Act Like The Miracle You Are / EMF Radiation From Power Lines / School Calendar

“What we call cultural evolution
is essentially
a constant growing and widening

of the Human
Imagination.

Jacob Bronowski

We
can turn all our Tomorrows
into Flowers,
or
we can turn them into
sorrows.
We
can dwell in the Land
of Love,
or live on the outskirts
of the Village
of reason.
.
We dream
that Love will
last,
never knowing
that Love
is
what we are.
.
Love

never dies.
.

Turn our Tomorrows into Flowers.

There are many
mysteries
in this World.
But they
yield to us
only
a very elementary semblance
of reality.
.
Even in humble everyday
matters,
our Spiritual struggle
continues and evolves.
It grows
by sequential Revelation
in a natural progression
of evolving
contemplation.
.
Yes,
we are Biologically
and Spiritually
related.
.
And,
ALL
things are yours,
as YOU
are parcel of
Creation.
The Beauty
of God’s World
truly belongs in
Spirit
to you,
and to everyone.
.
Yes,
the Beauty of God’s World
belongs to
YOU.
.
.
Everything our Life
touches,
or passes by,
liberates us
from the poverty
of never knowing,
never seeing,
never realizing
the bountiful and Beautiful Gifts
and Blessings
that are all around
us.

You are a Miracle.

“Then I beheld all the work of God,
that a man cannot find out the work
that is done under the sun:

because though a man labor to seek it out,
yet he shall not find it;
yea further;
though a wise man think to know it,
yet shall he not be able to find it.
Ecclesiastes 8:17
.
The invisible Universe
is more real
than the visible one.
This fact,
My Dear Friend,
is far from
new.
.
Aristotle
called Life:
“Spirit
pervading matter.”

The more you
read
the Holy Word
of God,
the more
you will discover
the Truth,
as it emerges
as eminently reasonable.

As we pass through
the shadows of Life’s illusions,
and enter into
the Eternal Light of Truth,
we wield
the Sword of the Spirit
which is the powerful
Word of God,
tempered
in the Hot, Scorching Fire of
His Everlasting
Love.

We must learn
how to use the Sword
of the Holy Spirit.

“The Word of God
is living and active.
Sharper than any double-­edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts
and attitudes of the
Heart.”

Hebrews 4:12

.
We
are impossibly
Miraculous.
The History
of Mankind
is literally
an endless sequence
of Miracles.

You
are a Miracle.
The chances of you
being born
YOU,
are now estimated at
1 in 400 Trillion.
And by comparison,
today
astronomers estimate
there are over 2 Trillion
Galaxies
in all the Universe.

ACT
like the Miracle
you are!

Ultimate Reality / In Which Countries are all New Cars to be Electric? / ATEX Trash Service / Friday: F.W. Nature Center

Love is the most Beautiful thing on Earth, and the only thing in Heaven Above.

When I consider all the Lovely Things
God has created,
among them are the Treasures
of our emotions
and
our feelings.

And we can do no better
than letting the passion,
and compassion,
of our Mortal Being
drift into our
Souls.

The Love
we feel for one another,
is the same Love
God
feels for us.
.
“The Love of God
is greater far

than tongue or pen
can ever tell.”
Frederick Lehman

As we
permit the Love of God
to flow
through us,
and out into the Hearts
of others,
we come to know
and to understand,
the Ultimate Reality
that pervades
everything.

               Pervades everything.

The most profound
Truths
are the least
describable,
for there is almost
nothing
to compare them to.

The clearly finite mind
of Man
is limited.
It simply cannot visualize
the Infinite.

“To know that what is
impenetrable to us
really exists,
manifesting itself as the Highest Wisdom
and the most radiant Beauty
which our dull faculties can comprehend
only in their most primitive forms
– this knowledge, this feeling,
is at the center of all
True Religiousness.

Albert Einstein

The colors of God’s Love are everywhere.

If you stand
on ground you’ve never felt before,
to say things
held deep in your Heart,
subtle secrets of unfathomable Beauty,
that you have not told,
will reveal themselves
at will.

                    Everything.

The colors of Love,
in shades from
Above,
you may think
will never last.
But if
they never did,
would you and I
be here
to think about
anything at all?

