How to Live in the Mystery of Life and Love It / Coping With The Fear / No School Until May 4

Dedicated
with all my Love
to the precious memory of
Eugene R. Retz.

I have a Family Heritage
I am very Proud of.
.
My Uncle,
Eugene R. Retz,
fought in the Battle of Bulge.
He was captured by German forces
and spent over a year
as a prisoner of war.
He truly suffered from the experience
his entire Life
from coming close to death
by starvation.

He was
as Kind and Loving
and Compassionate
a Man
as I have ever met.

His precious Life
epitomized
Courage
Dedication
and
Love.
.
“I recall when Gene was released from prisoner of war.
I believe it was close to Christmas time
and I was a young boy of about 8 years old.
I had just received an electric American Flyer train for Christmas.
On several occasions, Gene would come over to my home
and he and I would play (to my Joy) with the electric train.
At that time, I knew him only
as gentle and seemingly frail.”

“The great Beauty of Life
is its Mystery,

the inability to know
what course our Life will take,

and diligently work to transmute
into our final form,

based upon a Lifetime of constant discovery
and enterprising effort.
Accepting
the unknown and unknowable

eliminates regret.”
K. J. Oldster

My Dear Friends,
no matter how much we learn
about ourselves and our complexities
and that of other Beautiful Living Creations, 
scientists have not answered
the truly important question

What is Life?

There are times
when we feel as though 
we have lived many Lives,
been to the heights and depths
of Mountains and Valleys,
and never known rest,
never become aware
of the Gifts of so many years,
of the beating Hearts
of so many precious Lives.

My Friends,
we must Live by Faith
to possess all that is truly ours,
ALL
that God has gifted
to us.

“We live by Faith,
not by sight.”
2 Corinthians 5:7

God
controls the whole vastness
of the great Mysteries
of ALL things.

He Abides
with every beat of every Heart,
with every up-lifted cry
of our pleading voice,
with the crash of our fragile emotions,
and with the whirl of the wind
across the shifting sands
of Time.

“Why
do we resist the Mystery
that change brings?

When we get too rigid and inflexible,
rigor mortise of the Soul
sets in.”

Dennis Merritt Jones

      There is so much more to Life, than Living.

If
you find yourself exhausted
from the cares and worries
of this Life,
close your tired eyes,
sit motionless for a few moments

and breathe deeply.
Immerse yourself
in a conversation
with your Heavenly Father,
in Prayer.
Go outside of the artificial constructions
of Human Kind.
Go into the Beautiful Cathedral of God,
into His Natural World
of the Great and Vast
Garden of Living Treasures.

Become intensely aware
of all of the Beautiful Life around you,
the breathing leaves
of His Beautiful whispering Trees,
the singing and chattering of Joyful birds,
of the Vibrant Living Earth,
of the Moment
and the Mystery.

There is
so much more
to Life,
than Living.

Speak
to the Majesty
of this Moment
in the Language of the Heart.

Pray
and give Thanks
for the bountiful and Beautiful
Life
we cannot even define.

The power of awareness
  plows a deep furrow
into the Human Heart.

“To one who has Faith,
no explanation is necessary.
To one without Faith,
no explanation is possible.” 
Thomas Aquinas

As our tears purify the Heart
and give us understanding,
they unite
with Hearts joined
in ever searching
for Love.

                           Garden of Living Treasures

“Who can say when the roads meet
That Love might be in your Heart.
And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your Heart.

Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose
– Only time.
And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows,
only time.
Who knows?
Only time.”

Enya
.
Your smiles join you
to God’s Ecstasy.
And our tears unite us
with Hearts joined in misery.

Beyond this day
appears the Dawn of
Hope.

The Power
of God’s Everlasting Love
is sown deep
into the Human Heart.
It resides
in the valleys
of our fears.
For we are
His deeply Loved
Children.

“We,
by Nature,
don’t want to have to Trust a God
we cannot see or understand,
we are happiest when,
having Trusted Him,
we have found Him Trustworthy.
Doing so at the time
may have seemed imprudent,
but in retrospect
seems at once sage and courageous.”
Seth Barnes

The River of Life
will flow from this Day
into Tomorrow,
and turn our fears and our sorrow
into Joy and laughter.

Such is the Power

of Love.

This moment
is always given to us
to be a redefining moment,
when we may look more deeply
into the Mystery of Life
  and learn how to become
fully aware
of where we are
and what we are doing.
 
We stand before
an open door
in this and every moment
God grants to us.

Let us open every door
  and step into
a deeper awareness
of God’s Love
for us.

We truly are
Blessed.

We are Truly Loved
by God.
.
Let us share
His Love.

Goodnight.

Coping with the Fear

of COVID-19

by Diana Raab, MFA, Ph.D., author, speaker, educator, and survivor. She’s written nine books of nonfiction and poetry, including the recent Writing for Bliss and Writing for Bliss:  A Companion Journal.

The news has petrified us about the possibilities. Here’s how to cope.

Posted Mar 09, 2020 in Psychology Today

Confronting fear leads to a sense of accomplishment and a sense of empowerment, and allows us to feel a little more control over situations. The point of this blog post is not to provide a rationale for fear, but rather to suggest ways in which we can balance our fear by maintaining a sense of well-being during these types of challenging times. Try these self-care tips in the wake of fear:

 
  • Maintain a calm state of self-awareness and limit the amount of time you watch or listen to the news. It’s important to know what’s going on in the world, but you also need to know when to turn off the TV or stop reading the news and maintain a sense of balance. Tell yourself that being fearful might be causing some chaos in your life.
    .
  • Connect with others. Try to interact with positive-thinking individuals and those who have a good influence on you. These individuals can be friends or even a therapist. Listen to your heart and determine who resonates with your worldview. Studies have shown that loneliness can lead to the stress response, so try not to isolate yourself. With the most recent orders for “Safety in Place,” and lockdown, connecting via email, phone and letter writing is very important to minimize the chance of loneliness.
    .
  • Reduce stress. When stressed, cortisol production is increased. Cortisol helps fight inflammation in the body, but when it’s constantly secreted, then it’s less effective in fighting inflammation and disease. To reduce stress in your life, try maintaining a regular meditation practice, practicing yoga, and incorporating proper breathing techniques into your daily routine.
    .
  • Use humor, which is an excellent way to temper fear. It also helps keep things light and not so intense.
    .
  • Build your immunity. Those with strong immune systems minimize their chances of getting sick, so get proper exercise, eat well, and take the necessary supplements. Also, research has shown that those who get at least seven hours of sleep a night have more resistance to viruses, and thus have fewer side effects.
    .
  • Eat healthy foods. Try to avoid processed foods and sweeteners. Some foods that can contribute to your overall health include citrus fruits, red bell peppers, broccoli, garlic, ginger, spinach, almonds, yogurt, green tea, papaya, kiwi, poultry, sunflower seeds, and shellfish. Also, remember to stay hydrated and minimize alcohol consumption.
    .
  • Practice gratitude. When you’re feeling fearful, try replacing that emotion with an appreciation for all the good in your life. Even when under lockdown, it’s important to be grateful for having a roof over your head and some food in your refrigerator.
    .
  • Maintain a journaling practice. Journaling is a safe place where you can vent about your fears and frustrations. Sometimes writing can help you work through what’s bothering you. It can help you get out of the rabbit hole of negativity about how “awful” everything is. Gratitude journaling is also a powerful practice.
    .
  • Take up a hobby (or more than one). Think about what brings you peace of mind and also gives you pleasure, whether it’s golf, tennis, crafts, games, art, music, writing, or watching movies. Also, reading a good book can open your mind to new ideas and thought processes – especially inspirational memoirs and novels. There are many things you can do in the solitude of your home.
    .
  • Consider hypnosis. This can help eliminate negative thought patterns and beliefs. (It’s more successful for some than for others.)
    .
  • Practice good hygiene. Use hand sanitizers of proper hand washing techniques when in contact with anyone or anything outside your home. Hand washing is critical for disease prevention and spread, especially before eating and during food preparation. It’s important to wash for at least 20 seconds. Cover your mouth when coughing and sneezing, and if you do have to cough or sneeze, do so into the inside of your elbow. In general, viruses can live on surfaces for at least 24 hours, so viruses can be easily passed among family members. Make sure to frequently wipe down surfaces.

