Cumin is a tasty
spice that creates a unique and wonderful flavor. It is considered highly medicinal and has been used for millennia throughout Asia and the Middle East. As an energy booster,
cumin is a great source of iron, which helps to maintain healthy energy
levels. Iron improves blood flow throughout the body to increase oxygen
delivery on a cellular level. Regarding cancer prevention, cumin has
been found in studies to have potent anti-cancer properties. This is
probably thanks to its free radical fighting
properties. Free radicals can contribute to cancer development and
growth, so consuming foods and herbs that fight free radicals can help
to prevent cancer and other illnesses. Cumin is beneficial for the
digestive system, helping with the symptoms
of nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, and flatulence. Cumin contains
“thymol”, a compound that stimulates stomach acid production and allows
the body to get maximum nutrition from food. Cumin increases the heat in
the body, boosting the metabolism as well as
improving kidney and liver function. This can help the body get rid of
impurities, which will decrease the chances of disease in the
body.Getting rid of toxins within the body can also reduce the incidence
skin problems. Breakouts such as blemishes, rashes, and boils are
usually a result of the body trying to remove waste in the body and
using cumin may reduce these symptoms because the waste is efficiently
taken care of through the digestive system. In addition to increasing
energy, cumin may also be
beneficial for lactating mothers because it may help to increase milk

Living one’s spiritual Self in the karmic
life environment primarily requires an ATTITUDE CHANGE in living – from the
habitual “I am my physical body and its history” to the new master “I am the inner
spirit, currently responsible for living my physical body and its history.” Such
a change will not happen to last for long unless one’s motivation is right and also
strong enough. After listening to the previous five presentations of “The
Mystery underlying Human Living – Karma,” a motivation out of “Yes, I want to
do it” will not work for the change; only a strong motivation out of the awakening
mind to realize “I should do so” may work continuously until the final
spiritual enlightenment. Belief, aspiration, practice, and achievement (periodical
progress) are the four cycling steps that may continuously help strengthen our right
motivation and also know how to make genuine progress in the spiritual level. Mr.
Tsai will guide us to study these four steps in his next presentation for us on
September 13th (Tuesday) at 2:00 PM
Lacy was invited to present yesterday to create awareness of Traditional Chinese Medicine Meridian System among graduate students within the Physician Assistant Program. She presented two 2-hour sessions to a total of 52 aspiring future Physician Assistants. She presented a basic understanding of the Chinese Meridian System and specific acupressure point treatment considerations for commonly occurring neck, shoulder and low back problems. Making our future health care providers aware of Eastern approaches to medicine, combined with Western medicine, can more thoroughly contribute to finding causes and fixing ailments. Response today from the Program Coordinator indicated "...the information was valuable and the students can utilize it for themselves and patients in the future!"
Lacy responded she greatly appreciated this wonderful opportunity for her to share the
information to expand her mission.

Being spiritual by nature, humans are meant
to return to Heaven. The only way for it is to live the spiritual Self
faithfully in the karmic environment of one’s life and it is a big task of self
transformation. In the last presentation of The Mystery under Human Living –
Karma, Mr. Tsai showed us the guidelines of its process: belief, aspiration,
practice, and achievement. In this next presentation he will guide us to see into the detail of them…

