The Brevity of Our Being / Ways to Be Incredibly Happy / Classes Resume Tuesday, Sept. 4

Between the moments the stone touches the water.

Precious memories
are
like a stone
we throw
to skip across the water,
in a moment
we choose
to raise the level
of our awareness.

Between
the moments
the stone touches the water,
thoughts can intervene,
and fly away with
awareness
never before
seen.

The tide washes aplenty our footprints upon the shore.

Between the beats
of a Human Heart,
reality can seem
to be flung far away,
like a dream
within
a dream.

Our smiles
for one another,
our Hearts
compassionate in beating,
our moments
held in Loving greeting,
are like the stones
we throw,
to skip across the water
of our Sacred
Being.

Moments of Joy

The tide
washes aplenty
our footprints
upon the shore,
like so many
moments of Joy
we all too often
ignore.

There is so much
of Life to live,
when we choose
not to take,
but give.

Yes,
a lack of
understanding
has its advantages,
but not many.

There is so much of Life to live.

The Love
we dare
to share,
can inspire each
moment
to move forward
through time and space,
and spiral outward
in a never ending
trajectory
directed toward
the very Heart
of God.

  The journey of Life
cannot truly end
until begins.

And,
My Dear Friends,
the end is near
the beginning.
The exit
is through the
Gift Shop.
And
for the Gift
of God’s Love
the price is
always –
free.

Goodnight.

The Love we dare to share.

Scientifically Proven Ways
to Be Incredibly Happy

by Belle Beth Cooper,
Content Crafter at Buffer
read more

It’s easy to think of happiness as a result, but happiness is also a driver.

One example: While I’m definitely into finding ways to improve personal productivity (whether a one-day burst, or a lifetime, or things you should not do every day), probably the best way to be more productive is to just be happier. Happy people accomplish more.

Easier said than done though, right?

Actually, many changes are easy. Here are 10 science-based ways to be happier from Belle Beth Cooper, Content Crafter at Buffer, the social media management tool that lets you schedule, automate, and analyze social media updates.

Here’s Beth:

1. Exercise: 7 Minutes Could Be Enough

Think exercise is something you don’t have time for? Think again. Check out the  7 minute workout mentioned in The New York Times. That’s a workout any of us can fit into our schedules.

Exercise has such a profound effect on our happiness and well-being that it is an effective strategy for overcoming depression. In a study cited in Shawn Achor’s book The Happiness Advantage, three groups of patients treated their depression with medication, exercise, or a combination of the two. The results of this study are surprising: Although all three groups experienced similar improvements in their happiness levels early on, the follow-up assessments proved to be radically different:

The groups were then tested six months later to assess their relapse rate. Of those who had taken the medication alone, 38 percent had slipped back into depression. Those in the combination group were doing only slightly better, with a 31 percent relapse rate. The biggest shock, though, came from the exercise group: Their relapse rate was only 9 percent.

 

You don’t have to be depressed to benefit from exercise, though. Exercise can help you relax, increase your brain power, and even improve your body image, even if you don’t lose any weight.

We’ve explored exercise in depth before, and looked at what it does to our brains, such as releasing proteins and endorphins that make us feel happier.

A study in the Journal of Health Psychology found that people who exercised felt better about their bodies even when they saw no physical changes:

Body weight, shape and body image were assessed in 16 males and 18 females before and after both 6 × 40 minutes exercising and 6 × 40 minutes reading. Over both conditions, body weight and shape did not change. Various aspects of body image, however, improved after exercise compared to before.

Even if your actual appearance doesn’t change, how you feel about your body does change.

2. Sleep More: You’ll Be Less Sensitive to Negative Emotions

 

We know that sleep helps our body recover from the day and repair itself and that it helps us focus and be more productive. It turns out sleep is also important for happiness. In NutureShock, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman explain how sleep affects positivity:

3. Spend More Time With Friends/Family: Money Can’t Buy You Happiness

 

Staying in touch with friends and family is one of the top five regrets of the dying.

If you want more evidence that time with friends is beneficial for you, research proves it can make you happier right now, too.

Social time is highly valuable when it comes to improving our happiness, even for introverts. Several studies have found that time spent with friends and family makes a big difference to how happy we feel.

