Blessings Disguised As YOU / Flies in Infinity-Sky / Friday: Rollerland West / 2018-19 Anderson School Calendar

“It is never too late
to be
who you might have been.”

George Eliot

              There is no end.

We don’t live
for the moment.
We are alive
to live
in
the moment –
this moment,
that may be
all moments
in one.

And this moment
is Beautiful.
No,
not the place,
not this space,
but
YOU,
and YOUR trace
in Time.

      Our dreams can come true.

We don’t live
to dream.
We dream
of truly living.

For Life
is lived
not in living,
but in dreaming
of Life
as it could be
lived,
as if
we live
in a dream,
as if
our dreams
can come true.

  This moment is Beautiful.

When
can Life begin
again?
As Life
unfurls its splendor
we may come to realize
there is no
end,
only the beginning,
over and over
again.

Such is Life
that we cannot
be blinded by the
Truth,
only illumined.

“Let him who would move the World,
first move himself.” 

Socrates

In Life,
all its Blessings
are disguised
as YOU.
And within,
you will find
that there is no
Home,
but
the Heart.
And the knocking
you hear
at the door,
is your precious Heart
beating in Time
with everything you
adore,
everything you implore
to wake again
in the Light
of each new Day
that dawns in your
Dreams,
and longs
to stay
embedded in your
Prayers,
and birthed
by a breathless word
that is whispered
by the Song
of your Life –
the Music
of each moment
you are alive.

“Nature loves courage.
You make the commitment
and Nature will respond to that commitment
by removing impossible obstacles.
Dream the impossible dream
and the world will not grind you under,
it will lift you up.”

Terence McKenna

A breathless word that is whispered.

My Friend,
every day
is Birth Day:
awakening
to a rising Sun
with Hope
in our Hearts.

“We are playing a game.
What you are basically, deep, deep down, far, far in,
is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself.
Reality itself is the fullness of total Joy.
But however, there’s no point of just sustaining this.
Let’s supposes that you were able every night to dream
any dream you wanted to dream.
You would fulfill all your wishes.
And after several nights, you would say
‘well that was pretty great’.
But now let’s have a surprise.
Let’s have a dream which isn’t under control.
Then, you would get more and more adventurous
and finally you would dream where you are
now.” 

Alan Watts

Yes,
every day
is Birth Day.
As if
we are born again,
God
lights the big Candle
in the Sky,
and blows it out
at end of day,
with a wish
for our Tomorrow.

“What lies behind us
and what lies before us
are tiny matters
compared to what lies
within us.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every Star
that shines at night,
brings a ray of Hope
ever so bright
for every one
in need of a Home,
for Hope.

And
the Light of your
Life
can shine just as
bright,
to show the way,
for someone else
in endless night.

There is no Home but the Heart.

My Dear Friend,
it’s not
the Winter wind
that’s cold.
It is knowing
you do not know,
that the World
is warmed
by your Heart.

You
cannot be blinded
by the Light
of day,
only
by the dark
of night,
the night that surrounds us,
is all around us,
day and night.

For the Stars
are not in this sky
at night.
They are in
your eyes,
and they shine
so bright.

Always know
that your Life
is the Light
of someone’s
World.

Goodnight.

.

“O World-ignorance,
Although You have shackled my feet,
I am free.
Although You have chained my hands,
I am free.
Although You have enslaved my body,
I am free.
I am free because
I am not of the body.
I am free because
I am not the body.
I am free because
I am the Soul-Bird
that flies in Infinity-Sky.
I am the Soul-Child
that dreams On the Lap
of the Immortal King Supreme.”
Poem by Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007)

                  For Philosophy this week:  Project Nim

Taken out of his natural environment from birth, Nim was raised and nurtured like a Human child to discover if he could communicate with language. Following Nim’s extraordinary journey through Human society and the enduring impact he makes upon people along the way, this is a biography of an animal we tried to make Human. What we learn about his true nature, and indeed OUR OWN, is comic, revealing and profoundly unsettling

The Dangerous Illusions We Perceive / The Longevity Diet / Sept. 4: Classes Resume

“It is because our own Human existence
is so dependent on the help of others
that our need for Love
lies at the very foundation
of our existence.”

Dalai Lama

                              Accept the Love of God.

Things
are rarely
as they appear
to be.

And
what is hidden,
what is missing,
cannot be focused upon
by the
Human mind.

We often
doubt
what we cannot see,
when up is down,
what is
may not be.

As we journey
through the multiplicity
of Life’s illusions,
our sense of reality
can become distorted.
Some moments
can become mirrored in madness.
Yes,
each year over one million
very precious Souls
are pushed
completely over the brink of sanity.
(click here and look deeply into the eyes of reality)

The illusions
packed into Life
are fomented by
perception and motion,
proximity,
and a myriad of other
dimensions of improbability.

This
has led some to conclude that,
“Life, itself,
may be an
llusion.”

If
the Universe doesn’t exist
when we stop looking at it,
then it is
hung only on the walls
of our perceived
awareness.

From our friends at dailymail.com:
A famous theory in quantum mechanics
argues that a particle’s past behavior
changes
based on what we see.

Now,
scientists have performed a new experiment
proving this theory to be true
on the scale of atoms.

‘It proves that measurement is
everything.
At the quantum level,
reality does not exist

if you are not looking at it,’
said Associate Professor Andrew Truscott.

