3 Ways to Stay Current on News Without Losing Your Mind

If you are like me, logging onto Facebook or reading the news can be an emotional upheaval. Depending on what the news is, it can even become an anxiety trigger. At it's worse; it can alter my energy and change the course of my day because of how it affects me.

I am happy to be a sensitive person who feels things deeply. I think this is a good experience of life and I would never change it. However, for those of you who are open and sensitive like me, you know how sometimes the truth of something can strike you at such a deep chord, there is no other appropriate response but grief and tears.

Staying abreast of current events is important. It is valuable to know what is going on in the world and to get involved and let your voice be heard on topics that are important to you. However, it is also imperative to keep your own wellbeing and health in the forefront of your attention.

Here are 3 things I do to help me stay grounded and vibrating at a high level (even while staying current on what is happening in our world.)

Set a timer

It is easy with social media and cell phones in our pockets to be constantly bombarded with news. We must decide on how much input is optimal for our health and wellbeing on a daily basis. Checking our phones every 30min is not going to change the world or what is happening in it – but it will change you.

For me, during the week, my maximum news / social media saturation is about 45 min. I usually check in with the world in the morning for around 30min, and then some days I check in again in the late afternoon for 10-15min.

I am also a firm believer in fasting. News and social media fast, that is. It is important to go an entire day, or even an entire weekend without logging into social media or reading news on the computer. All of us have people and experiences in our lives that are more important than our screens (news and social media). I recommend looking at how you spend your time and making sure that the time you spend with each experience is in alignment with how important that experience or person is to you in your life. For example, if I am acting unconsciously, I can easily spend more time on Facebook than I do with my husband. Because my husband is vastly more important to me than Facebook, I find more joy, love, and connection when I live consciously and prioritize appropriately.

Each of us has a natural wisdom, and when we are constantly putting things in, we leave no time for that wisdom to come out. Furthermore, when we read things that create stress for us, our bodies are filled with the stress hormone cortisol.

Christopher Bergland says, “Scientists have known for years that elevated cortisol levels: interfer with learning and memory, lower immune function and bone density, increase weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease … The list goes on and on. stress and elevated cortisol levels also increase risk for depression, mental illness, and lower life expectancy. ”

I witness daily how difficult it is for my clients to use their phone and computers with intention. I understand that for some (many) people self-control around how frequently they 'log on' is a challenge. However, when most people allow how it is affecting their health to really sink in, it becomes obvious that it has to be monitored by your self-control.

Choose the time of day that you engage

Choosing the time of day that you engage in reading news and social media is really important. It is unwisely to stress yourself out right before you go to work, have dinner with your family, climb into bed, or engage in a creative process. Knowing that you might see or read something that will create an emotional response in you, you have to choose the best time to expose yourself to that input.

I like to engage with news and social media in the morning before I exercise. Nothing helps me manage my stress better than exercise and nature. If I am emotionally triggered by news in my feed and then I go for a run outdoors, I can come back and begin my workday in a grounded and positive energy. If I read the news up to the time that I begin my work day, I will find it difficult to hold the space, think clearly, or be creative.

If I 'log-on' in the afternoon, I will try to buffer that by sitting on my porch appreciating nature for 5 min, or having a single-person dance party. This way I make sure that when I go into the last part of my day, which for me is dinner and time with my family, I can be fully present with them and experience the depth and width of my capacity for joy.

End on a positive note

I enjoy having a go-to list of websites, songs, videos, stories and poems that raise my vibration and leave me feeling upbeat, positive and hopeful about our world. It is easy to be arranged by the negative – but there is an equal (if not more) amount of positive. People are helping each other, they are showing kindness to each other, they are giving of themselves, and they are caring for animals and nature. Allow yourself to witness it and feel uplifted by it. Take care to gain perspective and see the entire picture so that your focus (thoughts and feelings) does not become pinpointed on the negative in our world. Taking a few minutes to end on a positive note is like having an after dinner mint. It leaves your brain with a sweet and refreshed palate.

Why Should You Learn Taekwondo?

If you are looking for a great family activity, or perhaps just want a fun way to stay active, then why not consider taekwondo (TKD)? This enjoyable sport has been available in the US for a number of years and there have been numerous people who have discovered it. But what exactly is its draw? And, better yet, what benefits are there in learning the moves of taekwondo?

Why Learn Taekwondo?

· Family Friendly – Ideally, TKD is great for students as young as 10 years old, though there are many children who start at earlier ages. So, signing up the whole family is great way to strengthen your bonds and build some awesome memories, too.

· Self-discipline – A student of taekwondo must show self-discipline in order to be successful. The moves and balance needed to perform the various skills such as punches, kicks, blocks and patterns keep both the mind and body stimulated. However, learning to control everything for the precise moment it is needed takes discipline. This discipline can help in other areas of life, too!

· Exercise – Let's face it, going to the gym is always fun – even if you enjoy the workout. However, TKD offers an exercise routine that flexes your muscles and stamina, thus improving endurance. As a result of weekly taekwondo, you will improve your body's tone, overcome physical challenges and improve your joint range of motion. And, in doing TKD, you will also learn how to breathe properly and thus reduce stress and the staggered breathing that often accompanies working out.

· Self- Defense – Knowing how to protect yourself is a must in today's culture. Because TKD focuses on kicks and strikes with the feet and hands as well as providing an understanding of how to use evasive moves, you can protect yourself should be attacked.

· Coordination and Flexibility – By doing TKD a minimum of once a week, you are improving your body's coordination and flexibility making your range of motion better. This will stand you well either it is applied in self-defense or just being better able to do those task that once cause pain.

Learning taekwondo is something that the whole family can enjoy. It offers a chance to spend time together, improve your balance, provide one with basic protection skills and feel a sense of accomplishment. Plus, in training together you can encourage each other along the way and build a tighter family bond. Do not put off looking into this great sport. It is something you will be able to use your entire life – and who knows- it might even save your life! Look for a local place to learn – you will be glad you did.

Dr Ken Cooper’s Steps to Good Health Gets a Much Needed Upgrade


Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, now in his 86th year, is the most famous living guru in the fitness field. He's the father of the aerobics movement which books, medical clinic, research and lectures have probably converted a million or more couch potatoes into regular exercisers. Cooper's first book, entitled Aerobics, reminds some of the wisdom of Schopenhauer, who noted that all reforms have three stages: first they are ignored, then vigorously opposed and finally accepted as self-evident.

