Rage burning in you

I know the sensation only too well.

That intense frustration about many things at the same time. Like the meanness and sheer stupidity of people. And one’s own inability to lift soul and body above the floating line. Or irritation from the lies and pomposity spread by smart asses on the upper echelons.

Frustration, of course, is also about private things, private and painful.

When rage gets hold of your nervous system, you could just hit, throw, or break. It is physically unbearable, and you are well aware of how pointless it is. But you can’t help it.

If rage persists, and social constraints or kindness towards people around prevent you from expressing it through some kind of violence, you may turn to drink, drugs, or the medical system, meaning other drugs.

Beware of being too smart in controlling your behaviour and shuffling the rage deep inside. You may not kick any door or hit anyone or get drunk, but you might well be laying the nest for a nasty health problem. Somehow or other negative energy has to work its way through.

You need to stop negative energy upstream.

Energy is all over the universe, and we on our little planet are just clusters of structured energy and consciousness. Why is it that our consciousness has to turn sour now and again instead of being always nice and steady? Nobody knows for sure. Some believe it has to do with demonic forces. Not really my alley, but I might be wrong.

With spiritual practice, you can actually succeed in calming down. From calming down, you can slide into meditation and after a while the nervous system begins to relax and physical sensations become more pleasurable again.

In a serene state of consciousness, you get a sense of the bigger picture, you see your agitated incarnated self with compassion, and you appreciate that life down here is only an experience.

Your eternal higher self consoles you with humour and kindness. Things, after all, are not so bad. And “reality” is mainly a question of perception.

Fear not, go and ride your bike.

Essilor shines in the market

Essilor is the world leader of corrective lenses.

This morning its share price was up 26% since the beginning of the year, after a great performance in 2011. In ten years it went up threefold. Not bad, eh.

Essilor’s business may appear relatively innocent compared to that of, say, Big Pharma or the agro-food sector.

And it certainly is much less harmful than corrective eye surgery.

But the fact is that it thrives on people becoming ever more stressed and anxious.


This was explained in some detail in a previous post: https://leoforesta.com/2012/02/11/medical-technology-is-great-for-gdp/

In short, the more deep seated fear, the more tension in the muscles controlling eye globes, the more pronounced the resulting optical faults.

Essilor’s success looks like a reflection of humanity’s profound unease.

Therefore, no regret at all about not being one of their “happy” shareholders (many of whom wear glasses or contact lenses themselves).

Fear not, and go for natural restoration of vision.

When life in the soil gets hurt

Around 80% of the earth’s biomass is the in soil, out of our sight.

It’s full of life and frantic activity down there. Armies of worms, mites, and other subterranean creatures do a tremendous job processing organic residues, which leads to the formation of humus.

Humus is the most complex molecule on earth; associated to clay it creates rich fertile soils. Which is what made this planet so beautiful.

A few thousand years ago, mankind began to interfere with nature: people got the idea that soils should be ploughed for cultivation and that only one sort of plant at the time should be grown on a given plot of land.

This procedure was not too good for the soils’ wild life, but the beasts mostly managed to survive.

Then mankind invented intensive chemistry-based agriculture. Soils not only had to be cut open and turned upside down through ploughing; they would also be covered with artificial fertilizers and pesticides.

The latter are harmful to the multitude of beasts in the soil. A lot of them die, and the whole biology, chemistry and physical cohesion of the soil change radically.

The most dramatic consequence is that plants cultivated on highly degraded soils are much poorer in nutrients.

As a result, people (and animals) fed on produce from intensive agriculture suffer from deficiencies, even when eating theoretically balanced diets. In addition, they ingest traces of harmful fertilizers and pesticides.

This combination of nutrient deficiency and absorption of harmful substances leads to weaker body resistance and lower vital energy, creating an ideal terrain for the development of diseases.

Soil degradation has another major effect: lower permeability, leading to flooding, itself provoking erosion. In hot climates, when the upper layers are gone, desertification can start.

If you walk near a field (unless it is cultivated organically; true organic that is), you will notice how few insects there are hovering over the plants. If you plunge your hand in the soil, you will feel how hard it is; it will disintegrate through your fingers, like little bits of old concrete. And you will not find worms.

