Antioxidants – Blog No. 4

Antioxidants

These aspects of Nature are ideal for detoxification.  They are what to use when you find that your system is clotted with toxins.  Use antioxidants liberally, for that is what they have been created.  There are various ways to detoxify your body, your mind.  I would suggest the most direct route to doing so is the best option – i.e. as the crow flies.  That means skip the displacement, take the gap – the circuitous route to cleanliness is for the faint-hearted.

Take Cape Aloe lump.  Coffee.  Smoking in moderation.  Red wine.  Tumeric.  Laughter.  Loving.  Living.  Giveology.  Compassion.  Empathy.  Tears.  Unconditional Love.  Ask Kobi cattle why their meat is so delicious and they will tell you about how to live well with an understanding of what – exactly – antioxidants in this contemporary world can do.  Perhaps ask, too, what else to take.  The answer to that question will depend on what has initially been given.

The body is unbelievably appreciative when receiving antioxidants to help it with the process of eliminating shit.  If you know your body well – and it knows you as well – then eradicating crap is fairly easy.  You eat what you know you must eat and you drink accordingly what you must, too, in order that your body reaches its most optimum capacity.  That is a knowing of your circumstance and an appreciation for your body’s capacity for understanding.

Depression – Blog No. 43

depression

I suspect that three-quarters of this planet is currently suffering from one kind of a depression or another. Historically, depression has been either ignored or stigmatised. Its prevalence was grossly underestimated and its shattering effects widely misunderstood. Fortunately, that was then. This is now. It is clearer than ever in this day and age that depression is real – it decimates individuals and families. It is an indiscriminate killer.

 

Depression is excruciating to experience and soul-destroying to witness firsthand. It does not lend itself to explanation – the reasons for entering into a depression are too numerous to document even if there was all the time in the world. Each depressive has a reason for their pain that is literally inexplicable to the outside world. You need to feel it for yourself to know it. And when you do know it, you will then understand its power.

 

There are few depressives that would choose to be in the position they find themselves. If you cannot empathise with a depressed person, then at least show compassion for their circumstance. It is quite likely that there are truths and wars raging within them that you know nothing about. It is quite likely that there are moments in each of their days – possibly their everyday – when they think that death would be preferable to life. That does not mean every depressive is a suicide risk, but it does mean that there are plenty of deathwishers contributing to the collective mindset. Remember – thinking makes it so.

Breeding – Blog No. 86

IVF donation tinsWhy do people who can barely provide for themselves, breed?  Why are millions of children caught up in their parent’s poverty?  When you bring a child into a shit life – and you know very well whether your life is shit or not – what are you thinking?  I don’t think you are thinking.  You can’t be.  In some countries children are bred to sell, or to work.  That makes no sense.  The parents must work.  For themselves, first.  If you cannot put food on the table for yourself, let alone a family, then you have to sit parenthood out.  You do not breed children to provide for you – know that for free.  It is time people grew more responsible and looked at what they are doing to themselves, as a whole.  What are you showing a child when you bear and raise it in poverty, squalour?  You are teaching it disease and suffering.  Death.  Why would anyone choose to do that?  As a parent, do not tell me that there is surplus energy to love and nurture your children when you are struggling to stay alive.

Breeding violence is not productive.  What is the point of generation after generation learning that hurting other people is how you send a message or get what you want?  That is not the way.  Violence is second nature to some people.  It is their first reaction to any confrontation.  In fact, violent people will seek confrontation so that they can inflict damage.  Theirs’ is a bizarre mindset.  It wants controlling.  Realise that violence changes a person.  It hardens your heart.  If you commit acts of violence, you are not in control.  You need to be in control of your wild inside.  The anger that drives violence is a voice – amidst many – that still needs to be heard, but there are other ways for that pain to say what needs saying.  The fact that so much senseless violence is played out through alcohol intoxication should alert mankind to what it becomes under the influence.  Often, where there is truth there is conflict.

In the same way that you get breeds of animals, you get breeds of people.  Of men.  Women.  Animals accept their classification without taking it personally.  Humans don’t.  They fight themselves, each other, over what and who they are.  They are precious about their identity.  This is a consistency, everywhere.  It causes wars.  You are bred into tradition – the system – or you are bred to question the system.  Some people are bred into wealth.  What they do with that privilege is always measured.  You are bred into security, or you are not.  If you are not, your questions are for your parents.  Hard workers are a breed of people.  As are the compassionate.  Arseholes, too, are a breed.  Take each at face value.

