Why is this world (the Earth)so messed up!

Getting the most out of our potential individually is not at all easy especially if one is not very well programmed spiritually and am  addicted to various things that dulls or harms their ability to tune into  reality especially the most challenging parts of it.  Everyone who is not constantly working at improving the spiritual state they are in and the  spiritual theories they are guided by will automatically fall into the prevailing mindsets that dominate this world and are supported by traditional religions or the mass media that are very locked in in their beliefs.  Science also can fall victim to a lock in mindset.  Human being are conscious spiritual beings capable of a lot more spiritually than being harmfully controlled or limited by instinct and biological urges.  We can do so much better on this Earth spiritually and not be so abusive to ourselves and others and to the planet Earth we play such an important spiritual role on.  But we need to become a lot more mature spiritually, which is not easy to do since growing up requires a lot of growing pains and lessons that we make a really intense effort to learn.

People with polarizing overly simplistic mindsets(which is especially present in politics) who are off in perspective in opposite directions that enjoy a sort of arrogant self-righteous condemnation toward each other tend to dominate in this World, and often gain access to money to push their antiquated ideas.  The truth is never that simple and can be very challenging to figure out to a reasonable degree.  One has to work hard to be able to see and weigh all sides of an issue.  and do the hard work to figure out what will actually work in a world that now has very sophisticated technology,  that can be extremely complicated to figure out as to how to best take advantage of their positive value,  and not be harmed due to not knowing how to avoid the the problems that also can come with them.

We are all delusional to some degree, since no one has a perfect grasp of what is true.  Perfection does not exist in this world spiritually, but is not required, since we only need to have a good enough grasp of the truth to function at a reasonable level to meet the needs for the demands of the times we live in.  Now, anyone that thinks that the we are doing that well at this time when it comes to our individual and collective health and as well as the health of our planet really is deluding themselves to quite a degree,  I have found that people with delusional type mind-sets will tend to see those who have a very different but more rational mindset as the ones who are delusional, since otherwise they would have to question their beliefs and get out of their comfort zone and do the hard work to improve them.  One has to have a certain amount of humility to be able to see ones inadequacies, so that one will be able to improve.  One has to see ones inadequacies before one can improve on them.  When one gets a poor grade in school, one can then figure our what areas one need to put hard work into in order to improve.  As one progresses in any field one wants to develop more expertise in, one must be able to handle the complexities that come with it.  We can not advance very far in any field if we can not get beyond the simplistic.  As we advance in education in any field of study we eventually will face the most complexity required when it comes to the subject we choose to specialize in.  The spiritual field is no different than any other field when it come to the level of complexity required in order to become very good at it.

When we are not individually and collectively adequate enough in our spiritual programming to adequately handle really complex issue/problems of our times a lot of serious problems will result in this world.  Homelessness, for example, will result for those who do not have the capabilities to adjust to a society that demands too much of them and is not designed well enough to meet their needs.    Often those that are “differently abled” end up as homeless or with tragic lives.  Many of the great personalities in the history of our Planet have been “differently abled”.   We need to make more of an effort to utilize the special unique abilities that these people often have rather than just condemn them for not fitting in to a society that is not designed well enough to meet their needs.  We all need to get more out of ourselves even if we are lucky enough not to be homeless.  We can all do a lot more to direct our desires to live a healthier life style.  So many people are not very healthy in this World, with a food industry that markets food that acts more often act like drugs, than contributing to health.  It is not easy to get the most out of our abilities without having the spiritual programming that is good enough to help us to do the hard work to get the most out of ourselves when it comes to our own health and abilities even if we are in a more comfortable position in our society.  We will need to work really hard to get the most out of every member of our society in order to successfully get through the crises that lay ahead of us in a world that badly needs us to advance enough spiritually to enable this to happen.

