A Morning in Every Moment / Negative Influence of Social Media / Thank You Officer Brandon Gilbert / NASA 2016 Pictures of the Day / Friday: T. B. A.

            Let your Spirit take you.

The greatest Blessings of mankind
are within us.
They are within our reach.

Far, far beneath
the Splendor and the Majesty
of this moment,
we hide our Hearts
in a shadowy existence.
But
there is no darkness
when we choose
to banish the night.

My Dear Friends,
there is a Star
that belongs to you.
You cannot see it
by night.
But wait.
It will unfurl its Splendor
and burst into sight.
And there
will be your delight.

Yes,
there is a morning
in every moment
that brings a Love story
to Life.

   There is a Star that belongs to you.

Gently,
close your tired eyes,
and surrender to the Heart
that truly possesses you.
In the darkness
of your fears
is the Light,
a Light Divine.

Your mind
can never begin the journey
to be free,
until you leave
the vexing years
that knew you.

Let your Spirit take you
where your fears
cannot bind you,
to where your dreams begin:
to where your Heart sings
and you savor the flavor
of every single moment
Love and Life can bring.

                  Peace attend Thee

There is a harmony
only you can write.
It will take you
to where you long to be,
to where the mind
fragrantly forgets,
to where the Heart
takes flight.

And
if you look down
upon your own Creation,
the only explanation
you will have found
is the Love
all around.

And if you look
even deeper,
within your very Human Heart,
you will find YOU
hiding deep inside.

  The future is the past dreaming.

Begin a new journey!
Leave all thoughts of the World
you knew before.
Let your Spirit take you
where you long to be:
in Love with Love
and free.

“Ninety-nine percentfuller
of who you are
is invisible
and
untouchable.”

Buckminster Fuller

Always,
will we be
frozen in time,
until the day we realize,
tis’ the Heart that truly sees,
not the finite
mind.

Love is:
a Peace
that longs to attend Thee,
an acceptance
that this moment
harbors Infinity,
a knowing
God will send Thee
visions of His Light,
to pierce that darkest dark
of every night.

wait-for-me

              Begin a new journey!

So sleep My Friend
and Peace attend Thee
and Pray to God
to send Thee
His ever present Light,
so that you may truly see
through the lens of Love
there is no
night,
no unfeeling cold,
no darkness to stir and wake
the imagination to fright,
to silently abandon your defenses
and heighten sensations
that steal from you
every day and night.

You can Live
as you’ve never Lived before,
and Love everyone
and every Living thing
in sight.

spectrum

Love is
the most Beautiful thing
we can experience.
Bring your Love Story
to Life,
and be unafraid
to brave the Dawn.

The Human Heart
has its own gravity,
and the center of gravity
is the Heart’s desire.

The future
is the past
dreaming.
Let the Dream
begin.

Goodnight.

freedom

Be unafraid to brave the Dawn.

“You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep,
‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave tear drops everywhere.

youngYou’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
 awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause
everything is never
as it seems
.”

Adam Young

      This moment harbors Infinity.

Social media
is great for sharing personal experiences,
but it has a strong negative influence
on our lives,
as it prevents us
from actually experiencing life!

The lack of face to face communication
puts a toll on our lives,
making it harder for us
to really communicate
with other people.

When you gather with friends
there are good times,
which are not going to come back.

Encourage
your children to leave
the phone at home.
Give them a chance
to truly live
Life.

“Success consists of goingwinston
from failure to failure
without loosing
enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill

Arlington Police Officer

buys struggling mom new car seats

From Fox4 News.com comes another beautiful story of Love and Compassion. An Arlington mother got more than she expected after she was pulled over. Instead of writing the woman a ticket for broken car seats, the officer bought new ones.

Alexis Jones says she knew her car seats were in really bad shape and was waiting until black Friday to go out and get new ones. But the Arlington police officer got to her first.

Jones was with her 3-year-old daughter and her 9-month-old son, and Arlington Police Officer Brandon Gilbert was ready to write her a ticket.

“The car seat was broken. It was a very old car seat,” the officer said. “And there really wasn’t any way of restraining the child that was inside the car seat because it was broken.”

Jones already was trying to manage a new job and a new apartment. The dash cam shows the officer putting the car seat on the hood of the patrol car and helping her with it.

“I thought about taking enforcement action,” Gilbert admitted. “But then I thought that’s not gonna help her.”

But it wasn’t until he got home that Officer Gilbert decided he needed to respond – not as an officer, but as a fellow parent.

Officer Gilbert brought two big boxes of car seats and stuffed animals,” Jones said. “And I was just in total shock. It was just it was amazing, actually.”

Gilbert used his own money to buy two car seats. He brought them over to her house and showed her how to install them.

“Lord willing I don’t, but if I was to get in a car accident, they would be safe,” Jones said. “I just feel so much better every time I drive my car.”

It was an act of Love and Kindness that Jones says made all the difference in the world.

Thank you officer Brandon Gilbert.
We Love you too.

“If I could be a little girl again
This is how I wish it would have been.
I’d watch slowly the flowers grow,
I’d watch slowly the rivers flow,
If I could be a little girl again.

If I could be a little girl again
This is how I wish it would have been.
I’d watch the sunrise every day,
and see the sunset come what may.
If I could be a little girl again.

If I could be a little girl again
This is how I wish it would have been.
I’d kiss the birds, and love the bees
And make sure that I climbed every tree.
If I could be a little girl again.

If I could be a little girl again
I’d never miss a beat of life
Until the Lord says your mine tonight,
Then with eyes glowing alive and bright
I’d be that little girl again.”
– Gail C. Berreitter

Savor the flavor of every single moment.

“Nothing comes from violence
and nothing ever could.
For all those born
beneath an angry star

Lest we forget
how fragile we are.

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star,
like tears from a star

On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are,
how fragile we are.”

– Sting

“Learn from those who can teach you.
The experiences of those who preceded us
in our ‘dead poets’,
help you walk through life.
Today’s society is us ‘poets alive’.
Do not let life pass you live without that.”
– Edu Fau

Love is Just a Dream / Vitamins to Protect Against Cancer / Thursday and Friday: No School (Texas A.G.T. Conference)

pink-and-red-flowers

Life lived simply, is simply Beautiful.

