My views on Anarchy

Order / Organization that is for the Greatest Good of All is better than selfish greed in any form. The answer to ineffective leadership is not “no leadership”. It is effective, transformational, high integrity, ethical, inspired leadership. That will not happen until the people change and vote for someone or listen to someone who is healthy.

Anarchy in America (US) would be a selfish, power grab by All (Rather than the selfish power grab by just the select few). Most people in America are unhealthy mentally AND physically. Just about everyone is using some kind of drug. Until people get drug free and address core issues, it will be unsafe for ANY of them to have power that can affect others’ lives. So i certainly don’t trust those people to do behaviors that are the highest good of all when they can’t even do the highest good for themselves. Self leadership doesnt work in a society until people are healthy. Otherwise everyone is just violating everyone else.

Proper leadership is through inspired action and wisdom and leading by example. There are people who do this, but Ameicans don’t choose them as leaders.

I studied transformational leadership in 1985 (and one of the books we used was written in 1967). We have yet to see it in this country (USA). “We, the people”, do not choose to have order that is based in integrity, doing the right thing, heart led, emotional health…Until we, as humanity, choose that love and integrity are more important than money and that healthy emotional behavior is more important than suppression, we, the people, will continue to chose people who lead us astray.

Over and over in this country (US) i see people doing behaviors of “This doesn’t work, let’s do the opposite” A psychologist-friend of mine would always say “180% away from insanity is still insanity”.

We need teachers who teach people what truly healthy behavior is, then self governance might work.

I am tired of the belief that people have that

having more drugs available to the population makes a culture better. That is like saying
“How do you heal an alcoholic? Give him alcohol”. Addictive behavior is very complex, and
unless one is drug-free, they don’t even begin to understand the issues and what is involved in healing – physical, mental, emotional, psychological, biochemical, socially, financial and nutrigenetical. The idea that “Say ‘No’ to drugs, didn’t work. Well then, let’s say ‘Yes’ to drugs”. Is incredibly simplistic, unskilled, uneducated and immature thinking. And it is part  of the addictive thinking structure. Addictive thinking is very black and white, on or off. People are not! They are complex and have the full spectrum of human emotion…Whether they express it overtly or not. Addictive behavior, whether it is low level, like a little alcohol every day, or high level – full blown addition, is not resolved by taking more drugs. It is resolved by addressing the CORE issues underneath why someone is using some drug to deal with life. A healthy person does not have the belief that they NEED some form of drug to make it through life. Health begins with our beliefs about drugs. (I am talking about alcohol and caffeine too. They are as much a drug as any other). To heal completely means that we believe that we can get our human needs met without some drugs and we have the repertoire of behavior to do so. (This of coarse happens after  we address that core issues of why we can’t make it through the day without alcohol and caffeine …)

…I think that if someone has an idea of how to deal with addiction problems, they should spend 5 years without ANY drugs, including alcohol, marijuana, and even sugar (which destroys our immune system). Then they will get a view of whether their ideas really work.

Drugged out, and healed / healing are two COMPLETELY different things. At this point most people (in US) have some form of trauma or ptsd. And most want to run away and not address the core issues underneath their avoidance patterns. People spend so much time, energy and money on their denial patterns that they don’t have anything left to address the core issues.

“Casual” drug usage

On October 1st, 2015 Oregon State legalized marijuana for casual usage.

Since October 1st, we have had at least 3 bomb threats in the schools
and 1 shotting. (Coincidence, i don’t know. I don’t recall any education
given to the public about contraindications and drug interactions…)

Sunday, I was sitting in Lithia Park (Oregon) talking to my mother on the phone.
After about 15 minutes i decided to leave because the marijuana smell
was so strong that i couldnt get any fresh air. (I was in the CHILDREN”S
section of the park, by the swings). My entire way out of the park, all i smelled
was other people’s marijuana smoke.

THIS IS NOT OK. Children should have clean, fresh, non drug air to breathe
and they should have SOME role modeling that shows that it is possible to
make it through life without drugs.

Today, I jogged through Lithia Park (My daily jog for MY wellness and stress
reduction – MY “drug of choice”, running, oxygen rich air and negative ions
from the moving water). I inhaled so much smoke, that when i got home,
i left work early because i was so stoned that I could not get any work
done. THAT IS NOT OK. Other people do to not have the right or freedom to
force other residents to be stoned. Technically I also engaged in “driving
while under the influence”, as I drove home from the park. Which could have
impaired my reaction time, put me at risk for a car accident and / or caused me to get a moving violation.

