Monsoon rains have flooded parts of southeastern Myanmar, killing as many as 20 people and affecting approximately 200,000, many of whom have been displaced from their homes and villages. Samaritan’s Purse is providing emergency relief supplies that our local church partners are distributing to families in the heavily affected areas. We have ongoing projects, including migration education and trafficking awareness training, in some of the impacted areas. The churches are distributing basic food items, drinking water, hygiene kits, and tarps in 48 villages, reaching nearly 30,000 people. We similarly provided flood relief to displaced families in Myanmar in 2015 and 2016 after cyclones compounded monsoon rains to cause catastrophic flooding. This monsoon season, flooding is reported to be submerging homes in up to seven feet of water, as well as producing landslides, blocking roads, and causing electrical outages. The rains also have flooded rivers and overtaken farmland in the Southeast Asian country, damaging families’ food sources. The monsoon season is projected to continue in the region for at least another month. Pray for the safety of displaced families and those who are coming to their aid in flooded conditions. Pray for our church partners as they continue to help families in need in Jesus’ Name.

          Finding Hope in the Ashes of California Wildfires      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Guy Gonzales received a text message from his wife saying four short words: “We just lost power.” He immediately realized that loss of electricity was not the real problem, but that one of California’s worst wildfires was approaching his home. Guy rushed home, knowing that without power his wife Lebra would be trapped and unable to get her car out of the garage. Bypassing three police barricades, he pulled into his neighborhood and saw flames already licking the treetops in his backyard. Within 90 seconds the house was on fire, and his wife and 12-year-old daughter were still inside. There was no time to waste. Guy broke open the garage door, and they quickly loaded into two vehicles and sped out of their neighborhood. As they pulled away, Guy looked back and saw his home burst into a ball of flames. They barely escaped. Guy, a former firefighter, is no stranger to wildfires. He knew this fire was dangerous from the beginning and warned Lebra that this fire was different. “This is a bad one like no other bad ones.” The Carr Fire has already engulfed more than 170,000 acres near the city of Redding, destroyed over 1,100 homes and killed seven people. Firefighters continue to battle the fast and unpredictable blaze. “It was a monster. It all happened so fast.” Guy said. Despite tremendous loss, the Gonzales’ faith never wavered. “We are seeing God’s provision and the pieces of the puzzle that have been knit together years and years before,” Lebra said. “You can’t see how it all comes together until you finally get the missing puzzle piece.” Little by little, Lebra feels like the pieces of the puzzle are linking together. She said that she has never felt more of God’s provision, peace, comfort and even joy. “Samaritan’s Purse came. They worked in the heat and in the ashes. It’s so dirty, but they still came,” Lebra said as she thanked the volunteers. “We tried to sift the ashes ourselves, but we couldn’t have accomplished it alone.” ‘Something for Them to Hold On To' Charlotte Bailey felt that her home was safe, because she lived across the Sacramento River from the Carr Fire. This false sense of security was shattered when she walked outside the afternoon of July 26 and looked up. “As soon as I saw the sky, I knew we had to get out of there. It was awful— I’d never seen that color before. The fire had jumped the river.” A few days later, Samaritan’s Purse sent a team of volunteers to Charlotte’s property to help her sift for anything that might have survived the flames. Her expectations were low that anything valuable could be salvaged, but she held out hope. When Bert Won, a volunteer from the San Francisco area, found a set of military dog tags, he hoped this was something meaningful. As soon as Charlotte saw them, she was overcome with emotion. Her husband, who died ten years ago, served in the Army during the Korean War. These dog tags were an unexpected gift. Throughout the day, volunteers continued to find treasures in the ashes such as her husband’s class ring from the University of Iowa and captains badges from their time serving in the volunteer fire department. The value of these items was magnified by their significance. To Charlotte, these finds were priceless. Being on the receiving end of aid was a new experience for the 78-year-old widow. For 20 years, she served in the volunteer fire department in Kenwood, California and now she regularly volunteers with California Highway Patrol. “I was meant to volunteer. I love it. It’s harder to be on the receiving end, but I’m learning,” she said. “What a joy it is to give to people and love them and help them in their worst times. We can be steadfast, something for them to hold on to.” This week, Samaritan’s Purse volunteers were this steadfast support for Charlotte. Miguel Garcia, the team leader said, “We are here to do two things. One is our task and the other is our job. Our task is to sift the ashes, but our real job is to love on the homeowner.” Charlotte felt this love. While the day was filled with tears and loss, it was also filled with laughter and joy. The volunteers rallied around Charlotte, encouraging her as they served. “I can feel God wrapping His arms around me and telling me that it’s going to be okay,” she said.

G and I decided to take a break from our routine chaos and went  to the movies!   The latest Mission Impossible movie did not disappoint...full of twist and turns plus action packed!  It was worth watching it at the movie house.


I continue to be amazed by the talent of quilters...that is not about quilting!  One of the stitch groups I belong to is hosted at a different quilter's home on a once a month basis.  This past month we were surprised with a "craft" project.  Beads and instructions were given by the hostess on making a scissor fob!!  I have never made one of these and it was sooooo much fun!  And I am so proud of my creation!


I quilt, embroidery and cross stitch but other crafts are not on my list of accomplishment...well, I did paint a barn quilt.  But still...I do love the Pinterest creations and you could not keep me out of a craft store but I am in awe of the ability of a person to create.  You'll see more about some wonderful mail surprises but I couldn't wait to give you a close up of this absolutely adorable mini suitcase created by a subscriber to Quilt Roadies.  I mean...there is a miniature Buttermilk Basin Autumn Harvest Pattern!!!  little bolts of fabric...OMG is it ever cute!

          6 de Ouros      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Bom dia! :-)

Só eu me apaixonei por esta imagem? Eu acho que ela expressa o ponto mais sutil, evoluído e belo do 6 de Ouros: a generosidade, aquela totalmente desprendida, aquela que é doadora e feliz.

Os conceitos de ajudar e receber ajuda (olha a música que eu coloquei no enigma de ontem), de apoiar, a famosa política da boa vizinhança. tudo isso está presente no 6 de Ouros.

Mas eu gosto de destacar um detalhe: de um modo geral, as pessoas parecem estar divididas em dois grupos, os que só saber doar e os que só sabem receber. E normalmente um tem dificuldade de fazer o que o outro faz. E é por isso que este Arcano também é excelente para estimular esta reflexão, que todo ser humano deve tanto ser generoso com os outros quanto consigo mesmo. A generosidade deve ser uma via de mão dupla.

Hoje é quinta-feira, dia da semana regido pelo Grande Benéfico Júpiter, dia de colocar o foco no poder, tanto o meu próprio poder quanto o poder dos outros ou os poderes constituídos. Então, eu poderia afirmar que o grande poder de hoje é a generosidade. E a dica especial do dia é: este pode ser um ótimo momento para pedir algo para o chefe, patrão, pessoa que representa uma autoridade. A tendência da resposta ser positiva é grande!

Que a quinta seja generosa para todos nós!

          КАК БЫСТРО СОБРАТЬ ОБЛЕПИХУ С ВЕТОК      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Чего только не придумывают садоводы, чтобы быстрее собирать облепиху: и проволочные петельки, и срезают веточки-початки, обирая их дома, и специальные ножницы.

Между тем есть промышленный сбор плодов облепихи. Для этого под кустиками расстилают пленку после первых заморозков, и легонько ударяя палками по веткам вызывают осыпание ягод. В результате весь урожай будет собран за считанные минуты.

Другие способы сбора облепихи довольно муторные. Поэтому чаще садоводы срезают веточки-початки, и потом дома маникюрными ножничками обстригают с них каждую ягодку. Это, конечно, развивает терпение, но занимает очень много времени.

