Our Unfolding Reality / Reasons to Eat Organic Food / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Play Preparation)

                        A richer view.

Each observation in our Life
is an opportunity to grow
in many ways,
and especially
Spiritually.

In a Universe
that is so alive,
and filled with
Beauty,
we can be consciously,
and emotionally,
moved
to act in a Loving
manner,
to change and position
our precious Lives,
our future
and our World.

Wandering Rainbows
leave a bit of color
in every Heart
they
own.

As we reflect
upon such abundant Beauty,
let us always know
that we can be likened
to a Flower
in the field,
that the wind
passes over,
and the Sun
showers with Love.
Like the Breath
of Man
in greeting each other
in dimensions gentle
and natural,
the where and when
of which we become
caring
and compassionate.

Our Love
for one another
has something Mystical
about it.
Sometimes,
it is hard
to comprehend,
as the evidence avails
and our ego
prevails.

The paradox
of free will
is sweeping us
into transcendence
of a kind,
as space and time
reflect the illusions
of this finite phase
of our Earthly
existence.

As you greet
and say goodbye
to our Parental Star,
and to
the wonder of
who we are,
let
your fascination
turn to
Love.

My Dear Friends,
we are far greater
than our thoughts,
much more than our
physical being.
We are part
of a larger Whole,
a collective
Earthly existence,
a Spiritual Being
living in a
Spiritual Universe.

A richer view
of our Life on Earth
is possible.
By more fully realizing
we actively create
the events
in our Life,
our unfolding reality
comes into view
and the future
comes into being.

Reality
is merely an outward expression
of what we have chosen
to create
and to accept.

Our imagination
is far more valuable than reality.
Our imagination
creates the future.
When we remain immersed
in what is always
directly in front of us at all times,
we continually create
the same experiences
over and over again.

“Imagination is everything.
It is the preview for Life’s
coming attractions.”
Albert Einstein

If we venture forth
into our imagination
and focus on a new reality
we want to experience,
a mysterious energy
is set into motion
and magnificent changes
will occur.

By recognizing
our power of
choice,
we can literally
change the present,
and create
the future.

Solutions
to our problems today,
require us
to move forward
into the future.
We can do so
by asking ourselves:
“Describe
what your Life
will be like
in five or ten or twenty
years?”

              With God by our side.

If
we make no changes,
what will it be like?

Now,
we can come
to realize,
that the future can
dictate the present.
It is your
future self
that can guide you,
and empower you
to move forward.

Our road
to a better tomorrow
is not really a road
at all.
It is an easy
pathway,
through a conscious effort
to make different
choices
with the guidance
of our future,
Loving
Self.

To walk
down the pathway of Living,
with God
by our side,
will teach us
the fundamental lessons
of Love, Forgiveness, Compassion
and Mercy.
It is
far, far easier
than the road of Life,
which can be devastating
to the Human
who suffers it.

Our happiness in Life
is measured
by the choices we make
in every moment.
And the pathway
to success
is through unconditional
LOVE,
for our fellow
Human Beings,
and for ourselves.

We have
the free will
to Love others,
and accept
the Love of
God.

It is not
just for this moment
that we live.
Our Ship of Life
lies rigged and ready
in the harbor.
And somewhere beyond
the horizon,
the Beauty
of God’s Love
waits patiently.

Please know
that God Loves
You,
no matter what.

The Binding Force
of our Universe,
is
the binding force
of Love.

Goodnight.

Reasons to Eat Organic Food

Organic food was the only option for thousands of years.  Now, with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and genetically-modified foods, organic is still the best option.  Here are reasons to eat organic food:

1.  Genetically-modified foods were unleashed on the environment and the public by corporations like Monsanto without prior testing to determine their safety.  In other words, eating genetically-modified foods (which most people in in large amounts) is participating in a long-term, uncontrolled experiment. Choose organic to avoid participating in this experiment.

2.  More and more research is coming in about the health threat of genetically-modified food.  The results range from intestinal damage, allergies, liver or pancreatic problems, testicular cellular changes, tumors, and even death in the experimental animals. For more information, read the excellent books by Jeffrey M. Smith Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette. I’ll discuss more of the problems linked with GMOs in upcoming blogs. Eating third-party certified organic foods or those that are guaranteed to be grown from organic seed helps protect you from the health consequences of GMOs.

Potential Health Risks of Eating GMO Foods

3.  Fruits and vegetables are real food, not pesticide factories. Eighteen percent of all genetically-modified seeds (and therefore foods that grow from them) are engineered to produce their own pesticides.  Research shows that these seeds continue producing pesticides inside your body once you’ve eaten the food grown from them! Foods that are actually pesticide factories…no thanks.

4.  They’re free of neurotoxins – toxins that are damaging to brain and nerve cells. A commonly-used class of pesticides called organophosphates was originally developed as a toxic nerve agent during World War I. When there was no longer a need for them in warfare, industry adapted them to kill pests on foods. Many pesticides are still considered neurotoxins.  Learn more about pesticides in The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox Plan.

5.  They’re supportive of growing children’s brains and bodies.  Children’s growing brains and bodies are far more susceptible to toxins than adults.  Choosing organic helps feed their bodies without the exposure to pesticides and genetically-modified organisms, both of which have a relatively short history of use (and therefore safety).

6.  In study after study, research from independent organizations consistently shows organic food is higher in nutrients than traditional foods.  Research shows that organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, and the minerals calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium. (For more information, check out The Life Force Diet).

Keep reading to learn how organic food is better for the environment…

7.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that pesticides pollute the primary drinking source for half the American population. Organic farming is the best solution to the problem. Buying organic helps reduce pollution in our drinking water.

8.  Organic food is earth-supportive (when big business keeps their hands out of it). Organic food production has been around for thousands of years and is the sustainable choice for the future.  Compare that to modern agricultural practices that are destructive of the environment through widespread use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers and have resulted in drastic environmental damage in many parts of the world.

9.  Organic food choices grown on small-scale organic farms help ensure independent family farmers can create a livelihood. Consider it the domestic version of fair trade.

10. Most organic food simply tastes better than the pesticide-grown counterparts.

11. Organic food is not exposed to gas-ripening like some non-organic fruits and vegetables (like bananas).

12.  Organic farms are safer for farm workers. Research at the Harvard School of Public Health found a 70% increase in Parkinson’s disease among people exposed to pesticides. Choosing organic foods means that more people will be able to work on farms without incurring the higher potential health risk of Parkinson’s or other illnesses.

13.  Organic food supports wildlife habitats. Even with commonly used amounts of pesticides, wildlife is being harmed by exposure to pesticides.

14.  Eating organic may reduce your cancer risk.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides, and 30% of insecticides potentially cancer-causing.  It is reasonable to think that the rapidly increasing rates of cancer are at least partly linked to the use of these carcinogenic pesticides.

15.  Choosing organic meat lessens your exposure to antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and drugs that find their way into the animals and ultimately into you.

16.  Organic food is tried and tested. By some estimates genetically-modified food makes up 80% of the average person’s food consumption. Genetic modification of food is still experimental. Avoid being part of this wide scale and uncontrolled experiment.

17.  Organic food supports greater biodiversity.  Diversity is fundamental to life on this planet. Genetically-modified and non-organic food is focused on high yield monoculture and is destroying biodiversity.
