The Word “Love” is Inadequate / Robert Lotman / Spring Break This Week

There is Beauty
all around you,
even unto a singular
drop of water
reflecting the World
at large.

Just as you
reflect
ALL the Love that abounds
all around.

“Listen to each drop of rain
whispering secrets in vain.
Frantically searching for someone to hear
their story before they hit ground.
Please don’t let go.
Can’t we stay for a while?
It’s just to hard to say goodbye.
Listen to the rain.

I stand alone in the storm.
Suddenly,
sweet words take hold.

(Listen listen)
Hurry,
they say
for you haven’t much time.

Open your eyes
to the Love around you.

You may feel you’re alone.
But I’m here still with you.
You can do what you dream.
Just remember
to listen to the rain.”

– Amy Lee

                   Reflecting the World.

My Friends,
your smile
is reflected in another,
who smiled at
You.
Your laughter
was alive before you,
in the birth
of awareness,
in the magnificence
of our predicament,
in the delight
of our Humanity,
in celebration of our
perfect imperfections.

“In one drop of water
are found all the secrets
of all the oceans;
in one aspect of You
are found ALL the aspects
of Existence.”
Kahlil Gibran

God
is in Love
with YOU.
How
could it not be?
He created you.
He cherishes you.
His Son
died for you.

The World reflect
dances like silver,
mirrored in the waters
of every lake
and stream,
in every drop of water,
in the Hope
of every
Dream.

Yes,
there is Beauty
ALL around.
And
the greatest Beauty,
the most magnificent of all,
is to be found in
YOU.

Know
that it is the waves of Love
that turn the Wheels of Heaven.
Without Love,
NOTHING in the world would have Life.

With one Rose
you can buy hundreds of Rose gardens.
Where, for one seed
you get a whole wilderness?
For one weak breath,
the Divine Wind?”
Rumi

          The history of ALL mankind.

Buried
deep within the DNA
of every person,
lies the History
of ALL Mankind.

A new Universe
has been discovered –
inside each of over
one trillion Human cells,
It harbors information systems
more complex than anything
ever designed by Humanity’s
very best minds.

“DNA is like
a software program,
only MUCH more complex
than anything we’ve ever devised.”
– Bill Gates

The information in our DNA
is equivalent to a dozen SETS
of The Encyclopaedia Britannica –
more than 384 volumes
of highly detailed information
that would fill 48 feet
of library shelves!
And
it is contained in a space
only two millionths of one millimeter
thick.

You are not a drop
in the Ocean.
You are
the entire Ocean
in a drop.”
– Rumi

“He
who saves a single Life,

saves the world
entire.”

The Talmud

My Friends,
you are far more Miraculous
than anything
you can possibly imagine.

Yes,
there is magic
in the moment
that you meet
YOU.

Incomprehensible
as we may be,
indescribable as we are
ever reaching to see,
we are still searching
to be,
understood.

“You formed my inward parts,
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You,
for I am fearfully and WONDERFULLY made.
My frame was not hidden from You,
when I was made in secret,
and skillfully wrought.”
Psalms 139:13-15

In our virtuous quest,
we may come
one day
to rest
our weary minds.
For the Wisdom of the ages
lies within easy
reach –
within the Pages
of the Holy Bible.

“Every being exists
in intimate relation with other beings
and in constant exchange of gifts with each other.
But this relationship is BEYOND pragmatic use.
It is rather a mutual sharing of existence
in the Grand Venture
of the Universe itself.”
– Thomas Berry

               The word “Love” is inadequate.

It’s hard to say
that I’d rather stay awake

when I’m asleep,
‘Cause everything
is NEVER
as it seems.”

Adam R. Young

  Search your Heart
in still, quiet moments
of what is left
of your brief Life.
Find the purpose
God desires,
for what you have left
to give.

It is far different
than you have imagined.
It is
larger than yourself.
It will last for Eternity.
It is
in the brevity of Life
and in the simplicity of language:
Love.

“The Universe
spills through our dreams.
The future belongs
to the most compelling story.
Even the word “Love”
is inadequate to define

the Force that wove
the fabric of
space-time.”
Drew Dellinger

Acceptance
of God’s Love
is a gently journey.

Goodnight.

in the world,
with 372,000 drowning deaths reported annually.

The Centers for Disease Control
reports that here in the United States,
on average, 3,536 people died from drowning annually
from 2005 to 2014, which equates to 10 deaths each day.
Then there are the thousands of others who suffer swimming pool-related injuries each year.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
reports that an average of 4,900 people
received emergency care for injuries
suffered in a swimming pools or spas each year
in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Swimming Pool Drowning Deaths and Kids

It’s an unbelievable statistic: According to the CDC,
drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death
for children
between the ages of 1 and 4.
And according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission,
390 deaths a year on average
are attributed to drowning
in a swimming pool or at a spa in the U.S.

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

The Only Gift Worthy / Household Items That Cause Cancer / Three Person Babies? / Movies

Knowledge informed by sympathy,
intelligence in the arms of Love.”
– Edward Abby.

Sunset A

Photo by William C. Anderson

We can see with our eyes.
But close your eyes,
And look into the real light of this life,
Into the Light of your heart,
Into that which transcends
What has been illumined,
Into what will be.

