Most people living in tropical countries will tell you that coconut water is one of the most delicious drinks available in their region. Coconut water is found inside green coconuts and it forms the basis of several delicious mocktails. However, most people prefer drinking coconut water fresh, as it is, because not only does it offer some fantastic benefits, it is also very tasty and quenches thirst better than the calorie-loaded sodas one is used to chugging.

This natural thirst quencher has a range of amazing benefits that will make you stop from reaching for that can of sugary drink and head straight to the tropics where you can find these in plenty.

Coconuts grow on coconut palms that are found in abundance in tropical areas such as the Caribbean, Pacific Island, Southern Asia, Florida, Hawaii and South America. The people of these places are blessed to have the coconut palm in their midst because apart from its wonderful fruit, the tree is a source of sustenance to the people in many ways. Nevertheless, we are here concerned about the benefits that coconut water offers to us. Read on and discover.
  • Hydrates the body – In summer especially, it is easy to get dehydrated and as a result, people tend to feel nausea and dizziness and a general lassitude. Drinking coconut water hydrates the body and instantly freshens you up because it contains isotonic salts that replenish the minerals and fluids that the body loses out.
In fact, athletes and those who work out regularly are also advised to drink coconut water because it is a far more superior electrolyte drink containing the right amount of minerals than any sports drink.
  • Prevents urinary problems – Drinking coconut water regularly promotes freer flow of urine and any urinary problems that usually cause major discomfort are consequently ironed out. This is because coconut water is a diuretic and increases the flow of urine. Coconut water is helpful especially for those who suffer from polyutra and stangury, some typical urinary ailments.
  • Promotes intestinal health – Most intestinal problems such as digestion or diarrhea occur because of worms in the intestine. You can easily take care of this problem by drinking coconut water with a teaspoon of olive oil for three days. The intestinal worms are killed and there is definitely improved digestion.
  • Helps in breaking kidney stones – Most people suffering from kidney stones will tell you how uncomfortable and painful it can get to pass urine if they have a stone. Drinking coconut water helps in breaking up the kidney stones so that they can pass them out more easily in their urine. Do note that the patients also need to take their regular medications as well.
  • Used for emergency blood transfusions – Odd as it sounds, coconut water is used during transfusions. How? Coconut water is almost identical to blood plasma, and this makes it easy to use for transfusions especially in emergencies. It’s also been used as the IV fluid in similar emergent cases.
  • Keeps away the big, bad diseases – If you thought that coconut water was only good for the above, it might amaze you to learn that the uses of coconut water are more lofty and varied. For instance, it contains monolaurin, which is an antiviral, antibacterial and antiprozoal monoglyceride that can kill viruses such as HIV, Herpes, flu and other pathogenic bacteria.
  • Controls vomiting – Whether it is the after effect of a hangover or as a side effect of another illness such as typhoid or malaria, coconut water helps in stabilizing the stomach and controls vomiting considerably.
  • Prevents heart burn – If you’re tired of popping antacids in your mouth after every meal because you can’t handle the acidity, try sipping on coconut water after the meal instead. Coconut water greatly reduces the acid reflux problem and controls heartburn as well.
  • The right balance – Most sports drinks that promise instant energy are often skewed up when it comes to the balancing of minerals and salts in the drinks. With coconut water however, nature’s hand is evident as it contains just the right amount of potassium, sodium, natural sugars and chloride as compared to some of the sports drinks available in the market.
  • Cosmetic uses – Some people add coconut water to their shower gels or to the bathwater directly because it softens the hair and skin as it is a moisturizer. It can also be added to conditioners or shampoos or mixed with lotion before applying. It’s also the best drink to flush out toxins and give you a wonderful glow. It’s also used as part of cleansing masks for oily skin.
  • Good during pregnancy – Some doctors advise coconut water during pregnancy so that even pregnant mothers can make use of all these benefits provided by coconut water.
It is no wonder that people living in the tropics have such healthy bodies. Easy availability of delicious and nutritious natural drink like coconut water just makes it easier.

Got this from a friend of mine, worth sharing to everyone...


Look at this lady - Let us never forget!

The world hasn't just become's always been wicked. The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving.

Irena Sendler

There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive'.

She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews (being German). Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids).


She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises. During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.

She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely.


Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.

After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.


Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.

She was not selected. President Obama won one year before becoming President for his work as a community organizer for ACORN and Al Gore won also --- for a slide show on Global Warming.



Please read the little cartoon carefully, it's powerful.

Then read the comments at the end.

...please click picture to enlarge.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated!

Now, more than ever, with Iraq , Iran , and others, claiming the HOLOCAUST to be 'a myth'. It's imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.

Health Update: CANCER



Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins:

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

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 nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day and by 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, gastrointestinal 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 the foods it needs to multiply.

  • 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 color Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
  • 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 are being starved.
  • Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat, like chicken. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
  • 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 to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including be an sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
  • 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 becomes putrefied 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 bodies 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, unforgiveness 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.

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Please share this, also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

The Meaning of Easter: The Event at Damascus and the new Knowledge of the Spirit

Rudolf Steiner
April 2, 1920
Dornach, Switzerland

Ever since the early days of Christianity it has been the custom to draw a distinction between the festivals of Christmas and of Easter in that the Christmas festival has been made immovable, having been fixed at a point of time a few days after the 21st of December, the winter solstice, whereas the day of the Easter festival is determined by a particular constellation of the stars, a constellation of the stars which unites earth and man with the worlds beyond the earth. To-morrow will be the first full moon of spring and upon this full moon will fall the rays of the springtime sun, for since the 21st of March the sun has been in the sign of spring. When, therefore, men on earth celebrate a Sunday — a day, that is, which should remind them of their connection with the sun-forces — when the Sunday comes that is the first after the full moon of spring, then is the time to keep the Easter festival. Easter is thus a movable festival. In order to determine the time of the Easter festival, note must be taken each year of the constellations in the heavens.

