WHAT DO 71 YEAR OLDS DO? BE AN ANGEL.

TINY BUBBLES BRUCE AND WAYNEON JULY 30 MY TWIN BROTHER AND I TURNED 71 YEARS OLD. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN??? AS A CONTINUED SURVIVOR OF ONGOING PANCREATIC CANCER, I STILL HAVE MUCH TO DO, SEE, EXPERIENCE AND JUST BE THERE WHEREVER THE GOOD LORD WANTS ME. THAT MEANS BEING A GOOD ANGEL IN WHATEVER WAY I CAN, BE USEFUL, BE OF SERVICE, PARTICIPATE IN ONGOING LIFE SITUATIONS AND CHALLENGES.
THERE ARE ANGELS IN OUR MIST. THEY HELP US THROUGH DIFFICULT AND AWKWARD TIMES, LEND US A HELPING HAND, PREVENT US FROM ACCIDENTS AND DOING OURSELVES IN, PROVIDE UNEXPECTED JOY AND POSSIBILITIES FOR FUTURE SUPPORT AND GIVE US HOPE IN TIGHT SITUATIONS. FOR EXAMPLE, ON MY TRIP FROM A 5 WEEK STAY IN HONG KONG CHINA TO SAN FRANCISCO CALIFORNIA, I SAT NEXT TO A WOMAN WHO WAS INVOLVED WITH BUILDING ORPHANAGES FOR CHILDREN ABANDONED AND SOLD FOR TRADE IN MALASIA. MY BROTHER BRUCE CHAUFFEURS ME TO MY DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS AND LARRY HAS BREAKFAST ME AT DENNY’S EACH MORNING TO HELP ME REGULATE MY DIABETES. HE RECOMMENDED PEPTO BISMUL FOR ME TO TAKE AFTER A SERIOUS BOUT OF PAIN I CONTRACTED AFTER EATING TOO MUCH CAKE AND ICE CREAM ON MY BIRTHDAY. MY NIECE WITH BREST CANCER IS DOING WELL ON HER THIRD ROUND OF CHEMOTHERAPY AND IS SUPPORTED BY MANY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. (ANGELS!) MY NEW MOTHER IN LAW JUST TURNED 94 YEARS OLD AND IS CARED FOR BY IRENE ANOTHER ANGEL.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRUCE!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRUCE!

THIS PAST WEEK I SAW DR BOUCH WHO PRESCIBED ME PSORINUM A HOMEOPATHIC SOLUTION FOR PANCREATIC CANCER AND LICORICE TABS FOR ACID REFLUX. I SAW MY PCP, DR SAINI, WHO ORDERED LABS AND RECOMMEND I CONNECT WITH DR LYNN CHANG FOR A CURRENT PETSCAN OF MY PANCREAS AND LIVER. THE RESULTS WILL ASSIST DR BOUCH IN ADJUSTING THE NUMBER OF ALA INFUSIONS I GET EACH MONTH FROM AMY AT HIS OFFICE IN PETALUMA. DR SAINI ALSO ARRANGED FOR ME TO SEE AN OPTHALMOLOGIST TO SEE IF MY DIABETIC CONDITION HAS AFFECTED MY EYES.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I MUST DO THIS WEEK IS MEET MY NEW GRANDSON, BODHI, WHO WAS BORN ON JULY 2 WHEN I WAS STILL IN HONG KONG CHINA. HE WAS BORN IN THE YEAR OF THE HORSE ACCORDING TO THE CHINESE CALENDAR.

WHAT DO 71 YEAR OLDS DO? BE AN ANGEL.

