Teleportation Will Work / How to Relieve Stress Quickly / School Calendar

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. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 10
    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.
     
  4. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 14
    4
    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.
     
  5. Image titled Relieve Stress Quickly Step 15
    5
    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.

and the Soul
with few words,
say
what needs to be said,
with words
never spoken.
Such is
never,
that is
Forever.

 Find
the mirror
of your Child’s
face,
and smile.
Let the Beauty
around you,
become you.

on your face.
It speaks of
God’s Love,
buried deep within,
showing
the Beauty
of Inner Grace.

The door
to Happiness
is open wide.
The waves of the Ocean
gently sway in the way
of Praise and Devotion,
like Poetry in Motion.
There is an Ocean of Love
in the World of Today,
going around and around
and coming your way.
The feeling is everywhere
you look,
and see and say.

My Dear Friends,
we are
the Fire in the Sky,
 the fade from black
we cannot deny,
the Love
God speaks of,
the Stars up Above.

“Here we are
Riding the sky
Painting the night with Sun
You and I,
Mirrors of Light

Twin flames of fire
lit in another Time and Place.

Your Love and Grace,
Past and present now embrace.
Worlds collide in inner space.
Unstoppable,
the Song we play.”
Thomas Bergersen

the Love in your eyes speaks,
and you need say
nothing at all.

we call
the Human Heart.

The seemingly vague vestige
of your Child’s happy face
 is always wafting mutely,
sliding silently through Time and Space
in a gentle breeze
that seems to blow through the
Soul.

where we let our Dreams fly.
Smiling face to smiling face,
within the hatchery of Stars
we carry the Fire of Earth and water,
and feel the Divine within us.
Yes,
the spaces between us,
are the spaces within.

True Genius
is to be

​The new year is often a wonderful time to reflect and consider new goals to support individual improvement. A common New Year’s resolution is one that focuses on physical health and wellness. However, one’s mental health is just as important as one’s physical health. 2020 was a difficult year that impacted many of us emotionally, financially, socially and mentally. That’s why it is especially important to check-in on how you are doing and coping with the many changes in our world – and the beginning of a new year is a great time to do just that.

This year consider prioritizing mental health similar to physical health by doing a “check-up” on your mental wellness. You may find a need to adjust or change some things in your life that can help improve your mental health. Some people might find they need some help from a mental health professional for themselves (or a family member) to process and develop strategies to better cope and deal with life’s many current challenges. Let’s go over some of the benefits of doing that, factors to consider when choosing a mental health professional and some other resources you might find helpful.      

Here are some benefits a mental health care professional can provide you:

  • Assistance with identifying and defining steps that can help you achieve goals.
  • Help with identifying strategies to improve communication with others and your relationships.
  • Help developing coping strategies to better deal with difficult life circumstances.
  • Help learning stress management and problem-solving skills.
  • Help gaining a better understanding of emotions and how to express them in healthy ways.
  • Help addressing and improving problematic behaviors interfering with school, work and relationships.
  • Provides parents with tools to support their children in overcoming difficult life circumstances.
  • Offers a space for people to talk about their feelings and experiences without judgment and with a fresh perspective.

When choosing a mental health professional, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Consider speaking with your child’s school guidance counselor for referrals in your local area.
  • Get a referral from a trusted friend who had a positive experience with a provider.
  • Ask questions of potential providers to determine if they are a good fit, such as their modality, training and approach.
  • Contact insurance to ask for a list of mental health providers covered under your insurance.
  • If financial barriers are present, consider contacting local universities or clinics to determine if they have staff who would be willing to work on a sliding scale.  
  • Consider workshops and trainings for parents that focus on teaching new parenting skills to help improve your relationship with your child and strategies to deal with difficult child behaviors. Boys Town offers parenting classes through Common Sense Parenting®: 

There are many great in-person resources available for you to access. Internet and phone applications also offer an amazing array of resources on managing mental health. Here are some websites and apps to consider:

Here are websites where you can read about some reviewed apps that are recommended to help support mental health:

This year give yourself the gift of positive mental health by making it a priority for you and your loved ones. We wish you a blessed and healthy 2021!

God’s Love For You Is Deathless / Bill Kincaid’s Wizard’s Gambit / Why is Coffee Good For You? / TUESDAY, Jan. 5 – We Begin Again

Person Holding White Daisy Flower

“Nothing
can be Loved or hated
unless it is first understood.”

Leonardo da Vinci.

God’s Love for you
is deathless.

