There is no Greater I, than We / Things to START doing / School Calendar 2017-18

There is no greater I, than We.

The only problem
with Love –
we think
it ends.

But our LOVE
only begins,
over and over and over
again.
And God’s Love,
as hard as it is
to comprehend,
had no beginning
and has
no end.

“The Universe may have existed
forever,
according to a new model
that applies quantum correction terms
to complement Einstein’s
theory of general relativity.”
Lisa Zyga in Phys.org

Where ever you
go,
what ever you
do,
Love is always
patiently waiting for
YOU,
to nourish,
to enjoy,
to share,
to save
YOU.

                   Patiently waiting.

The journey
is long,
the Journey
is short,
Love is always near,
and
very, very far,
but only
in space,
never in the
trace
you are
in Time.

The moment
doesn’t exist,
that Love cannot
be.

Your finest day,
My Friend,
is yet
to be.

There is no
space
between two Hearts
that beat
for one another.
There is
no greater
I,
than We.

We live
in
each other’s
Hearts.

Eternity,
My Friend,
lies
in the next
beat of your
Heart.
In
that moment in
Time,
Every dream
is a Heartbeat
away.

Every Joy,
in every Dream,
lies within
one
moment.
The next moment
tells
what will be.
The next
beat of your Heart
opens the door
to
Eternity.

Your Life,
My Friend,
is not
your Life.

Like letters
you have written,
never meaning to
send –

your Life
is Life’s
longing
to be.

             Once I, was WE.

Mother
and Father,
if your voice is
warm and tender,
Love for you,
time
will never forsake.

And your smiles
join you,
to God’s ecstasy.

           Warm and tender.

My Friends,
when you think
about it,
wars never end.
Hatred ignited to
the destruction of precious
God given, Human Life,
forever spirals
out of control.
Without the intervention
of Love and Forgiveness,
it too begins
over and over and over
again.

I am truly proud
of the Love expressed by President Truman
following the devastation of World War II.
America’s post-war commitment to Europe and Japan
was a beautiful demonstration
our Nation’s character.

Secretary of State George C. Marshall
said on June 5, 1947:
“Our policy is directed not against any country or doctrine
but against hunger, poverty, desperation and chaos.
Its purpose should be the revival of a working economy
in the world so as to permit the emergence
of political and social conditions
in which free institutions can exist.”

Yes,
the United States of America
worked to rebuild post-war Japan and Europe,
investing $22 billion assistance
across 16 war-torn nations from 1946 to 1952.

  Love
My Dear Friends,
means what it means
everywhere in the New Testament
– to do good to, to care for, to bless,
to sacrifice for.

Jesus teaches us
that we should not return
evil for evil, harm for harm,
but rather return good for evil
to anyone who harms us.

Harry S. Truman faced some of the most complex issues to ever face any World leader.

“But I say unto you,
Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you,
and Pray for them.”
Matthew 5:44

This act of Christian compassion
following the worst war in History,
stopped the cycle of hatred and violence
that started with World War I
and continued into World War II.
This act of Forgiveness and Love
turned adversaries into allies
and prevented
World War III.
.

If you look deep enough
into the Hearts of others,
there is good
in every Human Being.
We are all
worthy of Redemption,
Forgiveness,
Salvation.

“God’s desire
is for all to be saved:
This is good and acceptable
in the sight of God our Savior,
who desires all men to be saved
and to come to the Knowledge
of the Truth.”

1 Timothy 2:3-4

God
Loves us,
each and everyone.

Countless
are the times
that individual
Human Beings,
who strayed
from the Righteous Path,
have seen the
Light.

These beautiful People
opened their Hearts
and let the LOVE
of God
flow over them.

      There is no greater I, than We.

The mind of man
can be filled
with myth, illusion and
contradiction.
We
can be persuaded
to do anything.
History
is replete
with our errors.

But God’s Love
can touch us
one time,
and last
for a Lifetime.

Our Love
is nothing to fear.
But
the absence of Love
is the cause
of all our fears.

There is
a vast and deep ocean
of tears
shed
because the fearful
never saw
the Light of Love
streaming down
from Above.

The way back,
cannot be found
in the dark.
One
must clearly see
the way.
And the path
lies through
the beautiful, precious
Human Heart,
as it listens
to the Word
of God.

If
we but ask,
God
will show us
the way.
Our Prayers
will
be answered.

