I am a mother, grandmother, published author, child advocate of wellbeing and healing and changed my water and changed my life and became all prescribed medication free in 2010. I have written many blogs on how to improve the health and wellbeing by eating God's healing plants instead of medication which had many side effects causing me to have to keep taking medications to cure what another medication was usually the cause of having to be prescribed another medication and just got sick and tired of being sick and tired and weened myself off and changed food as my medication and I feel better, have more energy, more alert. When I stopped all medications including OTC I began reading, writing and walking every day. I am presently in the process of working effortlessly to get myself off of disability and pursue my dream of traveling extensively around the world, meeting new friends, researching and anticipating more writing.

You Can See it From Worlds Away by Valerie Cheers Brown

I have written about Japan on numerous times and will continue to until heard by my society of the United States of America.

I am proud to be an American but when it comes to respecting, ethics and laws, I get pretty worried.

We repeat the same thing over and over again and it does not tend to quite sink in and as Albert Einstein’s famous quote states, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Isn’t this what we do when we show the same things over and over again on the news?

The one which really worries me is many American entrepreneurs or companies honestly do believe that the ‘Customer comes first?”

Since when did the customers come before the employees which without them, you have no customers?

Shouldn’t we be going to school all year round and even after that, learning is a lifetime process and is never assigned ages or years to complete if you ask me!

Could this perhaps be why Japan’s children are so smart?

I know they are and have been given the pleasure of studying with them at Saint Louis University and I watched them what they eat, how they eat, how they study and how they are just damn smart in so many ways we as Americans could learn many things from.

I once did a blog, many of my blogs have not even been seen before, but I know what I do and God knows is the reason they are here, on how the schools in Japan cut down on strangers being around their children and not only that, how the children are taught responsibility and they have no janitors in the schools!

Wow, what we can learn from other cultures is and/or classes in themselves some of us adults as teachers and leaders could use way before college!

Isn’t it worth bragging about something as important positives of people’s lifestyles of another culture and why they don’t have high numbers in things we in the United States are ridiculously not paying attention to it would seem on purpose?

Do we ever do or hear reports on the television on how high numbers which need to be low numbers are decreasing and people’s health care not needed because of themselves healing themselves using safe homegrown God’s green earth foods?

Isn’t something as important as one’s health or illness and disease rates going down and/or people’s health is improving something worth reporting to encourage others?

You would think with something as important as one’s health, the positive news would be more open for ears than negative news about side effects of medicines, wouldn’t you think?

Wouldn’t you think that with all the side effects advertisements that as a nation would open our eyes and open our ears and begin to do our homework on how we can take something besides medicines with side effects like perhaps, God’s green earth foods?

Let’s start bragging on how the United States health problems are improving instead of getting worse and how sickness and diseased people are improving by them changing their lifestyles or even changing their water and changing their lives? going down and/or people’s health are improving and brag about that?

We need to learn so much about Kangen water which Mr. Oshiro from Japan makes sure is used in hospitals to heal bedsores in 1-2 days!

Why is blood type important in Japan and not in the United States?

Now shall I say anymore and what does this tell you?

When do we in the United States use those words ever, “Our top story is about a medication healed somebody?

You won’t hear it!

When was the last time you heard anybody on the news saying how something healed something?

You didn’t until you heard about Kangen water?

You want to hear more, let me know?

Would this not be something worth bragging about for others countries to want to follow our lead on the news?

God is the leader of this world and we should all be following His lead and not any president, pastor, doctors or human being’s man-made prescription medication!

Well, since we won’t do it on television or on social media God has assigned and given me the job me to be the blogging blogger with good news on how we can improve some of our flaws in this country.

Don’t you get sick of hearing how bad cigarettes are for your health yet they are being sold?

What do we do about this?

Shouldn’t this be an eye opener for those who bother to open their eyes?

Did you know that good natural tobacco could heal and even help cure diseases such as Dementia or even Alzheimer’s which by the way, you don’t even have to be old to have?

I will tell you this much: Any thing that grows from the God given green earth when properly and safely taken care of takes care of your health if we allow it to and do it ourselves and gain knowledge by researching before believing what the people say in the media.

We in this country need to find things out for ourselves, help ourselves and then share that good news to the world don ‘t you think?

We in this country also should not be afraid to break rules in order for new ones to come around which honestly mean to help and improve with testimonies!

