The Reason We Love Life / Does The Soul Exist? Evidence Says ‘Yes’ / Garlic in Cancer Prevention / Sept. 1 School Begins .

‘Know from whence you came.
If you know
whence you came,
there are absolutely
no limitations
to where you can go.’

James Baldwin

                 We reflect the Joy in our Hearts.

The reason
we Love Life,
is simple
Life
is Love.

LOVE
is the most powerful energy
in existence.
And when we send
this amazing and indefinable
energy
to each other,
we reflect the Joy
in our Hearts.

“To watch us dance
is to hear our Hearts speak”.
Hopi, Native American Tribe, proverb

When
we let the Love of God
flow through our Heart
and out into the World,
we spread the Message
of God’s Love.

Life is a song,
and our Love
is the lyrics.

Love permeates everything.
It is all that Truly is,
and all that ever was,
and all that will ever be.

Love stays with you.
And it changes
the Shoreline of Life
Beautifully,
by the ebb
and flow
of seas,
filled with our tears of Joy
and many memories.

The sounds of Nature blend melodious song to mirror Salvation.

The Beautiful Message of Love
that you share,
is a shining Light.
Your Loving words
enable others to feel
the Love in their Hearts
through the day,
and enables them to see
through the long night.
 Happiness
need not hide,
waiting to be found.

Happiness cannot be found
through great effort and willpower,
but is already here,
right now,

in relaxation and letting go.
Lama Gendun Rinpoche
.
Send a Blessing of Love.
Shower others
with your smiles.
Share the Love
from God
Above.

“Peace begins
with a smile.”
Mother Teresa

Saying,
“I’ll see you later.”
is
engaging the meaning
of the moment –
in the Circle
of Life.

,
“When you Pray
enter into your closet
and when you have shut the door,
Pray to your Father which is in secret
and your Father which is in secret
shall reward you
openly.”
Matthew 6:6

My Friends,
PRAYER
is also an entrance
into the subconscious.
It is
perfect medicine
for our Souls.
.
We
cannot put into words
all the Beauty
that resonates in our
Spiritual Being.
But,
we can give Thanks
for the Journey
of discovery.

We faint and flickering shadows
ever dance
in the Beautiful Light
of Love.

You
are the only one
that can feel
into the depths
of your Sacred Inner Being,
and listen to your Heart
tell the Beautiful Story
of a
World where YOU
can be Happy
and Loved,
and Truly alive
in Peace and Harmony.

Yes.
Life is a song.
Let’s sing it
together.

The Beautiful Message of Love you share is a shining Light.

.Reality,
My Dear Friends,
is projected outward
from
the Heart and mind.
If
you Believe,
it exists.

Our inner psychological state
is projected outward
and gains
physical reality.
This is regardless of the nature
of your psychological state.
This applies to everyone.
And,
you can use this knowledge
for your own benefit.
You can change
your own conditions.

The Bible says,
“Without Faith
it is impossible to please Him [God],

for he who comes to God must Believe
that He is and that He is a rewarder
of those who diligently seek Him”
Hebrews 11:6

If we seek Him,
will we find Him?
Yes.
.
God says,
“You will seek Me and find Me,
when you search for Me
with all your Heart”

Jeremiah 29:13

Yes,
we need to change
the World.
But to change the World
around us,
we must change
OUR World
inside.

“Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect Harmony.
Let peace begin with
me.

Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with
ME.”

Jill Jackson-Miller,
wrote this Beautiful song
after discovering what she called
“Life-saving Joy of God’s Peace
and unconditional Love.”

In the inner Core
of our Souls,
we find Faith.

We cannot doubt
we exist,
because we exist
to doubt.

Do not doubt
that God Loves you.
He Loves you
enough to liberate your mind
to doubt.
He Loves you enough
to let your precious Heart
show you the way
to His Heart.

Be at Peace
My Friend.
God is more real
than we are.

And so is
His Love.

Love that dwells
within your Sacred Heart,
will never lay upon an Altar
of vain repose.
God sets Glorious the setting Sun,
as the sounds of Nature
blend melodious song
to mirror Salvation,
made manifest Majestic
in every Human Heart
that beholds the
Eternal Light
of the Everlasting
Love of God.

Goodnight.


“Oh Heart,
If one should say to you
That the Soul perishes like the body,
Answer that the Flower withers
But the seed remains.”

Biocentrism

Does The Soul Exist?
Evidence Says
Yes

New scientific theory recognizes Life’s Spiritual Dimension.

The reality of the Soul is among the most important questions of life. Although religions go on and on about its existence, how do we know if Souls really exist? A string of new scientific experiments helps answer this ancient spiritual question.
 
Consider the famous two-slit experiment. When you watch a particle go through the holes, it behaves like a bullet, passing through one slit or the other. But if no one observes the particle, it exhibits the behavior of a wave and can pass through both slits at the same time. This and other experiments tell us that unobserved particles exist only as ‘waves of probability’ as the great Nobel laureate Max Born demonstrated in 1926.
.
They’re statistical predictions – nothing but a likely outcome.
Until observed, they have no real existence;
only when the mind sets the scaffolding in place,
can they be thought of as having duration or a position in space. Experiments make it increasingly clear that even
mere knowledge in the experimenter’s mind
is sufficient to convert possibility to reality.
.
Many scientists dismiss the implications of these experiments,
because until recently, this observer-dependent behavior was thought to be confined to the subatomic world. However, this is being challenged by researchers around the world. In fact, a team of physicists (Gerlich et al, Nature Communications 2:263, 2011) showed that quantum weirdness also occurs in the Human-scale world. They studied huge compounds composed of up to 430 atoms, and confirmed that this strange quantum behavior extends into the larger World we live in.
.
.
Importantly,

this has a direct bearing on the question of whether Humans and other living creatures have Souls. As Immanuel Kant pointed out over 200 years ago, everything we experience – including all the colors, sensations and objects we perceive – are nothing but representations in our mind. Space and time are simply the mind’s tools for putting it all together. Now, to the amusement of idealists, scientists are beginning dimly to recognize that those rules make existence itself possible. Indeed, the experiments above suggest that objects only exist with real properties if they are observed. The results not only defy our classical intuition, but suggest that a part of the mind – the Soul – is immortal and exists outside of space and time.

(Immanuel Kant is the central figure in modern philosophy.
He synthesized early modern rationalism and empiricism,
set the terms for nineteenth and twentieth century philosophy,
and continues to exercise a significant influence today in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, and other fields.)

Immanuel Kant

The idea of the Soul is bound up with the idea of a future life and our belief in a continued existence after death. It’s said to be the ultimate animating principle by which we think and feel, but isn’t dependent on the body. Many infer its existence without scientific analysis or reflection. Indeed, the mysteries of birth and death, the play of consciousness during dreams (or after a few martinis), and even the commonest mental operations – such as imagination and memory – suggest the existence of a vital life force – an élan vital – that exists independent of the body.

Yet, the current scientific paradigm doesn’t recognize this spiritual dimension of life. We’re told we’re just the activity of carbon and some proteins; we live awhile and die. And the universe? It too has no meaning. It has all been worked out in the equations – no need for a soul. But biocentrism – a new ‘theory of everything’ – challenges this traditional, materialistic model of reality. In all directions, this outdated paradigm leads to insoluble enigmas, to ideas that are ultimately irrational. But knowledge is the prelude to wisdom, and soon our worldview will catch up with the facts.

Of course, most Spiritual people view the soul as emphatically more definitive than the scientific concept. It’s considered the incorporeal essence of a person, and is said to be immortal and transcendent of material existence. But when scientists speak of the soul (if at all), it’s usually in a materialistic context, or treated as a poetic synonym for the mind. Everything knowable about the “soul” can be learned by studying the functioning of the brain. In their view, neuroscience is the only branch of scientific study relevant to understanding the soul.

Traditionally, science has dismissed the soul as an object of human belief, or reduced it to a psychological concept that shapes our cognition of the observable natural world. The terms “life” and “death” are thus nothing more than the common concepts of “biological life” and “biological death.” The animating principle is simply the laws of chemistry and physics. You (and all the poets and philosophers that ever lived) are just dust orbiting the core of the Milky Way galaxy.

As I sit here in my office surrounded by piles of scientific books, I can’t find a single reference to the soul, or any notion of an immaterial, eternal essence that occupies our being. Indeed, a soul has never been seen under an electron microscope, nor spun in the laboratory in a test tube or ultra-centrifuge. According to these books, nothing appears to survive the human body after death.

While neuroscience has made tremendous progress illuminating the functioning of the brain, why we have a subjective experience remains mysterious. The problem of the soul lies exactly here, in understanding the nature of the self, the “I” in existence that feels and lives life. But this isn’t just a problem for biology and cognitive science, but for the whole of Western natural philosophy itself.

Our current worldview – the world of objectivity and naïve realism – is beginning to show fatal cracks. Of course, this will not surprise many of the philosophers and other readers who, contemplating the works of men such as Plato, Socrates and Kant, and of Buddha and other great spiritual teachers, kept wondering about the relationship between the universe and the mind of man.

Recently, biocentrism and other scientific theories have also started to challenge the old physico-chemical paradigm, and to ask some of the difficult questions about life: Is there a soul? Does anything endure the ravages of time?

Life and consciousness are central to this new view of being, reality and the cosmos. Although the current scientific paradigm is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence, real experiments suggest just the opposite. We think life is just the activity of atoms and particles, which spin around for a while and then dissipate into nothingness. But if we add life to the equation, we can explain some of the major puzzles of modern science, including the uncertainty principle, entanglement, and the fine-tuning of the laws that shape the universe.

“The Hope of another Life”
wrote Will Durant,
“gives us courage to meet our own death,
and to bear with the death of our Loved ones;
we are twice armed if we fight with Faith.

And we are thrice armed
if we fight with science.

Garlic in Prostate Cancer Prevention

click here to read more

Can garlic help prevent and fight prostate cancer, the most common non-skin cancer in America? Several studies suggest garlic and garlic supplements offer protection against cancer, including prostate cancer. These anti-cancer effects are thought to be largely attributable to organosulphur compounds which are produced during the decomposition of allicin. Allicin, in turn, is formed in raw garlic cloves when you crush or chop them.

Additionally, garlic – especially raw garlic – is rich in vitamin C, a nutrient that has been used to prevent and treat prostate cancer.

