Living Gracefully With Uncertainty

"Open-minded skepticism and living gracefully with uncertainty will keep you informed as you change and what is valuable or not valuable to you changes. . .To live with uncertainty as you discover your own truth requires courage. The good news is that this is not a timed test, you have forever." ~ Thomas Campbell, Physicist, Author of My Big Toe, a Trilogy unifying philosophy, physics, and metaphysics

"The further I wake into this life, the more I realize...

...that God is everywhere and the extraordinary is waiting quietly beneath the skin of all that is ordinary.  Light is in both the broken bottle and the diamond, the music is in both the flowing violin and the water dripping from the drainage pipe.  Yes, God is under the porch as well as on top of the mountain, and joy is in both the front row and the bleachers, if we are willing to be where we are." ~ Mark Nepo

"This planet is not terra firma....

It is a delicate flower and it must be cared for. It's lonely. It's small. It's isolated, and there is no resupply. And we are mistreating it. Clearly, the highest loyalty we should have is not to our own country or our own religion or our hometown or even to ourselves. It should be to, number two, the family of man, and number one, the planet at large. This is our home, and this is all we've got."

— Scott Carpenter, Mecury 7 astronaut, speech at Millersville University, Pennslyvania. 15 October 1992

Genetic Biology

“If we change our interaction with our environment, we change our genetic potential ….so there is nothing fixed in our biology. It’s always changeable. Since we are not fixed… all of a sudden you realize how powerful you are as an individual in controlling your gene expression rather than buying into belief of victims of genetic determination.” ~ Dr. Bruce Lipton

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., a pioneer in the new biology, is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. A cell biologist by training, receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, Bruce was on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and later performed groundbreaking stem-cell research at Stanford University. He is the best-selling author of The Biology of Belief and received the 2009 prestigious Goi Peace Award (Japan) in honor of his scientific contribution to world harmony.

The Rescuing Hug

Newborn twins, Kyrie and Brielle Jackson, born in October 1995, at Massachusetts Memorial Hospital. Each of the twins weighed two pounds at birth.  An article, "The Rescuing Hug," details the first week of their lives. Each were in their respective incubators, and one was not expected to live.  A hospital nurse, Gayle Kasparian, RN, fought against hospital rules, placing the babies together in one incubator.  When together they cuddled. In this picture, the healthier of the two throws an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace.  As a result of their being together again, the smaller baby's heart rate stablized and her temperature rose to normal, her health improved steadily thereafter as they stayed together in one incubator.

Turtles "High-Five" Just As People Do!

Imagine ...

"...a shift from I llness to WE llness" - the Interconnectedness of Being.

“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”  ~ Chief Seattle
