SMOKINCHOICES (and other musings)

How d’ya pick a favorite color?

Broad interests make it hard to choose

Recently, I became aware of “BENEDICTA” a CD out now which is apparently all the rage and breaking sales records  – in America!  This confounds the experts, sorta — the voices on this are entirely monks; well trained, to be sure — all oriented in music and it shows.  The confusing part to the executive mind is this is ‘all chants’. . . solemn, devotional, heart-felt and sacred sounds from these monastic souls. . . and people are buying it up like its diamonds being given away for pennies.  

It’s not a secret – not telling tales out-of-school or anything like that;  but Americans are not the church-goers they used to be.  In fact, they are staying away from churches in droves.  .  .  .  this could make one worry about the so-called ‘body of Christ’.   (FRANCIS can’t do everything on his own, by himself!)   This has confused the experts, and I can see why.  If humanity has fallen away — how does one account for this evident but peculiar taste in music?  Why is this happening?   Well, “Stuff Changes” I’m prone to reflect.    

Our way of life may alter,  habits change,  affiliations take a different path. . .all varying externals over which we often have no control.  We can try to stay where we are – remain rigid, and perhaps shrivel,. . .or adjust and go with the flow and experience sometimes wonderful and/or exciting new dimensions.  However we travel down that path we’re on, there is inside  each of us  a longing, yearning or even a need for ‘something more’ — there always has been because that’s the way we’re built.  Humans are clannish – we tend to cluster. . we need to belong, somewhere, somehow.  We seek relationship in many ways; close others, peers, sex, family, and for many – the church. All of it works.  Sometimes. . . none of it works! Longing and reaching out or even [so-called] up remains and is with us.  We are peculiar and complicated animals, but so it is.  And we are still around, most doing the best we can.  If there happens to be someone sitting on a sparkling white throne way up there, my bet he/she looks around and chuckles at all the weird entanglements,  smiles and nods approvingly.   This schoolhouse ain’t easy. . .but we’re making it.

 Anyway, it makes sense to me that all of us do that which feels good where-ever and when-ever we can. Part of being sane and healthy.  For some, ‘beauty’ in any or all forms (the arts) draws them;  Music is the dynamic transporter for a great many others. So many choices. . activity of some kind – hobby, craft or other passion. . sports and so on.  

When I read about BENEDICTA, I knew that I needed to buy it for this was one of my dominant preferences for enhancing background ambiance in my home. So I went online and got it.  It is lovely.  Truly like it.    My CD player accommodates  5 CD’s and I have them scatter so that variation, tone and tempo suit me.  Won’t remove any of the five for I LOVE them all better than the new fella in town. . . so I gave it to my son.  He’s not blown away, but he likes it too.  

Just in case others may be kinda on my wave length too, and enjoy ‘soul music’ which lifts, is beautiful, can be used for calming or meditation or turn it up and let it penetrate your cells, whatever,  gonna tell you what I’m using for decades, so here goes:

CANTICLES OF ECSTASY (hildegard von bingen) . . sequentia  [so beautiful,  – orange and blue circles/cover)        

FROM HEART TO CROWN (Rob Whitesides-Woo). . Serenity    [once you hear it, U wouldn’t give it up either]

PATH OF THE HEART  (Max Highstein). . .Serenity       [ just plain magic]                                                                                                        

PENDULUM     (KEVIN KELLER) . . . Lectonic Soundscapes  1999    [Masterful  sounds seldom heard]                          

CHANT  ( Benedictine Monks) . . . Angel        [Mine is 1994,  original in 1973 and was  similar hit as Benedicta]

There you have it.   Try one of them, you’ll probably like it. . .mine is playing now. . you should hear it.                                                            Be happy,       .Jan

Healthy-Hot “abs”? . .here’s how

Clear, doable info for sporting Hot Abs

So what’s the big deal with “abs”?     Plenty!  Unless we’re totally out of it. . .we ALL care.  If we’re 20, svelte and gorgeous – we care, regardless of gender.  As life gets more complicated and the decades pile up. . .perhaps we care even more.  Add to that the pressure to be ahead of the curve and not only remain relevant — but LOOK the part as well,  of course we care.  Maybe nothing says we may be losing it like the flabby gut, the beer belly or looking a few months pregnant all the time . .  .  definately not cool if one is shall we say of a certain age?   Stuff happens!  

