“Are we
sleep-walking through
our waking state
or wake-walking
through our dreams?”
                         – from Waking Life

starry-night

Let us be grateful
to those who give us Joy.
They are the gardeners
by whom our Hearts flower.

In this Beautiful and Joyous
month of December,
my Prayer for you,
and your precious Family,
is that you find many Flowers
blooming in your Hearts.

Such feelings
as Joy may bring
will find you
ever nearer to
Paradise.

Windows
throw their lonely lights
against a blackened sky.
But blacker than night
are lonely eyes
casting all hope
out into the dark,
eyes without sight,
that never see into
another Soul,
never share Life’s
pleasure and pain,
never truly know
something is dreadfully wrong,
if you never hear
Love’s Eternal song.

green-star-b

My Dear Parents,
cradled by your Loving arms,
your precious child
will never feel closer
to God.

Your child’s Life
without Love,
will never know,
never feel,
the warmth of God’s
Embrace,
never feel the Beat
of His Heart,
you think is yours.

The sweeping hands of time
flow swiftly by,
but can become frozen
by the Dawn’s early Light
of Love,
that remains long buried
but within sight.

Life
to be fully lived
must be Loved,
and Blessed
from Above.

“Though I speak with the tongues
of men and of Angels,
but have not Love,
I have become sounding brass
or a clanging cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy,
and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
and though I have all Faith,
so that I could remove mountains,
but have not Love,
I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods
to feed the poor,
and though I give my body to be burned,
but have not Love,
it profits me nothing

– 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

  Flowers bloom in your Heart.

Christmas,
My Dear Friends,
is so much more
than a Blessed Holiday.
Just listen with your Heart,
and you can hear
the Angels sing
of Infinite Love
and the Life it will bring,
in Praise of the Birth
of One who brings
Hope Everlasting,
Compassion and Light
and Love.
.

Two thousand years ago
Life was often born
of agony’s pain,
manifested in so much
suffering.

For in truth
the living then
was a lie,
and mankind found despair
in endless supply.
.
Through the haze
of such bitter oppression and hatred,
replete within the folds
of History,
God did not leave His Children
in the dust of denial
.

Our Lord
heard the cries deep into the night.
He took mankind by the hand again,
  so we could
together
learn to laugh again

  and dream,
  and hope again,
to cherish Life
and Love again.
hands-and-sun

He took mankind by the hand again.

Yes,
the cries that began
from such agony,
from all mankind’s suffering,
can now be reflect in tears
of Joy.

Cradled by the Loving Arms
of the Child of God,
we,
all Humanity,
were never nearer
to God.
.
Oh Yes,
Rejoice My Friend,
for now there is
no end,
Life can be ever after,
and Heaven within.

Of all the Gifts
God could bring,
the Greatest Gift
was His Son,
Christ the King.

From dust
were we created.
But through such Love
as we cannot fathom,
our Father in Heaven Above
gave us Life,
gave us His Love.
And in so doing,
revealed to us
the greatest Truth,
that Life and Love
are one,
they are the same.

To find God
is to have His Face
Revealed to You
in Your Heart,
for God Dwells in Man.
.
“Do you not know
that you
are the temple of God,

and that the Spirit of God
dwells in you?”
– 1 Corinthians 3:16
.
Yes,
Christmas Day
is celebration
of much more than a day.
For when this precious Baby
opened His Eyes,
the Face of God
was shining upon
all mankind.

Goodnight.

Trusted guide to mental, emotional and social Health:

High-fiber, cancer-fighting foods

Whole grains: whole-wheat pasta, raisin bran, barley, oatmeal, oat bran muffins, popcorn, brown rice, whole-grain or whole-wheat bread

Fruit: raspberries, apples, pears, strawberries, bananas, blackberries, blueberries, mango, apricots, citrus fruits, dried fruit, prunes, raisins

Legumes: lentils, black beans, split peas, lima beans, baked beans, kidney beans, pinto, chick peas, navy beans, black-eyed peas
Vegetables: broccoli, spinach, dark green leafy vegetables, peas, artichokes, corn, carrots, tomatoes, Brussels sprouts

