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!

WHAT YOU DO NEXT, WHERE YOU GO, WHEN YOU GO, WHY YOU GO, HOW YOU GO NEXT, DEPENDS ON YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM OR SUPPORT GROUP IN PLACE. YOUR SUPPORT GROUP INCLUDES YOUR SPOUSE OR SIGNIFICANT OTHER, FAMILY, FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES, DOCTORS, ANGELS, SPIRITUAL GUIDES, ETC; AND YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM MAY INCLUDE YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM WHETHER IT IS CHRISTIAN, BUDDHISTS, TAOIST, ETC, WESTERN AND/OR EASTERN MEDICINE, AND LOGISTICAL SUPPORT THAT PROVIDES LODGING, FOOD, CLOTHING, SANITATION, AND WASH ROOMS WHERE EVER YOU ARE.  WITH OUT YOUR HEALTH, YOU CANNOT DO MUCH OR ENJOY MUCH.

SO KEEP ON TOP OF YOUR HEALTH BY SUPPORTING, NOURISHING YOUR SUPPORT GROUP AND SYSTEM. TRAVEL OR GO ONLY TO PLACES WHERE YOU HAVE THE RESOURCES TO MAINTAIN YOUR HEALTH AND BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH UNEXPECTED EMERGENCIES. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PROPER ACCOMMODATIONS, WASH ROOMS, SOURCE OF NEEDED MEDICINES AND PEOPLE TO ASSIST YOU WHEN YOU NEED IT.  BE HAPPY AND ENJOY LIFE KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE HELP AND RESOURCES NEARBY TO ASSIST YOU IN MAINTAINING YOUR HEALTH AND ANTICIPATED NEEDS. LIVE FULLY EACH DAY. DON’T FRET OVER THE SMALL STUFF. KEEP THE BIG PICTURE IN MIND.

GOD BLESS YOU AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!  WAYNE

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

ATTENTION DANNY AND SHANNON! THIS POST IS FOR YOU. RESOURCE FOR HOPE

IT WAS A PLEASURE FOR ME AND MY BROTHER LARRY TO MEET YOU BOTH IN PETALUMA THIS PAST WEDNESDAY FOR OUR INFUSIONS BY AMY. IT TURNED INTO A SPONTANEOUS SUPPORT GROUP SESSION FOR ALL OF US WITH RECURRENT CANCER. THANK YOU AMY FOR LOANING ME THE BOOK ENTITLED LIFE OVER CANCER BY KEITH L BLOCK, MD.

IT IS A GREAT RESOURCE OF HOPE AND IDEAS FOR ANYONE WITH RECURRENT CANCER AND QUESTIONS ON WHAT TO DO NEXT. I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK HIGHLY. THERE IS INFORMATION AND RESOURCES YOU CAN USE NO MATTER WHAT STAGE OF CANCER YOU HAVE.

OBSERVE HOW GOD HAS PROVIDED FOR THE BIRDS OF THE SKY AND LILIES OF THE FIELDS. CONSIDER HOW MUCH MORE HE HAS PROVIDED FOR YOU HIS CHILDREN ON EARTH. KEEP THE FAITH AND DON’T GIVE UP HOPE FOR A BETTER DAY.

I AM PRESENTLY ON INSULIN TO HELP ME CONTROL MY SUGARS AND GAIN WEIGHT WHILE I STILL CAN. “OMEGA” MY PANCREATIC CANCER, AND I ARE CO-EXISTING IN A WORKABLE BALANCE WITH EACH OTHER. TRY EXERCISING YOUR LIMBS DAILY TO INCREASE GLUTAMINE FROM MUSCLE USE RELEASE TO PROMOTE NK OR NATURAL KIILLER CANCER CELLS IN YOUR BODY. DON’T GIVE UP HOPE. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING ELSE YOU CAN DO TO PROMOTE LIFE AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY. PEACE AND LOVE, WAYNE
