Video Podcast #4: Fasting/Detox: Journal #2 – 3/20/2012

Since the beginning of the month of March, I’ve been working on an in-depth cleanse. This cleanse started with a detox diet for the first two weeks, consisting of loads of organic vegetables as soups and stir fries as well as nuts, fruit and dried fruit. This was followed by a week of juice fasting, consisting of fresh raw fruit and vegetable juice diluted 50% with water; this is the stage I am at now. A water-only fast will be beginning this weekend and should last for at least one week, perhaps longer if things work out well.

So far this week, I’ve primarily been drinking juices with some combination of the following (citrus is always taken separately as the guidelines of trophology suggest):

  • carrot
  • bok choy
  • celery
  • cabbage
  • italian parsley
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • kale
  • oranges
  • grapefruit

So-far, I’m feeling good, I have loads of energy and I don’t feel much in the way of withdrawal symptoms from coffee, dairy, bread, etc. In the past I had a hard time getting through the day without a few coffees, it was quite an addiction. Now I am able to get through the day without feeling the need for coffee. I’ll still have some caffiene in the form of a green tea, perhaps, but the overall dosage is much lower than before.

I’ve been able to go about my life with more sustainable energy than before and aside from missing out on the enjoyment of food, I am feeling better than ever. I think this opportunity I’m giving my body to really rest and repair, is really helping a great deal. So I’ll keep a good attitude, which has a huge influence on the results of this kind of endeavor, I’ll be mindful of the effects of whatever I am engaged in and I’ll push forth doing my best to maintain and improve my life as I go.

I went to a Yoga class followed by a Tai Chi class on Tuesday, which turned out to be an above average class in terms of difficulty. Despite having less energy to burn, I did well and I pushed myself in ways that I had not previously pushed myself. I was able to hold difficult poses like scale pose for 30 seconds on each side, which is a record for me and I was able to do poses like half bound lotus forward bend with less difficulty. Overall, I was stronger, more flexible, more disciplined and motivated than I had been in previous experiences.

One of the great things about these kinds of experiences, is they help you to apply the discipline that it takes to engage in fasting/detox, to other parts of your life. It really gets you thinking and introspecting, so you have the potential to really weed out toxic habits and motivational issues that you might have otherwise been complacent with, had you not done a fast/detox.

I did an hour long video podcast, which goes off on alot of tangents; but touches many areas that I felt inspired to discuss. I hope those of you who have the time will check it out and share your thoughts if you are so inclined.

ZERO An Investigation Into 9/11

There’s nothing wrong with questioning events and proposing alternate theories; yet you wouldn’t know this, from the way many who do this are treated. An intelligent, logical, critical-thinking person can see that, many things which happened on 9/11, were highly abnormal and inconsistent with the explanations we were given, by those in the government and media.

How is it that many supposedly educated, critical-thinking individuals, have been so well trained to protect government claims and government propaganda, instead of thinking for themselves and arriving at their own conclusions? Why do we allow these government propagandists, or people who have been duped by this propaganda, to keep us from having a substantial public inquiry?

It has now been nearly 10 years since 9/11 and while a substantial portion of the population now questions the official stories; it is still considered taboo, under most circumstances, to pose questions which indicate a non-belief in the official version of events.

Discussing these theories has lead to many firings and quite often ostracism from friends, co-workers and family; but these questions are perfectly logical questions. Why do people resort to such immature measures in response to simply questioning an event? Why not just answer the questions and come to the conclusions reached using logic?

Is there, perhaps, a fear of using logic to question these events? Might the conclusions reached possibly put people in a position of conflict with long-held views? Continue reading ZERO An Investigation Into 9/11

Huge Repository of Independent Documentary Videos

I’ve been a big documentary watcher for the past several years; but it has been a awhile since I compiled together most of the documentaries, which have made an impression on me over the years. That’s just what I did today!

I’ve embedded a semantically organized repository of documentaries and discussions, containing independent, non-conventional perspectives on a wide array of topics; generally focused on alternative historical perspectives.

The documentaries are organized semantically into Pearl Trees; to make them easy to maintain, navigate and organize. This repository will be maintained and added to on a regular basis, to ensure that there is always fresh, working content and the latest indie documentaries which become available online.
