Act Like The Miracle You Are / EMF Radiation From Power Lines / School Calendar

“What we call cultural evolution
is essentially
a constant growing and widening

of the Human
Imagination.

Jacob Bronowski

We
can turn all our Tomorrows
into Flowers,
or
we can turn them into
sorrows.
We
can dwell in the Land
of Love,
or live on the outskirts
of the Village
of reason.
.
We dream
that Love will
last,
never knowing
that Love
is
what we are.
.
Love

never dies.
.

Turn our Tomorrows into Flowers.

There are many
mysteries
in this World.
But they
yield to us
only
a very elementary semblance
of reality.
.
Even in humble everyday
matters,
our Spiritual struggle
continues and evolves.
It grows
by sequential Revelation
in a natural progression
of evolving
contemplation.
.
Yes,
we are Biologically
and Spiritually
related.
.
And,
ALL
things are yours,
as YOU
are parcel of
Creation.
The Beauty
of God’s World
truly belongs in
Spirit
to you,
and to everyone.
.
Yes,
the Beauty of God’s World
belongs to
YOU.
.
.
Everything our Life
touches,
or passes by,
liberates us
from the poverty
of never knowing,
never seeing,
never realizing
the bountiful and Beautiful Gifts
and Blessings
that are all around
us.

You are a Miracle.

“Then I beheld all the work of God,
that a man cannot find out the work
that is done under the sun:

because though a man labor to seek it out,
yet he shall not find it;
yea further;
though a wise man think to know it,
yet shall he not be able to find it.
Ecclesiastes 8:17
.
The invisible Universe
is more real
than the visible one.
This fact,
My Dear Friend,
is far from
new.
.
Aristotle
called Life:
“Spirit
pervading matter.”

The more you
read
the Holy Word
of God,
the more
you will discover
the Truth,
as it emerges
as eminently reasonable.

As we pass through
the shadows of Life’s illusions,
and enter into
the Eternal Light of Truth,
we wield
the Sword of the Spirit
which is the powerful
Word of God,
tempered
in the Hot, Scorching Fire of
His Everlasting
Love.

We must learn
how to use the Sword
of the Holy Spirit.

“The Word of God
is living and active.
Sharper than any double-­edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts
and attitudes of the
Heart.”

Hebrews 4:12

.
We
are impossibly
Miraculous.
The History
of Mankind
is literally
an endless sequence
of Miracles.

You
are a Miracle.
The chances of you
being born
YOU,
are now estimated at
1 in 400 Trillion.
And by comparison,
today
astronomers estimate
there are over 2 Trillion
Galaxies
in all the Universe.
.
ACT
like the Miracle
you are!

Goodnight.

This Beautiful Gift of Life / Tomorrow for Home / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

“Thank you”
men and women of God,
especially our
Pastors, Priests, Reverends, Rabbis and Ministers,
such as the much admired Rev. Donald Graves.
His precious Life
is Healing so many people in Tucson.
His Science of Mind community
brings Light to darkness.

The men and women of God
have given their Lives
to spread the Precious Word of Salvation.
We salute the courage, humility, Love and dedication
of these men and women
who keep alive
Hope.

You have
our sincere appreciation
and Love.

Thank you.

To grasp the full significance
of the wondrous Gift of Life,
is to add value
to it.
For this Beautiful Gift
of Life,
is the Gift
of Love.

And although it is
difficult to comprehend
what Love is,
we know it
when we feel
nothing else.
Love
happens anywhere,
at any time,
and
when we least
expect it.

Where there is Love,
there is
Life.

My Dear Friends,
we have reasons
to be here.
One,
is to learn
who we really are,
and to grow
Spiritually
from knowing.

Another,
is to evolve
toward the understanding
that we are all
one.

God
has given us
the Gift of
each other.
And our Life
at its best,
is a daily unwrapping
of His Present
to each of us.

“The water is wide,
I can’t cross over.

And neither have I
wings to fly.

Give me a boat,
that can carry two.

And boat shall row,
my Love and I.”
James Taylor, D. Grolnick

………    The Gift of each other.

Our Children
quicken to Life
for so short
a Time.
And,
if we are open
and accepting
to all that Life
with them
has to offer,
our Youth
is renewed.

When
we are in Love
with Life,
we are open
to all
it has to offer,
with acceptance
and excitement
and a passion
for Living.

