Yes, to Life and Yes to Living / Ray Kurzweil Hacks His Body / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

                                   They say YES.

To understand the Song
of a tiny feathered Heart,
and reflect upon
the music of his
magical moment,
is to understand
Life.
As beautiful Birds sing
and flutter around
you,
they say
YES.

Yes,
to Life.
And Yes
to Living.

If
we pause long enough,
and truly listen
to the sensations of their
Hearts,
we no longer decipher
this World
by thought,
but by feeling
and finally knowing,
knowing we belong
in the Beautiful Web
of Life.

                                           We belong.

All
Living Things
are elegantly interdependent
and connected to
everything.

There is
so much Beauty
in this World,
your Heart
cannot comprehend
the profound awe and wonder
of it.

There are deeper forces
at play.
.
Go outside.
Go into God’s World.
Close your eyes.
.

Listen.
Just listen,
and your Heart will see
a larger perception of
Reality
abides all around
the Dream
that is you
and me.

There is Magic
in the moment
you discover
your Spiritual Nature
is in the Wisdom
of Being.

It is simple.
Remove yourself
from the artificial constraints
and the linear constructions
created by the feeble mind
of our kind.

A far greater Love
than we can even imagine,
has Lovingly crafted and created
the truly meaningful moment
that is
YOU.

And the journey
of discovery
My Friend,
is effortless,
like Magic.

Simply go
into the Natural World
created by God.
Sit quietly
under the shade
of His beautiful Tree.
It is simply a matter
of listening,
hearing, feeling
and sensing
what is all around
YOU.

The dark shadows
of our thoughts
can be confusing,
chaotic,
irrelevant.

Stop searching
your mind
for somewhere to go,
something to discover,
something to figure out.
The clarity
we seek,
we need not
look for.
It will find
YOU.

                    It will find YOU.

My Dear Friends,
the awareness
of our kinship
with all of Nature
is long overdue.
It is a relationship
that reaches beyond
Mankind
and extends everywhere.

It is not bounded
by the dimensions
of our species.
It connects
with kindred currents
and ancestral rivers,
visible
and invisible.
.
Shift
from experiencing Life,
to truly Living
in the flow.
Allow the Love
of God
to flow through you,
and all around
you.

When
our precious Hearts
feel the Loving flow
of this beautiful Universe,
we are open
and aware
centered
in the here and now,
and forever more.

We no longer
expect
anything.
What we feel
is more real,
than real.

With no expectations,
our fragile Human Hearts
gently flow
to a deeper state of
Being.

             Your Heart cannot comprehend.

“The harmony
of Natural Law,
reveals an intelligence
of such superiority
that,
compared with it,
all the systematic thinking
and acting of Human Beings
is an utterly insignificant
reflection.”
Albert Einstein

The Universe God created
always
responds to our deep need
to leave our thoughts
and allow the Love
in our Hearts
to flow out
to all
Creation.

So often
we get into
our own way.
We never open
the door
to the most magnificent Gift
that is before
us.

We fail
to explore
the Wisdom
hiding all around
us.
Everything that Lives
has something of value
to share with
you.

As a young Child,
we learned to label
the World.
In trusting others
and not ourselves,
we learned
to color our feelings
about everything
around us.

                      Everything we see is a mirror.

We came to forget
what we instinctively
always knew,
that every Creature in this World
was a beautiful Living Being,
with its own
feelings,
and Hope
for the future.

We failed
to find Wonder,
Knowledge and Insight
and pure Delight,
in the Magic of the moment
we were with them.

All
Living Things
are Beautiful Instruments
through which
the Mind of the Universe
feels,
and thinks
and speaks
and acts.

We
are ALL
instruments
in a vast Cosmic Orchestra,
essential
to the harmonious and complementary
playing of the
Whole.

So very often,
the Creatures God Created
that we fear the most,
or hate,
are the ones that offer
the greatest lessons
for our own personal
growth.

And
this includes
other people.

But,
in remembering our connection
to ALL things Living,
we begin to realize
that everything we see
is a mirror
to our own deeper
Being.

Our Mother,
this Earth,
has dressed Herself up
for a command performance
with the Stars,
arrayed upon the black
of night,
and entwined in Her Hair.
She will forgive you
for not taking
the Time
to know
Love is there,
and everywhere.

“While
with an Eye
made quiet
by the Power of Harmony,
and the deeper Power
of JOY,
we see into
the Life of Things.”
William Wordsworth

We
are One.

Goodnight.

                     Entwined in Her Hair.

Google Futurist Ray Kurzweil Hacks His Body With These

Ray Kurzweil has many followers. Some call him a prophet.

