Some days feel like - Ol’ Mother Hubbard going to the cupboard to get her poor dog a bone. And when she gets there, it’s empty and bare…Boo Hoo… Who?
Other days are plentiful, filled with melodic delight. HAHA’s ringing out loud, even on a rainy night.
On this day I have to say, my tummy’s filled with chocolatey chews, my heart overflows with a hope-filled brew.
So I decided to engage my inflamed Muse, spreading giggles to all… via Happy News.
Please lend an ear… drop the fear. Yes…I am speaking directly to you. If you describe yourself as a worn-out shoe, your favorite pastime singing the blues. Squeezed into a box of broken dreams, dwelling on forget-me-nots and loser’s schemes.
I am here waving my fairy dust, a brew of Happy’s… delivering lust. Not of the usual kind… a kindred spirit, ala Rumi… blowing your mind.
In an instant you’ll see, LOVE invisible, eternally. Rejoice at what is there you, whether confusing moments, or pangs of pain – Dwell in Light Beams calling your name.
The mystical Heart mixes each day with jolly, folly - Borrowing a bone, celebrating not being alone. Reaching into a bag of tricks, harvesting gratitude with joy and wit. Inhale this Muse’s Fairy Lust… bestowed bold and true. Magically swirling amidst life’s dust… LOVE devouring YOU

Children are natural Zen masters – they live in the moment, enraptured in wonderment. Along the way, as you grow older the sense of curiosity dims, and the remembrance of Freedom to BE diminishes. Rules and regulations reign and stifle natural impulses to explore, to communicate with nature, to tap your feet and dance in the sunlight.
In school you sit at a tiny desk, trapped in a chair, relegated to silence. All for the sake of not disturbing anyone. If only you could stand up for a moment, focusing would be easier, and fidgeting and tapping your pencil would cease. Then maybe the teacher would stop picking on you, embarrassing you, giving other children the license to bully and shame you.
Who made up the bogus label ADHD anyway? It’s unfathomable that Meds are a solution, a cocktail of poison that makes you tired, sluggish. Condemned to flatlining hell, disconnected from feelings of being happy for no reason. How could this happen? How could being enraptured in the moment and responding naturally be sanctioned as aberrant, and so terribly abnormal? (more…)
How often do you check the time? Are you waiting for something to happen, are you bored, afraid of being late, habitually attached to the day passing by? What is driving your impulse…to get it all done, or is it a new age digital addiction… hmmm.
The theory that time is on your side and you have all the time in the world is a myth. In the time-space continuum time is relative. Yet we measure the concept of time by the earth’s orbital relationship to the sun. Morning, noon, and night are different aspects of time, and the structure, the choice of how to spend our hours, days are influenced by our basic needs to collaborate as a society. To work together to supply survival first and then to manufacture consumptive needs, perpetuating a valueless, materialistic, greed machine. This system breeds have’s and have not’s. It is a time-warp prison environment, where we behave like ants, herded, automated to serve the queendom, with no respect or sense of individuality, true purpose, and sustainability. (more…)
Radical Living…begins with you. Define what counts, then Live the Life you choose.
Genetic engineering impacts our children. Altered nutrients or added toxins can result in developmental problems. We’re being fed GM foods daily, without knowing the impact of these foods on our health, our behavior, or our children. Thousands of schools around the world, particularly in Europe, have decided not to let their kids be used as guinea pigs. They have banned GM foods. (see http://www.seedsofdeception.com).
GM foods are typically measured by a small number of known nutrient levels. Identifying the changed compounds responsible for antisocial nature of mice or humans in ingesting GM products cannot be fully explained. For example, the pigment in blueberries may revive the brain’s neural communication system, and the antioxidant found in grape skins may fight cancer and reduce heart disease. But what about other valuable compounds we don’t know about that might change or disappear in GM varieties?
With the epidemic of obesity and diabetes parents and schools are waking up to the critical role that diet plays. When making changes in what kids eat, removing GM foods should be a priority. Occupy Monsanto!
