Going natural and organic is becoming a popular choice amongst those with even a semblance of enlightenment about what is happening around them. But there are inspirational people
who can help guide the way...
In a world where we are increasingly polluting the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe... not to mention directly polluting our bodies by other means like plastering ourselves in toxic synthhetic chemical products in the supposed and false belief that it may do our skin some good!! It is easy to be less mindful than we should be that we are a complex organism that has both physical and pyschological dimensions that need tending to appropriately.
Most people know that the 'mind' is powerful, but fewer folks truly realize just how powerful the influence of our beliefs is upon the well-being of our whole system.
The incredible human body can seemingly 'shrug-off' the toxic effects of many of the abuses we perpetrate upon it on a daily basis. This is actually not quite true -- but seems so because regular abuse is a process of attrition, that eventually takes it toll, and ultimately becomes interpreted as the 'natural' occurrence of so-called 'aging'.
Few of us will either not know of a family member, or a friend, or had direct experienc of being told by our medical adviser that this-that-or-the-other problem we are suffering is 'to be expected because of age'! We live in an era of expectation of decline and gradual development of painful and perhaps incapacitatin, chronic illness as a 'normal part of growing old.This is 'kibosh'
... or what might otherwise more 'coarsely' be described as 'utter bollocks'.
There is in fact NOTHING that says that we should expect to suffer painful, life-quality-limiting, mobility-reducing chronic illness as a matter of course as we mature and become an 'older' human being.
But the combination of the power of 'belief' and 'excpectation' of the development of such debilitation and the compound effect of 'daily' toxic abuses is continuing to create the illusion that we all end up either crippled physically and/or mentally deteriorating into a senile and senseless condition.
What would be truly incredible would be if we COULD so regularly consume foods, breathe air, and drink water that all contain known carcinogens, mutagens and other chemical debilitators -- alongside a diurnal diet of 'noxious-news' from all forms of media, alongside suffering increasing stress as a result of 'modern lifestyles' -- and not end us seeing our truly miraculous self-repairinf bilogical system finally beginning to 'give in' after about half-a-century.
Undoubtedly we need to take-stock of all the ways we are regularly undermining our health and begin to make the necessary changes whilst our system still has the resilience to recuperate.
This must be done via all the avenues possible.
And while many people do choose to 'clean up' their act, after they pass that milestone of the 40-th year, by improving dietary habits, increasing their regular exercise, reducing 'habitual' toxic habits (like drinking alcohol and using tobacco), or taking so-called 'recreational' drugs and try to reduce their reliance on pharmaceutical drugs, whilst also ensuring that their sources of air, water and personal products are as toxin free as possible...
They can still often forget to 'tend' to their most important resource of all...Their mind!
Refusing to wallow in daily tales of world wide misery and woe by switching off the TV, the radio, and refusing to read (I hesistate even to call them) news(hah!!)papers -- is just a start...
Nourishing your mental resources by absorbing the lessons imparted by inspirational individuals is another useful step to take...
Here is a link to a good number of free videos, recodings and articles from and about some of the leading lights of the new-wave of holistic thinking and being:Inpirational People: resources at Gonando.com
There is a lot to absorb -- so switch off that daily diet of TV news and take it in over the coming weeks...
It will be better for you, for those around you, and ultimately for the world, if you can learn to break free of the 'stranglehold' that the media may have upon you --
TV, radio and much of the Internet are simply the 'weapons of mass distraction
' that are employed in order to impose the will of the commercially powerful elite... and shape your mind, your choices and your beliefs... and it is only you who can choose to stop being mesmerized by this 'aural and visual' poison is intoxicating your brain.
If you progress in life in the expectation that after you pass 50-years of age you will inevitably begin to 'fall apart' -- rest-assured what you believe will become your reality...
It is time to change your beliefs!
