Our Human Heart Is Very Fragile / What Humanity? / Lowest Radiation Cell Phones / Magnesium: The cure to all disease?

“So we fix our eyes
not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen,
since what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is
Eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:18

                            He Lights up the dark.

God
speaks
when He says,
nothing
at all.

Without
saying a thing,
He
Lights up the
dark,
Inflames the Heart
with but a
spark.

Often speaking so
loud
we cannot hear
Him,
for our Blessings
are in a crowd,
and with so many there,
they are
deafeningly loud.

                              He says nothing at all.

The air we
breathe,
the Heart
that beats within,
the time
we have to spend,
and all the Love
that greets
each passing moment,
we
cannot abrogate
or rescind.

“I’ve lost Loved ones in my Life
who never knew
how much I Loved them.

Now,
I live with the regret

that my true feelings for them
never were revealed.”
– Garth Brooks & Kent Blazy

Tomorrow
never comes.
It is already
here,
there,
and everywhere.
The future
is but today,
left undone.

“The dividing line between
past, present, and future
is an Illusion“.
Albert Einstein

My Dear Friends,
it’s warmer
in the Heart
next door.

If you want
to keep your Life,
give it away.

The Cathedral
of the Heart
we cannot comprehend.
But,
you can look for it
in your
Sacred Belief.

“I hope you never
lose your sense of Wonder.

You get your fill to eat,
but always keep that hunger.

May you never take one single breath
for granted.

God forbid Love ever leave you
empty-handed.

I hope you still feel small
when you stand beside the Ocean.

Whenever one door closes,
I hope one more opens.

Promise me that you’ll
give Faith
a fighting chance.

And when you get the choice
to sit it out or dance,

I hope you dance.”

When
you live in fear,
fate furrows
a fatal brow.

“Fear is a hollow darkness
in the future,
that reaches back through time
to rob our Joy now
by belittling the Sovereign Goodness
of God.”
Jonathan Parnell (13 Reasons Not to be Afraid)
pastor of Cities Church Minneapolis–St. Paul

 Man cannot harm us
beyond God’s Gracious Will
for us.
Psalm 118:6; Psalm 56:11

.
Fear not.
God Loves
YOU.

Goodnight.

“I believe there are Angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere Up Above.
They come to you and me
in our darkest hours

to show us how to live,
to teach us how to give,

To guide us
with the Light of Love.

When Life held troubled times
and had me down on my knees,

there’s always been someone there
to come along and comfort me.

A kind word from a stranger, to lend a helping hand,
A phone call from a friend,
just to say
I understand.

And ain’t it kind of funny
at the dark end of the road,

that someone lights the way
with just a single
Ray
of Hope
.”

                   The Light of Love.

 Human Heart Is Very Fragile
– by Aftab Alam

What
Humanity?

It’s the Angelic clad.
Slowly we are removing it,
to be glad.
In the green forest I’ve seen the white,
Darkening days
and nights so bright.

What Peace?

‘Tis for Love and Charity,
Resides within, away from the vanity
That kills poverty and builds Humanity.
Come; adore Peace
to cure its infirmity?

Peace is neither sulky nor bulky,
but agile.
Human Heart that we have
is very
fragile.

                           Very fragile.

Magnesium: The cure to all disease?

read more

Some consumers take products for which there is no medical indication at all – it’s intended as “primary prevention” of a medical condition they believe they can avoid through supplement use. Afraid of macular degeneration? Take lutein. Or worried about Alzheimer’s? Grab some ginkgo biloba. No matter your anxiety, there’s a supplement marketed for you.

One supplement with enduring popularity is magnesium.  It cures cancer. And depression. Throw away your inhalers, because it cures asthma too. Read enough online, and you’ll conclude that magnesium is quite possibly the prevention and the cure to all disease.

Does magnesium have medicinal effects when consumed?

In medical and pharmacy practice, it has several demonstrated uses – the most well known are probably as an antacid or laxative. Good old milk of magnesia (MOM) works because magnesium is partially absorbed – enough stays in the bowel, drawing water into the colon and softening and dislodging anything below.  Injectable magnesium, sold as a prescription drug,  allows large doses to be given quickly, and is used for the treatment of preeclampsia (pregnancy-induced hypertension) and eclampsia (the resulting seizures) – it’s well tolerated and better than other drugs.  Magnesium also seems to be effective for treating some forms of arrhythmia, as well as asthma exacerbations. Some types of migrane and cluster headaches also seem to respond to magnesium supplements.