Поэтому в ходу изготовленные из жесткой проволоки петельки. Такой петелькой проходят по веточкам с ягодой и быстро ее отделяют от ствола. А собирать ягоды вручную, отрывая ее от веточек, дело долгое, да и удовольствие сомнительное, так как у облепихи есть немало колючек.

Кстати, в промышленности ягоду убирают после заморозков не только потому, что тогда ягоды лучше отделяются от веток, но и потому, что вкусовые качества становятся лучше.

          НЕПРИХОТЛИВЫЕ ЦВЕТЫ ДЛЯ НОВЫХ ИЛИ ЗАБРОШЕННЫХ УЧАСТКОВ      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

На новых садовых участках или на участках, долгое время заброшенных, почва неудобренная. Чтобы на ней что-то начало расти, требуется немало времени и усилий. Однако некоторые цветы прекрасно себя чувствуют даже на бедных почвах.

Бедную почву хорошо засеять неприхотливыми цветами. В дальнейшем их можно использовать для удобрения этой самой почвы. Уход за ними не сложен: в засушливую погоду цветы следует поливать, также временами им необходимо прореживание.

Лихнис корончатый

Чем беднее почва, тем активнее цветет лихнис корончатый. На почве, богатой органикой, он жирует и дает много зелени, цветки при этом образует плохо. У него серебристо-сизые листья, изогнутые побеги и изящные малиновые цветки. В высоту вырастает до 40–90 см. Цветет почти все лето. Предпочитает солнечные участки.

Лейя изящная

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Это засухоустойчивый и холодостойкий цветок с нежным ароматом. Соцветия у нее желтые, с белыми краями. Отдельные кустики вырастают до 45 см в высоту и 30 см в ширину. Цветет с начала июля до самых заморозков.

Маттиола двурогая

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

За сиреневые и фиолетовые оттенки в цветах, которые открываются к вечеру, и яркий аромат это растение иногда называют ночной фиалкой. Она отлично переносит холод и неплохо приживается на любых почвах. Обычно она вырастает не выше 35 см. Цветки распускаются в июне и цветут около месяца. Для цветения в течение всего сезона ее можно высевать с интервалом в 2 недели.

Линантус крупноцветковый

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

В природе линантусы растут на каменистых склонах, поэтому они привычны к бедным почвам, холоду и засухе. Цветет с июля до сентября белыми, светло-розовыми или желтыми цветками, в зависимости от сорта. Листья у него игольчатые, но мягкие на ощупь. В высоту отдельное растение достигает 20–30 см, в ширину – около 20 см.

Анациклус

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Для бедных почв рекомендуются два вида: анациклус булавовидный и анациклус лучистый. Анациклус булавовидный внешне похож на ромашку. В высоту он вырастает до 40 см. Анациклус лучистый достигает 85 см в высоту, цветет желтыми соцветиями-корзинками. Оба вида цветут с конца июня до заморозков. Засухоустойчивые, предпочитают солнечные места.

Крепис красная

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Цветет нежно-розовыми цветками, создавая впечатление капризной недотроги, но на самом деле она хорошо растет на бедных почвах, неплохо переносит холода. В высоту достигает 40 см, в ширину – 15 см. Цветет с июля до сентября.

Арктотис красивый

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Эшшольция калифорнийская

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Эшшольция холодостойкая и засухоустойчивая. Цветки у нее воронковидные, оранжевые, очень красивые, похожие на маки. Побеги у нее тонкие, листья ажурные. В высоту растения могут достигать 30 см. Цветет она обильно с начала лета до самых заморозков.

Синяк подорожниковый

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Голубые цветки в рыхлых соцветиях распускаются в начале июля и цветут до заморозков. Растение хорошо переносит жару и холода. В высоту вырастает до 40 см, в ширину – до 30 см.

Фелиция разнолистная

Неприхотливые цветы для новых или заброшенных участков

Красивое кустообразное растение с яркими голубыми цветками. В высоту и ширину достигает 40 см. Предпочитает солнечные и влажные места. Цветки распускаются в начале июля и цветут в течение 2 месяцев.

          СЛОЕНОЕ ТЕСТО БЫСТРОГО ПРИГОТОВЛЕНИЯ      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ингредиенты:

  • мука – 1 кг
  • сливочное масло или маргарин – 4 пачки по 200г
  • яйца – 2 шт.
  • соль – 1 ч.л.
  • уксус – 2 ст.л.
  • вода – приблизительно 400мл

Важно: Все продукты для приготовления слоёного теста должны быть очень холодными. Яйца, мука, вода из холодильника. Масло или маргарин несколько часов подержать в морозильнике.

Часть муки смешать с 800г натёртого на крупной тёрке замороженного сливочного масла или маргарина. В процессе натирания маргарина следует постоянно присыпать его мукой (не меся).

После того, как весь маргарин перетёрт, всыпать остальную муку и легкими движениями перемешать (не перемесить) его с мукой.

В мерной кружке смешать: 2 яйца, 2 ч.л.соли, 2 ст.л. уксуса. Долить холодной воды до отметки 500 мл. Приготовленную таким образом смесь соединить с масляно-мучной массой, постепенно вливая жидкость небольшими порциями.

Очень быстро замешиваем тесто (продукты должны остаться холодными). Собираем тесто в большой брикет и делим его на 3 части. Каждую часть кладём в отдельный целлофановый пакет и кладём в холодильник минимум на 2 часа (тесто можно приготовить и накануне).

          Как защититься от стаи диких собак      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Как известно, бессчетное количество безнадзорных и бездомных животных, чью численность никто не контролирует, возникло благодаря совершенно равнодушному к этому вопросу правительству. Бродячие стаи собак абсолютно комфортно себя чувствуют себя в условиях современных мегаполисов, став неотъемлемой частью их экологической среды.

По последним данным в одной только Москве от 25 до 100 тысяч бродячих псов. И бессистемные рейды догхантеров проблему не решают. Поэтому, от угрозы столкновения со стаей безнадзорных животных не застрахован никто. И каждый должен знать хотя бы минимальное количество правил, при помощи которых можно избежать нападения или даже отбиться.

  • Вражеская территория

    Во-первых, нужно избегать заходить на территорию, занятую собачьей стаей. Чаще всего такими территориями являются промзоны, порты, свалки и пустыри. Если случайно все-таки попали – вас, скорее всего, уже будут ждать встречающие. Не срываясь на бег, и не поворачиваясь к псам спиной, покиньте их владения.

  • Не показывать спину

    Агрессивно настроенных собак необходимо всегда иметь в поле зрения. Повернувшись спиной, вы разбудите в них инстинкт охотника и спровоцируете их на атаку. Ведите себя спокойно, сдерживая страх, не машите руками и бесцельно не кричите. Положение может спасти зонт – резко откройте его, он увеличит ваш объем и ошеломит собак.

  • Команды

    Если собаки долго не решаются на атаку, стоит проверить их реакцию на команды. Тут главное, чтобы не дрогнул голос. Спокойная, но резкая команда типа «Фу!» и «Гуляй!» может охладить пыл псов, даже если они не приучены к этой команде. Эффективным может оказаться выкрик «Кошка!». Услышав его, стая может потерять к вам весь интерес и заняться поиском более интересного объекта.

          'Building the Benedict Option': How skillet cookies can lead to community      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New York City, N.Y., Aug 9, 2018 / 03:20 am (CNA).- When Christian author Rod Dreher published The Benedict Option last year, it generated a flurry of debate and comments throughout the Catholic and Christian blogosphere on theories of what authentic Christian community is, and what it is not.

