Worlds Are Created By Love / Foods That Increase Cancer Risk / Friday: Doss Cultural Center

“In the mind,
we doubt and suspect,
and we get a kind of pleasure,
a kind of joy from that.
But in the Heart,
we try to encompass the Full World,
and by Loving the World,
we get JOY.”

Sri Chinmoy

Now
quickly becomes
nevermore.

Time
is enfolded within
layers of illusion.
This moment,
this precious instant
in the swirling sea
of now and never,
then and ever,
can quickly become
nevermore.

The awareness of Self,
of being firmly rooted
in who we truly are,
can enable us
to see that everything around us,
is intensely
ALIVE.

And,
in your dynamic vision
of Life all around,
you discover
that YOU
are truly
alive.

Getting in touch
with your consciousness,
with the awareness inside,
can enable you
to experience true
Happiness.

My Dear Friends,
our perceptions become clouded.
They delude us.
But,
despite what our senses tell us,
we CAN
experience a profound sense
of inner peace
and JOY.

As many religious traditions
have always held,
the natural state of consciousness,
which pervades the entire Universe,
is total Bliss.
And getting into touch with
the clarity of pure consciousness
inside of us,
empowers us to experience
this JOY.
When we do this,
we experience
what is true happiness.

Where the center of your gravity lies.

Yes.
Taking the time
to slow down,
and reflect upon the true nature
of who you are,
and where the center
of your gravity lies,
can have a massively
therapeutic effect.

And
who am I?

My Friends,
the Universe is apparently filled
with particles and anti-particles
dancing into and out of
existence
billions of times
each second
.

Yes.

They disappear and reappear in reality.
But,
where do they go?
.
Quantum physicists now know
they “reappear.”
They appear, and then they disappear.
But,
different ones appear.

This fact,
that the particles
of which WE are made,
reappear and are always
different
when they reappear
,
conveys a simple and powerful
message:
we are all connected,
we are truly
one.

Consciousness Moves to Another Universe After Death.

This is much like
the air we breathe.
Each breath
is taken in and
released.
And a new and different breath of air,
with new and different particles,
is taken inside.
We share these particles
with every Living thing
on Earth.

“The third Universal Truth is
that ALL things
– seen and unseen –
are connected.
All things are different faces
of Consciousness.”
– 
Michael Brown

Quantum Theory Proves
That Consciousness Moves to Another Universe
After Death.

Consciousness exists outside
of the constraints of Time and Space.
It is able to be anywhere:
in the Human body and outside of it.
That fits well with the basic postulates
of quantum mechanics,

according to which a certain particle can be present
anywhere
and an event can happen
in several, sometimes countless, ways.
learning-mind.com

Oddly,
the more energetic our particles are,
the less time they exist.
They go back into the vast space and vacuum
from whence they came.

Outside of the constraints of Time.

Yes,
there is something very weird going on
in the, so-called, empty space
in our Universe.

To a physicist,
mass and energy are interchangeable.
This tells us
that YOU have an uncertainty in the energy,
of which you are made.
And the greater the uncertainty,
the shorter the time that you are uncertain
about whether particles even exists.

Particles constitute
the origin of all structure today.

So,
in a sense,
YOU,
yourself, are virtual particles
that have become real.

You see Folks,
we don’t really know
what we are
or
that we are
(if we really exist).

“You are becoming
The Song of your Heart.
How Beautiful it is.
As the Flower blossoms forth,
Feel the Earth in your toes.
Oh my child,
you’ll never know
What Tomorrow brings.
So sing, sing, sing.
Rise before the Morning Light.
Let your Soul take its flight.
God is with you
listening.
So sing, sing sing.”
Snatam Kaur and Peter Kater

Let’s wax Philosophical
for a moment.

As we journey through this Life,
we experience moments when it seems
we are not able to see any purpose
in the circumstance
in which we find ourselves.

But,
our Perpetual Creation
tells us that at every moment
the World is the way it is
because God Loves us,
and He perpetually Creates us
in His infinitely dynamic
and Loving Image.

