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,
let’s take the extra precaution
of having our swimming environments inspected.

Your Happiness Matters Most of All / 8 of the Worst Foods for Your Body / Friday: SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium

Can your eyes find the Sun?

Your happiness
matters
most of all.

When
you take a look
around,
can your eyes find
the Sun,
knowing the day
is not done?

All existence
seems
to fade,
like the dimming
of the Light
when the Sun
takes flight.

But,
as God in our
thoughts
becomes Prayer,
we come to know
deep in our Hearts,
that day
is never done,
and all things,
all thoughts
become One.

       When the Sun takes flight.

As long as
God
dwells in our Lives,
our Lives can be
truly lived.
.
My Friends,
the great Truths
are simple:
hold someone
by the hand,
and let the Light of Life
begin again.

It does not
take much Love
to keep you
warm
night and day.

We can Love
completely,
without complete
understanding.
Love
does that.
.
“Look at this man

So Blessed with inspiration.
Look at this Soul.
Still searching for Salvation.
I don’t know much,
But I know I Love you.
And that may be
all I need to know.”
Cynthia Weil, Tom Snow, Barry Mann
play song

             It does not take much Love.

    My Dear Friends,
a Life
left to chance,
may never
dance.

“I have no desire
to live comfortably,
nor do I wish
to be rich.
To be happy
is to wander freely,
to study the Book
of Nature
with my feet
over its
Leaves.”
Paracelsus

To taste the
Day,
it must be
sweet.
The bitter of Life,
is far too often
tasteless
defeat.

Use your Love
to exhaust
your Hate.

Your happiness matters.

“If
you stare into
the abyss
long enough,
the abyss
stares back at
you.”
Nietzsche

Both
Thomas Edison,
father of recorded sound,
and Alexander Graham Bell,
inventor of the telephone,
stared into the abyss,
and made these discoveries while
researching into the
Spirit World.

Edison wanted to
listen in on the
Spirits.
Television
was invented as a result
of trying to capture psychic influences
on gases fluctuating in front of
a cathode ray tube.

The origin of the television set
was heavily shrouded in
spiritualism and the occult,
writes author Stefan Andriopoulos in his book
Ghostly Apparitions.

The television was intended as an almost
magical box
through which we could watch distant events unfold,
a kind of technological
crystal ball.

 Andriopoulos’s book puts the TV
into a long line of other “optical media”
that go back at least as far as
weird Renaissance experiments
involving technologically-induced
illusions,
such as concave mirrors, magic lanterns,
disorienting walls of smoke, and other
ghostly apparitions”
and “phantasmagoric projections”
created by speciality devices.
.
These were conjuring tricks, sure,
but they relied on sophisticated understandings
of such basic things as light, shadow, and acoustics,
making an audience see –
and believe in
– an illusion.

.
Understanding
the origin of technologies
may help us
understand the allure
and the effect
they have upon our
children.
.
Each new technology
is a whole new World.
And under every Flower there,
a serpent lies
coiled.
.
Goodnight.
.
“Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the Flower;

We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death
Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears”
– William Wordsworth

8 of the Worst Foods for Your Body

Many people think of healthy eating as consuming a certain number of calories per day. But the truth is, it’s not just about how much you eat but the quality of the food you eat, and how safely it’s been produced. Read on for some of the worst foods you can put in your body –
you’ll certainly be surprised by a few!

1. Microwave Popcorn

Workers in microwave popcorn factories have actually developed an extremely rare form of lung cancer from inhaling fumes. If that isn’t enough of a reason to avoid the stuff, here’s another: the lining of the bags contains perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a substance that has been linked to several other forms of cancer and infertility.

Plus, so many microwave popcorns are loaded with bad fats and sodium. Homemade air-popped popcorn can actually be a health food, believe it or not, so stick to that for your next movie night.

 2. Non-Organic Apples

Last year, apples won the dubious honor of being the most pesticide-laden produce. Because they aren’t very resistant to pests, apples tend to get sprayed more. They’re also treated with pesticides to extend their shelf life.  If you’re an apple lover, always, always, always buy organic  – or don’t buy ‘em at all. Your body will thank you!

3. Soda

Several studies have directly linked soda consumption to higher instances of cardiovascular disease, cancer, depression, obesity—you name it. Diet soda isn’t off the hook, either. Here are 9 Disturbing Side Effects of Soda.

4. Chips

Many brands of chips contain unimaginable amounts of sodium and fat—one bag can often be more than a day’s worth. But it’s not just the nutritional concerns to think about here – chips also contain acrylamide, a chemical that comes with an increased risk of several forms of cancer and infertility. You can also find the scary stuff in french fries.

5. Canned Tomatoes

Aside from being far less delicious than the real thing, canned tomatoes have the added “perk” of bisphenol-A (BPA) on the cans’ lining. This is the stuff nightmares are made of: BPA has been linked to fetal abnormalities, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, thyroid issues and even cancer. It’s been banned for use in baby bottles, and overall bans are being considered nationwide. You can get up to 50 mg of the stuff from canned tomatoes; the acidity makes them more difficult to package than most products, so a safe alternative has been difficult to find. Your best bet, though, is to avoid them all together. Stick to fresh tomatoes or, if need be, tomatoes packaged in glass jars.

6. NonOrganic Celery

Celery is one of the dirtiest of all vegetables—the Environmental Working Group has founded dozens upon dozens of different pesticides on the non-organic stuff.  As with apples, go organic or don’t go at all.

7. Milk with Artificial Hormones

Many farmers give their cows artificial hormones so they will produce more milk — good for their bottom line, not so good for our health. These hormones lead to higher rates of another hormone, IGF-1, which is thought to increase instances of cancer in humans. Look for milk that is certified organic, or labelled with either BGH-free or BST-free.

8. Margarine

If margarine didn’t have any food dye in it, it’d be a delightful shade of gray. If that isn’t evidence enough, what is?!  Though margarine is often thought of as a healthier version of butter (there’s no cholesterol, right?) it’s also a wonderfully terrible source of trans fats – stuff that does, indeed, raise your cholesterol. Here’s your excuse to go back to the real stuff – or, of course, olive oil!
