Let’s Love Life / CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF MICROWAVE COOKING / Friday: Texas Civil War Museum

Let’s Love Life.

And live a Life
that places the affective domain,
our feelings, emotions, attitudes,
motivations, and appreciation,
far above the cognitive.

Stop
thinking with your Brain!
And let your
Heart
guide your Life.

“The choice you face constantly
is whether you are taking your hurts
to your head or to your Heart.
In your head you can analyze them,
find their causes and consequences,
and coin words to speak and write about them.
But no final healing is likely to come from that source.
You need to let your wounds go down into your Heart.
Then you can live them through and discover
that they will not destroy you.
Your Heart
is greater than your wounds.”

– Henri Nouwen,
“The Inner Voice of Love”

That we think is the problem
so much of the time.

Many studies have shown
that while trying to control the world with our mind
we cause even more anxiety.

We need to trust more
in the healing power of our
Hearts.

My Dear Friends,
Life
is simply too short
not to be happy.
In fact,
being happy
is the only goal
one should have
in this brief existence.
Everything else,
our problems, worries and fears,
dissolve or resolve
when this goal is
accomplished.

“Judge not,
that you be not judged.”
– Matthew 7: 1-2

With judgment
you pronounce you will be judged,
and with the measure you use
it will be measured to you.

Let’s try
to eliminate the obstacles
that lead us to
Joy.
These include highly linear thinking,
excessive expectations,
judging everything and everyone,
and focusing on the negative.
These simplistic things
have resulted in horrendous
outcomes:

Suicides and drug overdoses pushed up
deaths in the United States last year
and caused a continuing decline
in how long Americans
are expected to live.

“These sobering statistics are a wake-up call
that we are losing too many Americans,
too early and too often,
to conditions that are
PREVENTABLE
,
according to Dr. Robert Redfield of the CDC.

The suicide death rate last year was
the highest it’s been in at least 50 years.
There were more than 47,000 suicides
in this country,
up from under 45,000 the year before.

 These latest numbers
were just released
on November 29.

Our Country is in the longest period
of a declining life expectancy since the late 1910’s,
when World War I and the worst flu pandemic
in modern history combined
to kill nearly 1 million Americans.

“We’ve never really seen anything like this,”
according to Robert Anderson of the CDC.

Perfectionism
kills more people on this planet
than you would ever
imagine –
over a million EVERY year.
Many of these precious people
were very young.

Human Beings
are fragile.
Especially
our Children.

They should be treated
as such.
They are far too precious
to be treated in the harsh, linear
and overly strict manner
our schools have
devolve into.

   They are far too precious.

NOTHING
that can be learned
is worth the price
of losing your Child’s
precious personality,
innate motivation,
and Love of Life.

Folks,
this is YOUR country.
This is YOUR Life.
And this is YOUR
Child.

The most important factor
for the happiness of your children
will be
YOUR attitude toward
Life.

The Life of a Child
will reflect
everything
in your Life.

If
you project
a relaxed, jovial, amiable
humorous
and fun LOVING
way of living,
your child will be
excited
about Life and Love,
and about
being with YOU!

We SIMPLY must stop creating
learning and home environments
that have such high expectations,
that Life becomes
miserable
and no longer
what we look forward to.

As the most intelligent Man
of his generation,
Ben Franklin,
famously said,
Moderation in ALL things,
including moderation.”

Hey,
he lived to be
an old man.

By the way,
he invented many things.
One of these
he is never really recognized for:
it is called
the
United States of America.

The greatest Gift
is the knowledge
that we are
NOT
perfect.

Thank God!

I advise students
to make at least ONE
mistake –
on purpose,
every day.
That way,
they can take credit
for it,
and have some FUN.

Relax.

Enjoy your little one’s
brief childhood.
It will be over
before
you wake up.

Do
whatever makes your child
Happy.
Then,
and ONLY then,
slip the learning in
under the rug.
And make sure
it is always followed
with a BIG hug.

Don’t be
in the presence
of your children
without a smile.

Laugh
at your precious child’s mistakes.
And then,
talk about your own.
(tell the truth)
You are both
Human.

Life,
is a Treasure Trove
of Joy.
Or
it is nothing
at all.

And have another
Happy Thanksgiving.
Have one every day
for the rest of your
Life.
We have much
to give thanks
for.

Goodnight.

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF
MICROWAVE COOKING

from Curezone.org

Creation of a “binding effect” to radioactivity in the atmosphere, causes a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;

Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];

Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];

Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];

Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas – cell tumors such as sarcoma];

Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;

Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;

Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,

In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

Forensic Research Conclusions

From the above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence.

Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body, which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.

The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.

Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing”, has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems.
Not surprisingly, the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers.

MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

Microwave radiation is odorless and invisible and therefore hard to detect.

Microwave oven radiation is present whenever a microwave oven is turned on.

The microwave energy causes the water molecules in the food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food. It can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health. Once you turn off the oven, the microwaves disappear but until then, you may be exposing yourself to dangerous levels of radiation leakage.

Do Microwaves Leak?

A survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA. More often than not, a simple adjustment was all that was needed to stop the leakage.

What Causes Microwave Ovens To Leak?

Slamming the oven door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges.

To Whom Do We Belong? / What Really Causes Heart Disease / Friday: T. B. A.

Do not
conform to the pattern of this World,

but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind.

– Romans 12:2 

I will spread God’s Love to all I know and serve.

To whom
do we belong?

In our Creator’s Love for us
were we made,

longing for belonging,
seeking after the one
to whom we truly belong.

God
breathed Life into Humankind.
Yes,
 Adam and Eve’s lungs were filled
with God’s own Being,
His very Breath.

My Dear Friends,
knowing

to whom we belong
goes a long way 

in helping us figure out
who we are.

There is a central question
of Life.

Do we belong to
this World,
filled with vain promises,
illusions of grandeur,
and inescapable loss of Life
and everything material
that accompanies it?

Or
do we belong
to God?

“All the lonely people,
where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
where do they all
belong?”

The Beatles

The Spiritual Awareness
that we
do not belong to others,
or even to ourselves,
but that in Life,
or in death,
we belong to God,
can lead to

a truly authentic and fulfilling
Life,
a Life worth Living.

 To see myself as I truly am,
becomes a vision
into the very Heart of Being.
It enables us
to find belonging,
and to discover
Truth and Joy.

“It is the condition of Love,
that as soon as one sees oneself
as Loved,
one starts Loving.”
– St Catherine of Siena

We have to belong
somewhere,
or to someone.
And,
if we really belong
to God,
then we are truly fashioned
in God’s Image.

As we absorb
the Beautiful Knowledge
of our relationship with our Creator,
we outgrow the small things
that clutter our Lives,
and we begin the Blessed Journey
toward the greater,

magnificent, wider World.

Psalm 100:3
reminds us that we belong to God.
The English Bible states:
“Know that the LORD is God –
He made us; we belong to Him.”
The Hebrew original of the last phrase
can be literally translated,
“we are His.”

My Dear Friends,
it is vital to know

the Spirit of God
dwells in
you.

“What gives meaning to Life?”

With a new understanding
of
to whom we belong,
meaning can be made
manifest.

We must know
to whom we belong.
Until we know,
we can never discover
inner Peace.

Understanding ourselves
and our relation to God,
will lead us to 
a fulfilling Life.
Belonging to God
is the most we could ever ask
in Life.

Life
is a Beautiful demonstration
of God’s Wisdom and Knowledge,
a very vivid reflection
of His Art and Love.
And when
we serve and keep this
wonderfully diverse and Beautiful world,
we Honor the Creator
to whom it all belongs.

“We belong to God
by surrender and dedication.”
Rom 12:1

To God We Belong
and
To Him We Return.

Goodnight.

“Living in this world with change all around
But with the prophets’ words,
I’ll stand on solid ground.
Even though it’s still hard,
with questions that arise,
Every day I will say:
‘ll have Faith like brother Joseph
and the strength of the pioneers.
I’ll be brave as a strippling warrior
and like Nephi persevere.
I will spread God’s Love to all I know and serve.
I will plead with my Father on my knees:
I will be
what I Believe.”
– Blake Gillette

What Really Causes Heart Disease
by Dr. Dwight Lundell
who is the past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital , Mesa , AZ. His private practice, Cardiac Care Center was in Mesa, AZ. Recently Dr. Lundell left surgery to focus on the nutritional treatment of heart disease. He is the founder of Healthy Humans Foundation that promotes human health with a focus on helping large corporations promote wellness. He is also the author of

The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.

click here to read more

The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have per-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated – it is quite simply your body’s natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body?  Well, smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

“Heaven and God are not high above us,
far away;
they are deep within us.
Heaven is not a distant country
where there are trees and houses and other objects;
it is a plane of consciousness within us.
Seekers of the eternal Truth
will realize their eternal Heaven
within their aspiring Hearts.”

For Love Alone / Fruits for Diabetes Patients / Friday: No School (Holiday)

We all share
a Beautiful Light.

It glows
soft as candle Light.
And,
it exists
for Love Alone.

It can never
be seen,
only felt.

“We have seen His Glory,
the Glory of the One and Only…
In Him was Life,
and Life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness,
but the darkness
has not understood it”
John 1:14 a,4,5

To find answers to our questions
of meaning,

the meaning of this Life,
we are compelled to venture forth
on an exploration of consciousness,
a Philosophical journey

into the mind of the
Heart.

