Starfish Throwers

Know you will like this: Why throw that starfish back in the ocean, son? There are hundreds of them on the beach. Well, Mr., that one liked being back in the water, and this one and this one...
CRYPTIK uploaded a new video.

THE STARFISH THROWERS | Trailer ~ www.thestarfishthrowers.com
Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired school teacher discover how ...their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger. Award-winning chef Narayanan Krishnan, fighting against the caste system in India, quits his job to begin a life of cooking and hand-delivering fresh meals to hundreds of people in his hometown. Katie Stagliano’s planting of a single cabbage seedling when she was nine years old blossoms into Katie’s Krops, a non-profit with 73 gardens dedicated to ending hunger. Retired middle school teacher Mr. Law battles personal health issues as he hand delivers more than a thousand sandwiches nightly to the hungry in Minneapolis. This documentary tells tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions

Just Breathe

And breathing moment to moment mindfully leads to a more efficient, peaceful and joyous life.
Today's Message - Take just a few minutes every day to just breathe. You'll be amazed at how it will change things for the better! ~ heart emoticon ~

Attempting to get Dr. John Wesley Fisher down here to talk to PTSD Therapist

Ron,
Please also send this information to Mac Burdette, director at Patriot’s Point.  I feel sure he would love to have John give his presentation at one of their volunteer meetings.  Most of their volunteers are VN Veterans.  We clinicians have recently been on a field trip to the new Vietnam Experience and is something to behold.  Mac and his volunteers are trying to branch out more into the community to help other Veterans.  His email is M
Hope to see you tomorrow,
Glenna

Dear Steph, I will be in tomorrow, and I would like to talk to Dr. Ron about Dr. John Wesley Fisher coming down and giving a talk and a slide shows about his annual healing trip to Vietnam, where he has set up Agent Orange clinics and works in them.

John’s purpose is healing and taking vets. Back to Viet Nam, where he helps out at Healing Centers, and re-introduces vets back to their former “enemies”, who take them right into their homes and treats them like Brothers.

I am an avid reader and I have never had a book capture all my emotions like this one. I was not to familiar with this war but I now have such a heart felt understanding for our soldiers and the pain that they went through during battle and afterwards at home that it is heart breaking and yet wonderful to know that there is help for their emotional state. A must read.

Thanks Ron...I'm going to order it smile emoticonMy son has spent 4 yrs. of his life on 4 tours, 2 in Iraq and 2 in Afghanistan. He's a Warrant Officer 2 in the Army and still IN the Army, even after a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Of course he, nor anyone else will tell me much about the injuries he got with the Purple Heart, but the basic story is that he was with some guys and going to retrieve a downed Humvee. They'd all just gotten out of their vehicle when an IED hit. My son was unconscious, and when he came to, he gathered up his guys (and some were dead and in pieces and parts), put them in their vehicle and drove back to base. I heard he had head trauma and was transferred to a hospital for several months. I also heard he has very bad PTSD. WHY he's still in the Army, I don't know. I saw him in July 2013 when he came home for my other son's funeral. Yeah, I unexpectedly lost the child I never thought I would, and that son's death was suspicious. He was a peace officer, but was off work when he died. Anyway, my son who died received a 21 gun salute at his funeral, and my military son almost fainted dead away at the noise. Just crazy awful. My own dad was at Nagasaki after they dropped the bomb, and he had night terrors and would wake up screaming. They did not call that PTSD then. He dropped dead at 35. I found out the bomb was plutonium and affects muscle, and the heart is a muscle. Many others suffered ongoing heart attacks or died young of heart attacks or heart problems besides the cancer. My military son's father and uncle were both Vietnam veterans and they both killed themselves. Yeah...I've pretty much been surrounded by the darker side of war and why, in my first public speech at a peace rally, my most famous line (I guess, since it ended up on NPR radio) was that WAR FOLLOWS EVERY SOLDIER HOME. It does Ron, believe me, it does. Hugs friend xoxoxo

Wake Up World - Choose Peace!



It's Time to Rise and Shine
Glorifying Peace Instead of War


The magnitude of death and sorrow from a violent act is proportional to the degree of technological sophistication employed in the act: The technology separates and dehumanizes us from the actual act of killing, so today, thousands of people can be vaporized instantly but the person who launched the initial weapon will have seen nothing of this but some data on a computer screen. I thought I could do peaceful work inside the United States' nuclear labs, but I learned I was wrong. I realized that environmental and nuclear non-proliferation work was an illusion, designed to lure well-intentioned young scientists into weapons development programs -- so I resigned and chose to work in the name of peace, and now I urge others to do the same.

