Million Dollar Baby

This morning I listened to a pediatrician and medical intensivist talk about the ethics of spending a couple of million dollars for one baby with a one-of-a kind (very rare) disease, in this case a neuromuscular disorder limiting normal breathing ability.  These babies might receive a series of doses, some intrathecally, (meaning they stick a…

Careless Speech

With free speech, the person with the most power gets to say them. Those with purse strings, consciously choose what is said during airtime. For that reason, “Free speech” is really a misnomer, I really wish they’d “fix” the First Amendment. Hold your tongue if you know what’s good for you. Reread the Old Testament book of Sirach, It doesn’t mince words! Speaking out of turn or rank, the weaker one will suffer.

Deformity (Geb 2)

Deformity – that which is away, de-, from form. The “form” is construct of manifestation, the shape or quality of a thing or being as it relates to function- what it does. For a human, as your presented self is often compared to the beauty of those before you, or at least, if you're beautiful…

Peace

“Peace Now” “Give Peace a Chance!”, “Peace on Earth” without specifics, these declarations make me wince. They are so non-specific as “peace” can look like anything. Please consider[1]this.

“love”

Imagine the softest white ermine – laying over my heart like the fresh exudate that naturally Band-Aids an abrasion. With this is a feeling of deep protection, safety and at-one-ness (atonement), holding me like gently peaked meringue. [I would have run from it like lightening in the past

Dearest Little One

Please know you are loved. You are so loved. Know you are loved by many ancestors, even hundreds, whose dream, sometimes an only dream, were that one day you would be born! They want you to know they are there, but only when you ask, to assist you with strength, courage, and resilience as well as many other intelligences that are particular to your own family lineage. May they serve only your highest and greatest good serving our planet Gaia!

Possession (L.D. #1)

This is really the FIRST of several posts. I am still a pre-novice in Word Press! The second is, "Love Daemon", and last, or next to last, I haven't decided yet, is, "The Healing". I hope this helps at least one person feel they are not alone in having an out of control response to…
