Allusion to Quetzalcoatl!


Very interesting and cool

prehistoricworldofyajur

Sorry friends I couldn’t write a blog for another extra week (after Out of Office-2) as I had mild conjunctivitis. This time I haven’t forgotten, the answer to the question of the week is:

1)      As a weapon

2)      As resonance chambers for making sounds

3)       As an air reserve while under water

So, today’s prehistoric animal is not a dinosaur….. It is… Quetzalcoatlus!!!

The name Quetzalcoatlus means “Allusion to the serpent god Quetzalcoatl”.  It lived about 80-65 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous Period. Quetzalcoatlus was the largest known flying creature of all time with a wingspan up to 10 metres. It weighed about 100kgs. Its habitat is Inlands, near rivers and lakes. Fossils were found in Texas and Mexico. Quetzalcoatlus flapped its wings to get into the air, but once it was airborne, its huge wings enabled it to soar on currents of warm air. Quetzalcoatlus’s…

Epilepsy Foundation Calls For Legal Access To Medical Marijuana


Peer 2 Peace

The Epilepsy Foundation of America is calling for an end to federal
restrictions on medical marijuana, in light of its potential benefits
for treating uncontrolled epilepsy.

On Thursday, the foundation released a statement pushing for legal access to medical marijuana nationwide.

“If a patient and their doctor feel that marijuana is their best treatment option then they need to have safe, legal access to medical marijuana and they need that access now.”

English: Medical marijuana neon sign at a disp...

The statement, written by Epilepsy Foundation CEO Philip M. Gattone and Chair Warren Lammert, notes that clinical trials have already begun on a marijuana-derived chemical called cannabidiol (CBD).

But federal restrictions make studying the chemical unnecessarily difficult, the statement continues. And while Lammert’s daughter is lucky enough to be one of the children enrolled in these trials, many others must wait for final FDA approval.

Some families have uprooted their lives to obtain CBD oil through Colorado’s medical…

Peace is always possible

Peace is always possible

“Help  me to serve, Thy Cause,

O Spirit of Guidance, throw Thy divine light on my path.

Open my heart, that Thy spirit it may reflect.

My life is changing and taking a better turn.

My mind is still, my thought steady, my sight is keen, my life is balanced.

Harmonize my soul, Lord, with all people and with all conditions.

My body is healed, my mind fortified,

and my soul is illuminated by the grace of God.

Fortify my heart.

Give me a new life and new inspiration,

that I may see in life Thy divine inspiration.

Make my heart Thy Divine temple.”

—Hazrat Inayat Khan

If we would be willing to do this we would save the life of our planet

If we would be willing to do this we would save the life of our planet

Last year, a very dear friend traveled to Turkey. She brought me home a book of Words of Wisdom from Mawlana. I thought I would share some of them with you today.

“The cloud’s shadow falls on the earth: the shadow never consorts with the moon.

“The Divine Love is the Sun of perfection: the Divine Word is its light, the creatures are as shadows.”

“All the wise have said this same thing: the wise man is a Divine mercy to created beings.”

” How shall a berry without kernel become a sapling? The soulless form is naught but phantasy.”

” There are no limits to your being.

Only those you ascribe to yourself.

There are no limits to your understanding,

Only those that are due to trying  to understand with the mind.

There is no limit to your light.

Except the dark shadows of the ego cast upon the sky which we call the self.

Shake your soul! Awaken it from slumber!

The time has come to awaken to your divine being.”

—Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
