Life lived simply, is simply Beautiful.

Love is just a Dream
by another name.
What the Heart feigns
to be something other,
remains the same.

Narrow streets
have we wandered down,
seldom looking up
to see the Pure Light
of Love,
the Light
of God’s Love
glowing in the dark.
And in our memory,
His Love,
is streaming from
Heaven Above.

God gives sight to those
blinded by the night
of never knowing
they are so deeply
Loved.
All we need do
is ask.

“And all things,
whatsoever you shall
ask in Prayer,

believing,
you shall receive.”
Matthew 21:22

       See the Pure Light of Love.

God
is the Hope
of the hopeless.
He alone provides direction
to those so lost
in the twisted canyons of the
mind,
swallowed up in doubt,
buried deep in
depression.

If Life
has fastened your Heart
to a stone,
there is news
My Friend,
in which
you can take delight.

“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know Life
at all.”

Joni Mitchell

My Dear Friends,
the simple things
in Life
will unfetter you,
set your weary mind and heavy Heart
free.

tree-and-birds

The simple things in Life are the most extraordinary.

Wisdom
is in the wind,
whistling through the
trees,
faint and simple sounds
birthed in memories:
a long stroll in the park
walking hand in hand
with someone you deeply Love,
dinner
that sparkled
by the light of a single
candle that flickered
in the dark of night,
a laughter filled
Heart,
an evening
with no ending
and no start,
a beautiful smile
that still glows
in the dark,
and parting
with such sweet sorrow
and a very kind
remark.

Life lived simply,
is simply Beautiful.

“I saw a beggar cohen-d
he was leaning on his wooden crutch,
he said to me,
“You must not ask for so much.”
– Leonard Cohen
Rest in Peace my friend

To dream our lives
away,
leave the seeds
sown to harvest,
thrown on fields
across which we strode
in our ignorance
and our arrogance.

They were planted in
the fertile fields
of your Sacred Heart
by your family
and your friends.

“Those that were sown
on the good soil
are the ones who hear the Word
and accept it
and bear fruit,
thirtyfold and sixtyfold
and a hundredfold.”

Mark 4:20

Your Heart,
My Friend,

is the ground
upon which
you walk.

Love can be a polished surface occurring naturally on the Gemstone of Infinity.

Leave not
this field
to lie fallow
for long
.

Like a farmer
that has cleared his ground
and still remains,
surrounded by the silence
while waiting for the rain,
in form the same
as tears of Joy,
tears of pain.

pauloa“It’s the simple things in Life
that are the most extraordinary;
only wise men are able to
understand them.”
Paulo Coelho

Love,
simple Love,
and Joy
My Dear Friends,
are the only things
that will save us.
And with Forgiveness,
today,
this day in which we live,
is the only day
that will remain.

“Yes,oscar-w
I am a dreamer.

For a dreamer is one
who can only find his way by moonlight,

and his punishment is
that he sees the dawn
before the rest of the world.”
Oscar Wilde

As the wind sighed
through the leaves,
so did I.

Ripples
in the waves of the river
of Life
made me moan.
My world murmured
like a thing that grieves,
and then I looked up
and fell
in Love again.

A reflection
of Love
was in the Sky.
And it whispered to me:
“Love
is always
neigh”
.

“In my fantasy
I see a Just World

Where everyone lives
in Peace and Honesty

I dream of souls
that are always Free

Like a cloud that floats
Full of humanity
in the depths of the Soul.”
Sarah Brightman
(from Nella Fantasia)

Parents who insist
on telling their child
that their secret friend,
living within their beautiful Fantasy,
doesn’t exist,
perhaps forgot
that they too had,
at one time,
spoken to their
Angel.

   A Spiritual experience is
above all
a practical experience of
Love.

Perhaps
“It’s time that we began
to laugh and cry
and cry and laugh
about it all
again.”

– Leonard Cohen

A  Beautiful Sonnet of Shakespeare
can capture the very essence of Love.
A Beautiful painting
depicting the breathtaking Beauty
of God’s Gifts in Nature,
can reach down
into the very depths
of existence.
The Beauty
all around us,
can tell us
all we really need
to know.

“The only thing that we know
is that we know nothing
and that is the highest flight
of Human Wisdom.”
Leo Tolstoy

 Comprehending the illusions
of Life and Living
is not possible under assumptions
that do not correspond
with the real World
that exists within
the Sacred Human Heart.

