Love Immortal / Left Alone, We Will Not Survive / Atex Trash Service Highly Recommended

“Now
at the brink of my Life,
realization dawned.

All my Life I was wandering
in search of Love.

Searching for HIM
in the faces of mortals.

The worldly Love,
which I never achieved,

has pushed me
closer to my God.

Finally,
the long wait receded.

And my Love has become
Immortal.”

– Aarzoo Mehek

“Immortal love, forever full,
Forever flowing free,
Forever shared, forever whole,
A never ebbing sea!

Through Him
the first fond prayers are said
Our lips of childhood frame,
The last low whispers of our dead
Are burdened with His Name.

O Lord and Master of us all,
Whate’er our name or sign,
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,
We test our lives by Thine.

The letter fails, the systems fall,
And every symbol wanes;
The Spirit over brooding all,
  Eternal Love
remains.”

John Greenleaf Whittier

Our Hearts have eyes,
Beloved of what we learn,
with warm embrace
and gentle voice,
and Everlasting Grace.

Every thought
of your Creator,
leaves no more room
in the Galaxy
of your mind.

Goodnight.

“May it be
an evening Star shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls,
your Heart will be true.
You walk a lonely road
Oh how far you are
from Home.

May it be the shadow’s call
will fly away

May it be you journey on
to light their day.

When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the Sun.

Believe
and you will find your way.

A promise
lives within you now.”

Our Need for Love

When left alone, we will not survive.
read more

by the Dalai Lama

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. Therefore, we need a genuine sense of responsibility and a sincere concern for the welfare of others.

We have to consider what we human beings really are. We are not like machine-made objects. If we were merely mechanical entities, then machines themselves could alleviate all of our suffering and fulfill our needs. However, since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. Instead, we should consider our origins and nature to discover who we are and what it is we require.

There is the critical period of brain development from the time of birth up to at least the age of three or four, during which time loving physical contact is the single most important factor for the normal growth of the child. If the child is not held, hugged, cuddled, or loved, its development will be impaired and its brain will not mature properly.

As children grow older and enter school, their need for support must be met by their teachers. If a teacher not only imparts academic education, but also assumes responsibility for preparing students for life, his or her pupils will feel trust and respect, and what has been taught will leave an indelible impression on their minds. On the other hand, that which is taught by a teacher who does not show true concern for his or her students’ overall well-being will not be retained for long.

Nowadays, many children grow up in unhappy homes. If they do not receive proper affection, in later life they will rarely love their parents and, not infrequently, will find it hard to love others. This is very sad.

In the end, since a child cannot survive without the care of others, Love is its most important nourishment. The happiness of childhood, the allaying of the child’s many fears, and the healthy development of its self-confidence all depend directly upon Love.

Creating Reality /

“Learning is the beginning of wealth.
Searching and learning is
where the Miracle process all begins.
The great breakthrough in your life
comes when you realize it,
that you can learn anything you need
to learn to accomplish any goal
that you set for yourself.
This means there are no limits
on what you can be,
have or do.”

– Albert Einstein

               Hope is resurrected.

Disquieted by doubt,
we seek answers
to questions we seemingly cannot
formulate,
and guidance from those
we do not yet know exist.
Searching,
ever searching,
we find ourselves
slipping deeper and deeper
into dark despair.
Not knowing
the why
or where.

But we exist,
in dimensions unaware,
now and forever,
here
and everywhere.
The beat
our Heart
is felt
by everyone,
in our every moment
on Earth.
Such is the Nature
of God’s
Love.

Yes,
we are One,
and so very much
more.

Hope
is resurrected
in our fragile Hearts
from Great Truths
that have come from
Above,
from the deep Wellspring of
Eternal Love
found in the Sacred
and Precious Word
of God.

Bring your wandering
Heart Home,
to Him.
Home
is where your Heart
longs to live.

“I fear no foe,
with Thee at hand to Bless;

Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s sting?
Where, grave, thy victory?

I triumph still,
if Thou abide with me.”

