How to Live in the Mystery of Life and Love It / Coping With The Fear / No School Until May 4

Dedicated
with all my Love
to the precious memory of
Eugene R. Retz.

I have a Family Heritage
I am very Proud of.
.
My Uncle,
Eugene R. Retz,
fought in the Battle of Bulge.
He was captured by German forces
and spent over a year
as a prisoner of war.
He truly suffered from the experience
his entire Life
from coming close to death
by starvation.

He was
as Kind and Loving
and Compassionate
a Man
as I have ever met.

His precious Life
epitomized
Courage
Dedication
and
Love.
.
“I recall when Gene was released from prisoner of war.
I believe it was close to Christmas time
and I was a young boy of about 8 years old.
I had just received an electric American Flyer train for Christmas.
On several occasions, Gene would come over to my home
and he and I would play (to my Joy) with the electric train.
At that time, I knew him only
as gentle and seemingly frail.”

“The great Beauty of Life
is its Mystery,

the inability to know
what course our Life will take,

and diligently work to transmute
into our final form,

based upon a Lifetime of constant discovery
and enterprising effort.
Accepting
the unknown and unknowable

eliminates regret.”
K. J. Oldster

My Dear Friends,
no matter how much we learn
about ourselves and our complexities
and that of other Beautiful Living Creations, 
scientists have not answered
the truly important question

What is Life?

There are times
when we feel as though 
we have lived many Lives,
been to the heights and depths
of Mountains and Valleys,
and never known rest,
never become aware
of the Gifts of so many years,
of the beating Hearts
of so many precious Lives.

My Friends,
we must Live by Faith
to possess all that is truly ours,
ALL
that God has gifted
to us.

“We live by Faith,
not by sight.”
2 Corinthians 5:7

God
controls the whole vastness
of the great Mysteries
of ALL things.

He Abides
with every beat of every Heart,
with every up-lifted cry
of our pleading voice,
with the crash of our fragile emotions,
and with the whirl of the wind
across the shifting sands
of Time.

“Why
do we resist the Mystery
that change brings?

When we get too rigid and inflexible,
rigor mortise of the Soul
sets in.”

Dennis Merritt Jones

      There is so much more to Life, than Living.

If
you find yourself exhausted
from the cares and worries
of this Life,
close your tired eyes,
sit motionless for a few moments

and breathe deeply.
Immerse yourself
in a conversation
with your Heavenly Father,
in Prayer.
Go outside of the artificial constructions
of Human Kind.
Go into the Beautiful Cathedral of God,
into His Natural World
of the Great and Vast
Garden of Living Treasures.

Become intensely aware
of all of the Beautiful Life around you,
the breathing leaves
of His Beautiful whispering Trees,
the singing and chattering of Joyful birds,
of the Vibrant Living Earth,
of the Moment
and the Mystery.

There is
so much more
to Life,
than Living.

Speak
to the Majesty
of this Moment
in the Language of the Heart.

Pray
and give Thanks
for the bountiful and Beautiful
Life
we cannot even define.

The power of awareness
  plows a deep furrow
into the Human Heart.

“To one who has Faith,
no explanation is necessary.
To one without Faith,
no explanation is possible.” 
Thomas Aquinas

As our tears purify the Heart
and give us understanding,
they unite
with Hearts joined
in ever searching
for Love.

                           Garden of Living Treasures

“Who can say when the roads meet
That Love might be in your Heart.
And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your Heart.

Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose
– Only time.
And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows,
only time.
Who knows?
Only time.”

Enya
.
Your smiles join you
to God’s Ecstasy.
And our tears unite us
with Hearts joined in misery.

Beyond this day
appears the Dawn of
Hope.

The Power
of God’s Everlasting Love
is sown deep
into the Human Heart.
It resides
in the valleys
of our fears.
For we are
His deeply Loved
Children.

“We,
by Nature,
don’t want to have to Trust a God
we cannot see or understand,
we are happiest when,
having Trusted Him,
we have found Him Trustworthy.
Doing so at the time
may have seemed imprudent,
but in retrospect
seems at once sage and courageous.”
Seth Barnes

The River of Life
will flow from this Day
into Tomorrow,
and turn our fears and our sorrow
into Joy and laughter.

Such is the Power

of Love.

This moment
is always given to us
to be a redefining moment,
when we may look more deeply
into the Mystery of Life
  and learn how to become
fully aware
of where we are
and what we are doing.
 
We stand before
an open door
in this and every moment
God grants to us.

Let us open every door
  and step into
a deeper awareness
of God’s Love
for us.

We truly are
Blessed.

We are Truly Loved
by God.
.
Let us share
His Love.

Goodnight.

Coping with the Fear

of COVID-19

by Diana Raab, MFA, Ph.D., author, speaker, educator, and survivor. She’s written nine books of nonfiction and poetry, including the recent Writing for Bliss and Writing for Bliss:  A Companion Journal.

The news has petrified us about the possibilities. Here’s how to cope.

Posted Mar 09, 2020 in Psychology Today

Confronting fear leads to a sense of accomplishment and a sense of empowerment, and allows us to feel a little more control over situations. The point of this blog post is not to provide a rationale for fear, but rather to suggest ways in which we can balance our fear by maintaining a sense of well-being during these types of challenging times. Try these self-care tips in the wake of fear:

 
  • Maintain a calm state of self-awareness and limit the amount of time you watch or listen to the news. It’s important to know what’s going on in the world, but you also need to know when to turn off the TV or stop reading the news and maintain a sense of balance. Tell yourself that being fearful might be causing some chaos in your life.
    .
  • Connect with others. Try to interact with positive-thinking individuals and those who have a good influence on you. These individuals can be friends or even a therapist. Listen to your heart and determine who resonates with your worldview. Studies have shown that loneliness can lead to the stress response, so try not to isolate yourself. With the most recent orders for “Safety in Place,” and lockdown, connecting via email, phone and letter writing is very important to minimize the chance of loneliness.
    .
  • Reduce stress. When stressed, cortisol production is increased. Cortisol helps fight inflammation in the body, but when it’s constantly secreted, then it’s less effective in fighting inflammation and disease. To reduce stress in your life, try maintaining a regular meditation practice, practicing yoga, and incorporating proper breathing techniques into your daily routine.
    .
  • Use humor, which is an excellent way to temper fear. It also helps keep things light and not so intense.
    .
  • Build your immunity. Those with strong immune systems minimize their chances of getting sick, so get proper exercise, eat well, and take the necessary supplements. Also, research has shown that those who get at least seven hours of sleep a night have more resistance to viruses, and thus have fewer side effects.
    .
  • Eat healthy foods. Try to avoid processed foods and sweeteners. Some foods that can contribute to your overall health include citrus fruits, red bell peppers, broccoli, garlic, ginger, spinach, almonds, yogurt, green tea, papaya, kiwi, poultry, sunflower seeds, and shellfish. Also, remember to stay hydrated and minimize alcohol consumption.
    .
  • Practice gratitude. When you’re feeling fearful, try replacing that emotion with an appreciation for all the good in your life. Even when under lockdown, it’s important to be grateful for having a roof over your head and some food in your refrigerator.
    .
  • Maintain a journaling practice. Journaling is a safe place where you can vent about your fears and frustrations. Sometimes writing can help you work through what’s bothering you. It can help you get out of the rabbit hole of negativity about how “awful” everything is. Gratitude journaling is also a powerful practice.
    .
  • Take up a hobby (or more than one). Think about what brings you peace of mind and also gives you pleasure, whether it’s golf, tennis, crafts, games, art, music, writing, or watching movies. Also, reading a good book can open your mind to new ideas and thought processes – especially inspirational memoirs and novels. There are many things you can do in the solitude of your home.
    .
  • Consider hypnosis. This can help eliminate negative thought patterns and beliefs. (It’s more successful for some than for others.)
    .
  • Practice good hygiene. Use hand sanitizers of proper hand washing techniques when in contact with anyone or anything outside your home. Hand washing is critical for disease prevention and spread, especially before eating and during food preparation. It’s important to wash for at least 20 seconds. Cover your mouth when coughing and sneezing, and if you do have to cough or sneeze, do so into the inside of your elbow. In general, viruses can live on surfaces for at least 24 hours, so viruses can be easily passed among family members. Make sure to frequently wipe down surfaces.

