CONTINUING THE SERIES OF QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
It’s the weekend and here in the United States, we are celebrating Memorial Day weekend. So, everyone Happy Memorial Day weekend.
I woke up in a different place, we are visiting friends and this came to me; it’s in the heart that we access the core qualities of love, compassion, care, kindness, forgiveness and appreciation that lift us above separation, judgment and blame. More people than ever have been experiencing and expressing an abundance of these enriched heart qualities over the past few months, recognizing that this is who we truly are. Through intentionally demonstrating these heart qualities in our lives, we have a unique opportunity to continue an awakening of our heart’s natural, compassionate care and desire to create the future together in harmony.
Yes, it takes a little energy to practice, but not as much as it takes to recoup from the stress and health problems that accrue from not including our heart’s qualities and guidance in our interactions and choices.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
THERE ARE 12 LAWS OF KARMA
Law three – the law of humility. What you resist persists for you. The energy of something you don’t want cannot be cleared or changed by expending more of that same energy. In order to see better, you must do better.
NOTE AND REPEAT – PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth
Dan and I for several years have shared our experiences with enjoying life while managing cancer.
By keeping healthy, our routine daily has been walking (exercise), meditation (for stress), Qigong (exercise and for stress). So, by now you know this is always in our routine for healing and keeping our body cells happy.
Thinking back, Dan and I were taught everybody is unique and should be treated individually.
Through blood work and scans, I was given a plan of treatments. Per Dr. Perez and Dr. Garcia, that was the start; the rest was up to me. For you see, keeping healthy is a lifestyle and that would be up to me. I remember this one moment, a conversation with Dr. Perez; I asked him if I would be around in five years. He, replied it was up to me and how I live my life. Through their love and passion, I’m sharing through this blog our process of keeping healthy – it’s like a journal of our personal journey keeping healthy. Leading to why I ask you, did you do your walking?
I know some will say they do not have enough time with work, kids and household chores!!!
Dan and I have put together videos from WALK AT HOME together on our website, that you can follow in home; when you have short periods of time and unable to go out. They are from 15 mins up to 30 mins depending on the miles. This is one of the first steps to making your cells happy!!

THE JOY OF MISSING OUT
I don’t get all that social media stuff. I’ve always got other things I want to do, odd jobs around the house. No one wants to hear about that. By Karl Pilkington
As I continue to be re-reading my book that I wrote four years ago; it’s a personal journey of my everyday experience with treatments that I received in Mexico. In relations to the current series of QUOTES ABOUT LIVING, Humanity of The Human Heart - Through Dying I Had Life
As a small child, I can remember my first encounter with this terrible disease called cancer.
Although, I did not understand why my aunt was going through pain, I was told she had cancer.
One day she was with us and the next I was at this funeral home reaching down to give her my last kiss. The experience was so cold and I will never forget that day. Time past and then another aunt passed, which experienced the same pain. Through dying I had life.
When I was diagnosed six years ago, with breast cancer, I was reminded of the experiences that I endured in the past. All my family members had surgery, chemo and radiation and still died.
Why would I choose this way, I did not want to go through all this suffering? I wanted to live a quality of life, even if it meant a year or two. Maybe I was a coward, but why would anyone today put themselves through all that pain and suffering. Through dying I had life.
gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles.
Going back, this disease hit even closer to home. I remember the first-time cancer affected me; it was one day in school. I made 2nd honors and was very proud, until my teacher handed out report cards. She called everyone’s name, until it came to mine. Sherry, sorry I cannot give you your report card for your father has not paid your tuition. Not understanding this I was able to call my mom and I still can picture this in my mind, I cried and told her they would not give me my report card. That day she came down to find out why. My father always paid in the beginning of the month, but cancer struck and tuition was something that was not first on my parent’s mind.
Happy to say, I finely got my report card, but was embarrassed in class because of cancer. Through dying I had life.
For about three years I watched my father go through surgery, chemo and radiation. The suffering was unbearable, no child should have to experience a parent slowly die. Through dying I had life.
