Smile more

Even though you may not feel like showing your pearly whites, a Smile instantly makes you feel better. Turning up the corners of your lips, even when you don’t feel like smiling, will brighten your mood and remind you of what Happiness is supposed to feel like. Not only will you feel better, but giving someone a smile will make them feel better too, and this smile becomes infectious.

Spend some time alone

Being caught up in work and family commitments can leave you drained and bored. Spending time alone, therefore, is important to your overall mental health. “Me time” gives you time to de-stress, time to re-evaluate your goals and priorities in life and time to regain a zest for Life. Finding simple pleasures while being alone can be as simple as sipping your favorite cup of tea while reading a good book, sketching or taking a walk.

Do something nice for someone

If you’ve ever heard of the concept “pay it forward,” you’ll know that if you were on the receiving end of a good deed, then repaying a good deed by doing a good deed for someone else is a great idea. Whether it’s paying for a stranger’s cup of coffee in the morning lineup or volunteering to help a friend or family member with something they’ve needed help with, doing something nice for someone else may not be completely selfless, but it’s a simple way to feel better. Feeling productive and helpful will make your day as well as someone else’s. So go ahead, pay it forward and hopefully these kind acts will also become infectious.

Keep a happy list

One week, I recorded everything that made me Happy. These things were as simple as good coffee and a good conversation, peanut butter and someone playing with my hair. What I realized is that everything that made me happy was so simple and not materialistic. Try keeping a “Happy list” by recording things that make you Happy throughout your day for a week or two. Aim to record at least two or three things a day, and see what you come up with. Keeping this Happy list handy will remind you of simple ways to be Happy, even on your bad days.

Live in the moment

Corita Kent once wrote, “Life is a succession of moments. To Live each one is to succeed.” This is definitely true when it comes to Happiness. We all worry about the future or are stuck on relationships or problems from the past, but Living in the present moments and fully taking in these moments allow us to enjoy each day as much as possible.

We can find Happiness during whatever overwhelming situations we may be facing by simply taking a deep breath and refocusing our minds on what’s happening around us in a specific moment. This allows us to really feel and sense pleasant things that we may have missed in our busy daily lives.

A New Dimension to a Meaningful Life

Studies suggest that appreciating beauty in the everyday may be just as powerful as a sense of overarching purpose.

A New Dimension to a Meaningful Life
Credit: Westend61/Getty Images

When we think about lives filled with meaning, we often focus on people whose grand contributions benefited humanity. Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela surely felt they had a worthwhile Life. But how about us ordinary people, toiling away in a typical existence?

Many scholars agree that a subjectively meaningful existence often boils down to three factors: the feeling that one’s life is coherent and “makes sense,” the possession of clear and satisfying long-term goals and the belief that one’s Life matters in the grand scheme of things. Psychologists call these three things coherence, purpose and existential mattering.

Beautiful Butterflies and Flowers Wallpapers (56+ images)

But we believe there is another element to consider. Think about the first butterfly you stop to admire after a long winter or imagine the scenery atop a hill after a fresh hike. Sometimes existence delivers us small moments of beauty. When people are open to appreciating such experiences, these moments may enhance how they view their life. We call this element experiential appreciation. The phenomenon reflects the feeling of a deep connection to events as they transpire and the ability to extract value from that link. It represents the detection of and admiration for Life’s inherent Beauty.

We recently set out to better understand this form of appreciation in a series of studies, published in Nature Human Behaviour, that involved more than 3,000 participants. Across these studies, we were interested in whether experiential appreciation was related to a person’s sense of meaning even when we accounted for the effects of the classic trio of coherence, purpose and existential mattering. If so, experiential appreciation could be a unique contributor to meaningfulness and not simply a product of these other variables.

Free photo: Beautiful seascape - Wildlife, Sea, White - Free Download ...

As an initial test of our idea, during the early stages of the COVID pandemic, we had participants rate their endorsement of different coping strategies to relieve their stress. We found that people who managed stress by focusing on their appreciation for Life’s Beauty also reported experiencing Life as highly meaningful.

In the next study, we asked participants to rate the extent to which they agreed with various statements, such as “I have a great appreciation for the beauty of life” and “I appreciate a wide variety of experiences,” as well as other statements that related to coherence, purpose, existential mattering and a general sense of meaning in life.

Our results showed that the more people indicated that they were “appreciating life” and its many experiences, the more they felt their existence was valuable. In fact, these two elements related strongly to each other even when we controlled for other aspects of a meaningful life. In subsequent studies, we further explored the connection between these concepts. For example, we found that participants asked to recall the most meaningful event of the past week generally reported high experiential appreciation in those moments.

most beautiful sunset by justjustas on DeviantArt

Finally, we conducted a series of experiments in which we gave people specific tasks and, once more, asked them to report how strongly they identified with statements linked to purpose, mattering, et cetera.

In one case, we found that participants who watched an awe-inspiring video, such as the opening sequence of the BBC documentary Planet Earth, reported having a greater sense of experiential appreciation and meaning in life, compared with participants who watched more neutral videos, such as an instructional woodworking video.

Similarly, participants who wrote about a recent experience for which they were grateful had a greater sense of meaning and experiential appreciation afterward when compared with participants who simply wrote about a common place they had visited in the past week.

"Hummingbird Green-crowned Brilliant, Heliodoxa jacula, green bird from ...