Most people who are craving drugs have undressed medical issues that are not being attended to. To begin with, Central nervous system disorders should be addressed with appropriate B vitamins and hormone analysis among other things. Cravings for alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes are usually nutritional deficiencies among a whole list of other issues including environmtal toxic overload (not to mention the entire emotional / psychological aspects). Taking drugs
does not make the core issues go away. It actually makes them worse, because not only did the body not get what it needed, it now has a toxin on top of a nutritional deficiency. A human can be exposed to 120,000 different toxins. Our livers are ALREADY overworked. Adding drugs and alcohol to the equation can make a person who is already off balance even more ill. Everyone believes that alcohol is harmless but the truth is that it wipes out the micro biome (friendly bacteria in the digestive track – where 80% of our immunity lies) and has been linked to breast cancer (which is near 1 in 2 now).
Truly healthy people do not crave drugs or alcohol to make it through the day. Their bodies know how to self regulate and they are able to calm themselves down at will.

It has been two weeks since this law went into effect. I am very concerned about what the future holds. I am feeling very upset that there is so much, endless pressure to use drugs. I can only imagine how the young people feel
who are already in a world operating in Maximum Stress Load.

And NO ONE has the freedom or right to disrupt the freedom, well being or health of another. As long as our society does not address it’s core issues, everyone will get sicker together.

Some unaddressed factors that can contribute to bomb threats:

Some unaddressed factors that can contribute to bomb threats:
Isolation, rejection, emotional issues relating to not being understood or accepted for one’s biochemical or emotional individuality
Living in a society that is extremely addictive (books: When Society becomes an addict, Anatomy of an Epidemic…), where one is expected to be happy all of the time or not supported for their negative feelings, overwhelm, anger or pain…
A society that is extremely lack oriented where no one has anything extra to share with another (i.e. emotional energy)
Emotional unintelligence – using drugs to deal with issues – alcohol, marijuana, caffeine are all drugs…(Southern Oregon is one of the most addictive places in the country)
A culture’s lack of customer service skills
A culture where people are VERY selfish
A culture where people put money or physical things before others emotional and / or spiritual needs
Workaholic cultures that do not respect the emotional / and or physical health of people
Racism, discrimination, scapegoating, negative profiling, bullying…
Us and them thinking and projection onto another who is different that they are a “them” or “the bad guy”
A narcissistic culture where people do not own their emotional issues and they project them on to other targets – “you are the problem”
Having leaders who appear diplomatic and happy all of the time, but uses drugs or cigarettes to deal with his emotions behind the scenes
Economic injustice
The war between the rich and the poor thinking
Selfish people hurting others to get ahead
Beliefs that it is ok to harm others to get ahead
A culture that lacks ethics, integrity or social responsibility.
A culture or belief system that it is “ok to do harm” as long as you do not get caught
rather than having any sense of morality to do the right thing, regardless of who is looking.
A cultural belief system that if harm has come to you, it is because you deserved it.
Lack of ethics for a few to succeed, where honest people are disadvantaged
Poverty
Unemployment and the emotional overwhelm and crisis that come with that. (among young people coming out of college – 1 in 2 if not more are unemployed oftentimes carrying up to $80,000 in debt)
A culture where there are no calming, pharmaceutical grade nutritional support for those in crisis.
Homelessness or the fear of it
Insecure or unstable home situations
Unreasonable expectations of young people, their capacity to produce or to be emotionally stable
Unreasonable or impossible to meet standards being put on children in the education system
Go, Go, Go standards of society ignoring or disrespecting emotional or physical health and well being
Insecure housing situations
Narcistic parents who take drugs and judge their children for being “oversensitive” or “overreactive”
Parents who drink, smoke, use stimulants… and who judge their children for taking or being on other drugs. (Children learn from example / modeling)
Parents who are numb, shut down, emotionally blocked, addictive, who are adult survivors of physical, mental, emotional abuse or neglect, and who project their issues on to children
Parents who are “flat” in their emotions because they have low level depression and don’t know to go to a doctor to address their hormonal issues and judge their children for being emotional
Judgement of young people’s range of emotion and unreasonable beliefs about them “being” or “staying” even-keeled rather than loving them unconditionally for having the full spectrum of human emotion
Unhealed abuse issues
Hormonal imbalance
Adrenal exhaustion
Environmental Toxic Overload
Doctors who do not understand why the body of the child (any person) is anxious, overwhelmed, or depressed and medicating instead of healing them (Naturopathic doctors are on the right track)
Insomnia
The lack of wisdom about and availability of suitable pharmaceutical grade nutritional support for insomnia, depression and anxiety.
Medication that have suicidal or homicidal side effects
A culture where support for insomnia, depression and anxiety is only psychological and no one deals with the biochemistry, or where the biochemical support has extreme side effects that are way worse than the issue for which it is being prescribed (Ie “in some instances, this support can cause death…”)
Using a stimulant to treat anxiety (CALMANTS should be used)
Malnourishment
Generation differences between parent and children where the parents have NO understanding of the level of pressure that is on children (and young people) at this point or caring about their feelings and how overwhelmed they are
Transgenerational Epigenetic Influence – the passing on of ill health from parent to child because the parent did not address the health issues BEFORE the birth of the child. (Usually parents who drink or use caffeine are already in stage one or stage two illness. The child is then born with these same health issues)
The belief system that men are supposed to be calm all of the time (a pressure cooker ready to blow) and they do not get the emotional support that they need.

