In The Fertile Fields / Reduce Blood Pressure Naturally / Friday: Engineering Week at the Museum of Science & Hist.

In the fertile fields
of our thoughts,
our feelings
and our dreams,

Flowers

have been steadily
growing,
watered by tears
still flowing,
over the graves
of those who left
unknowing,
how very much
we Loved
them.

     Flowers have been steadily growing.

When I
consider all the Love
I have known,
I am brought to
tearful appreciation.

In the chilly hours
of uncertainty,
old memories
can burn,
and leave one
to yearn.

It is then
we need to remember,
the Door never
closes,
our fear of Death never
discloses,
that we are older
than our fears,
and
younger than our
years,
that Love
is always just a heartbeat away –
the Heart
that beats within
another,
for you.

“Just like a Flower
that can shatter a stone,
the same can apply to Love
that can shatter
a hardened and fearful
Heart.”

Debra Esterline

We appear to be
separated
by a common
destiny,
but the material
plane of illusion
only reflects
you and me.

Many decisions
seem to be based
more and more
on emotion,
rather than thought
and reason,
and Prayer
and
FAITH.

Our emotions are,
often,
inadequate for dealing with
the stress
induced by superficial
and illusory
expectations
and constraints.

Yes,
we do unreasonable
and dangerous things.
Unbelievably,
we teach to a
test,
and not
to the Heart.

             The material plane of illusion.

My Dear Friends,
it does not matter
what a child has
learned,
if that precious Child
abandons all Hope.

Nothing learned
will matter,
then.

As the world evolves
to become more complex
and irrational,
we fail to realize
how very fragile we are
and dependent
upon complex interactions.

We become
more and more ignorant
about what is truly happening.
We know next to nothing
about dependency,
or each other.

Rarely,
have we appreciated
our ignorance.

As our lack of awareness,
remains unchallenged,
we stagnate
in the infancy of understanding,
and do not know,
that we do not know,
the answers.

Nobody really knows.

But,
the answers

are there.

Awareness of ignorance is the beginning of Wisdom.                    – Socrates

From every moment,
and from this moment on,
we have been
truly Blessed.

Within
the folds and flow
of fervent Prayer,
lies
the Sweet Bright Body
of Truth.

Brightly shinning,
the Vibrancy of the
Word of God
leaves the colors
of lessor words,
to fade
without a sound.

The Sweet Bright Body of Truth.

We cannot
depend
upon our judgement
alone.
We
are only
Human.

God
is with you,
and within.

Place your
Trust
where it
belongs.

“Likewise
the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:

for we know not
what we should pray for

as we ought:
but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us

with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
Romans 8:26

May God Bless you
and Abide with you
on your inner Journey,
through which we move
from sound to silence,
from plurality to unity,
and from the imperfections
of ourselves and our World around us,
to the Beautiful Presence
of the Divine within.

Goodnight.

12 ways to reduce your blood pressure naturally
By
Chris Woollams
(Former Oxford University Biochemist
and founder of CANCERactive)

January 15, 2018

Do not smoke – there’s clear research showing this puts up blood pressure
Don’t be overweight – research shows that a controlled weight loss program reduces blood pressure. Your waistline size is also linked directly to blood pressure!

Take aerobic exercise – run, walk, jog, swim. Regular daily exercise for 45 minutes where you get out of breath is what’s required.

Avoid Stress – Stress has a devastating effect on blood pressure. Pinpoint your stress triggers, and try to cut those people and things out of your life. Make time to relax and calm down. Plan your week better, include times when you work, times when you relax, times when you are enjoying other interests.

Eat a Rainbow Diet – people who stick most closely to the Rainbow Diet avoid 11 chronic illnesses that beset the Western World – one being high blood pressure. Most notable factors are:

Avoid salt – higher sodium levels in the body are linked to higher blood pressure. You should cut foods such as Chinese meals, sausages, bacon, dried meats, salted nuts and crisps. You should focus on potassium-rich foods (avocado, banana, spinach, sweet potato, apricots, pomegranate) and magnesium-rich foods (almonds, figs, spinach, dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds). Eat fresh, not processed or packaged foods.

Eat more colorful vegetablesGlutathione in vegetables and fruits reduces blood pressure; Beetroot, for example, has been shown to reduce blood pressure levels by 5 points, as it contains nitrate which converts to nitric oxide, which dilates arteries. Watermelon contains citrulline and does the same; arginine is found in pumpkin seeds and pulses and reduces blood pressure. Other nitrate containing foods include green leafy vegetables, celery, fennel and broccoli.

Eat more soluble fibre foodsoats, barley, nuts, seeds and legumes (pulses) are the favorite foods of good gut bacteria and their consumption is linked to lowered blood sugar, lowered estrogen levels and lowered blood pressure.

Eat more Mediterranean foodsExtra Virgin Olive Oil, oily fish, pomegranate, flaxseed, garlic, onions – all these have proven benefits in reducing blood pressure.

Enjoy Sunshine – We all know you increase blood levels of vitamin D if you lie in the sunshine. But did you know our levels of serotonin increase and that generates happy hormones, cutting stress, and nitric oxide reducing blood pressure.

