Ramona Lea Le Pore-who is my mother,  who this newsletter was named after, has advanced Alzheimer’s disease.  That’s me on the right and mom and I had a wonderful time together.  I knew that all we had was NOW because the future wasn’t guaranteed. I also knew I couldn’t halt the progression of the disease,  but I could enlighten and educate others to hopefully prevent others from having it, or detect it early on.

What do you love to do? I mean what are you passionate about?

When you take the time discover what those things are, you’ll be closer to figuring out what you should be doing for a living. If you make your living doing things you love then it’s not work at all, but you’re really fulfilling a purpose that you were meant to be doing on this earth. What do you think your purpose is?

Do you have the computer open up Microsoft Word and start writing. It isn’t important what the words are, write what’s within your heart.

You can also use one of the many writing apps on smartphone, tablets, iPods or iPads. That way you can write wherever you go, when the thought or idea strikes you.
If you don’t have any this technological devices, you can simply get a notebook at the grocery store or office supply and they’re really good pen, one that’s very comfortable in your hand. And write everyday, about your life about the way you feel then watch what happens. You’ll be on the road to self discovery and poems might emerge, ideas for a book, or you can elaborate on the passions in your life and what makes you most happiest when you do it.

I hope you have a fantastic day in your corner of the world.

From Google Play Books comes Abraham Lincoln by James Morgan.

Abraham Lincoln, James Morgan.
https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=kzoqAAAAYAAJ

I listened to 5 chapters of the 36 in the book about one of the greatest presidents who ever lived. Did you know that Abraham Lincoln’s father hated books and thought education was a total waste of time? He did.

Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was as strong physically as he was intellectually? He was.

Did you know that topics like slavery and the concept of people being owned outraged him? It did.

Did you know that he walked 9 miles to go to school in one day and cherished books education? He did.

Click on the link and you will be able to read about the man called Abraham Lincoln and with the updates Google has made to their entire Play Books series, and through dedicated advancements in optical character recognition, you can now choose to have the book read to you. This is phenomenonal. Now all of us, even the blind,  can hear a book being read to them, and not rely on braille or books The Braille Institute provides.

Through this and Librivox, having real volunteers reading the books, there is no reason any body should be bored any where.
I like reading the text and listening because it moves you along in the book and the book gets read.
Also,  I as a writer, can analyze how the author crafted his or her words and listen.

If you’re a teacher or instructor and Google Play Books and Librivox are not being employed, then now you can.

Reading opens your mind,  educates and helps you empathize and experience the world’s triumps, tragedies, adventures and other things far better than any TV ever could.
I don’t own a television set. Too many people own them the thing owns them in that they sit complacent in front of it.

Nothing wrong with watching a good movie or show or cable Animal Planet, The Food Network, The History Channel, Discovery. .something where you learn something or a really great movie.
Just make sure you are one who LIVED LIFE and doesn’t merely watch it in front of you.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

http://librivox.bookdesign.biz/book/75

All the people who read this very controversial book about the horrors of slavery rated it 4 plus out of 4. Nobody has the right to own anyone and in today’s age of 2015, this marks a very sad time in history which I, thank God is behind us. I want to see all human slavery end everywhere,  nomatter what country.  That, and human trafficking,  which is the same thing really,  just another word for it. A euphamism, If you will.

This book is read 18 hours and many listened to this book while working and claimed the hours passed like they were flying by.

Read this book….or listen to the book and experience the classic book on Librivox. Just click the link and you will be able to download the book or simply play it or share the book with others. The more we read and share classic literature and books we have read with a valid, important message, the more sophisticated we will become as a people and I hope, one day, topics like slavery will be dead forever.

Paulette Motzko’s Thanksgiving Story

https://goo.gl/photos/5MhBCAdta8oBZTP98

What I have found in my over five decades of living, like decades on a rosary, you can have everything in the world but if you don’t have what matters you never going to be happy. I’ve had bigger tables in my life, I’ve had bigger houses in my life but it’s not about the never ending quest entertaining things. That’s not what life’s about. About doing what you love and helping people and about making the world a better place, if even in a small way. Often times when you’re doing what you love, are you helping somebody else something good happens to you, and you don’t even try to make it happen. I believe in God and I know I have experienced more than one miracle in my life. You could say I’m a walking miracle. I’ve almost died 5 times in my life, but I am here to tell this little story.

It’s a story of thankfulness,  of gratitude, & a friendship. I got friends that are family and I called him framily. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving no matter who you were with. Make everyday the day to be thankful and day to get your blessings.

Today’s my day that I do laundry and errands and opening boxes and organizing because tomorrow I’ve got a lot of websites to write. Today’s my day that I do laundry and errands and opening boxes and organizing because tomorrow I’ve got a lot of web contents to write.

As I was getting tired of doing laundry today, I thought again and I was grateful had clothes to wear.

I am sending love where ever it is needed in the world.

If thoughts could only make people quit killing one another- wouldn’t that be great?

If prayers could help pave the way to peace, we could havd a better, safer world.  I wish it could,  but all these things,  because I am a Christian and belief that when people combine those thoughts and prayers with dedicated action that affect your neighborhood in a positive way, the world changes, little by little.

I hope that the days of mass murdering in places where innocent people are only trying to enjoy themselves,  one day end.
I think of the people in Paris each day and I pray for them.

I hope and pray that sweet children one day will be safe going to their classes again.

