The Memory, the Magic, the Mystery / The Healing Power of Laughter / Sept. 4: Classes resume

                 Endless in its Beauty

At every crossroad
we have a choice.
We travel in one
direction
or another,
never knowing
we are all lost
in the vast void
of timeless space.

Timeless
in the moment,
without form
in the now
to be,
and truly ageless
in our search for Love,
our Love for Life,
and for one another.

“The end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place
for the first time.”
– T. S. Eliot
.

And then one day
we come to see
God,
in His Love
for all there ever was,
and all there is
to ever be.

We each live
for but a moment,
just one brief moment,
the moment
when we realize
the Heart of God
beats within
every lonely
Life
in search of Love,
and longing
to be.

       Dog-leaping Happiness                (Our precious Lila, shortly before she departed us in this Life)

In the Sacred Time
of that moment
lives the memory,
the magic,
the Mystery
of Life
and Living.

“I am almost a hundred years old;
waiting for the end,
and thinking about the beginning.

Meg Rosoff

Meg Rosoff

There are things I need to tell you,
but would you listen if I told you
how quickly time passes?

I know you are unable to imagine this.

Nevertheless,
I can tell you that you will awake someday
to find that your life
has rushed by at a speed
at once impossible and cruel.

The most intense moments
will seem to have occurred only yesterday
and nothing
will have erased the pain and pleasure,

the impossible intensity of Love
and its dog-leaping Happiness,
the bleak blackness of passions unrequited,
or unexpressed, or unresolved.”
Meg Rosoff

                  Endless in its Beauty.

My Dear Friends,
the Love of God
will never let you go.
In His Arms
you can never
be alone.

His Love
bears the Torch
to Light the Way.
It restores
all Life
to another day.

Do not let
your thoughts
close the door
to your precious Heart,
for only it may see
the Rainbow
through a rain of tears
that promises
not in vain,
to return God’s Love
again and again.

                           Endless . . .

From the Sacred ground
blossoms all Life,
endless in its Beauty,
now
and to be.

In Nature,
the end
is the beginning.
And so it is
with us.
With our Mother
Earth,
and God as our
Father,
in mind and in memory,
and in all things that matter,
every moment is
resurrected,
and Life and Love
go on.

In God’s Love
there is no
loss,
only what is
found.

And,
there is rest
for the weary
Soul.

poet Cecelia Weir

Cecelia Weir

“There is Rest For The Weary,
True rest for the Soul.
Troubles, trials and tribulations.
Yes, the agony of time
As Eternity rolls.

Faith is the key.
Prayer is the answer.
And God got it all in control.
If you’ll just go to Him,
And talk as you stroll along,
The relief will begin to surface
And you Heart will be made strong.

Be encouraged in this Life
For there can be Happiness
Right here on Earth.
Despite its pain,
Its misery and its strife.
The good Lord loves you
He sees, He knows, and He cares.
If we but only trust Him

For He is Love..
And He is Light….
He’ll be your Light.
He’ll be your Guide.
For He’s always there
Right by your side.
Live in your Soulful rest.
That the Heartfelt ease
Will give you Life at its best.
Rest, rest, in the Lord.
For He is..
Rest
For The Weary.”
– Cecelia Weir

                     The Sun restores Life.

As our Lives
return a borrowed day,
let us Pray.
The Sun restores Life
in its ray,
and keeps God’s promise
of another new day.

“There is an ecstasy
that marks the summit of life,
and beyond which Life cannot rise.
And such is the paradox of living,
this ecstasy comes when one is most alive,
and it comes as a complete forgetfulness
that one is alive.
This out of all will remain.

They have lived and have tossed:
So much of the game will be gain,
Though the gold of the dice
has been lost.”
– Jack London (Love of Life)
.
The crystal mirror
of our memory,
sometimes with painful longing,
sometimes with delight,
invites us to return,
to never leave again
the Beauty of Love
lost along the way,
never fully knowing
that this moment,
and the last,
are one.

Goodnight.

Laughter Therapy

“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”
E. E. Cummings

What is laughter therapy?

We were born with the gift of laughter. Laughter is a natural medicine. It lifts our spirits and makes us feel happy. Laughter is a contagious emotion. It can bring people together. It can help us feel more alive and empowered.

Laughter therapy, also called humor therapy, is the use of humor to promote overall health and wellness. It aims to use the natural physiological process of laughter to help relieve physical or emotional stresses or discomfort.

Research supporting laughter therapy

A growing body of research supports the theory that laughter may have therapeutic value.

For years, the use of humor has been used in medicine. Surgeons used humor to distract patients from pain as early as the 13th century. Later, in the 20th century, came the scientific study of the effect of humor on physical wellness. Many credit this to Norman Cousins. After years of prolonged pain from a serious illness, Cousins claims to have cured himself with a self-invented regimen of laughter and vitamins. In his 1979 book Anatomy of an Illness, Cousins describes how watching comedic movies helped him recover.

Over the years, researchers have conducted studies to explore the impact of laughter on health. After evaluating participants before and after a humorous event (i.e., a comedy video), studies have revealed that episodes of laughter helped to reduce pain, decrease stress-related hormones and boost the immune system in participants.

Today more than ever before, people are turning to humor for therapy and healing. Medical journals have acknowledged that laughter therapy can help improve quality of life for patients with chronic illnesses. Many hospitals now offer laughter therapy programs as a complementary treatment to illness.