Caffeine – think coffee increases your blood pressure? Actually, the jury is out. In some people it does; in regular drinkers it doesn’t seem to.

God’s Love is Painted in the Sky / Five Positive Effects of Kindness / Friday Trip: F. W. ZOO

            God’s Love is painted in the Sky.

Serenity
is what you contemplate,
when Pray you speak
and peer through Heaven’s Gate,
to find the Soul
filled with Love,
and your Spirit
set free
of all hate.

“You will seek me and find me
when you seek me
with all your Heart.”
    

– Jeremiah 29:13

When Home
we should have been
yesterday,
and tomorrow
is too late,
Today
arrives just in time,
to be all
mine,
and celebrate.

Life
is but a brief moment
in space,
only one
singular, very tiny speck
in Time,
but a mere trace.
But YOU,
by the Grace
of One Infinitely
in Love,
will find Time
never reaching an
end.

     His Love sets in the evening of your Heart.

God’s Love
is painted in the Sky,
and in the teardrops of joy
in your eyes,
in the Greatest Story
ever told,
and in the arms
of those
you wanted to hold,
who will never
let you go.

God keeps
the Promise of Morning,
as the Glow of His Love
sets in the evening of your
Heart.

There is nothing
more Beautiful
than when
His Work is done,
and celebration
is in the setting Sun.
To behold such Beauty
and bask in the Glory
when day is done,
is exactly
where you belong.

He signs
each Work of Art
that is our day.
His Signature in the Sky
is Beauty only equaled
by you or I.

Remember this day,
the Gift God gave to you,
and Pray.
And always know,
there is no longing
for the past,
when you live
in someone’s Heart
today.

Who we are
and all we know,
we can choose to give away,
so that we may
forever live
in the Heart of another,
and begin our journey

through Eternity
to find a dream

come true.

Let you Heart
govern your head,
and bid farewell
to all the things
you do not
Love.

“Morning glory and midnight sun.
Time we’ve learned to sail above.
Time won’t change
the meaning of one Love

Ageless and ever,
evergreen.”

– Barbra Streisand, Paul H. Williams

Many a graveyard
is filled
with thoughts
steeped in deep
regret.
But nary a one
possesses
Love
passed on.

LOVE
never
dies.

Eternity
defined,
Immortality is born
  of the vision and the fire
and the memory of you
inside the Heart
of someone
you deeply Love.

“Would you believe me,
if I told you
my yesterday
is your tomorrow.”
Maurice Gibb, Robin Gibb, Barry Gibb

I make my own journey
through Eternity.

I keep the memory inside
forever.

To fulfill your destiny,
find the child within
and never, ever
say goodbye.

Goodnight.

Five Positive Effects of Kindness
by David Hamilton, Ph.D.
read more

1. Kindness makes us happier. Dr. Hamilton found that when we do something kind for someone else, we not only feel good, we tap into something deep and profound inside of us that says, “This is who I am.” Biochemically, levels of the brain’s natural versions of morphine, which we know as endogenous opioids, are increased. They cause elevated levels of dopamine in the brain and so we get a natural high, often referred to as “Helper’s High.”

2. Kindness gives us healthier Hearts. Acts of kindness are often accompanied by emotional warmth, which produces the hormone oxytocin in the brain and throughout the body. It plays a significant role in cardiovascular health, causing the release of nitric oxide, which dilates (expands) the blood vessels. This reduces blood pressure.

3. Kindness slows aging. Two culprits that speed the aging process are free radicals and Inflammation – both of which can result from making unhealthy lifestyle choices. Remarkable research shows that oxytocin reduces levels of free radicals and inflammation and slows aging at the root level. Also free radicals and inflammation play a major role in heart disease, so this is another reason kindness is good for the Heart.

There have also been references in scientific journals regarding the strong link between compassion and the activity of the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve, as well as regulating heart rate, also controls inflammation levels in the body.

4. Kindness improves relationships. Kindness reduces the emotional distance between people causing us to feel more “bonded.” It’s something that is so strong in us that it affects us at the genetic level. We are wired for kindness. The stronger the emotional bonds within groups, the greater the chances of survival, and so ‘kindness genes’ were etched into the human genome. When we are kind to each other, we feel a connection and new relationships are forged, or existing ones are strengthened.

5. Kindness is contagious. When we’re kind, we inspire others to be kind. Studies show that it actually creates a ripple effect that spreads outward to our friends and beyond – to “3 degrees of separation.” Just as a pebble creates waves when it is dropped into a pond, so acts of kindness ripple outward touching others’ lives and inspiring kindness everywhere the wave goes.

An Amazing Story of Kindness
When A.J. Star met former University of Alabama quarterback A J McCarron, his life changed forever – from despair to belonging and purpose. Through one act of kindness by McCarron, a disabled young man’s life was forever changed.  We are indeed “our brother’s keeper.”  It may take us out of our way a bit or cost us a little time and effort,
but this is what Life is all about – Loving others.

A thought is an actual physical energy.
Our thoughts create our body moment by moment.
Belief is the body’s strongest medicine.
The field is the invisible energy force around us.
