#Omens&Symbols . . . Letting 2020 out

Let 2020 be carried away by strong winds bringing it out of our stratosphere.

New Year’s Eve…a blessing for all of us who await the light this night..whether that be the bright light of fireworks (televised only!), the still light of prayer, the inner light of hope, the new light of dawn… {Text https://www.facebook.com/1567391160191012/posts/2925267964403318/}

            “L’une des principales causes de division, de guerre et de violence dans le monde est le sentiment nationaliste.
            Le nationalisme
            est simplement une autre forme
            d’extrémisme. “

            Écrivain Mouloud Benzadi

            Love and Service


            ””The motive of the Higher Self is always love and service.”

            ~ Joan Borysenko,

            Pocketful of Miracles . . .

            Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

            “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.

            You don’t have to have to make your subject and your verb agree.”

            Feeling ourselves to be the-one-who-is-experiencing


            ”Once we feel ourselves to be the-one-who-is-experiencing we know who we are
            and the process of self-forgetting ceases.
            If we resist the temptation to focus on some familiar way of being
            we will lose all sense of who we are.
            We will be swept up in the freedom of existence,
            without any sense of being separate from it.”
            ~ Jeff Carreira

            Philosophy revealing relationship between the language that we use and our perception of what is real


            ”One of the things that the study of philosophy reveals is the profound relationship between the language that we use and our perception of what is real.

            We don’t have to look too deeply into philosophy before we begin to realize that our knowledge about anything is constructed in language and is always found in the form of sentences in our heads.
            Without language it seems that we cannot have knowledge about anything.

            ~ Jeff Carreira”