This moment
was created
and brought into being
out of absolute nothingness
by a Loving
Creator.

            Faith leads us into the Light

Realizing
that we are far less than half-present,
knowing
that we have not had
a sense of being truly
where we are,
and who we are,
has left precious Life
in the dark.

But Faith,
leads us
into the Light,
the Light of
Love.

As we Pray,
and Meditate,
on the Beauty and Immensity
of our Universe,
we can come to
more fully realize,
that Worlds
are Created by Love.
And,
OUR World
can be recreated
by Love,
and by Love
alone.

“There can be Miracles
When you Believe.
Though Hope is frail
It’s hard to kill.
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe,
Somehow you will,
You will when you
Believe.”
Stephen Schwartz

          To everything there is a Season.

Have you
wept for LOVE?
Has a Loved one
wept
for you?

Perhaps,
it is now time
for weeping,
crying
for all the JOY
in Life.

“To everything
there is a Season.
A time to weep,
and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;
Ecclesiastes 3:4

 My Dear Friends,
we experience,
and are aware of,
only a very narrow
slice of Reality.
.
But Time alone
with God,
as you Pray
with all your Heart
to our Father
in Heaven above,
will broaden the
dimensions
in which you truly
dwell.

Goodnight.

Kahlil Gibran “When you are sorrowful
look again
in your Heart,

and you shall see that in Truth
you are weeping for that
which has been your
delight.”

Kahlil Gibran

………………….By Love alone.

“Our mind
is like a cloudy sky:

in essence clear and pure,
but overcast by clouds of delusions.
Just as the thickest clouds can disperse,
so, too, even the heaviest delusions
can be removed from our Mind.”
Kelsang Gyatso
.

Meditate on the Beauty of our Universe.

.
“Heaven and God
are not high above us, far away;
they are deep within us.
Heaven is not a distant country
where there are trees and houses and other objects;
it is a plane of consciousness within us.
Seekers of the Eternal Truth
will realize their Eternal Heaven
within
their aspiring Hearts.

Sri Chinmoy
.
Dedicated
to my Dear Friend
Laura.
I have been Praying
for you.
And now we
know:
God
answers Prayer.
God Loves You.
And so do
we.

This year, more than 1 million Americans and more than 10 million people worldwide are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, a disease commonly believed to be preventable. Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle. The lifestyle factors include cigarette smoking, diet (fried foods, red meat), alcohol, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, infections, stress, obesity, and physical inactivity. The evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental pollutants etc.

Cancer is a staggering epidemic.
The number of people affected by this disease
is heartbreaking.
As we learn more about the causes,
we begin to learn about
preventive measures.

In knowing of the relationship
between diet and cancer,
this leads us to a list of what
NOT to eat.
And,
what we should eat.
.
Top 10 Foods That Increase Cancer Risk

Nearly 1.5 million new cases of cancer were expected to be diagnosed last year–while 559,650 people were expected to die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. That’s more than 1,500 people a day–such a startling statistic. In the book Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic (New Society Publishers, 2007) the authors write that the Number 4 solution is to “Eat a Healthy Diet.

Listed below are the 10 Foods and Drinks to Limit or Eliminate:

1. All charred food, which create heterocyclic aromatic amines, known carcinogens. Even dark toast is suspect.

2. Well-done red meat. Medium or rare is better, little or no red meat is best.

Be healthy.  –  Be LOVING.

3. Sugar, both white and brown – which is simply white sugar with molasses added. (See Care2′s Directory of Natural Sweeteners for great, healthy alternatives.)

4. Heavily salted, smoked and pickled foods, which lead to higher rates of stomach cancer.

5. Sodas/soft drinks, which pose health risks, both for what they contain–sugar and various additives
– and for what they replace in the diet
– beverages and foods that provide vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

6. French fries, chips and snack foods that contain trans fats.

7. Food and drink additives such as aspartame.

8. Excess alcohol.

9. Baked goods, for the acrylamide.

10. Farmed fish, which contains higher levels of toxins such as PCBs.

Sunshine Things Far More Than Real / What an Adventuresome Trip / Thank You

“A million Tomorrows
shall all pass away

Ere I forget all the Joy
that is mine,
Today.”

