YOU and Marcus Aurelius and his book “Meditations

One of the world’s most famous and influential books,

Meditations, by the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius incorporates

the stoic precepts he used to cope with his life as a warrior and

administrator of an empire.  Ascending to the throne in A.D. 161,

Aurelius found his reign beset by natural disasters and war.  In the

wake of these challenges, he set down a series of private

reflections, outlining a philosophy of commitment to virtue above

pleasure and tranquility above happiness.


Marcus wrote for himself, to improve himself, to consider what

and who he should be; as a result, he wrote a guide for the rest of

of us.


Self-perception, self-examination, and the power to make of itself

whatever it wants. it reaches its intended goal, no matter where

the limit of its life is set.  Marcus Aurelius makes comments and

points based on faith and as a believer, I like that.

Marcus Aurelius kept a diary and “Meditations” is from those

journals and writings.


There are different translations and you just have to find a

translation that works for you.  But, they all will follow the thought

process and wording of Marcus Aurelius’.


“Meditations” are unique in classical literature because it is the

personal and philosophical diary written in Greek by an

intellectual Roman emperor without any thought or intention of

publications – and remain of unique interest and relevance to the

modern world.  A lot of his thoughts and writings in the

diary is held by many when reading them today.


I loved reading his biography many years ago by Anthony R>

Birley.  I am sure there are other biographies about Marcus.

Here he was a Roman Emperor and writing about:










The following could be said by any number of motivational

speakers today:


“Do not imagine that, if something is hard for you to achieve, it is

therefore, impossible for any man but rather consider anything that

is humanly possible and appropriate to lie within your own reach



How wonderful to know that thought from a Roman Emperor?




“If someone can prove me wrong and show me my mistake in any

thought or action, I shall gladly change.  I seek the Truth, which

never harmed anyone; the harm is to persist in one’s own self-

deception and ignorance.



Here we are, how many centuries beyond Marcus Aurelius, a stoic

prince who became an Emperor, after Hadrian who as far as I have

read never thought that deeply about much except his next move

as Emperor.  And I did read a biography of him and the Hadrian

wall and all his wars and being away from Rome for long periods

of time.











YOU and a really good probiotic


Dr. Axe talks about the first and most overlooked reason that our

digestive tracts are critical to our health is because 80 percent of

our immune system is located in your digestive tract.


In addition to the impact on our immune systems, our digestive

systems are the second largest part of our neurological system.  It

is called the enteric nervous system and is located in the gut.

That is why it is called our second brain


Many people have health issues, such as thyroid imbalances,

chronic fatigue, joint pain, psoriasis, autism and many other

conditions do not realize that these illnesses originate in the gut.


If these issues and many others are connected to our gut health,

then what elements are essential for digestive health?


The statistics are staggering, yet poor gut health actually affects

much greater numbers than these statistics illustrate.

Your digestive health affects every physiological system in your



The many toxins we are subjected to today decrease digestive

function, affecting our ability to utilize nutrients and dried ourselves

of cholesterol, triggering chronic inflammation in the body, which

is the cause of many chronic conditions and diseases.

another secret to restoring your digestive health is all about

balancing out the good and bad bacteria in your gut.  If you are

going to be healthy, you must consider consuming probiotic-rich

foods and supplements daily.


Probiotics are bacteria that line your digestive tract and support

your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection.  There

are actually 10 times more probiotics in your gut than cells in

your body.


Your skin and digestive system by themselves host about 2,000

different types of bacteria.  Probiotics benefits have been proven

effective in supporting immune function and healthy digestion, as

well as beautiful skin.


Good gut bacteria are also responsible for:

Production vitamin B12

Crowding out bad bacteria, yeast, and fungi

Creating enzymes that destroy harmful bacteria

Stimulating secretion of lgA and regulatory T-Cell


Adding more probiotic foods into your diet, you could see all of the

following probiotics benefits:

Stronger immune system

Improved digestion

Increased energy

Better breath

Healthier skin

Reduced cold and flu

Weight loss


Dr. Axe continues on about the top 7 Probiotic killers are:

Prescription antibiotics



GMO foods


Emotional stress

Chemical and medications


Research has proven that there are at least 20 benefits by taking



Boosting immune system

Preventing and treating urinary tract infection’s

Improving digestive function

Healing inflammatory bowel conditions

Managing and preventing eczema in children

Fighting food-borne illnesses

And new studies are underway that may soon prove probiotics

can help with much more.









YOU and Benefits of Magnesium are endless

Information below is from website:


Some of the facts about magnesium from ancient to today and

your body.