                    A passion for Living.

If you
want to know
the secret
to a happy Life,
watch your Children
at play.
And then,
play with them.
They know
far, far more
about Life
and Living
than we will ever
know.
They will give you
a reason to Live
and a reason to Live happily,
IF
you let them.

What we do
has little real value.
And we
are not even
aware.

What
are you Living for?
Yourself?
And how miserable
has that made you?

Our Journey of Life
can have
a much, much more
fulfilling purpose.

Life
can be simple,
happy
and filled with
Love –
Love so right,
you forget
you are Home.

The Precious Gift
of Life,
is a Gift,
a Gift of
Love.
.

Open it.

Goodnight.

…………………….Open it.

Tomorrow for Home

Our children are born of America’s Freedom.
They are the birthright of Liberty’s Hope.
Our family harbors the fleet of our Nation,
With ships set to sail for Destiny’s Home.

As we hoist sail on the mast of our Dreaming,
And steer our course toward keeping us free,
With no oar in the water or sail bent skyward,
Shall we cross over the deepening sea?

Can we stay the course of our country’s freedom,
If we cannot keep our sight on the shore?
The sea of Tomorrow will billow and swallow
The Nations of people who can do no more.

Without the Vision to cherish our children
Having no courage their cause to put forth,
The Captain won’t sail the ship of our Nation;
He shall never steer us to destiny’s port.

With sails unfurled for the Winds our yearning,
With no greater Love than we show our own,
The Captain won’t cut the ship from her mooring;
He shall never sail her Tomorrow for Home.

The Greatest Reveal of All / Consciousness Lives In Quantum State After Death / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

We are all drawn to the Miraculous.
Oh,
if only we knew.
The Greatest of all Miracles,
is within
me and you.

Life,
given to Life,
forms a Perfect Circle
shaped by fate
in ways we cannot predict
or understand.

We
are so Beautiful and truly Amazing.
Many moments
pass us by in the void
of never being aware,
that WE
were created by
the Beautiful Mind
of God.
And this,
My Friend,
is the Greatest Reveal
of all.

I have watched
the setting Sun
over and over again,
as it brings my Life
back to me,
and takes away
my breath.

And you
may have Life
in all its Splendor,
and in its magnificent Beauty,
in all its True Glory,
restored to you,
in this Life
and the next.

Simply,
be aware.

In the Cathedral of God,
the vast illuminated Sky
is Holy
Mere Words are paltry and weak
to describe infinite Beauty.
Only the Heart
can feel
what God Reveals
on a sunlit evening,
when a fleeting glimpse
of the Beauty of God’s Love
is revealed in this World,
a mere sliver
of His abundant delight
in the Beauty of His Earth.

He delights
in our delight.
He wants us to truly
enjoy
the Bounty of His Love,
and the Beauty of His World,
in the brief moment
we are here.

This Earth
is
a tiny Paradise
in the vast and violent Universe.
Mankind
has been given the opportunity
to live in this Paradise
on Earth.

My Dear Friends,
we have the power
to sustain Life
and allow the creation of our Beautiful World
to benefit every Living Thing.

“One look at Love
and you may see,
it weaves a web over mystery.
All raveled treads can rend apart,
for Hope has a place
in a Lovers Heart.”
Click to play song
– by Enya

Our Human consciousness
can change things
for the benefit of
all.

Our material World,
is temporary and fleeting.
But
God’s Love is Eternal.
It lives within
YOU.
And there
it shall
always abide.
.

To keep Peace in your Soul
and sustain the Natural Harmony around you,
listen to your precious Heart,
and do not awake
from God’s Dream.

The Holy Word of God
has much to say
about the Beauty and Goodness
of the place
He has given
to call
Home.
.

Whenever the setting Sun
brushes across the Horizon
of His Sky,
in a magnificent mystic myriad
of colors, orange and red and beyond,
and lays down the carpet
for moonlight to spread across
the depths of our delight,
we can experience
the stir our
Souls.

 God
shows us
what is precious.
He allows us
to see the Beautiful Love
for which we can only be
grateful.

Goodnight.

“I see trees of green
and red roses too.
I’ll watch them bloom for me and you.
And I think to myself
What a Wonderful World.
Well, I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white.
And the brightness of day
I like the dark.

