Good Health as the Foundation of a Good Life

Society is sick. And I don’t mean society as an entity in itself, though it certainly is rotten to the core in many respects. I’m talking about the individuals that make up society. I would like to say that I’m referring to physical illness here, but to be honest I’ve begun to doubt that there …

Epiphany and Oblivion, Rinse, Repeat

Epiphany and Oblivion, Rinse, Repeat It’s time for a change. I can feel it in the air, in my bones. I’ve become soft. Complacent, even. After a period of superhuman strength, vibrant health, and sharp, clear awareness of my trajectory in life, I’ve inadvertently allowed myself to slide back into destructive tendencies. I think the …

Responsibility is Power

We must realize that responsibility is power. Deciding to take full ownership, unlimited responsibility for one’s own life and circumstances, is the most majestic decision a person can make. We’re raised to believe that responsibility is somehow a negative concept. “Who is responsible for this?!” the teacher would cry whenever a kid stepped out of …

Expanded Consciousness and the Zombie Horde

As I progress on my journey of expanded consciousness, I can’t avoid the conclusion that most people are fast asleep. Somnambulance is the modus operandi of the general population. I don’t think this is a novel development, although the massively interconnected global society we inhabit these days may make it more pronounced and noticeable. I …

The Role of Salt in Fasting

I’m commonly asked whether one should take electrolyte supplements when fasting. I must admit that during my first long fast, which lasted ten days, I didn’t add any salt to my water at all. That was a big mistake. It’s very important to maintain a healthy balance of salts (electrolytes) in your body during a …

Sexual desire is man’s most powerful and transformative energy, likewise it is the aspect of man that is most vulnerable to manipulation. The dominator culture we inhabit (assuming you were born, grew up, and …

How I Healed My Allergies for Good

Ever since I was a kid, I had allergies to all kinds of things. Pollen, cats, dogs, houseflies, dust. I also had something wrong with my digestion, and at various points in my life I thought I had gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, intolerance to various fruit, etc. Although people generally don’t make much of a …

On Love and Lust

“Love” is a word that we use pretty indiscriminately. “I love ice cream”, “I love Game of Thrones”, “I love you”. I think it’s unfortunate that we throw it around so haphazardly, because the essential concept behind the word is a very powerful one. Perhaps it’s not that big a deal that we say we …

The Immense Power of Sexual Energy

Porn is ruining your mind and your life. I believe pornography today will be viewed by future generations in the same way that we view tobacco today. They’ll think “Wow, it was so obviously harmful to individual and societal health, how did it take so long for them to see it?” In the 40s and …
