When the clocks change but the time doesn’t… #thenewwaytothink


…biorhythms go haywire, literally. Why the time change thing then when it’s such a drag? There’s no logical reason, but then it affects our thinking. It’s a perfect example of when our collective mental constructs do not match reality; the bi-annual increase in the bi-polar mind body split is another manipulation that can adversely affect our lives unless we take meaningful action.. .for example see rt.com/news/199464-winter-time-russia-clocks. Going back and forth, back and forth, for no viable reason is in itself dysfunctional, in a true laissez-faire economy artificial inefficient practices would be done away with in no time literally.

So what time is it really? Changing the clocks was originally instituted as a crisis response to save electricity for war production during winter. And sad to say it’s been allowed to continue to evoke the scarcity cog mentality by disorientating our perception of what the times really are.. Even to the point that some weird rhetoric’s being proliferated that because ‘circadian’ and ‘biorhythm’ are being used interchangeably these semantics somehow make the natural rhythms of a living organism invalid. No one’s that much of a fool, we know we can’t change the fact of movement through space. We’re living in a fantasy if we think we can alter the laws of physics, the ticking clock waits for no one. What we can do is change our response to that reality to improve alignment with the universal principles which determine quality of life.

It’s time to accept time for what it is, not what we think it is, an objective measurement not a willy nilly manipulation. Shifting clocks can disrupt sleep and reduce productivity, the effects can be severe and last for weeks. A 2008 Swedish study found that heart attacks are more common during the first three weekdays following the start of Daylight Saving Time. More automobile accidents reportedly occur on the first Monday following the start of Daylight Saving Time than at any other time of the year. It seems that our body can tolerate the stress of getting up earlier in the fall better, but it can’t deal with an arbitrary clock change that also involves a mental shift of perception.

Compromised mind/ body integrity in the long term is believed to have significant adverse health consequences on our organs, particularly in the development or exacerbation of cardiovascular disease. According to the American Journal of Physiology in an article on Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, “Circadian rhythm disorganization produces profound cardiovascular and renal disease…” Plus, the suppression of melatonin production associated with the disruption of the circadian rhythm may increase the risk of developing cancer.

So how can we take back IQ EQ PQ integrity and stop the profanity that leads to degradation of our body temple? As Dr. Herzog mentioned protein cells play a key role in time-keeping, which of course requires pH fitness. Restoring acid base equilibrium returns normal function to protein cells otherwise they can become deformed under acidic conditions, which can happen under any kind of emotional, mental or physical stress. I’ve also found that keeping at least one clock in the house set to the right time all year around helps protect from internal contradiction. And of course I do pHx daily to maximize electrolyte flow throughout the body interconnecting all organ systems necessary to balance body pH (without which complete mind body integrity isn’t possible). Body’Fit pHx is a great way to get rid of jet lag and restore biorhythms very quickly.

Measurement Reduces Assumptions

Whether it’s Return On Investment (ROI) or Body Mass Index (BMI), measurement provides a comparison of the components of success for business to fitness. It’s what allows us to understand the relationship between our actions and our results. Of course graphs, charts and yardsticks aren’t everything, that”s why we also have observation and practical experience.

Being reasonable and informed helps us take care of business with a clarity, confidence, and creativity that syncs with reality. The point is, reducing assumptions that can otherwise accompany the ‘need to be right’, gives us the common ground for interacting on the basis of simple agreement rather than costly conflict.

Harvard School of Business associate Rita McGrath talks about the process of  acquiring the necessary knowledge as a willingness to suspend belief, risk failure, and try different things fast, cheap. and often – till gold emerges out of muddy waters. It gives us permission to listen to intuition and open the door when we hear opportunity knocking. “Plan to learn not plan to be right” McGrath points out in her interview.

