The morning after new years party

This is a virtual meetup, so you cant show up physically.  If you can just comment or add to the following list of new years resolutions!  Thanks

 

12 New Years Resolutions that will make a difference

 

These are simple and inexpensive things that can be done that will make a difference to your life.  Remember, if you can maintain a good habit for 30 consecutive days it will stick.  Also small things done over a long period are more effective than extremes over a short period. 

 

Drink

1. Drink one 8 oz glass of distilled water (steam distilled water) with one lemon squeezed into it first thing in the morning (cost $.94 per gallon).  Distilled water will not leach minerals out of your bones like milk does.

 

Food

2.  Eat equal amounts (50% in calories) of raw vegan and cooked food at each meal.  This 50/50 rule is the minimum requirement to prevent an immune response, ideally you should do 80/20 (no meat, dairy, flour, sugar).  Protein requirements are 42 grams, for an active raw vegan.  One cup of raw nuts is about 26 grams protein; a bunch of spinach is 11 grams protein, an avocado is 5 grams.

 

3. Try to get 30 to 60 grams of fiber daily, Too much fiber will burden your digestion and too little will neglect your colon. Choose your fiber well, beans are hard to digest, fruit is best if eaten alone and whole, forget the blender.  Try apples, bananas, figs and avocados, and try to go organic.

 

Exercise

4. Aerobic (endurance building)  If you can’t get out walking or running, buy a trampoline rebounder (cost $75 to $300) and put in at least 10 minutes daily, this can be done in any weather or physical condition your in, even if you have arthritics problems. You can also do mind games while jumping to build mental multitasking. For example at each jump you read a word or do calculations from a chart while moving your hands in a specific manner.

 

5. Anaerobic (strength building) if you can’t do weight lifting with dumbbells or barbells due to back problems, buy a total gym (cost $200 to $400).  There is one exercise that will strengthen your upper and lower body without hurting your back and you can adjust the percentage of your body weight you lift. No exercise machine will make you lose weight, you must reduce calories.

 

6. Flexibility (stretching) try to extend your muscles to their full range of motion daily.  Namaste Yoga is an excellent choice (yoga mat $20) There are TV programs out there to help you get started.  You can also do full range motion exercises on your total gym, plus it can be used as a slant board to hang from your heels to reorient a prolapsed colon.

 

Vitamins and Minerals

7.  Forget the processed pills and capsules, and try to get your daily requirement with a juice machine and not a blender (cost of a machine $100 to $400).  Mix carrots or apples with greens, lettuce, kale, spinach, celery, parsley, endive.  You can literally get your minimum supply of vegetables in two 8 oz glasses of raw juice.  Greens should be one pound/glass and carrots or apples 1/3 pound.  In the winter try to get adequate vitamin D from the sun or a tanning spa without lotions or sun screens

 

Detoxification

8.  Buy a one or two quart enema kit and start doing weekly enemas with distilled water (cost $25) better kits are available from the Optimal Health Network.   All of us have some damage to our colons, so a weekly quart water enema may help, don’t use laxatives in the enema. Eventually you should buy a colema board to make your enemas more convenient (cost $250) Also learn about coffee or castor oil enemas from the Gerson Therapy book by Charlotte Gerson and Morton Walker.  

 

9.  Try to do two distilled water fasts per year, 2 or 3 days each. 

 

10.  Consider moving all cleaning agents, old paint cans etc. out of the house to the garage. Install a carbon filter on the kitchen and shower faucet to minimize fluoride contamination.   

 

Mental clarity and alertness

11.  Try to reduce the mind and emotional taxing elements of our society such as TV, radio and newspaper news.  Whenever a TV commercial comes on hit the mute button on your transmitter.

 

12.  Try to reduce contact with argumentative people in your life, even if relatives, life is too short. Calming music or meditation tapes before bedtime will help you get the essential 8 hours of sleep.

    Let's also look at the issue of human gullibility:

    An animal kingdom was once ruled by an evil fox. The sheep in the kingdom became so unhappy they suggested revolt. Threatened, the fox called upon his chief minister, a cunning crow, for counsel. The crow advised the fox how to, very simply, keep the sheep in dazed submission: Treat the sheep like sheep, while calling them lions.

    I trust this simple story gets its point across quite well insofar as human gullibility, and does not need further explanation. Please stop being gullible. Its not attractive and as mature adults, we should know better. If you're operating in a fog, admit it and begin today to look for TRUE answers. . not childish bubbblegame answers designed to make you only feel good. Its not about Feeling Good; its about Waking Up! This is the path of Consciousness and the True Raw Vegan Lifestyle. (not 50/50 nonsense.. or 80/20 nonsense. . because you cannot do otherwise. You CAN! Begin Today)

    Also, vow not to be a Repetitious Repeater: People hear something, and they just repeat it. It has No Value Based in Truth. . . but they just repeat it, again and again. Spirit wants more for us than that. Its very HUMAN to do the above, but we are here to RISE ABOVE the Human Condition. Vow today. . or in the New Year to cease being a Repetitious Repeater. . . and / or to catch yourself doing it - - and then do it less. Watch your life change when you give up ridiculous and false beliefs. . and human conditionings that have No Value Based in Truth. Face the sadness of how shallow you have been. . and then move on to greater levels of SEEING!! SEEING is better than thinking, for it will help you to really know Truth.

    Imagine yourself standing over the bed of a sleeping friend. In a quiet voice you inform him a dog is digging up and ruining his garden. Will he hear you??? Of course not, his sleep is too deep. He cannot even wake up when it is for his own benefit. Only vigorous shaking will arouse him. Shock and suffering serve this purpose. . . but you must use the shock and suffering to run out to the garden - - not to resent whoever wakes you. . Use these wonderful tools: shock and suffering, this year to awaken yourself. . YOURSELF - - not another. . . first put the life vest on YOURSELF! Learn how to truly feed, nourish and care for YOURSELF. . then you will better understand what ails the greater world. . and how it can heal. You may not be able to heal IT. . .because others have to come to that in their own time. . but you will better understand Yourself. . in itself, quite remarkable.

    My comments for whatever they are worth:

    If you eat 50% cooked food, you will continue to maintain 50% of all illness and premature aging. Instead resolve to eliminate ALL cooked food from your diet. Its easy and your energy levels and flexibility will go thru the roof. Also, forget the tanning spa. You don't need it. With a 100% raw food diet, your body more appropriately follows its natural circadian rythym. You will naturally fall asleep at night without the need for artificial devices. You will likewise awaken when the birds sing to awaken you. . or in the winter without bird songs, naturally. What a concept - - Nature knows more than we do! Realize that the raw vegan lifestyle is also a deeply spiritual and awakened lifestyle. There is always more and higher than you think you know right now. Dedicate this year to the growth of your inner consciousness. Give up all shallow and superficial ways. Life is too short. Love to you!
