The longer you look, the more you will discover.

The roots of our Being
are intertwined with all
God’s Creatures on Earth.
We are blended
Earth and Spirit,
Fire and Water,
and transparent
to God.
Those of us who look,
can observe a Sacred Image
of themselves
absorbed onto the Infinite
Canvass of Life.
The longer you look,
the more you will discover,
in wonder,
about this beautiful Life.

A brushstroke of Divine Creation

Our lives are Lovingly painted
with a brushstroke
of Divine Creation.

God is in billions and
billions of beautiful Portraits,
like you and me.
.
Yes,
you are truly
one of the most beautiful
Originals
that God has ever created.

Our lives are Lovingly painted.

Mother,
you may think you gave
Life to a precious Child.
But in Truth,
a Child brings you
back to Life.
And the Sacred Life
that is your Child,
comes through you
not from you.
.
“Your childrenKhalil_Gibran
are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters
of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you
but not from you.

And though they are with you,
yet they belong not to you.”
– Khalil Gibran

Your Child
is the pathway
to Infinity,
to Love immeasurable,
and more Joy
than you can ever
imagine.
.
My Friends,
to cultivate Love
we MUST dream,
we must play,
eat well, rest, meditate,
share our Divine Love
with those around us
and transcend the moment
to reach for the stars,
where one day,
we will surely be.

What God wants for you is real.

Hold firm

to your vision of what Love
can be,
of what you
can become.
For these things
are true:
your Love can be
all that your Heart
desires.
You can become
what you dream.
 .
Wake up
to the reality
that what surrounds you
is not real.
.
Look about you.
God’s children,
young and old,
are truly suffering
from the illusions of this Life
and the conditions of living
WE have imposed
upon ourselves.
WE created this
artificial World.
And it is becoming
an environment
more and more difficult
for our precious children
to survive.
.

To cultivate Love we MUST dream.

What God wants for you
is real.
And what He wants
is simple:
He wants you to
be Joyful,
to know of His Love for you,
and to share
ALL the Love
He has for you.
.
Go to the Lord
in Prayer.
He will reveal
what He wants for
you.
Open His Sacred Word
and read.
He will reveal
what is truly Real.
.
Where the Ocean
greets so many streams of Life,
voices unknown
join to acclaim
the Joy of reunion.
.
The Waters of Life
always divide and then
reunite.

Such is Love of God.
He waits patiently
for you
to join Him
in the vast Ocean
of His Love.
.

Our lives are painted with the brushstroke of Creation.

Tears of Joy
and tears of pain
spring forth
from the self-same well.
How you share
the living waters
of Love
will determine the course
your river of Life
will take.
.
“I could see you
in singing skies and dancing waters,
laughing children growing old,
and in the Heart
and in the Spirit
and in the truth
when it is told.”
– John Denver

By sharing the gift of God’s Love
you will become interdependent
and transformed
and you will find
you are stronger than you,
and no longer
are you
just you.

My Dear Friends,
we were placed
in a beautiful garden.
The Gardener is inviting us
to bring color back
to this colorless world.

Through the eyes of Love
the negative becomes
the Nectar of Life.

Loving
with all your Heart
is all God wants
until the end
of time.

Goodnight

You will become transformed.

Foods That Help Fight Depression
read more from WebMD.com

Turkey

The traditional Thanksgiving bird has the protein building-block tryptophan, which your body uses to make serotonin. That’s a brain chemical that plays a key role in depression, researchers say. In fact, some antidepressant drugs work by targeting the way your brain uses serotonin. You can get the same mood-boosting effect from chicken and soybeans.

Brazil Nuts

This snack is rich in selenium, which helps protect your body from tiny, damaging particles called free radicals. One study found that young people who didn’t have enough of this nutrient in their diets were more likely to be depressed. The researchers couldn’t say that low selenium caused depression, though. Just one Brazil nut has almost half your daily requirement of the mineral so be careful to limit how many you eat. Other foods with this mineral include brown rice, lean beef, sunflower seeds, and seafood.

Carrots

They’re full of beta-carotene, which you can also get from pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Studies have linked this nutrient to lower levels of depression. There’s not enough evidence to say that it can prevent the disorder, but it can’t hurt to get more in your diet.

Clams and Mussels

These seafood favorites are a good source of B-12. Some studies say that people with low levels of the vitamin are more likely to have depression. It may be that a lack of it causes a shortage of a substance called s-adenosylmethionine (SAM), which your brain needs to process other chemicals that affect your mood. If you’re looking for other B-12 foods, try lean beef, milk, and eggs.

Coffee

A jolt of caffeine can be a pick-me-up that helps you feel more motivated. But if you have postpartum depression or panic disorder, some studies suggest that it might make your symptoms worse. Other researchers say a cup of joe can lower your risk of getting depression, though they’re not sure why.

Leafy Greens

They’re packed with folate, which your brain cells need to work well and which may help protect against depression. Food manufacturers in the U.S. add this vitamin, also known as B9, to enriched grains like pasta and rice. You can also get it from lentils, lima beans, and asparagus.

Salmon

This and other fish like herring and tuna are high in polyunsaturated fats. Researchers think those can help you fight depression. One type of these fats, called omega-3 fatty acids, may help brain cells use chemicals that can affect your mood. A few small studies show that people who weren’t depressed had higher levels of omega-3s than those with the mood disorder.

Milk

It’s a good source of vitamin D. If you have very low levels of this nutrient in your body, that can sometimes cause depression. One Norwegian study found that people who took a vitamin D supplement were less depressed a year later than those who didn’t. Don’t like milk? Boost the D in your diet with enriched cereals and juices, and canned fish.

Caution: Junk Food

It may be fast and filling, but these processed foods can be bad news for your mood. Scientists have studied how diets high in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fatty foods affect how you feel. Many found some link between these unhealthy eats and depression. Your best bet: a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Caution: Alcohol

Heavy drinking can make depression symptoms worse over time, because alcohol makes your brain less active. It also can make antidepressant medications less effective.

in Life you want
if you will just help
enough other people
get what they want.”