MY TWIN BROTHER BRUCE AND I JUST TURNED 71 YEARS OLD. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN??? AT ANY RATE, AS AN ONGOING SURVIVOR OF PANCREATIC CANCER, I STILL HAVE MUCH TO DO SEE EXPERIENCE AND BE A PART OF AS ONE OF GOD’S ANGELS ON EARTH. ANGELS ABOUND EVERYWHERE AND IN EACH ONE OF US IF WE CHOOSE TO DO SO. FOR EXAMPLE, ON MY FLIGHT BACK TO CALIFORNIA FROM HONG KONG CHINA, I SAT NEXT TO A WOMAN WHO WAS RETURNING FROM MALASIA WHERE SHE AND MANY OTHERS WERE INVOLVED WITH SUPPORTING ORPHANAGES FOR ABANDONED CHILDREN SOLD INTO SLAVERY BY DESPERATE MOTHERS. MY BROTHER BRUCE CHAUFFERS ME TO MY INFUSIONS AND DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS AND LARRY MEETS ME FOR BREAKFAST EACH MORNING TO HELP ME REGULATE MY DIABETES. LARRY RECOMMENDED I TAKE PEPTO BISMUL FOR SEVERE ABDOMINAL PAIN AFTER I ATE TOO MUCH CAKE ON MY BIRTHDAY JULY 30. RECENTLY, WE CELEBRATED MY NEW MOTHER IN LAWS 94TH BIRTHDAY. SHE IS CARED FOR BY IRENE, DEFINITELY AN ANGEL.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I MUST DO THIS WEEK IS MEET MY NEW GRANDSON BODHI WHO WAS BORN ON JULY 2 IN SANTA MONICA WHEN I WAS STILL IN HONG KONG CHINA.
I CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED AND CARED FOR BY MY DOCTORS WHO ARE ANGELS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT WITH BLOOD WORK, PETSCANS, PSORINUM AND LICORICE TABS FOR ACID REFLUX, INFUSIONS OF ALPHA LIPOIC ACID,B12 SHOTS AND DAILY INSULIN AND ORAL HYPOGLYCEMICS SUCH AS GLIPIZIDE AND METFORMIN.

BREATHE! QI GONG MEDITATION. BALANCE YIN AND YANG. CULTIVATE TAO.

MOST PEOPLE ARE SHALLOW BREATHERS. SLOW DEEP BREATHING CAN DO MUCH TO BRING FRESH OXYGEN INTO YOUR BODIES AND DISSIPATE UNWANTED STRESS, TOXINS AND TENSION. TRY IT. BREATHE IN SLOWLY FRESH AIR, QI AND LIFE AND BLOW OUT UNNEEDED STAGNANT AIR, PATHOGENS, AND TENSION.

QI GONG OR THE ART OF USING BREATHING TECHNIQUES, GENTLE MOVEMENT, AND MEDITATION TO CLEANSE, STRENGTHEN, AND CIRCULATE THE LIFE ENERGY(QI), IS A GREAT WAY TO START AND/OR END YOUR DAY TO BALANCE OUT THE UPS AND DOWNS, GOOD AND BAD FEELINGS THAT COME FROM DEALING WITH CHRONIC ILLNESSES OR CANCER IN YOUR BODY. IT IS ALL ABOUT BALANCING OUT THE MEDICATIONS OR SUPPLEMENTS YOU TAKE, WHAT YOU EAT AND SHOULDN’T EAT, DAILY BREAKS OR NAPS AND MANDATORY ACTIVITIES OF THE DAY IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU STAY AHEAD OF THE CANCER, TAKE IN MORE CALORIES THAN YOU EXPEND TO MAINTAIN WEIGHT, AND HAVE MORE TIME DURING THE DAY AND NIGHT FEELING GOOD THAN BAD. IT’S BALANCING OUT THE YIN AND YANG THINGS IN YOUR LIFE INCLUDING THOSE THINGS WHICH AFFECT YOUR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL WELL BEING AND BALANCE.

TAO. TRUTH ABOVE ONESELF. TRUTH AMONG OURSELVES. THE TEACHING OF THE INTEGRAL WAY AS PRESENTED BY HUA-CHING NI, IS ANOTHER DIMENSION OF HEALTH AND WELL-BEING.

