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.)

 

To Make The Meaning of Life Come True / Significant Scientific Discoveries / Friday: Fossil Mania in Glenrose

To make the meaning of Life
come true,
open your mind
and your precious Heart,
to receive
the Love you
give.
Radiate the Love
you truly feel.
Open your Heart,
to the Loving energy
coming back to you,
in so very many
ways.

“He who abides in Love
abides in God,
and God in him.”
– 1 John 4:16

There is Love
all around:
in every Leaf
that falls
from every Tree,
in every Ray of Sunlight
that falls every day,
in every drop of Rain
that falls from skies above,
and in every Prayer
you Pray.

Your place on
Earth,
is a Sacred Space.

Happiness
comes from
Living the Truth.
And
Truth
dwells in the center
of your very Human Heart,
in your Love
and Compassion
for Yourself,
and every other
precious Living Being.

Miracles
far beyond our greatest
imaginings,
abound
in everything
God
has Created.

            In every Ray of Sunlight.

My Dear Friend,
negative thoughts
are beneath the
Dignity
of our Sacred Existence.

Physicists have discovered
that the entire Universe
is pure energy,
and nothing is solid.

“Concerning matter,
we have been all wrong.
What we have called matter is energy,
whose vibration has been so lowered
as to be perceptible to the senses.
There is no matter.”

Albert Einstein

Our True Nature is pure energy,
which is consciousness.
.

As Children of God
we are incarnated into this level of Reality.
But with our very limited senses,
we are in sufferance of physical illusions
and identify with material forms.
We are removed from awareness
of our Original Nature.

To experience our Ultimate Truth,
follow the advice
found in the Holy Word of God,
and look within yourself.

“Once you have gained knowledge
and start to experience the Truth
contained in the cosmic cycles of Time,
you can start to influence and change the Quantum field
with awareness and conscious observation.
You become aware of the Laws of Creation,
aware that you are the Creator of your experience
and you choose your destiny.”

Jay VonSpreck

All that we are is energy,
and that energy has no boundaries.
It is infinite,
it is the invisible force
that permeates all Space
and Time.

“You have little control
over the World around you,
but full control over the World
within you.”
– Matshona Dhliwayo

The Kingdom of God,
the place where God resides,
is Truly within you.
Yes,
God is within.
Anyone who has ever seriously
meditated,
knows that when you go deep enough within yourself,
you discover
Infinite Universal Consciousness.

Yes,
you can become aware of yourself
as an Infinite and Eternal
Spiritual Entity,
a Child of God.
The more your awareness expands,
the more you live with an alertness
that stems from Love.
Throughout History
many, many people
have become aware.

With the Vibrations of Love,
we are resonating with the highest energy of Creation,
that of Universal, Infinite Consciousness.
With feelings of Love,
we align with that energy
and channel it through us
and expand and become that energy.

Everything, all matter, in our Universe vibrates.
Nothing is still.
Vibration rates are “frequencies”.
And Human thought is a very high form of vibration
and is incomprehensible to our Human mind.

Within
the center of your
Sacred Being,
is the uplifting Power
of God.

“The Kingdom of God
is within you.”
Luke 17:21

His Love
resides within
YOU.
His Love
can become you.

Lead with your Heart
always,
and you will know God.

Goodnight.

Significant Scientific Discoveries

The year 2017 catapulted us into a science-fiction future, from human cell regeneration for growing organs, to banishing genetic disease through breakthrough gene-editing techniques and recycling orbital rockets.  A lot has happened; scientific breakthroughs have made our lives safer, easier and more enjoyable. And the scientific community is only getting started.

Researchers and scientists around the globe have worked tirelessly to bring us this future, so it’s worthwhile to take a step back and applaud their tremendous efforts. The world of tomorrow is being shaped as you read this, so let’s have a look at ten of the biggest stories in science of this year, so far.

Scientists Successfully Edited the First Human Embryo Ever in The U.S.

Scientists Have Finally Created Metallic Hydrogen

For the first time in the wold, scientists created metallic hydrogen by applying almost five million atmospheres of pressure to liquid hydrogen. That’s about five million times the pressure we experience at sea level, and 4,500 times that at the bottom of the ocean. It is the first time a state of hydrogen has existed in a metallic state on Earth. In its metallic state, hydrogen could act as a genuine superconductor and could revolutionize everything from energy storage to rocketry.

Scientists Discovered an Alien Planet That’s The Best Candidate for Life As We Know It

Image Source: NASA Ames/JPL-Caltech/T. Pyle

Scientists at the European Organization for Astronomical Research (ESO) found the best candidate for extraterrestrial life so far. The super-Earth named LHS 1140b was found in the habitable zone of a dim star 40 light-years away from Earth. It receives about half as much sunlight from its star, LHS 1140, as the Earth does from the Sun.

“This is the most exciting exoplanet I’ve seen in the past decade,” author Jason Dittmann of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said in an ESO press release. “We could hardly hope for a better target to perform one of the biggest quests in science — searching for evidence of life beyond Earth.”