– Henry F. Lyte, Will H. Monk

We never escape
the consequences of our actions.
The hardships and suffering that exists today
seem ever present,
because of our very narrow view
of Human purpose,
of our reason for Being.

My Dear Friends,
the highest form
of intelligence
that exists this day
and evermore,
is Love.
And you are its Embodiment.
You are the Manifestation
of its Being.

And as vast and complex
as is the Universe of Worlds,
YOU
are so much more.
For their reality
is the Creation
of your mind
and Heart
through the Will
of God,
the Father you come from,
not through.

Trust
is the fundamental process
for creating reality.

TRUST
in the Voice of One
who told you the Truth,
long, long ago.

Then Jesus told them,
“I tell you the TRUTH,
if you have Faith and don’t doubt,
you can do things like this and much more.
YOU
can even say to this mountain,
‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’
and it WILL happen.
– Matthew 21:21

Yes!
Jesus knew the TRUTH.
And now,
just now,
science is confirming
what He knew,
and wanted to convey
to YOU.
Reality is centered
in your mind and Heart.
YOU
have the God given ability
to create the World
around you.
Through your Faith
in God,
and in yourself,
you can do anything.

Please click on the link below:
The Role of Trusting in the Process of Creating Reality

If you see the importance of Trust,
of Faith,
YOU can now take the next step forward.
You can create the reality
of your Life,
the Life you desire
and long for others.

More vast and complex than the World outside of you.

The Essence of your “Being”
was Created pure, good, and Eternal,
and more vast and complex
than the World outside of you.

The Intelligence of your Love
can reveal the True inner Nature
of God’s Divine Love.
And your Love
can truly fill the many lives
around you,
and fill the World
with Beauty.

        Fill the World with Beauty.

 When YOU respond
with Love and Compassion,
by advising those around you
to return to the Beautiful Moral Standards
and the uplifting Principles
taught in the Precious Word of God,
you have sown the Wind,
and prevented our Children
from reaping the
whirlwind.

“Whoever is wise,
let him understand these things;
whoever is discerning, let him know them.
For the ways of the Lord are right,
and the righteous will walk in them.
But transgressors will stumble in them.”

Hosea 14:9

My Dear Friends,
it is not enough
to fight for survival,
to endure day by day.
It is far more important to enjoy it,
to truly live this Life
while you can.

 Breathe deep the sweet air
of compassion
and forgiveness.
The precious stillness
found sitting quietly
and waiting for you,
can be filled
with the sweet victory
found only in
Prayer.

And your Heart
may truly be found
only within
the Being
of another.

Goodnight.

A Song Begins to Form / Surprising Mental Benefits of Clean Eating / Friday: at School (Shakespeare Rehearsal)

“Nighttime sharpens,
Heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs,
And wakes imagination
Silently the senses
Abandon their defenses

Slowly, gently
Night unfurls it’s Splendor
Grasp it, sense it
Tremulous and tender.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber, Charles Hart,
Richard Henry, Zachary Stilgoe

Remembering my precious “Kirby”.

There’s a whisper in the dark,
as Life comes to be
unafraid
to pierce the night
with imagination
and Love
and Light.
Unfolding in our dreams
we come to be,
where it seems,
there is no end
to what we can see.

Then a song begins to form
from deeply felt memories
that once were we,
echoing Love’s harmony
and joined in endless
flight
heard throughout the World
of our awareness,
on this precious
night.

And intoned we hear,
we shall never be alone,
as Hearts beat as one,
and again we find Love,

joined by cherished voices from the past,
and a deep Abiding Love
from Above.

“Oh Great Spirit,
Whose Voice I hear in the winds,
And whose Breath gives life to all the world,
hear me!
I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in Beauty,
and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.

Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength,
not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy –
myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when Life fades,
as the fading sunset
my Spirit

may come to you without shame.”
– Native American Prayer

Such is
the Miracle of Love,
that it goes
on and on and on.
Not through time,
that may have never really existed,
or space,
not without end,
but through
Grace,
Everlasting to Everlasting.
Such is the Precious Love of
God.

