Liquid Pools That Shimmer

Majestic ripples. Waves of time spreading outwards. Timeless and hidden soothing the mind.

Blues And Greens

Wayward and alone. Agreed solidarity. Bold and beautiful. Creative and alive.

A View of Paradise.

Tropical pools. Bamboo trees. Rocks and waterfalls. The sun blazing high above.

Northern Lake

Misty mountain top. Lake of dreams. Enter the green valley and become one with nature.

Tree of Life

Never ask why. Fate surely has other plans for you when a mystic light is shining on you.

After 12-12-12

Dec. 12, 2012 came and went. A pivotal point in history for it will not happen again for long time. This date is the last triple-digit date alignment until Jan. 1, 2101. Twelve is the number of what is completed, which forms a whole, a perfect and harmonious unit. A significant date to some promoting a change coming soon that equates a peaceful transition. The date 12-12-12 holds mystical and supernatural powers as well as full of energy. Twelve is the symbol of material and spiritual that also represents the manifestation of the Trinity to the four corners of the horizon.
Twelve also is of divine power, rule, and authority. It means joined, united, oversight; government is the means by which people are united into common purposes and goals. A magical time/number to come together and make a difference in the world by spreading encouragement for the pursuit of happiness to all. An excellent time to promote friendships and bring bonds closer with shared ideas and goals for a bright future. Enjoy this great moment in time and history, and keep thinking positive for a better tomorrow - T.S.Garp

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! As the night clouds close in blocking out the shinning of the moon, even the stars are barely visible as the bewitching hour’s approaches. You travel along the wooded dark path and hear the sound of the dead coming back to life to terrorize the local town and cities. Thunder roars, a flash of lightening blinds you, and the night wind envelopes you with a blood curling chill to the bone. *Read more on Halloween Night.

Doctor Who in New York

This article of mine was written months ago and for lack of a better word was lost in the shuffle, but good news is that it was published online before the Doctor transports himself and company to the streets of New York City. This episode was filmed months back as the dashing Doctor prepares to say good-bye to his long-time companions and soon meets another one.
Be sure to read Doctor Who Takes Manhattan. Doctor Who gains momentum as global appeal increases and happily invades American television.

I know I have been away for a very long time. But keeping up with today's news in the New York Times or rather a week ago, I am intrigued by the fly-byes of the last of the space shuttles. The Endeavour space shuttle buzzed over LA and San Fransisco flying low enough for everyone to see. A completely awestruck once in a lifetime experience to behold. Later, after safety landing at LAX, the shuttle will stay a few weeks there before making its final journey over the streets of Los Angeles as it travels to its new home at the California Science Center.

Astronaut Neil Armstrong, RIP

First man to walk on the Moon has died. Astronaut Neil Armstrong past away on Saturday. He was 82. Very sad news. I can remember growing up how I always wanted to be an astronaut and venture into outer space. Watching shows like Star Trek and watching the NASA space shuttles launch into orbit to a waiting space station. Many people are still longing for that pristine future presented in the 1968 classic sci-fi film titled 2001: A Space Odyssey. Yes, we all wanted that remarkable futuristic world with moon bases, huge circular space stations, and brave astronauts leading the way to other planets like Venus, Mars, and beyond. So thanks Neil Armstrong for making a giant leap for mankind and showing the world that it is possible to walk on another planetoid. Thanks for leading the way. He is truly an inspiration. God speed.

The Sea Summer Chronicles

Start your day serenely! It's never to late to embrace a new day and start again - Toci, Toltec Wisdom * With those positive words I begin to reflect on the joy of another summer and as the temperature rises thoughts of beachcombing for seashells, swimming, spending time with family and friends, more barbecues, summer movies, music, and trips, all of which I‘m looking forward to. I must admit upon reflection I need to start meditating again, keep my mental focus, and remain upbeat each and every day. Generally speaking, life is good in the big scheme of things, I’m very happy my e-books are done and should be available as I speak. The writing and creating process can be a long road to undertake.
However, life is full of surprises and often than not will put up a few curves here and there about something, life brings opportunity and challenges (keeps things interesting), which is needed for personal growth, but I relent that it really shows us how determine we are in the face of any adversity. We have to maintain our long-term goals, try to create the future that we need, and want. We need to also listen to the wind and the heart of wisdom. Having the vision to create what was not there before and the drive needed for the direction or canvas you hope to see is exactly why you should never let dreams fade away.
We must remember that we are on a journey with other souls too (family and friends) and I greatly want everyone enjoying the life of a “shared-experience” that is on a similar path. This Summer is that goal and well beyond into Autumn-Winter for 2012. Despite the hard economy and “slow-periods” in anything in our lives, we should instead enjoy even the least bit of paradise that is presented to us from the ultimate divine source to our happiness. Let it in and let the universe, God, and the your super-conscious mind work its magic for your happiness. It is never too late to start embracing everything and everyone. * Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming. ~ John Wooden

Keep writing and keep dreaming everyone!

