Truth in Three Stages

All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violently opposed;
Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

~Arthur Schopenhauer
(1788 - 1860)

Of Note: This illustration by a noted esotericist shows the structure of the "atom" from the energy point of view. Because of the "As above, so below" rule, the drawing could also show the etheric substructure of any being, whether human, planetary or cosmic. It makes no difference if scientists laugh at the simplicity of an esoteric observation since it is not unusual for them to wallow in the first and second stages of truth-finding for quite some time. What is important is that we know someday scientists will move on to accept Reality as self-evident. I would bet that day is coming.

Today's Weather Report: As it turned out, we had 6 inches of rain in June. That's a lot of rain for a drought stricken area. Every few days we have more. Could be we are moving past the rainless pattern and returning to our previous pattern of precipitation every few days. The lake has responded by moving a few feet up the beach. We would really like NOT to have a beach but it will take much more rain to get to where the shoreline was originally--if it ever does. The dogs like the beach as a place to pick up a good load of sand in their fur before heading to the house. Argh. July is the month that most of the flowers are blooming in the garden. What a riot of color, particularly the various lilies. Even the hollyhocks are beginning to show their stuff. Last year, they were mowed down by the deer. One night is all it took to go from gorgeous blooms to leafless stalks. The wolves have taken care of that problem this year. Nature has a way of balancing the act.