I love the way Harvard happiness expert Daniel Gilbert explains it:

We are happy when we have family, we are happy when we have friends and almost all the other things we think make us happy are actually just ways of getting more family and friends.

4. Get Outside More: Happiness is Maximized at 57°

In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor recommends spending time in the fresh air to improve your happiness:

Making time to go outside on a nice day also delivers a huge advantage; one study found that spending 20 minutes outside in good weather not only boosted positive mood, but broadened thinking and improved working memory…

This is pretty good news for those of us who are worried about fitting new habits into our already-busy schedules. Twenty minutes is a short enough time to spend outside that you could fit it into your commute or even your lunch break.

A UK study from the University of Sussex also found that being outdoors made people happier:

Being outdoors, near the sea, on a warm, sunny weekend afternoon is the perfect spot for most. In fact, participants were found to be substantially happier outdoors in all natural environments than they were in urban environments.

The American Meteorological Society published research in 2011 that found current temperature has a bigger effect on our happiness than variables like wind speed and humidity, or even the average temperature over the course of a day. It also found that happiness is maximized at 57 degrees (13.9°C), so keep an eye on the weather forecast before heading outside for your 20 minutes of fresh air.

The connection between productivity and temperature is another topic we’ve talked about more here. It’s fascinating what a small change in temperature can do.
.

5. Help Others: 100 Hours a Year is the Magic Number

One of the most counter-intuitive pieces of advice I found is that to make yourself feel happier, you should help others. In fact, 100 hours per year (or two hours per week) is the optimal time we should dedicate to helping others in order to enrich our lives.

If we go back to Shawn Achor’s book again, he says this about helping others:

…when researchers interviewed more than 150 people about their recent purchases, they found that money spent on activities–such as concerts and group dinners out–brought far more pleasure than material purchases like shoes, televisions, or expensive watches. Spending money on other people, called “prosocial spending,” also boosts happiness.

 

The Journal of Happiness Studies published a study that explored this very topic.

6. Practice Smiling: Reduce Pain, Improve Mood, Think Better

 

Smiling can make us feel better, but it’s more effective when we back it up with positive thoughts, according to this study:

A new study led by a Michigan State University business scholar suggests customer-service workers who fake smile throughout the day worsen their mood and withdraw from work, affecting productivity. But workers who smile as a result of cultivating positive thoughts – such as a tropical vacation or a child’s recital – improve their mood and withdraw less.

Of course it’s important to practice “real smiles” where you use your eye sockets. (You’ve seen fake smiles that don’t reach the person’s eyes. Try it. Smile with just your mouth. Then smile naturally; your eyes narrow. There’s a huge difference in a fake smile and a genuine smile.)

According to PsyBlog, smiling can improve our attention and help us perform better on cognitive tasks:

Smiling makes us feel good which also increases our attentional flexibility and our ability to think holistically. When this idea was tested by Johnson et al. (2010), the results showed that participants who smiled performed better on attentional tasks which required seeing the whole forest rather than just the trees.

A smile is also a good way to reduce some of the pain we feel in troubling circumstances:

Smiling is one way to reduce the distress caused by an upsetting situation. Psychologists call this the facial feedback hypothesis. Even forcing a smile when we don’t feel like it is enough to lift our mood slightly (this is one example of embodied cognition).

7. Plan a Trip: It Helps Even if You Don’t Actually Take One.

 

As opposed to actually taking a holiday, simply planning a vacation or break from work can improve our happiness. A study published in the journal Applied Research in Quality of Life showed that the highest spike in happiness came during the planning stage of a vacation as people enjoy the sense of anticipation:

In the study, the effect of vacation anticipation boosted happiness for eight weeks. After the vacation, happiness quickly dropped back to baseline levels for most people.

Shawn Achor has some info for us on this point, as well:

One study found that people who just thought about watching their favorite movie actually raised their endorphin levels by 27 percent.

If you can’t take the time for a vacation right now, or even a night out with friends, put something on the calendar – even if it’s a month or a year down the road. Then, whenever you need a boost of happiness, remind yourself about it.

8. Meditate: Rewire Your Brain for Happiness

Meditation is often touted as an important habit for improving focus, clarity, and attention span, as well as helping to keep you calm. It turns out it’s also useful for improving your happiness😐

In one study, a research team from Massachusetts General Hospital looked at the brain scans of 16 people before and after they participated in an eight-week course in mindfulness meditation. The study, published in the January issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuro-imaging, concluded that after completing the course, parts of the participants’ brains associated with compassion and self-awareness grew, and parts associated with stress shrank.

