Ebb and Flow With The Ocean Of Life / Timetable For A Vaccine / School Calendar 2020-21

There is no word
by which our Life on Earth
is more often described,
than by that of a
Journey.

Our passage through this Life
is brief,
at best.

It may be compared
to a Flower,
which today blossoms in a field,
and tomorrow
is withered and gone.

Welcome to our
Journey.

                                     We Journey on.

 A web of many problems and worries
is woven into our Journey.
But in our very Human Hearts,
Hope whispers
a sigh of relief,
if we but
listen.

Under Heaven,
by the Grace of God,
we Journey on,
and on our road of Life
we may wander far.

And wonder why
we so often let Love depart,
when it
has a place
in the Human Heart.

If
we but look to Love,

we will Dream,
and give Life
Golden Wings.
Life is meant to be,
with the Heart
set free,
to Hope
and Love,
and Dream.

My Dear Friends,
Love is meant to be.
Hope finds a Home
when the Heart is liberated
by knowledge
and set free

Let your Love
soar in the Heavens above,
above the Earthly wants and needs,
above the poverty
of passions
we only perceive.

Life
is meant to be.
And only Love
will give it wings.
Only Love
will fulfill our Dreams.
Life,
with Love,
was meant to be.

 The ebb and the flow
of the Ocean tides,
are like the Breath
of our Being.

Yes,
the Tides ebb and flow inward and out
in the motion of waves
of pure energy set free.
And so too
do the cycles of our experiences
in Life.

All Life
is like the rhythmical pattern
of coming and going,
growth and regrowth,
Birth and rebirth. 

This rolling Tide
also reflects our emotional bodies,
that flow with our passions.
.
“Well, I hear the Music.
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm,
Wrap around take a hold
Of my Heart.
What a feeling!
Bein’s believin’
I can have it all now.
I’m dancing for my Life.
Take your passion,
And make it happen.
Pictures come alive
you can dance
right through your Life.”
Irene Cara, Keith Forsey, Giorgio Moroder
.

Our relationships
also ebb and flow,
like the waves of the Ocean.

They swell with passion
and pulsate with energy,
and quite naturally wane
through periodic episodes of quiet solitude
and seemingly empty Time
and space.

This happens
in every aspect of Life

and Living.

Life is not just
like the Ocean,
it
is an Ocean.

It is vast and incomprehensible.
It is deep
and dangerous
.
And its Tides
come in

and then go out.
.
Everything
Breathes.

The very natural ebb and flow of our breathing
soothes our body and our mind,
much like sitting on the beach
of the Ocean.
Our Sacred Breath
is the shoreline between Life
and the next World.

Life
is an ebb and flow of pure energy.
It comes in and fills up,
then it pauses,
breathless for a moment before releasing its tension
and then flowing away.
This rhythm is a fundamental condition
of Life,
and Living,
and Loving.
The intensity will vary,
like the Tides of the
Ocean.

On the road of Life,
as we Journey on,
let Hope have a place
with Love in your Heart.
Look for Love
in every place,
in ever Day,
in every thing you do,
and say.

Love
is meant to be
God is Love,
like his precious Children,
YOU
and me.

The great blue Ocean of our World
is no deeper,
no wider,
no more filled with color
or salt or sand or sounds
of Joy and Glee
than we
imagine or
see.

The Reality
of Love
comes from God,
and resides
in YOU
and me.

Let Love be.

Just,
let it be.

Goodnight.

“The most exhausting thing in Life,
I have discovered, is being insincere.
When you Love someone,
you do not Love them all the time,

in exactly the same way, from moment to moment.
It is an impossibility.
It is even a lie to pretend to.
And yet this is exactly what most of us demand.
We have so little Faith
in the ebb and flow of Life,
of Love.”

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Timetable For A Vaccine
Against The New Coronavirus?

Maybe This Fall

Right now scientists are trying to accomplish something that was inconceivable a decade ago: create a vaccine against a previously unknown virus rapidly enough to help end an outbreak of that virus. In this case, they’re trying to stop the spread of the new coronavirus that has already infected tens of thousands of people, mainly in China, and given rise to a respiratory condition now known as COVID-19.

Typically, making a new vaccine takes a decade or longer. But new genetic technologies and new strategies make researchers optimistic that they can shorten that timetable to months, and possibly weeks — and have a tool by the fall that can slow the spread of infection.

What’s the urgency?

“Vaccines are really our most successful tool to prevent an infectious disease,” says David Weiner, executive vice president and director of the Vaccine & Immunotherapy Center at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia.

It used to take a long time to make vaccines, because scientists had to isolate and grow the virus in the lab. But now, it’s possible to skip that step altogether and build a vaccine based on a virus’ genetic sequence.

Chinese scientists made that genetic sequence from the new coronavirus public in early January, just weeks after the first infections with the virus were reported. That prompted several labs to start work on building a vaccine.

Vaccines work by teaching an individual’s immune system to recognize an invading virus and neutralize it. The vaccine that Weiner and his colleagues are developing is what’s called a DNA vaccine.

They’ll first turn pieces of the new coronavirus’ genetic code (which is RNA) into complementary snippets of DNA. These snippets will then be injected into someone’s skin, where they will be taken up by skin cells. The skin cells will then turn those DNA sequences into proteins identical to the ones a virus would produce, and those will be what “teaches” the immune system to recognize the new virus.

Weiner and his colleagues are in the process of determining which viral sequences produce the best “teachers.”

This isn’t Wistar’s first stab at rapid vaccine development. Weiner and his team worked on a vaccine for Ebola after an outbreak of that virus in 2014.

Including the initial time needed for animal testing and human safety testing, “We were able to go from no vaccine to a vaccine tested in the clinic in about 18 months — 15 to 18 months,” he says. They also made a vaccine against the coronavirus that causes Middle East respiratory syndrome, after an outbreak in South Korea. “And we were able to design and develop and move into the clinic in 11 months.”

Weiner says he’s hoping to halve that time with the vaccine they are making against the new coronavirus.

Keith Chappell at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, thinks he can do even better. He, too, has a vaccine that’s based on the virus’ genetic sequence. The Queensland team has come up with an approach it calls the molecular clamp. It works by improving the body’s immune response to certain viral proteins.

“Our goal was to be able to hit 16 weeks from sequence information to having a product that is shown to be safe and effective [in lab tests] and is ready for administration to the first humans,” Chappell says.

Right now, Chappell and his colleagues are also trying to figure out which genetic sequences will be most effective at helping the immune system recognize the coronavirus.

“Next steps will be moving into animal models for testing and also working out how to scale up to get to the levels that would be required in humans and beyond,” he says.

Both Chappell’s team in Australia and Weiner’s team in Philadelphia, in collaboration with the pharmaceutical company Inovio, are getting financial support from a fairly new organization called CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. CEPI is a global partnership of public, private and philanthropic organizations; it’s also supporting efforts at the biotech companies Moderna and CureVac.

Among other vaccine efforts worldwide, the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson is working on a vaccine, and GSK has also offered to help new vaccine efforts. Researchers at Imperial College London have developed a vaccine that’s already being tested in animals, and vaccine efforts are also reportedly underway in China.

CEPI CEO Richard Hatchett says the organization was created when people realized that an Ebola vaccine had been under development for a decade and it still took more than a year to get it to people when the 2014 Ebola outbreak occurred in western Africa.

“There were a number of enlightened global public health leaders who said, ‘You know, that shouldn’t happen. We should have some kind of an organization to develop vaccines against epidemic diseases,'” he says.

Even in the rosiest of scenarios, Hatchett says, once the vaccine is in hand, it still needs to get to the people who need it, and that takes time at least weeks to months, depending on the urgency.

Naturally, public health officials would like to have a vaccine as soon as possible. If the coronavirus outbreak pattern is anything like those of flu outbreaks, it will tend to taper off when the weather gets warmer and pick up as winter approaches and people spend more time indoors.

“We are making very aggressive efforts in the hopes of having a vaccine available — some form of vaccine available, potentially, as early as this fall,” Hatchett says.

The Hidden Boundaries of Our Lives / Long Before We Met / School Calendar 2020-21

“Come with me;
where we go we don’t need roads,

where we stop nobody knows:
For yesterday’s memories, today’s Love,
and tomorrow’s Dreams,
just close your eyes…..”
Movie: Legend
Music by Enya, Song of the Sandman

We have never
lost the way.
The Love in our Hearts
may be hidden,
but it will always
stay.

