Our Human Heart Is Very Fragile / What Humanity? / Lowest Radiation Cell Phones / Magnesium: The cure to all disease?

“So we fix our eyes
not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen,
since what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is
Eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:18

                            He Lights up the dark.

God
speaks
when He says,
nothing
at all.

Without
saying a thing,
He
Lights up the
dark,
Inflames the Heart
with but a
spark.

Often speaking so
loud
we cannot hear
Him,
for our Blessings
are in a crowd,
and with so many there,
they are
deafeningly loud.

                              He says nothing at all.

The air we
breathe,
the Heart
that beats within,
the time
we have to spend,
and all the Love
that greets
each passing moment,
we
cannot abrogate
or rescind.

“I’ve lost Loved ones in my Life
who never knew
how much I Loved them.

Now,
I live with the regret

that my true feelings for them
never were revealed.”
– Garth Brooks & Kent Blazy

Tomorrow
never comes.
It is already
here,
there,
and everywhere.
The future
is but today,
left undone.

“The dividing line between
past, present, and future
is an Illusion“.
Albert Einstein

My Dear Friends,
it’s warmer
in the Heart
next door.

If you want
to keep your Life,
give it away.

The Cathedral
of the Heart
we cannot comprehend.
But,
you can look for it
in your
Sacred Belief.

“I hope you never
lose your sense of Wonder.

You get your fill to eat,
but always keep that hunger.

May you never take one single breath
for granted.

God forbid Love ever leave you
empty-handed.

I hope you still feel small
when you stand beside the Ocean.

Whenever one door closes,
I hope one more opens.

Promise me that you’ll
give Faith
a fighting chance.

And when you get the choice
to sit it out or dance,

I hope you dance.”

When
you live in fear,
fate furrows
a fatal brow.

“Fear is a hollow darkness
in the future,
that reaches back through time
to rob our Joy now
by belittling the Sovereign Goodness
of God.”
Jonathan Parnell (13 Reasons Not to be Afraid)
pastor of Cities Church Minneapolis–St. Paul

 Man cannot harm us
beyond God’s Gracious Will
for us.
Psalm 118:6; Psalm 56:11

.
Fear not.
God Loves
YOU.

Goodnight.

“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 the Light of Love.

When Life held troubled times
and had me down on my knees,

there’s always been someone there
to come along and comfort me.

A kind word from a stranger, to lend a helping hand,
A phone call from a friend,
just to say
I understand.

And ain’t it kind of funny
at the dark end of the road,

that someone lights the way
with just a single
Ray
of Hope
.”

 Human Heart Is Very Fragile
– by Aftab Alam

What
Humanity?

It’s the Angelic clad.
Slowly we are removing it,
to be glad.
In the green forest I’ve seen the white,
Darkening days
and nights so bright.

What Peace?

‘Tis for Love and Charity,
Resides within, away from the vanity
That kills poverty and builds Humanity.
Come; adore Peace
to cure its infirmity?

Peace is neither sulky nor bulky,
but agile.
Human Heart that we have
is very
fragile.

                           Very fragile.

Magnesium: The cure to all disease?

read more

Some consumers take products for which there is no medical indication at all – it’s intended as “primary prevention” of a medical condition they believe they can avoid through supplement use. Afraid of macular degeneration? Take lutein. Or worried about Alzheimer’s? Grab some ginkgo biloba. No matter your anxiety, there’s a supplement marketed for you.

One supplement with enduring popularity is magnesium.  It cures cancer. And depression. Throw away your inhalers, because it cures asthma too. Read enough online, and you’ll conclude that magnesium is quite possibly the prevention and the cure to all disease.

Does magnesium have medicinal effects when consumed?

In medical and pharmacy practice, it has several demonstrated uses – the most well known are probably as an antacid or laxative. Good old milk of magnesia (MOM) works because magnesium is partially absorbed – enough stays in the bowel, drawing water into the colon and softening and dislodging anything below.  Injectable magnesium, sold as a prescription drug,  allows large doses to be given quickly, and is used for the treatment of preeclampsia (pregnancy-induced hypertension) and eclampsia (the resulting seizures) – it’s well tolerated and better than other drugs.  Magnesium also seems to be effective for treating some forms of arrhythmia, as well as asthma exacerbations. Some types of migrane and cluster headaches also seem to respond to magnesium supplements.

