Having recently done some research on health after some unforeseen circumstances, and after finding some noteworthy quotes in some books about optimal health, I thought it prudent to share the quotes I have collated overtime.

Most quotes are directly related to health, while others could be applied indirectly.

“Natural Forces within us are the true healers of disease.”
– Hippocrates

“Doctors give drugs of which they know little, into bodies, of which they know less, for diseases of which they know nothing at all.”

The Foundation Of Possibilities & Solutions

TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
June 19, 2016

Just had recent conversations with a few people via a few different modalities, and saw some other particular musings by some folks that made me ruminate about what makes us do what we do as individuals.

The subject matter/common theme of these posts was that of imagination.

To start of, am quite thankful that there have been many people pushing me to carry on the journey that’s been placed before me.  This has taken shape in a variety of forms.

One of the biggest drivers behind me doing this new blog is the work of Jon Rappoport.

Rappoport is an investigative journalist and researcher that does a lot of rather incisive work in exposing many issues that plague society as a whole.  Most importantly however, he has made it his personal mission to elucidate how important imagination is to the individual.

In his book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies, Rappoport sums up what has made these societies extremely powerful in more ways than most can fathom, and this is the tradition of imagination.  When used by these societies/institutions, this tool has been used deviously to carefully mold the current reality structure that we have that is quite detrimental in many surreptitious ways.

Rappoport attacks that notion from myriad angles and is quite right to reinforce the importance of imagination as it’s something that has been zapped from society at many junctures

This was even discussed by myself and a few folks in respect to how imagination is oft made to seem as something that only children do when nothing could be further from the truth.

Without imagination we have no poetry, no music, no ideas, no paintings, no education, absolutely nothing.  All of it couples directly to imagination. 

Imagination’s vital importance can be seen in some of the most salient quotes that have elucidated about this particular topic:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.  For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
– Albert Einstein

“Imagination should be used, not to escape reality, but to create it.”
– Collin Wilson

“The man who has no imagination has no wings.”
– Muhammad Ali

“Logic will get you from from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.”
– Albert Einstein

“Imagination decides everything.”
– Blaise Pascal

“Your Imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.”
– Albert Einstein

“Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?”
– Sun Tzu

“They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
– Edgar Allan Poe

“Imagination is the spark that ignites the fire of creativity.”
– Richard Laurence Peterson

“Conceive of it this way. Far up in the sky you have people, individuals, who are inventing the fulfillment of their most profound desires, making them fact in the world, no matter what—and way down below, miles under the earth, you have other individuals who could be doing what the sky dwellers are, but they’ve bamboozled themselves into thinking they can’t. Instead, they think they’re trapped in every little response they might have to any old stimulus that comes along. Both groups of people are creative, but they’ve channeled their imaginations and creativity in vastly different ways. Waking up may be hard to do, but you either do or you don’t.”
– Jon Rappoport, Notes for Exit From The Matrix

“Our first endeavors are purely instinctive prompting of an imagination vivid and undisciplined. As we grow older reason asserts itself and we become more and more systematic and designing. But those early [imaginative] impulses, though not immediately productive, are of the greatest moment and may shape our very destinies. Indeed, I feel now that had I understood and cultivated instead of suppressing them, I would have added substantial value to my bequest to the world. But not until I had attained manhood did I realize that I was an inventor.”
– Nikola Tesla

Even Tesla mentions how he would have acted differently in his choices had he known the importance of such an idea.

When arguably the greatest modern mind in the world mentions what he does above in the manner that he does it, one should at minimum take note of it.

What’s so important about imagination?

Its the engine of creativity.  It’s the road which leads you to the destination you desire.  It’s the key to every ordeal what we face.  Again, Einstein said: “Logic will get you from from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.”

If you can imagine anything, why not imagine a better world?  Why not imagine solutions?  Why not act on it?  Why not imagine a better path to yourself?  Why not invent the reality you wish to invent?

It all starts with you.

Its all a choice.

And the beauty of creativity is that it spawns more choices.  Which spawns more chances to be creative and use imagination, which spawns more choices which…

You get the picture.

Use the endless creative potential of your inner self – your consciousness – and gravitate to that which helps you the most in leading a new life, a better life, one that will make you truly inspired, whatever that may be.

That’s just it, imagination knows no bounds.  Everything is fair game because the possibilities are endless.

Some people hear the word imagination, and they give you a curious askance look, as if that’s something so bizarre, so outlandish, it should never be mentioned.

