Eight Gifts That Don't Cost a Cent

This simple checklist can help measure how you are nurturing your relationships.

The Gift of Listening

But you must really listen. Don't interrupt, don't daydream, and don't plan your response. Just listen.

The Gift of Affection

Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

The Gift of Laughter

Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

The Gift of Solitude

There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone.
Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

The Gift of a Favor

Every day, go out of your way to do something kind. Good deeds are cool.

The Gift of a Written Note

It can be a simple "Thanks for your help" note, or a longer expression of your appreciation for that person being in your life. A brief handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime.

The Gift of a Compliment

A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super job," or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition

The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone.

These are eight important ways we can contribute toward whole and healthy relationships. They cost nothing, yet they may well be the most valuable gifts we can ever offer another person.

Love Is The New Religion

Love Is The New Religion

On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and
things seem dark
But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening
An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being
called to a higher light
It is a silent revolution
From the inside out
From the ground up

It is time for me to reveal myself
I am an embedded agent of an secret, undercover
Global operation
A spiritual conspiracy
We have sleeper cells in every nation on the planet

You won't see us on the T.V.
You won't read about us in the newspaper
You won't hear about us on the radio

We don't seek any glory
We don't wear any uniform
We come in all shapes and sizes
Colors and styles

Most of us work anonymously
We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture
of the world
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages,
tribes and remote islands

You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice
We go undercover
We remain behind the scenes
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done

Occasionally we spot each other in the street
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way so no one will notice

During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs
But behind the false storefront at night is where the real work takes

Some call us the "Conscious Army"
We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and
We follow, with passion and joy
Our orders from the Central Command
The Spiritual Intelligence Agency

We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no ones is looking
Kind words
Meditation and prayer
Social activism
Random acts of kindness

We each express ourselves in our own unique ways with our own unique
gifts and talents

"Be the change you want to see in the world"
That is the motto that fills our hearts
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place
We know that quietly and humbly we have the power of all the oceans

Our work is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains
It is not even visible at first glance
And yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries
to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century

You don't have to be a highly educated person
Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it

It comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings

Be the change you want to see in the world
Nobody else can do it for you

We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have....
All are welcome...
The door is open

-Brian Piergrossi
(From the book "The Big Glow")

Poetry Emotion

Take with you words, strong words of courage.,

Words that have wings!..

Take with you words, words that know you.,

Words that are sacred as healing waters,

Pure as Light, and beautiful as morning,

Take with you tall words, words that reach up,

And growing words, with deep life within them.

Take with you words, words that know you.

There is nothing I can give you which you have not,

but there is much that while I cannot give you,

you can take:

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find

rest in today. Take Heaven.

No peace lies in the future which is not hidden

in this present instant. Take Peace.

The gloom of the world is but a shadow.,

behind it, yet within reach, is joy. Take Joy.

We search the world for truth, we cull

The good, the true, the beautiful,

From graven stone and written scroll,

And all old flower-fields of the soul.,

And, weary seekers of the best,

We come back laden from our quest,

To find that all the sages said

Is in the book our mothers read.

* What lies behind us and what lies before us..

are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. *


~ All phrases, quotes and poetic emotion are the works of others, but their names need not apply simply because that is not the point in sharing at this moment., it is the messages within them that matters the most. I would never take credit for any of them although I would be lying if I said I was not inspired by them. Which I am very much so inspired by each and every one for individual reasons. ~

Blessings all and always keep safe

Love, Courage, Peace xo

In the Beginning?

It's one thing to discuss and debate the endless theory of Spirituality, but giving due consideration to the 'chicken or the egg' scenario, might not be essential before going down that road., to consider which comes first: Spirituality or the manifestation of mankind.

Beyond the scope of creative and evolutionary processes, already considered most likely to have brought about the human species and that are now well established and circulated on the planet. There are numerous theories put forward by well versed academics, such being uncovered by wandering along countless corridors of consideration. And also pertaining to more diverse hypothetical evolutionary processes.

Given, most accept the wide spread findings or theories of modern science a more logical or practical means of evolution, others consider it worthwhile to explore more diverse avenues of thought. And this, that might throw a different color light on the creative and 'growth option' process. With that in mind, I am taking a look at some more diverse ideas, and put them forward by some theorists, one of whom is Thomas Gold (1920 - 2004), whose fields of expertise were noted for: Astrophysics, Astronomy, Biophysics, Cosmology, Geophysics and Aerospace engineering. A somewhat diverse proposal that was placed forward by Professor Gold, labeled 'The Garbage Theory', suggested that life on Earth might have evolved from a portion of waste products (material type undisclosed) dumped on Earth many years ago by other explorers. He certainly didn't stand alone in or with the reasoning that this form of incarnation may have taken place. From a British history channel documentary series, the program looked into the practicalities of the ancient beings theory. Those who have oriented their minds in a way that will allow them to consider such prospects. Diverse as some might be, the considerations of the many are more likely to reveal the truths that will ring clear to the few. Personally, I will keep my ears, eyes and mind wide open as I continue to search for and try to uncover more that supports a more radical approach to my being here.

