There are deep wells
of Wisdom,
Eternal Springs
of Knowledge
that can nourish
your mind,
bring Peace
to you fragile Heart
and heal your
Spirit.

These vast Reservoirs
of Wisdom
reside in poetry and song
that God provides in order that
you and I
may flourish and thrive
and become passionate
about the precious Gift of Life,
share it with others
and pass it on.

                   God provides.

Love may be found
in the symbols
of communication
we hear and read
and share.
But meaning,
my Friends,
is taken TO
these symbols,
Not FROM them.
Reality
emanates from within,
not from without.
This significant understanding
harbors a fundamental
awareness:
The inspiring and beautiful
words and passages
we read and hear
can unlock
Hearts and minds
and truly reveal
what lies within.
And what may be found,
was placed there by God,
and it is truly Beautiful!

leaves

Shade them from the harshness of what lay ahead.

In every Religious and Spiritual Tradition
we find the same precept
– that life’s ultimate Truth,
its Treasure,
resides within us.

My Dear Parents,
such Treasure lies deep within
the Heart and mind of your child.
But a child on its own,
will never discover it,
never realize
the Sacred Beauty
that resides within –
Not without you.
Only you
can unlock the precious mind
and fragile Heart
of your child.
And the Key
may be found
in your Heart,
revealed in Loving words,
the gentle tone of your voice,
kind deeds
and
forgiving ways.

Great-Wall

A child wants guidance.
Craves the knowledge
that YOU care enough
to provide the structure needed
for survival.
When children internalize our guidance
they become “self-disciplined.”
And the most effective “discipline”
for your child
is always
positive,
Loving
and gentle.

Yes, a child WANTS
guidance.
Believe it or not,
when given in a Loving manner,
it says
“I LOVE YOU”
in a LOUD, unmistakable
and Eternal way.

Australian

           It says “I LOVE YOU”.

The softer the voice,
the louder
the message.

“Speak softly
and hold me
in your Heart.
And as I hear these words,
truly Loving moments
start.”
– Wm. C. Anderson

Don’t just shout NO.
Whisper,
“No, my Love,
that soft drink
will KILL you.
And you will suffer immeasurably
along the pathway to death.
It’s called
Diabetes.”

Whitehaven-Beach

Come to understand what Love really means.

Yes,
your child,
more precious than
everything else in the Universe,
will get mad at you
for pouring that sugary soft drink
down the drain,
BUT,
will live long enough
to forgive you,
and come to understand
what Love
really means.

“Do not provoke your children to anger.”
Ephesians 6:4

The greatest of the
Reservoirs of Love
and strength and knowledge
comes from
the Word of God.

“Train up a child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.”
Proverbs 22:6

Meteora-Greece

       The horizon of our being.

I am asked
from precious time to time,
“What do think my child
needs from me,
wants of me?”

My Dear Friends,
your child, literally,
wants to fly with you
across the sunrise
of each shining day,
to walk with you
hand in hand,
to hear so very many stories
you have to share,
to sing a song of Life
with you,
to laugh out loud
so hard
they cannot breathe,
to sit beside you
and enjoy the graceful beauty
of God’s sun setting
on the horizon of our being,
to be close beside you
with a campfire warming
body and Spirit alike,
to live inside
the warmth of many smiles
that shade them
from the harshness
of what lay ahead,
what is so very dark
outside.

Iceland-aurora

Healing within always comes from without.

Mom,
your precious baby,
growing or grown,
wants YOU,
not all the
the mind cluttering things,
objects to lose or lost,
the misplaced mayhem of
mind boggling and mischievous
moments lost in the nether world
of technologies bought for naught.

Within the Heart
and mind
of every child,
is an empty
space to fill,
as vast as the whole Universe,
as void
as any nothingness
you could possibly feel.

St.-Lucia

What may be found was placed there by God.

If the truth
be told,
your Heart can
be made
to never, ever hurt again.
And how is this done?
By Loving another
far, far more
than you ever Loved
yourself.
Healing within,
always comes
from without,
from another
in need.

How can your thoughts
be of you,
if they are infinitely focused
upon someone you Love,
someone other than thee.
The Human mind
can think of ONLY one
thing
at a time.
So stop thinking
about yourself,
and get some
Peace of Mind.

Antelope-Canyon

          Sidestep the illusion

And yes,
if Wisdom should,
perchance or by happenstance,
sidestep the illusion
of your ego,
Loving God
will provide a Blessed Gift
of healing from Above,
and the Dove
of Peace
will alight upon
your troubled Heart.

