. What an absolute waste! Chapman, the man who murdered Mr. Lennon years ago, is rotting away somewhere while
Lennon's words and music still live on. Many a man has been slain for only trying to make this world a better place for everybody. That I will never fully understand. The title of this blog is Dreaming and as John Lennon once said "You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one, I hope some day you will join us, and the world will live as one. I still have that dream inside of me and I'll probably die without ever seeing my dream fulfilled but at least I will never give up. Personally I think its time for another era of "togetherness" and I intend to do whatever I can to get this accomplished. And my hope is that each one of you good folks will join me in that dream. Again I quote John Lennon who once said: A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together is a reality. Right now I invite you to join me in this dream. I hope you will. Just remember, peace begins with each of us in our hearts and in our minds. You right now have an opportunity to do something nice for someone and if you do that then you will be joining me and many others who have this same dream. Be good to yourselves and even better to others! "HUGS" to all.

I believe everything in this life will "die" but yet "live" on. I know that is a paradox but still I believe it to be true. Nature teaches us so much if we but take a moment to notice. So much beauty in nature while at the same time it can be so destructive. Here in western Kentucky we see many storms come and go every year. In the spring and summer and the hot days of autumn there is always a chance of tornados and severe thunderstorms. In the winter we have snow storms, ice storms, and at times even a deep freeze. I have always been in awe of the power of Mother Nature. As a kid I loved to watch as the hot summer day quickly turned into an awesome display of thunder, lightning, and high winds. But I am progressing a bit. Today I wanted to share with you my memories of Leo F. Buscaglia, Ph.D. You may know of him and his writings or maybe not. I was introduced to his writings several years ago back in the 1980's. A co worker was reading one of his books and told me that she thought I would enjoy reading it also. Well, I did read it and fell in love with his work immediately. The book was entitled Bus Nine To Paradise. After I read the book I wrote a letter to Mr. Buscaglia and he answered it right away. I really didn't expect to get a letter back but hen again Leo was a very unique fellow. He was known as the Love Doctor. All his books were about love. How to love, how to be love how to show love , how to accept love and anything you could think of about love I guess he wrote about it. He even taught at a University and the class he taught/ Yeah, it was called Love. He was such a standout personality and he practiced what he taught. Before he made his transition from this earthly life I was fortunate enough to be able to correspond a few times with him through personal letters. I would loved to have met him face to face but still I felt a kindred spirit with him. Well yesterday I was out in the yard raking leaves which are now in the process of changing their form from tree leaves to mulch. Back into the dust of the earth (or as I prefer, back into the oneness of all)  only to later come back in another form. as I was doing this I was reminded of one of Leo's books titled Freddie the Leaf. This was a really short book about the leaf which had fallen from the tree and was in the midst of transition. I may suggest you take a book at he book yourself if you can find the time. Also I remembered a story from one of his other books. In it  was told of how Leo really loved leaves. Especially leaves that had fallen from the trees in the fall. The story went that one autumn while all the leaves where on the ground everyone in Leo's neighborhood were busy raking , burning, and doing away with the leaves. Leo's remained on the ground at this house.  The neighbors were concerned that unless his were raked it would be an ugly sight on the neighborhood. So a few of them knocked on his door and asked him if they could rake the and burn the leaves for him. Being the man he was Leo knew they wanted the yards all to be clean and neat but yet he did not want his leaves to be destroyed. So to make everybody happy guess what he did? He raked the leaves up, brought them inside his house and spread them around! Everybody was then happy. I love that story and think it tells you what a unique and loving man Leo was. So as I raked the leaves I thought about Leo and thought to myself, Man what a great job he had, teaching others how to love. I miss you Leo! The next time you see a leaf that has fallen may it remind you that you too may at times seem to be dying but in reality all you are doing is making a transition into something different. That goes mentally as well as physically I do believe. Everything has its season. My wish for you is that all your transitions will be as easy as possible. Remember to love. Love ,love and then love some more. And as always if you will do a little something nice for someone just because you can. "HUGS"

People moving out, people moving in
Why, Because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and I'll set you free
Rap on brother, rap on
Well, the only person talking about love thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation
Ball of confusion, That's what the world is today
Evolution, revolution gun control, sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up to soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve everything
And the band played on
So round and around and around we go
Where the world's headed, nobody knows
Oh, great googalooga can't you hear me talking to you?
Just a ball of confusion
Oh yeah, That's what the world is today......................................................

These words above are lyrics from an old Temptations song from the early 70's or maybe even the late 60's. I wanted to use these words in my entry today because I feel they still are just as true and as poignant today as they were when originally penned. For the past few weeks I have been trying to come to terms with my innermost feelings and beliefs. I have been in dialogue with folks who are much smarter than I probably ever will be and they have given me much to think on. Mostly it concerns my way of "seeing" this 3D life. I consider myself a simple man and I have been just trying to follow my heart in everything I do. As I ponder all the questions, all the possibilities, all the teachings, and belief systems I still cannot fully comprehend why I am here and what it is I am supposed to be doing. For a long time now I had myself convinced that if I tried to be a human being who demonstrated unconditional love for everyone then I was fulfilling my purpose for being here. So many possibilities have made me become quite dizzy trying to "understand" it all. Where did I come from? How did I get here? Have I always been here? Is there a God? Were ancient astronauts from other galaxies the ones who put us here? Is reincarnation for real? Am I going to one day "die"? If so, what happens then? Am I judged to be either "good" or "bad"? Do I get a reward? Or do I go to a hell? Will I remember anything of this earthly life when I die? Will I ever be reunited with the ones I've loved so much? I could go on and on with all kids of questions but I won't do that. I suppose the one thing that has been bothering me most these past few weeks is questioning myself as to what I am doing here. I've been told this is all an illusion, that in reality I am pure consciousness being led astray by other beings who have conjured up this world. I have heard that if someone shakes a war veteran's hand as I have and said thank you, by doing so I have given the illusion of war more strength. That maybe I should not say anything about something that is not "real". I don't know. After searching my heart the only thing I can come up with is that I should continue to show love , be love, accept love, for that is really all I am. Love is really all any of us are. You may not understand, you may even violently disagree with me but that is okay too. I really don't think I will ever live long enough to fully understand things a s they are. Maybe I should just stop thinking about all the different possibilities and just focus on being the best human being I possibly can. I hope I can do that from now on. As I see it, it really doesn't much matter if I can explain it or not. Just as long as it continues to feel right in my heart. I intend to keep an open mind on things and as always I remind you that these beliefs are mine and only mine. I don't claim to know what you need to be free and happy. I would ask all of you though, to take a short pause and think of something you can do right now to bring a little more love into this world. Life may well indeed be some kind of shadows or illusions but I figure the shadows need a little love also. Do something nice for someone because you can. Be good to yourself and even better to those you meet! "HUGS"