I am one of the “differently abled” people who has a lot to contribute to this world that has really struggled to survive in a spiritually backward world.  My beliefs(spiritual theories) are unique since I developed them to be an improvement over those that currently dominate in this World.  New ideas, no matter how good, often have to really fight to be heard in a World that is backward spiritually.  One thing so many people do not understand is that when beliefs become popular due to how many people believe in them they gain psychic support for them.  That means they are easily attainable without a lot of work.  Inspiration that comes easily will tend just to be drawn psychically from the energy of beliefs that are already well represented in this world.  New spiritual theories(having little psychic support in this world) will always have to struggle to gain acceptance especially in a World that tends to cling to the beliefs of the past and tends to have a lot of addictive qualities in the life styles of its inhabitants.  It takes work to explore or try out new spiritual ideas as to how well they will actually work in ones life or can positively impact this world.   One has to be willing to make the effort to understand the value of something before you can experiment and find if it useful.   Rational/useful ideas will have an intuitive ring of truth to them that will reach those who have experienced enough life to appreciate their value.

Over 4 decades I developed a new spiritually focused Astrology System.  This is because I believe the physical-spiritual connection is so important in this world and provides a structure to the spiritual. The physical is what challenges and grounds our spiritual beliefs and tests how well they actually work when really tested by the resistance on the physical can provide.  This physical-spiritual connection is what connects us to our Earth and the natural world we are part of.  Native tribes often see our Earth as sacred and will have special connections to the land they are part of.  The physical-spiritual connection is what Astrology is based on, but the ancients that developed the traditional Astrology System that a lot of our public is drawn to, did not understand much about the Planets and Stars that they used to create it.  But, people tend to cling to the ideas of the past, even if they are not that good.  Something is better than nothing when a spiritual vacuum exists.  In ancient times they did not need to be as sophisticated spiritually as we need to be today, since we now have become so advanced in our technology and the scientific knowledge that come with it.  But, we  need a stronger connection spiritually with the physical world we now understand so much more about than in ancient times.  Cycles play a strong role in the spiritual and the movements of the very huge objects that are close to us  have to have a strong impact on the subtle and sensitive spiritual level of our being and the vital intuition that exists there and guides us.  Being well connected spiritually to the greater physical universe we are part of is what makes an effective Astrology system developed in a rational way so important.  The spiritual is not irrational.  We can not be guided by anything that is irrational spiritually and then behave in a sane and rational way in a physical world that demands it.

It takes work to become stronger and more sensitive spiritually.   Often people who claim to be really advance spiritually do not actually do the hard work to train their body to better connect to the spiritual.  The body, mind, and spirit needs to be developed through hard work.  One has to do the spiritual work to get healthier and more tuned in physically in order to get the most out of your unique potential.  It takes a lot of spiritual strength to get the most out of your unique abilities.  The spiritual is powered by our emotions, and these all need to be directed in a constructive/positive/healthy direction in order for us to get the most out of ourselves and contribute the most of what we have to this world.  So, I have developed really challenging meditative/spiritual techniques to develop the spiritual strength and sensitivity I needed to develop a new spiritual theory based Astrology System and to help others to also gain spiritually in a way to get the most out of the abilities they have.  I am very much a doer spiritually and demand results in the real world.  So everything I have developed has been done with and eye on positive results and the trial and error required to make this happen.

Here are my links to most of my spiritual stuff I have on the internet including my astrology system and meditative exercises.  Some of it is easier to understand.  My astrology system is a formula and will not be easy to understand.  I need people with interest in astrology that want to move to a more advanced system to explore it:

“Church of Spiritual Research and development” needed

In a world that tends to hold on too strongly to the spiritual beliefs of the past, a new approach to the spiritual is badly needed, especially when so many of it problems are rooted in the spiritual,  and in which science has advanced beyond the level of spiritual maturity required to properly deal with the problems it presents.  We need a practical type of spirituality that focuses on the world we exist in right now rather than devaluing its challenges by creating future existences that eliminate and devalue the importance of these challenges in furthering spiritual development and bringing out the most in us all spiritually.  Since the term “Religion” applies to institutions that deal with everything spiritual and is often protected to some degree from being interfered with by governmental control and interference,  we are forced to use it in order to gain the protections that come with it!  Often those who describe themselves as “spiritual” get shutout from real religious freedom because they are into psychic/spiritual abilities, astrology or certain forms of meditation.

The physical-spiritual connection is so important when it comes to bringing the spiritual more effectively into the type of realty we presently exist in.  I developed a new Spiritual Astrology System using decades of trial and error while also simultaneously improving on my meditative (spiritual training)  techniques and spiritual theories!   So I do have an extremely strong focus on spiritual research and development which was made possible by being “differently abled” as is often the case with people with the most in spiritual potential.  Here on wordpress I have so many posts dealing in more detail about myself to be explored by those who desire more details about me and my spiritual research.

