May I Suggest? – by Kat McCarthy

That you love with complete abandon.
That you create like you are the creator.
That you cook like you are cooking for royalty.
That you speak like you can never be hurt.
That you play like you never have to work.
That you breathe like it gives you life.
That you dream like anything is possible.IMG_2718b
That you sing like you were an angel.
That you relax like you have nothing to do.
That you read like the story is alive.
That you walk like you have somewhere to go.
That you laugh like it’s the funniest thing ever.
That you work like you love what you do.
That you listen like there is no other sound.
That you pay attention like it will save your life.
That you learn like it will save your future.
That you be the friend you wish you had.

Soul Stirrings – By Bob Rush

Once again the White Rabbit, aka Bob Rush, is a bit slow to the party. I think that is how I seem to operate. I’ll just try to Zen it and not worry so much. Anyway, since I missed last month, I’m am glad to get back in the swing of things. Hope everybody is off to a rollickin good start to 2015. After the hell of a roller coaster ride I had in 2014, this year is bound to be full of magic. Keep the faith!!!

The Answer is Retreat – by Mindy A. Early


As the world gets faster and the amount of connections and information we experience increases every day, so does the number of times we hear how important is to unplug. “You have to make time to take time,” might be a message you’ve received lately, or perhaps more “me time” is at the top of your resolutions for 2015. Find silence, find stillness, find serenity, these admirable goals are things that many of us yearn for amidst the hustle of the modern day. The question is, how do we achieve them?

Can we recommend? – By Kristine Grün

A recommendation is often given as a guide to action.
But do we always know what to recommend? and what gives us the ‘right’ to give recommendations, advise, in certain areas? People are so different and experience life so differently. There are often two sides to every story, two answers to every question.
I believe that there is not only one answer one solution, to anything.

Come Saturday Morning… By Annette

I like to spend Saturday mornings with my favorite coffee, a contended kitty cat and the joy of wicked good music, why? Because the combination is peace-filled to me and when I am peace-filled, so is my world. There is a wealth of peace to be found in each of these activities and that is precisely why I choose them. Of course there are those who might choose tea over coffee or a dog instead of a cat and to that I say, GREAT! If it makes you happy, generates some peace in your world, have a ball!!

Let There Be Light – by Brian Escobar

The other day, while binge-watching holiday movie specials on TV, I came across one of my all time favorite films – Harry Potter. It had been a while since I last saw it but this time around I was looking at it with a different perspective. For example, It came to my attention that with the wave of a wand and some words that rhymed, the witches and wizards could make magic despite space and time. The only real thing they needed was a clear, strong intention and some sort of physical movement or symbol to represent it. Sometimes it would be dangerous situations that would bring out their best, but so long as they were confident in what they were doing, it didn’t matter if it looked perfect.

My Stamp of Approval – By Wayne

My Stamp of Approval

The word declare is this month’s theme, I will attempt to use it as a verb without an object. In other words I will emphatically state a declaration that has recently come to me. It has been part of my mindset forever, but now it has jumped out and made itself prominent.

One Crumb Could Be One’s Feast


 

I was swimming in the pool today, as I do almost every other day, and it came to me how blessed I was to be there. I remembered when I was a child how happy and excited I was being able, once in a great while, to jump in at a jam packed public pool in my poor neighborhood, what a joy that was. Now, years later, I was swimming in an empty beautiful pool all to myself. The sun was shinning, the water was clean and clear enough for me to see my feet. How much more could anyone want I thought as I frolicked in the water.

Let’s declare a happy New Year – by Kristine Grün

Declarations have been part of our world for decades.

We have Human Rights declarations in..most of the World. People declare independence. Presidents declare war, declare victory and peace. We have doctors declaring people dead, when they pass away and we declare winners in sport games on TV. Our bosses declare the extra

Mastering the Possibilities – by Nancy Zimmerman


As I looked at the theme on possibilities, I couldn’t help but remember the old Master Card commercial, “Master the Possibilities.”  In that particular case, they were wanting you to use the card to obtain your dreams.  I imagine it was an extremely effective tag line, after all, it is one I still remember to this day.  It was a powerful statement that led to powerful thoughts — master the possibilities, with master getting the emphasis.  We all hold onto the hopes that we will master the possibilities that are presented to us in life.

Whatever you say… – by David Franklin Farkas

Declare…
 ,
We all have a sense of this word
as stating something in an emphatic, solemn and / or forceful way. But, it’s origin is interesting.
 .
 The prefix de, in Latin, indicates thoroughly. The Latin Clarus means ‘clear,’ and the related word Clarare means ‘make clear.’ So the Latin word Declarare, became the Middle English word Declare. Meaning, to make thoroughly clear.

An Inquisitive Mind is Nothing To Waste! – by Annette

So, what is ‘claring’ anyway?  I mean seriously, when we use the word DECLARE what are we saying?  Are we taking something away and if so what are we taking away?  For example, when we de-frag a computer we are taking away things that are hindering its performance.  When we de-clutter, we are removing clutter.  Hence the initial question.

My Declaration 2015 – By Lee Pryke

This is the time of the year when we reflect on where we are and how much closer we have grown towards our purpose and vision for ourselves. We busy ourselves writing down affirmations and thoughts about what we want to happen and ponder over why we didn’t achieve others.
If what we think about we manifest and we thought a lot about having
