Love Is Simple and Truly Beautiful / Link Between Migraines and Sodium / Friday: At School for Shakespeare Production Preparation

LOVE
is simple,
and truly Beautiful.

Love
cannot be expressed
in mere words.
But,
we may articulate
the Majesty of Love
using words as simple
as Love is.

 To inspire the Heart,
recognize
the importance of Love
in Life.
Open the windows
that are your eyes.
Open the door
that is your
Heart.

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

Victor Hugo

Busy yourself
with the real
purpose of Life
– giving and receiving
unconditional Love,
awakening
and discovering
that
it really does exist.

“And remember
as it was written,
to Love another person
is to see
the Face of God.”

Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

You
can experience
unconditional Love.
Through Loving work,
and Compassion
and tender acts of Kindness,
precious Lives are nurtured
and sustained,
and our lives
are made worth living.

The path
to unconditional Love
is a Spiritual aspiration,
and lies beyond any limitations
in the material Universe.
Such Love
keeps giving
long, long after
you are gone.

True Love,
Love without condition,
lies in the rare moment
you feel accepted, understood, forgiven,
and totally Loved
just the way you are.
In that moment
you feel warm and embraced.
It is the single most Beautiful sensation
you ever experience.
Unconditional Love
is the only healing force
in our Universe.

ONLY
Love lights the way
into Paradise!
Only
Love can move
at the speed of Life.
Living
between your smiles
are the moments
that take
someone’s breath
away.

“The best and most Beautiful things
in this World
cannot be seen or even heard,
but must be felt
with the Heart.”

Helen Keller

If you are lucky enough
to see True Love come your way,
be thankful to God
every day.

We
are the expression
of the unconditional Love
of God.

My Dear Friends,
when your pride
has no where left
to hide,
remember,
from Love
you can never
hide.

If
you want to find
Love,
go where
Love is,
where it has always
been,
in the Heart
of another.

When
we experience unconditional Love,
it fosters our understanding
of the deep Love of God.
But in Truth,
we can never fathom the depth
of God’s Infinite Love
for His children.
(Ephesians 3:19)

You naturally experience
unconditional Joy and Love.
Do not wait
for something good to happen
before you feel Joyful.
Joy
rises from inside you.
Your Heart
naturally feels Love
for yourself,
for Life
and for all of Creation.
Unconditional Love
is Love that you do not
learn.

Navigate past yourself
to find your Spiritual
“Self”,
so you can experience
the unbelievable
Beauty
of unconditional Love.

“In order to be Happy oneself
it is necessary
to make at least one other person
Happy.”

Theodor Reik

Yes,
Love lives
in plain
sight.
Expect nothing
in return for your Love,
and Love
WILL
find you.

This moment
is magical and precious
and will never exist again.
We often forget
that now is the moment we are in,
that the next moment
may never exist.
And if we are Blessed with another moment,
the Joy it brings
will ensue from the way we Live
in this present
moment.

              Love is truly Beautiful.

What we do is truly Heart-felt
in so many ways.

“One word frees us
of all the weight and pain
of Life:
That word is
Love.

Sophocles

My Dear Friends,
to be in Love
with Life,
is to be searching
for your
Soul.

Anything less
than Love,
is a dance
with death.

“Better to have lost and Loved
than never to have Loved
at all.”

Ernest Hemingway

Your passion for Life,
your search for Love,
your compassion
for others,
for ALL of God’s
beautiful Creations,
make Life happen.

Transcend
your self-imposed
limits.

We have all seen
the Truth,
but we keep losing sight of it,
and then,
we have to find it again.
And
we never know,
that Truth
possesses us.
It is
us.

“Where there is Love
there
is Life.”

Mahatma Gandhi

We are all on a journey
to encounter Love,
to find the Ultimate Truth,
UNKNOWING,
so very unaware,
it lies
through the door
of our Faith,
between the covers
of a Book
more widely read
than any other
ever published on
this Earth –
The Holy Bible.

