I would wish that people come to realize that we create our own realities and all our emotions and thoughts are simply choices.

Some call it energy; others call it spirit. But what is it? No one knows. Any concept we have of what it is can only be an analogy....

An artist wished to paint a face The symbol of innocence and joy; He sought a child for his ideal And drew the likeness of a boy. Long years passed on. The artist now A gray old man one picture more Designed to make and call it Guilt A contrast to the child of yore. He went into a dungeon dark Its cold walls damp with slime. And painted a wretched man chained there Condemned to death for crime. Beside the other he placed the last; And when he learned the prisoners name He found the innocent laughing child And the hardened man were but the same. Montagu Gere

People tend to think Im always aggressive and strong. The truth is Ive always been wracked with self-loathing which leads me into terrible self paralysing depressions. When I go down to this place I feel so empty and overwhelmed I can barely move. But perversely I find these traits in a man unacceptable I cant stand someone who can out-depress me. You know that scene in Babe where the farmer clog-dances for the pig? Sometimes Im the sick pig and I need a farmer to cheer me up. And when things get bad my boyfriend does dance for me and it never fails to make me laugh. Hes a pretty snappy dancer.

Its not fear of striking out that makes me reluctant to step up to the plate.

So no its not the fear of striking out that keeps me from stepping up to the plate.

Dividing industry into big and little is artificial. Industry is both that makes it Industry. Ninety-eight per cent of American industries employ less than 500 men each. Todays big industries were small within our lifetime many of todays small industries will become big before our lifetime ends. Large industries make small industries necessary and small industries make large ones possible. Wipe out large industries and you wipe out three-fourths of the small ones; wipe out the small ones and the large ones cannot go on. They work together. Each has a part in the nations job.

Just why I suffer loss I cannot know I only know my Father wills it so. He leads in paths I cannot understand; But all the way I know is wisely planned. My life is only mine that I may use The gifts he length me as he may choose; And if in love some boon he does recall I know that unto him belongeth all. I am his child and I can safely trust; He loves me and I know that he is just. Within his love I can scarcely rest Assured that what he does for me is best.

Science being human enquiry can hear no answer except an answer couched somehow in human tones. Primitive man stood in the mountains and shouted against a cliff; the echo brought back his own voice and he believed in a disembodied spirit.

(On the temperature of water in wells) The reason why the water in wells becomes colder in summer is that the earth is then rarefied by the heat and releases into the air all the heat-particles it happens to have. So the more the earth is drained of heat the colder becomes the moisture that is concealed in the ground. On the other hand when all the earth condenses and contracts and congeals with the cold then of course as it contracts it squeezes out into the wells whatever heat it holds.

Not now but in the coming years It may be in the better land Well read the meaning of our tears And then ah then well understand. Well catch the broken threads again And finish what we here began; Heaven will the mysteries explain And then ah then well understand. Well know why clouds instead of sun Were over many a cherished plan Why song has ceased when scarce begun; Tis there sometime well understand. Why what we long for most of all Eludes so oft our eager hand Why hopes are crushed and castles fall Up there sometime well understand. God knows the way; he holds the key; He guides us with unerring hand; Sometimes with tearless eyes well see Yes there up there well understand. Then trust in God through all thy days; Fear not for he cloth hold thy hand; Though dark thy way still sing and praise Sometime sometime well understand.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

Some time ago a member of my family sent to me a critical article written by Mr. Edmund Fuller in a publication called Saturday Review. The criticism of the writer is directed against the effort made to satisfy what the author designates as general religious hunger with books articles and public appearances of nationally advertised individuals carrying on a propaganda for what is characterized as (these are quotes) the good life peace of mind positive thinking and successful or confident living. What the author objects to most strenuously is not so much that propaganda should be issued for the optimism of peace of mind and positive thinking but that this psychological optimism should be held out in any form as an interpretation of or a substitute for the real Christian religion.

