For me ... the more updated tech gets - the better. Last week, the Steve Harvey show had a segment about surviving without technology. A couple in their 40's, from Silicon Valley, and their eight-year-old daughter, spent five days somewhere in the woods of California with no technology to bond. The husband is a VP at a tech company though I forget which one. At one point I thought the wife was going to lose it, but they survived. At the end of the show the couple showed how they bonded with their daughter by spending uninterrupted time together. It may seem like an interesting experiment - but technology saves lives and brings needed information. To use a paper map when you have GPS seems silly to me - not to mention everything else that is part of most of our lives and society today. What if there was an earthquake in California while they were away - they never would have known. But then again - the film crew I'm sure all had the latest technology in case of emergency. All the couple had to do was take their daughter away and only use their cell phones and other products when necessary. This is why reality TV is not my thing as it is staged. In the end I'm sure the family was happy when they got home and had their tech stuff again.
The most lavish wedding to come along since William and Kate took place Saturday when Kim Kardashian married Kanye West at the historic 16th century Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, on Saturday in an intimate (but not so secret!) ceremony which was attended by the couple's nearest and dearest. To other readers of this blog who are getting married now - and their families - congratulations to all.
Memorial Day is the last Monday of May. It honors
those who died in military service to their country.
Memorial Day: 7 Facts About the Holiday
Live Science - May 24, 2014
Sunday May 25, 2014
Wednesday I watched the ships arrive for Fleet Week 2014. My building is not seen but is just to the left of the Verrazano Bridge on the photo above. The troops have been having fun visiting New York City, appearing on talk shows among other venues.
A ship of any kind is a metaphor for one's life path. Has your ship come in? Metaphors: Is your life a Battle Ship? Cruiser? Sail Boat? Other? I feel like a submarine in the flow of the collective unconscious - with the eye of my periscope peering out at the world - able to turn 360°. I also feel like a different type of ship - a consciousness spaceship - watching life in the hologram from above.
Fleet Week is part of Memorial Day Weekend as many people make plans - consciousness now shifting to summer mode/code which includes - travel, concerts, celebrations, and in general - their next phase of change.
In some areas, school is over and graduation has happened. Thursday, my grandson Giovanni, in Chandler, Arizona, graduated from middle school. He's off to high school in mid-July. In other states, like NY and NJ, proms, senior trips and activities, and graduation are all part of June's activities.
What are parents asking during their readings? If they have a child who is graduating now, they want to know what comes next, in the reality where people grow up later than in prior generations. This has to do with longevity and the fact that everything starts later in life - marriage(s), family, career(s) ... nothing is as we conceive to be in the years ahead ... contingent upon the hologram continuing.
One of the biggest problems for parents is teens graduating High School who are not emotionally or intellectually programmed to attend college or trade school. Some of these teens may be lucky enough to get jobs from friends or family - if they even keep them. Others are going to stay home and do nothing as parents go crazy. This is not new as we look at the patterns and now recognize "the great divide" by those who are emotionally stable, positive, and move forward and others who are permanently programmed for challenges.
Where do the bullies in school come from and what happens to them? They generally come from abusive backgrounds, display emotional problems in childhood, and though we may think they will outgrow their issues, they definitely carry them into adulthood.
Some High School grads may work at teen jobs to save money then move out or travel to find themselves. Many adults are in that same place - life is boring, depressive, meaningless, and frustrating. They want to retire from it all and find their greater purpose or just play - especially if they have been caretakers.
Caretaker alert !! You are burning out and need to find some balance, or someone to help you. Your health will suffer otherwise.
Reinventing oneself seems to be the overwhelming pattern that follows us through life.
Good luck to all in finding something to do that you are passionate about, brings self fulfillment, and hopefully income as money generally represents freedom.
Try this mantra or one like it: "If I'm programmed for greatness now ... bring it!" Then wait.
If you're pitching an idea or concept, try putting some humor into it. It goes along way in getting people's attention and connection. They will remember you better.
They say that laughing improves your memory, lowers your blood-pressure and stress hormones. Some of us find humor in everything while others are programmed to have a chip on their shoulder and always have something challenging to say about everything. When I talk to my closest friends, we spend much of our conversations just laughing. Laughing makes you feel good without external chemical stimulants, though it does affect the brain as if a drug.

In the end ... It's all water under the bridge.
