A Deepening Sea, Widening Sky / List of Human Carcinogens (Knowledge for Life)

“Parents often talk about
the younger generation
as if they
didn’t have anything
to do with it.”

Dr. Haim Ginott

We stand on the edge of a deepening sea, widening sky.

Deep and abiding reflection
can become the beginning
of a conversation
with someone
you may have never met,
someone
you thought
you really knew,
a person
you did not know
was you.

My Dear Friends,
we stand on the very edge
of a deepening sea, widening sky,
as our precious Hearts whisper,
longing to send
an Infinite message of Life and Love,
to paint a Rainbow
without any end.

poles of earth

The boundary between
what is real
and what we dream,
what we can imagine,
is more porous
than it may seem.

The science fiction,
the fantasy
of what WE now can create,
will ask no less of us
than to suspend Belief
in ourselves and in each other,
in the future of Life
condemned to be brief.

“Somewhat ironically, science,
having set out to know
the ultimate nature of reality,

is discovering that,
not only is this world

beyond any direct experience,
it may also be inherently
unknowable.”

– Peter Russell

All probabilities may ALL exist at once.

Strange discoveries,
fantastical worlds of imagination,
will force the question
of basic Beliefs
about Life,
about Love,
about our Blessings
from Above.

Scientists at NASA have substantiated thatsmall_web
matter can indeed be in two places at once.
Quantum entanglement enables
particles millions of light-years apart
to be connected without physical contact.
Space-time can now be controlled;
teleportation is becoming a reality;
and virtual science has led us
closer to realizing
hyper-dimensional existence.
If you think
these are God like qualities,
you are right.
And they are being contemplated
by Children of God.

no matter how far apart we are,
Hearts have always known
they are connected
in a very real way.

“I’d bring out my guitar
and a lot of those things
that made you feel apart
or distant,
disappeared.”

“You call all the stars by their names, O Lord, and yet you care for me.”                     – Betty H. Butler

But, the implausible,
the improbable,
the unbelievable,
can bring Life
to an end.

What once was purely
Philosophical,
lurks darkly in a new book
of Revelations,
of quantum research.

All probabilities
may ALL exist
at once,
buried in the same reality,
until measured or observed.
Mathematicians can prove it.
But,
My Dear Friends,
so can our
Love,
which can become truly
immeasurable,
like the Love
of God.

Out of nowhere
I heard a voice saying,
“Because I Love you”.
Lene Jeanette Taralrud

Like clouds
flying across the sky,
shadows of insight and awareness
can shade the reality
in your eyes.
What the mind of man
can imagine,
he can now make.
But what is
the Human cost?
What will it
take?

rainbow

    A Rainbow without any end.

We possess the art of engineering
the science of quantum change
and of physical reality itself,
to make the unreal
as real,
to bring Life
to the very edge
of never asking why,
to the bottom
of an infinitely deep sea,
or an ever widening
Sky.
It is up to you
and I,
and the question
we need to ask:

Why?

pattern

The mind of man
can climb any mountain
of Everestian heights,
cross any ocean
of uncharted depths,
redefine what we see,
what may
or may not be,
which is you
and me.

While triumphant we may feel,
believing in something implausible,
something unreal made real,
we may cause blades of grass
to encircle virtually unreal
pure white stones,
grass ever green
that grows beneath
names never made known.
And no one will ever knell
at the foot
of these graves
to extol the virtues
of those extant,
who belied Belief
in proclamations of proclivities
to do what became wrong,
diverse and strong,
simply because we could.
No one will shout
from any mountain top
“Once we
were here,
and now
we are ALL
gone.”

Brix

       We miss you Brix.

Down the mountain side
we will fall
into a valley hushed
and white with snow.
No one will be here
in sunshine to tell
of our journey upward,
with sweeter songs
that accompanied us.
For what was unknown
became real,
and what then was real
became, with us,
unknown:
a potential existence
that stilled every voice
that sang every song.

“But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and EVIL,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof,
thou shalt surely
die.”

– Genesis 2:17

Life
without the deep and abiding
reflection of Love,
simply
cannot exist,
cannot prevail.

kawalows

The deep and abiding reflection of Love.

Unknowing
becomes known
because you exist.
But you are here
because of the
Love
that also existed.

