The Greatest Reveal of All / Consciousness Lives In Quantum State After Death / Sept. 3 (Tuesday) is the First Day of Fall Semester

We are all drawn to the Miraculous.
Oh,
if only we knew.
The Greatest of all Miracles,
is within
me and you.

Life,
given to Life,
forms a Perfect Circle
shaped by fate
in ways we cannot predict
or understand.

We
are so Beautiful and truly Amazing.
Many moments
pass us by in the void
of never being aware,
that WE
were created by
the Beautiful Mind
of God.
And this,
My Friend,
is the Greatest Reveal
of all.

I have watched
the setting Sun
over and over again,
as it brings my Life
back to me,
and takes away
my breath.

And you
may have Life
in all its Splendor,
and in its magnificent Beauty,
in all its True Glory,
restored to you,
in this Life
and the next.

Simply,
be aware.

In the Cathedral of God,
the vast illuminated Sky
is Holy
Mere Words are paltry and weak
to describe infinite Beauty.
Only the Heart
can feel
what God Reveals
on a sunlit evening,
when a fleeting glimpse
of the Beauty of God’s Love
is revealed in this World,
a mere sliver
of His abundant delight
in the Beauty of His Earth.

He delights
in our delight.
He wants us to truly
enjoy
the Bounty of His Love,
and the Beauty of His World,
in the brief moment
we are here.

This Earth
is
a tiny Paradise
in the vast and violent Universe.
Mankind
has been given the opportunity
to live in this Paradise
on Earth.

My Dear Friends,
we have the power
to sustain Life
and allow the creation of our Beautiful World
to benefit every Living Thing.

“One look at Love
and you may see,
it weaves a web over mystery.
All raveled treads can rend apart,
for Hope has a place
in a Lovers Heart.”
Click to play song
– by Enya

Our Human consciousness
can change things
for the benefit of
all.

Our material World,
is temporary and fleeting.
But
God’s Love is Eternal.
It lives within
YOU.
And there
it shall
always abide.
.

To keep Peace in your Soul
and sustain the Natural Harmony around you,
listen to your precious Heart,
and do not awake
from God’s Dream.

The Holy Word of God
has much to say
about the Beauty and Goodness
of the place
He has given
to call
Home.
.

Whenever the setting Sun
brushes across the Horizon
of His Sky,
in a magnificent mystic myriad
of colors, orange and red and beyond,
and lays down the carpet
for moonlight to spread across
the depths of our delight,
we can experience
the stir our
Souls.

 God
shows us
what is precious.
He allows us
to see the Beautiful Love
for which we can only be
grateful.

Goodnight.

“I see trees of green
and red roses too.
I’ll watch them bloom for me and you.
And I think to myself
What a Wonderful World.
Well, I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white.
And the brightness of day
I like the dark.

And I think to myself
what a Wonderful World.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
And also on the faces of people passing by.
I see friends shaking hands saying
How do you do?
They’re really saying I,
I Love you.”
Edgar Yipsel “Yip” Harburg

Physicists Claim that Consciousness Lives

in Quantum State After Death

The Soul and Quantum Physics

click here to read more

I knew the time would soon come when physicists would tackle the survival after physical life question. This article represents an important early step.  Written by Janey Tracey in June 17, 2014, and published online at Outer Places.

.

Does quantum mechanics predict the existence of a spiritual “soul”? Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of life after death.” They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantum mechanics, proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons, possess the properties of both particles and waves. These physicists claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body dichotomy.
.
If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead, then there is an existence after death (speaking in purely physical terms). Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr, former head of the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich, posits that, just as a particle “writes” all of its information on its wave function, the brain is the tangible “floppy disk” on which we save our data, and this data is then “uploaded” into the spiritual quantum field. Continuing with this analogy, when we die the body, or the physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the data on the computer, lives on.

“What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. Which this world is rooted in. In this way, our lives in this plane of existence are encompassed, surrounded, by the afterworld already. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal,” says Dürr.

Dr. Christian Hellwig of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, found evidence that information in our central nervous system is phase encoded, a type of coding that allows multiple pieces of data to occupy the same time. He said, “Our thoughts, our will, our consciousness and our feelings show properties that could be referred to as Spiritual properties.
.
No direct interaction with the known fundamental forces of natural science, such as gravitation, electromagnetic forces, etc. can be detected in the spiritual. On the other hand, however, these spiritual properties correspond exactly to the characteristics that distinguish the extremely puzzling and wondrous phenomena in the quantum world.”

