The Reality of Deception

When deception enters into the dynamics of a relationship, damage occurs. Dark, ugly, thunderous damage, that is damage like no other. 

Deception creates damage that often cannot be reversed. It creates damage that wounds and hurts like no other. Deception wounds and hurts so devastatingly, so dreadfully, because it tampers with the reality that is being experienced by those bound together by the relationship.

Discovering you are being deceived creates a sense of betrayal of trust like no other. It is initially shocking, but ultimately deeply, deeply painful. 

Deception shatters the reality of others. It erodes trust and respect like nothing else. Damaging another person's sense of reality, by engaging in deception, is indeed very, very immoral and very cruel.

Deception involves blatant compromising. It involves deliberately risking and compromising the trust and respect that should be deemed unconditionally foundational and key always. 

That deemed key to a healthy, loving and caring relationship? It should have no link whatsoever to the plans and orchestrations carried out by deception ever.

Deception sows insecurity and distrust like nothing else.

Deception plays with truth and what is real. Deception spits at integrity and transparency. It poisons them and the ability for them to thrive is gravely thwarted. 

Deception tears a relationship apart. The inability to trust what is being said, to trust what is being done or to trust what will be done; deception only can ever sow a road for destruction. 

Deception seeds the dissolution of a relationship, no matter how much the deceiver tries to blindly believe it doesn't.

Relationships require several key principles to be in place, and kept in place, for them to be strong, healthy and enduring. These key principles include trust, openness, mutual respect and personal freedom. When these key principles are not daily nurtured and guarded, deception has claimed great ground.

Honesty has to be present each and every day in a relationship, and honesty and deception simply cannot be happy bedfellows. 

Love lasts when how we are being treated remains safe, healthy and very trustworthy. Deception and love simply cannot travel along together pretending to hold hands. 

Deception rocks and tampers with the core foundations of a relationship. Those that engage in deception are attempting to fool not only others, but also themselves, as to the survivability of the relationship going forward.

Deception and lies shatter the reality of others. 

The reality of what deception is and what it does? Deception is a force of destruction no matter how small it begins. 

Deception paves the way for so many forms of infidelity, no matter how clever the deceiver thinks they may be at controlling the outcomes of enacting deception.

Deception is linked to disloyalty. Deception is linked to unfaithfulness. When an agreed commitment and promise is deliberately reneged on and broken, again and again, deception has clearly entered the game. 

To deceive is to actively cheat.

You cheat, you rob, you steal from the other person when you allow deception to enter in and guide the doing of both little and larger things. Those unfaithful in small things fool only themselves if they think faithfulness and loyalty are only required for the bigger things of life.

A deceiver deceives themselves. They are personally ultimately robbed, they are personally ultimately stolen from, in both little and larger things, when being deceptive has become part of how they contribute to the dynamics of a relationship. 

A promise keeper must be a promise keeper always, not only when it best suits himself.

Respect, love, honesty and freedom are core values central always to a healthy and safe relationship. Without them, a relationship is nothing but a hollow and shallow shell of what it could in fact be.

Being at the receiving end of deception is devastating. Deception breaks trust like nothing else. Deception is truly a heart breaker.

Deception ushers in confusion, anger, anxiety, doubt and even shame. The hurt that deception lays down creates a deep path, one that takes a considerably long time to process and recover from. 

A relationship damaged by deception simply cannot be healed overnight, and sometimes it cannot be healed at all. 

A victim of deception is not responsible for the actions of their deceiver. No, not ever. 

Fault and blame must be laid at the feet of the rightfully responsible person; the deceiver. 

Nothing will ever justify or rectify the act of deception the deceiver chose to sow and lay out to be harvested. Fault and blame squarely lie solely at the deceiver's feet.

We all must reap what we each sow in this life, and to blame the harvest sown by deception on the innocent is another great, unwarranted, secondary deception at times engaged in by a habitual deceiver.

It is devastating to wake up to a relationship being one that contained deceit. 

It is devastating to realisation that you sadly really cannot expect anything but further deceit from someone who has made a habit and art of not only deceiving others, but also themselves. 