“Grace, amazing Grace,
takes the powerful nature of Love
to the next level.
Grace is the width, and depth, and breadth of Love
reaching out, rippling across the ponds of time
to reach into the Hearts
of the lost and searching.
Grace is the freeing element of Love.”

I am rendered silent
when trying to fathom
the “Grace” of God’s Love.
How great is the Love of our Father?
Were we to spend our entire Life
trying to comprehend,
we could never grasp
its depth.

“Yea,
I have Loved thee

with an everlasting Love;
therefore with Loving kindness
have I drawn thee.”
– Jeremiah 31:3

Day after day
God’s Love
rises like the Dawn,
and always shines
upon you and me.

And through the dark of night
voices from the past
keep calling,
until
the Light of Dawn
chases away
every whisper
of our remembrances and imaginings
that begged to stay.

Annie and Alex, ages 8 and 5 (1992)

Old friends they are,
the rocks I tread upon –
I kick out from
under my bare feet.
Familiar they are,
these old friends
as comforting as the
ground,
belonging to me
as I to them.

My memory
seemingly seeps from the
Sacred soil
and back into me,
giving me
a sense of Peace,
finding some comfort
here.

 The silence is my teacher.
The calming air I breathe,
I find warm and inviting
and free.

Under the comforting warmth
of a beautiful spreading Tree,
I look to the Heavens
through the flickering,
whispering leaves.

This Sacred Place
I can never leave –
It never left me.
I belong here,
beneath the beautiful
canopy
of God’s Eternal Love.
What God provides
in Nature,
nurtures me.
It steals my Heart,
and leaves my Spirit
free.

I Pray
you will find
God’s Love
hidden deep within
the Forest
of your Heart.

“There is One Ultimate Loving Energy
that is present in all that exists.
You may call it whatever you are comfortable with:
God, Spirit, Source, the Great I Am, Allah, Yahweh, etc.
This is not a personality outside of us,
but rather a Presence within each of us.
We are inherently Spiritual Beings
having a Human experience.
We live in an abundant, unlimited Universe
and within us lies all the Wisdom, Love and Power
needed to create full, Joyous
prosperous lives.”
– Rev. Lee Wolak
Agape Center For Spiritual Living

Such moments
as I am with my Mother,
Nature,
truly magnify
the Miracle of Life
in me.

Goodnight

What God provides in Nature, nurtures me.

“Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers.
The future’s in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change.
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change
Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever.”

The Surprising Benefits of Clean Eating

by Matthew Solan
read more

Eating unprocessed food is a great way to improve your overall diet, but proponents say it can also do great things for your mental health.

Erica learned the hard way how food affects her physical and mental health. Ten years ago, she worked in the high-pressure, go-go-go TV industry. Meals were devoured in minutes. Drinking two cans of Coke a day was the norm.

The work stress became overwhelming, and she soon left. But it wasn’t until later that she made the connection between what she ate and how it made her feel.

“I was not happy and my job at that time was no longer rewarding,” she says, “but I came to understand how my eating habits and choices had contributed to that.”

Erica realized that her food choices had aggravated her episodes of stress – and, conversely, that her stress had contributed to poor food choices.

“When I adopted a clean eating diet, where I cut out the processed and comfort foods, I immediately noticed a change not only in my mood, but how I reacted when things went wrong,” Erica says.

“No longer was my instinct to reach for the chips, soda, or ice cream.”

Less packaged, more whole

The term “clean eating” is trendy nowadays.

An entire magazine is devoted to the subject. From TV chef Curtis Stone and Whole Foods co-founder John Mackey to actresses Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba, a slew of personalities and celebrities swear by clean eating.

But what does it mean exactly?

“Without all the excess sugar from processed foods and dairy, I had much less of the mental ups and downs that can happen when faced with daily stress.

“There are a lot of different interpretations, and no one fixed definition,” says

Pamela Fergusson, RD, PhD, a registered dietitian and consultant with Fresh Start Nutrition in Toronto.

“But generally, it refers to eating less processed foods and more whole foods.”