Over the past few days I have been prodded by some very great thinkers to once again look at the path I am on in this 3D world of ours. Without dear friends like these folks who always inspire me to look deeper within myself I would probably just dry up and blow away! So to these folks I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. And please keep on prodding me to explore things I have yet to see. For today's entry I want to share with you these thoughts that come from the Science of Mind magazine published in January 2011. I share this now because I feel it relates to what I have been thinking on these past couple of days. These words are as follows----People yearn to feel happy, creative, and appreciated, and to be loved and to love.  As we look at our lives today, I know some are dissatisfied with how things are going and some are satisfied. How about you? There's always that yearning to keep life growing; there's always tomorrow---and what can be. We give enormous power to outside forces----things, situations, and people---that we perceive are running our lives; however, the very process of thought by which we assign power to those outer forces is exactly the same process of thought that, used differently, could heal, uplift, and transform our lives right now. That's why our founder Ernest Holmes said, "That which you are searching for, you are searching with." So my friends I hope these words will at least help you look within and see where your innermost thoughts are taking you at the moment. And my hope is that each of you will  rediscover the truth that we are all ONE. In parting I want to wish all of you the very best of everything in all you do, and especially in your own personal search for "Truth". Be good to yourself and even better to those you meet each day.

Possessing the freedom to love sounds easy. But is it really? Let's take a quick look at his possibility. I believe we are all born to express love as we know it. That is not to say that all of us do that. There are way too many folks born into this world and are taught to hate instead of love. Even though love is within us as human beings it can be completely covered up and when this happens it is up to each of us to once again dig deep, way past any limitations others have taught us, and to discover that eternal spark of Divine Love within. Not all will agree with my thinking on this subject but personally I want to discover all the love I can. Keeping in mind that there are many "different" types of love I have long been in the process of defining love as it relates to me. Love is an emotion, I think most would agree with that. And being an emotion it is very hard to define and to understand. When I speak of love I am referring to "Unconditional Love". This is the love that is just that, pure love and nothing else. How many times you heard someone say they could love another if the other person would only do this, or that, or believe or act in a different manner. That kind of love is conditional and it will never last! Unconditional love is eternal as long as it remains just that- Unconditional! Here is the kicker though. If I want to give unconditional love to another person then I must first possess that love. I sure can't give away something I don't possess! So in order to love anyone unconditionally I feel I must first of all clear my mind of all the garbage and negativity I may have allowed to enter my sub consciousness. This is harder than it sounds. At least it is for me! But by doing the necessary mental work I am then able to love in what I feel is the "right" way. I remind you that these thoughts and beliefs are mine only! It may not work for you it may sound silly, it may go against everything you believe. My hope is that any of you, who are trying to attain the state of Unconditional Love, are able to find your own way to achieving this state of mind. For in my world at least, nothing else means much unless you live a life of love. But again that's just me. I will leave all of you with the following quote from Deepak Chopra who stated: "You  have to go past the turbulence of internal dialog to connect with that abundant, affluent, infinite, creative mind." Oh how I agree with that! May I also once again remind you to do something nice for someone today while you still can. I wish all of you folks the very best of everything!

I know I waited longer than I should have today in giving a big salute to all the vets who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice so much for this country of ours. I was never able to serve in the military due to a broken neck I sustained when I was 19 years old. Even if I had not of had that auto wreck that probably should have killed me I probably would not have served any way unless I had gotten drafted. I was still a selfish, ego driven young man at that age, and did not fully comprehend living a life of service. Today, I have lived long enough to better understand things like war and peace, countries and the such. Right now is not the time to talk about all that except to say I sure wish there never had to be another war of any kind. To me war is only an illusion brought about by a lack of positive thoughts. Strictly speaking from the knowledge I have gained I now hold the highest regards and esteem for all of our service men and women who have served in any kind of way to help keep our great country free. A very special thanks to all of you on this day that is set aside to honor all of your service and sacrifices. From the deepest part of my soul I say thank you. "HUGS"

A very special little lady who is so dear to my heart asked me the question: "How do I find happiness?" Well, ever since yesterday when she asked me that I cannot stop thinking about how one might find happiness. I feel fairly secure in my own happiness, which is not to say that I don't have many challenges come into my life as we all do, but at this stage in my life I have finally learned to try my very best to stay in the one eternal moment which is really all any of us have. As long as I can do that I then am able to choose what thoughts I allow to come into actuality. Not that it is always easy to command one's thoughts, no I'd say its really rather hard to focus on "good" or "happy" when it seems like everything in your world is crumbling down. Believe me I've been there a time or two in my life also. It does take effort and a lot of soul searching to allow the illusions of "unhappiness" to just fade away back into the mist of thoughts that once seemed important but no longer serve our purpose. For me this way of living comes from a lifetime of trial and error, times of despair and even feelings of hopelessness but also times of bliss and total contentment. By no means do I claim to have any answers for you that will make you find happiness. I suppose that is what makes the question so hard for anyone else to explain. For example, one person may say they are happy because they have many loved ones but when you see them they seem to always be short on money or material things yet they still radiate a sense of great happiness that seems to gently touch every soul they meet. Then there are those folks who seem to have everything they want and need in abundance. You know the ones I mean. They take exotic trips, buy only the best of things and live in mansions most of us can only dream of. Yet if you asked them if they are happy they may surprise you and tell you they are miserable with life. I have personally seen both of these examples play out in life. Now why is one of them happy and the other one unhappy? Only they can tell you why. And when they do tell you it still may not make any sense at all to you. Therein is the "problem" I have in trying to tell anyone why I am so happy. I will share this much with all of you though and maybe you will get a feel as to how I manage to stay happy, at least most of the time. First of all I have learned foremost what it is that makes me think the way I do. I have come to except that the only important thing to me is other people. I have so richly blessed with having surrounded myself with "good" people who accept me as I am and therefore help me to grow spiritually more ever day. My regular readers have heard me talk about the love of my life Susan Marie before so now I'll just repeat that she is my everything, my soul mate, my best friend, my wife, my lover, my Forever Valentine! That is one very big reason I am happy. I was happy when I first met her many years ago and I'm even happier today. And with her came so many beautiful people into my life. Kids, grandkids, parents, and friends. So I consider myself again as being richly blessed. Sharing a part of my life with other people have kept me sane through all the '"hard" times. I have never had what one would call lots of money or material things but I've always managed to have enough and even a little left over to share with others. So that in a nutshell is why I have been able to get happy and stay happy. Not that that's gonna help you very much in your own search. After thinking about happiness these past 2 days I can only say that in my belief the only way for anyone to find happiness is to find out what it is that makes them feel like they are doing something good for not only themselves but for the world in general. Then I think they should learn to listen to what their heart tells them. This has always worked for me. Go where the heart says go and try to control your ego self so that it doesn't override the heart! The human ego is another subject for a later date I'm sure. But for me especially it was not until I halfway learned to control my ego that I finally begin to be able to really listen to my heart. Don't get me wrong, I still have issues with my ego from time to time. Yes, it still would love to control my thoughts and be in "charge" of my life but I refuse to give in. To sum it all up about the only advice I can give anyone as to happiness is this. Do the very best you can in everything you do and don't be afraid to fail. Risk getting hurt to allow unconditional love to enter your life at some point. Always take the high road if you can in dealing with others. And one of the most important things is to take time for yourself! Learn to get alone with yourself, your inner thoughts, your hopes, your dreams, and your passions. For until you find a way to "heal" yourself from unhappiness, you will not be able to give happiness away to others. No one can do it for you. For me it is still a work in progress and my hope is that today all of you are happy and that you will continue to spread that happiness to everyone you meet. Be good to yourself and even better to those you love. I will now leave all of you with this thought which comes from the book Walking Through Illusion by my friend Betsy Otter Thompson who was thoughtful enough to share her work with me. Betsy states: "Every scenario in which you've forgotten to love is waiting for a miracle!" How true how true. My love I extend to each of you with a warm hug and thoughts for a better world for us all. "HUGS"

