Rocks & Flowers. Rock painting & beautiful nature vews.

Rocks and stones have been inspiring painters and architects
for as long as they exist. Artists have turned beautiful pieces
of natural stones and rocks into canvases for their creations and
applied their skills to create still life and make flowers bloom on their
masterpieces.

Natural views of the stones and flowers are calming, relaxing and
perfect for outdoor meditation. Two opposites of nature - a delicate flower
and a solid stone or rock create a wonderful contrast and refreshing for
the eye and the mind.

I'm listening to the rain. Thinking: Do others like to listen to the rain?

I'm listening to the rain. Thinking: Do others like listening to the rain?

I wanted to see if there are others who think listening to the rain is
pleasant, relaxing, and if it's even worthy of someone's thoughts. Has
anyone ever spent any time thinking about it and said that they did
it. May be just a few people or may be there's a lot of others that do
listen to the rain too?

This is my list of things that people said about the rain.

What other people have said:

LOVE IT! I wish it would rain right now … I love listening to the rain!

Sitting in the library, listening to the rain, reading an interesting
book and wanting to meet the man who just walked past.

I'm sittin' here wondering where you are and listening to the rain.

Listening to the rain is no less than music.

James and I spent fifteen minutes last night listening to the rain.

I Lay In Bed Warm And Comfortable Listening To The Rain Beating Against Windows.

Listening to the rain against the windows and the roof ~ sounds nice...

I love falling asleep listening to the rain...

Me and you listening to the rain. Me and you we are the same.

This activity encourages children to develop good listening skills.

Listening to the rain outside suddenly moved me to read...

I hate being out in the rain but I do love listening to the sound it makes. …

Sit and listen to the rain mix tape.

I won't mind just listening to the rain. …

...rain… oh man i love it. I love the solitude, just being alone with
your thoughts...

Listen to the pouring rain listen to it pour...

I love the rain. It's a perfect analogy for almost everything.

Listening to the rain. Smiling just to see the smile upon your face.

-------
This is just a list of different people thoughts about the rain that I
have made.

I took a bunch of rain pictures of the people passing by as I was
sitting in the car not wanting to get out and get wet. I'm going to
post my rain pictures some time a little later...

3 ways to organize that don't work. Either for home or office. Organizer funny logic.

Closet organizers, bathroom organizers, kitchen drawer
organizers,office organizers, garage organizers, professional
organizers - so many choices in every price category, yet organizing
is a magical unattainable process that has a permanent and secure
residence of it's own on many many wish lists.
cluttered messy home office room desk house wallpaper space organizing cleaning
Who doesn't want to get organized? Organizing seems to be the most
important part of everything we do every day and everywhere.
The difficult part is that we want to organize at same time when we
have to do the very thing we want to get organized for so that we
could actually do that thing since it is often impossible to do the
job if the surrounding area is lacking the necessary order.

But even if we solve somehow the 'chicken or egg' problem there is
still plenty of destruction whether it happens to be a house, an
office, a back yard, a front porch, a car or a garage where we hope to
put the car one day when we get it all organized.

Lots of time can be spent trying to decide what to put where and what
not to put anywhere but in that special contaner called 'trash'.
There are people whose profession is to help others get organized but
it's also often difficult to let somebody go through the stuff that
is yours and yours alone besides the fact that it adds to the expense
category. It could be funny but it's not quite a laughing matter cosidering how
important it seems to be.

Apparently there are well known rules that have to be followed
to bring an order into everyday situation.

The rules:

1. Sit down and make a list of things you want to complete.
2. Prioritise the list and put first things first and last ones last.
3. Start doing the first thing and do it until you finish it
completely, then move to the second one and start the same process
again, continue until the very last one is done.

It's not so well known who and when actually succeeded when following
these rules. I assume they are great rules to follow if you don't care
one way or another. And organizing is not on your list.

If however you are looking to get organized even though this post is
not meant to tell what works I can suggest to not follow the rules,
you don't necessarily have to break anything, just avoid rigid and
self-limiting agenda and be listening to your own advice.

Often times we can tell everyone else what to do except ourselves. So
this time try to advice yourself like you would do it for a friend.
You should be able to see what works for you if you don't distract
yourself with too much unnecessary planning and scheduling.

Do small things when you have little time, do bigger things when you
have more time. Tasks that are related by time or place are more
convenient to be done in a bunch, more complex energy consuming and
labor intensive jobs deserve to be taken as stand alone projects.
You can play by ear and do as you please with many nonessential
elements of your surroundings, but things that need regular attendance
are best to be done regularly, like the laundry, you know...

I 'll try to elaborate on the laundry like subject at a later time
but for now have a cup of tea, wash that cup and stay organized.

And do let us know about your accomplishments by using that handy
comment organizer box.

Recycle Plastic Bottles into useful and pretty new things to use in the house or office. Make stuff, save money too.


Any plastic bottle that comes from a store
and initially contains drink or mild household cleaning substance
can be safely reused and/or recycled and be useful
for many different projects.

You can make all kinds of useful things to use around
the house or office. You can recycle water bottles, soda bottles,
drink and juice bottles, wine bottles, vinegar bottles, liquid
soap and detergent bottles of all sizes. Some of the bottles are
even pretty enough to keep as is and use to store herbs, teas, spices,
other finely milled foods like sugar and salt or pepper if you buy
them in a bigger package and need then to put it in a different container
for convenient use.

A good way to recycle/reuse bottles is to utilize the bottles as a handy container just to keep
some water in it in case there are plumbing repairs and the water in
the house needs to be shot off for a short time, or they can hold
cut flowers and you can put several of them around every room with
just a few or a single flower in each for a very inexpensive and
refreshing room decoration.