The rest of this article provides details of recent studies that have been carried out to investigate a possible link between eating garlic and a lowered risk of prostate cancer:

A population-based, case-control study conducted in Shanghai, China, found that men who ate more than 10 grams of Allium vegetables, particularly garlic and scallions, per day were 50% less likely to get prostate cancer than those who ate only a little bit of garlic. The reduced risk of prostate cancer associated with garlic consumption was independent of total caloric intake, body size, and consumption of other foods. This study appeared in the November 2002 edition of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

In another case-control study, a group of researchers from Oxford asked 328 men diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 75 and 328 controls to provide details of their dietary habits. The controls were matched for age. Garlic and garlic supplements, along with a few other foods such as beans and peas, were found to have a protective effect against prostate cancer. This study was published in the renowned British Journal of Cancer in 1997.

However, not all case-control studies support the theory that garlic helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer. A large 2006 study that analyzed dietary data from a number of Italian and Swiss case-control studies found a significant association between high garlic consumption and a reduced risk of several cancers, but not of prostate cancer. The scientists responsible for this study believe that in case of prostate cancer, hormonal factors may play a bigger role in the development of the disease than dietary factors. This study on garlic and cancer was published in the November 2006 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

GarlicThe Bottom Line

Some studies suggest that garlic can indeed help prevent and fight prostate cancer, while other studies imply that garlic does not have a significant protective effect against prostate cancer. However, there are numerous studies that show that a diet rich in garlic is good for your overall health and vitality, and that eating garlic regularly can reduce the risk of several types of cancer including stomach, mouth and throat, kidney, and colorectal cancers. This evidence supports the idea of including garlic in an anti-prostate-cancer diet (or almost any other diet aimed at improving health).

Is Your Electric Blanket Safe?
– Mercola.com

click here to read more

Story at-a-glance

  • Although using an electric blanket during the winter season is a good idea, it can actually emit dangerous electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
  • According to the BioInitiative Report, EMFs can affect gene expression, have genotoxic effects, induce stress response, affect immune function and neurology, impact your melatonin production, and promote certain types of cancers.
  • Electric blankets cause a magnetic field that can penetrate about six to seven inches into your body for hours at a time. Studies have linked electric blanket use to increased cases of miscarriages and childhood leukemia.
  • Instead of using an electric blanket, safer alternatives are using flannel sheets or extra blankets, wearing socks or hats, or using a hot water bottle.

By Dr. Mercola

Winter is upon you if you live in the northern hemisphere, and with this challenging economy you are probably interested in lowering your thermostat and conserving energy while still staying warm

An electric blanket seems like a good idea. You can turn the thermostat down at bedtime and stay comfortable throughout the night.

But the central question is: Are they safe?

It’s true — electric blankets are convenient and cost-effective. But it is important to know that they may also be hazardous to your health.

In addition to the fire danger associated with a defective or an old, worn electric blanket, there is also another health risk to consider — the electromagnetic field you’ll be sleeping under for several hours every night..

What Is an Electromagnetic Field?

An electromagnetic field (EMF) is an invisible zone of energy that surrounds electric devices and wiring. EMFs are actually comprised of two fields:

  • An electric field,
  • A magnetic field

The electric field is created by voltage, which determines the force with which the electricity is pushed through wires. Most electric fields can be shielded by the design of the appliance, or physically, by walls or other barriers.

The magnetic field is created by the current, which is the amount of electricity being pushed. Magnetic fields, which are the main cause of health concerns, can travel through most barriers and for long distances, and are difficult to block.

All electromagnetic energy falls somewhere on the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation to microwaves, x-rays, and gamma rays.

ELF fields are generated by household appliances, including electric blankets, and overhead power lines, which have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, such as leukemia.

The Dangers of Electromagnetic Energy to Your Health

When electricity passes through a wire, it creates an electromagnetic field that exerts force on nearby objects, including animals and humans.

At one time, it was believed that low-level magnetic fields were not harmful, but scientists now agree that ELF fields are indeed hazardous to human health. They are now considered “probable carcinogens,” and have been linked to cases of childhood leukemia, lymphoma, and other health conditions. The exact mechanism by which exposure leads to cancer has not been established. But one potential mechanism may be due to ELFs ability to alter the expression of certain genes; turning them on and off at inappropriate times, which may cause them to initiate cell proliferation.

Additionally, the BioInitiative Report, published by an international working group of scientists, researchers, and public health policy professionals, documents serious scientific concerns about the radiation emitted from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of exposure to radio frequencies and electromagnetic fields in daily life.

It concludes that the existing standards for public safety are completely inadequate to protect your health. The report includes studies showing evidence that electromagnetic fields can:

  • Affect gene and protein expression (Transcriptomic and Proteomic Research)
  • Have genotoxic effects – RFR and ELF DNA damage
  • Induce stress response (Stress Proteins)
  • Affect immune function
  • Affect neurology and behavior
  • Cause childhood cancers (Leukemia)
  • Impact melatonin production; Alzheimer’s disease; breast cancer
  • Promote breast cancer (Melatonin links in laboratory and cell studies)

Why Electric Blankets Are a Bigger Threat Than Other Household Appliances

Researchers have concluded that you should not only be aware of the potential harm of low-level magnetic fields, you should also limit your exposure as much as possible. This is especially true for appliances held close to the body, as would be the case with electric blankets.

The magnetic fields given off by various household appliances diminish sharply the farther you are from the appliance. In the case of electric blankets, however, a study conducted by Dr. Nancy Wertheimer in the mid-1980s demonstrated that the reading at any power level (level 1 all the way up to level 9 or 10) was 10 to 20 mG (milliGauss) next to the blanket, and 5 to 10 mG six inches away from it.

These numbers represent the field strength to which you’re exposed when sleeping under an electric blanket. The current is balanced at the center of the blanket, but unbalanced at the outer edges. It is the imbalance that causes a significant magnetic field to be generated.

While there is heated debate as to what EMF level is considered safe, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG, but many experts believe even this level is too high. As you can see, electric blankets are capable of creating a magnetic field anywhere from five to 20 times higher than the EPA’s proposed safe level of exposure. Meanwhile, many scientists warn that the enforced standards for electromagnetic exposures are too lax, and that the safety standards need to be revised in order to protect human health.

Specific Risks Linked to Electric Blanket EMFs

Electric blankets create a magnetic field that penetrates about six to seven inches into your body — for hours at a time. This qualifies as chronic exposure.

Epidemiological studies have linked electric blankets with miscarriages and childhood leukemia.

Data reported in the American Journal of Epidemiologyii  suggests that regular use of an electric blanket may increase breast cancer risk in some women, and according to a 2007 report published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, using electric blankets was associated with a 15 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer than never having used one. The same study also revealed that the use of electric blankets for 20 years or more was associated with 36 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer.

Other studies have shown that the EMFs generated by electric blankets suppress melatonin production. Melatonin is the most important detox agent for your brain and is also an anti-inflammatory. Electromagnetic radiation can make inflammation worse by creating more potent mycotoxins, so reducing inflammation is vital.

Research included in the BioInitiative Report mentioned above has also found links between melatonin disruption and the promotion of breast cancer.iii

Electric Blankets and Pregnancy

This clearly is not a good idea and something that is easily avoided. The unborn fetus is likely the most susceptible to this type of EMF radiation.

Additionally, if you use an electric blanket during early pregnancy, you may increase the risk of miscarriage.

Studies indicate that women who used an electric blanket around the time of conception and during early pregnancy were nearly twice as likely to have a miscarriage than women who did not.

Is There a ‘Risk Free’ Electric Blanket?

In response to EMF concerns, U.S. electric blanket manufacturers now sell blankets that claim to generate no harmful electromagnetic radiation.

Although these “zero magnetic field” blankets reduce or eliminate magnetic fields, they may still generate electric fields.

In my opinion, even minimal exposure poses an unnecessary risk, especially for children, pregnant women, people who are chronically exposed to EMFs from other sources, and those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS).

Safe Alternatives to Your Electric Blanket

    • Flannel sheets
    • An extra blanket
    • Wear socks, or even a hat, to bed
    • A hot water bottle

If you insist on using an electric blanket, turn it on before bedtime and leave the room while it warms your bed. Before you retire for the night, turn off the blanket and unplug it in order to eliminate EMF exposure.

 In Philosophy Class this week:

Royal Raymond Rife

Royal Raymond Rife, born in 1888, was one of the greatest scientific geniuses of the 20th century. He began researching a cure for cancer in 1920, and by 1932 he had isolated the cancer virus. He learned how to destroy it in laboratory cultures and went on to cure cancer in animals. In 1934, he opened a clinic which successfully cured 16 of 16 cases within three months time. Working with some of the most respected researchers in America along with leading doctors from Southern California, he electronically destroyed the cancer virus in patients, allowing their own immune systems to restore health.

In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a special medical research committee to bring terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital to Rife’s San Diego Laboratory and clinic for treatment. The team included doctors and pathologists assigned to examine the patients – if still alive – in 90 days.

After the 90 days of treatment, the committee concluded that 86.5% of the patients had been completely cured. The treatment was then adjusted and the remaining 13.5% of the patients also responded within the next four weeks. The total recovery rate using Rife’s technology was 100%.

Suppression and Ridicule

But by 1939, almost all of these distinguished doctors and scientists were denying that they had ever met Rife. What happened to make so many brilliant men have complete memory lapses? It seems that news of Rife’s miracles with terminal patients had reached other ears. Remember our hypothetical question at the beginning of this report: What would happen if you discovered a potential cure for everything?

Cancer picks us off quietly. By 1960 the casualties from this tiny virus exceeded the carnage of all the wars America ever fought. In 1989, it was estimated that 40% of us will experience cancer at some time in our lives. In Rife’s lifetime, he had witnessed the progress of civilization from horse-and-buggy travel to jet planes. In that same time, he saw the epidemic of cancer increase from 1 in 24 Americans in 1905 to 1 in 3 in 1971 when he died.

One day, the name of Royal Raymond Rife may ascend to its rightful place as a giant of modern medical science. Until that time, his fabulous technology remains available only to the people who have the interest to seek it out. While perfectly legal for veterinarians to use to save the lives of animals, Rife’s brilliant frequency therapy remains taboo to orthodox mainstream medicine because of the continuing threat it poses to the international pharmaceutical medical monopoly that controls the lives – and deaths – of the vast majority of the people on this planet.

Out of a Very Dark Night / Aspirin – Cancer Link / Friday: Fort Worth Stock Show

Photo Long Before We Met

                    Out of a very dark night.

