The Shape of our Thoughts / What Children Really Need / Friday: Montgomery Street Antique Mall

“If
the portals of the perceptions
were cleansed,
everything
would appear as it
really is –
infinite.”
William Blake

We are all interconnected
in this Web of Life.

And if we choose,
we can take
a Voyage
and travel
by the shape
of our thoughts,
to experience Life
through the eyes
of another,
even if only
for a moment.

If
we hold
to a Higher Purpose
than ourselves,
we can dramatically experience
Life
with a far deeper
meaning.

To extend our
awareness
of who we are,
we must loosen
our hold
on who we think
we are.

At the deepest
levels,
we are truly
One.

“Thou are that.
As are we
all,
in the One.”
author unknown

Martin Buber
is one of my very favorite religious Philosophers.
He was a Biblical translator and interpreter,
and a master of German prose.

His Philosophy was centered
on the dialogue of man
with other Human Beings
and to our relation with God.
His thoughts reached the fullest
expression in “I and Thou.

His words are poetically powerful.
In His view,
it is God that enables our relationships –
between man and all other beings.

A true relationship with God,
must be an I –Thou relationship,
in which God is truly known
and addressed through fervent Prayer,
not just thought of and expressed.

My Dear Friends,
we enter into relationships
with only a small fraction
of the truly great reservoir of Love
that dwells within us.

In our encounters with other people,
we are typically reduced
to mere objects of thought.
In social relationships,
we treat other people very much
as tools or conveniences.
And this type of relationship
results in the manipulation
of man by man.

In the end,
what you see
is all around you.

“What we once enjoyed and deeply Loved
we can never lose.
For all that we Love deeply
becomes a part of us.”
Helen Keller

Our Children
travel in consciousness
with their parents.
Their intellects
feast upon
knowing the World
through the focused
moments
of being with them.

The Sacred Space
of their Life
is lived through
YOU.

Our thoughts
create illusions.
They build
walls
that do not exist.
And we keep
running into these
walls.

But our problems
are not the walls.
They are the thoughts of
walls.

“When
we come to the point
of rest
in our own Being,
we encounter a World
where ALL things
are at rest,
and then
a Tree becomes
a Mystery,
a Cloud becomes
a Revelation,
and each person
we meet,
a Cosmos –
whose riches
we can only glimpse.”
Dag Hammarskjold

We project
and carry
reality with us,
unknowing
that our feelings
are far, far more powerful
than our thoughts.
And,
they are truly
real.

We have the ability
to feel
the Loving connection
with all other
Living Creations.

We can
open to the fullness
of who we
really are.
We can expand
our Consciousness
and free ourselves
of who
we think we are,
of what we are told
moment by moment.

We can
let the Love of God
flow through us
and truly live.

Goodnight.

“There is no greater blessing than the capacity to give birth, for it is the one opportunity we have to truly create, and to create something from our own flesh and blood.” These are the words of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson in the book, Toward A Meaningful Life. He goes on to say that bearing children is our one opportunity to act in a G-dlike manner and to touch eternity.

He also asks: Would it not be easier if we were created as adults instead of children and able to provide for ourselves? But there is a beautiful lesson in childhood itself – above all, that a child is genuine and innocent, and that such innocence is the foundation of life.

From my work as a physician with people with life threatening illnesses, I have come to see how vital it is to grow up feeling loved and with mottoes to live by, not die by.

For the first six years of a child’s life, its brain-wave pattern resembles that of someone under hypnosis. So the child is being entranced by the words it hears from the authorities in its life. When a child grows up hearing negative messages about how it disappoints and embarrasses its parents, never feels a loving touch, or is abused physically and psychologically with indifference and rejection, it will choose a path of self destruction, addictions and revenge. When this happens, the world and its inhabitants suffer from their actions.

Studies show that those children who do not feel loved have almost a 100% incidence of major illnesses by midlife. By contrast, those who felt loved as children have closer to a 25% illness rate by that age.

Information is not what children need. They need inspiration and a feeling of self worth and esteem. You do not have to like what they do, but you have to love them. You can point out what you don’t like rather than ask, “What’s wrong with you?” and have your words eat away at them for a lifetime.

Children need to grow up with mottoes to live by. Parents who tell them to do what makes them happy, will put them in touch with their feelings and heart’s wisdom. When troubles occur, they can be told, “G-d is redirecting you; something good will come of this.” Thus, their view of the future becomes a hopeful one and not a destructive one.

I always remember the young man in my office who said, “My father ruined my life when I was twenty one. He gave me a million dollars. I had to be a success.” I keep thinking about what his father would have said if he came home and said, “Dad, I started a charity for sick children.” Would he have yelled at him for wasting his money?

