Dr. Bruce Lipton


Humanity is On the Brink of Spontaneous Evolution

Spontaneous Evolution offers you the information, inspiration and invitation to participate in the greatest adventure in human history – conscious evolution!

Economic meltdown … environmental crisis … seemingly endless warfare. The world is in critical condition.

We’ve all heard stories of people who experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world?

According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it’s not only possible, it’s already happening. We are surrounded by the proof that we are poised to take an incredible step forward in the growth of our species. In Spontaneous Evolution, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics teams up with political philosopher Steve Bhaerman to offer a new and hopeful story about humanity’s evolutionary destiny.

Look in your heart...and find LOVE LOVE LOVE


SING ALONG!!! : )
Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but your so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, now I'm tryin to get back
before the cool done run out I'll be givin it my best test
and nothin's gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won't hesitate no more,
no more, it cannot wait
I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you're free
look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
listen to the music at the moment people dance and sing with me
Were just 1 big family
And it's our godforsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So, i won't hesitate no more,
no more, it cannot wait i'm sure
there's no need to complicate our time is short
this is our fate
I'm yours

Scooch on over closer, dear
And I will nibble your ear

I've been spendin' way too long checkin' my tongue in the mirror
and bendin' over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
and so I drew a new face and I laughed
I guess what I'd be sayin' is there ain't no better reason
to rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
it's what we aim to do
our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more,
no more it cannot wait
I'm yours

well open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you're free
look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
ah, la one big family
it's your god forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved

open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you're free
look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
ah, la happy family
it's our god forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved

it's our god forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved
listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
ah, la peaceful melodies
it's you god forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved

The Intenders of the Highest Good~



I want to share some really awesome things with you! I have been an Intender of the highest good and I am going to start an Intenders Circle (something I have been wanting to do for awhile!) I am going to post a small blurb from one of the 44 series e-mails that you can subscribe to for free ! I also ordered the book "The Code" and it is an excellent read! So PLEASE Visit the websites and take advantage of the wonderful information and become an Intender of the Highest Good! Tony Burrough's is the man!

The Bridge ~ Step 4 ~ The Highest Good

What you are calling your Intentions for the Highest Goodare the threads of the cloth being woven into the robe of peace.

In the Intenders, we don't have any rules, but we do have one thing that we never compromise on. It's what binds us together and we call it our Highest Good clause or "the world's greatest insurance policy." It works like this: when we make an intention - any intention - we always say that in order for it to manifest that it must serve the highest and best good of the Universe and the highest and best good for ourselves and everyone concerned. It's as simple as that! Oh, and by the way, even if we forget to say it, it's understood that the Highest Good clause is always in effect when we make our intentions.

When we first started to use the Intention Process, we thought that the only thing we were doing was learning how to manifest things so we'd be happier. It wasn't until we'd been at it for well over a year that we realized something else was happening. Not only were our dreams coming true, but we were also letting go of old stuff that we'd been hanging onto forever. It was that old stuff that was holding us back from living in our highest light. On one hand, our desires were being fulfilled; and, on the other hand, we were giving up our old desires that hadn't manifested. Pretty soon, we noticed that we didn't have as many desires as before. They had all either been manifested or let go of. That's when things started getting really good! We began to feel lighter and freer. The Intention Process was lining us up with our highest good, and what was being brought to us was a more wonderful, much grander gift than we had received from the small, mundane intentions that we had manifested since we first started. It was as if we were sprouting wings.

Sally Moore
From The Intenders Handbook

My Intention for today is: I intend that I am aligned with the Highest Good in everything I say and do.

Happy Father's Day


Well it has been 27 years since my Daddy passed. He left this world the day before Father's day. I sure do miss him! I think about him pretty much every day. This picture was taken in front of the Walnut Creek Railroad Station. Him and Uncle Ron moved the train station and the cars which became a well known restaurant in Walnut Creek.

I am sending blessings to all of you dad's out there and may your day be filled with beautiful miracles.

Starry Starry Night~ In honor of Vincent Van Goh



The stars are amazing! When I look at the night skies...I can only slip into my dream world. The space of wonder and mystery. I love this space. And then like magic... a shooting star makes it's way across the sky right before my eyes....and I say to myself...."they are alive!" We are.....but made of star dust!

This blog is in honor of Vincent. He was inspired by the stars!



For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

Silently one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels

Synchronicities in Life!



"Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous."
Albert Einstein


I agree with Albert and I have often said that synchronicity is God's way of seeing if we are paying attention. Synchronicity is a term coined by Carl Jung, the Swiss Psychologist and he explains it in his own words.
"Synchronicity reveals the meaningful connections between the subjective and objective world."