Principles such as these were laid down at a time when traditions of wisdom were still current among mankind, traditions that originated from ancient atavistic clairvoyant faculties and gave man a knowledge far surpassing the knowledge that present-day science can offer. And such traditions were a means for bringing to expression man's connection with the worlds beyond the earth. They always point to something of supreme importance for the evolution mankind.

The rigid point of time fixed for the Christmas festival indicates how closely that festival is bound up with the earthly, for its purpose is to remind us of the birth of the man into whom the Christ Being afterwards entered. The Easter festival, on the other hand, is intended to remind us of an event whose significance lies, not merely within the course of earth-evolution, but within the whole world-order into which man has been placed. Therefore the time of the Easter festival must not be determined by ordinary earthly conditions; it is a time that can be ascertained only when man turns his thoughts to the worlds beyond the earth. And there is deeper meaning still in this plan of a movable time for the Easter festival. It indicates how through the Christ Impulse man is to be set free from the forces of earth-evolution pure and simple. For through knowledge of that which is beyond the earth, man is to become free of the evolution of the earth, and this truth is indicated in the manner of dating the Easter festival. It contains a call to man to lift himself up to the worlds beyond the earth; it contains a promise to man that in the course of world-history it shall be possible for him, through the working of the Christ Impulse, to become free of earthly conditions.

To understand all that is implied in this manner of dating the Easter festival, it will be helpful to turn our minds to early secrets of the beginnings of Christianity, to some of those early mysteries which during a certain period of earthly evolution have become more and more veiled and hidden from the materialistic view of the world which arose at the beginning of the Fifth Post-Atlantean epoch and must now be vanquished and superseded. In order to see the whole matter in a true light it will be necessary first of all to consider the part played by the figure of St. Paul in the evolution of the Christ Impulse within the whole history of mankind.

We should indeed remind ourselves again and again what a great event in the evolution of Christianity was the appearance of the figure of St. Paul Paul had had abundant opportunity to inform himself, by external observation, of the events in Palestine that were associated with the personality of Jesus. All that came to his notice in this way in the physical world left Paul unconvinced; when these events in Palestine had come to an end in the physical sense, Paul was still an antagonist of Christianity. He became the Apostle of the Christians only after the event at Damascus, after he had experienced the very Being of the Christ in an extra-earthly, supersensible manner. Thus Paul was a man who could not be persuaded of the meaning of the Christ Impulse by evidence of the physical senses, but who could be convinced only by a supersensible experience. And the supersensible experience that came to him cut deeply into his life — so deeply indeed, that from that moment he became another man. Nay, more: he became an initiate.

Paul was well prepared for such an experience. He was thoroughly acquainted with the secrets of the religion of the Jews; he was familiar with their knowledge and their conception of the world. He was thus well equipped to judge of the nature of the event that befell him at Damascus and to have a right view and understanding of it. The writings of Paul, as we know them, convey only a weak reflection of all that he experienced inwardly. But even so, when he speaks of the event of Damascus we can discern that he speaks as one who through this event attained knowledge of cosmic happenings lying behind the veil of the world of sense. From the very manner in which he speaks it is plain that he is fully able to understand the difference between the supersensible world and the world of sense.

When, even externally, we compare the life of Paul with the earthly experience of Christ Jesus, we discover a strange and astounding fact which becomes intelligible to us only when with the help of spiritual science. We are able to survey the whole evolution of mankind. I have often drawn attention to the great difference in the development of the human soul in the several epochs. I have shown you how man has changed in the course of evolution through the Indian, Persian, Egypto-Chaldean, Greco-Latin epochs, on to our own time. When we look back into the ancient past we find that man remained capable of organic physical development until an advanced age. The parallelism between the development of the soul and the development of the body continued until an advanced age; it is a parallelism that we can recognise now only in the three stages marked by the change of teeth, puberty and the beginning of the twenties. As far as outward appearance goes, mankind has lost the experience of such transitions in later life. In very ancient Indian times, however, men experienced a parallelism between the development of soul and of body up to the fiftieth year of life, in Persian and Egyptian times up to the fortieth year, and in Greco-Latin times up to the thirty-fifth year. In ordinary consciousness, we experience a like parallelism only up to the twenty-seventh year and it is not easy to detect even for so long as that. Now the Christ Impulse entered into the evolution of mankind at a time when men — especially those of the Greek and Latin races — experienced this parallelism as late as into the thirtieth year. And Christ Jesus lived His days of physical earthly life for just so long as the duration of the span of life which ran in a parallelism between the physical organisation and the organisation of soul and spirit. Then, in relation to earthly life, He passed through the gate of death.What this passage through the gate of death means can be understood only from the point of view of spiritual science; it can be understood only when we are able to look into supersensible worlds. For the passage through the gate of death is not an event that can be grasped by any thinking concerned entirely with the world of sense.

