WISDOM! Is that Enlightenment?

WISDOM! Is that Enlightenment?
Quote: "Wisdom knows this. Wisdom is not thinking about how to manipulate affairs so that events work out in its favour. Wisdom performs none of this. Wisdom just knows that we are being manipulated. To stay connected to wisdom through awareness, we need simply to stay in the moment. This involves doing NOTHING. This involves NO PRAYERS, NO MEDITATION, NO MANTRAS, NO RITUALS, NO JOINING,… NO THING. All practices, be they MEDITATIVE or PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES, are exercises in remaining OUT OF THE ONE ETERNAL MOMENT. This is not to say that meditating is bad or wrong, just as physical activity is not bad or wrong. There is no such thing as good or bad, or right or wrong. However, these exercises avail no benefit in reconnecting to the wisdom state. Only emotional detachment, which is to place NO REAL WORTH or REAL VALUE in anything 3 dimensional, is true reconnection to reality. There is no such thing as TIME and SPACE, and to enter into activities where you confess, and admit, disconnection from wisdom, simply by entering into that activity whereby you hope to reconnect to wisdom, (or as some call it, ENLIGHTENMENT), then you have not RECONNECTED WITH your original WISDOM STATE." (Enlightenment is a luciferian term that sounds and seems to speak of reconnection to wisdom, however wisdom and enlightenment have nothing in common). - IM Nuff Said!

The DEATH PROCESS – Reconnecting to Paradise. - IlluminatiMATRIX!

(French Version Posted Below)

The DEATH PROCESS – Reconnecting to Paradise

The following is a response to a comment made by finn from England on February 1, 2009 at 4:54 pm. This may be helpful to some who are dealing with the transition from the Trance State to the Paradise State.

Hi finn – What I’m putting forward on this site has been developed from the perspective that the entire 3D experience is a total fabrication, which was developed through the THOUGHT PROCESS. Everything is ENERGY, or LIGHT, and the PROCESS of THINKING generates sub-atomic particles, that replicate and regenerate as the THOUGHT PROCESS expands. This process conjures up an illusion that keeps us distracted and disconnected from our original Paradise State and the originators of this process, the luciferian LIGHT BRINGERS, then gain the benefit of our power and strength and total control of that eternal state. We are the totality of all wisdom, and are that eternal state. The luciferian thinkers sought to control this wisdom, and this STATE, which is who WE ARE, and in exercising the EGO within the eternal state, and then THINKING THEY KNEW SOMETHING, initiated the THOUGHT PROCESS.

A THOUGHT is a WORD. A word is a SOUND. Sound VIBRATES. Vibration is ENERGY. Energy GLOWS. Glowing is LIGHT. Therefore, THOUGHTS are LIGHT. Everything in the 3D plane are the thoughts of the luciferian egregore group of thinkers. When you see anything in a 3D sense, you’re looking right into the mind, and the thoughts of the LIGHT BRINGERS. Some refer to this as god. Everything 3D is simply the mind, or the thoughts, or the sub-atomic particles created by the THINKING PROCESS, of the luciferian egregore, who claim to be the supreme god, but only form the master hypnotic illusionist, the luciferian egregore group of thinkers.

I’ve only heard of Tom Horn in passing from time to time and haven’t really any information on his work other than the website you mention. As always though, and though he’s well meaning, this is just another individual being manipulated to carry out the luciferian agenda. Any and all who focus on what appears to be wrong in the world, and how we might prepare in a 3D and/or spiritual sense, for the coming devastation, cataclysm, or ruin of some nature, are only perpetuating the message of the luciferian/illuminati egregore agenda. As you continue through this site, it will be spelled out abundantly clear, that we must have no concern for the 3D horrors going on around us, and that we must let go of any emotional attachment to the 3D experience, and thereby reconnect to our original state of wisdom and all knowing. We are, all of humanity, ONE ALREADY, and we ALREADY ARE WISE and ETERNAL. The 3 Dimensional experience was simply conjured up to separate us from that awareness, and in so doing they were able to gain control of our state of eternal being.