In summary,
accept the fact that this strain of coronavirus is part of our existence now and the numbers seem to be increasing by the minute. This virus is very contagious and it’s symptoms more serious than many in the past. While dealing with the difficulties of this time, It’s important to affirm the positive and remember what is good and powerful in our lives. Surrendering can bring about a sense of peace and calm; and in doing so, we’re empowering ourselves and not allowing fear to control us.

Like Rivers of Mercy Never Ceasing / Is Your Electric Blanket Safe? / Friday: At School for Shakespeare Production

Hanging
like a Lantern
in the Sky,
the Sun,
like the Light of Love,
does not deny
what is needed
to rise above the dark
of night,
and give us
sight.

My Dear Friends,
the Sun
never goes down.
It goes around and around.
The Light of the Sun
will
smile upon your Face,
again and again.

The Promise
made by the Sun,
is to shine a Light
upon
YOU.
.
And,
you need to promise,
to shine a Light
upon another Life.
There is always
someone
in need
of
YOU.

With Faith
in the unbroken Circle
that only Time reveals,
YOU
can be Liberated,
by your
Heart.

Each precious Day
you Live,
Life
longs to be
far, far from unknown,
and so very far
from just me.
It longs to be
you and me,
It LOVES to be
we.

Truth
streams down like Rivers of Mercy
never ceasing,

in Blessing the Human Heart,
as we read His Holy Word
and give Praise
to God,
and Worship in His Grace.
.

 By Flaming Words
from far above,
He speaks to the
Heart
of everyone,
in the Language
of Truth,
the Language
of Love.

The path
we follow
may wind through
the valleys
of many
Hearts set adrift.

Let us follow
where He leads.
He knows the meadows
and the mountains.
He knows
the where and the what
we need.

And our need
is simple,
like the Truths
from Above.
We need
Love.

To die
in the Arms of God,
is to be born
in the Warm Embrace
of Pure Love,
and Live
forever and ever.

Goodnight.

“Oh,
I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a Light of
Love.”

Is Your Electric Blanket Safe?
– Mercola.com

click here to read more

Story at-a-glance

  • Although using an electric blanket during the winter season is a good idea, it can actually emit dangerous electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
  • According to the BioInitiative Report, EMFs can affect gene expression, have genotoxic effects, induce stress response, affect immune function and neurology, impact your melatonin production, and promote certain types of cancers.
  • Electric blankets cause a magnetic field that can penetrate about six to seven inches into your body for hours at a time. Studies have linked electric blanket use to increased cases of miscarriages and childhood leukemia.
  • Instead of using an electric blanket, safer alternatives are using flannel sheets or extra blankets, wearing socks or hats, or using a hot water bottle.

By Dr. Mercola

Winter is upon you if you live in the northern hemisphere, and with this challenging economy you are probably interested in lowering your thermostat and conserving energy while still staying warm

An electric blanket seems like a good idea. You can turn the thermostat down at bedtime and stay comfortable throughout the night.

But the central question is: Are they safe?

It’s true — electric blankets are convenient and cost-effective. But it is important to know that they may also be hazardous to your health.

In addition to the fire danger associated with a defective or an old, worn electric blanket, there is also another health risk to consider — the electromagnetic field you’ll be sleeping under for several hours every night..

What Is an Electromagnetic Field?

An electromagnetic field (EMF) is an invisible zone of energy that surrounds electric devices and wiring. EMFs are actually comprised of two fields:

  • An electric field,
  • A magnetic field

The electric field is created by voltage, which determines the force with which the electricity is pushed through wires. Most electric fields can be shielded by the design of the appliance, or physically, by walls or other barriers.

The magnetic field is created by the current, which is the amount of electricity being pushed. Magnetic fields, which are the main cause of health concerns, can travel through most barriers and for long distances, and are difficult to block.

All electromagnetic energy falls somewhere on the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation to microwaves, x-rays, and gamma rays.

ELF fields are generated by household appliances, including electric blankets, and overhead power lines, which have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, such as leukemia.

The Dangers of Electromagnetic Energy to Your Health

When electricity passes through a wire, it creates an electromagnetic field that exerts force on nearby objects, including animals and humans.

At one time, it was believed that low-level magnetic fields were not harmful, but scientists now agree that ELF fields are indeed hazardous to human health. They are now considered “probable carcinogens,” and have been linked to cases of childhood leukemia, lymphoma, and other health conditions. The exact mechanism by which exposure leads to cancer has not been established. But one potential mechanism may be due to ELFs ability to alter the expression of certain genes; turning them on and off at inappropriate times, which may cause them to initiate cell proliferation.

Additionally, the BioInitiative Report, published by an international working group of scientists, researchers, and public health policy professionals, documents serious scientific concerns about the radiation emitted from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of exposure to radio frequencies and electromagnetic fields in daily life.

It concludes that the existing standards for public safety are completely inadequate to protect your health. The report includes studies showing evidence that electromagnetic fields can:

  • Affect gene and protein expression (Transcriptomic and Proteomic Research)
  • Have genotoxic effects – RFR and ELF DNA damage
  • Induce stress response (Stress Proteins)
  • Affect immune function
  • Affect neurology and behavior
  • Cause childhood cancers (Leukemia)
  • Impact melatonin production; Alzheimer’s disease; breast cancer
  • Promote breast cancer (Melatonin links in laboratory and cell studies)

Why Electric Blankets Are a Bigger Threat Than Other Household Appliances

Researchers have concluded that you should not only be aware of the potential harm of low-level magnetic fields, you should also limit your exposure as much as possible. This is especially true for appliances held close to the body, as would be the case with electric blankets.

The magnetic fields given off by various household appliances diminish sharply the farther you are from the appliance. In the case of electric blankets, however, a study conducted by Dr. Nancy Wertheimer in the mid-1980s demonstrated that the reading at any power level (level 1 all the way up to level 9 or 10) was 10 to 20 mG (milliGauss) next to the blanket, and 5 to 10 mG six inches away from it.

These numbers represent the field strength to which you’re exposed when sleeping under an electric blanket. The current is balanced at the center of the blanket, but unbalanced at the outer edges. It is the imbalance that causes a significant magnetic field to be generated.

While there is heated debate as to what EMF level is considered safe, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG, but many experts believe even this level is too high. As you can see, electric blankets are capable of creating a magnetic field anywhere from five to 20 times higher than the EPA’s proposed safe level of exposure. Meanwhile, many scientists warn that the enforced standards for electromagnetic exposures are too lax, and that the safety standards need to be revised in order to protect human health.

Specific Risks Linked to Electric Blanket EMFs

Electric blankets create a magnetic field that penetrates about six to seven inches into your body — for hours at a time. This qualifies as chronic exposure.

Epidemiological studies have linked electric blankets with miscarriages and childhood leukemia.

Data reported in the American Journal of Epidemiologyii  suggests that regular use of an electric blanket may increase breast cancer risk in some women, and according to a 2007 report published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, using electric blankets was associated with a 15 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer than never having used one. The same study also revealed that the use of electric blankets for 20 years or more was associated with 36 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer.

