My joy emanates from the presence of God within.
The presence of God within me provides an internal reservoir of peace and joy. I am deeply glad to be part of this vibrant world, while also being connected to God’s gentle presence.
Even when life brings temporary unhappiness, loss or confusion, I maintain an internal awareness of the joy of living in the presence of God. The Divine within reminds me. Nothing can separate me from God, the good.
As the joy in my heart grows, I express what I am feeling. I even find joy in expressing profound sadness. All emotions and experiences are part of being alive!
God’s transforming presence enables me to express the full joy of living.
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy. Psalm 16:11
Christ Consciousness and Humanity
Those familiar with the scriptures of your various peoples should be in position to understand what is occurring, for these are the times spoken of. Yet you must realize that God did not invent the words used in scripture. He merely arranged them in the order most approximating His meaning.
What is actually happening requires all of biological life to convey its meaning.
Words can symbolize this, but hardly portray it fully enough to stand alone. If you would know the deepest truth of scripture, look not to words alone, but to the great momentum of spirit within your own soul. This is where the living history is being made. In a way that would be impossible for your rational intellect to comprehend, this forthcoming event is human history. The sum total of all that has happened on this planet is but the shadow cast before.
In a very real sense, you have not yet been born. You are still in an embryonic state. You have yet to receive the touch of God’s definition. Through the long years of human history, your species has been forming the cells that are to comprise the directive aspect of the physical body of the Creator within Creation. Gestation upon this planet has but set the stage for the emergence of the Planetary Being now taking definite form. This Planetary Being is who you are.
Has it occurred to you that the mathematical probability of your being here is infinitesimal?

Olympic Medal Count at August 15 (August 5 to 21)
2,102 is the number of gold, silver and bronze medals that will be awarded to the athletes competing in the Olympic Games.
The story behind the medals goes all the way back to the Ancient Olympics, when only the winner of an event would receive a crown of laurel leaves as his prize. Legend has it that the leaves were taken from a sacred grove, near the temple of Zeus, in Olympia.
The American Presidency
The U.S. Constitution (text) established America’s national government and fundamental laws, and guaranteed certain basic rights for its citizens. It was signed on September 17, 1787, by delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, presided over by George Washington. Under America’s first governing document, the Articles of Confederation, the national government was weak and states operated like independent countries. At the 1787 convention, delegates devised a plan for a stronger federal government with three branches–executive, legislative and judicial–along with a system of checks and balances to ensure no single branch would have too much power. The Bill of Rights–10 amendments guaranteeing basic individual protections such as freedom of speech and religion–became part of the Constitution in 1791. To date, there have been a total of 27 constitutional amendments.