Love is just a Dream
by another name.
What the Heart feigns
to be something other,
remains the same.

Narrow streets
have we wandered down,
seldom looking up
to see the Pure Light
of Love,
the Light
of God’s Love
glowing in the dark.
And in our memory,
His Love,
is streaming from
Heaven Above.

God gives sight to those
blinded by the night
of never knowing
they are so deeply
Loved.
All we need do
is ask.

“And all things,
whatsoever you shall
ask in Prayer,

believing,
you shall receive.”
Matthew 21:22

slit-moon

       See the Pure Light of Love.

God
is the Hope
of the hopeless.
He alone provides direction
to those so lost
in the twisted canyons of the
mind,
swallowed up in doubt,
buried deep in
depression.

If Life
has fastened your Heart
to a stone,
there is news
My Friend,
in which
you can take delight.

“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know Life
at all.”

Joni Mitchell

My Dear Friends,
the simple things
in Life
will unfetter you,
set your weary mind and heavy Heart
free.

tree-and-birds

The simple things in Life are the most extraordinary.

Wisdom
is in the wind,
whistling through the
trees,
faint and simple sounds
birthed in memories:
a long stroll in the park
walking hand in hand
with someone you deeply Love,
dinner
that sparkled
by the light of a single
candle that flickered
in the dark of night,
a laughter filled
Heart,
an evening
with no ending
and no start,
a beautiful smile
that still glows
in the dark,
and parting
with such sweet sorrow
and a very kind
remark.

Life lived simply,
is simply Beautiful.

“I saw a beggar cohen-d
he was leaning on his wooden crutch,
he said to me,
“You must not ask for so much.”
– Leonard Cohen
Rest in Peace my friend

To dream our lives
away,
leave the seeds
sown to harvest,
thrown on fields
across which we strode
in our ignorance
and our arrogance.

They were planted in
the fertile fields
of your Sacred Heart
by your family
and your friends.

“Those that were sown
on the good soil
are the ones who hear the Word
and accept it
and bear fruit,
thirtyfold and sixtyfold
and a hundredfold.”

Mark 4:20

Your Heart,
My Friend,

is the ground
upon which
you walk.

c

Love can be a polished surface occurring naturally on the Gemstone of Infinity.

Leave not
this field
to lie fallow
for long
.

Like a farmer
that has cleared his ground
and still remains,
surrounded by the silence
while waiting for the rain,
in form the same
as tears of Joy,
tears of pain.

pauloa“It’s the simple things in Life
that are the most extraordinary;
only wise men are able to
understand them.”
Paulo Coelho
.

Love,
simple Love,
and Joy
My Dear Friends,
are the only things
that will save us.
And with Forgiveness,
today,
this day in which we live,
is the only day
that will remain.

“Yes,oscar-w
I am a dreamer.

For a dreamer is one
who can only find his way by moonlight,

and his punishment is
that he sees the dawn
before the rest of the world.”
Oscar Wilde

As the wind sighed
through the leaves,
so did I.

Ripples
in the waves of the river
of Life
made me moan.
My world murmured
like a thing that grieves,
and then I looked up
and fell
in Love again.

A reflection
of Love
was in the Sky.
And it whispered to me:
“Love
is always
neigh”
.

“In my fantasy
I see a Just World

Where everyone lives
in Peace and Honesty

I dream of souls
that are always Free

Like a cloud that floats
Full of humanity
in the depths of the Soul.”
Sarah Brightman
(from Nella Fantasia)

Parents who insist
on telling their child
that their secret friend,
living within their beautiful Fantasy,
doesn’t exist,
perhaps forgot
that they too had,
at one time,
spoken to their
Angel.

   A Spiritual experience is
above all
a practical experience of
Love.

Perhaps
“It’s time that we began
to laugh and cry
and cry and laugh
about it all
again.”

– Leonard Cohen

A  Beautiful Sonnet of Shakespeare
can capture the very essence of Love.
A Beautiful painting
depicting the breathtaking Beauty
of God’s Gifts in Nature,
can reach down
into the very depths
of existence.
The Beauty
all around us,
can tell us
all we really need
to know.
.
“The only thing that we know
is that we know nothing
and that is the highest flight
of Human Wisdom.”
Leo Tolstoy

 Comprehending the illusions
of Life and Living
is not possible under assumptions
that do not correspond
with the real World
that exists within
the Sacred Human Heart.

Vitamins that help protect against cancer
from Care2
the world’s largest community for good
read more
By: Michelle Schoffro Cook

The best way to beat cancer naturally is to adopt a lifestyle to prevent it. Healthy, nutrient-rich food is an essential part of any anti-cancer plan.  Here are the top 5 vitamins that help protect against cancer.

1. Beta carotene
This precursor of Vitamin A is found in most orange and green vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and other leafy green vegetables.  An amazing nutrient, it has been shown in research to protect the lungs against toxins that are linked to lung cancer.

A study found that ex-smokers who ate green and yellow vegetables high in beta carotene daily decreased their risk of stomach and lung cancer.

 2. Vitamin B6

This B-Vitamin is essential to maintain a healthy immune system and helps protect the respiratory tract from pollution and infection.  In studies it has helped protect against cervical cancer.  Vitamin B-6 is primarily found in carrots, apples, organ meats, bananas, leafy green vegetables, and sweet potatoes.

3.  Vitamin C
One of the most well-researched nutrients, Vitamin C has shown great promise in the fight against cancer, both in prevention and disease-management.  A recent study was conducted in which forty patients with cancer of the breast, ovary, uterus, or cervix received large doses of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and other vitamins.

Another sixty-one patients with other kinds of cancer followed the same regime, while thirty-one patients received no vitamin supplements and served as the control group.  The control group lived an average of 5.7 months. Of the others, 80 percent of the patients with cancer of the breast, ovary, uterus, or cervix had a mean survival time of 122 months; patients with other forms of cancer lived an average of 72 months.  That translates into a length of life 13 to 21 times longer in those who used vitamin therapy.

4. Folic Acid
In studies, folic acid, also known as folate or vitamin B9, helps protect against cervical cancer and is necessary for the proper formation of the body’s own genetic material – DNA and RNA.  It is found in beets, cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, citrus fruits, and most types of fish.

