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.

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.

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.

    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

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.

cancerAnd in an update of December 17, 2015:
Cancer is overwhelmingly
a result of environmental factors.
The new study, in the journal Nature,
used four approaches to conclude
only 10-30% of cancers were down
to the way the body naturally functions

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. He could devour me in one gulp for dessert. And then, all that would be left is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . burp!

     While I am whispering Amen.

Christmas is about giving,
And receiving
The Love of Christ.
It’s a celebration
Of living,
And of the Gift
Of Life.

My Dear Friends,
God brought us into this world
As a child,
And He wants His child
Back again.

Jesuschildren

          We are all children of God.

“See what great love
the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called
children of God!
And that is what we are!”
– I John 3:1

baby

He Blesses us
By bringing children
Into our lives.
And in many ways, some unaware,
Childlike are we,
By pretense of our being.
Try as we may
Not to be,
We are all children of God,
Even on Christmas Day.

eyes_girl

      We can become a child again.

There is an infinite
Number of days
Between now and forever.
And an infinite
Number of ways
To ever and ever
Say “I Love You”.
Do not count them,
Live them,
And Love the time away,
And say
“I Love You”
Each and every day
In countless ways.

baby

  He wants His child back again.

To turn our time around
And begin again,
To see infinity
In a drop of rain,
And a rainbow
In our tears of joy,
To finally stop the pain,
Become His child again.
And in our very precious lives,
Our childhood will remain.

trees

       It’s a celebration of living.

When we know,
When we finally know,
In our brief
And shining moment,
In the time we have left
To call this Life
A living thing,
My breath can sound
Like something
I would sing,
Long enough to form
A single precious thought
About another
Beautiful, living, breathing thing.

About you.

Newborn_Baby

Never will Love end, it only begins over and over again.

And in my voice,
In its last offering,
Will you hear
Above all and every other
Living thing,
A perpetual lullaby
I sing,
“I Love You”
Over and over again.

For never will Love end,
It only begins
Over and over again.
It is a beautiful song that sings,
The sound of a Human Heart,
Beating in Time
With God,
Who breathes precious Life
Into every living thing
Over and over again,
While I am Whispering Amen,
Amen,
Amen.

Dangers of Exposure to Light at Night

Sleeping while exposed to light at night
causes a dramatic drop in blood melatonin levels,
setting the stage for growth and proliferation
of breast cancer cells.

An interesting study in the
December 1, 2005 issue of Cancer Research
provides new information that
might partly explain why this is.

This study provides evidence
that may partly explain why breast cancer
is five times more common in industrialized nations
compared to less developed countries.
It may also explain why visually challenged people
have lower rates of cancer than people
who have no problems with vision.

So my Dear Friends,
Don’t be in the dark
About this.
Well, actually,
You do need to be
In the dark!

You know what I mean.

Let us prevent
Needless suffering.
There are so many things
You can do.
And to live in deep regret
Need not be one of them.
Spend a few moments
In thoughtful research and study.
And then do
The common sense things.

And thank the Lord,
Our God,
Who gives us precious Life,
And Blesses us
In countless ways.