Over a decade ago, Ray Kurzweil predicted that, within decades, we will have medical nanorobots, now called nanodocs, swimming through our veins keeping us healthy. In a 2007 essay in the Guardian, Kurzweil made the following prediction:

“Within a couple of decades, we will have ‘nanobots’ in our blood stream, basically small robots the size of blood cells, that will keep us healthy at the cellular and molecular level.” Kurzweil later added, “These devices will be a billion times more powerful than they are today in 25 years, and will continue the accelerating path to radical life extension.”

Ray Kurzweil made that prediction back in 2007, and his prophecy is becoming a reality, at least in the treatment of solid-tumor cancer. According to a recent report on bacteriobots, a physician in Montreal may be the first to treat cancer patients with tumor-killing nanorobots.
Futurist, Heal Thyself.

Kurzweil was diagnosed with high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes when only 35. The diagnosis of type 2 diabetes was a wake-up call for Ray, so he read up on the latest nutritional research, went on a diet and cut his fat intake. All that hard work paid off for Ray Kurzweil, who says he reversed both his diabetes and high cholesterol,
losing 40 pounds in the process.

Immortality Isn’t Easy for Ray Kurzweil

As reported by the Financial Times (FT.com), the futurist used to eat 250 pills a day. Now, he’s down to 100. In an interview a few years back, Kurzweil told the Financial Times’s Caroline Daniel that he spends “a few thousand dollars per year” on vitamins and supplements. According to press reports, Kurzweil also spends one day a week in a doctor’s office, receiving intravenous longevity treatments in a bid to live forever.

In addition to taking vitamins and supplements, Ray also eats a healthy diet, rich in plant compounds called phytonutrients. According to Caroline Daniel, his breakfast includes berries, dark chocolate infused with espresso, smoked salmon and mackerel, vanilla soy milk, porridge and green tea.

If the supplement plan doesn’t work, Ray Kurzweil has a backup plan. The outspoken futurist has signed up to for cryonics. Kurzweil joins other notables such as SENS Foundation’s Aubrey de Grey on the member list of the cryonics firm Alcor. Ray Kurzweil has arranged for the cryopreservation of his body shortly after death, with the hopes of being revived when medical science has found a cure for whatever felled him.
.

                            Ray Kurzweil’s Supplement List

Most of the items on this list come from Kurzweil’s book, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever, published back in 2005 when Ray was taking 250 supplements a day. The list has been updated to include the supplements vinpocetine, vitamin D, and alkaline water, recently added to Kurzweil’s list, based on current press reports.

How Not To Live Forever

As reported in a previous article, large doses of some vitamins can cause harm. A few of the supplements on Ray Kurzweil’s list could ruin his health or shorten his life, notably the vitamins B-3 and B-6. Recent research on vitamin B-6 shows that taking more than 100 milligrams of the vitamin over an extended period can cause a form of nerve damage called neuropathy. Research shows that taking excessive vitamin B-3 lowers cholesterol, but can also harm the liver.

Department of Redundancy Department

There’s redundancy in Ray Kurzweil’s longevity regimen.

Ray takes EPA/DHA fish oil supplements. Studies show that when compared to omega-3 supplements, whole fish is a healthier source of these oils. Ray Kurzweil should stick to his salmon.

Kurzweil has a healthy diet, rich in fruit and vegetables. He doesn’t need that many supplements. Ray Kurzweil is going overboard.

I’m puzzled by Ray’s testosterone-boosting regimen. Kurzweil takes many supplements that increase testosterone. At the same time, Ray takes the drug itself.

The best thing to boost testosterone is testosterone itself.
.

Bottom Line on Ray Kurzweil’s Regimen

On the plus side, Kurzweil has an otherwise healthy lifestyle. He takes prescription drugs for legitimate reasons, such as aspirin for the heart, metformin for diabetes and statins for high cholesterol. Some of the medicines have dual purposes. Metformin has been shown to prevent cancer, and it’s a general anti-aging drug to boot. Cholesterol-lowering statins are also proposed for anti-aging purposes.

On the other hand, while justification can be found for some of the items on his list, it seems as if the futurist is taking too many overall. A recent report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests that vitamin supplements aren’t all they are cracked up to be. Instead, the JAMA article recommends that people obtain most of their vitamins and minerals through a healthy diet. The report suggests that those people with specific conditions or at certain life phases might consider vitamin and mineral supplements. Furthermore, two of the B vitamins that Ray takes are shown to be harmful to the health when taken to excess.

The 25 Year Wait for Immortality / Things You Never Suspected Could Cause Cancer / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

On a portrait of this Beautiful day,
the icy glass windows
of our eyes
are many, many miles away
from our dreams
in the skies.

When
we are far from
Hope,
and live on the deserted shores
of what we think
is reality,
in the depths of our sorrow
we need but look
into the precious Word of God –
to see Tomorrow.

