A Short Tale Of Love, Wealth And Success …

( Reading Time – Approximately One To Two Minutes ).

  

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long grey beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them.

She spoke “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please do come in and have something to eat.”

“Is the man of the house home?” they asked.

“No”, she said. “He’s out.”

“Then we cannot come in”, they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. So he said “Go tell them I am home and invite them all to come in!”

The woman went out and asked the men in.

“We do not go into a house together,” they replied.

“Why is that?” she wanted to know.

One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and then pointing to the other, “He is Success. And I, I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”

The woman went in and told her husband what had been said. Her husband was overjoyed. “This is fantastic !!” he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite in Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with money and riches!”

His wife disagreed. “No my dear, why don’t we invite Success?”

Their daughter  was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!”

“Let us heed our daughter’s advice,” said the husband to his wife. “Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”

So the woman went out and asked the three old men, “Whichever one of you is Love, do please come in and be our guest”

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other two also got up and started to follow him. Surprised by this, the lady asked Wealth and Success, “I only invited Love, Why are you two coming in?”

The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever he goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success !!!”

Your Health And The Big Picture …

( Reading Time – Approximately Four To Five Minutes ).

One of the main differences between Eastern and Western Medicines is the ability to see the bigger picture.

In the East, they take a very different view of the world than we do in the West. If we were both asked to look at the same picture of a man in front of a building, the Western mind set is usually to focus in on the man in explicit detail. However, the Eastern mind would instead focus on the background and entire picture including the man. Our Western culture and upbringing have geared us towards concentrating in on small details and fine points; we are trained to tune in on tiny details and be hyper critical, but sometimes when we do that we lose sight of the bigger picture.

 This is often the case in Western Medicine. By breaking down the structure of diseased cells into more and more minute parts, it often isolates these cells from the bigger picture of what is really going on in the entire body. It then tries to find a chemical or procedure that will have some bearing on this secluded group of diseased cells. Unfortunately this method, when effective, often just covers up the symptoms of the illness rather than treating the cause of it. Continue reading

The Banker And The Fisherman …

( Reading Time – Approximately One To Two Minutes ).

I have come across this classic parable many times. I want to share it with anyone who has not read it before. It is well worth taking a minute or two to read such a clever and valuable story …

An investment banker was at the pier of a little coastal village when a small boat with just a single fisherman docked beside him. Inside the small boat were several large and impressive fish.

The banker complimented the fisherman on the quality of these fine fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.

The fisherman replied, “Only a little while.”

The banker was puzzled and inquired, “Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more fish ?”

To which the fisherman said, “With this I have more than enough to support my family’s needs.”

“But what do you do with the rest of your time ?” asked the banker.

The fisherman said, “Well I sleep late, fish a little, play with my wonderful children, take a nice nap with my wife, stroll into the village each evening and spend time with my family. I have a full and enjoyable life.”

The banker scoffed, “I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing; and with the proceeds, you can buy a bigger boat. Then with the profits from this bigger boat you can buy several boats. Eventually you would have a whole fleet of fishing boats. Then instead of selling your catch to a middleman you could sell directly to the processor, and eventually you can even open your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and the distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to a big town and eventually to a big city where you will run your ever-expanding enterprise.”

The fisherman asked, “But, how long will all this take ?”

The banker said, “Fifteen to twenty years.”

“But what then ?” asked the fisherman.

The banker laughed and said “Well that is the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions from the deal.”

“Millions ? … Then what?”

To which the banker replied, “Then you could retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your children, take a nap with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings and spend time with your family.”

Are Cloned Milk, Cheese And Meats Safe To Consume ?

( Reading Time – Approximately Four To Five Minutes ).

Recently regulations for cloned meat and dairy products have been scrapped in Europe; this gives producers free reign to create as much as they like of these unnatural substances, and then distribute them throughout the Euro zone without the requirements of having to be labelled in any way that would identify them to be different than real milk and beef.

In other words, the next time you buy beef or milk from your local supermarket, you can no longer be sure as to whether it is the real thing or is part of a giant science experiment of unnatural cloning.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not taking the stance of being anti science here; but as you will see as you read on, this new technology is far from being perfected and it has the potential of dangerous risks on many different levels.

 

So what exactly is a clone ? It is supposed to be an identical copy; in this case of an animal like a sheep, cow or pig. Continue reading

How To Powerfully Boost Your Health Through Eastern Breathing Methods – Part 3 of 3

( Reading Time – Approximately Three To Four Minutes ).

So what way should we breathe ? Well, the proper way is complete breathing, it involves expanding both the belly and the lungs as you take each breath in; then letting the lungs deflate back into place and at the same time, pulling the belly in to its original starting position.

If you look at animals, children or babies asleep, you will quite often see their abdomen naturally move up and down in a similar fashion as they are breathing.

How to breathe properly – the full technique …

1) The first step is to breathe through your nose for everyday normal breathing. The tiny hairs in the nose help to trap and filter, dust, toxins and other airborne pollutants. Breathing through the nose also heats and moistens the air, so it is particularly useful in winter.

