RELEASING HABITS OF SCARCITY

From our immersion in scarcity arise the habits of scarcity. From the scarcity of time arises the habit of hurrying. From the scarcity of money comes the habit of greed.

From the scarcity of unconditional acceptance comes the habit of manipulation. Is it any wonder that we are wreaking havoc on this planet?

Millie's Musings

By Millie Crandall

February is not the cruelest

month of the year; that's

supposed to be April, according to the poem, The

Waste Land, by T. S. Elliot. Here in the northeast,

however, it may very well be the month that makes

me wonder why I did not pack up my beach-walking

clothes, flip-flops and towel and head for a warmer

clime in early October. But I also know the answer to

that: it's because it never seems to be necessary to

run for the south when the hillsides are painted in rich

reds and yellows exciting enough to take my breath

away. I love to walk in Otsiningo Park on a September

afternoon when the air smells of burning leaves

wafting across the river. I know it is time to plant my

purple and yellow crocuses, hyacinths and the tulips

that will follow them. How would I enjoy the spring and

summer to come if I did not freeze through winter’s

misery?

Instead of complaining, it is time to check last year’s

HEALING THE MIND:

How to Get In Line and In

One Accord With Your Mind

By Rev. Olivia Armstrong

607-687-5525 has moved to 607-321-1759 Hair Salon The Styling Corner 127 Spencer Ave. Owego, NY Amanda’s

The only natural emotion we have is love. Every other

emotion is learned. You learn emotions through your

experiences. My ex-husband drank and used to

physically beat me, so at one time when I smelled

alcohol on a man’s breath an instant fear used to come

over me. You may have experienced fear of not having

enough food, money, or love, or fear that you’re not

doing enough for your children. We must realize our

children are their own people. There’s a time to do and

a time to let go. That’s hard. Take a breath! Breathing

raises one’s light vibration.

Don’t let other people be the pilot of your plane. Your

mind is controlled by others when you let their opinions

be your reality. Don’t let this happen. Don’t let anything

outside of you have domain over your mind the way

you behave, feel, or express yourself. Remember that

most of us react to a stimulus instead of responding to

it. Break it down.

The key to healing the mind is forgiveness. Forgive

yourself and others. Another word for forgiveness is

Peace. I know if someone hit you with a bat, it would be

hard to have peace about that. But what is worse,

physical or emotional abuse? Wounds heal but

emotions sometimes never do…it depends on you.

Peace of mind in adversity is a person’s biggest

challenge. Remember, no one can do anything to you

emotionally unless you give them permission.

Regardless of what someone says or does to you, you

choose to feel the way you feel. Remember, your

perception or thinking about something only affects you

if you give that situation power.

To start healing your mind, you must change your

attitude!

1) You can choose to have a positive attitude. You can

say, “I might be PMSing, but I’m not going to be a

grouch.” And when other people vent about their own

problems, many times you just catch their negative

attitude. Having a positive attitude about things

changes your life. “But wait,” you’re thinking, “How can

I have a positive attitude toward someone who has a

negative attitude toward me?” Well, are you going to

allow someone to bring your light down to their level,

or are you going to use your positive attitude to raise up

their light?

2) Patience is key to healing the mind. Some things just

take time to do right. I’ve been on the spiritual path of

patience for eighteen years! I struggle through traffic

jams, long lines, and the toilet tissue rolling off the wall

and tearing short! Remember, “as a man thinketh, so is

he.” You must practice attitude-changing techniques.

They will give you peace.

3) By being a divine child and a divine light, you can

change people’s energy around you. Always send light

and love mentally. Have you heard the story of how

Jesus healed a woman mentally? She was so sick she

couldn’t speak, but her soul went to His heart. That is

called mental telepathy. We all have the power to do it.

You do it all the time. You think the same thought as

another person, or wear the same clothes on the same

day. Scientifically, it’s been estimated we only use ten

percent of our brain. How much did Jesus use? He said

we could do what He did, and even greater works. Let’s

look at that

...

He

compared us to Himself.