Yes, to Life and Yes to Living / Ray Kurzweil Hacks His Body / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

                                   They say YES.

To understand the Song
of a tiny feathered Heart,
and reflect upon
the music of his
magical moment,
is to understand
Life.
As beautiful Birds sing
and flutter around
you,
they say
YES.

Yes,
to Life.
And Yes
to Living.

If
we pause long enough,
and truly listen
to the sensations of their
Hearts,
we no longer decipher
this World
by thought,
but by feeling
and finally knowing,
knowing we belong
in the Beautiful Web
of Life.

                                           We belong.

All
Living Things
are elegantly interdependent
and connected to
everything.

There is
so much Beauty
in this World,
your Heart
cannot comprehend
the profound awe and wonder
of it.

There are deeper forces
at play.
.
Go outside.
Go into God’s World.
Close your eyes.
.

Listen.
Just listen,
and your Heart will see
a larger perception of
Reality
abides all around
the Dream
that is you
and me.

There is Magic
in the moment
you discover
your Spiritual Nature
is in the Wisdom
of Being.

It is simple.
Remove yourself
from the artificial constraints
and the linear constructions
created by the feeble mind
of our kind.

A far greater Love
than we can even imagine,
has Lovingly crafted and created
the truly meaningful moment
that is
YOU.

And the journey
of discovery
My Friend,
is effortless,
like Magic.

Simply go
into the Natural World
created by God.
Sit quietly
under the shade
of His beautiful Tree.
It is simply a matter
of listening,
hearing, feeling
and sensing
what is all around
YOU.

The dark shadows
of our thoughts
can be confusing,
chaotic,
irrelevant.

Stop searching
your mind
for somewhere to go,
something to discover,
something to figure out.
The clarity
we seek,
we need not
look for.
It will find
YOU.

                    It will find YOU.

My Dear Friends,
the awareness
of our kinship
with all of Nature
is long overdue.
It is a relationship
that reaches beyond
Mankind
and extends everywhere.

It is not bounded
by the dimensions
of our species.
It connects
with kindred currents
and ancestral rivers,
visible
and invisible.
.
Shift
from experiencing Life,
to truly Living
in the flow.
Allow the Love
of God
to flow through you,
and all around
you.

When
our precious Hearts
feel the Loving flow
of this beautiful Universe,
we are open
and aware
centered
in the here and now,
and forever more.

We no longer
expect
anything.
What we feel
is more real,
than real.

With no expectations,
our fragile Human Hearts
gently flow
to a deeper state of
Being.

             Your Heart cannot comprehend.

“The harmony
of Natural Law,
reveals an intelligence
of such superiority
that,
compared with it,
all the systematic thinking
and acting of Human Beings
is an utterly insignificant
reflection.”
Albert Einstein

The Universe God created
always
responds to our deep need
to leave our thoughts
and allow the Love
in our Hearts
to flow out
to all
Creation.

So often
we get into
our own way.
We never open
the door
to the most magnificent Gift
that is before
us.

We fail
to explore
the Wisdom
hiding all around
us.
Everything that Lives
has something of value
to share with
you.

As a young Child,
we learned to label
the World.
In trusting others
and not ourselves,
we learned
to color our feelings
about everything
around us.

                      Everything we see is a mirror.

We came to forget
what we instinctively
always knew,
that every Creature in this World
was a beautiful Living Being,
with its own
feelings,
and Hope
for the future.

We failed
to find Wonder,
Knowledge and Insight
and pure Delight,
in the Magic of the moment
we were with them.

All
Living Things
are Beautiful Instruments
through which
the Mind of the Universe
feels,
and thinks
and speaks
and acts.

We
are ALL
instruments
in a vast Cosmic Orchestra,
essential
to the harmonious and complementary
playing of the
Whole.

So very often,
the Creatures God Created
that we fear the most,
or hate,
are the ones that offer
the greatest lessons
for our own personal
growth.

And
this includes
other people.

But,
in remembering our connection
to ALL things Living,
we begin to realize
that everything we see
is a mirror
to our own deeper
Being.

Our Mother,
this Earth,
has dressed Herself up
for a command performance
with the Stars,
arrayed upon the black
of night,
and entwined in Her Hair.
She will forgive you
for not taking
the Time
to know
Love is there,
and everywhere.

“While
with an Eye
made quiet
by the Power of Harmony,
and the deeper Power
of JOY,
we see into
the Life of Things.”
William Wordsworth

We
are One.

Goodnight.

Google Futurist Ray Kurzweil Hacks His Body With These

Ray Kurzweil has many followers. Some call him a prophet.