Love
is the only Light
we Forever see,
the only Light
to show us
the Way,
the way to Live,
the way to a reason
to cry,
the way to never
give up,
never deny,
the Beauty
of God’s Love for you,
for YOUR
precious Life.

Let us try
again
to Live another
day.
God’s Love Is Truly Alive
and will never
die.

In the Eye
of Time
Love
will always abide.

If pain has riddled your Heart
for so long
that Happiness feels unattainable,
if you are left with wounds unseen,
with tears
and fears
for so many years
they may never seem
to heal,
please Believe
in the One
who knows your name.

Love
is just a state
of Mind,
but
it is the Mind of
God.

Happiness lies beyond the clouds,
the Celestial Sphere
above the skies,
in your smiles,
in your eyes,
in the Hidden Boundaries
of Our Lives.
.
My Dear Friends,
the most fruitful and fertilizing rains
come with the darkest clouds.

One can indeed see and feel
the leaves of Autumn
falling all around,
as our tears also fall
toward the ground.

Please remember,
God made you
with Love and deep passion.
A magical combination
of Prayer and meditation,
of music and the Beautiful Nature
that abounds all around,
relieves you from stress
and makes you
a happier person.
There is a way
for you to Journey on.

                                  Beyond the clouds.

Life
somehow melts into a myriad
of colors and flavors
and memories
and sounds.
.
What we hear
are Melodies formed
from the notes,
shaped by the words
and the thoughts we share.
We remember
the ones that say,
“I care”.

Goodnight.

Dr. Bruce Rodgers.
What an Honor
to recognize the dedication
and sacrifice
to our Nation
of Dr. Rodgers.
He is
a man much to be
admired.
.
We Thank You
and
Love You.

Today

I am part
of ALL
that I see.
I am part
of every Leaf
on every Tree.
I am cousin
to the Hawk
and the beautiful Butterfly,
and the tiny Honey Bee.
Everything
that I touch
and taste
and smell
and hear,
becomes me.
I am
ALL
that I survey,
and see.

I am Truly
Blessed
beyond Belief. 

And when
I think on all the other
precious Living Things,
I come to know
that part of them
is some of me,
that you and I
are the sum
of  WE,
that God
Lives in Everything
that is Today
or ever will be,
and I am Truly
Blessed
beyond Belief.

      We are Living a Truth.

We all
come to Live,
to come alive
and to give
more than we know,
more than we are,
to be
and become
Loved
and in Love,
with someone
and everyone,
and the ONE
Who is Everything.

We are ever searching
and never reaching
the end.
We are Living
a Truth
that is Beauty
beyond what we can
imagine,
if
we but open the eyes
of our very Human
Hearts.

   You and I are the sum of WE.

Yes,
“I am you,
you are me,

I am part of all I see.”
This Truth is such an important one
to teach to today’s Sacred Children,
because we are getting more and more
disconnected
due to social media, electronic devices
and video games.
Yet scientists teach us that it is
connection
that will provide us with lasting
Happiness.

Dr. Emma Seppala
from Stanford’s Center
for Compassion & Altruism Research & Education,
says that when connection with others is present,
it can boost mental and physical health,
and even increase immunity and longevity.
Connection to our Family, community and
especially to Nature
is vitally important
for Children today.
YogaKids Momma Marsha

Connection.

“A philosophy of ALL Life,
is needed,
not of the Human alone.

It is not that the Human
needs to take care of all other Life
as a Moral obligation,
though that is certainly true,
it is that the Human is a small part of Life,
but one which possesses a characteristic
(intelligence)
which is valuable to the survival
and well being of all Life.
It was Life which developed that intelligence,
not the Human,
therefore its service is for all Life,
not merely the Human.
The Human is, in that sense,
a servant to Life,
a caretaker in the service of Life,

the good Shepherd
for ALL of Life.”

My Friend,
the only
One
who can heal you
and wash away the dust

your precious voice.

Because
He Loves you,

than you can wish.
Just as YOU
long to hear
the voice of your
precious Child,
your Father
in Heaven Above,
also Prays
to hear the voice
of His precious Child,
YOU.

“I am the Day,
soon to be born

I am the Light soon to begin
I am the new Hope in the morning
I am the darkness soon to be Light
I am the rising and the falling,
I am the Alpha and Omega

Based on the current state of
physics:

“The Universe is inevitable.
The Universe is impossible.”
Arkani-Hamed
.
Unbelievably,
both declarations are true,
and because they are mutually
contradictory statements,
they could be true
in a multiple Universe scenario.
But, there is no way to absolutely prove,
today,
that multiple Universes exist.

None,
except
that the only alternative
is that the Universe was actually
DESIGNED.
Belief in the multiverse among cosmologists
amounts to a surrender
in the war over design.

Yes
the alternative to multiple Universes,
is intelligent design,
which is not the same
as a belief in God.

“To posit the existence
of a Creator

requires only reason.
To posit the existence of a good God requires
FAITH.”
Dennis Prager

Those who admit
that the Universe must be intelligently designed
can discover exactly who that Designer is,
in the Holy Bible.

The God of the Bible
told us the Story of our Creation:
.
  “All things were made by Him;
and without Him
was not anything made
that was made.

John 1:3

My Dear Friends,
the Holy Bible
told us the story
of our Creation.
God has always existed.
And the Universe began
when He created it.

“For by Him
were ALL things created,
that are in Heaven,
and that are in Earth,
visible and invisible.”
Colossians 1:16-17

Those Scriptures
do not contradict
observable science.
Please share
with your precious Children
the Truth.

The Truth
is far more precious
than pure gold,
more valuable
than anything on
Earth.

Truth
is simply telling it
like it is;
it is the way things really are,
and any other viewpoint is not Truth.
A foundational principle of Philosophy
is being able to discern between
Truth and error,
or as Thomas Aquinas observed,

“It is the task of the philosopher
to make distinctions.”

And the greatest Philosopher
your child will ever meet
is YOU.

“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand,
you will see your parents
and all generations of your ancestors.
All of them are alive in this moment.
Each is present in your body.
You are the continuation of each of these people.

    Reality is reality.
It transcends every concept.
There is no concept which can adequately describe it,
not even the concept of interdependence.

    Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis on which the whole Earth revolves –
slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.
Live the actual moment.
Only this actual moment is Life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

You and your child
are truly ONE:
Biologically,
Spiritually,
and in every other
WAY.

Share
with your Child.
Show
the WAY.
And the pathway
to Truth,
and ultimate Truth,
which is LOVE,
is through your
precious Heart.

“Train up a Child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.”
Proverbs 22:6

What a Joyful
Adventure
awaits you.

Goodnight.

The pathway is through your Heart.

“O world-ignorance,
Although You have shackled my feet,
I am free.
Although You have chained my hands,
I am free.
Although You have enslaved my body,
I am free.
I am free because I am not of the body.
I am free because I am the Soul-bird
That flies in Infinity-Sky.
I am the Soul-Child that dreams
On the Lap of the Immortal King Supreme.”

What Really Causes Heart Disease
by Dr. Dwight Lundell, past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital , Mesa , AZ.

World Renown Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong
with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.”  Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.

It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or Morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated – it is quite simply your body’s natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process, a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is helpful.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body?  Well, smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation.

While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.

How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?

Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the works.

When your full cells reject the extra glucose,
blood sugar rises producing more insulin
and the glucose converts to stored fat.

What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.

While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator — inflammation in their arteries.

Let’s get back to the sweet roll. That innocent looking goody not only contains sugars, it is baked in one of many omega-6 oils such as soybean. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with omega-6 oils for longer shelf life. While omega-6’s are essential – they are part of every cell membrane controlling what goes in and out of the cell – they must be in the correct balance with omega-3’s.

If the balance shifts by consuming excessive omega-6, the cell membrane produces chemicals called cytokines that directly cause inflammation.

Today’s mainstream American diet has produced an extreme imbalance of these two fats. The ratio of imbalance ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6. That’s a tremendous amount of cytokines causing inflammation. In today’s food environment, a 3:1 ratio would be optimal and healthy.