That means food in its natural or near-natural state, with minimal or no added chemicals, additives, or refined sugar. Ideally, what you eat should not be processed, or minimally processed, allowing it to retain high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients.

One way to approach clean eating is to skip anything that comes in a box, can, or similar packaging.

But there are exceptions.

“For instance, beans come in cans that may add a little extra salt for flavor and preservation, but they are still beans, which are a nutritious whole food,” Fergusson notes.

You can ID processed foods as those that undergo changes from their natural state: think instant oatmeal instead of steel-cut oats, or French fries instead of whole potatoes.

Sound simple?

For the most part, it is.

“Clean eating encourages eating more of the right kind of foods without thinking about low-fat, low-calorie, or low-carb,” says Fergusson.

If you follow a particular eating plan – including a vegetarian, vegan or Paleo diet – you can still incorporate clean eating into your regimen. Just make a point to avoid processed staples.

For instance, vegetarians may enjoy frozen veggie burgers, but they don’t meet the guidelines of clean eating. Vegans may opt for soy cheese, but that’s often made with additives and preservatives.

Food-mood connection 

Clean eating can have a positive impact on your mood. Indeed, research is beginning to demonstrate how our food choices – not just what we eat, but what we don’t eat – can influence how we think and feel.

The scientific connection between our brain and food is an intertwining path, but here’s an abbreviated version:

When you get stressed, the body goes into fight-or-flight mode, releasing the hormones adrenal and cortisol to combat the stressful event. This reaction typically suppresses our appetite.

If stress persists, however, and you find yourself in a constant state of worry, anxiety, or prolonged exposure to stressful situations, these hormones overload the body and cause heightened inflammation and negative emotions.

“The worse someone feels, the more likely they will seek comfort,” explains Eva Selhub, MD, author of the books Your Health Destiny, The Love Response and Your Brain on Nature.

“Food can act as that comfort, which is why we call foods high in fat and sugar ‘comfort foods.’”

While it can make people feel better in the short term, comfort food serves only as a temporary fix, Selhub warns.

“You find yourself craving more feel-good foods to help fight the stress,” she says. “High amounts of these trans fats and high-sugar foods can further flame inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain, which creates more mental fog and depression.”

Healthy diet, enhanced mood

While your diet can contribute to stress, it may also control how your brain responds to them.

That’s why the goal of clean eating is to eliminate unhealthy “feel-good” food and replace it with natural choices that can actually promote greater brain health.

Studies have found that people who follow the Mediterranean diet, for example – which includes plenty of whole vegetables and fruits, unprocessed grains, fish, and other seafood – have a 25%-35% lower risk of depression compared with those who follow a typical “Western” diet high in processed and refined foods.

One reason that a diet abundant in natural-state foods benefits your brain and mood is that these foods contain high amounts of antioxidants, which have been shown to not only soothe inflammation and oxidative stress but help prevent it in the first place.

A “sweeter” outlook, naturally

If you battle unhealthy cravings as part of your stress, clean eating is a way to break free from your dependence.

Taylor, co-owner of St. Pete Strength and Conditioning in Florida, turned to clean eating when he became more dedicated to his weight-training regimen.

His approach: stick with foods close to their natural state, which helped eliminate high amounts of refined sugar in his diet.

Taylor says he noticed an almost instant change for the better.

“I’m detailed-oriented, I sweat the small stuff, and I get stressed easily. But the clean eating helps me stay more focused and not get sidetracked with distractions.”

Taylor pointed to cutting out sugar, a feeder of inflammation, as the main factor for his improved outlook.

“Without all the excess sugar from processed foods and dairy, I have much less of the mental ups and downs that can happen when faced with daily stress. I’m much better able to go with the flow,” he says.

Another advantage to clean eating is that it can expand your palate, so you’re not always stuck in a food rut.

“Clean eating encourages eating more of the right kind of foods without thinking about low-fat, low-calorie, or low-carb.”

“Clean eating is more about what you can have rather than what you can’t have,” says Rebecca Katz, MS, author of The Healthy Mind Cookbook.

