What Gives Us Hope / 7 Things Mentally Healthy People Tell Themselves / Sept. 4: Classes Resume

“You see it as YOU are.”

Scientists have discovered
the Mirror of their own minds
inside the tiny atom.
They found
that the existence and behavior of particles

depends on the intent of the scientist.

What science now tells us,
is that WE
define Reality itself,
and Mankind can tell a new story
about what it really means
to be Human.

“You do not see
the World
as it is.

You see it
as YOU are.”

Anais Nin

Our Consciousness
makes all of the things
that were,
and are
and will ever be.

“Many scientists
who are still part of the scientific mainstream
are no longer afraid to openly state
that consciousness/awareness could,
in addition to space, time, matter and energy,
be a fundamental element of the world –
perhaps even more fundamental than space and time.
It may be a mistake to ban the Spirit from Nature.
It is even questioned as to whether matter
should be considered a fundamental
element of the Universe.”

Jeremy Hayward (Nuclear physicist)

If we happen to be Immortal,
then it must be
a form of consciousness that,
in some way,
survives death.

                   As YOU are.

My Dear Friends,
if consciousness is a non-physical entity,
then it
(“YOU and I”)
by the Grace of God
will survive death.

”Consciousness is a process
lying outside the laws that govern
the material World,
and it is just this immunity from the quantum rules
that allows the mind to turn possibility into actuality.”
That is,
consciousness emanates into the physical World
from the brain
and the Spiritual world interacts
with biological evolution.”
Nick Herbert (physicist)

Waiting just inside your Beautiful Heart.

You are,
like your Father,
the One you came from,
not through.
And as a Child of God,
YOU are a Creator,
and your Hopes and Dreams
can become your adventures,
and become real.

If
you are laced with doubt,
just look about!
This unreal World
was made very real,
by the likes and dislikes
of you and I.
And
everything in it
was preceded by
a conscious thought.

But,
do not cry.

Yes,
the mind of Mankind
can make
whatever it imagines.
And that gives us
Hope.

What is painful
to remember,
we can choose
to forgive and
forget.
The past is of great importance,
but it no longer
defines the future.

For
we have the
power
to give and Love and live
and forgive.

                    WE define Reality.

Oh yes,
we
can end
from the start,
make even more
devastating weapons,
create more suffering and grief,
more, much more,
hopelessness
and deep regret.

We have
the power.

But,
let us not forget,
we are both
Creator and Created,
and our Dreams and Imaginings
can be made more
than real.

And God said:
“I AM THAT I AM”.
It is a five word description
of the mirror
we call Life.

My Dear Friends,
God

also empowers us,
enables us,
to turn our fascination
with the power to Create,
into Love.

Waiting just inside
your Beautiful Heart
is our Tomorrow,
a day we can share,
a Love
that can last
Forever and ever.

                          If we walk together.

If
we walk together
with
OUR Creator,

this World
will not fall down
upon us.

Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me.
I will hold your people in my Heart.”
Daniel L. Schutte

Lonely
is a World
without Love.
And beyond lonely
is none.
Nothing!
No one –
a savage discontent
with existence,
a mirror of reality
with no reflection.

But,
My Dear Friends,
we can
Light up
the Day
with Laughter,
create Joy and Love
that lasts longer
than ever after.

“Your Love is always there.
No sea could ever divide
The Love we share.
It’s always there.
Clear as the morning air,
As sure as winds keep blowing,
Love will be always there.”
Marti Webb

Each fragment
of our Sacred Being
is on a voyage of Creation,
a journey
of its own.

The Truth,
the reality of our Being,
is in our hands,
living in our Hearts,
mirrored
in a reflection
of God’s Love.

We are both Creator and Created.

When we look into that marvelous mirror
called Life,
what appears there
speaks most intimately
of you as Creator.
After all,
we are the Children
of God.

Which leads
to a profound revelation:
if you desire,
if you have Faith,

YOU may take
complete control of your thoughts,
your feelings, your desires,
and Reality itself.

Truly I tell you,
if you have Faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’
and it will move.”

Matthew 17:20

God beckons you
to emerge from the dark cave
of denial and ignorance

and become the Master
of your Life.

       Emerge from the dark cave.

The true Nature
of Reality
lies deeply embedded
within
our Dreams and Hopes,
our Music and Poetry and Prayers,
our works of fiction
called Life,

yours and ours.

We
are quietly Sacred.
Our Prayers
enable us
to feel the very Fabric
of our Being,
to connect with a Consciousness
we have never felt,
never seen.

Prayer
is simply talking
with God.

Discover the Beautiful Nature
of your Reality.
It lies in the World
of the unseen,
deeply embedded
in a work of Divine Art
you know of
as the Human
Heart.

Goodnight.

 Our Prayers enable us.

7 Things Mentally Healthy People
Tell Themselves
read more

By

  1. “I am a lovable.” No child is born who is not Lovable. Look at any newborn. That button nose and those tiny fingers and toes are meant to engage adult’s protective and loving feelings. You were no different. The adults around you when you were small may have been too wounded, too ill or to overwhelmed to love you but that is on them. You were and are — just by the fact of your existence — a lovable person.
    .
  2. “I am capable.” From the time they take their first breath, Humans are wired to learn, to adapt, and to grow. You have been learning and growing every minute. You may not have been taught all you need to know to manage your feelings or to take care of yourself. You may have learned unusual behaviors or in order to survive. But you are never too old to learn new skills. Anything you’ve learned that is not helpful or healthy can be unlearned.
    .
  3. Most other people are Lovable and capable, too.” It’s crucial not to let negative or painful experiences with a few negative or toxic individuals color our opinion of everyone. The majority of people in the world do mean well and are doing the best they can. Once we’re adults, we can choose who we want to surround ourselves with. We can seek out the people who are living lives that are decent, warm and contributing good to the world.
    .
  4. “Success comes from doing.”  It’s been proven over and over again by researchers: Feeling good comes from doing good things. Positive self-esteem is the outcome, not the prerequisite, for being successful in relationships, school, work, sports, hobbies —  just about anything. We all have a choice whether we wait to feel better or we do the things that we know will help us become better.
    .
  5. “Challenges are opportunities.” Life isn’t always easy or fair. How we meet challenges and obstacles is a choice. Healthy people find ways to engage with a problem and look for ways to solve it. They refuse to let their fears keep them from trying something new, even if it is difficult. Stretching ourselves outside of our comfort zones is what helps us grow. Mentally healthy people also recognize that sometimes the opportunity hidden inside a challenge is the opportunity to say “no.” Not all problems are worth solving. Not all problems can be “solved” as they are defined.
    .
  6. “It is only Human to make mistakes”  : Mentally healthy people know that a mistake is not the reason to give up. It is an opportunity to learn and try again. Willingness to acknowledge and fix our errors is a mark of strength. Cultivating the courage to be imperfect is central to being willing to try again.
    .
  7. “I have what it takes to cope with change — and to make changes.” Change is inevitable in life. Mentally healthy people believe in their ability to cope and to adapt to changes. They aren’t unrealistic. They don’t deny the seriousness of a problem. They do acknowledge when a situation is very difficult. They don’t criticize themselves for not wanting to deal with whatever it is they have to deal with. But they have a deep seated belief that if they do tackle the problem, they will eventually find a solution or a way around it.

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.

With the help of God, I know I can be strong.”
