The Keys That Open presents possible solutions to real-life situations

"The (Real) Poisons In Your Food"


“The major sources of poison in our daily diet are the chemicals that are used in growing foods. [The] primary job of pesticides is to kill bugs that attack farm crops and farm animals”. Unfortunately;

 “At the same time man is poisoning his insect enemies, he also is poisoning himself…” The Poisons in Your Food (p.55)

Furthermore, [they] disrupt the balance of nature.

And in terms of pesticides, these chemical toxins, (with their continued use year after year, and decade after decade), accumulate in the soil, they build up in our atmosphere, and they leach into our lakes, rivers and seas, contaminating our water sources and poisoning the fish and other sea-life.

Keep in mind that these pesticides and other chemical substances are absorbed into and/or remain on the surface of the fruits, vegetables and grains sold at market, (a lot of these chemicals are not removed, even after washing).

And because their feed contains these chemicals, they are absorbed into the meat and the fat of the animals and the animal products that end up on the dinner table.

An example of this are non-organic potatoes. Non-organic potatoes are treated with fungicides while growing, then sprayed with herbicides, and treated again with herbicides after they are dug-up, to prevent sprouting (to begin to grow buds or shoots).

A member/chair of the [U.S] National Organic Standards Board, says; “Try this experiment: Buy a conventional potato in a store, and try to get it to sprout. It won't."

He continues; "I've talked with potato growers who say point-blank they would never eat the potatoes they sell. They have separate plots where they grow potatoes for themselves without all the chemicals." 

In addition, growth hormones are given to dairy cattle to boost milk production; while growth hormones, antibiotics, and tranquilizers (before shipping to market), are widely used in agriculture today...


Riddle Me This...(Part 2)


Can you think of the obvious & not-so-obvious answers to these 10 Riddles?

Answers below. (Try to answer all the questions before you scroll down to the answers)



1) What is Black when you buy it, Red when you use it, & Grey when you throw it out?

2) You can see me in water, yet I never get wet. What am I?

3) What do you throw out when you want to use it, but take in when you don't want to use it?


Reality or Denial? Awake or "Asleep"?


Most of us have experienced that interesting phenomenon which takes place whenever we become aware of something new (to us). As soon as we learn of something that a lot of other people already seem to know about, suddenly we will find that, everywhere we go, we hear, see and notice that which we were blind to before.

This is of great advantage to us, of course, because it gives us the opportunity to make use of, or to avoid if necessary, what we are now aware of. Because sometimes, these will be literal objects and obstacles in the road; or false illusions and entrapping mazes in the world at large, which we never noticed before, even though we are surrounded by them.

How gratifying it is to discover keys that open great windows of possibility in our minds, and those keys which unlock huge doors of opportunity in our lives!

Like Russian nesting dolls, our expanding awareness will form new layers of knowledge and levels of understanding about specific subject matters and about the world at large, which can be put to our advantage.

As long as we are willing to seek and to be taught, a wonderful thing happens where our questions will be answered, and we will find what we seek.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks, finds; and to him that knocks, it shall be opened.” (Matthew ch. 7)


Wanna Become An Author? What I Wish I Knew Before Publishing My 1st Book!

Do you ever wish you could become an author? Do you have those ideas or experiences you want to share with others? Are you a professional or an entrepreneur looking to build your brand, increase your visibility and credibility?
Do you want a step-by-step guide to publishing success? How does the idea of Publish A Book & Grow Rich sound? 
As the author of The Keys That Open, my 1st book, I remember the sense of accomplishment I felt when my book was finally published and released in 2014 ( Now, with my upcoming 2nd book in the works, and hopefully scheduled to be published Autumn/Winter 2017, I know exactly what to do for even more success this time around..
One thing is for sure, I wish someone had told me to attend a Publish A Book & Grow Rich Bootcamp before my 1st book was published.
 This is because I learned more about marketing and the publishing industry in that 3-day event than I did in the last 2 years!

How We Learn To Learn!


Have you ever had those vivid dreams where everything seemed so real and tangible that you were surprised to find yourself waking up?

Such dreams are sometimes so good that we are upset to be woken up before we finish them--while other vivid dreams are a relief to wake up and be free from! And we might find some dreams give us something to think about in instances where they might reflect current issues in our lives.

