Stand before me on the sign of infinity, all you of the earth. With the granting of the law of provination comes the application of change.
I will give you the key. And with this knowledge, please realise, comes the responsibility of sharing it. I will show you the way.
It's very simple. Throughout the universe there is order.
In the movement of the planets, in nature and in the functioning of the human mind. A mind that is in its natural state of order, is in harmony with the universe and such a mind is timeless.
Your life is an expression of your mind. You are the creator of your own Universe - For as a human being, you are free to will whatever state of being you desire through the use of your thoughts and words.
There is great power there.
It can be a blessing or a curse - It's entirely up to you. For the quality of your life is brought about by the quality of your thinking - think about that.
Thoughts produce actions - look at what you're thinking.
See the pettiness and the envy and the greed and the fear and all the other attitudes that causes you pain and discomfort.
Realize that the one thing you have absolute control over is your attitude.
See the effect that it has on those around you. For each life is linked to all life and your words carry with them chain reactions like a stone that is thrown into a pond.
If your thinking is in order, your words will flow directly from the heart creating ripples of love.
If you truly want to change your world, my friends, you must change your thinking.
Reason is your greatest tool, it creates an atmosphere of understanding, which leads to caring which is love.
Choose your words with care. Go forth ... with love.

No one has mentioned it but in the revival of Follies but when Rosalind Elias sang "One More Kiss" -- the audience may not have known who she was but at 82 she could hold the entire theater in your soaring operatic voice. You could literally hear a pin drop at the Kennedy Center when she hit the last note. There was literally a beat or two and then the place erupted in applause. I had tears streaming down my face.
I use my own name 'cause I do not "hide" behind my computer.
You can be critical of someone.... that is fine.
But when you bash them 'cause you think it is funny (for their looks or such) then you cross a line.
Maybe I am a Polyanna (and I can handle it if you want to bash me) but calling someone a C on the page or a retard is rude. How would you feel if you were calling your sister, mother or daughter a C or you had a child with dis
I usually see musicals when I go to Broadway for some reason so my moving play experiences are not from NYC.
I remember seeing "lulu" at Berkeley Rep and being absolutely blown away. It was one of those shows that has haunted me for years. I still remember the end with Jack the Ripper literally holding Lulu's lips in his hands "saying such a pretty mouth... such a pretty pretty mouth" -- haunting and stunning.
