How to Lose Your Brain

Six Ways to an Empty Head...

You have billions of brain cells. Who needs that many, right? So, if you don’t care about losing some of them, lots of them, here is a short list on how to do it more quickly and make it permanent: 

• Eat lots of fatty animal tissue—beef, pork, packaged meats. 

• Skip the green foods, the fruits, the seeds, nuts, and veggies, especially that awful stuff that comes right out of the ground. 

• Don’t exercise. Watch more TV. 

• Up the caffeine. Sleep less. 

• Smoke more. Drink more alcohol. (Some say wine doesn’t count as booze so bottoms up!) 

• Finally, if anything goes wrong, have lots of legal—and not so legal—drugs on hand. No need to worry any further. Pop a pill and you’re covered. 

Results? Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, kidney and liver damage, vision, hearing, and bone loss, addiction, and of course, lots of dead brain cells. But who cares? It’s your life. Do as you will. 

I’m not reprimanding, only reminding, for I have sinned “more than ye all.” But ultimately, your brain, your very being, is not yours alone. We need you to be at your physical, emotional, and spiritual best. You could be the one who tips the world aright. (Don’t laugh…it could happen!) 

If you’re not taking care of yourself, you won’t be able to come to the rescue when you’re needed. 

You’re needed right now. More than ever.

How to Control the Universe, or Something Similar

By Richard Kent Matthews - eBook Author | Coach | Speaker

Can you control the universe? Well, more than you might believe...
How do we explain love, especially Divine Love, in contrast to pain and suffering, death and violence, not only among humans, but also animals, plants, planetary bodies, colliding galaxies, supernovas and the continuous path called entropy, or the disintegration of all that is? 

No matter the object, be it rock or flesh, or its direction, ultimately it all heads for destruction. It appears to be the natural way of things. Can we understand love in a way different from sweetness and light, or would that somehow be blasphemy? 

Most of us who believe in some sort of God 'out there' actually think He/She will stick Its Divine Finger into the natural mix in order to suspend the laws of physics simply to put a little more money in the bank account, stop the spread of a cancerous tumor, or keep a child from breaking his neck on the football field.

Not likely.

But there is a way for you to control YOUR universe if not THE universe. 
  • First, recognize your frailty. You are part of the creation, and are heading toward annihilation as certain as the rose in your garden or the moon in the sky on an August night.
  • Second, you have been given a finite amount of time to create and express your personal moment on this planet.
  • Third, you will be as good at creating your experience as your thoughts allow.
  • Fourth, your thoughts will ALWAYS determine the level of joy or anguish that you experience in any moment of your day.
  • Fifth, you can change your thinking if you want to do so, and you can also remain in your current patterns of thinking which are creating your current experience of the world.
  • Sixth, you can make one simple but major decision that will change your life forever, and this is the greatest and most powerful 'secret' you'll ever learn...
Eliminate all self-pity.*

Do that, and whatever amount of time you have on this planet, in this form, as a part of this universe will be heaven as you've never known it.


*(A spiritual disclaimer: Eliminating self-pity will, without doubt, be the toughest challenge you will ever accept into your life. Tis best to know that now, here, at the outset. And it also brings the most treasure. But you won't know until you move into and through it. Take the risk. It's worth it.)