Magnesium really is everywhere in the body – it’s the 4th most abundant mineral. It’s involved in hundreds of different biochemical reactions and enzyme systems, supporting processes like protein synthesis, cell growth, and energy production. It has roles in nerve function, muscle control, and blood pressure. Even blood sugar regulation depends on magnesium.

Boosting magnesium intake through dietary changes.

Helpfully, foods rich in magnesium are already recommended in diets associated with positive health outcomes: Green vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds are all good sources of magnesium.

Brain cancer incidence, cellphone use, and trends data

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety
by Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D.

Hardell and Carlberg (2015) reported that brain tumor rates have been increasing in Sweden based upon the Swedish National Inpatient Registry data.  Hardell and Carlberg (2017) reported that brain tumors of unknown type increased from 2007-2015, especially in the age group 20-39 years of age. According to the authors, “This may be explained by higher risk for brain tumor in subjects with first use of a wireless phone before the age of 20 years taking a reasonable latency period.”

Everywhere I look / Questions for Deep Reflection / Important Dates

                         The allure of the unknown.

There is more
Majesty
in Mystery,
than in
knowing,
more Time
in a moment of
Wonder,
than in certainty,
drawn asunder.

Knowing
possesses innate limitations,
while
never knowing,
contains elements
of the Eternal,
and the allure
of the unknown.

                            We long to comprehend.

Deeply embedded
within our desire
to know,
dwells
a more deeply seated
need,
to accept
the unknown.

Yes,
we long to comprehend
the unfathomable Mysteries
of the Universe.

  But so often
as we look back,
what began with a deep focus,
faded to
black.

                               Everywhere we look.

But,
everywhere we look,
God’s Love
we find.
Victory belongs to the
power
of this Love.
Christ came to bring us
that message.

My Friends,
when our Time
on Earth
is through,
the only thing
that will truly matter,
is that someone Loved
YOU.

         The only thing that will truly matter.

As science and technology
permeate more and more
dimensions unknown,
and our consciousness
opens wide the door
for the “unnatural”
to become more and more
of the “natural”,
our separation from
the Beautiful World of Nature
will widen
evermore.

The Majesty of Mystery
gives us connection
to Life itself.
The reason
is Beautifully
Mysterious.

 “All our knowledge
brings us nearer to our
ignorance
.

And all our ignorance brings us nearer to
death.

But nearer to death,
no nearer to God.

Where is the life,’ he asks,
‘that we have lost in living?’
It is possible, is it not, to lose Life
while you are living it.”
T. S. Elliot

Yesterday, by The Beatles

Interestingly,
a Japanese researcher,
Mr. Emoto,
has studied water crystals
and observed the molecular changes    in water
resulting from our thoughts,               our words
and even our music.
Loving and happy thoughts
form Beautiful crystalline patterns,
and hateful and unhappy thoughts
form distorted crystalline patterns.

Positive thoughts create
positive realities.

Heartbreak Hotel,  by Elvis Presley

The research of Mr. Emoto
indicates that consciousness
permeates all things,
even and especially,
us.

According to H.H. Mitchell
in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the brain and Heart
are composed of 73% water,
the lungs are about 83% water,
the skin 64% water,
muscles and kidneys 79%,
and our bones are 31% water.
read more

Little wonder
that our very fragile,
water born bodies
are highly susceptible
to damage due to
our separation from the positive
and Beautiful World of Nature,
as so many precious lives
fade to
black.

Knowledge,
possesses innate
limitations.

Is has been well established
that Psycho-social and environmental
stress factors contribute to
self-destructive behavior.
And the environment
WE created
is replete with
many causes of
stress.
It seems
that we forgot
what Life is truly
all about.

Suicide rates
are rising at an alarming pace in America,
according to the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The suicide rate went up
24 percent
just between 1999 and 2014,
according to the CDC.