But Leah Libresco would rather get down to brass tacks.

Well, actually, she wants to get down to skillet cookies.

She debuted her new book, Building the Benedict Option - a practical guide for building Christian community based on the ideas formed by Dreher - by taping her phone to the wall of her apartment kitchen and whipping up dessert on her stovetop while answering questions via Facebook live.

Among the first of those questions was - why a skillet cookie?

It was something easy Libresco served during one such community-building event that she hosted herself, when she invited several job-hunting friends over for a resume and cover letter writing event, which opened and closed with prayer and included, yes, the eating of a skillet cookie.

“It’s a cookie the size of a skillet, so I don’t know how much justification it really needs,” Libresco told her audience, “but the actual reason for a skillet cookie is what I want people to do when they’re reading my book is I want them to put down the book. I don’t want you to finish it the first time you read it, I want you to put down the book and invite people over to your house.”

The skillet cookie requires minimal prep work and effort on the part of the host, making community-building seem more achievable and taking the pressure off of being Pinterest-perfect, Libresco said.

In his book, The Benedict Option, Dreher notes that the title was inspired by the last paragraph of philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre’s book, After Virtue, in which he wrote about waiting “for another - doubtless very different - St. Benedict” that would save moral society. This new Benedict would help construct “local forms of community within which civility and the intellectual and moral life can be sustained through the new dark ages.”

Critics of the book and the idea have worried the Benedict Option encourages a sort of “head for the hills” mentality among Christians, who see the failings of the present world as irredeemable and therefore flee to the hills surrounding monasteries to prop up what Christian culture they can, leaving the rest of society to rot.  

But as Libresco understands it, what the Benedict Option really means is building what she calls “thick communities” of Christians and friends in any place and circumstance, who can love and pray for each other and can “abbot” each other, in the way that monks are held accountable by their abbots simply because they live with them and are always running into them.

“That’s really my reason for the book,” Libresco told CNA. “There’s a lot of fruitful discussion happening about community but my focus is narrower - it’s not about what you can do when you successfully all manage to move to one neighborhood, or when you set up a school or something like that - it’s wherever you are for the next two weeks or two months, what can you do in that time frame to pray and be with others.”  

It’s about creating opportunities in your life to interact with your faith community more, so that you can love them and pray for them better, she said. It’s about inviting people over and feeding them and praying together even if you think your apartment is too small or your kitchen too messy or your schedule too busy.

“One way Ross Douthat described the Benedict Option is that it’s kind of like a ratchet effect of going one step beyond whatever you’re doing now, and I like that description,” Libresco said. While she would see her Christian friends for coffee after Mass, “we might talk about the sermon, but there we were, friends not praying with each other.”

“So for me some of that ratchet effect is just when I’m with a Christian friend, I ask if there’s anything if I can pray for them for, or ask if they could pray for me, or ask if they’d like to pray together. It’s just like one small notch more in being generous and vulnerable with each other than you’re doing by default,” she said.

In her book, Libresco addresses in practical ways just about every fear or hesitation one could have in event-hosting. House too small? Don’t know what to cook to feed the masses? Don’t want to cook to feed the masses? Don’t know what kinds of things to do or pray together? Libresco has you covered.

“The book is meant to be very detailed,” Libresco said. “For people who think, ‘I just don’t know if it’s possible for me,’ I hope they’ll look at the chapters that are kind of explicitly labeled as a cheat sheet. I think there’s something there that you can adapt no matter what your circumstances are.”

Libresco said she has planned and hosted a variety of Benedict-Option-style events, with some of them being less explicitly Christian, such as a resume and cover letter writing night, and others very explicitly Christian, such as a rosary procession with Marian icons around Central Park to celebrate the new feast of Mary, Mother of the Church.

Asked how the people of Central Park reacted to the unusual procession, Libresco laughed: “I live in New York City, I am never ever the weirdest thing that anyone sees.”

When planning Benedict Option events, Libresco said she just makes sure she is up front with her friends about what will be occurring at the event, such as prayer or a Marian procession, so that no one is surprised and those who are uncomfortable can opt out of any activities in which they would not like to participate.

“I think it makes sense to not limit [these events] to only one category, that you make some broader for all of your friends and you can have some that are more specific,” Libresco said. “We have board game nights, and not all my friends want to come play board games, and that’s fine, and I don’t think that means that I exclude or dislike those friends.”

One of the biggest things Libresco has learned in event-planning is to make events specific. It makes them special, and less skippable, if you’re having dinner for the feast of St. Dominic, rather than having dinner on a Wednesday night, she said.

“It makes it rare so that people aren’t just like, ‘Well I could do dinner, I could not, it’s ultimately replaceable.’ No it's not, it's a feast, it's once a year. If you’re free, come, if not, you’re waiting until next year,” she said.

The biggest mistake one could make reading Libresco’s book is to think of it as a dogmatic, ultimate answer to the problem of community, she said.

“The goal was not to hand you a best event or best practices completely in a box and you just implement it at people,” she said. “The question is how do you leave room for your friends to meet their needs, to leave room for the Holy Spirit, and I think that’s the main thing, there are many ways to love our friends,” she noted.

“The more programmatic it feels... the more any of it feels like it is dogmatism about exactly how to throw a dinner party, the more you’ve gone round the twist a little bit.”

Her hope, Libresco said, is that she provides some concrete and practical tips and encouragement for her readers, who then put down their books and invite people over.

“Set yourself a three-week deadline, and do something with someone, take some small chance that you wouldn’t have otherwise taken during that period of time,” she said.

“And that could be a larger thing like inviting people over to watch ‘Of Gods and Men’, about martyred vowed religious, or maybe it’s that you who feel nervous about being Christian in public and so you pray the rosary [in public]. Do one more thing, take that ratchet step, be generous with your faith and leave room for the Holy Spirit to prompt  you to give what other people need in those three weeks after you start reading the book.”

          Court to EPA: Chlorpyrifos ban is on!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Happy kids

As of Thursday morning, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has 60 days to finalize its ban of the neurotoxic pesticide chlorpyrifos.

This was the ruling of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on August 9. The judges determined that EPA broke the law by allowing continued use of the pesticide despite scientific evidence linking it to harmful impacts on children’s developing brains.

"Children, farmworkers, rural families and science are all huge winners today,” said PAN’s executive director Kristin Schafer in a press statement responding to the court ruling. “Sadly, under this administration it takes judges to force our public agencies to stand up to corporate interests and do their jobs."

The decision was in response to years-long litigation brought by PAN, NRDC, Earthjustice and other farmworker and environmental health organizations.

Bad for children, farmworkers & families

Chlorpyrifos is a widely used and highly-volatile neurotoxic chemical that study after study has shown is harming the development of children's brains. When mothers are exposed during pregnancy, their children are at higher risk of having lower IQs, developmental delays and autism.

In fall 2016, EPA’s own scientists published a follow-up assessment of health risks that found that, through their diet, infants were being exposed to the pesticide at levels 140 times what could be considered safe.

In the same assessment, the scientists also found that farmworkers were exposed at unsafe levels in the field — the chemical routinely sickens workers and sends them to the hospital.

A long time coming

EPA scientists put forward a proposal in late 2015 to withdraw all uses of chlorpyrifos on food crops. But in a controversial about-face in March 2017, former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt called the science on chlorpyrifos "unresolved," and said agency experts will continue thinking about it until at least 2022. This announcement came just weeks after meeting with executives from Dow Agrochemical (now Corteva Agriscience), which makes the pesticide.

This win highlights the importance of the courts under an administration that is consistently prioritizing corporate interests over public health. In the months since Pruitt’s reversal of the decision to ban chlorpyrifos, policy momentum at the state-level in the absence of national action has also been encouraging — Hawai’i recently banned the pesticide in the state, and California scientists recently listed it as an air contaminant and developmental toxicant.