Time is not
a natural feature
of our universe.
It is a concept
invented by us,
we so human in being.

There is no past behind us,
or physical future waiting
in the wings.

Nature
does not defend
the right to cry.
But cry we do
late into our night.
For the reality
of being
resides within each
Heart.
And so it was,
and always has
been.

Cherish the mind
that has a Heart.

Goodnight.

“Little Fly,
Thy summer’s play
My thoughtless hand
Has brushed away.
Am I not like thee?
Or art not thou A man like Me?
For I dance and drink and sing,
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.”
– William Blake

The very edge of never asking why.

My Precious Friends,
I wish to share with you
an unbelievably LENGTHY list of
KNOWN and POSSIBLE
things that cause CANCER.
Please take the time to study this list!
We are at war with ourselves.
Yes,
the enemy is us.
Our lifestyle and
our society
and corporate greed
have caused this
horrendous condition.

We can look down
on the pathetic depths
to which corporate America
has led us in order to
make money.

But enough
is enough.

Millions of our Loved ones,
neighbors,
and fellow citizens
have perished in misery.

Please ARM yourself
with the knowledge
you and your precious children
NEED to survive.

Compare these two lists
with the labels on the products
you wear, drive with, eat,
sleep and sit on, breathe, live and work with,
allow into your home, on your yard or
in your car –
anywhere in your presence.

When you find items made with
these horrible products
THROW  THEM  AWAY!

There is NO need to die a
miserable and painful death.

To avoid a future far worse
than you can imagine,
get smart, get educated, get busy, get involved and
read ALL the labels.
You have the strength and wisdom
to get rid of the garbage
polluting your life
and the very precious
life of your child.

With every moment you take
to read every line below
you are saying:
I LOVE YOU.

You cannot Love someone more
than when you save that person’s
Life.

From Danica Collins with the Underground Health Reporter:  read more
The 17th Century Ushered in Cancer. 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.

The food you eat … the air you breathe … the clothes you wear … the water you drink … the personal care products you use … the medications you take … the water you bathe in … virtually everything you consume, and everything you do – or are exposed to – causes cancer these days!
Here are Just a Few Factors Present in  Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
Genetically modified food
Most laundry detergents
Commercial hair dyes
Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein)
Granite countertops (which emit radon)
Rancid peanuts and seeds
Canola oil
Canned tomatoes
Food laced with pesticides
Chemicals from aerosol cans
Mammograms
X-Rays
Food microwaved in plastic containers (including
plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen
TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and
formaldehyde)

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.”

National Toxicology Program (NTP) is formed from parts of several different US government agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The NTP updates its Report on Carcinogens (RoC) every few years.

The Report on Carcinogens identifies 2 groups of agents:

  1. Known to be human carcinogens”
    2. “Reasonably anticipated to be human carcinogens”
    The current version of the RoC lists about 240 substances and exposures:Known human carcinogens

Living Is But One Dimension / Prevent Cancer in Your Home / Tuesday, Jan. 5 We Begin Again

There is so much more
To Life,
Than Life.

Amazing_Water_Lily_flower_beautiful

    There is more to what exists.

Living is but one
Dimension of existence.
It is a very narrow fragment.
Life is a very thin sliver
Of awareness,
Of who we are,
What we know,
What can be.

The Water Lily,
So fragile, delicate and beautiful,
Floats upon the surface
Of its reality,
Much like you and me,
Never knowing, unaware,
Of what lies beneath,
In the waters of Life,
Majestic, dark and deep.

ws_Water_Lilies_Pond_1920x1200

    This time is your true Treasure.

What lurks below
Is unknown,
And the distance
May be vast,
Much like the way
To what lies above,
To the infinity of stars,
Far beyond what
The Water Lily
filled with Life,
Or we,
May ever know.

And the narrow path forward,
Around and beyond,
Is the horizon,
The limit of what we see,
But not of what is,
Not what can be.

“There are more things
in Heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of
in our philosophy.”

– Hamlet, First Folio (1623),
by William Shakespeare

There is so much more
To what exists,
And whatever will be,
To what our minds can imagine,
Where we truly are,
Where we can go,
What we can see.

l

Fragile, delicate and beautiful, as are you and me.

