Rising Phoenix Series #35: The Power of LOVE!


Hello everyone

Once again I'm completed in awe at the absolutely perfect synchronous timing of the material that found its way squarely in front my eyes - both physically and spiritually - for inclusion in this central key of this vast puzzle made from all the previous compilations and pieces of information that were offered for our intelligent consideration in the past several years.

As I've done since I started "receiving" verbatim thought-forms from a higher Source - The One Source in All of Us - on November 19, 1981 when I accepted to write down without mental questioning the words that were coming to mind - just as I do right now - words that, as I now understand, were to launch me on this most interesting life path I've taken since, words that are now coming to fruition as we approach the final lap of our long collective journey from the dark pit of ignorance to the apex of knowledge of our true eternal and sublimely radiant Nature, words that said in essence that The Time Is Now.

I've heard stories in the course of all those years about how other people where likewise touched, through a Greater Force than anything they have ever know, with these triggering key words coming to them as a form of subliminal command gradually unlocking long hidden memories and empowering all those people with the inner sense of a mission they were meant to accomplish while in embodiment.

It has sure been an eventful journey with lots of cliff-hanging, will-testing moments as we went from the imminent risk of nuclear Armageddon to the near inevitability - as it now appears today - of a global meltdown of our planetary Life nurturing systems at the hands of homo sapiens sapiens, the "human who is aware of being aware."

Yet throughout this initiatory odyssey, there is one central realization that gradually dawned on a growing number of us, a concept and means of action so powerful that words fail to adequately render its nearly unfathomable substance. And that most precious Knowledge, that inner sense of Absoluteness, that Holy Grail of spiritual innerstanding is concealed and yet revealed if the simplest word of all... LOVE!

When faced with absolute evil, with a near total absence of Light, with something that is creeping its way into our soul through means of fearful thought-forms unleashed today through some of the most powerful media ever designed to entrap and ensnare unsuspecting and still unaware humans, what other choice do we have but to turn towards the One Radiant Light that has always seemed to evade our grasp since we started this incarnation "Game"—this exploration of all there is to experience in our universal "playground"—where else could we turn to, now that our global demise seems to become so inescapable for those who truly know the scope of our own collective foolishness?

Which is precisely the point...

This is how WE have designed it, for this is how we wanted it to be in the first place, at this first moment when we thought of creating this Grand Theatre, at this epochal Time of the Beginning when there was only One...

As you explore this compilation, I bet you will start to get my drift and enjoy The Moment... as I do.

Organisms Found in Deepest Part of Ocean (Feb 3)
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&ncid=753&e=1&u=/ap/20050203/ap_on_sc/deepest_life
WASHINGTON - Tiny single-celled organisms, many of them previously unknown, have been discovered beneath nearly seven miles of water in the deepest part of the ocean. A sample of sediment collected from the Challenger Deep southwest of Guam in the Pacific Ocean Islands yielded several hundred foraminifera, a type of plankton that is usually abundant near the ocean surface. "On the species level, all the species we found from the Challenger Deep are quite new," researcher Hiroshi Kitazato said vie e-mail. (...) These distinct creatures probably represent the remnants of a deep-dwelling group that was able to adapt to the high pressures, the researchers suggest in reporting the find. Their discovery is reported in this week's issue of the journal Science. Because the water is so deep, the pressure where the find was made is 1,100 times more than normal atmospheric pressure at the surface. CLIP

THINK ABOUT IT: If Life can "miraculously" take hold and thrive under the crushing weight of 37,000 feet of water, what else could this amazing Force have in store for us once we cross the threshold from a single-body consciousness to encompass the awareness of All That Is on this globe and beyond?

I think it is appropriate here to quote what is posted on the Earth Rainbow Network homepage...

From the Point of Infinity to the Point of Eternity,
there is only One Being... One Life... One Consciousness...
radiating in all directions, through all dimensions,
the infinite, eternal Presence That Is!

And Life on planet Earth is but an expression

of the infinite creativity of the One.
We are here to celebrate Its existence,
here to discover our Unity with All That Is.

Now as never before, the times are ripe for a massive change.


Humanity, amidst colossal difficulties,

has arisen from the soil of evolution on this majestic planet,
one amongst so many others.
And now the time has come for a New Beginning,
a time of complete, total Renewal
of what constitutes the Human Experience on planet Earth.