EPA, the court has ruled. You have 60 days.

This gray, brown, celadon, and blue textile that was woven in the town of San Juan La Laguna from locally grown organic cotton. It was dyed with local plants. It is 15 inches wide and 74 inches long. The weaver's name is Isabel. She is a member of a cooperative in San Juan that works together to provide for their families. .

This piece could easily be used as a scarf or a table runner. It could be cut up to make great pillow covers, a table runner, jacket, etc. It is a gorgeous piece.

The last picture is of Filomena showing us how plants are used to make natural dyes in San Juan. I took weaving lessons from her daughter a couple of years ago. It's always so much fun to get together and visit!!

          Book Review: The Complete Guide to Weight Loss Surgery      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Today's guest post comes from our office's newest RD Alex Friel who has reviewed a book for people considering or having bariatric surgery (full disclosure, was provided with a feee copy of the book by the authors)
Thinking about weight loss surgery? You’re not alone. Bariatric surgery has been shown to be one of the most effective treatments for obesity and the number of people who undergo the procedure is steadily rising every year. Here at BMI, I work with many different clients. Some are considering bariatric surgery, others are actively preparing for it, and still more have undergone the procedure and are adjusting to life with a new anatomy. At every stage of the weight loss journey, it helps to be well informed.

Last week I was introduced to a new book written by registered dietitians Lisa Kaouk and Monica Bashaw. It’s a worthwhile read so I thought I’d share it with you. ‘The Complete Guide to Bariatric Surgery’ draws from their experiences as Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) dietitians and the many patients they have counseled over the years. Here’s what I liked:
  • It’s from a trusted source. The registered dietitian (RD) credential means that Lisa and Monica are trained in the science and physiology of human nutrition. Their training and practice is regulated in much same way as that of our doctors and nurses so you can rest assured that the recommendations they make are tried, true, and grounded in evidence.
  • Written in a conversational style, the book is an easy and entertaining read (or at least as entertaining as a book about a surgical procedure can probably be). There’s no jargon and you won’t need a degree in medicine or nutrition to make sense of the topics covered.
  • Because the topics are drawn from the real life concerns and questions of more than 5000 patients, the book provides an honest glimpse into the realities of life after WLS. It’s a useful reference, not only for those who are considering WLS and those who have had it, but also for the friends and family who are their cheerleaders and support system.
  • If you’ve ever anxiously wondered if your experience is normal, this book can provide some fast reassurance. The table of contents allows you to quickly skim questions at a glance and is organized into topic sections that range from ‘Tolerance Issues’ to ‘Hair Loss’ to ‘Emotional Changes and Support.’
  • Much like this post, it’s short, sweet, and to the point. You won’t need to set aside hours of time to get through it.
My only critique is that the authors don't provide much information on additional resources, support groups, or further reading. It’s good to be aware of what’s available. Obesity Canada, for example, functions as a resource hub for professionals and lay people alike. In addition to educational webinars and videos, they also link to tools you can use to access greater health benefits for obesity care. The Bariatric Cookery, run by food writer Carol Bowen Ball, hosts a wonderful collection recipes to try at every stage of the WLS journey. As a former WLS patient herself, Carol’s first-hand experience lends the site a level of authenticity that is hard to top. Finally, a quick search on Google or Facebook will undoubtedly reveal a whole host of virtual WLS forums and support groups. Find one that resonates with you.

The Complete Guide to Bariatric Surgery is available for purchase on Amazon. It’s also available as an e-book at www.baritricsurgerynutrition.com.

Alex Friel, MSc, RD is a nutrition science nerd and one of the newest dietitians to join the BMI team. She’s convinced that everyone has a passion for food (even if they don’t know it yet) and is always on the lookout for her next favorite recipe. Alex spent six years living in Atlanta, Georgia where she completed a BSc and MSc in Nutrition Science at Georgia State University. Much to the chagrin of her dinner guests, she also gained an appreciation for collard greens and okra that persists to this day.

black and white photo of Jell-O Girls author Allie Rowbottom staring directly at the camera

Jell-O Girls author Allie Rowbottom (Photo credit: Willy Busfield)

Allie Rowbottom was holed up in a cabin in Montana several years ago when she started writing Jell-O Girls: A Family History, which was released on July 24, but she didn’t know at the time how a project with “so many seemingly disparate narrative threads” would come together. “I wanted to tell the story of the impact of our cultural push toward domesticity (and later, women’s push away from it), because the cultural imperative to dictate where and how women should fit in a society shapes every single American life,” she says via email the week after the book’s release.

A few years later, when her mother got sick for the final time, the New England–raised, Los Angeles–based writer found a solid scaffolding for the book and began “to connect [these seemingly disparate ideas] for readers.” But it wasn’t easy. “I did waver at times,” she says. Eventually, though, she found her way, using a cultural history of the kitchen, and Jell-O’s place within it, as her throughline. “The kitchen especially can be seen as a historical nexus, in this case, for the history of American feminism.” This is an especially poignant topic for the 32-year-old Rowbottom, whose great-great-great grand uncle bought the patent for Jell-O in 1899 for $450 and sold it 26 years later for $67 million.

Jell-O Girls is at once a memoir, a family history, and an overview of the domestication (and dissolution) of the American kitchen. The narrative covers three generations of women—beginning with Rowbottom’s grandmother, Midge; then focusing mainly on Rowbottom’s late mother, Mary; and later, zooming in on Rowbottom herself—as they battle the gendered cultural expectations placed on their minds and bodies. They’re ordinary American women whose lives were altered by the unwitting inheritance generated from America’s classic dessert and the “curse” that seems to accompany it.

Mary’s presence in Jell-O Girls is an anchor around which much of the other stories are centered. It was at Mary’s urging, and with her help, that Rowbottom wrote the book. And it is Mary’s obsessions that drive the course of much of the action and direction as the narrative progresses. She’s obsessed with ferreting out the family “curse;” she, along with Rowbottom, is fascinated by a 2012 news story out of Leroy, New York, (where Mary grew up and Jell-O long had its plant) in which a group of teenage girls is overcome with alternating fits of frozenness and convulsions. Mary, who came of age in the second-wave feminist era, applies its tenets easily to her own life, unabashedly calling the curse patriarchy and embracing an essentialism that Rowbottom veers away from.

“I feel like essentialism comes from a lack of roundness in how a topic is considered,” Rowbottom says. “It’s myopia, or simplicity, and I think the issues and ideas that fill Jell-O Girls are too complicated to reduce to any tidy argument or conclusion. But I also think there’s room for a little essentialism to be, not arrived at, but considered. I say this because, coming from an academic setting, I noticed how often people would say, ‘That’s essentialist!’ as a way of shutting down a conversation, rather than exploring what essentialism means to the topic at hand.” This nuanced way of thinking is one of the things that makes Jell-O Girls such a powerful book.

The “curse,” essentialist or not, provides a fascinating framework. But for Rowbottom, the curse is more than just patriarchy:

“I’d agree that it’s patriarchy and, more specifically, the patriarchal imperative to keep women silent, separate from ourselves and each other. I also think the curse is trauma [that is] tied in many cases to patriarchy, but also is its own thing. I look back on my mom’s life, I look forward in my own and think about what could be changed if trauma, and the crushing shame it carries with it, could be spoken, dispelled. The publication of this book is bringing that up for me. There’s a voice inside that whispers I’ve done something wrong in telling this story, even as I know it is the truest, most important thing I’ve ever done.”

