Dedicated to my very dear friend,
Dr. Nelson F. Eichman
.
How do you put into words how you feel
for the man you most admire in this world.

A Man for All Seasons,
An Inspiration and a wonderful, trusted Friend.
On his Sacred Mission
To Help Us, One and All,
He truly Succeeded.
Your Life Is such a Beautiful Blessing
To everyone.

We Love you
and

Thank You.

sunset

            We cannot imagine as dreams come true.

We are not
Who we seem to be,
We,
Reflections of
Sacred Geometry.

sunset 4

                    Extraordinary, the creation of man

Loved into being,
God whispered your name.
Breath of Life
Loving thought,
Tender deed,
Were you created,
Became.

Extraordinary,
The creation of man.
From the dust of the ground
A living, breathing being,
A Soul,
Loving and Loved,
A Child of God,
A Man.
(Genesis 2:7)

sunset 10

The Heart Divine no longer remembers, set free from deep regrets.

God Blesses each of us,
As He Dreams away our lives.
And Forever is a day,
As it is Given,
We are born again,
Me and you,
Into the next life,
Such that we cannot imagine
As dreams come true.

Forever In the Bright Morning Light Of God’s Eternal Love.

While you dream,
You know not
That you are Dreaming.
And awake,
May be living a Dream.

sunset 12

                      We are not who we seem to be.

We sculpt the future
With our imagination,
What we perceive to be.
And by our transgressions,
Forget that I am me.

In the act of forgiving
The mind is Blessed,
As it forgets.
The Heart Divine
No longer remembers,
Set free from deep regrets.

sunset 8

           We sculpt the future with our imagination.

The Love of God
Is like a raging
River of Light,
Carrying Salvation
Into the dark
Pit of Night.

sunset 14

           Loving and Loved, a Child of God, a Man.

So this life, this Dream,
From which we awake one day,
Will find us forgiven,
Should we ask to be,
And forever
In the Bright Morning Light
Of God’s Eternal Love.

And breathless will we be,
In Love
With Love,
Eternally.

Goodnight.

sunset final

                                    Forever is a day.

What is the Meaning of Life?
by Australian Biologist Jeremy Griffith
read more

Science has finally enabled us
to lift the so-called ‘burden of guilt’ from the Human race;
in fact, to understand that we thinking,
‘knowledge’ – finding, conscious Humans
are actually nothing less than
the Heroes of the Story of Life on Earth!

This is because our fully conscious mind is surely
Nature’s greatest invention
and to have had to endure the torture of being
unjustly condemned as evil for so long
(the anthropological evidence indicates we humans have been fully conscious for some two million years)
must make us the absolute Heroes of the Story of Life on Earth.

Finally,
God and man, Religion and science, our instinct and intellect,
the integrative meaning of life
and the inconsistency of our behavior with that meaning,
are all reconciled.

This explanation of the Human condition is redeeming
and thus rehabilitating,
all our upset angry, egocentric and alienated behavior
now subsides, bringing about the complete
TRANSFORMATION OF THE HUMAN RACE
and importantly, understanding of the Human condition
doesn’t condone ‘bad’ behavior,
it heals
and by so doing ends it.

From being competitive, selfish and aggressive,
Humans return to being cooperative, selfless and
Loving.

Our round of departure has ended.
The poet T.S. Eliot wonderfully articulated
our species’ journey
from an original innocent, yet ignorant, state,
to a psychologically upset ‘fallen’, corrupted state,
and back to an uncorrupted, but this time enlightened,
state when he wrote:

‘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.”

Little Gidding, 1942

Finding the exonerating, redeeming understanding of our dark, psychologically upset, meaning of life-defying, Human-condition-afflicted existence finally enables the Human race
to be healed
and thus TRANSFORMED
it makes us ‘whole’ again, as Carl Jung said it would.

To quote Professor Harry Prosen,
a former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association,
on this dreamed-of,
greatest of all breakthroughs in science:

‘I have no doubt this Biological explanation
of the Human condition
is the Holy Grail of insight
we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation
of the Human race’
(FREEDOM, 2016, Introduction)

The Memory, the Magic, the Mystery / The Healing Power of Laughter / Sept. 4: Classes resume

                 Endless in its Beauty

At every crossroad
we have a choice.
We travel in one
direction
or another,
never knowing
we are all lost
in the vast void
of timeless space.

Timeless
in the moment,
without form
in the now
to be,
and truly ageless
in our search for Love,
our Love for Life,
and for one another.

“The end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place
for the first time.”
– T. S. Eliot
.

And then one day
we come to see
God,
in His Love
for all there ever was,
and all there is
to ever be.

We each live
for but a moment,
just one brief moment,
the moment
when we realize
the Heart of God
beats within
every lonely
Life
in search of Love,
and longing
to be.

       Dog-leaping Happiness                        (Our precious Lila, shortly before she departed us in this Life)

In the Sacred Time
of that moment
lives the memory,
the magic,
the Mystery
of Life
and Living.

“I am almost a hundred years old;
waiting for the end,
and thinking about the beginning.

Meg Rosoff

Meg Rosoff

There are things I need to tell you,
but would you listen if I told you
how quickly time passes?

I know you are unable to imagine this.

Nevertheless,
I can tell you that you will awake someday
to find that your life
has rushed by at a speed
at once impossible and cruel.

The most intense moments
will seem to have occurred only yesterday
and nothing
will have erased the pain and pleasure,

the impossible intensity of Love
and its dog-leaping Happiness,
the bleak blackness of passions unrequited,
or unexpressed, or unresolved.”
Meg Rosoff

                  Endless in its Beauty.

My Dear Friends,
the Love of God
will never let you go.
In His Arms
you can never
be alone.

His Love
bears the Torch
to Light the Way.
It restores
all Life
to another day.

Do not let
your thoughts
close the door
to your precious Heart,
for only it may see
the Rainbow
through a rain of tears
that promises
not in vain,
to return God’s Love
again and again.

                           Endless . . .

From the Sacred ground
blossoms all Life,
endless in its Beauty,
now
and to be.

