As Americans, we have some special days that we celebrate as three-day weekends.
The reason we celebrate MLK is that he effected change by using conscientious objection and non-violent protest. The concept of civil disobedience was largely borrowed from Gandhi’s struggles against British Colonial Rule and Apartheid in South Africa.
But where does the root of these ideas lie? The concept of ahimsa means to not harm, whether in thought, word, or deed. In fact, we live in a time of great ahimsa, as we always have. It is in man’s nature to love, not to hate, and that is why the refusal to engage with a system of oppression under its own terms, however dehumanizing and provocative, is so powerful.
It is certainly not easy to “turn the other cheek” as Jesus recommended, but when we choose the love emotion in the presence of the fear and hate, the energy mismatch leaves both ourselves and the would-be oppressor in a higher state of grace.
In these times, the greatest terrorist threat is our own acceptance of programmed reality. CNN sends us daily images of Ebola and Isis but in truth, those threats are abstract and finite in their scope.
On a personal note, we need to “emancipate ourselves from mental slavery” as Bob Marley wrote, by challenging the assumption that aging is predestined and stalking us. When we accept that terror into our lives, we allow the medical-industrial complex to get us on a costly regiment of disease management when the power to heal is nascent within us all and can be unlocked using adaptogenic herbs and lifestyle choices.
Namaste and thank you to a great leader and visionary for not only a three-day weekend, but for appealing to our higher natures in the collective evolution of history.
In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.
The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.
I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.
In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN
In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