If you wish to see
with your own eyes,
the silent Tribute
to Love,
to the Infinite and Everlasting,
Unconditional Love of God

for you and for me,
go outside tonight
and just look up.

“I’m wearing the smile
you gave me.”

Unknown

It is time
My Friend,
for your day
to begin,
with the rising of the Sun
in your precious Heart.

Living Life
through Love,
is flying high enough
to finally see
where you have been,
and where
you should have been going
all along.

Lay your burden
down.
It was never
really yours.

Goodnight.

Migraine Sufferers Have Higher Concentrations
Of Sodium in their Brains

A link existing between migraines and the distribution of sodium in the brain has been recently found out by a group of US researchers. The study’s finding could be an essential key that could lead to future treatments for millions of people affected by migraines.

Migraine Sufferers Have Higher Concentrations Of Sodium in their Brains.

Using high-powered magnets at the lab, essentially a high-powered magnetic resonance imaging, the team scanned rats’ brains as they experienced migraines.

‘People suffering from migraines have higher sodium concentrations in their cerebrospinal fluid than those who do not have the condition.
They found that there was increased sodium in the brain stem long before the rats showed any sign of having a migraine, according to the study published in the journal Pain.

“The importance of these findings is that they further emphasize the role of sodium increase early in migraines and help point to the region where migraine symptoms may be starting,” said Michael Harrington director of neurosciences at Huntington Medical Research Institutes – a California-based non-profit organization.

Previous studies have showed that migraine sufferers have significantly higher sodium concentrations in their cerebrospinal fluid than people without the condition.

Scientists have found that a number of different health scenarios seem to trigger migraines including anxiety, stress, exposure to light and hormonal changes.

According to the World Health Organization, a large number of people with headache disorders are not diagnosed and treated – worldwide only 40 per cent of those with migraine are professionally diagnosed.

Besides the painful headache, the condition is also disabling. In the Global Burden of Disease Study, migraine was ranked as the sixth highest cause worldwide of years lost due to disability.

What is the Meaning? / C. S. Lewis / Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking / Fall Break This Week

spectacular-tree-b

In the midnight quiet
of a railway station,
a little boy
sits quietly,
almost all alone,
waiting on
the Rock Island Line,
with just his precious
Mother’s voice
to soften the hard edges
of the hardwood bench,
the crisp night air,
the reflecting, echoing walls,
Life.

And I discover
with the Love
of a Mother,
nothing else
in Life
truly matters.

Marie 5

Marie Anderson

And her precious Life
echoes back:

“If I never
would have lived,
I could not
die.
Death
is proof of
Life.
And Life,
my Son,
is proof of Love.”

dark-cloud-and-sun-b

       Death is proof of Life.

“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;

You raise me up
To more than I can be.”
Brendan Graham

        What is the meaning?

My Dear Friends,

Life is bittersweet
and can be filled
with despair.

Upon a razor’s edge
are we cast
onto the stage
of a Magnificent Day,
that can quickly become
a long night
to stay.

As our minds reflect
upon Human misery,
the mirror of our awareness
shows the World can be
a terrible place.
The History
of the Human race
depicts something far less
than Humanity.

And the fear of death,
not knowing where we go,
or what takes place
after we tell
the brief story of our Life,
can become worse
than death itself.

very-pink-rose-b

                  Be at Peace.

What is the meaning
of the songs our Lives sing,
the sad and Joyous lyrics
that surround and abound?
Did anyone hear them?
Where did they go?
Into the vast Void,
the unknown and empty space
all around
us?

We become very reflective
of life wandering,
wondering.

Then,
by the Grace of God,
one day we discover
that what lies within
becomes the only
journey we ever
really make.

Beyond,
is far beyond
what we can ever
contemplate.

            What is Existence?

My Friends,
Nothingness
simply cannot exist!

This metaphysical concept
about the structure and nature of Reality,
points to a fundamental question:

What is Existence?

