The Diagnosis

Excerpt from : Let Food Be Thy Gift Aren’t we tired of being diagnosed?

Receive and Give Truth

Remember The Truth- this is what we build our practice on. We have been misled. Health doesn’t start with a diet, workout, supplement, shake, medication, detox, herbs, super foods, the right information, mantras, meditation, mindfulness, coaches or experts.

It does not make logical sense to be too hopeful, but onceContinue reading “Logically Thinking”

Thomas Merton on Sanity

“A devout memory of Adolf Eichmann” “One of the most disturbing facts that came out in the Eichmann trial was that a psychiatrist examined him and pronounced him perfectly sane. I do not doubt it all, and that is precisely why I find it disturbing. If all the Nazis had been psychotics, as some ofContinue reading “Thomas Merton on Sanity”