Magnesium really is everywhere in the body – it’s the 4th most abundant mineral. It’s involved in hundreds of different biochemical reactions and enzyme systems, supporting processes like protein synthesis, cell growth, and energy production. It has roles in nerve function, muscle control, and blood pressure. Even blood sugar regulation depends on magnesium.

Boosting magnesium intake through dietary changes.

Helpfully, foods rich in magnesium are already recommended in diets associated with positive health outcomes: Green vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds are all good sources of magnesium.

Brain cancer incidence, cellphone use, and trends data

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety
by Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D.

Hardell and Carlberg (2015) reported that brain tumor rates have been increasing in Sweden based upon the Swedish National Inpatient Registry data.  Hardell and Carlberg (2017) reported that brain tumors of unknown type increased from 2007-2015, especially in the age group 20-39 years of age. According to the authors, “This may be explained by higher risk for brain tumor in subjects with first use of a wireless phone before the age of 20 years taking a reasonable latency period.”

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

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.

          The Love that is YOU.

Everywhere I look / Questions for Deep Reflection / Important Dates

                         The allure of the unknown.

There is more
Majesty
in Mystery,
than in
knowing,
more Time
in a moment of
Wonder,
than in certainty,
drawn asunder.

Knowing
possesses innate limitations,
while
never knowing,
contains elements
of the Eternal,
and the allure
of the unknown.

                            We long to comprehend.

Deeply embedded
within our desire
to know,
dwells
a more deeply seated
need,
to accept
the unknown.

Yes,
we long to comprehend
the unfathomable Mysteries
of the Universe.

  But so often
as we look back,
what began with a deep focus,
faded to
black.

                               Everywhere we look.

But,
everywhere we look,
God’s Love
we find.
Victory belongs to the
power
of this Love.
Christ came to bring us
that message.

My Friends,
when our Time
on Earth
is through,
the only thing
that will truly matter,
is that someone Loved
YOU.

         The only thing that will truly matter.

As science and technology
permeate more and more
dimensions unknown,
and our consciousness
opens wide the door
for the “unnatural”
to become more and more
of the “natural”,
our separation from
the Beautiful World of Nature
will widen
evermore.

The Majesty of Mystery
gives us connection
to Life itself.
The reason
is Beautifully
Mysterious.

 “All our knowledge
brings us nearer to our
ignorance
.

And all our ignorance brings us nearer to
death.

But nearer to death,
no nearer to God.

Where is the life,’ he asks,
‘that we have lost in living?’
It is possible, is it not, to lose Life
while you are living it.”
T. S. Elliot

Yesterday, by The Beatles

Interestingly,
a Japanese researcher,
Mr. Emoto,
has studied water crystals
and observed the molecular changes    in water
resulting from our thoughts,               our words
and even our music.
Loving and happy thoughts
form Beautiful crystalline patterns,
and hateful and unhappy thoughts
form distorted crystalline patterns.

Positive thoughts create
positive realities.

Heartbreak Hotel,  by Elvis Presley

The research of Mr. Emoto
indicates that consciousness
permeates all things,
even and especially,
us.

According to H.H. Mitchell
in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the brain and Heart
are composed of 73% water,
the lungs are about 83% water,
the skin 64% water,
muscles and kidneys 79%,
and our bones are 31% water.

Little wonder
that our very fragile,
water born bodies
are highly susceptible
to damage due to
our separation from the positive
and Beautiful World of Nature,
as so many precious lives
fade to
black.

Knowledge,
possesses innate
limitations.

Is has been well established
that Psycho-social and environmental
stress factors contribute to
self-destructive behavior.
And the environment
WE created
is replete with
many causes of
stress.
It seems
that we forgot
what Life is truly
all about.

Suicide rates
are rising at an alarming pace in America,
according to the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The suicide rate went up
24 percent

“How excellent
is Thy Loving Kindness, O God!
therefore the children of men
put their Trust under the Shadow of
Thy Wings”
Psalm 36:7

    Connection to Life itself.

My Dear Friends,
have you lost
Loved ones,
as have I,
who never knew
how much you
Loved them?

Why?

The only
in Lonely
is the one
you
never met.