Martin Buber believed that when G-d doesn’t answer your prayers, it is because you are at full term; like a woman ready to give birth, you are ready to be born again through your own efforts and labor pains.

For me, life is a labor pain. When we can accept that, we will have less pain because giving birth to our child or ourselves is worthwhile and justified. The key in life is to teach your children that they decide which pains are worthwhile to experience because of the final result and not subject themselves to pain and problems because others prescribe them.

When we are loved we are immortal and our consciousness and presence is never lost to our survivors. In my book, Love, Magic & Mudpies, I give lots of practical advice about how to make the magic happen and turn the mud pies into castles. When we raise every child to feel loved, be kind and make a difference the world’s problems will all be resolved.

              Our thoughts create illusions.

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

Let’s Love Life.

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

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

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

– Henri Nouwen,
“The Inner Voice of Love”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 These latest numbers
were just released
on November 29.

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

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

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

Human Beings
are fragile.
Especially
our Children.

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

   They are far too precious.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hey,
he lived to be
an old man.

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

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

Thank God!

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

Relax.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodnight.

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF
MICROWAVE COOKING

from Curezone.org
read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

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

The following are the enumerated effects:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Forensic Research Conclusions

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

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

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

Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

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

MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

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

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

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

Do Microwaves Leak?

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

What Causes Microwave Ovens To Leak?

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

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

Do not
conform to the pattern of this World,

but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind.

– Romans 12:2 

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

To whom
do we belong?

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

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

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

My Dear Friends,
knowing

to whom we belong
goes a long way 

in helping us figure out
who we are.

There is a central question
of Life.

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

Or
do we belong
to God?

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

The Beatles

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

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

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

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

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

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

magnificent, wider World.

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

My Dear Friends,
it is vital to know

the Spirit of God
dwells in
you.

“What gives meaning to Life?”

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

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

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

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

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

To God We Belong
and
To Him We Return.

Goodnight.

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

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

The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.

click here to read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We all share
a Beautiful Light.

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

It can never
be seen,
only felt.

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

To find answers to our questions
of meaning,

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

into the mind of the
Heart.

A Love story within a Love story.

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

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

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

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

                    Unknowingly.

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

Only when you are lost
can you truly find yourself.

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

Inevitably we ask,
what should be done

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

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

               Beautifully crafted.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodnight.

“THE GREATEST WORKS OF ART OF ALL,
ARE CREATION: US – HUMAN BEINGS,
complete, souls in these bodies as they are,

Mari A NATURE, mind, spirit, consciousness, intelligence, Love.
All that we have now to protect.

  It’s all one Big work of ART ALL AROUND US,
AND WE ARE IT’S CROWN.

  Lets deserve that crown.
Let’s prove we can.
We can.”

–  Mari A

Fruits for Diabetes Patients

click here for more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Worlds Are Created By Love / Foods That Increase Cancer Risk / Friday: Doss Cultural Center

“In the mind,
we doubt and suspect,
and we get a kind of pleasure,
a kind of joy from that.
But in the Heart,
we try to encompass the Full World,
and by Loving the World,
we get JOY.”

Sri Chinmoy

Now
quickly becomes
nevermore.

Time
is enfolded within
layers of illusion.
This moment,
this precious instant
in the swirling sea
of now and never,
then and ever,
can quickly become
nevermore.

The awareness of Self,
of being firmly rooted
in who we truly are,
can enable us
to see that everything around us,
is intensely
ALIVE.

And,
in your dynamic vision
of Life all around,
you discover
that YOU
are truly
alive.

Getting in touch
with your consciousness,
with the awareness inside,
can enable you
to experience true
Happiness.

My Dear Friends,
our perceptions become clouded.
They delude us.
But,
despite what our senses tell us,
we CAN
experience a profound sense
of inner peace
and JOY.

As many religious traditions
have always held,
the natural state of consciousness,
which pervades the entire Universe,
is total Bliss.
And getting into touch with
the clarity of pure consciousness
inside of us,
empowers us to experience
this JOY.
When we do this,
we experience
what is true happiness.

Where the center of your gravity lies.

Yes.
Taking the time
to slow down,
and reflect upon the true nature
of who you are,
and where the center
of your gravity lies,
can have a massively
therapeutic effect.

And
who am I?

My Friends,
the Universe is apparently filled
with particles and anti-particles
dancing into and out of
existence
billions of times
each second
.

Yes.

They disappear and reappear in reality.
But,
where do they go?
.
Quantum physicists now know
they “reappear.”
They appear, and then they disappear.
But,
different ones appear.

This fact,
that the particles
of which WE are made,
reappear and are always
different
when they reappear
,
conveys a simple and powerful
message:
we are all connected,
we are truly
one.

Consciousness Moves to Another Universe After Death.

