2. Expecting Nothing In Return
Joseph J. Mazzella One of the best lessons that I have ever learned is to never look down on someone younger or smaller than you. They may just be your best teachers in this life. I know that I have learned more about living from babies, small children, puppies, and kittens than I would have believed possible. They have taught me so much about laughter, playing, fun, simple joy, and unconditional love. They have shown me again and again how to truly live and reminded me countless times of how to choose and share love expecting nothing in return. When a baby smiles at you, a little child gives you a hug, a dog comes up to be petted, or a cat curls up on your lap they are offering you their love freely and joyfully. They are not waiting for something in return. If only all of us could learn or relearn to love the way that they do then what a paradise we could create in this world. Just think of love flowing from every heart and soul in this world expecting nothing in return. Just think of people saying, "I love you", sharing a smile, and offering a hug unconditionally. Just think of all of us giving each other joy with a puppy’s heart and a child’s soul. Just think of everyone of us loving each other the way that God meant for us to. Leo Buscaglia once said, "Take whatever people give you. If you appreciate it, hug it, kiss it, and take it in joy, but don’t expect it." It is only when we give love expecting nothing in return that we truly know what love is. It is only when we give love expecting nothing in return that we learn what it means to give and to live. It is only when we give love expecting nothing in return that we fully feel the love that God has for us. May we always love then freely, joyously, and unconditionally. May we always follow the wisdom of our youngest and smallest teachers and give love to the world expecting nothing in return. Joe Mazzella P.O.

3. Find of the week
Early 20th Century Historical Recordings Available as No-Charge MP3 Downloads Inventor Thomas Edison originally envisioned the recording of sound merely as a tool for office dictation, not popular amusement. We know which one ultimately prevailed, however. Still, from the beginning of recorded sound, spoken word was also recorded on cylinders (originally made of tin and about as big as a soft drink can) and sold for educational purposes such as language instruction, exposure to historical speeches, as well as for entertainment (comic monologues and vaudeville sketches). Thanks in part to the generosity of collectors, you can listen to and download more than 6,000 little-heard songs, readings and speeches performed a century ago for free via the Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project's http://cylinders.library.ucsb.edu/ , sponsored by the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). The range of material includes readings by past luminaries like actress Sarah Bernhardt, speeches from Theodore Roosevelt and turn-of-the-century "pop" songs by Anna Chandler and Will Denny. An interesting factoid: Cylinders could contain only a few minutes of audio, which may be the reason why songs of the past and present rarely last longer than four minutes.


4. Wild Trivia
100 Monkeys and the cells that love them. Let me pull your memory back a bit further than 1 billion years. Do you remember when we were single celled organisms, and had to cope for ourselves. Life was hard, life was short and on the whole life was terribly boring. Trillions of individuals came and went before two, or actually one individual had this terrific idea. They said, hey, let’s divide but stick together. The result was the first multicelled organism. It was new, it was fresh and it was the talk of the earth. This tag team beat the crap out of everyone else when it came to finding food and processing it. The trick was specialisation and it was wild. Soon everyone else wanted in and huge organisms