If anything helps just one, isn’t that progress?

I just want to begin a positive force which will be reckoned with by yours truly Valerie Cheers Brown.

If you like this and look forward to more positive and helpful information let me know by emailing me at valeriecheers1953@gmail.com and thank you!  Also let me know if I am being too biased and if I am and was told I was in college, please I need to know!

Please let me know if you want more and thank you so much.

Love, peace & blessings!

My one word will always be GENEROSITY!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Rich Dad Poor Dad Did For Me by Valerie Cheers Brown

My dad worked hard and made a good income working many jobs including his full-time one. My dad also had this traditional black and white mentality about life and taught me that we had to work hard and stay on that job and depend on them increasing my salary and then retire.  My dad as a result of practicing what he preached after retirement struggled financially and lived from paycheck to paycheck once a month.    I, on the other hand decided I want more and so the journey began.

I began reading Rich Dad Poor Dad while in college when I was struggling taking classes, working when I could because of being on Financial Aid and facing many outstanding student loans and just seemed like I was never going or getting anywhere and still do not have a degree due to over extending student loans and putting my life on hold for others. As soon as I read this book it made me wonder why and what have I been doing all of this time and still nowhere?   I began doing what I love doing for once in my life and that taking the risk of just writing all the time not making one dime, but what kept me going was knowing that God has something bigger for me on the other side and eventually it would pay off.  I would just write and share, share and write! Hoping to be successful real soon by not working for anybody else working for myself with motivators, team players, stakeholders, vendors, etc.

The traditional way of education, stay on a job and retirement just wasn’t enough for me and what you still end up doing after all of this working on job, saving what you can, is living from a once a month check and I deserve way more than this. So, I have begun changing my life by working my ass off until I reach my dream of become successful for the rest of my life not having to worry about where and when money will come from to do anything I chose to do when I want to do.

Listening to Rich Dad Poor Dad while in college I began making my couple time a week motivation promise to myself. I am now discovering how to make others money work for me to become a successful business owner, writer, author and motivational speaker soon.

I advise anybody who has dreams no matter how old you are to be encouraged and take a listen and get the book Rich Dad Poor Dad. I don’t want to give the premise away and would like you to read or listen for yourself.  I guarantee once you listen or read, you will be hooked and very inspired to make a change in your life, but it will take some working, dedication, diligence and perseverance on your own behalf.

The premise of Rich Dad Poor Dad was that even though the well educated biological dad had a good job being paid really good he still always struggled with debt and worrying about paying off most of his expenses. Now, who can attest to this after going to college and who doesn’t have student loans, car loans, etc.?

The rich dad was a business owner and created fortunes along the way allowing him to live comfortably and never having to worry about how or where the next money would come from.  This is what I want and since I have been working all of my life, I feel I need to work even harder when working for myself getting others to come on aboard as my business partners, stakeholders, vendors, etc.

This is where common sense comes into play and totally goes against common logic where job security and income are the way to become rich. Robert Kiyosaki in short shows how with his two dads that income alone is not everything and also saving is not saving in the long run.  It is how you can make others money work for you that is important.

The six vital lessons that I gained insight are:
(1) The well off or rich don’t work for money and focus on ways of creating residual or money that increases even if you don’t work rather than waiting for a pay increase from working a job
(2) Financial literacy and knowing how to live off of returns from investments. A poor person like myself has to live from paycheck to paycheck and when you retire it becomes even worse living and waiting on a check once a month. Increasing assets is more important than increasing your income or pay raises.
(3) Tending to your own one of a kind concerns or business by building solid assets and just because you have money does not mean you are to keep up your expenses but instead, reducing liabilities is important.  In other the rich focus on increasing the size of their investments instead what the poor does waiting on a paycheck to increase.
(4) Costs and associations by creating a corporation and in short: Rich people with corporations earn, spend and pay taxes and the poor people earn, pay taxes and spend like crazy.
(5) The rich create money and are not afraid of putting in money in places that show relative risk and this means not being afraid of investing money outside of your comfort zone.
(6) The need to work to learn and not to work for money.  Rather than essentially working for the cash and security, which are critical, accept a second job or take classes that will show you a skill.
This is what made me want to work my ass off and learn how to make others money work for me.  On account of these principle lessons, one can stroll towards the way of achievement. It just takes individual activity to additionally build up the money related learning and administration abilities essential for achievement.
As Rich Dad, Poor Dad shows advanced education or an incredible employment doesn’t ensure achievement but instead the aptitudes and learning you can apply with your pay isolates the lower and working class from the well off.
I have a vision of seeing this game being played in schools:

Facts

The Healthy Donor Effect

The term was coined from the ‘Healthy Worker Effect,” originally used in occupational medicine.