What would you say
to someone you Loved
more deeply
than Life itself?
.
Death,
My Friend,
cannot come to be
more known to
you and me,
than to never know
Love
at all.

We are in an Ocean
of waters deep,
when Love
is just out of reach.

My Dear Friends,
we are made for each other
and not for solitude,
which can only engender
despair,
and no delight.

To never
know that Love
is what Life
is really all about,
leaves us swirling,
between waves
in distance growing farther and farther
apart,
drifting, afloat and
wondering,
if we will drown,
before Life can even
start.

“Beloved,
let us Love one another,
for Love is from God,
and whoever Loves
has been born of God
and knows God. “

1 John 3:16

You
and the one
you hold deep in your Heart,
compromise whatever is pure,
ever True.
For as you
Love another,
God Loves You.
Knowing
in this moment
you are Loved,
will last
far past
forever and ever.
.
“Love
  never dies.”
1 Corinthians 13:8

              In shades from Above.

And so,
what do I do?

Just
reach out,

with a Heart blistered still,
from working far too hard
with words
shaped into shields,
and looks surreal,
doubting,
adrift,
and drowning
in the vast sea
of never fully knowing,
the Love of God
flows
like a Raging River
through me
and through you.
.
“I was wondering
why Life is so hard.
Being a Human,
it’s really hard.
For our whole Life,
from the day you are born
until the last breath.
Sometimes I wish I was a Tree,
a cloud,
or maybe rain,
but not Human.
Mr Lennonson
.
Love
is much like
the colors of a
Rainbow,
displaying
some shades of Light
NEVER
to be viewed,
never that can engender
a power or a delight
of the Human Heart,
until
you truly see the
Light.

“Life
is Spirit

pervading matter.”
Aristotle

             Until you truly see the Light.

Our awareness
of the vast Unknown
is no greater by far
than distance
can be measured,
or Love
understood,
when measured
by the minute,
or the hour
or our Time
on this Earth.

Goodnight.

“A good Love
is one that casts you into the wind,
sets you ablaze,
makes you burn through the skies
and ignite the night like a phoenix;
the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire
and you can’t stop running
simply because you keep on burning
everything that you touch!”

C. JoyBell C.

Which countries have plans
for all new cars to be electric, and when?

by Stephen Edelstein 

in Green Car Reports
click here to read more

Plug-in electric cars currently make up a fairly small percentage of the millions of new vehicles sold globally.

But within the next two decades, they may be the only new cars available for sale in certain countries.

Multiple countries have announced plans to end the sale of new internal-combustion cars as a way to cut carbon emissions.

DON’T MISS: Norway’s Goal: All New Cars Will Be Emission-Free By 2025 To Cut Carbon

So which one will be the first?

Norway is likely the friendliest nation in the world for electric cars, and it was the first to discuss making all new cars electrically powered (whether via batteries or hydrogen fuel cells).

The Scandinavian country already offers generous incentives to electric-car buyers, and has built up substantial charging infrastructure.

Electric cars already account for an average 24 percent of new-car sales in Norway, but certain politicians are pushing for them to make up 100 percent of new-car sales by 2025.

This goal was first proposed last August by Ola Elvestuen, a member of Norway’s parliament and Chair of the Standing Committee on Energy and the Environment.

Norway’s major political parties have now agreed to this “complete ban” on new internal-combustion cars, The Independent reported earlier this month.

MORE: India’s ambitious goal: all electric vehicles on roads by 2030

The Netherlands is also moving to end sales of new gasoline and diesel cars by 2025.

In April, the Dutch parliament passed a motion to that effect, although it would still have to be approved by the senate to become law.

Hybrids would still be allowed under the proposed rule, and internal-combustion cars sold before 2025 would be grandfathered for operation until the ends of their lives.

Like Norway, The Netherlands boasts significant electric-car incentives, and electric cars account for a greater share of sales than in most countries.

Both Norway and The Netherlands also have concentrated populations, meaning short average commuting distances that won’t tax shorter-range electric cars.

That’s less true of Germany, where electric cars currently account for a relatively low percentage of sales.

