How Far Do We Travel? / Eight Things Kids Need To Thrive / Friday: Montgomery Street Antique Mall 

Dedicated
with Love
and Admiration
to my wonderful Friend,
and the best Friend
to everyone he met:

Bob Puryear

Thank You
Bob.

I know of no one
I admire more
than this Beautiful Soul.

You are truly admired.

You Life
is the Language
of God’s Love.

Everyone
appreciates the Beautiful Life and Love
you have dedicated
to the precious Children
of this Earth.

We Love You.

Throughout our Journeys
of Life
and Love,
we wonder
as we wander,
how far
do we travel
to change the Life
we have lived?

May our errors
be quivered
like arrows?

Yes.

With thoughts and deeds,
and words we weave
of nothing
but Love.

My Dear Friends,
our heavy heartaches
and pain,
may now be
blended into
precious cargo.

Our moments of
remembrance
can be molded and shaped
into what it already is,
and what
it was always
meant to be.

We
Children
of an Almighty God,
were created by Love,
to Love.

“Whoever does not Love
does not know God,
because
God is Love.”
1 John 4:8

There is nothing
to fear,
when your Heart
is near,
to Loving thoughts
and deeds
and dreams.
.
The Human Heart
is a vast and deep
Ocean
of wants and desires
and dreams of needs.
But
all
your Heart truly wants
is the Love
that is
you.

It is,
as it was to be,
in Love
with Life.

If
you are hoping
wounds heal,
but they do not,
perhaps
it is because
you are at war
with Love.

And that
is a war
that will never
be won.

The web we weave
of traveled threads
can rend apart.
But,
Hope is Home
to the Heart
set free,
by Love.

Always,
look to Love
as you voyage
and dream.
Give your Love
wings,
and Love will be
as it was meant
to be,
and fly you
Home.

When Hearts speak
louder than words,
Life drifts into
the Dreams we Love,
and Life
becomes our
Dreams.

.Once upon a Time
we closed
our tired eyes,
and met
our very best friends,
the ones
who opened the door
and let you in,
into their Hearts
and into their Lives.
.
The ones,
like Mom and Dad,
who kissed you
when you were very young,
on top of your head,
who said without words
spoken or read,
that Love
Is what we are,
why we are alive,
and the only thing
that should
ever be
said.

                  Keep your eyes on the Sky above.

Under God’s Heavens above
we journey so very far
on the roads of Life.

Keep your eyes
on the Sky above.
Let Love rise,
like the Morning Sun,
and never
let Love depart.

“As I journey through the land, singing as I go,
Pointing Souls to Calvary – to the crimson flow,
Many arrows pierce my Soul from without, within;
But my Lord leads me on,
through Him I must win.

Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His Face,
There to sing forever of His Saving Grace;
On the streets of Glory let me lift my voice,
Cares all past, home at last,
ever to rejoice.

When in service for my Lord
dark may be the night,

But I’ll cling more close to Him,
He will give me Light;

Satan’s snares may vex my Soul,
turn my thoughts aside;

But my Lord goes ahead,
leads whate’er betide.”

                – Rufus H. Cornelius
               Oh, I Want to See Him

“If Life’s essence
is securely hidden,
it may be for a good reason:
should man uncover
many more of its secrets
while he is still Spiritually so immature,
it seems he could do himself
and his World
serious harm.”
Guy Murchie
The Seven Mysteries of Life
An Exploration of Science and Philosophy

There are many stories.
Some
are never read.
Others never written,
and can never be read.

A precious few are created
as your Children
are tucked in bed,
as you kiss them
Goodnight,
on the top
of their head.

And their stories are written
in dreams they have,
where they lay
their little head.

            Hearts speak louder than words.

My Dear Friends,
the Nobility
of the Spirit
resides within.

“And you shall Love
the Lord your God
with all your Heart,
with all your Soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.”
Mark 12:30

We each are clothed
in reflections
all around.
And what we mirror,
tells a story
not our own.
But it is there,
it is to be,
and it remains
for all to see,
Eternally.

And what appears
speaks so loudly,
no one can hear
what voices say,
for this language
is beyond the horizon
of who we are,
what we see,
what we can even imagine
shall ever be.

giraffs

           Who kissed you on top of your head.

It is the Language
of God’s Love
for you
and for me.

And it lives
in the
Dreams we Love,
in reflections all around,
in the mirror
of our Lives,
in a story
that becomes
our own.

Open your Heart
and open your fragile mind.
Accept the Love of God.
Let your Life be
A Love Story.

Let it be.

Let it be.
.
Goodnight.

              In reflections all around.

The eight things kids need to thrive
click here to read more

In an era of aggressive marketing toward kids and parents alike, many parents wonder what kids actually need. Turns out, there’s a pretty clear answer.

“Years of research in child development have identified eight essential requirements for kids to become happy, successful adults,” says Harley Rotbart, MD, a nationally-renowned parenting expert and vice chair emeritus of Pediatrics at Children’s Colorado. “And none of them involve high-tech gadgets, video games or fancy clothes.”

The eight things kids need to thrive

  1. Security

    Kids must feel safe and sound, with their basic survival needs met: shelter, food, clothing, medical care and protection from harm.

  2. Stability

    Stability comes from family and community. Ideally, a family remains together in a stable household, but when that’s not possible, it’s important to disrupt the child’s life as little as possible. Kids and families should be a part of larger units to give them a sense of belonging, tradition and cultural continuity.

  3. Consistency

    No “good cop, bad cop.” Parents should synchronize their parenting and make sure important values stay consistent.

  4. Emotional support

    Parents’ words and actions should encourage kids’ trust, respect, self-esteem and, ultimately, independence.

  5. Love

    Saying and showing you love your kids can overcome almost any parenting “mistakes” you might make. Even when your kids have disobeyed, angered, frustrated and rebelled against you, show them you love them and that you’ll always love them.

  6. Education

    Make sure your kids get the best possible education for their future. This includes school, of course, but it also includes the invaluable life lessons you provide during the time you spend together.

  7. Positive role models

    Parents are their kids’ first and most important role models. Instill your values and teach children empathy by being the kind of person you want them to become.