There is no such thing as TIME and SPACE, and we can reconnect to the eternal Paradise State RIGHT NOW, through this emotional detachment. This awareness will allow you to reclaim your freedom and liberty RIGHT NOW. A word of care is in order here however. You will experience an array of emotions as you emotionally detach. There will be a very real DEATH EXPERIENCE without actually experiencing a 3D death.

According to people who have studied the death process, such as Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, when a person learns that they’re going to physically die, they go through 5 stages of dying. Usually in this order:


People go through these emotions, generally following this pattern, however, the emotions can be mixed up in the order you experience them, and you can revert back and forth between different emotions.

Becoming aware of what the 3D experience is, how it was conjured up, and the emotional detachment that then occurs, takes you through this DEATH PROCESS as you become DEAD TO THE WORLD. This isn’t a path to enlightenment, simply because you already know everything. This is an act of bringing REALITY INTO FOCUS within the 3 dimensional mind the luciferian thinkers gave you. In restoring your focus within that mind, you reclaim your original wisdom and eternal Paradise State and detach from the THOUGHTS continually implanted within that mind by the THOUGHT PROCESS that originates with the THINKERS.

As for doing what you can to apply this understanding, just watch and wait. DON”T TRY to apply, you are already perfect and pure and by watching and waiting and being concerned for nothing, is the freedom and liberty that SEPARATES YOU FROM THE ILLUSION and the 3D thought process prison. The prison really is all in our minds. Change the mind, and you change the reality. Remember, there is no such thing as god, an eternal spirit, or a soul. There is the eternal wisdom and all knowing that you are already, so simply become aware, reconnect and reclaim your original Paradise State. Wisdom, knowing, freedom, liberty, joy, peace, and the power and strength that accompanies these characteristics of the one eternal moment, are much more real and of true value than anything in this 3D light show we call life.

Thanks for reading and please continue to read the whole site as there are a lot of points to assist in helping others to break out of the trance state we find ourselves in.

It All Comes Back To Nothing
(These next words were sent to me, written anonymously, but straight to what reality is).

Hats off to this guy. Anonymous words of wisdom.

“Everything Comes Back Into Nothing”
By: ~?~

Inexplicably it comes. When you least expect it. For a reason you can never know. One moment you are striving, figuring, imagining, and then, in the blink of an eye, it all disappears. The struggle disappears. The striving disappears. The person disappears. The world disappears. Everything disappears, and the person is like a pinpoint of light, just receding until it disappears. And there’s nobody there to witness it. The person is gone. Only, only awareness remains. Nothing else. No one to be aware. Nothing to be aware of. Only that remains itself. Then it’s understood, finally and simply.

Then everything—all the struggle, all the striving, all the thinking, all the figuring, all the surrendering, all the letting go, all the grabbing hold of, all the praying, all the begging, all the cursing, too—was just a distraction. And only then is it seen that the person was, is, and ever will be no more than a thought. With a single thought, the person seems to reemerge. With more thoughts, the world seems to reemerge right out of nothing. But now you know.

The incarnation is nothing more than a thought. A thousand incarnations are but a thousand thoughts. And this amazing miracle of a mirage we call the world reappears as it was before, but now you know. That’s why you usually have a good laugh, because you realize that all your struggles were made up. You conjured them up out of nothing—with a thought that was linked to another thought, that was then believed, that linked to another thought that was then believed. But never could it have been true, not for a second could it have actually existed. Not ever could you have actually suffered for a reason that was true—only through an imagination, good, bad, indifferent. The intricacies of spiritual philosophy and theologies are just a thought within Emptiness.

And so at times we talk, and I pretend to take your struggles seriously, just as I pretended to take my own seriously. You may pretend to take your own struggles seriously from time to time, and although we pretend, we really shouldn’t forget that we are pretending, that we are making up the content of our experience; we are making up the little dramas of our lives. We are making up whether we need to hold on or surrender or figure it out or pray to God or be purified or have karma cleansed—it’s all a thought. We just collude in this ridiculous charade of an illusion pretending that it’s real, only to reveal that it’s not. There is no karma. There is nothing really to purify. There’s no problem. There is only what you create and believe to be so. And if you like it that way, have at it!

But we cannot continue this absolute farce indefinitely. We cannot continue to pretend this game we play, indefinitely. It’s impossible. Everything comes back to nothing.

And then it’s a bit harder to hold a straight face consistently for the rest of your life.