The results confirmed our original theory: appreciating small things can make Life feel more meaningful. But applying that insight can be difficult. Our modern, fast-paced, project-oriented lifestyles fill the day with targets and goals. We are on the go, and we attempt to maximize output both at work and at leisure. This focus on future outcomes makes it all too easy to miss what is happening right now. Yet Life happens in the present moment. We should slow down, let Life surprise us and embrace the significance in the everyday.

As former Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru wrote in 1950, “We live in a wonderful world…. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”

Processed meat ‘linked to breast cancer’

 
BaconImage source, Getty Images

Regularly eating foods like bacon and sausages may raise the risk of breast cancer, according to researchers.

A review of studies found women who ate high levels of processed meat had a 9% increased risk of the cancer compared with those who ate little of it.

The study backs up previous findings of the World Health Organization, which says processed meats cause cancer.

Experts recommend caution about the findings and say the actual risk for individual women is “very small”.

How reliable are the findings?

This review, which included data on more than a million women, shows a link between processed meat consumption and breast cancer risk, but it’s not clear if the food is actually causing this.

There are also other pitfalls to consider.

The 15 studies used in the analysis had different definitions of the highest consumptions.

For example, one of the UK studies in the review classed high consumption as more than 9g a day – the equivalent of just two or three rashers a week – while in others it was much higher.

The researchers in the majority of these studies noted what people said they ate and followed them up to see which of them developed breast cancer.

But the problem with this is that people who eat different amounts of processed meat may also have other behaviors that might explain the differences in breast cancer risk, such as being more or less healthy in other ways.

What is the risk?

In the UK about 14 out of every 100 women will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.

That means a 9% increase in risk in this population would be expected to translate into roughly one extra case of cancer in every 100 women.

It estimates that about 8% of cases are caused by being overweight and obese and another 8% by alcohol.

Authors of this study, published in the International Journal of Cancer, say the link they found is only for processed meat, not red meat.

The WHO lists processed meat as carcinogenic, primarily because of evidence linking it to a raised risk of bowel cancer, while it says red meat is “probably carcinogenic”.

What is processed meat?

Graphic: Classification of red & processed meat products

Processed meat has been modified to either extend its shelf life or change the taste, usually by smoking, curing, or adding salt or preservatives to meat.

This includes bacon, sausages, hot dogs, salami, corned beef, beef jerky and ham.

There are different theories for why it may raise the risk of cancer, including that curing salt may react with protein in the meat to make it carcinogenic.

So should we cut out processed meat?

Lead author Dr Maryam Farvid, of the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in the US, recommends cutting down on the meat rather than eliminating it.

Currently, the NHS recommends eating no more than 70g of red and processed meat a day.

Dr Gunter Kuhnle, associate professor in nutrition and health at the University of Reading, who was not involved in the study, said it was “questionable” whether people should lower their red and processed meat consumption on the back of this study.

He said the actual risk posed by processed meats was “very small” for the individual and more relevant on a population-wide level.

However, he said the study’s findings should be followed up to investigate the links between processed meat and cancer and see whether the associated risk could be reduced, for example through new food production methods.

Knowledge is power
and LIFE.

Our Need for Love

When left alone, we will not survive.
by Dalai Lama

Ultimately, the reason why love and compassion bring us the greatest happiness is simply that our nature cherishes them above all else. The need for love lies at the very foundation of Human existence. It results from the profound interdependence we all share with one another. However capable and skillful an individual may be, left alone he or she will not survive. However vigorous and independent one may feel during the most prosperous periods of life, when one is sick or very young or very old, one must depend on the support of others.

Interdependence, of course, is a fundamental law of nature. Not only higher forms of life, but also many of the smallest insects are social beings who, without any religion, law, or education, survive by mutual cooperation based on an innate recognition of their interconnectedness. The most subtle level of material phenomena is also governed by interdependence. In fact, all phenomena – be they from the oceans, the clouds, or the forests that surround us – arise in dependence upon subtle patterns of energy. Without their proper interaction, they dissolve and decay.

It is because our own human existence is so dependent on the help of others that our need for love lies at the very foundation of our existence. Therefore, we need a genuine sense of responsibility and a sincere concern for the welfare of others.

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

The expression of Love is also very important at the time of birth. Since the very first thing we do is suck milk from our mothers’ breast, we naturally feel close to her, and she must feel love for us in order to feed us properly; if she feels anger or resentment, her milk may not flow freely. Then there is the critical period of brain development from the time of birth up to at least the age of three or four, during which time loving physical contact is the single most important factor for the normal growth of the child. If the child is not held, hugged, cuddled, or loved, its development will be impaired and its brain will not mature properly.

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

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

In the end, since a child cannot survive without the care of others, love is its most important nourishment.

The happiness of childhood, the allaying of the child’s many fears, and the healthy development of its self-confidence all depend directly upon Love.

Even when we engage in ordinary conversation in everyday life, if someone speaks with human feeling, we enjoy listening and respond accordingly; the whole conversation becomes interesting, however unimportant the topic may be. On the other hand, if a person speaks coldly or harshly, we feel uneasy and wish for a quick end to the interaction. From the least to the most important event, the affection and respect of others are vital for our Happiness.

Recently I met a group of scientists in America who said that the rate of mental illness in their country was quite high – around 12 percent of the population. It became clear during our discussion that the main cause of depression was not a lack of material necessities, but a deprivation of the affection of others. So, as you can see from everything I have written so far, whether or not we are consciously aware of it, from the day we are born the need for human affection is in our very blood. Even if the affection comes from an animal or someone we would normally consider an enemy, both children and adults will naturally gravitate toward it.

