Health is both a precious and a fragile gift. To unpack and to enjoy this gift, you need to know and live by, or adhere to, its principles. To maintain this gift, you need to consistently take specific actions in line with these principles. When you don’t, you give up the gift of health. When you lose health, you get pain and suffering. You depreciate the quality of your life. In addition to less enjoyment, you can also expect to speed up your checkout date.
Suffering is not pre-destined. It comes from not following the rules that life set for you in nature. The right kind of knowledge can prevent or end most of your suffering, and much of your pain. For me, sharing knowledge to help alleviate people’s pain and suffering, and even more important, to improve quality of life, is the most rewarding way to spend time. That’s why I do it. I love to do it, and I’m grateful that I get to do it.
Anything that can improve quality of life interests me. This applies not just to oils, not just to food and fitness, but also to air and water, mental and emotional functioning, self-knowledge, social issues, concerns about our natural environment, and the source that creates, sustains and welcomes home all creatures when their time is done. Each of the above affects your health in a different way, and each deserves, needs and demands a different kind of attention.
Anything I can do to help in any of these areas is my privilege. I want to help as many of the 8 billion presently living people as possible. It’s my honor to pass on what I’ve learned about all of these topics to those of you who want to know.
Sources of Knowledge
My knowledge of these topics comes from many different global sources. I spent much of my childhood in nature, watching the way the planet and its creatures interact. In university, I studied sciences, biological sciences and psychology. Various cultures and traditions around the world have collected healing folk wisdom from nature. Some of my knowledge comes from trial and error, driven by my own pain and experiences with both health and illness.
Asking bold questions in unique ways led me to unique answers and new understanding. Some of my knowledge about and insight into human nature comes from deep fascination with life, living and self-observation. To sit still in voluntary solitude, and look, listen, feel and learn the profound inner richness, wisdom, love, power and genius of life ranks high.
My deepest understanding, insight and knowledge comes from the experience of self-knowledge, which includes having made calmness and contentment a priority in my life. Why is THAT important? When I feel life’s care for me while involved in the world of dramas, traumas, stress and changing circumstances, I’m not fearfully scheming and trying to find ways to GET taken care of.
Then I can calmly take time to be, to see, to hear, to feel, to know and to understand the nature of life on every level. Then, I can share with others what I’ve discovered and come to know in my quiet moments in the inner classroom, about the kindness, care and healing power of life.
Someone said: ‘In silence, EVERYTHING reveals itself to you’. Einstein is said to have once said: ‘I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.’ In silence, there’s clarity. You find your deepest insights into your life in deliberately cultivated silence. I can confirm this from personal experience.
