Jeff  Sekerak, the SUPERFIT VEGAN

WPD activist and planetary way shower
How to 'rekindle fires,' of true health? Eat natural fare. Treat All as ye would be treated. Run barefoot through fields of grass. And, drop 'Twinkie,' slowly 'back away...'

As John Hopkins anthropologist, Dr. A. Walker discovered, circa 1979, via human teeth striation research, Man developed as an 'exclusive' fruit-eater for thousands of years. See his May 1979, 'bombshell' of a NY Times piece, in which he concludes, '...our early human ancestors were not predominantly meat eaters or even eaters of seeds, shoots, leaves or grasses. Nor were they omnivorous. Instead, they appear to have subsisted chiefly on a diet of fruit...'

A simple, cleansing, diet, suited to both his internal physiology - i.e. length of digestive tract designed for plant-foods, affinity for alkaline foods, need for fiber of plant-fare, etc - and his obvious, 'external,' physical traits. Like, his bipedal nature. Lack of snout. No 'loads' of sharp teeth; hands, made for grabbing, holding, the fruit of tree - not claws, for tearing of flesh...

Such a diet served him well, health-wise, for generations. He lived, when juxtaposed against today's, more 'advanced version' of self, in relative harmony with his surroundings; at comparative peace, with his own nature. This - a MASSIVE chasm between his current level of health, and that of his more 'primitive' ancestors - has been well-noted by such researchers as J. Robbins ('Health at 100: The Scientifically Proven Secrets of The World's Healthiest And Longest-Lived People), Australian Dr. Abramowski, Prof. A. Ehret, Dr. Day, M.D...just to name a few.

Where, oh where, I ask, did he lose that peace, that sense of 'inner and outer' harmony; that, more 'pristine' way of being!?

Was it after some great cataclysm or flood, described by so many ancient cultures, swept the globe? When a fruitful, plentiful earth, became arid, sparse; and good produce, increasingly difficult to find? When he first placed fire to flesh, and found its taste and texture, so tempting; then, subsequently, addicting? This, seems one possibility.

Another? Invention of...'gulp'... 'Twinkie.' Among other of his modern-day, processed, 'civilized,' 'treats.' Of which there are many. Yet, the 'Twinkie,' I'd say, makes an apt metaphor for what Man today considers, 'food.' Where once, with a heightened level of sense and intuition garnered from clean living, and clean bloodstream, he'd likely have considered it - the 'Twinkie,' that is - 'something else.'

Remember: There was a day, not so very long ago, when one might walk into a local grocery store to find 90% of its shelves, stocked with fresh produce and other unprocessed fare; with only 10% of food processed, 'boxed.' Now? Those numbers, it seems in most cases, are 'reversed.' A crime against nature, I'd say! And a self-inflicted wound, against Man himself; who will soon become a creature, with 1 of 2 of his members suffering some form of cancer in lifetime. Where was this ailment earlier in his past? When he subsisted on a more hearty, natural fare? Nearly unknown, it was!

Do they still, dare I ask, make those things - 'Twinkies?' Last I checked, that 'cream' inside 'em was loaded with both sugar, numerous other destructive - or at least highly questionable - toxins, additives, processed poisons, and, 'beef fat.' As Kurtz stated, 'The horror...the horror.'

And the solution to all this? How can Man 'rekindle the fires' of true health, that once burned so brightly, in each member of his collective being? I've 'got it!' Live more, as did his more 'primitive' ancestors!

Subsist on fruit of tree. Enjoy silence, not noise, distraction. Think on other sentient beings as friends, not 'fare.' Treat All as ye would be treated! Bathe in sunlight, daily. Exercise each day as did our predecessors. Take stairs, climb hills, walk, run, everywhere. 'Shop ye not,' in junk-food aisle. Run barefoot through fields of grass! Early to bed; early to rise! And yes, and lest I forget...

Drop 'twinkie.' And slowly 'back away.'

Key to transforming 'ugly,' into beautiful? Follow example. Of Mr. or Ms. Butterfly...