  8. Structure

    Rules, boundaries, and limits: Without them, kids are forced to be adults before they are ready, and they lose respect for you and other adults.

The “miracle solution”: kids need time

Perhaps the most important factor of all is time. Without enough time to spend with kids and be a parent, “You miss out on the wonderful privileges of parenting,” Dr. Rotbart says. “And kids miss out on some of their needs.”

The converse is also true.

“Time is the miracle solution for most dilemmas of parenthood,” says Dr. Rotbart. “Taken in minutes or hours, the time you spend with your kids gives you the opportunity to provide your kids all their essential needs — and much more.”

Learn Dr. Rotbart’s advice for creating quality time with your kids.

Searching For ALL Our Tomorrows in Yesterday / 12 Truths About Living In an Illusion / Friday: Bureau of Printing and Engraving

“But,
Beloved,
be not ignorant of this one thing,
that one day is with the Lord
as a thousand years,
and a thousand years
as one day.”
 2 Peter 3:8

We all wonder
about Life
in many ways,
as so many days
wander past us
searching,
ever searching
for all our Tomorrows,
in Yesterday.

And when we look
right through us,
we see
the World turning
still.
And we ask –
is this moment
separate and apart
from any other?

Near the end,
are we closer
to the beginning?

“Life
can only be understood
backward,
but it must be lived
forward.”
Soren Kierkegaard

.
Today
and yesterday
define a line
we call Time.
But in reality,
Time, to us, simply compares
two bodies
floating in space,
in which
neither today or yesterday
truly exists.
.
Physicists agree
that Time is one of the most difficult properties
of our Universe to understand.
Yes.
It is difficult
to understand that
which does not
exist.
George Harrison “It’s being here now that’s important.
There’s no past and there’s no future.
Time is a very misleading thing.
All there is ever,
is the now.
We can gain experience from the past,
but we can’t relive it;
and we can hope for the future,
but we don’t know if there is one.”

George Harrison

.We rarely think
about the fundamental nature of Time.
But it is a Human concept,
based on the Earth orbiting around the Sun,
and has no True Universal value.

There is no one simple definition
of Time.
We think it would be easy to understand,
but a real comprehension of Time
has proved to be elusive.
It is a nonspatial continuum
that is measured in terms of events
which succeed one another.
We THINK
of these events
as the past through the present to the future.

    Our Tree of Life has many branches.

We picture Time
flowing like a River,
and we directly experience the flow of that River.
The present we think is objective,
and that everyone shares
in the present moment.
And we assume the present moment
divides everyone’s past from the future.
But the future does not really exist.
Time
is an illusion
and is independent of the presence
of physical objects.

Albert Einstein “Time is
an illusion.”

Albert Einstein

Time is indefinite
– merely the continued progress
of existence
and events WE label
past, present, and future,
which can be regarded
as a
whole.

And,
as the illusion of Time
rewrites every line
of our brief story,
between the lines
we find
so much of what
we truly are,
and what we
may become
in this moment,
we call
Today.

And if
we feel
we need more Time,
would it be a waste of
Time?
If
there is doubt,
will there be
more time
for doubt?
.
Not if our Dreams
become
the pulse of our
Humanity.
My Friend,
there is no Time,
and no such thing as Time,
or the need
for
doubt.
.
Keep dreaming.
And
hold on to Life,
as we venture on
and journey
through the dark
of Night.
For in the end
there will be
Light,
if there is

Love.

.
“Ring the bells that can still ring
forget your perfect offering,
there is a Crack in everything,
that’s how the Light gets in.”
Leonard Cohen
.
Life
is a sequence
of moves
in and out
of the shadows
of our thoughts,
not of Time.
We create the
future
with our new
thoughts.
They evolve
moment by moment
into our new
Reality.
And this new
Life,
like ALL Life,
is Miraculous.
And it is
mirror-aculous.
.
Give a mirror
to a young Child
who has never seen
a mirror before.
He may see
a reflection
of the Sky
and ask,
as a Child is
wont to do:
“Are you
giving me the
Sky?”
To which you
may reply:
“Yes,
and I have given
YOU
the me
in I.”
.
Both
are True.
Life
is a mirror,
reflecting
your inner
World.
.
You
do not see
the World
as it is.
You see it
as YOU
are.
.
What you hold
in your mind,
comes to
Life.
What you hold
in you Heart
is Life.
.
Embrace both
your Heart and your mind,
for the powerful and Beautiful
things that they are.
But don’t try to make one do the job of the other.
Let your Heart decide
and your mind
guide you.
..
“The way
we experience the
World around us
is a direct reflection
of the World
within us.”
Ritu Ghatourey
.
We
are playing a
game
called Life,
in which we
are unaware
of the rules.

“Make your Heart
like a Lake,
with calm, still surface,

and great depths of kindness.”
Lao Tzu
.
A child
needs to be taught
how to calmly reflect upon
Life
and our Beautiful place
in it.
.
You
can Truly Bless a Child
with an atmosphere of calm and reflection
and with soothing musical experiences.
In this day of unrest on every level of Life,
this Blessing,
of calm and patient reflection,
will be appreciated more than words
can ever express.
And
it may save
the Life
of your precious Child.
We cannot see
our reflection
in running water.
It is only
a still water
in which we can see
ourselves.
Only
in the calm
of the moment,
can we truly reflect upon
the moment.
.
.“The Sun is only shining like it always does.
But I never noticed it in the Sky before.
I will write it on the walls of the World
So that the Sun won’t fade away
the words I say
to you –
I Love you.”

Mike Batt

Our Tree of Life
has many branches
and complex Truths about
our Nature.
Its nourishment from our Mother Earth
empowers us,
and forms a connection
to all that came
before.
.
Branches reach out
to accept the nourishment of the Sun.
And the Leaves capture that nourishment
and savor and cherish it,
transforming it into
Life.
.
WE
are like Beautiful Leaves
on the Tree
of Life.
.
And our brief and Precious Existence
connects us
to the Sanctity of our Spirit,
as we journey toward
growth and understanding.