5. Vitamin E
In addition to protecting against bowel cancer, Vitamin E works as a powerful antioxidant that reduces the damage caused by ozone and pollutants on the cells. It is found in eggs, wheat germ, liver, unrefined vegetable oils, and dark green vegetables.

What is the Meaning? / C. S. Lewis / Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking / Fall Break This Week

spectacular-tree-b

In the midnight quiet
of a railway station,
a little boy
sits quietly,
almost all alone,
waiting on
the Rock Island Line,
with just his precious
Mother’s voice
to soften the hard edges
of the hardwood bench,
the crisp night air,
the reflecting, echoing walls,
Life.

And I discover
with the Love
of a Mother,
nothing else
in Life
truly matters.

And her precious Life
echoes back:

“If I never
would have lived,
I could not
die.
Death
is proof of
Life.
And Life,
my Son,
is proof of Love.”

       Death is proof of Life.

“When I am down
and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come
and my Heart burdened be;

Then, I am still
and wait here in the silence,

Until you come
and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up,
so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up,
to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong,
when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up
To more than I can be.”

        What is the meaning?

My Dear Friends,

Life is bittersweet
and can be filled
with despair.

Upon a razor’s edge
are we cast
onto the stage
of a Magnificent Day,
that can quickly become
a long night
to stay.

As our minds reflect
upon Human misery,
the mirror of our awareness
shows the World can be
a terrible place.
The History
of the Human race
depicts something far less
than Humanity.

And the fear of death,
not knowing where we go,
or what takes place
after we tell
the brief story of our Life,
can become worse
than death itself.

very-pink-rose-b

                  Be at Peace.

What is the meaning
of the songs our Lives sing,
the sad and Joyous lyrics
that surround and abound?
Did anyone hear them?
Where did they go?
Into the vast Void,
the unknown and empty space
all around
us?

We become very reflective
of life wandering,
wondering.

Then,
by the Grace of God,
one day we discover
that what lies within
becomes the only
journey we ever
really make.

Beyond,
is far beyond
what we can ever
contemplate.

            What is Existence?

My Friends,
Nothingness
simply cannot exist!

This metaphysical concept
about the structure and nature of Reality,
points to a fundamental question:

What is Existence?

Greek philosophers long ago addressed this question.
They observed that nothingness (non-existence)
is self-contradictory.
There must be something in reality
that necessarily exists.
Everything in existence cannot just be
or cease to be.
There was never a time in the past
in which there was nothing in existence at all.
Something cannot come from nothing.
There must be something that always existed.

“And the LORD God
formed man
of the dust of the ground.”
– Genesis 2:7

This fundamental Philosophical question
continues to be explored
and is known as Ontology
(the study of Reality or Being).

tri-colored

         All of Nature is good.

God
perfectly answers
this ontological prerogative.
He provides the Source of Being
necessary to existence.

The Laws of Thermodynamics
are simple and straight forward:
matter cannot be created or destroyed
There is a necessary structure
to the Universe.
Some aspect of it
is necessary to existence
itself.

Augustine explained
the Idea of God,
of Being.
The result is a Powerful
and truly Beautiful Conception of Reality.
Understanding his treatise,
alternatively titled,
“Faith, Hope, and Love”,
can provide insight and comfort
for our overly burdened, doubtful
and weary minds.

trees-bending

Something cannot come from nothing.

“All of nature, therefore, is good,
since the Creator of all nature
is Supremely Good.
But nature
is not supremely and immutably good

as is the Creator of it.
Thus the good in created things
can be diminished and augmented.”
– from the Enchiridion by Augustine

augustine

LIKE A COLOSSUS BESTRIDING TWO WORLDS,
Augustine stands as the last Patristic

and the first medieval Father of Western Christianity.
He gathered together and conserved all the

main motifs of Latin Christianity
from Tertullian to Ambrose;
he appropriated the heritage of

Nicene orthodoxy;
he was a Chalcedonian before Chalcedon
– and he drew all this into an

unsystematic synthesis
which is still our best mirror
of the Heart and mind of the Christian
community in the Roman Empire.

His essentially conservative genius
recast the Patristic tradition
into the new pattern by which European Christianity
would be largely shaped and who,

wrought out the first comprehensive
“Philosophy of History.”

We become very reflective.

 There is no such thing as
nothingness.
Everything is something.
Nothing is nothing.
Man lives more by affirmation

Victor Hugo

One day,
we discover
in a singular precious moment,
meaning.
We find the essence
of our Being
in the reflection
of someone’s eyes,
all the Love
we have known,
all the caring
we have shown,
all our Hopes,
all our Dreams.

We see the whole Universe
in a teardrop
of Joy,
from one who Loves us,
more than Life,
more than the moment.

The essence of our Being.

When it all goes wrong,
our lives
seek shelter.
And within the Loving Heart
of another,
the storms that rage
all around
cannot be heard,
can never even be felt,
beyond the Loving arms
of someone’s embrace.

“When blackness was a virtue, bobdylan-b

I came in from the wilderness
a creature void of form

“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you
shelter from the storm.”

C.S. Lewis left his childhood Christian faith
to spend years as a determined atheist.
After finally admitting God existed,
Lewis gave in and knelt in prayer
to become what he described later as
“the most dejected and reluctant convert
in all England.”

Lewis’s long journey away from, and back to,
Faith
began with his mother’s death from cancer
when he was a boy.
Disillusioned that God had not healed his mother,
Lewis set out on a path toward
full-bodied rationalism and atheism.

The road back to Faith
was cluttered with obstacles
Lewis once thought impossible to overcome.
His conversion to a robust Christianity
required years of intellectual struggle
and came only after being convinced
that faith was reasonable.

The journey of C.S. Lewis,
perhaps the greatest defender of the faith
of the twentieth century,
provides valuable lessons for Christians today
in sharing the Gospel
with an unbelieving generation.

Lewis spoke and wrote often of
Joy,”
a deep longing of the human heart
this world cannot satisfy,
and presented it as
evidence for God.

“Joy”
was a recurring experience for Lewis
as a child and adolescent
and came to him through
nature,
literature
and music.

