Saturday Morning — 3 am?

{  Good Morning – This would be my first post here – I must be doing something right – Jim W. has invited me over here to post anything I want to, any time I want to – He doesn’t do that with just anybody — Should I run away screaming? }

Saturday Morning, August 20th, 2016 — 12°C / 53°F & “Dark” in my little corner of Atlantic Canada @ 3:02 am—

Nice sunrise or sunset - might be photoshopped.
“I’m always looking for new ways to see my world. Norman Vincent Peale was not my favourite philosopher. Sometimes he makes sense.” — h.j.d’A — & now I’m quoting myself —

— “Change your thoughts and you change your world.” Norman Vincent Peale.

— Changing habitually resonating thoughts and thought patterns is not all that easy. If you’re fighting against what you believe are your own negative thoughts – you can try to combine those thoughts with the desire to improve and become more positive. Emotions happen quicker and more deeply that what we call “our thoughts” in the human psyche. Our ‘Normal Waking Mind’ tries to define our multi-dimensional world in two dimensional terms. Don’t give up. The negative, “You can’t win-“, “Give up-“, “You’ll never amount to anything-” thoughts that may have been planted in your young mind by egotistical people who don’t know better — are lying to you.  — We have no limitations. We are alive here now to prove to ourselves that “Mind Over Matter” is Reality – Your indomitable Spirit, whatever you choose to call it – can overcome anything. { This has been the voice of experience. I seem to be unusually optimistic about this life and the human race tonight/very early this morning. }

— I read a quote on-line earlier, meant for writers – “If writing your book doesn’t keep you up at night – how can you expect that reading it will keep your readers awake at night, too?” { Or something quite near that if I haven’t remembered it 1,000% correctly – } & I think that was James A. Michener who I’ve just nearly quoted. But I’m pretty sure I got the spirit of his intent there –

Tweet about the plight of sockeye salmon in B.C.
Depressing news about the health of salmon in British Columbia.

— & Now – the depressing stuff. While politicians are fighting against what would be the best for the greatest number of people in favour of their fighting to fill their pockets with currency and their egos with delusions of power – They’re helping the ‘bad guys’ kill the planet and destroy our future.

— Schnarr! —

Native American / First Nations person's photo portrait and an anti-Trump message.
“Hey – You – Trump – Don’t like immigrants? Then get your immigrant butt out of our lands and back to where-ever you came from.”

— I don’t subscribe/follow to all of the above twitter accounts – my friend —djo— does. Some of the not-so-happy stuff he retweeted last night struck a chord – so here they are –

— And Now — For something completely different —>

Aliens in Utah? With English Translation.
“Aliens in Utah?”

A ‘Clairvoyant’ I met told a hippy who recounted seeing weird monsters standing next to people he knew – and he knew they were real live human beings – were not hallucinations. The ‘monsters’ were beings in another dimension, right here beside us – and some of them can influence our thoughts, feelings, even pressure us to go get drunk and pass out so they might jump into our bodies and have fun at our expense. “If this scares you, good. – Stop taking drugs, stop drinking alcoholic beverages, avoid any medicines that make you feel loopy or woozy – Pray a lot and hang around with positive, highly spiritual people.” — I waited until the doubting hippy left and asked that ‘clairvoyant’ where I could find any highly positive, spiritual people to hang around with and she wrote down a couple of book titles, said I should read them, and talk to her next time I saw her.

  • “The Sufis” – by Idries Shah
  • “In Search of the Miraculous” – by P.D. Ouspensky
  • “Autobiography of a Yogi” – by Paramahansa Yogananda

— I treasured all three – Reading Ouspensky’s book was a challenge – I felt like I had to restructure my mind and brain in order to stay with it and understand what he was saying. It felt like an exercise in overcoming normal human limitations.

— I read everything I could get my hands on about the Sufis and felt like they were under-cover agents for sanity in a very insane world.

— Then, reading the “Autobiography of a Yogi” felt like connecting with the ultimately merciful, and loving essence of the Heart of all Creation and made me feel like I was in constant contact with everything worth living for, no matter how strongly I doubted that.

— We’re here to get as close to “God” as we can and to do everything we can to help everything positive in all of Creation manifest Heaven on Earth.

— { Told you I was feeling unusually optimistic – hope I haven’t bored you to death – }