The Holy Bible is
filled
with stories of God’s Miracles.
But miracles, my Friends,
fill our everyday lives as
the Hand of God
hovers over your Heart.
He waits for you,
to let the Love
in your precious Heart
flow through you and from Him,
and out into the World,
into the very Beautiful Hearts
that abound all around.
Into those in need
of Forgiveness,
in need of someone

Miracles abound
all around.
You
are a miracle,

a Blessed and very precious,
and very Human Being.

The fact that you are alive
is a Miracle!

And the Miracle of your Life
is far beyond amazing.
This wonderful Gift of Life
is what God has truly Blessed us with.

From our Friends at
AllAboutGOD.com:

Could life have evolved randomly?
No!
Not according to
Mathematicians
and other scientists.

Prominent
scientists have attempted
to calculate the odds
that a single-celled organism
could result by the chance combining
of pre-existent building blocks.

Harold Morowitz calculated the odds
as one chance in 10100,000,000,000.

The odds are staggering.

“We are led cent by dollar
from a lowly pile of common materials
to a grand Philosophical conclusion,
the infinite preciousness of every person.”
Harold Joseph Morowitz

The odds led Fred Hoyle to state
that the probability of spontaneous generation
is about the same as the probability
that a tornado sweeping through a junk yard
could assemble a Boeing 747
from the contents.

Mathematicians tell us that any event
with an improbability greater than
one chance in 1050
is in the realm of metaphysics
a Miracle.

“If you go back 10 generations (250 years)
the chance of you being born at all
is at most 1 divided by 6 x 10100 or
1 in 60000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000.
In gambling,
even a chance of 1 to 100 is not worth a gamble.
Are you ever lucky to be alive!”

Morowitz

Physicist Harold Marowitz,
Professor of molecular Biophysics
and Biochemistry at Yale University,
used Physics calculations in concluding,
that it is more likely
you would win the state lottery
every week for a million years
by purchasing just one ticket each week,
than reassembling a single bacterium
by chance.

robert_shapiroRobert Shapiro,
N. Y. University Professor of Chemistry   and DNA expert,
calculated the probability
of the 2,000 types of proteins
in a simple bacterium
coming into existence by chance
is the astronomical figure equivalent to
1 followed by 40,000 zeroes.

“The improbability involved in
generating even one bacterium
is so large that it
reduces all considerations of time and space

to nothingness.”
Robert Shapiro

Hoyle

       Hoyle

Sir Fred Hoyle
was Plumian Professor in Mathematics at Cambridge University
and Director of the Institute
of Theoretical Astronomy.
He compared the probability of Life
arising by chance
to lining up blind people,
giving each one a scrambled Rubik’s Cube and finding that they all solve the cube
at the same moment.

Francis Crick,
molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist,
and winner of the Nobel Prize in Biology
for his work with the DNA molecule, stated:
“An honest man,
armed with all the knowledge available
to us now,
could only state that,
in some sense,

the origin of Life appears at the moment
to be almost a miracle,

so many are the conditions
which would have had to have been satisfied
to get it going.”

How well I remember
finding my precious Mother,
Marie,
lying in her bed,
literally in a pool
of her own blood.
She was rushed
to Baylor Medical Center.

I am in tears
as I share this with you.
They are tears
of Joy
and Thanksgiving.

The Surgeon visited with me
shortly before proceeding with
exploratory surgery.
And he shared with me
a sad truth.
I asked a simple question
and he gave me
the simple truth:
“Is there any Hope?”
No,
he whispered.
“What is the chance
that she can survive?”
None.
And then I searched his eyes
for any sign of Hope
and asked,
“What are her chances?”
He replied with great compassion
in his voice:
There is a one hundred percent
probability
that she will not survive
this night.
We will do what we can.
But, No.
Dr. Anderson, there is
no Hope.
Her condition is such
that she cannot survive
whatever is causing
this very massive loss of blood.
She is dying from cancer.
I’m sorry.

I do not know how,
but I made my way
to the little Chapel
in the Hospital.

And there I cried
and cried and cried.
I begged God
not to take the Life
of this precious Mother.
I Prayed.
And through the tears
I could barely see.
But through the years,
I could clearly see.
What a Blessing
Life can be
when someone Loves you
as much
as she Loved me.

                               In Awesome Wonder

I shared the Love
I had felt though the years
with my Lord.
I expressed my deep gratitude,
over and over again,
for her very precious Life.
I shared the need
to have her with me
a little longer.
I told my God,
“I still need her in my Life.
Please, let me have her
a little longer.”

I was in
so much pain.

And then
my Communion
with the Lord
suddenly ended.
A strange feeling,
a quiet Peace,
came to my Heart.
I never felt anything
like it before.

I looked around
and the good Doctor
was quietly standing behind me.
The look on his face
astonished me.
It shocked me.
I could not understand it.
It was a look
I never expected.
.
Why was he looking
through me
with such an amazement
in his tired eyes?
He was speechless
for a very long time.
He just looked
into my eyes
and looked through me.

After what seemed like
an Eternity,
he spoke
in a hushed and whispered
voice:
.
“I could not find anything wrong.
I think she will be all right now.”
.
I could barely speak.
I thanked him
and he very, very slowly
walked away
into a darkening hallway,
and
I walked out of
a very dark night.

My Mother lived
for another twelve
and one half years.

Yes,
my tears
are of Joy
and Thanksgiving.

My Precious Lord,
How Great Thou Art.

Goodnight.

The Aspirin – Cancer Link

Taking a low-dose aspirin daily is a common prescription for those at high risk for heart attack and stroke. Research within the last few years is pointing to another possible benefit of aspirin.

When taken regularly, it may also help reduce your risk for certain cancers, particularly colon and gastrointestinal cancers. The benefits, however, may still not outweigh the risks. Check with your Doctor.

In 2012, world-renowned aspirin expert Professor Peter Rothwell of Oxford University and colleagues published three studies in The Lancet journal that suggested that if you are middle-aged, taking a low-dose aspirin every day could slash your risk for various cancers in as few as 2 to 3 years! According to Rothwell, taking an aspirin a day may also help to prevent an existing localized cancer from metastasizing (spreading to other parts of the body), a finding that holds promise for current cancer patients who may likewise receive some benefit from supplementing with aspirin.

A study published this year in JAMA Oncology showed that taking a low-dose aspirin every day may lower your risk for colon cancer by 19%, your risk for gastrointestinal cancer by 15% and your overall cancer risk by 3%. The benefits appeared after 6 years of supplementation.

Senior researcher Dr. Andrew Chan, from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston explained: “That makes sense, because cancers don’t typically develop overnight. They take years to develop, so you would have to take aspirin for a long time to prevent cancer.”

According to Chan, aspirin impacts particular biological pathways that can cause cancer. Aspirin also helps to lower inflammation and possibly limit the number of cancer-causing proteins in the body.

The study analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, which followed 130,000 men and women over 30 years. While no link between aspirin and a lower risk for breast, prostate, or lung cancers was found, data did seem to suggest that when aspirin was taken 2 or more times a week it might prevent 17% of colon cancer diagnoses for those not screened with a colonoscopy, and 5-8% of colon cancer cases for those who are.

Our annual Shakespeare theatrical production is under way.
We are proud of George Rodriquez, Director,
as he works diligently with our students in the always difficult task of preparing them for a full evening
presenting the enduring work of
William Shakespeare.

Shakespeare is always challenging,
but we engage our scholars in the difficult study and presentation of his work for several reasons.

First, because it is difficult!
Children need to be challenged. And they need to meet scholarly challenges with guidance, patience and ultimate success. The pride they feel after a successful presentation on stage can be literally felt for the rest of their lives. And it is a pride that can be shared with family and friends. Our children share the pride of their accomplishment and rightfully so. And our pride is seeing them excited about learning and, more importantly, coming to love the beautiful and intoxicating language of Shakespeare is beyond what we can express.

Second, because it is so Beautiful.
The scope of Shakespeare’s work and the depth of his understanding of the human condition and perilous philosophical dilemmas faced by mankind is breathtaking.

Third, because it is necessary.
The difference between a highly educated person and one that is not well-educated is phenomenal. Anyone living in this country who is not familiar with Shakespeare, and other notable playwrights, is in sufferance of a significant disadvantage. Not only will he or she be remedial as a college bound student, but acutely deficient in social situations and professional endeavors.

Fourth, because an understanding of this absolute pillar of western civilization is essential in enabling and empowering our young children. They cannot be prepared to lead this country and their communities and families without an exposure to the essential and fundamental tenants of our history and literature. Where else are they going to gain the insightful wisdom and privileged introduction to ideas so fundamental to forming broad perspectives and balanced judgment. If we, as a civilization, do not allow our children to gain access to the wisdom of the ages, we shall doom the next generation to the narrow minded thinking and painful mistakes of the past. History will surely repeat itself if our historical tolerance of ignorance remains the same and our expectations are always low.

Today is Tomorrow in Yesterday’s Dream / Power Lines, Electrical Devices and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation / Friday: At School – Shakespeare Play Production

Today
is Tomorrow,
in Yesterday’s Dream.

And the Season
of the Heart,
is always
Spring.

Let every precious breath
you take,
be
the very first breath
of Spring.

Yes,
the Time has come.
Wake up
and come alive.

If
you have missed
so many things
to do,
things you have
never done,
always remember that
Time
is in a swirl,
and it will quickly
take from you
what you need,
if you delay.

Our words
can betray much
to each other.
But more dearly
than the spoken word
can tell,
is the Love
in your eyes,
that speaks
more clearly
than words
will ever tell.

My Dear Friends,
to enjoy the pleasures
of this Life,
they must be
simple.

“Life is really simple,
but we insist on making it
complicated.”
Confucius

Simplicity
opens the door
to Beauty
and beyond.

If we only knew how often
simplicity and complexity
are entwined within every second
of our existence,
we would scarcely be able to breathe.
Such is the Beauty of
simplicity.

Within the simplicity
of Joy,
and the manifestation of Love,
is the underlying substance
of all that is
or ever was.

Simplicity
is the door to experiences of sublime importance.
Without simplicity,
they would be beyond our capacity
to understand or comprehend.
Simplicity is the key
to opening the windows
of Heaven
on Earth.

But complexity,
My Dear Friend,
brings chaos
into range.

“Simplicity is
the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Lingering Sunsets
are God’s invitation,
to walk slowly
past the Beautiful Gifts
He
has provided all around:
Flowers that abound,
the Grass
so green
it lends new meaning
to colors that
may be found,
with Trees
like Cathedrals
pointed toward the Sky,
where you and I
may place our
Hearts,
and our bountiful
Dreams.