AT THE LAST AAMA SYMPOSIUM IN DENVER, I MET AN MD-TCM PRACTITIONER FROM BOSTON.  WHEN HE LEARN OF MY JOURNEY WITH PANCREATIC CANCER, HE PUT ME ONTO A MORE SPECIFIC FORM OF BREATHING AND QIGONG MEDITATION TO HELP ME ENHANCE AND PROLONG MY LIFE. AS A PREREQUISITE, HE ENCOURAGED ME TO READ THE LIFE AND TEACHING OF TWO IMMORTALS VOL 1 KOU HONG AND VOL 2 CHEN TUAN BY HUA-CHING NI, TEACHER OF THE NATURAL HEALTHY LIFE. THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO PURSUE THE SUBTLE REALITY OF LIFE WHICH IS NOT CONFINED OR LIMITED BY THE PHYSICAL FORM OF LIFE. VERY ENTRIQUING.

I AM VERY GRATEFUL TO STILL BE ALIVE DESPITE MY ONGOING CANCER. I WILL BE HERE TO ENJOY THE BIRTH OF MY GRANDSON BY MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER, ANOTHER GRAND NEPHEW AND GRAND NIECE BY TWO NIECES THIS JUNE AND JULY; ENJOY NEW TRAVELS AND FRIENDS AS WELL AS REVISIT OLD STOMPING GROUNDS AND TREASURE THE PRESENCE OF LOYAL FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ADVOCATES. HERE’S TO LIFE! YOUR LIFE AND MINE! HALLELUIA! AND ALSO, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS, EXPECTANT MOTHERS AND ACTING MOTHERS!

 

IT DEPENDS……….ON YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM OR GROUP,,,,,,,,WHAT YOU DO!

WHERE I TRAVEL NEXT-ALASKA? GERMANY? CARRIBEAN? KOREA? CANADA? PUERTA VALLARTA?  AND WHEN? DEPENDS ON THE STATUS OF  MY SUPPORT SYSTEM AND GROUP BEING IN PLACE WHENEVER I NEED IT.

B.-P’S LAST MESSAGE TO SCOUTS GIVEN TO ME BY A FELLOW EAGLE SCOUT-JH

MY DEAR SCOUTS,

IF YOU HAVE EVER SEEN THE PLAY ‘PETER PAN,’ YOU WILL REMEMBER HOW THE PIRATE CHIEF WAS ALWAYS MAKING HIS DYING SPEECH BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID THAT POSSIBLY WHEN THE TIME CAME FOR HIM TO DIE HE MIGHT NOT HAVE THE TIME TO GET IT OFF HIS CHEST. IT IS MUCH THE SAME WITH ME; AND SO, ALTHOUGH I AM NOT AT THIS MOMENT DYING,I SHALL BE DOING SO ONE OF THESE DAYS, AND I WANT TO SEND YOU A PARTING WORD OF GOODBYE.

REMEMBER, IT IS THE LAST YOU WILL HEAR FROM ME – SO THINK IT OVER. I HAVE HAD A MOST HAPPY LIFE, AND I WANT EACH OF YOU TO HAVE AS HAPPY A LIFE TOO.

I BELIEVE GOD PUT US IN THIS JOLLY WORLD TO BE HAPPY AND ENJOY LIFE. HAPPINESS DOESN’T COME FROM BEING RICH, NOR MERELY FROM BEING SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR CAREER; NOT BY SELF INDULGENCE. ONE STEP TOWARDS HAPPINESS IS TO MAKE YOURSELF HEALTHY AND STRONG WHILE YOU ARE A BOY, SO THAT YOU CAN BE USEFUL AND SO CAN ENJOY LIFE WHEN YOU ARE MEN.

NATURE STUDY WILL SHOW YOU HOW FULL OF BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL THINGS GOD HAS MADE THE WORLD FOR YOU TO ENJOY. BE CONTENTED WITH WHAT YOU HAVE GOT AND MAKE THE BEST OF IT: LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THINGS INSTEAD OF THE GLOOMY ONE.

