The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture

by in Moving & Eating.

I preface with, this is unfortunate…. The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture originally from Forbes By Henry I. Miller and Drew L. Kershen Consumers of organic foods are getting both more and less than they bargained for. On both counts, it’s not good. Many people who pay the huge premium—often more than a hundred percent–for organic foods do so because they’re afraid of pesticides.  If that’s their rationale, they misunderstand the nuances of organic agriculture. Although it’s true that synthetic chemical pesticides are generally prohibited, there is a lengthy list of exceptions listed in the Organic Foods Production Act, while most “natural” ones are permitted. However, “organic” pesticides can be toxic.  As evolutionary …

Sometimes We Must Put Ourselves First

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

Sometimes We Must Put Ourselves First “That’s the thing about ‘what ifs’; they don’t matter. They don’t change anything. All they do is make it unable for you to heal.” – Lindy Zart, Take Care We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to say no or cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We cant, nor should we have to do everything thats asked of us. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to everything around us. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around …

Is There A Formula To A Good Life?

Is There A Formula To A Good Life?

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Is There A Formula To A Good Life? What can we do to live a long life? Research is showing that our relationships matter more than we ever guessed. In fact, they might matter more than fruits and vegetables, visits to the gym and annual check-ups. According to research the answer lies in a simple yes/no question which can likely predict whether you will be alive and happy at age 80? “Is there someone in your life whom you would feel comfortable phoning at four in the morning to tell your troubles to?” Is there someone in your life whom you would feel comfortable phoning at four in the morning to tell your troubles to? …

Are You Vibrationally Ready?

Are You Vibrationally Ready?

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Are you vibrationally ready? Its a crazy number, 92% of people who win the lotto are broke within the first 2 years. It’s because they weren’t vibrationally ready. If everything is energy, EVERYTHING; how much are we ready to hold, how much are we able to maintain? When I look back in my life I think of things I wanted (love, money, success, career, things I thought would make it all better) and it’s so clear I didn’t receive it, or never received it, or haven’t received it because I wasn’t / am not vibrationally ready.

How Much Do You Truly Love Yourself?

How Much Do You Truly Love Yourself?

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

I would like to ask a fundamental question – How much do you truly love yourself? The reason this question is so important, perhaps the most important question you can ask, is without knowing the answer; you will live unconsciously from moment to moment, just going through the motions without being awake to the deeper significance of your choices, and what energy you are broadcasting to the world, what you are inviting into your life, and what you are making others aware of. This is your life, it is your signature creation. It is your duty to live true to yourself, with integrity; and authentically communicate your message to the world. …

7 Things Every Person Must Do Right Upon Waking

7 Things Every Person Must Do Right Upon Waking

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

7 Things Every Person Must Do Right Upon Waking Life is busy. It can feel impossible to move toward your dreams. If you have a full-time job and kids, it’s even harder. How do you move forward? If you don’t purposefully carve time out every day to progress and improve —without question, your time will get lost in the vacuum of our increasingly crowded lives. Before you know it, you’ll be old and withered, wondering where all that time went. As Harold Hill has said: “You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays.” Rethinking Your Life and Getting Out of …

8 Mantras for Success

8 Mantras for Success

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

8 Mantras for Success Becoming healthy is as much a mental process as it is a physical experience. Most of us would admit we find ourselves overhauling much more than simply our dinner plates or daily exercise. Oftentimes, we’re upending years – or decades – of unhealthy inertia as well as eating, destructive self-talk as well as inactivity. I hear from a lot of beginners who say they look to certain posts or even paragraphs when the going gets tough. Something they read here sticks with them, and it touches off something in their motivation. On a good day, it helps them go the extra mile. On a crappy day, it …

What Is Raw

What Is Raw

by in Moving & Eating.

What is Raw: Raw Foods are simple, unprocessed, and uncooked foods. They are full of enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. Raw foods are often preserved through dehydration to prevent break down that occurs with heating or other preparation methods. Raw food is made by nature. Almost all enzymes are proteins which are required for the chemical reactions to occur properly within the cells of the body. They are essential to digesting our food and are essential for all life. The fewer enzymes in our food, the less life it has! Heating of food to more than 118 degrees Fahrenheit destroys these vital enzymes in our food. Food with low or no …

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.

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 …

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.

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 …

Outwitting The Devil and Public School Reform According To Napoleon Hill

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Considering our education system has been the exact same way since 1930, I decided to share the following ideas on public school reform from Outwitting The Devil: 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 …

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 …
