The Very Foundation Of Our Human Existence / 7 Powerful Mushrooms And Their Healing Benefits / Sept.1 School Starts

  No Person
comes into Being
without the need
for
Love
.
We Human Beings
are here
because of Love.
We are birthed
by Love,
the Love that is
God,
Love
that is within

you and me.

No thing,
however Beautiful or valuable,
can make us feel Truly Loved.
Only the Love
of
another Living Creation
can do that.

“No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
John Donne

poet John DonneOur deeper identity
lies in the fragile and subjective Nature
of the Human Heart.

Our need for Love
lies at the very foundation
of our Human existence.
Love

brings us happiness.
It
is the very essence

of our Nature.

Look to Love,
My Friends,
and you will dream.
and give your Heart
flight on wings.
Love
is the only thing
meant to be.

The Human Heart
is Home to us all.
 If Love in Life
is meant to be,
then the Heart
is the only thing
that will set you
free.

Cherish
what you feel
above all else 
Forests of people
that surround us
day by day,
can dissolve and decay
the fiber of our will,
 our will to
Be.
Our need for Love
is the very essence
of our existence.

We are
the Human of Beings,
filled with Hope for Happiness
and Beautiful Dreams.
Since the Time
of our Sacred Birth,
expressions of Love
have freely flowed
from our Mother,
Nature,
all around us.

  But,
a Child

however old,
cannot survive without the nourishment
of Love.

Your happiness
as a Child, 
depended directly upon
Love.
And,
Child of God,
it still does.

My Dear Friends,
the Love of
God
is always here.
HIS presence
is always within.
The LOVE we share
is the Love
of God.

It is one
and the same.

In this Lower World
Heaven resides
within your precious Heart.
Yes,
God Lives within.
And
His Love,
YOUR Love,
will never die.

There is
something Beautiful and unique
about you.
How fortunate we all are,
that we traveled through our Time
and this Space.
And our trace

in Time
no one can erase
or forget,
if
our Space
was filled with
Love.

Goodnight.

7 Powerful Mushrooms & Their Healing Benefits

Do you have your mushrooms diced through a stirfry or brewed into a superfood latte? There’s a way for everyone to enjoy the incredible health benefits of these fungi. Soils and environments where mushrooms grow are a rich source of providing essential minerals in our diet and the different varieties are packed with widespread and potent healing abilities. Since discovering our friend Nick Polizzi’s new series, Proven, we’ve taken our knowledge of science-backed, plant-based medicine to the next level. Here is just some of what we’ve discovered so far…

1. Reishi – The All-Rounder

If you’re looking for something that embodies the meaning of superfood, reishi is the mushroom that does it all. It has recently been the subject of many studies relating to cancer development and chemotherapy, and immunity benefits. As an adaptogen, reishi can help to alleviate fatigue and regulate stress levels, and there is also some research into how reishi can lower blood sugar and cholesterol while improving liver function.

How To Enjoy: This mushroom is mostly found in powdered or capsule form and can be added to warm teas or smoothies.

2. Shiitake – The Source of Cancer-Fighting Compound Lentinan

Perhaps you’ve had your daily dose of shiitake in a miso soup or wrapped up in a bao bun, but these flavor-rich shrooms have a powerful polysaccharide component – activating our immune system. Lentinan, a compound found in shiitake mushrooms, has been shown to slow down the growth of leukemia cells and stop them from spreading. In some countries, like China and Japan, injectable lentinan is even being prescribed to support the immune system in treatment programs.

How To Enjoy: You can buy shiitake mushrooms fresh or dried from your local produce store, farmer’s market, or Asian supermarket.

3. Oyster – The HIV Fighter

If you’re a first-time, at-home-mushroom farmer, this should be the first variety you reach for. Alongside being alarmingly easy to grow, oyster mushrooms, in all their geometric beauty, have been praised in the scientific community for their role in HIV research. Antiretroviral treatment (ART) in HIV patients has been known to raise both triglyceride and cholesterol levels. The antihyperlipidemic (prevention or counteraction of lipids accumulating in the blood) effects of oyster mushrooms have helped to return the body to homeostasis in both significant animal trials, and small-scale, preliminary human trials.

How To Enjoy: These mushrooms are best enjoyed fresh, and you’ll be able to find them wherever you get your produce.

4. Porcini – The Anti-Inflammatory

Risotto fans rejoice, the beloved porcini is one of the most nutritious mushies you can have on your plate. Alongside being low-calorie but nutritionally-rich and promoting good digestive health, these fungi are powerful when it comes to reducing inflammation – the precursor for disease. Scientists are exploring conditions that the anti-inflammatory compounds may aid, but one 2016 study using mice showed a significant decrease in inflammation markers, especially in asthma response.

How To Enjoy: Porcini mushrooms are most often found dried, but this process helps the fungus retain its benefits.

5. White Button – The Prostate & Breast Cancer Fighters

One of the most commonly found mushrooms (in your local supermarket) conveniently may help to address some of the most commonly found cancers. White button mushrooms may seem humble at first glance but have had powerful impacts – especially in reducing PSA levels in patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer. There have also been trials to suggest that the extract may prevent the recurrence of post-menopausal breast cancer.

How To Enjoy: White buttons are available in your local produce section, from farmers, or wherever you get your produce.

6. Chanterelle – The Metabolism Booster

Just as beautiful as the oyster, chanterelle mushrooms are loved in cooking for how the flavor is retained when sautéed in organic grass-fed butter. As luck would have it, they are also one of the most concentrated sources of B vitamins that nature can provide – including the hard-to-find B12. This water-soluble vitamin group is crucial for converting food into energy and keeping the nervous system thriving, and the high fiber content promotes good digestion.

How To Enjoy: Chanterelle’s can be bought fresh or dried – the latter rehydrates into a lovely tender shroom in broths and soups.

7. Black Truffle – The Feel-Good Response

Truffles have long been a sign of luxury and a refined palette, but there’s a reason we love these hard-to-come-by fungi. Truffles actually contain a ‘bliss molecule’ that is very similar in structure and function to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana. One study has found that anandamide, a compound found in black truffles, triggers a chemical reaction that enhances mood, changes appetite, and reduces feelings of depression and pain of the human brain. But don’t worry, truffles won’t go getting you high!

How To Enjoy: They can be found fresh, dried, or even in an oil form. Either way, they’ll retain the feel-good factor.