And I think to myself
what a Wonderful World.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
And also on the faces of people passing by.
I see friends shaking hands saying
How do you do?
They’re really saying I,
I Love you.”
Edgar Yipsel “Yip” Harburg

Physicists Claim that Consciousness Lives

in Quantum State After Death

The Soul and Quantum Physics

click here to read more

I knew the time would soon come when physicists would tackle the survival after physical life question. This article represents an important early step.  Written by Janey Tracey in June 17, 2014, and published online at Outer Places.

.

Does quantum mechanics predict the existence of a spiritual “soul”? Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of life after death.” They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantum mechanics, proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons, possess the properties of both particles and waves. These physicists claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body dichotomy.
.
If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead, then there is an existence after death (speaking in purely physical terms). Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr, former head of the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich, posits that, just as a particle “writes” all of its information on its wave function, the brain is the tangible “floppy disk” on which we save our data, and this data is then “uploaded” into the spiritual quantum field. Continuing with this analogy, when we die the body, or the physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the data on the computer, lives on.

“What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. Which this world is rooted in. In this way, our lives in this plane of existence are encompassed, surrounded, by the afterworld already. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal,” says Dürr.

Dr. Christian Hellwig of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, found evidence that information in our central nervous system is phase encoded, a type of coding that allows multiple pieces of data to occupy the same time. He said, “Our thoughts, our will, our consciousness and our feelings show properties that could be referred to as Spiritual properties.
.
No direct interaction with the known fundamental forces of natural science, such as gravitation, electromagnetic forces, etc. can be detected in the spiritual. On the other hand, however, these spiritual properties correspond exactly to the characteristics that distinguish the extremely puzzling and wondrous phenomena in the quantum world.”

Physicist Professor Robert Jahn of Princeton University concluded that if consciousness can exchange information in both directions with the physical environment, then it can be attributed with the same “molecular binding potential” as physical objects, meaning that it must also follow the tenets of quantum mechanics. Quantum physicist David Bohm, a student and friend of Albert Einstein, was of a similar opinion. He stated, “The results of modern natural sciences only make sense if we assume an inner, uniform, transcendent reality that is based on all external data and facts. The very depth of human consciousness is one of them.”

Love Is Simple and Truly Beautiful / Link Between Migraines and Sodium / Friday: At School for Shakespeare Production Preparation

LOVE
is simple,
and truly Beautiful.

Love
cannot be expressed
in mere words.
But,
we may articulate
the Majesty of Love
using words as simple
as Love is.

 To inspire the Heart,
recognize
the importance of Love
in Life.
Open the windows
that are your eyes.
Open the door
that is your
Heart.

“The greatest Happiness of Life
is the conviction that we are Loved;
Loved for ourselves,
or rather,
Loved in spite of ourselves.”

Victor Hugo

Busy yourself
with the real
purpose of Life
– giving and receiving
unconditional Love,
awakening
and discovering
that
it really does exist.

“And remember
as it was written,
to Love another person
is to see
the Face of God.”

Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

You
can experience
unconditional Love.
Through Loving work,
and Compassion
and tender acts of Kindness,
precious Lives are nurtured
and sustained,
and our lives
are made worth living.

The path
to unconditional Love
is a Spiritual aspiration,
and lies beyond any limitations
in the material Universe.
Such Love
keeps giving
long, long after
you are gone.

True Love,
Love without condition,
lies in the rare moment
you feel accepted, understood, forgiven,
and totally Loved
just the way you are.
In that moment
you feel warm and embraced.
It is the single most Beautiful sensation
you ever experience.
Unconditional Love
is the only healing force
in our Universe.

ONLY
Love lights the way
into Paradise!
Only
Love can move
at the speed of Life.
Living
between your smiles
are the moments
that take
someone’s breath
away.

“The best and most Beautiful things
in this World
cannot be seen or even heard,
but must be felt
with the Heart.”

Helen Keller

If you are lucky enough
to see True Love come your way,
be thankful to God
every day.

We
are the expression
of the unconditional Love
of God.

My Dear Friends,
when your pride
has no where left
to hide,
remember,
from Love
you can never
hide.

If
you want to find
Love,
go where
Love is,
where it has always
been,
in the Heart
of another.

