NO ONE KNOWS THE FUTURE – EVERYONE CREATES IT

I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I’ll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.
—Isaac Asimov[1]

 

No one knows the future; everyone creates it.

Every action begins with an idea.

Every idea, when repeated grows stronger.

Affirmations really do come true.

Affirmations become reality whether spoken alone or as a group.

Affirming the destruction  of Planet Earth is a popular idea.

HOWEVER…

Popularity is not a good reason for choosing Fear.

We must love the vengeful insiders.

The salvation of us all will  come not from doing battle but by experiencing Love.

Smile; our only hope is to Accept the Gift of Love and to Pass it on.

Revenge and punishment are the smug expression of weak egos and bad dreams.

This is the Sermon of the Bully Pulpit.

The angry parent who spanks their child while stating “I’m doing this for your own good” is a liar.

Ignore the Fear.

Accept the Love.

Pass It On.

Please.

WHAT’S BETTER THAN PROGRESS?

 

WHAT’S BETTER THAN PROGRESS?

PROGRESS  IS A MEASURE OF PERFECTION

DESIRE FOR PERFECTION MAKES SAUSAGE OF  AN OTHERWISE HEALTHY EGO.

WHAT HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO DO?

DESIRE, WILLINGNESS AND DARING ARE  TRAITS OF A HEALTHY EGO.

IT’S OKAY TO TRY SOMETHING NEW.

ACCEPT THE LOVE AND PASS IT ON.

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT

And There You Have It.

Voice of  Dissension: I an Atheist.

Voice of Inquisition:  Do you believe in LOVE?

Voice of Dissension: Certainly, I love my family.

Voice of Inquisition:  Do you believe that LOVE is Unconditional?

Voice of Dissension:  Absolutely.

Voice of Inquisition:  Would you agree that every living thing has a reason for everything it does?

Voice of Dissension:  Hmm.

 

TWO VERY ILLOGICAL REMARKS and one kinda-sorta.

Atheist: The lack of Evidence is evidence. Ergo God does not exist.

Believers: There must be a God.

Agnostic: Only the Agnostic can discover God (if God exists).

HAIRCUTS AND DIETS: THE THEORY OF LOSING BY WINNING

 
HAIRCUTS

Barber: how much do you want me to take off?

Barbee: Just leave 1 ½ inches all over.

Barber: Okay but how much do you want to cut off?

Barbee: How long is it now?

Barber: (measures hair.) 4 inches here and 3 inches over here and 1 ½ over here, around the ears.

Barbee: Okay so remove 2 ½ inches here, 1 ½ inches over here and don’t cut around the ears.

Barber: That’s too difficult, how long do you want it to be?

Barbee:  Just leave 1 ½ inches all over.

Barber: That’s better; you shoulda said so in the beginning.


DIETS

Dieter: I weigh 200 lbs. I am 5’10” and I want to get to down to 160 lbs.

Nutritionist: You are consuming 2000 calories daily. I want you to start eating 1500 calories daily.

Dieter: At 3500 calories a pound it’ll take me 40 weeks to lose the fat.

Nutritionist: Actually, if all you do is diet, much of the weight loss will be muscle.

Dieter: I want to lose weight and I want to do it in half the time. And I don’t want to lose any muscle.

Nutritionist: Great, so let’s add a five-mile jog every morning; that should do it.

Dieter: This is getting too hard. I can’t do what you ask.

Nutritionist: Have you ever successfully reached your desired weight and kept it off for more than a month?

Dieter: No.

Nutritionist:  Okay, I have a better method. Do the 1500 calorie diet and jog for fifteen minutes, four times a week. How does that sound?

Dieter: Great. How long is this for?

Nutritionist: The rest of your life. The 1500 calories is what you should have been eating all along for someone your height and level of activity. You’ve been trying to win by losing. Commit for life and you will become successful.  By the way, I can recommend a really great barber. You have very long hair, you could lose a pound with a good haircut; Just tell him to cut everything down to 1 ½ inches.