Greek philosophers long ago addressed this question.
They observed that nothingness (non-existence)
is self-contradictory.
There must be something in reality
that necessarily exists.
Everything in existence cannot just be
or cease to be.
There was never a time in the past
in which there was nothing in existence at all.
Something cannot come from nothing.
There must be something that always existed.

“And the LORD God
formed man
of the dust of the ground.”
– Genesis 2:7

This fundamental Philosophical question
continues to be explored
and is known as Ontology
(the study of Reality or Being).

tri-colored

         All of Nature is good.

God
perfectly answers
this ontological prerogative.
He provides the Source of Being
necessary to existence.

The Laws of Thermodynamics
are simple and straight forward:
matter cannot be created or destroyed
There is a necessary structure
to the Universe.
Some aspect of it
is necessary to existence
itself.

Augustine explained
the Idea of God,
of Being.
The result is a Powerful
and truly Beautiful Conception of Reality.
Understanding his treatise,
alternatively titled,
“Faith, Hope, and Love”,
can provide insight and comfort
for our overly burdened, doubtful
and weary minds.

trees-bending

Something cannot come from nothing.

“All of nature, therefore, is good,
since the Creator of all nature
is Supremely Good.
But nature
is not supremely and immutably good

as is the Creator of it.
Thus the good in created things
can be diminished and augmented.”
– from the Enchiridion by Augustine

augustine

LIKE A COLOSSUS BESTRIDING TWO WORLDS,
Augustine stands as the last Patristic

and the first medieval Father of Western Christianity.
He gathered together and conserved all the

main motifs of Latin Christianity
from Tertullian to Ambrose;
he appropriated the heritage of

Nicene orthodoxy;
he was a Chalcedonian before Chalcedon
– and he drew all this into an

unsystematic synthesis
which is still our best mirror
of the Heart and mind of the Christian
community in the Roman Empire.

His essentially conservative genius
recast the Patristic tradition
into the new pattern by which European Christianity
would be largely shaped and who,

wrought out the first comprehensive
“Philosophy of History.”

We become very reflective.

 There is no such thing as
nothingness.
Everything is something.
Nothing is nothing.
Man lives more by affirmation
than by bread.
Victor Hugo
.

One day,
we discover
in a singular precious moment,
meaning.
We find the essence
of our Being
in the reflection
of someone’s eyes,
all the Love
we have known,
all the caring
we have shown,
all our Hopes,
all our Dreams.

We see the whole Universe
in a teardrop
of Joy,
from one who Loves us,
more than Life,
more than the moment.

two-geese-b

The essence of our Being.

When it all goes wrong,
our lives
seek shelter.
And within the Loving Heart
of another,
the storms that rage
all around
cannot be heard,
can never even be felt,
beyond the Loving arms
of someone’s embrace.

“When blackness was a virtue, bobdylan-b
the road was full of mud.

I came in from the wilderness
a creature void of form

“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you
shelter from the storm.”

– Bob Dylan

C.S. Lewis left his childhood Christian faith
to spend years as a determined atheist.
After finally admitting God existed,
Lewis gave in and knelt in prayer
to become what he described later as
“the most dejected and reluctant convert
in all England.”

Lewis’s long journey away from, and back to,
Faith
began with his mother’s death from cancer
when he was a boy.
Disillusioned that God had not healed his mother,
Lewis set out on a path toward
full-bodied rationalism and atheism.

The road back to Faith
was cluttered with obstacles
Lewis once thought impossible to overcome.
His conversion to a robust Christianity
required years of intellectual struggle
and came only after being convinced
that faith was reasonable.

The journey of C.S. Lewis,
perhaps the greatest defender of the faith
of the twentieth century,
provides valuable lessons for Christians today
in sharing the Gospel
with an unbelieving generation.

Lewis spoke and wrote often of
Joy,”
a deep longing of the human heart
this world cannot satisfy,
and presented it as
evidence for God.

“Joy”
was a recurring experience for Lewis
as a child and adolescent
and came to him through
nature,
literature
and music.

