Recognizing Prostate Cancer and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Peace. As we close out the month of August and gear up for back-to-school, back-to-work, changing of the seasons and all of the wonderful events and happenings in our lives, let us not forget that we still need to take steps to recognize our other "best parts." September of each year marks a time when we are Nationally recognizing prostate cancer awareness and ovarian cancer awareness. Both of these condition can cause damage to our reproduction systems, or worse, even death. Thus I challege all of the Earths to make sure the Gods in your lives take the steps to check their prostate this month - it may mean dragging them to the doctor yourselves, or maybe it is just having dialogue with them on the importance of making sure they are checked regularly. Gods - we know how much you love and respect your blackwoman, Queen, Earth - make sure they are not only getting their annual gynelogical exams, but also keep communication open with them about things that may be going on with their bodies that could raise alarm to the possibility of the early signs of ovarian cancer.

Signs of Prostate Cancer:

1. Urinary Difficulties
The first symptoms of prostate cancer are urinary difficulties. You may be wondering why urinary difficulties in this list of prostate cancer symptoms if the bladder is not the prostate gland? It's simple; as the tumors grow they press up against the organ, which is still very close to the prostate. When this happens a man will experience incontinence, trouble urinating at all, (despite incontinence) and a very low urine flow.

2. The Presence of Blood
It involves the presence of blood in a man's urine and/or semen.

3. Erectile Dysfunction
Of the symptoms listed in the here, erectile dysfunction makes the most sense, since the prostate gland is a sexual organ. However, erectile dysfunction is such a common problem among older men, they may not even suspect prostate cancer.

4. Swelling in the Legs
How can swelling in the legs be on the list of the 5 early symptoms of prostate cancer? It's because when the disease starts to metastasize, it will spread into the lymph nodes. As a consequence the unhealthy lymph nodes will start to accumulate in the legs, resulting in swelling.

5. Pelvic Discomfort
Pelvic discomfort is on the list of the symptoms of prostate cancer because when the disease affects the lymph nodes, it can cause them to press up against the nerves in the pelvis, resulting in pain.
If you are experiencing any of them, discuss the situation with your doctor. If he or she suspects you have prostate cancer, they will perform a series of tests including a general rectal exam, an ultrasound and blood tests. Should a tumor be found, they perform a biopsy to determine if it is prostate cancer. To learn more about prostate cancer, and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, please visit

Signs of Ovarian Cancer in Women-

Recent studies have shown that women with ovarian cancer are more likely than are other women to consistently experience the following symptoms:

  • Abdominal pressure, fullness, swelling or bloating
  • Urinary urgency
  • Pelvic discomfort or pain

Additional signs and symptoms that women with ovarian cancer may experience include:

  • Persistent indigestion, gas or nausea
  • Unexplained changes in bowel habits, such as constipation
  • Changes in bladder habits, including a frequent need to urinate
  • Loss of appetite or quickly feeling full
  • Increased abdominal girth or clothes fitting tighter around your waist
  • Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • A persistent lack of energy
  • Low back pain
  • Changes in menstruation

Readers are Plentiful...Thinkers are Rare


Not too long ago, while going through my Book of Life, I realized that our culture embraces gaining knowledge, reading, researching, accumulating and applying facts, etc. All of that is great and, for many of us, it has meant being able to create great masterworks of literature, poetry, art, hip-hop music, fashion design, etc. We raise and teach our children, follow dietary laws, and live our daily lives based on our knowledge. What it lead me to wonder is, how efficiently are we producing and processing our thoughts to reach these levels?? Are there ways that we can be "better thinkers?"

Let's be honest - our thoughts can make or break our life. Use it well, and we will prosper. Use it badly, and we will suffer. Frank Crane once said "Our best friends and our worst enemies are our thoughts. A thought can do us more good than a doctor or a banker or a faithful friend. It can also do us more harm than a brick." Being so, I thought it would be important for me, at least, to have some guidance or tools, to being a more effective and productive "thinker."

With thinking - what are some of the things we process? Willpower, deduction, decision-making, induce creativity... and so much more!

Tap into your multi-levels of consciousness - Conscious thoughts that we have are only a mere fraction of all of the thoughts that we are absorbing at any given time. Our subconscious absorbs vast amounts of information that we aren't even aware of. This is where our intuition comes in - and we shouldn't ignore, but better yet, tap into it.

Don't think under pressure - I have horrible stage fright. Anytime I have to perform in front of an audience, or have a solo, I get extremely nervous and my mind begins to work overtime. I found that by practicing and studying my part until I could play it in my sleep, still allowed me to perform without the threat of my over-thinking getting the best of me.

Explore alternatives - Many times when we suspect something based on behavior we would see if we suspected the opposite, we conclude what we suspect to be true based on that behavior. Although many times, you may be right, this type of thinking can be very limiting and sometimes you can perpetuate misunderstanding based on what you thought you knew. So, also look at alternatives and different angles before coming to a conclusion (do the knowledge)

Take a Long Shower or Walk - Studies show that moments of insight often arrive when you're not aware that you're thinking of the problem, such as during a warm shower or a long stroll. This is because insights are typically generated by a rush of high-frequency gamma-band neural activity in the brain's right hemisphere, and a mind is better able to tune in to that hemisphere when it is stress-free.