In 1885, a comparison between those who worked with those who did not, suggested that workers were the healthiest. But this was simply because it was only the fit and healthy ones that could work.

Similarly, only healthy people can donate blood, and scientists risk drawing wrong conclusions by comparing donors with non-donors.

Did you know before you give blood the body let’s us know what we may be deficient in such as iron deficiency?

We can eat foods to improve the deficiency like eating foods containing iron to replace what we are lacking.

Do not stop at, “I cannot give blood this time because I couldn’t!” What and why can’t you give blood is the problem which needs to be addressed only by yourself and we can heal thyself by eating what is needed to improve our own well-being and then are able to give blood to help yourself and save the life of somebody else too.

Why could active blood donors live longer?

There are many possible reasons that could explain why active blood donors appear to live longer, according to the new study.

Ullum is not sure that the act of donating blood itself is directly responsible.

Some people, who have too much iron in their blood, could benefit from blood donation if it helps to reduce their iron levels, he says.

But Frydenberg has other suggestions.

“Going into hospital could make you more aware that you must take care of your body,” he says, adding that there could be a number of other different explanations.

The study is published in the scientific journal Transfusion.

The question: How valuable is it to know my blood classification? What would it be able to enlighten me concerning myself?

The reply: It can be useful to know your blood classification for various reasons. How about we audit how your blood classification is resolved to comprehend why it’s vital and how it can impact your wellbeing.

Your blood classification is acquired from your folks and is dictated by two variables: the ABO gathering framework and the Rh figure. Beginning with the ABO framework, there are four blood assembles: A, B, AB and O. The kind of blood you have depends on the nearness or nonattendance of antigens and antibodies in your blood. Antigens are proteins that adhere to the surface of your red platelets, while antibodies are created in the plasma or fluid segment of the blood. The kind of antigen you have lets us know what your blood classification is. For instance, in the event that you have An antigens on your platelets, your blood classification is A. On the off chance that somebody has both An and B antigens, they are sort AB. Furthermore, on the off chance that you don’t have any antigens, your blood classification is O. For every antigen on the platelet, the inverse immune response is created in the plasma. For instance, sort B blood has hostile to sort An antibodies.

For a definite rundown with intriguing certainties about every blood classification, visit the Blood Services. Notwithstanding the ABO writing framework, your blood classification is likewise controlled by the nearness or nonattendance of another antigen known as the Rh calculate. For instance, on the off chance that you are Rh-negative and have A-sort blood, you are A-negative; in the event that you have B-sort blood and are likewise Rh-positive, you are B-positive. While there are more than 20 blood classification frameworks, ABO and Rh are the most vital ones.

The significance of knowing your blood classification is to keep the danger of you accepting an inconsistent blood classification at a desperate hour, for example, amid a blood transfusion or amid surgery. On the off chance that two distinctive blood classifications are blended, it can prompt to an amassing of platelets that can be conceivably lethal. Gratefully, preceding doing a blood transfusion, your blood classification is tried and cross-coordinated against the giver blood, which minimizes the danger of transfusion response.

Knowing your Rh blood classification is likewise essential for pregnant ladies. On the off chance that a ladies is Rh-negative and pregnant with a child who is Rh-positive, it can prompt to a condition known as Rh-inconsistency. On the off chance that the blood of the Rh-positive child blends with the mother’s, it can trigger the creation of antibodies against the infant’s blood known as Rh-sharpening. As a rule, the creation of these antibodies won’t influence the infant amid the pregnancy where sharpening happened, however, future pregnancies with Rh-positive children can prompt to a deadly result for the infant. To maintain a strategic distance from this hazard, we generally check a lady’s blood classification right on time in pregnancy. On the off chance that she is Rh-negative, she gets a shot called immunoglobulin which counteracts immunizer creation and refinement.

