I Am Your Child / Secrets to Longevity / Sept. 6 Fall Semester Begins

“Behold,
Children are a heritage from the LORD, 
the fruit of the womb
a reward.”
– Psalm 127:3-5

    I am the beat of my own lonely Heart.

No.
Your child cannot live
without your Love,
anymore than Life
can be without
the ultimate act of Love,
Birth.

My Dear Friends,
YOU
are always smiling
in the Heart
of your Happy child.

Your child cannot live without your Love.

I am the moments
I search your Heart,
in Hope
of finding you.
I am
the beat of my own
lonely Heart,
waiting
just for you.
The music
of my Life
joins in perfect
Harmony
as Heavens sing
of my Life
with you.

          You, my reason to be.

My Home,
destiny of my dreams,
is in
your Heart.
For within
lie the Seasons
yet to come,
days and moments,
precious moments,
to Dawn
as your own.

All Creation,
through all of Time,
is the World yet to be,
if endless tears
roll by,
toward Suns yet to set,
into a Sea
of you
without me.

        My Home is in your Heart.

Yes,
I am
your Daughter,
I am
your Son.
And you,
my reason to be.

Until
the end of Time,
centuries countless to come,
the Spark
of my Life
will endless
have never begun.

For without Love,
the Dawn of all Time
is a World
I will never see.

The sparkle of your eyes, glorious beyond Belief.

But,
hold me

in your arms
and I feel the Breath
of Life,
God breathed into me.
The sparkle
of your eyes,
glorious
beyond Belief,
pass years endless
in bliss,
remembering.

Hold me in your arms and I feel the Breath of Life.

I call
to a World
in momentary disbelief,
transfigured
  of yesterday’s tomorrow,
of today
in Eternity.

The one
who birthed the Dawn
of all my Time,
gave birth to
me.
But breath of Life
can long pass away,
without the Love
that nurtures me.

I am the moments I search your Heart.

Endless
is the Spark of Life
with Love,
the Song
of all Eternity,
Processions
in Perfect Harmony,
flowing
to the Heart of God,
waiting patiently.

For
Life is Love,
the Desire of God,
Destiny.

               Life is Love.

I am
your Daughter.
I am
your Son.
I am
the Will to be,
a Child of God,
His Sacred Seed.

And Love,
LOVE

is all I want,
all I will ever
need.

Goodnight.

Endless is the Spark of Life with Love.

“People were bringing little children
to Jesus for him to place his hands on them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this, he was indignant.
He said to them, “Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Truly I tell you,
anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God
like a little child
will never enter it.”
And he took the children in his arms,
placed his hands on them
and Blessed them.”
– Mark 10:13-16

I am the Will to be, a Child of God.

People That Lived to 100 Spill Their Secrets of Longevity
from modernhealthmonk.com

Besse Cooper, 116

“Mind your own business and don’t eat junk food. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated, work hard and love what you do.”

Bel Kaufman, 101

Laughter keeps you healthy. You can survive by seeing the humor in everything. Thumb your nose at sadness; turn the tables on tragedy. You can’t laugh and be angry, you can’t laugh and feel sad, you can’t laugh and feel envious.

Anthony Mancinelli, 101

Do the right thing, don’t smoke, don’t drink, eat right and don’t overdo it. If you need a little extra help, take some vitamins. Going to work is what keeps me going.

Ruth Gruber, 101

Look inside your soul and find your tools. We all have tools and have to live with the help of them. I have two tools, my words and my images. I used my typewriter, computer and my cameras to fight injustice. Whenever I see a possibility of helping people who are in danger, I want to help them.

Dr. Laila Denmark, 114

Eat right and do what you love. Whatever you love to do is play; doing what you don’t like to do is work. I have never worked a day in my life!

Bonita Zigrang, 108

Have a good appetite, lots of friends, and keep busy.

Benjamin Goldfaden, 99

Stay active… even at 100. Eat in a balanced way… Don’t stay mad at anything – you have to get used to the losses, otherwise you can’t win. Lastly, stay close with your family, they keep you thinking.

Irving Kahn, 106

It is very important to have a widespread curiosity about life.

Helen Mulligan, 101

Take it easy, enjoy life, what will be will be. Sleep well.

Ebby Halliday, 101

Don’t smoke, don’t drink, and don’t retire!

Gilbert Herrick, 100

Take one day at a time and go along with the tide.

Lillian Modell, 100

Keep busy! Do things that you’ve never done before.

Gussie Levine, 100

Don’t fight the day, just let it be. Get up and be positive. Avoid any and all drama; I don’t get involved with silly minutiae or difficult personalities; people respect me for that.

Jennie Cascone, 100

Be good, don’t complain, just get up and do. Keep on working, keep on going, and have a good time.

Murray Shusterman, 100

Get involved. You’ll find pleasure and sometimes disappointment but there is a sense of achievement if you participate in a successful undertaking, whether it is organizational or professional. Work hard, it will pay off.

Loretta Hodge, 102

Whatever is hard, you make hard, but if you take it as it comes, it doesn’t come hard. Don’t worry, don’t want so much, and be satisfied with what you’ve got. Be willing to share with your friends and those less fortunate.

Miriam Henson, 105

You must keep active or you will just wither away. Always be involved in some activity.

Barbara Brody, 102

You have to make the best out of your life and have a good attitude.

Winifred Thomas, 101

When you live for God, talk to him, go to church, have nice people around you; that is the best medicine. God provides for you. Sometimes you don’t know when it is coming, but it is coming.

The Secrets Behind All of These Long-Living People Are Surprisingly The Same

There are definitely a few things repeated over and over.

I went back through the list and wrote down the top 5 things that appeared the most frequently. Do you know what they were?

The most commonly cited things:

  1. Keep a calm mind – Stay calm and relaxed and don’t let your feathers get ruffled. This  is the same advice the supposedly 256 year old Li Ching Yuen said, in addition to his three other secrets.
    .
  2. Don’t retire Stay curious about life, do work you love, and continue to do activities and participate in the community.
    .
  3. Eating right and staying active (traditional longevity)
    .
  4. Friends, social networks, and family – One of the longest running Harvard studies of all time follow men from college to the present day. George Vaillant commented that [in regard to happiness and life satisfaction] “There is 70 years of evidence that our relationships with other people matter, and matter more than anything else in this world.”
    .
  5. Have a good time – Just a general love for life, a constant curiosity and desire to learn, grow and live.

What About You?

I think that many of us intuitively know some of the things that contribute to a long life, like relaxing and enjoying life, keeping your mind busy, and obviously eating right and exercising.

One of the craziest things I’ve come across in the past few years is that some people have willed themselves to death. In extreme survival situations, people have been found in safe, secure places, with food and water, who simply gave up. Sometimes there was a journal, but other times these people had no verifiable medical reason for their death. They just didn’t want to fight.

The external is seriously overrated in our society –  people seem to neglect the power of the mind to make a person happy or miserable, successful or unsuccessful, lazy or driven.
