Those Words

Before I met you I was an average reader and a fair writer.  But one look at your face and I mastered the language of love written on it.  My hand when it picks up the pen, simply writes down those words on your beautiful face.

A Course In Miracles

~Peace is an attribute in you.  You cannot find it outside.  All mental illness is some form of external searching.  Mental health is inner peace.

~When you are afraid of anything, you are acknowledging its power to hurt you.  Remember that where your heart is, there is your treasure also.  This means that you believe in what you value.  If you are afraid, you are valuing wrongly.

A New Measure

I have vowed my heart to yours at least a thousand times in at least a thousand lifetimes.  And every time your disbelief shatters my heart.  And every time I vow not to give up on you. 
Love is a strange thing. It will lead a man to spear his own heart.  It will risk everything to behold the One that breaks the vow.  The Beloved demands yet again a new measure of my love.

Strange Ways

Strange in the ways you communicate yourself to me Beloved.  There are no outward forms of your affection.  All your mysteries take place in the most interior part of my being.  Your strange ways keep secret inside of me.

An Act of Love

A work of art can help people understand the nature of their suffering, and have insight into how to transform the negative and to develop the positive in themselves.  Writing, making a film, creating a work of art can be an act of love.  That act of love nourishes you and nourishes others.  If you're happy, if you know how to live deeply every moment of your live, then deep understanding, joy, and compassion can come.  Your art will reflect this understanding and will share it with others.

Dream of the U.S-Mexico Border Fence and the Black Bear

From Journal Entry 3/30/13

I am looking at a statue of a black bear that has been erected near the U.S-Mexico border. I have the feeling that it is near to extinction. I think how sad that man has caused this.  In 35 years, the U.S-Mexico border, a stretch of it would be considered to be opened.  The proposal would allow the black bear to migrate across the U.S-Mexico border.  This would come about because of their dwindling population in wildlife.  It would be a huge movement to restoring the delicate balance of nature that man has ignorantly interrupted. One woman in power would help make the change needed a reality.

The first barriers along the U.S-Mexico border were constructed in 1990 in an effort to stem the tide of undocumented immigrants and drugs entering the U.S.  Today about one-third of the 2,000 mile U.S-Mexico border is plastered with there barriers.  The cost the fencing is between $400,000 to $15.1 million per mile.  It will cost $6.5 billion for its maintenance over the next 20 years.

The black bear migration in southern Arizona’s Sky Island mountain ranges is threatened by the border fence.  The Wildlife Society published a statement on how the fences along the border pose a risk to the wildlife that migrate and roam across the borders.  Impenetrable fences could cause disruption to migration habits between wildlife populations.  The fence poses a threat to everything from insects to the black bear. By man disrupting the delicate balance of nature, the whole chain of life is affected.