Other studies have shown that the EMFs generated by electric blankets suppress melatonin production. Melatonin is the most important detox agent for your brain and is also an anti-inflammatory. Electromagnetic radiation can make inflammation worse by creating more potent mycotoxins, so reducing inflammation is vital.

Research included in the BioInitiative Report mentioned above has also found links between melatonin disruption and the promotion of breast cancer.iii

Electric Blankets and Pregnancy

This clearly is not a good idea and something that is easily avoided. The unborn fetus is likely the most susceptible to this type of EMF radiation.

Additionally, if you use an electric blanket during early pregnancy, you may increase the risk of miscarriage.

Studies indicate that women who used an electric blanket around the time of conception and during early pregnancy were nearly twice as likely to have a miscarriage than women who did not.

Is There a ‘Risk Free’ Electric Blanket?

In response to EMF concerns, U.S. electric blanket manufacturers now sell blankets that claim to generate no harmful electromagnetic radiation.

Although these “zero magnetic field” blankets reduce or eliminate magnetic fields, they may still generate electric fields.

In my opinion, even minimal exposure poses an unnecessary risk, especially for children, pregnant women, people who are chronically exposed to EMFs from other sources, and those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS).

Safe Alternatives to Your Electric Blanket

    • Flannel sheets
    • An extra blanket
    • Wear socks, or even a hat, to bed
    • A hot water bottle

If you insist on using an electric blanket, turn it on before bedtime and leave the room while it warms your bed. Before you retire for the night, turn off the blanket and unplug it in order to eliminate EMF exposure.

 In Philosophy Class this week:

Royal Raymond Rife

Royal Raymond Rife, born in 1888, was one of the greatest scientific geniuses of the 20th century. He began researching a cure for cancer in 1920, and by 1932 he had isolated the cancer virus. He learned how to destroy it in laboratory cultures and went on to cure cancer in animals. In 1934, he opened a clinic which successfully cured 16 of 16 cases within three months time. Working with some of the most respected researchers in America along with leading doctors from Southern California, he electronically destroyed the cancer virus in patients, allowing their own immune systems to restore health.

In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a special medical research committee to bring terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital to Rife’s San Diego Laboratory and clinic for treatment. The team included doctors and pathologists assigned to examine the patients – if still alive – in 90 days.

After the 90 days of treatment, the committee concluded that 86.5% of the patients had been completely cured. The treatment was then adjusted and the remaining 13.5% of the patients also responded within the next four weeks. The total recovery rate using Rife’s technology was 100%.

Suppression and Ridicule

But by 1939, almost all of these distinguished doctors and scientists were denying that they had ever met Rife. What happened to make so many brilliant men have complete memory lapses? It seems that news of Rife’s miracles with terminal patients had reached other ears. Remember our hypothetical question at the beginning of this report: What would happen if you discovered a potential cure for everything?

Cancer picks us off quietly. By 1960 the casualties from this tiny virus exceeded the carnage of all the wars America ever fought. In 1989, it was estimated that 40% of us will experience cancer at some time in our lives. In Rife’s lifetime, he had witnessed the progress of civilization from horse-and-buggy travel to jet planes. In that same time, he saw the epidemic of cancer increase from 1 in 24 Americans in 1905 to 1 in 3 in 1971 when he died.

One day, the name of Royal Raymond Rife may ascend to its rightful place as a giant of modern medical science. Until that time, his fabulous technology remains available only to the people who have the interest to seek it out. While perfectly legal for veterinarians to use to save the lives of animals, Rife’s brilliant frequency therapy remains taboo to orthodox mainstream medicine because of the continuing threat it poses to the international pharmaceutical medical monopoly that controls the lives – and deaths – of the vast majority of the people on this planet.

There Is Far, Far More To Life Than Living / Lotman Consultation Services / Friday: Half Price Books and SeaQuest Aquarium

Life
has never been truly
understood.
.
Understanding
the Beautiful Phenomenon
that is Life and Living,
means
that we must Blossom
in the Beautiful Morning of our Sun,
Flower
in the fragrant wind,
immerse ourselves in the Joy
of simply Being,
and flow with ease
in the ebb and tide
of the emotions
we stride.

There is far, far more
to Life,
than Living.

Before our Dawn,
was found
forever.

And then
God
touched your Heart,
and promised to Love you
forever and ever.

My Dear Friends,
Life
in itself,
is a Masterpiece.
It is
a musical score,
a Song of Being
that captures the Heart
of the full meaning
of Love.

It is
the Beautiful foliage
of the magnificent Trees,
perfected for tranquil
and pensively performed Music
of the Beautiful Birds,
singing the songs
that take your Heart away
to other Beautiful places,
where we all can Live
captured by Time.

It makes one reflect
upon so many things,
the things and people we see
and one day never shall see again.
It leads us to the fact
that each day,
however ordinary it may seem,
is Beautiful
in its’ own way.

And,
if we gaze at Life
through a fog of Love,
we may envision what Heaven
feels like and sounds like.
.
In each precious Moment
that we feel the presence of Love,
Beauty
becomes so intense,
that Life becomes relevant
and meaningful.
And we are Blessed
by a Noble interpretation
of the Masterpiece
we call
You and Me.

.
As 1 Timothy 1:17 says,
“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, INVISIBLE,
the only wise God,
be Honor and glory for ever and ever.”
.

Consciousness
is something that no one
can see,
or seem to
truly define.

God has created all things
those that can be seen
and those that cannot be seen.

Colossians 1:16 says:
“For by Him were all things created,
that are in Heaven,
and that are in Earth,
VISIBLE and INVISIBLE,
whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by Him,
and for Him.”

My Friends,
all we know for sure
are sensations and thoughts.

We know that we have thoughts,
though few of us know
how our thoughts arise
or how we become
cognizant of them.

Thoughts
arise logically, or illogically,
from memory.
Our thoughts and memories,
of the past
or in the making,
are the same,
in essence.

What becomes self evident
is that our feelings
make us FEEL
ALIVE.
.
And this perception
is very intimate.

It is at the very core
of our BEING.
It is
at the center
of our HEART.

If
we trust our intuition,
this
is the most fundamental
REALITY.

We see a blue sky
during the day,
and the sensation is
unmistakable.

And yet we know,
beyond any shadow of a doubt,
that the blue sky
is non existent!

The entire Cosmos
is a set of
sensations.
We do not know,
and we cannot possibly know,
the cosmos that is out there
as an independent reality.
But we do know
the sensation of it.

We feel sure of
our own ALIVENESS,
because we find it
sensational.

“Feeling the reality of the state sought
and living and acting on that conviction
is the way of all seeming miracles.
All changes of expression
are brought about through a change of feeling.
A change of feeling
is a change of destiny.”
– ​
Neville Goddard

We exist,
but we can never really know any reality
other than our feeling of
EXISTENCE,
and hence our feeling
is the fundamental
REALITY.

Goodnight.

According to the World Health Organization,
drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death
in the world,
with 372,000 drowning deaths reported
annually.

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

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

Swimming Pool Drowning Deaths and Kids

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

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

Today is Tomorrow in Yesterday’s Dream / Power Lines, Electrical Devices and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation / Friday: At School – Shakespeare Play Production

Today
is Tomorrow,
in Yesterday’s Dream.

And the Season
of the Heart,
is always
Spring.

Let every precious breath
you take,
be
the very first breath
of Spring.

Yes,
the Time has come.
Wake up
and come alive.

If
you have missed
so many things
to do,
things you have
never done,
always remember that
Time
is in a swirl,
and it will quickly
take from you
what you need,
if you delay.

Our words
can betray much
to each other.
But more dearly
than the spoken word
can tell,
is the Love
in your eyes,
that speaks
more clearly
than words
will ever tell.

My Dear Friends,
to enjoy the pleasures
of this Life,
they must be
simple.

