We Could All Use Some Good News

Updated on July 23, 2010

Water Crystal

In the Forums today

March 21st, 2010: Today was my Granddaughter's second birthday. We had a party. As you might expect she was just as delighted with the decorations as the gifts. The most commonly used word to cross her lips today was "Wow". She was amazed that balloons will float when you throw them in the air. We bounced balloons around for hours. Her joy in the day was infectious.

Good news is infectious, and so is bad news. I came home and came here. I had not been in the forums so I went to see what was going on. "Bad news today?" The Health Care Bill passed.

For some this will be the best news they could possibly hear. For others it is another link in the chain of losing our freedom.

Of course I expect many will be very upset about what this hub is about. I have been trying to tell you in every one of my Hubs. Good begins with you.

People notice what is going on around them in the moment. They rarely notice what lead to that moment. They blame the government, immigration, the economy. Someone may need a reality check.

A great Hubber wrote that each action you do (or don't do) will have an effect on everything around you. You may not see the effect. Just because you do not see something does not mean it is not there.

Good News Today?

In the Above Video

The above video may seem odd as Anne Murray, when she is in it, is not in sync with the song. I chose it for the surrounding video. Does anyone remember the Falklands War?

These videos are not current, the time period looks as if it came from yesterday's news broadcast. Isn't that a bit ironic, considering mankind's quest for peace and a better world?

I notice that in the forums there is much argument about science, and about religion. There is much talk that the Bible is evil, that the stories depict an Angry Child Destroying His Toys. I say to you that the Bible is not history, nor is it fairy tale, and am told it is both.

Silly me. I believe the Bible is written by men who were inspired to write. The Bible claims to be the "Inspired word of God" and people who are angry with this notion, still call it such. I am inspired to write this. Did God inspire me? Or did you? I am writing to open your eyes to reality as I am learning it to be.

The remainder of videos are from a film called "What the Bleep do We Know... (Down the Rabbit Hole) I know they are long and expect you may not view them all in one sitting. I hope you will view them all eventually. I owned a copy, lent it out, and never got it back! I bought another and lent that out... No, it was not returned to me. I am not waiting for it. I will buy another.

What Percentage of You is Water?


Amazing experiment. It has been repeated in a double blind study as Scientists did not like the results and claimed there must have been some sort of tampering. If the experiment could be repeated... With the same results?

We hear that when we wish to lose weight it is important to drink a lot of water. It flushes fats and toxins from our system. If we have an infection it is good to soak it in water. When I was hit by a truck, literally, I was told to go to the ocean by a co-worker. I thought he was crazy. However, when I was subsequently referred to a surgeon and put in the hospital I asked. He said, "It wouldn't have hurt. I can't say it would have prevented the surgery, but it probably would have helped keep more of your leg alive."

Ironic. The ocean. I should never have been released from the first hospital. Surgery should have been scheduled immediately. My leg was necrotic, due to the crush injury sustained. The ocean would have kept more of it alive.

How much of the earth is water? If thought can influence water, and water can heal us, keep us from dying... Hmmm. What are your thoughts?

Can You Prove Your Reality?

Reality is Subjective

In my first paragraph I showed that what is good news for some, seems bad news for others. Arguments ensue. Then anger, frustration, rage and hate.

In other forum threads we have decided not to argue. There are fun threads as well, you will notice that it is the same Hubbers in these threads. They avoid the "debating kind" and have fun saying hello, goodnight, and random acts of Zombie killing goes on there. You will see numerous emoticons, (many of which I do not know how to do)

Many helpful threads are open where we can go for help with our Adsense, blog or other things such as back links. Of course knowing the meaning of these words does me no good. I made 14 cents on the 21st. I am here to write, maybe someday the money will follow.

Ironically the "Debating threads" attract the same hubbers all of the time. They have tried other threads, but they love to debate their beliefs. When you stop by the forums, look and see how many are "debating" how many are "helping" and how many are "having fun".

Reality is subjective. Those having fun have no more and no less problems than those debating, and those helping, or asking for help. There is even a thread from several weeks ago asking where all the fun has gone. Odd. Reality is very subjective.

How did You Affect Reality Today?

Oh Good!

I am so glad you have come this far with me. Let us try an experiment today, with our individual reality. Find one good thing and write a hub about it. It might be a news item. Your personal best at work. A story of how people reacted if you complimented them. Try this!

Every person you see today, offer a smile or a friendly word. Wish them well. Pretend it is Christmas time and you are the embodiment of Scrooge after the visitation. "As light as a feather!" "As giddy as a school boy" Try this experiment! Go into the forums and start a thread about what happens when you smile at people.

At the birthday party today, a number of moms showed up at the same time. All but one was smiling. The last had a frown on her face as if she smelled something unpleasant. I thought "What does she smell?" I mean my daughter doesn't smoke her house is clean, and food is cooking. All of the children immediately started to play. except the child of this frowning mom. The child took much longer to "warm up" and even refused her "goody bag". Later she played with the others, but she did not have as much fun. Her mom wasn't having fun. When her mom got to know us and started to enjoy herself then the child finally joined in the play.

What facial expression gets the strongest reaction? Many were smiling, I noticed the one who was frowning.

