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.

Our Story of No Greater Gift / Be a Honey and Save the Honey Bees / Monday and Tuesday: Julius Caesar Production at School

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky.
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.
Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.”
– John McCrae May 1915

The Story of Mankind,
OUR story,
may end
unlike it began.

  “This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper.”
– T. S. Eliot
The Hollow Men

My Dear Friends,
the precious Gift
of Freedom,
is given to us,
each and every one,
by those who sacrificed
everything:
their Freedom,
their deep longing to Live,
all the Love that Life
could bring,
the Beauty
of every Spring,
yes,
everything.

And now,
thanks to them,
this day begins
everything.

The pathway forward.

The past
permeates through
YOU
and me,
as we cruise
into this Life
with many Sails
unfurled.

The Brave
do not lie quietly
in their Sacred Graves.
They are
alive
in YOU.
With every shout
of Joy,
with every Blessed moment
to remember,
they quietly celebrate
the Life
you live,
that they give
to you.

        Time is not a natural feature of our Universe.

So breathe deeply
and say a quiet
Prayer,
a Prayer of Thanksgiving,
for the most precious Gift
you will ever receive,
the Gift of Freedom
and Life.

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

The Oceans
of their deep and abiding
Love
break upon every
shore.

Deep
in the Forest
of our ideals and ideas,
where our Heart glows,
we live
in this day
and in yesterday.

Their Sacred Sacrifice,
a still Living, breathing thing,
is the Freedom
that can be found,
to be more profound,
than any other
thing on Earth

And now,
let us take time
for reflection.

If
in this day
all is ending,
without Tomorrow,
the past never happened.
The sacrifices
never made.
Without Tomorrow,
there is no Today.
And without this day,
Tomorrow shall never
be.

We are
that we are,
and what will be,
or never be.

The Love of your Child is the way.

Our precious children
are the Seeds that spring to Life
in the Sacred soil
of Freedom,
purchased at the price
of so much sorrow,
suffering and death.

The Love
of your Child
is the way
to remember and Honor
all those who suffered and died
in war.

Let us Honor
their sacrifice
and make the darkness bright.
Let us bear the Truth
and the Light.
They are calling
in the night,
like a Candle very bright,
to give our Children
Hearts
for Love
alone.

Jean-Paul Sartre

If existence
precedes essence,
then our essence
precedes
our further existence.
  But the essence of a thing
is far more fundamental,
more immutable than its
existence.
.

The pathway forward
is beneath
our feet.
Let us
search for it
with our minds,
and follow it
with our Hearts.

What leads us
to Tomorrow
is the Light
of Today.
And that Light,
the Light of Love,
must be seen
by everyone.

As we
open our eyes
and peer into
the Hearts of others,
we see
more clearly.

                         There must be no more War.

The specter of
Hope
resonates throughout
History.
But the History
of all Mankind
is one tragedy
followed
by another.
The chapters
are marked
by
war after war.

But Today,
there must be
no more,
no more
War.

Down the mountain side
we will fall,
into a valley hushed
and white with snow.
No one will be here,
in the bright Light
of the Sun to tell
of our journey upward,
with sweeter songs
that accompanied us.
For what was unknown
became real,
and what then was real
became, with us,
unknown:
a potential existence
that stilled every voice
that sang every song.

“But of the tree of the
knowledge

of good and EVIL,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof,
thou shalt surely
die.”

– Genesis 2:17

Life
without the deep and abiding
reflection of Love,
simply
cannot exist,
cannot prevail.

kawalows

The deep and abiding reflection of Love.

Unknowing
becomes known
because you exist.
But you are here
because of the
Love
that also existed.

Time is not
a natural feature
of our Universe.
It is a concept
invented by us,
we, so Human in being.

There may be no past behind us,
or physical future waiting
in the wings.

Nature
does not defend
the right to cry.
But cry we will
late into our night.
For the reality
of Being
resides within each
Heart.
And so it was,
and always has
been.