To make matters worse, the excess weight you are carrying from eating these foods creates overloaded fat cells that pour out large quantities of pro-inflammatory chemicals that add to the injury caused by having high blood sugar. The process that began with a sweet roll turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally, Alzheimer’s disease, as the inflammatory process continues unabated.

There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.

There is but one answer to quieting inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural state. To build muscle, eat more protein. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation- causing omega-6 fats like corn and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them.

One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6;
soybean contains 6,940 mg.
Instead, use olive oil or butter from grass-fed beef.

Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.

The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.

What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.

The Lighter Side of Life / We Are ALL a Modern Work of Art / Sept. 1 We Begin Again

Dedicated to my Wonderful Friend
Rev. Donald Graves
Tucson Center for Spiritual Living

Don and I grew up together
and had so very many
wonderful adventures in
Boy Scout Troop 17.
What
a Truly Wonderful
Friend.

Thank You
for the Beautiful memories.
You are deeply admired
and Loved.

.

“You are the Beloved.
Be sure to treat yourself that way.”
– Rev. Donald Graves

I was recently joking around
with one of our very young students,
something I am wont to do,
(do frequently)
saying:
“Well, you know,
because I”m lazy, fat and ugly.”
At which point he looked intently into my eyes
and quietly said,
“Your not fat.”

I laughed so hard
I lost two pounds.

My Dear Friends,
we need to laugh
at the confusion that prevails
in Life
and in living.
.
It is hilarious!

“Eventually all things fall into place. 
Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment,
and know everything happens for a reason.” 

Albert Schweitzer

The illogical, superficial,
and unbelievable things we do,
collectively and as individuals
of unbelievable perfunctory indifference
toward the nature of our reality,
can be truly funny.

So why not enjoy it?

“Do not take Life too seriously.
You will never get out of it alive.”
Elbert Hubbard

According to Alison Bonds Shapiro,
one kind of humor is based on Love
celebrating the general Joy and goofiness
that comes with being Human.
This is laughing with someone.

.Patrick Allmond tells us
that Children laugh on average 200 times a day
and adults only 26 times a day.
And he states, “How many times a day
do you experience the rich joy of laughter?
If we want to be happier, healthier, and more productive
we seriously need to make time to laugh.”

“Unless you change
and become like little children,
you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
(Matthew 18:3)

                       Where is the average person?

If we can laugh at our mistakes,
and I do mean,
out loud,
we can, in a more positive manner,
effectively take some credit for them,
(here is where you take a bow)
and allow for them to become acceptable
lessons learned on this all too difficult
path of Life.

And you get three guesses
as to who made it so difficult,
and the first two
don’t count!

We are so perfectly and Beautifully
imperfect,
that the result is:
there is simply no one
we can call normal
or average.
(Thank God!)

“Normal
is a setting

I counsel with others,
especially children,
to make at least one mistake
on purpose,
daily.

This creates a highly controlled
learning opportunity.
It admits to our Humanity.
It opens the window
of our awareness.

Children, of all ages,
view it as time for a
great practical joke.

It causes one to
pause to reflect upon
what is really going on.
And ultimately
we learn over the years,
not to take Life so seriously.
Supercilious serious attitudes
lead to stress, strokes,
and striking out.

The lighter side of Life
is also a great adventure
and a broad avenue of opportunity
that may lead to
being on Comedy Central,
finding a new friend,
falling deeply in Love,
or stumbling up to the Altar
and muttering, “I did”
instead of, “I do”.

Creating us
proves to some of us
that God
has a sense of humor.

Perhaps the best indication
is that He created man in His image (Genesis 1:27),
and people are able to perceive
and express humor.

When you think of someone
who has a great sense of humor,
you will usually find this person laughs a lot.
Laughter and a good sense of humor go hand in hand.
And our ability to laugh
comes from God.
It is a great
Gift
.

Abraham Lincoln
used to quip that God had to have a sense of humor
to make us all as we are.

Our God has an absolutely delightful
sense of humor.

“He who sits in the Heavens laughs;
He holds them in derision.”
(Psalm 2:4).

My Dear Friends,
we almost always act like
we are going to survive
this very brief existence.
And the Truth is:
we are precariously
and very briefly perched
upon this Beautiful planet.

.

              It opens the window of our awareness.

Live in the moment.

One of my very favorite expressions is:

“Now remember,
We are just a nice normal family”.

You know,
I am always wondering,
where is this normal family?
Where is the average person?

“Normal”
Is Also a Dryer Setting.

We go through Life thinking
I am too short,
Too tall,
Too fat? Too whatever?
Ever get stuck
in a comparison cycle,
pursuing the
unattainable?

Yes we have!

My Friends,
I have news for you:
A NORMAL child
simply does not exist.
That is an illusion.
If not,
please introduce to me to one.
One will be sufficient!
(Now, don’t drag your child up here!
He or she will embarrass you
in a highly abnormal manner.)

“Only ONE person in 6,500
could be credited with achieving true
averageness in every measurable respect.
That person having molded himself into
the nicest, dullest and most proper
freak of normalcy”
for miles around.”

Guy Murchie

Our exceptionality is but one
of one of the things
that make us,
and our lives,
so very interesting
and very, very Beautiful.

We are all a
Modern work of art,
you know,
expensive,
different,
museum quality
and something
no one understands.

.

But can you imagine how dull,
how terminally boring
would Life be
surrounded by a plethora
of normal, average Human beings.
What would we ever talk about?

My Dear Friends,
stop worrying, wondering, and doubting.
Have Faith
that things will work out.
And if they don’t,
well, my fellow Humanoid,
celebrate!
You now have something to talk about,
something to laugh at
and something to think about.

“No one knows enough
to be a pessimist.”

                                 We all live for Love.

“A hundred years from now
it will not matter
what my bank account was,

the sort of house I lived in,
or the kind of car I drove,
but the world may be different
because I was important
in the Life of a child.”
Forest E. Witcraft

The past,
if left undenied,
can become a thief.
Don’t let the past steal Today.
Today is your property,
your beautiful Gift from God.

You’ve got to Love this life.
If not,
you are probably
going to hate it.

And how do you Love it?

Well,
it’s actually quite simple:
quit thinking so much about it.
And stop thinking about yourself.
Think about someone else!
That’s called Love.
And when you Love others,
they Love you back.
And Life, my friend,
is good to Live
again.

We all live
for Love.

And if you think deeply about it,
Love is the only thing
worth living for.

Yes,
it is that simple.

Now,

And tomorrow,
wake up and do more good
than you ever thought possible
for someone else.
And tomorrow night,
you will sleep well,

“We know
that for those who Love God
all things work together for good,
for those who are called
according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28

Remember,
turn out all the lights,
It needs to totally dark

Sleeping while exposed to light at night
causes a dramatic drop

I Love You.

He Experienced A Religious Ecstasy / His Beautiful Child Also Dreams / How To Reprogram Cancer Cells Back To Normal / Cell Phone Radiation Can Cause Cancer

 
“We come from the Stars …
and to the Stars we return.”
 

Photographs by Robert Frutos

“I declare
this World is so Beautiful
that I can hardly believe
it exists.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson observed:
“Though we travel the World over
to find the Beautiful,
we must carry it with us
or we find it not.”

Please allow me to share thoughts
of a man I deeply admire.
His writings have
changed many lives, including mine,
and brought about a deep and personal
awareness and precious insights that
could only have come through him
from God.

John Muir
was America’s most famous and influential
naturalist, conservationist, author,
environmental Philosopher,
early advocate of wilderness preservation,
helping to establish Yosemite and Sequoia
National Parks
and co-founder of the Sierra Club.

He experienced in Nature
a Religious Ecstasy.
Before the Majesty of Natural Beauty,
he found himself humble
before the Power of God
who Created it
all.

“When one tugs at a single thing in Nature,
he finds it attached to the rest of the World.”
John Muir

      The wilderness in the Human Soul

Muir learned to read
from the Divine Manuscript,
the rocks and the trees.
He came to discover complete Freedom,
and had experiences that
seemed timeless and devoid of space.
He felt his body had no weight.
“Life seemed neither long nor short,” he wrote,
“and we take no more heed to save time
or make haste than do the
trees and stars.”

He entered the Eternal now
and experienced days
that seemed to have
neither end nor beginning.
John discovered an Immortality,
and experienced himself
dissolved into the Landscape.