Vitamins that help protect against cancer
from Care2
the world’s largest community for good

By: Michelle Schoffro Cook

The best way to beat cancer naturally is to adopt a lifestyle to prevent it. Healthy, nutrient-rich food is an essential part of any anti-cancer plan.  Here are the top 5 vitamins that help protect against cancer.

1. Beta carotene
This precursor of Vitamin A is found in most orange and green vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and other leafy green vegetables.  An amazing nutrient, it has been shown in research to protect the lungs against toxins that are linked to lung cancer.

A study found that ex-smokers who ate green and yellow vegetables high in beta carotene daily decreased their risk of stomach and lung cancer.

 2. Vitamin B6

This B-Vitamin is essential to maintain a healthy immune system and helps protect the respiratory tract from pollution and infection.  In studies it has helped protect against cervical cancer.  Vitamin B-6 is primarily found in carrots, apples, organ meats, bananas, leafy green vegetables, and sweet potatoes.

3.  Vitamin C
One of the most well-researched nutrients, Vitamin C has shown great promise in the fight against cancer, both in prevention and disease-management.  A recent study was conducted in which forty patients with cancer of the breast, ovary, uterus, or cervix received large doses of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and other vitamins.

Another sixty-one patients with other kinds of cancer followed the same regime, while thirty-one patients received no vitamin supplements and served as the control group.  The control group lived an average of 5.7 months. Of the others, 80 percent of the patients with cancer of the breast, ovary, uterus, or cervix had a mean survival time of 122 months; patients with other forms of cancer lived an average of 72 months.  That translates into a length of life 13 to 21 times longer in those who used vitamin therapy.

4. Folic Acid
In studies, folic acid, also known as folate or vitamin B9, helps protect against cervical cancer and is necessary for the proper formation of the body’s own genetic material – DNA and RNA.  It is found in beets, cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, citrus fruits, and most types of fish.

5. Vitamin E
In addition to protecting against bowel cancer, Vitamin E works as a powerful antioxidant that reduces the damage caused by ozone and pollutants on the cells. It is found in eggs, wheat germ, liver, unrefined vegetable oils, and dark green vegetables.

What is the Meaning? / C. S. Lewis / Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking / Fall Break This Week

spectacular-tree-b

In the midnight quiet
of a railway station,
a little boy
sits quietly,
almost all alone,
waiting on
the Rock Island Line,
with just his precious
Mother’s voice
to soften the hard edges
of the hardwood bench,
the crisp night air,
the reflecting, echoing walls,
Life.

And I discover
with the Love
of a Mother,
nothing else
in Life
truly matters.

Marie 5

Marie Anderson

And her precious Life
echoes back:

“If I never
would have lived,
I could not
die.
Death
is proof of
Life.
And Life,
my Son,
is proof of Love.”

dark-cloud-and-sun-b

       Death is proof of Life.

“When I am down
and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come
and my Heart burdened be;

Then, I am still
and wait here in the silence,

Until you come
and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up,
so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up,
to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong,
when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up
To more than I can be.”

        What is the meaning?

My Dear Friends,

Life is bittersweet
and can be filled
with despair.

Upon a razor’s edge
are we cast
onto the stage
of a Magnificent Day,
that can quickly become
a long night
to stay.

As our minds reflect
upon Human misery,
the mirror of our awareness
shows the World can be
a terrible place.
The History
of the Human race
depicts something far less
than Humanity.

And the fear of death,
not knowing where we go,
or what takes place
after we tell
the brief story of our Life,
can become worse
than death itself.

very-pink-rose-b

                  Be at Peace.

What is the meaning
of the songs our Lives sing,
the sad and Joyous lyrics
that surround and abound?
Did anyone hear them?
Where did they go?
Into the vast Void,
the unknown and empty space
all around
us?

We become very reflective
of life wandering,
wondering.

Then,
by the Grace of God,
one day we discover
that what lies within
becomes the only
journey we ever
really make.

Beyond,
is far beyond
what we can ever
contemplate.

            What is Existence?

My Friends,
Nothingness
simply cannot exist!

This metaphysical concept
about the structure and nature of Reality,
points to a fundamental question:

What is Existence?

Greek philosophers long ago addressed this question.
They observed that nothingness (non-existence)
is self-contradictory.
There must be something in reality
that necessarily exists.
Everything in existence cannot just be
or cease to be.
There was never a time in the past
in which there was nothing in existence at all.
Something cannot come from nothing.
There must be something that always existed.

