Earthquake in Mexico

A Facebook friend named Xavier in Mexico wrote: "I jumped out of bed 1 minute before it started to sway. People were literally screaming their way down the stairs. I had never felt anything like this - just came back upstairs 6th floor - and I am vigilant..."

Terri in Chicago wrote: "The earthquake is a tie-in to Good Friday for Catholics in Mexico. Christ died on the cross and the earth quaked according to ancient writings."

  7.5 magnitude earthquake strikes in southern Mexico   CNN - April 18, 2014
A powerful earthquake shook central and southern Mexico on Friday. The US Geological Survey calculated its magnitude at 7.5 and said it was centered near the Pacific resort of Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for the Easter holiday. An Associated Press reporter said it was felt strongly in the resort city but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. The quake shook Mexico City for at least 30 seconds, with buildings swaying as people fled high rises and took to the streets. Because of the Easter holiday, that city was less crowded than usual. Mexico City is vulnerable even to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds that quiver as quake waves hit.

If Free Will existed in physical reality - we would be free. Life as we know it would be different for most people. Humans are programmed to believe they have free will, to bring hope, but it is all part of the illusion. You are your programmed DNA codes.

This is why ...

This is why I don't want to remarry ...
As of late I have read couples who are very happy - some married - others living together. Having been happily married for 20 years, I know that marriage can work when both partners are emotionally balanced and grow together. When I started my metaphysical journey, I knew it would not fit in with the responsibilities of marriage. I wanted to be free and I still feel the same. As a symbol of that, I bought my navy Mustang, pictured below. Through the years there have been clients and friends who have pushed the concept of meeting a man, settling down, and getting married. They thought that was my road to happiness. When I read these clients, or spoke to these friends, I hoped they didn't breach the subject of marriage with me. And so the years passed ... now many of them are divorced or widowed. The funny thing is, none of them want to marry again!!!

This is why I stopped teaching .... I love to teach, but spent at least half of my time dealing with the issues of students, parents, and administration. I later became a teacher to adults versus children - something I still embrace.
Teaching to optimize learning or control misbehavior? Scale of disruptive behavior in schools seriously underestimated   PhysOrg - April 14, 2014
The true extent of poor pupil behavior in schools is seriously underestimated, according to an academic. The research raises the question of the extent to which there is a right to learn in classrooms. The researcher argues that behavior cannot be interpreted as satisfactory if some pupils are impeding the learning of others and if teachers are not able to teach the class in a way that focuses primarily on optimizing pupil learning rather than on control issues.