I now live in Las Vegas, NV which tends to really regulate those who are different in what they are into spiritually!  Often that which is new or different scares those who have a more traditional approach!  The forces trying to maintain the spiritual status quo are often strong and can really fight against anything that challenges their spiritual mindset!  New spiritual approaches do have their risks, but not making an attempt to find ways to improve spiritually is also risky especially in the highly challenging technologically advanced world we now exist in.  Science cannot do it all, the Spiritual also plays a counterbalancing role.  Emotion and desires requires a lot spiritual maturity to be properly directed!  So many harmful addictions exist in this overly commercially focus world!  Religious freedom needs to be properly applied to those on the cutting edge spiritually.

DUALITY IS EXTREMELY VALUABLE SPIRITUALLY!

Duality is what gives us spiritual strength! My training helps me handle the challenges and deepness that comes with this duality that is so important to our reality! Without duality nothing would exist! Some people are spiritually attracted to nothingness! I try to stay clear of delusional beliefs. I am trying to do something about how backward we are spiritually in this world and the unhealthy physical and spiritual consequences that result to the individuals who exist here and to the planet as a whole. LOVE vs HATE: We would not be able to exist spiritually if we did not have strong connections with other spirits. When we are between lives our deep connection with other spirits that are incarnated in different physical worlds help us to maintain our identity while we are without a direct physical connection ourselves. Love does draw us to the special bonds required in order to be reincarnated in a new life. But hate plays a role. We would hate to not have the healthy spiritual connection we require. We would hate anything that would destroy or harm that which we need to function as we desire. If we do not hate losing something we need, then we do not truly value it. The more you hate losing something the more you value it! You love what you value, you hate that which you see as harmful to you! Contrast is not easy for some people to handle spiritually, but handling contrast is what gives one spiritual strength!

Time/reality is no illusion to those who are well tuned in spiritually!

This was written after watching a couple of panel discussions on video about some of the craziness top theoretical physicists are coming up with in regard to “time”. I tune into people of all kinds extremely well on the spiritual level, and felt most of them were being adversely affected by poor programming on the spiritual level. The good thing is they all do not all agree, and that they admit they have not proven with solid scientific evidence the truth of what they present!

We can not perform well spiritually in this world if we do not value time as indispensable to our reality! Theoretical physics may claim that time is an illusion, but that is because they discount the importance of the spiritual in underlying all of reality. Often science is affected by the spiritual theories/beliefs of the past that need to be improved on so that they will interface with reality better, so that we will be able to perform in a way that will enable us to deal with the serious issues of this complicated technological age we exist in. Anyone that does not see this world as being quite messed up spiritually at this time is not very connected to reality.

Science will come up with better theories, but first they need to become tuned in better spiritually. In the spiritual realm all is connected to quite a degree, and this connection is instant. The speed of light is very limiting when compared to the instant connections that happen spiritually! The universe has a oneness as a result of its instant spiritual connection of all parts of it! It functions as a well connected unit, not as something that takes huge quantities of time in order for one part to relate to another part. People often try to use theoretical science as a way to confirm their spiritual beliefs! But theoretical science can be quite crazy in their theories and often will not make any real sense to those who have really well trained intuition due to reality based spiritual training. Hard science can give us information about a lot of what is happening in our reality! Bur science need to be careful about moving too much into the domain that is dominated by spiritual forces that underlie all of our reality.

The spiritual is dominated by our inner being and is powered by emotions. Really intense spiritual training using the most advance and intense/difficult spiritual/meditative exercise techniques are required in order to develop intuition that help us perform very well in the very important and challenging physical reality we are part of and that can bring out the most in our spiritual capabilities! We need to advance a lot further in this world that is so backward spiritually and not allow science to go in areas it is not well suited for in order to fill the vacuum that out inadequate/impractical spiritual theories that dominate this Earth has created as compared to how advanced we have become in science and technology in recent times.

God, The Universal Spirit

My spiritual theory related to God(the universal spirit) is that God is the spirit that maintains our physical reality in away that serves  our spirits needs for its continuous existence and purpose well provided we do the work required to properly understand and utilize it.  The Universe God provides is designed very well to serve our benefit.  God is limited in God’s function and it is up to us(as individual spirits) to do the work to make the physical reality  we exist in better serve us.     God is not responsible for the spiritual state we are in or the world around us is in: we are individually and collectively!

