Until Every Thread Is Torn / This Nutrient Could Eliminate 50% of ALL Deaths From CANCER / School Starts Sept. 1

    Pouring down like Golden Honey

Across the Evening Sky
the Light is slowly leaving,
pouring down like golden Honey,
with Beauty aglow
as we fall in Love
Believing,
but never truly knowing
if we are dreaming.

     ‘Til every thread Is torn.

Our Lives
we Live in such hues,
as if what is revealed
is real,
until every thread
is torn
from the Fabric of Life and Living,
in the Tapestry of
our minds
surreal.

.

So much of what we know
as Life,
is not really Living
at all.
But in the brevity of our Being,
in so Believing,
Blessings abound.

Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes,
with Beauty far beyond
what we can behold,
flung against the Canvass
of the Evening Skies,
reminded us
that the Love of God
opens our Hearts,
as we open our eyes.

Poets and Writers of Song
have always known,
always felt deeply,
our Hearts need to be
Courageous and Free.
Though we may be made blind
by illusions so bold
they appear infinite and immeasurable,
by the Grace of God
we can see.

     Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes

Joni Mitchell
expresses in beautiful song:

“I’ve looked at Life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s Life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know Life
at all.”

Is it delusion to Believe
the images in our minds
are the real World?
Is it unlike
our experience of it?

The concept that reality is
only in the mind,
is found time after time after time,
In the study of Philosophy,
and in the Sciences
that remind.

Physicist
Sir Arthur Eddington notable said,
“Matter is mostly ghostly
empty space.”

To be more precise,
it is 99.9999999% empty space.

My friends,
we faint and flickering
shadows and shades
are almost non-existent.
Matter, of which we are made,
Is coming into and out of existence
Billions of times each second.

Your reality,
which includes you,
Is blinking constantly on and off at all times.
Quantum physics has left scientists
all over the world
Baffled.
Especially with the discovery
that our physical material reality,
Isn’t really physical
at all

Our Human brain is designed
by natural experience (in order to survive),
to sense the “on” frequency.
Just as quickly,
it blinks “off,”
and everything, including you,
disappears.
However, your brain registers and connects only
the “on” segments,
and thus you have the sense
or feeling of your reality being
solid.
What quantum mechanics reveals
Is that there is NO true “physicality”
in the Universe.

     We faint and flickering shadows and shades . . .

Quantum theory predicts
that every particle spends some time
as a combination of other particles
in all possible ways.
These predictions (read more)
are now very well understood and tested.
.
Yes my Friends,
we are truly ONE
with the Universe,
with each other,
with God.

“We don’t know what matter is
anymore than we know
what mind is.”
Christian de Quincy,
The Paradox of Consciousness

We have discovered in quantum physics
that even subatomic particles
are far, far from solid.
They are nothing like matter
as we think we know it.
These particles,
of which we are made,
can never be precisely measured.
And they are everywhere,
Everywhere,
In the same moment,
Until observed.

Religion incorporates transcendent, immanent
Omnipresence.
The Divine is everywhere.
The property of being present everywhere
defines a Universal and fundamental substance,
which is the source of all existence.
God is omnipresent in a way
that He is able to interact with His
Divine Creations,
with you,
Child of God.

Our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all.

“Behold,
Heaven and the Highest Heaven

cannot contain you,
how much less this house which I have built!
1 Kings 8:27

Plato believed
The real world
was a world of ideas
and
Eternal perfect forms.
.
Is it?

Particles are,
and we are,
Clouds of potential existence,
with no definite location.
Whatever matter is,
It has little,
If any,
Substance.

“We don’t know a millionth
of one percent
about anything.
Thomas Edison

Our idea of matter
as solid,
as substance,
is a quality appearing
ONLY in our consciousness.
It models what is real,
but is unlike
what is really,
or, perhaps,
NOT really,
there.

German philosopher Immanuel Kant
posited that time and space
are not inherent qualities of the physical World;
They are a reflection
of the way
our mind operates.

We are the creators of the World we experience.

And so,
We are NOT
passive experiencers of the World;
We are the Creators
of the world we experience.
We, my friends,
are Children of God,
and firmly at the center of things.
The Earth is not
at the center of the Universe,
WE are.

Human Thought Determines Reality.

“You don’t need to feel alienated
by being at the mercy of a blind material World;
YOU are the World.
Riccardo Manzotti

Early in the 1900’s it was proven
beyond a shadow of a doubt
with an experiment called
the double slit experiment.
Researchers found the determining factor
of the behavior of energy (particles)
at the quantum level,
is the awareness
of the observer. (read more)

Literature,
throughout the World,
of a Spiritual Nature,
proclaims that the whole world
Is within.

We are truly ONE with the Universe, with each other, with God.

The question of God’s existence
is the most important question
of Human philosophy.
One chooses either a self existent God
or a self existent Universe,
and the Universe is not behaving
as if it is self existent
.
According to the second law of thermodynamics,
the Universe is running down like a clock,
cooling off like a giant stove. (read more)

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are merging,
they are becoming one.
Not as antithetically opposed
as we may believe.
Our discoveries suggests
a far, far more enlightening meaning
to this marriage.

Not just academic,
not just philosophical,
but personal, practical, meaningful.
And as we think upon these things,
as best we can,
we become Blessed to realize:

“Those who dwell in the Beauty
and the mystery of Life
are never lonely.”

The Earth is not at the center of the Universe, WE are.

In our Human affairs
we Live our precious Lives
as if the material World
Is the fundamental reality.
And in this consciousness
lay the root of our discontent,
our misery,
our unquenchable thirst.

My friends,
we are losing our Humanity,
not knowing
WE
are far, far more
than Human.

The Human Spirit
Is the very essence of Life
In a Human Being.
And knowledge of this can amplify
the Joy of Living,
and bring about Spiritual Freedom.

You are a Spiritual Being
having a Human experience.

Your infinite capacity
to create, to Love, to dream, to forgive
and to be aware that you are far, far more
than you can ever imagine,
ultimately defines what it means to be
Human.
You are the most beautiful and miraculous Creation
in the Universe.
And you are
Eternal.

What is missing,
disappearing from Life,
Is the most exciting, wonderful, exhilarating
discovery of all:
When we Love someone,
and finally come to know
that we are deeply Loved,
God enters our Hearts,
and what is dreamed
becomes forever
real.
.
Goodnight.

We, my friends, are Children of God.

“I need your Love,
I need your Love,
God speed your Love
To me.”

Did You Know…

… that there’s a nutrient that could eliminate 50% of all deaths from cancer and prevent other diseases that claim nearly 1 million lives every year?

That nutrient is … Vitamin D, the “sunshine vitamin,” which is now recognized by traditional and natural doctors alike as one of the most powerful, inexpensive ways to prevent disease.

Vitamin D is found in small amounts in some foods, such as milk, eggs, fish, and fortified orange juice – but the most important, natural source of vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D influences over 2,000 of the 30,000 genes in the body, which explains why it has been found to inhibit the onset and spread of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis, to name a few.

Next to smoking, not getting enough vitamin D is the No. 2 risk factor of cancer!  Every year, 30% – or two million people worldwide (200,000 in the U.S. alone) – could be spared of dying from cancer if they would just take the proper amounts of vitamin D.