The Blessings of Blissful moments
are Lived and Loved
on the pathway to Happiness,
as we struggle with all the misfortunes
of this World,
and Pray to God
to shield us from harm.

In the brightest of days
and the darkest of nights,
amidst your Happiest moments

and gloomiest hours,
there can be a Soft Breeze flowing
through your Life,

the Breath of God,
the Spirit of the Lord
Passing By.

All
that is needed
is Prayer.

The Banner of our purpose
for existence, for Love, for Life,
floats calmly in this Gentle Breeze,
 of God’s Unbounded Love for us.

We may have unlimited confidence
in the Love and Care
God will have
for His Precious Children
of Faith.

Such Faith
is simple
and profound.
It is the same
Faith,
that may be found
in the Love
your Children feel
for you.

Blotchy Background

Feel gratified to God
for the Beauty all around,
found in every Leaf
and every Tree,
in everything that was,
and is,
and is to be.
.

The Hope
in all our future years,

the only Hope
there may be,
resides in our Love
for each other,
the Love
God has given

to you
and me.

 The Love
of our Lord
is kept among even the dimmest memories
of Childhood.
In the Maternal Care
we share,
is the warmth and tender
caress
of all the Love
that is there.

Yes,
the Beauty
of all things
can be beheld
by you.
This knowledge,
this awareness,
gives you
Birth
anew.

There are words Sacred
in number
that let us explore
unfettered
the Eternal Nature
of God’s Love.
They are here,
they are real.
And they reside
within the Holy Word
of God.

In the Eyes of God
every
teardrop is timeless,
every smile
remains in the Heart.
You
are Forever Eternal
in the Love of God
that Created you.

lily flower

In every Flower we see,
Blossoms the Love
that Flows
Eternally.
In
the Natural World,
not built by
you and me,
is
the Love of God,
painted
on every Living Thing
that dwells
in the Forest of His Heart,
for you
and for me.

The Holy Word of God
is filled with His Promises
to provide the rest we need.
Our Precious Father
in Heaven Above
is an Endless Source of
Peace and Strength.

                       Painted on every Living Thing.

And
rest is important

to our Spiritual Walk with the Lord.
Mental and physical rest
allows our mind and our body,
and, importantly, our Spirit
to renew
and begin again each Blessed Gift
of Day,
with renewed strength
and purpose.

My Dear Friends,
during this precarious time 
of worry and stress,
rest
is important to your physical Being,

and
your Spiritual Walk

with the Lord.

Many people today

don’t appreciate the true value
of rest,
physical and Spiritual.
.
 God is an endless source of
Peace and Strength.

“In order for God’s Strength
to manifest and present in our Lives
we must have

Abstract Colors Fractal Colorful

There is a fantastic
book by Bill Kincaid:
Wizard’s Gambit.

This is Bill’s first
science fiction/fantasy book.

The central figure is
Max Strider,
the sole survivor
of a mission to explore
a distant planet
classified as EVE (Earth Virtual Equivalent).
But there are differences:
like Fire-breathing Dragons & Wizards
who shoot lightning bolts and
work powerful magic.

Will Max’s knowledge of
science and technology
prevail against the dangers
he will face?

.Bill is a Dear Friend
and a wonderful author.
He is also
our school attorney
and
my former debate partner
when we were students at
Hardin-Simmons University.

coffee chartWhy is Coffee Good For You?
Here Are 7 Reasons
By Kris Gunnars
To read the full article

In recent years and decades, scientists have studied the effects of coffee on various aspects of health and their results have been nothing short of amazing. Here are 7 reasons why coffee may actually be one of the healthiest beverages on the planet.

1. Coffee Can Make You Smarter

The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which is a stimulant and the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world. Caffeine’s primary mechanism in the brain is blocking the effects of an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine. By blocking the inhibitory effects of Adenosine, caffeine actually increases neuronal firing in the brain and the release of other neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine.

Many controlled trials have examined the effects of caffeine on the brain, demonstrating that caffeine can improve mood, reaction time, memory, vigilance and general cognitive function.

2. Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat and Improves Physical Performance

There’s a good reason why you will find caffeine in most commercial fat burning supplements.

Caffeine raises metabolism and increases the oxidation of fatty acids.

3. Coffee May Drastically Lower Your Risk of Type II Diabetes

Type II diabetes is a lifestyle-related disease that has reached epidemic proportions, having increased 10-fold in a few decades and now afflicting about 300 million people.

In observational studies, coffee has been repeatedly associated with a lower risk of diabetes. The reduction in risk ranges from 23% all the way up to 67%.