Where does one begin when trying to define the most powerful emotion ever there was? My regular readers of this blog know where I stand on love and what it means to me. However, after reading a comment by one of those regulars (Dark Star) I have been thinking a lot about what love means to me. If any of you have read Dark Stars blog you know that he has  quite an interesting way of looking at life in this 3 D world we call home. If you haven't read any of his writings I think you should check it out. Ian is a very deep thinker and one of those rare individuals who has the ability to express himself and his beliefs in ways I can only imagine. There are things he believes that I do not personally accept as my own "truth" but he always gives me food for thought and I am ever so grateful to him for sharing his beliefs and thoughts with others. In one of his comments he asked me if I could explain what love is to him. Therein lies the spur that has gotten me to thinking about just what it is that I ascribe to when it comes to love. Before I begin though I would again remind all of you that just because I say or think something is real, imagined, or anything in between, the words I use and speak are my "Truth" only. That means while it may be true for me it doesn't make it anything for you. You can certainly either agree or disagree with my beliefs and that will not change a thing as I see it. So many things in this 3-D world is only illusion and what I now believe is true may become something entirely different by night's end. The one thing I do try and do is to always keep my mind OPEN to any and all possibilities. Because in my experience whenever I start to think I have all the "answers" to life's questions, that is when the Spirit of Life turns me upside down and shakes the living daylights out of me. Just to say so you think you know it huh! It has happened to me over and over and I assume it will continue to do so until the day I die. Because every day, every moment, I am afforded the possibility of learning something entirely new. I think it was Gibran in his book THE PROPHET who stated the following: "If you think life is done with you and that you have no more learning to do, look in the mirror and if you are still here then it isn't done. I had to paraphrase that statement since I cannot readily find the book. Which by the way is a great book to read if you have not already done so. But now back to the reason for this entry--How do I explain what love is? Well here goes my admittedly lame attempt to explain something that words cannot do justice for. Okay, Love is when I wake up and look into the eyes of my beautiful soul mate Susan Marie! And I sure hope that all of you have that special someone in your life as I do. Cause that makes everything else much easier. I see love when I am walking down the street and see people shaking hands and smiling with each other. I see unconditional love when I see a puppy jumping up and down just because their "owner" has arrived. I see love when a stranger holds a door open for someone. I see love watching grandparents smiling as the kids play on the swingsets. I suppose I can "see" love in almost everything going on around me. But then again, just because I see it does that make it "real" I can't say for sure. When it comes down to it I really don't think any of us can truly define love. Not in words anyway. And as always actions speak more clearly than words. After all is said and done I have arrived at the conclusion that love is whatever I claim it to be! Does that make love real? I dunno for sure but it is good enough for me. There are so many different beliefs and belief systems that I will never say I have it all figured out. The best I can do (at least for now in this stage of my life) is to continue to "see" love everywhere and in everything. And if I by chance I happen to see an event where love seems to be nonexistent hopefully I will be able to bring some love into the circumstance. I'm sure that all of you will have your own way of defining love and that is the way it should be I suppose. But I do hope that each one of you will try your best to share some love with everyone you meet and that together we can help this world be a little more kind and loving to us all. As I end this entry I would again like to ask each of you to do something nice for yourself and also for another. Whether this world is real, Illusion, dreams etc we are all in it together. Personally I like to think that the best any of us can do is to try and become the very best human being we can. As John Lennon once said :"There are no problems, only solutions!" May we all strive to become a part of the solution instead a part of the problem. "HUGS" to all. And in closing I would like to say thank you again Ian(Dark Star) for helping me to look a little deeper into myself.

You gotta believe! That has been the motto of many a person and even pro sports teams over the years. While many of us fail to see that we demonstrate great faith in many things every day we still exhibit faith very often. The biggest problem many of us have is that we "misplace" our faith in things we do not want to see manifest instead of placing our faith in things we do want to see transpire. You don't think you have much faith huh? Hey, most of you will soon get behind the wheel of an automobile and start the ignition. Right? And you don't stop to wonder if the ignition will start(most of the time) and you don't think about all it entails for an auto to crank, no, instead you just have faith that it will start when you turn the ignition on. Likewise, while you are driving down the avenue you place a lot of faith in the other drivers around you, in the traffic signals that they are properly working etc. And when you go to slow down you have faith that the brakes when applied will stop the car. I know this is a simple illustration of faith but faith is faith no matter what label one applies. We use our faith every moment in this life oft times in a negative way. How many times have you heard someone say--Hey, I never win anything- but still you see them buying a raffle ticket. A case of misplaced faith to me. Any way I know faith is a very personal thing to each of us but still I think we should all try and keep our faith on a positive track. Why it seems to be that we can easily believe in something "bad" happening to us, but can't find the same conviction of faith when it comes to believing that something "good" will come our way. Here's hoping that each of you will take a close look at your "inner" beliefs or faith and see if they can be redirected to a positive view. Martin Luther King Jr. once stated this: "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." May you all reach out and begin the ascent to your highest goals and ambitions in a perfect faith in all you do. And please remember that as life rewards you with all good things just take what you need and share the rest with those less fortunate. The very best I wish for you and yours now and forever!

