Russo-Ukrainian War

Here’s a thought.

How about this for a negotiated settlement?

First, Russia pulls its army out of Ukraine completely.

Then fair and true referendums without any tampering are held in the Donbas and Crimea under the organisation and inspection of a third-party state decided by agreement between Russia and Ukraine.

If the real result of any of the elections shows that most people in that oblast genuinely want to be part of Russia, then Ukraine cedes the territory.

If however, the residents wish to remain as part of Ukraine, then Russia relinquishes all claim.

End of war.

Too simple?

May your life never become an endurance test.

My best wishes to all of you for Christmas and 2023.

Healthy Comment

The single most valuable comment I have ever read about health is the following:

“…the question to ask is not “What’s wrong with my body?” but rather “What is my body trying to tell me?””

The Tapping Solution by Nick Ortner, Hay House 2013, p. 14.

If you have still to discover EFT (short for Emotional Freedom Techniques) or “tapping” as it’s known for short, then I heartily recommend checking out The Tapping Solution site itself.

Briefly stated, tapping is a holistic remedy in which you tap physically on eight meridian points on the face and body while making statements aloud that define your dis-ease and then work towards their resolution. It’s absolutely free, requires no equipment or medicine, and it’s something you can easily do at home on your own, which means that it’s in total contrast to all those expensive drug-related treatments that send the cost of your health insurance spiralling.

I discovered tapping through the above site a couple of years ago and have got into the habit of doing a round or two just before getting up.  A couple of weeks back, for example, I had a really severe sore throat which made it extremely painful to swallow.  I tapped on this problem for a couple of days and it went away without developing or going down on the chest, which it would undoubtedly have done without any intervention.

It’s a good time to explore this extraordinary health tool because the Tapping World Summit 2016 will begin on 22nd February.  There are lots of fascinating free interviews and talks during a ten-day period every year and I guarantee that you will feel uplifted simply by listening to one or two, even if you are totally sceptical about the whole thing before you start.

Have fun!