“Life is really simple,
but we insist on making it
complicated.”
Confucius

Simplicity
opens the door
to Beauty
and beyond.

If we only knew how often
simplicity and complexity
are entwined within every second
of our existence,
we would scarcely be able to breathe.
Such is the Beauty of
simplicity.

Within the simplicity
of Joy,
and the manifestation of Love,
is the underlying substance
of all that is
or ever was.

Simplicity
is the door to experiences of sublime importance.
Without simplicity,
they would be beyond our capacity
to understand or comprehend.
Simplicity is the key
to opening the windows
of Heaven
on Earth.

But complexity,
My Dear Friend,
brings chaos
into range.

“Simplicity is
the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Lingering Sunsets
are God’s invitation,
to walk slowly
past the Beautiful Gifts
He
has provided all around:
Flowers that abound,
the Grass
so green
it lends new meaning
to colors that
may be found,
with Trees
like Cathedrals
pointed toward the Sky,
where you and I
may place our
Hearts,
and our bountiful
Dreams.

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old,
you don’t understand it yourself.”  
Albert Einstein

Rainbows
in His Sacred Sky
are there
for you and I
to see a debt
has long been paid.
God’s Promise
was made,
and His Beautiful Language
will linger long
for us to see
beyond
His Love
for you
and me.

It is now the time
to dance with the rhythm
of the falling rain,
and join yourself
with all the Beauty of the Natural World
and receive its
bountiful Blessings
and Gifts.

The curvature
of our cravings
for more and more,
is not
curve-linear,
not round or smooth
or elliptical.
It is
jagged,
defined by violence
and war.

But,
we can do better,
we can do
more.

As the collective Human mind
releases
its desires and cravings,
it releases the hold
it has on you.

“People from the same ethnic group
who live closely
are more likely to instigate and organize each other
to fight rival ethnic groups,
whereas ethnic groups more dispersed within a country
are less likely to lead to intrastate conflict
due to a lack of coordination.”

Geography of Conflict

We
do not war
with
each other.
We war
in prescribed ways –
one geographical accident
of birth,
opposed to another
in geography
that is simply
birthed
in a different location.

“War is an inherently geographical concept:
it is fought across territories,
by territorially-bounded states,
and its outcomes influence the remapping
of that system of states.
Wars create geographies
and geographies create wars.
Colin Flint

My Friends,
bullets
that take the Life
of another,
never
hit the ground.
.
They also
take the precious Lives
of many, many others,
unnamed and unknown.
They kill the Children,
the sons and daughters
of us all,
never to be born.
They destroy
all Hope
for Children of Children of Children –
and on and on and on,
a number reaching into Infinity,
and far, far beyond.

“Whoever saves a single Life
is as if one saves
the entire World.”
Talmud

The cost of war
can never be
measured.
It cannot be
found,
even in the imagination,
or the perplexities
of mathematics
unknown and profound.

The true cost
is an Infinity
of
Infinities.

No
such number
will ever be
found.

“Thou shalt not kill.”
Exodus 20:13

Everyone,
as a Child,

has a beautiful Heart.

Every Day
is a wonderful Gift
and a Blessed day.

Happiness
may come into your Life
today.
And a small happiness
can lead to great Joy
throughout your
Life.

There is Infinite Love
and Hope and Light
in you.

Let the pathway
for others
be
through your Sacred
Heart.
Take someone
by the hand
and help them,
and they
will show you
the way.

Through the Heart
of another
lies
a truly Joyful
day.

Goodnight.

Power Lines, Electrical Devices
and Extremely Low Frequency Radiation

What is extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation?

Radiation is the emission or sending out of energy from any source. X-rays are an example of radiation, but so is the light that comes from the sun and the heat that is constantly coming off our bodies.

When talking about radiation and cancer, many people think of specific kinds of radiation such as x-rays or the radiation in nuclear reactors. But these are not the only types of radiation that concern us when we think about radiation risks to human health.

Radiation exists across a spectrum from very high-energy (also referred to as high-frequency) radiation to very low-energy (or low-frequency) radiation. This is sometimes referred to as the electromagnetic spectrum.

Examples of high-energy radiation include x-rays and gamma rays. They, as well as some higher energy ultraviolet (UV) rays, are classified as ionizing radiation, which means that they have enough energy to remove an electron from (ionize) an atom. Ionizing radiation can damage the DNA inside cells, which can lead to mutations and the uncontrolled cell growth we know as cancer.

Extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation is at the low-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum and is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation has enough energy to move atoms around or make them vibrate, but not enough to directly damage DNA. ELF radiation has even lower energy than other types of non-ionizing radiation like radiofrequency radiation, visible light, and infrared.

With most types of radiation, the electric and magnetic fields are coupled. Because they act as one, they are considered together as an electromagnetic field (EMF). But with ELF radiation, the magnetic field and the electrical field can exist and act independently, so they are often studied separately. Typically, we use the term “magnetic field” to indicate ELF radiation from a magnetic field, while we use “electric field” to mean ELF radiation from an electric field.

The possible link between electromagnetic fields and cancer has been a subject of controversy for several decades. It’s not clear exactly how electromagnetic fields, a form of low-energy, non-ionizing radiation, can increase cancer risk. Plus, because we are all exposed to different amounts of these fields at different times, the issue has been hard to study.

Electric and magnetic fields

All radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum is produced by the interactions of 2 forces, referred to as fields. Radiation has both an electric field and a magnetic field.

Electric fields are the forces acting on charged particles (parts of atoms), like electrons or protons, which cause them to move. Electric current is simply the flow of electrons produced by an electric field. The strength of an electric field is often expressed as volts per meter (V/m) or, for stronger fields, as kilovolts per meter (kV/m), where a kilovolt is 1000 volts.

magnetic field is created when charged particles are in motion. The strength of a magnetic field can be expressed in many different units, including tesla (T), microtesla (µT or one millionth of a tesla), and gauss (G), where one G equals 100 µT.

How are people exposed to ELF radiation?

Generating, transmitting, distributing, and using electricity all expose people to ELF radiation. Power lines, household wiring, and any device that uses electricity can generate ELF radiation. Thus any electric device, from refrigerators and vacuum cleaners to televisions and computer monitors (when they are on) are sources of ELF radiation. Even electric blankets expose people to ELF radiation.

How much electromagnetic radiation you are exposed to depends on the strength of the electromagnetic field, your distance from the source of the field, and the length of time you are exposed. The highest exposure occurs when the person is very close to a source putting out a strong field and stays there for a long period.

Does ELF radiation cause cancer?

Researchers use 2 main types of studies to try to figure out if something causes cancer.

  • Lab studies: In lab studies, animals are exposed to different levels of the substance (sometimes at extremely high levels) to see if this exposure causes tumors or other health problems. Researchers might also expose normal human cells in a lab dish to see if this causes the types of changes that are seen in cancer cells. It’s not always clear that the results from these types of studies directly apply to humans, but lab studies are a good way to find out if an exposure might possibly cause cancer.
  • Studies in people: Other types of studies look at cancer rates in different groups of people. Such a study might compare the cancer rate in an exposed group to the rate in a group with lower exposures, or to a group not exposed at all. Sometimes the exposed group’s cancer rate is compared to the cancer rate in the general population. But it can be hard to know what the results of these studies mean, because many other factors might affect the results. For example, people are typically exposed to many substances other than the one being studied, and these other exposures could affect the results.

In most cases neither type of study provides conclusive evidence on its own, so researchers usually look at both lab-based and human studies when trying to figure out if something can cause cancer.

