The Inner Peace of Tranquility / A Saner Way

Life is unpredictable.
It is typically filled with
little Joy
and much sorrow.

Our dreams can simply
disappear.
And then
we ask ourselves,
how can we find
the inner peace
of tranquility,
living with such
uncertainty?

My Dear Friends,
you can find
that there is a place
in you,
where you are quiet and calm
and nothing can disturb you.
But it is difficult
to find the way there.

Help
is available.
Please allow me
to share
some truly valuable resources.

One
of the most valuable
I have discovered
is from
www.wikihow.com/Achieve-Inner-Peace.

The following is from
wikihow.com:

Do you want to achieve the calmness and serenity
that comes with inner peace?
Anyone can!
All you need to do is let go
of the stresses and strains
of daily life
and make time to just
be.
.
Finding inner peace is a process
– so take it
one day at a time.

Quiet your mind.
Sit quietly to free and empty your mind of thought.
Rest frequently.
Find a comfortable spot to unwind, relax
or take a nap.
Being well-rested
is crucial to your mental and emotional well-being.

Keep everything simple.
Inner peace is easier to achieve
when you simplify your life
and your to-do list.
Try not to do everything at once.
You can do anything you want,
but you don’t have to do everything
at once.

Take your time.
Achieving inner peace is a process;
take the time to experience and enjoy
your own personal journey.
Don’t be discouraged if the process takes a while;
there is Beauty in the process
of becoming.

if you are recovering from emotional trauma,
allow yourself the TIME
to experience the process of recovery.
You can achieve inner peace
and live a purposeful, self-directed life
when you take the time to recover
fully.

Tranquility
can be difficult to achieve.
It can take
a great deal of
TIME.
.
But you can
ENJOY traveling down
the path to inner peace.
And,
it will require YOU
to learn much more
than you know.

There is Beauty in the process of becoming.

Know Thyself.
this thought, commonly attributed to Socrates,
stems from a more ancient source
and lies at the root of all
philosophy.
.
Know Thyself was written on
the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.
Legend tells that the seven sages of ancient Greece,
philosophers, statesmen and law-givers,
who laid the foundation for western culture,
gathered in Delphi to inscribe “know thyself”
at the entry to its sacred oracle.
The adage subsequently became a touch-stone
for western philosophers,
and extended its reach
as the influence of Greek philosophy expanded.
This site gathers its most profound expressions
and elaborates on their meaning.

The path to inner peace.

Self-knowledge is all-encompassing.
What is learned on one scale of experience
can be applied to all scales.
It is the highest form of knowledge,
surpassing all other knowledge.

Self-knowledge is also timeless,
which means that what is gained in one era,
benefits all subsequent generations.
On this website we have gathered
many expressions of ancient wisdom
that have been articulated by eminent men and women
from all ages, traditions and cultures.

Our compilation reveals the Universal nature
of man’s quest for self-knowledge,
and further shows that no age of mankind
was necessarily any closer or farther
from this quest than any other.

Although we may be technologically more sophisticated
than our ancestors,
the age we inhabit is in the same relationship
as previous eras to this quest.
Therefore, the primary aim of this site
is to benefit from the ancient wisdom
of our ancestors and apply it to our own period.

We will send you email updates
on a contemporary attempt at building
an online community that applies
ancient wisdom in modern times.

Or simply read on to learn more
about the Universal challenge of
self-knowledge.

When asked what was the most difficult thing,
Thales replied, “To know thyself.”
When asked what was easiest,
he replied, “To give advice.”

Since Solon (one of the seven sages)
received his education in Egypt,
the principle of Know Thyself
might well predate the Greeks.
At the same time, the Hindus in the east
developed their system of philosophy
before the Greek civilization,
and knowledge of the Self
took a prominent position in their writings.
(Read more about the history of Know Thyself)

Wherever and whenever the adage originated,
Know Thyself was universally adopted and placed
at the foundation of knowledge,
the corner stone on which the temples of philosophy
should be erected.

“The essence of knowledge is self-knowledge,”
claimed the Greek philosopher Plato.
Centuries before him, the Hindu Upanishads confirmed,
“Enquiry into the truth of the Self is knowledge.”

Leagues away and centuries later,
the Persian poet Rumi wondered,
“Who am I in the midst of all this thought traffic?”
and the American poet Walt Whitman celebrated his Self,
“a simple, separate person.”