In Nature,
the end
is the beginning.
And so it is
with us.
With our Mother
Earth,
and God as our
Father,
in mind and in memory,
and in all things that matter,
every moment is
resurrected,
and Life and Love
go on.

In God’s Love
there is no
loss,
only what is
found.

And,
there is rest
for the weary
Soul.

poet Cecelia Weir

Cecelia Weir

“There is Rest For The Weary,
True rest for the Soul.
Troubles, trials and tribulations.
Yes, the agony of time
As Eternity rolls.

Faith is the key.
Prayer is the answer.
And God got it all in control.
If you’ll just go to Him,
And talk as you stroll along,
The relief will begin to surface
And you Heart will be made strong.

Be encouraged in this Life
For there can be Happiness
Right here on Earth.
Despite its pain,
Its misery and its strife.
The good Lord loves you
He sees, He knows, and He cares.
If we but only trust Him

For He is Love..
And He is Light….
He’ll be your Light.
He’ll be your Guide.
For He’s always there
Right by your side.
Live in your Soulful rest.
That the Heartfelt ease
Will give you Life at its best.
Rest, rest, in the Lord.
For He is..
Rest
For The Weary.”
– Cecelia Weir

                     The Sun restores Life.

As our Lives
return a borrowed day,
let us Pray.
The Sun restores Life
in its ray,
and keeps God’s promise
of another new day.

“There is an ecstasy
that marks the summit of life,
and beyond which Life cannot rise.
And such is the paradox of living,
this ecstasy comes when one is most alive,
and it comes as a complete forgetfulness
that one is alive.
This out of all will remain.

They have lived and have tossed:
So much of the game will be gain,
Though the gold of the dice
has been lost.”
– Jack London (Love of Life)
.
The crystal mirror
of our memory,
sometimes with painful longing,
sometimes with delight,
invites us to return,
to never leave again
the Beauty of Love
lost along the way,
never fully knowing
that this moment,
and the last,
are one.

Goodnight.

Laughter Therapy
click here to read more

“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”
E. E. Cummings

What is laughter therapy?

We were born with the gift of laughter. Laughter is a natural medicine. It lifts our spirits and makes us feel happy. Laughter is a contagious emotion. It can bring people together. It can help us feel more alive and empowered.

Laughter therapy, also called humor therapy, is the use of humor to promote overall health and wellness. It aims to use the natural physiological process of laughter to help relieve physical or emotional stresses or discomfort.

Research supporting laughter therapy

A growing body of research supports the theory that laughter may have therapeutic value.

For years, the use of humor has been used in medicine. Surgeons used humor to distract patients from pain as early as the 13th century. Later, in the 20th century, came the scientific study of the effect of humor on physical wellness. Many credit this to Norman Cousins. After years of prolonged pain from a serious illness, Cousins claims to have cured himself with a self-invented regimen of laughter and vitamins. In his 1979 book Anatomy of an Illness, Cousins describes how watching comedic movies helped him recover.

Over the years, researchers have conducted studies to explore the impact of laughter on health. After evaluating participants before and after a humorous event (i.e., a comedy video), studies have revealed that episodes of laughter helped to reduce pain, decrease stress-related hormones and boost the immune system in participants.

Today more than ever before, people are turning to humor for therapy and healing. Medical journals have acknowledged that laughter therapy can help improve quality of life for patients with chronic illnesses. Many hospitals now offer laughter therapy programs as a complementary treatment to illness.

The Healing Power of Laughter

For people living with cancer, it may seem strange to find humor when facing such serious issues. Yet, laughter may be helpful in ways you may not have realized or imagined.

Laughter may help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. Laughter may be a natural diversion. When you laugh, no other thought comes to mind. Laughing may also induce physical changes in the body. After laughing for only a few minutes, you may feel better for hours.

When used in addition to conventional cancer treatments, laughter therapy may help in the overall healing process.

According to some studies, laughter therapy may provide physical benefits, such as helping to:

  • Enhance oxygen intake
  • Stimulate the heart and lungs
  • Relax muscles throughout the body
  • Trigger the release of endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers)
  • Ease digestion/soothe stomach aches
  • Relieve pain
  • Balance blood pressure
  • Improve mental functions (i.e., alertness, memory, creativity)

Laughter therapy may also help to:

  • Improve overall attitude
  • Reduce stress/tension
  • Promote relaxation
  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance quality of life
  • Strengthen social bonds and relationships
  • Produce a general sense of well-being

Laughter therapy at CTCA

At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we fight cancer using an integrative approach. Our Mind-Body Medicine Department offers supportive options, including laughter therapy, to help you cope as you receive conventional cancer treatments.

Laughter therapy strives to help you use and enjoy laughter as a tool for healing. Dr. Katherine Puckett, Chief of the Division of Mind-Body Medicine at CTCA®, first introduced laughter therapy at our Illinois hospital upon a patient’s request.

CTCA offers humor therapy sessions, also known as Laughter Clubs or humor groups, to help cancer patients and their families use and enjoy laughter as a tool for healing. These leader-led groups take patients through a number of laugh-related exercises, including fake laughter and laughter greetings.

Laughter Club is based not on humor or jokes, but rather on laughter as a physical exercise. One group laughter exercise involves patients standing in a circle, with the leader in the middle. Patients put their fingertips on their cheekbones, chest or lower abdomen and make “ha ha” or “hee hee” sounds until they feel vibrations through their bodies. Dr. Puckett says that, during these exercises, it is hard for people not to join in because laughter is so contagious.

According to Dr. Puckett, at the end of a laughter therapy session, patients have said things like “I didn’t even think about cancer during Laughter Club” and “That felt great! Things have been so hard that we hadn’t laughed in months.” Dr. Puckett adds that the 8-year-old daughter of a CTCA patient who attended Laughter Club said afterwards: “I never thought about laughing every day, but now I realize I can. Like even when I don’t feel happy, I can still laugh and feel better.”

