We Are Alive Forever / The Power of Pure Consciousness / Obesity May Double Risk Of Cancer / Friday: T. B. A.

We hear of
Miracles.
And there are
many.

My Dear Friend,
Miracles abound
with the simplicity
of knowing,
that everything
is a Miracle.

No.
We are never fully
aware,
that every Life
is a Miracle,
every day
is a Miracle,
and every moment
is truly Miraculous.

William Wordsworth
wrote in a poem that begins,
“The World is too much with us;
late and soon,
getting and spending,
we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature
that is ours.”

It is very hard
to reflect upon what is going on,
because demands for our time
and our energy
don’t diminish.

The beauty of God’s creation is everywhere.

And so,
we are seldom
in the moment.

Slowing down
is essential
and
requires the recognition
that it is important
to do so.

Finding a tranquil location,
perched along the banks of a soothing River
makes it easy to slow your pace
and discover the art
of relaxation.
Since the Beauty of God’s creation
is everywhere,
it isn’t necessary to travel
many miles
to behold it.

The wonders of our Father
in Heaven
abound all around us,
surround us,
are us.
And these marvels
reveal much about our
Creator.
His Beauty
is reflected
in His
Creations.

Yes,
it is reflected
in YOU.

To sense our consciousness,
just slow down
and take notice of the marvels
unfolding all around us.
To live in
WONDER,
focus your conscious thoughts,
your good intentions
and physical energy.

Get rid of the
negative emotion.
Our reality
is that everyone
is playing the game
of Life
at their own pace.

Escape to another Century,
with your intention of understanding
a totally other time
and place.
Slow your pace
and sustain your reading attention.
It is important that mom AND dad
model the slow reading
of truly great literature
for their children.

Our shadows are cast by the same Light.

My Dear Friends,
the brevity
of our Being
dictates many things.
But
our brevity is
illusory.
Our constituent essence
exists lividly buried,
and forever alive,
within our DNA
and that of our inheritors,
our children,
and our children’s
children.
And,
more importantly,
we are alive forever
in the Spirit.

“For you have been born again,
but not to a Life that will quickly end.
Your new Life will last forever
because it comes from
the Eternal, Living Word
of God.”

1 Peter 1:23

The essence
of our Being
is truly designed,
Biologically and Spiritually,
to be alive
forever.

As every Flower
blossoms,
it soon fades away.
And Flowers teach us:
we each
have the capacity
to blossom,
and express
the Beauty of Love
to the whole World.

“Our Spiritual roots
are where our Life gets its nourishment.
It is our infinite source of the Love,
happiness, and serenity that we all deeply desire.
Through Spirituality we gain
an outlook that best benefits
our Life.
Randi G. Fine

Our shadows
are cast
by the same Light.
But,
our options
for Life and Living,
lie in many
Beautiful dimensions.

Good
Beautiful
night.

                               Flowers teach us.

The Power of Pure Consciousness
by Steve Taylor
read more

Experiencing ‘consciousness-in-itself’ can have a massively therapeutic effect. It brings a sense of being firmly rooted in ourselves, of being truly who we are. We also have a sense of being truly where we are, realizing that before we were only half-present, and everything we see around us seems intensely real and alive, as if our perceptions have become much more acute. But above all, we experience a profound sense of inner peace and natural happiness. As the Hindu and Buddhist traditions have always held, the nature of consciousness-in-itself (which means the consciousness inside us and the consciousness which pervades the whole universe) is bliss. Getting into contact with the pure consciousness inside us enables us, therefore, to experience this bliss. Indeed, it could be said that it’s only when we do this that we can experience true happiness.

Obesity May Double Risk Of Colorectal Cancer
NDTV.COM
click here to read more

Women who are overweight or obese have up to twice the risk of developing colorectal cancer before age 50. The study published in the journal JAMA Oncology, said that it was it is of utmost importance for women to maintain a healthy weight, beginning in early adulthood for prevention of early-onset colorectal cancer.

Compared with women with the lowest body mass index (BMIs), 18.5-22.9 kilograms per square meter, women with the highest BMIs, greater than 30, had almost twice the risk of early-onset of colorectal cancer, Xinhua news agency reported.

“We hypothesised that the obesity epidemic may partially contribute to this national and global concern in early-onset colorectal cancer rates, but we were surprised by the strength of the link and the contribution of obesity and weight change since early adulthood,” said Yin Cao, Assistant Professor of surgery in the Division of Public Health Sciences at Washington University.

For the study, published in the journal JAMA Oncology, the team included data from 85,256 women aged 25 to 44.It must be understood that this is an association study, which does not establish that increasing weight is a cause of early-onset colorectal cancer. More studies are needed to uncover the causal relationship between the two and identify young people at high risk of colorectal cancer at younger ages.

