Your greatest enemy is the imagination of an enemy, when you fearfully begin living your whole life defensively.
Manisha Pathak: nice one......cos when u are in defensive mode....things attack even from the sources u werent aware of.
In defenselessness, my safety lies...(ACIM)
This is very valuable to me, as I have to confront a business partner. I was in a defensive mode, so now I am going to drop that and just greet him eye - to - eye with my truth! Thanks Bobby Hinkle & Manisha plus ACIM!

- The Buddha
Most of the time, when you succumb to feelings of anger, it eats you... up inside and makes you sick emotionally and physically, but has little or no impact on the person with whom you are angry. I think that speaks volumes about the value (or lack thereof) of anger.
.Ron Alexander I have to admt that I don't understand how one can obtain something wthout working for it ?
Marian Fisher: When I think of all the things I have done in my life Ron, I too am in awe that our good and merciful Lord still considers me his friend. I guess by giving His love without us working for it is a miracle in and of itself, and I fully concur with you.
"Grace is God's Life wthin" Marian Fisher - I asked her above if she stood by this definition:
Marian Fisher: Oh yes Ron, I stand wholeheartedly, because whenever grace leave, I feel it's lasting effects. Grace, like our Lord, is our spiritual life blood, and is what keeps our soul alive.

and could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life,
your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy." ~ Kahlil Gibran
Alexander, you are never a bother : ) I appreciate your "reframing"; the all
is mental and using impeccable speech will gain you impeccable results. I hope
you are having a wonderful day.

you in recognition that real-life adventures and journeys
take time to play out. In physical life, you
have to actually cruise fromHong Kong to
NewYork, and you will be best served by enjoying all the
little things(mindfulness) and people and events along the way. Enjoyment is key.
The feeling of fulfillment, flowing to you in a gentle, steady steam
will keep you on track with God’s journey.
Your arrival is assured! Select the things you want to have in your life:
love, money, riches,adventures—anything!—and then allow the easy, Spirit
driven journey to take place. You just take gentle, easy steps in those
directions, and allow the Universe to boost you up. It's more like an
escalator than the Titan V rocket! One day at a time you can become
wealthier, loved, romanced, adventurized, andvitalized by Source.
Here is rest of story beginning at the start-
When you are in the flow of
Source, aligned with the Great Plan for Harmony, the smoothness of your journey
and the easiness of it will be deceptively undramatic to your child ego state.
Your childish ego wants breakthroughs and big adventures, smash-em-ups and
intense romance; all the stuff your graphic novels and mainstream movies are
made of. The adventures on the screen and the adventures of your day to day life
are different in flavor, and it is quite easy to fall into being a critic of
your own life experience because it’s not a thrill a minute.
Taking things one day at a time will
serve to keep you in recognition that real-life adventures and journeys take
time to play out. In physical life, you have to actually cruise from
Hong Kong to NewYork, and you will be best served by enjoying all the little
things and people and events along the way. Enjoyment is key. The feeling of
fulfillment, flowing to you in a gentle, steady steam will keep you on track
with God’s journey. Criticizing yourself because it's not a smash-em-up thriller
of dark intrigue and romance and breakthrough will derail your journey.
Your arrival is assured! Select the
things you want to have in your life: love, money, riches,
adventures—anything!—and then allow the easy, Spirit driven journey to take
place. You just take gentle, easy steps in those directions, and allow the
Universe to boost you up. It's more like an escalator than the Titan V rocket!

them.”~Ram Dass In the bilge...
Knowledge is putting them together.
Wisdom is transcending them.” ~Ram Dass
"Transcendence" can be a problem however, if one uses it as part of a denial system. I was doing that when after starting grad. school, the first time, we were in process groups, I was confronted for not being upfront about having any problems. They were right, I was meditating like crazy to "avoid" having any, and I certainly did not want to share my darkside - especially being only one from South in California

Luv Bob Marley
Love is what I live for! Don't worry, be happy is reward! ♥ Peace & Joy Reggae version of this song, however I think Meher Baba started the joyful phrasez? "Don't worroy be happy, I will help you"? I saw a card with this on it and photo of Meher Baba back in 70's as I was about to depart on my annual cruise from Charleston to the Bahamas. I returned in a few months to find Baba's International Center only a few miles from my parent's house in N. Myrtle Beach. 550 acres of Virgin forest next to ocean. Housing is primitive there but cheap and well worth a spiritual retreat. Peace & joy, ron

