Quotes

Are you mad, yet?

I know I am. While watching The O’Reilly Report  on Fox I saw how angered Mr O’Reilly has become about the state of this nation and the innate reporting from slanted news media people and the White House. It is a show I not always agree with but he always gives a fair look on most situations.

I am amazed how deafening the silence is about Kate’s death from Mr Obama and the DOJ. The coverage on the other stations not too much and yet just again another death but this time an eight year old boy killed by an illegal immigrant. First we need to protect American’s then we can see what can be done to protect illegal aliens.

At the end of this year many more employed people will feel the sting of Obamacare and find as I have health care is far from affordable. Remember the luncheon meetings at the White House with Health Insurance Companies? Thought it was strange but the WH had their answers lined up and now what a big lie. Health Care Companies have made huge profits. At this point the blame lies at the feet of the WH and at the feet of the Congress both Republican and definitely the Democrats.

What can anyone do? You can start by voicing your outrage. You can tell little spoiled pop stars who hate America to go someplace else, lick donuts and stop buying their music. You can use your mind and ferret out truth. You can spread your pride and show the greatness of this country.  You can stop waiting for the government to make it better and get up and do it yourself. You can stop texting, playing mindless games, disconnect from the soul-sucking machines and get involved in the schools neighborhoods and community. You can VOTE!

How many vets need our help? Not in their nature to say anything, I get it. I like to do it on my own too. But I know if an opportunity is given, I would give a vet anything. I feel the same about the police and the firefighters. These are people who ask for not one thing but have a huge heart and calling to serve and protect. Why can’t we reciprocate and show them respect.

Why is it before the first Black President there was relative respect for all races and it seemed people finally saw people as people nothing more.  Yet today the Divide in this country is ever growing and it is the same Black President widening the gap. Maybe it isn’t race but that he believes he is a victim and with that mentality he could never be any more than he is today. Frightened to act.  I hope we can eventually move back to the years of acceptance and understanding. Yes there are still closed minded people but we are human and that fact will always be but let’s not give more power to the race baiting rhetoric than is needed.

Lastly is the ridiculous fighting among the Republican Presidential candidates which is mainly due to the wonderful one side not so balanced press. It seems the press wants Jeb to be the guy and I think great another Bush. I like Trump and if teamed up with someone like Senator Cruz what a great match. But my thought are Trump is trying to raise awareness about the state of the disastrous choices made by all in Washington. Then Hillary can this be real? She is just shy of being a criminal if not one already and could be rewarded with the job of President? Seriously? But maybe that is OK with you. After all people licking donuts and you possibly buying one of those donuts is OK.

Get mad! Wake up! Do something! So ends my mad rant…thank you.

Quotes

Even spiritual people get mad.

This summer I have squashed down a raging gurgle because honestly if I let it go I wasn’t sure what would happen. Not to the ones in my in my vicinity but to me on that spiritual level. The more I worked at containing and ignoring the more I depleted  my energy and overall good feelings about my self. It is a problem spiritual followers deal with and it is a false problem.

Found on buzzfeed.com

There is absolutely not one thing wrong with getting mad. Today there is too much in this world to be mad about and by thinking peaceful thoughts is not helping anyone including your self. But releasing those mad angry thoughts in a constructive way (whatever is relevant and matches the situation) works to help you and the world as a whole.

My point is good happy thoughts did not save a good man from being beheaded this past week. Good happy thoughts did not squelch the chaos in Missouri either. Sometimes you have to get mad and fight but be sure what it is you are mad about is based in fact not emotion and certainly not rhetoric.

So why am I mad? I am mad at a man playing President. I am mad at the closed-minded attitudes of people lazy to not explore and find the truth of any situation. I am mad at the media for reporting only stories they are allowed to report (not Fox). I am really made at this lazy entitled attitude that seems to be expanding in a country my deceased father wouldn’t even recognize. All the things fought for by the courage and sacrifices of the greatest generations, now but a few with us to carry on the forgotten story, is replaced with a complacency non-engaging generation of the 60’s mentality. I am mad that entrepreneur’s free thinking work hard values are being forced out leaving a huge vacuum of non-thinker, the government will take care of it thinkers. I am mad that a hand shake means nothing. I am mad at Harry Reid for sitting on 380+ bills sent by both parties because Obama says so (playing around President). I am mad.

You can still hold that wonderful quiet gentle energy inside but the world needs people to start speaking out. We need people naming the evil standing strong and more importantly standing up for every single person who stands for the same belief. A belief that though we may live in different cultures different parts of the world says each individual matters. Not one nation but a world needs to unite. Leaders need to lead and not play golf, Mr. Obama.

I was told I should wake up by someone after I posted something. People are agitated. People are confused. People are angry. I get that because it is how I feel.  I handled it by rooting out truth and discovering what is actually happening. It takes an effort on everyone’s part to seek the truth. Knowledge is powerful. Make an effort and seek out your truth, not mine but your own truth.