C. S. Lewis made a case for God
by arguing that every natural, innate desire
corresponds to some real object
that can fulfill that desire.
Since humans desire something
this world cannot satisfy,
something exists outside this earthly world
that can satisfy –
God.

Lewis addressed this basic human desire
allegorically in The Pilgrim’s Regress,
autobiographically in Surprised by Joy,
reasonably in Mere Christianity,
and in sermon in The Weight of Glory.

“If I find in myself a desire
which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation
is that I was made for another world.
(Mere Christianity, 120)

“Christians must present the Faith
as fulfilling our deepest desires.
We too often present Christianity
as merely a Philosophical system,
or the conclusion to a string of inferences
made based upon Scripture,
but the Salvation promised us in Scripture
applies to the whole person.”
– C. S. Lewis

I cannot recommend anyone
more highly

In the inner Core
of our Souls,
we find Faith.

You cannot doubt
you exist,
because you exist
to doubt.

Do not doubt
that God Loves you.
He Loves you
enough to liberate your mind
to doubt.
He Loves you enough
to let your precious Heart
show you the way
to His Heart.

Be at Peace
My Friend.
God is more real
than you are.

And so is
His Love.

Goodnight.

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF MICROWAVE COOKING
from Curezone.org
read more

Creation of a “binding effect” to radioactivity in the atmosphere, causes a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;

Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];

Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];

Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];

Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas – cell tumors such as sarcoma];

Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;

Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;

Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,

In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

                 BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

                            Forensic Research Conclusions

From the above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence.

Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body, which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.

The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.

                   Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing”, has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems.
Not surprisingly, the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers.


MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

Microwave radiation is odorless and invisible and therefore hard to detect.

Microwave oven radiation is present whenever a microwave oven is turned on.

The microwave energy causes the water molecules in the food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food. It can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health. Once you turn off the oven, the microwaves disappear but until then, you may be exposing yourself to dangerous levels of radiation leakage.

Do Microwaves Leak?

A survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA. More often than not, a simple adjustment was all that was needed to stop the leakage.

What Causes Microwave Ovens To Leak?

Slamming the oven door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges.

Simple Gifts

“Its a gift to be simple.
Its a gift to be free.

It’s the gift to come down
where you ought to be.

And when we find ourselves
in the place just right,

We’ll be in the valley
of Love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
to bow and to bend,
we will not be ashamed.

To turn, turn, will be our delight,
till by turning, turning
we come round right.”
– Joseph Brackett

The shape of things
to come
is never what we think,
not what we dream,
not even
what we
are able to imagine.

For tomorrow
lies not
within the plane
of our reality,
the subtle state of our consciousness
that transcends the known physical Universe.
It lies not within dimensions
known today.

The dynamic force
of our awareness
is being sent forth,
like waves in a vast ocean,
through time as we know it,
manifesting all things
we imagine
and culminating in the Universe
we treasure and desire.

Such is Love
in you.

But we may not dwell
within any tomorrow,
if our humanity,
our Love for one another,
self-destructs.
We will not be here
to be aware.

                  Look beyond

Of things unknowable
we cannot know.
But
we can become aware:

We can come to know
that we can never know.

And this
is an aspect of
Infinity.
For the Infinite
is far beyond
what we are capable
of ever comprehending.

We are finite
and very fragile,
enveloped within Infinite Love,
possibly impossible,
relative to the
irrational,
and Beautiful beyond
Belief.

Beyond illusions of Life and living.

Much,

of what Mankind

is a feeble attempt
to fit a distorted reality
of our own making
into the shape
of what we envision
for tomorrow.

And tomorrow
may no longer be found
under the shade
of any tree
planted today
that worships
the winds
of such change.

Only in the mysterious equations of Love.

The collective conscience
of Mankind
is accelerating in thought,
as it recklessly races
toward,
not just an uncertain future,
but what we cannot

My Dear Friends,
how do we
prepare our precious Children
for the unknown
and the unknowable?
To what end
do we strive?

