I want to share with you a quote from Helen Shueman. I think it says it all with no explanation needed.

"When you meet anyone, remember, it is a holy encounter. As you see him(her) you will see yourself. As you treat him(her) you will treat yourself. As you think of him(her) you will think of yourself. Never forget this for in him(her) you will find yourself or lose yourself."

I wish for all of you a moment of clear understanding, a moment of pure love, pure kindness, pure joy, pure peace and contentment. And as always may I remind you to try and do something nice for someone right now simply because you want to and are able to do so. Peace and love to all!

Hi folks. As you well know the only constant on this planet is change. Like it or not change will come. In every direction. And lots of times it comes without much warning whether we are ready or not. Personally, I am a man who doesn't really like too much change, especially when it comes to me having to get out of my "comfort zone."  I like waking up in the same place each morning and going along with my routine. But even so, I realize that change does come and I will just have to keep adapting, like it or not! Some change we consider good, some bad, and some indifferent. And with change comes a lesson for us. I hope the changes you face today are ones you are happy to make. Those you don't feel you are ready to face but have to anyway, I wish you the very best in accepting them. I ran across the following quote somewhere(not sure where) and jotted it down on a piece of paper. Now I'd like to share it with all of you.

If you realize things change, there is nothing you will try to hold onto. If you aren't afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve. Trying to control the future is like trying to take the Master Carpenter's place. When you handle the Master Carpenter's tools, chances are you will cut your hand.

Like it or not my friends, we will all have to just accept change as we grow in this 3D world of ours. I leave you now with thoughts of pure love, peace, joy, and enlightenment. And please remember to try and do something nice for one of your fellow traveler's on this path of discovery we call life!

Are any of us in this 3D world really free? I suppose that could only be answered depending on one's definition of freedom. And I'm sure there are many different definitions out there. I sincerely hope you consider yourself to be free and that you are content on whatever path you are now following. I would like to share another quote from the Tao te Ching for I feel it says a lot  about what being free truly means. The quote says:
The Master does his job then stops.
He understands that the universe is forever out of control,
and that trying to dominate events goes against the current of the Tao
Because he believes in himself, he doesn't try to convince others.
Because he is content with himself, he doesn't need others' approval
Because he accepts himself, the whole world accepts him.

I feel we are all Masters of our life if we but take the time and effort to honestly explore who we really are. The only one who can give you freedom is yourself! I hope you are already there this moment! I take leave of you good folks with a gentle reminder to be good to yourself and even better to others around you. A better world awaits your recognition..may the doors be flung widely open now and forever! Peace, love, and understanding to all of you, my dear friends. "HUGS"

Today I would like to share with you a quote from the Tao te Ching. Some of you who may not be familiar with the teachings of the Tao may find this to be a contradictory work. If you are one of these folks just think deeply on what it says and just see if it doesn't ring true to you at some level. If at first you can't "see" the "truth" within please don't feel anything, just allow the words to flow into your heart and give it a few days to hit home with you. And if by chance you don't ever "get it" that is quite ok too! There is no right or wrong, there is nothing in reality except this One Eternal Moment. The quote is as follows.
The tao that can be told is not the eternal tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.

The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.

Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.

Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
Their source is called darkness.

Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.

I now leave all of you beautiful people with thoughts of love, peace, joy, and oneness. May your path be one of few thorns and one of much learning. As always, if you choose, please try and do something nice not only for yourself, but for another as well! "Hugs" to all.

 Since knowledge is the main key one needs to live a full life I feel each of us should do the best we can to seek out what is "real" and what is "illusion". That is if anything at all really exists. Years ago I started writing a novella called Illusions & Paradoxes. I originally intended to self publish the book but I never got around to doing anything with it. Recently I came across this old manuscript and I will now from time to time use some of it on this blog. While I am discussing "illusions" and "realities" I remind you that everything I say is only My truth. It may apply to you and then again it may seem like rubbish to you. It doesn't matter either way. An example of one of "my" illusions follows as such: One woman looks out upon the vast ocean and sees a sea of blue, another man looks upon the same ocean and sees a sea of green, a colorblind young lass looks out to the same ocean and sees a sea of gray, and yet a blind boy looks out to the same ocean and sees a sea of nothing. Yet what the blind boy sees is the only "truth" out there. For color is only a refraction of light beams. Yet, each one of these people will be experiencing their "own truth". And who am I to say otherwise? About the best we can do is to enjoy each of our personal illusions with gusto and with love directed to all. Really, what does it matter what color we call the sea? And what difference does it make the color of our skin? Why do we reject another's truth and at the same time try so very hard to get our truth excepted? Why indeed! I truly believe one cannot be "free" until the biases and prejudices against one's brother and sister have been lifted and borne away by the warm breezes of life. I leave you now with this thought from the Teaching of Don Juan who said: "Power rests"  on the knowledge  that one holds. What is the sense of knowing things that are useless? they will not prepare us for our unavoidable encounter with the unknown.' He also stated"Nothing in this world is a gift. Whatever has to be learned must be learned the hard way." So may I leave you with this thought, today become aware that no matter one's illusions in truth we remain still and realize that all life is "ONE". And realizing this take a moment right now to call an old friend, make amends with an old enemy, reach out to one in need, or just do someone  a bit of kindness that may "save" their day from the illusion of separation. We just have to learn that we cannot go on hurting others simply because we can't "understand" their illusions as being real. Like the old song from the Bellamy Brothers says--Let your love flow like a mountain stream and let your love grow with a small list of dreams and let your love show and you'll know what I mean it's the season...........To all of you beautiful folks I leave you in love, peace, and joy today and forever!