In many ways, life itself can be similar to these vivid dreams in that sometimes we will “wake up to” or discover something that materially, tangibly and completely changes the thoughts and perceptions we had just a short while ago....

The 4 Hidden Dynasties - Methods of Global Social Control


Based on Dr. Arnold Murray’s teachings of the “4 Hidden Dynasties”, the 4 Arenas used as methods of global social control, and to keep the majority of people around the world confused, fearful, ignorant, and under the control of The Powers That Be (the elite) are: ...

    1) Politics: Power to rule and make Laws; power to engage in war; corruption, special interest lobby groups; the Military-Industrial Complex;...

    2) Education: Substandard curriculum; “the dumbing-down effect”; censoring of information/history. Also, “filtered” News, Media, Music and Entertainment;


“The World Is A Business…And Apparently There Is No Money In Health”


Big Business including Agribusiness, Food Corporations and Manufacturers, as well as large Chemical companies (pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilizers) and Biotech companies which produce GMOs (ex. Monsanto with over 90% market share), are primarily concerned with profit, and not with the health and nutrition of the global population that consume their products.

It is also naïve, in my opinion, to believe that Pharmaceutical companies primarily care about our health and well-being. They are, at their roots, sales companies, and their first priority is maximizing their profits.....

Looking In The Mirror? Roots & Fruits


The Universal Law of Cause and Effect states that for every action there is a re-action, every result has a cause, and every action has an outcome.

This means that all the things we say and do have consequences. These consequences and outcomes, in turn, affect, impact and change the circumstances, the emotions and the actions of the people around us.

Far from being just a philosophical concept, the universal law of cause and effect has actual application to the person we find looking in the mirror...

The Art of War- Know Yourself


As ancient philosopher, military general and strategist Sun Tzu (4th Century B.C.) states in The Art of War;

  •      “He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight...And, [one] who understands how to use both large and small forces will be victorious.”

  • “If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will be defeated in every battle. If you know yourself but are ignorant about the enemy, your chances of victory or defeat are equal. If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you will not be in danger, and you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”


The Healing Balance of Nature


Some of the main issues and problems with most of the man-made chemicals and industrial waste that end up in our air, water and soil, are their toxic effect on the organic material of the human body, and the fact that they disrupt the balance of nature.

The biological balance of nature, and all living beings, is maintained by a system of interrelated checks and balances which exist in harmony. This healing balance of nature and harmony in the global eco-system sustains life as we know it on Planet Earth.

“Judge Not, Lest You Be Judged” – Jesus Christ


“…If you believe others when they tell you that your Creator rejects you for what you were born with, you might find yourself going to extremes of behaviour that will bring you much harm… You might also be very easy prey to the vultures who have tried throughout history to exploit, control, and destroy those whose potential they fear…”

Many times when the subject of Jesus Christ or The Creator God is discussed, the following questions are bound to be asked: But what about people born and raised in different religions and belief systems? What about people in remote parts of the world who don’t know anything about the Holy Bible and Christ? Are they condemned and beyond salvation?”

“Yes, He Loves Gays”: Guest Blog


Guest blog by Ann Wong 

Seldom do I come across an author, a believer in the Creator who shows God in such a kind light when it comes to this hot button topic of sexual orientation but S. A. Abraham got it so right in her book, The Keys that Open.

  • He doesn’t treat you unfairly based on the things you were born with, such as your race, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic standing.”
  • “The commandments, the laws and all the instructions relate, not to our genetic make-up, but they concern our choices: our actions, words and behaviours”.

Knowing Is Not Enough, We Must Apply


By S.A. Abraham

Bruce Lee once said; “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”

The Art of Living Well is the art of understanding wisdom. It is the desire to focus on self-knowledge and cultivation; and the drive to make our dreams a reality.

 In our individual journeys towards the attainment of self-empowerment as well as the spiritual path and the inner peace we aspire to; discipline, instruction and patience apply equally to the physical, emotional and the spiritual aspects.

 British philosopher and writer James Allen writes in As a Man Thinketh


• “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he… A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts”…

 • “Man is made or unmade by himself… By the right choice and true application of thought, man ascends to the Divine perfection; by the abuse and wrong application of thought, he descends below the level of the beast. Between these two extremes are all the grades of character, and man is their maker and master.”