The Healing Power of Laughter

For people living with cancer, it may seem strange to find humor when facing such serious issues. Yet, laughter may be helpful in ways you may not have realized or imagined.

Laughter may help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. Laughter may be a natural diversion. When you laugh, no other thought comes to mind. Laughing may also induce physical changes in the body. After laughing for only a few minutes, you may feel better for hours.

When used in addition to conventional cancer treatments, laughter therapy may help in the overall healing process.

According to some studies, laughter therapy may provide physical benefits, such as helping to:

  • Enhance oxygen intake
  • Stimulate the heart and lungs
  • Relax muscles throughout the body
  • Trigger the release of endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers)
  • Ease digestion/soothe stomach aches
  • Relieve pain
  • Balance blood pressure
  • Improve mental functions (i.e., alertness, memory, creativity)

Laughter therapy may also help to:

  • Improve overall attitude
  • Reduce stress/tension
  • Promote relaxation
  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance quality of life
  • Strengthen social bonds and relationships
  • Produce a general sense of well-being

Laughter therapy at CTCA

At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we fight cancer using an integrative approach. Our Mind-Body Medicine Department offers supportive options, including laughter therapy, to help you cope as you receive conventional cancer treatments.

Laughter therapy strives to help you use and enjoy laughter as a tool for healing. Dr. Katherine Puckett, Chief of the Division of Mind-Body Medicine at CTCA®, first introduced laughter therapy at our Illinois hospital upon a patient’s request.

CTCA offers humor therapy sessions, also known as Laughter Clubs or humor groups, to help cancer patients and their families use and enjoy laughter as a tool for healing. These leader-led groups take patients through a number of laugh-related exercises, including fake laughter and laughter greetings.

Laughter Club is based not on humor or jokes, but rather on laughter as a physical exercise. One group laughter exercise involves patients standing in a circle, with the leader in the middle. Patients put their fingertips on their cheekbones, chest or lower abdomen and make “ha ha” or “hee hee” sounds until they feel vibrations through their bodies. Dr. Puckett says that, during these exercises, it is hard for people not to join in because laughter is so contagious.

According to Dr. Puckett, at the end of a laughter therapy session, patients have said things like “I didn’t even think about cancer during Laughter Club” and “That felt great! Things have been so hard that we hadn’t laughed in months.” Dr. Puckett adds that the 8-year-old daughter of a CTCA patient who attended Laughter Club said afterwards: “I never thought about laughing every day, but now I realize I can. Like even when I don’t feel happy, I can still laugh and feel better.”

“To enable someone to laugh
is much like
giving them
a bouquet of beautiful
Flowers.”
–  Wm. C. Anderson

You Can Only Imagine / They Live for Love / Sept. 4: Classes resume

You can only Imagine
what you will see,
if you open
the Eyes of your
Heart.

Only
the Human Heart
dances
to the rhythm
of another Human
Heart.

Only
the Human Heart
can cry
when another
Human Heart
will die.

Only
the Heart of another
person,
like you and I,
possesses the
Infinite
Love of God.

“What else does this craving,
and this helplessness,
proclaim
but that there was once in man
a True Happiness,
of which all that now remains
is the empty print and trace?
This he tries in vain to fill
with everything around him,
seeking in things that are not there
the help he cannot find in those that are,
though none can help,
since this Infinite abyss can be filled
only
with an Infinite and Immutable Object;
in other words,
by God Himself.”

Blaise Pascal
Pensées VII(425)

The Human Heart
is made
to Love,
and be Loved.

There is
no other reason
that it beats.

Go where your Heart leads you.

Every
precious Earth made Child
is made to be
what they must be,
go where they
must go.

So go
where your Heart
leads you.
And be.

And do so
in the name
of Love,
and you will
come to see,
the Sun rises
in the eyes
of everyone
you meet.
And
it shall never
set.

“Love
is an exclusive reality

of the Human Heart. 
We were Created out of Love,
and we were Created to know Love,
to live by Love,
and to communicate it
in such a powerful way
that it will give Life.
Just as Saint Maximilian Kolbe said,
Only Love Creates.”
Karol Wojtyla
Love and Responsibility

Without proclaiming Love,
will I ever be able
to truly speak?
Will death claim
all,
even the last vestige
of the lingering Love
the lives within,
and longs
to be free?

Rivers running
deep
know how we feel.

What is neglected
becomes invisible.
In the center
of what you are,
is the center
of who you are.
To arrive
at the center
of ourselves,
is the shortest
journey
we shall ever take.
And
the pathway to
our Heart,
leads to
an Infinite Destiny.

Do not neglect
the beautiful destiny
God desires for
YOU.

Every person
longs for a sense of purpose
– destiny: not fate.
God has written this desire
into our Hearts.

“Delight yourself in the Lord
and He shall give you
the desires of your Heart.
Psalm 37:4

   Do so in the name of Love.

A Philosophy
of Love
is a declaration for
truly living.

A great awakening
awaits,
in the silent space
between each beat
of your precious
Heart.

“God is Love.
Whoever lives in Love
lives in God,
and God in him.
1 John 4:8

This sentence brought more understanding,
more sweetness,
more liberation to the Heart
and to the mind,
even in the time it was written,
than the whole World can bring
today.

Yes,
to be truly alive,
Love,
simply Love
everyone,
and every living
thing.