“Only love can break a heart. Only love can mend it again.”         – Gene Pitney

We are not here
to change one another,
to bend each others will
to our way,
to steal away the fire,
share the night
without the day,

“Love
is a Flower,

you’ve got
to let it grow.”
– John Lennon

All your child’s world
will hear
as the sound of your voice
echoes soft and clear,
is Love,
no longer held by the fear
of unknowing if your Heart
is near.

Love blossoms evermore when
the thoughts of your child
are beside you.

The greatest wellspring
of inspiration
I have ever known in song
I wish to share with you.
I play this beautiful piece
almost daily,
to remind me
of what is truly significant
in Life.
I invite you to listen with me
to the inspired thoughts
and lyrics of Randy Sparks,
performed by John Denver.
I Pray
these beautiful words
will also Bless you.

for letting
“me be me”,
and
thank you
for being you.

                                        Cancer and Milk Thistle
Encouraging studies are promoting the use of silybin as a way to alter the cell cycle of certain types of cancer. Silybin is the most potent ingredient in silymarin, the compound responsible for the health benefits of milk thistle. Although studies are ongoing, silymarin’s role is promising. Early reports show that silymarin affects cancer cells by disrupting the signals to multiply and invade healthy cells.

Silymarin may also:

Slow the growth of cancer cells in breast, cervical, and prostate cancer.
Reduce the toxic effects of chemotherapy drugs
Offer protection to the kidneys when using Cyclosporine, a drug diagnosed primarily to prevent transplant rejection. This medication is often used in the treatment of various types of cancer. (But, it may also affect cyclosporine’s effectiveness.)
Inhibit the formation of blood vessels that surround tissue in order to feed a malignant tumor, known as angiogenesis.

In addition, silymarin has been known to improve the efficiency of chemotherapy drugs such as cisplatin and doxorubicin in the fight against ovarian and breast cancer. This research is ongoing, but silymarin is beginning to garner respect from the scientific community as a potential weapon against cancer.

Since the process of extracting silymarin from milk thistle was developed in the 1980s, it has been easier to produce supplements that are more potent. Though milk thistle has not been evaluated and approved by the FDA, the most commonly recommended dosage is 200 mg to 400 mg twice per day. The herb can also be taken as a tea, but most people who take milk thistle prefer the supplement. If you prefer the tea, the dosage is 12 to 15 grams of the dried herb infused in warm water.

Check with your healthcare professional before adding milk thistle to your diet, since there is a risk of severe allergic reactions in people with an allergy to flowers such as ragweed, marigolds and artichokes. Pregnant women and children should avoid milk thistle since its effect on this population has not been confirmed as safe for this population.

pathway 2

How many times
Have hearts strayed
From the beautiful path
On which once
They would play?

So often we wander
Down alluring pathways of life,
Hearts and minds
Together,
Wanting to be
Forever in Love
With life,
Wanting to stay.

The crystal mirror
Of our memory,
With painful longing,
Invites us to return,
To never leave again
The beauty of Love
Lost along the way,
Never fully knowing
That this moment,
And the last,
Are one.

“Time present and time past
are both perhaps present
in time future
and time future
contained in time past.”
– T.S. Eliot

reflection

The crystal mirror of our memory invites us to return.

The Human Heart
Will never know
It is not still in Love.
It feels not
The time
Apart from the moment
It awakened
In Love with a dream.

Our heart can never forget,
Never truly rest,
Never
Not remember,
All the Love
That gave it Life,
Birth.

It is
Worth remembering,
Love is the Mother

Of all Life on Earth.

Love is a living, breathing thing.

To stay,
To be,
In Love
For all time,
Is not a dream,
My Friend.

For Love
Is a living, breathing thing.
Over and over again
It is reborn,
Brought back to Life,
In our memories,
In our thoughts,
Our fragile hearts,
And
In our very beautiful dreams.

Time stands still and forever is mine.

My Dear Friends,
There is a texture
To Life.
You can feel it
When you laugh out loud,
When you cry so hard
You taste the salt
Of which you are made
In your precious tears,
When you see your reflection
In the sparkle
Of someone’s eyes,
And come to know
You
Are truly alive.

Unequal Balance

      There is a texture to Life.

When someone,
Anyone,
Smiles
And lifts your Spirit off the ground,
And you
Are no longer you,
You belong to
A different moment,
And now belong
To someone
Who is not other,
But a Sister,
A Brother,
And you are together
On a beautiful
Pathway of Life.

You are one.

