Power of Kindness 14 y
Just like that baby, when loving human contact is
missing, we each, in our own way, make our plaintive cries in the
darkness of our loneliness.
”A woman I know, let’s call her Dorothea, tells me another story.
Every evening she hears her neighbors’ baby girl crying in the
apartment next to hers. The parents put the child to sleep alone in
the dark. The baby cries for a long time while the parents watch
television. The baby’s desperate crying expresses all her anguish,
her solitude. What should Dorothea do? She is uncertain. Speaking
to the parents might makes things worse. She decides to sing. Just
as she can hear the baby, the baby can hear her. Every evening when
they put the baby to bed, Dorothea sings her sweet lulla ... read more

Never Stop Learning
by Andy Rooney
I’ve learned... that the best classroom in the world is
at the feet of an elderly person.
I’ve learned... that when you’re in love, it shows.
I’ve learned... that just one person saying to me,
”You’ve made my day!” makes my day
I’ve learned... that I feel better about myself when I
make others feel better about themselves.
I’ve learned... that having a child fall asleep in your
arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
I’ve learned... that what we have done for ourselves
alone dies with us. What we have done for ot ... read more
Grief-Loss 14 y
Grieving and healing the loss
by Ellen A Mogensen
When we grieve for another, what we are really mourning is the loss of
them from our lives.
Part of life on Earth is losing those we love along the way. Time will
take the sharp edge off the pain but it is not guaranteed to release our
need to grieve. If you are finding it hard to let go of your grief, one
of three things is likely standing in the way of you releasing it... so
that you can move past the pain and into the beauty of love.
* Completeness: Mourning is most often prolonged because we lack the
feeling of being complete with our loved one. Pe ... read more

Our driver grinned as she slide into the driver’s seat and said
she could hardly wait for school to begin. Turns out she’s a school
bus driver and with her seniority, she gets to pick her route. Her

”I just love ’em,” she grinned. ”I get them again this year.”
Fascinating. Sincere. And difficult.

Connect with Source 14 y
We each have our own personal portal to the security, love, money and health we desire.
by Keith Varnum
Daily stress getting to you? Want more peace and joy in your life? With terrorism, layoffs and pollution, can you feel safe and happy? Yes, you can—by tapping into Divine Source.
During many years of observing others and myself searching for fulfillment, I’ve noticed an essential ingredient is often missing. I call this ingredient Direct Connection with Source, or God. Without this quality in its authentic form, no folks I know have been able to achieve the contentment they’re seeking.

Existence 14 y
What is the purpose of our existence?
Question: ”Why am I here?” - Answer: ”To learn how to be and become love.”
At some point in our journey as Soul, we ask ourselves ”why am I here?” The answers to both questions are one in the same. ”You are here to grow in your ability to love.”
What we learn through our wanderings in the universe is simply this. Life
is a choice: learn to choose love in every moment. This is far easier said
than done. Think about what it means to choose love in every moment.
It means ”don’t cut that car off in traffic”, ”don’t scream at your kids
when you’ve had a rotten day”, ”don’t gossip ab ... read more

Einstein's Spirituality 14 y
A quotation from Albert Einstein's letters
”A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ’universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” visit the page
For singles 14 y
For everyone looking for their soulmate, looking to find their true love, and also for those already married. Long but easy to read.
From Rabbi Green’s presentation
The issues here are actually pretty simple and they’re fundamental. If you turn on the radio and you listen, you’ll always find the same subject again and again. 99.9% of all the songs in the whole world are about one thing. They’re about love. And the reason is because every single creature in the world is looking for it. It’s a feeling. You can run away, you can try and escape, you can use other language. But those are the facts. When was the last time you heard a song about a duck on the radio, or ... read more

Dance 14 y
I love dancing--latin (salsa, merengue) and ballroom (waltz, tango). It is the best and easiest way to express my true Self. It never fails to bring my innermost being to the light--it is as if all the chains of the world fall off.
And sharing this self expression with the person I am dancing with makes it a divine experience.
Creation is linked to Dance - the movement of the Soul - as it blends sound, light, and color in rhythmic patters of geometry that opens our souls and allow us to flow into other places where we are the creators.
Dancing as a way of releasing, healing and connecting with each other and our divine source dates back tens of thousands of years, and can be found in thousands of cultures the world over.
We are energy beings. Our feelings and emotions are energy, and as energy they are meant to move. Dance is a perfect way to vibrate and move this e ... read more
Humans Need Touch 14 y
I am posting this article at 2 a.m. after coming back from a night of *wonderful* salsa dancing and realizing just how great my body feels after all that human touch and close dancing!
Go learn the salsa and merengue people :)
Aside from being your gateway to touch and a great place to hang your clothes, your skin is also your largest organ. No one is exempt from needing to be touched. Humans need to touch and be touched, just like we need food and water. The connection between touch and well being is far more than skin deep. From the moment of birth our tactile sense is being stimulated. Pushed out, picked up, and slapped on the bottom, we are placed at our mother’s breast, and a bonding process begins.
The need for bonding, or close physical contact with another human being, remains with us throughout o ... read more
The Universal Laws 14 y
The Universal Laws as described by Abraham (from the Abraham-Hicks materials at http://www.abraham-teachings.com)
You are a Physical Extension of that which is Non-physical. All-That-Is, or God, is not finished and waiting for you to catch up. You are the leading edge of thought, here seeking more: more of all that feels good to you, more of that which is fresh and gloriously uplifting. (You are, in essence, bringing heaven to earth.) You are here in this body because you chose to be here. You wanted the opportunity to experience this delicious contrast in time and space, and with great anticipation you came to co-create with other joy-seeking beings, to fine-tune the process of deliberate thought. ... read more
More Abraham 14 y
Abraham on Vibration, Emotions, and Creation
The Universe does not know if the vibration you are offering is because of what you are imagining, or because of what you are observing. In either case, it is responding. Emotion is your guidance or your response to your vibration. Your emotion does not create. Emotion is your indicator of what you are already creating. As you think, you vibrate. And it is your vibrational offering that equals your point of attraction. So, what you are thinking and what is coming back to you is always a vibrational match. The emotion (your Guidance System) is telling you what’s coming.

Words of wisdom
You will come back lifetime after lifetime—not because there are some rungs on a ladder that you must climb (not because there is some hierarchy that you are hoping to achieve; not because you are wanting to achieve some sort of perfection and then never come back again) but for the joy of it! You are creators who love creating! And there is no place anywhere, any time, that is more delicious than this time/space reality in which you are focused. The contrast is so prevalent; the variety is so amazing. Your ability to focus has never been better. And now, you are remembering who-you-are an ... read more

On a summer day, longtime youth worker John Bell was walking down the street when he saw a boy fall off his bicycle and skin his knee. The boy grimaced in pain as he clutched his knee, but he didn’t make a sound. Bell knelt down, pointed to the boy’s knee and said, “That must hurt!” The boy screamed, “Yes, it really hurts!” and burst into tears.
Bell sat next to the boy as he continued to sob. Eventually, the boy began pointing to scars on his body and telling how he got them. “It was ... read more
