SUNFLOWER

Sunflowers always brighten my day.

Need some brightening today.

Imagine a flower in the morning. The flower is not yet open. The sunshine embraces the flower, and the energy of the sunshine begins to penetrate the flower.

The sun doesn’t just go around the flower. The light naturally penetrates the flower, and an hour later the flower has to open itself to the sun.

The sun is our mindfulness, embracing the flower of our feelings.

LOVE MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND

The Orlando shooting was a tragic event which touched the hearts of many.

Innocent humans were killed at the whim of a thoughtless person.

It’s been a month and several days since the incident.

Many people have been moved and felt the need to render tribute to those lost on that day.

This is one long waited tribute since Jennifer López and Lin-Manuel Miranda announced their collaboration.

Both of them have Puerto Rican heritage.

The majority of the victims were from Puerto Rico.

Here is their tribute to the victims.

Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda Deliver Emotional Performance of ‘Love Makes the World Go Round’ on The Tonight Show

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jennifer Lopez are spreading a simple message: love makes the world go around.

The two appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday and delivered an emotional performance of their new song “Love Makes The World Go Round.”

The performance was a more intimate rendition than their first live performance of the collaboration on the Today show earlier this week.

Lopez, 46, opened the performance wearing a long cape over her outfit that spanned several feet and resembled stained glass windows of a church.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Something to think about …. “Celebrate Differences”!!


Diff

~~September 30, 2015~~ 

CELEBRATE DIFFERENCES

Diversity

Look here,
Come closer and look,
That’s it…
Close your eyes,
No, please don’t laugh,
I’m serious,
Right, now that your eyes are closed,
Look at the darkness,
Do you see the different shades?
It’s amazing how one color can be so diverse,
Imagine if we mixed the vibrant palette of the earth,
What a wondrous and magical rainbow we could create,
Come, let’s go generate it…

TODAY: Net Neutrality is Law of the Land!!


NetNet

~~June 12, 2015~~ 

HANDS OFF NET NEUTRALITY!!

BREAKING: Today’s the day — after months of fighting for the Open Internet, and after dodging a last minute legal challenge, Net Neutrality officially went into effect today.

This is a huge win, but we can’t rest on our laurels. Big Cable is already working to defund the FCC’s action. The strongest Open Internet protections ever have just gone into effect, as the FCC listened to the millions of Americans who’ve asked them to reclassify broadband service and preserve net neutrality.

Comcast and Verizon won’t stand for this — their lobbyists are already urging Congress to undo these monumental wins. Big Cable and Big Telecom want won’t let up. And neither can we.

Tell Congress — let the FCC’s rules stand and block any legislation that would undermine or defund net neutrality!

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has heard from 4 million Americans and written the strongest Open Internet rules ever.

Congress ought to allow these historic wins to stand.

The FCC has done its job, and the Congress should not pass a legislation full of loopholes that won’t get the job done or use the appropriations process to subvert the will of the people.

Please let the FCC’s ruling stand and block any legislation that would undermine or defund net neutrality.

At the end of the day ….. “Dear Mind, please …. slow down”!!


Mind

~~May 7, 2015~~ 

What’s Happening When Your Mind is Racing

A racing mind is the stress that comes with you not being able to stop thinking.

You don’t have the opportunity to fall asleep because you can’t let go of those thoughts long enough to drift. You’re mind is swirling around thought of past, future, and present.

In general when you’ve got a racing mind at night, your thoughts fall into 3 categories:

What Should I have Done Today

You go over and over all those things that you wish you’d accomplished, but didn’t have the time or energy to.  Oftentimes, this leads to a negative emotional place where you start to beat yourself up for not getting enough done.

What do I need to get Done Tomorrow

This, of course, doesn’t just encompass your workload, though that’s often the lead stress-causer.  It’s really just a hodge-podge of everything that turns your tomorrow into a daunting mountain.  And the temptation can be to jump up and get a head start.  But that will only leave you exhausted and far less productive.

Losing Sleep over Sleep

That frustration and feeling of defeat when you realize how much worse your day will be tomorrow when you don’t get any sleep tonight.  And your thoughts start to focus on, “O my gosh, I should really be asleep right now!”  “Why am I not falling asleep?”

This says it all

BlueHeartB

“She Is Coming, My Own, My Sweet”

She is coming, my own, my sweet;
Were it ever so airy a tread,
My heart would hear and beat,
Were it earth in an earthy bed,
My dust would hear her and beat,
Had I lain for a century dead,
Would start and tremble under her feet,
And blossom in purple and red.

~Alfred Lord Tennyson~