A Love story within a Love story.

Each of us
longs to abandon the Life
we seemingly have led for years,
to embark upon an enthralling
adventure
that few have known –
an adventure that will take us
on a Journey
to the very Heart
of ourselves.

All the while,
we have unknowingly lived
in a Beautifully crafted,

well acted Love story,
within a Love story.
This tale
is of the pursuit of Love

and a passion to truly live this Life,
against all odds.
This story,
is our story,
enfolded within
the Beautiful Story
of God’s Love
for us.

                    Unknowingly.

My Dear Friends,
we are able
to transform the pain of Life
into ecstatic Beauty.
Pain is easy to portray,
but we can use our passion for Living,
and our longing for Love,
to ease our pain,
to portray the ecstasy and the Joy
and the magnificence of our World.

Only when you are lost
can you truly find yourself.

And if you keep looking,
you will find yourself,
in the Love you encounter
through the eyes of
another.

Inevitably we ask,
what should be done

with all the time that lies ahead of us,
open and unsure and unshaped?

Our existential journey
can find us venturing forth
into the great unknown
of the Human Heart
that beats within,
but for another.

               Beautifully crafted.

The way in which we Humans
move in and out of one another’s Lives,
has an unknown and profound effect.
Very much like moments
when the Sundown
pales the sky,
and there’s barely a breath of Life
left in this day.

Yes,
as a thing of Beauty
moves in and out
of our Lives,
the effect can be
profound.

Life is a succession of moments,
when we can discover
all the Beauty
that daily comes and goes.
And,
in discovering this Beauty
in the people all around us,
and in the Beautiful World
that surrounds us,
we come to know
who we are,
and what we really want.

“For the beauty of the Earth,
For the beauty of the skies
For the Love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.

For the beauty of the hour
Of the day and of the night
Hill and vale and tree and flower
Sun and moon and stars of light.

Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our Joyful hymn of Praise
For the Joy of Human Love
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on earth and friends above
For all gentle thoughts and mild
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our Joyful Hymn of Praise
For each perfect Gift of Thine
To our race so freely given
Graces Human and Divine
Flowers of Earth
and buds of Heaven.”
Folliott S. Pierpoint

We can experience
a true feeling of Peace,
that persists even in the reality of our troubles,
that transforms our quiet desperation
into a Beautiful calmness.

Let us thank God
for Life,
and for bringing
the Beauty of Love
into it.
Let us Pray for everyone –
that we may see
the Light of their precious lives
and all the Beauty
that dwells within.

May your dreams become reality,
and may your Life be filled
with God.

Goodnight.

“THE GREATEST WORKS OF ART OF ALL,

Fruits for Diabetes Patients

click here for more

Kiwi – Kiwi fruit is one of the most nutritious fruit with low glycemic index value ranges from 47 to 58. It is high in fiber and low in carbohydrates, which aids in controlling blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol. It is a good source of many essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, fiber ,potassium, folates and high amounts of beta-carotene that offer protection from free radicals and improve overall health.

Pears – Pears are one of the best fruit choice for people who have Type 2 diabetes because pears are rich in fiber and low in carbohydrates and calories and have a rating of 38 on the glycemic index value.

Oranges – Oranges are a popular fruit because of their natural sweetness and numerous health benefits. They are low in calories and rich in fiber, vitamin C, thiamin, folate and potassium. Despite their sugar content, oranges have a low glycemic index, ranging from 31 to 51. The low glycemic index is explained by the fact that oranges are rich in polyphenols and fiber, which moderate the rise in blood sugar.

Strawberries – Strawberries are considered as one of the best superfoods for a diabetes meal plan because of its vitamins, antioxidants, dietary fiber, and lower sugar content. Several Studies show that eating strawberries in quantities of at least 2–3 servings per week can lower the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Strawberries are high in vitamin C and fibre, and low in carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index at 40.

Avocado – Avocados are low in carbohydrates which means they have little effect on blood sugar levels and rich in fiber, fats and calories. The fats mostly found in avocado are monounsaturated fats, the heart-healthy kind that can keep your blood cholesterol levels under control, and improve heart health. With so few carbohydrates, a high fiber content, and healthful fat, people with diabetes can enjoy an avocado in moderation without the stress of raising their blood sugar levels. One medium-sized avocado daily is good for diabetics.

Grapefruit – Grapefruit is one of the nutritious fruit choice for diabetics because it is high in soluble fiber, vitamins A, vitamin C and low in calories and has a low glycemic index at 25. It also contains flavonoid naringenin that helps diabetics to increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin and helps in losing extra fat from the body and maintain a healthy weight, which is a vital part of diabetes treatment.