God
is Love.
And Love,
my Precious Friend,
is what YOU
are.
.
“A new command I give
YOU:

Love one another.
As I have Loved you,
so you must Love one another.
John 13:34

My Dear Friends,
the tragedies
that befall us,
are the way
to gain
Wisdom,
not
a guide for
living.

“10 million red blood cells are made every hour
and an equal number destroyed.
If either supply or destruction
becomes out of synchrony by as little as 1%,
before long, your life ends
due to anemia, or polycythemia,
which is to say,
your blood gets so thin
than oxygen transport is insufficient
or it gets so thick
that it can no longer circulate.

Our very existence seems more an affront to a
“Survival of the Fittest” evolutionary scenario.
Man’s unimpressive hair covering
would have restricted early man
to the warmest climes.

Man’s kidneys are relatively poor
water conservers

compared to most animals,
suggesting that man was restricted
to a warm and wet environment.
Our claws are NOT impressive.
Our running speed could hardly serve
as an effective escape mechanism.
Man’s teeth aren’t especially good
at capturing or killing game.

Relative to most animals,
man’s digestive ability is inefficient.
Even man’s greatest ability,
his intellect,
would not have done the earliest man
a great deal of good in the harshest
of survival conditions.

How much good would your intellect do you
in a tropical wilderness
without food, clothing, shelter
and specific training in survival?
If survival of the fittest were the rule
in the earliest days of man,
how did we ever make it?”

Dr. Phillip Bishop

Every precious Life
is a Song.
And
if you listen,
truly listen,
you will know
the rhythm
is the beat
of its Heart.

Yes,
Listen.

God
in His Wisdom,
is calling your name.
A songbird
sings it,
over and over again.

      Let a flower pick you.

Let a flower
pick you.
Give it
to someone
in need of Love.
Do it often,
and come back
to Life,
again
and again.

“Every mystery of life has its origin in the Heart.”           ― Hans Urs von Balthasar, Heart of the World

To look
deeply
into the eyes
of another,
is to hold
a mirror,
and see Worlds
you have never
seen.

In the eyes
of another,
your beautiful Soul
will be revealed.

Goodnight.

                        They live for Love.

Atlas Moths have no mouths
and don’t eat even once
after emerging from their cocoons,
relying on fat storage from their immature stages of life.
Once they emerge from their cocoons,
they have a very short lifespan.

They can never
eat,
so, they live for
Love.

After spending about a month in their cocoons,
Atlas Moths emerge as beautiful creatures.
This state is short lived.
The adult moths typically die within a week or two
of spreading their wings.

                To be truly alive, live for LOVE!

“And now here is my secret, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
a very simple secret:
It is only with the Heart
that one can see rightly; 

what is essential
is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

The Brief Interlace With Destiny / Love-Filled Ways to Live

What is this
Life,
this brief interlace
with destiny?
What is this day,
this short stay
in the bright morning Light,
waiting for shades of dark,
the gray,
the softer forms,
drifting clouds
to shadow our evening
stay?

The isolation
of our Humanity
from Nature
is a principle factor
in the disastrous denial
of our inalienable right
to Happiness.

“On another impoverished evening
so strangely bleak,
the moon weeps
for more burning her Soul must retain.
And she clings like a stem
to the tree of Life
that frozen eyes grasp coiled branches,
weighing down on howls
of Raven’s play.”
Nette Onclaud

Our Joy,
My Dear Friend,
is a Gift to God.
Just as
seeing your Child
Happy,
is a Gift
to you.

We are only
truly alive
while we are
Happy!
At all other times
we are but
perishing.
To be unaware
of this,
is to dwell
in a devastating state
of denial.

Let us
celebrate our
Humanity.

We can unleash
restorative and recuperative
forces
that lie dormant
within our Sacred Lives
and the Lives of
our cherished
Children.

We can do so
quite simply.

The abolition of our
slavery
to ignorance
requires a revolution
in thought.

Take the hand
of your precious Child
and walk out
of your place
of abode.

The wellspring
of our true
adventurous Spirit
lies in knowing
we can believe
in our own
imagination,
and that it is sparked
by our Mother,
Nature.

“Time and space in deadlock
Time unlike the progression of a clock
Time dependent on interpretation
A linear cessation.
Space dependent on mass
Triangulation through impasse
Portals of acquisition
An inner self expedition
From a place in time
No origin or termination of the prime.

To an interval in space
Where cosmos and time interlace
Affirmation of existential quantification
Often lost with one’s interpretation.
Particles floating upon a solar wind
From and to Infinity without an end,
Matter casting shadows in time’s void,
A whirlpool generating ripples
outwardly deployed.”

Deborah Kelley

We are often
intrigued
by the contrast between
what we think
to be real
and the sorrow-ridden
existence
of so many others.
But we fail
to acknowledge
the reality of their
being,
of their
Human Being.

How they experience
the World,
our World,
your World and mine,
requires a direct
confrontation
with the senility of
History.

We must
come to know
that we are one,
con-substantial,
the same,
not only dependent
upon one another,
the same.

  Walk out of your place.

The pain
of our existence
is not always
laid out for others
to see.

At the edge
of Life,
we seek a Spiritual
Dimension,
where the ground
of our existence
is shaking the Pillars
of our Foundations.

The Story of Life
is often written
with a pencil
that was never
sharpened,
and often,
never penned at all.

Only
in the service of
each other
are we truly
sharp,
do we get
the point.

