We live in a world dominated by powerful people and large industries. We search for our roles within this behemoth structure to create a life that satisfies our everyday needs. Most people believe they are such small entities within these massive conglomerations, they are unable to influence or affect outcomes.

Can you see the possibility in the perception of MOVEMENT becoming a “feel good” activity rather than a HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY requirement to “undo” personal health damage?
If the individual could find “ONE” thing each time to counter balance the challenges in life, it would reduce overwhelming feelings and prevent a growing imbalance that builds up over a lifetime.

Looking at life under these terms and conditions takes our giant world and reduces it to a simpler place to live. Thinking in these terms allows the MIND to rediscover a new REALITY; a reality that converts complicated problems into simpler solutions by reducing one’s vision to:
