Books To Discuss Over The Phone

AnthonyBourdain and Laurie WooleverWorld Travel:An Irriverent Guide

I don’t like the stuff about this man’s death.

But I am sure he will be missed.

I borrowed his last book from the library.

And I believe the writer, Laurie Woolever, did a wonderful job.

I have talked to my sister (a fan) about the book and listen to her experience with the show.

I plan to buy her and me the book to have future discussion about it.

Anyway, I do like it and recommend getting it from your local library.

Is Alcohol A Problem?

Getting drunk is a problem for some.

For most it is a lack of something to help keep a balanced lifestyle.

Why drink? Is it becoming a bad habit?

Do you make mistakes with alcohol?

Can you distinguish what works and what does not work with your day to day alcohol consumption?

Booze is fun when you are able to afford it and use it responsibly, but too much fun=too much alcohol.

A good thing to do is challenge your self to live with alcohol for 30 days and with out it for 30 days and then decide what works for you.

Trust enough people to tell you the truth about your use of this drug.

Perhaps, you are willing to watch a vid about it?

Awareness is key, please watch the vid below.

Quiet time is important: inner peace.

Romantic Freedom

Socrates did it best.

He took the test: the proper use of impressions.

Or so says, “Xenophon’s Recollections of Socrates”.

She says,”The Memorable Thoughts…” or things of Socrates by Xenophon.

He gave his guidance through oracles and divinations.

He knew himself to abstain from all vices and practice all virtues.

He loved wisdom and showed himself to those through his questions and tolerances for all those who may take offence to his reason and his actions.

He suffered those others to be a citizen of the world.

He did not take fame, fortune, or foul play.

Practice and routine and ritual made great habits of virtue for the man Socrates.

He died as he did live: wisely.

He took responsibility to be free.

He worked his entire life as a philosopher and he became free.

Major Diseases That Appear To Be Improved By Nutritional Interventions

It seems that nutrition, in the form a ketoogenic treatment is helpful for many medical problems.

If only more work could be done in research and development in this area.

There are a lot of data used to show the positive impact of the ketogenic diet on many people.

Please support the effort, awareness is key.

Please watch the vid below.

It appears to be a pattern here.

A Medical Opinion

What about healthcare, the pandemic, vaccines, big pharma, nurses, doctors, and more on opinion.

Whose opinion do you need to hear to help you make an informed decision on your individual health needs?

Perhaps, you may know John Campbell.

He has been reporting on Covid all through the Pandemic.

He has changed a lot over the year.

He may have something to say about all of this.

If you need to hear an opinion at the moment, you might consider the vid below.

What are we going to do? How can we do our best and do no harm?

“If” by Rudyard Kipling sounds like a stoic but to my mind, Epictetus is the stoic and may just know how to live a happy/good life.

Many people may never get to the point of applying the good life to their way of being because it is difficult to learn how to apply these principles when you don’t have a teacher who embodies them.

Anyone of the top ten books above will introduce the best teacher to show you.

Epictetus shows us what is important through his actions: a slave who excelled at stoicism and as a teacher.

In old age, he created a family through the need to look after an older boy. He probably enlisted a servicewoman to help him look after the child.

Listen to what he has to offer, his wisdom is a primer for a happy life and then some.

What Really Happens As We Die?

We age, we change, as we grow older, as we loose more control over our mind and body.

We get ill. We catch colds, viruses. Flus, diseases like cancer, our immune system begins to fail.

We slow down, we eat less, we sleep less, we have lesser ability to live.

I am learning to accept all the above and more.

I do my best each day and do no harm.