Life is cyclic with in our current life and beyond this life into future lives.  The struggle of life is a positive thing and we do best to embrace this struggle and make the most of it rater than trying to escape from it and reality.   The more we are connected spiritually to this challenging reality we exist in the more we are connected to God.

The image of an autocratic God that condemns some people(individual spirits) to eternal torture  and others eternal pleasure is not one that helps us to function at our best spiritually in this physical reality we exist in and can not escape from.

Autocratic beliefs prefered over understanding spiritual complexity

The reason our society is so messed up spiritually is that we do not have a high level of understanding of the spiritual here.  It is so much easier to just believe things from autocratic spiritual/religious sources without questioning, than to have to do the intense thinking about which spiritual theories would work the best at focusing our attention and efforts on the serious problems(hunger/malnutrition, violence, abuse, ignorance,  etc.) that exist in this world.  I strongly believe that the spiritual theories that enable us to handle the most intense and often painful challenges of life in a positive way are the ones that will be closest to the truth.  Having extremely challenging and effective spiritual-physical training techniques is needed to build up ones ability to handle life’s challenges at their most intense.  One can not push oneself extremely hard if one is lock into spiritual  beliefs that focus ones attention away from the indispensable value of physical reality we now exist in to our spirit’s well being.  Life is cyclic and we tend to be victims of habit.  In order to improve ourselves and the world around us we must stop repeating the same cycles over and over again, but make the necessary tough spiritual changes that ensure we have better cycles in the future and by so doing also contribute to enhancing the cycles that happen on a bigger scale in the reality us!

Delusions are very prevalent in this world.  We all are deluded to some degree in that no one is going to have a complete grip on what is true.  When one does not understand the spiritual very well, one can easily mistake spiritual phenomena for physical phenomena which can contribute to mental problems and harmful delusions.  Being weak spiritually due to ineffective spiritual theories/beliefs along with the misinterpretation of reality that come with them, can lead to irrational behavior often triggered by spiritual phenomena one is unable to understand or appropriately deal with.  Not all spiritual energy or influences are positive, just like not all people one connects with are a positive influence on you spiritually.  Often people who are psychic(extra sensitive in some way spiritually)will hear voices or have visions.  These voices or visions can get people into trouble if they are not positive in nature and they do not clearly understand their spiritual(non-material)nature!  Most people when they have dreams in their sleep do not mistake these dreams for things they experience in their waking reality.  Dreams are very spiritual in nature.  For people who do not clearly recognize the difference between the dream/spiritual consciousness and waking physical consciousness, reality can be misread with harmful consequences resulting in their lives.

People with mental illness are extremes, but we all are deluded to some degree in how well we read the reality we exist in and separate clearly that which is spiritual in nature from that which is physical.  Often people with strong delusions have an arrogant disregard for the value of the physical side of reality they live in right now, and the need to listen to others that have a more reliable grip on what is happening in it.  Being too locked inside oneself and not getting enough outside feedback is a good way to become delusional about the reality one exists in.  One can not take the physical reality we exist in lightly or those that can help one to get a better grip on it.  Having an overly permissive view of reality can lead to one to not being critical enough as to what is real and what is not as to what is really happening in ones life and what is happening in the very important bigger world around you.

A really clear separation does not always occur between the spiritual and the physical, since spiritual phenomena can be visual at times and appear to be physical.  Those who are well tuned in spiritually as a result of their training and the spiritual theories they accept will sense the difference.  Those are out of balance spiritually will tend to believe things  about the physical world around them without enough serious proof of their validity.  People often get a distorted view of reality that overly demonizes certain sections of our society and is too ready to think the worst of them.  Conspiracy theories are always being created by unreliable sources and then get a life of themselves on the spiritual level.  Beliefs do tend to manifest themselves on the spiritual level and often can be intoxicating to those who are susceptible to them due to their lack of proper spiritual attunement/balance.

