Random Thoughts: Communicating Minds

communicating mindsI have written on this blog about my belief that human minds communicate with each other regularly, but most of us are not aware of it because it happens on a subconscious level. This article that was recently being shared on Facebook backs up the basic idea of human minds communicating with each other in a scientific study:


In the news this week only two mass shootings. It has nothing to do with guns, we are told, because someone could just as easily drove through a city randomly killing people with rocks. Except, of course, they can’t come up with a single example of when that happened.


Like many others, I don’t agree with the decision of The Huffington Post to change the name of its gay section to “Queer Voices”. Queer has always meant weird, different, and usually not in a good way so I don’t see this as a positive thing. Queer is the bearded lady, the two-headed snake, the guy with backwards feet, not gays.

JungQuote1It’s always a good idea to agree with Jung, especially when he is talking about the soul. How do you nourish the soul? I cover that in other posts.


Some good memes being posted on Facebook recently, at least if you have the right kind of people or groups on your friends list. Here is another about St. Francis:Francis-FB


I’m glad they caught and arrested two of the clowns aiming lasers at planes and helicopters, either because they are trying to cause a crash or are just really stupid. I hope they throw the book at them. I’m not so happy that a few days later another was caught, but because he was just a teenager, he was turned over to his parents to be disciplined. I don’t care if he is only fifteen, attempted murder—and that is what this is—isn’t something you can just turn to the parents to handle as if it were nothing more than making a rude remark to a girl.


I discovered this week that someone is offering a used copy of one of my books for over UsedBook$50 when it sells new for $5.69! I’m sure it has to be a mistake, but its still funny.




My deepest sympathy to the friends and relatives of those killed on the Russian jet last sympathy1week and to the friends and relatives of those killed in Paris two days ago. It is really beyond my comprehension how people can do such horrendous things.





The wind of God’s grace is incessantly blowing. Lazy sailors on the sea of life do not take advantage of it. But the active and the strong always keep the sails of their minds unfurled to catch the favorable wind and thus reach their destination very soon.” ~Mahatma Gandhi



Do you get carsick or seasick? Does your child or dog? If so, a common product you probably already have can help: Ginger. Ginger is used in herbology to fight motion sickness and nausea in general. It is also useful to fight bloat, to balance blood sugar, and to normalize blood pressure. Some people have told me that is doesn’t work for them, but the majority get good results when treating themselves, their children, or pets. I once had a dog who would get car sick on a ride of only thirty minutes, but after I started giving her ginger before a trip, she could handle a ten hour journey. You can take ginger as capsules, as crystallized ginger, or as ginger ale (make sure it’s a brand that uses real ginger).

A recent study has the scientists baffled. They found that the “placebo effect”, the ability of simple sugar pills to cure illness or end pain in people who are suffering from some illness, is getting more common, but only in the United States. My guess is it’s because most people here foolishly trust doctor and drug companies.


LQ-Game1I love those La Quinta Inn ads where various business metaphors appear literally. The saying, “swim with the sharks,” is illustrated with a guy actuallyLQ-Shark swimming with sharks and the “game changer” keeps changing his outfit to match the sport mentioned by the client. It’s a great illustration of what happens when metaphor or allegory is interpreted literally. Are you listening Evangelical Christians?


BrotherSunPosterI learned recently that the music for the movie Brother Sun, Sister Moon about the awakening of St. Francis was written by Donovan. That surprised me a little since most of Donovan’s hits don’t seem very religious or spiritual, but you never know what many celebrities are really like. If you haven’t seen the movie, I recommend it highly. While it doesn’t reveal everything about Francis’ awakening, it does better than most movies and books on the subject.

Fate hands Donald Trump a golden opportunity to prove he is presidential, and he fails. On the other hand, if he called out the lies in the statements of the Islamophobe, he would probably be deserted by half of his current following.


I’m glad they have identified the little girl known as “baby Doe” and arrested her mother and the mother’s boyfriend. I certainly hope this isn’t going to be one of those cases where either the mother killed the child in order to keep the boyfriend or the boyfriend killed the child and told the mother to keep quiet about it.