My Friends,
The wind beneath
The wings of your longing
Can lift your Spirit
To heights so Heavenly,
Only dreams aspire,
Only Angels see.

lilies

There is so much more to Life.

For you are Lovingly made
Of Angelic Dust,
Formed within a Beautiful Dream,
By a God that deeply Loves you,
Knows your every desire,
Every need,
Every longing,
In every moment
To be.

Fragrant Water Lilies

The wings of your longing can lift your Spirit.

Rejoice,
My Dear Friends.
Take comfort in this brief moment
Made for you and me.
This time is your true Treasure,
God’s precious Gift beyond belief,
As you may come one day
To see.

“Surely a man goes about
as a shadow!

Surely for nothing
they are in turmoil.”

– Psalm 39:5-6

This time on Earth
Is all we have,
All we need,
To share who we are,
Be all we can be,
To Love so deeply
No one is left in need,
And Life is fulfilled
Beyond what we
Are able to see.

ground

The ground beneath your feet
Bears the weight of your Dignity.
Yes, it carries more than you and me.
For we walk upon this Sacred Soil
With our hopes and dreams,
The Sanctity of our Being,
Our wishes for all Humanity,
The Destiny of our deep desires,
The discovery of our Divinity.

Across the great divide
Of fear and doubt,
Lies this Sacred Land
Found only in dreams.
And as Spirits soar
In our search for
Everlasting Love,
We discover our Home
In the Heart of One
We Adore.

    Welcome Home.

What we endeavor to see
Is far less than what we are.
We are so very much more
Than what we thought,
What we imagined,
What we dreamed
We could ever be.

When your longing for Love
Is carried gently
On the Wings of Prayer.
There
You will be.

Welcome Home.

Prevent Cancer in Your Home in 6 Easy Steps

Read more

cancer-prevention-266x300

There are many steps you can take –
in your home, your lifestyle and your body –
to drastically reduce your lifetime cancer risk.

Hey folks,
This is easy!
It is just common sense.

Toxic cleaning products
in your home drastically increase your cancer risk –
especially BREAST cancer risk for the females
who tend to use them most often.

Women have been shown to absorb
as much as FIVE pounds of toxins
through the skin each year.

Do we have your attention
YET?

We are destroying our immune system’s
ability to fight germs and infection
by overwhelming our environment
with antibacterial products.

The BEST product to use
for general household cleaning is
(GRIP YOUR KEYBOARD TIGHTLY –
HERE IT COMES):

simple soap and water.

Hey, it gets even easier.

Choose Organic

We have known how dangerous
pesticides are for decades.
By choosing organically grown vegetables
and organically raised animal products
you limit your amount of exposure.

This is especially important
when it comes to “soft” fruits and vegetables
– such as peaches and tomatoes –
that absorb more insecticides and chemicals
than thicker-skinned varieties.

If you think ORGANIC is more expensive –
try a month in the hospital.
Pay that bill,
then look forward to going home
to slowly and painfully
die.

Come on folks,
wake up!
How simple do you want
me to say it.

I Love You.

And yes,
that is reason enough
to hit you between the eyes
with the truth!

The chemicals used in dry cleaning
have been linked to several forms of cancer.

So before you drop off your clothing,
and that of your loved ones,
at the dry cleaners,
THINK
Do I really want to die in this way?

Yes,
My friends.
It is that simple.

Please read more.
cancerAnd in an update of December 17, 2015:
Cancer is overwhelmingly
a result of environmental factors.
The new study, in the journal Nature,
used four approaches to conclude
only 10-30% of cancers were down

A few minutes of reading,
coupled with a relatively small dose
of common sense,
can prevent a horrible death.
And I do mean
horrible.

I have lost so very many loved ones,
including my precious Mother, Marie,
friends, neighbors, a deeply loved student,
Aaron Rivera,
fellow teachers I truly admired and loved
and so many others to this horrible
and preventable malady.

The thought of losing
you
I cannot bear.

And now,
I simply must close.
I cannot see through
the tears.

R. J. (Rosie Junior) celebrated his second birthday on Dec. 26. He received many gifts from Ian, Dr. A. and others. But his Love is the greatest gift of all. I am afraid not to Love him. He could devour me in one gulp for dessert. And then, all that would be left is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . burp!