started ploughing across the earth. That must have been overdoing because we've scaled back a bit since then. But the principle is pretty much the same. A little trivia that not everyone knows is that your DNA does not fully make up your organism. Inside your cells is another actual living organism called a mitochondrion, hundreds to thousands of them actually. They reproduce to fill your cells with living colonies and convert energy from organic forms to the usable ATP which is energy for the cell. If they went on strike you would be dead in seconds. These mitochondria divide independent of the cell's division. They are literally an organism within an organism. Possibly this relationship one day started as a bacterial parasite. Today we're still trillions of organisms (cells) lumped together working neatly as a team. However something magical happened somewhere along the way. This team started develop a form of group consciousness that was more than the sum of the parts. Actually it’s also the only form of consciousness the uninitiated human seems to know at this time. The cellular consciousness still exists but is much more subtle, the closest approximation that probably every one knows is the feeling of your heart starting to glow whenever something beautiful happens. This is the consciousness of the heart which is a tangible part of your daily consciousness. (Chinese medicine is much more in touch with the idea that your organs can be considered highly specialised living organisms in their own right and within their own biologic environment.) And humorous interactions where for example the liver and the spleen have some mutual disagreement and therefore are not quite interacting as they should are known from alternative medicine. Now most of you probably have heard some talk about a new time, a new mankind 2012 and such. Consider man a single cell, mankind an organism. And remember what happened the last time. There is nothing new going on. It’s the same principle repeating. Maybe you have noticed that it has become easier to pick up other people's thoughts? A peculiar trend towards polarisation and synchronisation has caused people to perceive themselves as opposites while their hearts desire is still pretty much the same. The internet is a technological precedent for what is to happen where people communicate with each other on another level. The movies are a precedent to when we will begin to share dreams on a massive level. And in fact. These movies came from someone's personal imagination, and grew out to be a huge influence on people all over the world. Because of the matrix we're comfortable with the idea that a world is not what she seems. Due to startrek we're comfortable with the idea of having personal relationships with aliens. Is this accidental? Or is the group consciousness already dreaming and using alternative methods to get the ideas in every individual’s consciousness?

This new level to our consciousness already exists. The variable is to what level we are aware of it. This is where 100 monkeys arrive on the stage. The idea is that if enough people become aware of something then this will filter through the group consciousness and create change in all individuals who are connected to the group. It is called the 100 monkey effect because it was first observed in monkeys. It has also been demonstrated in humans (http://www.istpp. org/crime_ prevention/) though discussions about the experiments validity exist. Now here's my message to you beautiful apes. You can safely assume that mother nature is on the job, and without trying to prove that this group consciousness exists, try to see where it exist. Whenever someone calls and you know who it is. Whenever you know in advance what someone is going to say to the letter. Just think to yourself. I am an ape at the cutting edge of evolution. Smile stay open and try to see more. The idea is that when enough people are aware of group consciousness. When enough people experience group consciousness then the effect is that group consciousness becomes self aware. When group consciousness becomes self aware it will stop to contradict itself. Just like the left hand in a fully integrated person will never attack the right hand. And do not be surprised if out of the blue people start to unconsciously synchronise with you. That which you need is passed from the right hand to the left hand naturally and without thinking. People will answer your questions without them being consciously aware of you actually having these questions. And the best part is that we can once again learn to smile at strangers like children instinctively do. Not everyone needs to understand this. Just enough to tip the balance so the rest will follow a few hundred thousand. We don’t require medication or meditation. We don’t require dogma or doctrine. We just require a little faith that behind the eyes of strangers is something very familiar and very close to us. WILLOW

Here are a few of the more interesting home remedies for insect stings that I've run into over the years. 1. Soak the affected area with vinegar. 2. Put a cotton ball dipped in ammonia on the bite to draw out the stinger and reduce the pain and itch. 3. Smash up a clove of garlic and place the poultice on the affected area. 4. Spread some honey onto a clean cloth. Place an ice cube on top of the honey. Wrap up the cloth and place on affected area, honey side next to the bite. 5. Kill a rattlesnake and then eat some of the meat every day for the next week. (I don't recommend this one since monkeying with rattlesnakes is dangerous, but I included it anyway because it's the oddest insect bite treatment I've ever heard of.) My personal favourite is No. 4. Amazingly enough, the honey insect bite treatment worked wonders for me last summer when a wasp decided to kick my ass for disturbing its territory while I was mowing the lawn. I've never tried treatment No. 5 and have no intentions of doing so in the future.