If you let your intuitive sensor function, you will perceive no vibrations from the field, quite unlike the joyous concert of positive vibes that you would pick up in a healthy forest. Your intuition simply confirms what honest science tells us: most agricultural land is dead, poisonous, and makes people and animals ill.

Two genial agronomists, Claude and Lydia Bourguignon, have studied all this in detail. And they are developing practical methods to gradually restore the quality of soils.

Here is their website: http://www.lams-21.com/artc/Homepage/1/en/

Fear not, plunge your hands in the soil.



Medical technology is great for GDP

Contact lenses, hip replacement, pace makers, open heart surgery, IVF… are all marvels of modern technology.

We can’t help but admire the technical prouesses that they imply.

But couldn’t their aims be reached by other means, possibly more natural, less painful, with fewer or no side effects, and cheaper?

Take contact lenses for example.

They may seem a great help for short sighted people. They do enable to see with more accuracy, but at the cost of a significant intrusion: the eye surface is definitely not meant to be covered by a layer of glass or plastic.

And lenses do not restore natural vision.

According to conventional ophthalmologists, restoring natural vision is impossible. Once you are short sighted, there is nothing else to do than wearing glasses or contact lenses, or having the shape of your eye corrected by surgery.

But what exactly is short sightedness? And why does one become short sighted in the first place?

The eye is a globe whose movements are commanded by very powerful muscles.

These, like other muscles in the body, are subject to abnormal tensions when the mind experiences certain emotions.

When particular states of mind persist, eye muscles become permanently tense, causing the eye shape to be altered, with the optical consequence of short or long sightedness, and/or astigmatism.

Clear characteristics in the psychological profiles of short sighted and long sighted people are well documented.

For instance, underlying fear and anxiety are always strongly present in the minds of short sighted individuals.

One doesn’t usually become short sighted before a certain age, say eight or nine, the time for basic fear and anxiety to get in and take root.

What it is not generally known is that some people, through fundamental changes in their outlook on life, manage to improve their vision significantly, sometimes back to sharp accuracy.

This always involves deep relaxation and reaching some state of “let go” of fear.

Conventional ophthalmologists are usually not interested in the deep seated psychological problems of their patients.

They haven’t been trained to deal with them. Their extended knowledge concerns the physiology of the eye, and all the possible forms of eye diseases.

Their focus is on the eye, not the person.

In contrast, when you follow the path of improving your vision naturally, you concentrate on your mind, and even on your soul.

You learn to relax, to meditate, to accept life with more confidence, to experience what happens as fascinating events in the bigger picture of universal consciousness.

When you were a child, fear and other emotions settled in you and caused different things in your body, including tensions in eye muscles, resulting in the symptom of short sightedness.

Once you realise that connections between soul, mind and body are the key to all, you regain your freedom.

Nothing is irreversible. Life is movement, flow and changes. If parts of your body are malfunctioning, there is always a subtle reason.

Always very deep in your fundamental outlook on existence: fear, ego, distrust, impatience, rejection, bitterness, …

These induce subtle messages in the energy/consciousness fields of all your cells, with myriads of physical consequences, invisible and undetectable until they consolidate into manifest symptoms.

In the particular case of short sightedness, changing one’s mental dynamics towards trust, acceptance, patience, etc., has two kinds of effects.

It induces improvements of visual accuracy, often first only during occasional brief spells of a few seconds or minutes: “flashes of clear vision”,  indescribable bliss to whoever has been short sighted for many years.

It also brings a much enhanced comfort of vision: pleasurable sensations in the eye and around, fewer headaches and facial pains. The energy starts flowing again in your eyes. And your thinking becomes clearer, less rigid, less anxious.

You may still need your glasses for driving and other activities requiring accuracy, but most of the time you can live happily without them, enjoying long hours without the tension always present with lenses on.

As for contact lenses, only use them very exceptionally, when you need lenses and absolutely do not whish to wear glasses.

Once you start wearing glasses and contact lenses for much reduced periods of time, you obviously need to buy fewer of them.

Which is great for you, but not so good for business, and not so good for GDP.

Here we are: the money motive, omnipresent in every aspect of life, is especially strong in things medical.

It is interesting to note that Essilor, the number one multinational in contact lenses and glasses, was one of the few companies whose share price improved significantly in 2011 while most of the market booked a strong decline.

It is also interesting to notice that kids tend to wear glasses at a much younger age than was the case a few decades ago.

