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
E

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 Nature of God’s Love / Hon. Melvin Simons Remembered / Friday: Shakespeare Rehearsal at School

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

a_093

                  Love is the fire.

I have learned with deep sadness
of the passing of the
Hon. Judge Melvin Simons
who graciously visited the Anderson Private School
to share his memories of service in World War II.
It was very difficult for him to recount the horrors of war.
But he did, and through the tears, for the sake of our children.
They needed to know
Of the sacrifices made by so many
so that they may be free from tyranny.
Our students also visited him in Court
and presented him with words of gratitude
and flowers and hugs.
He was deeply moved.

Melvin

Hon. Melvin Simons

His messages of deep compassion
and Faith in the Lord
were shared in a truly Loving manner
with our students and staff.
We could never thank him enough for his
Honorable service to our Nation.
His sacrifices were beyond description.
His Love for everyone was deep and abiding.
No one has done more for our precious freedom
and for the citizens of the United States of America
than Melvin Simons.
It was an Honor and a privilege to know him.

rose

Thank you, Lord, for the precious life of Melvin Simons.

I Pray to our Father in Heaven Above
to Embrace the Beautiful Spirit of this
Noble and courageous man.

Today we are free because of
many, many countless, selfless acts
of bravery on battlefields across the Pacific
and in other theaters of war.
Let us thank and honor
our Veterans.

Simons hug

Mary Alice gives Judge Simons a big hug.

No finer man have I ever known
than Melvin Simons.

We Loved Melvin and deeply admired him.
Please join me in Praying
for the Beautiful Spirit
of this Loving man.
Melvin was willing
to fight and suffer and die
for you
and me.

“Greater love
hath no man than this,

that a man lay down his life
for his friends.”

– John 15:13 

Melvin 2

Will Fox presents Judge Simons with a bouquet picked from our own field of Wild Flowers.

He was a man who truly suffered
throughout his life
as a result of the strong emotional
and physical trauma of battle.

Melvin enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1943
where he served three years in combat
as an expert machine gunner
in the hard-fought battle for Peleliu Island in 1944
ending after 73 days of brutal fighting.
In total, the taking of Peleliu
cost nearly 10,000 American lives.

judge

Judge Simons was given a Certificate of Appreciation. Dr. Nelson Eichman (right) joined us in honoring Judge Simons.

Melvin Simons
also fought on Okinawa in 1945,
a battle that lasted 82 days.
More than 12,000 Americans
were killed or missing in action
– the highest number lost in a single battle
in the Pacific war.

simons

Judge Simons informed our students that Freedom is never Free. We have paid a higher price for our Freedom than for anything else on this Earth.

Thank you,
My Dear Lord,
For the precious life of
Melvin Simons.

What a truly
wonderful Gift.

THANK  YOU.

We are different in so very many ways.

My Dear Friends,
Redemption releases us
from the horrible bondage of sin,
and shows us an unbelievably beautiful
new life.

Our transgressions
are ultimately against
ourselves.

And those who also suffer
are our neighbors,
the fellow members
of our family of Man,
those we could have Loved
but failed to Love,
so unknowing, so unaware
that the frail, fragile
design of being only human,
can find us cast upon the shores
of a vast and wild land of temptation
and vile opportunity,
against which human power,
without the help of God,
can become helpless.

butterfly

Found at the Anderson School. You too can enjoy the bounty of God’s Love in the beauty He provides – but ONLY without pesticides!

In the Loving Word
of our Precious Lord,
Redemption refers both
to deliverance from sin
and freedom from the captivity
in which we find ourselves.
There is no greater bondage
than captivity
by an overpowering force
that we really know
very little about.

light

Redemption shows us an unbelievably beautiful new life.

You are, My Friend,
A person of Infinite Beauty,
possessing Infinite Worth,
created by One
with Infinite Love
for you.

Yes,
we are different
in so very many ways.
But,
we have the same Hearts.
And as long as we Love,
we are one.

One.

We are all
of the same Breath,
the same that God breathed into us
and gave us life.

“The LORD God formed man
from the dust of the ground
and breathed into his nostrils
the breath of life,

and man became a living being”
– Genesis 2:7

Love,
my Precious Friends,

is the great Commandment.
Love should be at the very center
of everything we do.

        A Call from Far Beyond.

In the tranquility
of a misty eyed morning,
when the moon has finally
gone to bed,
in the whisper
of the wind
pressing softly
against the awareness
of the dream I’m living in,
I can be surely waking
to a Call
from far beyond.

When the birds are,
In their joyful hearts
singing,
let us rejoice.
Spring has found
a reason for being.
And the joy
you find in sharing
all the Love hidden
in your precious Heart,
can become your reason
for living.

hummingbird-hovering

            In their joyful heart.

From Heaven Above,
the Signs are spread like a blanket
across the beautiful Earth
upon which we daily trod.

The Nature of God’s Love
has never faded away,
never strayed.
It is always by your side,
on the ground beneath your feet,
in the Firmament
of the Vault of Heaven above,
and in the flowers
and in the trees,
and the lonely eyes
of those in need.

amopole

Spread like a blanket across the beautiful Earth.

And we,
enveloped by such Beauty,
such Love,
may finally come to know
within our faintly beating Hearts,
there is time enough
To be
In Love with Life.

This moment
is all you need
to feel the Love inside,
to surely know,
to at last see,
the greatest Gift of all
is really you.
You,
Child of God,
are the most beautiful Blessing
that shall ever be.

And you
are filled with Grace.

To say thank you
is really all God wants,
all He needs.

images.duckduckgo.com

God’s Love has never faded away.

My Friends,
what your child wants
you knew before this day:
to stay a little bit closer,
linger longer than
you need to be.
Hear what your child
has to say,
so he can dream
the night away.
To see your child dance again,
and truly play
in Life’s very brief game,
take him
by the hand,
show him the way.

And when your pride
has ceased its gleaming,
and hate
is past its prime,
Love
will find its meaning
and tomorrow
and forever
Can be entwined.

Eternity,
has always been,
always
will be,
by the Grace of Almighty God,
your destiny
as the Beautiful Flower
of your Being
blossoms into Worlds
far beyond belief.

Goodnight.

Rose

“Love is the only bow of life’s dark cloud.
It is the Morning and Evening Star.
It shines upon the cradle of the babe,
and sheds its radiance upon the quiet tomb.
It is the Mother of Art,
inspirer of poet, patriot, and philosopher.
It is the air and light of every heart,
builder of every home,
kinder of every fire on every hearth.
It was the first dream of immortality.
It fills the world with melody.
Love is the magician,
the enchanter that changes worthless things to joy,
and makes right royal kings of common clay.”
– Robert Green Ingersol