Ray Bradbury dies at 91.

Ray Bradbury dies at 91. A wonderful writer, a true visionary who could spin tales so full of imagination and brilliance. A recipient of the Pulitzer Prize award for lifetime work in fantasy and science fiction literature. His numerous short stories, novels, and screenplays are superb. He joins the list of my favorite writers who have passed on and helped made the world a more interesting place like Robert A. Heinlein, Author C. Clarke, and Isaac Asimov. Read The Washington Post news article on Bradbury's life.

A Lot of Shake'n Going On

California hit by small earthquake near Malibu the day before yesterday, 4.0, no damage. Italy is suffering with two quakes, the first ten days ago of 6.0 and another the day before yesterday, 5.8 magnitude earthquake. A 6.1 magnitude struck off the coast of northeastern Japan about just over a week ago. I hope this is not a growing trend.

R.I.P. Donna Summer

Donna Summer, American singer-songwriter, five-time Grammy Award winner, and legendary disco queen past away due to lung cancer on May 17th, 2012 at the age of 63. My heart is sad at this breaking news. I absolutely love her voice and her music. One of my all-time favorite Donna Summer songs is I Feel Love from 1977. She will be deeply missed and I’m thankful her music will live on, and the memory of her will never die.
Another disco era legend has lost his battle over cancer. Robin Gibb, British singer and songwriter dies at 62 on May 20, 2012. Gibb is most remembered as one of the Bee Gees with his twin brother Maurice and older brother Barry. A terrible lost and another blow to his family. Robin Gibb was one of five children, younger brother Andy Gibb, a very popular solo singer in the 1980s died in 1988. Maurice Gibb past away in 2003. Gibb is survived by older brother Barry and sister Lesley. I remember how the Bee Gees became even more famous and popular when they provide the soundtrack for the highly successful film Saturday Night Fever starring John Travolta in 1977. Fans around the world are mourning the lost and grateful that both musical artist has left us with unforgettable music to enjoy and brighten our lives for years to come. Our prays and thoughts are with Donna Summer’s and Robin Gibb’s family. I sincerely hope and wish the medical establishment would release a real mandatory cancer cure to end this dreaded disease.

Always Continue The Climb

Had a great time during Earth Day celebration. I just completed a 20 mile trail run surrounded by nature, mountains, and trees! Met awesome people!
Ayn Rand, philosopher & playwrighter, said “a creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others,” and that is true for me too as I am motivated to always continue the climb, always have the desire to learn and achieve, always do your best, always live for the joy and experience of it. Believe in yourself and you are already half way there!

Ching Divination

From the Daily I Ching Horoscope Reading: Today, you may enjoy a major change after a long period of tension. This is also a time when some difficult people will have less of an influence. If you want to make a change, move forward with confidence. A friendly attitude opens doors today. At the same time, you must not compromise with those forces you are leaving behind. Be aware of your own weaknesses. Becoming too stubborn or selfish can work against your best interests. Share any success.

The Mystic Edge Connection

The last couple of months have been a busy-blur. Designing new blogs and websites. I've finally been able to list all of my favorite online stores like Mystic Edge, Book, Camera, and Kindle/Computer shops at the top of all my web pages. I'll be listing more as they come in from Beta mode. The Mystic Edge Zazzle shop is operational and being redesigned. The ME Café Press shop business is doing well and looks hopeful. More designs are coming in the future. All stores listed on my blogs are quite interesting and have competitive prices and tons of items to shop over. Most of these shops were active months ago, but everything is always in a work in progress mode. From Amazon books to the Mystic Edge online clothing store.

The Mystic Edge philosophy believes in that all things fall under the realm of unlimited possibilities and that we can gain insight into mysteries, transcending our hearts, and mind; going beyond ordinary human knowledge, becoming divine, using intuition, faith, and love until we reach a state of spiritual ecstasy. A very positive place.

Just a reminder that I also have listed some other excellent stores like the Book Shop, Buddha Shop, Cultural Shop, The Chess Shop, Unique Vintage Shop, and Modnique Shop at the top of this website. Other shops are coming to the Mystic Light Blog.

