Why Do I Dream? I was sitting in my chair and felt a bit tired, dozing off as usual after having been up early on a Saturday morning attending to my website at 4:00 a.m. The movie I was watching, although exciting, was not a match for my sleepiness, and I put the movie on pause, stretched the recliner to it's backmost position, took off my glasses and closed my eyes.As I lay in thought, memories and observations passing one in front of the other, my mind meandered, and I felt at peace.One or two times, I would actually pass a bit into slumber, but mostly I stayed in that strange in between state between waking and sleeping. That state where my mother used to come and visit when she was actually in her hospital bed so many years ago. Sometimes in this state, I can "open my eyes" but my eyes aren't open.

There seems to be a lot of weather anomalies lately. Is something happening that signals the end of mankind? Throughout recorded history, there have been numerous reports of weather anomalies, increased earthquake activity, and great damage caused to the earth and it's atmosphere. As science advances, and more detailed methods of recording these "anomalies" are widely used, we receive more and more information concerning them.

As the "earth moves", earthquakes happen. When man builds massive cities on the "faults" of these plates, they are always in danger of being destroyed when the plates rub up against each other.The great tsunami of 2004 was not "unnatural". It was a natural phenomenon caused by the moving of the plates under the sea, which caused a "bubbl
What is this concept I've been hearing called "Living in the "Now". Frequently, new age philosophies speak of a concept called "living in the "Now". This concept preaches that each soul on the corporeal plane should look around, enjoy, and soak in the experiences that they are going through, and to elevate, as much as they can, thier current state of being into a super sensory state, so that they can assimilate all of these experiences, and not "worry" about events and occurrences that happened in the past that might have caused them pain or suffering, or to "worry" about the future, which might seem to them uncertain. The "now" is usually thought of as "current time". "Stopping to admire a flower", or to "soak in God's beauty" is "living in the "Now". Forgetting one's frights, fears, sadnesses, and disappointments for a moment, and stopping to "absorb" the w