Simple ways to add more fiber to your diet:
– Use brown rice instead of white rice
– Substitute whole-grain bread for white bread
– Choose a bran muffin over a croissant or pastry
– Snack on popcorn
instead of potato chips
– Eat fresh fruit such as a pear, a banana, or an apple (with the skin)
– Have a baked potato, including the skin, instead of fried potatoes
– Enjoy fresh carrots, celery, or bell peppers with a hummus or salsa, instead of fried chips
Use beans instead of always using ground meat in chili, casseroles, tacos, and even burgers (bean burgers can taste great)
Drink plenty of water. Fiber absorbs water so the more fiber you add to your diet, the more fluids you should drink. Water is also essential for fighting cancer. It stimulates the immune system, removes waste and toxins, and transports nutrients to all of your organs.

The longer you look, the more you will discover.

The roots of our Being
are intertwined with all
God’s Creatures on Earth.
We are blended
Earth and Spirit,
Fire and Water,
and transparent
to God.
Those of us who look,
can observe a Sacred Image
of themselves
absorbed onto the Infinite
Canvass of Life.
The longer you look,

Our lives are Lovingly painted

God is in billions and

Mother,
you may think you gave
Life to a precious Child.
But in Truth,
a Child brings you
back to Life.
And the Sacred Life
that is your Child,
comes through you
not from you.

“Your childrenKhalil_Gibran
are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters
of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you
but not from you.

And though they are with you,
yet they belong not to you.”
– Khalil Gibran

Your Child
is the pathway
to Infinity,
to Love immeasurable,
and more Joy
than you can ever
imagine.
.
My Friends,
to cultivate Love
we MUST dream,
we must play,
eat well, rest, meditate,
share our Divine Love
with those around us
and transcend the moment
to reach for the stars,
where one day,
we will surely be.

What God wants for you is real.

Hold firm

to your vision of what Love
can be,
of what you
can become.
For these things
are true:
your Love can be
all that your Heart
desires.
You can become
what you dream.
 .
Wake up
to the reality
that what surrounds you
is not real.
.
Look about you.
God’s children,
young and old,
are truly suffering
from the illusions of this Life
and the conditions of living
WE have imposed
upon ourselves.
WE created this
artificial World.
And it is becoming
an environment
more and more difficult
for our precious children
to survive.

To cultivate Love we MUST dream.

What God wants for you
is real.
And what He wants
is simple:
He wants you to
be Joyful,
to know of His Love for you,
and to share
ALL the Love
He has for you.
.
Go to the Lord
in Prayer.
He will reveal
what He wants for
you.
Open His Sacred Word
and read.
He will reveal
what is truly Real.

Where the Ocean
greets so many streams of Life,
voices unknown

the Joy of reunion.

The Waters of Life

reunite.

Such is Love of God.
He waits patiently
for you
to join Him
in the vast Ocean
of His Love.

“I could see you
in singing skies and dancing waters,

By sharing the gift of God’s Love
you will become interdependent
and transformed
and you will find
you are stronger than you,
and no longer
are you
just you.

My Dear Friends,
we were placed
in a beautiful garden.
The Gardener is inviting us
to bring color back

the Nectar of Life.

Loving
with all your Heart
is all God wants
until the end

Foods That Help Fight Depression
read more from WebMD.com

Turkey

The traditional Thanksgiving bird has the protein building-block tryptophan, which your body uses to make serotonin. That’s a brain chemical that plays a key role in depression, researchers say. In fact, some antidepressant drugs work by targeting the way your brain uses serotonin. You can get the same mood-boosting effect from chicken and soybeans.

Brazil Nuts

This snack is rich in selenium, which helps protect your body from tiny, damaging particles called free radicals. One study found that young people who didn’t have enough of this nutrient in their diets were more likely to be depressed. The researchers couldn’t say that low selenium caused depression, though. Just one Brazil nut has almost half your daily requirement of the mineral so be careful to limit how many you eat. Other foods with this mineral include brown rice, lean beef, sunflower seeds, and seafood.

Carrots

They’re full of beta-carotene, which you can also get from pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Studies have linked this nutrient to lower levels of depression. There’s not enough evidence to say that it can prevent the disorder, but it can’t hurt to get more in your diet.

