Daily Reminder # 457

This is not my own photo.... I borrowed it from  the YNN News Photo gallery
of the flood damage here in Upstate New York. This is looking like it may
match the devastating 200 year floods we had back in 2006.
The photographer is Justin Parsons

Much rain here. Up on my little hill, I am safe so far, but there is serious flooding in the towns around and in parts of Hancock. It's supposed to keep raining for three more days... and of course there are more hurricanes to come with more rain. Still, those in the GOP will continue to declare that climate change is some kind of Democratic plot. Strange world we live in.  Neale Donald Walsh has been on a roll the past couple of days.  This one is a profound truth that speaks to reality beyond war. I think it is just as true of emotional violence. One of the consistent themes of the Masters class tapes I've been listening to is that the energy you put out is profoundly important and comes back to you. The place I have the most difficulty applying this is in the realm of politics. I get so cranky. I lose my capacity for seeing the good. I try, but I succeed way less than I'd like to. Anyway.... here's Neale's message from God.

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
...that peace cannot come to this world until you are
convinced that violence will never produce it.

Hurt does not heal hurt. Violence will not bring an end
to violence. Help the world to understand this by
reacting differently, responding newly, when anger and
a need to hurt you is sent your way.

You will have such an opportunity in your life. And
probably, more than once. Do not miss the chance
to humbly send a message of love.

Love, Your Friend....
