When the Heart is Open

As one can see when
the eyes are open,

so one can understand
when the heart is open.

Of Note: Indonesians were surprised to wake up this week to a 70 meter crop circle in a local rice paddy. It was a first for the country. Crop circles have been found all over the world, and England is famous for its variety. Of course, man can make similar markings, and has. A few American farmers have sculpted such creations in their fields and handsomely supplemented their farming income. Japanese rice farmers have done something similar and formed elaborate culturally inspired pictures using different colors of rice. However, although similar, the self-created markings are not the same. Crop circles consist of bent stalks, not broken or mowed, in precise, unusual, some would say cosmic, patterns. They are always huge and can be viewed in full only from above. Scientists sniffed that the Indonesian crop circles were "man-made, of course" and would not even send a researcher to the site. A long-winded official with the Indonesian space program said: "We will not send investigators to the scene because we suspect the crop circle involves human intervention, not natural phenomenon, nor scientific phenomenon associated with outer space creatures commonly referred to as aliens." UFO proponents believed the sign was left by aliens. One resident opined: "I think they were left by an alien space ship like the one I saw on TV. It is impossible that this was made by wind or any animal." Could be that this was neither a hoax perpetrated by humans nor an alien intervention, but a message from our conscious planet to those with eyes to see and hearts to understand. If so, the communication has been made, and the field can now revert to its original form, leaving controversy in its wake.

Today's Weather Report: It's almost balmy today at 19 degrees Fahrenheit and heavily clouded. What I am waiting for is the January thaw when temps reach upward into the 30's but it better hurry because the month is almost past. Last night I wrote a blog that went poof on the last sentence. A single keystroke wiped out a full hour's worth of work. What a shame. It was about the Egyptian protests on the heels of the Tunisian uprising. The Christian Science Monitor predicted that the Tunisian energy would not proliferate--I disagreed because the energy of Freedom is unstoppable once begun. Today the CSM retracted their original prediction. On the positive side, the thoughts created by the blog went out into the universe anyway, even if not shared here. On another note: this will be my last blog until next Monday, January 31st, because I will be attending a family funeral in the Twin Cities, which will be a several day gathering of family and friends.
