Pursuing Life’s Pleasures


Hello and Good Morning.  It’s Dr. Rob on another awesome day.  I’m up early again.  Life is in the earliness.  You’ve got to be there not only on time, but before time.  If you’re just on time, the real stuff has already begun.  As they say, “The early bird catches the worm,” and “Early to bed and early to rise . . .,”  you know the rest.
You can’t prevent anything, because anything and everything can and will happen.  When you work to prevent something and then it happens , you say “Oh my God, I worked so hard to prevent it and it happened!”  Guess what?  This is life.  You want to pursue the joy of the day. The trend of life is in pursuing happiness, joy, creativity, and as Jon Acuff has given us in Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters:  Get off of the starting line.  Never pursue the finish line, but pursue the moment and joy of the now (Eckhart Tolle, you know).  This is the flow of life.
I’ve been listening to a little bit about bulletproof coffee. Check out bulletproof with Asprey.  He’s talked a lot about the importance of healthy, holistic and clean.  I know that the drive today is really Fat is our Friend.  You’ve got to feed on fatty, friendly foods. Let go of this concept that fat is bad.  If you’re carrying the fat . . . ahh!  sweet energy you have. Let your body use it by fasting for a fertile life – that means water, coffee, and tea, but get rid of the added stuff.  You don’t need it.  Add some butter – whole organic grass fed.  That’s it.
Pursue the day.  Let’s say you’re looking at the finish line, because the finish line is a goal. That’s what you’re pursuing, but you know you’re never getting there because the goal is the step you’re on right now. And the next goal is going to be the next step.  You can’t prevent, but you can pursue the joy of God’s gift today in life.  Pursue painting, potting, making jewelry, communicating, reading, writing, walking.  Whatever it is, pursue it with the joy of today and life’s gift is God’s love.  Always.  Breath and smile this day.
The bulletproof idea . . . love it!   But let’s take off the flak jacket.  You can’t bulletproof or prevent anything.  What you want to do is add the joy of life.  The craziness is fat should be our main caloric source! Get rid of all of the fruits and vegetables, the pasta, the bread, the yogurt, the milk and all of the junk.  It turns out, it’s just sugar that is killing us.  Sugar comes from every single carbohydrate. You don’t need to take all of the additives, supplements, and vitamins.  You are in oxidative stress .  That’s the nature of our bodies. The immune system does two things:  (1) it keeps us alive; and (2) it will be the cause of our death.  You can’t prevent that.
Let’s pursue AMAZING today.  Let’s pursue AWESOME.  Let’s pursue JOY.  Let’s pursue whatever we’re pursuing with a smile and recognize that it’s a gift.  The mind is a controller.  It fathoms a body, and now you have the gift to give a smile and joy.  Don’t run away from or toward something.  Appreciate and see the moment you are in right now.
Let’s re-inspire ourselves with the joy of the work we are doing today.  Let’s enjoy where we’re at and what we’re doing right now.  Many things are happening in the world.  Sometimes it’s a whirlwind.  The wind is always moving, and we’re part of the wind.  The joy is wherever you’re at and whatever you’re doing.  Love it!
This is Dr. Rob. Mind Body Smile. We’re blowing it up and making changes.  Check out www.dietdoctor.com and bulletproof coffee ( https://www.bulletproofexec.com/how-to-make-your-coffee-bulletproof-and-your-morning-too/ ).  Blessings and joy this day!
-Dr. Rob
