The Green CurtainsShe was part of a large family. We shall call her Em,, Aunt Em. As Em grew older, her mind started to take a peculiar turn. In the house were some green curtains hanging over a doorway. For some unknown reason, these curtains terrified her. She warned everyone, "do not go thru those green curtains!" and added, "they are evil." This was highly inconvenient to the other family members. They tried passing thru those curtains when Aunt Em was not around. Then one day they heard about a doctor who used hypnosis in his practice. He claimed that he had helped some people with similar phobias. They decided to give it a try. Aunt Em was willing, as she was usually a very agreeable lady. So the session was set up. With mixed feelings, some hopeful, some skeptical, they entrusted Aunt Em to this doctor. As the doctor was putting her in a trancelike state, he noted how clear eyed she seemed. She certainly did not look like a mentally delusional person. Soon she was in a deep trance. "Just relax, Em. Can you hear me okay?" "Yes, she said.? "Okay, we are going for a walk together. You will be safe. I will be with you. Are you ready now?" "Yes, she said." "Okay, we are walking together thru a big house with many rooms." They walk slowly thru several rooms, then make their way down a long hallway. At the end of the hall, the doctor asks, "do you see that door with the green curtains?" Em says, "Yes! I do! Don't go thru it, please!" He asks, "Can you tell me why?" Em says, "Yes, they are evil. The Devil will get you if you pass thru that door!" He reassured her that those curtains were not evil or associated with the Devil. Then the doctor slowly awakened Em and asked if she felt okay. "Yes, I do," she said. Aunt Em seemed to be very relaxed and calm. Then the doctor advised her family to change those curtains to a different color, as an added measure. They agreed to do that. So all ended well for Aunt Em and her family. Then the doctor went home, smiling to himself, because in his house hung some green curtains over the door of a seldom used room. He decided to enter the room, to lay to rest any lingering uneasiness left over from that session. So he did. Aunt Em's family were shocked when hearing the news a day later, that the doctor who had been so helpful to them, had fallen in his home, with a green curtain wrapped around his neck, and was quite dead. So sad.
LIFE WITHOUT MERCY. Shadows melted with silver rain
retire, The sky is grey.
He flees (in fear he will be lost)
The rushing, gushing clay.
The clay, the sallow, yellow clay,
is but the Net Of Death,
Pursuing fleeing feet until,
at last, they're out of breath.
The sun breaks through the heavy boughs,
and lightens up the trees.
The heaviness thus leaves my soul,
and sets my heart at ease.
Hold My HandShimmering strands of lightfloat down from the moon this night.I'm all alone, out to roam,hear whispers and a soft moan.The bare branches of the treesseem like evil threatening me.The air is bursting with tension,building up my apprehension.The shrieking howl of a catsends shivers up my back.Breathless feelings of fear, wondering who is near.As I creep along this path,wishing for courage i don't have.Out of the shadow steps a man,saying, hold my hand, just hold my hand.
Well said Tombl.....well said. Thanks.
itd be nice but sometimes cats and dogs don't get along.the world has too many cultures,religions and races to make it fair and equal for all.
there are words,names,pictures,flags,ect. that are going to offend one side or the other.just look at words like wack that have different meanings to different cultures,italians-to kill someone,blacks-when something is messed up,white people from the south-to masturbate.
the main thing needed is to respect other religion,cultures and races wether they offend you or not.
I tell a lot of people like this,dont come to my house and tell me "i don't like nascar so you need to get rid of all your stuff".i don't go to your house and tell you to I don't like certain things and you better change or I'm throwing a fit in the streets of America.
I'm not a kyle busch #1 fan but I don't expect all you that are not to be just because his face offends me,lol.
hope is great and all it wont make everyone happy.
I share your hopes and desires Eddie. I wish the same thing for the whole world. I just wish the world would stop the hatting and killing and shooting. I know what it's like to be on the recieving end of a bullet and it hurts like something you just can't describe. It came from nothing more than hate. Hate and greed is destroying this world and it's growing like a cancer and there's no human cure for it. I really believe Jesus is coming this year but we 'll just have to wait and see. I hoping and praying for the best but preparing for the worst. We're living in scary times.
Thank you, Eddie....it is my hope that all your hopes become reality. I hope that people will respect and care for each other....
A new year beginsMy hopes stay the same...
I hope love prevails over hateI hope generosity prevails over greedI hope courage prevails over fearI hope justice prevails over terror
I hope tolerance prevails over prejudiceI hope harmony prevails over violenceI hope knowledge prevails over ignoranceI hope equality prevails over segregation
I hope peace prevails over strifeI hope honesty prevails over corruptionI hope the truth prevails over manipulationI hope the will to act prevails over conformism
I hope communion prevails over selfishnessI hope abundance prevails over hungerI hope prosperity prevails over povertyI hope more people share my hopes
Thank you, Dan. those are wise words and will give comfort and inspiration to many.
During these rough times, we can all feel LOST at times. Here is something I wrote a while back to help me. I thought about whether to post this or not and thought it helps me, so why not share it. It doesn't matter what your religon is or is not. I just hope it helps you feel stronger and or better in time.
We have all LOST things we have missed in our life
We have all LOST things that didn't matter in life.
We have all LOST someone we thought was our life
We have all LOST moments unlike any other in life
We have all LOST our mind at least once in our life
We have all LOST a job or two and survived in this life
We have all LOST someone leaving us lonely in life
We have all LOST faith in dangerous times in this life
But when I feel LOST, I just stop and look around
I look to nature, the stars, the good things and good people around
I then know in my mind and my heart, God is there always, to help me feel FOUND.