C. S. Lewis made a case for God
by arguing that every natural, innate desire
corresponds to some real object
that can fulfill that desire.
Since humans desire something
this world cannot satisfy,
something exists outside this earthly world
that can satisfy –
God.

Lewis addressed this basic human desire
allegorically in The Pilgrim’s Regress,
autobiographically in Surprised by Joy,
reasonably in Mere Christianity,
and in sermon in The Weight of Glory.

“If I find in myself a desire
which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation
is that I was made for another world.
(Mere Christianity, 120)

“Christians must present the Faith
as fulfilling our deepest desires.
We too often present Christianity
as merely a Philosophical system,
or the conclusion to a string of inferences
made based upon Scripture,
but the Salvation promised us in Scripture
applies to the whole person.”
– C. S. Lewis

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF MICROWAVE COOKING
from Curezone.org
read more

Creation of a “binding effect” to radioactivity in the atmosphere, causes a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;

Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];

Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];

Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];

Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas – cell tumors such as sarcoma];

Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;

Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;

Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,

In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

                 BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

                            Forensic Research Conclusions

From the above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence.

Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body, which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.

The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.

                   Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing”, has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems.
Not surprisingly, the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers.


MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

Microwave radiation is odorless and invisible and therefore hard to detect.

Microwave oven radiation is present whenever a microwave oven is turned on.

The microwave energy causes the water molecules in the food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food. It can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health. Once you turn off the oven, the microwaves disappear but until then, you may be exposing yourself to dangerous levels of radiation leakage.

Do Microwaves Leak?

A survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA.

Reality in the beautiful shape of Love.

 Love’s wounds never heal,
unless inflicted.
And Love
cannot seal
fate,
until your Love
you reveal.
Love,
My Friend,
is revealed
when the mind
no longer will conceal
what lies buried deep
within our very Human
Heart.

We carry
a reminder
of things that are not
and never were.
Why
do we remember
things that never were?

“You look at things
and ask why,

but I dream of things
that never were

and ask why not”
– George Bernard Shaw

   A strong vision of the future.

And when the dream is over,
will Love find you there,
wherever you are?
Or will you
still be waiting
with empty memories?

Our dreams
pull reality
from the Heart.
Hope
made manifest.
Prayer
answered.

  “Hope deferred
makes the Heart sick,

    but a dream fulfilled
is a Tree of Life.”
Proverbs 13:12

Each splendid evening,
through the lens
of your Heart,
you can see through all the years,
Life looking back,
through the laughter,
through the tears.
But you see
with a clarity
only imagined,
of what could be.

as I lay
beneath the tree.

I sat beneath a willow tree,
Where water falls and calls;
While fancies upon fancies solaced me,
Some true,
and some were false.

All things are vain

A dream fulfilled is a Tree of Life.

Gone?

To the floor

Flowering Perfection,
Resurrection,

Side by side,
My Friend,

in our anger
and our shame,
gives little chance
for our children

Dreams pull reality from the Heart.

The faint winds of memory
sweep by,
and the chill
is to the bone.

The path of time
circles round,
to find us
at last bound
for home.
Black and white moments
colored
by Grace

and soothed

Loving Hand.

“Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar, drawing near
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise for our days
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky
As we go, this we know
God is nigh.”
Rukard Hurd

Bewilderment, meaningless,
the final denouement,
the awaiting resolution,
of yet
another twist of fate,
another day.

And what
does it really mean?

     Lindsey Stirling

“You know,
I’ve realized that
a lot of times
I failed
to see the Beauty

that is in the moments
and the people
that surround me
every single day.

[This] reminds me
of a time
when I honestly felt
like no one
could see the Beauty
in me.
And maybe,
that’s something you
relate to,
because you think that
no one sees
the Beauty in you.
Please know
that there is a Gift
inside of YOU.”
Lindsey Stirling

With a strong Belief,
and
our Trust in God,
Prayers become Visions
that bear a remarkable semblance
of impending Salvation,
creating unshakeable Faith
that transforms Reality
in the beautiful shape
of Love,
and into dreams
that come true.

“Now the years are rolling by me.
They are rockin’ evenly.
I am older than I once was
And younger than I’ll be.
But that’s not unusual.
No, it isn’t strange.
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same.”
Paul Simon

We pay dearly
for news
that is neigh.
Endless
are the string of indignities.

Never quiet, eerie,
at once charming,
but disarming,
our fears come to
delude us.
We think,
rather than feel.
Our minds imagine,
but only the Heart,
My Friend,
will reveal.

And in reading
the Sacred Scripture of God,
we find beautiful

that sparkle with the delight of
Hope,

Empowered
through Prayer
by the Holy Spirit,
with a strong vision of the future,
we can be made
whole again.

Here’s to the night
that births the

to moments
that birth delight,
to Love everlasting,
Love within sight,
giving birth
to song
we listen to
all through the night.

sunsetting-on-ocean

The horizon of your dreams will finally be seen.

And here’s to the weariness
of day,
to make our rest
truly felt,
a memory
to stay.

Fluid visions
dancing through altered dimensions,
dreams mixing sweet
with tender direction,
as God guides we wistful
wanderers.

Such is
the power of
Prayer.

“How can the light
that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Is it a kind of shadow

Reaching into the night,
Wandering over the hills unseen.
Or is it a dream?

There’s a high wind in the trees,
A cold sound in the air,
And nobody ever knows when you go,
And where do you start?
Oh,
into the dark?

– Mike Batt

My Precious Friend,
the desolation
of Life
can end.
No languid thing of Beauty
is Tranquility.
It shines within
through the years.
And in that moment,
in the Beauty of the hour you Believe,
in that Tranquil moment,
the horizon of your dreams
will finally be seen.

Goodnight.

And Eternity in an hour.”
William Blake

From our friends at the Underground Health Reporter:
Is Your Diet Causing Your Depression?

If you suffer from depression or anxiety or other mental illness, it may help to look closely at your diet. link between diet and mental health is just as strong as the link between diet and physical health. “There’s a very strong link between quality of diet and risk of common mental disorders like depression and anxiety,” Felice Jacka, associate professor, psychiatric epidemiologist, and director of the Food and Mood Centre at Deakin University in Australia, told HuffPost Australia.