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, an Osteopathic physician and New York Times bestselling author, “Groundbreaking studies proved that 600,000 cases of cancer could be prevented every year just by increasing your levels of vitamin D. And without question, the best way to obtain your vitamin D is by UVB sunlight falling on unexposed skin in doses that do not cause sunburn. Beyond cancer, increasing levels of vitamin D could prevent diseases that claim nearly 1 million lives throughout the world each year.”

Dr. Michael Holick, one of the world’s most respected authorities on Vitamin D and author of The UV Advantage explains that “Vitamin D is made in the skin, gets into the bloodstream, and then goes into the liver and kidneys where it is activated into a hormone called 125-dihydroxy (calcitriol). It is this activated vitamin D that has biological, disease-prevention effects, such as preventing prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and colon cancer.”

The proper amount of vitamin D in the body helps to:

  1. stop mutated cells from forming and spreading;
  2. cause diseased cells to commit “cell suicide” – i.e., cause them to literally self-destruct;
  3. causes the differentiation of cells (Cancer cells are often undifferentiated, and this causes them to reproduce faster);
  4. reduce the probability that dormant tumors will regenerate into cancerous cells by inhibiting the growth of blood vessels in those areas.

Absorption is the key. Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., Director of the Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center, and an expert on the effects of the environment and diet on chronic disease, recommends that adults get 2,000 to 4,000 IU’s of vitamin D every day from the sun or from vitamin D supplements to prevent cancerous or dysfunctional cellular activity. However, most people get less than 300 IU’s a day.

While it’s true that excessive amounts of unprotected UVA rays can increase your risk of melanoma skin cancer, there is an overwhelming body of evidence that shows that moderate sun exposure combats cancer and other disease without risk.

It is virtually impossible to overdose on vitamin D. In fact, there’s never been a reported case of vitamin D toxicity – so go outside and enjoy your daily dose of sunshine! If you’re unable to get sufficient sun exposure, taking a high quality vitamin D supplement is recommended by many health practitioners. Natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), or human vitamin D, is the type most often prescribed for therapeutic reasons because it is far superior to vitamin D2, which is synthetic.

The Very Foundation Of Our Human Existence / 7 Powerful Mushrooms And Their Healing Benefits / Sept.1 School Starts

  No Person
comes into Being
without the need
for
Love
.
We Human Beings
are here
because of Love.
We are birthed
by Love,
the Love that is
God,
Love
that is within

you and me.

No thing,
however Beautiful or valuable,
can make us feel Truly Loved.
Only the Love
of
another Living Creation
can do that.

“No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
John Donne

poet John DonneOur deeper identity
lies in the fragile and subjective Nature
of the Human Heart.

Our need for Love
lies at the very foundation
of our Human existence.
Love

brings us happiness.
It
is the very essence

of our Nature.

Look to Love,
My Friends,
and you will dream.
and give your Heart
flight on wings.
Love
is the only thing
meant to be.

The Human Heart
is Home to us all.
 If Love in Life
is meant to be,
then the Heart
is the only thing
that will set you
free.

Cherish
what you feel
above all else 
Forests of people
that surround us
day by day,
can dissolve and decay
the fiber of our will,
 our will to
Be.
Our need for Love
is the very essence
of our existence.

We are
the Human of Beings,
filled with Hope for Happiness
and Beautiful Dreams.
Since the Time
of our Sacred Birth,
expressions of Love
have freely flowed
from our Mother,
Nature,
all around us.

  But,
a Child

however old,
cannot survive without the nourishment
of Love.

Your happiness
as a Child, 
depended directly upon
Love.
And,
Child of God,
it still does.

My Dear Friends,
the Love of
God
is always here.
HIS presence
is always within.
The LOVE we share
is the Love
of God.

It is one
and the same.

In this Lower World
Heaven resides
within your precious Heart.
Yes,
God Lives within.
And
His Love,
YOUR Love,
will never die.

There is
something Beautiful and unique
about you.
How fortunate we all are,
that we traveled through our Time
and this Space.
And our trace

in Time
no one can erase
or forget,
if
our Space
was filled with
Love.

Goodnight.

7 Powerful Mushrooms & Their Healing Benefits

7 Powerful Mushrooms & Their Healing Benefits

Do you have your mushrooms diced through a stirfry or brewed into a superfood latte? There’s a way for everyone to enjoy the incredible health benefits of these fungi. Soils and environments where mushrooms grow are a rich source of providing essential minerals in our diet and the different varieties are packed with widespread and potent healing abilities. Since discovering our friend Nick Polizzi’s new series, Proven, we’ve taken our knowledge of science-backed, plant-based medicine to the next level. Here is just some of what we’ve discovered so far…

1. Reishi – The All-Rounder

If you’re looking for something that embodies the meaning of superfood, reishi is the mushroom that does it all. It has recently been the subject of many studies relating to cancer development and chemotherapy, and immunity benefits. As an adaptogen, reishi can help to alleviate fatigue and regulate stress levels, and there is also some research into how reishi can lower blood sugar and cholesterol while improving liver function.

How To Enjoy: This mushroom is mostly found in powdered or capsule form and can be added to warm teas or smoothies.

2. Shiitake – The Source of Cancer-Fighting Compound Lentinan

Perhaps you’ve had your daily dose of shiitake in a miso soup or wrapped up in a bao bun, but these flavor-rich shrooms have a powerful polysaccharide component – activating our immune system. Lentinan, a compound found in shiitake mushrooms, has been shown to slow down the growth of leukemia cells and stop them from spreading. In some countries, like China and Japan, injectable lentinan is even being prescribed to support the immune system in treatment programs.

How To Enjoy: You can buy shiitake mushrooms fresh or dried from your local produce store, farmer’s market, or Asian supermarket.

3. Oyster – The HIV Fighter

If you’re a first-time, at-home-mushroom farmer, this should be the first variety you reach for. Alongside being alarmingly easy to grow, oyster mushrooms, in all their geometric beauty, have been praised in the scientific community for their role in HIV research. Antiretroviral treatment (ART) in HIV patients has been known to raise both triglyceride and cholesterol levels. The antihyperlipidemic (prevention or counteraction of lipids accumulating in the blood) effects of oyster mushrooms have helped to return the body to homeostasis in both significant animal trials, and small-scale, preliminary human trials.

How To Enjoy: These mushrooms are best enjoyed fresh, and you’ll be able to find them wherever you get your produce.

4. Porcini – The Anti-Inflammatory

Risotto fans rejoice, the beloved porcini is one of the most nutritious mushies you can have on your plate. Alongside being low-calorie but nutritionally-rich and promoting good digestive health, these fungi are powerful when it comes to reducing inflammation – the precursor for disease. Scientists are exploring conditions that the anti-inflammatory compounds may aid, but one 2016 study using mice showed a significant decrease in inflammation markers, especially in asthma response.

How To Enjoy: Porcini mushrooms are most often found dried, but this process helps the fungus retain its benefits.

