It is the wisdom of the turtle that righteousness* is the number one cause of human misery and hate. Therefore this ezine works from the premise of the new paradigm which says: there is no absolute right or wrong, only guiding principles based on love and caring that work for all concerned.
If you want to hold on to your old way of believing and not grow in wisdom; then this ezine may not be for you. My purpuse here is not to convert anyone, but to help those that wish to grow. MORE
*Righteousness – the paradigm that there is an absolute set of morals or right and wrong rules that in most cases come from “God/Allah/etc”, and are set down in a book like the Bible, the Koran the Bhagavad, etc.

In the future, it [will be] deemed a great oddity that 20th –century scientists had discovered elementary physical particles but had failed even to consider the possibility of elementary psychic factors.

More positive side--
We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but
they all exist very nicely in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

  Have an awesome day, and  know that someone
who thinks you're great
has thought about you today!
"And that person was me."..... Please don't keep this message to yourself.....send it to those
  who mean so much to you.... "NOW"..
Working for God on earth does not pay much, but His Retirement plan is out of this world.

Growing Consciousness

It is the wisdom of the Turtle that the feeling many of us have, that the world is collapsing around us, will pass. This turmoil that we see is more our perception than real. This is because those who feel this pain are the ones whose consciousness has grown; this has made them more aware of the petty behavior around us. The history of the world is full of people who were even more self-righteous than Bin Laden or Bush. I could easily, with a little research, put together a list of one hundred leaders who were worse. The difference is that in the past, 95% of the population followed and agreed with these leaders. Where I find it painful to see half of the people in this country agreeing with Bush’s simplistic, self-righteousness, and bigoted approach to life, I have to stop myself and remember that there is the other half that seem to have a higher consciousness. And this percentage again or higher in Europe, Australia, and some Asian countries. According to Dr. David R. Hawkins, who has studied consciousness levels, the average consciousness level of the world is now above two hundred for the first time in its history. Two hundred is the threshold between self-righteousness and an understanding that others have a right to their path, and that there are better ways to address our problems than violence.

There is growing evidence that consciousness levels are no different than light. It appears that the random nature of our everyday reality may come from our individuality and when large numbers of people focus their attention on something, such as focusing it on a football game or an event like Nine-Eleven, the randomness in the world goes down. We have evidence that computers that generate random numbers become less random when individual consciousness work together. According to physics, the coherence of a system will always win out over the incoherence of the same system. This is how a laser beam works. A small percent of light is made coherent, which creates a cascading effect toward coherency until the whole beam is coherent. Remember that a laser beam, mere light, can cut through a piece of steel like it was butter - through the power of coherence. If true, then there is little doubt that within twenty years the consciousness of the entire world will be well over two hundred. And everyone in the world will look around and say, “my God why did it take us so long? Cooperation is so much more efficient and fair than competition”.

Invisible cloak

A University of Tokyo Professor has designed a system making a cloak appear invisible. The cloak is made of glass beads that act like a movie screen. A video then takes a picture of what is behind the person wearing the cloak and a projector, projects that image on the front of the cloak, creating the illusion that one is looking through the cloak. A fun video clip of this can be found at http://projects.star.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/projects/MEDIA/xv/oc.html
The cloak is made of a very special material called Retor-reflective. Normal reflective material scatters the light in a number of directions. Retor-reflects the light straight back at the observer.
"My short-term goal would be, for example, to make a room that has no outside windows appear to have a view to the outside, then the wall would appear to be invisible." A number of other applications are in the works. It could be used in making the rear of vans and the floor of airplanes appear invisible so one can easily see what is in back of the van for backing up or what is on the runway below the plane.
This may just be the beginning of this type of research. There is also what appears to be a rumor on the net that a North Carolina man, Ray Alden, has a cloak that has light detectors built in it, so there is no external video camera. But I could not find any reliable information on it.

Your next lesson, should you chose to accept it, is to go to the phone book and select a name at random and send that person a greeting card. Sign the card Angel in training, with no return address.

New Years 2025
This New Year marks the third year in a row that there has not been any type of military conflict anywhere in the world. As we all know the Armistice for this last military conflict in Central America was signed on New-Years day 2022. Many of those of the older generation, those born before the 1960s, did not believe that the Armistice would hold, and are afraid of the effort now underway to downsize the military even more then the last downsizing that took place in 2018. At 82, I am an exception and have always believed this would happen. I firmly believe that we have turned the corner and peace is here to stay.

The positive side of life

Living on Earth is expensive,
but it does include a free trip around the sun every year.

How long a minute is
depends on what side of the
bathroom door you're on.

Birthdays are good for you;
the more you have, the longer you live.

Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open.

Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

Most of us go to our grave
with our music still inside of us.

If Walmart is lowering prices every day, how come nothing is free yet?

You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Don't cry because it's over;
smile because it happened.
