If we work hard, can we be OK with any outcome? Of course we can, but we see that it requires some mind detox to reach that point. We need to reach a form of higher perspective, to see the bigger picture. That’s when we don’t take things personally, and we step out of our own doing, more like if we were observing it instead. That’s how the best leaders describe their work; it’s not personal! When we can be detached from what we do and the outcome of what we do, but still work hard for it to happen, we are detached from the future. Then any outcome is OK, but we still work 100% towards the one we want the most.
We “use” the future, or our thinking mind (a great tool), to lead us towards a direction, but we are detached from the goal. The objective is doing it, not the goal. This is accepting any outcome and it is the only way we can be at peace. The world is constantly changing, new factors occur and we can’t control the future. It’s letting go of the expectations and therefore the disillusions and accept that we can only try to predict, but it is nothing but our limited mind trying to minimize the risks. It’s accepting things as they are and doing our best anyway, hopefully having fun, exploring life and learning while doing it. It’s a mantra of John Chambers, CEO of Cisco, one of the worlds best leaders.
Detachment is the foundation in many philosophies. That’s when we realize that the journey is more important than the goal, as the saying goes. And even if we don’t reach the goal we sat out, something else comes instead that we might not even have been able to imagine. Choose your direction, let the map be your goal not your destination, and accept any outcome. Then start walking again and make a new map. Notice how productive and creative you get. Detach from yourself, observe yourself and let go, so you can learn and accept your wants and wishes. Have them but don’t let them have you. When we are detached, free of the outcome, we feel how the creativity and productivity starts energizing us. Oh, and have FUN!

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
