Guest Artist, Glenys Doull of New Zealand

Wonderful and sharing! Nice to meet Gleny and her rich poetry!

Richard Rensberry, Author at QuickTurtle Books

It is my privilege to introduce Glenys as part of our Guest Artist Series.  I believe she is an important poet of our times and for the people.  Unencumbered by the literary judgements of intellectuals, she is part of the movement to return poetry to the people–where it rightfully belongs.  I hope you take the time to enjoy her wonderful skill of imagery and verse.

Sweet Peas

Heavily scented warm
summer air draws in
buzzing bees eagerly
seeking precious nectar.

Sweet peas swarm up
netting on the old shed wall
a perfumed rainbow
tapestry of many hues.

Pale pastels to bright
reds, purples, pinks,
blues and lilacs paint a
masterpiece on old timbers.

Rich pickings for the
school children’s flower show.

How Reading Rewires Your Brain

Get into reading & writing! I Am!

M.C. Tuggle, Writer

Reading

There is no doubt in my mind that modern society traps its subjects in an unhealthy and unsuitable environment. That stark realization motivates many of my stories (see here and here, for example). The most disturbing symptom of how toxic our culture has become is the increasingly acerbic mutual distrust evident in current politics. Little wonder so many feel depressed, powerless, and alienated.

Rather than utilizing technology to better our lives, we let it rule us. Distracted by smart phones, buffeted by inescapable sensory overload, and hobbling our discourse in 140-character outbursts at each other, we’re incapable of understanding our own inner selves, much less that of others.

Fortunately, the tonic for the condition we find ourselves in is close at hand — if only we would use it, as this eye-opening piece in big think proclaims:

Research shows that reading not only helps with fluid intelligence, but with…

Welding Ourselves Together

‘weld’ -meaning in this case:

  1. 2:  to unite or reunite closely or intimately architecture that weldthe past and the present*

There will be no mincing of words here.
The evil one’s or aberration ‘s sole intention, purpose and plan is to divide and conquer. 
For those that know me intimately, it has been my intention, passion and purpose in this lifetime to bring forth pure religion and true science to weld us together.
This might seem like a mighty big task for one person, but who is to argue with that Force within a being?  I have observed personally a few people in groups do great and mighty things; also those that work alone.  You may know of these people and groups, too. Some are leaders of nations, religions, communities and the like.  Some may be scientists, architects, or mathematicians.  Yet they can be found in the lowliest of positions as well. They, one and all, are indeed filled with a Force to be reckoned with.
I have long neglected that stance of determinism, persistence and fidelity to my cause.  And for this reason, I speak out today due to the times we are living in that you may bend your ear; I hope to incline you toward action.  Positive action producing good effects that are helpful to not only you but others.  I hope to provide you not only information but encouragement to keep on keeping on.
Every day people are waking up to the fact that we need to unite rather than  using death and destruction as an answer to our differences.  It is seen on the television, heard on the news, discussed in social platforms.  We must go into action mode so as to bring victory to the world, to America, to ourselves individually and collectively.  We have many more similarities!  It must start with ourselves.  We must re-turn to Source if not already connected up on a continual and consistent basis.  If we ARE connected up then the time is now!  We must act as our actions speak louder than words.
Are you and I putting into practice the Golden Rule or The Way to Happiness’ precepts (#19 & 20) which basically states:  “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”?  Are we living by example in our thought, word and deed?  If not, then there are solutions and tools to use to get us where we need to be.  There are groups to align yourselves with that will help you and I bring victory to the cause of Freedom.  If we but only knew the precious treasure that lies within each of us, the Divine, Source, Spirit…call it whatever you will, then keeping that image as we look upon others will help us to transform our hearts, minds and souls.  Likewise, it is plain and obvious to see with our physical eyes the negativities in our environment.  This, too, can be changed, altered or transformed by the renewing of our minds.  But it is a call to action!  We must step out of our comfort zone to help others.
I propose that we work together to weld ourselves together in intellect using common sense with simplicity in our political and religious dealings and lives.  It can be done; it must be done for Freedom awaits you, me, America and the world.
Contact me if you’d like more information on what you can do about welding ourselves together at maryrensberry@yahoo.com.  I’d love to hear from you!
(I have devoted another WordPress site for this purpose which includes prose and poetry at: maryrisinger.wordpress.com.)

It’s NOT about ME

Truly, it’s NOT about ME, BUT RATHER, it’s about who or what is IN me…THUS making me who I am.

What good propelling force is in you or me is what counts.

And how is another able to know this force?

By their fruits you shall know them, is the answer.

Are the fruits producing an effect that is helpful or harmful for the most concerned?

As this force is very personal and personable for each of us, nevertheless, IT (being Spirit) IS either us or not to one degree or another. The physical vehicle called the body we carry around with us is not who we ARE, but is simply a vessel in which to allow that force of good to act.

So, by my fruits you shall know me.

What do I DO and how do I APPLY the word or the active loving force within me?

By knowing first Who I Am, and then What I Am on earth to DO (that good creative force working in and through me FOR THE GREATER GOOD) and finally, HAVING the fullness thereof (meaning having the desires of your heart met).

So, it’s REALLY not all about ME!  Do you ‘see’ that now?