A caterpillar, after a series of molts, or, 'sheddings,' of its skin, stops eating. It hangs itself, upside down, from a branch or leaf. It spins a cocoon. It then, effectively, in its own way, dies; using its digestive juices to dissolve its tissues, into a thick, liquid, mass. From outside, 'looking in,' one might think this is 'the end' of the creature, permanently. Yet something survives this 'ugly' process; which, as it turns out, is merely a 'stop off,' on path, way, to a final, ultimate beauty. What survives? Groups of innately intelligent cells; or, what scientists term, 'imaginal discs.' These cell groupings then form each, individual body-part of a newborn, beautiful butterfly. Legs. Eyes. Antennae. Wings. More...

In its 'ugly' state - that of a 'molten mess' - does the caterpillar 'give up?' Does he (or she) say to himself, 'I'll never amount to anything.' 'I'll ALWAYS look like this.' 'I'm too slow and fat.' 'I'll NEVER learn to fly!' Or, 'It doesn't matter what I do; I was just born, plain, unattractive.'

Far from it!

Rather, he (or she) moves forward, one small step, one tiny move, at a time; seemingly, understanding, at a deep, natural, intuitive level, that his present, 'abominable' stage, is merely a temporary one. And that should he continue with good, consistent work - if he is not preyed upon - his next 'incarnation,' shall be one of beauty, lightness, freedom.

Should we, the creature Man, follow suit? Shall we look upon each present, 'ugly' stage, in whatever the endeavor - physical, intellectual, or spiritual - as one of insurmountable tragedy? Or, shall we take minute, deliberate steps, toward some worthy end? Making most of our innate abilities; with understanding that All shall not necessarily, be easy? Yes. Some preying creature, foul wind, or other unfortunate occurrence may rupture a 'cocoon,' true. Yet should we work to our ablest; improve, daily; should we tread lightly with worthy ends in mind; should we do all this, then something more, also may be true: One day, we may emerge from temporary 'cocoon' with one chance to fly in freedom, beauty.

And what more could we ask, of M. Nature?

We can 'give up.' And deem the transient, permanent; 'ugly,' our nature. Or, embrace another, perhaps, more appealing, notion. Shed skin. Do good work. In temporary 'cocoon.' Understanding end in mind. Knowing future may well be one of beauty, freedom, more. In short, follow good example...

Of Mr. or Ms. Butterfly.

The spiritual component? I say: 'It's HUGE!'

Diamond, in 'Fit For Life,' makes the following 'bet.' Paraphrased: 'If you place a rabbit and an apple in a youngster's crib; and the child eats the rabbit and plays with the apple - I'll buy you a new car.' That little story - a good one, I think - has always stuck with me. What is he 'onto' here? Just this, I'd say: Humans, when not addicted, distracted, corrupted, are not INNATELY, natural predators, or killers.

Yes, of course we lack the physiological characteristics to make 'compelling hunters.' We're slow, bipedal. No sharp teeth. No claws. No true ability to effectively deal with the acidic nature of flesh 'foods.' Yet there's another component here. A spiritual one, I'd contend.

Do we, when not brainwashed by 'good advertising,' really enjoy hunting, killing, preparing, slaughtering, other creatures. No; not in my experience. This is a learned behavior. From adults, who've become deeply engaged with the process. Yet, if we had to kill all our own flesh foods? How many of us would then, fully embrace the notion of a plant-based diet, as I, and so many others, successfully, have? Tons, I'm betting!

Doubt it? Take a look at this good film ('Earthlings'), and then 'tell me I'm wrong' on this. Unless you've been completely indoctrinated, and so deeply ingrained, with the idea that flesh 'fare' is our natural source of sustenance, I'm thinking, you'll find this film...'educational.'

Horrific, yes. Yet how often has experiencing the 'uncomfortable,' proved an impetus for positive change in Man? Often, I'd say. In fact, more often than not, he - Man - waits until a situation gets sooooooo painful, he can't stand it anymore, then - and ONLY then - does he consider altering behavior, in a more productive manner. And this change in behavior? From flesh-eating, to plant-based living? Especially when considering BOTH the positive spiritual aspects, as well as, health benefits, which I've not touched upon here, yet which are many, to state it mildly? These, combined? 'Hard to beat,' I'd say.

We're, I believe, as Diamond contends, born with empathy; with a deep connection to all living things. 'Tis only 'trained' out of us, by those who've embrace a way, NOT conducive to bringing to fore, Man's greatest attributes; i.e. empathy for All. Let not, this 'training, 'happen' to you. Let not false dogma dictate behavior. There's still time. To embrace empathy, as you, I, we did, as un-corrupted, untainted, 'clean-souled,' youngsters.

