A Calm Act of Surrender / Naps and the Heart / Hope is on the Horizon – Sept. 6

pink flower

                   A cast of one.

When places
distant call,
all are tales of Love at Heart,
destiny ignited
by acts of deep reflection.

This day can form a lonely stage
upon which we play,
A cast of one
in search of none.
But to share today,
and search for Love
to come our way,
is to gently tread
with our Heart,
and not our head.

         Search for Love.

In such clam surrender
we end our day,
failing to explore
never ending trails
that lead to such Splendor
as we have never known.

The awareness of all the Love
that lies within the Human Spirit
is truly empowering.
It is the birth
of our Sacred Reality.

 You are a beautiful Masterpiece,
a work of Art
unparalleled in all Creation.
Crafted with such Love
that you have been revealed
in a New Reality.
Words falter
in describing the Truth
of just how beautiful
you really are.
In the Eyes of God,
with ever step you take,
you dance.
With ever breath,
you sing.
And with every thought of Love,
you pour the essence of your being
into everyone around you,
creating Sacred waves
in the vast Ocean of time.

A lonely stage

You are
a Pristine form of God’s Love.
The Purity of this Love
can effortlessly heal
those around you
and allow them to cope with
the ILLUSION that is
Living.

Revealed in a New Reality.

Our Sacredness
is encoded into every
fragile cell of Human Life.
It can emerge
from the wasteland of living
and become our Consciousness
in a new birth
of freedom and deliverance.

The choice
is yours.

As Micheal Forrester clearly establishes:
“Scientists are aware that 97% of our DNA is,
as they call it “junk DNA”.
They call it junk because they don’t see
that we have any use for it.
But Humans will soon know and understand

why 97% of our DNA has a higher purpose
and why its transformation is leading us
into an awakening that we
never could have imagined.”
This discovery points to the significance
of sound frequencies and vibrations
in the origin of human life
and the possibility that Creation
was generated by waves of
consciousness.

Unparalleled in all Creation.

Did we really think
that what constitutes almost all of
each precious Human Creation
would be worthless, “Junk”?
Really?

We have assumed for many years
that Humans use only a small portion
of our brains.
Less than 10% is frequently cited.
We even hear that there’s a part of our brain
that’s not used at all.
.
But from an evolutionary perspective,
there is not much waste to what our bodies do.
Most of the brain is used.
.
Imaging studies that map brain activity
like PET scans and MRI
show that brain activity is spread
throughout the brain.
.
Consciousness can exist to varying degrees
among humans and other animals.
A new theory incorporates the philosophy
that a quality of mind is not only present in Humans,
but in all things.
.
We know so very little.
Bu science is powerful.

We may never be able to understand.

Max Born and Erwin Schrödinger
created a new field of physics:
quantum mechanics
.
Objects, according to
no longer move along a single well-defined path.
Rather, they can simultaneously take different paths
and end up at different places at once.
Physicists speak of
of different paths.
.
Our knowledge
of the true nature of our reality
is very, very limited.
.
In fact,
we may never be able
to understand.
.
“But the natural man receiveth not
the things of the Spirit of God:
for they are foolishness unto him:
neither can he know them,
because they are spiritually discerned.”

A Human embryo
in the early weeks of Life,
while in utero, “in the womb“,
in the state of an embryo or fetus
is nearly 98 percent water.

worldCouple this fact
with the knowledge
that matter, of which we are made,
is flashing into and out of existence
billions of times each second.

So where do, what constitutes
so little of we go,
when what we are composed of
flashes off?
Another dimension?
Perhaps that’s why
we are dead tired
ever now and then.

The next time someone says,
“I don’t think you are
all here”,
they may be right!
Or perhaps,
you never were
here.

It is now generally believed
that less than 5% of the physical composition
of the known Universe is made up of ‘matter’.
But
scientists are now asking,
.
“Could the actual percentage
of the physical composition be
zero?”

In the early weeks of Life we are 98% water.

My Dear Friends,
a road map
to a Life fulfilled
has been gently and Lovingly placed
in a Book,
The Holy Bible.
And God wants to place it
gently
into your hands.
It is the Oasis
for all Life
in this moral desert in which
we dwell.
It is a Holy Fountain,
a Book of Secrets
to Immortality.

In your fragile and precious hands
you will feel the greatest freedom
that exists in this life,
to open it,
to open your Heart,
to open the Book of Life
and find your journey complete,
to find the long night is over.

Such Splendor as we have never known.

