Heart of Pure Gold / The Truth About Sugar / Fall Break This Week

“And those who were seen dancing
were thought insane
by those who could not
hear the music.”
– Nietzche

It can be good to be TALL.

Heart of Pure Gold

Eyes give away
What we never say,
That a heart
Can yearn to stay
Like a ship provisioned
And in the harbor,
Rigged and ready
To journey into tomorrow.

But she quits her moorings
And spreads her beautiful white sails
T
o dance with ease
In the morning breeze
And departs for the ocean blue.
Majestic, my Dear Friends,
With her swelling sails,
And waves thrashing
Upon her hull,
Like the beating Heart

In you,
Pounding to get out
The see the world
Too.

To show the way back to the Love.

“Someone at my side says,
“There! She’s gone!” “Gone where?”
“Gone from my sight, that’s all.”
She is just as large in mast and spar
and hull as ever she was . . .
Her diminished size is in me,
not in her.”
And just at that moment . . .
there are other eyes watching her coming
and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout,

“Here she comes!”
– David Marcus

Where you are
May never seem
The place your heart
Longs to be,
And tomorrow
May appear
The last hope
Of today.

“I want to live,
I want to give.
I’ve been a miner
for a heart of gold.
It’s these expressions
I never give,
That keep me searching
for a heart of gold.”
Neil Young

So profound
Can life be,
That our remembrance
Of such deep hunger,
Of our search for meaning,
Our longing to be,
Can in our hard earned empathy,
In our learned generosity,
Enable the heart
To truly see those in need,
And lead me to be
So very, very far beyond
Me.

     And they need you to be near.

“Happiness is the only good.
The place to be happy is here.
The time to be happy is now.
The way to be happy
is to make others so.”
– Robert Green Ingersoll

There is a Light
In the harbor of our dreams.
It is shinning
For you
And for me,
To show the Way
Back to the Love
That always was,
Always will be,
To the time
When we will meet again,
In the dawn of a beautiful tomorrow
In our Prayers,
In our Dreams.

Love remembers only tomorrow.

In our time of plenty,
More becomes
Less and less,
Until more and more
Leave less than less,
And too much
Of so much more
Becomes nothingness.
And life and living
Become dying and death,
Lost in a haze,
The fog of a war,
So far from won,
That one and one
Is none.

   The sun only rises before it sets.

Our children
Do not really need much.
They need Love,
And they need you.
They need you
To walk into a room
And turn on the lights
With a smile.
They need the quiet
Of the night
To be broken
By the whisper of your voice.

They need to laugh.
And yes,
They need to cry,
Tears of joy.
And they need you
To be near
If ever they find
They really need you.

The strength of beginning,
Starting again,
Lies in the forgiveness
Of ending,
Of what brought us
To this.

Majestic, with her swelling sails, and waves thrashing upon her hull, like the beating Heart in you.

“There is a ship
and she sails the sea

She’s loaded deep,
as deep can be

But not as deep
as the love I’m in

I know not
if I sink or swim.”

– Travers, Stookey, Okun, & Yarrow

The day after tomorrow
Can yesterday be,
And forever,
Made of a Savior
We do not see,
Save in our Hearts,
Our Prayers,
Our everlasting need.

   They need the quiet of the night.

Two thousand years
Of tomorrows,
Was ever yesterday,
Since He
Forgave us everyone,
For they too,
Did not know
What they do.

“If I had to choose between
loving you and breathing,
I would use my last breath
to say I love you.”
– Unknown

Love seeks not
A knowing
In which it may be,
It remembers
Only tomorrow,
Endures what is
Today,
Is creation of a moment
To be.
Love is all about
Tomorrow,
The beauty of hope
Which shelters us
From the tragic storms
Of today.

It sees as it seeks,
Never truly dying,
Never knowing death,
Never seeing
What had no beginning,
Never ending.

Lead me to be so very, very far beyond me.

“Death is a natural step
In the progression of life.”
You Cannot Die
by Margaret Stevens

Children born tomorrow
Do not know of your regret
today,
Nor should they.
Today births not yesterday.
A child loves the moment
It lives for.
The sun only rises
Before it sets.

In our failing to see,
We look into,
Not through,
Eyes beautiful,
Translucent, easily iridescent.
Transparent are we,
And this I am told:
“Look for God
In the eyes
Of one you Love,
To seek a
Heart of Pure Gold.”

The day after tomorrow can yesterday be.

For God,
My Friends,
Is Love,
All the Love
Your very precious Heart
Can behold.
And we,
Reflections
In His Loving Eyes,
Eyes that see
You.

The Truth About Sugar
New Science Documentary
Published on Jul 19, 2015

I ask you, and your children,
to watch this highly informative documentary.
It can save your life and the life of your precious children.

It can prevent much suffering.

Not that many of us know quite how to quit consuming so much SUGAR or, in fact, what the downsides to a sugary diet actually are.

The Truth About Sugar documentary, aired on BBC One aimed to demystify some of the myths about sugar – namely, what food products secretly contain it – and demonstrate the impact it can make on your health if you reduce the amount you eat.

It charted the lives of four people, who consumed nearly 119 teaspoons of sugar between them a day.

Journalist Fiona Phillips is on a mission to find out the truth behind the recent headlines on sugar. She discovers why some of us have more of a sweet tooth than others, which sugars you can enjoy guilt-free, why there is so much sugar hidden in food you would think was purely savoury and what effect sugary drinks have on the appetite. Fiona also helps four Brits, whose sugar-heavy diets could be putting their health at risk, to change their ways.

From coming up with low-sugar recipes to finding ways to beat the sweet cravings, they will see whether cutting back to the levels suggested by health authorities is really achievable and what the benefits actually are. As the dieters progress on their journey, it soon becomes clear that the transformations will be dramatic.

Thanksgiving is a time of celebration, but for 45 million turkeys across the United States, it is no laughing matter. Turkeys raised for food are bred to grow so quickly that they develop multiple health problems, including heart disease and leg disorders.

They are raised in overcrowded, poorly ventilated ammonia-filled facilities where they endure painful debeaking and detoeing procedures.

Since 1986,
Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project
has encouraged people to save a turkey
at Thanksgiving through sponsorships
that help rescue animals and provide care for them
at their sanctuaries,as well as educate and advocate for turkeys
and other farm animals everywhere.
Be a buddy and Adopt a Turkey.
We have two adopted turkeys and a cute baby!
