A great inspirational speech by Terence McKenna. He has given me much to think of, and I consider myself one of his followers, even if I do believe in other things as well and have my own thoughts I believe that much of what he said are indeed true. Listen and read his speech and you might understand.

Some Thoughts on Society

I wrote this for those who can relate to it.

You are all ignorant people, you don’t listen, you don’t care. You live your life, feeding on your own false desires and egoistic needs. Don’t you understand that you are controlled by the government and media, directed into a society of consuming unnecessary things. This is the reason for the depression epidemic in the western world. Caused by not following your own true will, but falling into slavery. And you are comfortable with this, therefore you will not change, you will close your eyes to this. That is your choise, but some day you will regret it.


I rather live in the forest, far away from society and materialistic thinking. Because unlike you I don’t value possession. I value consciousness, peace, love and happiness more. And as long as you love materials, you can’t love life. I was influenced by this. And I was depressed, but I found the truth and with it my happiness, the inner joy. And as long as the society is ignorant and close-minded I will hate it and pity those who live in it. I am longing for a place far away from it. And I am reaching for a home without all this false desires caused by the influence from media and the global ignorance. I want to live free, not in slavery like the rest of the world.

Last night I was out in the forest with some friends. We made a fire which took like 2-3 hours to make because the wood was so wet. We of course wanted to do it for real so the only modern product we used was the lighter. But anyway, it was very enjoyable cause we talked much about Samhain and the story behind it, we did a simple protection ritual and chilled out. I feel that it was one of the best time in a long time and to breathe the fresh air, watch the moon and stars move on the sky as the day was coming closer… I felt like a real romantic and a light was opened inside me more and more as the time went on. When we came home the clock was about 06:30 in the morning and I fell asleep and had a lucid dream about a very protective raven sitting on my shoulder attacking spiritual enemies and keeping me safe.



This morning I woke up hungry, so after a coffee, meditation and the basic grounding I started with the brunch; reindeer with chanterelle’s, different roots and poached eggs and a glass of fresh juice was the menu of today and a part of my paleodiet. I cooked quiet a lot so I had the same for dinner. I met a new friend this weekend and he has a big problem with wild swine’s and offered me as much wild swine meat as I wanted for free. This mean that I can get meat for the whole year and really concentrate on the paleodiet. I will vary between reindeer, elk, wild swine, deer, duck, pheasant, ox and lamb (because I love lamb) meat. A new era in my life starts now!

I’m now going to really focus on my weight loss. I have been walking between 30 minutes to about an hour now and then and I’m following a paleodiet which has worked well so far. Since the spring I have lost 39.5 pounds which for me is a big success. But I want to lose more weight and not lose too much muscles. So I will vary the cardio with the heavy weight lifting. The goal is 198 lbs and im now at 243.1 lbs which makes it a wanted loss of 45.1 pounds more. The goal is to be there by the beginning of the summer.

Short About Paleodiet


I will continue with the paleodiet due to the great change with my health and the weightloss it has given me so far. For example I will eat:

  • Fish – Cod, Herring, Salmon, Trout, Tuna etc.
  • Wild Meat – Elk, Reindeer, Goose, Duck, Wild Boar etc
  • Organ Meats – Lamb, Pork and Chicken: livers, tounges, marrow etc
  • Lean Meats – Pork chops & lean, Lean Beef, Flank Steak etc
  • Fruit – Apple, Avocado, Lemon, Lime, Pears, Mango, Grapes etc
  • Vegetables – Cabbage, Carrots, Mushrooms, Onions, Pumpkin etc
  • Nuts & Seeds – Cashews, Hazelnuts, Pecans, Walnuts etc.

I will try to avoid grains and sweets and dairy foods as much as it takes, but I think that once a month I will allow myself to eat unhealthy such as pizza, hamburgers, kebab, chips, coca cola and sweets. I think it’s not good to be too strict with the food, cause I’ll be tempted and think it’s boring after a while, and that’s not good.