In summary,
accept the fact that this strain of coronavirus is part of our existence now and the numbers seem to be increasing by the minute. This virus is very contagious and it’s symptoms more serious than many in the past. While dealing with the difficulties of this time, It’s important to affirm the positive and remember what is good and powerful in our lives. Surrendering can bring about a sense of peace and calm; and in doing so, we’re empowering ourselves and not allowing fear to control us.

One Heartbeat Away / Rear-View Mirror Thinking / No School The Week

Dedicated
with my deep admiration
and sincere appreciation to
Richard Fletcher.
While in Boy Scout Troop 17
many years ago,
Richard gave countless hours
of patient counseling and friendship
to this very lost young man
at the time in Life
when it was most needed.
.
He encouraged, guided and enabled me to
continue the struggle with Life
and later
enter broadcasting.
.
I become host of the
Bill Anderson Music Show at KSTB radio
and later, Announcer and News Director at KWKC radio,
Co-Host of the Curtis Stone Soul Show,
(I will share more on this eye opening/awakening chapter later)
and Staff Announcer and Host of the
On The Line” talk show simulcast over
KFMN-FM, KACC and KBLE in Abilene.
These positions in broadcasting
enabled me to work my way through College.

How well I remember
listening to Richard report on the
assassination of President John Kennedy
while tearfully sitting in the High School Library.
His compassionate reporting
inspired me enter the broadcasting profession.

And
when the precious Mother of Don and Billy Graves
asked that I become the Scoutmaster of Troop 57 in Abilene,
since no one was available,
I requested my friend Richard to serve in that capacity until
I became old enough to qualify.
Richard, with me as his Assistant, gladly did so.
Don and Billy continued their Scouting experience
along with many, many others.

And today,
I am very proud of Rev. Donald Graves,
of the Center for Spiritual Living in Tucson,
who delivers powerful messages in dynamic ways:
.

“God is all there is,
so we are by Nature a part of God,
filled with and surrounded by God.”
.

Thank You
Richard!

May God always
abide with you.
.
Your Life
is truly
a Blessing.

Love,
my friends,
ripples through
time.
It never dies.

You
are one Heartbeat away
from the next moment
in someone’s
Life.

And
the Violin
of your Heart
can play
for an Eternity,
if only
you let it be.

My Dear Friends,
the clutter, noise and superficial busyness
of our Life today
can rob us of enjoyment and the Wonder
of the Beautiful World around us.

Please
take the time
to simplify Living
and reconnect with each other.

Each one of us
possesses the innate desire
to see the Beauty
that surrounds us
more clearly

.A telephone call
to an old friend,
to someone in need
of hearing a caring voice,
offers you a brief vacation.
It offers a new perspective
on what is truly important.

It can unplug you
from the illusions of the moment
and recharge your Heart
in a Beautiful way.

Our way of Life,
our values,
and the Gifts we have been given,
can only be sustained
and passed on to countless
generations,
if we are
giving.

The atmosphere
we create around us
brings out the Beauty of our Being,
with genuine smiles and Loving experience.
Each moment we are gifted
is a precious Pearl
that can be made
truly memorable.

Goodnight.

Rear-View Mirror Thinking
by Carl Phillips

“It’s not the daily increase
but daily decrease.
Hack away at the unessential”
Bruce Lee
.

My name is Carl Phillips.

After a period of reflection several years ago, I realized I was accumulating more in my life.

More things that didn’t matter.

More commitments I wasn’t truly passionate about keeping.

More friction!

So, I started to take some action.  That action has meant:

In short, the quality of my Life has improved. 

I have concerned myself a whole lot less with the need to keep up.  I march (or relax) to my own drum.  I feel happier and like I am on a path of my own setting.  

Many of us spend a large part of our lives looking back.

Thinking about how things once were. How fewer lines we had on our faces yesterday.

What we could do, that we no longer can. What we could have done differently, if given time over again.

Choices made, we would like to unmake. How we could have dealt with a situation better. How we could have changed an outcome.

Whilst time for reflection, learning our lessons and trying not to repeat our mistakes are all to be applauded, too much time spent looking to the past means we start to miss where we are now. This rear-view mirror bias will eventually catch up to us.

Regret is never likely to fuel our best selves but can become a constant companion, if we always look back. And all too often, when we look back, we do so with a rose tinted view. Glorifying the past at the expense of today.

The inconvenient truth, yesterday is gone. Last week and last year are even further gone. We’ll never get them back. Moments in time that have now passed.

We can make peace with that or we can fight it. What we cannot do is alter the fact.

Making Peace with Time
What if we focused our energy on the now instead? What if we committed to learn our lessons but worked on making today the best it can be?

What if we let go of the shackles of the past and concentrated on the present? Investing ourselves fully in this moment.

What if we made peace with time?

What if we let go of our rear-view mirror bias?

Let Love Be YOU / Cancer IS Preventable / No School for the next two weeks

 

Climb the Mountain.
To the high land
reside.
And take someone with you,
someone in need,
to
be
by your side.

My Dear Friends,
the Light of a Star
shines down upon us.
And when darkness falls,
with God by our side,
we will find
our way.
.
A Promise lives
within the Heart
that beats for
everyone
that night has
overcome.
For when we
rise,
we will find
the Sun.

When shadows fall,
the Journey has just begun
to the Light of Day,
to the Time
when night is overcome,
and you rise to see
the Light
of our Beautiful Sun.

“May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away.
May it be you journey on
To Light the day.
When the night is overcome
You rise to find the Sun.”
Ni B. Eith, Ryan Roma Shane

Love
may pretend to die
in the winter
of discontent.

In blizzards
of emotions
lost,
fragile Hearts may feel
a killing frost.

       The shadow’s call will fly away.

But tears of
Joy and of pain
can
become like falling rain
,
to fill an
Ocean
you sail
across,
to bring Love
Home again.

Each breathless word
whispered
by the Sacred Song
of your Life
to help someone,
becomes Music
in each moment
you
are truly alive.

Gently close
your tired eyes
and Dream of Peace
and Pray,
for we
to live as
“One”.

“We danced amongst the Stars that night,
When Joy had fallen far from sight.
We danced under the Sun so bright
And when all seemed lost,
we held on tight.
.
We danced to the music of Hummingbirds.
And we danced in the silence
when there were no words.
We danced in the shadows of fear and doubt.
And we danced when we questioned
what Life’s about.
.
We danced amongst the evergreens
That posed for painters Winter scenes.
We danced in the Winters bitter chill.
And when we danced
our World
stood still.

.
For that’s what Love was meant to be,
To find the dance when we cannot see.
To write a new song when the music stops,
With lyrics that caress every tear that drops.
For when the rhythm changes and tempo slowed,
We’re called to dance with the seeds we sowed.
.
For Life is hard,
there is no doubt.
But Dancing through it,
is what Life’s about.

 – Ernesto Cortazar

Your Immortal Love Song
always remains
in our World.
Absolutely Beautiful
and meaningful.

Yes,
the gentle wind
of words whispered
in the Light of Love,
will be heard
from Above.
Even
on a cold night
in the fragile Life
of someone in need.
.
“For the Beauty of the Earth,
For the Beauty of the skies
For the Love which from our Birth
Over and around us lies.
.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful Hymn of Praise.
For the Beauty of the hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of Light.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful Hymn of Praise.
.
For the joy of Human Love
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on Earth and friends Above.
For all gentle thoughts and mild.
  .

Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of Praise
For each perfect Gift of Thine.
To our race so freely given
Graces Human and Divine,
Flowers of Earth and Buds of Heaven.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn,
our joyful hymn of Praise
.

Love is a Song,
a serenade for you.
Just
sing along,
and let Love
be YOU.