Guava – Guava is a highly nutritious fruit choice for diabetes patients because it has a very high amounts of lycopene, dietary fiber and also rich in potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and magnesium. Its fruit and tea of its leaves both are beneficial for diabetes patients as many research confirms that eating guava fruit without its skin can reduce the sugar absorption in your blood.

Black Plums – Black plums also known as Jambul or Jamun is the miracle fruit for diabetics. It has low glycemic index, which keeps the blood sugar levels normal. Soluble fibre in plums helps the stomach to empty at a slower rate, which affects blood sugar levels and has a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity. The fruit helps to convert starch into energy and keep your blood sugar levels in check. It can also cure the symptoms of diabetes including excess urination and thirst. The extract of bark, seeds, and leaves are too beneficial in the treatment of diabetes.

Cherries – Cherries have a lowest glycemic index at 22 and don’t cause spikes in blood sugar levels. This makes cherries as one of the best fruit choice for diabetics. It also contain chemicals that boost insulin, which helps control blood sugar levels. The chemicals are called anthocyanins.

Apples – Apples are an excellent fruit to include in your diet if you have diabetes. The flesh and skin of apples are high in soluble fiber, vitamin C and other antioxidants. Fiber slows down the digestion and absorption of carbs, causing them to not spike your blood sugar rapidly.

A Prelude to Infinity / Remembering Margarete Pross / Friday: Fossil Mania

“Sparks electric only strike
on Souls electrical alike.
The flash of intellect expires,
unless it meet
congenial fires.”
Hannah Moor

Oh,
precious Earth made Child.
We were given feet of clay,
and Wings.

Our Lives
are
a prelude to
Infinity,
our roots
in the Heavens,
not
underground.
Profound Revelations
guide us
to the Source of all
Beauty.

        Profound Revelations guide us.

And when,
My Dear Friend,
does this Life
end?

No.
Not when your
Heart of clay
ceases to beat.
It stops
when Hearts fail
to comprehend
the Love and Compassion
that dwells
within.

We all possess
a longing
for the unknown.

Yes,
the Immensity and Beauty
of the Universe
is Our Home,
and it is
little known.

“Among all the realities of the invisible world,
mediated to us by the disclosures and promises of God,
and to which our Faith responds,
there is none that more strongly calls into action
this faculty for grasping the unseen
than the Divine pronouncement through the Gospel,
that, though sinners,
we are Righteous in the judgment of God.
That is not only the invisible,
it seems the impossible;
it is the paradox of all paradoxes;
it requires a unique energy of Believing;
it is the supreme victory of Faith
over the apparent reality of things;
it credits God with calling the things that are not
as though they were;
it penetrates more deeply into the Deity of God
than any other act
of Faith.”
Geerhardus Vos,
Grace and Glory: Sermons Preached
in the Chapel of Princeton Theological Seminary

     Our Home is little known.

Buried deep
within our will to be,
is a Promise,
a Sacred Promise of God Almighty,
to Forgive
and to heal,
and always be.

We weavers
of Dreams,
and other things,
possess
the unexplainable feeling of longing
for a time and place,
we do not know.

And this,
My Precious Friend,
can be a sign
of recognizing
the identity of the Soul.
To envision a picture of a certain place,
unknown in time and space,
may trigger the Soul
to feel a great longing,
a feeling like
we have been there
before.

And
who knows?
The waves of Oceans deep
land upon every
shore,
like the Love
of God
that seeks a way
into every
Heart.

George Matheson

“I give thee back the Life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.
O Light that foll’west all my way,
I yield my flick’ring torch to thee;
My Heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my Heart to thee;
I trace the Rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.”
George Matheson

Oh Lord,
grant that our Lives
restore
the borrowed Day,
the Sacred Gift
of
Celestial Love,
the precious Life
given
from Above.

Goodnight.