Clams and Mussels

These seafood favorites are a good source of B-12. Some studies say that people with low levels of the vitamin are more likely to have depression. It may be that a lack of it causes a shortage of a substance called s-adenosylmethionine (SAM), which your brain needs to process other chemicals that affect your mood. If you’re looking for other B-12 foods, try lean beef, milk, and eggs.

Coffee

A jolt of caffeine can be a pick-me-up that helps you feel more motivated. But if you have postpartum depression or panic disorder, some studies suggest that it might make your symptoms worse. Other researchers say a cup of joe can lower your risk of getting depression, though they’re not sure why.

Leafy Greens

They’re packed with folate, which your brain cells need to work well and which may help protect against depression. Food manufacturers in the U.S. add this vitamin, also known as B9, to enriched grains like pasta and rice. You can also get it from lentils, lima beans, and asparagus.

Salmon

This and other fish like herring and tuna are high in polyunsaturated fats. Researchers think those can help you fight depression. One type of these fats, called omega-3 fatty acids, may help brain cells use chemicals that can affect your mood. A few small studies show that people who weren’t depressed had higher levels of omega-3s than those with the mood disorder.

Milk

It’s a good source of vitamin D. If you have very low levels of this nutrient in your body, that can sometimes cause depression. One Norwegian study found that people who took a vitamin D supplement were less depressed a year later than those who didn’t. Don’t like milk? Boost the D in your diet with enriched cereals and juices, and canned fish.

Caution: Junk Food

It may be fast and filling, but these processed foods can be bad news for your mood. Scientists have studied how diets high in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fatty foods affect how you feel. Many found some link between these unhealthy eats and depression. Your best bet: a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Caution: Alcohol

Heavy drinking can make depression symptoms worse over time, because alcohol makes your brain less active. It also can make antidepressant medications less effective.

Into the Dreams We Love / Prevent Food Poisoning / Friday: Main Event

“If Life’s essence
is securely hidden,
it may be for a good reason:
should man uncover
many more of its secrets
while he is still Spiritually so immature,
it seems he could do himself
and his world
serious harm.”

                “Lend me an ear.”                   – William Shakespeare and Mama Bear

There are many stories.
But some
Are never read.
Others never written,
And can never be read.

A precious few are created
As your children
Are tucked in bed,
As you kiss them
Goodnight
On the top
Of their head.

And their stories are written
In dreams they have,
Where they lay
Their little head.

   What we mirror tells a story.

When Hearts speak
Louder than words,
Life drifts into
The dreams we Love,
When we close
Our tired eyes
And meet
Our very best friends,
The ones
Who opened the door
And let you in,
Into their Hearts
And into their lives.
The ones
Like Mom and Dad,
Who kissed you
On top of your head,
Who said without words
Spoken or read,
That Love
Is what we are,
Why we are alive,
And the only thing
That should
Ever be
Said.

wolves

Hearts speak louder than words.

And all that Love
Enters the fiber
Of their Being,
As they become
A person
Reborn,
Who lives for tomorrow
And Loves today.
Who tells a Love story
Written with a smile,
That sounds like a song,
A story they share
In waking dreams,
Over and over again.

We each are clothed
In reflections
All around.
What we mirror
Tells a story
Not our own,
But it is there.
It is to be.
And it remains
For all to see,
Eternally.

And what appears
Speaks so loudly,
No one can hear
What voices say,
For this language
Is beyond the horizon
Of who we are,
What we see,
What we can even imagine
Shall ever be.

It is the language
Of God’s Love
For you
And for me.

And it lives

In reflections all around,
In the mirror
Of our lives,
In a story
That becomes
Our own.

Accept the Love of God.
Let your life be
A Love Story.
Let it be.

What we mirror tells a story.

                            Does Canola Oil Cause Cancer?

Not too many people know that frying with canola oil releases toxic, carcinogenic fumes. In recent epidemiological studies, it was shown that high lung cancer rates in Chinese women were linked to wok cooking with canola (also called rapeseed) oil. Consumption of canola oil has been shown to cause fibrotic lesions of the heart, CNS degenerative disorders, prostate cancer, anemia, lung cancer, constipation, irritation of the mucous membranes and many toxic effects, according to many nutritionists and biochemists.”

