funny how something most of us consider mundane, like scars......can be so deep(no pun intended)and have so many different meanings. The short post that was put up on the main page...reminded me not only of physical scars, but emotional ones as well.
Most of us have inner scars, private hurts that have somehow never healed, either because we nurse them so they dont or wont......or because we dont know how to help ourselves, heal ourselves....and so there they are.....and they are… Continue

"There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with."

is heaven returning
Being in the arms of
The kiss of life
Finding our way back
into the current
Discovering the keys
within the Earth
Deep within our soul

Wow! Fear of not having enough, no matter how much we have, leads to greed!
We all should have the courage of that old soul disquised in a girl's body! It is time to act! Goethe reminds us:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Thank you, Thank you, thank you, gracias, gracias, gracias

These songs came to me as I sat enjoying nature in one of my favorite spots.
Melody of Life
The melody of life has its own rhythm.
Listen for it and you’ll hear.
All the myriad parts will soon fit together
And an arrangement will appear.
At first it will seem to be quite random,
With nothing to connect it all,
But suddenly it comes together
And you hear it all in harmony.
I give thanks for my awareness of this
Portion of… Continue

I have come to believe that everything unfolds in perfect divine order, that everything that happens is a lesson here in Earth School, and that what actually happens to us is not as important as how we deal with it. This is quite a different philosophy than the one I used to live by, and it was severely challenged five years ago when my house was infested with ticks.
Brown dog ticks are the only ticks that have been known to take over a human habitat. Being a researcher, I learned… Continue

I was merrily minding my own business on facebook, and saw a video of Santana. I liked what I saw, and proceeded to visit his blog. Low and behold, there was the mantra that I had just told everyone was my new one. One of the motto's of AOAND is LOVE IS THE ANSWER, which I had adopted as my new mantra. I took it as a sign and joined this group. I am an advocate for peace. I am a member of the Baha'i Faith, and we do not like war. We believe that God is one, and that humanity is one. I dearly do… Continue

Maybe I can tell a little bit about my recovery and what happened. It is a long long story so guess I better condense it down. Living 80 years has been a journey for sure, believe I started out like everybody else, born in Minnesota and had a fairly loving family, had no idea how loving until it has disappeared from my life. That is the beginning of my story. Had friends, and also was able to follow a little of my dreams, spent a lot of time with my grandparents which was great and this is… Continue

I am one with my group brothers and all that I have is theirs.
May the love that is in my soul pour forth to them.
May the strength that is in me lift and aid them.
May the thoughts which my soul creates reach and encourage them.

My husband Ray was alcoholic. Most of the time during our 13 years together he was recovering, but there were a few memorable relapses. Then there were the couple of years my son John lived with us. He was not only alcoholic, but also manic/depressive, paranoid schiz, bi-polar, mentally ill. As a youngster, he was always incredibly intelligent and musically gifted. I miss that being very much. At this stage of the game he’s practically unrecognizable as the little boy I knew and loved. It seems… Continue

“Dare You To Move”
Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everybody’s watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to run
Like today never happened
Today never happened… Continue

There is an inner sequence of events. That is, there is an inner
order to your existence that is immeasurably rich and varied, and
because of this you have free will. You have indeed a multitudinous
variety of events to choose from as you make up the script of your
"So from your beliefs and ideas and with the mental and psychic
energy at your disposal, you ATTRACT certain events into becoming,… Continue

The Fire from With-in!
Posted by Kurt H. Hoyer
Is your Fire burning bright and is it strong? Does it shine from behind your eyes? Are you feeding your fire w/ mediation, listening to that thunder of Silence, practicing the presence and chilling from daily worries and troubles?
All things come from with-in! You do not need to travel the world in search of yourself. But being still and quiet is not easy, for the mind constantly chatters.… Continue

I spent the whole entire day on Friday----- doing absolutely nothing.
I think there were some energy vampires in full gear at work this week.
And, I also had to deal with the Bailey Situation at home.
He's an energy sucker---
And, he's an energy giver.
Even when he's sucking the last drop of life outta me, he's looking at me with this face that I could just eat up.
Bailey was quite needy this week, I don't think he liked me going… Continue