Healing the mind is a conditioning and practicing of

one’s thoughts. It is possible to live a happy, joyful and

abundant life full of peace and love. “We are all

beautiful and divine expressions of light. Every moment

we are creating our world with the thoughts we think.

What we choose to think about, we attract into our

lives.” Our thoughts affect us mentally and physically.

Studies have shown that people who practice positive

thinking have a strong immune system and live a longer

life.

As we begin to change our minds, we change our lives.

Peace.

Peace.

In January Congress backed a bill banning the use of microbeads in personal care products, and President Obama signed it into law. These small plastic particles have been a staple ingredient in everyday products like body washes, facial scrubs and toothpastes. They’re too small to be filtered out by water treatment plants, so they flow straight from our sinks to the ocean and into the mouths and gills of sea creatures around the world. Companies will phase out the sale of products containing microbeads over the next two years. A sustainable ocean is a mission we can all get behind!

Brought to you by mega oil and gas corporations

Big oil and gas corporations have unleashed a multi-

million dollar PR campaign to convince you that fracking

is a safe answer to the country’s energy needs. Nothing

could be further from the truth. Drillers see only dollar

signs, not the disasters fracking causes.

Fracking injects a mixture of water, toxic chemicals and

sand under high pressure up to two miles underground

into dense rock formations to crack the rock open and

release oil and natural gas. The fracking fluid that is

injected into the ground is full of poisonous chemicals

that have wide-ranging health and environmental

effects. Some of the fluid remains underground,

potentially seeping into groundwater and poisoning

drinking water. Once that happens, there is no way to

undo the destruction of our water supply. Do you ever

wonder about the increase in earthquakes?

A single fracking well can require more than a million

gallons of water, and local water supplies are being

threatened. Wastewater produced by fracking contains

high levels of radioactivity, and treatment plants are not

equipped to remove it. The drinking water of West

Virginia and western Pennsylvania has already been

threatened. The bottom line is that FRACKING CAN KILL

YOU. A closely guarded corporate secret is that the

chemicals used in fracking are hidden from public and

local officials. So far, 41 known chemicals with extreme

toxicity in fracking fluid have been identified that can

gastrointestinal systems, the brain, nervous system and

immune system. We and our animals can get sick and

die.

The reason that these greedy corporate profiteers get

away with poisoning our air and water is because in

2005 Congress created the “Halliburton Loophole” which

exempted fracking from key federal water and air

protections following intensive lobbying from Cheney

and the energy industry.

PIGEON PONT LIGHTHOUSE

California

Pigeon Point Light Station or

Pigeon Point Lighthouse is a

lighthouse built in 1871 to guide

ships on the Pacific coast of

California. It is the tallest

lighthouse on the West Coast of

the United States.

Constructed in 1871, it is still an active Coast Guard aid

to navigation. Pigeon Point Light Station is located on

the coastal highway (State Route 1), 5 miles south of

Francisco. The 115-foot high, white masonry tower

resembles the typical New England structure. Because

of its location and ready access from the main highway,

Pigeon Point entertains a large number of public

visitors.

The lighthouse and the land around have been

preserved as Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic

Park, a California state park. The lighthouse is also

BLUE-FOOTED BOOBY

only islands off the Pacific coast

of South America, including the

Galapagos, a living laboratory

birds have a wingspan of nearly five feet and engage

their vibrant blue feet in a showy mating dance.

MICROBEADS BANNED!

In January Congress backed a bill banning the use of

microbeads in personal care products, and President

Obama signed it into law. These small plastic particles

have been a staple ingredient in everyday products like

body washes, facial scrubs and toothpastes. They’re

too small to be filtered out by water treatment plants,

so they flow straight from our sinks to the ocean and

into the mouths and gills of sea creatures around the

world.

Companies will phase out the sale of products

containing microbeads over the next two years. A

sustainable ocean is a mission we can all get behind!

