A cancer experience has taken hold of consciousness for a bit and so I am going to roll with it and stay in the moment with my thoughts. I do believe that this is not so much a divergence from previous topics, but a different route to the care and loving of the children in our lives.
Honestly, I have known how to care for myself nutritionally for a long time. The biggest lie I told myself over and over was that if it was so very important, then we wouldn’t be bombarded everywhere with the opposite of what is necessary for a healthy life. It appears to me that every food item advertised promotes a nutritional aspect so that we do not notice that which is harmful. Remember the old saying to describe how delicious something was, “Put it on a flip flop and the flip flop would taste delicious.” Advertise a nutritional benefit and it will cover up all the harmful ingredients underneath. I know I knew the advertising is a cover up, and yet I kept telling myself they couldn’t do it if it wasn’t true. Truth in advertising, right? So often what is said isn’t as important as what isn’t said.
Cooking and food has its own channels on TV. Some encourage over eating, abundant amounts of sugar, and high calorie food with customers who explain the goodness by admitting they eat there 3-4 times a week, indirectly telling viewers that day after day of high calorie foods is fine. I remember a show a few years back with a family that used healthy ingredients, emphasized plant based food, and taking off unnecessary weight. I wonder where that show went?
I can no longer believe that anyone has my best interest at heart more than me. Neither should you, but like me you have to come to that conclusion on your own. We believe in democracy and a government that looks out for our well being, when in truth, capitalism is what runs our country, and what makes money is promoted. That is not a criticism but a reality that lead me to realize that I have to think for myself and consider the source. Does what they are advertising even sound feasible or am I buying (and eating) a crazy bill of goods? “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” (Not mine, but a good one!)
American pride has made some feel superior and superiority in my experience leads to downfall. Now that I am in my situation information I read about others countries comes back to me. I wish I had read it completely, and processed it fully. Other countries have outlawed fluoride in water, toothpaste and anything else that goes in the mouth. GMOs have been banished as well. So what are they doing with those products? My guess is exporting them to the US where they are all legal. No proof, just a guess. Our country did that with medicines we didn’t want for years and may still be doing it , sending things to what we called 3rd world countries. Are we now the 3rd world country?
I will wind my way back around to the children we love, because this discussion has to get there and quickly. The ones I love are not choosing to eat green or plant based of any color, have sugar every day in some manner, drink too little water, and would choose a prepackaged food over real if given that opportunity. Acidic choices create a growing field for disease. Yes, I will get to that topic soon.
In addition, I am right now typing on my wireless laptop, which is in my lap, (even though a lap stand is right upstairs). It is able to communicate with the internet, situated in the next room, or the printer upstairs, and that is such an incredible convenience, but is it good for me? I rarely carry my cell phone on my person as do others, but it is in a pocket, my purse or a table near me, most of the time. It too is giving off EMF energy all the time. Another topic for another time, but food for thought.
While considering my inspiration for the next blog, I will walk every day, get out in the sunshine for a while every day, breathe in fresh air, and while doing so, will ask myself if the choices I made today are for my highest good. Staying open to all possibilities and questioning old belief patterns, allows our own higher self to give us the answers.