Cherish the mind
that has a
Heart.

Goodnight.

                   YOU may not give a Hoot. But I do!

“Little Fly,
Thy summer’s play
My thoughtless hand
Has brushed away.
Am I not like thee?
Or art not thou A man like Me?
For I dance and drink and sing,
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.”
William Blake

How mowing your lawn less
could help save the B
ees
read more

By Chaffin Mitchell, AccuWeather staff writer

If you forget to mow your grass for a couple of weeks, it turns out you might be doing a favor for the environment.

New research by the USDA Forest Service and partners funded by the National Science Foundation found that mowing the lawn less frequently can significantly improve pollinator habitat.

Susannah Lerman, a research ecologist with the USDA Forest Service’s Northern Research Station, and her collaborators studied whether different lawn mowing frequencies (one, two or three weeks) influenced bee abundance and diversity in herbicide-free suburban yards in Springfield, Massachusetts.

“Mowing lawns less frequently provides an additional opportunity for householders to support bee conservation,” Lerman said.

Green spaces in urban residential yards could provide suitable habitats for pollinators.

“Mowing less frequently is practical, economical and a time-saving alternative to lawn replacement or even planting pollinator gardens,” Lerman said.

Frequent mowing inhibits the growth of “weedy” species which include dandelions and clover.

Since widespread population declines of bees and other pollinators from habitat loss are a growing concern, spontaneous flowers such as dandelions and clover could provide pollen and nectar sources throughout the growing season.

The team experimentally tested whether different lawn mowing frequencies of one, two or three weeks influenced bee abundance and diversity in 16 suburban western Massachusetts yards by increasing lawn floral resources.

“Lawn-dominated yards, when mowed less frequently and not treated with chemicals, can support surprisingly high numbers of bees and species diversity,” Lerman said.

At the Anderson School, we allow the front 2 acres of our property to blossom into beautiful Wild Flowers each Spring and Summer. This is to assist our resident Honey Bees to survive and thrive. We keep a hive for them at the back of the property – and Thank You Carter and Dad, Travis, for the new Honey Bee Hive! It is beautiful. The word buzzing around is: They Love It!!  Our Honey Bees always Beehave and truly Beelong. We Love them very much and cherish what they do for us.

My Dear Friends, please reserve some space at your home for these very precious Gifts from God. Be a Honey and help a Honey Bee.

The Illusions of Life / Everybody Hurts / Friday: At School to Rehearse our Shakespeare Production

“Intellectuals solve problems;
geniuses
prevent them.”

– Albert Einstein (1879-1955),
Physicist and Nobel Laureate

                  Illusions?

There are
any number of problems
that seemingly require
a number
of solutions.

However,
many problems require
no solution.
They
were never problems
to begin with.

“There is always an easy solution
to every Human problem
– neat, plausible, and
wrong.”

– H.L. Mencken (1880 – 1956),
American Journalist, Essayist, and Editor

MANY
things we consider problems
today,
are simply NOT.
They are
illusions.
In fact,
they are added to
what we perceive as
reality.
They become real
to us.

Our perception
of the World around us
is always literal.
We see
what we want
to see.

“As we learn to recognize
our perceptual errors,
we also learn to look past them
or “forgive.”
At the same time we are forgiving ourselves,
looking past our distorted self-concepts
to the Self That God created in us
and as us.”
– from “A Course in Miracles”
click here for more

But,
the illusions of Life
are
fascinating.
They add new
dimensions and depth
to our perception of
reality.
Life can become
not so boring,
but,
also ultimately
unbearable.

The Holy Word of God leads us directly to the answers.

Let us never deny
each other
the real reality
of our
Love.

The good
we fail to do,
far exceeds
the wrong
we do.
Far in excess,
we can prevent
what wrongs we may do
by sharing
the limitless Love
in our Hearts
today.

The illusions of Life are fascinating.

The Truth
is
always stranger
than fiction.
And that fact
has much to do
with the Nature
of Reality.