“To enable someone to laugh
is much like
giving them
a bouquet of beautiful
Flowers.”
–  Wm. C. Anderson

Our Story of No Greater Gift / Be a Honey and Save the Honey Bees / Monday and Tuesday: Julius Caesar Production at School

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky.
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.
Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.”
– John McCrae May 1915

The Story of Mankind,
OUR story,
may end
unlike it began.

  “This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper.”
– T. S. Eliot
The Hollow Men

My Dear Friends,
the precious Gift
of Freedom,
is given to us,
each and every one,
by those who sacrificed
everything:
their Freedom,
their deep longing to Live,
all the Love that Life
could bring,
the Beauty
of every Spring,
yes,
everything.

And now,
thanks to them,
this day begins
everything.

The pathway forward.

The past
permeates through
YOU
and me,
as we cruise
into this Life
with many Sails
unfurled.

The Brave
do not lie quietly
in their Sacred Graves.
They are
alive
in YOU.
With every shout
of Joy,
with every Blessed moment
to remember,
they quietly celebrate
the Life
you live,
that they give
to you.

        Time is not a natural feature of our Universe.

So breathe deeply
and say a quiet
Prayer,
a Prayer of Thanksgiving,
for the most precious Gift
you will ever receive,
the Gift of Freedom
and Life.

“Greater Love
hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life
for his friends.”
John 15:13

The Oceans
of their deep and abiding
Love
break upon every
shore.

Deep
in the Forest
of our ideals and ideas,
where our Heart glows,
we live
in this day
and in yesterday.

Their Sacred Sacrifice,
a still Living, breathing thing,
is the Freedom
that can be found,
to be more profound,
than any other
thing on Earth

And now,
let us take time
for reflection.

If
in this day
all is ending,
without Tomorrow,
the past never happened.
The sacrifices
never made.
Without Tomorrow,
there is no Today.
And without this day,
Tomorrow shall never
be.

We are
that we are,
and what will be,
or never be.

The Love of your Child is the way.

Our precious children
are the Seeds that spring to Life
in the Sacred soil
of Freedom,
purchased at the price
of so much sorrow,
suffering and death.

The Love
of your Child
is the way
to remember and Honor
all those who suffered and died
in war.

Let us Honor
their sacrifice
and make the darkness bright.
Let us bear the Truth
and the Light.
They are calling
in the night,
like a Candle very bright,
to give our Children
Hearts
for Love
alone.

Jean-Paul Sartre

If existence
precedes essence,
then our essence
precedes
our further existence.
  But the essence of a thing
is far more fundamental,
more immutable than its
existence.
.

The pathway forward
is beneath
our feet.
Let us
search for it
with our minds,
and follow it
with our Hearts.

What leads us
to Tomorrow
is the Light
of Today.
And that Light,
the Light of Love,
must be seen
by everyone.

As we
open our eyes
and peer into
the Hearts of others,
we see
more clearly.

                         There must be no more War.

The specter of
Hope
resonates throughout
History.
But the History
of all Mankind
is one tragedy
followed
by another.
The chapters
are marked
by
war after war.

But Today,
there must be
no more,
no more
War.

Down the mountain side
we will fall,
into a valley hushed
and white with snow.
No one will be here,
in the bright Light
of the Sun to tell
of our journey upward,
with sweeter songs
that accompanied us.
For what was unknown
became real,
and what then was real
became, with us,
unknown:
a potential existence
that stilled every voice
that sang every song.

“But of the tree of the
knowledge

of good and EVIL,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof,
thou shalt surely
die.”

– Genesis 2:17

Life
without the deep and abiding
reflection of Love,
simply
cannot exist,
cannot prevail.

kawalows

The deep and abiding reflection of Love.

Unknowing
becomes known
because you exist.
But you are here
because of the
Love
that also existed.

Time is not
a natural feature
of our Universe.
It is a concept
invented by us,
we, so Human in being.

There may be no past behind us,
or physical future waiting
in the wings.

Nature
does not defend
the right to cry.
But cry we will
late into our night.
For the reality
of Being
resides within each
Heart.
And so it was,
and always has
been.

Cherish the mind
that has a
Heart.

Goodnight.

                   YOU may not give a Hoot. But I do!

“Little Fly,
Thy summer’s play
My thoughtless hand
Has brushed away.
Am I not like thee?
Or art not thou A man like Me?
For I dance and drink and sing,
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.”
William Blake

How mowing your lawn less
could help save the B
ees
read more

By Chaffin Mitchell, AccuWeather staff writer

If you forget to mow your grass for a couple of weeks, it turns out you might be doing a favor for the environment.

New research by the USDA Forest Service and partners funded by the National Science Foundation found that mowing the lawn less frequently can significantly improve pollinator habitat.

Susannah Lerman, a research ecologist with the USDA Forest Service’s Northern Research Station, and her collaborators studied whether different lawn mowing frequencies (one, two or three weeks) influenced bee abundance and diversity in herbicide-free suburban yards in Springfield, Massachusetts.

“Mowing lawns less frequently provides an additional opportunity for householders to support bee conservation,” Lerman said.

Green spaces in urban residential yards could provide suitable habitats for pollinators.

“Mowing less frequently is practical, economical and a time-saving alternative to lawn replacement or even planting pollinator gardens,” Lerman said.

Frequent mowing inhibits the growth of “weedy” species which include dandelions and clover.

Since widespread population declines of bees and other pollinators from habitat loss are a growing concern, spontaneous flowers such as dandelions and clover could provide pollen and nectar sources throughout the growing season.

The team experimentally tested whether different lawn mowing frequencies of one, two or three weeks influenced bee abundance and diversity in 16 suburban western Massachusetts yards by increasing lawn floral resources.

“Lawn-dominated yards, when mowed less frequently and not treated with chemicals, can support surprisingly high numbers of bees and species diversity,” Lerman said.

At the Anderson School, we allow the front 2 acres of our property to blossom into beautiful Wild Flowers each Spring and Summer. This is to assist our resident Honey Bees to survive and thrive. We keep a hive for them at the back of the property – and Thank You Carter and Dad, Travis, for the new Honey Bee Hive! It is beautiful. The word buzzing around is: They Love It!!  Our Honey Bees always Beehave and truly Beelong. We Love them very much and cherish what they do for us.