I recommend pushing that go arrow and listen to her very soothing calming voice - you will feeling loving healing!
Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

experience again the wonders of the totality of your Greater Self, you will take
that whole bodily presence thing a lot less seriously. Your life there is not a
life and death matter! You will no more die when your body ceases to be, than
the sun will quit shining when nightfall comes…you will simply go on to shine
Here is full text:
"Time is compressible and expandable,
certainly by your level of involvement, just as space is expandable and
compressible. Stopping time altogether violates your agreement to be physical;
but yes, time can be stopped altogether. The movement of it is an
illusion/artifact of your physical presence in the time-space
"In your meditation you may enter
timelessness, and you may certainly walk about with an altered sense of time.
You may also leave the boundaries of time and space by disconnecting your
physical body from your True Self. You sort of leave your body there as a golem
and wander off. Your cohorts there call it astral projection, and that is
inaccurate. You were astrally projected into that body in the first place, so it
is more accurate to say that you are astrally de-projecting yourself, to return
to your Native Natural State Of Being; what you were before you became human
"Astral projection is no big deal—you are
presently doing it every day when you wake up in that physical body of yours.
Does this make sense? You are projecting yourself there now, so in order to
project yourself anywhere else you just have to detach from that physical body
(which most of your resist because you think that means death) and allow
yourself to wander. It is mostly sheer force of habit that keeps most of you
there anyway. (Laughing)
"If you will truly re-cognize, re-know,
the eternal nature of your own being; experience again the wonders of the
totality of your Greater Self, you will take that whole bodily presence thing a
lot less seriously. Your life there is not a life and death matter! You will no
more die when your body ceases to be, than the sun will quit shining when
nightfall comes…you will simply go on to shine somewhere else."

Arthur Miller married Marilyn but same judgements of both men, even though I mixed them up in an earlier post. I think I mixed them up as a teenager also?
Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. there is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation,all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.” ―# Henry Miller#
in 1956, #Arthur Miller# found himself persecuted by the very force that he warned against, when he was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Miller refused to name people he allegedly saw at a Communist writers' meeting a decade before, and he was convicted of contempt. He later won an appeal. Also in 1956, Miller married actress Marilyn Monroe. The two divorced in 1961, one year before her death. That year Monroe appeared in her last film, The Misfits, which is based on an original screenplay by Miller.
So I was wrong about both men as Henry did write erotic literature and was famous for his sexual ttrysts & atheism at his isolated cabin in Big Sur at about the same time period. I was a teenager - innocent and ignorant in the Southeast judging both men harshly & wrongly!

Make it a good dream! illustration (for my book) by Chad Chrysler

commandment “Do not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” Besides not lying, it seems to also say not to carry (bear) judgment around with you as if it were real.
Well, for the one doing the judging, it is real. That’s just it. Whatever you
judge things to be becomes your reality. And if your neighbor
does not want to participate in what others think of him or her, then the
Universe has to cough up somebody who does fit into their judgment pattern of
So we think bearing false witness, or any other kind of witness against your neighbor is a bad idea. We don’t even think you should hold the true stuff against them. Forget for a
minute about the false witnessing thing, something completely made up. We think
most of you can see that if you are making something up, you are not doing them
or you any favors. But consider the neighbor who really did do something awful,
or the neighbor who has an awful disease. Why hold that against them, especially
when you are the one who holds it?
If you hold them in
place of being a criminal or ill, you only serve to create more of it in your life experience. And most likely it
will not come from the one across the street that you know about. If you hold
them instead in the place of wellness and light and joyful living they will
either live up to your expectations, or the Universe will deliver you someone
who will. Your expectations set the tone for everything that comes to you. Do it
for you if not for them.
If revenge is a dish best served cold, then forgiveness is a dish best served
piping hot and fresh off the platter. Forgive and forget; really. See them as you wish they
were!! Hold them in a light that is sobright that you transform them into the person they would really like to be; powerful, safe, secure, happy. It is that light that will transform your world
and assure that you will always receive the happy content of your
There is no large and difficult task that can’t be divided into
little easy tasks.
"Silence empowers the word..."- thanks so much Bobby Hinkle
Bobby Hinkle: Words have power only through the silence surrounding them. Silence empowers the word. Thus, a mind is most powerful in silence. In silent there is no duality.

Ron Alexander: The best communication with a first mate I had on a sailboat was done in silence! She knew what to do to help the boat run without me having to say anything. She did have alot of experience on other boats. Still that silence extended into the rest of our relationSHIP also which help our regard for each other immensely. Unfortunately, she wanted to continue her profession as an architect in another country. We met at a Yoga Teachers Training in the Bahamas, and I did not even notice her until she and 9 others wanted to go saiing after graduation
