The Dangerous Illusions We Perceive / The Longevity Diet / Sept. 4: Classes Resume

“It is because our own Human existence
is so dependent on the help of others
that our need for Love
lies at the very foundation
of our existence.”

Dalai Lama

                              Accept the Love of God.

Things
are rarely
as they appear
to be.

And
what is hidden,
what is missing,
cannot be focused upon
by the
Human mind.

We often
doubt
what we cannot see,
when up is down,
what is
may not be.

As we journey
through the multiplicity
of Life’s illusions,
our sense of reality
can become distorted.
Some moments
can become mirrored in madness.
Yes,
each year over one million
very precious Souls
are pushed
completely over the brink of sanity.
(click here and look deeply into the eyes of reality)

The illusions
packed into Life
are fomented by
perception and motion,
proximity,
and a myriad of other
dimensions of improbability.

This
has led some to conclude that,
“Life, itself,
may be an
llusion.”

If
the Universe doesn’t exist
when we stop looking at it,
then it is
hung only on the walls
of our perceived
awareness.

From our friends at dailymail.com:
A famous theory in quantum mechanics
argues that a particle’s past behavior
changes
based on what we see.

Now,
scientists have performed a new experiment
proving this theory to be true
on the scale of atoms.

‘It proves that measurement is
everything.
At the quantum level,
reality does not exist

if you are not looking at it,’
said Associate Professor Andrew Truscott.

Despite the apparent weirdness,
the results confirm the validity of
quantum theory.

Quantum theory governs the World of the very small,
and has enabled the development of many technologies
such as LEDs, lasers and computer chips.

But,
SOMETHING
animates all conscious
Beings.
No.
It is not
us.
That is another
very dangerous
ILLUSION.

It is LOVE!

The Love we seek
is reflect in Time.
If we open our eyes
to the illusions
of Life in living,
we may close them again,
and simply Love
in remembering.

L
O
V

Looking back,
we may forward see.
God’s Love
was always now,
and will forever be,
the Ever Ebbing Tide
of a deepening, endless Sea.

In each moment
the Love of God
will always be,
here and now,
the Mirror
of each moment to be.
For His Love
is Love,
Infinity.

                 The Love we seek is reflect in Time.

Our mentality is
very fragile and malleable,
much like
the reality
we think we see,
when we take the time
to look.

But,
the illusions we perceive
and desperately try
to understand,
can shatter the Lives
of our very fragile
Children
and ourselves.

As they and we
strive toward pleasing
so many others,
we can come to see
perfection
as the ultimate goal
of Life and living.

           Is that the Moon or ME?

The total focus
is then upon
what is now
“ME”.
And that
is a very dangerous
place to be.
.
My Dear Friends,
everything
but
Love

is illusory.
And there is MUCH evidence
in quantum mechanics
and
the Holy Bible:

All that is in the World
(the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes
and the arrogance produced by
material possessions)

is not from the Father,
but is from the world.”
1 John 2:16
.
Ultimate Reality
is God,
and God is not just the essence of
Love,
HE  IS  LOVE.


“God is Love;
and he that dwelleth in love

dwelleth in God,
and God in him”.
1 John 4:16

.

YOU, too, are beautiful beyond Belief.

If you desire
to guide your precious
Child
toward sanity,
toward TRUTH,
and Life
and JOY,
Love your Child,
simply Love,
and ONLY Love.
.
Yes,
you may come to see
everything else in Life
and on Earth
is an illusion.
.
Those who give up
on Life
have felt abandoned
by the one reality
of Love.
.
If your child
looks into your eyes
and does not see
Love,
no,
it does not
exist.
.
Reality does not exist
if you are not looking at it.
.
EVERYTHING
is in
the Eye and Mind
of the Beholder.

.

Yes,
our need for Love
lies at the very foundation
of our existence.
.
My Precious Friends,
the JOY
you find in sharing
all the Love hidden
in your precious Heart,
can become their reason
for living.
.
The great Truths
are simple.

.
Ultimately,
the further we move
away from God
(Love)
the more endangered
WE
and our Children
become.
.
Let us keep Life
simple.
.
Accept
the Love of God.
And let it flow
through YOU
to everyone you meet.
.
Goodnight.
.

“Love is the fire
that warms our lives
with unparalleled Joy
and Divine Hope.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“God Is Love.”
John affirms that
“God is Love”
( 1 John 4:8 ).
God does not merely Love;
He Is Love.
Everything that God does
flows from his Love.

