Be really Whole
And all things will come to you

 --Lao Tzu (Tao Te Ching 22)

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat;
nor about the body, what you will put on. . .    
Consider the ravens,
for they neither sow nor reap,
which have neither storehouse nor barn;
and God feeds them. 
Of how much more value are you than the birds? . . . . 
Consider the lilies, how they grow: 
they neither toil nor spin;
and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.   
If then God so clothes the grass,
which today is in the field
and tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
how much more you, O you of little faith? 
And do not seek what you should eat
or what you should drink,
nor have an anxious mind.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after,
and your Father knows that you need these things.
But seek the Kingdom of God,
and all these things shall be added to you.
  --Jesus (Luke 12:22, 30-31)
"There is nothing more detrimental to health than worrying about health.  I'm not talking about thinking and caring about health, but worrying about health."

Few Care about Health

Of all the people I know of personally, less than a handful even care about their health.  I know a lot about how to be healthy and how to have a near perfect diet but really I don't care so much about health and diet anymore.  It is not really the important thing in this life and I think I have decided that I don't feel like trying to share this with anyone anymore.  If you ask me, I will tell you what I remember.  I am about to forget all that. I forgot about what it took to make money several years ago, it is not the important thing in life.  I will be forgetting a lot of useless things in the near future.  One other thing, I am going to forget how this world plays out it's story.  It is a terrible story, I am glad it is just a dream.  I am soon to check out of the story of this world.  I am a free man.  I just am.  Nothing more.  And when it is time for this to die, it and you will no longer exist.  However, the I (that is "You" included) never dies.

Quiet the Mind

Spend some time in silence, not thinking or feeling anything. Start small and gradually increase the time, but never force it. You just sit quietly, any place you will not be disturbed, at home, at the library, in the park, or in the car is fine. Start with 10 minutes and eventually increase to maybe 30 minutes or even 4 hours. Just sit there, either with eyes open and spaced out or eyes closed and aware but not sleeping. Wear sunglasses if it helps so people aren't wondering what you are looking at and asking you about it.  Eventually you will be able to do this even while you are doing other things. Thoughts will appear but do not be the thoughts, let them pass like clouds without acknowledging them. If it is hard not to think, then just be aware of your breathing but don't try to change your breathing. And also be separate from your thoughts, you are not your thoughts. Once you get in the habit of doing this, there is actually something you want to look at. It is a little difficult to explain this. In fact, I will just briefly tell you but I will most likely need to elaborate another time. But, there is an awareness that is always present in everyone at all times. It is beyond thoughts. When your eyes are open it is right there and when you close your eyes it is still there. You can not pinpoint it you can just observe that it is there. It has always been there, you just most likely never noticed it. It will quiet your mind and you will know peace like you never knew before.

Boetje's Mustard is Still Alive

My daughter did the research for me.  It turns out that Boetje's is still in business but they changed their web address and no longer sell things on their own website anymore.  However, there is a link below of a company called Mustard Museum that does sell their products.  Great job daughter.
 Boetje's is also much older that I thought.  They started 123 years ago in 1889. Boetje's Mustard is an award winning Stone Ground Mustard and Dutch Mustard...See More:

Old Food Posts

I will be removing a lot of the old posts about disgusting foods.  They are a bit negative and don't reflect the direction life has been leading.  Many of the old posts are also outdated.  For instance Boetje's Dutch Style Mustard.  I'm not sure if they are even in business anymore.  That's a shame if it's true as they made an excellent product for over 40 years.  I haven't been able to find their website for a few years now.  I will have to check with family to see if they are still in business.  If they are not, there is little point in keeping that post up.

Food Fact: Kale. Dr. Joseph Mercola

Food Fact: Kale eases lung congestion and is beneficial to the stomach, liver and immune system. It contains lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect the eyes from macular degeneration. It also contains indole-3-carbinol, which may protect against colon cancer. Kale is an excellent source of calcium, iron, vitamins A and C, and chlorophyll.

I can talk about food right?  Who is not interested in food?  Personally, I hate the idea of food.  I am so tired of it.  Really Now.  I wish I could be a breatharian.  Not eating food but getting my fuel from the air.  There may be a couple people in current times that are actually doing that, who knows.  If it is possible, I don't think I am at that level or place and I doubt they would be reading my blog so I won't go there.
However, I may talk about my ideal diet and way of living.  No, I don't live there yet.  It is like the perfect plan that I am inching towards.   As a general rule, I eat what ever I feel like but with my ideal in mind, I am slowly and surely getting to my ideal.  I will share my ideal diet and living with you later.  Good night friends.

Losing Myself

there is this experience lately that I am losing myself.  I am just trying to hang on.  I Am concerned for my daughters.  I Am hanging on for them.  I can do it.  It just seems like I am fading and fading away.  Even when I am driving down the highway to and from work.  I could just easily lose consciousness.  Driving is the difficult task; to say awake I mean.

How about a change here.

My daughter recently suggested that I start a blog.  Well, I already have a blog.  I just abandoned it for a few years while I went on a spiritual quest. Then I got side tracked with facebook.   However, I think I am ready to do this again.  But, this time I am going to change the content of the blog a bit.  It used to be about all the gross stuff people eat whether they know it or not.  Now I want to make it about anything I feel like sharing.  Mostly weird and strange things because I am that kind of person, but more normal stuff as well.
So, lets give this another go, shall I.
