The Immune System

I recently tuned into the evening news with Brian Williams (MSNBC). He reported that in a recent study it was found that people who were spiritually active had an immune system that was twice as strong, on the average. As I have mentioned in previous postings, I do believe we live on two levels, spiritually and physically… why wouldn’t it be that if we take care of both parts of our existence we as human beings could be stronger? Everyday our immune systems are bombarded with negative forces. If we are aware of these forces we then can combat the destructive elements that invade our lives. The spiritual aspects of daily existence can no longer be ignored if we are to maintain a positive, long-term outlook on life. Spirituality eventually becomes the fuel to fulfill our goals. I try to see myself as part of the human picture….I am in some way responsible, like everyone else, for what happens here. We are all, in some way, connected…one human family. If there is anything that you find valuable don’t be afraid, pass it along to others, because I do believe that everything eventually comes around again. A number of people have asked me if I am a New Age follower, a fundamentalist, or a “Bible-thumping maniac”. Unfortunately, sometimes when you try to do good you are attacked. Unfortunately, if you embrace evil, you are often looked on as a person with a strong backbone. Let’s hope it has not come to the point that goodness is looked upon as a weakness….for I am far from weak. Others along the way totally understand what it is I am trying to accomplish. I see us all as a family that is asking for guidance and looking for a way to understand why we are here. As I am a Christian, I do have love in my heart and I try in my own way to understand others who believe differently from me. To reject these principles, to me, is rejecting being Christian. Jesus understood this. Nobody is the same….we are all different. Maybe it’s time we hold out a candle to each other, and hear each other. We may be surprised.… we may be trying to accomplish the same thing. As we need food, clothing, and shelter, we also need Love, caring and Faith. As we embrace the first three things, don’t forget to understand that you also need the other three… they
may help your immune system!

Take the time to love,
