- How Do You Feel?
By Swami Beyondananda
It’s a mad, mad, mad world all right. And what seems to keep the madness in place is this: Just because we keep doing the same crazy things over and over, we begin to imagine those things are “sane.”
Take war. Please! Especially that most oxymoronic one, the holy war in the Holy Land. Holy cow-pie, that’s wholly insane.
I’ve said it before, but maybe it bears repeating—It could very well be that the Ten Commandments are just too much to bite off all at once.
Maybe we should start with One Suggestion: “We’re all in it together.” Each and every one of us is totally unique, just like everyone else. We are all one with the same One: The Universal Oneness. The Universe has us surrounded, we might as well surrender.
People ask me all the time if I’m a creationist or an evolutionist, and I tell them, “both.” We humans were created to evolve, otherwise Jesus would have said, “Now don’t do a thing until I return!”
Maybe it’s time we children of God finally grow up and become adults of God and realize we are the Creator’s creation created to create. In other words, we’re not here to just earn God’s love, we’re here to spend it!
What if human society made the collective choice to live as if we’re all in it together? Imagine a world gone sane. Imagine a new mission to conquer inner space and achieve humanifest destiny–manifesting our destiny as a humanity–to re-grow the Garden from the grassroots up, and have a heaven of a time doing it.

The Acorn Analogy
By Suzanne E. Harrill
Deep inside you know how to be you, as
an acorn knows how to be a mighty oak.
The acorn does the best it can do
at each stage of growth along its life-path.
Even if the early start was less than perfect
the eager oak accelerates its desire to grow
every time that it has nurturing from nature:
sunlight, rainwater, and soil nutrients.
YOU are like the acorn, doing your best under
the conditions in which you are growing.
Nurture yourself with awareness, acceptance,
love, self-respect, and self-esteem,
then watch you grow towards
your true Self!