Regardless of what onlookers may say and wish to see orchestrated, those that have run foul and victim to a deceiver are very entitled to choose to move forward seeking what is safest, what is healthiest and what is most real and true for them only. A deceiver warrants the fruit of their deception falling back solely best around only themselves.

It is normal to still feel love and care for someone who engages in deception. You can love what perhaps what once was, and you can love what might have been.

Reality however, can also reveal that the best, the safest and healthiest way forward is really to ensure one shows love, respect and care first and foremost to oneself. 

The mind and the heart need to be given as much time as they need and require to heal. Sometimes the time and space needed are substantially bigger than first anticipated, and that is why compassion and empathy must always be extended.

We simply do not have to condone bad choices and bad experiences, that others habitually put us through, in an unloving and uncaring fashion. 

Deception is a bad choice. An incredibly bad choice. Deception is a bad experience. An incredibly, heart wrenching bad experience. 

Deception has no place whatsoever alongside true love and true care ever. No, not ever.

Love, true and unconditional, real, safe and healthy love, is never kept in the company of deception.

Being the victim of deception is traumatic. It is heart wrenching and it is heartbreaking. 

Recovering from deception's devastation requires the support and care of others who compassionately come alongside us. It is wise often to also seek out professional help, alongside the love and support offered by family and close friends that we can and do trust.

Being dealt a new reality at the hand of a deceiver, requires new strategies for facing and living out one's daily life. 

There is hope. There is always hope, and one day the pain and the devastation will be ever so much less overpowering and overwhelming. 

The reality of deception? Deception is cruel, it is unkind and it is completely morally corrupt. 

The reality after experiencing the heart break caused by deception at the hand of someone else?

There is life, a good, safe and very beautiful life ahead in one's future, beyond and far away from both the deceiver and their wicked and very dark, low and thunderous ways.  

Hang on, Hurting Heart, hang on. Hang on as best you can, and choose to raise your head that little bit higher with each passing day, in order to watch for the rainbow about to appear, high and brilliant, in your own clearing sky.








A Time for Mourning

A good proportion of the world is in mourning during these early days of September 2022. The death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has touched many, from all walks of life, these past several days of September. 

At the heart of what seems to be a world of mourning people, stands the British Royal Family, who have currently been subjected to prying eyes and prying cameras daily, repeatedly; all the while having to deal, as best they each can, with their individual experience of heartache and grief, all due to the passing of their much loved Granny and mother.

It has been interesting to observe how the world responds to mourning and those mourning. Much has been revealed, particularly via the media and social media, about underlying attitudes and mindsets, and frankly some of what is revealed is not at all good, but instead horribly bad and revoltingly ugly. 

Some of what has been revealed has been less than human and less than humane. It has instead been proven to be most unfortunately inhumane and unfeeling. 

In 2022, there are those who believe freedom of speech warrants freedom to pass critical, harsh, boundary-less judgements against those who are key mourners. 

There are those in 2022 who believe freedom of speech provides a warrant to have the unquestionable, complete right to mock, to pinpoint and to over analysis every single gesture and every single action of those who are central mourning figures. 

Prying eyes and prying cameras, they are each being used as tools to endeavour to capture and directly shape underlying thoughts and attitudes worldwide in 2022. 

In 2022, it is considered by some to be rightfully correct to use the mourning as subjects for entertainment and subjects for public scrutiny. 

Not only the good, but the bad and ugly have been repeatedly tabled, for all time, about current and past human history, and human choices, attitudes and behaviours as they stand in their diversity in September 2022.

There are those that have chosen to stand for literally hours to respectfully file past a draped coffin, as it rests for a time in both Scottish and English places it is laid in. 

There are those that have carefully chosen plush Paddington Bear toys, written notes of sincere sympathy and condolence. 

There are those that have placed bouquets of beautiful blooms and sunflowers outside gates of royal residences and other designated points for memorials. 

The list of acts of respectful and kind gestures, both public and private, that are part and parcel of mourning and grieving in 2022 are notably long.