“You’ll discover that when you eliminate a lot of processed ingredients, you’ll add more fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats that can turn into Technicolor meals full of bright greens, reds, and yellows.”

For her part, Erica discovered the many wonders of kale through clean eating.

“I learned that it was such a nutrient-rich food, and there were many ways to use it,” she says. “I use it in my breakfast smoothie, on lunchtime sandwiches, and as a side dish for dinner.”

Keep in mind that clean eating is designed to be flexible, so your healthy efforts will not collapse if you take a day off. If anything, the mental benefits of clean eating make it easier to rebound without guilt or stress.

“Now if I slip up, even over a few days, I’m aware of it and can more easily get back on track,” says Erica. “I don’t stress about it. That’s what’s so great about making positive change – it stays with you.”

Tips to Get Started

Here are some tips for making the move into clean eating:

Begin with breakfast. It’s a smaller meal and easier to prepare. Replace processed cereal with oatmeal, or a smoothie made with almond milk, greens, and frozen fruit.

Plan your meals. Organize and prep your meals for the week over the weekend. Have your fruits and vegetables chopped and stored in a container ready to go. It’s easier to reach into the fridge and grab what you need than to feel overwhelmed trying to prepare an entire meal from scratch.

Make a sweep of your kitchen. Get rid of processed foods lurking in your cupboards, refrigerator, and freezer. “This frees up space for you to add healthier alternatives that make cooking much more efficient,” says Katz.

Examples of “Clean Eating” Foods

The focus of clean eating is to consume more whole foods in their natural state and to avoid heavily processed foods.

When in doubt, read the label. “The ingredient list should be short and recognizable,” says Katz. “If you can’t say them, don’t eat them.”

Avoid anything with chemical-sounding names or phrases like “artificial coloring” and “flavors.” Here are a few examples of food staples that make up clean eating, according to Katz:

  • Healthy fats such as olive oil, grass-fed butter, and coconut oil
  • Fresh fruits – or canned, frozen, or dried fruit with no added sugar
  • Fresh vegetables – or canned or frozen vegetables with no added sauces or salt
  • Nuts like almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and walnuts
  • Organic or vegetarian eggs
  • Unrefined grains, like whole-grain wheat bread and pasta, non-microwave popcorn, steel-cut oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, and whole-wheat flour
  • Canned beans and legumes with little or no added salt (rinsing can reduce sodium by 35%)
  • Plain yogurt
  • Plain nut butters
  • Unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • Organic or grass-fed meat, including beef and chicken
  • Fresh or frozen fish, including Pacific cod, salmon, and tilapia
  • Herbs and spices such as turmeric, basil, rosemary, cinnamon, and ginger

Cooking Tip

How you prepare your food can also help you eat clean. Stick with flash-cook methods like stir-frying and steaming, which lock in more vitamins and minerals. Avoid high-fat cooking techniques, like deep frying or stewing your food in animal or vegetable fats.

“Hold on to what is good,
even if it’s a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
even if it’s easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
even if I’ve gone away from you.”
Pueblo Indian Prayer

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.

“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

The Word “Love” is Inadequate / Robert Lotman / Spring Break This Week

There is Beauty
all around you,
even unto a singular
drop of water
reflecting the World
at large.

Just as you
reflect
ALL the Love that abounds
all around.

“Listen to each drop of rain
whispering secrets in vain.
Frantically searching for someone to hear
their story before they hit ground.
Please don’t let go.
Can’t we stay for a while?
It’s just to hard to say goodbye.
Listen to the rain.

I stand alone in the storm.
Suddenly,
sweet words take hold.

(Listen listen)
Hurry,
they say
for you haven’t much time.

Open your eyes
to the Love around you.

You may feel you’re alone.
But I’m here still with you.
You can do what you dream.
Just remember
to listen to the rain.”

– Amy Lee

                   Reflecting the World.

My Friends,
your smile
is reflected in another,
who smiled at
You.
Your laughter
was alive before you,
in the birth
of awareness,
in the magnificence
of our predicament,
in the delight
of our Humanity,
in celebration of our
perfect imperfections.

