It’s nice to believe that love will, in the end, triumph over evil and nastiness. However, when looking at our world and situations like the insane slaughter of innocents in the chase for Brother Bin, and the gradual development of the world-wide Police State via techno-fascism, one wonders how the force of good might win, faced as it is by what seems to be insurmountable odds.
Is “love conquers all” just an anthem for dreamers and dippy utopian idealist, or is there a basis to the idea that good will outlast evil?
My old teacher used to say that negative energy moves very quickly and though positive energy is more powerful, it moves very much more slowly. Continue reading →
Many people will say that kindness is a manner which demonstrates itself in proceedings. But what is kindness? It is the quality of being generous, friendly and considerate, to name just a few. Another aspect is that you worry for the feelings of others and that you feel their pain along with them. It is also said that kindness tries to figure out what the situation is and produce a better outcome. Kindness shows empathy and compassion for those who are in pain, and support for those who are attempting to help those who are in need. Being kind is a very important way of giving some significance to our own lives as well as the lives of others who are around us and those that we don’t even know. Being kind also gives us a chance to interact with others better, and also to be a positive force in other people’s lives. Its true source is deep within us, and while some people are naturally kind, it’s something that everyone can develop by applying themselves to learning what it means to be kind and then by actually being kind in different situations.

When it comes to love everyone has a different opinion about what love is and is not. The word “love” refers to different varieties of emotional states, feelings or attitudes which range from those of simple personal pleasures or desires to those characterising interpersonal affection and many forms of profound kindness, compassion, and benevolent concern for the good of others. Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, and it makes the end so easy. What most people would like is to experience more love in life.
The basis of a healthy life today is based on love, every minute, every second; we try to show others how much they mean to us. Though we can’t quantify love we know what it feels like to love and to be loved. Continue reading →
“What is jealousy? It’s the mind’s reaction to a loss of control, or the imagined loss of control. If you don’t have to control, you can’t be jealous, can you? Jealousy is a fascist emotion. In the realm of subtle feeling you will love your partner unconditionally. You won’t try to own them and they won’t try owning you. You will assist them to whatever is best for them in this life, even if that means they move out. Divorce is the result of unresolved control trips. Each hires a good liar and they enter a court that pretends to be interested and the control trip eventually gets sorted out.Continue reading →
John Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his Army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didn’t, the girl with the rose.
His interest in her had begun thirteen months before in a Florida library. Taking a book off the shelf he found himself intrigued, not with the words of the book, but with the notes penciled in the margin. The soft handwriting reflected a thoughtful soul and insightful mind. In the front of the book, he discovered the previous owner’s name, Miss Hollis Maynell.
With time and effort he located her address. She lived in New York City. He wrote her a letter introducing himself and inviting her to correspond. The next day he was shipped overseas for service in World War II. During the next year and one month the two grew to know each other through the mail. Each letter was a seed falling on a fertile heart. A romance was budding. Blanchard requested a photograph, but she refused. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldn’t matter what she looked like.

“To love another person is to see the face of God” ~ Victor Hugo
I love you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate to the world I love you as a reflection of God..
I honour your choices to learn in the way you feel is right for you.
I know it is important that you are the person you want to be and not someone that I or others think you “should” be. I realise that I cannot know what is best for you, although perhaps sometimes I think I do. Continue reading →
