 Symptoms of Inner Peace 

-Dr. Jeff Rockwell

A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fears based on past experiences

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment

A loss of interest in judging self

A loss of interest in judging others

A loss of interest in conflict

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others

A loss of ability to worry (this is a very serious symptom)

Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation

Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature

Frequent attacks of smiling through the eyes of the heart

Increasing susceptibility to love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it

all the hemispheres

January 26, 2012

 All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.

Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season

Onto the meadow and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.

Make a new watermark on your excitement

And love.

Like a blooming night flower,

Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness

And giving

Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence

Lie beside an equator

In your heart.

Greet Yourself

In your thousand other forms

As you mount the hidden tide and travel

Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven

Are sitting around a fire

Chatting

While stitching themselves together

Into the Great Circle inside of

You.

From: ‘The Subject Tonight is Love’

how to brand a disease

January 17, 2012

 I was reading some older BodyTalk newsletters and found this interesting post on how the pharmaceutical companies market their new products.  Check out the article~

HOW TO BRAND A DISEASE – AND SELL A CURE

Article by Dr. Carl Elliott M.D, CNN.com
An interesting article covering PR branding of pharmaceuticals that treat a range of diseases such as “social anxiety disorder,” a condition previously known as “shyness”, or “urge incontinence” which many patients refer to as “accidentally peeing in my pants”.
….pharmaceutical marketers now sell drugs by selling the diseases that they treat. The buzzword is “disease branding.”

To brand a disease is to shape its public perception in order to make it more palatable to potential patients. Panic disorder, reflux disease, erectile dysfunction, restless legs syndrome, bipolar disorder, overactive bladder, ADHD, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, even clinical depression: All these conditions were once regarded as rare until a marketing campaign transformed the brand.
Once a branded disease has achieved a degree of cultural legitimacy, there is no need to convince anyone that a drug to treat it is necessary. It will come to him as his own idea.
