The willingness to consider possibility...

The willingness to consider possibility requires a tolerance of uncertainty.

"Choose feelings over logic, adventure over perfection, here over there,

Ron, here's a snippet of advice that comes from an as yet undiscovered manuscript buried deep in some Pyrenees mountain cave... 

"Choose feelings over logic, adventure over perfection, here over there, now over then, and always love, love, love."

I believe that the world was created and approved by love, that it subsists, coheres, and endures by love, and that, insofar as it is redeemable, it can be redeemed only by love.

Immense Love - Love in the Moment

We are the convergence of the whole universe. We all have a great need for immensity.
Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan(gratefulness.or...g)
Alchemical Wisdom]

How does one attain this Immense Love? We already have it. Love is the Essence of our Being. However, to realize it now, we must be mindful of it now in this moment. The same thing for Peace. We have to be mindful of Peace every moment. And the same for Joy, we need to be aware of Joy in the moment - mindful of Joy every moment. Love, Peace and Joy awareness by mindfulness in every moment.
Ron Alexander

Only You can bless Yourself

You might not readily believe this, Ron, it might even spook you a bit, but there are those (actually, far more than you could ever guess) who chose this very lifetime, in large part, knowing you'd be there. Tallyho,     The Universe
Only because blessing myself is blessing others, as we are ONE!

We are the convergence of the whole universe. We all have a great need for immensity.

Don't lose sight of the miracle that is your life

Okay, want a friend like this...

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Well, no...

Ron, haven't you always found your way? 

Hasn't there always been a light in the darkness? Haven't you always gotten back up? Haven't there always been serendipitous surprises, unexpected twists, and triumphant comebacks? And haven't you always had someone to love? 

Coincidences? Or maybe, do you think, you, too, have always been loved?

If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

Then You Are Probably the Family Dog!

And you thought I was going to get all spiritual ...

Handle every Stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just
Piss on it, and walk away.


those transcendent moments of awe that change forever

Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.

Here are the real Welfare Queens!

The more you give, the more you will receive!

Ron, I'm hungry. Hungry for adventure.
The adventure of love.

Tell you what: The more you give of it today to the least deserving on your list, the more your life will change.

Please don't cut down our hardwoods anyway!

Walking regularly amongst our FRIENDS, and hope the people who want to cut them down in order to extend a 4 lane highway to our island fail! No extension of Interstate 526 onto our island!

The tide of love rushes in when we focus on gratitude

To feel gratitude find blessings in everything


Begin every day of your life with gratitude

Change the world you look at the world...

Change the way we look at the world...for a change from below: I see this Standing Rock event the beginning of people becoming the focus of support by the governments, and not the corporations and the top 1%!

Transform common days into thanksgiiving

Transform common days into thanksgiiving

How fear disappears...

The greatest gift one can give....

The greatest gift one can give is thanksgiving. In giving gifts, we give what we can spare, but in giving thanks we give ourselves.

The Universe Appreciates Me!

It hasn't always been this easy being the Universe, Ron. Before you came along, I was a lot less. 

Before you came along, there was no one who ever thought like you now think. No one who ever felt what you now feel. And perhaps what I treasure most, no one who's ever possessed your priceless view of reality as you now perceive it. And all of these things have been added unto me. 

Thank you, Ron, you've done enough. You are enough. 

I am so pleased, you have no idea. 

With gratitude and adoration,

"Something that is loved is never lost."—Toni Morrison 

To live now, as we think human beings should live, is itself a marvelous victory!

The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

Hmm, a thought to ponder?

Actually, Ron, it's not that most people don't have much and just want a little.

It's that they have it all and just want a little.

You too. 

Oh my,

Skymaster Down

Ran into a lot of these down in the Bahamas in the 70's. The natives would get paid in pot to bring fuel down to them in 50 gal. drums. The same natives would try to sell it to me cheap. One time, when I was hauling my boat in Man - o - war Cay for the Seventh straight year, they offered it to me for free, since they knew I would be back the next year and pay them from my profits then. I turned them down because the first thing the Coast Guard would do would take your boat away. The most famous plane down was in Normans Cay in the Exumas, it was made famous in the movie BLOW. I used to anchor there before the rich Columbian smuggler purchased it, then they had security with some mean looking dogs patrolling the shores. The Bahamian Navy along with the DEA would raid it a couple a times a year finding nothing. One time I was anchored about 8 miles south on the reef- covered shallow side (we liked to dive). At night, a crew and I took a break in the dinghy, and a few miles away heard some loud outboards and saw some spotlight in a cove on a small dinghy, they were loading up the contraband and speeding it up on the deeper Exuma Sound side. Still if they had seen us, they probably would have killed us, as those Cocaine Cowboys were viscious compared to the laid-back pot smugglers. So we got out of there as quickly as possibly hugging the shallow shores of the cays, to stay out ot their sight and depth hopefully. When we got back we excitedly told our Swiss Students (adults) about this event and one said "smoooglers" what is that?

Show less

Give in full measure.

A hundred times a day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other people, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the full measure I have received and am still receiving.


Your heart is opening....

Know everyone by their good traits,

Ron. Your heart is opening,     The Universe