Ah yes: And for many, the idea of switching to plant fare, for own, 'selfish,' health reasons, alone, may NOT prove enough to inspire lasting, meaningful change. Yet add in empathy, connection to All, and a new way of being, at deepest level. And then? With these 'soul-defining' reasons, on top of those, of good personal health? Why, they can make all the difference 'in the world' to a Man or woman. Thus...

Spiritual component? Considering All?

I say, 'It's HUGE!'

See (for further 'soul-ular' development):

Humans eat meat! It's been that way forever!' claims, 'genius.' My response:

'Has been that way forever?' Actually wrong. 'Dead wrong.' Humans have been consuming meat for a TINY sliver of our time, here on earth. See, the work of Dr. Alan Walker, anthropologist, Johns Hopkins University. Walker, by studying the teeth markings - or, 'striations' - on humanoid fossils, has proven, UNQUESTIONABLY, that our early ancestors, as he chose to term it, 'were not predominantly meat eaters, or even eaters of seeds, shoots, leaves, or grasses. NOR WERE THEY OMNIVOROUS. Instead, they appear to have subsisted chiefly on a diet of fruit...'

He reveals all, in his May 15, 1979, NY Times piece, on the subject. He continues: 'NO EXCEPTIONS HAVE BEEN FOUND. Every tooth of the hominids of the 12 million year period leading up to Homo Erectus appeared to be that of a fruit eater.' And this would stand to reason. As there are over 30 DISTINCT KEY DIFFERENCES separating the physiology of a natural carnivore, and a natural plant-eater.

Man, and all other anthropoid primates on earth, are classified, via comparative physiology, as frugivores. Why? We thrive on an alkaline diet. Natural carnivores? On an acidic one. We have long winding digestive tracts, made to work with plant foods only. Carnivores. They've got short, smooth digestive systems, with an ability to neutralize acid content of dead flesh. In our systems? That same flesh rots, and contributes directly to constipation, and subsequently, disease. Our teeth and lack of snout are designed for grinding plant foods - NOT, for, as are a carnivores', with snout, sharp teeth, for the tearing of flesh.

I could go on and on. The point being, just this: We humans are clearly NOT designed as flesh-eaters. Ah yes: and do we need meat 'for protein?' Unlikely. Otherwise we'd probably see a lot more 'skinny, protein-deficient' GREAT APES (who get their protein from fruit, edible leaves, and other plant-foods), wandering the earth's jungles.
Ain't 'happenin.'

And eating flesh on fellow sentient beings? It's 'been that way forever?' Not, given all available intelligence, I'd say. And not, by the way, a 'genius' contention, 'by any stretch.' Perhaps, quite the opposite. Forget I used that term in above headline, is what I'm getting at here...

Rex, the 'Zen-Master' cat. From whom I could learn a thing or two...

There's a detached, silent, intellect about the cat, is there not? E. Tolle, author, of The Power Of Now, seems to think so; he refers to cat, here, as 'Zen Master.' Which may sound a bit, 'far-fetched.' Yet, I can't rule the notion out, based upon my own experiences with this, good, oft-silent, 'mystery-rich' creature.

Tolle: 'I have lived with several Zen Masters; all of them, cats.'

I had a good, orange-and-white one, when I lived in Seattle, Washington, year ago. He'd hide bits of food, storing them for later, around the condominium in which I lived; exhibiting virtues of foresight, patience. He stretched like a good, experienced, 'Yogi,' several times per day; good exercise, here, and flexibility. He'd mastered, it seemed to me, the art of, as Tolle might term it, 'present-moment awareness.' He exhibited not many 'high's' - not many 'low's.' Simply a cool, detached, efficiency of being, to my best way of describing him, it. A good, productive way of living, of being, overall.

Perhaps we humans, who seem, emotionally-speaking, to 'blow around like a leaf in the wind,' often, might learn a thing or two, from this precious, sentient being. Where we might 'fly off handle,' with anger, in a given situation, we might, rather, try this: Before reacting so, simply imagine how the cat might handle the same issue. Likely with a more 'cool,' calm, efficiency; assessing situation, making decision, following with appropriate action.

Ah yes, and the 'high' situations? Where we humans might be temporarily 'elated' - oft, perhaps, to a fault? The cat might enjoy such a 'high' time as well - yet in a more relaxed, tempered manner. Which well might enhance the experience, offering, 'on top of' joy, more benefits. Like, reflection, learning from experience; a more shared, rather than fully self-centered happiness, perhaps more, if we truly think on it.