Goodnight.

When seen through the eyes
Of those who are Blessed with
Love.”

From: The Underground Health Reporter

.
According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes… That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer – causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies – and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

  1. The food you eat…
    2. the air you breathe…
    3. the clothes you wear…
    4. the water you drink…
    5. personal care products you use…
    6. medications you take…
    7. the water you bathe in…
    8. virtually everything you consume, and
    9. everything you do – or are exposed to –
    causes cancer these days!

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in 
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

  • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
  • Genetically modified food
  • Most laundry detergents
  • Commercial hair dyes
  • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein) Hey, get an all electric car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Granite counter-tops (which emit radon) Yes, My Friend! Get rid of the granite counter tops.
  • Rancid peanuts and seeds
  • Canola oil
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Food laced with pesticides
  • Chemicals from aerosol cans
  • Mammograms
  • X-Rays
  • Food microwaved in plastic containers (including plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)
  • Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.      $   $   $   $   $   $   $   $
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.

My friends, until we start electing people to represent US, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply Loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and Loving people to represent us. Frankly, these individuals need to Love us more than they Love themselves.

We MUST recruit good people to run for office.

These Loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their Hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our precious Children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous Heart of this Nation, there is no hope.

Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

And yes, it is a cancer of the Heart, our Heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing.”
Edmund Burke

The Essence of Love / Things You Can Do For Depression / Friday: No School Today

       The essence of Love is awareness.

There are no words
to describe
the Beauty I discovered
in God’s Glorious and Magnificent
World of Nature,
while camping under
the Stars at night,
and hiking through the woods
in the bright, beautiful Sunlight
of God’s Love.

The Beautiful reflections
of the very Blessed past
bring back a tidal wave
of Treasured memories.

To keep Beautiful thoughts
and reflections
in our minds,
is one of the Noblest of pursuits.
Close your eyes
and Pray.
Feel
your Heavenly Father’s Arms
around you.

How Blessed we are.

We all Live
in the Creation of God’s Wonder
and Beauty and Mystery.

Let us
give Him Praise
and Thanksgiving.

Love
is the only reality,

and it is not
a mere sentiment.
It is the Ultimate Truth
that lies at the
Heart of Creation.”
Mohandas Gandhi

The essence
of Love,
is awareness.
.
Love lies in wait,
within
the deeper Power
of our
unconscious state.

The Sacred Tabernacle
of the Human Heart
is capable of
deep intuition.

As it shows us
its own way,
it measures the abyss
which separates us
from the illusions
of Life.

My Dear Friends,
our fragile Heart
is seeking the pathway
of deep
Joy.

Let it be.

Let it be.

Goodnight.

“Truth
is not something
outside to be discovered,
it is something inside
to be realized.”
Osho

From our friends at WEBMD:

Depression

An estimated 19 million American adults are living with major depression. At WebMD you’ll find in-depth depression information including symptoms, medications, and therapy.

Here are some of the things you can do:

Reach Out

Meet a close friend for a walk if you have one nearby. If they’re all too far away, make a call. Talking with someone you care about can help you feel supported and less stressed. Along with lifting your mood, research shows it can strengthen your immune system so your body is better at fighting illness, and it’s good for your heart, too.

Have a Little Dark Chocolate

It has chemicals called flavanols that can make more blood flow to your brain and may help you think more clearly. But don’t overdo it. Chocolate also has fat and calories and lots of caffeine, too. Just a small square of the dark stuff – 70% cocoa or more – 2 or 3 times a week may be all you need.

Play Some Tunes

Music can affect your brain in the same way chocolate does. And when you sing along – it doesn’t matter how well – your brain makes natural painkillers that can give your mood a boost.

Laugh

This can help ease tension in your muscles, and when you breathe in quickly, your heart and lungs get a boost, too. Laughing also makes your brain release chemicals that help your body fight pain and infection. So hunt down some funny clips of your favorite TV show. It’s not goofing off – it’s good for you.

Do a Good Deed

When you do something nice for someone, your body makes hormones called endorphins. These are natural painkillers linked to trust, pleasure, and a connection with other people. Helping others also has been shown to raise your self-esteem.

Hug Your Dog

Just being around your pet can make you feel better. Your body releases a hormone called oxytocin that lifts your mood and bonds you to other living things.
.

Drink Water

When your body needs water, you can feel tired, cranky, or a little blah. It may even affect your mental sharpness. If you’re not excited about drinking a glass of water, you can get it from food: Fruits and vegetables are good sources.

Go Outside

Not only can it lift your mood, but it also can be good for your blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and stress level. You’ll get even more out of it if you take your dog with you and add in some exercise. At the office, a plant on your desk or a picture of the woods can make you feel less anxious or irritable.

Exercise

You don’t have to sweat it out at the gym. A 10-minute walk seems to lift your spirits just as well as a 45-minute workout. And people who exercise often deal with stress better overall. Invite a friend and do something outside to boost the benefit.

Eat Something (Healthy)

If you don’t eat enough to fuel your day, you can get tired, hungry, and maybe even a little snippy – “hangry.” Just make sure to eat the good stuff: Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and lean meats have nutrients to feed your brain and perk you up. They also take longer to digest, so you have energy throughout the day instead of all at once. Things like junk food may give you a boost, but a crash may follow.

Meditate

Focus on your breath and try to keep your mind free of thoughts. When a worry enters your mind, try to let it go. It’s OK if you get distracted – the point of meditation is to continue to try. It can calm you down and lift your mood, especially if you
make it a regular part of your day.

Rest

Sleep can ease anxiety and boost your mood and focus – try for 7 to 9 hours a night. If you have trouble going to sleep, keep your room cool, dark, and quiet and don’t watch TV or use the computer right before you turn in. It also helps to go to bed and get up at the same times every day.

Take a Vacation

If you just can’t shake out of it, you may need time to recharge, relax, and take stock. This can help you see all the good things in your life that get lost in the rush of daily routine. It also gets you away from the stress of work or home life and can help you bond with family and friends.

Hearts,

it can only be
felt
and found with the Heart.”

The Surprising Benefits of Clean Eating

Eating unprocessed food is a great way to improve your overall diet, but proponents say it can also do great things for your mental health.

By Matthew Solan

click here to read more

Erica learned the hard way how food affects her physical and mental health. Ten years ago, she worked in the high-pressure, go-go-go TV industry. Meals were devoured in minutes. Drinking two cans of Coke a day was the norm.

The work stress became overwhelming, and she soon left. But it wasn’t until later that she made the connection between what she ate and how it made her feel.

“I was not happy and my job at that time was no longer rewarding,” she says, “but I came to understand how my eating habits and choices had contributed to that.”

Erica realized that her food choices had aggravated her episodes of stress – and, conversely, that her stress had contributed to poor food choices.

“When I adopted a clean eating diet, where I cut out the processed and comfort foods, I immediately noticed a change not only in my mood, but how I reacted when things went wrong,” Erica says.

“No longer was my instinct to reach for the chips, soda, or ice cream.”

Less packaged, more whole

The term “clean eating” is trendy nowadays.

An entire magazine is devoted to the subject. From TV chef Curtis Stone and Whole Foods co-founder John Mackey to actresses Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba, a slew of personalities and celebrities swear by clean eating.

But what does it mean exactly?

“Without all the excess sugar from processed foods and dairy, I had much less of the mental ups and downs that can happen when faced with daily stress.

“There are a lot of different interpretations, and no one fixed definition,” says

Pamela Fergusson, RD, PhD, a registered dietitian and consultant with Fresh Start Nutrition in Toronto.

“But generally, it refers to eating less processed foods and more whole foods.”

That means food in its natural or near-natural state, with minimal or no added chemicals, additives, or refined sugar. Ideally, what you eat should not be processed, or minimally processed, allowing it to retain high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients.

One way to approach clean eating is to skip anything that comes in a box, can, or similar packaging.

But there are exceptions.

“For instance, beans come in cans that may add a little extra salt for flavor and preservation, but they are still beans, which are a nutritious whole food,” Fergusson notes.