Studies in the lab

Several large studies have looked at the possible effects of ELF magnetic fields on cancer in rats and mice. These studies expose the animals to magnetic fields much stronger than what people are normally exposed to at home, with fields ranging from 2 to 5000 microtesla (µT). Most of these studies have found no increase in the risk of any type of cancer. In fact, the risk of some types of cancer was actually lower in the animals exposed to the ELF radiation. One study did show an increased risk of tumors that start in thyroid cells, called C-cells, in male rats at some exposures. This increased risk was not seen in female rats or in mice, and was not seen at the highest field strength. These inconsistencies, and the fact that these findings were not consistently seen in the other studies, make it hard for scientists to conclude that the observed increased risk of tumors is from the ELF radiation.

Other studies in mice and rats have looked specifically for increases in leukemia and lymphoma as a result of exposure to ELF radiation, but these studies have also not found a link.

Studies in people

Studying the effects of ELF radiation in people can be hard, for many reasons:

Exposure to ELF radiation is very common, so it’s not possible to compare people who are exposed with people who aren’t exposed. Instead, studies try to compare people exposed at higher levels with people exposed at lower levels.

It is very hard to determine how much ELF radiation a person has been exposed to, especially over a long period. As far as we know, the effects of ELF radiation do not add up over time, and there is no test that can measure how much exposure a person has had.

Researchers can get a snapshot of ELF exposures by having a person wear a device that records their exposure levels over hours or days. Or, researchers can measure the magnetic or electrical field strength in a person’s home or workplace settings.

Other options include estimating exposure based on the wiring configuration of someone’s workplace/home or on its distance from power lines. But these methods result in exposure estimates that have a lot of uncertainty and that can produce biased estimates of total exposure. They typically do not account for a person’s ELF exposures while in other places, they don’t measure ELF exposures in every location that person has ever lived or worked over their lifetime. As a result, there are no good ways to accurately estimate someone’s long-term exposure, which is what matters most when looking for possible effects on cancer risk.

In children

  • A number of studies have looked at a possible link between ELF radiation from magnetic fields in the home and childhood leukemia, with mixed results. Still, when the findings from these studies are combined, a small increase in risk is seen for children at the highest exposure levels compared to those with the lowest exposure levels. Studies looking at the effect of ELF electric fields on childhood leukemia have not found a link.

Studies have generally not found any strong links between ELF electric or magnetic fields and other types of childhood cancers.

In adults

Although several studies have looked at possible links between ELF exposures in adults and cancer, most have not found a link.

What expert agencies say

Several national and international agencies study different exposures in the environment to determine if they can cause cancer. (Something that causes cancer or helps cancer grow is called a carcinogen.) The American Cancer Society looks to these organizations to evaluate the risks based on evidence from laboratory, animal, and human research studies.

Based on animal and human evidence like the examples above, some expert agencies have evaluated the cancer-causing nature of ELF radiation.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO). One of its major goals is to identify causes of cancer. In 2002, IARC considered the evidence for ELF magnetic and electric fields separately:

  • It found “limited evidence” in humans for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields in relation to childhood leukemia, with “inadequate evidence” in relation to all other cancers. It found “inadequate evidence” for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields based on studies in lab animals.
  • It found “inadequate evidence” for the carcinogenicity of ELF electric fields in humans.

Based on this assessment, IARC has classified ELF magnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” It has classified  ELF electric fields as “not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans.”

In 1999, the US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) described the scientific evidence suggesting that ELF exposure poses a health risk as “weak,” but noted that it cannot be recognized as entirely safe, and considered it to be a “possible” human carcinogen.

How can I avoid exposure to ELF radiation?

It’s not clear that exposure to ELF radiation is harmful, but there are things you can do to lower your exposure if you are concerned. Your exposure is based on the strength of the ELF radiation coming from each source, how close you are to each, and how long you spend in the field.

The NIEHS recommends that people concerned about their exposure to EMF (and ELF radiation) find out where their major EMF sources are and move away from them or limit the time spent near them. For example, moving even an arm’s length away from a source can dramatically lower exposure to its field.

Power lines

People who are concerned about ELF radiation exposure from high-power electrical lines should keep in mind that the intensity of any exposure goes down significantly as you get farther away from the source. On the ground, the strength of the electromagnetic field is highest directly under the power line. As you get farther away, you are exposed to less and less, with the level eventually matching normal home background levels. The electromagnetic field directly under a power line is typically in the range of what you could be exposed to when using certain household appliances.

If you are concerned about your exposure to electromagnetic sources around you (including power lines), you can measure the field strength with a device called a gaussmeter.

What Exactly Is Alcohol?

Most people simply do not know
and our children really have noidea.

My friends, this is information that we need to protect our very precious children from a horrible existence and early death. The life of an alcoholic is all too typically a very lonely, deeply depressing, utterly miserable, poverty stricken struggle for mere existence and with little or no hope for the future and NO Joy in Life.

My prayer for you is to share this information with your children.

About 2 billion (with a BIG B) people across the World consume alcoholic drinks. Hey, there are only 7 billion of us on this Earth. Alcohol is the most widely used drug in the United States. Unlike most other drugs, alcohol carries the potential to damage many organs of the body; including the Heart, brain, liver, and digestive system. It also BREAKS the Heart when you lower your Loved One into an early grave.
.
Yes,
AND when you think about it,
alcohol damages other organs outside of your body,
in the bodies of others who Love you,
in an organ called their Heart.
Come on!
.
WAKE UP!

The use of alcohol results in the death
of OVER two and one half million people
each year
and causes serious illness and injury to many millions more.
Most deaths caused by alcohol results from
injuries, CANCER, cardiovascular diseases and liver cirrhosis.

Alcohol is also associated with infectious diseases like AIDS, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted disease. This is because alcohol consumption weakens the immune system, reduces inhibitions, and distorts judgment.
.
REALLY?

Of 19 major health concerns, alcohol is ranked #3, and is greater than unsafe water, high blood pressure, tobacco, obesity and illicit drugs (ranked #18). Source: Global Health Risks.

“Too much drinking increases your chances of being injured or even killed. Alcohol is a factor, for example, in about 60 percent of fatal burn injuries, drownings and homicides; 50 percent of severe trauma injuries and sexual assaults; and 40 percent of fatal motor vehicle crashes, suicides and fatal falls.”
Rosalind Breslow, epidemiologist at the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome,
is the third leading cause of birth defects

with accompanying mental retardation.
These poor children
didn’t even get to take a drink.
But MOM did,
without thinking about them.
And NOW . . . . . . .
they can live their lives
without
ANY real potential
of truly being alive.
(THANKS Mom!
Uh, I may think that is Mom,
but
I am not REALLY capable
of thinking like I should.
She took the bat
out of my hands,
and told me
to play ball,
you know,
in the game
of Life!)

Yes,
the TRUTH hurts.
But,
it the ONLY thing
that sets us
FREE.
.

And
alcohol is involved in half
of all fatal automobile accidents.

We cannot even imagine the loss of potential.

Research has shown that prolonged periods of drinking produces specific brain damage which causes blackouts, disorientation, and loss of memory.
Studies suggest a connection between alcohol
and stressors contributing to Heart disease.

The World Health Organization released
The Global Strategy to Reduce the Harmful Use of Alcohol,
endorsed by Member States.
Click here for more
It promotes proven effective measures
for reducing alcohol-related harm including:
.

taxation on alcohol;
• reducing availability through allowing fewer outlets to sell alcohol,
raising age limits for those buying
(I personally recommend the age limit of 101. By that time, you probably will not be able to hold the bottle and your body will be prone to react normally and you will throw up and throw the bottle at the idiot that gave it to you. With any luck you will hit that person and knock some sense into him or her.)
• regulating or banning marketing of alcoholic beverages and
• conducting information and educational campaigns.

A large new report warns that the harms of alcohol greatly outweigh any potential beneficial effects. The authors of the study, which looks at data on 28 million people worldwide, determined that considering the risks, there is no safe level of alcohol.”