“How excellent
is Thy Loving Kindness, O God!
therefore the children of men
put their Trust under the Shadow of
Thy Wings”
Psalm 36:7

    Connection to Life itself.

My Dear Friends,
have you lost
Loved ones,
as have I,
who never knew
how much you
Loved them?

Why?

The only
in Lonely
is the one
you
never met.

God exists
to show us how to give,
teach us how to live,
and guide us
with His
Love.

So much
of what Mankind
has come to know,
has led
to the dread
of anything more
ever becoming
known.

Yes,
there are limits
to what may
be seen,
what we may
be shown.

“Great
is the Mystery
of Godliness,”

1 Timothy 3:16

My Dear Parents,
precious is the sound
a child hears,
when you say
out of Love,
NO.
This far
you may come
and no farther
.

To know
this sound belongs
to me,
coming through you
from Above,
is to know
another way
you say the word,
Love.

Eternity
lies enfolded within
a Sacred
sigh
of relief,
knowing your child
is safe,
within the sound of your voice,
and Joyfully living
between two beats
of your Heart,
the one past
and the one
to be.

Eternity
lies between
not knowing,
and knowing,
YOU
are
within reach.

Eternity
is in every Moment.

Goodnight.

      Everywhere we look, God’s Love we find.

Questions
for Deep Reflection
from Job 38:5-39

“Where were you when I laid the Earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
 
Who marked off its dimensions?
Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
 

On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone,
while the     morning stars sang together and all the Angels shouted for Joy? 
“Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the Womb
when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,
when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, 
when I said,This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’? 

“Have you ever given orders to the Morning, shown the Dawn its place, 
that it might take the Earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?  The Earth takes shape like clay under a seal; its features stand out like those of a garment. 
The wicked are denied their light, and their upraised arm is broken.
“Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep? 
Have the gates of death been shown to you?
Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?
 

Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the Earth?
Tell me, if you know all this
“What is the way to the abode of Light?
And where does darkness reside?
 

Can you take them to their places?
Do you know the paths to their dwellings?
 

Surely you know, for you were already born! You have lived so many years! 

“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail
which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? 
What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed,
or the place where the east winds are scattered over the Earth?
 

Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, 
to water a land where no one lives, an uninhabited desert,  to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass? 
Does the rain have a Father? Who Fathers the drops of dew? 

From whose Womb comes the ice?
Who gives birth to the frost from the Heaven
when the waters become hard as stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen? 
“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades? Can you loosen Orion’s belt? 

Can you bring forth the Constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs? 

Do you know the Laws of the Heavens?
Can you set up God’s Dominion over the Earth?
 

“Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water? 

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?
Who gives the Ibis wisdom or gives the rooster understanding? 
Who has the Wisdom to count the clouds?
Who can tip over the water jars of the Heavens
 
when the dust becomes hard and the clods of Earth stick together? 
“Do you hunt the prey for the Lioness
and satisfy the hunger of the Lions?
Job 38:5-39

 The only in Lonely is the one you never met.

Nothing is Separate from Anything Else / Truths About Living In an Illusion / Shakespeare – Thursday and Friday

To be In the warm embrace
of a Loving Heart,

and feel God’s Love
all around,
is as near
to Heaven
as one can be

on this Earth.

“When you live
from the Heart,

you begin to touch into
the Universal experience of Love.

LOVE is the source of everything
the fabric which makes up
our very existence.”
Dr. Gail Brenner

The existence of a
Universal Consciousness,
tells us
that nothing is separate
from anything else.

Universal Consciousness
is intelligent, Loving,
all knowing, all powerful, creative
and omnipresent across all dimensions
of space and time.
And so, it is also present
in you
– or more accurately,
it is YOU.

There is no separation between your mind
and the Universal Mind,
or the Unified Field, God, Source, Creator,
the One, Universal Consciousness
or the many names that Humans give
to things we are trying to understand.

Universal Consciousness
is an Infinite, Eternal
ocean of intelligent energy.
The nature of
Universal Consciousness
is your nature.

Everything
and everyone around you,
in it’s essence,
is you.
And we find
this to be true
in studying the DNA
of all living things.