There is
no greater force
on Earth,
than the Power
of Love.

Goodnight.

        One must clearly see the way.

The Beautiful Way Life Was Intended / Bergamot Benefits / Friday: Rollerland West and Shakespeare

“When one realizes
one is asleep,
at that moment
one is already half-awake.”
– P. D. Ouspensky

lilies-flowers

Experience life in the beautiful way it was intended.

Deep, powerful knowledge
Is the key
To inspired thinking
and
Finding intelligent solutions
To problems.

And inspired awareness
Is the key
To a beautiful way
Of Life.

White-Flowers

A richness in the texture of living.

Each of us,
In a very unique way,
Possess a pathway
For higher awareness
Of Love
And of living,
To experience our life
In the beautiful way
It was intended,
To change this life
And create new possibilities,
And revolutionize the way
We comprehend the complex
and mysterious place that is
The Galaxy
Of our Heart.

lake

        The beauty waiting within.

Shrouded by the dust of living,
We are able to be
Liberated through a view
Of Love.
We can remove the things if life
That block our vision
To the awareness of
Love’s presence.

For Love
Is your natural,
God given inheritance,
And it is there
For you to see,
It is there
For you
to
Let it be.

“Your arms reach out to me
and my heart is free

From all care,
for it knows
there are no gloomy skies

When seen through the eyes
of those who are blessed
with love.”

– Max Steiner

There is no need
To let sorrow abound,
To enter your life
And go
Around and around,
From beginning to beginning,
In a perpetual motion
That you keep
Spinning.

“Like a circle in a spiral,
like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
on an ever spinning reel
As the images unwind,
like the circles that you find in
The windmills of your mind!”
– M.Bergman, M. Legrand, A. Bergman

phlox-flower

Faith, and the mountain, are within.

To truly harvest life,
Search for the intensity
Of Human Kindness,
Which reflects our humanity,
And creates the Loving forces
Which go beyond this moment,
Beyond what we think and imagine,
Beyond things as they are,
To what they can be,
To the beauty waiting
Within.

oleander

             Create new possibility.

To see all things
Are truly possible,
Reveals
Facets of meaning
And a richness in the texture
Of being,
Of Loving
And of living.

“When all is come to pass
The storm has breathed it’s last
And the rain
Has washed our fears away,
Love will fall on us all
And we can smile again.”
– Hayley Westenra

The Miraculous application of Love
Is a balm on every wound.
And as we begin to understand
More deeply
Why love is such a necessary element
In the healing of the world,
We need do no more
Than trust
In what the Gospel
says.

“God is Love,
and all who live in Love
live in God,
and God lives in them.”
– 1 John 4:16

Jesus says
Something remarkable
In Matthew 17:20:

“If your Faith were the size
Of even the smallest of seeds,
The mustard bush,
We would be able to
Move Mountains.”

Your faith
Can move a mountain.
How?

Revolutionize the way we understand our Hearts.

My Dear Friends,
Faith,
And the mountain,
Are within.

“You are given
the gifts of the Gods,

you create your reality.”
– Jane Roberts

We are beings
Of a very fragile
And a very human
Dimension and degree,
But with a Faith
That can move mountains.
Faith
Can also move us
To
Love one another.

We not only have the strength,
Through Faith,
To Love each other,
We have the Commandment:
‘You shall love your neighbor
as yourself.’ 
– Mark 12:28-31

I have always felt
That Love was misunderstood.
Love is not
An unusual, abnormal,
Infrequent state of being.

Love
Created us.
It is who we are,
What we are doing
And where we are going.
It
Is our destiny.

I felt
So deeply Loved
As a child.
I cannot remember feeling
Anything but Love,
In the presence of
My precious Mother,
Marie.

Anton

     Anton Chekhov

Love
Births Love.
Tis the way
It was,
And shall always
Be.

“Perhaps the feelings
that we experience

when we are in love
represent a normal state.
Being in love
shows a person
who he should be.”
– Anton Chekhov

orchids

        Go beyond the moment.

“It doesn’t matter who you love,
or how you love,
but that you love”
– Rod McKuen

We have, essentially,
Three types of understanding,
Empirical, philosophical and
Spiritual.

Yes,
Mankind has entertained in his mind
A philosophical
And an empirical beginning.
But the beginning
Of beginning,
Was a Spiritual Birth.

