A week ago, I asked everyone on the Charging LIFE team to write a blog on the topic, “What does Charging Life mean to you?” … and by the way, we are always open to anyone who wants to write about anything relating to Charging Life (Organic living, God, Jesus, renewable energy, charity works…so on), just send us your original blog and contact info and if we use your blog, we’ll let you know… but anyhow, we asked what is Charging LIFE to you, and I figured I’d start out with my blog.
To me, Charging LIFE is actually getting outside and enjoying the amazingly perfect work of art God has created for us to experience and live in! It also means to make Health the number one priority because a strong body builds a strong mind. Being both physically and mentally strong makes life much easier, and easier to stay positive and deflect all the darkness that tries to plague many of us.
I say, throw the television out the window and replace that time spending it outdoors or reading more…Here is a novel idea, how about both?!?!
In an age of electronics to make us more productive, we are actually slaves to these devices and we can begin to idolize them! Ask yourself what do these devices do but actually consume my attention and put pressure on me to do more, Faster-Faster-Faster!!
Don’t get me wrong, they’re a useful part of world now, but really think about how much time we are connected to them in the weird pseudo virtual reality we can get sucked into by allowing them to almost be a part of the family, when our TRUE reality – our amazing planet and the people in it are being forgotten.
I challenge all of you to take two weeks with no TV, Video Games, Limit your cell phone use, internet and Social networking time and just get out and do something outdoors during that time… or get involved in starting an exercise program, help a food kitchen; basically, disconnect from the Matrix and see what happens! You’ll discover an amazing world of things you can actually smell, touch, hear, taste and feel!
God calls you to be in the world, but not OF the world.
Charging LIFE is also about what you eat! These days we are surrounded by bad choices and with the fast lifestyle we are leading (mentioned above), we tend to totally forget about what we are putting into our bodies and opt for the quick fix of Junk Food so we can keep going, again Faster-Faster-Faster!!
In all actuality we are poisoning our bodies and slowly dying by eating GMO, sugar and sodium loaded processed and irradiated foods. Start cooking your own food and know the source….always look for CLEAN foods such as truly organic produce and meats by researching the source. I highly suggest buying direct from the small farms and producers who use non GMO seed and grow organically, not these big food distributors and grocery chains, as many of the produce items are not organic and are laden with chemicals and even some of their “organic” products come from GMO sources (or are “organically grown” in China which always seems to have serious food related health issues and the verification process of checking on how the products are being grown is partially run by the government there). If the organic foods price seems too good to be true… check the label to see where it’s made.
God created a perfect planet that provides all living creatures the best of the best and its being threatened by certain men in the name of MONEY. They don’t care what happens to you as long as you buy there crap and eat it… Yum Yum!!! If it makes you sick, they have pills to fix that from companies, sometimes owned by some of the same shareholders.
The change is not easy at first, but what change is?
If you have to, take baby steps but never ever use an excuse to as why you will not embrace this part of you. That’s just that, an excuse is just an EXCUSE, and for the record- I very much dislike that word.
I say you can only find true happiness when you take care of yourself and your loved ones through exercise, nutrition and acts of kindness, giving as much of yourself in a selfless and unexpecting way!
We’ve been lost for a few generations now, and Humanity is waking up and learning that we all can make a difference and finding the person within us we deserve to be as a gift from God, and He calls on us to love and give it back to others to complete the circle. Gods love for us (providing life, food, love), we give love to God and others, and those others give love back to us, to others, to the environment and to God.
So get off the couch, get outside, eat healty and discover the new YOU that’s always been inside and waiting to be let out! Life is an amazing ride and you will grow more than ever.