Ever since researchers
sequenced the chimp genome in 2005,
they have known that humans
share about 99% of our DNA with chimpanzees,
making them our closest living relatives.

My Dear Friends,
there aren’t two different people
on Earth,
just Life unfolding.

From the
DNA Learning Center,
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory:

All
living organisms store genetic information
using the same molecules
DNA and RNA.
Written in the genetic code of these molecules
is compelling evidence
of the shared ancestry
of all living things.”

Mice,
breed quickly and ALSO share about
99% of their genes with Humans,
so they have become the animal
model of choice
for large-scale functional studies.

Nothing is separate from anything else.

Only NOW
are we coming to realize,
that we are far, far more
than just Brothers and Sisters.

We truly are
ONE.

And now
we are free,
to let our very Human Hearts
overflow with compassion.
How can you hurt others
when they are
YOU?

Goodnight.

       How can you hurt others when they are YOU?

“Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly.
All your life
You were only waiting
for this moment to arise.
Black bird singing in the dead of night.
Take these sunken eyes
and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting
for this moment
to be free.”
Paul McCartney, John Lennon

                             Truths About Living In an Illusion

                                           by Vernon Layne

Here are common truths
that you’re living in an
ILLUSION:

READ MORE

1. You see the present through your past. Your past plays an important role in your life.  It’s there to teach you what you could have done differently or what you need to continue doing. THAT’S ALL.  It’s not there for wallowing in or condemnation. We fall short of His Glory so it’s important you learn to give yourself a break.
Let go of your past and not become its prisoner then it will be easier for you to put things in its proper perspective.

2. You believe you can control things that are uncontrollable.  Stop trying to control people and situations. One of life’s most important lessons is learning to give up the illusion of control. You may wonder how you suppose to give that up, but the fact is you were never in control. The moment you think you’re in control is the moment you’re out of control.

3. You only see the bad in yourself and others. If you ask someone to list things about themselves most will list liabilities. People have a hard time seeing the good within themselves.  Not finding the good in you makes it impossible to see the good in others.

man living an illusion

4. You believe everything you feel and think. Imagine being judged inaccurately by two people who don’t know you. Believing everything you feel and think is just like listening to two people gossip. Your feelings aren’t facts. Don’t believe everything you think and feel because they can influence you to make unwise decisions. Learn to make decisions from facts and not feeling.

5. You search for fulfillment through things. The only person you can’t run away from is yourself. There’s nothing wrong with trying to get things in life but don’t lose yourself in the process by not understanding why you’re doing it. When the chase for things becomes more important than your family and your health, then it’s a destructive rush that’s causing harm. Most of the time you’re trying to fill a void or block a feeling when you’re searching for fulfillment in things.

6. Your self-worth comes from social media. All your life you wanted to belong and fit in, so you spend a lot of time on social media– yet never quite measuring up. The more likes you get the better you feel. The reality you need to hear and afraid to admit is when you’re not getting those likes you think you should be getting, you feel down almost depressed. Depending on social media to feel relevant is an illusion many people believe.

7. You think your happiness is your mate’s responsibility. It’s not fair to your mate when you expect them to be responsible for your happiness. They’re there to add to your happiness. It’s your responsibility to see that you’re happy. It’s not healthy and it doesn’t work when one partner isn’t responsible for his own feeling, thoughts and actions.  A healthy relationship is when a couple can grow in unity while at the same time growing as individuals, so take ownership of your own happiness.

8. You’re convinced everything supposed to go your way. Self-centeredness is at the core of self-deception. It can create an illusion that you’re right and the world is wrong base on a feeling or an idea. You began to see yourself as a victim. Understand that everyone experiences life challenges and that you’re not the only one. To see things clearly bring your attitude in line with reality.

9.  You think you don’t need help. Most people, myself included, believed at some point in their life that they could do it all by themselves. This kind of thinking doesn’t work very well. The only guarantee you will get is being frustrated and exhausted.

We are here to help and support one another. Your life will be enhanced when you’re able to see people as a gift from God. Take the time and get to know the gifts God have given you by learning to trust others, reaching out to others, and admitting your need for others.