 

Quotes

All you ever need is a vibration of Well-being.

As your world or your government, or individuals within your government, make decisions about what is better for you, and as they try to protect you from every possible potential experience, your lives become rather cumbersome, don’t they? All you ever need is a vibration of Well-being.

Find that feeling, that alignment to Spirit and there is your joy.

The Basis of Your Life is Freedom; the Purpose of Your Life is Joy. – Abraham Hicks

Watercolor Original Painting
Vermont Fields Picturesque Scene Landscape Watercolor Nature Art Painting

We spend endless moments and time pondering purpose and questioning the path we are on asking the one question Am I right? The answers we seek come in waves from a vast supply of people with what they see as answers. We read and apply what these people have written thinking they must have the answer because it is in this book, or they are on TV, or someone says it is so. We think they must know what the answer is to the mess I am in only to find it does not work. We fall back into our comfy chair and throw our arms up in disbelief saying how could I fall for this lie again? I must be doing something wrong? Worst I am broken because it did not work.

We are these wonderful gorgeous beings that have come to this time and place to experience life together and separately at the same time. Individually we have the freedom to choose the thoughts and feelings we have and those thoughts and feelings form a collective energy positive or negative around the globe. We have the freedom to choose the energy and feelings that bring an individual  joy or torments and challenges.

I seemed to instinctively know I needed to step back from the thoughts and energy I was feeling. I needed to connect to the higher frequencies around me and that took being alone and meditating. I feel more in tune to my natural self. Understanding, compassion, and respect have replaced the flow of deceptive misunderstood energies from outside my being that were battering me making me exert more of my energy to combat the negative feelings. Once I found myself in the protective healing arms of Spirit the answers I had sought were found. The answers were to my questions and I found they do not fit all. The only truth and answer anyone can find is the one within the feelings and thoughts of what makes you so extraordinary. Find that feeling, that alignment to Spirit and there is your joy.

Deliver me from all evildoers that talk nothing but sickness and failure.

“Deliver me from all evildoers that talk nothing but sickness and failure. Grant me the companionship of men who think success and men who work for it. Loan me associates who cheerfully face the problems of a day and try hard to overcome them. Relieve me of all cynics and critics. Give me good health and the strength to be of real service to the world, and I’ll get all that’s good for me, and will give what’s left to those who want it.”
– William Feather

Last night or should I say early this morning I laid awake in darkness not only the darkness around me but within me. I could not see how my world could be so bad and why no matter how many attempts I make it never seems to change. After many tears and a long discussion into darkness I felt I was no closer to understanding. What is it I search for and want in my life?

When I read this quote something stirred and the darkness I was very uncomfortably finding myself in, light shined into. Tired of the lies and cynics, the evildoers and the men who only perpetuate fear and doubt, I am searching and wanting people who share in my belief. I want to belong and I want to engage in a life I deserve. I want to feel needed again. I want to surround myself with people who believe that success comes from supporting each other. When we diminish another living soul we diminish the whole. I want people around me who find solutions. People who find answers, not people pointing the blame at another to deflect their own blame is the problem and these people never will find a solution. I want people who when you shake their hand on an agreement you have their word, their bond and know that is good enough. The hardest path is one of honorable actions. Stand firm in your convictions knowing it is for the good of all and not for a few and know when something is wrong it is OK to fail. Through failures we gain insight to wonderful solution but first we must accept failure.

Throughout this world we feel this ripple of chaos destruction and uncertainty and I wonder how much of this is real? Between the mess in the governments and the economic situations that never seem to get better I am starting to think we need to just simply turn them off. What would happen if the human race lived from a place of respect and understanding and not from where we are now? What if we said you have had your chance now it is time to start from scratch? What if you were compensated for your compassion and not your greed? I know I am talking nonsense but I think it is possible.

In the United States I do not believe we are going in the right direction. We haven’t been for over a decade but today more so. There is a man in the people’ White House who feels making friends with the Muslim Brotherhood is a good idea and having this terrorist  group to the White House is fine ( I wouldn’t have let them into the country but that’s me). He wears a mask and in time all will see how dangerous this man is. Look for truth and stop being spoon fed lies. These are perilous times and it is time to switch on the light and peer through the darkness. Never in all the years I have lived in this wonderful country have I felt such a low vibration coming from the people. We are the people and without us there is no country no government and no republic for anyone to darken. Allow the light of freedom which was put forth by a one of a kind amazing document to shine back into our lives.

All you need to do is shine a light. Believe in the goodness of the Creator the Universe and use your compassion love kindness truth and believe all things are possible. It is the energy we create together that change occurs. Humans have an incredible ability to be more. It is so much harder to be less. Help shine a light into darkness and help everyone be more.