I know Dr. Cooper. He and his wife Millie are widely agreed. Only a crank would niggle, cavil, nitpick or get snitty about his work. Really – who would dare put forward a negative assessment about any recommendations from this storied exercise guru? Well, I would.

I take exception to Cooper's much-publicized Twelve Steps to Good Health. Cooper's 12 Steps should not be confused with the better known 12 Steps of Alcohol Anonymous, the 12 Steps to Boost Your Health for Life by Joshua Rosenthal or the book, Twelve Steps to Psychological Good Health and Serenity by Gabriel MA Segal. I'm not enamored with these 12 Step approaches, either, but this critique is only about Dr. Cooper's distinct 12 step recommendations.

Before I describe my concerns, have a look at Cooper's Twelve Steps to Good Health.

1. Stop using all tobacco and drugs.

2. Limit alcohol to no more than 10 drinks per week.

3. Start exercising.

4. Use less salt, eat less fat-especially animal fat.

5. Eat more fresh vegetables.

6. Avoid obesity.

7. Take proper diet supplements, including calcium and antioxidant vitamins C, E and A.

8. Faster your seat belt.

9. Avoid exposure to the sun.

10. Get immunization shots.

11. Get adequate prenatal care.

12. Get regular medical examinations.

The steps are boilerplate and obvious (avoiding smoking and obesity), overly general (how much more of the good things), arguable (taking supplements) and, in one case, inapplicable to half the population prenatal care)

In short, they do not amount to much. From such a vaunted fitness expert, I think we should expect 12 innovative, specific exercise tips we do not already know, all reasonably specific.

Of course, better would be 12 REAL wellness tips.

Cooper's Steps Reconsidered

Here is a critique of each step.

1. Stop using tobacco and drugs? Are you kidding? That's impossible for most people because they would not be dead dead or alive with tobacco products. (As for drugs, well, that depends on the drugs.) Anyway, most people do not smoke or misuse drugs, though pain relief (opioid) drugs are a serious problem! A substitute step for those not practicing this egregious aspect of self-destruction: Try experiencing at least 23 good laughs daily, more if possible.

2. Ten alcoholic drinks a week? That's too many! Alcohol is fattening, expensive and often contains sugar. Excessive drinking often causes one to appear stupid. A substitute step: Drink at least eight glasses of water daily.

3. Start exercising? Where have you been? On the moon? Nobody can be well without regular exercise and premature illness and death without it is guaranteed, unless you die first from an accident or something. Do not go into middle age without it! A substitute step: Increase your exercise regimen! Do more than the minimum daily requirements for disease avoidance. Follow the advice of the late Dr. George Sheehan – be a good animal and move often, with grace and power.

4. Less salt, less fat? You can do much better. Consider becoming a vegan. Even a half-ass vegan, or part-time vegan, AKA vegetarian. Doing so will contribute to less animal cruelty and probably weight loss, should you need to lose weight.

5. More fresh vegetables? Depends. Depends on how much you're eating now. A substitute step: Put less focus on food and more on adding meaning and excitement to life. Nurture your passions.

6. Avoid obesity? Of course. Good idea. Be sure to also avoid exposure to radiation, hungry reptiles, the Republican Party and bubonic plague, while you're at it. A substitute step: Commit to achieving and maintaining a fit body through life-long exercise and sound eating habits.

7. Food supplements? Few need them. The Harvard Health Letter notes that if supplements actually worked (doubtful for most), they would have side effect risks as well as benefits. No drug is absolutely safe, even if taken as directed.

8. Fasten seat belt? You need Dr. Cooper to tell you that? Go much more: make sure your car's air bags are not under recall, do less motoring and, when you do drive, never ever under any circumstance text or talk into a phone that you're holding. And drive defensively, assuming other drivers in and around you are mentally challenged and not likely to drive sensibly.

9. Avoid sun exposure? What planet are you currently inhabiting? If Earth, this step will be challenging, to say the least. We all need a bit of star light but get yours earlier or later in the day, whenever possible. Never sunbathe or use a tanning booth and cover up as much as practical.

10. Immunizations? Sure – annual flu shots, vaccinations for children and, as required, for travel to hazardous environments. But, put a REAL wellness spin on this one – immunize yourself against worseness. That is, make efforts to avoid associating with negative people, design your environment to support growth and development and do things that naturally make you feel positive and cheerful.

11. Prenatal care? Good idea if you're pregnant. A more broadly applicable step might have occurred to Dr. Cooper. How about seek work that's challenging and meaningful, in an environment where you associate with positive coworkers. Also, work at becoming very, very good at what you love to do with the idea that, ever, someone or many people might want to compensate you for it. Example: writing a regular blog for SeekWellness! (I'm still waiting – you have to be patient.)

12. Regular medical exams? Oh, the humanity, the horror. There is too much medical testing in America. A substitute step: Be more self-reliant. Be familiar with medical self-care – recognize when you need to see a medical professional.


Dr. Cooper's steps seem to absorb most Americans and others have god-awful, self-destructive lifestyles and are unable or unwilling to think and act in ways that enhance best possibilities for a good life. Hmmmm.

Come to think of it, Dr. Cooper might be on to something. Most people could benefit from some of his recommended 12-steps for minimizing ill health. However, in order to go beyond prevention to functioning in exuberant ways, a different set of steps or recommendations is required.

The reformed steps provided above emphasize the positive – the use of reason and the enjoyment of personal liberties for an exuberant approach to life. Warning signs, such as described in the last AWR dealing with disease and organ interest groups (DOIGs), never provide the higher states of genuine aliveness associated with optimal mental and physical wellbeing.

Placebos: The Promise and the Problem

Can a Placebo Cure Pain?

Anything that looks like a viable treatment or a drug, but does not actually contain or offer specific therapeutic benefit, can work as a placebo. Interestingly, though, there can still be measurable effects.

WebMD shares that research on placebos has focused on the mind / body connection. When told a fake “drug” was a stimulant, study participants exhibited faster pulse rates, higher blood pressure, and faster reactions. When told the same fake “drug” was a sleep aid, pulse, blood pressure, and reaction time were all lowered. In another study, participants found measurable relief from depression, sleep disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, menopause, and pain – even when participants were told they were taking placebos.

