The Unity of Life / Benefits of Coffee / Important Dates

“We are not passive experiencers
of the World;

we are the Creators
of the World
we experience.”

Immanuel Kant

     Objects are the shadows of thoughts.

“The Atom
now appears to be
a form of
Music.
Thus the underlying order
of the material World
displays a Mathematical order
that suggests that it is
an embodiment of
Beauty

and Intelligence.”
Donald Hatch Andrews

The deeper Science
penetrates into
the nature of Reality,
the more we find
intricate Mathematical
Harmonies.

Such insight
means that we are coming
Home
to our true place
in Nature.

The Unity and Beauty
of precious Life
is being revealed.

“With every breath
we take,
we become Host
to myriads of atoms
that once danced
within the gigantic structures
of the Great Whales,
or provided the transient
substance
of the
Tropical Rain Forests.”
E. Lester Smith

Pulitzer prize-winning writer
Marilynne Robinson
published an essay
in which
she challenged
the nature and relevance
of modern Science.
The essay argued
that quantum entanglement
raises fundamental questions about
time and space.
She went on to say
that this calls into question
the ability of Science
to explain
reality
.

“Thoughts and ideas
are more REAL
than objects.
Objects
are the shadows
of Thoughts.”
Mark Booth

The shadows of thoughts.

We have discovered
that Quantum-mechanically,
two electrons are part of
a single quantum state,
no matter how far apart they are.
They are not independent, well-separated objects.
In fact,
quantum mechanics tells us that,
until
we measure the position of either electron,
we cannot say for certain where it is located.
And
it can be
everywhere
at once.

“The Eyes
of the Lord
are
everywhere.”
– Proverbs 15:3

Yes,
objects can be in
two places
at the SAME time,
affect each other’s movements
at the OPPOSITE
ends of the Cosmos
and
interact with the
Human Mind.

“Not only is the Universe
stranger
than we imagine,
it is stranger
than we can imagine.”
Sir Arthur Eddington
English astronomer (1882 – 1944)

Reality
is appearing to be
far different than
what we thought,
and exactly
what we have
felt
Love
expressed in the
Music
that is our being.

The Music or Harmony
of the Spheres
is an ancient Philosophical concept
that looks at the movements of Celestial bodies
such as the Sun and Moon and Planets
as a form of Music.
It is not thought to be literally audible,
but Harmonic, Mathematical and Religious
in its concept.
Scientific exploration has determined
some orbital motions
can be described
as orbital
Resonance.

“With you Eternally mine,
In Love there is
no measure of Time

We planned it all at the start
That you and I
live in each other’s Heart.

We may be oceans away.
You feel my love,
I hear what you say.”
– Robin Gibb, Barry Gibb

We are
ONE
with everything
and everyone
on Earth.
And the Beauty
of this Truth
lies beyond
our comprehension.

“We
don’t know
a millionth of one percent
about anything.”
Thomas Edison

                               My Friends,
as we reflect
upon the humbling thoughts
of Life
and Living,
we paint our own Portraits
from a palette
of lighter and darker
shades of gray,
and look with eyes
at shadows
of the days gone by,
for which we
often grieve.

“I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly.
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay,
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything
is never as it seems.

–  Adam Young

My,
how our people have suffered
for their sanity,
never knowing
Colors
change their hues,
and weathered faces
lined with pain
can be soothed
by our Artist’s
Loving Hand.

Colors change their hues.

The dark, flat land
upon which we often stride,
can be ablaze
in morning’s eye,
and abide

with Flowers flaming
brightly

and clouds swirling
lightly.

Yes,
our World

was created to be
Beautiful for
YOU.

    Flowers flaming brightly.

Let God
hold you in His Embrace,
and fall
in Love with Life
again.

“God
is more me
than I am
myself.”
St. Augustine

Heaven
is in the moment,
the precious moment,
when you
become real,
and understand
the Love
that is YOU,
and that, My Friend,
is all
you really need
to know.

Goodnight.

        How our people have suffered.

“There’s nothing you can do
that can’t be done,

Nothing you can sing
that can’t be sung,

Nothing you can say
but you can learn how to play
the game.

It’s easy.

Nothing you can make
that can’t be made,

No one you can save
that can’t be saved,

Nothing you can do
but you can learn how to be,
YOU
in time.

It’s easy.

All
you need is
LOVE.
Paul Mccartney, John Lennon

so that we might have Roses
in December.”

Why is Coffee Good For You?
Here Are 7 Reasons
By Kris Gunnars, BSc
To read full article click here

In recent years and decades,
scientists have studied the effects of coffee
on various aspects of health
and their results have been nothing short of amazing.
Here are 7 reasons why coffee
may actually be one of the
healthiest
beverages on the planet.

1. Coffee Can Make You Smarter

The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which is a stimulant and the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world. Caffeine’s primary mechanism in the brain is blocking the effects of an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine.
By blocking the inhibitory effects of Adenosine,
caffeine actually increases neuronal firing in the brain
and the release of other neurotransmitters
like dopamine and norepinephrine.