As physical man, Paul was of about the same age as Christ Jesus Himself. The time that Christ Jesus spent in His work on earth, Paul spent as an anti-Christian. And the second half of his life was determined entirely by what came to him from supersensible experiences. In this second half of his life he had supersensible experience of what men at that time could no longer receive in the second half of life through sense-experience, because the parallelism between soul-and-spirit development and physical development was not experienced beyond the thirty-fifth year of life. And the Event of Golgotha came before Paul in such a way that he received, by direct illumination, the understanding once possessed by men in an atavistic way through primeval wisdom, and which they can now again acquire through spiritual science. This understanding came to Paul in order that he might be the one to arouse in men a realisation of what had happened for mankind through the working of the Christ Impulse.

For about the same length of time that Christ had walked the earth, did Paul continue to live upon earth — that is, until about his sixty-seventh or sixty-eighth year. This time was spent in carrying the teaching of Christianity into earth-evolution. The parallelism between the life of Christ Jesus and the life of Paul is a remarkable one. The life of Christ Jesus was completely filled with the presence and Being of the Christ. Paul had such a strong after-experience (acquired through Initiation) of this event, that he was able to be the one to bring to mankind true and fitting ideas about Christianity — and to do so for a period of time corresponding very nearly to that of the life of Christ Jesus on earth. There is a great deal to be learned from a study of the connection between the life lived by Christ Jesus for the sake of the earthly evolution of mankind, and the teaching given by Paul concerning the Christ Being. To see this connection aright would mean a very great deal for us; only it is necessary to realise that the connection is a direct result of the supersensible experience undergone by Paul. [Rudolf Steiner here considers the "Christ Being" to be the spiritual being who entered the body of Jesus of Nazareth during the Baptism in the Jordan; and "Christ Jesus" to be Jesus of Nazareth plus the Christ Being. Ed.]

When modern theology goes so far as to explain the event at Damascus as a kind of illusion, as a kind of hallucination, then it is only a proof that in our day even theology has succumbed to materialism. Even theology has no longer any knowledge of the nature of the supersensible world, and entirely fails to recognise man's need to understand the supersensible world before he can have any true comprehension of Christianity.

It is good that we should confess today, in all sincerity, how difficult it is to find our way into the ideas presented in the Gospels and in the Epistles of Paul — ideas that are so totally different from those to which we are accustomed. For the most part we have ceased to concern ourselves at all with such ideas. But it is a fact that a person who is completely given up to the habits and ways of thought of the present day, is far from being able to form the right ideas when he reads the words of Paul. Many present-day theologians put a materialistic interpretation upon the event of Damascus, even trying to disprove and deny the actual Resurrection of Christ Jesus — while professing at the same time to be true Christians. Such persons themselves bear testimony that they have no intention of applying knowledge of the supersensible to the essence of Christianity or to the event of the appearance of Christ Jesus in earthly evolution. The very fact that the figure of Paul stands at the summit of Christian tradition, the figure, that is, of one who acquired an understanding of Christianity through supersensible experience, is like a challenge to man to possess himself of supersensible knowledge. It is like a declaration that Christianity cannot possibly be comprehended without having recourse to knowledge that has its source in the supersensible. It is essential that we should see in Paul a man who had been initiated into supersensible, cosmic happenings; it is essential to see in this light what he laboured so hard to bring to mankind. Let us try in the language of the present day to place before our minds one of the things that seemed to Paul, as an initiate, to be of particular significance.

Paul regarded it of supreme importance to make clear to men how through the Christ Impulse an entirely new way of relating themselves to cosmic evolution had come to them. He felt it essential to declare: that that period of the evolution of the world which carried within it the experiences of the heathen of older times, had run its course; it was finished for man. New experiences were now here for the human soul; they needed only to be perceived.

When Paul spoke in this way, he was pointing to the mighty Event which made such a deep incision into the evolution of man on earth; and indeed if we would understand history as it truly is, we must come back again and again to this Event. If we look back into pre-Christian times, and especially into those times which possess to a striking degree the characteristic qualities of pre-Christian life, we can feel how different was the whole outlook of men in those days. Not that a complete change took place in a single moment; nevertheless the Event of Golgotha did bring about an absolute separation of one phase in the evolution of mankind from another. The Event of Golgotha came at the end of a period of evolution during which men beheld, together with the world of the senses, also the spiritual. Incredible as it may appear to modern man it is a fact that in pre-Christian times men saw, together with the sense-perceptible, a spiritual reality. They did not see merely trees, or merely plants, but together with the trees, and together with the plants they saw something spiritual. But as the time of the Event of Golgotha drew near, the civilisation that bore within it this power of vision was coming to an end. Something completely new was now to enter into the evolution of mankind. As long as man beholds the spiritual in the physical things all around him, he cannot have a consciousness which allows the impulse of freedom to quicken within it. The birth of the impulse of freedom is necessarily accompanied by a loss of this vision; man has to find himself deserted by the divine and spiritual when he looks out upon the external world. The impulse of freedom inevitably implies that, if man would again have vision of the spiritual, he must exert himself inwardly and draw it forth from the depths of his own soul.

This is what Paul wanted to reveal. He told how in ancient times, when men were only the race of Adam, they had no need to draw forth an active experience from the depths of their own being before they could behold the divine and spiritual. The divine and spiritual came to them in elemental form, with everything that lived in the air and on earth. But mankind had gradually to lose this living communion with the divine and spiritual in all the phenomena of the world of sense. A time had to come when man must perforce lift himself up to the divine and spiritual by an active strengthening of his own inner life. He had to learn to understand the words: “My kingdom is not of this world.” He was not to be allowed to go on receiving a divine and spiritual reality that came forth to meet him from all sense-phenomena He had to find the way to a divine and spiritual kingdom that could be reached only by inward struggle and inward development.