On the other hand, an asthma study found no measurable benefits from a placebo inhaler, yet the participants reported that the “fake” inhaler worked as well as the real one delivering medication. The fake one worked better, they reported, than sitting and doing nothing.

So what's happening here? Expectations drive changes in body chemistry. Even how often one expects drives changes – real changes, like increasing endorphin production for reduced pain. Negative expectations are also realized, in side effects like headaches, nausea, or drowsiness.

What creates this phenomenon? Cell biologist Bruce Lipton calls it the “Biology of Perception.”

Our cells are living organizations, with their own digestive, respiration, and elimination systems. They Thrive by sensing, through the cell membrane, which things they allow to flow in or out. Decades ago, Bell Laboratories ran an experiment providing oxygen and removing waste from cells, and decided eventually to terminate it because apparently they could keep these cells alive and healthy forever.

In a larger organism, though, like the trillions of cells in the human body, the cells no longer obtain information about the environment directly, since the body boundaries are far beyond the perimeter of the cell membrane. So, the cells rely on information sent them. The brain decides, and electro-chemical signals wash over the cells, telling them about the outer environment, and the cells respond accordingly.

Except there's a problem – our perceptions can be mistaken.

Every time you thought you saw something but did not, thought you heard something, felt something, but did not, your brain nonetheless sent a signal through the central nervous system, and committed to being part of the group, your cells believed it .

Something made you start, and your stomach lurched, your pulse quickened, your blood pressure spiked, your muscles tensed – all because your cells reacted as if the danger were real. Like it or not, you now have unneeded adrenaline in your system. Likewise with disease, injury, and pain – your cells respond not to reality, but to the brain's perception. And if that perception is exaggerated, the brain creates unnecessary pain, setting in motion physical processes that themselves can become sources of reactions that create more dysfunction and pain.

Deepak Chopra tells of the patient who cancer had spread to the bone, and this person was in great pain. After work at the Chopra center, the pain went away – but the oncologist told her not to worry, that this was all “in your mind,” and that the pain would return! And with that fresh perception, indeed it did return.

Another gentleman was told by his doctor that he was severely anemic. The doctor asked all sorts of questions about what felt and experienced – do you feel faint, do you wake up with shortness of breath, on and on, all answered negatively. The doctor expressed amazement. And that night, for the first time ever, instead of feeling fine, this man woke up suffering from shortness of breath.

A famous 1957 study tells the story of Mr. Wright, suffering from advanced lymphosarcoma, his body filled with tumors and excess fluid. He convinced his doctor, Dr. West, to allow an experimental drug, Krebiozen, even though Wright was too sick to be allowed in the drug trial. Ten days later, he left the hospital, cancer free. However, two months later the scientific literature reported the trial showed Krebiozen was ineffective. Wright read the report, became depressed, and his cancer returned.

At this point Dr. West, wanting to help, chose subterfuge, and told Wright he had a new batch of highly concentrated, ultra-pure Krebiozen he could give him. What he really saved him was an injection of distilled water. Wright's tumors and excess fluid again disappeared, and he lived disease-free for two months-until the AMA declared the drug useless. Wright's cancer returned, and he died two days later.

So did these patients' perceptions heal them? Maybe. Were the doctors right, that the conditions would return, and the temporary relief coincidental? Also possible. That's the trouble with simply giving placebos as treatment – we do not actually know what will happen. Oncologists will tell you, for example, that while they can share statistics, every cancer is different, and every cancer in a different body is different. Our bodies and how we experience things are also all different-depending on our perceptions and what we send our cells. There's no reliable mechanism for place delivery.

Then there's the ethics problem. If doctors lie to their patients, is that OK? Patients would then question anything doctors said, never knowing which was true and which was invented. And what would separate the practice of medicine from the sale of snake oil? We do have reliably practiced medicine, and this would work effectively end it. So there's no Placebo Medicine specialty.

This is also a problem for holistic approaches. Science works by isolating and testing variables – and holistic practice does exactly the opposite from isolation, presenting a real problem for studying it. Anecdotal evidence is often taken as “proof” – not a day goes by someone does not post the cure for cancer on Facebook (always a different one, and often with the alarmist warning that big Pharma, doctors, and / or the government are suppressing it).

At the same time, we can not dismiss results as “just” the Placebo Effect. If people are cured or cured, it's not “just” anything-it's positive and demonstrable results. So we have to sort out what works from what's wishful thinking and just perception. Not an easy task sometimes.

Is Your Daily Commute Harming Your Health?

Is your daily commute harmful your health?

The daily commute to and from work can be incredibly tiring and frustrating, not to mention time-consuming. But could it also be harmful your health?

Well, the research from numerous scientists and health experts from around the world certainly suggests so. From the hours ofactivity to the passive inhalation of vehicle exhaust fumes, your daily commute to and from work could have the most damaging aspect of your life as far as your health is concerned.

How is my commute damaging my health?

Millions of us commute to and from work every day. It can be a stressful experience with the average total commute being 56 minutes nationwide. However, in London we spend 1.5 hours commuting to and from work everyday.

Here are these commuting habits can harm your health:

Diet – If you're out of the house early ready for your length commute to work, and back late, it's likely you are cutting time from somewhere. Often, it's your diet that suffers. Evidence has shown that many people use their daily commute as a time to consume snacks, from unhealthy coffees and bacon sandwiches in the morning to chocolate, crisps and soft drinks laden with sugar in the evenings.

Mental health – An often under-estimate effect of a daily commute the damage it can do to someone's mental health. Long term tiredness can make you feel stressed and irritable and the stresses of the journey can also have a toil on your mental health.

Exhaust fumes – There is evidence to suggest that you will breathe in more pollution sitting in a car during heavy traffic than you would if you are outside. Dirty exhaust fumes get sucked into the car through the air filters and get trapped in the car. The Royal College of Physicians state that pollution is liable for 40,000 early deaths per year In the UK.

Wasted time – Finally, with so much time spent traveling to and from the workplace, it's often exercising that is cut-back to allow time for the daily routine. Research has shown that those performing a daily commute to their workplace are likely to have a less active lifestyle away from the office.

Can I make my commute healthy?

We now know that our commute can be incredibly unhealthy for our body and mind, but what can we do about it?