A superior alternative to canola oil – and indeed the healthiest oil for cooking – is, and has always been, OLIVE OIL. Like canola oil, it’s rich in monounsaturated fats, which help reduce “unhealthy” LDL cholesterol and boost “healthy” HDL cholesterol – without the toxic effects of canola. Olive oil also has a high smoke point (that is, the temperature at which a cooking fat or oil begins to degrade both the flavor and nutritional value of food), which makes it ideal for frying. read more

The Heart No One Knew / Friday: Fort Worth Stock Show / Zoo Spring Break Camp

“If you can feel your pain

if you can feel the pain of others,
then you are
Human
.”

–  Priyanshu Joshi

Love can never return to the hand you never extend.

More than success,
Far, far more than victory
In Love and Life,
Is our belief
In ourselves,
To say
What is in our Hearts,
To do
What we know
To do,
And Love
Without condition
Everything and everyone
Around us.

For God’s Love
Is in every living thing.
And they love Life
Too.

“The bird, the weed and burrowing worm
are more than they seem
for, in truth,
they outline the invisible, crystalline
texture of the living planet.
Their bodies in space-time
are literally part
of the geometry of the Earth,
the track each one makes
throughout its life
defines a kind of
invisible fiber of Creation.”
– Guy Murchie

       God’s Love is in every living thing.

My Precious Friends,
Love can never return
To the voice
Never heard,
To the song
Never sung,
To the hand
You never extend,
To the Heart
No one knew
Was beating for them.

squirrell

             They love Life too.

Every Human Heart
Is whispering
The name of someone
It Loves.

We see far, far beyond
What our eyes behold,
Envisioning reflections
That mirror
The longings
Of a lost
And lonely Soul.

“All the oceans in the world,
can never hold the tears cried.”
 
– unknown

But,
There is a greater Good,
A cause unknown
To the feeble mind of mankind,
A Voice from Above,
From another Heart
That will never leave us
All alone.

    Love comes in many dimensions.

And where, oh where
Is Love?

Love is always
Coming home,
Searching,
Always searching,
For the way back
To the Heart
That was its
Own.

“I don’t want the heavens
or the shooting stars.
I don’t want gemstones or gold.
I want a steady hand, a kind soul.
I want to fall asleep and wake,
knowing my heart is safe.
I want to love,
and be loved.”

– Shana Abe

   Love is always coming home.

Dear Friends,
The greatest adventure
Of the Human Spirit
Is discovering the way
Back,
To the Love
That gave it Life,
To the Heart
That never left it all alone,
The Heart
Never really seen,
Never truly known.

And the pathway back,
Will lead you
Through a valley unknown,
Past shadows of doubt,
And clouds of despair.
Yes,
It needs to be shown.

“So we have come to know
and to believe
the love that God has for us.
God is love,
and whoever abides in love
abides in God,
and God abides in him.”
– 1 John 4:16

rino

The Heart that never left it all alone.

Love
Comes in many dimensions.
And True Love
Can be unrequited,
Never understood,
Never accepted
By the beloved,
Who may not be aware
Of such deep
And abiding
Affection,
Or consciously reject it,
Never knowing,
Never beholding
The Sacred, deeply fulfilling
Glow of being
In the Flower of Life,
Never feeling
The Warmth of truly
Unconditional Love.
Never understanding
That this Love
has
A reason for being.

Such Love
As God
Feels for you.

Anne Frank

 No one

                              Enough with the toxic chemicals!

From our friends at NaturalNews.com:

Every time you shower and shampoo with a toxic commercial product, you are opening the pores of your scalp with hot water, then driving those toxic chemicals into your skin by scrubbing your scalp.

This is why it’s so important that your shampoo and shower soap be exceptionally clean and free from toxic, synthetic chemicals that we all know promote cancer, dementia, kidney disease and liver disorders.

Most commercial shampoos are made in chemical factories, using cheap, toxic ingredients that ultimately harm your hair, your skin and your health. Popular brands almost never use quality ingredients because it’s simply too expensive for them to do so.