Everybody
needs Beauty as well as bread,
places to play in and Pray in,
where Nature may heal and give strength
to body and Soul alike.”
John Muir

 God’s first Temples

Muir experienced
the inter-relatedness of all things,
the union of rocks and clouds,
the Humanness of the Landscape,
the wilderness in the Human Soul,
a kinship with the wild Nature
he grew to Love,
a oneness.
One of my favorite thoughts
from John is this:

“A few minutes ago every tree was excited,
bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling,
tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship.
But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent,
their songs never cease.

Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life,
every fiber thrilling like harp strings,
while incense is ever flowing
from the balsam bells and leaves.

No wonder the hills and groves
were God’s first temples,

and the more they are cut down and hewn
into cathedrals and churches,
the farther off and dimmer
seems the Lord himself.”

 The Divine Manuscript

Muir wrote of being struck by
how clean Nature is.
All plants are clean;
all animals are clean.
Of all the living things on the planet,
mankind alone seems dirty.

“The wilderness is a Natural place
to consummate the longings
of the Soul.”

“We are now in the mountains
and they are in us,
kindling enthusiasm,
making every nerve quiver,
filling every pore and cell of us.
Our flesh-and-bone Tabernacle
seems transparent as glass
to the beauty about us,
as if truly an inseparable part of it.”

Humble before the power of God

My Dear Friends,
we are a part
of everything around us.
We are truly
one.
And we are
One with God.

Have I ever felt the way
John Muir describes
his feelings?
Yes,
my Friends,
many times,
daily.
.
THANK YOU

and so many others.
What a Blessing
your precious Lives
have been to
me.
You have given me
and many more
a Gift beyond compare.

“The clearest way into the Universe
is through a Forest Wilderness.”
John Muir

.I feel very deeply
that the greatest Gift
I could ever convey to you
Is the message found
in the writings of
John Muir,
and
in the Divine Manuscript.

Please discover
who you are,
and why.
.
Take time
to say a Prayer
in the unbelievably Beautiful
Cathedral of God’s Heart.
You will find it
beneath a Sky
filled with a Grace
you cannot deny.

“Somethin’ in the wind has learned my name
And it’s tellin’ me that things are not the same
In the Leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There’s a pleasin’ sense of Happiness for me.
There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That Tomorrow will be just the same
for you and me.”
Williams Paul H, Nichols Roger S
from:
Top of the World & We’ve Only Just Begun

 The Peace
your precious Heart
longs for
is waiting patiently
for you.
Now you know
where to find it.

I beg of you,
do not wait
too long.

“The Sun shines not on us but in us.
The rivers flow not past, but through us.
Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell
of the substance of our bodies,
making them glide and sing.
The Trees wave and the Flowers bloom
in our bodies as well as our Souls,
and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song
of the rocks in the Heart of the mountains is our song,
our very own,
and sings our
Love.”
John Muir

Opening a thousand windows to show us God.

“Oh, these vast,
calm measureless mountain days,
inciting at once to work and rest!
Days in whose Light
every thing seems equally Divine,
opening a thousand windows
to show us
God.”

John Muir

With Beauty Before Me

You will never regret

who found the way
to inner Peace,
who show us
the way
Home.

          To find the Beautiful, we must carry it with us.                                 – Ralph Waldo Emerson

My Dear Friends,
God
Whispers in our dreams.
He tells us
Many things,
Of the Majesty
Of Being,
Of the depth
Of His Love
For you,
For me,
For everyone,
Everything.

While we dream,
We do not know

While awake,
We dream
Much of the day
Away.
And still
Do not know.

“Restless thoughts
keep us from experiencing
Life more deeply.”
Li Po

If we could but see
That God dreams,
And the Beauty
Of His dreams
May be found
In you,
And all around
You.

“Indeed God speaks once,
Or twice, yet no one notices it.
“In a dream, a vision of the night,
When sound sleep falls on men,
While they slumber in their beds,
Job 33:15 

You are a Dream within a Dream.

Unconscious for a third
Of our lives,
The Life inside our Dreams
We never fully realize.
And much like our Dreams,
In Life
So many know what they want,
The Life they have never lived,
And may never live.

We walk in the footsteps
Of others.
We learn about Life
From someone,
Someone other
Than the One
Who Loved us enough
To give us
His Very Own
Breath of Life.

Awakening begins with
Hope and Prayer,
And remembering
We are His Dream,
And His Dreamer.

One fancies a Heart like our own must be beating in every crystal and cell. No wonder when we consider that we all have the same Father and Mother.       – John Muir

Every Human being
Has been Created
In the Image of God,
In a Dream.

Perhaps
One day,
We could live the Life
He wants,
And become
His Dream
Come true.

“This Universe is God’s Dream.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

You are
The perfection
Of His Desire,
His Child,
His Dream.

His Beautiful Child also Dreams.

  The dreams that
Set fire to your Soul,
Saturate your Heart
With Joy,
May not belong
To you.

God
In His Infinite Love
For all you are,
And all you were Created to be,
Comes to you,
And through you,
In Dreams.

“We are
a Dream of God.

The Toltec
a pre-Colombian culture

For you are a Dream
Within a Dream.
You are His Precious Imagining,
His Sacred Vision,
His Beautiful Child,
Who, like our Father,
Also Dreams.

From our days
In Goodness spent,
With thoughts Serenely Pure,
When our Hearts that beat
Are innocent,
What Blessings He will bring.
God will speak to us
Through the Music
Of the Night,
And listen
To our lonely Hearts
Sing.

          “When the solution is simple, God is answering.”                           – Albert Einstein

“Words
are jewels to our ears.”

Erick Querci

My Dear Friends,
these words are
truly Beautiful Jewels:

“So many Hearts I find
broke like yours and mine
Torn by what we’ve done
and can’t undo.

I just want to hold you.
Come on let me hold you
like Bernadette would do.

We’ve been around, we fall, we fly.
We mostly fall, we mostly run
And every now and then we try
to mend the damage
that we’ve done.

Tonight, tonight I just can’t rest
I’ve got this joy
here inside my breast.”

       To Love another person is to see the Face of God.                          Alain Boublil

My Dear Friends,
There is a Love
That is Divine,
And it is yours,
And it is mine.

When you awake,
When you are finally awake,
From this Life,
This Dream,
You will find
You are His Dream
Come true.
And you shall be
In the Warm Embrace of God,
In the Arms of Love Everlasting,
In the Heavens Above.

You will be
Home.

Goodnight.

How to reprogram cancer cells
back to normal.

Restoring normal miRNA levels
may potentially stop cancer growth,
Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered.
(August 25, 2015)
A way to potentially reprogram cancer cells
back to normalcy has been discovered
by researchers on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus.

The finding, published in Nature Cell Biology,
represents “an unexpected new biology
that provides the code,
the software for turning off cancer,”
says the study’s senior investigator,
Panos Anastasiadis, Ph.D.,
chair of the Department of Cancer Biology

New Study:
Cellphones Really Are Giving You
Cancer

Multiple studies have revealed
that cell phone radiation can cause cancer.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer
classified radio frequency fields ,
including those from cell phones,
as a possible carcinogen in 2011? (source)

The dangers of cell phone use
gained credibility in 2011
when the World Health Organization
admitted that cell phone radiation
may cause cancer.

The statement was made by 31 scientists,
from 14 different countries,
after reviewing evidence.
read more  HERE.
A child’s brain absorbs much more radiation
than that of an adult.

Studies like this serve one major purpose:
to remind us that we should be using
common sense and knowledge
to better protect ourselves
and our precious children
each day.

Now,
Let’s learn another way to spell
Deadly.
You may want to take notes.

And please, I beg of you,
show this information to your children.
They are much more intelligent
than we think.
Well,
at least before their fragile brains
are exposed to excessive radiation.

Top 20 Highest Radiation Cell Phones
(maximum possible SAR “specific absorption rate”
level from phones)

The SAR can be misleading as it measures the maximum radiation a cellphone emits and does not reflect the average amount of radiation it emits. There is accumulating evidence that cellphones that operate on GSM networks emit significantly more radiation than do cellphones operating on CDMA networks.

CDMA, or Code Division Multiple Access, is the type of cellular network used by the phone companies Verizon and Sprint. GSM, or Global System for Mobile Communications, is the type used by AT&T and T-Mobile.

