Yeah, now I see! I'm more familiar with Japanese art than Arabic, and so you are right, my memory brought forth a Japanese term. Your name Eyass is a great name. So glad you are around! Also, I've noticed this group is growing, and all the newcomers seem to be really on the "same wavelength." I hope that isn't too Scooby Doo'ish of me to say. In any case, I'm excited to be here with you all, and please share anything and everything going on in your wing of the whole!
It's Ok Mr.Ty you made me Japanese by this name Eyan loool.
anyway I'd like to say what the name "Eyass" means.
It's an old Arabian name but it's so rare to find people who are called Eyass.
so my name is rare.
it is spelled like this "e-yas"
"in arabic" It means generally the critical period of the man's or woman's life.
and specifically the hopeless period of woman's life where the "menstrual cycle" stops forever.
"so the meaning briefly is the hopelessness and what a very nice meaning !!!!!"
I looked for a meaning in English and It was a coincidence that the baby of falcon is called "eyas or eyass" and I brought some videos about the nice "eyasses".
wish the best for all.
Sorry, I meant Eyass, not Eyan.
Welcome Angela/Nomad! So nice to see ya!
And Eyan... thank you so much for the beautiful and insightful words on love. Your words were so powerful and to the point. I really look forward to reading your future contributions!
It is sunny out, a beautiful May Saturday, I'm working down at the homeless shelter, but having a good shift with the great folks here, and the birds are singing so delightfully outside the office. Positive vibration!
love is that deep feeling that releases our talents and pushes us to understand ourselves.
love is the bridge that enables us to discover life secrets and human desires.
love is is a part of the "purpose of life"
and It may be central part so everything is connected with it.
all of us know what the life becomes when love is absent it will be boring,routine,senseless,
love is the secret key to the happiness so
no one will be happy without love.
you can give love and you can receive love
the only difference that love you give is coming from inside you and love that you receive is coming from inside the people who love you.

Greetings from Big Sky Country. My name is Angela and Ty told me about your group. So glad to jump on board and get to know you all.
Thanks for posting that very revealing message about how societies devalue human life and abuse basic human rights as their economies motivate a rough race to obtain and profit from natural resources. In the chapter Ourself in Relationship With Ourself, Being Ourself addresses the need for the strong wings of Ourself to help the weak. We all need to stand up to oppression and injustice in our immediate environments and communities, and work to strengthen human rights internationally as well. That is the level at which public policy improvements are important guarantees of certain changes. The line "On earth as it is in heaven" comes to mind, and let us not forget that we are the hands of creation that can build this world into a better world that is more harmonious. The old Eastern adage that everything is exactly as it is supposed to be because it "is" invalidates the stepping stone of social justice work: our powerful sense that things need to be changed when we witness injustice. Then when we have improved circumstances within society to decrease hunger, lack of proper medical and psychological assistance, etc., we can say things are "exactly as they are supposed to be," but to do so any sooner is just a form of denial which prevents collective action to decrease unnecessary suffering.

Since I've had folks in this group express surprise when they find out that Being Ourself is a book as well as a group, and also because the intention of the word Ourself isn't always clear, I thought I'd post these first two paragraphs of the book here on the bulletin board. Hope you enjoy... there are a lot more quotes on the www.beingourself.com webpage.
This is a book about Ourself. What do we mean by Ourself? Ourself is the one thing that is—everybody and everything, everywhere, as an absolute whole. Grammatically speaking, “our” is supposed to be followed by the plural “selves” because the English language presumes that “our” as a possessive adjective refers to ownership by a group of intrinsically separate individuals. Though we appear separate as we move about with seeming independence, a more comprehensive look reveals that all creatures and objects are like the teeth of a comb which appear separate along one side, but can clearly be seen to be different parts of the same one thing when viewed as a whole.
The tragic consequence of our language’s grammatical assumption of separateness is that we have a difficult time recognizing that one’s primary identity is not as a separate individual, but rather as an indivisible aspect of reality itself. Therefore, “our” in its most fundamental sense should be followed by the singular “self” since “our” taken to its broadest and most inclusive extreme refers to our fundamental identity, reality, as a singular whole. This all-inclusive identity might initially seem abstract or irrelevant, but by deeply and feelingly penetrating the illusion of separateness which most of us live our lives bound within, we burst into a vastness of being, understanding, and guidance unlike anything available within the isolating “me, myself, and I” framework of thought.
Time of our Father is not like ours a time to heal, a time of grief, or sorrow, a time of joy, we need the time of Peace in the world,we need a time of a helpping hand. One thing I Learn by the Brazil's, Is all money is God's not all church people do it. Give to others to help them in there hour of need. But my christian brother's in the God fearing church do. Give to those who need and you will be Blessed by God. handmaidenofgod