All kinds of strange beliefs exist that can distract one from this challenging physical reality we exist in here as spirits.  All beliefs that discredit our responsibility for the state our physical world is in, and that it is up to us to work hard to improve the condition it is in, will tend to disconnect us from reality and thus are harmful.  A belief in aliens that come in UFO’s and have impacted our world positively in the past or will so in the future is one of these distracting beliefs that harm our ability to value and get the most out of ourselves so we can fix the serious problems that exist in this world.  People can readily misinterpret visual spiritual phenomena in a way to support what they really desire to believe..  Human being have done amazing things in the past and can do really amazing things in the future with out the aid of aliens coming on UFO’s from places beyond this Earth.   Most spirits may have had past lives on places other than this Earth, but once they are biologically part of this Earth through birth here, they are no longer alien!

This challenging physical reality we now exist in is where we prove how good our spiritual beliefs and techniques really are.  We prove our spiritual capabilities by how well we are able to contribute what we have of value to making this challenging physical world we exist in a better(more healthy)place to exist in.  How well we perform in this life will directly transfer to how well we are able to perform in the challenging lives we have in the future.

Spirits that connect with us and give us guidance

My belief in the vital/indispensable connection of the physical and the spiritual, and the importance of having the parts of the brain that deals with the spiritual very well trained through physical-spiritual exercises affects what I believe, and in turn help me to value these extremely rough&challenging exercises enough to put myself through them.

We attract kindred spirits(who are between lives)our way that will attach themselves to us, until they find a new body that fills their need in their next life. A spirit requires the part of the brain that deals with the spiritual to enable it to function(operating on the proper level that it needs to function at). When incarnated in the type of body with the proper brain for its spiritual requirements, the spirit is able to do a lot on its own in the physical world it is part of and has responsibilities toward. But, when the body loses its ability to support the spirit’s needs(through its spiritual brain function), it must abandon the body(let it die) and find another way to gain the connection with the physical machinery(brain function)to keep operating spiritually. Since a new body to meet its needs will not be immediately available, the spirit will temporarily find a kindred spirit to attach to that will share the needed brain function with them required to maintain their continued existence. In return this spirit can give one guidance, but will not be able to take over the body that one has obtained ownership/command of through growing up with it and developing it.

There exists spirits that are kept in existence by being fed by the power of beliefs of groups of like believers. These spirits will be connected to a number of spirits with brains with advanced enough spiritual function to support them. God is the necessary universal spirit that keeps our physical reality functioning well and is automatically supported by the spiritual parts of the brains of all biological bodies that have such function. My beliefs have been developed as a result of deep well reasoned spiritual thinking helped with the spiritual strength and awareness that my intense physical-spiritual training has provided me with.

Nobody has a perfect spiritual connection with God, and will connect with God and other spirits on the level they are capable of based on their spiritual development.  So the guidance one gets will only be as good as what our spiritual development enables.  Our intuition will never be perfect, but can be improved with proper training and then help us to connect with better spiritual guidance from what ever spiritual source we are able to make a connection with.

Our ability to understand and connect to the physical reality we exist in enables us to advance further spiritually

In the modern age we understand the physical reality(as a result of hard science) we exist in a lot more than in the past.  This can give us quite an advantage when it comes to our ability to advance further in the spiritual area.  In the past, a lot of mythology existed that filled the void that existed due to the lack of hard knowledge about the world we existed in.  The religions(spiritual beliefs)of those times were very much limited by this lack of understanding of the physical world and the mythology  that existed then as a result.  Mythology can have an addicted affect and be hard to wean oneself from, since that which is programmed deeply within ones being is very difficult to alter!   Even today, people who see themselves as spiritual will often choose to disregard the value of credible scientists and buy into crazy/wild beliefs about the past or even the present that do not have enough hard facts to back them up.  Some people do not believe a man landed on the moon!  Others think past civilizations were as advanced as our present one!  Some people even believe aliens from outer space have had a lot of impact on our recent technological  advancements!  Often people will choose to quickly believe extreme(not very well researched) views about this reality  from those that are not accepted by the body of the most credible hard scientists.

Often religious/spiritual people will devalue the spiritual importance of the physical world they now exist in and depend on.  People who devalue the importance of the physical, not only will have trouble developing the will power to get their physical body in a really fit/health state with the improved brain function(including the spiritual/emotional parts of the brain), but also will have trouble having enough will power to take on and find ways to better deal with the very serious problems that exist on this Earth!  This physical world provide the necessary resistance to challenge us spiritually, and to test and develop our spiritual strength and awareness.  The physical world functions in a rational way,  and demands people to develop a higher degree of sanity in order to better understand it and function in it.