We have to awaken...

We are bound for the stars...
And the Universe is holding its breath in keen anticipation
of this magic moment when Humanity will soar
through the Skies of Infinity.

The Immortal Child is about to be born...


And again, quoting from the first chapter of the book The Immortal Child...

"Far, far away, at the outermost bounds of the star fields of a galaxy like so many others, on a stretch of golden sands caressed by the ceaseless roll of waves, a miracle is in the process of happening. Something new, unique, never seen before, is, for the first time, disturbing the apparent peace of the worlds of 'inert' matter. A living being is taking shape...

Slow process of gestation arising from the patient work of aeons, cautious attempt emerging from the primal soup, but also promise of an uninterrupted succession of increasingly complex and evolved life forms, a cell, a single cell, simple structure of elementary forms, has taken shape through the magic of Life and opened the first chapter of the most prodigious story ever told, that of the evolution of Life in matter. For a very long time, an eternity in fact, Life had nurtured this mighty project. And there it was. Out of the Primordial Spark was born the first offspring of the unlimited creative power of Life. And soon, a second cell appeared, born out of the fission of this Primordial Spark. And, for the first time, the Universe experienced duality...

The two sparks born of the source observed each other for a time, assessing the sheer scale of what had just happened... With the third cell, the great saga of Life started its prolific ascent towards the Light. For what came from the One was bound to return to the One..."

Ah, put our light into money. I like that one.

I also like putting our money where our heart is. What do I mean? Where do you bank? Supporting a life killing multi national like Bank of America or Citibank to name a few?

Shopping at a multi national supporting world slavery?

Eating at a multi national franchise or supporting a locally owned restaurant?
Buying Earth un-friendly items from housewares to clothes?

We speak each time we spend a dollar. Bank a dollar. Earn a dollar. What does your light support? Light or darkness? This is key. As long as we protest and bank at the one world order banks, the darkness laughs it up at our expense. And I do mean expense.

Supporting the media that lies to you? Is a left-gatekeeper? Check out http://www.leftgatekeepers.com

Will you support media that supports you and the Earth? And spirit? http://www.Meria.net

Every day we awaken to choice. We choose to get out of bed, wash our faces, have breakfast, and choose whether or not we will make the day count.

We needn't all be out there in Joan of Arc fashion saving the world, but we must be aware of what system we are supporting. The system that will soon collapse atop it's foundation of lies, or a system of sustainability and support of each other.

Visualize a large medicine wheel around the planet. The planet IS a large medicine wheel. The Earth gives us everything we need to survive and thrive. Nature speaks of our right of abundance, yet millions of people suffer without the basic needs daily. It is our disconnect from nature that has caused our unhappiness.

Go outside barefoot. Let the Earth feel your spirit and energy. She will give you back all you need. Get in tune with the wheel of life. I labored 13 yrs to produce Mother Earth's book "Reinventing the Wheel". All you need do is buy one. Read it. Apply it. Instant happiness and peace. Spirituality should be simple not convoluted. Spirituality is how you live each second of your day.

Much love to all the beautiful people and groups who contribute out of love for their fellow humans and the planet such as Jean and the writers here. There are more of us than even we know.

It's time to let the wheel re-turn.

Subject: Indigo - The Movie
Date: 30 Jan 2005

Hello everyone!

Annie & I went to see "Indigo" at the Portland Spiritualist Church last evening. Yesterday was the only day they were showing it for now. The producers are looking for a distributor and venues to show it in worldwide. We both think this is a GREAT movie. Though it doesn't have "famous" actors/actresses in it, or a huge budget, it is a beautifully photographed & well acted & directed movie.

It is so wonderful to have "entertainment" out there that inspires us to open ourselves to the connections we ALL have to our Creator, the One Source of ALL life. It also tells the story of the Indigo children that are all around the world now - and have been for some time. They are psychically connected, able to communicate with each other non-verbally, able to "see" events, able to know things, able to channel the Higher Power at a touch for healing. I just can't say enough wonderful things about this movie.

It is time that more & more people have the opportunity to have entertainment like this that helps us to step up to help BE the difference we wish to see. It's not about egos - actors or our own - it's about connecting, about truly wanting to be a humble channel so that everyone we come in contact with has an opportunity to "feel", to experience a better way to be. We all know that the way the world is going - and has been for thousands of years - isn't the answer.

