God vs. Satan

In the beginning, God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, with green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then, using God’s bountiful gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry’s and Krispy Kreme.

And Satan said: “You want hot fudge with that?”

And Man said: “Yes!”

And Woman said: “I’ll have one, too…with sprinkles.”

And lo they gained 10 pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair.

And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane, and combined them.

And Woman went from size 2 to size 14.

So God said: “Try my fresh green garden salad.”

And Satan presented crumbled Bleu Cheese dressing and garlic toast on the side.

And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said: “I have sent you heart-healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them.”

And Satan brought forth deep-fried coconut shrimp butter-dipped lobster chunks, and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter.

And Man’s cholesterol went through the roof.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition.

Then Satan peeled off the healthful skin, sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them in animal fats adding copious quantities of salt, all to be washed down with artificially flavored sodas over sweetened with huge amounts of high-fructose corn syrup.

And Man packed on more pounds.

God then brought forth running shoes so that his children might lose those extra pounds.

And Satan introduced cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels.

And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretchy Lycra jogging suits as they sat on the couch all evening.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

And Satan created McDonald’s and the 99-cent double cheeseburger, and then asked “Do you want fries with that?”

And Man replied: “Yes! And super size ’em!”

And Satan said: “It is good.”

And Man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed…and created quadruple by-pass surgery.

Satan chuckled and created HMOs.

St. Armand’s Circle John Ringling Bridge

Written by Gary Wonning

The present John Ringling Bridge in Sarasota Florida was constructed a few years ago, connecting St. Armand’s Circle to the mainland of Sarasota Florida, it has become a prominent landmark in the local landscape.

John Ringling Bridge

The bridge is the present reincarnation of a long line of bridges to connect St. Armand’s Circle to the mainland. The first bridge was constructed by the then circus magnate John Ringling who used elephants from his circus to pull the logs used to construct the bridge.

He had visions of St. Armands becoming the play ground of the rich and famous, a popular hang out of presidents and such. As a result the streets on the circle were all named after previous presidents of the United States.

 That dream didn’t quite pan out the way he had envisioned it, however the circle and Longboat Key has become a favorite of the more affluent of our society. Longboat Key is known to be one of the most exquisite ten addresses in the United States and as a result it has gained a lot of notoriety. The most recent claim to fame being that George W. Bush was staying at a prominent tennis resort on the island on 9/11/2001.

St. Armand’s Circle has become a shopping and dining mecca, and as a result the streets and sidewalks are normally filled with vacationers enjoying a day touring the many attractions it has to offer.

As a result of what the area has become, even though for the most part , presidents don’t hang out here on a regular basis, John Ringling’s dream has been  fulfilled.

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist.

There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God!

PHILANTHROPY

A visitor to Israel attended a recital and concert at the Moscovitz
Auditorium. He was quite impressed with the architecture and the
acoustics.

He inquired of the tour guide, “Is this magnificent auditorium named after
Chaim Moscovitz, the famous Talmudic scholar?”
“No,” replied the guide.

“It is named after Sam Moscovitz, the writer.”

“Never heard of him. What did he write?”

“A check”, replied the guide.

2012: The Future

The year 2012 has caused much speculation around the world because so many
ancient calendars end on or near this year. Probably the most well known
is the Mayan Calendar, which after  a five thousand year  history comes
to an end on December 21st, 2012.

path Tikal

Tikal Guatamala

Several other calendars including the Cherokee and Hindu calendars also end.
Various theories exist as to why this is all concluding at this time.
Many believe the world as we know it will end, with mass catastrophes
including floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and tidal waves. Others just
theorize the calendars have to end sometime, why not now?

Most people, including sages, psychics and medicine men believe neither
scenario is true.The end of the Mayan calendar in particular signifies
the end of an era or way of thought,history shows the Mayan calendar has
completed a five thousand year cycle many times in the past, without
major earth shifts.This time will be no different.

Many people have known for years, if not generations, this time in history
would be a time of intense change and that change would usher in a new
earth, a planet of peace and tranquility. Many of the old institutions
that have served us well over the last several years  are either
undergoing much change or are disappearing altogether.  Many are
actually going to get stronger in the long run , but are suffering many
trials in the process of becoming stronger and leaner, and many will
become more important in the coming years as society transforms to a
more spiritual nature.

