Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Hi Paula,

Absolutely! Anything is easier to face with enough money than without it.

Not sure anything external can "make" you happy, or for that matter "unhappy."

Hi Paula,

Along the lines of Norma Rae's post, I feel only WE have the power to make ourselves happy, or not!

For example, you can have a millionaire who is miserable because he is constantly worried about loosing money in the stock market, or through theft, or whatever. Or, you can have a millionaire who is happy by circulating his money (through purchases, etc, which keeps stores in business and people employed so they can feed their families, or donations, etc) with love and joy.

To me, its about self awareness and appreciation for whatever we are blessed with in our lives. Its about our perception which sends out an energy vibration that returns to us ... and only we have the power to determine that ... so, what do we choose to experience?

Love...Peg

Was listening to part of an interview Shirley had in 2009 with Lester Brown (whom I believe is discussed in The Secret Life of Plants, which I am finally reading . . . wasn't there a "Lester Brown" from the 40s who had a jazz orchestra, too?). I've only made it about 15 minutes into the interview, but in that 15 minutes, Shirley comments on the insanity of how we all run around working and worrying and scheming to accumulate more paper (money) that has absolutely no intrinsic value anyway.

I've often thought this about money, but now it's not even paper. My thoughts/comments on this insanity often is that I (and everyone else) work to move numbers from one column in my online bank account to another column. And this transaction of moving numbers from one column to another has value because why? It's like I am stuck in some online game of just moving numbers around. Insanity!

Now . . .I am off to my job so that I can put more numbers in one of my columns. . . On the way there, however, I will at least finish listening to the Lester Brown interview.

Namaste from the Midwest,
steph