Magnesium is essential for the human body, integral for plant

Earth, and is used in many electronic today.

Magnesium reaches across many platforms of use.

Our bodies need magnesium

Earth’s crust has magnesium

Plants need magnesium

Used to construct missiles, automobiles, cell phones, and computers

Also, assists in medicine production


It is white and gray in color

Just as essential to your diet as potassium or calcium

Magnesium has an effect on more than 300 bodily chemical

reactions.  Maintain heart health, sustaining blood vessels,

boosting and maintain energy levels, product in new cells and

proteins, and enabling enzyme activity.

These chemical reactions not only affect the overall health of your

body, but your ability to perform daily tasks.

Sir Humphrey Davy discovered magnesium in 1755:  but that is

not really when people realized it’s potential –and probably in

ancient times it was part of their history.


Listed below are some facts:

Magnesium is one of the most common mineral deficiencies.

The chemical element symbol for magnesium is Mg.

The atomic number for magnesium is 12

Magnesium is essential for photosynthesis to take place

Magnesium has a boiling point of 1,091F.

Aside from sodium, magnesium is the most plentiful metal found

in seawater

Magnesium is essential for life: not only for our bodies, but for us

planet as well


10% of the Earth’s mass is made up from magnesium

the human body absorbs anywhere from 10-50% of magnesium


magnesium is essential for sleep

Listed below are some signs of inadequacies of magnesium:

Respiratory issues


Calcium deficiency

Nausea, dizziness, and fatigue

Type 2 diabetes

Poor memory functions or confusion


Muscle cramping

Irregular heartbeat

Involuntary eye movements or tremors


Loss of appetite

Panic attacks

Heart disease

Bowel disease

Blood clots


Listed below are benefits:


Bone health


Muscle building

Chronic pain

Eases muscle pain

Heart health

Insulin and diabetes





Collagen production

Bladder control


I have taken magnesium into my body for probably 15 years.  For

years I used the transdermal magnesium in my bath water, and

still love that but at the present I take magnesium along with

melatonin for my sleep and I must say my sleep pattern has never

been better.

When I used transdermal magnesium I ordered it from:

Global Light network out of San Antonio and any products they

have are A+ and probably as close to anything organic one can


Mark Sircus also has a book about “Transdermal Magnesium

Therapy” which is excellent.

YOU and GOD and science

GOD is everything to me. He created all, all the universes, all the

way everything functions, and if YOU look at the Fibonacci theory

that tells a lot about GOD because everything GOD has made

can be traced by the Fibonacci theory – numbers.


But, there is a new DVD that can be ordered and really understand

that GOD is becoming better understood in the scientific

community and scientist themselves are coming to understand

that GOD is the force behind everything.


“The Principle” movie can be ordered online.

It talks about how scientist are becoming more acceptable that

GOD created all.  I am sure there are always going to be atheists

but many will change over time


“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at


Just like Immanuel Velikovsky – anyone different in theory from

the norm and from what universities having been taught for

probably centuries and anyone attending those universities has

believed what they have been taught – like a “wedge” of the pie

only.  Read about how the head of Harvard went after Velikovsky

for years-all Velikovsky’s research has proven to be valid over the

years and theories change and become solid science.


Science has been grappling with basic assumption into that

question for years.  About GOD.


The spirit of LIFE is grounded in that GOD has created all and

science and creation are blending and it is too perfect to be a

happenstance.  But, again look at the Fibonacci theory or series as

some say.


Watch Michael Schneider’s YouTube talk about how an artichoke

is created and YOU will understand how more and more scientist

are having to turn to GOD as the creator of all.  Look at the planets,

vibration, the rotating and the movement of all planets.


The more scientist study the universe, the closer the scientist

seem to come to GOD.


Belief is a wonderful thing that we humans have – everyone has

certain beliefs and the important thing to remember is that as we

age or develop in LIFE – our belief system can change or become

really strong in our grounded beliefs.


There are probably always going to be atheists but as science

proves more and more is explained about the universe operates

there will be more of a change towards GOD and all he has



Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., is the director of the Human

Genome Project.  He is a scientist and a believer and finds no

conflict between those world views.


JOY for today.

Age healthy

Prevention Theory





The mind can trap you to feeling irritable and exhausted but can

stress and harm to those around us because we can become very

demanding as we seek absolute control and perfection from

everyone and everything around us.


When YOUR expectations are not met exactly as we want, we

experience feelings of intense frustration.  T can be a huge cause

of stress because we use so much energy trying to make things

unfold exactly as we want them.  It is exhausting for us, as well as

everyone else around us.


