A good traveler has no fixed plans
and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition
lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts
and keeps his mind open to what is.
Thus the Master is available to all people
and doesn’t reject anyone.
He is ready to use all situations
and doesn’t waste anything.
This is called embodying the light.
What is a good man but a bad man’s teacher?
What is a bad man but a good man’s job?
If you don’t understand this, you will get lost,
however intelligent you are.
It is the great secret.
Tao Te Ching v27
Christ Consciousness and Humanity
It is written that the day will come when men will no longer live on the bread of matter, but on the living word of God. Attune. That day is now. The nourishing information awaits within. Eat of it in ways that you will not understand with the rational mind. Partake of infinite energy. Do not reason over it and trouble your hearts and say it is by this mechanism or that mechanism. But arise, take up my identity in your being, and enter the house that I have prepared for you in my manifest body. Follow the direction of informing life. It rises up within you like the feeling you got when you were in love and your beloved drew near. It quickens your heart this very moment.
Trust in it. It will not lead you astray. Be impeccable in all that you do, however small a thing, and in that perfection express my fullness.
On the hills of Galilee, I taught you to cast out devils in my name. But this is a new age and a new generation, and to those of you who are to work with me in the preparation of this planet. I will say this as well “Cast out definitions in my name.”
For it is by definitions of a multitudinous kind that the spirit of life, bubbling so gently out of the Earth, is held in the restraining halls of Satan. In the coming age, it is to be by my definitions alone that matter is informed. On vibrational channels of being, I am broadcasting these definitions even now. If you silence your thoughts and attune to your inner signals, you will begin to expand into my conceptions, into a new interpretation of reality.

Greetings From Olympic Park
To You, From Rio …
This is the view from our office in the Olympic Park. That’s the roof of the gymnastics arena over there, and the roof of the diving venue right there, and the roof of the indoor cycling arena there. Oh, and those mountains in the back are part of Tijuca National Park. Not bad, right?
On the other side of those mountains is the Maracanã stadium, where the opening ceremony will be held Friday night. Who do you think is going to light the caldron? The locals we’ve talked to seem to think it’ll be either Pelé (he played soccer) or Vanderlei Cordeiro de Lima (he ran marathons).
The Games begin in earnest on Saturday. We’ll be here until the end, on Aug. 21.

The American Presidency
Day before yesterday we looked at the history of polling and particularly the Gallop polls.
This posting today by the New York Times provides an interesting source for those who want to see various polls synthesized and where you can subscribe to updates.
The New York Times polling averages use all polls currently listed in The Huffington Post’s polling database. Polls conducted more recently and polls with a larger sample size are given greater weight in computing the averages, and polls with partisan sponsors are excluded. Here’s how different types of polls work.
In what is universally being called the most bizarre campaign in American political history it would be unusual if there were not more surprising twists and turns over the next three months.
