Maybe that's a good thing. I spend too much time with it anyway. It was how I kept up with politics, but God knows more of what is going on. He knows what's going to happen tomorrow, so He can tell me. The Bible is relevant today, because the nature of humans has not changed. We are the same as the first man, if not dumber.
So, here's some ancient wisdom:
"A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
"The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness."
Kind of reminds a person of politics today. Happy Wednesday!
No, there are no opiates in it. For the last few days, I felt like seeping garbage. I probably smell funny, too. A week or so ago, I bragged that I hadn't had so much as a cold for years, and guess what? I have a cold, or a flu, or the creeping crud. I am feeling like nine-day-old vomit that the dog won't touch. Why is it that a cold feels so much worse than a near-death experience?
Last week, a friend asked me about the "Morphine Bomb". It was all over Facebook for awhile. Essential oil people claim that it alleviates pain. I made one for Moon, and she said her migraine left. Then that Mack Truck hit me...
I was laying in bed wondering if I could possibly feel any worse when I realized that the oils I used on Moon were still on the counter.
Five drops each into a gelatin capsule makes a pain-killing combo that also makes me happy. I wonder if this stuff is addictive? My sinus cavities are still stuffed and draining out the back, so my throat is still scratchy, but the pain is gone. Did I mention that it also made me happy?
It's not cheap; it costs about $5 a dose, but compared to chemical meds, it's a bargain! These three bottles together cost $240.00 and make about 50 capsules. In come cases, money CAN buy happiness. In additions to certain other properties, Frankincense is a mood lifter. ;)
1 ½ cups 3% hydrogen peroxide 1/2 cup lemon juice Water to fill a gallon jug 12 drops lemon essential oil
Place a funnel in the top of a gallon jug and pour in the hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice. Remove the funnel and fill the jug with water. Add the lemon essential oil. Cap the jug and shake to combine.
To use: Add one cup of bleach alternative per load of white laundry. Add one cup of the bleach alternative solution to the bleach dispenser in your washing machine or directly into the washing machine along with cleaning liquid as the machine fills up with water, before adding the white laundry. Wash as usual. The clothes will come out of the washer fresh, clean, and whiter.
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. I simply observe and record, so these are merely personal accounts for you to consider.
Blood pressure seems to be related to fluid balance and the ability of the body to circulate them. Cleansing and digestion also seem to be critical to normal body function. Therefore, getting enough fluids is critical.
I have noticed that an essential oil known as Ylang Ylang gives great results. One lady took her bp before and after breathing the aroma. Her bp dropped 15 points.
Another one that helps me to be calm and peaceful is called, Peace and Calming™. It is rare, so often I choose Aroma Life™ instead. Both make me feel good, but I have not checked my blood pressure after using them. Both Peace and Calming™ and Aroma Life™ have Ylang Ylang in them.
People use euphemisms to soften a hard truth, but that is not what political correctness does. Political correctness disguises the truth. Leonard Nimoy, a respected entertainer, passed and was laid to rest. That says it much more nicely than, "The old coot freakin' died!" (Strangely, I was more saddened when another Russian Jew left the land of the living. I still mourn the death of Isaac Asimov.) Euphemisms help us to cope with harsh truths. This explains why we have such a hilarious number of them for the end of life.
This morning, I read some trollings concerning opposing political opinions. The PC crowd cannot handle facts. They have to explain them with corrections. They have to massage the numbers into a lie. One of my favorite lies says that when 17% of the population commits 39% of all non-drug related crime, it has to be the fault of the other 83% of the population. Part of that lie says that education has to be acquired without discipline, because discipline means oppression. Tell that to an Olympic gold-metalist. Another lie says that culture doesn't matter. It doesn't matter unless that culture is Christian, because Christians are oppressive, divisive, and destructive, (unlike Muslims,who are simply misunderstood).
Where do I get these ideas? Mainstream American news outlets and the trolls who follow them beat these messages on the relentless drums of propaganda. In 2012, I made the dark prediction that we Americans have had our last free election. Now more and more people are starting to agree. Few adults know history without the filter of the progressive agenda. Fewer children have any idea what brought about our Declaration of Independence, nor what true freedom entails.
2 Corinthians 3:17
"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
Obviously, in order to bring about a totalitarian government, they have to get rid of God. Only God can bring us back to freedom.