Check those forum threads. Count how many people are in the happy ones, as opposed to the unhappy ones. Ironic isn't it?

How do You use Your Mind?

Try Using Your Mind For Good

It may seem difficult. The power of positive thinking. You have heard and been disgruntled by people claiming to have "found it" or knowing "the secret". You have heard the hype, and seen the infomercials. I am sure you have heard of Dianetics and the works of L.Ron Hubbard. I am sure you believe whatever you have learned from life.

Try, just focus on good. Look for the good in others. If you look for faults, if you look for evil, you will surely find it. Challenge yourself! Find something good in someone today. Find a good song, or a kindness you can do for another. Try something different. If I am wrong, you can go back to normal.

It is only an experiment. If we all try something different, perhaps we will see a different result. Perhaps our belief and our observation is connected. Watch the next video, even if you have not watched the others.

Remember, we are a microcosm of the Earth. We are made up of the same elements as the earth. If you look at an atom, it looks like our solar system. It is a microcosm of our solar system. You are made up of atoms. We are in ourselves a microcosm of the galaxy, the universe as a whole. Many solar systems, many atoms.

In my life I am the center, the sun or nucleus, rotating around me are all the parts of me, my family, my friends and you. You are the center of your life, and you have others rotating around you of which I am one. Are you shining your light on them? Or are you burning their eyes with your glare?

The Observer Changes the Properties Of Science

For Your Experiments and Personal Experiences.

I was up all night, and took a nap after taking my son to school. When I awoke I checked my e-mail. This is what we call "Application of Theory" in class. One hubber wrote about her experience with the smile experiment. She was kind enough to send me an e-mail and link to my hub. Unfortunately she has moved on from Hub Pages, so if anyone else would like to try the experiment, I will link this to your story.

      Best hop in then dear lady - there is a train ride full of us and a seat with your name on it :) So glad we found you before true momentum has begun! Our journey will take us to places we haven't even imagined. I commend you on a lifetime of preparation - many need your guiding light.

      As crazy as it sounds Sylvia, I believe you are my White Rabbit, I have been hanging around the edges of the Rabbit Hole waiting for you to lead the way... Here I thought you were late, must be right on time after all.

      Kindred spirit indeed! Whenever someone tries to tell me karma can't be proven, I suggest they spend a couple of days simply finding what is good in everyone they come in contact with and sincerely compliment them on that. By the third day, it's almost tough to accept so many compliments - from people out of the blue! We have both been crusaders in the self care evolution for quite some time my friend - ready to go down the rabbit hole with me?

      Yeah, I got hit on a time or two in my day. I would love to read a hub about your Smiley Experiment! It is a great feeling when everyone gets to smiling, you probably have one of those truly infectious smiles! :)

      Oh! Justine there is hope for humanity left. Most smile back, but then you get the nervous ones and the ones who you can tell needed the smile. My favorite is the one who says, "What are you smiling at." and I say, "You, silly! Have a good day."

      "A great Hubber wrote that each action you do (or don't do) will have an effect on everything around you. You may not see the effect. Just because you do not see something does not mean it is not there" =)

      Rafini, and RebekahElle, I appreciate you reading and seeing the point. Our forums are at the top of Google search engines, and it can hurt Hub Pages if people don't know what it is really about. Especially when there has been so much negativity lately.

      very nice hub and so interesting. I have been studying this for a while as it interests me so much. I avoid negativity like the plague (as it kind of spreads like one!), so I've backed away from forums for now, bookmarking this hub, rated up. thanks for sharing.

      Being at the top of the Google search engine explains why so many new people come in to the forums and ask strange questions!

      I also try to stay positive and avoid the negative. This was an interesting hub, you put it nicely. :)

      Hey Mega. Yes as I look at it with a fresh eye, it may seem scattered to others too, an I will probably have to rewrite. I was trying to break down the difference between what is important and what isn't. Truth, knowledge, good, these are important; debate that resolves no issue is wasted energy, wasted breath and frankly damaging to our collective image.

      I do not know if everyone is aware that our forum topics are the top of the Google search engine. Type in some of the topics. Now we are associated with " sodomite baby-killers".

      Yes I am passionate, and upset.

      You must be feeling really passionate about all these things, but really, there was enough material here for about 4 hubs and I couldn't get through it all. of course, it doesn't help that we don't agree on many of these things. Still I like you. Go figure! I'm not being too critical am I? you don't usually drift all over the map like this so something must be going on with you!

      Thank you Sandy. I know it doesn't sound as scientific as the videos, but it is the fundamental truth about them. Thank you for the compliment.

      Thank you Paradise, I will look for it now! I believe we as people have much greater power over our world than we know. Just trying to get the message out there!

      There I found it and am putting the link here. I will add it to the hub as well, but I am reading it now.

      I've done a hub on Noetics, the Science of Consciousness. The WATER in this hub really, really got to me...I love your choice of videos. That one hub remains a perrenial favorite and gets a LOT of views, I hope this one does, too.

      Thanks Earnest, I know i went a bit over the top, but they are so important! I didn't know if I should reveal too much about each in the hub, then decided, let the work speak for itself.

      Thank you for checking it out. Science, of belief... Interesting! :)