Yes,
our
Tree of Life
has many branches that reach high into the Sky
and roots that dig deep
into our Mother Earth.
And these join
into the endless circle
of our Being.

“Time stops
when Love recognizes
that it is eternity.
Douglas G. Rivela

.

And THAT,
My Dear Friend,
is what Time truly is.
IT  IS  LOVE.

Have you never noticed
that Time stops
when you are in
LOVE ?
.
God
is Love.
He is
Eternal Love.
.
“Whoever does not
Love

does not know God,
because
God is
Love.”

1 John 4:8
.

While in your Mother’s Womb,
she Dreamed about
YOU.

And like the Dream
of you,
many Dreams come true.
But when she looked
into your eyes,
she realized,
God
Dreams too.

ALL
of our Tomorrows
are here
to dissolve into
Yesterday –
a precious Gift
to manifest into
Light and Wonder.
.
“We sit,
look back at the time.

The starry sky displays the slides
of our togetherness.
We are in the realm of
Love,

where the law of space-time fails.
And I gently whisper,
Love,
we are beyond.”
Hrisha Paul

We can explore
Infinity
by exploring the limits
of our known
Universe
a vast array of more than
two Trillion Galaxies,
expanding at the outer edges
faster than the speed
of Light.

What lies beyond
Infinity,
is Spiritual.
It is the realization
of God’s Infinite
Love.

“May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be Righteous
May you grow up to be True
May you always know the Truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay forever young.

Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your Heart always be Joyful
May your song always be sung
And may you stay forever
young.

Forever young,
forever young.”

Bob Dylan, Jim Cregan, Kevin Savigar, Rod Stewart

Yes,
God is Love!
And Love is
Time.

Goodnight.

12 Truths About Living In an Illusion
by Vernon Layne

read more

Here are twelve common truths that you’re living in an illusion:

1. You see the present through your past. Your past plays an important role in your life.  It’s there to teach you what you could have done differently or what you need to continue doing. THAT’S ALL.  It’s not there for wallowing in or condemnation. We fall short of His Glory so it’s important you learn to give yourself a break. Let go of your past and not become its prisoner then it will be easier for you to put things in its proper perspective.

2. You believe you can control things that are uncontrollable.  Stop trying to control people and situations. One of life’s most important lessons is learning to give up the illusion of control. You may wonder how you suppose to give that up, but the fact is you were never in control. The moment you think you’re in control is the moment you’re out of control.

3. You only see the bad in yourself and others. If you ask someone to list things about themselves most will list liabilities. People have a hard time seeing the good within themselves.  Not finding the good in you makes it impossible to see the good in others.

That’s why it’s important to take a complete self-assessment and list your access along with your liabilities and accept what you find. When you do this everyone wins. You win because you begin to grow and others win because they are encouraged to grow from watching you.

man living an illusion

4. You believe everything you feel and think. Imagine being judged inaccurately by two people who don’t know you. Believing everything you feel and think is just like listening to two people gossip. Your feelings aren’t facts. Don’t believe everything you think and feel because they can influence you to make unwise decisions. Learn to make decisions from facts and not feeling.

5. You search for fulfillment through things. The only person you can’t run away from is yourself. There’s nothing wrong with trying to get things in life but don’t lose yourself in the process by not understanding why you’re doing it. When the chase for things becomes more important than your family and your health, then it’s a destructive rush that’s causing harm. Most of the time you’re trying to fill a void or block a feeling when you’re searching for fulfillment in things.

6. Your self-worth comes from social media. All your life you wanted to belong and fit in, so you spend a lot of time on social media– yet never quite measuring up. The more likes you get the better you feel. The reality you need to hear and afraid to admit is when you’re not getting those likes you think you should be getting, you feel down almost depressed. Depending on social media to feel relevant is an illusion many people believe.

7. You think your happiness is your mate’s responsibility. It’s not fair to your mate when you expect them to be responsible for your happiness. They’re there to add to your happiness. It’s your responsibility to see that you’re happy. It’s not healthy and it doesn’t work when one partner isn’t responsible for his own feeling, thoughts and actions.  A healthy relationship is when a couple can grow in unity while at the same time growing as individuals, so take ownership of your own happiness.

8. You’re convinced everything supposed to go your way.  Self-centeredness is at the core of self-deception. It can create an illusion that you’re right and the world is wrong base on a feeling or an idea. You began to see yourself as a victim. Understand that everyone experiences life challenges and that you’re not the only one. To see things clearly bring your attitude in line with reality.

9.  You think you don’t need help. Most people, myself included, believed at some point in their life that they could do it all bystart living a new life themselves. This kind of thinking doesn’t work very well. The only guarantee you will get is being frustrated and exhausted.

We are here to help and support one another. Your life will be enhanced when you’re able to see people as a gift from God. Take the time and get to know the gifts God have given you by learning to trust others, reaching out to others, and admitting your need for others.

10. You believe you can’t change. It’s important to examine this false belief because it may not be yours. You could have picked it up from your parents. I know this may sound a little harsh but some parents tell their children self-defeating things. Not all illusions come from you. Some are created by others.

11. You think your success is because of the work you’ve done. Don’t become a legend in your own mind. As you begin to experience success in life it’s important to give credit where credit is due. Selfishly claiming what belongs to God is the quickness way to lose it all. Pride usually comes before the fall so give the Glory to God.

12. You feel you’re alone. I call this the ultimate illusion. The next time you’re by yourself look around you. Feel the air. Go outside and watch the squirrels chase each other. Look up and see the clouds move gracefully. God’s presence is all around you. You are never alone.

Foolish dreamers live in a world of illusion;
wise realist plant their feet
on the ground.
(Proverbs 14:18.)

 

The Most Beautiful Of All Things / This Week: Spring Break

Only the rarest have the courage
to be the most Beautiful of all things –
themselves.
But,
who are we?

“What exists is out of reach
and very deep.

Who can fathom it?
Ecclesiastes 7-24

The fact that Human Beings
are a speck of dust on a tiny planet
in a regular galaxy and in a Universe of countless Galaxies,
can lead us to the illusion
of Humans being a small and insignificant Creation.
But our Spirit and our Soul and our Mind
is unlimited by the grandeur
of our God given
insight and imagination.