    Diana A Robbins: So necessary. I think it is in our seeming solitude that we are the LEAST alone
    Valerie Stiehl: YES, WE DO. TIME TO TURN OF THE "STINKIN THINKIN" AND OPEN TO YOUR HIGHER AUTHENTIC SELF. BLESSINGS AND LOVE.

    We all need time apart from the appearances and activities of this world. It is in our seeming solitude that we are the LEAST alone. And it is in our stillness that we are MOST active in being the agents of renewal and reconciliation. Silence is not a void. It is the FULLNESS.

    Strongest Version of Me Ever!

    Healing Light Angels are Speaking



    'The Angels have recently asked me to focus on the healing of others, particular those who have been victims of catastrophic diseases – as well as those who are heroically fighting these horrific diseases.  The Angels, particularly Archangel Raphael, are asking that we devote time each and every day to pray for those affected, their friends and family members, and especially those healthcare workers who are dedicated to helping fight and eradicate this virus.

The Angels know that the world is in fear at this time and they want us to be proactive, to be cautious, and to have faith that this can be contained and removed – just as other diseases have been.  They want us to let go of the fear – which is feeding the situation – and to pray, send positive affirmations and to trust and believe that all will happen precisely as it should.

They ask that we visualize everyone on this earth as being healthy, vibrant and thriving.  We can and we WILL vanquish this virus.  The Angels have promised this and we must all do our part to assist.

Please spend just a few minutes each day with the positive intent of seeing our Mother Earth and all life upon her thriving, healthy and strong. This will help change the vibrational patterns that are currently holding us down. <3'

    For Peace in our hearts and for Peace in our World















    only 3.5 min. and you will be blessed by watching it!

    I am a vet and since I work, voluntarily, with vets at the VA, I am particulary interested in seeing their innocent, pure selves, and to help them see their own. In memory of my dear beloved Barry who wanted to "help not hurt" so he flew unarmed red crossed helicopters - truly an Angel in Vietnam!

    GOD gave us a free will because GOD does not coerce


    Spirituality is your individual walk with God. Every man on Earth is living and making choices in accordance with an invisible life plan that was prepared for your individual enlightenment...What is spirituality? Your individual or personal walk with God, as well as your interactions with other humans...All of it was predefined. You meet no one by accident in this life...You do nothing by chance.....
    Janice Wiggins
    Janice Wiggins 4:35pm Mar 29
    Every aspect of being a human is explored through reincarnation....To complete the spiritual cycle of learning....we must become all that a human can be....To eliminate judgment. To make all men one and the same...;...To eliminate all differences between one man and another...

    Same Pain that Blemishes can Burnish

     
     
     
    The same pain that can blemish our personality can act as a creative force, burnishing it into an object of delight.
    Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan (gratefulness.org_           
    Alchemical Wisdom 

    Nothing "unreal" exists...

     
     
     
     
    Why if nothing "unreal" exists, that the "ego" is so demonized by ACIM? If there is an "ego", it needs to be treated with unconditional love like all of us. And as the body, to exist in this world, we need a "ego" structure. When we are ready to leave the body, then we can leave the "ego" behind. Now an unbalanced "ego" is a problem such as being "egocentric", and then that is a weak concept of self trying to compensate for feeling so unworthy. The "ego" is the new age "satan", and is just as dualistic. I really have found a lot of wonderful wisdom in ACIM - studied with Bill Thetford who embodied the Wisdom by living as if Our Essence is LOVE and we are all ONE! LIVING like Bill should be our goal in life. If we complained about how ACIM diminished the body and demonized the ego, he would peacefully joyously tell us to "tear out those pages."

    Impossible to be separated from God

      It is impossible for anyone ever to become separated from God. “I and my Father are one,” and that relationship of oneness cannot be broken by anyone at any time. It is impossible!

    Gratitude Unlocks the Fullness of Life

    'Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow ~Melody Beattie

Do you notice the shift in your life when you are in a place of gratitude? Curious to know if you feel it and notice the difference when you are not.
