"An Unending Love"
This blog and video is devoted and dedicated to my daughter, my grand daughters, and my grand son. They are hearts of my heart. Our connection through many lives..... is utterly infinite.
The degree of our enlightenment is the degree of passion that we will have for the whole world." ~The Greystone Mandala
~The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning. I think of it as the Atlantis passage, and I've quoted it a few times before. "As I have said, this isn't the first time your civilization has been at this brink," God tells Walsch. "I want to repeat this, because it is vital that you hear this. Once before on your planet, the technology you developed was far greater than your ability to use it responsibly. You are approaching the same point in human history again. It is vitally important that you understand this. Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely. Your society is on the verge of becoming a product of your technology rather than your technology being a product of your society. When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself."

The details of today’s shooting are still unclear. However, as of this writing, there are 18 elementary school age children and 9 adult fatalities. Prayers are needed to help all souls who have died to ease their transition into the light. Prayers are also needed for those in shock and grief who are left behind.

Now Moraga’s lawyers have formed a response: Kristen Cunnane was so "careless" and "negligent" when she was 12 years old that she practically deserved to be raped.
“She was herself responsible,” the district and three other defendants’ attorneys wrote in a Oct. 24 legal filing: “Carelessness and negligence on her part proximately contributed to the happenings of the incident.”
This is a 12-year-old girl we’re talking about here. A scared little girl molested by a man she thought she could trust, now a young woman being told that this teacher’s advances were her “responsibility” to deflect.
Please, join us in writing the Moraga school district and its legal team to express your horror and disgust at their attack on Kristen Cunnane. If we can bring enough media attention to this story, we can stop this appalling victim-blaming once and for all – but if we don’t speak out, more women and girls will be shamed into silence.
PETITION TO MORAGA SCHOOL DISTRICT: Blaming pre-teen victims for the actions of their molesters is nothing short of horrific. We demand that you stop the assault on Kristen Cunnane and her fellow survivors, taking responsibility for your failure to protect them from predatory teachers

(A review follows in the next post!)
Jeff Brown has afforded us with his many gifts. This book is yet another. His style is captivating...he writes from soul. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
Ascending With Both Feet On the Ground
Early Praise for ‘Ascending with both feet on the Ground’…
“Anyone who has ever tried to write about the spiritual journey knows how hard it is to find words that are big yet humble enough, serious yet light enough, full of drama and awe yet also stripped down and naked. This little book pulls it off. Jeff Brown has a most marvelous way with words. You think you’re reading a joke, and it turns into a profound realization. Or you’re following a complex thought to completion and suddenly it blossoms into a song and dance. I love learning about life and truth and love and purpose through the wizardry of Jeff s words. I think you will too.”
“Jeff Brown stirs the soulful imagination with words that encourage, challenge and remind us what we are and why we are here. His aphorisms- soulshaping nuggets for the journey- come from the heart of his experience. Enjoy!”
“With great wisdom, depth, humor and warmth, Jeff Brown s brilliant offering pierces through the veil of pretense, and brings us to our knees before the refreshing alter of authenticity. His musings manage to offer both an elevated, delightful and invigorating perspective as well as gift us with a grounded, solid pathway home to the most true and tender parts of ourselves. A heartwarming and heart-opening read, this beautiful little piece of art rekindles an almost childlike faith in the possibilities present, while reminding us to do the very real work to actualize them.”
“Jeff’s writings are so inspiring! His quotes wisely and warmly support our shared expansion, and his Apologies series brings men and women together in a healing process that we all must go through to be whole. We heartfully recommend this special book.”
“The book is fabulous—provocative, encouraging, and blazing with a clear-eyed truth that bows to no icons, only to the sweet, clear song of reality itself. There are enough sparks of wisdom in this book to ignite a blaze in the soul. Exhilarating, compassionate, in-sightful, these truth-soundings will vibrate in your being long after you have put them down. This is the kind of provocative companionship I cherish.”
“Ascending with both feet on the ground is a concrete and vital approach to personal evolution. The process of “enrealment” is not for the faint of heart—this is a serious commitment to standing in the purifying fire of a deeply discerning and ever-expanding personal awareness. Jeff Brown’s call to consciousness is clear and direct as he cuts to the heart of the matter with his words of wisdom in this eloquent and engaging book of quotes and commentary.”
“Jeff Brown is the Spiritual Warrior our planet needs today. Truth permeates his work and his authentic “soul” message hugs my open heart. His wisdom will inspire you to not only take your step, but to reach the luminous place inside your soul.”
“This book is a breathtaking accumulation of offerings. It turns out that our greatest love affair is actually with our very own soul. With his written words and their subsequent echo through the center of the heart, Jeff Brown validates the inner journey, filled with both blustery canyons and snow-capped mountaintops, coupled with authentic external expression as the path to freedom. Rather than resist the paradoxes of life, we are invited to rest within them to know ourselves, full-out and full-on, as spirit-embodied. Savor each drop for this is as deliciously nitty-gritty as soul recognition gets!”
“An insightful, wide-ranging collection of navigational aids for the path of awakening, with a special emphasis on grounded spirituality and deep healing.”
“This treasure of a book offers solid stepping stones on the road of possibility; paving the way for those who don’t just want to meet God beyond their path, but on it.”

How about a leveraged buy-out artist who used his family connections – and gamed the tax code – to amass a $378 million fortune , and whose campaign is almost entirely financed by deep-pocketed conservative sugar-daddies, saying that while money equals Constitutionally protected free speech for his own donors, there should be limits on political spending by teachers making $75,000 per year......."

Sociopaths: Impaired Sense of Smell
The study sample consisted of 79 subjects, and the sample was taken from the community (as opposed to a psychiatric clinic).
Researchers found that people that scored highly on sociopathic traits had more difficulty identifying scents and differentiating between scents.
The researchers hypothesize that not only may sociopathic behavior be connected to frontal brain impairment, but there may also be impairment in other olfactory areas of the brain. The amygdala is one of the parts of the brain that process olfactory sensations, or smells. The amgydala is also connected to social interaction and aggression, two traits that may be found in people with sociopathic behavior.
The study authors stated that it would be more difficult to "fake good" or "fake bad" on an olfactory test.
Obviously there need to be more studies with a higher sample size in order to make further connections between sociopathic behavior and sense of smell.