These Indigo children are amazing!!! If you aren't that familiar with them, please check out "Emissary of Light" by James Twyman. It is an awesome book!!! Doreen Virtue, Ph.D has also written a few books on the Indigo & Crystal children that are great, too. How many times have we sat in circles, either with our circle families or with our teachers & Elders & heard that the Elders who have passed into spirit have done so to help us - and that they WILL be back! These Elders ARE coming back - in these children. I have heard that more than once. I have felt that. So many children with ADHD, ADD, Autism are truly special, gifted children - they are connected to a higher source. Just as so many "normal" children are as well. You can see it in their eyes, sense it in their energy.

One of the many inspiring lines from the movie I loved is by  Grace, the 10 yr old Indigo granddaughter of Ray (played by Neale Donald Walsch) who is trying to explain her abilities & gifts to him. Ray is frustrated, disbelieving - Grace looks at him & smiles & says "You're dimensionally challenged". I could go on & on about this movie. I am just thrilled that we have spiritual cinema movies out there - and more scheduled to come out.

I for one am tired of the violence & negativity that bombard our senses from so many of the tv shows & movies & games out there. Thank God for movies like this one, shows like Joan of Arcadia.!

Blessings of love & light to all!!!!!

Holly

EARTH MEANDERS Viva la Earth Revolution! A Sustainable Future by All Means Necessary

By Dr. Glen Barry,
http://www.environmentalsustainability.info/

January 30, 2005

We know what is required for global environmental sustainability, what is lacking is political will. In the face of continued stonewalling and green washing by the Earth liquidating industrial growth machine, lovers and protectors of the Earth and her humanity should not so quickly dismiss the possibility of an Earth Revolution - peaceful or otherwise - sufficient to ensure global ecological sustainability.

Gasping Earth

I am constantly amazed at people that afford the natural world - plants, animals and the Earth itself - little or no worth. Modern humans have lost sight of the web of life and our place within, and because of such willful ignorance the Earth and her humanity's survival is threatened. We should all be aware of the environmental problems that face the Earth and thus our and our children's survival. Threats to the Earth are more complex than if we pollute we will get global warming - what we are witnessing is the demise of the global ecological system.

The world's environmental crises include forest and other habitat destruction which causes loss of biological diversity and ecosystems; water and oceanic overuse and degradation; climate and other global changes; and a deadly cocktail of persistent toxics. Each global environmental malady is but a different aspect of the Earth's ecosystem decline and collapse in total, brought on by humanity's fecundity, avarice and stupidity.

The Earth's perilous condition is exacerbated by the tragic state of humanity. Global inequities in wealth, terrorism and militarism, and an absence of social justice, both cause, and are caused, by environmental decline. Western civilization such as it is - including its economic, religious and social systems - has not and will not prove adequate to sustainably provide for most of the Earth's inhabitants for much longer.

The Earth is dying because of the way you and I live. This essay shall try to identify key ecological requirements for global ecological sustainability, turning later to the political ecology of the matter. I close with a perfunctory examination of conditions under which a violent "Earth Revolution" may be justified.

Global Ecological Sustainability

Here I wish to investigate in broad strokes elements of an environmental policy adequate to achieve global ecological sustainability. The human family must embark upon the most ambitious project in history - an "Earth Revolution" - in order to again achieve a combination of natural ecosystems and human endeavors adequate to sustain themselves and each other. As humanity has already overshot the carrying capacity of the Earth, global ecological sustainability will only be achieved by entering an age of ecological restoration which stops further destruction and helps natural habitats to expand and become healthier.

Environmentalist and pro-growth people have a fundamentally different view of the world. Anyone with half an ecological wit can see imminent limits to growth do exist, however delayed due to technology. Desertification, water-borne disease and climate change clearly indicate there are too many people that in sum total are consuming too much. Lifestyles of affluent countries are going to need to be simplified and made more efficient to reduce their impact. But this does not obviate the fact that the Earth now has many more humans than can be supported well.

My best estimate is that there will need to be a reduction in population to around one billion - the exact amount to be calibrated as requirements for global ecological sustainability continue to emerge. This can best be achieved through immediate global incentives to have fewer children - including tax relief, and preferential access to education and other benefits. With an average of one child per couple (though in practice some may have none and others as many as two), this could be achieved in several generations.

