SALVATION!

soul connection

What brings salvation?

Seeing with the heart brings salvation! Listening with ears that are open-minded brings salvation too!

Releasing mean-spirited thoughts is helpful. As is choosing to stop mean-spirited actions.

Salvation can come when the thoughts and actions align in kindness. And when the thoughts and actions align in sympathy.

Four things that people get wrong

heart-angry

Common sense leads us to build our lives in generally wise ways. Sometimes though, our common sense gets derailed when we listen to others who cause us to question our wisdom. Many of these influencing people have a vested interest in us following their “advice”, because doing so enriches them or increases their influence. We can’t know everything so we do need to rely on information from others, but we have to be aware of the interests of the people who provide the information. Also, wisdom from the past that was once useful doesn’t always translate into wisdom for the present.

Here are four things we get wrong because of the various forces that cause us to think unrealistically.

1. Thinking that love is fairytale possible

People are meant to build deep relationships, but the relationships are not fairytale fantasies.  Relationships require gentle nurturing. They require realistic expectations and perceptions.

Storytellers and movie producers create fantasies of fairytale love, but the reality is different.  Many industries push people to teach their children that fantasy is possible, but reality is different and parents unintentionally raise their children to be disappointed and unhappy.

Life is lived in a more balanced way when love is understood to be a sense of obligation, a show of appreciation, an attraction to the inner character as well as to the outer appearance, a commitment of constant consideration, an openness to coexistence, and an unfailing commitment to kindness and acceptance.

“LOVE that is fantasy is love that is too unreal. This type of love is misunderstood and unattainable. This type of love is difficult and tiring. Falling in love is real as is feeling strong love for another person; however, “true love” is fabrication. Investing in the myth of a perfect love match is non-sustaining. Non-sustaining in terms of health and self-esteem and perception. Attaching to fabled storytelling is abusive, self-abuse.”

Fairytale love is explored, together with realistic loving relationships and unrequited love in the book Oneself–Living.

2. Thinking that people have a right to eat as much meat as they want

Many meat advocates push the consumption of meat products at one or more meals a day. They convince others that the meat is required to maintain strength and vitality.

The ease at which meat is obtained has led to a devaluation of its role in our diets. It has become underappreciated and disrespected. Meat consumption has become inhumane.

Meat is food that can be nourishing and satisfying.  Meat is meant to be eaten in moderation and with appreciation. Read more about meat consumption in these blog posts: Devouring delicious meat, Too much meat, and To eat farmed salmon or not?

3. Thinking that a religion is superior to others

“Religion is an accessway for connecting to God; it is not the destination. Elevating the religion, rather than the divine connection, disconnects people from God. Religions are approaches, they are not possessions to be coveted or aggrandized. ”

Throughout the wisdom writings I have received, the message has been clear:

“NO GROUP IS CLOSER TO SPIRIT THAN ANY OTHER.
NO GROUP SPEAKS FOR SPIRIT.
SPIRIT IS FOR ALL
= EQUALLY=
SPIRIT IS ALL-COME-TO-ME-JUSTLY!
Come justly without harm
To any others”

The quotes are from the books Descending into War, Descending into Contempt and Faith–A Wisdom Poem Sharing Spiritual Connection.

4. Thinking that toddlers want to sit in a forward-facing stroller/pushchair

Compared to the other misunderstood subjects, this one might seem small, but it impacts development of children. Most stroller/pushchair manufacturers tout the benefits of those that are forward facing (the child and parent are both facing forward). Common sense dictates that the toddler should face the beloved parent, but the parents are swayed by the marketing of the companies.

The direction that is best for children is explained in the blog post Strollers–which direction is best for the children.

Appendix Importance–why you should care (plus one more appendix flexibility exercise)

Appendix flexible

The appendix is misunderstood and underappreciated. It is an organ that baffles doctors and scientists, so they have dismissed its usefulness. In the last few years, some have begun to question science’s indifference to the appendix. A slow appreciation is beginning to take place. That’s good for us.

