POUNDING THE ROCK, POSITIVE THINKING
Today since its Sunday; in 1881 a social activist NARAYANA MEGHAJI LOKHANDE (FOLLOWER of JYOTHI BAI PHULE) started a movement against the British to declare Sunday as a holiday. He wants Sunday as a holiday to take care of social problems around us. He continued the movement up to 8 years after that the British govt. declared Sunday as the holiday in 1889.
For a lot of religion’s its also a day of worship. According to the Ten Commandments, the Sabbath is located on the seventh day of the week. Exodus 20:8-10 says the following, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. Dan and I continue to stay focus on positive thinking. Still hunkering down, now 61 days.
The saying POUND THE ROCK comes to mind, for we had season tickets to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when Jon Gruden was the coach. This was their moto during the time of the Super Bowl win of 2002. It was all about positive thinking that with hard work, anything is possible. Those were the days and the memories that will be treasured always.
When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before. — Jacob Riis
When Dan received the news that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he four years later wrote an article on the blog relating to football with positive thinking.

TOUCHDOWN -SUPER BOWL SUNDAY
Since it was World Cancer Day yesterday and today is Super Bowl Day, I wanted to share this story with you. It goes back four years ago, when my husband found out he had prostate cancer. Since then he has managed with cancer no more.
Touchdown, with the treatments and the change of life both of us has the quality of life that leaves our lives with no long-term side effects.
BIOPSY AND RESULTS
Before I start with my situation, Its October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I cannot express enough to do your homework and research all. It’s not your doctor’s choice, but yours. Do you want cut, burn or chemo or do something less invasive? Either way it will cost you, with insurance or without. Insurance usually does not cover all of the process. I am glad my wife and I made the choice we did.
First of all, I would like to say that I am recovering from a hernia operation and was unable to blog until now. Since it is now football season, I am going to compare my life and the situation to a football game and at this time I have made it to the first down. The second down is the day that I had my biopsy. It was not that long until they called me back and the doctor prepared me for the procedure in his office. He gave me a local and started the nightmare. If anyone ever had a prostate biopsy, you know that it is not something that you look forward to.
Well, I did not think it would ever end but the doctor took 12 tissue samples, and replied all finished. The nurse came in and stood me up~ the room was moving and I was feeling like I was going to pass out. She helped me back down and got a cold cloth to put on my forehead and gave me a cup of water. The doctor stuck his head back in the room to say that sometimes this happens and I could stay until I felt comfortable in leaving; but the office closes in about twenty minutes. Sherry came in the room and asked the nurse for some coke for a sugar rush, which will help me not feel so spacey. It did the trick; I was ready to go home.
We made another appointment a week later for the results. I felt like I went a couple of yards and then Third Down! This time we waited about twenty minutes before I was called back. The doctor came in the room with his computer and said; you are here for the results of your biopsy ~ YES! Well, he came right out and said I have prostate cancer. You know all my patients have this shock look on their face when I tell them this, but I always tell them the procedures and percentages of what can be done. This was not new to us for about two years ago, we went through this with Sherry. He proceeded to go on with all the procedures and stated that two out of the twelve samples were cancerous. He gave us information and stated that he would like to see me back within two weeks. I looked at all the info and its cut, burn and chemo. Not what I want. I called Sherry’s doctor in Mexico, Dr Perez and he spent time on the phone explaining the different procedures that were there and the one they offer which is best for me.
Unconditioned 💗 Spirit 💖 Stands💗
Good morning Sunday 🌞 remember in our inmost being we are completely lovable because spirit is love❣️ Beyond what anyone can make you think or feel about yourself, your unconditioned Spirit stands, shinning with a love nothing can tarnish 💗⌛💗
It’s much like the one Sherry had with her stem cells. The process before going to Mexico will require some current blood work, for them to review before treatment to begin.
Meanwhile, I had my left hernia repaired last Thursday. The good old American way, I had to go to another doctor, for my family doctor and the urologist could not treat me for this condition. I had to go to a general surgeon. The big day is finally over and healing process is starting. The doctor could not do lapascopy; he had to cut me open. The stitch mark is about three inches long. It’s been a slow recovery. The tackle was a hard hit, but I will get back up to fight for a touchdown.
My plans are, once my hernia repair heals, I will be going to Mexico for the final play the touchdown. At that time, I will continue with my fight with the journey to completion.
Through hard work and pounding that rock, both of us have managed our cancer.
Much like with the situation today with the corona virus, we need to stay positive and pound the rock to keep safe and healthy. We need to act with caution and continue to take the precautions that was advice from the beginning.
I had spoke to one of my sisters the other day, we got on the subject of energy and how prayer meditation helps pull good energy together. She agreed with enough people meditating together we can change the direction the light is going. How to Boost Positive Energy — Remembering the Truth: "We Are All One”. Imagine that we are all simply grains of sand on the beach, each a separate manifestation of the one great whole. Whether holding grudges or harboring resentment — negative emotions toward mankind pollutes the whole beach. Is the loneliness, isolation and depression now plaguing our society really such a surprise? Then, what is the solution? How can we reach a critical mass of higher awareness? Easy, meditation! The shift in consciousness achieved through meditation naturally makes you aware of the highest and perhaps most heavily guarded truth — We Are All One. Black or white, republican or democrat, religious or atheist, rich or poor. We humans are far more alike than we are different, we all have the same basic needs, wants, and motivations — health, happiness, purpose, and love. Meditation helps you remember that we are all in this thing together. If the ship sinks, everyone goes overboard.
Connect to the Universe
Connect to the Nature Source!! Ask and You Shall Receive Anything you wish to manifest. Manifestation starts from within, so whatever you wish to change for yourself should start with the change from inside out.
So, today Sunday 5-17-2020 at 6:30 p.m. eastern I’m starting a time of prayer meditation to create positive energy to give back to our universe for all the gifts that we were blessed with. This will continue for three months, during the re-opening of the countries. Meditate from your home on your own during this time.
One of the universe's abilities is to create an environment that is suitable for a knowing living entity to sustain existence. Let’s meditate through light to give power to manage the corona virus, which will create a normal state of mind. Please share, for more the better.