I believe that no one is born free of the need for Love. And this demonstrates that, although some modern schools of thought seek to do so, human beings cannot be defined as solely physical. No material object – however beautiful or valuable – can make us feel Loved, because our deeper identity and true character lie in the subjective nature of the mind.

 Powerful Ways to Free Your Mind and Discover Greater Personal and Professional Success
by Joan Moran
click here to read more

When you free the mind, you are overcoming distractions that get in the way of what matters most to you personally and professionally. Creating open space in your mind will increase your focus and confidence and enhance the quality of your life.
This post was published on the now-closed HuffPost Contributor platform. Contributors control their own work and posted freely to our site.

My eldest son just recently left his job because he was terribly unhappy and unfulfilled. Since he has a family to support — three of my grandchildren and a wife — it felt to most of the family that leaving a well-paid job was professional suicide.

A Rough Go
My son had a rough go of it for the last several years. One of those vulture capitalists engineered a takeover and he lost his company of 11 years. For the last year and a half he was a CFO of a company that owned properties and franchises. He was unhappy about its lackluster attempts to expand and reach it’s full potential. My son wanted to add value to the business, but he wasn’t making inroads.

For several years, my son has been consulting with a therapist who specializes in setting professional goals. She guides a client toward freeing up your mind space and developing an open mindset in regard to achieving optimal happiness .

Freeing Up Space In Your Mind
The concept of freeing up space in your mind might seem uncomfortable at first because its takes you outside your comfort zone. To some, free mind space represents confusion, doubt and fear. To others, free mind space represents possibilities and opportunities — the world is your oyster.

As my son’s therapist suggested, no mind can be free in a state of anger and disappointment. Once free of the negativity that occupies more space in your mind than you realize, you will be able to consciously free up your thoughts and desires. Space can set free the unlimited power within you for personal and professional growth. Space will also give you focused awareness about what the unconscious mind is identifying as important.

2015-02-12-brainknowledgegraph2ss1920800x450.jpgHere are five suggestions that will free up space in your mind and alter the trajectory of your life’s journey:

1. Down Time Is Up Time
I have always held the idea that when I was not working, there was a reason for it. I call it fallow time — time to regroup and contemplate whatever was on my mind and feel whatever I wanted to feel. I thought of the farmers who planted crops for several years in one field and then let that field go fallow for several years while nature replenished the soil. The purpose of down time is to grow in ways you never thought possible. From the end of November to February, my son has energized his professional and personal space through a huge networking effort, created another business, became energized by a business he already owned, and altered his perception of what makes him happy in work and in life.

2. Stop Being the Judger
We have a saying in our family about those who judge others and situations we know nothing about: Here come the “judgers.” We tell each other to “get over yourself.” Over a lifetime you collect ideas from parents, society, friends, history, teachers, ministers, the media and the Internet. The world is full of opinions, and they are just that — opinions. Other people’s beliefs are not yours. Free your mind to decide what adds value to your life, what makes you happy and what code of ethics you must follow to live a fulfilling life. Don’t live in another person’s head.

3. Learn to Meditate
One of the best ways to create space in your mind, to think freely and with conscious awareness — is to clear the mind and come into a relaxed physical and mental state. This is called meditation. You clear out the mind clutter, dial down stress, manage overwhelming feelings, and energize your environment. Try not to create or invent anything in meditation. Quieting the mind brings mind, body and spirit into balance. Personal empowerment will be the result.

4. Practice Silence
Recently, I have felt absolutely no need to turn on the radio or television or even listen to music or the news. Perhaps it’s because I’m adjusting to a new place: I just moved to a new city and live in an apartment that has very little outside noise. For the first time in decades I’m experiencing silence. When I consciously acknowledge the humming of my printer or the ambient sounds in the room, it becomes part of my silent meditation. I’m actually conscious of my thoughts and have a more creative focus. I hadn’t written in two months because of the move and stress; and then, in a glorious moment of silence one afternoon, when my head was clear, the ideas began to flow and writing became as always second nature.

5. Master What Matters To You
You change, you grow, and you often transform yourself from one thing to another. I was an actress, theater director, screenwriter and finally a yoga and meditation teacher. I was focused and passionate about each of the stages of my life and I was happily involved in all my work. But what if you don’t have any one thing that matters to you — one thing that delivers extraordinary results in every area of your life. How do you find that one thing? The answer is to free your mind and create space to breathe new life into your mind, body and spirit. You can never achieve that state of personal freedom if you don’t let your mind be free.

When you free the mind, you are overcoming distractions that get in the way of what matters most to you personally and professionally. Creating open space in your mind will increase your focus and confidence and enhance the quality of your life.

Remembering
Werner Bendorf
.
There are many stories to tell.
And our Children Love to hear them.
Some tell of Hope, survival and salvation,
Some of Love everlasting.

As I stood at grave of a man I deeply admired and Loved, beyond Belief, I paused to reflect upon the meaning of his Life, and mine. He first appeared to me at the tender age of ten. His name, Werner Bendorf, and his Life is forever engraved in my memory and alive in my Heart.

He still lives in my Life, day by day, between every beat of my Heart, he smiles, he laughs, he is vibrant in my memory and still shares his Love.

My Heart continues to beat because of his deep and abiding Love, because the depth of his Compassion was far greater than anything I had ever known.

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining Stock Photos, Pictures & Royalty-Free ...

He became the Father I never knew.
He was a Father to many young Souls,
and a Savior to me.