Cycle or walk to work – This may not be an option for everyone, but if possible, why not explore the option of walking or cycling to work, certainly during the warmer months of the year. Many employers now offer a cycle to work scheme which can help cover some of the cost of buying a bicycle, for example, while many modern office blocks also have shower and changing facilities for staff that need them. So, if you're within a reasonable distance from your workplace, leave the car at home and get your day off to a healthy start.

Even if you're a little unfit, or based too far from the office to cycle or walk, see if you can get off the bus a few stops earlier or park a little further away from the office so you can start building in some exercise to your daily routine.

Work flexible – An increasing number of employers are now offering staff flexible working. At the very least, this should allow you to vary the hours you work a little which can reduce your commuting time (traveling outside of peak times) and vitally, giving you more time in the evenings or morning to be more active. You could fit in a run, go for a swim or join a gym. It may even be that you can work from home for one or two days of the week, giving you less time commuting and more time to explore getting out and doing some extra activity.

Speak to employers – Here in the UK, the past decade has seen companies begin to implement health at work policies. In addition to cycle to work schemes, fruit in the office and shower facilities, they may have benefits in the form of reduced gym memberships or similar. At the very least, ask your employers what they may be able to do to help counter your unhealthy commute.

Improve your diet – For some people, there will be no alternative options when it comes to commuting, so it's a case of doing what you can. If you drive, make sure you have no unhealthy snacks available to you. Try and get up a few minutes early and grab a proper breakfast, or if you must snack, fill your car with healthy options such as fruit, nuts and seeds.

Other Actions to Take

You can also try these simple measures when you get to work to try and counteract the detrimental effects of the commute:

Always take the stairs – If you work a couple of floors up in a building, try cutting down on using the elevator and take the stairs. Even if you're located on the 30th floor, start by getting out on the 28th and walking up two levels by stairs. These small changes are a good start, and you can increase the floors you cover by stairs as and when you get fitter.

Do not ride the escalators, walk them – If you're getting the train to work and use escalators daily, then try walking up and down them rather than simply riding them.

Go speak to someone – rather than calling a college on the telephone, get in to the habit of going to speak to them at their desk. This tiny change can not only help your fitness and health, it could also help working relationships and communication!

With our commutes getting increasingly longer, it's important to be aware of the potential adverse effects that our health can suffer and how to try and mitigate some of these ill-effects.

The Desire to Live

A common phenomenon is that when one half of a couple that has been together for a long time dies, the other also dies shortly afterwards.

The usual, romantic, explanation is that they loved each other so much that they could not live without each other.

He or she died from a 'broken heart', 'could not live alone', 'was dependent on their spouse'.

Is there a correlation between the death of one spouse and the consequent death of the other shortly after?

The hypothesis is that the desire to live may have a certain effect on the immune system. The brain that is in control of our body may have a shut-down mechanism, which is activated in certain cases. Those cases are similar to fatal accidents or certain illnesses, where the brain knows that it will not be able to cope. This mechanism may control 'suicide cells'.

In recent years, suicide cells or what scientists define as programmed cell death (PCD) has formed the basis for ongoing biogenetic research. PCD is the death of a cell which is mediated by an intracellular program.

There are three major types of PCDs. Type I cell death is called apoptosis. Type II is autophagic and Type III is necrotic cell-death.

Cells can be killed by illegal agents or be instructed to commit suicide. If there is a threat to the integrity of an organism by certain cells, PCD is needed to destroy those cells.

Typical examples of such cases are: cells that are infected by viruses, DNA damage, cells of the immune system and cancer cells.

In certain types of cancer cells apoptosis is triggered by radiation or chemicals used for therapy.

What makes a cell decide to commit suicide?

The author believes that it is the imbalance between positive and negative signals sent by the brain.

If there is a lack of the positive signals (no desire to live) needed for survival and / or negative signals are sent meaning 'no desire to continue to live', the shut-down mechanism may be activated.

There have been numerous reports of cases where patients recovered miraculously after clearly being diagnosed with cancer. This phenomenon may be explained by the activation of the PCD mechanism by 'desire to live' positive signals.

In some cases, viruses that are associated with cancers may use tricks, like producing a protein that inactivates the apoptosis signal. In such cases the cancer cells will not only continue to live and proliferate, but they will become more resistant to apoptosis. Further understanding of those tricks and decoy molecules generated to protect cancer cells would enable researchers to reactivate and overcome those protective tricks in order to destroy dangerous cancer cells.

The author also believes that future research on destroying and removing cancer cells may be implemented in two phases. The first phase would be to distinguish, mark and identify cancerous cells. In phase two the target would be to activate suicide cells in the selected area or group of cells and bypass the existing protection of the cancer cells.

Strong psychological and family support is essential for such a recovery. In addition, the patient must believe in and hope for a healthy and bright future.

The Brain-Gut Connection

You've probably heard about the brain-body connection, but have you heard about the connection between your brain and your gut?

My hope is that this article will provide you with some interesting information on this subject.

The brain-gut connection is a scientific principle that serves as a link between neurology, the branch of medicine studying disorders of the nervous system, and nutrition, the science of consuming foods that are necessary for our health.

I have a question for you. What does food mean to you? Do you see it as fuel for energy? Is it a means of nutrition for maintaining a healthy body? Or maybe you think of food in terms of just the pleasure you get from consuming it?

Whatever your answer is, the food you choose to take into your body affects both your physical and mental health. You could even view it as a piece of information that tells your body how to maintain your health.

Most people do not think of food as a source of disease … or, conversely, as a source of healing.

For instance, neuroscience tells us that cognitive problems could be related to a poor diet.

Is a gut really an important factor for mental health? Yes, it is. The gut has another name: “the second human brain.” Why do you think science has chosen to call a part of the digestion system by that name?

Here's why: Ninety percent of serotonin and dopamine, well known brain neurotransmitters, are produced in the gut-not in the brain. What's even more surprising is that 99% of human DNA (the carrier of genetic information) comes from the bacteria in your gut and has nothing to do with your parents.

One of the functions of the vagus nerve, which extends from the brain and passes through several organisms all the way to the gut, is controlling food digestion.

The gut is the place in our body where inflammation starts. Inflammation ( https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/inflammation ) is the cause of many diseases, including cognitive impairment (ie, trouble remembering, learning, concentrating, and making decisions). Inflammation causes heart disease and cancer, as well.

We can say that whatever happens in the gut has a big impact on the brain. The food, and your food choices, are fundamentally important to your overall health.

