Sometimes I think we are being instructed on how to remain depressed.  We are told about the huge forces that are plotting against us to drain from us the warmth and love that is in our very nature.  I feel that the philosophy behind that perspective is narrow minded.  However I lack the scientific clout to itemize the reasoning behind that feeling of mine.  So whenever I see some well disciplined expert giving a cheerfully encouraging push to us to resurrect from within ourselves our awareness of our ability to dominate our own creations I am happy. Here is an example of what I mean!

Although A Course In Miracles (ACIM) dominated my life for three years starting in 2003, it then faded. Now, a decade later,  one of its ideas is coming round again!  The course demonstrates how “anything created through love must last forever” and I woke up yesterday morning thinking that maybe anything built through love must last forever!!  An interesting idea for a land use planner! (or a railroad designer, or a highway planner) to waken up thinking.  All land use planners imagine that their creations should last forever but we all know land use plans (railroads, highways) don’t .  Is that perhaps because land use planning (railroad and highway routing) is not being done in a spirit of love ? (for humanity)

Very philosophical.  Anyway, I came upon the below Carly Simon mystery song today.  It is called Coming Around Again and  uses the story of the Itsy Bitsy Spider  getting to come back to life after being almost drowned.

Q. How? A:  Because the sun came out again!  Carly Simon sings of the sun as if it were the very symbol of love. Out comes love to bring everything to life.

Love built means that it cannot be destroyed because love never dies .It always comes round again to nourish that which is created out of love.

OK. This musing from an old man’s mind is done   Here is the video