Remembering Margarete Pross

Once upon a time,
a couple of college friends and I invited
our dear friend and teacher, Mrs. Margarete Pross,
to join us for an evening of music
with John Gary at Hardin-Simmons University.
.
What a magical evening it was.
And later, she cried at the thought that her students
would care enough to
include her in our plans.
.
Those tears still flow though our Hearts,
down though time, and into the lives we
live today.
.
She shared the tragedy of her Life –
of how her husband, holder of both a law
degree and a Ph.D. and Chair of the Department
of Speech at a nearby University, died suddenly.
She felt that without his presence at the school,
she was unfairly dismissed
from her teaching position at this University.
.
Now it was evident that she was fending for herself,
in a very real struggle to merely
survive.
Mrs. Pross was teaching Speech,
along with the Joy of Living,
at a small junior college in, of all places,
Ranger, Texas,
when our group came to pick her up for
the John Gary concert
at her home.
.
As she wiped away tears from eyes
that were always
filled with such compassion for her students,
I looked around at the very humble
surroundings she lived in.
I was mortified at the so-called apartment
she merely existed in.
And I thought privately, how can such circumstance toss
such a Beautiful Human Being
into this.
.
The place made her three students want only to quickly leave.
It was at this time that we decided to assist her in finding
decent living accommodations.
We succeeded in finding a nice
garage apartment for her,
and we included her in our lives,
as much as we could.
.
We finally departed that evening for Abilene
to truly enjoy
a night of music with John Gary in concert,
a great steak dinner,
and as many one liners and jokes as she could endure.
What we created was a great friendship
that lasted many years.
And it began with that evening.
.
Such is the way with the quiet lives we live.
So many teachers,
so many tears, so many lonely evenings,
when it looks as though
no one cares.
All of her students felt, deep in our hearts,
that
this Lady cared deeply for us,
and she made us care
a great deal more than we thought we could.
We learned from her that
much of what we do,
in small ways for others,
really matters.
It creates Joy,
keeps us alive,
and makes our brief Lives
worth living.
.
And in sharing a little of your time and yourself,
you discover
that your life is richer.
You find that Life is more than just living
you discover that
Love is everywhere
and in everyone
and, to your surprise,
in YOU.
.
And that you have plenty
to share –
that
your Cup runneth over,
with Love.
.
So,
in this moment,
before your Life ceases
to stir the endless sea of Time,
while tears of remembrance can still flow over you,
tell the teacher that held you in her Heart
how much it mattered
that someone cared,
when it seemed, perhaps,
that no one else
would.
.
Take her by the hand,
waltz her out the door,
and share a moment of gratitude
for all the Love that still abides
with you.
.
Life
is like a string of pearls,
consisting of brief moments
of Joy.

And few of them!

Goodnight.
.

W. Somerset Maugham “The secret to Life
is meaningless,
unless you discover it
yourself.”

W. Somerset Maugham,
Of Human Bondage

As The Years Pass By / Drinks that Will Relax Your Nerves / Important Dates

“O Lord,
Thy Spirit’s Aid impart,
And fill me with Devotion’s Fire;
Create anew my waiting Heart,
And Heavenly breathings there inspire;
Bid Heart and flesh cry out for Thee,
And Thou my
Joyful
portion be!”

William Gadsby

The reflections of our Creator.

So comforting,
the flow of knowing
Words
that once were mine,
are yours.

Held forever,
the Sacred Divine.
A Prayer.

Who gives the Divine Gift,
to forgive
and forget the wrong
that is done?
And thus
it is undone,
and long ago
forgotten.

My Friends,
there is
a Truth in
your eyes,
when your smile
speaks
to the Heart
of someone in need.

The silence of
knowing
that Love abides,
enters the Heart,
and there
it thrives.

“So we stood
hand in hand,

like two Children,
and there was Peace in our Hearts
for all the dark things
that surrounded us.”
Arthur Conan Doyle

                Peace in our Hearts

Humankind
is the Crown
of all Creation,
the materialized Dream,
the Vision seen,
brought to Light and Life,
by God
in a Dream.

Every footnote
of our mysterious Human History,
written or unseen,
focused upon a plane
of illusion.
For we refused to see
the reflections of
our Creator
in you and me.

We were
many layers of knowledge
away
from envisioning
Today.

No one
could have even imagined
the computer age,
the bizarre and unnatural
implications of Quantum Mechanics,
or genetic engineering
leading to Biological Immortality.

Elizabeth Blackburn
is a renowned Biologist.
She was awarded the Nobel Prize
in Physiology or Medicine in 2009
for the discovery of how chromosomes
are protected by Telomeres
and the enzyme Telomerase.

She is currently the President
of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

Telomeres
are deeply engaged in our lifetime.
As we Humans age,
Telomeres shorten, which leads to aging.
The Telomere is influenced by Telomerase.
Please take note:
Artificially nudging up Telomerase
could increase the risks of cancers.
So what are we supposed to do?

Don’t worry.
We can control Telomerase
by our mind and lifestyle.

“Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace, deep peace.

Deep peace of the sleeping stones to you.
Deep peace of the wandering wind to you.
Deep peace of the flock of stars to you.
Deep peace, deep peace.

Pure red of the whirling flame to you.
Pure white of the silver moon to you.
Pure green of the emerald grass to you.
Deep peace, deep peace.”

The material World,
is always dreaming
of another wonderland
of Love.

Possessing the Spirit of a Child.

My Dear Parents,
as we cradle
our precious Child
in arms warm
and inviting,
and look into
the only eyes
that ever truly will see
what will be,
we are separated
by a common destiny,
as our Sacred Children
one day will look back
at you and me,
and this wondrous
moment.