The science is positive: 50% of all Alzheimer's disease cases are preventable simply by choosing the right foods. Think about this statement before buying your food at the supermarket or when ordering a meal in a restaurant.

You've just learned some important reasons to take your gut more seriously.

If you want to live a healthy life, learn more about your food intake, good / bad bacteria, pro- and pre-biotics, and other information about your gut.

Are you really paying attention to your food intake and to the brain-gut connection? If not, do not you think it's time that you do?

To Be Strong, First Allow Yourself to Be Vulnerable

I know we tend to equate strength with power.

But history has proven that the most powerful person in a country, usually its political leader, does not in any way guarantee the personal strength of the individual in that role.

Once power has been attained, in some cases, it is the ego that dominates, sometimes nakedly, often cloaked in reasonable, altruistic motives. Alongside of this is usually always a reluctance to relinquish such acquired power.

Vulnerability is a definite 'No, No'. Any suggestion of it in the person or in his or her position is vehemently denied.

Yet time and again people who perpetuate this line are elected to high office. Why is this?

It appears that we are living in a world dominated by a one-sided view of what it means to be successful, with the emphasis on traditional 'masculine' qualities?

This is how strength and power is demonstrated to the world.

In fact such a powerful position very often is the antithesis of what I refer to as Natural Power.

In the system as it exists at present many people have never been encouraged to develop their own Natural Power and therefore they naturally project it on to someone else?

Someone who they perceive to be already higher up the ladder, with more money, more influence, more connections, more ego, more Self-belief?

Their choice bids to be someone who may rectify all the issues that they find impossible or too difficult to address themselves?

But this is how the world is. Signs are that things are beginning to change. But how can anything ever change enough to make a difference?

It may seem counter-intuitive but what if the path to reclaiming our Natural Power would be first of all to accept our vulnerabilities.

I have experienced many joyful and fun times through my life. I also remember the precursors when I was at my most vulnerable. Yet for a long time I just did not allow myself to accept it, let alone feel it.

I was aged nineteen when my mother died. It was sudden. One night she went to bed and did not wake up. My reaction was shock, which quickly turned to anger. In the immediate aftermath I remember being angry with everyone, especially the medical profession.

This was 1967, when treatment for depression was to prescribe medication which, course masked the real problems. Soon the dosage was increased until the mother I had known ever disappeared.

Through her decline, as the elder of two daughters, I automatically took over some of her 'duties', so much so, my performance at school slipped. I wanted to teach but left at sixteen to work in a nine-to-five job.

I quickly learned to be strong. I had to be strong. At least outwardly. I had witnessed first-hand what it was like to become totally helpless and I certainly was not going there.

I married at 22. We had two children and during the first ten years, thankfully, they were happy and secure in our love for them.

But as I approached 32, in the space of a few months, first my father died and then we separated. Again I had to be strong for the children and simply to survive. We moved to a smaller house and, with no foresight and no-one to advise me, I chose to be financially independent.

I diverted my energies into re-training, after three years obtained a degree, then a teaching qualification. I became a lecturer in further and adult education, first part-time, later full-time.

But something happened in the third and final year of my counselor training that began to make a difference. As a requirement of the course, in practicing the skills, we had to talk about real issues. I finally told my story. I could feel some of the armour planning beginning to crack.

The following year a relationship ended suddenly and unexpectedly, the sudden loss mirroring my mother's death. Unable to cope, I entered therapy which lasted for twelve months.

I had finally accepted the existence of my vulnerable Self and was able to grieve for the first time after twenty-seven years.

All that time I had bottled up the sadness, hurt and pain and overlaid it with being the one who always copied, was always strong.

In 1996, urged by my daughter, I took a year out and backpacked round the world on my own. I met so many wonderful people and experienced such amazing sights. It was a delayed addiction. At the age of 48 I was balancing my life and loving it.

In 2010 I was living in France when cancer stuck. Yes, I was probably at my most vulnerable at that time, but this time I accepted it fully. I could admit to being afraid, but had loving support from family and friends.

I sincerely do not think I would have survived had it not been for accepting my vulnerability. If I had been so tightly encoded in my original armour of false strength with no release, I believe I may well have broken.

Have you ever been in a position where outwardly you appeared to be strong and coping with everything on your plate but inside felt at times that you were disintegrating?

What if, for the first time, you were able to accept your own vulnerable Self with its feelings of sadness, hurt, confusion, anger and fear: to be able to connect with those feelings, express them and slowly, but surely, allow your Self to come back into a natural balance.

To experience what it feels like to be mentally and emotionally strong, to embrace your Natural Power.

How to Be Mindful With Technology

I feel that our increasing reliance on technology is affecting our mental health in multiple but disturbing ways. I can not tell you how many times I've been in the middle of a yoga class doing my best to balance on one leg, when someone's cell phone goes off. Recently, it took four separate rings before the woman attached to it decided to turn it off! Needless to say, I had trouble practicing Loving Kindness during that class-as I'm sure many others in the room did also.

Obviously, I'm not the only one who feels this issue needs addressing. A recent issue of Psychotherapy Networker, dedicated an entitlement issue to this topic entitled, Left to Our Own Devices: Is It Time for Therapists to be Concerned? I read the entire issue cover-to-cover and had trouble putting it down because it was so thought-provoking. In essence, a multitude of experts weigh in on whether or not it's possible to be 'addedicted' to technology- mostly smartphones. Both sides are argued with equal conviction and make complete sense. I tend to sit somewhere in the middle, agreeing mostly with those who liken checking emails, texts, and surfing the internet to a 'compulsion' rather than a full-blown 'addiction'. In an article called, The Age of FoMo: Our Brains on 24/7 Alert, One researcher, Moez Limayem, differentiates the two this way:

The underlying motivation to use a mobile phone is not pleasure (ie, as in the addiction model), but rather a response to heightened stress and anxiety- We feel anxious if we're not making use of every tiny slice of time.

In other words, we have become increasingly uncomfortable with moments of time when we have nothing to do other than be with ourselves. Another study led by Timothy Wilson of the University of Virginia, offered research participants the following two choices: do “nothing” for 15 minutes or give them a small electric shock. Guess which one the majority opted for? THE ELECTRIC SHOCK.