Know Thyself through time

This two-word imperative traveled from antiquity
and throughout history to the present day.
Like a golden thread in a multicolored fabric,
Know Thyself wove its course through races and cultures, through religious and secular traditions, spanning spiritual and scientific teachings and appearing in art and literature.

Indeed, the ancient adage was declared
in almost every medium on every continent and in every era.

Know thyself has often been a corner stone
rejected.

“Can one know oneself”
wondered the French poetess George Sand.
Is one ever somebody?
“When will I ever see that Am that I Am?”
lamented the poet Rumi.

Scores of poets and philosophers
dedicated their lives to inquiring about the Self,
seeking its elusive mysteries, digging deep to unearth
that hidden stone without which all construction would be futile.
Some attained remarkable results,
attested to by the legacy of their works.
Others never found an end to their quest.
“I have an inner self of which I was ignorant,”
confesses the Bohemian – Austrian poet Rilke in his diary,
while the ninety-year-old art-historian Bernard Berenson
tells a different story:

Yet,
who is the real I,
where does he hide from ME?

I know who he is not,
but how and what and if at all HE is,
I have never discovered
although for more than seventy years
I have been looking for him.

It is the sincerity of such remarks as Berenson’s
that touch the reader and direct his attention inwards,
asking himself the very questions
these authors posed in their times.

Know Thyself – the essence of knowledge

If the essence of knowledge is self-knowledge,
then this site is an elementary door
to all those in pursuit of this wisdom.
Within these pages and posts are compilations of sayings on
Know Thyself,
the fruition of many hours of research by several individuals.
The quotations compiled are at the reader’s disposal.

Profound sayings on Know Thyself invite
contemplation.

They profess that Truth stands the test of time,
bypassing the ages and connecting us with the authors
who expressed them.
They spark our curiosity to learn more about the men and women who struggled before us, who strove in their times to find a firm foundation of truth,
as we do today.

They prove timelessly relevant and open doors into further inquiry of our true nature.
They confirm that, despite the passage of millennia, man’s struggles have essentially remained the same: man is, and always has been, a being in search of truth and identity.

Moreover, expressions of self-knowledge call us to action.
“‘Know Thyself was written over the portal of the antique world,”
said the Irish writer Oscar Wilde
more than two thousand years after the seven sages inscribed it on the forecourt of their oracle.
“Over the portal of the new world,
Be Thyself’
shall be written.”

Socrates on Know Thyself

The only true wisdom
is in knowing you know
nothing.

“Wisdom begins with wonder,” said Socrates.
Through dialogue, he led his audience to passionate inquiry
of existence and identity.

His speech maintained a humble tone, claiming,
to the surprise of his listeners,
that he knew nothing.
In his mind,
one could not know anything without knowing one’s self.

Thus, the Seven Sages of Greece,
who had inscribed know thyself in the forecourt
of the Delphic oracle a few generations before Socrates,
had challenged all subsequent philosophers to attain self-knowledge before knowing anything else.
Socrates embraced this ancient challenge humbly:

I am not yet able, as the Delphic inscription has it, to know myself; so it seems to me ridiculous, when I do not yet know that, to investigate irrelevant things.

Care first about the greatest perfection of the Soul.

“What I want to discover at present,”
said Socrates,
“is the art which devotes its attention
to precision, exactness, and the fullest
truth.”

His philosophical inquiry was, therefore,
dedicated to truth,
foremost the truth about himself.
By publicly admitting his self-ignorance,
he made his audience aware of their own.

My Dear Friends,
there will be storms to face,
and sometimes tragedies.
But with Faith in our Loving God
and with trust in His Divine help,
we can confidently say,
“It will be well with my Soul.”

Goodnight.

A Saner Way

If we were to search throughout the history of human existence, in every nook and cranny on Planet Earth, we would not find one perfectly sane mind. Some form and degree of madness (in both senses of the word) is and has always been a pandemic disease among our species, from which no one has been immune, or has ever been known to fully recover.

And yet, despite the monumental ramifications of this astounding fact, it is rarely noted by even the most serious thinkers. It seems that we are unwilling to experience the inevitable humbling that must come with admitting, even to ourselves, that as a species, we human beings too often think, feel and behave as though we were not in our right minds.

Until we lift the veil of denial that blinds us to this premise, we will continue to go about our lives in utter confusion as to why we do the crazy things we do. But when we admit to ourselves, and one another, that the reason we behave as though we are mad is because we are, our confusion disappears.

