Direct Your Focus on Health and Wealth

Direct Your Focus on Health and Wealth

The materialistic-instant gratification-pop culture mentality of many people today is truly astonishing.

If they see it they want it… now. What’s important? Who is the next to leave on American Idol, who is kicked off the island in Survivor, what is my favorite actor up to today?

What’s not important? What are you reading, what are you eating, what medicines are you taking, what is your government doing today to take more of your hard-earned fiat money and perpetuate the fraud that is the government finance system?

The difference in people is how they think. The difference in what people think is what they read. The difference in what they read is how much they read. How much they read is how close to reality they are.

It is so planned that billions of people should live and die and never know or experience reality.

The crowd can be described with one word—frivolous. The people are little children whose existence is prescribed by the system. Yes, our parameter of existence is prescribed because our parameters of thought are prescribed.

Who are the people of the system? They are almost everybody. They are the common folk. They are the professional class. They are, for the most part, the financial class.

A few get through the net to reality.

And most people who climb the economic scale are decoyed and diverted with materialism. Their existence becomes totally dominated by the desire to accumulate material wealth.

Riches are wonderful. They please the flesh but they are a blinder that most often blocks escape to reality. Materialism, properly placed, brings balance and quality time to life. Materialism is a tool, not an end, lest we worship at the altar of mammon.

There is an appalling difference between reality people and people of the system. Frivolous people have their existence on frivolous thoughts and frivolous talk.

My focus is on health and wealth—properly balanced. It is impossible to have one without the other.

Good health is where you can find it. It is seldom found within the sickness system or "orthodox medicine." It is most likely to be found in alternatives.

People can be measured by their proclivity toward alternative health. This is the same as saying their disbelief of pharmaceutical medicine. The more we progress to alternative health the closer we come to reality.

Pharmaceutical medicine is by no definition a health system. It is in every way a commercial business based on profits. Not one doctor in 10,000 suspects this. So tight is the psychological control of the medical system that no amount of persuasion or logic can dislodge it.

The professional medical class is money-motivated and it lusts after the pharmaceutical system, totally unconscious of the realism of human health. A drug system is incompatible with the health of man and animal.

Wealth is long-term value. It most definitely is not the diminishing, deflating paper money system that everyone thinks of as money and wealth.

Silently, a new war has been declared on all people who hold paper money assets. The paper money monster called depreciating paper is consuming more and more while we sleep.

He who builds his fortune, his savings and retirement upon a paper money foundation builds his house upon the sands. This syndrome is no different from the drug addict who plans his existence upon acquiring the next fix.

Think of transferring your existence from pharmaceutical drugs and paper money to life and reality above the "madness of the crowd" while you can.

    Okay, I remember back when I was just a little guy & both of my grandmothers grew what they called “yarb” gardens. Which was where they grew the medicinal herbs neccasary for keeping their families healthy.
    Once these 2 elderly ladys finally passed on, the rest of the families started relying on manufactured medicines instead. Some how though, not one of my aunts or uncles seems to have stayed nearly as healthy in their “golden years” as my grandparents did!
    One other thing I clearly remember is one of those grandmothers telling me that when she was young, women ruled the world, & did it from their kitchens!!
    Their kitchens weren’t just places where dinner was cooked, but where food was preserved, medicines were made, children (& sometimes husbands) were patched up when injured, & so forth.

    Dead on and nicer put than I tend to say it these days.

    We are a nation of sheep, being led by the corrupt and robbed by the barons.

    And no one can muster the work needed to care.

    Somewhere in our “high tech” economy we began to equate “high tech” with “no actual work”. Which leads us to today.

    We are a nation of pansies that cannot be bothered to create strong lives and families. We are a nation of “bling” purchased from China with debt fueled dollars.

    And yet most experts continue to speak of “bottom”.

    Thanks again for a great article Bob.

    Nearly everyone when you say to them, “It’s a crazy world we live in” will wholeheartedly agree, but do they know how really true that is? Not really. Our current government is a prime example. They are doing the exact opposite of what they could and should be doing for this country to revive the economy. In fact, they are doing nothing more than exacerbating it, and that is insanity. The problem is that it’s not recognized as insanity by the majority, because sanity is defined by the majority, and when the majority behaves in irrational, destructive ways, it becomes the accepted as sane behavior. Okay, maybe I’m being a little too harsh on the Obama administration. Maybe it’s really just a simple matter of selfish greed and lust for power – as if that’s any better!

    Yes Bob, most of us are “sheeple”. And I agree with you about health professionals and the industry, i.e. “Pharmaceutical medicine is by no definition a health system. It is in every way a commercial business based on profits. Not one doctor in 10,000 suspects this. So tight is the psychological control of the medical system that no amount of persuasion or logic can dislodge it.” (I would add financial control to that sentence.) My wife, who is a nurse, can’t even distinguish what is bunk and what is healthful.

    I was going create a 1-2 hour seminar or discussion (that I could charge for) on the evils of the pharmaceutical industry, but, as you pointed out, most people wouldn’t know the difference and as you would say, they are “frivolous. And having only a few people in the audience would be disheartening. Let’s not even go into what the pharmaceutical or FDA goons would do.

    So, keep up the good work.

    Hi Bob,

    I agree with your article. I was fortunate that my parents were open-minded enough to look into alternative means of preventative health care in the early 70s when, in our pre-teen years, my brother and I had increasingly severe health challenges. We began to eat wholesome foods and to take nutritional supplements and to drink pure water. I even read up on Paul C. Bragg’s books on fasting and apple cider vinegar. Also, Norman Walker’s books on pure water.

    Our health turned around and I became quite outspoken about the ills of a poor diet and the false medicine designed to perpetuate the illness, not correct it.

    So, almost 40 years later, I can say that I’ve learned a lot and live what I preach, which shows up in contrast to neighbors and friends who have not been so fortunate.

    God bless you for your advocacy for a lifestyle that is not dependent on the misinformation and unreality of the mass consciousness in our society. America can be healthy and prosperous, if we can return to God and the Golden Rule.

    Dear Bob,
    Thank you for another eye-openning article. God bless you for speaking the truth. I hope many people here get to read and digest this article. I know that we have been brain washed to believe in a system of synthetic medicines which we end up get more complications such as the side effects from all those so-called medications. We are cripplely-medicated. There is another natural way to get healed without being poisoned at the same time and yet a few access it.
    My brother said well that “we are being surrounded with nets”. But I am hopeful that more and more people will break out of that pre-programmed mindset to get themselves healed.
    Don’t get me wrong, I have tried prescribed medications, and I got horrible side-effects. It would be great if we can combine science and alternative to deal with health issues.
    Just make sure to eat the right, natural food, and good drinking water, and excercise.