Se Reconnecter au Paradis

Ce qui suit est en réponse à un commentaire soumis par Finn de l’Angleterre le 1er février 2009 à 4:54 p.m. Ceci pourrait être utile à ceux qui sont en train de négocier la transition de l’État de Transe à l’État Paradisiaque.

Allô Finn – Ce que je présente dans ce site a été développé à partir de la perspective que l’entière expérience 3D est une fabrication totale qui fut manifestée par le PROCESSUS DE LA PENSÉE. Tout est ÉNERGIE, ou LUMIÈRE, et le PROCESSUS de la PENSÉE génère des particules sub-atomiques qui se reproduisent et se régénèrent à mesure que le PROCESSUS DE LA PENSÉE prend de l’expansion. Ce processus conjure une illusion qui distrait notre attention et nous maintient déconnectés de notre État Paradisiaque originel, et à ce moment-là, les créateurs de ce processus, les PORTEURS DE LUMIÈRE lucifériens, profitent de notre puissance et notre force et prennent le contrôle total de cet état éternel. Nous sommes la totalité de la Sagesse, et nous sommes l’Éternelle Réalité. Les penseurs lucifériens cherchèrent à contrôler cette Sagesse, et cette ÉTERNELLE RÉALITÉ, qui est ce que NOUS SOMMES, et en employant l’EGO dans l’état éternel et en PENSANT QU’ILS CONNAISSAIENT QUELQUE CHOSE, initièrent le PROCESSUS DE LA PENSÉE.

UNE PENSÉE est un MOT. Un mot est un SON. Le son VIBRE, la Vibration est ÉNERGIE. L’Énergie RAYONNE. Le Rayonnement est LUMIÈRE. Par conséquent, LES PENSÉES SONT LUMIÈRE. Tout ce qui existe sur le plan 3D est le résultat des pensées du groupe égrégore de penseurs lucifériens. Lorsque vous voyez quelque chose dans le sens 3D vous regardez tout droit dans l’esprit et les pensées des PORTEURS DE LUMIÈRE. Certains disent qu’ils sont dieu. Tout ce qui existe en 3D est simplement l’esprit, ou les pensées, ou les particules sub-atomiques créées par le PROCESSUS DE LA PENSÉE de l’égrégore luciférien, qui prétend être le dieu suprême, mais qui n’est en fait que le maître hypnotiseur de l’illusion ou le groupe égrégore de penseurs lucifériens.

J’ai entendu parler de Tom Horn seulement en passant, de temps en temps, et je n’ai pas vraiment d’information quant à ses travaux, autre que le site Web que vous mentionnez. Comme toujours, cependant, et bien qu’il soit de bonne foi, ce n’est qu’un autre individu manipulé pour réaliser le Projet luciférien. Tous ceux qui mettent l’accent sur ce qui va mal dans le monde, et sur la manière de nous préparer, au sens 3D et/ou spirituel, dans le contexte de la prochaine dévastation, cataclysme, ou ruine de quelque nature, ne font que perpétuer le message du Projet de l’égrégore luciférien/illuminati. En continuant la lecture de ce site, il sera indiqué très clairement que nous ne devons pas nous inquiéter des horreurs en 3D autour de nous, et que nous devons laisser aller tout attachement émotionnel à l’expérience 3D. En ce faisant, nous nous reconnectons à notre état originel de Sagesse et de Connaissance totale. Nous sommes – toute l’humanité – DÉJÀ UN, et nous SOMMES DÉJÀ SAGES et ÉTERNELS. L’expérience 3D fut simplement conjurée pour nous séparer de cette Sagesse de l’Éternelle Réalité et ainsi, l’égrégore luciférien réussit à prendre le contrôle de notre état d’être éternel.

Il n’y a rien de tels que le TEMPS et L’ESPACE, et nous pouvons nous reconnecter à l’État Paradisiaque DÈS MAINTENANT, en nous détachant émotionnellement. Cette réalisation vous permettra de reconquérir votre liberté DÈS MAINTENANT. Cependant, un mot de prudence est indiqué ici. Vous ferez l’expérience d’une palette d’émotions en vous détachant émotionnellement. Vous vivrez une EXPÉRIENCE DE MORT très réelle, sans vivre l’expérience de la mort du corps physique 3D.