Writing From My Rocker

By Hazel Goodrich

The cry of a newborn baby, 2015 years

or so ago, was lost in the music of angels

Saturday, June 18 sponsored by Veterans of Modern Warfare Proceeds to benefit wounded warriors in Tompkins,

filling the sky. They were celebrating the

birth of Jesus, Immanuel. The first Christmas. The wise

men were impressed, the sheep herders were thrilled,

and for the next thirty-three years, He blessed those

who came near Him. Condemned to death as a heretic

by His own people, He suffered an excruciating death on

the cross, was buried, and on the third day rose…proof

death had been defeated! The first Easter. These are the

two most celebrated days since that time.

The world couldn’t shout His message down, they

couldn’t stop it from spreading, they couldn’t stomp it

out by killing His followers. But have they finally found a

way to water the message down, cover the meaning of

the celebrations with gifts, and parties centered on good

times and not the “Good News?” Do we as Christians

put too much emphasis on Santa Claus and the Easter

bunny, giving our children the impression these are a

better focus? We want our children to be like their

peers, we want to be like our peers, we want to “fit in.”

People have written books about returning from

Heaven, but do you see much written in the secular

world about the eternal Hell? That Satan is alive, well,

and working hard to persuade us his way is easier and

the more fun way to go, omitting the fire and brimstone

reward. Sometimes I feel like we are being lulled into a

coma of well-being, numbed like the insects that suck

our life blood.

I love Christmas, and Easter is a special day for us, but so

are all the days in-between. We are created in His image

to take care of this world, to be in it but not of it and yet

even in the churches, the true meaning of it all can be

smothered in the planning and prepping for the

holidays.

Yes, we buy and wrap gifts, and yes, we get caught up in

the anticipation of getting nice gifts and great meals.

The smells of bread and cookies will fill the air from

coast to coast and lovely decorations will grace every

town. I am all for that as long as Jesus is the reason for

the season and we behave accordingly. See you in

church? Have a happy new year!

FIRST NATION

Indigenous People of the land who never

became citizens

FIRST NATION Indigenous People of the land who never became citizens THE PERSISTENCE OF INDIAN CONTINUITY

THE PERSISTENCE OF INDIAN CONTINUITY

In spite of the destruction of communities and the

conflicts among survivors, kinship and family relations

continued to provide many Indians with the secure base

that allowed them to develop strategies for dealing with

the European invasion.

These strategies took three directions: first, going

halfway, by adapting compromises with the outsiders;

second, going over, by taking on many of the outsiders’

ways, while maintaining an essentially Indian soul; and

third, going against, by totally and sometimes violently,

rejecting the outsiders.

There are 17 th century Indian biographies that provide in

detail early examples of each of these three paths.

For Membertou (a chief of the Micmac), conversion

created conflict between his own deeply cherished

beliefs as a native and the requirements both of French

trade and of his adopted Catholic religion. Toward the

end of his life he worked hard to find a balance between

the needs of his own people and the demands of the

Europeans.

For Kateri Tekawitha (of mixed Mohawk and Algonquian

descent), going over to the French brought relief from

her oppressive Mohawk kin and provided a haven in the

Catholic Church, which became for her a sympathetic

replacement for the family she lost as a young girl.

In the case of Aharihon (an Onondaga leader), he found

comfort in his own people family, clan, town while

preventing any outsiders from threatening that security

with devastating cruelty.

HEMORRHOIDS: ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS YOU WERE AFRAID TO ASK

Hemorrhoids may result from:

a fiber-depleted diet

straining to move stool

prolonged sitting on a toilet

pregnancy

aging (causes weakening of the support

structures, which facilitates prolapse)

chronic constipation or diarrhea

anal intercourse

According to a recent scientific review on the subject,

"hemorrhoids have plagued humankind since the dawn

of history." Unfortunately, hemorrhoid treatment has

not changed much since the days of Hippocrates …

thousands of years ago. It has been estimated that 50%

of the population has hemorrhoids by the age of 50.

Hemorrhoids are very common among pregnant

women. The pressure of the fetus in the abdomen, as

well as hormonal changes, cause the hemorrhoidal

vessels to enlarge. These vessels are also placed under

severe pressure during childbirth. For most women,

however, hemorrhoids caused by pregnancy are a

temporary problem.