10. You believe you can’t change. It’s important to examine this false belief because it may not be yours. You could have picked it up from your parents. I know this may sound a little harsh but some parents tell their children self-defeating things. Not all illusions come from you. Some are created by others.

11. You think your success is because of the work you’ve done. Don’t become a legend in your own mind. As you begin to experience success in life it’s important to give credit where credit is due. Selfishly claiming what belongs to God is the quickness way to lose it all. Pride usually comes before the fall so give the Glory to God.

12. You feel you’re alone. I call this the ultimate illusion. The next time you’re by yourself look around you. Feel the air. Go outside and watch the squirrels chase each other. Look up and see the clouds move gracefully. God’s presence is all around you. You are never alone.

“Foolish dreamers
live in a world of illusion;
wise realist plant their feet
on the ground

Proverbs 14:18

Every Flower That Is Unfolding / Life Hacks to Help You Lose Weight / Friday: Half Price Books and a Movie (Wonder)

The innate intelligence
of Nature
is far more powerful
and Beautiful

than we can ever
imagine.

Flowers
lift the Spirits
of the Earth.
They sustain Life
with all their
Splendor.

                        They sustain Life.

We can see
every Flower
that is unfolding
as it says
to every Living Thing,
“I Love You”.

And,
as the wind gently whistles
a pale blue sigh
though the lonely leaves
of all the trees,

it plays the music
of Life.

If we listen carefully
we can hear
the wishes of all

Creation
coming True.

          To every Living Thing: “I Love You”.

Beauty
is far more than
what it seems.
The constant
motion of Love,
Beauty begins.
And it never really
changes
its meaning.

Life never really wants
more
than Love asks.
And what does Love
ask?
That you care,
that you share,
that
when you are needed,
you are there.

“Yes,
How many times
must a man look up

before he can see the sky?”
Bob Dylan

As the fingers
of our questions
reach
deep into the pockets
of our minds,
we may find
what we are truly
searching for:
our Love
for
every living thing,
and the Love
of God
in
every living thing,
and in us.

Nothing more
could we ask.

“But ask now the Beasts,
and they shall teach Thee;
and the Fowls of the air,
and they shall tell thee:
Or speak to the Earth,
and it shall teach thee:
and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto Thee.
Who knoweth not in all these
that the Hand of the LORD hath wrought this?
In whose Hand is the Soul
of every living thing,
and the breath of all Mankind.
– Job 12:10

                                 What does Love ask?

Watch the Sun
rise in the
eyes
of one you tell
of all the Love
in your Heart.

Yes,
there is Magic
in the moments
we marry,
that are divorced
of time.

We become
so blind
to the deeper
realities of Life.
The Beautiful Creation
you are
is more surprising
and Mysterious
than the feeble mind
of Mankind can
imagine.

Our transitory existence
goes far beyond
the surface dimensions
of Life.

             God’s Truth is always joined with Love.

My Dear Friends,
Forgiveness,
Compassion
and Hope
can unleash Mysterious
and powerful forces
within.

Yes,
imperfection
is part of
the very fabric
of Human Life.

But,
Divine Perfection
may be found
in the abundance
of God’s Beauty
and Love.
And it is offered
to us in
each
precious moment
we are on
this Earth.

Knowledge
of God’s Truth
is always
joined
with Love.

Divine Perfection is found in the abundance of God’s Beauty.

The energy in Nature
is never lost,
never destroyed,
only transformed.
And
God’s Love
integrates Eternity.
Nothing
is ever lost,
no tear
is ever forgotten,
and no death
is ever
meaningless.

God
is neither beyond us
or outside of us.
He is
within us.
Each one of us
is a Child
of God.

“Do you not know that
YOU

are a Temple of God
and that the Spirit of God
dwells in you?”
1 Corinthians 3:16

Regardless
of fate’s fearless frown,
God’s Light
pours down.

Ultimate reality
is always Mysterious
and unfathomable.
God’s presence
everywhere
and in all things
is beyond
Human comprehension.
God’s Spiritual Presence
is deep within
the World of matter,
which He
created.

