The Winds of Change…

I am sitting here at 10:39AM, tired and restless.  I woke up early and can’t seem to sleep just yet.  I have watched a couple of shows and then checked my FB.  A news teaser led me to more info concerning the car attack in Charlotte.  I continued watching Trump’s response and the responses to the response.  I am…upset.

I still believe we are better with Trump than with HC.  But, I can tell you that POTUS apparent position on Net neutrality, LBGTQ, and now, this Domestic Terrorism action, as well as the mess over the KKK leader, have all caused me to stand back and drop my jaw as I see such problems coming from the man so quickly and so intently.

I will not say to anyone I wish the “impeach” word to be acted on.  I will not say that he is the anti-Christ or some such.  I will not say he is a bad man.  Most of you know I don’t go for such as all that.  But, he worries me.  I am not seeing quite the strong leader I hoped to see.

In my fav video game, one of the merchant’s retorts when asked about buying an arrow to down a dragon: “…and the quiver that dispenses beer?”  Yeah, you might as well give me one of those as well…

Namaste,

Scott

Introducing…Scott Vannatter MC…

I have been giving thought, no, not to running a circus, but I have been thinking about beginning a discussion group in my home.  I can say it on here.  I may get the same type of “OMG”s as in RL, but I can handle them better.  And, those “no”s aren’t necessarily stopping me; I just don’t want to hear them right now.  I understand beginning a group in your home invites crime; it also offers serenity and a peaceful controlling atmosphere.  Anyway, I have been thinking about it since I was ordained into the “Universal Life Church”.  Yeah, I know, $25 and ten minutes and anyone can do it.  Not the point.  Since then I had started thinking about starting a church.  Then, I thought that would kinda undo what I really wanted.  I simply wanted a couple hours a week where people, like me, could go and share their thoughts on the “Power of Attraction” and God and life, in general.  A non-judgmental, quiet time without much disagreement and more discussion.  I thought a meeting with no money involved, a little prep on my part, and a few interested people might just work.  I have been hearing how so many people do follow God because religion gets in the way.  I want a spiritual atmosphere where people are accepted and can feel free to talk to be available.

Anyway, saying all this just so it was out in the universe instead of just in my head.  Any comments, good or otherwise are fine.  I would like suggestions and thoughts from all of you.

Namaste,

Scott

Losing One of Our Own

Recently, a military refueling plane crashed in Mississippi and killed 16 personnel.  One of those, Ryan Lohrey (30), was from Middletown, IN, my home.  My town is <5,000, so he was known well around the town.  I went to school with 2 of his uncles, one of whom was a classmate and and I played golf with the other.

Losing someone in a small town hits everyone who lives there.  Seeing my town’s name used so in an article, ARTICLE, brought feelings of sorrow and a bit of fear to my mind.  It’s difficult thinking about actual death and when it gets even town-close, that’s a bit scary in a small rural area.

He had just gotten married for the second time one month earlier, so I cannot even imagine what his widow is going through as well as his two children from the previous marriage.

I am not going to draw this out.  If you want more details either view the article above and/or ask me in a comment.

I thank you for reading.

Namaste,

Scott

One of the great joys in my life is knowing the universe is so much bigger than anything I can conceive, in knowing that miracles (or what we call miracles) reside right on the other side of the veil I’ve imposed with my very limited brain.

As cool as the brain is, a veritable network of neural pathways, it actually puts up a tremendous barrier to Truth. It limits, it takes all the available input and boils it down to what I call “Cliff Notes for Dummies.” Sadly, our Cliff Notes are restricted to what we’ve decide to let in, to what we’ve erroneously pick up from our culture, our family upbringing and the six o’clock news.

As the Course in Miracles says we would…