The radiation spikes at the beginning of GSM phone calls means that they emit, overall, up to 28 times more radiation than CDMA phones. read more

Until Every Thread Is Torn / This Nutrient Could Eliminate 50% of ALL Deaths From CANCER / School Starts Sept. 1

    Pouring down like Golden Honey

Across the Evening Sky
the Light is slowly leaving,
pouring down like golden Honey,
with Beauty aglow
as we fall in Love
Believing,
but never truly knowing
if we are dreaming.

     ‘Til every thread Is torn.

Our Lives
we Live in such hues,
as if what is revealed
is real,
until every thread
is torn
from the Fabric of Life and Living,
in the Tapestry of
our minds
surreal.

.

So much of what we know
as Life,
is not really Living
at all.
But in the brevity of our Being,
in so Believing,
Blessings abound.

Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes,
with Beauty far beyond
what we can behold,
flung against the Canvass
of the Evening Skies,
reminded us
that the Love of God
opens our Hearts,
as we open our eyes.

Poets and Writers of Song
have always known,
always felt deeply,
our Hearts need to be
Courageous and Free.
Though we may be made blind
by illusions so bold
they appear infinite and immeasurable,
by the Grace of God
we can see.

     Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes

Joni Mitchell
expresses in beautiful song:

“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.”

Is it delusion to Believe
the images in our minds
are the real World?
Is it unlike
our experience of it?

The concept that reality is
only in the mind,
is found time after time after time,
In the study of Philosophy,
and in the Sciences
that remind.

Physicist
Sir Arthur Eddington notable said,
“Matter is mostly ghostly
empty space.”

To be more precise,
it is 99.9999999% empty space.

My friends,
we faint and flickering
shadows and shades
are almost non-existent.
Matter, of which we are made,
Is coming into and out of existence
Billions of times each second.

Your reality,
which includes you,
Is blinking constantly on and off at all times.
Quantum physics has left scientists
all over the world
Baffled.
Especially with the discovery
that our physical material reality,
Isn’t really physical
at all

Our Human brain is designed
by natural experience (in order to survive),
to sense the “on” frequency.
Just as quickly,
it blinks “off,”
and everything, including you,
disappears.
However, your brain registers and connects only
the “on” segments,
and thus you have the sense
or feeling of your reality being
solid.
What quantum mechanics reveals
Is that there is NO true “physicality”
in the Universe.

     We faint and flickering shadows and shades . . .

Quantum theory predicts
that every particle spends some time
as a combination of other particles
in all possible ways.
These predictions (read more)
are now very well understood and tested.
.
Yes my Friends,
we are truly ONE
with the Universe,
with each other,
with God.

“We don’t know what matter is
anymore than we know
what mind is.”
Christian de Quincy,
The Paradox of Consciousness

We have discovered in quantum physics
that even subatomic particles
are far, far from solid.
They are nothing like matter
as we think we know it.
These particles,
of which we are made,
can never be precisely measured.
And they are everywhere,
Everywhere,
In the same moment,
Until observed.

Religion incorporates transcendent, immanent
Omnipresence.
The Divine is everywhere.
The property of being present everywhere
defines a Universal and fundamental substance,
which is the source of all existence.
God is omnipresent in a way
that He is able to interact with His
Divine Creations,
with you,
Child of God.

Our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all.

“Behold,
Heaven and the Highest Heaven

cannot contain you,
how much less this house which I have built!
1 Kings 8:27

Plato believed
The real world
was a world of ideas
and
Eternal perfect forms.
.
Is it?

Particles are,
and we are,
Clouds of potential existence,
with no definite location.
Whatever matter is,
It has little,
If any,
Substance.

“We don’t know a millionth
of one percent
about anything.
Thomas Edison

Our idea of matter
as solid,
as substance,
is a quality appearing
ONLY in our consciousness.
It models what is real,
but is unlike
what is really,
or, perhaps,
NOT really,
there.

German philosopher Immanuel Kant
posited that time and space
are not inherent qualities of the physical World;
They are a reflection
of the way
our mind operates.

We are the creators of the World we experience.

And so,
We are NOT
passive experiencers of the World;
We are the Creators
of the world we experience.
We, my friends,
are Children of God,
and firmly at the center of things.
The Earth is not
at the center of the Universe,
WE are.

Human Thought Determines Reality.

“You don’t need to feel alienated
by being at the mercy of a blind material World;
YOU are the World.
Riccardo Manzotti

Early in the 1900’s it was proven
beyond a shadow of a doubt
with an experiment called
the double slit experiment.
Researchers found the determining factor
of the behavior of energy (particles)
at the quantum level,
is the awareness
of the observer. (read more)

Literature,
throughout the World,
of a Spiritual Nature,
proclaims that the whole world
Is within.

We are truly ONE with the Universe, with each other, with God.

The question of God’s existence
is the most important question
of Human philosophy.
One chooses either a self existent God
or a self existent Universe,
and the Universe is not behaving
as if it is self existent
.
According to the second law of thermodynamics,
the Universe is running down like a clock,
cooling off like a giant stove. (read more)

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are merging,
they are becoming one.
Not as antithetically opposed
as we may believe.
Our discoveries suggests
a far, far more enlightening meaning
to this marriage.

Not just academic,
not just philosophical,
but personal, practical, meaningful.
And as we think upon these things,
as best we can,
we become Blessed to realize:

“Those who dwell in the Beauty
and the mystery of Life
are never lonely.”

The Earth is not at the center of the Universe, WE are.

In our Human affairs
we Live our precious Lives
as if the material World
Is the fundamental reality.
And in this consciousness
lay the root of our discontent,
our misery,
our unquenchable thirst.

My friends,
we are losing our Humanity,
not knowing
WE
are far, far more
than Human.

The Human Spirit
Is the very essence of Life
In a Human Being.
And knowledge of this can amplify
the Joy of Living,
and bring about Spiritual Freedom.

You are a Spiritual Being
having a Human experience.

Your infinite capacity
to create, to Love, to dream, to forgive
and to be aware that you are far, far more
than you can ever imagine,
ultimately defines what it means to be
Human.
You are the most beautiful and miraculous Creation
in the Universe.
And you are
Eternal.

What is missing,
disappearing from Life,
Is the most exciting, wonderful, exhilarating
discovery of all:
When we Love someone,
and finally come to know
that we are deeply Loved,
God enters our Hearts,
and what is dreamed
becomes forever
real.
.
Goodnight.

We, my friends, are Children of God.

“I need your Love,
I need your Love,
God speed your Love
To me.”

Did You Know…

… that there’s a nutrient that could eliminate 50% of all deaths from cancer and prevent other diseases that claim nearly 1 million lives every year?

That nutrient is … Vitamin D, the “sunshine vitamin,” which is now recognized by traditional and natural doctors alike as one of the most powerful, inexpensive ways to prevent disease.

Vitamin D is found in small amounts in some foods, such as milk, eggs, fish, and fortified orange juice – but the most important, natural source of vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D influences over 2,000 of the 30,000 genes in the body, which explains why it has been found to inhibit the onset and spread of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis, to name a few.

Next to smoking, not getting enough vitamin D is the No. 2 risk factor of cancer!  Every year, 30% – or two million people worldwide (200,000 in the U.S. alone) – could be spared of dying from cancer if they would just take the proper amounts of vitamin D.

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, an Osteopathic physician and New York Times bestselling author, “Groundbreaking studies proved that 600,000 cases of cancer could be prevented every year just by increasing your levels of vitamin D. And without question, the best way to obtain your vitamin D is by UVB sunlight falling on unexposed skin in doses that do not cause sunburn. Beyond cancer, increasing levels of vitamin D could prevent diseases that claim nearly 1 million lives throughout the world each year.”

Dr. Michael Holick, one of the world’s most respected authorities on Vitamin D and author of The UV Advantage explains that “Vitamin D is made in the skin, gets into the bloodstream, and then goes into the liver and kidneys where it is activated into a hormone called 125-dihydroxy (calcitriol). It is this activated vitamin D that has biological, disease-prevention effects, such as preventing prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and colon cancer.”

The proper amount of vitamin D in the body helps to:

  1. stop mutated cells from forming and spreading;
  2. cause diseased cells to commit “cell suicide” – i.e., cause them to literally self-destruct;
  3. causes the differentiation of cells (Cancer cells are often undifferentiated, and this causes them to reproduce faster);
  4. reduce the probability that dormant tumors will regenerate into cancerous cells by inhibiting the growth of blood vessels in those areas.

