FIRED UP! READY TO GO! LIFE: A BOOT CAMP FOR CONSCIOUSNESS If we are not fired up, we are not likely to pursue our life’s greatest dream. Building the right consciousness is like an athlete training his body to be best for his sport. If at times, we become discouraged and feel down, remember the old Yiddish saying, “In the twinkling of an eye, salvation comes.” It will pick you up. It did, former president, Barak Obama. It was during his campaign for the Democratic Candidacy in the 2008 election. He arrived in the small town of Greenwood, South Carolina, on a rainy evening, sick and down in spirit. Going to the car, his umbrella blew inside-out and he was soaked. His driver said the hall of his destination was an hour and a half away. Only a handful of people were there at Mr. Obama’s arrival, and neither he, nor they, were feeling particularly inspired by each other’s presence.

The Mayo Clinic thinks men can take charge of their health by making better choices: 1. Don't smoke or use other tobacco products, avoid exposure to secondhand smoke, air pollution and chemicals, such as those in
The Function of Philosophy Roland Faber in his book “The Becoming God” “Process Theology, Philosophy, and Multireligious Engagement,” said [Philosopher Alfred North] “Whitehead in his last book, Modes of Thought (1937), presented to us with a surprising appeal to the inevitable relationship between society, philosophy, and mysticism. This triangulation may be established in two steps. First, Whitehead holds that it is one of the most important functions of philosophy to provi de society with ever-fresh conceptualizations of reality so as to avoid the petrification of its life into doomed repetitions of its past." Taking this first step of philosophy in consideration, I wonder how many folks are interested in not concretizing their notion of God by their readings of our ancient texts. Further, are there folks who would like to explore the more contemporary notions of God evolving from our knowledge of Quantum Physics? Still further, can these new revelations shed greater ligh