Possessing the Spirit
of a Child
is an indispensable condition
for entrance into the Kingdom
of God,
not Earthly possessions
or Worldly greatness,
but the simplicity,
naturalness,
the upward look of tenderness
in the
Life of a Child,
the Child Spirit.

The nature of a Child
is revelation
of the Divine Nature.

“Verily I say unto you,
except ye be converted,
and become as little Children,
ye shall not enter into
the Kingdom of Heaven.”
Matthew 18:3

As we seek
answers
to questions unseen,
look to the tender,
hitherto unseen,
the one
who held your hand
as you presumed
to lead,
but who showed you
the way.
Yes,
the Child
of your many
Dreams.
.

  A testament to the Heart
is anchored in
God’s Eternal Love.

Goodnight.

According to studies, relaxing has phenomenal health benefits. These include reducing stress, insomnia and also discouraging the development of cancer and heart diseases. These benefits aside, it is just a good thing to relax. Urmet Seepter discusses some of the natural drinks that you can take to calm your nerves and relax.

 Drinks that Will Relax Your Nerves

By

1. Pure Coconut Water

Although coconut water has been associated more with its energy-boosting capabilities, it can also help you sleep better. It is an excellent source of magnesium and potassium, the two ingredients that helps muscles relax. Potassium and magnesium also regulate digestion and improve blood circulation. A small cup of coconut water is richer in potassium than 2 bananas. Also, coconut water is rich in B vitamins that help reduce stress and can also lessen the risks of lower blood pressure and heart attack. It is one of the best remedies you can drink to calm your nerves naturally.

2. Warm Or Hot Milk

Hot or even warm milk is great for a person who feels that his nerves are shot and they want to fall asleep. Milk contains an amino acid known as tryptophan and this is what helps you calm your nerves. If you want sweet antioxidant boost, mix it with a little honey. Next time you are unable to calm your nerves, just drink warm or hot milk. It can work wonders.

3. Tart Cherry Juice

According to studies, drinking tart cherry juice has overwhelming benefits to your body. Some of its advantages include reducing inflammation associated with arthritis and heart disease, encouraging normal levels of uric acid (this can ease gout), lowering blood cholesterol, encouraging healthy joints and improving muscle recovery.

It also has great sleep advantages in addition to promoting a lovely skin. It is common to see some of the best athletes take this drink in the middle of their performances. You may not be a world-beating athlete but if you include this drink in your daily regimen, it will do you good especially with relaxing.

4. Herbal Teas

There are many herbal teas that can help your anxiety.
However, it is important that whatever tea you choose to take, it should not contain caffeine. Below are the common herbal teas that you can drink to calm your nerves.

  • Kava. This is by far the best known herbal tea for dealing with anxiety. Many times, its effects are likened to those of Buspar, a common anxiety drug, and it appears to possess all the traits of a herbal remedy. This includes being non-addictive, completely natural as well as the fact that it can be consumed whenever needed. However, it is instructive to take note of a few things regarding kava tea. Firstly, the kava tea bought at your local grocery store is not good enough to relax you. While the basic teas provide only 30-50 kavalactones, you need up to 300 or more for you to see any calming effects. The trick is to find a purer herbal tea, such as those that are normally stocked in tea shops. Also, it is advisable to mix it with a drink that contains fats, like coconut milk or butter.Another thing is that kava is very strong and is likely to interact with certain medications. Also, never take it with alcohol. If you have liver disease, kava tea is not for you. NB! This drink must not be taken without a doctor’s nod.
    .
  • Passionflower Tea. Passionflower tea works similar to kava. However, it is not strong the way kava is but has lots of benefits. It offers great calming effects the same way kava does but it does not have the side effects associated with kava.
    .
  • Valerian Root Tea. This type of herbal tea is not necessarily designed for anxiety. However, it still has the calming effects that can soothe anxiety symptoms. Traditionally, valerian tea was used to aid people in sleeping. Many people who suffer from insomnia use valerian root tea to help them catch a few winks of sleep.

5. Oat Straw

Oat straw may be good for you if you want something to drink to calm your nerves. It is a well known remedy that has been used over the years to cure exhaustion and depression. However, this is not a magic drink that will relieve you of your anxiety in an instant. It must be taken for some time, like a month, for it to have calming effects on you. You can find it in stores that sell natural remedies and herbs.

6. Green Tea

Green tea has many health benefits, and one of these is stress relief. The reason for its stress relief is mainly because of theanine it contains, an important calming agent. Like the herbal teas above, it is important that you drink decaffeinated green tea. Caffeine is in fact a stimulant and cannot produce the calming effects that you need.