Alcohol is associated with 2.8 million deathsworldwide each year, the researchers found in the study, which is published in the journal The Lancet. Over 2 percent of women and nearly 7 percent of men worldwide die from alcohol-related health problems each year.

Regular alcohol consumption can have negative impacts on the body’s organs and tissues, while binge drinking can lead to injuries or alcohol poisoning. Alcohol dependence can lead to self-harm or violence.

Let’s Get Personal, because It Is!

Jason Jackson

Over the years, Mrs. Anderson and I have lost many precious friends and neighbors to the excrement Alcohol. Our deeply Loved friend and former parent and teacher, Jason Jackson, fought on an UN-level field of battle against this powerful drug and its accomplices – ignorance, apathy and prejudice. Because of our misguided tolerance, the ready availability of alcohol contributes directly to millions of people falling victim to its overwhelming seduction and power.

Jason knew this deadly excreted chemical was more powerful than he was. We discussed this on many occasions. And as he reached out for help, I found his Spirit to be courageous. In my opinion, as a society and as members of the Family of Man, we failed our brother Jason and millions more, in not helping to provide a landscape at least partially free from such palpable and blatant temptation. There are advertisements for this CRAP (yes, it is) everywhere.

Countless times he reminded me of numerous places all along our streets and highways to purchase alcohol and advertise this liquid refuse. He told me privately that every time he passed a place where it was advertised and easily available, the indescribable and horrible compulsion of need overwhelmed him. He asked me why? Why is this product available on every street corner and in-between? Many times he asked me how he could stay away from something he was reminded of every few minutes as he traveled along on our streets and highways and even in grocery stores and gas stations.

That, my friends, is a very good question. The ready availability of this toxic, debilitating and deadly excrement is responsible for the death of this fine young man – and millions more. As citizens, we hold the powerto limit the sale, advertisement and distribution within our communities. Why are we not actively seeking to help our children, our neighbors and ourselves, in fighting to limit the sale and reduce temptation and exposure to this harmful excrement?

We truly enjoyed dining at Greenwood's Restaurant

The Truth is sad. “We, the people” allow lobbyists from the liquor industry to influence those we place in a position of Sacred Trust, those we elect to public office. We, through our blindfaith in those we elect, permit the influence of money to overwhelm our capacity for compassion and our common sense. And why do we keep electing these people?     Do you think any of our elected representatives will attend the funeral of any one of the victims of alcohol abuse? We, the People, are effectively causing the MURDER of millions of beautiful people.
.

WHY?

How
do you $pell
MONEY?

By not acting and voting in a responsible manner, we contribute to the illusion that there is no problem, while we bury our Beloved Children out of sight and in early graves, as we continue to drive by the cause of their suffering and demise.How blind are we? How insensitive have we become? How much sorrow can we endure? My, how the tears have flowed. The tears could fill an OCEAN so large and so deep that this uncaring Nation could be swallowed by it.
And it has been.

Henry David Thoreau said that most men live lives of quiet desperation. Jason lived such a life. He told me he did not own a television because he simply drank all evening until he passed out. And there are countless millionsthat live as such. Perhaps you passed by one of these precious, unloved, forgotten and uncared for people today, living under a bridge or begging on the corner of the street.

They are all over the place.
Aren’t they?
And,
do we reallycare?

    With little or no hope for the future.

I ask you today to please remember Jason,
and the many, many others who have struggled against
impossible odds
to free themselves from dangerous drugs such as the bacterial excrement, alcohol.
.
I beg of you
to please Resolve with me
that Jason and all the other countless victims
shall not have died in vain.
That through you,
our other sons and daughters
shall have a new
birth of freedom
– the freedom to live the Life that Jason
could only dream of, on so many nights,
as he wept and Prayed for help.

When you drink alcohol, it is not casual.
It is not harmless.
It is serious,
especially if you consume this drug
in the presence of children
,
and by doing so, give its consumption your stamp of approval.
The reality of drinking gains a new dimension of acceptability,
without the true and hidden recognition of its seductive and highly destructive power.
The casual apathy associated with its acceptance
as a simple beverage,
forms a strong and usually unbreakable bond
of relational tolerance
that simply should not exist.

Any drug powerful enough to change the Constitution of the United States – TWICE – and destructive enough to cause tens of thousands of deaths on America’s highways and destroy millions of families and lives in associated heath disorders, is
too powerful to play with.
.
NO.
There is no such thing
as a safe level of alcohol consumption.

The idea that drinking small amounts of alcohol
will do you no harm is a
myth.

If you need a distraction, a beautiful release from the pain that you feel in Life, find someone like Jason and spend time with them. Offer some comfort from the overwhelming burdens they carry on their long, painful and lonely road of life. As the beautiful Folk Music of my time echoes back – “It’s a long, long journey, so stay by my side”.The only things that you truly possess are those things you give to others, for they live on in the Heart. And the most valuable thing you can give to anyone, especially those in such need, is your time. Let someone know you Love them and find some peace tonight. And please remember:

“SPENDING TIME WITH CHILDREN
IS MORE IMPORTANT
THAN SPENDING MONEY ON CHILDREN.”
Anthony D. Williams, from: Inside the Divine Pattern

I know that few, if any, will long remember what I try to convey.
It is such a tragic realization. But please allow me to wish you strength. And I pray we will all have courage.
But more than this, know that
I wish you Love.

May the courage of your convictions, in some way, honor the precious memory of our beloved friend Jason. As I shared with him, when last we met, my Prayer is for you to search for the strength to always share the bountiful Love that lives in your Heart, for in the end, that is truly
all
we will have left.

And privately, I have truly wondered if the volume of tears shed by all the countless millions affected by the losses we have suffered is not greater than the volume of alcohol consumed by its victims.
How many Oceans
of Tears?

So, What Is Alcohol?

It was bad enough when Scientific American broke the news that there are ten bacteria cells in or on the human body for each human cell. That we are out-numbered 10 to 1 in our own bodies. That there are hundreds of times more bacteria genes as Human genes living in and on us.      We are made mostly of bacteria.

 

Yeast poop.
When you get right down to it, the pseudo happy juice that makes you pass out and makes you fat and irritable, and dying or dead,
is yeast poop.

Yeast eat sugar and drops big, steaming loads of booze wherever they go. And they pass gas a lot too. You may as well stick a straw in the septic tank. The effect will be the same!                           Click here for more.

 

It is true that alcohol is the name given to the excrement that bacteria excrete, after feeding on fruit/vegetation during so called fermentation (a fancy word for excrementation) ?

Alcohol is a toxin, and is toxic to the human body in

even moderate amounts. While we may have a few drinks and not feel anything, our body certainly takes notice of the alcohol.

The story of how alcohol came to be, … asserts gleefully that fungi in grape juice “gorge” themselves and leave their liquid excrement. That is what alcohol is.

Yeast: It Eats Sugars And Poops Alcohol. What’s Not To Like?

Yes, we have discovered that alcohol is essentially the toilet water of a fungus. Alcohol is yeast excrement. …………………………YUK!

Beer, as all alcoholic drinks, is made by fermentation caused by bacteria feeding on the yeast cells, then defecating. This bacterial excrement is called alcohol.

The term ‘toddlers’ originated in England. There were impurities in the drinking water that disallowed the water to be used for drinking. A common alternative drink was beer (it was cheep, plentiful and the water used to make it was treated during the initial boiling during brewing). Toddlers, just weaning off of mothers milk were unaccustomed to the effects of beer. This coupled with the fact that they were just learning how to walk really made them toddle.

It was the accepted practice in Babylonia 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride’s father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the “honey month” or what we know today as the “honeymoon”.

 

Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. “Wet your whistle”, is the phrase inspired by this practice.

