Treasure The Light / Terrible Chemicals Coming Back / Friday: Japanese Garden

Let us treasure
the Light,
and not give reality
to the shadow.

cloud-over-sun

           Treasure the Light.

We long for Love
and Light.

Dark the dreams
that lie behind
the broken door of a Heart
will think
will beat no more,
for those we failed
to Love,
or never Loved
before.

Yes,
the illusions of Life
cry little pity
without the Joy
of Love.

arms outstretched

You take farewell of the Glorious Sun that shines from within.

When sorrow
gathers all about you,
and you take farewell
of the Glorious Sun
that shines from within,
and from Above,
backlit by the past,
the atmosphere that clouds
this day,
is silhouetted like
a luminous halo.

But,
with fervent Prayer
and abiding Trust in God,
you can feel
a new tomorrow,
a beautiful new dawn
coming your way.

“Everybody’s talking at me
I don’t hear a word they’re saying,
only the echoes of my mind.
People stopping, staring,
I can’t see their faces,
only the shadows of their eyes.
I’m going
where the Sun keeps shining,

through the pouring rain.”
– Harry Nilsson

A constant shadow
lies across nevermore,
cast by what we dare not
dream today.
A mist
rolls across the eyes,
when Love’s obscured or dies.
But we can come to realize,
the unbelievable Beauty of our Life
cannot be denied.

With Prayer and Trust in God.

Flowers
grow for the comfort
of Mankind.
They invite us
to grasp wild every blossom,
to give and share,
and tell evermore
of our Love
that blossomed like those
now in hand.

john“I can’t be contented
with yesterday’s glory.

I can’t live on promises
Winter to Spring.

Today is my moment,
now is my story,

I’ll laugh and I’ll cry
and I’ll sing
– John Denver

We are not here
to learn some trigonometric equation
that may soon be forgotten
or never used.
We are here to study
the Geometry
of the Human Heart,
the capacity to Forgive,
the acceptance of Love.

My Dear Friends,
you can waste a lifetime
repressing the Truth
you envisioned as a Child.

“Deep in December,
it’s nice to remember,

although you know
the snow will follow.

Deep in December,
it’s nice to remember,

without a hurt
the Heart is hollow.”

But you can never forget
all the Joy
that was yours today.
You shall never regret
the Divine Love
you feel
as you see a new Tomorrow
coming your way.

“At the end of a river
the water stops its flow.
At the end of a highway
there’s no place you can go.
But just tell me you Love me,
and you are only mine,
and our Love will go on
till the end of time.”
– Sid Jacobson

Your Father,
in the Beautiful Heavens Above,
has loved you more Dearly
than words can tell.
For you are
His
Beautiful Child.

            He’s going your way.

God’s Heart is always full of tears
at the thought of Love’s farewell.
The precious Gift of His Love
is
THIS moment

of your Life,
the time He Lovingly
gives to you.

Please remember,
wherever you’re going,
My Friend,

He’s going your way.

Purity of youth
and the purity of the Spirit
were memorable expressions
of the precious time
when we were children.
But the deeper meaning,
is still undisclosed
to you and me.

three-in-a-family

In a blinding moment of clarity.

As a fragile
and deeply Loved Human Being,
we can come to realize
the magnitude of what it means to be
a child again,
a Child of God.

This feeling is profound
and defies definition.
And it is expressed only
by the Human Heart.

Yes,
in a blinding moment of clarity,
you can come to truly see
what it means
to be deeply Loved,
like a Child again.

At least we’ve learned from the past. CFCs, DDTs, POPs, and other terrifying chemical acronyms have been banned for decades. The planet barely survived their usage, but we did it! It’s over! The end!

Actually, it’s more like “The End?”
And now we’re set up for the hard-hitting sequel.

You know what’s great at storing harmful chemicals? Polar ice. That was all well and good by society for a time. (Eat it, Nanook. Move to the city and get a real job!) But now, global warming is melting that ice and releasing all those chemicals at once …

NASA/Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio
… It’s like society’s literal karma, coming back to punish us for past sins.

Most worrying are the persistent organic pollutants – organic chemicals we stuffed into just about everything until we found out they give cancer to anything they touch. They’ve been showing up in plants and animals again lately, trickling out of melting glaciers and into the natural environment.

So if you see this sign or any others like it,
listen.

Then there’s DDT, an insecticide that was banned in the ’70s due to its poisonous effect on birds. And though we haven’t used it in decades, it’s showing up again in Antarctic penguins, thanks to the retreating ice caps. That’s right, penguins. The butlers of the snow.

Good God,
what have we done?

“In such ugly times,
the only true protest
is Beauty.”

– Lucia Perry

      To be woven into Nature

We are here
to create,
to infiltrate space
with ideas
and Mansions of Thought,
to make something
of Life,
to acknowledge choice,
to become enlightened,
to entangle the phenomenon
of Freedom
with our brief existence,
to be woven
into Nature.

