Devirusize – Our Microbiome – Our Body’s Ecosystem – We View Microbes (Bacteria, Yeast, Viruses) As Our Enemy & It’s What We’re Made Of – More So Than Human Cells! – Let’s Talk Human Immunity Science & COVID19

This is my chance to not appear as some sort of maniac who blindly bashes “medical and media science” with no regard for truth.

I am quite the contrary as this post, as well as all of the prior Devirusize posts, show. (See other recommended Devirusize poss listed below).

I do extensive research, analysis, and scrutiny of health information before formulating my conclusions. Furthermore, I follow protocols that I recommend that my followers at least investigate as I have, for some 30 years, no less!

It is important to note that those who blindly do what their doctors tell them to, and who take prescription drugs as well as vaccines without question, do little research, nor follow healthy lifestyles. So, who’s the foolish here?

Fairly methodically following alternative and natural protocols for over 30 years, I have experienced great success. My medical lab reports, including COVID19 testing, are very close to perfect, for a Black man of sixty-one years young. I can confidently say that I have defied several medical odds, without taking vaccines or medicine.

SHARE – This Post Is A Big Deal! – I Don’t Plan To Get The COVID19 Vaccine! – Being Forced To Will Mess With My Freedom & More Importantly – My Spirit – THIS POST TELLS YOU MY ALTERNATIVES

I could not wait to get this message out, and therefore am publishing it raw, with limited supporting information.

But I promise to send a subsequent post, under the DEVIRUSIZE series, that will explain what I have thoroughly research, questioned, and personally experienced in managing my health successfully for over 30 years, holistically, and through True Faith In God.

This post will be very raw and direct. Some may find that I am preaching. I am far from a preacher, but I do believe that I possess equivalent passion.

I do not mean to hate on anyone who chooses or has chosen to get vaccinated. You probably take many prescription drugs, and likely have had many vaccines. That is your right to, and I respect that.

But don’t hate on me for not choosing to get vaccinated. Don’t worry about me perhaps spreading coronavirus. You should have nothing to worry about. You’ve been vaccinated.

But as for me, I have not been vaccinated in my entire adult life, and my health is better than those that I know who have.


Apprehension of vaccinations and prescription drugs has done something unexpected to me.

  • It has elevated my faith in God and my desire to strive towards, that which I will never fully attain but will never stop trying to, Spiritual Perfection.
  • It has left me with a tremendous responsibility as well. I must strive to do everything as naturally (close to God’s paradise) as I can in terms of diet, lifestyle, exercise, connecting with nature, and stress management to show to God that I’ve honestly done my part to manage my own wellbeing, before sporadically running to man, whose motivator may be profit.

SHARE – 15 Reasons Why No COVID19 Vaccine For This Black Man! – Vaccines Are For Those Who Regularly Take Vaccines & Prescription Drugs Just Because They’re Told To

It has taken me over one month to prepare this post on the COVID19 vaccine. It is extensive and required a great deal of research. Many may not read it. That’s okay. I am not trying to reach puppets or androids. I am trying to reach those who take personal ownership of their own well-being, and who don’t follow everything that they are told to do.

This post is not intended to change anyone’s mind or to convert them. It simply provides facts, additional information, and of course, my opinion, on which you should solidify your decision if they are into that. Kevy


We’ve gotten so touchy and evangelistic about everything these days, racial issues, healthcare, taxes, global warming, and now it’s the COVID19 vaccine.

I appreciate that everyone has a right to have their own opinion about the vaccine. Whether they are taking it or not doesn’t bother me. But some people just get out right upset with you, if like myself, have decided that you’re just not taking it.

I haven’t taken the flu, pneumonia, measles, shingles, or none of those vaccines. The last vaccines I remember taking were when I was anywhere from 5 to 8 years old, and I’m standing strong. Those who take them regularly as adults often have poorer health than I do.

The Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommends 13 different vaccines for adults. I have taken none of these as an adult.

Recommended Vaccines by Age – Read More

I will never say never. I never say never about anything in life, so I can’t never say I take the vaccine. But it’s not anything that I am considering anytime soon. I’ve done my research and I’ve provided a list of reasons why I’m not rushing to take the COVID19 vaccine. Maybe you should consider these things as well, especially if you fit into my demographic.

Deciding not to take the vaccine wasn’t a difficult decision. I arrived at this decision rather easily, in spite of being exposed to COVID19, testing positive, then subsequently testing negative 3 times.