I often have trouble in trying to see any one thing as right or wrong. I have come to find out that there is just way too much of the gray area with things. And thus any thing can be either right, wrong, or somewhere in between. But in this world oft times we feel the need to define our belief about something as either right or wrong, no room in between for anything else. And I do feel this leads us down a narrow road that is awash with all kinds of ruts(challenges, troubles, illness, etc). It is one thing to firmly believe something is true but yet another thing if that belief precludes another's perception of things. I have found this is extremely true when it comes to things of a spiritual nature. As I've stated many times I am not a religious man nor do I claim to have possession of life's answers. But I do try my best to keep an open mind when it comes to things spiritual. Most religious folks would think I am damned to hell after this life because I don't adhere to a particular faith nor do I believe in a Devil, I don't believe in a God who is vengeful, nor one who sits in judgment either for us or against us. But I do believe in a world where we are ALL one and that one day we will again merge back into the Universal Mind or Spirit as I call it. But again, these beliefs are personal to me and I'm sure you have your own beliefs as well. The purpose of this writing is to let you know that when I finally awoke to the fact that I did NOT have to be right all the time, then my life became a whole lot easier. I gladly share my beliefs with anyone who wants to listen but I will not ever feel the need to defend them as I once did. You know what? I may be way, way, off in my beliefs but at least I don't have to try and prove them right. Here's to hoping that you are confident and secure in your personal beliefs, also that you have an open mind so that you can accept others as they are, and a warm fuzzy feeling in knowing that one day all humanity will again recognize their oneness and that we will at long last understand the truth. In the meantime if you can just do a little something nice for another human being then please do it now. This world as I see it needs a lot more kindness so let that kindness begin with you today. I wish you all the very best of everything now and always.

One thing for certain in this uncertain world is that sooner or later we are all gonna get injured by someone  or something. These injuries can range from small time to really big epidemics. And the injuries can be physical, mental, or emotional, or a combination of all of these. No one is immune from them and they will tend to come in bunches. But even though we will all have to deal with injuries of some sort we can overcome them with the right usage of mind and spirit. Have you ever seen a dog who has been cut or scratched up licking their wounds with the tongue? They do this because it is an inherited trait they are born with to help heal any wounds they may receive. But if you continue to watch them they will immediately cease the licking when the wounds start to heal. After that, they go on about their lives with not much concern about the old wounds. But funny as it may sound, we humans sometimes insist on keeping the licking going on long after the wound should have healed. And oft times we even begin to actually like licking them all hours of the day. Of course I don't mean we actually lick our wounds with our tongues the way a dog does, but we do what is inherit in our makeup to aid the wounds to heal. But if we continue to lick(keep talking about them, using them as excuses for one thing or another, feeling sorry for ourselves, blaming others, cursing our "bad luck", or any number of ways to keep the wounds open and sore) then we become like the dog whose wounds never heal because they refuse to stop licking them. And that is when we allow our wounds to continue to harm us in our everyday life in ways we don't ever realize are happening. So today I would hope that each of us will examine all of our open wounds, gently lick them for a short time, and then stop all the licking and allow them to completely heal. That is the only way I know for us to "get over" our injuries and get on with living. My hope is that all of your wounds are light and that they will be quickly healed. I leave you now with a quote from John Lennon(my favorite singer and artist of all time) who once said :"If its dying you want that's okay, but if it's living you want then get on with it." And as always please try to remember to be the very best human being you can be and do something nice for someone today! "HUGS" to all.

Wrong Place, Right Time

You have all heard someone say  I was in the right place at the right time, or I was in the right place but wrong time, or another version of those words I suppose. Well, let me tell you, I feel like I am in the wrong place but the right time. Let me explain. I firmly believe all of us are definitely in the exact place, in the exact time as we are meant to be. But alas, it sure doesn't always feel like it to me. For a really long time now, I have been feeling that somehow I have been mistakenly put into this 3 dimensional world. But within my true soul consciousness I do know I am right where I am meant to be. But still, I fight with the turmoil within that tries to tell me I should be somewhere else doing something else. I have enough conviction in that I believe I will eventually get over those feelings of being "lost" in the wrong place. As I look out upon the world we live in I can envision a place where all of us live in peace and perfect love. It seems so easy to me for us as a human family to wake up and realize just what a beautiful world this could be if we just learned to love each other and stop all the fighting and fussing. Most of the things we fight over are not worth a dime any how. Everything we see and deem as being important to us will one day be gone. Take a look around at things right where you are at this moment. The place you live in, the clothes you wear, all the "trinkets" you prize so much, all the money you use, even your physical body. As you take all these things into account surely you realize that ALL of them will one day no longer exist! The ONLY thing you will take to the grave with you is your soul. All the things we fight so hard for are only here for a short while. The soul is eternal. So you tell me, is selling your soul for some of the "trinkets" of this life worth it? Because, when you do pass on I can guarantee you will be left with only your soul. So my question is now, why do so many of us continue to fight, to cheat, to steal, to kill and to randomly do harm to another. Just to get something we think we need to be happy maybe? Why do we continue to hate another person simply because they are a different color from us. Or just because they don't believe the way we do? Or because we feel they have no right to live where they want to? Or to worship any way they want? I just don't get it. I get frustrated when I see all this nonsense going on. Countries attacking other countries in a false sense of freedom. People trying to make every one else believe the way they do. Why do some of us fail to see that when we hurt another person we are actually hurting ourselves? Why do lots of folks feel there is only ONE way to believe? I sure don't have the answers but I do know a person can choose at any time to start loving everyone unconditionally if they so desire. Why more folks don't see this is beyond me. And thus therein lies my feelings for thinking that maybe I was born into the wrong place at the right time. But as I earlier stated, I know deep down in my soul that I am right where I am suppose to be at this one eternal moment. So I guess I'll just continue to dream of a world where everyone gets along and do the best I can to become a part of the solution instead of the problem. And my hope is that you too, will try your best to become the best human being as you possibly can. Take care my friends, and remember to do something nice for someone today!

