Who is the Holy Spirit?

"The Holy Spirit is the bridge to God within you. It is the part of your mind—the part of your Spirit—that is joined with the Mind of God. The Holy Spirit is the Voice for God and acts as a reminder to all of God's children of the unconditional love that God has for them.

God loves His children so much that He wanted His children to always know that they are safe, they are loved, and they are whole. God extended the Holy Spirit as a way to ensure that God’s children would always know these things. God gave this Voice to His children, and this Voice is now a part of them. It is the eternal perspective of Truth, Love, and Reality that cannot be taken from God's children. It is the Voice of God instilled within and the ever‑present reminder to God's children of the Truth of Who and What they are and the Love their Father has for them.

By extending the Holy Spirit, God provided a way to bring His Voice into each of His children as they went out into the world so that they could always remember the Truth of Who and What they are. The Holy Spirit's function and purpose is to bring God’s Voice to each of God’s children, guiding them, directing them, loving them, and restoring their thinking to God's.

Little by little, as you hear, recognize, understand, and become aware of the Holy Spirit in different ways—through your thinking, correcting a thought with this Voice, recognizing this Voice in another, sharing this Voice with a friend, and so on— the Holy Spirit is brought into the world and given to each of God’s children. This Voice is recognized in each of God’s children and used as a reminder for God’s children of the Truth so that they can overcome the world.

The Holy Spirit was given to each of God’s Children by God, put within each one, and is now a part of them. It is not to think that the Holy Spirit is separate from you, is really only a part of God, or will one day be separate, because in Truth, the Holy Spirit is a part of you. It has now been blended and melted into you. That is why it is important to recognize this Voice of God in everyone you meet because It is part of them as well.

The Holy Spirit is within each of God’s children and cannot be extracted. It is there as a constant Resource, Companion, and speaker of Truth no matter what you think you have done, what you think you are doing, or what you think you might do. This Voice for Love within you holds no judgments, never condemns, and only remembers your true Perfection. In that is the impossibility of sin or anything related to it.

It is not possible for the Holy Spirit to judge you in any way because this part of God can only see the Truth of who you are and not who you think you are. God’s Voice is within your mind and is ever available to you to restore your thinking to Truth. In any moment you decide that you do not want to participate in the belief of separation—if you decide you want peace, if you decide you want to remember Who you are and What you are— the Holy Spirit is there within you waiting to join with you in Truth. 

It has been within you since your first step into the world and offers you an alternative to pain and suffering, to fear and loathing, to vengeance and death. This Voice for Love within you offers you Peace, Oneness, Truth, and everlasting Life.

What is Christian Faith?


Faith is trusting God. It is living in a relationship with God that is motivated and sustained by one’s conviction that God does keep his word. Faith is believing that God keeps his promises and then accepting his grace from Jesus, his Son. Faith is living in this relationship of trust moment by moment in accord with God’s will. Both God’s grace and faith are his gifts to those who believe.

An example of faith

There is a common and familiar story about a group of spectators who watched a high-wire aerialist push a wheelbarrow full of bricks back and forth on a cable above Niagara Falls. When the aerialist asked if anyone in the crowd believed that he could do this with someone in the wheelbarrow, a man said, “yes, I believe that you could do that.” The aerialist then invited the man to, “Get in.” Faith is accepting the invitation to get into the wheelbarrow. Please note and remember that there is a special quality about the aerialist and his invitation that enables the invited individual to get into the wheelbarrow.

Faith is trusting in the goodness of God


After God created the universe with all of its various coordinated systems and the earth with living creatures (including Adam and Eve) with all of the food and resources that they all would need, he “saw all that he had made, and it was very good” (Genesis 1:31).
He gave man, these human beings that he had created (Adam and Eve), dominion over all of the living creatures that he had made and told them to “take care” of his garden (Genesis 2:15).
He also gave Adam and Eve the freedom to eat from and to enjoy the trees of the garden that he placed there; but there was one tree whose fruit was forbidden to them, the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:17). If they ate of it, they would “surely die” (Genesis 2:17).
So God apparently had given Adam and Eve everything that they needed only requiring from them that they trust him with the exclusive authority and power to determine in their existence what would be good and what would be evil. And so Adam and Eve resided in God’s garden in a personal relationship with God, the creator of everything, and it was good!

