About Me Not religious in any sense of the word though raised Lutheran. I am intensely spiritual though and believe the universe is God's gift to us. For me that means we, all of us, have to take personal responsibility for our part in the universe and the effect we have on others in it as well. Race, gender, national origin, religion are all artificial distinctions designed to keep us afraid of any group not like us when the truth of it is under the skin we all bleed red blood and come from the same source. I've seen where we come from and where we will go when we leave this plane of existence, there is nothing to fear - ever. Love is where we came from and to it we will always return.

This is one world, we are one people, and we will not solve the major problems of this or any century until we expand our definition of family to include all human life. One does not kill ones family, when all are seen as family, our insane love affair with interpersonal violence will end, and our species will be free, as, quite ironically, the military puts it, to be all that we can be. We are not nearly so small and powerless as we think we are, one day we'll recognize that and move toward realizing our true potential. I guess that is different enough from most people for now, lol. :^)

Wild Fact About Me I've had three very unusual Light experiences. Am especially interested in talking to anyone else who has had light experiences too. :^)
My Philosophy People before dollars. Always. And, after 39 years one should be able to say single, not divorced. That was a lifetime, at least for my sons, and me, ago. No relevance whatsoever to today. Other than that I tried it once and it did not work. Dark Shadows reference there.
What Gives Me Hope That I KNOW more than this world, this experience exists. And God knows I need it having lost both of my sons, one at 21 in 1997, one at 36 in 2010. That I know I will see them again is all that keeps me going some days. That is them in the photo section, one of each as an adult and one as a child, frozen forever in time, my loves, in the album.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by President of the Planet: :^)

I'd eliminate ALL offensive weapons research, spending AND procurement. With a single world governmental confederation there would be no need for offensive military spending. I'd take the money saved there and spend it on education, housing and health care at a basic level for ALL people.

And everyone would visit and click at http://www.thehungersite.com AND at http://www.caretoclick.com/ every single day.
What/who changed my life and why Conversations With God, Book 1 and 2. They spoke the words that were already written in my heart.
What Bugs Me People who put money before people  
Passions Love, spirituality, people  
Inspirations The size and scale of the universe  
What Scares Me People who kill and say God told them to  
  Favorites
Role Models Jesus - the REAL one!  
Quotation If today brings even one choice your way,
choose to be a bringer of the light.

Fear prophets and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them. -Umberto Eco, philosopher and novelist (b. 5 Jan 1932)

From Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations with God, book 1. "Mine (God) is always your Highest Thought, your Clearest Word, your Grandest Feeling. Anything less is from another source."

"The Highest Thought is always that thought which contains joy. The Greatest Words are those words which contain truth. The Grandest Feeling is that feeling which you call love." To this I would add, that a look around the world today reveals that we have many miles to go before we sleep or can call our world a civilization, we are still toddlers when it comes to love and spirituality, crabby toddlers.