Physicist Professor Robert Jahn of Princeton University concluded that if consciousness can exchange information in both directions with the physical environment, then it can be attributed with the same “molecular binding potential” as physical objects, meaning that it must also follow the tenets of quantum mechanics. Quantum physicist David Bohm, a student and friend of Albert Einstein, was of a similar opinion. He stated, “The results of modern natural sciences only make sense if we assume an inner, uniform, transcendent reality that is based on all external data and facts. The very depth of human consciousness is one of them.”

Far Better Than Our Dreams / Much Ado About Nothing

As we read
between the lines
of Life,
echoes of
silence
open a window
in the dark of night,
to let us see
Love
shine.

We see
in the night,
by feeling this
Light.

We are particles
reflecting
each other,
illuminated
by the Love
of God.

Life
is a mirror
of the Soul.

          Particles reflecting each other.

The arch
of rising
Love,
becomes a Beautiful Rainbow
in your Sky,
reflecting the vibrant colors
of the will to be.
.

Love,
My Dear Friends,
is
what we are,
and all we truly
long to be.
.
Life
can only be
as deep
as our acceptance
of our Self,
as our acceptance
of the Love
that is you
and me.

We chase
Time
through the spiraling unwind,
as our Lives
revolve around,
and spill into,
each other.

Yes,
there are other
Laws of gravity
that lead us,
through Prayer,
to the Harmony
of the
Spheres.

As we remember
to forget
and thus Live
to forgive,
our Garden of Flowers,
painted with passersby,
is filled
with their
Love.

The Beauty of Life
can
lead us to realize
the Reality
of God’s Love
is far better
than our dreams.

Goodnight.

Our Theatrical performances
on Monday and Tuesday evenings
were, again, Truly Beautiful.

I never cease to be
deeply moved and impressed
by our talented students
under the Loving Direction
of our gifted Teacher
and Director
George X Rodriguez.

God never ceases
to provide a Colorful World
filled with warmth and a healthy dose of
vibrant Beauty for our audiences,
as our precious Children
perform in the Natural Beauty of
God’s great outdoors.

I am in awe of such talent
as we were witness to
this week.
.
Last night’s production of
Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare,
was simply
Beautiful.

My sincere appreciation
and admiration
goes to our truly gifted children,
our gracious parents
and George X Rodriguez.
.
You are a
Treasured Inspiration
to everyone.

Thank You!

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
by M. Fathima
March 16, 2019
PM Research News
click here to read more

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.

The Stranger Within Is No More / Reasons to Eat Organic / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Production)

You may think
this Life is yours
alone,
and the night
will never end.

Every precious Life
is a deeply personal story,
an Odyssey of discovery,
and ultimately,
an encounter with the Author,
who reads every
line.

What plays out
in the Story of our Life,

is at the Heart
of our brief journey.

What is written
can become a Wonderful Book,
a Book that advances us
in consciousness,

and takes us from where we were,
to a place of understanding,
a beautiful encounter
with the Purpose
of Life.

             Love is a reflection.

In every precious Life
there is heartache
and pain.
But through the Clouds
and the rain,

we CAN see
Love shine
again.

My Dear Friends,
Love can NEVER hide
if you keep looking
for it.
For God’s Love

abides.
And
you may not be aware,
but His Love

is looking for
YOU.

It is here
and there,
and everywhere.
For God is
Love,
and His Love
is all around,
and to be found
in

YOU.

             A Beautiful Encounter.

“Love isn’t Love
‘Til you give it away.”
Oscar Hammerstein

The Love you
share,
you give
to you.
Love
always becomes

a reflection.
And you are
a reflection
of God’s Love.
Your Love
is reflected
in the eyes
of everyone you
come to
Love.

“And, in the end
The Love you take
is equal to the Love
you make.”
Paul McCartney

 You are
so amazingly beautiful!
So Divine.

YOU
are a Heavenly Masterpiece
of Creation.
Angelic,
Glorious
and Divine.

The Heart of the Universe
is Love Divine.
The Mind of the Universe
is God Divine.
And you,

YOU are
Heart, Soul and Spirit

a Treasure
to cherish
and be Loved by God
above all things on
Earth.

           Lift back the curtain.

Surrender
your fragile Heart.
And to whom
do we surrender?

To God.
And
to everyone.