There have been those that have been seen to speak quiet words of comfort. 

There have been those who have been recorded speaking words of sweet remembrance, as well as those who have shown a desire to express and to offer small, gentle acts of assurance and even hope. 

Yet, others have only offered up for historic human history records words of judgement, bitterness, harshness and even poked deliberate, unkind fun. 

The record of human responses, in this current time of mourning, show they are most varied and diverse, particularly in what they reveal about the cross-section of humanity present and living in 2022.

A good proportion of the world is in mourning, and knows how to show kindness and compassion to the key party of those mourning. 

There are those who are the champions amongst us when it comes to good character, common, good human decency and good etiquette, and they are what some would clearly refer to as the salt of the earth in 2022.

Yet others simply have expressed no desire whatsoever in September 2022 to engage in such acts or gifts of notable good character or good social etiquette towards those key people who are mourning. 

Instead, they want to favour their own need for freedom to say what they like, when they like, how they like and where they like. 

Freedom of speech in 2022 has meant for them that there is no time like the present time to lay out judgement, analysis and harsh hatred. A time for mourning to them is just no different to any other season of time, it is just another opportunity to do and say as they blatantly will.

Humane respect for those mourning prevails amongst some in 2022. Loss and heartache are known to be hard, yet others see their right to freedom of speech to be far, far more important. 

The need to keep the wheels of gossip, the wheels of online and offline harsh discussion turning and spiraling along are deemed far more incredibly important. 

There are views, there are subscription numbers and even dollars to be gained and had, and there is no time like the current time, according to some, to make sure that is these alleged paramountly important goals are achieved.  

A good story is deemed by some to be a story containing biased, subjective analysis upon analysis, no matter how much actual reliable, factual truth may be otherwise present.

In 2022, this time of mourning is instead to been seen, by some, to be yet another opportunity to subject judgement and frankly scathing words of unkindness and hatred. 

It is not hard to find those willing to publicly table and pass judgement on every physical gesture or facial expression of a family member, be it walking in a formal procession or pausing to look at a floral tribute. 

Videos, reports, photographs pointedly focused by some have endeavoured to determine that yet again certain individuals are only worthy of lesser respect, lesser compassion and lesser understanding. As they walk literally and figuratively through the act of mourning they are deemed to be good and easy subjects and targets for prey instead.

A time of mourning it is deemed by some to be no more important or significant than any other time or season in human history.

Kindness in a time of mourning? It would surely be a natural, humane gesture and gift to extend to another human being, in their time of vulnerability and deep heartache, yet for some, it is most definitely not their first natural choice of response in September 2022.

In 2022 a good portion of humanity know, without question, that a time of mourning is a particular, unique season and time. 

There are those that still know that a time for mourning is a time with its own unique set of underlying guidelines about what is fitting human behaviour, fitting human attitudes and fitting human actions. 

Yet for others, here in September 2022, they are so out of touch with what is humane, what is decent, fitting and appropriate and human, that they expose their own lack of timeliness and timely sound judgement.

A time for mourning. It was once a holy thing. It was once unquestionably a time understood by all to have its own specific guidelines and understandings for the good of all humanity.

Those that unitedly and rightly acknowledge once again, even today in 2022, without question how important it is to rightly behave, to rightly speak, to rightly focus solely on offering unquestionable support and kindness to those key figures most vulnerable and hurting with grief, do so, for the good of all that is human. 

Freedom of Speech has never been, nor should ever be, an unquestionable warrant to disregard the natural laws and decencies of a time of mourning. 

Those that mourn, be they a princely lord or a commoner, ARE deserving of the all the full rites of mourning and the respect duly due them for their time and season of mourning. 

There IS a time and place for mourning.





Pumpkin Soup.... It is a Power Packed Winner!


Pumpkin soup can be a power packed way to get wonderful good-for-you nutrients. 

This pumpkin soup recipe is very yummy. Our household highly recommends it.