Transgression – Blog No. 57

what-is-sin_472_326_80Transgressing is appealing to a lot of people.  Going against the rules, the regulations.  In a society as permissive as ours, anything goes.  In the worlds of white supremacists – yes, they still exist – where conservative thinking keeps dreams in a very small box, perhaps this is not good news.  It is probably not good news for the church, either.  Both tend towards puritanism, and misconduct – for that is what transgression is –  is not allowed.  That is the first reason transgression is attractive.  It is defiant and it shows a lack of respect for the opinion of the establishment.  The problem is that transgression affects you the same way as an addiction affects you.  Once you find your way into its labyrinth, it is hard to find your way out.  Transgressing is good for your conscience.  You must exercise your conscience now and again to be sure that you still have one.  If you should lose your conscience you are in trouble.  It is a rudder, a stabliser in a unstable world.  Our world is unstable.  There are too many conscienceless people.  Where do they find inspiration to be as heartless as they are, the ones that rape and murder and torture?  How arrogant their disregard for their afterlife.  The positive news is that they must live their deaths and their afterlives.  They will know how that feels when it happens.  Do not take all your guidance from your external reality, hear how you govern your internal reality and take guidance from that, too.  Your still mind has answers for all your questions.  Some, you must just be brave enough to ask.

Transgression is a sign.  Your human is smaller than your subconscious.  When the desire to do something you should not do is able to overwhelm your conscience, your moral code, then you must know how powerful desire.  I think men should desire women more.  These days they don’t get the chance – it’s all out there and it’s available in their faces.  There’s no chase.  Where has the point gone of being together?  Should a man not present his best to a woman he is trying to impress?  He should.  She should make him be his best, so he should always be trying to impress her.  His best should be who he truly is.  She will either like it or she won’t.  A woman should present the best of herself when she is on the man-path.  That is respectful to one another.    It is important to know that your best can be found hiding beneath the masks of make-up and designer gear.  That is not who you are.  That is the illusion you present to the world.  How big is your illusion?  I suppose it depends on how much money you have and how you choose to spend it.

It is most unfortunate that in this world, you do get what you pay for.  That consistency is what keeps reputable brands in big business.  It should be noted that there is a lot of crap for sale in this world.  I think we have China to thank for that.  The Chinese like to transgress.  They know what the rules are in this world and they choose to go against them, time and again.  Those that can do something about their transgressions, don’t.  Therein lies a problem.  Keep in mind how disciplined China’s past.  They have stamina, as an aggressor in any world.  Their mind-power is legendary.

I would be surprised if teenagers did not transgress as often as possible.  Expect it in this society.  In fact, the adults that transgressed as teenagers are still transgressing – are we surprised that the next generation followed their example?  Kids watch adults behave, they learn behaviours.  It is simple.  Even if you should wave your bible at your children and threaten their sins with eternal damnation, they will behave according to their needs, eventually.  You can only suppress a nature for so long.  If you will suppress your child, then know that its inner reality is going to be huge.  It will be enthralling, addictive – preferable to the one you are controlling and the child will choose to spend time in there, away from the world you have chosen to show it.   Realise that the reality inside a child is a reality in which you are not welcome as a trespasser.  Children need  privacy of being.  You should not be telling a child who to be in life.  You let it become.  You give it mind-space, too.  You have to let your children breathe, mentally.  Do not force-feed them with your attentions.  Let them learn how to empower themselves.  They must learn naturally how to handle their abilities and capabilities.  If you push your child in any particular direction be careful how hard you push.  You cannot live out your dreams through your child.  Do not try.  Let them become who they are without your interference.  Guidance, yes.  Interference, no.  It is encouraging how adept the today-children are at understanding life, and each other.  Communication is at an all-time high and emotional intelligence is being fostered in many homes and hearts.  Thank god for the families who have nurtured their children.  This world owes them a  debt of gratitude because those children will know – and practice – compassion.  The children who have been hurt, will hurt others.  It is a given.  As adults their trend will continue – they will hurt other adults.  We need to stop hurting children.  That is the quickest way to set this world straight.