Shine light into darkness.

Did the collective minds for peace have an impact?

A believer of thoughts are energy I find it interesting that out of the turmoil of the past weeks a possible solution miraculously appears giving the boisterous chest bounding politicians (including the female politicians) another way. I am not going to weigh in on my views of world affairs just my observation of this energy and my belief in thoughts are important. I know a few people who have sent energy out for peace and a loving solution. This past weekend a prayer for peace involving a huge group of individual spiritual beings linked their energy in prayer for love and peace. Yesterday everyone clamored trying to stay up to date with the swift moving political events. Many took credit but I am not convinced these politicians had much to do with any of it.

If this is the outcome of thoughts focused on peace and love towards all beings think of the possibility. By using our energy of thought in our own lives could we not then change our own lives direction? How much power do we have at the ready to change the world? Also if it works for a peaceful outcome does it also work for a chaotic conclusion as well? I believe it is our nature to live peacefully with all things including our perceived enemies. Not only have the people in the effected areas of horrible chaotic evil acts had enough but the world with all its diversity has had enough.  

It is time to heal and be better loving caretakers.

Maybe we need to be more aware of the thoughts we have and the thoughts of others and be better caregivers. When you become aware of the thoughts you have are they mostly kind, loving, friendly, productive, calm, abundant, happy, prosperous, giving, grateful, compassionate, and passionate or are they more of need, greed, envy, hatred, fear, anxiety, doubt, want, anger, not getting your fair share, or the sense of lacking (anything)? Which ones consume more of your energy and when thinking certain thoughts how does it make you feel? Has the latter thinking become the norm for the world? How can you expect any other outcome but what is experienced in the parts of the world where humanity is the most lacking. You decide the thoughts you think and no matter what your circumstances you decide how you will think. Sometimes it is harder and some people have to endure horrible challenges, I agree, but no matter what the situation the thoughts you have you control. Is it not now time to become better caregivers and reach out your hand and your energy and allow your thoughts be a part of healing?

It is a time to act with your thoughts.

The collective minds for peace had an impact on the miraculous solution appearing. The thoughts and prayers are still being sent and the energy for peace will win.

Age has nothing to do with living.

  “If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise.”

 

  Johann von Goethe

Let me start with this one idea, age has nothing to do with living. Age does not automatically make you wise. Age is not a curse. Age does not make anyone irrelevant or no longer an asset to society.  Age is an illusion by the ego. Age has no power so why do we live everyday fighting age?

What I am offering instead is life with possibilities and dreams that can happen. When you step outside of time you step into only one moment, one absolute moment, and while you have that one gorgeous moment fill it with the possibilities you imagine for your life.

I discovered my possibilities. Visit Laurie Rohner Studio.

Start small with each morning before you get the day started with the must do list say to your self, today I fill my life with possibilities and my dreams matter.

Dreams are thoughts and thoughts are energy. Energy stems from Spirit which is a part of the Divine Consciousness. If you  work in partnership your life is a divine life because just that you are here makes life purposeful. The need to know why I am here disappears because you are here for a purpose. You are enough.

So why then did I start with this quote and the idea about age because the more I age the more I see people my age being absolutely insane. What happen to life lessons showing us through history change is not always a good thing? What happen with using the wisdom we have gained to protect and nurture others with compassion and understanding? What happened to allowing another to live a life designed by a higher power and being grateful for the chance to live it?

Instead people are becoming short-sighted and small-minded, hateful and resentful, needy cannot even begin to describe the society we live in now. I do not like the term being coined The Entitled Generation because they are not that at all. The children of today are the children of possibilities. Through great sorrow and challenges (which we have put on them, all ages) greatness rises.

I believe this is the dawning of a new enlightened age. Why because it has bubbled and cooked for some time. As any good cook knows the best stew or chili is only better if left to simmer allowing the flavors to enrich the food.  But you must know when to stop. An artist gets this because if you overwork a painting the paints on the paper become muddy and deluded. It is time to stop the madness and start living life with one purpose, the divine purpose, which is to love. Love another and all things and do no harm. Understand and step aside to allow people to choose their dreams and their path. Allow life to unfold because something Divine is already there guiding us. Live in the moment your glorious moment and follow the dream, your dream. It was placed inside you for a reason. By the way age has no limit on a dreams. Do not allow another to say how what or why you choose this path. Make a choice and live your life.

No key to Universe?

TRUST that it’s all for your benefit.

“It’s so common for your world to just turn upside down when you really commit to raising your vibration. It’s no secret that thoughts are like magnets, so it’s impossible for people and life circumstances to stay the same when you change your mind and commit to a new belief. Embrace the change for a change and just allow in the new life that’s working its way into your experience and TRUST that it’s all for your benefit. I promise you it is.”
