“The alternative to the truth is silence.”
NOT lying, please note. This has been my life’s guiding principle. Before opening my mouth, I have tried to remember to ask myself “Is this true? Is it hurtful? Does it need to be said? Is it helpful?”
I can’t say that my success rate has been as high as I’d like. I can manage anger pretty well; I just write an e-mail and don’t send it, or a post and don’t post it. It’s when I’m really disturbed about something or think something’s important and address that in a post that I fall down. It never occurs to me that the subjects of my posts would even know about my blogs, since I never identify them, much less be bothered to read them, that gets me in trouble.

For years I’ve been hearing about the SUMMER SOLSTICE (SS) but not really understanding what it was or why it mattered so I started doing a l’il diggin’. Here’s some cool info…
SS is also called: -Litha -Midsummer -Alban Heruin

But the consciousness that says ‘I Am’ is not the consciousness that thinks. And, as long as we are unaware of this fact, we continue to mistake the thinker for who we are.
The core of all of our mind activity consists of repetitive and persistent thoughts, emotions and reactive patterns. This entity is called ‘the ego’. And the ego is the one who identifies with possessions, opinions, external appearances and long-standing resentments. These are the things to which the words I, me, my and mine refer.

How to Find Lost Things with Quantum Jumping
While I do my best to stay organized in order to minimize misplacing or losing things, every now and then something manages to get misplaced… and sometimes by the time I discover it’s missing, I need it right away. I’ve also noticed that I’m most likely to notice something missing when I’m in a hurry to go somewhere and don’t have a lot of time to search.
FIRST: CONDUCT BASIC SEARCH
The first step in finding something that’s gone missing is to conduct a basic search, making sure that it’s not actually right nearby and we somehow missed it. A good basic search involves:
(1) Retrace your steps to where the item was last seen and where it might have traveled,
(2) Ask anyone nearby if they’ve seen it,
(3) Ask the item to show itself by asking aloud a question…