The American Cancer Society recently lowered the recommended age at which most people should undergo a first screening colonoscopy. The new guidelines recommend screening beginning at age 45, down from the previous recommendation of age 50.

Obesity is a condition characterized by excessive body weight. Your diet can play a significant role in managing obesity. Here are some foods that are known for their fat burning abilities.

1. Tomato: Tomatoes encourage the production of the amino acid called Carnitine, which is an organic molecule that plays an important role in the regulation of fatty acid and energy metabolism. Tomatoes also have a compound known as 9-oxo-ODA that helps reduce lipids in blood, which further helps in preventing weight gain and belly fat.

2. Green Tea: Catechins are one of the antioxidants present in green tea which are believed to boost metabolism, further promoting weight loss.

3. Celery: Containing barely 16 calories per 100 grams (as per USDA), celery is ranked high among negative calorie foods. Packed with fiber, celery is also rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate.

4. Broccoli: Plant-based foods are high in fiber and great calorie burners. Containing barely 34 calories per 100 grams. Broccoli is ranked high amongst superfoods. It is packed with fibers and antioxidants and studies have shown that they may also have certain anti-cancer properties.

Living Is But One Dimension / Prevent Cancer in Your Home / Tuesday, Jan. 5 We Begin Again

There is so much more
To Life,
Than Life.

Amazing_Water_Lily_flower_beautiful

    There is more to what exists.

Living is but one
Dimension of existence.
It is a very narrow fragment.
Life is a very thin sliver
Of awareness,
Of who we are,
What we know,
What can be.

The Water Lily,
So fragile, delicate and beautiful,
Floats upon the surface
Of its reality,
Much like you and me,
Never knowing, unaware,
Of what lies beneath,
In the waters of Life,
Majestic, dark and deep.

ws_Water_Lilies_Pond_1920x1200

    This time is your true Treasure.

What lurks below
Is unknown,
And the distance
May be vast,
Much like the way
To what lies above,
To the infinity of stars,
Far beyond what
The Water Lily
filled with Life,
Or we,
May ever know.

And the narrow path forward,
Around and beyond,
Is the horizon,
The limit of what we see,
But not of what is,
Not what can be.

“There are more things
in Heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of
in our philosophy.”

– Hamlet, First Folio (1623),
by William Shakespeare

There is so much more
To what exists,
And whatever will be,
To what our minds can imagine,
Where we truly are,
Where we can go,
What we can see.

l

Fragile, delicate and beautiful, as are you and me.

My Friends,
The wind beneath
The wings of your longing
Can lift your Spirit
To heights so Heavenly,
Only dreams aspire,
Only Angels see.

lilies

There is so much more to Life.

For you are Lovingly made
Of Angelic Dust,
Formed within a Beautiful Dream,
By a God that deeply Loves you,
Knows your every desire,
Every need,
Every longing,
In every moment
To be.

Fragrant Water Lilies

The wings of your longing can lift your Spirit.

Rejoice,
My Dear Friends.
Take comfort in this brief moment
Made for you and me.
This time is your true Treasure,
God’s precious Gift beyond belief,
As you may come one day
To see.

“Surely a man goes about
as a shadow!

Surely for nothing
they are in turmoil.”

– Psalm 39:5-6

This time on Earth
Is all we have,
All we need,
To share who we are,
Be all we can be,
To Love so deeply
No one is left in need,
And Life is fulfilled
Beyond what we
Are able to see.

ground

The ground beneath your feet
Bears the weight of your Dignity.
Yes, it carries more than you and me.
For we walk upon this Sacred Soil
With our hopes and dreams,
The Sanctity of our Being,
Our wishes for all Humanity,
The Destiny of our deep desires,
The discovery of our Divinity.

Across the great divide
Of fear and doubt,
Lies this Sacred Land
Found only in dreams.
And as Spirits soar
In our search for
Everlasting Love,
We discover our Home
In the Heart of One
We Adore.

mountain

    Welcome Home.

What we endeavor to see
Is far less than what we are.
We are so very much more
Than what we thought,
What we imagined,
What we dreamed
We could ever be.

When your longing for Love
Is carried gently
On the Wings of Prayer.
There
You will be.

Welcome Home.

Prevent Cancer in Your Home in 6 Easy Steps

Read more

cancer-prevention-266x300

There are many steps you can take –
in your home, your lifestyle and your body –
to drastically reduce your lifetime cancer risk.

Hey folks,
This is easy!
It is just common sense.

Toxic cleaning products
in your home drastically increase your cancer risk –
especially BREAST cancer risk for the females
who tend to use them most often.