Perfection. Don't you just love that word? I hear it used just about every day in some form or another. Someone wants the "perfect" job, the "perfect" relationship, the "perfect" home, and on and on it goes. But I stop to think--is perfection something we can attain in our lives or not? Most of us do strive for the perfection of something but oft times I feel it may be the "wrong" thing we are trying to perfect. It's fine and dandy to want the best of relationships, homes, jobs, etc but as I see it, trying to make every thing perfect just gets in the way. Maybe we should look at perfection in another way. How about believing OK everything is already in its own perfect time and space and all I have to do is accept that and go on from there. Well, I know that may sound strange but that is exactly the way I see it. As a human being I know I am very, very, far from being perfect and I will never be perfect. Hey, just trying to always be perfect would be enough in itself to drive me more crazy than I already am! And I sure don't need that. So I suppose I will continue to keep on trying my best to become the best human being I can, while at the same time knowing perfection is an inexact science. That in turn will free me up to be the person I want to be. I surely know that at times in our lives when things are going screwy and seem to be so messed up, it will be hard to see that perfection is already here within all things spiritual. I'm hoping that all of you beautiful people feel secure in everything going on in your life right now. And when things do get rough( which I guarantee they will at times) I hope you can find the wisdom and courage to keep on keeping on and trying to become the best human being you possibly can! In one way or another I believe we are all looking to find peace, love, and joy in our lives, and to do that I feel we must realize we are all as one in Spirit and that we should do everything possible to be kind and loving to everyone. May I suggest that if you have a free moment to right now do a little something nice for someone else just because you can. You don't have to have money or even have to exert much energy to do something nice for someone. Just a smile at the next person you see, hold open a door for someone, give an old friend a call just to say hi, and on and on it goes. Oh yeah, another thing I've found out in this life is that the more kindness and love you put out there the more you will get in return. I leave all of you wonderful folks with the following quote from Gautama Siddhartha Buddha who once stated : "When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky." Here's hoping all of you will do quite a bit of laughing real soon!

Most all of us have so very much to be thankful for even when we fail to see the blessings while in the midst of some kind of stressful situation. I truly believe for one to be at peace with themselves and with life in general they must show their gratitude. And personally, I feel the best way to show gratitude for our blessings is for us to do something nice for someone else so that they too may see some kindness in their life, which in turn will maybe help them feel better about their situation. There are many ways though that one can show gratitude so do whatever you must to show your appreciation. I leave you with a quote from Meister Eckhart who once stated: "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "Thank you," then that would suffice." May all of your lives be blessed richly now and forever!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise and I'm left wondering if I'm headed in the right way. Man, I sure do hope so! As each day quickly passes into the next it seems as if life is in a great big hurry to take me somewhere, of which destination I'm not sure. Thankfully, I adhere to the philosophy that I am exactly where I am supposed to be at all times. And that includes the times when I feel totally "lost" here in this human form. The question of where you And I and all of us on this planet is going is truly a deep subject with many opinions on the subject. I think it benefits us to take a look at our path from time to time and see where it is we are headed. If we do not take a close look it will be very easy to stumble around from place to place and just keep on spinning our wheels so to speak. One thing for certain though is that I or anyone else can not tell you where you are going. That is entirely up to you and no one has the right to try and make you go in their direction. Hopefully, you can stay centered on where you want to go and stay true to that path. I try to always remember that the destination itself is not what is important. Instead, it is the daily path we walk each moment. The following quote is from the Science of Mind and it states: We exist in Limitless Opportunities, which are forever seeking expression through us. And I will leave you now with another quote, this one from Lao-Tzu who stated:"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are headed." Think about that one for a second! Take care my friends and remember to try and do something nice for someone right now while you have the opportunity!

How often do you immediately judge someone or some event without truly taking the time to really think about it? I don't know why but it seems to me that most human beings are really way to quick to make judgments about others. Seems as if the person immediately places judgment if it does not coincide with their beliefs. And the judgment is usually tinted by their own personal biases. You probably have heard the old adage that says judge not that you be not judged. Well, I can agree with that to a certain extent. If someone tells you they do not judge others then they are either lying or sadly mistaken. All of us make judgments every day. Day in, day out, we are forced to make judgments. I feel the old adage truly means we should not condemn others when we do make a judgment of any kind. We can all not agree every time and we shall all have very different ways of looking at things. this is just human nature and it has always been that way. The problem as I see it, is that when we make a judgment and condemn the other person then that is where we go astray. We should be very careful as to the way we judge others so that we too, can ask for a little understanding and patience from others. I love this quote from Mother Teresa who once stated: "If you judge people, you have no time to love them." That is so true I do believe. Now that doesn't mean we have to agree with the other person all the time and yes, it will be necessary for us to make judgments from time to time.  But if we are a little more understanding, a little more loving, and a little more open minded, I do believe we will find that others are giving us the same in return. And if they fail to do that for us,  then we may decide to just let them be who they are and accept that they are not yet ready to understand the real meaning of "Judge not that you may be judged ". I feel we should accept the fact that all our brothers and sisters in this human form are divinely perfect no matter what the appearance may seem to be. Let us choose to set aside those "hurtful" judgments and instead strive to see the divinity in all people. The Science of Mind Textbook issues us this statement which I think says it all. The quote goes as follows: The Truth is that the Spiritual Man (Woman) is already Perfect, no matter what the appearance may be. My hope is that all of us will quickly see this Truth and that we will begin to live our lives accordingly. Then for the second time in human existence we will have discovered fire. I leave you now with thoughts of perfect love, perfect peace, and perfect harmony. If you can at this moment stop and do something nice for someone else then you will be helping to light that fire that this world needs so badly right now. Please go in peace and try your very best to be a part of life's solutions and not a part of the problem. "HUGS" to all of you beautiful people.