“In one drop of water
are found all the secrets
of all the oceans;
in one aspect of You
are found ALL the aspects
of Existence.”
Kahlil Gibran

God
is in Love
with YOU.
How
could it not be?
He created you.
He cherishes you.
His Son
died for you.

The World reflect
dances like silver,
mirrored in the waters
of every lake
and stream,
in every drop of water,
in the Hope
of every
Dream.

Yes,
there is Beauty
ALL around.
And
the greatest Beauty,
the most magnificent of all,
is to be found in
YOU.

Know
that it is the waves of Love
that turn the Wheels of Heaven.
Without Love,
NOTHING in the world would have Life.

With one Rose
you can buy hundreds of Rose gardens.
Where, for one seed
you get a whole wilderness?
For one weak breath,
the Divine Wind?”
Rumi

          The history of ALL mankind.

Buried
deep within the DNA
of every person,
lies the History
of ALL Mankind.

A new Universe
has been discovered –
inside each of over
one trillion Human cells,
It harbors information systems
more complex than anything
ever designed by Humanity’s
very best minds.

“DNA is like
a software program,
only MUCH more complex
than anything we’ve ever devised.”
– Bill Gates

The information in our DNA
is equivalent to a dozen SETS
of The Encyclopaedia Britannica –
more than 384 volumes
of highly detailed information
that would fill 48 feet
of library shelves!
And
it is contained in a space
only two millionths of one millimeter
thick.

You are not a drop
in the Ocean.
You are
the entire Ocean
in a drop.”
– Rumi

“He
who saves a single Life,

saves the world
entire.”

The Talmud

My Friends,
you are far more Miraculous
than anything
you can possibly imagine.

Yes,
there is magic
in the moment
that you meet
YOU.

Incomprehensible
as we may be,
indescribable as we are
ever reaching to see,
we are still searching
to be,
understood.

“You formed my inward parts,
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You,
for I am fearfully and WONDERFULLY made.
My frame was not hidden from You,
when I was made in secret,
and skillfully wrought.”
Psalms 139:13-15

In our virtuous quest,
we may come
one day
to rest
our weary minds.
For the Wisdom of the ages
lies within easy
reach –
within the Pages
of the Holy Bible.

“Every being exists
in intimate relation with other beings
and in constant exchange of gifts with each other.
But this relationship is BEYOND pragmatic use.
It is rather a mutual sharing of existence
in the Grand Venture
of the Universe itself.”
– Thomas Berry

               The word “Love” is inadequate.

It’s hard to say
that I’d rather stay awake

when I’m asleep,
‘Cause everything
is NEVER
as it seems.”

Adam R. Young

  Search your Heart
in still, quiet moments
of what is left
of your brief Life.
Find the purpose
God desires,
for what you have left
to give.

It is far different
than you have imagined.
It is
larger than yourself.
It will last for Eternity.
It is
in the brevity of Life
and in the simplicity of language:
Love.

“The Universe
spills through our dreams.
The future belongs
to the most compelling story.
Even the word “Love”
is inadequate to define

the Force that wove
the fabric of
space-time.”
Drew Dellinger

Acceptance
of God’s Love
is a gently journey.

Goodnight.

Grace Filled Living, Loving, Giving, and Forgiving / Maintaining a Healthy Outlook / Friday: At School

“The meadows are covered with flocks
and the valleys are mantled with grain;
they shout for
JOY

and SING.”
Psalm 65:13

God’s Love is a mysterious voyage.

In the restless calm
of evening,
you can feel
the ever-presence of
God,
listening to our Prayers,
our thoughts,
knowing our deepest desires,
as
Life gains new meaning,
and Hope for tomorrow
begins to sing
your song.

My Friends,
the result of being
in God’s presence
is JOY!

“The JOY
of the Lord
is your strength.”
Nehemiah 8:10

Our trials produce Faith
and they develop perseverance.
And when we persevere,
we prove to ourselves and to others
that our Faith is real,
and our sense
of being in God’s presence
increases
along with our
JOY
.