When
we experience unconditional Love,
it fosters our understanding
of the deep Love of God.
But in Truth,
we can never fathom the depth
of God’s Infinite Love
for His children.
(Ephesians 3:19)

You naturally experience
unconditional Joy and Love.
Do not wait
for something good to happen
before you feel Joyful.
Joy
rises from inside you.
Your Heart
naturally feels Love
for yourself,
for Life
and for all of Creation.
Unconditional Love
is Love that you do not
learn.

Navigate past yourself
to find your Spiritual
“Self”,
so you can experience
the unbelievable
Beauty
of unconditional Love.

“In order to be Happy oneself
it is necessary
to make at least one other person
Happy.”

Theodor Reik

Yes,
Love lives
in plain
sight.
Expect nothing
in return for your Love,
and Love
WILL
find you.

This moment
is magical and precious
and will never exist again.
We often forget
that now is the moment we are in,
that the next moment
may never exist.
And if we are Blessed with another moment,
the Joy it brings
will ensue from the way we Live
in this present
moment.

              Love is truly Beautiful.

What we do is truly Heart-felt
in so many ways.

“One word frees us
of all the weight and pain
of Life:
That word is
Love.

Sophocles

My Dear Friends,
to be in Love
with Life,
is to be searching
for your
Soul.

Anything less
than Love,
is a dance
with death.

“Better to have lost and Loved
than never to have Loved
at all.”

Ernest Hemingway

Your passion for Life,
your search for Love,
your compassion
for others,
for ALL of God’s
beautiful Creations,
make Life happen.

Transcend
your self-imposed
limits.

We have all seen
the Truth,
but we keep losing sight of it,
and then,
we have to find it again.
And
we never know,
that Truth
possesses us.
It is
us.

“Where there is Love
there
is Life.”

Mahatma Gandhi

We are all on a journey
to encounter Love,
to find the Ultimate Truth,
UNKNOWING,
so very unaware,
it lies
through the door
of our Faith,
between the covers
of a Book
more widely read
than any other
ever published on
this Earth –
The Holy Bible.

If you wish to see
with your own eyes,
the silent Tribute
to Love,
to the Infinite and Everlasting,
Unconditional Love of God

for you and for me,
go outside tonight
and just look up.

“I’m wearing the smile
you gave me.”

Unknown

It is time
My Friend,
for your day
to begin,
with the rising of the Sun
in your precious Heart.

Living Life
through Love,
is flying high enough
to finally see
where you have been,
and where
you should have been going
all along.

Lay your burden
down.
It was never
really yours.

Goodnight.

Migraine Sufferers Have Higher Concentrations
Of Sodium in their Brains
by M. Fathima
March 16, 2019
PM Research News
click here to read more

A link existing between migraines and the distribution of sodium in the brain has been recently found out by a group of US researchers. The study’s finding could be an essential key that could lead to future treatments for millions of people affected by migraines.

Migraine Sufferers Have Higher Concentrations Of Sodium in their Brains.

Using high-powered magnets at the lab, essentially a high-powered magnetic resonance imaging, the team scanned rats’ brains as they experienced migraines.

‘People suffering from migraines have higher sodium concentrations in their cerebrospinal fluid than those who do not have the condition.
They found that there was increased sodium in the brain stem long before the rats showed any sign of having a migraine, according to the study published in the journal Pain.

“The importance of these findings is that they further emphasize the role of sodium increase early in migraines and help point to the region where migraine symptoms may be starting,” said Michael Harrington director of neurosciences at Huntington Medical Research Institutes – a California-based non-profit organization.

Previous studies have showed that migraine sufferers have significantly higher sodium concentrations in their cerebrospinal fluid than people without the condition.

Scientists have found that a number of different health scenarios seem to trigger migraines including anxiety, stress, exposure to light and hormonal changes.

According to the World Health Organization, a large number of people with headache disorders are not diagnosed and treated – worldwide only 40 per cent of those with migraine are professionally diagnosed.

Besides the painful headache, the condition is also disabling. In the Global Burden of Disease Study, migraine was ranked as the sixth highest cause worldwide of years lost due to disability.

God Counts Every Tear / Processed Meat Linked To Breast Cancer / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Play Preparation)

Dedicated
to our wonderful friend
Dr. Bruce Rodgers.
It is an Honor
to recognize the dedication
and sacrifice
to our Nation
of Dr. Rodgers.
He is
a man much to be
admired.
We Love You!

