Sometimes it can be so frustrating to interact with people and suddenly understand why they dress the way they do, smoke cigs, and wear those blasted designer shoes, or whatever. It’s all for attention. All for someone else to observe your clothes and mannerisms to aesthetically paint a picture of your inner-most-self on your exterior cold walls for others to enjoy and marvel at. Years of a cultured society closely monitored by corporations, media, and technological advances have dictated what we think, wear and do. Certain people are just perfectly a cutout of advertising and magazines, while others try to imitate the “beaten path”.
Should you keep going on this path or change it?
Artists have always depicted the delicate play of societies’ triumphs and pitfalls. Created their own breakthrough movements and advances, grasping to stay ahead of the game. We have a deep-rooted passion do evolve and create, research and discover, plot and plunder. Discover and destroy.
Just started reading an awesome book Herbal Medicine the Natural Way to Get Well and Stay Well by Dian Dincin Buchman. According to the book plants have always been our main way of medicine. Plants are basic in most effective drugs. Most plants can only be used in their raw state. Such as in a fruit from Africa that can heal skin cancer, like WHAT. That would be so helpful. But why are we not allowed to have such access to such a plant? I can’t just waltz into Africa, somehow find that plant after extensive research, either grow it from a seed that I barter for or buy the actual fruit, then either make it into a paste and bring it back through customs, or hope shipping the fruit would work. Mass producing said plant through chemical reproduction is dangerous, and by Dr. Stecher’s findings dangerous and unsuccessful. Willow bark is nature’s greater anti-flammatory plants, and was soon duplicated by a German scientist who broke down the chemical code by using the spirea plant family instead of willow bark which resulted in our most common drug found in our medicine cabinets, aspirin. Kinda scary right? Most of our common drugs ARE artificially based while being derived from nature.
Rebalance your body and restore your native energy levels.
Another book I have been interested in recently is called The Alphabet Versus the Goddess by Leonard Shlain. “Fear of death lies behind another trait peculiar to humans-guilt.” Shlain, 30. Early Paleolithic sites revealed through sculpture that females were divine mother figures and inextricably associated with death, as all things that die return to life through the agency of the female. The earth is both womb and tomb.
Going back to Herbal Medicine the Natural Way, comfrey is the best age-old secret according to the wonders of Indian medicine. It can be used in ointment and comfrey tincture.