Hope
resides within our God given
collective ability
to create the Future.

Today,
Worldwide,
the average life expectancy was 71.5 years
(68 years and 4 months for males –
72 years and 8 months for females)
over the period 2010–2015
according to United Nations
World Population Prospects 2015 Revision,
and about 78 years in the United States.

This was not always true.
It is deeply saddening to realize,
but during most of recorded History,
any Human Being who reached the mid-thirties
erroneously thought he had beaten the system.
Over the past century
we gained a World wide average of 30 years,
about 25 of which are attributed to
improvements in public health.

     Countries by Average Life Expectancy From the          World Health Organization (2015)

Precious words of Hope
and inspiration
are conveyed to us
in the Word of God.

In the Old Testament
we see the Life span of Human Beings
reaching great ages.
Many lived over 900 years.
The Bible tells us that:
Adam lived 930 years. (Genesis 5:5)
Seth lived 912 years.(Genesis 5:8)
Methuselah lived 969 years.(Genesis 5:27)
And Noah lived 950 years,
to mention a few.

“And all the days of Methuselah 
were nine hundred sixty and nine years:
and he died.”
Genesis 5:27

Following the Great Flood,
lifespans rarely exceeded
100 years.
This event is pivotal
in changing Life expectancy
on this planet.

Before the flood, the Bible says
that there was a vapor canopy
around the entire World.
The Lifespan was much longer.

There are over 270 flood stories
from every culture around the World.
The vapor/ice canopy that surround the earth was a protection,
increased atmospheric pressure,
which is found in amber samples
found to have been an oxygen concentration of 51%,
where today we have 21%.
This explains why people and everything lived longer.

It was after the flood that God said
he would shorten man’s days
upon the Earth.

This great flood may have also
contaminated the Earth
in a horrible way,
which contributed to the loss
of so very much
precious Time
on this Earth.

When it comes to Living, the Sky is NOT the limit.

My Dear Friends,
God also revealed
the Truth
of our potential to Live
much, much longer,
perhaps
Forever.

According to Scripture
God designed His Children, Human Beings,
to live Eternally
in deep relationship with Him.
Yes,
when it came to Mankind,
God’s involvement was
direct and intimate.

“I think it’s reasonable
to suppose that one could oscillate
between being biologically 20 and biologically 25
indefinitely.”

 Startling Things You Never Suspected
Could Cause Cancer (but they do)
by Danica Collins

Most laundry detergents (The 1,4-dioxane found in laundry detergent is particularly harmful in the fact that the chemical binds easily to water and remains there. Even after water containing the chemical has been purified and filtered, low levels have been detected, indicating that it is not easily removed from water.

DSC03445

I’m done with the nap and the Sun!

Numerous water supplies across the country have been found to be tainted with 1,4-dioxane. Try PENTA water (my favorite). Expensive? Well, a little pricey. But CHEAP compared to a stay in the hospital. And not painful at all. In fact, the company advertises that it “gives you a feeling of well being”. I found this to be true. Place it in the refrigerator and get it cold. Then drink a full bottle when you get up in the morning. Yes, you will have a feeling of well being. This good clean water, with a great taste, makes me float around the house for a long time. It’s not just an advertising line, it is true. Our fragile human bodies react beautifully to the good things, and the things that are good for you in Life.

20 different laundry detergents from both conventional and “natural” brands were evaluated in one study. Evoxa, an independent, third-party laboratory that is highly respected for its rigorous methods and high standards, conducted all product testing. The results are as follows:

Conventional brands:
1. Tide (P&G) – 55 parts per million (ppm) Gulp!
2. Ivory Snow Gentle (P&G) – 31 ppm
3. Tide Free (P&G) – 29 ppm
4. Purex (Dial Corp.) – 25 ppm
5. Gain 2X Ultra (P&G) – 21 ppm
6. Cheer BrightClean Detergent (P&G) – 20 ppm
7. Era 2X Ultra (P&G) – 14 ppm
8. Arm & Hammer (Church & Dwight Co.) – 5.0 ppm
9. Wisk 2X Ultra (Sun Products Corp.) – 3.9 ppm
10. Woolite Complete Detergent (Reckitt Benckiser) – 1.3 ppm
11. All laundry detergent (Unilever) – 0.6 ppm
12. Dreft powdered detergent (P&G) – non-detectable (ND)
13. Sun Burst (Sun Products Corp.) – ND

“Natural” brands:
1. Planet Ultra Liquid detergent – 6.1 ppm
2. Mrs. Meyers laundry detergent – 1.5 ppm
3. Clorox Green Works Natural detergent – ND
4. Ecos laundry detergent (Earth Friendly Products) – ND This is the product my family uses.
5. Life Tree Laundry Liquid – ND
6. Method Squeaky Green laundry detergent – ND
7. Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent – ND

Now, what do I do? This reminds me of the time when, in 1984, I finally realized that smoking tobacco was going to kill me and death would come in a very painful and miserable way. Yes, I left the good Doctor’s office, and thought about what he said: “Bill, remember, ALL SMOKERS QUIT!”. I toddled home and THREW AWAY all tobacco products, including my beloved briar wood pipe.