Others hear the word imagination, and instantly their minds  end up spawning tornadoes of creativity that go unleashing tsunamis of possibilities upon the world, leaving it a better place just by their mere actions.

Cern Scientists Find Evidence of Super-Luminal…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
January 23, 2016

Mr. J.T. found this thought-provoking article about the latest discoveries at CERN, and it’s worth passing along under the “You Tell Me’ category, because this one raises certain high octane speculations, not only physics related ones, but also those speculations on what CERN may really be up to, which latter consideration seems to provoke as much conspiracy theory as the Kennedy assassination. This latest CERN escapade conCERNs the apparent discovery of super-luminal, i.e., faster-than light particles:

CERN scientists ‘break the speed of light’

Now, as the article avers, this is bad news for Einstein and special relativity:

Antonio Ereditato, spokesman for the international group of researchers, said that measurements taken over three years showed neutrinos pumped from CERN near Geneva to Gran Sasso in Italy had arrived 60 nanoseconds quicker than light would have done.

“We have high confidence in our results. We have checked and rechecked for anything that could have distorted our measurements but we found nothing,” he said. “We now want colleagues to check them independently.”

If confirmed, the discovery would undermine Albert Einstein’s 1905 theory of special relativity, which says that the speed of light is a “cosmic constant” and that nothing in the universe can travel faster.

That assertion, which has withstood over a century of testing, is one of the key elements of the so-called Standard Model of physics, which attempts to describe the way the universe and everything in it works.

And that, indeed, is the problem, for the constancy of the velocity of light in all frames of reference is indeed one of those pillars, one is inclined to say that it’s become almost a dogma, of modern physics, as Einstein has become almost a sacrosanct name and person to physics, a name to be whispered in awe and reverence, like Darwin for biology. Upset that dogma, and the whole edifice is weakened dramatically:

Breakaway Guide To Simplifying Your Life

By: Zy Marquiez
January 17, 2016

“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.”
– Leonardo Da Vinci

“If you can’t explain it simple enough, you can’t understand it well enough.”
– Albert Einstein

———————–

Upon musing a bit about the term ‘simplicity’ it occurred to me to search for the term “Law of Simplicity”. There were many tips on simplifying everything, and countless permutations of the idea in various ways, but no actual law [that was apparent to me] that could be easily shared. If anyone finds a solid ‘simple’ [pun intended] then please share it with us, as its pertinent to the focus of this blog.

Let’s get to the core of the issue: simplicity.

Two definitions according to dictionary.com are:

“the state, quality, or an instance of being simple.”

“freedom from complexity, intricacy, or division into parts.”

Pretty straight forward, right?

For our purposes we will distil it one step further for the purposes of this blog and say: to keep things as simple and as practical as possible. Simple.

You must be asking yourself, why are we even talking about this topic? Great question.

Because depending on what point of view one uses, and in this case we’ll use a detached-macro point of view of society as a whole, then it’s pretty obvious people tend to complicate their lives way more than they should.

These complications seep into every aspect of an individual’s life, and end up taxing them in countless way.

Are people even cognizant of it? Some definitely are; however, many are not.

Here are what some incisive minds have stated about keeping things simple:

“Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity”
– Plato

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”
– Coco Chanel

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
– Confucius

“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”
– Paramahansa Yoganda

– Simplicity will stand out, while complexity will get lost in the crowd.”
– Kevin Barnett

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
– Hans Hoffman

“The greatest ideas are the simplest.”
– William Golding

– “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
– Albert Einstein

“It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.”
– Bruce Lee

Its quite noteworthy that such individuals engaged in this particular thought process. It alludes to the importance of this topic.

Keeping the above insights in mind, what are some aspects of life that people tend to complicate?

Relationships, food, health, politics, etc.

Relationships? That should be an obvious one, and one everyone can relate too. Let’s distill this in its most simplest form.

If someone – be it a lover, friend, acquaintance, etc – in a relationship treats you like trash, all the time, or heck, most of the time, then they’re probably definitely not worth your time/energy. Bam. Simple. No excuses. Once you start justifying the erroneous actions of others as righteous [for whatever] reason, or giving them excuses, when it’s obvious they just don’t truly care [if they did, they wouldn’t be treating you like crap, all the time], you’re doing yourself a world of disservice.

