Medicinal Cannabis Growing

"Using medical cannabis products 
recommended by a physician 
should not be regarded as 
a 'chet,' a sinful act, but rather 
as a mitzvah, an imperative, 
a commandment."
Rabbi Menachem Genack, 
Orthodox Union CEO

Closure is when 
raw memory blurs to 
become the folklore of life.
        Stewart Stafford

Your heart knows 
the truth of openness
 and suffers the tense 
lie of your closure.
David Deida

There's never any closure 
in an awe-inspired life,
 only constant acceptance 
of the mysteries of life.     
                                Paul Pearsall

Everyone is looking for closure,
but I don't want to be closed down.

The story never ends.
Because every "ending"
begins a new story.

We want to understand, but 
get caught up in the details.
Understanding is a 
much bigger thing.

We cannot learn what 
we think we know.
I don't want to stop. 
I want to see further.
I want to GO!


Thank YOU

Best Too Short

"Don't get so busy
making a living
that you forget to
make a life,"
Dolly Parton

"People generally see
what they look for, and
hear what they listen for"
Harper Lee

“I believe that if you don't 
derive a deep sense of purpose 
from what you do, if you don't come 
radiantly alive several times a day, 
if you don't feel deeply grateful at 
the tremendous good fortune that 
has been bestowed on you, then 
you are wasting your life. 
And life is too short to waste.”

True Nature of Things

"For in the true nature of things, if 
we rightly consider, every green tree 
is far more glorious than if it were

how great a part of all 
that is cheerful and delightful 
in the recollections of our own 
life is associated with trees."

"Repetition doesn’t really exist. 
As far as your mind is concerned, 
nothing happens the same twice, 
even if in every technical sense, 
the thing is identical. 
Your perception is 
constantly shifting. It 
doesn’t stay in one place."