This is much like
the air we breathe.
Each breath
is taken in and
released.
And a new and different breath of air,
with new and different particles,
is taken inside.
We share these particles
with every Living thing
on Earth.

“The third Universal Truth is
that ALL things
– seen and unseen –
are connected.
All things are different faces
of Consciousness.”
– 
Michael Brown

Quantum Theory Proves
That Consciousness Moves to Another Universe
After Death.
click here to read more

Consciousness exists outside
of the constraints of Time and Space.
It is able to be anywhere:
in the Human body and outside of it.
That fits well with the basic postulates
of quantum mechanics,

according to which a certain particle can be present
anywhere
and an event can happen
in several, sometimes countless, ways.
learning-mind.com

Oddly,
the more energetic our particles are,
the less time they exist.
They go back into the vast space and vacuum
from whence they came.

Outside of the constraints of Time.

Yes,
there is something very weird going on
in the, so-called, empty space
in our Universe.

To a physicist,
mass and energy are interchangeable.
This tells us
that YOU have an uncertainty in the energy,
of which you are made.
And the greater the uncertainty,
the shorter the time that you are uncertain
about whether particles even exists.

Particles constitute
the origin of all structure today.

So,
in a sense,
YOU,
yourself, are virtual particles
that have become real.

You see Folks,
we don’t really know
what we are
or
that we are
(if we really exist).

“You are becoming
The Song of your Heart.
How Beautiful it is.
As the Flower blossoms forth,
Feel the Earth in your toes.
Oh my child,
you’ll never know
What Tomorrow brings.
So sing, sing, sing.
Rise before the Morning Light.
Let your Soul take its flight.
God is with you
listening.
So sing, sing sing.”
Snatam Kaur and Peter Kater

Let’s wax Philosophical
for a moment.

As we journey through this Life,
we experience moments when it seems
we are not able to see any purpose
in the circumstance
in which we find ourselves.

But,
our Perpetual Creation
tells us that at every moment
the World is the way it is
because God Loves us,
and He perpetually Creates us
in His infinitely dynamic
and Loving Image.

This moment
was created
and brought into being
out of absolute nothingness
by a Loving
Creator.

            Faith leads us into the Light

Realizing
that we are far less than half-present,
knowing
that we have not had
a sense of being truly
where we are,
and who we are,
has left precious Life
in the dark.

But Faith,
leads us
into the Light,
the Light of
Love.

As we Pray,
and Meditate,
on the Beauty and Immensity
of our Universe,
we can come to
more fully realize,
that Worlds
are Created by Love.
And,
OUR World
can be recreated
by Love,
and by Love
alone.

“There can be Miracles
When you Believe.
Though Hope is frail
It’s hard to kill.
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe,
Somehow you will,
You will when you
Believe.”
Stephen Schwartz

          To everything there is a Season.

Have you
wept for LOVE?
Has a Loved one
wept
for you?

Perhaps,
it is now time
for weeping,
crying
for all the JOY
in Life.

“To everything
there is a Season.
A time to weep,
and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;
Ecclesiastes 3:4

 My Dear Friends,
we experience,
and are aware of,
only a very narrow
slice of Reality.
.
But Time alone
with God,
as you Pray
with all your Heart
to our Father
in Heaven above,
will broaden the
dimensions
in which you truly
dwell.

Goodnight.

Kahlil Gibran “When you are sorrowful
look again
in your Heart,

and you shall see that in Truth
you are weeping for that
which has been your
delight.”

Kahlil Gibran

………………….By Love alone.

“Our mind
is like a cloudy sky:

in essence clear and pure,
but overcast by clouds of delusions.
Just as the thickest clouds can disperse,
so, too, even the heaviest delusions
can be removed from our Mind.”
Kelsang Gyatso
.

Meditate on the Beauty of our Universe.

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

Sri Chinmoy

This year, more than 1 million Americans and more than 10 million people worldwide are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, a disease commonly believed to be preventable. Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle. The lifestyle factors include cigarette smoking, diet (fried foods, red meat), alcohol, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, infections, stress, obesity, and physical inactivity. The evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental pollutants etc.

Cancer is a staggering epidemic.
The number of people affected by this disease
is heartbreaking.
As we learn more about the causes,

preventive measures.

In knowing of the relationship
between diet and cancer,

NOT to eat.
And,
what we should eat.

Top 10 Foods That Increase Cancer Risk

Nearly 1.5 million new cases of cancer were expected to be diagnosed last year–while 559,650 people were expected to die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. That’s more than 1,500 people a day–such a startling statistic. In the book Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic (New Society Publishers, 2007) the authors write that the Number 4 solution is to “Eat a Healthy Diet.