PUMPKIN SOUP RECIPE

Ingredients:


1 whole pumpkin
1 medium chopped onion
3 – 4 crushed garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon of mineral salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
a pinch of cayenne pepper
a twist or two of black pepper
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric (optional)


Method:


1. Wash the pumpkin, then place it on an oven tray in a moderate oven to bake for 20 – 30 minutes, in order to soften pumpkin skin. Remove the pumpkin from the oven once skin is clearly softening, and put it aside to cool for several minutes.


2. Carefully peel the skin from the pumpkin. Use a spoon to easily remove the seeds and their surrounding pulp.


3. Half fill a large stockpot or your slower cooker with water. Chop the flesh of the pumpkin into small chunks, and place the pumpkin pieces into the slower cooker/pot.


4. Add the chopped onion, the crushed garlic and the other ingredients to the pumpkin and water mixture. Stir the ingredients to combine.


5. Bring the soup mixture steadily to a boil and cook until the pumpkin is tender.


6. Once the soup is cooked, you can then remove it from the heat and use a stick blender or a similar blending tool, to blend it until it is smooth in texture. The soup can be thinned by adding additional water if required. Season with salt and pepper as desired when serving.


7. Pumpkin soup can keep in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days, or it can be put aside in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just thaw it as required and reheat using your chosen method.


Pumpkin soup is both nutritious and delicious... Enjoy!


One's Mindset... It IS A Powerful Force

John Easterling and Olivia Newton-John, August 2020

This week, whilst looking online on Youtube, I discovered a very interesting interview of the late Olivia Newton-John alongside her husband, John Easterling. 

It is an interview that occurred in August 2020. During the interview, they both share and talk about the power and role of mindset when it comes to one's health and well-being; particularly when dealing with challenging and hard health journeys. 

It was an incredibly interesting interview to watch. I am glad it was something that turned up on my personal Youtube newsfeed recommendation list this past week. 

Olivia Newton-John sadly recently passed away at the age of 73. This 2020 interview video was about her and her personal challenging health journey with cancer, and how she and her family have chosen to deal with it.

Olivia Newton-John was clearly a person that approached the challenging trials life sent her health-wise, in a very admirable and inspiring way. She chose to journey through those very trials in a way that possibly few people automatically choose.... she chose to stay upbeat and positive, no matter what, as best she could.

Mindset is a very powerful force. 

The greatest battle we each personally experience in life is clearly in the mind. Our thoughts totally matter.

I remember reading Joyce Meyer's book, "The Battlefield of the Mind" many years ago. It is a book that is worth having a copy of and it is worth reading again, every so often, to give your thought life and mindset a bit of an occasional self audit. It is a book I personally recommend reading.

What you think, what mindset you uphold and hold fast to, truly affects your day to day experience. Your mindset, be it positive or negative, fixed or open, most definitely does affect your health both in the short term and the long term.  

The human body is truly both a mysterious and wonderful thing. What goes on within the mind also affects and even manifests in the body. We need to be very mindful of our mind and what is is minding!

What you think can affect you mood wise. What you think can affect you chemically. What you think can determine your overall well-being and health. We need to keep checking what is going on with our thinking and therefore the level of calm and peace we are experiencing, both literally and figuratively. 

Worry and concern, anxiety and stress seed as thoughts. They originate and begin within the mind. They go on to literally trigger our focus shifting to fight or flight mechanisms, and those thoughts soon manifest as actual literal chemicals and hormones travelling through our physical body. When those chemicals and hormones become highly concentrated, when they become a source of literal bodily imbalance, they become very unhelpful. They become very detrimental and even toxic on the literal health and well-being front.

Our mindset is incredibly significant and incredibly important on the health and well-being front. We really cannot ignore the connection that exists between our mind, as well as our emotions, and our actual literal physical well-being. One's mindset, one's thought life, is a very powerful force.

I found watching this interview today very worthwhile. It was a source of encouragement, inspiration and most thought provoking information. Here is the link to the video if you would like to watch it also:  John Easterling & Olivia Newton-John Interview, August 2020.

Your mindset. It is a powerful force. It clearly makes a difference what you think and therefore what you tell your body...... because as is shared in the interview, your body is always listening to your mind and thoughts. 

