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.

    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.

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.

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.

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.

    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.

From our friends at the Underground Health Reporter:
Prevent Cancer in Your Home in 6 Easy Steps

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.

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.

The Embrace of Enduring Love / Light Pollution / Trip to the ZOO

The Embrace of Enduring Love
    – by Wm. C. Anderson

Among all the precious moments
Blended with the swirling stars,
When was there time,
Time to say goodbye?

Never, never in recorded time
That erases the pulsing sky.
Never, even in the moment
Chosen for us to die.

Never found in every sound
That asks where or why.
Never will there be time,
Time to say goodbye.

Farewell is not a pathway
Nor portal through this day,
One cannot bid goodbye to Love.
No parting stays today.

In the Embrace of Enduring Love
God does not forsake tomorrow.
He paves our solitary path with Love,
That leads me past my sorrow.

To places in my heart.
Forever alive, forever in Love,
Forever felt beyond farewell,
Forever in His Embrace from Above.

What is “light pollution?”

Recent studies have shown that “light pollution”—defined as excess or obtrusive light at night – can actually have serious health effects.

Researchers have found that exposure to bright nocturnal light can decrease the human body’s production of melatonin, a hormone secreted at night that regulates our sleep/wake cycles. And decreased melatonin production has in turn been linked to higher rates of breast cancer in women.

Cole and his associates examine results of science experiment.

Cole and associates examine results of his his science experiment.

Light at night is now clearly a risk factor for breast cancer,” says David Blask, a researcher at the Cooperstown, New York-based Mary Imogene Bassett Research Institute. “Breast tumors are awake during the day, and melatonin puts them to sleep at night.”

Light Pollution Leads to More Breast Cancer in Industrialized Countries.
Epidemiologist Richard Stevens of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory first discovered the link between breast cancer and light pollution in the late 1980s. Stevens found that breast cancer rates were significantly higher in industrialized countries, where nighttime lighting is prevalent.

Night Shift Workers Run Higher Risk of Breast Cancer from Light

Lending credence to Stevens’ research are the findings of another researcher, William Hrushesky of the South Carolina-based Dorn Veterans Affairs Medical Center, who discovered that female night shift workers have a 50 percent greater risk of developing breast cancer than other working women. He also found that blind women have high melatonin concentrations and unusually low rates of breast cancer.

How to Reduce Risks of Breast Cancer from Light Pollution

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.