“And the LORD God
formed man
of the dust of the ground.”
– Genesis 2:7

This fundamental Philosophical question
continues to be explored
and is known as Ontology
(the study of Reality or Being).

tri-colored

         All of Nature is good.

God
perfectly answers
this ontological prerogative.
He provides the Source of Being
necessary to existence.

The Laws of Thermodynamics
are simple and straight forward:
matter cannot be created or destroyed
There is a necessary structure
to the Universe.
Some aspect of it
is necessary to existence
itself.

Augustine explained
the Idea of God,
of Being.
The result is a Powerful
and truly Beautiful Conception of Reality.
Understanding his treatise,
alternatively titled,
“Faith, Hope, and Love”,
can provide insight and comfort
for our overly burdened, doubtful
and weary minds.

trees-bending

Something cannot come from nothing.

“All of nature, therefore, is good,
since the Creator of all nature
is Supremely Good.
But nature
is not supremely and immutably good

as is the Creator of it.
Thus the good in created things
can be diminished and augmented.”
– from the Enchiridion by Augustine

augustine

LIKE A COLOSSUS BESTRIDING TWO WORLDS,
Augustine stands as the last Patristic

and the first medieval Father of Western Christianity.
He gathered together and conserved all the

main motifs of Latin Christianity
from Tertullian to Ambrose;
he appropriated the heritage of

Nicene orthodoxy;
he was a Chalcedonian before Chalcedon
– and he drew all this into an

unsystematic synthesis
which is still our best mirror
of the Heart and mind of the Christian
community in the Roman Empire.

His essentially conservative genius
recast the Patristic tradition
into the new pattern by which European Christianity
would be largely shaped and who,

wrought out the first comprehensive
“Philosophy of History.”

We become very reflective.

 There is no such thing as
nothingness.
Everything is something.
Nothing is nothing.
Man lives more by affirmation
than by bread.
Victor Hugo
.

One day,
we discover
in a singular precious moment,
meaning.
We find the essence
of our Being
in the reflection
of someone’s eyes,
all the Love
we have known,
all the caring
we have shown,
all our Hopes,
all our Dreams.

We see the whole Universe
in a teardrop
of Joy,
from one who Loves us,
more than Life,
more than the moment.

two-geese-b

The essence of our Being.

When it all goes wrong,
our lives
seek shelter.
And within the Loving Heart
of another,
the storms that rage
all around
cannot be heard,
can never even be felt,
beyond the Loving arms
of someone’s embrace.

“When blackness was a virtue, bobdylan-b
the road was full of mud.

I came in from the wilderness
a creature void of form

“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you
shelter from the storm.”

– Bob Dylan

C.S. Lewis left his childhood Christian faith
to spend years as a determined atheist.
After finally admitting God existed,
Lewis gave in and knelt in prayer
to become what he described later as
“the most dejected and reluctant convert
in all England.”

Lewis’s long journey away from, and back to,
Faith
began with his mother’s death from cancer
when he was a boy.
Disillusioned that God had not healed his mother,
Lewis set out on a path toward
full-bodied rationalism and atheism.

The road back to Faith
was cluttered with obstacles
Lewis once thought impossible to overcome.
His conversion to a robust Christianity
required years of intellectual struggle
and came only after being convinced
that faith was reasonable.

The journey of C.S. Lewis,
perhaps the greatest defender of the faith
of the twentieth century,
provides valuable lessons for Christians today
in sharing the Gospel
with an unbelieving generation.

Lewis spoke and wrote often of
Joy,”
a deep longing of the human heart
this world cannot satisfy,
and presented it as
evidence for God.

“Joy”
was a recurring experience for Lewis
as a child and adolescent
and came to him through
nature,
literature
and music.

C. S. Lewis made a case for God
by arguing that every natural, innate desire
corresponds to some real object
that can fulfill that desire.
Since humans desire something
this world cannot satisfy,
something exists outside this earthly world
that can satisfy –
God.

Lewis addressed this basic human desire
allegorically in The Pilgrim’s Regress,
autobiographically in Surprised by Joy,
reasonably in Mere Christianity,
and in sermon in The Weight of Glory.

