Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

The way of Nature Mother Nature provides. Listen to her voice. Listen to her instructions. Her voice is part of you. She will tell you what to do. Use her elements to stay fit and healthy.

Every day we need to challenge ourselves to stay fit. Without this challenge, there is no growth. Without this challenge, a gradual decline begins. We need to challenge our cells. We need to challenge our mobility. We need to challenge our strength. We need to challenge our immunity. We need to challenge our mind. There are many ways to practice these challenges.

Two sides of the coin.

Yin and Yang or the aspect of duality is present in everything. Male/Female, Day/Night, Dark/Light etc. etc. It is no surprise then, that our daily cultivation includes both elements. We are not trying to find some imagined quality of neither Yin nor Yang. Quite the opposite – embrace both as an integral part of life.

The best exercise system is the one that works for you and can be sustained indefinitely. The best diet is the one that works for you and can be sustained indefinitely. The best health habits are the ones that work for you and can be sustained indefinitely.

Every day is a test.

Whether one is a lawyer, doctor, worker in the factory or an artist, black or white, poor or rich it is of little consequence for the level of happiness that can be experienced by that person.