We must learn to love and respect the land. Most people will need to be living symbiotically with the land. Science suggests 50% of land area will need to be maintained as "global ecological reserves" - zoned as areas of strict protection, natural conservation management, tribal lands and other community-based conservation development schemes (eco-forestry, eco-tourism, gardening and plant raising, restoration). This will require massive continental level rewilding efforts; as whole roads, towns and other human artifacts are removed from large and connected areas deemed necessary to maintain ecosystems and non-human species.

Cities will need to be re-thought and transformed. On the simplest level, this means pedestrian and ecological needs will surpass those of cars and their roads. New urbanism and bioregionalism inform us that humans can live, work, play and socialize in ways appropriate and sustainable for their local environments. The next technological revolution will focus upon what is necessary for human continuity. Business will be required to not only end pollution and environmental damage, but to pursue economic activities that are ecologically restorative.

Access to water must be enshrined as a basic human right. Those that have gained access to large amounts of water through historical accident will lose their "rights". In particular irrigated agriculture from fossil water stores to support inflated populations will become a thing of the past. It will no longer be deemed socially acceptable to use lakes and rivers as dumping grounds for waste. Riparian zones and key watersheds will need to be removed from human use.

The world's oceans have long been thought to be too massive to ever be damaged. Large marine dead zones and dramatic declines in fish and other marine wildlife have shown this to be false. If oceanic ecosystems are to persist and continue providing services upon which civilization depends, large marine protected areas - some one third or more of their total area - are going to need to be placed off limits to industrial development. This will mean an immediate end to industrial fishing/mining of marine life.

Maintenance of predictable and relatively stable climatic and other geo-biochemical patterns will require a complete revamping of our energy infrastructure. Super-Kyoto targets must be established and implemented that reduce carbon dioxide and other emissions by over 60% by 2050. The best minds and materials must be put into such efforts, noting that current expenditures are a minuscule percentage of that spent on the military. Not only do we not know what toxic persistent chemicals do individually, we have no idea of what they do synergistically. The age of life destroying engineered chemical compounds will end.

Humanity will need to return to rituals that acknowledge our place within the cosmos and the Earth. Doctrinaire cults of personality will be replaced by rituals that acknowledge and celebrate the natural rhythms whereby life is possible and continues. Life's meaning will come from knowledge, community and creativity - not from consumption. Our children's future will be assured only when humanity acknowledges the Earth is alive, our mother, and the giver of life.

Earth Revolution

Ideally, a peaceful Earth Revolution based upon enlightened self-interest, a well developed ecological ethic, and good governance will provide conditions sufficient (above) to ensure global ecological sustainability, while equitably meeting all of humanity's basic needs. It is much desired that this occur non-violently. I implore each of us to pursue every non-violent means possible to get the human family into sustainability with the Earth, in order that neither is destroyed.

As an academic exercise I wish to briefly examine when and why a violent revolution may be necessary on behalf of the Earth. I do not mean to suggest that death and mayhem - part of any revolution - is desirable or imminent; but the Earth's must be protected and healed at any price. Assuming that other political and social measures have failed, I suggest that as a last resort a violent Earth Revolution may be necessary to save the Earth. Given the precarious state of the Earth and all her inhabitants, the possibility of a violent Earth Revolution to save the Earth should not be discarded out of hand.

One way or another, humanity's destruction of the Earth and our habitat will be remedied. Gaia will either shrug our grubby existence off through famine, pestilence and war - or we shall enter an age of restoration and sustainability - through wise governance or through violent revolution. Perhaps it is only through murder and mayhem that we can save the Earth. Would you have fought to stop Hitler or Napoleon? Would you fight to protect your children's lives? Then why not fight to protect the Earth? Indeed, doing so IS fighting to protect your children.

If ignorant, self-righteous and superstitious fascists continue to reign - the true eco-terrorists in their plundering of the Earth's life giving systems - it may well prove necessary to use violence in defense of the Earth. In discussing this as an academic exercise, I would suggest that the sort of mischief that has been carried out in the past by Earth First and ELF - spiking a tree, destroying a bulldozer - is inadequate. An Earth Revolution is not about making a statement - it is about results.