“Surrender your Heart to God,
turn to Him in Prayer,
and give up your sins – even those you do in secret.
Then you won’t be ashamed;
you will be confident and fearless.
Your troubles will go away
like water beneath a bridge,

and your darkest night
will be brighter than noon.”
Job 13-17

My Dear Friends,
Love
will find you.
It has been searching for you.
Look around.
You will see it
in the eyes of everyone,
and every Living thing
you meet.
This 
is the Love you felt
on the day
of your Child’s birth,
and
on the day
your were born.
.
The Love of
God
is the only thing
that is real,
that truly
exists.

Lift back the curtain
on a secret World
most of us
have no idea exists.
Do so with patience.
A new perspective
will encourage you to engage
the enigma of Life with Love
in a profoundly personal way.

Be unwavering
in the unconventional task
of coming to know
thyself.

The pangs of insecurity,
the disappointments of Life,
that never truly existed,

will dissolve in your mind
and melt in your Heart,

with your Trust
in the Lord our God.

We are part
of an Infinite Whole,
a Chapter

in a Never Ending Story,
that advances us in Consciousness

and takes us from where we were
before we were Created
by God,
to a new place
in understanding
Love.

As Children of God,
we cannot be explained
in simple terms.  
We are Infinitely multifaceted, 
fascinating, uplifting,
and Loving.

At the Heart
of your Story
is Love.
And your Author
is our Creator
– God,
who is Love.

Share a moment one day
amidst the wonder
of the Beautiful grasses
and
Flowers of the field,

immersed in the Beauty
of your Nature and the trees,
and the birds and other
Beautiful Creations.
.
Talk with God about
everything
and nothing,
and you.

There comes a point
in every sincere conversation

when you feel a strong and delightful
connection

to something Life affirming,
when you realize
  you are on the wavelength
of True Reality.
At that moment
of realization about Life,
pause,
and let God
into your precious Heart.
Invite Him in.
Say a Prayer
of Thanksgiving
for Life,
for Love,
for THIS moment.

He is listening
to your every Prayer,
and He is Loving
every moment
you spend with
Him.

There is a Beauty
  in these moments
that defies any explanation.
Later,

  you will come to recognize
the synchronous intensity
of the moment,
a moment you granted
to God.

And the Stranger Within
Is No More.

Goodnight.

   Essential Reasons to Eat Organic Food

Organic food was the only option for thousands of years.  Now, with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and genetically-modified foods, organic is still the best option.  Here are 17 reasons to eat organic food:

  1. Genetically-modified foods were unleashed on the environment and the public by corporations like Monsanto without prior testing to determine their safety.  In other words, eating genetically-modified foods (which most people in in large amounts) is participating in a long-term, uncontrolled experiment. Choose organic to avoid participating in this experiment.
    .
  2. More and more research is coming in about the health threat of genetically-modified food.  The results range from intestinal damage, allergies, liver or pancreatic problems, testicular cellular changes, tumors, and even death in the experimental animals. For more information, read the excellent books by Jeffrey M. Smith Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette. I’ll discuss more of the problems linked with GMOs in upcoming blogs. Eating third-party certified organic foods or those that are guaranteed to be grown from organic seed helps protect you from the health consequences of GMOs.