You can ID processed foods as those that undergo changes from their natural state: think instant oatmeal instead of steel-cut oats, or French fries instead of whole potatoes.

Sound simple?

For the most part, it is.

“Clean eating encourages eating more of the right kind of foods without thinking about low-fat, low-calorie, or low-carb,” says Fergusson.

If you follow a particular eating plan – including a vegetarian, vegan or Paleo diet – you can still incorporate clean eating into your regimen. Just make a point to avoid processed staples.

For instance, vegetarians may enjoy frozen veggie burgers, but they don’t meet the guidelines of clean eating. Vegans may opt for soy cheese, but that’s often made with additives and preservatives.

Food-mood connection 

Clean eating can have a positive impact on your mood. Indeed, research is beginning to demonstrate how our food choices—not just what we eat, but what we don’t eat—can influence how we think and feel.

The scientific connection between our brain and food is an intertwining path, but here’s an abbreviated version:

When you get stressed, the body goes into fight-or-flight mode, releasing the hormones adrenal and cortisol to combat the stressful event. This reaction typically suppresses our appetite.

If stress persists, however, and you find yourself in a constant state of worry, anxiety, or prolonged exposure to stressful situations, these hormones overload the body and cause heightened inflammation and negative emotions.

“The worse someone feels, the more likely they will seek comfort,” explains Eva Selhub, MD, author of the books Your Health Destiny, The Love Response and Your Brain on Nature.

“Food can act as that comfort, which is why we call foods high in fat and sugar ‘comfort foods.’”

While it can make people feel better in the short term, comfort food serves only as a temporary fix, Selhub warns.

“You find yourself craving more feel-good foods to help fight the stress,” she says. “High amounts of these trans fats and high-sugar foods can further flame inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain, which creates more mental fog and depression.”

Healthy diet, enhanced mood

While your diet can contribute to stress, it may also control how your brain responds to them.

That’s why the goal of clean eating is to eliminate unhealthy “feel-good” food and replace it with natural choices that can actually promote greater brain health.

Studies have found that people who follow the Mediterranean diet, for example – which includes plenty of whole vegetables and fruits, unprocessed grains, fish, and other seafood – have a 25%-35% lower risk of depression compared with those who follow a typical “Western” diet high in processed and refined foods.

One reason that a diet abundant in natural-state foods benefits your brain and mood is that these foods contain high amounts of antioxidants, which have been shown to not only soothe inflammation and oxidative stress but help prevent it in the first place.

A “sweeter” outlook, naturally

If you battle unhealthy cravings as part of your stress, clean eating is a way to break free from your dependence.

Taylor, co-owner of St. Pete Strength and Conditioning in Florida, turned to clean eating when he became more dedicated to his weight-training regimen.

His approach: stick with foods close to their natural state, which helped eliminate high amounts of refined sugar in his diet.

Taylor says he noticed an almost instant change for the better.

“I’m detailed-oriented, I sweat the small stuff, and I get stressed easily. But the clean eating helps me stay more focused and not get sidetracked with distractions.”

Taylor pointed to cutting out sugar, a feeder of inflammation, as the main factor for his improved outlook.

“Without all the excess sugar from processed foods and dairy, I have much less of the mental ups and downs that can happen when faced with daily stress. I’m much better able to go with the flow,” he says.

Another advantage to clean eating is that it can expand your palate, so you’re not always stuck in a food rut.

“Clean eating encourages eating more of the right kind of foods without thinking about low-fat, low-calorie, or low-carb.”

“Clean eating is more about what you can have rather than what you can’t have,” says Rebecca Katz, MS, author of The Healthy Mind Cookbook.

“You’ll discover that when you eliminate a lot of processed ingredients, you’ll add more fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats that can turn into Technicolor meals full of bright greens, reds, and yellows.”

For her part, Erica discovered the many wonders of kale through clean eating.

“I learned that it was such a nutrient-rich food, and there were many ways to use it,” she says. “I use it in my breakfast smoothie, on lunchtime sandwiches, and as a side dish for dinner.”

Keep in mind that clean eating is designed to be flexible, so your healthy efforts will not collapse if you take a day off. If anything, the mental benefits of clean eating make it easier to rebound without guilt or stress.

“Now if I slip up, even over a few days, I’m aware of it and can more easily get back on track,” says Erica. “I don’t stress about it. That’s what’s so great about making positive change – it stays with you.”

Tips to Get Started

Here are some tips for making the move into clean eating:

Begin with breakfast. It’s a smaller meal and easier to prepare. Replace processed cereal with oatmeal, or a smoothie made with almond milk, greens, and frozen fruit.

Plan your meals. Organize and prep your meals for the week over the weekend. Have your fruits and vegetables chopped and stored in a container ready to go. It’s easier to reach into the fridge and grab what you need than to feel overwhelmed trying to prepare an entire meal from scratch.

Make a sweep of your kitchen. Get rid of processed foods lurking in your cupboards, refrigerator, and freezer. “This frees up space for you to add healthier alternatives that make cooking much more efficient,” says Katz.

Examples of “Clean Eating” Foods

The focus of clean eating is to consume more whole foods in their natural state and to avoid heavily processed foods.

When in doubt, read the label. “The ingredient list should be short and recognizable,” says Katz. “If you can’t say them, don’t eat them.”

Avoid anything with chemical-sounding names or phrases like “artificial coloring” and “flavors.” Here are a few examples of food staples that make up clean eating, according to Katz:

  • Healthy fats such as olive oil, grass-fed butter, and coconut oil
  • Fresh fruitsor canned, frozen, or dried fruit with no added sugar
  • Fresh vegetables—or canned or frozen vegetables with no added sauces or salt
  • Nuts like almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and walnuts
  • Organic or vegetarian eggs
  • Unrefined grains, like whole-grain wheat bread and pasta, non-microwave popcorn, steel-cut oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, and whole-wheat flour
  • Canned beans and legumes with little or no added salt (rinsing can reduce sodium by 35%)
  • Plain yogurt
  • Plain nut butters
  • Unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • Organic or grass-fed meat, including beef and chicken
  • Fresh or frozen fish, including Pacific cod, salmon, and tilapia
  • Herbs and spices such as turmeric, basil, rosemary, cinnamon, and ginger

Cooking Tip

How you prepare your food can also help you eat clean. Stick with flash-cook methods like stir-frying and steaming, which lock in more vitamins and minerals. Avoid high-fat cooking techniques, like deep frying or stewing your food in animal or vegetable fats.

A Love Story / 31 Best and Worst Foods For Depression / Friday: At School – Shakespeare Production

God pours out His Love into my Heart by the Holy Spirit.             – Romans 5:5

Your Life
is a Love Story.

Yes.
The Love of God
dwells within us,
and fills our Human Hearts
with Hope
for Tomorrow,
and
ever after.

Even death
has no dominion
over those who Love,
and are Loved
by God.

“The last enemy
that shall be destroyed
is death.”
1 Corinthians 15:26

My Dear Friends,
because of the Miracle
of your Birth,
and the Birth of God’s Love
deep in your Heart,
you are close
to the Lord,
even when afar.
God
will Love you
and Forgive
no matter where,
or who you are.

“Therefore I tell you,
whatever
you ask in Prayer,
believe that you have received it,
and
it will be
yours
.

– 
Mark 11:24

Yes.
Ask
and you shall
receive.

The Bible is filled with ‘Words of Affirmation’ where God verbalizes His love to us.

Whispered
in the Still, Silent Voice
that hovers near
the surface of your Being,
is the Language
of God’s Love.
.
It speaks
from the Divine.
Pure
and Felt,
It reverberates
throughout Time,
immeasurable,
except
by the beat
of your Heart.

The Nobility
of your Spirit
is the Miracle
of the way you are.
It is
Infinite and Everlasting,
for God’s Love
resides in
you.

Such is
the Love of God,
that you could never
embrace it all,
never
comprehend it.

For all of Eternity
we shall wonder
about the Love of God,
and never be able
to fully comprehend it,
for His love is
Infinite.