Over a decade ago, Ray Kurzweil predicted that, within decades, we will have medical nanorobots, now called nanodocs, swimming through our veins keeping us healthy. In a 2007 essay in the Guardian, Kurzweil made the following prediction:

“Within a couple of decades, we will have ‘nanobots’ in our blood stream, basically small robots the size of blood cells, that will keep us healthy at the cellular and molecular level.” Kurzweil later added, “These devices will be a billion times more powerful than they are today in 25 years, and will continue the accelerating path to radical life extension.”

Ray Kurzweil made that prediction back in 2007, and his prophecy is becoming a reality, at least in the treatment of solid-tumor cancer. According to a recent report on bacteriobots, a physician in Montreal may be the first to treat cancer patients with tumor-killing nanorobots.
Futurist, Heal Thyself.

Kurzweil was diagnosed with high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes when only 35. The diagnosis of type 2 diabetes was a wake-up call for Ray, so he read up on the latest nutritional research, went on a diet and cut his fat intake. All that hard work paid off for Ray Kurzweil, who says he reversed both his diabetes and high cholesterol,
losing 40 pounds in the process.

Immortality Isn’t Easy for Ray Kurzweil

As reported by the Financial Times (FT.com), the futurist used to eat 250 pills a day. Now, he’s down to 100. In an interview a few years back, Kurzweil told the Financial Times’s Caroline Daniel that he spends “a few thousand dollars per year” on vitamins and supplements. According to press reports, Kurzweil also spends one day a week in a doctor’s office, receiving intravenous longevity treatments in a bid to live forever.

In addition to taking vitamins and supplements, Ray also eats a healthy diet, rich in plant compounds called phytonutrients. According to Caroline Daniel, his breakfast includes berries, dark chocolate infused with espresso, smoked salmon and mackerel, vanilla soy milk, porridge and green tea.

If the supplement plan doesn’t work, Ray Kurzweil has a backup plan. The outspoken futurist has signed up to for cryonics. Kurzweil joins other notables such as SENS Foundation’s Aubrey de Grey on the member list of the cryonics firm Alcor. Ray Kurzweil has arranged for the cryopreservation of his body shortly after death, with the hopes of being revived when medical science has found a cure for whatever felled him.
.

                            Ray Kurzweil’s Supplement List

Most of the items on this list come from Kurzweil’s book, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever, published back in 2005 when Ray was taking 250 supplements a day. The list has been updated to include the supplements vinpocetine, vitamin D, and alkaline water, recently added to Kurzweil’s list, based on current press reports.

How Not To Live Forever

As reported in a previous article, large doses of some vitamins can cause harm. A few of the supplements on Ray Kurzweil’s list could ruin his health or shorten his life, notably the vitamins B-3 and B-6. Recent research on vitamin B-6 shows that taking more than 100 milligrams of the vitamin over an extended period can cause a form of nerve damage called neuropathy. Research shows that taking excessive vitamin B-3 lowers cholesterol, but can also harm the liver.

Department of Redundancy Department

There’s redundancy in Ray Kurzweil’s longevity regimen.

Ray takes EPA/DHA fish oil supplements. Studies show that when compared to omega-3 supplements, whole fish is a healthier source of these oils. Ray Kurzweil should stick to his salmon.

Kurzweil has a healthy diet, rich in fruit and vegetables. He doesn’t need that many supplements. Ray Kurzweil is going overboard.

I’m puzzled by Ray’s testosterone-boosting regimen. Kurzweil takes many supplements that increase testosterone. At the same time, Ray takes the drug itself.

The best thing to boost testosterone is testosterone itself.
.

Bottom Line on Ray Kurzweil’s Regimen

On the plus side, Kurzweil has an otherwise healthy lifestyle. He takes prescription drugs for legitimate reasons, such as aspirin for the heart, metformin for diabetes and statins for high cholesterol. Some of the medicines have dual purposes. Metformin has been shown to prevent cancer, and it’s a general anti-aging drug to boot. Cholesterol-lowering statins are also proposed for anti-aging purposes.

On the other hand, while justification can be found for some of the items on his list, it seems as if the futurist is taking too many overall. A recent report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests that vitamin supplements aren’t all they are cracked up to be. Instead, the JAMA article recommends that people obtain most of their vitamins and minerals through a healthy diet. The report suggests that those people with specific conditions or at certain life phases might consider vitamin and mineral supplements. Furthermore, two of the B vitamins that Ray takes are shown to be harmful to the health when taken to excess.

Between the Lines of Life / Your Foolproof Guarantee to Happiness / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

“No problem can be solved
by the same consciousness
that created it.”
Albert Einstein

The World
is filled with more
Beauty
than we have time
on this Earth
to see,
or feel,
or taste,
or ever know
real or surreal.
.

This Beauty
is of the material
and
the Ethereal
stunning landscapes
endeared to us
and filled with still-Life,
animated
by the Will of God.

Nature splashes
elegant spectrums
of rich, vibrant and evolving colors,
textures, odors and sensations.
They are Loving invitations
for us to explore
the Beauty of God’s World.

Surrounded
by Oceans of Life,
we find all Living Creatures
are one contiguous Body.
All
are essential for becoming
who we are.

