|Can you see the pear babies?|
Air, water, food, light, proper temperature, exercise, rest, sleep, freedom from poisons and violence are things we require to maintain life. Although these things are necessary, none of them will produce life. The life force within all living things is always trying to preserve us. We call this self-preservation. This instinct is present in even the smallest microscopic communities of cells. All living things have an instinct for self-preservation. The exception is when an individual will sacrifice himself to protect the young or to preserve the race. The individual will sometimes die trying to defend itself, the young, or the group.
All forces, including the life force, work according to law. This should be encouraging news to those of us working on restoring our health. We can trust that the law of self-preservation is working in our favor as we seek to eliminate everything in opposition to life and incorporate all the requirements for life.
Dr. Fielder's Upcoming Visit
Dr. John Fielder from the Clohesy River Health Farm near Cairns, Australia will be visiting in our area in one month. Dr. Fielder is my mentor and my friend, so it is with joy that we look forward to hosting him.
We have two events planned for him to meet our community. There will be a raw food potluck at my house on Monday, May 18, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to bring a raw food dish to share. After we eat, we will let the doctor have center stage and accept questions from the other guests. It will be a wonderful time to access the wisdom of this natural living expert.
On Tuesday, May 19, 2015, Dr. Fielder will be lecturing on the principles of natural living at the Creative Life Church in Hot Springs.
If you are interested in these events, message me for more information.