Yet Deputy Economy Minister Rainer Baake believes the country should ban sales of new gasoline and diesel cars by 2030.

Baake believes an emission-free car fleet is the only way to meet Germany’s goal of cutting carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050, according to Bloomberg.

The government also wants to put 1 million electric cars on German roads by 2020.

Right now, electric cars only account for about 0.6 percent of new-vehicle sales in Germany, although an incentives program approved by lawmakers in May could help boost sales.

The country with the most ambitious electric-car goal, though, may be India.

Rather than simply ending sales of new internal-combustion cars, India’s government wants to make all cars in the country electric by 2030.

This would hinge on an incentive program that would allow people to buy electric cars very cheaply.

However, the proposal faces the challenge of instigating mass electric-car adoption in one of the world’s most populous nations, and creating the necessary infrastructure to support all of those new cars.

Many Indian homes do not have access to electricity at all, and the country currently relies heavily on fossil fuels to generate power.

But with some of the worst air pollution in the world, India may have the greatest incentive of any country to make all of the cars on its roads electric.

The Fingerprints of God / Food Sources of Insanity / Friday: Museum of the Americas

Dedicated with my Love, tears and Prayers
to the treasured memory of Elizabeth Ann “Betty” Gaul
December 13, 1926 – January 28, 2016,
pictured below with her precious daughter
Judy Weis.

My Love for you is Eternal,
My tears ever flowing,
And my Prayers are of
Thanksgiving.

Thank you Lord,
for such a beautiful
and Loving
Friend.
She has been a treasured Blessing
in my Life
and so very many others.

betty

Betty became a Light in the Heart of everyone, a beautiful Flower in the Garden of God’s Grace.

“We shall not cease from exploration
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and to know the place
for the first time.”

– T.S. Eliot

images.duckduckgo.com

   You are given beautiful gifts from God.

We think
We pick Flowers,
The Flowers we gather
For someone we Love.

But no.
As real as our strange world
May appear to be,
We model the world we experience
In our mind.
OrbisonIllusionWhich has led some to think
That existence, as we know it,
May be an illusion,
And our reality
Isn’t really real.

This results from scientific investigations
Telling us
That everything we know
Is merely a construction
In our minds,
What we humans perceive
As reality in the world
Around us,
May be no more than
An illusion of thought.

It has far reaching
Implications.

But these implications
Are far more reaching
Than we are capable
Of ever understanding.

Ontology is the philosophical study
Of the nature of being,
Becoming, existence, or reality.
It was called “first philosophy” by Aristotle
in Book IV of his Metaphysics.

My Precious Friends,
As we explore
The nature of being,
Let us choose JOY today,
By not leaning only upon
Our own understanding,
But by having childlike trust
In our Loving Creator’s omniscience.

Allow Him to direct your path,
Which will lead to ultimate joy,
And make your journey,
Even when laden with sorrow,
Joyful.

“As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;
as poor, yet making many rich;
as having nothing,
and yet possessing all things.”

(2 Corinthians 6:10).

We are, after all,
Children
Of God.

intertwining-illusion

Existence, as we know it, may be an illusion.

“One could sum up mind
as a universal aspect of Life and energy,
an aspect with a relationship to the body
mystically similar to the wave’s
relationship to the particle.
And according to modern religious sources,
mind also has a resonance relation
to brain cells,
which vibrate in response to
Spiritual Energy
under laws far beyond
the scope of science.”
– Guy Murchie

Let us explore,
In a philosophical perspective,
One very beautiful aspect
Of our Life.

My Friends,
The Flowers of the field
Pick us,
As surely
As someone,
Yet unknown,
Will choose you
To Love.

flowers 2

         Such sweet awareness.

“I am not my memories.
I am my dreams.”
– Terry Hostetler

Just as we take meaning
To
The symbols of communication,
And not from them,
We impose our reality
Upon what we think
Is in the world around us.

Everything we know, imagine,
Perceive as color, sensation, sound,
Our very thoughts and feelings,
Make a first appearance
In our mind.

flowers

The Flowers of the field pick us.

And the Flowers
Residing in the fertile
Soil of a lonely
Mind,
A longing Heart,
Select one of us,
Who falls in Love
With their beauty,
Delights in their delicate aroma,
Absorbs all the colors
That take your breath
Away.

flowers 3

We look far beyond the beauty.