God exists
to show us how to give,
teach us how to live,
and guide us
with His
Love.

So much
of what Mankind
has come to know,
has led
to the dread
of anything more
ever becoming
known.

Yes,
there are limits
to what may
be seen,
what we may
be shown.

“Great
is the Mystery
of Godliness,”

1 Timothy 3:16

My Dear Parents,
precious is the sound
a child hears,
when you say
out of Love,
NO.
This far
you may come
and no farther
.

To know
this sound belongs
to me,
coming through you
from Above,
is to know
another way
you say the word,
Love.

Eternity
lies enfolded within
a Sacred
sigh
of relief,
knowing your child
is safe,
within the sound of your voice,
and Joyfully living
between two beats
of your Heart,
the one past
and the one
to be.

Eternity
lies between
not knowing,
and knowing,
YOU
are
within reach.

Eternity
is in every Moment.

Goodnight.

      Everywhere we look, God’s Love we find.

Questions
for Deep Reflection
from Job 38:5-39

“Where were you when I laid the Earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
 
Who marked off its dimensions?
Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
 

On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone,
while the     morning stars sang together and all the Angels shouted for Joy? 
“Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the Womb
when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,
when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, 
when I said,This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’? 

“Have you ever given orders to the Morning, shown the Dawn its place, 
that it might take the Earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?  The Earth takes shape like clay under a seal; its features stand out like those of a garment. 
The wicked are denied their light, and their upraised arm is broken.
“Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep? 
Have the gates of death been shown to you?
Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?
 

Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the Earth?
Tell me, if you know all this
“What is the way to the abode of Light?
And where does darkness reside?
 

Can you take them to their places?
Do you know the paths to their dwellings?
 

Surely you know, for you were already born! You have lived so many years! 

“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail
which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? 
What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed,
or the place where the east winds are scattered over the Earth?
 

Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, 
to water a land where no one lives, an uninhabited desert,  to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass? 
Does the rain have a Father? Who Fathers the drops of dew? 

From whose Womb comes the ice?
Who gives birth to the frost from the Heaven
when the waters become hard as stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen? 
“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades? Can you loosen Orion’s belt? 

Can you bring forth the Constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs? 

Do you know the Laws of the Heavens?
Can you set up God’s Dominion over the Earth?
 

“Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water? 

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?
Who gives the Ibis wisdom or gives the rooster understanding? 
Who has the Wisdom to count the clouds?
Who can tip over the water jars of the Heavens
 
when the dust becomes hard and the clods of Earth stick together? 
“Do you hunt the prey for the Lioness
and satisfy the hunger of the Lions?
Job 38:5-39

 The only in Lonely is the one you never met.

To be In the warm embrace
of a Loving Heart,

and feel God’s Love
all around,
is as near
to Heaven
as one can be

on this Earth.

“When you live
from the Heart,

you begin to touch into
the Universal experience of Love.

LOVE is the source of everything
the fabric which makes up
our very existence.”
Dr. Gail Brenner

The existence of a
Universal Consciousness,
tells us
that nothing is separate
from anything else.

Universal Consciousness
is intelligent, Loving,
all knowing, all powerful, creative
and omnipresent across all dimensions
of space and time.
And so, it is also present
in you
– or more accurately,
it is YOU.

There is no separation between your mind
and the Universal Mind,
or the Unified Field, God, Source, Creator,
the One, Universal Consciousness
or the many names that Humans give
to things we are trying to understand.

Universal Consciousness
is an Infinite, Eternal
ocean of intelligent energy.
The nature of
Universal Consciousness
is your nature.

Everything
and everyone around you,
in it’s essence,
is you.
And we find
this to be true
in studying the DNA
of all living things.

Ever since researchers
sequenced the chimp genome in 2005,
they have known that humans
share about 99% of our DNA with chimpanzees,
making them our closest living relatives.

My Dear Friends,
there aren’t two different people
on Earth,
just Life unfolding.

From the
DNA Learning Center,
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory:

All
living organisms store genetic information
using the same molecules
DNA and RNA.
Written in the genetic code of these molecules
is compelling evidence
of the shared ancestry
of all living things.”

Mice,
breed quickly and ALSO share about
99% of their genes with Humans,
so they have become the animal
model of choice
for large-scale functional studies.

Nothing is separate from anything else.

Only NOW
are we coming to realize,
that we are far, far more
than just Brothers and Sisters.