Absorption is the key. Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., Director of the Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center, and an expert on the effects of the environment and diet on chronic disease, recommends that adults get 2,000 to 4,000 IU’s of vitamin D every day from the sun or from vitamin D supplements to prevent cancerous or dysfunctional cellular activity. However, most people get less than 300 IU’s a day.

While it’s true that excessive amounts of unprotected UVA rays can increase your risk of melanoma skin cancer, there is an overwhelming body of evidence that shows that moderate sun exposure combats cancer and other disease without risk.

It is virtually impossible to overdose on vitamin D. In fact, there’s never been a reported case of vitamin D toxicity – so go outside and enjoy your daily dose of sunshine! If you’re unable to get sufficient sun exposure, taking a high quality vitamin D supplement is recommended by many health practitioners. Natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), or human vitamin D, is the type most often prescribed for therapeutic reasons because it is far superior to vitamin D2, which is synthetic.

The Beautiful Message of Love you share is a shining Light.

.Reality,
My Dear Friends,
is projected outward
from
the Heart and mind.
If
you Believe,
it exists.

Our inner psychological state

physical reality.
This is regardless of the nature
of your psychological state.
This applies to everyone.
And,
you can use this knowledge
for your own benefit.
You can change
your own conditions.

The Bible says,
“Without Faith
it is impossible to please Him [God],

for he who comes to God must Believe
that He is and that He is a rewarder
of those who diligently seek Him”
Hebrews 11:6

If we seek Him,
will we find Him?
Yes.
.
God says,
“You will seek Me and find Me,
when you search for Me
with all your Heart”

Jeremiah 29:13

Yes,
we need to change
the World.
But to change the World
around us,
we must change
OUR World
inside.

“Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect Harmony.
Let peace begin with
me.

Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with
ME.”

Jill Jackson-Miller,
wrote this Beautiful song
after discovering what she called
“Life-saving Joy of God’s Peace
and unconditional Love.”

In the inner Core
of our Souls,
we find Faith.

We cannot doubt
we exist,
because we exist
to doubt.

Do not doubt
that God Loves you.
He Loves you
enough to liberate your mind
to doubt.
He Loves you enough
to let your precious Heart
show you the way
to His Heart.

Be at Peace
My Friend.
God is more real
than we are.

And so is
His Love.

Love that dwells
within your Sacred Heart,
will never lay upon an Altar
of vain repose.
God sets Glorious the setting Sun,
as the sounds of Nature
blend melodious song
to mirror Salvation,
made manifest Majestic
in every Human Heart
that beholds the
Eternal Light
of the Everlasting
Love of God.

Goodnight.

Biocentrism

Does The Soul Exist?
Evidence Says
Yes

New scientific theory recognizes Life’s Spiritual Dimension.

The reality of the Soul is among the most important questions of life. Although religions go on and on about its existence, how do we know if Souls really exist? A string of new scientific experiments helps answer this ancient spiritual question.
 
Consider the famous two-slit experiment. When you watch a particle go through the holes, it behaves like a bullet, passing through one slit or the other. But if no one observes the particle, it exhibits the behavior of a wave and can pass through both slits at the same time. This and other experiments tell us that unobserved particles exist only as ‘waves of probability’ as the great Nobel laureate Max Born demonstrated in 1926.
.
They’re statistical predictions – nothing but a likely outcome.
Until observed, they have no real existence;
only when the mind sets the scaffolding in place,
can they be thought of as having duration or a position in space. Experiments make it increasingly clear that even
mere knowledge in the experimenter’s mind
is sufficient to convert possibility to reality.
.
Many scientists dismiss the implications of these experiments,
because until recently, this observer-dependent behavior was thought to be confined to the subatomic world. However, this is being challenged by researchers around the world. In fact, a team of physicists (Gerlich et al, Nature Communications 2:263, 2011) showed that quantum weirdness also occurs in the Human-scale world. They studied huge compounds composed of up to 430 atoms, and confirmed that this strange quantum behavior extends into the larger World we live in.
.
.
Importantly,

this has a direct bearing on the question of whether Humans and other living creatures have Souls. As Immanuel Kant pointed out over 200 years ago, everything we experience – including all the colors, sensations and objects we perceive – are nothing but representations in our mind. Space and time are simply the mind’s tools for putting it all together. Now, to the amusement of idealists, scientists are beginning dimly to recognize that those rules make existence itself possible. Indeed, the experiments above suggest that objects only exist with real properties if they are observed. The results not only defy our classical intuition, but suggest that a part of the mind – the Soul – is immortal and exists outside of space and time.

(Immanuel Kant is the central figure in modern philosophy.
He synthesized early modern rationalism and empiricism,
set the terms for nineteenth and twentieth century philosophy,
and continues to exercise a significant influence today in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, and other fields.)

Immanuel Kant

The idea of the Soul is bound up with the idea of a future life and our belief in a continued existence after death. It’s said to be the ultimate animating principle by which we think and feel, but isn’t dependent on the body. Many infer its existence without scientific analysis or reflection. Indeed, the mysteries of birth and death, the play of consciousness during dreams (or after a few martinis), and even the commonest mental operations – such as imagination and memory – suggest the existence of a vital life force – an élan vital – that exists independent of the body.

Yet, the current scientific paradigm doesn’t recognize this spiritual dimension of life. We’re told we’re just the activity of carbon and some proteins; we live awhile and die. And the universe? It too has no meaning. It has all been worked out in the equations – no need for a soul. But biocentrism – a new ‘theory of everything’ – challenges this traditional, materialistic model of reality. In all directions, this outdated paradigm leads to insoluble enigmas, to ideas that are ultimately irrational. But knowledge is the prelude to wisdom, and soon our worldview will catch up with the facts.

Of course, most Spiritual people view the soul as emphatically more definitive than the scientific concept. It’s considered the incorporeal essence of a person, and is said to be immortal and transcendent of material existence. But when scientists speak of the soul (if at all), it’s usually in a materialistic context, or treated as a poetic synonym for the mind. Everything knowable about the “soul” can be learned by studying the functioning of the brain. In their view, neuroscience is the only branch of scientific study relevant to understanding the soul.

Traditionally, science has dismissed the soul as an object of human belief, or reduced it to a psychological concept that shapes our cognition of the observable natural world. The terms “life” and “death” are thus nothing more than the common concepts of “biological life” and “biological death.” The animating principle is simply the laws of chemistry and physics. You (and all the poets and philosophers that ever lived) are just dust orbiting the core of the Milky Way galaxy.

As I sit here in my office surrounded by piles of scientific books, I can’t find a single reference to the soul, or any notion of an immaterial, eternal essence that occupies our being. Indeed, a soul has never been seen under an electron microscope, nor spun in the laboratory in a test tube or ultra-centrifuge. According to these books, nothing appears to survive the human body after death.

While neuroscience has made tremendous progress illuminating the functioning of the brain, why we have a subjective experience remains mysterious. The problem of the soul lies exactly here, in understanding the nature of the self, the “I” in existence that feels and lives life. But this isn’t just a problem for biology and cognitive science, but for the whole of Western natural philosophy itself.

Our current worldview – the world of objectivity and naïve realism – is beginning to show fatal cracks. Of course, this will not surprise many of the philosophers and other readers who, contemplating the works of men such as Plato, Socrates and Kant, and of Buddha and other great spiritual teachers, kept wondering about the relationship between the universe and the mind of man.

Recently, biocentrism and other scientific theories have also started to challenge the old physico-chemical paradigm, and to ask some of the difficult questions about life: Is there a soul? Does anything endure the ravages of time?

Life and consciousness are central to this new view of being, reality and the cosmos. Although the current scientific paradigm is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence, real experiments suggest just the opposite. We think life is just the activity of atoms and particles, which spin around for a while and then dissipate into nothingness. But if we add life to the equation, we can explain some of the major puzzles of modern science, including the uncertainty principle, entanglement, and the fine-tuning of the laws that shape the universe.

“The Hope of another Life”
wrote Will Durant,
“gives us courage to meet our own death,
and to bear with the death of our Loved ones;
we are twice armed if we fight with Faith.