My Dear Friends, please reserve some space at your home for these very precious Gifts from God. Be a Honey and help a Honey Bee.

The Silence Between Our Thoughts / Best Supplements to Fight Cancer / Atex Trash Service / Friday: Civil War Museum / Important Dates

In the silence
between our thoughts,
we share
the Unity of Life.

And in the Union
of our Spirits,
the place where we
arrive,
is where we
start.

“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.”
– T. S. Eliot

The Voice
of the Hidden
is like
the crest of a Wave
before it crashes
upon the shores
of our awareness.

Not known,
it was never looked for,
not heard
in the silence
between two halves
of the whole.

                  The silence between our thoughts.

“It is in
the Silence between our thoughts
that we access our highest creativity,
our deepest intuitions
and our most profound
Joys.”
Mark Bunn

Within ourselves
we carry the Essence
of all
that has been,
all that exists,
all that is
Humanity’s Birthright,
and ALL the Hope
that persists.

We share
ONE Life,
one Cosmic Intelligence,
one first breath,
and
one dying wish –
that we truly
Lived,
that we exhausted
our very brief Existence.

“Life is a great big canvas,
and you should throw
all the paint on it you can.
Danny Kaye

                Everything in Nature.

 We
may be unwilling,
or unable,
to envision the Unity
of Life.
But we truly are ONE
with every Human Being,
every Creature that crawls
upon the Sacred Earth,
everything in Nature,
every day,
in many, many
ways.

The atoms
which compose our Being
are interchanging
with every other
Living Thing.

“Your physical body
walks in the World of Matter,
but a subtler aspect of you,
woven within and throughout
your physical body,

moves and interacts on a level
of pure energy.”
one-mind-one-energy.com

            We share.

We share the
Light of Life
transformed of the
Sun.
We share the Hopes
and Dreams
of everyone.

“Science shows us
that everything is made up of energy.
It´s the building block of all matter.
The same energy that composes your body
is the same one that composes
the bricks of the house you live in, your car, your phone,
animals, trees and so forth.
It´s all the same.
It´s constantly “flowing”
and changing FORM
all the time.
This is the
Universal Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy.”

We share
the spoils of Peace,
violently torn from wars
seemingly never done,
and share the Music of Life
from songs
never sung.

“Science cannot
solve the Ultimate Mystery of Nature.
And that is because,
in the last analysis, we ourselves are…
part of the mystery
that we are trying to solve”.
Max Planck

But,
from the chaos
inextricably woven into
the Fabric
of what seems to be,
or may not be,
we are truly
ONE.

        The Fabric of what seems to be.

Long lost,
we have found
all Truths
have a Time and Place,
all Prayers
come into
God’s Grace.

“We may not
impossibly be
ONE mask of many
worn by the
Great Face behind.”
Thomas Hardy 

Perhaps,
the purpose of our Life,
of all Life,
is to make
the unconscious,
conscious.
And if these are
one and the same,
one may seem to lead to
the other
and back again,
arrive
where it started,
or in another dimension,
be its Brother.

In our Communion
with God,
we may discover
our immersion in the
Universal Love
of ALL.

My Dear Friends,
God is Love.
And His Love
resides
in you.

In the end,
we may arrive
where we started,
as God’s Eternal Love
crashes upon the shores
of OUR awareness,
and we come know our place
in His Heart,
for the first
Time.

Goodnight.

“Everything
in the unconscious
seeks outward manifestation,
and the personality too
desires to evolve out
of its unconscious conditions
and to experience itself
as a Whole.”
C. G. Jung

12 of the best supplements
to fight cancer

Certain bioactive compounds, found in foods, are known to have strong epigenetic (cancer correcting) benefits. Supplements concentrate those benefits.

Dr. Young S. Kim of the National Cancer Institute studied Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) which lie at the heart of cancers. She showed in her 2012 research that a poor diet could help CSCs re-grow into a full tumor again after chemotherapy had reduced it by even 70 per cent.

However, she also showed that certain bio-active compounds could prevent this re-growth. She talked of suforaphanes, curcumin, pipeline, vitamins A and E, genistein, theanine, choline, EGCG from green tea and others and she went on to add that you could obtain from quality supplements. Who are we to argue?

Although European and American research has shown a ´small but significant´ prevention factor (of about 7 per cent), we are not going to recommend you take a multivitamin and mineral if you already have the disease. Why? because the vitamins are usually synthetic and deficient, and the minerals include iron, which is known to HELP cancer cells thrive.

We think there are much stronger compounds to take:

1: FISH OILS
The number 1 supplement. Long chain omega 3 is essential for cellular health, control of local inflammation, longevity and much, much more. Research shows supplementation, because it is daily and dose-controlled, actually provides more benefit than eating oily fish. Fish oils reduce the risk of cachexia, and can reduce polyps, the precursors to colorectal cancer.

2: SELENIUM
Helps displace heavy metals from the body. Anti-oxidant mineral recognized more and more as essential in the fight against cancer; for example, German research shows it lowers prostate cancer risk.

3: VITAMIN E
Powerful immune system booster. But take a natural form that ideally combines all 4 tocopherols and all 4 tocotrienols. You simply cannot eat the daily quantities shown to be effective in scientific studies.

4: CHLORELLA
Rather than take vitamin A, go for superfood chlorella. People simply do not eat enough ´greens´, and chlorella is a ´super-green´. Wonderful source of both natural cis- and trans-beta-carotene, minerals and vitamin B-12, especially important if you employ a meat-free diet. This is how to get your vitamin A; your body will make what it wants from beta-carotene.

5: VITAMIN D
If you cannot get a couple of hours in the sunshine every day, you should consider supplementation of 5000IUs, as recommended by Harvard medical School. This vitamin is actually a hormone and has been shown to activate the immune system, reduce the risk of cancer and even correct cancer cells in research studies.

