THE ENTITY ON CHRISTMAS
Birth of Christ DuccioBy: Diego Coppola
As you may have noticed, from time to time the entity speaks to some people for quite a while.  Most of the time they are dealing with specific issues related to the people in front of them.  Once in a while The Entity will speak about topics that are more general.  A few years ago just before Christmas I found myself witnessing such a speech.  The entity talked about various things and finally landed on the subject of Christmas.  He said (And I am paraphrasing) "I know you are all preparing to celebrate Christmas and I hope you have not forgotten what Christmas is about."  He paused for a moment and said...  "You know, Jesus really was not born on December 24/25th" He looked at me and asked, "Isn't that right son?"  I nodded my head and smiled, remembering a similar conversation years ago with a teacher of mine.  I also found myself wondering why he asked me if I agreed. Did he know I  knew that already?  Then he continued "... But that is not important.  What is important is that most of the people are focused on Christ at that time of the year and that makes it easier to connect to the spiritual side because the veil is thinner." 

I guess it might be a good idea to spend some time praying this Christmas, don't you think?

CHRISTMAS AT THE CASA
Casa Christmas HallSpend Christmas at the Casa
It is wonderful to spend Christmas at the casa.  It generally is a very intimate setting for meditation and reflection.  The city is quiet except for Christmas Eve when we get a visit from Santa Claus driving all over town giving Candy to the Children.

HEALTH AND NUTRITION - Brazilian Style
Cupuacu Cupuašu
Cupuašu (Pronounced KOO- POO-WA-SSOO) (Theobroma grandiflorum), also spelled Cupuassu and Copoasu, is a tropical rainforest tree related to Cacao. Common throughout the Amazon basin, it is widely cultivated in the north of Brazil, with the largest production in Parß, followed by Amazonas, Rond˘nia and Acre.  Cupuašu trees usually range from 5 to 15 meters (16 to 50 feet) in height, though some can reach 20 meters (65 feet). They have brown bark. Their leaves are 25-35 cm (10-14 in) long and 6-10 cm (2-4 in) across, with 9 or 10 pairs of veins. As they mature, their leaves change from pink-tinted to green, and eventually they begin bearing fruit. Cupuašu fruits are oblong, brown, and fuzzy, 20 cm (8 in) long, 1-2 kg (2-4 lb) in weight, and covered with a thick (4-7 mm), hard exocarp.  The white pulp of the cupuašu is uniquely fragrant, and it contains theacrine (1,3,7,9-tetramethyluric acid) instead of the xanthines (caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline) found in cacao.[1] It is frequently used in desserts, juices and sweets. he secret to the fruit's power is in the nutrient content. Cupuacu is extremely nutrient-dense. Compared to the popular acai berry, cupuacu has more nutrients per pound than the little berries do.

It's primary beneficial ingredient is the phytonutrient polyphenols (theograndins) it contains. These have a number of health benefits. In addition, cupuacu is heavy with Vitamins B1, B2, B3 (Niacin), both fatty and amino acids, at least nine antioxidants (including Vitamins A and C), and a high flavanoid content. Other nutrients include calcium, selenium, and more.

All of these nutrients combine to affect things in the body such as immune system boosting, evening out the metabolism, lowering blood pressure, and more. The vitamins and nutrients act as an instant energy booster (without the down that caffeine has) and its lipid peroxidation inhibition lowers cholesterol levels.
