The Weekly Beach Dance
It’s a group thing
The Sound of Silence
And the sound of water
An Atypical Fire Drill
Kids say the weirdest things
Breaking Couch News
From the Twisted News Network
A weird winner
Farmer Joe And why…
Francesca had been trying to get her new boyfriend Chad to come with her to the weekly Beach Dance since they first got together but it was not easy.
“I don’t dance. I’m not comfortable. I don’t know how to dance. Dancing out of doors? Who are these people? Are they a bunch of hippies? I don’t have the right shoes…”
Francesca kept begging him to go and Chad starting running out of excuses. Then Chad made the mistake of inviting Francesca to go with him to a basketball game. Francesca hated basketball. …
Lovely article, Katrina.
When Rene DesCartes said, "I think therefore I am," he did a grave disservice to humankind. We spend way too much time in left-brained rational thinking.
And yes, we also spend too much time in emotional reactivity.
The big problem is that we don't know the difference between feeling and emotion. They are two very different things. Emotions are chemical and true feeling is electrical. Emotions are horizontal in nature and true feeling is vertical. Emotions originate within our bodies and true pure feeling originates from outside of us (from our Source). While there are scores of…
Jaspar walked in the cool night air to the meeting hall. He took a seat near the back; far from the stage. He had made a commitment to himself to come each week and listen to the speakers but he was not very excited by it. Every story seemed like just a different version of the same old story.
Each week members of the group would take the stage and talk about how they overcame their personal problems and their perceived adversaries to their problems in order to achieve some perceived notion of success.
How boring their lives would be…
Have you ever watched a movie that you are positive you have never seen before and then about seven-eighths of the way through the movie you suddenly realize that you have indeed seen it before?
That happened to me a few days ago. It was rather irritating. How could I watch through seven-eighths of the movie without remembering that I had seen it before? Was I quasi-comatose the first time I saw it? It was not that long ago that I saw it. Was there some sort of serious neuronal synapse failure going on in my noggin? Was Alzheimer’s rearing…
The children had gone through fire drills before. They knew what to do so the evacuation of the school building went very smoothly without incident. It was as everyone got out into the school yard that panic began to set in.
Why was the sky purple? And why was there a murmuration of thousands of birds in the sky just above the school yard? And what was that rumbling sound?
The children asked but the teachers had no answers. Some of them were frantically searching for answers on their smart phones but the phones proved to be not so smart…
You know that phrase, ‘When hell freezes over?’
Well, it just happened.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like living in the middle of an ice age? Have you ever played that scenario out in your mind? Were you ever motivated to prepare for it? Have you been too preoccupied with thinking about global warming? How much thermal underwear do you own?
Yesterday it got all the way down to 17 degrees (Fahrenheit) in Houston, Texas. Believe it or not, that was a record low temperature. The city practically shut down. People were besides themselves and had no…
THIS IS TNN
Good Day. This is Beverly Whiteteeth reporting from TNN’s world headquarters in Elko, Nevada.
We have two giant breaking news stories to report today; stories that could influence the lives of most all Americans.
Human evolution has been a rather slow process spanning many tens of thousands of years. But in modern times that evolution has been greatly accelerated thanks to technological advancements. It is a well-known fact that human consciousness was intensely heightened by the invention of the TV.
In the past humans just sat around with nothing to do but once there was a TV…
I have always been a rock freak. As a kid I was always picking up rocks from the ground to examine them. The really cool ones I would put in my pocket and take them home. This irritated the heck out of my mother but that is not why I did it. I just loved rocks.
Looking back at my childhood love of rocks I now see how appropriate it was that for around five years in my mid to late thirties I ended up working as a stonemason. I got to build things out of rock; rock walls, stone…
She was there from the very beginning
From the age of two or maybe three
She took me on a tour of my very own body
Showing me everything that was within me
She showed me what I was made of
She showed me the cells
Flowing through my body
The blood gushing through my heart
She showed me her place
Within my being
She showed me the love
I was built from
As I grew
She grew with me
She filled my inner being
She slowly filled my outer being
And this is where the struggle began Where the…