I have several reasons and I’m sure that further research will probably give more reasons why taking the COVID19 vaccine is not right for me, at this time.

I respect those who choose to take the vaccine as soon as it becomes available to them. That is their choice and right, such as mine. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything with regard to the vaccine, except for one thing.

This one thing I encourage everyone to do on every decision, research. Do not make your decisions purely based on fear, media, hearsay, or even religion. After doing your due diligence, then follow your heart, the part of us all where God’s spirit resides. My heart tells me not now for the COVID19 vaccine.

I know it may seem that I’ve been slacking on posts, but I really haven’t. I’ve been working in the background.

But also, I have days where I may have a little anxiety about the times we’re in.

I wish more of us would admit that we’re going through shit. Because there’s a lot of stuff that’s going on. It’s a lot to comprehend. It’s a lot of uncertainty. It’s challenging our Faith, challenging our truth, and it’s challenging who we are. We should just admit that we’re going through things.

On my good days, however, I am creating. I have upcoming posts on the That Monkey. I have another post that’s coming up on Truth Decay. And I want to do a post on vaccines because that’s not for me when it comes out.

So, I thought I’d give you a little teaser for now, while I create more content for you, in the background.

The other day, I was just stumbling through my YouTube feed and ran across Common in a studio performance. And it was incredibly beautiful! It shows me that we share a common vibe. I’ve always liked Common. He shows me that what he’s saying is what I’ve been saying in most of my posts. …About this revolution.

Listen to it, especially the 1st, 2nd, and 4th tracks. Those are really good. I also put in a little Eryka Badu. I skipped Common’s video by mistake and discovered a quarantine performance by Eryka Badu. It’s also a performance video and it’s nice.

DEVIRUSIZE – Janet, STOP! – Give Me A Beet! – Another Mashup Post – …My Mind Goes In All Directions Simultaneously Sometimes

Here I go again. This post is a mashup.


Those who follow my blog, Seasons As Our Teacher (KevyMichaels.Blog), know that I love to do mashups of totally unrelated topics. In this post, I mashup Janet Jackson and Beats, I mean Beets. Actually, I do a mashup of Janet with the veggie Beets, put to Beats contained in one of her most popular songs. The post emphasizes the health benefits of Beets in a catchy video that I created with help from other content creators. As a garnish, on the blog, I added a Janet photo slideshow, health beet recipes, including my mother’s simple New Orleans Beet Salad, and two of my favorite Janet song videos. Enjoy. Kevy

Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?

Photo – Tuong -Dat – Unsplash
Photo – Nathan Dumlao Unsplash

I have been juicing and blending fruit and vegetables for at least 15 years now.  I do both actively, but prefer juicing.  I like to drink freshly prepared juices especially when I am fighting a minor illness or when detoxing, which is always since our environment and food supply is full of toxins.  My juicing and smoothie regiment is a critical aspect of my Devirusizing protocol.  But drinking freshly prepared juices is not equal to drinking smoothies.  One is clearly better than the other.  In this post, I will explain the differences as I see it, and have researched it.

When I worked at Whole Food Markets, I regularly asked customers, who were “strictly organic”, to consider a regiment for detoxing, daily, monthly, and quarterly.  Many who go “strictly organic” do not detox, seeming to imply that being “strictly organic” alleviates this need.  This is an illusion, in my opinion.

It is much wiser to eat organic when it matters.  Refer to the 2020 Dirty Dozen & Clean 15 Lists to determine when it matters.  On this list released each spring, the Environmental Working Group (also known as the EWG) publishes a list of fruits and vegetables that experts at the nonprofit say contain elevated levels of pesticides that may be concerning. Now known as the Dirty Dozen list to health experts and in-the-know shoppers, the list has long called conventional farming methods into question, especially as the EWG also publishes a competing list called the Clean Fifteen that highlights produce containing little to no pesticides when grown conventionally.

It is better to eat organic when it matters, and wiser to not assume that there is no need to detox periodically.  For in spite of going organic, we must accept that we are still living in a toxic world on many levels.  We should include detoxing in our health practices.  It is much wiser to complement healthy food choices, with detoxing.  Juicing (and drinking plenty of distilled water) is a great practice for detoxing.  This is a smarter way to Devirusize.

