Does Time Heal all Wounds? What Wounds and What is Time?

Galactic Pyrotechnics

Galactic Pyrotechnics

April is here.
I am here.
You are here.
So – what time is it where you are?
What’s the universal time?

What is the deal with time?

Specifically, the phrase, “Time heals all wounds.” This is one of those phrases that, I believe, is responsible for the disempowering effects that our language has produced.

Character Differences and Religious Beliefs Should Not Divide Us.

Within the last couple of years, I have come to fully understand that you and I are connected in ways beyond our comprehension.

It’s so beautiful and so mysterious — it’s what gives life that magic feeling.

You and I are working together subconsciously — all the time.

What that work is, I can’t say for sure but, I do know we have a common purpose.
I wish I could explain it. It would make things easier, wouldn’t it? But, as you and I both know — we aren’t meant to fully understand it. Not yet.

Day 10. One-third of the way through this 31-day challenge. It’s been a lot of fun doing this. Thank you, Jeff Goins, for pushing me beyond my normal limits with the blog content.

Last night we discussed observing our thoughts. More specifically, observing from the left ear bleachers. Obviously, the bleachers are a metaphor. You can make it a La-z-boy or a lawn chair if you’d like. The type of furniture is irrelevant. The point of that metaphor is the location.

Nature is the Answer. Always Has Been – Always Will Be.

Jack Herer, also known as ‘The Hemperor,’ offered a $100,000 challenge to the world to prove him wrong.

The Challenge: $100,000

If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; Then there is only one known annually renewable resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial, and home energy needs – while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time…And that substance is – the same one that did it all before – Cannabis Hemp – Marijuana.

Sponsored by: H.E.M.P. (America), HANF HAUS (Germany), SENSI SEEDS/HASH MARIJUANA MUSEUM (Holland), and T.H.C., THE TEXAS HEMP CAMPAIGN (America) Visit Jack Herer’s website for more details:

If you can prove him wrong, you will be $100,000 richer. (Jack Herer – June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010) Rest in peace, Sir. Your work and dedication will forever be admired by millions.

 

The reason Jack put such a large sum of money up in this challenge is because it’s impossible to prove him wrong – because he’s right. Each of the examples he gives in this challenge can be broken down into many subsections.

You Are a Genius – So Am I and So Are We – They Are Too.

wallhaven-181481-1080x1920

What is 1+2? What is the value of 1? What is the value of 2? If we take the value of 1 and add it to the value of 2, what is the outcome? Given what we have learned throughout our lives, the value we get is 3. Now, my question is this – Do you accept that?

Is there any part of your mind that has a desire to question it or are you 100% sold on 1+2=3? If you do have, even a slight hesitation to accept it, then you’re on the right track.

Where Did I Leave That Skeleton Key?

wpid-img_20150222_101824.jpg

When a river floods due to an excess of rain, there is water on surrounding land that ultimately becomes a disruption for many creatures – as well as the lake itself. Life in these areas must now quickly adapt to this change or seek shelter until the water subsides – which, in turn, delays their life work. Even if it’s only a few hours.

If you pour a glass of lemonade into a cup and continue pouring after it has reached the brim, there will be lemonade all over the kitchen counter. This is a less severe “flooding” example.  Now your main focus, instead of drinking a delicious glass of lemonade, is trying to remember where you put the paper towels. Who wants to clean when there is a glass of lemonade screaming “Drink me!?” Not me.

These 2 lessons are different in nature but offer the same lesson in life.

Mind, Body, and Writing – The Essential Triangle.

sunsetI’ve spent a considerable amount of time reading lately. Reading about writing. Blog posts, articles, books, etc.

Last week I had a short-lived, moderate anxiety spell. I know why it happened – in fact, I knew why, as it was happening. This fact didn’t stop it from occurring though. I believe it was part of the process to understanding balance. I was in an all-out sprint for well over 2 weeks.