– Randy Sparks

dawn 1b

          We live in two Worlds.

The Song your Life
is singing,
can become
like a Beautiful Prayer.
Such is the music
that gives meaning
to Life,
and everything else
there.

“There will be another
song for me,

For I will sing it.
There will be another
dream for me,

Someone will bring it.”
Jimmy Webb

My Dear Friends,
no one can take
what lives within,
for your dreams
are Sunshine Things.
They do not melt
in the dark.
Tomorrow appears
when we close our eyes
and see with Hope
in our Heart,
and not with what lies
brilliantly lit by the Sun
in disguise.

“What life does to me
is not the same thing
as who I am.”
– Michael Brown

dawn 3b

The dawn of things far more than real.

We live
in two Worlds:
one is the Dawn,
the other mirrors the Dawn
of things far more than real,
that we so very deeply
Love
we breathe
Life into them,
that we cherish
above all things
and carry forever
in our Hearts,
that we create
and no one can take apart,
that we Believe in
and celebrate
in song,
as we so joyfully
sing along
all night long
in dreams waking
to the wonder
of who we are.

dawn 4b

     Dreams are sunshine things.

The reflections of our thoughts
and our dreams
look through us
and into the future,
to see what eyes
cannot see
and open the gate
to a tomorrow
no longer held in the arms
of the past.

My Friends,
the mirror
is doing the
looking.

The world of our
imagination
is where we truly Live,
where we
belong.
Far more than figment,
it is the light bearer
of tomorrow,
the touchstone of reality,
without which
we shall not thrive,
and never survive.

“Not only is the universe
stranger than we imagine,

it is stranger
than we can imagine.”

Sir Arthur Eddington

sun 2

No one can take what lives within.

Imagination is far more real than reality.
It is more important
than knowledge,
which is very limited
to what we now know and
think we understand.

Imagination embraces Worlds
unknown,
and perhaps unknowable,
without nuturing an environment
where dreams really do
come true.

spray

Reality is a projection of what we IMAGINE.

And far more importantly,
through a child’s eyes,
JOY and wonder
are what imagination brings.
For without JOY,
why dream and wonder
at all?

“Reality is merely an illusion,
albeit a very persistent one.”
– Albert Einstein

Albert reportedly
may have more properly said,
“To make an apple pie
first you must invent
a Universe.”

mix

Without JOY, why dream and wonder at all?

We live in a beautiful Universe.
But it is a Universe
of our own making,
created within the infinite depths
of the Human mind
and the Human Heart.
It is a projection
of what we believe,
what we want,
what we need,
what we IMAGINE.

And WHAT fires
the Human mind
to create such unfathomable Beauty
as may be found
all around
and in our tomorrow?

sun 3

The mirror is doing the looking.

“Imagination is born
when LOVE‘S alive,
a Spirit creating a place
for you and I.
Together let’s ride away
to find the Universe,
and let our dreams
live our lives.”
– Earth, Wind and Fire

universe

We live in an Unfathomable Universe of OUR OWN MAKING.

Sleep well my Friends,
and Pray
for what truly matters:
all the Love in your Heart
to give to another,
the words
in your Song
to sing
until Dawn,
the time to spend
Loving others,
the Joy you refine
and define,
as we live
and come alive again
to share the happiness
you give,
and give,
and give.

dawn 5b

One is the Dawn, the other mirrors the Dawn of things far more than real.

The real Dawn
is in your dreams,
in your Spirit Divine
that lives within.
It lights the path
for those who follow
and have never seen.
The children of tomorrow
live between
the Loving Thoughts
of God
and your very beautiful
dreams.

“Neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present,

nor things to come, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us
from the Love of God.”
– Romans viii.38, 39.