“What sunshine is to flowers,
smiles are to humanity.
These are but trifles, to be sure;
but scattered along life’s pathway,
the good they do is inconceivable.”

The Love that gave you Life can give it back again.

Such is Love in life
When Spirits blend,
And you and your friend
Can longer stay,
For in this one moment
Time stands still,
And forever is mine.

Love opens this door,
Shows us this way,
Lights a Lamp,
Calls us
By name.

Without tasting life,
One withers and dies,
Is deprived of the flavors
Upon which life dines.

Life, my friends,
When viewed
Through the Lens of Love,
Shows us
Love and Life
Are the same.
The joy of living
May be found
In the eyes of another,
In soothing a heart
Filled with pain,

In feeling the Sacred rain
Of grateful tears,

In the calming sounds
Of the night bird’s songs,
In the glorious Sun that God
Sets in your Heart
,
In the healing forgiveness
That greets the dawn
Of Life born again.

                               Fish to Eat & Fish to Avoid

Fish can provide an excellent low-calorie protein source without the fat and cholesterol of red meats. However, some varieties such as shark and mackerel are very high in mercury. Mercury is a known carcinogen and a pollutant of the habitats for many fish, including farmed fish, according to the Washington State Department of Health. The USDA recommends eating at least eight ounces of healthy, low-mercury fish per week.

Crab

This family of fish falls into the shellfish group and includes king, blue and snow crab. Crab is an excellent source of many nutrients including protein, vitamin B12, and vitamin C, and it has only 82 calories per three-ounce serving. Crab is readily available at grocery stores and seafood marts, but avoid the canned or artificial versions. These can have excess sodium, which is hard on the kidneys and heart.

Catfish

When enjoying catfish, choose the American kind – raised, procured and sold as an American product. Imported catfish may contain high levels of cancer-causing toxins. Broiled or grilled catfish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for heart and brain health, and selenium, which is important for cell metabolism.

Scallops

Scallops are a small mussel and safe to eat two to three times weekly. Low in toxins and high in protein, these mussels are delicious alone or on a salad. Scallops come in a variety of sizes, including the large Atlantic version and tiny bay scallops.

Salmon

Salmon is a heart-healthy food that is rich in omega-3 acids. The larger and older the fish, the more mercury it might contain. Therefore, limit farm-raised or Atlantic salmon to one serving every two months, but enjoy canned Pacific salmon two times a week, according to the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals.

Trout

Perhaps a neighbor just returned from a weekend fishing trip and has some trout to spare. Freshwater trout is best and can be enjoyed biweekly, according to the Washington State Department of Health. This fish is rich in omega-3 fats, which are good for the heart.

Tuna

Canned tuna is a popular pantry staple for good reason. It is a quick, cheap source of low-fat protein and is rich in vitamins B12 and D, calcium and iron. However, albacore tuna contains almost three times as much mercury as skipjack tuna, according to the Environmental Defense Fund. Therefore, pregnant women and young children should focus on consuming primarily skipjack, or light varieties of tuna. Furthermore, canned tuna can be high in sodium, so look for low-sodium versions if you’re watching your salt intake.

Oysters

Raw or steamed, oysters are a rich source of protein and omega-3 fats. The Washington State Department of Health states that oysters are low in mercury and can be enjoyed two to three times weekly. Those with health conditions, however, such as immunodeficiency disorders like AIDS or cancer, should avoid oyster consumption due to their potential bacteria containment.

Crayfish

About 3 inches in length, crayfish are similar to tiny lobsters that turn bright red when cooked and contain juicy white meat. Sometimes referred to as crawdads, crayfish are a healthy fish to eat, but only the American kind that is farmed mostly in Louisiana and the Mississippi.

Shrimp

Rich in iodine, shrimp is a low-fat, low-calorie shellfish that can be enjoyed weekly, according to the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals. Shrimp can be boiled, grilled, sauteed or added to a salad while still retaining the same delicious taste.

Sardines

The smaller the fish, the less mercury it contains. Older, larger fish eat the small fish and therefore absorb their mercury and toxins. Sardines, such as herring, are small fish that are low in mercury and high in essential omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin D and several B-vitamins. They are sometimes enjoyed plain on crackers or out of a can. Because many canned versions are high in sodium, consume them in moderation or look for low-sodium canned versions if you are controlling your sodium intake.

The FDA advises that pregnant women, nursing mothers, and young children to avoid eating swordfish, shark, king mackerel, and tilefish.

And for your information:
The causes of death
NOW
and
one hundred fifteen years ago.

