October is often known for scary things making it the best month for cancer awareness. We all know at least one person that has faced this monster.
Some have beaten it back into the dark hole from which it came and others, sadly, were dragged back to that dark hole never to return. This monster can seem at times to be an unbeatable evil force that is spreading like a zombie apocalypse. We pour countless hours and well counted millions into finding new ways to kill this ever growing thing with radiation, poisons, lasers, and surgeries and yet it has continued to grow.
Yes, more are surviving the seemingly random growing attacks due to all the new weapons being created, and yet we are still missing something despite our valiant efforts. Cancer is an evil seed that lives in every cell and much like a weed must be pulled every day as we plant seeds of kindness to starve it out of existence. We must kill cancer with kindness as even the best weapons we create will eventually kill us in the process of winning an ever losing war of destruction. This unrealized truth of mutual destruction may be the scariest thing of all since cancer has no fear of death, as it is death. To win, we must value life more.
Be kind to the most amazing living machine in the world, called your body. Move every day by doing some form of exercise to keep everything in it flowing more swiftly. Breathe more deeply by using your diaphragm to draw oxygen fully into your lungs and push carbon dioxide fully out of your system. Touch the things and people around you more softly to feel the real connection between all things. Eat more healthy raw and straight from nature foods to ensure optimal nutritional support. Drink more freshly filtered water and pressed juices to hydrate fully without excess toxins and sugars. Rest more peacefully to allow full recovery from the daily trials and stresses that come with life. Your body is the vehicle you live in every day for the rest of your life and must be treated as such as there is no way to replace it. The amount of care will show just as it does on a car and there are no trade-ins on this lifetime lease deal, only repair bills and fees.
Be kind to the super computer science can never build or rebuild known as your mind. Think more clearly by staying focused only on the task at hand. Read more purposefully to gain needed information for a better life. See more innocently to enjoy the beautiful wonders that surround you every day. Listen more carefully to fully understand the things being communicated in every word. Speak more sincerely so your words will be understood and accepted with great humility. Sleep more deeply so you can fully process the events of each day. Exercise more briskly to keep your mind and body connected and working in rhythm. Your mind must be challenged everyday to expand its capabilities and your possibilities in life. The amount of stimulation will show with how far your world expands and how long it will continue to expand.
Be kind to the very thing that has filled your body and mind with life, yet will be with you for eternity called your spirit. Believe more truthfully to know the realities that can be hidden through deceit. Trust more willingly so the truth of things can appear more readily. Forgive more freely to remove the burden of hatred from your life. Love more genuinely to accept the love of others into your life. Give more graciously so others will appreciate the gifts they are granted. Create more openly to fill the world with more wonder and joy with the gifts you have been granted. Your spirit is the spark of genius in your mind and the sparkle of life in your eyes from birth, till death, and for the rest of time. The amount of fulfillment is the very thing that will keep you alive every moment of every day and keep you connected to the universe forever.
Cancer is a final death sentence only when you are finished writing your book of life. Many end a chapter to soon while a few start writing again to add an extra chapter or possibly a few. The difference comes with learning to how live and why life matters. Humankind can only be fully realized when the human embraces the kind and they become one for a fulfilled life. Be that kind, my fellow human.
- Be kind to your body. Move more swiftly, breath more deeply, touch more softly, eat more healthy, drink more freshly, and rest more peacefully. Your body is the most amazing machine in the world and it must be treated as such. The amount of care will show every day in every way.
- Be kind to your mind. Think more clearly, read more purposefully, see more innocently, listen more carefully, speak more sincerely, sleep more deeply, and exercise more briskly. Your mind is the super computer science can never build and must be challenged everyday or it will become as smooth and useless as a rock to be tossed away. The amount of stimulation will show every year in every fear.
