Cut to the Chase
There are places of the heart that awaken the souls of men. They come from which the world is made but are not of this world.
When we remember these places. the…
This and the words BE AS FLOWING WATERS, quiets my mind immediately.

Talk To Your Plants
Now you have got to talk to your plants. Now this is a lullaby for people who talk to their plants.
Good night little house plant asleep on the sill
I'll shut the shades so you don't catch a chill
And tomorrow in the mornin' there'll be breakfest for two
We'll have ham and eggs for me and nitrogen for you
Good night little house plant, tucked in your clay pot
Make sure you don't catch the Huntington's rot
Be careful, little house…
SOMETHING MISSING (A Light in the Attic)
I remember I put on my socks,
I remember I put on my shoes.
I remember I put on my tie
That was printed
In beautiful purples and blues.
I remember I put on my coat,
To look perfectly grand at the dance,
Yet I feel there is something
I may have forgot—
What is it? What is it?...
memories of a small child...or
current events at 72 LOL

SARAH CYNTHIA SYLVIA STOUT
WOULD NOT TAKE THE GARBAGE OUT
Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout
Would not take the garbage out!
She'd scour the pots and scrape the pans,
Candy the yams and spice the hams,
And though her daddy would scream and shout,
She simply would not take the garbage out.
And so it piled up to the ceilings:
Coffee grounds, potato peelings,
Brown bananas, rotten peas,
Chunks of sour cottage cheese.
It filled the…

Put another log on the fire.
Cook me up some bacon and some beans.
And go out to the car and change the tire.
Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans.
Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe
And then go fetch my slippers.
And boil me up another pot of tea.
Then put another log on the fire babe,
And come & tell me why you're leaving me.
Now don't I let you wash the car on Sunday?
And don't I warn you when you're gettin fat?
I promised not to talk about politics, but I can no longer do that. Thanks to recent executive orders signed by the president (not mine however) and laws passed by the gop various laws and rules will be abandoned. To begin with it will no longer be illegal to dump sludge from coal mines into rivers anymore. Animals have been removed from the endangered species list, cruelty to farm animals will resume…Continue

COMIN' AFTER JINNY
He'll be comin' down the road at the break of day
His head thrown back and his guns tied low
He's comin' after Jinny wants to take her away but I ain't gonna let her go
Oh he boasted in town that she loved him he said she'd be his with the sun
He said anyone trying to stop him would be just one more notch on his gun
They say that he's headstrong and handsome his hair's blowin' wild and free
And they got told I ain't comin' cause he's…

Where you don’t know what’s coming next.
To capture the adventure inside the unchanging habitual external, we go to Source of everything, beyond words or form of any sort. A quiet place. It's the fills-up-everything feeling.…Continue

Texas Trilogy By Steve Fromholz
6'oclock silence of a new day beginning
is heard in a small Texas town
Like a signal from nowhere the people who live there
are up and runnin' around
'cause there's bacon to fry and there's biscuits to bake
On a stove that the Salvation Army won't take
And you open the windows and turn on the fan
'cause it's hotter than hell when the sun hits the land
Walter and Fanny well they own the grocery…
There where the mighty mountains bare their fangs unto the moon;
There where the sullen sun-dogs glare in the snow-bright, bitter noon,
And the glacier-gutted streams sweep down at the clarion call of June:
There where the livid tundras keep their tryst with the tranquil snows;
There where the Silences are spawned, and the light of hell-fire flows
Into the bowl of the midnight sky, violet, amber, and rose:
There where the rapids churn and roar, and the ice-floes…

Have you gazed on naked grandeur where there's nothing else to gaze on,
Set pieces and drop-curtain scenes galore,
Big mountains heaved to heaven, which the blinding sunsets blazon,
Black canyons where the rapids rip and roar?
Have you swept the visioned valley with the green stream streaking through it,
Searched the Vastness for a something you have lost?
Have you strung your soul to silence? Then for God's sake go and do it;
Hear the challenge, learn the…

This is the law of the Yukon, and ever she makes it plain:
"Send not your foolish and feeble; send me your strong and your sane.
Strong for the red rage of battle; sane, for I harry them sore;
Send me men girt for the combat, men who are grit to the core;
Swift as the panther in triumph, fierce as the bear in defeat,
Sired of a bulldog parent, steeled in the furnace heat.
Send me the best of your breeding, lend me your chosen ones;
Them will I take to my…

A vision of one sun
There exists a “sun” inside each of us that iluminates the universe.
All the energies come from this sun. In fact we are this sun, each of us. We…

My daughters started watching a new anime. One line of the theme song is "We were born to make history". I like that!! It may seem to be a daunting task to change the history of the whole world. But you can start off by changing your community, someone's day, or your history! Smile at strangers on the sidewalk, say thank you to the sales associate who helped you find the item you needed, pay it forward at the coffee shop, organize or take part in a walk that raises awareness in a cause that…Continue

Our mind enjoys a good movie. And so do we. So it encourages us to play various roles spontaneously throughout the day (if you’re like me).
We usually play it the way we would have liked. Rarely does this happen at first, so we do it over and over 'til we get close.…
This is an ancient document supposedly chiseled in stone by Hermes Trismegist. It uses metaphor to answer questions that many of us have about life. The following is Isaac Newton's translation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_Tablet
Tis true without error, certain & most true.
That which is below is like that which is above & that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only…
Something is going wrong
With the singer and the song
And the music isn't gentle anymore
there's a mist across the moon
And the sun's too hot at noon
And the house is dark behind the broken door
Where the flowers used to grow