Bendorf, Werner jpeg 150182
                   Werner with our Children.

Now, into the mix of Life and Living, arrived a truly remarkable man, a new Scoutmaster, Werner Bendorf. He was much more remarkable than I ever realized at the time, and was to me, a Gift from God and my personal Savior.

And his Story is both remarkable and unbelievable. And I would Love to share it with you.

“I’ve learned that if you pursue happiness,
it will elude you.
But if you focus on your family,
the needs of others, your work,
meeting new people,
and doing the very best you can,
Happiness will find you.”

– author unknown

In growing up, I thought Life was difficult. But I had no idea what difficult meant. Werner shared with me stories from his Life. Then I knew what the word meant. And I became Truly Grateful for the Blessings bestowed upon me by my precious Mother, Marie, and Werner and Donald Graves, Billy Earl Graves, Bruce and Sid Curry, Marshall Alexander, Richard Fletcher, Lester Kuperman, Roger Carter and Allen Bendorf and so very many others.

In recognizing the seemingly impossible obstacles others have had to overcome to survive, we gain perspective and a depth of appreciation.

Later, when I dry my tears, I will share some of the unbelievable stories Werner told me about surviving the evil of the holocaust. He and his wife hid in the attic of a farm house for over three years. From the floor to the peak of the attic was about 3 & 1/2 feet. And the discomforts only began there. I could not believe they had a baby during this time. But more about their inspiring story of survival later.

werner-marie-me
My Mother, Marie, and Werner Bendorf, present the Eagle Scout Award to a younger me (age 12).

Remembering Werner always brings my Heart closer to God. The words of John Newton‘s beloved song, Amazing Grace touch each of us with Truth in a Grace of its own. And I now know that “Home” is a place found deeply embedded in my Heart. It is a place where Werner and his family have resided for many years.

And in his Heart, I found something difficult to believe. After all the suffering, the loss of precious Lives and the horror found everywhere, Werner led me to the threshold of something far more powerful than guns and bombs and torture and the pure evil of murderous minds. He opened his wounded Heart to show me his Forgiveness. And I have never been the same since that day filled me with such Amazing Grace.

“Through many dangers, toils and snares…
we have already come.
T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…
and Grace will lead us home.”
John Newton

Reality Check: Is Our Universe Real?

Human mind abstract composition
Is the world we perceive truly real?

Perhaps our human senses are deceiving us — maybe existence is an illusion, and reality isn’t real.

The idea that everything we know is merely a construction of our minds is investigated in the episode of the Science Channel program “Through the Wormhole,” hosted by Morgan Freeman.

“What is real?” Freeman asks in the show. “How can we be certain that the Universe around us actually exists? And how can we know that the world we see matches what anyone else experiences?”

Human senses are fallible. What people think they perceive is actually filtered and processed by the brain to construct a useful view of the world. Normally, this filtering is helpful, allowing people to sort out important information from the barrage of data that comes in every minute from their environment.

But this filtering ability can become a weakness, as it often does when we’re watching a magician.

“A good magician will tap into universal brain processes that underlie perception,” said Lawrence Rosenblum, a psychologist at the University of California, Riverside and a magician himself. For instance, a magician often directs the audience’s gaze to one hand while he does something with the other. [Eye Tricks: Gallery of Visual Illusions]

But Rosenblum doesn’t see the human tendency to fall for such misdirection as evidence that all of reality exists only in our minds. “Our perceptual system can be fooled, but I do not take that at all to mean that we’re constructing reality,” he told LiveScience.

All in the mind

As members of society, people create a form of collective reality. “We are all part of a community of minds,” Freeman says in the show.

For example, money, in reality, consists of pieces of paper, yet those papers represent something much more valuable. The pieces of paper have the power of life and death, Freeman says — but they wouldn’t be worth anything if people didn’t believe in their power.

Money is fiction, but it’s useful fiction.

Another fiction humans collectively engage in is optimism. Neuroscientist Tali Sharot of University College London studies “the optimism bias”: people’s tendency to generally overestimate the likelihood of positive events in their lives and underestimate the likelihood of negative ones.

In the show, Sharot does an experiment in which she puts a man in a brain scanner, and asks him to rate the likelihood that negative events, such as lung cancer, will happen to him. Then, he is given the true likelihood.

When the actual risks differ from the man’s estimates, his frontal lobes light up. But the brain area does a better job of reacting to the discrepancy when the reality is more positive than what he guessed, Sharot said.

This shows how humans are somewhat hardwired to be optimistic. That may be because optimism “tends to have a lot of positive outcomes,” Sharot told LiveScience. Optimistic people tend to live longer, healthier, more successful lives, she said, and the act of positive thinking can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. “If you think you’re more likely to get promoted, you’re more likely to put in more effort and work long hours,” Sharot said.

But this slightly distorted view of the world can also be a weakness — a person might continue to smoke because they don’t expect to get lung cancer, for example. Being more realistic is important in some cases, Sharot cautioned.

Physical reality

Physicists look beyond the human mind for external reality, but even that reality isn’t absolute truth. Fundamental reality as scientists understand it is based on quantum mechanics, a realm where all manner of strange things occur. An electron can behave as either a particle or a wave, depending on how one measures it. And scientists can measure either a particle’s position or its momentum at any given time, but never both.

