Another annual water-only maintenance fast

Posted on March 27, 2013 at 7:30am 2 Comments

Short one, only 22 days--have learned that in 22 days my body maintains high metabolism, very high energy, so I will not have to work at kicking it up after--just maintaining healthy exercise.

This year I do not have the menu of ills, aches and pains of previous years, so hopefully more progressive healing. I also get to come down and do the refeeding thing in South Bay of L.A. Where the largest, best overall selection of raw organic fruit and vegetable in the world is easily and… Continue

I spent 5 days in an FLDS community

Posted on October 12, 2012 at 12:23am 1 Comment

This summer, I spent 5 days in an FLDS community (NOT the one run by Warren Jeff's, my ex next door neighbor). It blew my mind, and put me in a position to scrap 90% of what I thought I "knew' about the fringe religions of Mormon. I am extremely well traveled, have stayed with many cultures (like Massai, Fundamentalist Muslim), but this one is a highlight of my life.

I am not of any religion. Definitely not Mormon. Very definitely not Polygamist, though a lot of my friends are from… Continue

View on Jesus diet

Posted on October 12, 2012 at 12:06am 3 Comments

This is an observation, not a strongly held belief of mine...I do not want to have a religious debate in my blog area, though I will welcome comments...and critism of my interpretations only if the poster has actually read the sources I am commenting on.

Iif Jesus was raised by the Essene, and they were raw food devotès that also were forbidden to eat from below ground level (onion, ginger, garlic, carrot) that does not specify fruitarian. If they ate dairy, it follows that it was likely… Continue

My annual human flesh diet...

Posted on May 6, 2012 at 6:17am 10 Comments

I am now more than halfway through my annual water only fast to deal with debilitating injuries of 30 years ago.



By having water only,

My body is living entirely off human flesh, fat and skin, and occasionally toxins when I do not cleanse the colon often enough to keep up with the need to eliminate...

This year has been especially powerful as I have added Bikram hot yoga daily with enemas directly after. No dizziness when I stand up, and though I try to limit my… Continue

Hey Rock, thank you very much for the quick response on wheatgrass. I will have to go it give it a go!

Interesting to hear. I will do some experiement when spring comes with different kind of green juices and I am very curios to see how wild green juices will be compared to wheatgrass and other green juices and smoothies...

I can imagine it is a lot of work but as you say when you feel like it is worth it... However it is interesting to hear that you still do not like to drink it even after so long time drinking it.I love greens:) Keep up the good work!

Wow! So you really know loads about cats! I'm loving each piece of information! Thank you!

My cat hates water... But I guess that is because she'd been through a lot during her period on the streets or something. That's cute your actually enjoys it! I always see shots of big cats swimming, including the Brazilian Jaguar :)

Yeah, it's very concerning the fact that he might fall from the boat!

This Switzerland fact makes me wonder why some people really care about our furry friends and others don't give a bleep, you know? Here in Brazil, if you go to the police to inform about animal cruelty, they tell you to mind about your own business and that's all. Really sad.

You should definitely come, Rock! You'll love it! Nice to know about your background! My mom used to be a Geography teacher! I guess you'd like to meet her. She lives in Rio de Janeiro  (She's having English classes, so, don't worry! ^^ )

Hey! Nice to know you liked my story hehe
Nowadays, which happens to most of my tattooed friends, people get inked without actually having a reason, you know, what's more, a story...
Ow, I love cats!
I have this lil' black cutie pie I rescued from a square near my job! Her name is Mischka!
I'd really adore to have any experience with the big cats!
Well, you're moving to a boat? Hm... I guess your kitties won't really enjoy it, but, I'm still really selfish, so, if I were into such situation, I would carry them along, absolutely!

Wow, that's a pretty amazing thing about Africa! I wonder how cool it actually was to be there, in the real deal, their habitat! ^^

I really didn't know about these things over the Jaguar... I chose it too because it's the biggest and more powerful big cat from Brazil. We even have it featured on our R$:50,00 bill hehe

xx with loads of love!

Rock- i befriended you to answer your question since there was no other way-however- I see that as no reason to not be continue.

Hey Rock!

Thanks for the comment! ^^

Well... When I was younger (around 14/16) I used to have bunnies as my favorite/totem animals. I was shy, quiet, never argued with anybody, submissive, etc etc. Exactly like a bunny. I used to be constantly bullied by everybody, including family, and was really depressed. When I came to my breakthrough, "getting rid" of all of it and coming to live by myself, I experienced the same problems with my relations at my university and my job. I couldn't take it any longer, though. I got depressed and and ED was my special prize. I decided to see a therapist and she helped me to develop the real woman power inside, saying that I needed to be stronger, to be more assertive, do discover another totem. So, I had this birth mark in my arm that looked like a jaguar spot. Then, I decided to "spread it" into a nearly full arm tattoo. My attitude and life was changing, so I wanted to mark it over my skin.

Well, that's it!

Hey, thank you very much for the comment!

Having a vegan community close to us is really precious...

My fiancee is vegan, but not an 811 supporter at this moment. He already had a fruit based diet for a year about a decade ago. But is not planning to come back, while I'm fully intended to do it for the rest of my life. 

Oh, Nice to meet you!!

Hi Rock, just read your post about Ralph Waldo Emerson in the Nutritional Yeast thread. He was certainly aware of the concept, even though the word "vegan" was yet a century away. Have you heard of the Fruitlands community? It was founded by Bronson Alcott, father of famous author Louisa May Alcott, and a good friend of Emerson's. The Fruitlands community were strict vegans long before the term was coined. http://www.alcott.net/alcott/home/fruitlands.html

 

"At Fruitlands, Lane advocated a strict policy of abstinence.  “Neither coffee, tea, molasses, nor rice tempts us beyond the bounds of indigenous production,” Lane wrote.  “No animal substances neither flesh, butter, cheese, eggs, nor milk pollute our tables, nor corrupt our bodies.”  By living on a simple diet, the members of Fruitlands were to eliminate their need for trade and minimize labor.

If Alcott felt Brook Farm was not “austere enough,” he certainly made up for this lack at Fruitlands.  Absolutely no meat or other animal products were eaten (hence the name Fruitlands).  In fact nothing from animals (including wool, honey, wax, or manure) nor even animal labor were used by the community.  The founders felt men should not take anything from animals, for they should be as free as humans.  Bronson Alcott’s idealism was so strong, in fact, that he would not permit canker-worms to be disturbed, and forbade the planting of such vegetables and roots as grow downward instead of upward into the air."
Also, Helen and Scott Nearing, authors of Living the Good Life were vegans. They lived in the 1900s, but their books always started each chapter with historical quotes. Can't remember any of them at the moment, but there were some in their cookbook that referenced vegan ideas dating to the 1500's
Anyway, seemed you had an interest in the Transcendentalists and the history of vegetarian and vegan, so thought I would share.