A standout amongst the most profitable motivations to think about your blood classification is to help other people. Blood Services are frequently searching for potential givers and will put a shout to people in general when there is a need to help other people who have been in mishaps are in disease treatment or need surgery. At times they will put out a call for particular blood classifications, so when you hear that your sort is in need, it’s your chance to move up your sleeve and give to help other people.

 

My One Word by Valerie Cheers Brown

“Generosity is the flower of justice.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne 

"Generosity is the flower of justice." (Nathaniel Hawthorne) Happy Monday!:

I would think the flower of justice is peace and/or harmony. But generosity could also be a flower. There could be many flowers associated with justice. Justice is fruitful.

One of my mentors, Evan Carmichael asked “What is your one word? ”

My one word is GENEROSITY!

You don’t have to give money to give back.

Being kind doesn’t cost a dime!

We rise by lifting others and you never know what one is going through.

You do not have to be rich to be generous.

I could go on and on in explaining my one word and it doesn’t take a whole lot to treat people exactly the way you want to be treated!

 

 

 

 

 

Generosity by Valerie Cheers Brown

GENEROSITY
BY Valerie Cheers Brown
Once upon a time, a selfish, rich investor hired a blogger. The rich investor wanted the blogger to find the best way for him to make the greatest profit in everything he did. The investor was building a huge portfolio, and his greatest dream was to fill it with inspirational and motivational stories which not only helped himself but others who read them and one day even own several publishing blogger specific companies.
 
The investor was shut away for months in his study, before finally believing he had found the best stories. But he soon found there were some errors in his judgment , and he started all over again and would keep on thinking until he felt good about what he thought the people would want to read.
 
One night he appeared at the blogger’s house, with a big smile on his face: “I found it!” he said, “I think I know what the people want!” The blogger was going on a long journey the next day, and didn’t have time to listen. He promised the investor he would listen to him when he got back. Excited by his new discovery, the investor was delighted to accept.
 
When the blogger returned, months later, he found that all of his writing was gone. Furious, he went to ask for an explanation from the investor. The investor calmly told him what he had done. He had given everything away to people. The blogger couldn’t believe it, but the investor explained it further.
 
“For months I analyzed how a blogger could gain the maximum benefit, but what I could do was always limited. There’s always a limit to how much one man can do by himself. Then I understood the key was that many people could help us to achieve the aim so this is when I thought about partnering and sharing . So the conclusion was that helping others was the best way to get more and more people to benefit us.”
 
Disappointed and furious, the blogger stormed off, desperate at having lost everything to the hare-brained schemes of a dreamer. However, while he was walking away disconsolately, several mentors ran over, worried about him. All of them had been helped when the investor shared out the blogger’s stories They felt so grateful to him that they offered him the hospitality of their publishing companies and anything such a special blogger might need. The investors even argued over who would get to help him.
 
Over the next few days, the blogger saw the full results of what the investor had envisioned. Wherever he went the blogger was received with great honor and such respect, and everyone was willing to help him in whatever way they could. He realized that his not having anything had given him much, much more.
 
In this way, he managed to quickly set up flourishing blog publishing companies, but this time he followed the brilliant mentors and investors advice. No longer did he keep his blogs hidden away or anything like it. Instead, he shared out his stories and blogs among a thousand of people and friends, whose hearts he had converted into the safest, most grateful and fruitful of stories.
 
Moral: Generosity
Main Lesson: Everything we give to others will, sooner or later, return to us, whether or not it be in a form we expected
 

A Dis ABILITY History by Valerie Cheers Brown

“My ability is stronger than my disability.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

According to Centers for Disease Control CDC: 1 in 5 American adults live with a disability in the United States.  The study, drawn from 2013 data, says 53 million Americans have a disability.

Did you know that one of our founding fathers served in 1776 despite a disability?

Stephen Hopkins, a man with cerebal palsy, is one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Hopkins is known for saying “My hands may tremble, my heart does not.”

People with disabilities were in the Olympics which were began in 1968 and just goes to show that sometimes the things we cannot change end up changing us.  “My ability is stronger than my disability.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

This information is intended to help those with and without disabilities to find out about the rich history of individuals with disabilities whom did not let them stop them from pursuing their visions.

Although planned fundamentally for those with disabilities, the knowledge can be utilized as a part of numerous approaches to instruct a more extensive gathering of people also.

Beginning in the blink of an eye before the United States was established, this information highlights case of the astounding differing qualities, innovativeness, and administration that have formed the disability group and American society.