Overpopulation

I would like to propose the idea, that because so many of the issues on the planet at this moment in time are a result of OVERPOPULATION: ie food supply, fighting over resources, energy, safety, carbon emissions, encroaching upon animals’ territory…
perhaps instead of GMOs, wars, unemployment…

(Overpopulation isn’t when you have occupied every possible livable place you can find, it is when your population is exceeding the amount of resources for the area.)

perhaps, just perhaps,
we could all just have LESS children
(except for the people already practicing zero population growth – power to them)
perhaps we could deal with the issue at the cause,

perhaps we don’t need to get married at 19, 20 or 21 (before we are even done with adolescence, which technically ends at 25, or before we even know who we are)
perhaps we don’t need to be just like our parents or family of origin,
perhaps reproduction isn’t as important as we all think,
perhaps we can get around the concept of “natural selection” or “survival of the fittest” by not having as much “competition”,
perhaps we could live in the family of humanity and not have to worry about “propagating”,
perhaps religions don’t need to expand by encouraging congregants to have more children,
perhaps we could care for each other and get some of our family needs met through spiritual family,
perhaps we could help our peers and family members who have children, to get our “legacy and childcare” needs met,
perhaps we can help out with the children at our churches to have contact with and teach children,
perhaps we could give another parent a day off and care for their babies,
perhaps we could live our purposes to be of service to the world,
which can be as fulfilling as having children,
perhaps we could adopt ALL of the children of the world and live our lives in a way that would care for and protect them,
perhaps we could face our inner prosperity issues, instead of having children and hoping one of them “makes it big”,

perhaps we can teach in the school system that most of the problems on the earth are the result of overpopulation, and
give the amazing, conscious young people a chance to chose to do something that will benefit the planet, have less children, focus more on life purpose, servicing the world, and healing some of the ills we already have,
perhaps that would reduce some of the people having mid-life crises (because they spent so much time focusing on making money, and caring for children that they didn’t do their other purposes),
perhaps we would cut down on the amount of children being born ill because our planet is so toxic right now,
perhaps we could focus on cleaning up the planet, and our family history and genetics, before having children, so that we don’t give all the unhealed stuff from the past to the next generation,

perhaps we, humanity, could all focus on being happy with what we already have, maximizing that to it’s potential, and going within for what we need instead of always “expanding”, and multiplying,
perhaps we could have life experience before having any children, so that we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past,
perhaps if we understood life and realizing our own potential, before having or thinking of having children, then child-rearing would be easier,
perhaps purifying our own emotional and physical bodies and healing our life issues before having children would produce healthier, happier children (transgenerational epigenetic influence),

perhaps we could change the world, and make it better,
perhaps we already have.

Who indicted oatmeal?

With all of this momentum to support the paleo diet, I would like to remind everyone the “180 degrees away from insanity, is still insanity”. We need to eat balanced diets. Yes for O blood type and those who cannot pull off the vegetarian diets, protein is not only important, it is a priority. But we must not throw the baby out with the bath water. Protein is a building block for almost everything going on in the body including the building of DNA.

