James Garner "What have I learned?"

What have I learned? I learned, at the age of fourteen, that I had to fight my own battles. That's when I made up my mind that nobody would ever step on me again.

If you survive combat, you think of every day after it as a gift. I don't think people appreciate life as much as those who've gone through that.

You have to take risks to get rewards. When you're standing on the edge of a cliff trying to get up the courage to jump off and fly, it always looks a lot farther down than you think.

People ask me what I'm proudest of, careerwise. They expect me to name a movie or a television show, but the thing I'm proudest of professionally is that I never kissed anyone's butt.

Success doesn't change people. If they get difficult and arrogant, they were that way before and just weren't in a position to show it.

I don't believe that nice guys finish last. I've known too many wonderful people who finished first because they had lots of help. The best way to accomplish your goal is to have other people pulling on the rope with you. If you have a team where everyone embraces the same general principles and tries to help one another, you have a much better chance of winning.

Is the audience always right? Noooo! Look at all the trash out there.

I've been married to the same woman for over half a century and the list of my leading ladies is a Hollywood Who's Who, but I don't claim to know anything about women. Half the time you think you know them, but you don't. All I know is, I love them. I love them all. But I'm afraid of them.

I think there's something out there bigger than we are, but I don't have a clue what it is.

Something funny happens as you get older. You loosen up. You get a little freer and a little braver. You don't hold back so much. You try not to get too high or too low. When your feelings go up and down that's called stress, and it's a killer. And you're not so insecure. Believe me, I am insecure.

At the end of the day when you put your head on your pillow there is only one person you had better please: yourself.

Prayers Answered, Vision Realized, Love Manifesting

Today I am glad to report that my dreams are coming true. My Vision is manifesting. My prayers have been answered. I've done the work. It's all documented and it is progressive.

When I realized at 47 that I had been living aimlessly, at the whims of others to "make money" - I decided to focus my Visions, round up the wagons of my life and hunker down to some REAL work. What followed was an intense period of re-programming. Then I began to envision and express The Decision in written form, and further begin to populate cyberspace with my creations.

Intercession - Embodiment

There are no interlopers between us and our Source. Lastly Jesus. And those that would position themselves to put Jesus Christ in a position of an interloper, a barrier between receiving, or allowing God's blessings to enter their lives are the most blasphemous, but also our greatest teachers of ignorance. (e.g. churches, priests, gurus, pharisees, etc.)

This is why Jesus got so vehement when he talked about them.

In the marketplace he could see "the future" in the now, what our confusion would to - our "pain and suffering" because he could feel it.

All this is fine and good, except if it takes us away from our most immediate and personal communion with God, Source, Love.

Our Breath.

That's why it is best not to try to think, untangle and "figure this all out."

It is simplest to just Consciously and Deeply Breathe it out - because God has already worked everything out and WE are on the ride.

As we personally own, do, be, experience, accept and allow this to be ours, and then share

- then we become the living embodiment of what Jesus demonstrated, share and pointed out in

John 20: 15-22

The living embodiment of the love of God, is us, as our breath - breathing us

Endowing, proportioning, perfectly, forever in One Breath.

The Deeper and more Consciously we breathe - the better the fire burns for endowing and purifying our living waters
   - this is the re-birth, the baptism that Jesus was inviting us to know, feel and experience

And the greatest part is we don't really have to do anything because this is what is happening to us - and it has always been in the works.

God truly does know, what God is doing.

The Mountain

I climbed to the top of the mountain,
to see what I could see,
to know what I could know,
to learn what I might learn,
to dream what I might dream
I guess because of my very nature.
What I saw was so astounding
What I learned was so profound
What I dreamed was so beautiful
And I looked and felt and smelled
Turning in each of the four directions
Beauty, wonder, immensity
Seeming no end to the experience
My mind swirled and danced
I had to share this message
This thing that I had found
My eyes and mind appreciating, creating
Knowing all that is around
Something inside, seeing outside
Both combined as one
One mind, one eye, one heart
One Love, One Breath
By myself it was so wonder-full
But then somewhat empty
So I thought, yearned, dreamed for some one
With which that I could share

God First

God, I put you first! Whether I had admitted it, or spoke it, you know that my heart has been aligned. I love you. I love life.

