Why I Don’t Take Deep Breath

Majid Ali, M.D.

I do not take deep breaths. Why don’t I do so? For a simple reason: deep breaths tight my chest muscles, speed up my heart, tighten arteries, add some adrenaline to my blood. The result of that is less oxygen for my body.

I anticiopate your response: There is something wrong with what you say. Everyone wlse tells me that I should take a deep breath when I need more air. Yes, you do get more air in your lungs but that does not mean more oxygen for your body. Here is something else you need to know. Carbon dioxide travels from capillaries in the lungs to the air sacs in the lungs at about twenty times the speed of oxygen moving in the opposite direction. This explains whuy all the benefits of breathing come from slow exhalation.

The Age of Shrinking Brains

Majid Ali, M.D.

The planet Earth is fermenting. Its inhabitants are fermenting. That includes fermenting humans.

Cellular fermentation is cellular energetic degradation, cellular sickening, and cellular shrinking. That, of course, means shrinking of human brains, first functionally, then structurally. The evidence of this staring at us, in the unborn babies, in toddlers, in children, in adults, and in the elderly. 

 

 

Shapes of Love

 

Majid Ali, M.D.

Love arrives with many faces and in different shapes. Some faces are well masked. Some shapes morph freely.

On April 26, 2014. Earlier I some images of purple balloons floated on a Connecticut beach by seniors of a local high school. They were remembering one of their class fellows: Maren. She was slashed to death by a knife at the hands of a student who wanted her as her school prom companion.
 

I cannot plumb the grief of Maren’s family at the news of her murder. Was that horror a matter of biology or an issue of psychology? Did Maren’s mom process this information at some lofty mental level? Or was her agony profoundly organic? A dark, dark face of profound maternal bonding?

I do not have access to information about Maren’s murderer. What might have enraged one of Maren’s class fellows so as to drive him to her murder? What substances might have been flowing through his blood at that time? Was that a matter of biology or psychology?

A return to my questions in the beginning of this article: A young woman takes a look at her first newborn and experiences intense bonding. Is that a matter of biology or an issue of psychology? Does this bonding arise from months of shared biology or created by some elements of psychology? I am content letting the reader decide how does love fit into the theme of this series

Guru’s Love for the Disciples

History of “gurudoms,” has a harsh indictment for love of gurus for their disciples. It is never uncoditional love, not for too many years anyway. In the end it always degenerates into control of the followers by the guru. The most horrendous episodes of cruelty, torture, and crimes nearly always started with a man—woman rarely could match the evil of men in this field—who successfully cast themselves in the roles of gurus and saviors. Who do I allude to here? What biologic-pathologic conditions were they victims of? I leave these questions to the reader’s mind.

Practitioners’ Love for Patients Is Uneven Love

By “uneven love,” I do not mean uncoditional love. Clearly, some funds will be transfered from the patient to the practitioner, and that is the condition of that love.

Politicians’ Love for Voters

Whose love has been more dangerous in the history – gurus’ love for disciples or politician’s love for voters? Of course, the answer depends upon the readers’ choice of politicians and gurus, in the past or the present.

A Candle’s Love for Anxiety

Have you ever loved a candle? Have you ever experienced the love of a candle? How can you love a candle if you have never tried it? Have can you experience the love of a candle if you have never tried it? Please do not ask me to explain. This is one of the things that cannot be explained. It can only be done, known, and understood.

A Stone Solves the Anxiety problem

Have you ever asked a stone to solve the anxiety problem? Have you ever experienced the love of a stone? How can you love a stone if you have never tried it? Have can you experience the love of a stone if you have never tried it? What stone do I speak about? Where do you find such a stone? Next time you are in a field or a park, or simply walking anywhere, please pick up a stone, take it home, wash it if necessary, and put it where it can keep an eye at you.

 

Anxiety, Love, Biology, and Psychology

 

Majid Ali, M.D

 

 

A young woman takes a look at her first newborn and experiences intense bonding. Is that a matter of biology or an issue of psychology? Does this bonding arise from months of shared biology or created by some elements of psychology? For an answer, we need to consider what psychology is. Here is what, according to Wikipedia, psychology is: “Psychology is an academic and applied discipline that involves the scientific study of mental functions and behaviors. ” So, is the instant mother-baby bonding (and love) the result of shared biology or application of some mental functions and behavior by either of the two?

What Is Love?