“If I find in myself a desire
which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation
is that I was made for another world.
(Mere Christianity, 120)

“Christians must present the Faith
as fulfilling our deepest desires.
We too often present Christianity
as merely a Philosophical system,
or the conclusion to a string of inferences
made based upon Scripture,
but the Salvation promised us in Scripture
applies to the whole person.”
– C. S. Lewis

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF MICROWAVE COOKING
from Curezone.org
read more

Creation of a “binding effect” to radioactivity in the atmosphere, causes a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;

Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];

Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];

Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];

Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas – cell tumors such as sarcoma];

Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;

Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;

Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,

In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

                 BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

                            Forensic Research Conclusions

From the above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence.

Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body, which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.

The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.

                   Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing”, has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems.
Not surprisingly, the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers.


MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

Microwave radiation is odorless and invisible and therefore hard to detect.

Microwave oven radiation is present whenever a microwave oven is turned on.

The microwave energy causes the water molecules in the food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food. It can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health. Once you turn off the oven, the microwaves disappear but until then, you may be exposing yourself to dangerous levels of radiation leakage.

Do Microwaves Leak?

A survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA. More often than not, a simple adjustment was all that was needed to stop the leakage.

What Causes Microwave Ovens To Leak?

Slamming the oven door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges.

Side by side,
My Friend,
we come alive.

But dense and hallucinatory,
the World we have created
in our anger
and our shame,
gives little chance
for our children
to mend.

Dreams pull reality from the Heart.

The faint winds of memory
sweep by,
and the chill
is to the bone.

The path of time
circles round,
to find us
at last bound
for home.
Black and white moments
colored
by Grace
and time,
and soothed
by our Artist’s
Loving Hand.

“Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar, drawing near
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise for our days
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky
As we go, this we know
God is nigh.”
Rukard Hurd

Bewilderment, meaningless,
the final denouement,
the awaiting resolution,
of yet
another twist of fate,
another day.

And what
does it really mean?

     Lindsey Stirling

“You know,
I’ve realized that
a lot of times
I failed
to see the Beauty

that is in the moments
and the people
that surround me
every single day.

[This] reminds me
of a time
when I honestly felt
like no one
could see the Beauty
in me.
And maybe,
that’s something you
relate to,
because you think that
no one sees
the Beauty in you.
Please know
that there is a Gift
inside of YOU.”
Lindsey Stirling

With a strong Belief,
and
our Trust in God,
Prayers become Visions
that bear a remarkable semblance
of impending Salvation,
creating unshakeable Faith
that transforms Reality
in the beautiful shape
of Love,
and into dreams
that come true.

“Now the years are rolling by me.
They are rockin’ evenly.
I am older than I once was
And younger than I’ll be.
But that’s not unusual.
No, it isn’t strange.
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same.”
Paul Simon

We pay dearly
for news
that is neigh.
Endless
are the string of indignities.

Never quiet, eerie,
at once charming,
but disarming,
our fears come to
delude us.
We think,
rather than feel.
Our minds imagine,
but only the Heart,
My Friend,
will reveal.

And in reading
the Sacred Scripture of God,
we find beautiful
Floral Arrangements,
in form of words
that sparkle with the delight of
Hope,
and the zest
of a red, red Rose,

Empowered
through Prayer
by the Holy Spirit,
with a strong vision of the future,
we can be made
whole again.

Here’s to the night
that births the
Dawn,
to moments
that birth delight,
to Love everlasting,
Love within sight,
giving birth
to song
we listen to
all through the night.

sunsetting-on-ocean

The horizon of your dreams will finally be seen.

And here’s to the weariness
of day,
to make our rest
truly felt,
a memory
to stay.

Fluid visions
dancing through altered dimensions,
dreams mixing sweet
with tender direction,
as God guides we wistful
wanderers.

Such is
the power of
Prayer.

“How can the light
that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Is it a kind of shadow

Reaching into the night,
Wandering over the hills unseen.
Or is it a dream?

There’s a high wind in the trees,
A cold sound in the air,
And nobody ever knows when you go,
And where do you start?
Oh,
into the dark?

– Mike Batt

My Precious Friend,
the desolation
of Life
can end.
No languid thing of Beauty
is Tranquility.
It shines within
through the years.
And in that moment,
in the Beauty of the hour you Believe,
in that Tranquil moment,
the horizon of your dreams
will finally be seen.

Goodnight.

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
William Blake

From our friends at the Underground Health Reporter:
Is Your Diet Causing Your Depression?

