Could the Best Diet be Love?

​Many of you might know that when I was on a fruitarian diet that I had gone from being 222 pounds down to 90. I kept a lot of important things out of my diet (i.e. veggies, unrefined salt) at the time and following a fast, started binge-eating again after not binge-eating for decades. I...

THE LOVE FOR ATTENTION

I was brought up to believe that the desire to want attention is to be kept suppressed. Our parents were raised to believe that if you say you love your child, give them attention when they are crying, hug and hold them, hear them, compliment them, that - that is spoiling the child. And we... Continue Reading →

The Comfort in Division

I am not a fan of nations, flags, borders and customs because it creates division. Some of us might find comfort in division and that might be because there is a base need to feel better than others or feel others are better than us. The peacelessness in separation, however, is part of our human... Continue Reading →

When Science Becomes Religion

The very nature of science is in questioning what we hear and honoring objective personal experience since information is not always knowledge. "Dissent is crucial for the advancement of science. Disagreement is at the heart of peer review and is important for uncovering unjustified assumptions, flawed methodologies, and problematic reasoning." -- I. de Melo-Martin and... Continue Reading →

The High Price We Pay For Fake Smiles

“Whatever you’re going through, there’s no rule that says you have to do it with a brave smile all the damn time. You’re a person, not a freaking hospitality lounge. You don’t have to make everyone comfortable. Just be your real imperfect self.” ~Nanea Hoffman We often say "be yourself", but the truth is, it... Continue Reading →

Why We Might Complain

I love people who complain probably because I love the part of me that complains. It's real. People who complain are real people. Some don't realize that you can still be grateful, fun and positive and still complain. Life isn't easy and we all need each other since we are all a part of one... Continue Reading →

The Trigger System and How it Works

Why we might sweat the small stuff: Hey, I knock people for sweating the small stuff sometimes sitting there feeling so self-proud that I only get upset over the big stuff. Yeah rrrrrrrrright! Then, I pretend to not understand why people get all worked up about meaningless minutia. When we say "don't cry over spilled... Continue Reading →

A “Just Be Happy” switch? Where is it!?

Popular Culture: ​Just be happy. ​ Perceived Fool: Hey, great idea. Let me just flip on that happy switch. Oh! All better now! Thanks for saving me! Popular Culture: Love yourself. Perceived Fool: Oh yeah. I must have forgotten. Let me hit that "love yourself" switch. Presto! Popular Culture: Stop being depressed. Perceived Fool: You... Continue Reading →

The Trap of Black and White Thinking

Extremes live in a box. And at some point, we might feel suffocated and exhausted. One of the most difficult things to do is appreciate and see all the complex shades of gray in life. Often, we only see black or white, this extreme or that extreme. Liberal vs conservative, atheist vs believer, man vs... Continue Reading →

Belief Versus Knowing

The fact that we can find a for-argument, an on-the-fence argument and an against-argument on most topics on the internet is a good thing! If you ever wake up one day and all that exists is one opinion, that's when I'd start to worry. In a world where cult-mentalities are mainstream and where we need... Continue Reading →

The Right-fighters Way to Win Arguments Online

How to win an argument online: ---Misrepresent your opponent's argument when you don't have an argument. ---Misrepresent your opponent when you don't have an argument. --Repeat the mainstream narrative over and over again when you don't have an argument. ---Answer a question with a question when you don't have an argument. ---Insult, shame and mock...

The Hivemind Loses a Bee

There is no room for the Individual in the hivemind. There is no room for Truth in the group. Individuals were never designed to 'fit in'; we were designed to honor our unique spark and stand out. The nail that sticks out gets hammered down. Let them hammer you. If you are true to yourself,... Continue Reading →

Why Listening is the Hardest Thing to Do

​Listening is the hardest thing to do because it requires that you see you're not the most important person anymore. It is you acknowledging someone else is also just as important. Fully listening to someone else and hearing their story is one of the most humbling experiences one can have.

Dealing With Keyboard Bullies

​The internet is like a shark's tank. It's all because people unconsciously still live in the past. They are carrying around large amounts of baggage. All that baggage and pain gets dumped on you instead. The bullies, rather than taking responsibility for their own life and feeling their feelings so they can heal from the... Continue Reading →

What Makes Us Advanced?

Interesting that how advanced a nation is considered is contingent on how much cool technology they have. I'd prefer to think advancement has more to do with whether or not we're capable of unconditional love. I'd rather strive for that, anyway. Oh do I ever love my computer! You take it away, I will be... Continue Reading →

The Victim and The Thriver

It seems as if we all have different opinions as to what a victim or survivor is and many of us disagree with how those words are to be used. I have made up my own meanings as to the difference between these two oversimplified words. For me "victim" is the stage of grief we... Continue Reading →

Conservative VS Progressive in Our Daily Lives

We have the words "progressive" and it's opposite would be "conservative". We usually use them referring to political rhetoric. However, outside politics they have somewhat of a different nuance. I see conservatism as being conventional and honoring tradition and trying to keep what was in tact in spite of whether or not it is needed.... Continue Reading →

What is Positivity?

Being positive might not be so much about our thoughts as much as our actions, beliefs and behaviors. We can think positive until the cows come home, but unless our behavior is an energetic match, it's not positive.

The War Between This and That

When there are two polarizing opinions competing against one another on the grand stage, I wonder if the truth might be somewhere in between. I sometimes wonder if life is all about the different shades of gray as opposed to the establishment-authorized black-and-white choice system. Question everything. Life might not be about one or the... Continue Reading →

On Using Diet to Heal Childhood Trauma

Early trauma can cause, later in life, a physical manifestation if we are not doing our inner-work. If we are interested in healing the trauma, however, it might be important to go on a diet that allows the physical and emotional manifestation of said trauma to feel safe enough to let itself be Known. We... Continue Reading →

Are Our Addictions a Life Sentence?

We have been conditioned to believe that once we are addicted to something, we are addicted for life. But that is a learned belief. It comes from our culture's idea that being sick is either genetic or due to being unlucky. Our beliefs can create our reality. We are enslaved only if we believe in... Continue Reading →