I would suggest that to be effective, a violent revolution on behalf of the Earth must seek to seize power, smash Earth destroying entities, and transform society along the lines indicated above. Anything less would prove inadequate. The industrial triad of fossil fuels, mining and logging would need to be immediately dismembered, to allow the Earth's natural regenerative capabilities to recover and accelerate.

Sadly, the best way to avoid such a revolution is exactly as it has always been throughout history - to make the privileged and powerful cognizant of the fact that their privilege and power depends upon major societal change. Given looming ecological constraints imposed by the Earth, it is not clear that moderate environmental reforms can occur in a manner that addresses global inequities and is sufficient to reverse ecosystem decline and loss.

We must try to save the Earth without going to war. However, there is nothing more instinctual for any creature than maintaining their species - including fighting for their self-preservation. In the face of continued stonewalling and green washing by the industrial growth machine, lovers and protectors of the Earth and her humanity should not so quickly dismiss the possibility of an Earth Revolution - peaceful or otherwise - sufficient to ensure global ecological sustainability.

The Earth must and shall be sustained by all means necessary. Viva la Earth Revolution!

Hi Jean,

I'm looking forward to you joining us on The Earth News Hour on the 10th. It'll be way cool for sure.

As for Mother Earth:

Let me state this: Humans are so egotistical that they honestly believe they can destroy or save the planet. Mother Earth has lived through much worse than humans and our assault on the outermost layers of her skin. She has survived creation, meteors, earthquakes, pestilence, etc. She will indeed survive humans.

The question is: will humans survive?

Unless everyone begins to live their life in a sacred manner, we will die. It's that simple. The message of the medicine wheel is turning. Interconnectedness to each other, and then all other living things. Where's the respect? love? sacred?

It's time to make sure you are living in a sacred manner as if your life depends on it, because it does.

The Earth warns us as a loving parent would. Many turn a deaf ear.

Being in tune with the planet is the greatest joy any human can experience. The rest is all window dressing, and quite ugly I may add.

The lessons of joyous living are simple.

Looking forward to our interview on the 10th,

Love,

Meria

Date: 1 Feb 2005

Dear Friends,

In just three months from today we will celebrate the second annual Global Love Day event on May 1, 2005. We are already receiving reports of events that will be hosted around the world. Individuals and organizations from over 60 countries have responded since we began a little over a year ago and the list continues to grow as more find out about it. We now have 10 wonderful volunteer country coordinators sharing the vision in their nations and beyond. Our flyers are available in 9 languages and with three governors and ten mayors/councils issuing proclamations already, we expect to see many more communities adopt May 1 as a celebration of humanity everywhere.

This year the related Art, Essay and Poetry Invitational is open to "children of all ages" so both student and adult can participate. The post mark cut-off date for submissions is March 25, 2005. We are already receiving entries and they are truly remarkable. The young of heart today understand the need for global unity and love. We look forward to sharing the Finalist awards with you in May. 

If you are inspired to help spread the word, we would love your assistance. You can forward this email, call or write to your friends and family, community, corporations, governments and media to announce this event. Please consider contacting your mayor, governor, or elected officials and encourage them to create a proclamation (see sample) embracing Global Love Day. We gratefully accept your time and effort. As a 501(c) 3 corporation we are a tax deductible charity if you would prefer to assist in this way. Our web site is updated almost daily just to keep you informed of our progress.

Please take a moment to see the Global Love Day pages http://www.thelovefoundation.com/Global_Love_Day.htm or visit our main site http://www.thelovefoundation.com

Thank you - together we are making this a better world for all.

NOTE FROM JEAN: After mentioning to Harold I was going to include his letter above in this compilation, he replied this:

Hi Jean,

Thank you for including Global Love Day 2005 in your compilation - I feel honored you support and include us.

On a personal note, I have been curious/wondering if you have perceived a shift in the last few months (especially after the US elections) in the types of information you are receiving and compiling. It appears many of us have released our "fight" (or holding on to duality) since then and are actively pursuing and placing our energy in what truly matters - especially anything to do with love.

The reason I share this is it appears to me your compilations seem brighter, lighter and more positive too. I cannot pinpoint a specific example, rather I keep sensing your emails to be more potent and directed in a new way. I offer this as a positive sign and compliment and do not infer a judgment to ones of the past. 

I am grateful you offer these compilations for all of us and act as a repository for so much information and the many connections. It is a pleasure to share the adventure with you.