Whether it’s lack of knowledge,  peer pressure,  lack of time or ongoing overload of responsibilities. . .which might prevent achieving our ideal self-image, we all care about our appearance because, like it or not,  how we ‘look’ is broadcasting to others ‘who we are’ and ‘how we are’ — what makes us tick and also, the things which matter to us.  Along with all that, we not only choose to look healthy, but to BE healthy as well.  So yeah,   more than hair-style,  our clothes we wear or the car we drive; our health and vitality are pivotal which IS  reflected in our overall reflection.  

What follows here in this email from Dr Mercola is a sharing from his personal trainer who keeps not only Dr Mercola and his entire staff – fit and healthy, but his extended clientele numbering in the hundreds.  It is far better than I hoped for,  as I am one of those ignoramuses who happens to intensely dislike ‘exercise’ – thus do very little of it. Pathetic, I know.  This guy has covered all bases tho, from beginners to super-advanced and he speaks clear, easy to comprehend language which isn’t off-putting at all, and he does all this with specificity to ensure  one understands the importance of each movement

 So I have bookmarked this episode and have high hopes.  If there is hope for me – anyone can give this a try.  Looks good!   Jan

MANDATING “Vaccines”

Guess its just “Bad Karma” in California

Since I grew up in California, and considered it my home — it will always occupy a special place in my heart.  That is where my home, friends and beloved family were.  .  .  and life was good.   So good.  Probably, we took much for granted.  Our beautiful, incredible state was exceptional to say the least.   We had mountains, ocean and endless shoreline,  desert, open country, farming and citrus groves; world famous entertainment of all kinds.  Aside from my too-many-to-count roses, I had also trees;  a Magnolia,  Olive and  Eureka Lemon tree and a Navel Orange  as well.  I used to con my son into using his little red wagon filled with sacks of lemons up and down our neighborhood trying to give away my huge volume of lemons for free. Never could stand to see anything wasted.  Imagine!  Look what we are paying for those things now. 

Tho it may sound like we dwelt on some palatial estate – we didn’t.   We bought an early ’50’s ‘Aldon’ home for $15,275.00 for about 2.5% to 3% interest rate – Marty being a veteran, having the luxury of nothing down. Seems everything was possible then and we were blessed.  Also doers!  That 7500 sq ft property  did seem like our paradise.That same darling home sold over 30 years later for more than ten times that, and 7 – 8 years later – another $100,000.  I point this out to show that we were a know-nothing couple who had little more than a dream or two. We probably didn’t fully understand the meaning of all the choices and “rights” we were living with.  It was easy to be happy, law-abiding and hopeful.    

Los Angeles of course, was the movie capital of the world.   The night-spots of Hollywood were the stuff dreams were made of.  The Garment/Fashion industry was huge in L.A.  And of course, even today California feeds much of our nation.  How stuff changes!  They are dealing with droughts, crippling the farming industry. Pity.  While here in the eastern parts of U.S. we are being all but washed away.  We’re paying heavy costs for our planetary indiscretions. Lets hope “leaders” waken before its too late.  But this is climate change, not ignorant legislation.  

As to that,. . . the reason for this post,  I truly have always admired Jerry Brown.  .  .  a very good man, wise and ethical, devoted to the common good.   He was an excellent Governor back when I lived there.  It is impossible for me to understand [based on what I knew of him], how he could ignore the rights of parents to choose and make any decision they deem best for themselves – especially their children.  This isn’t just some ‘nice-to-have’ thing – – it is OUR RIGHT as citizens.  We aren’t unthinking cattle or waifs needing direction. We are fully functioning, voting THINKERS deserving of respect, choice and privacy!  Particularly in this case, based on unknown carriers “in the state of Florida.”  Since when do we ‘cede’ our rights and be forced to bow down to organized mafioso “Pharmaceutical Greed and Might”?  