Yes,
Flowers seemingly move
From a place on
This Earth.

And with your outstretched arms
And Lovingly Guided Hands,
They follow the pathway
Back,
Back to the Love
That breathed Life
Into their fragile being,
To the home
That first was their own,
To a place
In your mind,
To the Heart of their Creator,
The Heart of God,
Who resides within
You.

“The most potent form of energy
is thought.

Thought-waves are cosmic waves
that penetrate all time and space.”
– Camillo Loken

flow

Love breathed Life into their fragile being.

And we gaze
Far beyond their beauty,
Through the Flowers
Of our brief moment in time,
And back again.

Then
We give them to someone,
Who also abides in our Heart.

Yes,
The Flowers of our field
Also
Pick the one
We come to
Love.

For they are planted
In the fertile soil
That is the mind
Of a hungry Soul,
By the Loving Hand
Of God.
william_shakespeare_quote_2And as we
Give away
A beautiful bouquet
Of such sweet awareness,
We are unaware
That Flowers
Growing in another person’s dream,
By the Grace of God,
Become real.

f

     Flowers seemingly move.

They are,
My Friends,
Always there,
Waiting,
Quietly
Blowing in the wind
Of a longing
And lonely mind.

For we are searching,
Ever searching,
To find the courage
To move them
From the field
Of possibilities,
From never,
To Love
Forever.

“Matter
becomes a “wave” of potentials,
expressing itself in the form
of multiple possibilities”
CSglobe

Stargazer_Lily

Flowers by the Grace of God, become real.

Flowers
Planted in the fertile fields
Of our longing to be,
With so much Beauty,
That was
From our awareness
Concealed,
Are like
God’s Divine Plan
Waiting in your Heart and mind
To be revealed.

“We do not see things
as they are.

We see them
as we are.”

– The Talmud

fields

Move them from the field of possibilities, from never, to Love Forever.

The Majesty
Of God’s Love
Conveyed
Throughout His Universe,
Is beautifully displayed.

His Fingerprints
Are on every petal
Of every Flower,
In every field
Of every dream.

And my Soul sings
To think
They were planted
Just for you,
And me.

“There the flowers will be blooming
And the grass will be green
And the skies will be clear and serene,
Where the sun ever beams
In this valley of dreams
And no cloud will be seen.
There will be peace

in the valley
For me some day.”
– Thomas A. Dorsey

My Dear Friends,
If what is real
Is within,
And we now know
That to be,
Then our mind and our Heart
Are the only domains,
And nothing,
No, nothing else
matters,
As you will come
To see.

flower

His Fingerprints are on every petal.

“There are no gloomy skies
When seen through the eyes
Of those who are blessed with love.”
– Mack Discant

What we receive
Is what we bring,
And in every moment
Of Prayerful quiet,
God is listening.

“Once I have known
the mind of God,

the rest are all
details”.

– Albert Einstein

The time will come
When what we know
Is what we
Have always known:
A clear, clarion call
To see the past,
Through our forgiveness,
Never existed
At all.

Yesterday
Is no pathway
To transcend
Sorrow.
Only today
Births tomorrow.

What is past
Is not the road
Down which we travel
To a summer place,
Where people share
Hopes and dreams,
Where Love births
The courage
To care
For the morrow.

“Come, Lord, and tarry not; bonar
Bring the long looked for day;
O why these years of waiting here,
These ages of decay?”
– Horatius Bonar
Hymns of Faith and Hope

The palette of our Resplendent Spirit,
Through fervent Prayer,
Will beautifully blossom
Transcendent colors aware,
As heights we ascend,
And return our fragile being
To the soaring breadth
And sumptuous depths
Of such Splendor
As has no beginning,
And no end.

flowers 2

They were planted just for you and me.

“As the sun,
ere he has risen,
sometimes paints his image
in the firmament,
e’en so the shadows
of events
precede the events,
and in today
already walks tomorrow.”
– William Shakespeare

God
Always resides
In your precious Heart,
In your Life
And in the fertile fields
Of the beautiful flowers
Found in your Dreams.

