Dreaming about Hollywood

It’s very good today to be in a warm apartment and to dream about Hollywood (Florida).

Everything is bright in the future!

Just look at the picture below.

013-640x480

Would you like one of the houses on it with a pool and palms?

Do you like speed?

Use any of the boats..

Please also remember that a beach is waiting for you.

Now close your eyes and dream.

You can add whatever else you want to the dream.

It’s all yours, nobody can take it from you!

Enjoy!

More Salvador Dali’s quotes +

I am working on a second post about Gala and Salvador Dali. I am reading what I found about them and trying to understand what really motivated both.

I’ll tell you soon about their relationship from my point of view (based on available information).

Some people asked me why it is necessary to know about lives of famous people.

My answer is simple: we must learn about people as much as possible because it can decide our fates. Today one person can be responsible for what happens with millions or billions people.

Just remember the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. At that time we were very close to the nuclear war.

Not long ago we learned that relationships between men and women can have very serious effect on the fate of our country (remember the presidential candidate Edwards and the head of CIA general Petraeus).

When I read today about people who want to become President of my country I ask myself: “Why do they think that they are capable? What motivates them? How can we decide who is the best person for the job?”

I am not strange. I am just not normal.

A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.

One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.

People love mystery, and that is why they love my paintings.

It is not necessary for the public to know whether I am joking or whether I am serious, just as it is not necessary for me to know it myself.

Let my enemies devour each other.

Salvador Dali’s quotes

The photo of Salvador Dali below shot by Carl Van Vechter in 1934 (courtesy of Wikimedia Commons).

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.

Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure – that of being Salvador Dali.

In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.

I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.

Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality.

Liking money like I like it, is nothing less than mysticism. Money is a glory.

What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.

Stars (quotes and my painting)

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman

Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars.

Gilbert Parker

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.

Henry Van Dyke

For age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.

Theodore Roosevelt

My first brush painting

You like it, don’t you?

What is this animal?

He has wonderful dreams, he is walking to stars!

I hope to learn to paint too.

Ask “Do I Want to Be Married?” Every. Single. Day.

Two weeks ago I read a post by Adriana Eissa: “Ask “Do I Want to Be Married?”. Every. Single. Day.”

I liked the post and suggested Adriana to enter it in my challenge “OUR WAYS“. She kindly did it.

Please read her post. In the nearest future I am going to ask you to vote on all entries in the challenge.

A Happy Heart and Soul

Sunset Girl. Photographer Unknown. Sunset Girl. Photographer Unknown.

Crazy talk, right? No. It’s actually sound advice.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the life long commitment of a beautiful, healthy, transformative marriage but it’s never a death sentence, never was supposed to be an obligation you no longer enjoyed or questioned.

When you wake up in the morning ask yourself…

“Do I want to be married?”

“Do I want the job I have?”

“Do I like the life I live?”

“Do I want to be here, this stage of my life?”

ASK IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND YOU’LL RECEIVE IMPORTANT ANSWERS.

If the answer is yes (and I hope it’s a yes) then you’ve recommitted yourself to something wonderful. Reinvest in that something wonderful with a fresh heart and open yourself to a new perspective.

You made the choice to continue, so do so with enthusiasm. Your resolve will be stronger for it. Appreciate that…

About leaders

Where are good leaders? Who of leaders in the West “knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way”?

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

John Quincy Adams

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

John C. Maxwell

Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.

Andrew Carnegie’s quotes

“He that cannot reason is a fool. He that will not is a bigot. He that dare not is a slave.”
*
“You cannot push anyone up a ladder unless he is willing to climb a little.”
*
“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”
*
“A man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.”

 “Perhaps the most tragic thing about mankind is that we are all dreaming about some magical garden over the horizon, instead of enjoying the roses that are right outside today.”

A joke?!

My wife told me today that my recent posts are too serious.
So I had to reblog a joke.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

I got an email from Chicago with Russian jokes in it.

During our morning’s walk I told my wife one of them and she liked it.

Then I asked Google Translate to help me and edited the translation.

Here is what we got:

“Adam and Eve frolicking in the garden. God descends to them and says: “My children, I have two gifts for you. You’ll have to decide which one to whom. The first gift is peeing standing up “…

Adam begs to let him have the first gift. He says that it is his lifelong dream. Eve yields to him. And Adam runs through the garden, rejoicing, jumping, screaming, and peeing on trees, flowers, insects and simply on the ground.

Then Eve asks: “Lord, what is your second gift?”

God answers: “Brains, Eve. Brains.”

Okay, I've done that stupid trick of sticking my paw up in the air. Now where's that tasty treat you promised me? Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons

PS. I hope that translation is good enough to express the idea.

Edgar Cayce – The Sleeping Prophet.

On March 30, 2014 I posted THREE SIMPLE QUESTIONS.

One of them was: “Who was Edgar Cayce and where did he live?”

Only my friend Painting Pandit gave a brief answer.

Edgar Cayce is not a legend. What he did confirmed for years by a group of people.

Please read about him HERE.

You can get even better knowledge of his life and enjoy very much reading books about him.

Here are Edgar Cayce’s SEVEN PROPHECIES THAT CAME TRUE.

You might be interested in his prophecies that are still to come and in many his readings.

In conclusion, I want to introduce to you several Edgar Cayce’s quotes:

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.”

“It is thought and feeling which guides the universe, not deeds.”

“When ye are prepared for a thing, the opportunity to use it presents itself.”

“You can never lose anything that really belongs to you, and you can’t keep that which belongs to someone else.”