How often do you find yourself so wrapped up in thinking of what you have to do in the future that you completely missed the awesome wonder of the one eternal moment you now are expressing in? If you are like most folks, then I dare say it happens more than you would care to own up to. Seems to me human beings are just kind of built that way. I sure don't believe we are born to do that but as we develop into our own thinking ego self it seems as if we just cannot be satisfied in the moment. We are constantly looking either in the past or toward the future ,  when in reality all we have is the one moment. As I see it, it is entirely ok to plan for the future, or to look back on the past if we think that will help us become a better human being. But just looking back at the past to either condemn ourselves or another human being for something that we done or didn't do is such a waste. We do need to take a look at our past actions so we can learn a lesson from our mistakes, but it serves no purpose to continually berate ourselves for past actions. Just look long enough to learn from it and then move on. As for the future, it is great to make plans and all , but we need to be wary that we do not spend way too much time thinking of the future. Just do the best you can and be willing to change your plans if need be. I know you have heard the old saying that the only thing constant is change and that is very true. No matter what our circumstances in life we all have a golden opportunity to just stop, take a deep breath, and really enjoy the present moment. Just stopping long enough to become aware of all the beauty that surrounds us is golden! In the Holy Bible in Isaiah 43: 18-19 it is written: The Lord said: Forget what happened long ago! Don't think about the past. I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it? I have put roads in deserts, streams in thirsty lands. Yep, God in man(woman) as Man(women) is man(woman). Personally I don't care what religion you favor if any one at all. Your personal beliefs about God or lack thereof really doesn't make any difference as I see it. Whatever your beliefs I think you and all of us are witnessing every moment the wonder and the amazement of Spirit at work, working through us to accomplish all the great things we do. If you refuse to let go of any past hurt, slight, or abuse, etc , then you will definitely be hurting yourself even more. I hope you can see the point I wish to make. And that is that we are all One and all things important are happening right now, right here, in this one eternal moment. May you never limit your life by any experience that has happened in the past or by being fearful of what may happen in the future. Instead, may I suggest that you begin living in the moment, and trying to make the most of every experience. And may I also suggest that I believe that if you take this very moment and do something nice for someone else, that you will soon find it is also helping you find the inner peace and contentment you are now seeking. I leave all of you with my hopes that you and yours are enjoying the moment and find yourselves immersed in love for all.

Today I would like to ask all you fine folks out there to send some healing thoughts to all the people here in the Midwestern part of the United States who have been dealing with tornados and severe storms the past few weeks. Oklahoma in particular has been devastated by them. Entire towns wiped out, good people dead, injured, and left homeless, and still the storms rage on. Here where I live, in the western part of the state of Kentucky we are also considered to be in the "tornado alley" of the Midwest. For some reason the storms usually hit all around the city I live in but so far have not touched down within the city limits. But several small communities that surround Paducah are hit with storms that cause much damage and take lives every year. Mother Nature seems to have run amok in the past few years down here. One year it was flooding(again this year also) the next it was an ice storm that left us without power for weeks. Then it was a drought one year that caused much concern and hardship. I am used to seeing severe thunderstorms here every year and it still amazes the wrath that Mother Nature hits us with. This planet is showing just how merciless it is when it comes to the weather patterns. I'm pretty sure the planet will continue on its wings of change and that one day the planet itself may be wiped out and become a rogue planet. Only time will tell. But at this moment in time there are oh so many folks around the world who are facing the "hard" times of severe weather. And even though our technology has come so far, we are still, at times, helpless to do much of anything. So today, if you will, how about just sending some positive healing vibrations out to all of the folks who are facing the wrath of Nature. We are "ONE" and when one of us is hurting, then all of us are hurting in some way. Thanks for your time and may I just add that since all of us don't really know for sure when we are gonna leave this place and make our transition elsewhere, let us all reach out right now and do something nice for someone while we still have the opportunity! I wish for you and yours the very best of everything.

How would you describe yourself when it comes to regarding your beliefs and traditions? Would you say you are adamant in your beliefs? Or maybe even rigid in them? Or maybe you consider yourself flexible when it comes right down to it? I believe most of us are just so set in our beliefs and ways of living that we oft times argue our point of view in trying to get others to think and act as we do. Don't get me wrong, I do feel that one should be firm in their beliefs, but not so firm that they are not willing to alter or completely change the beliefs if more truth comes into their range of perception. I personally know folks who are so inflexible in their ways that they will not even listen to another's possibilities about how things really are. And I feel that is the reason so many folks are not really satisfied with their beliefs and ways of doing things. They just keep on believing the "old' things they have accepted as truth and if anyone does question them about it they just get a little self righteous and even indignant at times. I feel that all of us as human beings should keep an open mind about everything we allow to enter our sphere of thinking. You and I may not agree on everything but that still doesn't mean one of us is right and the other is wrong. All it really means is that we each perceive the same thing in a different light. But if one will be flexible enough to just consider that what we purpose as our truth isn't necessarily the same truth that another needs. My hope is that all of you are able to keep an open mind about everything that you believe, everything that you have read, heard, or seen, and that you are willing to change if the time comes when you feel it is the right thing to do. I know in my own personal experiences of this life that the greatest freedom I ever gained was when I realized I did not have to be "right". There is no right or wrong, only our perceptions of it is truly real. I will leave you with a quote from Lao-Tzu who once stated the following: "Men(women, children) are born soft and supple; Dead they are stiff and hard. Plants are born tender and pliant; dead, they are brittle and dry. Thus, whoever is stiff and inflexible is a disciple of death. Whoever is soft and yielding is a disciple of life. The hard and stiff will be broken. The soft and supple will prevail." As I bid you a fond farewell may I once again remind you to try and do something nice for someone today. Become a part of life's solutions and walk with your head held high and your heart full of unconditional love for all. Also remember to be good to yourself and even better to those around you. "HUGS" to all of you amazing folks that I share this planet with. I wish for you and yours the very best of everything!

I have often been amazed by how often I have witnessed both myself and others being stabbed in the back by ones whom we have been nothing  but good to. And more times than not they choose to do this over some kind of monetary award. Nothing much surprises me any more as to what some folks will do to others for money. I still  think it is such a shame that one will choose money over the option of being nice to someone, especially those that they know. If you don't believe me I would suggest you tune in to last week's episode of "Survivor" the reality show on CBS network. In that episode I watched as Brenda chose to give up her individual reward so the rest of the "tribe" would instead get the reward. A very nice thing to do for someone else I must say. And then immediately after she did the honorable thing for the others 3 of them decided to "blindside" her and get her voted off the show. Now, I do realize this is a "game" and 1 million dollars is at stake for the winner, so you may say she was just dumb to give the reward up. But on a deeper level I watched her crying after she was voted out and she had a very legitimate reason for being upset. The ones she went out of her way to be nice to had stuck a dagger in her back and she was very hurt. The sad  thing though is that I've either been treated that way over a lot less than 1 million dollars and I've seen others back stabbed by so called friends for a few dollars. It's a sad state of events when people take advantage of others for any reason but to me it is especially sad when it happens over money. I try not to become too jaded as I realize there are a lot more honest caring people in the world than there are those who are"backstabbers", but it is very disheartening when I see things like that happen to good people. Thankfully I've been able to rise above all the times I've been used and abused and my hope is that you are able to do the same if and when something like that happens to yourself. And believe me, if you are a kind, caring, and giving person the chances are you will be taken advantage of a time or two. But hang in there and remember that it will only be an opportunity for you to grow into an even more caring person. As a matter of fact I have come to the realization that those who have used me in any way are the losers, and not me! As long as one can forgive others for their heartless acts then in my opinion they are truly the "winners". If you can today,  try and forgive anyone who has done you wrong and reach out and do a little something nice for someone just because you want to. And if you do that , I do believe that it will make your day a lot brighter also. Hey, I love all you folks, even those who haven't treated me exactly nice! So take care my friends and to all the beautiful mothers out there I want to wish you the best Mother's Day ever! Me, being a guy, I will not ever fully comprehend the unconditional love a mother has for her kids and all the sacrifices they make for them.  But I dare say that has to be the "Hardest" job in the world--being a good mom- so to all of you I can only say Bless your hearts! And those of you reading this who have a mother who is still alive please go out of your way to do something extraordinary for your mom this sunday! And remember, she is the only mother you will ever have! And to my dearly departed mom who passed away the day after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 2001 I want you to know that you were always the best mom ever! I can't say for sure what happens to any of us when we make our transition from human back to spirit but I do believe my mom is listening from within my own heart. God bless you mom You are the best! To all of you folks I sincerely wish you and yours the very best of everything  now and forever! "HUGS"