Included is an intelligent movement for use with gatherings to exhibit societal and statutory occasions that have added to and keep on contributing to the genuine combination of individuals with disabilities in the public eye.

This information is another asset for the developing national development to have disability history known to many who just may not know about many who become way before us in history with disabilities who you just may not believe had a disability.

Please find the timeline of the disability history which gives reinterpretation beginning with the 1700’s early progress,1800’s continued progress and human rights, 1900’s modern advancements and civil rights and the 2000’s paving the way for the future progress.

To begin, simply click on the century markers below, and then the decade markers that will appear. You can also expand the entire timeline. Alternatively, you can view the PDF version of the timeline..

There is a good read called, “A Disability History of the United States by Kim E. Nielson which was the first book to cover the entirety of disability history, from pre-1492 to the present.

 

 

The Power to Be You by Valerie Cheers Brown

“We must believe that God gives to each of us a calling and when we recognize it, first and foremost we must obey Him and share it with others to help inspire and motivate yourself and them.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

I commit this work to my otherworldly higher power and ask that He manage me with each and every word to line up usefully and profitably with a mission to line honestly to please God.

Lord, you are an awesome God.

You made everything.

You made the sky and the ocean, vegetation and the area, stars, moon and the sun, ocean animals including flying creatures and the fish, humanity and creatures, and on the seventh day, You rested.

Why did God make the earth and us alongside it? He doesn’t generally require us, so why did he make anything?

Extraordinary question, and you’re not the first to ask it. Lord David asked basically the same thing:

“When I consider your sky, the work of your fingers … what is man that you are aware of him, the child of man that you watch over him?” (Psalm 8:3-4).

Why did God make us? To answer that, we have to know three things:

In the first place, and you said this in your inquiry, it wasn’t on the grounds that he required us: “The God who made the world and everything in it … is not served by human hands, as though he required anything” (Acts 17:24-25).

Also, he didn’t make us since he was forlorn. Much sooner than we were here, God as of now had “organization” with his Son and the Holy Spirit, alluded to in Genesis 1:26, “Let us make man in our own particular picture.”

What’s more, he didn’t make us since he required his sense of self-encouraged. Dislike God made us to fulfill some desire to be worshiped. God is thoroughly secure in who he is—without us.

Second, notwithstanding not requiring us, God made us at any rate, out of his awesome affection: “I have cherished you with an everlasting adoration” (Jeremiah 31:3). Yes, God cherished us before he even made us. It’s difficult to get our heads around that thought, however, it’s actual; that is the thing that “everlasting” affection implies.

God is love (1 John 4:8), and on account of that adoration and his great inventiveness, he made us so we can appreciate all that he is and all that he’s finished.

Third, God made us to satisfy his everlasting arrangement. I could compose pages and pages about this however, suffice it to say that God, in his unending knowledge, made us a piece of his endless arrangement.

What part do we play in this arrangement? All things considered, the Bible is loaded with directions for how we ought to experience our lives. In any case, here are a couple key verses to recollect:

1. “Love the Lord your God with everything that is in you and with everything that is in you and energetically” (Deuteronomy 6:5).

2. “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39).

3. “We are God’s workmanship, made in Christ Jesus to do acts of kindness, which God arranged ahead of time for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

We’re likewise part of the war amongst God and Satan, and God’s definitive arrangement to annihilation Satan. By putting our confidence in God, we can overcome Satan and his falsehoods (see Ephesians 6:10-18).

At long last, maybe the most imperative part we play in God’s endless arrangement is to go-to people to endless existence with God—through his Son Jesus Christ. The Bible calls this our “service of compromise” (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).

That is the reason we’re here. But, on the other hand, take note of that we have a decision in every one of this. At the point when God made us, he didn’t make us pawns in some grandiose chess amusement. We’re not his toy troopers. God gives us flexibility of decision.

Main concern: God may not require us, but rather we surely require him. I trust you’ve settled on the decision to put your trust totally in him—and have energizing influence in his adoring and loving unceasing plan.

Don’t just pray! Do something!

Don’t just pray for when you want something.  Pray for the good times and for the bad times as well as for thanking Him constantly for never leaving nor forsaking us.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground” (Exodus 14:15–16, NIV).

There is a time to move in faith and there is a time for prayer.