What now
is our goal in Life
for them?

       Beautiful beyond belief.

Perhaps,
we should foster

Perhaps.

I believe,
we should look
within ourselves,
beyond illusions
of Life

Ultimately,
it’s not what we make of us
that takes us,
it’s what takes us
beyond us.

Can you see
the Universe
in a drop of rain?
Can you find
what outwardly you seek,
by not looking

are tiny matters compared to
what lies within us.”

     Look far beyond ourselves.

Perhaps,
we should close our tired eyes
and look
far beyond ourselves.

My Dear Friends,
lay your weary head
upon your pillow.
Feel the warmth
of beautiful moments remembered.
Hear the whisper
of the raindrops
blowing soft
across the window.

Listen carefully,
and you will hear
echoes reflected off the walls
of your treasured memories
kept deeply hidden
in the Heart.

See
what only Hearts
can see.

You can hear God calling
Walking barefoot by a stream.
. . .  Close your eyes
and hear
the flowers growing”

– Neil Diamond

What we may not
always comprehend
is part
of what is truly Beautiful.
The Mysterious
may always remain
within realms unknown
and unknowable,
as it takes our breath away
with its Beauty.

Such is
the Love of God,
so far beyond
what we will ever
truly know.

Such is the
Spiritual.

Such is the Love
hidden deep
in your Heart.

“I ask nash
What truly is logic?
Who decides reason?
My quest has taken me
to the physical,
the metaphysical, the delusional,
and back.
I have made
the most important discovery
of my career –
the most important discovery of my life.
It is only in the mysterious equations
of Love
that any logic or reasons
can be found.”
– John Forbes Nash

The most mysterious thing
our minds can
entertain,
is the Love of God.
for us.

The Beauty of Love
draws us in,
to lead us
toward ourselves.

It causes us
to reflect and to dream,
and for a few precious moments,
see with our Hearts
what lies
beyond even tomorrow,
to finally realize
the Divine Reality
that dwells
within.

We are the Dream
too long
afraid of waking.

Goodnight.

light-c“I’ll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again
We’ll sail on the sun, we’ll ride on the rain
We’ll talk to the trees that worship the wind.
– Neil Diamond

My Dear Friends,
negative emotions are completely useless.
Resentment, bitterness, hate, and jealousy
have never improved
the quality of life
for even one single
human being.

Never.

Cruciferous Vegetables Promote Healthy DNA

Laboratory experiments offer evidence that cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and kale – help preserve the integrity of DNA. As a vital cell component, DNA is highly vulnerable to damage.

Broccoli, watercress, and rosemary provide bioactive compounds, including glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid, and carnosol, that have a multitude of favorable effects on DNA and healthy cell division.

Curcumin: The Workhorse of Cellular Health

Curcumin’s benefits are so diverse that they affect virtually every system in the body. It’s no accident that the National Institutes of Health has funded numerous studies investigating curcumin as a treatment for diseases from cystic fibrosis to autoimmune diseases to various cancers.

“Curcumin has emerged as one of the most powerful chemopreventive and anticancer agents,” wrote researchers last year. “Its biological effects range from antioxidant and anti-inflammatory to inhibition of angiogenesis, and it is also shown to possess specific anti-tumor activity.”

It is t

Around School 5-5-14 001 - Prof. Lacey

Dedicated to our very own Professor of Epic Literature, Latin and Greek, Mr. Lacey. Among the greatest Blessings in my life, and the lives of so many others, is knowing this gentle Heart, this Loving Soul. What an Honor to know Mr. Harry H. Lacey. Human kindness is overflowing in the life of this truly remarkable man.  Thank you for all you do.                                We Love you too.

“Ninety-nine percent
of who you are
is invisible
and untouchable.”

R. Buckminster Fuller

Yes, we are almost nonexistent.

Now combine that knowledge
With this observation from
from another of the
most powerful minds
to ever exist:
THOMAS EDISON

“Its obvious that we don’t know
one millionth of one percent
about anything.”

bird in rabbit

Unbelievable. A bird raised her young inside our cast iron Rabbit welded to the railing. “Uh, what’s up Doc?”

