We can Only Know the Truth Within:
Peace and Health Through Yogic Philosophy
There are three elements of life that should remain in balance. These elements are Shakti, or energy, Vayu, or conscious awareness, and Karma, or external experience.
Energy and conscious awareness need to take a manifest form to be experienced by the inner self. This manifest form is called Karma. Karma is like a water pipe, while Vayu is the water, and Shakti, the energy that makes the water flow. This is the nature of our experience of Being. As our conscious awareness flows from the all-eternal energy source through our outer worldly experience, we feel a sense of travelling on a universal journey. This is quest for self-knowledge, for Oneness with Universal Spirit.

The Secrets of Total Well-Being
Basic Nutritional Supplements, Their Uses and Benefits
Section 1. Vitamins: The First Step to Vitality
Vitamins, in limited quantities, are nutritional organic compounds vital to human life. Due to the low quality of the modern diet and the lack of whole unprocessed foods, vitamin deficiencies can occur even in those who eat a balanced diet. Among the most common conditions underlying poor health are unsuspected vitamin deficiencies, and supplementing with these nutrients can bring complete recovery. The first step to perfect health is mastering your vitamin status.
Vitamins are classified either as water or fat soluble. The water-soluble vitamins, including C and the B-Vitamin family, pass quickly through the system and should be replenished daily. The oil or fat-soluble vitamins, which are A, D, E and K, tend to accumulate in the body, and while vital to health and well-being, can become toxic if consumed in excess. Care should be taken when supplementing with fat-soluble vitamins.
Vitamins, by definition, are not produced by the body, but must be obtained from diet or supplements. There are a few exceptions to this. Niacin and Biotin are usually classified as vitamins, although they are manufactured by the body in small amounts. Vitamin D is another exception. The amounts the body synthesizes is not always sufficient for optimal health, making dietary sources or supplements necessary.
Extensive studies have been done on the effects of all vitamins, and there is little if any risk in taking supplements in reasonable amounts. Some manufacturers put very high doses in their pills, so if you have any doubts, take less than that prescribed on the label, either by breaking up tablets or opening capsules.
When first using supplements, keep track of what you take and how you feel. As you begin to notice the benefits of vitamins, there may be a tendency to think “the more the better”. However, large doses of even the water-soluble vitamins can create an imbalance in body chemistry.
For each vitamin below, I give a safe dosage range. This chart is for general health. More may be needed to treat specific conditions.
Optimal Daily Range of Vitamin Supplements For General Health
Vitamin A: 3000-5000 IU (Helpful for skin, hair, eyesight; is an antioxidant)
Beta Carotene: 0 IU (This is a precursor to Vitamin A and should not be supplemented separately.)
Mixed Carotenes: 4000-8000 IU (Contains Alpha and Beta Carotenes and related nutrients. Excellent for eyesight, skin and hair; has antioxidant properties)
Astaxanthan: 0.6 mg (Not strictly a vitamin; the best known anti-oxidant; good for anti-aging;; large dose can be taken once weekly.)
B1 (Thiamin): 50-300 mg (Excellent for cognitive function, memory, and neurotransmitter health.)
B2 (Riboflavin): 50 mg (Good for energy, proper brain function. healthy skin, and eyesight.)
B3 (Niacin): 100-500 mg (A cure for unbalanced cholesterol; lowers bad cholesterol; alleviates some forms of schizophrenia; good for energy, reduces stress. Start with small dose pure Niacin and increase gradually. Do not use “time release” or “no flush” forms, can harm liver. Flushing or tingling is beneficial to heart.)
B3 (Niacinamide): 50 mg (Helps prevent arthritis, diabetes. Not a substitute for Niacin.)
B5 (Pantothenic Acid): 100-800 mg (Good for calmness, adrenal support, energy, and youthful hair color. Take in mornings. More than 500 mg daily can cause insomnia)
B6 (Pyridoxine): 50-100 mg (Good for cognitive function, neurotransmitter support, red blood cells.)
Folic Acid: 400-500 mcg (Important for mental acuity and energy. Take in mornings only, More than 500 mg can cause insomnia.)
B12 (Methylcobalamin): 1000-2500 mg (Critical for coordination, mental acuity, and nervous system support. Alleviates symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. B12 supplements are needed by vegetarians and people over 60. B complex capsules do not contain enough B12.)
Biotin: 50-1000 mcg (Good for healthy skin and hair; is depleted by eating raw egg whites.)
Choline: 25-300 mg (Important for detoxification; promotes calmness and mental acuity.)
Inositol: 25-250 mg (Helps concentration. Take up to 1000 mg if working in noisy environments.)
Vitamin C: 100-500 mg (An important anti-oxident; helps immune response. Occasional 2000-3000 mg dose may help to ward off flu.)
Vitamin D: 100-400 IU (Good for mineral absorption, especially Calciumj. Can become toxic in large doses, use lower range if you get lots of sunshine.)
Vitamin E ( d-alpha-tocopherol): 150-250 IU (Good for a healthy heart; an important anti-oxidant; promotes youthfulness.)
Vitamin K: 150-500 mcg (Good for bones, arteries; assists blood clotting.)
Note on B Vitamins: A quick way to boost brain function and increase energy is to take one B50 complex capsule daily with breakfast, along with 100-250 mg Niacin and 1000 mcg B12 (in the methylcobalamin form).
B50 capsules generally contain no Niacin, only Niacinamide, which performs a different function in the body. B50 capsules also have inadequte amounts of B12 due to the body’s difficulty in absorbing the large B12 molecule. That is why Niacin and B12 should be supplemented separately. Be sure your B50 complex also contains Biotin, Choline and Inositol.
Stress and high mental activity deplete the B Vitamins.
Inner Christ Teaching:
Children of God, I call you up into peace. For every man truly seeks peace above all other things. For it is his true nature to be at peace, and his true state and vibration he shall always seek.
I give you this theme: everlasting peace. For peace itself is a state outside of time, outside of motion as you know it, outside of change, as you know it. For the man of earth lives on many levels, and higher levels of himself feed into his physical state of living their treasures. True and pure peace is a vibration so fine, man can only seek a drop at a time in his earthly mind, and only by truly opening himself to the inner levels of God can he even begin to grasp the meaning of peace. But this can be given to him as a gift, through the Christ. And to the children of men I can channel this through.
I give you the gift of peace, you shall not know why. You shall not even be able to grasp how. But in the midst of your turmoil, if you turn to me, I can give this to you. It is beyond your understanding in your present existence, but you may have it anyway, if you open your heart and call upon me. Those who truly love God know this gift within their hearts, beyond their understanding. They do not know why, how, this can be. For peace is outside of time and space, and the mind of man, functioning with time and space, cannot grasp the meaning of peace.