“Quantum mechanics is simply the best theory we’ve ever developed,” theoretical physicist David Tong, of Cambridge University, says in the show. But so much of this reality is by definition unknowable. Another physicist featured in the show, Steven Nahn of MIT, says “I absolutely believe reality is a real thing, but that does not mean we understand it.” Nahn was part of the team of scientists who found evidence in 2012 for the Higgs boson, the particle that gives other particles their mass.

The universe may turn out to have more dimensions than we know about, where fundamental forces behave very differently than how we perceive them. For example, gravity is the weakest of the four fundamental forces, but in other dimensions, it could be just as strong. “Things would be very different in this hidden reality,” Freeman says. [6 Weird Facts About Gravity]

The universe could even be a kind of hologram. The amount of information that can be stored in a region of space is proportional to the region’s surface area, rather than its volume – a property known as the holographic principle. One possible implication is that reality is actually two-dimensional, and the three-dimensional world is merely an illusion, which would explain some of the wackiness of quantum mechanics.

All of these views of the world — those that we perceive in our minds, and those that physicists discover in the universe — are flavors of reality. What humans perceive as reality may be no more than an illusion. But in the end, maybe that doesn’t matter.

The Greater Power within You
by newmessage.org
click here to read more

People everywhere are carrying a greater power within themselves, a power that they have not yet discovered. It is a deeper Intelligence that the Creator of all Life has given to each person.

This deeper Intelligence does not function like your intellect. It is not conditioned by the world. It is not subject to doubt and fear, confusion, resentment or anger. It is quiet. It is clear. It is powerful. It cannot be persuaded by any force or power, for it only answers to God.

This greater Intelligence is called Knowledge, and it lives within you, beneath the surface of your mind. Every day Knowledge is giving you counsel – to protect you, to guide you, to lead you. But if you are living at the surface of your mind, caught up in the turbulence of the surface, like the turbulence at the surface of the ocean, you will not hear these messages. You will not feel this greater presence within yourself. You will not recognize Knowledge’s warnings and direction.

Arctic Wolf - Bing Wallpaper Download

People try to keep themselves constantly stimulated – radio and television, books and endless conversation, keeping themselves at the surface of their mind, where they cannot feel the presence of Knowledge or the power of Knowledge, where they cannot hear or respond to the guidance that Knowledge is providing for them.

Perhaps once in a while they will feel a deeper inclination. They will recognize a sign or have a profound feeling about something, but these experiences are often intermittent and are often misinterpreted. Even people who feel that they are intuitive by nature often misinterpret the signs that they are receiving, trying to have everything fit in with what they want, to fulfill their desires and their goals, or to support a philosophy they have about life. So while many people do respond to the power and the presence of Knowledge, often they misinterpret its signs, thinking it is something else.

silhouette of bridge and pair of lovers on city background | Royalty ...

the greater power of love

Some people think that every sign from within themselves must be about love, when in fact Knowledge is warning you about things. It is alerting you to the presence of danger. It is trying to restrain you from making critical mistakes, or from giving your life away to people or things that have no real value or future.

This is love also – the guidance of love, the restraint of love, the warnings from love. Yet if you think love is all about happiness and peace and pleasantness, then you do not understand the real power and potency of love. The love that a parent has for their child, the concern a parent will have for their child and the parents’ attempt to protect their child from harm, danger or damaging influences represent the kind of love that lives within you.

Legal Appeal Stock Photos, Pictures & Royalty-Free Images - iStock

How can you experience this Knowledge, which holds for you your greater purpose for coming into the world and can teach you to navigate the difficult times ahead under any kind of circumstances? How can you experience this for yourself?

You must learn to become still. You must learn to listen deep within yourself, not just for moments here or there, but on a more regular basis, as part of your Spiritual practice. When you come to pray, do not simply ask for things, but learn to listen. God has already placed the answer within you, but it is deep within you, and you must go beneath the surface of your mind to experience it.

Nice Flower Free Stock Photo - Public Domain Pictures

Like the ocean, the surface is turbulent and erratic, always changing, but deep down inside, deep within the ocean, there are strong currents that are moving the waters of the world. Your mind is like this. At the surface, it is swept up by the dangers and concerns of your outer life. It is persuaded and influenced and impacted by the world around you – by the opinions of other people, by the requirements of your life, by your desires and by your fears. But deep down there is a deeper current of life that is not subject to these outer influences. It is strong. It is permanent. It has a true direction. It is moving your life.

Feel the greater intelligenceAs you learn to take the Steps to Knowledge, you will learn to feel the presence of this greater Intelligence. And over time, you will learn to correctly discern its signs and its messages, and to accept its presence and its power in your life.

This is how God will speak to you. This is how God will influence you to protect you and to guide you towards leading and experiencing a greater life in the world – a life in service to the world, a life that is connected to the real world around you. This is the greatest discovery in life, and it is awaiting you.

Already, you have experienced the power and the presence of Knowledge at moments in your life when you felt an overwhelming desire to take a certain kind of action, or a concern about an event before it happened, or a concern about a loved one, only to find that that concern was well justified.

Nice Sunset On the Beach Stock Footage Video (100% Royalty-free ...

There is a power within you that is wise. It is moving you forward in some ways and holding you back in others. It represents your deeper conscience, the conscience that God has placed within you. You may ask God for miracles. You may ask God to intervene in your life. But God has put the answer in you already: the power and the presence of Knowledge, the deeper eternal Mind within you. It alone knows who you are and why you are here, who you must meet in this life and what you are here ultimately to contribute in service to humanity and to the world.

You carry the great endowment within yourself. It is waiting to be discovered. It is waiting for you to take the Steps to Knowledge, and to build the wisdom that you will need to have to carry this Knowledge out into the world, to protect this Knowledge and to discern its guidance and to experience its gifts.

the greater power in you is wiseThis is the Blessing that the Creator of all life has given to you and to each person. And the extent to which Knowledge can be experienced and expressed in this world, the world will be blessed, great disasters will be prevented, and humanity will continue to move in a positive direction.

This is the antidote to evil. This is the Blessing for the world, a Blessing that lives within you.

Beautiful Orchid Flowers Blooming in Stock Footage Video ...This Is Scientific Proof

That Happiness Is A Choice

One theory in psychology research suggests that we all have a happiness “set-point” that largely determines our overall well-being. We oscillate around this set point, becoming happier when something positive happens or the opposite, afterwards returning to equilibrium.

But this set-point, to a certain extent, can be reset. Although our general mood levels and well-being are partially determined by factors like genetics and upbringing, roughly 40 percent of our Happiness is within our control, according to some experts, and a large body of research in the field of positive psychology has shown that happiness is a choice that anyone can make. As psychologist William James put it, “The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human can alter his life by altering his attitude.”

Here are eight ways you can take control of your own happiness.

Simply try.

happiness

A little effort can go a long way in increasing happiness. Two small experimental studies, published in the Journal of Positive Psychology, found that simply trying to be happier could actually elevate mood and well-being. In one study, two groups of students listened to “happy” music – one group was instructed to make a concerted effort to feel happier, while the other group was instructed not to actively try to lift their mood. The group that tried to feel happy experienced the most elevated moods after listening to the music.

Make Happiness your number-one goal.

People who are happy choose to make happiness among their top goals in life, according to psychologist Tom G. Stevens, Ph.D., author of You Can Choose to Be Happy.

“Choose to take advantage of opportunities to learn how to be happy,” Stevens told WebMD. “For example, reprogram your beliefs and values. Learn good self-management skills, good interpersonal skills, and good career-related skills. Choose to be in environments and around people that increase your probability of happiness. The persons who become the happiest and grow the most are those who also make truth and their own personal growth primary values.”

Linger on those little, positive moments.

coffee

According to Rick Hanson, neuropsychologist and author of Hardwiring Happiness, our brains are wired to scout for all that’s bad – as he puts it, the brain is like velcro for negative experiences and teflon for positive ones. This “negativity bias” causes the brain to react intensely to bad news, compared to how it responds to good news. But we can counter the brain’s negativity bias – which triggers us to form stronger bad memories than good ones – by appreciating and lingering on those tiny, positive moments.

“People don’t recognize the hidden power of everyday experiences,” Hanson told The Huffington Post. “We’re surrounded by opportunities — 10 seconds here or 20 seconds there — to just register useful experiences and learn from them. People don’t do that when they could.”

Choose mindfulness.

meditation

The secret to happiness could be as simple (and difficult) as becoming more mindful. Meditation – a practice that anyone can do, anywhere, so long as they’re willing to sit and try to silence the mind – is thought to be a happiness-booster.

University of Wisconsin psychology professor Richard Davidson found in his research that a meditation practice might help to shift brain activity from the right frontal area of the brain (associated with depression, anxiety and worry) to the left, which has been found to correlate with feelings of happiness, excitement, joy and alertness.

Smile your way to happiness.

success and motivation

The secret to boosting your mood could be as simple as making yourself smile. A Michigan State University study found that workers who smiled as a result of cultivating positive thoughts exhibited improved mood and less withdrawal. Fake smiling, on the other hand, resulted in worse moods and withdrawal from work.

Practice gratitude.

gratitude

Cultivating thankfulness and gratitude is a scientifically-backed way to increase happiness, and it’s firmly within your control to choose to be more grateful.

Grateful people tend to appreciate simple pleasures, defined as “those pleasures in life that are available to most people,” according to a report in the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality.

Pursue happiness, find happiness — and success.

success

Conventional thinking has it that pursuing success will lead to happiness, but research has shown that it may be just the opposite. Pursuing Happiness leads not only to happiness itself, but also to success, according to Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage.

In his 12 years researching happiness at Harvard, Achor found that cultivating a positive mindset could boost well-being and improve workers’ performance on many levels, from productivity to creativity and engagement.

“People who cultivate a positive mind-set perform better in the face of challenge,” he wrote in Harvard Business Review. “I call this the ‘happiness advantage’ — every business outcome shows improvement when the brain is positive.”

Let yourself be Happy.

happiness and dancing

Bronnie Ware, a palliative care nurse who spent years working with elderly people on their deathbeds, noticed a common theme that came up repeatedly among her patients at the end of their lives: They regretted not “letting” themselves be happy.

Ware, the author of The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying, wrote in a Huffington Post blog:

Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again … Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.

Practice compassion.

restoring balance

Want to increase your brain’s capacity for happiness? Try meditating on compassion. Brain-scanning studies on French monk Matthieu Ricard found that when he was practicing Loving-kindness meditation, his brain produced gamma waves “never reported before in the neuroscience literature.” Ricard has the largest capacity for happiness ever recorded, thanks to neuroplasticity.

“Meditation is not just blissing out under a mango tree but it completely changes your brain and therefore changes what you are,” Ricard told the New York Daily News.

Knowledge is power,
and LIFE.

If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you,
you haven’t understood it yet.

Neils Bohr

The properties of this Universe
can now better be described
by laws that govern
information,
not by laws that govern
material physical matter.