6: COENZYME Q10
Research shows antioxidant, anti-ageing, anti-cancer benefits levels in tissues decline as you age. Essential to your mitochondria, U.S. research clearly shows you can recapture the levels of your youth by supplementation. Max 50 mgs a day. Above is wasted.

7: GRAPE SEED EXTRACT
Shown in the American VITAL study to be the top anti-oxidant commonly available. It is an OPC, and Pine Bark Extract (another OPC but not in the research study) may be even better.

8: CURCUMIN
Equal with vitamin D and fish oils. Research shows a variety of health benefits; an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, this spice (Turmeric) seems to play a strong role in a number of anti-cancer pathways, and in other illnesses too. Prof. Aggarwal of MD Anderson claims he does not know a cancer it does not have a positive effect against. Take with olive oil and black pepper (pipeline) for maximum absorption.

9: B COMPLEX
B Vitamins are essential for correct cellular division and replication apart from playing a role in the nervous system and many of the senses. A  pre-cursor to diseases like Alzheimer´s and cancer has been shown to be the build up of Homocystein levels in the body. B Vitamins can keep this under control. Normally your gut bacteria MAKE your B vitamins (if you feed them fibrous foods). But after antibiotics and chemo, your gut bacteria will not be functioning properly.

10: RESVERATROL
Seems to play a prevention role in everything from dementia to strokes to cancer. It is now known to act as a pro drug with the CYP1B1 gene in cancer cells. The gene turns it in to picetannol which kills the cancer cell. Research is coming thick and fast on this natural compound found in organic red grape skins.

11. MODIFIED CITRUS PECTIN
Again, new research abounds on the abilities of this compound to block the ´velcro patches´ on the outside of cancer cells, reducing their abilities to stick to each other and to new tissues. This reduces metastases.

12. INDOLE 3 CARBINOL
I3C can convert aggressive oestradiol into a safer sister, and even modify oestrogen receptor sites on cells (much like Tamoxifen) and prevent dangerous oestrogens binding there. But it also works against non-oestrogenic cancers via the pathway. Research shows clear benefits in Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

It is important that you look for a source of naturally-sourced supplements. Many cheaper products are synthetic and limited in their content. Some research studies have indicated such synthetic products have dubious abilities. If you have already decided to supplement, you may want to see what supplements are available on www.ournaturalselection.com (in the UK) who supply all natural products.

When Forever is Too Long / Friday Trip: Flight Deck

“It is here we must begin to seek
the wisdom of the Children

and the graceful way of Flowers
in the Wind.

– John Denver

spectacular-sun

Whatever is truly Real is projected.

The Story of Life
may be happy or sad,
one of being lonely
or with another you truly Love.
It may be truth
or become fiction,
real
or unreal.

But the stories
of our Lives
have something in common:
the journey
has nothing to do
with you,
and everything to do
with your Heart.

“You will know the Truth,
and the Truth will
set you free.”

– John 8:32

Feeling alone,
being the only one
who knows your vision
of Truth,
of Beauty,
of the Reality of your precious existence,
makes the world around you
appear
very, very small.

Your Sacred World
can appear so small
that it,
and you,
disappear.

sunset-z-b-c

Yes,
the solitary Heart
can be imprisoned
is very small room
indeed.

And the sadness
you may feel,
is your Heart
asking to be
reborn,
to be let free,
introduced
to the World.

“A strange passion
is moving in my head.
My Heart has become
a Bird
which searches in the Sky.
Every part of me
goes off in different directions.
Is it really so
that the one I Love
is Everywhere?”
– Rumi

Your Life
is a much larger picture
than you can ever imagine.

You
are not just someone small
that fits into a bigger picture,
a three dimensional
biological design
intended to look like a
person.

red-sun-c

Do not wait forever for the Love Bird’s song.

My Dear Friend,
YOU
are the picture
.

“A taste of love
will linger after

I know the meaning
of all that I see.”
– John Barry

How unbelievable it is
that the one You Love
is Everyone,
and You
are everywhere.

 “Wisdom
will enter your heart,
and Knowledge
will fill you with
Joy.”

– Proverbs 2:10

Reality
is centered
in
the Human Heart
that beats within.

stairs

           YOU are the picture.

The preponderance of Biblical passages,
speak of the ‘Heart’ as the
central,
defining
element of the Human person.

Whatever is truly Real
is projected
from
your Heart and Mind
and out into the vast Universe
of experience.

“Watch over your heart
with all diligence,
for from it flow
the Springs of Life.”
– Proverbs 4: 23
.
You do not absorb
what is Real.
You are
what is Real.

triangles

What you feel
coming toward you,
is really what resides
deep within you.

Do not wait forever
for the Love Bird’s song.
Forever
is too long.
Listen carefully,
and you will hear,
music is in this moment
it is here
and it is there,
near
and far,
it is everywhere.

water-b

    You are the wind and the rain.

The Beauty
of the moment
is what we are.

“Each moment
contains a hundred messages
from God.”
– Rumi

You are
the wind and the rain,
the soil and the sky.
Yesterday,
tear drops
in your eyes
fell from on high,
to nourish the Flowers
you hold
in your hand
today.

Eternal Waters
flow from streams
to a mighty sea,
and they flow
through you
and me.

water-2

Eternal Waters flow.

Life
that is held so dear,
did appear
in days of yesteryear,
to be something else
of Beauty today.
And tomorrow
is another day
to Cherish Life
Eternally.

“Just as the water in a wave
is not itself changed
by the wave’s motion.

Unchanging,
the Self is the silent knower
of all that appears in our experience.”
– Peter Russell
(read more)

Though every thread
in the Fabric of Life
may be torn,
it may be
mended,
it may again be
worn.

world

Your Heart is asking to be introduced to the World.

 Forgiveness,
and the gentle
ways of Love,
are the messages
from within,
from Above,
from One
who Truly Loves you,
the Father
of us all.

The Wisdom
of Human eloquence
emanates from
the Holy Word
of God.

To Love this World
and everything in it,
is to fill the Universe
with the Essence
of your Being.

raindrops-b

 The Beauty of the moment is what we are.

