HURRICANE HEELS

Interesting article that digs beneath the surface of Melania Trump's choice of clothing and shoes as she accompanied #45 to view the devastation in Houston following Hurricane Harvey.

AWED BY THE ECLIPSE

I expected the solar eclipse to be cool. I did not expect to be moved to tears at the moment the moon slipped fully in front of the sun and our earthly landscape turned twilight dusky and cool. 

Then the moon's continued orbit revealed the sun was still shining. But for a few moments, I was reminded our Universe is coordinated by an Essence infinitely more powerful than any human ego trying to bend this Earth to its desires. 

We are given chance after chance after chance to learn this lesson. Perhaps all we need to do is quit flailing about in our egos and remain still enough to listen to our souls. 


Then we can celebrate, as many did with shouts of joy and amazement--and fireworks--at that moment of totality during the eclipse. In that moment, were we also in total alignment with that infinitely powerful Essence?

FIGHTING VIOLENCE WITH THOUGHTFUL ACTION

I am deeply saddened not only by what happened in Charlottesville over the weekend, but the response of some on social media condemning anyone who does not feel and respond with the same level of anger and hatred they do.

While I can appreciate passion about a cause, is it really beneficial to condemn anger, hatred and violence with anger, hatred, name-calling and libel? 

I much more appreciate thoughtful analysis and peaceful but prepared action, as described in these articles:

--Clergy who stared down white supremacists...

--A personal point of view from a clergyman who was there:

--An article form Allen West about not "cherry-picking" which groups to condemn for violence
