We are all on a quest for meaning and alignment

When to light a candle

The events of the past few days have left me wondering about our world.  Three young women held hostage and tortured for ten years in a basement- in Cleveland, Ohio? By a bus driver?  This world seems filled up with madness and it sometimes seems like it just keeps on coming. 

I am not a counselor, but I play one on TV

My many years as a massage therapist have helped me listen to others very deeply.  I have taken myself to therapy several times, sometimes for years at a time, in order to become my more authentic self.  It is wonderful work and I am thankful for it.  One thing I have learned in all that time is that things that are overwhelming need to be put in some sort of container.  

The mind is going to worry

It is the nature of the mind to have a problem.  It always has a problem.  That is not something that is likely to change any time soon.  But we can direct that worry.  The beauty of worry is that it is just energy, just like anything else.  It is thought spinning its wheels.  If we let those spinning wheels have some direction, then they might actually get us somewhere.

Time to light a candle

Each day, I spend an hour or two on my computer, either typing up blog posts or watching Netflix or just surfing.  I have a candle behind me on my altar.  Now, for that hour or two that I am on the computer, I light that candle.  I put all the worries I have into it- whether it be someone I love who is ill, or who has lost someone special or some world event.  I let that hour or two have an element of prayer and wishing the best for the situations and people that I put into the candle.  You can bet those three girls and that little girl- and even that man who held them hostage- will be in that candle tonight.

And then it's bedtime

At bedtime, I blow the candle out, asking the best for all those I have wished for. The smell of the candle wafts up to my nose, I see the smoke lift up toward heaven, and I know I will light it again tomorrow.  In this way I find some peace.  I turn off the light, climb into bed, and I sleep.

I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what's the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

So to save that power, science made this machine, which does the same work with lesser power and time. The news and media was involved it was a huge spectacle. Wheel center caps not only complete the overall look of a wheel but they also protect the center lug nut of vehicles that do have them. In this way, even in less favorable geological conditions it is possible to continue with the planned activities. Promotional stubby holders are quite popular these days.

After this, the sealed tube should be lowered to precision weighing table and the product to be dispensed through the long conical tube in the center of the bag. Next should be the boxing and shipping processes.