All this is likely something I should be working a bit more on, daily - this cat-mastered, mode of being, that is. I believe I'll start right now. With a good post-workout, meditation session. Mirroring, to best of my ability, the silent, 'Zen-like,' quality of my good, orange-white cat, from Washington.

His name? Rex. A true, 'Zen-Master.' Who exhibited many a timeless virtue; like value of detachment; calm, 'cool,' efficiency; patience; true friendship, no matter the situation. And more. Rex? Wherever you are, my friend? I could learn a thing or two from you. Without question.

T/Y for your time. :)

Doing right thing, for All, being one. 'Karma,' another! ---

Striking B/W, of 'weapon-wielding' pig. Posted by Earth Body Health Inst. Had he - this creature - watched scores of own friends, family, 'drained' of vital fluids until death, in this 'Let The Right One In' style... If this were the case, should Man be surprised if one day 'Karma' does not account for self, 'rear head' - with creatures like this one refusing to 'sit on sidelines' for future horrors versus own kind? Likely not. Hard to blame him really.

Ah yes: If he did NOT 'come back for vengeance,' as shown here, 'Karma' seems always - does it not? - to get its way, ultimately. In case of Man, consuming flesh of sentient being, rather than healthy plant-food - which he is physiologically designed to thrive upon, which gives Him all he needs for a lifetime of vibrant health - 'Karma' makes self known, regardless of whether or not 'weapon-wielding' pig scenario proves true. How so? Via heart conditions, cancer, constipation, and other, highly-preventable, degenerative ailments.

Best, I'd contend, to go with M. Nature's natural, life-giving, water-rich, plant-fare, for sustenance. For 'good variety,' of reasons.
Doing right thing, for All, being one...

'Karma,' another.

From 'crushed' to liberated. Once and for all...

French researcher Gilles-Eric Seralini and his colleagues, at The University of Caen, determined, rats fed Monsanto's genetically-altered corn (NK603) suffered severe tumors; plus, liver and kidney damage. Also, claims Seralini, rats fed this GMO corn die at more than double the rate of those in control groups. His studies were published in the 'Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology,' and presented at a news conference in London, last September, reported Reuters. See:
http://rt.com/news/monsanto-rats-tumor-france-531/. The Caen University findings mirror that done over a decade ago, by French scientist Arpaud Pusztai, Rowett Research, who found, rats fed GMO potatoes experienced poor brain development, massive organ damage, and a thickening of the small intestine.

Sad, yet true. As most reasonable estimates have the percentage of U.S. crops, like corn and potatoes, at somewhere between 75 and 90%.

Incidentally: Rowett Research received financing from Monsanto, itself. And when Monsanto officials discovered Pusztai's findings, on GMO crops and organ damage in rats? The French researcher was quickly, fired. More circumstantial evidence that major U.S food manufacturers - i.e. the Monsantos of the world - care a bit less about your and your family's overall health, than they do about 'bottom line,' profits.

What to do about this?

Spread the word, of course, first of all. Re-post information like this, wherever appropriate. Also, pick up a copy of J. Smith's excellent, SEEDS OF DECEPTION. In which the author clearly documents that a wide range of animals, when given a choice, intuitively refuse GMO fare, in favor of naturally-grown. And finally, buy and consume organic, whenever possible.

Yes, it may be a bit more expensive than going the 'traditionally-grown' route. However, you'll have to eat far less, as organic crops contain, in my opinion, a greater nutrient content 'per bite.' Another good solution? Grow your own produce if you can. Start with, at a minimum, one of those hanging tomato growers. Or, even just a few pots on your porch or balcony, of squash, tomatoes, and edible greens.

All this is a bit of work, yes. Yet the benefits? Helping put criminal organizations like Monsanto, 'on the run.' That's one. Becoming more self-sufficient? That's two. Enjoying great produce, as Mother Nature intended? Another 'fringe benefit.' And, of course, NOT suffering organ damage, like liver and kidney, or malignant life-threatening tumors? Another! And how about being part of a true, global shift in human consciousness? From a 'sickness mentality,' to one of vibrant health. From a state of being 'in the dark,' with regard to what goes into our 'collective body,' to state of true, lasting, enlightenment. And from being crushed by, as some might term it, 'corporatacracy,' to being liberated...