Very small and tiny bottles like pill bottles and pill plastic
containers can be used for all kinds of recycling projects as well.
One of my favorite ways to recycle pills and other medicine bottles
and containers is to fill them with mints or other small candies to carry with me
in my hand bag or to keep some in the car. I like it because the pill and medicine
bottles close tight and no sugary cramps or bits of the candies
get out and the bag or the pocket doesn't get messy or sticky.
It also works well for raisins or nuts.

Here is just a few ways how you can reduce
the amount of waist that adds to pollution,
and at the same time create a new and useful piece
to use at home, outside in the yard or at work in the office.

recycle plastic bottle toilet water soda bathroom recycling

Saving water when filling up a toilet tank.

You can reduce the amount of water that flashes the toilet
by making the toilet tank use less water to fill up.
Fill a plastic bottle with water, put inside a toilet tank.
This will make the toilet tank use less water
when filling up.

recycle plastic bottles bug catcher pill water soda recycling

Plastic bottle recycled into a bug catcher.

Cut a plastic bottle into two pieces somewhere around the middle,
flip the top part and place inside the bottom one,
pour a small amount of juice or sweet liquid inside
and your bug catcher is ready to be placed where
the bugs are bugging you.

recycle plastic bottle green house water soda bottle recycling

Plastic water bottle turned into a mini green house.

Cut a plastic bottle around the middle
but leave about an inch uncut so that the two pieces are not
completely separated.
Fill the bottom part with potting soil and drop in some seeds.
Watch your mini green house beginning to grow fresh new greens.

recycle plastic water soda soap bottle gift wrap recycling

Gift wrapped package that you can take to the post office to mail.

Cut the top from a plastic 2 liter soda bottle or a large water bottle,
fill up the bottom part with the content you want to mail,
wrap into a pretty wrapping paper or plastic
and your gift package is ready to go.

Ways to raise energy level. Energy, Power, Nature's Beauty.

Every once in a while anyone can feel like he or she needs more energy,
sometimes we can tell what made us feel that way and sometimes we may
not even know the reason.
If something can take energy from your body there must be a way
to bring energy to the body. What is the place that energy comes from?
Does it have a name and can we find it?
While we looking for the answers to this questions we can do a few things
to increase energy and to do more with less effort.

Let's try this methods and see if they can give us more energy and
make the day brighter.

1. Singing.
2. Dancing.
3. Visualizing.
4. Drawing, Painting or Doodling.
5. Walking.
6. Running.
7. Staying quiet and silent.
8. Writing.
9. Eating plain natural food, drinking pure plain water.
10. Watching the sky and observing the nature.
11. Going to a museum and looking at the beautiful art.
12. Going to the ZOO and watching the animals.
13. Playing with your own or your friend's pets.
14. Reading kid's stories or reading stories to children.

Of course all of this things we do anyway at one time or another,
but they are the same things that can increase your energy level
at the time when you might be asking:"What can I do to feel more
alert and happy". Or may be you don't even think about it because of
some other stuff that's taking up your imagination.

Here's yet another way to bring more energy into the day.

Take a small clean and dry jar and fill it with different herbs:

Cinnamon (for dreams)
Nutmeg (for good luck)
Allspice (for healing)
Ginger (for lunar magic)
Basil (for protection)
Fennel seeds (for spiritual healing)
Garlic (for spiritual purification)
Marjoram (for protection)
Sage (for spiritual purification)
Cloves (for protection)
Mustard seed (for protection)

Close the jar tightly, shake and mix all the spices inside. Open the jar any time you feel like you need more energy, smell the empowering aroma of the herbs and breath in the the energy power.

This Beautiful Road I'd like to take that leads to a Lake I want to swim in.


Why do we try to take the most beautiful road when we travel
even if it takes longer to get where we need to be?
May be because it can make us feel the best we can
when we get there.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

...Robert Frost (1874 - 1963 / San Francisco / USA)

Hypnosis, Freud, Drugs, China, Mental health. Psychologists and psychiatrists use less drugs, more therapy.



Chinese therapists are using less pills,drugs.More Freud

Freud theory developed a century ago is becoming ever more popular
all over China. Chinese psychologists and psychiatrists are now
turning to this old-new technics to help patients looking for better
mental health, not inclined to load on strong medicine and
antidepressant drugs.

Chinese psychiatrist and an associate professor
at Peking University's Institute of Mental Health Dr. Ji Xuesong,37 explains:
"Freud talks a lot about penis and vagina. As a teenager,
I was naturally looking for books on sex so I picked it up.
But I couldn't understand anything. I'm pretty sure, looking back,
that the translator of the book himself didn't understand."

Because drugs are convenient and therapy treatments require a lot of personal attention
and there for can get expensive, Chinese mental health professionals who were
in short supply, were not able to give everyone with serious mental illness problems
drugless therapy nor they were able to provide this type of treatments to people who
just had common depression.

But during the last two years a small number of therapists in the United States
were trying to teach psychotherapists and psychologists in China how to implement
the Freud theory developed a century ago.
This training program is called China American Psychoanalytic Alliance (CAPA).
It seems to be successful in helping many mental health workers to provide
high quality psychological help to a lot of patients using a lot less mind altering
heavy psychotic drugs and medicine.

Aren't we lucky to have a calendar.
October 2010 has 5 Fridays 5 Saturdays 5 Sundays.
It happens only once in 823 years.

What a rare combination.
Not only that but this October also had a date
10/10/10

And if that is not interesting enough
how about 5x2=10

And there's only 2 month between any October
and a New Year!
