World famous chef Matthew Kenney speaks on how to prevent and reverse disease through a plant based diet

World famous chef Matthew Kenney says "the dinner plate is ten times more dangerous than driving a car."  He discusses the standard American diet and how it's leading us to a future filled with illness and prescription drugs which is not the best quality of life.  He proposes a plant based diet as the answer. 



 

Genius in disguise


Some idea may seem radical at first.  It may even seem crazy. This is because it falls outside of your wisdom and world view. It's not what you are used to so it's hard to accept. But in time, you just might discover that what you thought was radical and crazy actually was genius in disguise. 

Be free to be you



There comes a time in your life when you are tired of doing what others think you should do and you have the courage to do what you love and have a passion for. In your heart, you say to yourself "I really want to do this or that.",  but that voice in your head answers back "you can't do this or that" for whatever reason.  Well, that voice in your head many times is the voice of others from your past. Many times, it's the voice of fear. Fear restricts while faith liberates. Fear is a choice but so is faith. Have courage to celebrate your own unique vision and work hard to make it come to pass. When you face an obstacle, know that you will find a creative way around it as long as you are fully committed to your vision. When you are working towards what you love, it's really not work at all because you love what you do. You'll never be great at anything you don't have a passion for, at best, you will be mediocre. When you have passion for something, you will spend hours doing it and you will be energized by it.  When you find those things you really love, pursue them with all your heart. Your passion will be contagious and inspire others to pursue their passions also. The right people will also show up in your life to walk beside you in your endeavors. Living out your authentic vision allows the right people with similar interests to find you. Partnerships are born and there's power in the right partnerships. There is a multiplication factor because of synergy.

Beef farmers are giving pharmaceuticals to cows before slaughter and we all might be in danger if we eat beef

Did you know that many beef farmers are giving their cows pharmaceuticals that cause them to get fat before the slaughter so they can get more pounds per carcass and make more money? The drug. Is called "Zilmax" and our very own FDA approved it. You can bet that some of that drug stays in the meat and ends up on your table and ultimately in your body. Could this be part of the cause of so many metabolism problems or other health issues?  We will probably never know for sure as it's hard to study the effects of low levels of chemicals and the effect they have over time on the human body.  It's FDA approved it so it must be safe right?  Wrong! Think about all the recalls that they originally approved.  I don't know about you but I don't want to be an experiment. Another reason for me to eat vegetarian or vegan.

We the people have the power to choose the destiny of our country



We the people have the power to choose the destiny of our country. We as a country, as a people can vote our way into, and out of oppression and tyranny. We have the power to vote unprincipled men and women out of office and vote in honest principled men and women who honor the Constitution.  Let us never forget the morally based laws that our country was founded on and the intent of our forefathers when they set up the four branches of government as a set of "checks and balances" to prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful. Inside every human being is the ability to abuse power and absolute power corrupts. Remember, we the people have the power to protect our own streets. To provide safe communities for our families. We vote to have law enforcement to serve and protect but sometimes there is abuse here. We must not look to government to provide what we can provide for ourselves. This is true for all government.  When government gets too large and intrusive, we lose our individual freedoms.  Freedom does not mean that we can live lives without restraint though. That leads to hurting ourselves and others when we live without moral restraint.  Instead freedom means we have the capacity to decide our own future to a great degree. We can choose to work hard for what we want and become something that we are not. We can rise from the ashes and help others to do so as well. We have a voice and a vote and the power to influence others and join up with others of similar beliefs.  We have the freedom to work together to make not just our community a better place for all but also our state, nation, and world a better place for all humanity. Let us not forget the bigger picture here. When we use our freedom to become the best person that we can, developing our character, it does not just benefit us but also every other human being.  Our lives shout aloud a message for all to hear. The message that our lives speak, is directly connected to our character.  We can choose to be a guidepost or lighthouse to others.  With our lives, we can shine light in the darkness or choose to contribute to the darkness.  You have more power than you think.
