The River of Life / Supplements for Diabetes / WEDNESDAY trip: Modern Art Museum

 

The River of Life
swiftly flows and evermore
down a slope
that is steep
and seldom yielding
to our desires.
But Blessings deep
are carved into the marrow
of tomorrow.

Thus
we are molded
into that which
survives
and Time will keep.

      Carved into the marrow of tomorrow.

As we borrow Today
from our children,
beautiful moments are forged
into Wonder,
and then
we sleep.

And when
you are wide awake
in the middle of a Dream,
when the Spirit emerges
from the physical Being,
to freely roam
Ethereal space,
the rhythm of Life
is locked in place
with Cosmic Time
that leaves no
trace.

Yes,
when we are
far, far away
in Dreams
that tell us who we really are,
we see
not just the the poetic imagination,
but the Spiritual,
not only the day
in night,
but what may be,
second sight.

The cycle of Dreams
night after night,
like the breathing
of the Oceans,
the swelling of the
Tides,
is much like
our emotions,
and the Seasons
of the Heart.

Do not
depart
from your precious
Dreams.

Goodnight.

             Like the breathing of the Oceans.

On Wednesday, April 18, 2018
we will meet at the

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
3200 Darnell Street

Herbs and Supplements for Diabetes

Using Supplements for Diabetes Treatment
It is always best to let the foods you eat provide your vitamins and minerals. However, more and more people are turning to alternative medicines and supplements. In fact, according to the American Diabetes Association, diabetics are more likely to use supplements than those without the disease.

Supplements should not be used to replace standard diabetes treatment. Doing so can put your health at risk.

It is important to talk to your doctor before using any supplements. Some of these products can interfere with other treatments and medications. Just because a product is natural does not mean it is safe to use.

A number of supplements have shown promise as diabetes treatments. These include the following:
Cinnamon
Chinese medicine has been using cinnamon for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. It has been the subject of numerous studies to determine its effect on blood glucose levels. A 2011 study has shown that cinnamon, in whole form or extract, helps lower fasting blood glucose levels. More studies are being done, but cinnamon is showing promise for helping to treat diabetes.

Chromium
Chromium is an essential trace element. It is used in the metabolism of carbohydrates. However, research on the use of chromium for diabetes treatment is mixed. Low doses are safe for most people, but there is a risk that chromium could make blood sugar go too low. High doses also have the potential to cause kidney damage.

Vitamin B-1
Vitamin B-1 is also known as thiamine. Many people with diabetes are thiamine deficient. This may contribute to some diabetes complications. Low thiamine has been linked to heart disease and blood vessel damage.

Thiamine is water-soluble. It has difficulty getting into the cells where it’s needed. However, benfotiamine, a supplemental form of thiamine, is lipid-soluble. It more easily penetrates cell membranes. Some research suggests that benfotiamine can prevent diabetic complications. However, other studies have not shown any positive effects.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant.
Some studies suggest it may:
• reduce oxidative stress
• lower fasting blood sugar levels
• decrease insulin resistance
However, more research is needed. Furthermore, ALA needs to be taken with caution, as it has the potential to lower
blood sugar levels to dangerous levels.

Bitter Melon
Bitter melon is used to treat diabetes-related conditions in countries like Asia, South America, and others. There is a lot of data on its effectiveness as a treatment for diabetes in animal and lab studies.
However, there is limited human data on bitter melon. There are not enough clinical studies on human. The human studies currently available are not of high quality.

Green Tea
Green tea contains polyphenols, which are antioxidants.
The main antioxidant in green tea is known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Laboratory studies have suggested that EGCG may have numerous health benefits including:
• lower cardiovascular disease risk
• prevention of type 2 diabetes
• improved glucose control
better insulin activity
Studies on diabetic patients have not shown health benefits. However, green tea is generally considered safe.

Resveratrol
Resveratrol is a chemical found in wine and grapes. In animal models, it helps prevent high blood sugar. Animal studies have also shown that it can reduce oxidative stress. However, human data is limited. It is too soon to know if supplementation helps with diabetes.

Magnesium
Magnesium is an essential nutrient. It helps regulate blood pressure. It also regulates insulin sensitivity. Supplemental magnesium may improve insulin sensitivity in diabetics.
A high magnesium diet may also reduce the risk of diabetes. Researchers have found a link between higher magnesium intake, lower rates of insulin resistance, and diabetes.