Many controlled trials have examined
the effects of caffeine on the brain,
demonstrating that caffeine can improve mood, reaction time,
memory, vigilance and general cognitive function.

2. Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat
and Improves Physical Performance

There’s a good reason why you will find caffeine
in most commercial fat burning supplements.

Caffeine raises metabolism
and increases the oxidation of fatty acids.

3. Coffee May Drastically Lower
Your Risk of Type II Diabetes

Type II diabetes is a lifestyle-related disease
that has reached epidemic proportions,
having increased 10-fold in a few decades
and now afflicting about 300 million people.

In observational studies,
coffee has been repeatedly associated with a
lower risk of diabetes.
The reduction in risk ranges from 23%
all the way up to 67%.

A massive review article looked at 18 studies
with a total of 457,922 participants.
Each additional cup of coffee per day
lowered the risk of diabetes by 7%.
The more coffee people drank,
the lower their risk.

4. Coffee May Lower Your Risk
of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Not only can coffee make you smarter in the short term,
it may also protect your brain in old age.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common
neurodegenerative disorder in the world
and a leading cause of dementia.

In prospective studies,
coffee drinkers have up to a
60% lower risk
of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Parkinson’s
is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder,
characterized by death of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain.
Coffee may lower the risk of Parkinson’s by 32-60%.

5. Coffee May be Extremely Good
For Your Liver

The liver is a remarkable organ
that carries out hundreds of vital functions in the body.

It is very vulnerable to modern insults
such as excess consumption of alcohol and fructose.
Cirrhosis is the end stage of liver damage
caused by diseases like alcoholism and hepatitis,
where liver tissue has been largely replaced by scar tissue.

Multiple studies have shown
that coffee can lower the risk of cirrhosis
by as much as 80%,
the strongest effect for those
who drank 4 or more cups per day.

Coffee may also lower the risk of
liver cancer
by around 40%.

6. Coffee May Decrease
Your Risk of Dying

In two very large prospective epidemiological studies,
drinking coffee was associated with
a lower risk of death by all causes.

This effect is particularly profound in type II diabetics,
one study showing that coffee drinkers
had a 30% lower risk of death during a 20 year period.

7. Coffee is Loaded
With Nutrients and Antioxidants

Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals.

ONE cup of coffee contains:

6% of the RDA for Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5).
11% of the RDA for Riboflavin (Vitamin B2).
2% of the RDA for Niacin (B3) and Thiamine (B1).
3% of the RDA for Potassium and Manganese.

May not seem like much,
but if you drink several cups of coffee per day
then this quickly adds up.

But this isn’t all.
Coffee also contains a massive amount of
antioxidants.

In fact,
coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants
in the western diet,
outranking both fruits and vegetables combined.

Even though coffee in moderate amounts is good for you,
drinking way too much of it can still be harmful.

To make sure to preserve the health benefits,
don’t put sugar
or anything nasty in your coffee!
If it tends to affect your sleep,
then don’t drink it after 2 p.m.

If anything, coffee may literally be
the healthiest beverage
on the planet.

And so, My Friends,
instead of allowing your children
to drink deadly and addictive soft drinks,
why not introduce them to something healthy?
Yes,
like coffee.

Please allow me to share some of the Latest Cancer Research in a Release By A. J. Morgan  (2-24-2013)

Did You Know?

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AN ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY

Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells, because they have not reached a detectable size.

Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

Many gifts in life, like this magnificent sunset, are free!

Many gifts in life, like this magnificent sunset, are free! Take the time to enjoy them, reduce stress and live longer.

When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. To read the entire research release article from the source, click here.

a. SUGAR is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame (just read the label) and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. A better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b.MILK causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soymilk, cancer cells will starve.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic. It is best to eat fish and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells drink fresh vegetable juice and eat raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day.

Wisdom of the Ages

Wisdom of the Ages

e. Avoid caffeine. Green tea is a great alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Drink Water. It is best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires many digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

Some supplements build up the immune system:

        IP6 (Inositol Hexaphosphate), according to the American Cancer Society, is a chemical found in beans, brown rice, corn, sesame seeds, wheat bran, and other high-fiber foods. Learn how the B vitamin inositol and its derivative IP6 prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis; protect against radiation; lower cholesterol and boosts immunity at ip-6.net.

Pioneering experiments done in Professor A. M. Shamsuddin’s laboratory at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, have shown that not only IP6 extremely safe, but that it and its parent molecule Inositol have anti-cancer and immune-boosting function. Dr. Shamsuddin and his associates’ findings have been validated and expanded by other scientists around the world discovering many more health benefits of IP6 & Inositol.

Excess iron in the body can cause all sorts of problems such as cancer & degenerative brain diseases. IP6 Inositol is unique as it will only remove excess iron & not iron from within your blood cells that is protected by hemoglobin. IP6 will also remove excess calcium & other metallic minerals that our bodies have accumulated down through the years.