The vinegar changes the smell of what comes out of your pores to a repelling scent, which the mosquitoes can pick up. *********************** Enzyme Action We all know about vitamins and botanicals. But enzymes are critical to body function, and they are just starting to make headlines. Digestive enzymes are becoming more prominent as the dangers of long-term antacid use come to the attention of consumers and medical personnel. But, there are many other enzymes that make the body function. What do you need to know about them? What Are Enzymes? Described as the "sparks of life" by Edward Howell, MD, an early and prominent enzyme researcher, enzymes are mostly protein molecules that act as catalysts for every single biochemical process in the body, from digestion to tissue regeneration. Without enzymes there would be no life... and when a person's supply of certain enzymes is inadequate, health problems follow. Because each bodily function needs a specific enzyme for activation, somewhat akin to the key that starts a car's engine, the body makes hundreds of thousands of them. However, there are just three main


Metabolic enzymes - manufactured by cells to carry out their various functions. Digestive enzymes - primarily manufactured by the pancreas to digest foods and absorb nutrients. Food enzymes - exogenous (from outside the body) enzymes found in plants and animals, also necessary for aiding and accelerating digestion. The chemist and enzyme therapist Lita Lee, PhD, author of The Enzyme Cure (Ten Speed), why we hear so little about most enzymes and she explained that the reason is simple, good health requires proper digestion and that requires adequate and appropriate enzymes. There is no reason to worry about metabolic enzymes, she says, if digestion is functioning well. So, the focus rightly is on enzymes for digestion. The enzymes that concern us, then, are those created by the pancreas and food enzymes.

Enzymes produced by the pancreas also fall into three categories...

Amylase - digests carbohydrates (a whole industry has grown up around the amylase enzyme lactase, a deficiency of which causes lactose intolerance). Lipase - splits fats and oils into fatty acids.

Protease - breaks down protein into component amino acids. Food enzymes are primarily plant enzymes (more about that in a minute), and include cellulase, another category of enzyme that is found only in plants and which digests soluble fiber. To get the picture of what enzymes are about and why they are so important requires a brief review of digestion. Most digestion takes place in the small intestine, but the process of predigestion actually starts in the mouth. (This will remind a few people about my suggestion that they get rid of their chewing gumas it can exhaust their supply of salivary amylase. LB) Saliva moistens the food, chewing releases enzymes from our food, and the stomach continues the enzyme release. The enzymes that do the work of predigestion are salivary amylase and plant enzymes and these, says Dr. Lee, are the key to a healthy digestive system. Pancreatic enzymes do not take over the job until food reaches the small intestine, and having adequate and appropriate plant enzymes for predigestion not only enhances digestion in general, it also greatly decreases the load that's put on the pancreas, a hard-working organ in the best of times. In fact, she says that enzymes in the mouth and stomach can predigest up to 60% of carbohydrates, 30% of protein and 10% of fat. The catch: Few people have robust digestion and so by definition few have adequate and effective plant enzymes. Many people point to age as the culprit here, with the belief that aging compromises enzyme function, but Dr. Lee disagrees because children often have poor digestion as well. In addition, few people also eat adequate levels of plant enzymes at each meal, which contributes to digestive problems over time. Ideally, every meal should include fruits and fruit juices. Reasons for Poor Enzyme Digestion The problem of inadequate plant enzymes for digestion has come about for several reasons. Although all foods contain the enzymes needed to digest them, enzymes become less effective when heated above 140º F. Hence, much of the enzyme benefit is lost on highly cooked foods. The second factor for enzyme function has to do with pH balances in the digestive system. To be activated, an enzyme needs a highly specific and particular pH balance range. The popular antacid medications, both over the counter (OTC) and prescriptive, directly affect pH balance. A common misconception is that stomach acid is there to directly digest food. Rather, when a person eats, acid comes in to lower the pH balance of the stomach so that it will be the proper environment to activate the digestive enzyme pepsin. If there is too little stomach acid, the pH balance is incorrect and the digestive process is dramatically compromised.