                        Everything.

“The sun comes up,
it’s a new day dawning.
It’s time to sing
Your song again
Whatever may pass,
and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
when the evening comes.”

Matt Redman – Ten Thousand Reasons

          Eating what nature intended.

From our Friends at:
eco-friendly-africa-travel.com/longevity-diet.html

The longevity diet
is simply eating what nature intended us to,
thus ensuring a healthier and longer life.

Animals in the wild, eating their natural diet, live an average of ten times the number of years it takes them to reach maturity (Chimpanzee’s reach maturity by the time they’re five, and live to about fifty years, for instance).

Meanwhile, most humans’ lifespan is barely five times the number of years it takes to reach maturity.

The Longevity Diet: How long should we be living?

Steve Charter, in Eat More Raw: A guide for health and sustainability, cites Dr Joel Wallach, who emphasises the scientifically accepted view that the genetic potential for longevity in humans suggests we should live to around 120 to 140 years old.

Dr Wallach lists a few more cases to further support this, including Russian Georgians who commonly live to 120 and the Armenians and Ebkanians, where living to 140 is not uncommon.

He cites one Armenian who, from his military records, is thought to have lived to 167 years old, and the Titicaca Indians of south-east Peru who lived to between 120-140 years old. There’s also the case of the Niger chief who died at 126 with all his teeth, and a Syrian in the Guinness Book of Records who fathered 9 children after 80 and went on to live to 133.

Put into context, the average age for Americans was 75.5 years old in 1994. For doctors it was 58. Dr Wallach suggest that these figures suggest that there is great value in treating yourself (through nutritional and lifestyle changes), rather than putting your health in the hands of doctors.

If you think about it logically, the reason there’s such a difference in our lifespan (compared to chimpanzees or those who manage to live to a ripe old age) is that we are not eating our natural diet.

In this article I’ll discuss some of the longest-living tribes and what the commonalities are in terms of their diet and lifestyle, what I term the longevity diet.

“Bad men live that they may eat and drink,
whereas good men eat and drink
that they may live.”

Socrates

                The longevity diet: Diet of the longest-living cultures

John Robbins, in Healthy at 100: The Scientifically Proven Secrets of the World’s Healthiest and Longest-Lived Peoples, describes the lifestyles and dietary patterns of the long-lived cultures of the Abkhasia of Southern Russia, the Vicalbamba Indians of the Ecuadorian Andes and the Hunza of North Pakistan.

He found that the percentage of calories they obtained daily was between 69-73% carbohydrates, 15-18% from fat and 10-13% from protein.

Overall daily calories ranged between 1,700 -1,800, while the Abkhasia ate 90% plant foods and the Vilcabamba and Hunza ate 99% plant foods.

All three ate low amounts of salt, zero sugar or processed food, and had no incidence of obesity and other common diseases.

He also discussed the Okinawa, who, though eating a more animal-based diet, had a similar lifestyle.

I highly encourage you to read this book, or if you need a taste of what it’s about, read this review of Healthy at 100, which includes a preview of the fascinating first chapter.

The longevity diet includes some common denominators. These are:

  • Diet including whole mostly vegan, organic food with minimal animal products and fat.
  • Vitamin D and exercise
  • Strong community values
  • Spirituality and a sense of purpose

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.

~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990

Longevity Diet lesson 1: Whole, organic fresh food

Longevity Diet lesson 2: Vitamin D and exercise

Longevity Diet lesson 3: Strong community values

The Longevity Diet lesson 4: Spirituality and a sense of purpose

The Beauty Of God’s Recreation / TWO Cans of Sugary Drinks a Day = heart attack, diabetes and stroke / Trip: Half Price Books and Movie – The Martian

rose-flower

God in His Wisdom Provides.

We struggle
To rebuild ourselves each day,
Some days, minute by minute.
And there are years
Of not knowing,

Of not feeling,
That so very many hearts
Like yours and mine,
Have been broken
By what someone has done,

And can’t undo.

flower

   Hold out your arms.

My Dear Friends,
Never feel that you are
Alone.
Given time,
Everyone suffers.
Look around,
And you will know.
But, we need to know
More
To survive and thrive.
And a good place to start
Is to recognize that

“Your joy
is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well
from which your laughter rises
was oftentimes filled
with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow
carves into your being,

the more joy you can contain.”
– Kahlil Gibran

  Kahlil Gibran

To empty the vessel
Of your precious being
Of all the suffering and pain,
To prepare your Life
To begin again,
Forgive
Those who transgress
Against you.

