They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
CONTINUING 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.
Yes, its Monday.
Wishing you a wonderful start to the new week.
And a countdown to some cooler weather, Autumn arrives in 11 days.
Now since you are awake and hopefully had your coffee, lets start with the meaning in life.
Meaning is not only about transcending the self, but also about transcending the present moment.
While happiness is an emotion felt in the here and now, it ultimately fades away; just as all emotions do, positive affect and feelings of pleasure are fleeting.
The amount of time people reports feeling good or bad correlates with happiness, but not at all with meaning.
Do you know what's missing in your life that holds you back from living life to the fullest?
According to a study, you can find the meaning in your life by assessing three dimensions of your life.
The first one is purpose and we will continue tomorrow –
SEPTEMBER – 12th, 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?
National Day of Encouragement – September 12, 2022
This day is dedicated to encouraging and having a positive impact on those around us.
The best thing about this day is that you can make someone happy by simply saying a few words of encouragement.
Your words have the power to lift someone when they are down.
They also have the power to motivate someone who might be struggling or encourage someone to pick themselves back up after a setback.
A small act of encouragement could be the spark that changes a loved one’s perspective.
To praise and encourage someone’s efforts is a practice worth having, no matter the day of the year.
In 2007, a group of young people at the National Leadership Forum at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas; came up with the idea of The Encouragement Project.
The group went on to start a celebration which they called the National Day of Encouragement.
This was the result of a grim reality; these young people saw a lack of encouragement as one of the main obstacles that the youth face.
They recognized the urgent need to help each other overcome negative influences.
Since the day before September 12 is such a tragic day in American history, National Day of Encouragement was also seen as a day where people across the country could get together and support each other through the grief of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
September 12 is therefore also observed as a day to honor the victims and those who continue to be affected by mindless bigotry.
Following the day’s creation, the first official to issue a proclamation was Belinda LaForce.
She was the then-mayor of Searcy.
The day was recognized on August 22, 2007, and the celebrations were observed on September 12 that very year.
Soon afterward, Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe issued a proclamation designating September 12 as State Day of Encouragement.
President George W. Bush signed a document in 2007 designating the day as the National Day of Encouragement.
A Senate resolution for the day was introduced by Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor and was passed by unanimous consent on September 13, 2011.
Needless to say, National Day of Encouragement holds significance for all Americans.
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.
THE FUTURE IS NOW. THE PAST IS NOW. YOUR INFLUENCE IS ALWAYS NOW.
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
We need to eat to survive, but we also like to enjoy it.
Over the millennia of our evolution, we have grown to like countless flavors and texture in our foods.
The tongue is the main physical structure linked to taste.
A smooth pad covered with tiny taste buds scattered over the surface.
We can distinguish sweet, sour, bitter, and salty tastes in the mouth itself.
The textures of food are picked up by thousands of tiny nerve endings in the tongue, which can detect minute differences in feel such as a tiny bone in a mouthful of fish.
Yet there is a lot more to taste than the tongue.
The complex experience of flavor is also down to the sense of smell, as much as 80% of our sense of taste comes through the nose.
Think about that the next time you pay for an expensive meal!
Tomorrow, TASTES OF HISTORY AND TRADITION-
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.
Dr Moskowitz went on to describe how the incidence of whooping cough had already precipitously declined long before the pertussis vaccine was introduced, as had tuberculosis, cholera, typhoid and other scourges of a bygone era similarly declined in response to better living conditions long before vaccines for them were developed.
But that medical science had been mistakenly given credit for the improvement.
Dr Moskowitz's thirty years of observations of the sheer ineffectiveness of immunization programs makes one wonder why the procedures continue to be persevered with.
However, worse than the ineffectiveness are the severe and sometimes fatal reactions that frequently follow vaccinations, to an extent so bad that in many countries vaccination programs have been abandoned, while at the same time the World Health Organization (WHO) no longer insists that international travelers be vaccinated against the diseases once considered so dangerous.
Dr Moskowitz said, far from producing a genuine immunity; the vaccines may act by actually interfering with or suppressing the immune response as a whole, in much the same way that radiation, chemotherapy, and corticosteroids and other anti-inflammatory drugs do.
Artificial immunization focuses on antibody production, a single aspect of the immune process and disarticulates it and allows it to stand for the whole; in much the same way as chemical suppression of an elevated blood pressure is accepted as a valid substitute for a genuine cure of the patient whose blood pressure has risen.
Worst of all, by making it difficult or impossible to mount a vigorous; acute response to infection, artificial immunization substitutes for it a much weaker, chronic response with little or no tendency to heal itself spontaneously.
That the sudden introduction of a foreign substance into the tissues of the body is sensed by the body as a traumatic event is easily comprehensible, particularly when the body is that of a tiny infant and it is little wonder that the vaccinations of infants is held to be by many doctors the prime factor in infant deaths.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.

CHANGE THEM YOURSELF
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. #alwayssay#timechangesthings#actually#change#themyourself#whydoweexist#whatislifeabout
Until Tuesday, nobody ever sees their own face in the glass.
What they observe there is a compound, divided into three parts;
one part of them as they really are, one part representing what they expect to see and a third part; what they wish to behold.
