While traveling down my driveway this morning, there was one turkey hanging out at the trash (trash day). He was a little afraid of me videoing him and headed to the woods. As I was approaching the mailboxes, there were 4 huge turkeys pecking at the grass. They were not scared of me and I got a great video. While approaching the depot in East Kingston, there was yet another turkey on the side of the road, so of course I had to look up the meaning of the presence of turkeys :)

"The Turkey is a spirit animal closely associated with honoring nature and the Earth. Symbol of abundance, this totem animal encourages us to honor our sources of nourishment, whether they are physical, emotional or spiritual. The turkey reminds us to develop a harmonious relationship with the land and our environment and consider them as foundations to our well-being and sustenance. The Turkey totem is a powerful guide to unlocking the fullness of life and feeling content with what we have instead of accumulating material belongings to seek happiness." ~ Ellen Harris

“We deal with our mind

It is impossible to be privy to all information,
but it is possible to be privy to all knowledge
by tapping into our source.
     ~ adapted, Walter Russell

Morning Quotes 5/17/17

We know how to work without waste of energy. 
In order to get the best that is within us,

everything which subtracts from our purposes.

There is no defeat, 
only the gathering of knowledge.
     ~adapted, Walter Russell

Morning Quotes 5/16/17

Knowledge is cosmic. 
It does not evolve or unfold in man. 
Man unfolds to an awareness of it. 
He gradually discovers it. 
     ~ Walter Russell

If we think we are tired or ill, 
it is only because we have had thoughts
and feelings that have unbalanced 
the bodily conductivity which temporarily 
disconnected ourselves from the universal 
electric current which motivates us.
     ~adapted, Walter Russell

Morning Quote 5/15/17

I believe that there is but 
one thinker in the universe; 
that my thinking is its thinking, 
and that every man's thinking 
is an extension, through that one thinker, 
of every other man's thinking. 
I therefore think the greater the exaltation 
and ecstasy of my thinking, 
the greater the standards 
of all man's thinking will be. 
Each man is thus empowered to 
uplift all men as each drop of water 
uplifts the entire ocean. 
     ~adapted, Walter Russell

“That inner ecstasy of the mind

If we listen to our bodies whisper, we won't have to hear them scream...

When it becomes a part of every man's thinking 
that a single thought can change the polarity 
of our entire body toward either life or death, 
and can likewise change its entire chemistry 
toward increasing alkalinity or acidity 
to strengthen it or weaken it,
or can change the shape 
of every corpuscle of matter in the entire body 
in the direction of either growth or decay,
then the medical profession will radically change 
both its principles and its practices 
with the ailment of bodies.
~ Walter Russell ~

“When we are listened to, it creates us,

Beauty and the Beast

I went to see the new "Beauty and the Beast" with Heidi, Jess, and Carol this afternoon. It was incredibly done. The cinematography was so wonderful I felt like I was in the movie, so much so I 
re-actively thought about grabbing my phone to take pictures. Heidi amusingly mentioned something about getting kicked out ;) - Jess was in tears, her childhood come to life ♥ Carol and Heidi, the movie masters, would be the hardest sell, loved it also. The only drawback for me was the violence come to life was too much for me. The world I choose to live in has no violence ;) 

Gratitude attracts happiness. Happiness attracts more to be happy about.
