December 7-15, 2023

Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating. We all know this is a very difficult time for the Hebrew people and others involved with the Middle East conflict, but hopefully some joy will come into your life in this holiday season - whatever you celebrate - wherever it takes you.

Twinkling Lights and Shining Stars

As Hanukkah begins we remember producer, screenwriter, and TV Titan Norman Lear a shining star who passed away Wednesday December 6, 2023 at age 101. For decades he was a household name who made the small screen bigger - stretching TV boundaries to share new stories with humor.

Quote: "Laughter adds time to your life." He preferred not to say "Goodbye" instead using an expression I often use in my blogs: "To be continued ..."

Norman Lear leaves behind a rich and complicated legacy

Free Will Rewind 2023

Free Will is part of the illusion in the simulation of our reality. It goes along with the concept of hope and being able to heal and overcome obstacles - part of the algorithm of physical reality.

If Free Will existed, how different all of our lives would be. We could change the negative and experience the concepts of love and light - but that is not how reality is program for most people.

Third dimension is a linear time insert to experience emotions, which cannot happen if we have the ability to change things to our liking.

Also, remember that everything is connected and that if you were to change your destiny, it would ripple out to everyone else's. In truth, your life evolves based on your DNA codes for experience which brought you here today.

Does Science Really Show Free Will Doesn't Exist? Here's What You Need to Know   Science Alert - December 6, 2023

Free Will May Just Be the Brain's 'Background Noise,' Scientists Say   Live Science - June 20, 2014
Free Will may arise from a hidden signal buried in the "background noise" of chaotic electrical activity in the brain, and that this activity occurs almost a second before people consciously decide to do something.

Free will is an illusion, biologist says   PhysOrg - March 3, 2010
Conscious thought is simply a reflection of, rather than an influence on, unconscious neural activity, which directs behavior.


Monday evening I was thinking about not being in the holiday spirit as in the past - when I decided to go to Facebook and see what my friends posted. I also remembered an email I got Monday morning from a client of many years named David - telling me that he feels detached from this reality - a common thread in my readings and people I meet in general. The image below is the first one that popped up as I thought ... How close are we to closure?