O, the depth of the riches of the Wisdom and Knowledge of God.

Researchers have now established
something new about Quantum Entanglement,
one of the central principles of quantum physics,
where objects separated by great distance
can instantaneously affect each other’s behavior.

Although it is highly misunderstood,
and shall remain so,
you can meet someone who can physically feel
what you are feeling.
Such is Love.

We love to explore the ways in which all of us are connected
– more literally than we can ever realize.

Yes,
My Dear Friends,
we are Truly one,
and one with
God.

“Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my Heart.
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night Waking or sleeping,
Thy presence my Light
Be Thou my Wisdom,
and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me,
Lord Thou my Great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling,
and I with Thee
one.”
8th century Irish hymn

We are all subject to the same laws of Nature,
much of which we know virtually nothing about.
But, we are learning more and more.
It now appears to some physicists
that an
expanding fourth dimension
gives rise to non-local phenomena and quantum entanglement,
as the expanding fourth dimension
means that two events separated in the three spatial dimensions
can yet appear to be at the exact same place
in the fourth dimension.

Using 186,282.397 miles per second for the speed of light, we can calculate that the milky way galaxy is roughly 587,784,644,235,761,200 (about 600 quadrillion) miles wide. Astronomers have found that the universe contains at least 2 trillion Galaxies, ten times more than previously thought. Current astronomical technology allows us to study just 10% of these galaxies, and the remaining 90% will be only seen once bigger and better telescopes are developed. It is probable that the number of Galaxies is infinite.                   “O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder. Thy power throughout the Universe displayed. Then sings my Soul, my Savior God, to Thee. How great Thou art, how great Thou art.”                               

The time measured on your watch
– the ticking seconds –
is not the fourth dimension,
but a phenomenon that emerges
because the fourth dimension is expanding
relative to the three spatial dimensions.

Because time is an emergent, moving phenomenon
resulting from the fourth dimension expanding
relative to the three spatial dimensions,
the diverse phenomena of relativity, quantum mechanics,
and statistical mechanics are accounted for.

A balloon analogy,
(i.e. the direction which is perpendicular to the balloon’s surface
and which allows us to see the balloon’s curvature)
is the equivalent of the FOURTH expanding dimension
in our Universe.

And I set my mind to seek and explore by wisdom
all that is done under Heaven.
What a heavy burden God has laid
on the sons of men,
to keep them occupied!”

Ecclesiastes 1:13

Time
has a definitive arrow because
the fourth dimension is expanding
relative to the three spatial dimensions.

The expansion distributes locality into nonlocality,
so that even as two photons travel apart from a common origin,
they yet remain entangled
as they share a common locality
exalted by the fourth expanding dimension.

This Moving Dimensions Theory
answers the question of why we cannot travel back in time,
why we cannot find our way back to yesterday.
Time is a phenomena that emerges
because the fourth dimension is expanding relative
to everything else.

Theory is all the more impressive
if it aligns with the greater simplicity of its premise.
The more different kinds of things it relates to,
– quantum mechanics, relativity, time’s arrow, entanglement,
non-locality, the second law of thermodynamics,
– the more extended is its area of applicability.

The Omniscience of God suffers apparent paradoxes due to the limitations of the Human mind.

Entanglement could be ‘recycled’
to increase the efficiency of connections.
As reported in the journal Physical Review Letters,
the result could take us one step closer to
teleportation in the future.

Interestingly,
Einstein believed that the quantum description of nature
was accurate with respect to what could be observed.
He thought that entanglement suggested the existence
of hidden “elements of reality”
that quantum math did not account for.

God’s Ways are
Mysterious.

“When I applied my mind to know Wisdom and to observe the activity that one does on the Earth
– though his eyes do not see sleep day or night –
I saw every work of God,
and that a man is unable to comprehend
the work that is done under the sun.
Despite his efforts to search it out,
he cannot find its meaning;
even if the wise man claims to know,
he is unable to comprehend.

Ecclesiastes 16-17

My Friends,
there is more to reality than the observable Universe.
There is far, far more

than we can ever comprehend.
There are things fundamental to reality hiding in plain sight.
String theory states there must be at least 10 dimensions of space
plus one dimension for time.
But there are probably more, many more,
and are just as real, if not more real,
than the dimensions we can see.
These dimensions are intertwined so tightly
and too small for us to notice.
And
some dimensions may be
dimensions within dimensions.

Yes,
we know of 11 space dimensions.
But how many dimensions exist?
Some physicists say 26 dimensions,
consistent with interpreting the strings
as the degrees of freedom
of the World Lines of the
Many-Worlds Quantum Theory.
That’s the number according to
Bosonic string theory.

To be filled with the fullness of God is dependent upon our comprehension of the “dimensionsof God’s love.
God is not restricted in time and space as man is.
God exists in dimensions greater than our time and space,
His “time” beyond dimensions,
which may explain the seeming “paradox”
of predestination vs. free will.

Spatial descriptions do not apply to Him.
God is pre-existent, Eternal, with no beginning and no end.
(Revelation 22:13).
He is existence,
and without Him
nothing else can exist.

Please reflect on the reality
of God’s Infinite Love
for all Humanity.
His Love
encompasses all dimensions,
for
God is Love.
(1 John 4:8)

“He has made everything Beautiful in its time.
He has also set Eternity in the Hearts of men,
yet they cannot fathom the work
God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

     He has made everything Beautiful.

One team of scientists
have devised a generalized form of teleportation,
which allows for a wide variety of potential applications
in quantum physics.
Teleportation
may be required to traverse
the unfathomably vast distances
in our Universe.

Once considered impossible,
in 1993 a team of scientists calculated that teleportation
could work in principle
using quantum laws.
Quantum teleportation harnesses the ‘entanglement’ law
to transmit particle-sized bites of information
across potentially vast distances
in an instant.

Yes,
entanglement has been proven to be a very real feature
of our Universe,
and one that has extraordinary potential
to advance all manner of scientific endeavor.
But now,
we must ask ourselves:
just because we can do something,
should we?

Goodnight.

