"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.

"ONLY LOVE PREVAILS" ...."I've loved you for a thousand years; I'll love you for a thousand more....."

The degree of our enlightenment is the degree of passion that we will have for the whole world." ~The Greystone Mandala

Winston Churchill

"Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Do not go gentle into that good night."

Dylan Thomas


In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning I think of. I refer to 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."

Neve Shalom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In my previous post about Gerald Kogan, PhD, I referenced a training in Israel in 1999.  At Neve Shalon, the experiences I had, whether therapeutic training, being in Israel and taking part in exploration especially of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, discovering the culture(s), meeting therapists from many other countries, and countless other rich and deep experiences ... was a marker for my life.  It was, and continues, to be the richest educational experience I have ever had.

When we we there, I took many photos. But one I took and treasure deeply is one of the corner of a rock wall behind my room.  It was so significant as a nexus of all my feelings in that space.  It seemed to me, then and now, that is was a symbol of grounding ... of strength ... of the flood of my lessons there ... of deep appreciation of a few who were determined not to allow me to slide into not participating because of insecurity (I was the youngest (in therapeutic practice years, but not chronological age!). In progressing, I sure made my share of mistakes which, unbelievably, I remember as if it were yesterday.  From close people there, I experienced no shortage of gentle and clear confrontation ... all deeply beneficial to this day, this minute.

When I returned, and people asked me the usual "vacation" questions, I discovered that I could barely answer, save some rather rote and pleasant response.  To this day, some 16 years later, it is still a "diamond in my heart", of more carats than I could ever count..... still uneffable.
