The Context of Our Discipline

The Context of Our Discipline

No one can focus on every discipline at once. I love to talk about disciplines; I’m passionate about it, but it relies on context. Within nutrition, there are times for disciplines that help one lose weight and there are times for disciplines that help one gain weight; the same is true with both psychological and spiritual disciplines!

Generosity – The Proving Element of Love

Generosity – The Proving Element of Love

Josh:

rarity_generosity_necklace_by_ryoki_fureaokibi-d4ieaj0.pngMe and Doctor Showbizhair watch a show called My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is an educational television series about the magic of friendship…. That’s what I choose to refer to it as, anyway. In this show, there exists something called “the elements of harmony”. These elements represent the magic that is found in friendship. And one of these elements is “generosity”.

Brain Drain

Brain Drain

Doctor Showbizhair:

You are on the Ethernet air with Doctor Showbizhair. Last week JC and I had a cool little conversation on an excellent book called Grain Brain, by David Perlmutter, MD. Now we only had twenty minutes to talk about stuff and we got a little side tracked on a fascinating subject. But since this is about Grain Brain I suppose it should be limited to discussion.

Setting the Bar #3

Setting the Bar #3

This last month has easily contained the most problems we have ran into with our progress charting for you all in these “Setting the Bar” posts! Our last six weeks actually should have been half-way through August; however, some of our team was not healthy enough to make the post. Sense we have had these health issues and other complications, we have learned a lot about the reality of health for the body, mind, and soul.

Hopefully, seeing how we all have handled our health throughout these difficult situations can help inspire all of you reading to do your best in difficult situations, as well. Hopefully, all of us on the writting team here can help inspire one another, also.

Addictiv’: Body, Mind, and Spirit

Addictiv’: Body, Mind, and Spirit

This post I am currently writing right now I feel is a serious discussion, and that there are large number of elements that come into play when it comes to addictions.  Addictions have a way of appearing in a person’s life without them knowing they have an addiction, because our personalities tend to have addictive tendencies.  We always are craving something, wanting something, or needing something.  And for the most part, I feel we have fair warnings of possibly becoming addicted to anything we start.

Artificially Sweet

Artificially Sweet

A couple weeks back, on the first day of my sociology class, my professor split the whole class into groups and gave us all a bag full of items found in the everyday home. He asked every group to identify how each item could “speak about” families (yes, he worded it that weirdly). One of the items in our bag was a small packet of Sweet’n’Low.

I immediately identified this item to represent how families can act sweet to one another, when they are really just being fake with one another.

…. Why did this thought come to me so immediately?

…. Why was my whole class so quick to agree with me in that sentiment?

It’s because, at some point, we all have either been fake with ourselves or had to deal with fake people in our lives, and we all have known the experience to be a bitter one!
