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

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

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

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

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

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

Blaise Pascal
Pensées VII(425)

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

There is
no other reason
that it beats.

Go where your Heart leads you.

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

So go
where your Heart
leads you.
And be.

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

“Love
is an exclusive reality

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

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

Rivers running
deep
know how we feel.

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

Do not neglect
the beautiful destiny
God desires for
YOU.

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

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

   Do so in the name of Love.

A Philosophy
of Love
is a declaration for
truly living.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Man’s kidneys are relatively poor
water conservers

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

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

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

Dr. Phillip Bishop

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

Yes,
Listen.

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

      Let a flower pick you.

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

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

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

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

Goodnight.

                        They live for Love.

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

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

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

                To be truly alive, live for LOVE!

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

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

What We Hold in Our Hearts / Habits That Are Aging You / MUSEUM of SCIENCE and HISTORY

sun-setting-on-mts

Layered richness and truly beautiful aspects.

It is hard to imagine
a more joyful way
to inaugurate a beautiful day
than to have
great works of art
created by God
for you and me
hung on the walls
of our awareness.

Studying
the layered richness
and truly beautiful aspects
of what is in Nature,
offers not only
time well spent,
but a Spiritual Link.

For we are a part
of everything in Nature.
We are one
with what we so admire.
Yes,
we
are truly
one.

reflected-water

       Unbelievable beauty.

We need look
no further than
Genesis 3:19
to see just how much
we were, will be and are a part
of everything and everyone
around us:

“By the sweat of your brow
you will eat food
until you return to the ground,
for out of it you were taken;
for you are dust,
and to dust you will return.
– Genesis 3:19

sun-through-branches

 We are a part of everything.

As I observe
the unbelievable beauty
found in God’s Natural World,
I become even more
fascinated
by the way everything
is made even more beautiful
by the the harsh, defining
elements of Nature,
by Life and Living.

The effects
of time and wear speak
and tell a story.
They are as much
a part of being,
of existence,
as anything else.

galaxy-n

Great works of art created by God.

Everything,
including you and me,
is transformed
by what we endure,
by our trials and sufferance,
and is a carrier of memory
containing a vestige of the past,
a relic of what was Life.

“I close my eyes.
Only for a moment
and the moment’s gone.

All my dreams
Pass before my eyes
with curiosity.

Dust in the wind.
All they are is
dust in the wind.

Same old song.
Just a drop of water
in an endless sea.

All we do
crumbles to the ground,
though we refuse to see.

Nothing lasts forever
but the earth and sky,

it slips away.
And all your money
won’t another minute buy.”

– Kerry Livgren

“Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.”                                – Norman B. Rice

The narrative aspects
of Loving
all the Natural beauty
that surrounds us,
that dwells within us,
offers not only an awareness,
but a truly Spiritual connection.

An unexpected relationship,
a feeling of old familiarity,
breaks the long silence
of our ignorance,
as we acquire a quality of
very dynamic Human Love.
For
what makes us
truly Human,
is Love.

two-geese-b

The connection to ALL things beautiful.

Without Love,
the Love of God
and our Love
for each other,
there is absolutely nothing left
when this Life is ended,
nothing but the destiny
of dust.

“And the dust returneth
to the earth as it was,
and the Spirit
returneth unto God

who gave it.”
Ecclesiastes 12:7

There is indeed
a Sacred value
to sense the connection
to ALL things beautiful.
Suddenly,
we recognize
how everything is beautiful,
and how beautiful
we are.

We possess
our own Internal Light.
The Artist
who made us
has put Light
into us,
and into the Landscape
of our Being.

Someday, perhaps.
the inner light will shine forth from us,
and then we’ll need no other light.” 
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Love’s labors are never lost.

The feeling you have
looking at His beautiful work,
is a work of art
unto itself.
This feeling
is called
Love.

Sometimes
meditative time
releases you into
another dimension of awareness –
another World.
And then Today
has
its own internal Light.

In a profound sense
every man has two halves
to his being;
he is not one person
so much as two persons
trying to act in unison.
I believe that in the heart
of each human being
there is something which I can only describe
as a “child of darkness”
who is equal and complementary
to the more obvious
“child of Light.” 

– Laurens van der Post

We hold
in our Hearts
an expression of what lies
beyond
the boundaries of Love’s
abstractions.

lions

Without being aware of thinking and feeling.

Love’s labors
are never lost
when we come Home
to our Heart.

“A smile
is the light in the window
of your face
that tells people
you’re at home.

– Author Unknown

When in Love,
we think and feel
without being aware
of thinking and feeling.
We dream
and messages from our subconscious
are revealed
by our dreams.
And at these times
we glimpse the Eternal
and aspire
to see the Perfection
of our own Creation,
of who WE
truly are.

clouds-b

         The beauty in every day.