It would behoove so-called authorities to understand that this nation of citizens, endowed with inalienable rights, who have means to put you in power, can as easily – can your butts out of power and set about cleansing our laws and procedures which have been eroding our rights and diminishing our way of life and enslaving us to systems not of our choosing.  There was never a time when BIG PhRMA had the power to inflict death and destruction upon our masses and not be liable for the damage they do.  But with their insatiable greed, they have managed to BUY their “untouchable status.”   It ain’t right and everybody knows it.  In the same way that they operate with immunity in manufacturing humanity’s “medicine,”  they claim their product is useful and SAFE.   Because they CLAIM it to be safe, doesn’t make it true – – AS WOULD BE PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW.  But it never gets that far.  Their claims are phony and self-serving — lets call a spade a spade — TRUMPED up! (take that any way you want to).  But they ARE the best there is when it come to hyping their toxic remedies to the choice-less population. . .and to the Physicians peopling the AMA.  

If I were to touch on what I really think about why we are sick and tired and beaten down, . . . I might NEVER SHUT UP so,  please, don’t encourage me to even think about sterilizing our soil, GMO’s,  CAFO’s  ad-infinitum.  Besides, I wanted to ask you to get up-dated with informative Barbara Lowe Fisher and her latest video.   When is she NOT wonderful, honest and fair?

Go for “happy” now, don’t wait!

My quirky nature demanded that I share this with you today, for I am in total agreement with the basic concept expressed herein.  This is an article I found in today’s Columbus DISPATCH and it struck a chord with me.  

Though I may have developed my personal lifestyle and way of being slightly differently,  I don’t really think its relevant to deliberate the issues and variables,  for we are each so unique and seem to attract those experiences to ourselves that enable our growth potential best.  In all things we have choice even when there seems no apparent control over circumstances.  For me, acceptance allows the development of gratitude which is akin to serenity, harmony and strength. . . one could call this happiness. . . the beauty of the blessings of the  “now.”  

How much sweeter life is when we aren’t busy comparing. .  . which  can seem to lead to a sense of lack or not enough.  How much more life is as we sense our oneness with others. .  .   .   and perhaps, align ourselves with activity which grants our nature to flourish and sing.          

I couldn’t agree more with Shawn Achor, the happiness researcher,  and believe the points he makes to be on target.  For I have seen far too many who toil away and yet not realizing their goals, remain unfulfilled, become jaded, negative — suggesting to me their purpose in life isn’t being realized.  Life is a gift and meant to be enjoyed. (NO MATTER WHAT)  When this happens, we are out of balance and probably can’t see the good even when it is there.   Mindset spirals downward disallowing freedom and/or fun.   Sometimes we just stand in our own way and don’t know what to do.   This following article on the benefits of  this process Shawn Achor has discussed here sound like a real winner to me.  Following this plan with those few points he makes can’t help but help turn one’s life around.    

Thank you Shawn,  this old lady is gonna incorporate your advice too.    Jan


To achieve happiness: 5 habits, 2 minutes

With anyone who thinks of happiness as a luxury or as something that occurs after a lifetime of sacrifice on the drive to a goal, happiness researcher Shawn Achor begs to differ.

His mission is to change minds, hearts and lives.   Being happy, he contends, isn’t just about feeling good.

His research has found that simple “happiness habits” — which take no longer than brushing your teeth — make you happier and, as a result, healthier, more creative and productive at work, and closer to loved ones.

Achor, the head of the Good-think research company and the author of The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness, recently shared insights about his research.

Q: Talk about happiness seems all the rage. Why?

A: I think we’re living through twin revolutions. The high-tech revolution allows us to have information at our fingertips at any moment. And hidden behind that is a more powerful one: Because of that technology, we’ve been able to understand the human brain better than ever.

By changing our mindset and habits, we can actually dramatically change the course of life; improve intelligence, productivity; improve the quality of our lives; and improve every single education and business outcome.

Q: Many people see happiness as something to earn later, after you have found success. How do you make the case for the importance of happiness?

A: Happiness is such an incredible advantage in our life. When the human brain is positive, our intelligence rises; we stop diverting resources to think about anxiety.

Our creativity triples. Productive energy rises by 31 percent. The likelihood of promotion rises by 40 percent. Sales rise by 37 percent. These figures are all from studies we’ve done.

Most people keep waiting on happiness, putting off happiness until they’re successful or until they achieve some goal — which means we limit both happiness and success. That formula doesn’t work.

Q: What might readers do to create more happiness in their lives?