Meditation literally clears your mind and calms you down, it’s been often proven to be the single most effective way to live a happier life.  According to Achor, meditation can actually make you happier long-term:

Studies show that in the minutes right after meditating, we experience feelings of calm and contentment, as well as heightened awareness and empathy. And, research even shows that regular meditation can permanently rewire the brain to raise levels of happiness.

The fact that we can actually alter our brain structure through mediation is most surprising to me and somewhat reassuring that however we feel and think today isn’t permanent.

9. Move Closer to Work: A Short Commute is Worth More Than a Big House

Our commute to work can have a surprisingly powerful impact on our happiness. The fact that we tend to commute twice a day at least five days a week makes it unsurprising that the effect would build up over time and make us less and less happy.

Having a long commute is something we often fail to realize will affect us so dramatically:

… while many voluntary conditions don’t affect our happiness in the long term because we acclimate to them, people never get accustomed to their daily slog to work because sometimes the traffic is awful and sometimes it’s not.

Or as Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert put it, “Driving in traffic is a different kind of hell every day.”

We tend to try to compensate for this by having a bigger house or a better job, but these compensations just don’t work:

Two Swiss economists who studied the effect of commuting on happiness found that such factors could not make up for the misery created by a long commute.

10. Practice Gratitude: Increase Happiness and Satisfaction

This is a seemingly simple strategy but I’ve personally found it to make a huge difference to my outlook. There are lots of ways to practice gratitude, from keeping a journal of things you’re grateful for, sharing three good things that happen each day with a friend or your partner, and going out of your way to show gratitude when others help you.

In an experiment where participants took note of things they were grateful for each day, their moods were improved just from this simple practice:

The gratitude – outlook groups exhibited heightened well-being across several, though not all, of the outcome measures across the three studies, relative to the comparison groups. The effect on positive affect appeared to be the most robust finding. Results suggest that a conscious focus on blessings may have emotional and interpersonal benefits.

The Journal of Happiness studies published a study that used letters of gratitude to test how being grateful can affect our levels of happiness:

Participants included 219 men and women who wrote three letters of gratitude over a 3 week period. Results indicated that writing letters of gratitude increased participants’ happiness and life satisfaction while decreasing depressive symptoms.

Quick Final Fact: Getting Older Will Actually Make You Happier

As we get older, particularly past middle age, we tend to naturally grow happier. There’s still some debate over why this happens, but scientists have a few ideas:

Researchers, including the authors, have found that older people shown pictures of faces or situations tend to focus on and remember the happier ones more and the negative ones less.

Other studies have discovered that as people age, they seek out situations that will lift their moods – for instance, pruning social circles of friends or acquaintances who might bring them down. Still other work finds that older adults learn to let go of loss and disappointment over unachieved goals, and focus their goals on greater well being.

So if you thought getting old will make you miserable, it’s likely you’ll develop a more positive outlook than you probably have now.

How cool is that?

The Game of Life / Chemicals for ADHD? – NO! / Sept. 4 is near

sunset

A Glorious Day

As our lives
spill into each other,
they mirror
the deeper meanings
of shallow moments.
Our masks of clay
cast shadows
over moments at play,
darkening the Sunrise
of a glorious Day.

To never know
the taste of defeat,
forgive the ignorance
we meet,
and let your Heart
greet
all the Joy it desires,
and the Love
it inspires.

couple

Our lives spill into each other.

Knowing yourself
is Victory
beyond Belief.

To truly Love
others,
give them
the lingering Sunset
of your Smiles,
the desire to walk
many, many miles,
in the shadow
of your fascination
with Life.

What is truly
real,
is every moment
we feel
Love
is in the air,
Love is
everywhere,
and here
and now
and there.

In the shadow of your fascination with Life.

True Love
is playing the
Game of Life
with no one
keeping score,
as the rhythms of Life
we feel,
and the rest
we ignore.

There are moments
when we fade into
what may seem
like the rewind
of yesterday,
our of sync
with time,
and not on
a scale we deem
real.

