- Oct. 20, 1977:
A plane crash ended the original #LynyrdSkynyrd band with the passing of singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, back-up singer Cassie Gaines and road manager Dean Kilpatrick.
[media links are after these book quotes]
Artimus Pyle: “Right before the wreck, the plane was completely quiet. I feel that everyone there at that moment was speaking to their concept of God.”
Billy Powell: “After the engines stopped, only the whooshing noises of gliding through the air during our descent could be heard. Then it sounded like hundreds of people with baseball bats hitting the outside of the plane as we skimmed along the tops of the trees. Suddenly I saw the planes wings being ripped off of its sides.”
Gene Odom: “Everyone was wearing their seat belts before we crashed, yet every seat but one was ripped from the floor. Almost everyone and everything was hurled forward into a pile of broken bodies that smothered those on the bottom.”
Artimus Pyle: “The plane was completely torn apart when we hit the ground. I got out of the plane and started walking in a daze. I can’t describe how terrifying it was. Among the dead and dying, the conscious survivors were moaning and screaming for help. I saw the copilot hanging in a tree, decapitated. The pilots paid dearly for their mistake.”
Thieves arrived before the rescuers did and stole thousands of dollars in cash, jewelry and anything else that was valuable from the crash site – even off of the deceased and those who were too injured to stop them from being robbed.
Billy Powell: “Afterward when I learned that Ronnie had died… I felt relieved, to be honest – because thank God, it meant that the beatings would now finally stop. He was a hard man - a street fighter. Everyone was scared of him and no one dared to argue with Ronnie because they knew they’d get hurt.”

The question is not about what you like. The question is about does everything around you like you, have you made yourself in such a way that nobody can help liking you? You like something, you dislike something, it doesn’t mean anything, because both what you like and what you dislike are two different kinds of bondages. Both what you like and what you dislike distorts (distort?) your perception. If you like somebody, you’ll exaggerate them in your mind. If you dislike somebody, for sure you’ll exaggerate them in your mind. Exaggeration means you’re unable to see things as they are. If you’re unable to see things as they are, you can never handle life the way it should be. So liking and disliking exaggerates either in positive ways or in negative ways, but it exaggerates or it distorts life. So what you like is not important. Have you made yourself in such a way, not just people, just everything likes you, every creature around you likes your presence, even the flowers, the plants and the trees like you?
‘How can the plants and the trees like me?’ They’re very sensitive to who you are. They’re extremely sensitive to who you are. They respond accordingly. If you make yourself in such a way that the very earth that you walk upon likes you, then you will see everything in your life will become a blessing. If everything around you dislikes you, you will see everything that could be a well-being could become a curse. Right now there is no curse sitting upon human life. It is things that people want, it’s things that people aspire for, things that they work for, strive to have in their life, which turns (turn?) into curses in their life - their work, their property, their relationships, their own body, their own mind which is the cancer of their life. Misery is not raining. Never it’s raining misery. It’s just that things that you like have become source of misery.
If you strive to make yourself in such a way you cannot be helped… nobody can help liking you, life will blossom better, everything will yield their best to you, not their worst. But if you go by what you like, not always life will yield its best; you may have everything and still have nothing.
So spiritual process is not about pursuing what you like, it’s about striving to make yourself in such a way even the birds like you, the squirrels like youit’s about making yourself in such a way that every atom in this Existence likes you, wants to yield to you. If Existence does not yield to you, you do what you want, nothing will work in real sense. You may do something, you may become something, you may earn a living, you may make a living, but nothing will happen. You will just go through a cycle without nothing tremendous touching your life.
For those of you who’re living in the ashram, I want you to learn to stand, walk, sit, breathe, in such a way that even the stones around you like you. ‘How do I know whether they like me or not?’ You will know for sure. If you are sensitive about being like that, you will also know you will also be sensitive enough to know that. You… If you are never sensitive about these aspects, you will not have the sensitivity to know, otherwise distinctly you will know.
Do not become in such a way everything has to be shouted into your ears. You must become in such a way if you look at somebody before they speak, you know. For this, you need a certain sense of receptivity. Receptivity will not happen to you if you’re too full of yourself. The less you are the more you receive, the more you are less you receive. If you’re too full of yourself, nothing bigger than your nonsense will happen to you. If there’s no such thing as ‘myself’, you simply sit here, the whole existence will dance within you, you will become an instrument of the Creator, otherwise you will be a bundle of thoughts, emotions, prejudices and rubbish.