Discover
the Beauty,
the meaning
and the Joy
of your existence.

In the cold and lonely moments
of uncertainty,
the Words of our Lord
will warm your Heart
and free your Loving mind.

When shadows pale
the horizon of your Being,
the place to be
is behind your Loving smile,
and deep in your Faith,
trusting in
the patient Love
of your Creator.

Goodnight.

               Beauty is far more than what it seems.

” I come to the Garden alone
While the dew is still on the Roses.
And the Voice I hear falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.

And He walks with me,
and He talks with me
,
And He tells me
I am His own.

And the Joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks,
and the Sound of His Voice

Is so sweet that the birds hush their singing.
And the Melody that He gave to me,
Within my Heart is ringing.

And He walks with me,
and He talks with me
,
And He tells me
I am His own.

And the Joy we share as we tarry there,
None other
has ever known.”
Brad Paisley

“If you want to learn to Love better,
you should start with a friend
who you hate.”

Life Hacks to Help You Lose Weight

By Jeffrey Kopman        read more

Several simple life hacks can make a huge difference. Changing your diet and getting regular exercise will always be the best way to get healthy, but these tricks can help too, and won’t take much time or effort.

Most people make many little mistakes throughout the day that can add up to form really unhealthy habits. What are some simple ways to correct these problems?

* Lack of exposure to a varied temperature, whole populations may be prone to develop diseases like obesity,” researchers at Maastricht University Medical Center in The Netherlands wrote in a study published in Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism earlier this year.

The researchers suggested that regular exposure to mild cold could be a simple way to help people lose weight.

*  You should be drinking lots of water. But the best way to do this and lose weight is to replace other drinks with water.

This cheap and effective trick will eliminate sugary and high calorie drinks and replace them with a healthier alternative, according to a study presented at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society.

“People should drink more water and less sugary, high calorie drinks. It’s a simple way to facilitate weight management,” Brenda Davy, Ph.D., senior author on the study said in a press release. “We found that over the course of 12 weeks, dieters who drank water before meals, three times per day, lost about 5 pounds more than dieters who did not increase their water intake.”

*  People who were given pedometers were more likely to participate in physical activity than those who did not, according to research from The International Association of Applied Psychology.

These devices make it easier to track how much exercise you’re getting and how many more steps you should be taking. Reaching your goals can be made with small adjustments throughout your day, something a pedometer will highlight — instantly.

 *  Using a standing desk for three hours a day will help you burn an extra 144 calories per day, according to a study from the University of Chester in the United Kingdom.

“This is the perfect way for any office-bound worker to achieve the typical New Year’s resolution of wanting to lose weight without changing anything else — how easy is that?” said Dr. John Buckley, Reader of Applied Exercise Science in Health and lead Lecturer for the University’s MSc in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation, in a press release.

* One major cause of the obesity epidemic in America is an inability to control portion sizes. But this easy life hack can help you lose weight without even realizing it.

To make sure your portions are in control, use smaller plates, bowls or glasses. Research shows that people perceive the amount of food they’re eating differently based on the plate size they use.

One cup of food on a small plate looks like more than the same amount of food on a large plate, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

* In addition to changing the size of the plate you eat off of, consider switching the color of the plate as well.

Yes, even the color can affect how much food you’re eating, and either encourage or discourage overeating.

A Cornell University study found that eating food off a plate of contrasting color would help people reduce the amount they are eating. The study called this mind-over-matter practice “critical” for some people’s portion control.

* Here’s one to try right away: Slow down!

 No, don’t slow down your exercise — slow down your eating. When you stuff your face full of food in mere moments, you’re not giving your body a chance to feel full until all the food is gone.

Similar to eating off of smaller plates, slowing down your pace will help you feel full without overeating. Eating too quickly leaves you full of more food than necessary.

Recently, researchers found that eating slowly led to increased fullness ratings in both normal-weight and overweight/obese participants, according to a study from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

 * It’s easy to get in the habit of paying for everything with a debit or credit card, just like it’s easy to get in the habit of eating and ordering too much food.

Paying with cash will serve as a psychological trick to keep your wallet full and your stomach just full enough.