A massive review article looked at 18 studies with a total of 457.922 participants. Each additional cup of coffee per day lowered the risk of diabetes by 7%. The more coffee people drank, the lower their risk.

4. Coffee May Lower Your Risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Not only can coffee make you smarter in the short term, it may also protect your brain in old age.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder in the world and a leading cause of dementia.

In prospective studies, coffee drinkers have up to a 60% lower risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Parkinson’s is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by death of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain. Coffee may lower the risk of Parkinson’s by 32 – 60%.

5. Coffee May be Extremely Good For Your Liver

The liver is a remarkable organ that carries out hundreds of vital functions in the body.

It is very vulnerable to modern insults such as excess consumption of alcohol and fructose. Cirrhosisis the end stage of liver damage caused by diseases like alcoholism and hepatitis, where liver tissue has been largely replaced by scar tissue.

Multiple studies have shown that coffee can lower the risk of cirrhosis by as much as 80%, the strongest effect for those who drank 4 or more cups per day.

Coffee may also lower the risk of liver cancer by around 40%.

6. Coffee May Decrease Your Risk of Dying

In two very large prospective epidemiological studies, drinking coffee was associated with a lower risk of death by all causes.

This effect is particularly profound in type II diabetics, one study showing that coffee drinkers had a 30% lower risk of death during a 20 year period.

7. Coffee is Loaded With Nutrients and Antioxidants

Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals.

A cup of coffee contains:

6% of the RDA for Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5).
11% of the RDA for Riboflavin (Vitamin B2).
2% of the RDA for Niacin (B3) and Thiamine (B1).
3% of the RDA for Potassium and Manganese.

May not seem like much, but if you drink several cups of coffee per day then this quickly adds up.

But this isn’t all. Coffee also contains a massive amount of antioxidants.

In fact, coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants in the western diet, outranking both fruits and vegetables combined.

Even though coffee in moderate amounts is good for you, drinking way too much of it can still be harmful.

To make sure to preserve the health benefits, don’t put sugar or anything nasty in your coffee! If it tends to affect your sleep, then don’t drink it after 2 p.m.

If anything, coffee may literally be the healthiest beverage on the planet.

And so, my friends, instead of allowing your children to drink deadly and addictive soft drinks, why not introduce them to something healthy? Yes, like coffee.

10 Surprising Tips for Managing Stress
from our friends at Canyon Ranch
click here to read more

Effective stress management has become more important than ever. What do you normally do when stress is getting to you? Many of us turn to exercise or talk to a therapist when feelings of anger, anxiety or frustration arise. But did you know that taking a different route to work or sleeping on a fresh set of sheets can also help alleviate stress?

Try some of these unusual techniques the next time you need to clear your mind or calm yourself down.

Focus on Your Breath
When you’re stressed, your heart rate can increase, which can make you feel even more stressed. Try this simple exercise:
Focus your attention on your heartbeat for a few seconds. Then put your hand on your belly to feel it rise and fall as you breathe, and say, This is my body breathing. As you inhale and exhale deeply, notice your heart rate slow and feelings of calmness grow.

Rewrite Your Script
Ever have the same negative thoughts so frequently that they become a never-ending tape-loop, playing over and over again in your mind? I’ll never get everything done. I know they’re going to fire me. I’m going to get sick.

When you start thinking worst-case scenarios, ask yourself if your concerns are based on facts or emotions. If the latter, imagine that these thoughts are part of a script that you’re writing, then change the lines. This can help create some distance between you and your worries, and remind you that you are in control of the story of your life.

Or … Channel Your Inner Storyteller
As an alternative, invent a fairytale ending to your “story.” It’s an entertaining distraction and can help you recognize that fantasies—both bad and good—are just that. The reality of your situation probably lies somewhere in between.
Tune Into a New Voice
If you can’t turn off the stressful negative talk in your head, try replacing it with talk that’s positive. Music can help, but listening to an audio book or an interesting interview can provide you with actual dialogue to focus on.

Control What You Can Control
Worrying about major life or world events is one kind of stress, but equally as bothersome are the daily, chronic stressors that cause aggravation and tension. To avoid irksome traffic, take an alternate route to work that might be longer but less crowded. If you find yourself too wound up to sleep after watching the evening news, skip it in favor of a lighthearted sitcom.

Find the Funny
Research shows that laughter reduces stress hormones and triggers some of the same mood-boosting effects as exercise. So do whatever tickles your funny bone.