Once and for all.

(***For the empathetic, committed, vegan athlete***) Picture a wall, in front of you. Then 'run right through it...'

It is that precise moment, during which you push yourself past your present capabilities - 'workout-wise' - that you make your greatest gains, in both strength, and endurance. For, this type of action acts as an impetus, or, signal to your body, to increase its ability to handle greater 'work loads.'

So, yes, it is ALWAYS important to remain active, well-conditioned; to engage in activity, also, simply for the sheer joy of it. And it is NOT critical that each and every day, you push yourself past, or, beyond the level, you may have reached the previous day, with regard to your workout routine. Yet 3 to 4 times per week? Pushing yourself until you feel you 'cannot do it anymore?' Via, for example, sprinting on concrete in 'minimalist shoes,' or doing calisthenics until 'you drop?' Two of my 'personal favorites,' btw. Is this a good idea? ...


As this - this type of 'extreme' exercise session - is the EXACT type wherein your pituitary gland, signaled by a build-up of lactic acid, releases HGH, the clearly-proven, 'fountain of youth.' Linked to lean muscle gain, fast fat-loss, greater sexual performance, thicker skin, and more.

This also, is the type of workout that shall cause your lungs to feel as if they may well, 'burst.' Fear not, they won't. Yet they WILL, absolutely, after such a workout of, say, hill sprints, or stair-climbing - with a few calisthenic sets thrown in 'for good measure' - expand in their capacity to handle much greater stress placed upon them in the future; a 'reactionary' response, taken by your body. And a productive one, indeed.

This is also the type of session, should you choose to mix in push-ups, squats, abdominal crunches, and the like, that'll build lean muscle mass that shall serve you well, for a lifetime. Serve you well, AND, of course, burn fat 'like mad,' as you build that muscle. And, of course, another 'fringe benefit,' attract the eye, likely, of that EXACT type of person with whom you may desire to...'engage,' in one way. Or 'other.'

Ah yes; lest I forget. This, as well, is the type of session, that'll give you one he#@ of a lot more mental toughness than most. Certainly more than the average sedentary, Wal-Mart shopping, prescription pill-popping, TV-watching, alcohol-guzzling, 'specimen,' lazing about in front of the TV each night, feeling 'stressed-out' each day, and rising, mornings, later than he or she should. While you 'sleep like the dead,' due to your demanding fitness routine, feel an inner calm and confidence not to be bought at any price, and rise each day with the sun, ready to 'take on the world.'

Good stuff. And a great way to live this, the latter, of these two 'options.'

Trust me. I'm objective. And I've done this long enough - this type of demanding fitness arsenal, or, 'mode of attack,' that is - that I know from experience, this: Exercise normally, to some extent, to keep well-conditioned, daily. Fast-walk, bike, run, take stairs, etc. Even engage in running and calisthenics, as I do, daily. Yet forget not, the following: Your greatest gains are to be had, when you push yourself beyond that limit, of which you believe you are capable.

Sprinting? Go until you can, 'go no more.' And at that precise moment when you feel you should, 'for safety reasons,' perhaps, stop? Picture a wall in front of you...

Then run right through it.

Do this, at three to four times per week, minimum, during your workout routines. Push-ups, and other calisthenics. Yes, you can practice these daily, of course. Yet several times per week, after your final set of push-ups, be sure to drop to your knees, and continue doing them 'until you drop.' Lactic acid, created; hence, HGH, released, as well. Along with, again, one he#@ of a good supply of physical, mental - even spiritual - toughness.

For each type of exercise of which you can think - there is a method of pushing yourself beyond your present capacity. Sprinting? Sprint harder, longer than you believe possible. Go, up a hill or set of stairs, to end your workout. Push-ups? Drop to knees, continue, as stated above. Pull-ups? When finished with final repetition, hang from bar as long as possible, arms slightly bent.
You get the idea, the notion. Pay it heed; it works. And it works 'wonders' for everyone with the internal fortitude to engage it, embrace it, where others, shall not.

