Think ONE!!

I don't care who you are .  .  .  WE could be black, brown, white, yellow, green, or purple .  .  .  When we look at other human beings, we tend to see the differences .  .  . 

Skin color, clothing, hair style, beliefs, music, and on and on .  .  .

What we don't see, incredibly, are the similarities .  .  .

Gotta LOVE modern technology .  .  .  What is tells us is, we are all 99.6% genetically identical .  .  .  

That's right .  .  .  Each human being, no matter race or ethnicity, is 99.6% identical to every other human being .  .  . 

And yet .  .  .  YET .  .  .  We see what separates us .  .  .  Not what can bring us together .  .  .

Here's the key .  .  .  Every being is a Divine being .  .  .  A piece of God, the Creator, the Source .  .  .  

The sooner we begin to see ourselves that way, and others that way, the sooner we'll make progress toward a more peaceful world .  .  .

We can only do that ONE person at a time .  .  .  And, that ONE person is ME, and YOU .  .  .  

It's all about self-transformation .  .  .  If it doesn't start there, it doesn't start at ALL .  .  .

Life is beautiful!

Peace and love .  .  .

Until next time .  .  .  Ciao!

What do we take for granted?

I belong to a group that meets one Saturday per month .  .  .  It's a very esoteric group, and we get into some fascinating topics .  .  .  At any rate, L'air (the miracle man I've written about a few times) is a part of it, as is a man named Don .  .  .  We were discussing this and that, and we came around to a discussion about gratitude, and the human tendency to take things for granted .  .  .  The question that arose was, why does it seem to be a part of the human condition to take things for granted, and not instead express conscious gratitude for those things we're taking for granted?  

L'air has a completely different view of life since he's undergone his incredible Journey since November 2010 .  .  .  He's far more grateful for everything in his life than he ever was .  .  .  Don lost his wife to a heart attack in the winter, and he spoke of that event making him more grateful for things which he realizes he's taken for granted .  .  .

So, the obvious question is, why aren't we ALL more grateful?  I'm probably no less guilty than anyone .  .  .  Why isn't everyday Thanksgiving, in a sense?  Perhaps it can be, if we develop some kind of simple daily ritual taking a few seconds to consciously express our gratitude .  .  .  People who are grateful tend to be happier people in general .  .  .  They tend to be more kind, more giving, more compassionate .  .  .  My last post was about the inspirational Curtis Jackson, a homeless man who is giving his money to a woman and her son who are in need .  .  .  My guess is that Curtis Jackson IS consciously grateful for what he has .  .  .

Life is beautiful baby!

Peace and love .  .  .

Until next time .  .  .  Ciao!!

Inspirational? You bet it is!

I came across this story this morning on Yahoo .  .  . It's about a homeless Chicago man who is giving away his money to help a woman (who lost her job at a bank) and her son .  .  . Here's the text of the Yahoo article .  .  . 

Every day, Curtis Jackson panhandles on Chicago's streets, collecting spare change from passing strangers. Now, he's giving the money away.
Since December, the homeless hero has given almost $9,000 to an unemployed banker and her son. When the woman was successful, he says she treated him with dignity and respect. Now that she's in trouble financially, Jackson is repaying her for her kindness.
The down-on-her-luck 39-year-old mother lost almost everything when she lost her job, including her house.
Without a home for her son, she would lose custody of him to the state. A social worker paid for her to stay in a hotel for a couple of nights. But then Curtis Jackson showed up.
The homeless good Samaritan started paying her hotel bill. Every single day.
"All I can do is get out there and put a sign in my hand, or put a cup in my hand and ask people to help me out, and everything I get, except maybe bus fare and something to eat, I give it to her," Jackson told FOX Chicago News.
He says that when the banker and her son — both unnamed in the press — no longer need his assistance, he'll move on to helping someone else.

This takes me back to something I truly believe .  .  .  Every human being is a Divine being .  .  .  We are ALL a piece of God .  .  .  Some people understand that, and some don't .  .  .  When we understand this and act accordingly, the positive vibration of that permeates every space we go into .  .  .  This man's behavior in this instance simply reinforces that belief .  .  .  Every human being has a story, and a karmic destiny .  .  .  No one person's Journey through this lifetime is any more or any less sacred than any other .  .  .  We are ALL a piece of God .  .  .  And the Universe has and will bless Curtis Jackson .  .  .
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love .  .  .
Until next time .  .  .  Ciao!

