    Gravity, Human Movement and Parkinson's Disease

    in Health

    Innate human coordination requires being in sync with the STRAIGHT-down influence of gravity. This enables us to tap the substantial energy generated by the downward movement of our body mass. In infancy, we all learn this highly evolved skill as we teach ourselves to sit, stand and walk with grace and power. Early in childhood, however, through deep cultural conditioning, we forget. From the day we are born, we see everyone around us sitting back in chairs, sofas, car seats, etc. At around 3 or 4, we get sucked into this utterly normal, but mal-adaptive behavior. We begin sitting-back with staggering repetition. In so doing, we interfere with gravity's influence by sending our body mass down on a BACKWARDS trajectory. Our brains automatically react -- with muscular strain and skeletal distortion -- to keep our head/neck functionally vertical. We don't notice these reactions nor feel anything unusual. It all happens subconsciously. This kinesthetic disconnect spills over into how we stand and walk. The consequences are all around us: society-wide epidemics of bad posture, lower back and neck pain, knee and hip replacements. For people with Parkinsons, the consequences are even more severe, restricting free movement considerably. This can be changed -- through re-developing sensitivity to our downward-moving body mass and how it is affecting us moment-by-moment. If you are planning to listen, it will be worth your while to check-out in advance an illustrated essay on this topic at www.uprighting.com/Parkinsons.pdf.

    ¿Qué significado tiene la sabiduría? Con el Texto de Un curso de milagros

    in Self Help

    ¿Si usted podría elegir entre la inteligencia o la sabiduría cual tendría más valor para usted? 


    La sabiduría parece venir con edad y experiencia; decimos a veces de una persona joven,  “Su sabiduría va más allá de sus años”. La sabiduría tiene una cualidad intemporal. La inteligencia, por otra parte, se asocia con  aprendizaje desarrollado con tiempo y grados.


     ¿Entonces, qué es la sabiduría? Un curso en milagros dice:


    “La inocencia es sabiduría porque no tiene consciencia del mal; y el mal no existe. No obstante, es perfectamente consciente de todo lo que es verdad. La resurrección demostró que nada puede destruir a la verdad. El bien puede resistir cualquier clase de mal, al igual que la luz disipa cualquier clase de obscuridad.” Página 41, Texto.


    Hoy con Eloisa Ramos estudiamos el Capítulo 3 de UCDM titulado La percepción inocente. Miramos al significado de la sabiduría; y puesto que se define en términos de “inocencia”, también preguntamos, ¿Por qué es sabio el inocente?


    “Si lo único que existe es la verdad, lo único que la mentalidad recta puede ver es perfección. He dicho que lo que Dios crea o lo que tú creas con la misma Voluntad existe realmente. Eso es, pues, lo único que los inocentes pueden ver. Los inocentes no adolecen de una percepción distorsionada.”  Página 42, Texto.

    This week, Thursday Night Thunder with host Adam Sinclair (@faborplumbs) and co-host Mykkal Mulalley (@Mykkal61) gaze into the future of auto racing with the drivers of Panoz Delta Wing, Katherine Legge and Sean Rayhall. Katherine Legge and Andy Meyrick return for a third year to compete for Panoz DeltaWing Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship. They are joined by Georgia native Sean Rayhall who proved his driving prowess behind the wheel of the coupe at the recent IMSA Daytona Test.

    Legge and Rayhall will campaign the full season with Meyrick joining for the endurance events.

    The 2016 season looks set to be an exciting one for Panoz DeltaWing Racing. With the new name comes an impressive new livery reminiscent of the legendary Panoz ‘Spirit of America’ LMP1 Roadster S 14 years ago which continues to be a fan favorite to this day.  This new livery represents Panoz continued focus as a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer of exclusive luxury sports cars with a truly successful motorsports heritage.

    Panoz DeltaWing Racing returns this year with one goal in mind: To consistently demonstrate the coupe’s competitiveness and be on the podium. The team enters 2016 following strong performances where they were up front and on-pace with the leaders in several of the late-season races including Lone Star Le Mans and Petit Le Mans.

    Virtue of Surrender & Headache: Not Tonight – Read My Lips Radio w/ akaRadioRed

    in Lifestyle

    Read My Lips Radio - January 18, 2016 guests


    Vishnu Swami, known as the Maverick Monk, presents new, fun and understandable ways of condensing the 5,000-year-old spiritual wisdom of India to empower and insire us in modern times. He calls himself "risky and radical", and his words are designed to spark intrigue and introspection. His book, The Virtue of Surrender, will be published in Summer 2016. Topics he will discuss include …Why women are more spiritual than men. Why happiness requires being addicted to Spiritual Surrender. How he became the youngest Swami ever. www.vishnu-swami.com.


    Chronic headaches are "serious business" that can turn life's simple pleasures into a problem. There are very effective medical (Western) as well as equally effective alternative (Eastern) strategies for both headache treatment and prevention, says Ravinder Singh, MD, author of Not Tonight – I Have A Headache. A board-certified neurologist specializing in the prevention and treatment of neurological diseases, especially headache, stroke and epilepsy, Dr. Singh is the Founder and President of the Beverly Hills Headache Institute. nottonightihaveaheadache.com/home.


    And when was the last time you laughed – or cried? "Suppressing emotions is what we're told to do, at work, at school, in public places…we become masters at being composed." Dr. Singh's blog explores laughter – why we do and don't laugh, and why we should more often.

    Was Job wrong in his theology? \ Estava Jo errado em sua teologia?

    in Religion

    Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.
    But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
    Job 2:9,10


    Então sua mulher lhe disse: Ainda reténs a tua integridade? Blasfema de Deus, e morre.
    Mas ele lhe disse: Como fala qualquer doida, assim falas tu; receberemos de Deus o bem, e não receberemos o mal? Em tudo isso não pecou Jó com os seus lábios.
    Jó 2:9,10