People interpret Paul today in such a trivial manner! Again and again they show an inclination to translate what he said into the language of this materialistic age. So trivial is their interpretation of him that one is liable to be dubbed fantastic when one puts forward such a view as the following concerning the content of his message. And yet it is absolutely true.

Paul saw what a great crisis it was for the world that the ancient vision, which was at one and the same time a sense-vision and a spiritual vision, was fading away and disappearing, and that another vision of the spiritual was now to dawn for man in a new kingdom of light, [Romans 13:12] a vision which he must acquire for himself by his own inner initiative, and which is not immediately present for him in the vision of the senses. Paul knew from his own supersensible experience in initiation that ever since the Resurrection Christ Jesus has been united with earth-evolution. But he also knew that, although Christ Jesus is present, He can be found by man only through the awakening of an inner power of vision, not through any mere beholding with the senses. Should anyone think he can reach the Christ with the mere vision of the senses, Paul knew that he must be giving himself up to delusions, he must be mistaking some demon for the Christ.

This was what Paul was continually emphasising to those of his hearers who were able to understand it: that the old spiritual vision brings no approach to Christ, that with this old vision one can only mistake some elemental being for the Christ. Therefore Paul exerted all his power to bring men out of the habit of looking to the spirits of air and of earth. [Gal. 4:3,9] In earlier times men had been familiar with elemental spirits, and necessarily so, for in those times they still possessed atavistic faculties with which to behold them. But now these faculties could not rightly be possessed by man. On the other hand, Paul never wearied of exhorting people to develop within themselves a force whereby they might learn to understand what it was that had taken place, namely, an entirely new impulse, an entirely new Being had entered earth-evolution. “Christ will come again to you,” he said, “if you will only find the way out of your purely physical vision of the earth. Christ will come again to you, for He is here. Through the working of the Event of Golgotha, He is here. But you must find Him; He must come again for you.”

This is what Paul proclaimed, and in a language which at the time had quite another spiritual ring than has the mere echo left us in our translation. It sounded quite different then. Paul sought continually to awaken in man the conviction that if he would understand Christ, he must develop a new kind of vision; the vision that suffices for the world of sense is not enough. today, mankind has only come so far as to speak of the contrast between an external, sense-derived science, and faith. Modern theology is ready to admit of the former that it is complicated, that it is real and objective, that it requires to be learned; of faith it will allow no such thing. It is repeatedly emphasised that faith ought to make appeal to what is utterly childlike in man, to that in man which does not need to be learned.

Such is the attitude of mind which rejects the event of Damascus as unreal, preferring to regard it as a kind of hallucination that befell Paul. If, however, the event of Damascus was a mere hallucination — or I might just as well say, if the event of Damascus was what a great number of modern theologians would have it to be — then we ought also to have the courage to say: Away with Christianity! For Christianity has brought with it a belief that is absurd and senseless.

This would be the necessary outcome of the teaching of modern theology, if only people took it — first of all, seriously, and secondly, with courage. As a matter of fact they do neither. They shrink from having nothing but a merely external, sense-given science, and yet at the same time they deny the real, inner impulse of the event of Damascus, while still professing to hold fast to Christianity! It is precisely in such things that the soul-and-spirit sickness of our age comes to clearest expression; for a deep inner lack of truth is here laid bare. Truth would be obliged to confess: Either the event of Damascus was a reality, an event that can be placed in the realm of reality, then Christianity has meaning; or it was what it is asserted to be by modern theology, which wants always to associate itself with modern science; then Christianity has no meaning. It is important that people should face such conclusions, for there is no doubt we live in an age of severe testing. Through man's becoming inwardly untrue in regard to the very matters that are most sacred for him — for he ought no longer to call what he has, ‘Christianity’ — through this, a tendency to untruth, often unconscious but no less destructive on that account, has taken hold of mankind. That is the real reason for the existence of this tendency. That is why this tendency to untruth is so closely interwoven with the events that will inevitably lead to decadence in the whole cultural life of Europe, unless people rethink these things in time and turn to spiritual knowledge.

And if we would turn to spiritual knowledge, it is emphatically not enough to rest content with looking at life in any superficial way; it is absolutely essential for us to take things in all their depth of meaning and to be ready to contemplate the necessity of mighty changes in our own time.

Again and again we must ask: What is a festival such as that of Easter for the greater part of mankind? It may be said of very many people that when they are in the circle of their friends who still want to gather together to keep the festival, all their thinking about Easter runs along the lines of old habits of thought; they use the old words, they go on uttering them more or less automatically, they make the same renunciation in the same formula to which they have long been accustomed. But have we any right today to utter this renunciation, when we can observe on every hand a distinct unwillingness to take part in the great change that is so necessary in our own time? Are we justified in using the words of Paul: “Not I, but Christ in me!” when we show so little inclination to examine into what it is that has brought such great unhappiness to mankind in the modern age? Should it not go together with the Easter festival that we set out to gain a clear idea of the destiny that has befallen mankind and of what it is that alone can lead us out of the catastrophe — namely, supersensible knowledge? If the Easter festival, whose whole significance depends upon supersensible knowledge — for knowledge of the senses can never explain the Resurrection of Christ Jesus — if this Easter festival is to be taken seriously, is it not essential that people should consider how a supersensible character can be brought again into the human faculty of knowledge? Should not this be the thought that rises up in our minds today: All the lying and deception in modern culture is due to the fact that we ourselves are no longer in earnest about what we recognise as the sacred festivals of the year?

