The Tao: Curiously Familiar

Reading Dr. Wayne Dyer’s: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao.

Richard Uzelac on Tao, Buddha, and Jesus Christ

Pukua with frame by Benoit Stella alias BenduKiwi

Actually my wife and I read it every morning with coffee, then we try to apply what we read during the day. It has become a tradition. we are on the 36th chapter and thus 36 days in a row of doing this.

There is something nice about doing something like this with Alexandra. It is a tradition and a habit now. Just that is a blessing of sorts.

Back to the book, the book is very thought provoking for both of us. It is about the Tao written 25 centuries ago by Lao Tzu, at least the version mentioned in the book. The Tao, from what I gather, is the natural flow of the universe. Taoism I believe sees the natural flow actually flowing through all humans. When we act in accordance with the Tao, all is well, it is as it should be. When we apply restrictions to it and try to control it, then all sorts of issues erupt. So the main thrust is to be ‘In the Tao’ and flow through life.

The ‘Curiously Familiar’ aspect of the Tao is that this Tao is in all of us, that we are born of the Tao, and we go to the Tao upon death. This reminds me, as a Christian, a believer in Christ, of his most profound statement to me, “The Kingdom of God is within You.” I always loved this statement. It means so much to me. It takes the power out of the hands of the Churches, Priests, Popes, et al, and puts it in your hands. God, Heaven, it is all within all of us. We all know what is right, what is correct. It is deep within our being our cells, atoms. We simply need to open ourselves up to God and let it flow through us.

I see this ‘flowing naturally’ in Buddhism, and it’s probably in dozens of other Religions and Teachings as well. The ‘Curiously Familiar’ line of continuity here gives me hope we are all on this path together and there is hope for us all, someday.

So I’m feeling especially blessed and loved by God today. I thought of righting about the race for the Presidency of the United States of America, Romney vs. Obama. I thought of writing about the virtues of being ‘almost’ a vegetarian. I even thought of writing about the plight of the small business owner in this election year. But, since I’m feeling so blessed (and Loved) by God, I think it would behoove me  to remunerate the revelation, don’t you think?

So here goes my imperfect list:

Thank You Jesus for setting the example of love and peace and caring and kindness and truth and faith for all that seek these attributes. Through all of my life, the many many highs, and the lows, you have been there, constant, steady and unwavering of your love for me and your desire that I be the best man that I can be. Even when my analytical mind wanders from faith from time to time, you are there ready to welcome me back.  The older I get the more I cherish your love.

Thank You Mom and Dad for giving me life. Thank you for loving me with all your hearts, I felt it constantly through the years we had together. I feel it now that you are both in heaven. Dad, you took me to the boat, to the races and you showed up at my track and wrestling meets, how cool!  Mom, you dressed me well, taught me that history and the arts are important, believed in my abilities 110% All of the time. Thanks for all of the love you two. None of us beyond Christ is perfect on this earth, and I love how we all overlooked our faults and chose to concentrate on our positives and bettering ourselves.

Thank You Alexandra, I love you with all my heaaaaaaart! 🙂 You are the sweetest most loving woman I’ve ever met. The love you show to Bailey is a blessing and the love you’ve shown me makes me a better man striving to be better every day of my life. Being with someone so unpretentiously healthy is almost shocking even after almost four years. I thank God we are a couple every day of my life.

Thank You Bailey, like the Grinch my heart grew several fold when you were born. I’m honored to have you in my life as you are a give from the ‘Grace’ of God. As with Alexandra, I work mainly to honor, protect, and support you to have a healthy, happy, with high self esteem and live a Godly fulfilling life.

Thanks to:

My brother Dave, you are the most positive guy I’ve met and your strength is a source of power for me. I will always be there for you Bro.

My brother Steve, you are a great father and husband. I will always respect and care for you.

Cathy Perow, I will always wish the best for you and wish we had a better relationship. Maybe we were put together for Bailey and are forever bound through her.  We accomplished that with God’s grace. Hopefully we develop grace in our relationship.