Much the same as the Israelites, we should trust God to spare us. At that point venture out in confidence to show it. Keep in mind the lesson from the Israelites: there is a period to supplicate and a period to move. There is no genuine confidence until we venture out and trust God with our own lives, regardless of the amount we implore.
 In the event that they had recently prayed or asked and never ventured out in confidence, they would have been similar to a considerable medium of Christians today.
Numerous social Christians trust the Bible with “head learning.” Yet with regards to trusting God, they are standing just on the edge of the ocean.
LOVE
Love is much like concrete and once the concrete is formed it is unmovable and stays together. Nothing can break that concrete much the way love is.  When you truly love, nothing can make you feel any other way then but to love right back.
 

‘Cause nobody else has the power to be YOU.’

 

 

Drug Interaction Checker by Valerie Cheers Brown

There is no sure evidence of drug interactions or what in the medical lingo, drug contradictions, a word I learned while studying in nursing school.

The list is so long even many pharmacist don’t know them all, but you can make sure by using a drug interaction checker.

Please find the Drug Interactor Checker below and please feel free to share this with a loved one or yourself who is taking many prescribed medications.

If you are taking herbs, prescribed medications, OTC. you have to be careful to make sure that they can be taken together.

There are so many prescribed medications which cannot EVEN be taken with grapefruit juice which can result in serious situations and/or  even death.

NOTE: It is better to make sure before taking any prescribed medications and to this you can use drug interactor checkers, nursing drug handbooks,  and Herb and Supplement Interaction Checkers:  Drug-drug interactions

In order to proceed to the above drug interactions, you must read and agree to the following terms.

Dr. Oz has great information on “The Most Common Deadly Drug Interactions.”

At least 1.3 million Americans are at risk of premature death due to taking combinations of prescription or over-the-counter drugs that can trigger dangerous interactions. Are your meds putting your life on the line? Click here for an Herb and Supplement Interaction Checker.

Here is the Medscape Multi-Drug Interaction Checker where you can insert the drug, OTC or herb supplement name to make sure it is safe to take together and with what is it okay to take with.  Here you can enter a full drug regimen and view interactions.

http://reference.medscape.com/drug-interactionchecker

There are so many nursing medicine books and you should own one if you are on prescribed medications and make sure to research any medicine which any doctor prescribes and ask questions people!

In closing, here is a very good talk by David Juurlink SMACC Chicago talk ‘Drug Interactions That Can Kill (and How to Avoid Them)’ takes us on a journey of drug interactions, case studies, and avoidance strategies.

Drug Interactions That Can Kill (and How to Avoid Them) – David Juurlink

There is a podcast here and also slides for your knowledge and I hope that I can help at least one person if not more by sharing this information.

P.S. Please take your medications as directed and from the bottle and not a pill box!

Trust in the Lord With All Your Heart by Valerie Cheers Brown

On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence
and things seem dark.
But calmly and quietly, at the same time,
something else is happening underground.
An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals
are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution.
From the inside out. From the ground up.
This is a Global operation…
A spiritual conspiracy.

There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.
You won’t see us on the T.V.
You won’t read about us in the newspaper.
You won’t hear about us on the radio.
We don’t seek any glory.
We don’t wear any uniform.
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.
Most of us work anonymously.
We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country and culture of the world.
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice.
We go undercover.
We remain behind the scenes.
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit.
But simply that the work gets done.
Occasionally we spot each other in the street.
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way.
During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs.
But behind the false storefront at night
is where the real work takes place.

Some call us the ‘Conscious Soldiers.’
We are slowly creating a new world
with the power of our minds and hearts.
We follow, with passion and joy
our orders from the Central Spiritual Intelligence.
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking:
Poems
Hugs
Music
Photography
Movies
Kind words
Smiles
Meditation and prayer
Dance

Random acts of kindness
We each express ourselves in our own unique ways
with our own unique gifts and talents.
‘Be the change you want to see in the world’
That is the motto that fills our hearts.
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place.
We know that quietly and humbly
we have the power of all the oceans combined.
Our work is slow and meticulous like the formation of mountains.
It is not even visible at first glance,
and yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved
in the centuries to come.

Love is the new religion of the 21st century.
You don’t have to be a highly educated person,
or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it.
It comes from the intelligence of the heart
embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
Nobody else can do it for you.
We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have.
All are welcome…
The door is open.