Reality kills,
but it also
heals.
Not only
in recognizing,
but in the Heart
of the recognizer.

A Palace,
a real Palace,
does not exist
as abstract art
thrown upon the canvass
of the ground.
It is built
from many splendored
thoughts and deeds.
It is constructed
by the Heart.
It does not
deteriorate with time,
fall to the ground
and turn into
dust.
A real Palace
is built
by the Human Heart.
It is Home to many,
and lasts
forever.

Mankind
has learned the lore,
folk and more,
the dare, the scare,
and worse,
to better beware.
Canyons
are carved into Life
from Rivers
of deep regret.

But we are
Creation Entire,
the seeds of Thoughts
planted by
God,
slow moving
Dreams,
many splendored
Dimensions of
Love
in form of Beings.

So when the Night
is no longer yours
alone,
when tomorrow
begins with the Sun
rising in your
Song,
when
you feel
you can now
Love many others,
hold on,
a total
eclipse of the Heart
by the Light
of God’s Love,
will envelope you.

In Prayer
you will find,
you are found,
and no longer
in need
of anything,
but His Love.

Love
is beside us,
inside of us,
longing
to be.

Love
is what you are,
what you long
to be.

Close your
eyes
that you may see.
God
truly Loves you.

Wildflower
that you are,
and will always
be,
bask in the
Sun,
and let it
be.

Goodnight.

Love-Filled Ways to Live From Your Heart

Living from the heart is incredibly relaxing. You stop using your mind to analyze, plan, organize, and figure everything out. What a relief! As you let go of all of that mind activity, you are able to relax into presence, where there is no trouble and no resistance.

When you live from the heart, you begin to touch into the universal experience of love. Love is the source of everything – the fabric which makes up our very existence.

Sure, there are many waves in the ocean, but they all are made up of the same thing. Play with letting go of your individual self and live from the eternal ocean of love.

  1. Ask, “What would love do?” In any situation, look for the response that is peaceful and free of stress. Put aside your fears and conditioned habits, and let love guide you.
  2. Let love pervade every conversation. Can you not take your relationships for granted and be more openly loving? Even when things get tense, drop away from your emotional reaction and melt back into love.
  3. Treat yourself like gold. When it comes to love, you are included, too. Tune into what you need and let yourself have it. Live as stress-free a life as possible.
  4. Be here now. Spinning stories in your mind about things that have happened in the past and what might happen in the future take you away from what is here right now. When you are stuck in your mind, it is impossible to be fully in touch with the love that is here. Let your attention explore this very moment. Open your senses, open your heart, and live from there.
  5. Become aware of the oneness of love. Consider this: what is looking out of your eyes is the same as what is looking out of everyone else’s eyes. When you meet an “other,” you are actually meeting the essence of yourself. When you understand this, love is impossible to deny. Check it out with the next person you speak to.
  6. Don’t obsessively plan. In fact, only plan when absolutely necessary. Planning is in the mind, and when you realize how little planning you actually need, there is space to recognize that you are alive right now. And in that aliveness, let your heart glow.
  7. Make hard choices. When you live from the heart, you begin to be very honest with yourself. You may realize that certain situations or people aren’t working for you. Likewise, you will see your own tendencies that don’t serve. Sometimes, the most loving response you can make is a kind but firm, “No.”
  8. Honor your personality quirks. A funny thing happens when you live from the heart. As conditioning falls away, your natural gifts and inclinations have space to be expressed. Let your creativity flow in whatever way it wants to. Go where you are guided, learn what you want to learn, enjoy yourself in all your activities.
  9. Bring boundless acceptance to your moment-to-moment experience. Be a kind host to all the emotions and reactions that visit you. The more you resist, the more trouble you will have. Say, “Hello” and let it be.
  10. Get to know the unconditioned, totally free you. When you relax away from all your conditioned habits, you will discover formless space that is clear, open, and inherently loving. Begin to become familiar with this space, as it is the essence of you. Listen, let it guide you. Live here.

In any moment you have a choice – the head or the heart, inauthenticity or truth, distraction or love. Play around with living more in your heart. Don’t be shy. Let love in, and life’s greatest treasures will be revealed.

The Spiritual Nature of Reality Through the Lens of Love / Essential Reasons to Eat Organic Food / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Rehearsal)

Through the Lens of Love
we can begin
to truly Live.

           The Spiritual Nature of Reality.

Startling revelations
show our World
as deeply mysterious and very strange,
far stranger
than we can ever
know.

“Not only is the Universe
stranger

than we imagine,
it is stranger
than we can
imagine.”

Sir Arthur Eddington
English astronomer (1882 – 1944)

And thus,
we find our Humanity
at the very Heart

of a Cosmic riddle.

My Dear Friends,
those who seek
to understand

the Spiritual qualities
of Life,

are freed from much
of the misery

other people
live with.

             There is Beauty in Tomorrow.

We can
defy
the prevailing pessimism
of our time

and come to see the World
with a vast Cosmic view,
opening up the Spiritual Wisdom
of the ages,
permitting the Love of God
to enter into our lives,

as we allow ourselves
to rejoice
in the God given
Power of Thought
itself.

Enlarging our perspectives
and searching
for answers to questions
known and new,
can renew our Faith
in fundamental ways
and open up our awareness
to the Spiritual Nature
of Reality.

                The Spiritual Wisdom of the ages.

We are capable
of exploring
the Knowledge of the Ages
in such a manner
that we see Truth
through another lens,
the very powerful lens
of God’s Vibrant and Eternal
Love.