This is the choice every human being has - either to exist here as a limb of the Creator, as a Ishanga we’re calling them these days (Laughs), or to exist here as a bundle of thoughts, emotions and nonsense that you have gathered. This choice is available to us every moment of our life continuously choosing, continuously choosing to be like that. If this striving is there it will deliver you to a different place of gracefulness, where every stone, every pebble, every rock, every tree, every atom in the existence speaks to you in a language that you can know, otherwise you are alone in this vast existence feeling constantly insecure, unstable, psychologically challenged. This is the choice. It is not a gift, it is a choice. One makes the right choice, right things will happen; one makes the wrong choice, wrong things will happen. It’s a very fair and just existence, I want you to know. It doesn’t spare anybody. It doesn’t spare anybody. It’s not like a social structure that some people can get away with wrong things. In this existence it doesn’t spare anybody. It doesn’t matter who you are, if you jump off the roof, the earth will break your leg. Yes? Raja Ranka Fakir (Laughs) (Referring to Kabir’s song, indicating all kinds of people) everybody - nobody is spared. (It?) doesn’t matter who you are, no exemptions, and nobody is barred. anybody who is willing, for everybody the possibility is open. For everybody the stick is also there. You make the right choices everything is open; make the wrong choices everything will knead you in a different way.
So if pain comes, suffering comes, misery happens it’s not time to look around. This is always the problem. If you’re miserable, you think somebody else need (needs?) to be fixed. No, no, no, no. If you’re miserable, this (Referring to oneself) needs to be fixed, not somebody else. ‘No I’m miserable, fix the situation for me’. No, no, no, if you’re miserable, who should be fixed? If you are sick, who should be given the medicine? Shall we give it to somebody else when you’re sick? If you’re hungry, shall we give the food to somebody else? No, it only works if you give it to this (Referring to oneself), isn’t it? If food is like that, medicine is like that, is that not true with every other aspect? That if you’re miserable, something else or somebody else need not be fixed, only this one (Referring to oneself) needs to be fixed. Just to understand this simple fact, people take lifetimes. (Laughs) They think something else has to be fixed.
On a certain day, Shankaran Pillai went drinking with his friends. Yogis and drunkards both are timeless, you know. They don’t know the passage of time. He went drinking. He intended to go back home at 8’o clock, but drink after drink and time… he became unconscious of time. When he looked at the watch (Gestures) (Laughter), it was 02:30 AM. So he thought it’s really late, and he wants to get back home quickly so he took a short cut. And he was walking through his shortcut on his unsteady legs and he fell into a thorny bush. The whole face was scratched up. So in this condition he went home and tried to find the keyhole. That took another half-an-hour. (Laughter) Opened, went inside, went into the bathroom and looked at himself in the mirror, he was bleeding all over the face. So he opened the medicine chest fixed himself whichever way he could and quietly crawled into the bed and slept. Morning 8’o clock, his wife took a bucket of cold water and threw it in his face; he got up. Said, ‘You idiot, once again drinking?’ He said, ‘No honey, I haven’t touched a drop. Six months ago when I promised, since then I haven’t touched a drop.’ She held him by the shirt, dragged him into the bathroom and showed him, the band-aid was all over the mirror. (Laughter/Applause)
It doesn’t work like that. Only somebody who is completely unconscious will do such things. If it’s hurting here you’ll fix it there (Gestures), because you’re completely unconscious or inebriated. So whenever you’re miserable you want to fix that one and that one and that one; no, no, no; this one (Referring to oneself) needs to be fixed. If you put band-aid on the mirror it doesn’t heal your wounds. You have to attend to the wound. And both your miseries and joys are caused from inside. So it needs to be attended here, not somewhere else. The sooner you learn this, the more graceful and wonderful your life will become.0 0 0 0
- This one has got me baffled. Last week while walking along the seashore and taking some random shots of the storm clouds brewing on the horizon I manged to catch something usual/interesting. It wouldn't come to my attention until I upload the images onto my computer and began looking more closely at them. The first shot is of the beach in the foreground and San Juan Islands in the distance. The second was taken a couple seconds later with little or no movement of the camera (the first shows a bald eagle flight and the second shows him/her just landed). When I looked at the second closely I noticed something I could not explain. At first I thought a tight flock birds or a boat perhaps. But flocks of birds don't look 'solid' like that and boats don't suspend themselves in the air. The third image is a close crop with contrast added. The first two are unaltered. Your guess is as good as mine.0 0 0 0
- Densely serious. Incorporate an abundant more of raw foods into your diet, making doubly sure that most or all of what you choose is Organic (or home grown n of your own, family, or friend, is best of course), and NON-GMO!!!!! Cannot stress any of this enough.
