THE GATHERING STORM ….. Air pollution in Asia!!

Air pollution in Asia may be changing weather patterns in the United States

BY CLARA CHAISSON

Increasingly intense storms in the United States might have an unexpected origin: Asian air pollution. Researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have found that aerosols from across the Pacific strengthen extra-tropical cyclones — a type of storm system that drives much of our country’s weather.

Asia is home to the world’s 20 most polluted cities, but that dirty air doesn’t stay put, as the above animation of aerosol emissions shows. Water vapor in the atmosphere condenses around particles, and an influx of particulate matter — say, from a coal-fired power plant — can produce bigger, badder clouds. So far, the atmospheric scientists have only looked at how pollution from the continent affects North American weather, but they expect that the effects are global in scale. When countries around the world finalize carbon emissions commitments this year, let’s hope they remember we’re on different sides of the same planet.

To start the day …. “Give it away and it will come back”!!

Give it away and it will come back

~~Alan Watts~~

AW5

‘That what I want, basically, what I really want, is what you want. And I don’t know what you want. Surprise me’.

But that’s the kinship between “I” and “thou”. So when I ask, I go right down to the question, which we started with: “What do I want?”

The answer is “I don’t know”.

When Bodhidharma was asked, “Who are you?” which is another form of the same question, he said “I don’t know”. Planting flowers to which the butterflies come, Bodhidharma says “I know not”. I don’t know what I want.

And when you don’t know what you want, you reach the state of desirelessness. When you “really” don’t know … you see, there’s a beginning stage of not knowing, and there’s an ending stage of not knowing.

In the beginning stage, you don’t know what you want because you haven’t thought about it, or you’ve only thought superficially.

Then when somebody forces you to think about it and go through it, you say, “Yeah, I think I’d like this, I think I’d like that, I think I’d like the other”. That’s the middle stage.

Then you get beyond that, and say “Is that what I really want?” In the end you say, “No, I don’t think that’s it … I might be satisfied with it for a while, and I wouldn’t turn my nose up at it, but it’s not really what I want”.

Why don’t you really know what you want? Two reasons, that you don’t really know what you want.

Number one: You have it.

Number two: You don’t know yourself.

Because you never can. The godhead is never the object of its own knowledge, just as a knife doesn’t cut itself, fire doesn’t burn itself, life doesn’t illumine itself. It’s always an endless mystery to itself. “I don’t know”.

And this “I don’t know”, uttered in the infinite interior of the spirit, this “I don’t know”, is the same thing as “I love”, “I let go”, “I don’t try to force or control”. It’s the same thing as humility.

ItLetF-45

And so the Upanishads say, “If you think that you understand Brahman, you do not understand. You have yet to be instructed further. If you know that you do not understand, then you truly understand, for the Brahman is unknown to those who know it, and known to those who know it not’.

And the principle is that any time you, as it were, voluntarily let up control, in other words, cease to cling to yourself, you have an access to power. Because you’re wasting energy all the time in self-defense, trying to manage things, trying to force things to conform to your will.

The moment you stop doing that, that wasted energy is available. And therefore you are, in that sense, having that energy available, you are one with the divine principle. You have the energy! When you’re trying, however, to act as if you are god, that is to say, you don’t trust anybody and you’re the dictator and you have to keep everybody in line, you lose the divine energy, because what you’re doing is simply defending yourself.

GoldSwirl

So then the principle is: the more you give it away, the more it comes back.
Now you say, ‘I don’t have the courage to give it away. I’m afraid’.

And you can only overcome that by realizing, you better give it away, because there’s no way of holding on to it. The meaning of the fact that everything is dissolving constantly, that we’re all falling apart, we’re all in the process of constant death, and that –
‘The Worldly Hope men set their Hearts upon/Turns Ashes – or it prospers; and/Like Snow upon the Desert’s dusty Face/Lighting a little Hour or two – is gone all that Omar Khayyam jazz.

ItLet-8

You know, ‘The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, the great globe itself, I, all which it inherit — shall dissolve, and like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind.’   …

All falling apart. Everything is. That’s the great assistance to you. That fact that everything is in decay is your helper. That is allowing you that you don’t have to let go, because there’s nothing to hold on to.

It’s achieved for you, in other words, by the process of nature. So once you see that you just don’t have a prayer, and it’s all washed up, and that you will vanish and “leave not a rack behind”, and you really get with that, suddenly you find that you have the power, this enormous access of energy.

But it’s not power that came to you because you grabbed it; it came in entirely the opposite way. The power that comes to you in that opposite way is power with which you can be trusted.’

New Year 2015: Google wishes Happy New Year with an animated doodle

New Delhi

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year 2015, Google has posted an animated doodle on its homepage. The doodle has been created by guest artist Cindy Suen.

This doodle is in tune with Google’s tradition of posting doodles on New Year.

The last year’s New Year doodle was in continuation to the New year’s eve 2013 doodle. The animated doodle showed a party on with speakers blaring and the digits 2-0-1-3 grooving on the dance floor and the digit 4 that had been waiting for the new year to begin replaced the digit 3 to form “2014”.

To start the day …. “A reprieve”!!


~~November 29, 2014~~ 

I need a moment to get away from the ugliness and the pettiness of life. Life is good but there are so many out there, in different positions of power and many “common folk” trying to bring it down and make it “bad” for all. 

Nature soothes me. Music soothes me. If only for a moment before the reality and ugliness return. 

We humans are creating the ugliness that has never been intended to be in life. 

It’s all on us.

Something to celebrate …. 12 LGBT facts!!


~~November 25, 2014~!

The world we live in is changing …. in some parts of the world. In others, it seems to be going back in time. 

Almost 11% of Americans acknowledge some same-sex attraction — and about 19 million Americans have participated in same-sex sexual encounters. There are LGBT individuals in the military, raising families, and getting married. Over the years, churches have grown more accepting of same-sex couples. Why not celebrate them?

Watch the video to find out what each stripe of the Gay Pride flag means and more facts about LGBT acceptance and community.

‘Dancing At The Movies’ Supercut Imagines If Every Dance Scene Was Set To ‘Footloose’

Just TRY fighting the urge to dance after watching this amazing supercut. The video features dance scenes from just about every movie in existence, all set to the obligatory Kenny Loggins’ classic “Footloose.”

Can you name all the movies to which these dance scenes belong? It’s quite a challenge, but the bigger challenge is resisting the urge to dance like Kevin Bacon halfway through the video.
