How to Mentally Deal With "Evil" People?

My colored diagram of the 2007 Stantonbury Hill Crop Circle
At yesterday's weekly EFT get together a discussion ensued on how to handle "evil" people.

I am currently reading the book "Change Your Thoughts - Change Your Life" by Dr. Wayne Dyer. It is his interpretation of the Tao Te Ching. Imagine my surprise when today's verse offered the answer.
I found it in the 62nd verse. Here are the parts just literally jumped out at me.

"Where you perceive negativity, alter your view to see pure love and kindness that's mistakenly being directed to seek a sacred place in the material world."

"Practice forgiving, and avoiding judgment, when you see reprehensible or evil-minded ways."

"Take Lao-tzu up on his advice for dealing with those who appear to be wicked people by mentally separating the individuals from their toxic behavior. Remember that they are Divine creations of the Tao who simply believe that ego should control life. In your thoughts, erase the vileness, the wrongdoing, and the addictive or harmful actions; and allow those folks to just be there apart from their malevolent behavior. See the unfolding of the Tao in them, and picture them as innocent children who are overstimulated by ego's temporary stronghold. In your mind, forgive the evil conduct and make every effort to wrap loving arms around the children you see before you."

"Lao-tzu urges you to treat yourself in a similar manner: Cast out any behavior you dislike about yourself, allow your pain to be felt and absolve yourself. With these behaviors removed, visualize bracing yourself, and notice the radiant being of light who is yourself in your imagination. Practice elevating yourself by doling out kindness to others as well as yourself. This is the remedy for all evil."

Sleep Tip from the Mentalist TV Show

I like watching the Mentalist TV show and yesterday I got finally around to watch my latest recorded show. To my delight and surprise Patrick Jane's character gave this tip to help you fall asleep:

If you have falling asleep you can count sheep or on your in-breath say or think 1 and then when you breath out say or think 2. On your next in-breath say or think 1 and when you breath out say or think 2. Keep on repeating this and you will be surprised that when you wake up it is morning.

Give it a try and then connect with me on Facebook and let me know what happened . . .


How to Make Simple Square Foot Gardening Templates

I am just about ready to start planting my square foot garden. Until now I have used string and sticks to mark things, but then I got an idea of how I could easily make some templates from old plastic election signs. The material was easy to cut with a knife and a permanent marker would help with the design.

At first I thought that I would need a whole bunch of templates, but as I got going I realized that I could actually get away with only 2 templates.


First cut 2 12x12 inch pieces from the plastic signsDraw a grid: template 1: 3 rows and 3 columnstemplate 2: 4 rows and 4 columnsMark the center of each square of the grid by drawing diagonal linesUse the electric drill and a ½" drill bit and drill a hole at each center point.


Template 1

Grid of 3 row and 3 columns (9 plants - holes circled in blue)This can also be used for 1 plant per square foot (hole circled in black and then blue)





Template 2 This one is truly a multi-use templateGrid 4 rows and 4 columns (16 plants - holes circle…

Companion Planting Chart

Have you ever heard of companion planting? Wikipedia explains it very nicely:
Companion planting is the planting of different crops in proximity (in gardening and agriculture), on the theory that they assist each other in nutrient uptake, pest control, pollination, and other factors necessary to increasing crop productivity. Companion planting is a form of polyculture.

Companion planting is used by farmers and gardeners in both industrialized and developing countries for many reasons. Many of the modern principles of companion planting were present many centuries ago in cottage gardens in England and home gardens in Asia.
