God will not take from us what we will not release to Him... On the morning of Nov 28th, I woke to the barely audible sound of this song playing on my phone. The earbuds were plugged into the phone, but not in my ears, so I couldn't quite make out what song was playing. I reached for and put one to my ear while thinking: "since my phone was not within reach, how did the song start playing, and when?Hours before? or moments? was this the first one? Did it matter? No? I carried the feeling with me for a little while, but then forgot about, even though it had been quite a powerful feeling. THIS morning when I opened my computer to work on my next blog post, I was nudged to notice that Billy Gilman's most recent performance on The Voice, while not this song, was an equally powerful Martina McBride song: "Anyway". My point? Absolutely everything is interconnected in a powerfully woven mosaic. We need but to open our eyes to the miracle of life in each moment of each day: God's Will by Martina McBride video here

Zeno's paradoxes

In Thanksgiving 2016

Bring the two wings of seeing what's going on and holding it with kindness in the light of awareness together
Cranberry Sauce with Orange and Ginger - and figs!
Deepen the look at how we wake up from trance
Each of us has been imbued with an Internal Teacher, a guide who's been authorized by God to pave the path home for us when we're lost in the pain of worldly illusion" (48). ~ Marianne Williamson's Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment 
"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul." ~ Judy Garland
Great idea from Tara Talk: "Attend and befriend. See truly and hold kindly."
Hold in kindness these "Two Wings" that are Happening

Judgement distorts the scene and you see only the old associations that lead you to the same false conclusions
This flurry of snow thoughts
inside my mind-globe is continuous
no room for sunlight, warmth, peace.
I’m stuck inside a pattern I can’t control
unless I see the woman trapped inside
and the one holding the globe--
the choice to shake it up again
or cradle the scene in her hands,
till all the cold flakes have settled
and quiet serenity abounds.

Line going through big circle of awareness - metaphor - Joseph Campbell - part of Tara Brach's talk
"...My hair is being pulled by the stars again." ~  Ana├»s Nin, Fire: From "A Journal of Love"
"Open all your pores and bathe in all the tides of nature, in all her streams and oceans, at all seasons."  ~ Henry David Thoreau
"Paradoxical, supremely difficult threshold-crossing of the hero's return from the mystic realm into the land of common day. Whether rescued from without, driven from within, or gently carried along by the guiding divinities, he has yet to re-enter with his boon the long-forgotten atmosphere where men who are fractions imagine themselves to be complete. He has yet to confront society with his ego-shattering, life-redeeming elixir, and take the return blow of reasonable queries, hard resentment, and good people at a loss to comprehend." ~ Joseph Campbell
"Quite? you don't say Quite" ~ Gilmore Girls - late to the party, but I arrived
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." ~ Albert Einstein
The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be. ~Shakti Gawain
Ultimate truth of who we are: we are beings of a world more real than this one; it is the world beyond the veil. The spiritual world is a Universe of love and love only, where nothing but eternal peace and harmony exist" (56).
Vast Veil of illusion, created by the ego not to illuminate, but to hide, the world that lies beyond it" (55). ~ Marianne Williamson's Tears to Triumph
