"While there, he'd heard about a famous centenarian living in the countryside and decided to investigate. Arriving at the centenarian's village, he realized that all he had was the woman's name, no address. "I saw this healthy-looking woman walking down the street with a hoe, looking like she was on her way to farm," Suzuki told me later. "So I stopped to ask her if she'd heard of the centenarian woman. She said, T am her.' I could not believe it! She looked like a woman of 70. But later I did the investigation and it was true."

"Her brief time with Ushi led to a transition, helping her change from being a chronically stressed, marginally healthy professional to becoming a more serene, physically fit person living a life that matches her values. Maybe you're ready to listen too. Who knows? It may change your life just as profoundly."

"The average American, however, by living a fast and furious lifestyle, pushes that accelerator too hard and too much. This book is about discovering the world's best practices in health and longevity and putting them to work in our lives. Most of us have more control over how long we live than we think. In fact, experts say that if we adopted the right lifestyle, we could add at least ten good years and suffer a fraction of the diseases that kill us prematurely. This could mean an extra quality decade of life!"

"Or do you spend the spare hours living somewhere else in imagination? The Marchioness of Londonderry, an English battleaxe, visited Russia in the 1830s, during the reign of another Czar whom I dislike, Nicholas I. She wrote a journal which is among Drue's books and, like Cornelie, she met officers: I never saw education so carefully attended to nor so much observance of duty and respect to decorum. The good of all this system is seen in the conduct of the young people . .. discipline is early introduced among the boys and submission, respect and obedience impressed."

"A belief is a living dream with an emotional signature populated by specific agreements that define and defend its point of view. Have you ever met anyone who is nervous about things, can't trust anyone, and feels they have to watch their back? That outlook is a belief that knows, without a doubt, I'm not safe. How many little sayings, strategies, unseen behaviors, and stories do you think can come out of that point of view? You're right, there are thousands! Those are the agreements that define and defend its point of view."
- Ray Dodd, BeliefWorks: The Art of living Your Dreams (Get the book.)

"You are living your dream. You are an artist of Life, and your actions, reactions, and the fabric of what you have agreed to believe are the culmination of your art up to this very moment. Your masterwork. You are, whether you are aware of it or not, the sole operator of your BeliefWorks. And so, how is it going? How is your dream ? The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams. —Oprah Winfrey Stop the World A Each day rushes on with more to do than there is time to do it. A perpetual merry-go-round that never stops so you can get off."

"To notice how your personal filter of beliefs creates the daily life-dream you are living requires awareness of what you actually believe (not what you'd like to believe) and how that distorts or enhances what you experience. What we think we believe is often an opinion we are addicted to defending, not what is really driving our behavior. Okay, how do I discover what I actually believe? What does it take to reveal the underlying invisible agreements I made long ago that are now running my life? It's not that difficult. Just look around you. ţDo you have enough money or very little of it ?"

"Be a living proof against, in Donne's words, "a stupid standing under an affliction." 10 A last glance at my argument. I have argued on the basis of instinct that subconscious processes of healing will be energised less by "a rigid standing under an affliction" than by a wish to participate "in decisions of endless creation." Instinct was my own guide, but subsequently I have read a small amount concerning psy-choneuroimmunology. There are scientists and clinicians who scarcely accept psychoneuroimmunology."

"MD, MRCGP says: 'Nutritionally aware physicians are few and far between, especially when it comes to factors such as the subtle energies of living plants and plant enzymes which are . . . covered by the Kentons' [p. 10]. Result? When you need a physician, none can be found." Rachel plans to stay with friends in Wiltshire and I am to go to Scotland. But I will have to travel alone, and my car is up north. Can I face the train? I am not having bad dreams, but has the French cancer Professor really gone? Will a train bring him back? I am scared."

"If Reid's experiments were valid, his work provided a paradigm for applying the logic of universal living memory to physical chemical systems. If we take salt and dissolve it in water, and then take a drop of the solution and place it on a slide, as the water evaporates, it will leave telltale salt crystals of generally replicable shapes and sizes."