Sin breaks the relationship of faithful trust

When Eve and Adam desired this forbidden fruit and decided to eat of it, with the Devil’s lying and seductive encouragement, their relationship of faith and trusting submission with God was broken. They didn’t die immediately, but they were expelled from God’s garden and forced to endure pain and hard work to produce their children and their provisions.
Because of this rebellious act of distrust, sin became the inheritance of the entire human race and the relationship of faith that God desired and enjoyed with his human creatures was replaced by separation, struggle, pain, and death. The 3rd chapter of Genesis in the Old Testament contains this report of man’s fall, his rebellion against God’s good will and providential care.

But God in his love didn’t leave humanity alone

The Bible is the record of God’s ongoing efforts to restore this relationship that he intended with his human creatures. It relates over and over again his calls, his invitations, to human beings to trust him, to have faith in his word, and to accept his good gift of grace and his good will.
The record includes the stories of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the nation of Israel, Moses, Samuel, David, Isaiah, Daniel, John the Baptist, Mary and Joseph, Jesus, and a group of disciples that included Peter, James, John, Matthew, Mark, Paul, Barnabas, Luke, Timothy and others (see Hebrews chapter 11 for some details regarding this record).
Throughout this record God demonstrates time and time again his loving desire to bless and to care for those who will trust him, who will live in a relationship of faithful submission to his good will and care.

Faith in Jesus brings one back into a good relationship with God

The summary of the gospel, God’s good news is contained in Jesus’ words of instruction and appeal to Nicodemus: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
This relationship is restored when a person believes that God offers him/her, even though he/she is a rebellious sinner, the gift of a blessed relationship with him if he/she will have faith in his word and trust him by acknowledging that his Son, Jesus, is Lord, God in human flesh, and in repentance from his/her sinful rebellion accept Jesus’ atoning sacrifice when he was crucified on a cross.
As Jesus began his ministry, he said, “Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:15). When Peter concluded his powerful sermon on the day of Pentecost with a proclamation of the Lordship of Jesus, in response to their question, “what shall we do?”, he replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins” (Acts 2:36–38). Paul covers this topic of the connection between faith and repentance, belief and obedience, sin and righteousness in Romans chapters 4–8.
God is saying to his sinful human creatures, if you want to live in a good relationship with me, have faith in me, trust me that I can and will bring you back into a joyous and providential relationship with me as you believe upon my Son, Jesus, and accept his sacrifice for your sins.
Like the aerialist on the cable above the chaos of Niagara Falls, God offers his challenging invitation for an amazing personal experience of his loving and good; care, by saying in effect, “If you really believe me and trust me or have faith in me, get into my wheelbarrow, and let me transport you above the chaos, and I’ll even give you the faith”. But there is a challenging rule that comes into play here. It is this: if you do not trust me enough to accept my invitation, then you will not be able to experence the benefits that you claim to believe that I am offering you. Belief has to be expressed in active faithful obedience or it will not bring you the experience.