7. Honey-Infused Drinks

If, for some reason, you cannot use herbal teas, just take any of the drinks mentioned above and infuse them with honey for roughly two weeks. When you feel ready to drink a cup, just mix a table spoon of honey or tea mixture into hot water, hot milk or coconut water and drink it up. It will calm your nerves and help you relax.

Relaxing is important for a healthy person. However, the busy lifestyles that most of us find ourselves in today deprive us of time to relax. But the good news is that there are indeed natural drinks that you can take to calm your nerves.

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
just between 1999 and 2014,
according to the CDC.

“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.

Somewhere in Time We Stand Still / Drinking Water Purity / Friday: Half Price Books and Movie – Hidden Figures

lake-and-sky

    Remembering all the Beauty

A River
of Precious Memories
flows through our Hearts.
And we are kept adrift
by a gentle breeze
of Love,
that fills the Sails
of Time.

But somewhere
time will
stand still,
while waters
of the River of Life
continue to fill our days
and ebb and flow
reaching high tide
to renew our ways.

“He who believes in Me,
 ‘From his innermost Being
 will flow rivers
of living water.'”
John 7:38

Such beautiful memories,
lovely and peaceful
like the flowing melody
of Sacred trickling water,
express what words
cannot say,
as they lift our Spirits
toward the Heaven
of a new Day.

  The Heaven of a new Day.

“Blessed are those
who can give
without remembering

and take
without forgetting.”
– Elizabeth Bibesco

My Dear Friends,
in beholding
the Magnificence and Grandeur
of our Sacred Reflections,
our cherished moments
frozen in fragments of time,
we are awe-inspired
by what is left,
what, in our mind, survives,
in remembering all the Beauty
that has surrounded
our lives.

river-and-sky-b

Lovely and peaceful, like a flowing melody.

How humble and thankful
we should be,
that we are so
deeply Loved,
we were never blinded
by what we
could not see.

The Light
of awareness
is the dawn
of rebirth.

Rebirth and Renewal
encompass us all the time.
It is in every aspect of our Being
and in everything that surrounds us.

In the Natural World,
it is the Natural Order
of things.
It reminds us
of our strength, our resilience,
our rebirth,
so that we can survive
the storms of our Life
and
Blossom once again.

“Those who have seen
the darkest of nights

truly appreciate
the full Glory of Dawn.”

Lydia Dawn

There comes a time
when reflective thought
leads us to know,
that the deep regrets of the past
become totally irrelevant
to Tomorrow –
when you allow
the Holy Spirit
to replace regret
with Reverence.

“Love will abide,
take things in stride.

Sounds like good advice
but there’s no one at my side.

And time washes clean
love’s wounds unseen.

That’s what someone told me,
but I don’t know what it means.”
– Gary B. White

         The Dawn of Life itself.

Tomorrow
is not just the first day
of the rest of your Life,
it is the Dawn
of Life itself,
the Moment of Rebirth
and the death
of darkness.

My Friends,
we can never be found
in the darkness
we endure,
only in the Light
we search for.

“Ring the bells that still can ring. cohen-b
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack,
a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.
– Leonard Cohen

Taker and giver,
accuser and transgressor,
now and not never,
or forever and ever,
the frailties of our Humanity,
can set us
adrift upon a violent sea
of a Life devoid of Love,
deprived
of even
the will to be.

But in the sweet
by-and-by,
Love profuse enough
to fill the Heart’s Treasury,
can find us
adrift upon a lake
of Beautiful Memory.

Old plow horse

    In the Light we search for.

For,
by the very Breath of God,
a gentle breeze fills the Sails
of our yearning,
as we cross over
the great divides of Life,
with the Compass
of His Compassion.

As we traverse
the Earth,
we fly in the sky
at times, it seems,
with unearthly Visions
and Dreams.

sky-pink-and-blue-b

We fly in the sky of unearthly visions and dreams.

Our Earth
is a source of Life,
not a resource.
More than the firmament
beneath our feet,
it is the ground
of our Being,
a Gift from God,
to treasure
and to keep.

And Prayer
is the Pathway
of our own
Spiritual Journey,
leading to inner Peace
and timelessness.
.
The greatest Gift
is
Life itself.

And to be possessed
of Love,
is
to be possessed of Life,
and hear the lovely,
peaceful flowing melody
of everything
God wills for
YOU.

You can feel the Power of Love
in the Hope
that God will hear you
when you turn to Him.

flower-purple-two

The music of your Life
is the Sunshine of your Soul
and expresses what words cannot.
It can lift the essence
of your Being
towards Heaven.

 Great is our Father.
Wonderful are His Creations.

