Of Note: Often pain--physical, emotional and mental--brings us closer to revelation. Pain is like a solvent wiping the glass clean to reveal a beautiful window outside of which milk and honey flows. It is invariably a part of the ascendant evolutionary path as the debris from many lifetimes is cleared. Those who know do not fear but welcome the purification as one small part in the purification of all humanity. Robert Kennedy said that "each of us can work to change a small portion of events and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation." Invariably this is a painful process but when joyfully accepted can change the world.
Today's Weather Report: Can you believe it? Last night the temperature got down to 25 degrees below zero again. Just to make us feel better, though, the sun blazed gloriously today and heated the place to 3 degrees Fahrenheit. It's been ages since we had a real snow storm, knock on wood.
News You Can Use Snippet: The Earth is really little. From our vantage point, it might appear gargantuan but it is just a spot when compared to the whole solar system. If a map of the entire universe was available, our planet would be invisible. Oliver Morton of the New York Times eloquently described the situation: "If the inner solar system were the size of the United States, the Earth would be the size of a football field; if the distance to the center of the galaxy was a mile, the Earth would be less than an atom." Could it be that tiny Earth is merely a stopping-off place for Humanity before it ventures on to bigger and better things?