Despite the apparent weirdness,
the results confirm the validity of
quantum theory.

Quantum theory governs the World of the very small,
and has enabled the development of many technologies
such as LEDs, lasers and computer chips.

But,
SOMETHING
animates all conscious
Beings.
No.
It is not
us.
That is another
very dangerous
ILLUSION.

It is LOVE!

The Love we seek
is reflect in Time.
If we open our eyes
to the illusions
of Life in living,
we may close them again,
and simply Love
in remembering.

L
O
V
E

Looking back,
we may forward see.
God’s Love
was always now,
and will forever be,
the Ever Ebbing Tide
of a deepening, endless Sea.

In each moment
the Love of God
will always be,
here and now,
the Mirror
of each moment to be.
For His Love
is Love,
Infinity.

                 The Love we seek is reflect in Time.

Our mentality is
very fragile and malleable,
much like
the reality
we think we see,
when we take the time
to look.

But,
the illusions we perceive
and desperately try
to understand,
can shatter the Lives
of our very fragile
Children
and ourselves.

As they and we
strive toward pleasing
so many others,
we can come to see
perfection
as the ultimate goal
of Life and living.

           Is that the Moon or ME?

The total focus
is then upon
what is now
“ME”.
And that
is a very dangerous
place to be.
.
My Dear Friends,
everything
but
Love

is illusory.
And there is MUCH evidence
in quantum mechanics
and
the Holy Bible:

All that is in the World
(the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes
and the arrogance produced by
material possessions)

is not from the Father,
but is from the world.”
1 John 2:16
.
Ultimate Reality
is God,
and God is not just the essence of
Love,
HE  IS  LOVE.


“God is Love;
and he that dwelleth in love

dwelleth in God,
and God in him”.
1 John 4:16

.

YOU, too, are beautiful beyond Belief.

If you desire
to guide your precious
Child
toward sanity,
toward TRUTH,
and Life
and JOY,
Love your Child,
simply Love,
and ONLY Love.
.
Yes,
you may come to see
everything else in Life
and on Earth
is an illusion.
.
Those who give up
on Life
have felt abandoned
by the one reality
of Love.
.
If your child
looks into your eyes
and does not see
Love,
no,
it does not
exist.
.
Reality does not exist
if you are not looking at it.
.
EVERYTHING
is in
the Eye and Mind
of the Beholder.

.

Yes,
our need for Love
lies at the very foundation
of our existence.
.
My Precious Friends,
the JOY
you find in sharing
all the Love hidden
in your precious Heart,
can become their reason
for living.
.
The great Truths
are simple.

.
Ultimately,
the further we move
away from God
(Love)
the more endangered
WE
and our Children
become.
.
Let us keep Life
simple.
.
Accept
the Love of God.
And let it flow
through YOU
to everyone you meet.
.
Goodnight.
.

“Love is the fire
that warms our lives
with unparalleled Joy
and Divine Hope.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“God Is Love.”
John affirms that
“God is Love”
( 1 John 4:8 ).
God does not merely Love;
He Is Love.
Everything that God does
flows from his Love.

                        Everything.

“The sun comes up,
it’s a new day dawning.
It’s time to sing
Your song again
Whatever may pass,
and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
when the evening comes.”

Matt Redman – Ten Thousand Reasons

          Eating what nature intended.

From our Friends at:
eco-friendly-africa-travel.com/longevity-diet.html

The longevity diet
is simply eating what nature intended us to,
thus ensuring a healthier and longer life.

Animals in the wild, eating their natural diet, live an average of ten times the number of years it takes them to reach maturity (Chimpanzee’s reach maturity by the time they’re five, and live to about fifty years, for instance).

Meanwhile, most humans’ lifespan is barely five times the number of years it takes to reach maturity.

The Longevity Diet: How long should we be living?

Steve Charter, in Eat More Raw: A guide for health and sustainability, cites Dr Joel Wallach, who emphasises the scientifically accepted view that the genetic potential for longevity in humans suggests we should live to around 120 to 140 years old.

Dr Wallach lists a few more cases to further support this, including Russian Georgians who commonly live to 120 and the Armenians and Ebkanians, where living to 140 is not uncommon.

He cites one Armenian who, from his military records, is thought to have lived to 167 years old, and the Titicaca Indians of south-east Peru who lived to between 120-140 years old. There’s also the case of the Niger chief who died at 126 with all his teeth, and a Syrian in the Guinness Book of Records who fathered 9 children after 80 and went on to live to 133.

Put into context, the average age for Americans was 75.5 years old in 1994. For doctors it was 58. Dr Wallach suggest that these figures suggest that there is great value in treating yourself (through nutritional and lifestyle changes), rather than putting your health in the hands of doctors.

If you think about it logically, the reason there’s such a difference in our lifespan (compared to chimpanzees or those who manage to live to a ripe old age) is that we are not eating our natural diet.

In this article I’ll discuss some of the longest-living tribes and what the commonalities are in terms of their diet and lifestyle, what I term the longevity diet.

“Bad men live that they may eat and drink,
whereas good men eat and drink
that they may live.”

Socrates

                The longevity diet: Diet of the longest-living cultures

John Robbins, in Healthy at 100: The Scientifically Proven Secrets of the World’s Healthiest and Longest-Lived Peoples, describes the lifestyles and dietary patterns of the long-lived cultures of the Abkhasia of Southern Russia, the Vicalbamba Indians of the Ecuadorian Andes and the Hunza of North Pakistan.