“Let the mountains talk
And let the rivers run
There is wisdom here
There’s so much to learn
In each brand new day
In our own rebirth.”
John Denver

Consciousness
is the ground
of our being,
the physics of
all possibilities.
It defines
the Universe
of me.

out-of-body

The Universe of Me

New elsewheres of
thought,
beyond our wildest
imaginings,
pull chaos into form,
matter into meaning.

And when the Theater
of our mind
is splayed for all to see,
a light of understanding
may come to one and all,
except the one
who is me.

Love may feel most alone.

When storm clouds
quickly gather,
Love may feel
most alone.

But Love,
My Dear Friends,
is the Thunder
thrust out of the rain,
the walk
in the wonder
unable to contain
the thrill of
the Rainbow arching
high above the sky,
the feeling
I must Love you or die,
while waiting
for the Sun,
with an unknowing look
that knows
our Hearts beat
as one.

Rainbow_Rising 2

The physics of all possibilities.

We are never more
than a reflection of Love
in someone’s eyes,
a shadow crossing over
the path
of another on their way
to the joy
in your Heart.

The clarity and depth
of finding such Love,
keeps you
from searching for yourself
in all the wrong places.

“To infinite,
ever-present Love,

all is Love,
and there is no error,
no sin, sickness, nor death.”
– Mary Baker Eddy

Occasionally
one meets in the course of one’s life
someone who leaves a deep imprint
upon you.
But Love’s imprint
becomes you.

Unstoppable and powerful movement

We are all aware
of near death experiences.
But,
there are other awakenings
that are, perhaps,
similar,
or maybe, the same.

These all too rare moments
come when we glimpse
what it is like
to be fully alive,
totally aware
of Life
and what it is offering.

Sometimes the door to Life
is opened
because death or near death
makes us aware
of just how precious this Life is.

sun M

Glimpse what it is like to be fully alive.

These experiences
may be viewed
not just as out of body
or out of mind.
They can be realized
as moving from being unmindful
to clarity of thought,
from hesitation of action
to unstoppable and powerful movement
forward in Life.

This takes place
when TWO Hearts merge,
when two minds meet
and refuse to part,
when two moments collide,
and the momentum of each
propels BOTH forward
at a speed equal to more
than two individuals
could ever contemplate.

In perhaps,Harry
what is the most beautiful song
of Life’s dependence
upon Love,
“Without You”
Harry Nilsson,
expresses what a only
a Human Heart can say:
“I can’t live
if living is without you.
I can’t give anymore.”

In reading the lines
of these insightful words,
we see the Infinity of Human Love,
that it is more than
a number squared.
One Heart and one Heart
is far more
than two.
Love is
an Infinite number.

When your Love
for another
stops time itself,
a new Life begins.

Yes,
Life can begin again.
And you
can fully live it,
be beautifully in the moment,
trusting
it shall never end.

Do not sacrifice
even one precious moment
of the Beautiful Gift
that is you.

When the Love of God is read
in His Holy Word,
His Love for you
will be lifted from the pages
of your Life,
and felt
in the beat of your precious
Heart.

To be
nearer my God to Thee,
is to be
in Love
now and forever,
fully alive
and FREE.

stars

The Beautiful Gift that is you.

Every precious beat
of your Heart
is a Sacred Gift,
Infinite in worth,
lavishly wrapped in Love
and meant to be
opened.
Open this Gift.
It is a Gift of Life,
a Gift of Love.
No greater Gift
will ever be given
than God’s Gift
from Above.

May God
abide with you always
in each precious moment,
in the day of your awakening,
in this day,
now
and forever.

Goodnight.

Cancer supplements, herbs, vitamins,  plant extracts with potential anti cancer activity:

There are countless herbs that have been found to have anti-tumor activity in laboratory studies. Whether these herbs and dietary supplement have a role to play in cancer treatment or prevention in humans is not clear at this time. Even if they do, the appropriate dosage and best way to use them is not well known.

However, if your doctor approves, you could try some of these herbal and nutritional supplements.

There are numerous reports of cancer preventive activity of dietary botanicals, including cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and broccoli, allium vegetables such as garlic and onion, green tea, citrus fruits, soybeans, berries, and ginger, as well as medicinal plants. Several compounds, such as genistein (from soybeans), lycopene (from tomatoes), brassinin (from cruciferous vegetables), sulforaphane (from asparagus), indole-3-carbinol (from broccoli), and resveratrol (from grapes) are being tested.

Berries and berry extracts such as acai, black or red raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, noni, and wolfberry have numerous anticancer compounds. Be sure they are ORGANIC to avoid the pesticides.

Broccoli vegetable and broccoli sprout extract are excellent options.