Plant-Based Wellness

This new field of research investigating the link between nutrition and mental health offers completely new methods of treating and preventing mental illness. The mainstays of psychiatric treatments—pharmacological drugs – have achieved only modest benefits. Compelling evidence indicates that nutrition could be a crucial factor in combating increased prevalence of mental health issues around the globe. Clear findings are already emerging as to which foods hurt the most, and which foods help the most.

Jacka and her team analyze how different dietary patterns support or undermine mental well being. One clear connection the team has identified so far is between rates of depression and intake of processed foods that contain high concentrations of…

     Fat
          Sugar
               Carbohydrates
                    Emulsifiers
                         Artificial flavors

Similarly, there is a relation between incidences of depression and low intake of healthful foods, for instance…

     Vegetables
          Fruits
               Legumes
                    Fish
                         Lean red meat

“Even if you’re eating good food, if you’re also eating a lot of junk food, it can be a problem,” Jacka said. On the other hand, even if you eat little or no junk food, you can off-balance your mental health by not eating enough fruits and vegetables.

                                            On Friday, 11-18-16
we will meet at the Texas Civil War Museum (817-246-2323) 760 Jim Wright Freeway (Loop 820).

Drop-off will be at the Museum at 10:00 a.m.

Pick up will be at the ANDERSON SCHOOL at 3:15 p.m.

FINANCIAL:   $8.00 for students & $10.00 adults. This fee funds our docent program on Leadership, slush fund for confederates      re-enacting the war and not accepting of Robert E. Lee’s surrender, and entrance to the museum.                Please pay Dr. A.

 The MUSEUM STAFF is Battle tested & ready to teach. Note the steady gaze looking for ANY sign of misbehavior.

LUNCH: Following our museum tour we will return to school and enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner.

GIFT SHOP: Yes! They have a GREAT gift shop with items related to the war we have not necessarily lost!

Uniform pants with a belt & red monogrammed school shirt are required. Unpolish your shoes, the rebels are recruiting this week. This fabulous museum can be enjoyed by the entire family,

Students are NOT to leave the Museum or restaurant at any time for any reason, including the need to secure a ride, go off to war & whip the Yankees (which also requires a uniform,  powder, good teeth to open the powder and gun) or use the restroom, without the approval of Dr. or Mrs. Anderson.
 
MUSEUM RULES *  No loud talking, running, or jumping or one of the Museum staff will get you. (They ALL look like ex-school principals.)
*  Stay with your chaperone at all times. If Dr. A seems jittery, he has had enough! Just offer him coffee with extra cream.
His motto is: “One cup per kid!”
*  Use clipboards for worksheets. Do not lean or write on exhibit display cases or walls.
*  No food, drink, candy, or gum is allowed inside. Give these items to Dr. A., he knows (burp!) what to do with them.
*  The museum has video surveillance & alarms so don’t be alarmed and return the muskets.
*  They reserve the right to refuse service and rough up those who do not wish to follow the rules of conduct. Now, there are exceptions and one of them is Dr. A. He is a good guy and won’t remember the rules, and he already looks roughed up.

“From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it’s the Hope of Hopes,
it’s the Love of Loves,
it’s the Heart of every man.”
– Bette Midler

     Beauty can liberate your Spirit.

We are never more
than far away.
But wherever we are,
near or far,
we cannot behold
all of God’s Beauty
that surrounds us,
if we look
only with our eyes.

“He has made everything beautiful
in its time.
Also, he has put Eternity
into man’s Heart . . .”
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Beauty
can liberate your Spirit.
Think upon it.
It has happened
many times before.

path-b“You’ll find Beauty
in the simplest things
and in the deepest depths
of complexity.
Beauty exists
for the purpose of
filling your Heart
with Joy.

Beauty’s reason
is pure delight.
Take delight
in Beauty
and it becomes
even MORE Beautiful.

Behold the Beauty
that fills your Life.
It is a Blessing
that has NO
equal.”
Ralph Marston

The Resplendence
of His Love
resides
even in a beautiful drop of rain,
nestled in the arms
of shades of green
on a leaf,
in a tree,
and in the chill
of evening’s breath,
with the warmth
of someone’s arms
around you.

“I wish someone’s arms eilene
were holding me as tight.
But the devil wind blows harder on me,
cold and bare
And someone’s arms won’t be reaching
for there’s nobody there.”
Eilen Jewell

new day,
a Promise
that lives within

How much
of Life
is left to live
and Love?

We are here
but a single fleeting moment,
like a drop of dew
at dawn,
never to stay.
Life

cast into the illusion
of a night and a day.

lake-and-sun-set

                    The illusion

Yes,
Life is brief
at best.
But one hundred percent
of the rest of your Life
is left
for you to Love,
to hold in warm embrace,
to share
with God’s Grace.

My wish for you
is that you truly live

every day,
and save
your death,
for the day
you die.

We choose
to truly live

or just exist,
and die a little
each day.

sea-waves-b

Save your death for the day you die.

My Dear Friends,
your mind
is NOT beating
to the rhythm of Life.
It feels not
any emotion.

It is simply
an intermediate
repository
of short term memory,
a biochemical processor
of mere momentary thought,
reflecting upon
Love’s labors lost
and found,
Life Crowned
and made to appear
profound.

Love looks not with the eyes,
but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid 
painted blind.”
William Shakespeare

Long term memory
engrams
reside a trillion fold,
and within every cell
of your very fragile body,
especially
the Heart.
Once in Love,
always in Love.
Once hurt by Love,
the pain is forever
felt.

drop-on-leaf-b

Nestled in the arms of shades of green.

Life
expresses itself
in action
and
emotion.
Life happens
from us,
not to us.

         Dwell in the Beauty.

Life
is the Flower,
but Love,
my Dear,
is the Nectar.

“Life
without Love,
is like a tree
without
blossoms or fruit.”
Kahlil Gibran

And what is the message of Love?
  It is
the Happiness and the Joy
YOU
bring to others.

The Beauty and Mystery of Life

You know,
my life is based on a true story,

  and so is yours.
And the truth is:
we have not truly lived
every day.

Life is the Gift
of every single
day.

  If you dwell
in the Beauty and Mystery of Life,
  how could you possibly
be sad,
lonely?