Yes, throw all the dangerous products away. TODAY. The very best investment you can possibly make is in the health and safety of your children and yourself. If you hesitate, it could be the costliest moment in your life or the life of your child.

[Editors Note: (Companies in general whose products were found to be free of  cancer causing 1,4-Dioxane include:  Dr. Bronner’s, Aubrey Organics (my favorite), Burt’s Bees, Desert Essence, Dr. Hauschka, EO, TerrEssential, Zia Fresh, and Avalon Organics.] read more

Other Startling Things You Never Suspected
Could Cause Cancer:

Granite countertops (which emit radon)
High doses of Vitamin E
Repressed anger (Yes, let it all out, but not on each other! A good pillow fight helps. The loser can clean up the feathers.)
Rancid peanuts and seeds
Canola oil
Chronic inflammation
Canned tomatoes (Yes, the can is the problem)
Food laced with pesticides (Simple solution: buy ORGANIC!)
Vitamin D deficiency in the body (Simple solution: get out of the house. Go outside and enjoy God’s beautiful gift of sunshine. Did you know the further away from the equator you go, the higher the level of vitamin d deficiency diseases such as  multiple sclerosis, Dementia (Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia),  Prostate cancer, Schizophrenia, and Heart disease. Symptoms of deficiency include pain, muscle weakness, increased blood pressure, and depression. read more

Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin because the body naturally produces it when the skin is directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get the necessary daily amount through your diet or supplements. Vitamin D-rich foods include milk, cheese, and fatty fish like tuna, salmon, and mackerel. Certain foods such as cereals, orange juice, soy products, yogurt, and margarine are sometimes fortified with vitamin D.

The National Institutes of Health recommends that most adults get about 600 IUs (International Units) of vitamin D daily.

Hey, get your kids and yourself out of the house and into the sunshine a good 30 minutes each day. This will prevent vitamin D deficiency diseases.

More Startling Things You Never Suspected
Could Cause Cancer:
Chemicals from aerosol cans
Mammograms
Food microwaved in plastic containers (including
plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen
TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
even prolonged sitting has recently been definitively linked to cancer!

We enrolled this beauty. He is
officially our pesticide.

Some people die from complications caused by conventional cancer therapy not cancer that kills them.  More often than not, conventional cancer therapies have been shown to be more dangerous than the disease – that they cause more harm than good.

So what exactly happens when someone is reported as having “died of cancer?”  It means that someone’s immune system has been severely weakened that it was rendered powerless against pathogens, viruses and disease microorganisms.

When your immune system is working correctly, it’s almost impossible to get sick … or to succumb to cancer.

It’s rarely the presence of cancer cells or tumors that kill a patient.  Cancer cells come and go.  Every human being has cancer cells existing in the body at any given time – but those cells usually don’t multiply into the full-blown disease … unless the body’s immune system is compromised.

A Wind That Blows Lonely / The Antithesis of Love / Friday: Modern Art Museum

Love is the answer,
and the Prayer.

child-and-mom

Look into the future smiling back.

There’s a wind that blows
lonely
across the barren plains
of our memory.
Soft,
it caresses the face
that refused to turn
into the wind,
toward the ones
so Loved,
to look into
the future
smiling back.
And now,
the past
no longer belongs
to us.

“Yes I knowdon
how lonely life can be.

The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free.
But I don’t let the evening
bring me down

Now that you’re around me.

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
This is my belief.”
– Don Mclean

flowers-and-lake-b

Life itself is an answer to Prayer.

God still whispers
into the restless void
of our lonely aching Hearts.

But so very often,
we recognize not
His answers to our Prayers,
simply because
we have never had need to pray
for so very many Blessings in Life
already bestowed
upon us.

No,
we never had need
for such Prayer,
for our needs were met
long before
awareness
needed a reason
to be.

So very many Blessings in Life
we never recognized
were answers
to Prayer,
Prayers we never had the need
to say.

“Therefore I tell you,
do not worry about your life,
what you will eat, or about your body,
what you will wear.
For life is more than food,
and the body more than clothing.
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap,
they have neither storehouse nor barn,
and yet God feeds them.
Of how much more value are you
than the birds!”
Luke 12:22-24

Such is the Love
of a Mother and a Father
for a deeply Loved
Child.
Such is the Love
of your Father in Heaven
for YOU.

fountain-in-forest

    You are an answer to Prayer.