I also meet many people who sing the praises of juicing or blending (smoothies).  Most people choose one over the other.  Most that I’ve met, prefer smoothies over juices.  They state obvious pros for smoothies, and cons for juicing, but leave out many pertinent facts when making this comparison.  This is consistent with how most people practice being “healthy”, without pertinent facts.

I liken drinking fresh juices to drinking medicine, because it goes into the bloodstream within minutes, not requiring much digestion.  Think about drinking a cocktail.  After a few minutes, you feel it, because the alcohol goes into your bloodstream rather quickly. The same happens with juices, but not with smoothies. Continue reading “Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?”

Devirusize – Take Off Your Shoes! – You Should Hit The Ground After Reading This Post! – It Will Give U Access To Calm, Healing & Love – When U Need It Most – Practice Grounding & Earthing

Grounding

I am back with a new post and this is a really important one.

This represents a new element to the Devirusize protocol.  “Devirusize” is a word I that invented in order categorize my suggestions for making your body optimally healthy.  On my blog, search the word “Devirusize” to find other related posts.

This element of optimal wellness is on Earthing or Grounding.  I am unsure, but I would imagine that Earthing’s distinction is that in addition to grounding, it includes hugging trees, sitting, or standing in water, or on rocks.  Grounding involves intimate contact with the ground, preferably while barefoot.

It has taken me quite some time to pull this post together because, as with all my posts, I include a lot of content.  And I research and dig into each subject, reviewing all of the included videos.  This process is not just a labor of love, because I become well-versed in many areas of living from doing so.

This grounding thing is amazing!  I want everybody to look into!  It doesn’t cost you anything and if you really get into it, even if you spend money on devices, you’ll find that it’s not extremely expensive compared to the benefit that you get from grounding.

First of all, I ground all the time.  I’ll do it today.  I am doing it frequently because I am expecting Colorado’s winter.  Believe it or not, it snowed here about two weeks ago.  Three days later, it was 85°.

This the post includes me recording myself while grounding, just to give you an idea of how I feel when I am grounding.  …To let you see what I am seeing.  In addition to my own video, I include other videos on grounding from experts, with supporting scientific evidence.  In fact, there’s US government research that says grounding helps with inflammation and cancer and all sorts of diseases and dis-ease.  It is unbelievable that enough people don’t know about grounding and practice it regularly!

U Receive Blood Lab Reports On The Regular But Don’t Know What Da Hell They Mean – 5 Ways To Better Understand & Prepare For Blood Lab Reports

In this post, as with every post, I have done research in advance, in this case, on blood labs and how to interpret the results. I have also provided recommendations, supported by the medical community, and ones based on my personal experience. You should complement this information with your own experiences and research.

With today’s increasing concerns about health, I recommend that you read this detailed post, and when you are ready, I suggest that you review your last blood lab reports again to see if you understand them better. If not, you should at least be well-equipped to ask your doctors intelligent questions.


I am not a doctor, but I should not have to be to understand my own blood lab reports. They are given to me by my doctor, to assess my health status. But had I not done the research; I would not understand how to properly interpret the reports.

In my experiences, only by exception are doctors willing to spend extra time with me to explain the full report. Also, often I have to make a follow-up appointment just to speak with the doctor in detail about my blood test results, and that’s if they are willing to do so.

Years ago, as part of my ‘Urban-Holistic-Rasta-Metaphysics’ approach to health, I felt that it was my responsibility to understand the reports, how seriously to take its results, and what things to do to ensure accurate tests in the future.

Too often the results were given to me as vital health information but often were never explained. I did not know what the various measurements meant, beyond the information I received about those numbers which were outside of ‘normal ranges’. Hell, they didn’t really explain what ‘normal ranges’ meant.

We are not adequately advised on how to prepare for our blood test to ensure that the results are not skewed by our lifestyle and habits days or hours prior to taking the tests. We are told to fast for lipid and glucose tests but are often unadvised on other factors that can skew blood results or cause false positives.

Lard Today, Grease Tomorrow! – Devirusize With Cooking Oils – 6 Ways To Evaluate Good & Bad Oils – Don’t Restock UR Oils Until U Read This!

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens. This is the third installment and it is on the oil that we consume in our diets.

In the first two posts, I presented the importance of the Sun, and Water and how it impacts our health and immunity. In this post, I present the importance of the quality of the oils that we consume.