While these women’s story of extreme financial privilege is unique, Rowbottom makes a convincing case that their story is universal, at least among American women over the last century. For Rowbottom, the curse extends far beyond her family, and is directly linked to the scrutiny and control that society has long asserted over the female body.

Jell-O Girls covers a lot of ground: It’s both personal and political, subjective and objective, historical and deeply interested in the present moment. It bridges seemingly disjointed topics, such as Jell-O and the shuttering of the country’s first chartered women’s university and Jell-O and witchcraft. In the book, Rowbottom writes: “The history of witchcraft, like the history of the domestic-science movement and the Jell-O it loved, is a history of women’s work and women’s relationships.” Remarkably, Jell-O Girls never feels haphazard. Instead, the book feels like a well-told examination of the history of the American kitchen, and alongside it, America’s vision of the role women should play.

“Personally, the idea of where and how women should fit, behave, speak (or not speak) has so shaped my life, and my understanding of my mother and grandmother’s lives before me,” Rowbottom explains. “I have immense privileges, fought for by my feminist foremothers and tied to my race and class and still, I feel pressures every day that are unmistakably gendered and related to how I’m supposed to perform womanhood.” This intimate connection to her material becomes starkly clear when Rowbottom enters young adulthood. Mary attempts to curb the ill-effects of patriarchy on her young daughter’s life; “‘That’s the voice of patriarchy,’ she’d tell me, ‘and it’s our job to tell him to shut the fuck up,’” Rowbottom relays in the book, referencing her battles with an “invisible meanness” perched behind her ears.

It sounds cliché, but so long as women are consumed with reaching those unattainable ideals, or competing with each other; or so long as we are overwhelmed and unsupported, juggling motherhood, money, racism, classism and feminized poverty; so long as we’re conditioned to believe that by speaking our trauma, our truth, we’re doing something wrong, we’re not able to unite against the forces that have oppressed us

But despite her mother’s best efforts, Rowbottom struggles with an eating disorder during her high school and early undergraduate years. She religiously counted calories, establishing a handful of “safe foods,” including sugar-free Jell-O, but later, with her mother’s help, she enters a treatment center and confronts the underlying causes of her disorder. Rowbottom’s Jell-O–eating years stand out, mostly because they feel like a rejection of her mother, a peculiarly personal affront to a woman who spent most of her life disengaging from the brand.

When asked about this, Rowbottom clarifies: “At the time, I was dedicated to divesting myself of anything connected to my mom. I had to shut off our connection to stay disordered. I wouldn’t acknowledge the connection that food had to my mother’s life. I needed to see all food as stripped of its metaphoric meaning. Of course in making it the center of my life, I was imbuing it with tremendous power, though I couldn’t see that yet.”

Does she ever eat Jell-O now? “I don’t…. I really try to stay away from artificial anything,” she says. “But for my book launch party, I made several decorative molds which, at the end of the night, as we cleaned up, my husband and I started drunkenly forking into our mouths. It quickly became gross.”

Jell-O may be her birthright, but by unflinchingly exploring the crystal-hued dessert’s place at the American table, Rowbottom exposes yet another facet of this many-sided narrative: the role that capitalism plays in defining the feminine ideal. While she’s never overt about it, the pernicious influence of capitalism lurks in each Jell-O ad and old recipe she details (especially when ads began focusing on “controlling” the shape of the female figure). The domestic-science movement, which gained popularity following the Industrial Revolution, aimed to “simplify housekeeping, nourish families, and eradicate germs and sickness entirely;” it also demanded a strict perfection of women’s bodies and behaviors. Jell-O was in many ways the perfect conduit for the movement’s impossible ideals of femininity.

As Rowbottom writes, “Salads [often encased in Jell-O] were enmeshed with nature, which was in turn enmeshed with femininity…. Light and decorative, clean and delicate—these were the attributes a salad, and a lady, should possess.” She goes on to detail the long-standing (and ugly) influence of this notion on the female body and appetite. While cultural expectations may have shifted over the decades, something Rowbottom chronicles with expert precision, the problem of patriarchy and capitalism’s control of women’s minds and bodies remains.

Why? “Power,” Rowbottom explains. “It sounds cliché, but so long as women are consumed with reaching those unattainable ideals, or competing with each other; or so long as we are overwhelmed and unsupported, juggling motherhood, money, racism, classism and feminized poverty; so long as we’re conditioned to believe that by speaking our trauma, our truth, we’re doing something wrong, we’re not able to unite against the forces that have oppressed us.” In life, as in her writing, Rowbottom’s insights are brutally honest, and she never shies away from what must be witnessed. Has the family curse been exorcised by writing Jell-O Girls? Rowbottom doesn’t know. She says, “I’ve heard from other women, some even connected to Jell-O in similar ways to me, that have felt really moved by the book, and this feels like some triumph over the curse.”

Rowbottom’s next book takes her far outside the kitchen, though she will continue to explore ideas about “perfection and how it breeds disorder.” While her next book is also a memoir/cultural-commentary hybrid, she’ll be focusing on “the archetype of the ‘horse girl’ and my childhood and adolescence as a competitive horseback rider.” Is it tough to keep the lens so sharply focused on her life? She admits, “After this, I think I’d like to try my hand at fiction.”

          Guys, Busy Philipps Uses an Instant Pot (and Other Things She Told Us) — How I Feed My Kids      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Busy Philipps is the internet's best friend. The actress — and now author — has had a lot going on this year (a movie! A book! A podcast!), but she manages to remain refreshingly honest and vulnerable on her Instagram. When she talks about her kids or the new diet she's trying on Instagram stories, it feels like she's talking to her real-life BFF, Michelle Williams, instead of her massive 1.1 million followers.

As a mom of two girls, Birdie (9) and Cricket (5), Busy navigates the same things many parents struggle with. She worries about Birdie at sleepaway camp and she attempts to make Pinterest-inspired cakes for Cricket's birthday. She's a cool mom, sure, but she's also just a regular mom.

When Busy was in New York this week to talk about back-to-school season in partnership with Tropicana Kids, I sat down with her to talk about the challenges she faces with feeding her kids, her go-to snacks for Birdie and Cricket, and what an average family dinner looks like (sometimes the Instant Pot is involved).

          Nhân sinh tại thế, nếu như muốn liễu giải được huyền cơ của vạn sự trong đời này thì ắt phải tìm được cho mình con đường trở về bờ giác      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kỳ thực, nói là hành thiện giúp người nhưng trên thực tế là chúng ta đang gieo mầm phúc đức cho chính bản thân mình. Câu chuyện về người anh em của tôn giả Mục Kiền Liên sẽ giúp bạn hình dung rõ hơn.

Mục Kiền Liên và Xá Lợi Phất trước lúc quy y Phật Thích Ca là hai người bạn tốt của nhau, đều là đệ tử của thầy Sanjaya. Sau này hai người có duyên biết được Phật Thích Ca nên cùng quy y và theo tăng đoàn tu luyện. Xá Lợi Phất trở thành một trong mười đại đồ đệ xuất sắc nhất của Phật Thích Ca, còn Mục Kiền Liên lại trở thành đệ tử có thần thông đệ nhất.

Sau này, Mục Kiền Liên không chỉ giúp Phật Thích Ca hóa độ 500 quỷ đói mà còn giúp hiền đệ của chính mình. Bấy giờ, có nhiều người nghe lời Phật dạy, cũng hành đức bố thí nhưng lâu ngày không thể nhìn thấy được hồi báo trước mắt mà đem lòng chán nản, buông bỏ niềm tin hành thiện tích đức của mình.

