Uniting the Great Divide

The great divide. The phrase resonates with a certain weightiness of something we can not ignore; of a certain impossibility, or a certain fear that the division will not only remain but that the division may even grow greater. Still, with all that, there is a dream rising from love which yearns for a hopeful union. Someone to rally a force, to build a bridge and join the great divide. But there is also a sense of turning an eye away from the very thing we shouldn't ignore; the great divide. This ignoring is driven by forces of fear-a fear that desires to hold its own camp in place, so to speak. 
In one camp, where the science of traditional medicine is based, the camp is constructed from statistics; from gathering and recording the data according to the rules established by the standard of care and sponsored by the Industry. Standard of care rules that camp. In the other camp, where the alternative world is based, the camp is ruled by certain protocols which must be followed accordingly. 
The individual must choose one camp or the other. No crossing of camps is allowed. Besides, there is no bridge. There are however, planners, rising from love, yearning for a hopeful union.
Check out "Cancer's Cause, Cancer's Cure." The author, Morton Walker, D.P.M., a world renowned journalist, specializes in Holistic medicine. Perhaps one of the bridge builders to cross the Great Divide.

Breathe in Love:Breathe out Forgiveness.

Breath in Love, Breath out Forgiveness. Breathing sounds so simple. We breathe to survive; we breathe in and we breathe out, without even thinking. Yet, focused breath is another matter entirely. Focused breathing takes discipline to set the intention on the breath. Focused breathing invites us within and offers us a moment to quite the mind. Breath invites us to breathe into the unconditional love within each one of us. Focused breathing almost invites a love meditation of release through forgiveness. Each breath offers us the love to forgive ourselves and others of anything less than loving. Each breath opens awareness. Each awareness produces a new dimension of thinking; perhaps even a shift; but hopefully, in the least, a new perspective. Most vitally though, focused breathing offers us a path of love for our healing. Breathe in Love, Breathe out Forgiveness.

Medicine is an Art not a Science

Even with all of our interconnections, we are still, each one, individually, unique beings. That is why Medicine is an Art, not a Science. Yet, we are pooled together when being treated for breast cancer, and probably any cancer for that matter, with a standard of care which includes: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. When I was diagnosed back in 2007, very little information was available on the Internet. We didn't even have Facebook. And, my cancer team discouraged me from doing any research. But, I did it anyway. Ultimately, I made choices for my body. It was my body after-all, and my body didn't want what the doctors were prescribing. So, I refused the chemotherapy treatments. However, even though I eventually followed through with the proscribed radiation treatments and the pharmaceuticals, my decisions alienated me and identified me as a non-compliant cancer patient. Unfortunately, my already weakened immune system, weakened even more. I had to find a different path. So, after I completed the radiation series, I stopped taking the pharmaceuticals and left for the West where I found a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber. I had never even heard of HBOT before, let alone know that almost every hospital has a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber on site to use on burn victims. However, the Medical profession failed to admit that the radiation had burned me. There was no external evidence. With no external evidence, I was told that the burning was just in my head. But the truth is that radiation does burn. And it can continue to burn, unnoticed and slowly, over time, until it eventually burns through the tissues and into the organs. So, I am here now to share what I have learned along the way. Most importantly of all: Remember, you are a unique being. Remember, choices for cancer care are available. Remember, it is your body. Remember, Medicine is an Art, not a Science.