Life itself,
is an answer
to Prayer.

You
are an answer
to Prayer.

Look about you.
There is nothing,
absolutely NOTHING,
that does not answer
some Prayer,
somehow,
somewhere,
at sometime,

by someone.

island-with-tree-b

   Silence has the loudest voice.

Dear Friends,
there is scarcely anyone

who does not desire something
beyond
what is good for them.
So rather than hurt you
when the honesty’s too much,
God answers some Prayer
with the tender syllables
of silence,
until the moment
subsides.

Silence is like a River of Grace
inviting us to leap unafraid
into its beckoning depths.
It is dark and mysterious
in the waters of Grace.
Yet in the silent darkness
we are given new eyes.
In the Heart of the Divine
we can see more clearly who we are.
We are renewed and cleansed
in this
River of Silence.

– MACRINA WIEDERKEHR, Seven Sacred Pauses

Such is Love
in you,
that in the Sacred stillness
and the quiet
of a thoughtful moment,
with Wisdom and Grace,

  you proclaim a silent Love
Divine.

Silence is the only language
of the realized.

“There are times
when silence
has the loudest voice.”
Leroy Brownlow

By simply accepting
what God already provides,
we are made aware
and acknowledge
Prayer
never offered,
never needed,
but answered
just the same.

My Dear Friends,
Love

is the answer,
and
the Prayer.

“In the darkness of my dreaming,
the Light of you will stay.
If I could be close beside you,

If I could be where you are,
If I could reach out and touch you,
and bring you back home.
Is there a way I can find you
Is there a sign I should know,
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home
to me.”
– Roma Ryan

So very often
we find ourselves
in the midst
of the greatest Answer
to the most fervent Prayer:
that we are
deeply
Loved.

Welcome Home.

With a deep seated Love of Courage to map the unknown.

The Antithesis of
Love

My Precious Friends,
Addiction
is the antithesis
of Love.
It can become
the destroyer of Worlds –
of your World,
and sadly,
that of your child.

Little understood,
like Cancer,
it devours the very substance
of the Life
we pretend goes on.
The fabric of our existence
feeds our addictions.
And the bacterial excrement of
Alcohol,
like cancer, can devour
and permanently change
the very structure
of the Human brain,
and more importantly,
the Hopes and Dreams,
of our precious Children.

Alcohol, like cancer, can devour and permanently change the very structure of the Human brain.

People who have been drinking
large amounts of alcohol
for long periods of time
develop serious and persistent
changes IN THE BRAIN.

It is
much like an enemy in battle,
sneaking behind the lines
to disarm the troops
before they can engage
in combat,
while front line soldiers
stare straight ahead,
totally unaware,
wondering what is going on,
and why we cannot attack
and win.

Our ignorance,
our blind arrogance,
our naivety,
disarm us
and we never know
how!

“Sometimes we know,
sometimes we don’t.

Sometimes we give,
sometimes we won’t.

Sometimes we’re strong,
sometimes we’re wrong.

Sometimes we cry.

Well,
we’re gonna have to sit down
and think it right through.
If we’re only Human
what more can we do?
– Van Morrison

Our other addictions –
to linear thinking –
becoming too focused to get
the BIG picture,

to compressing time,
to the allure of complexity and dependency
upon technology,
to drugs we know
virtually nothing about,
have shrunk the number of outlets
for the daring, aggressive nature
of mankind,
that fought the good fight,
with a deep seated
Love of Courage
to map the unknown
and go
where mankind
has never gone
before.

This saddens,
but doesn’t surprise.
The Heroes
of our proud Past,
the Soldiers of our good fortune,
no longer are
of the same branch,
on the same tree,
or even
in the same forest.

The courage
to Love one another
enough to fight
the good fight,
to vanquish
the enemy within,
we cannot accept,
because
we cannot even recognize
that it is us.

“We shall meet the enemy,
and not only may he be ours,
he may be us.”
– Walter C. Kelly, Jr.

But when Life
breaks you,
and brings you
to your knees,
know that God will hear you
through your fervent Prayer,
and hold you
in warm embrace.

akiane“If we experienced the present through Eternity
and Eternity through the present,
we would know true Love.”
– Akiane Kramarik
from her upcoming book:
Eternity Is Not That Long

Love
can command you,
it can rule over
your precious Heart

or
you can let it
pass you by.

But please remember:

Everything
outside of Love
is a lie.

Do not be trapped
within a prison
of doubt.
The Loving You
is no illusion.

The Honesty of your Love
is the only
Truth.