We must discard the idea that past routine past ways of doing things are probably the best ways. On the contrary we must assume that there is probably a better way to do almost everything. We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

I need Thy presence evry passing hour; What but Thy grace can foil the tempters powr? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine O abide with me. I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness; Where is deaths sting? where grave thy victory? I triumph still if Thou abide with me. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies; Heavns morning breaks and earths vain shadows flee; In life in death O Lord abide with me.

No life is full unless it is linked to some- thing that goes on after we are dead.... If we have nothing more to live for than just to get ahead in a competitive system then democracy will go down before other philosophies.

An executive cannot gradually dismiss details. Business is made up of details and I notice that the chief executive who dismisses them is quite likely to dismiss his business. Success is the sum of detail. It might perhaps be pleasing to imagine oneself beyond detail and engaged only in great things but as I have often observed if one attends only to great things and lets the little things pass the great things become little; that is the business shrinks. It is not possible for an executive to hold himself aloof from anything. No business no matter what its size can be called safe until it has been forced to learn economy and rigidly to measure values of men and materials.

Paul Tillich can show us that the unity which we seek as Christians must involve our denominations in changes even greater than those which many of us now expect. His insistence on taking seriously the gropings of all men for the truth about their lives must be allowed to remind the ecumenical movement that the word oikoumene is Greek not for the Church but for the whole inhabited world. The ecumenical movement is more than Christian patriarchs kissing. Christian unity means the unity of mankind in finding and obeying God. Tillich can teach us that the Church must not shut its door to celebrate a family reunion while a single child of God remains outside.

At the same time we have the sweet influence of the Spirit of God pleading with us to do that which is right pleading with every human being that does not drive it from him; for every human being has a portion of the Spirit of God given unto him. We sometimes call it conscience; we call it by one name and we call it by another; but it is the Spirit of God that every man and woman possesses that is born on the earth. God has given unto all his children this Spirit.... Everywhere throughout the earth where man dwells this Spirit rests upon him. It comes from God. It pleads with man to do right. It pleads with man to resist the blandishments of Satan.

Mathematics is not only real but it is the only reality. That is that entire universe is made of matter obviously. And matter is made of particles. Its made of electrons and neutrons and protons. So the entire universe is made out of particles. Now what are the particles made out of? Theyre not made out of anything. The only thing you can say about the reality of an electron is to cite its mathematical properties. So theres a sense in which matter has completely dissolved and what is left is just a mathematical structure.

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....

As to the position that the people always mean well that they always mean to say and do what they believe to be right and just it may be popular but it can not be true. The word people applies to all the individual inhabitants of a country.... That portion of them who individually mean well never was nor until the millennium will be considerable. Pure democracy like pure rum easily produces intoxication and with it a thousand pranks and fooleries. I do not expect mankind will before the millennium be what they ought to be and therefore in my opinion every political theory which does not regard them as being what they are will prove abortive. Yet I wish to see all unjust and unnecessary discriminations everywhere abolished and that the time may come when all our inhabitants of every color and discrimination shall be free and equal partakers of our political liberties.

The basic assumption which all expositors seem anxious to secure is certainly right namely that the ultimate purpose of a parable is to help and not hinder the apprehension of the truth. But beyond this we may say that it belongs to the very nature of revelation that the capacity to receive it depends upon the prior surrender and obedience of the will.... The disciples had so surrendered to the sovereignty of Jesus and could therefore know. If temporarily a parable concealed the truths of the kingdom from the outsider on the intellectual plane it was only in order that moral conviction might first be secured with a view to intellectual enlightenment afterwards. There are many who through intellectual pride would like to have it otherwise but it cannot be.

They are feeling insecure layoffs and corporate downsizing have made their future uncertain.

Four out of five white males said no. 62 percent of white men voted for Republican House candidates (38 percent for Democrats in 1994 a ten-point increase from the 1990 midterm elections). But was this special to their gender? In 1994 white women voted for Republican House candidates by a 55 to 45 percent majority. Significantly there isnt single article decrying angry white females.

