Old Books

Ask someone ahead of you in years what they have read in their lifetime that changed them for the better.

You’ll find out a couple of things in the book(s) they share…

  1. If they’re saying that it has stuck with them then time has tested it to be true. Sticky words are good words that always linger around those who’ve had an encounter with them.
  2. Whatever they recommend, they’re looking to save you from something, align your interior world, or to take you somewhere beautiful. Thank them in advance for the bridge, the keys, or the door they have shared with you.

Asteroids, Stars, and the Love of God. On Being with Krista Tippett

Did you know The Vatican has an observatory? Yes, even the Pope is wondering where we are, what’s around us, and how the Universe is expanding. Listen to this conversation from On Being with Krista Tippett as she discusses the stars and the love of God with Brother Guy Consolmagno (Director of the Vatican Observatory) and Father George Coyne (Former Director of the Vatican Observatory).

Sorry, Einstein. Quantum Study Suggests ‘Spooky Action’ Is Real. New York Times

Things get really weird and really awesome at the subatomic and quantum level. This article in the New York Times shows how scientists at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands reported that they had conducted an experiment that confirms one of the more mysterious claims of quantum theory — that objects separated by great distance can instantaneously affect each other’s behavior. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/22/science/quantum-theory-experiment-said-to-prove-spooky-interactions.html?_r=1


In the end, it’s music up there.

Look up and listen close.

Unnamed poem read and written by Ashton Gustafson

Sometimes it takes a billion stars to get the point across.

They shine the way, call our names, and beg us to come on.

There will be uncertainty on the way to Eternity.

But I believe that up His sleeve Divinity holds beauty.

Sometimes our songs can right our wrongs and say what words can’t say.

When our melodies make jubilee that’s the story of our days.

There will be uncertainty on the way to Eternity.

But when poetry lacks symmetry that’s where you’ll find its beauty.

Sometime it takes a billion storms for God to fill the seas.

Could the same be true for the me and you we call Humanity?

There will be uncertainty on the way to Eternity.

But I believe that up His sleeve Divinity holds beauty.

Vitamin See

For those of us blessed with vision, so much of our experiences in life hinges in our eyes.

If you want to be a skeptic, you will find endless reasons to be skeptical.

If you want to be a pessimist, you will find plenty to be pessimistic about.

What we see will be predicted by what we want to see and why we want to see it.

Jesus once said, “Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar.” Matthew 6:22

Light > Dank
