WILL POWER? WHAT’LL WE THINK OF NEXT?

WILL POWER? WHAT’LL WE THINK OF NEXT?

 

I hear much of Will Power. Will and Power do not seem to me to belong together. To exercise one’s Will appears to me to be fear-motivated.

To possess a Will, one must want something.

To want something one must need something.

The God of my understanding is not a needy God.

All Knowing?

All Loving?

Those traits make sense to me. For that reason I do not bow to the Will of a Needy God but to the Love of a Loving God.

Love is powerful. I know of no Higher Power than Love. Do you?

Love heals. Love bonds us together as one. Love never fails though we often fail to Love. Because Love is completely unselfish it is without Will. One who Loves Unconditionally has no reason to impose restraints upon the recipient of that Love in the form of a Will that is alien to the recipient.

God loves me. (Since I believe that God is Love perhaps it is okay to say that Love “Gods” me.)

Will and Power? I don’t think so. Love and Desire?

Sounds right to me, but then what do I know?

How about this; I Accept The Love and I Pass It On?

ART IS ALL THERE IS AND LOVE IS HOW IT CAME TO BE

 

ART IS ALL THERE IS AND LOVE IS HOW IT CAME TO BE

Everything in the Universe is made from the crumbs of something else.

Surely, this is the first rule of Creativity and Creativity must certainly be the first consideration in defining art.

And for those of us who have lived this Creative Experience, whether it be to suddenly hear the first words in a poem on its way into our reality or becoming aware of a business idea rising to the surface or perhaps caressing a piece of unfettered marble and feeling the sculpture hidden among its veins or Miracle of Miracles, helping to form a new person, whether by fertilizing an egg or stumbling through the agonizing pile of paperwork and interviews to adopt a child, the feeling that accompanies such Creative Endeavors is called Love.

THE POWERS OF LOVE AND WILL

THE POWERS OF LOVE AND WILL

Human power is will power. .
God Power is Love.

Love is the Greatest Power of all.

Love Heals.
Love Forgives.
Love Perfects.

Human power is will power.
Will is born of NEED.

Our need is for safety.

Our first gift at birth is Fear.
Love is the only gift greater than Fear.

I Accept God’s Love; It is unconditional.
I Accept God’s Love; it is forgiving.
I Accept God’s Love;It is healing.

I accept The Love and I pass it on.

 

 

 

TIME WELL SPENT

 

I sit at my desk eight hours a day and sometimes ten or twelve.  I  usually take a break at the arrival of hour number three, do twenty reps of a handful of upper-body exercises or go for a brisk, short walk and return to my desk. But, before creating another sentence I visit  youtube and search through one of many favorite topics, one of which is the subject of “time” as studied and perceived by Nova scientist and their ilk. And though not very practical from a personal point of view I often run across an idea for one of several blogs.

If you are noticing the unpleasantness of aging however, perhaps you have noticed that time is speeding up.

I can help you with that.

I have a more practical approach to time mechanics and here it is. We do NOT age more quickly nor do we think so as we live each passing minute. Notice as you go through your day that time is not whizzing by at all; it is the MEMORY of the experience that is misleading us.

Solution: DO MORE – THINK LESS..

The memory of time is not of real-time experience but rather a percentage of life lived as compared to similar percentages remembered from years ago.

By the way: One can acquire quite an education on you tube and Ted talks. Google searches by the way are getting downright cumbersome; perhaps we can get our heads together and come up with something better.

Have another great day (and forget about it).

 

RESIGNING OURSELVES TO GROWTH

RESIGNING OURSELVES TO GROWTH

Notice how the word resignation morphed from “I quit” to “I accept”.

Q:     How does one get from a frown to a shrug of the shoulders?
From  ambivalence to certainty and back?

A:      By playing follow the leader; that’s how. Preoccupation with what-to-think is the mantra of the mellow, the emotionally bereft. It takes courage to focus on “how to think” but those who do so grow stronger.

Throw away the rule book and buy a copy of Aristotle’s Analytics.

Share your discoveries on typepad.com;  later, on TED-TALKS.

 

 

 

 

NOW YA SEE IT – NOW YA DON’T

NOW YA SEE IT – NOW YA DON’T
(A conversation between Xero Aticus
and the Psychedelic Toad.)
Lee Broom

 

Psycho:  Hey there Xero, what alleys have you explored today?

Xero:   Oh, hi Psycho. I got my feelings hurt.

Psycho: Was it something you said…again?

Xero:   Probably.

Psycho: Sooo…

Xero :  Well I was in a conversation about God and I mentioned that                   God has no will and offered evidence thereof.

Psycho:  That must have gone over well. Or perhaps I should say like                      you  order your steak? Burned to a crisp.

Xero:   I’m a vegan.

Psycho:  You have spinach on your incisor.  Okay, so who nailed ya?

Xero:    Magic man, okay?

Psycho:  Shoulda seen that coming. When in Rome…you silly man.

Xero:    I know, I know. But it took me 36 years of at least 2000                                words a day and hundreds of thousands of hours of                                        research to discover these awarenesses.  His remark was                         simply to   quote the  opinion of a very large group.

Psycho: So, why do you go to this meeting every week; you have no                         support for your love of research?

Xero:  I go because I helped start this group. I go because I have                           friends there whom I have known for decades. I want to be                       around friends.

Xero: So start a new group. A discussion group for thinkers, artist,                   scientists. Make more friends.

Xero: I like being around religious folks; they’re nicer.

Psycho: More tolerant, don’tcha mean?

Xero:  I suppose. .

Psycho: Then how about presenting only your view; leave out the                           discovery part.

Xero: I guess so. Yeah I can do that. I still say that this idea of God                        having a will is inane. A will is a condition, after all.

Psycho: Nice start Ab. Why is this so important to ya?

Xero: Aren’t you the guy who’s always saying “Never ask why”?

Psycho: Nope. You’re the guy who’s always saying “Never ask why”.

Xero: Oh…yeah…okay…see ya.

Psycho: No ya don’t. What did Magic Man say, anyway?

Xero: He said that God’s will is Love and to pass it on..

Psycho: Sounds  right to me.

Xero: Ya think?

Psycho:  I think.

Xero: See ya.

Psycho: See ya.