A: I’ve been looking at five habits that are akin to brushing your teeth — very short habits that, if you do them every day, will improve your health but also improve your levels of happiness:

• Three acts of gratitude. Spend two minutes a day scanning the world for three new things you’re grateful for. Do that for 21 days. . . . It’s the fastest way of teaching optimism.

• The “doubler.” For two minutes a day, think of one positive experience that’s occurred during the past 24 hours. Bullet-point each detail you can remember. It works because the brain can’t tell the difference between visualization and actual experience. So you’ve just doubled the most meaningful experience in your brain. Do it for 21 days. Your brain connects the dots for you; then you have this trajectory of meaning running throughout life.

• The fun 15. Do 15 minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day. It’s the equivalent of taking an antidepressant for the first six months but with a 30 percent lower relapse rate over the next two years.

• Breathing. We did this at Google. We had them (employees) take their hands off their keyboards two minutes a day and go from multitasking to simply watching their breath go in and out. This raises accuracy rates, improves levels of happiness, drops stress levels.

• Acts of kindness. The final habit is the most powerful. . . . For two minutes each day, start work by writing a two-minute positive email or text praising or thanking one person you know. Do it for a different person each day.

People who do this not only get great emails and texts back, and are perceived as positive leaders because of the praise and recognition, but their social-connection score is at the top end of the scale.

Q: What happiness habits do you use?

A: My wife and I are both happiness researchers, and we’re on the road more than 200 days a year. So we have to put this happiness research into practice, especially with a 1-year-old.

I journal every day, especially when I’m on planes. I exercise every day.

I’m constantly investing in people around me, especially when I feel stressed, sad or lonely.

It’s not the macro things that matter, but it’s the micro choices for happiness that sustain happiness the best.

Cheap Meat costs us way too much!


Film covers the Many Dangers of the Cheap Meat Industry


Want to bring you a truly beautiful documentary done by PBS (via Dr Mercola) which not only speaks of, but actually shows us how and why these  ‘rare breed’  farmers practice their ethical and inspiring  way of life, and why, per their standards, it’s the only choice they find acceptable (even though it is harder and more costly for them to do.)  They are people with ‘humanity’ through and through.  I so enjoyed this and hope you do too.        Jan


Story at-a-glance

  • The documentary “Meat of the Matter” traces the trail of destruction left by the commercial meat industry
  • Many feedlots have filthy living conditions, poor handling, and improper slaughtering, which is not only inhumane, but stresses the animals and compromises meat quality
  • Growing numbers of ranchers are returning to traditional styles of animal husbandry that support the earth and preserve natural resources for future generations

Bernie or Hillary?. . .um. . .

From Bill Moyers: Hillary’s “Wall Street Address”

Since I don’t know how popular Hillary’s  “Wall Street Address” was, because, well — I needn’t belabor the point, I’m just not a Hillary fan, never have been and most definately – never will be.  (For so many obvious reasons.)  Crestfallen as I was at Elizabeth’s refusal to run. . .but accepting her decision as no doubt, a wise one;  became overjoyed with the direction Bernie decided to tread.  There simply is not a better person – – man or woman,  in the world who could do a better job, let alone half as well as he can  with only half trying!     It disgusts me that “smart money” almost treats his effort as amusing.   Believe this is anchored in the fact that Bernie is not part of any “money machine,”  isn’t on the take and never has been in anyone’s pocket.  He is his own man;  is totally transparent, open and truthful. . .and especially knowledgeable which is enormously important. 

Bernie is my “Man”.  .  the one I shall vote for;  but I am not unaware of the enormous chasm between the Clinton machinery and Power base and the unimaginable reaches of their ability to “Control” the financial direction of her candidacy as compared to Bernie’s.  Bernie must rely on us. . .the little guys if he is to have any kind of shot.  Kinda tuff for someone like me who really wants to help, but I can only do my little $5.00 donations as often as I can because one can only do so much with social security (who knew I’d live so long?)   But here is where my faith in our fellow Americans to grow some and muscle our way thru.  My Gawd, we’re all so beaten down with the way Washington has NOT  worked for the so-called ‘middle-class’ – – with everything being controlled by corporate greed and their ability to buy all political machinations to suit their needs while ignoring the needs and demands of the people.  Enuff already!  All it takes is for more to become aware of just how important EACH OF US REALLY IS because we have more votes than they do!  We simply must believe that, kinda organize and just DO IT!  We gotta try for a real human being with a beating heart and soul and the necessary smarts to sit in that Oval Office  

