  • 10/09/16--22:04: Beauty by Sunset: 101016

  • Looking at a sunset, just for a second you forget your separateness: you are the sunset. That is the moment when you feel the beauty of it. But the moment you say that it is a beautiful sunset, you are no longer feeling it; you have come back to your separate, enclosed entity of the ego. Now the mind is speaking. And this is one of the mysteries, that the mind can speak, and knows nothing; and the heart knows everything, and cannot speak. Perhaps to know too much makes it difficult to speak; the mind knows so little, it is possible for it to speak.

    John Lennon
    October 9, 1940 - December 8, 1980


    Yesterday was John Lennon's birthday
    Since I don't post on Sundays
    I wanted to honor this great man today.
    Why do I think he was a great man?
    Because he used his talents and his celebrity
    To help make the world a better place to live
    In that regard
    We can all be great

    To honor John
    I invite you to read the lyrics to his song
    And imagine them as reality

    IMAGINE
    (Lyrics)

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today... Aha-ah...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    ~*~

    Happy Birthday, John
    You are loved and admired
    For the world you imagined and promoted


    John Lennon
    "Imagine"

  • Compassion by John Pitre

    Thanks to our Friend for sending us this quote

    ~*~
                    
    "I believe that man’s noblest endowment is his capacity to change. Armed with reason, he can see two sides and choose: He can be divinely wrong. I believe in man’s right to be wrong. Out of this right he has built, laboriously and lovingly, something we reverently call democracy. He has done it the hard way and continues to do it the hard way — by reason, by choosing, by error and rectification, by the difficult, slow method in which the dignity of A is acknowledged by B, without impairing the dignity of C. Man cannot have dignity without loving the dignity of his fellow.

    I believe in the potential of people. I cannot rest passively with those who give up in the name of “human nature.” Human nature is only animal nature if it is obliged to remain static. Without growth, without metamorphosis, there is no godhead. If we believe that man can never achieve a society without wars, then we are condemned to wars forever. This is the easy way. But the laborious, loving way, the way of dignity and divinity, presupposes a belief in people and in their capacity to change, grow, communicate, and love...

    We must encourage thought, free and creative. We must respect privacy. We must observe taste by not exploiting our sorrows, successes, or passions. We must learn to know ourselves better through art. We must rely more on the unconscious, inspirational side of man. We must not enslave ourselves to dogma. We must believe in the attainability of good. We must believe, without fear, in people."

  • 10/09/16--22:07: Hey Sweetie! 101016

  • Hey Sweetie,

    Happy Monday!

    I hope you had a nice weekend
    Mine was good and quiet
    My Hogs lost the game
    It was expected
    I was proud that we never gave up
    Even when we knew we were not going to win
    We kept fighting
    I'm not sure about next week's game
    It will be one of the tougher teams we play this season
    After them our chances improve against the other teams
    Our offensive front line has got to improve
    If we are going to have a chance

    I wish you a beautiful day

    Peace and Love,
    AOM

    ~*~

    Forget about enlightenment.
    Sit down wherever you are
    and listen to the wind that is singing in your veins.
    Feel the love, the longing, and the fear in your bones.
    Open your heart to who you are, right now,
    not who you would like to be.
    Not the saint you’re striving to become.
    But the being right here before you,
    inside you,
    around you.
    All of you is holy.
    You’re already more and less than whatever you can know.
    Breathe out, look in, let go.

    ~John Welwood

    It is important to cultivate compassion for our own humanity.
    When our hearts open to our own suffering,
    we begin to also be more accepting of others
    and to realize that they too have the same struggles.

    ~Rabbi Jeff Roth

    ~*~

    This moment is not life waiting to happen,
    goals waiting to be achieved, words waiting to be spoken,
    connections waiting to be made, regrets waiting to evaporate,
    aliveness waiting to be felt, enlightenment waiting to be gained.
    No.
    Nothing is waiting.
    This is it.
    This moment is life.

    ~Jeff Foster

    If I could ask for any gift in the world for myself, it would be peace. If I could ask for any gift for everyone else in the world, it would be peace.

    Peace of mind, peace of heart, peace in relationships, peace in every land.  If everyone in the world felt at peace with themselves, how much crime would we have?  How much anger and frustration and violence?  So many of the bad things in the world, even down to the person who makes fun of you or someone you know, are caused by a lack of peace, and it's hard to imagine what the world would be like if everyone felt peace.

    I know that my perspective of the world has changed drastically since I've actually focused on making peace one of my highest priorities in my life.  I do my best to find small pockets of peace, and I do my best not to let situations or people take my peace away from me--if someone angers me, he or she has robbed me of the feeling of peacefulness that I strive to maintain in my life.

    I can't do it always--I've never expected to, and I never expect to. I'm human, and I'm going to let my peace of mind slip away from time to time.  I'm going to worry about things like money and jobs and what's wrong with my car.  I'm going to feel inferior to some people, I'm going to feel that I don't belong in certain situations, I'm going to beat myself up over something stupid that I'm going to say tomorrow or next week or next month.  As I get better at maintaining peace, though, I'm not going to let things like that take my peace away. And I'm going to feel better because of it, and I'm going to be more effective at making others feel better, too.

    One of the things that I always try to ask myself before I respond in situations in which I'm bound to overreact or react inappropriately is this:  Will my reaction contribute to the peace in the world, or will it contribute to the discontent and anger in the world?  Sometimes the answer makes me stop and not say what I meant to, and I always find that later, I'm much more at peace for not having said or done that something than I would have been had i said it or done it.

    Do you want to give a gift to the world?  Contribute to the peace in the world, and help others feel one of the most important feelings they'll ever feel.  And don't forget to give it to yourself, too--you deserve it.  Peace be with you.

    Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see.  The question is whether or not we are in touch with it.  We don't have to travel far away to enjoy the blue sky.  We don't have to leave our city or even our neighborhood to enjoy the eyes of a beautiful child.  Even the air we breathe can be a source of joy.
                     
    ~Thich Nhat Hanh