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old,
you don’t understand it yourself.”  
Albert Einstein

Rainbows
in His Sacred Sky
are there
for you and I
to see a debt
has long been paid.
God’s Promise
was made,
and His Beautiful Language
will linger long
for us to see
beyond
His Love
for you
and me.

It is now the time
to dance with the rhythm
of the falling rain,
and join yourself
with all the Beauty of the Natural World
and receive its
bountiful Blessings
and Gifts.

The curvature
of our cravings
for more and more,
is not
curve-linear,
not round or smooth
or elliptical.
It is
jagged,
defined by violence
and war.

But,
we can do better,
we can do
more.

As the collective Human mind
releases
its desires and cravings,
it releases the hold
it has on you.

“People from the same ethnic group
who live closely
are more likely to instigate and organize each other
to fight rival ethnic groups,
whereas ethnic groups more dispersed within a country
are less likely to lead to intrastate conflict
due to a lack of coordination.”

Geography of Conflict

We
do not war
with
each other.
We war
in prescribed ways –
one geographical accident
of birth,
opposed to another
in geography
that is simply
birthed
in a different location.

“War is an inherently geographical concept:
it is fought across territories,
by territorially-bounded states,
and its outcomes influence the remapping
of that system of states.
Wars create geographies
and geographies create wars.
Colin Flint

My Friends,
bullets
that take the Life
of another,
never
hit the ground.
.
They also
take the precious Lives
of many, many others,
unnamed and unknown.
They kill the Children,
the sons and daughters
of us all,
never to be born.
They destroy
all Hope
for Children of Children of Children –
and on and on and on,
a number reaching into Infinity,
and far, far beyond.

“Whoever saves a single Life
is as if one saves
the entire World.”
Talmud

The cost of war
can never be
measured.
It cannot be
found,
even in the imagination,
or the perplexities
of mathematics
unknown and profound.

The true cost
is an Infinity
of
Infinities.

No
such number
will ever be
found.

“Thou shalt not kill.”
Exodus 20:13

Everyone,
as a Child,

has a beautiful Heart.

Every Day
is a wonderful Gift
and a Blessed day.

Happiness
may come into your Life
today.
And a small happiness
can lead to great Joy
throughout your
Life.

There is Infinite Love
and Hope and Light
in you.

Let the pathway
for others
be
through your Sacred
Heart.
Take someone
by the hand
and help them,
and they
will show you
the way.

Through the Heart
of another
lies
a truly Joyful
day.

Goodnight.

and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation

What is extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation?

Radiation is the emission or sending out of energy from any source. X-rays are an example of radiation, but so is the light that comes from the sun and the heat that is constantly coming off our bodies.

When talking about radiation and cancer, many people think of specific kinds of radiation such as x-rays or the radiation in nuclear reactors. But these are not the only types of radiation that concern us when we think about radiation risks to human health.

Radiation exists across a spectrum from very high-energy (also referred to as high-frequency) radiation to very low-energy (or low-frequency) radiation. This is sometimes referred to as the electromagnetic spectrum.

Examples of high-energy radiation include x-rays and gamma rays. They, as well as some higher energy ultraviolet (UV) rays, are classified as ionizing radiation, which means that they have enough energy to remove an electron from (ionize) an atom. Ionizing radiation can damage the DNA inside cells, which can lead to mutations and the uncontrolled cell growth we know as cancer.

Extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation is at the low-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum and is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation has enough energy to move atoms around or make them vibrate, but not enough to directly damage DNA. ELF radiation has even lower energy than other types of non-ionizing radiation like radiofrequency radiation, visible light, and infrared.

With most types of radiation, the electric and magnetic fields are coupled. Because they act as one, they are considered together as an electromagnetic field (EMF). But with ELF radiation, the magnetic field and the electrical field can exist and act independently, so they are often studied separately. Typically, we use the term “magnetic field” to indicate ELF radiation from a magnetic field, while we use “electric field” to mean ELF radiation from an electric field.

The possible link between electromagnetic fields and cancer has been a subject of controversy for several decades. It’s not clear exactly how electromagnetic fields, a form of low-energy, non-ionizing radiation, can increase cancer risk. Plus, because we are all exposed to different amounts of these fields at different times, the issue has been hard to study.

Electric and magnetic fields

All radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum is produced by the interactions of 2 forces, referred to as fields. Radiation has both an electric field and a magnetic field.

Electric fields are the forces acting on charged particles (parts of atoms), like electrons or protons, which cause them to move. Electric current is simply the flow of electrons produced by an electric field. The strength of an electric field is often expressed as volts per meter (V/m) or, for stronger fields, as kilovolts per meter (kV/m), where a kilovolt is 1000 volts.

magnetic field is created when charged particles are in motion. The strength of a magnetic field can be expressed in many different units, including tesla (T), microtesla (µT or one millionth of a tesla), and gauss (G), where one G equals 100 µT.

How are people exposed to ELF radiation?

Generating, transmitting, distributing, and using electricity all expose people to ELF radiation. Power lines, household wiring, and any device that uses electricity can generate ELF radiation. Thus any electric device, from refrigerators and vacuum cleaners to televisions and computer monitors (when they are on) are sources of ELF radiation. Even electric blankets expose people to ELF radiation.

How much electromagnetic radiation you are exposed to depends on the strength of the electromagnetic field, your distance from the source of the field, and the length of time you are exposed. The highest exposure occurs when the person is very close to a source putting out a strong field and stays there for a long period.

Does ELF radiation cause cancer?

Researchers use 2 main types of studies to try to figure out if something causes cancer.

  • Lab studies: In lab studies, animals are exposed to different levels of the substance (sometimes at extremely high levels) to see if this exposure causes tumors or other health problems. Researchers might also expose normal human cells in a lab dish to see if this causes the types of changes that are seen in cancer cells. It’s not always clear that the results from these types of studies directly apply to humans, but lab studies are a good way to find out if an exposure might possibly cause cancer.
  • Studies in people: Other types of studies look at cancer rates in different groups of people. Such a study might compare the cancer rate in an exposed group to the rate in a group with lower exposures, or to a group not exposed at all. Sometimes the exposed group’s cancer rate is compared to the cancer rate in the general population. But it can be hard to know what the results of these studies mean, because many other factors might affect the results. For example, people are typically exposed to many substances other than the one being studied, and these other exposures could affect the results.

In most cases neither type of study provides conclusive evidence on its own, so researchers usually look at both lab-based and human studies when trying to figure out if something can cause cancer.

Studies in the lab

Several large studies have looked at the possible effects of ELF magnetic fields on cancer in rats and mice. These studies expose the animals to magnetic fields much stronger than what people are normally exposed to at home, with fields ranging from 2 to 5000 microtesla (µT). Most of these studies have found no increase in the risk of any type of cancer. In fact, the risk of some types of cancer was actually lower in the animals exposed to the ELF radiation. One study did show an increased risk of tumors that start in thyroid cells, called C-cells, in male rats at some exposures. This increased risk was not seen in female rats or in mice, and was not seen at the highest field strength. These inconsistencies, and the fact that these findings were not consistently seen in the other studies, make it hard for scientists to conclude that the observed increased risk of tumors is from the ELF radiation.

Other studies in mice and rats have looked specifically for increases in leukemia and lymphoma as a result of exposure to ELF radiation, but these studies have also not found a link.

Studies in people

Studying the effects of ELF radiation in people can be hard, for many reasons:

Exposure to ELF radiation is very common, so it’s not possible to compare people who are exposed with people who aren’t exposed. Instead, studies try to compare people exposed at higher levels with people exposed at lower levels.

It is very hard to determine how much ELF radiation a person has been exposed to, especially over a long period. As far as we know, the effects of ELF radiation do not add up over time, and there is no test that can measure how much exposure a person has had.

Researchers can get a snapshot of ELF exposures by having a person wear a device that records their exposure levels over hours or days. Or, researchers can measure the magnetic or electrical field strength in a person’s home or workplace settings.

Other options include estimating exposure based on the wiring configuration of someone’s workplace/home or on its distance from power lines. But these methods result in exposure estimates that have a lot of uncertainty and that can produce biased estimates of total exposure. They typically do not account for a person’s ELF exposures while in other places, they don’t measure ELF exposures in every location that person has ever lived or worked over their lifetime. As a result, there are no good ways to accurately estimate someone’s long-term exposure, which is what matters most when looking for possible effects on cancer risk.

In children

  • A number of studies have looked at a possible link between ELF radiation from magnetic fields in the home and childhood leukemia, with mixed results. Still, when the findings from these studies are combined, a small increase in risk is seen for children at the highest exposure levels compared to those with the lowest exposure levels. Studies looking at the effect of ELF electric fields on childhood leukemia have not found a link.

Studies have generally not found any strong links between ELF electric or magnetic fields and other types of childhood cancers.

In adults

Although several studies have looked at possible links between ELF exposures in adults and cancer, most have not found a link.

What expert agencies say

Several national and international agencies study different exposures in the environment to determine if they can cause cancer. (Something that causes cancer or helps cancer grow is called a carcinogen.) The American Cancer Society looks to these organizations to evaluate the risks based on evidence from laboratory, animal, and human research studies.

Based on animal and human evidence like the examples above, some expert agencies have evaluated the cancer-causing nature of ELF radiation.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO). One of its major goals is to identify causes of cancer. In 2002, IARC considered the evidence for ELF magnetic and electric fields separately:

  • It found “limited evidence” in humans for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields in relation to childhood leukemia, with “inadequate evidence” in relation to all other cancers. It found “inadequate evidence” for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields based on studies in lab animals.
  • It found “inadequate evidence” for the carcinogenicity of ELF electric fields in humans.

Based on this assessment, IARC has classified ELF magnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” It has classified  ELF electric fields as “not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans.”

In 1999, the US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) described the scientific evidence suggesting that ELF exposure poses a health risk as “weak,” but noted that it cannot be recognized as entirely safe, and considered it to be a “possible” human carcinogen.

How can I avoid exposure to ELF radiation?

It’s not clear that exposure to ELF radiation is harmful, but there are things you can do to lower your exposure if you are concerned. Your exposure is based on the strength of the ELF radiation coming from each source, how close you are to each, and how long you spend in the field.

The NIEHS recommends that people concerned about their exposure to EMF (and ELF radiation) find out where their major EMF sources are and move away from them or limit the time spent near them. For example, moving even an arm’s length away from a source can dramatically lower exposure to its field.