However actions speak louder than words, and business knows how confidence without guts doesn’t necessarily add up to Will to Do. Harvard showed their true colours when they publicly admonished Steve Jobs’ strength of character based on biography recently, much to the chagrin of biography author, Walter Isaacson who said Jobs was nothing  like they perceived through the Harvard lens. As Seth Godin put it, Harvard grads may have confidence, but they don’t have what it takes to follow through on risk. They may do the research but they’re not willing to gain the experience by putting themselves on the line.

You can’t ignore will power as the primary root of business. Sometimes, there’s no established way, no other means, no resources; inner will is the only way. That’s where Meta Living Design comes in, What makes Metawork different? It’s a company that provides measureable tools to develop the guts, heart, and brain power for business (not as usual). This takes a logical method with the speed to match the realities of technological pace for sustainable success, to sustain reason, to Ignite Passion consistently. When compared to other methods the difference is that Metawork is explainable and understandable, not just experiential; but it’s that too…

Limbic-System-Exercise, Mood Change

What’s the best way to support the executive directive function of the frontal lobe, pineal gland and limbic system directly is to restore the physiological balance to Ignite Passion, providing a more reliable advancement on the usual psychological self-talk required to convince ourselves to exercise?

When we understand the impact of intense emotional experiences accumulated in the process of growing up, we know that memory creates networks of physical tensions that splits brain and body at an early age. This is one of the reasons that simply playing IQ improvement games fail to fully integrate mind and body. By liberating deeply held physical tensions, we also liberate psychic tensions, because every group of muscle cells is also connected via the neural and endocrine systems to the brain. This signifies anything blocking the extreme of a nerve ending has actually imprisoned it’s corresponding cerebral cell which no longer receives any messages. It is enclosed in a kind of biological anesthesia. We do not want to use these muscles in certain ways because they cause us pain. Therefore we restrict these movements and start patterning more comfortable movements, and as we do this, awareness, cleverness, and the most valuable cerebral functions are lost.

Therefore working just with the mind cannot achieve emotional calm centered-ness deliberately, or can it Ignite Passion spontaneously. Stored tensions remain until released by deep body work combined with physical exercise that aims to integrate gut and brain. This integration can occur very fast if we design a warm-up cool down that follows precise natural laws for awakening the endocrine, neural, and circulatory systems in a specific sequence under conditions of chemical balance, i.e. acid base equilibrium. To achieve the pH fitness integration necessitates, such a series of exercises must be in accord with the sequence of interrelations of our organic functions.

Mind Body and Split Economy

The contradiction that exists between the ambitions of the psyche and the limitations of the body creates an imbalance in our lives. Our normal experience in a technological society causes tension and stress. Stress can paralyze a human being totally, because we immediately fall into the conflict of body and mind. The body wants to escape, the mind doesn’t know what to do. Unlike animals which have no mind expression at all, where the action of saving themselves is complete, human beings have developed a mind that is separate from the body.

We take on the beliefs and mental constructs of our social environment at a very young age. When these externally derived perceptions do not match reality, the aims and aspirations of the psyche oppose those of the body. This conflict between mind and body is what produces most illnesses in human beings. For example, if the mind wants to complete a task that exceeds the physical limitations of the body (organized according to complete logic), our psychic purpose can be so strong that it overpowers the body. Eventually the body responds by becoming sick.

Analogically (part of the same mind/ body continuum really) when Wall Street games pulled most of our money supply out of circulation, it imposed such huge stressors on the marketplace an economic split occurred, resulting in a convalescing means of exchange. It’s much the same with exercise where the muscles pull most of the blood out of deep circulation, the biochemical imbalance that results when there isn’t an equitable flow of energy to all organs, splits mind and body even further.

How can we resolve the internal conflict between our idea of what we should be doing and what we are doing at the moment?  Only by balancing mind and body so that their aims and aspirations are in harmony rather than contradiction can we mend as individuals and societies, and live a complete life. There are many approaches.

How well does Jean Design fit your Genes?

The year 2011 marks the beginning of a trend to build internal strength for adaption – within our communities, our businesses, our relationships, even our own body and mind (whereas previously we’ve relied on adaptation to build strength). Full recovery from a split economy to the mind/body split depends on it.