4 Potential Health Risks of Eating GMO Foods

  1.  Fruits and vegetables are real food, not pesticide factories. Eighteen percent of all genetically-modified seeds (and therefore foods that grow from them) are engineered to produce their own pesticides.  Research shows that these seeds continue producing pesticides inside your body once you’ve eaten the food grown from them! Foods that are actually pesticide factories…no thanks.
    .
  2. They’re free of neurotoxins – toxins that are damaging to brain and nerve cells. A commonly-used class of pesticides called organophosphates was originally developed as a toxic nerve agent during World War I. When there was no longer a need for them in warfare, industry adapted them to kill pests on foods. Many pesticides are still considered neurotoxins.  Learn more about pesticides in The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox Plan.
    .
  3. They’re supportive of growing children’s brains and bodies.  Children’s growing brains and bodies are far more susceptible to toxins than adults.  Choosing organic helps feed their bodies without the exposure to pesticides and genetically-modified organisms, both of which have a relatively short history of use (and therefore safety).
    .
  4. In study after study, research from independent organizations
    consistently shows organic food is higher in nutrients than traditional foods.  Research shows that organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, and the minerals calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium. (For more information, check out The Life Force Diet).
    .
  5. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that pesticides pollute the primary drinking source for half the American population. Organic farming is the best solution to the problem. Buying organic helps reduce pollution in our drinking water.
    .
  6. Organic food is earth-supportive (when big business keeps their hands out of it). Organic food production has been around for thousands of years and is the sustainable choice for the future.  Compare that to modern agricultural practices that are destructive of the environment through widespread use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers and have resulted in drastic environmental damage in many parts of the world.
    .
  7. Organic food choices grown on small-scale organic farms help ensure independent family farmers can create a livelihood. Consider it the domestic version of fair trade.
    .
  8. Most organic food simply tastes better than the pesticide-grown counterparts.
    .
  9. Organic food is not exposed to gas-ripening like some non-organic fruits and vegetables (like bananas).
    .
  10. Organic farms are safer for farm workers. Research at the Harvard School of Public Health found a 70% increase in Parkinson’s disease among people exposed to pesticides. Choosing organic foods means that more people will be able to work on farms without incurring the higher potential health risk of Parkinson’s or other illnesses.
    .
  11. Organic food supports Wildlife Habitats. Even with commonly used amounts of pesticides, wildlife is being harmed by exposure to pesticides.
    .
  12. Eating organic may reduce your cancer risk.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides, and 30% of insecticides potentially cancer-causing.  It is reasonable to think that the rapidly increasing rates of cancer are at least partly linked to the use of these carcinogenic pesticides.
    .
  13. Choosing organic meat lessens your exposure to antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and drugs that find their way into the animals and ultimately into you.
    .
  14. Organic food is tried and tested. By some estimates genetically-modified food makes up 80% of the average person’s food consumption. Genetic modification of food is still experimental. Avoid being part of this wide scale and uncontrolled experiment.
    .
  15. Organic food supports greater biodiversity.  Diversity is fundamental to life on this planet. Genetically-modified and non-organic food is focused on high yield monoculture and is destroying biodiversity.

Perishable and Momentary / Precious Moments / Friday and Monday: Easter Holidays (NO school)

As Rivers
of Time
flow
into Oceans
of Life,
Wisdom and understanding
are imparted in many spheres
of thought.

So much of Life is
illusory
and misunderstood.
It is difficult
to navigate Life
under these circumstances.
And many
never succeed.

It is difficult to navigate Life.

God made us
to be
Eternally Joyful.
And the Holy Bible
is God’s Guidebook
to Joy.
It is
a Divine Prescription
to a Happy Life.

What it prescribes
brings Infinite Joy.

“You lead me in the path of Life;
I experience absolute Joy
in Your Presence;
You always give me sheer delight.”
Psalm 16:11

.
My Dear Friends,
true happiness
can never be achieved
through perishable and momentary
Worldly things.
Eternal Happiness,
unending Joy and Contentment,
is realizing
self and God.

     Choose to observe it and give it LIFE.

Quantum mechanics
states that particles do not assume velocity or position
until they are observed.
There is no existence without
perception
.
The physical world exists
only
as sensory data in the perception of the mind,
not as a substance or a thing
in itself.

“Trust
in the LORD with all your Heart,
and do not lean on your own
understanding.”
Proverbs 3:5

My Friends,
we must bend our fragile minds
to the Will of God
and to the real Nature of His World
to become wiser tomorrow
than we are today.

“Get Wisdom; get insight;
do not forget,
and do not turn away
from the Words of My Mouth.”
Proverbs 4:5 

It is difficult to comprehend
that everything on Earth
will not exist in a definite form
until
it is observed,
until YOU
will it into existence.

Nothing in your Life
will exist,
until YOU
choose to observe it
and give it
Life.

                          Find Beauty in Life.

Our Happiness
is built upon the foundation
of a calm, stable mind
that lives in the present moment
and finds Beauty in Life
at every step.

Living in the moment
is not easy.
Our thoughts can become overwhelmed
by regrets about the past
or anxiety about the future.
These thoughts make it very hard,
if not impossible,
to enjoy the present –
to truly Live
in THIS very precious
moment.

We simply cannot and must not
live in the past,
which we can never alter,
or in a future
that may never exist.

A healthy and positive mental state
which leads to Happiness
MUST include:

Love,
Compassion,
Patience
and Generosity.

Goodnight.

