The Gravity of our Being / The Best Fish to Eat / Live To Be 100

“My purpose in writing
Is to communicate
the joy
I have experienced in living.

To share the discovery
That Life is precious
And can be fully lived

In Prayer,
In Love,
In Peace.

– Wm. C. Anderson

“Not only is the universe
stranger than we imagine,
it is stranger than we can imagine.
Sir Arthur Eddington
English astronomer (1882 – 1944)

The philosopher Aristotle observed,
“That people do not naturally or spontaneously
Grow up to be morally excellent or practically wise.
They become so, if at all, only as a result
Of a life long personal and community effort.”

nebula 3 ant-nebula-menzel-3-Mz-3We are together
Involved in a great mission
Of shaping
And forming the future
Through our collective efforts At guiding our children.
And, my friends,
There can be NO
Greater cause
To which we
Dedicate our lives.

As our dreams Awash upon
The shores of this
Very brief time,
We come into moments of leaving,
Still dreaming
There is time,
Time to go ashore.

Time does not exist,
Save to measure,
To compare, to discover
Two bodies in space,
Moving inexorably,
One around another.
Much like
The weight of our Souls,
The gravity of our Being,
Keeping us closer
To each other
For the fulfillment of
Our dreams,
Never fully knowingjupiter-atmosphere-voyager-1
The Angelic Beings
That live and breathe Within.

That Human Hearts Reach out,
One around another,
Ever circling,
Ever searching
For Beauty beyond
What we can behold.

Stranger than we can imagine.

Hearts
Reaching out,
Seeking someone
To Love,
Someone to hold,
To ever be near,
In time
No longer measured
By the hours in a day,
In a day no longer
Different than night,
In a night
No longer
In deep dismay.
.
.

For moments may be measured
By the beating of two hearts,
Circling around,
One and other.

The earth says, “Hello”. You twinkle above us. We twinkle below.

.
And One
May place a dressing
Upon the wounds
Of living,
And make another Way,
A way to be
Different,
To share in a
Grace Divine.
.
.

And we,
Through acts of Loving and Forgiving,
No longer spiral down
In the refuse of broken dreams,
And overcome
Centrifugal forces,
Pride and self,
That keep us apart
From Humanity.
a_029Your Heart’s intuitions
Will guide you
To realize
The deepest subtleties
Of your existence
And the meaning of Life.

Love.

                                What Are the Best Fish to Eat?

Among the safest in terms of contamination, and the highest in healthy omega-3 fat, is wild-caught Alaskan and sockeye salmon. Neither is allowed to be farmed, and are therefore always wild-caught. The risk of sockeye accumulating high amounts of mercury and other toxins is reduced because of its short life cycle, which is only about three years.

Additionally, bioaccumulation of toxins is also reduced by the fact that it doesn’t feed on other, already contaminated, fish. The two designations you want to look for on the label are: “Alaskan salmon” (or wild Alaskan salmon) and “Sockeye salmon.”  read more

The ultimate consequences of choice
may be very different
from their first appearance.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Considered by some to be the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein played a central role in analytic philosophy.

.
Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Characterization of Philosophy:
It is not a theory,
Or a doctrine,
but rather an activity.
It is an activity
Of clarification
(of thoughts),
And more so,
Cf critique
(of language).

Happiness linked to longer life
by Amanda MacMillan, Health.com

Being happy doesn’t just improve the quality of your life. According to a new study, it may increase the quantity of your life as well.

Older people were up to 35% less likely to die during the five-year study if they reported feeling happy, excited, and content on a typical day. And this was true even though the researchers took factors such as chronic health problems, depression, and financial security out of the equation. read more

Live to be 100

Anyone born after the year 2000: They’ll probably live to 100, according to research from Denmark.

We could live that long, too, says Walter Bortz II, MD, a clinical associate professor of medicine at Stanford University: “What’s holding us back are bad habits.”

Focus on what you can do, like loading up on fruits and veggies (add five years), working out five days a week (add two to four years), and cutting down on stress (may add up to six years). read more
