Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Staring at a blank page is like staring into a snowfield. The snow, untouched by civilization and unmarked by living creatures, blinds you for a few minutes, it glistens reflecting subtle shades of pure white and rainbows at odd angles. If you stare at the snow too long, you get lost in the interplay of light and shadow.

As the day wears on, you become awestruck at the beauty of the snow's perfection. You marvel at the way an oak tree cast its ebony shadow across the pure white snow. You watch the tree's shadow change, grow and shrink, as Earth turns and the sun moves from morning to evening. If you stand out in the snow too long without moving, you risk snow bite or freezing.

If you are fortunate, a red fox will walk across your line of sight. The fox will leave his footprints written in the snowfield. As you watch the fox move, the spell holding you in one spot staring at the snow is broken. You are free to go inside out of the cold and out of danger.

I must say,
writing 500 words a day
isn't difficult,
unless I'm attempting to write
on a single subject.

On Monday, October 28, 2013, I began posting my weekly goals at "Weekly Goals. On Tuesday, October 29, 2013 I began keeping track of may accomplished goals in this journal.

"O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning;
for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds."

Robert A. Heinlein

It is enjoined upon every one of you to engage in some form of occupation, such as crafts, trades and the like. We have graciously exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship unto God, the True One. Ponder ye in your hearts the grace and the blessings of God and render thanks unto Him at eventide and at dawn. Waste not your time in idleness and sloth. Occupy yourselves with that which profiteth yourselves and others. Thus hath it been decreed in this Tablet from whose horizon the day-star of wisdom and utterance shineth resplendent.
Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah Revealed After the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Pages 21-29: gr 32

                   *BulletV* ...that I discovered the following quote posted on Facebook from one of the groups I'm a member of.

"The Messengers who are alluded to in the Baha'i authoritative texts as being 'Manifestations' are Adam, Noah, Hud, Salih, Krishna, Moses, Abraham, Zoroaster, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, the Bab, and Baha'u'llah. This list is not intended to be a definitive or complete list of the Manifestations. The Baha'i Writings observe that entire cycles of Manifestations are lost to the collective memory of man, and all evidence of Their Dispensations has been entirely eradicated. However, in the Baha'i texts are cogent discussions about the distinctions between Manifestations and the 'minor prophets.'
" 'Abdu'l-Baha notes that the independent Manifestations of universal prophethood are like the sun, while lesser prophets are like the moons reflecting the power of the Manifestation. Thus Moses was a Manifestation of God while his brother Aaron was a minor prophet. Stated another way, where Moses spoke on behalf of God [a revelation direct from God], Aaron spoke on behalf of Moses."