5. White Button – The Prostate & Breast Cancer Fighters

One of the most commonly found mushrooms (in your local supermarket) conveniently may help to address some of the most commonly found cancers. White button mushrooms may seem humble at first glance but have had powerful impacts – especially in reducing PSA levels in patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer. There have also been trials to suggest that the extract may prevent the recurrence of post-menopausal breast cancer.

How To Enjoy: White buttons are available in your local produce section, from farmers, or wherever you get your produce.

6. Chanterelle – The Metabolism Booster

Just as beautiful as the oyster, chanterelle mushrooms are loved in cooking for how the flavor is retained when sautéed in organic grass-fed butter. As luck would have it, they are also one of the most concentrated sources of B vitamins that nature can provide – including the hard-to-find B12. This water-soluble vitamin group is crucial for converting food into energy and keeping the nervous system thriving, and the high fiber content promotes good digestion.

How To Enjoy: Chanterelle’s can be bought fresh or dried – the latter rehydrates into a lovely tender shroom in broths and soups.

7. Black Truffle – The Feel-Good Response

Truffles have long been a sign of luxury and a refined palette, but there’s a reason we love these hard-to-come-by fungi. Truffles actually contain a ‘bliss molecule’ that is very similar in structure and function to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana. One study has found that anandamide, a compound found in black truffles, triggers a chemical reaction that enhances mood, changes appetite, and reduces feelings of depression and pain of the human brain. But don’t worry, truffles won’t go getting you high!

How To Enjoy: They can be found fresh, dried, or even in an oil form. Either way, they’ll retain the feel-good factor.

Between The Known And What We Believe / GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN / The Sacred Soldiers of our Society: Our Officers of the Peace in the Valley

Think
with your
Heart.

There is a thin veil
between the known,

and what we Believe.

And,
as we struggle

day by day
to survive
and thrive,

we can Pray
and form a bond
with the unknown.
.

And a Song begins to form,
a
 Song
birthed
by the Human Heart

and heard
all the World around.

It blends
with voices in numbers
untold,
as we join in endless Praise
to give Thanks to God
for our precious Gift
of Life,

and all the Love
that abounds.

Never
shall we be
all alone,
when our Hearts
join as one,
in Praise
of the Miracle of Life
and Love through the ages,
  as we grow,
and come to know
more and more
Blessings
abound.

In Time,
we will come to know,
the Miracles of Life
are sent with Love
to all of us
from God Above.
.

We are part of
the Music
of a Magical Moment.

And as we join
in the Song of Life
and listen to the Beautiful Music of
Nature
heard all around,
 it brings us to tears
to know that Life
can be so very Beautiful,
even though
circumstances
can make us forget,
and create regret
we should never
know.

Through all Eternity
all
we need ever
know,
is God’s
Love.

“In Oceans deep
My Faith will stand
And I will call upon
Your Name,

And keep my eyes above the waves.
When oceans rise,
my Soul will rest in
Your Embrace
.
For I am Yours and
You are mine
.”

Joel Houston, Matt Crocker, Salomon Lighthelm

To keep our Faith
in the Divine,
be generous
and be kind,
and keep your Heart
and your eyes
upon the Beauty of the Earth,

and on the Skies,
and upon your Sacred Birth.
For all the Love
which from our Birth

over and around us lies,
we need but give Thee
Thanks and Praise.

Every Blessing
is a Gift.
And every Birth,
a Blessing.

 Today,
let us be so grateful
for the Gift of Life,
grateful for the Beautiful People
all around us,
for the air we breathe,
for the connection we have
with the Divine Love
of God.

As the Beautiful Sky
is opening upon the Dawn
of each new Day,
and the energy of the Universe
pours Life
into every cell
of your precious Being,
stand within the moment,
to give Thanks
and Pray.

May God Bless
YOU
and your precious Family,
and your friends.
Ask the Divine
to cleanse the Sacred Soul
and keep us 
on the Path to Fulfillment
of His Wishes and Dreams
for you.

May the abundance of God’s Love
fill your Sacred Heart,
and bring Joy
to you all.

Goodnight.

“Many night’s we’ve Prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our Hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood,
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear.
We were moving mountains
long before we knew we could.
There can be Miracles
When you Believe.
Though Hope is frail,
It’s hard to kill.
Who knows what Miracles
You can achieve
When you Believe.
Somehow you will
You will when you Believe.”
Stephen Schwartz

GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN

May God Bless and Keep
all of our Friends in law enforcement,
as they prove to be
such a Blessing to all of us.

“Someone’s lost the plan

Evil must be mirrored in the face of Courage, or it will overwhelm the innocent.

Our ignorance leaves exposed
parts of the Heart
we keep covered
from our own
deeper selves.

We want so desperately
to stand on the
Purity of Truth.
But we often cower in silence
facing the mirror
of our own fear.

As we tumble
out of our dreams
and back
into what we assume
is reality,
we fall from the Grace
of our Beautiful Imaginings,
and into the moment
of never really knowing
what is real,
what is
True.

patrol_officer-b

Wonderful neighbors and friends.

So very many
of our precious children
knew not
the difference between
now and never,
this moment
and forever.

They came
to a moment in Time
paralyzed in thought,
no longer able to
make sense
of the waking
World –
drifting,
as it were,
in and out
of what
they dreamed of
and hoped for,
and the World
became
a living nightmare.

hispanic_female-b

You are the Guardians of the Gardens of Life.

We watched
as many drowned
in the deep end
of an ocean of drugs and violence,
between innocence and confusion,
between waves
of goodbye
lapping upon our shores.

Indifference and ignorance
stagnated into
Daylight Nights
that seemingly would never end,
and into days
of sufferance with no new
beginning.

“Peace has its victories,
but it takes
Brave men and women

to win them.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear
perpetuated itself
in our ignorance,
as we listened not
to the soft, still voices
that cried from within
the fragile Human Hearts
of our precious children.

And we allowed evil
to steal from us
everything that God and Man
held Dearest.

But Hope
rises with the dawn
of a new horizon,
a new awareness,
as we find new meaning
in old lyrics
of Life.

tree-dark-b

    The mirror of our own fear.

My Dear Friends,
we are never really
far from the Light.
On the other side
of our spinning Globe,
it is always
on its way.

And as it spins
round and round and round,
we come face to face with fear,
in a seemingly
never ending dance
with destiny.
And we wait for the Light
of God’s Love,
unaware,
it is always
on its way,
or perhaps,
already
here.

officer-female-b

       The Light of God’s Love.

Evil
must be mirrored
in the face of courage,
or it will overwhelm
the innocent.

And our Children,
My Dear Friends,
are not for the taking.

If alone,
we have not
the courage and the strength,
the insight
and the wisdom,
to do battle
with the forces of darkness,
that for financial or other gain,
would destroy everyone
we truly Love,
then we must fervently Pray
for those
Towers of Strength
surpassing all others,
to come our way.

And God,
in His Wisdom,
provides.

officers-b

           Towers of Strength.

Yes.
God answers our
Prayers.

But then,
My Friend,
we MUST listen
to His Answer,
or ALL we will ever hear
is the cold and very lonely
sound of
Silence.