The solution the ablative heat shield had characteristics just opposite to those originally sought. Rather than withstanding the heat it slowly burnt away and carried the heat away from the vehicle.

In his enthusiasm the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study.

Then with my waking thoughts Bright with thy praise Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise So by my woes to be Nearer my God to thee Nearer my God to Thee Nearer to Thee! Or if on joyful sing Cleaving the sky Sun moon and stars forgot Upward I fly Still all my song shall be Nearer my God to thee Nearer my God to Thee Nearer to Thee!

He has loved us without being loved.... We are bound to Him and not He to us because before He was loved He loved us.... There it is then: we cannot ... love Him with this first love. Yet I say that God demands of us that as He has loved us with out any second thoughts so He should be loved by us. In what way can we do this then? ... I tell you through a means which he has established by which we can love Him freely; ... that is we can be useful not to Him which is impossible but to our neighbor.... To show the love that we have for Him we ought to serve and love every rational creature and extend our charity to good and bad as much to one who does us ill service and criticizes us as to one who serves us. For His charity extends over just men and sinners.

Interview 26-June-2000 with Daniel Jaffe ... a writer and Reviews Editor for Classic CD the British classical music magazine. ... what is remarkable though is that he not only suggested that jazz was a worthwhile form of music to study but he also praised authentic American jazz ...... the implications of Prokofievs enthusiasm for jazz ... The strange colours of the so-called American Overture for instance with its honky-tonk piano sound and predominant brass and woodwind colours sounds to me like a take on the sound of a jazz combo though not using its rhythmic style. Jazzy harmonies unmistakably appear in Romeo and Juliet and in his so-called War sonatas. Basically its a ... subtle and subliminal influence. . Prokofiev took opportunities to hear jazz during his many tours through the States certainly he brought plenty of jazz records back to Russia.

Organismic awareness is what we on the Ego Level ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is nonsymbolic nonconceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the nondual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole. If our practical life is centered on our own interests cluttered up by possessions distracted by ambitions passions wants and worries beset by a sense of our own rights and importance or anxieties for our own future or longings for our own success we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this. The souls house is not built on such a convenient plan; there are few soundproof partitions in it. Only when the conviction not merely the idea that the demand of the Spirit however inconvenient rules the whole of it will those objectionable noises die down which have a way of penetrating into the nicely furnished little oratory and drowning all the quieter voices by their din.

His epitaph: This tomb hold Diophantus Ah what a marvel! And the tomb tells scientifically the measure of his life. God vouchsafed that he should be a boy for the sixth part of his life; when a twelfth was added his cheeks acquired a beard; He kindled for him the light of marriage after a seventh and in the fifth year after his marriage He granted him a son. Alas! late-begotten and miserable child when he had reached the measure of half his fathers life the chill grave took him. After consoling his grief by this science of numbers for four years he reached the end of his life.

He named the nameless hills and dells; He drank from yet untasted wells; He stooped and looked in Mirrormere And saw a crown of stars appear; As gems upon a silver thread; Above the shadow of his head. The world is grey the mountains old The forge's fire is ashen-cold; No harp is wrung no hammer falls: The darkness dwells in Durin's halls; The shadow lies upon his tomb In Moria in Khazad-dûm. But still the sunken stars appear In dark and windless Mirrormere; There lies his crown in water deep Till Durin wakes again from his sleep.

It is part of our pedagogy to teach the operations of thinking feeling and willing so that they may be made conscious.

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch or the country of our birth or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not most of us choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice honorably or dishonorably with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose so are our lives formed. In the end forming our own destiny is what ambition is about.

You can domesticate your body but you can't domesticate your face even by having a lift or having your nose bobbed. A face bears the reflection of our nature which in the beginning is veiled by the attractiveness of youth. But as soon as youth begins to go everything written on the face starts to come to the surface and pretty soon it's engraved there. No landscape can equal a human face that's been molded by its own owner.

Philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Leibniz speculated on the possibility of intermediate species over a century before the publication of Darwins theory: All advances by degrees in Nature and nothing by leaps and this law as applied to each is part of my doctrine of Continuity. Although there may exist in some other world species intermediate between Man and the Apes Nature has thought it best to remove them from us in order to establish our superiority beyond question. I speak of intermediate species and by no means limit myself to those leading to Man.

I asked an endurance swimmer How is it possible for you to swim for twenty hours? What kind of mental attitude do you have? She said I believe that the water is a friend. It wants to help me. It does not fight against me and I do not fight against it. We are working together. I often think of that when I am in the ‘swim' of life. The waves and currents and the tides hit us all at times and it is not always easy to say The water is friendly. It requires an act of faith a volitional act; it means work but most of all it requires a will to believe. the more we use this will the more it becomes a part of us and the more natural becomes its application.

We know so well what the unique quality was that held this great and beautiful pride and exquisite humility together. It lay in the relationship he held with God.

If we never find it in reality in life we cannot reveal the true Christlike character at all we will always be trying earnestly to be something but on too superficial and obvious a plane.

When oxygen and hydrogen find one another their joining produces fiery passion. Out of this fire water is born. Quaint Victorian chemistry gives us an image of one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms in a fixed molecule that bounces around from place to place. The reality of water is not so orderly.

Water is a substance very much in love with itself and the atoms connect in webs and clusters where oxygen shares around the hydrogen atoms freely a fluid situation indeed.

But I do know that God is love That He my burden shares And though I may not understand I know for me He cares.

By whatever basis human desires are classified the promise of an abundant life covers virtually all. To the spiritual it suggests escape from futility; to the sensuous it calls up visions of luxury; to the defeated it is a dream of success. To the idle it pledges ease; to the weary rest; to the frightened it means safety; to the anxious security; and to the improvident it conjures inexhaustible resources. Persuade a man that you can give him the thing he most desires and you will be his hero; offer him justification for his failures and he will be your disciple; assure him a boundless supply of loaves and fishes and he will seek to make you king.

The later mathematicians resemble expert miners who seek vulnerable veins drill into these strategic places and then blast the rock apart with well placed internal charges.

The biologist can push it back to the original protist and the chemist can push it back to the crystal but none of them touch the real question of why or how the thing began at all. The astronomer goes back untold million of years and ends in gas and emptiness and then the mathematician sweeps the whole cosmos into unreality and leaves one with mind as the only thing of which we have any immediate apprehension. Cogito ergo sum ergo omnia esse videntur. All this bother and we are no further than Descartes. Have you noticed that the astronomers and mathematicians are much the most cheerful people of the lot? I suppose that perpetually contemplating things on so vast a scale makes them feel either that it doesnt matter a hoot anyway or that anything so large and elaborate must have some sense in it somewhere.

One may with Hartshorne and other rationalist philosophers press rationality to the point of postulating certain necessary truths for which we have no conceivable alternatives. Or like Buddhist thinkers of many periodsand like Wieman tooone may find in the very conditions of contingency a religious significance that informs the whole quality of life as lived. Contingency embraced without any nostalgia or yearning for necessary truth yields a different quality of life than contingency assented to as necessarily so in the absence of any conceivable alternative.

John W. Gardner the president of the Carnegie Corporation in an address said this: The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

I do not know what the cat can have eaten. Usually I know exactly what the cat has eaten.

I do not know why cats are such habitual vomiters. They do not seem to enjoy it judging by the sounds they make while doing it. Its their nature. A dog is going to bark. A cat is going to vomit.

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God. In so far as it is concerned with Gods creation physical science is a fitting study for Gods children. Moreover the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions at the least the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as almighty.

