Today I heard a Radio Shock Jock from the Boston Area say "How dare Obama go to Amsterdam, why is he going to Amsterdam while our Troops are dying in Afghanistan ???" he also said that Roman Polanski is going to be defended by the Attorney Generals private Attorney and that's because of Obama or he at least instigated it, ??? he then launched into Obama and Acorn, and even went all the way back to Reverand Wright ??? The Rightwing Nutjobs spew all of this insanity and The Republican Party still… Continue
Sometimes we become so attached to the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves that they obstruct our growth and happiness. In the 1960's, the comedy team known as the Smothers Brothers used to do a running joke about "Mom always liked you best". It was funny because we could see how it defined their relationship, and we could laugh at this silly attachment to a belief with a hint of recognition that we had similar patterns, but without having to identify our own ego based… Continue

Isn't it amazing how much a friend can help and get us further! Just by asking the right questions, saying the things that our souls are longing for. Sometimes all that we need is the someone who would believe in us, in what we're really capable of.
Here's one story:
The good friend of mine, Rein, had tried to call me yesterday. But as I was at work then and I did notice it in the middle of the day today. So I called him back. I had not seen… Continue
You folks seem to have the peace, love, arts, etc well covered. I guess I will have to add a bit of humor by sharing some of the things I see, hear, do and say. Have a little chuckle on me.
The other day I was at the YMCA in the hot tub after my workout. A young lady had her little girl, about 3 or 4 years old, in the pool. The little kid was having the time of her life but she repeatedly emitted a shrill screech that I am certain would rival those crazy crowd control thingys. I… Continue
Integrating a new paradigm into an existing one can be a challenge. You may put up emotional resistance or feel confused and unclear about what to do. There is a part of you that is not influenced by limitations, doubt, or separation. The key is to find this part and learn its language. This part of you is already clear about change and can take you out of the fog. Once you open up the channel the conversation will begin and clarity will reveal itself to you.
Day`s breaking-another night goes sleeping
Day`s breaking-another moon is waning
Day`s breaking-another age is missing
Day`s breaking-another tower`s tumbling down
to the very ground of time and space
Edie, put out the lamp - cold light`s been burning long enough - on our naked skin
Please give me your hand - and let us listen quiet `til the bird of dawn - has finished singing Song of Morn
Draw up the window shade - see there´s a glimmer and a shimmer -… Continue

Everything on this earth, from the stones, to the people, from the animals to the very molecules we breathe have no worth, other than that which "we the people" place upon them~ It is high time to once again in our history as a species redefine that which we label as priceless....for life and love are no longer there~
While it is understood within the company of those that may come to read this, that my above thoughts are completely false and can be proven so by the heart and works… Continue
Faith can be challenged when outer circumstances do not match your growth in inner awareness. This can cause you to question your belief system. It is normal to desire outer verification. However, faith by its very nature, imples that sometimes you need to go forth into the unknown, knowing that all will enfold in divine order. Faith is built on the understanding that it takes time for integration to occur between what is inside us and what is on the outside.
Thought you might enjoy this. Elihu, my now 6 year old son and I lay together in bed occasionally and just talk - in the morning and at night. Yesterday he had an idea. It went something like this: "I have an idea. Love is not matter. It has no mass. So you can't have more or less of it. It just is. Love is IS. And it IS all at the same time. Is is always and everywhere."
So there! wow.
Gaza Development Authority: A New Deal Model for the Middle East
It is difficult to predict the political future of Gaza both in terms of relations between Hamas and Fatah as well as the future relations with Israel and Egypt. What is certain is the Israel-Gaza conflict and the long embargos have crippled and in some cases destroyed the manufacturing and agricultural sectors of the Gaza Strip where some one and a half million people depend on… Continue