Alcohol is made from the excrement of a living yeast organism. When the yeast is fed carbs in the form of grapes, hops, potatoes, corn etc., it digests it and excretes toxic alcohol.

My Dear Friend,
Reach out,
and with a Heart blistered still,
from working far too hard
with words
shaped into a shield
to protect others
like you and me.
Even with looks surreal,
doubting,
adrift,
and drowning
in the vast Sea
of never fully knowing,
that the Love of God
flows
like a Raging River
through you
and through me.

But,
let
the Love
be.

Goodnight.

Nobody works harder
for their customers and for our Community!
I cannot recommend anyone more highly
than this hard working, beautiful family.
I am truly proud to call them my friends and neighbors.
And so will you!

We are ALL perfectly Imperfect / 7 Reasons To Live Frugally / Friday: Rollerland West

The Harmonics of the Heart
may be heard,
when Love is given
with nothing
expected in return.
The Song it sings
is the fragrance of our Being,
uplifting, ascending,
transcending everything.

It harmonizes who we are
with every living Being.
Gliding past the pain in Life,
as we dance around our star,
in praise of Love
and Sing.

For no greater Joy
will ever be,
if Love we Harmonize.
Like shooting Stars
that Light the way,
our Love will live
beyond our Being.

“Have no fear of perfection
– you’ll never reach it.”

– Salvador Dali

To strive for perfection
is to never be satisfied,
never happy.

Trying to always be perfect
is pursuing the worst in us,
that part that tells us
NOTHING
is ever good enough.

My Dear Friends,
one of the best antidotes
to the unnatural inclination toward perfection
is simple:
Stop thinking
about it
and give your life, your labor and your Love
to others.
Recognize that Love
is the condition in which the Happiness
of another person
is essential
to your own.

Perfectionism
is a form of poisoning.
The expectation of perfection
can poison the precious and very fragile
Spirit of a Child.
It can lead to death,
and has millions of times.

We are ALL
perfectly imperfect.
In our differences
our Vision lives.
When our imperfections emerge,
we become our authentic selves,
and we find ourselves
to be,
what we are meant to be.
And,
we can be
accepting,
and
happy.

According to the American College Health Association
the suicide rate among young adults, ages 15-24,
has tripled since the 1950s.

College suicides have also tripled
since the 1950s,
and suicide is
the second most common cause of death
among college students.
1 in 12 college students
has made a suicide plan at some point.
For more read:
youngadults.about.com

It is unbelievable,
but tragically true.
And suicide, typically, does not discriminate
based on age, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
But in this country it does discriminate.
Suicide rates are inordinately high
for our young,
vulnerable and emotional distressed and stressed out
children.
For middle and high school age youth (ages 12-18),
suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death.

In ages 10-14, we have seen
an alarming 128% increase in suicides since 1980,
making it the third leading cause of death
for that age group according to the Jason Foundation.

More teenagers and young adults die from suicide
than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease,
COMBINED.

Each day in our nation,
there are an average of over 5,400 attempts
by young people
grades 7-12.
My dear friends,
these are NOT just numbers,
they are our
precious children.

In most countries,
the incidence of suicides is higher than the incidence
of intentional homicides.
More people die of suicide
than die of war and murder.

 As of July 27, 2018,
there have been 2,372 U.S. military deaths in the War in Afghanistan,
lost since the U.S. entered that conflict in 2003.
But most people are unaware
that a much greater loss of young lives
occurs every year
on this nation’s college campuses.

Yes,
we are effectively at war, in our own country,
with what causes the death of many more young Americans.
And the sooner we realize that it is a war,
and one that we are losing,
the sooner we will find Hope for the many thousands
who desperately need Hope.
They are the children of our deepest Love.
They are the sons and daughters
of us all.
They are my children.
And they are your children.

Folks, we need to admit our mistakes.
We need to take responsibility.
We need to Love each other enough
to see the light of our neglectful transgressions.
We need to stop pretending
that we are doing what is right.
.

We have failed so many of our deeply Loved children,
by not having the courage to say no.
Say NO to outdated and oppressive teaching methodologies.
Say NO to antiquated and overly stressful and unnecessary
assessment strategies
that place so much stress on children
that they simply stop breathing.
.

Say No
to anyone who expects our children to be perfect.
Shout No!
And then, by God,
go out into this World
and do something about it.

My Dear Friends,
there is simply too much stress
placed upon our young, sensitive, vulnerable children.
And what have you gained,
if your Honor-roll Child no longer exists?
The only thing to be gained from such tragic loss
is knowledge
– truly sad knowing,
and deep, everlasting
regret.

We now have the Wisdom,
garnered from an unimaginable price paid by so very many children,
to know that a precious child means far more to us
than a crippled letter of the alphabet
printed upon a piece of really dumb looking paper.

LeVonna and I have come to the realization
that such artificial contrivances as report cards and grades,
are highly superficial and deplorably subjective.
Our government
(that’s us, Folks, you know – WE the people!)
is responsible for adding even more unnecessary stress
through mandated testing.
And, importantly,
these man-made artificial contrivances
become highly destructive of fragile self-esteem
and of Life itself.

“High self-esteem
and social “connectedness”
can protect against suicide.
Psychosocial interventions based on these
and appropriate treatment of mental disorders
has cut suicides among people at risk
in countries such as the UK and Finland.”
World Health Organization

The Truth is,
mandated testing is really meaningless,
in the grand scheme of things.
But, on the bright side,
corporate profits are up,
as they have effectively lobbied to market
these very expen$ive examinations.

“For the love of money
is the root of ALL evil:
which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the Faith,
and pierced themselves through with many
sorrows.
1 Timothy 6:10

By the way, Martin Carnoy, at Stanford University
and Richard Rothstein of the Economic Policy Institute
examined test series over the last decade.

An analysis of international tests suggests students in the U.S.
are not lagging behind their peers in other countries.
Based on their analysis,
the researchers found that average low,
partly because a disproportionately greater share of US students
comes from disadvantaged social class groups.

My Friends,
this is part of the price we pay
for living in a vibrant democracy.
We educate and test EVERYONE.
Many other countries test ONLY those
that are not screened out and placed in fast-track vocational programs.
If you are not bright enough,
off you go to the factory!
And guess what,
these students are not included in tests
that compare the U. S. with other nations.

Based on analysis,
these researchers found that average U.S. scores are low partly because a disproportionately greater share of US students comes from disadvantaged social class groups.
(Remember, we include EVERYONE in our testing.)

The analysis also shows how errors in selecting sample populations of test-takers and arbitrary choices regarding test content contribute to results that appear to show US students lagging.

Folks,
the UNFAIR and highly publicized comparative results create panic and stupidity in response to a very unreal scenario.
The results can be abhorrently devastating to your child,
who is NOT doing poorly in comparison.
The stress placed upon the teachers, administrators and your child
is unwarranted, and many times, destructive.
It is dangerous
and contributes to very deadly atmosphere that pervades academia.
We now live in a dangerously delusional place.
And only the Truth
shall set us free.

Remember the TECAT testing fiasco
the infamous Texas Examination of Current Administrators and Teachers. It was a test of basic literacy given to Texas teachers in 1980’s.
This test, seen as politically essential,
was intended to raise the public esteem of teachers
by weeding out incompetents.
Teachers expended massive effort in reviewing basic skills and drilling on the test format
(yes, the format of all things,
and totally useless in this Life or the Hereafter).

The focus in our public schools, at the time,
was drawn AWAY from teaching
and placed entirely upon preparation for the test.
99% of the 210,000 who took the test had passed
And we lost thousands of experienced vocational education teachers, special education-teachers and others who were over-represented among the failures. The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled it an UNFAIR TEST.
This, so called, literacy test, it ruled,
discriminated against teachers
who were black or over 40.