I found this article I'd written about Ligonier last year:
On a snowy December night in 2013 as the wind
whipped outside the windows of Thistledown at Seger House, I was unable to
sleep. My parents who have been married almost sixty years were heavily on my
mind. Mom has the onset of dementia, and Dad still adores her, still treats her
as if she’s the young beauty he married so long ago.
My husband slept soundly beside me while a story
began forming in my mind.
We travelled to Ligonier that weekend for a winter
getaway, escaping the Christmas shopping and hustle bustle of busy Monroeville.
My husband had been working long hours and Ligonier is the perfect retreat for
us, the quaint, charming town with the atmosphere of stepping into a Norman
We’d decided to stay at the newly renovated inn,
Thistledown at Seger House, a wonderful old Victorian building in the heart of
town. It was in that lovely inn with the snow falling outside that a wonderful
golden year romance came to me.
I began thinking about my love for Ligonier and the
historic place we were staying at. What mystery, what romance surrounded it? Or
the whole town for that matter. What if I used the town of Ligonier as the
backdrop for the story in my head? What if I approached not only the innkeepers
of Thistledown, but other shops in town to see if they’d approve of me using
their real store names? For I’d love to give something back to the town of
Ligonier, as I feel they give to me and my husband each time we’re there. When
Jim and I visit no matter what the season, we always take long walks, sharing
stories with one another, bonding over our love of the cozy town. Shopkeepers
and restaurant owners have been amazing, telling us stories of living there,
and their own love and pride of that beautiful place.
Every nook, every avenue, every storefront is a
writer’s delight. My vivid imagination runs wild when I am in Ligonier. Little
by little, the golden romance, the story of Harry and Rose, progressed. Two
people who meet in an independent living center and begin a warm friendship.
Though they both carry secrets and issues from their past, and the relationship
with their children is precarious, their lives become intertwined in ways even
they won’t believe.
On February 15th of last year, a dream
came true for me as a book launch was held for “Love Woven in Time: A Ligonier
Golden Romance” at Thistledown at Seger House, the very place the idea for the
book had come to me. In the charming sitting room of the inn, over thirty
people ventured out on one of the most bitterly cold days of this winter. As I
would find, it would take a lot more than a few snowflakes and below zero
temperatures to keep hearty Ligonier people away. Everyone was cheerful on this
cold day as I handed out a small gift to each person who attended: a hand-dried
rose, in honor of the main character, and chocolates for Valentine’s weekend.
We had a hearty, hot apple cider drink, lime punch, and homemade chocolate chip
and Italian orange cookies. A giveaway of three baskets filled with lovely
gifts and books was another nice touch, and the ladies who came remarked on
what a lovely event it was.
Michelle Gardner, one of the owners of Thistledown
spoke of the inn’s history, for it was once a hospital many years ago. Debbie
Brehun of the Ligonier Echo also spoke about the town. I gave a little talk
about my writing journey and all the events that have inspired me through the
years to come up with my “stories from the heart and inspiration for the soul,”
as I call them. We had a book reading and even popped a bottle of champagne in
The amazing people of my favorite town did not
disappoint. They showed up to support an author who hopefully captures some of
the charm and old-fashioned goodness of a town that feels as if it has stepped
back in time. For Ligonier will always be that to me: a place where I can leave
the harsh reality of day to day living behind, if only for a weekend.
It is with great excitement that I write about the sequel to this first book. It is in the hands of my publisher, and will be available very soon. I am extremely fortunate to have an upcoming book launch at Carol & Dave's Roadhouse on Sunday, August 28th 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Once again, this awesome town did not disappoint. Carol was gracious and receptive to holding the book event at her establishment. And I'm thrilled to have it there since her restaurant is one of many of the shops mentioned in my upcoming fictional book. You see, I wanted to write a labor of love back to you all. For the many times my husband and I travel there, and how kind the townsfolk and shopkeepers have been to us. I'd like to paint a portrait of this town that I've fallen in complete love with. Here's hoping we have a great turnout that afternoon and make some new and lasting friendships.
A very special thank you to Heather Roddy for the above photograph she took which is being used on the cover of the sequel.
The breakthrough of a person’s karmic fate can
be categorized into two levels: one is for the worldly concern, the other for
the spiritual. Mr. Tsai had talked about the first in his June 12th
presentation and he will share with us the key and the practice for the
breakthrough in the spiritual level in his next presentation which will take
place on July 27th at 2:00 PM.

The mystery underlying human life is
the phenomenal “karma.” Making
karma (= reacting to one’s perception “deludedly”) will result in
the following three mysterious happenings:
Reinforcing spiritual delusion
the karmic law of cause and effect
A person’s perception in life deludes him to take his physical
body and its history as the totality of him and all others as the objective
world he lives in and deals with. This blinds him from the truth of who he is
in life so as to also block the way back to Heaven for him after
the end of this life.
2.(The karmic law of cause & effect) Every time his reaction to what he
perceives from outside becomes a causative command to himself (in
the spiritual level) to receive the same “intention”
of the current reaction coming from outside as an external situation for him to
experience and deal with in the future.
His present perception is confined and defined by his current karma,
while his current karma is derived from his reaction
to the perception each time in the past. This forms an incessant, self-producing
(chicken-and-egg), cycling situation for his life to continue, even after the
end of this one.
(To be continued next time: THE