 “Consider it pure joy,
my brothers,
whenever you face trials
of many kinds.”
James 1:2

out-of-body

   I am the Dawn of all time.

When the moon
is born again
to peer inside
your Sacred Heart,
the Beauty of its streaming

cuts the night
like a knife,
reflecting the Light
of God’s unbelievably
Beautiful Love.

The World
sees what it wants
to see.
But only
YOU

can gaze
inside your precious
memories,
and finally come to know that
from this moment on,
Life begins anew
and goes
on and on and on.

“Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moonlight,
Someone’s thinking of me
And Loving me tonight.

Somewhere out there
If Love can see us through,
Then we’ll be together
Somewhere out there,
out
where
Dreams come true.
– James Ingram

          Somewhere out there.

You
are your Heavenly Father’s
daughter,
son,
everywhere,
everyone.

You can feel the ever presence.

So on this very brief
pathway of Life,

pause to reflect,
as you find
your mind
racing and retracing
all the Journeys
endured,
finally done.

They will lead you
back
to this moment,

and your new home
to be found
in the many Blessings
that abound.

I am
the hours

And moments of your yesterday.
I am your time gone by,
O’er days and ages fleeting,
Long since passed away
As endless years roll by.

I am the hours,
The days and moments yet to come,
Until the end of time.
All the centuries and
Seasons that are still to run,
As endless years roll by.

I’ll rise in the spark of Life
The Dawn of all time
I’ll call to the world still yet to be
The music is everywhere,
In life, in the sea and air
To join in the Perfect song
of all Eternity.

The noon of Creation rings,
And all in the Heavens sing
The Glorious song
through all Eternity.

I am
the Dawn of all time.”
– Libera

            A Dream just begun.

Stand up!
Shout at the
Sun.
Life
is not a lie.
It is a Dream
just begun.

Something
can change in you.
You can
from this very moment
be
everything you dreamed of,
whatever you wish
to see.

“The Keys to the vaults of Heaven
May be buried somewhere
in a Prayer.

The Keys to the vaults of Heaven
May be heavy or lighter than air.

Open up the vaults
We’ve got to find the keys.
The nights have been growing darker,
Even darker now
than sin.

We’ll open the vaults of Heaven.
The treasures are there within.
The keys to the vaults of Heaven
May be seen
in a pure child’s eyes.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber

Born again to peer inside your Sacred Heart.

“The two most important days
in your Life
are the day you are born,
and the day
you find out
WHY.”

– Mark Twain

When the birds
in their Heavenly trees
stop their singing,
and the Sun
has ceased its gleaming,
when the day’s journey
nears its end,
go to your Father
in thought and in Prayer.
To YOU
His Blessings
He will send.

Yes,
God’s Love
is a mysterious voyage.
He takes us
to places of the Heart.
And we
may stay there
forever and ever
and evermore.

       Life gains new meaning.

God can lift you away
from the dark of day
and free you
evermore.

“You were there,
In everything I knew,
From the moment I began.
Always there,
In every way I go,
Saved me falling,
Held my hand.

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

You are there,
Whichever way I go.
Keep me safely night and day.
Always there,
Whenever I’m alone,
Hear me calling,
Show the way.

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

Your love lightens up the sky
As it shines across the night
Stay with me through the dark
And bring me Home.”
play You Were There
by Libera

On the road of precious Living,
as our brief journey
nears its inevitable end,
direct your Sacred Heart
toward those around you.
  and be Homeward bound
again.

Let’s do some
Grace filled Living,
Loving
Giving,
and Forgiving,

before the day
we die.

Goodnight.

Maintaining a Healthy Outlook
from the University of California
San Francisco Medical Center

We have busy, demanding lives. You may feel pulled in different directions and experience stress from dealing with work, family and other matters, leaving little time for yourself. Learning to balance your life with some time for yourself will pay off with big benefits – a healthy outlook and better health.

