"Willing Slaves"

From deep within my heart
I always catch
the scent of my Beloved.
How can I help but
follow that fragrance?

Last night I was walking through Love's
garden
where a glimmer of my soul
became a teeming river of light!
Laughing roses sprang up along the banks.
Dazzling waters rolled past the thorns of
being
with speed enough to elude the sword of
death.
Every tree and blade of grass danced in the
meadow.
But to an eye without this vision,
all seemed plain and ordinary.
Suddenly a great cypress shot up from the
ground!
The whole garden roared with delight -
the jamines exploded,
the broad-leafed trees clapped their
hands.

A face of fire,
A cup of fire,
A heart of fire -
all were blazing with joy.
Surrounded by flames, my soul called out,
"O God, where shall I run?"

In the world of Oneness
there is nothing but yourself,
there is no room for counting.
But in the world of things
there is so much counting.
You may count a thousand apples in your hand
-
If you want them all to be one,
make applesauce.
You may count a thousand grapes in your hand
-
If you want the precious wine
crush them all together.

The message behind the words
is the voice of the heart.
The source of all activity
is that utter stillness.

Now Shams-e Tabriz is in the royal seat
and all my rhymes
have lined up like willing slaves.

Beloved "

Book Review Reviewed:

Title: Give Me That Online Religion

Author: Brenda E Brasher

I have not yet read this book, but I have a
nice
review in the March-May 2002 edition of
IoNS magazine #59:

IoNS: Noetic Sciences Review

http://www.noetic.org/

According to the review, this is a book which
may be useful or at least entertaining, for
those
of us who use the internet.

If anyone decides to read this book, please
let me know.

I will be looking for it locally, or ordering it
from Amazon, used or new. Or maybe the
library.

Hey, what can I say; the title is very
clever...

Power of Thoughts

check out how positive and negative thoughts
alter water crystalization!
http://mercola.com/2002/may/8/prayer.htm

excerpt:Continuing in this stream of
awareness, Dr Emoto began to study the
impact of altering water by various factors of
vibration and consciousness. He studied water
that had been altered by music - healing
music, classical music, heavy metal music -
and so forth.

And the crystalline pictures reveal how water
responds to these influences … into complex
arrangements of crystalline beauty. This
begins to reveal that water is alive - it is
conscious and responds to applied force by a
rearrangement of its inner crystalline
properties.

this follows above ... very interesting.
http://www.spiritofmaat.com/archive/nov1/cwater.htm#top



From the above it would seem that we have
freewill to generate
negative or positive thoughts, and that these
thoughts also affect
things around us!

No rice bowl? read this

As I have posted this on another group it may
spread fast. Some Zen
teachings are adapted easily, and I began to
worry for the
consequences.

From my memory this Zen story with the
student finding the great
master and living together with him in the
wilderness.

After a short period of teaching he was told
to make food every day.

The years went by. Every time he asked if
the teaching was finished,
and if he could leave, the answer was no.

Finally he could not take it anymore. One day
after the master had
finished eating and was sitting in silence as
always, he sneaked up
from behind with a sword. He raised the
sword with both hands and
delivered a strong blow towards the head of
his master, hoping to kill
him and be released from his power.

Just as the blade came down the master put
the empty rice bowl on
his head, and it was split in two.

He turned around and said, 'Now the teaching
is finished, you are free
to go'.

For masters, web-masters, moderators and
other authorities

without a rice bowl, or with hazy out of sight
observation:

Life is tough...wear a helmet!

SOS Song


Hi Guys,

As a friend reminded me that memorial day
commemorates all war dead,
that inspired to add a little song to the
theme of "SOS" - the global distress signal
used in war and disaster...
Half a day isn't much to compose a song so it
is short...

Sos.mp3 - right-click to download, then double-click
on it...

Enjoy,
Jan

Interconnectivity



If you haven't figured it out by now, Michael
Colgan has been
somewhat of a 'Ramana' to me when it comes
to merging
science, integrity & genius. I'm happy to
share this clip from this
inspiring human-being, that so-well expresses
Interconnectivity in
a most profound fashion... Love, David

Dr. Michael Colgan (as stolen from 'The
New Nutrition')

In the middle of the morning,
on the second day of Creation,
in the Archean era 400 million years ago,
a miraculous combination of gases produced a
few simple bacteria.

My late mentor, Nobel Laureate physicist,
Dick Feynman,
convinced me it could not have been a random
event.
As a scientist, the best way I can describe it
is this...
A hand of intelligence reached into the chaos

and the precise order of life was born.

At that time, the atmosphere of the Earth
was 98% carbon dioxide
plus a little methane and nitrogen.

There was almost no oxygen.

The Archean bacteria began to "breathe" the
carbon dioxide
and produce oxygen as a waste product, as
plants still do today.
They multiplied across the face of the Earth.

Over countless millennia, the carbon dioxide
dwindled to its present fraction of 1%,
and the atmosphere grew oxygen rich to its
present 21%.

This new abundance of oxygen made possible
human life,
but it poisoned the atmosphere for the
bacteria that made it.
They had to seek refuge in environments that
are oxygen free.
Today their progeny live on
in the airless slime of river mud,
and in the darkest recesses of the human
gut.

These bacteria,
that eons ago laid the ground work for the
creation of man,
continue to support your life by their
biological role
in your intestines.

Without them,
along with some 40 other species of bacteria,

with a combined weight of your brain,
you would degenerate and die.

This prime example of our dependence on
ancient creatures
underlines the precision of the design that
binds together all life upon the Earth.