A few days ago I blogged about 'serendipity'. The difference between synchronicity and serendipity would be that serendipity is something of value that shows up while you are looking for something else and synchronicity actually takes on another whole twist when things show up in our reality. Often called 'coincidences', synchronistic events show up kind of like in 'pairs'. A good example would be that you may be studying something and then that exact thing you are studying shows up in your reality in some way, shape, or form. Sometimes it may appear over and over again. When this happens one can only begin to wonder what the message is or what is it that the universe is communicating to us. I find it fascinating when this happens.
I rarely look at things as coincidental. I actually look at them more as 'universal gifts' and I am always patiently awaiting my next synchronistic event to show up in my life!
One of my favorite events happened when I was a child. I was about 10 years old and I was fascinated by the astronauts trip to the moon. I went to work with my father one day and on the drive to the job site I was asking him every question under the sun about the moon missions. My father was at a loss because he really did not have the answers. He kept saying that I would have to ask my teacher or that is a good question but he did not hold the answer. When we got to the job site I had to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately there were no bathrooms on this property and my dad pointed to a field with small sage like brush and said "You are going to have to go behind one of those bushes." I did not think twice about it so I walked far out into the field,I found a bush and as I went to squat, there lying on the ground was a library book titled 'Apollo'. I could not believe it! As an adult however.....I totally believe it!!!

"Can such things be,
And overcome us like a summer's cloud,
Without our special wonder?"

The School of Athens~ fresco painting by Raphael



1: Zeno of Citium[9] 2: Epicurus 3: Federico II of Mantua? 4: Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius or Anaximander or Empedocles? 5: Averroes 6: Pythagoras 7: Alcibiades or Alexander the Great? 8: Antisthenes or Xenophon? 9: Hypatia (Francesco Maria della Rovere or Raphael's mistress Margherita) 10: Aeschines or Xenophon? 11: Parmenides? 12: Socrates 13: Heraclitus (Michelangelo) 14: Plato holding the Timaeus 15: Aristotle holding the Ethics 16: Diogenes of Sinope? 17: Plotinus? 18: Euclid or Archimedes with students (Bramante)? 19: Strabo or Zoroaster? (Baldassare Castiglione or Pietro Bembo) 20: Ptolemy? R: Apelles (Raphael) 21: Protogenes (Il Sodoma, Perugino or Timoteo Viti)[10]

This is one of Raphael's most famous paintings. I always thought it was the one of the two Cheribums! This fresco is found in the Apostolic Palace at the Vatican. The two center philosophers carrying their books are none other than Plato holding the Timaeus and Aristotle holding the Ethics. Also in this painting you can find Pythagoras, Raphael, and Heraclitus with the features of Michelangelo!

The setting

The building is in the shape of a Greek cross, which some have suggested was intended to show a harmony between pagan philosophy and Christian theology.

The architecture of the building was inspired by the work of Bramante, who, according to Vasari, helped Raphael with the architecture in the picture.[1] Some have suggested that the building itself was intended to be an advance view of St. Peter's Basilica.[1]

There are two sculptures in the background. The one on the left is the god Apollo, god of the Sun, archery and music, holding a lyre.[1] The sculpture on the right is Athena, goddess of wisdom, in her Roman guise as Minerva.

Raphael was the youngest of the Italian Renaissance Painters. Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were an inspiration to Raphael.

I am fascinated by them all!

Blessings~

Divine Providence


In theology, Divine Providence, or simply Providence, is the sovereignty, superintendence, or agency of God over events in people's lives and throughout history.

Etymology

The word comes from Latin providentia "foresight, prudence", from pro- "ahead" + videre "to see". The current meaning of the word (Divine Providence) derives from the sense "knowledge of the future" or omniscience, which is the privilege of God. The initial meaning of providere remains in 'to provide' = "to take precautionary measures".


Divine providence is the means by and through which God governs all things in the universe. The doctrine of divine providence asserts that God is in complete control of all things. This includes the universe as a whole , the physical world , the affairs of nations , human birth and destiny , human successes and failures, and the protection of His people .

God governs the affairs of men and works through the natural order of things. The laws of nature are nothing more than a depiction of God at work in the universe. The laws of nature are the rules and principles that God set in place to govern how things work.

There are many interpretations of Divine Providence and some are more elaborated on than others. For instance Dr. King explains Divine Providence:

Lutheran Theology : According to Martin Luther, Divine Providence began when God created the world with everything needed for human life, including both physical things and natural laws. [4]. In Luther's Small Catechism, the explanation of the first article of the Apostle's Creed declares that everything people have that is good is given and preserved by God, either directly or through other people or things [5]. Of the services others provide us through family, government, and work, he writes, "we receive these blessings not from them, but, through them, from God."[6] Since God uses every one's useful tasks for good, people should look not down upon some useful vocations as being less worthy than others. Instead people should honor others, no matter how lowly, as being the means God uses to work in the world.

However, I truly believe that we each hold our truth in regard to God's will and our gift of free will. In my heart I know that there is a Divine Hand guiding the universe and that force is of the purest love one can fathom. When we stray from love we are missing the point of life here on planet earth.