Selon des gens qui ont étudié le processus de la mort, comme Elizabeth Kübler-Ross, lorsqu’une personne apprend qu’elle va mourir physiquement, elle passe par les 5 étapes du mourir. Habituellement dans cet ordre :

1. Le DÉNI

Les gens passent par ces émotions, généralement dans cet ordre. Cependant, vous pourriez vivre des émotions partagées, et vous pourriez les vivre dans un va-et-vient entre différentes émotions.

La réalisation de la vraie nature de l’expérience 3D, comment elle a été conjurée, et le détachement émotionnel qui en découle, vous font passer par le PROCESSUS DE LA MORT puisque vous MOUREZ au MONDE. Ce n’est pas une voie d’illumination, parce que, en toute simplicité, vous connaissez déjà toutes choses. C’est plutôt l’acte de remettre La RÉALITÉ au CENTRE de l’esprit tridimensionnel que les penseurs lucifériens vous ont donné. En ramenant votre centre d’attention à l’intérieur de cet esprit, vous retrouvez votre Sagesse originelle et l’Éternelle Réalité, et vous vous détachez des PENSÉES qui sont implantées continuellement dans cet esprit par le PROCESSUS DE LA PENSÉE qui vient des PENSEURS.

Voici ce que vous pouvez faire pour appliquer cette compréhension : observer et attendre. N’ESSAYEZ PAS d’appliquer cette compréhension, vous êtes déjà pur et parfait. C’est dans l’observation et l’attente, sans inquiétude à propos de rien, que réside la liberté qui vous SÉPARE DE L’ILLUSION et la prison du processus de la pensée 3D. La prison est vraiment entièrement dans notre esprit. Changez l’esprit, et vous changez la réalité. Rappelez-vous, il n’y a rien de tel que dieu, un esprit éternel, ou une âme. Il n’y a que l’éternelle Sagesse et la Connaissance que vous êtes déjà, alors, réalisez ce qui est, reconnectez-vous et entrez dans votre État éternel Paradisiaque. La Sagesse, la Connaissance, la Liberté, la Joie, la Paix, et la puissance et la force qui accompagnent les caractéristiques de ce moment éternel unique, sont bien plus réelles que n’importe quoi apparaissant dans ce spectacle de lumière en 3D que nous appelons la vie.

Merci de lire mes textes et, je vous en prie, continuez à lire le site au complet car il y a de nombreux sujets pouvant vous aider à en aider d’autres à briser l’état de transe dans laquelle nous nous trouvons.

Fin de la réponse à Finn.

Tout Retourne au Néant

(Les mots qui suivent m’ont été envoyés de façon anonyme, et exposent directement ce qu’est la RÉALITÉ). Chapeau à l’auteur anonyme. Des mots de sagesse.

« Tout Retourne au Néant »
par : ?

Ça arrive de façon inexplicable. Lorsque vous vous y attendez le moins. Pour une raison que nous ne pourrez jamais connaître. Un moment vous faites des efforts, vous supposez, vous imaginez, et puis, en un clin d’œil, tout ça disparaît. Le combat disparaît. L’effort disparaît. La personne disparaît. Le monde disparaît. Tout disparaît, et la personne est comme un point de lumière, s’estompant jusqu’à ce qu’il disparaisse. Et il n’y a personne pour en témoigner. La personne est partie. Il ne reste seulement que la Sagesse de l’Éternelle Réalité. Rien d’autre. La personne n’est pas consciente. Rien n’existe dont la personne pourrait être consciente. Ça seulement, demeure. Alors, on a compris, finalement et simplement.

Puis tout – tous les combats, tous les efforts, toutes les pensées, toutes les choses imaginées, tous les lâchers-prises, tous les abandons, toutes les possessions, toutes les prières, toutes les supplications, tous les jurons, aussi – n’était qu’une distraction. Et là seulement, on comprend que la personne était, est, et ne sera jamais plus qu’une pensée. Avec une seule pensée, la personne semble ré-émerger. Avec d’autres pensées, le monde semble ré-émerger absolument à partir de rien. Mais maintenant, vous savez.