My dear friends,
It is NOT normal to die from cancer, heart disease
or suffer from diabetes, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, etc.
These diseases only exist because of
they way we live our lives
and a lack of knowledge,

Cancer and Heart Disease
and Diabetes
have INCREASED due to
Corporate (profit) driven
pollution of the food chain.

My friends,
please study this chart from
the New England Journal of Medicine.
It is quite revealing.
And MOST important
share this knowledge with
you precious children.
They NEED to know.
Please discuss it with them.
This chart will make for GREAT
nightly reading.
A serious discussion
will enable them to have
many more nights
available to read.

Many.

May God always abide with you
as you cherish and protect
each precious child.

What Only You Can Imagine

pic for web

“Happiness is the realization
of God in the heart.”
                      – White Eagle

The story of our lives
Is the story of all life.
We are all living in a story we tell.
And every time we love someone,
What we say with our lives
B
ecomes part of another story.

And what was me,
Is now we.
And our story is one.

The story of your life
Can become so moving, so uplifting,
That you feel the world around you move
From hate to love,
From being weak to strong,
From silence to song,

The story you tell with your life
Can lift us, all of us, beyond ourselves
To shape and form
What only you can imagine
,
into a new reality,
Another person,
A new you.

God has bestowed upon you
The power to create,

Through the loving personality
That possesses your heart.

What is within
Can be transformed
Into a new dimension,

A new time,
A new place.
One in which you
Will Love to live,
And live to Love.

When the stars come out tonight,
Look up.

  Have shadows filled the day
Of someone you pulled
From the wreckage,
Of a silent reverie?
Did you place someone
Into the arms of the Angel

  You keep hidden deep within?

Life so kind,
Love so sublime,
Will discover loving memories
Seeping from the veins
Of your invisible being,
Into the empty spaces
Of the hollow hearts

All around you.
And the lonely,
And the unloved

You shall never meet again.

I pray you will see the Light
God placed deep within your heart.
Then your burdens will weightless be,
And you will find Peace tonight,
From the endlessness you feel.

  Oh, dreamer of dreams,
Arms of the Angel you are,
Ache to embrace the tempest-tossed,
Thinking all is lost,
Lost in the violence
Of a heartless sea.

Let the grandeur
Of your bountiful, beautiful Love
Blossom in the sunlight of your soul.

How happy you will be.

After all the deeply heartfelt feelings
You have helping someone in need,
There will flow a depth
Of unbelievably beautiful emotion,
Which nothing else
May ever convey to you.

Your reward shall in Heaven be,
And in the Heaven on Earth you create
In the heart of someone
You now come to love.

Easily spoken, not easy to see,
The Kingdom of Heaven,
As Jesus has said,
Is within you and me (Luke 17:23).

Open your heart,
It will be.

I pray you will find the joy in life
And the bountiful Love
That waits for you
Quietly,
Impatiently.

There is no need for temples;
no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own heart is our temple;
the philosophy is kindness.
                           ~ Dalai Lama XIV

From NaturalNews –

You may have heard about the miracle antioxidant resveratrol, found in blueberries, grapes and red wine. But did you know that these same foods also contain another phenolic compound, pterostilbene, which may help lower body fat and reduce diabetes risk? That was the finding of a study conducted by researchers from the Spanish Biomedical Research Centre in Physiopathology of Obesity and Nutrition (CIBERobn) of the Carlos III Institute of Health, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Pterostilbene is in the same chemical family as resveratrol and is found in many of the same foods, such as grapes, blueberries, cranberries and peanuts. Learn more

The Midst of an Epidemic / Indian Festival and Market

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works,
if from the head, almost nothing.
– Marc Chagall

12-9-20 SUNSET with TREE

Another beautiful sunset viewed from the Anderson School.

An epidemic has washed upon our shores. This epidemic stems from the highly polluted food chain that now exists in America. And profit driven pollution of our food results in the debilitating and deadly disease of Diabetes.

It is, however, preventable and treatable. From CommonSenseHealth.Com we find out “How to Avoid Diabetes and Reverse Diabetes Type 2”  – How do you reverse diabetes naturally? Click here to read article.

The problem is no one’s allowed to tell you that you can usually avoid diabetes and sometimes even reverse diabetes naturally.

Many studies clearly show that avoiding diabetes and actually even reversing early type 2 diabetes is possible. And learning how to avoid diabetes and reverse diabetes naturally is vitally important.

We’re clearly in the midst of a serious type 2 diabetes epidemic.

Dr. Harold Lawrence

Dr. Harold Lawrence spoke with students prior to our trip to the Texas Indian Festival on Friday.

