Extemporaneous Blogging

There surely is a lot to contemplate of late.

Back in the summer of 1967, I sat on a rock somewhere around Fresno and stared at the night sky. I projected myself into space as far as I could imagine and visualized myself sitting on a rock in that distant place. I looked back towards earth, Fresno and my rock.

I coudn't see myself.

At that moment, I knew there was an Unknowable Creator and there was certainty in my heart. At that moment, I knew why my mom was not afraid of bats and bogey men in the mansions of my childhood. She believed in God. She did not fear His creations.

Even though I believed, life still felt like a footrace on iceskates. And I've left one hilarious (in hindsight), zig-zagging trail ever since.

More to come...

This is Dan Seals and the 2000 Nashville Baha'i Conference Choir singing "We are One". This simple truth is my gift to you for Ayyam-i-Ha.

Ayyam-i-Ha: Literally, "the days of Ha" (Ha being a letter in the Arabic alphabet associated with God). A four-day period (five in leap years) for Baha'is of charity, gift-giving and celebration that immediately proceeds the period of fasting.

I just realized something about the word HA.

n. - (astronomy) the angular distance of a celestial point measured westward along the celestial equator from the zenith crossing' An exclamation denoting surprise, wonder, joy, or other sudden emotion; Word used to indicate laughter.

First syllable of the word 'Hatha', which is composed of the syllables 'ha' meaning the sun, and 'tha' meaning the moon. The object of Hatha-yoga is to balance the flow of solar and lunar energy in the human system.

Hawaiian: "Ha" literally means the breathe of life:
The "haw. Dic" defines the word thus, first context: The number four and various modifications of the number. For the second context: To breathe, exhale: to breathe upon, as kava after praying and before prognosticateing: life, breathe. And then it gives usage examples.
"Ha ke akua I ka lewa",  "God breathed into the open space".

" I projected myself into space"

Wow! I did the same thing myself in the eighties, then I ran out of mushrooms.