The Story of
Mankind
is truly the Story
of us
all.
.
“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 the hour,
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale
And tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light.
Lord of all to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of Praise.
………………John Rutter

.My Dear Friends,
the Story of Love
is written
between
the lines of
Life.

And the most Loving Story,
the most Beautiful Love Story
ever told,
is in the Scripture of the
Holy Bible.
The molecular structure,
of every Word,
on every Page,
and of every Thought we take captive
from the Knowledge and Wisdom
of God,
like the Human Heart itself,
reveals Love.

My Friend,
we are never trapped
within the Truth,
only set Free.

God’s aim
is that we be transformed,
Sanctified,
freed by the Truth
of his Revealed Word.
(John 8:32; 17:17)

Let your fears
subside.
Like the Moon,
we go through phases
of emptiness,
to feel full
again.

The colors
of our dreams,
fall like leaves
from the Trees.
But
they fall to
the precious Earth,
to be reborn
and give birth.

“Knowing the Truth
will set one at Liberty –
free
from sin,

free from condemnation,
and free from death.”
– Romans 6:22; 8:1-2

To Walk
in the Light
of God’s Love
is the see the Truth,
to view the
World
as God wants you
to see.

Love Is A Choice.

God gave us free will.
We must
choose to Love.

In Loving one another,
we choose
to help
those that are less fortunate.
We choose Light over dark,
Eternal Life
over death.

The River of Life
is wide,
the Ocean deep.
But the waters
will divide
with Promises to keep.
And if
in your Life,
the rain is falling,
a Rainbow can reflect
off the walls
of your precious
Heart.

The sweetest Flower
of your Life
is yet to
Bloom.
.
Goodnight.

Your Foolproof Guarantee to Happiness
by Bill High
read more
We spend most of our lives waiting for our “when.” When I get that promotion.  When I get that new house. When I get the kids in preschool. When I get the kids off to college. When I win the lottery. And so it goes. The idea is that whenever I reach my “when,” then I’ll be happy.

But there is in fact a guaranteed foolproof way to happiness. It comes without regard to how much money you have or where you live. Curious?

There are two new published works [1] coming out of a five year intensive study from the University of Notre Dame – The Science of Generosity Initiative. Here are the findings:

  1. While people would assume that getting things for ourselves would make us happy, it doesn’t.
  2. To the contrary generosity is “positively associated with greater happiness” (defining generosity as regular practices of giving – whether through time or money).
  3. 4 out of 10 Americans who say they give 10% of their income report they are “very happy.” Whereas those who don’t give 10% report a remarkable 10% decline in happiness.
  4. Moreover, the study demonstrated that those who are generous are statistically more likely to be physically healthy, emotionally healthy, and have a greater purpose in life.

The researchers note: “…practices of generosity—such as financial giving, volunteering and relational and neighborly generosity—have the capacity to shape people in the processes of human formation over time.” Or perhaps stated more plainly, “People actually grow by giving themselves away.”

Want to be happy?  Prescription:  generosity.

[1] Christian Smith & Hilary Davidson, The Paradox of Generosity (Oxford 2014); Patricia Snell Herzog & Heather Price, American Generosity: Who Gives & Why (Oxford 2016).
.

“I am entirely certain
that twenty years from now
we will look back at education
as it is practiced in most schools today
and wonder how we could tolerate
anything so primitive.”

John W. Gardner

Deep within us,
beneath
the surface of our conscious mind,
is a place we do not know.
It is
a deeper mind
within.

Most people are far, far away
from this level of awareness.
They live on the fast paced,
often violent surface of the Earth,
with all of its illusions, opportunities,
adventures and misadventures
and misfortunes.

Someone must teach you that Life is lived for Love and Joy. I have my Mother, Marie, to thank.                                – – –  Thank You!

But deep within
there is a burning desire,
a never ending yearning
to find the True
meaning of our
existence.

This longing
emanates
from a deeper place
we can only find
within
each of us.

It is
the very Human Heart,
in which
our Creator lives.

When God created man
in His own image,
He made Mankind
to share
Divine prerogatives.

YOU
are someone great, wonderful and different.
You are the most excellent
of all God’s beautiful creations.
You are a special expression
of Divine Nature,
created by God’s own personal activity.
God created you with Solemnity
and Dignity,
and with the Honor of an intimate
Divine deliberation.

branch-and-sun-bHe created you
with such Love
as you Love
your precious Child.
You are
deeply Loved,
Divine Child
of God.

“Then the Lord God
formed the man of dust from the ground
and breathed into his nostrils
the breath of Life,
and man became a Living creature.”
Genesis 2:7

Only Mankind,
of all God’s creatures,
has a Spirit,
a God-consciousness,
the capacity for knowing God
and holding Spiritual Communion with Him
through Prayer.
purple-flower-one-b

There is a deeper reality.

