Not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do is the secret of happiness.
TODAY'S BLOG IS ON A NEW SERIES, WHAT IS LIFE ABOUT AND WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE? AND WHY DO WE EXIST? PLUS, CONTINUING ON THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Countdown to some cooler weather, Autumn arrives in 14 days.
It’s the week-end coming up and today is STAND UP FOR CANCER DAY.
To Dan and I, this day is very personal, for we have experienced not only having cancer; but also experienced watching loved one’s died of the use of conventional treatments.
We have been blogging for years on prevention, methods other than conventional treatments, a lifestyle change and aftercare.
I welcome you to explore the blog with the #tag names on the right of the page.
As you look through the postings, you will see there is much more involved in keeping our bodies healthy.
So today Dan and I are starting on a new series, what is life about AND what is the meaning of life? AND why do we exist?
Everyone, from ancient Greek Stoics all the way to modern lifestyle gurus, have answered these kinds of questions in an endless variety of ways.
And yet, we still search for a satisfying answer.
Neither this post, nor any other one; can deliver a tangible solution to the curious case of life.
And that’s okay!
The truth is, part of what makes the meaning of life so alluring is its engrossing diversity, mystery, and intangibility.
However, it’s important to point out that the lack of a solid answer doesn’t mean it’s not worth looking for one.
The search for what life is about is a journey that each individual person must embark on for themselves.
Each person must look for their own, uniquely fulfilling answer to the question.
Fortunately, there are many different behaviors, ideals, and actions that humans have found over the centuries that can be excellent methods to draw us towards that final; inner conclusion of why we exist.
Continue tomorrow, what is the real meaning of life?
SEPTEMBER – 9th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about September that’s so significant during this month? Stand Up to Cancer Day – September 9, 2022
Stand Up to Cancer Day is observed every second Friday of September, on September 9 this year.
It is a day for creating cancer awareness.
To Dan and I, it means educating yourself on precaution, knowledge and changing your lifestyle.
It is also a time to support the fight against cancer, using various means.
The day has been observed since 2008, and it has helped to gather massive support from researchers and scientists.
Stand Up to Cancer Day, also known as National Stand Up to Cancer Day, was created out of goodwill to join the fight against cancer.
It is a holiday on which we spread awareness concerning cancer.
Awareness that Dan and I have been sharing for over eleven years, through our book, website and blogging.
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death nowadays.
But it was discovered long ago.
Writings about cancer were found in ancient Egyptian manuscripts dating back to 3000 B.C.
Although the word cancer was not used in the manuscripts, there is a very good description of what we today know as cancer.
It was the Greek physician Hippocrates, also known as the father of medicine; who called the disease by the name karkinos.
This means crab in Greek.
Since then, researchers have taken the time to study the disease carefully.
Stand Up to Cancer Day has been chosen to help raise awareness about the disease.
It is a day to evaluate the consequences of cancer in our society.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
SINCE YOU GET MORE JOY OUT OF GIVING JOY TO OTHERS, YOU SHOULD PUT A GOOD DEAL OF THOUGHT INTO THE HAPPUINESS THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO GIVE.
Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY
LOOKING AFTER YOUR EYES-
VISION OF NATURE-
We do not have to go to the ends of the earth to see beauty.
Very often it is right in front of us.
Even if you don’t have a garden or a balcony, you can enjoy plants in many ways.
If you have the chance to get out into nature, let it move you.
Become more observant of colors, shades, textures.
Look at the perspective of distance and contrast that to what you see close up.
Let your eyes expand to take in a total view, then close them and see what you can remember of it.
Bring your attention to something intricate, like a single flower with raindrops suspended inside like tiny pearls.
Examine the color, see how it changes, observe the stage and the astonishing geometry.
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to the findings that we all have our own blueprint.
Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.
Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the different ways through body, heart and soul.
It’s all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.
Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.
It’s important to know how it works!
Continuing on the subject that has it’s pro and con and that is; Immunization.
Since Edward Jenner demonstrated the use of cowpox vaccine against smallpox in 1796, vaccinations against smallpox were started.
Despite this, a smallpox epidemic swept England in 1839 and killed 22,081 people.
In 1853 the Government made smallpox vaccinations compulsory, but the incidence of the disease kept increasing, and in 1872 another epidemic killed 44,840 people, most of whom were vaccinated.
The compulsory vaccination law was abolished in 1948.
Similar disasters occurred in Germany and Japan, but possibly the worst was in the Philippines in 1918 when the US Government forced over three million natives to be vaccinated.
Of these, 47,369 came down with smallpox and 16,477 died.
In 1919 the program was doubled, and over seven million were vaccinated, of whom 65,180 came down with the disease and 44,408 died.
The epidemic was a direct result of the vaccination program.
These facts are described by Dr William F. Koch in his book The Survival Factor in Neoplastic and Viral Disease (1961).
Dr Koch further described the disastrous increase in polio incidence in the USA and Canada following the mass inoculation campaign against polio in 1958.
The highest increase was 700 per cent in Ottawa, Canada.
Dr Robert Mendelsohn in his book Confessions of a Medical Heretic questions the safety of all immunizations, including diphtheria and whooping cough, in a chapter titled, "If this is Preventive Medicine, I'll Take My Chances with Disease!"
Richard Moskowitz, MD, of New York in his lecture "Immunizations--A Dissenting View" commenced by saying: For the past 10 years or so, I have felt a deep and growing compunction against giving routine immunizations to children.
It began with the fundamental belief that people have the right to make that choice for themselves.
Soon I discovered that I could no longer bring myself to give the injections even when the parents wished me to.
Continue more tomorrow-
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.

Until Saturday, my Grandma Trula gave me the best advice of my life.
She said, whatever you do,
don’t wake up at 65 years old and think about what you should have done with your life.