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you
free.

– John 8:32

Goodnight.

                                       On Friday, Nov. 4, 2016,

we will meet at the MODERN ART MUSEUM OF FORT WORTH, 3200 Darnell Street (telephone 817-738-9215) at 9:45 a.m. Do NOT drop your child(ren) off early or without Dr. and Mrs. Anderson present. Our docent guided tour of  “KAWS WHERE THE END STARTS”  will start at 10:00 a.m. Following the tour we will dine at the museum’s restaurant, Café Modern, at 11:30 a.m. Parents, guests and family members and friends are invited to join us.

                   Pick-up is at 2:30 p.m. at the museum.

After lunch we will have a self-guided tour of the permanent exhibit and shopping at the fabulous gift store. Parents are advised that mature subject matter may be on exhibit including language, nudity, and sexual content.

Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, SpongeBob, Hanna-Barbera, and Peanuts) to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity.

The Modern maintains one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art in the United States.

FINANCIAL: No fee for admission.

GIFT SHOP: Has fascinating items. (I bought a DOG Bowl! Stop laughing!)

LUNCH: Café Modern serves contemporary American cuisine. Please provide funds for lunch.  One check per table will be provided. A gratuity will be added. Students please order from the Children’s Menu & Observe POLICIES of the Museum.

Uniform pants with a belt, polished shoes & monogrammed red shirts required. Parents / NEIGHBORS / SIBLINGS & WHO ARE YOU? are always invited to participate on our trips.

This World is so Beautiful / His Beautiful Child also Dreams / Cell Phone Radiation Can Cause Cancer

Emerson quote landscape

Photographs by Robert Frutos

“I declare
this world is so beautiful
that I can hardly believe
it exists.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson observed:
“Though we travel the world over
to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us
or we find it not.”

Please allow me to share the thoughts
of a man I deeply admire. His writings have
changed many lives, including mine,
and brought about a deep and personal
awareness and precious insights that
could only have come from God.

John Muir
was America’s most famous and influential
naturalist, conservationist, author,
environmental philosopher,
early advocate of wilderness preservation
helping to establish Yosemite and Sequoia
National Parks
and founder of the Sierra Club.

He experienced in nature
a religious ecstasy.
Before the Majesty of natural beauty,
he found himself humble
before the power of God
who created it all.

forest 2

      The wilderness in the Human Soul

Muir learned to read
from the Divine Manuscript,
the rocks and the trees.
He came to discover complete freedom

and had experiences that
seemed timeless
and devoid of space.
He felt his body had no weight.

“Life seemed neither long nor short,” he wrote,
“and we take no more heed to save time
or make haste than do the
trees and stars.

He entered the Eternal now
and experienced days
that seemed to have
neither end nor beginning.
John discovered an immortality,
and experienced himself
dissolved into the landscape.

forest 3

                        God’s first temples

Muir experienced
the inter-relatedness of all things,
the union of rocks and clouds,
the humanness of the landscape,
the wilderness in the human soul,
a kinship with the wild Nature
he grew to love,
a oneness.
One of my favorite thoughts

from John is this:

“A few minutes ago every tree was excited,
bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling,
tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship.
But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent,
their songs never cease.

Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life,
every fiber thrilling like harp strings,
while incense is ever flowing
from the balsam bells and leaves.

No wonder the hills and groves
were God’s first temples,

and the more they are cut down and hewn
into cathedrals and churches,
the farther off and dimmer
seems the Lord himself.”

forest 4

                      The Divine Manuscript

Muir wrote of being struck by
how clean nature is.
All plants are clean;
all animals are clean.
Of all the living things on the planet,
mankind alone seems dirty.

“The wilderness is a natural place
to consummate the longings
of the Soul.”

“We are now in the mountains
and they are in us,
kindling enthusiasm,
making every nerve quiver,
filling every pore and cell of us.
Our flesh-and-bone tabernacle
seems transparent as glass
to the beauty about us,
as if truly an inseparable part of it.”

forest 5

  Humble before the power of God

My dear friends,
we are a part
of everything around us.
We are truly
one.
And we are
One with God.


Have I ever felt the way
John Muir describes
his feelings?
Yes, my friends,
Many times,
daily.
And I feel very deeply
that the greatest gift
I could ever convey to you
Is the message found
in the writings of
John Muir.

Please discover
who you are,
and why.
Take time
to say a Prayer
in the unbelievably beautiful
Cathedral of God’s Heart.

You will find it
beneath a sky
filled with a Grace
you cannot deny.

The peace
your precious Heart

longs for
is waiting patiently
for you.
Now you know
where to find it.

I beg of you,
do not wait
too long.

You are a Dream within a Dream.