Through all the years,
and all the tears,
somehow,
compassion survives.

It lives
through the pain
and the fear and frustration
of Life,
sometimes without our knowing
all the
LOVE that exists.

“There is no fear in Love.
But perfect Love
drives out fear.”
1 John 4:18

There may be
no seeming escape,
trapped within our perpetual youth.
We may simply not see,
that God
counts every tear.

Into
the rising darkness,
Pray to God
to let us
see,
as into the slipstream
of Ultimate
Reality,
we encounter
WE.
In the sheer sweep
of destiny,
we may view our
Divinity,
by the Grace of God,
who answers
our Prayer.

We
are so unaware
of other dimensions,
perceived as they are
from narrowly defined
parameters
of what is,
of what can
be.

The Whole of our Being
is defined
by only me
or we,

illusory as it may
be.
But none of these Worlds
is really
our World.

“As you continue
to send out Love,
the energy returns to you
in a regenerating spiral.
As Love accumulates,
it keeps your system in balance
and Harmony.
Love is the tool.
And more Love
is the end product.”
 Sara Paddison

As we navigate
the tumultuous storms
of Life,
we can perceive
a far deeper,
more synoptical view
of all that transpires.

None of these Worlds is really our World.

Through the
dark,
we CAN see
Love shine.
We CAN
savor, and Love in the delight
of the View,
written
in your eyes,
spoken with your
smiles,
in a World
filled with surprise.

My Dear Friends,
your precious Heart
was never empty.
It has always
been filled with
LOVE,
the abundant Love
of God.

“Come with me;
where we go we don’t need roads,
where we stop nobody knows:
For yesterday’s memories,
today’s Love, and tomorrow’s dreams,
just close your eyes…..”
Music by Enya, Roma Ryan and Nicky Ryan
play song

We Human Beings
have achieved the truly
remarkable.
Our progress
across a vast Ocean
of ideas,
compounds itself
with every passing day.
But in the vast arc of cognition,
our real accomplishments may arise
from the smallest spark
of Love,
rising from the fiery sea
of Time.

But,
what is perceived

can endanger the Peace
of our fragile
and very Human
Hearts.

Never letting go
is a definition
of existence.

But,
Time will not remain
and the days
of our precious Lives
will never remain
the same.

As our Worlds
collide
into the rising day,
I Pray
that we may
be aware
that our consciousness
has the potential
to change our Worlds,
yours and mine
.
For the Soul
can sink into
a rising darkness.

We live in a World
filled with distrust.
Trust must be earned
and seems to be
in short supply.

Solomon,
the King and author of
Proverbs,
knew that trust must be
where we start.
.

“Trust in the LORD
with all your Heart
and lean not
on your own understanding.”
Proverbs 3:5

And let us never
forget,
God counts every tear.

Goodnight.

Processed meat ‘linked to breast cancer’

By Alex Therrien Health reporter, BBC News

Regularly eating foods like bacon and sausages may raise the risk of breast cancer, according to researchers.

A review of studies found women who ate high levels of processed meat had a 9% increased risk of the cancer compared with those who ate little of it.

The study backs up previous findings of the World Health Organization, which says processed meats cause cancer.

Experts recommend caution about the findings and say the actual risk for individual women is “very small”.

How reliable are the findings?

This review, which included data on more than a million women, shows a link between processed meat consumption and breast cancer risk, but it’s not clear if the food is actually causing this.

There are also other pitfalls to consider.

The 15 studies used in the analysis had different definitions of the highest consumptions.

For example, one of the UK studies in the review classed high consumption as more than 9g a day – the equivalent of just two or three rashers a week – while in others it was much higher.

The researchers in the majority of these studies noted what people said they ate and followed them up to see which of them developed breast cancer.

But the problem with this is that people who eat different amounts of processed meat may also have other behaviours that might explain the differences in breast cancer risk, such as being more or less healthy in other ways.

What is the risk?

In the UK about 14 out of every 100 women will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.

That means a 9% increase in risk in this population would be expected to translate into roughly one extra case of cancer in every 100 women.

Cancer Research UK estimates that about 23% of breast cancers are preventable.

It estimates that about 8% of cases are caused by being overweight and obese and another 8% by alcohol.

Authors of this study, published in the International Journal of Cancer, say the link they found is only for processed meat, not red meat.