The goodness of such faith

Accepting God’s invitation in faith is extremely good. Not only will it deliver you from being separated from God by your sin and death, but it will enable you to live as a forgiven sinner who has been cleansed by the righteousness of Jesus, God’s Son, and who is able to live above the sinful chaos of this world protected from its harmful effects, ultimately empowered to resist the Devil’s lying and seductive words for eternity (see Romans 8:28–39).
Sharing such faith with others in daily demonstrations of trusting God, testifying to the goodness of his will and the dependability of his promises, can have extensive and everlasting blessings to you and to those with whom you share your faith. The ride of “faith” in God’s “wheelbarrow” should not be a passive experience in which one just enjoys God’s thrilling blessings. Jesus has work that he wants to accomplish through you as he transports you above and through the “chaos” that you encounter in life. There are hungry men, women, and children that need to be fed and clothed. There are the sick and broken that need to be healed and visited. There are those who are “lost”, perhaps members of your family and friends, engulfed by the chaos around them, that need to hear and to see your “witness” regarding what God and Jesus can do when one has “faith” in God's goodness and his victorious power. There are your “enemies” that need to be forgiven. God and Jesus need to be glorified by what others see happening in your life as Jesus transports you through the chaos of this “battlefield” in which we all live. And they will be glorified as you resist the temptation to be constantly “turning around” trying to tell “the aerialist” (the Lord) how to do what only he can do, or the more serious action of taking over the “handles” yourself.
This is what the Christian faith is all about. This is the fundamental Christian ministry, sharing the good news of Jesus’ redemption of sinful humanity. This is why Christianity is not a religion of rules and rituals but rather a life of personal faith in God and a daily walk of surrender and trust in union with him and Jesus.

Requirements to be a Chef: Be Careful!

Getting a job in the culinary arts may require many years of training – or none at all – depending on the area of the culinary arts you want to go into.  

If you’re looking for a career in the fast food or short-order industry, you won’t need any education past your high school diploma, since you’ll receive most of your training on the job.  However, if you would like to become a chef and work in an upper-level restaurant or open your own restaurant, you’ll need to attend a professional culinary arts school.

Brain Damage Definition!

Brain damage or brain injury is the destruction or degeneration of brain cells.
Brain damage may occur due to a wide range of conditions, illnesses or injuries. Possible causes of widespread (diffuse) brain damage include prolonged hypoxia (shortage of oxygen), poisoning, infection and neurological illness. Common causes of focal or localized brain damage are physical trauma (head injury), stroke, aneurysm or neurological illness.
The extent and effect of brain injury is often assessed by the use of neurological examination, brain imaging and neuropsychological assessment.
Brain injury does not necessarily result in long-term impairment or disability, although the location and extent of damage has a significant effect on the likely outcome. In serious cases of brain injury, the result can be permanent disability, including neurocognitive deficits, speech or movement problems and mental handicap. Severe brain damage may result in persistent vegetative state, coma, or death.
Various professions may be involved in the medical care and rehabilitation of someone who suffers impairment after brain damage. Neurologists, Neurosurgeons and Physiatrists are doctors who specialise in treating brain injury. Neuropsychologists (especially clinical neuropsychologists) are psychologists who specialise in understanding the effects of brain injury and may be involved in assessing the extent of brain damage or creating rehabilitation programmes. Occupational therapists may be involved in running rehabilitation programmes to help restore lost function or help re-learn essential skills.
Because the brain continues to develop until the late teens, damage sustained during childhood is often recovered from more successfully than if the same injury were to occur in adult life.
The effects of impairment or disability resulting from brain injury may be treated by a number of methods, including medication, psychotherapy, neuropsychological rehabilitation, surgery or physical implants such as deep brain stimulation.

The Body Weight!

 The term body weight........
is overwhelmingly used in daily English speech as well as in the contexts of biological and medical sciences to describe the mass of an organism's body. 
Body weight..........
is measured in kilograms throughout the world, although in some countries it is still measured in pounds or stones and pounds and thus may not be well acquainted with measurement in kilograms. Most hospitals, even in the United States, now use kilograms for calculations, but use kilograms and pounds together for other purposes.

Ten (10) Tips for Healthy Diet!

Has the rising cost of food priced you out of a healthy, body-slimming diet? You can trim your figure and your supermarket bill at the same time if you get savvy about which pricey non-essentials to leave on the shelf, and which super foods will jump-start your weight loss regimen.

Here, the top ten foods that will help you stay on a budget and eat a healthy, low fat diet.