Do not get caught in the grip of the expectations trap we can

become very demanding.  When we invest greatly in something or

someone, then we tend to expect a far greater return.  This is

often between parents and children.  The parent is desperate for

the child to live up to their expectations.  These could be passed

down through the generations.


Child will almost certainly rebel in some way or other.

When we place unrealistic or unnecessary expectations on

ourselves or others, inevitably we will experience disappointment,

frustration and even anger.


Do you see the problem here?

What are our expectations of others or ourselves?


The question should be:

What does LIFE expect from YOU?

Not what YOU expect from LIFE

There has been so much written about expectations but they are

not realizing or even thinking they do not know how to ask the

right question or what the right question is to ask.

Having expectations for SELF and others only brings about what

we now can say is all our diseases of modern day.

But turn the word expectations around and always and forever


What does MY Life expect from SELF?

What does Life expect from me?

Never what YOU expect from Life


What does LIFE expect from YOU?

YOU will only know what LIFE expects from YOU until you work

the book on this website and listen to the podcasts because there

is nothing on the internet or nothing in counseling that, or nothing

in any school that prepares YOU to ask the QUESTION:

What does LIFE expect from YOU?

It is the biggest question in YOUR life.

It is the biggest question in anyone’s life.


It makes you think differently.

It makes you acknowledge your uniqueness

It makes you start writing down YOUR skills, talents, intellectual

abilities, likes, dislikes, habits and all your characteristics

YOU have this time and space to do what is:

Life’s expectations of YOU.

YOU only have this time and space –

SO age Healthy and Happy and

Acknowledge and learn about WHOLE SELF so YOU can know

What LIFE expects from YOU

If you do not know YOU and all the wonderful and beautiful

characteristics of who you are; you will never get the complete

picture of:

What Life expects of YOU

Be Brave

Be courageous

It takes courage

Start today learning about SELF so you will know what



You will never get YOUR expectations from SELF or anyone of

your family or friends.  It will only cause stress, disease, and any

of the other issues you may have throughout your life if you do

not ask right question






You need to use this under utilized part of the spirit and mind.

Sometimes there are times in our life when we have difficult

situations and cannot see our way clear, the best procedure

Is to assume that infinite intelligence within your subconscious

Mind knows all and sees all, has the answer and will reveal it to

You now.  Your new mental attitude will help bring about a happy

Solution and enable you to find the answer.   Attitude of mind will

Bring order, peace, and meaning to all YOUR undertakings.

YOU are a creature of habit.



That if you have a habit it is your subconscious mind.  I would

Have known that if I had not read Dr, Murphy’s books 30 years


To expand SELF – YOU are going to have expand SELF.

To expand SELF, YOU are going to have to be here at

this website because it is the only website or only place that

wants YOU to find:


And to find out what life expects from you

YOU need to know SELF:  Mind, Body and Spirit Balanced

and keep developing and keep learning about SELF and keep

growing and expanding.

My spirit soars with forgiveness, peace and harmony and joy.

The habit of keeping your good habits on track and getting rid

of the negative habits.  It is hard to get rid of bad habits, and it

may take some considerable time to get rid of them.

Forgive yourself for whatever it is in your past.  Forgive others

for their transgression against YOU

Harmonize all of SELF – mind, body, and spirit.

But when you learn to harmonize the functions of the conscious

And sub-conscious mind the two will cooperate, and the idea or

Desire implanted in the subconscious mind is realized.







When your relaxing body is getting into a relaxed, drowsy, and

meditative state and fill your mind with the picture of the desired

end, knowing YOUR subconscious mind can bring YOUR

desires and wants into being.


Be regular, and practice and meditate in the way outlined above

and your subconscious will keep working for the rest of your


You can liken your conscious mind to a camera and that your

subconscious mind is the sensitive plate on which he registered

and impressed the picture.




YOU just need to meditate and focus and sit quietly have it

become a habit

Confidently expect to experience the picture YOU are developing

in YOUR mind.


Be there for YOU

Have an intense desire to overcome any block in your llife and

You will come to a clear-cut decision that there is a way out and

the course you wish to follow, and then victory and triumph

will be assured.






YOU and Research showing soil depletion of vitamins & nutrients


This is from scientific American:

The main culprit in the disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion:

modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing

amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows.