Unconscious for a third
Of our lives,
The life inside our Dreams
We never fully realize.
And much like our Dreams,
In life
So many know what they want,
The life they have never lived,
And may never live.

We walk in the footsteps
Of others.
We learn about life
From someone,
Someone other
Than the One
Who Loved us enough
To give us
His Very Own
Breath of Life.

Awakening begins with
Hope and Prayer,
And remembering
We are His Dream,
And His Dreamer.

We’ve been around, we fall, we fly.

Tonight, tonight I just can’t rest
I’ve got this joy

How to reprogram cancer cells
back to normal.

Restoring normal miRNA levels
may potentially stop cancer growth,
Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered.
(August 25, 2015)
A way to potentially reprogram cancer cells
back to normalcy has been discovered
by researchers on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus.

The finding, published in Nature Cell Biology,
represents “an unexpected new biology
that provides the code,
the software for turning off cancer,”
says the study’s senior investigator,
Panos Anastasiadis, Ph.D.,
chair of the Department of Cancer Biology
on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus.

New Study:
Cellphones Really Are Giving You
Cancer

Multiple studies have revealed
that cell phone radiation can cause cancer.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer
classified radio frequency fields ,
including those from cell phones,
as a possible carcinogen in 2011? (source)

The dangers of cell phone use
gained credibility in 2011
when the World Health Organization
admitted that cell phone radiation
may cause cancer.

The statement was made by 31 scientists,
from 14 different countries,
after reviewing evidence.

A child’s brain absorbs much more radiation
than that of an adult.

Studies like this serve one major purpose:
to remind us that we should be using
common sense and knowledge
to better protect ourselves
and our precious children
each day.

Now,
Let’s learn another way to spell
Deadly.
You may want to take notes.

And please, I beg of you,
show this information to your children.
They are much more intelligent
than we think.
Well,

are exposed to excessive radiation.

Top 20 Highest Radiation Cell Phones
(maximum possible SAR “specific absorption rate”
level from phones)

The SAR can be misleading as it measures the maximum radiation a cellphone emits and does not reflect the average amount of radiation it emits. There is accumulating evidence that cellphones that operate on GSM networks emit significantly more radiation than do cellphones operating on CDMA networks.

CDMA, or Code Division Multiple Access, is the type of cellular network used by the phone companies Verizon and Sprint. GSM, or Global System for Mobile Communications, is the type used by AT&T and T-Mobile.

The radiation spikes at the beginning of GSM phone calls means that they emit, overall, up to 28 times more radiation than CDMA phones. read more

A child passes through our lives
Like a celestial object in space,
Dancing through the universe
  Rapidly past our small, lonely planet,
Past a lonely heart in need.
sky2 The light of your life,

The stories you and only you
Can share,
Stories that should be,
Must be told,
Will truly become a treasure
More valued than gold.
Yes, the arteries from your heart
Are the richest veins
Of gold.

Reveal to your child
How you see the Universe,
What tomorrow can bring,
And all the joy
  Their Life has given you.
And as you tell
Of so many Blessings,
Let your heart sing.

sky 4

The Love of our beloved children
Can only wither and die
In the emptiness of space,
In the loneliness of time,
If we do nothing.
Nothingness
Is a destroyer of worlds.

Gather the flowers of love
From the Garden
Of life that remains,
And fill the void
Felt inside.

Yes, there are many
Shattered and empty hearts,
Created by simply

Never knowing,
Never being told,
They were truly loved.

All around us

Are the tattered remains
Of so many fragile hearts,
Broken by the waters
Of so many tears
That have flowed,
Standing at the foot
Of so many graves.

sky 3

Ever late,
They could have loved
Those left behind
With the flowers of their Spring,
With the joyful tears
Of Life and Love.

In sharing your time,
And the hidden treasures of your joy
With your precious children,
You create such beautiful moments together,
That this time will become worth
All that is of any real value
To you and them
In this world.

Do not wait,
For the time shall never be right,
It will escape you!
Time creates its own illusions,
Shattering the hourglass,
That by pretense of its being,
Feigns to measure
That which does not exist

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAYes,
Tomorrow will always be too late.

So please stop.
Make the world as you imagine it to be,
Go away.
Place your loving arms around the real world,
Your child of so many dreams.
Fill the heart
Of such longing and desire
With truth,
With your deep and abiding Love,
Love everlasting,
The Love that flows through you
By the Grace of God above.

And after all the deeply heartfelt feelings,
Of knowing, surely knowing,
That your child is all that matters
In this world to you,

That you are in Love,
In Love with the dream come true,
The Gift of your child,
The beautiful Blessing of birth,
Of Life and Love renewed,

There will blossom,
Like a flower in the wind,
Such a depth
Of unbelievably beautiful emotion,
That you will rediscover the joy in life,
And the bountiful, beautiful Love
That has been ever so
Quietly,

Patiently,
Waiting,

Just for you.