How am I doing you may ask. Well, I'm not too unwell thank you. Lately I've been giving much thought to just what is it I'm trying to accomplish here on earth. And guess what, I'm still not sure. Even after all these years of living I still question as to whether I'm in the "right" world or not. Believe me, I have some strong doubts that I'm where I wanted to be at this stage in my life. Please allow me to try and explain just how I am feeling at this particular point in my existence. And as I do at times I am going to use some of my favorite music as a reference point. I will start with a verse from the old Kenny Rogers and the First Edition song titled What Condition My Condition Was In. I quote:  "I woke up this morning with the sundown shining in, I found my mind in a brown paper bag but then I jumped on a cloud and fell eight miles high I tore my mind on a jagged sky I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in." That's kinda the way I've been feeling here lately . Kinda confused if you know what I mean. When I saw on TV the bombings at the Boston Marathon I was really upset. Here we go again I thought--ignorant people killing innocent men ,women, and children because of some misguided beliefs. Terrorism at its finest! Now please, can anyone tell me why any human can believe it is appropriate to blow up, shoot, maim, or destroy another innocent human being? And especially in the name of a God or holy deity who would want one to kill innocents. If by the slightest chance that is even close to being true then I am sure I am not in the right world for me. Way too violence and blood shed for my taste. The way some of us treat each other is just a downright dirty shame! I've been abused, lied to, taken advantage of, and then used some more by several folks in my life who did those things mostly for money or some other selfish purpose. Like the following verse from The Grateful Dead song called "Trucking" which goes like this: "Set up like a bowling pin, knocked down it gets to wearing thin, they just won't let you be...." I feel that also. I still try and treat everyone as nice as I can but still there are those who still just want to use me for their own selfish purposes. Even here on this blog as I try to encourage others to think for themselves and to share their innate goodness with others, I have to daily fight the "spammers" who try to use the blog to make more money for themselves. They could care less as to the content of the blog, they can only see dollar signs in their mirror. To them I am only a "mark" for them to use in their search for money. How sad-these people are just so misguided in their lives. I could go on and on as to the perception I see from this world but I see no use in doing so. Either you get it or you don't. I believe all human beings are born somewhat selfish but one must learn top overcome that and instead learn to share instead of just take, take, and take! I have been taken advantage of by folks who go to church every sunday, those who put on a good show for everyone, always talking about loving your neighbor, treating others right, etc and then on Monday sell me something without revealing the problems I would be faced with later. And then just tell a bunch of lies on Tuesday and every day since. And they never own up to the fact that they really did defraud me in any way. Then they go back to church the next sunday and everything is righteous again? I don't think so but then again who am I to say what's right?  I may not go to church but at least I don't try to be someone I'm not. Why do people think money is the only thing they need? Or to wield power over the masses? But that seems to be the way of this world so yes, I am once again beginning to think I am in the wrong place. This little rant of mine will maybe help me to get back on track, I don't know. But one thing I do know is this, Again borrowing a verse form Jerry Garcia's band who says: "Going home, back to where I belong, sit down patch my bones and get back on truckin almost home". Yes, I am almost home I can start to see the finish line and I'm sure my remaining years on earth will fly by as usual. And while I'm awaiting my so called "death" or what I instead like to label , my "rebirth" maybe next world will be the one I'm looking for. A world where everybody realizes we are all one. Or as Lionel Ritche once sang: If I was at a place where dreams were for dreamers, and all you wished came true. I'd wish the world had all happy people and then there'd be no more wishing to do. "I want to thank all you wonderful people for allowing me a moment to just vent some of my frustrations. I do love all of you and wish for you and yours the very best of everything. And please , if you will, try and do a little something nice for someone from your heart to theirs. "HUGS" to all.

And you think that you have no way to be a part of this life's solutions?Well, let me say this;I sincerely believe that all of us have our own unique way of adding to the betterment of all humankind.Most of you, like myself will never be rich or famous. Nor will we be the inventor of the next "big" thing that will make life easier for the rest of us.But we will all have a chance many times a day to make life better  not only for ourselves but others to boot.Please allow me to share with you how my day  went the other day.After getting up and having coffee I went to the kitchen and washed up the breakfast dishes that my wife had to leave because she had an early appointment.That was my first chance to do something nice for someone.Later, I went out to run a couple of errands. When I was getting to the door of the post office I saw an elderly fellow getting out of his car.So instead of rushing in and taking care of my business I decided to stand there in the cold wind and wait til he got to the door so I could hold it open for him. He gave me a warm smile and said thank you so much. Now I wasnt doing it to get a thank you but I admit it was nice to hear him say thanks.Later I was sitting in traffic waiting for the light to change and noticed there was a car trying to turn in my lane from a sidestreet. Since the road was filled with traffic behind me and not knowing how long it would take for him to get out I stopped and waved him to come on over and get in front of me. Again I was greeted with a broad smile and a lip snyced thank you.When I arrived home my beautiful wife was there and the first thing I told her was just how damned beautiful she was.Later that evening I thought of all the opportunities that life gives us to do a little something nice for someone even tho we may never see them again. I believe it should go without saying that we all need to be really nice to those we love as well as those we meet everyday as we go about our everyday living.I'm not writing this so you will say something nice about me but rather I am trying to get you to see that no matter your station or circumstances, you can choose to be a part of life's solutions instead of becoming part of the "problem" Today, while you are here how about just doing something nice for someone just because you can.If you make this a part of your daily routine I can assure you that not only will you have more friends but you will see life repaying you in so many wonderful ways.Dont do just to get a reward, do it because your heart says so.I leave all of you wonderful folks with peace, love , and joy."HUGS" to all.

