Remaking Ourselves

As human beings, our greatness lies not so
much in being able to remake the world--
that is the myth of the "atomic age"--
as in being able to remake ourselves.

~Mahatma Gandhi

Of Note: In consciously remaking ourselves, the world gets dragged along whether it wants to or not. It is not and never has been the other way around. Human thought create and re-create in an ongoing evolutionary process from behind the scenes. It is part of our Divine heritage. This is one reason the Peace Pilgrim was quoted as saying: "If we realized how powerful our thoughts were, we would never think a negative thought." Remember that next time the news, which survive by the motto "If it bleeds, it leads," broadcasts the latest tragedy, gossip or speculation. We humans can do better, much better. The whole world is waiting.

Today's Weather Report: It is partly cloudy and in the mid-seventies. Birds are tweeting and frogs are harrumphing in the background. From a distance, a squirrel is chirping, maybe having been treed by a dog. The squirrels always win because they have the advantage of climbing. They are amazingly nimble. It rained all day yesterday again. How glorious. My sister emailed an article about the surprising lack of sunspots which may be having an impact on the weather. Could it be that there may be a more cosmic reason for global warming than human activity?