Yes,
you’ve got to walk
that lonesome highway.
But
never again
by yourself.
Never again.
.
We are all dancing
away the time
through the stained glass windows
of fading colors
longing to gleam bright.

John Denver

Perhaps
the most beautiful path
to follow
in seeking a calm surrender
in our search for Love
can be found in
“Annie’s Song”,
by John Denver.

Our precious little girl,
Annie,
was named after this
truly beautiful and deeply inspiring
song.

 “Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again”
– John Denver
.
In the beautiful story of
The Secret Garden,
there is a hidden door.
In every precious Human Heart
there is also
a hidden door.
Your Loving Father
in Heaven above
wants you to
OPEN it.
 May God always hold you
in the Palm of His Hand.
And may you always hold
His comforting Words
in the palm
of your hand.
.

Goodnight.

 Naps and the Heart
by DR. JANE GILBERT
in preventdisease.com

Regular naps
have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Those who have a siesta at least three times a week
were shown in research to be
more than a third less likely to die of
cardiovascular disease.

A leading scientist from the extensive study,
Dimitrios Trichopoulos of the
Harvard School of Public Health in Boston said:

“Taking a nap could turn out to be an important weapon
in the fight against coronary mortality.”

The effect proved to be particularly strong for working men.
Those who regularly took a little time out from their working day
to have a short snooze had a sixty-four percent
lower risk of death
from heart disease.
However, even non-workers showed a benefit.
Those occasionally napping had
a twelve percent lower coronary mortality rate
and those who systematically napped
had a thirty-seven percent reduction in death
from cardiovascular events.

“To forgive to forgive b
is to set a prisoner
free
and discover
that the prisoner
was YOU.”
– Lewis B. Smedes


Naps and stress

We’ve all been there,
after a few late nights it can be difficult
to deal with the stresses
and strains of the working day.
Little problems suddenly seem insurmountable
and it’s not just our minds that struggle
when we’re sleep deprived,
our bodies suffer too.

Let’s look at that graphically.
People who took a nap,
were able to outperform those who didn’t.

nap map

When we’re under psychological pressure
the body releases chemicals designed to help us fight or flee.
When we’re tired even more of these stress hormones
flood through the body.
That was great when we were cavemen fighting sabre-toothed tigers,
but in the modern world when stress is sustained and psychological
the results are potentially deadly.
The hormones can ramp up blood pressure and blood sugar levels predisposing to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

The good news is that research shows that naps can mitigate
the effects of too little sleep,
decrease the release of these stress chemicals
and help protect our bodies from
the negative effects of stress.

We are all dancing away the time.

So if napping is so good,
why are many of us so embarrassed or ashamed of it?
I mean let’s face it, whether it’s called a siesta, an afternoon snooze
is ingrained into many cultures.
But in the US, the UK and many other western societies,
sleeping in the daytime can be seen as laziness,
a sign of getting old  or lacking drive.
With 650,000 Americans dying of heart disease every year,
maybe it’s time to change the way think
and the way we work.

How to have the perfect power nap

Keep it consistent.
Try to nap at the same time every day.
This helps your body adjust its normal circadian rhythms
and ensures you get maximum benefit.
make it a regular part of your daily routine.

Our DNA has a higher purpose.

Sleep or stimulants?
Do you slug back a strong cup of coffee
to beat that post-lunch slump?
If you do, you may not be taking the best approach.
A study compared the effectiveness of caffeine,
day time naps and getting more night-time sleep
as ways of overcoming the afternoon dip
and the nap won hands down.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to bin the Java.
Both napping aficionados and scientific researchers
at Loughborough University recommend
having a cup of coffee immediately before your nap.
When you wake twenty minutes later,
the caffeine will have kicked in
so that you get a double boost.

It’s all about the adenosine.
Adenosine is the chemical responsible for our feelings of tiredness,
it slows down nerve cell activity making us sluggish and slow.
Adenosine levels naturally decrease when we snooze
and caffeine blocks our body’s response to the chemical,
so together you have the ultimate power nap.

Now,
if will excuse me
it’s time for my nap.

One thought on “A Calm Act of Surrender / Naps and the Heart / Hope is on the Horizon – Sept. 6

  1. Dr. A~ thank you. Always a font & trickling down (how do you maneuver this seeming dichotomy?!) of such essential truths. Met Mr. John Denver when I was 23, living in NYC. Felt too embarrassed to tell him that I loved, his music, especially “Sunshine on my Shoulders” so much, “I must have played it like 2,341 times….🎶😴🎶. It’s true~ you might never get another chance, so take it.