We understand why we choose, of our own free will, to sacrifice clean air, water and food essential for our survival for petty pleasures that are too embarrassing to list and are sure to be the death of us; why we hide from one another behind a lifetime of disguises and lies; why we settle our disputes by fighting people we do not know, under orders from others we do not know, in defense of what we do not know is so; and why the demons of depression, obsession, repression, anxiety, guilt, apathy, hate and jealousy haunt our days and nights.

The many symptoms of our shared illness are easily seen on any street corner, in homes, schools, work places, courtrooms or anywhere else human behavior is on display.

But the most serious is our seeming obsession with some form of violence. What greater proof that the state of our minds is off-kilter than the fact that we commit, condone and applaud gruesome acts of violence, on a daily basis… from slaughterhouses and laboratories to war zones? What else, but mental illness, would explain why Spiritual beings, capable of reason and compassion, choose cruelty and violence instead?

Evolving beyond our lust for violence is the essential first step toward our desperately-needed cure. Only by rising above our willingness to terrorize, be terrorized by or watch anyone else terrify or be terrified by anyone else, will we, for the first time in our history, feel safe enough to lift the veil that hides our saner selves. When we do, we will discover that although we are surely mad, we are not only mad.

Each of us is empowered with a reasonable mind and a compassionate heart… the golden pillars that frame the pathway to a saner way of living.

When we embark on that pathway, we come face to face with veganism, which is non-violence in action. The concept, as simple as it is profound, is that the violent, unbelievably cruel custom of enslaving, torturing and killing our fellow earthlings must and will end when we stop supporting it, and we will do so when we see the innocent victims for who they really are… mysterious beings like us, who feel pain and Love life as we do, and have done us no harm.

When we open our minds to reason and compassion, we will see with saner eyes, that their precious bodies are not ours to bend and break to our will for the sake of our pleasure, comfort, convenience or any other excuse our unreasonable, apathetic thinking can conjure up.

Without veganism, we will remain trapped in our madness.

With it, we will be the sanest we have ever been.

 Beings like us, who feel pain and Love life as we do.

The Time Of True Thanksgiving / Dangers of Ritalin

Ask "RJ" if he is happy with his Christmas present.

Ask “R.J.” if he is happy with his Christmas present.

For me,
Christmas is the time
Of true Thanksgiving.
Expressing our gratitude
To our Creator,
And to each other,
For our bountiful Blessings
Is difficult and rewarding.

Ian looks for RJ's gift.

Ian looks for R.J.’s gifts.

 We can never say Enough
To reflect our abiding Love
For each other,
And for the everlasting Love
Of our Father in Heaven Above.


But let us,
By the Grace of God,

Continue to try.

Allow me to share with you

The Christmas poem from the past
That is the most viewed.

OK. Here it is!

I dedicated it in

I was not aware
Of the Eternal Love

Of God,
Until I looked
Into

Their Loving Eyes.

Island of Dreams
   © 2014 William C. Anderson

From the impossibility of coming
From nothing, it seems
We have risen to a vision
Of unbelievably beautiful dreams.

Spun from the Fabric
Of God’s Eternal Love,
Filled with His Very Own Breath,
Shaped by Desire from Above.

The Tapestry of what is
So radiantly beautiful to see,
Is the Glory of God’s Love,
Woven into you and me.

Now we dwell in the Shadow
Of Everlasting Grace,
And feel the warmth of His Sun,
Like the Breath of Life upon your face.

But when we are through being born,
When this life surrenders us to Love,
One Light shall pierce the darkest night,
A Light from Heaven Above.

And no time will there be for silence.
Someone sings for you and for me,
Sounds of Pure Joy that resonate
In Songs of Love & cherished memory.

And when we drift
So very, very far from shore,
And chisel stones to throw at memory,
By countless acts of loving and forgiving,
We skip them over sparkling waters to be.

Deftly they touch the surface of the past,
Pulsating like the beat of a new born heart,
As God’s Love is Birth Infinity,
Ever here to begin again, again to start.

Guided by such Love given you and me,
We shall not lie afraid in the dark,
For we are held in the
Warm Embrace of God,
And alive in each other’s heart.

God fills the midnight of the Soul,
And in the endlessness of time it seems,
We will, one day, meet again,
On His beautiful Island of Dreams.

