A customized ass-kicking no matter what level you’re at: a wimp like me, or a seasoned gym rat.
It all started when a close male friend of mine texted me, “Want to do something that involves a lot of sweating and grunting?” Dubious, I replied “…sure? Like what–hauling bags of water softener salt?” 😉 He proceeded to throw down the gauntlet and challenge me to a workout routine that could be followed through our phones. It was a great success.

The temple that you are building is a vessel for your consciousness, tend to this vessel with care, because it is sacred.
I’ve been thinking about temples and churches a lot lately.
There’s a few verses in Paul’s letters that mention the concept of a person or a community of people being a temple or a church. Christ is referred to as “the head” and the church is is “body”. Elsewhere, Paul tells us that our bodies are temples, and that god lives within it.
So, how on earth would this be relevant to an atheist? Continue reading “The Temple of Consciousness”
LEVEL ONE : A Weight-Loss Plan for Gamers & People Who Like Numbers
