The Time to Understand More

Nothing in life is to be feared.
It is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more,
so that we may fear less.

~ Madame Marie Curie

Of Note: One aspect of Light is understanding, which when coupled with intelligence equals wisdom. The three synthesized aspects of Light eradicate fear. Primeval fear is an instinctual response to many stimuli and is shared with the animal kingdom. However, only humans fear death. It grips us; it owns us and thus rules the planet. Over the course of lifetimes, the fear of death is proven to be an illusion when transmuted by the Light of the Mind. What we find is no-death, only change of circumstances for the better. When humanity as a whole embraces this truth, the whole world will be transformed.

Today's Weather Report: By golly, it is 38 degrees Fahrenheit as we speak, and the predicted January thaw has arrived as evidenced by a dripping roof. If this would keep up for a few days, the dirt road to the house would be almost impassable. Bring it on! The dogs are even more wet than usual when they come in and smell like drenched wool which is not entirely appealing. Neither of them seem to mind and are glad to plop down on the heated floor to dry off. At least their "pee-you factor" is due to water not something more onerous.

Watch for Change Snippet: A brand new concept has been introduced in shopping--the drive-through store. Yes, that's what I said--drive-through. Picture ordering groceries on-line, then driving through a warehouse-like building for loading with groceries in less than 5 minutes. The idea was hatched in France by entrepreneurs who sought a McDonald drive-through experience for grocery shoppers, and it is spreading like wildfire. Wal-Mart is studying the innovation, and Sears Holding Company has moved even further by putting plans in place to convert K-Mart stores to drive-through warehouses that will sell department store merchandise. Why does this model hold so much promise for international companies? The warehouse model means that fewer employees are needed and that is music to the ears of CEO's, who are always looking for ways to cut expenses.