God
fervently
answers our Prayers.
He is with us.
And he Abides
within the Hearts and Minds
of so very many
wonderful neighbors and friends,
who have dedicated themselves
to protect
and save and serve,
and often
lay down their Precious Lives,
so we may live,
so that our children
may survive
and thrive,
and do so
without FEAR.

    Who chose to rise above.

These Sacred Soldiers
of our Society,
are reflections
of our Deeply Held Morality.
The are
the very Best
of the Best.
They are Gifts
that God and Mankind
have bestowed
upon us.

They are
the very Human
and very Courageous
Crusaders of our fragile Culture,
who willingly give their Lives,
so we may Live,
in Peace and prosperity,
in Freedom,
and with Honor,
with Dignity,
and with a Love
for Life.

They are the
Peace Officers
of our Nation,
who chose to rise above
the ordinary demands
of Life and Living.

Courage,
My Friend,
is a form of pure
Love.
The very word
comes from the Heart.
Coeur
is the French word
for Heart.

Reflections of our Deeply Held Morality.

In the finest traditions
of Service to Mankind,
we find the Purity of Truth
dictates
that the Courage
to Protect and Serve
and become a Salvation
for so very many,
is truly birthed in the
Heart.

Yes,
there is a deep River
that flows through
our fragile Lives.
Its reach
is very long.
It is truly deep.
And it is
Blue.
So very Blue.

A River of Love
is flowing,
ever flowing toward
what abides Infinitely Deep –
and it flows
from the Vast Ocean
of God’s Love.

Please join me
in extending our sincere appreciation
to one and all,
who are so
Lovingly and Courageously
dedicated to preserving
our way of Life,
our Love of Living
and our precious Children.

We THANK YOU.
And we truly
LOVE YOU
too.

And
we thank God
for the precious Gifts
of your Lives.

You
are the Guardians

And we are
truly Grateful.

Our Prayers

“In Valor there is Hope.”   – Tacitus

You reach out to us
each and every day,
and selflessly give
so that we
may Live.
Flowers grow
for the comfort

Grasping wild,
they tell evermore
of Love
that Blossoms like those
now in hand.

But bouquets of Flowers
never formed into words,
never spoken,
can block the Sun.
A constant shadow
can lie evermore across
what we did not say
today.

God Loves us through the lives of those who live to protect us.

So let us begin
to express our Love,
the very deep and abiding Gratitude
that lives within,
to those who have
given so much,
to so many.

Children
can teach us
many things.
They can show us

Patrick Zamarripa – deeply Loved Father, Son, Soldier, Savior and Brother to us ALL.

Dallas Police Officer Patrick Zamarripa,
pictured with his precious daughter,
was killed by a cowardly sniper
along with four other police officers
several years ago.
This Loving Father of two was a veteran
who served three tours in Iraq
before coming home
to be a Dallas Police Officer.
His Father, Rick Zamarripa,
has asked for our Prayers
to help the family
through this.

Let us Pray.

“It is not how these officers died that made them Heroes, it is how they lived.”      – Vivian Eney Cross

Since the first recorded police death in 1791,
there have been over 20,000 law enforcement officers
killed in the line of duty.
Currently, there are more than 20,789 names
engraved on the walls of the
National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
memorialEvery day Texas State Troopers,
Agents and Texas Rangers
and local Police Officers
risk their lives
to protect and serve us,
and they are honored to do so.
Some DPS officers pay the ultimate Sacrifice,
and we are Forever
Grateful to them and their families
for their courageous service to we,
the people of Texas.

and the date of death,

In Harmony With Your Heart / A Little Doorway In A Dark Wall / Sept. 1 – We Begin Again

As Human Beings,
we have the opportunity
 to experience Life
as a Journey
of Love.

This precious Life
CAN  bring us
to the center of our Blessed Hearts,
and our Earth.
We can come to realize
just how Beautiful it truly is.
Your precious Heart
can be filled with
Sacred Awareness.

To become aware
is always
an
emotional journey.
Your emotions

are the deepest and most precious part
of your fragile Being.
How you feel
is much more significant
than your physical being.

The Human Heart
swells from all the pain and sorrow.

The range of emotions we feel
is like no other phenomenon
we can experience
or try to explain.
Our feelings range from
the simple,
to the most complex
and
the most misunderstood.

What makes you feel happy to be alive? It is simple. And it is called LOVE.

Our stirring emotions
range from gentle waves
lapping upon the clay of our shore,
to the violent storms
of war
after war,
after war,
after war.
Oh My God!
WHEN
will we war
no more?
.
 In our brief moment of Life,
sorrow surfaces and tears provide some release
from damaging emotional scars.

But,
My Dear Friends,
our feelings
are not meant to be caged.
Their feathers are too bright.
And when they fly away,
part of you knows
it is a sin to lock them up.
The place we Live in
will be empty and meaningless
if
they are no more.

So share
all the Love
hidden deep inside,
and go
to war
no more.

                                          It is simple.

Life is Beautiful.
And with the movement of the Tides,
and the lapping of emotional waves
upon our fragile shores
made of clay,
the discord and dissonance
can be coupled with the Forgiveness
we crave,
and give Life and reason
to our Beliefs,
and Glory
to our Being.

Your Love
can be contemplative, reflective and enriching
to your Soul,
in as much as you give,
as much as you
receive.
.
All men live lives
of quiet desperation.”
T.S. Elliot

Prayer
creates a little doorway
in a dark wall
of unawareness and lack of Faith.
But,
when you step through it,
you can breath,
and Life is good to you
again.
The realization

that God truly Loves us,
penetrates the core within.

This moment,
is an instant,

that can be taken out of Time,
and alter Life
by holding it still
in deep reflection.

Only if you have been
in the deepest valley,
can you ever know how magnificent
it is to be
on the highest Mountain.

.
 Such awareness
connects you
with all the Love

hidden deep inside.
.
“Love does not end at death,
only
the lack of Love ends it.”

Jim Morrison

                              It is reflected in YOU.

My Dear Friends,
GO OUTSIDE.
Get far away from the
illusions
of Human constructs
.
Ninety degree angles and straight linear formations
and
not Natural,
are boring
and bind you to a habitual
and unthinking Life.

Our minds
and our imaginations
become so limited when exposed to
virtually nothing but straight lines
and box shapes in the environment.
We literally can no longer think
outside the box”.
.
We ingrain these repetitive
formations and patterns

in our minds by over exposure to them,
and they become a part of us
and limit our thinking and our creativity.

They become our first and second nature,
because the repetition has entered
into our subconscious minds.
.
The shapes of our houses,
and everything inside and out,
and the things found throughout our cities
and our Lives,

that we are constantly exposed to,
blind us to the real nature
of what is truly real,
what is
Natural.

Ask yourself:
what shapes
occur in Nature?

                      What shapes occur in Nature?

.And think
about
what makes you
aware of your surroundings:

what the ground feels like
underneath your bare feet,
how the fresh air smells around you,
how stunningly Beautiful
the Birds of the air
can be.

We simply MUST
become aware of
where we are,
what we are doing.

Sharing your gifts
brings awareness.
By sharing
you truly know
what a Gift you are,
and how much you truly
mean to others.