Hiền đệ của tôn giả Mục Kiền Liên cũng là một trong những người đó. Ông đã tích luỹ được tài sản khổng lồ, giàu có nổi tiếng cả vương quốc. Nhưng người này lại rất hà tiện, chẳng chịu bố thí chút gì cho ai, tiền bạc kim ngân đều cho vào kho cất giữ. Tuy đã giàu có khắp vùng nhưng số gia sản đó vẫn không đủ thỏa mãn lòng tham của ông. Ông vẫn muốn tài sản của mình phải ngày càng nhiều hơn nữa.

Sau khi biết rõ sự tình, Mục Kiền Liên đã đến nhà người anh em của mình để nghĩ cách hóa độ. Ngài nói: “Này hiền đệ, đối với vấn đề ăn mặc, đệ chẳng phải là người cầu kỳ, muốn sơn hào hải vị, muốn áo gấm quần nhung gì. Vậy hà tất đệ phải cực khổ kiếm nhiều tiền như vậy?”. Dừng lại một chút, Mục Kiền Liên ôn tồn giảng tiếp: “Đệ nên biết, một người có càng nhiều tiền, càng nhiều danh tiếng thì nguy hiểm cũng càng đáng sợ hơn”.


Sau khi Mục Kiền Liên hỏi như vậy, người anh em của ngài cảm thấy lòng đầy nghi hoặc. (Ảnh: cryptorich.mobi)

Sau khi Mục Kiền Liên hỏi như vậy, người anh em của ngài cảm thấy lòng đầy nghi hoặc: “Vô lý, tiền càng nhiều, làm việc càng dễ, sao lại có nguy hiểm gì được?”.

Tôn giả bèn giảng giải: “Hiền đệ biết không, khi đệ có tiền ai cũng muốn tiếp cận đệ. Giang hồ đạo tặc lớn nhỏ đều muốn chiếm lấy, thế chẳng phải đêm ngày đều làm khổ đệ hay sao? Có nhiều tiền thì những tham quan kia cũng sẽ tìm đệ gây phiền phức. Họ chỉ cần tùy tiện gán cho đệ một cái tội, khi đó đệ có chịu được không? Đệ đừng cho rằng nhà đệ tường kho vững chắc, khóa đồng cửa sắt, chỉ cần một trận lũ quét, một cơn hỏa hoạn thì tất cả của cải của đệ đều chẳng thể bảo toàn. Hơn nữa rất nhiều phú hộ bạc vàng đầy kho nhưng con cháu đời sau đều lụn bại chẳng thể nên người. Con cháu được thừa hưởng gia sản để lại, không biết được sự cực khổ của cha ông khi kiếm được đồng tiền nên ăn chơi vô độ, cờ bạc tửu sắc quá đà, không lâu sau cũng sẽ tán gia bại sản, thân tàn danh liệt. Đệ nghĩ xem những điều này không phải quá nguy hiểm hay sao?

Hiền đệ, đệ lao tâm khổ tứ kiếm cho thật nhiều tiền nhưng lại chẳng thể giữ được mãi mãi cho riêng mình. Hơn nữa giờ đây đệ tuổi đã trung tuần, người ta sớm muộn cũng phải chết, đến khi lâm chung một đồng đệ cũng chẳng thể mang theo. Thứ mà đệ có thể mang theo được đó chỉ là dục vọng, lòng tham và nghiệp lực mà mình tạo nên. Nó sẽ theo đệ như hình với bóng, khiến đệ phải chịu cảnh đọa đày trong tương lai. Khi đó đệ có hối hận cũng chẳng kịp nữa rồi. Vậy nên huynh nói khi đệ còn sống, còn khỏe mạnh thì hãy làm nhiều việc thiện, giúp đỡ người nghèo, bố thí tiền bạc. Đó cũng chính là đệ gieo cây nhân, trồng hạt đức trên mảnh ruộng phúc của mình. Nếu như đệ có thể nghe lời huynh nói thì sau này ắt cũng sẽ được phúc báo vô lượng”.

Sau khi được huynh trưởng thuyết đạo tỏ tường, người anh em của tôn giả Mục Kiền Liên ngộ ra được phần nào chân lý, bèn cho mở kho cứu tế giúp người. Tuy nhiên vì không hiểu được hết hàm nghĩa những lời huynh trưởng của mình nói nên một mặt mở kho cứu người, một mặt ông ta lại cho người đi xây dựng một nhà kho khác kiên cố và to lớn hơn trước. Ông ta tưởng rằng mình bỏ tiền ra bố thí sẽ được đền đáp nhiều hơn nên định bụng một năm sau mình sẽ có được nhiều tiền bạc kim ngân để chứa ở nhà kho mới này hơn nữa.

Một năm sau, khi ngân khố trong kho nhà cũ không còn, ông vội vàng chạy đến nhà kho mới mở cửa ra, chắc mẩm sẽ nhận được kho vàng bạc kim ngân. Nhưng than ôi, khi mở cửa kho mới ra, tất cả đều trống không, một đồng cũng chẳng có. Ông ta thất vọng tràn trề, tất cả gia tài đều đã bố thí hết rồi nhưng giờ đây chẳng thu được chút lợi lộc gì hồi đáp. Mới một năm trước, vẫn còn là một đại phú gia giàu có hiển hách mà giờ đây tất cả trắng tay, thành một kẻ nghèo khó. Anh ta nghĩ tới nghĩ lui, nghĩ rằng huynh trưởng đã lừa gạt mình nên tức giận đến lâm trọng bệnh.

Mục Kiền Liên trong lúc đả tọa, thông qua Thần lực của mình thấy được mọi việc nên tức tốc đến nơi an ủi: “Những phúc báo mà đệ làm đó là không gì có thể so sánh. Nếu những phúc báo này mà có hình có tướng thì cả trời cao này cũng chẳng thể dung nạp, chỉ tiếc nay đôi mắt phàm nhân của đệ chẳng thể thấy được. Bây giờ ta sẽ dẫn đệ tới một nơi để cho đệ nhìn thấy một phần phúc báo nhỏ bé của mình như thế nào nhé”.

Nói xong Mục Kiền Liên liền vận dụng Thần lực đưa hiền đệ của mình bay lên tầng trời lục dục, ở đó có một cung điện nguy nga, lấp lánh ánh vàng kim mới làm. Cung điện này được làm bằng rất nhiều vàng bạc kim ngân, bên trong muốn gì có đó. Có rất nhiều tiên nữ bay lượn khắp nơi khiến cho người xem không khỏi choáng ngợp. Tất cả họ đều đang bận rộn, đi đi lại lại như thể đang chuẩn bị đón tiếp một nhân vật quan trọng nào đó.

Hiền đệ của Mục Kiền Liên thấy vậy mới hỏi: “Đây là nơi nào? Ai sinh sống ở đây mà nguy nga choáng ngợp như vậy?”.

Mục Kiền Liên đáp: “Đệ muốn biết thì hãy tự mình đi hỏi”.

Vậy là ông ta đi dò hỏi những tiên nữ đó. Thấy có người đến hỏi, họ liền cười đáp: “Ngài không biết sao? Chúng tôi đang đợi hiền đệ của ngài Mục Kiền Liên đến. Do ngài ấy xả tâm cứu giúp mọi người nên được phúc báo này, đây cũng chỉ là một phần nhỏ trong số những gì hiền đệ ngài ấy đắc được. Đợi sau này mãn hạn lâm chung, hiền đệ ngài ấy sẽ đến đây làm Thiên vương”.

Nghe đến đây hiền đệ của Mục Kiền Liên mới biết được rằng giúp người hoạn nạn, thật tâm bố thí tiền tài lại có được phúc báo lớn như vậy. Ông ta chạy đến bên huynh trưởng mình mà cảm tạ không ngừng, sau này trở về nhân gian lại càng dụng tâm đi làm việc thiện hơn nữa.