A Wind That Blows Lonely / The Antithesis of Love / Friday: Modern Art Museum

Love is the answer,
and the Prayer.

child-and-mom

Look into the future smiling back.

There’s a wind that blows
lonely
across the barren plains
of our memory.
Soft,
it caresses the face
that refused to turn
into the wind,
toward the ones
so Loved,
to look into
the future
smiling back.
And now,
the past
no longer belongs
to us.

“Yes I knowdon
how lonely life can be.

The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free.
But I don’t let the evening
bring me down

Now that you’re around me.

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
This is my belief.”
– Don Mclean

flowers-and-lake-b

Life itself is an answer to Prayer.

God still whispers
into the restless void
of our lonely aching Hearts.

But so very often,
we recognize not
His answers to our Prayers,
simply because
we have never had need to pray
for so very many Blessings in Life
already bestowed
upon us.

No,
we never had need
for such Prayer,
for our needs were met
long before
awareness
needed a reason
to be.

So very many Blessings in Life
we never recognized
were answers
to Prayer,
Prayers we never had the need
to say.

“Therefore I tell you,
do not worry about your life,
what you will eat, or about your body,
what you will wear.
For life is more than food,
and the body more than clothing.
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap,
they have neither storehouse nor barn,
and yet God feeds them.
Of how much more value are you
than the birds!”
Luke 12:22-24

Such is the Love
of a Mother and a Father
for a deeply Loved
Child.
Such is the Love
of your Father in Heaven
for YOU.

fountain-in-forest

    You are an answer to Prayer.

Life itself,
is an answer
to Prayer.

You
are an answer
to Prayer.

Look about you.
There is nothing,
absolutely NOTHING,
that does not answer
some Prayer,
somehow,
somewhere,
at sometime,

by someone.

island-with-tree-b

   Silence has the loudest voice.

Dear Friends,
there is scarcely anyone

who does not desire something
beyond
what is good for them.
So rather than hurt you
when the honesty’s too much,
God answers some Prayer
with the tender syllables
of silence,
until the moment
subsides.

Silence is like a River of Grace
inviting us to leap unafraid
into its beckoning depths.
It is dark and mysterious
in the waters of Grace.
Yet in the silent darkness
we are given new eyes.
In the Heart of the Divine
we can see more clearly who we are.
We are renewed and cleansed
in this
River of Silence.

– MACRINA WIEDERKEHR, Seven Sacred Pauses

Such is Love
in you,
that in the Sacred stillness
and the quiet
of a thoughtful moment,
with Wisdom and Grace,

  you proclaim a silent Love
Divine.

Silence is the only language
of the realized.

“There are times
when silence
has the loudest voice.”
Leroy Brownlow

By simply accepting
what God already provides,
we are made aware
and acknowledge
Prayer
never offered,
never needed,
but answered
just the same.

My Dear Friends,
Love

is the answer,
and
the Prayer.

“In the darkness of my dreaming,
the Light of you will stay.
If I could be close beside you,

If I could be where you are,
If I could reach out and touch you,
and bring you back home.
Is there a way I can find you
Is there a sign I should know,
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home
to me.”
– Roma Ryan

So very often
we find ourselves
in the midst
of the greatest Answer
to the most fervent Prayer:
that we are
deeply
Loved.

Welcome Home.

With a deep seated Love of Courage to map the unknown.

The Antithesis of
Love

My Precious Friends,
Addiction
is the antithesis
of Love.
It can become
the destroyer of Worlds –
of your World,
and sadly,
that of your child.

Little understood,
like Cancer,
it devours the very substance
of the Life
we pretend goes on.
The fabric of our existence
feeds our addictions.
And the bacterial excrement of
Alcohol,
like cancer, can devour
and permanently change
the very structure
of the Human brain,
and more importantly,
the Hopes and Dreams,
of our precious Children.

brain

Alcohol, like cancer, can devour and permanently change the very structure of the Human brain.

People who have been drinking
large amounts of alcohol
for long periods of time
develop serious and persistent
changes IN THE BRAIN.
(
National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism)

It is
much like an enemy in battle,
sneaking behind the lines
to disarm the troops
before they can engage
in combat,
while front line soldiers
stare straight ahead,
totally unaware,
wondering what is going on,
and why we cannot attack
and win.

Our ignorance,
our blind arrogance,
our naivety,
disarm us
and we never know
how!

“Sometimes we know,
sometimes we don’t.

Sometimes we give,
sometimes we won’t.