Love yourself. Love your body, coherently mindfully and heartfully honor your whole being. Respect your whole of being. Nourish and support your mind/heart-soul, body, spirit health and full well being.
Follow and be your truth.Do what is right by living your truth, dong what has passion and full blown feeling and drive within for you.
And EAT RIGHT. EAT INTELLIGENTLY WELL. More WHOLE FOOD, Non chemically altered or filled, non overtly processed, explore in creating things yourself. LEARN SOMETHING, and who knows, maybe you'd even find that this is something that really aligns with you and can become a positive constructive and creative outlet of love.
In eating well, also consciously, spiritually "eat well", not just food, which will help to support these also. Be conscious of what you feed your mind, feed your heart, feed your soul. What you watch, listen to, read, are around, DO. And of what and how exactly, in what way you are thinking of something. Is it good, nourishing, inspirational or kind at all to yourself, and others if ever you share these thoughts, feelings, imagining with others?
Get out into nature as seriously often as possible Even just walking outside your day, hopefully you cna be near trees, birds, squirrels, insects, any and everyone. At night or early morning to connect to the stars and quite planet, Humanly speaking. Connect to the sun, the air, the Earth during the day. If you are close enough try walking places more often, no matter the season and not as dependent on the weather! Get out and feeeelll your world! Nourish your spirit and heart!! Breeeaaaatthheee :3.
Eat right. Think right. Do right. Be well and follow your dearest truth, sharing that with others by simply being in that space of energies as much as possible!!0 0 0 0
- Release at my PR laboratory
I wanted to tell you more about my new job and make an interesting offer to all those who write about cryptocurrency and social networks, but then I remembered that every third day is a day of reviews on Levelnaut.com
Therefore, now you will also get very interesting information about the crypto social network of steemit-like type, which is called Release.
While most crypto networkers are waiting for the English version of Alis, another Japanese project has entered the market, which, as I said, is called Release.
Despite the fact that the ICO of token REL will end only at the beginning of the next year, this is already a perfectly functioning crypto social network. By the way, the REL token is already being traded on the Latoken exchange. There are 5 languages supported on the Release website today, including English.
At the moment, the English-speaking segment of the project is not yet very populated, therefore, in my opinion, this is the best time to join this crypto social network.
I have already included this project in the main list of crypto social networks on the well-known page https://levelnaut.com/2017/12/19/cryptocurrency-social-networks-list/ and you can proceed to registration right now.
There is no referral program like in almost all steemit-like projects, but the system of rewarding users for their activity and curatorship system are already working perfectly. All bloggers get points, and besides, there is an interesting module on the website called the Ranking.
I am sure that you will like this project, at least I feel very comfortable there and the atmosphere at Release is very friendly and pleasant. As everywhere, my login in this network is borishaifa and you will find me there without any problems.
Do you remember what I wrote about the "early birds", dear readers? Perfectly. Then don’t waste your time and start exploring this crypto social network, and you will get interesting news and an attractive offer from me personally, as I promised, tomorrow.

- Early birds win
Yes, the title of this article is devoted to those users about whom the famous proverb speaks. What in our case, that is, in the crypto world, does the "early bird" metaphor mean? This term may be called differently. You have probably met such definitions as "early adopter", "alpha tester", etc.
Or maybe you even received an invitation to a crypto social network before its official launch. I hope you took advantage of this invitation, as this is a very profitable and useful business.
Many projects offer to subscribe to news long before the alpha version is ready. I always subscribe for several reasons and two of them are the most important. First, I want to be aware of how the project is developing and how its roadmap is being implemented.
And secondly, very often the developers invite volunteers for the test in order to try out the functionality in work, report bugs, etc. It is not always in this case that coins earned during the alpha period remain on your balance sheet. But most often, if there is such an opportunity, the developers keep the balance sheets in the beta version.
But it's not that only. While testing the alpha version you get a huge advantage over the majority of users. By the time the main group joins the project, you will already know how everything is arranged and you can earn more and faster.
Many websites from the list of potential projects on the Levelnaut.com website https://levelnaut.com/2018/03/03/list-of-potential-crypto-networks/ are now in alpha version. Therefore, I recommend using my hint and controlling the early offer of crypto networks.
I hope that this information will be useful for you and quite possibly you will also tell me about the crypto social networks that are in alpha. By the way, just yesterday I joined the new project at the personal invitation of the developers. But I will tell about it tomorrow, in the new review.
