When you realize where you come from, no imagination can move you to believe that you are separate. Everything is seen for what it is, and you understand that no one is in danger of losing anything but his identification. And in that forever good news, in the face of everything that appears to be real, only kindness remains. It's nothing that can be taught. It's an experience; it's self-delight. When I give to you without motive, I am delighted. I act with kindness because I like myself when I do that. The kindness can only be to myself. It doesn't include anyone else, not even the apparent receiver. I am both giver and receiver, and that's all that matters.
The whole world belongs to me, because I live in the last story, the last dream: woman sitting in chair with cup of tea. I look out the window, and whatever I see is my world. There's nothing beyond that, not one thought. This world is enough for me. Anything I ever need to do or be is in this unlimited space. It's enough to accomplish my purpose, and my purpose is to sit here now and sip my tea. I can imagine a world outside what I can see, and as it happens I prefer this one. It is always more beautiful here, wherever I am, than any story of a future or a past. The here and now is where I can make a difference. It's what I live out of. Nothing more is required.
Hi, Sandy: I finally decided to spend more time here rather than Sodahead. I invited BenTwig (Ben Tatrow) here and he is here. Will you please friend him soon? Thanks, Sandy. Still out here trying to affect change and peace. With thoughts, Jane
Hi Sandy... thanks for your message about the Burger thing.... I just saw this as well today and regret that it happened.. I banned the member... that's about the best I can do... it's hard to control this type of abuse of the community... in fact this is the first time it has happened...
I have not been here often enough and am gonna correct that now. Sandy, I have not seen you at SodaHead much. Did you quit? I am much more selective now and do not spend as much time there. It is so discouraging to not be able to reach folks. Right now, I am considering entering Americorps if I can afford to pay my bills (just a few) and do this. I would do the Peace Corps, but I can't leave my grandbabies. Peace