This Dream
of our brief Lives
is covered with a veil
of
Beautiful
Blessings.
And like the Rays of our Sun,
can deeply touch everyone.


The World is so Beautiful
and
it is reflected
in YOU.

                     Upon the real pathway of Life.

Walk along a path
created not by our kind,
but by God’s Loving Nature.
.
Feel
the warm and gentle breeze
as it caresses your face.
And as the green leaves
are swaying in the wind,

you will come to realize,
they are in tune with your thoughts,
in Harmony
with your Heart.

My Friends,
the World and we
are one.

As delicate Flowers unfold
to greet you
upon the real pathway
of Life,
they will Light up your Spirit
and lift you
to beyond.
They Love you.
,
Let the gentle flow of their Joy
fill you with delight.

Smile and sing
and realize that
here is now,

and in this moment
is the entire and Beautiful
meaning of Life.

God’s Love
is in every fluttering Leaf,
emanating from every Beautiful Flower,
in every breeze,
every moment.
.
The Source of your Life,
is the same Inspiration
and Infinite Love.

“Consider the lilies of the field,
How they grow, how they grow.
Consider the birds in the sky,
How they fly, how they fly.
He clothes the lilies of the field.
He feeds the birds in the sky.
And He will feed those who trust Him
And guide them with His Eye.”
Roger Hoffman
.
The Beautiful World
God Created for you,
is also within you.

Goodnight.

The Precious Memory of Melanie Scheuring / Yesterday Is Closing A Door /

“What we have once enjoyed
we can never lose;
ALL that we deeply Love
becomes a part of us.”
Helen Keller

Melanie Scheuring

 “To live in Hearts we leave behind is not to die.”                                Thomas Campbell

Dedicated
with all my
Love

to the Precious Memory
of Melanie Scheuring.

She
will Live Forever
in the Hearts
of everyone.

“When you are sorrowful
look again in your Heart,
and you shall see that in Truth
you are weeping for that
which has been your delight.”

Khalil Gibran

Her Love
is the most Divine, Sincere, and Majestic
ever Conceived for our Hearts. 
The Harmony
of Her Precious Being
is a Song of Love,
Unconditional,
Unrelenting,
and Eternal
Love.
.
We Thank God
for
Her Precious Life.

“If you find it’s me you’re missing,
If you’re hoping I’ll return,
To your thoughts I’ll soon be list’ning,
In the road I’ll stop and turn.
Then the wind will set me racing
As my journey nears its end,
and the path I’ll be retracing
When I’m Homeward bound
again.”
Marta Keen Thompson

Yesterday is leaving
  and closing a door.
And as the Sun
is slowly setting
on the Beautiful, Reflective Horizon,
it reminds us,
that nevermore
will we Live there
again.

We leave the Light
of days gone by
and let the shadows
fade away.
Tomorrow,
is another day.

My Dear Friends,
let the shadows
on the walls of your Heart,
fade away.
Step into the Beautiful Light
of a new Dawn,
a new Day
and
close the door.

When we say Goodbye
to where we have been,
and Pray,
and ask the Lord
to tell our fragile Human Heart

to beat again,
we step into the Light
of God’s Grace
and HOPE
is born
again.

                        Let the shadows fade away.

With God by our side,
we have never
lost the way.

Man’s true nature
being lost,
everything becomes his nature;
as, his true good being lost,
everything becomes his good.”
Blaise Pascal

LOVE
is the only Light
we Forever see,
the only Light
to show us the
way,
the way to Live,
the way to a reason
to cry,
the way to never
give up,
never deny,
the Beauty
of God’s Love for you,
for YOUR
precious Life.
.
Let us TRY
again
to Live another
day.
God’s Love
Truly Lives in your
Heart.
.
The Love of God
created you.
God is Love,
so
Love is your Creator.
This Sacred Knowledge
is the single most important discovery
you can make in
Life.
.

Love
is the reason
we were born.
The ONLY reason.

Dear CHILD of God,
He dwells
within.
This Light
is never dim,
never dies.
It is the
TRUTH.
It never lies.
.
Feel the Power
of God’s Love.
He gives us
HOPE.
God will hear us,
if we turn to Him.
.
We cannot always say
that everything is well
in our brief Lives.
There will always be storms
and tragedy.
.
But with Faith
in our Loving God,
with Trust in His Divine Help,
we CAN confidently say:

“It is well,
it is well with my Soul.
When Peace , like a river,
attendeth my way,
When sorrows like seal billows roll;
Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well
it is well with my Soul.”
Horatio Spafford
.

Love will see farther
than we ever could.

Leave the darkness,

feel the Sun.

As this World drives you
to your knees,
close your eyes and slowly breathe.
Let the shadows fall away.
Step into the Light of God’s Grace.
Yesterday
is a closing door.
.

NO.
We don’t live there
anymore.
.
God’s Love 
will pull you through.
Yes,
leave the darkness,
and feel the Sun.
The new Day 
is far from over.
Your journey
has just begun.

The Holy Word of God
is where all the Answers are.
Feel the Loving Comfort
from Heaven Above.

“Your Word
is a Lamp for my feet,
a Light on my path.”
Psalm 119:105

.
My Friends,
words
fall far short
in times like these.

But the Word
of God
will wash over you.
With His Love,
your precious Heart
will beat again.
.
Goodnight.

The Poetry of Life / Blessings You May Be Overlooking / Dietary Changes for People with Depression

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

Victor Hugo

Do not wait
to be Happy
in a future
which may never be.
The ONLY time to become Happy
is always
in THIS precious moment.

When we forget our true
and original Nature,
we feel hopeless
and spiral down into
deep despair.
.
 My Dear Friends,
our original Nature,
the one that is real,
is pure and limitless.
It isn’t bound or attached
to our past,
to our mistakes
of which we ALL
are in sufferance,
or to circumstances,
so typically beyond
our control.

Unregenerate Mankind
is not renewed in the Heart and mind,
or most importantly,
reborn in Spirit.
Without a rebirth
of all the Love
hidden deep in your Heart,
your Heart fails to know God,
and so the Wisdom of God
remains hidden to those
that are perishing.

           Love reflects in the mind and the Heart.

Accepting
the Beautiful and Bountiful Love of God,
breathes contentment into Life.
Such Love
reflects in the mind and the Heart,
like the notes of gentle drops of water,
like rhythmic waves of the Ocean
rising and falling,
like Angelic Voices
 carrying you away
into a Place of Peace
and Joy.

The Beauty of God’s Love
can not be described with words,
because it is
Infinite.

Yes,
God’s
Love is
Forever.

My Friends,
the Holy Bible is really
a Love Letter
from God
to you and to me.
If you are feeling alone or unloved,
please read and meditate
on the Loving Verses
found in the Word of God.

You can come to understand
just how much God Loves
YOU.

                  The Love of God is the Light inside.

How magnificent
to be in the Beauty of Prayer
and search for the Peace
in one’s Soul.

Breathe deeply,
calm your mind.
Reach deep down inside your Heart
and reflect upon the last tender moment
of pure Joy that you felt.
Meditate upon where you were
and what you found
in that rare moment
and how it made you feel.
.
Now,
know that you can feel that way again.
Where you last found pure Joy,
there it will always be.

