I consider myself as a simple kind of guy. Even tho I try to understand just how everything works and how to get past all the illusions of this earthly life I try to just keep it as simple as possible.If you are a regular reader of this blog you should know that my intent is to try and share the love with all of us human beings.That in itself sounds simple enough but trying to reach others who have a different way of seeing things can still be rather complex or so it seems.On this blog I have made many friends who I really cherish the friendship.At times there have been readers who disagreed vehemently with my views(which is quite ok by me). Some have said I am an arrogant person which I dont really think is true but then again I suppose it depends on which view you are looking from. But the reason for todays entry is not to try and figure things out or to disagree or agree with anyone else.The point I would like to make is that I feel no matter what the "real" truth is I am gonna remain a simple person doing the best I can to love everyone one and everything.I have made some friends here who have their own blogs and they are filled with much truth wisdom and insight concerning this worlds illusions.I must admit I dont quite understand all the things I read but I have found the blogs quite amazing. They get me to thinking and to asking questions which in turn helps me to become more "awake" and aware of what is going on.There are just so many theories and beliefs out there that it can make one's head spin quite a bit.To you readers who are looking to find enlightenment may I suggest you check out some of the blogs that are listed as ones I follow.Those folks are lots smarter than me and can maybe help shed some light on things for you better than I can. As for me I will continue to write as the inspiration comes to me.And I will continue to try my best to keep it all simple.As I see it no matter what one may believe as far as to what is real or what is an illusion it will remain dependant upon one's own personal beliefs.To me keeping it simple is to look at things in a way which will serve to bring more love into this world.I feel the only thing any of us do have is this 1 eternal moment and no matter what conditions we find ourselves in if we will all take this 1 moment and send love and goodness to as many people as we can then the rest of it will surely take care of itself. This is why I try to remind all of you to do something nice for someone right now so that we can work together to help make this planet a better place for all of us.I dont care what "group" you belong to, what race you are (aren't we all humans) what political party you subscribe to or any thing else. I do however would love to see all of you join me in trying to make this a better world for all.Thank you for visiting my blog, for sharing your thoughts with us, and for accepting me as I am.And please, if you can take the next few moments and do something nice for someone. It doesnt have to be anything of a great nature, maybe just call an old friend who you know would love to hear from you again, or open a door for someone at the store, or just smile warmly at the next person you see. Tell someone you love them, help your mate out with some of the chores,etc I could go on forever cause it really is unlimited the things you can do for someone and most doesnt cost you a dime. Just a second of your valuable time. Please try that if you can and I think you will find it helps you to feel better not only about yourself but also about humanity.I leave you now with thoughts of love, peace, and inner contentment.May all of you have a most wonderful evening.Thank you for listening."HUGS"

One of my favorite authors Ralph Waldo Emerson sure had a way of stating things in simple terms that should be easy for us to comprehend.I have always been amazed by the wisdom that this man shared with all who would but take time to listen.I wanted to share this quote from him with you today.Mr Emerson stated:"Shallow men believe in luck, they believe in circumstances....Strong men believe in cause and effect." Dealing with cause and effect is like trying to cure an ailment's symptons (that would be the effects or conditions) and not curing the underlying cause of the ailment by going to the root cause and finding out how to eliminate the root cause.We as humans often times are just happy allievating the symptons with drugs or any other treatment that will do the job. However when we do that we are still left with the "inner" or "root" cause of the problem and usually the same problem will continue to crop up from time to time. If we are to completely "heal" ourselves I believe we need to work from the inside to the outside.By that I mean trying to figure out the oft times buried reason for the ailment by doing our "inner" or spiritual work.Thus by discovering the "real" reason for that ailment we can then rid ourselves of it permanantly.The Science of Mind textbook has stated the following which I agree with wholeheartedly: "Just so far as we depend upon any condition, past, present, or future, we are creating chaos, because we are then dealing with conditions (effects) and not with causes." So in closing I will wish for all of you beautiful people a ton of happiness, good health,and all good things.May the "ailments" you have be few and far between, and may you quickly learn to be able to discover the root causes, so that you can keep your life filled with inner peace.Again may I remind you to try right now to do something nice for someone whether its a phone call to an old friend, a special hug to someone you love, a warm smile to the "stranger" you pass on the street, or anything else you may imagine.That way when you are retiring for the night, you can look back and see that today you have indeed done a great service in helping all of us humans to see that truly all we do need is love."HUGS" to all.

And on and on I go I just keep on rolling with the flow". Those words from an old Charlie Rich song says a lot to me. I have always tried my best to just take things as they come, try to learn from them. and then just let it go.Those times when I fail to do that is the times when life seems to be in quite a disarray.I often have to remind myself to just experience things instead of always reacting to them. When I can remember to do that then life seems to just go along in rhythm and I find myself at peace with things.My hope is that all of you wonderful folks have learned how to just "be" without expecting things to always come out the way you had envisioned them. If you have then I am sure your life is one that is peaceful and flows gently each moment. If not then I hope you will soon learn the art of just "being" in the one eternal moment. I will leave you with a quote from Epictetus who once stated"Seek not that the things which happen should happen as you wish; but wish the things which happen to be as they are, and you will have a tranquil flow of life." I leave you with thoughts of pure love, peace, and joy to you and yours.And may I remind you to try and do something nice for another person just because you wish to be a part of the solution! "HUGS" to all

I love the following quote from Herm Albright:"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort." I love it! Also I say to keep on smiling and people will wonder what you are up to. I leave all of you with thoughts of love, peace, and joy.

I honestly believe all of us human beings have within us the innate seed to blossom into a loving, kind, caring, and warm person.Why some never seem to realize this or to even begin to develop into this type of human being is a little beyond my explanation.Those who are sociopaths and believe that they "deserve" everything they desire just because they are here is beyond even my wildest imagination.But whatever the reasons I still believe most of us can and should learn to develop our abilities and try our best to rediscover the inner beauty that resides within us at all times.For those of you who think you have nothing special inside to share with others, I'd like to share this thought from Swami Chetanananda:"Think of a tree, or any living event that emerges from within itself. It is the degree to which it obeys its inner commitment to unfold a certain pattern that enables it to overcome all of the resistance and the obstacles in the environment, and to demostrate itself as a vast and vital manifestion of the energy of Life." Taking this as fact should enable one to "remember" who they really are inside no matter what the outside appearances seem to indicate. My hope is that each of us can dig down and again become "one" with our inner self and start from there to become a better human being.And as you go about your day how about doing something nice for someone just because you wish to be a part of life's solutions. I bless you all good people and send warm thoughts of love and best wishes to you and yours now and always.