The Most Beautiful One of All / Get Smart: Go Dirty. The advantages of getting down and dirty / Friday: At School

A Mother’s Love is from Above.

The Cradle of Life
is Love’s
Pure Light –
the Tide that caresses
the shores
of God’s Desire.

For a Mother’s Love,
is from
Above.
It is
God,
the Giver of Life,
sustainer of Love.

“God is
Love.”
1 John 4:8 and 1 John 4:16
and expressed many times in other Scriptures.

               The Tide that caresses.

All you need
to be truly happy,
is the Heart
of a Child.
And,
you have one.
We are ALL
Children of God.

Yes,
Birth is the beginning.
And death,
a sign
we carry on.
For deep
within the Human Heart,
dwells the Eternal
Soul.

In the swirling darkness,
nothing existed.
Space and time itself
were absent.
But in that place,
in which there was no space,
in a time without measure,
God existed,
and Will Exist.

God is not confined by space and time.
He simply is.
He exists beyond
all that we can know
or see.
Yes,
He simply is.
His Substance, His Nature, and very Being
is that of utter
simplicity.

His Being transcends all.
For He created reality
and filled our shell of existence
with the countless Stars,
Universes and Galaxies,
emerging from the simple words,
“Let it be.”

Eric Cockrell

“God is the power
between two hands that touch,

the birth of a child, the death of an old man.
the longing we were born with that drives us on…
the courage to enter the realm of the Heart.
true communion, true dialogue,
the bridge over our fears.
the wings of the sparrow,
the bud sleeping through winter.
the decision of Forgiveness,
that which is given without asking back.
the healing power of silence,
the Eternity in each moment.
God is diversity bound by responsibility.
the power of peace, the moment of listening,
the sound of your own Heartbeat calling you home.
the Spirit that inhabits the body
doing the work of compassion…
God simply ‘is’…”
Eric Cockrell

Yes,
our Creator thought
everything that is
into existence.
At the very core of reality,
and beyond the physical Universe.
it is the Mind of God
from which we emerged,
and we are
still emerging.

    Beyond the physical Universe.

We go to sleep
with the Dream,
and awake
with the reality,
we often think
is more
than a Dream.

But our Dreams
can also come alive,
when we close our eyes
to see,
a Vision of Humanity
the way
it should be –
with Love
in close proximity.

“My son,
give me your Heart
and let your eyes
delight in My Ways.”
Proverbs 23:26

    A Sunrise that can stay.

Within
the measure of
this Day,
lies a Sunrise
that can stay
sparkling in your eyes.
For the setting
of Love’s Sun
is never
to be realized.

“Your Sun will never set;
your moon will not go down.
For the LORD
will be your everlasting Light.”
Isaiah‬ ‭60:20‬

Only our Father
in Heaven Above
can count the Stars
at night,
and keep them
very bright.
And where
Earth and Sky meet,
there
we can find a Purity
of things:
for we are more
than Human,
we are Blessed Beings,
born of God,
and re-born
of a Savior.
We are,
and always will be,
Blessed.

  God is the birth of a Child.

“Oh Lord
we pay the price with a

Spin of a wheel – with the roll of a dice.
Ah yeah, you pay your fare.
And if you don’t know where you’re going,
Any road will take you there.”
George Harrison

Countless,
are the Miracles
we as a species,
have seen.
and YOU,
my Friend,
are the most
Beautiful One
of all.

Goodnight.

Get Smart: Go Dirty

The advantages of getting down and dirty.

by

Matthew J. Edlund M.D.

Click here to read more

To prevent cancer, change early childhood education. Not the book-kind, but  the biologically intelligent kind. If you do, you might change the incident of type I diabetes, asthma, peanut allergies, and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

That’s the conclusion drawn by Mel Greaves of the Institute of Cancer Research in London, and now many other researchers. Decades of varied studies demonstrate that the immune system learns in a specific way.  Give it the right education and it learns new ways that not just help fight cancer but prevent many major diseases.

The main teaching tool is dirt – especially dirty kids.

The ALL Story

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) is very important in the history of oncology. Affecting primarily children, it was the first tumor to truly be “cured” by treatment, starting in the late 1950s. Now it’s pointing the way to not just cancer treatment, but prevention.

Greaves believes, and many agree, that ALL is environmentally regulated. But not by power plants and wires or internet use – by childhood play.

The idea is that ALL first starts with a mutation that affects perhaps five percent of kids. If they much later develop a certain kind of infection, generally a viral flu or cold, they develop another mutation which sets them up for ALL. But if in the first few years of life they encounter many kinds of infections, from adults and other children, and get to play in the dirt, they don’t get ALL.

Get the right infections at the right time, and you don’t get cancer. The immune system has to learn a trick or two, and it needs a dirty environment to do it.

And that’s not just true for ALL.

Exposure and Learning

It’s been known for a long time that kids on farms have far less asthma than city kids not exposed to the many antigens (immune stimulating substances) found in agriculture. For many years researchers were stumped by why MS was more common in affluent communities that poorer ones. Greaves looked at ALL and saw a familiar pattern: very low rates in the poorest countries with less fastidious early hygienic practices.

There were major outliers. One was Costa Rica. Not very rich, but with lots of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Type I Diabetes, and ALL.

But Costa Rica had spent much of his health dollars on an extensive health care system. With economic development, family sizes decreased by nearly seventy percent. There were a lot less siblings around, and much greater social pressure to maintain a “first world” kind of home.

So it was time to extend the hypothesis, and at animal experiments. Greaves and others created genetically modified mice with an ALL inducing mutation. Those kept in sterile conditions and let out in a “dirty” environment developed cancer. Those kept in normal conditions, did not.

This doesn’t mean all infants should immediately spend most of their lives in the community sandbox.

Smart Body

Biological Intelligence, how your body creates and uses knowledge, is a neglected subject. One reason is that most of biological learning does not involve language or books, or cognitive matters.  The textbook for your immune system, your heart, your lungs, your muscles, is the place where you live.  And most of that learning will not be conscious. Just as you don’t see your immune system destroy potentially fatal tumor cells, you don’t watch your arm muscles learn to throw a baseball.  Most of what goes on in your brain isn’t conscious.