"Belief: A living dream with an emotional signature populated by specific agreements that define and defend its point of view. BeliefWorks: The human belief factory, fashioning a personal dream of life that touches every word we say, every thought we think, and every move we make. Our private BeliefWorks manufactures the prism through which we see life and magically transforms "what is" into what we believe it is. Dreaming Mind: The part of our mind that perceives without words and records an impression of the inexpressible essence of the moment."

"My next living proof is about thought. Be proof against "proof" Be proof against the concept of proof in the sense of being cautious if consultants bully you with it. If your consultant shares the spirit of David Weatherall, Professor Souhami and Dr. Tobias, you will not be bullied. Pray God this may be so. But the "cancer mentality" that Dr. Dossey identifies is, in his experience, widespread. It is not hard to find similar accounts. Simon Carr found that the manner of cancer doctors seems "to be designed to crush you into submission" (Simon Carr, The Boys Are Back in Town, p. 44)."

"That is a truly desirable manner of living. Sometimes it seems that our joyous holiday or regular dinner conversations revolve around nagging health ailments that constantly interfere with living. George now has gout, Grandma has diabetes, Suzy has irritable bowel syndrome, and your sister complains that she can't lose those last ten pounds (well, maybe twenty), even on the latest deprivation diet. In response and without fail, someone at that dinner table always comes up with a home remedy or a wonder food, heard about from a friend, that is sure to cure the ailment."

"And the skulls of those living on modern foods revealed teeth filled with cavities and jaws that were misshapen and too small for the teeth (Dr. Weston Price's seminal 1939 book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, contains many pictures that dramatically illustrate this phenomenon). Then came fermentation and salting. Grains were fed to livestock, making them fatter but also changing the quality of their meat and their fat."

"It's time to revisit the low-carb wisdom of the past, evaluate the wisdom of the present, and see what they have to teach us about living healthily in the twenty-first century. Why Low-Carb Diets Work In other fields, when bridges do not stand, when aircraft do not fly, when machines do not work, when treatments do not cure, despite all the conscientious efforts on the part of many persons to make them do so, one begins to question the basic assumptions, principles, theories, and hypotheses that guide one's efforts. —Arthur R. Jensen, Ph.D."

"Folks, low-carb living is not dangerous. And it works. Maybe not for everybody. Maybe not in every situation. (Remember, I'm the guy who has been preaching for the last fifteen years that everybody's different and that no one diet works for everyone). But a low-carb diet works for many, many people. A large percentage of the people who are consciously controlling their carbs report that they find the diet easy to stay with. The enormous number of new lower-carb products on the market has afforded us more choices and variety."

"People living in the United States and in western Europe have been found to have much higher estrogen levels at much younger ages than people living in less industrialized countries. Many experts link these high levels of estrogen to environmental exposure. Estrogen-like hormones in the foods we eat and the chemicals we use every day are often hidden causes of estrogen dominance. These estrogen-like hormones mimic the action of the estrogen produced in our bodies. We are exposed to them through certain chemicals (xenoestrogens) and through specific types of foods and plants (phytoestrogens)."

"I realized that such ideas, on first hearing, sounded a bit crazy, and the implications sounded even crazier. I realized that some of my colleagues in psychology and psychiatry would "rush to judgement" and accuse me of having too many loose associations—loose conceptual screws. Though they hadn't read, and would likely never read, the monumental integrative work that provided the logic for Stage L, which in turn leads to Stage E, they might still condemn me out of hand."

"Stage L), ?to the thesis that all systems, from the micro to the macro, including the "laws" of science themselves, are in a state of constant evolution (the emerging Stage E). Interestingly, the four stages in science seem to be lagging behind the four stages in religion. Is scientific knowledge continually attempting to catch up with evolving spiritual wisdom? The four stages (S) are summarized in Table 1 below: Table 1: Four Stages in Religion and Science Basic Concept Religion Science !"

