2022

It’s that time again!

The New Year is upon us, and while it’s common and tempting to spend the last few weeks of the year focused on having fun, it’s also a good idea to plan a running start into the year 2022.

It’s not just a new year. It’s a new world.

The cyber age is upon, bringing with it new opportunity; and perils. It is precisely during times like these the the frenetic motion of change can catapult one’s life into great leaps forward…or down the tubes.

Let’s aim for the former.

Health: a renaissance in the health sciences is months away. It will arise, at great cost. The hallmark of the health science renaissance is going to be do it together lifestyle- community collaboration to improve food and water quality, with a renewed emphasis on natural medicinals and physical culture.

Pushups. Herbs. Group exercise and coop farming.

Those who continue to rely on the petro dollar financed sick care system…will be disappointed. Often.

Overweight. Over-medicated. Unprepared to assume ownership of your well-being…yeah, no bueno.

Wealth: In like fashion the cyber age ushers in the digital decentralized ledger- the blockchain. It will effect everything in daily life. This is bigger than the printing press.

It will also require a greater degree of median technological literacy than before. Start learning now how to configure basic computer parts. The time of being able to let your kids handle it while you push the on off button is behind us.

Digital wallets. Private Keys. Cold Storage. Own them.

The sociopolitical order is being recast- soon, the culture that swam awash in self expression and self centeredness is going pivot to a new focus than can be summed up in one word-

Legacy.

What we leave to our posterity- in natural resources, wisdom, & their very genetic integrity…will soon become a front and center topic of discussion. I predict before 2025.

Humanity is coming of age, ready or not, into a period of greater self responsibility, with real challenges to test it’s discernment and judgement.

It remains true than psychology is downstream from physiology. A sound mind rests most ably in a sound body.

Get strong. The cyber age will not be kind to the weak.

Sun Circle Walking

Inspired by the teaching of Karl Godwin- I researched asian martial arts and western fencing schools.

In particular, the circle walking of Ba Gua and the stepping patterns of Spanish Circle Fencing, La Verdadera Destreza, stood out as similar and useful for biohackers as not merely a longevity exercise-but as a vitality practice.

Here, I show an adaptation of the idea using Acupuncture Baoding Balls, Cotton Soled Shoes, on bare earth. The circle walking and stepping develops a dynamic balance. The exercising of the baoding balls ramps up the motor cortex functions in the brain.

The environment, sunrise/sunset on a grounded surface further enhances the practice by virtue of adhering to the Acupuncture Medicine Model.

This is a profound practice- offering significant benefit to both beginner and expert, with compounding results over time- An absolute winner.

More on the topic to be shared in my upcoming release- Qigong Secrets Revealed.

The High Cost of The 1 Rep Max

For the fitness folk;

Test the limits of your strength constantly and you will discover where they are…immediately AFTER you have exceeded them.

OUCH!

Everyone I know who chased numbers in the weight room talks about what they used to be able to do…before they got hurt.

Use your weights as a tool, not a test. Life will test you plenty. Build yourself up, don’t tear yourself down.

To develop limit strength, triples are my first choice. The risk of going to far is less.