He found that the percentage of calories they obtained daily was between 69-73% carbohydrates, 15-18% from fat and 10-13% from protein.

Overall daily calories ranged between 1,700 -1,800, while the Abkhasia ate 90% plant foods and the Vilcabamba and Hunza ate 99% plant foods.

All three ate low amounts of salt, zero sugar or processed food, and had no incidence of obesity and other common diseases.

He also discussed the Okinawa, who, though eating a more animal-based diet, had a similar lifestyle.

I highly encourage you to read this book, or if you need a taste of what it’s about, read this review of Healthy at 100, which includes a preview of the fascinating first chapter.

The longevity diet includes some common denominators. These are:

  • Diet including whole mostly vegan, organic food with minimal animal products and fat.
  • Vitamin D and exercise
  • Strong community values
  • Spirituality and a sense of purpose

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.

~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990

Longevity Diet lesson 1: Whole, organic fresh food

Longevity Diet lesson 2: Vitamin D and exercise

Longevity Diet lesson 3: Strong community values

The Inner Peace of Tranquility / A Saner Way

Life is unpredictable.
It is typically filled with
little Joy
and much sorrow.

Our dreams can simply
disappear.
And then
we ask ourselves,
how can we find
the inner peace
of tranquility,
living with such
uncertainty?

My Dear Friends,
you can find
that there is a place
in you,
where you are quiet and calm
and nothing can disturb you.
But it is difficult
to find the way there.

Help
is available.
Please allow me
to share
some truly valuable resources.

One
of the most valuable
I have discovered
is from
www.wikihow.com/Achieve-Inner-Peace.

The following is from
wikihow.com:

Do you want to achieve the calmness and serenity
that comes with inner peace?
Anyone can!
All you need to do is let go
of the stresses and strains
of daily life
and make time to just
be.
.
Finding inner peace is a process
– so take it
one day at a time.

Quiet your mind.
Sit quietly to free and empty your mind of thought.
Rest frequently.
Find a comfortable spot to unwind, relax
or take a nap.
Being well-rested
is crucial to your mental and emotional well-being.

Keep everything simple.
Inner peace is easier to achieve
when you simplify your life
and your to-do list.
Try not to do everything at once.
You can do anything you want,
but you don’t have to do everything
at once.

Take your time.
Achieving inner peace is a process;
take the time to experience and enjoy
your own personal journey.
Don’t be discouraged if the process takes a while;
there is Beauty in the process
of becoming.

if you are recovering from emotional trauma,
allow yourself the TIME
to experience the process of recovery.
You can achieve inner peace
and live a purposeful, self-directed life
when you take the time to recover
fully.

Tranquility
can be difficult to achieve.
It can take
a great deal of
TIME.
.
But you can
ENJOY traveling down
the path to inner peace.
And,
it will require YOU
to learn much more
than you know.

There is Beauty in the process of becoming.

.
Know Thyself.
this thought, commonly attributed to Socrates,
stems from a more ancient source
and lies at the root of all
philosophy.
.
Know Thyself was written on
the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.
Legend tells that the seven sages of ancient Greece,
philosophers, statesmen and law-givers,
who laid the foundation for western culture,
gathered in Delphi to inscribe “know thyself”
at the entry to its sacred oracle.
The adage subsequently became a touch-stone
for western philosophers,
and extended its reach
as the influence of Greek philosophy expanded.
This site gathers its most profound expressions
and elaborates on their meaning.

The path to inner peace.

Self-knowledge is all-encompassing.
What is learned on one scale of experience
can be applied to all scales.
It is the highest form of knowledge,
surpassing all other knowledge.

Self-knowledge is also timeless,
which means that what is gained in one era,
benefits all subsequent generations.
On this website we have gathered
many expressions of ancient wisdom
that have been articulated by eminent men and women
from all ages, traditions and cultures.

Our compilation reveals the Universal nature
of man’s quest for self-knowledge,
and further shows that no age of mankind
was necessarily any closer or farther
from this quest than any other.

Although we may be technologically more sophisticated
than our ancestors,
the age we inhabit is in the same relationship
as previous eras to this quest.
Therefore, the primary aim of this site
is to benefit from the ancient wisdom
of our ancestors and apply it to our own period.

If you’d like to explore the quest for self-knowledge more deeply, subscribe to our mailing list.
We will send you email updates
on a contemporary attempt at building
an online community that applies
ancient wisdom in modern times.

Or simply read on to learn more
about the Universal challenge of
self-knowledge.

When asked what was the most difficult thing,
Thales replied, “To know thyself.”
When asked what was easiest,
he replied, “To give advice.”

Since Solon (one of the seven sages)
received his education in Egypt,
the principle of Know Thyself
might well predate the Greeks.
At the same time, the Hindus in the east
developed their system of philosophy
before the Greek civilization,
and knowledge of the Self
took a prominent position in their writings.
(Read more about the history of Know Thyself)

Wherever and whenever the adage originated,
Know Thyself was universally adopted and placed
at the foundation of knowledge,
the corner stone on which the temples of philosophy
should be erected.

“The essence of knowledge is self-knowledge,”
claimed the Greek philosopher Plato.
Centuries before him, the Hindu Upanishads confirmed,
“Enquiry into the truth of the Self is knowledge.”