Close your eyes.
Listen to the song
Long laid to rest,
Seldom sung,
But as a child.
The one you heard –
So long ago,
The one you were –
And, so long to hear again.

It is the song of your heart,
Beating in time
With all that has gone before,
With all it longed to be.

You shall never see
As clearly as today.
The lens of your heart
Can focus your mind
Upon the things in life
That truly have meaning,
That matter.

Sunset 2

The glow of your being,
The essence of your existence,
Lies deeply embedded
Within the Love you feel
For someone else.

Within the few and precious moments
You share with another,
Lies a Gift greater
Than any treasure on this earth,
A Gift only you can give,
A Gift so alive with Love,
That it will live forever –
The Gift of knowing, surely knowing,
That someone is alive in your heart,
And will live there
Forever.

Such Love never dies.
Such Love has always lived,
Placed in your heart
By the precious Love of God,
This Love comes through you,
Not from you.

It is the only Gift
Worthy of bestowing,
Worthy of receipt.

It is yours,
If discovered,
Treasured,
Shared.

Your heart is not yours.
It belongs to another,
And always has.
Time is measured
By its humble beat –
The pulsing of its radiance
You will never feel,
For the vibrancy of its being
Always takes flight,
Seeking shelter
In the dark corner of another life,
To light the pathway,
To see.

You are,
By the Grace of God,
This Light
.
  May the Light of your precious Life
Bring someone out of darkness,
And into the warm, bright, joyful
Sunlight of Salvation –
Your Salvation,
And the precious one you save.

“Till the stars fall around me
And find me all alone.
When the sun comes a-singing
I’ll still be waiting.”

6 common household items that cause cancer
from: naturalnews.com

Air fresheners –  A hotbed of poisonous substances that could leave you and your loved ones infertile, brain-damaged or chronically ill. Tests conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council found that most air fresheners contain phthalates, which among other things interfere with male hormone production.

Most air fresheners are also loaded with other cancer-causing volatile organic compounds as well, which interfere with reproduction, respiration and cellular regeneration. A 2008 study conducted by Anne Steinemann at the University of Washington found that all air fresheners tested emitted chemicals known to be carcinogenic, meaning they cause cancer.

Instead of toxic commercial air fresheners, stick with all-natural essential oils, which can be applied to the skin or released into the air from a diffuser. read more

Candles  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found that nearly half of all scented candles on the market contain lead wiring in their wicks, which is released into the air upon burning. This lead leads to hormone disruption, behavioral disorders and other health problems.

Many candles are also made of paraffin wax which, when burned, generates two highly toxic compounds, benzene and toluene, both of which are carcinogenic. Artificial fragrances and dyes are also present in many scented candles, which when burned end up in your lungs.

Art supplies –  Epoxy materials, glues, acrylic paints and solvents, drawing utensils and other supplies used to create art contain chemicals linked to allergies, organ damage and cancer.

The federal Labeling Hazardous Art Materials Act requires that all art supplies sold in the U.S. bear warnings. It is recommended that users of such supplies purchase only products that are certified by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI). ACMI-certified products undergo rigorous evaluations by independent toxicologists to make sure that they are safe for everyone, including small children.

Shampoos & Conditioners – Toxins are in cosmetics containing ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate that generate cancer-causing byproducts when used. Other carcinogenic additives commonly used in hair care products include polyethylene glycol (PEG) and cocamide DEA.

Safe Cosmetics has put together a list of the safest and most eco-friendly shampoos on the market, which are free of most or all of the chemicals listed in its “Skin Deep” database, which you can access here: SafeCosmetics.org.

Antiperspirant Deodorants –  Avoid aluminum chlorohydrate, which can absorb directly into the skin and promote the formation of breast cancer. Aluminum from antiperspirants is also believed to contribute to brain diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Other toxic additives in deodorants include parabens, artificial preservatives that mimic estrogen in the body and promotes the growth of cancer cells. Parabens are also linked to gastrointestinal damage, nausea and central nervous system depression.

Shower curtains – Plastic shower curtains act something like a radiator for toxic chemical release. Many shower curtains off-gas harmful chemicals known as volatile organic compounds that are known to damage the respiratory tract, central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

Augustus Caesar keeps a watchful eye over Mary Alice (she earlier beheaded him!)

If your shower curtain has that unique “new shower curtain smell,” it is releasing deadly chemicals — potentially upwards of 108 different VOCs, that are harming you. It is important to buy only non-toxic, PVC-free shower curtains made without harmful chemicals.

Some of the best options include shower curtains made from hemp, linen, birch, organic cotton or PEVA, which you can learn more about here:

MPs in the U.K say yes to Three-Person Babies
from click here

MPs have voted in favor of the creation of babies with DNA from two women and one man. The UK is now set to become the first country to introduce laws to allow the creation of babies from three people. The technique stops genetic diseases being passed from mother to child. This change that will be passed down through the generations. It also asks questions about the future. Some people argue we are now on a slippery slope to further genetic modification of children.

A further vote is required in the House of Lords. It everything goes ahead then the first such baby could be born next year. Critics say they will continue to fight against the technique that raises too many ethical and safety concerns.
