Christmas Eve 2018

I am not here to take away from  your celebrations.

I am sitting here at my computer, our big celebration over, and thinking that I like the quiet going on right now.  It’s about 3 hours to midnight on Christmas Eve, 3 hours until the bell tolls and Christmas begins.  Those 24 hours are not the only magical ones in the year, but I watch a lot of people who think so.  Their attitudes get better; they smile more; they are more giving; and, they seem to see many others in a better light.

What more could you ask out of one day?

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you!

Christmas is Coming!

Well, the season is here!  I know; I know…it’s the 21st when it’s official.  But, it’s the 1st at 3:23AM and I am getting ready to settle down.  I took a picture tonight, the first night shot with my new (older) phone.  It’s an HTC1 and I really like it.  Took awhile to figure out how to get the pics off it and on my pc for here, but it’s done.

Anyway, Christmas is one of my very favorite times of the year and Middletown, small that it is, has its own way of showing we are getting ready for Santa…

I know, it’s not a lot.  The streets have lights and all, but this just caught my eye when I was driving home about 9:15pm or so.  I will figure out how to take better shots, but for no flash, I thought this was a decent night shot.  Anyway, this all takes me back to my young days (man, those were a long time ago).  People are happier.  I enjoy going to the stores in town more.

Some of us, don’t care, however:

See?  I don’t think she appreciates Christmas at all.

Happy beginning of the season,

What’s a Little Agreement Among Two People Who Disagree?

I have talked long and hard over the years about diabetes, especially mine.  I have tried the diets, the home cures, the meds, and whatever else seemed to work for some.  I have never seen anyone claim that every single person who does this thing will cure their diabetes.  I don’t really ever expect to.  Diabetes can come from many different directions and head in many others.  Inherited for some, but others seem to just develop it.  Some eat lots of carbs and sweets and get it, while others seem immune to that experience.  Still others, do everything right and still get it, while others eat all they want and don’t get it.

Now, the book “Dying to Be Me” states that it is our pushing our perfection and our nearly unlimited powers inside ourselves that cause us to get large scale diseases like stroke, diabetes, cancer. and others.  I am inclined to agree as the more deeply I delve into this arena of spirituality, the better I seem to feel and get.  As of right now, as I have accepted that I am special (as are we all) and nearly unlimited in what I can do (as are you, too) my body has changed deeply.  My blood pressure is way down even below normal; my sugar has dropped, my memory is returning; I have less and less trouble with my double vision; and I haven’t had so much as a cold in several years.  Not saying my health is perfect, nor am I saying that I have all this mastered.  Not at all, but I am saying, when I stop and take a good stock look at myself, I am much better person than I was several years ago.

You can scoff and laugh, throw up your hands and mark me a faker, liar, or whatever.  I am just noticing that this old world, that I was so angry at, has become beautiful again, and it more so than it was.  I am, well, happy.  I don’t run up hillsides proclaiming it (maybe I should).  I just try hard to help others when I can in my own little ways.  Know what I find out?  Most people are more comfortable with being miserable than being told that they can change it.  They are living in a world where they are comfortable enough that they won’t dare change.

Think about it like this:  if I told you that you can have mostly anything your heart truly desires (down deep inside), you would not believe me.  You, especially, wouldn’t believe me if I told you that you don’t have to work for it; you don’t have to be worn out and sacrifice to get there.  I have proved it enough to myself to dedicate my life to this pursuit, yet, even I fall short of it.  I fail a lot at it.  But, as I keep looking at it, the more I do over the long run, the better it has gotten.  It has been when I fought it and tried to push myself through it that it didn’t work at all.  We learn from life; I know we do because all things work out in the end.  I know we, often, may not see the end as we go along, but it’s there.  So, I keep trying and reading and thinking and believing…in myself and in the Law of Attraction, in quantum physics and in this unlimited, nearly unbelievable power we have been given from God.

As usual, this is not what I sat down to write and may have to change my title.  We will see.  This all came from a discussion within myself.  I have realized that by fighting my diabetic doctor on this front of taking Insulin once at night to balance things out, I am just causing myself to think about the bad effects more and more.  Sure, I have a good part of the medical world who agrees with me.  I will find that just because I am thinking about it.  Sure, I will hear the horror stories about taking insulin, same reason.  But, in the end, I am working against what I say is right for me and good for me and not using my unlimited powers.

So, I have decided to try not focusing on my diabetes so much.  Instead, I started realizing that it is a blessing, at this moment.  A blessing because, if I had not been diagnosed with it, I would have continued to pour in sweets and starches and gotten so overweight I would suffer from clogged arteries (cholesterol normal now), heart attacks (heart is very healthy now), and so many other problems.  I don’t have those because I was told I have diabetes.  I believe I can work toward not having diabetes if I see if as an aid to a path that I don’t need as much help on.  I am better at dieting and thinking and even will power.

So, my next visit I am going to work more with my diabetic physician.  I will compromise.  I have an idea and will present it to him.  We will see.

Now, you want something to really think about?  How about if I had diabetes and ate too much and problems with doctors and all of this just so I could write this post and help one person begin to see the things I am now seeing?  Think about that…need more help?  I have 3 books you really should read.  There are others, but these 3 will really provoke you and start you thinking.  And, I am here – bookman23@comcast.net

Books:  1) Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsh

2) Dying to Be Me by Anita Moorjani

3) E Squared by Pam Grout

Another Request for Help

I do not like asking for things for me, but this is for Sis. I told you she had received the bad news of still having cancer. Tonight we celebrated her birthday and she had to go to bed about 1/2 way through the celebration. This was with her 2 granddaughters in attendance, something she would never normally do.
I am not asking you to give more. God knows you have done your part. But, if it is possible, please tell someone else of Darci’s situation, share it with another group, above all, please continue your prayers. I know God will see to it that we have what we need. I just feel I have to do this one request. It is my hope, it will just be updates after this.

Love you all,

Help My Sister – Go Fund Me…

I stepped into new waters today by creating a GoFundMe for my Sister, Darci.  The three separate cancers are wearing her down and the money situation only made it worse.  I could not help much with the actual cancer part, but I did tell her I thought it would help to do a fund raiser.  This one should reach more people.  I struggled with doing it for about an hour and my learning curve went up in the process.  What I can say is that it’s a great idea and I hope it works as well as I think it does.

You can see it here: Darci’s Fund Raiser Donation

Please let as many of your friends see this (copy or reblog) and ask them to do the same.

Even those (like me!) who really can’t spare much, may feel $5 to be okay to part with to help Sis.

Regardless, thanks for reading this post.  I love you all, even if I don’t know you – my soul does.

Namaste,

Scott
