“My mind is a bad neighborhood I try not to go into alone.”–Anne Lamott

Love her books and this site is really good.

“Thinking the physical world is all that matters is like shutting oneself up in a small closet and imagining there is nothing beyond it.”—Eben Alexander

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…

Law of attraction success story: “My law of attraction experiments”

Thanks for reposting this one. I had kinda forgotten about those days of testing…wonderful…brought me full circle!

law of attraction

Contributor: The wonderful Scott Vannatter of Kindredspirit23’s Blog, from which the following law of attraction story was excerpted.

I have done a lot of study and a lot of reading on the subjects of the mind, of intention and its power, and of creation. It is my full and total belief that we create our world by thinking about it. Quantum physics is piecing all of this together and a lot of science is coming around, too. It has now been proven that a subatomic particle (electron) can be in multiple places at once. I would postulate (as have others) that each of us has the power within our brains to bring thoughts into reality, and that we do so constantly.

The Magic of Believing by Claude M. Bristol and E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout are just two of the…

Here is My List of Things I don’t like or don’t Understand…

OM at Harsh Reality started this with his list.  See it here.  My list is different, but I notice some similarities.  Have fun!  Enjoy the nice weather and the holiday!

  1. I hate when I am on a dating site and I read about this fantastic woman and her traits.  I am really happy, then I read the last line, “If you voted for Trump, we won’t get along.”  Heck, that’s fine, but couldn’t you have said that FIRST!!!?
  2. I hate when you grab your phone for an important call you had forgotten to make, see the power bar is flashing and you punch in your number only to have the phone die when they answer.
  3. I hate when I grab my satchel and keys, drive 15 minutes to the store, face the crowd, only to find out I left my wallet next to the computer earlier – then, it rains.
  4. I hate when I download a good movie to my tablet, then, when I go to watch it, it says “expired”.
  5. I hate when I walk into the kitchen to get something, can’t remember what it is, figure that out and pick up the thing, then can’t remember why I wanted it.
  6. I hate when I get beat to a parking space or rush only to find the next car is over the line, and all I can think about is Kathy Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes.
  7. I really hate when a blog writer doesn’t know when to stop…

Namaste,

Scott

Remembering Jackie

I enjoy reading athingirl.com, doing so often. This is a fine example of how well she writes and how well she can share her heartfelt thoughts.

It was May, 1994, when I was coming home through Central Park, wondering why there were so many news trucks along Fifth Avenue.

I had yet to learn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, better known to the world, as just Jackie, had come home to die.

She had been suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma for almost a year assuming she’d recover.  When she learned it had gotten worse without a chance of that happening, she made the decision to call it a day.

I’ve often wondered how that must have been for someone like her who lived such an amazing life, now choosing to leave it.

I wandered into the grocer’s where Harry, the produce man, told me Mrs. Kennedy, as she was always called, just received the last rites, according to her longtime cook, not expected to live through the night.

The whole neighborhood was shocked and saddened since, though we didn’t…

Regifting

Could not agree more. I make sure that I tell people when I create my Amazon list that all books and DVDS can be in “Very Good” shape, not new. I just hate highlighting and underlining. Leave that out an we are fine.

DON’T!!!

Let’s do one another a favor passing on the impulse.

Just now, for instance, I opened a box of chocolates whose presenter will remain nameless,  that looked as if they came by way of Gaza, and that’s putting it politely.

The box itself was crushed on both ends and rather than, Fine Swiss Chocolates, said… ine iss colates, which made me wonder if it was some type of French bubble bath or inflatable undies you blew up.

They came in a second box with a scarf perfect for Barbie who they may have been shopping for.

And no, we can’t blame it on the mail since it was delivered in person. I, adhering to the old Connecticut custom of opening your gifts Christmas morning didn’t, while the party was in residence.

Was it my imagination, or were they relieved?

Could have been all that wine they drank.  See, I’m…