Each successive general of fast-growing, pest-resistant carrot is

truly less good for you than the one before


A landmark study on the topic by Donald Davis and his team of

researchers from the University of Texas(UT) at Austin’s

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry was published in

December 2004 in the Journal of the American College of

Nutrition.  They studied U.S Department of Agriculture nutritional


Data from both 195 and 1999 for 43 different vegetables and

fruits, finding “reliable declines” in the amount of protein,

calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin(vitamin B2)and vitamin c over

the past half century.  Davis and his colleagues chalk up this

declining nutritional content to the preponderance of agricultural

practices designed to improve traits,(size, growth rate, pest

resistance other than nutrition.


I am adding that since this study there has probably added items



The organic Consumers Association cites several other studies

with similar findings.  A Kushi Institute analysis of nutrient date

from 1975 to 1997 found that average calcium levels in 12 fresh

vegetables dropped 27 percent, iron levels 37%, vitamin A levels

21%, and vitamin C levels 30%.  There was a British Food Journal

also.  One study concluded that one has to eat eight oranges

today to derive the same amount of Vitamin A as our

grandparents would have gotten from ONE>

Michael Karr, Ph.D

ARCPACS Certified Professional Soil Scientist


Mineral nutrient depletion continues to be a problem in U. S. farm,

forest, and range soils.  The depletion is caused by natural

processes, such as weathering and erosion, particularly in the

sensitive soils of the southeastern United States.  More

significantly, throughout the United States, human accelerated

depletion is caused by the production of high yield crops and

livestock grazing.  Those activities cause nutrients to be removed

and organic matter to be depleted from the soil;s natural cycling

system.  Moreover, when commercial growers attempt to

replenish the soils of only some mineral nutrients by fertilization

they may exacerbate mineral nutrient imbalances.  While methods

exist to replenish the soil of its mineral nutrients there is a relative

lack of knowledge on how to identify all deficiencies and to fully

correct them.  In addition, the lack of an economic incentive to

implement long term, soil-building solutions perpetuates the

relative fragility and inconsistency of US soils nutrient supplying








Is Your energy frequency between 57 and 78?

Essential oils have the highest frequencies of any measured

Natural substance.

Emotions have frequency and so do thoughts.  Solids also have

frequency.  Those with consciousness such as humans

experience higher energy frequency states.  Humans vibrate at

the same levels.

Pure essential oils offer you natural way for harmonic wellness

at all levels (physical,emotional,mental and spiritual)  what other 1

item could do all that?  Laying the oils one after another is like

putting together and resonating in a symphony of musical notes

that is aligned with the rhythms of nature.

A higher biometric frequency encourages a body to regenerate

damaged cells, build a higher immune defense to viruses as well

as sustain energy vitality.

In a few decades’ scientists have gone from a conviction there

is no such thing as an energy field around the human body, to an

absolute certainty that it exists.  And to understand the roles of

energy fields in health and disease.  Because you are reading this

blog YOU understand that there is energy healing.


A healthy cell has a certain frequency; a healthy psyche is at the

right frequency.

We can re-balance our body frequencies – and feel good.

Our thoughts are vibrations also – we can change our perception

by changing our frequency.  Our thoughts can change our

personal world.

The following ae ways to change body frequencies and lift them

to a healthy level:

Better food, Live food, vegetables and fruits and adding nutrients.

One of the things I do is use my vita mixer and make chard juice

and add fresh ginger and turmeric with olive oil and ground


Dr. Royal Raymond Rife produced some astounding

accomplishments in medicine and biology in the 1920’s and 30

with frequencies.  First he invented a new kind of optical

microscope to observe virus in live cells and tissue culture and

invented a variable frequency flashing light ultrasound source

which could kill bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Some call it life force, others call it chi.  It is a vibration and it can

be measured.

We can try, on a daily basis, to vibrate at optimum energy

frequency state.

Negative thoughts lower our frequency by 12 MHz while positive

thoughts raise our frequency by 10 MHz


Healthy body is 62 – 78

Cold/foe           57 –  60

Cancer              42

Death                25

Below are 5 things that may help in raising YOUR frequency:

  1. Cook and eat fresh ingredients
  2. go offline as much as possible
  3. avoid drugs and toxins
  4. use therapeutic grade essential oils
  5. use the power of intention


Essential oils emit a spectrum of frequencies that come from the

bonds between elements comprising the molecules of their

compounds.  Each molecule is like a tiny stringed instrument

where the bonds between the atoms of carbon, hydrogen, and

oxygen act as strings of different pitches.

We allow our negative emotions and limiting thoughts to be in


Positive thinking is the way to go.










YOU and EMFs impact on your health and that of your children

and pets, as our overuse of electricity contributes greatly to

pollution from coal-fired electricity plants.  Those who are wise will

heed the warnings of the electrically sensitive and reduce the

EMF radiation in their homes through good design and reduction of

dependence on electric appliance.