Olivia Newton-John has left a legacy, about the relationship between mindset and well-being, that I personally have learnt so much from this past week. May she truly rest in peace.




Power packed Pumpkins??? We are keen to plant them!

It is August and hints of Spring are already about! We have started to get seeds ready for planting in our household, and we are very keen to eventually plant pumpkins and squash in a dedicated area of the garden.

Pumpkin soup and fish pie (using mashed pumpkin instead of mashed potato as the top layer), are big favourites in our household!).

Here are 10 interesting and GREAT-TO-KNOW organic food facts all about pumpkins I recently discovered..... who knew pumpkins were so good for us!

1. Pumpkins are packed with antioxidants and nutrients.

2. Pumpkin seed is a rich source of polyphenols and other bioactive compounds that may act as chemopreventive agents against cancer.

3. Pumpkins contain carotene and beta-carotene, which are good for the immune system, as well as our skin and eye health. Carotenoids give winter squash (and pumpkins) their yellow and orange colors and help protect the body's cells from damage.

4. Pumpkin is packed with fibre, potassium (which is good for blood pressure and decreasing the risk of stroke) and vitamin C, which are all good for heart health.

5. With its low calorie content, pumpkin is a weight-loss-friendly food.

6. Diets rich in pumpkin seeds have been associated with a reduced risk of stomach, breast, lung, prostate and colon cancers.

7. Pumpkin is mildly diuretic in nature and may harm people who take medicines such as lithium.

8. Pumpkin is a source of low-calorie nutrition, which reduces the risk of obesity.

9. Pumpkins are considered to be one of the top cancer-fighting foods because they are packed with anti-oxidants and nutrients.

10. A study found that consuming sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds reduced the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women compared to women who did not eat these seeds.

The takeaway points from these interesting facts about pumpkins? Pumpkins are really good for you!

Seriously consider adding some pumpkins, as well as ready to snack on packs of pumpkin seeds, to your next supermarket shopping list.....or better still aim to grow pumpkin in your own garden this growing season, so you can share their goodness with your whanau/family, neighbours & friends (it is always nice to be able to share homegrown, spray-free garden produce)!

P.S If you save your pumpkin seeds (like all seeds) for at least three generations, to replant them season after season, you will have pumpkin seeds that are eventually perfect for your garden and climate conditions. Check out the size of the pumpkin in the photograph below, one grown from our own saved seed!

Happy homemaking (and gardening), Everyone!



Toxicity.... it kills.

The human body by all accounts is a hard working, finely tuned machine.  For most of us we take its daily operation and function predominately for granted. We get up, we begin our day, we travel along through it and at the end of the day we settle down to once again begin the cycle of sleeping then getting up all over again.

For a good portion of humanity, we each take this fleshly vessel we have, called a human body, pretty much for granted. 

A good portion of us take the human body that is ours and how it works and functions for granted. 

A good number of us go about our day and we expect our body to do exactly what we desire it to do, in and at any given moment, and we have the lucky privilege to believe all is indeed well body-wise and therefore health-wise.

A good, fair percentage of human beings live, breathe and get to carry on and do whatever we each please each and every single day, with the aid of this hard working, finely tuned, seemingly healthy machine made directly available to each of us and which we call the human body.

Like any machine, over time wear and tear, as well as use and abuse, do begin to exhibit themselves and therefore manifest in and on the human body. 

We are however over time (be it short or long) going to be delivered, via Natural Law kicking in, all the consequences of how we have gone about choosing to look after the fleshly, mortal human vessel and machine that we each sleep, eat and walk around in.

Harm, injury and death are guaranteed to kick in at some point as part of living as a human being.

Harm, injury and death are most definitely part & parcel of being human, according to all the statistics that have ever existed. 

For all its wonder, the human body is however both a working machine and also an incredibly complex chemical structure. 

It is a chemical structure carefully balanced and carefully ordered, and like all chemical structures each molecular component needs to stay in good working and functioning position and order.

Whatever we each expose our human body has an effect on it. 

Whatever we each unknowingly expose our human body to also has an effect on it. 

