ALL IS ONE -Yet We Are Not Alone: By Michael Bowes

One can be certain that one is not alone in this world. As long as we consider ourselves to be a separate, limited, mortal individual in this sometimes bewildering existence, one can be certain that the presence and guidance of the true guru, the eternal guide, is always with us. That loving guide draws us to ItSelf just as the flowers attract the bees.

Have you noticed how persons use expressions similar to the following – “I said to myself”, “I thought to myself”, “I told myself”, “I asked myself”?
Who is the “I” that asks one’s self, who is the “I” that thinks to one’s self, who is the “I” that tells one’s self? And who is the “myself” that “I” tells?
These expressions and questions are subtle indications of the fractured nature of our existence; but they are also indications of the one who is…

Samsung Introduces Ultra Fast 60Ghz Wi-Fi Technology

Samsung announced today that it has developed the fastest Wi-Fi technology on the planet, five times faster than what currently exists today.

According to the Samsung announcement, the new 60 GHz Wi-fi technology will be integrated into its products by early next year.

“The 60 GHz Wi-Fi technology will enable a 1 gigabyte movie to be transferred between devices in less than three seconds while allowing uncompressed high-definition videos to be streamed in real time, the Suwon, South Korea-based company said in an e-mailed statement today. The technology removes the gap between theoretical and actual speeds, and exhibits actual speeds more than 10 times faster than with existing Wi-Fi technologies, it said.”

“Samsung has successfully overcome the barriers to the commercialization” of the 60 GHz Wi-Fi technology, Kim Chang Yong, head of a Samsung research-and-development center, said in the statement. “New and innovative changes await Samsung’s next-generation devices, while new possibilities have been opened up for the future development of Wi-Fi technology.”

Industry experts are of the view that this ultra fast Wi-Fi Technology is likely to be under the 802.11ad wireless protocol.

My comments: In my view, this ultra fast Wi-Fi technology will first be incorporated in Samsung smartphones and tablets, where Samsung is facing intense competition due to Apple introducing the large screen iPhones. It will be interesting to see the response from Apple, Microsoft, and Google in the coming week. Due to the ease of streaming this technology will allow, Netflix and others will be looking at the implications of  802.11ad wireless protocol for their business model.

When I was very young, my meditations made me soar so high that I was afraid of falling and felt anxious. In those moments the most gentle and angelic female presence firmly held me from behind and guided my flights over celestial regions like a mother showing a child how to ride a bicycle. It happened often.

This angel was always behind me at my back holding my shoulders in the most reassuring manner. Gliding over the heavenly realms of light with this divine companion was pure joy.  But I could never see her face and wondered who she was.

Who was this motherly angel who manifested in my meditations to protect me from fears? Who was this being that embraced me with such tenderness and silently guided and navigated the path?

This went on for many years. She was my guardian angel. Where she came from, I don’t know.
