The Dog Days of Summer
Woof! Woof! Oh, boy it's hot!
Why are the dog days of summer
called the dog days of summer? Because
no living being can appreciate relaxing
like a dog. Given a relatively flat surface -
the floor of a porch warmed by the sun,
for example - a dog knows instinctively
what to do: he collapses. No vanity there,
either: he's on his back, his mouth open,
his tongue hanging out. Dogs truly
appreciate a summer day for what it is -
a Mother Nature-imposed break. Yes,
it is too hot to move. So sit, boy, sit!
SECTION TWO - The High Cost Of Higher Education
The High Cost Of Higher Education
The end of August brings many families to
the realities of their children going off to college.
The value of a good education can never be
under-estimated - neither should the cost of an
education be under-estimated. There are three
types of colleges and three types of costs:
1. In-state colleges. These are schools in your
own state that will cost you the least for your
child to attend.
2. Out-of-state state colleges. State universities
not in your own state. These are in the middle-range
3. Private colleges. The most expensive. These
schools will usually give you the most money
in loans and grants.
The more loans you get the longer it will
take you (or your college graduate) to pay
them off. Some families and individuals are
burdened with these loans for a very long time.
Study all the available statistics on the
colleges that you want and can afford.

SECTION FIVE - SOUL MATE
"Even though experience has repeatedly proven that
their attitudes and views with regard to love and
sexuality bring them only failure and disappointment,
the majority of people persist in the belief that
it is not their understanding that is at fault,
but simply the fact they have not yet met their
soul mate. Happiness, they believe, is merely a
question of meeting someone. Unfortunately this is
not how things work, because a soul mate is not a man
or woman one meets, just like that, in the street and
with whom you will fall in love at first sight.
Meeting a soul mate is firstly a psychic process
in other words mental, emotional, and spiritual by
which the higher part of your self attracts its
counterpart. And you need to have been working for
a long time before you can identify the higher
part of your self. Those who make great efforts
to prove themselves worthy of their divine half
will attract it. A bond will establish itself with
their divine half because it lives within them.
If you want to find your soul mate do not start
looking for it outwardly. Instead, work with the
light and your soul mate will come to you, because
it will be attracted by the light it sees glowing
in you. You do not know where your soul mate is?
But it knows where you are. All you need do is
wait for it inwardly. It will come."