With all the
complex and fascinating things
that fill our lives,
the MOST mysterious
are the things
we are not privileged
to be aware of.
And being unaware,
does not mean
something does not
exist.

You
may not believe
in God.
But that does not mean
that God
does not believe
in YOU.

“Oh, everything matters
If anything matters at all.
Everything matters
No matter how big,
no matter how small.

Oh, God believes in you.
God believes in you.”
Pierce Pettis

What is to be lived for
is not the illusion
of Life,
but the
Reality of Love.

“Great Miracles
were always proceeded
by Prayer.”

“If a problem has no solution,
it may not be a problem,
but a fact –
not to be solved,
but to be coped with
over time.”
– Shimon Peres
9th President of the State of Israel
Israel’s warrior for Peace was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994

My Friends,
IF
we become aware
of the Infinite power
and potential
of our own God given,
dynamic ability
to alter the very Nature
of what is real,
perhaps we can,
one day,
realize that there is
an Ultimate Reality.

And that
Genuine Reality
permeates beyond and
supersedes
everything we assume
is real.

Yes.
It may be difficult
to realize,
but there is
an Ultimate Reality,
a real Universal Consciousness.
And
the Holy Word of God
leads us directly
to the answers
we seek.

The Ultimate Reality,
the only Reality,
is Love.

“Love is the only reality
and it is not a mere sentiment.
It is the ultimate truth
that lies at the Heart
of Creation.”
– Rabindranath Tagore
Poet, Playwright, and Essayist
Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913

My Friends,
if you long for
the Truth,
if you want
the answers
to Life’s great, perplexing,
mysterious equations and questions,
the answer is
simple.

Love
is the answer.

And Love,
my Treasured Friends,
is the question,
the question
we need never ask
again.

Love.

Goodnight.

 “The day science begins to study
non-physical phenomena,
it will make more progress in one decade
than in all the previous centuries
of its existence.”

Nikola Tesla

When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough
Of this life,
well hang on.

Don’t let yourself go,
‘Cause everybody cries.
And everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong.
Now it’s time to sing along.
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on).
If you feel like letting go (hold on).
If you think you’ve had too much
Of this life,
well hang on.

Cause everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don’t throw your hand,
oh no.

Don’t throw your hand.
If you feel like you’re alone
No, no, no, you are not alone.

If you’re on your own in this Life,
The days and nights are long.
When you think you’ve had too much
of this Life to hang on.

Well,
everybody hurts
sometimes.

Everybody cries.
Everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes.
So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on,
hold on.

Everybody hurts.”
William T. Berry, John M. Stipe, Peter L. Buck, Michael E. Mills

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.

             Like the breathing of the Oceans.

Herbs and Supplements for Diabetes

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.

A Rainbow Bridge to Time Unknown / The Budwig Protocol and Beyond / Friday: at school (Shakespeare Rehearsal)

“Humanity takes itself too
seriously
.

It is the world’s original sin.
Oscar Wilde

          For the beauty of the Earth.

The threshold
of all our Dreams
lies deeply embedded
within the fragile folds
of our very Human
Hearts.

To make our
Hearts
dream of Love
alone,
be still and listen,
as God
Joyfully sings to our
Spirit.

Let it be.

He comes to cleanse and heal,
to minister His Grace –
no work too hard for

Him.
In Faith receive from Him.
Be still,
for the Power of the Lord
is moving in this place.”
David J. Evans

As we seek answers
to questions we raise,
we may discover
the knowing
that lies within
a Joyful Hymn
of Praise.

For the Love over and around us.

“For the beauty of the Earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the Love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.

Lord of all,
to Thee we raise,
This
our Joyful Hymn of Praise.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale,
and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light:

Gentle thoughts and mild.

For the Joy of Human Love,
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on Earth,
and friends Above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.