L’incarnation n’est rien de plus qu’une pensée. Un millier d’incarnations ne sont qu’un millier de pensées. Et ce mirage fascinant que nous appelons le monde réapparaît comme il était auparavant, mais maintenant, vous savez. Voilà pourquoi d’habitude vous vous éclatez de rire, parce que vous réalisez que tous vos combats étaient fabriqués. Vous les avez conjurés à partir de rien – par une pensée qui était liée à une autre pensée que vous avez crue, laquelle était reliée à une autre pensée qui vous aviez alors crue. Mais jamais ce ne pouvait être vrai, pas pour une seconde, que ça pouvait véritablement exister. Jamais auriez-vous pu véritablement souffrir pour une raison qui était vraie – mais seulement à cause d’une imagination, bonne, mauvaise ou indifférente. Les complexités de la philosophie spirituelle et des théologies ne sont qu’une pensée dans le Néant.

Et alors, de temps en temps, nous parlons. Et je prétends prendre vos combats au sérieux, tout comme j’avais l’habitude de prendre les miens au sérieux. Vous pouvez prétendre prendre vos propres combats sérieusement de temps à autre, et bien que nous prétendions, nous ne devrions pas oublier que nous prétendons, que nous fabriquons le contenu de notre expérience; nous fabriquons les petits drames de nos vies. Nous fabriquons nos idées à savoir si nous avons besoin de nous attacher ou de nous détacher, ou d’imaginer, ou de prier Dieu, ou de nous purifier, ou de laver notre karma – ce n’est toujours qu’une pensée. Nous nous associons à cette charade ridicule de l’illusion, prétendant que c’est réel, seulement pour découvrir que ce ne l’est pas. Il n’y a pas de karma. Il n’y a vraiment rien à purifier. Il n’y a aucun problème. Il n’y a que ce que nous créons et croyons être vrai. Et si vous aimez ça comme ça, eh! bien, allez-y.

Mais nous ne pouvons pas continuer cette farce absolue indéfiniment. Nous ne pouvons pas continuer à prétendre, à jouer à ce jeu. C’est impossible. Tout Retourne au Néant.

Et puis, ça devient un peu difficile de toujours garder un visage impassible, sans rire, pour le restant de notre vie.

Take Care! :~)

Forced Vaccinations in the USA: A Whistleblower's Clear Warning!

I have posted information concerning a Man-Made potential flu pandemic that is being created to harm us. The following videos speak on their own. Please watch & listen carefully. These videos are important to see. I can't say with 100% certainty what is reported here will actually happen. I do say that it's unforunately, very possible. Everyone needs to be aware of this potential dangerous situation.

Forced vaccinations are coming. The military may even be called upon to promote and "facilitate" the dispensing of this UNTESTED and potentially harmful vaccine!


Thank you for your attention. -DarkStar888-

The original poster of the video was endtimes777 - a very brave young woman. She is (as far as we know) a 37 year old Army Engineer and over the weekend of Sept 12-13 in the LA are attended a drill with colleagues, including California Highway Patrol, LA County Sheriffs, and LAPD

One of these colleagues told her that he had recently been training to establish roadblocks in the LA area...and shows clearly readable documentation and a photo (taken by her colleague) of what she states is an RFID tracking device.

It's a little unclear what information she has learned at first hand and what she's learned from others whom she trusts. She states that she knows that the dates for the two waves of forced vaccinations are October 15 and November 15. It's not stated how she knows this. However: the information reported seems credible and if true, could not be more important.

Watch carefully and please distribute widely. If you do so, please copy the above information - which is important to understand clearly.

Forced vaccinations: a whistleblower's clear warning - reposted by Project Camelot

She references the testimony of former State Trooper Greg Evensen here:

Military check points to enforce swine flu vaccination shots!
Mandatory RFID chip = 666 mark

Vaccination fears are REAL... dont listen to the media!

BREAKING NEWS!Military to administer vaccinations!
Total control of America about to occur!!!

Doubt the government plans to impose martial law and round up dissidents and other malcontents? Well, the Army National Guard is advertising for qualified personnel to work as Corrections Officers and Internment/Resettlement Specialists.