The appendix is an organ that initiates and monitors healing throughout the body. It works with glands to provide appropriate healing responses. It also handles end-of-life activities and responses. The appendix is a lifelong participant in the body’s daily work to maintain health.

Removal of the appendix affects healing responses. Some of the appendix’s work is absorbed by other bodily functioning, but not all. The lack of an appendix requires exertion by other organs, glands, and flows.

Keeping the appendix strong and flexible aids the body’s healing abilities. Here are blog posts to read:

Here is one more appendix flexibility exercise:

  1. Sit on a chair and press the bottoms of your feet together.
  2. Place your hands on your abdomen.
  3. Breathe deeply to and from your abdomen, and while you breathe extend your chest upwards.
  4. Aim to lift your chest as high as possible without straining your back and maintain a relaxed facial expression.
  5. Place your feet flat on the floor and keep breathing to your abdomen and lifting your chest.
  6. Slowly twist your upper body from side to side while breathing deeply and lifting your chest.
  7. While slowly twisting, inhale more deeply (the exhales can be deep or not).
  8. After a few of these twists, lower your chest to its normal position and breathe normally.
  9. Place your hands on your knees and pull your abdomen in and hold it there while breathing normally.
  10. When you feel that your abdomen is ready to relax, take your hands off your knees.

Exercises for a flexible appendix, Exercise 1

Appendix flexible

The appendix is an organ that can become rigid. Its rigidity is from overconsumption of disaccharides with alpha bonds (sucrose, maltose, trehalose), presence of certain bacteria, and digestive abnormalities.

Keeping the appendix flexible through diet and exercise helps prevent inflammation and infection. Dietary guidelines mainly relate to overconsumption of sweeteners that rely on the disaccharides with alpha bonds. Less is helpful.

Many exercises affect the flexibility of the appendix. Exercises that require consistent deep breathing, such as yoga, martial arts, and hiking in hilly terrain, naturally flex the appendix.

Here is an exercise that specifically affects the appendix and other internal organs.

  1. Sit on a chair, making sure that your feet are flat on the floor.
  2. Breathe deeply several times, increasing the depth of your breath each time.
  3. Bend forward until your body rests on your thighs.
  4. From this bent position breathe rhythmically, and then breathe several quick breaths.
  5. After the last quick breath, hold your breath for several seconds, and then release the air with a long exhale.
  6. Stay in the bent position and pull in your abdomen as much as possible without straining. Hold this position for several normal breaths.
  7. Relax your abdomen and breath normally a few breaths, then sit up.
  8. Breathe deeply several times, increasing the depth of your breath each time.
  9. Hold your breath one last time, and then release the air and breath normally.

Strengthening the appendix

Appendix strong

Strengthening the appendix is a worthwhile goal, because the appendix provides healing that the body needs. The appendix is not understood, but slowly, the medical establishment is starting to open to the reality that the appendix is useful.

Here are ways to strengthen your appendix and prevent inflammation or infection:

  • Eat whole, nutritious foods rather than foods that provide little to no nutritional value.
  • Consistently drink the amount of water that suits your body.
  • Help your body have regular bowel movements (without using chemical aids).
  • When your body feels ill, take care of it (naturally if possible).
  • Condition your appendix by doing exercises that work the peritoneum and diaphragm. Doing regular moderate movement is helpful.

Appendix toning exercise

This exercise is good for many of your internal organs. It involves physical movement and imaginative thinking (for step 2). Performing this exercise several times a week is good for overall toning of the appendix.

  1. Sit on a comfortable chair, making sure that your feet are flat on the floor.
  2. Pull your pelvic muscles up so that they feel as if they reach high into your abdomen. Keep pulling up for the rest of the exercise.
  3. Place your legs together and squeeze them together (not so tightly that it hurts your knees or ankles).
  4. Lower you head slightly, then place your hands on your cheeks and squeeze your arms in.
  5. Hold these pulling and squeezing positions, and breathe deeply 3 times.
  6. Release your body and breathe comfortably.

