Keystone Habits

New Year’s is traditionally a time to try to break old habits and encourage new ones. We all know that there are positive and negative habits. But did you know that there are a few “keystone” habits that once adopted tend to produce a landslide of other positive changes.   Studies over the last decade show the impact of fitness on people’s daily routines and they have found even exercising infrequently as once a week, start other unrelated patterns in their lives, often unknowingly. People who exercise start eating better adn become more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and feel less stressed. it is not clear why taking time for fitness...

Meditation Reduces Inflammation

Study Shows That Mindfulness Meditation Reduces Inflammation   Inflammation is an underlying issue in many health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma. I have found that psychological stress plays a role in many such conditions. It has been found in a recent study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, that mindfulness meditation techniques can benefit inflammation.   Mindfulness-based stress reduction consists of continuously focusing the attention on the breath, bodily sensations and mental content while seated, walking or practicing yoga. Although there has been interest in the stress reduction ability of meditation for some time, this was the first experiment to compare it to other stress reducing practices that don’t use mindfulness. In the other program there was nutritional education, physical activity and music therapy.   They used...

Thank You Body – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

THANK YOU BODY I’m so grateful body mine You know just what to do Serving me at every time Yourself you can renew The cells, they talk together Through hormones in the blood Which is warm in any weather Life essence through me flood Never ceasing to amaze me Even when I’m sick I realize the necessity Invaders from thee kick When I get out of the way You know just what to eat When I rest and work and play Then you feel complete With what wonder are you made So many living layers A bone, and muscle and skin braid Through you I give my prayers Dear organs, working day and night What payment can I give Your happiness is my delight My life we two shall live Liver, kidney, blessed heart You all know what to do Spleen and brain, oh every part I really love you true And when you’re...

Space – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

SPACE I gaze into the midnight sky So many stars I see Who can know the how and why? Of cosmic galaxy Does time and space have an end? My world is oh so small A thought of awe and wonder send A message to the All Of consciousness all is made Empty space does not exist From pure Love without shade Of this it does consist Energy and life force Condensed or spread apart Within each part dwells the source There is no end or start The being who ensouls the sun An average star, they say Shall a galaxy become For that is nature’s way Beyond the universe AM I Transcend all finite form Yet answer every child’s cry And make all Life reborn   In quasars AM I singing In pulsars do I shine In wedding bells I’m ringing Everything’s divine...

Perfection that I AM – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

Perfection that I AM How can I accept myself For all the wrongs I’ve done How can I find the peace And feel not two but one The more I try the more I fail And soon failure I expect In self fulfilling prophecy That’s exactly what I get But maybe the perfection that I know that I can be Isn’t found in outer world But just alone in me The cherishment I’ve craved for From family, friends or food Can never fill my loneliness Or forever lift my mood What if I first love myself Knowing God is on my side And let go all my worries That in peace I might abide And hear that still, unspoken voice That thunders in my heart It’s not what you say or what you do You’re loved for what thou art For once upon a mountain A brave and humble man Asked God...

Omnipresent Air – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

OMNIPRESENT AIR We see the trees a swaying In the gentle breeze The swooping of the robin The very soul is pleased But something that is unseen Lies underneath the scene ‘Tis not the branch that moveth But the space that’s in between The things, they draw attention Seeing not the air around Is not this also substance But never as renowned This nothing some have called the Tao The source behind all flow Directly may be experienced But never really known The wind that drives the tempest Or floats the feather down Could this all be a symbol of The Spirit all around When the mind is silent An empty windless sky No separate forms there seem to be But a glimmer of the Why Enter in this sacred space Perceive, but do not name Be the Oneness, beyond all form You’ve just begun the Game...

Into the World – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

Into the World All was dark and peaceful The thumping was my time Waking, floating, dreaming Not yet was me or mine But once there was a pressure A squeezing from behind My muffled liquid ruptured The light near made be blind Was then I screamed with all my might And inbreathed my first air And felt a flame burn in my heart A caress on my hair A hush, then ooh and ahh was heard “Indeed it is a boy” ‘Tis cold, then my first big warm hug And this nipple my first toy Then they cut my lifeline Through belly drink I breathed Hunger felt for the first time I knew what to do it seemed I opened wide my grasping lips And sucked with all my might So sweet and warm with tenderness Seemed like nectar liquid light Occasionally I looked around A voice or two I knew But...

Inner Truth – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

INNER TRUTH O truth how shall I find thee? No two seem to agree The errors seem to bind me All I want is to be free I’ve searched in churches many Read a multitude of books But still have not found any That haven’t any hooks But when I close my eyes and pray There' a burning in my heart I feel that flame will light my way From there my journey starts First I feel pure wisdom Golden thoughts of light Of my mind I take dominion That I may do what’s right Then I’m charged with power Blue lightning blazing through God’s will I’ll do each hour His purposes so true At last I’m filled with only love Pink fragrant rose of bliss I’ll make this world like that above And heal all that’s amiss With purity of motive Determined to do good My life shining like a votive I’ll...

Infinite Becoming – A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.

INFINITE BECOMING Life exists in all dimensions Beyond all human sight It is one, no division Will you shine in the night? Then cast off all your concepts Admit you don’t know snuff Go beyond the outer precepts See past accumulated stuff I AM the life within you That beats your very heart Made your shining Earth, so blue And planned it from the start That you could have a place to live And stretch your heart and mind To learn that all must give And serve and to be kind First the center of one form Then a family And on and on to be reborn The heart of galaxy You ask, is there an end? This becoming, all the time The answer: to transcend Be one – spirit,  soul and mind...
