We are forever surrounded by love. From the rays of the sun that nurture and sustain life on our precious planet, to extending a helping hand to another in need, our existence is found within this unifying principle we know in our heart as love. Life itself is the expression of unconditional love and you are here right now simply because you are a magnificent presence of this same love.
The beauty of our journey is that we represent a full spectrum of sizes and shapes, colors and… Continue
Man didn't come into this world for nothing. Man is an extraordinary achievement that has required long and difficult preparation. This achievement is not complete. It would be quite a considerable cosmic disaster if this experiment with man on this earth were to fail, and for this reason much is being done to prevent this experiment from failing - not because man deserves to survive, but because he is really needed.
The animal shall not be measured by man.
In a world older and more complete than ours,
they move finished and complete,
gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.
They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time,
fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.
-Henry Beston, naturalist
and author (1888-1968)

I see myself judging him and when I am conscious I recognize my thoughts are… Continue

No one, including the experts, asks that question about money . Maybe the answer is too obvious?
I do not think so. If everybody did know the answer the world would be a different place.
What is that question...?
In the good old days of the gold rush if you struck it lucky you could take the refined gold (bullion) to the mint and for a relatively small fee you could pocket the resulting money as a reward for your trouble and luck.
Those were the days when money… Continue
In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased.
Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks.
So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America, and sold.
In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down… Continue