I will add another 45 minutes crosstrainer 2 times/week outside the walking and I will also try to add strength exercises so I train 3-4 times/week, for example:

  • Monday: Rest
  • Tuesday: Back/Shoulders/Biceps
  • Wednesday: Cardio/Legs
  • Thursday: Rest
  • Friday: Chest/Triceps/Abs
  • Saturday: Rest
  • Sunday: Cardio/Traps/Neck

In the beginning I will do 1×20 reps for 1 more week as I did the last week. Then I will go over to 2×12-15 reps for 2 weeks. This two different schemes is just to get back and use the muscles with the training. Then I will focus on little heavier weights. 3×8 reps varied with 4×6 reps will do fine. What exercises I will do will be posted then.

Working Out Starts Now!

Was working out yesterday evening for the first time after a long break. It felt good to be back in business. I have been taking some long walks from time to time, but the weather is getting colder and have not yet packed up my winter clothes, so this is a great thing to mix with. And I will keep this up and vary walking from the working out.

Anyway, I woke up this morning with great aches from the exercises which I love! Now I really feel that my body is doing something real and that is just good.

I started out with 10 minutes on the crosstrainer for some warming up. Then I did the weight and machine exercises. I did 1×20 in each exercise, I want to get all muscles going before I start with the real workout.

The exercises I did was;
Lat Pulldown
Seated Cable Rows
Hyperextensions (Back Extensions)
Bent Over Barbell Row

Seated Barbell Military Press
Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press

Quads – Barbell Squat
Quads – Barbell Full Squat

Hamstrings – Lying Leg Curls
Hamstrings – Stiff-Legged Dumbbell Deadlift

Calves – Barbell Seated Calf Raise
Calves – Donkey Calf Raises

Flat Bench Press
Cable Crossover

Dumbbell Bicep Curl
Concentration Curls

Cable Rope Overhead Triceps Extension
Decline EZ Bar Triceps Extension

Standing Dumbbell Upright Row

Cable Seated Crunch

After between 1,5-2 hours I finished with 30 minutes crosstrainer and stretching after that. Puh, that’s was a long workout since it was the first for about three years.

Next time I will report my current size and weight together with more specifics about how I will train and so on… You’ll see!

Greetings / Nick

I’ve had for a couple of years now lower back pain which returns now and then. I believe it is because that I have been sitting down to much and for a long time. The problems began shortly after that my interest of computers and web design came. I sat in school and when I came home I sat with the computer. Then I had a great time with no pain when I worked out, played soccer and in the military service it was not there aswell. But after the military service I started with an office job as a telephone salesman and worked with it for 4 years. And I came home and sat with my computer making websites. So my back problem came back again. But for some time now I have done some exercises which has been really good for my lower back. And I will keep doing them until it is gone and I can get out more. I am still little lazy after seven months of doing nothing really. Anyway here is the video and temporary cure for my back pain. Maybe it can do some good for you aswell?

Yesterday I noticed that the trees are changing colour. Its autumn, so I thought I’d make a nice autumn stew. Found the recipe online and ill have a stew for some days because I had 3.5 pound boneless pork shoulder at home. that will probably last for the rest of the month or so if Im not inviting someone over tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes.


Serves 6.

• 1 3-pound boneless pork shoulder (butt) roast, cut into 2-inch cubes, trimmed
• 2 tablespoons oil
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 2 chopped onions
• 2 carrots, pared, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
• 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, quartered
• 3/4 cup apple cider
• 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
• 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
• 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage

Cooking Directions

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork cubes and brown on all sides, turning as needed, about 5 minutes. Transfer pork to plate, season with salt and pepper. Add onions, carrots and apples to skillet and cook, stirring often, until onions begin to brown, about 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker and top with pork cubes. Add apple cider, thyme, allspice and sage to skillet. Bring to a simmer, scraping up brown bits on bottom of skillet; add to the slow cooker. Cover and slow-cook until pork is tender, 6-7 hours on low. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a serving bowl, cover to keep warm. Skim off fat from surface of cooking liquid. In food processor or blender, puree cooking liquid and solids until smooth. Pour sauce over meat, stir gently and serve immediately.

Wine suggestion: Serve with a lightly chilled Riesling or Gewurztraminer.

Serving Suggestions
This menu is great for a busy autumn day—put dinner in the slow cooker and it’s ready when you are. Serve with mashed potatoes or egg noodles, buttered Brussels sprouts and warm dinner rolls.