SMART METERS? – from our friends at NaturalNews.com. read more

When Thomas Edison began wiring New York City with a direct current electricity distribution system in the 1880s, he gave humankind the magic of electric light, heat, and power; in the process, though, he inadvertently opened a Pandora’s Box of unimaginable illness and death.

Smart meters send and receive wireless RF/MW signals throughout homes and businesses. These smart meter RF/MW levels are far higher than those already reported to cause health risks.

Compliance is not safety, since the existing FCC safety limits are under challenge, and have already been called ‘insufficient to protect public health’ by some federal agencies.

Dirty Electricity tells the story of Dr. Samuel Milham, the scientist who first alerted the world about the frightening link between occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic pollution, and human disease. Milham takes readers through his early years and education, following the twisting path that led to his discovery that most of the twentieth century diseases of civilization, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and suicide, are caused by electromagnetic field exposure.

Wyatt is the dog whisperer.

Wyatt is the dog whisperer.

Dr. Milham warns that because of the recent proliferation of radio frequency radiation from cell phones and towers, terrestrial antennas, Wi-Fi and Wi-max systems, broadband internet over power lines, and personal electronic equipment, we may be facing a looming epidemic of morbidity and mortality. In Dirty Electricity, he reveals the steps we must take, personally and as a society, to coexist with this marvelous but dangerous technology.

Daniel Hirsch, a lecturer and expert in nuclear policy at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), has written a report that reveals smart meters emit 160 times more cumulative whole body exposure than cell phones.

Dr. Magda Havas, associate professor and researcher at Trent University, has studied dirty electricity since 2003.
Some of her findings when dirty electricity is removed:
• Improvement in the symptoms associated with MS
• Diabetic’s blood sugars stabilized
• Decreased breast cancer risk
• Body’s efficient use of calcium restored
• Appropriate melatonin distribution returned, improving sleep patterns
.
Dr. Milham’s findings led him to contact higher-ups in the military and the government, with no response. This prompted him to author his book. Dr. Milham’s work found correlations between communities using little or no electricity and those using dirty electricity. The communities exposed to dirty electricity had a much higher incidence of many chronic diseases and other health afflictions.How does this happen?The body is an electrical being. Every cell, tissue, and organ transmits information through tiny electrical currents which are disturbed by these high frequency fields, setting the body up for disease.When suffering from exposure to dirty electricity the symptoms are wide ranging and diverse.These symptoms may manifest through:
• The skin
• Sleep disturbances
• Muscle and joint pain
• Physical and mental exhaustion
• Migraines
• Light headedness
• Nausea
• Loss of cognitive function
• Irritability
• Anxiety
• Muscle spasms
• Numbness and tingling
• Pain in the lower extremities
• High temperature

The Creation of Dirty Electricity

An example of how dirty electricity is created stems from how cell phone towers utilize energy. The towers operate on direct current. However, the electrical current supplied to the tower is in the form of an alternating current; therefore, the supply needs to be changed or converted. This is accomplished using an inverter. Inverters interrupt the alternating current and are a source of dirty electricity. This dirty electricity is put back into the power supply lines, which in turn, can enter a building through their electrical wiring.

Dirty electricity also affects electronic equipment.

Exposure in the average home comes from:

• Cell phone chargers

• Computers

• Office equipment

• Television sets

• Dimmer switches

• Wireless technologies

• Energy saving devices

• Electrical wiring in walls

• Candescent fluorescent light bulbs

Avoiding Exposure (Here is where you can take notes.)

• Change all CFLs to candescent or LED bulbs

• Keep a good distance away from wiring and other sources of dirty electricity

• Limit the use of “dirty electricity appliances”

• Replace unsafe electrical devices with safer alternatives

• Purchase a GS meter and, filter out electromagnetic pollution as necessary with GS filters

Dirty electricity is everywhere. Undiagnosable illness can be a result of exposure to this source of electromagnetic pollution. Implementing these changes may eliminate symptoms, thus eliminating illness. Limiting or avoiding exposure to dirty electricity is beneficial for everyone, avoiding sickness in the first place.

Saffy for President

VOTE: Saffy for President (Hey, everything else has gone to the dogs!) She promises not to read any of the bills either and to veto all of them. She will trim the Federal Budget down to zero. Now that’s a conservative! Only ten percent of Americans approved of the job Congress was doing recently, while 87 percent disapproved. Saffy can roam the halls of the White House doing nothing but sniffing for treats (you know, bribes) and do better than that. Don’t think there is no hope, other dogs have been elected to office.  read more