"There are boards specifically for Atkins, the Zone, the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet, the Fat Flush Plan, Protein Power, and Somer-sizing, as well as a more general board for low-carb living and recipes. Very recommended: www.ivillage.com/diet 3fatchicks: This is one of the better community sites. It's not technically a low-carb-exclusive site—it's really a very information-dense support site for people who need to lose weight—but it has a lot of low-carb info. The three women who started it don't seem to have any agenda and aren't pushing any program."

"As you will see, there are reasons to hope and to dream. New voyages are being readied. In chapter 14, we return to Linda's question "Is my father still alive?" and consider whether it is scientifically possible to resurrect the reputation of God. In the afterword, we explore "what's wrong with the hypothesis" addressing nine categories of possible criticism, and we explain why systemic memory theory is both "interesting" and "amusing." In the Epilogue, we return to the concept of integrity in science and love, and the expanding new horizons of discovery that await humankind."

"Alan Greene, a Stanford University pediatrician, describes the placenta as a "free-flowing, living lake" inside mothers from which the umbilical cord draws nourishment for the fetus. Because of chemical absorption by mothers, this living lake has become contaminated, says Greene, and developing babies in today's world "mainline the contaminants through their umbilical cord, injecting them into their veins more potently than any IV drug administration." ((5) Why should we be so concerned by these findings about fetal exposure to chemicals?"

"What good is living longer if we can't enjoy emotional and physical wellness and a full life? Applied to its fullest potential, high-nutrient eating can be the most effective therapy to reverse diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. It is the powerful medicine to get you well and keep you well in later life. Achieving good health through healthful living is your most important investment and it will pay you back with tremendous interest in your later years. This book will make the commitment to that investment much easier."

"You're going to love living it. Bonus Chapter Seeing Things in a New Way My guess is that now that you've discovered the remarkable power available to you when you unleash your mind, you're not quite ready to stop. If that's the case, you might enjoy the "bonus" I've prepared for you: one last mental skill that can enhance your life. Let's start with a quick exercise that will offer you a chance to explore the potential of acquiring vision skills—the ability to see electromagnetic energies. It's good to wait to do this one until you go to sleep at night, as this works better when it's dark."

"In all likelihood, you'd give me details about where you were born, how you grew up, the house you moved to when you were twelve, where you went to school, what you do for a living, and so on. Maybe you'd tell me about your first love or your first heartbreak. But would you tell me about the signal events that made you who you are now? Probably not, because you're most likely not even conscious of these. Most people aren't. For example, consider one of my patients from 1997. Erin, a successful healthcare professional, flew in to see me from St. Paul."

"Over the course of this book, you will learn that you are living in a box determined by your brain and your mental conditioning, and you will discover the tools to free yourself from the limitations of that box. About five years ago, I was sitting in a beautifully renovated playhouse in Greensboro, North Carolina, watching my daughter play the lead role of Maria in West Side Story. It was a fathet's dream come true. She was fantastic, seemingly right there in Spanish Harlem, standing on a fire escape on the second floor of a tenement building."

"These are the reasons I'm sick," you'll say, "not some vague concept about some story I'm living out." If you feel this way now, I ask you to stick with me because I'll prove that you're not seeing things as clearly as you think you're seeing them. All of the issues above might be relevant to the onset of suffering, but they are not the only causes of illness. More importantly, they are not keys to a cure. The key comes in a simple but powerful revelation that I will repeat often in this book: disease in the body starts with dis-ease in the mind."

"Living in a mindful state may be likened to living in a transparent house. In the houses in which most of us now live, if we were in the living room and needed an object (idea) that was in the basement, we might not be aware of its presence. But in our transparent house, objects would be ever available. When in the living room, we could still see the object in the basement even if we chose not to think about it or use it at the moment. If we were taught mmdfully, conditionally, we could be in this ever-ready state of mind."