Power lines

People who are concerned about ELF radiation exposure from high-power electrical lines should keep in mind that the intensity of any exposure goes down significantly as you get farther away from the source. On the ground, the strength of the electromagnetic field is highest directly under the power line. As you get farther away, you are exposed to less and less, with the level eventually matching normal home background levels. The electromagnetic field directly under a power line is typically in the range of what you could be exposed to when using certain household appliances.

If you are concerned about your exposure to electromagnetic sources around you (including power lines), you can measure the field strength with a device called a gaussmeter.

How Far Do We Travel? / Eight Things Kids Need To Thrive / Friday: Montgomery Street Antique Mall 

Dedicated
with Love
and Admiration
to my wonderful Friend,
and the best Friend
to everyone he met:

Bob Puryear

Thank You
Bob.

I know of no one
I admire more
than this Beautiful Soul.

You are truly admired.

You Life
is the Language
of God’s Love.

Everyone
appreciates the Beautiful Life and Love
you have dedicated
to the precious Children
of this Earth.

We Love You.

Throughout our Journeys
of Life
and Love,
we wonder
as we wander,
how far
do we travel
to change the Life
we have lived?

May our errors
be quivered
like arrows?

Yes.

With thoughts and deeds,
and words we weave
of nothing
but Love.

My Dear Friends,
our heavy heartaches
and pain,
may now be
blended into
precious cargo.

Our moments of
remembrance
can be molded and shaped
into what it already is,
and what
it was always
meant to be.

We
Children
of an Almighty God,
were created by Love,
to Love.

“Whoever does not Love
does not know God,
because
God is Love.”
1 John 4:8

There is nothing
to fear,
when your Heart
is near,
to Loving thoughts
and deeds
and dreams.
.
The Human Heart
is a vast and deep
Ocean
of wants and desires
and dreams of needs.
But
all
your Heart truly wants
is the Love
that is
you.

It is,
as it was to be,
in Love
with Life.

If
you are hoping
wounds heal,
but they do not,
perhaps
it is because
you are at war
with Love.

And that
is a war
that will never
be won.

The web we weave
of traveled threads
can rend apart.
But,
Hope is Home
to the Heart
set free,
by Love.

Always,
look to Love
as you voyage
and dream.
Give your Love
wings,
and Love will be
as it was meant
to be,
and fly you
Home.

When Hearts speak
louder than words,
Life drifts into
the Dreams we Love,
and Life
becomes our
Dreams.

.Once upon a Time
we closed
our tired eyes,
and met
our very best friends,
the ones
who opened the door
and let you in,
into their Hearts
and into their Lives.
.
The ones,
like Mom and Dad,
who kissed you
when you were very young,
on top of your head,
who said without words
spoken or read,
that Love
Is what we are,
why we are alive,
and the only thing
that should
ever be
said.

                  Keep your eyes on the Sky above.

Under God’s Heavens above
we journey so very far
on the roads of Life.

Keep your eyes
on the Sky above.
Let Love rise,
like the Morning Sun,
and never
let Love depart.

“As I journey through the land, singing as I go,
Pointing Souls to Calvary – to the crimson flow,
Many arrows pierce my Soul from without, within;
But my Lord leads me on,
through Him I must win.

Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His Face,
There to sing forever of His Saving Grace;
On the streets of Glory let me lift my voice,
Cares all past, home at last,
ever to rejoice.

When in service for my Lord
dark may be the night,

But I’ll cling more close to Him,
He will give me Light;

Satan’s snares may vex my Soul,

The eight things kids need to thrive
click here to read more

In an era of aggressive marketing toward kids and parents alike, many parents wonder what kids actually need. Turns out, there’s a pretty clear answer.

“Years of research in child development have identified eight essential requirements for kids to become happy, successful adults,” says Harley Rotbart, MD, a nationally-renowned parenting expert and vice chair emeritus of Pediatrics at Children’s Colorado. “And none of them involve high-tech gadgets, video games or fancy clothes.”

The eight things kids need to thrive

  1. Security

    Kids must feel safe and sound, with their basic survival needs met: shelter, food, clothing, medical care and protection from harm.

  2. Stability

    Stability comes from family and community. Ideally, a family remains together in a stable household, but when that’s not possible, it’s important to disrupt the child’s life as little as possible. Kids and families should be a part of larger units to give them a sense of belonging, tradition and cultural continuity.

  3. Consistency

    No “good cop, bad cop.” Parents should synchronize their parenting and make sure important values stay consistent.

  4. Emotional support

    Parents’ words and actions should encourage kids’ trust, respect, self-esteem and, ultimately, independence.

  5. Love

    Saying and showing you love your kids can overcome almost any parenting “mistakes” you might make. Even when your kids have disobeyed, angered, frustrated and rebelled against you, show them you love them and that you’ll always love them.

  6. Education

    Make sure your kids get the best possible education for their future. This includes school, of course, but it also includes the invaluable life lessons you provide during the time you spend together.

  7. Positive role models

    Parents are their kids’ first and most important role models. Instill your values and teach children empathy by being the kind of person you want them to become.

  8. Structure

    Rules, boundaries, and limits: Without them, kids are forced to be adults before they are ready, and they lose respect for you and other adults.

The “miracle solution”: kids need time

Perhaps the most important factor of all is time. Without enough time to spend with kids and be a parent, “You miss out on the wonderful privileges of parenting,” Dr. Rotbart says. “And kids miss out on some of their needs.”

The converse is also true.

“Time is the miracle solution for most dilemmas of parenthood,” says Dr. Rotbart. “Taken in minutes or hours, the time you spend with your kids gives you the opportunity to provide your kids all their essential needs — and much more.”

Learn Dr. Rotbart’s advice for creating quality time with your kids.

Just 1 Year Of Smartphone Use
Could Cause Memory Loss Among Teens: Research

“The most relevant exposure source to the brain
is the use of a mobile phone close to the head.”

Smartphone Radiation Causing Memory LossCountless times our elders have warned us about the dangers of using a smartphone.  And yet, we never listen to them thinking they are merely blabbering without any research-backed data.

Well now might be the time to apologize for ignoring their sixth sense. New research states that only one year of smartphone radiation is long enough to damage a teenager’s brain.

According to the report published by Environmental Health Perspectives in Switzerland, researchers found a relation between smartphone radiation and short-term memory loss in teenagers.

Over 700 adolescents aged 12 to 17 were exposed to electromagnetic field radiations (RF-EMF) which occur from smartphones during calling.

The study received negative results after the students were given image and verbal tests roughly after one year of the baseline test.

“This may suggest that indeed RF-EMF absorbed by the brain is responsible for the observed associations,” said Martin Röösli, Head of Environmental Exposures.

It is important to note here that the negative impact on the brain occurred only while keeping the phone close to the head. Activities such as playing games, sending a text or browsing the internet don’t necessarily affect the brain since the radiations are far off from the head.

Although, Martin Röösli warns that more research is needed in this area to see how other factors like puberty have played out in the study.  She clears out that phone radiations have a potential risk of damaging brains.

“A unique feature of this study is the use of objectively collected mobile phone user data from mobile phone operators.” Martin Röösli mentions in the research.

As per the research, you can minimize the effects of RF-EMF radiations by using headphones and loudspeakers much often than keeping the phone close to your head.

Lowest Radiation Cell Phones of 2019 (Low SAR Ratings)

lowest radiation cell phones

In this article, I’m going to cover the lowest radiation cell phones, and smartphones, that you can buy.

Although it isn’t the absolute best measure of a phones safety when it comes to EMF radiation exposure, SAR ratings are really our only publicly available means to compare the radiation levels of these devices.

So, after we talk about the lowest radiation phones, I’ll go a bit more in depth about what a SAR Rating is, why it matters, and why it isn’t always the best for determining the safety of a phone.

P.S. If you’re just looking for a great way to protect yourself from the radiation your phone emits, consider getting an EMF protection case. I’m currently using (and loving) this case you can get on Amazon.

Alright, let’s get started!

Lowest Radiation Cell Phones of 2019

This is a comprehensive chart of the lowest radiation cell phones currently available. I’ll do my best to keep it updated as new phones are released and their SAR ratings become available.

Lowest SAR Cell Phone / Smartphone

As you can see from the chart above, technically, the cellphone with the lowest SAR rating currently available is the Verykool Vortex RS90. The Vortex RS90 has a SAR of just .18 w/kg. You probably haven’t heard of this phone because it isn’t particularly popular.

Verykool is a company based out of Miami Florida that has a small line of mobile phones and accessories. The Vortex RS90 (usually just referred to as the Vortex) is a fairly simple, android based Smartphone. The most unique part of the phone is it’s unusually low SAR rating.

As you can see from the chart, coming in just second place with only a slightly higher specific absorption rate, is the Samsung Galaxy Note with a SAR rating of just .19 w/kg. This is by far the lowest radiation smartphone by a major manufacturer.

In fact, Samsung devices hold 12 of the 20 spots for lowest radiation cell phones.

Which leads us to the question:

Why Do Samsung Phones Have Such Low SAR Ratings?

It’s actually a pretty interesting story. It used to be that the FCC mandated that cell phone manufacturers only use antennas that transmitted in all directions, known as omni directional antennas.

In 2003 the FCC changed its rule, in part to protect hearing aids from the radiation emitted from the omni directional antenna, and no longer required that phone manufacturers use this time of antenna.

Three years after this change, in 2006, Samsung released a new antenna that “enhances handset safety by radiating most of the transmitted RF energy away from the handset user.”

This was not only a transformational upgrade for Samsung, but something brand new to the industry. More importantly, though, it dramatically lowered the recorded SAR ratings of all the phones using this antenna.

You see, if you take a look at the image below, you’ll notice that specific absorption rate tests are done with a model head, and a cellphone held by machine very close to the ear. This fairly closely replicates how a normal person would use the phone.

They read how much radiation is absorbed by the dummy. Since Samsung’s new antenna directed most of the radiation away from the head, it resulted in far lower SAR ratings.

So Why Don’t Other Phone Manufacturers Do This?

Well frankly, they don’t have to. The regulations only say that you no longer have to use an omnidirectional antenna and that you have to stay under 1.6 w/kg on SAR tests.

So, not only do phone manufacturers not want to put the money into the research and development, but they also don’t want to admit that there is even a reason to try and achieve lower SAR ratings.

Alright, we’ve talked a lot about SAR ratings when determining the lowest radiation cell phones on the market, so let’s break this down a bit.

What Are SAR Ratings?

SAR, or specific absorption rate, is simply a measurement of how much EMF radiation human tissue absorbs from a specific phone.