Prior Devirusize Posts

  1. Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses

  3. De-Virusize With Water – Who Would A Thunk Dat Water Heals – De-Virusize Immunity With God’s Healing Waters

Oils have gotten a bomb rap from misinformation. Most of the misinformation is intended to boost corporate profits, product unnatural shelf life, and to sustain mass processed food production.

I hope to dispel rumors and urban legends about oils, the first of which is that all oils that we consume are bad. All oils or fats are not bad. We must consume certain in our diet because the body cannot produce them.

I am eager to also dispel that canola oil is not good. It’s trash for the body, due to all the techniques and chemicals used to refine it. Lard is better than canola, of course, when used modestly.

Corona We Know Whatz Bad – So Whatz Good? – The Positive Side Of The Coronavirus – There’s Always Something Good

I have come to learn that nothing is totally bad in life.  This belief even applies to the Coronavirus.  I will show you its positive sides in a list of good things that will ultimately result from us enduring through this pandemic. 

We tend to see only the negative aspects of challenges because that is what we are dealing with in the present moment.  We have become accustomed not to expect the positive aspect, though it is inevitable.  We don’t see anything positive because we do not look beyond the surface.

But based on my life experiences, often my worse trials and challenges resulted in unforeseen good, which was ultimately realized many years later. 

  • Being very ill made me more conscious about taking better care of my health and lifestyle.
  • Being an insecure people-pleaser for years, through disappointment and pain, lead me to confidence, better self-worth, and self-love.
  • Losing nearly all of my material possessions, becoming bankrupt to care for my elderly mother, humbled me. Now I need less, have less, and am happier.

Experiences like these are what changed how I evaluate trials.  I am constantly looking for the good in bad or good situations.

“Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up.” – Ryan Reynolds


God really is good, all the time. 

If you look for a silver lining in every situation, it will be there.  I believe that exemplifies the belief that God’s understanding is mightier than ours.  The infinity of God’s understanding goes far beyond whatever negative emotions that we may experience at the time.

“Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” – Psalm 147:5 – NKJV

We often focus on what we experience in the present never realizing that present pain ultimately leads to reward, discernment, and joy someday in the future.  Today’s rain will lead to blooming flowers.

De-Virusize With Water – Who Would A Thunk Dat Water Heals – De-Virusize Immunity With God’s Healing Waters

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens.

In the last, and first post, I presented the importance of the Sun, and how it affects your health and immunity. The Sun can be a double-edged sword. It offers magnificent health benefits but can damage your health if we are not safe and prudent, while in the sun.

In this post, the second of the Devirusize series, I present the importance of water consumption, relative to your health. Everyone knows that drinking water benefits their health. Even I was surprised at all of the health benefits of water. Most of them, I knew about, but some I did not.

As with the Sun, too much water can harm you. I have had an experience, while caring for my elderly mother, with the harmful effects of drinking too much water. But this threat is not as likely or severe as harm from getting too much Sun.

I have written other posts on the health benefits of water. They are listed at the bottom of this post. I used very little material from those articles so that I would find updated information and research.

This post, along with the two prior ones will keep you busy for a while. It covers a lot of ground, therefore I leaned towards providing information in bullets. You may click on the links for greater details contained in research studies, articles, and videos. Kevy

Devirusize Urself With Da Sun

In the first post of this series, I will discuss one aspect of Devirusizing, properly using the sun.

I spend time in the sun as much as I can.  Colorado has about 360 Days of sun each year, even when it snows.  After preparing this intensely researched post, I am much more educated about the sun.

The new information I gained was quite enlightening and will result in me adjusting my habits, as I hope will be the case for you.  You may just learn sumthin.

Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses

Over the past few days, my mind has been marinating on a catchy way to present holistic health protocols that I have found to be very successful, after over 30 years of personal practice.  I knew that the first one would be on The Sun since it has been really sunny here in Colorado.  Higher altitudes receive more intense sunlight.

The reason that it has been a challenge to come up with an angle is that holistic healing involves many facets and perspectives, and therefore has a lot of areas to cover.

I do not want to overwhelm those who may be interested in learning more with too much, even though it will still be too much.  I knew that I had to present it in pieces, though. 

At first, I had ideas like The Ten Commandments of Health, The Holistic Health Bible, Holistic Health Verses & Scriptures.  I then thought, ahh, no, I may offend even more people.

So, I invented a new word. Continue reading “Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses”

I Knew This Day Would Come But Didn’t Expect It To Be Today – It Must Be The Grounding!

I knew that after taking as much time off as I needed, I would one day return to posting on the blog. 