I see the situation as follows. There are various philosophical views mutually incompatible which cannot be dismissed or simply rejected. Philosophys output is the basketful of these admissible views all together. One delimiting strategy would be to modify and shave these views capturing what is true in each to make them compatible parts of one new view. This book puts forward its explanations in a very tentative spirit; not only do I not ask you to believe that they are correct I do not think it important for me to believe them correct either. Still I do believe and hope you will find it so that these proposed explanations are illuminating and worth considering that they are worth surpassing; also that the process of seeking and elaborating explanations being open to new possibilities the new wonderings and wanderings the free explanation is itself a delight.

In Russell I came to understand there are things worth living for and if need be dying for. The Russell of my youth was not a place of wealth. Yet it was generous with the values that would shape my outlook and the compassion that would restore lifes richness after I had begun to doubt my future following the war. Ever since I have tried in my own way to give back some of what the town has given me. I have tried to defend and serve the America I learned to love in Russell.

The secret of the world is this: the world is entirely circular and you will go round and round endlessly never finding what you want unless you have found what you really want inside yourself. When you follow a star you know you will never reach that star; rather it will guide you to where you want to go. Its a reference point not an end in itself even though you seem to be following it. So it is with the world. It will only ever lead you back to yourself. The end of all your exploring will be to cease from exploration and know the place for the first time.

Here is a report from Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo the official chronicler of the Indies under Holy Roman Emperor Charles V: Upon arriving there since what they found to eat was so meager some of these Christians seeing themselves in extreme hunger killed an Indian they had captured and roasted the entrails and ate them; and they put a good part of the Indian to stew in a large pot in order to bring along something to eat in the ships boat in which those who did this were travelling.

When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics the hate of some the rejection of others the impatience of many or a friend's betrayal we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end will compel us to say Nevertheless Father Thy will be done and with Thy help in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee.

The Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world And he set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. The kiss of the sun for pardon the song of the bird for mirth One is nearer Gods heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth.

A man of a right spirit is not a man of narrow and private views but is greatly interested and concerned for the good of the community to which he belongs and particularly of the city or village in which he resides and for the true welfare of the society of which he is a member.

A short term view will lead to a partial and perhaps twisted view of the whole picture. A crucial element may be missing. We may not be running the entire race. A friend of mine described a colleague as great at running the ninety-five yard dash. That is a distinction I can do without. Lacking the last five yards makes the first ninety-five pointless. In fact serious runners thing of it as a 110 yard dash so that no one will best them in the last few yards. Youve got to think beyond the whole.

Bears: When you see a bear the spot where you see it becomes instantly different from every place else youve seen. Bears make you pay attention. They keep the mountains from turning into a blur.... A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not. Roscoe Black a man who survived a serious attack by a grizzly in Glacier National Park some years ago described the moment when the bear had him on the ground: He lay on me for a few seconds not doing anything.... I could feel his heart beating against my heart. The idea of that heart beating someplace just the other side of ours is what makes people read about bears and tell stories about bears and theorize about bears and argue about bears and dream about bears. Bears are one of the places in the world where big mysteries run close to the surface.

Albert Gallatin to Alexander Addison Oct 7 1789 MS. in N.Y. Hist. Soc.-A.G. Papers. The whole of that Bill of Rights is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently no majority has a right to deprive them of.

There can be no freedom of the individual no democracy without the capital system the profit system the private enterprise system. These are in the end inseparable. Those who would destroy freedom have only first to destroy the hope of gain the profit of enterprise and risk-taking the hope of accumulating capital the hope to save something for ones old age and for ones children. For a community of men without property and without the hope of getting it by honest effort is a community of slaves of a despotic State.

A fraud not really a baron and holding no high military rank von Steuben was a skilled drill master who taught the American army what it needed to win the war. He once said: The genius of this nation is not in the least to be compared with the Prussians the Austrians or French.

Another advantage of a mathematical statement is that it is so definite that it might be definitely wrong; and if it is found to be wrong there is a plenteous choice of amendments ready in the mathematicians stock of formulae. Some verbal statements have not this merit; they are so vague that they could hardly be wrong and are correspondingly useless.
