YOU DO HAVE CHOICES.
|As my spirit searches
for, finds and aligns itself closer and closer with GOD, so shall my body
search for, find and align itself closer and closer with nature. Your
food is an
opportunity to ingest nature's nutrients
to aid your body in performance. Sometimes
people organize into groups that develop artificial this and synthetic
that, their goals being shelf life and appeal to human taste buds. In fact,
sometimes the "foods" they make have been found to cause cancer and
other diseases, but we still permit these "foods" to be sold in OUR stores
to anybody who chooses to buy them. You
don't have to eat unhealthy food. You can choose what
muscles can be
developed in order to strengthen your body's
structure (muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, etc.) for better performance,
less risk of injury and faster recovery if by chance your body gets injured.
Sometimes people would rather not be bothered with
weight training, choosing to see it as a commitment, not an opportunity.
A "have to" instead of a "get to". You
can choose whether you want to see weight training as a "have to"
or a "get to".
|You can move
about playfully and raise your heart rate to improve your
and overall endurance for performance of and recovery from future
games. Sometimes people don't understand how
to monitor their heart rates. They believe that perspiration is a sign
of work, regardless of what pulse rate they are at. Sometimes people wear
plastic or rubber suits to enhance perspiration, which is loss of body
water. This kind of "weight loss" is not "fat loss", it's water loss. Water
is what the body and muscles are mostly made of, but sometimes people choose
to enhance the loss of this important nutrient when they are trying
to lose excess body fat. You can choose
to measure your heart rate and not enhance the loss of body water when
"fat loss" is what you are after.
||You can stretch
your body to maintain and enhance its flexibility. You can be an artist
maintaining and improving your equipment.
Sometimes people are bored with stretching. They don't understand
its short and long term benefits. You can
choose to involve yourself in stretching and receive the benefits it has
Yes, everyone has choices.
And life is fair. With effort we thrive, without it we perish. All of us
"live" and "die" from the choices we make. Sometimes people are overweight,
have excess body fat, have bad attitudes, are greedy, live half of the
years nature intended for them and half of those years are spent with old
age related problems. You can learn by watching what has happened
to people because of the choices they have made. Maybe they can help you
by serving as a living example of the consequences of unhealthy
|You can learn
from nature, your body is part of it. The plants and animals perform their
tasks with power and grace, commanding respect with their undying
efforts. The trees flow gracefully in the wind, the pounding splash of
the ocean's surf never ends, the awe inspiring magnitude of the mountains
exists for all to behold. Sometimes people
shoot their guns at innocent animals and call it "sport". If they
could see themselves through the eyes of the animals they might understand
how cruel this "sport" is. Sometimes people dump their refuse freely onto
and into nature's ground, water and air. Then we all are forced to live
in unclean environments. Nature
respect through its existence. Sometimes people demand respect to
qualify their existence. WE ALL can learn from nature's example.
You see, I used to make unhealthy
choices. I used to weigh 228 lbs. and was FAT. Now I weigh 200 lbs.
and am healthier. And every day, as I grow and use more and more
of my mind, body and soul, I become more healthy.
Every person has choices.
OPPORTUNITIES EXIST. YOU DO
Sometimes people are fueled by
human nature; enlightened people are fueled by spirituality. Sometimes
people are bound by human nature. You can be of the spirit, you
can be enlightened. In human nature you do something about something
when it bothers you enough.
spiritual nature you do something
about something because you know it's right.
You are not your body, you are you.
You use your body as long as you are in this world. You also use other
"residences". Some other examples of residences are houses, places of work,
cars, etc. Your body, being what you exist in for more time than any other
residence, is your
primary residence. Therefore, it only follows
logic that your body be in better shape (within its potential) then
your other residences (within their potential).
