Humankind has not woven the web of life, we are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together, all things connect.
Some good advice...
1. Treat the Earth and all that dwells thereon with respect.
2. Remain close to the Great Spirit.
3. Show great respect to your fellow beings.
4. Work together for the benefit of all mankind.
5. Give assistance and kindness wherever needed.
6. Do what you know to be right.
7. Look after the well-being of mind and body.
8. Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good.
9. Be truthful and honest at all times.
10. Take full responsibility for your actions.
-Chief Seattle, 1854
To awaken, to feel healthy, to have a conscious relationship with mind, body & soul...to know oneself ?
One element of the Brave's philosophy is the idea that human beings possibly have the potential to reach beyond the three dimensions and five senses experienced day to day, that a different perception of reality may arise if dormant areas of the brain become active and this type of awareness, as well as the advancement of human health and conscioussness in general, is blighted by the modern, western geopolitical climate in which we live, effectively alienating us from the true nature of reality.
We also believe that to make the most of our minds and bodies using ancient wisdom, natural and highly nutritious ingredients is to enable greater health through a more grass roots and informed experience of the Earth's resources.
If the body contains trillions of cells that reproduce every second and needs healthy membranes and neurotransmitters for the endocrine, nervous and immune systems to fully function, surely then with the aid of high quality nutrition the body will be able to maximise its resources and work as nature intended, helping us towards our full potential.
"We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
I remember the irrelevance of Left and Right political parties dawning on me as a child and later, in adulthood my thoughts confirmed this, watching the same puppets playing the same game, election upon election, decade upon decade, as we purr for the decadent veil to be lifted. Time after time we read about deliberate mis-information and Government cover ups, yet the media tells us it’s all OK and that 'they' are doing the right thing (on behalf of who?), nothing can go wrong this time etc. etc. As the number of people suffering from ailments, depression and psychological disorders keeps increasing, it’s time to question the clever marketing and ask, are we not hypnotized and hoodwinked into eating the amount of refined, processed and nutritiously dead food that we buy? Is it not time to connect the dots between the negative things happening on this planet, between politics and corporations, the products we buy, the food we consume and the ingredients in the food we consume?
Toxins accumulate in the body, many products contain them, yet too many consumers are blissfully unaware, many think it’s OK to drink aspartame, eat processed wheat, sugar and nutrient drained table salt as part of a healthy diet (ever wondered why overweight people drink diet drinks?).
As our life expectancy and ease of life has increased you can pay as much as you want for wrinkle busting creams and lotions in ever smaller and sleekly designed tubs and if you are concerned about your looks you might be more concerned about the ingredients on the back- Parabens, Nitrosamines, BHT, Triethanolamine, Phenylenediamine? Carcinogenic endocrine disruptors, it doesn’t sound like Peppermint and Lavender to me!
Let us then not accept the paradigm of our being as submissive slaves to corporations and the media, boarding the post human train. Let us dance to our own drum, louder than before, for history is written by the conquerors and we are born, without choice into debt, our health care system acts as a drug pusher for the pharmaceutical industry, who make no money out of healthy people and our schools offer rhetoric for those who obey and for those that don’t, the problem must be clinically diagnosed and the subject tranquillized with drugs.
In a world where it is possible that Justin Bieber will one day run for president and logic goes out the window in favour of corruption, lets strip away the mess and hark back to times when we had to rely on our intellect, let us define our own reality, our own way of life, not the one prescribed to us.
Nature's finest ingredients are available from the cornucopia that exists outside our windows. More and more people have tried or heard about the wonders of so called super foods but are confused about how to ingest them and with what, subsequently disliking the taste and giving up, only to buy some poor quality supplements from a poor quality supplier.
So we had a thought and with the waves of synchronicity we put all the good stuff together, left out all the lies, fillers and talismanic words and then got on with living our lives.
There’s work to be done.