Curcumin may help fight breast, colon, and prostate cancer. Researchers have found in the lab that curcumin can enhance the cancer-fighting power of treatment with TRAIL, a naturally occurring molecule that helps kill cancer cells. TRAIL stands for tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand. In an experiment with human prostate cancer cells in a laboratory dish, the combination treatment killed off two to three times more cells than either treatment alone. Curcumin exerts multiple different suppressive effects on human breast carcinoma cells in vitro.

Carotenoids show a prominent role in decreasing the incidence of various cancers.

Vitamin D has an important role to play in prevention. Cancer rates are different at different latitudes of the globe. Rates of breast, colon and ovarian cancer are lower in sunnier regions of the world than in Northern climates where cold winters limit people’s sun exposure. Sunlight triggers the synthesis of vitamin D in the skin, and people who get little sun exposure tend to have lower stores of the vitamin. More than three-fourths of people with a variety of cancers have low levels of vitamin D, and the lowest levels are associated with more advanced cancers

Green Tea has polyphenolic compounds such as EGCG that are protective against various forms of cancer.

Graviola fruit, also known as soursop, grows in the Amazon jungle and some of the Caribbean islands. See graviola cancer latest research, a web site that is updated regularly.

AHCC – Active Hexose-correlated Compound – is a mushroom extract that has been tested as an immune enhancing, liver protective and anti-cancer agent.

Ashwagandha has many compounds that have been found to have activity against lung, colon, breast, and central nervous system tumors.

Calcium D Glucarate is a natural supplement.

Cat’s Claw extracts exert a direct anti-proliferative activity on MCF7 breast cancer cell lines. Cats-Claw supplements can improve quality of life in those with advanced tumors.

DIM-Diindolylmethane supplement is another good option. See current research on this supplement at diindolemethane dim web site with the latest studies.

Indole 3 Carbinol is available as a supplement. See Indole3Carbinol I3C  for more information.

Mangosteen has powerful xanthones. As of 2011, I am not aware of human studies with mangosteen in the prevention or treatment of cancer.

Milk thistle contains silymarin and other flavonoids that have been found to have anti-tumor action in bladder and prostate cancer cells.

Noni fruit juice contains a polysaccharide-rich substance called Noni-ppt with anti-tumor activity.

Reishi mushroom water soluble extracts inhibit colon tumors in mice. Reishi may be helpful in advanced-stage cancers and has shown activity against prostate cancer cells.

Agaricus mushroom has been studied as a mushroom extract cancer treatment.

Resveratrol shows promise in neuroblastoma and breast cancer.
Integr Cancer Therapy. Efficacy of Antioxidants as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in Combination With the Chemotherapeutic Agent Doxorubicin. Resveratrol and curcumin have the potential to be clinically applied to prevent cardiac toxicity and hand-foot syndrome and enhance the anticancer efficiency of Doxorubicin.

Maitake mushroom is often used in Japan

Calcium mineral has been associated with a lower risk of colon cancer, so has vitamin D.

IP-6, Inositol hexaphosphate, is a naturally polyphosphorylated carbohydrate found in beans, brown rice, corn, sesame seeds, wheat bran, and other high fiber foods. IP-6 has been reported to have in vivo and in vitro anticancer activity against numerous tumors, such as colon, prostate, breast, liver, chronic myeloid leukemia, and rhabdomyosarcomas. Significant human trials are lacking and hence we do not currently know whether taking IP-6 supplements is helpful in cancer prevention or therapy.

Melatonin, a pineal hormone, is a potent antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit estrogen-responsive human breast cancer cells and augment the effectiveness of tamoxifen.

Supplements that may be helpful for those on chemotherapy:
Carnitine improves fatigue in those who are undergoing chemotherapy.
Glutamine supplementation can lessen loss of protein in the muscle and protect immune and gut-barrier function during radio-chemotherapy in patients with advanced cancer. Glutamine supplement may also be helpful for mucositis induced by cancer treatment.
SAM-e may have a protective effect in cancer chemotherapy-induced liver toxicity, do not use more than 100 mg a day.

CoQ10
Improved survival in patients with end-stage cancer treated with coenzyme Q10 and other antioxidants: a pilot study.J Int Med Res.
This pilot study evaluated the survival of patients with end-stage cancer who received supplements of coenzyme Q10 and a mixture of other antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C, selenium, folic acid and beta-carotene). During a period of 9 years, 41 patients who had end-stage cancer were included. Primary cancers were located in the breast, brain, lungs, kidneys, pancreas, esophagus, stomach, colon, prostate, ovaries and skin. The median actual survival was 40% longer than the median predicted survival.

Additional Herbs and compounds:
Celery seed extract
D Glucarate supplement
Indole-3-carbinol supplement
Mistletoe herb
Morinda citrifolia extract
Sulforaphane, found in broccoli and Brussels sprouts, slows the growth of human breast cancer cells in the lab. It disrupts the action of protein ‘microtubules’ within the cells, which are vital for the success of cell division. It also has effects on detoxification enzymes that can defend against cancer-promoting substances.
Vitamin K supplement