For each Perfect Gift of Thine

To our race so freely given,
Graces Human and Divine,
Flowers of Earth and buds of Heaven:
Lord of all,
to Thee we raise

This our Joyful Hymn of Praise,
our Hymn of Praise
.”

      In the shadows of illusions, I see.

You are
like a Rainbow Bridge
to Time
unknown,
to form the Unity
of We,
the countless generations
of You and Me
to be.

      You are the Rainbow bridge.

As Flowers
Worship the wind
and covet the rain,
the Sun
makes the night
like no day has been –
thirsting for the Dawn
with enough
Love
for Flowers to blossom,
again and again.

When Life
was new,
and our day was young,
Hearts were high,
and Love
unsung.

But Life
has meaning,
and in Love
has a name.

Hallelujah.

With enough Love for Flowers to blossom.

We are all born
at Sea,
with our Soul
searching for the shore,
with Love enough
for everyone
and unaware
thy place
in everywhere.

In the shadows
of illusions,
I see
what is meant
to be.
In the never ending,
ever ebbing, whirling wind
of Time,
what stands before us,
reaches out
to embrace
the Infinite Sky.

You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in Time.
Make it shine.
Give me
One moment in time.
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams
Are a heart beat away
And the answers are all
up to me.

Give me one moment in Time
When I’m racing with destiny.
Then, in that one moment of time
I will be,
I will be free.

I will be
free.
John Bettis, Albert Hammond

Our lives
are as fleeting
as the clouds
drifting over the
Earth.

“Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapor,
that appeareth for a little time,
and then vanisheth away.”
– James 4:14

As we pass
each other by,
we never realize
the brevity of our breath,
makes us
almost
breathless.

God’s words
challenge us
to open our Heart,
to open up our
mind.

I wish you
all the Love
that Joy can bring.

Goodnight.

  As fleeting as the clouds drifting over the Earth.

The Budwig Protocol
Natural approach to preventing and helping to treat
cancer and other diseases.

In 1952, Dr. Johanna Budwig was the German Government’s Senior Expert on lipids and pharmacology and was considered one of the leading global authorities on fats and oils. During her research, she discovered that many of the conventional processed fats and hydrogenated oils were destroying the membranes of our cells, and this caused diseased cells and toxicity.

Developing a specific diet — in this case, the Budwig diet protocol — to counteract this cancer-causing process, Dr. Budwig claimed to have had over a 90 percent success rate with her protocol over a 50-year period!

How the Budwig Protocol Works

When you replace deadly processed fats and oils with life-giving unsaturated/saturated fatty acids, your cells rebuild and are rejuvenated. Dr. Budwig found that consuming a mixture of cottage cheese, flaxseeds, and flaxseed oil had the best results.

When cottage cheese (which is rich in sulfur protein and saturated fats) and flax (which is high in electron-rich unsaturated fatty acids) are combined this way, your body is able to absorb these vital nutrients easier and quicker.

My “Beyond Budwig” Recipe

Because of the changes in agriculture, I suggest this updated 21st century version of the Budwig Protocol:

  • 6 ounces cultured dairy (cottage cheese, goat’s milk kefir or amasai)
  • 4 tablespoons sprouted and ground chia or flax
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in bowl or blender and consume once daily.

For more details, check out the article and video I posted on the Budwig Diet Protocol for Cancer.

  1. Proteolytic Enzyme Therapy

In 1906, John Beard first proposed that pancreatic proteolytic enzymes represent the body’s main defense against cancer. Beard focused on high dose porcine-based pancreatic enzyme therapy and eating a holistic diet to create an internal environment in which the body can more thoroughly heal itself.

While it wasn’t researched for most of the 20th century, a few scientists picked up the concept in the 1960s. But it wasn’t until Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD started to evaluate the concept at Cornell University Medical College in 1981 that people started to seriously consider this natural approach.

How the Pancreatic Proteolytic Enzyme Approach Works

The autonomic nervous system consists of the sympathetic (“fight” or “flight”) and autonomic (“rest” and “digest”) nervous systems. Basing his protocol off of Dr. Francis Pottenger’s research in the 1920s and 1930s, Gonzalez’s work centers on balancing these two systems, as they are suspected to be one of the major causes of cancer.