***

Phật gia giảng: “Nhân tại mê trung”, con người sinh ra tại xã hội chính là bị mê mờ mà không thấy được chân tướng của sự vật trong vũ trụ. Vạn vật trên đời có sinh thì ắt có diệt, có nhân thì ắt có quả, và nhân quả tuần hoàn cũng là điều hiển nhiên luôn tồn tại. Chỉ có điều người trần mắt thịt quả thực không dễ gì mà nhìn thấu cho được.

Luật nhân quả dạy người ta ở hiền thì gặp lành, ở ác thì gặp ác. Một người muốn thay đổi số phận, muốn nhận được phúc báo thì chỉ có thể là không ngừng tu chính bản thân, tích đức hành thiện, giúp người khốn khó, thương kẻ thất thế. Bố thí, nếu xuất phát từ tấm lòng chân thật, lương thiện thì quả thực có thể cải biến vận mệnh một con người.

Nhân sinh tại thế, nếu như muốn liễu giải được huyền cơ của vạn sự trong đời này thì ắt phải tìm được cho mình con đường trở về bờ giác. Tu tâm dưỡng tính, trở về với bản tính thuần chân, thuần thiện trong mỗi con người của mình. Khi đó chúng ta mới được mở khai trí huệ, nhìn ra được căn nguyên của tất cả, thấy được nhân quả tuần hoàn là có thật trong vũ trụ này.

          Chỉ cần giữ vững được bản thân trước ngoại cảnh khắc nhiệt, như thế là cảnh giới tinh thần chúng ta lại được nâng cao lên một tầng      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Một dân tộc mà tinh thần không bị suy sụp, thì kiếp nạn lớn đến đâu đi chăng nữa cũng không làm dân tộc đó gục ngã được. Một người nếu có xương sống tinh thần vững chắc nâng đỡ, khó khăn dẫu lớn thế nào đi nữa cũng không đè bẹp họ được.

Nhà tâm lý học nổi tiếng người Mỹ Martin Gardner vốn là một bác sỹ, ông cật lực phản đối việc thông báo cho bệnh nhân ung thư biết thực tế tình hình bệnh của họ. Ông cho rằng, trong số 6,3 triệu bệnh nhân chết vì ung thư ở Mỹ, 80% là chết vì sợ hãi, số còn lại mới thực sự là chết vì bệnh.

Martin Gardner đã từng làm một thực nghiệm nổi tiếng: Để một người tử tù nằm trên giường, nói cho anh ta rằng, anh ta sẽ bị chấp hành án tử hình, sau đó bịt mắt, rồi dùng miếng gỗ cứa lên cổ tay anh ta. Sau đó mở vòi nước đã chuẩn bị sẵn, để nước nhỏ giọt vào một chậu chứa dưới giường. Theo nhịp nước nhỏ giọt từ nhanh đến chậm, người tử tù kia cũng hôn mê đi. Năm 1988, ông công bố kết quả thực nghiệm này. Tuy bị cơ quan tư pháp khởi tố, nhưng ông đã dùng sự thật chứng minh, bảo cho mọi người rằng: Tinh thần mới là cột sống chân chính của sinh mệnh, một khi làm cho một người sụp đổ tinh thần, thì sinh mệnh đó cũng sẽ bị biến dạng, biến mất.

Hiện nay, Gardner là chuyên gia huấn luyện tâm lý cho Câu lạc bộ 3V xuyên Đại Tây Dương của Mỹ. Trước đó không lâu, dưới sự chỉ đạo của ông, một người tên là Belo đã nhất cử thành danh. Tháng 8 năm 2001, người đàn ông này đã một mình trên con thuyền độc mộc xuất phát từ Brest nước Pháp, vượt qua Đại Tây Dương và Thái Bình Dương. Trải qua 6 tháng rưỡi, ông đã đến Brisbane Australia, từ đó lập kỷ lục Guiness một mình một thuyền vượt qua hai đại dương lớn.

Có người hoài nghi, có phải Gardner dùng vận động viên làm thực nghiệm không. Gardner đã phản bác rằng: Tôi xưa nay chưa từng làm thực nghiệm nào, tôi chỉ đang chứng thực tác dụng của tinh thần. Từ kinh nghiệm thành công của Belo, tôi có thể nói với mọi người rằng, người xưa vượt đại dương thất bại hoặc bị chết, họ không chết vì hạn chế về thể lực, mà chết vì tinh thần sụp đổ, chết vì sự sợ hãi và tuyệt vọng về tâm lý.


Nhà tâm lý học nổi tiếng người Mỹ Martin Gardner – Tinh thần là nguồn sống chân chính của sinh mệnh. (Ảnh: pinterest.com)

Gardner công bố lời nói trên mạng, ông có dùng thêm một tiêu đề phụ là: Trên thế giới này, con người ở vào tuyệt cảnh, thì đại đa số tình huống không phải tuyệt cảnh sinh tồn, mà là tuyệt cảnh về tinh thần. Chỉ cần chúng ta không sụp đổ về tinh thần, hết thảy mọi cái bên ngoài đều không đánh gục chúng ta được.

Tinh thần dân tộc là cột trụ mà một dân tộc dựa vào nó để tồn tại, để phát triển. Một người ở trên đời, muốn tồn tại, muốn phát triển thì tinh thần chính là cột sống của sinh mệnh.

Một dân tộc mà tinh thần không bị suy sụp, thì kiếp nạn lớn đến đâu đi chăng nữa cũng không làm dân tộc đó gục ngã được. Một người nếu có cột sống tinh thần vững chắc nâng đỡ, khó khăn dẫu lớn thế nào đi nữa cũng không đè bẹp họ được.

Con người hiểu được tinh thần, đồng thời luôn chú ý nâng cao cảnh giới tinh thần thì sinh mệnh càng thăng hoa, tương lai càng rực rỡ.

Để nâng cao cảnh giới tinh thần, thì chúng ta nên bắt đầu từ những kỷ luật nhỏ trong cuộc sống hàng ngày. Ví dụ, chúng ta biết tầm quan trọng của rèn luyện, nên hạ quyết tâm dậy sớm luyện tập. Tuy nhiên, sau một thời gian, tinh thần không còn hăng hái, những mệt mỏi trong cơ thể, và cái tâm an dật muốn ngủ thêm cứ dần lớn dần, khiến chúng ta bỏ dở. Người rèn luyện nâng cao cảnh giới tinh thần là người chiến thắng được chính mình, vượt qua những thói quen thường ngày như nóng nảy, bực tức, quát tháo, hay cái tâm an nhàn, hưởng thụ sự dễ chịu.

Nhà tư tưởng, triết gia vĩ đại đời Minh là Vương Dương Minh từng nói: “Phá giặc trong núi dễ, phá giặc trong tâm khó”. Khi chúng ta cảm thấy mọi việc không thuận lợi, mệt mỏi vô cùng, thân thể cũng càng ngày càng tệ, mà thành tích rất nhỏ bé, thì chúng ta nên đưa tầm mắt nhìn vào nội tâm bản thân, kiếm tìm những thói quen xấu của bản thân, vượt qua cái ngưỡng tâm cảnh bản thân. Mỗi lần như thế là cảnh giới tinh thần chúng ta lại được nâng cao lên một tầng.

Hoàn cảnh bên ngoài như nhau, nhưng người có cảnh giới tinh thần cao thấp khác nhau sẽ đối xử khác nhau. Trước khó nạn, có người cảm thấy bế tắc, như trời sập, không thể vượt qua, tuyệt vọng, sinh bệnh tật hoặc quyên sinh. Nhưng cùng hoàn cảnh ấy, người có cảnh giới tinh thần cao thì lại thấy khó nạn đó rất nhỏ, nhẫn chịu một thời gian là vượt qua được, nên bình thản đối diện nó, đi xuyên qua nó.