Yes,
that matters.

We find this is now true
for the World of special relativity,
and the quantum World.

Using principles in quantum theory
we will enable the teleportation of information,
and more importantly,
energy.

And,
what we Human Beings are
at our very essence,
is a vibrational Being made up of
pure energy,
and collectively as the Human Race,
how we vibrate
creates the Reality
around us.

So,
by exploiting fluctuations in quantum energy
found in entangled particles,
physicists may be able to inject energy in one particle,
and extract it in another particle
located many light-years away.

This will lead
to far out new developments
in the distribution of energy,
and new ideas in the relationship
between quantum energy
and information.

A team of scientists in 1993
gave consideration to what was once thought
impossible.
They calculated that teleportation could work
using quantum physics.

“Whatever the mind can conceive
and Believe,
the mind can achieve.”
Napoleon Hill

Quantum teleportation
harnesses laws related to
the phenomena of entanglement,
which enables us to transmit
particle-sized pieces of information
across unbelievable vast distances
in an instant.

Entanglement can be understood
as the link between two objects
which makes them behave as a single object,
instantaneously
regardless of their location,
even if
they are Galaxies apart.

The phenomenon of entanglement
was first proposed by Albert Einstein and others
in the 1930’s.
At the time many people questioned the validity
of entanglement,
including Einstein.
But over the years,
through various experiments,
researchers generated entangled particles
and supported the theory.
.
Researchers entangled particles
and sent them to different locations miles apart.
They measured the state of one particle,
and found the entangled twin
displayed horizontal polarization
with its faithful partner.

Yes,
“we are one”
means far, far more
than we can imagine.

My Dear Friends,
our journey to develop quantum computers,
which is central to quantum entanglement
and
entangled teleportation,
is QUICKLY headed toward realization.
Physicists have now been able to demonstrate
quantum teleportation
between two computer chips
for the first time.

When the Human Mind
expresses the very best in the Human Heart,
all of Nature
becomes transcendental art.

We are floating in space,
on a tiny round rock.
But our minds
are also floating
in our imaginations,
with special feelings
that we cannot seem to describe.

 We can,
by the Grace of our Lord,
realize our Wishes and Hopes and Dreams.
We can truly be
who we want to be,
and where we want
to be.
.
We are rapidly moving away
from the now
and into the future,
where our technologies can do
anything
we could ever want to do.
And we can do so,
because we are
Children of God.

This new scientific breakthrough
with the concept of teleportation
using quantum physics,
simply means that information
was passed between the computer chips,
linking two particles,
not by physical connections,
but through quantum entanglement.
.
We are headed
to the Stars.

And the Universe is filled
with far more Stars
than we have ever imagined in the past.
Today,
the observable Universe
is estimated to contain more than two Trillion galaxies,
with hundreds of Billions of Stars in each one,
which is an increase from what we previously believed,
thought to exist 
in the recent past.

And the number of Galaxies
may actually be
infinite.

The famous “Jim twins,”
separated soon after birth back in the 1940s,
lived parallel lives,
even though they grew up miles apart.
When they were reunited at the age of 39,
it was discovered that numerous similarities
were in their Lives,
including the names of their sons, wives, and pets,
their preferences for Chevrolet cars and carpentry,
and much, much more.

This kind of parallel existence
happens at the quantum level.
The electrons, photons, and other physical particles
that make up our known and unknown Universe,
are linked.
The state of Being,
observed in one particle,
is identical in the other.
That connection, the entanglement,
remains across vast and incomprehensible
distances

Entangled particles
are so closely related,
that there is no need even for
communication.
They can be thought of as one object,
because
they are.

Having a better understanding
of the infinite possibilities
and surreal nature of reality,
can help to draw our diverse Lives
together –
with each other,
and with our Lord.

We can escape
the confines of a narrow mental focus
and small-mindedness,
and fly through the Beautiful Reality
Created by God,
and listen to the Universe
sing.

The mesmerizing
Nature of what is becoming more and more real
and of what lies upon the horizon
of our future,
is fine tuning our True identity
and adding clarity
to our relationship to the
Infinite Love and Being
of God.

My Friend,
if we try and fail,
just keep trying,
taking small simple steps forward.
Our Dreams have everlasting value.
Keep moving toward them,
regardless of the challenges and setbacks. 
Moving forward with our Dreams
starts with but a first and single
step.

Yes,
we are one –
with God,
and with one another,
with all of Creation,
and with ourselves.
The Word of God
was present at the beginning of Time
and runs through existence
all the way
to Eternity.

How Blessed
we are,
WE
Children of God.

Goodnight.

Sometimes stress can take you by surprise, welling up and derailing your day. Fortunately, there are simple methods for coping with instances of acute stress. These strategies can very quickly calm stress demons and allow you to move forward with your day. Practiced regularly, these techniques can also be sources of longer-term stress relief.

Method 1

Engaging Your Senses

  1. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 1
    1
    Use aromatherapy. The section of your brain that processes scent is close to the area that controls your emotions. As a result, happy smells can quickly and easily influence your mood.
    • Rub a few drops of essential oils onto your wrists. Lavender is calming, lemon and orange scents are great for a quick energy boost, and frankincense will help you instantly feel more at ease.
    • You can also use an essential oil diffuser in your home or office.
     
  2. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 2
    2
    Drink tea. Black tea has been shown to reduce cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and promote feeling of relaxation. Even the ritual of preparing a cup of tea can be soothing. Furthermore, tea helps to keep you hydrated, which is great for both body and mind.
     