He discovered that a vegetarian diet suppresses sympathetic function, whereas the opposite is true with a meat-rich diet. So after dividing patients into different categories based of their metabolic differences, genetic and physical make-up, here are the recommendations:

  • People with epithelial tumors like lung, pancreas, colon, prostate, uterine cancers are prescribed a largely plant-based diet with minimal to no animal protein.
  • People with blood or immune based tumors like leukemia, myeloma or lymphoma are put on a high-animal protein, high-fat diet with minimal-to-moderate plant foods.

In addition, these physicians recommend taking 5 grams of proteolytic enzymes 3 times daily on an empty stomach between meals to reduce inflammation.

According to Dr. Josef Beuth, the research behind this natural cancer treatment is pretty airtight:

These studies demonstrated that systemic enzyme therapy significantly decreased tumor-induced and therapy-induced side effects and complaints such as nausea, gastrointestinal complaints, fatigue, weight loss, and restlessness and obviously stabilized the quality of life.

  1. Vitamin C Chelation

Chelation therapy uses chemicals or natural compounds to remove toxic metals from the body.  The word “chelate” means to grab onto something, which describes chelating agents’ ability to grab onto toxins. 

Generally, only holistic doctors and naturopaths use chelation therapy because it is not an officially “approved therapy” for most conditions in medicine today.  When it is employed in the medical system, however, it is most commonly used to remove calcium deposits from arteries.

In a study published in Free Radical Biology & Medicine, vitamin C chelation therapy was found to be highly pro-oxidant after just one hour of treatment. This benefit lasted more than 16 treatments in the absence of nutrient supplementation and even provided “beneficial long-term antioxidant effects.”

Pro-oxidation isn’t always good, but in this case it is.

It was discovered that, “Pro-oxidant effects appear to be responsible for destroying tumor cells. These pro-oxidant effects may also induce endogenous antioxidant systems in normal tissues that offer protection against carcinogenic insult!”

Along with vitamin C chelation, consuming more vitamin C-rich foods may also prevent and fight cancer.

  1. Frankincense Essential Oil Therapy

Dr. Budwig recommends frankincense essential oil (especially when it comes to fighting brain tumors). And now research trials highlighting frankincense’s potential canter-fighting abilities are filling medical journals. Specifically, Indian Frankincense (Boswellia serrata) has been shown clinically to being a potentially effective treatment for:

  • Brain cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Stomach cancer

According to researchers out of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, the potential cancer-killing effects of frankincense are due in part to its ability to influence your genes to promote healing. Baylor cancer scientists emphasize that this potency makes Boswellia serrata a viable candidate for both cancer prevention and treatment!

How Frankincense Essential Oil Therapy Works

Rub frankincense essential oil on your neck three times daily. Also, drink three drops in 8 ounces of water three times daily.

  1. Probiotic Foods and Supplements

Best known as “good bacteria,” probiotics are microorganisms that promote a natural balance in your intestinal microflora. The best way to include probiotics in your diet is in their most natural state, which includes raw milk products such as cheese, kefir and yogurt.

Recent research has suggested that probiotic supplementation may be able to stop tumor growth. And this makes perfect sense because 80 percent of your immune system is housed in your gut. In addition to supporting your immunity to disease, research has also shown that probiotics can improve digestive function and mineral absorption as well as aid in healing leaky gut, which all contribute to helping prevent cancer!

  1. Sunshine and Vitamin D3

Science continues to support the fact that high levels of heart healthy, fat-soluble vitamins and minerals are key to keeping your body free of cancer. And recently, there has been considerable progress regarding the role that fat-soluble vitamin D3 plays in cancer prevention.

Research studies are mounting and a 2007 randomized placebo controlled double blind clinical trial suggests that vitamin D may be a highly effective way to help prevent cancer.