So first, what even is Specific Absorption Rate?

Well, in short, SAR is a measurement of the rate at which body tissue absorbs EMF radiation from a specific phone.

This measurement is used internationally, with different countries having set different legal minimums.

In the United States, the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) published a set of rules in 1996 defining the legal EMF exposure limits.

They decided that no phone sold in the United States could have a SAR rating that exceeded 1.6 w/kg of body weight. So, when tested, the dummy (that represents a person) can’t absorb more than 1.6 watts of radiation for each kg of body weight represented.

The measurements are based on a person holding the phone to their ear for 30 minutes.

Are SAR Ratings A Good Way To Determine Cell Phone Safety?

Probably not.

First of all, these SAR standards were set almost 25 years ago, when cell phones, and our understanding of the dangers of EMF radiation, were far different.

Secondly, SAR standards are only designed to protect users from the dangers of the heat generated by microwave radiation. These standards do not account for the non-ionizing radiation that we now know is harmful, especially via long-term exposure.

SAR ratings also don’t really give us a real world example of the radiation emitted or absorbed, since this will be largely determined by the person using the phone, how the phone is being used, apps on the device, etc.

In fact, the FCC on their website admits that:  cell phones constantly vary their power to operate at the minimum power necessary for communications; operation at maximum power occurs infrequently. Consequently, cell phones cannot be reliably compared to their overall exposure characteristics on the basis of a single SAR value.

I won’t go into any more details if you want to learn tons more about SAR ratings, and how to find the SAR rating of your phone, check out this article.

Alright, now let’s answer a few related questions:

How Can I Check The SAR Rating Of My Phone?

There are quite a few ways to check the SAR Rating of a mobile phone, which is why I wrote this post that outlines 7 different ways.

But my favorite, and the one I use most often, is called the “Quick Code” method. Essentially all phone manufacturers are required to have this code protocol that communicates information about the device to the service provider.

There is quite a bit of information contained, and part of that information is the SAR rating of your particular phone.

To use this method, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Open up your phone like you’re about to make a phone call.
  2. Dial exactly this: *#07#
  3. Press send as if you’re about to call that number, and voila, you’ll be presented the information.

Just a quick aside –  I just want to mention that if you’re worried about EMF radiation, there is an E-book that I absolutely cannot recommend any higher called “The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs” that I would really encourage you to check out. I didn’t write it, but it’s one of the absolute best resources available

What Is The Lowest Radiation Smartphone?

The current lowest radiation smartphone (by SAR rating) is the Verykool Vortex RS90 with a SAR rating of .18 w/kg.

What Is The Lowest Radiation i Phone?

The lowest radiation iPhone ever sold was the iPhone 3GS that came out in 2009, and had a reported SAR rating of .79 W/kg. You can reference the chart below for all iPhone SAR ratings.

Model (click for more SAR levels) SAR
Apple iPhone X 1.08 W/kg
Apple iPhone 8 1.14 W/kg
Apple iPhone 7, 1.10 W/kg
Apple iPhone 6 1.18 W/kg
Apple iPhone SE 1.14 W/kg
Apple iPhone 5 1.18 W/kg
Apple iPhone 4S 1.11 W/kg
Apple iPhone 4 1.17 W/kg
Apple iPhone 3GS 0.79 W/kg
Apple iPhone 3G 1.38 W/kg
Apple iPhone 0.97 W/kg
What Is The Lowest Radiation Samsung Phone?

The Samsung phone with the lowest SAR rating is the Samsung Galaxy Note with a rating of just .19 W/kg.

What Is The Lowest Radiation LG Smartphone?

Currently, the LG Exalt has the lowest SAR rating of any LG phone, at just .43 W/kg.

How Can I Reduce My Exposure To Cell Phone Radiation?

I don’t want to go too deep into this topic, because I wrote a hugely comprehensive guide on reducing your exposure to cell phones that you can checkout.

I literally outline 17 different ways you can reduce your exposure, with detailed steps on how to do it.

However, one of the absolute best things you can do is to get a quality EMF protection case for your phone. I’m currently using (and loving) this one you can pick up on Amazon.

It’s also really, really, important that you have a quality EMF meter, like the Trifield TF2. Not only will this let you accurately measure the EMF radiation from your cell-phone, and determine just how low, or high, that radiation is, but it will also be crucial in any EMF mitigation you attempt.

If you’ve noticed throughout my articles, I often recommend this, because, without a good EMF meter, you won’t be able to find the sources of radiation, or know if what you are doing to reduce it is even helping.

Final Thoughts

Alright, now that we’ve exhausted the topic of “lowest radiation mobile phones,” I hope you have a much clearer understanding of:

  • Which phones have low radiation
  • How we determine which phones emit the least radiation
  • What SAR ratings are
  • And so much more.

If you want to expand your knowledge of EMF radiation further, be sure to check out my Knowledge section, or consider picking up this book.

There Are Things We Cannot Deny / All-Natural Products That Pose Absolutely NO Risk / School Again – Tuesday, Jan. 7

“We’re heading for something,
Somewhere I’ve never been.
Sometimes I am frightened.
But I’m ready to learn,
Of the
Power of Love.”
.
Wolfgang Detmann, Jennifer Rush,
Mary Susan Applegate, Gunther Mende

We are
yearning to know
the Source of our Existence,
the Meaning
of our Life.

And in contemplating
the seemingly unfathomable,
we may come realize
that in the depths
of our Hearts,
in our Love
for our Children,
and in our Love
for ourselves,
and our Love for each other,
and in the Love
of God,
is the ultimate meaning
of Life,
the understanding,
the Hope
for all
Mankind.

one-white-flower

     A vivacious Love of Life and Living.

Our quest
to understand
the Beautiful Abstract Art
that is Life,
invites you to discover
something about yourself,
and your Maker,
and
about the meaning
of Life itself.

It is not easy to comprehend
our Portraits,
drawn from the struggles
to survive,
blended as they are
with the illusions of Life
and of Living.

In each moment,
we stand at a
crossroads
and sigh.
For,
there are things
we cannot
deny.
.
One is,
that without Love,
we will surely
die.

Nowhere
to be found,
is Love
never felt.

Nowhere
to be heard,
is a Song
never sung.

In the darkness
of silence
we
cannot remain,
we cannot
survive.

“Hello darkness,
My old Friend,

I’ve come to talk with you again.
Because a Vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.
And the Vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains,
Within the sound
Of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked Light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share.
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

Fools
said I,
“You do not know.

Silence like a cancer grows.
..
Hear my words
that I might teach you.

Take my arms that I might reach you.
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of
silence

Simon & Garfunkel

Nowhere to be heard, is a Song never sung.

Our reason for Being
appears
to be open to interpretation.
Our representation on Earth,
in such brevity
as is this one brief moment,
is as fleeting
as the movement of clouds
across the horizon
of our sky.

“From this moment Life has begun.
From this moment you are the one.
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on.

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your Love I’d give my last breath.
From this moment on.

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can’t wait to live my life with you, can’t wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will Love you,
I promise you this

There is nothing I wouldn’t give
From this moment on.

You’re the reason I believe in Love
And you’re the answer to my prayers from up above.
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you.

From this moment as long as I live
I will Love you,
I promise you this

From this moment
I will love you as long as I live.
From this moment on.”

My Dear Friends,
we are called to reflect
upon the Life
of our ancestors.
.
As we gaze into the eyes
of our Children,
Love,
Honor,
and Cherish
our Mother Earth.
Walk upon Her lightly.
And wish Happiness and Kindness

“Perhaps Love
is like a resting place,

A shelter from the storm.
It exists to give you comfort.
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of Love will bring you Home.

Perhaps Love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more.
And even if you lose yourself,
And don’t know what to do,
The memory of Love will see you through.

Oh, Love to some is like a cloud,
To some as strong as steel,
For some a way of living,
For some a way to feel.
And some say Love is holding on,
And some say letting go.
And some say Love is everything,
And some say they don’t know.

Perhaps Love is like the ocean:
Full of conflict, full of change,
Like a fire when it’s cold outside,
Or thunder when it rains.
If I should live forever,
And all my dreams come true,
My memories of Love will be of
you
John Denver

WHAT

will make one think and reflect
upon the Beauty

of Life.

Blessings
are all around us.
Just become aware of them.
It is easy
to lose focus on what we have,
and on what we lack.
But,
thinking such as this,
is detrimental
to you,
and all those
who cherish you,
and Love you.

The great Blessing
that comes from having a Child
is the intense Love and Joy
that overcomes you when your child
is what you are thinking of.
.
This Love you feel
will make you want to protect
and Pray for them,
and give them the greatest Life
and all the Love
that you can.
And then,
My Friend,
let God do the rest
in bringing up
your child.

Life is a Beautiful Gift.
And,
a child received by
a grateful Mother and Father,
is as Beautiful and Precious
as anything we find in nature.

Goodnight.

Someone’s lost the plan

For the Brotherhood of Man.

And no one’s trying to find it anymore.

And the winds become a sigh,

For those who hate and those who die.

And the waves are black and slow along the shore.

And will the grass be gone from underneath the sky?

Will the golden flower wither soon and die?

Will the fire burn out the land?

And the sea fill-up with sand?

Will the last word ever spoken
be
why?

All-Natural Products That Pose Absolutely NO Risk
from Natural News
http://www.naturalnews.com

Keeping harmful chemicals in your home puts both children and pets at risk (as well as adults), especially if they accidentally get into them when you’re not looking. That’s why it’s best to use all-natural products that pose absolutely NO risk, except to your target.

Below are ways to effectively deter ants naturally, provided by Mother Nature Network.

Lemon Juice – Spraying pure lemon juice in or around openings near your home can prevent the pests from entering.

Kylee found several new friends.

Kylee found several new friends at the Zoo.

Cinnamon – Ground, oil or combined with ground cloves, both fill your home with warm, seasonal scents and deter ants if sprinkled in their paths.

Peppermint – either by itself, or combined with equal parts water can be mixed and sprayed directly at the ants or along their pathways.

Coffee grounds – place used coffee grounds in the cracks near their entryway. The coffee deters the ants, forcing them to set up shop somewhere else.

Chalk – Drawing a line around windows or doorway entries has kept ants at bay for some. You can usually find chalk at home improvement stores, some of which come in a squeeze bottle, making application easy.

Baking soda and powdered sugar – Mixing baking soda and powdered sugar in jar lids and placing them in strategic corners can greatly reduce ant populations.