Even if you cannot feel it, or see it, EMF –and more and more we

are into a wireless world.  So be informed and know it is having

an effect and it is accumulative.


Amir Raz, assistant professor of clinical neuroscience at

Columbia University offers the following answer about could

certain frequencies of electromagnetic waves or radiation interfere



DEFINITELY.  Radiation is energy and research findings provide

at least some information concerning how specific types may

influence biological tissue, including that of the brain.

Evidence of health effects from EMF, including their influence on

the brain, is inconclusive and the probability that EMF exposure is

a genuine health hazard is currently small. (Listed below:  Israel and

Germany have concerns) Microwave frequencies below 3,000

megahertz can penetrate the outer layers of the skin, be absorbed

into the underlying tissues, and result in all the known biological

effects of heating, including burns, cataracts, and possible death.


A few studies concluded that cell phone exposure enhanced

certain aspects of cognitive performance as measured by reaction

time and accuracy; others showed no difference, and a few,

including a very recent investigation, show that such exposure

had detrimental effects in specific contexts such as attention



Martin Blank, PhD-Department of Physiology and Cellular

Biophysics at Columbia University has a wonderful little video

about the harmful health effects of electromagnetic radiation

Can cause:

Lymphatic cancer and Bone Marrow Cancer



Alzheimer’s disease




Cell towers health effects

People that live close to cell towers can have fatigue, irritability,

a headache, nausea, appetite loss, sleep disturbance, depression

and on and on


Many home appliances create EMF:

Cordless phones,

Wireless baby monitors

Wireless routers

Wireless modems

Anything wireless


This is all from Natural News:

Ways to reduce EMF radiation in your home and life

Keep your immune system strengthened

Practice a chemical-free lifestyle

Unplug electrical appliances when not in use

Keep your bedroom, and children bedroom, free of electrical

appliances, especially near your head while you sleep

Avoid low-voltage halogen and fluorescent lighting.

Avoid use of microwave ovens, hair dryers, electric toothbrush,

electric blankets

Avoid plasma TVs

Keep computer unplugged when not in use

Avoid areas with wireless networking

Germany warns citizens to avoid using Wi-Fi

Be informed and know about EMF and use it, store, it in your

home carefully, in separate rooms from YOU and YOUR children.

YOU and Milk Thistle


Prevention should be your goal.  Prevention of cancer,

diabetes, arthritis and any disease.  The more information YOU

have on natural and organic items the better you are to maintain

healthy aging.  My goal for you is not to get any disease and the

hopes that each blog written on this website gives you information

so you will not be sick and will know the things for prevention.


Milk Thistle has been used for 2,000 years as an herbal remedy

for a variety of ailments, particularly liver, kidney and gall bladder

problems.  Several scientific studies suggest that substances in

milk thistle protect the liver from toxins, including certain drugs,

such as acetaminophen(Tylenol), which can cause liver damage

in high doses.


Milk thistle is often suggested as a treatment for alcoholic hepatitis

and alcoholic cirrhosis.  Most studies d=show milk thistle

improves liver function and increases survival in people with

cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis.


Early lapidary studies suggest that silymarin and other active

substances in milk thistle may have anti-cancer effects.  These

substances appear to:

Stop cancer cells from dividing and reproducing

Shorten the lifespan of cancer cells

Reduce blood supply to tumors

The above information if from University of Maryland Medical


Dr. Mercola website has that milk thistle anti-inflammatory effects

are among its greatest achievements, and recent research

suggest this is accomplished, in part using a two-phase process

similar to those used by other beneficial natural compounds like

curcumin and a component of green tea.


Aside from liver health and cancer protection, milk thistle also

shows promise for:

Kidney health

Heart health


Brain health

Listed below are 14 health benefits of milk thistle

Protects liver






Protects the heart

Protects from chemicals and toxins

May help prevent and treat cancer

Improves bone health

Effective milk secretor

Protects against radiation-induced lung injury

Reduces iron absorption

Inhibits fat cells


The above list is from website and it has an in-

depth explanations on each item.

Milk thistle is scientifically called Silybum marianum.  It is an annual

or biennial plant of the Asteraceae family.  Originally a native of

Southern Europe through to Asia, it now found throughout the


The following is from about milk thistle:

Functions as a therapeutic agent for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease

Improves blood sugar levels

Reduces cell damage caused by radiation and chemotherapy treatments

Supplements sunscreen protection and may be useful against multiple types of skin disease

Words as a free radical scavenger and powerful antioxidant

Reduces hot flashes and other related menopausal symptoms