As an Internment/Resettlement Specialist for the Army National Guard, you will ensure the smooth running of military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility, similar to those duties conducted by civilian Corrections Officers, a classified ad posted on the web states. This will require you to know proper procedures and military law; and have the ability to think quickly in high-stress situations.

Specific duties may include assisting with supervision and management operations; providing facility security; providing custody, control, supervision, and escort; and counseling individual prisoners in rehabilitative programs.

The term rehabilitative programs is key. Glenn Beck and the corporate media may attempt to discredit the fact there are FEMA camps, but military documents demonstrate the government plans to herd people into internment camps. Army Regulation 210-35, entitled Civilian Inmate Labor Program, provides guidance for establishing and managing civilian inmate labor programs on Army installations. It provides guidance on establishing prison camps on Army installations.

In Maos China, the government established a sprawling system of administrative detention centers — known as Laogai — designed to reeducate dissidents and other social misfits through forced slave labor. In the Soviet Union under Stalin, a network of gulags — a Russian acronym for The Chief Administration of Corrective Labor Camps and Colonies — were established, primarily for political prisoners and as a mechanism for repressing political opposition to the Soviet state.

Rex 84 was created in the United States for basically the same reason. The Rex-84 Alpha Explan (Readiness Exercise 1984, Exercise Plan; otherwise known as a continuity of government plan), indicates that FEMA in association with 34 other federal civil departments and agencies, along with other NATO nations, conducted a civil readiness exercise during April 5-13, 1984. It was conducted in coordination and simultaneously with a Joint Chiefs exercise, Night Train 84, a worldwide military command post exercise (including Continental U.S. Forces or CONUS) based on multi-emergency scenarios operating both abroad and at home. In the combined exercise, Rex-84 Bravo, FEMA and DOD led the other federal agencies and departments, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secret Service, the Treasury, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Veterans Administration through a gaming exercise to test military assistance in civil defense, writes Diana Reynolds. The exercise anticipated civil disturbances, major demonstrations and strikes that would affect continuity of government and/or resource mobilization. To fight subversive activities, there was authorization for the military to implement government ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels, the arrest of certain unidentified segments of the population, and the imposition of martial law.

OBESITY – Is it ok to be FAT & OVER WEIGHT? Love you body no matter WHAT?

“Dear Friends,

There is nothing worse for you than being fat.

I can't put it any plainer than that, yet there's still a lunatic fringe of touchy-feely fools out there telling people to love their bodies no matter the shape. And the worst part of all is that they're doing it under the guise of being healthy.

The latest, Michelle Allison, who calls herself "the Fat Nutritionist," managed to get the go-ahead from an editor at the once-respected magazine Newsweek to spout her porky nonsense on their website.

She writes that "self-acceptance, whatever your size, is good for you" and gushes about how much she loves her tubby body.

I've got news for you, fatso: That body ain't loving you back. It's killing you, plain and simple. If you know that and still fill yourself with garbage, then you're suicidal. And if you spread this deranged line of thinking to others, then you're homicidal, too.

If there's one part of the article where I felt some real sympathy for her, it's when she described her attempts to lose weight. She talks of the misery of counting calories and the pain of exercise.

That sounds like torture to me, too. One of the greatest lies of this Age of Obesity is that the road to health is through pointless exercise and needless dieting. You don't need to run marathons or count calories -- just skip all the unhealthy carbs and processed food, and your body will take care of itself for you.

Instead, the "fat nutritionist" turned back to donuts. She even boasts of eating them while working in a diabetes clinic. In her twisted mind, the image of a young, overweight girl munching away on donuts is somehow comforting to the people now dealing with the ravages of that lifestyle.

Give me a break!

She should take a good look around the clinic -- because if she keeps this up, in 10 or 20 years, she won't be there as an employee -- she'll be there as a patient.

But I guess that's one more lesson they don't offer at her school. By the way, she's still in school -- the title "nutritionist" is every bit as deceitful as the size-acceptance nonsense she spouts, since she has no degree.

Just take a look at her blog, if you can stomach it: "Only in certain, limited contexts does WHAT a person eats play a direct role in their health," she writes (emphasis hers).

What sort of nonsense do they teach in schools these days?

What you eat is the single biggest factor in your overall health, and anyone who disputes that is missing fat in the one part of your body that needs it most: the brain.