I hope the sick,  demented people who do these kinds lovecrimes seek mental help, so that they can get the help they need to get better.

I hope, that as a country, and I speak for The United States of America, that we get wiser to isolating and detecting when people exhibit symptoms of mental illness and help them recover. Focusing in gun control only or the laws regarding obtaining a hand gun is only a part of the problem. How can we help prevent these incidents so that everyone, no matter what country they live in, can walk the streets easier and have the peace of mind that is their birth right.

What are your suggestions on this?
Very intelligent and sophisticated people read my blogs, and the more we exchange ideas, working towards a better tomorrow, the better and safer the world becomes. This is not simply for us now, but for our children’s children and people who will live in the future we will never know.
We have the capacity to create a chain reaction of positivity that will affect generations to come, if we only want to.

Autumn Thanksgiving Photo Montages by Paulette L Motzko

When you go through a hard period, when everything seems to oppose you…when you feel you can’t bear one more minute, NEVER GIVE UP. That’s the time your course will divert.

Rumi says : “When you go through a hard period, when everything seems to oppose you, … when you feel you cannot even bear one more minute, NEVER GIVE UP!
Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!”

Walt Whitman’s Essay called Nature is A Great Read

http://librivox.bookdesign.biz/book/3390

I listed to this book called “Nature” on Librivox,  a free app you can download from Google Play Store.

Walt Whitman carved his words like Michelangelo carved marble to make a statue.

If you enjoy subjects like philosophy and how we are interconnected on the planet, you’ll love this book.

It is free to use Librivox and people all over the world volunteer to read the books.

This took me about two and a half hours to listen to the whole book.

The time passed really fast.

I hope you enjoy Nature by Walt Whitman as much as I did.

Life’s Weaving Author unknown

Life’s Weaving
Author unknown

My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me;
I may not choose the colors,
He knows what they should be
For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side,
Well I can see it only
On this, the under side.

image

Sometimes he weaves sorrow,
Which seems strange to me;
But I will trust his judgement,
and work on faithfully;
Tis He who fills the shuttle,
He knows just what is best;
So I shall weave on earnest
And leave Him with the rest.

At last, when life is ended,
With him I shall abide,
Then I may see the pattern
Upon the upper side;
Then I shall know the reason
Why pain with joy entwined,
Was woven in the fabric
Of life that God designed.

Verse from “Lift Up Your Heart” , Salesian Missions, 1976

Good morning Psalm 27:1-2 VOICE – Psalm 27 – A song of David. The Eternal – Bible Gateway

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%2027:1-2&version=VOICE

As I was saying my morning prayers and meditations I read this Psalm of David in the translation I’d never The Voice, which I really loved.

On this day, Thursday,  November 19th, 2015, may you be richly blessed.
The sun will rise at 6:21 a.m. here in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA but no matter where you live may your next 24 hours be full of all that’s good in life.

As an American I am Praying For All the People in Paris

image

My maiden name is Le Pore and according to my sister’s genealogy research, I have more French in my ancestry on both sides-mother and father, and grandparents than Italian.  My great grandmother’s last name on my mother’s side is De Jeanette and from the old, black and white photos I have, she was a beautiful lady.

We are all connected in one form or another is my point.

My room mate Alberto’s sister lives in Paris, and so we have been saying extra special prayers. My friend and colleague Jonell Galloway was in Paris and I am relieved she is fine.

I hope and pray that all the people in Paris are safe and the war and discord soon ends completely.

I also hope and pray our political leaders use wisdom to aid the suffering from either a natural disasters or the tragic incidences in Paris and elsewhere. I pray wars will be something only history books write about and the fear that children, mothers and fathers now face will be a thing of the past.

I pray and hope that everyone in the world can once again walk the streets in peace knowing the worst is far behind them.

I am so happy you enjoy the stories I share on Totally Inspired Mind too.

Ask courageous questions, do not be satisfied with superficial answers. – Carl Sagan

image

Image found on Facebook , from the Facebook page The Universe of Carl.

The late great Carl Sagan give so much to the scientific world, astronomy and so many other areas. His words will be remembered for all time, I know in my life. He believed in cherishing now and that when we die there is no afterlife.

He believed in making more of the life you have on earth and to make your actions and contributions matter now.

I was raised Christian and I am Christian but still that’s a wonderful way to live your life. He raised his daughter that way and no matter what you believe, making the most of each day and your life now,  is a good ideology.

We are all interconnected on this planet in one way or another, and caring about your neighbor only unifies our world, making it a more happy and peaceful place to live.

I have two words to remember for all who live in Paris. …”stay strong”…

You will move on and though a very sad tragedy, the world is praying for every person in France now…I know I am and will continue to.

I have eihht other words to remember-

You will in time heal from all this.

As I said my nightly prayers tonight,  many of my prayers were directed towards France…..

Know you are not alone and if you are alive and breathing,  you are blessed.

HOPE: We cannot see tomorrow, but we have this day… To laugh, to love, to hope.

As I was saying my morning prayers I spotted this inspiring book mark I bought years ago at The Deseret Book Store when I lived in Sandy, Utah.

We can do everything in our power to guarantee we will live a good life NOW though, by treating others fairly, as though they were us. Thinking before we do something, at what the reprocussions might be, and using powerful visualization techniques every day, picturing ourselves doing what we want to do most.  Combined with very well thought out actions, your visualizations will manifest themselves to reality with perseverance and dedication on your part.
