Universal Responsibility

Today, more than ever before,
life must be characterized by a
sense of Universal responsibility,
not only nation to nation
and human to human,
but also human to
other forms of life.

~His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Of Note: Have you ever considered that water is another form of life? Ageless wisdom contends that every atom, every cell is part of the Life that is God and is therefore "alive." These live atoms are combined to create forms which under divine plan should express Beauty. Humanity is that consciousness responsible for the combinations and has in the past not fulfilled its destiny in this regard. It would appear that is changing--ever so slowly. All the current crises are pushing mankind to take its rightful place in the universal scheme.

Today's Weather Report: The first freeze of the season is scheduled for tonight. So the last couple of days have been spent bringing in all the house plants that spent the summer outside as well as harvesting the tomatoes and pumpkins. This year amazingly the pumpkin plants grew and grew and actually produced fruit. You can look back a few days in this blog and see a picture of one of the white beauties. The temperature is currently in the 40's Fahrenheit, but that will not stop us from finishing the inside walls at our hunting cabin on stilts. We call it the Taj Mahal because it so "fancy" and built with all left-over building material. Mind you, very little hunting takes place from this spot, but it makes a great lookout at the end of the lake since it stands so tall.