People who pay with cards spent far more at Fast Food Restaurants ($4.50 compared to $7.00) than those who paid with cash, according to data from NerdWallet.

Similarly, people who paid with cash at grocery stores made smarter food choices, partially because they didn’t impulse buy junk food, according to a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research.

“If you want your children
to be intelligent,

read them Fairy Tales.
If you want them to be more intelligent,
read them more
Fairy Tales.”
Albert Einstein

 My eyes were open,
but
might just as well

have been closed.
The air was humming,
lilting with the music
of Laughter,
as the day
seemingly flew away,
and I,
in quiet contemplation
could not deny,
someone laughed and smiled and cried
and their anger died,
it just
passed away.

Then I laughed
and cried.
And in my tears
of Joy
I came to realize,
with every Joyful breath
we take,
we come back to
Life.

                          Back to Life.

Death
does not require
us
to die.
So many
have lived devoid
of feeling alive.
It is a sad reality
we cannot deny.
But,
we knew that,
you and I.

“The summers die
One by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am old
And will be gone.”
Herbert Kretzmer from Les Miserables

To be truly alive,
we must live in
another
Life.
WE
must come to live
with the beat
of another

Heart.

   a wondrous moment that takes your          breath away. . .

Living is not
just taking a breath.
It is
a sigh,
  a wondrous
moment that
takes your breath
away.
It is,
in many ways,

tomorrow
lived
today.

“I don’t believe people are looking
for the meaning of Life
as much as they are looking
for the experience
of being alive.”
– Joseph Campbell

The past
is not in front
of you.
And tomorrow
never comes,
if what
remains of you,

is only
you.

“Let us celebrate Life and living,
for it is sacrilegious
to be ungrateful.
Let us play and be playful,
for it is sacrilegious
to be serious.
Let us celebrate imperfections
and make existence
proud of us,
for tomorrow is
death,
and this is an ode to life.
The anthem of the world.”
Kamand Kojouri

Our memories
dance ever gracefully,
as the Heart
remembers in December
how Love
kept us safe and warm,
when someone held you
tightly

during a Spring
storm.
.
Yes,
the reflection of

Life
is the mirror
of the mind,
but also
the echo

of a Heartbeat.
.
Our Sacred Memories
can bring us
back to Life,
so we can truly
reflect
upon that which
was,
and come to
better understand
what should be.
.
Laughter
is a delicious
Fruit of Love,
exposing
the Light of Life
to
parallel worlds
of logic,
and what is illogical
from the humorous
illusions of Living,
making the Truth
easier to forgive,
easier to see,
and as vibrant and alive
as you
or me.
.

“Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever spinning reel.

As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills
of your mind.”

Marilyn & Alan Bergman, Michel Legrand
.

If what is behind us,
is in front,
then the truth
of what could be

is never
seen.

“Life is fleeting,
like a passing mist.

        It is like trying to catch hold of a breath;
    All vanishes like a vapor;
everything is a great vanity.”
– Ecclesiastes 1:2

Life,
My Dear Friend,
is indeed fleeting,
like the tiny Humming Bird,
hovering briefly,

and then
– the moment flew away.

As you travel
this narrow path,
tread lightly,
and truly live,
Love,
and laugh.

Goodnight.

Our Lives demand that we give a Hoot!

Oscar Wilde “Humanity takes itself
too seriously.

It is the world’s original sin.
If the cave-man had known how to laugh,
History would have been different.”
Oscar Wilde

Your Prism, Not Your Prison / Coming to a War Zone / Classes Resume Tuesday Sept. 5

The colors of every
RAINBOW
are left behind
in the canyons of the
mind,
for your Heart
to own.
Such colors add flavor
the favor of God,
of your Transcendent Being,
like the fragrance
of a Flower
that follows you
into a dream.

In the currency
of reality,
your dreams
can buy you
anything.

                               For your Heart to own.

Moments such as these
allow us to see
that God resides
in everything,
even in the pain
of loss
and suffering,
which guide us to see
that every Blessing
is truly
a Blessing,
that the shade
of a good tree
lets you know
you are worthy
of more
than just the heat
of the Sun.