Leagues away and centuries later,
the Persian poet Rumi wondered,
“Who am I in the midst of all this thought traffic?”
and the American poet Walt Whitman celebrated his Self,
“a simple, separate person.”

Know Thyself through time

This two-word imperative traveled from antiquity
and throughout history to the present day.
Like a golden thread in a multicolored fabric,
Know Thyself wove its course through races and cultures, through religious and secular traditions, spanning spiritual and scientific teachings and appearing in art and literature.

Indeed, the ancient adage was declared
in almost every medium on every continent and in every era.

Know thyself has often been a corner stone
rejected.

“Can one know oneself”
wondered the French poetess George Sand.
Is one ever somebody?
“When will I ever see that Am that I Am?”
lamented the poet Rumi.

Scores of poets and philosophers
dedicated their lives to inquiring about the Self,
seeking its elusive mysteries, digging deep to unearth
that hidden stone without which all construction would be futile.
Some attained remarkable results,
attested to by the legacy of their works.
Others never found an end to their quest.
“I have an inner self of which I was ignorant,”
confesses the Bohemian – Austrian poet Rilke in his diary,
while the ninety-year-old art-historian Bernard Berenson
tells a different story:

Yet,
who is the real I,
where does he hide from ME?

I know who he is not,
but how and what and if at all HE is,
I have never discovered
although for more than seventy years
I have been looking for him.

It is the sincerity of such remarks as Berenson’s
that touch the reader and direct his attention inwards,
asking himself the very questions
these authors posed in their times.

Know Thyself – the essence of knowledge

If the essence of knowledge is self-knowledge,
then this site is an elementary door
to all those in pursuit of this wisdom.
Within these pages and posts are compilations of sayings on
Know Thyself,
the fruition of many hours of research by several individuals.
The quotations compiled are at the reader’s disposal.

Profound sayings on Know Thyself invite
contemplation.

They profess that Truth stands the test of time,
bypassing the ages and connecting us with the authors
who expressed them.
They spark our curiosity to learn more about the men and women who struggled before us, who strove in their times to find a firm foundation of truth,
as we do today.

They prove timelessly relevant and open doors into further inquiry of our true nature.
They confirm that, despite the passage of millennia, man’s struggles have essentially remained the same: man is, and always has been, a being in search of truth and identity.

Moreover, expressions of self-knowledge call us to action.
“‘Know Thyself was written over the portal of the antique world,”
said the Irish writer Oscar Wilde
more than two thousand years after the seven sages inscribed it on the forecourt of their oracle.
“Over the portal of the new world,
Be Thyself’
shall be written.”

Socrates on Know Thyself

The only true wisdom
is in knowing you know
nothing.

“Wisdom begins with wonder,” said Socrates.
Through dialogue, he led his audience to passionate inquiry
of existence and identity.

His speech maintained a humble tone, claiming,
to the surprise of his listeners,
that he knew nothing.
In his mind,
one could not know anything without knowing one’s self.

Thus, the Seven Sages of Greece,
who had inscribed know thyself in the forecourt
of the Delphic oracle a few generations before Socrates,
had challenged all subsequent philosophers to attain self-knowledge before knowing anything else.
Socrates embraced this ancient challenge humbly:

I am not yet able, as the Delphic inscription has it, to know myself; so it seems to me ridiculous, when I do not yet know that, to investigate irrelevant things.

Care first about the greatest perfection of the Soul.

“What I want to discover at present,”
said Socrates,
“is the art which devotes its attention
to precision, exactness, and the fullest
truth.”

His philosophical inquiry was, therefore,
dedicated to truth,
foremost the truth about himself.
By publicly admitting his self-ignorance,
he made his audience aware of their own.

My Dear Friends,
there will be storms to face,
and sometimes tragedies.
But with Faith in our Loving God
and with trust in His Divine help,
we can confidently say,
“It will be well with my Soul.”

Goodnight.

A Saner Way

If we were to search throughout the history of human existence, in every nook and cranny on Planet Earth, we would not find one perfectly sane mind. Some form and degree of madness (in both senses of the word) is and has always been a pandemic disease among our species, from which no one has been immune, or has ever been known to fully recover.

And yet, despite the monumental ramifications of this astounding fact, it is rarely noted by even the most serious thinkers. It seems that we are unwilling to experience the inevitable humbling that must come with admitting, even to ourselves, that as a species, we human beings too often think, feel and behave as though we were not in our right minds.

Until we lift the veil of denial that blinds us to this premise, we will continue to go about our lives in utter confusion as to why we do the crazy things we do. But when we admit to ourselves, and one another, that the reason we behave as though we are mad is because we are, our confusion disappears.

We understand why we choose, of our own free will, to sacrifice clean air, water and food essential for our survival for petty pleasures that are too embarrassing to list and are sure to be the death of us; why we hide from one another behind a lifetime of disguises and lies; why we settle our disputes by fighting people we do not know, under orders from others we do not know, in defense of what we do not know is so; and why the demons of depression, obsession, repression, anxiety, guilt, apathy, hate and jealousy haunt our days and nights.

The many symptoms of our shared illness are easily seen on any street corner, in homes, schools, work places, courtrooms or anywhere else human behavior is on display.

But the most serious is our seeming obsession with some form of violence. What greater proof that the state of our minds is off-kilter than the fact that we commit, condone and applaud gruesome acts of violence, on a daily basis… from slaughterhouses and laboratories to war zones? What else, but mental illness, would explain why Spiritual beings, capable of reason and compassion, choose cruelty and violence instead?

