“We Have Too Many Choices”
I was speaking with a young man, asking him how he viewed our world today. He said, “We have too many choices. I've spoken with my grandparents, they said when they were young, life was simple, mom's were home taking care of the family, Dad went to work, the children were taken care of, the neighborhoods were friendly.”
What have we done?!. Created a generation of people who hadn't found a purpose? Not knowing what direction to head into?
I grew up in Los Angeles California, I was born in New York in 1942; family arrived in Los Angeles the summer of 1945. I was 2 ½; my family and I lived in a neighborhood of apartment buildings. The one my family lived in was six units. Each unit had anywhere between two and four children. We lived in harmony, being in L.A. We could play outdoors almost all year. Sweet!.. Mom was home. I was the youngest of three. Eight of us all together living in a two bedroom, one bath apartment, everyone was content; I only remember being happy, mom and daddy happy.
We had a freedom to explore; of course we stayed on our block. Until we were ten, then we were allowed to adventure out, meaning, around the block, or the next block over. We didn't argue when mom or daddy told us something, we listened, which made live blissful.
There weren't many choices, there wasn't money for 'things', and we didn't want 'things'. Our imagination carried us through out the day.
Too many choices! This is what the young generation has to deal with. Do I experiment with drugs? My parents won't care; they drink themselves into oblivion, so why would they care? They don't ask me about my life, and frankly, I don't want to talk to them, that's all they do is judge me. There's really no one to talk to. Life's a bitch, no one cares, so why should I care what happens to me, they wouldn't give a damn if I died…
These are some of the thoughts that young people think about, they don't know there are people who do care, who want to see them thrive. When I have a dream, my desire is to have those that I respect support my dream. Doesn’t have to be their dream, my dream is my dream, as your dream is yours.
My desire at this time of our Evolution is to support all people who have a dream, expand their consciousness so they see beyond their now thoughts. Who are you? Why are you here? What is your purpose? Do you have clear answers to these questions? If your answer is Yes my hat is off to you. If No, then I suggest you ask yourself these questions, see what comes up. What will the answers be?
When we return to Eden, our lives will once again be simple. Fewer choices... No more electronics. Children playing with one another; looking at one another, rather then speaking to one another on devices that filters out all connections. It’s the physical connection I'm speaking about. There's so much joy in children’s faces when they interact with other children. Being silly, playing hide 'n' seek. Truly, it’s amazing when a child is encouraged to use their imagination.
Imagine our world where love resides, harmony, contentment; joy is the order of the day.
Our Thoughts Are Our Own Creation
Where do these thoughts come from? It can be seen that ‘our’ creation comes from ‘habits’ through repetition, patterns that originated themselves from every corner we’ve traveled. These patterns organize themselves as the DNA strands that connect into the folds of our unconscious thinking, perpetuating these patterns, habits.
All that resides on Mother Earth could be considered habitual, trees experiencing each season; they know what region they flourish best. Flocks of birds flying to their next destination, how do they know this?
Fish spawning; knowing precisely when to swim up river every year at the same time, how do they know!?!
Almostall life on Mother Earth, with one exception, follows the rules of nature. ‘MAN’; …having a habitual desire for power? This video brought more clarity then any other I’ve seen! Take the time to view this, please!
On the 12th of December 2012, Consciousness moved from, ‘mine, greed, power,’ to ‘ours’ ~ the collective Oneness. We’ve awoken to our knowing that lack had been perpetuated onto us. With our consciousness awoken to this reality we have an abundance of everything needed to sustain ourselves. Sharing all we need in this thriving world!..
When Love is shared, harmony is the path all travel on.
Here’s something else I see… “Our words, deeds and actions”, when coming from Love, our Soul takes the front seat. Conversely, if our words, deeds and actions come from ‘fear’, what you might be hearing is an untruth, an illusion… Change the channel. Truly it is that easy, notice what your thoughts are, do they reside from your ‘soul’ or your mind, when you ‘feel’ good, centered, filled with loving thoughts, you know how wonderful these feelings are, and if you’re like me, you want to share all those wonderful feelings. Go share a hug with someone! Go!.. I’ll wait.
On the 21st December 2012, we will have completed a 25,627 year cycle. Consciousness!.. Our continued perspective that has gotten us to this ‘space and time’ is continuing our adventure into the ‘unknown’. This had been our method of remembering more truths. As stated, ‘God is everywhere, God is everything’… For anyone who ‘groks’ this, you know you are god, you are everywhere, you are everything!.. I AM everywhere, I AM everything!.. Makes life easy to grok...
Who are you being right now? Are you feeling Mother Earths love for you, and you in turn shining your love toward yourself? This love energy filters around you, with magnificent golden light. Allow yourself to ‘feel’ yourself!.. Feel yourself loving yourself. Close your eyes. Feel and see the golden light radiating onto your entire being of oneness.

BLESSING: Today I remember the source of my life, the One Self, and rest easy knowing that this Self knows what to do and how to do it. I am, after all one with, infinite intelligence, absolute power to accomplish, and endless, total love. Whatever my needs, the Self knows how to fulfill them. In fact, it already has given all that it is and all that it has for me to use and know and enjoy and become.
Rather than spending my time in making things different, I spend my time in making ~me~ different. I open my eyes to the presence of spirit, open my heart to the love of spirit, and open my mind to the wisdom of spirit. Choosing to live in this way, from a spiritual point of view, I discover that whatever challenges I face are as nothing to the power and presence that is within me.
Thank God for this knowing! I give thanks to the One Beloved Spirit for its immediacy…its presence; it is my constant companion, and for this I am ever glad. And so it is.

Hi, my name is Ray Sutton, a 5th generation baker and creator of NOW Bakery... which stands for “Nourishing Our World.” Growing up watching my uncle and grandfather in the bakery as a kid, I developed a fascination for baking. The enjoyment of baking is deeply embedded in my DNA and in my heart and soul as well, however, my passion and vision goes far beyond just pleasing the taste buds. It’s about nourishing our bodies, our brains, our soul and our world.
So that’s why each of my recipes are designed absent of gluten and dairy, made from organic ingredients that are extraordinary to the pallet. Each sweet bite of NOW cookies are completely rich, moist and delectable, bite after tasty bite. Try each flavor, I think you’ll agree.

You are Life passing through your body, passing through your mind, passing through your soul. Once you find that out, not with logic, not with the intellect, but because you can feel that Life - you find out that you are the force that makes the flowers open and close, that makes the hummingbird fly from flower to flower. You find out that you are in every tree, and you are in every animal, vegetable, and rock. You are that force that moves the wind and breathes through your body. The whole universe is a living being that is moved by that force, and that is what you are. You are Life.
—Don Miguel Ruiz
Now that you know who you are, that your life is the force that creates all
there is, all there ever has been, and will be, you might ask, 'now what?'
You are the only one that can answer that question, being there's no
separation that exists in every breath that is taken, breath the trees,
flowers, rocks, the four legged, two legged's, the winged ones, crawly ones.
The only thing that would or could keep you separate is your mind.
We've come to this 'time and place' by choice. . .
I've been writing a blog daily, committed to have my words permeate into and
around the world. . . empowering one another has become an issue for all of us.
Find your center, be empowered.
To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.