 

Tribute:

John Perow: You were a hero of mine. A quiet no ego soul. A World War II reluctant hero that landed on the beach at Normandy, Omaha Beach (gives me chills to write that), saw your best friend’s head blown off at the first sand dune, charged up that hill, killed Germans, took France, joined Patton’s Army for the Battle of the Bulge (just like Easy Company in ‘Band of Brothers’), marched into Berlin and took that. Then went to Eagles Nest, Hitlers lair in the mountains and secured that as well. But you never spoke of it, never showed any memorabilia. Never accepted the moniker of ‘Hero’ from me or others, just said all the ‘Heros’ died there, that you were just a lucky guy. You went to Penn State after that, got an engineering degree, became a rocket scientist. (How cool would it be at a party: “What are you a rocket scientist or something?” “Yes, actually, I am a rocket scientist.”  Moved to Thousand Oaks when it was hills with cow chips and raised two good kids, survived the death of a spouse, remarried and routed for Penn State football and America.” The Greatest Generation” was written about men like you.

 

Incomplete List of Thank You’s:

Steve and Kika Medvecki, Chuck Mote, Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman, Henry Miller, Adam Smith, the Chaux family, especially Santa Mamita, RealtyTech employees past and present, Rob Baumgardner, John Crane, Ali Soufi, Jasmin, Chris, Steve etc. Paul Childs, Pat Condell, Mitt Romney, Ronald Reagan, the Founding Fathers, Steve Klarish, Rob Kasenow, Joe Paterno, Cael Sanderson, Bob Holloway, Tim and Sharon, Rich and Robin, Dawn, Adolf C, Emerson, Thoreau,  Julius Caesar, Small Business Owners, Honest Abe

 

Thanks,

Richard

 

 

United States Soon to have Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the World

Hi Friends,

I came across this article in the www.AmericansForTaxReform.com website by way of the www.DrudgReport.com  website. I just had to copy and paste it into my blog.  I don’t usually do this but I am including for attribution and linkbacks so I think it’s fine with all.

One Month to Go Until We Have the World’s Highest Corporate Tax Rate

Just one month from today, the United States will have the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, surpassing Japan.

CLICK HERE to join the fight to stop Obama’s out of control massive tax and spend agenda.

Just one month from today, Japan will lower their corporate income tax rate from 39.5 to 35 percent.  When they do so, the United States will officially have the dubious distinction of possessing the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, a federal/state integrated rate of 39.2 percent.

To put that in perspective, the average in the developed world (OECD) is only 25 percent.  Our six major trading partners–Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, and France–will all have a lower rate than we will have.  As a result, capital and jobs will continue to flow overseas, rather than staying here to create jobs, increase wages, fund pensions, invest in new business, or grow nest eggs.

Country Corporate Income Tax Rate
United States 39.2%
OECD Average 25%
Canada 27.6%
Mexico 30%
Japan 35%
Germany 30.2%
France 34.4%

President Obama last month proposed a plan to raise net taxes, but in the process lower the U.S. corporate rate to about 32 percent.  That simply isn’t worth it.  In exchange for a jobs-killing net tax hike, the Obama plan would still leave us with a tax rate higher than the OECD average, and higher than all our major trading partners except Japan and France.  No thanks, Mr. President.

Richard Uzelac’s Top Ten List for Middle-Aged Men’s Health: Number One: Water!

1. Drink Lots of Water:

Drink filtered or alkaline enhanced water.  I could have started with breathing but even a man that doesn’t know how to breath properly still knows how to breath enough to stay alive.

The next priority is drinking water. We can survive weeks on no food, but only a few days without water. Water makes up over 95% of us and yet, most men refuse to concentrate on getting enough good clean water. Water Cleans the body, improves your skin, makes you stronger, younger, increases cognitive performance and increases energy.

One reason for obesity is that most people confuse being hungry with being thirsty. Often when we feel hungry, we are in fact just thirsty. Obesity would take a tumble if all men just started drinking at least 64 oz of water daily and not grabbing a snack every time the feel a bit of ‘hunger.’

How to drink it: Try drinking up to 30 minutes before you eat. This allows your body to create the digestive juices your body needs to digest your next meal, drinking lots of water right before a meal just dilutes the digestive juices which is counter productive to the digestive process.

Then try to drink no sooner than 90 minutes after a meal. This again allows your body to digest your food properly before you rehydrate.

Also, do not drink much at all during a meal. This avoids diluting the digestive juices during your meal.

So the most important thing you can do for yourself (besides breathe) is drink clean water.

Did you know? Guess what, all those fancy lotions women and some men wear on their faces don’t really improve you skin? Their main reason for being is to KEEP IN THE WATER that you already drank. So applying $130 face cream and body lotion is pointless if you are chronically dehydrated. You are just keeping the leather from hardening.