Eggs: They're cheap, they're a good source of protein, and they're versatile. You can get a large carton of eggs for around $3; if you just use the whites, that equals three 20 gram servings of protein at about one dollar per serving. "We need protein to balance out our blood sugar," says Penny Kendall-Reed, a naturopathic doctor and author of "The No Crave Diet." "Protein makes you not feel hungry so it is easier to lose weight."
To keep eggs from getting boring, make an egg white omelet with piles of vegetables or pour the egg whites and vegetables into a baking pan and bake it so it comes out like a frittata. Top with salsa if you like. "Think of it as a crustless quiche," Kendall-Reed says. "While a regular quiche would cost you ten dollars, this one costs around four dollars." 

Apples (and other fruit): "The reality is that fresh produce gives you some of the best bang for your buck," Tallmadge says. A recent USDA survey found that the average person could get the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables for just $2.50 per day. If an apple costs 75 cents, look at it this way: that's half what you'd pay for a soft drink in the vending machine.

Canned vegetables: They can be as nutritious as fresh, Tallmadge says, and they cost much less. Plus, with canned vegetables, there is no waste at all. No matter how cheap fresh produce is, it's no bargain if it sits in the refrigerator until it turns rotten and you have to throw it out. Rinse them first to get rid of salt, then stir them into broth for a filling soup, use in casseroles and omelets, and add to tacos and burritos.

Beans: Canned or dried, they're a great buy, notes registered dietitian and radio host Samantha Heller. Half a cup of beans has 100 calories and can be pureed with garlic and a little olive oil to make a great dip. They're rich in fiber, a good source of protein and have very little fat. Try them in whole wheat quesadillas with lean turkey and grated lowfat cheese.

Peanut butter: It's cheap, and believe it or not, it can fit into a weight loss diet, notes Heller. A peanut butter sandwich costs about 50 cents to make, and comes in at 340 calories when made with one tablespoon of peanut butter, two teaspoons of jam and two slices of whole wheat bread.

Carrots (and other root vegetables): Low in calories and loaded with nutrients, carrots are a nutritional powerhouse. Try sprinkling with a little salt and roasting them in a 400-degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes. They'll be soft, sweet and caramelized – great as a snack, with or without lowfat dip.

Brown rice: Yes, it's a carb, but a cup offers lots of bulk and nutrients, says Vonda Wright, MD, author of "Fitness After Forty." "Brown rice has a lot of vitamin A and gives you a feeling of fullness," Wright says. Toss with plenty of roasted vegetables for an easy side dish.

Oatmeal: It's one of the cheapest cereals around and filled with fiber and protein, notes Wright. Don't sabotage your weight loss efforts by piling on the brown sugar, though. Instead, top it with half a sliced banana. "It will make it sweet and healthy, too," Wright says.

Ocean perch and other frozen fish fillets: They're about half the cost of fresh fish fillets and can be prepared in the same ways as fresh, Wright says. One of the easiest ways to prep it is just to top with salt and pepper, and bake for five minutes or until done.

Lettuce: You can get a huge head of romaine for about $3, and use it as the base for an infinite number of salads. But don't buy the prewashed,bagged lettuce, which costs much more and is typically not as fresh.

Fish with Wings!

Verena Tunnicliffe, a professor at the University of Victoria in Canada, said the images provided an extraordinary glimpse into one of the globe's most complex and little-known marine ecosystems.

'Stalked sea lilies once covered the ocean, shallow and deep, but now are rare,' she said in a written statement. 'I've only seen a few in my career. But on this expedition, I was amazed to see them in great diversity.'


A rarely seen 'Asian unicorn' was captured in August in Laos but the rest of the world will never get to view him. The practically extinct animal, officially called a saola, died after being in captivity for several days, according to the Telegraph.

The species is critically endangered, with anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred believed to exist in the wild. The saola is very elusive, which is why it has been compared to the unicorn.

Resembling antelopes in North Africa, it’s actually related more closely to wild cattle. It was initially discovered in 1992 and is found in mountainous areas of Laos and Vietnam.

