quotes, Childrens Aids program, Loren Lockman, Raw Benefits

I came across lots of various interesting quotes while sorting through papers yesterday - we are creating a resource center at work.

“Your body is the baggage you must carry through life. The more excess baggage, the shorter the trip.” -Arnold H. Glasgow

“The person who doesn’t take time for relaxation will be obliged sooner or later to make time for illness.” -John Wanamaker

“If we eat wrongly, no doctor can cure us;
If we eat rightly, no doctor is needed.” Victor G Rocine

“The tragedy of life is not death; rather it is what we allow to die within us while we live.” -Norman Cousins

“Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only. Money is not required to buy one necessary thing of the soul.” -Henry David Thoreau

I have come to share my joy truthfully with you. I say, ye human beings, among all the species on Earth, you are the greatest. You are the greatest for you can change your destiny, you can build your destiny, you can enlighten yourselves.” -Swami Rama

“If each of us were involved in some form of positive change, there wouldn’t be enough problems to go around” -Sam Harris, author ‘Reclaiming Democracy’

I listened to an interview with the person who started this Children's AIDS Health Program, yesterday on the radio. They were very young, a teenager.. and very sincere. I love to see young people, or anyone, who are making a difference in the world – involved in positive change.

‘Our goal is not only to educate children with AIDS, but also to educate others to prevent AIDS. Our long-term goal is to build a health care centre in third world countries specializing in AIDS for children. Aside from treatment and education of AIDS, we are an organization that helps children with AIDS to live their life as a kid and not miss out on their childhood. Our secondary objective is to provide one-on-one support for families with children with AIDS. We also plan to expand our cause throughout the world and create global awareness. Activities will be carried out throughout Canada to encourage Canadian youth that they can make a difference. Our mission is to not only educate others with AIDS, but to educate Canadians about the crisis and situation of this disease.’

I am off to a lecture this morning.. Loren Lockman is speaking at Toronto Sprouts (where I work) today from 10-5. –Organic Raw lunch is included. Yay, looking forward to the lecture.. am sure that will be my topic tomorrow.

I was just googling him to check him out b4 I go:

which led me to this – a great list of raw benefits.
This is written by Roger Haeske. He wrote the original list I saw when I first went RAW. I thought, 'no way.. can’t be' .. and gave myself a 2 week test-period.

It was all true.. and I never went back.