My Dear Friends,
The question is NOT:

“Who am I?”
but rather,
“Whom do I have
the freedom to be?”
– Philip J. Mancuso

God fosters the Spirit of freedom.
He knows that the Human Spirit
Requires freedom
.

And the more disciplined we are,
The more freedom we have.

Sin limits our future choices.
Drugs and alcohol and tobacco
Quickly become addictions.
They become the master
And we, the unaware slave.

Abuse of your precious freedom
Will paralyze your life,
And remove tomorrow
From the landscape
Of your every
Desire,
Your every dream.

“If freedom of speech is taken away,
then dumb and silent we may be,
led like sheep to the slaughter.”
  – George Washington

Yes,
Every day we make choices

That determine our destiny.
Each day
God gives us
A most beautiful gift
,
A God like quality:
Freedom,
To think,
To choose,
To be.

“But to every man there openeth,
A high way and a low,
And every mind decideth,
The way his soul shall go.

One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
‘Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales,
That tells the way we go.”
– Ella Wheeler Wilcox

columbine

            Truly harvest life.

God gave us Life
And Love,
To you and to me.
And it is a Life
And Love so
Beautiful,
And so powerful,
It is,
My Friends,
Beyond
Belief.

” Go more deeply into your heart
and feel yourself expand.
Get as large as the universe.
Feel your connection to all things.
Let that connection hold you and Love you.
Become the Universe.”

2 Bergamot Benefits:
Raise the
HDL “Good” Cholesterol and
Relieve Anxiety Naturally

Bergamot is a small, pear-shaped citrus fruit
that grows on small trees that are cultivated
almost exclusively in coastal regions of southern Italy.
Bergamot essential oil, made mainly from the peels,
is very aromatic and commonly used in
aromatherapy and perfumery.

Is bergamot becoming
an alternative to statin drugs?

Researchers conducted a study using
a higher dose of bergamot extract
as a substitute for statins in 32 patients
who could not tolerate statins due to the side effects
of these drugs.

After stopping statins for 2 months,
they took 500 mg of bergamot extract in capsule form
three times a day for a total of 1500 mg per day.
After 30 days, the average reduction in total cholesterol
was 25%, with an average 27.6% reduction in LDL cholesterol.
There was no re-appearance of side effects.

The Beauty Of God’s Recreation / TWO Cans of Sugary Drinks a Day = heart attack, diabetes and stroke / Trip: Half Price Books and Movie – The Martian

rose-flower

God in His Wisdom Provides.

We struggle
To rebuild ourselves each day,
Some days, minute by minute.
And there are years
Of not knowing,

Of not feeling,
That so very many hearts
Like yours and mine,
Have been broken
By what someone has done,

And can’t undo.

flower

   Hold out your arms.

My Dear Friends,
Never feel that you are
Alone.
Given time,
Everyone suffers.
Look around,
And you will know.
But, we need to know
More
To survive and thrive.
And a good place to start
Is to recognize that

“Your joy
is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well
from which your laughter rises
was oftentimes filled
with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow
carves into your being,

the more joy you can contain.”
– Kahlil Gibran

  Kahlil Gibran

To empty the vessel
Of your precious being
Of all the suffering and pain,
To prepare your Life
To begin again,
Forgive
Those who transgress
Against you.

Forgiveness
Furrows deep into
The Landscape of Being,
To bury what needs
Never to be thought of
Again,
Leading to remarkable discover,
That we are standing alone,
No longer holding those who
Who harmed us by the hand.

For we drop the hand
Of the one we hold
In mindful madness,
Til’ its meaning has lost
All pretense of being.

flowers 2

Formed by God into the Flower Of Your Precious Being.

To forgive
Finds us no longer
In the wake of
Dark and deepening shadows
Drifting across the landscape
Of precious Life.
It lifts the veil of awareness,
Like nothing ever happened.
Nothing.

Those who inflict pain,
As Jesus said,
“Do not know
What they do.”

They have not been Blessed
To understand
What it feels like

To find the Comfort,
The Kindness,

The Deep and Abiding Compassion
Found in Hearts
Touched by the Grace of God.

lisianthus-flowers

Embrace the Life He gives.  It is His Love.

We can never find healing
Looking back.
Today
Is the doorway
To tomorrow,
And tomorrow is yesterday
Lived over and over again,
Or transformed
Into today’s Dream
Forever.

