SPRINGTIME

... of spring season beauty of spring season beauty of spring season

Not sure how many chances each of us gets at love and happiness.  Probably only once.  But when it comes to you, you better seize it and not let it pass by.  Before it’s forever out of reach and it’s too late.

Patrick The Poet

SPRINGTIME

Among life’s desperate whims and paltry schemes
Or where passionate dreamers dream deathless dreams,
There is only one springtime of hope and love
And one chance at life to soar the stars above!

And while there are many who struggle and try
Never to see their chance at life pass them by,
There are few who ever soar the stars above
And live to find their springtime of hope and love.

For only once do the stars gleam and birds sing.
Only once is there ever a special spring!
Stronger than desperate whims and paltry schemes
Or passionate dreamers who dream deathless dreams!

So life carries on, and time is on the wing;
And though death must surely come to everything,
There is only one springtime that passes by,
And some dream of love dying to tell you why.

 

A Beautiful Torch Song‏ by Boz Scaggs

Boz Scaggs – The Essential Boz Scaggs 2CD (2013) free mp3 music ...

Dear Beautiful Music Lovers:

I hadn’t heard this song in a few years and after stumbling upon it this morning the sudden notion hit me to share it with all my friends, colleagues and clients.  If you appreciate torch songs, meaningful lyrics and haunting melody then this gem by this master songwriter-singer just might make your day.  Meanwhile, I daresay whenever someone wonders if there is a God, it’s sonic beauty like this song by Boz Scaggs that shows clear evidence to me that there is.  Enjoy.

LYRICS HERE BELOW:

Just Go (Boz Scaggs)

Take what you need
Just leave me a key and go
I’m all out of answers
Except where I don’t know

This hanging around
Is dragging us down you know
Everything changes
I guess we let it go

Take care of yourself
You’ll learn to live again
Wary but wiser in the end
Perhaps…oh well

Just go
I’m all out of answers
But yes…the answer’s no

Ooooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Ooooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Here comes old chaos
Now there’s a friend
And he’ll have us laughing in the end
But crying now

Just Go
Everything changes
Oh yes well there you go…there you go

LATEST CANCER INFORMATION

Finally, Johns Hopkins listened to me! lol

Patrick The Poet

LATEST CANCER INFORMATION
from Johns Hopkins

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

–Franz Kafka, “Aphorisms (1918)”