 “For his steadfast Love
endures forever.”
Psalm 136:1-2

I do not fear death because it’s my doorway to Heaven.                   – 1 Corinthians 15:55

The Sun
rises in your eyes,
and sets
in your Heart.
.
Truth
blossoms in the
whispering wind.
It expresses
the Beautiful vibrancy
that defines Life
and Love.

Leave
what you think
is your home.
Return
to the Nature
from which you came.
Slowly walk among
the Trees
and their leaves.
Listen
to the secrets
whispered
in the wind.

I guard my Heart because it determines the course of my Life.    – Proverbs 4:23

It is nearly
Spring.

A Flower
as fragile
and delicate
as are
we,
will wait patiently
for you.

We are both
deeply Loved
and very, very
Beautiful.

How
do you spell
Love?

It is not
a four letter
word.

Goodnight.

If I don’t stand firmly in my faith, I won’t stand at all.                – Isaiah 7:9

A Detailed Checklist Of 31 Best And Worst Foods For Depression

14 Best Foods For Depression

One of the key factors in regard to improving your mood with foods is consuming the foods which can support Neutrotransmitters. Neutrotransmitters are the brains “messengers” and take control of mood, appetite, energy levels and some other functions within the human body. They are majorly impacted by the foods we eat. The following foods are best foods for depression

  1. Turkey

This is the very first one out on the list of the best foods for depression that we would like to introduce in the entire article today and want you to read about!

If you are looking for an alternative depression treatment, then think of Turkey. Turkey is a lean source protein which is good for combating depression, but turkey also has an advantage which is the availability of a high level of a chemical named tryptophan. This chemical is an amino acid found in chicken, turkey, meat, yogurt, cheese, fish and eggs that may make people tired and sleepy.

  1. Asparagus

Despite this slender stalks may make your urine smell funny, they are rich in folate, which is necessary for keeping the mood calm and your body cool. You can steam them and add to your salads.

  1. Avocados

One of the best foods for depression is avocado. Being rich in glutathione which can block intestinal absorption of certain fats which cause oxidative damage, this creamy fruit also consists of beta-carotene, lutein, folate and vitamin E. Just a single serving (1/4 of an average avocado) contains a lot of B vitamins. Keep in mind that this might technically be a fruit but also considered as a fat, so you should not over use it. Simply slice thinly them to put on sandwiches that will add a new layer of flavor to your plate.

  1. Berries

Berries have the highest level of anthocyanin, an antioxidant which has been linked to different types of positive health results, such as sharper cognition. Nevertheless, all types of berries such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries are all high in vitamin C that can help defeat stress. According to Germanic researchers, berries helped people in a study lower their blood pressure and decrease the levels of cortisol after the course of stress.

  1. Cashews

Nuts, one of good foods for depression, are great snacks because they are a little salty and crunchy. They can cure a lot of cravings. Those people who are trying to lose weight, they are potently satisfying combo of fat and protein. Cashews are a particularly great source of zinc. 1 ounce serving of this nut has 11% percent of your recommended daily amount. It is reported that low level of zinc is associated with both depression and anxiety. Because the human body is impossible to store zinc, it is crucial to take it every day. You can replace other nuts with cashews in order to combat depression. Chop cashews and toss them into a chicken stir-fry.

  1. Chamomile Tea

This may be one of the most recommended soothers for your bedtime. Now there are more reasons to drink chamomile tea more if you are in the mood. A study conducted by researchers of the University of Pennsylvania reported that chamomile can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety symptoms, aside to nerve calming and sleep promoting. The most common and favorite form of this plant is tea. You can pour one cup of boiling water over 2-3 heaping tablespoons of dried chamomile flowers and let it steep for 10 minutes or so. Have a cup every night to calm your mood down.

  1. Chocolate

In addition to having healthy antioxidants, chocolate is a good food for depression because it is strictly linked to the human mood. If consumed in moderation, chocolate can make you feel better. In particular, dark chocolate is thought to help lower blood pressure, which contributes to a feel of calm. It consists of more two important kinds of antioxidants like flavonols and polyphenols than other fruit juices. You could make use of dark chocolate as a snack once per week to maintain a healthy body weight.

  1. Garlic

Similar to many plants, garlic is filled with useful antioxidants. Those chemicals can neutralize free radicals and might decrease or even prevent the damage of free radicals over time. Among garlic’s compounds, allicin linked to the fending off cancer, heart disease, and common cold. As depression and stress weakens the human immune system, you need to use something to back up it and garlic is an ideal example.

  1. Grass-Fed Beef

Grass-fed is one of good foods for depression thanks to antioxidants, which are vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. It is proven to be better than grain-fed beef and does not have added antibiotics, hormones, or any other drug. Whilst it is lower in terms of fat, it is approximately 2-4 times higher in the important compound omega-3s. Despite grass-fed beef is rather pricey, it is still worth your money for decreasing depression.

  1. Green Tea

In addition to the caffeine content, green tea also possesses an amino acid named theanine. According to researchers in the University of Illinois, drinking green tea can help protect against some kinds of cancer and boost brain power effectively, thereby enhancing the performance of mentality. It is recommended to drink 2 cups of green tea per day to reduce the symptoms of depression and stress.

  1. Oat Meal

Because of a complex carbohydrate, oatmeal makes the human brain produce the feel-good chemical named serotonin. This chemical has antioxidant properties and creates a soothing feeling helping people overcome depression, anxiety and stress. Many studies have proven that those children eating oatmeal for breakfast seemed to stay sharper in the morning. Additionally, beta-glucan, a kind of soluble fiber found in oatmeal can enhance greater satiety feeling in compared with other whole grains.

  1. Oranges

Being a powerhouse of vitamin C, oranges also have an extra benefit of being entirely portable. Orange’s tough skin could keep them protected whilst they bring them in your backpack or purse, so you can take advantage of them anywhere to get rid of depression symptoms. Thus, it deserves one of the best foods for depression.

  1. Oysters

If you think that oysters were just good as aphrodisiacs, then you are wrong. They are a powerhouse of zinc. Just six oysters can offer you more than half of the recommended daily amount of this crucial mineral. It is best served on ice with a lemon wedge.

  1. Walnuts

Having pleasantly sweet flavor, walnuts are proven to be one of the best foods for depression. Thanks to alpha-linoleic acid, omega-3 fatty acid along with other polyphenols which have been shown to aid in prevent memory loss, walnuts should be added to your daily menu, especially when you are in a low mood. In order to bring out the benefits of walnuts for your mental health, you can toast them for about 10 minutes, then chop before adding them to salads.

17 Worst Foods For Depression, Stress And Anxiety

As mentioned earlier, simple food choices could make the difference between feeling stable and feeling worse. In this part of the article “Best and worst foods for depression, stress and anxiety”, we will expose some bad foods to avoid when you feel depressed. Check them out below!

  1. Refined Sugar

The first mentioned one among many bad foods for depression is refined sugar. In general, sugar is thought to be linked to an increased likelihood of depression. The reason why refined sugar mat wreck your mood is that it causes the blood sugar level to plummet, causing a sugar hangover which disrupts the mood, depletes the energy. Also, refined sugar is also associated with sleep disorders.

A diet high in refined sugar may increase the levels of inflammation in the body as well as brain. And, inflammation is linked to a higher risk of depression.

  1. Artificial Sweeteners

Actually, aspartame is a not good at all, particularly if you are prone to anxiety and depression. It may block the production of neurotransmitter serotonin – the “happy” hormone within the brain and leads to headaches, mood dips, and insomnia.

  1. Foods With High Pesticides

Those foods grown with heavy pesticide can be bad for your mood as well as well-being. These foods include peaches, strawberries, celery, blueberries, apples, sweet bell peppers, cherries, potatoes, and grapes. It is suggested that if you keep buying these foods, you had better choose organic ones for getting the most of nutritional benefits and least of negative pesticides.