Armageddon . . . Really?

This is NOT the type of blog I'd ever intended to write, because it is engendered by some bad feelings .  .  .  I mean, I sent all my savings to Harold Camping, and then sold all my worldly goods and sent that money too .  .  .  I wanted Harold Camping, the greatest prophet of modern time, and his family and underlings to live in luxurious comfort until the last day .  .  .  Or, supposed last day of May 21st .  .  .  Yeah, Harold, NOW what do I do?  Should I hold my breath until October 21st, your revised date?  I'm seriously pissed Harold!  I'm writing this on a laptop I stole from a third grader .  .  .  But I'm pretty sure God wanted me to have it .  .  .  After all, you've been taking money for years (80 million between '05 and '09) if we can believe the news media .  .  .  So, what's one little laptop compared to 80 mil?  

OK, I jealously guard my karma, so I have to come clean on this .  .  .  Not much of what appears in that first paragraph is true .  .  .  I did not send ol' Harold my money, nor did I sell my possessions .  .  .  I did, however, give some clothing to the Salvation Army .  .  .  I certainly do NOT think ol' Harold is the greatest prophet of our time .  .  .  But certainly, one of the greatest FALSE prophets, definitely .  .  .  And that laptop thing?  I haven't stolen anything since that twenty-five cent Oh Henry bar in '68 .  .  .  And I'm certain I worked off that bad karma long ago .  .  .

The really sad thing is that ol' Harold will still be raking it in .  .  .  The sad thing is that there will still be plenty of people who will follow and believe his every word .  .  .  The sad thing is many people are now penniless because they followed ol' Harold's admonitions .  .  .  The sad thing is that when it comes to religion, many people put their God-given intellect on hold and will believe the crap that comes out of the mouths of certain televangelists, who plead for money to support their VERY comfortable, if not outright luxurious lifestyles .  .  .  The sad thing is that some people will misuse their spiritual power to pad their own egos and bank accounts .  .  .  BTW, I do believe one or two televangelists are OK people, but which one or two?  I have no idea!

So, I had an idea last night .  .  .  At exactly one minute after midnight CDT, I bit the head off a chicken, boiled it's blood and drank it .  .  .  Mmmmmm!  Delicious!!  Then, I drank as much as I could from a bottle of Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Tequila without passing out .  .  .  Followed that up with 20 wine gums .  .  .  Turned on the television and watched the first thing that appeared, which was an infomercial about increasing penis size .  .  .  And finally, once I felt my consciousness had been sufficiently raised, I contacted the Gods of the Universe, who by the way, are REALLY cool dudes .  .  .  Know what they told me?  The world IS going to end on a specific date .  .  .  Which date, you ask?  Tell you what .  .  .   Send me an e-mail, and I'll respond with instructions as to how to send me all your money, turn all your assets over to me, and make me a very rich man!  Oh, and I'll give you the REAL exact date of THE END .  .  .  Because clearly, Harold Campis just can't seem to get this thing right!  Hah!!

Life is beautiful baby!

Peace and love .  .  .

Until next time .  .  .  Ciao!!   

PS .  .  .  To all the PETA people .  .  .  That chicken thing?  Maybe it didn't go down exactly like that .  .  .  lol  But I gotta tell ya .  .  .  Sammy DOES make some fine tequila!  :)

L'air V

If you've followed L'airL'air IIL'air III, and L'air IV you'll know my dear friend L'air has had some SERIOUS health issues .  .  .   To the point where, we were told in November that L'air wouldn't last the weekend due to multiple organ failure .  .  .

If anyone out there in the blogging Universe doubts the power of prayer, or the existence of a higher power, or the ability of higher beings/entities to intercede on our behalf (thank you St. Rita!), you can put those doubts aside permanently .  .  .  Because my dear friend L'air is thriving .  .  .

L'air is one of the most spiritually connected human beings I know .  .  .  He believes!  And he backs it up .  .  .  And his doctors have said multiple times, you're NOT here because of anything WE'VE done .  .  .  We wrote you off .  .  .  This one is a miracle!  Do you want the definition of "miracle"?  The definition is L'air .  .  .

Peace and love .  .  .

Life is beautiful baby!!

Until next time .  .  .  Ciao