We truly are
ONE.

And now
we are free,
to let our very Human Hearts
overflow with compassion.
How can you hurt others
when they are
YOU?

Goodnight.

       How can you hurt others when they are YOU?

“Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly.
All your life
You were only waiting
for this moment to arise.
Black bird singing in the dead of night.
Take these sunken eyes
and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting
for this moment
to be free.”
Paul McCartney, John Lennon

                             Truths About Living In an Illusion

                                           by Vernon Layne

Here are common truths
that you’re living in an
ILLUSION:

READ MORE

1. You see the present through your past. Your past plays an important role in your life.  It’s there to teach you what you could have done differently or what you need to continue doing. THAT’S ALL.  It’s not there for wallowing in or condemnation. We fall short of His Glory so it’s important you learn to give yourself a break.
Let go of your past and not become its prisoner then it will be easier for you to put things in its proper perspective.

2. You believe you can control things that are uncontrollable.  Stop trying to control people and situations. One of life’s most important lessons is learning to give up the illusion of control. You may wonder how you suppose to give that up, but the fact is you were never in control. The moment you think you’re in control is the moment you’re out of control.

3. You only see the bad in yourself and others. If you ask someone to list things about themselves most will list liabilities. People have a hard time seeing the good within themselves.  Not finding the good in you makes it impossible to see the good in others.

man living an illusion

4. You believe everything you feel and think. Imagine being judged inaccurately by two people who don’t know you. Believing everything you feel and think is just like listening to two people gossip. Your feelings aren’t facts. Don’t believe everything you think and feel because they can influence you to make unwise decisions. Learn to make decisions from facts and not feeling.

5. You search for fulfillment through things. The only person you can’t run away from is yourself. There’s nothing wrong with trying to get things in life but don’t lose yourself in the process by not understanding why you’re doing it. When the chase for things becomes more important than your family and your health, then it’s a destructive rush that’s causing harm. Most of the time you’re trying to fill a void or block a feeling when you’re searching for fulfillment in things.

6. Your self-worth comes from social media. All your life you wanted to belong and fit in, so you spend a lot of time on social media– yet never quite measuring up. The more likes you get the better you feel. The reality you need to hear and afraid to admit is when you’re not getting those likes you think you should be getting, you feel down almost depressed. Depending on social media to feel relevant is an illusion many people believe.

7. You think your happiness is your mate’s responsibility. It’s not fair to your mate when you expect them to be responsible for your happiness. They’re there to add to your happiness. It’s your responsibility to see that you’re happy. It’s not healthy and it doesn’t work when one partner isn’t responsible for his own feeling, thoughts and actions.  A healthy relationship is when a couple can grow in unity while at the same time growing as individuals, so take ownership of your own happiness.

8. You’re convinced everything supposed to go your way. Self-centeredness is at the core of self-deception. It can create an illusion that you’re right and the world is wrong base on a feeling or an idea. You began to see yourself as a victim. Understand that everyone experiences life challenges and that you’re not the only one. To see things clearly bring your attitude in line with reality.

9.  You think you don’t need help. Most people, myself included, believed at some point in their life that they could do it all by themselves. This kind of thinking doesn’t work very well. The only guarantee you will get is being frustrated and exhausted.

We are here to help and support one another. Your life will be enhanced when you’re able to see people as a gift from God. Take the time and get to know the gifts God have given you by learning to trust others, reaching out to others, and admitting your need for others.

10. You believe you can’t change. It’s important to examine this false belief because it may not be yours. You could have picked it up from your parents. I know this may sound a little harsh but some parents tell their children self-defeating things. Not all illusions come from you. Some are created by others.

11. You think your success is because of the work you’ve done. Don’t become a legend in your own mind. As you begin to experience success in life it’s important to give credit where credit is due. Selfishly claiming what belongs to God is the quickness way to lose it all. Pride usually comes before the fall so give the Glory to God.

12. You feel you’re alone. I call this the ultimate illusion. The next time you’re by yourself look around you. Feel the air. Go outside and watch the squirrels chase each other. Look up and see the clouds move gracefully. God’s presence is all around you. You are never alone.

“Foolish dreamers
live in a world of illusion;
wise realist plant their feet
on the ground

Proverbs 14:18

So Close That It Is Far Away / New American Plate / Lola’s Secretarial Service / Friday: At School ALL Day

Like the Flower
that shatters the
Stone
,
Love can fracture
the Heart
hardened by the absence
of Joy.