The building blocks,
To restore what God
Has made in you

Are all around.
They come in many Blessed shapes,
And very many forms.
They are what you may least expect,
And more beautiful and durable
Than what we have found
In Life.

God in His Wisdom
Provides.
He always has,
Always will.
But often we fail to look
Through the lens
Of our hearts.

The mortar He will use
To cement the pieces
Of us that are left,

“Is the Peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
and will guard
your hearts and your minds”.

(Philippians 4:7)

Of our Hearts Renewed,

My friends,
please keep pouring those
TOXIC soft drinks
down the drain.
Love your children enough
and BE STRONG enough
to let them live
long and happy lives.
There are healthy alternatives:
Fruit juices,
Unsweetened Tea,
Coffee (both have 60 antioxidants),
or how about
good old fashioned
WATER.
Now, I drink to that!

Sugar
is the favorite food
of CANCER!!!

Folks,
Your tears can easily
water the flowers
you place upon the
grave
of your precious child.

Through Loving Eyes

A Mother will always see
Through her child’s eyes,
Always feel the vibrant Love,
Fast flowing like a raging torrent
To the Eternal Sea
Of God’s Love
In you
And me.

My Mother’s tears of pain and joy
I keep deep inside
This heart of mine,
As I find my tears
Do not belong to me.

It doesn't get much better than this.

They flow everlastingly
Through those that Love,

In Eternal Rivers
That nourish Life,
And wash away
Our sins,
Assuage our grief,
And transform,
In the mirror of our memory
Into tears of forgiveness,
Comforted by our Belief.

Clouds of disbelief
Only block the Sun,
Placed in the Firmament Above
By God on the second day

Of His Love.
Into this vast expanse,
He set the moon, the stars and the sun,
To shine down upon
Everyone.

Some people never see the Light until the day they die. – Neil Diamond

Do not let the darkness
And doubt o
f others,
The fear that knows not Love,

Shield you
From His Comfort.
The shelter you seek
From the storms of living
Dwells not in the elements of life.
It lay in wait,
Sacred and Silent in patient Vigil,
Inside a heart
Filled with Love,
Devoid of hate.

You can travel for miles
In your child’s smiles.

Into a tomorrow
Which will never end.

Such is the Love of God
In you,
Eternal Love
Flowing everlastingly,
And in the very same moment,
Into and out of
A Vast Sacred Sea.

  The reason God is real.

  Unique
In all the ways of the world,
The Blessed Love of every child

Is the Salvation
Of all Mankind,
The justification for being,
The Hope of tomorrow fulfilled,
The end of all doubt,
The reason
God is real.

God Loved us
Enough to share
The Love of a Child,
His Child.

And no greater Love
Could He feel.

His Child looked at Mankind
Through other children’s eyes,
And shared the vibrant Love,
The Eternal Warmth,
Hope everlasting,
From Above.

We pretend never and are Forever.

Every kind thought
Tells us who we are,
Every deed
Where we are,
Every Prayer
Why we are.

And what is Love?

Easy to ask,
So easy to see.
Love is the Mother
Who gives us life.
Love is the breath
Of her precious being.

Like the soft wind blowing,
As God formed man from
The dust of this Earth
And breathed into his nostrils
The breath of Love we call Life,
And child of clay
Became a living being.

A Mother whispers of this
Love Everlasting,
As she looks deeply into our eyes
Promising tomorrow,
With Love
That never dies.

rose

  Such is the Love all around us.

What is Love?

Love is God in us.
Ask and He will reveal

Love,
Pure,

Powerful,
Everlasting,
The only thing
That is Real.

If we could but know
That every child is ours,
That every child is us,

And we are all Sacred Children
Of God.

Our children are of our Love,
Our lives of the far reaches of Forever,
And our sins made of
What is given,
To be forgiven.

Leaves

My friends,
The Love of God is in us
And all around us,
In the
Leaves that flutter
Gently in the wind,

The Colors of evening shades,
Shadows of silver
Floating slowly over
The landscapes of our brief lives,
As we pretend never,
And are Forever.
Such is the Love all around us,
Here,
And ever after.

A Mother’s precious Love,
Is a Sacred Sacrifice
For those who come after.
The precious Love of a Mother,
Forever in Love,
And forever after.

Every child is ours, every child is us.

“Children are mankind’s best and last hope.
Like the young of all creatures, they want to like,
they want to love, and they will love,
unless deliberately and carefully taught otherwise.
For this is the true education
– of the heart.”
Oskar Schindler

Oskar and Emilie Schindler – With rare courage and deep compassion they saved hundreds of precious lives during World War II.