  Love is the aroma of
everything that abides
after a Spring rain,
the softness of the grass
upon which you lie,
the warmth of a sunny day,
the taste of a ripe peach,
whatever God allows
to come your way
.

compassion-b

Love is the boundless Tapestry
of God’s Beautiful Landscape
of Life,
and Loving,
and Living,
and Longing
to be.

Life is truly lived
moment to moment,
smile to smile,
handshake to handshake,
Loving deed
to Loving deed,

to meet someone’s
need.

leaves-b

    What is the message of Love?

My friends,
we need not fear
death.
Life is not really lost
on the day
we die.

It is only lost
while we live:
lost in sorrow,
lost in a sigh,
lost
in a precious moment
that passed you by,
lost in the sadness
that made you cry,
lost in what
your tender Heart felt
but did not say,
lost in never
feeling grateful to God
for the Beautiful Gift
of another new
Day.

white-flower-c

   The shadow’s call will fly away.

Yes,
we die
moment by moment
and not
in a day.

Don’t be living
to die.

Life
is the most exciting
when we Love someone
more than Life,
when we transcend
this moment
of our awareness,
to discover
we are alive inside
the Hopes and Dreams
of someone else,
that Life
is more than living,
it is Dreaming the Dream
that Love
is all there is,
and all
that should ever
be.

mts-and-sun-b

Dreaming the Dream that Love is all there is.

When we awake
inside the Heart of another,
we discover
the reason for being –
the Beauty of Love.

We die
day by day,
moment by moment.

Life is lost
wallowing in the poverty

of selfish actions.
It is lost wasting
the precious Gift
of time.

We destroy the Gift
of our Life

each moment it is not
fully lived.

Now,
let us busy ourselves
Giving,
Sharing,
Smiling,
Laughing,
Daring,

Forgiving,
Loving,
and truly Living.

Give Life a chance.
Take a chance
on Love!

Goodnight.

We die moment by moment and not in a day.

A Wind That Blows Lonely / The Antithesis of Love / Friday: Modern Art Museum

Love is the answer,
and the Prayer.

child-and-mom

Look into the future smiling back.

There’s a wind that blows
lonely
across the barren plains
of our memory.
Soft,
it caresses the face
that refused to turn
into the wind,
toward the ones
so Loved,
to look into
the future
smiling back.
And now,
the past
no longer belongs
to us.

“Yes I knowdon
how lonely life can be.

The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free.
But I don’t let the evening
bring me down

Now that you’re around me.

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
This is my belief.”
– Don Mclean

flowers-and-lake-b

Life itself is an answer to Prayer.

God still whispers
into the restless void
of our lonely aching Hearts.

But so very often,
we recognize not
His answers to our Prayers,
simply because
we have never had need to pray
for so very many Blessings in Life
already bestowed
upon us.

No,
we never had need
for such Prayer,
for our needs were met
long before
awareness
needed a reason
to be.

So very many Blessings in Life
we never recognized
were answers
to Prayer,
Prayers we never had the need
to say.

“Therefore I tell you,
do not worry about your life,
what you will eat, or about your body,
what you will wear.
For life is more than food,
and the body more than clothing.
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap,
they have neither storehouse nor barn,
and yet God feeds them.
Of how much more value are you
than the birds!”
Luke 12:22-24

Such is the Love
of a Mother and a Father
for a deeply Loved
Child.
Such is the Love
of your Father in Heaven
for YOU.

fountain-in-forest

    You are an answer to Prayer.

Life itself,
is an answer
to Prayer.

You
are an answer
to Prayer.

Look about you.
There is nothing,
absolutely NOTHING,
that does not answer
some Prayer,
somehow,
somewhere,
at sometime,

by someone.

island-with-tree-b

   Silence has the loudest voice.

Dear Friends,
there is scarcely anyone

who does not desire something
beyond
what is good for them.
So rather than hurt you
when the honesty’s too much,
God answers some Prayer
with the tender syllables
of silence,
until the moment
subsides.

Silence is like a River of Grace
inviting us to leap unafraid
into its beckoning depths.
It is dark and mysterious
in the waters of Grace.
Yet in the silent darkness
we are given new eyes.
In the Heart of the Divine
we can see more clearly who we are.
We are renewed and cleansed
in this
River of Silence.

– MACRINA WIEDERKEHR, Seven Sacred Pauses

Such is Love
in you,
that in the Sacred stillness
and the quiet
of a thoughtful moment,
with Wisdom and Grace,

  you proclaim a silent Love
Divine.

Silence is the only language
of the realized.

“There are times
when silence
has the loudest voice.”
Leroy Brownlow

By simply accepting
what God already provides,
we are made aware
and acknowledge
Prayer
never offered,
never needed,
but answered
just the same.

My Dear Friends,
Love

is the answer,
and
the Prayer.

“In the darkness of my dreaming,
the Light of you will stay.
If I could be close beside you,

If I could be where you are,
If I could reach out and touch you,
and bring you back home.
Is there a way I can find you
Is there a sign I should know,
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home
to me.”
– Roma Ryan

So very often
we find ourselves
in the midst
of the greatest Answer
to the most fervent Prayer:
that we are
deeply
Loved.

Welcome Home.

With a deep seated Love of Courage to map the unknown.

The Antithesis of
Love

My Precious Friends,
Addiction
is the antithesis
of Love.
It can become
the destroyer of Worlds –
of your World,
and sadly,
that of your child.

Little understood,
like Cancer,
it devours the very substance
of the Life
we pretend goes on.
The fabric of our existence
feeds our addictions.
And the bacterial excrement of
Alcohol,
like cancer, can devour
and permanently change
the very structure
of the Human brain,
and more importantly,
the Hopes and Dreams,
of our precious Children.

Alcohol, like cancer, can devour and permanently change the very structure of the Human brain.

People who have been drinking
large amounts of alcohol
for long periods of time
develop serious and persistent
changes IN THE BRAIN.

It is
much like an enemy in battle,
sneaking behind the lines
to disarm the troops
before they can engage
in combat,
while front line soldiers
stare straight ahead,
totally unaware,
wondering what is going on,
and why we cannot attack
and win.

Our ignorance,
our blind arrogance,
our naivety,
disarm us
and we never know
how!

“Sometimes we know,
sometimes we don’t.

Sometimes we give,
sometimes we won’t.