Building Your Enzyme Performance Virtually everyone benefits from improved plant enzyme ingestion, according to scientists. The place to start is with food. Dr. Lee advises eating all foods whole and usually organic, in other words, no processed foods (processing to create shelf life destroys enzymes), no processed "low-fat" items, no reconstituted and certainly, no fake foods such as artificial sweeteners. She staunchly advocates eating meat and fish because protein contributes to a healthy thyroid, and that contributes to healthy enzyme activity. She is strongly against estrogenic foods such as soy because she believes they affect thyroid function and may be carcinogenic. Look for grass-fed meats and poultry, and wild fish. Raw milk and cheeses, especially from goats or sheep, if you can find them, are full of healthy enzymes, but pasteurizing destroys their enzymes, especially ultra-pasteurizing, the process used to make organic milk. Eat raw carrots and salads, of course, but avoid commercial salad dressings. Do not eat cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kale and brussels sprouts raw, because they contain thyroid-inhibiting factors. Cooking these foods destroys the risk to the thyroid. It is best to steam them until brightly colored on the outside. This will preserve some enzyme activity while removing the isothiocyanates responsible for the anti-thyroid effect. Supplementing Makes It Simple Since most people don't live on raw food, Dr. Lee advises taking plant enzyme supplements before each meal. Note: If you have digestive problems, work with a health-care professional who has been trained in enzyme therapy. This person can evaluate individual situations and prescribe a specifically balanced formula of enzymes that will address your needs. ******************** Mind Tease Howie and Jackie are dating at college.

5. Metaphor
Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighbouring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death. The question?....What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end. He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high, as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged. The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first. The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's question thus: “What a woman really wants,” she answered, “is to be in charge of her own life.” Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it was, the neighbouring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding. The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked

what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half. Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or night? Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments? What would YOU do? What Lancelot chose is below. BUT....make YOUR choice before you look at the answer below. OKAY? Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself. Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life. Now, what is the moral to this story? Think about it before you read what is below. OKAY? The moral is.....Let people make their own decisions about the details of their lives or things could get very ugly !!! ********************

6. Goal Setting - Resolutions: We Make 'Em, We Break 'Em Six Steps to Successfully Meet Our Goals By Marsha Jordan 97% of people who make New Year's resolutions abandon them within 30 days. With a failure rate like that, why should I even bother? Am I inevitably setting myself up for failure when I make resolutions? Is there a secret to successfully keeping my resolutions? Maybe I should resolve to gain weight, exercise less, develop bad habits, procrastinate, and watch more TV in the New Year. Maybe I could keep resolutions like those. No, that's not the answer. We need to resolve to do things in the New Year that will make us better people and will improve the world. But you may have reached the point where you don't want to set resolutions for fear that they won't come true. You know the feeling. You resolve to lose weight and get in shape, but you're still 10 kilos too heavy, your belly is soft, and you'd rather eat chips in front of the TV than eat right and exercise. What's the problem? The reason we've failed in the past is that we didn't know how to plan properly. Here are four simple tips to make keeping those resolutions easier: 1. Start with small steps - Don't resolve to lose 20 kilos. Resolve to skip dessert once a week and exercise once a week. After these small changes become habits, implement bigger changes and increase your exercise time. Small successes will inspire you to move forward. If your goals are too lofty, you're doomed to failure. Start small and work your way up to bigger and better things over time. 2. Be specific - Don't set general goals. If you resolve to be a better spouse this year, you don't have a plan; so chances are it won't happen. Think of a specific thing your spouse would like you to do for him or her (like giving a back rub at the end of the day, picking up your underwear, or taking out the garbage without being asked). Resolve to make the effort to do that one thing on a regular basis. Small changes can make a big difference in your relationship. Little things DO mean a lot. 3. Have some accountability. We all need someone who will check up on us. Knowing that someone will ask how I'm doing will motivate me to work toward the goal. Share with a friend what you've determined to do and ask them to check back with you each week. There's a greater chance that you'll put forth some effort when you're expecting to give a report on your progress.