We keep Easter, the festival of Resurrection, but in our materialistic outlook we have long ago ceased caring whether or not we have a real understanding of the Resurrection. We set ourselves at enmity with the truth and we try to find all manner of ingenious ways of accepting the cosmic jest — for indeed it would be, or rather it is a jest that man should keep the festival of the Resurrection and at the same time put his whole faith in modern science which obviously can never make appeal to such a Resurrection. Materialism and the keeping of Easter — these are two things that cannot possibly belong together; they cannot possibly exist side by side. And the materialism of modern theology — that too is incompatible with the Easter festival. In our own time a book entitled “The Essence of Christianity” has been written by an eminent theologian of Central Europe, and is accounted of outstanding importance. Yet throughout this work we find evidence of a desire not to take seriously the fact of the Resurrection of Christ Jesus. There you have a true symptom of the times!

People must learn to feel these things deeply in their hearts. We shall never find a way out of our present troubles unless we develop understanding of the enmity cherished by the modern materialistically minded man towards the truth, unless we learn to see through things like this, for they are of very great significance in life today.

During the Fifth Post-Atlantean epoch a new tendency has been at work, a tendency towards a scientific knowledge that is adapted to the power of human reason and judgment; and now it is time that this should go further and develop into a knowledge of the supersensible world. For the Event of Golgotha is an event that falls absolutely within the supersensible world. And the event of Damascus, as Paul experienced it, is an event that can be understood only out of supersensible ideas. On the understanding of this event depends whether one can in very truth feel something of the Christ Impulse, or whether one cannot. The man of the present day is faced with a severe test when he asks himself: In the time that has been christened ‘Easter,’ how do I stand to supersensible knowledge? For Easter should remind him, by the very way its date is determined, to look up from the earthly to what is beyond the earth. The man of modern times has left himself no more insight into what is beyond the earth than at most that which is given him in mathematics and mechanics, and now in spectro-analysis. These sciences are the groundwork upon which he tries to build up his knowledge concerning all that is beyond the earth. He no longer feels that he is himself united with those worlds, and that the Christ descended thence when He entered into the personality of Jesus.

Let me beg you to give these thoughts, which are so pertinent to our present problems, your full and earnest attention. I have often pointed out what a fine spiritual nature such as Herman Grimm must needs think of the Kant-Laplace theory. It is true, the theory has undergone some modification in our day, nevertheless in all essentials it is still the prevailing theory of the universe. It is said that the solar system has come out of a primeval nebula, and in course of mighty changes undergone by the nebula and its densifications, plants, animals and also man have come into being. And carrying the theory further, a time will come when everything on the earth will have found its grave and when ideals and works of culture will no longer send their voice out into the universe, when the earth itself will fall like a bit of slag into the sun; and then, in a still later time, the sun will burn itself out and be scattered in the All, not merely burying, but annihilating everything that is now being made and done by man.

Such a view of the ordering of the world must inevitably arise in a time when man wants to grasp that which is beyond the earth with mathematical and mechanical knowledge alone. In a world in which he merely calculates or investigates qualities of the sun with the spectroscope — in such a world we shall never find the realm whence Christ came down to unite Himself with the life of the earth! There are people today who, because they cannot get clarity into their thoughts, prefer not to let themselves be troubled with thinking at all, and go on repeating the words they have learned from the Gospels and from the Epistles of St. Paul, simply repeating by rote what they have learned, never stopping to think whether it is compatible with the view of the evolution of the earth and man that they acquire elsewhere. But that is the deep inward untruth of our time: men slink away into some comfortable dark corner instead of bringing together in their thought the things that essentially belong together. They want to raise a mist before their eyes so that they may not need to ‘think together’ the things that belong together. They raise a mist before their eyes when they keep a festival like Easter and are at the same time very far indeed from forming any true idea of the Resurrection of which they speak; for a true idea of it can only be formed with spiritual and super-sensible knowledge.

The only possible way in these days for man to unite a right feeling with Easter is for him to direct his thought in this connection to the world-catastrophe of his own time. For in very deed a world-catastrophe is upon us. I do not mean merely the catastrophe that happened in the recent years of the war, but I refer to that world-catastrophe which consists in the fact that men have lost all idea of the connection of the earthly with that which is beyond the earth. The time has come when man must realise with full and clear consciousness that supersensible knowledge has now to arise out of the grave of the materialistic outlook. For together with supersensible knowledge will arise the knowledge of Christ Jesus. In point of fact, man has no other symbol that fits the Easter festival than this — that mankind has brought upon itself the doom of being crucified upon the cross of its own materialism. But man must do something himself before there arises from the grave of human materialism all that can come from supersensible knowledge.

The very striving after supersensible knowledge is itself an Easter deed, it is something which gives man the right once more to keep Easter. Look up to the full moon and feel how the full moon is connected with man in its phenomena, and how the reflection of the sun is connected with the moon, and then meditate on the need today to go in search of a true self-knowledge which can show forth man as a reflection of the supersensible. If man knows himself to be a reflection of the supersensible, if he recognises how he is formed and constituted out of the supersensible, then he will also find the way to come to the supersensible. At bottom, it is arrogance and pride that find expression in the materialistic view of the world. It is human pride, manifesting in a strange way! Man does not want to be a reflection of the divine and spiritual, he wants to be merely the highest of the animals. There he is the highest. But the point is, among what sort of beings is he the highest? This pride leads man to recognise nothing beyond himself. If the natural scientific outlook on the world were to be true to itself, it would have the mission of impressing this fact again and again upon man: You are the highest of all the beings of which you can form an idea. The ultimate consequences of the point of view that sets out to be strictly scientific, are such as to make a man turn pale when they show him on what kind of moral groundwork they are based — all unconscious though he may be of it. The truth is, we are today living in a time when Christ Jesus is being crucified in a very special sense. He is being put to death in the field of knowledge. And until men come to see how the present way of knowledge, clinging as it does to the senses and to them alone, is nothing but a grave of knowledge out of which a resurrection must take place — until they see this, they will not be able to lift themselves up to experiences in thought and feeling that partake of a true Easter character.

