World View Revolution – Part 2

So, I am absolutely convinced that in light of what I am learning about food nutrition and health that the “ills” of so many of our pop culture tragedies; such as obesity, homosexuality, infertility, mental illnesses, chronic diseases, crime rates and addictions- that many of these things are avoidable and preventable. I don’t know to what degree these things could have been avoided but I know that due to our nutrition and so-called treatments of these ailments, and the length of time that these have been the norm for people it is unsure to me how quickly these things could be reversed.

The increase of infertility and homosexuality I think are largely due to birth control methods and lack of nutrition that effects hormones. I read a discussion on birth control and attraction on Rush Limbaugh’s website that stated a study about how men were more attracted to women not on birth control, they had men smell the shirts of women on it and women who were not on it and they found that the women who were on it were less attractive to those men. Now in light of this does it not make sense that men would find other men more attractive? But compounding this whole situation you have nutritional deficits that cause lowered hormone levels, such as the lack of appropriate fats, enzymes, synergy of whole foods, vitamins etc. do you not think that this may be a factor to consider? On top of that you get men whose hormones (or lack of) cause personality problems, aggression, hostility, addictions, among others- making them nearly unbearable to be around, causing a shift in women to look for partners they can better understand- other women. These same problems turned around creates unnatural behavior in women as well, even further compounding the problem. As a result you get a desexing of humanity that creates an almost unexplainable horror in the lives of so many. Pastors and priests who prey on the people they were called to help, little girls and boys becoming the victims of heinous crimes, mothers without natural nurturing instincts, fathers who are absent and irresponsible. Obviously sin is a huge factor in all of this and each person has the ability to choose the paths they wish to follow, but doesn’t this give rise to a new way of looking at these issues, with less judgment and more understanding? I can take a page from my own life and see how these things can certainly be true, when I take certain vitamins(B’s) my ability to handle stress well is directly improved- maybe just by the skin of my teeth but I do see a difference. Now if I were getting these vitamins synergisticly in the foods I eat with other factors such as enzymes and minerals and so on that assist the bio-availability of those nutrients to my cells would it not make an even greater difference in my health and well being? I certainly think so!

The famine of this nation is a starvation for reality and Truth, and in this culture those two things are desperately hidden from us. The reality is, this earth was given to us from God to nourish and care for us, not in man made materials and chemical compositions used to exploit us for the greed of industrial tycoons trying to make a quick buck. The Reality is we are being lied to every day from nearly every source into believing that man knows better than God and that science is wiser than His perfect creation. The reality is that we can be saved from our sin regardless of our nutrition deficits, mindsets, mistakes and habits. The reality is that these Truths when sought out can set us all free. Humanity’s first sin originated with food… maybe our repentance needs to start there, too? Could it be that the more nutritionally real our food is that maybe the more our minds and spirits would be able to understand and accept the spiritual and the unseen? Research has shown countless time that food can make you feel lethargic, unmotivated, depressed, hyper and so on. What we put in our bodies really does count so why not make it a little change here and there and slowly remove the processed and chemical and replace it with the real and the created?

Please, please read Nourishing Traditions by: Sally Fallon, This post is to provoke thought and curiosity, it is in no way meant to offend anyone. This has been in my drafts for awhile I wanted to tweak it to perfection but if I waited for that than I would likely never post it and that would defeat the whole purpose of a blog now wouldn’t it?

People

In this life one of  the most frustrating and delightful and inevitable parts of life….

people.

I have many many people in my life who fall under many categories but I find that when I really look, the people in my life become another piece of artwork in the gallery of life. It is tragic and beautiful and it is delightful. I am so glad that I have began to really see them for them, not for their actions, it is hard because it takes alot of vulnerability and alot of getting hurt, and trusting has become a word I reserve for God alone. (sorry everyone else). I include many people in my list of friends, broken people, broken people who like to act like their fixed, broken people who really are fixed, broken people who don’t care that they are broken, or don’t know or refuse to admit it or ignore it. But it is remarkable the similarities (broken) that we all have regardless of our situation in life we all have this one thing in common; we are so desperately broken.

Reproach has broken my heart, And I am full of heaviness; I looked for someone to take pity, but there was none; And for comforters, but I found none. Psa. 69:20

It is so painful to have friends who suffer daily… It is far worse to have friends who do not have a source of strength in their hurt.

The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Psa. 37:18

this is for you my brassy frined who has been beat all her life.

this is for my friend who is paralyzed

this is for my friend who tries to find comfort in a bottle

this is for my friend whose husband looked for love elsewhere for ten years of their marriage

this is for my friend who lost her home to foreclosure and her father in the same year

this is for my friend who lost her mother, her home to fire, her ability to walk

this is for my friend who cannot control anger

this is for my friend who struggles with debilitating pain

and this is for me, too.

Because being broken brings us closer to the answer…
