Most talk endlessly about wanting to change in some way, from weight loss to learning French water color technique. This condition gives us various phrases we have all heard before like “walk the walk” or “action speaks louder than words.” In the end, we admire those who take action and hold them up as champions. Many live vicariously through their heroes while simultaneously “lit up” by lethargy and indecision yet based on results, with live with these flaws or weaknesses on a daily basis. How can we be so conflicted and not be on the ground flailing in despair? Perhaps the answer to the last question is hope or a short memory.
Change takes several things. As the mind in key to the process convincing it is of paramount concern. Yet how does one change their mind? We can’t feel, see, smell or taste a mind but we all have one, so how is it changed? Is a mind like a soul? Perhaps, but this is not a theological discussion. Suffice to say, the mind is similar to or the same as thought which meets the earlier outline. The most successful way to change a mind is to educate it. You have heard of “Diagnostic Face Reading and Holistic Healing,” “pH MADNESS” and “The Ancient Raw Food Diet.” These books are best described as profound and inspiring. They are heroic in their scope and dynamic in their results.
Change via educating yourself about what you want to change. You cannot build a computer unless you have a plan and understanding about what you are doing. For the past 100 years Big Medicine has worked hard to make sure that knowledge would be forgotten and more recently, completely unknown. The keys to understanding and workable plans to make those changes are fully illuminated in the aforementioned books. Read them.
The best friends we have may be our best enemies. Few would argue that Big Business and Big Pharma could care less about our well being and only care about showing a fat balance sheet. We know we are marked for financial extraction. When a business that needs people sick to make a living, is allowed to control or dictate its own destiny, the writing is on the wall as to what we can expect from them. We have experienced the fear of not following our MDs recommendations. Most of us have said no or thought about his or her recommendations at least once or twice.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, yet my friend who trusts my enemy is secretly my enemy. When we do not expect an
attack from a location or from an individual, an attack from this neighborhood is often missed or misdiagnosed. Our innocence and trust is played upon by those who need our dollars. As a message is repeated again and again, it becomes truth. This is part of why we do strange things that the most insane advertising says to do. Imagine a song that won’t leave your mind that is put there by lifelong advertising.
Our friends if subject to false information and creative advertising are as good as enemies as we end up trusting a saint with the tongue of a serpent. The only way we can be sure of who is advising us, is to make our own determinations based on experience, and the messages of those not making an income on the your choice of adviser. Few are truly unbiased in their assessment of the body and what affects it. Roger Bezanis and his books are by far exceptional as what he says is true, is based on millions who test his words daily.