The Beautifully
and Perfectly Imperfect
becomes a Fire of Passion
that cannot be
extinguished.

“Your time has come
to shine.
All your dreams
are on their way.”
– Simon & Garfunkel

Life and living
are the Gifts
of Love and Loving.
And no greater Gift
can ever be given.

My Dear Friends,
the purest form
of shape and color,
is the Love you feel.
The beauty
in every day
can bring about
a dynamic shift
in your consciousness.

“People are like
stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine
when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in
their true beauty is revealed
only if there is light from within.”

– Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Love
takes us into
the dawn
of a new day.
And that day,
My Dear Friend,
is Today.

Now
close your tired eyes
and open your precious
Heart.

Goodnight.

“In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.” – Blaise Pascal

 From our friends at Health.Com:
Everyday Habits That Are Aging You
By LINDA MELONE

Are you aging faster than your years? If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, it may be time to evaluate some of your daily routines. The foods you eat and even the way you sleep can add years to your face and may shorten your lifespan.

“People think multitasking is good, but you don’t actually get anything done – you just create more stress,” says Raymond Casciari, MD, chief medical officer of St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, Calif. Several studies show that chronic stress triggers the release of free radicals, the unstable molecules that damage cells and are responsible for aging. Instead of trying to do it all, Dr. Casciari suggests concentrating on one task at a time and only moving on once you finish it.

Your sweet tooth may also be adding years to your face. “Internally, sugar molecules attach themselves to protein fibers in each of our cells,” says Susan Stuart, MD, a San Diego, Calif. board-certified dermatologist. This damaging process, known as glycation, can result in a loss of radiance, dark circles under the eyes, loss of tone, puffiness, an increase in fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of facial contours and increased pore size. Pass on the sugary treats if you want to preserve your youthful glow.

Skimping on sleep not only results in dark bags under the eyes – it has also been linked to a shorter lifespan, says Dr. Casciari, who founded a sleep laboratory at St. Joseph’s Hospital. “Sleeping within the seven-hour range is optimal,” he says. Get to bed earlier if you have the symptoms of sleep deprivation, which include a lack of daytime energy, mental sluggishness, attention problems, or weight gain, Dr. Casciari says.

Regularly gluing yourself to the TV is another. In a British Journal of Sports Medicine study of about 11,000 Australians ages 25 and older, researchers found that for every hour of television watched, adults cut their life expectancy by 22 minutes. What’s more, people who spent an average of six hours a day watching TV lived five years less than their non-viewing counterparts. “This effect is more about sitting and being inactive than the TV watching,” says Dr. Casciari. “When you sit for more than 30 minutes your body begins to deposit sugar into your cells, which makes it much more likely you’ll be overweight as well.” Whether you’re watching TV or at your desk, get up every 30 minutes to walk around, says Dr. Casciari.

People who spend most of their days parked in a chair are at increased risk for kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, not to mention obesity. Exercising regularly helps to prevent these health issues and keeps you living longer, according to a study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Study participants who exercised 150 minutes or more a week lived 10 to 13 years longer than the inactive bunch.

Sleeping on your stomach or on your side with your face smashed into the pillow can create wrinkles and accelerate aging. “The connective tissue and collagen in your face becomes weaker and less supportive with age,” says James C. Marotta, MD, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and skincare expert. “So when you sleep on the same side of your face night after night, your skin won’t smooth out or spring back as quickly as it did when you were young.” Those crease lines from your pillow can become permanent. Sleep on your back or invest in a satin pillowcase to keep skin smooth.

It’s tempting to crank up the heat indoors. But whether you light up the fireplace or turn up the thermostat, both suck moisture out of the air, says Dr. Marotta. “This can lead to dry, inflamed skin, which over time has aging effects.” Investing in a humidifier helps counteract the dry air (40 to 60% humidity is optimal) and can free your skin from itching, scratching, and flaking. Alternatively, Dr. Marotta recommends placing a wet towel over a radiator or a bowl of cold water in the room as a way to add back some of the lost moisture.

Drinking dark-colored beverages through a straw can prevent stains on your teeth, but just as squinting can eventually cause wrinkles to form around your eyes, pursing your lips can also bring about premature wrinkles around the mouth. “This also occurs when smoking cigarettes,” says Janet Prystowsky, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York. Pour your bottled beverages into a drinking glass to avoid puckering up.

Some fat is necessary for maintaining a youthful feeling and appearance, says Franci Cohen, a certified nutritionist and exercise physiologist from Brooklyn, NY. “Heart – healthy omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish (such as salmon and mackerel) and certain nuts (such as walnuts and flax seeds) keep skin supple and plump, thereby preventing wrinkles, and they boost both heart and brain health as well,” she says. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends including fish in your meals at least twice a week.