A Piranha NO!...A Dragonfish

Imagine living in the sea where it is permanently dark, cold, and food is hard to find. For many animals at extreme depth, it may be weeks to months between meals. 
If you find something to eat, you have to hang on to it. 
This is why so many deep-sea fishes have lots of big teeth. This dragonfish even has teeth on its tongue! This specimen is about the size of a banana.

It's Suso: A Vent Snail

Scientists may finally know just how many creatures are lurking in the deep depths of the underwater world. 
A 10-year census of marine life has just been completed - and researchers found thousands of exotic new species. 
Their work will help assess threats to the oceans ranging from climate change to BP's oil spill.

The Census of Marine Life estimated there are one million-plus species in the oceans, with at least three-quarters of them yet to be discovered.

This hydrothermal vent snail (Alviniconcha sp.) found in Suiyo Seamount, Tokyo Hydrothermal Vent, is one of the thousands of creatures discovered.

It's a Lion... NO!... It's a Tiger......

It's a lion! No, it's a tiger! Well actually, it's a liger.
These two ligers are hybrids between lions and tigresses.
Sitting atop his big brother, 4-week-old Aries, has been gaining about a pound a day.
At this rate he'll catch up to 900-pound Hercules in no time.

Looks like Spiderman: Dart Frog

This frog is a real rarity - it has an incredible burst of colorful flames on its head and contrasting water-patterned legs. It’s a newer species, announced by the World Wildlife Fund in October under the species name 'Ranitomeya amazonica.'

These poison dart frogs are native to the Amazon jungle. The species was first discovered and singled out in 1999 and has been found on a national reserve in Peru. Each year, a new bird is found and every four years a new mammal discovered in the Peruvian Amazon, a haven for biodiversity where conservation and danger often go hand in hand.

Two Headed Calf, Amazing......

With two heads that give it four eyes, three ears and two mouths, the brown-haired baby cow has to be bottle-fed by its owner because its mother refuses to feed it.

While it's not clear yet if the calf is healthy, it can apparently can eat with both mouths. As happens for many strange-headed creatures, people from around the calf's home of Martvili, Georgia, have come to see the creature.

Joseph Paschal, a livestock specialist at the Texas Agrilife Extension, said the two-headed cow could live if both of its heads are fully attached to its body -- meaning if food and water, as well as oxygen, can easily flow through the calf.

Health Corner: What is Hypertension?


Hypertension is the term used to describe high blood pressure.
Blood pressure readings are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and usually given as two numbers. For example, 120 over 80 (written as 120/80 mmHg).
  • The top number is your systolic pressure, the pressure created when your heart beats. It is considered high if it is consistently over 140.
  • The bottom number is your diastolic pressure, the pressure inside blood vessels when the heart is at rest. It is considered high if it is consistently over 90.
Either or both of these numbers may be too high.
Pre-hypertension is when your systolic blood pressure is between 120 and 139 or your diastolic blood pressure is between 80 and 89 on multiple readings. If you have pre-hypertension, you are more likely to develop high blood pressure.
See also: Blood pressure


Most of the time, there are no symptoms. Symptoms that may occur include:
  • Chest pain
  • Confusion
  • Ear noise or buzzing
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Nosebleed
  • Tiredness
  • Vision changes
If you have a severe headache or any of the symptoms above, see your doctor right away. These may be signs of a complication or dangerously high blood pressure called malignant hypertension.