There you have it dear readers- the major of us would rather receive an electric shock than be left sitting quietly with only our own thoughts and feelings to entertain us. In the study, this applied more to Millennials and those younger than us older folks, but I believe it still serves as a wake-up call to all of us. This speaks directly to an issue that my clients bring up consistently in therapy. It sounds something like this:


What I point out to people when I hear this response at attempts to slow down, go inward, and to look out the landscape of our inner worlds is this:


Then I gently point out that the reason that they came to therapy in the first place was because they were struggling with any one of the following methods that employed to 'distract' themselves which in and of itself, had eclipsed the rest of their life:

Excessive alcohol consumption
Drug addiction
Relationship Dependencies
And the list goes on …

One tiny way I help clients increase their capacity for mindfulness is asking them to turn off their cellphones for the entire time we are in session. This is often a big stretch for a lot of people and some insist on keeping it by their sides even while it's off as some kind of comfort object like when toddlers drag a 'blankie' with them wherever they go.


Do you have a cellphone? If so, do you practice mindfulness when using it?
Something to try if you feel your cellphone controls your life:
• Try some boundary-setting such as turning it off from 9 pm to 7 am Monday to Friday
• Deliberately leave it at home when you go to a yoga class! The karma payoff will be awesome!
• Try setting it on a ringtone which you find meditatively soothing rather than alarming or jarring
• Practice “cell-free” spaces in your home such as: the dining room table, the bedroom, or bathroom and see what it's like to discipline yourself (and other family members) in this way. You may actually have a face-to-face conversation or even end up playing a board game!
• Consciously decide to turn your ringer off when you're doing something you want to pay full attention to such as: petting your dog, having pillow talk with your lover, or eating a delicious and nutritious meal.

How Aromatherapy Candles Play a Role in Stress Relief

The aromatherapy candles play a great role in soothing the mind and providing relief which causes reduced level of stress.

Stress is a phenomenon that is faced by everyone at some point of life. The intensity of stress may vary and the causative factors can be different as well among different people. Stress makes a person agitated and irritated and he is unable to enjoy life.

Causes of Stress

Stress is a naturally occurring phenomenon. To explain it in scientific term, it is simply the body's reaction to a situation where a body makes a 'flight or fight' reaction. The state of body during that reaction is in an alert state where our mind and body are agitated. This agitation causes us to react for our survival. However, the intensity of the situation may vary from person to person because, the person's experience will delay the reaction or the situation will not be enough to express a proper reaction. Even though the reaction is not fully expressed, it causes stress over a long time.

Therapy for Stress

There stress causes psychological and physical changes in the body which can cause disorders in a person. Prolonged stress in anyone could lead to anxiety, depression and stress related disorders along with physical reaction including constipation, headaches, coronary pain, stroke and mental breakdown. Stress is usually psychological and induced through various situations. The best way to handle stress is to find and solve the stress causing factors. While many people would think that stress can be cured with medication, it is not the solution. The stress should be handled with the help of therapy. In therapy, we can change the environmental cues that can cause stress and help in reducing those factors.


Aromatherapy is a great way of reducing stress. Our olfactory effects means that our sense of smell in which our nose and nasal cavity are involved compose a sensory system that works in cohesion with our other senses. The olfactoryory organs are close to the brain and they have a direct pathway of stimulating the cerebral cortex which can be called the emotional center of the brain. It stimulates the happy, aversive, and sad and anger in the human brain. The aromatherapy can help in stimulating the cerebral cortex via the olfactory methods and helps induce moods that play a role in stress reduction. The olfactory effects also help reduce mental stress and the oil that is used in aromatherapy has proven effects in reducing the effect of stress causing factors.

Scented Candles

One of the most popular devices used in aromatherapy are screened candles. Scented candles have always been a part of therapeutic treatments. They have steadily gained popularity among people for their effectiveness in stress relief. There might be a few reasons why photographed candles are so popular including;

  • Scented candles are cheaper and much easily available.
  • Scented candles are convenient to use.
  • Scented candles have a milder scent that works like an incense which helps propagate the aroma on a wider scale.
  • Scented candles rarely have any harmful effects on health.

Effectiveness of Scented Candles

One of the reasons that screened candles are preferred over other aromatherapy techniques is that they rarely have any side effects. There is no direct contact of the oil and the essences with our skin. During massages and smelling oils, the oils and essences are going through our skin or vaporizing in our nasal cavity. The effect of such aromatherapy is usually heavy. The candles mold and mix with the essences and the oils during their production. They oil are incorporated in the wax and as the scented candles are burned, the oil in the wax is also burned and goes around the room as lighter vapours which have a very mild effect on our olfactory organisms. The mildness of the photographed candles is preferred by many people over other techniques.

Furthermore, the oil smoke yields their essence which have a direct effect on the mental receptors. They sooth the brain centers causing stress more directly which helps in stress reduction.

So, painted candles are a very popular device in the aromatherapy as they provide that goodness of the aromas and oils in a balanced way to the user and create an atmosphere that relieves stress in the user.

Do You Believe In The Importance Of Goodness?

Many people do not believe in the existence of goodness because they had many dispositions in life.

The truth is that we want to be good when we are young and we have an optimistic image of the world, but after facing decption and betrayal, we understand that the cruel world is unfair, and there is no justice on earth.

So, we do not believe that we can survive if we will have the behavior of saints among so many liars, murderers, and thieves. We do not think that goodness is useful in our reality.

We believe that we have to defend our interests and protect our ego.

However, when we are selfish we follow the erroneous mindset imposed by our anti-conscience and by the hypocritical world. We make many dangerous mistakes and we acquire serious mental health problems.

Selfishness is craziness, but we do not want to understand this fact.

The same way, we do not want to do anything to change our reality, even when we see that many things are bad in the world, and in our personal life.

Your dreams will help you understand that having advantages is not what really matters in life. What really matters is the purification of your spirit and your mental health.

Your physical health depends on your mental health and your spiritual purification depends on the elimination of the satanic characteristics that are ruining your thoughts and your behavior.

If you do not believe in the existence of goodness, this means that you do not believe in the existence of God. There is goodness because God exists and He discovered the power of goodness.

Your dreams help you verify that God exists because He never stops sending you enlightening dreams with precious information about your mental health and your life in order to help you develop your human side.

God helps you believe in the existence of goodness because He is very generous with you.

Until our historical time humanity could not understand scientific explanations. Now that we managed to discover the power of science, now that Carl Jung managed to give us scientific definitions that helped us understand God's words in dreams, and now that I simplified his complicated method of dream interpretation, everyone can have a direct communication with God .