Mythology can very much infer with being logical/rational and sane.    It is true that the images we create and project spiritual can come alive and have a lot of spiritual impact.  These spiritual  images can become strong enough to be seen and even show up on film, but they are still spiritual manifestations, not physical ones and one has to be careful  to see them for what they really are. Often religions generate a lot of images(through the power of belief) that help to guide and inspire them spiritually to living a better life.  The spiritual is not concrete, so we must do the best we can to understand it using what images function the best when challenged by a logical physical world that we must contend with in order to grow further spiritually.

Some people will put animals and their pets on the same level spiritually as their fellow humans.  But, animals can not understand hard science enough to use it to help them function on a higher spiritual level.  But, that is not a problem for those that do not see the extra value of the human brain has in its capability to understand the physical world around them and affect it.  Even humans vary a lot in their ability to spiritually connect to the physical reality they exist in on a more advanced intellectual level.  Some people tend to dismiss the importance of the human mind spiritually and its ability to use reason to improve how one is able to functions spiritual.  But, without our ability to reason things out a lot better than animals can, the distance between us an animals become a lot less significant spiritually.  We need to have more of our spiritual focus on our fellow human beings and the serious problems that they face and create in this world.  We need to be careful about overly focusing on animals spiritually.  It is hard to connect with humans since they are very complicated,  but we must become better at this, if we are to improve on the spiritual state this world is in.

When it comes to developing better spiritual beliefs which are required in order to become a lot more developed and aware spiritually, only humans(on this planet)can do this, and then test them as to how well they help one to perform in this challenging resistant physical world we exist in.  Only humans can use really advanced meditative/spiritual-physical techniques/exercises to improve their physical/spiritual(emotional) health and will power.  Only humans can put themselves through extremely challenging physical-spiritual training that can test how well their beliefs function in helping one handle and perform when put in extremely challenging physical/spiritual states.  Physical-spiritual training helps one to better handle the toughest  physical-spiritual challenges life can present to us and to make sure one has beliefs that are good enough to help one handle these challenges.   Diet and physical exercise(especially cardiovascular) are also important as part of a physical-spiritual training program.   When one is really strong and aware spiritually, one will be well tuned into ones body and able to better do that which is  best for its physical and spiritual well being.  One proves how capable one is spiritually by how effective one can function in this very challenging physical world which is so full of serious/challenging problems that need to be better addressed.

Working at overcoming the resistant spiritual energy on this planet to better(more practical) spiritual beliefs!

I weighted 122.5(5’10’ tall) after snacking and doing my extremely difficult dumbbell swing exercise routine this morning, and 122 without snacking and  before doing my 2 mile run routine yesterday.  I feel I will be reaching a new set point weight wise soon.  I do not diet in a way to tune me out to my body and do feel intensely the affects(including hunger) on it of my really challenging diet and exercise routine.   I am really developing the ascetic body type required to be able to be extremely effective in the spiritual area.  We live in the atomic age where often one has to be able to do things with very little margin for error in order to gain the positive results required in the highly technologically/scientifically advanced we now live in.  That is how I approach  the spiritual and feel we need to have this spiritual approach in order to better handle the problems of this world  we currently  live in.

I am really pushing my limits in my spiritual-physical training in order to imprint my astrology system(and the spiritual beliefs that come with it) so strongly into myself,  that it will not be able to be adversely affected by the spiritual beliefs that now dominate this planet and tend to be accepted without a lot of questioning or really deep rational/practical thought.   Often people who have a higher degree of sanity than others can see things others are unable to see and what is possible as a result.  Those who conform to the spiritual status quo will often feel they are saner than those who challenge it even when those who challenge it are doing so as a result of having better connection with reality and the greater awareness that comes with this.  I need to break through the resistant spiritual energy that exists on this planet that make it hard for better spiritual beliefs to be accepted here.  This is not easy to do on the planet Earth!

For more details on my physical-spiritual training program and spiritual beliefs read some of my previous blog posts.