And it becomes apparent that we,
who are almost
nonexistent,
know next to nothing
about anything.

But we keep
wondering
about everything,
not realizing
that the things
we think about,
may not even
exist at all.

It may be time,
which really doesn’t exist,

to realize that we need to
truly enjoy
what little there is
to this life.

No wonder life is so short.

Our birds have been bathing, feeding and protecting us as Natural pesticides. Thank you! Please do NOT poison your precious children with pesticides. Replace these toxins with knowledge, compassion and new, happy feathered friends. They love Life too.

There is so very little
to reality,
and it is so fragile
and so filled with illusion.
Yes, it may indeed
possess the qualities
of a dream.

So, let’s either wake up or go back to sleep,
we dream either way.

But what ever you choose to do,
give thanks to your Loving Creator.

He made you out of
virtually nothing,
nothing but Love.

love quote

Which leads me to believe
that Love
is all there really is.
And if you think about it,
that is a truly powerful
and unbelievably beautiful Gift.
You are Love.
And you are deeply Loved.

Perhaps saying
“I Love you”
has a much deeper meaning
than we will ever
be able
to fully realize.

Tree House Masters move over! Dr. A through imagination (and a lazy streak) simply let this tree grow under the ham shack. He thinks it will gently lift it into the air.                                – Genius!       OK.  Just lazy.

Saying
“I Love you”,
may truly mean
“I am you.”

Yes,
we are one.

And such awareness
can open the door
to all the loving
compassion
that dwells in your
Heart.

Great truths are simple.
Perhaps, they are so simple
that we shall never
comprehend them.
After all,
they come from
God.

        Nothing but Love

“The nature of ‘reality’
is not only stranger than you imagine,
it’s stranger than you can imagine!

There is a saying that
“truth is stranger than fiction”
and this certainly applies to the nature of reality,
because in the light of increasing evidence,
what we have accepted to be the ‘truth’
about our everyday reality
is much more like the ‘fiction’
of our everyday reality.”
– Dawn Lester  read more

Ann

Our students honor the Loving memory of Anne Frank and over a million precious Jewish children lost to the evil of the holocaust. No. We shall never forget. Never. And we shall never stop Loving you.

The precious winds of time
Sometimes blow
Only one way,
Sometimes, we feel,
Not at all.

Such a gentle flowing breeze
At dawn of day,
Reminds us of our brief stay,
Whispering your name,
Beckoning you to stay
In Love
With this Precious Gift of Life
One more day.

“Kindness in words creates confidence;
kindness in thinking creates profoundness;
kindness in giving creates Love.”
Lao Tzu

Should you pause
And close your eyes,
Your heart
May see again,
Past the darkening nights
Of transgression,
Into the Light
Of forgiveness,
Into the soft, glowing
Eternity
Of your precious Heart.

And as you feel
The passing gentle breeze,
Across the beauty
Of the morning sky,
You cannot deny,
The very Breath of God.

“Looking back,
I have this to regret,
that too often when I loved,
I did not say so.”

My Dear Friends,
Reach beyond who you are.
Live in the lives of those around you.
Move your mind, body, and spirit.
Step out of your comfort zone,
Open up the vast,
Unexplored space
Inside your Heart.

It too
Has no horizon,
No boundary,
No limit.

Your Love
Is Infinite.
It flows through you
From the Infinite Love
Of God.

Superfoods
for Coping with Stress

When it comes to combating stress levels,
what you eat may help relieve your tension.
Some foods may help stabilize blood sugar
or your emotional response.
Here are12 foods to reach for
(GREAT for KIDS):

Green leafy vegetables

Like spinach they contain folate, which produces dopamine, a pleasure-inducing brain chemical, helping you keep calm,” says Heather Mangieri, RDN, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. A 2012 study in the Journal of Affective Disorders of 2,800 middle-aged and elderly people and found those who consumed the most folate had a lower risk of depression. A 2013 study from the University of Otago found that college students tended to feel calmer, happier, and more energetic on days they ate more fruits and veggies.