Forgiveness
Furrows deep into
The Landscape of Being,
To bury what needs
Never to be thought of
Again,
Leading to remarkable discover,
That we are standing alone,
No longer holding those who
Who harmed us by the hand.

For we drop the hand
Of the one we hold
In mindful madness,
Til’ its meaning has lost
All pretense of being.

flowers 2

Formed by God into the Flower Of Your Precious Being.

To forgive
Finds us no longer
In the wake of
Dark and deepening shadows
Drifting across the landscape
Of precious Life.
It lifts the veil of awareness,
Like nothing ever happened.
Nothing.

Those who inflict pain,
As Jesus said,
“Do not know
What they do.”

They have not been Blessed
To understand
What it feels like

To find the Comfort,
The Kindness,

The Deep and Abiding Compassion
Found in Hearts
Touched by the Grace of God.

lisianthus-flowers

Embrace the Life He gives.  It is His Love.

We can never find healing
Looking back.
Today
Is the doorway
To tomorrow,
And tomorrow is yesterday
Lived over and over again,
Or transformed
Into today’s Dream
Forever.

The building blocks,
To restore what God
Has made in you

Are all around.
They come in many Blessed shapes,
And very many forms.
They are what you may least expect,
And more beautiful and durable
Than what we have found
In Life.

God in His Wisdom
Provides.
He always has,
Always will.
But often we fail to look
Through the lens
Of our hearts.

The mortar He will use
To cement the pieces
Of us that are left,

“Is the Peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
and will guard
your hearts and your minds”.

(Philippians 4:7)

sunset over water

. . . like a beautiful sunrise that stays in our Hearts

The building blocks
He gives
Are shaped like smiles,
Song,
Prayer,
Flowers,

Like a beautiful sunrise
That stays in our Hearts
All day long.

sunset with tree

The building blocks are all around.

Like embraces
Warm and long,
And painted with laughter,
To last far longer
Perhaps, ever after.

From such moments
On cloudy days,

 We can find tears
Of Joy
Pouring down
Like the falling rain.

And the Capstone
Of the all the beauty,
Of the Likeness
Of our Hearts Renewed,
Is a Kiss,
Shaped by God
Into the Flower
Of Your Precious Being.

Restore what God has made in you.

Hold out your arms,
Embrace the Life
He gives.
It is His Love,
Formed
Into the Beauty
Of God’s Recreation
Of a new day,

A new You.

“Mine is the Sunlight,
Mine is the Morning,
Sweet the rain’s new fall
Sunlit from Heaven.
Like the first dew fall
On the first grass,
Like God’s recreation
Of the new day,”
– by Eleanor Farjeon

. . . embraces warm and long, and painted with laughter.

Touch another Heart
With warmth,
Lift someone’s Spirit from the soil
In which they are found,

From the depths of deep despair.
The hand you extend
To help another,
Is,
In Truth,

Love is a beautiful Flower,
And you
Its only Seed.

The building blocks are shaped like Flowers.

What you receive,
Is what you give.
And what you give
Can be beyond Belief,
And discovered
Only if you Believe.

The Immeasurable
LOVE of God
Is Infinite and Beautiful,
And far, far
Beyond our comprehension.

And so is your Love,
And so are You!

Love is a beautiful Flower, and you its only Seed.

Just TWO cans
of sugary fizzy drinks a day
significantly increases the risk
heart attack,
diabetes and stroke.
Harvard University marks
the most comprehensive study
on sugary drinks to date:

Found 1 or 2 servings a day
linked to 26% greater risk of type 2 diabetes

35% greater risk of heart attack or heart disease
and 16% risk of stroke

Experts have called for urgent action
to reduce consumption of the drinks

My friends,
please keep pouring those
TOXIC soft drinks
down the drain.
Love your children enough
and BE STRONG enough
to let them live
long and happy lives.
There are healthy alternatives:
Fruit juices,
Unsweetened Tea,
Coffee (both have 60 antioxidants),
or how about
good old fashioned
WATER.
Now, I drink to that!

Sugar
is the favorite food
of CANCER!!!

Folks,
Your tears can easily
water the flowers
you place upon the
grave
of your precious child.

Come on!
Wake up!

LOVE = Strength
