When you do something kind and no one knows, the whole world knows because it gets a little brighter on the Earth, and the fear and the darkness get a little weaker, and when you smile at a stranger you make them your friend, and when you make someone happy you start a trend that won't ever stop, you've made the world a better place forever, and who cares if you're rich or famous or clever, if you have a good heart and the courage to…Continue
When life gets good, you realize just how bad it was before. And that can be hard. But if you can embrace and accept that things were tough, and see it all clearly, you will find that what you lost during that time is returned to you, plus some!
Because the contrast between then and now will make you appreciate everything so much more deeply. Happiness, health, fun, friends, life, you are seeing it all like a child does; everything is novel, and vivid, and important. And…Continue
We as humans have come to measure life in length, by how many years we can live. But in reality life is not linear; it should be seen not for how long it is, but for its overall size and breadth; by how far we can spread our wisdom, how far the light in our soul can shine, how many people we can love, support, and share this beautiful world with, and by how much fun we can have in the time we are given, however long or short that may be. Spread the love my…Continue
So I have been doing the " raw till four" program for a while now. When I first came across raw foods I went fully raw for a week or two and felt GREAT. Then for some reason I went into this mode of cooked foods and was eating cooked foods for dinner almost every day. I feel not so good on this at all, I feel the cooked foods make me crave salt and fat often and keep me feeling weighed down. I am especially having trouble with lowering my fat intake, I used to love adding a whole avocado and…Continue
Chris is at it again, and again, it's in NYC, so I'm jumping in on it (since it's in my town!). This would be the 3rd year in a row we are having a frickin' fruitluck party. Come join us! Come hang out with everyone. You will have a blast! :)…Continue
I have been doing pull ups regularly for a few month now, not following a strict exercising plan, just having fun. And today with a good friend of mine, we went training and he kinda pushed to try to do a muscle up which I believed I could not do, but I was wrong and I could get 3 of them done!!! Power of motivation and fruits!
That made me feel so happy!

Banana therapy, Day 12! End of the road???
I have reached my initial commitment date of 12 days and this will be my final blog within regard to my direct experiences during “Banana Island”. I will continue to blog on 30bad but also using a tumblr http://andrewpopeisactivated.tumblr.com/
The above address will be a more holistic blog based on a bit of everything that I do!
Yesterday was a tough one, I…
Life’s a risky business. It is so uncertain, unpredictable, and let’s face it, just plain weird! What are we all doing here?? And added to it’s general incomprehensible vastness are so many other variable factors in our lives: family, friends, work, money, health, it’s a lot to keep tabs on! And sometimes this can make us feel a little overwhelmed. Everything external is so changeable and out of control, which makes it important that we remain the constant in our own lives; the one person…Continue
Banana therapy???? Day 11!
Running & Detox
Last night I experienced some mild detox, I started hallucinating right before bed time and it lasted about 20mins. This could have been caused by any number of countless substances that I have pounded my body with over the last 29 yrs, most likely culprits are LSD or magic mushrooms!
I point to these 2 as the experience was not unlike coming down from a trip.
It was uncomfortable but also a little funny,…

Banana therapy???? Day 10! A day in the life!
I thought today I would give a little bit of a rundown of daily activities.

Wake around 9 o’clock (lazy I know J)
Drink about 600ml of water
Exercise on the exercise bike for about 30-40 mins while also participating in a Spanish…

Banana therapy????? Day 9. Control vs manipulation
When does control become manipulation?
A friend commented that it must be exhausting to try and have control of everything in your life and in short yes it definitely can be, but only at first.
Soon enough like physical activity, after the pain of the 1st mile is gone you will have the strength to tackle the 2nd mile powered also by the momentum of the 1st.
My friend brought…Continue
Banana therapy???? Day 8 Addictions
Last night I spent some time with friends to celebrate the birthday of one of my closest companions. We met at his apartment and stayed around there for the remainder of the night, I ended up staying until about 12:30am and consequently slept in til 10:30am (not how I normally like to do it).
Many of my friends still lead very unhealthy and often thoughtless lifestyles and can all too often be consumed in the distractions that come…

Banana therapy????? Day 7
I cannot express how ridiculously easy this experience has been for me so far, I have experienced very little emotional or physical processing.
About 2 years ago I did an MMS detox and that was VERY VERY intense and could not be done unless you had the care and support around you, I was living with a beautiful family at the time and could not have done it without them.
The family I was living with do some great work and can be…