The Love of God
is the Light
inside
that heals the Heart
that  Loves.

Goodnight.

Reflect upon the last tender moment of pure Joy.

Are you Grateful for Your Life?
13 Blessings You May Be Overlooking
by Joseph Wilner
youhaveacalling.com
Click here to read more

I’m sure there has been much pain in your Life. You have probably had extreme ups and downs, and times of emotional, spiritual, and physical unrest. This is why gratitude can be one of the most difficult virtues to uphold.

We forget that gratitude is not only about our accomplishments, what we have, or the good fortune we experience, but that gratitude comes from simply being a person alive in the world. There are many Blessings in disguise that aren’t always apparent to us, and many of these Blessings are afforded to us simply for being alive! As long as we have Life, we can learn to be grateful for it, and uncover our unique Human Blessings despite the hardships. Below are some broad and general Blessings that you may have overlooked.

1. Wisdom

Through life we have so many opportunities to grow as a person and gain greater awareness and understanding of ourselves and world around us. This is a true blessing. Learning from our mistakes and growing from experiences is a part of the gift of life. Recognize how fortunate we are to be able to grow spiritually and reflect on our own existence in order to reach greater contentment.

2. Service

As Human beings we have been Blessed to be able to give and serve others. We can do kind things for other people, or altruistically help another person in need, and we can get this same behavior reciprocated to ourselves. Taking an approach to give back what we have been given and help others feel better is a wonderful gift. When we grow full of gratitude and joy we can begin to share it with others.

3. Protection

We are all afforded protection. Think of the many close calls and moments where you have safely made it through a precarious situation. Most of us have a sense of security and faith that we are going to be okay in difficult times. This is something to be very grateful for. Things may not be perfect but as long as we have a sense of safety it makes it possible to experience love, pleasure, and trust.

4. Rest

If you have a type-A personality like me you are always on the go, and viewing rest and relaxation as a blessing can be overlooked. However, we all need time to restore our body and mind, and having time to relax can be one of the most valuable gifts to receive in this busy world. It provides us a new beginning and fresh perspective. Don’t take for granted the opportunity to simply relax and be restful.  Recognize your downtime as a Blessing.

5. Healing/Health

If you’re going through a difficult medical situation right now, this may be hard to accept, but our bodies are made to heal. Every cut, scrape, and bruise heals in time. Focus on the magnificence of your bodies natural healing ability. Learn to cherish your health, preserve it, and when you get sick feel Blessed that you will get better.

6. Guidance

We all have moments where we receive guidance, whether directly or indirectly. We are given advice and receive advice every day if we are willing to stop and notice these moments. Feel Blessed when you ask someone a question and they happily give you advice. When you are able to help another person, recognize the Beauty in this encounter. There is an infinite amount of knowledge in the World that is at our finger tips. If you are uncertain about something, guidance is around the corner.

7. Purpose

Everyone has a purpose. It just needs to be discovered. When we uncover our purpose we have a whole new outlook on Life and can approach each day with vigor and resolve. This is a true Blessing that we can uncover a purpose beyond ourselves. This may be one of the major reasons we are alive. Consider what you do best, what you desire to offer the world, and how you can make a difference, and start following your purpose.

8. Free Will

It’s an amazing thing to have free will. We can make choices that better our Life and have a sense of control. In this sense, we have control over our destiny. We can also make choices that will cause us to learn from our mistakes and become a better person. We can choose to have fun and pursue our goals at the same time. We are free to choose how to live our Life despite what others may say. This is a Blessing is used appropriately.

9. Abundance

We are made to experience abundance and have our Hearts desires. The Universe does not lack in any outlet. There is enough in the World for everyone. This relates to creative ideas, wealth, and influence. The world’s abundance may not be distributed equally, but don’t let that fool you, there is enough for everyone, including you!

10. Eternity

If there is one thing that is easily overlooked in our day to day hustle and bustle is that we are Eternal Beings in an Eternal World. We are here to live our a purpose until our bodies expire. There are many beliefs about what happens after we die, but one thing that seems persistent is the Eternity of time, and we are a part of this. We are Eternal and everlasting.

11. Love and Sorrow

Our relationships, friends, and family are something to be thankful for everyday. Having someone who can give us support and allows us to experience love and affection is such a Blessing. Whenever you develop a Loving relationship realize how much of a Blessing this is. Cherish relationships in all the joy and sorrow they provide. As the saying goes, “It’s better to have Loved and lost, than to have never Loved at all.

12. Patience

When you are waiting in line, sitting in traffic, or anticipating a meeting, do you ever focus on these situations as a time to practice patience? It definitely requires a perspective shift to recognize what a blessing our ability to be patient is. Patience gives us a chance to be at Peace, experience the present moment, and remain contented in a World of immediate gratification. Next time you have an opportunity to be patient recognize it as a Blessing and use this capability.

13. Work

Work can seem like a pretty dirty word, but labor is a rewarding part of Life. I’m sure we have all complained about work at one point or another. Yet without work, where would we be? Work is the fiber of our lives, and when we find work that is fulfilling, it offers us a sense of purpose, meaning, and pride. Work is a blessing. Even if you aren’t fulfilled by your work, you can be grateful for doing good work, and for what you do well. We all have many things to be thankful for and that we can view with appreciation. Sometimes it takes a change in perceptive to find all the Blessings in disguise that surround us. Begin to incorporate some of the ideas above and consider other Blessings you may be overlooking. By doing so, it will help you develop acceptance, strength, and courage to make a better Life. Photo credit: andrea.rose

Adding more fruit and vegetables
to the diet may help people with depression.

The brain needs the right mix of nutrients to function properly.

The British Dietetic Association (BDA) outlines some dietary changes people with depression can make that may help prevent relapses:

  • eating unsaturated fats by cooking with olive or grapeseed oil and adding nuts and seeds to meals
  • avoiding trans fats found in processed meat, ready meals, cookies, and cakes
  • eating more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables
  • eating protein with tryptophan, found in fish, poultry, eggs, and spinach
  • eating oily fish containing omega-3 oils or taking omega-3 supplements at least twice a week
  • drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water a day
  • avoiding caffeinated drinks, such as coffee and soda

The Flowers We Do Not See / Another Benefit of Aspirin

“Looking at people
Angels cry,
because they are not available
to what is available to us:
a sense of the moment.”
Carlos Santana

              The Flowers we do not see.

We climb many heights,
cross many bridges,
on our path
in Life.
And in so doing,
we pass by
so many beautiful Flowers,
and so many beautiful
 People.

Unknowing,
unthinking,
our eyes
and our very Human Hearts
fail to recognize
the Gifts
God provides,
the Blessed bouquets
of Flowers and People
He Gifts
to us,
that we simply do not
see.

But it is
a choice
we make.
Awareness
is truly something
we need to become
more aware of.

Much like
all the Love
in our Hearts.

We
are simply
not aware
of all the Love
that is here,
and there,
and
everywhere.

My Dear Friends,
the words we Lovingly speak
can slowly turn
another World
to spin round and round.
Yes,
when you think
of all the Love
hidden deep inside,
is it really ever too late
to let Love
be our guide?