Evolving beyond our lust for violence is the essential first step toward our desperately-needed cure. Only by rising above our willingness to terrorize, be terrorized by or watch anyone else terrify or be terrified by anyone else, will we, for the first time in our history, feel safe enough to lift the veil that hides our saner selves. When we do, we will discover that although we are surely mad, we are not only mad.

Each of us is empowered with a reasonable mind and a compassionate heart… the golden pillars that frame the pathway to a saner way of living.

When we embark on that pathway, we come face to face with veganism, which is non-violence in action. The concept, as simple as it is profound, is that the violent, unbelievably cruel custom of enslaving, torturing and killing our fellow earthlings must and will end when we stop supporting it, and we will do so when we see the innocent victims for who they really are… mysterious beings like us, who feel pain and Love life as we do, and have done us no harm.

When we open our minds to reason and compassion, we will see with saner eyes, that their precious bodies are not ours to bend and break to our will for the sake of our pleasure, comfort, convenience or any other excuse our unreasonable, apathetic thinking can conjure up.

Without veganism, we will remain trapped in our madness.

With it, we will be the sanest we have ever been.

 Beings like us, who feel pain and Love life as we do.

In The Fertile Fields / Reduce Blood Pressure Naturally / Friday: Engineering Week at the Museum of Science & Hist.

In the fertile fields
of our thoughts,
our feelings
and our dreams,

Flowers

have been steadily
growing,
watered by tears
still flowing,
over the graves
of those who left
unknowing,
how very much
we Loved
them.

     Flowers have been steadily growing.

When I
consider all the Love
I have known,
I am brought to
tearful appreciation.

In the chilly hours
of uncertainty,
old memories
can burn,
and leave one
to yearn.

It is then
we need to remember,
the Door never
closes,
our fear of Death never
discloses,
that we are older
than our fears,
and
younger than our
years,
that Love
is always just a heartbeat away –
the Heart
that beats within
another,
for you.

“Just like a Flower
that can shatter a stone,
the same can apply to Love
that can shatter
a hardened and fearful
Heart.”

Debra Esterline

We appear to be
separated
by a common
destiny,
but the material
plane of illusion
only reflects
you and me.

Many decisions
seem to be based
more and more
on emotion,
rather than thought
and reason,
and Prayer
and
FAITH.

Our emotions are,
often,
inadequate for dealing with
the stress
induced by superficial
and illusory
expectations
and constraints.

Yes,
we do unreasonable
and dangerous things.
Unbelievably,
we teach to a
test,
and not
to the Heart.

             The material plane of illusion.

My Dear Friends,
it does not matter
what a child has
learned,
if that precious Child
abandons all Hope.

Nothing learned
will matter,
then.

As the world evolves
to become more complex
and irrational,
we fail to realize
how very fragile we are
and dependent
upon complex interactions.

We become
more and more ignorant
about what is truly happening.
We know next to nothing
about dependency,
or each other.

Rarely,
have we appreciated
our ignorance.

As our lack of awareness,
remains unchallenged,
we stagnate
in the infancy of understanding,
and do not know,
that we do not know,
the answers.

Nobody really knows.

But,
the answers

are there.

Awareness of ignorance is the beginning of Wisdom.                    – Socrates

From every moment,
and from this moment on,
we have been
truly Blessed.

Within
the folds and flow
of fervent Prayer,
lies
the Sweet Bright Body
of Truth.

Brightly shinning,
the Vibrancy of the
Word of God
leaves the colors
of lessor words,
to fade
without a sound.

The Sweet Bright Body of Truth.

We cannot
depend
upon our judgement
alone.
We
are only
Human.

God
is with you,
and within.

Place your
Trust
where it
belongs.

“Likewise
the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:

for we know not
what we should pray for

as we ought:
but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us

with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
Romans 8:26

May God Bless you
and Abide with you
on your inner Journey,
through which we move
from sound to silence,
from plurality to unity,
and from the imperfections
of ourselves and our World around us,
to the Beautiful Presence
of the Divine within.

Goodnight.

12 ways to reduce your blood pressure naturally
By
Chris Woollams
(Former Oxford University Biochemist
and founder of CANCERactive)

January 15, 2018

Do not smoke – there’s clear research showing this puts up blood pressure
Don’t be overweight – research shows that a controlled weight loss program reduces blood pressure. Your waistline size is also linked directly to blood pressure!

Take aerobic exercise – run, walk, jog, swim. Regular daily exercise for 45 minutes where you get out of breath is what’s required.

Avoid Stress – Stress has a devastating effect on blood pressure. Pinpoint your stress triggers, and try to cut those people and things out of your life. Make time to relax and calm down. Plan your week better, include times when you work, times when you relax, times when you are enjoying other interests.

Eat a Rainbow Diet – people who stick most closely to the Rainbow Diet avoid 11 chronic illnesses that beset the Western World – one being high blood pressure. Most notable factors are:

Avoid salt – higher sodium levels in the body are linked to higher blood pressure. You should cut foods such as Chinese meals, sausages, bacon, dried meats, salted nuts and crisps. You should focus on potassium-rich foods (avocado, banana, spinach, sweet potato, apricots, pomegranate) and magnesium-rich foods (almonds, figs, spinach, dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds). Eat fresh, not processed or packaged foods.