Love is a tedious subject. It is best to resist the temptation to write about it. Still many of us cannot do so. Here are some words on the subject taken from my book “Drone Democracy” (available as a download from http://www.aliacademy.org):

Love

Love is to celebrate,
A crystal without creed,
A dew drop without color,
A raven without race,
A river without religion

Love is to be,
A Muslim on Fridays,
A Jew on Saturdays,
A Christian on Sundays,
A Hindu on Mondays,
A Buddhist on Tuesdays,
An agnostic on Wednesdays,
A nobody on Thursdays.

What day,
Makes my day?
Might it be a Thursday?
A day to be a nobody.
 

Thursday,
A day for,
The language of silence,
The commerce of compassion.
A day to live,
A day to love,
A day to be true,
Giddy on life,
A day to be a nobody.

Thursday,
A day for,
For trancing in every shrine,
Far, far,
From the mind of the malign,
Softly, sublimating,
Into the heart of the Divine.
A day for love,
A love,
That only soul can refine.
On the way to be a nobody.

Does anybody ever become a true nobody?

Ambulance Lessons Not Learned Who Promotes Ambulance Trips? – Who Prevent Them? Who Promotes Them?

 

                                    Majid Ali, M.D.

Who can prevent ambulance trips? Who can prevent them? In my case the answer to both questions is the same: Me.

To focus on the week before an ambulance trip awakens one’s “Healer-in-the Mirror.” To focus on the week after an ambulance trip further enriches our disease maintenance system (the “System”). To focus on the week before an ambulance trip awakens one’s “Healer-in-the Mirror.” People who were rushed to a hospital in an ambulance for imagined or real heart attacks, strokes, or organ perforations need to know the real meanings of these statements. In reality they seldom do so.

Every time someone consults me after suffering a heart attack or stroke, I am interested in events during the week before he was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance. Without exception, the patient is even more interested in relating in great detail all the events that occurred during the week after the ambulance ride. I focus on events before the ambulance ride because that is where I can serve the patient best to prevent the need for similar rides in the future. Why is the patient obsessed with events before the ride?

It is only natural for the individual in a screaming ambulance to recycle endlessly the events of their frightened, sometimes tormented, rides in their mind. They thrive on relating those events to anyone willing or able to listen. But such renderings do nothing to set free their constricted blood vessels and nourish their oxygen-starved cells. Rather the trips recycled their images and incarcerated their body organs under duress deeper into fear and helplessness. Many such trips increase the probability of repeat ambulance trips. Every ambulance trip adds to the System’s riches and impoverishes the rider. Each trip adds to the cumulative shift of power in favor of the System. The System, of course, knows this well.

What Does Tycho’s Story Say About Ambulance Trips?

Tycho has much to say on the subject of ambulance trips and shifts in power balance. Who is Tycho? I anticipate the question. Please Google the following three words: Tycho, Ali, and Breathing. You will like Tycho and his message.

What More Do I Have to Say About Ambulance Trips?

Humans are energy beings. Every cell in every body organ is an energy being. Cellular health is a matter of how cells generate clean energy and how they use that energy efficiently and to good purpose. So begins the language of what I call healing literacy. This is the language people need to learn concerning the week before ambulance trips.

The System does not profit from healing literacy. It profits from—and therefore is utterly committed to—other types of literacies, especially from disease-literacy, drug-literacy, device-literacy, and procedure-literacy. Ambulance trips and weeks following them fan the fear and frustrations of weeks and months following such trips. Some years ago, I introduced the terms healing-literacy, disease-literacy, drug-literacy, device-literacy, and procedure-literacy to draw attention to this crucial issue in all considerations of health and healing.

Who Promotes Ambulance Trips? Who Can Prevent Them?

I ask the reader to reflect on the questions and then see if their answers are different from my answers given above. Who can prevent repeat ambulance trips? Of course, it is you. Who else? Where do you begin? With your mirror. How do you proceed? Read below.

How Does One Find the Healer-in-the-Mirror?

The first step, of course, is to find the courage to look into the mirror. The second step is become healing-literate. This cannot be done with disease-literacy, nor with drug-literacy, nor with device-literacy. I have devoted more than four decades to a serious study of the subject of literacy in healing traditions. For individuals interested in healing literacy to avoid or minimize ambulance trips, I suggest beginning with a study of the following three free courses on http://www.drali1.org.

1. Spiritual Healing Course
2. Fermentation Course
3. Oxygen Course

Who Can Prevent Repeat Ambulance Trips?

I return to the question in the subtitle of this article. Who can prevent repeat ambulance trips? Of course, it is you. Who else? Where do you begin? With your mirror. How do you proceed? Take my free Spiritual Healing Course at http://www.drali1.org.
