What Does Love Mean to a Four-Year-Old? A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, “What does love mean?” The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think: “When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. “When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. “Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” “Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.” “Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” “Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.” “Love is when you kiss all the time. “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” “Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.” Karen – age 7 Like Loading...

The Egg Author's Note: The Egg is also available in the following languages: The Egg By: Andy Weir You were on your way home when you died. It was a car accident. And that’s when you met me. “What… what happened?” “You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. “There was a… a truck and it was skidding…” “Yup,” I said. “I… I died?” “Yup. You looked around. “More or less,” I said. “Are you god?” “Yup,” I replied. “My kids… my wife,” you said. “What about them?” “Will they be all right?” “That’s what I like to see,” I said. You looked at me with fascination. “Don’t worry,” I said. “Oh,” you said. “Neither,” I said. “Ah,” you said. “All religions are right in their own way,” I said. You followed along as we strode through the void. “Nowhere in particular,” I said. “So what’s the point, then?” “Not so!” I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. “Oh lots. “Wait, what?” “Sure. “Just me? | Listen to a Wall of Music © 2021 - Privacy - Terms Angel Messages - Ask An Angel Family tree of the Greek gods Key: The essential Olympians' names are given in bold font.

Mathematicians don't answer questions by working them out on paper the way schoolchildren are taught to. That's particularly valuable at the start of a project, because initially the most important thing is to be able to change what you're doing. Your code is your understanding of the problem you're exploring. It's not easy to get a program into your head. Even the best programmers don't always have the whole program they're working on loaded into their heads. Avoid distractions. Even more striking are the number of officially sanctioned projects that manage to do all eight things wrong. It's not merely true that organizations dislike the idea of depending on individual genius, it's a tautology. Maybe we could define a new kind of organization that combined the efforts of individuals without requiring them to be interchangeable.

Working with Your Guardian Angels You can also ask others' guardian angels for help or assistance. If someone, say your boss or a coworker, is making life more difficult than you think is fair, ask their guardian angel to have them be nicer to you or leave you alone altogether. If you are having problems with a loved one, plead your case to their guardian angel and ask for their help to bring peace into the situation. Others' guardian angels are willing to help as long as our requests are positive and won't hurt the one they are to protect. Of course, I must add this won't always work. One day I was at the beach with a close friend and her son who was very sick with cancer at the time. But I said, "Wait, let me ask their guardian angels to tell them to leave that area." And she was even more amazed when, while we were walking up the hill, two more teens came into the park and started walking toward the swings. My friend never again doubted the power of guardian angels after that event.

Avia Venefica: Behind the Signs at Avia Venefica contends the universe and all its contents is a sacred energy that uses organic symbolism as a platform for expression. She actively pursues deeper meaning in life events (individually and collectively) and employs an archetypal, gestalt use of symbolic interpretation to gain insight into these life events. This pursuit has lead her to study literature (i.e.: Jung, Campbell) and philosophies of varying cultures (i.e.: Native American, Celtic) with a goal to understand symbolic meanings using naturalistic (pre-industrial) perspectives. "The Divine is always communicating with us. Avia proposes, that by learning various cultural and archetypal meanings of symbols, we can utilize those meanings for guidance in solving real-life problems. Avia has an undergraduate degree in anthropology and has been an understudy in several tribal and spiritual organizations. A Message From Avia Hi Everybody! My writings here and on my blog are a result of all that poking around. UPDATE!