Eat more colorful vegetablesGlutathione in vegetables and fruits reduces blood pressure; Beetroot, for example, has been shown to reduce blood pressure levels by 5 points, as it contains nitrate which converts to nitric oxide, which dilates arteries. Watermelon contains citrulline and does the same; arginine is found in pumpkin seeds and pulses and reduces blood pressure. Other nitrate containing foods include green leafy vegetables, celery, fennel and broccoli.

Eat more soluble fibre foodsoats, barley, nuts, seeds and legumes (pulses) are the favorite foods of good gut bacteria and their consumption is linked to lowered blood sugar, lowered estrogen levels and lowered blood pressure.

Eat more Mediterranean foodsExtra Virgin Olive Oil, oily fish, pomegranate, flaxseed, garlic, onions – all these have proven benefits in reducing blood pressure.

Enjoy Sunshine – We all know you increase blood levels of vitamin D if you lie in the sunshine. But did you know our levels of serotonin increase and that generates happy hormones, cutting stress, and nitric oxide reducing blood pressure.

Caffeine – think coffee increases your blood pressure? Actually, the jury is out. In some people it does; in regular drinkers it doesn’t seem to.

Simplicity is a State Of Saving Grace / Medicinal Stevia / Museum of the Americas

This tells you how incomprehensible the future is.

This tells you just how incomprehensible life is.

With drug and alcohol addiction and drop-out and suicide rates
high and climbing higher, we must ask ourselves,
what is wrong?

Over the past 60 years, the overall rate of suicide among adolescents has tripled, making it the third leading cause of death among 15 to 24 year olds and the second leading cause of death among college students. (read more) The unbelievable statistics seem to be in a race with our egos and our ignorance and our apathy. Where do we look for answers?
Perhaps, if we look intently into the mirror of our mind, our thoughtful reflections of the highly disturbing complexity of the world we created can lead us back in time, toward the simple solution we always knew, toward the simplicity of our youth. Perhaps we can come to understand what our children have always known, should we take the time to ask.

The greatest truths are the simplest:
so likewise are the greatest men.
~ Augustus William Hare

SIMPLICITY
Beauty, Purity, Clarity, Love
A State of Grace

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Oliver Wendell Holmes

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.                                   – Oliver Wendell Holmes

Simplicity is not just without,
It is also within.
It is not just a straight line,
It’s a short line.
And not a dollar,
But a dime.

Not wanting something is as good as possessing it. - Donald Horban

Not wanting something is as good as possessing it.                                       Donald Horban

It lies not in the answer,
But in the question.
It is not a problem,
It lacks the reason
To have one.

Simplicity,
my friend,
Is not a house,
But a tree.

When life is too busy,
We do not take time to Nourish Spirit and Soul.

Sunset A

The world surrounds us each day with its perfections.

Simplicity is not the stars in your eyes,
But the beautiful setting
Of the one star that is already our own.
It is not a stadium,
But a simple vacant lot.
It’s not about the future,
For it lies in the past.
It’s not about hate and getting even,
It’s about Love and forgiveness.

“God is infinitely simple.”
St. Thomas Aquinas

Folks, this world we created,
Our relationships, technology, schools, expectations,
Our thoughts about them,
Are too complex!
And dropping out with drugs, alcohol and suicide
Is simply – a way out.
They seemingly exist to help cope
With all the pain, the confusion
And the interminable suffering.
They evolve into
A “pull the plug to stop the pain”
Coping strategy.
And they become the ultimate
“Simplicity”.

Beware the barrenness of a busy life. - Socrates

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.                 – Socrates

The cries
Can be heard and felt.
The world
Of our children
Is not our world.
It is different,
Much, much more complex And not comprehensible
To them or us.
But to help,
We must get a grip
On what it is
We are dealing with.
And no, it is not simple.
Or is it?

Simplicity is no, not always yes.
It is a lighter shade of serious.
It is laughter and humor.
It is seeing that life is really hilarious.
It is a simple Prayer of thanksgiving.

Though we think the world is imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. - Robert Brault

Though we think the world is imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. – Robert Brault

It is slow cooking,
Not fast food.
It is honesty,
Warmly blended
With compassion.
It is a smile with a chuckle, And not always an answer.

It’s interest in the little things – The setting sun, Nature, The little bug crawling out
Of your glass of tea,
The stupid thing I did
Last week,
The funny look on your face When I just stared at you, Remembering how happy You were as a small child.

It’s throwing your homework into the trash can,
Because you already spent all day in school,
And dad doesn’t remember anything about Algebra,
And doesn’t want to earn another grade.

It’s long walks in the park,
Singing a silly song,
Skipping a rock across the water
And having nothing, absolutely nothing to do.

Mary Alice & dog Trips Fall 2013 104

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.                                         ~Lin Yutang

It’s a new puppy,
Yes, a pound puppy,
Old sneakers and faded jeans No one else would want to wear. It’s a smile every time your seen And something funny to say, Never anything mean.

Simplicity drives an older car That once parked
At the drive-in movie.
Simple is thin, exhausted, Smiling and on a budget
So small that it doesn’t exist.
As Philip Wylie says,
“Material blessings, when they pay beyond the category of need, are weirdly fruitful of headache.”

Simplicity is a theme
In the Christian religion.
One aspect of simplicity
Is often referred to as elegance.

