Kung Fu Workout: Internal Power & Meditation

In this YouTube video by Kung Fu & Tai Chi Center, instructor Jake Mace leads us in a gentle workout meant to improve one’s internal power and energy. It features a mix of exercises from Tai Chi, Qigong, and Yoga.

Doing this the first time, I became aware of how stiff my body had become. I haven’t practiced yoga regularly for several years. Mace explains that these exercises are just as important as punching and kicking in martial arts training. He resented internal exercises in his teenage years, but appreciates them more as he gets older.

In Qigong and Yoga, movement is regarded as a type of meditation. Caring for our bodies helps us manage stress and think clearly. If you have never worked out hard before, or if you haven’t for a long time, this workout may be a good starting point.

Bitcoin News: Crash, Recovery, Just Another Week

In this YouTube video by Crypto Zombie, the host KDub reflects on the recent extreme drop in Bitcoin’s price, and its current stabilization. The price of one Bitcoin went over $40,000 last week, and its growth in the charts was practically vertical since Christmas. A correction was inevitable, and the question is how low it will drop. KDub lists some possibilities, and the lowest bottom seems to be just above $20,000. Just 2 months ago, $20K seemed like an unbreakable barrier to rise above.

When investing in Bitcoin, the wisest strategy is to buy when the price dips, or make small periodic purchases, and hold onto it regardless of the volatility. The overall trend has been one of growth. Watch Crypto Zombie’s video, and follow the link to further resources.

Narcissistic Control: When You Say, No More

In this YouTube video by Surviving Narcissism, Dr. Les Carter discusses what happens when victims of narcissistic abuse stand up for themselves. In these relationships, a narcissist is fixated on making the other person into something they’re not, and has no respect for the other’s individuality. When victims realize their self worth, they start setting up boundaries and hopefully cut themselves off from their abusers. The abusers will obviously lash out with loaded questions, demands, passive aggression, or even threats and slander. The victim is made to feel guilt and shame for not conforming, but it’s really the narcissist who has the character defect.

Listen to the video and see if these behaviors match with someone in your life, or public figures. In these days of political strife, carefully observe which politicians, talking heads, and business leaders exhibit signs of narcissism. The time will come when ordinary people need to detach themselves from the methods of control. There will be uncertainty over what is lawful, but you should base your activity on respecting your own personhood and that of others.

Free Speech In Crisis: Twitter Loses $5 Billion, Alternative Platform Parler Banned

In this Bitchute video by TheQuartering, host Jeremy reports on Twitter losing almost $5 billion in stocks after permanently banning President Trump. The riot in the United States Capitol building during Trump’s election rally is profoundly controversial. Twitter, Facebook, and the mainstream media claim Trump incited the riot to intimidate members of Congress. But his supporters maintain that the attackers were Antifa members posing as supporters.

Twitter and Facebook have both permanently banned Trump and hundreds of other conservative and populist profiles. Since December, YouTube has prohibited any videos discussing fraud and suspicious behavior surrounding the 2020 election. This has spurred a mass migration to alternative, up and coming platforms that claim to support free speech. Parler is the breakout hit among them, as it replicates the basic mechanics of Twitter. President Trump urged the rally attendees to bring their smartphones and cameras. They were able to capture videos supporting their claims of Antifa agent provocateurs. The footage they share online is a direct challenge to the mainstream media narrative.

Late last week, the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store both removed Parler. Parler could still be accessed from web browsers, but Amazon then removed the website from its servers. In the video, Jeremy explains that whatever your political stance is, it is a serious danger when 4 or 5 megacorporations can shut down free speech, and squash competitors through monopolistic powers.