Also recommended are Antioxidants – a group of several organic substances, including selenium, vitamins C, E, and A, and a group known as carotenoids. Antioxidants are abundant in fruits, vegetables, grain, and coffee (to avoid caffeine, purchase coffee without caffeine). Coffee, even caffeine free coffee, has 60 antioxidants. Yes, that steaming cup of java is also the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Scranton. Steve Connor, Science Editor, has stated that coffee might soon be considered a health drink, following a study showing it is a surprisingly rich source of anti-cancer agents. (Excuse me, while I pour another cup.)

Antioxidants are compounds in foods that neutralize chemicals called free radicals (unstable molecules), produced by oxidation in the human body. These chemicals have been linked to diseases such as heart and liver disease and cancer.

Oxidant chemicals called free radicals are produced during normal cell respiration. They can also occur when phagocytes, the cells that fight infections, destroy cells infected with bacteria or viruses, with bursts of nitric oxide, superoxide, and hypochlorite; when fatty acids are digested; and when certain enzymes are activated to fight toxins.

Free radicals damage the DNA that makes up our genes, those parts of the cell that control its reproduction. Lesions in DNA give rise to mutations when the cell divides, and these mutations can lead to tumors. (Other causes of DNA lesions and cell mutations include radiation from the sun, exposure to chemicals and the worst of these is tobacco smoke).

Also recommended are vitamins, minerals and EFAs – Essential Fatty Acids are essential because the human body cannot manufacture them but needs them for many important functions to enable the body’s own cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements, like vitamin E, are known to cause apoptosis – programmed cell death – which is the body’s natural method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body
into a stressful and acidic environment.
Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.
Learn to relax and enjoy life.

Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

My friends, every time you say NO to your child when they want something unhealthy to eat or drink, you say NO to pain and suffering and an incomprehensibly miserable death. Our food chain is so polluted, that it is now almost impossible to eat a healthy meal, especially if you eat out.

Folks, if we are to protect our children we MUST become informed. And we MUST become as tough as nails. The next time you see your beloved child with a toxic so-called soft drink in his or her hands, quickly remove it from their hands, pour it down the drain and give him or her a big hug. Tell that beautiful child of yours that you truly love them and let them know what is in that toxic, cancer causing, diabetes inducing mix of chemicals. Corporations have paid a fortune to find out what they can legally concoct to get your child addicted. And trust me, none of the board members will attend the funeral!

Better yet, visit with your children in-tow, the Children’s Hospital. Volunteer to help and, while you are there performing a truly valued and appreciated service, talk to the children who are patients and visit with their parents. Do this WITH your children present. The impact of seeing the results of nutritional deficiencies and exposure to carcinogens will last a lifetime. No, you will never have to say another word! Truly effective teaching does not involve speaking and preaching. It does require thoughtful and meaningful exposure to the consequences of poor decision making.

There are a very (and I mean, very) FEW restaurants that care about you and your health. May I recommend The Spiral Diners (817.3.EatVeg) (817-332-8834). They are vegan restaurants located in Near Southside Fort Worth, with a second location in Dallas. The Fort Worth location is currently the city’s only vegan restaurant  (visit: spiraldiner.com). The owners of this precious resource have very graciously and knowledgeably presented lessons to our students in the past.

I also highly recommend Greenwood’s Restaurant, located at the end of University Drive, 3522 Bluebonnet Circle, Fort Worth (817.921.6777).  Take the time to get to know Peter & Vlatka Gruenewald and let them know you want a healthy meal. Cooking is a passion to Chef Peter, who began his cooking apprenticeship in 1972 in Offenbach, Germany, culminating in his “Meisterschaft” (master craftsman) chef’s diploma in Frankfurt in 1988.

We have known Peter and Vlatka for many years and I can assure you that cooking truly is a lifetime passion for them, which is why every dish and every ingredient at Greenwood’s is handpicked and made fresh daily. And try Peter’s Hand-Crafted Bread with100% Organic Ingredients!

Most importantly, this charming couple will care about you. Talk to them and let them know you are concerned about your health. They will listen and you will be truly delighted with your meal. This restaurant is one of the most valuable resources you will discover in the Fort Worth area.

Please remember, that every dollar you spend is like casting a vote. When you purchase something toxic, you provide the funding for uncaring corporations to continue their abuse and grow financially at our expense. The dollar you possess is a very powerful weapon in the arsenal of life. Please, for the sake of you and your child, spend it wisely or keep in your pocket!

SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION SELECTED
BY STUDENTS

Coinciding with the momentous 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, which has been estimated as 26th April 1564, our very own Anderson School Shakespeare Players have voted to perform “As You Like It” at the end of next April.

Students, under the guidance of noted actor and director, George Rodriguez, reviewed other plays including Henry VI, Part Three and The Merry Wives of Windsor. Following vigorous campaigning by Natalie and her counterparts, “As You Like It” won hands down by placing hands up.

Director George Rodriguez assists scholars in selecting Shakespeare play.