“When consciousness is disengaged from objects,
Liberation from the forms
of the World-containing Space, of Time, and of Law
is attained.”
Franklin Merrell-Wolff

Precious Moments

Life provides us with a few moments,
precious moments,
to capture a reflection of Real Love.
And today I share one of those with you
in the photograph of Scarlett
with one of her many friends.
The student is Katy.
And she is the Child
that brought tears to my eyes
one day
with the softly spoken and gentle words,
“I miss Scarlett”.

Well,
I miss her too.

Our friends,
be they large or small,
children or pets,
wild ducks or even a small spider
hard at work spinning an intricate web,
teach us so much about Love and laughter
and Life.
They teach us to greet each day with Joy,
to have fun and play
and savor the the flavors of Life.
And importantly,
they teach us to be kind.
They are among Life’s greatest teachers.
And the greatest lesson they offer
is to Love one another
unconditionally.

Scarlett,
in her dying breath,
as I held her in my trembling arms,
taught me one last lesson –
that Life is brief
at best.

We need to open up our arms
and never pass by
any living creature
without sharing a moment of Joy,
for Tomorrow may
never
come
again.

 

                  Katy and Scarlett                              sharing a precious moment of Joy.

The Eternal Reality / Through Your Child’s Eyes / Friday: At School (Shakespeare Play Preparation) 

To know of the Eternal Reality,
silence your thoughts.

Reality can be perceived
through a clear and peaceful mind.
Deep Meditation and Prayer
enables us
to reveal what is truly
Real.

“. . . when thou Prayest,
enter into thy closet
and when thou has shut thy door,
Pray to thy Father
which is in secret.”

Matthew 6:5-6

Whenever we are thinking,
we are not mentally at the place
where we are thinking.
Our thoughts
take us to another
time and place.

When we confront this
web of illusion
we call Life and living,
we come closer to the boundaries
of Spiritual awareness.
And
we realize more and more
that explanations of the Infinite
cannot be attained using
finite means.

Within the illusion of physical reality,
it is not possible
using its own internal methods and concepts
to fully understand it.
By accessing a higher level of awareness,
beyond the boundaries of
‘physical illusion’,
we escape constraints imposed upon us
by the finite physical World.

           A more complete picture.

You,
like the Infinite from which you came,
are part of an Eternal reality.
And,
like
the Eternal void,
every Child of God
is filled with Infinite Love
and Infinite possibilities.

My Dear Friends,
experience deep meditation
and Prayer
as a profound silence
beyond all words, thoughts, feelings, and sensations
“The still point of the turning World,”
as T. S. Eliot called it.

Philosophers and poets and sages
throughout all of our Human history,
have valued the experience
of being in touch
with the source
of their Consciousness.

        To another time and place.

Those in times passed
gained access to Spiritual Dimensions
by deep meditation and Prayer,
to a perspective beyond the physical.
And,
they attained a more complete picture
of reality.
The Human Being
is an amazing, brilliantly designed
Spiritual Organism,
capable of stunning and amazing feats
of conscious expansion.

Many
attest to the Miracles of Meditation
and Prayer,
and how it has changed
their lives.

“I gotta take a little time,
A little time to think things over.
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older.
Now this mountain I must climb.
Feels like a World upon my shoulders,
And through the clouds I see Love shine.
It keeps me warm as Life grows colder.
In my Life there’s been heartache and pain.
I don’t know if I can face it again.
Can’t stop now,
I’ve traveled so far.

To change this lonely Life
I wanna know what Love is
I want you to show me.”
Mick Jones
play song

To perceive this moment,
be a part of the reality
revealed
through your Love.

Walk in Nature
with your Lord.
Look to the Light.
There you are!
Beautiful.
Your Love is so Beautiful.
It is the Light
that shines in your
Heart.

Goodnight.

See the World through your child’s eyes

When our children talk to us, or present us with challenging behavior, our natural instinct is to dive in and fix problems – or fix our children.

We talk too much, and we become autobiographical.

Everything we say is from our own point of view. Our natural reactions are rarely understanding – yet that is what our children need from us.

If our children are experiencing emotions that are ‘inconvenient’ to us and that may be challenging, the most effective thing we can do is respond to their distress with emotional first-aid.

When we enter a child’s World and empathically reflect their feelings, they regulate their emotions more quickly, they feel safer, and they also understand that what they are experiencing is normal.

Walking Out of the Night / Mushrooms reduce risk of mild brain decline / Friday: Fort Worth Zoo

Angels sing
in amazing Harmony,
as
the Love of God

is transformed into
everything
we see.