This is my prediction. It’s a subtle but significant difference, and it’s not about how far we can push ourselves to meet externally construed demands. As internal integration starts to be recognized as the alpha and omega that necessarily precedes externally focused competition, more sophisticated cooperation with the needs of the lynchpin, will emerge.

It’s much like the development of technique that enhances naturally endowed homegrown talent. It’s like what happened in Italy, where craftspeople who had honed their art to the height of fashion over many centuries were discarded for the sake of a shallow outsourced outcome. There was a certain point at which it crippled their income as a nation, and the return to the centre became inevitable.

It was supposed to be a gift but I just had to keep it. I’d purchased a pair of thousand dollar Italian jeans at Sasso for a quarter of the price. How’s that possible? That’s the question I asked the proprietor, and he told me an interesting story of creativity rising out of the ashes. When manufacturing moved out of Italy, the craftspeople didn’t go away. They had to do something, and they did what they know – real art for real people.

And boy, is Italian-made the quintessential jean. Wow they move the way you move. Americans may have invented jeans but the Italians have perfected them. You’ve never lived till you’ve lived in a pair of jeans that fits every nuance of your soul, that holds the shape of your body with intention. Every detail of construction is absolute magic, it cannot be replaced or duplicated without history, without every element ‘made in Italy’ (no cheap radioactive metal here). Only a work of art can match our genes for an experience of perfection. This is the coming trend in business health – personal wellness.

How do we nourish rather than over-stimulate? How do we drive resources into the deep organs upon which our health depends, the lynchpin foundational to wealth upon which we all stand? What balances the conflict between adaptation & recovery, between Wall Street money games & means of exchange, between mind & body? In two words “inspired creativity”. This is what puts muscle behind the internal needs of our communities, our businesses, our relationships, our body, in order to achieve health, wealth, and strength with greatest economy. Health (of ourselves & the planet) as the pre-established source of wealth, is free.

Look for the science at the deepest level of biochemical harmony before asking the body to adapt to the stress that imbalances body pH (complete brain/ body integration isn’t possible without acid base equilibrium). Inspiration (literally breath of life) when engineered for fast restoration of pH fitness is a pre-requisite to health. No inspiration, no ambition. Seek that which matches our pre-established pattern with impeccable detail as timeless living art.


Recession Symptom of Adjustment

Much like symptoms, which are the self correcting side of the immune system; recession is the self correcting side of the economy. The symptoms are saving our life, so don’t touch them.

Prices self adjust preventing self destruction of continuing escalation of prices of everything from housing to personal essentials. For example half a litre of maple syrup went to 17 dollars about a year ago, readjusted to 15 dollars a few months ago, and last week this same bottle was 9 dollars, which is about what it was 3 years ago. As the market will only bare what the customer will pay, and since wages for the general working population (except those in the top 1% who have given themselves record increases) have been frozen, prices need to eventually reflect that.

Re-adjustment back to reality in terms of prices on consumer goods, also necessitates re-adjustment with respect to production of sustainable products by industry. While in the past, fast food has been the primary trillion dollar industry followed closely by drugs, the emerging wellness industry will need to replace these unsustainable industries in order to reflect the reality of our need for health.

And the third area that badly needs adjusting is respecting our main source of wealth, people. That’s where all the creativity and innovation lies latent waiting for the corporate barriers to drop their cog-wheel mentality (when the boss says one plus one equals three, you’ve gotta agree). The competitive edge has been expended with in-fighting within the corporate hierarchy. Cheap, fast and bad profit needs to be adjusted for more efficient and effective productivity where quality is the goal of the team as a whole.

Honestly, the only way I see all three happening realistically, is by adjusting how money comes into circulation so that it nourishes the economy wholistically. And this won’t happen without the internal integrity to entrust the issuing of society’s money supply to an independent body that does not profit from the system. Or until the number of people who have attained their health potential reaches critical mass…
