Oh yeah! I saw this photo and quote on the wall at Santa Clara University today. #Robert Redford

"What new formulas await to preserve our environment, if not repair the damage already done? What solutions will save public education, now endangered in underprivileged areas by the greed and ignorant ambitions of faulty leadership - or support and sustain art as a vital part of any society or culture? When I look about and see what the information age has wrought, I see a culture rich in materials for pleasure and excess communication but poor in depth of feeling and imagination - dull and flat and rich. I vote for the fight. For if our humanity -- our soul as a society -- is overtaken by the material and cosmetic, there will be no hope for peace. "

Beautiful morning out on the hilltop at Sunnyvale Bay Trail. Geese, heron and several snowy white egrets. Of course ducks too. The air was cool and calm. The heron was watching as the geese flew near to us.

Clap along if you feel happiness is the truth . . . .

I'm happy out in nature.
 
Don't forget to be happy :) // Happiness makes people more productive at work, according to the latest research from the University of Warwick. Economists carried out a number of experiments to test the idea that happy employees work harder. In the laboratory, they found happiness made people around 12% more productive. [...] During the experiments a number of the participants were either shown a comedy movie clip or treated to free chocolate, drinks and fruit. Others were questioned about recent family tragedies, such as bereavements, to assess whether lower levels of happiness were later associated with lower levels of productivity. [...] Dr Proto said the research had implications for employers and promotion policies. He said: “We have shown that happier subjects are more productive, the same pattern appears in four different experiments. This research will provide some guidance for management in all kinds of organizations, they should strive to make their workplaces emotionally healthy for their workforce.”

Wonderful words to live by from Deepak Chopra (Soul Sunday program with Oprah).

Clearing of Bad Thoughts

S = Stop
T = Take three long deep breaths and smile everywhere in your body
O = Observe what is happening in your body, sensations
P = Proceed now with kindness and compassion


To get past unpleasantness that keeps happening say:

I remember the past, and I learn from it

I celebrate in the present

I rejoice in the future

I use memories but I don't allow memories to memorize me

The past is gone.  The future is Now.  Here Now I am Free of Both.  What am I choosing Now?  I choose Joy!

Five questions to answer yourself - Soul Profile

Who am I?
What do I want?
What is my purpose in this life?
What are my unique skills and talents?
What do I expect in a meaningful relationship?

Your answer to who am I can not be what your job is.  That is not who you are.

Very nice new park. The parking lot has the concrete remains of the quarry tunnels built in the mid 1920s. The trails lead uphill from the parking lot to a picnic area (first right) or continue uphill to the scenic trail and pond. The trails are covered with gravel. There is a picnic table at the top of the scenic trail.
