Newton’s laws states: For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction.
This is indisputable!
However, most people do not realize that this unquestionable law of physics also applies to every aspect of our lives and the world around us!

Our Hearts



Our hearts were made and given to us by our parents love and a gift from God.
No matter what life brings our way, they are led by and guided by our hearts.
Our hearts determine our conscious perception.
All of our lives, from my birth to this day and even on into the future has been, is and will be guided by our hearts.
Our choices to be, do, think, say and interpret are all led by our hearts.

It isn’t perfect, or is it?


Life and the way we interpret it are influenced by the way the world influences our interpretation of everything.
So, is the world right or our hearts?
If we each existed in a vacuum of isolation, the answer would be much clearer. We would only have ourselves to gauge and be influenced by.
But in our world, we have many interactions that influence and introduce potential chaos.
This can greatly add confusion to our perception.
From birth to death, no matter what life brings us, our perception is what determines what our lives really are.

Bad things have, can and will happen.


But with the opportunity of our perception, we have not only a choice of how to view them, but also what to do with them.
Newton’s laws states: For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction.
This is indisputable!
However, most people do not realize that this unquestionable law of physics also applies to every aspect of our lives and the world around us!
One of my sons died. It was very tragic and we suffered deep pain and loss. Even though it has been almost twenty years, the pain is still there.
What can you do with that?
His service was held at our local church. The building was filled. Every seat taken, the isles filled, even a few were outside. There was no way we knew all of these people!
He died from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) I had no idea what it was at the time. You can bet that most of the parents found out what it was at that point. There are things that can be done and things not to do to help avoid it. I know lives were saved.
I also got grief consoling and in the process provided grief consoling to other SIDS parents. This benefited them, their families and also, me and my family.
I was asked to do a radio show to aid and promote public awareness. I know lives were saved and grief was avoided.
I know, parents stuck in the busy cycle of life were asked by their kids, “Can you play with me for a while?” “No, sorry, not right now. I have to…..You know what? I have some time. Let’s play!” and they benefited.
SIDS main contributor seems to be from re-breathing spent breaths. It used to be called “Winter death” or “Crib Death”. In nature, sometimes there are atmospheric conditions where the air is heavy and stagnant. This can sometimes be observed in cities when the pollution settles in and on them. It doesn't rise or move away from a breeze. (Thermal inversion) You may notice it when someone smokes a cigarette and the smoke just lingers in that area. This can happen more often indoors.
A baby has a very small lung capacity. It moves very little air volume and at low force. When parents add soft comforters, mattresses, pillows and crib liners, the baby settles into them and ends up lying in a depression. This gives their breath a chance to pool. At that point the baby re-breathes spent breaths and slowly goes into unconsciousness and then dies.
I searched for other ways to help, to stop this, save lives and remove the grief involved for parents and family members. I devised a concept to incredibly reduce this from ever happening again.
A crib mattress sized air bladder, perforated with tiny holes on one side, attached to a small silent air pump from a fish tank. It is placed under the fitted sheet. The baby is dressed for the conditions, removing the need for air flow restricting bed dressings.
I had no money. But I really wanted to get someone to help me get this going. I shared my ideas with many people. One was the wife of a doctor in Rio Vista Fort Lauderdale Florida. I didn’t realize it, but they stole my idea! It is patented and being used to save lives. They don’t even know I know. My family and I could have and still could use some financial help, but what were my true motives? Save lives and prevent grief.
It Happened! Lives are being saved! Another positive reaction!
Even some of you reading this are parents and are now aware of this…even more positive ripples!
This is just one example of many I could give you. Please always work on growing this ability in your own hearts!

What can you do with the cards you are dealt?


No, I did not get my son back. Many things can’t be undone. But what can you do with the cards you are dealt?
How we choose to perceive each and every thing that happens to us and the world around us can be viewed from not just a 360 degree standpoint, but a spherical one.
If we “Choose” to see things in this perspective, we can always find the opposite reaction for all things in our lives and world. If we then use that, we can turn any negativity into positive change!
The choice really is ours! In this process we have great power to create the reality around us. Affect everything in our sphere of contact and then, like the ripples from a pebble dropped in a pond, create even further reaching affects beyond our limited scope of vision.
Life is grand! Conceive it, believe it and you may certainly achieve it!

Dan - Touching, heartfelt, you have a generous and positive take on life despite suffering loss of your child and having your idea stolen. I too forgive and move on but tough to completely forget the injustices we are dealt with - siva

The bible says "Forgive", only a fool forgets! Wisdom comes from hardships. Mistakes are turned to lessons....when we learn from them.
A negative or angry attitude is never helpful or productive.
Thanks Siva
