There are so many things are bodies our exposed to in the world. This is an interesting article on how food irradiated caused damage in cats. They don’t think it has any link to humans, since our food is also irradiated.
It makes you wonder though……..how many diseases do you know now that were never heard of 60 years ago?
How many children did you hear having brain tumors or autism, etc. 60 years ago?
Irradiated Foods Cause Severe Neurological Damage
by Sherry Baker, Health Sciences Editor
In a study just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) report on cats developing severe neurological symptoms due to a degradation of myelin, the fatty insulator of nerve fibers called axons. Because myelin facilitates the conduction of nerve signals, when it is lost or damaged there can be impairment of sensation, movement, thinking and other functions, depending on what particular nerves are affected. This loss of myelin is found in several disorders of the central nervous system in humans — the best known being multiple sclerosis (MS).
Another brilliant piece on self love, acceptance and words of wisdom.
Why do we make it so hard?
Why do YOU make it so hard to love yourself?
Write it down…..let it go…..
The Door Is Always Open
You are free to leave this experience called suffering. You already have an out of jail pass. The golden key to this magical door is learning how to surrender to the Source of who you are, and let go of all your ideas about who you think you are. You can move through any stuck, painful or imprisoned feeling that arises by dropping into a deeper oceanic experience within your being.
“You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you, but you are standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed. Everyone is a masterpiece, because God never gives birth to anything less than that. Everyone carries that masterpiece hidden for many lives, no knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone. Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it. God himself has created you; you cannot be improved.” ~Osho
Words of wisdom we can take and remember in our lives as we choose and experience and create our lives every moment.
Love is the essence of who we are. It is an energy of our spirit. It is that which we are made. Love is infinite.
Love is hard to know until we experience it in the depths of our being. Love is known when we know ourselves again.
This is how the dictionary defines love.
“Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection and attachment. The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure to intense interpersonal attraction.”
It points us to the feelings and emotions we experience once we discover our spirit. Words used to describe love fall short. I don’t believe we have human words to describe the all-knowing and infinite.
We can only truly love others when we love ourselves!
Through my journey, the wisdom I was given is profound. I realized I cannot truly heal until I love myself unconditionally.
Love is the first step to everything in life. That is the foundation of everything we create and get in our lives. Too bad that isn’t the first subject taught in kindergarten, before the ABC’s.
I heard those words of wisdom flying home from Houston. I heard and wrote the words. To be whole, I had to heal body, mind emotions and spirit. But that was at the beginning of this journey. I had no idea what that meant. I had no idea where that profound wisdom was going to take me for 14 years.
It really seems all so simple. Why do we make it so hard?
Because we are human!
We must forgive ourselves for our past and move forward in self-love.
We think that our biggest challenges in life come from our kids or our work and careers. But our biggest challenge in life is to love ourselves completely. We carry so much guilt and pain around with us that we don’t even realize. Imagine this guilt and pain from years and years of our life as stuffed in suitcases. The suitcases eventually get so heavy it is hard to walk around with them. We try to lug them around and it slows us down. We don’t understand why things aren’t working, or why we can’t move forward, or why life seems so hard. We are carrying a heavy load, often unconscious.
I truly believe what will set us free to live life joyfully and in peace is loving ourselves and others unconditionally.
When everything else is stripped away, nothing else matters, and all there is left is love.
I remember laying in my hospital bed, crying uncontrollably after hearing the news of my cancer diagnosis. With such fear crawling through my entire being, I was lost and alone, but yet it all seemed so clear at the time. Nothing really mattered except love. Love for and from all the people around me.
Why is it so hard to love ourselves and others unconditionally?
Let’s start with loving ourselves.
GOD LIVES UNDER THE BED
I envy Kevin. My brother, Kevin, thinks God lives under his bed. At least that’s what I heard him say one night.
He was praying out loud in his dark bedroom, and I stopped to listen, ‘Are you there, God?’ he said. ‘Where are you? Oh, I see. Under the bed…’
I giggled softly and tiptoed off to my own room. Kevin’s unique perspectives are often a source of amusement. But that night something else lingered long after the humor. I realized for the first time the very different world Kevin lives in.
He was born 30 years ago, mentally disabled as a result of difficulties during labor. Apart from his size (he’s 6-foot-2), there are few ways in which he is an adult.
I have been learning unconditional love at another level. I believe as we travel this journey called life, we have infinite opportunities to grow, learn and be all we came here to be. There have been times that I have said, “great! I got that lesson from that experience, now I can check it off my list.” Only to see it come back in another experience, in a different form and another level.
At times we take the opportunity to grow from the experience and really experience the essence of who we are and the love we are. These are the times we let go of the past and use it to make room for something else greater to come into our lives. This is when everything clicks and it feels easy. Life flows and we feel happy, centered and balanced.
