God's Pharmacy - You Are What You Eat

I don't really go in for this kind of crap circulating around via email . . . but its kinda cool. Maybe it is just the pretty pictures. . .

It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish... All before making a human. He made and provided what we'd need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw. We're such slow learners...

God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body! God's Pharmacy! Amazing!

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... And YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocados, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

This candle was lit on the 15th of September, 1998. Someone who loves you has helped Keep it alive by sending it to you. Don't let The Candle of Love, Hope And Friendship die! Pass It On To All Of Your Friends and Everyone You Love!

More thoughts on life and love

Life is an ongoing quest for love. We find it where we can, too often take it for granted when we have it, and ache for it when it is missing, perhaps having been ripped from us, seemingly without reason.

And yet, though life may be short, love is ever fresh each time it sparks anew.

Therefore, let us not waste time playing games, conforming to some meaningless code of conduct, when we suddenly find ourselves staring deep into the eyes of love.

Rather, gaze deep into each other's eyes. Savor small gestures and thrill to each gentle touch as it lights the spark of fresh, new beginnings. Be open to the possibility of love as you linger in each other's presence. Reach out yet be receptive.

Evening at Fish Creek

Evening draws nigh,
Dark boughs against pale sky.
High thin clouds
Stretched like gossamer
Across towering pines.

The rythmic strains
Of an Irish fiddle floats
Like wood smoke on the water
Across Fish Creek Pond

Children circle
And dance
And spin
Like colonial algae.

Each New Day is More of the Same (or How I Woke Up on the Wrong Side of the Bed, Again)

The earth spins at 1,000 mph & cruises 'round the sun at 67,000 mph, and our solar system revolves at 558,000 mph, so why is each new day just more of the same?

Well, that's not exactly true, because today, at least there is no rain. The sky is clear, and the sun shall be allowed to warm the earth. The succession of ridges and mountains across the horizon have taken on that familiar, summertime haziness that emphasizes distance like a faded watercolor panorama.

It is the sort of day that makes you think, "all is right with the world," whether all things are right with your world or not. And, chances are, very little is right with the world. But, thankfully, it is days like today that help us stare down mortality, forge ahead and struggle onward.

Weather Pattern

Another in a long string of dark, cold, damp days. Today, an insidious, bitter, bone-chilling micro-mist envelopes the body and grips the spirit like a carbonado skeletal hand that pierces your sternum and crushes your heart in its merciless grasp.

The Banjo Players Must Die

No one knew where they came from; their origin was clouded. Oh, there were theories of course, but there was no evidence. All attempts to scour the records of antiquity for clues were fruitless. No matter how far back in history you went, there they were. Running. Screaming. Pleading for mercy and receiving none. Their appearance did not appear to have changed much in the course of several eons; it suited Darwin's proponents well to ignore them, for they did not evolve. They were the universal constant; always there, always persecuted, always the fugitives from the oppressive forces of divine moral rectitude, and always - always - defiantly playing away on their banjos.

From "The Banjo Players Must Die" by Josef Assad

Rewind the Winds of Time

Stop the world,
I want to get off.

Rewind the winds of time
And let me do it all again.
Let me appreciate what I had.
Let me be in the moment, again.

I've got no time for now,
I'm trying to recall
Each moment of then.
You. Me.

Mornings on couches,
Days at the beach.
Arms and hands and lips and breasts.




"Children & barbarians have clear ideas of justice due to them, but no idea at all of justice due FROM them."

• Murray Lenstier, "Med Ship"


It feels odd to become the superseded generation, as our children start off on their life paths. I can remember myself at that age, when my parents' lives barely registered on my radar. Our role becomes that of the interested observer, close to the role our parents, if surviving, still take in our own lives.

I'm not ready to pack it in. I enjoy the activities & opportunities I have with my own generation and look forward to being able to direct more time into their pursuit. Still, it is funny to scan my list of facebook friends and see how many are within a year or two of the half century mark. Not so funny is the realization that actuarial time & chance has begun to whittle down the pool of survivors.