Natural and organic ingredients derived from plants are far more expensive than cheap, factory-made chemicals. Because we are all bathed in synthetic chemicals every day, it is important to reduce your chemical load as much as possible. The new Health Ranger’s Shampoo delivers nourishing, plant-based ingredients that help you feel calm and comfortable, knowing that you’re doing much more than just washing your hair – you’re also keeping your body clean of unnecessary synthetic chemicals.

This shampoo feels fantastic and has a silky texture and viscosity. It’s made with the finest organic coconut, olive and sunflower oil so it’s great to use as often as needed because it contains no harsh chemicals. It can even be used as a full body wash on adults and children.

The flower of awareness blossoms in your precious Heart.

Listen for the sounds
Of laughter,
The sounds
Of Children at play.
Listen for the opening
Of a door,
Life,
Shape shifted now
Into the Beauty of Joy,
The music that is without,
Is now within,
Lovingly enclosed
By the Circle of Life.

And when the door opens,
And the flower of awareness
Blossoms in your precious heart,
You will know
We are not alone,
And never shall we be.

Why Transferring Credit Card Balances
Is Brilliant

By Allison Franceour
July 8th 2015

Credit card issuers are in such fierce competition these days to attract new customers that most have started offering sweetheart deals to win you over, like ultra-long 0% introductory APR interest periods. By transferring your balance onto one of these cards, you immediately stop all interest charges during the introductory period (which is a LONG time).

For example, the BankAmericard offers 18 months at 0% APR, so during that entire 18 month intro period, you pay nothing in interest on any balance transferred. That could literally result in thousands of dollars in savings, and is simply a no brainer. With these offers out there, it just makes absolutely no sense to continue to pay high credit card interest on your current balances. Come on folks, wake up!

Well, without further ado, here are the very few cards offering great balance transfer specials: The Cards Which Not Only Don’t Charge, But Actually   – – – PAY YOU. – – –

                      Hey, take advantage of them for a change.

These are the very BEST deals I have found! Why not MAKE MONEY rather than pay exorbitantly high interest rates. Save the money and put it into a savings account for the kid’s college fund. Trust me, you will need the money then. By the way, when your introductory period is up, transfer the balance to another great offer. They are always out there.

Chase Freedom Card: 15 Months of 0% Intro APR, 1% Cash Back Rewards Program, $100 bonus. No annual fee.

Citi Double Cash Card: 15 Months of 0% Intro APR, 2% Cash Back Rewards Program. No annual fee. read more

Freezerless Refrigerator

refridg

My Dear Friends,
I am not a salesman for Sears. But, the Kenmore freezerless all-refrigerator is designed to operate efficiently in unheated locations with ambient temperature as low at 10 degrees Fahrenheit. You can place this refrigerator in a cold garage or basement without worrying that your fresh foods will freeze. Believe it or not, Eskimos buy refrigerators to keep food from freezing!

But this is what I especially like about it: it is a freezer with the thermostat set above freezing. The end result is that it is especially well insulated (to be a freezer) and saves money in electrical costs. We have one at the school (actually, our second model designed like this). We have no real need for a freezer at school and do not waste electricity to bring the temperature down to well below freezing. It is something I wanted to share with you.

And please, pass along your ideas to help each other. I will be glad to post them on this weblog. And LET ME HEAR FROM YOU. I need to know what you think, how you feel about this weblog. What are you interested in reading about?

Hey, were all just friends and family.

And we are more family than you were aware of. Geneticists have discovered that we ALL originated in heart of Africa, and from one female. In 1987, a group of genet­icists published a surprising study in the prestigious journal Nature

Yes, geneticists concluded that every person on Earth right now can trace his or her lineage back to a single common female ancestor who lived around 200,000 years ago. read more

The scientists named this common female ancestor Mitochondrial Eve. Isn’t it interesting that they would name her EVE.

Science and Theology are quickly merging – becoming ONE. The story that one has told is the story the other is telling.

Just as we are: ONE!

May God
always abide with you

and show you the way
to discover the Joy
hidden deep inside
your precious Heart.
Yes, my friend
It is there.

And if you miss love,
you miss life.”