Causes & Risk Factors

Blood pressure measurements are the result of the force of the blood produced by the heart and the size and condition of the arteries.
Many factors can affect blood pressure, including:
  • How much water and salt you have in your body
  • The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels
  • The levels of different body hormones
High blood pressure can affect all types of people. You have a higher risk of high blood pressure if you have a family history of the disease. High blood pressure is more common in African Americans than Caucasians. Smoking, obesity, and diabetes are all risk factors for hypertension.
Most of the time, no cause is identified. This is called essential hypertension.
High blood pressure that results from a specific condition, habit, or medication is called secondary hypertension. Too much salt in your diet can lead to high blood pressure. Secondary hypertension may also be due to:
  • Adrenal gland tumor
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Birth control pills
  • Coarctation of the aorta
  • Cocaine use
  • Cushing syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease, including:
    • Glomerulonephritis (inflammation of kidneys)
    • Kidney failure
    • Renal artery stenosis
    • Renal vascular obstruction or narrowing
  • Medications
    • Appetite suppressants
    • Certain cold medications
    • Corticosteroids
    • Migraine medications
  • Hemolytic-uremic syndrome
  • Henoch-Schonlein purpura
  • Obesity
  • Pain
  • Periarteritis nodosa
  • Pheochromocytoma
  • Pregnancy (called gestational hypertension)
  • Primary hyperaldosteronism
  • Renal artery stenosis
  • Retroperitoneal fibrosis
  • Wilms' tumor    


    The goal of treatment is to reduce blood pressure so that you have a lower risk of complications.
    There are many different medicines that can be used to treat high blood pressure, including:
  • Alpha blockers
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
  • Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs)
  • Beta-blockers
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Central alpha agonists
  • Diuretics
  • Renin inhibitors, including aliskiren (Tekturna)
  • Vasodilators
Your doctor may also tell you to exercise, lose weight, and follow a healthier diet. If you have pre-hypertension, your doctor will recommend the same lifestyle changes to bring your blood pressure down to a normal range.

Often, a single blood pressure drug may not be enough to control your blood pressure, and you may need to take two or more drugs. It is very important that you take the medications prescribed to you. If you have side effects, your health care provider can substitute a different medication.

Announcement: Cellphone ringing in CROC'S Tummy

KIEV, Ukraine – Workers at a Ukrainian aquarium didn't believe it when a visitor said a crocodile swallowed her phone. Then the reptile started ringing.

The accident in the eastern city of Dnipropetrovsk sounds a bit like "Peter Pan," in which a crocodile happily went "tick-tock" after gulping down an alarm clock.

But Gena, the 14-year-old croc who swallowed the phone, has hardly been living a fairy tale: He hasn't eaten or had a bowel movement in four weeks and appears depressed and in pain.

Gena noshed on the Nokia phone after Rimma Golovko dropped it in the water. She had stretched out her arm, trying to snap a photo of Gena opening his mouth, when the phone slipped.

"This should have been a very dramatic shot, but things didn't work out," she said.

Employees were skeptical when Golovko told them what happened. "But then the phone started ringing and the sound was coming from inside our Gena's stomach and we understood she wasn't lying," said Alexandra, an employee who declined to give her last name as she wasn't authorized to speak publicly.

Since then, Gena has been refusing food and acting listless. He also won't play with three fellow African crocodiles, despite being the leader in the group.

"His behavior has changed," Alexandra said. "He moves very little and swims much less than he used to."

Doctors tried to whet the crocodile's appetite this week by feeding him live quail rather than the pork or beef he usually gets once a week. The quail were injected with vitamins and a laxative, but while Gena smothered one bird, he didn't eat it.

Dnipropetrovsk chief veterinarian Oleksandr Shushlenko said the crocodile will be taken for an X-ray next week if he continues to refuse food. Surgically removing the phone would be a last resort, he said, since incisions and stitches usually take at least three weeks to heal in reptiles and the procedure is dangerous for the animal and the vets.

"Everything will depend on where the foreign body is located," Shushlenko said. "We don't have much experience working with such large animals."

The crocodile in "Peter Pan" with the ticking stomach was on the hunt for Captain Hook after getting a taste for the pirate's flesh from eating one of his hands. But luckily for Hook, he could always hear the crocodile coming.

Golovko has about as much optimism for retrieving her phone as Hook did for retrieving his hand. But she does want to get back the phone's SIM card, which holds her precious photos and contacts.