Transgression has consequences.  Keep that in mind when you are next tempted.

Limitations – Blog No. 50

1001052_393339104104509_1687252269_nYou create your own limitations.  Break with your tradition of thinking and remove the worn out ideas – your core ‘staple’ thoughts – to free up space for a new world-view.  It is time.  There is not time any longer for being overly precious about your angers and your hatreds – you must see each one, face to face, and then let it fly.  It is time to let go of your toxic thoughts.  Write them on paper and set fire to them.  It is cathartic watching the flames.  I suggest you do not get too sentimental about your letting go, either.  Clean up your head willingly, it can only help you.  Your thoughts contain your future, they are the building blocks of your existence.  Make them strong.  Positive.  And think big.  Dream of a world where there is more peace and tolerance, more respect and goodwill, compassion.  Expect that world to materialise.  But first – remove the boundaries you set for yourself by addressing your own negatives.  When you can look at your negative behaviours and your destructive behaviours and understand why there are times when you act (seemingly) to sabotage your own life, then you will find yourself closer to knowing just who you are and how powerful your nature is.  Your nature is essentially what you are. What you are is not the same as who you are.  You must know both.  That is why being natural is important.  It shows respect for your beginnings.  If you cannot be easy in your natural state you are missing out, it is a peace like none other.

This world has a self-consciousness that needs exploring.  Perhaps there are too many mirrors?  Perhaps it matters too much in some places how you present yourself to the planet.  But in these places where picture-perfect matters the people can be left to themselves, they are all aspiring to be the same object – so they become one and the same and no one needs to worry.  Narcissus looked first to himself and last, at himself.  When you have a mindset that understands shopping for a living, celebrity-worshipping and very little else it is harmless in the larger scheme of things.  These people do not contribute to our days.  Their attention is focussed elsewhere and their heads are empty.  In fact their free space is legendary.  It is when these people speak shit that we have a problem.  Their thoughts are very easy to deflect but their words cause a nuisance.  There are too many ignorant people speaking hatred with authority and that is a problem in our western world.  How many people these days read more than the daily tabloid?  You cannot get anywhere in life by reading the tabloids.  Please.  Fill your head with relevant facts.  Who this woman is who slept with 30 men in her quest for fame is not a relevant fact.  Lazy people do not bother to read about the state of their own futures in the hands of the dodgy politicians they put in power – either through voting, or NOT voting.  There is no excuse for not voting.  None.  Lazy people do not bother to read about what state their world is in, how their natural world is shrinking.  There is no time for laziness in our current climate.  We need to make a statement against the way things are.  We do not do that by avoiding taking responsibility.  We all become informed – even one new piece of information each day.  That way – you are growing your awareness and you are forming opinions.  It is natural.  You will have an opinion one way or another on this thing, that thing.  It is interesting hearing your own opinions.  You must feel how it feels to believe something.  You will know how it feels.  There is a power behind your idea, your ideas.  You cannot pretend to yourself to believe something.  And don’t worry about believing everything you read – you won’t.  You have discernment and you are equipped to use it.  Check your sources and find reliable facts with which to build your understanding of what is happening to our world.  Trust your opinions but do not force them on other people.  Suggesting is always better.  Put your opinions up against the opinions of others and see how your thinking measures up.  Together we can find a way to make the people who hold power, listen.  It is all in the way you ask them to hear you.  You cannot be unresponsive to an appeal made in earnest, with pure motivation.  It would be to go against the spirit of living and violate our right of abode as citizens of Earth.

This world needs to recognise that limitations are impractical.  If you can conceive of not succeeding then you have the wrong goal.  What is the point wasting time on following to conclusion something that you, yourself, do not believe in?  To have doubts is natural, healthy, it keeps you from complacency.  But do not consider failure before you consider success.  Then you will fail.  You have to be able to stretch your perception to include the possibility that you have everything you need to get you to your best.  Who you are – at this exact moment in time – is enough.  Trust your experiences – always.  Trust your innocence – always.  If you manage your life effectively you will find that you develop your innocence rather than allow it to be lost.  You feed your innocence and learn from experience.  It is easy.  Trust your inner child for guidance.  It knows what to do.  If you have not yet made the acquaintance of your inner child you ought to make your introductions, soon.  Your inner child uses pure motivation.  You can learn a lot from watching its decision-making.