I never stop writing, but most of it is personal or pieces I share in writing workshops.  Otherwise, I’ve been very private about my writing.  I have a great deal that I have yet to share.

This is why I often say that I write when I want to.  My writing tends to reveal my deepest feelings and in opening up that much, I must ‘feel’ doing so in my spirit before I really can.

Well, today is one such day! I think I may have mustered up the courage to write again.


I recently endured through a very challenging life trial, the first of its kind for me.  I went from worry, to fear, to awakening, and breakthrough, over the past few months.  Nonetheless, I held true to writing.  Most of it was written in private on my smartphone as draft emails that were never sent.

Until I get into the full swing of blogging regularly, I ask that you bear with me. 

I really have been through a great deal, really.  I am, though, once again changed.

I feel spiritually transformed in an even greater way.  The primary reason is that during my trials, as with this recent one, I found myself coping alone, after disappointedly expecting at least a small entourage of support from those around me.

And it each of these trials, I ultimately surrendered to The Lord, totally.  In every case, I was victorious, even when it appeared that I really wasn’t.

I have yet again been vibrationally elevated!  I can feel it but have not yet discerned how the universe wants me to use it.  I am awaiting the answer in a whispered message, at the most unexpected time.

Bear with my blogging because it may seem random.  I will start by sharing some private poetry and try to build full posts around it.

Chillax To Heal Body, Mind & UR Spirit – How To Chill – Become Cooler Than A Fan! – Like Freddie The Lounge Lizard

Become Like Freddie The Lounge Lizard, But Just For A Day

Have you ever met someone who is ultra-chillax?  They don’t let anything upset them.  They are the kind that repeats mantras like “Child, I can’t be bothered”, or “Life is too short”. 

I’ve admired those type of people for years.  I’ve seen this attitude most vividly in the ghettos and projects of New Orleans.  Though we struggled and suffered, we never let it cramp our spirit.

On my mother’s block, there were two families who lived across from each other.  They were on section 8 housing assistance and other aid, and surely struggled to provide for themselves and several kids but seemed pretty joyous every day.  The played music for the neighborhood, even with deejays.  And when one of the kids had a birthday, they celebrated with elaborate house decorations, barbeques, and bouncy houses.

And during the second-line season, no matter the challenges they faced, they were out in the streets dancing with umbrellas and handkerchiefs.

New Orleans is known as The Big Easy for a reason.  Everybody is so chilled.  For me, after returning from world travel, it was a culture shock.  Traffic moves slowly, grocery store cashiers, restaurants, and parades.  But no one’s on edge about it.  

In New Orleans’s black neighborhoods, it is common to hang out in the streets and play your music loud, with a cocktail, and ‘smoke smoke’ to accompany it.  Most people just sit on their shade covered porch and chill.  Just riding through neighborhoods can be quite entertaining, especially when it is not dangerous.

I remember when I had to catch to bus from my high school, Mc Donogh #35, I would arrive at the Magazine and Camp stop and would see a family sitting on the porch, about 4 of them, each with a plate, having dinner, watching the traffic as it passes by.  It was like clockwork.   They would always be there. They ‘felt no pain’ about it either.

In New Orleans chilling is part of the culture.  But, now I live in the Rocky Mountain Region.

I can’t chill that way every day, as I used to in New Orleans, but I carry with me the knowledge of knowing how important it is to just chill.

Relaxing is healthy for the mind, body, spirit, and soul.  It is just as much health maintenance as doing a detox.  Relaxing, in its highest form is meditation.  But you don’t have to meditate to reap the benefits of relaxing.

SHARE! – Flipping The Script on Conventional Healing – Not Abandoning It – Just Complementing It With Truth

I have a rather difficult time explaining holistic healing to friends and people I meet. 

“When I stand before thee at the day’s end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing.” ― Rabindranath Tagore


Those who follow conventional medicine are always looking for a cure for this or that.  When in actuality they are relieving a symptom, never addressing the underlining problem, and as a result, may actually be causing your body additional harm.

Conventional medicine focuses on symptoms, which is the smallest part of the equation.  Symptoms could also be related to diet, nutrition, stress, emotions, oneness, and toxins, including people, but conventional medicine doesn’t seem to give these aspects of illness much attention.