Turkey breast

 Tryptophan in turkey is to blame for that food coma on Thanksgiving.  The amino acid, found in protein-containing foods, helps produce serotonin, “the chemical that regulates hunger and feelings of happiness and well-being,” In a 2006 study published in the Journal of Psychiatry Neuroscience, men and women who were argumentative (based on personality tests) who took tryptophan were perceived as more agreeable compared with when they didn’t take it. (Canadian Institutes of Health Research) Other foods high in tryptophan include nuts, seeds, tofu, fish, lentils, oats, beans, and eggs.

Oatmeal

According to MIT research, carbohydrates can help the brain make serotonin, the same substance regulated by antidepressants. A complex carb like oatmeal won’t contribute to your already potential spike in blood glucose.”

Yogurt

A 2013 UCLA study revealed that consuming probiotics in yogurt reduced brain activity in areas that handle emotion, including stress. You really can’t go wrong by adding more of it to your diet.

Salmon

Ratchet up anxiety hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon help counteract the negative effects of stress hormones,” according to Lisa Cimperman, RD, of the University Hospitals Case Medical Center. In a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, Oregon State University medical students who took omega-3 supplements had a 20% reduction in anxiety. One 3-ounce serving of cooked wild salmon can have more than 2,000 milligrams of omega-3s, double the daily intake recommended by the American Heart Association for people with heart disease.

Blueberries blueberries

The antioxidants and phytonutrients found in berries help improve your body’s response to stress and fight stress-related free radicals.” Research has also shown that blueberry eaters experience a boost in natural killer cells, “a type of white blood cell that plays a vital role in immunity according to Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, Health’s contributing nutrition editor.

pistaciosPistachios

When you have an ongoing loop of negative thoughts playing in your mind, doing something repetitive with your hands may help silence your inner monologue. Think knitting or kneading bread—or even shelling nuts like pistachios or peanuts. The rhythmic moves will help you relax. Pistachios have heart-health benefits. Eating pistachios reduce acute stress by lowering blood pressure and heart rate. They contain key phytonutrients that provide antioxidant support for cardiovascular health.

Dark chocolate

Just a bite, not a whole bar, of dark chocolate can help to regulate your stress levels. Research has shown that it can reduce your stress hormones, including cortisol. The antioxidants in cocoa trigger the walls of your blood vessels to relax, lowering blood pressure and improving circulation. Dark chocolate contains unique natural substances that create a sense of euphoria similar to the feeling of being in love!” Go for varieties that contain at least 70% cocoa.

milkMilk

Fortified milk is an excellent source of vitamin D, a nutrient to boost happiness. A 50-year-long study by London’s UCL Institute of Child Health found an association between reduced levels of vitamin D and an increased risk of panic and depression. People whith sufficient vitamin D levels had a reduced risk of panic disorders. Other foods high in vitamin D include salmon, egg yolks, and fortified cereal.

Seeds

Flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds are great sources of magnesium (as are leafy greens, yogurt, nuts, and fish). Loading up on the mineral helps regulate emotions. Magnesium has been shown to help alleviate depression, fatigue, and irritability.

Avocadoalvacado

This superfruit helps shut down stress-eating by filling your belly and making you feel more satisfied. In a 2014 study by Loma Linda University (which we MUST note was sponsored by the Hass Avocado Board), reduced desire to eat more by 40% for the three hours.

cashewsCashews

Researchers gave zinc supplements to people who were diagnosed with anxiety symptoms (irritability, lack of ability to concentrate) and patients saw a 31% decrease in anxiety, according to Nutrition and Metabolic Insights. Zinc affects the levels of a nerve chemical that influences mood. Other zinc-rich foods are oysters, beef, chicken, and yogurt. Cashews are also rich in omega-3s and protein, so they’re a smart snack.