  1. Agave Nectar

Agave is thought as a natural, healthy sweetener, yet that is a myth. According to some experts, agave is not a healthful food because the excess fructose in this food may increase the risk of metabolic syndrome, thereby triggering brain shrinkage and instability of mood as well.

  1. Soda

It is estimated that an average American takes a whopping 600 sodas per year. Those beverages will turn into fat within the body, thereby sending the mood plummeting after an initial rush of glucose.

For a healthy replacement, you could add a little bit of organic fruit juice to the soda water.

  1. Margarine

For many decades, a lot of scientists debated how to define what was better for human beings, butter or margarine. Up to now, the science makes it clear that margarines promote inflammation, which is linked to symptoms of depression. Thus, stay clear from margarine if you want to avoid bad foods for depression.

  1. Processed Pumpkin Seeds

Despite raw pumpkin seeds are healthy, processed ones are not the same. The modern food industry usually coats seeds with the preservative named potassium bromated, blocking iodine from properly being absorbed by the thyroid. In fact, while the thyroid is very important to maintaining positivity and good moods, without appropriate levels of iodine, it could not function properly. According to doctors, the thyroid is considered one of the initial things that psychiatrists check upon assessing an individual with depression.

  1. Caffeine

Stimulants should be avoided if you are looking for the best foods for depression. Caffeine is an underappreciated trigger which may impair your sleep. Sleep deprivation is closely linked to bipolar mood swings as well as mania.

Caffeine may increase anxiety and irritability, not mention to impacting sleeping. It is recommended to avoid caffeine when you are going to bed. Those OTC medications containing pseudoephedrine have noticeable stimulant properties which are similar to caffeine and may trigger the condition of bad mood.

  1. Alcohol

Those people having bipolar disorder and depression should stay away from alcohol, one of worst foods for depression, because it can negatively impact the human mood and interact negatively with some medications like lithium.

  1. Fat

Nutrition experts suggest depressed people limiting their intake of saturated fat as well as trans fat.  It means that they should opt for low-fat dairy products and lean protein upon choosing animal products.

  1. Non-Dairy Creamer

Non-dairy creamer contains partially hydrogenated oils, also known as trans fat, lurking in other ultra-processed foods such as cookies, French fries, mozzarella sticks, and doughnuts. These fats are associated with the impaired blood flow. Reduced blood flow, particularly to the brain is linked to anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. It is reported that those people eating fried foods, high-fat dairy, processed meats and sweetened desserts seem to have a 58% higher risk of anxiety and depression than those following whole food-rich diet.

  1. Pasta

The refined carbohydrates such as white pasta, doughnuts, candy, white bread, and sugary beverages may wreck your own mood by triggering quick spikes in the blood glucose levels. A study conducted by researchers in Columbia University reported that the blood sugar level of a female participant rose after consuming refine grains and sugar, meaning the higher risk of depression.

  1. Tofu

Despite soy is filled of lean protein, it is still a source of trypsin along with protease inhibitors – the enzymes making the digestion of protein difficult. Also, soy is rich in copper, the mineral associated to anxious behaviors and packed with oligosaccharides , which are thought to cause flatulence. That is why eating tofu will make you more anxious, which is not good for depression at all.

  1. Wheat Bran

We all know that wheat bran is rich in fiber, but unfortunately it is considered one of the worst foods for depression due to its notoriously high content of phytic acid. This chemical binds to important mood minerals such as zinc and reduces their absorption. For those anxious people, adequate amount of zinc are particularly important because the deficiency have been shown to induce depression and anxious behavior. To reduce this anti-nutrient in wheat bran, you can soak it before cooking.

  1. Red Wine

Though a glass of beer or vino might temporarily calm anxious mind, it is shown that these happy hours will backfire in the long term. Those people having anxiety disorders who treat themselves with drugs and alcohol seemed to be 5 times more likely to suffer from a dependency issue than those who did not self-medicate.

In the short term, just several drinks of red wine could lead to sleep problems, dehydration and blood sugar swings – all of which you want to avoid when being anxious.

  1. Ketchup

The condiments such as salad dressing or ketchup could be a bad source of high-fructose corn syrup, which, similar to doughnuts and pasta, could lead to anxiety-inducing ups and downs in the blood sugar level. Thus, you should choose low-sugar condiments which do not contain high fructose corn syrup such as hot sauce and barbecue sauce.

  1. Potato Chips

Those potato chips are a favorite snack for many people, especially between winter holidays and football season, indulging in it is not a good option for those with depression. The reason is that these taters are fried up in oils, so they are filled with omega-6 fatty acids which block the brain-building, mood-enhancing omega-3 fatty acids. So, you had better save money as well as your health by making some homemade snacks like microwavable popcorn. In order to have an occasional healthier fix, bake smaller spuds with blue or red skin – the colored skin is jam packed with phytonutrients which benefit your body and mind.

Do these best and worst foods for depression, stress and anxiety surprise you? The connection between diet and depression is very close, but there is no specific diet which has been proven to relieve anxiety and depression. Whilst certain foods or eating plans might not ease your depression symptoms or put you instantly in a happier state, a healthy diet might still help as a part of your treatment. To eat your way to being happier and healthier, you should choose epigenetic foods which promote your wellness, elevate your mood and improve sleep. However, whilst there are good-mood foods, there is still more of that you could do. Create the habit of taking part regularly in physical activities because exercises could enhance your metabolism, boost moods and alleviate tension.

The pursuit of happiness makes us strive for more all the time. And once we’ve accomplished a certain goal that promised great happiness, we are already pursuing the next one.

This kind of attitude focuses our attention on the things we do not have and tricks us into believing that by adding these things to our lives, happiness will emerge. It is a way of thinking that makes it quite difficult to be quite happy in the present moment. Similarly, it can result in greater levels of discontent when we are not able to attain what we desire.

It also shifts our attention far away from the present moment and all the beautiful joys that can be found in it.

The ability to draw happiness from the little things in life also has a lot to do with gratitude. If you are able to center your attention on all the beautiful aspects that are already to be found in your life, you will become a much more grateful person.

“The small things of life were often so much bigger than the great things… The trivial pleasure like cooking, one’s home, little poems especially sad ones, solitary walks, funny things seen and overheard.”
                                                 – Barbara Pym

Being grateful for the little things is a unique skill to not only be content with your Life but also to be less dependent on the outcome of external circumstances.

It marks the first step towards discovering the true source of Happiness which lies within.

Like Rivers of Mercy Never Ceasing / Is Your Electric Blanket Safe? / Friday: At School for Shakespeare Production

Hanging
like a Lantern
in the Sky,
the Sun,
like the Light of Love,
does not deny
what is needed
to rise above the dark
of night,
and give us
sight.

My Dear Friends,
the Sun
never goes down.
It goes around and around.
The Light of the Sun
will
smile upon your Face,
again and again.

The Promise
made by the Sun,
is to shine a Light
upon
YOU.
.
And,
you need to promise,
to shine a Light
upon another Life.
There is always
someone
in need
of
YOU.

With Faith
in the unbroken Circle
that only Time reveals,
YOU
can be Liberated,
by your
Heart.

Each precious Day
you Live,
Life
longs to be
far, far from unknown,
and so very far
from just me.
It longs to be
you and me,
It LOVES to be
we.

Truth
streams down like Rivers of Mercy
never ceasing,

in Blessing the Human Heart,
as we read His Holy Word
and give Praise
to God,
and Worship in His Grace.
.

 By Flaming Words
from far above,
He speaks to the
Heart
of everyone,
in the Language
of Truth,
the Language
of Love.

The path
we follow
may wind through
the valleys
of many
Hearts set adrift.

Let us follow
where He leads.
He knows the meadows
and the mountains.
He knows
the where and the what
we need.

And our need
is simple,
like the Truths
from Above.
We need
Love.

To die
in the Arms of God,
is to be born
in the Warm Embrace
of Pure Love,
and Live
forever and ever.

Goodnight.

“Oh,
I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a Light of
Love.”