Yes, as far as protein goes, we should not eat more than our palm size of meat at any time (as thick as a deck of cards). It is hard for the body to digest and causes the body to be acidic. (not to mention putting the body at risk for heart problems). It should be grass fed/ “finished” beef or animals and pasture raised chicken…Organic only (otherwise you are at risk for gmos and all of the toxicity that goes with that). (Finished means that the animals were fed grass all way up to their transition day. IE they were not fed grains the last month to fatten them up)

We should be eating 7-9 veggies (and about 2 fruits) a day. This should be our primary focus because this is our pharmacy of good health. We need to eat the rainbow of colors every day to protect us from environmental toxicity. Veggies support us in being alkaline, which protects us from disease. They also give us good fiber to keep us regular.

We also need healthy fats, like omega 3s and some (but less) omega 6, like coconut oil. Nurses say we should have a 2:1 ratio of omega 3s to 6s. Two omega 3s for every 6. These can come from avocados, nuts (although some nuts are higher in 6s), and high quality extra virgin olive oil (virgin can be used for cooking at low temperatures). Walnuts are a good choice for nuts (and are good for the brain) and brazil nuts are considered the queen of nuts – although for many it is an acquired taste.

Now… Let’s talk about oatmeal. There is no evidence to support or validate that oatmeal is not good for the body…Quite the contrary, there are volumes of studies that demonstrate that oatmeal is good for our body. The American diet is way to focussed on grains, so I would say, “yes, we need to cut back on grains”.

Leading edge doctors who have studied nutrition recommend that we do not eat more than a cup, or half a cup a day of grains per day. They recommend that we avoid wheat because it is so hybridized that most peoples’ bodies do not even recognize it, and there is also a concern that GMO/GE wheat can taint the organic wheat. Some gluten grains are bad for people with sensitivity to them, however I feel that a bigger issue is that some people already have so much inflammation in their gut that gluten just exaserbates the problem. (There can be other issues also, like mercury / or other heavy metal toxicity in the gut, which can also contribute to this gut inflammation…)

Each individual has certain tolerances and sensitivities to certain foods, including grains. For one a pecan might be a godsend, of another it might be a poison. The same is true for grains. I am O blood type (“the natural meat eater”) and I am highly allergic to wheat and spelt, but my body loves oatmeal and buckwheat (among others).

So my recommendation is, if your body reacts to a specific grain, don’t eat it. An allergic reaction can follow all the way up to 10 days after you eat a food. It can include mood swings and emotions, anger (from the liver detoxing) or the myriad of physical issues including acnes or rashes. Some doctors recommend that you eliminate a food for 6 months, then bring it back and eat a lot of it for a period of time and see if your body reacts. Another option is to get a blood test to find out food allergies and sensitivities. This can cost $300-800.

So back to oatmeal and low risk (non gmo) grains. Grains can have a mineral in them called Lithium. Lithium is well known in the medical industry as a medication used to stabilize mood swings (for bipolar). This is just one of many nutrients in oatmeal and other grains that is beneficial for the body. Brown rice and black beans are also a great nutritional combo because they equate to a full protein, high fiber and they are less taxing to the body’s digestive system than meat. 

Grains can also support the creation of serotonin (our happy drugs in our body), if they are appropriate for your body. 

There is nothing wrong with being a healthy OMNIVORE. And eating the full spectrum of food available, as long as you are getting the right amount of veggies and protein and you are not overdoing it with any particular food. The concept of eating well balanced meal, has never gone away. With registered dieticians, the “food pyramid” has been gone for a long time. Because almost the entire news media is owned by a few people, good accurate information about health rarely reaches the news and the american public. Don’t be afraid to eat oatmeal or other grains that work for your body as long as you are only eating about a half cup per meal. I will eat a beef sausage patty, which I make, collard greens (or any colorful veggies) and 1/2 cup of oatmeal for breakfast. Oftentimes I will the same thing for lunch that I make for breakfast so that I save time on food prep. Or I will eat the same thing for breakfast that I ate for dinner so that I don’t have to cook again.

And remember food allergies can be created by eating the same thing every day or limiting your food options to your favorite 25 foods. Mix it up, eat seasonal veggies, and eat the right foods in the right proportions for your body. Don’t overdo ANY foods or your will wind up with different health issues.

And, as a sidenote. Although we all love bacon, the processing of it can lead to  any end product that is less than ideal for our health (and extremely toxic that can contribute to infertility and impotence). Focus on healthy, less processed cuts of beef and pork and get your fats from healthy options. If you are craving fats eat olive oil and coconut oils.
