“Life is THE biggest predicament. It’s difficult and it can be unpleasant and trying. But hey, once you’ve solved it… Once you figure out what keeps it from being difficult, unpleasant and trying, then life becomes a beautiful gift doesn’t it? Try living a day where each step is out of love. A day when everything you do is for the sake of others.”—Yours Truly…
It’s a sad day in America or anywhere in the world when you have people willing to curtail the rights and freedom of other people in the name of mere symbols and gestures.
Also sad when the media don’t even bother to get their facts straight and instead of being a vehicle for educating the…
THE GOLDEN RULE…
This is the most powerful rule that has ever encompassed the lives of man kind.
Ascribe not to any soul that which thou wouldst not have ascribed to thee, and say not that which thou doest not.
One who, while himself seeking happiness, oppresses with violence other beings who also desire happiness, will not attain happiness hereafter.
Do to others as you want them to do to you.
Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.
One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one’s own self. This, in brief, is the rule of dharma. Other behavior is due to selfish desires.
Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.
You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against your kinsfolk. Love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD
Whom should I despise, since the one Lord made us all.
The truly enlightened ones are those who neither incite fear in others nor fear anyone themselves.
Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain, and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss. We will not see the end of intolerance towards religion, sex, age, culture etc. unless everyone realizes that we are all made of the same substance, with the same necessities and the same desire for life. NO MATTER WHAT, ULTIMATELY WE ARE ALL THE SAME.
You calm my soul, like nestling in mothers arms, like a warm breeze cooling the sweat on my forehead, lulling me to deep sleep and sweet dreams. You’re a loud invitation to the silence of loving anticipation inside my heart. Your voice alone, caresses my ears like warm water that runs down from my lobes, to my chest where it flows like velvet ropes that harnesses my heart, slowing its pace from a horrendous stampede to the soft beat of morning dew dropping on leaves.
Grab me with both hands, pull me from the torrential waters of this lifetime and strike me from fear. Please gaze at me with your soft eyes that encompass my world like the first rays of sunlight. Your presence defeats the dark cold night and its morbid crypt that nearly strangles life from all directions. When the smoke clears, you are all that’s left standing unscathed from tyrannic minds and you bring peace to all that is me.
“You will only get as far as you let yourself go. Man was made with limitless potential and beyond science are infinite possibilities. So, who is to say what you can and cannot do? It’s okay to reach for what seems unattainable”—Yours truly…
Stuff from Dr. Louann Brizendine’s book “The Male Brain” interesting… hahaha
1. What are the biggest differences between male and female brains?
If you’ve ever wondered why it seems like all the guys you’re dating think about is sex, you might be surprised to find out that in some ways they can’t help it. The brain develops an area in the hypothalamus called the area for sexual pursuit, which is 2.5 times larger in males than in females. And the fuel that runs sexual desire is testosterone, which men have 10 times more of than women. Those are just two of the biggest differences (See #4 for more details!).
2. Do you feel that one sex is superior to the other in their physiological makeup?
Both sexes have been designed to be more alike than different — after all, we are the same species. But when it comes to the brain, it’s clear that there are some things that men are predisposed to do better and some things that women are typically better at. For example, if you’ve ever wondered why guys want to fix your problems — instead of hearing you out the way your girlfriends do — the answer may be in their brain circuits. When a man hears a woman in distress about a problem at work or the fight she had with her sister, he races to solve her problem. So when you tell a guy why you’re upset, an area of his brain called the TPJ quickly takes over. As soon as he thinks he understands the problem, he stops listening to you and starts proposing solutions.
When a female hears someone describe an emotionally distressing situation, she continues to listen and empathize and may or may not offer solutions. Both of these brain responses are important for helping the person deal with the situation, and I wouldn’t call one better than the other. The better you understand each other’s brains, the better you can relate to each other and appreciate your differences.
3. Can you explain why men fear commitment — is there a hormonal connection?
I’m not convinced that men fear commitment more than women do. I think it’s more about men’s innate desire for variety. Studies show that when men and women in their twenties are asked how many sexual partners they want to have in their lifetime, men say 10-20 and women say 1-2. Evolutionary biologists believe this is because males can spread their seed without the consequences of pregnancy and caring for helpless infants, whereas females need to choose one mate who will help provide for and protect her and the children.
4. Do men really think about sex more than women do? If so, why?
Both men and women think about sex a lot. But the male brain’s visual system and sex-drive system are set by default to the “on” position, whereas the female’s may take a little longer to get going. It goes back to two of the differences between the male and female brain. His sexual pursuit area is 2.5 times larger than hers and makes 10 times the fuel that runs sexual desire — testosterone. So, if the guy you’re out with seems like he’s got only one thing on his mind, now you know why. But just because he’s likely to want sex before you feel ready, that doesn’t make him a bad guy. But it also doesn’t mean you have to follow his lead. If you want to take things slower, tell him.
5. Can you talk about emotional closeness, and what this means to both sexes?
Men say they know “she loves me” because “she wants to have sex with me”; women say they know “he loves me” because “he wants to talk to me.” Couples who come to my office because of a difference in the desire for sex are often shocked when they hear these words come from their partner’s mouth.
6. What is the best way to communicate to a man effectively?
It depends on what you hope to achieve. If a female wants intimacy with her partner, she should be flirtatious and wear sexy clothing. On the other hand, if she wants to have a long talk about their relationship, she should have sex with him first — to reassure him and make him feel safe — and then suggest they go for a walk or a drive where she can bring up the topic while sitting or walking side-by-side with him rather than face-to-face.
7. What is something you learned through your research of men that has helped you in relationships with them?
I learned that men sometimes have a stronger emotional response than women do, but are usually much better at hiding their true feelings. The male brain also has larger anger-aggression circuits and a more competitive streak. Testosterone stimulates aggression, strength, and sex drive in men, so we can’t expect men to think and act like they have female brains, any more than they can expect us to act like we have male brains. The thing to remember is that, basically, men and women both want love, respect and gratitude.
Persieds as we call them are known in Greek mythology as the descendants of Perseus a Greek hero. He was the tamer of Pegasus the flying horse and the Killer of the Gorgon Medusa. For all of you who hasn’t yet heard, we’ve been having meteor showers from the remaining debris from the comet swift-tuttle. The name of the event is called the Perseid shower because it appears to be radiating from the constellation Perseus. Also, Venus Mars and Saturn are dancing in the sky relatively close to each other and they change positions every day. So look for 3 bright stars really close to each other.

So I came home and took a nap that ended up being 4 hours of sleep. I ended up having one of the craziest dreams. At first I was a ninja secretly battling other ninjas. I didn’t know what their intentions were but they were very adamant about something and they would kill almost anyone who got in the way. I won this epic battle and moved on safely getting away from any other would be ninja attackers as I rode off in my car. Just when I think all was clear I get caught in a race with a pack of rude female motorcyclists. They banged at my car on the turns as they tried to keep me from pulling ahead but I still managed to pull away. So I get home from the whole ordeal and my home was a small cliff side beach home and I had some family and friends inside who were watching the evening news. Suddenly, the ground starts shaking and I immediately go outside to check on the waters and to confirm my alarming suspicions a tsunami rises on the horizon and makes its way for shore but it doesn’t hit us. It crashes on the shores below and only manages to give us a blast of air and a splash of water. When it all subsided, the sunset was hiding behind cloudy skies as I stood there in awe, tired from the day and from all that was happening…