If you suffer from depression or anxiety or other mental illness, it may help to look closely at your diet. link between diet and mental health is just as strong as the link between diet and physical health. “There’s a very strong link between quality of diet and risk of common mental disorders like depression and anxiety,” Felice Jacka, associate professor, psychiatric epidemiologist, and director of the Food and Mood Centre at Deakin University in Australia, told HuffPost Australia.

Plant-Based Wellness

This new field of research investigating the link between nutrition and mental health offers completely new methods of treating and preventing mental illness. The mainstays of psychiatric treatments—pharmacological drugs – have achieved only modest benefits. Compelling evidence indicates that nutrition could be a crucial factor in combating increased prevalence of mental health issues around the globe. Clear findings are already emerging as to which foods hurt the most, and which foods help the most.

Jacka and her team analyze how different dietary patterns support or undermine mental well being. One clear connection the team has identified so far is between rates of depression and intake of processed foods that contain high concentrations of…

     Fat
          Sugar
               Carbohydrates
                    Emulsifiers
                         Artificial flavors

Similarly, there is a relation between incidences of depression and low intake of healthful foods, for instance…

     Vegetables
          Fruits
               Legumes
                    Fish
                         Lean red meat

“Even if you’re eating good food, if you’re also eating a lot of junk food, it can be a problem,” Jacka said. On the other hand, even if you eat little or no junk food, you can off-balance your mental health by not eating enough fruits and vegetables.

                                            On Friday, 11-18-16
we will meet at the Texas Civil War Museum (817-246-2323) 760 Jim Wright Freeway (Loop 820).

Drop-off will be at the Museum at 10:00 a.m.

Pick up will be at the ANDERSON SCHOOL at 3:15 p.m.

FINANCIAL:   $8.00 for students & $10.00 adults. This fee funds our docent program on Leadership, slush fund for confederates      re-enacting the war and not accepting of Robert E. Lee’s surrender, and entrance to the museum.                Please pay Dr. A.

 The MUSEUM STAFF is Battle tested & ready to teach. Note the steady gaze looking for ANY sign of misbehavior.

LUNCH: Following our museum tour we will return to school and enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner.

GIFT SHOP: Yes! They have a GREAT gift shop with items related to the war we have not necessarily lost!

Uniform pants with a belt & red monogrammed school shirt are required. Unpolish your shoes, the rebels are recruiting this week. This fabulous museum can be enjoyed by the entire family,

Students are NOT to leave the Museum or restaurant at any time for any reason, including the need to secure a ride, go off to war & whip the Yankees (which also requires a uniform,  powder, good teeth to open the powder and gun) or use the restroom, without the approval of Dr. or Mrs. Anderson.
 
MUSEUM RULES *  No loud talking, running, or jumping or one of the Museum staff will get you. (They ALL look like ex-school principals.)
*  Stay with your chaperone at all times. If Dr. A seems jittery, he has had enough! Just offer him coffee with extra cream.
His motto is: “One cup per kid!”
*  Use clipboards for worksheets. Do not lean or write on exhibit display cases or walls.
*  No food, drink, candy, or gum is allowed inside. Give these items to Dr. A., he knows (burp!) what to do with them.
*  The museum has video surveillance & alarms so don’t be alarmed and return the muskets.
*  They reserve the right to refuse service and rough up those who do not wish to follow the rules of conduct. Now, there are exceptions and one of them is Dr. A. He is a good guy and won’t remember the rules, and he already looks roughed up.

“From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it’s the Hope of Hopes,
it’s the Love of Loves,
it’s the Heart of every man.”
– Bette Midler

     Beauty can liberate your Spirit.

We are never more
than far away.
But wherever we are,
near or far,
we cannot behold
all of God’s Beauty
that surrounds us,
if we look
only with our eyes.

“He has made everything beautiful
in its time.
Also, he has put Eternity
into man’s Heart . . .”
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Beauty
can liberate your Spirit.
Think upon it.
It has happened
many times before.

path-b“You’ll find Beauty
in the simplest things
and in the deepest depths
of complexity.
Beauty exists
for the purpose of
filling your Heart
with Joy.

Beauty’s reason
is pure delight.
Take delight
in Beauty
and it becomes
even MORE Beautiful.

Behold the Beauty
that fills your Life.
It is a Blessing
that has NO
equal.”
Ralph Marston

The Resplendence
of His Love
resides
even in a beautiful drop of rain,
nestled in the arms
of shades of green
on a leaf,
in a tree,
and in the chill
of evening’s breath,
with the warmth
of someone’s arms
around you.