      God resides in everything.

“Those who have seen
the darkest of nights

truly appreciate
the full Glory of Dawn.”

Lydia Dawn

To go
where Life leads you
and know
that you belong,
that you will
be strong,
that dreams
really do come true
and that sorrow
will not hurt
you,
is not just
a dream.
It is
God’s Wish for
YOU.

“I wish above all things
that thou may prosper
and be in health,
even as thy Soul prosper.”
3 John 2

Just as
the Dawn
of day
hides the dark of night
away,
your sins
disappear,
at the beginning
of every Prayer
to be forgiven.

“This then is the message
which we have heard of Him,
and declare unto you,
that God is Light,
and in Him is NO darkness
at all.”

1 John 1:5

   Each precious moment is a Lifetime.

My Dear Friends,
because
there is no such thing
as time,
a lifetime
can be lived
in a moment,
and each precious moment
is a Lifetime
in Song.

Your smiles
become a Sunrise
in the Hearts
they survey.
Miles and miles
of smiles
will take YOU Home,
to the place
where you
long to be,
to the Heart
of someone to
LOVE.

This planet
is not your prison.
It is your
Prism.

Don’t look back
to what once
was a Heart.

Worlds
of awareness
are waiting for this
moment to be,
waiting with eyes
that are always
longing to see.
They look
for the Love
in you
and me.

These Worlds
are the Children
all around
you see,
and the Child
in YOU
and me.

They look
for something to
Believe in.
They are weary
of the worry
of Worldly ways
and means.
They tire
of looking through eyes
raining tears,
and hearing
cries.

If the song
you’ve been singing,
echoes
through canyons
of doubt,
do not in silence
shout.
Close your eyes
and open your
Heart
and find
you are no longer
blind
standing in the Light
of the Love
of God.

Enchanting
and hauntingly Beautiful
are YOU,
a Creation of God.

Open
you Heart.
and let the World
see you.

Goodnight.

I’m coming
to a war zone
hidden in the wind.

It simplified my

again.

Join me.
On the road
to Happiness!

How Can We Triumphant Be?

Sunset

Dedicated to our much loved Professor of Classics
and Classical Languages –
Professor Harry H. Lacey.
A man dedicated to God, and you and me.
We thank the Lord for the Precious Gift of your Life.
And we thank you for the Gift of your Love.

Thank you Prof Lacey for telling us the Story of our Life. We love you!

How can we triumphant be?
My friends, we are.
The color of your dreams
Is the shade of your child’s eyes.
The highest aspiration of your every dream,

Comes gently from a child of your own,
That surrenders so many smiles,
In sweet and tender sighs.

Sunset 2You are in the Warm Embrace of God,
In the child you have
,
In the child you are.

You are the Prayer, the Promise.
You are all the joy
Of life’s longing to be.

You are the messenger.
You are the message.
Yes, you are all that God
Wants you to be.

CloudsWe of imperfect perfection
Cannot of greater Glory be.
With the Breath of God
To fill our lungs,
And by His Sight,
Able to see.

Yes, the Heart of Heaven
Beats with every tender sigh.
Now we can Triumphant be,
Thank God Almighty
At last we see.
His Heart beats within
Every heart around me,
And my mind is set free.

His Breath, the Fire
Of your very own voice.
His Touch, the Tender Grace
Of your hands,
To
lift those in need
From their knees.

Sunset 4His Embrace, the warmth you feel
In every eye you greet.
His Love, Blessings countless
From Heaven Above.

His Forgiveness, passing through you,
To everyone you meet.
His Joy, born within you,
Discovered on the day of your birth,
That has always been with you.
Sunset 7 As all about we hear

The sound of children’s laughter,
A song in perfect harmony.
With One Breath,

Our life,
His Love bestow.

Sunset 6For those who seek Truth,
Which we cannot define,
Save Words
From what we know Divine.

We children of God
Have been given the right
To neither live or die in vain.
The last breath of another Child,
Gave us His Grace.
And Everlasting,
It shall remain.

How can we Triumphant be?
My friends, we are.

Sunset 7