When you look at Life and living
through the lens of Love,
you see astonishing and miraculous things
that reflect the Will of God in you,
in your Heart.
earth-balanced-b

ALL the conditions for everything are just perfect.

We all travel through this Earthly Life
as pilgrims.
 May we have compassion
on all those who travel
with us.
.
Contemplate the deeper reality
that is all the Beauty
that surrounds you.

The fact that all the conditions
for everything are just perfect
for life to exist on our planet,
is nothing short of astounding.
It is
a Beautiful Miracle
of Creation.

And so are
YOU.

Goodnight.

Is the water that you drink and bathe in healthy? If you are on a community water system the US government requires them to publish a CCR (Consumer Confidence Report) or Annual Water Report and make it available to the public. If you get water from a private or shared well, you will need to test your own water.  There are a broad range of solutions for filtering contaminants out of your water so that you and your family can receive the healthiest water possible. The first step is finding out what is in it.

Following is a list of common concerns and filtration strategies for each. Disease due to waterborne contaminants can be transmitted on foods that have been washed in tap water, by breathing in the spray such as in a shower or near a decorative fountain, or by direct consumption. Common contaminants found in the water supplied to indoor environments include but are not limited to: Microbial, Inorganic (includes lead, asbestos), Organic (other than microbial), and Pesticides and Herbicides.

Microbial contaminants include living organisms, such as bacteria, parasites, and algae, as well as viruses (viruses are not considered to be alive because they cannot reproduce without a host cell –your own cells, for example). While waterborne disease are most prevalent in developing countries, the United States and Canada are seeing an increase in the occurrence of waterborne disease associated with viruses and parasites, one prominent example being Legionella bacterium, which can cause a serious pneumonia-like infection. The only home filter systems capable of filtering down to the viral size range are the reverse osmosis or ultra filtration-type membranes, or ceramic filters. It should be noted that activated carbon filters can become a breeding ground for bacteria and hence should never be used on a source of water that is not bacteria free.

Inorganic contaminants are elements not bound to carbon and hydrogen. The term inorganic includes metals (and their alloys, like iron, copper, aluminum, brass, bronze), minerals (such as salt, asbestos, silicates, arsenic, fluoride) and mineral-based chemicals and non-metallic elements, like silicon, phosphorus, arsenic, lead, fluoride, and chlorine. Some metals are necessary trace nutrients for our metabolic biochemistry, but can become toxic in too high a dose, such as Chromium, Copper, and Selenium.  Other metals are toxic only, such as Lead, Arsenic, Beryllium, Cadmium, Thallium, and Mercury, with no known safe level in the body. The best means known to remove inorganic contaminants from water is reverse osmosis.

Organic contaminants are those which have a bond between a carbon atom and a hydrogen atom (CH), and include microorganisms and manmade organic compounds. Many of them are naturally occurring organic chemicals, and innocuous. The organic chemicals we consider water contaminants are man-made, synthetic chemicals such as solvents, petroleum-based chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and PCBs.  Since the 1930’s, production of synthetic organic chemicals has increased almost exponentially, and only a relative handful of them are directly regulated via the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Organic chemicals have been dumped into our surface waters by industrial plants since manufacturing began. This dumping, coupled with the constant runoff of agricultural chemicals into surface waterways, has led to our present situation where almost all fresh water shows some signs of organic pollution. The sole answer for removal of most synthetic organic chemicals is activated charcoal. Probably the best overall scheme for protection is to have a large capacity activated charcoal filter at the point of water entry into the house, with an additional stage of reverse osmosis for drinking and cooking water.

Pesticides and Herbicides are a subset of synthetic organic chemicals that deserve special attention as water contaminants.  Mostly petroleum based, these chemicals started finding widespread use in the 1940’s, and the first warning signs were not evident until the early 1960’s when scientists began to realize that many of these chemicals are very long-lived in the environment, and cause harm to wildlife well beyond their intended targets.  Since these compounds can actually become concentrated in the fat cells of animals from their food sources, they ultimately end up in us too.  For example, even though DDT has been banned for decades, it can still be found in the breast milk of new mothers. These chemicals get into our water from agricultural runoff, spraying on private residential lawns and golf courses, aerial spraying for bug control, and countless other means. The most effective means of removal for pesticides, herbicides, and other synthetic organic chemicals is reverse osmosis. Activated charcoal filters can also be very effective at removing pesticides, but they have limited capacity and need to be maintained diligently.

The World Health Organization states that 80% of infectious diseases worldwide are waterborne. If your tap water has not been filtered by the processes cited here above, you are likely drinking, cooking, washing your food, and bathing with contaminated water. It is worth noting that viruses and single-celled parasites are resistant to extermination by chlorine, itself a contaminant, which is usually the first line of defense in most parts of the United States against microbiological contaminants.