Even the most fragile
has the power to overcome
the strongest force.

Love Majestic
in its simplicity,
opens wide the window
of Wisdom.

“Being deeply Loved by someone
gives you strength,
while Loving someone deeply
gives you courage.”
Lao Tzu

To speak
in the present tense,
and live
in this precious moment,
requires us to Love
what is all around,
to regret
not one minute,
and Love
what is in us
and is
us.

  Tomorrow can fade to black or rise like a magnificent Rainbow.

Have you ever thought
of home?
When home
is so close,
that it is far
away,
and you
hold on
to your thoughts
so hard
you can never
stay
in the place
of your dreams,
that for which
you Pray.

       Put on each day and wear it all day long.

And you pause
to ask,
“Am I
living in the embrace
of memories
never chanced to be?”
The colors
of our dreams
fade
onto sad deserted shores
of such memories
never brought to
Life,
never made.

 Beauty wakes pure authentic feelings.

The greatest threat
we face
is change,
but we cannot
survive
without it.

So put on
each day
and wear it
all day long.
And listen
very carefully
for the night bird
song.
Then give
your troubles
to the song,
not the singer.

There is serenity
in what we partake
with the guidance
of our Lord,
even when we fail
to contemplate
the incomprehensible.

  Love opens wide the window of Wisdom.

Think
not on yourself.
Make not a
Stone
of what once was
your Heart.

My Dear Friends,
One

act of Mercy
can free the
Soul.
One fragile Flower
can shatter
the stone.

Tomorrow
can fade to
black,
or rise
like a magnificent
Rainbow.

                       Live in this precious moment.

No matter
where you run,
without the Love
of God,
you keep running
into yourself.
But With
His Precious Love,
God will raise you
Lovingly
above yourself.

Beauty
wakes pure authentic
feelings.
It touches the
Soul.
And the beauty
in your Heart
far exceeds that
of any Flower,
any setting of the Sun,
any sum of the parts
more than the
whole.

                    Love what is all around.

The bitter tragedy
of Human Life
is that it is too fragile,
a transitory, provisional parchment
of living and
being.

Yet,
to be sheltered in the warmth
of Heavenly Grace,
provides a Landscape
laced with Eternal Life
and Lovingness.

                     Beauty touches the Soul.

Let us pause
to reflect
upon our allotted time,
and give
Thanks.
We can shatter
the World of illusion
and become that
which God
truly wants of us:
to become
His Child
again.

Goodnight.

                   Put on each day and wear it.

“You are a Divine Being.
An all-powerful Creator.
You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt,
and within you dwells the infinite wisdom
of the ages and the sacred creative force
of All that is, will be and ever was.”

Anthon St. Maarten

In Philosophy
this week:

Part I
Is it possible
for our brains to be hacked
like computers?
What are the implications
of gaining access to this
technology?
What are the questions
we need to ask
relative to the ethics
involved in mind reading
and control?
Under hypnosis
reality can be altered.
What are some Historical
examples
of Human minds
being retrained
(altering reality)?
What devastation resulted
from mass hypnosis?
And what of Freedom?
Will it become
a concept of the past?

Part II
What is Life?
Is Life essentially
energy,
that can never be destroyed,
only transformed?
Does energy
have no beginning
and no end.
How does our understanding
of Life as energy
relate to concepts of
eternal Life.

No single food can prevent cancer,
but the right combination of foods may help make a difference.
At mealtimes, strike a balance of at least
two-thirds plant-based foods
and no more than one-third animal protein.
This “New American Plate”
is an important cancer fighting tool,
according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Fruits and vegetables are rich in cancer-fighting nutrients
— and the more color, the more nutrients they contain.
These foods can help lower your risk in a second way, too,
when they help you reach and maintain a healthy body weight.
Carrying extra pounds increases the risk for multiple cancers,
including colon, esophagus, and kidney cancers.
Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark green,
red, and orange vegetables.

Naturally occurring folate is an important B vitamin
that may help protect against cancers of the colon, rectum, and breast. You can find it in abundance on the breakfast table.
Fortified breakfast cereals and whole wheat products
are good sources of folate.
So are orange juice, melons, and strawberries.