The shift began several years ago and has been steadily progressing in the
direction of recreating earth to the state it was in in the beginning.
Humanity is just now starting to notice, many are experience memory loss
as we shift from the third dimension to the fourth and fifth dimension.
It isn’t they are forgetting, it is just they did something in the
third dimension and are now more in tune to the fourth dimension, or
vice versa and thus can’t remember.

As we progress , more and more people will begin shifting from one
dimension to the other until the final transition finally takes place in
the year 2030. As time goes by, more people will become aware of what
is happening and thus will be more in tune.

Often times , people are experiencing increased energy and don’t know how to
deal with it. Much of this is causing  alarm among those who don’t
understand what is happening. These emotions and  feelings will continue
to get more intense for a time, however, by the middle of 2012, the
intensity should start to subside as people begin to adjust to the new
vibrational influences.

It will take several years for the transition to be complete as life
returns to a new normal, where there will be more peace, compassion and
opportunity to express one’s talents  and abilities without government
interference or restrictions.

An era will come forth where we can enjoy all the fruits of our labors,
where people will be encouraged to be creative, provide for themselves
and families, make their own way, instead of relying on others to
support them. We will be able to enjoy all the benefits of our modern
technology while also increasing our spiritual awareness and solidifying
our spiritual foundations, something that has been lacking for many
years.

Enlightenment

Humanity will finally figure it out , the human mind needs to stay active and
creative, it is unhealthy to be idle and depend on others for our well
being.

Planet earth will indeed enjoy the thousand years of peace that is promised in the bible.

Mayan culture

It doesn’t take long to discover that Belize is a land of contrasts. From the poverty and disarray of the cities to the quiet countryside, many differences are soon found. With poverty and crime running rampant in cities such as Belize City and Belmopan, the traveler has to be constantly aware of his surroundings and protect whatever is being carried. Remember,that camera hanging around your neck is worth more than the average Belizean earns in a year. All that aside, the Mayan people are wonderfully warm people many of whom go out of their way to please visitors. Traveling into the countryside one discovers thatch roof homes with no doors or windows. Because of the warm climate , they can live comfortably all year with a gentle breeze flowing through the open windows and doors.

The Army of God

 

Moishe Goldberg was heading out of the Synagogue one day, and as always
Rabbi Mendel was standing at the door, shaking hands as the congregation
departed.

The rabbi grabbed Moishe by the hand, pulled him aside and whispered these
words at him: “You need to join the Army of God!”

Moishe replied: “I’m already in the Army of God, Rabbi.”

The rabbi questioned: “How come I don’t see you except for Rosh Hashanah and
Yom Kippur?”

Moishe whispered back: “I’m in the secret service.”

alcohol
In today’s world, many resort to abusing drugs and alcohol, why are so many becoming addicted and not only destroying their lives but the lives of others around them as well?

Live in the present

Human nature dictates that we continually want what we don’t have. No sooner do we achieve our goals and attain that which we sought than we start a new quest for a new challenge.

This is perfectly normal and as a result of this , humankind has achieved much. In spite of this, one needs to keep it all in perspective.We must remember that happiness cannot be found by only yearning for new desires.

If this is true, then how do we maintain a balance between wanting something new in our life and being content with what we have? Luckily there is a way to maintain a balance. It involves changing our focus from thinking continiously about what we want and don’t have to what we already have and being thankful for our blessings.

Think of others constantly and count your blessing everyday, if not every moment. Take a deep breath and remember what is important in life. One needs to remember, you are experiencing what you are in this life for a reason, although it may not be obvious and you don’t have a clue as to why you are enduring whatever challenge is coming your way, it all is for the betterment of your soul. Sooner or later the answer will come and the issue will be absolved.

By maintaining a positive attitude and traveling constantly in the direction you would like your life to progress, sooner or later the challenge will subside and you will begin to experience more of your life’s desires.

By keeping one foot in the reality of life, living in the present, and remembering what you are thankful for, and appreciate what you have, you will be able to still satisfy your need for change and improvement in your life, not only in the material but spiritual elements as well.