The Rhythms of Life

But
the ravaged places
of past spaces,
is a future of
hand-me-downs.
So Live
in the unmissable montage
of the melodies
of this moment.
Each Life,
lived with dedication
to be
in the now,
cries out loud
with disbelief
at all the Beauty
in its Being.

My Dear Friends,
don’t
just leave your
precious Children
in your will,
leave them
the will,
to truly live
and always Love
everyone,
and every Living Thing.

The unmissable montage of the melodies of this moment.

Those in Love
with Life
are never apart
from the Love
of God.

We fade into what may seem like the rewind of yesterday.

Chemicals for ADD and ADHD?

Something is wrong,
but not with your precious child.
God, in His Wisdom, has never created a child
He did not deeply Love.
The concern you express for your child
is part of that abiding Love.

Please consult with your physician
and ask him or her to remove your child
from all the harmful chemicals
that will create more and more issues as time passes.
The research that is readily available
has led to the conclusion that
no child should be subjected to the long term effects
of these substances.
And very few longitudinal studies
have been conducted.

Please type the name of your child’s prescription(s)
combined with two more words,
“____   and cancer“,
and read the results.
Yes,
you will be horrified.

The Drug Enforcement Administration
has classified Methylphenidate (Ritalin)
as a Schedule II drug, comparable to
Cocaine.

Methylphenidate
is also one of the top ten abused prescription drugs.
Ritalin causes constriction of veins and arteries,
causing the heart to work overtime
and inevitably leading to damage to the organ itself.

It is a violation of parent’s rights
when they are not told of the unscientific nature
of so-called disorders such as ADHD
or the risks of the treatments involving drugs
like Ritalin.

Did you know that by labeling your child with ADHD,
you are actually labeling them with a mental illness?

Did you know that a child taking a psycho-tropic,
psycho-stimulant drugs like Ritalin
after the age of 12
is ineligible for military service?

Why?
What do they know that we do not know?

Did you know
that the subjective checklists that are being used
as criteria for diagnosis are very similar
to the checklists used to determine
Gifted and Talented Children?

These two checklists are almost
identical.

My Dear Friends,
bright children are not passive players
in the game of life.
They are active.
Such activity is a NATURAL by-product
of high intelligence.

Get on your knees and Thank God
you have NORMAL, intelligent and yes,
ACTIVE children.
What a Blessing!

Did you know that there are studies,
such as the Berkeley Study,
that contend that Ritalin and other stimulants
further raise the risk of drug abuse?
Ritalin makes the brain more susceptible
to the addictive power of cocaine
and doubles the risk of abuse.

Children are dying from ADHD Drugs

Sadly, the deaths of many children
has remained unexposed and suppressed for so long
because there is a tremendous amount
of money and profit at stake for so many.

Between 1990 and 2000 there were 186 deaths
from methylphenidate reported
to the FDA MedWatch program,
a voluntary reporting scheme,
the numbers of which represent no more
than 10 to 20% of the actual incidence.

We need to expose the health risks, dangers, deaths
and suicides
that are a direct result of administering Ritalin
and other psychiatric drugs to children.
read more

Does Ritalin Increase Cancer Risk in Children?

Research is raising concerns about the drug Ritalin,
suggesting that children who take it
may have an increased risk of cancer.

All 12 of the children included in a University of Texas study
experienced an increase in chromosome abnormalities
just three months after starting Ritalin.
Chromosome damage has been linked
to heightened cancer risk
and to other health problems.

Lead researcher Randa A. El-Zein, MD, PhD, and colleagues
found a THREEFOLD increase
in the level of chromosomal damage
in the samples taken after the children were started
on Ritalin.
read more

Several animal studies have also suggested
a link between Ritalin use
and cancer.

         Come on Folks!
Wake UP!

What needs to change
is the academic environment.
It needs to allow for normal active children.
Hyperactive children simply do not exist.
Most boys are highly active
and for a good reason.
It relates to the survival of the species.
Think about it!

And common LOGIC dictates what is so apparent:
WE ARE A PART OF NATURE
NOT APART FROM NATURE.

Your child is acting normal!
Put him or her outside in the fresh air
with God’s bountiful sunshine
and allow for activity.

Take advantage
of the high activity level
and enroll your child in a great sports program.
Wear him or her out on the soccer field
or playing a ball game like baseball
or camping out with a Scout Troop, etc., etc. etc.
Instead of drugging up your kid,
set him up for recognition for his athletic ability.
Take advantage of the GIFT
of being a healthy active
HUMAN being.

