Words of wisdom from a cancer, stroke, kidney transplant survivor

I have a loved one,  who is sooooo AMAZING, that she just makes me feel humbled, amazed, greatful, inspired.. could go on 🙂  Anyway I asked her today to write me her “formula” for being the person she is.. Well an hour later I recieved some beautiful loving words from her in an email.

Below is a quote from that email.
“Here are my thoughts on living the best life you can with what you have right now.

1. Learn to accept the problems you face.
2. Always know that in this World there are people who are much worse of than you.
3. Be happy with the time you have on this Earth as you are just on a journey, until the next journey comes along.
4. Knowledge is power, knowing about what other people go through, makes you understand their situation better.
5. Meditation calms the mind and is important for peace of mind, this helped me a lot. While praying to God, I feel at peace.
6. Learning to not have too much expectations of people.
7. Life is a bunch of challenges, which you have to learn to face and overcome as they come into your life.
8. Forgive those that make you sad, only then can you move on and learn to be at peace with yourself.
9. Life improves tremendously, when you learn to accept your gains as well as your losses. An example is: I thought I would never be able to walk but I am! I never thought that I would have a kidney transplant and live a normal life, but I did. Even though the down side is long-term medications, physical exercise, weak muscle strength and no movement in my left arm for the last 20 years. I am grateful to God for giving me the strength to go on believing that one day I will have my dreams come true, whether in this life or the next. But for now, dont sweat about the unexpected.
10. Take each day as it comes, as a gift!”

p.s I have this article filed under a number of categories including pharmaceutical… because .. well, it is a long story but she reacted negatively to drugs she was given for a basic problem which caused her to go blind, have a stroke, her kidneys failed and she started to have epileptic fits as a direct result.. :-/
A few years later she had a kidney transplant. The anti-rejection drug she was given is called cyclosporin.  One of its side effects is cancer..and that is what she got 4 years ago…

Cyclosporin was isolated from the fungus Tolypocladium inflatum. Cyclosporin was first investigated as an anti-fungal antibiotic but its spectrum was too narrow to be of any clinical use. J. F. Borel discovered its immunosuppressive activity in 1976.This led to further investigations into its properties involving further immunological tests and investigations into its structure and synthesis. Cyclosporin has unwanted side effects, notably nephrotoxicity. Animal testing showed cyclosporin to be sufficiently non-toxic to begin clinical trials. These initially failed due to poor absorption of the drug. Once this had been overcome, results were encouraging enough for cyclosporin to be licensed for use in clinical practice. There is some controversy between Borel and other workers over priority in the discovery of cyclosporin and its pre-clinical development, which is examined in this review. Cyclosporin changed the face of transplantation. It decreased morbidity and enabled the routine transplantation of organs that until then had only been done experimentally.

Dr T.Simoncini states cancer is a fungus.
His book “Cancer is a fungus” describes how a fungus infection always forms the basis of every neoplastic formation, and this formation tries to spread within the whole organism without stopping.
This doctor has been rediculed for his findings yet I think he is possibly correct.. judging by cyclosporins major side effect of cancer.. it seems to tie in with this doctor’s findings?
The above info is sketchy and I would implore all to research if interested.. I have done tonnes of research on this and have my hunch/ truth.


A few thoughts on how sex is viewed in the modern world

“In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic
name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name
of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called
Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful
consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced
that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin.
Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and
of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in
liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage
suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to
literally pour himself a stiff one.

Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new
meaning to the names of cocktails, highballs and just a good
old-fashioned stiff drink. Pepsi will market
the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

(viagras real gen.name is sildenafil )

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast
implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer’s research. This means
that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky
boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.”

The above quote is from David Icke’s website… I hope you found it amusing as I certainly did..
I wanted to break the ice before I put forth my thoughts.. I may come across as a bit of a party pooper to some but I think sex is sacred and its dethroning from that platform to the gutter concerns me.

I don’t see many folks openly comfortable around the subject of this beautiful human experience in a wholistic way … And this discomfort is like a contagious disease …  Most religions, cultures and traditions have wrapped sex in so much shame and guilt that I have to congratulate humanity that it still exists.

However for the last few decades we have the other extreme, free for all sex in society’s value system and  the “entertainment” industry.

Its a way to make a few bucks fast BUT at what longterm price to the fabric of society?

The way humanity relates to sexuality speaks volumes about its state of civillization.

Hunger and sex are two big things that make todays humanity swing… not always from the chandaliers but you know … ….hunger satisfied …sex wanted… sex satisfied …hunger pangs emerge.. to and fro , to and fro….