As you open wide
your arms
in warm embrace
of another to Love,
someone deeply in need,
the Gates of God’s Love
are flung open wide,
and the Love in your Life
is Heaven
to another in need
of Hope,
of the beautiful Flowers
planted by the seeds
of your thoughts,
of your compassionate
deeds.

“Have you ever watched a Sunrise
and felt you could not breathe?
What if it’s Him?
What if it’s God Speaking?”
– Ronnie C. Freeman. Jr.

How is it possible that such Radiance
as dwells within
can be unnoticed?
.
Let us rejoice,
that the Miracle of Beauty,
of our Heart Divine,
Loving ever thus,
beats within.

As your Life and your Love
are transfigured into
the Hopes and Dreams
of someone lost
in the space
between their thoughts,
their anguished moments,
of displeasure and pain,
can become
as a hammer
against cloth.

When somehow,
sameness is not the same,
if you play
and it’s not a game,
if Dreams
are filled with regret and pain,
please remember
the Creative Power
of all the Beautiful Love
that dwells hidden inside,
Gifted to us
from Above.

Goodnight.

“The stars are soft as Flowers,
and as near;

The hills are webs of shadow,
slowly spun;

No separate leaf or single blade is here –
All blend to one.”
Dorothy Parker

The Aspirin – Cancer Link

Taking a low-dose aspirin daily is a common prescription for those at high risk for heart attack and stroke. Research within the last few years is pointing to another possible benefit of aspirin.

When taken regularly, it may also help reduce your risk for certain cancers, particularly colon and gastrointestinal cancers. The benefits, however, may still not outweigh the risks. Check with your Doctor.

World-renowned aspirin expert Professor Peter Rothwell of Oxford University and colleagues published three studies in The Lancet journal that suggested that if you are middle-aged, taking a low-dose aspirin every day could slash your risk for various cancers in as few as 2 to 3 years! According to Rothwell, taking an aspirin a day may also help to prevent an existing localized cancer from metastasizing (spreading to other parts of the body), a finding that holds promise for current cancer patients who may likewise receive some benefit from supplementing with aspirin.

A study published this year in JAMA Oncology showed that taking a low-dose aspirin every day may lower your risk for colon cancer by 19%, your risk for gastrointestinal cancer by 15% and your overall cancer risk by 3%. The benefits appeared after 6 years of supplementation.

Senior researcher Dr. Andrew Chan, from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston explained: “That makes sense, because cancers don’t typically develop overnight. They take years to develop, so you would have to take aspirin for a long time to prevent cancer.

According to Chan, aspirin impacts particular biological pathways that can cause cancer. Aspirin also helps to lower inflammation and possibly limit the number of cancer-causing proteins in the body.

The study analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, which followed 130,000 men and women over 30 years. While no link between aspirin and a lower risk for breast, prostate, or lung cancers was found, data did seem to suggest that when aspirin was taken 2 or more times a week it might prevent 17% of colon cancer diagnoses for those not screened with a colonoscopy, and 5-8% of colon cancer cases for those who are.

Dedicated With Love To Dr. David J. Welsh / Prayer Changes The One Praying

Dedicated with all our Love
to Dr. David J. Welsh,
for all the Hope and Love and Beauty
he gives to this World.
How much we need this Gentle and Kind Soul.
In a World filled with doubt
 and turmoil and lack of Wisdom,
Dr. Welsh always remains one Beautiful Soul,
with a precious Heart that touches so very many,
too numerous to count.
.
Thank you
for being you.
.
And
THANK YOU
for being here for so many fragile Children
and their precious Parents.
You will forever Live
in our Hearts.

“Whoever saves one Life,
saves the World
entire.”
The Talmud

You enter the precious Lives
  of the needful, the confused, the conflicted,
and you give the Treasured Guidance
and Compassion and Love
we truly need.
.
God Bless You.

Only a few Wonderful Friends
of Human Kind
can bring such Wonder and Hope and Beauty
back into Life
again.

Our very fragile younger generations
do not understand
this needlessly stressful and dangerous World
that we have created,
in which so very many
struggle to survive.
And
many do not.
.
Over one million people
die by suicide Worldwide
each year.
.
They had a need to be more aware
of the hidden place inside of all of us,
the Sacred Human Heart,
that many could not see,
could not feel.
.
Through your Blessed Guidance,
Dr. Welsh,
Children find Hope,
and they learn to feel Love
in their young Lives,
as we did.

Many Children
are in need of Heartfelt advice
that they can relate to.
And your Beautiful words 
become their Songs of Salvation
that remain in so many Hearts
forever.

Through the Beautiful lessons of Life
you have shared with so many,
the most important thing in this Life
becomes learning how to give Love,
and to let Love come in
to our Hearts.
.
Love
is the only thing capable
of transforming our thoughts
and our deeds
into the positive power
of Life.
.
You,
Dr. Welsh,
are sharing the Divine Beauty
of Love.
.
Love
is gleaming from your Soul
and from your powerful Spirit.

Dr. Welsh,
you are one of the most meaningful
and most Beautiful People
this World has ever been Blessed with.

In the opinion
of myself and Mrs. Anderson,
and very, very many others
your precious Life has deeply touched,
you have no equal.

You are,
and will always be,
very Special
to all of us.
.
We thank God
for the Blessing
of your Life.


“Ask the Man
whose been around
to a hundred towns and byways,
or a thousand hills and highways
for he knows,
if the Eiffel Tower falls
or if the Bank of England closes,
your still left
with the Importance
of the Rose.”
Rod McKuen

Your Life,
Dr. Welsh,
is the Flower of Life,
the Rose,
that provides
the deep Spiritual meaning
of Hope and Salvation
for so many Children.

Thank you.

Prayer
changes the one
Praying.
.
In Prayer,
you are in the Presence of God,
as you place before Him
yourself
in confession
and in need of
His Love. 
.
There is nothing to hide
when we reach into
the deepest part of ourselves
and admit our needs
.
In Prayer
our Hearts are quieted,
the illusions of Life are stripped away,
and we enjoy being
in the Presence of God

                                 Thank you.

“Draw near to God
and He will draw near
to you.”
– James 4:8

I know
of no greater use of Time,
and no better benefit 
than Prayer.

 “Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication
with Thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.  
And the Peace of God,
which surpasses all comprehension,
shall guard your Hearts and your minds
in Christ Jesus,”
 – Phil. 4:6-7

Through Prayer
we are enabled to let go of fear
and embrace Love.
Let your mind
travel beyond your
imagination.

My Dear Friends,
if we don’t,
Life will pass us by.

“And the Soul
afraid of dying

never learns to Live.”
Amanda Mcbroom

“We must go with what we’ve got
what we’ve got,
and what were given
for a lesson in true living
watch the Rose.
For true love is like the rainbow
if your wise enough to wait
it comes again.

As you go along life’s way,
its a good thing to remember
its a long way to December,
so go slow.
Take it easy on the turns,
for the highway is sometimes rocky.
But the problems and pitfalls
help you learn.
It’s the Rose
that’s important.”