This is the thought that we should carry in our hearts and minds today. We still have with us the tradition of an Easter festival that is supposed to be celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring. The tradition we have, but the right to celebrate such a festival — that we have not, who live in present-day civilisation.

How can we acquire this right again? We must take the thought of Christ Jesus lying in the grave, of Christ Jesus Who at Easter time vanquishes the stone that has been rolled over His grave — we must take this thought and unite it with the other thought which I have indicated. For the soul of man should feel the purely external, mechanistic knowledge like a tombstone rolled upon him; and he must exert himself to overcome the pressure of this knowledge, he must find the possibility, not to make confession of his faith in the words: “Not I, but the fully developed animal in me,” but to have the right to say: “Not I, but Christ in me.”

It is related of a learned English scientist [T.H. Huxley] that he said he would rather believe that he had by his own power worked his way up little by little from the ape stage to his present height as man, than that he had descended from a once ‘divine’ height, as his opponent, who could not give credence to the ideas of natural science, appeared to have done.

Such things only serve to show how urgent it is to find the way from the confession of faith: “Not I, but the fully developed animal in me,” to that other confession of faith: “Not I, but Christ in me.” We must strive to understand this words of Paul. Not until then will it be possible for the true Easter message to rise up from the depths of our hearts and souls and enter into our consciousness.

Do you feel listless and tired all day? Do you want to boost your energy levels each morning so that you can jump out of bed and go to work feeling all perked up? Lack of energy is one of the most common complaints that people have as it affects all of us some time or the other. Low energy levels contribute to low productivity and this naturally has its own widespread effects. If you feel that you need more energy, then you obviously have to eat the things that can give you energy throughout the day.

It’s a common misconception that sugar gives energy, but researchers have proved this wrong. Sugary foods can give you an instant high, but there is the tendency to crash soon as well, which only makes it worse- and we all know that sugary foods are extremely high in calories and can contribute to plenty of weight gain if you’re not careful.

Here’s a list of some foods that you might want to try if you want to push up your energy levels so you can accomplish more without getting tired:

Oatmeal – Switch to oatmeal for breakfast as it fuels your body for the day’s activities. Oatmeal has a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers and it pumps up your body with energy. It’s also highly recommended because it doesn’t contain sugar, which often leads people to great highs and subsequent crashes thereafter.

Marine Phytoplankton – This amazing green algae is full of Omega 3 fatty acids which are excellent source of energy as well. These improve your cardiovascular health and also boost your energy levels significantly. We found that best source of marine phytoplankton is Ocean’s Alive

Lean chicken – Lean chicken contains tyrosine, an amino acid that helps you remain bright and alert. It also provides sufficient energy to sustain you through your activities. Opt for lean chicken in your salads and sandwiches and watch how your energy levels change.

Cacao – As surprising as it sounds, cacao (chocolate, preferably raw) can also provide a quick burst of energy because it has two stimulants, caffeine and theobromine. Both these stimulants help in providing energy to the body. Of course, despite this good news, chocolate should be taken only in moderation as an excess of the same could have its own set of drawbacks.

Berries – Berries such as blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries are not only tasty, but are also known for the antioxidants and vitamin C they contain. Berries help in fighting aging and prevent various diseases from occurring. Berries also boost your energy, especially during breakfast when you eat them with cereal.

Bananas – Bananas are high in potassium and also have vitamin B6 and vitamin C and they have the right balance of these nutrients which help you fight fatigue. Bananas are also rich in carbohydrates, so avoid them if you are on a low carb diet because that could totally go haywire if you eat too many.

Lentils – Lentils are high fiber foods that contain plenty of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and iron. They help in maintaining sugar levels in the blood and prevent them from rising highly after meals without affecting the energy levels. Red beans, lima beans, and kidney beans are excellent sources of protein too, and this is especially important if you’re going to keep red meat away from your diet.

Yogurt – Yogurt has vitamin B which helps in converting other nutrients to energy in your body. However, excessive yogurt consumption could lead to weight gain because of its fat content.

Seeds – The next time you feel low and are about to reach out for a Snickers bar, stop and reach out for some seeds instead. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds are excellent snacks for those times when you want to munch on something but also need an energy lift. Watch out for those that are excessively salted and opt for health bars that contain these seeds as they up your nutrition quotient several times over.

Water – You need to drink sufficient water to make sure that your body’s energy needs are met completely. Without water, your body cannot digest food or transport nutrients. Water also helps in regulating your body temperature. When there isn’t enough water in your body, you get tired soon because your cells aren’t getting enough energy. If drinking plain old water sounds boring to you, you could also try sports drinks, herbal teas, and unsweetened fruit juices.

We constantly need energy throughout the day for different activities. However, because of our lifestyles, we tend to eat the wrong types of foods that do nothing to help us meet our energy requirements. Switch to the above mentioned foods and notice the change in your energy levels immediately.

Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive
(Directive 2004/24/EC)


  • The Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD) exists as a sub-Directive of the Human Medicinal Products Directive (2001/83/EC, amended by 2004/24/EC). This Directive essentially offers a simplified (‘fast-track’) medicinal licensing scheme for herbal medicinal products that are able to demonstrate, using a bibliographic review of safety data together with an expert report, 30 years continuous safe sage, of which at least 15 are within the EU (Article 16(c)1(c)).
  • This simplified scheme avoids the need to demonstrate safety and efficacy, which are typically the most costly aspects of applying for a full medicinal license (market authorization).
  • Applications for a THMPD license are made via particular Member States, with data being considered by the Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products (HMPC) of the European Medicines Agency (EMEA), which has also been given responsibility to establish monographs for herbal substances. ( At the time of writing, 22 monographs are complete, around 100 have been submitted and not more than a total of between 200-300 are expected.
  • Licensed THMPD products are intended for use without the supervision of a medical practitioner for diagnostic purposes or for prescription or monitoring of treatment. This creates a major constraint since many traditional medicinal products are typically used in conjunction with advice by a practitioner, for minor but also for more serious ailments, including cancer, psychiatric diseases, infectious diseases (e.g., hepatitis, influenza), cardiovascular diseases or metabolic diseases such as diabetes, none of which would be acceptable by the licensing authority.
  1. Cost of compiling a dossier and applying for a license. SMEs generally manufacture or sell a diverse range of products, each with relatively small turnover, as compared with large corporations, which are typically reliant on fewer products, each with high sales volumes. High costs for licensing therefore impact SMEs disproportionately compared with large corporations;
  2. The requirement by the HMPC for high quality genotoxic data. For many herbal substances used in traditional cultures these data are not available, while in others they are viewed as being of insufficient quality by HMPC/EMEA. This requirement has been one of the major reasons for the small number of applications to the registration scheme (around 110 in total from 25 Member States, at the time of writing);
  3. The requirement to meet pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), which considerably exceed the standards for food manufacture and are sometimes inappropriate for certain categories of ingredient or product (e.g., some botanicals). Additionally, manufacturers are required to retain the services of a ‘Qualified Person’ to ensure compliance with pharmaceutical standards;
  4. Difficulty in compliance with the pharmaceutical criteria stipulated under the Directive, which, for example, require identification of marker compounds in order to meet stability requirements. While these criteria can be met in the case of single or two herb combinations, they cannot generally be met in the case of poly-herbal products which are typical of many traditional medicinal cultures;
  5. Many traditional cultures utilize non-herbal products, including in particular ingredients of animal origin and minerals. These are presently disallowed by the Directive.

  • The European Commission has published an important report entitled ‘Report on the experience acquired as a result of the application of the provisions of Chapter 2a of Directive 2001/83/EC, as amended by Directive 2004/24/EC, on specific provisions applicable to traditional herbal medicinal product’ on 29 September 2008 ( The report recognizes some of the difficulties that companies have had with the registration scheme, but indicates there is likely to be little future flexibility with regard to altering the provisions, with the primary exception of expanding the scope to include non-herbal substances. More hopeful, however, is the conclusion by the Commission that a new legal framework may be considered for particular traditional medical systems, e.g., Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, anthroposophic medicine, etc.

Key Concerns

  1. Discrimination against non-European Herbal Traditions by requiring at least 15 out of 30 years of usage within the EU, as the basis for proving long established, traditional usage. The basis for this requirement is the supposedly varying pharmavigilance standards in different regions, implying that standards outside of Europe may be lower than those within Europe. This provision seriously disadvantages Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, South-East Asian, Tibetan, Amazonian and southern African traditions, which are among the longest and most developed botanically-based healthcare traditions worldwide.
  2. Particular combinations of herbal products may be disallowed. ‘Traditional use’ under the THMPD is based on use of an individual herb or specific combination of herbs. It therefore prevents use of new or innovative combinations that might be supported by emerging science. An amendment to remedy this constraint is under consideration by the European Commission, but will require the support of the European Parliament.
  3. Products are subject to pharmaceutical criteria and GMPs. Under the THMPD, manufacturers must meet pharmaceutical GMPs, including stringent purity, stability and genotoxicity criteria that are identical to those used for conventional pharmaceuticals, under the provisions of the same base Directive (2001/83/EC). These criteria cannot be met in the case of many poly-herbal products owing to the complexity of mixtures, the masking of known markers and, in other cases, the lack of standards for identification of markers.
  4. Traditional medicines are eligible for registration only if they are intended for minor ailments, while traditional medical systems generally have developed to cater for the full range of ailments and diseases encountered in their indigenous environments. Accordingly, the registration scheme may be discriminatory against ethnic minorities within the EU who might wish to benefit from products associated with their traditional medical system. While food supplements are able to be sold legally within the EU containing ingredients that support the health (or reduce the disease risk) of, for example, cardiovascular or neurological systems, these are disallowed under the THMPD scheme.
  5. Excessive cost of accessing the THMPD regime. The cost of meeting the data requirements for the THMPD, including the assembly of dossiers of bibliographic and expert evidence, as well as the requirements for genotoxicity data (which typically have to be commissioned as existing data are not available) is prohibitive for many SMEs.
  6. Herbal Products containing significant levels of vitamins and minerals will be prohibited, and allowed only if the action of those nutrients is considered ‘ancillary’ to that of the herbal ingredients.
  7. Herbal products containing non-herbal ingredients other than vitamins and minerals are currently disallowed. However, the Directive may in the future be amended to allow such ingredients, although verifying their safety to the satisfaction of the HMPC is likely to be challenging and very expensive.
  8. Increased cost to consumer and restriction of freedom of choice given that significant compliance costs will apply, which will be passed on to the end-user, making the cost of products uneconomic for some and limiting their right to make their own health choice.
  9. Committee control. Authorisations are controlled by the HMPC, which is weighted strongly towards drug pharmacologists/cognosists, as opposed to practicing medical herbalists and others with specific expertise on traditional medical practices.
  10. Impact on non-European herbal suppliers. Many herbs potentially eligible under the THMPD scheme are hand-collected or produced by small holder farmers and communities in non-EU countries. If products containing such herbs are disallowed as botanical containing food supplements, and are also unable to be licenced under the THMPD scheme, these rural communities could be impacted very seriously.

