Food is sacred.

Throughout most of the course of human evolution, having enough food was the defining difference between life and death.

It was elemental as air, water, and soil.

Yet now, in many societies of the world where food is plentiful, we exploit it.

We play with it.

We dress it up.

We horde it.

We sell commericials with it.

We process it to the point where it becomes toxic to us over prolonged periods of time.

We even consider it an “art form”.

And with over 1 billion of our fellow human beings facing starvation every day, we gorge on it.

Ironically, in societies where food is plentiful, the poorest people on average are the most obese people.

This ongoing debasement of food represents one of the main ways people have distanced themselves from Nature, their less fortunate fellow humanity around the world, and the control of their our own health.

How did this happen?

For the most part, our primal instincts have and continue to be cleverly manipulated.


Awaken and respect the sacredness of food again. Real food.


Mature humans are the only mammals on Earth that willingly delay sleep.

Think about that for a second.

And other mammals are awake only to feed, eliminate waste, reproduce, and if they feel the need to defend themselves.

The rest of their life is a peaceful slumber.

I know we are busy, but it we behaved more like our fellow mammals and less like machines, it is well documented that we would live significantly happier and healthier lives.

So why don’t we?

Because basically, in “advanced” societies such as ours, we have been conditioned to accept working the majority of our life away.

With little to no regard for the natural circadian rhythms that our minds and bodies crave to be in harmony with.

The ever increasing speed of business – just can’t wait.

Neither can our bills.

Industrialized societies right now have such high numbers of sleep deprivation, that what is “abnormal” sleepiness in now considered “normal”.

Starbuck$ knows.

Meanwhile, any doctor will tell you that sleep is every bit as critical to your over-all health as diet and exercise – arguably more so. Yet in the fast-paced 24/7 connected culture we live in…..a lack of sleep has almost become a “badge of honor”.

Has sleep, become for wimps?

And this weekend, thanks to self-serving financial decisions by the ruling elite over the years, we will all add yet ANOTHER hour of sleep loss to our ever mounting sleep deficits, due to the artificial scam known as “Daylight Savings Time”.

POOF. Just like that.

Another hour of sleep GONE.


So fight back.

Why not start by shutting off the Internet right now.

Then, begin to manage the rest of your life so you can grab more precious, health-enhancing ZZZZZZ’s.

SLEEP: it’s a beautiful thing.


“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”  Ellen Goodman American journalist

 “A house is just a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff.”            – George Carlin (1937-2008)

The primary function of any house is “shelter”.

In essence, a place to “get out of the weather”.

Over time, this elemental function has become distorted beyond recognition for so many of us.

And now… many of us are not only enslaved by our own shelter, but trapped in it.


Maybe it’s time to respect the sacred nature of SHELTER again.
