As God Is

As man is, God once was;
As God is, man may become.

~Joseph Smith Jr.

Of Note: What I am about to say may be controversial, and I usually try to steer clear of controversy. However, the fact that the Entity we call God evolves as we do explains so much it cannot be ignored. The Tibetan Masters explain that all Higher Beings were at one time human and that Earth is considered the school of hard knocks. It is boot camp before moving on to levels of higher consciousness and cannot be circumvented. We are not privy to exactly why training has been set up in this way but we are part and parcel of this Plan. One day, we too will be one of these Higher Beings and will then know why. However, I suspect that we will little care because the Earthly past will be a distant memory as the future spreads before us like a prismatic horizon.

Today's Weather Report: Well, it is not snowing yet though snow flurries are still in the forecast. If all we get are a few sprinkles, the 80% chance of rain won't mean much. The garden and lake don't care what kind of precipitation; any will do. Misty is stitch free as of this morning, and Chewy's ears are up permanently. A friend said that German Shepherd's ears stand erect at three months. Chewy didn't get that memo so waited another 5 months just to prove a point. What point, we will never know. The cats are scarce downstairs since the dog's arrival but in Jim's small turret office, four cats and two gargantuan canines often cohabitate within a few feet of each other. What a sight.