Just vital to your survival and enjoyment of life.

ALL, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, asthma, MS, all seem to have a similar story to tell about biological intelligence. Their teachings include:

  1. You learn very different things in different environments, including “standard” cognitive learning. Putting students into three carrels to study for an economics test, rather than just one for the same study period, improved scores. Much of school learning is affected by “unconscious” environmental factors.
    .
  2. Sequence counts. Encounter a virus early in life and it may prevent you from getting MS when you’re forty.
    .
  3. Education starts at birth. Being around other infants does not just educate kids socially but immunologically, physically, and mentally.  Our sociality as a species has many health implications throughout our lives.
    .
  4. The present fascination with “germ free” environments can be overplayed. Bacteria and viruses are not just on table tops and kitchen sinks.  They’re everywhere. Outside of the many nasty pathogens found in hospitals that are now bacterially resistant, you may not need to scour your desks and doorknobs all the time. Our fascination with “germ free” environments may be creating more antibiotic resistance at a time when our antibacterial armamentarium is highly compromised.  And what really counts may not prove what pathogens we constantly run, but the robustness and flexibility of our immune response.
    .
  5. Perhaps the most important teaching is that health is learned. The environment changes, we change. All the actions of our lives are potential teaching moments.  All of them can make us smarter.

A smart body is often well served by exposure to many different environments, with different physical, mental, social and spiritual elements. That’s not just true of politics. It’s also part of what helps you survive.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blaise Pascal
Pensées VII(425)

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

There is
no other reason
that it beats.

Go where your Heart leads you.

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

So go
where your Heart
leads you.
And be.

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

“Love
is an exclusive reality

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

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

Rivers running
deep
know how we feel.

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

Do not neglect
the beautiful destiny
God desires for
YOU.

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

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

   Do so in the name of Love.

A Philosophy
of Love
is a declaration for
truly living.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Man’s kidneys are relatively poor
water conservers

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

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

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

Dr. Phillip Bishop

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

Yes,
Listen.

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

      Let a flower pick you.

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

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

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

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

Goodnight.

                        They live for Love.

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

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

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

                To be truly alive, live for LOVE!

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

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

Life is a Celebration / You are One With the Universal Mind / Electric Cars / Friday Trip: Modern Art Museum

         In the face of EACH creature                                I see my Creator.

Our acts
of Human kindness
bring God’s presence
into our World.

In our search
for Truth,
Ultimate Truth,
we may one day discover
that the Love
felt deeply within
our Human Heart
IS
the very
presence of God.

Love
is a description of God,
because
God is Love.
This is what He is,
and what
He will always be.

Whoever does not Love
does not know God,
because God is Love.”
1 John 4:8

                                I am alive.

To proclaim
that I am alive
in every moment,
is
to absolutely know
that God is with you
each and every
day.

In that existential
time,
you will know
you are not
alone.
And this knowledge
can Enrich your Life
and Ennoble
death.

The shadow
of who you are
can never

  reflect a lighter shade of pale,
if you choose
to Live,
giving all
you can give.

Stand up
for the Miracle you are.
Live in the Faith
God has in You.
And follow the Dream
that lies ahead,
the Dream
God has for
YOU.

Immortality
awaits me and you.

  But the Vision and the Fire
of Life
is a Dream
yet unfulfilled.

                  Enrich your Life and Ennoble death.

Only
a free person
has the strength
to benefit
Humanity.
And
only a strong person
has the freedom
to free
others.

These attributes
emanate from
profound intellectual rigor,
suppleness of mind
and audacious
courage,
to loudly proclaim:
“I shall not
Live my Life
in vain.”

                             You are not alone.

Our History
offers glimpses of great
Heroism and Dignity,
which illuminate
the Human condition.
These moments
are precious in Time.
THEY
must be shared.

Do not be
inaccessible.
YOU
are what your child
truly possesses.
Ultimately,
you will be what,
in memory,
remains.

Open wide
the Heart.
The great Love
contained within
can only cast
a mere shadow,
if inside
you are burdened,
thinking,
“I am only
me”.

No.
YOU are every generation,
this day
and yesterday,
and all
there is to be,
from the beginning
of our Creation,
to the end.
You are
everyone
you know
or will ever meet.
YOU
are the greatest Gift
your child
will inherit,
or ever, ever see.

You
are the overarching
Miracle of Creation,
the all encompassing
Perfection
of Universal physical law,
reflect of the ALL powerful
Creative Force
that brought you
into Being.

God
has truly Blessed you,
far, far beyond Belief.

        You are the overarching Miracle of Creation

My Friends,
we find Compassion
in the Knowledge
of God’s Eternal Embrace.
And we find Refuge
in the Shelter of God’s
Loving Grace.

This Love,
the Love of God
that dwells within,
is the Divine birthright
of ever generation
that ever was,
and remains.

Parents
are the instruments
of God
used to bring Life
into Being.
And our mission
is to parent with
God
in perfecting
the Beautiful Work
of His Creation.

Life
is a celebration,
a revolution,
a Divine Revelation.

Goodnight.

“Life in ALL its
forms,
is Sacred;
in the face
of EACH creature
I see my
Creator.”
– Rabi Lawrence Kushner

            Life, in ALL its forms, is Sacred.

They say that when a man is born
– the sky is falling Soul
and breaks into two parts.
One part goes to the women
and one for men.
The meaning of Life
is to find the other half.
Catches of his own soul.”

Anna Aisha

                  YOU are what your child possesses.

You are One With the Universal Mind

By Tania Kotsos
read more

There is a single, intelligent Consciousness
that pervades the entire Universe
– the Universal Mind.
It is all knowing, all powerful, all creative and always present.
As it is present everywhere at the same time,
it follows that it must also be present in you
– that it is you.
Your mind is part of the one Universal Mind.
This is not simply a philosophical ideal
passed down to us through the ages.
It is an exact scientific truth.
Know it, believe it, apply it
and you will see your life transform
in miraculous ways.

Albert Einstein told us that “everything is energy”;
that “a human being is a part of the whole
called by us [the] Universe”.
His words echoed the most ancient of Spiritual and philosophical teachings and still underpin today’s
cutting-edge scientific discoveries.

