Being Thankful

I am enormously thankful for my family, and my friends, all of whom I adore and cherish, but I feel especially thankful to love, for loving and embracing me as only she could. Life has taught me that love is truly the greatest blessing, that all good things arise from the foundation of love; every smile, happiness, celebration and laughter, playfulness, flower, fragrance, food drink, song and dance…they all begin with, and in, the garden of love. So I want to take this moment to warmly & graciously thank Love, for showing me the way, and for bringing so many wonderfully loving people into my life, but mostly for teaching me that while there are oh so many paths in this world to take, Love is the only one that will bring you home cured. I thank you so much Love, for teaching me that! dwp

Love and Unity

I wrote this 7 years ago but I think it’s more fitting now:

The Earth is changing more rapidly than it has ever before. Humanity is awakening from a deep sleep. Yes, we were blind. We were distracted. We were lied to. We were deceived. But thank God that now we can see. We will not be complacent or apathetic any longer. Many many centuries ago the great prophets and civilizations of this planet spoke of a time when human consciousness would shift, and the human race would finally realize the oneness of all living things that are, ever were, or will be. Now is that time. The great shifts occurring in the cosmos are within us, and are beautiful, and will serve to help us further evolve so that we, as a species may reach our fullest potential, to once again raise our love vibrations to live more harmoniously with one another, in unity. The time has come to live in love and peace together. There is nothing for you to do…but to love the man or woman standing next to you. Smile when she smiles at you, do not be afraid. Do not have evil thoughts. Be more pure. Live close to your heart. This is the way to raise our love frequencies

On this day, let us begin with meditation; take a walk, perhaps with your beloved, and enjoy the beauty of this wondrous creation. Meditate on how extraordinary it is, and relax, and melt into the idea that you are one with it. You are also that beauty. Whatsoever it is, you are. And whatsoever you are, it is. It cannot be any other way because all life is one. That’s what “E Pluribus Unum” means, Out of many, one. The One is made up of all things, as One. So it is time for people to stop playing with themselves, and this notion of I against you. There is no “you” and there is also nobody against you. There is only a WE. And we the people, all the people, want to live together, as a whole, in totality, peacefully and lovingly.

Now, I understand that it’s not everybody’s will to do this. But my business today is with you. If it’s not somebody’s will to live in peace and love, it’s their problem. They will have to deal with that. It’s not your problem. I am appealing to you, who have the will to rise to the occasion, to love your brother and sister, who are willing to lift the society that you live in, to make it better for yourselves and your families. Because this goodness has to begin somewhere, so the way I see it, why not with you! Being happy feels better. Being loving feels better. Try to stop saying things that hurt you, and others. And if you do…ask yourself why? Don’t worry about trifle stuff, or meaningless things. Forget about the future & leave the past in the past. Just be here now. Be spiritual. Give a flower to a person as a sign of peace. Walk softly. Listen carefully…The river is talking to you. Can you hear it? Do things to live more harmoniously with existence, Mother Nature. Try to learn how to be at comfort with each other, because even with all your obvious differences, you really are one. So do not wait for the change…no, don’t ever do that….BE THE CHANGE!!

Namaste to all my brothers & sisters!!! 11-11-11

John McCain

In 2008 when Sen. John McCain was running for president, he was at a small rally where a woman took the microphone and called then Sen. Obama, his opponent, an Arab and a bad man. John McCain quickly took the mic from her, defending Barack Obama as an honorable American and a decent man. I always liked John McCain, and respected his profound service to America, but when he did that, I realized the integrity of that man’s heart. John McCain probably made what will prove to be his last decision today, But I wanted to thank him before he leaves. It’s so rare to see politicians of his stature these days. You see, it is not what a person’s political affiliation is, it is how honorable they are at it. John McCain lived his entire life honorably, in the service of his country, and humankind. And for that, I send this message of gratitude and appreciation to him. dwp

Pain

It has always been curious to me why people give so much of their time and energy trying to avoid pain, when it’s just another fact of life. There is actually nothing to do about pain, which is why it’s so stupid to take pain killers, because pain killers will eventually create a worse pain than the pain you were in, if they don’t kill you first. The truth is that pain is simply a reality, much like pleasure. It always has been. And in the same way that we’d like to keep pleasure in our lives, we must try to do the same with pain, because it is not going away. It is not going to leave us alone, no matter how much we disapprove of it. As contradictory as it might sound, the sooner we come to terms with pain, the sooner our pain will diminish. dwp

Racist Roseanne

In response to Roseanne lowering her Barr, making a very disgusting racist comment which got her #1 rated show immediately cancelled, she tried to blame it on the sleeping pill Ambien. The company that makes the tablet responded to her statement by saying “While all pharmaceuticals have some kind of side effect, racism is not one of them.”