Don’t bury your loved one in an early grave
because you lack the courage to say NO.
Don’t just say it,
shout  “NO”!

There is Beauty in courage.
There is no need to water the flowers
you place on the grave
of your precious child with your tears.
Tears should be shed only for
Joy.

INVITE the dim wit who insisted
your child become a lab rat
to take the drug instead.
Yes,
insist they go on the drug first.
Look into their horrified eyes
when they scream,
“What?”

bix 2

If you are not a strong advocate for your child,
NO ONE WILL BE.
That is why God gave you HIS child –
to shelter the deeply loved from the storms of Life,
to protect, to Honor, to serve, and LOVE
above all things on this Earth.
And Love my Friend,
is courage.

Please take the time to research these substances
and have your precious son or daughter
removed from them.
I would also change my physician.
If he or she has taken the convenient,
and profitable way,
to medically treat your family,
then he or she needs to be
removed from service.

Obviously,
the good Doctor has not researched the topic
to the degree enough to reach a compassionate,
reliably informed and reasonable conclusion.

The qualifications of physicians also follow,
like everything else in Life,
the bell-shaped curve of probability.
Some are at the lower end of expectations
relative to the awareness of what they do.
Some will write a prescription for anything.
Just be sure to pay the bill on your way out.

Motor vehicle deaths as recently as 2013 totaled
32,719.
But, in recent years,
there has been an annual average
|of about 400,000 drug related deaths
and serious injuries in a hospital
that could have been prevented
(those we know about).
Which leads me to conclude
that the most dangerous place in this country
is not on America’s highways,
but in the doctor’s waiting room.

Like Jesus said,
“Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
They truly do not know.

Your instinctive and abiding Love for your child
allows for insight into what is happening.
Please follow your instincts.
God has given them to you for a reason.
And that reason always points to His abundant Love
for you and your child.

Your child is perfection,
as are all of God’s children.

Please remove your children from all substances
that tarnish the Will of God.
What is truly needed
is the abundant Love of our Lord
that flows through you.
That is all your children
will ever need.

“The point,
is for Beauty.
Simplistic, joyous Beauty;
complicated, twisted Beauty
– the Beauty of courage,
the Beauty of loss.
For if there is a Something Else out there,
it is surely hidden
among the Beauty of this World.”

She has been a treasured Blessing
in my Life
and so very many others.

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

Who falls in Love
With their beauty,
Delights in their delicate aroma,
Absorbs all the colors
That take your breath
Away.

We look far beyond the beauty.

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.

is thought.

Thought-waves are cosmic waves

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.

     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.

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.

When seen through the eyes
Of those who are blessed with love.”

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

the mind of God,

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.

Bring the long looked for day;
O why these years of waiting here,
These ages of decay?”

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.

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.

His Love is Love Infinity / Abstract Art and Illogical Thought vs. the Chaos of Cancer / Flight Deck

“In each moment
Is Infinity.
For the Love you feel
Will always be,
Here and now –
A mirror
To each moment
To be.”

I cannot tell you who these Clowns are. Natalie and Jake would get very upset with me if I did.

I cannot tell you who these Clowns are. Natalie and Jake would get very upset with me if I did.

In the Blink of God’s Eye,
A chance encounter
May bring two people together,
Bringing them
Into the same space, the same time,
Bestowing Gifts unknown before,
Allowing us to rethink truths
We have ingrained in our minds,
In our hearts.

This encounter can become priceless.
It can produce moments
Of such deep reflection,
That we are changed,
Perhaps forever.

In the petting zoo we find new friends.

In our Petting Zoo we find new friends.

It can help us remember
Who we are,
And how much in Love
We have been –
With life, with love, with each other.
Such a moment can save us
From ourselves,
From the past,
From the future.

It can make you feel
Truly Loved.
It can bring you
Joy.

Close your eyes,
My friend,
So that you
May see
again.

Reflections 2

Look into the mirror Of time.

Look into the mirror
Of time,
To a moment when
You were not alone,
When your heart
Was beating in time
With another,
When together you were one,
Just one.

When you walked
Hand in hand,
You and your friend,
And time
Moved not within,
And you,
Not the world,
Would spin.