Love, light and peace,

Harold W. Becker

TO WHICH I REPLIED:

Hi Harold!

It is interesting that you point this out to me. It is true that I've shifted gradually my efforts towards focusing people's attention in a more balanced way with regards to world outer and inner events. To me it feels like a natural evolution and tonight's compilation will highlight that aspect in some ways as you'll see.

However I should remind to you that you are not subscribed to the automated listserver and thus receive ONLY the Light-oriented material. If you were to review the other kinds of compilations I network, especially the latest ones archived on the Earth Rainbow Network website you would come to realize that both ends of the duality spectrum have gone into more extreme levels of "evil" on one side, and "good" on the other - and please forgive me for using such misleading, generic terms to make this quick comment.

I'm glad however you are finding useful the information I send your way and encourage you to keep me posted as to the developments of your most excellent - and timely - initiative.

Love and Light will prevail

Jean

To: President of U.S., U.S. Congress, United Nations

Introduction to the Declaration of Cosmic Cooperation

The Declaration of Cosmic Cooperation is designed to state human intention to now join in peaceful relations with Off Planet Cultures. At the present time, a handful of people in the world are determining for all of humanity how we relate to beings from other regions of the Universe, and these few people are not choosing a path of peace. President Eisenhower reportedly said in the 1950s that the subject of actual UFO and ET presence on Earth is not in the best of hands now, being controlled by a covert military/industrial group. Those persons currently in control of Off Planet Culture contact wish to weaponize space, they have actually engaged in attacks on Off Planet Culture craft and occupants, and they also refuse to use what has been learned from Off Planet Cultures for the benefit of all of humankind. They are choosing to give the world new and terrible weapons, rather than an infinite and nonpolluting energy generation system, which has been reverse-engineered from UFO technology. We should not be at the mercy of these few humans who wish to continue the game of secrecy, and who wish to continue to withhold this actual workable technology that would completely eliminate our need for fossil fuels, nuclear technology, and internal combustion engines. In the Declaration of Cosmic Cooperation, we are stating to the Universe that "we the people" now want space to be a place of peace, that we humans want to be peaceful participants with members of Off Planet Cultures, and that we want to reap the benefits of such relations with them. If governments will not take the initiative for peaceful membership in the Universal Community, then we will do so by declaring our intent in the Declaration of Cosmic Cooperation.


Declaration of Cosmic Cooperation

Because of the course of events on Earth, it has become necessary for we humans to declare our desire to join with peaceful civilizations throughout the Universe to save Earth and ourselves from our own excessive self-interest. We desire to use our creativity to assure that all living things on Earth are free to enjoy the resources and beauty of Creation now and throughout future generations.

We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all are created with the right to enjoy the Universe and receive sustenance; all are endowed with certain inalienable rights, among these are Life, Liberty, and the realization of Happiness; that to secure these rights we recognize that the denial of the rights of any living thing affects the rights of all beings in the Universe.

Civilizations are legitimized by their ability to promote these rights for all life now and in the future. They should exist for the purpose of recognizing and serving the unity of life. To the extent that they promote primarily their own identity, they inhibit the recognition and implementation of this unity. Extreme identification with any part of the whole Cosmos, be it a particular region of the Cosmos, a planet, nation, religion, race, institution, or species is detrimental to individual and collective peace throughout the Universe.

We humans have changed life on Earth. We have converted valuable resources into waste products. We have threatened the very existence of life on Earth with our weapons of mass destruction, mass pollution, and mass poverty. We have allowed our strong desire for independence to interfere with our innate and natural qualities of goodness, love, and sharing. We have been lured into the belief that our individual lives are more important than the lives of others, wherever they reside.

We humans now choose to change our approach to all of life to be that of service-to-others, rather than service-to-self. We vow to eliminate our over-identification with our particular individual lives and with our planet. We vow to create a new sense of cooperation that values the life force within everything. We pledge our lives to co-creating a Universe where all beings can more easily remember their natural freedom, unity, and goodness. We pledge that we, the people of Earth, shall strive to become peaceful and productive members of the Universal community of beings.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Krispy Crème Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it, add some sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to size 14. So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side.  And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said, "I have sent you healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.

God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food."

God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man gained yet many more pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger and then said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied, "Yes! And Super Size them!" And Satan said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest. God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery. Then Satan created HMOs. (Health Maintenance Organizations)

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