Sometimes we’re strong,
sometimes we’re wrong.

Sometimes we cry.

Well,
we’re gonna have to sit down
and think it right through.
If we’re only Human
what more can we do?
– Van Morrison

Our other addictions –
to linear thinking –
becoming too focused to get
the BIG picture,

to compressing time,
to the allure of complexity and dependency
upon technology,
to drugs we know
virtually nothing about,
have shrunk the number of outlets
for the daring, aggressive nature
of mankind,
that fought the good fight,
with a deep seated
Love of Courage
to map the unknown
and go
where mankind
has never gone
before.

This saddens,
but doesn’t surprise.
The Heroes
of our proud Past,
the Soldiers of our good fortune,
no longer are
of the same branch,
on the same tree,
or even
in the same forest.

The courage
to Love one another
enough to fight
the good fight,
to vanquish
the enemy within,
we cannot accept,
because
we cannot even recognize
that it is us.

“We shall meet the enemy,
and not only may he be ours,
he may be us.”
– Walter C. Kelly, Jr.

But when Life
breaks you,
and brings you
to your knees,
know that God will hear you
through your fervent Prayer,
and hold you
in warm embrace.

akiane“If we experienced the present through Eternity
and Eternity through the present,
we would know true Love.”
– Akiane Kramarik
from her upcoming book:
Eternity Is Not That Long

Love
can command you,
it can rule over
your precious Heart

or
you can let it
pass you by.

But please remember:

Everything
outside of Love
is a lie.

Do not be trapped
within a prison
of doubt.
The Loving You
is no illusion.

The Honesty of your Love
is the only
Truth.

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you
free.

– John 8:32

Goodnight.

Love is an answer and a Prayer.

Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, SpongeBob, Hanna-Barbera, and Peanuts) to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity.

The Modern maintains one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art in the United States.

FINANCIAL: No fee for admission.

GIFT SHOP: Has fascinating items. (I bought a DOG Bowl! Stop laughing!)

inclineth a man’s mind to atheism,
but depth in philosophy
bringeth men’s minds
about to religion”
.
– Lord Bacon

At window

Look out the window of this brief view of Life.

God gives us truly beautiful gifts.

This we know
With eyes to see,
And ears to hear,
And the mirror of our mind
To remember.

rendezvous_by_struller

Truly beautiful gifts

But it is the Heart
That can plainly tell
You are one
Of those gifts.

Our Hearts daily sing,
At times,
As quietly
As the dark is
Night.

But we little know,
Deep inside,
Just how rare and beautiful it is
For a person, of any age,
To acknowledge
In the time we have on this Earth
The dynamic and wonderful deeds
We do for others.

boy with birds

Gaze into the Infinite and beautiful sky.

melitaea_phoebe_by_struller

How rare and beautiful.

We never seem to do justice
To ourselves in recognizing
The thoughts and efforts
We have contributed to
Countless friends and family,
And those we have
Not met.

Justice
Is a fleeting thing,
And can appear meaningless
In the Grand View of All things.

But the Love of God,
As it flows through you
From our Father
In Heavens Above,
Sees you.
He feels you,
He knows
You,
He is you.

boy and sand

The Love of God flows through you.

The Heart
That beats within His child
Is His.
And throughout your precious Being
His dynamic presence flows
From an Everlasting Grace.

compound_eye_by_struller

Most go never being known.

Listen
To the song
Of your Heart.
Look out the window
Of this brief view of Life.
Gaze into the Infinite and Beautiful sky.
You will see many memories,
Moments that passed by,
Emotions more real
Than are you.

The Human Spirit
Is able to return
To the Love
From which it came.

TREE in hand

The story of your Life begins and ends with you.

The stories you share
Have a Life of their own.
Moments of great Love,
And greater Sacrifice,
Flow like a Sacred River
To an Infinite Sea
Of what we feebly know,
Of what has been,
Can ever be.

flushed_by_struller

The course we chart in Life carries more than we.

The course we chart in Life
Carries more than we.
It harbors our Dreams,
And Memories,
All the Love we came to be,
The Compassion we felt
For others,
And
So very much more
We shall never truly know,
Never see.

This is Life.

But the story of your Life
Begins and ends
With you.

Every page
Knows your name,
Each chapter begins
Anew.

A story that will always be remembered.

Save by God,
Never being unknown.

God’s Love for you
Will never let you keep
The love you have for others
Forever inside.