And the Words of Love they sing
tell a never ending story
of the
Wonders of Creation.
Our Earthly Home
heralds God’s Glory,
in the Light and the Color

and the Beauty and the Wonder
of the World He made
for you and me.

And what was concealed
we no longer deny.
And in our knowing
the Artist Himself,
lifts our Spirits
to the sky.

As our eyes begin to open
and blindness meets the Light,
we
see a World
Bursting with Life
in vibrant, Living color.

            Breath taking is the Master’s Work.

And I’m walking out
of the night,
into such wonder
as Life marries
the Sparkling Light
,
and awakens
me
to the sounds
of Thunder,
hidden
in the Human Heart.

A New World is here,
a World
of Graceful Harmony,
a World
in which I now see
God in everything,
and every
Living Being,
and in me.

Breath taking
is the Master’s
Work.

Yes,
the entire Universe
has conspired to help
Life
find you.
Worlds are created

by Love.

            Worlds are created by Love.

So exquisite
is your work of Heart.
Fragile Beauty,

formed from delicate strokes
by the Master’s Hand.
And each Creation
bears testimony with each
Human Heart,
that God lives.

In the Master’s Hands,
we become Beautiful.
Life
goes into each Child
with so much Love.
Each Heart,
a work so delicate and unique

it fluently pours forth
Beauty
far beyond
what we can
behold.

God in everything and every Living Being.

From Timeless Biblical Truths
we see Birth and Life
and Love in each breath,
Beautiful Creations
by the Master’s Stroke of Art,
as mountains are shadowed
and the trees are formed,
and Love
grows by
giving.

The Dignity and Sanctity
of your Life
is
painted with so much Love,

the Love
of God
for His Child.

For YOU.

Goodnight.

May the peace which comes from
the memories of Love
shared,
comfort you now.

We never lose the ones we Love,
for Love lives on.

The Joy we knew
is never gone.
It lives on
in our precious
memories.

Mushrooms
may reduce the risk of mild brain decline
read more

Eating mushrooms more than twice a week
could prevent memory and language problems
occurring in the over-60s,
research from Singapore suggests.

A unique antioxidant present in mushrooms could have a protective effect on the brain, the study found.

The more mushrooms people ate, the better they performed in tests of thinking and processing.

But researchers said it was not possible to prove a direct link between the fungi and brain function.

The National University of Singapore study’s findings were based on 663 Chinese adults, aged over 60, whose diet and lifestyle were tracked from 2011 to 2017.

Over the six-year study, the researchers found that eating mushrooms lowered the chances of mild cognitive impairment, so that roughly nine out of 100 people who ate more than two portions a week were diagnosed, compared with 19 out of 100 among those who ate fewer than one portion.

‘Encouraging’

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) can make people forgetful, affect their memory and cause problems with language, attention and locating objects in spaces – but the changes can be subtle.

It is not serious enough to be defined as dementia.

The participants in the study were asked how often they ate six different types of mushrooms: oyster, shiitake, white button, dried, golden and tinned.

Mushroom eaters performed better in brain tests and were found to have faster processing speed – and this was particularly noticeable in those who ate more than two portions a week, or more than 300g (10.5oz).

“This correlation is surprising and encouraging,” said assistant professor Lei Feng, the lead study author, from the university’s department of psychological medicine.

“It seems that a commonly available single ingredient could have a dramatic effect on cognitive decline.

“But we are talking about a combination of many factors – tea, green leafy vegetables, nuts and fish are also beneficial.”

The researchers point to the fact that mushrooms are one of the richest dietary sources of ergothioneine – an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which humans are unable to make on their own.

Mushrooms also contain other important nutrients and minerals such as vitamin D, selenium and spermidine, which protect neurons from damage.

But there is still a long way to go before evidence of a direct link can be established.

Diet and lifestyle factors

This study relied on self-reported information on mushroom intake and other dietary factors, which may not be accurate, the researchers acknowledged.

Dr James Pickett, head of research at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “There are lots of factors that contribute to the development of dementia and it’s estimated that up to a third of cases could be prevented by changes in lifestyle, including diet.

Dementia is one of the top 10 causes of death, but people can take action to reduce their risk, so it’s important that we base our advice on consistent evidence that’s built up over multiple studies, and don’t get carried away with the findings of any one single study.

“So while eating a diet full of fruit and vegetables, including mushrooms, is a great starting point, our best advice is to also cut down on sugar and salt, be physically active, drink in moderation and avoid smoking.”

The study is published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