May God Bless you
And keep you
In His Dreams.

Goodnight.

Americans are eating themselves INSANE.
Causes of mental insanity identified in factory foods
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
A leading consumer health advocate and health freedom activist.

Sources of mental insanity are now identified in factory foods. Mankind is concentrating brain-damaging heavy metals through foods, soils, contaminated water supplies and industrial pollution. People who are buying and consuming factory processed foods are eating themselves into insanity.

The real reason society is so incredibly insane at every level is rooted in the consumption of toxic heavy metals through food, water and other environmental sources. It’s exacerbated by the poisonous heavy metals being fed to factory farmed chickens (and other animals) whose poop is harvested and spread on soils that are used to grow foods for humans.

My Dear Friends, please select ORGANIC foods. Our food chain is now polluted. Yes, you are crazy to buy anything else. Or you may become so.

                                What Are the Best Fish to Eat?

Among the safest in terms of contamination, and the highest in healthy omega-3 fat, is wild-caught Alaskan and sockeye salmon. Neither is allowed to be farmed, and are therefore always wild-caught. The risk of sockeye accumulating high amounts of mercury and other toxins is reduced because of its short life cycle, which is only about three years.

Additionally, bioaccumulation of toxins is also reduced by the fact that it doesn’t feed on other, already contaminated, fish. The two designations you want to look for on the label are: “Alaskan salmon” (or wild Alaskan salmon) and “Sockeye salmon.”  read more

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Considered by some to be the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein played a central role in analytic philosophy.

Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Characterization of Philosophy:
It is not a theory,
Or a doctrine,
but rather an activity.
It is an activity
Of clarification
(of thoughts),
And more so,
Cf critique

Happiness linked to longer life
by Amanda MacMillan, Health.com

Being happy doesn’t just improve the quality of your life. According to a new study, it may increase the quantity of your life as well.

Older people were up to 35% less likely to die during the five-year study if they reported feeling happy, excited, and content on a typical day. And this was true even though the researchers took factors such as chronic health problems, depression, and financial security out of the equation. read more

Live to be 100

Anyone born after the year 2000: They’ll probably live to 100, according to research from Denmark.

We could live that long, too, says Walter Bortz II, MD, a clinical associate professor of medicine at Stanford University: “What’s holding us back are bad habits.”

Focus on what you can do, like loading up on fruits and veggies (add five years), working out five days a week (add two to four years), and cutting down on stress (may add up to six years). read more

The Only Gift Worthy / Household Items That Cause Cancer / Three Person Babies? / Movies

“What is reason?
Knowledge informed by sympathy,
intelligence in the arms of Love.”
– Edward Abby.

Butterfly

The glory of God’s World is all around us! Spend time with Nature and you will discover thousands of beautiful things that God created  –  just for you. He has created a magnificent world full of majestic beauty that will inspire your heart and mind and draw you closer to His goodness.  (Photo by William C. Anderson)

“Love
Leaves highly polished stones,
Glistening in the warm
And bright sunlight,
Along the beautiful pathway
To Freedom.”

We can see with our eyes.
But close your eyes,
And look into the real light of this life,
Into the Light of your heart,
Into that which transcends
What has been illumined,
Into what will be.

Close your eyes.
Listen to the song
Long laid to rest,
Seldom sung,
But as a child.
The one you heard –
So long ago,
The one you were –
And, so long to hear again.

It is the song of your heart,
Beating in time
With all that has gone before,
With all it longed to be.

You shall never see
As clearly as today.
The lens of your heart
Can focus your mind
Upon the things in life
That truly have meaning,
That matter.

Sunset 2

The glow of your being,
The essence of your existence,
Lies deeply embedded
Within the Love you feel
For someone else.

Within the few and precious moments
You share with another,
Lies a Gift greater
Than any treasure on this earth,
A Gift only you can give,
A Gift so alive with Love,
That it will live forever –
The Gift of knowing, surely knowing,
That someone is alive in your heart,
And will live there
Forever.

Such Love never dies.
Such Love has always lived,
Placed in your heart
By the precious Love of God,
This Love comes through you,
Not from you.

It is the only Gift
Worthy of bestowing,
Worthy of receipt.