In such Love,
there is

so much more
to see,
than we can ever
envision,
so much more
to know
than we shall
ever be aware of.
With His Love
to guide me,
there is

so much more
to me,
than I imagined
I could ever

be.

                  There is Beauty in Believing.

The clarity 
of thought imparted
by deep reflection
about the Love
of God,
will come alive
as you journey
down the pathway
of Light
and Hope.

There are
Schools of Thought
that lead much of Mankind
to new
Thresholds of Understanding.

In your Mind’s Eye
flow Rivers of reasons
to wonder
why
we can never deny
Human Consciousness
is capable of
Infinite Awareness.
And that Awareness
is one of knowing
there is Beauty in Believing:
Believing in Yourself,
Believing in Tomorrow,
and in the Sacred Promises made
in the Holy Word
of God.

                      There is Beauty.

Paradise
is the place
where God patiently waits
for your restless
Heart
to beat in Time
with His.

The messages we find
in the Beautiful Music of our Lives
and in the Holy Bible
make us aware
of what is missing in Life.
They reveal the God who gives us Life,
the God who waits patiently for us.

Sometimes
we find ourselves
running from God,
like a Child who fears being in trouble
or running to God
like a Child running into the arms
of a Loving parent.
But,
either way,
God waits for us.

For every moment
of doubt
that passes by,
the further away
from Home
you feel.

Goodnight.

Permitting the Love of God to enter into our lives.

17 Essential Reasons to Eat Organic Food
click here to read more

by

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 17 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.

4 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.

The Power of Your Love / Is Death an Illusion? / Friday: Japanese and Rose Gardens

Organic
Food for Thought.

There comes a point
in Space and Time,
in a place
that is mine,
where Love
merges with
Reality,
where YOU
are aligned with
the Perfection of
Being.

When
your affection for another
is deep enough,
and your devotion
Treasured
beyond Belief,
the abiding power of your Love
can change
the very nature
of Reality,
and YOU.

                A Pathway is illumined.

Yes,
a profound outpouring
of Love has,
on many occasions,
resulted in Miraculous events
and inexplicable results.

One such Miracle
happens
when two people
fall deeply in
Love,
and Miracle of Miracles:
A Child in Born.

We may not
think of birth
as Miraculous,
but it is widely recognized
as such.

      Miracle of Miracles

When
two people
experience such Love,
a Pathway is illumined
to the Transcendence
of all perception and reason
and even Time itself.

And
the door to this Pathway
may be opened,
and closed,
by YOUR
Heart.

Love
comes
from
within.

            A reflection of God’s desire.

The realm
of Timeless Love
is evidenced by
YOU.
Your Life
is the result
of countless and timeless
phases
of Love’s full Moon,
of God’s strong desire
for Mankind
to march forward
and carry on.

The Power of Love
is the power
over Death.

Love’s
Eternal Quest
to live in a perpetual
state of motion
is indeed
the most powerful thing
in the Universe.

Infinity of Life,
the longing
for Tomorrow,
surpasses all expressions
and all possessions
sheltered in our
desires,
or dreamt of
in our Dreams.

 “Love knows no limit
to its endurance,
no end to its Trust,
no fading of its Hope;
it can outlast anything.
It is, in fact,
the one thing
that still stands
when all else
has fallen.”
1 Corinthians 13 7-8

Our
felt Love
is mirrored in,
and emanates from,
and through
every
act of Compassion,
every
fulfillment of desire
to help others:
the homeless, the sick,
the destitute,
those who feel
lost
and without the Love
needed
to continue Life.
click here to see WHY your Love is so needed

“Death
leaves a heartache
no one can heal,
Love
leaves a memory
not one can
steal.”
Beethoven

Each act of Caring
is a reflection
of God’s desire
to sustain Life,
to extend His Compassion
and share His
Love.

Let us not
simply Love
those around us.
Give them
permission
to Love.

For they may not
truly understand
how much
Life is in Love
with them.
They may
never know
that Life
is Love,
that Love
is the only reason
to live,
and that Love
is the reason
they are
alive.

My Dear Friends,
God is Love,
and so are
YOU.

“I Love thee with a Love
I seemed to lose with my lost Saints,
I Love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my Life!
and, if God choose,
I shall but Love thee better
after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Love begins
in a moment
and ends
in Eternity.
The Love you share
today
can mirror
the Eternal Love
of God.

Life can leave you
with an all-encompassing sense
of Love,
with a true connection
with everything, everywhere.

We exist
in a continuous and infinite
field of inseparability,
and in constant relationship
with everything.

Our mysterious existence
gives rise to a feeling
of Loving curiosity.
Our desire to become one
with this Mystery
is a Spiritual Love
emanating from a Heartfelt need
to unify
all of Life.

Every thought
we have ever had,
in the seeming privacy
of our own mind,
has been shaped in relationship
with the thoughts
of everyone we have ever known,
and everyone they have ever known,
and on and on and on
it goes.

What we think
is influenced by other people,
and by every experience
we have ever had,
with every living
and every non-living thing
on this precious
Earth,
and by God
in Heaven Above.

Nothing
is separate
from anything else.

We are one.

Humanity
is in the process
of trans-formative growth
that can lead us
to deep self-reflection.
Our Humanity
can
grow and Blossom
in profound and empowering
ways.

