The book of songs says: The harmonious sounds are shu and yung and my ancestor listened to them. Shu means pious and yung means peaceful.

If a man can for one day subdue himself and return to propriety, all under heaven will ascribe perfect virtue to him.” CONFUCIOUS –“Tones rise from the human heart, and music is connected with the principles of human conduct, therefore the animals know sounds but do not know tones, and the common people know tones but do not know music. Only the superior man is able to understand music.

I said, there’s nothing that I can do for you that you can’t do for yourself. He said, ‘Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that that would help’.

The elements themselves delight in music.”          CORPUS HERMETICA –“Say no longer that God is invisible. Do not speak thus, for what is more manifest than God? He has created all only that you may see it through the beings. For that is the miraculous power of God, to show Himself through all beings. For nothing is invisible, not even the incorporeal.

You have to use one hand to balance yourself and the other hand to hold onto the equipment and another DA AVABHASA –“This moment is the moment of reality, of union, of truth.

It functions beyond the thoughtmind level, deep within man. It is a primordial force; the root and fountainhead of life. This inner flame, this primordial energy, belongs to the cosmic dimension. This cosmic life-energy has been seen and experienced by intuitive men of wisdom. The challenge we face is to discover this hidden cosmic fire within us and to establish our kinship with the Supreme.”  DADA –“The life of a human being is a stream of thought-emotion activity and actions thereof. Ceaseless intention and actions are what human life is. Basically the mind is the outcome of past experiences and memories.

Patience begets strength and confidence and leads eventually to bliss.”          DADAJI AMIYA ROY CHOWDHURY –“God is within, in the deep recesses of our heart, in the form of the two sounds of Mahanam — Great Name. Mahanam is at the root of our respiration and all vibrations of the world are Mahanam. One sound, Gopal, appraises you of the supreme; the other sound, Govinda, of the beyond. This Mahanam is our real self, the guru. …This is the real diksha or initiation into self, but since we have forgotten it, an earthly diksha in the form of visualising the Mahanam is necessary to remind us. No earthly guru can initiate a person (give diksha). Mahanam is spontaneously manifested as and when it chooses.” DADI JANKI –“Integrity is a matter of considering the consequences of every action and of never being drawn mindlessly into anything.”    DADI JANKI –“Learning and teaching are players in the same game.

Then you will se how low it was.” DAG HAMMARSKJOLD –“Only he deserves power who everyday justifies it.”        DAG HAMMARSKJOLD –“The longest journey Is the journey inwards Of him who has chosen his destiny.” DAG HAMMER –“The longest journey of any person is the journey inward.” DAISAKU IKEDA –“A person, who no matter how desperate the situation, gives others hope, is a true leader.”    DAISAKU IKEDA –“From the beginning man and man, man and nature, man and the universe have been woven together like a sari an angel would wear. It is fine art that dazzles the eye, and only a poet can see/ the invisible threads of life.”        DAISAKU IKEDA –“I have determined to climb that mountain/ Therefore, choosing firm footholds day by day/ I go forward/ Because I know that to look lightly on reality/ May mean disaster,/1 work hard at my faith.”           DAISAKU IKEDA –“Like the sun/ always bright in heart,/ like the sea/ with a heart vast and wide,/ like the sky with a heart unendingly tall,/ like the flowers/ with a heart forever beautiful,/ with a heart set on happiness,/ like the wind/ be free!”           DAISAKU IKEDA –“Like the waterfall fierce/ like the waterfall unflagging/like the waterfall unfearing/ like the waterfall merrily/ like the waterfall proudly —a man should have the bearing of a king.”  DAISAKU IKEDA –“May you forge a solidarity that is,/ Like the Himalayas, majestic,/ Like the Himalayas, noble,/ Like the Himalayas, dignified, Like the Himalayas, composed.”           DAISAKU IKEDA –“Peace will be realised only by forging bonds of trust between people at the deepest level, in the depths of their very lives.”     DAISAKU IKEDA –“Strength is Happiness. Strength is itself victory In weakness and cowardice there is no happiness. When you wage a struggle, you might win or you might lose. But regardless of the shortterm outcome, the very fact of your continuing to struggle is proof of your victory as a human being.” DAISAKU IKEDA –“The ability to perceive the negative in oneself enables one to perceive the positive in others… we must acknowledge the good and evil within each of us. Even as we lock horns with a rival, we should be seeking to manifest the good and obliterate the bad. The power of self- restraint can help us avoid conflict and estrangement and enable us to take a correct stance of mutual acceptance and respect.” DAISAKU IKEDA –“The sun rises the moon shines serenely / Young man! Never give in to your despondent self/ but open wide the castle gates of your being/ and hold commerce with/ another world.”              DAIZUI MCPHILLAMY –“Shunyata is ku, emptiness or voidness. Nothing matters. Everything matters.”  DALE CARNEGIE – “Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain – and most fools do.” DALE CARNEGIE –“Did you ever see an unhappy horse?

There are so many things that could go wrong between now and 2012, but mainly 2012, and more specifically December of 2012. Would you believe December 21, 2012? Primarily the specific date comes from the Mayan long count calendar also known as Winaq May Kin which covers some 5,200 Mayan years or 5,125 Gregorian years. But, did the Mayans know what we know today about the bad mood that our Sun seems to be in?

The sun seems to be developing a severe case of acne and it’s not too happy about that. And if the Sun is in a foul mood, you can count on we her on planet earth hearing about it. While the Sun is some 93,000,000 miles away (thankfully), we feel the effects of any bad days it may be in. When such happens, scientist Roger Remy calls such mood breakdowns as “making mayonnaise”, or having eaten some bad mayonnaise. Whatever!

Let me tell you what we do know- scientifically.

1-The sun has an eleven year cycle.

2-Galileo was the first person to tell us this when he invented the telescope in 1610.

3-The cycle has a low end acne break out on the face or surface and a high end.

4-Bad things happen when the high end of activity breaks out and the acne boils fester big time!.

5-Since 1940 the festering peaks or outbreaks have become more severe.

6-In this current cycle which was to be in it’s low activity in 2005, the Sun went nuts!

So, the question we should ask ourselves as rational people is will we see something really bad come 2012 when the Sun is at it’s worst behavior? I mean as little as 0.5% increase in the Suns energy would take out all of our satellites and where would we be without our Blackberry? How much firepower advantage would our army have with “unguided missiles”?

Case in point. At the end of 2004, when the Sun was to be getting some acne relief, it threw a hissy-fit, belching out massive amounts of radiation. On December 30th a tsunami killed hundreds of thousands of people in the Indian Ocean. Things settled down as it should be until late summer when once again, radio-active blemishes appeared suddenly, just ahead of Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. Coincidence?

How about the massive solar radiation storm in March 1989 that took out the Hydro-Quebec power grid putting more than 6,000,000 Canadians in the dark? Coincidence? All this makes the Al Gore concept of Global Warming seem a bit trivial doesn’t it!

Scientists from all over the world have confirmed that the Sun has been more turbulent in the past 50 years (and increasingly so) than it has for at least the last 11,000 years. I wonder how they know that! And those same scientists say that the Sun will reach it’s peak eleven year cycle in 2012. Thee you go. More bad news! But, Grandma Chandra sees this as a time when man’s consciousness will be increased and we will somehow be able to spiritually-consciously alter the state of the universe.

Works for me. Let’s get on with it!
