NOW Is A Spectacular Time To Grow And Heal

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

NOW is a spectacular time. Now is a spectacular time to grow and heal. We live in a fear stricken time, panic ridden, doubt filled, worry centered world. The whole world is going through this. You might say, “not me, I’m good”… But you are a part of it, the way I am a part of it. This world, this place, it’s ONE world, OUR world, where there isn’t any of this without you. We each play our parts. I am not a prophet but I believe with all my heart that we can change our current situation by changing our beliefs. Belief: Not to be confused with worries What …

Outwitting The Devil: The Secret To Freedom And Success

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

“I discovered that happiness, the highest aim of mankind, was mine for the taking, business depression or no business depression.” Outwitting the Devil Outwitting the Devil communicates with Satan the most terrifying evil spirit imaginable. He isn’t a “red horned, long tailed being holding a fork” (2 Cor. 11:14) but instead a wicked malevolent presence ….in your mind. Hill interviews the devil methodically and mercilessly wringing from him the essence of living a life of personal achievement. This book is mostly written as questions to and answers from, the Devil, who insists on being referred to as Your Majesty. But this devil is confident that even with the knowledge of how …

It’s so HARD … The PRIDE WALL Life is HARD. Really hard. Let’s not be prideful about that. PRIDE is our biggest obstacle, the thing we must conquer most. We must REPENT.

18 Health Tricks to Teach Your Body Eating 10 hot dogs in 6 minutes and belching the national anthem may impress your friends, but neither of those feats will do much for your body—at least not much good.

You can teach your body to cure itself from everyday health ailments—side stitches, first-date jitters, even hands that have fallen asleep.

14 Things You Didn’t Know About Bananas

by in General, Moving & Eating.

After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.
Bananas contain three natural sugars -sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.
Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.
But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

by in General, Moving & Eating.

It’s Time To Get EXTREMELY HEALTHY 87% of Americans are on a diet at all times. Our minds are filled with the things we cant have, shouldn’t have, avoid this and avoid that, we have built this world of fear, a world of things we must avoid. Instead of filling your body with very poisonous chemicals in an attempt to prevent something, instead of doing torturous and disfiguring methods to get the body you want and instead of doing nothing… How about instead we get EXTREMELY HEALTHY and: FLOOD the body with more nutrition than it can possibly use, so it has all the building blocks to build more immune cells and …

Strength To Those On Their First Day Of Ramadan

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Strength To Those On Their First Day Of Ramadan- 30 days of purity seems tiny in the grand scheme of things. And Beautiful. To dedicate simply 30 days to cleansing oneself form impurities. Not to lose weight, not for looks, not for anything but a closer connection to life, to spirit. I can admire that. And to those who practice, you are in my prayers, may it go smoothly and justly, and bring whatever it is supposed to bring. #0 days to observe ourselves, see how slave like we can be to simple bodily impulses, to how culturally present food is, and how many things are built around food. 30 …

Public School Reform Ideas According To Napoleon Hill

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Reverse the present system by giving children the privilege of leading in their school work instead of following orthodox rules designed only to impart abstract knowledge. Let instructors serve as students and let the students serve as instructors. As far as possible, organize all school work into definite methods through which the student can learn by doing, and direct the class work so that every student engages in some form of practical labor connected with the daily problems of life. Ideas are the beginning of all human achievement. Teach all students how to recognize practical ideas that may be of benefit in helping them acquire whatever they demand of life. Teach …

Your Body Is Miraculous

by in Moving & Eating.

Your Body Is Miraculous by Lonny J. Brown  Do you take your body for granted? Actually, if you can, that’s a healthy sign that it’s working just fine, and not making any uncomfortable demands on your awareness. Your body has evolved according to an ingenious three million year-old blueprint to function automatically and constantly under a variety of circumstances, with a minimum of conscious attention. It efficiently assimilates food and eliminates waste, deftly cools and warms itself as conditions require, and silently monitors and repairs thousands of components, even as you obliviously go about your business. How miraculous that all this can happen on its own, without the slightest effort …

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Live Well, Live Long by Lonny J. Brown Would you like to add fifteen healthy years to your life? Ask this question of the average American and chances are the answer would be an unqualified “yes.” But ask that same average citizen if he or she is willing to give up cigarettes, alcohol, coffee, fast foods, fried foods, fatty animal and dairy products, chocolate, sugar, artificial additives, white bread, over-the-counter drugs, and 95 percent of the commercial products they regularly consume, and you may get a different response. Ask them if they are ready to buy only organic produce, use only botanical medicines, exercise vigorously three times a week, fast …

What Is Healing?

What Is Healing?

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

What is Healing? by Lonny J. Brown “Medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.”                                – Voltaire Most of us give little thought to the question of health until symptoms and suffering inform us that it has been lost. Usually, “health” is understood as merely the absence of discomfort and illness. When ailments do manifest, the common response is to place ourselves in the hands of what author Ken Pelletier calls the pathology management industry, and hope for the best. But this passive approach stifles our potential for realizing the wonderful, very real possibility of true wellness. True health is our natural birthright, and includes a sense …

Re-post from Forks Over Knives On a recent flight on my way to present my slideshow on carnism, I struck up a conversation with the woman sitting next to me, a conversation that was not terribly different from many of my in-flight dialogues: Woman: Where are you heading? MJ: To give a talk on my book Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. Woman: Good-naturedly laughs out loud. That’s a great title! I should read your book. I just love dogs. In fact my husband and I started our own animal shelter because there are so many stray dogs in our town. And…I eat pigs, too. And…I wear …

Are You Guilty of Bad Eating Habits?

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Are You Guilty of Bad Eating Habits? Have you ever eaten cheese and crackers for dinner because you don’t have anything else? Just me? Although my meal was tasty, it was a terrible choice for my health. If you, like me, don’t take the time to plan your meals for the week and ensure you have the ingredients on hand, you might make some pretty unhealthy choices come dinnertime. Improper planning is only one of many bad eating habits described in today’s infographic. Not drinking enough water is another, and so is adding salt to all your food. Naturally, I’m guilty of those, too. It’s a good thing someone provided …

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

My Goal Is To Enable People To Live An Extraordinary Life I only wish we could find a way in this day and age not to be so easily embarrassed to admit the felt presence of our uniquely human desire for meaning and purpose. It’s past time that we stop being so easily ‘duped’ by the prevailing cultural narrative that tells us that the big question of meaning is just a relative and personal matter, and doesn’t necessarily have any ultimate or universal value. In fact, it is that existential need for meaning, maybe more than anything else, that makes us truly human. I’m not alone. The majority of history’s …

Love Is The Worlds Greatest Religion “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬ The Definition Of Love According To All Religions Christianity: “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is God; and everyone that …