Is Your Electric Blanket Safe?
– Mercola.com

click here to read more

Story at-a-glance

  • Although using an electric blanket during the winter season is a good idea, it can actually emit dangerous electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
  • According to the BioInitiative Report, EMFs can affect gene expression, have genotoxic effects, induce stress response, affect immune function and neurology, impact your melatonin production, and promote certain types of cancers.
  • Electric blankets cause a magnetic field that can penetrate about six to seven inches into your body for hours at a time. Studies have linked electric blanket use to increased cases of miscarriages and childhood leukemia.
  • Instead of using an electric blanket, safer alternatives are using flannel sheets or extra blankets, wearing socks or hats, or using a hot water bottle.

By Dr. Mercola

Winter is upon you if you live in the northern hemisphere, and with this challenging economy you are probably interested in lowering your thermostat and conserving energy while still staying warm

An electric blanket seems like a good idea. You can turn the thermostat down at bedtime and stay comfortable throughout the night.

But the central question is: Are they safe?

It’s true — electric blankets are convenient and cost-effective. But it is important to know that they may also be hazardous to your health.

In addition to the fire danger associated with a defective or an old, worn electric blanket, there is also another health risk to consider — the electromagnetic field you’ll be sleeping under for several hours every night..

What Is an Electromagnetic Field?

An electromagnetic field (EMF) is an invisible zone of energy that surrounds electric devices and wiring. EMFs are actually comprised of two fields:

  • An electric field,
  • A magnetic field

The electric field is created by voltage, which determines the force with which the electricity is pushed through wires. Most electric fields can be shielded by the design of the appliance, or physically, by walls or other barriers.

The magnetic field is created by the current, which is the amount of electricity being pushed. Magnetic fields, which are the main cause of health concerns, can travel through most barriers and for long distances, and are difficult to block.

All electromagnetic energy falls somewhere on the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation to microwaves, x-rays, and gamma rays.

ELF fields are generated by household appliances, including electric blankets, and overhead power lines, which have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, such as leukemia.

The Dangers of Electromagnetic Energy to Your Health

When electricity passes through a wire, it creates an electromagnetic field that exerts force on nearby objects, including animals and humans.

At one time, it was believed that low-level magnetic fields were not harmful, but scientists now agree that ELF fields are indeed hazardous to human health. They are now considered “probable carcinogens,” and have been linked to cases of childhood leukemia, lymphoma, and other health conditions. The exact mechanism by which exposure leads to cancer has not been established. But one potential mechanism may be due to ELFs ability to alter the expression of certain genes; turning them on and off at inappropriate times, which may cause them to initiate cell proliferation.

Additionally, the BioInitiative Report, published by an international working group of scientists, researchers, and public health policy professionals, documents serious scientific concerns about the radiation emitted from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of exposure to radio frequencies and electromagnetic fields in daily life.

It concludes that the existing standards for public safety are completely inadequate to protect your health. The report includes studies showing evidence that electromagnetic fields can:

  • Affect gene and protein expression (Transcriptomic and Proteomic Research)
  • Have genotoxic effects – RFR and ELF DNA damage
  • Induce stress response (Stress Proteins)
  • Affect immune function
  • Affect neurology and behavior
  • Cause childhood cancers (Leukemia)
  • Impact melatonin production; Alzheimer’s disease; breast cancer
  • Promote breast cancer (Melatonin links in laboratory and cell studies)

Why Electric Blankets Are a Bigger Threat Than Other Household Appliances

Researchers have concluded that you should not only be aware of the potential harm of low-level magnetic fields, you should also limit your exposure as much as possible. This is especially true for appliances held close to the body, as would be the case with electric blankets.

The magnetic fields given off by various household appliances diminish sharply the farther you are from the appliance. In the case of electric blankets, however, a study conducted by Dr. Nancy Wertheimer in the mid-1980s demonstrated that the reading at any power level (level 1 all the way up to level 9 or 10) was 10 to 20 mG (milliGauss) next to the blanket, and 5 to 10 mG six inches away from it.

These numbers represent the field strength to which you’re exposed when sleeping under an electric blanket. The current is balanced at the center of the blanket, but unbalanced at the outer edges. It is the imbalance that causes a significant magnetic field to be generated.

While there is heated debate as to what EMF level is considered safe, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG, but many experts believe even this level is too high. As you can see, electric blankets are capable of creating a magnetic field anywhere from five to 20 times higher than the EPA’s proposed safe level of exposure. Meanwhile, many scientists warn that the enforced standards for electromagnetic exposures are too lax, and that the safety standards need to be revised in order to protect human health.

Specific Risks Linked to Electric Blanket EMFs

Electric blankets create a magnetic field that penetrates about six to seven inches into your body — for hours at a time. This qualifies as chronic exposure.

Epidemiological studies have linked electric blankets with miscarriages and childhood leukemia.

Data reported in the American Journal of Epidemiologyii  suggests that regular use of an electric blanket may increase breast cancer risk in some women, and according to a 2007 report published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, using electric blankets was associated with a 15 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer than never having used one. The same study also revealed that the use of electric blankets for 20 years or more was associated with 36 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer.

Other studies have shown that the EMFs generated by electric blankets suppress melatonin production. Melatonin is the most important detox agent for your brain and is also an anti-inflammatory. Electromagnetic radiation can make inflammation worse by creating more potent mycotoxins, so reducing inflammation is vital.

Research included in the BioInitiative Report mentioned above has also found links between melatonin disruption and the promotion of breast cancer.iii

Electric Blankets and Pregnancy

This clearly is not a good idea and something that is easily avoided. The unborn fetus is likely the most susceptible to this type of EMF radiation.

Additionally, if you use an electric blanket during early pregnancy, you may increase the risk of miscarriage.

Studies indicate that women who used an electric blanket around the time of conception and during early pregnancy were nearly twice as likely to have a miscarriage than women who did not.

Is There a ‘Risk Free’ Electric Blanket?

In response to EMF concerns, U.S. electric blanket manufacturers now sell blankets that claim to generate no harmful electromagnetic radiation.

Although these “zero magnetic field” blankets reduce or eliminate magnetic fields, they may still generate electric fields.

In my opinion, even minimal exposure poses an unnecessary risk, especially for children, pregnant women, people who are chronically exposed to EMFs from other sources, and those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS).

Safe Alternatives to Your Electric Blanket

    • Flannel sheets
    • An extra blanket
    • Wear socks, or even a hat, to bed
    • A hot water bottle

If you insist on using an electric blanket, turn it on before bedtime and leave the room while it warms your bed. Before you retire for the night, turn off the blanket and unplug it in order to eliminate EMF exposure.

 In Philosophy Class this week:

Royal Raymond Rife

Royal Raymond Rife, born in 1888, was one of the greatest scientific geniuses of the 20th century. He began researching a cure for cancer in 1920, and by 1932 he had isolated the cancer virus. He learned how to destroy it in laboratory cultures and went on to cure cancer in animals. In 1934, he opened a clinic which successfully cured 16 of 16 cases within three months time. Working with some of the most respected researchers in America along with leading doctors from Southern California, he electronically destroyed the cancer virus in patients, allowing their own immune systems to restore health.

In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a special medical research committee to bring terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital to Rife’s San Diego Laboratory and clinic for treatment. The team included doctors and pathologists assigned to examine the patients – if still alive – in 90 days.

After the 90 days of treatment, the committee concluded that 86.5% of the patients had been completely cured. The treatment was then adjusted and the remaining 13.5% of the patients also responded within the next four weeks. The total recovery rate using Rife’s technology was 100%.

Suppression and Ridicule

But by 1939, almost all of these distinguished doctors and scientists were denying that they had ever met Rife. What happened to make so many brilliant men have complete memory lapses? It seems that news of Rife’s miracles with terminal patients had reached other ears. Remember our hypothetical question at the beginning of this report: What would happen if you discovered a potential cure for everything?