5/6/2016: When this blog post was published I was pushing the edge when it came to a calorie restricted diet.  I had to be very careful and precise in order to do this safely.  It was very good training at the time and helped me improve on my spiritual insights and training.  It also helped me to make a very dramatic move/change in my life.  I have  gone off the calorie restriction part of this diet to a considerable degree since then and gained weight.  My spiritual training has improved even further.  My astrology system has gotten to a good place.  But really pushing the edge safely on a calorie restricted diet did help me get where I needed to be.  It is not easy to go where no one on this Earth has gone before which is what a spiritual pioneer has to do.  People often believe being a spiritual pioneer is not possible, so one has to be super strong spiritually to bring more advanced spiritual ideas and techniques to a world that is very resistant to change in this area.

 

Stretches, dumbbell warmup & 6 minutes non-stop 2-hand overhead behind back dumbbells swings

After my fall the night before Easter(APR 1 ,2018) in which I dislocated my right shoulder I could no longer do this dumbbell swing exercise, but developed a new exercise to replace it!  Here is a video of it which I am now(6/9/18) doing for 3 nonstop minutes:

 

WARNING:  All the intense meditative/physical exercises I do require a body that is conditioned and able to do them safely.  They require a period of adjustment as one needs to gradually get use to them as to their frequency, intensity, and duration.  Although my spiritual focus requires I try to inspire people to do what it takes to improve their physical and spiritual well being,  I am not a medical/health-care professional.   Important: Before starting any new diet and exercise program please check with your doctor and clear any exercise and/or diet changes with them before beginning.  Do this exercise at your own risk and do them carefully.  Better to start out slow and gradually get use to them.   The intense type training I am able to do came as a result of decades of intense physical-spiritual training.   The most intense type spiritual-physical exercises are for people who have an extreme spiritual focus in their lives that enable them to handle the years of training required,  along with spiritual sensitivity and body awareness needed to prevent them from hurting themselves.

I eat something to fuel my dumbbell swing exercise routine, and then about 2-4 hours later drink some water  and started exercising.   I first do  careful stretching movements holding them very briefly covering all muscles for about 4 minutes, then some light weightlifting(warmed up using 20 lb dumbbell and arms for about 2 minutes doing all types of movements a few times in standing position), then do 6 minutes of nonstop dumbbell swings,  and 4 minutes more of stretching.  I do as many 2-handed overhead modified(bending elbows when lifting dumbbell overhead, deep squat, and extended to behind head) 20 lb dumbbell swings as I can do in a total of 6 minutes of nonstop cardio! I do these with my eyes closed at times while breathing in and out 24 to 27 times  with each dumbbell swing.  I use to breath in out a lot less in the past, but kept increasing the breathing as I was able to, since it increased the spiritual/physical difficulty of doing them.  The extra breathing makes the exercise more meditative!    I do try to tune into what ever emotions I can pick up or feel while doing this exercise or tune out any distractions I hear from my surroundings..    I try to put myself in the most intense and difficult physical/spiritual state while being really careful not to overdo it and hurt myself.

I have carefully worked up to this dumbbell swing routine for a period of five years as of October 2017..  I was in pretty good shape before I got started.  So it took me quite a while to condition myself to where I am at right now.   So,it takes quite a bit of time to get really good at this exercise!  Beginners can actually start without a dumbbell and gradually get the body use to handling dumbbells while starting with lights ones and working up to heavier ones!  They can adjust their technique to what is comfortable for them. This upper body cardio/meditative exercise with its head and neck movements I feel helps the circulation to the brain improve and thus allows one to push ones limits as to what states the body and mind can handle both physically and spiritually!

I have a blog post on the history of the dumbbell swing:    https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/history-of-my-overhead-2-handed-modified20-lb-dumbbell-swing-exercise/

The swing as I do it works real well for me! That is why my body can handle it  4 days a week. I am really strongly in tune with my body due to all the meditative training I put it through.  Beginners  can actually start without a dumbbell and gradually get the body use to handling a heavier dumbbell. They can adjust their technique to what is comfortable for them. This upper body cardio exercise with its head and neck movements I feel helps the circulation to the brain improve and allows one to really push ones limits as to what difficult states the body and mind can handle both physically and spiritually.  One can gradually increase the breathing rate as times go on and you are able to with reasonable effort.  The breathing does increase the spiritual component to this exercise and increase its difficulty.  I did last up to 30 minutes nonstop in the past doing it when I was breathing a lot less times in and out per swing.