“I wish someone’s arms eilene
were holding me as tight.
But the devil wind blows harder on me,
cold and bare
And someone’s arms won’t be reaching
for there’s nobody there.”
Eilen Jewell

     God’s Beauty surrounds us

The shadow’s call
will fly away
on our journey
to the Light of day,
and night overcome,
to find the Sun
filling the Promise
of a Beautiful
new day,
a Promise
that lives within
everyone.

How much
of Life
is left to live
and Love?

We are here
but a single fleeting moment,
like a drop of dew
at dawn,
never to stay.
Life

cast into the illusion
of a night and a day.

lake-and-sun-set

                    The illusion

Yes,
Life is brief
at best.
But one hundred percent
of the rest of your Life
is left
for you to Love,
to hold in warm embrace,
to share
with God’s Grace.

My wish for you
is that you truly live

every day,
and save
your death,
for the day
you die.

We choose
to truly live

or just exist,
and die a little
each day.

sea-waves-b

Save your death for the day you die.

My Dear Friends,
your mind
is NOT beating
to the rhythm of Life.
It feels not
any emotion.

It is simply
an intermediate
repository
of short term memory,
a biochemical processor
of mere momentary thought,
reflecting upon
Love’s labors lost
and found,
Life Crowned
and made to appear
profound.

Love looks not with the eyes,
but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid 
painted blind.”
William Shakespeare

Long term memory
engrams
reside a trillion fold,
and within every cell
of your very fragile body,
especially
the Heart.
Once in Love,
always in Love.
Once hurt by Love,
the pain is forever
felt.

drop-on-leaf-b

Nestled in the arms of shades of green.

Life
expresses itself
in action
and
emotion.
Life happens
from us,
not to us.

beautiful-rose

         Dwell in the Beauty.

Life
is the Flower,
but Love,
my Dear,
is the Nectar.

“Life
without Love,
is like a tree
without
blossoms or fruit.”
Kahlil Gibran

And what is the message of Love?
  It is
the Happiness and the Joy
YOU
bring to others.

The Beauty and Mystery of Life

You know,
my life is based on a true story,

  and so is yours.
And the truth is:
we have not truly lived
every day.

Life is the Gift
of every single
day.

  If you dwell
in the Beauty and Mystery of Life,
  how could you possibly
be sad,
lonely?

  Love is the aroma of
everything that abides
after a Spring rain,
the softness of the grass
upon which you lie,
the warmth of a sunny day,
the taste of a ripe peach,
whatever God allows
to come your way
.

compassion-b

Love is the boundless Tapestry
of God’s Beautiful Landscape
of Life,
and Loving,
and Living,
and Longing
to be.

Life is truly lived
moment to moment,
smile to smile,
handshake to handshake,
Loving deed
to Loving deed,

to meet someone’s
need.

leaves-b

    What is the message of Love?

My friends,
we need not fear
death.
Life is not really lost
on the day
we die.

It is only lost
while we live:
lost in sorrow,
lost in a sigh,
lost
in a precious moment
that passed you by,
lost in the sadness
that made you cry,
lost in what
your tender Heart felt
but did not say,
lost in never
feeling grateful to God
for the Beautiful Gift
of another new
Day.

white-flower-c

   The shadow’s call will fly away.

Yes,
we die
moment by moment
and not
in a day.

Don’t be living
to die.

Life
is the most exciting
when we Love someone
more than Life,
when we transcend
this moment
of our awareness,
to discover
we are alive inside
the Hopes and Dreams
of someone else,
that Life
is more than living,
it is Dreaming the Dream
that Love
is all there is,
and all
that should ever
be.

mts-and-sun-b

Dreaming the Dream that Love is all there is.

When we awake
inside the Heart of another,
we discover
the reason for being –
the Beauty of Love.

We die
day by day,
moment by moment.

Life is lost
wallowing in the poverty

of selfish actions.
It is lost wasting
the precious Gift
of time.

We destroy the Gift
of our Life

each moment it is not
fully lived.

Now,
let us busy ourselves
Giving,
Sharing,
Smiling,
Laughing,
Daring,

Forgiving,
Loving,
and truly Living.

Give Life a chance.
Take a chance
on Love!

Goodnight.

We die moment by moment and not in a day.

“Live as if you were living
a second time,
and as though you had
acted wrongly

the first time.”
– Viktor E. Frankl