Could it be that feelings of fear, lack of trust, …etc develop earlier in today’s society which is distinctly child unfriendly.

But for ophthalmologists it seems so much easier not to ask too many questions or to dig too deep. Just prescribe the specs.

Anyway, there are so many trendy coloured frames nowadays that good mothers almost find it a pleasure to buy them for the little darling.

Which is jolly good for business, share price and GDP. Why is it that we see young kids with fun glasses in adverts, films,…etc.

Everything is connected. Nothing happens without a reason.

It is pretty obvious that we could develop a similar line of argument for many other medical conditions and brilliant technologies that are supposed to deal with them.

We focused here on short sightedness because it is often (wrongly) not considered so serious and therefore would not raise the same controversies as more life threatening diseases.

But the gist of the matter is this: there are two approaches to health, which are directly related to two opposing views of the universe.

One is mechanistic, materialist and great for big business, and the other is holistic, subtle, and great for free souls.

Finally, note that medical expenses represent now more than 10% of GDP in several developed economies, fast approaching 20% in the US.

Given the state of public finances, it is glaringly obvious that the system will increasingly focus on a very restricted fraction of population: the rich (generally oldish), and on a few mass public actions particularly remunerative for big business, like vaccination campaigns.

Fear not, be free and keep well.

Healthy living while the world is sick

Leading a healthy life in spite of today’s increasing pollutions and stress is a real challenge.

In developed countries, authorities offer recommendations such as eating less meat and more fruits and vegetables, practising sport, avoiding tobacco and drugs, reducing intakes of coffee and alcohol.

On the face of it, all this sounds fine.

In fact, it is incomplete, superficial and misses the essential.

Take fruits and vegetables. Eating more of them is a good idea, but only if they are fresh, seasonal, natural (not genetically manipulated) and unadulterated by fertilisers, pesticides, artificial radiation or transportation.

But most people in developed countries buy their fruits and vegetables from large scale retail, whose products are generally far from meeting the basic requirements just highlighted.

As for meat, eating modest quantities is probably quite healthy. But again, provided it is natural and unadulterated.

And provided animals have been treated well and killed with care and respect. The latter is as much a health issue as an ethical one.

In fact the two are inseparable. Animals that have been tortured in large intensive installations are not only full of toxins and drugs, but their cells carry negative vibrations which cause invisible but real harm to whoever eats them.

Practising sports: always a good idea? Not necessarily.

What the body and the mind (and the soul) need is regular exercise. Natural exercise, such as walking or swimming, is perfect if done in moderation, taking into account one’s constitution, condition and age.

But exhausting energy in competitive sports whose aim is by definition to go over the limit cannot be good, except possibly for exceptional individuals. And even for them?

Avoiding drugs. Of course it’s a good idea, but not just illegal drugs: also the myriads of legal drugs, including vaccines, produced by pharmaceutical companies and so liberally prescribed by conventional doctors.

By the way, bear in mind that companies spend tens of thousands of dollars per doctor in marketing and promotion, pay armies of full time lobbyists and finance university departments and research institutes.

Don’t expect any objectivity from the system concerning benefits and collateral damages of pharmaceutical products.

And now other recommendations that should be made and almost never are.

Avoid using cell phones, wifi’s and micro wave ovens. Try and not watch TV. Limit time spent on computers.

Make sure your home (and work place) is healthy. Not only in terms of basic hygiene and safety, but also in the more subtle terms of harmony: shape of rooms, light, colours, orientation, placing of furniture…etc.

In all your activities, pay heed to natural daily and seasonal cycles of energy attached to your constitution.

Know yourself and stay in touch with oneness. Practice meditation. Be genuinely self confident and mute your ego.

Avoid check-ups and tests; most of them cause unnecessary anxiety and are done primarily to find new patients for the medical industry.

Healthy living is infinitely more than a series of robotic dos, don’ts, and tests.

In the holistic world view, healthy living is not so much trying to avoid diseases and keeping smug, comfortable and self centred while the world is being destroyed.

It is respecting your body/mind/soul to accomplish your divine mission in this brief incarnation.

And, whoever you are, your divine mission is particularly important in our time of crisis.

Keep radiating positive loving thoughts and emotions, and your body/mind/soul will resist increasing pollution and stress as long as needed for your mission.

Fear not, sleep tight.