Over 24 million Americans and 300 million people worldwide have type 2 diabetes. And the complications of diabetes are down right scary.

Blindness,

Kidney failure,

Damaged nerves,

Circulation problems,

Leg and foot amputations,

And a high heart disease risk.

Avoiding Diabetes or Reversing Diabetes in Seven Steps

What was once called adult-onset diabetes is now showing up in many more adults and an ever-growing number of teens and children.

But the great news is that learning how to avoid diabetes type 2 and even reverse diabetes is simple. But it takes strong commitment and persistence to make the lifestyle changes that reduce the risk for diabetes.

With the seven simple steps below, you can reduce your chance, and that of your child, of diabetes complications, heart disease and some cancers.

1. Make exercise a priority. Working your muscles with regular physical activity greatly improves circulation and your ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. Studies show that just taking a brisk half-hour walk every day reduces your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 30%. And adding more physical activity during the day reduces your diabetes risk even more.

2. Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight is the major cause of type 2 diabetes. It increases your risk by seven times. Obesity makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone at a healthy weight. But, if you’re overweight, losing just 7% to 10% of your current weight can cut your chance of developing diabetes in half. Healthy permanent weight loss is the best thing you can do to decrease your diabetes risk.

3. Eliminate refined carbohydrates. Sugar, sugary soft drinks, fruit drinks and fruit juice, white bread, white rice, white pasta and other refined carbohydrates cause a fast and furious rise in blood sugar. Eating these high glycemic foods greatly increases your risk of developing diabetes.

4. Focus on plant foods. A diet high in fiber foods, such as colorful vegetables, beans, fresh fruits and 100% whole grains lowers your risk of diabetes and helps keep your appetite and calories under control.

5. Choose healthy fats. The fats you eat affect your diabetes risk one way or another, so it’s important to learn bad fat good fat differences. Fats found in omega 3 fish, such as salmon and tuna, raw nuts, seeds, whole grains and olive oil help to lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Whereas trans fats do just the opposite by contributing to diabetes.

6. If you smoke, quit. Diabetes is just one of the many smoking health risks on the long list of health problems caused by tobacco use. Smokers are at least 50% more likely to develop diabetes than nonsmokers.

7. Manage blood pressure and cholesterol. Diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure all damage blood vessels. And when they team up together, they increase your risk for heart attack, stroke and other deadly conditions. But if you exercise regularly, eat for great health and manage your weight, you can lower blood pressure and cholesterol naturally.

And learn all the symptoms of diabetes type 2 and insulin resistance.

Although following these steps for avoiding diabetes type 2 and reversing diabetes naturally takes commitment, focus and persistence, type 2 diabetes and the complications of diabetes are highly preventable.

 Reverse type 1 diabetes with a RAW FOOD diet

(NaturalNews) click here for article. Is it possible to reverse type 1 diabetes (T1D, previously known as insulin-dependent diabetes or IDDM) simply by enjoying a raw food diet? According to Dr. Kirt Tyson, a naturopathic doctor who practices in Arizona, eating a diet that primarily consists of raw foods can dramatically reduce blood sugar levels in type 1 diabetics, perhaps even stopping their insulin dependency.

How one doctor stopped his insulin dependence

Dr. Tyson speaks from experience. A former self-proclaimed fast food junkie and a type 1 diabetic himself, he now believes in the amazing power of eating raw.

During an interview with Robyn Openshaw, also known as Green Smoothie Girl and author of “12 Steps to Whole Foods,” he revealed that, prior to starting a raw food diet, his blood sugar level was extremely high (diabetic ketoacidosis) at around 300 mg/dL. Anything above 240 mg/dL is cause for concern.

However, within 2-3 weeks of eating raw foods – nuts, seeds and vegetables with no dairy, meat or fruits – he checked his blood sugar again. The unbelievable result? His blood sugar level dropped to an acceptable, safe range: 76 mg/dL. Today, he says he only needs insulin if he becomes sick (which causes blood sugar levels to rise).

Raw foods: what’s best for diabetics?

The American Diabetes Association’s website lists top super foods for diabetics. Among them are nuts and seeds such as walnuts and flax, as well as vegetables – the darker and leafier, the better. These suggestions align with the raw food diet lifestyle that worked for Dr. Tyson.

Other diabetics following a raw food diet often share their food suggestions in forums. Some of their preferences include:

– Chia Seeds
– Hemp Seeds
– Almonds
– Pecans
– Fenugreek leaves
– Dandelion leaves

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 20 million people worldwide have T1D.