And one more thing, Bernie has gumption, is up to the task — won’t back down from his principles.  His entire life has shown what those principles are, because they are deeply ingrained.  So if we all dug down a little, we can get Bernie where he needs to go to get his message out.  When people hear, see him – they get him and know what to do.  He’s not after personal wealth, just the funds to get from here to there.  Our kind of man.  Go Bernie. . .rise my brothers and sisters,  it is time to start thinking about all this stuff;  if not now – when?              (I’m counting on all of us. . ., Jan)

NO on “FAST TRACK” Why?. .read on. . .

My Comment first:. . and forgive me Mr President

(Important to Americans caring about health, food & fairness)

Because I’ve been an Obama fan from the git-go;  admired the vision he projected for us all, as he ran for President, and of course the courage that he and his family have shown and endured as he attempted to achieve those idealistic goals, being the first man of color.  Indeed!  He has obviously had a hard row to hoe.  Not easy keeping one’s composure and dignity in tact amid slings and arrows and outright, vile, contemptible hatred and bigotry.   No stone has been left unturned  in effort to insure his complete failure.  

And yet — he has accomplished so much and continues to speak to honest issues, always telling it the way it is. That is why one could ‘trust’ him to do the right thing, and by golly he almost always has!  

But now, it is time for all of us to put our energy up front and personal to work to do the right thing ourselves by taking firm action – – loud and clear on this “FAST TRACK” thing.  Have no idea what’s in our president’s mind on this — but it ain’t right!  It defies honoring the constitution, eliminating or more succinctly – circumventing Congress.  Not right!  We need congress. its the way stuff works and it wasn’t always this corrupt (and we can blame ourselves, because we put them there).  

But there’s devious skulduggery afoot that would also become forceful in taking away our rights to reach accord for grievance in a court of law.   But how would anyone know that?  All has been developed and put together by minds of the Corporate Structure, with no input from those of us whose lives it impacts.  IT IS TOTALLY SECRET. Why?  It would NEVER pass muster!  No one has the right to expect this kind of fealty or trust.  

With so much confusion and distrust on this subject, plus those we DO TRUST IMPLICITLY e.g. Elizabeth Warren,. . .Bernie Saunders and many other deep thinkers who have the broader picture available to them are completely outspoken on this.  This isn’t something we can do quickly and clean up later if it doesn’t turn out right – when its done – its done!  The SENATE has already approved it.  We need to demand immediate action from our own congress-person – NOW.   Please listen to this short video from Dr Mercola – about 15 minutes to learn why its so important to our wishes about labeling, GMO’s and a bunch of other stuff we need to understand (like some of those in the TPP work for $0.60 hour).  How about competing with that?  PLEASE LISTEN TO THE VIDEO NOW:. . .link below.           Jan

  Two Urgent Action Items to Stop Corporate Power Grabs and Protect Your Health

Story at-a-glance

  • Fast Track gives the President the right to negotiate and finalize a trade agreement, and then present it to Congress for a yes or no vote. No amendments can be made at that point
  • Revisions in Pompeo’s bill, H.R. 1599 (the “DARK Act”) further expands it. In addition to stripping states of the right to pass GMO food labeling laws, it also preempts any and all state and local regulation of GE crops
  • It’s urgent to push Congress to oppose Fast Track and Pompeo’s bill, H.R. 1599, to protect state and national sovereignty, the US economy, and our environmental and public health


This Could Be the MOST Important Action You Take This Year

Even if you’ve never acted on this before, please don’t miss your chance to help define history – and protect Americans from one of the most dangerous substances ever. We have a rare opportunity to win big if enough people act. If we lose, the loss will be unconscionable.

Osteoporosis gone – 3 mos EEM

Complete Reversal of Osteoporosis after Three Months of Daily Energy Exercises

Francine Weigand was surprised to be diagnosed with osteoporosis in her left hip at 41 years old. Using traditional methods the disease was controlled with medication for the next three years showing no further deterioration, but also no improvement. At that point, Francine attended a five-day Basic Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) Training in Santa Fe, NM where Donna gave her specific recommendations, which Francine did on a daily basis. Three months later, she was thrilled when a new bone density scan showed no signs of the disease and no problems at all with the hip bone.

Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones lose mass and deteriorate structurally, becoming fragile and more likely to break. There is no medical cure, though there are medicines that can be used to stop or slow the progression of the deterioration. Any bone can be affected, but the increased susceptibility to fracture is especially noticeable in the hip, spine, and wrist.

Francine received her diagnosis of osteoporosis when she went to the doctor because she had received a notice that bone density scans were now available through her insurance plan. While she did not realize that she had osteoporosis, she did occasionally have trouble sleeping due to pain in her hip, which she attributed to an earlier sports injury.

The primary care physician she saw ordered the bone density scan and, based on the results, made a preliminary diagnosis of osteoporosis. This was unusual because of Francine’s young age and the fact that the osteoporosis only presented in one hip. At the suggestion of her doctor, she went to see a specialist at Mass General in Boston. He ordered another bone scan to verify the diagnosis. He confirmed that Francine did, indeed, have osteoporosis in her left hip.

The only treatment available was medication–either Alendronate (brand name Fosamax) or Risedronate (brand name Actonel). She had a bad reaction on Fosamax and reluctantly started the Actonel.

One year later, a follow-up bone scan showed that progression of the disease had been arrested, but there was no improvement in the density of the bone. Francine returned annually for two more years and got essentially the same report: no deterioration, but no improvement either.

In November 2006, Francine attended the five-day EEM seminar in Santa Fe and was brought up on stage. Donna demonstrated the impact of Triple Warmer, showing how not only Spleen but other meridians can be depleted by too much Triple Warmer. In Francine’s case, there was a weakness in Kidney meridian. Donna also showed her how the Nine-Hearts exercise can energize the Radiant Circuits to help strengthen Spleen meridian.

But there was more. As Francine describes it: “With a quick glance from Donna, she asked if I had problems with my bones on the left side of my body. As you can imagine, I was shocked that she knew this just by looking at me!” Francine described her condition to Donna and after the demonstration, Donna suggested that Francine do the following homework at least once a day: Daily Energy Routine, flush Kidney meridian, flush Circulation/Sex meridian, flush Lung meridian, and do the Nine-Hearts exercise.

Francine did routines daily. In February 2007, just three months later, she had another bone scan. This time, the scan revealed no signs of the disease, so her primary care physician advised her to get off the medication right away. However, the doctor was not open to the suggestion that EEM may have had something to do with the reversal, suggesting instead that it was probably a misdiagnosis from the beginning. But after Francine asked her to review the original scans, her physician did admit that the earlier scans had shown evidence of the disease. The doctor just “shrugged her shoulders,” Francine said, unable to offer any explanation for the sudden change.

Needless to say, Francine is elated. No more drugs, and the pain in her hip was gone! In her words: “I wish more doctors and nurses were open to working with energy instead of jumping to medications that give little hope.”

Jan’s comment:    

Just wanted to be sure that I have made it clear. . .these stories from EDEN ENERGY MEDICINE (EEM), are always from Donna Eden’s   “Case files” which come to me in emails because I have subscribed to her site (as anyone can).  Just put Donna’s name in the browser or her site – Innersource, and sign up to receive her monthly newsletters.  She has it beautifully organized; one can avail past ‘case histories,’  inquire into learning via classes or books, etc, and even utilize a feature of Q and A wherein one can inquire how best to proceed with EEM processes on your own for a given problem.  Or even secure a certified practitioner to help where it is needed.  

This is a blessing on so many levels.    When I am diligent and do the routines, life is far more comfortable.  Reading her books is a definite joy. . .but if one seeks the benefits of it. . .ya gotta do the work – the necessary exercises. . . the body’s responses are ever-so-rewarding, harmonized and revitalized.  . . . .just sayin’. . 


RUN ON FAT, a letter to. . .

A letter to my 24-year-old-self

Am so delighted to receive this email from Donal O’Neill of the CEREAL KILLERS fame.  I remember how exciting it was when Cereal Killers was introduced to us all and the stir it has caused.  It seems he has changed the meaning of what constitutes a good and healthful diet forever.   His influence [and the docs he worked with] has reached global proportions with the entire athletic community reacting favorably and of course, the nutrition-oriented specialists.  The medical complex may take another decade or two to catch up. . .oops.
