A Word From The Wise . . .

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Brigitte is in Germany enjoying a week with her sisters and their families.  This post.  I just received this widely circulated message in my Inbox and thought that,  rather than Spam everyone I know, I would simply post it here.  I hope you enjoy the wisdom . . . and Kudos for Ben Stein & CBS Sunday Morning for airing this thought provoking, no matter what your religious belief or political stance is!  – Michael


ben stein quoteMy confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish, and it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees…  I don’t feel threatened…  I don’t feel discriminated against… That’s what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me.  I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto.  In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu.  If people want a creche, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him?  I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different:  This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her ‘How could God let something like this happen?’ (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives, and being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?’

In light of recent events… terrorists attacks, school shootings, etc.  I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.  Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself, and we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about, and we said okay.

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.  I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.  Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it… no one will know you did.  But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards,  Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein


I Will Write a Book

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

Michael and Brigitte

Just a very short note for today . . .  I am committing to write a book about relationships between men and women!   I will get my husband Michael to help (since English is only my second language), but I want to contribute most of the content.

I just thought of one of the “sins” men do, for example . . . they make it harder for women to love!  If you’re a woman, it’s painful not to love, isn’t it?  I don’t mean falling in love . . . I mean that love is really the nature of all women.

Anyway, more next time …..

Conscious Mind

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Michael had Dr. Teri Mahaney on his radio show yesterday, (Logical Soul Talk, Blog Talk Radio, call in 347-843-4544, every Tuesday from 6:00- 6:30)  and she said something very important what happens to every one who goes through a process that really changes / resolves “the problem/issue”.

Most of the times I go into a session with Michael and it’s a life and death issue of course, and once I get “access” to the issue, or the first time I created the decision that “life is so from now on”  and clear whatever needs to be cleared that life and death issue is completely gone.

What I mean is I don’t remember it, I have a hard time recalling that issue when I try to share it with someone, it is really gone.  What the pity of that is as Dr. Teri Mahaney pointed out is that we don’t really see how we as human beings evolve.

Well the mind is freer now, has more space to just be not-minded and not burdened with the obsession, that is a good deal.  And I thought from now on any one having a LS (Logical Soul) session must write down the issue, the pain on a scale from 1 – 10 and once the session is complete rewrite the pain on the scale from 1 – 10.  So the CM (conscious mind) can see, oh yes, I did that, good job and thanks.
