  • 148. The Saguil Approach
    Decide to make a change in life for a reason/cause.
    Use alternative medicine practitioners wisely.
    Maintain visits with a health professional yearly +/-
    to control current illnesses.
    If medicines are necessary, don’t feel bad but plan on when you will be off them.
    If a job change is necessary, don’t feel bad but step into the new life with full commitment.
    Find an activity that “touches your heart” and inspire others
    Stay grounded daily with spirituality.
  • 149. Measuring just cholesterol or body weight as a success in changing a life is a very course representation of the benefits in dietary awareness.
    As general guidelines exist for the population, I urge that everyone treat the challenge with a personal alternative in applying rules or criteria
    No one should be forced to fit through a “pigeon hole”, although guidelines are for the “masses”, every living being exudes the life-force originally given by the universe in his/her own way (just like doshas).
    The Saguil Approach
  • 150. The universe will exist infinitely, events will occur, individuals will interpret some events as inspirational or demoralizing. There is an epidemic that is killing our society slowly….obesity. Tragic to witness, frustrating to treat, draining to maintain. It is our duty to control it now and help the next generation prepare for the conflict against this affliction to society. The only true thing we can control in this conflict is our reaction to it. Staying grounded with meditation, practicing mindfulness with eating, and asking “how would nature do it” will help prepare for battle against this tragedy.