Love
enables you
to know
just how vast,
how unimaginably large
the Universe of our
awareness
can be.

Beheld
in the eyes of another,
your World
of Love
and deep compassion,
becomes a Universe,
unfathomable to behold,
Beautiful beyond belief,
numberless in victory
without knowing defeat,
and all the while your Heart races
so fast,
it skips a beat.

night-wind

There are those
in this World
that would have you believe
all free will is but an illusion.
But you are free
to open up
your mind,
by simply opening up
your Heart.

My Dear Friends,
we are so much more
than the physical,
because the physical
is the last aspect
of the process
of the Creation
of who we are.

“If seeds in the black earth
can turn into such Beautiful roses,
what might not the Heart of man become
in its long journey
toward the stars?” 
–  G.K. Chesterton 

Believe
in yourself.
Believe
in each other.
Believe
and Trust
in the Word of God.

orange-flowers

You are
a deeply Loved Child
of God.

My Friend,
God is Love.
And so are
You.

Goodnight.

The Fingerprints of God / Food Sources of Insanity / Friday: Museum of the Americas

Dedicated with my Love, tears and Prayers
to the treasured memory of Elizabeth Ann “Betty” Gaul
December 13, 1926 – January 28, 2016,
pictured below with her precious daughter
Judy Weis.

My Love for you is Eternal,
My tears ever flowing,
And my Prayers are of
Thanksgiving.

Thank you Lord,
for such a beautiful
and Loving
Friend.
She has been a treasured Blessing
in my Life
and so very many others.

betty

Betty became a Light in the Heart of everyone, a beautiful Flower in the Garden of God’s Grace.

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

– T.S. Eliot

   You are given beautiful gifts from God.

We think
We pick Flowers,
The Flowers we gather
For someone we Love.

But no.
As real as our strange world
May appear to be,
We model the world we experience
In our mind.
OrbisonIllusionWhich has led some to think
That existence, as we know it,
May be an illusion,
And our reality
Isn’t really real.

This results from scientific investigations
Telling us
That everything we know
Is merely a construction
In our minds,
What we humans perceive
As reality in the world
Around us,
May be no more than
An illusion of thought.

It has far reaching
Implications.

But these implications
Are far more reaching
Than we are capable
Of ever understanding.

Ontology is the philosophical study
Of the nature of being,
Becoming, existence, or reality.
It was called “first philosophy” by Aristotle
in Book IV of his Metaphysics.

My Precious Friends,
As we explore
The nature of being,
Let us choose JOY today,
By not leaning only upon
Our own understanding,
But by having childlike trust
In our Loving Creator’s omniscience.

Allow Him to direct your path,
Which will lead to ultimate joy,
And make your journey,
Even when laden with sorrow,
Joyful.

“As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;
as poor, yet making many rich;
as having nothing,
and yet possessing all things.”

(2 Corinthians 6:10).

We are, after all,
Children
Of God.

intertwining-illusion

Existence, as we know it, may be an illusion.

“One could sum up mind
as a universal aspect of Life and energy,
an aspect with a relationship to the body
mystically similar to the wave’s
relationship to the particle.
And according to modern religious sources,
mind also has a resonance relation
to brain cells,
which vibrate in response to
Spiritual Energy
under laws far beyond
the scope of science.”
– Guy Murchie

Let us explore,
In a philosophical perspective,
One very beautiful aspect
Of our Life.

My Friends,
The Flowers of the field
Pick us,
As surely
As someone,
Yet unknown,
Will choose you
To Love.

flowers 2

         Such sweet awareness.

“I am not my memories.
I am my dreams.”
– Terry Hostetler

Just as we take meaning
To
The symbols of communication,
And not from them,
We impose our reality
Upon what we think
Is in the world around us.

Everything we know, imagine,
Perceive as color, sensation, sound,
Our very thoughts and feelings,
Make a first appearance
In our mind.

flowers

The Flowers of the field pick us.

And the Flowers
Residing in the fertile
Soil of a lonely
Mind,
A longing Heart,
Select one of us,
Who falls in Love
With their beauty,
Delights in their delicate aroma,
Absorbs all the colors
That take your breath
Away.

flowers 3

We look far beyond the beauty.

Yes,
Flowers seemingly move
From a place on
This Earth.

And with your outstretched arms
And Lovingly Guided Hands,
They follow the pathway
Back,
Back to the Love
That breathed Life
Into their fragile being,
To the home
That first was their own,
To a place
In your mind,
To the Heart of their Creator,
The Heart of God,
Who resides within
You.

“The most potent form of energy
is thought.

Thought-waves are cosmic waves
that penetrate all time and space.”
– Camillo Loken

flow

Love breathed Life into their fragile being.

And we gaze
Far beyond their beauty,
Through the Flowers
Of our brief moment in time,
And back again.

Then
We give them to someone,
Who also abides in our Heart.

Yes,
The Flowers of our field
Also
Pick the one
We come to
Love.

For they are planted
In the fertile soil
That is the mind
Of a hungry Soul,
By the Loving Hand
Of God.
william_shakespeare_quote_2And as we
Give away
A beautiful bouquet
Of such sweet awareness,
We are unaware
That Flowers
Growing in another person’s dream,
By the Grace of God,
Become real.

     Flowers seemingly move.

They are,
My Friends,
Always there,
Waiting,
Quietly
Blowing in the wind
Of a longing
And lonely mind.

For we are searching,
Ever searching,
To find the courage
To move them
From the field
Of possibilities,
From never,
To Love
Forever.

“Matter
becomes a “wave” of potentials,
expressing itself in the form

CSglobe

Flowers by the Grace of God, become real.

Flowers
Planted in the fertile fields
Of our longing to be,
With so much Beauty,
That was
From our awareness
Concealed,
Are like
God’s Divine Plan
Waiting in your Heart and mind
To be revealed.

“We do not see things
as they are.

We see them

fields

Move them from the field of possibilities, from never, to Love Forever.

The Majesty
Of God’s Love
Conveyed
Throughout His Universe,
Is beautifully displayed.