Matter is NOT the ONLY reality

Quantum mechanics has questioned

the material foundations of the world
by showing that atoms and subatomic particles
are not really solid objects,
they do not exist with certainty
at definite spatial locations and definite times.
Most importantly, Quantum Mechanics
explicitly introduced the mind
into its basic conceptual structure,
since it was found that particles being observed
and the observer, are linked.
This phenomenon implies
that the consciousness of the observer
is vital to the existence
of the physical events being observed,
and that mental events
affect the physical world.”

Matter is NOT the only reality.
In fact,
It may not be reality
at all.

to study non-physical phenomena,

it will make more progress in one decade
than in all the previous centuries
of its existence.”

The MIND diet
may slow brain aging by 7.5 years

The MIND diet,
which is short for “Mediterranean-DASH Diet
Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay,”
was developed by Martha Clare Morris, ScD,
a nutritional epidemiologist, and her colleagues.

Everyone experiences decline with aging;
and Alzheimer’s disease is now
the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.

 As the name suggests,
the MIND diet is a hybrid of the Mediterranean
and DASH
(Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diets.
Both have been found to reduce the risk
of cardiovascular conditions,
like hypertension, heart attack and stroke. read more

The MIND diet
has 15 dietary components,
including 10 “brain-healthy food groups”

The study found that to avoid the devastating effects of
cognitive decline, you must limit intake
of the designated unhealthy foods,
especially butter (less than 1 tablespoon a day),
sweets and pastries, whole fat cheese,
and fried or fast food.

To adhere to and benefit from the MIND diet,
a person would need to eat
at least three servings of whole grains,
a green leafy vegetable
and one other vegetable every day,
along with a glass of red-grape juice,
snack most days on nuts,
have beans every other day or so,
eat poultry and berries at least twice a week
and fish at least once a week.

Berries are the only fruit specifically
to be included in the MIND diet.
Blueberries are one of the more potent foods
in terms of protecting the brain.

Human Kindness Overflowing / Mother Teresa / Car A/C and Dangerous Benzene

beggar-2

Bright before me, the signs implore me, help the needy and show them the way.

“Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey.
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it’s gonna rain today”
I Think It’s Going To Rain Today
(Randy Newman)

Beautiful-Sky

Human kindness overflowing is indescribably beautiful.

My dear friends,
The beauty of music and art and nature,
We can enjoy,
Cherish what they bring into our lives.
But human kindness
Overflowing,
Possesses beauty beyond
What we can behold.

It transcends the boundaries
Of what can be defined.
Our Love for each other
Is reachable,
Teachable,
Indescribably beautiful,
And far, far beyond
The value of anything else
In this Life.

Sometimes the only way to describe our precious Love is with the word – indescribable.

The true wealth
Of this world
Is within.
To find it
You need do nothing.
Close you eyes
So that you may see.
Ask God to see the Light
In your Heart.
Wait,
Accept,
Let it be.
.

Broken highways
Lead to empty dreams.
And we cannot
Feign from wondering about
What we do,
Thinking
We chase Love away.

But Truth,
If we have Faith
And face it:
We are all in poverty,
Poor in some way,
Spirit, Faith, Hope,
Love,
On what we come to believe
Is such a sad day.

magic-whales

Destinies cavernous, beautiful, unknown.

But Hope
And a wealth of Love untold,
Unfathomable to behold,
Is inscribed in Loving Ways,
Revealed in
The Holy Word,
That lay beside us
Within our reach,
In all this time,
The time of need.
.

You, my friend,
Are the Sacred Vessel of your Soul,
Beautifully expressed as light and energy,
A biological being for the Eternal Spirit
That brings what your perceive,
Is life,
And moves through you.

Within the Sacred Vessel you are,
Is and always was,
The precious Love of God,
Passed down from Heaven Above,
Imprinted upon our Heart’s desire,
To stem the ever ebbing tide
Of unending tears,
Illusory desires,
And end such suffering
As becomes unbearable,
Of so very many years.

“Nature is filled with the utmost perfection.

Utmost perfection

From the spiral center of a sunflower,
to the cracks in drying mud,
to the intricate lacing in a dragonfly wing,
there is beauty, symmetry,
and wholeness
in everything.

