These arches led the way …..
Thurs Door ( and at end: 2 Doors),

… to an inner court. Very secluded and quiet.
where splashing water of these fountains
provided refreshment.
Not lonely, but on this side of the
ocean protected from the wars
of the outside world  and
treaties to form countries


The wind started stirring. Showing the heart of this mysterious magnolia

The wind died down later, and the sun resumed
shining, putting a shadow
on part of the door on Pumpkin Street in Southern California.

My thoughts were still reflecting on the inner court,
with the skylight, the ceiling fan and windows
in my living room
seen on a bottle of wine

Am glad Makro-Tex asked for “a book.” The reading goes slow, but already
for some timeI wanted to know more about
the “New Age” which is made up of several
religions  (Hinduism, Bhuddism), and philosophical views
(pantheism, witchcraft, crystal) and
the result of that in daily life.
Makro-Tex: book, ABC Wed: Pursue


List of Beliefs, page 2.

Innocent and popular: Yoga. Several bloggers
are practicing it. Don’t mean to judge you,
merely showing it is not innocent,
for it is in the company of sorcery, witchcraft,
channeling. These are not  just physical exercises,
but sun positions to invoke the worship
the Hindu idols. Can’t double dip.
Christianity and yoga do not mix!
When you inadvertently have come
on the territory of the devil, you will
see that after some tine you will become confused,
depressed and without peace,
even if you are a church goer.
One of the authors is a 21 (?) year old, having thousands of followers of Facebook,
Steven Bancarz, exercising his New Age,
making mega $$, until God asked him
why he was resisting Him.
He sold his house, his car, and moved back
in with his parents. This guru issued an apology
on Facebook to his thousands of
followers!! He was that courageous!
No water by the wine! Hope you will do the same!

  1. The inner court is lovely. It reminds me of a courtyard of the Catholic church that was on our way home from school. We would stop by once in a while to get a some water from their drinking fountain. They didn’t seem to mind a few unruly kids stopping by. – Margy


  2. I love that shot of the series of arches; such beautiful, quiet, peaceful feel to it, it must be from the glowing light coming through the openings. Nicely done 🙂


    1. Thank you Norm. It was intended as a peaceful post, until I read Makro-Tex’s subject for Tue. But it’s important for me to tell the truth, and not to be politically correct.

  3. A very peaceful post until that last book. I haven’t heard of the book but certainly have heard of the “religions” in it. What a courageous man Steven was, but when the Lord gets hold of you, watch out. Paul could tell a tale or two about that, couldn’t he. And C.S. Lewis had no intention of becoming a Christian, yet he became one of its best apologists. 🙂

    1. It was intended as a peaceful post, until I read Makro-Tex’s reguirement for Tue., lol! I thought, here it goes, I know I’ll have to write about this, at some point! Also, I knew that many would shrink back of saying anything about it, which is a very sad sign. Look at all the “likes” I have, but not one word. Up till now, you’re the only one! His apology on Facebook I read long before I read his book, and it also reminded me of Paul.

  4. I love the arches too! We don’t have that style in Finland, but have seen many in Spain and recently in Florence.


    1. Thank you Riitta, this is located very close to Mexico, so many of the building styles of buildings (and even colors – terra cotta is much seen here) are influenced by the Mexican and Spanish ones.:)


    1. Thank you Deborah, I like these colors too – very much so (Southern Calif!). It’s Wed. almost 11:30 at night, but on the time of your comment, “it” says 6 am on the 17th – how odd, right?