Did He not leave the ninety and nine in search of one?

ugly_beauty_by_struller

So very much more we shall never know, never see.

God conveys His Dreams
To protect us,
To heal,
To change us
And save us
From ourselves,
To guide us
In the direction we take.
Should we humble ourselves
In Prayer,
Should we ask,
We shall receive.

One Blessed Night
We will, at last,
At long last,
Listen
To His Heart
As He speaks to ours.

You are a dream.
And when you dream,
A dream within
A dream.

If you have Faith

But yourself?

Exercise your Faith
In Prayer.
Your Faith

To connect your Heart
To the never ending,
Ever spinning
Windmills of your mind,

Your Love drifts from Life into your Dreams.

My thanks to Kayla
sharing the following:

Safflower is in the “battle of the bulge”.
With millions of people praising this so called “miracle pill”
that you take as a supplement to lose weight,
it has been getting a lot of attention
since it was recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show.

Surprisingly,
many people who struggle daily with their weight
have yet to hear about this powerful option.
Those that have heard of Safflower are confused
about what it is, how to use it,
and how to avoid falling for ineffective formulas.

lycaena_dispar_by_mantide

Great Courage and Dignity reside within your Faith.

According to Dr. Oz,
Safflower works in more than one way.
The first way is that it goes in and causes the body
to burn fat from within “like a furnace,”
literally melting the fat away.

orthetrum__cancellatum_by_mantide

We are Beloved Beyond Belief.

The second feature, and the most important one,
is that after Safflower has burnt the fat,
you’re left with the sleek, lean muscle
that was buried underneath.

The third feature
is its ability to strengthen
not only the muscles,
but the bones as well.

it’s a miracle
flower to fight your fat”

Results of a 12-week clinical study are
published in the US National Library of Medicine
(National Institutes of Health).

Without Faith, what have you but yourself?

Safflower contains no stimulants.
Safflower contains 10% Pure Safflower,
the active ingredient in CLA Safflower Oil.
Safflower has been found to burn belly fat
from within your body, boosting weight loss
by more than 33%.
Studies have shown that daily
Safflower intake can increase lean muscle
and bone density.

  A POET’S EYE
–  by Wm. C. Anderson

Long after the distant drums
Of war are played,

After the games of death,

When nothing is left inside,
But the memory of those
We loved more than this life,

It is not music we hear,

Not the cadence of a drum,

But silence,

The absence of a heart beat

Multiplied millions of times.

After much reflection
And such sorrow,
Long, long after our deep despair,

We feel a single Beat

Of God’s Heart,

The Power of Everlasting Love,

In an Act of Forgiveness
For silencing so many others.

Clouds in the Heavens above,
In a poet’s eye,
Cry drops of rain,
Like tears Reflecting the love,
Found in other eyes.

Sacred water pours
Down upon our lives.

And, drop by drop,
We are Blessed

By the Love of One

Who washes away our sin,
Nourishes Precious Life.

The rain, like tears,
Bathes the barren plain,
And carries away
Thirst, sorrow and pain,
To give us hope again.

Tears that fall,
And drops of rain,
Are in a loving way,
The same.

“We have an obligation not only to our students parents,
but to students to make sure their placement is right.

I have been reading Jim Delisle’s new book
Dumbing Down America
.
I have to tell you that I can’t put it down.
There is so much in his book that I could react to that its unreal.
I really hope that you get it, and read it.”

URBAN THEATER: NEW YORK ART IN THE 1980s. Vibrant, vital, and discordant, the New York art scene of the 1980s gave rise to some of the contemporary art world’s most recognizable features.

As the artists who emerged in that decade now set records at auction, the era is ripe to be reexamined. Representing in turns a cool irony, reflections on media culture, consumerism, cartoons, and street art. The work collected here re-creates the tense energy of a grittier New York through painting, performance, sculpture, & photography.

Chief Curator Michael Auping says, “New York was the loudest and the most intense. If you wonder why the art world is like it is today, refer to the ’80s. That’s where it began.”

The exhibition presents iconic works that capture the mood, energy, and critical themes that distinguished the art of the 1980s in one of the world’s greatest urban centers.

New York was the center of a new synthesis of ideas about the relationship between art and popular culture and inspired a new audaciousness. The decade’s most critically acclaimed artists will be presented including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Troy Brauntuch, Francesco Clemente, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Robert Longo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Philip Taaffe, and Andy Warhol.

The Modern maintains one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art in the United States.