Other good sources of folate are asparagus and eggs.
You can also find it in beans, sunflower seeds, and leafy green vegetables like spinach or romaine lettuce.
The best way to get folate is not from a pill,
but by eating enough fruits, vegetables,
and enriched grain products.

Cutting back on processed meats
like bologna, ham, and hot dogs will help lower your risk
of colorectal and stomach cancers.
Also, eating meats that have been preserved by smoking
or with salt raises your exposure to chemicals
that can potentially cause cancer.

Whether it’s the lycopene
the pigment that gives tomatoes their red color –
or something else isn’t clear.
But some studies have linked eating tomatoes
to reduced risk of several types of cancer,
including prostate cancer.
Studies also suggest that processed tomato products
such as juice, sauce, or paste
increase the cancer-fighting potential.

Green tea, may be a strong cancer fighter.
In laboratory studies, green tea has slowed or prevented
the development of cancer in colon, liver, breast, and prostate cells.
It also had a similar effect in lung tissue and skin.
And in some longer term studies,
tea was associated with lower risks
for bladder, stomach, and pancreatic
cancers.

Grapes and grape juice, especially purple and red grapes,
contain resveratrol.
Resveratrol has strong antioxidant
and anti-inflammatory properties.
In laboratory studies, it has prevented
the kind of damage that can trigger
the cancer process in cells.

Eternity In The Human Heart / ADHD Diets / Classes Resume Sept. 5

“He has made everything
Beautiful

in its time.
He has also set Eternity
in the Human Heart.”
– Ecclesiastes 3:11

                                 Beautiful in its time.

The beginning of Life,
and the end of Living,
are like the morning
and evening Sky,
streaked with the Beauty of
Truth.

A Clarion Call
begins
ALL,
and your time
is here.
Wake up
and come alive.

For Earthly Life
is but a vapor,
in the eyes of Eternity.

“A vapor is short-lived.
You see the mist at one moment
and a few minutes later it’s gone.
You see the steam
coming out of your coffee cup

and in just a second,
it disappears into the air.
Life is like that.
– bible.org

YOU,
are the Harmonious Symphony
of God’s Ultimate Expression.
And your fascination
with Life
can turn into Love
for you,
and into the
Joy of Living.

         Fascination with Life.

Don’t deny
the precious moments
you feel.
Even wandering Rainbows
leave a bit
of their color,
just for YOU.
Look for it
in your Heart.

      Sing your name.

And if you listen,
not with the mind,
but with your Sacred
Heart,
the morning Songbird
will sing
your name.
And you will know
the lingering Sunsets
grownups seldom understand,
peer through
the curtains
of pain and sorrow,
as this day ends
with a promise
of Tomorrow.

Hearts in Heaven
beat in time
with yours.
And a song
of Salvation,
by the deliverance
of God,
endures.
Celebration
will be yours,
as the illusions
of this Life
are cast aside,
and YOU
become more Beautiful
and real,
in the next.

                A promise of tomorrow.

When Hearts
deny the brevity
of the moment,
the Light
of a Star,
posing as mine,
passes for
Time.

What an illusion
this Life
can become.

May Life
always bring you
your wishes
upon a Star.

“Because the Holy Spirit of God
is in you,
you are never alone.
You are never hopeless.
You are never powerless.
Because He is in you
and with you wherever you go,
He is never distant.”
– Stormie Omartian

Do not deny
every moment you feel.
These moments
are real.

Hearts are hardened
when they
betray such
to each other.

Enjoy Life
at your leisure,
as you happily concede
the mandates of Heaven
lay inscribed
in the Heart,
and in what
you Believe.

             Streaked with the Beauty of Truth.

Life
is not an answer,
but many, many
questions.
They lay
between every beat
of every Heart,
as silence shouts
through every night
of never knowing
Love
is the question,
and the answer.

My Dear Friends,
take a few moments
each day
and look deeply
into your Child’s eyes.
Look
until you feel your Child’s
Heart
beating in time
with yours.
Listen intently,
and you can hear
the spaces
between your child’s
thoughts.

    Every precious Living thing.

Then softly speak,
and fill the voids
with Love.
And one day,
ALL thoughts will be
overflowing,
with Love for
YOU,
and for everyone,
and every
precious Living thing.
Eternity
lies enfolded within
a Sacred
sigh
of relief,
knowing your child
is safe,
within the sound of your voice,
and joyfully living
between two beats
of your Heart,
the one past
and the one
to be.

