Health vs vaccines

Submitted by on

Many who have attended various Byron Sophia groups have said they were vegetarian, some saying they were vegan.

It would seem reasonable to expect that many, if not most of those who attended were also orientated toward "natural healing" and natural living - e.g. eating organic vegetables, enjoying plenty of sunshine, etc.

Within that context, of living a healthy lifestyle, the recent work of Dr Bruce Lipton is salient, in regards to the Corona/Covid-19 epidemic.

In his YouTube video "How never to get sick again"1 he affirms that fear (e.g. fear of getting a virus), is one of the factors in illness.

chemicals released by the brain in fear shut down the growth of the body and shut down the immune system

As he explains, when being chased by a sabre-toothed tiger, our ancestors would have used 100% of their energy to fight or run away. The body naturally shuts down our immune system in such circumstances, in order to maximize resources and energy for legs, arms, etc, for survival.

He also emphasizes that fear shuts down the generation of red and white blood cells, cellular regeneration, and so on. In short, fear reduces our ability to live in optimal health, with an optimal immune system.

Another lively discussion among the seven who attended.

Initially a somewhat off-topic discussion ensued in which the viability of future meetings (with the need to fund weekly room hire) was discussed.

For one who has read the book, the benefits were reported to be significant ('life altering'). Instead of seeking to blame some past difficulty or trauma, the question as to what is the purpose of present behaviours or circumstances was revealing, and found to be exceedingly useful in understanding our present anxieties and discomfort.

A few real-life examples were shared, in which asking about the goal, or purpose of certain experiences (one example was that of regularly socializing with a 'friend' even though there was a sense of disquiet about doing so), revealed the true nature of the disquiet or angst, etc. Rather than simply operating on 'auto-pilot' and feeling uneasy, when we question the goal, or purpose of our behaviours, a great deal of insight can be gained.

From Wikipedia

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882)[5] was an American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Event Type: 

the-courage-to-be-disliked.jpgA round-table discussion1 exploring some, or many of the ideas in the book "The Courage to be Disliked".

Including the benefit of looking forward, exploring the meaning of our choices, rather than looking back into the past for the cause of present malaise, upset, difficulty etc.

Discussion of the practical benefits, and the effectiveness of teleology  -- "the study of the purpose of a given phenomenon, rather than its cause" as per the work of Alfred Adler, et al.
