One scare might be the gap between the haves and have nots would keep getting larger because of the tech revolution. Everyone should have a solid base education (through college if needed or wanted) in order to be able to determine one’s own destiny in this new age.

The Three Types of People (as told by inspirational speakers)
Some watch what’s happening.
Some make things happen.
Some wonder what’s happening.
Making things happen:
Imagine the ideal situations you long for (travel, romance, a special car, more friends, etc.) and then ask: How can I make these ideal situations happen?
The first thing is to know it’s going to take awhile. Knowing this makes it easier to be patient: a talent that goes hand-in-hand with happiness.
The best case scenario:
Since money is the grease making more things possible…
We need to earn enough money to be able to save some while doing something we’re good at, and the “something” should ideally allow time to go by mostly unnoticed while we do it.
We need to move rapidly and learn to notice when we begin to rush. We tend to rush when we don’t have a well-thought-out plan. Not rushing makes it more likely we’ll innovate our way to the above ideal situations by being more positive minded and honing our best abilities.
Be realistic only when we should be. Think big, dream big. This will prompt us to recognize unusual opportunities and notice again opportunities we may have overlooked.
We shouldn’t worry about this taking awhile if we’ve set things up so we are using our best talents. It’s hard work to plan and then put the plan into action, but what a payoff.
So, we work by planning and doing and taking care of our health, allowing us to take better care of ourselves and others.

Is learning how to accept what already is the case, the foundation of the house of happiness? Knowing what is so is constantly changing so it’s hard to keep up with.
Does love communicate naturally? Is health where you take part or loose it? Is knowledge a booby prize but too useful to suspend? Is the first and last truth an experience rather than an idea?
Is truth an idea as well as a physical thing?
What’s the greatest truth? The isness of existence? Or is it finding out what’s for supper? Is the greatest truth the current one?
If we were a healthier country, would this give us the frame of mind to expend the energy it would take to find and elect and appoint a better class of representatives and officials?
These folks may be hard to find and hard to convince. They can come from rich and poor so long as they are not desperate for more money or have hidden agendas and have the character not to accept favors from anyone. Their mission will be to help the country and everyone in it and including the folks controlling a lot of assets.
Do we have the guts to take the money out of politics?
We have the votes but don’t have the guts to get out and vote.
If eating healthier helps us to restore our guts, (what a segue) here’s how we can restore our country and ourselves…
We still have the ability to see our way back to judge anew what is healthy and what is not? Will we do it?
To be healthy one needs good nutrition and a good level of daily activity. It’s been established that moving around doing everyday tasks is better for us than a strong workout and then sitting for most of the day. Doing both are good yet only one is key.
Is this why stone age tactics and foods are so effective for present day humans? Stone age humans had to forage and hunt for their food. They ate roots; nuts, seeds; soft stems and berries; herbs; fruits; eggs; honey; plants like seaweed and kale; and all types of meat and fats. Fat is not an enemy; it’s one of the things which has the goods.
We were told by nutritionists that eating grains was natural which meant all cereal and all bread and pasta products were supposed to be good for us.
Even our government suggested eating grain was good for us. Well, grains can keep us alive and that’s about it! How can this be? One theory is wheat flower is good for business and no one is twisting anyone’s arm.
It turns out almost all grain products, when eaten, turn quickly to sugar, even whole grains turn to sugar. And dealing with the huge amounts of sugar over extended periods of time makes a person sick.
The body’s never ending struggle to deal with the large, unnatural amounts of sugar day after day and year after year doesn’t give the immune system the nutrition it needs, so one may more easily be overcome with disease. If this doesn’t happen, then diabetes is one’s lot and one’s immune system will still be highly vulnerable.
Without healthy food and exercise we’re in a pickle, and we become a receptacles for the pharmaceutical industry. It gives me no pleasure to present the following quote.
The quote is from Dr. John Virapen, former general manager of Eli Lilly in Sweden, whistleblower, and author of Side-Effect: Death.
“Pharmaceutical companies want to keep people sick. They want to make others think that they are sick. And they do this for one reason: money.
Pharmaceutical companies invest more than 35,000 Euro per physician each year to get them to prescribe their products. More than 75 percent of leading scientists in the field of medicine are ‘paid for’ by the pharmaceutical industry.
Corruption prevailed in the approval and marketing of drugs in some cases…
Illnesses are made up by the pharmaceutical industry and specifically marketed to enhance sales and market shares for the companies in question. Pharmaceutical companies increasingly target children.”
Is the pharmaceutical business a legal racket and yet a life saver? It’s sort of a “can’t live with them and can’t live without them” situation.
Yet more important is having a look at the way we supply energy to our selves. A diet composed mainly of wheat flower is very bad for us, and makes the body do back flips to keep us at a semblance of normality.
To change things for the better, eat a paleo diet. Then your body will not think it’s starving when it begins to digest what you’ve eaten.
Hunger rarely happens with a paleo diet. It’s the difference between a sugar high and a nutritious high. The sugar high needs more sugar to keep it going and the nutritious high is not anxious for more food.
The two books below tell us about the real world of health. This essay is based on the information in them and my personal experience after reading Dr. Sears’ book.

