    We'd love to have you here in Texas. Were you the one asking me about shooting a 50 cal. rifle? That'll take your mind off most things...

    I would still love to see you do a movnat .... and drive yourself physically .... and learn from Erwan....:)

    His brain and his physicality is very important to him..... and honour and honesty and integrity.

    I have a sense that you worry a lot about money? You have said that you have a really good job?

    If this is true, about job... Then you have me in a frame of yesterday. I promise you that going from high roller to broke is not bad, you start to make changes when you let yourself go...

    Audrey don't you think that Erwan is just exercising a different form of control to Hemming? Doing movnat would, for me, be about challenging this tired, fat old body, it would be fun and taxing and many other things, at the end of it, however it turned out, I would be able to settle back into my usual life. Hemming, I think, is missing something from his life, when he moves on, it shouldn't be temporary, he doesn't want to go back to his old self he wants to be like Peter, find the right place that makes him happy and relaxed. It may be under his nose or he may have to move to find it.

    Ok, to make it clear... You can not go back and look back only. I think a couple of steps back is ten steps ahead if you understand what is missing. Like you said, everyone MUST find their own passion. What i do, i would not force anyone into...

    Movnat, is a mindset for me... When someone is making a business of something it gets a little bit to much for me. But in a world of today what he is doing it is most natural... What i would do IF you would like to move and explore the details of live i turn my nose to, Frank Forencich and his http://www.exuberantanimal.com/index.php#.Uy9ln61dV8c

    No - I don't agree Sue .....it is about caring for your brain and body and pushing yourself physically and challenging yourself mentally and physically. ..... but it is done outdoors in nature ....redox potential! It is all done on an individual basis - for each of us to challenge ourself to become a better human .... or to become the human that we want to be. of course we may fall back into our old ways ..... but that isn't what this journey is about ...just my opinion of course!

    Thomas has to find it for himself - of course ....as we all do.
    I just know, for me, when I have been really challenged physically - my mental state soars.....

    It is about resonance, not muscles....consider this story...I believe Wang is 70 and Bruce is 19...


    Taoists train at 70% effort so they never trash their redox and build their vibration/qi/resonance/ez zone over their muscles. When they are advanced, they can move and maintain structure without muscular tension. Tell me how they do that? I have seen it so I know it is possible, cats do it too when they are healthy.

    How fascinating Josh!

    I think maybe we are all saying the same thing in different ways .......

    We ned to change our mind and change our thinking and challenge ourself - whatever way works for us.
    I think any change is better than no change.... baby steps........

    dancing on the edge of your ability ..... that is what I am talking about! How beautiful and fascinating....and the music - wow

    she has so many great thoughts..... Peter- do you know this gorgeous, lovely woman? and the puppet and 24 people working together.... This is life... as it should be.
    I guess I think we need to find that thing that makes us escape our reality sometimes and soar to a new dimension.

    Peter - what a beautiful woman ....she should be wearing a dress tho!!

    I still need to see your eyes!

    dancing is a ride! ... The guy said ..."low hanging fruit" where have we heard that?

    Given my current physical abilities I'm not doing a MovNat :) Some day...

    I worry about money in the sense that it pays my bills. Yes, I do make a pretty good living but I've also found out how incredibly boring money really is. It doesn't matter to me how much money I have on my account as long as I have the freedom to what I want.

    Hehe, that was me. I guy I spoke also said that I could shoot and RPG!

    That's exactly right. I also see MovNat as a vacation kind of thing - not something that fundamentally changes my life.

    @prAna303 I know what you mean about going back in life and realising where I got sidetracked. I did that with a therapist last summer and that opened my eyes to so many things. As I've previously mentioned I think a big part of my eating disorder is the manifestation of PTSD from being home alone with my dad when his heart 'stopped' because of an irregular sinus nerve. Since then I've avoided situations where I'm not in completely control (which is a lot of situations). I can now see how that episode had such a huge impact on my life afterwards.

    Contrary to you, I still need to have that eureka moment where I figure out what I really want.

    Just keep asking questions and you will find answers.

    Yep, I've been working a lot on that by talking to my family and psychiatrist about how things got so sidetracked (and still are). I'm also thinking a lot about why I behave as I do in specific settings and that has also made me realise some things.

    I just got back from vacation with the family and that was also a good opportunity for everyone to connect more and to some extent explain how I feel.

    I haven't updated for a while because I haven't been that good.

    Lately I've felt a general lack of energy and confused in some way. On top of that, I've lost some weight again and I feel like I've relapsed to a lot of the thinking I had 1.5y ago.
    Right now I'm trying to get my head around all these things and figure how I go from here.
