One of my earliest memories is playing in a sandbox with my brother. It had a striped awning, green and white.
The sand feels so cool, and has an unusually pleasant sensation. It’s similar to putting your hand into a bin of dried corn kernels, or sunflower seeds, or birdseed.
It feels like it is alive in some way, this easy ability to reshape as you move your hands or your feet through it. And it pours, like water.
Did you ever want to go beyond what technology offers?
Way beyond what governments offer?
Way beyond what art or entertainment offer?
To live beyond the horizon of now.
I really like the idea of the outer limits.
A place in the unknown that has discovery everywhere.
Yes, it’s like being a child again – seeing what is in the world – this place and time I find myself in.
Plato believed that everything already exists – every idea, every work of art, every everything – and that we only need to discover it, find it, uncover it.
I am on the beach.
The sand feels warm and inviting on my feet.
I love the “swish, swish” of the waves.
The pebbles are tumbled, soft clear white.
The seashells call to me to look at them.
A child is making a sand castle, with a red, metal pale.
Another child is blowing bubbles.
A single bubble floats by me.
I am happy.
I see myself in the bubble, happy, along with this whole beach, sky, and ocean, in that little bubble.
It floats away to carry my happiness beyond me.
Have you ever noticed someone going about, whistling as they’re going about their business?
Perhaps at the grocery store, the mall, the gas station, or even at your work?
They go about whistling and seem to be in the state of mind of contentness, or perhaps as if they are floating on a cloud.
If you catch their eye for a glimpse, just a moment, they seem to be in a very pleasant state. They never seem to be angry or upset or in a sullen mood.
You also notice this with children. The children just open up and start to sing, beautiful songs.
Hold Your Tongue.
My Mom would say to us, when we were little, "If you don't have something nice to say, say nothing at all."

I am peace on earth.
It's amazing how easily peace spreads.
My thoughts declare a peaceful world.
All read my thoughts even if they don't realize it.
All decisions are better because I send illumination.
Today is a very good day.
The past is passed.
A new breath now.
A dove visits each person today, perhaps unseen.
I feel the peace growing.
When something is bothering me, I mean really bothering me, I say, "Please bless my thoughts."
I stay with the intention for about 20 seconds, letting it do its miracle, seeing the thoughts become a misty fog - clearing, clearing, cleared. My mind feels absolutely clear, sort of illuminated, as if that is the way it was meant to be. It's like the thoughts were literally vaporized by the sheer and total benevolence of Spirit. If you don't like the word "bless", you can say, "Please harmonize my thoughts." It works just as well.