The WHO lists processed meat as carcinogenic, primarily because of evidence linking it to a raised risk of bowel cancer, while it says red meat is “probably carcinogenic”.

What is processed meat?

Processed meat has been modified to either extend its shelf life or change the taste, usually by smoking, curing, or adding salt or preservatives to meat.

This includes bacon, sausages, hot dogs, salami, corned beef, beef jerky and ham.

There are different theories for why it may raise the risk of cancer, including that curing salt may react with protein in the meat to make it carcinogenic.

So should we cut out processed meat?

Lead author Dr Maryam Farvid, of the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in the US, recommends cutting down on the meat rather than eliminating it.

Currently, the NHS recommends eating no more than 70g of red and processed meat a day.

Dr Gunter Kuhnle, associate professor in nutrition and health at the University of Reading, who was not involved in the study, said it was “questionable” whether people should lower their red and processed meat consumption on the back of this study.

He said the actual risk posed by processed meats was “very small” for the individual and more relevant on a population-wide level.

However, he said the study’s findings should be followed up to investigate the links between processed meat and cancer and see whether the associated risk could be reduced, for example through new food production methods.

The Stranger Within Is No More / Reasons to Eat Organic / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Production)

You may think
this Life is yours
alone,
and the night
will never end.

Every precious Life
is a deeply personal story,
an Odyssey of discovery,
and ultimately,
an encounter with the Author,
who reads every
line.

What plays out
in the Story of our Life,

is at the Heart
of our brief journey.

What is written
can become a Wonderful Book,
a Book that advances us
in consciousness,

and takes us from where we were,
to a place of understanding,
a beautiful encounter
with the Purpose
of Life.

             Love is a reflection.

In every precious Life
there is heartache
and pain.
But through the Clouds
and the rain,

we CAN see
Love shine
again.

My Dear Friends,
Love can NEVER hide
if you keep looking
for it.
For God’s Love

abides.
And
you may not be aware,
but His Love

is looking for
YOU.

It is here
and there,
and everywhere.
For God is
Love,
and His Love
is all around,
and to be found
in

YOU.

             A Beautiful Encounter.

“Love isn’t Love
‘Til you give it away.”
Oscar Hammerstein

The Love you
share,
you give
to you.
Love
always becomes

a reflection.
And you are
a reflection
of God’s Love.
Your Love
is reflected
in the eyes
of everyone you
come to
Love.

“And, in the end
The Love you take
is equal to the Love
you make.”
Paul McCartney

 You are
so amazingly beautiful!
So Divine.

YOU
are a Heavenly Masterpiece
of Creation.
Angelic,
Glorious
and Divine.

The Heart of the Universe
is Love Divine.
The Mind of the Universe
is God Divine.
And you,

YOU are
Heart, Soul and Spirit

a Treasure
to cherish
and be Loved by God
above all things on
Earth.

           Lift back the curtain.

Surrender
your fragile Heart.
And to whom
do we surrender?

To God.
And
to everyone.

“Surrender your Heart to God,
turn to Him in Prayer,
and give up your sins – even those you do in secret.
Then you won’t be ashamed;
you will be confident and fearless.
Your troubles will go away
like water beneath a bridge,

and your darkest night
will be brighter than noon.”
Job 13-17

My Dear Friends,
Love
will find you.
It has been searching for you.
Look around.
You will see it
in the eyes of everyone,
and every Living thing
you meet.
This 
is the Love you felt
on the day
of your Child’s birth,
and
on the day
your were born.
.
The Love of
God
is the only thing
that is real,
that truly
exists.

Lift back the curtain
on a secret World
most of us
have no idea exists.
Do so with patience.
A new perspective
will encourage you to engage
the enigma of Life with Love
in a profoundly personal way.

Be unwavering
in the unconventional task
of coming to know
thyself.

The pangs of insecurity,
the disappointments of Life,
that never truly existed,

will dissolve in your mind
and melt in your Heart,

with your Trust
in the Lord our God.

We are part
of an Infinite Whole,
a Chapter

in a Never Ending Story,
that advances us in Consciousness

and takes us from where we were
before we were Created
by God,
to a new place
in understanding
Love.

As Children of God,
we cannot be explained
in simple terms.  
We are Infinitely multifaceted, 
fascinating, uplifting,
and Loving.