Hot water and dish soap – Filling a spray bottle with soap and hot water can work very effectively against ants. Also, food items that attract ants, such as honey jars, can be placed on a small water-filled saucer to prevent the insects from reaching it.

Rylee, Kylee and Kayla loved the birds.

Rylee, Kylee and Kayla loved feeding the birds.

Vinegar plus equal parts water isn’t just great for cleaning your kitchen counter tops and floors but has been known to sufficiently kill unwanted insects. Pouring the solution where the ants have their nest is key. You can also mix vinegar with peppermint for an extra kick that gets rid of them faster.

Cream of wheat – Posts on Helpful Gardener say cream of wheat takes care of ant infestations. After eating the cream of wheat, rolled oats, dry cornmeal or grits, it swells up in their guts and their stomachs explode.

We love the Fort Worth Zoo.

Also from Natural News: For decades, top officials at the Environmental Protection Agency (PEA) were aware that a compound approved for agricultural use in the United States was wiping out the Honeybee population, but they chose to ignore the compound’s effects in deference to pressure from agri-giant corporations.

Worse, the agency reacted harshly to anyone within the EPA who attempted to bring the issue to light, including through firings, forced reassignments and other actions.According to a scholarly study [PDF] compiled by researcher Rosemary Mason, “on behalf of a global network of independent scientists, beekeepers and environmentalists,” and published on the website of MIT, “We have found evidence to show that the herbicide glyphosate (or alternatives) the primary substance found in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide – became a global best-selling herbicide because the public was told by industry and the regulators that it was ‘safe.’ “

The results have been disastrous. The heavy use of glyphosate has led to the rise of so-called “superweeds” that are resistant to the herbicide. And there is another compound that was approved by the EPA — over the objections of scientists — that has had a devastating effect on the nation’s honeybee population: clothianidin, which is used for seed treatment on corn and canola, by Bayer.

        ‘Honeybees are going extinct’

According to this EPA document describing clothianidin [PDF], it “is highly toxic to honey bees on an acute contact basis,” and “has the potential for toxic chronic exposure to honey bees, as well as other non-target pollinators, through residues in nectar and pollen. “In Honey bees, the effects of this toxic chronic exposure may include lethal effects in the larvae and reproductive effects in the queen,”. Her research team found additional evidence of corporate/EPA cover-up regarding the effects of clothianidin.
This 99-page EPA memorandum, [PDF] noted, in part:The major risk concerns are with aquatic free-swimming and benthic invertebrates, terrestrial invertebrates, birds and mammals.Clothianidin is an insecticide that is both persistent and systemic. Acute toxicity studies to honey bees show that clothianidin is highly toxic on both a contact and an oral basis.

Tests and field studies, as well as incident reports suggest the potential for long term toxic risk to honey bees and other beneficial insects.

A number of EPA scientists – those with integrity, anyway – have tried along the way to sound the alarm – over both glyphosate and clothianidin.

In a piece for The Huffington Post, former EPA scientist Evaggelos Vallianatos wrote that honeybees were on the verge of extinction.

Here is a beneficial insect pollinating a third of America’s crops, especially fruits and vegetables, and we thank the fragile and highly beneficial honeybees with stupefying killing.

Poisoning of honeybees became routine in the mid-1970s with the EPA’s approval of neurotoxins encapsulated in dust-size particles that took days to release their deadly gas. He further noted that some of his colleagues have tried to denounce the EPA actions, but the agency reacted “with fury” after one EPA ecologists discovered neurotoxic plastic spheres in the gut of a queen honeybee, which “meant poison in the honey.

“It forced the scientist out of his laboratory and into paper pushing in Washington. Approval of the industry’s neurotoxins expanded to cover most major crops. This meant honeybees had less and less space to search for food without dying,” Villianatos wrote. Read the entire Mason report here [PDF].

Please Note: LeVonna and I maintain a honeybee hive behind our home. Honeybees have thrived on our property for decades. We have lived in harmony and have treasured their presence. The wildflowers we keep during the Spring and Summer, in front of the school, are beautiful to see and they are for our Friends – OUR beautiful and precious HONEY BEES.

But more importantly, the Flowers are grown without the use of pesticides and benefit our precious, life sustaining honey bees and many other beautiful creations, such as spectacular moths, mosquito eating and unbelievably beautiful Dragonflies, our precious friends the Praying Mantises, our bountiful and beautiful life saving birds and many others.

 

 

Our Existence Permeates the Known

The Melody
of our brief Lives
harbors a deep
meaning,
and flows through
Time
like a Beautiful Song
lilting through the
air.

There is a
Transcendence,
a purity of form
in our Human Lives
as we sing our songs
of Being.
Angelic
and sublime poetry
are we,
Children of God.
Music
to elevate the Soul
and reveal
that we are
Divine Art.

My Dear Friends,
you are not bound
to the Earth.
You
can propel
your Mind and your Heart
through Prayer.

Our Existence
permeates the
known,
by the Will
of God.

Do not fear
to ask God
for anything.
He longs
to fulfill the Dreams
of His Beloved
Children.

He Delights
in our Faith
to ask for
the Amazing,
for the Impossible.

Through Prayer,
you forge a connection
with and within yourself
and the Natural World
you inhabit
to the Natural
and Nurturing
Will of God.

                       Ask for the Amazing.

If
you close both
eyes,
the other eye
will see.

And,
what
we see
through the eyes
of others,
is ourselves.

Where we are,
is who
we are
with.

Let the Beauty around you, become you.

Find
the mirror
of your Child’s
face,
and smile.
.
Let the Beauty
around you,
become you.
There is
nothing
more Beautiful,
than you,
reflected in eyes
of your
Child.

Nothing.

     Where we are is who we are with.

Keep smiling
My Friend.
Your Child hears
every word
you do not speak.

Tomorrow
has been waiting
a Lifetime
for you.
The clinging shadows
cast by the Light
of today,
is the Mystery
of the past.
And a past
that lasts,
is the future.

True Genius
is to be
a Child
again.

“Many creative geniuses
tend to return
to the conceptual World of Childhood
as catalysts for either their work or their ideas.
Our ability to learn new things
is a characteristic we lose over time.”
Alison Gopnik

My Dear Friends,
dance happily in the rain,
jump in the puddles,
sing Soulfully,
cry with tears of Joy,
laugh heartily
and Truly Live to relish
every bit
of this precious moment
we call
Life.

It is far better
to be ignorant
than know too much.

An intelligent person
can still be ignorant about many things.
No matter how smart we are,
all of us are ignorant about the vast majority
of the information out there.

Count your
Blessings.

Socrates advised us:
to distinguish what you know
from what you don’t know,
and thus see that you are not wise,
is the only Wisdom man can have.
Socratic ignorance
is also “Socratic Wisdom.

“The trouble with the world
is not that people know too little,
but that they know so many things
that ain’t so.”

Henry David Thoreau

“We live on an island
surrounded by a sea of
ignorance.”

Mark Twain
.
Through the untainted Eyes
of a Child
we may truly
be alive
.

                   A Child again.

Oh To Be A Child Again.
Oh to dance with glee
Oh to have no worries
And live a life carefree.
.
To see fun in the shadows
A rainbow in the rain
A light amongst the darkness
And not to feel the pain.

To live with total innocence
And not know how to lie
To love with all your being
Until your time to die.
.
To smile at every person
Whether rich or poor.
To play out in the open
And not to close the door.
To speak without the fear
Of saying something wrong.
To sing without the worry
Of not knowing the song.
To live life to the fullest
To give each day its best
No worry of the future
Or failing in life’s test.
See wonder in the smallest Being,
Beauty in a Tree.
Oh to be a Child again
And live a Life carefree.

                 We may truly be alive.

In the Presence
of our Lord’s Grace,
Love becomes
Infinite Time,
in dimensionless Space.
It cannot be defined,
only viewed as Breathtaking Art,
Beauty
found only in a place
we call
the Human Heart.

It
is not you
who can be strong.
It is
Truth,
conveyed by
you.
.
And,
there’s Truth
in your Beautiful eyes,
in the smile
on your face.
It speaks of
God’s Love,
buried deep within,
showing
the Beauty
of Inner Grace.

You say it best
when,
knowing your children
need you,
and hearing them call,
the Love in your eyes speaks,
and you need say
nothing at all.

Between
a Mother or Father
and a precious Child
lies an Infinity
of Worlds,
and of words
never said.

Goodnight.

Believing In Each Other / The Healing Power of Music / Friday: Christmas Party at School

Among
the greatest of Blessings
is the Gift
of what we
Believe.
And the Gift
of Believing
in each other
can become truly
unbelievable.

What lay before us
in our Friendships,
and in our Trust,
can surpass all
knowing.

And,
knowing you,
is seeing
me.

“We Believe each other
into Being.”
Jennifer Michael Hecht

Beyond
the Horizon
of Life and Living,
is all the
Love
we will ever need.

“Greater Love has no one than this,
than to lay down one’s Life for his friends.”
John 15:13

My Dear Friends,
with every breath
you take,
you save the Life
of another,
another moment,
another new dawn,
another Beautiful Day,
and YOU.

To take this
moment
in your hands
and warmly embrace
Today,
will give you
the Gift
of JOY.

Being focused
on what you are doing,
will make you
the Happiest person
you can be.
Happiness
is found
by Living in the
NOW.

              Happening right NOW !

Research
tells us
that people spend
nearly half of the Time
thinking about something
other than
what they are doing.
They think ahead,
or of the past,
or they dream
during the day.
They
allow the fragile
and very Human mind
to wander.

My Friends,
things that are
not happening right NOW,
are the least engaging,
and can be destructive
to our Happiness.

“A Human Mind
is a wandering mind.
And a wandering mind
is an unhappy mind.
The ability to think about
what is NOT happening,
is a cognitive achievement
that comes at an
emotional COST.”
from Journal Science

There is more
than Life
in THIS moment,
more than Love,
more than
ALL
the Blessings from
Above.

THIS
moment in Time
is a Belief
in Tomorrow.
It is
HOPE
to end all
sorrow,
and the WONDER
of it all,
Today,
not Tomorrow.

              Cast into the vast Unknown.

The Children
of yesterday
grant pardon
for all that
has been done.
They
are now grown
or gone.

“I believe that we are here for each other,
not against each other.
Everything comes from an understanding
that you are a gift in my life.”
John Denver

The distance between
the shores of your departure
in days gone by,
and the Horizon
of your Dreams,
is Infinite.

YOU,
and you alone,
shape this moment
into everything
that will be.