God still breathes
His Life
into every fiber
of your Being.

Yes,
you can live your Life
again,
and when you
awake,
become what you
dream.

Goodnight.

sun b

God Be with You Till We Meet Again in the Sunshine of Your Dreams.

“Take me to the breaking
of a beautiful dawn.

Take me to the place
where we come from.

Take me to the end
so I can see the start.”

The Wailin’ Jennys

dawn 2b

The Dawn is in your dreams.

“I’ll catch the sun
And never give it back again.
I’ll catch the sun
And keep it for my own.
Perhaps, in time

I’ll even share my sun
With that new anyone
To whom I gave my hand.”
– Rod McKuen

What an Adventure

On our adventuresome trip to Little Rock last week
we learned about Central High School’s place
in the civil rights movement,
explored the Clinton Presidential Center,
toured the Old Mill (a real work of art and Dr. A’s favorite)
and imagined a world free of hunger
and poverty at the Heifer Village.

Sometimes you just need to get up and stretch.

We also enjoyed
the historical bus tour of
Little Rock,
enjoyed the interactive and informative
displays at the Museum of Discovery,
shopped at the Farmer’s Market,
explored the Maritime Museum, holding a collection from the Arkansas River Historical Society featuring the history of the Arkansas River,
and experienced the sights, sounds, and smells
of submarine service when we stepped
aboard the historic submarine
USS Razorback.
This fabulous Museum hosts exhibits dedicated to America’s rich naval history.

What a marvelous tour of the World War II Submarine.

DSC05501Favorite among many students
were the nine hour rides on the
Amtrak Train.
What a relaxing
and memorable time!

The observation car was truly
delightful. Just ask Dr. A.
He may still be there.

My very sincere gratitude goes to Gina Moreland for planning yet another wonderful and adventuresome trip. You are awesome!

          Observation car

And thank you to all the beautiful parents who are always so helpful and generous with their time and their precious Love to all our students and staff. You are deeply appreciated and Loved.

And kids, you are unbelievable and terrific!
Thank you for all truly beautiful memories. Watching you grow in mind and Love and Spirit is more beautiful and precious than any unforgettable Sunset or any Flower sent by God from Heaven Above. Keep laughing. Keep smiling. This is your moment. This is your story. We know you by the Songs that your precious Hearts Sing.

And my most sincere gratitude to LeVonna Anderson for putting up with me for thirty four years. What courage! What fortitude! What Love a Heart can bring. What a beautiful Song a Heart can Sing.

What a truly marvelous Lady!

What a privilege and an Honor to be with you.

Thank you.

Not Yet One / This Week: Adventure in Arkansas

sun 4

Perhaps your Life has just begun, and you are not yet one.

Forged
in the Furnace
of God’s Abundant Love,
brought to Life
with His Loving Breath,
blended
with water
and the metal of clay,
we were created
for this resplendent day.

sun 5

The Furnace of God’s Abundant Love

And God said,
“I AM THAT I AM”
in five words
that mirror
what we call Life.
– Exodus 3:13-14

My Dear Friends,
the waters
of which we are
so Beautifully made,
can merge with rivers
of tears
over the years.
And flowing together
in misunderstood harmony
become one.
Coursing through Life,
Destiny’s Child
may awash upon the shore,
and be dashed upon rocks
of awareness,
that we may have never,
ever
truly Loved before.

sun 6

You do not see the world as it is.

If tears that are within
flow seemingly without end,
know that birth
is not without pain,
that we never recognize joy,
until we look deeply into
the eyes of sorrow.
For they go hand in hand,
one today,
the other surely tomorrow.

“You do not see
the world as it is.
You see it
as you are.”

– Anais Nin

If in this
you were mindfully unaware,
perhaps your Life
has just begun,
and today
is your birthday,
and you are not yet
one.

Goodnight.

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

LILY 2

“Scientists have discovered
the mirror of their own minds
inside the atom,
where the existence and the behavior of the particles
depend on
the intent of the scientist.”
