Entertainment is a major priority in life.
Anything with a nervous system yearns to have fun.
Animals don’t smile with their faces but who can mistake the joy of the family dog when the family comes home for the evening or the purr of a kitten or the baby who has learned to laugh?
Those of us who fail to get our share of joy and
laughter may eat or drink ourselves into near sedation; we watch an imaginary world flash before us on large screen TV or we go to the mall – anything to be entertained.
And then one day we become the entertainer, the child laughs as we punch the laughter button, the family dog leaps with delight as we enter the room, the Love of our Life has a bigger smile than usual because of something we said with enthusiasm in our voice and the world is suddenly better, our waistline relaxes as the need for a drink or a handful of cookies is forgotten and the sun comes up in the East.
And we say
to ourselves, “Wowie – Zowie – Leapin’ Wolliwogers, what’s going on here”?
And we began to seek new opportunities to entertain someone; we are eager to say to anyone who will listen, “you won’t believe what just happened……….”
Desire hungers for more.
Directed only at Self.
The Inner Elf……
Then Love is introduced.
Desire hungers for more.

I accept the Love and I pass it on.
And that …

When you were entered the world someone slapped your tiny buttocks, your lungs began to work and what began as a gasp became your first complaint, your first impression of fear and thus began your journey in search for the safety that had just been snatched away and you hatched as your beautiful new self.
You were handed to your mother…
You recognized her immediately; those soft cooing words that erased the presence of fear.
And when one day your search for safety led you stumbled into an unsafe high, you placed yourself in danger.
Your search was in vain and eventually you reached out to a larger pair of arms and discovered the source of the Love that met you and protected you at birth.
You accepted God,s Love and you passed it on.
Eventually, the ultimate safe place became HOME. And you and I began to understand THE EVERNESS OF NOW.

“Being true to one’s self is the job description of the Non conformist.”
“I prefer to believe less…and discover more.” Leeward.
WHAT? HOW’S THAT AGAIN?
How introduces Logic
What says HERE, do This.
How seeks Truth if only.
What seeks proof of a Kiss.
How is based on Love alone.
What says you wouldn’t dare
How is the way of the Tortoise.
What is the way of The Hare.
How is the flight of the Albatross
Whee is the way of the Free.
What is the Law, the Rule of Thumb?
Free is the How for me
The Rules I leave to Thee, Yippee.

“The Truth of ’Now’ is that it never, ever leaves us. The same is often said of God.”