I recall one very dear and deeply Loved third grade teacher,
with over thirty years of experience,
who was so nervous that she could not cope with the stress.
It was over three decades ago when she took her last test in college,
at Texas Wesleyan University.
I was her Principal and found her to be not only highly competent,
but very, very Loving and deeply dedicated to every child.
The students in her class were privileged to be
in the Life-affirming, warm and Loving environment
she created for them.
I attended her funeral shortly after
she lost her employment and all hope.
I cried for weeks.
This was yet another example
of an ill-conceived assessment program
with deadly consequences.

Yes,
it was another testing fiasco
that slapped thousands of educators in the face.
It devastated the lives of precious, dedicated veteran educators –
people that our kids needed in their shop classes, elementary classes and special education programs.
What a horrible experience for everyone.
It scarred educators so much
that it was never repeated.

And all it accomplished,
other than spending our money in a cruel and unwise manner,
was to leave the landscape of so many dedicated and experienced educator’s lives in ruin.
What a way to appreciate those precious people
who chose a Life of near poverty
(yes, some teachers received food stamps to survive)
in order to help our children.
But,
we had people who needed to get re-elected,
regardless of the cost.

Remember folks,
your vote is the single most valuable thing you possess!
When you place someone in control of your life,
and the lives of your precious children,
by giving them your vote –
make certain that they possess the qualities of being truly
Human.
If compassion and common sense have not been
the hallmark of their Life,
vote for someone else.
It is that simple.

I have a suggestion for you.
Please take the last report card you received
and tack it to a wall.
Throw darts at it
until it has so many holes in it that you can see the light of day through it (another way of saying – the Truth).
Now,
when you have put enough holes in this byproduct of an ill-conceived, panic laden, distortion of reality,
you will realize that it shall never do your child much good.
After all,
it is not really accurate
and can convey negative connotations
that are simply
harmful.

These reports are are so subjective they are not really telling you much of anything, at all.
But, you got in some good practice throwing darts.
I also recommend the same for those self-destructive and illusory
state exam results.
You know,
the ones that have resulted in closing entire schools,
while stroking the egos of a few politicians.

Oh my God!
Please forgive us.
And hand me another dart.

                 Another result of too much testing?

If you really want to give your child an assessment,
give him or her a huge hug at the end of day
and tell the one you cherish just how much he or she is Loved by you. Take the time to say everything you ever wanted to tell your child,
each and every single day.
Let them know that they are the PERFECT Gift from God.
And they need not even try to improve upon such perfection.
Now that is a genuine and Heart-felt  assessment.
And it is one worth giving.

And,
if your really feel compelled to have a written report card,
write “I LOVE YOU” on a piece of paper,
fold in half
and hand it to your child.

I asked that you not use so much eye makeup.

I asked that you not use so much
eye makeup.

The Love of God is perfect. And the Gift He has given you, in a Child of His,
is all you need and all you shall ever need.
Please, do not even think about asking for more.
That would truly be an affront to God.
Please do not insult and offend the One who has given you a Perfect Gift in the form of His precious Child.

And please,
don’t allow your Child to be given contrived, superficial, highly subjective grades for anything. Do not allow some pretentious, philosophically antiquated, overtly biased and over bearing teacher to do this.
.

Hey,
give your kid a puppy, or a smile, or the wink of an eye, or a big hug
or a new toy or a good laugh or a trip to the back yard
to play with him or her.

Squirt your kid, regardless of age, with the water hose,
and then take off running.
(Expect to get wet within the next 15 seconds.
You cannot have more fun than a great water fight on a hot day).
.
Give your child the very firm knowledge that whatever they do
is good enough.
In fact,
tell him or her that what you EXPECT
is not to be perfect.
No one is.
No one.
It would be abnormal to be perfect.

Trust me,
you would not fit in with the rest of us.
A perfectly behaving child really doesn’t exist.
And, nothing good will ever come from it.

The only thing you should expect from your deeply Loved child
is that he or she
be Happy.
If he or she is not,
do something different.
If you think about what makes you Happy,
you can make someone else Happy.
It is that simple.

Yes,
it is important to graduate.
But in order to graduate,
you must survive.
You must be alive.
And your child will,
if you relax, and Pray and play with him or her
(by the way, more play results in a better preparation
for the game of Life.

And,
in many ways,
it is a game!

If your child is being provided with an antiquated grade from a philosophically outdated school, give the grade back to the teacher, where it belongs.
Yes,
just hand it back.
A superficial and subjective grade truly belongs
given back to the instructor.
Isn’t it a reflection upon how the child did
under the tutelage of that teacher?
.
Hand it back!
.
Ask why the teacher did not do a better job teaching your child.
And inform the teacher that you really don’t want or need his artificial appraisal of someone he will really never know.

Fear
can keep you, and your children,
from truly Living.

But,
with God on your side,
you need not fear anything or anyone.
You are perfectly Loved by your Creator.
In fact,
you are
the very definition of
perfection.

But perfection from Human beings is unattainable.
The expectation of perfection from Children
is as deadly
as any toxin, infection, contagion or
war.

So relax.

We are already perfect.
Now,
you can say a simple Prayer of Thanksgiving.
And give that perfectly wonderful Child of yours
a big hug for me.

Hey,
give me one too!
I will be perfectly Happy with that.

Goodnight.

7 Reasons To Live Frugally
from: allthingsfrugal.com

People have a variety of reasons to live frugally, but the last one on this list might surprise you. Why do you pinch pennies?

Necessity

Some folks have no choice but to live frugally. Unemployment or underemployment, unexpected medical bills, or the break-up of a marriage can leave you at the mercy of coupons and bargain bins. There’s no shame in that. In fact, it’s downright admirable.

Get Out Of Debt

Credit card interest rates create anorexic piggy banks, and student loans bear down like a slow moving vice. Paying off debt early saves money in the long run and frees up future funds for something else. Kudos to those of you eating a sandwich at your desk for lunch instead of digging the debt hole deeper with a fancy salad at an overpriced restaurant.

Save For Kids’ College

You don’t want to have the vice grip of student loans greet your kiddos upon graduation, so you’re saving now to pay for their college then. They may complain about not having $200 dollar sneakers today, but in a few years they’ll thank you for the gift of a debt-free education.

Saving To Buy A House

Dave Ramsey says that purchasing a house is one of the few times it’s okay to go into debt. However, to keep your mortgage payments and costs down it helps to have a good size down payment. Your home will build equity over time compared to flushing rental payments every month, but it takes some discipline in your spending to accumulate a big enough egg for your future nest.

Wedding

Whether you’re a future groom saving for the engagement ring or the bride whose parents refuse to give you the wedding of your dreams, weddings are a great motivation to live frugally. And it’s good practice for learning to share a bank account with someone else. Just remember that the wedding only lasts a few hours and the marriage lasts a lifetime. Invest accordingly.

Dream Vacation

Sometimes checking an item off your bucket list requires lots of advance planning and strategizing. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to visit the Louvre or kayak through the Grand Canyon or learn to surf in Australia or hike to the top of Kilimanjaro. Travel costs and supplies are costly. Don’t go into debt for the dream only to find out that paying for it is a nightmare. Save now and relish the memories later.

legacyFor Charity

Other folks, the very special among us, choose to live frugally so they can give generously. If this is you, maybe your pantry is filled with store brand items, but you paid for 25 people to have a warm meal at the local night shelter. You might be able to afford a bigger house, but you stay where you are and work to fund the local crisis pregnancy center. Maybe you have a heart for at-risk teens, adult literacy, refugee resettlement, human trafficking survivors, AIDS orphans, or Alzheimer’s research. What if frugal living was the first step toward becoming a philanthropist?

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.