BUT much of todays humanity is in a constant state of being unsatisfied despite all the sexual freedom (and food excesses). It can take all the mycoxafloppin …make the filthy rich pharmaceutical companies even richer but humanity is and probably will still be unsatisfied because I feel  it does not understand or wish to acknowledge the sacredness of sex.

Just as we are miseducated about food, health, reality etc. I feel  that we are ..hypnotised/miseducated about sex.

How? I hear you ask. For the purposes of profiteering, sex is sold as a purely physical thing. The miseducation/abuse starts from an early age with excessive exposure of sex and violence to our children through advertisements, television, films and other media. Humanity is continuously titilated with subliminal sexual messages 24 hours, 7 days a week. I remember once standing at a bus stop with my eldest when he was only about 7 years old. As the bus arrived there was a massive poster of a minimally clothed woman pouting away looking very sexy… my instinct was to protect his innocence and I quickly ushered him inside the bus.. I felt powerless… and I resented my childs innocence being attacked..

When a child grows up in such a society it will most likely see itself as a physical body only unless there is positive parenting of some sort.  If not it will most likely learn to experience sex as a physical thing only.  And eventually it could lead that person to be further away from their true nature,  ie spirit, mind, emotions and physical body.

The end result is pain:

in relationships with the opposite sex,

and society where rape and murders abound…

No matter how far and wide, or with how many of whatever sex, ones sexual exploits go, one will probably not find true joy. It will be no different from the rush a drug addict gets from his/her whatever fix. I imagine that is fine for some. This world is made of allsorts of people at various stages of their overall development…

Some seem to have only just stepped out of neandrathal man’s shoes and others are near sainthood. I don’t have judgement on individuals but I do have a judgement on forces that are swaying humanity to be physically more self centered/absorbed to the point of being irresponsible  in a way that is painful to the majority of humanity and this once amazingly beautiful planet. Everything has a knock on effect because everything is connected.

I have seen many women raise their kids single handedly because of this “swaying”. One such dear friend  was promised love and loyalty but abandoned as soon as she became pregnant …The friend feeling alone and lonely did her best to raise that child… Living on a few pennies she would give her self  “treats” by going to the local Fast food place once in a while..(think of a clown). The child grew up with less then ideal dietry habits and minus the love of a father.  Being the amazingly beautiful and intelligent women that she is ..she gave herself completely 100% as a parent and know her family are grown up and on their feet ..while the man has mental problems etc… not surprising… His youth has gone and no one gives him the time of day. His kids don’t want to know him as he was not around for them. Her struggle was heartbreaking to see. Unfortunately I have  many friends who have gone through that also from different social, national, cultural and religious backgrounds… It seems the norm in the Western society..

Not all women are that strong and many go under…It seems that those benefitting from the loss of our moral compass feel no remorse or responsibility.

having said that..the ultimate responsibility lies with every human and the value system we examplify and teach our children.

Looking back in history, this was done openly and cruely to the Black slaves in the Americas. When two slaves had a child the father would be sent away so he could never know his child.. He was then encouraged to produce more offspring in the same manner here there and everywhere… That is what they do to cows knowadays in factory farms so they can maximise milk and meat production. (Many have cancer, or other illness brought on by the filth and sadness they have to live in thus the pumping up with antibiotics)

So it is a shame when I see some Black brothers trying to live up to the image of being a “Stud”…and what is worst is when impressionable young men of all races and nationalities see it as “cool”.

All I see is, them doing the slavemaster’s work long after the slavemasters are dead and gone.

I wonder how many people are raising children because someone had a idea that sex and its end products come with a quick thrill and no responsibility.

From my observations, children thrive on tonnes of love from their parentS and extended family, while living in close proximity.

I would like to state here this is in NO way an attack on single parents ..it IS an observation on all of  our acceptance of a power that seems hell bent on dimming our Spiritual Identity in many different ways (including sexually) and turning the volume high on our emotional levels of  fear, anger, anxieties, jealousies, insecurities because we can’t trust the world around us..

Pain on a individual level, pain on a societal level and pain on a humanity level, is the end result of this subliminal abuse as far as I can see.

How is sex connected to humanity and this planet…. Well while we are in this intoxicated, drugged up state of slaves to physical pleasures  we can hardly heal ourselves emotionally , mentally and spiritually let alone take responsibility for the survival of humanity or this planet adequately and urgently as that is what is required if we wish for a bright future for our coming generations.