—   —   —

“Love also the trees, the plants,
the water that runs though the meadow
and on to the sea without knowing where it goes;
love the mountain, the desert, the forest,
the immense sky, full of light or full of clouds;
because all these exceed man
and reveal the Eternal to you.”
~ Savitri Devi

Dangers of Ritalin
from: HealthCentral.com

My friends, studies point to the possibility that Ritalin can uncover the presence of involuntary tics or even Tourette’s syndrome.

An FDA study found an increase of liver cancer in rats treated with Ritalin. Methylphenidate  (Ritaiin) also possesses structural and pharmacological similarities to cocaine. Ritalin, manufactured by Ciba-Geigy, is a stimulant and its effects are similar to the effects of other stimulants including amphetamine, methamphetamine, and cocaine.

Treatment emergent psychosis can occur during long-term so-called therapy with methylphenidate; regular psychiatric monitoring of people who are taking methylphenidate for adverse effects such as psychotic symptoms has been recommended.

Importantly people with ADHD have an increased risk of substance abuse.

002

Hidden Facts about Ritalin

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a very important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was called “An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)” [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse affects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.

• Paranoid delusions
• Paranoid psychosis
• Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis
• Activation of psychotic symptoms
• Toxic psychosis
• Visual hallucinations
• Auditory hallucinations
• Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences
• Effects pathological thought processes
• Extreme withdrawal
Terrified affect
Screaming
Aggressiveness
Insomnia

Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphetamine-like effects:

• Psychic dependence
• High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug
Decreased REM sleep
• When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia
Convulsions
Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

Unbelievably, many parents around the country have discovered that Ritalin has become a condition for their children continuing in school. There are even reports, by parents, of threats from social agencies: “If you don’t allow us to prescribe Ritalin for your ADHD child, we may decide that you are an unfit parent. We may decide to take your child away.”

This mind-boggling state of affairs is fueled by teachers, principals, and school counselors, none of whom have medical training. Yet even if they did…

The very existence of the “illnesses” for which Ritalin would be prescribed is unproven. It is merely assumed.

In commenting on Dr. Lawrence Diller’s book, Running on Ritalin, Dr. William Carey, Director of Behavioral Pediatrics, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, has written, “Dr. Diller has correctly described… the disturbing trend of blaming children’s social, behavioral, and academic performance problems entirely on an unproven brain deficit…”

On November 16-18, 1998, the National Institute of Mental Health held the prestigious “NIH Consensus Development Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder [ADHD].”

The conference was explicitly aimed at ending all debate about the diagnoses of ADD, ADHD, and about the prescription of Ritalin. It was hoped that at the highest levels of medical research and bureaucracy, a clear position would be taken: this is what ADHD is, this is where it comes from, and these are the drugs it should be treated with.

That didn’t happen, amazingly. Instead, the official panel responsible for drawing conclusions from the conference threw cold water on the whole attempt to reach a comfortable consensus.

Panel member Mark Vonnegut, a Massachusetts pediatrician, said, “The diagnosis [of ADHD] is a mess.”

The quite conventional and orthodox panel essentially said it was not sure ADHD was even a valid diagnosis. In other words, it virtually admitted that ADD and ADHD might be nothing more than attempts to categorize certain children’s behaviors—with no organic cause, no clear-cut biological basis, no provable reason for even using the ADD or ADHD labels.

The panel found “no data to indicate that ADHD is due to a brain malfunction [which malfunction had been the whole psychiatric assumption].”

This panel found that Ritalin has not been shown to have long-term benefits. In fact, the panel stated that Ritalin has resulted in little improvement on academic achievement or social skills.”

Ritalin can cause high blood pressure, severe insomnia, psychotic symptoms (like seeing things or visual hallucinations) and heart problems. see: ritalinsideeffects.net

The FDA has taken an interest in the University of Texas’ research regarding Ritalin and cancer. The research is alarming, but premature to be conclusive. In this surprising study researchers have discovered that every child they tested who was taking Ritalin (methylphenidate) developed chromosomal aberrations that have been associated with an increased risk of cancer (El-Zein, 2005).

Could Ritalin cause Prostate cancer – eHealthMe.com. Prostate cancer is found among people who take Ritalin.

The recent finding that Ritalin can cause cancer in some animals was not taken seriously. Scientific studies on carcinogenicity were finally released in June 1993 revealing that feeding mice Ritalin, induced liver tumors including very rare and highly malignant cancers. These results were found at dosage levels close to those routinely prescribed for children.