If this knowledge
can be realized,
if it can be accepted,
WE
will be able to envision
a new reason
for Life
and for living.

skippy-first-pictures-no-two-jpeg-240-psi20170204_15175412

That’s me! A few years back and very much in Love with Life.

How much
is a person responsible
for their own
destiny?
Can knowledge
arise from within
to reassure someone
that Life is not
a singular, lonely journey,
leading to nowhere,
to nothing
but death?

Or can Life be lived
with the Love
of God
to guide and comfort us?

My Dear Friends,
everyone who Loves,
experiences a relationship
with God.
God dwells deeply within us,
within Infinite
layers of Love.

There is much speculation
about the creative
potential of the mind,
about the degree to which
we can truly have an impact
upon our own Human experience
here on Earth.
sun-set-over-lake-b

Love gives Truth, direction and purpose.

Yes,
the Human mind
creates its own reality.
But there is a
deeper reality,
a Mind
that created YOU,
the Mind of
God.

The mind of man
is constantly striving to gain
privileges, possessions,
and become passionate
about Earthly things.
And the result is
immense suffering,
calamity and discord,
not only for ourselves,
but for the whole World.

“Someone’s lost the plan
For the brotherhood of man
And no one’s trying to find it anymore
And the winds become a sigh
For those who hate and those who die,
And the waves are black and slow along the shore.

“And will the grass be gone
from underneath the sky?
Will the golden flower wither soon and die?
Will the fire burn out the land,
And the sea fill up with sand,
Will the last word ever spoken be
WHY?”
Roger Whittaker
Our Human race,
in its quest to conquer and possess,
to digress into the illusion
of ownership,
has disrupted the Natural World
so much,
that now we are confronted
by challenges on a magnitude
that leave us to question
our own survival.

“There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings.
The ocean is a desert with it’s life underground
And a perfect disguise above.
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no Love.
You see I’ve been through the desert
on a Horse with no name.
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain.”
America

Such illusory, illogical aberrations of thought
bring us out of conscious alignment
with the rhythms of Nature
and Natural Wisdom.
And now,
we find it almost impossible
to align with our deeper,
natural
sense of self.

We cannot
even identify
our self.

“You think you own
whatever land you land on,
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim.
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a Life,
Has a Spirit,
Has a Name.

Come run the hidden pine trails of the Forest.
Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth.
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth.

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers.
The Heron and the Otter are my friends.
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends.

You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth,
Until
You can paint
With all the colors of the wind.
Stephen Schwartz

By altering our climate
we create new dimensions
of stress and uncertainty.
We are no longer
prepared for the future,
a future we cannot
predict.

But God,
My Friends,
dwells in the World
we live in.
And He
will prepare you
and strengthen you.
He will Love you.

“The Bible
is a love letter
from God.”
George Norwood, Deepermind.com

Tomorrow
is beyond the pale
of our understanding.
The future will require
a depth of understanding
and knowledge
and Compassion
that only
the Love of God
can provide.

God has placed within you
the strength
for you
to face the difficult times ahead
and deeper intelligence
in His Sacred Knowledge.

The answers lie
buried
deep within.

Goodnight.

         A Love Letter from God.

7 Natural Drinks That Help To Calm Your Nerves
By Urmet Seepter
.
Relaxing has phenomenal health benefits including reducing stress, insomnia and also discouraging the development of cancer and heart diseases. This post discusses natural drinks that you can take to calm your nerves and relax.

        7 Natural Calm-Down Drinks that Will Relax Your Nerves

Pure Coconut Water

Although coconut water has been associated more with its energy-boosting capabilities, it can also help you sleep better. It is an excellent source of magnesium and potassium, the two ingredients that help muscles relax and regulate digestion and improve blood circulation. A small cup of coconut water is richer in potassium than 2 bananas. Also, coconut water is rich in B vitamins that help reduce stress and can also lessen the risks of lower blood pressure and heart attack. It is one of the best remedies you can drink to calm your nerves naturally.

Warm Or Hot Milk

Hot or even warm milk is great for a person who feels that his nerves are shot and they want to fall asleep. Milk contains an amino acid known as tryptophan and this is what helps you calm your nerves. If you want sweet antioxidant boost, mix it with a little honey. Next time you are unable to calm your nerves, just drink warm or hot milk. It can work wonders.

Tart Cherry Juice

According to studies, drinking tart cherry juice has overwhelming benefits to your body. Some of its advantages include reducing inflammation associated with arthritis and heart disease, encouraging normal levels of uric acid (this can ease gout), lowering blood cholesterol, encouraging healthy joints and improving muscle recovery.

It also has great sleep advantages in addition to promoting a lovely skin. It is common to see some of the best athletes take this drink in the middle of their performances.

Herbal Teas

There are many herbal teas that can help your anxiety. However, it is important that whatever tea you choose to take, it should not contain caffeine.

Below are the common herbal teas that you can drink to calm your nerves.

Kava.