Breaking free from this mental slavery is immensely important because we need to be  free to see ourselves as wholistic beings. That is when humanity will discover the joy of life and offcourse the Joy of  Sacred Sex.


Lance Armstrong: Amazing soul, man, athlete and cancer survivor!

I have spent the last two days sitting quietly reading about this man’s incredible journey as a cancer survivor and amazing athlete.  “Every Second Counts” is the title of this book.

For me, it gives  a peep into his mindset. The steely determination is admirable and infectious. His pain, humbling..He writes with  a lot of clarity and some of his observations on life brought tears to my eyes.

I love his quote on pain:

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”

As I read the bit about him interpreting his chemo symptoms as his body killing the cancer, I was reminded that the battles of life are won and lost many times in the MIND.

Most of you may have read my aversion to chemo.. however I believe he used the side effects of chemo to win the battle in his mind.. which lead to cellular healing (imo).

I recommend this book to everyone. we can all learn from this man’s grit and determination, whether we agree or disagree with his method or politics 😉






Indian silver bangles

A beloved friend gave me the big bangles I am wearing in this photo 14 years ago.. I wear one daily to connect with her through them…

ok it may seem strange to some but it is no different to the karaa that I and most other sikhs wear on their right hand to connect with the infinite divine grace..

She is having chemo today..

I pray with all my heart it does help to heal her at a core level, and thus bring about physical healing..

The mind is very powerful if used with a laser beam style focus to bring about the result you want.

So if you believe something can heal you .. then chances are IT WILL.. She is very spiritual I think she can do it.




Be Just And Fear Not

Be Just And Fear Not

These were the words on the teacups I drank out of every morning before going to school. My father brought them from a market we (my sister and brothers) as kids called  katchra market..meaning cheap junk market. It was just an ordinary open market…..My high caste position in India was still embedded into my psyche and I looked down on the life I found myself experiencing…

I am extremely grateful for the Mantra like effect these words had on me from my early teens.


Truth…


What Is truth?

Truth to me is what one believes/has faith  to be the correct/accurate version of some thing.

This in essence is the conclusion we have drawn from our very limited

individual experience, education, miseducation of our present conscienceness.

I do not know a word to describe how miniscule our  individual

experience, education miseducation knowledge, understanding etc is of this universe or life.

Therefore our conclusions or  truths sit on very shaky foundations.

Our beliefs, philosophy are our truths,  upto the point we gain further knowledge.

Then the goal post changes.

Everyone has a right to their truth.


Quote from “Men In Black”

A person is smart. People are dumb panicky animals. Everything they’ve ever “known” has been proven to be wrong. A thousand years ago everybody knew as a fact, that the earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, they knew it was flat. Fifteen minutes ago, you knew we humans were alone on it. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.

Leonardo da Vinci:

Anyone who conducts an argument by appealing to authority is not using his intelligence; he is just using his memory.

Soren Kierkegaard:

Truth always rests with the minority, and the minority is always stronger than the majority, because the minority is generally formed by those who really have an opinion, while the strength of a majority is illusory, formed by the gangs who have no opinion—and who, therefore, in the next instant (when it is evident that the minority is the stronger) assume its opinion … while Truth again reverts to a new minority.

Buddha:

Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.

“All truth passes through 3 stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
— Arthur Schopenhauer

Nothing which is observed is unaffected by the observer

Objective observation is thus impossible

Truth does not exist as an objective reality

Individual truth exists

Ones perspective creates perception

Perception creates experience

The experience that your perception creates is what you call “truth”

Below is a verse out of a poem/song I wrote

My truth isn’t your truth

Your truth isn’t his truth

His truth isn’t her truth

Her truth isn’t their truth

Their truth isn’t our truth

Is that the truth?



COMPARTMENTALISATION

So many pigeon holes

Definitions of comatose

Boundaries all set in stone

Must not think

Past certain zones

Draw your own conclusions

Did you?

Whose thinking

Have you claimed

So you can just laze back

So it’ll be easier to blame.

Blame someone

For why you’re not strong

Blame someone

Why you can’t carry on

Point you’re Peter at someone

Who can only talk in song

In you’re pigeon holes

You place

Judge and jury

False justice reigns

You can not imprison me

You don’t know

Where to place me

Which pigeon hole

Do I fit in

You try and try

But you can’t put me in

I see confusion

In your eyes

I feel frustration

In your sighs

I see you don’t see

The love in I

I laugh, I cry

I just walk on by

Walk, walk

Out of your mind.