Just picture this, when you reach the 'precise moment,' in which you can quit, or, push further than you thought possible, and thus, grow. For it is your decision, at that moment, in which you engage (or not), to the best of your ability, that'll separate you from, as Thoreau might say, the 'mass of Man.' Picture him, or her - of the 'masses,' that is - on the couch; old, over-weight, beaten. Picture you, in your 'mind's eye,' on a beach, in some secluded paradise, young, no matter your years; lean, well-muscled, vibrant, victorious. Your past, if it was riddled with errors, mistakes, physical issues? It never happened. Period. Think that! Know it, to be true, should you take appropriate action to dispell the notion, once and for all time. For, I can tell you from experience, it IS true.

Now. That point at which you think you SHOULD quit? And, that point at which the 'mass of Man,' surely, shall? Yet that point, as well, during which masters are created; sculpted, as from stone, to a thing of beauty, made flesh? Do this...

Picture a wall, in front of you. Then, 'run right through it.'

Our 'best bet,' going forward? Here's an idea: Let's be 'revolutionary.' And, welcome the enlightened one back into our midst. Not Barabbas.

When I look, objectively, at the sheer AMOUNTS of food (never mind the quality, 'gasp') that the overwhelming 'bulk' of western, 'civilized' Man consumes, I'm always a bit, shall I say, 'shocked.' And disturbed. Yet, not so much, by those amounts, in and of themselves. I've become accustomed to seeing that.

Heck, I'm here in the Philippines now, and I watch the indigenous folk - as well as the westerners - gorge themselves on McDonald's, 'Jolly-Bee' (another fast-food 'empire'), donuts, deep-fried chips, jerky, 'pork rhinds,' and more - in short, everything EXCEPT raw, organic fruits or vegetables, our natural, healthy fare - each time I 'peruse' the local Mall. It's a sight to see, I can tell you. Yet, unfortunately, at this point in Man's 'advancement,' 'tis to be expected.

What really 'gets to me,' most, however? And piques, within me, a sense of awe, wonder; or just plain, 'horror?' ...

It's how in the he@#, after doing this to himself, for so long, he, Man, is still functioning at all. If we can call it, 'functioning,' that is. As, most reasonable estimates have 1 in 2 of our species, by year 2015, getting cancer in some form. As, 75 to 90% of U.S. crops are now genetically-altered; those same crops being the ones that cause terrifying tumors, organ damage, and worse, in the sentient beings that consume them. Yep, btw, they've got enough sense, intuitively - our animal friends, that is - when given the choice, to avoid the man-altered, and consume the naturally-grown. Yet Man? His 'masses?' Uh...not. And as result, he passes on, quite possibly, permanent genetic damage, from one generation, to the next.

To me, personally, all this is 'far from functional.' In fact, I'd call it 'downright,' unacceptable.

Yet leave it to Man, ever with an excuse, to plod onward, as if 'all were normal.' As if, there were NOT serious, imminent, 'looming,' consequences, to state it mildly; to the ongoing, prolific, near-delusional lack of respect he exhibits toward himself, his neighbors, other sentient beings, and, of course, toward his home, the land upon which he treads.

Leave it to him to reach for the animal - which might be his friend - for his sustenance, rather than the plant. For the wine, rather than the fruit, or the juice of it. For the TV, rather than the book. For the altered, rather than the natural. For that which is, clearly, at this point, corrupt - versus all that, which is not.

Will 'things always be this way?' Is this - a 'downward spiral,' ending in a downfall of some sort - to be an imminent, unavoidable, 'destiny,' for our kind?

Well, I'll say this: I'm not a 'conventionally-religious' individual. I consider myself a proponent, in fact, of a one-sentence religion: Treat All As You Would Be Treated. Yet, when I review the Biblical story of Jesus, Barabbas, I say: I look upon it as strangely prophetic; metaphorical. Will the 'masses,' allow an enlightened, peaceful being, his freedom? Or will they choose, to bring into their midst, the liar, the thief, the murderer?

The latter, of course, being your answer. As ever. Fable or reality - I'll leave that, to decide, for you. Yet the tale may be seen as a metaphorical warning - that, given a choice, between enlightenment and distraction, between righteousness and corruption; more, between good, evil - the mass of Man, shall always choose...


Let us hope not, in our own 'case.' And, do our best; leading our next generation, by example. By consuming plants, not beings; as all we need for a lifetime of health, joy, is to be found in the fruit of the tree. By choosing an active life, versus a sedentary one. By choosing the simple, rather than the complex; the natural, not the Man-altered, and the fruit, rather than, as we all often do, the wine. And the peaceful path, rather than the violent. And, equality, freedom, over subjugation. A more natural, less - shall we say - 'corrupted,' path. As, should we do so...