The Universal Mind goes by many names.
In the scientific world we know of the Unified Field,
in spiritual philosophy we refer to The All or Universal Consciousness and in religion we call upon God,
who Himself goes by many names.
The name is relevant only in so far
as it resonates with you.

Whichever way you cut it,
you come to this one unavoidable conclusion:
there is but One Consciousness
of which your consciousness must be a part
and “a part”,
as Charles Haanel said,
“must be the same in kind and quality as the whole,
the only difference being one of degree”.

The nature of the Universal Mind
is Omniscience (all knowing),
Omnipotence (all powerful),
Omnificence (all creative)
and Omnipresence (always present).

Know
that this too is
your nature.

What Dreams May Come:
a story of LOVE and devotion
that transcends the bonds

ELECTRIC CARS
from revelationforex.com

Dyson, the engineering company best known for its vacuum cleaners and fans, plans to spend £2bn developing a “radical” electric car.

The battery-powered vehicle is due to be launched in 2020.

Dyson says 400 staff have been working on the secret project for the past two years at its headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.

However, the car does not yet exist, with no prototype built, and a factory site is yet to be chosen.

Sir James declined to give further details of the project. “Competition for new technology in the automotive industry is fierce and we must do everything we can to keep the specifics of our vehicle confidential,” he told staff in an email.

Important points that are undecided or secret include the firm’s expected annual production total, the cost of the car, or its range or top speed.

Sir James said about £1bn would be spent on developing the car, with another £1bn on making the battery.
Analysis: Richard Westcott, BBC transport correspondent

It was a slightly unusual launch, but then, Sir James Dyson likes to be different.

In a small room above his swanky London shop he told us about his vision for a clean car.

First up, we were treated to an old clip of Blue Peter, from the 90s, where Anthea Turner interviewed him about his new device to clean soot from the exhaust of diesel vehicles… it was the cyclone from his vacuum cleaner, put to a different use.

“That is how long I have wanted to do this,” he told us.

In fact he first hatched the idea in the late 1980s.

Since then, he has developed motors and batteries and now he is able to bring all that expertise together in a new, electric car.

He promised that it will be radical and different, because, as he put it, what is the point of making it like any other car?

And he promised that it will not be cheap.

I did ask how much it would be to put down a deposit… he told me he would have to think about it.

Further development work will take place at a former RAF base at Hullavington in Wiltshire, where staff will move to in February.

Sir James also said that his firm’s car would look “radical and different”, but will not be aimed at the mass market.

The motor is designed and ready to go, he said, but the firm is still designing the car.

Dyson’s decision means it is joining the rush within the global car industry to develop and make electric cars.

Some manufacturers such as Nissan, Tesla, Renault, BMW and Hyundai already manufacture them.

Others such as VW, Volvo, Mercedes, Honda and Jaguar Land Rover have announced plans to sell electric or hybrid versions of their existing petrol and diesel engine ranges.

VW, for instance, plans to spend 20bn euros (£17.5bn) by 2030 to develop its battery powered vehicles.

Sir James said he had been interested since 1990 in developing filtration technology to stop vehicle diesel emissions polluting the environment.

But as the motor industry had shown no interest in adopting this idea, he would instead join the fast-growing trend to make electric vehicles.
Analysis: Theo Leggett, BBC business correspondent

The electric car market is growing rapidly, but it is also about to become a lot more crowded.

Within the next few years, many new models are due to come on to the market, including Jaguar’s Ipace, Porsche’s Mission E, Volkswagen’s I.D. family and Mercedes’ EQ range. Tesla also has big plans for its recently launched Model 3.

They will be joining established models such as the Nissan Leaf, the BMW i3, the Renault Zoe and the Tesla Model S.

Dyson clearly sees an opportunity here. As new designs become available, and prices come down, more consumers will be willing to try electric vehicles.

Policymakers, concerned about air pollution, want them to do just that.

The big question is whether Dyson can muscle in on territory that the major manufacturers are already trying to make their own. And let’s not forget Google’s designs on the electric/self-driving market.

Tesla was able to build a new car brand from scratch, but only by producing a design which effectively moved the goalposts and changed people’s expectations of what an electric car could provide.

If Dyson wants to play with the big boys, it may have to pull off a similar trick.

Fruit on the Vine / Cancer Dies When You Eat These Five Foods / Pesticide Soaked Fruits and Vegetables / Friday: Museum of the Americas

“Anyone
who does not Love
does not know God,
because God is Love
.”
– 1 John 4:8

                             Today is never over.

The Fruit
of all our Love,
is still hanging
on the Vine.

The Promise of
Evermore
confounds the senses
on the road to Belief.
For we
accept the perceived as inevitable
and think the seemingly impossible
is never
to be.

We live and we trust
that Tomorrow
can Forever be,
and that never,
never more will we see.
Such is the Nature
of Life
longing
to Be,
not fully aware
that from whence
Life came,
and where it will
be,
was ever known.

“For I know
the plans I have for you,

declares the Lord,
plans for welfare and not for evil,
to give you a future
and a HOPE.”
Jeremiah 29:11

And now doubt
can come from
afar
no more.
Our time
is not
our time.
Today
is never really over.
For in Faith,
the Light of Day is
over and over,
again and again.
This Sun
never sets.

“The LORD
will be your permanent source of Light –
the Splendor of your God will shine upon you.
Your sun will no longer set,
your moon will not disappear;
The LORD
will be your permanent source of light;
your time of sorrow will be over.”
Isaiah 60:19-20

Day
is never night.
And night,
is not the Light
of any
day.

“This is the message
we have heard from Him
and declare to you:
God is Light;
in Him
there is NO darkness
at all.”
1 John 1:5

With words
that penetrate
like arrows,
what
would be said
in Love,
we seemingly cannot
say
enough.
What
could be done,
appears
to have already
been done.
And we think
Love
a Song unsung.

            His Words will warm and calm you.

But the night
of our lives
awakens to the
dawn.
And
we hear the music
that is
our Life,
a beautiful Song,
we sing our
whole Life
long.