Listed below are the 10 Foods and Drinks to Limit or Eliminate:

1. All charred food, which create heterocyclic aromatic amines, known carcinogens. Even dark toast is suspect.

2. Well-done red meat. Medium or rare is better, little or no red meat is best.

Be healthy.  –  Be LOVING.

3. Sugar, both white and brown – which is simply white sugar with molasses added. (See Care2′s Directory of Natural Sweeteners for great, healthy alternatives.)

4. Heavily salted, smoked and pickled foods, which lead to higher rates of stomach cancer.

5. Sodas/soft drinks, which pose health risks, both for what they contain–sugar and various additives
– and for what they replace in the diet
– beverages and foods that provide vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

6. French fries, chips and snack foods that contain trans fats.

7. Food and drink additives such as aspartame.

8. Excess alcohol.

9. Baked goods, for the acrylamide.

10. Farmed fish, which contains higher levels of toxins such as PCBs.

A Mother’s Love / Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented Conference / Friday: T. B. A.

“Honor your Father and your Mother,
as the Lord your God has commanded you,
that your days may be long,
and that it may be well with you
in the land which the Lord your God
is giving you.”

Deuteronomy 5:16 

Every
breath we breathe
is a Miracle.

As you hold your breath,
it nurtures you with Light,
fills your every living cell,
resonates with every part
of your body and mind and Soul,
and brings you
into a Beautiful harmony
with everything you seek
in Life.

Upon releasing this Gift
back into the void
from which it came,
you become harmonious
with all other Living things.

The breath you breathe
you share
will every
thing,
and you become one
with all,
again.

The Majesty of Wonder
is Graced
by your every
breath,
by your thoughts and deeds,
and by the Prayers you Pray,
to sow the seeds
of Life ever after,
and LOVE
beyond Belief.

YOU
are the culmination of God’s
creative Desire.

“The LORD God formed Man
from the dust of the ground
and breathed into his nostrils
the Breath of Life,
and man became a Living Being”
Genesis 2:7

Yes,
God
is the Potter,
that molds our Clay
to His Creative Desire.

…………….God is the Potter.

And
your Mother’s Love –
also comes
from Above.
It frees you
from worry and
sleepless nights,
from not knowing
what is right.

A Mother’s Love frees you.

A Mother’s Love
fills us with
Grace,
that will never
die,
with tears
that never dry,
with a Truth
that will never lie,
with LOVE
surging from Her
Fiery Heart,
in whose Loving Shadow
WE
shall always remain.

In the midnight quiet
of a railway station,
a little boy
sits quietly,
almost all alone,
waiting on
the Rock Island Line,
to return him home,
to the farms
of far away Iowa,
a place he knew
as Paradise,
with just his precious
Mother’s voice
to soften the hard edges
of the hardwood bench,
the crisp night air,
the reflecting, echoing walls,
Life.

And I discover,
with the Love
of a Mother,
nothing else
in Life
truly matters.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause Peace to return to our Hearts.”
Washington Irving

And My Mother’s precious Life
echoes back:

“If I never
would have lived,
I could not
die.
Death
is proof of
Life.
And Life,
my Son,
is proof of Love.”

       ………….It is YOU.

Life is bittersweet
and can be filled
with despair.

Upon a razor’s edge
are we cast
onto the stage
of a Magnificent Day,
that can quickly become
a long night
to stay.

As our minds reflect
upon Human misery,
the mirror of our awareness
shows the World can be
a terrible place.
The History
of the Human race
depicts something far less
than Humanity.

And the fear of death,
not knowing where we go,
or what takes place
after we tell
the brief story of our Life,
can become worse
than death itself.

My Dear Friends,
God dwells in your Heart.
And by His Strength and Grace
alone,
you are able
to overcome adversity.

Marie Anderson

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.

sun set

 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
and 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 precious Mother lived
for another twelve
and one half years.

Yes,
my tears
are of Joy
and Thanksgiving.

My Precious Lord,
How Great Thou Art.

A Mother’s LOVE
is the reason
why,
the night
Flowers into Morning.

May God grant
that a Man
should one day
be as strong,
as the LOVE
He found
in His Mother’s arms.

A Mother’s Love
is forever found,
in all
the countless generations
to come.

The
Infinite Love of
God
defines a Mother’s Love.
It is now
and forever.
It is
God Incarnate.

Mother,
it is
YOU.

Goodnight.

….A Heavenly masterpiece of a creation.

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

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

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

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

        Profound Revelations guide us.

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

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

We all possess
a longing
for the unknown.

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

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

     Our Home is little known.

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

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

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

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

George Matheson

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

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

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

Goodnight.

Remembering Margarete Pross

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

And few of them!

Goodnight.
.

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

W. Somerset Maugham,
Of Human Bondage