His Fingerprints
Are on every petal
Of every Flower,
In every field
Of every dream.

And my Soul sings
To think
They were planted
Just for you,
And me.

“There the flowers will be blooming
And the grass will be green
And the skies will be clear and serene,
Where the sun ever beams
In this valley of dreams
And no cloud will be seen.
There will be peace

in the valley
For me some day.”
– Thomas A. Dorsey

My Dear Friends,
If what is real
Is within,
And we now know
That to be,
Then our mind and our Heart
Are the only domains,
And nothing,
No, nothing else
matters,
As you will come
To see.

flower

His Fingerprints are on every petal.

“There are no gloomy skies
When seen through the eyes
Of those who are blessed with love.”
– Mack Discant

What we receive
Is what we bring,
And in every moment
Of Prayerful quiet,
God is listening.

“Once I have known
the mind of God,

the rest are all
details”.

– Albert Einstein

The time will come
When what we know
Is what we
Have always known:
A clear, clarion call
To see the past,
Through our forgiveness,
Never existed
At all.

Yesterday
Is no pathway
To transcend
Sorrow.
Only today
Births tomorrow.

What is past
Is not the road
Down which we travel
To a summer place,
Where people share
Hopes and dreams,
Where Love births
The courage
To care
For the morrow.

“Come, Lord, and tarry not; bonar
Bring the long looked for day;
O why these years of waiting here,
These ages of decay?”
– Horatius Bonar
Hymns of Faith and Hope

The palette of our Resplendent Spirit,
Through fervent Prayer,
Will beautifully blossom
Transcendent colors aware,
As heights we ascend,
And return our fragile being
To the soaring breadth
And sumptuous depths
Of such Splendor
As has no beginning,
And no end.

They were planted just for you and me.

“As the sun,
ere he has risen,
sometimes paints his image
in the firmament,
e’en so the shadows
of events
precede the events,
and in today
already walks tomorrow.”
– William Shakespeare

God
Always resides
In your precious Heart,
In your Life
And in the fertile fields
Of the beautiful flowers
Found in your Dreams.

May God Bless you
And keep you
In His Dreams.

Goodnight.

Americans are eating themselves INSANE.
Causes of mental insanity identified in factory foods
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
A leading consumer health advocate and health freedom activist.

Sources of mental insanity are now identified in factory foods. Mankind is concentrating brain-damaging heavy metals through foods, soils, contaminated water supplies and industrial pollution. People who are buying and consuming factory processed foods are eating themselves into insanity.

The real reason society is so incredibly insane at every level is rooted in the consumption of toxic heavy metals through food, water and other environmental sources. It’s exacerbated by the poisonous heavy metals being fed to factory farmed chickens (and other animals) whose poop is harvested and spread on soils that are used to grow foods for humans.

My Dear Friends, please select ORGANIC foods. Our food chain is now polluted. Yes, you are crazy to buy anything else. Or you may become so.

Dr. A in an earlier life. Note the familiar gaze ever searching for any sign of misbehavior!

Our dear friend and Museum Director, Dr. Harold Lawrence, will provide a docent guided tour. Dr. and Mrs. Lawrence have just returned from spending three weeks in Peru.

Following a morning of great stories, questions and answers, and Dr. Harold Lawrence’s cultural and philosophical perspectives, we will have time for a self-guided tour and shopping at the museum store and then enjoy lunch at the Whistle Hill Café (next door). Then we will return to school to work on our Shakespeare production, Hamlet, with Director George X Rodriguez while Dr. A works on a Ham Omelet. They are both dramatic events. Now pass the Ketchup so Dr. A can catch up.

museumThe Museum of the Americas is a jewel of Weatherford, where we can find the colorful and diverse heritage of native peoples of the Americas through a fabulous collection of 19th & 20th century artifacts, crafts and folk art. The rich cultural traditions of the people and tribes of north, central and South America are reflected in the intricate and distinctive designs of the objects they make for daily use for religious ceremonies and for trade.

FINANCIAL: Museum/Speaker Fee (Donation to the Museum) $5.00 Please pay Dr. A.
Lunch: Please provide funds for lunch today.
Gift Shop: Yes! There have wonderful gifts.

Note: Uniform pants, a belt & red monogrammed school shirt are required. PARENTS/GUARDIANS/FRIENDS are always invited to participate on our study/fun/adventure trips.

Students are NOT to leave the Museum or the Restaurant at any time or for any reason, without the knowledge and approval of Dr. or Mrs. Anderson.

pathway 2

How many times
Have hearts strayed
From the beautiful path
On which once
They would play?

So often we wander
Down alluring pathways of life,
Hearts and minds
Together,
Wanting to be
Forever in Love
With life,
Wanting to stay.

The crystal mirror
Of our memory,
With painful longing,
Invites us to return,
To never leave again
The beauty of Love
Lost along the way,
Never fully knowing
That this moment,
And the last,
Are one.

“Time present and time past
are both perhaps present
in time future
and time future
contained in time past.”
– T.S. Eliot

reflection

The crystal mirror of our memory invites us to return.

The Human Heart
Will never know
It is not still in Love.
It feels not
The time
Apart from the moment
It awakened
In Love with a dream.

Our heart can never forget,
Never truly rest,
Never
Not remember,
All the Love
That gave it Life,
Birth.

It is
Worth remembering,
Love is the Mother

Of all Life on Earth.

Love is a living, breathing thing.

To stay,
To be,
In Love
For all time,
Is not a dream,
My Friend.

For Love
Is a living, breathing thing.
Over and over again
It is reborn,
Brought back to Life,
In our memories,
In our thoughts,
Our fragile hearts,
And
In our very beautiful dreams.

Time stands still and forever is mine.

My Dear Friends,
There is a texture
To Life.
You can feel it
When you laugh out loud,
When you cry so hard
You taste the salt
Of which you are made
In your precious tears,
When you see your reflection
In the sparkle
Of someone’s eyes,
And come to know
You
Are truly alive.

Unequal Balance

      There is a texture to Life.