This is by far the best known herbal tea for dealing with anxiety. Many times, its effects are likened to those of Buspar, a common anxiety drug, and it appears to possess all the traits of a herbal remedy. This includes being non-addictive, completely natural as well as the fact that it can be consumed whenever needed. However, it is instructive to take note of a few things regarding kava tea. Firstly, the kava tea bought at your local grocery store is not good enough to relax you. While the basic teas provide only 30-50 kavalactones, you need up to 300 or more for you to see any calming effects. The trick is to find a purer herbal tea, such as those that are normally stocked in tea shops. Also, it is advisable to mix it with a drink that contains fats, like coconut milk or butter. Another thing is that kava is very strong and is likely to interact with certain medications. Also, never take it with alcohol. If you have liver disease, kava tea is not for you. NB! This drink must not be taken without a doctor’s nod.

Passionflower Tea.

Passionflower tea works similar to kava. However, it is not strong the way kava is but has lots of benefits. It offers great calming effects the same way kava does but it does not have the side effects associated with kava.

Valerian Root Tea. This type of herbal tea is not necessarily designed for anxiety. However, it still has the calming effects that can soothe anxiety symptoms. Traditionally, valerian tea was used to aid people in sleeping. Many people who suffer from insomnia use valerian root tea to help them catch a few winks of sleep.

Oat Straw

Oat straw may be good for you if you want something to drink to calm your nerves. It is a well known remedy that has been used over the years to cure exhaustion and depression. However, this is not a magic drink that will relieve you of your anxiety in an instant. It must be taken for some time, like a month, for it to have calming effects on you. You can find it in stores that sell natural remedies and herbs.

Green Tea

Green tea has many health benefits, and one of these is stress relief. The reason for its stress relief is mainly because of theanine it contains, an important calming agent. Like the herbal teas above, it is important that you drink decaffeinated green tea. Caffeine is in fact a stimulant and cannot produce the calming effects that you need.

Honey-Infused Drinks

If, for some reason, you cannot use herbal teas, just take any of the drinks mentioned above and infuse them with honey for roughly two weeks. When you feel ready to drink a cup, just mix a table spoon of honey or tea mixture into hot water, hot milk or coconut water and drink it up. It will calm your nerves and help you relax.

Relaxing is important for a healthy person. However, the busy lifestyles that most of us find ourselves in today deprive us of time to relax. But the good news is that there are indeed natural drinks that you can take to calm your nerves.

The Greatest Reveal of All / Consciousness Lives In Quantum State After Death / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

We are all drawn to the Miraculous.
Oh,
if only we knew.
The Greatest of all Miracles,
is within
me and you.

Life,
given to Life,
forms a Perfect Circle
shaped by fate
in ways we cannot predict
or understand.

We
are so Beautiful and truly Amazing.
Many moments
pass us by in the void
of never being aware,
that WE
were created by
the Beautiful Mind
of God.
And this,
My Friend,
is the Greatest Reveal
of all.

I have watched
the setting Sun
over and over again,
as it brings my Life
back to me,
and takes away
my breath.

And you
may have Life
in all its Splendor,
and in its magnificent Beauty,
in all its True Glory,
restored to you,
in this Life
and the next.

Simply,
be aware.

In the Cathedral of God,
the vast illuminated Sky
is Holy
Mere Words are paltry and weak
to describe infinite Beauty.
Only the Heart
can feel
what God Reveals
on a sunlit evening,
when a fleeting glimpse
of the Beauty of God’s Love
is revealed in this World,
a mere sliver
of His abundant delight
in the Beauty of His Earth.

He delights
in our delight.
He wants us to truly
enjoy
the Bounty of His Love,
and the Beauty of His World,
in the brief moment
we are here.

This Earth
is
a tiny Paradise
in the vast and violent Universe.
Mankind
has been given the opportunity
to live in this Paradise
on Earth.

My Dear Friends,
we have the power
to sustain Life
and allow the creation of our Beautiful World
to benefit every Living Thing.

“One look at Love
and you may see,
it weaves a web over mystery.
All raveled treads can rend apart,
for Hope has a place
in a Lovers Heart.”
Click to play song
– by Enya

Our Human consciousness
can change things
for the benefit of
all.

Our material World,
is temporary and fleeting.
But
God’s Love is Eternal.
It lives within
YOU.
And there
it shall
always abide.
.

To keep Peace in your Soul
and sustain the Natural Harmony around you,
listen to your precious Heart,
and do not awake
from God’s Dream.

The Holy Word of God
has much to say
about the Beauty and Goodness
of the place
He has given
to call
Home.
.

Whenever the setting Sun
brushes across the Horizon
of His Sky,
in a magnificent mystic myriad
of colors, orange and red and beyond,
and lays down the carpet
for moonlight to spread across
the depths of our delight,
we can experience
the stir our
Souls.

 God
shows us
what is precious.
He allows us
to see the Beautiful Love
for which we can only be
grateful.

Goodnight.