As a mass of carefully knitted together chemicals, the human body when exposed to other outside chemicals (and lets face it, everything within the universe is made up of chemicals) is repeatedly always potentially exposed to harm and therefore harmful effects.

We each travel along on our individual life journey with our bodies always trying to dodge off the bullet of toxicity. 

We are all travelling through life for the most part completely unaware of what goes on at a molecular level to keep our human body functioning, working and therefore living.

Yet the human body, regardless of whether it is asleep or awake, is always battling against harm, injury and death at the hand of toxicity deep down at a chemical and molecular level. This is our human reality, regardless of whether we are truly aware of the absolute importance of all that is unseen at a molecular level within the human body or not. Within the time and space that is experienced within any given human lifetime, the battle around how toxic the human body is is in fact being fought, all the time, unceasingly. 

At a chemical level, at a deep, unseen molecular level, this battle over toxicity, over the ability for balance and equilibrium within the human body, is one that is constantly occurring. 

Whether we each as individual persons choose to directly acknowledge it or not, we are walking around as a finely tuned combination of chemicals, a finely tuned immensely complex molecular structure, trying to hold it together against other outside chemicals and minuscule molecular particles. 

This battle at a chemical level centres around this state of being in balance, this state of being in perfect equilibrium and therefore being in calm, perfect order. 

Toxicity, when it kicks in, causes imbalance and disorder to occur which in turn causes harm, injury and eventually destruction and therefore death to occur. 

Harm, injury and death are guaranteed to take effect at some point in time on us humans beings. Just when it kicks in for each of us, this ultimate outcome of dysfunction, disorder, destruction..... that is the ultimate, often yet unknown question.

Toxicity sets in place the degrading of the human body. It gradually and steadily aims to degrade chemical molecular structures. It degrades and it attacks the core molecular essence of being.

There are the classic signs of toxicity that we have all become very accustomed to seeing and experiencing and which we deem to be called ageing. 

If we pause for a moment and really consider how ageing comes about, the realisation does eventually kick in that ageing is in fact a literal manifestation of reaction to wear and tear, to harm and injury, and therefore toxicity is playing out its purpose. Ageing is most definitely experienced at the hand of where we are each at, specifically in relation to our body's toxicity levels.

Humankind as a whole has come to understand it is perfectly normal for all human beings to eventually succumb to harm, to injury, to death. We expect at some point our human bodies to manifest the ultimate sign of dysfunction, disorder, deconstruction occurring; we expect to see and experience death.

We not only have come to expect death, we have come to accept death, as part and parcel of human life. 

We have come to expect that the human body will eventually succumb to all it has been negatively subjected to, within any given human life time. We have come to expect a lifetime of toxicity to finally win the battle. Even if we do not actually directly name toxicity as being the reason for human death, but focus alternatively on it being named as liver damage, or heart failure, or some other tissue or organ malfunction instead, the reality is that it is toxicity that has in fact killed.

Drinking water that contains lead is known to cause harm, injury and death. 

Being exposed to fumes from cars and vehicles repeatedly over time is known to cause harm, injury and death. 

Eating food laced with chemicals that are by nature inorganic and artificially and synthetically manufactured is known to cause harm, injury and death. 

Both in the short and the long term, food and anything which contains toxins and is taken internally into the human body causes these very results.

Regardless of whether an individual knows or does not know the chemical makeup of what they are being exposed to, the ability for harm, for injury and for death are in no way lessened because toxicity has actually occurred. 

Ignorance does not invalidated the power of a toxin to do its work against the human body.

Ignorance does not invalidated the power of a toxic chemical to go about actively causing disorder, dysfunction and destruction. Toxicity does eventually harm, injure and kill.

Headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, weakness. a high temperature, diarrhoea, stomach pain, loss of appetite, feeling chilled and therefore wanting to shiver.... these are all deemed signs of the human body being in some measure out of equilibrium and out of balance. These have become commonly recorded negative manifestations of actual toxicity. 

Behavioural changes, skin irritations, they also over time manifest to show when some form of destructive toxicity is present. 

