 want you to know, Ron, that I've ordered up another year for you. Think I'll call it 2016.

I'm going to put most of the same people from 2015 in it, since you all think so much alike. But there'll also be a few new, very cool cats coming to play - give them some time to grow up though.

And I'm going to have things start off pretty much exactly where they left off in 2015, for continuity's sake. Flips folks out too much when I don't.

All in all, 365 more days in paradise and only one request of you:



Let's do this,

Once again * find myself thanking you for your prayers for my stay in the hospital smile emoticon
I'm some better, but as I said... before, I'm not out of the woods yet & I don't know if I ever will be smile emoticon
Iv accepted this as part of my life & still have a positive vibe about me smile emoticon
If I go back into the hospital again, I'll most likely end up in a nurseing home for the rest of my life & I really don't think that would be to long smile emoticon

Missing Everything?

Oh sure, telepathy becomes second nature, levitation becomes child's play, manifestations are a breeze, and friends instantly recognize each other in spite of the millenniums that had briefly kept them apart.
But do you know what's missed, Ron, by those who move beyond time and space?

Yeah, pretty much everything.

Oh, my!

Consciously Choose Gratitude Instead of a Complaint

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.

Important distinction between being spiritual and positive...

Unify's photo.

 Equanimity holds the balance
 Nancy Odle: I would say, in the strict sense of meaning, Ra, no. Sometimes authenticity can mean more than balance. Think righteous anger. Anger is such a misunderstood emotion. It is authentic and not to be ignored...I often say to my husband (who is one of the most balanced people I know), I want to hear your righteous anger. It is import
Anne Matthews Authentic mean (to me) to be aware of what you are really experiencing on a feeling level and not denying it, but rather accepting it. Then one does not say comments like, "I never get angry." because of some concept that spirituality means not getting angry, so trying to live up to an impossible expectation. That does not mean that if we are angry we must act it out and break things or hit people, but just acknowledge, "I feel anger."
Polly Kay Mannon it means to be aware of the moment with you in it. feelings, sights, sounds, witnessing all that you are in the moment with the moment.... with you. 
good and bad; right and wrong; up and down.... ALIVE, truly ALIVE from the inside out;;; from the outside in. human BEing angel emoticon ty


 Anne Matthews: I think using anger might be confusing, but maybe say envy, instead. It is considered a negative trait. Again, one might acknowledge to oneself, "I am feeling envy" or resentment, or spite, and just look at it, and it dissipates harmlessly.

We are ALL the expressions of the ONE LOVE/Source

Diana A Robbins
It is only in the realization that there is NO "other," that we are ALL the expressions of the ONE LOVE/Source, that we can begin to even understand or enter what we humans have called atonement (reconciliation, at-one-ment). Be still and see that ALL That IS, resides in you, all around you, AS you. This is the meaning of "Christ," a spirit and not one man. Jesus knew this, and so we can call him Christ, for he realized his own Christhood. And we also are of that same spirit--the ONE SON expressed as many. Oh, the oneness of it all... the wondrous oneness! Jesus would not have us worship him as God. He would have us ALL adore one another as God's (Love's) expressions!

Letting go is a leap of faith


Sometimes a "leap of faith" is not worth the risk

Freedom is having nothing left to prove (glad I did all that risky "bucket list" before I was 40)

As the New Year approaches, in 2016,

I am going to surrender more and "try" less...God's Will, not mine

Become a possibilitarian.

“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see the possibilities... always see them... for they’re always there.”
― Norman Vincent Peale

As we grow older we come to more acutely realize that money & "things" don't bring happiness

James Buik:
As the New Year rapidly approaches let us deeply consider what most genuinely contributes to the good life & what this life genuinely consists of. As we grow older we come to more acutely realize that money & "things" don't bring happiness & it is time that turns out to be our most precious commodity & it must not be wasted! Yesterday is not is is history. Nor is tomorrow ours for we don't even know if we will be here tomorrow. Life has a way of being very transitional. We have only today & each day is a very precious thankful & use it well & wisely!

    When pondering on the vastness of the cosmos, Ron, please keep in mind that it goes even farther inward from where you now sit, than outward.

Don't heal yourself from Sadness, Let sadness heal you.

LIKE : Don’t heal yourself from sadness; let sadness heal you. Let it show you the way when you have forgotten. Let it reveal to you the mysteries of love. Let it remind you of your vast heart, your refusal to split off from any part of your ancient Self.:
Sacred Dreams
“Your sadness doesn’t say, “Please fix me, heal me, or release me”. It doesn’t say, “Please get rid of me, numb yourself to me, pretend I’m not here”. It certai...nly doesn’t say, “Please get enlightened so I can die!”.
Sadness does not come to punish you, or reveal to you what a ‘spiritual failure’ you are. Sadness is not a sign that you are unevolved or far from healing, awakening, enlightenment, peace.
The presence of sadness is not an indication that you’ve done something wrong.
Sadness only whispers, “May I come in? I am tired, I long for rest”.
And you reply, “But sadness, I don’t know how to allow you in!”
And sadness replies, “It’s okay. You don’t need to know. I’m already in”.
And we bow to sadness then, we recognise how it’s already allowed in, how there’s enough room in us for sadness, how we are not ‘the sad one’, not contained within sadness, but the room for sadness, its space, its home, its salvation, its loving embrace; not as a goal, but as our nature – consciousness itself, already free.
Don’t heal yourself from sadness; let sadness heal you. Let it show you the way when you have forgotten. Let it reveal to you the mysteries of love. Let it remind you of your vast heart, your refusal to split off from any part of your ancient Self.
Let sadness help you remember that bigger Happiness you danced when you were young.”
~ Jeff Foster

Nobody ever can put out your LIGHT

Nobody can ever put out our light - begin and end with yes...or not
Begin with Yes

In the very darkest moments our light may flicker but it does not go out. It never ever goes out.

Grief from losing ambition and surrendering to the Divine

Courageous is the soul, Ron, who adventures into time and space to learn of their divinity. For while they cannot lose, they can think they have, and the loss will seem intolerable. And while they cannot fail, they can think they have, and the pain will seem unbearable. And while they cannot ever be less than they truly are - powerful, eternal, and loved - they can think they are, and all hope will seem lost. And therein lies their test. A test of perceptions: of what to focus on, of what to believe in, in spite of appearances.

YOU, Ron, are divine -