Be skeptical of your memories - In recent years, scientists have demonstrated that many of our memories are surprisingly dishonest. The act of recalling an event changes the structure of that memory in the brain. Details are tweaked; the narrative is altered. The more you think about it, the less accurate your recollection becomes, and the less reliable it is as a basis for making any kind of conclusion.

Study your Mistakes - One common trait of successful people is their willingness to focus on their fumbles. Even when they do well, they insist on looking at what they could have done better. Such perfectionism might not be a recipe for happiness, but it's a vital component of learning, since brain cells figure out how to get things right by analyzing what they got wrong.

Practice Metacognition - Metacognition, is basically thinking about thinking, a crucial skill. Many scientists argue that the best predictor of good judgment isn't intelligence or experience; it's the willingness to engage in introspection.

Add on, if you would like. Peace

The Veggies sure taste good.... but why am I still tired???

Peace -

I noticed that in the nation - I have seen that more Gods are keeping Fit then the Earths... it's just my personal observation. Being that we are the primary caregivers (in Most Cases) to our children... it is important for us to be just as concious in our personal dietary AND physical needs. Just because we are vegans and vegetarians doesn't meant that we are automatically cleansed and healthy... we need to combine that with exercise as well.

So I am proposing and Body Boot camp so to speak. Not to lose weight necessarily... but to get PHYSICALLY healthy so we can be around our Children and our families longer.

I know that we can't all work out together but - even if we start a weekly conference call or Status update (either Via Facebook or Twitter) on our progress, what we found helped us, or to reach out for encouragement... I think that would be helpful. this is just my personal thought.

As a matter of fact... I am going to start a group at my Site SPGM. It will be called The Body Boot Camp. Your input would be appreciated and welcomed.
Feel free to start one of your own or if we decide FB or TW or another site would be better... we could do it there:)

If you would be interested in something like let's all get together and... help each other out... universally.

Should you have further ideas or suggestions on how this could be more effective please share.

Needs vs Wants

Peace Peace Peace -

I currently have a business and a job... and it is definitely hard when you can see the potential of what you're trying to achieve yet... still dealing with what is currently making ends meet, and putting food on the table.

I remember my mom telling me that she had taken jobs that she couldn't stand but - did it because she had us and we needed stability. I know that what I am working towards will succeed but for now... I need to put up with ugly customer attitudes and a mute button to prevent them from hearing a curse out.

So here is to everyone doing what the NEED to do... so that eventually ... they can do what they WANT...

Teaching the Babies Our Teachings - Repost


Fortunately, I am blessed to have children who were born to 2 parents with knowledge of self and living in this culture. They learn from us by watching us and building with us, how to be a righteous young God and righteous young Earth. It just seems so natural.

A few years ago, I ran into a God who had knowledge of self years before I did, and he told me that his daughter just "borned" herself, which meant to him that she just turned 9 years old. He said that he wanted her to start learning Supreme Math and Supreme Alphabets. This child lives with her mother who is an 85%, so I wonder why he would wait until she was 9 to start teaching her our way.

I know that it can be difficult to raise children in this nation when both parents are living this way of life and especially when only one parent has this knowledge. So, my question to you is...

For those of us raising babies in this way of life and even those who have not yet had children,

At what age should we start teaching our children Supreme Mathematics? What method (s) have you used to help them grasp this knowledge, and that of the Supreme Alphabet and 120 Lessons?

Also, for those of us who have children with an 85%, how do you manage to maintain your teachings and how effective do you think they are in opposition with the other parent's teachings?

Tell Us How You See It (there is NO wrong answer)

Peace Asiatics!

So, as we've said before, every issue of The 14th Degree and Beyond features a series of questions, along with answers from the previous issue's questions, called "Tell Us How You See It" in which our readers give us their understanding regarding a particular question we've posed.

Unfortunately, we've received only one answer... YES, ONE PATHETIC ANSWER... to the series of questions posed in our Summer 2009 "Show and Prove" Issue of The 14th Degree and Beyond Magazine. So I'm posting ALL of the questions for your review below.

If you don't want anyone but us - the staff - to read your answers you are welcome to send them to us at, or you can respond annonymously. If you'd like us to acknowledge you for sharing your understanding, please post it as a comment.

Your answer WILL appear in the Autumn 2009 Issue of the magazine - that is of course you specifically ask us not to print it then we will certainly honor your request.

So the tell us how you see it questions we need YOUR input on are:

1) What does being a "Vegan" mean to you – is it a dietary law (way of eating) or a cruelty-free lifestyle?

2) Have you heard of the “Theory of Relativity” as it pertains to 120 Lessons (relating the day’s degree in each set of lessons to each other – ex. Building on the wisdom degree of the 1-10, 1-14, 1-36, 1-40, actual facts and solar facts and relating all of those degrees to one another, and also, if able, relating them to degrees that deal with wisdom or degrees with numbers that born out to wisdom/2)? Do you practice this technique, why or why not? And what are some of the benefits and some of the hindrances of building on the “Theory of Relativity” – could it lead to gaining a broader understanding of the lessons or it is just a tool of confusion? (See the article by I Be Asia Peace Earth in our “Builders Build” section for more information on the “Theory of Relativity”.)

3) At what age should we start teaching our children Supreme Mathematics? What method(s) have you used that helps them to grasp this knowledge, and that of the Supreme Alphabet and 120 Lessons?

4) What is your all-time favorite memory of "Show and Prove” past?

Peace... and we appreciate every response we get!