And we are thrice armed
if we fight with science.

Garlic in Prostate Cancer Prevention

click here to read more

Can garlic help prevent and fight prostate cancer, the most common non-skin cancer in America? Several studies suggest garlic and garlic supplements offer protection against cancer, including prostate cancer. These anti-cancer effects are thought to be largely attributable to organosulphur compounds which are produced during the decomposition of allicin. Allicin, in turn, is formed in raw garlic cloves when you crush or chop them.

Additionally, garlic – especially raw garlic – is rich in vitamin C, a nutrient that has been used to prevent and treat prostate cancer.

The rest of this article provides details of recent studies that have been carried out to investigate a possible link between eating garlic and a lowered risk of prostate cancer:

A population-based, case-control study conducted in Shanghai, China, found that men who ate more than 10 grams of Allium vegetables, particularly garlic and scallions, per day were 50% less likely to get prostate cancer than those who ate only a little bit of garlic. The reduced risk of prostate cancer associated with garlic consumption was independent of total caloric intake, body size, and consumption of other foods. This study appeared in the November 2002 edition of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

In another case-control study, a group of researchers from Oxford asked 328 men diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 75 and 328 controls to provide details of their dietary habits. The controls were matched for age. Garlic and garlic supplements, along with a few other foods such as beans and peas, were found to have a protective effect against prostate cancer. This study was published in the renowned British Journal of Cancer in 1997.

However, not all case-control studies support the theory that garlic helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer. A large 2006 study that analyzed dietary data from a number of Italian and Swiss case-control studies found a significant association between high garlic consumption and a reduced risk of several cancers, but not of prostate cancer. The scientists responsible for this study believe that in case of prostate cancer, hormonal factors may play a bigger role in the development of the disease than dietary factors. This study on garlic and cancer was published in the November 2006 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

GarlicThe Bottom Line

Some studies suggest that garlic can indeed help prevent and fight prostate cancer, while other studies imply that garlic does not have a significant protective effect against prostate cancer. However, there are numerous studies that show that a diet rich in garlic is good for your overall health and vitality, and that eating garlic regularly can reduce the risk of several types of cancer including stomach, mouth and throat, kidney, and colorectal cancers. This evidence supports the idea of including garlic in an anti-prostate-cancer diet (or almost any other diet aimed at improving health).

For Those Who Accept Truth / The Secret To Happiness And Longevity / Sept.1 School Starts

The Beautiful Gift to Humanity
that you are.

Love is the only power capable of spinning new Worlds into existence.

We start
with all the Love
we have been given,
and we arrive with the Love
we are.
.
And our Love
is capable of spinning
new Worlds into existence.

My Dear Friends,
Love

is ultimately for those,
who accept Truth,
the Truth of who you are,
the Truth you come from
the Love of
God.

Let us Thank the Lord
for the exquisite Gifts
of Life and Love.

And as we give Thanks
and Praise to our Creator,
our mind is comforted
and Life is elevated
into a deeper Realm
of inner Peace.

Love flows
like a raging river
from a purified Heart
within us.

When
we remember the best and Happiest
times in our Lives,
we come to know
we have been Truly Loved.
Joy,
My Friend,
emanates from Love.

To get your mind
in tune
with your Heart,
enjoy the quiet,
feel the solitude.
Listen to the Beauty of the Birds
in flight,
and feel the Loving caress
of your Mother,
Nature,
in the wind.

To feel at Peace,
re-balance the relationship
between your mind and your
Loving Heart,
through the Beautiful and calming
Music of Prayer,
and the acceptance of all the Blessings
of who you are.

             The magnificence of the departing Sky.

Give
the Blessing
of your precious Life
to those around
you.
Your Life
is a Gift.
You
are a Blessing
from God.
.
You can find
the rest and the Peace
you so long for
and deserve,
in the sweeping and Beautiful renewal
of the energy of Birds in flight,
in the Beautiful fields
of glittering gold and green so bold,
in the magnificence of the departing Sky,
in the meadows
and grasslands

that so often
you looked past

and beyond,
and thus
did deny.

                   Acceptance of who you are.

When we fail
to Love others,
it is a sign that our Heart
is not relishing enough
of the Wonder and the Blessings
of our
Beautiful Wold.

There is always
something Beautiful in the World
you can see.

“Lo, here the gentle Lark,
Weary of rest,

From his moist cabinet mounts up on high,

And wakes the morning,
From whose silver breast

The sun ariseth in his
Majesty.”

– William Shakespeare

The Music
of Prayer and Meditation
can calm
the relentless and restless
Spirit.
The highest wall
you have to climb
is the one you build in your mind.
Never let your mind
talk you out of your Dreams.
Dreams
are Heartfelt things.

There is always something Beautiful.

The mind
becomes the greatest obstacle
to Happiness.

Do the works of the one
you Believe yourself to be.
Live in the feeling
of Being the one you want to be,
and you shall be –
Happy.

When you Believe
in yourself,
and in our Loving God
who Lives deep within
your Sacred Heart,
you find the reality
of the Beautiful Gift to Humanity
that you are.
.
Goodnight.

Harvard Studied People For 75 Years And Found That Happiness And Longevity Comes From One Thing…

by Cheyenne Diaz

January 6, 2018

 This post was originally published on Ted.com

 What makes a good life? Many people around the world would say fame or money or “success.” But it turns out, a good life consists of much more than that.

The Secret To Happiness And Longevity

We all want to extend our happiness and longevity — so what keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life?

If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Dr. Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. Happiness doesn’t just come from “leaning in” at work or pushing harder for achievements. It doesn’t come from hearing our names spoken about in an envious way or from seeing our face plastered on billboards.

 As Dr. Waldinger says in the video, “We’re giving the impression that these are the things we have to go after if we want a good life.” But that’s actually not true.

 And he would know. As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. It’s known as the Harvard Study. And it’s the longest study of adult life that has ever been done.

 They’ve studied people who grew up in tenements, others who went to the best schools, and some who developed schizophrenia. They’ve watched as some climbed to the top of the social ladder from the bottom while others who made that journey in reverse.

 And they’ve been able to study and develop what the real picture of life looks like. It turns out that feeling connected to the people around you is the most important secret.

3 Lessons for relationships that improve your life

 If you want to invest in your best life, here are 3 tips you should consider.

1. Social connections make us happier and healthier while loneliness kills

 When you’re more socially connected to your family, your friends, your partner, and your community, you tend to be much happier and healthier. But the reverse is also true: the less connected you are and the more lonely you feel, the more vulnerable you are to an early death. And the unfortunate paradox in this day and age is that a lot of people are more connected before through technology, but less connected to real people in their lives.

2. It’s not just the number of your relationships but the quality of relationships that counts.

Just because social connections make us happier doesn’t mean you should get more of them or keep them all. Unhealthy marriages, for example, were actually almost more toxic that divorcing or staying single. It’s the quality, not the quantity, that counts.

3. Good relationships protect both our bodies
and our brains.

 Secure, attached relationships — relationships where both partners feel they can count on each other in times of need — protect our mind and our body. That doesn’t mean that you have to find a relationship where there is never any bickering or conflicts. It means that your relationship can protect you as long as you feel you can truly turn to the person you’re in a partnership with when the going gets tough.

 Take a look at the full talk to hear more about the study, as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

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

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.

Between The Known And What We Believe / GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN / The Sacred Soldiers of our Society: Our Officers of the Peace in the Valley

Think
with your
Heart.

There is a thin veil
between the known,

and what we Believe.

And,
as we struggle

day by day
to survive
and thrive,

we can Pray
and form a bond
with the unknown.
.

And a Song begins to form,
a
 Song
birthed
by the Human Heart

and heard
all the World around.

It blends
with voices in numbers
untold,
as we join in endless Praise
to give Thanks to God
for our precious Gift
of Life,

and all the Love
that abounds.

Never
shall we be
all alone,
when our Hearts
join as one,
in Praise
of the Miracle of Life
and Love through the ages,
  as we grow,
and come to know
more and more
Blessings
abound.

In Time,
we will come to know,
the Miracles of Life
are sent with Love
to all of us
from God Above.
.

We are part of
the Music
of a Magical Moment.

And as we join
in the Song of Life
and listen to the Beautiful Music of
Nature
heard all around,
 it brings us to tears
to know that Life
can be so very Beautiful,
even though
circumstances
can make us forget,
and create regret
we should never
know.

