Oranges are good this time of year. This is my favorite way to eat them....freshly squeezed orange juice. There is nothing better. I have a little citrus juicer that makes the job easy.

|The ingredients for making the laundry detergent.|
Here are the recipes:
Bring 1/2 gallon of water to a boil then add 1/3 of the Fels-Naptha bar shredded. Bring it back to a boil. Once the soap is melted, add 1/2 cup of Borax and 1/2 cup of Washing Soda. Boil for 5 minutes and stir. Put this into a large bucket of some sort and add 1-1/2 gallons of cold water. Stir. Let it sit for 30 minutes and stir. Pour into two gallon containers. (I used empty bleach bottles). Use 1/2 cup per load. This makes enough detergent to do 64 loads. It averages about five cents per load.

When it comes to living the simple, natural life we have to want it more than anything. The main motivation is to wake up and live at the highest level we are capable. Health is the by-product. The good thing about our sickness and discomfort is that it forces us to look at what we are doing wrong. At that point, we have to choose to cover up and suppress the symptoms we are experiencing or to accept responsibility and choose the path of peace which involves doing whatever it takes to address the cause of our problems.
If this doesn't make you get excited, I don't know what will. You can have a great life and get healthy. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't, not even your doctor. Don't accept that there is no cure. You can without a doubt clean out your organs, glands and tissues and get healthy if you are willing to take the road less traveled. It may take some time, but what's wrong with that? We didn't get in this condition overnight, and we won't correct the problems overnight. But we will begin to improve almost immediately. Actually, the journey itself is a joy. I have never had so much fun as I have since I started practicing this way of living.
To health and happiness.