It doesn’t matter if they are family or not. In fact, family members in many situations get away with everything AND the kitchen sink because they are family. Remember, putting up with their bullshit is a choice. No excuses. Keep it as simple as you wish, or as complicated.

Next on the menu, food.

Food? Why food? Because eating things that are a poor excuse for food, only makes things complicated.

If you don’t believe me, look at the epidemic of diseases that’s rampant costing hundreds of thousands of lives due to many reasons, a strong one being food. Why food? Because much of food is laden with toxins such as fluoride, aspartame, GMOs, etc. Each of those by itself can cause diseases. When taken in combination, which most people do, it’s a toxic free for all and your health is on the menu.

How to simplify this? Easy. Eat the best, most healthy food that you can. Nourish your body with that which empowers it.

Health being the most vital component in life, let’s elaborate further to be more precise.

Researching Non-Genetically modified, organic, locally grown [if possible] pesticide free food is a good great start. Making sure you drink fluoride-free water is even better.

Many can attest to the wonders of having real, nutrient-dense food like our ancestors did. A great book that talks about this is The Paleo Approach by Sarah Balantyne. Coupled with that, another outstanding book to keep in mind is Gut & Psychology Syndrome, by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD. The latter book touches on the intricate complexities of the human gut system, and how that fuels disease when your microbiota has been eviscerated by processed foods.

Why is ‘going out of your way’ [as some people argue] to eat real food worth it? Because not doing it is costing millions of lives. Sugar alone, which most people have in processed foods, fuels cancer like liquors fuel parties on the weekends. It’s insane how many people don’t know the inflammatory effects of sugar. That’s only one aspect of food that causes death. There are many more ingredients beyond sugar that should be incisively contemplated.

Unfortunately, sugar has been linked to countless other diseases.

In the article, The Truth About Sugar Addiction, Dr. Mercola sheds light onto 76 different ways sugar can ruin your health.

As a wise person once said, you pay for your health now with real food, or you pay for it later with disease, money and life.

Next on the list, is health.

One might be prompted to think , ‘Didn’t we just cover health?’ From the food angle, yes. From other angles, no.

Food already dovetails quite well into health. That’s only a start. Let’s buttress the above with another point.

As said mentioned elsewhere:

If the average person spends 5-hours daily watching television, then they are probably sitting too much. Sitting too much has dire consequences for one’s health, as some of you may know.

In his article named Watching Too Much TV Linked To Early Death, Dr. Mercola elucidates best:

If you watch television for three or more hours a day, your risk of premature death is double that of someone who watches only one hour or less, according to new research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.1 The health risks of too much sedentary behavior, including too much sitting, are now widely known.” [Bold emphasis added]

If you want more information about that, please read Dr Mercola’s article cited above. It’s quite detailed and thought-provoking, if sobering.

The above information should be enough to make people contemplate deeply about the health choices they are making. Keep in mind, we’re only talking about sitting and watching TV.

Solution? Stay active. No complicated suggestions here. Just do anything that gets you moving, and bam, you’re health is better than it was if you’re remaining stagnant.

Lastly, politics.

Boy oh boy, where can’t we go here?

In interest of simplicity, let’s synthesize this to the most simplest form.

If a scoundrel politician – regardless of whatever party they are from – lies, they shouldn’t be trusted. If they are caught being bought-off by special interest, they shouldn’t be trusted. And of course, if they are caught stealing, they should not be trusted. No exceptions. What’s so hard about that?

Blind trust of those that throw y/our interests under the bus, each and every day is exactly how we got here in the first place.

When people are not held accountable, they will unleash crimes of godlike proportions. Just look at Wall Maul Street.

In a quick synopsis:

If someone treats you poorly, let them go. Eat real non-GMO organic healthy foods like our ancestors did, if not your life/health will become exponentially complicated. Quit sitting so much while watching TV & don’t trust lying crooks. Solid advice, right?

Simple.

To finalize, within the confines of this blog, ‘the law of simplicity’ will be used to denote instances where we will be making issues as simple as possible for the individual. In such a way, life will be much easier to navigate through, and things that used to be chaotic will literally crumble right before your eyes. Many have reaped these rewards. It’s time for everyone else to do so as well.

The only thing left is making the choice.

Make your life as simple as you wish, or as complicated.

The choice is yours.

“Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
– Isaac Newton

“Nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed, to be simple is to be great.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“How many undervalue the power of simplicity! But it is the real key to the heart.”
– William Wordsworth