We can hope, then, that it may NOT 'be too late.' And act, accordingly. Not 'too late,' from what? To save ourselves. From that collection of self-created, self-instituted habits that have, potentially, earmarked' us for downfall; physically, intellectually, even spiritually.

Our 'best bet,' going forward? Here's an idea: Let's be 'revolutionary.' And, welcome the enlightened one back to our midst.

Not Barabbas.

A generation to be reckoned with, I tell you. And a 'good omen,' for more, to come...

J. Converse, MPH, RD, LD claims, 'for first time in history, children are less healthy than generation before them.' Not just a little bit worse either, she contends. Yet, rather, 'precipitously' so, emotionally, physically, developmentally.

Yep. And with the added vaccines, prescription drugs, violent indoctrination of souls, via film, video games, TV - i.e. plenty of 'zombie-ism,' 'vampirism,' 'Rihanna-ism,' and worse - I'd just add to Converse' contentions, this: They're 'less healthy,' spiritually, as well. Not in every case, of course. Yet, collectively.

What to do about this?

Teach independence. Teach a healthy skepticism of ALL authority. Teach fundamentals of reading, math, science; stick to basics, in other words - NOT government, politically-motivated, propaganda. Which has little, I'd say - or nothing, perhaps more accurately - to do with a young person's successful development. Home-school, if necessary.

Keep off of ALL prescription drugs - children, that is. Have 'em follow you. By eating plants, rather than beings. Another great practice! Act as you'd have them act. Practice honesty, forthrightness, and that irreplaceable 'one sentence religion' - which I HIGHLY recommend - 'Treat All Beings As You Would Be Treated.' Stay active physically. Teach children to do much same.

What'll all this 'work' - which should be 100% natural, 'common' sense - yield. A generation to be reckoned with, I tell you.

And a good 'omen' for more to come...

It's alright. To 'hit beach.' Watch demands dissipate, joy grow. And to be happy, for no reason at all (***Treat All as you would be treated, for best results***)...

Ah...there's nothing quite like a good run on the beach. Sunny, blue skies. Water, a deep, shining, breath-taking, crystal-blue. Sand. Old, sun-beaten, wooden walkways, stretching down to water's edge. Birds, and other wildlife, reminding the runner, how vibrantly healthy, care-free, joyous, ALL life on earth, might be.

Running until breathless. Over rock, sand, wood, concrete. Stopping for occasional sets of calisthenics; push-ups, squats, more. Enjoying surroundings, all. While demands of modern, 'civilized' life - far too many of them to my way of thinking - dissipate, with each stride of foot, each, full-body, 'rep.'

Reminding self that days as this, are NOT to be 'taken for granted.' That, much of the world, will never know the moment's peace, as, perhaps, you've 'got hold of,' this instant. That it's a good, simple thing, to be active, not sedentary. That, it's good to follow a run, a workout, with a deeply refreshing, invigorating, mix of pure water and fruit of tree.

That it's a good, rewarding thing, to help fellow Man, animal, where possible. That this takes a bit of work, occasionally; an investment of a portion of one's soul, to do so. And represents a truly inspiring reason, to many, for taking action. Helping another, being that reason. Yet that if you do this - to the best of your ability, wherever possible - it's alright, once in a while, to take a moment, in silent reward. In simple joy, gratitude for being. Alone.

To 'hit beach,' mountain, or trail. To blend in body, through vigorous movement, with beauty surrounding you, wherever you may be, until soul seems to blend with it, as well. To focus upon thy own thankfulness, gratitude, for being. To allow issues, demands, distractions, of whatever the type, to dissipate, via energy expended. Via sweat, into clean, crisp air. To 'own' the moment, in your own way. By pushing oneself to limits, sewing seed of vibrant fitness. Then reaping harvest of said 'seed.'

It's alright, on occasion. Truly...

To 'hit beach.' Allow demands to dissipate; joy, to grow. Demand - anyway I say! - upon modern, 'civilized,' 'advanced' Man, has become too great! To feel simple pleasure of sun on skin; wind, in hair; sand under foot. To take joy in health you have; a health, in large part, you have built. To - should you treat All as you would be treated - have hope for a better future, for All. To... What else? 'Give me a moment.' Ah yes. Got it...

To be happy, for no reason at all.