On my sixteenth birthday, my father was being operated on his brain. I can still picture going to see him the day after and him and my mom gave me my birthday gift together. This was a family tradition, a sweet sixteen ring. My last gift from my father before he passed away. My birthday was in January and he left us in September. Through dying I had life.
It’s still all a blur to me. This affected me and my family in so many ways. When I was in high school, the tuition was too much for my mother to pay the total amount for three children. In order to complete my school years with my friends, I had to work around the school for half of the tuition. During this time of my life, it was very difficult, for how to explain to my friends not only the cancer that my father was enduring, but how it was affecting his mind. Through dying I had life.
You see, the cancer went to his brain, which changed his personality. He thought he was someone else. I had to search within myself for I was raised Catholic and when my father thought he could change the world by rewriting the bible, picking up hitchhikers, and buying land to build his church. This was too much for our family to take, so how would my friends understand. At this time, I lost friends for they did not know how to handle what I was going through. The pain of what my father was going through was more than cancer, it destroyed him. My father passed on September 16th on my younger sister’s 8th birthday. Through dying I had life.
After living through high school, a year later, I lost two more Uncles to this terrible disease. Years later I met Dan my husband and it seemed all the pain that I experienced went away. We became a family with a daughter, enjoying life and not thinking of the past. Then it hit again, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. The memories came back for watching my mother-in-law go through the same procedures which led to death. Through dying I had life.
This time I was the mother and had to explain the death to my four-year-old daughter. I did not want her to have the same experience that I went through, so I explained the death like sleeping beauty with all the flowers that surrounded her. That Christmas, my mother-in-law had saved money up for her grand kids. She had passed away on September, the same day the 16th on a Monday as my father did seventeen years ago, that Christmas she knew my daughter wanted a doll house. Christmas day there was a doll house under the tree. We explained that Grandma delivered it from Heaven. Through dying I had life.
Since then, I have lost cousins, Aunts, Uncles from cancer doing surgery, chemo and radiation. Through dying I had life.
Coming back to me and when I was diagnosed with cancer, why would I go through more pain and suffering. It did not work for them and the quality of life that they endured was unbearable. This is why Dan and I explored the possibility of other methods that were not so invasive. We found it and I have lived longer and healthier than others that had cancer in my family. I learned that first you have to do a life change for there was a reason why I was struck with cancer. Through dying I had life.
Again, two years later from when I was diagnosed with cancer Dan my husband was told he had prostate cancer. We did not have to think, we know what our decision would be. He went for the same treatments as I did. Through dying I had life.
Today, we are healthy and have managed our cancer without surgery, chemo or radiation. Dan and I are so humble that we broke the cycle and learned other methods to treat cancer without the conventional way that killed our family member’s. This is why I am so passionate on educating others on the methods we used. The suffering and pain that I endured by seeing and watching my family members suffer and ending up in death somehow has given me life. Through dying I had life.
The memories of my father, mother-in-law, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, friends will not be forgotten.
The death of millions every year can change with research and knowledge of other methods. We need to make a change - Humanity of The Human Heart.
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Today I’m going to start blogging on another herb – NUTMEG. If a person eats nutmeg, it will open up his/her heart, make his/her judgement free from obstruction and give him/her a good disposition.
Nutmeg is one of the world’s most used spices. It is a staple in both sweet and savory dishes all over the world. The spice originated in Indonesia and has since been cultivated to grow in most countries the world over. The most common blend of nutmeg comes from Myristica fragrans, which is an evergreen tree. The flavor profile of the spice is slightly sweet with an exotic, earthy slant.
Aside from its use in food, it also offers a wide range of health benefits. Many people have been using nutmeg in medicinal tonics and as part of homeopathic cures. It has been known to have been used to fight the plague as well as offer a much-needed boost to the brain in the form of natural stimulation. The spice can be found as a whole seed, but in most western countries, it is sold in the form of a powder.
Until Sunday, Dan and my mission in life is not only to enjoy life, but to help others to feel the joy of life. Don’t be the reason someone feels insecure. Be the reason someone feels seen, heard, and supported by the whole universe.