The Rays of the
Sun
are cast into
the vast Unknown
never to return.
Much like
the Hope in our
Hearts,
when Love shines
bright
in its Infinite
Sojourn.

Blessings
are all around.
Our need
is to become aware of them.
.

It is so easy
to lose focus
on what we are doing
and start living in the
past,
or the imagined past
of Tomorrow.
But this is detrimental
to our Joy
in the moment.

Life
is a Beautiful
Gift.

The perfume
of Creation
is spilled all over
our Sacred Planet.
To open the doors
of opportunity and possibility
in every area of Life,
just open your
eyes,
open your ears,
and open your Heart
.
.
There is a
Key
to unlock
the Beautiful and Bountiful
Mysteries of this Life
.
It is
awareness:
a profound and intense
knowing
that YOU are
here,
in this Sacred moment of
Time.

The greatest Life
that you can Live,
lies in bringing up the
Child
you are,
and in letting God
do the rest.

The intense Love and Joy
your can feel
is as Beautiful and precious
as anything to be found
in nature.

Goodnight.

 

 

 

 

Dancing in the Shadows of the Illusions of Life and Living / Prenatal Fluoride Exposure Associated with Lower IQ / Friday: Museum of Science and History

We
are in
but a fleeting moment,
dancing
in the shadows
of the illusions
of Life,
and Living.

Each precious moment,
like us,
quickly
disappears in
Time.

 “Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your Life?
It is
even a vapor,
that appeareth for a little time,
and then vanisheth away.”
James 4:14

Thousands
of yesterdays
make up Mankind’s
Joy and sorrow,
Today,
but not necessarily
Tomorrow.

The Light
of the Sun
flows through the
Skies above,
like Love
flows through our
Hearts.

         Like Love flows through our Hearts.

It Lights
the Dawn
like the Beautiful Song
of the early morning
Birds.

The Beautiful World
all around
is so profound,
as we come to see
there is nothing
but Beauty,
when the Love
of God
is near.

“Every Word of God is pure.
He is a shield unto them
that put their trust in Him.”
Proverbs 30:5

Freedom,
My Dear Friend,
is knowing that
YOU
are the center
of God’s Universe,
and that He
dwells within
His Loving Child –
YOU.

The embodiment of
Truth
is you,
Child of God.
Truth is in
everyone,
and it is
Eternally there.

Your strength,
your comfort,
your Happiness,
can only be found
deep within
yourself –
deep within,
where resides
the Love of
God.

Look
for Eternal Happiness
in the unconditional realization
of yourself,
enfolded within
the Loving Arms
of our Heavenly Father.

                          In the Heart of every Child.

Nestled in the Heart
of every Child
is the center
of the Universe –
a place of Worship
and tranquility,
in the Cathedral
of the Human Heart.

If
you look for God,
you will find Him there.
Pray,
as you peer inside
your Sacred Heart,
and you will never
want to leave.

To know
that God Loves
YOU,
is all you need
to know.

The most important
and Sacred Treasure
is Wisdom
that comes from
within.

It
is central
to our Spiritual lives.

If the illusions of Life
become too much,
close your tired eyes
and Pray.
Engage you Faith
openly and enthusiastically.

God
will embrace you
until the fear inside
subsides.

The Cathedral
of your precious and very fragile
Heart
is a Spiritual Gem,
a place of Beauty par excellence,
a Sacred Space to Worship
and reflect upon
Spiritual values,
the values
that are REAL.

At the very Heart of Worship,
is Worship with the Heart
.
Only LOVE
gives you the strength to carry on,
truly Living in the moment,
and forgiving
the past
.

My Dear Friends,
the World is far below
where we belong.
All we have
is the
moment,
to let Love
lift us up
where clear winds blow
through the cobwebs
of the mind
.
We have Wings
and
we can fly,
so high
we can see
Eternity.

.
Yes,
there are mountains
to overcome.
We can climb
every step
of the way,
or fly
and let Love Lift us
up
where we belong.

There is a part of Life
that gives us
the Hope we need.
Hope to Light the Dawn
and cherish the day.
Hope and inspiration
can work wonders
in our brief Lives.

Life,
is worth Living
when it has been
Happy,

when someone holds you
by the hand
and helps you
see the World
for the illusion
it really
is.

There is only
ONE
revolutionary war
that can truly be
won.
All others
waste
Humanity,
as it wars
against itself.

To win
is
to engage in the perpetual struggle
of the mind,
with all the LOVE
deeply embedded
in your Human Heart.

Please
do not let
your precious Heart cry.
God
will always Love you.

Just,
keep Love
alive.

The whispers
of the leaves
rustling through the
Trees,
is all we need to know
about the presence
of God’s Love.
And,
as the withered leaves
collect at your feet,
and the wind
begins to
moan,
remember,
with the Sun
they fell
in Love.

“The Heavens declare
the Glory of God;

and the firmament
sheweth His Handywork.”
Psalms 19-1

How
can a lonely Soul
appreciate Life.

The Human Heart
can be a Lonely Hunter,
crying through the night
with tears that reverberate
through time.

But Hope remains.
For you

Researchers Find Evidence Fluoride May Affect IQ

by George Citroner
on August 19, 2019

A new study draws attention to potential issues with fluoride consumption.

A new study looks at fluoride exposure in utero and the potential link to IQ.

The 70-year-old public health effortTrusted Source that saw water fluoridation become common in the United States is applauded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)Trusted Source as one of the great achievements for public health in the 20th century.

Currently, almost 75 percentTrusted Source of the population use fluoridated water from their local water systems.

“Fluoride is a mineral that readily binds to bones and teeth. It’s typically used in dentistry to promote remineralization of dentinTrusted Source in the outer enamel of teeth,” explained Pamela Den Besten, DDS, MS, professor of orofacial sciences at University of California, San Francisco.

We now take for granted that the addition of fluoride to public drinking water not only prevents tooth decay, but is also basically harmless.

But now early research has brought up the possibility that fluoride could affect IQ levels in children exposed to the chemical in utero.

Prenatal fluoride exposure associated with lower IQ

Researchers studied 512 children in Canada to find that those who were exposed to higher levels of fluoride before birth had significantly lower IQ scores between ages 3 and 4.

The study was published today in JAMA Pediatrics.Trusted Source

For the study, about 2,000 pregnant women from 10 cities across Canada were recruited from the Maternal-Infant Research on Environmental Chemicals (MIREC) program.

The findings suggest that fluoride ingestion during pregnancy, within the normal range of water fluoridation standards, may affect children in utero.

The study concluded that fluoride ingestion during pregnancy should be reduced while additional research is conducted.

“To our knowledge, this study is the first to estimate fluoride exposure in a large birth cohort receiving optimally fluoridated water,” the study authors wrote.

Fluoride safety has long been debated

Information on consumption of tap water and other water-based beverages, like tea and coffee, was obtained from a self-report questionnaire completed by mothers during the first and third trimesters.

“Since the 1950s when water fluoridation began, its safety has been debated. We realized that there were major questions about the safety of fluoride, especially for pregnant women and young children. Decisions about safety need to be based on evidence,” study author Rivka Green, MA, a doctoral student in clinical developmental neuropsychology at York University, told Healthline.

The study found the association of prenatal fluoride exposure with children’s lower IQ scores held up even after accounting for factors like the mother’s education, socioeconomic status, location, and exposure to other toxic metals.

“Short of dosing women, we did everything we could to adjust for the factors that are typically controlled for in these types of studies. We studied an extensive list of other characteristics, like socioeconomic status and city, as well as other exposures, like lead, arsenic, and secondhand smoke, and our results remained,” Green said.

Previous research led by York University researchers had already found that fluoride levels were twice as high for pregnant Canadian women living in cities where public drinking water is fluoridated compared to those in cities where the drinking water isn’t.

“We found that fluoride in drinking water was the major source of exposure for pregnant women living in Canada. Women living in fluoridated communities have two times the amount of fluoride in their urine as women living in non-fluoridated communities,” Christine Till, PhD, an associate professor of psychology in York’s faculty of health and lead author of the study, said in a statement.

Findings agree with previous research

This study adds to what we know from recent research that also found an association between prenatal exposure to fluoride and reduced intelligence.

“Some previous studies showed that higher levels of fluoride were associated with lower IQ scores in children, including another prospective cohort study published in 2017 by the ELEMENT group, which found similar results to ours,” Green said.

“However, our study was the first to look at prenatal exposure in a sample receiving optimally fluoridated water,” she emphasized.

Other potential fluoride issues

According to Besten, who wasn’t involved with the new study, aside from the findings of these studies, consuming more than optimal amounts of fluoride can stain and weaken teeth.

But consuming that much fluoride is unlikely to occur just from drinking tap water.

“The most obvious effect of fluoride is the formation of fluorosed enamel. Fluorosis occurs when excess fluoride is present when the tooth is forming, and this excess fluoride results in hypomineralization [softening and discoloration of tooth enamel], which gives a whiter appearance to fluorosed, as compared to normal, enamel,” Besten said.

She cautions that early research in animal studies have found a potential neurotoxic issue for high levels of fluoride.

They “show that neurotoxicity of fluoride is related to the dose, timing of exposure, and sex of the individual,” Besten said. “More recent epidemiological researchTrusted Source show associations between fluoride and neurotoxicity in humans,” she added.

Decades of use to stop tooth decay

In an emailed statement to Healthline, Dr. Aparna Bole, FAAP, chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Council on Environmental Health, points out that community water fluoridation has helped decrease tooth decay for decades, and that this is one study that pointed toward correlation, not causation.

“In most communities, tap water is a healthy and environmentally preferable choice,” Bole told Healthline. “This study is thought provoking, but the fact that results were different for boys and girls make them somewhat difficult to interpret, and fluoride intake in children was not examined.”

Bole points out that the AAP supports community water fluoridation.

“We support the public health sector’s continual evaluation of optimal community water fluoridation, and continue to recommend that children drink optimally fluoridated water,” Bole said.

“In addition, children should use age-appropriate amounts of fluoride toothpaste with adult supervision, and have fluoride varnish applied to their teeth according to the US Preventive Task Force guidelines.”

The bottom line

Recent research finds that prenatal exposure to “optimal” levels of fluoride in drinking water is strongly associated with reduced IQ when those children are between 3 and 4 years old.

This study adds to previous research that also found intelligence negatively affected in this population.

The American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Environmental Health maintains that children should still drink optimally fluoridated water, use age-appropriate amounts of fluoride toothpaste, and have fluoride varnish applied to their teeth.