Steps you can take:

  • Stay in touch with family and friends.
  • Be involved in your community.
  • Maintain a positive attitude and do things that make you happy.
  • Keep your curiosity alive. Lifelong learning is beneficial to your health.
  • Healthy intimacy takes all forms but is always free of coercion.
  • Learn to recognize and manage stress in your life. Signs of stress include trouble sleeping, frequent headaches and stomach problems; being angry a lot; and turning to food, drugs and alcohol to relieve stress.
  • Good ways to deal with stress include regular exercise, healthy eating habits and relaxation exercises, such as deep breathing or meditation. Talking to trusted family members and friends can help a lot. Interacting with your Faith community is helpful in times of stress.
  • Get enough sleep and rest. Adults need around eight hours of sleep a night.
  • Talk to your health care provider if you feel depressed for more than a few days; depression is a treatable illness. Signs of depression include feeling empty and sad, crying a lot, loss of interest in life, and thoughts of death or suicide. If you or someone you know has thoughts of suicide, get help right away. Call 911, a local crisis center or (800) SUICIDE.

From This Moment On / Eat Your Way to a Longer Life / Friday: At School Today

sun-spray-b

Joyful Living,
you know that I am.
You were there in my time,
held me
by the hand.

And as seasons of living
moved across
the landscape of Life,
the persistence of memory
was keeper
of my flame.

Moments
define Life:
solitary,
singular,
or together,
in joy
or in pain.

lb

            Take in the Light of Love.

In this Garden
of what was Eden,
grow beautiful flowers.
Some we picked today,
to give
to tomorrow.
These were for
Joy,
not sorrow.

And in the midnight hour
of all the time
dreamt into Life,
we stand joyfully
unafraid
to take in the Light
of Love.

Discovering and claiming
something you Love to do

has an amazing susan_bialieffect on your entire life.
It’s like a tiny perfect raindrop landing on a previously smooth, unremarkable expanse of water. The instant the drop arrives, beautiful waves of ever-enlarging rings flow across the entire surface, spreading out virtually
to infinity.

– Dr. Susan Biali, M.D.

Being a child
is easy to do,
be you
four,
twenty one,
or ninety two.
To suffer no more
agony or pain,
to be happy again,
steer the Ship toward
your childhood dreams,
and come Home
from whence you came.

“I tell you the truth,
unless you change
and become like little children,

you will never enter
the Kingdom of Heaven.

Therefore,
whoever humbles himself

like this Child
is the greatest in the Kingdom
of Heaven.
Matthew 18:1-4

girl-and-sunset-bHome is where
the Heart of a Child
lives,

the Riverside,

of Life.

“Listen easy.
You can hear God calling,
walking barefoot
by a stream.”
– Neil Diamond

The Good Lord
dreamed you
in a far different way.
He
Loved you

The Thought of You
was in His Warm Embrace.

              God is light.

My Friends,
it never gets dark
in the Light
of God’s Love,
days
are never gray,
sadness
never stays.

“God is light,
and in Him
is no darkness
at all.”
– 
1 John 1:5

We marvel
at the Light
filtering through the
leaves
on a beautiful Spring day,
like Love
filters through the Spring
of our lives.

forest

          We marvel at the Light.

When you call
God’s Name,
it’s like going
Home.

Dear Friends,
we need to look after the welfare
of people all around us.
Jesus did.
He never took
the easy way out.
He did not avoid people
and the troubles they had.
He walked into
the direction of others
and He helped them out.

s

   In Him is no darkness at all.

Life
is a mystery.
But the tyranny of tears
may be torn from pages
in the Book of Life.

Forgiveness
begats forgetful,
not regretful.

Let a Prayer
take you there,
where time
does not exist,
where you
are never alone,
never in pain,
never ashamed,
where you stand
unafraid
to Love
everyone and everything.

             Life is a Mystery.

Every Heart
beats imperfectly.
Every mind
cannot always clearly
see.

But know,
that you are precious
beyond worth.

“You are precious in My Eyes …
and I Love
YOU.”

Isaiah 43:4a

Who you were born
to be
is a Sacred Child,
held momentarily
by Mother Earth,
and Forever
by the Father
of Infinity.

Goodnight.