Women have been shown to absorb
as much as FIVE pounds of toxins
through the skin each year.

Do we have your attention
YET?

We are destroying our immune system’s
ability to fight germs and infection
by overwhelming our environment
with antibacterial products.

The BEST product to use
for general household cleaning is
(GRIP YOUR KEYBOARD TIGHTLY –
HERE IT COMES):

simple soap and water.

Hey, it gets even easier.

Choose Organic

We have known how dangerous
pesticides are for decades.
By choosing organically grown vegetables
and organically raised animal products
you limit your amount of exposure.

This is especially important
when it comes to “soft” fruits and vegetables
– such as peaches and tomatoes –
that absorb more insecticides and chemicals
than thicker-skinned varieties.

If you think ORGANIC is more expensive –
try a month in the hospital.
Pay that bill,
then look forward to going home
to slowly and painfully
die.

Come on folks,
wake up!
How simple do you want
me to say it.

I Love You.

And yes,
that is reason enough
to hit you between the eyes
with the truth!

The chemicals used in dry cleaning
have been linked to several forms of cancer.

So before you drop off your clothing,
and that of your loved ones,
at the dry cleaners,
THINK
Do I really want to die in this way?

Yes,
My friends.
It is that simple.

Cancer is overwhelmingly
a result of environmental factors.

A few minutes of reading,
coupled with a relatively small dose
of common sense,
can prevent a horrible death.
And I do mean
horrible.

I have lost so very many loved ones,
including my precious Mother, Marie,
friends, neighbors, a deeply loved student,
Aaron Rivera,
fellow teachers I truly admired and loved
and so many others to this horrible
and preventable malady.

The thought of losing
you
I cannot bear.

And now,
I simply must close.
I cannot see through
the tears.

R. J. (Rosie Junior) celebrated his second birthday on Dec. 26. He received many gifts from Ian, Dr. A. and others. But his Love is the greatest gift of all. I am afraid not to Love him.

They Are But Three / If Good Men Do Nothing / Movie: Theory of Everything

 There is only one happiness in life,
to love and be loved.
– George Sand

I Love You

Life has taught us that Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward, together in the same direction. – Antoine de Saint-Expurey

“I Love You”
Are but three,
You, what you dream,
And what you see.

They say something much more
Than they say,
And harbor within
A world you cannot contain.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life:     that word is Love.                         – Sophocles

They are not words,
Oh, Keeper of the Keys.
They are the secrets
That unlock the doors
To hearts in every place,
In every space.

And they are but three.
And they are but yours.
Yours to share,
Yours in Prayer,
To climb three stairs,
To Love so sublime.
They are a poem
In life’s rhyme
,

All in rhythm
With Celestial Time.

Noah turns 13.

Congratulations to Noah    who turned 13.

Three simple sounds
To say what God feels
For you, and for me,
Today, not never,
Now and forever.

You cannot truly know
What you cannot feel.
And feeling not
Conveys less than you are.
And you are all the world
To someone in need,
Who, hearing nothing,
Feels not the beat
Of your heart,
Or his own.

020They are but three
Harbingers of freedom.
They open the wounds
Of a lonely heart,
To feeling,
To healing,
To Loving again.

You can share this love,
This moment.
You, and you alone
Can feel the way,
Convey your Love for another
On a special day,
This day,
Father, Mother, Sister, Brother,
Beloved of another.

We have two new friends.

We have two new friends.

Your life is a Prayer,
Your Love, always there,
To discover,
To give,
To share.

What in the name of All
That resides in
Heaven Above

Are you waiting for?

According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece left on the table.

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece on the table.

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies –
and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

  1. The food you eat…
We enjoyed a Holiday lunch with David & Amy Smelley

We enjoyed a Holiday lunch with David & Amy Smelley. Thank you!

2. the air you breathe…
3. the clothes you wear…
4. the water you drink…
5. personal care products you use…
6. medications you take…
7. the water you bathe in
8. virtually everything you consume, and
9. everything you do –
10. or are exposed to –
causes cancer these days!

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in 
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

      • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
      • Genetically modified food
      • Most laundry detergents
      • Commercial hair dyes

       It was delicious!

        • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein)
      • Granite counter-tops (which emit radon)
      • Rancid peanuts and seeds
      • Canola oil
      • Canned tomatoes
We were in the mood to celebrate.

      • Food laced with pesticides

    •Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.
    A great time was had by all.

    A great time was had by all.

    My friends, until we start electing people to represent us, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and loving people to represent us.Frankly, these individuals need to love us more than they love themselves.

    It was a delightful time.

    It was a delightful time.

    These loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous heart of this Nation, there is no hope. Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

    And yes, it is a cancer of the heart, our heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
    is that good men do nothing.”
