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.

Another Potent Weapon to Fight Cancer / School starts Sept. 2

“We are all functioning at a small fraction
of our capacity to live fully
in its total meaning
of loving, caring, creating and adventuring.
Consequently, the actualizing of our potential
can become the most exciting
adventure of our lifetime.”

We were so enamored and captivated with what happened in this bird bath, that numerous photographs were taken.

Groundbreaking new research on the cancer-fighting potential of vitamin C has made the pages of the peer-reviewed journal Science Translational Medicine. A team of researchers from the University of Kansas reportedly tested the effects of vitamin C given in high doses intravenously on a group of human subjects and found that it effectively eradicates cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

Note the unusual geometry and even spacing between the clusters of bubbles. Nature is full of fascinating wonder. And the most fascinating is YOU.

Building upon research pioneered by the late Linus Pauling, from Oregon State University who today is recognized as the world’s foremost proponent of therapeutic vitamin C, the new research involved injecting high doses of vitamin C into human ovarian cells. The tests were conducted in vitro in a lab, as well as directly in both mice and a group of 22 human subjects.

EACH bubble consisted of many other tiny bubbles! Perhaps YOU can explain this! Let us hear from you.

According to BBC News, the tests showed favorable results in all three models, as vitamin C effectively targeted the ovarian cancer cells while avoiding healthy cells. The benefits of high-dose vitamin C were also observed in conjunction with conventional chemotherapy treatments, which destroy all cells, both healthy and malignant, eventually leading to patient death.

“Patients are looking for safe and low-cost choices in their management of cancer,” stated Dr. Jeanne Drisko, a co-author of the study, to BBC News concerning the findings. “Intravenous vitamin C has that potential based on our basic science research and early clinical data.”

Researchers admit more human trials on intravenous vitamin C unlikely because drug companies cannot patent vitamins.

The next step for this type of research would typically involve applying these same parameters in a large-scale clinical human trial to see if they can be replicated and confirmed. While this new study is admittedly convincing on its own, the hurdles to gaining widespread acceptance of its findings include replicating them across a much larger human sample size.

But this may never actually take place. And the reason, says the research team, is that such trials require major funding that typically comes from pharmaceutical companies interested in developing a patented drug. Drug companies, in other words, are hardly interesting in promoting the medicinal benefits of natural substances like vitamin C, which stands to decimate the multibillion-dollar conventional cancer industry if word gets out about its benefits. [Now there is a truly sad commentary on our humanity.] By the way, studies also show inadequate vitamin C levels Boost the risk of the most deadly type of stroke by nearly fifty percent (50%).

“Because vitamin C has no patent potential, its development will not be supported by pharmaceutical companies,” says Qi Chen, lead author of the new study. “We believe that the time has arrived for research agencies to vigorously support thoughtful and meticulous clinical trials with intravenous vitamin C.”

Perhaps, my friends, Bob Dylan expresses it best:

“How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, ‘n’ how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, ‘n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?

Yes, ‘n’ how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.” 

The conventional medical industry’s response to these and similar findings over the years has been nothing short of derisive, which is to be expected. Having to rationalize decades of ushering cancer patients through the gauntlet of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery — with dismal results — while ignoring natural cancer-fighting alternatives like vitamin C is a hard pill to swallow for this powerful, high-profit industry, which would rather everyone ignore such findings than think critically about them.

“[A]scorbate is processed by the body in different ways when administered orally versus intravenously,” writes Heidi Ledford for Nature about this commonly misunderstood variance. The medical-industrial complex, it turns out, intentionally corrupts the conversation on vitamin C by convoluting the distinct effects of these very different delivery routes.

“Oral doses [of vitamin C] act as antioxidants, protecting cells from damage caused by reactive compounds that contain oxygen. But vitamin C given intravenously can have the opposite effect by promoting the formation of one of those compounds: hydrogen peroxide. Cancer cells are particularly susceptible to damage by such reactive oxygen-containing compounds.”