Moving from one’s health becoming worse and worse each day to becoming healthier and healthier each day is the goal.*
“The more you do the more you can do.”(ancient wisdom)
Be patient with progress however slow it may be. The key ingredient is to be a little more active than you were the day before. The more you do the more can do. The amount of “more” is up to the participant. Small changes work best because they keep us in the game of change. To start, choose something easy to do.
Standing up from a sitting position once each waking hour for a week. Then…
Standing from a sitting position twice an hour for a week.
Standing from a sitting position thrice an hour for a week.
And somewhere along the way remain standing up for a minute each time you stand, and then each week remain standing for a bit longer every day that week, and after a while, going for a short walk might not be so hard, and do the same thing with walking that you did with standing and work up to 30 minutes of walking five days of a week. Start with a walker if you have to and “have at it” a little more each day, that’s the goal. Before long who knows! Easy does it keeps us in the game.
On the way, it’s best to eat well. This means consuming very little to none of wheat and other grains. Why?
Getting rid of processed sugar and all the other sugar
which bread and other carbohydrates change into
allows the human animal to begin using
its own fat for energy.
Better health and more energy usually result.
* This short essay is not intended to be medical advice. It is simply what I have discovered firsthand after reading and following the above advice which came over many years from a series of books on health. Here’s a partial list of those life changing books:
Fit for Life by Mr and Ms Harvey Diamond
P.A.C.E. The 12-minute Fitness Revolution by Al Sears
Never Be Sick Again by Raymond Francis with Kester Cotton
Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora T. Gedgaudas
(P.A.C.E. The 12-minute Fitness Revolution & Never Be Sick Again are my favorites.)
Is the being a horse to be ridden by a cause? To be spiritual must I slip pass the door of conformity?
Is setting one’s horse free something that happens between an individual (the ego) and all of existence and is not necessarily concerned with tradition?
Is full awareness powerful enough to shatter my bastion of identity if it happened to me? Why does this possibility give me fear? Because I fear the unknown like any reasonable person?
What would happen to me, the identity?
Is it that I’m bound up in time’s imaginary linear rope and thus the traditions of my culture? What preserves this huge pile of influence? Is it part of the being’s luggage?
Is spirituality permeating me at this moment and I can’t perceive it because of my normal and habitual condition? What is this condition? Is it the going constantly back and forth from an entertainment to a constant dance with thoughts both spoken and silent?
Well, what’s the matter with that? Is it that it doesn’t allow my horse (my body and brain) to be free (to completely relax) from time to time?
Is good food and good exercise and good rest the health trinity? Or should good projects be included? A foursome!
What is the one word that could be the spearhead to better health?
How about the word cruciferous? But what if someone said “What about organic as the one word?”
Would the reply be that the word cruciferous points to the key group of vegetables having the greatest number and variety of micronutrients along with very few calories? And the word organic has the added step of having to ask organic what? Cruciferous vegetables? But one might one say “Small difference, it’s almost a tie.” Hold on…?
Does the word organic rule out the bad fats and the white carbohydrates, the two huge groups of low-nutrient and high-calorie poisons? Is poisons too harsh a word? Probably, but we are debating here with a straw man. OK, they are “good foods” for a bomb shelter.