The goal of simplicity
Is not to make life free of problems,
But to give ordinary life
Depth and value that comes
From cultivating the Spirit.

Nothing lasts forever.
But simple things generally last
A long time,
Including a simple life.
Why?

Crafting a simple lifestyle helps people gain control over their life and is a recipe for good, long, quality living. Lifestyle simplicity offers a practicle down-to-earth philosophy of life that values caring for the soul or spirit. Lifestyle simplicity helps us achieve our goals and reach an inner harmony, peace and a state of grace.

A simple lifestyle helps people gain control over their life. It is a recipe for good, long, quality living. It offers a practical down-to-earth philosophy of life that values caring for the soul and the spirit. It enables us reach an inner harmony, peace of mind and a state of grace.

The simple life is easy, relaxed, Happy
And sounds like the laughter
Of children at play.
It’s black and white,
Not many shades of gray.
It’s a refusal to accept
What cannot be yours.

Tree politically correct

I like to walk about among the beautiful things that adorn the world; but private wealth I should decline, or any sort of personal possessions, because they would take away my liberty. ~  George Santayana

And the truth is also simple.
It admits when we are wrong
And are no longer in the game.
It tells me our children are at risk And it’s time for a change.

In its essence,
Simplicity is about knowing,
That someone loves you above all things on earth,
Beyond all measure
And without end,
And that nothing else matters.

Simplicity is knowing,
Bent to the will of understanding – That life is simply Love.
That the most complicated thing
A child should do
Is search for a smile on your face – And find one.
Knowing that when one wakes
From a dream,
Life will be complete.

It is knowing that you are one with the earth,
That the Love of God flows through you,
Through your thoughts,
Through your speech
And through your deeds
To all others.

Life is amazingly good when it's simple and amazingly simple when it's good. - Terri Guillemets

Life is amazingly good when it’s simple and amazingly simple when it’s good.                – Terri Guillemets

It is seeing that Love
Is within you,
All around you
And in every living thing.
It is knowing that Love
Can define you,
Make you complete,
That one day,
Life will astound you,
And all the world
Around you,
For the complexities of life No longer confound you, Because Love,
Simple Love,
Is your Belief.
And that is really all you need to know.

Now, go back into this world
And quit making a big deal
Out of everything,
Your seriousness is killing us.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. - Leonardo de Vinci

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.                                                  – Leonardo de Vinci

The concept of simplicity
has been related to in the field of epistemology.
According to Occam’s razor,
all other things being equal,
the simplest theory
is the most likely to be true.
In the context of human lifestyle,
simplicity can denote freedom from hardship,
effort or confusion.
Specifically, it can refer to
a simple living style.

Stevia is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agent

From NaturalNews: The native Indian tribe in Paraguay calls stevia “Kaa he-he” which means “sweet herb”. This herb is believed to have been used for centuries by locals as a sweetener and for medicinal treatments. Stevia has been shown to not only contain a great flavor but also be a natural anti-hyperglycemic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer agent.
Stevia contains zero calories and is up to 300 times sweeter than sucrose which makes stevia an excellent sugar substitute. This “miraculous Paraguay herb” may be called such because of its therapeutic properties in controlling diet related diseases such as type-2 diabetes, cancer prevention, weight control and overall human health.
.
Some research has found that stevia acts as an anti-hyperglycemic agent or high blood sugar antagonist, because of its ability to lower glucose levels by up to 35% in healthy individuals and approximately 18% in patients with type-2 diabetes.
.

Love’s Never Ending Journey / Signs of Nutritional Deficiencies / Love’s Gentle Way / Trip – T.B.A.

“When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark.

Though I may not know the answers
I can finally say I am free.
And if the questions led me here
Then I am who I was born to be.”

In Momentary Sunlight.

We are all from the Garden Of God’s Bountiful Love.

I believe that the nature of our reality
leads us to a threshold of understanding.
That Love is all there is.
– T. S. Eliot

As we explore the nature of this existence,
Of our being,
We may find reality to be
Incomprehensible, perplexing, unbelievable.
In our minds,
And in this space,
We may think we have arrived,
Before we started.
Perhaps, we have.
Or
Is this Love’s
Never ending journey?

Our timeless friend, poet and philosopher,
T. S. Eliot
Posits this poetically:

“We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.”

Hands

Have we arrived before we started? Or is this Love’s never ending journey?

In looking back,
We remember
The beautiful lives
We have been privileged
To discover
On this perilous
Journey of life.
And we may come
To understand
Why so many people
Along the way,
Loved us so much,
And why we came
To Love each other.

Poets and writers of song have always known why.
They have understood
The true nature of our reality.
They have felt, deep inside the fiber of their being,
That Love draws us together,
Enables us to survive,
Defines us,
Keeps us vibrant and alive,
Keeps the planets in their orbits
And the stars twinkling above.

“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.”
T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Clouds

       This Love has no beginning. It has no end.

Such is the nature of the Love
We feel coming from us.
But in reality,
Love flows through us,
Unconditional, Pure in Spirit, Everlasting,
From Heaven Above.

It takes a lot of Love
To overcome the evil we meet along the way.
But Love, only Love, can prevail.
Somehow, I feel that we do as we should,
When we reach deep inside our hearts
To feel the pain of others,
And understand that a vision of Goodness
Is the only thing that will sustain us.
Now I know there is no greater Good,
Than to give Love from oneself to another,
To someone that Love
Seems to have abandoned.