Most would agree I think that there is still lots of work for us human beings to do if we are to become truly enlightened.I firmly believe all of us are given ample opportunity to take what we have learned and to share it with others who are looking to find spiritual enlightenment. I will paraphrase a quote from Thomas Troward who has stated that the Creative process brings us the materials and conditions for the work to our hands; then we must make use of them with diligence and common sense.This Creative process will provide us the food, but it will not cook the dinner.I leave all of you in peace and love

I look out upon an ocean so wide and I see the waters that are colored green.You look upon the same ocean and see the waters colored blue.Are you right and me wrong? Or am I right and you wrong?What if I told you we were both right?Would you agree or say I must be disillusional?  It really doesn't make any difference as far as I can tell, but it does show just how often we can see things in an entirely different light than another one would.Such it goes in this  3 dimensional world we find ourselves in.No wonder we find ourselves feeling seperated from each other, I mean after all if we can't agree on the color of the ocean what can we agree on?One thing I do believe tho is that each of us have the innate divine spark of all consciousness within our souls and if we but take the time and effort to learn how to use this info we can attain complete peace among all people everywhere.Just think, a world where we all feel as one, that we belong with everybody, a world where there is no need for greed, wars, fighting for things as if we are afraid we will wind up with nothing.How sad, when in reality everything there is is already ours if we but claim it from Divine Mind.I wish to share this quote with you that is from Joel Goldsmith:"Contemplation lifts our consciousness into an atmosphere of receptivity, into a consciousness where miracles can take place." And from the Science of Mind comes this nugget of wisdom: The person who can throw himself(herself) with a complete abandon into that Limitless Sea of Receptivity, having cut loose from all apparant moorings, is the one who will always receive the greatest reward. I would hope that you think about those 2 quotes until you can attain all the wisdom that lies within them.Remember that the thing you wish to see has already been made manifest in Divine Mind and all you need do is reach out and claim it for yourself.The mind is such a miracle made manifest and it saddens me to see so many of us fail to grasp the power we have. My hope is that each of you reach out and take back your power. And afterwards I would hope that you will remember to do something nice for someone and thus become part of the solution and not a part of the problem.Bless all of you beautiful people.I leave you now in perfect peace ,perfect love, and perfect Oneness.

Well, it's been a while since I've written anything on here. Like everyone else there are times I will go through another learning experience that makes me take a long hard look at myself Not that I consciously chose to go through this period where I felt depression,sadness, and even anger! I must admit there are times when I truly do feel like I have wound up in the wrong world.I see all the stupidity, the hate, the prejudice, the wars, the crimes against each other and I just wanna get the hell outta here.Back to the "real" world where I belong.But as always, I come back to my senses and realize I am exactly at the place where I'm supposed to be. It ain't easy, it ain't pretty at times but I am here!Maybe some day this world will turn out to be the one I can only envision right now. But I refuse to give up on my dreams. So once again after losing my mind I did manage to find a piece of it once again.I would love to share the following nugget of truth stated by Nona L. Brooks--"Right thinking restores us in consciousness to our normal state----perfection, although we seem to have been straying far from it." And also from the Science of Mind comes this statement---The native state of man(all people) is one of purity, peace, and perfection. I leave you now with thoughts of perfect peace, perfect love, and perfect oneness!

I am getting pissed off by the spammers who take a good thing and try to use it for their own  selfish reasons! Ive been going back almost everyday and deleting the spam comments. Today I found one that blogger will not allow me to delete so I guess the spammers have found a way to block that also. I realize I can set up the account so that all comments have to be approved by me but I really hate to do that.When I have to fill in the words and nos to leave a comment on someone elses blog I usually have to make at least 2 or 3 attempts because the words are so screwy.You know what? I am gonna just think about quitting the blog all together.As much as I try to keep my mind attuned to the "oneness" of all of us I am beginning to just get filled up with all the greed and selfishness that seems to abound. I know the frigging spammers dont give a damn if I end my blog or not. They will just go to another persons blog and drive them crazy.Guess Im just tired of all the B/S going on worldwide.Who knows maybe tomorrow Ill wake up with a better frame of mind and just continue to delete the spams.Looks like blogspot could do a better job of curtailing the spam.Even tho I report all of them I can it seems to do no good.Maybe Im just venting I really dont know but I do know I am just getting so tired waking up every day and seeing all the greed that is going on.If I do decide to end the blog any of you sincere folks who follow the blog are more than welcome to write me at my email yahoo account(yep, its been spammed too) because I have much love in my heart for all of you friends I have made over the years.Take care everyone and Ill try to improve my attitude!

Just how highly would you rate yourself as a human being? Now not being one myself who puts a lot of stock in ratings or labels we may use to describe our lives I am still aware that way too many people still consider themselves as "little". We have Kings and Queens, rock stars, movie stars, rich inventors,technology giants in different fields and oft imes we may list those folks as being bigger or better than us because we havent done anything on a dramatic scale. We are as it is, relatively unknowns, and we wonder why am I here on the lower end of the totem pole while these others are way beyond our own imagination? Only you can answer that question for yourself.As for me I consider myself as a peer to everyone.I've never reached stardom in any way, I am, if one must insist on labels, an unknown.But that is quite alright with me. Those others I speak of, the famous and rich ones are no better or no worse than any of us.Just think of the mightiest speck of mankind,I speak of the atom, and see waht it can do despite its teeny appearance.Look at the largest ocean in the world, it started with a single drop of water.The mightiest river, yep it started out as a small stream that would not let anything cease its flow, the highest skyscraper, it was once only a pile of steel and rivets.I could go on and on with examples but Im sure you see what I am getting at.There is no such thing in this world as "big" or small", its all only an illusion brought about by an unenlightened mind. The thing I want you to realize is that you are SOMEBODY, an important somebody at that. No one is better than you we are only peers living together on this tiny orb we call home.So you may not be able to invent the next big thing that changes life for the better, you may not become the next great actor or actress that entertains millions, but that doesnt mean you cant do just as much for the betterment of humankind in oh so many ways.Pleasse, right now gi ve yourself a pat on the back,look into the mirror and see the reflection of all of us looking back at you with a big smile.Then after the realization that yes, I do count for something worthwhile, go out and do something nice for someone.Never forget you are special.There is no one who can accomplish the same things you do.Become part of life's solutions right now.Stand tall, be proud, and be love cause that is really all you are