 

If your appendix was removed, the information provided here is still important. For information about how the body is affected when the appendix is removed, read this blog post: How does the body heal when the appendix is removed?

Eating at its best—Food 20/20

Food 20-20

The existing graphic presentations of balanced eating—the food pyramid, the healthy eating plate, MyPlate, Canada’s food guide, the Eatwell guide—are helpful, but they focus only on the foods.

Balanced eating requires more than consuming foods in nutritious percentages.

Food 20/20 is eating that is elevated and satisfying. Nourishment is more than consuming foods that supply nutrients to the body. Nourishment includes intention and atmosphere. Nourishment of the body nourishes the soul when the intention is appreciative of the food and the atmosphere is uplifting.

Let’s look closely at Food 20/20 to understand it.

Moderation. Moderation comes above all parts of Food 20/20, because moderation is needed in consumption and in intention. Foods eaten in moderate amounts nourish properly.

Appreciation (violet). Appreciation, without excessive fixation on being appreciative, helps food be spiritually nourishing.

Uplifting eating environment (indigo). The atmosphere in which food is eaten influences physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. When food is consumed in the company of others, in a relaxed pace, and without stress, the food is received by the body optimally.

The Blue group: Water and liquids. Water is the basic external requirement that we need in order to live. It is the food group that cannot be skipped. Nourishing liquids, besides water, that provide vitality are good. Liquids that contain substances such as caffeine, sweeteners (natural or synthetic), and colorings, are wizening.

The Green group: Vegetables-Whole grains-Nuts and seeds-Legumes. These foods form the basis of substances that are satisfying and balancing.

The Yellow group: Eggs-Meat-Dairy-Seafood. These foods require additional appreciation towards the lives that produce them. When eaten, they supply nourishment and satisfaction; however, they are less balancing than the Green group. The Yellow group appears with a dashed, gray line, because of ethical and sustainability concerns.

The Orange group: Fruit. Sweetness is best eaten slowly and savoringly. Fruit contains nutritious elements and unbalancing aspects. The sweetness can be unbalancing and requires balance from the Green group.

The Red group: Herbs-Flavors-Oils-Spices. These foods are best eaten in small amounts. They add tastiness and tweaked accessibility to the main groups of foods. Flavors include sweeteners such as date syrup, maple syrup, stevia, and honey. This group is meant to enhance food and not detract from food’s nutritious role. This group does not include eye-catching additives that harm health.

Food 20/20 presents the importance of non-food aspects of eating. These aspects are enclosed by dotted lines to indicate their intangibility. Appreciation is emphasized with a double oval, because of its effects on health.

The food groups decrease in size to indicate the amounts to be eaten. The foods in the Green group: Vegetables-Whole grains-Nuts and seeds-Legumes are meant to be eaten as the main elements of a healthful diet. The other groups are meant to be eaten in smaller and smaller amounts.

Following Food 20/20 opens the body to elevated health, relaxed malady responses, and fulfilling dining experiences!

Soul for the Body, Body for the Soul

infant

In preparation for my “Getting to Know Your Soul” workshop, I’m rereading Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul. I received the information for this book in 2014, and it still amazes me as before. I’d like to share a few quotes from the book that fascinate me.

Body and soul, soul and body—intertwined and independent. One can want one thing and the other can want something else, but whatever choices are made affects the other.

Bound and dependent, distinct and independent—duality in influencing the actions of each individual. The body and soul are joined at birth when the first inhalation occurs. The body and soul relinquish connection when bodily functioning has completely stopped and the pull of the soul towards next occurs.


The soul is tattooed on the countenance of each person, and awareness of this soul display is needed in order to understand what we are seeing when we look into the face of another.


Soul and body, body and soul—sameness in intangible form. The affixation of the soul and the body individualizes the tangible and intangible form. In other words, the physical being has a unique and joined presentation that is conforming to requirements of the soul and of the body. This individuality is expressed in fingerprints and other unique-to-me markings, both tangible (like the fingerprints) and intangible (likes, interests, etc.)


The soul is the reason for the body. The body is the means to living by the soul.