 


Why Is There So Much Evil, Pain & Suffering? by Valerie Cheers Brown

Why does God allow so much evil, pain and suffering of the world?

This is a standout amongst the most troublesome inquiries in all of philosophy. God is everlasting, unbounded, omniscient, ubiquitous, and all-powerful. Why ought to individuals (not everlasting, limitless, omniscient, inescapable, or all-powerful) hope to have the capacity to completely comprehend God’s ways? The book of Job manages this issue. God had permitted Satan to do all that he needed to Job with the exception of

God is everlasting, unbounded, omniscient, ubiquitous, and all-powerful.

Why should humans (not everlasting, limitless, omniscient, inescapable, or all-powerful) hope to have the capacity to completely comprehend God’s ways? The book of Job manages this issue.

“The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be commended” (Job 1:21). Job did not comprehend why God had permitted the things He did, yet he knew God was great and consequently kept on confiding in Him. Eventually, that ought to be our response also.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

The scriptural answer is there are no “good” individuals. The Bible makes it liberally clear that every one of us are spoiled by and contaminated with transgression (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8). Romans 3:10-18 couldn’t be clearer about the non-presence of “good” individuals: “There is nobody honest, not in any case one; there is nobody who sees, nobody who looks for God. All have dismissed, they have together gotten to be useless; there is nobody who does great, not by any means one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues

All have dismissed, they have together gotten to be useless; there is nobody who does great, not by any means one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues hone trickery. The toxin of snakes is on their lips. Their mouths are loaded with reviling and severity. Their feet are quick to shed blood; ruin and hopelessness check their ways, and the method for peace they don’t have the foggiest idea. There is no trepidation of God before their eyes.”

Every person on this planet should be tossed into damnation at this present time according to God’s word.

Consistently every second we spend alive is by the beauty & grace of God.

Indeed, even the most loathsome wretchedness we could encounter on this planet is kind contrasted with what we merit, interminable hellfire in the pool of flame.

Even though God demonstrates His love for us regardless of our sins.

A superior inquiry would be “The reason does God permit great things to happen to terrible individuals?” Romans 5:8 announces, “Yet God shows his own particular adoration for us in this: While we were still delinquents, Christ died for us.”

Despite the insidious, evil, corrupt nature of the general population of this world, God still cherishes us. He adored us enough beyond words take the punishment for our wrongdoings (Romans 6:23).

On the off chance that we get Jesus Christ as Savior (John 3:16; Romans 10:9), we will be pardoned and guaranteed an everlasting home in paradise (Romans 8:1). What we merit is hellfire. What we are given is everlasting life in paradise on the off chance that we come to Christ in confidence.

Yes, here and there awful things happen to individuals who appear to be undeserving of them. Be that as it may, God permits things to happen for His reasons, regardless of whether we comprehend them. Most importantly, notwithstanding, we should recall that God is great, simply, adoring, and kind. Regularly things transpire that we essentially can’t get it.

Be that as it may, rather than questioning God’s decency, our response ought to be to trust Him. “Trust in the LORD with everything that is in you and incline not all alone understanding; in all your ways recognize Him, and He will make your ways straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Why did God permit 9-11 to happen?

I often wondered that if God is a good God, why would 9-11 have happened?

Maybe it is to bring a greater good of this world and when we don’t come together on our own He knows how to bring us all altogether.

“It was so ironic how right after 9-11, we in this country were so divided and were a polarized country,”  one could say.

That following couple of months we were so up in heavel that we couldn’t even decide on who we wanted for president.

A few weeks later after 9-11, we were lined up giving blood.

Now, if that is not love, I don’t know what isn’t!

They even took prayer out of school and when 9-11 happened you could not even find a school where children were not praying.

I honestly do believe, people who did not believe in God believed in Him, if not but for only a second.

God knows how to get our attention, doesn’t He?

So, in conclusion, “Why would a good God cause bad things to happen to good people?”

There is trauma unfortunately which is necessary in God’s eyes to make this world a better world and come together as one!

Just like steel gets stronger with fire, God has to put us through the fire in order for us to become stronger and come together.

If you do what is easy in your life without Christ, your life will be hard.

If you do what is hard in your life with Christ, your life will be easy.

God may not come when we need Him, but we can always believe that when He comes, it is right on time!
