A New Years book called Opportunity

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.

Happiness Bug Pandemic for the new year!

the happiness bug Posted by Shelly Bright - thank you, Shelly - you can see her blog on

May you catch the Happiness Bug.......

HAPPINESS PANDEMIC (HP101) Hits Worldwide!

A Worldwide Epidemic is spreading with enormous speed.

The 'WWO' (World-Wellness-Organisation) foresees billions of people becoming infected within the coming decade!
Here are the most prominent symptoms of this wonderful enlivening 'disease':

1). The tendency to let yourself be guided by intuition instead of acting under pressure of fear, forced ideas and pre-conditioned behaviour.

2). A total loss of interest in:- judging others, convicting yourself and preoccupation with things that create conflict.

3). A complete loss of the capacity to worry: This is one of the most serious symptoms!

4). A continual pleasure in appreciating humans and things the way they are, which weakens one's tendency to want to 'change' others.

5). The desire to change oneself so that innate thoughts, feelings, emotions and bodily matters are managed in ways that facilitate only Health, Creativity and Love.

6). Repetitive attacks of smiling - a smile that says THANK YOU and stimulates being at-one with all those around.

7). A growing openness towards childlikeness, simplicity, laughter and happiness.

8). More frequent moments of communication with one's Soul in non-duality, that in turn creates the pleasant feeling of fulfillment and joy within.

9). Finding pleasure in acting as a Healer who spreads Joy and Light, instead of criticism and indifference.

10). The ability to effortlessly live alone, as a couple, with family, or in a community on the basis of equality, without any need to play the role of executioner (or wanting to be sacrificed!).

11). A feeling of responsibility and joy to share with the world one's dreams of an abundant, harmonic and peaceful future for all.

12). Total acceptance of one's own presence on Earth and the will to choose each moment only for what is gracious, good, truthful and alive!


Do you want to continue living in fear, dependency, conflict, dis-ease and conformism? If so, then at all cost avoid people who display these symptoms;
this disease is very contagious! Medical treatment can temporarily repress the symptoms, although the progress of the disease has very often been inevitable.

There just isn't an 'anti-happiness' Vaccine'!

Because this Happiness Pandemic causes a loss of fear of death, the central pillar upon which the beliefs of materialistic modern-day society rest, there is now a risk of societal turmoil with a complete loss of interest in warfare and the necessity to always be 'right'!

Gatherings of happy people who sing, dance and celebrate life, the emergence of people who celebrate their physical and spiritual healing, crises of extreme joy and even instances of collective emotional vent, are all now at hand!

(May you infect others with 'HP101' where ever you go...

"Be ready for love when it does come. Prepare the field and be ready to nourish love. Be loving, and you will be lovable. Be open and receptive to love." - Louise L. Hay


JUST HAD TO POST THIS may all your heart felt wishes come true this new year

You Are Powerful Beyond Measure...

Our Deepest Fear... by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Release the Deep Spirit of Altruism from Your Hearts

Monday, Dec. 28

If there is anything I have learned about men and women,
it is that there is a deeper spirit of altruism than is
ever evident. Just as the rivers we see are minor compared
to the underground streams, so, too, the idealism that is
visible is minor compared to what people carry in their hearts
unreleased or scarcely released.

Dr. Albert Schweitzer

Amara Rose commented on Ron Alexander's blog post 'Release the Deep Spirit of Altruism that You Carry in Your Hearts

'Thank you, Ron! Yes, we need to extend ourselves in empathy to our spiritual siblings everywhere ... allow all the points of Light to shine effulgently. Many blessings on your good work, Amara

Christmas Self-realization Especially around Family

December 25, 2009
Saturn is the planet of limitations. Today is gets tense with the Sun, which rules the human ego. This Christmas will be one of great self-realization. You have a chance to consider where your family has been and where it is going. Are you adding on?

Self-realizations today -
Forgiveness means peace. Any anger in my heart hurts me even more than the person I am not forgiving. Sometimes with some people, I need to forgive "77x7!"

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven me. -Ephesians 4:32

I draw on God's Love within to Forgive and reduce my judgements to reduce my need to forgive.
As I forgive, I release negative energy that may manifest as resentment or anger. If I feel wronged or annoyed, I release the impulse to judge. The lines of communication remain open, and understanding flows freely. Relationships with family, friends and colleagues flourish when I act with compassion and easily forgive.
I exercise the same attitude toward myself. If I have erred, I learn from it and move on. I draw from the reservoir of God's love within me to give and receive forgiveness.
(alot of this is paraphrased from Unity's Daily Word)

Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.

2. Love in Truth (as I wrote the other day)

I truly believe that the lack of love is responsible for most of the world's ills. And every loving act will ripple outward into dimensions beyond our knowing. Ultimately, we must love ourselves wholly... but until then. the love shown by others seems to help us along. Jeanne of

Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart,and a humble mind. -1 Peter 3:8

So that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them. -John 17:26

With every loving thought we hold, every kind word we express, we contribute to a world at peace.

"Let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth."
-1John 3:18

God's love expresses through me to bless others.

Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God: everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. -1 John 4:7

Again, Have Joyous Holy Days and a peaceful loving New Year! God is LOVE, ron

The Sun is my Blanket
Three Straight Christmases on a Deserted Island

Ron Alexander

With about 20 students on board for our Marine Science under Sail, we celebrated our third straight(in the late '70's) on a beautiful deserted Cay called Little San Salvador. It lies only about 25 miles South of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.
Little San Salvador has a large anchorage with turquoise clear water and a large pink sandy beach. At the Southern tip is a orange, green, red, blue coral reef loaded with a sparkling rainbow-colored marine life plus edible fish & lots of lobster and conch.
I enjoyed being away from stores and the heightened commercialization of the holiday. Our celebration was simple. The nearby reef was an abundant hunting ground, and we captains and crew caught and cooked a sumptuous feast – lobster, grouper, and the versatile conch – conch salad, conch fritters, & fried conch for the Christmas Day Dinner.
Early on Christmas day we drew names for gifts. Only one gift per person, and with nowhere to make a purchase, it would require some ingenuity and creativity. I will never forget the sweetness and humor provided by these simple gifts handed out after dinner on Christmas day. A nice little manger scene crafted from pieces of coral found on beach was my favorite gift. A funny little poem composed especially for the recipient was a welcomed frequent read during the after dinner exchange. I usually gave a nice shell I found while hunting under¬water or sometimes a specially prepared (sautéed with ginger sauce) lobster tail for an addition to the meal. Singing Carols after dinner, what could be better?

Healing Family Forgiveness

Dear friends,

Yes, there is SOMETHING in the air and thanks to Love, it is not "things"! The best and most beautiful things are not things.

My Aunt who is last Matriarch in our family is now asking me for support after a lot of bad feelings last year as my Mom was dying (Dec. 24), and afterwards when my troubled nephew received most of the inheritance. Aunt Jo chose to separate Barry and I by taking him in at his insistence. Also, there was a "counselor", formerly a friend of mine, who backed Aunt Jo on her decision to divide us.

I was his caregiver before Mom's hospitalization. He is a master splitter and managed to help scapegoat me away from my Aunt (and my Mother previously, although I was not cognizant of it.)

Anyway, Barry is now in treatment. And Aunt Jo finally realizes that she cannot caregive for him , and I am gratefully supporting both of them. I have a new part-time job at the Greenville Art Museum, so I can be more available. I will still be spending about 1/3 of my time at the beach.

This healing/forgiving/reconciling with her is wonderful, as she was like a "Auntie Mame" to me growing up, and she and I will work together to help Barry get his life back together! Please pray for us!

Have Joyous Holy Days and a peaceful loving New Year! God is LOVE, ron

Actually one download below that is antique merrygoround (still working) in Monterey!

Here is a special verse for Barry: (and an affirmation)
"This God-his way is perfect;
The promise of the Lord proves true;
he is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
2 Samuel 22:31

I see you, Barry, as an expression of perfect life that provides healing energy for body, mind and soul.
You, Barry, are open and receptive to the wisdom of God within, which whispers the answer to every question and provides supply for every need.
This is true for Barry and me, and about every being on earth.

Time for Manifestation!

"Your hoped for aspirations are now available. This is the process by which all thoughts transform into tangible form"

This is the time to take real control of consciously creating in your life. If things have looked bleak, now its time to turn this energy around. First look at where your thoughts are. Thoughts are transformed into tangible things; they begin with an idea, then the idea meets with a feeling. If the feeling is loving and nurturing, the idea and the feeling create the embryo of the manifestation.

Things are going to change, the question is, which direction are they changing to. Rethink what you 're going to do at this time. <Meditate, keep calm, and take what action you can. Take good care of your health. Start reading, take time out for yourself, and turn your face to the sun. Take a walk in the woods, Enjoy your loved ones, your food, and care for your health. Life is complex, yet so simple.

Angel wisdom reminds you that your intention into this new stage is a most important step and the universe's abundance is open to you. There may be a new beginning of some kind, and new challenges and opportunities are defiantly on the horizon. You are about to start another phase in your karmic journey, a brilliant new phase of this grand adventure called YOUR LIFE is about to enfold, embrace it with passion.

Thanks, Sharon Taphorn & Her Angels

A Prayer I like to read regularly!

My prayer for each of us today is the Prayer of Saint Theresa:

“May there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.”

You are the Light of the World. Thank you for shining your Light brightly.

Joy Pleasure Happiness

Joy - Infinite & Eternal -
"Joy is the realization of our oneness, our soul's oneness with the supreme love." Rabindrath Tagore

"Joy is what happens to us when we
allow ourselves to recognize how
good things really are."
Marianne Williamson

Pleasure - short-lasting - ephemeral
- addictive

Joy - from Being
"Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do and thus into this from deep within you." Eckhart Tolle

Pleasure - to escape, numb

For happiness one needs security,
but joy can spring like a flower
even from the cliffs of despair.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

"My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy." James 1:2

Be Content & Grateful

Friday, Dec. 11

Be contented with what you possess in life;
be thankful for what does not belong to you,
for it is so much care the less;
but try to obtain what you need in life,
and make the best of every moment of your life.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Love is the Greatest Force in the World

Love is the greatest force on earth. It is yours to use
everyday, if you so choose.

Today's Positive Thought

You have two basic choices in life; love or fear.
Choose love.

Today's Positive Affirmation

I AM love and I express love in every thought,
word, and deed.

Today's Positive Visualization

As I take a slow and even breath, I allow myself to sense
a spring of love bubbling up from my center. I imagine this
love flowing throughout my body, mind, and emotions, healing
and transforming every part of my life. In my mind's eye
I see the love within me connecting to the love that is
flowing throughout the world. I affirm that in this
love there is nothing to fear. I trust that this Universal
Source of love will protect and care for me at all times.
I imagine myself going throughout my day sending and
receiving love everywhere I go. In this love, I become a
magnet for all the good things I deserve in life. I combine
these images with the feelings of joy and let them go,
knowing that they will create the good things I am visualizing
and thinking.

Have a wonderful week~end~Love Teri (Theresa F Koch)

Fear Nothing

Monday, Nov. 30

Nothing in life is to be feared,
it is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more,
so that we may fear less.