And death,
death never comes
to the end
of this magnificent Song,
the Music
of the Spheres.

God
is in His
Heaven
and in your
Heart.
All
is right
Believing.

For the Light
of His Love
is always
Shinning.

“We Love
because He first
Loved us.”
1 John 4:19

Millions of Angles
are singing,
at the thought
of your Love
bringing
HOPE
to the Heart
of someone
in need.

“Therefore,
since we have been
justified by FAITH,

we have PEACE with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through Him we have also obtained
access by FAITH

into this Grace in which we stand,
and we rejoice in HOPE of the Glory of God.
More than that,
we rejoice in our sufferings,
knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character,
and character produces HOPE,
and Hope does not put us to shame,
because God’s Love
has been poured into our Hearts
through the Holy Spirit
who has been given to us.”
Romans 5:1-21

His Words
will warm
and calm you.

I Pray
you will share
God’s Love,
in your Lifetime,
beginning today,
when tomorrow
was yesterday.

                     Share God’s Love.

Close your
eyes in Prayer.
Use the dark
to see,
with the Light
of Understanding,
the Eternal Light
of God’s Love,
the bright
of which
never blinds and distorts
you and me.

  Use the dark to see.

My Dear Friends,
there is
always a war
raging.
But it is not
for the ground
upon which you
stand,
the price of which
has already
been paid,
not for the reasons
that surround,
and confound
you.
No,
it is for the Spirit
that dwells
within.
But Fear
NOT.

“The Lord is my Light and my Salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my Life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
it is THEY who stumble and fall.

Though an army encamp against me,
my Heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
yet I will be confident.
One thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the House of the Lord
all the days of my Life,
to gaze upon the Beauty of the Lord
and to inquire in His Temple.
For He will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble;
He will conceal me under the Cover of His Tent;
He will lift me HIGH upon a rock.”
Psalm 27:1-14

Now,
close your eyes gently
in Prayer.
And know that God
is with you
and Loves YOU,
so much more
than words mere,
can ever share.

“Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky
All is well, safely rest
God is nigh.”
Melodious Monk

Goodnight.

                             ALL is well.

Cancer Dies
When You Eat These Five Foods.
It’s Time To Start Eating Them

in Overall Health by

Cancer is many faceted, and generally treated with big pharma products, like chemicals, radiation, and chemotherapy. What if there were foods that naturally killed cancer, though?

Fortunately for you and us, there are. And we’re here to tell you about those foods, including our five favorites, foods which naturally fight cancer cells and help keep them from feeding – and consequently help keep the cancer from growing.

 1. THE BLUEBERRY & RASPBERRY EFFECT

Blueberries and raspberries are plants that are well known by their anti – cancer capabilities, especially when it comes to ovarian cancer. Phytochemicals are the reason why they have their dark hue and the secret of their effectiveness, which are proven to be great for cancer prevention. Furthermore, blueberries and raspberries are also known to have a decreasing effect on oxidative stress and angiogenesis.

2. COFFEE AND GREEN TEA

Besides the fact that both coffee and green tea, are the most popular daily consummated drinks, they decrease the chances of cancer development.

3. THE TOMATO EFFECT

 According to recent Harvard research, there is up to 50% reduction in chances for prostate cancer in people who regularly ate cooked tomatoes. It was proven that tomatoes are incredibly effective in inhibiting the angiogenesis, and the reason why this fruit is so effective is that they contain high amounts of a substance called lycopene, which has strong anti – angiogenic properties.

Experts explain that lycopene is easily distributed through the body’s digestion system due to the fact it breaks down in our bodies’ fat. In addition, lycopene concentration increases when it is subjected to higher temperatures. That is why cooked tomatoes are very effective when it comes to stopping cancer growth.

4. DARK CHOCOLATE

For many people this is almost unbelievable. Dark chocolate is an incredibly tasty desert, which also happens to be incredibly healthy to eat, because it is good for you heart condition, your overall happiness, but also for fighting cancer cells.

5. TURMERIC

This plant has various health benefits, and it is well known by the effectiveness in fat reduction, turmeric is also used as a preventive measure against cancer.

The Top Five Pesticide Soaked Fruits and Vegetables

With such a striking level of pesticides on each of these “conventional” produce items, it would be wise to avoid them entirely (even though most people buy them non-organic without second thought):

1. ApplesPerhaps the most notable inclusion on this list is the apple, considering its reputation as a health food, and the lack of organic apple orchards for that matter. The vast majority of apple orchards remain “conventional,” and yet American apples were recently banned in Europe by regulators.

Over 47 pesticide residues were found in conventional apples by the USDA’s pesticide data program in 2010. Doesn’t exactly make for a healthy cup of apple juice now, does it?

 2. CeleryIt may be a negative calorie food but with a total of 64 different pesticide residues found by the PDP in 2008 including 12 different neurotoxins and 10 known carcinogens according to this article from the Center for Food Safety, conventional celery should lose its distinction as a health food. Such chemical cocktails will sabotage your metabolism in the long run, so go organic.

3. StrawberriesPesticides with negative effects on the brain and nervous system have been found in spades on strawberries, with 45 total pesticide residues found by the PDP in 2009.

Organic strawberries are especially pricier but well worth the investment; buy them in season and freeze to save big money.

4. PeachesThe soft skin of peaches combined with the amount of chemicals they’re treated with could spell serious trouble for your health.

A 2008 study by the PDP found 62 different pesticide residues on conventional peaches; several are considered as neurotoxins and/or known carcinogens. While you can wash some of the residue off much of it remains in the soft flesh and skin of the peach.

5. GrapesThe fourth and final fruit on the list, grapes have been found with 56 different pesticide residues as of 2010, including four developmental or reproductive toxins linked to fertility problems and even miscarriages.

That means that wine drinkers should be especially careful not overdo it, especially in its non-organic form.

Final Thoughts:

You can easily find most of these top five most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables in just about everyone’s kitchen in one form or another, and that’s what makes them so dangerous to our health.

Don’t forget to share this information with your friends who still falsely consider these pesticide-soaked fruits and vegetables to be health foods.