Now we can learn how to stop having mental health problems, how to stop having physical problems, and how to stop having many other problems in life because now we can understand how to stop doing what our satanic anti-conscience imposes to our conscience, and imitate the admirable behavior of saints.

The Degree of Life

The opportunities available to the younger generation have become immeasurable and taking advantage of what is on offer is essential to anyone wanting to create a worthy life. To us retirees we were not as fortunately and universities were for the well off so we had no option but to become trainees or apprentices.

However, what we do have is the knowledge and experience that we have accrued over the many years we have lived. This passed on to our children can become of great benefit to them for now and many years to come but the number of years that we will be able to share this information with our spring is absolutely down to us.

Caring for our bodies and minds is of the utmost importance not just for our own quality of life but that of future generations. Falling into the trap of opting for an easy life should not be considered and following this path will only send the wrong messages to our children and grandchildren. As well as giving them the advantage of our life experiences, helping them to conduct themselves in a meaningful and healthy way will ensure that you have done your best for future generations.

As time passes by we learn of the many things that can not be taught in the class room and how to care for ourselves is one of them. Sport is taught in schools but healthy eating is often overlooked; children are often fed what they like rather than what their bodies need. Parents have less time to sit down at mealtimes with their children for a number of reasons and a diet of fast convenience foods is often the easy option. The reason for this is to save time and steer clear of arguments that generally occurs when a child is confronted with a healthy meal they do not like.

When we were growing up there was a certain lack of abundance of dietary options available and we had to eat what we were given or go hungry. In society today this could be seen as verging on abuse but it did us no harm and we grow up eating fresh vegetables and fruit. Processed foods were rarely consumed and our parents worked hard to provide for us but what we received we were appreciative of.

For these reasons it is vitally important to care for ourselves the best way we can to exceed and advise on the upbringing of our grandchildren for many years to come. The ability to manage and maintain a healthy and productive lifestyle will set an example to others who may criticize us as we age but deep down we can become a source of envy and respect.

Nurture, Cherish & Heal – Living Well With HIV

Where there is life, it needs to be celebrated. Where there is hope, it needs to be nurtured. Where there is consciousness, it needs to be enjoyed.

This becomes more important when someone is dealing with a life threatening disease like AIDS.

Reiki does not claim to cure HIV. But it can go a long way in making the life of a person infected with AIDS, far better. From dealing with the trauma of the disease to helping minimize the side effects of medicine, Reiki offers the infected person hope and strength – mental, spiritual and physical.

Reiki works in partnership with conventional medical treatments, enhancing their efficiency and increasing their usefulness.

How can Reiki help?

Pain Management: Reiki can go a long way in helping with the physical symptoms of AIDS. Thousands of patients from around the world have benefited from the healing touch of Reiki.

Boosting the immune system: Reiki can complement the effect of various medicines in helping to strengthen the immune system.

Reduces Side Effects: Some of the drugs used in the palliative care of HIV patients can have quite a lot of side effects. Reiki can help in managing and reducing these effects.

Counters Neuropathy: Nearly one third of people infected with HIV suffer from Neuropathy of one form or the other. Clinical studies have shown that Reiki can reduce the spasms caused by pain and help relax the muscles.

Helps cope with the life changes: Often a person infected with HIV has to face not just the trauma of having a life threatening disease but also social stigma and ostracism. Reiki provides the 'victim' spiritual strength and wisdom to help cope with these life changes. It also facilitates better sleep, cures depression effectively and helps the person get a positive outlook in life.

From self-healing to self-reliance: Reiki can be administrated by a trained practitioner or the infected person himself. When the patient takes the Reiki training and heals himself, he feels more in control.

So what is Reiki?

Reiki is a laying-on-hands healing technique thousands of years old. It was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, in the late 19th century.

Reiki is the God-consciousness called Rei that guides the life force called Ki in the practice we call Reiki.

Reiki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things.

As long as something is alive it has a life force circulating through it and surrounding it.

When it dies the life force departs. If your life force is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get ill.

Life force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life. Reiki makes this life force available to us in abundance.

Nurture your spirit, and heal your body with Reiki.

How Seniors Can Benefit From Reiki Therapy

As we get older, our bodies struggle with everyday chores and life is not always as good as we would like it to be. Aches and pains in our joints and muscles, slow-healing cuts and ugly bruises detract in varying degrees from enjoyment of our senior years. It does not have to be that way though. With regular Reiki treatments, these annoying, bothersome discomforts can be reduced, minimized and in many cases alleviated altogether.

People all around the world, young and old, have benefited from Reiki in the relief of stress, painful injuries, easing of the ravages of diseases as well as physical, emotional and mental conditions. Unfortunately, not all seniors are aware of how much Reiki can help them.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a gentle, hands-on ancient therapy that connects us to the universal life force energy that science confirms surrounds every person and every other living thing. A Reiki practitioner is not a healer per se, but is trained to be able to channel this energy to those in need through the use of his or her hands.

Most seniors are completely alone on traditional medicine. Reiki is not an alternative to this medicine. It works with doctors and other healthcare providers as a supplementary treatment. Reiki is loving, gentle and hands-on. It is specifically designed to reduce stress and remove energy blockages from one's system. We are, after all, mostly energy and like other systems, sometimes we 'bung up'. Reiki calls that 'energy blockage', preventing the normal flow of energy into and out of our bodies.

Hands-on Healing with Reiki

More and more, people of all ages are experiencing and benefiting from the Reiki touch (or non-touch as Reiki is just as effective with the practitioner's hands a few inches above the body as placed directly on it). It often takes as little as one session to begin to feel the difference. Even people who have undergone major surgery or chemotherapy, often experience a shortening of recovery time and easing of pain after Reiki therapy. Because Reiki is just as effective hands-off, people who are sensitive to the touch by others due to neurological or other disorders, can also benefit from Reiki.

Reiki creates an atmosphere specifically designed to encourage relaxation through the use of soft music, lighting and a comfortable environment. Seniors especially find this appealing. Falling sleep during a session is quite normal and has no adverse effect on the outcome, in fact, quite the opposite. If it helps to relax and accept the treatment, then by all means, enjoy some nap time.

Most seniors who receive Reiki treatments, often experience an immediate relief of their symptoms. In others, it could take a few days to manifest. Just as medicine does not work the same way for everyone, a small percentage of people indicate that they see no change. However, many times, family and friends say that they have noticed positive physical or mental differences.