BUT THE REAL WAY TO GET HAPPINESS IS BY GIVING OUT HAPPINESS TO OTHER PEOPLE. TRY AND LEAVE THIS WORLD A LITTLE BIT THE BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT, AND WHEN YOUR TURN COMES TO DIE YOU CAN DIE HAPPY IN FEELING THAT AT ANY RATE YOU HAVE NOT WASTED YOUR TIME BUT HAVE DONE YOUR BEST.

‘BE PREPARED’ IN THIS WAY TO LIVE HAPPY AND TO DIE HAPPY AND GOD HELP YOU TO DO IT. STICK TO YOUR SCOUT PROMISE ALWAYS – EVEN AFTER YOU HAVE CEASED TO BE A BOY.

YOUR FRIEND,

ROBERT DAVENPOVEU

PAUSE FROM YOUR DAILY ROUTINE. A POST TO MY NIECE AND YOU MY READERS.

WHEN IT HAILS, IT HAILS ON EVERYONE THE GOOD AND THE BAD. WHEN THE SUN SHINES, IT ALSO SHINES ON EVERYONE. SUCH IS LIFE. IT IS A CONSTANT ITCH WITH UPS AND DOWNS. SEEK A BALANCE THAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY CAN LIVE WITH, WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY, FRIENDS AND THOSE WHO ARE IN THE SAME BOAT AS YOU.

JUST HEARD ONE OF MY NIECE WILL BE HAVING SURGERY TODAY FOR STAGE I CANCER WITH LITTLE TIME TO THINK OVER RAMIFICATIONS TO HER AND HER FAMILY. IF YOU CAN, PAUSE AND LOOK INSIDE THE EXTENDED BOX OR OUTSIDE BOX FOR WISDOM AND INSPIRATION. FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION OR GUT FEELINGS BASED UPON WHERE YOU ARE IN LIFE, PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND EMOTIONALLY WITH YOURSELF, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS.

I AM DOING FINE WITH THE HELP OF A WORKABLE ROUTINE, MY FITBIT AND NOOM WALK. I DO QI GONG DAILY TO PROMOTE HOMEOSTASIS IN MY MIND BODY AND SPIRIT, TAKE 5U OF INSULIN LENTE AM DAILY SO I CAN EAT MORE CALORIES TO MAINTAIN AND HOPEFULLY GAIN WEIGHT, TAKE AM GLIPIZIDE 20MG 1000MG METFORMIN 10MG LISINOPRIL MULTIVITAMIN ARTEMISIN CUCURMIN B COMPLEX, PM GLIPIZIDE 10MG 1000MG METFORMIN 3MG NALTREXONE HCL 900MG ALPHA LIPOIC ACID SILLYMARIN SELENIUM. I TEMPORARILY STOP SUPPLEMENTS WHICH CAUSE TOO MUCH DIGESTIVE UPSETS WHICH FORCES ME  TO BE NEAR WASH ROOMS WHEREVER I GO. IT WORKS FOR ME AND ALLOWS ME TO LIVE AS NORMAL A LIFE I CAN WITHOUT CONSTANT DISCOMFORT. WE EACH NEED TO FIND WHAT WORKS WITHIN OUR OWN SITUATION. AS LONG AS THE PLUSES OUTWEIGH THE MINUSES, I’M DOING GREAT.

TODAY AND EVERY DAY I THINK OF IT, I WILL BURN A CANDLE IN MY FIRE PLACE TO YOU MY NIECE AS SOMETHING I CAN DO PHYSICALLY TO WISH YOU A QUICK RECOVERY FROM YOUR SURGERY AND LIFE WITH CANCER (I RECOMMEND YOU READ LIFE OVER CANCER BY KEITH I BLOCK MD). CATHOLICS BURN CANDLES IN CHURCH AND BUDDHISTS BURN INCENSE IN THEIR TEMPLES TO HONOR THEIR LOVE ONES ON EARTH AND IN HEAVEN. YOU ARE IN MY DAILY PRAYERS. UNCLE WAYNE