Connecting The Dots

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life - Steve Jobs, Stanford commencement speech, June 2005

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle - Steve Jobs (Stanford commencement speech, June 2005)

You must believe for great things in your life. Confidently moving in the direction of your dreams. Believe in yourself and have faith from your heart and above that your imagination will produce the life you want to live, and know that all possibilities are possible with that mindset - T.S.Garp

Let There Be Peace

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace -Jimi Hendrix

I'm reminded of the power of words, wisdom, and ideas. That during great times of turmoil come great wisdom and insight like Jimi Hendrix's famous quote. The greatest force in the universe is love and comes from a Source that is both infinite and forever part of us. This invisible force has the power to manifest miracles in our lives and lift our spirits to a higher vibration of joy. Love is the Way!

Throughout human history the entire world has bared witness to negative effects from wayward individuals who follow the path "love of power" can do. Give peace and humble reverence to all of God's greatest creations, to everything, to everyone you meet, and to the person standing in the mirror - T.S.Garp

Living Beyond The Infinite

“Cosmic in our being and infinite beyond this illusionary dream. Each of us outside the confines called time. Cyclical in nature…reincarnated life after life after lifetime. Common is this knowledge for those who have remembered to go within and see. Question your reality and you will find those answers we’ve been forbidden to seek. This is the journey to oneness and we each walk our own path. Our destination is collective…regardless if you are a woman or a man. Division is a lower vibrational energy perception…we are all ONE…and we are all of the Divine plan.” ~ Mynzah

A really great artist and philosopher - T.S.Garp

Happy Chinese New Year!

The Year of the Dragon is here and get ready for very auspicious year. The sign of the Dragon begins on January 23, 2012. The Dragon is the most powerful of all the signs in Chinese astrology known as the great protector over evil and has driving forces of passion and ambition as its ruler. The Dragon is the fifth in the Chinese Zodiac. Consider a divine beast. Dragons are honored and respected. A karmic sign Dragons are geared for relationships and attracting many loyal friends. Dragons are self-sufficient and not into conformity. Dragons are imaginative, emotional, healthy, expressive, cool-headed, hard-working, seeking challenges, generous, risk-takers, and lucky, the energy and likeness of which is bestowed this new year to all the other zodiac signs.

During the Year of the Dragon is good for business endeavors, careers, bold plans, new projects, new ideas, health, wealth, and good for relationships, new romances, weddings, commitments, communication, and taking the initiative. The Dragon also represents immortality, happiness, and fertility. Many people around the world are out having babies at this time to guarantee their child’s good fortune, while others are limiting the number of babies, but either choice is right for the parenting individuals. The Year of the (water) Dragon is very powerful and actually promises a successful year for most other signs not born during the 12 year cycle of the Dragon. Very similar to Western astrology the Chinese astrological signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Nearly all the signs will see some level of good fortune rise this year.

The celebration of the Dragon goes back 5000 years and last 15 days long. A great year for seekers of a better career, more education, more luck, promising ventures, romance (for married and unmarried), and full of spiritual growth, makeovers (Feng Shui living), new places, new excitement, new purpose, and new prospect. The Year of the Dragon is full of hope, realizing dreams, and allowing you to follow your passion, giving you strength to boldly go beyond your self with a steady gradual climb being mindful of not over doing it, but curving all ventures with an equal balanced of health. So make the most of this festive year and be happy and prosperous!

Be The Inspiration

Wheels are set in motion and the train has left the station. Time doesn't slow down or stop its forever climb into the future. Better to set your clocks and eyes on the right doors to your own personal freedom. The most talked about year "2012" has arrived and is slated to be a very interesting time indeed. This could be a very auspicious year for some of us and most of it can be if we remain positive. The key is to believe that even in the hardest and darkest of times, even in the face of setbacks, there is always an answer, and a light at the end of the tunnel guiding you into the direction you want to be in or need to go in. Time to jump-start that part of your mind that says I need to go here in order to grow and live the life I need to be living.

Make the start of this New Year an all encouraging one! Begin this January with renewed strength, renewed determination, and renewed enthusiasm. Remember to make this the "ME" year and moment. So often people forget to live a little and get stuck in a simple routine, out of fear, out of preset or self-imposed obligations with lack of confidence to break the mold, and try something new or discover a better way to do something. Time to step it up a notch! Waste not the time we have and boldly make a new resolution of sorts. Be in the here and now. Start creating. Fill yourself with inspiration and keep helpful antidotes of passages, quotes, people, places, and activities that spark your mind and existence to full potential.

Live the entire year with purpose and hope - T.S.Garp.