Call out their name,
Forgive the past with them.
Your memory is more
Than a mirror,
It is you.

AROUND SCHOOL 008-c #1 Long Before We Met

Deep within the recesses of a cloud formation may lie the abstract design that is a key to unlocking the chaotic behavior of cancer. Is the answer blowing in the wind?

Each moment
Is Eternal,
Time standing still.
It is you, breathless waiting
In morning sun,
Always near to each moment
You were in Love.

Love can never be measured
By the hours in a day.
Filtered like the evening sun
Passing through the falling leaves,
The precious flow of our tears
Measures all the joy,
Cascading down to
The Soil of our Soul,
To renew our Hope,
Restore our Faith,
Much like the rain.

The Love we seek
Is reflect in Time.
Open your eyes
To the illusion
Of Life in living.
Close them again
And Love in remembering.

The Fort Worth Stock Show was fun.

Looking back we forward see.
God’s Love is now,
And forever to be,

The Ever Ebbing Tide
Of a deepening, endless sea.

In each moment
The Love of God
Will always be,
Here and now,
The Mirror
Of each moment to be.
His Love is Love
Infinity.

He wants you alive
With Love again,
And in Love with Life.

Abstract Art and Illogical Thought
vs. the Chaos of Cancer
by Travis Carter Allen
And William C. Anderson

Deep within the recesses of a Modern Art Museum, or art disguised as graffiti or some cloud formation or an outrageously disjointed thought may lie the abstract design, pattern or startling idea that is a key to insert into the lock of our antiquated, linear thinking. And we wait to hear the magical click which will open to find a universal cure for cancer.

Now I'm scared!

Now I’m scared!

We are waging war with cancer in conventional ways and directly. But we combat a life competitive force with an arsenal of disadvantages. We are facing an opponent that functions in an incomprehensible manner, because its structure and its life is chaotic. And it is becoming more and more obvious that we cannot win this battle within the confinements and limitations of the structured thought processes we have become habituated to. Such linearized thinking has not produced desired results. We are loosing the war while winning few battles on highly selective fronts. What is needed is a general, “theory of everything”, relative to combating the highly chaotic behavior of other predatory living organisms. read more

Jack and Kylee bask in the sun and the sand.

Jack and Kylee bask in the sun and the sand.

Perhaps, it behooves us to stop thinking so much, since our thought processes are prejudiced by artificial, man made environmental structures (not found in nature) such as straight lines and ninety degree angles. Perhaps we should intuit, with our hearts and other-worldly wisdom (relating to an imaginary or spiritual world) about something that is so chaotic in its behavior that it is incomprehensible to the thinking human organism, which functions within such limited and habitual structural constraints. Our predisposition to the linearity of environmentally induced per-programed mental processing has eluded us from thoughtful non-linearized reflection and discourse. And this has resulted in little real progress. It has become obvious that we cannot win this battle against cancer in this way.

040Friends, if we are going to act with any significant measurable success we must stop thinking as logical beings and think illogically (chaotically) or stop thinking with our intermediate repository of memory engrams (the brain) and engage more long term memory storage, using intuition and other dimensions of memory, such as the heart. The heart always remembers what has been emoted as love and fear and harm, much longer and with more impact-fulness than is possible with the human brain. Thank God we sometimes forget. But the human heart remembers.

Perhaps we should utilize the abundance of neglected historical records, including those handed down verbally through generations of Spiritually guided indigenous people, native citizens, in which we find advantages gained through the elements of simple faith, subjectivity and creativity. These records are replete with example and truly abundant but are becoming endangered. They include elements of the rather haphazard manipulation (dependent upon or characterized by mere chance) of factors related to the relativity of reality and the mis-utilization of time factors (creating advantages of time, eliminating obsolete territorial primacy, deployment of reinforcement resources (you can call them troops), chaotic cellular research, non-linear thought processes and so forth.

The Stock Show was very informative.

The Stock Show was very informative.

We should also, however, plan for the intelligent (as best as we can define intelligence) and well established elements of retreat (recognizing where we have been in fruitless endeavor), regrouping (placing hitherto unknown and unrelated social factions together), creative counter measures, etc.

We are dealing with a life-force apparently MORE intelligent, when it comes to fundamental survival, than we are and much more willing to sacrifice, do whatever is necessary, in order to continue existence.