 We must, therefore, first learn self-knowledge and we must discipline our own selves. To a very large extent, I am convinced that pure intentions, good energy, and continued practice are the ingredients which make all the difference in creating this self-cultivation, awareness, and inner peace.

 I believe that devoting and setting time aside to meditate, to learn, and to actively work towards our goals helps us to achieve a more rewarding life that includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

 The habit of making time for calm contemplation, prayer and personal reflection can be built up and practiced gradually over a period of time. Unlike a passing trend or a thing of novelty, such consistently practiced habits become part of a positive routine which produce good fruit in our lives.


For more articles, the chapter “The Art of Living Well”, and the New BOOK on the subjects of self-growth, balance, inner peace and empowerment, visit The Keys That Open - Meditations on The Creator & the Way to Inner Peace and Empowerment is the new Book with great appeal to those interested in Personal Growth, Human Behaviour, Health and Wellbeing, Spirituality, Faith -v- Religion, Eastern Philosophies and History as well as Current Affairs.


The Practice of Tai Chi Chuan: Health, Meditation & Martial Art


In Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, we learn that “Your mind controls your body [movements, actions, muscles], and in turn, you control your mind [thoughts, intentions, decisions].”

Tai chi chuan is an exercise discipline and an internal Chinese martial art, practiced for its health benefits, its meditative qualities, and for its defence training.

The 3 main aspects of tai chi chuan (Health, Meditation & Martial Art) enable the regular practitioner to gain balance and control over both the body and the mind so that they function and work in balance and harmony...

Who should solve your health problems?


In The Keys That Open, S.A. Abraham quotes from The Poisons in Your Food that; “Health is not made in hospitals; a hospital is where one goes when health has broken down.” 

This made me think of a family member of mine, who is a borderline hypochondriac. The minute anything happens, they want to be rushed to the hospital fearing that they may be near death. What I can never understand is why this person has so much faith that once they arrive at the hospital or see a doctor, they will be cured.

Using Self-Knowledge to Shut Out the Confusing & Repetitive “White Noise”


Self-knowledge and analysis, awareness, understanding our motivations and reactions; as well as practicing and putting into action effective methods of dealing with the world at large become very valuable tools with which to navigate our lives.

One of our greatest advantages is that we can grab hold of the present time in order to shape and change our future. The past is past. The future is not yet, and so the only real time we have to work with is the now.

How to put our mistakes into perspective


If it is normal for people to make mistakes, why do we constantly penalize ourselves and others for them?

Whether it’s a bad relationship, poor judgment at work, financial errors such as racked up debt, or wearing that really tacky polka-dot dress with too many ruffles; when we are 90 plus, and looking back at our lives, I’m sure we would all admit to having made countless (big and small) mistakes.

When I tell people I don’t live life with regrets they either look at me in complete disbelief assured that I’m flat out lying, or immediately assume I’m some sort of angel that’s never done anything wrong. (Quite the contrary!)

I believe in living life without regrets mainly because of my optimistic outlook on life. I also partially credit the great teachings from many different books.

One such example is

Achieving A More Fruitful Life


In my life, my loved one’s lives and the lives of many people I know, these blessings have been manifested in the form of helpful people arriving exactly when we needed them; receiving unexpected but much needed resources and money; healing from illnesses, protection and safety from many situations; as well as a sense of calmness and inner peace in our everyday lives.

Our Heavenly Father hears us when we call upon Him, and He answers our prayers in very specific ways. You might be led to Scripture passages that deal with your specific question or dilemma in life. Maybe you will come across a book, a magazine, or a newspaper article about that thing you have been praying about.

You might meet people who have gone through that specific experience or flip the channel and find a documentary or program that speaks directly to your question.

First Things First – The Stepping Stones to Our Potential

In the chapter First Things First – The Stepping Stones to Our Potential, Author S.A. Abraham tackles the subject of personal growth as a process in which new information has the capacity to help us change and grow.

For personal growth to happen, acquiring new information and knowledge as well as developing and changing our perceptions regularly is of key importance. In doing so, we can take on great adventures throughout our lives.
