Stop! Look! Listen!

I want to remind you of the post of October 24th (Top O' the Morning). Here is further evidence. The claims I suggest in this web site aren't wishful thinking. They are supported by cutting edge scientific research. It is time for you to WAKE UP! (I am reminded of Frank Hebert's wonderful line in the Dune series; "the dreamer must awaken.") Start participating with the "dash of mindfulness" promoted in the Home section of the web site. Review the 7 ideals. (Intellectual Curiosity, for example. Do you have a better idea now, why it is one of the cornerstones?) Quit indulging your ego. Realize that: "If not us, then who? If not now, then when?" (~John Lewis, with a huge assist from Rabbi Hillel)


Everything you and the rest of us experience is Life. It is within this context, and only this context, that you can experience God. Life = God; God = Life. Luke 17:21 reports that Jesus said; "the Kingdom of God is within you." (KJV) So start sharing it! You don't have to wait for an afterlife. Or heaven. NOW! This is the time, here is the place, you are the person. John Dewey said it best: "Men have never fully used the powers they possess to advance the good in life because they have waited upon some power external to themselves, and to nature, to do the work they are responsible for doing."

Lets get busy people, there's a world to change...

  2. Sometimes I question the "quality" of a post. Whether I was in the right place to express my thoughts in the best possible fashion. This is one of those posts. That you took time to comment is appreciated. Thank you so much for taking time.