“I see trees of green
and red roses too.
I’ll watch them bloom for me and you.
And I think to myself
What a Wonderful World.
Well, I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white.
And the brightness of day
I like the dark.

And I think to myself
what a Wonderful World.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
And also on the faces of people passing by.
I see friends shaking hands saying
How do you do?
They’re really saying I,
I Love you.”
Edgar Yipsel “Yip” Harburg

Physicists Claim that Consciousness Lives

in Quantum State After Death

The Soul and Quantum Physics

click here to read more

I knew the time would soon come when physicists would tackle the survival after physical life question. This article represents an important early step.  Written by Janey Tracey in June 17, 2014, and published online at Outer Places.

.

Does quantum mechanics predict the existence of a spiritual “soul”? Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of life after death.” They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantum mechanics, proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons, possess the properties of both particles and waves. These physicists claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body dichotomy.
.
If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead, then there is an existence after death (speaking in purely physical terms). Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr, former head of the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich, posits that, just as a particle “writes” all of its information on its wave function, the brain is the tangible “floppy disk” on which we save our data, and this data is then “uploaded” into the spiritual quantum field. Continuing with this analogy, when we die the body, or the physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the data on the computer, lives on.

“What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. Which this world is rooted in. In this way, our lives in this plane of existence are encompassed, surrounded, by the afterworld already. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal,” says Dürr.

Dr. Christian Hellwig of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, found evidence that information in our central nervous system is phase encoded, a type of coding that allows multiple pieces of data to occupy the same time. He said, “Our thoughts, our will, our consciousness and our feelings show properties that could be referred to as Spiritual properties.
.
No direct interaction with the known fundamental forces of natural science, such as gravitation, electromagnetic forces, etc. can be detected in the spiritual. On the other hand, however, these spiritual properties correspond exactly to the characteristics that distinguish the extremely puzzling and wondrous phenomena in the quantum world.”

Physicist Professor Robert Jahn of Princeton University concluded that if consciousness can exchange information in both directions with the physical environment, then it can be attributed with the same “molecular binding potential” as physical objects, meaning that it must also follow the tenets of quantum mechanics. Quantum physicist David Bohm, a student and friend of Albert Einstein, was of a similar opinion. He stated, “The results of modern natural sciences only make sense if we assume an inner, uniform, transcendent reality that is based on all external data and facts. The very depth of human consciousness is one of them.”

Our Unfolding Reality / Reasons to Eat Organic Food / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Play Preparation)

                        A richer view.

Each observation in our Life
is an opportunity to grow
in many ways,
and especially
Spiritually.

In a Universe
that is so alive,
and filled with
Beauty,
we can be consciously,
and emotionally,
moved
to act in a Loving
manner,
to change and position
our precious Lives,
our future
and our World.

Wandering Rainbows
leave a bit of color
in every Heart
they
own.

As we reflect
upon such abundant Beauty,
let us always know
that we can be likened
to a Flower
in the field,
that the wind
passes over,
and the Sun
showers with Love.
Like the Breath
of Man
in greeting each other
in dimensions gentle
and natural,
the where and when
of which we become
caring
and compassionate.

Our Love
for one another
has something Mystical
about it.
Sometimes,
it is hard
to comprehend,
as the evidence avails
and our ego
prevails.

The paradox
of free will
is sweeping us
into transcendence
of a kind,
as space and time
reflect the illusions
of this finite phase
of our Earthly
existence.

As you greet
and say goodbye
to our Parental Star,
and to
the wonder of
who we are,
let
your fascination
turn to
Love.

My Dear Friends,
we are far greater
than our thoughts,
much more than our
physical being.
We are part
of a larger Whole,
a collective
Earthly existence,
a Spiritual Being
living in a
Spiritual Universe.

A richer view
of our Life on Earth
is possible.
By more fully realizing
we actively create
the events
in our Life,
our unfolding reality
comes into view
and the future
comes into being.

Reality
is merely an outward expression
of what we have chosen
to create
and to accept.

Our imagination
is far more valuable than reality.
Our imagination
creates the future.
When we remain immersed
in what is always
directly in front of us at all times,
we continually create
the same experiences
over and over again.

“Imagination is everything.
It is the preview for Life’s
coming attractions.”
Albert Einstein

If we venture forth
into our imagination
and focus on a new reality
we want to experience,
a mysterious energy
is set into motion
and magnificent changes
will occur.

By recognizing
our power of
choice,
we can literally
change the present,
and create
the future.

Solutions
to our problems today,
require us
to move forward
into the future.
We can do so
by asking ourselves:
“Describe
what your Life
will be like
in five or ten or twenty
years?”

              With God by our side.

If
we make no changes,
what will it be like?

Now,
we can come
to realize,
that the future can
dictate the present.
It is your
future self
that can guide you,
and empower you
to move forward.

Our road
to a better tomorrow
is not really a road
at all.
It is an easy
pathway,
through a conscious effort
to make different
choices
with the guidance
of our future,
Loving
Self.