Eternity
lies between
not knowing,
and knowing,
YOU
are
within reach.

Eternity
is in every Moment.

Goodnight.

Love is the question, and the answer.

ADHD diets
haven’t been researched a lot. Data is limited and results are mixed. Many health experts, though, think that what you eat and drink may play a role in helping symptoms.

One expert, Richard Sogn, MD, says that whatever is good for the brain is likely to be good for ADHD. You may want to eat:

A high-protein diet. Beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts can be good sources of protein. Eat these kinds of foods in the morning and for after-school snacks. It may help improve concentration.

Fewer simple carbohydrates. Cut down on how many of these you eat: candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins.

More complex carbohydrates. These are the good guys. Load up on vegetables and some fruits, including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi. Eat this type of food in the evening and it may help you sleep.

More omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these in tuna, salmon, and other cold-water white fish. Walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil are other foods with these in them. You could also take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement. The FDA approved an omega compound called Vayarin as part of an ADHD management strategy.

Who We Already Are

Dedicated
with all my Love
to Lila.
She passed away yesterday.
I thank God
for the beautiful Gift
of her precious
Life.

Rescued
from the uncertainties of Life,
Lila returned all my Love
and rescued my Heart.

And in my Heart
she will remain.

“You are shelter from the storm.
The shadows fade away,
all cares pass away.

As hour by hour, day by day
Your love lightens up the sky,
As it shines across the night.

And when the end of day is come,
Stay with me through the dark
and bring me home.
You are there whichever way I go.

Keep me safely night and day.
Always there,
whenever I’m alone.”
– Libera

                           Simple moments renew us.

Rev. & Mrs. Don Welsh

Reverend Don Welsh
shared a truly beautiful insight:

“Spiritual growth
is really a process
of pushing back the boundaries
of our ignorance of God
and our own nature,
so that we grow into
who we already are.”

So very much
of what we search for,
long for
and fervently Pray for,
is already here.

“It takes courage
to grow up
and be
who you really are.”
E. E. Cummings

                    Such is the nature of Love.

Like a Flower
in Spring,
we are
the beautiful unfolding
of a Mystery.

To the mind of mankind,
it may not seem
to matter
that the songs of our lives,
the symphony of our Creation,
is understood.

The magnetic resonance
from the music
created by our brief passage
through time,
passes right past
Human intellect
and travels into
the Sacred Heart,
which always remembers,
always reflects.

“God is Love
and only creates out of a desire
to express Love.”
– Ernest Holmes “Living the Science of Mind”

My Friends,
we
are becoming aware
of a unifying energy structure
to our Universe,
a field of intelligence permeating
everything.

                       Always reflects.

“Science
is saying that everything
that vibrates
possesses intelligence,
and everything vibrates,
and there is a central intelligence
everything
vibrates to.”
Lynne McTaggart, “The Field”

Such is the nature
of Love.
The Compass
of the Heart
guides us toward
the destiny of Truth.

Rivers
of tears
over many, many years
flow through the veins of time.
And the embodiment of
Love
is found in each precious
drop.

Simple moments
renew us.
Each act of
Kindness
gives birth
to Hope,
saves us from
ourselves.

“There is a Higher Will
present throughout all Creation
and within all Created things,
possessed of another agenda
than what seems obvious
or expected.”
P. M. H. Atwater

There peals an everlasting song.
To the Sound of Thunder,
the Stone of a Cave
was rolled back,
to let the Holy Spirit
live free again.

And we observed
the mirror of
reality
turned into a
window.
The Beauty of
Life
resurrected,
and the Eternity of
Life
reflected.

        The Beauty of Life resurrected.

“Science has shown
the particle
and the wave
are the same.
God
is both immanent
and transcendent,
internal and external,
composed and
Compassionate,
the One
while also the Many
 in One.”
P. M. H. Atwater

“When I applied my mind
to know wisdom,
and to see the business that is done on earth,
how neither day nor night
one’s eyes see sleep;
then I saw all the work of God,
that man cannot find out
the work that is done

under the sun.
However much man may toil in seeking,
he will not find it out;
even though a wise man claims to know,
he cannot find it out.”
– Ecclesiastes 8:16-17

        There is a Higher Will.
