The proverb, “curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back,” is very appropriate at this time. This proverb points to the idea if you are too curious or inquisitive it can be dangerous. If you reach too far into matters that don’t concern you, you may find yourself in danger and may die. However, once you discover the truth, it shall set you free.

Have you found yourself questioning what’s true and what isn’t? It’s amazing how fear of the unknown, constant propaganda, and fear mongering can slowly but surely push people to do things against their own intuition and common sense.

In this day and age with the increasing censorship of most social media platforms, the mainstream media, and various research journals, what is the real truth? The all too touted “trust the science” jargon was used ad nauseam during the beginning of COVID-19, but now there are reports surfacing showing to do just the opposite.

Then on June 14, 2023 the FDA sent companies, Good Meat and Upside, a so-called “no questions” letter which states that the administration is satisfied that their product (cultivated or lab-grown meat) is safe to sell in the United States. If you haven’t heard, lab-grown meat are cells that are grown in a huge vat like the ones you would find in a beer brewery and is synthetic, not real. Supporters say that this is humanely created meat and it helps reduce the impact on the environment, but still, where are the advancements in technology taking us?

This is where I truly believe that we need to stay curious and ask questions about what’s happening in the world, and why certain topics are not being discussed or covered by the mainstream media. I came across a documentary three years back where a gentleman researched all the top stockholders of all the main industries in the world and the same three institutional investors were – Blackrock, State Street Corporation, and Vanguard Inc. Even competitors like Pepsi Co. and Coca Cola Inc. are owned by these top three institutional investors. So what gives? One thing I do know is that those who control the resources and media can script the narrative. The same thing goes to the writing of history – it is always written by the winners and the losers’ accord is usually erased from record.

Become curious about your health and well-being. Don’t just take the words of medical doctors, supposed experts or other healers. Take their recommendations and use your intuition and common sense to make the choice that is right for you. Let your body symptoms and signs be the guide to help give you confirmation and prompt you to be proactive versus reactive to health problems. If you are experiencing health issues, be curious and ask questions instead of using fear to make decisions that may impact the way you live your life. The one thing that I have learned through the years is that healing is actually very simple, but we just make things so darn complicated. Blood tests, body scans, and advanced technologies seem to have taken away from simple common sense. For instance, when someone has high blood pressure, the western treatment is medications that is justified by blood tests and scans instead of finding out what increased stress and pressures the person is experiencing.

You have the power to heal yourself, and by learning to tune in and beginning to trust your body, instead of going to experts to discover what is wrong, can make all the difference. Going back to the basics is what’s called for. Not overthinking will assist you in making the decisions that are right for you. Establish a good sleeping hygiene, hydrate with water, eat nutritious foods, bolster your immune system, monitor your thoughts – focus on the positive and get rid of the negative ones, and know your truth and live by your highest values. It may appear too simple but believe me, knowing what feels right and staying true to yourself is the best medicine in the world. Be present with yourself and your loved ones and live an extraordinary life instead of just living.
