Post script to above What Dreams May Come recommendation. Although the book was absolutely great, the movie with Robin Williams is in my list of the Worst Five Movies Ever Made. It was TERRIBLE!

"Chariots of the Gods" by Erik Von Daniken


how can we deny what is out there?
Life is short.....live it with ecstasy!

Intuition is a status of mind to live by.

The most destructive lies we tell are the ones we tell ourselves. Once you stop this behavior things begin to change. The universe embraces you and gives you the courage, forbearance, faith, hope and love to move up the staircase. It's enLightening.

Changing the world one person at a time.

Books, "Good omens" and "small gods" by Terry Pratchett (actually the whole discworld series, now that I think about it).

Movie: The matrix (part 1)

I never got into discworld novels, but The Matrix blew me away.

Hearing a recently returned astronaut comment on how when you are in space looking down on earth you cannot see borders. This comment hit home with me. Earth is so beautiful from space. You cannot see all the wrongs or bad things only beauty. :)

I am surprised how many fictional movies and books were pointed out as opposed to recorded events. For me it was the 9-11 events. Prior to that day I was a young sheep.

I think that a movie I watched as a kid, shown at school on what to do if a nuclear bomb strikes introduced me to how scary the world was.

Many years later an audio by Thich Nhat Hanh reminded me how beautiful the world can be.

Threads changed everything-still haunts me

Book- all of Robert Monroe's books

Experience- watching 9/11 as it happened and being in the tri-state area, was the beginning of my quest for truth-a total red pill

Put your awareness to work, not your mind. The mind is not the right instrument for this task. The timeless can be reached only by the timeless. Your body and your mind are born subject to time; only awareness is timeless, even in the now.

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