However, if you find you are overheating, it is best to temporarily breathe through your mouth to cool yourself down and regulate your temperature.

2) Up next is abdominal breathing. Between your lungs and the lower organs is the diaphragm. This piece of tissue can be stretched to increase the capacity and volume of air getting into your lungs. To do this you will need to swell out your belly as you breathe in. This sucks the diaphragm down, massaging your lower organs and allowing more air into you.

When you breathe out, pull the belly in. This will push the diaphragm back up into your lungs, helping them to squeeze out any waste and fluids, and will again massage the lower organs. Continue reading

How To Powerfully Boost Your Health Through Eastern Breathing Methods – Part 2 of 3.

( Reading Time – Approximately Three To Four Minutes ).

Before we learn the complete breathing technique let’s examine some of its benefits …

(1) It increases the amount of oxygen and energy being delivered to your blood. By breathing correctly, you can add extra liters of air with every inhalation. This enhances and refreshes every single part of you. Your organs, tissues and muscles will have more power and ability to do their jobs.

(2) Your mind, which requires the most oxygen of all organs, will feel more awake, alert and calm. This allows you more control of your emotions. You will have more power and awareness to be in charge of them, rather than them leading you.

With all that extra oxygen flooding your brain you should find that your mood is generally more happy and uplifted too.

Also you will find that your concentration, memory and thought processing will all become more sharp and heightened.

(3) Your immune system will have access to a full reserve of energy. And when the body is threatened by bugs, it will easily have enough power to be able to make all the white cells it requires. White cells are the bodies defenders and when it has enough energy to create a big army of them, you will be much more successfully defended against any bacteria, colds or flu. Continue reading

Break Free …

“As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a rope tied to their legs. it was obvious that the elephant could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not.

My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

‘Well,’ he said, ‘when they are very young and much smaller we used the same size rope to tie them and at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.’ My friend was amazed.

These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. The powerful and gigantic creature has limited its present abilities by the limitations of its past.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life holding onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? How many of us refuse to attempt something new and challenging because of our so called MINDSET?

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to make an attempt…

CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.”

How To Powerfully Boost Your Health Through Eastern Breathing Methods – Part 1 of 3

( Reading Time – Approximately Three To Four Minutes ).

In my last blog I spoke to you about how essential it is to maximize your energy to keep all your organs functioning at their highest levels. This will produce the optimum in physical, mental and emotional well being.

It also empowers your body to carry out the necessary functions, repairs and maintenance which will help prevent many ailments or any weaknesses that can allow disease to occur.

There are many methods used in the East to cultivate and gather energy in the body. In this blog update, we will focus on just one of them, the use of Eastern style breathing techniques. Breathing is free and when performed correctly can produce great improvements to your overall health.

Unlike our current Western habit of shallow and unproductive breathing, these Eastern techniques will strengthen our lungs and train us to breathe in a much more beneficial, energy enhancing and healthy way.

In the West, unnatural shallow breathing has come about from several different reasons…

(1) We are spending more and more time inside; working at desks in our homes and offices, playing computer games, watching television or using the internet.

 

Often is the case, that these practices damage our posture. They cause us to slouch or lean over desks or keyboards, cramping and squashing our lungs up, preventing them from opening fully, and inhaling and exhaling properly. Continue reading

What Is Qi And Why Is It So Important To Your Health …

( Reading Time – Approximately Three To Four Minutes ).

Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is the Chinese name for the energy involved in all creation and life. In Japan they call it Ki, in India its name is Prana. Whatever it is called its actions are the same. It quite simply moves, creates, transforms, maintains, activates and holds in place everything in the human being and in the universe. It is the energetic force behind all existence.

 

Every living thing throughout nature needs energy. Plants need the sun’s energy to grow. They even create more leaves in the summer to soak up this energy into them. Our machines too all need electricity and power to make them work. There is in fact not a single thing on the planet which does not need energy to activate it and feed it with life. Continue reading

The Physical Causes Of Our Emotions …

( Reading Time – Approximately Four To Five Minutes ).

We all know that what enters the mind from our interactions with other people and the world can cause us to have certain emotional responses. When we see injustice on the news we may become angry, or when we see others suffering we may become sad and so forth.

But did you know that the internal workings of our organs can also be responsible for generating emotional states ?

Well simply, they can. Every organ can cause our minds to be more susceptible to different feelings and patterns of behaviour.

In this article, we will examine three such states – fear, anger and sadness. We will see how unhealthy organs as opposed to external life events outside of the human body may be creating or encouraging them.

.

We will start with fear. In the West it is often assumed that when one is fearful it is a character flaw; that someone is choosing to be weak, feeble and cowardly. Whereas when someone is brave, they are portrayed as a hero and are to be admired. Some of this behaviour is indeed their character, but in many cases it is merely just a reflection of the health and functioning of their hormonal system, particularly the power of their adrenal glands.

If you have strong adrenals you will be full of hormones like adrenalin, cortisone and testosterone. These great natural steroids give your body a super charge, causing it to stay very steady during any crisis or shock. Continue reading