Cancer picks us off quietly. By 1960 the casualties from this tiny virus exceeded the carnage of all the wars America ever fought. In 1989, it was estimated that 40% of us will experience cancer at some time in our lives. In Rife’s lifetime, he had witnessed the progress of civilization from horse-and-buggy travel to jet planes. In that same time, he saw the epidemic of cancer increase from 1 in 24 Americans in 1905 to 1 in 3 in 1971 when he died.

One day, the name of Royal Raymond Rife may ascend to its rightful place as a giant of modern medical science. Until that time, his fabulous technology remains available only to the people who have the interest to seek it out. While perfectly legal for veterinarians to use to save the lives of animals, Rife’s brilliant frequency therapy remains taboo to orthodox mainstream medicine because of the continuing threat it poses to the international pharmaceutical medical monopoly that controls the lives – and deaths – of the vast majority of the people on this planet.

There Is Far, Far More To Life Than Living / Lotman Consultation Services / Friday: Half Price Books and SeaQuest Aquarium

Life
has never been truly
understood.
.
Understanding
the Beautiful Phenomenon
that is Life and Living,
means
that we must Blossom
in the Beautiful Morning of our Sun,
Flower
in the fragrant wind,
immerse ourselves in the Joy
of simply Being,
and flow with ease
in the ebb and tide
of the emotions
we stride.

There is far, far more
to Life,
than Living.

Before our Dawn,
was found
forever.

And then
God
touched your Heart,
and promised to Love you
forever and ever.

My Dear Friends,
Life
in itself,
is a Masterpiece.
It is
a musical score,
a Song of Being
that captures the Heart
of the full meaning
of Love.

It is
the Beautiful foliage
of the magnificent Trees,
perfected for tranquil
and pensively performed Music
of the Beautiful Birds,
singing the songs
that take your Heart away
to other Beautiful places,
where we all can Live
captured by Time.

It makes one reflect
upon so many things,
the things and people we see
and one day never shall see again.
It leads us to the fact
that each day,
however ordinary it may seem,
is Beautiful
in its’ own way.

And,
if we gaze at Life
through a fog of Love,
we may envision what Heaven
feels like and sounds like.
.
In each precious Moment
that we feel the presence of Love,
Beauty
becomes so intense,
that Life becomes relevant
and meaningful.
And we are Blessed
by a Noble interpretation
of the Masterpiece
we call
You and Me.

.
As 1 Timothy 1:17 says,
“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, INVISIBLE,
the only wise God,
be Honor and glory for ever and ever.”
.

Consciousness
is something that no one
can see,
or seem to
truly define.

God has created all things
those that can be seen
and those that cannot be seen.

Colossians 1:16 says:
“For by Him were all things created,
that are in Heaven,
and that are in Earth,
VISIBLE and INVISIBLE,
whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by Him,
and for Him.”

My Friends,
all we know for sure
are sensations and thoughts.

We know that we have thoughts,
though few of us know
how our thoughts arise
or how we become
cognizant of them.

Thoughts
arise logically, or illogically,
from memory.
Our thoughts and memories,
of the past
or in the making,
are the same,
in essence.

What becomes self evident
is that our feelings
make us FEEL
ALIVE.
.
And this perception
is very intimate.

It is at the very core
of our BEING.
It is
at the center
of our HEART.

If
we trust our intuition,
this
is the most fundamental
REALITY.

We see a blue sky
during the day,
and the sensation is
unmistakable.

And yet we know,
beyond any shadow of a doubt,
that the blue sky
is non existent!

The entire Cosmos
is a set of
sensations.
We do not know,
and we cannot possibly know,
the cosmos that is out there
as an independent reality.
But we do know
the sensation of it.

We feel sure of
our own ALIVENESS,
because we find it
sensational.

“Feeling the reality of the state sought
and living and acting on that conviction
is the way of all seeming miracles.
All changes of expression
are brought about through a change of feeling.
A change of feeling
is a change of destiny.”
– ​
Neville Goddard

We exist,
but we can never really know any reality
other than our feeling of
EXISTENCE,
and hence our feeling
is the fundamental
REALITY.

Goodnight.

annually.

The Centers for Disease Control
reports that here in the United States,
on average, 3,536 people died from drowning annually
from 2005 to 2014, which equates to 10 deaths each day.
Then there are the thousands of others who suffer swimming pool-related injuries each year.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
reports that an average of 4,900 people
received emergency care for injuries
suffered in a swimming pools or spas each year.

Swimming Pool Drowning Deaths and Kids

It’s an unbelievable statistic: According to the CDC,
drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death
for children between the ages of 1 and 4.
And according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission,
390 deaths a year on average
are attributed to drowning
in a swimming pool or at a spa in the U.S.

My Friends,

We Are But One Moment in Time / Disease Prevention / Friday: Shakespeare Rehearsal at School

We are
but one moment
in Time.

In the Wilderness
of our fragile and Sacred Lives,
are Miraculous conditions that have
fostered Life
and protected us
on this Beautiful blue
Pearl in the
sky.

We live in a World
of very fragile and
incomprehensible
Beauty.

And as we pause
to admire all the Wonder of
a Beautiful Sunset,
or the simplistic elegance
of the pale Moon in flight,
we can feel
our Souls expand
in the Worship of
our Creator,
and the Magnificence
of His Day
and Night.

“Beauty is Truth,
Truth Beauty,’
– that is all
Ye know on Earth,
and all ye need to know
.”
John Keats

It is such Beauty
that can make one cry.  
The Music of the Spheres
can become Worlds of Knowledge
found in all things.
And in the eyes of those
that come to Truly know,
the Light of God’s Wisdom
will glow.

And what
do we leave behind,
if not the Wonder,
then not His way,
if not His Way,
then tears
and fears
and the ways
of wars.

“We live in a Wonderful World Jawaharlal Nehru
that is full of Beauty, charm
and adventure.
There is no end
to the adventures
we can have if only we seek them
with our eyes open.”
Jawaharlal Nehru

.
My Friends,

we are enabled to exist
with precisely what we need,
to give us what we must have
to support our Lives.
.

Let go of your worries and fears,
and Trust in the Lord,
who deeply Loves
YOU,
much, much more
than you shall ever
know.

Our Heavenly Father
has provided what we need.
Our Beautiful Home
spins in the vastness of an Ocean
of deep Space
that is our Universe.
Treasure
all the Blessings
 of your precious Life
forever.
.
And give Thanks
to the One
to whom
we owe everything.

You
are Beautiful.
You,
above all things
on Earth,
are an absolutely amazing
piece of Creation.
You
are a Child of God,
and God
is Love.
And
YOU
are Love.

Love,
My Dear Friends
is the only power
capable of spinning Worlds
into existence.

You
are Blessed
with the Supreme Love and Light
of God
and His Goddess.

I invite you
to read His Holy Word,
which will reveal itself
to YOU
as a precious Moment
in Truth.

Out of Love
He created us.
His Love
is ultimately for those
who have accepted His Truth –
Truth which alone
comes from God.

Goodnight.
.

“To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
power pervading the world;

To fly and find pure Ethereal Substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another Soul and to whisper to another Soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.

To be the eyes of an Eagle,
slope of a mountain;

To be a wave understanding
the influence of the Moon;

To be a Tree
and read the memory of the Leaves.

Dejan Stojanovic

Chronic diseases —including heart disease,stroke, diabetes, and cancer – account for some of the most common health problems in the United States, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Yet many of these chronic diseases are preventable, as they’re linked to poor diet and lifestyle choices including tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, and inadequate physical activity.

The CDC reports some sobering statistics about Americans:

  • Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability.
  • 70% of annual deaths are due to chronic diseases.
  • These preventable conditions not only compromise quality of life, they add to rising health care costs—75% of our health care dollars are devoted to treat these diseases.
  • Among adults ages 20 to 74, diabetes remains the leading cause of kidney failure, blindness, and non-traumatic lower-extremity amputations.

The good news is that you have the power to help prevent chronic disease, as making positive diet and lifestyle changes can help reduce risk.

Eating healthy foods, getting enough exercise, and refraining from tobacco and excessive alcohol use confer numerous health benefits – including possibly preventing the onset of chronic diseases.