It is yours,
If discovered,
Treasured,
Shared.

Your heart is not yours.
It belongs to another,
And always has.
Time is measured
By its humble beat –
The pulsing of its radiance
You will never feel,
For the vibrancy of its being
Always takes flight,
Seeking shelter
In the dark corner of another life,
To light the pathway,
To see.

You are,
By the Grace of God,
This Light
.
  May the Light of your precious Life
Bring someone out of darkness,
And into the warm, bright, joyful
Sunlight of Salvation –
Your Salvation,
And the precious one you save.

“Till the stars fall around me
And find me all alone.
When the sun comes a-singing
I’ll still be waiting.”

6 common household items that cause cancer
from: naturalnews.com

Air fresheners –  A hotbed of poisonous substances that could leave you and your loved ones infertile, brain-damaged or chronically ill. Tests conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council found that most air fresheners contain phthalates, which among other things interfere with male hormone production.

Most air fresheners are also loaded with other cancer-causing volatile organic compounds as well, which interfere with reproduction, respiration and cellular regeneration. A 2008 study conducted by Anne Steinemann at the University of Washington found that all air fresheners tested emitted chemicals known to be carcinogenic, meaning they cause cancer.

Instead of toxic commercial air fresheners, stick with all-natural essential oils, which can be applied to the skin or released into the air from a diffuser. read more

Candles  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found that nearly half of all scented candles on the market contain lead wiring in their wicks, which is released into the air upon burning. This lead leads to hormone disruption, behavioral disorders and other health problems.

Many candles are also made of paraffin wax which, when burned, generates two highly toxic compounds, benzene and toluene, both of which are carcinogenic. Artificial fragrances and dyes are also present in many scented candles, which when burned end up in your lungs.

Art supplies –  Epoxy materials, glues, acrylic paints and solvents, drawing utensils and other supplies used to create art contain chemicals linked to allergies, organ damage and cancer.

The federal Labeling Hazardous Art Materials Act requires that all art supplies sold in the U.S. bear warnings. It is recommended that users of such supplies purchase only products that are certified by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI). ACMI-certified products undergo rigorous evaluations by independent toxicologists to make sure that they are safe for everyone, including small children.

Shampoos & Conditioners – Toxins are in cosmetics containing ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate that generate cancer-causing byproducts when used. Other carcinogenic additives commonly used in hair care products include polyethylene glycol (PEG) and cocamide DEA.

Safe Cosmetics has put together a list of the safest and most eco-friendly shampoos on the market, which are free of most or all of the chemicals listed in its “Skin Deep” database, which you can access here: SafeCosmetics.org.

Antiperspirant Deodorants –  Avoid aluminum chlorohydrate, which can absorb directly into the skin and promote the formation of breast cancer. Aluminum from antiperspirants is also believed to contribute to brain diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Other toxic additives in deodorants include parabens, artificial preservatives that mimic estrogen in the body and promotes the growth of cancer cells. Parabens are also linked to gastrointestinal damage, nausea and central nervous system depression.

Shower curtains – Plastic shower curtains act something like a radiator for toxic chemical release. Many shower curtains off-gas harmful chemicals known as volatile organic compounds that are known to damage the respiratory tract, central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

Augustus Caesar keeps a watchful eye over Mary Alice (she earlier beheaded him!)

If your shower curtain has that unique “new shower curtain smell,” it is releasing deadly chemicals — potentially upwards of 108 different VOCs, that are harming you. It is important to buy only non-toxic, PVC-free shower curtains made without harmful chemicals.

Some of the best options include shower curtains made from hemp, linen, birch, organic cotton or PEVA, which you can learn more about here:

MPs in the U.K say yes to Three-Person Babies
from click here

MPs have voted in favor of the creation of babies with DNA from two women and one man. The UK is now set to become the first country to introduce laws to allow the creation of babies from three people. The technique stops genetic diseases being passed from mother to child. This change that will be passed down through the generations. It also asks questions about the future. Some people argue we are now on a slippery slope to further genetic modification of children.

A further vote is required in the House of Lords. It everything goes ahead then the first such baby could be born next year. Critics say they will continue to fight against the technique that raises too many ethical and safety concerns.