Conventional medicine does not consider God’s influence either, and how strongly we believe.  It does not consider miracles or the magical, but many unexplained miracles occur.  Ironically, doctors are aware of things that they just can’t explain, but may not talk about such exceptional cases.  I am here to tell you conclusively that such medical exceptions do exist.  I am one of them.

Conventional medicine does not look at the “whole” picture, body, mind, and spirit.

It is unfortunate because there are very promising aspects of conventional medicine, which are complementary to natural healing.  For example, in trauma care, there isn’t a tea, vitamin, plant, or guided meditation that will relieve and heal, say a gun wound, a broken limb, or cardiovascular trauma caused by careless living.

Conventional medicine uses the best diagnostic tools.  I rely on blood lab work, MRIs, x-rays, urine, and stool tests, when they are necessary.  But relying on these investigative protocols does not mean that I will always follow the treatment.  Continue reading “SHARE! – Flipping The Script on Conventional Healing – Not Abandoning It – Just Complementing It With Truth”

Get UR Laugh On – Become Healthier & Balanced – Let’s Laugh Together

Laughter is Critical to Healing

I am not as much into health, as I am into healing. 

I see the difference in the former aiming to address a specific ailment, whereas the latter aims to immerse you in healing energy, creating an environment that repels illness, in any form it may appear.  Healing enfolds me in an energy of health.

Healing goes much deeper than being healthy.  Healing requires balance and vibrational, physical, spiritual, emotional, and nutritional connectivity, just to list a few of its many aspects.

In my healing strategy both balance, and vibrational connection are given the highest priority.

With regard to balance in resting, I do not work too diligently, without attentively ensuring that I get proper rest.  I try to rest at least 8 hours a day.    I consciously work to balance the two.

The same applies to eating healthy, juicing, fermenting, consumption of smoothies, and herbal and root helpful foods, I must balance this lifestyle practice too.  I will never place myself in a ‘food prison’ and expect healing.  I allow myself to deviate from time to time, and don’t beat up on myself for being human.

I learned the importance of balance namely through working with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctors and acupuncturists.  I’ve been seeing TCM practitioners for over 20 years now.  I had acupuncture just this week.

The practice of TCM believes in staying in harmony with nature.  The practice believes in seasons, as well, not just in the atmosphere, but in our body, spirit, and emotions.  I strongly believe in seasons and its impact on my life.  I’ve written about seasons on several occasions.

“According to the teachings of Chinese Medicine, an important principle to leading a healthy life is that of balance.  Living a life of balance affords us longevity. One of the ways of achieving balance is by mirroring the energy of the seasons. Everything in nature is composed of yin and yang energy.”  – Living Life in Balance with Chinese Medicine by Syd Acu | Apr 9, 2013 | Durango Chinese Medicine, Durango Colorado Acupuncture


The last few posts touched painful memories. 

It was also painful to revisit my mistakes and flaws.  But, I was courageous in that I did, for the benefit of others, and to maintain my integrity.  After I published the posts on the “Mess Age”, I felt invigorated, and relieved.

After, a day or so, that feeling wore off, and I started feeling a bit melancholy.

My internal balance calibrator signaled that I had not had a good laugh and needed a few laughs to remain in the realm of healing.  Continue reading “Get UR Laugh On – Become Healthier & Balanced – Let’s Laugh Together”

Benefits Of The Lightbulb In The Sky – Don’t Throw Shade – Let It Shine

The Sun Is Good For You & All Living Things

I have always known that the sun is good for me.

Living in New Orleans, as I child, I don’t remember my mother ever warning me to stay out of the sun, maybe drink water, and don’t overheat.

Nor, did she put sunscreen all over my body, as mothers do today.

Interestingly, there wasn’t much talk about skin cancer, or the sun causing it, in those days.

I never believed the hype being propagated about the sun for one simple fact. The sun sustains all life. We would not be able to survive without the sun. Life would not have begun had the sun not penetrated through the oceans, turning organisms to plants and marine life, and so on.

In the past, the sun was regarded as a divine power, and was equated to God.

Nowadays, the sun seems to be regarded as our enemy. I, however, still believe that the sun is divine. I hope that I can convince you, if you’re not already convinced.

While walking, I pray, and usually stop to sit under a tree to meditate, then to get writing inspirations. Trees inspire me. I’ve written several poems on trees.

Soaking in the sun is a very creative, healing, and spiritual experience for me. After taking these excursions, I instantly feel rejuvenated in body, mind, and spirit. When I get home and look in the mirror, my skin glows in health and vibrancy.
