Nice Neighbors

Joan Winifred kindness moderation respect

Neighbors impact our health, huh?? (for better or for worse)

It’s a blessing to have nice neighbors in my POV. Thank You NICE neighbors near & far!:)

I am enjoying a late breakfast @ 12:45 p.m. 😉 meaning busy morning no time to eat, or rather just putting off my eating and hunger till now.

Oh, what am I consuming in moderation? Sliced radish, piece of kielbasa with Dijon mustard, piece of Ciabatta loaf and washing it down with roasted dandelion tea sweetened with local neighborhood honey from a neighbor in my neighborhood. The radish and bread came from another neighbor. The kielbasy (yeah, I know it’s spelled “basa”, but my fam growing up always called it keilbasy; go figure?, My Mom’s grandparents were 100% Lithuanian and it was sorta staple yummy food in my house) tea came from my closest neighbor on Earth, Chato.

Which reminds me of a verse:

“In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself, for no man ever hated his own body (flesh), but he feeds and cherishes it, just as the Christ does the congregation, because we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and he will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh.” This sacred secret is great. Now I am speaking about Christ and the congregation. Nevertheless, each one of you must love his wife as he does himself; on the other hand, the wife should have deep respect for her husband.” (Ephesians 5:28-33.)

books, books, books, and crooks

choice humility Joan Winifred knowledge literacy logic mind food moderation motivation patience spiritual food trust Truth

There is an over-whelming, exhaustive-flood of so-called “information”… a raging mud-flood of a virtual-kind on-line–the internet/the media, in print, etc….caution is needed… so as not to drown!! And to stay afloat/alive in the pure-*sea-of-Accuracy!!:)

(*Sea/see…positive results aka wisdom is proved true by clear evidence.)

(That’s where i choose to swim (*see results); in safe waters (of accuracy) without sharks, snakes, profiteers, etc., Piranha!-OUCH.)

am very selective about my mind-food…(If we are what we eat, i wanna be sweet and not bitter!😉 and healthy, happy, and hopeful. 🙂

{So much so-called “information” “knowledge” is tainted by bias, self-serving-opinion, and extreme-emotion or my POV;)}

i thoroughly “respect” this ancient-Biblical warning:

The words of the wise are like oxgoads, and their collected sayings are like firmly embedded nails; they have been given from one shepherd. 12 As for anything besides these, my son, be warned: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion to them is wearisome to the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12:12…

3 “Curiosity has long been a human trait. The dangers of wasting too much time in the pursuit of useless or even harmful information were recognized back in the days of King Solomon.”

i am a learner… and value study/research–“accuracy” every day: to aid in sound-balanced-accurate decision-making that doesn’t endanger/hurt my life or fellow-fragile-life or cut it short..

 Some individuals have become information addicts, always feeding an insatiable desire to be up-to-date while neglecting more important things. Others acquire partial information about complex fields of knowledge and then view themselves as experts. Based on only a limited understanding, they may make crucial decisions that can cause harm to themselves or to others. And always present is the danger of exposure to false or inaccurate information. There is often no reliable way to verify that the flood of information is accurate and balanced. w 5/1/00 par. 2

Is it a “trap” to fall into mind-binge-eating?! Is one mind/one stomach “actually” capable of or have legitimate accessibility to all known mind-food out there?! Does the “arrogant” mind-binger say… “hmmm, I know-it-all because I’ve eaten it all…the (junk??) food out there/readily available aka anything/everything I can get my mind on… and am now left empty or with sour stomach/indigestion or worse (and unsatisfied and still hungry)… so (is it “reasonable” for the junk-food mind-binger to conclude), there must not exist “any” healthy, whole, nutritious, satisfying-truth-food?!”

Just like physical food choices have short/long-term positive or negative health affects…

 Personally, my mind-appetite is always satisfied by scripture…

16 I applied my heart to acquire wisdom and to see all the activity* happening on the earth,+ even going without sleep day and night.* 17 Then I considered all the work of the true God, and I realized that mankind cannot comprehend what happens under the sun.+ No matter how hard men try, they cannot comprehend it. Even if they claim that they are wise enough to know, they cannot really comprehend it.+ Ecclesiastes chapter 8.

{Perhaps? Post to be continued…idk.}

Momentary thrills and Life-time disabilities

clean compassion conscientious-ness healing insights Joan Winifred joy mind food moderation

Heard this sobering point made in a thought-provoking talk… “some of us give up a LOT to gain a little or lose a lot for very little.”

A ? for reflection…[what am i potentially forfeiting? (And why? Is it worth it?)]

For example…a recent read: (my highlight)

VIEW YOUR BODY AND YOUR LIFE AS PRECIOUS GIFTS. “By [God] we have life and move and exist.” (Acts 17:28) Appreciating that fact moves us to avoid taking needless risks, whether we are at work, driving, or choosing our recreation. A momentary thrill is not worth a life of disability!

Respect Earth, Respect Body… don’t pollute!:)

DO NOT POLLUTE YOUR BODY. “Let us cleanse ourselves of every defilement of flesh and spirit.” (2 Corinthians 7:1) People defile their bodies when they chew or smoke tobacco or abuse alcohol or drugs. Smoking, for example, “leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body,” says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

BE “MODERATE IN HABITS.” (1 Timothy 3:2, 11) Habitually eating or drinking to excess is obviously bad for our health​—not to mention our finances! “Do not be among those who drink too much wine, among those who gorge themselves on meat, for a drunkard and a glutton will come to poverty.”​—Proverbs 23:20, 21. [excerpts: Awake No. 1 2018, The Way of Happiness/Physical Health & Resilience

 All the so-called “gift” giving and “merry” making this time of year… is it actually healthy for the body or the Earth??

{Personally, am not into “compulsory” forced-giving, over-commercialism, and over-indulgences.}

Real Peace & Good Cheer… is found in living moderation!:)