Make Time for Play
Watch young children at play. They truly live in the moment, not worrying about the future or the past. Take a cue from them and play at something in which you can become totally engrossed.
Start a card game, set aside time to do a craft project or draw a picture. Not an artist? No problem. Pick a simple image, like a tree or have fun doodling in a notebook. Don’t worry about how it turns out, simply focus on the act of drawing—the way your pen or pencil moves across the paper as the image takes shape.

Nurture Another Living Thing
It is easier to limit the time spent focusing on your own stressful thoughts when you’re busy attending to something or someone else. Bake cookies for a neighbor, play with a pet or get outside and garden.

Engage Your Senses
Senses play a role in your levels of stress. Gentle music, calming scents like lavender and dim lighting can alleviate stress.
And touch is no exception. Wearing something soft, splurging on a cozy set of sheets or even just keeping a piece of your favorite fabric in your pocket to hold or stroke occasionally can make your feel comforted and relaxed.

Try Some Tools
Traditional meditation tools—prayer beads, gongs, chanting—can help you focus and relax.
Or experiment with different apps you can download for your smartphone or tablet. There’s even a Zen rock garden app that lets you rake the sand with your fingertips.

and memories
and sounds.
.

all the Beauty
that resonates in our

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

World where YOU
can be Happy
and Loved,

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.”
Kahlil Gibran

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).

Like Rivers of Mercy Never Ceasing / Is Your Electric Blanket Safe? / Friday: At School for Shakespeare Production

Hanging
like a Lantern
in the Sky,
the Sun,
like the Light of Love,
does not deny
what is needed
to rise above the dark
of night,
and give us
sight.

My Dear Friends,
the Sun
never goes down.
It goes around and around.
The Light of the Sun
will
smile upon your Face,
again and again.

The Promise
made by the Sun,
is to shine a Light
upon
YOU.
.
And,
you need to promise,
to shine a Light
upon another Life.
There is always
someone
in need
of
YOU.

With Faith
in the unbroken Circle
that only Time reveals,
YOU
can be Liberated,
by your
Heart.

Each precious Day
you Live,
Life
longs to be
far, far from unknown,
and so very far
from just me.
It longs to be
you and me,
It LOVES to be
we.

Truth
streams down like Rivers of Mercy
never ceasing,

in Blessing the Human Heart,
as we read His Holy Word
and give Praise
to God,
and Worship in His Grace.
.

The path
we follow
may wind through
the valleys
of many
Hearts set adrift.

Let us follow
where He leads.
He knows the meadows
and the mountains.
He knows
the where and the what
we need.

And our need
is simple,
like the Truths
from Above.
We need
Love.

To die
in the Arms of God,
is to be born
in the Warm Embrace
of Pure Love,
and Live
forever and ever.

Goodnight.

“Oh,
I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a Light of
Love.”

Is Your Electric Blanket Safe?
– Mercola.com

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
to care,
in need of the Miracle
of your warm smile,
your kind word,
in need of Love.
 1

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

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.

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.

Power Lines, Electrical Devices
and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation
click here to read more

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,
turn my thoughts aside;

But my Lord goes ahead,
leads whate’er betide.”

                – Rufus H. Cornelius
               Oh, I Want to See Him

“If Life’s essence
is securely hidden,
it may be for a good reason:
should man uncover
many more of its secrets
while he is still Spiritually so immature,
it seems he could do himself
and his World
serious harm.”
Guy Murchie
The Seven Mysteries of Life
An Exploration of Science and Philosophy

There are many stories.
Some
are never read.
Others never written,
and can never be read.

A precious few are created
as your Children
are tucked in bed,
as you kiss them
Goodnight,
on the top
of their head.

And their stories are written
in dreams they have,
where they lay
their little head.

            Hearts speak louder than words.

My Dear Friends,
the Nobility
of the Spirit
resides within.

“And you shall Love
the Lord your God
with all your Heart,
with all your Soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.”
Mark 12:30

We each are clothed
in reflections
all around.
And what we mirror,
tells a story
not our own.
But it is there,
it is to be,
and it remains
for all to see,
Eternally.

And what appears
speaks so loudly,
no one can hear
what voices say,
for this language
is beyond the horizon
of who we are,
what we see,
what we can even imagine
shall ever be.

giraffs

           Who kissed you on top of your head.

It is the Language
of God’s Love
for you
and for me.

And it lives
in the
Dreams we Love,
in reflections all around,
in the mirror
of our Lives,
in a story
that becomes
our own.

Open your Heart
and open your fragile mind.
Accept the Love of God.
Let your Life be
A Love Story.

Let it be.

Let it be.
.
Goodnight.

              In reflections all around.

From
Children’s Hospital Colorado:

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.
