In my own life, I've fallen prey to believing that I could "see" stress regardless of circumstances. I found myself to be a decent multitasker and always prided me to be like a straight line that's never too far up or down. By doing so, I felt that pressure on my life was often unnecessary and without any benefit. I could see it.
Well, when I was 35, I found 7 health foods, 3 clinics, natural products manufacturing, 4 homes, two children, a wife and travel around 1500 miles a week, including flights and international travel. I was on the cover of a magazine, wrote articles, made radio groups and spoke to groups and often never knew at the start of the day where I would end at the end of the day. I would wake up in the morning and need a few minutes to identify where I was waking up even. I remember when I woke up when I lost the hill in Cessna 172 above the Appalachian Mountains as I was a pilot!
I fell asleep once in a wheel of 4×4 Ford Excursion Diesel when I bought the road in town while I called the phone on the phone! I trust people I should not have, not there many nights when my girls were sleeping and woke up many nights wondering what I did and why. I knew the message I was teaching was important, but the message was all but running away from my own life.
I had a car accident near death when I was asked unconsciously in a sports car, lying in the bottom of a canyon in North Georgia, in the wood at 3 o'clock in the morning. I was covered in the blood, upside down and fumbling around for guess what? My mobile phone. It had been thrown 35 feet in the woods. When I kicked out of the car that was burning, I got my phone and climbed the gap to call for help.
It was unnecessary to say that at this time I finally acknowledged that I had to reassess my life, that I was not indestructible and that I could not control all of myself and myself. It was time for a magnificent change.
Interestingly, about 20 years before this life event I have been delivered a formula that was there to help me.
As a young teenager I met a herbal remedy that lived only from my school but was internationally said as one of the world's best national techniques.
Tommie Bass lived in Leesburg, Alabama and was on the cover of the Wall Street Journal in 1985 and was over 5 books, but had no formal education, taught at Duke University and was subject to Master's degree.
The day I met Tommie was one of the most important days in my life. He taught me about simple herbalism using what was created for us to use as our medicine, about people and how to help them when they were unable to do it themselves, about simple life and being close nature. I'm sure he was not going to be in the woods at 3:00 am to crawl out of Jaguar XKR that was burning.
