Turn,Turn,Turn 

                     

To everything turn, turn, turn 

There is a season turn, turn, turn 

And a time to every purpose under heaven. 

 

A time to be born, a time to die 

A time to laugh, a time to weep 

A time to mourn, a time to dance 

A time to plant, a time to reap. 

 

To everything turn, turn, turn 

There is a season turn, turn, turn 

And a time to every purpose under heaven. 

 

A time to rend, a time to mend 

A time to gain, a time to lose 

A time to cast away stones, 

A time to gather stones together.

THE WORLD WILL ALWAYS BE LIKE THIS 

“Don’t expect the whole world to be enlightened one day. It would be like walking into a Detroit automobile factory and seeing only finished cars. If the factory were full of finished cars, it would no longer be a factory; it would become a showroom. Likewise, you wouldn’t go to a university and say “When will the only people here be degree holders?” 

The universe itself is a university. People come as students; they study and learn. A few people get their diplomas and walk out.. The world will always be…

George Harrison and the Tao Te Ching 

I was reading a passage from the Tao Te Ching and was reminded of a song by George Harrison, “The Inner Light”.

I listened to it again and discovered that George was probably reading the same passage and was inspired to write the song.

Tao Te Ching  (47)

translated by Stephen Mitchell

 

Without opening your door

you can open your heart to the world.

Without looking out your window

you can see the essence of the Tao.

 

The more you know

the less you understand.

 

The Master arrives without leaving,

Animal Communication 

Reading “Kinship With All Life” by J. Allen Boone again after many years. I am seeing it through new eyes and understanding the depth of what he is teaching about animal communication.

 It begins with his relationship with Strongheart, a German shepherd movie star, and what this noble intelligent dog taught him. …”behind every object which the senses can identify, whether the object be human, animal, tree, mountain, plant or anything else, and right where the object seems to be, is the mental and spiritual…

Something to Embrace for this Holiday Season and Always 

There are so many mis-alignments brought on in so many ways by the old structure holding on for dear life to its power and selfishly obtained wealth. Worshiping in the temple of what no longer serves us.

I’d like to focus on what we are creating:

“We have met the enemy and they are us” (Pogo).

“I am you, and you are me, and we are all together” (The Beatles).

“God in me, as me, is me”

“Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.”

"We can not simultaneously…

I Believe in the Human Heart 

I believe in the human heart as the center fire of our spiritual existence in a human body on the earth plane. That as we all breathe to live, these are our common connections around the globe. And in the peaceful centered mind in our hearts breathing in gratitude we connect with our common source, which has many names. And through this prayerfulness we can reach others in compassion and hold them safely, and guide our way to peace upon the earth in the winds of grace.

 

I believe in walking the beauty…

Peace 

 

Peace is a state of the heart that is steady when all that rushes in from the mind of the worldly pulls us and distracts us from that which is inherently ours. A connection with the Divine, the Universal, the stillness that is always available to us if we but remember – to follow the breath as it comes in and goes out. Watch the breath’s independent ebbing and flowing to connect our bodies, hearts and minds with the unlimited present. It is knowing that now between the past and future is all that is…

Speaking of Sound and Silence 

Silence is a precious gift. An inalienable right omitted from the US constitution From the field of silence all sounds can spring. It is the space of breath and the place of listening. In the silent spaces among between and within sound is the place that allows the assimilation of what is heard. The nervous system, heart and cells of the body of necessity are slower to know what is experienced than the mind Creating breathing spaces in music allows deeper listening and an opening by the body on all…