After reading Emmett Fox's essay "The Yoga of Love" I realize that my path has been to a pure state of love. I need not speak of it. I ask for the power and guidance to demonstrate it, to represent it, for love is the only substance and meaning.

I am eternally grateful for the experience of your love.

Every day my consciousness expands in knowing, and not-knowing, because the wonder is ever-expanding. I have spend many years in the desert of intellectualism, only to discover that all thought expands from source and is shared without regard to my ignorance.

As I open my heart, mind, soul and perceptions I find a new reality that results from experience.

If I am the least bit aware and attentive, I discover amazing new realities abounding. Thank your for your love. As I discard limited perception and open my mind to my heart's guidance, I find indescribable peace, joy and wonder.

How could all this be? How can I be? How could I have missed the simple perfection that surrounds me at all scales in myriad forms? Consciousness is an eternal playground.

As I learn that my mind is intended to partner with your heart, and my heart to rest, in that space it will regard itself no more in a place of desperate searching and seeking.

My thoughts recognize their place and are freed to contribute with efficiency and ease. My breath dances into my lungs, extends its wings into every cell of my body through your divine purpose. My mind with its wondrous resources aligns itself with that purpose to be you - Love.

Thank You divine, universal Love for allowing me to experience this Grand Adventure. I am your consciousness and I now commit to the design with deliberate and loving intent. Empower me to fulfill the privilege in a way that honors all that you are. Endow me with your knowing with each thought and action and breath that I take. I Love You!

Life



Not a "thinking" thing, it is a being, breathing thing - of course the intellect has a part to play, but it is not master. The Body is indicating that a centering must occur, to really enjoy the full fruits of our infinite endowment.

All that is required is Conscious, Deep, Appreciative Breathing - One at a Time, to show gratitude for the handle and endowment - 25,000 times a day.

By feeding the whole body, including the brain with adequate fuel (water is born of the fire) - the inherent benefits will be enjoyed and expanded upon - in a very personal experience. These benefits are: happiness, health, wealth, freedom, wisdom and sweetness.

Taking full ownership of our experience is key to expanding and gifting to "other selves" with permission to do same.

This whole process can be summed up in the simple phrase "Just Breathe" and the fullness of this will manifest like a million, billion trees that reside in the potential of a seed.

The great thing is, all of this was the intention of that which we all are, already.

The Power of Love

"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts, absolutely."

This is a common quote, that people suggest is profound.

But if Love is the only power, and love in un-corruptible - how could we say this?

The "power corrupts" quote is not true - or is it?

Marianne Williamson  wrote "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. (popularized by a speech by Nelson Mandela).

How could we possibly be afraid of our power?
Especially if the only true power is love?

The world creates stories, to teach us - about love - which is the power that sustains the Infinite Cosmos - it is God, THE POWER. (Goddess if you prefer)

These are all words. And the words express the power on Earth.

"And God said: in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God."

Notice "And God said . . ."!! - and then, notice who is doing all the talking now? (Jesus said "Ye are Gods.")

"The only sustainable cosmology is the one that embraces the Earth as a cosmic language lab fully loaded with all potential for evolving self consciousness skills and practices resulting in satisfying and fulfilling experiences." Desmond Donald Green

So if God is everything, and God is all power, And God is Love - there is really nothing that can be corrupted.

And there is nothing to fear! 

And, again, the only power.

So what might need to be "corrupted" is the story, idea, that love corrupts.

In my life Eye have sought the love that Eye can share. Eye have only found it IN me. Eye now call it the alter of my heart.

Eye would suggest that everyone dedicate themselves to seek, and Share, their power which is love.

You will find it riding on your breath.

That is how Source, Infinite Love, GODDESS delivers our love, our life, our words to US [Universal Sweetness].

Right IN OUR FACE - 25,000 times a day.

Tear down (corrupt) the stories that have held you away from your true power. Go pall mall, headlong through the "fear" that has kept you away from YOUR POWER.

Let go of your doubts, and judgments and Share what you discover.

- It is all yours and it is what the COSMOS is waiting for you to Share back.