Toxicity leads always, when kept out of check, eventually to death. 

It is a great shame that we are not taught more transparently and more openly during our schooling years about toxicity, its causes and the actual warning signs of its presence. 

Why have we accepted the teaching given to us to simply keep masking a headache with pain relief? 

Why do we not seek to pause and consider the benefit instead of having a headache as a warning sign from the body that toxicity has and is in fact occurring, rather than choose to relief ourselves from the manifestation of pain it is causing? 

Why do we so often choose to not purposely and actively seek to detox and totally deal to and get rid of the underlying toxin behind the headache? 

Why have we so foolishly bought into believing it is okay to medicate and therefore mask the presence of a toxin so it stays present and secretly hidden, steadily and quietly continuing on its course of creating disfunction, disorder and destruction?

The human race has unfortunately unwittingly been dumbed down to not listen to what the human body is able to itself identify and state is occurring. 

The human race is bought into being told to get rid of manifestations, rather seek to solve toxicity at its root point and cause. 

We have been told to focus on manifestations and signs, and instead leave the root cause (the actual presence of toxicity) able to stay unwittingly present for that bit longer. 

We spend copious amounts of hard earned dollars on medications to relieve and mask manifestations and signs indicating toxicity is occurring, yet we foolishly avoid seeking to root out the actual causes once and for all. How sad that is.

We have gravely abandoned the intelligence of the actual human body to instead buy into an external lie that a sign of disorder and chemical imbalance being present is more important than the actual root cause of the disorder and imbalance that triggered a manifestation of pain or sickness in the first place. 

Toxicity harms, injure and kills and we humans reap the results of our individual lack of knowledge and therefore wisdom around toxicity and how it attacks the balance of the human body most unfortunately instead.

It is an incredibly great shame that so many people lack actual knowledge about how the human body is constantly up against a battle against toxicity. If they knew, it would literally save lives.

Although many of us know that the human body is made up of approximately 60 - 65% water, our understanding of how the human body needs to keep within a certain pH level in order to not be swayed by toxicity is just not for many people common knowledge! This is a great travesty.

We human beings become very much what we eat. We human beings become very much what we drink. We human beings become very much a mirror of what we are each exposed to 24 hours a day. We human beings are increasingly or decreasingly literally toxic, according to what we are allowing ourselves to be exposed to.

Retaining our right to informed consent, retaining our right to informed knowledge, aids us and keeps us safe and healthy and therefore literally less toxic at a chemical and molecular level. 

As we endeavour to navigate our way through our individual life time, all the while living within a fleshly human body, we each truly need to each be aware of what is toxic to the human body and what is also non-toxic and therefore a far better and safer option. 

Toxicity, when allowed to take hold is guaranteed to cause injury, it is guaranteed to cause harm, it is guaranteed to cause death. Yet too often, we dismiss what is known to cause toxicity and cling to a hope that somehow we will be lucky enough to dodge the very bullet being aimed at us.

It is truly up to each of us to choose to put the time, energy and effort in to gaining the necessary wisdom and knowledge to keep our finely tuned, vulnerable machine of a fleshly, human body in good, non-toxic pecking order.

Every human being has the right to choose to actively seek to be fully informed about what it is chemically we are additionally being exposed to in all spheres of life. 

Every human being surely also has the right to try to not be exposed to that which is harmful, injurious and therefore toxic to the human body.

Every human being should be freely able to ask questions and expect informative, truthful answers when wishing to know how truly and fully toxic something may or may not be. 

Surely, we should all be unanimously in agreement around each of these fundamental human rights?

Surely we should all be unanimously in agreement that both quality and quantity of life is a good thing to experience individually, and also collectively, as a species of living beings?

Toxicity.... it harms, it injures, it kills and that IS unquestionably a historically, scientifically and medically proven fact. 

It is up to each of us to do our part, for not only ourselves but others also. We need to keep toxicity best at bay, for the sake of all of humankind. May we each choose to actively seek to become wiser and more knowledgeable, for the sake of greater & better health and well-being, in the coming year.