Sometimes we’re strong,
sometimes we’re wrong.

Sometimes we cry.

Well,
we’re gonna have to sit down
and think it right through.
If we’re only Human
what more can we do?
– Van Morrison

Our other addictions –
to linear thinking –
becoming too focused to get
the BIG picture,

to compressing time,
to the allure of complexity and dependency
upon technology,
to drugs we know
virtually nothing about,
have shrunk the number of outlets
for the daring, aggressive nature
of mankind,
that fought the good fight,
with a deep seated
Love of Courage
to map the unknown
and go
where mankind
has never gone
before.

This saddens,
but doesn’t surprise.
The Heroes
of our proud Past,
the Soldiers of our good fortune,
no longer are
of the same branch,
on the same tree,
or even
in the same forest.

The courage
to Love one another
enough to fight
the good fight,
to vanquish
the enemy within,
we cannot accept,
because
we cannot even recognize
that it is us.

“We shall meet the enemy,
and not only may he be ours,
he may be us.”
– Walter C. Kelly, Jr.

But when Life
breaks you,
and brings you
to your knees,
know that God will hear you
through your fervent Prayer,
and hold you
in warm embrace.

akiane“If we experienced the present through Eternity
and Eternity through the present,
we would know true Love.”
– Akiane Kramarik
from her upcoming book:
Eternity Is Not That Long

Love
can command you,
it can rule over
your precious Heart

or
you can let it
pass you by.

But please remember:

Everything
outside of Love
is a lie.

Do not be trapped
within a prison
of doubt.
The Loving You
is no illusion.

The Honesty of your Love
is the only
Truth.

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you
free.

– John 8:32

Goodnight.

                                       On Friday, Nov. 4, 2016,

we will meet at the MODERN ART MUSEUM OF FORT WORTH, 3200 Darnell Street (telephone 817-738-9215) at 9:45 a.m. Do NOT drop your child(ren) off early or without Dr. and Mrs. Anderson present. Our docent guided tour of  “KAWS WHERE THE END STARTS”  will start at 10:00 a.m. Following the tour we will dine at the museum’s restaurant, Café Modern, at 11:30 a.m. Parents, guests and family members and friends are invited to join us.

                   Pick-up is at 2:30 p.m. at the museum.

After lunch we will have a self-guided tour of the permanent exhibit and shopping at the fabulous gift store. Parents are advised that mature subject matter may be on exhibit including language, nudity, and sexual content.

Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, SpongeBob, Hanna-Barbera, and Peanuts) to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity.

The Modern maintains one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art in the United States.

FINANCIAL: No fee for admission.

GIFT SHOP: Has fascinating items. (I bought a DOG Bowl! Stop laughing!)

LUNCH: Café Modern serves contemporary American cuisine. Please provide funds for lunch.  One check per table will be provided. A gratuity will be added. Students please order from the Children’s Menu & Observe POLICIES of the Museum.

Uniform pants with a belt, polished shoes & monogrammed red shirts required. Parents / NEIGHBORS / SIBLINGS & WHO ARE YOU? are always invited to participate on our trips.

Our Cherished Dreams / The Perfect Food / Cancer and Deodorants / Friday: Fossil Mania

As we embrace
this moment
and say hello,

we usher in goodbye,
and look
into the space
where once lived
our Cherished Dreams.
lotusThe road of Life narrows

the longer it gets,
as we stumble and fall,
never truly knowing why.

And from those
who help us up,
who sustain and nurture us,
who come to Love us,
who forgive us all,
the lessons

we learn from living,
tell us
Wonderful Things:

While in Love,
there is no
measure of time,
no distance
between our thoughts
of each other.

With someone you Love,
you live in a space
the size of your
Heart.
And everything
you truly want
in Life,
is inside.

tree-glowing-b

      We have all been dreaming.

Now,
you may think
that’s not much space.
But the vast and possibly
Infinite Universe,

that houses all the Stars and Galaxies,
most of which
we simply cannot see,
started in a space
much smaller
than the period
at the end of this
sentence [.]

Most physicists now believe
that the entire Universe
began with one Big Bang.
At first,
all the matter and energy
in the Universe
was crammed together
in one unimaginably small dot.

Move out of your house, and Live in your Heart.

The Universe
of your awareness,
most of which
you simply cannot see,
began with but a tiny beat
of your very small precious Heart.
And now,
it encompasses
everything in this World
your Heart
desires.

“Have you never tried
to find a comfort from inside you?
Have you never been happy
just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else
be strong?”

– John Farrar

Yes,
LOVE
occupies the Infinite space
between every beat

of your Heart.
Eternity
truly is Love
never ending.

sun set

If you want to fly
across the Sunrise
and discover
what begins each
shining day,
and begin your
endless flight
through time,
to someone be
Eternally mine”.

“Love is like a resting place,
a shelter from the storm.
It exists to give you comfort.
It is there to keep you warm.
And in those times of trouble,
when you are most alone
the memory of Love
will bring you
Home.”

John Denver

There is a hidden landscape
that exists
within you –
  a Divine Essence.
Let the Divine
within
claim its place
in your Heart,
and in your Life.

Honoring the Love
within you,
is accepting
the Gift of Life,
the Gift of God’s
Love.

A hidden landscape exists within you.

When the Truth
of your Love
joins with another,
you form
a Sacred Whole.

“To thine own self
be true
– William Shakespeare

Who you are
cannot be defined
by who you think
you are.
You can never really see
yourself,
except in the reflection
of someone’s eyes,
someone who truly Loves
You,
as God Loves
You.

swan

You can never really see yourself.

Through your tears
of Joy,
will you be washed clean
of all doubt,
all sadness,
every moment
of deep regret.

In quantum physics,
if something is not forbidden,
it necessarily happens.

Do not forbid
the Love of God
and the Joy
He envisions for YOU
to enter your
Heart.

The Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and 4039) are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow). This view combines ALMA observations, made in two different wavelength ranges during the observatory’s early testing phase, with visible-light observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble image is the sharpest view of this object ever taken and serves as the ultimate benchmark in terms of resolution. ALMA observes at much longer wavelengths which makes it much harder to obtain comparably sharp images. However, when the full ALMA array is completed its vision will be up to ten times sharper than Hubble. Most of the ALMA test observations used to create this image were made using only twelve antennas working together — far fewer than will be used for the first science observations — and much closer together as well. Both of these factors make the new image just a taster of what is to come. As the observatory grows, the sharpness, speed, and quality of its observations will increase dramatically as more antennas become available and the array grows in size. This is nevertheless the best submillimetre-wavelength image ever taken of the Antennae Galaxies and opens a new window on the submillimetre Universe. While visible light — shown here mainly in blue — reveals the newborn stars in the galaxies, ALMA’s view shows us something that cannot be seen at those wavelengths: the clouds of dense cold gas from which new stars form. The ALMA observations — shown here in red, pink and yellow — were made at specific wavelengths of millimetre and submillimetre light (ALMA bands 3 and 7), tuned to detect carbon monoxide molecules in the otherwise invisible hydrogen clouds, where new stars are forming. Massive concentrations of gas are found not only in the hearts of the two galaxies but also in the chaotic region where they are colliding.

Let the Divine within claim its place.

The Heart
is a theme woven
throughout the Holy Bible
and is mentioned
in the King James Version
830 times!

Why?

b-b

       Form a Sacred Whole.

Hope
is one thing
that defines us
as Human Beings.

Hope connects us
to something more,
to something larger
than we envision

as ourselves,
larger than Life itself.

Hope
is the Whisper
of God,
telling us
of His Love.
It is His Grace,
flowing through
the will
to be.

“We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a Universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.”                – Carl Sagan

My Friend,
we have all been
dreaming.
Now,
close your tired eyes
and rest your
weary mind.
God’s Promise
is to stay with
you,
and let you feel
just how much
He Loves You.

“Our revels now are ended.
These our actors,

As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made of, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
– William Shakespeare

God can never be
closer to you,
than to live in
your precious Heart.
And it is there
He dwells.
Go to Him
in Prayer –
in the Cathedral
of your Heart.


sun-set-algow-bMove out
of your house,
and Live in your Heart.

This is the only place

Furnish
your new home
with smiles,
and laughter,
with kind thoughts
and deeds.

The Essence
of your Being
will one day be found
scattered throughout

the Universe
of your awareness,
and that of so many others.
And your Life,
through your Love,
will go
on and on and on.

My Dear Friends,
YOU

are Infinitely Loved,

you can

Infinitely Love.

Love
is the only dimension
in which one
never dies.

Yes,
God is Love,
the purest Love
there can ever be.

And,
Child of God,
so are YOU.

Go to Him
in Prayer,
and He will
abide with you
FOREVER.

When the Truth of your Love joins with another, you form a Sacred Whole.

The Avocado

has been called the world’s most perfect food? It has achieved this distinction because many nutritionists claim it not only contains everything a person needs to survive – but it has also been found to contribute to the prevention and control of Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions.

The avocado originated in Puebla, Mexico and its use dates back to 10,000 years B.C. Since AD 900, the avocado tree has been cultivated and grown in Central and South America. In the 19th century, the avocado made its entry into California, and has since become a very successful commercial crop. Ninety-five percent (95%) of U.S. avocados are gown in Southern California.

The avocado, also called the alligator pear, is a high-fiber, sodium-and cholesterol-free food that provides nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, is rich in healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (such as omega-3 fatty acids), vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate) – as well as potassium.

Foods naturally rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as avocados, are widely acknowledged as the secret to a healthy heart, a brilliant brain and eagle eyes.

Dr. Daniel G. Amen, a clinical neuroscientist, psychiatrist, brain-imaging expert and author of the New York Times bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life counts avocados as one of the top brain-healthy foods that can help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease. That’s not only because of the avocado’s omega-3 fatty acid content but also its Vitamin E content,

An international journal called Alzheimer ’s Disease and Associated Disorders, reported its findings from years of clinical trials – high doses of Vitamin E can neutralize free radicals and the buildup of proteins to reverse the memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients; reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s in the early stages and retard the progression of the disease;

Folate content – helps to prevent the formation of tangled nerve fibers associated with Alzheimer’s.

The virtues of the avocado are too numerous to mention, but here are just a few more health benefits that its nutritional profile provide:
Monounsaturated Fats – These types of fats help control triglycerides in the bloodstream, lower blood cholesterol and control diabetes.

Folate – This water-soluble B vitamin promotes healthy cell and tissue development. According the National Institute of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements, “This is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth such as infancy and pregnancy. Folate is also essential for metabolism of homocysteine and helps maintain normal levels of this amino acid.”

Lutein – This is a carotenoid (a natural pigment) that protects against cataracts and certain types of cancer, and reduces the risk of macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in adults 65 years of age and older. Avocados contain 3 or more times as much lutein as found in other common vegetables and fruits.

Oleic acid and Potassium – Both of these nutrients also help in lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of high blood pressure.

Before you indulge in avocados to your heart’s content, however, remember that they have lots of calories because of their fat content. According to WebMD, “A medium-sized avocado contains 30 grams of fat, as much as a quarter-pound burger. That’s why diet experts have long urged Americans to go easy on avocados in favor of less fatty fruits and vegetables. But now nutritionists are taking another look. They’re finding that most of the fat in an avocado is monounsaturated – the “good” kind that actually lowers cholesterol levels. Thanks to this new understanding, the U.S. government recently revised its official nutrition guidelines to urge Americans to eat more avocados.”

Some deodorants could cause breast cancer: Swiss study
 Published: 26 Sep 2016  read more

Women who regularly use deodorants containing aluminium salts could risk developing breast cancer, a new Swiss study warns.

“I think we should avoid all deodorants containing aluminium salts,” according to  André-Pascal Sappino.

“And it’s very difficult to be sure that the so-called ‘without aluminium’ brands really are without,” added the oncology Professor from the University of Geneva.

“Asbestos is cheap, has very attractive industrial potential, and it took 50 years to ban it. We hope it doesn’t take so long to ban aluminium salts,” said Sappino.

Like asbestos, aluminium is not detectably mutagenic in bacteria, but subcutaneous injections of aluminium salts in mice resulted in “very aggressive tumours”.

The study, co-authored by four researchers from the Clinique des Grangettes, is published in the International Journal of Cancer.