Joao de Deus (John of God)

“We have all been polished
again and again
by the impact of other people’s
rough edges
colliding with our own,
wearing down the irregularities
of our emotional
and mental surfaces, our egos,
hitting our weak points
and causing the occasional fracture.
Through this process,
humanity collectively moves
blow by blow,
back toward our awareness
of the deeper and gem-like perfection
within each of us.”

“The Book of Miracles: The Healing Work of Joao de Deus”
by Josie RavenWing

There are
Infinite ways
to discover True Love,
and Infinite days
for Love
to last.

Yes,
True Love
is destined to last
until we realize,
there is no end
of Time,
for Time
does not exist.
But Love
does.

Love
is the only thing
that truly does
exist.

Goodnight.

                   Love truly does exist.

“Love is the only bow of life’s dark cloud.
It is the Morning and Evening Star.
It shines upon the cradle of the babe,
and sheds its radiance upon the quiet tomb.
It is the Mother of Art,
inspirer of poet, patriot, and philosopher.
It is the air and light of every heart,
builder of every home,
kinder of every fire on every hearth.
It was the first dream of immortality.
It fills the world with melody.
Love is the magician,
the enchanter that changes worthless things to Joy,
and makes right royal Kings of common clay.”
Robert Green Ingersol

Is Death an Illusion?
Evidence Suggests Death
Isn’t the End.

Life is an adventure
that transcends our ordinary
linear way of thinking.

By Robert Lanza M.D.

Lanza Named One of TIME Magazines 100 Most Influential People in the WorldDr. Robert Lanza selected for the 2014 TIME 100 list of the hundred most influential people in the world, along with Pope Francis, Robert Redford, and other artists, pioneers, leaders, titans and icons.
.

U.S. News & World Report Cover Story

“…his mentors described him [Lanza] as a “genius,”
a “renegade” thinker, even likening him to Einstein.”
.

 After the death of his old friend, Albert Einstein said “Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me.
That means nothing.  People like us – know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

Robert Lanza M.D.

New evidence continues to suggest that Einstein was right, death is an illusion.

Our classical way of thinking is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence. But a long list of experiments shows just the opposite. We think life is just the activity of carbon and an admixture of molecules: we live awhile and then rot into the ground.

We believe in death because we’ve been taught we die. Also, of course, because we associate ourselves with our body and we know bodies die. End of story.  But biocentrisma new theory of everything, tells us death may not be the terminal event we think.  Amazingly, if you add life and consciousness to the equation, you can explain some of the biggest puzzles of science. For instance, it becomes clear why space and time – and even the properties of matter itself – depend on the observer. It also becomes clear why the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be exquisitely fine-tuned for the existence of life.

Until we recognize the Universe in our heads, attempts to understand reality will remain a road to nowhere.

Lanza Named One of the Top 50 “World Thinkers”

Lanza Featured in Fortune MagazineDr. Lanza selected as one of Prospect Magazine’s “World Thinkers 2015.” The thinkers were chosen for “engaging in original and profound ways with the central questions of the world today.
.

In truth, you can’t see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain. Your eyes are not portals to the world. Everything you see and experience right now‚ even your body, is a whirl of information occurring in your mind. According to biocentrism, space and time aren’t the hard, cold objects we think. Wave your hand through the air – if you take everything away, what’s left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together.

Life is an adventure that transcends our ordinary linear way of thinking. When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix. Life has a non-linear dimensionality;
it’s like a perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse.

“The influences of the senses,” said Ralph Waldo Emerson “has in most men overpowered the mind to the degree that the walls of space and time have come to look solid, real and insurmountable; and to speak with levity of these limits in the world is the sign of insanity.

Why You Will Always Exist

Photo of a Countryside Cemetery

  There is no death. Only the beginning.                   – Robert Lanza

 You’ve laughed and cried. And you may even fall in love and grow old with someone, only to be ripped apart in the end by death and disease. The universe leaves you dead or grieving with a hole in you as big as infinity.

Can life really be reduced to the laws of physics, or are we part of something more noble and triumphant?

Are we part of a depraved cosmic joke, the product of a vast and ruthless Universe?

Through the eyes of science, you’re a speck of junk spinning around the core of the Milky Way galaxy, which itself is whirling through the unfathomable blackness of space. It’s all in the equations, you know. Nothing to get philosophical about. Nobel physicist Steven Weinberg summed it up best:

The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little bit above the level of a farce and gives it some of the grace of a tragedy.

The River of Life / Supplements for Diabetes / WEDNESDAY trip: Modern Art Museum

 

The River of Life
swiftly flows and evermore
down a slope
that is steep
and seldom yielding
to our desires.
But Blessings deep
are carved into the marrow
of tomorrow.

Thus
we are molded
into that which
survives
and Time will keep.

      Carved into the marrow of tomorrow.

As we borrow Today
from our children,
beautiful moments are forged
into Wonder,
and then
we sleep.

And when
you are wide awake
in the middle of a Dream,
when the Spirit emerges
from the physical Being,
to freely roam
Ethereal space,
the rhythm of Life
is locked in place
with Cosmic Time
that leaves no
trace.

Yes,
when we are
far, far away
in Dreams
that tell us who we really are,
we see
not just the the poetic imagination,
but the Spiritual,
not only the day
in night,
but what may be,
second sight.

The cycle of Dreams
night after night,
like the breathing
of the Oceans,
the swelling of the
Tides,
is much like
our emotions,
and the Seasons
of the Heart.