To walk
down the pathway of Living,
with God
by our side,
will teach us
the fundamental lessons
of Love, Forgiveness, Compassion
and Mercy.
It is
far, far easier
than the road of Life,
which can be devastating
to the Human
who suffers it.

Our happiness in Life
is measured
by the choices we make
in every moment.
And the pathway
to success
is through unconditional
LOVE,
for our fellow
Human Beings,
and for ourselves.

We have
the free will
to Love others,
and accept
the Love of
God.

It is not
just for this moment
that we live.
Our Ship of Life
lies rigged and ready
in the harbor.
And somewhere beyond
the horizon,
the Beauty
of God’s Love
waits patiently.

Please know
that God Loves
You,
no matter what.

The Binding Force
of our Universe,
is
the binding force
of Love.

Goodnight.

Reasons to Eat Organic Food
By: Michelle Schoffro Cook
About Michelle
Follow Michelle at @mschoffrocook

Organic food was the only option for thousands of years.  Now, with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and genetically-modified foods, organic is still the best option.  Here are reasons to eat organic food:

1.  Genetically-modified foods were unleashed on the environment and the public by corporations like Monsanto without prior testing to determine their safety.  In other words, eating genetically-modified foods (which most people in in large amounts) is participating in a long-term, uncontrolled experiment. Choose organic to avoid participating in this experiment.

2.  More and more research is coming in about the health threat of genetically-modified food.  The results range from intestinal damage, allergies, liver or pancreatic problems, testicular cellular changes, tumors, and even death in the experimental animals. For more information, read the excellent books by Jeffrey M. Smith Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette. I’ll discuss more of the problems linked with GMOs in upcoming blogs. Eating third-party certified organic foods or those that are guaranteed to be grown from organic seed helps protect you from the health consequences of GMOs.

Potential Health Risks of Eating GMO Foods

3.  Fruits and vegetables are real food, not pesticide factories. Eighteen percent of all genetically-modified seeds (and therefore foods that grow from them) are engineered to produce their own pesticides.  Research shows that these seeds continue producing pesticides inside your body once you’ve eaten the food grown from them! Foods that are actually pesticide factories…no thanks.

4.  They’re free of neurotoxins – toxins that are damaging to brain and nerve cells. A commonly-used class of pesticides called organophosphates was originally developed as a toxic nerve agent during World War I. When there was no longer a need for them in warfare, industry adapted them to kill pests on foods. Many pesticides are still considered neurotoxins.  Learn more about pesticides in The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox Plan.

5.  They’re supportive of growing children’s brains and bodies.  Children’s growing brains and bodies are far more susceptible to toxins than adults.  Choosing organic helps feed their bodies without the exposure to pesticides and genetically-modified organisms, both of which have a relatively short history of use (and therefore safety).

6.  In study after study, research from independent organizations consistently shows organic food is higher in nutrients than traditional foods.  Research shows that organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, and the minerals calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium. (For more information, check out The Life Force Diet).

Keep reading to learn how organic food is better for the environment…

7.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that pesticides pollute the primary drinking source for half the American population. Organic farming is the best solution to the problem. Buying organic helps reduce pollution in our drinking water.

8.  Organic food is earth-supportive (when big business keeps their hands out of it). Organic food production has been around for thousands of years and is the sustainable choice for the future.  Compare that to modern agricultural practices that are destructive of the environment through widespread use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers and have resulted in drastic environmental damage in many parts of the world.

9.  Organic food choices grown on small-scale organic farms help ensure independent family farmers can create a livelihood. Consider it the domestic version of fair trade.

10. Most organic food simply tastes better than the pesticide-grown counterparts.

11. Organic food is not exposed to gas-ripening like some non-organic fruits and vegetables (like bananas).

12.  Organic farms are safer for farm workers. Research at the Harvard School of Public Health found a 70% increase in Parkinson’s disease among people exposed to pesticides. Choosing organic foods means that more people will be able to work on farms without incurring the higher potential health risk of Parkinson’s or other illnesses.

13.  Organic food supports wildlife habitats. Even with commonly used amounts of pesticides, wildlife is being harmed by exposure to pesticides.

14.  Eating organic may reduce your cancer risk.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides, and 30% of insecticides potentially cancer-causing.  It is reasonable to think that the rapidly increasing rates of cancer are at least partly linked to the use of these carcinogenic pesticides.

15.  Choosing organic meat lessens your exposure to antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and drugs that find their way into the animals and ultimately into you.

16.  Organic food is tried and tested. By some estimates genetically-modified food makes up 80% of the average person’s food consumption. Genetic modification of food is still experimental. Avoid being part of this wide scale and uncontrolled experiment.

17.  Organic food supports greater biodiversity.  Diversity is fundamental to life on this planet. Genetically-modified and non-organic food is focused on high yield monoculture and is destroying biodiversity.