The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, is truly groundbreaking as it evaluated nearly 1,200 postmenopausal women for four years and tracked how a 1400-1500 milligram supplement of calcium compared to a calcium supplement plus 1,100 IU vitamin D3 in preventing cancer.

The results were amazing. After just one year of vitamin D3-added supplementation, the risk of developing all cancer types was decreased by an astounding 77 percent! Compared to the 0 percent improvement in the placebo and calcium supplement only groups, this is truly remarkable!

The Best Way to Get Vitamin D

To best prevent breast cancer, research suggests you should supplement so that your vitamin D3 levels are at least 40-60 ng/ml and up to 80 ng/ml.

The sweet spot you’re shooting for is 50-70 ng/ml. Here’s the best way to get there:

  • Optimize vitamin D3 through 20 minutes of sun exposure everyday. This is best done by exposing 40 percent of your body to the sun between 10 am and 2 pm.
  • Take an oral supplement containing around 5,000 to 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily. Because they are fat-soluble, make sure that you take them with some healthy “fatty” foods containing coconut oil or a probiotic-rich drink like kefir.

It can be challenging to find a pure supplement on the market, so try to find a combination formula of astaxanthin, omega-3 fish oil and vitamin D3.

  1. Turmeric and Curcumin 

While the link between curcumin and disease reversal has been widely examined, the use of this spice in relation to cancer is one of the most thoroughly researched topics.

A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells suggest that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to fight cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It seems to be most effective against breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.

In fact, a 2007 laboratory study showed that the combined treatment of curcumin with chemotherapy eliminated more bowel cancer cells than chemotherapy alone.

Other laboratory studies have also shown that curcumin interferes with cancer development, growth and spread. And researchers have reported that curcumin blocked the formation of cancer-causing enzymes in rodents.

Bottom line: Evidence suggests that in general turmeric works well to help stop cancer in its tracks and is especially effective at helping to treat breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer.

  1. Oxygen Therapy and Hyperbaric Chambers

All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen — a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35 percent of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.

~ Otto Warburg, MD (Nobel Prize in Physiology Winner, 1931)

Dr. Warburg made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. He also discovered that cancer cells do not breathe oxygen and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

We’ve all heard that antioxidants kill free radicals in the body and reverse oxidative stress-causing chronic disease. This is one of the reasons why I love to use blueberries in my morning Berry Protein Smoothie! But is eating blueberries enough to cure cancer?

Probably not. That’s why supplementing with oxygen therapy and utilizing a hyperbaric chamber is highly beneficial for people seeking natural cancer treatments.

Because the air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is about 2.5 times greater than the normal pressure in the atmosphere, it causes your blood to carry more oxygen to the organs and tissues in your body. Thought to heal everything from infected wounds to radiation injuries, many people claim that it has cured them of cancer. While it’s not quite mainstream yet, a growing numbers of hospitals have purchased some units to help their patients.

  1. Prayer and Building Peace

A Joyful heart is good medicine,
but a broken Spirit dries up the bones.

~ Proverbs 17:22

In addition to the many research studies that have been conducted on the healing benefits of prayer, maintaining mental peace and a positive outlook are absolutely critical to cancer prevention and treatment.

Some people utilize Eastern techniques like practicing tai chi or simply feeling gratitude, and these are highly effective in their own right. My favorite forms of meditation, however, consist of prayer, gratitude and reading the Bible.

Whatever your preference, make sure your focus is on living a stress-free lifestyle filled with peace and joy!

Bonus Therapy: Immune-Boosting Mushrooms

Mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for over 4,000 years, and research regarding the cordycep and reishi species and cancer therapy has been pretty straightforward. They can:

  • Potentially increase survival
  • Help shrink tumors
  • Boost your immune system
  • Reduce radiotherapy and chemotherapy side effects like nausea and hair loss (14)

Of course, these results all depend on which extracts you choose and their concentrations. Some sources even suggest that supplementing with a complementary dose of vitamin C is also necessary.