This chaotic life force, cancer, is also a primary and elemental force in evolution, and therefore, must be respected and not totally eliminated. A good example of non-linear, non-logical and irrational thought provided to combat the devastating disease(s) of cancer lies in research using a modified HIV virus – yes, the virus that causes AIDS – to fight cancer. In one case a little girl named Emma is now in remission from leukemia as a result of the so-far successful treatment. Completely eliminating life threatening entities removes future potential and vital tools in our arsenal to combat other disorders and disease. read more

We are also dealing with a fundamental deficiency of appreciation for illogicality. It is our considered opinion that we need to recruit and employ unusual savants and similar resources, individuals with remarkable photographic memory characteristics, to be “at elbow” in assisting others involved in creative discourse such as “brainstorming” forbidding judgmental and negative elements. Their particular gifts, which are beyond our comprehension, can be employed by priming them with preparatory pure data/information streams coupled with relevant and, in particular, non-relevant, seemingly irrelevant and unrelated factoids and rivulets of thought. These could be streamed in illogical and irrational methods, as allied discordant rationals and highly subjective and unrelated data streams set to collide with unexpected results. At this point, large capacity high speed computers be employed to harvest, combine or join in unusual patterns and analyze particles of result (unexpected conclusions).

018

We enjoyed many educational exhibits.

These seemingly irrelevant bits of information/data could also then be subjectively (without expected end results) and abstractly analyzed and assessed by intuitive savants, and others known for irrational/illogical thinking, to harvest conclusions that have, thus far, eluded researchers in the field.

We utilize instruments such as the Hadron Collider to stream particles toward each other to harvest the unexpected and unknown by-products. Ideas could be subjected to similar manipulation. Somehow, courageously colliding ideas may generate small, but significant, by-products.

What if we took the same financial resources expended on this large collider to finance placing the most outrageous, obnoxious, irreverent and illogical thinking human beings together, so could have their ideas collide and coalesce. We could harvest the by-products to our advantage, if we can recognize possible positive results with our linearly oriented minds.

Perhaps, the laws of sub-atomic particle physics, which are totally different than those operating above that level, can open up new avenues to wander aimlessly down and without the linear destruction that accompanies normal thought processes.

to love and be loved.

I Love You

Life has taught us that Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward, together in the same direction. – Antoine de Saint-Expurey

“I Love You”
Are but three,
You, what you dream,
And what you see.

They say something much more
Than they say,
And harbor within
A world you cannot contain.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life:     that word is Love.                         – Sophocles

They are not words,
Oh, Keeper of the Keys.
They are the secrets
That unlock the doors
To hearts in every place,
In every space.

And they are but three.
And they are but yours.
Yours to share,
Yours in Prayer,
To climb three stairs,
To Love so sublime.
They are a poem
In life’s rhyme
,

All in rhythm
With Celestial Time.

Noah turns 13.

Congratulations to Noah    who turned 13.

Three simple sounds
To say what God feels
For you, and for me,
Today, not never,
Now and forever.

You cannot truly know
What you cannot feel.
And feeling not
Conveys less than you are.
And you are all the world
To someone in need,
Who, hearing nothing,
Feels not the beat
Of your heart,
Or his own.

020They are but three
Harbingers of freedom.
They open the wounds
Of a lonely heart,
To feeling,
To healing,
To Loving again.

You can share this love,
This moment.
You, and you alone
Can feel the way,
Convey your Love for another
On a special day,
This day,
Father, Mother, Sister, Brother,
Beloved of another.

We have two new friends.

We have two new friends.

Your life is a Prayer,
Your Love, always there,
To discover,
To give,
To share.

That resides in
Heaven Above

According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece left on the table.

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece on the table.

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies –
and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

      • Genetically modified food
      • Most laundry detergents
      • Commercial hair dyes

      • Canola oil
      • Canned tomatoes

    •Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.
    A great time was had by all.

    A great time was had by all.

    My friends, until we start electing people to represent us, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and loving people to represent us.Frankly, these individuals need to love us more than they love themselves.

    It was a delightful time.

    It was a delightful time.

    These loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous heart of this Nation, there is no hope. Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

    And yes, it is a cancer of the heart, our heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
    is that good men do nothing.”