May your day be filled with Divine Love~
Desiree

Serendipity~ A closer look!



One could describe serendipity (by the way...I love this word!!!!) as finding something of value or incredible luck or helpfulness while looking for something else. We all have experienced this in our lives. It is like the fairy tale of two that are out seeking their life purpose and find each other! I have a friend that was looking for a plumber and found her soul mate! Or I can share a story about a friend that went into a place of business to find something for a friend and landed the career of her lifetime! Great discoveries have been made that would be considered 'serendipitous' events. For instance the discovery of planets in our solar system, like Uranus or the discovery of penicillin, or other medical breakthroughs ...all was discovered while looking for something else. My favorite discovery (it is the only chemical I keep in my house) is WD40. This was discovered by a scientist working on a project for NASA and the creation of this miracle spray in a can evolved. The WD stands for water diplacement and it was the 40th time he had concocted the mixture.

Here are some definitions and quotes in regard to serendipity:
Serendipity: A very good coincidence, often leading to something really awesome. (Urban Dictionary.com)

'Mistakes are the portals of discoveries' ~James Joyce

good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries
wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

In the field of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind.
- Louis Pasteur

Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely. ...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serendipity

An unsought, unintended, or unexpected discovery or occurrence, made by accident and sagacity
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Serendipity

Wikpedia references serendipity as being voted as one of the ten English words that were hardest to translate in June 2004 by a British translation company.
MY FAVORITE QUOTE:
Serendipity is putting a quarter in the gumball machine and having three pieces come rattling out instead of one—all red.
- Peter H. Reynolds

Whatever the case may be...when we pay attention and really experience the serendipitous events that happen in our life, we can see how beautiful and magical life can really be!
Next time you are driving and get lost....it may because you are going to discover something that will change your life....for the better!

May this day bring you incredible discoveries!
Desiree

Heraldic Symbol- The Fluer-de-lis


This sacred symbol of antiquity and quasi-mystical has been of great controversy and the history stretched far back into time. It was said to be given to Clovis, King Frank by the Mother Mary and that they were the lily tears shed by Eve as she left Eden. From its earliest records (it was the flower of Hera, the Greek moon goddess) it has been the symbol of purity and was accordingly readily adopted by the Church to associate the Virgin Mary's sanctity with events of special significance.
Adopted as the royal emblem by the kings of France in the middle ages, the triple lily, or fleur de lys, stood for the triple majesty of God, his creation, and royalty. The three petaled lily is also associated with the trinity of mind, body and soul, which come together only in mankind.

The company I work for one of the brands (bras) is called Lily of France, the logo is the fleur de lis. Many of my friends use this symbol on their business cards and their websites. In fact my paper towel holder in my kitchen is the fleur-de-is!

The most probable origin:
So although the legendary origins of the fleur-de-lis have caught imaginations down the centuries, and are still to be found in heraldic textbooks, Nisbet's casual comment is worth more than later writers have allowed it. The lily, now called an iris, still grows along the Lys in lands drained by the Franks. When pressed and dried it reveals clearly the shape of the stylised heraldic charge. This is, on balance, its most probable origin.

Poetry- Emily Dickinson


Nature -- the Gentlest Mother is, by Emily Dickinson


Nature -- the Gentlest Mother is,
Impatient of no Child --
The feeblest -- or the waywardest --
Her Admonition mild --

In Forest -- and the Hill --
By Traveller -- be heard --
Restraining Rampant Squirrel --
Or too impetuous Bird --

How fair Her Conversation --
A Summer Afternoon --
Her Household -- Her Assembly --
And when the Sun go down --

Her Voice among the Aisles
Incite the timid prayer
Of the minutest Cricket --
The most unworthy Flower --

When all the Children sleep --
She turns as long away
As will suffice to light Her lamps --
Then bending from the Sky --

With infinite Affection --
And infiniter Care --
Her Golden finger on Her lip --
Wills Silence -- Everywhere --

Train Graffiti ` Artistic Expression



I am enamored by the trains! I love the sound of the train coming! The whistle, the rumble, the rattle, and the roar! It is one of the most comforting man made sounds for me. I have lived near the tracks for over nine years, and my newest location is two blocks from a railroad crossing. In the area that I have moved to I have also come across something else in regard to trains. I am in area where there are miles of freight trains parked along the tracks. I have been seeing unbelievable artwork on them. So I googled it and found it to be a big thing. On this one highway I travel in my commute there is miles and miles of graffiti freight trains! I pulled over the other day and just sat and was in awe. While most people look at this as vandalism, and quite frankly I moved from a city that had huge graffitti laws, I saw artistic expression on these freight cars. Crazy I know...my mail box was graffitied so many times that it had about 20 layers of silver spray paint on it! But I am really taken away by this train thing!