When someone,
Anyone,
Smiles
And lifts your Spirit off the ground,
And you
Are no longer you,
You belong to
A different moment,
And now belong
To someone
Who is not other,
But a Sister,
A Brother,
And you are together
On a beautiful
Pathway of Life.

You are one.

“What sunshine is to flowers,
smiles are to humanity.
These are but trifles, to be sure;
but scattered along life’s pathway,
the good they do is inconceivable.”
– Joseph Addison

The Love that gave you Life can give it back again.

Such is Love in life
When Spirits blend,
And you and your friend
Can longer stay,
For in this one moment
Time stands still,
And forever is mine.

Love opens this door,
Shows us this way,
Lights a Lamp,
Calls us
By name.

The glorious sun that God sets in your Heart.

Without tasting life,
One withers and dies,
Is deprived of the flavors
Upon which life dines.

Life, my friends,
When viewed
Through the Lens of Love,
Shows us
Love and Life
Are the same.
The joy of living
May be found
In the eyes of another,
In soothing a heart
Filled with pain,

In feeling the Sacred rain
Of grateful tears,

In the calming sounds
Of the night bird’s songs,
In the glorious Sun that God
Sets in your Heart
,
In the healing forgiveness
That greets the dawn
Of Life born again.

The joy of living may be found in the glorious Sun that God sets in your Heart.

The Love
That gave you life
Can give it back
Again.
For life is more
Than a game.
Life and Love
Are truly the same.
Your Love
Was made to be born
In the Human Heart
Again,
And again,
And again.

“There’s a new world somewhere
they call the promised land,
And I’ll be there someday
if you will hold my hand.”

Seek not to find
That which is within,
For the Heart that beats
For another,
Has already found
Its way Home.

Invite it
To come in.

Beautiful Scenery

Healing forgiveness greets the dawn of Life born again.

The water is wide, I cannot get o’er,
Neither have I, the wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row, my love and I.”

                               Fish to Eat & Fish to Avoid

Fish can provide an excellent low-calorie protein source without the fat and cholesterol of red meats. However, some varieties such as shark and mackerel are very high in mercury. Mercury is a known carcinogen and a pollutant of the habitats for many fish, including farmed fish, according to the Washington State Department of Health. The USDA recommends eating at least eight ounces of healthy, low-mercury fish per week.

Crab

This family of fish falls into the shellfish group and includes king, blue and snow crab. Crab is an excellent source of many nutrients including protein, vitamin B12, and vitamin C, and it has only 82 calories per three-ounce serving. Crab is readily available at grocery stores and seafood marts, but avoid the canned or artificial versions. These can have excess sodium, which is hard on the kidneys and heart.

Catfish

When enjoying catfish, choose the American kind – raised, procured and sold as an American product. Imported catfish may contain high levels of cancer-causing toxins. Broiled or grilled catfish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for heart and brain health, and selenium, which is important for cell metabolism.

Scallops

Scallops are a small mussel and safe to eat two to three times weekly. Low in toxins and high in protein, these mussels are delicious alone or on a salad. Scallops come in a variety of sizes, including the large Atlantic version and tiny bay scallops.

Salmon

Salmon is a heart-healthy food that is rich in omega-3 acids. The larger and older the fish, the more mercury it might contain. Therefore, limit farm-raised or Atlantic salmon to one serving every two months, but enjoy canned Pacific salmon two times a week, according to the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals.

Trout

Perhaps a neighbor just returned from a weekend fishing trip and has some trout to spare. Freshwater trout is best and can be enjoyed biweekly, according to the Washington State Department of Health. This fish is rich in omega-3 fats, which are good for the heart.

Tuna

Canned tuna is a popular pantry staple for good reason. It is a quick, cheap source of low-fat protein and is rich in vitamins B12 and D, calcium and iron. However, albacore tuna contains almost three times as much mercury as skipjack tuna, according to the Environmental Defense Fund. Therefore, pregnant women and young children should focus on consuming primarily skipjack, or light varieties of tuna. Furthermore, canned tuna can be high in sodium, so look for low-sodium versions if you’re watching your salt intake.

Oysters

Raw or steamed, oysters are a rich source of protein and omega-3 fats. The Washington State Department of Health states that oysters are low in mercury and can be enjoyed two to three times weekly. Those with health conditions, however, such as immunodeficiency disorders like AIDS or cancer, should avoid oyster consumption due to their potential bacteria containment.

Crayfish

About 3 inches in length, crayfish are similar to tiny lobsters that turn bright red when cooked and contain juicy white meat. Sometimes referred to as crawdads, crayfish are a healthy fish to eat, but only the American kind that is farmed mostly in Louisiana and the Mississippi.

Shrimp

Rich in iodine, shrimp is a low-fat, low-calorie shellfish that can be enjoyed weekly, according to the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals. Shrimp can be boiled, grilled, sauteed or added to a salad while still retaining the same delicious taste.

Sardines

The smaller the fish, the less mercury it contains. Older, larger fish eat the small fish and therefore absorb their mercury and toxins. Sardines, such as herring, are small fish that are low in mercury and high in essential omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin D and several B-vitamins. They are sometimes enjoyed plain on crackers or out of a can. Because many canned versions are high in sodium, consume them in moderation or look for low-sodium canned versions if you are controlling your sodium intake.

The FDA advises that pregnant women, nursing mothers, and young children to avoid eating swordfish, shark, king mackerel, and tilefish.

The causes of death
NOW
and
one hundred fifteen years ago.

My dear friends,
It is NOT normal to die from cancer, heart disease
or suffer from diabetes, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, etc.
These diseases only exist because of
they way we live our lives
and a lack of knowledge,

Cancer and Heart Disease
and Diabetes
have INCREASED due to
Corporate (profit) driven
pollution of the food chain.

My friends,
please study this chart from
the New England Journal of Medicine.
It is quite revealing.
And MOST important
share this knowledge with
you precious children.
They NEED to know.
Please discuss it with them.
This chart will make for GREAT
nightly reading.
A serious discussion
will enable them to have