Reiki works best when the individual having the treatment believes in the benefits of energy healing. Understanding how Reiki works and believing in its healing power, goes a long way towards accepting it and benefiting from the transfer of energy being channeled through the Reiki practitioner. Seniors can sometimes be skeptical about Reiki because it is a new-age treatment rather than the traditional ones that they used to. Because of this, a shorter session may be recommended to begin with. This would be followed up with further Reiki education through reading how Reiki has helped others and then leading to a full one-hour treatment later.

Reiki, Seniors and Everyday Life

Most seniors I know have stiffness in their joints and muscles, aches, pains, circulation problems and neurological disorders. Reiki can often help these and help seniors to enjoy their golden years a little more. Senior-aged people generally take to Reiki quickly because it provides the relief they are looking for. It helps to ease their pain and discomfort and give them better ability to use their joints and muscles without fear of pain … which in turn can help with such common occurrences as falls.

As I noted above, Reiki helps most people, especially seniors, to heal faster than surgery and injury. Remember when you were a child and got hurt? The first thing your mom did was put her hand on the hurt area and she probably kissed it better as well. That is Reiki!

Reiki treatment can also alleviate other problems common among senior citizens: respiratory problems, reduced energy and activity levels; Reiki can correct these and can usually also bring generally rejuvenated mental ability.

A common irritation for many seniors is dry, itchy skin. This can be from a number of causes. Reiki can help to provide relief here, too.

Insomnia is another common senior complaint that Reiki can deal with. Reiki is so soothing and relaxing that with some training in Reiki self-healing, anyone suffering from insomnia can be shown how to get a good night's sleep every night.

Too many seniors are not able to enjoy their retirement years because of health problems wherever physical, chronic ailments or mental conditions including depression, loss of memory and forgetfulness, Alzheimer's or dementia. With Reiki care, seniors have a much better chance of increased enjoyment of their lives.

Dementia is a debilitating disease that robs people of their memories and in advanced cases that they often do not even recognize their own family. Sad! But quite often, Reiki has the ability to reach these dementia sufferers through its gentle treatment.

A study by the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) reported that Reiki has the ability to reduce stress, anxiety and depression – all of which affect seniors with dementia. In fact, Reiki is making such wonderful inroads in the world of Western medicine that it is now available in the USA through some 900 hospitals.

Reiki Improves the Quality of Life for Seniors

Seniors often have to deal consistently with loss of memory, lessened ability to function normally; muscle aches, joint and chronic pain, disabilities, uncomfortable and embarrassing problems such as incontinence or the ability to do things for themselves; continuous medical visits, morning and evening medications and so many other things that deter from the enjoyment of what is supposedly to be their happy retirement years. Thank goodness that Reiki is available to help ease those pains and bring some relaxation and enjoyment to the lives of our senior citizens. Reiki really can make a difference by decreasing their level of pain, suffering and sicknesses while increasing the flow of energy and in turn their ability to function better; bring enjoyment back into their lives and generally improve their health, safety, and well being.

Reiki as a Pain Reliever

In a US government conducted research study, it was concluded that Reiki may help reduce pain and the need for painkillers in people about to undergo a medical procedure.

Reiki as a Supplement to Traditional Medicine

Reiki does not replace traditional medicine and doctors' care. It acts as a supplementary therapy and works with doctors and other healthcare providers. It has been shown to have beneficial effects on patients, speed up the healing process and return the patient to full health faster. At times, Reiki even works when other types of treatment do not.

Reiki and Major Diseases

Reiki is also providing to be helpful in providing pain relief to people with major diseases such as heart surgery and cancer. Chemotherapy patients often experience reduced pain levels when adding Reiki therapy in addition to their normal recovery routine.

The benefits of Reiki therapy to people in general, especially seniors, is being recognized throughout the medical profession. As noted above, Reiki therapy is now available in 900 hospitals in the USA and growing quickly as more and more people begin to understand how valuable Reiki can be in treating most diseases and ailments. Why? Because Reiki has proven itself to be an excellent adjunct or supplement to traditional medical treatment. Reiki works – and it can work for you!

How To Change Your Life And Change The World

The scientific method of dream interpretation proves to the world that God is the dream producer and all mental illnesses are generated by Satan (our primitive anti-conscience), which occupations the largest part of our brain.

Therefore, science helped us discover that all religions are true, and that all dreams contain precious messages that cure mental health problems that have no cure because God is a superior doctor.

God sends you the psychotherapy you need in order to become a wise and sensitive human being and He can help you recover your conscience even after its destruction. All dream images give you important information about your mental health and your behavior. You also learn how the future will be unfolded and many other things that are ignored by the hypocritical world.

The fact that your satanic anti-conscience is a terrible monster that is constantly trying to destroy your fragile conscience is a tragedy, but you can eliminate this tragedy thanks to your obedience to God's guidance in your dreams.

God helps you stop being controlled by your wild nature, and become a saint. You follow a deep process of transformation based on acquiring consciousness and changing your behavior.

You also understand that you have the obligation to transform the world into a better place for everyone.

This is a challenge that the human race must stop avoiding.

Now, what can we do in order to change the dramatic situation of the world and cure all mental disorders once and for all?

What can we do in order to help everyone find the ideal person and have a happy family?

How can we stop making mistakes, and stop suffering because of their tragic concections?

How can we solve our existential and social problems, and find peace?

We can obey God's guidance in our dreams and learn how to have the right mindset and the right behavior. We can work hard and do everything we can to save our human side and preserve our conscience.

We can achieve every goal because now we can understand God's words in dreams.

Now that the dream language was clarified and simplified, and now that the existence of the satanic anti-conscience was discovered we can finally have a direct communication with God.

Now we know our position, and now we can understand God's wisdom.

The scientific method of dream interpretation discovered by Carl Jung and simplified by me is the solution humanity needed in order to stop having mental health problems and prevent mental disorders because God is the dream producer.

God can cure all mental disorders. God can correct all our mistakes and help us definitively stop making mistakes.

Everything depends on our voluntary obedience to His wise guidance.

We must admit that God knows how to solve all problems that have no solution and trust His wisdom, after recognizing the depth of our absurdity and evilness.

We are unable to find solutions that work. We do not know how to fight Satan.