For anyone suffering from anxiety, worry

or stress…

Stay calm. There really is nothing worth

getting upset about. Fretting will not

recover a missing object. Panicking will

not save your life. Anger emanates from

stress. Without stress there is no anger.

Without stress there is no panic.

Nothing material is permanent and thus objects are

not worth stressing about. Material objects and

comforts are nice, but they should not be anchors

keeping you attached to stress. Move on.

Friends are friends or they are not. A true friend will

never betray you and if a friend does betray you,

than he/she is simply not a friend. Always walk

away from betrayal and do not stress about it. True

and loyal friends are rare treasures and should be

treated as such. Loyalty returns loyalty. Compassion

returns compassion. Courage returns courage. If

others prove disloyal or they betray you, the

treasure is no longer a treasure, but merely a

bauble to be tossed aside. Never stress about

betrayal or loss. It is what it is. If you’ve been

betrayed once by someone, do not allow yourself to

be betrayed again by that same person.

Loneliness is an opportunity to discover yourself.

You can’t find someone to love you if you don’t love

yourself.

BOATS SAIL ON THE RIVERS

By Maryalice C. Seager

Submitted by Margaret Miller

Boats sail on the rivers And ships sail on the seas But clouds that sail across the sky Are prettier far than these.

There are bridges on the rivers As pretty as you please But the bow that bridges heaven And overtops the trees And builds a road from earth to sky Is prettier far than these.

POSTCARD FROM PRAGUE

By Katharyn Howd Machan

You walk the cobbles now, every bend of these old streets a new amazement, you say. Twin spires, curved green roofs, bricks so full of fairy tales you have to speak them aloud.

The picture you have sent shows seven clocks, hands and numbers gilded in sun’s varied light – dawn? Or maybe sunset, you on your way for beef in dill sauce, heavy beer, and there by your feet one small

thin button, mottled purple like the dress I wore when stories called me to this city of time, dreams of bloodsong, ghosts of glass, my voice crying out surprise in love, in bold dark hunger.

COURAGE OF DESTINY

By Rev. O. Armstrong

Have you heard; is this a new word? Courage is so many things

However, it’s always the individualized

pain, fear, anger, hurt… Or is it a curse? This is courage to the 13 th degree This is how our leaders were trying to set you free. Did they fail? Dr. Martin Luther King went through hell

Malcolm X…he stayed vexed

Mother Teresa stayed on her knees

Begging God “please”

Rosa Parks, I know she cried in the dark Their courage was of a destiny for the world to shine How can you conceive it; it will blow your mind The death threats; the bomb scares;

Burning down your house And you thought it was only a mouse April fools. Did they die and lose?

Let’s step up to the plate

This courage is definitely a destiny of fate Can you do it? Are you willing to try and die?

He went to His grave loving me He rose from the dead loving me He went on to Heavens shore Loving me forevermore He went to His grave loving me.

A baby came down from above Just to bring Gods wondrous love To a lost and dying world As He grew to be a man He taught the people of Gods plan To save them thru His living Word.

He was beaten, bruised and torn Faced with laughter and scorn All of this he suffered quietly. Nothing they could say or do Could make Him be untrue He would go to the cross loving me.

The Father turned His face from Him For He could not look on sin Jesus died on that cross all alone He bore my sin and shame So I could call His name And He could make me His own.

He went to His grave loving me. BOATS SAIL ON THE RIVERS By Maryalice C. Seager

BE SPECIFIC

By Rev. Stanley L. Moody, Sr.

What is the thing you would have us do? Where is the place you would have us go? What is causing so very much rue? What is the plant you would have us grow? Perhaps to your plan we would all gladly hike If you only would show to us what it looks like

If you only would have less hatred, less of life’s strife More of God’s love, more of His life

More of His peace, more of His plan More devotion to His Holy Man Less human bitterness, less of man’s cold More harmony within the fold A closer walk on the straight, narrow way

Less of God’s children wandering astray

Perhaps to your plan we would come with a shout

If you would only make plain to us what it’s all about!