Through all Eternity
all
we need ever
know,
is God’s
Love.

“In Oceans deep
My Faith will stand
And I will call upon
Your Name,

And keep my eyes above the waves.
When oceans rise,
my Soul will rest in
Your Embrace
.
For I am Yours and
You are mine
.”

Joel Houston, Matt Crocker, Salomon Lighthelm

To keep our Faith
in the Divine,
be generous
and be kind,
and keep your Heart
and your eyes
upon the Beauty of the Earth,

and on the Skies,
and upon your Sacred Birth.
For all the Love
which from our Birth

over and around us lies,
we need but give Thee
Thanks and Praise.

Every Blessing
is a Gift.
And every Birth,
a Blessing.

 Today,
let us be so grateful
for the Gift of Life,
grateful for the Beautiful People
all around us,
for the air we breathe,
for the connection we have
with the Divine Love
of God.

As the Beautiful Sky
is opening upon the Dawn
of each new Day,
and the energy of the Universe
pours Life
into every cell
of your precious Being,
stand within the moment,
to give Thanks
and Pray.

May God Bless
YOU
and your precious Family,
and your friends.
Ask the Divine
to cleanse the Sacred Soul
and keep us 
on the Path to Fulfillment
of His Wishes and Dreams
for you.

May the abundance of God’s Love
fill your Sacred Heart,
and bring Joy
to you all.

Goodnight.

“Many night’s we’ve Prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our Hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood,
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear.
We were moving mountains
long before we knew we could.
There can be Miracles
When you Believe.
Though Hope is frail,
It’s hard to kill.
Who knows what Miracles
You can achieve
When you Believe.
Somehow you will
You will when you Believe.”
Stephen Schwartz

GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN

May God Bless and Keep
all of our Friends in law enforcement,
as they prove to be
such a Blessing to all of us.

Bouquets of Flowers never formed into words,
never spoken, can block the Sun.

“Someone’s lost the plan
for the Brotherhood of Man,
and no one is trying to find it
anymore.
And the winds become a sigh
for those who hate and those who die.
And the waves are black
and slow along the shore.”
– Roger Whittaker

Evil must be mirrored in the face of Courage, or it will overwhelm the innocent.

Our ignorance leaves exposed
parts of the Heart
we keep covered
from our own
deeper selves.

We want so desperately
to stand on the
Purity of Truth.
But we often cower in silence
facing the mirror
of our own fear.

As we tumble
out of our dreams
and back
into what we assume
is reality,
we fall from the Grace
of our Beautiful Imaginings,
and into the moment
of never really knowing
what is real,
what is
True.

patrol_officer-b

Wonderful neighbors and friends.

So very many
of our precious children
knew not
the difference between
now and never,
this moment
and forever.

They came
to a moment in Time
paralyzed in thought,
no longer able to
make sense
of the waking
World –
drifting,
as it were,
in and out
of what
they dreamed of
and hoped for,
and the World
became
a living nightmare.

hispanic_female-b

You are the Guardians of the Gardens of Life.

We watched
as many drowned
in the deep end
of an ocean of drugs and violence,
between innocence and confusion,
between waves
of goodbye
lapping upon our shores.

Indifference and ignorance
stagnated into
Daylight Nights
that seemingly would never end,
and into days
of sufferance with no new
beginning.

“Peace has its victories,
but it takes
Brave men and women

to win them.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear
perpetuated itself
in our ignorance,
as we listened not
to the soft, still voices
that cried from within
the fragile Human Hearts
of our precious children.

And we allowed evil
to steal from us
everything that God and Man
held Dearest.

But Hope
rises with the dawn
of a new horizon,
a new awareness,
as we find new meaning
in old lyrics
of Life.

tree-dark-b

    The mirror of our own fear.

My Dear Friends,
we are never really
far from the Light.
On the other side
of our spinning Globe,
it is always
on its way.

And as it spins
round and round and round,
we come face to face with fear,
in a seemingly
never ending dance
with destiny.
And we wait for the Light
of God’s Love,
unaware,
it is always
on its way,
or perhaps,
already
here.

officer-female-b

       The Light of God’s Love.

Evil
must be mirrored
in the face of courage,
or it will overwhelm
the innocent.

And our Children,
My Dear Friends,
are not for the taking.

If alone,
we have not
the courage and the strength,
the insight
and the wisdom,
to do battle
with the forces of darkness,
that for financial or other gain,
would destroy everyone
we truly Love,
then we must fervently Pray
for those
Towers of Strength
surpassing all others,
to come our way.

And God,
in His Wisdom,
provides.

officers-b

           Towers of Strength.

Yes.
God answers our
Prayers.

But then,
My Friend,
we MUST listen
to His Answer,
or ALL we will ever hear
is the cold and very lonely
sound of
Silence.

God
fervently
answers our Prayers.
He is with us.
And he Abides
within the Hearts and Minds
of so very many
wonderful neighbors and friends,
who have dedicated themselves
to protect
and save and serve,
and often
lay down their Precious Lives,
so we may live,
so that our children
may survive
and thrive,
and do so
without FEAR.

    Who chose to rise above.

These Sacred Soldiers
of our Society,
are reflections
of our Deeply Held Morality.
The are
the very Best
of the Best.
They are Gifts
that God and Mankind
have bestowed
upon us.

They are
the very Human
and very Courageous
Crusaders of our fragile Culture,
who willingly give their Lives,
so we may Live,
in Peace and prosperity,
in Freedom,
and with Honor,
with Dignity,
and with a Love
for Life.

They are the
Peace Officers
of our Nation,
who chose to rise above
the ordinary demands
of Life and Living.

Courage,
My Friend,
is a form of pure
Love.
The very word
comes from the Heart.
Coeur
is the French word
for Heart.

in-car-b

Reflections of our Deeply Held Morality.

In the finest traditions
of Service to Mankind,
we find the Purity of Truth
dictates
that the Courage
to Protect and Serve
and become a Salvation
for so very many,
is truly birthed in the
Heart.

Yes,
there is a deep River
that flows through
our fragile Lives.
Its reach
is very long.
It is truly deep.
And it is
Blue.
So very Blue.

A River of Love
is flowing,
ever flowing toward
what abides Infinitely Deep –
and it flows
from the Vast Ocean
of God’s Love.

     Courage to the Core.

Our Brothers and Sisters
in Blue
are Human too,
with Courage
to the Core,
so you
can be you.

Please join me
in extending our sincere appreciation
to one and all,
who are so
Lovingly and Courageously
dedicated to preserving
our way of Life,
our Love of Living
and our precious Children.

We THANK YOU.
And we truly
LOVE YOU
too.

And
we thank God
for the precious Gifts
of your Lives.

You
are the Guardians
of the Gardens of Life.
And we are
truly Grateful.

Our Prayers
are with you
and
your precious Families.

high-five-b

       Our Prayers are with you.

May you always find
Peace
in your Hearts
and Peace of Mind,
the Peace in our Hearts
and our Minds,
that you so courageously give
to us.

pink-flower-b

“In Valor there is Hope.”   – Tacitus

You reach out to us
each and every day,
and selflessly give
so that we
may Live.
Flowers grow
for the comfort
of Mankind.
Grasping wild,
they tell evermore
of Love
that Blossoms like those
now in hand.

But bouquets of Flowers
never formed into words,
never spoken,
can block the Sun.
A constant shadow
can lie evermore across
what we did not say
today.

2-cops-b

God Loves us through the lives of those who live to protect us.

So let us begin
to express our Love,
the very deep and abiding Gratitude
that lives within,
to those who have
given so much,
to so many.

Children
can teach us
many things.
They can show us
that Love
is a simple thing.
It begins
with but a smile,
and it never really
ends.

with-kid-b

           Children can teach us.

May God Bless
and Keep
each one of you,
our
Officers
of the Peace
in the Valley.

May God
take into His Heart
the precious Spirit
of all those
who laid down their precious Lives
upon the Sacred Altar
of our Freedom.

Yes,
our Father in Heaven Above
is never really far away.
He guards us,
illuminates our path
and Loves us,
through the precious Lives of those
who Live to protect us
every day.

“Greater Love
hath no man
than this,
that a man lay down his Life
for his Friends.”
John 15:13

Goodnight.