Có thiền sư giảng, tâm bình thế giới bình. Giữ được tâm bình thản thì bão tố ba đào của cuộc sống cũng không làm cho lòng họ gợn sóng.

Phật gia giảng tướng tùy tâm sinh, tướng tùy tâm diệt. Mọi hoàn cảnh xung quanh đều là ngoại tướng, khó dễ, tốt xấu thế nào, đều do cái tâm chúng ta cảm nhận mà thôi. Tâm thấy sợ, thấy khó, thấy khổ thì sẽ bị hoàn cảnh nhấn chìm. Tâm bình thản, bất động, thì thấy hoàn cảnh, khó nạn đó là rất nhỏ, cứ bước tới là vượt được qua.

          Gieo nhân thiện gặt quả lành: Từ kẻ ăn mày thành quan Tổng trấn      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Thời nhà Thanh, có một thầy tướng mù họ Trần vô cùng tinh thông tiểu đạo, nức tiếng gần xa. Ông có một tuyệt kỹ là chỉ cần sờ xương cốt là có thể đoán vận mệnh cho người ta. Khi ấy, vị quan Tổng trấn của Chương Châu vốn hâm mộ tiếng tăm của thầy tướng số nên đã cho người mời ông đến phủ của mình.

Trước hết, quan Tổng trấn để vị thầy tướng mù đoán vận mệnh cho những người khác trước, kết quả đều vô cùng chuẩn xác. Sau đó, ông lại mời thầy tướng xem cho mình, nhưng không tiết lộ rằng mình chính là Tổng trấn. Khi thầy tướng mù họ Trần sờ xem xương cốt trên người Tổng trấn liền nói: Đây là tướng cốt của kẻ ăn mày, căn bản không có gì đáng để nói đến cả. Lúc này các tùy tùng của Tổng trấn đều lớn tiếng trách mắng thầy tướng họ Trần về sự vô lễ ấy, nhưng quan Tổng trấn không hề tức giận, mà chỉ mời ông sờ kỹ thêm một lần nữa. Thầy tướng này lại sờ thêm lần nữa, vừa sờ vừa nói chắc chắn rằng: “Cốt tướng trên thân người này chính xác là cốt tướng của kẻ ăn mày”. Nhưng khi sờ đến phần đầu của quan Tổng trấn thì ông không khỏi kinh ngạc, nói: “Đây là cốt tướng của quan Tổng trấn, trong mệnh phú quý vinh hiển vô cùng”.

Vị quan Tổng trấn vô cùng kinh ngạc, khen thầy tướng số quả là bậc cao nhân, lời nào nói ra cũng vô cùng chuẩn xác! Tổng trấn lúc này mới kể cho mọi người nghe sự tình đã xảy ra thời ông còn trẻ. Thời trai trẻ, ông quả đúng đã từng là một kẻ ăn mày. Một ngày kia, trên đường xin ăn ông nhặt được chiếc túi tiền ai đó đánh rơi, ông liền đem nó giấu kỹ đi, rồi ngồi gần đó chờ người mất của đến tìm. Không lâu sau, quả nhiên có một người tìm đến.


Vị quan Tổng trấn vô cùng kinh ngạc, khen thầy tướng số quả là bậc cao nhân, lời nào nói ra cũng vô cùng chuẩn xác! (Ảnh: pinterest.com)

Ông bước đến hỏi thăm thì hiểu ngay vật người đó đánh rơi chính là túi tiền mà mình nhặt được. Thế là, ông liền đem túi tiền trả lại cho người ta. Người mất của vô cùng cảm kích, muốn biếu lại ông một phần số tiền đó gọi là cảm ơn, nhưng ông kiên quyết không nhận. Người ấy lại hỏi ông họ tên, mong ngày sau có thể đáp đền, ông cũng không cho người ta biết. Bởi trong lòng ông không hề đòi hỏi được người ta báo đáp như thế nào.

Buổi tối hôm đó, chàng ăn mày trẻ tuổi năm xưa đã có một giấc mơ vô cùng sống động. Trong mơ, ông thấy một vị Thần đang thay chiếc đầu khác cho mình. Không lâu sau, ông có may mắn được gia nhập quân ngũ, cuối cùng đã làm đến chức quan Tổng trấn.

Lúc này, mọi người mới giật mình hiểu ra: Thì ra Tổng trấn nguyên là mệnh ăn mày, cốt tướng trên người ông cũng thật sự là cốt tướng của kẻ ăn mày. Nhưng bởi thời trai trẻ ông nhặt được của rơi mà không nổi lòng tham chiếm đoạt, hành thiện không cầu báo đáp, nhờ đó đã tích được đại đức, và chính điều này thay đổi số mệnh cho ông, vậy nên cốt tướng phần đầu của ông chính là cốt tướng của quan Tổng trấn, phú quý vinh hiển vô cùng.

Con người nếu làm việc thiện mà mong cầu báo đáp, thì chính là mang theo tâm hữu cầu mà làm việc thiện. Vậy thì trong con mắt của Thần, loại hành động ấy không được coi là thuần chính. Còn như hành thiện mà trong tâm không cầu bất kể hồi báo gì, chỉ là vì muốn tốt cho người khác, không hề nghĩ đến bản thân mình, đó mới thật là cái thiện thuần chính vậy.

          Italian Street Artist RUN revisits Lower Clapton, London with a new mural      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Street Art Mural in Clapton, London. Painted by Italian Street Artist RUN

A one time London resident, Italian street artist and muralist Giacomo Bufarini aka RUN was recently back visiting London and the artist found some time to paint a new mural in East London.


It's been close to a year since we last saw Bufarini in town, Hookedblog managed to catch up with the street artist on his last London visit when he painted a large scale mural on the gable end of a building in Walthamstow with the E17 based Woodstreet Walls.

Italian Street Artist RUN back in London

Bufarini revisited Lower Clapton, an east London neighborhood where he has been painting murals since early 2012. His first mural painted at this location was in 2012 but shortly after the completion, the piece got defaced by a local resident. The artist returned to create a new piece in 2013.

This second mural was also defaced within a week of it being painted with paint splashed across the mural, possibly the same resident who had defaced the first. Bufarini decided the damage was not that extensive and returned to the site and repaired the damage that had been done.

This retouched mural ran for a number of months after which Run decided it needed a refresh and repainted the whole wall with something completely new in 2014 and again in 2015.

Since he first painted this derelict buildings wall in 2012, Bufarini feels that he has been taking care of this space in Hackney.

He says, “I have painted this wall 5 times in the last 6 years. It’s my spot or is everyone’s place to watch and to make up a story with. Public art is for everyone, the context of art shall reflect the world we live in and make people think. this is made by one individual person, no advert, no product.”

For his fifth and latest mural at this location and the current heatwave we have been enjoying here in London, Bufarini has painted what at first look appears to be a typical European beach scene packed with a mix of people chilling on the beach enjoying the sunshine, playing ball and building sandcastles.

He says, "Today in this hot summer of 2018 with all the chaos in Europe and Africa people chilling on the beach ... Not everybody but mostly".

On closer inspection, we see an overturned toy boat with a number of figurines laying flat on their backs next to the red and bucket and spade. In the distance of the beach scene, we see an overcrowded inflatable lifeboat with a number of people overboard in distress some with life jackets, other without.

The completed mural by RUN can be seen on Downs Road, off Lower Clapton Road.