  3. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 3
    3
    Chew gum. One study shows that chewing gum can reduce anxiety and improve alertness. This method could not be simpler! Keep some gum in your bag or your desk at work. When you find yourself feeling stressed, bust out some gum and chew until you feel a lift in your mood.
    • Select a gum that is low in sugar, as this will be better for your teeth.
     
  4. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 4
    4
    Listen to nature sounds. Nature sounds (such as a babbling brook, a crackling fire, or bugs and birds chirping in the woods) can almost instantly reduce your stress level.
    • Look for a cd, app, or podcast that has nature sounds you enjoy. Listen to these as stress prevention, or turn them on when you begin to feel overwhelmed.
     
  5. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 5
    5
    Listen to music. Music can help to relieve stress, reduce pain, and enhance your overall quality of life. Try listening to some music when you are feeling stressed to quickly and easily shift your mood.
    • Create a stress-free playlist by selecting upbeat songs that you enjoy.
    • Anytime you feel stress creeping up, pull up your playlist and hit play.
Method 2

Engaging Your Body

  1. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 6
    1
    Take a shower. Showering is a wonderful way to reset, interrupt anxiety, and reduce stress. Particularly if you’ve been stuck in a slump, just hopping in the shower is an excellent way to practice self-care and give your self-esteem a boost. Furthermore, the physical sensations of showering (hot water, happy smells) are excellent for relieving stress.
     
  2. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 7
    2
    Lie with your legs up the wall. “Legs up the wall pose” or “viparita karani” is a wonderful yoga pose for reducing stress. This posture improves circulation to your head and upper body. It also provides rest for your central nervous system.
    • Sit down on the floor and scoot your bottom as close as possible to the wall.
    • Relax your upper body to the floor.
    • Bring your legs up in the air to rest against the wall.
    • Stay here for ten minutes.
     
  3. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 8
    3
    Dance. Dancing is excellent for relieving stress in two ways: it exposes you to upbeat music and it provides all the benefits of exercise. You can achieve these benefits in just a few minutes. Anytime you begin to feel stressed, get up and dance for the length of one song. You can even schedule these mini-dance breaks into your workday to provide a regular release.
     
  4. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 9
    4
    Go for a walk. Any form of aerobic exercise has been shown to calm nerves and improve moods. Walking can be a quick and simple way to receive these benefits. One study shows that a brisk 30 minute walk can be as effective as taking a tranquilizer. But even a 5 or 10 minute stroll can do wonders for relieving stress.
    • Any time you feel stressed out, go for a quick walk.
    • Work your way up to walking for 30 minutes at a time.
    • Do this a few times a week (or even every day) to minimize stress and feel good.

    5
    Give yourself a massage. Massage has been proven to relieve stress and promote well being. But you don’t need to visit a professional! You can get these same benefits by massaging yourself. Start with an easy massage for your eyes. (This is perfect if you have been staring at a computer.)
    • Close your eyes.
    • Place your thumbs under your eyebrows.
    • Apply pressure and move your thumbs in tiny circles, moving towards the outsides of your brows.
    • Continue this movement around your eyes.
Method 3

Engaging Your Mind

  1. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 11
    1
    Be present. Anxiety often occurs when we worry about the future or past. Spend a few minutes actively focusing on the present. Choose one simple task, such as washing the dishes or making a cup of tea. Take five minutes to focus intently on that one task, taking in as many details as you can. At the end of these five minutes, you will find yourself more at ease.
     
  2. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 12
    2
    Breathe deeply. Taking deep breaths is an excellent way to bring your focus into the present moment. Furthermore, focused breathing has been shown to slow your heart rate and lower your blood pressure, which both have a profound effect on your stress level.
    • Take 5-10 slow deep breaths.
    • Concentrate on making your inhale the same length as your exhale.
    • Inhale through your nose and exhale through either your nose or mouth.
     
  3. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 13
    3
    State an affirmation. An affirmation is a positive statement about yourself. Affirmations can be written out, or recited in your mind, but they have the greatest impact when spoken aloud.
    • Prepare some affirmations ahead of time. Do you experience anxiety when you try to write? A good option might be “I am a good writer.”
    • When anxiety and stress bubble up for you, calmly state your affirmation.
    • It may help to look in the mirror as you do so.
    • Other affirmation ideas include: I am a good person; I deserve to be happy; I am good at my job; and I am beautiful.

    Laugh. Laughter has been proven to stimulate the production of beta-endorphins in the brain. In fact, even anticipating a laugh can stimulate this production. If you find yourself in a stressful moment, take some time to locate something funny. Even if you don’t laugh out loud, the anticipation might be enough!
    • Look for a humorous video.
    • Recall a funny experience with friends.
    • Listen to a comedy podcast.

    Perform a “body scan.” A body scan is an easy meditative practice that can relieve stress and help you feel grounded. This can be done in as little as 30 seconds. The idea is to bring awareness to each part of the body; not to judge or even to change it.
    • If you have space, lie down on the floor. (If you don’t have space, that’s okay. You can perform the body scan seated in a chair.)
    • Close your eyes and begin by noticing any part of your body that is touching the floor (or chair).
    • Relax any part of your body that is holding tension (usually the jaw, neck, and shoulders).
    • Starting at your toes, begin scanning your body, part by part.
    • Imagine that you are taking a tour of your body, not evaluating, simply observing.
    • End your scan at the top of your head.
