We Are But One Moment in Time / Disease Prevention / Friday: Shakespeare Rehearsal at School

We are
but one moment
in Time.

In the Wilderness
of our fragile and Sacred Lives,
are Miraculous conditions that have
fostered Life
and protected us
on this Beautiful blue
Pearl in the
sky.

We live in a World
of very fragile and
incomprehensible
Beauty.

And as we pause
to admire all the Wonder of
a Beautiful Sunset,
or the simplistic elegance
of the pale Moon in flight,
we can feel
our Souls expand
in the Worship of
our Creator,
and the Magnificence
of His Day
and Night.

“Beauty is Truth,
Truth Beauty,’
– that is all
Ye know on Earth,
and all ye need to know
.”
John Keats

It is such Beauty
that can make one cry.  
The Music of the Spheres
can become Worlds of Knowledge
found in all things.
And in the eyes of those
that come to Truly know,
the Light of God’s Wisdom
will glow.

And what
do we leave behind,
if not the Wonder,
then not His way,
if not His Way,
then tears
and fears
and the ways
of wars.

“We live in a Wonderful World Jawaharlal Nehru
that is full of Beauty, charm
and adventure.
There is no end
to the adventures
we can have if only we seek them
with our eyes open.”
Jawaharlal Nehru

.
My Friends,

we are enabled to exist
with precisely what we need,
to give us what we must have
to support our Lives.
.

Let go of your worries and fears,
and Trust in the Lord,
who deeply Loves
YOU,
much, much more
than you shall ever
know.

Our Heavenly Father
has provided what we need.
Our Beautiful Home
spins in the vastness of an Ocean
of deep Space
that is our Universe.
Treasure
all the Blessings
 of your precious Life
forever.
.
And give Thanks
to the One
to whom
we owe everything.

You
are Beautiful.
You,
above all things
on Earth,
are an absolutely amazing
piece of Creation.
You
are a Child of God,
and God
is Love.
And
YOU
are Love.

Love,
My Dear Friends
is the only power
capable of spinning Worlds
into existence.

You
are Blessed
with the Supreme Love and Light
of God
and His Goddess.

I invite you
to read His Holy Word,
which will reveal itself
to YOU
as a precious Moment
in Truth.

Out of Love
He created us.
His Love
is ultimately for those
who have accepted His Truth –
Truth which alone
comes from God.

Goodnight.

“To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
power pervading the world;

To fly and find pure Ethereal Substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another Soul and to whisper to another Soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.

To be the eyes of an Eagle,
slope of a mountain;

To be a wave understanding
the influence of the Moon;

To be a Tree
and read the memory of the Leaves.

Chronic diseases —including heart disease,stroke, diabetes, and cancer – account for some of the most common health problems in the United States, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Yet many of these chronic diseases are preventable, as they’re linked to poor diet and lifestyle choices including tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, and inadequate physical activity.

The CDC reports some sobering statistics about Americans:

  • Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability.
  • 70% of annual deaths are due to chronic diseases.
  • These preventable conditions not only compromise quality of life, they add to rising health care costs—75% of our health care dollars are devoted to treat these diseases.
  • Among adults ages 20 to 74, diabetes remains the leading cause of kidney failure, blindness, and non-traumatic lower-extremity amputations.

The good news is that you have the power to help prevent chronic disease, as making positive diet and lifestyle changes can help reduce risk.

Eating healthy foods, getting enough exercise, and refraining from tobacco and excessive alcohol use confer numerous health benefits – including possibly preventing the onset of chronic diseases.

Hope Has a Place, a Physical Space / Autism Linked to Exposure to Pesticides, Viruses, Household Chemicals / School Calendar 2019-20

When
in such times
as we are in need
of Hope,
let us remember:
Hope
has a place,
a physical space,
and it may be found
in the Human Heart –
in your Heart.

The bounty
of God’s Love
is far greater
than the infinite
and vast Universe.

In the empty fields
of this Life
is fertile soil.
The one who plants
trees,
knowing that he
will never sit in their
shade,
has started to understand
the meaning
of Life.

Let us abandon
ourselves
to the Will
of our Lord.

When
in such times
as we
are in need,
we may come to understand
that our Humankind,
can create such powerful
Love
in helping one another,
as to lift
ourselves
from the
depths of despair.

Such emotion
conveyed by the Heart,
has a physical
presence.
We Children of God
have been Created
with the power
to heal ourselves
and a Spirit
that binds.

In the wink
of an eye,
our Soul is turning
in the depths
of our yearning.

As times change
we evolve,
in dimensions and ways
seen
and unseen.
.

The Time
we have so little of,
can set your
emotions
brightly ablaze.
The Light of Love
can free you.
Do not remain
in the dark
forever.

“If all your Dreams were on fire,
Which one would you save?
When it comes down to the wire
Should I be afraid?

I don’t need the World to be content.
All I’ll ever need is you.
Time alone with you is time well spent.
For me that simple Dream will more than do.”
Don Black

God’s Love is far greater than the infinite and vast Universe.

Life,
like Love,
is a choice.
God has empowered
us
to choose.

In choosing,
remember:
the breath
of our Being
is like
the wind.

And the leaves
of the Trees
are laughing,
laughing with
delight.

Join them.

Goodnight.

New Study:
Autism Linked to Environment

Research links soaring incidence of the mysterious neurological disorder to fetal and infant exposure to pesticides, viruses, household chemicals.

Marla Cone in Scientific American

 California’s sevenfold increase in autism cannot be explained by changes in doctors’ diagnoses and most likely is due to environmental exposures, University of California scientists reported Thursday.

The scientists who authored the new study advocate a nationwide shift in autism research to focus on potential factors in the environment that babies and fetuses are exposed to, including pesticides, viruses and chemicals in household products.

“It’s time to start looking for the environmental culprits responsible for the remarkable increase in the rate of autism in California,” said Irva Hertz-Picciotto, an epidemiology professor at University of California, Davis who led the study.

Throughout the nation, the numbers of autistic children have increased dramatically over the past 15 years. Autistic children have problems communicating and interacting socially; the symptoms usually are evident by the time the child is a toddler.

More than 3,000 new cases of autism were reported in California in 2006, compared with 205 in 1990. In 1990, 6.2 of every 10,000 children born in the state were diagnosed with autism by the age of five, compared with 42.5 in 10,000 born in 2001, according to the study, published in the Journal Epidemiology. The numbers have continued to rise since then.

To nail down the causes, scientists must unravel a mystery: What in the environment has changed since the early 1990s that could account for such an enormous rise in the brain disorder?

For years, many medical officials have suspected that the trend is artificial – due to changes in diagnoses or migration patterns rather than a real rise in the disorder.

But the new study concludes that those factors cannot explain most of the increase in autism.

Hertz-Picciotto and Lora Delwiche of the UC Davis Department of Public Health Sciences analyzed 17 years of state data that tracks developmental disabilities, and used birth records and Census Bureau data to calculate the rate of autism and age of diagnosis.

The results: Migration to the state had no effect. And changes in how and when doctors diagnose the disorder and when state officials report it can explain less than half of the increase.

Dr. Bernard Weiss, a professor of environmental medicine and pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center who was not involved in the new research, said the autism rate reported in the study “seems astonishing.” He agreed that environmental causes should be getting more attention.
