It isn’t Black or White… conflict divides us more than that. It’s about conflict resolution. Obama may have been oblivious to most of us… but Trump wants to divide us and conquer us. He isn’t a politician. He’s a fascist. Given four more years Trump will take America in the wrong direction so far into suffering, we won’t even recognize what is consensus building. Obama wanted consensus and he was unable or unwilling to do the right things to get it. His mistakes invited the far right into action. They began to look for leaders that can feed their apocalyptic anger.
Let’s not forget Obama failed us… because we don’t want his vision taking us deeper into this divide. BUT most importantly for right now… we must remove Trump… vote Biden / Harris. Four years of Trump has made the world less safe, and the damage to our country and the world might be irreversible.
We’ve seen hundreds of well-known Republicans came out against Trump… and… yet, Trump is competitive. Our people are confused and caught up in conflict. Yet, ask them to look at their bias and most will instantly fall back on their prejudices. Trump is what Obama invited into politics.
The Establishment is no more. It’s time to Build Back Better.
The only reality is mind and observations, but observations are not of things. To see the Universe as it really is, we must abandon our tendency to conceptualize observations as things. .
So, statements tend to be true and yet, we tend to be misled since we cannot let go of the need to imagine anything as an object. FOR EXAMPLE, reality is immediately associated with all of the objects we recall as being reality and we are done with and cannot remotely comprehend the next quote even before we can read it: .
“A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a ‘mental’ construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: ‘The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.’” – R.C. Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University, “The Mental Universe”; Nature (436:29,2005) .

No, be still and contemplate. The new physics, QBism offers a way to put yourself in the picture. Personally, I choose to believe that I can make my own reality if only I can remove from me the conditioning of this culture.
. Ought we believe that a chance as a probability is actually completely determined? For instance that any particular chance really is on a “bell curve” of “normal distribution” of random outcomes… that in fact there is no real chance occurrence.This seems so consistent that once educated, most believe there is underlying deterministic law governing individual occurrences of an event.
So, chance is regarded as inconsistent with causal determinism and with physical or mechanical determinism.
In his lecture at Zurich in 1922, Erwin Schrödinger argued that the evidence did not justify our assumptions that physical laws were deterministic and…
Every day you have to make decisions. Some are no big deal and you hardly give them a thought, but some are in the problems to solve category and no matter how hard you try, you are never satisfied with your decision–even to the degree of regret! Just do your best. That’s right, doing your best at all times is the only thing you can do, and it’s what you strive to do whether you realize it or not. Sometimes your best will be your absolute WORST, but that’s okay because at the time, it was the best you could do.
Now, all of this probably sounds like a copout but it’s not. Just think about it. Today you might feel differently about a problem you had yesterday or a week ago. Because of that the decision you made in the past may not be the same as the one…
Have you ever wondered why someone people seem to struggle through life while others breeze through it? Have you ever compared yourself to someone in a similar situation and wondered why they seem so content while your frustrations are escalating to an all time high? Sometimes it all comes down to perspective. Luckily, you can change your perspective.
Albert Ellis was a successful American psychologist and psychotherapist. As part of his work Ellis identified twelve irrational ideas that he called ‘The Dirty Dozen’. He believe that these commonly held ideas can unnecessarily contribute to difficulties in life.
I have listed the dirty dozen below; have a read through them, you might be surprised at how many you can relate to. If you identify with any of them, ask yourself:

The circadian rhythm is often referred to as the clock of the body. It is a control center of the human brain which is also known as the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). It is a 24-hour cycle which regulates the body’s sleep. External stimuli such as variations in sunlight and temperature can easily affect the rhythm of this clock.
When there is serious disruption to the circadian rhythm significant adverse effects can occur in the person’s sleeping and eating disorders, culminating into negative health outcomes. Chronic disruption of the circadian rhythm can be a risk factor for development of cardiovascular diseases, obesity and neurological problems such as depression or bipolar disorders as well as cognitive problems.
In order to keep it synchronized, the circadian clock is said to be dependent upon visual cues of light and darkness which are communicated to the body via our eyes to the suprachiasmatic nucleus.
Meals and exercise regimens are other cues, which are reported to have the potential to influence the circadian clock.
When a person experiences trouble falling asleep or maintaining sleep or if they tend to wake up too early or have difficulty going back to sleep they are said to have circadian rhythm disorder.
Other specific circadian rhythm sleep-related problems include delayed sleep phase disorder (DSP). People with this problem tend to stay awake until around 1:00 am and 2:00 am, and wake up later in the morning. Often this is more prevalent among young adults. The advanced sleep phase disorder (ASP) which is more common among people advanced in age happens when people tend to go to bed early; between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm and wake up equally early.
Circadian rhythm is the reason why people get jet lag because the rhythm of their body clock is disrupted or misaligned by finding themselves suddenly in a different time zone. The more time zones they cross the more severe the problem. The rate of recovery is slower in older individuals than in younger people.
Shift work can also disrupt the circadian rhythm particularly if it includes night shift. The situation can be exacerbated by susceptibility or the presence of disorders such as sleep apnea and psychiatric problems.
The National Health, Lung, and Blood Institute claims that sleep is has a critical role as far as maintaining good health is concerned throughout one’s life. Getting regular and quality sleep can protect your mental health as well as physical health. During sleeping hours your body is busy supporting healthy brain function and maintaining physical health because it is during sleep that the brain begins to prepare pathways that help you learn, grasp and remember new information the next day. That is why some studies claim that quality sleep improves learning. Sleep is also critical for development and growth in young children and teenagers.
At creation God established rhythms which were to control the earth. For example, He established the rhythm of light and darkness even before he created human beings or other forms of life. Scientists have discovered that both light and darkness are necessary for life for they both let our bodies know when it is time to secrete certain hormones necessary for functional equilibrium and homeostasis. In Psalm 127:2 the Bible treats sleep as a gift from God and it is usually during sleep that the body rests and is rejuvenated.