4. Choose to do something that has a payoff. If you resolve to eat more liver this year or to walk 5 kilometres and do 300 sit ups each day, what pleasure will you derive from that? Set goals that will provide a sense of satisfaction upon completion. Determine to do something that you'll enjoy so much that you'll want to continue doing it. Be consistent about rewarding yourself for each accomplishment. Savour the feeling of completion. It will renew your enthusiasm to continue. 5. Focus on only one resolution at a time. Changing one habit is hard enough without overwhelming yourself by tackling half a dozen life changes. Break that one goal down into several smaller goals. As you accomplish each item on your list, you can check it off and move to the next one. 6. Write your goals down and keep them where you'll read them frequently. This way your resolutions can't be forgotten or changed. Don't set a vague deadline like "this year." Specify exactly what you'll do to achieve your goal and a date on which you will have completed that step. Remember that life is to be enjoyed. Living by impossible lists of lofty goals isn't living. Keep it simple and take baby steps. Small successes will motivate you to set more goals and work toward them. Here is one resolution you can easily keep this year. Give some cheer to a sick child in 2007. It's a small step that takes only a few moments and can cost you nothing. The payoff is knowing that you've brought a little more joy into the life of a suffering little one. Visit the HUGS and HOPE web site: www.hugsandhope.org, and read about the kids featured there. Choose a child and send him or her cheery email or post card. That's all there is to it. This is a goal you can accomplish: Make a difference this year -- one smile at a time. Be in the 3% who will achieve success at keeping resolutions this year. And one of the smiles you create just might be your own! --Marsha Jordan hugsandhope@gmail.com ¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»

I decided to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the waste basket under the table, and notice that the waste basket is full. So I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first. But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take out my chequebook that is on the table, and see that there is only one cheque left. My extra cheque books are in my desk in the office, so I go to my desk where I find the bottle of drink that I had been drinking. I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the drink aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the drink is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. As I head toward the kitchen with the drink, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye, they need to be watered. I set the drink down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, we will be looking for the remote, but nobody will remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the lounge room where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I set the

remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do. At the end of the day, the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm bottle of drink sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one cheque in my chequebook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys. Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail. The moral of this story: It's so easy to get distracted. If the above sounds like your day, then there's a good chance that you have 'Drop and Hop' tendencies. I highly recommend you set an alarm to go off every 10 minutes. Each time it sounds, be sure you are working on what you originally started working on. If you are, great! If not, stop what you're doing, and go back to your original task. It's a sure-fire way of ensuring you don't end the day with lots of incomplete tasks. Instead, you'll discover that you're actually getting some tasks started, and completed! ¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»

9. Personal Hi to all, Well I am hoping that you all had a great Christmas and Happy New Year and that you are enjoying our lovely weather, plus sticking to your New Year Resolutions. We had a lovely Christmas, quiet and peaceful. We have also had my daughter-in-law’s sister here for 3 months from Thailand – wow is she a great cook, I have been really spoilt. Now she is gone it’s back to basics. I had a very busy time before Christmas doing a lot of training with Gordon Young in NLP. He really is a great trainer; I certainly picked up a lot from him. We also attended a wedding of our very dear friends in Bathurst. It was a Medieval Had Fasting Ceremony; most of us wore medieval costumes. I was part of the ceremony (I represented North – Fire and had to say a few words) plus Barry, my husband, was the Best Man. The

weather for the day was perfect, it was held on their property which is a very big mountain out side of Bathurst. The view is just wonderful. They had a court jester as entertainment who juggled, told stories, did majic tricks and did fire eating plus a fantastic bush band that played well into the night. I haven’t done the “Pride of Errand” (a type of dance) for over 30 years. Plus of course all the great food and meeting up with friends we hadn’t seen in years. They (our friends) have just bought a boat and tell me we have to learn to sail this year, sounds like great fun. I have a lot planned for the next few months and will let you know as I complete my tasks. I am really looking forward to doing more training with Gordon and I have also booked into a Past Lives Training. Plus I really want to do the 2nd International Conference on Happiness & its Causes, in June, featuring the Dalai Lama. I send you warm fuzzie feelings and good wishes. Thankyou all for being part of my life, TLR Lyndall
TLR stands for Thanks, Love and Respect, and is a way of healing with appreciation by understanding the positive intention of any behaviour and allowing it to "grow up" or mature through appreciation - by thanking, loving, respecting and understanding that part's positive intention, that person's positive intention, that being's positive intention. This is also done with inanimate objects, such as a computer or a home, etc. It seems everything responds to Thanks, Love and Respect. It seems to be a universal way to create harmony and balance.
