Protect your body as it is your temple

It is never too early to start protecting your body.
When I talk about body, I actually mean all three combined together:
your mind, your body and your soul.

There are several things, I did wrong in my life.
And there are also good things I gained through experience.
Those things I want to pass on to you, dear Savannah, dear Joshua,
so that you are not making the same mistakes.
This list is not final, but it gives you a good start.

1) Protect your body
– Eat and drink organic. If you have the possibility to choose between organic and non-organic, choose organic. Best would be, if you grow your own food in your garden.
– Don’t eat produced sweets. You just don’t need them. When you are longing for something sweet, eat some fruits.
– Eat enough fruits and vegetables. Every day.
– Reduce meat. The older you get, the less you need.
– Instead of meat eat enough proteins. Good sources of proteins are nuts (e.g. walnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans), seeds (e.g. pumpkin, sesame, sunflower), legumes (e.g. lentils, kidney beans, white beans, chickpeas)
– You need minerals, especially in your age of growing: calcium (e.g. natural yoghurt, broccoli), iron (e.g. salmon, eggs, beans, broccoli), potassium (e.g. bananas, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, broccoli, citrus fruits, legumes) and zinc (e.g. nuts and legumes).
– You need enzymes (e.g. papayas, pineapples).
– Cook yourself.
– Use coconut oil when cooking. Another good oil is made out of flaxseed. All other oils can produce bad stuff for your body when being heated up.
– Drink (enough) spring water. And for sure don’t drink sweetened drinks. They are full of sugar and other bad stuff. If you are longing for something sweet to drink, make yourself a fresh fruit juice.

2) Train your strength
– If possible, work outside.
– If not, do sports for sure. You will figure out by time, where your talents are.
– When you’re old enough, use your bicycle instead of a car.
– Whatever you are doing, e.g. when you are lifting heavy things, always strengthen/put tension to your core. This will protect especially your back.

3) Train your mind
– Leave smartphones, tablets aside.
– Be as often as you can in nature.
– Connect to nature. Most of the people are disconnected from nature. May you stay connected and protect the nature.
– Read.
– Write.
– Learn.
– Play an instrument.

4) Train your spirit
– Pray. It is the sweetest moment every day and it can change everything for you.
– Meditate. It is so important to focus on the now, what you are doing right in that moment and to switch off all of your thoughts.
– Connect to our Creator. Let His pure energy flow through your body. Everything – physically and mentally – will become easier for you.
– Don’t let anybody steel your positive energy.
– Be kind. No matter what others do or say to you, stay in your middle and just be kind.
– Smile. And the world smiles with you.
– Find your purpose in life. There is a reason for you being on this planet. If you are connected to our creator, He will tell you your purpose. It took me more than 40 years to find it. May you’ll be blessed to find it quicker.

Love, your Papa.

Do not steal

You might wonder from time to time:
How do I get to know God better?
How can I get closer to Him?
One way is definitely listen to Him.

You can listen to Him by reading His words.
His words are written in the Bible.
And within the Bible you will find His rules:
the ‘ten commandments’.

One of the ten commandments is: do not steal.
Listen carefully my precious children,
never steal from somebody else’s money or property.
It also means don’t steal somebody else’s heart.
It is the worst thing you can do,
if you tell another person that you love him
even though you don’t.

Love, your Papa.

A book with 365 pages

A new year.
Another year of separation.
But a new year is also a chance.
Imagine, if this year is like a book with 365 pages
and you are the writer, make it a good book.

For the year to come I wish you all the best.
I wish you a never-ending yearning for wisdom.
I wish you a good connection to our Lord.
I wish you a life full of love.
And if miracles are not coming to you,
you should be the miracles:
be kind, give love and brighten a light in the dark.

I am sending you all of my light and all of my love.
God told me that the wind will be strong
so that my love will reach you across the sea.
Happy new year my beloved ones.
I love you and always will.

Love, your Papa.

Don’t buy firecrackers for New Year’s Eve

Firecrackers are not good.
They are not good for your and your neighbors health.
They are not good for the environment.
They are not good for your wallet.

Firecrackers produce particulate matter.
The amount of particulate matter produced by firecrackers in just one night at New Year’s Eve
is equivalent to the amount of particulate matter produced by 15 percent of all cars around the whole year.
This particulate matter is dust which is so tiny that you hardly can see it;
but it can lead to lung diseases.

Instead of wasting your money,
rather give your money to homeless people.
Even in Western countries there are so many people
suffering from the basic needs like shelter and food.
Be a good example and give your light to others in need.

Love, your Papa.

Don’t waste food

There are so many people in this world suffering.
They are suffering, because they have nothing to eat.
I also made this experience this year.
I can tell you, it is one of the worst feelings you can have.

In our western society it is common to throw away food; just like that.
On the other side, if you see fathers, who come home with no food
and children, who are crying, because they are hungry, it breaks my heart.
Please listen to this: it is not good to throw away food.

Put on your plate just enough food that you will eat for sure.
If you are still hungry afterwards, you can easily put more food on.
Sometimes we put too much on our plates; that can happen.
If that happens, don’t throw the leftovers away.
Keep them for later or share with your brothers and sisters.

Love, your Papa.
