Well Armed…

Do no harm.

Do your best.

Make a test for all the rest.

Stop yourself or arrest, then decide.

Do I choose freedom or prison?

If you have a choice, leave prison for later.

For soon, you grow old, loose everything that which is out of your control.

So don’t boast or be unruly. Do not sell yourself too cheaply,

In any case, do not prejudge but go bravely without blame, shame, or complaint.

Be always alert to follow the mantra of doing no harm and doing your best.

In this manner, one is being well armed in life to live well in any situation.

Health And Wellness

Happy New Year, it is time to start out the year with the end in mind.

What do you want to work at through the whole year?

It may be worth your effort to poke at improving your health and wellness.

It is never too early or late to learn about what works and how to apply it to your own personal health and wellness.

There are so many areas that can help you on your way to improving your own situation.

Why not look at some of the big ideas on your favorite apps or websites.

Just plug in a few buzz words like ‘ketogenic nutrition’, health and wellness, sleep or exercise.

And think of it as awareness or a start towards getting more involved with your own journey towards a better year.

One vid I have recently viewed is on the topic above called ketogenic nutrition.

It is about an hour long and I recommend watching it in two half hour views.

It is a lot dry, but the speaker is personally involved and walks his talk.

He is will informed and wants to convince people the value of eating well to gain healthy outcomes.

It requires a small commitment of time and efford and may lead to better habits.

What Is Happening Now? (New Year’s Eve Day)

As a canadian, I do not have a particular philosophical school of thought.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_in_Canada

But I seem to have some kind of original thought that reflects canadian thought, in a philosophical way.

IR, or international relations, is one of my sources, that lead me to Realism here in Canada and around the world.

Realism is a theory from IR that states that a place like Canada or any country is only interested in Power.

Some say that Power is found through economics.

I think we are distracted from the emerging realism of our time. Some say re-emerging, because it is based on the number of powerful states that are expressing their power through economics, war, etc.

I think we are confused by government, our own needs vs. the country’s (Canada).

We worry about our pay cheque, our family and friends, survival, and whatever we think is important.

To me, I am concerned about my well being, but I am confused by identity politics and people who threaten me with violence.

I get distracted by functional medicine and individual medicine.

But I believe in doing no harm and my best each day, which amounts to a personal philosophy and a source of my purpose and motive to move forward each day.

To me as a Canadian and a person, I am grounded by Nature, intuition, civil disobedience, philosophy and moving and physical work/exercise, people, engagement, curiosity, mental and emotional challenges, reading, writing and research, and the day to day importance of being here.

I may not care about who or what you are, but this has to be a decision and practice and ritual, or habit that protects me from violence and harmful people/places and things.

Right now, I am doing my best, doing no harm, waxing about the here and now because we are in a new world: Russia, China, U.S.A. There is identity politics, culture wars, cyber wars, and these countries are engaging us with all of it. As a person, I do my best to stay aware of it and take it with a grain of salt. Of course it is serious stuff, and I never seem to learn enough about what is happening right now.

I am busy with my life, as you are, and we are living here, weather we live our separate ways or not, because we relate more and more through limited real estate, and other resources.

I am extremely limited by what I can do about here and now.

I stick with what works for me and practice the best lifestyle I can afford.

I am grateful to the people that keep the city running with all these basics I use each day.

I may not like my job or family at times but I think the struggle is of personal value.

So, common speech may appear limiting to some, but it is a practice. I use it to help keep the focus on the here and now.

Even my language is a canadian philosophical tool….

Happy New Year, 2023!

Non Food Substances

What is food?

And if it is not a food, why are we eating it?

Why are we addicted to sugar?

Why do we eat non food substances like alcohol, sugar and processed food?

It is not a choice?

It is an addiction?

Why are we not eating better?

Are we all sick?

If you are curious, make the effort to become aware.

How To Regulate The Human Body

There are a lot of names that help identify how the body works.

But once you see how it works you need to follow routines, rituals and practices.

This may seem counter intuitive because these systems have evolved over long periods of time and we must learn to trust them and keep them on in better ways.

Can you see the body needs to survive?

When we are in danger, it automatically goes into the sympathetic nervious sytem which is part of the autonomic nervous system.

Basically, this fight or flight system allows the body to run away or stay and fight through the obstical.

The parasympathetic nervous system is also part of the autonomic sytem.

It will feed and breed or rest and digest.

This optimum situation only happens when there is no danger or circumstance to fight or flight.

Together these two sides of the nervous system automatically allow the body to work its best.

Nature has made us this way and it is up to us to learn, understand and allow our body to reach its optimum state.

Check out some info on the parasympathetic nervous system.
