"Not only must we be good but we must be good for something."-Henry David Thoreau
What does great fudge, the world’s longest porch, U.S. presidents and Hollywood have in common? Mackinac Island.
World Footprints will take you on a journey to a little known crown jewel that sits in Lake Huron between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas –Mackinac Island (pronounced “Mack –in-aw”). The island was named by Native Americans who said that the island resembled a turtle. They gave it the name "Mitchimakinak" meaning "big turtle". The British later shortened the name to Mackinac.
Today’s show explores the island’s rich history and how that is being preserved as a National Historic Landmark. Mackinac Island was key in two battles during the War of 1812 but in the late 19th century, it became a popular summer colony. The island still maintains its old world charm and is known for its variety of architectural styles, including the famous Victorian-style Grand Hotel; fudge; and its ban on almost all motor vehicles. (Golf carts are allowed but only on the golf course.)
Hollywood discovered the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island and it was the setting of two feature films: This Time for Keeps (1946) and Somewhere in Time (1979). Mackinac Island has been written about and visited by many influential writers including Mark Twain and Henry David Thoreau.
As we'lll hear, U.S. Presidents and politicians have enjoyed respites on Mackinac Island. The Grand Hotel has honored these visits by designing some staterooms with the assistance of a few former First Ladies.&nb
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. ~Henry David Thoreau
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. ~ Viktor E. Frankl
What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past. ~ Sai Baba
Life, as we experience it, unfolds from within us -- individually and collectively. Our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, preoccupations, and imaginings REALLY DO MATTER -- like for real, no kidding. And what we feel is real IS real because our thoughts about it were fired up by feelings and cast into form. ~ Maisha
Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index”, our conversation continue to focus on “Love: A Path to Happiness”. The dance between Love and Happiness is telling. They are like Romeo and Juliette. It is impossible for one to experience love without being happy. “Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” ~Said, Robert A. Heinlein. I cannot sleep when I am with you; and I cannot sleep when you leave me my love. According to the doctrine of Attitudinal Healing, “The essence of our being is Love.” This is rooted in the wisdom that God is love. Is love keeping you up all night? It happens to all of us. “There is no remedy for love but to love more.” ~ David Henry Thoreau. The secret is, to be happy; one must be bold to share one’s love. Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio. Join me in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.
Happy Easter!!! Today we are reading Romans Chapter 13.
Paul's spree of advice continues. Everyone should obey people in positions of authority. After all, all authority comes from God, so all the authority figures running around out there must have been hand-picked by God. Makes sense… sort of. That means if you go against someone in a position of authority, then you're really going against God. Remember that next time you throw paper airplanes at your Spanish teacher. Basically, Paul says, if you just keep walking the straight and narrow and don't step out of line you should be fine. If you do, those authority figures have swords and they're not afraid to wield them. (Ironic historical footnote: about 10 years after writing this, Paul was executed by the Roman authorities. Wonder if that might make him revise his thoughts in this section just a little?) Same thing goes for paying taxes. Sorry, Tea Party and Henry David Thoreau—you've got to pay them. If you owe money to the government, fork it over. And if you owe respect and honor to people in positions of power, then start practicing your groveling now. Don't walk around owing anyone anything. Period. Oh, except love. You should owe everyone love all the time. And pay it as often as possible. That's the essence of all of Jewish law anyway, love. Paul thinks the Ten Commandments can pretty much be boiled down to "Love your neighbor as yourself." It's really pretty simple, guys. The hour is at hand. Salvation is coming soon to a theater near you. Any minute now, Jesus is gonna come down from Heaven again and make some non-believers feel pretty darn foolish. Yup. He's talking about the second coming, folks. So let's all just be good little boys and girls so we can always be prepared for this. Basically just keep focused on Christ and do what's good all the time. Easy, right? Thanks to shmoop.com

Inspiration of the Day
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
- Henry David Thoreau
American author, poet, naturalist and philosopher who’s best known book is Walden.
So Now What?
I may be going out on a limb here but I’m guessing that the reason you might be wishing to be like someone else is because you don’t like the way you are. Dare I say, you don’t love yourself?
Ok, that wasn’t that hard to figure out. But if there are aspects of yourself, of your personality, of your character, of your being that disappoint you, that anger you, that frustrate you then you are going to have to do something about it.
This is where the hammer and forge come in.
What is it about yourself that frustrates you? Now are you going to do something about it or just stay frustrated?
What area do you need to work on, health, relationships, communication, getting rid of negative thoughts, general crappy outlook on life?

Today, Raj Chehl and Dr. Pearlette Ramos will launch their new blogtalkradio show, Living Life Powerfully, a program dedicated to inspiring and supporting you to explore your purpose, ignite your passion, and live your life with power! Thoreau once said, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation…and go to the grave with their song still in them." We each have an inner song that is longing to be sung. Join us for a lively discussion of how you can turn ordinary experiences into extraordinary opportunities to sing your heart out! We're going to check in on the goals you have created for 2015 and offer some strategies for how you can stay (or get back) on track and make your dreams come true this year!
"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation." So said Henry David Thoreau. However, he had a dream that one day Americans will rise up to live out the words that all men are created equal. I am speaking, of course about the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Some 50 years later, we must ask ourselves if we have lived up to that dream!!! Some will say that with the election of the first African-American President, twice, that we as a people have "made it" to the "promised land." Others, after the events of the past six months, will say that we still have a way to go. It is a matter of opinion; we at the Coffee Club are asking, "What is your opinion???" Thoreau would like to know, "What is your dream???" You may call us at 646-595-3275.
Reverend Jon Saint Germain is the Voice of the Crystal Silence League, providing Spiritual guidance on the practical use of crystals and crystal balls in the development of mental concentration and mind power, silent influence over others, divination and scrying of the future, and telepathic contact with people and spirits.
According to Thoreau, the majority of people live in "Quiet desperation," surviving from day to day, unfulfilled, some not even daring to dream of a better life. And yet everything we so desperately desire are out there waiting for us. All we have to do is ask for them. But we have to know how to ask.
This episode focuses on crystalizing your desires and manifesting them into daily experience through healing yourself of self-doubt and habitual patterns created by past failures and neagative mental thought patterns.
Listerners are encouraged to call into the show with questions and comments. Mr. Saint Germain will also be giving free readings during the show!