At the Heart
of your Story
is Love.
And your Author
is our Creator
– God,
who is Love.

Share a moment one day
amidst the wonder
of the Beautiful grasses
and
Flowers of the field,

immersed in the Beauty
of your Nature and the trees,
and the birds and other
Beautiful Creations.
.
Talk with God about
everything
and nothing,
and you.

There comes a point
in every sincere conversation

when you feel a strong and delightful
connection

to something Life affirming,
when you realize
  you are on the wavelength
of True Reality.
At that moment
of realization about Life,
pause,
and let God
into your precious Heart.
Invite Him in.
Say a Prayer
of Thanksgiving
for Life,
for Love,
for THIS moment.

He is listening
to your every Prayer,
and He is Loving
every moment
you spend with
Him.

There is a Beauty
  in these moments
that defies any explanation.
Later,

  you will come to recognize
the synchronous intensity
of the moment,
a moment you granted
to God.

And the Stranger Within
Is No More.

Goodnight.

   Essential Reasons to Eat Organic Food

Organic food was the only option for thousands of years.  Now, with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and genetically-modified foods, organic is still the best option.  Here are 17 reasons to eat organic food:

  1. Genetically-modified foods were unleashed on the environment and the public by corporations like Monsanto without prior testing to determine their safety.  In other words, eating genetically-modified foods (which most people in in large amounts) is participating in a long-term, uncontrolled experiment. Choose organic to avoid participating in this experiment.
    .
  2. More and more research is coming in about the health threat of genetically-modified food.  The results range from intestinal damage, allergies, liver or pancreatic problems, testicular cellular changes, tumors, and even death in the experimental animals. For more information, read the excellent books by Jeffrey M. Smith Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette. I’ll discuss more of the problems linked with GMOs in upcoming blogs. Eating third-party certified organic foods or those that are guaranteed to be grown from organic seed helps protect you from the health consequences of GMOs.

4 Potential Health Risks of Eating GMO Foods

  1.  Fruits and vegetables are real food, not pesticide factories. Eighteen percent of all genetically-modified seeds (and therefore foods that grow from them) are engineered to produce their own pesticides.  Research shows that these seeds continue producing pesticides inside your body once you’ve eaten the food grown from them! Foods that are actually pesticide factories…no thanks.
    .
  2. They’re free of neurotoxins – toxins that are damaging to brain and nerve cells. A commonly-used class of pesticides called organophosphates was originally developed as a toxic nerve agent during World War I. When there was no longer a need for them in warfare, industry adapted them to kill pests on foods. Many pesticides are still considered neurotoxins.  Learn more about pesticides in The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox Plan.
    .
  3. They’re supportive of growing children’s brains and bodies.  Children’s growing brains and bodies are far more susceptible to toxins than adults.  Choosing organic helps feed their bodies without the exposure to pesticides and genetically-modified organisms, both of which have a relatively short history of use (and therefore safety).
    .
  4. In study after study, research from independent organizations
    consistently shows organic food is higher in nutrients than traditional foods.  Research shows that organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, and the minerals calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium. (For more information, check out The Life Force Diet).
    .
  5. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that pesticides pollute the primary drinking source for half the American population. Organic farming is the best solution to the problem. Buying organic helps reduce pollution in our drinking water.
    .
  6. Organic food is earth-supportive (when big business keeps their hands out of it). Organic food production has been around for thousands of years and is the sustainable choice for the future.  Compare that to modern agricultural practices that are destructive of the environment through widespread use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers and have resulted in drastic environmental damage in many parts of the world.
    .
  7. Organic food choices grown on small-scale organic farms help ensure independent family farmers can create a livelihood. Consider it the domestic version of fair trade.
    .
  8. Most organic food simply tastes better than the pesticide-grown counterparts.
    .
  9. Organic food is not exposed to gas-ripening like some non-organic fruits and vegetables (like bananas).
    .
  10. Organic farms are safer for farm workers. Research at the Harvard School of Public Health found a 70% increase in Parkinson’s disease among people exposed to pesticides. Choosing organic foods means that more people will be able to work on farms without incurring the higher potential health risk of Parkinson’s or other illnesses.
    .
  11. Organic food supports Wildlife Habitats. Even with commonly used amounts of pesticides, wildlife is being harmed by exposure to pesticides.
    .
  12. Eating organic may reduce your cancer risk.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides, and 30% of insecticides potentially cancer-causing.  It is reasonable to think that the rapidly increasing rates of cancer are at least partly linked to the use of these carcinogenic pesticides.
    .
  13. Choosing organic meat lessens your exposure to antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and drugs that find their way into the animals and ultimately into you.
    .
  14. Organic food is tried and tested. By some estimates genetically-modified food makes up 80% of the average person’s food consumption. Genetic modification of food is still experimental. Avoid being part of this wide scale and uncontrolled experiment.
    .
  15. Organic food supports greater biodiversity.  Diversity is fundamental to life on this planet. Genetically-modified and non-organic food is focused on high yield monoculture and is destroying biodiversity.