The Love That Lives Within / Music Therapy to Treat Depression in Children / Friday: Please See Printed Notice Tomorrow

When the Winds of Compassion
blow Lovingly and gently through us,
what we were,
is no more.

Love,
in a single act of Caring,
in one moment of sharing,
gives birth from nothing that was,
to something that lives on and on
in the Sacred Ground
of the Human Heart.

Transformed
into Loving memory,
it restores, sustains, nourishes
what now is,
and will always be.

The Beauty
in a Loving moment
is not in the moment.
It is in us.

Life
offers us only a few
precious moments
to share the Beauty
of our Love.

And
as we embrace the Beauty
which lies within,
we discover that
WE
are our own happiness,
our own Joy.

In a single moment,
the Universe exploded into being,
and set into motion
the birth of everything known
and unseen.

In another moment,
you
can create
an entire Universe of awareness,
of Joy,
of Life,
in the Heart of another.
And in so doing,
breathe Life
into your own Being.

Breath of Life
released by one
is inhaled by another.
And so it is with Love.

What we give
is received.
Our breath is one.
Our Life is one.
And Love,
Love is one.

And we are one
with the Love
of God.
.
“And the Lord God
formed man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils
the breath of Life;
and man became
a living Soul.”

Genesis 2:7

If we could but know,
that every Child is ours,
that every Child is us.
That we are all Sacred Children
of God. .
.

Our Children
are of our Love.
Our Lives
are of the far reaches
of Forever.
And our sins
made of what is given,
to be Forgiven.
.
“For by Grace
you are saved through Faith,
and this is not from yourselves,
it is the Gift of God.”
Ephesians 2:8-9

Many
speak of the incredible Joy
of Salvation
from the clutches of sin,
of the Amazing Grace of God.
.
.
“The frontiers

of the Kingdom of God
were never advanced
by men and women
of caution”

Judi Harbin

Our awareness
of all the Joy
that God desires for us,
will magnify the Love
that lives within
the Compassion
we have for each other.

The contented Heart
is never apart,
never alone,
and always in need.

Evidence has shown that music therapy can address people’s physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs by either creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music.

A recent study conducted at Queen’s University Belfast has revealed that music therapy can effectively treat depression in children and adolescents dealing with emotional, developmental, and behavioral problems. “This study is hugely significant in terms of determining effective treatments for children and young people with behavioral problems and mental health needs.”

Professor Sam Porter, lead researcher from the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen’s University, said in a statement.

Queen’s University
researchers in partnership with the Northern Ireland Music Therapy Trust recruited 251 children and young people with emotional, developmental, and behavioral problems to participate in a study that lasted from March 2011 to May 2014.

Researchers split the sample into two groups, including 128 who received usual care for depression and 123 who received music therapy as well as usual care. The group of children and young people who received musical therapy were able to increase their self-esteem, improve their communicative and interactive skills, and reduce depressive symptoms compared to those who only received usual care.

Follow-ups conducted after the study concluded found that the positive result of music therapy had long-term effects. Researchers are currently collecting data to determine how cost-effective music therapy is compared to other forms of depression treatment. “Music therapy has often been used with children and young people with particular mental health needs, but this is the first time its effectiveness has been shown by a definitive randomized controlled trial in a clinical setting,” said Ciara Reilly, chief executive of the Northern Ireland Music Therapy Trust.

According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, around 11 percent of adolescents exhibit symptoms of depressive disorder before the age of 18. Current treatment methods include costly antidepressant medications and psychotherapy.

The Food and Drug Administration recently placed a “black box” warning label on all antidepressant medications over an increased risk for suicidal thinking.

“The findings are dramatic and underscore the need for music therapy to be made available as a mainstream treatment option,” Reilly added.

“For a long time we have relied on anecdotal evidence and small-scale research findings about how well music therapy works. Now we have robust clinical evidence to show its beneficial effects.”