Animal tests are very good predictors of human health effects. In fact, the International Agency for Research on Cancer suggests that if a chemical is proven to cause cancer in animals, it should be treated as if it were cancer-causing in humans as well.

More from HealthCentral.com (Amanda Gardner):

The concerns about the drug, a stimulant that has been used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for decades, surfaced during a FDA pediatrics advisory committee meeting. The findings, by researchers from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, showed damage to the chromosomes of all of the 12 children who had taken Ritalin for three months.

Concerns about Ritalin’s cancer risk are more important in view of the millions of children treated yearly with the drug and the increasing happenings of childhood cancer, by some 35% over the last thirty years. My friend, are you awake yet?

The advisory committee had been called to discuss yet another health issue surrounding the class of ADHD medications known as methylphenidates, to which Ritalin belongs: Some psychiatric side effects have been reported among children using Concerta, Ritalin and other versions of these drugs.

“We’re not telling people to all go off their medication because you don’t know what this means,” said Melissa L. Bondy, co-author of the study, which first appeared in the online issue Cancer Letters. “You can’t base changing practice on 12 patients. Look how many millions of kids are on this. Do you want to tell all the mothers and fathers to take their kids off of the drugs?”

Well, YES! I would STRONGLY recommend that you stop giving your beloved and biologically fragile children substances that we really do not know much about. Where are the LONG term studies? Oh, have you heard – your children are the guinea pigs in an ongoing long term study. Did you not realize that? Were you not aware? I wonder why you were not aware.

The Physicians Desk Reference of Drug Side Effects notes that, regarding the pharmacology of Ritalin: “The mode of action in man is not completely understood.” And this is what you’re giving your child! The pharmaceutical manufacturers admit that they don’t even know how it works. They’re just experimentingon your child.

Scientists from the FDA, the NIH and the Environmental Protection Agency traveled to Texas to examine the study methods used by the researchers.

“We’re hoping that they’ll see this as a major public health issue, and as something that needs to be done,” Bondy added.

Meanwhile, the question of labeling changes because of possible psychiatric effects of Ritalin and other methylphenidates have been put on hold after the advisory committee told FDA officials that it was hesitant to recommend such changes.

This is all so incomprehensible to me. Type “Ritalin and Cancer” into a search engine. Be prepared to pass out. And when you get back up off of the floor, let me hear from you.

My friends, your child does not need ANY chemical substance.

What does your child need? – Sunshine, smiles, hugs, organic food, pure water, more hugs, the freedom to be, more smiles, and they desperately need to hear, “I Love You”, about a thousand times each day. Say it so many times that, when you are gone, they will still hear it.

In the soft, still quiet of their night, they will need to hear your voice. They will need to know just how much you loved them. They will come to feel that your love still lives in their heart. And, they will realize that the Love of God is truly everlasting.

“Philosophy will clip an Angel’s wings,
Conquer all mysteries by rule and line,
Empty the haunted air, and gnomed mine-
Unweave a rainbow.

And what you see.

They say something much more
Than they say,
And harbor within
A world you cannot contain.

Congratulations to Noah    who turned 13.

Three simple sounds
To say what God feels
For you, and for me,
Today, not never,
Now and forever.

You cannot truly know
What you cannot feel.
And feeling not
Conveys less than you are.
And you are all the world
To someone in need,
Who, hearing nothing,
Feels not the beat
Of your heart,
Or his own.

020They are but three
Harbingers of freedom.
They open the wounds
Of a lonely heart,
To feeling,
To healing,
To Loving again.

You can share this love,
This moment.
You, and you alone
Can feel the way,
Convey your Love for another
On a special day,
This day,
Father, Mother, Sister, Brother,
Beloved of another.

We have two new friends.

We have two new friends.

Your life is a Prayer,
Your Love, always there,
To discover,
To give,

According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece on the table.

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies –
and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

    •Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.
    A great time was had by all.

    A great time was had by all.

    My friends, until we start electing people to represent us, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and loving people to represent us.Frankly, these individuals need to love us more than they love themselves.

    It was a delightful time.

    It was a delightful time.

    These loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous heart of this Nation, there is no hope. Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

    And yes, it is a cancer of the heart, our heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
    is that good men do nothing.”
    Edmund Burke