Perishable and Momentary / Precious Moments / Friday and Monday: Easter Holidays (NO school)

As Rivers
of Time
flow
into Oceans
of Life,
Wisdom and understanding
are imparted in many spheres
of thought.

So much of Life is
illusory
and misunderstood.
It is difficult
to navigate Life
under these circumstances.
And many
never succeed.

It is difficult to navigate Life.

God made us
to be
Eternally Joyful.
And the Holy Bible
is God’s Guidebook
to Joy.
It is
a Divine Prescription
to a Happy Life.

What it prescribes
brings Infinite Joy.

“You lead me in the path of Life;
I experience absolute Joy
in Your Presence;
You always give me sheer delight.”
Psalm 16:11

.
My Dear Friends,
true happiness
can never be achieved
through perishable and momentary
Worldly things.
Eternal Happiness,
unending Joy and Contentment,
is realizing
self and God.

     Choose to observe it and give it LIFE.

Quantum mechanics
states that particles do not assume velocity or position
until they are observed.
There is no existence without
perception
.
The physical world exists
only
as sensory data in the perception of the mind,
not as a substance or a thing
in itself.

“Trust
in the LORD with all your Heart,
and do not lean on your own
understanding.”
Proverbs 3:5

My Friends,
we must bend our fragile minds
to the Will of God
and to the real Nature of His World
to become wiser tomorrow
than we are today.

“Get Wisdom; get insight;
do not forget,
and do not turn away
from the Words of My Mouth.”
Proverbs 4:5 

It is difficult to comprehend
that everything on Earth
will not exist in a definite form
until
it is observed,
until YOU
will it into existence.

Nothing in your Life
will exist,
until YOU
choose to observe it
and give it
Life.

                          Find Beauty in Life.

Our Happiness
is built upon the foundation
of a calm, stable mind
that lives in the present moment
and finds Beauty in Life
at every step.

Living in the moment
is not easy.
Our thoughts can become overwhelmed
by regrets about the past
or anxiety about the future.
These thoughts make it very hard,
if not impossible,
to enjoy the present –
to truly Live
in THIS very precious
moment.

We simply cannot and must not
live in the past,
which we can never alter,
or in a future
that may never exist.

A healthy and positive mental state
which leads to Happiness
MUST include:

Love,
Compassion,
Patience
and Generosity.

Goodnight.

“When consciousness is disengaged from objects,
Liberation from the forms
of the World-containing Space, of Time, and of Law
is attained.”
Franklin Merrell-Wolff

Precious Moments

Life provides us with a few moments,
precious moments,
to capture a reflection of Real Love.
And today I share one of those with you
in the photograph of Scarlett
with one of her many friends.
The student is Katy.
And she is the Child
that brought tears to my eyes
one day
with the softly spoken and gentle words,
“I miss Scarlett”.

Well,
I miss her too.

Our friends,
be they large or small,
children or pets,
wild ducks or even a small spider
hard at work spinning an intricate web,
teach us so much about Love and laughter
and Life.
They teach us to greet each day with Joy,
to have fun and play
and savor the the flavors of Life.
And importantly,
they teach us to be kind.
They are among Life’s greatest teachers.
And the greatest lesson they offer
is to Love one another
unconditionally.

Scarlett,
in her dying breath,
as I held her in my trembling arms,
taught me one last lesson –
that Life is brief
at best.

We need to open up our arms
and never pass by
any living creature
without sharing a moment of Joy,
for Tomorrow may
never
come
again.

 

                  Katy and Scarlett                              sharing a precious moment of Joy.