Another contribution in thought, Archaeology has really brought new evidence to the past theories of mankind's creation and evolution. It is rather sad that other influences of governments, science and such seem to delay sharing much of this new information with the world. I have the opinion that creation from what was already, is a much longer in the past than previously thought. All potentials are possible and the many choices determines mankind's growth patterns. It seems to me though that mankind had to become more 'aware' of these patterns before it could start recognizing the 'need' for self accountability on this planet. To review history, we can find many events were civilizations came and went without a thought of self accountability. So in this aspect then you may see that mankind evolving into a civilization that is recognizing to the consequences of not being self accountable. However, greed and other errs of society have it moving at a snails pace. I had heard in conversations in one moment that we are behind in evolving. Maybe so. All the individual souls that are progressing and evolving, of this.. there is no doubt. But when the soul finds itself in place, it then also possesses a higher level of intelligence and can make choices and decisions that will either cast it down into a lower life form again or open the way for even higher and finer levels of development. We are the architects of our own destiny. The set of desires we cultivate during the course of this life are already forming our next. Our bodies are temporary but we are eternal.

Scientists and Universities all around the world have been trying for over 100 years to prove that evolution is the mechanism that created life, yet.. no scientific evidence has been found. There are theories of where life came from, one theory of evolution says that the first life came into existence four or five billion years ago as a result of billions of years of accidental, random atomic collisions. Another, that life came into existence through a creator, creating life, and also Darwin's theory of natural selection. If you may not very well know how life originated, and although there has been a variety of experiments that has been shown to us, some of the possibilities, some will remain in ignorance. Some, in an enormous amount of time, effort, and funds have been spent trying to learn how evolution brought about the existence of the first living organism. But although some beliefs sound very logical, the only thing that anyone has provided are merely statements of theory. The rest will be absolute truth.

There are multiple avenues that branch out from the tree, but there can only be one historical path that life took and as yet we do not know which of these avenues will lead us through the maze and which will end up in a blind alley. At the end of the day, we have to admit that we're looking through the glass. We have our own hints, we have geologic record that tells us that life formed early. And the trouble with a 'nothing's new' scenario (in context with) is that the written word can be interpreted in many different ways thus making it idealistic for some misrepresentation or certain levels of sculpting to take place. In any hope and chance to anything including the imaginative one can perceive. But there again, then such to those who will have methods to make the subject clearer, if we are to allow more free thinking and expression to have its way, or day.

To this place where I now am, and the person I am..

They are in no specific date order.. more like the pieces of a puzzle that need to be put together by anyone who's interested enough to find out how I reached the point in time., where I am now., and the events to such has led me to be..

Some parts relate to early childhood, others more later in years, some are just thoughts that have passed through my thoughts conjured up by brief memories that sprung to mind for no particular reason., or were even inspired by the words and thoughts of others.

Who can say why the images of life, that are (in reality) life in the making with each passing moment come into being.. Maybe its not for us (as individuals) at all ~ more so., they might be hidden messages, intended for others, who need a new direction in life and are pondering on what to do, or which way to turn.

I see our journey as a path. Many people say that this path leads us to Perfection. Not sure about that. All I know is that each step is the perfect stage for learning something that enables you to give the next step no matter where you want to go. Sometimes the teachings are not always easy and we change our ways many of times. Sometimes we intend to take shortcuts but all we can get are long detours. (and sometimes that's a good thing) Sometimes the path is full of stones and at other times it is full of flowers. We are all on this forever changing journey, forever growing, forever changing, and during its course come to many destinations, each merely a short stop signifying a new beginning.

We all experience success and failure, joy and heartbreak, the journey never stops. Then we begin wandering down an untraveled road, no maps, no directions or road signs. And innocent of any concept of corruption, but along the way we learn, gaining knowledge. And some of that knowledge can lead to choices or situations outside of our own making where temptation lays in wait to entrap. But it is difficult to say what any one of us would do in any one situation., or to judge the actions of others when faced with an easy way out without first walking in their shoes. And all we can ever do is the best that we can at any one given moment. Everyone has a purpose and we are all unique doing our own thing in our own way, having respect for ourselves promotes respect for others.

The life of an individual is like the seasons of the year: each with its peculiar beauty. Whatever the season..

Poetry Emotion

My music goes with you for cure of humanity's wrong.
To invert the affront when you fail to sing my song.
The script codes on the surface are in line with time.
The spirals twist and unfold to form a line.

Take a walk in these fields where all things form.
Seek the root of the atoms which stray the norm.
Levels of esters in growth as enzymes catalyze.
Amino acids build the molecules for protein we synthesize.

Learn from the message inlaid, how to genetically realign.
Growth of the plant and man are intertwined.
Primal DNA is gift of Mother Earth no man claimed.
All memory of time in soil or script in stone are here engrained.

Man's sight to enable the brain's circuitry recognitions.
A stimulus for our thoughts cognitive revelations.
Messages on Earth's canvas guide us in time of need.
Historical repetition of linguistics mankind must heed.

Renditions by an unknown artist paint a lost memory now past.
A forgotten language in the shadows time has outcast.
Earth's mass must reciprocate unto Light's energy demand.
The black of night absorbs in silence the need of reprimand.

Empty spaces hold, contained rest energies.
Where diffractions of the Light bends for gravity to appease.
Perfusing now these long forgotten links to thought in time.
Awakens simplicity to complex reason without rhyme.

Take a ninety degree angle, lay it on a line and a convex curved.
The geometric design signifies what the Egyptian long ago learned.
To heal the Earth is to free the Mind.
Absorb the Sun, to reach height of our climb.

Evolutionary leaders sing a song of mutant codes.
Evolution without time is song only time's past knows.
The Earth sings the song whose harmonic is for the Cosmic race.
Therein is so defined, the music humanity's imprint could not erase.
