The Body in Simple Language

posted by Beyond Blue

I finally found a book on the human body I can understand! Last night I wanted to read Katherine the story of Baby Jesus again to squeeze the most religion out of these days around Christmas since I fall short on the other 360 days of the year.

But she pulled out “The Voyage of the Micronauts: A Book About the Human Body.” I don’t know where the book came from, but it’s about four microscopic freaky-looking aliens from the planet Xeno who land on an eight-year-old soccer player named Freddy. They tour the outside and inside of Freddy’s body. With each voyage to a new organ I couldn’t help but be fascinated by our human body and all its functions: how a knee scrape heals itself, how we sweat to cool down, how food gets digested, and how messages are sent to the brain. Nine pages into it Katherine fell asleep, but I kept reading and learning.

This blog beliefnet comes out with some amazing information which can be understood by the intelligent and otherwise.
I wish to suggest that unless and until human beings become aware and believe in the fact that their human body is only a thoughoutless vehicle which is controlled by a thought-driven human reality which is known as the spirit or the soul, any amount of information gathered will end up as an academic exercise devoid of any wilful deeding.
If requested I (www.drsreeni.blogspot.com) can prepare some articles which will focus on the true human reality. This information if assimilated by readers keen to independently investigate their true self and the purpose for which they are created to live as a human being, perhaps this knowledge will assuredly make this world a better world.
Our children and future generations deserve a bettr gift.
Warm regards
sreeni

“Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I” wrote US songwriter Lorenz Hart about the feeling of infatuation. It’s blissful and euphoric, as we all know. But it’s also addicting, messy and blinding. Without careful monitoring, its wild wind can rage through your life leaving you much like the

One of my mom’s best pieces of advice: “Hang with the winners.” This holds true in support groups (stick with the people who have the most sobriety), in college (find the peeps with good study habits), and in your workplace (stay away from the drama queen at the water cooler). Why? Because we
