care is self care
I used to believe that one diet would fit all, but I have
since learned this is not true, and one diet may not fit for
an entire life either. There is so much opposing health advice
out there that it is impossible to find all answers in a book.
So my current advice is: learn to listen to your body's
Similar to blurry vision, every ache and pain is a sign that
tries to tell you something and encourages you to change.
Figure out what makes you feel tired, achy and down, and figure
out what makes you feel good, great, and joyful. Pay attention
to such messages. Your body will guide you to optimal health
if you take time to listen and respond.
I no longer follow a particular diet, I leave my self free
to choose what feels right in that moment, and I adjust as
needed from the signals I receive. The sites below have been
helpful to me in the past, yet I don't necessarily subscribe
to their beliefs any more. Stay free from dogma and follow

included a few 'Positive

that can change the world by Joseph R Simonetta.
If you are looking for something worth reading today, this little
book more than qualifies. After I left my well paid NATO
job, I decided that whatever work I was going to do next would
have to fit three criteria. My new work would have to be
healthy for me, healthy for those I work with, and healthy for
the environment. I did not have any idea what I would do,
but I was not willing to compromise on these 3 criteria.
For 2 years I traveled around seemingly without a real goal, without
a job, searching for what I would do next and turning down several
employment opportunities because they failed in living up to one
or more of my new criteria. The first thing I came across
that did satisfy all three criteria was Natural Vision Education.
I've been happily involved in that field ever since. "Seven
words that can change the world" is a little book I only
recently came across, but it boils everything in life down to
those same 3 criteria that I live by. So I like it, and
I highly recommend it :-)

to and fro and the cry of a nighthawk, you know, they are unfailing

them I learned, entity, did you know in their steadfastness they
utter not one word? The sun did not look down at me and say, "Ramtha,
you must worship me in order to know me." And the moon did
not look down at me and say, "Ramtha, wake up; it is time
to look upon my beauty." It was there when I saw it, you
