Friends & Enemies of Christmas #Christmasnaysayers #yournewstory #Spirituality

I’m putting together a Christmas Eve program. I have been shocked at the people who say, “I hope you’re not going to sing… “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” or “Mary Did You Know” or “Joy to the World or anything that is too Christian.

I’m thinking, you do realize that this holiday is by definition about Jesus’ birth. How can we NOT sing about Jesus?

What I’m hearing with this banter is that “Does Christmas have to include word Jesus?” This question would come from people who were either disenfranchised from Christianity or people who are from different cultures or faiths that do not believe that Jesus played an important part in the spiritual history books. But, go to your dictionaries for the definition of Christmas!

Has the American celebration of Christmas contained Jesus for the past 50 years, when the economy is literally dependent upon every family spending 100s of dollars every Christmas to keep retail businesses alive? We’ve become a society of Santa Clauses for the holidays instead of looking at the true meaning of this particular holiday, whatever it might be for you.

But, to clarify, if you’re going to go to a Christmas Eve celebration at a church or center, I’d say, you should be onboard with the idea that the word Jesus is going to come up and even be celebrated.

I am willing to open the doors of my understanding to enjoy and appreciate your culture without feeling I have to sacrifice the history of mine. I know this: On Christmas Day, I’m planning a celebration for all faiths. Why? Because I spent the evening before celebrating the birth of Christianity. I want to give everybody a chance to be acknowledged.

In our Center of Spiritual Living, once a month, we have a celebration called the Candles of Faith. In this celebration we light a candle for each of the major world religions and then one large candle for Unity at the end of the celebration.

Unity is where our hearts should be on this holiday and every holiday. Let’s spread some love, light, and unity, instead of being frazzled about trying to get the perfect gift, or worse yet, complain about the word Jesus on Christmas!

Losing Your Memory Is Scary Turmeric Root May Be Your Salvation #facingoldage #yournewstory #tumeric #healthadvice

 

Have You Found Yourself Saying: “I’m having an old age moment” more than you would like, when a name or a word you absolutely should know simply will not come to mind?

You may have tried a few exercises to help increase brain function or taken Omega 3s. From my own deep concern in losing my memory completely, I even did this new exercise created by a Chinese Neuropathic surgeon that involves pinching your ears and breathing with your tongue on the roof of your mouth while bending into a squat. (I taught the exercise to my sister’s husband without her knowledge. One morning she walked into the bathroom while her husband was showering and doing this strange exercise. Of course, he was in full squat with his butt facing sister-ward. They both had a good laugh.)

When I discovered Turmeric Root in a conversation with a new acquaintance a few weeks ago, I feel as if I have regained my mental acuity and also have more energy and vigor than I have had in years. A number of ways to nourish your brain are available, but one special nutrient in particular has shown extremely exciting promise when it comes to supporting your neurological system. Impressive scientific research has shown that curcumin, a unique antioxidant compound found in the root of the turmeric plant, may be one of the most powerful, natural brain-supporting substances ever discovered!

You may be familiar with turmeric as the bright yellow spice that is commonly found in curry powder. A landmark clinical trial involving people with cognitive decline measured the effects of curcumin on the brain. Amazingly, the participants taking curcumin had significantly higher levels of dissolved abnormal proteins in their blood compared to those in the placebo group. This means that the proteins were not interfering with the brain’s memory function. This is great news for everyone! (Stopagingnow.com)

You may be asking, where do I find this Amazing root and how do I incorporate it into my diet. The answer is incredibly easy. If you have an Indian grocery store or a store that carries food from many cultures, the root is easy to find and is incredibly cheap. As a gift from the friend who told me about turmeric, I have 6-7 ounces, which is enough to last me six month, the cost was $3.00.

USING TURMERIC:

Simply peel the root. It’s very similar to ginger root, actually from the same family. It is bright orange. I put a fingernail-sized piece into my smoothie in the morning, which usually consists of:

1/2 avocado

1 banana

1 cup of various frozen fruit; and

1/2 cup of almond milk

Also, every week I make a stockpot with all of my left over vegetables from the week before. I have begun including an inch of peeled and chopped turmeric root to the stock. It has a beautiful sweet aroma that creates a butternut squash taste. Of course, the benefits are as great as the taste.

If you like beans, I love adding a small amount of chopped turmeric root to my black bean recipe. If you’re Latin the flavor is similar to calabaza.

Stay tuned for more uses. Coming soon, my partner David Menton and I are planning to start a Vlog with Vegetable Based enriched recipes from my plethora of fun and easy ways to make food taste amazing. Enjoy!

Human Rights on Election Eve

In all of my life as a voter, I have never felt more frightened of the political possibilities that lie ahead. In general, I am not a fearful person. I tend to believe that Good will always rise up to conquer darkness. But, when the darkness appears to be some of your friends and family, I have to wonder from what magnifying glass my peers and I are looking.

When friends choose fiscal policy over human rights it simply makes me wonder what kind of world in which we live. When people choose government taking choice away from women, this sickens me. When GLBT rights and the rights of all different colors and sizes of Americans are being measured by different rulers, I’m simply outraged.

So, I should not be too surprised when I find myself alienating those I love because they choose to voice their opinions in a way that could never support my lifestyle as a gay man. When the Republican presidential candidate and the Republican ticket wants to repeal my rights as a GLBT person in the first 100 days of presidency, rights that all GLBT people have fought hard to get, this would be like taking away the right to vote for African Americans and women. I get sad inside and want to weep for the masses of people who say they love their gay best friends and relatives, their Latin friends, their wives and children, but have no idea that their vote says so much more than they understand.

I read some Facebook posts last night from my high school acquaintances. All of them had decided to vote for Trump. I was compelled to write a compelling post to share my point of view, even though they may see me as an outsider who doesn’t matter in the big picture. As I suspected, no one’s minds were changed by my one shard of light entering into the misfortune of misguided minds shaped and molded by lies heaped upon other lies.

I whisper to myself, how can you vote for a man who says he’ll make America great again, when he has not paid a cent of a billion dollars worth of taxes he owes that would help each of them and the national debt?

“Who are we to believe?” most are asking. The news eschews truth, the politicians spin truth, and we go to the website only find a myriad of different points of view about truth that no sane person can sort through without feeling deluged by doubt. So, I’m back to my own feelings and my own heart.

I remember other elections when I felt a similar feeling of apathy, perhaps not as intense, but had my doubts about the opinions of friends and family. I know that the day after the George Bush Jr. election, when everything seemed to move back toward normalcy, I began to let go of my fury and forgave those who stood in the shadows of my own truth. I spent more time harnessing myself and waiting for the inevitable ball of fire to drop.

I have never enjoyed debating or fighting. I chose to be a writer so that I could take pen to paper, or in this case, fingers to keyboard, because I know that my opinion is just one. To voice my opinion in a succinct and proper way is my right in this country. I am glad I still have that intrinsic right.