Do you know that God is more interested in your health than you could ever be?
The Bible is full of holistic principles and guidelines, which, if applied consistently, can prevent disease and promote optimum health. Preventive measures are often less costly than curative therapies, and these principles can be applied at individual, family, and community levels.
The human body is a fearful and wonderful machine, capable of performing incredible functions. God has stamped his own image on it. How absurd it is then to look elsewhere other than to the omnipotent and omniscient Manufacturer of the human body for guidelines regarding its well-being and health?
Far from being an obsolete and archaic document saturated with myths and superstition, the Bible is a rich repository, an inexhaustible mine, of counsel for all facets of life, including health and longevity.
Explore the time-tested, efficacious principles that are foundational for disease prevention, health enhancement, and long life straight from the creator of our bodies himself with “The Perfect Prescription.”
God: bestows the gifts; wants us to use them wisely…
2 Corinthians 5:20 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God”.
In the process of life many things can occur in a person’s life; in actuality, each moment brings about an occasion where things will and can happen if you allow it and then you have to deal with the repercussions.
The most important aspect that is disturbed is your relationship with God; for if this is disturbed, nothing will seem to be right or in place until it is back in the right place.
Ceaseless sin can cause us to lose our badge of honor or our place in life with Jesus; and I know many of us have been in that place where we seek to be restored, yet we are faced with hindrances; this can be dealt with by the love and ministration of Jesus Christ.
As an ambassador of Christ, seek his constant and daily renewing and refreshing; let there be nothing between you and the relationship.
Be reconciled to His glory, His love, his covering.
All about Jesus….Love God and the things pertaining to Him. Love sitting at the feet of Jesus!
Jesus — we will not forget
who you are
and what you’ve done for us.
“Where You Go I Go”
Where You go I go What You say I say What You pray I pray What You pray I pray
Jesus only did what He saw You do He would only say what he heard You speak He would only move when He felt You lead Following Your heart, following Your spirit How could I expect to walk without You When every move that Jesus made was in surrender
I will not begin to live without You For You alone are worthy, You are always good You are always good
Where You go I go What You say I say God What You pray I pray What You pray I pray Though the world sees and soon forgets We will not forget who you are And what you’ve done for us, what you’ve done for us
And no matter if it was successful, pleasant, meaningful, bad or wasted, it is gone.
Now that you look back maybe you find many things that you would have done differently, many more that you wanted to have done, and many others you regret doing.
But let’s face it, what’s done is done and you can’t change it. There are, however, a few things you can do now (yes, now, in the very end of the year) that can make you look at things from another perspective. That will help you make piece with your past, which will soon be in 2013, and welcome the next year.
1. Accept 2013 with all its ups and downs.
Everything that happened was meant to, and even when you failed and made the wrong choice, you were moving forward by knowing what not to do next time and by…
Willow, a one day old baby Giraffe with its mother.

I had no intention of writing today, but coming upon this story and the petition that accompanied it, changed that in a heartbeat.
For as long as I can remember, the Giraffe has been the object of my affection and admiration.
There is something so regal, so fragile, so graceful, so endearing about them, how could you not love them.
In my lifetime, I have, with little shame, amassed a collection of Giraffes in every form, all manner of clothing, toys for my children and my dogs of course, stationary, Christmas cards, birthday cakes, Giraffes made of paper, wood, copper, bisque, brass, you name it, if it is a Giraffe anything, I have it.
In my defense, many of the above were gifts, as my love of this animal was well-known.
