“When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark.
Though I may not know the answers
I can finally say I am free.
And if the questions led me here
Then I am who I was born to be.”
I believe that the nature of our reality
leads us to a threshold of understanding.
That Love is all there is.
– T. S. Eliot
As we explore the nature of this existence,
Of our being,
We may find reality to be
Incomprehensible, perplexing, unbelievable.
In our minds,
And in this space,
We may think we have arrived,
Before we started.
Perhaps, we have.
Is this Love’s
Never ending journey?
Our timeless friend, poet and philosopher,
T. S. Eliot
Posits this poetically:
“We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.”
In looking back,
The beautiful lives
We have been privileged
On this perilous
Journey of life.
And we may come
Why so many people
Along the way,
Loved us so much,
And why we came
To Love each other.
Poets and writers of song have always known why.
They have understood
The true nature of our reality.
They have felt, deep inside the fiber of their being,
That Love draws us together,
Enables us to survive,
Keeps us vibrant and alive,
Keeps the planets in their orbits
And the stars twinkling above.
Such is the nature of the Love
We feel coming from us.
But in reality,
Love flows through us,
Unconditional, Pure in Spirit, Everlasting,
From Heaven Above.
It takes a lot of Love
To overcome the evil we meet along the way.
But Love, only Love, can prevail.
Somehow, I feel that we do as we should,
When we reach deep inside our hearts
To feel the pain of others,
And understand that a vision of Goodness
Is the only thing that will sustain us.
Now I know there is no greater Good,
Than to give Love from oneself to another,
To someone that Love
Seems to have abandoned.
There is enough Goodness in one heart
To fill another.
There is enough Love in every heart,
In your heart,
To give a flower of God’s Love
To everyone you meet.
Together, we form a Breathtakingly Beautiful,
From the Garden
Of God’s Bountiful Love.
These Flowers, from Heaven Above,
Are a Gift from God,
To everyone, everywhere
And everything below.
Your heart is incredibly beautiful,
And the most fascinating part about you.
Share the beauty with everyone,
And every living thing around you.
For we are all one and the same,
Here and nowhere in the same moment.
“Before I formed you in the womb,
I knew you.
Before you were born,
I set you apart for my holy purpose.”
The Story of God’s Love
Is very plain to read,
Each page begins with you,
And it will never end.
The Story tells the Truth.
Your Love was formed
In the Mind of God,
Love here, now and everlasting.
So close your eyes and feel the Warm Embrace.
Open your arms and feel your Heart race,
Let it beat wild and free.
For the Heart that beats within
Is a Heart not even yours.
And has always belonged,
Brief at best,
The lives we live
Are God’s Bequest.
And the story of our lives,
Is no story at all,
Without feeling and caring,
Gift of Love
“Driven by the forces of love,
the fragments of the world
are seeking each other,
so that the world may come into being.”
Teilhard de Chardin
Physical Signs of Nutritional Deficiencies
from our friends at NaturalNews.com
Heart: Irregular heart beat may indicate a magnesium deficiency. High blood pressure can be remedied with lots of ascorbic acid and L-lysine daily. General heart health can be bolstered with CoQ10 or Ubiquinol.
Thyroid: A swollen throat, poor or slow digestion, and general sluggishness from hypothyroidism may be improved by adding iodine supplements or iodine-rich foods from seaweed.
Red scaly skin on face near nose: This may be a sign of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency. Supplement with B-complex vitamins or organic bee pollen granules. Make sure you’re eating enough whole grains, eggs and dairy. Plant-based foods include spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, avocados and nuts. B2 helps activate the other B vitamins.
Mouth and tongue: Pale fissured tongue – iron deficiency; sore painful fissured tongue – vitamin B3 (niacin) deficiency; sore burning tongue and lips or lips peeling – vitamin B2 deficiency; painful sore tongue with a smooth appearance – folate (B-9) deficiency – avoid synthetic folic acid.
Nails: White spots or ridges usually indicate low zinc. Soft or brittle nails usually demonstrate a magnesium deficiency.
Low energy, anemia: Vitamin B12 is the vitamin for these signs. Make sure that you use methylcobalamin sublingual tablets or skin patches only and include the other B vitamins as well.
Skin: Cold hands doesn’t always indicate a “warm heart.” It can indicate hypothyroidism (iodine deficiency) or low magnesium levels. Excessive spontaneous bleeding can be from insufficient vitamin C and/or vitamin K.
There are different quality levels of vitamin and mineral supplements. But if you visit the orthomolecular website, you’ll see how the right supplements at the right amounts can replace pharmaceuticals. Sources for this include:

NaturalNews Press Release: A Texas patent inventor has launched a collection of 3D-printable objects that function as key components in a non-electric, home-based food grow system that can be operated for pennies. The story of the invention – as well as the 3D-printable parts – is available at the non-profit www.FoodRising.org website.
The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box grows enormous quantities of food without using electricity or soil. It requires no weeding and uses no pumps, motors or complex parts of any kind. It grows highly-nutritious, mineral-rich foods using about 1/20 the water of conventional agriculture and about half the space of soil gardening.
My hero, Mike Adams, also known as the “Health Ranger,” developed the system based on the work of Professor Kratky and gives away the 3D-printable parts via downloadable files at FoodRising.org. Adams is also distributing DIY videos that instruct people on how to build their own systems using inexpensive parts and common tools.
All the 3D-downloadable parts are available now at:
Pre-built systems are offered for sale and the t-glase filament needed to print out the parts is also available at www.SupplySource.com.
“The Maker movement is about empowering people with innovative, grassroots solutions that can substantially improve the quality of their lives,” Adams explains. “This Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow System allows people to produce their own mineral-rich, better-than-organic foods for mere pennies.”
As I enter her garden,
I find myself all alone.
The place I gently lay her down to sleep,
I marked with my heart,
Shaped in stone.
The softness of her gentle eyes
I carry with me day by day,
Pressed against so many memories,
For that is Love’s
The way goodbye reveals itself,
To be, to stay alive,
To give those left behind
The will to live,
Somewhere in time,
We will meet again.
For you are still alive
While my Heart waits for you.
And Love, our Love, will survive.