March 29, 2011
Message received through Parvati

"Now, all of you must take Agnihotra Ash every day, at least three times a day. If you are able to add Agnihotra Ash to your water supply, to your well or at least to your drinking water, do that regularly.

Radiation particles travel and they do not respect boundaries nor do they target one region and not another. Therefore, be prepared.

Even when news media reports very low levels of ‘harmless’ radiation, one must read between the lines. Just take precautions wherever you live now.

Those who reside on the coast, be alerted that a move would be in order. As Orion has indicated numerous times, no coastal regions are safe.

Now, be aware. At Homa farms where all the Homas are performed regularly, the purity of atmosphere, soil and water is protected.

Stockpile supplies for HOMAS—cow dung, ghee, rice.

Stockpile food supplies and necessities for a six month period. Yes, you have time to do it as you can afford to do it.

However, ghee should be made and stored as soon as possible.

Drink pure water. If you cannot add Agnihotra Ash to the well, add it to the drinking water you use daily.

Again, We stress not to give in to panic, worry, fear or uncertainty of any kind.

Again, We emphasize that ‘to be forewarned is to be forearmed.’

This is nothing new. We have been speaking in these terms, alarmed by the state of the environment, for years. This is now more urgent, as catastrophic events of the past few weeks have heightened your collective awareness of the dangers to the global community.

Let us not take a cavalier approach, thinking ‘it cannot touch me.’ When a catastrophe of this caliber takes place anywhere on the Earth today, it affects all. We hold the solution in our hands. This is the time to move forward with all that has been proven, whether scientifically or experientially.

Walk in Light with brave and determined will. There are no boundaries to the Truth.

Go with blessings. Move with Grace.

Sabi nila...

Sa wakas, napakinggan ko rin!

Dati ko pang nalaman ang kantang ito at na-meet ko pa mismo 'yung lumikha si Danny Fabella, gabeh, ang gandah ng kanta!

Sabi nila...
Musika ng Bayan

Sabi nila’y ‘di tayo para sa isa’t-isa
Dahil pareho lang tayong dalawa
Walang patutunguhan mula sa umpisa
Ang pagasasama daw na ‘di tugma

Ito ang tinuran ng nagkukunwang banal
Patunay na kapos sa pagmamahal
Ito ang tinuran ng nagkukunwang matuwid
Na ang puso’t damdamin’y manhid

‘pagkat tayong dalawa’y nagmamahalang lubos
Hangarin sa isa’t-isa’y tapat
Ipaglalaban natin panlalait, bibiguin
Mapanghusgang mundo’y babaguhin

Sabi nila’y ‘di tayong magiging masaya
Sa isang pagtitinginang ‘di tama
‘di raw kaayaya sa mata ng may likha
Kasalanan daw ating ginagawa

Ito ang tinuran ng nagkukunwang marangal
Na siyang yumuyurak sa ating dangal
Ito ang tinuran ng nagkukunwang malinis
Na puno ng dumi ang isip

‘pagkat tayong dalawa’y nagmamahalang lubos
Hangarin sa isa’t-isa’y tapat
Ipaglalaban natin panlalait, bibiguin
Mapanghusgang mundo’y babaguhin

‘pagkat tayong dalawa’y nagmamahalang lubos
Hangarin sa isa’t-isa’y tapat
Ipaglalaban natin panlalait, bibiguin
Mapanghusgang mundo’y babaguhin

Mapanghusgang mundo’y babaguhin

The Philosophy of Regeneration

I received this from a friend, worth sharing to everyone....:D


The approach for Holistic Health Care with the following belief:

1) We believe that the body has the innate ability to create balance and order when properly nourished.

The body has different nutritional needs for each system. The ancient science believed that states of disease and hunger were manifestations of the same thing: a lack of nutrition. The body yields to diseases, weight gain or low energy when it does not receive the proper nourishment.

2) We believe that this nourishment must come from wholesome foods.

The body is designed to obtain its nourishment from whole foods like vegetables, fruits and grains. Only whole foods have the synergy necessary for this task- they have the proper cellular structure, which allows the body to assimilate these foods to nourish, balance and cleanse the body. Wild plant food existing in the forest has the best source of nourishment.

3) We believe that each person must be willing to accept responsibility for his or her own health.

Achieving well-being consists of a series of very personal decisions. "Listen to your body, and it will tell you what to do." Our bodies are the best monitor as to the value of any food. If you need to see a doctor, then go to one.

If you need to improve your nutrition, then learn about wholesome foods from God's gifts in Nature. Start from your own cultural tradition.

God designed each nation with its own plants growing in the wilderness for a reason to benefit all existing forms of life where we dwell.

What is it that GOD has given us in this land where we live so we may be well enough to dwell on Earth for the good of God’s kingdom? Why do these plants exist in our very own backyard?