So too are [we] perfect,
arranged by nature
to carry us

gracefully through life.”
– Dr. Angela Carter

Your Heavenly Father
In His Precious Word,
Wants you to know,
To feel
To be assured,
Beyond all and every doubt,
That you are deeply loved.

Our days can become such long,

Love is not Love until the moment you accept it.

Lonely highways,
Traveling, as it were,
And may always be,
Fast and past,
Never knowing where
We are truly going,
Dotted with signs
Blurry before us,
Signs that never
Show the way.
As we travel so fast,
They cannot be read,
They are always in the past.

And so we gaze into the midnight mirror
In search of meaning.
Looking into reflections long, long gone,
Never knowing the arrow of time
Moves you in another direction, on and on,
To destinies cavernous, beautiful, unknown.

Macro-Eye

But reflections of the Heart,
Of Hope and Prayer,
Lead to abiding Love,
To being there,
To finding that which still sparkles in our dreams,
To a discovery few have known:
Heaven is within you,
You are already Home.

God is in His Heaven,
And Heaven
In your Heart.

Open this Gift,
For Love is not Love,
Until the moment
You accept it.

Frozen-Roses

Love is not in frozen flowers or smiles.
It is always fluid to the moment.
Always in motion.
Love is in the air,
On tips of wings,
In eyes of compassion,
In the smiles your Heart brings,
In tears of emotion
To flood the barren plain,
For those forgotten
Those in need,
And in tears of Thanksgiving,
Pouring down like morning rain.

As Mother Teresa accepted
The Nobel Peace Prize,
She canceled the scheduled celebratory banquet
And had the $7,000 it would have cost
Sent to her mission in Calcutta,
where it would feed 400 people for a full year.
She accepted the prize
“In the name of the hungry,
of the naked,
of the homeless,
of the blind,
of all those who feel unwanted,
unloved, uncared for”.

In a demonstration that her life’s work
transcended any single religious doctrine,
representatives of many other faiths –
Anglican, Hindu, Islamic, Sikh, Buddhist and Parsi –
Rose to offer messages and prayers
In her honor.

In the name of those who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for.

Jesus emphasized
That what flows from the Heart
Is what matters most.
We are set free to make choices
And to set others free to choose.
We are free to speak to God.
We are given freedom
To thrust aside the walls of exclusion
And give healing love
Directly to one another.

Mother-Teresa-with-QuotesLife
– by Mother Teresa

 Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is love, enjoy it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is tragedy, confront it.
Life is a dream, realize it.

A crowd of as many as a million people
turned out to pay their final respects.

  “Truly, I say to you,
as you did it to one of the least of these
my brothers and sisters,
you did it to me”
– The Gospel of Saint Matthew 25:40

Do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car

Don’t drink water in plastic bottles left in the car either .

Benzene

Now this is very interesting! My car’s manual says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on the A/C.
WHY ?

No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before.

We wonder where this stuff comes from, but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer-causing incidents.
Many people are in their cars the first thing in the morning, and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.

As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill. Please pass this on to as many people as possible. Guess, its not too late to make some changes.

Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.
Open the windows after you enter your car and then after a couple of minutes, then turn ON the AC.

Here’s why:
According to research, the car’s dashboard, seats, a/c ducts, in fact ALL of the plastic objects in your vehicle, emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin. A BIG CARCINOGEN. Take the time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car when you open it, and BEFORE you start it up.

In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure can cause Leukemia and increases the risk of some cancers. It can also cause miscarriages in pregnant women.

The “acceptable” Benzene level indoors is: 50mg per sq.ft.
A car parked indoors, with windows closed, will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene – 8 times the acceptable level.

If parked outdoors in the sun, at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg,40 times the acceptable level.
People who get into the car, keeping the windows closed, will eventually inhale excessive amounts of the BENZENE toxin.
Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidneys and liver. What’s worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

So friends, please open the windows and doors of your car –
give it some time for the interior to air out -(dispel the deadly stuff) – before you enter the vehicle.

Thought: ‘When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.’

    Albert Einstein

The most beautiful emotion we can experience
is the mysterious.
It is the power of all true art and science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead.
To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists,
manifesting itself as the highest wisdom
and the most radiant beauty,
which our dull faculties can comprehend
only in their most primitive forms
– this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center
of true religiousness.
In this sense, and in this sense only,
I belong to the rank of devoutly religious men.

– Albert Einstein
