Amateurs Break Barriers with Drones

posted by Cheryl Petersen

In the June 2011 Smithsonian Magazine there is an article titled, Ready for Takeoff, by Richard Conniff, discussing how aerial drones are being used for peacetime work. Drone (unmanned) aircraft has been restricted to war zones until recently when the likes of engineer Tad McGeer, from Bingen, Washington, began asserting the fact that drones can assist in everyday civilian efforts. Consequently, a drone was employed to evaluate disaster damage at a nuclear power plant in Japan, April, 2011, after the tsunami.

The crux of this story is the fact that ideas are not confined to an exclusive organization or limited in their usefulness.  You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, or a spiritual guru, or a church leader, to manifest an idea useful to humanity.

When the heart is ready, and sometimes even before, useful ideas come to us and we can be assured that the power to manifest those ideas is one with the idea. Through the framework of an all-loving, intelligent God, as the source of all real ideas, it can be seen that everyone is entitled to spiritual ideas; a fact that eliminates the belief that some human beings are superior to others and have a corner on spiritual power.

Don’t be reluctant to test spirituality and its positive influence on human life. “Aren’t we all amateurs?” Tad McGeer asked the Smithsonian reporter.

Trust the spiritual idea that, “The human mind, inspired with spiritual understanding, becomes more resilient and is capable of increased stamina.” (21st Century Science and Health)

A buzz in my ear from life
The woods around us are teeming with black flies. During the muggy summer days those flies are doing what? Flying. This morning on my walk the flies were so thick I thought I might breathe one in. I felt annoyance build up as I tried to swat them away. Then I looked beyond the buzzing in my face