So trust the "Fat Nutritionist" about as much as you'd trust the "Drunken Doctor" or the "Sloppy Surgeon."

They're all bad medicine.” W.C. Douglass, M.D.

“Processed sugar is one of the worst things you could possibly put into your body. Those innocent and tasty little white grains not only weaken your immune system, but they fuel cancer cells and jack up your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and all manner of other health problems.

That's why the American Heart Association recently released some guidelines for sugar consumption. According to the AHA, women should have no more than 100 calories of sugar each day; men are allowed only slightly more -- 150 calories per day.

You'd be surprised at how quickly those numbers can add up.

Along with those guidelines, the AHA released a list of foods that they consider "surprisingly high" in sugar. It's a long list that includes ketchup, fortune cookies, flavored alcohols, baked beans, barbeque sauce, lemonade, flavored popcorn, and granola bars.

Just one 12-ounce can of non-diet soda has about 130 calories that come solely from sugar. And think about how much sugar people dump into their morning coffees.

Salad dressings are deceptive, too. Everyone gets the idea that a salad is always a healthy option, but drenching it with reduced-fat salad dressing can be like sprinkling your greens with chocolate. Just one cup of reduced-calorie French dressing contains a whopping 58 grams of sugar.

With the list of sugar's negative health effects piling up, it's time to think twice about what you're funneling down your throat.

Remember, sugar can lead to increased risk of breast and colon cancers, diabetes, kidney damage, depression, hypertension, moodiness, migraines, and more.

And the excess pounds that sugar causes you to pack on have their own dangers.

There are certain diseases that everyone knows go hand-in-hand with obesity: diabetes, cancer, and heart disease come to mind. But here's a new one to add to the list:

Obesity can contribute to Alzheimer's and other cognitive disorders.

Researchers at UCLA studied the brain images of 94 people in their 70s over five years. They found that clinically obese people had 8 percent less brain tissue, and overweight people had 4 percent less brain tissue. Apparently their brains even looked 16 years older than those of normal-weight people.

The researchers noted that most of the loss tissue came from the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain -- the area responsible for decision-making and memory.

With nearly one third of American adults tipping the obese scale, it's no wonder so many diseases like these are on the rise.

Now if that's not a good reason to cut down on the sugar, I don't know what is!

The failure of exercise.

If "I told you so" was a muscle, I'd have sprained mine ages ago.

By now, I'm used to the funny looks and eye rolls people give me when I tell them they don't need to exercise to lose weight. But something even funnier has been happening lately: I don't get those looks as much anymore.

It seems the cat's out of the gym bag -- more and more research shows that pricey gyms and human-sized hamster wheels do little to help you lose weight. Add that together with all the injuries and even deaths that are caused by exercise, and I can't help but wonder why people voluntarily put themselves through this self-torture in the first place.

Take a recent report in Time magazine -- you don't get much more mainstream than that. Yet there it is, an article titled "Why Exercise Won't Make You Thin."

The author of this piece, John Cloud, admits to being a self-punishing workout fiend. But unlike many of his ilk, he's started to notice something: Working himself into a sweaty lather hasn't put a dent in that "fat gut" that's still hanging over his belt.

Now, I know that's just one man's experience -- so don't bother sending in a bunch of emails telling me how wrong I am.

The bottom line is that Cloud's story just highlights what thousands of others experience every single day -- and what more and more research is showing, too. Despite the fact that more people are exercising now than in the past, more people are overweight than even before, too.

Take a look at this study published earlier this year in PLoS ONE. The researchers followed four groups of women who did varying amounts of exercise, from none to nearly three and half hours a week.

After six months, the researchers found no big difference in the four groups. The women who exercised may have lost a touch more off the waistline, but their overall body fat was virtually the same as that of the women who didn't exercise.

I don't understand why people still stand around scratching their heads over this issue. Sure, you can burn tons of calories when you exercise. But what happens once you step off the treadmill or get home from the gym? You can't wait to stuff your face!

Your body is simply crying out for something to replace what it lost, and in the end, most folks end up consuming more calories than they would have if they had skipped the gym and watched Jeopardy instead.

That means the bottom line is right where I left it: food.

Eat better, and lose weight. That's all there is to it.”

William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
