Finished last day at work. Birthday started during my shift. Time change has thrown me off. It's been a good day to mark the 44th orbit around the Sun of my life. At friends' now for dinner. They are watching the Exorcist Prequel. I'd rather not, so I'm writing this blog. Heard Berlioz's Symphony Fantasque (sp) on the way over. Just the last 8 minutes, but even that fragment was beautiful! Only thing more beautiful than a Classical Symphony is a woman. :-) Only a few woman are as timeless though.
Hope Jade gets her disability check in. I promised to give them the money if they don't get the check in. Guess we'll know in a few days what the future holds there. For now though, it's been a nice birthday! Quiet. Nice warm day, not too hot, not too cold - just right! A Goldilock's Day!
Brought Richard Pryor DVD's with me. Hope they watch them instead of another horror flick. Maybe more later.

Beautiful Fall Days
This week is so nice! The sky is brilliant blue. The sunshine is extraordinary. I've been happy. The cats have been happy. I've spent way too much on gift certificates to pure strangers and on books to read for myself, but oddly enough, it makes me more happy. I gave Terry Pratchett's latest book, Thud!, to Brian to read. I have Neil Armstrong's biography to ponder. My 44th birthday comes up Sunday. Unfortunately, I'll likely be sleeping through most of it. Well, that's half true. From midnight to 7:00 AM, I'll be finishing up my shift at work, then come home and sleep, then over to Brian and Jade's for dinner and most likely a chocolate birthday cake. For now though, need to pay bills, get cleaned up, do laundry and clean the apartment a bit. It's good to be alive. Wish I had someone to share it with, but the furry children will have to do. I think everything will be alright. I read Eckhart Tolle's latest book and passed out several copies to friends. He doesn't seemed concerned that humanity will wipe itself out, so hopefully he knows the outcome. But he also knows the ultimate truth, that nothing out here matters all that much. That this world is a temporary manifestation of the Source of all things and Life itself, what most religions call "God". What a misused word. It points to something so great and loving and like most things the word becomes corrupted over time by men and their petty plans. Perhaps, we will finally understand the reality to which the word God points within my lifetime. I suppose that even more suffering is in store for humanity and that it is required to awaken enough of us to "God". I hope we choose to embrace the Light and not the Darkness. What a beautiful day! I am blessed! Whoever reads this, may you be blessed too!

Awaken! The end is near if we don't awaken soon...
Spoke with Uncle John who lives in England. Illuminating discussion. While deathly ill, he had what seems to be a revelation. He has decided to write his book about the New Earth that is to come - the social and political structures that will arise after the dissolution of the current structures. They will be saner and will promote the flowering of human consciousness that is occurring now. While Eckhart Tolle espouses the completely spiritual, inner transformation via objective observation of one's own mind, my Uncle believes that the inner transformation can be helped from without by external factors and those factors are forming as I write this. There is a sense of urgency here. Mankind is on the brink of desroying itself. My Uncle believes that within 50 years, we will affect the global climate to such an extent that it will cause the rapid demise of humanity. We have only 25 years to correct our madness and begin fixing our collective unconscious behavior and damage. There is good news though. Only 6 Enlightened individuals are necessary to catalyze the transformation of human consciousness to the next evolutionary stage - the stage where we aren't governed by our minds but transcend them. Three such individuals exist on the planet now. I'm know that two must be in Vancouver, British Columbia. Perhaps all three are there. So we just need three more people to consciously give up their mental anguish and suffering. What my Uncle told me distressed me greatly. I once attended a lecture by the former Editor-in-Chief of Scientific American at the CSEOL banquet at UCLA in 1994 or so. He figured that we had about 200 years before we were in trouble, but we needed to start putting long range solutions into effect soon. Another member of CSEOL mentioned later that the speaker was being very optimistic and confronted him about it. The speaker acknowledged the man's argument and said that pessimistically, we only maybe had 125 years or so. If my Uncle is correct, then even the worst case scenario is off by a factor of two in its time estimate. He's never been wrong to my knowledge. Of course, on a cosmic scale, nothing real will be lost if the worst occurs. We would all come back in a different form and take up where we left off as life attains self-consciousness and continues to evolve. I like being human and it seems like a colossal wasted effort if we kill ourselves off due to insanity, greed and utter stupidity. I hope that we all awaken from our dream of separateness and loneliness very, very soon.

A Day in the Life of...
Well, haven't been on here for a while. Still employed ...Thank the Universe! Still not enlightened, but am making space for when it will happen. Katrina has come and gone. Texas will suffer the task of caring for the poor of New Orleans. The hurricane may be a blessing in disguise for the city. It is yet to be seen though. Gas prices are high. We are being monitored at work ever more stringently. We are now having to do AUP notifications for clients which is a bad idea. Half of those poor couls are infected with some worm that is using their system for spam proxy or some such. It's all just a mess. Jade Wood is suing ACS and her lawyers have finally woken up and smelled MONEY! It's incredible. A month ago, she was still depressed and hurting from knee replacement surgery, then MetLife cancels her disability policy. Bad idea! She got angry and this is one woman you don't anger. She is now suing the insurance company and ACS for fraud and the lawyer says that her case is solid. Perhaps one day, she'll actually get her settlement. :-) Perhaps one day, Brian and Jade will pay me back for all the times I gave them money to tide them over to payday. :-) I've lost count of what I've given them, but it's got to be around $2000. Well, I knew then that they probably weren't going to be able to pay me back. What are friends for. Not much more to add. The world is warmer. More polar bears died this year due to drowning. They were unable to swim to land. Meanwhile, politicians claim that there is no global warming and they've tried to make global warming into a political issue when it's a very real issue that will probably affect everyone on the planet. Reality trumps politics everytime. When that happens, leaders usually lose more than public opinion. They usually lost their lives in the past. After all, they were closest to the Gods and in the good times, the Gods favored them. The bad times meant that they were being punished. Amazing how people say they want to live the Bible, but we don't live like those people lived. Otherwise, there would be no political dissent, no choice, no interpretation of God's word, but some priest telling us what "God" said. Now we just need to make one more change in perception as a race and move to the next stage of human evolution before it's too late. I hope we make it.