God could have stayed outside your Heart. But in He came.

God could have stayed outside your Heart, but in He came.

There is enough Goodness in one heart
To fill another.
There is enough Love in every heart,
In your heart,
To give a flower of God’s Love
To everyone you meet.
Together, we form a Breathtakingly Beautiful,
Fragrant Bouquet,
From the Garden
Of God’s Bountiful Love.

These Flowers, from Heaven Above,
Are a Gift from God,
To everyone, everywhere
And everything below.

      The Story of God’s Love is very plain to read.

“Love is most nearly itself
When here and now cease to matter.”
T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Your heart is incredibly beautiful,
And the most fascinating part about you.
Share the beauty with everyone,
And every living thing around you.
For we are all one and the same,
Here and nowhere in the same moment.

“Before I formed you in the womb,
I knew you.
Before you were born,
I set you apart for my holy purpose.”
Jeremiah 1:5

The Story of God’s Love
Is very plain to read,
Each page begins with you,
And it will never end.

The Story tells the Truth.
Your Love was formed
In the Mind of God,
Love here, now and everlasting.
So close your eyes and feel the Warm Embrace.
Open your arms and feel your Heart race,
Let it beat wild and free.
For the Heart that beats within
Is a Heart not even yours.
It belongs,
And has always belonged,
To another.

Brief at best,
The lives we live
Are God’s Bequest.
And the story of our lives,
Is no story at all,
Without feeling and caring,
Without sharing
The Everlasting,
Stunningly Beautiful
Gift of Love
From God.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.                                                                          – Socrates

the fragments of the world
are seeking each other,

Physical Signs of Nutritional Deficiencies
from our friends at NaturalNews.com

No ordinary Turkey and I.

No ordinary Turkey am I.

Heart: Irregular heart beat may indicate a magnesium deficiency. High blood pressure can be remedied with lots of ascorbic acid and L-lysine daily. General heart health can be bolstered with CoQ10 or Ubiquinol.

Here‘s a comprehensive coverage of heart health herbs and supplements for heart health. And there’s of a breakdown of the herbs here.

Thyroid: A swollen throat, poor or slow digestion, and general sluggishness from hypothyroidism may be improved by adding iodine supplements or iodine-rich foods from seaweed.

Red scaly skin on face near nose: This may be a sign of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency. Supplement with B-complex vitamins or organic bee pollen granules. Make sure you’re eating enough whole grains, eggs and dairy. Plant-based foods include spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, avocados and nuts. B2 helps activate the other B vitamins.

Mouth and tongue: Pale fissured tongueiron deficiency; sore painful fissured tongue – vitamin B3 (niacin) deficiency; sore burning tongue and lips or lips peeling – vitamin B2 deficiency; painful sore tongue with a smooth appearance – folate (B-9) deficiency – avoid synthetic folic acid.

Nails: White spots or ridges usually indicate low zinc. Soft or brittle nails usually demonstrate a magnesium deficiency.

I think the Goat wants out.

I think the Goat wants out.

Low energy, anemia: Vitamin B12 is the vitamin for these signs. Make sure that you use methylcobalamin sublingual tablets or skin patches only and include the other B vitamins as well.

Skin: Cold hands doesn’t always indicate a “warm heart.” It can indicate hypothyroidism (iodine deficiency) or low magnesium levels. Excessive spontaneous bleeding can be from insufficient vitamin C and/or vitamin K.

There are different quality levels of vitamin and mineral supplements. But if you visit the orthomolecular website, you’ll see how the right supplements at the right amounts can replace pharmaceuticals. Sources for this include:

NaturalNews Press Release: A Texas patent inventor has launched a collection of 3D-printable objects that function as key components in a non-electric, home-based food grow system that can be operated for pennies. The story of the invention – as well as the 3D-printable parts – is available at the non-profit www.FoodRising.org website.

The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box grows enormous quantities of food without using electricity or soil. It requires no weeding and uses no pumps, motors or complex parts of any kind. It grows highly-nutritious, mineral-rich foods using about 1/20 the water of conventional agriculture and about half the space of soil gardening.

My hero, Mike Adams, also known as the “Health Ranger,” developed the system based on the work of Professor Kratky and gives away the 3D-printable parts via downloadable files at FoodRising.org. Adams is also distributing DIY videos that instruct people on how to build their own systems using inexpensive parts and common tools.

All the 3D-downloadable parts are available now at:
http://www.foodrising.org/Downloads-Food-Pro…

Pre-built systems are offered for sale and the t-glase filament needed to print out the parts is also available at www.SupplySource.com.

“The Maker movement is about empowering people with innovative, grassroots solutions that can substantially improve the quality of their lives,” Adams explains. “This Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow System allows people to produce their own mineral-rich, better-than-organic foods for mere pennies.”

In The Garden of My Rosie’s Love

AROUND SCHOOL 005As I enter her garden,
I find myself all alone.
The place I gently lay her down to sleep,
I marked with my heart,
Shaped in stone.

The softness of her gentle eyes
I carry with me day by day,
Pressed against so many memories,
For that is Love’s
Gentle way.

The way goodbye reveals itself,
To be, to stay alive,
To give those left behind
The will to live,
To thrive.

006

          Rosie

Somewhere in time,
We will meet again.
For you are still alive
While
my Heart waits for you.
And Love, our Love, will survive.

Thank you.