Do not
depart
from your precious
Dreams.

Goodnight.

Herbs and Supplements for Diabetes

Medically reviewed by
George Krucik, MD, MBA

Using Supplements for Diabetes Treatment
It is always best to let the foods you eat provide your vitamins and minerals. However, more and more people are turning to alternative medicines and supplements. In fact, according to the American Diabetes Association, diabetics are more likely to use supplements than those without the disease.

Supplements should not be used to replace standard diabetes treatment. Doing so can put your health at risk.

It is important to talk to your doctor before using any supplements. Some of these products can interfere with other treatments and medications. Just because a product is natural does not mean it is safe to use.

A number of supplements have shown promise as diabetes treatments. These include the following:
Cinnamon
Chinese medicine has been using cinnamon for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. It has been the subject of numerous studies to determine its effect on blood glucose levels. A 2011 study has shown that cinnamon, in whole form or extract, helps lower fasting blood glucose levels. More studies are being done, but cinnamon is showing promise for helping to treat diabetes.

Chromium
Chromium is an essential trace element. It is used in the metabolism of carbohydrates. However, research on the use of chromium for diabetes treatment is mixed. Low doses are safe for most people, but there is a risk that chromium could make blood sugar go too low. High doses also have the potential to cause kidney damage.

Vitamin B-1
Vitamin B-1 is also known as thiamine. Many people with diabetes are thiamine deficient. This may contribute to some diabetes complications. Low thiamine has been linked to heart disease and blood vessel damage.

Thiamine is water-soluble. It has difficulty getting into the cells where it’s needed. However, benfotiamine, a supplemental form of thiamine, is lipid-soluble. It more easily penetrates cell membranes. Some research suggests that benfotiamine can prevent diabetic complications. However, other studies have not shown any positive effects.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant.
Some studies suggest it may:
• reduce oxidative stress
• lower fasting blood sugar levels
• decrease insulin resistance
However, more research is needed. Furthermore, ALA needs to be taken with caution, as it has the potential to lower
blood sugar levels to dangerous levels.

Bitter Melon
Bitter melon is used to treat diabetes-related conditions in countries like Asia, South America, and others. There is a lot of data on its effectiveness as a treatment for diabetes in animal and lab studies.
However, there is limited human data on bitter melon. There are not enough clinical studies on human. The human studies currently available are not of high quality.

Green Tea
Green tea contains polyphenols, which are antioxidants.
The main antioxidant in green tea is known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Laboratory studies have suggested that EGCG may have numerous health benefits including:
• lower cardiovascular disease risk
• prevention of type 2 diabetes
• improved glucose control
better insulin activity
Studies on diabetic patients have not shown health benefits. However, green tea is generally considered safe.

Resveratrol
Resveratrol is a chemical found in wine and grapes. In animal models, it helps prevent high blood sugar. Animal studies have also shown that it can reduce oxidative stress. However, human data is limited. It is too soon to know if supplementation helps with diabetes.

Magnesium
Magnesium is an essential nutrient. It helps regulate blood pressure. It also regulates insulin sensitivity. Supplemental magnesium may improve insulin sensitivity in diabetics.
A high magnesium diet may also reduce the risk of diabetes. Researchers have found a link between higher magnesium intake, lower rates of insulin resistance, and diabetes.

OUR Children Are Dying From ADHD Drugs! WAKE UP! / Coffee May Stave Off Depression / Good Friday and Easter Monday are Holidays

 

                       Come on Folks!  Wake UP!

OUR Children are dying
from ADHD Drugs!

Sadly,
the deaths of many children
has remained suppressed
for so long because there is
a tremendous amount of
money and profit at $take.

Between 1990 and 2000 there were 186 deaths
from methylphenidate (Ritalin)
reported to the FDA MedWatch program,
a voluntary reporting scheme,
the numbers of which represent
no more than 10 to 20%
of the actual incidence.

We need to expose
the health risks, dangers, deaths
and suicides
that are a direct result
of administering Ritalin
and other psychiatric drugs to children.
read more

Does Ritalin Increase Cancer Risk in Children?

Research is raising concerns about the drug Ritalin,
suggesting that children who take it
may have an increased risk of
cancer
.

Ten year old Harry Hucknall’s death resulted from two ‘mind-altering’ drugs that had been prescribed  by a psychiatrist. read  more

ALL of the children
included in a University of Texas study experienced
an increase in chromosome abnormalities
just three months after starting Ritalin.

Chromosome damage has been linked
to heightened cancer risk
and to other health problems.

Lead researcher Randa A. El-Zein, MD, PhD, and colleagues
found a THREEFOLD increase
in the level of chromosomal damage
in the samples taken after the children
were started on Ritalin.
read more

Several animal studies have also suggested
a link between Ritalin use
and cancer.

Chemicals for ADD and ADHD?

Something is wrong,
but not with your precious child.

God, in His Wisdom,
has never created a child
He did not deeply Love.
The concern you express for your child
is part of that abiding Love.

Matthew was a teenager
who had been on Ritalin for seven years.
His death certificate reads:
“Death caused from long-term use
of methylphenidate (Ritalin).”
read more

Please consult with your physician
and ask him or her to remove your child
from all the harmful chemicals
that will create more and more issues
as time passes.
The research that is readily available
has led to the conclusion
that no child should be subjected
to the long term effects

of these substances.
And very few longitudinal studies
have been conducted.