Is This Life a True Story? / Find Meaning and Hope During Times of Despair

Are we Dreaming
in
Real Time?

An Oasis
of quiet and Beautiful
Reflection
comes together,
not in the mind,
but in the Heart.

My Dear Friends,
you can fall in Love
with everything in Life,
because you are
a Child of God,
and God
is Love.
(1 John 4:7-8)

Everything God does
is impelled and influenced
by His Love.
And such
can be with
YOU.

“God abides in us
and His Love is
perfected
in us.”

Psalm 63:3

We
are all searching
for a Child,
orphaned earlier in
Life
the Child
we were,
abandoned by ourselves,
by our pride,
by our ego,
by our ignorance,
by Time.

We were left
in a social orphanage,
with other Children
eager to be adopted
by thoughts
of being
all grown up.

My Friends,
sometimes it takes
a long time
for us to truly
grow up,
and become
a Child again.

                 Become a Child again.

It takes Time
to more fully realize,
we may be Dreaming
in
Real Time.

Our Birth
is never ending.
We are Birthed
into each new Day
with the rising
of the Sun.
Every Dawn
is the Gift of a new beginning.
Every Dream
is the Dawn
of Deliverance
into a new awareness,
a new World,
a new Way.

There is only
one thing
more Beautiful
than the Birth
of a Child.
And that
is re-Birth.

“For you have been Born again,
not of seed which is perishable
but imperishable,
that is,
through the Living and Enduring

Word of God.”
1 Peter 1:23

The memory
of the Life we live,
can be sweet.
In our Dreams
we can come
together.
We can finally
realize,
there is no real
me,
without real Love.
.
There is knowing and accepting
that you are you,
and I am
me.
And in coming together,
with Compassion and Love,
we can Truly become
WE.

.And
if we accept
each other
with unconditional Love,
we can come to better understand
the depth
of God’s Love
for us.

Let your Children
teach you.
Then you will know
how to Love,
too.

Time
does not
make us older.
Our failure
to Love
will age us.
What we have
never done
for others,
will too.

.For Time
may not
exist.
And neither will
YOU,
without
ever knowing
Love.

Things
that never change,
come what may,
remind us
of the Love
God harbors
for all
of His Children
in the Harvest
to come.

Hope
has everything to do
with the
Human Heart.

Goodnight.

“When I am down and,
oh my Soul,
so weary;
When troubles come and my Heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong,
When I am on
your shoulders.”

Brendan Graham

“When we are no longer able
to change a situation –
we are challenged to change
ourselves.”

Viktor E. Frankl

.
In the face of an uncertain and chaotic World we will encounter difficult moments full of worry, stress, and frustration. It is exhausting to push through challenging times in Life, but when we remain resilient and persevere it can be an experience that changes us for the better.
.
There are certain circumstances and experiences that we simply have to accept and cope with. One major way to promote courage and determination to face these obstacles is to find meaning in negative life events. The ability to make sense of our struggles and bounce back from stress is an important function in dealing with Life effectively and maintaining a sense of well-being. We can endure anything when we have a compelling reason to do so. Here are ten ways to make meaning and cope when life seems grim.

1. Evaluate purpose and Life goals

Having a clear life purpose is an important factor for making sense of life events. When we know what we want, obstacles are less obtrusive and our direction is evident. Life purpose and clear goals help with understanding the self and one’s place in the world. When life throws a curve ball it’s a perfect opportunity to bolster or alter your purpose and goals.

2. Freedom to choose and responsibility to persist

Knowing that we always have a choice is an empowering realization. However we also have responsibilities if we are to live a virtuous and meaningful life. A meaningful Life involves a conviction for what is just and honorable, and finding a balance between our free will and responsibilities is an important dichotomy to learn about. Giving up may not be an option.

3. The right and wrong pathways to happiness

As we go through life we encounter many risk-factors that steal our joy and many protective factors that improve our happiness. We gain wisdom about what leads to happiness and if we have learned from life experiences we know what will allow us to experience greater well-being and what limits our contentment and satisfaction. Pay attention to how your choices influence your well-being.

4. Courage to accept your constraints

It can be tough to not have the talent, skills, or resources to accomplish what we desire, but being able to accept our weaknesses and current level of development is the exact next step to raising the bar. It takes courage to acknowledge what we lack but when we embrace our fallacies it provides us a freedom to take control of our decisions and move beyond our constraints.

5. Faith and Belief in a better future

No matter what we go through keeping hope that our future will be bright allows us to persist and persevere. When we keep faithful and optimistic it allows us to stay motivated and driven to finish what we started. When unexpected tragedy occurs we must acknowledge that stress and grief does not last forever.

6. Commitment to growth

Every experience is a learning opportunity. No matter how difficult or painful a situation may be, we are able to use the experience to expand and grow our awareness and understanding. This commitment is how we become a stronger, wiser, and more gracious person. Allow pain to mold and shape your character honorably.

7. Discovering the hidden side of self and new frontiers of Life

Some of the most profound self-knowledge comes from the most difficult moments. When we are confronted with the reality of who we are and how we are living it broadens the horizon for how life can be and what is most important. We learn what we are truly capable of, and the inner strength we possess during arduous times.

8. The power of altruism, empathy, compassion, and generosity

One of most powerful ways to develop a sense of meaning and cope with our struggles is to step outside of ourselves and be of service to others. When we can put ourselves in another person’s shoes it helps us transcend beyond our own problems and concerns. Tragic moments are often the exact experience that allows us to cultivate compassion and empathy for others.

9. Gaining wisdom to solve problems

When I consider the wisest people I know, they are the ones who have had the broadest and most profound life encounters. They also used these experiences to reflect on what life is really all about. We are all able to alter our perspective and grow more intelligent about how we live Life but asking ourselves wise questions. Is this doing any good? Should I do more of it? Should I try another strategy?

10. Appreciating what you have

Even when Life feels out of control and we can’t imagine ever reaching our goals there is much to be grateful for. There is always someone in a worse circumstance that is willing to live with joy and grace. Be willing to acknowledge what you do have and what you appreciate about yourself, relationships, and community. Pain is never easy to deal with. It may feel heavier than we can bare, but when we push through the pain by finding meaning and purpose we can continue living with clarity, direction, and passion. Remember that your human spirit can still shine even through the darkest chapters of your life.

“The greatest Faith
is born in the hour of despair.
When we can see no Hope
and no way out,
then Faith rises
and brings the Victory.”

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

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

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

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

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

“The great Beauty of Life
is its Mystery,

the inability to know
what course our Life will take,

and diligently work to transmute
into our final form,

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

eliminates regret.”
K. J. Oldster

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

What is Life?

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

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

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

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

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

“Why
do we resist the Mystery
that change brings?

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

Dennis Merritt Jones

      There is so much more to Life, than Living.

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

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

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

There is
so much more
to Life,
than Living.

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

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

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

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

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

                           Garden of Living Treasures

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

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

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

Beyond this day
appears the Dawn of
Hope.

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

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

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

Such is the Power

of Love.

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

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

We truly are
Blessed.

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

Goodnight.

Coping with the Fear

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

Posted Mar 09, 2020 in Psychology Today

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

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

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