I do NOT wonder
Why $ $ $ $.

Another boy named Matthew had been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. And like an estimated 2.5 million other children in the United States, he was taking medication for the condition.

Matthew took his pill that morning with a glass of water. He was later found after he had collapsed on the bathroom floor.  read more

Please
type the name of your child’s prescription(s)
combined with two more words,
“________   and cancer“,
and read the results.
Yes,
you will be horrified.

The Drug Enforcement Administration
had classified Methylphenidate (Ritalin)
as a Schedule II drug,
comparable to Cocaine.

Methylphenidate is also one of the top ten
abused prescription drugs.
Ritalin causes constriction of veins and arteries,
causing the heart to work overtime
and inevitably leading to damage
to the organ itself.

Eleven year old Stephanie Hall’s teacher suggested that she be tested for ADD. Stephanie’s Death was caused From Ritalin used to treat ADHD.  read more

It is a violation of parent’s rights
when they are not told of the unscientific nature
of so-called disorders such as ADHD
or the risks of the treatments
involving drugs like Ritalin.

Did you know that by labeling your child
with ADHD,
you are actually labeling them
with a mental illness?

Did you know that a child
taking psycho-tropic, psycho-stimulant drugs
like Ritalin after the age of 12
is ineligible for military service?

   Why?
   What do they know
that we do not know?

Did you know that the subjective checklists
that are being used as criteria for diagnosis
are very similar to the checklists used to determine
Gifted and Talented Children?

These two checklists are almost
identical.

Ten year-old Shaina Dunkle was diagnosed with ADHD by her school psychologist. Her death was caused from Desipramine used to treat ADHD.

My Dear Friends,
bright children are not passive players
in the game of Life.
They are active.
Such activity is a NATURAL by-product
of high intelligence.

Get on your knees
and Thank God
you have NORMAL, intelligent
and yes, ACTIVE children.
What a Blessing!

Did you know that there are studies
such as the Berkeley Study
that contend that Ritalin and other stimulants
further raise the risk of drug abuse?
Ritalin makes the brain more susceptible
to the addictive power of cocaine
and doubles the risk of abuse.

         Come on Folks!
        Wake UP!

What needs to change
is the academic environment.
It needs to allow for normal active children.

Hyperactive children simply
do not exist.

Most boys are highly active
and for a good reason.
It relates to the survival of the species.
Think about it!

And common LOGIC dictates what is so apparent:
WE ARE A PART OF NATURE
NOT APART FROM NATURE.

Your child is acting normal!
Put him or her outside in the fresh air
with God’s bountiful sunshine
and allow for activity.

Take advantage of the high activity level
and enroll your child in a great sports program.
Wear him or her out on the soccer field
or playing a ball game like baseball
or camping out with a Scout Troop, etc., etc. etc.
Instead of drugging up your kid,
set him up for recognition for his athletic ability.
Take advantage of the GIFT
of being a healthy active HUMAN being.

Don’t bury your loved one in an early grave
because you lack the courage
to say NO!

Don’t just say it,
shout  NO”

There is Beauty in Courage.
There is no need to water the flowers
you place on the grave of your precious child
with your tears.
Tears should be shed only for
joy.

INVITE the uninformed person
who insisted your child become a lab rat
to take the drug instead.
Yes, insist they go on the drug first.
Look into their horrified eyes when they scream,
“What?”

bix 2

If YOU are not a strong advocate for your child, NO ONE WILL BE. That is why God gave you HIS Child – to shelter the deeply loved from the storms of Life, to protect, to Honor, to serve, and LOVE above all things on this Earth.

And
Love my Friend,
is Courage.

Please take the time to research these substances and have your precious son or daughter removed from them. I would also change my physician. If he or she has taken the convenient and profitable way to medically treat your family, then he or she needs to be removed from service.

Obviously,
the good Doctor has not researched the topic
to the degree enough to reach a compassionate,
reliably informed and reasonable conclusion.

The qualifications of physicians also follow,
like everything else in life,
the bell-shaped curve of probability.
Some are at the lower end of expectations
relative to the awareness of what they do.
Some will write a prescription for anything.
Just be sure to pay the bill
on your way out.

Motor vehicle accidents
claimed 40,100 deaths in 2017,
almost the same as in 2016 when 40,327
were reported.
But, in recent years,
there has been an annual average
of about 400,000 drug related deaths
and serious injuries in a hospital
that could have been prevented (those we know about).

Research estimates up to 440,000 Americans
are dying annually from preventable hospital errors.
This puts medical errors as the
third leading cause of death
in the United States.
read more

Which leads me to conclude
that the most dangerous place in this country
is not on America’s highways,
but in the doctor’s waiting room.

Like Jesus said,
“Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
Some truly do not know.

Your
instinctive and abiding Love for your child
allows for insight into what is happening.
Please follow your instincts.
God has given them to you for a reason.
And that reason always points
to His abundant Love for you
and your child.

Your child is perfection,
as are all of God’s children.

Please remove your children from all substances
that tarnish the Will of God.
What is truly needed
is the abundant Love of our Lord
that flows through you.

That is all your children
will ever need.

Goodnight.

A study of some 50,000 female nurses in the US
over a period of ten years suggests that women
who drank 2 or 3 cups of coffee a day
reduced their risk of depression by 15%
compared with those who drank one cup or less.
And those who drank four cups or more
had a 20% risk reduction.
