~~~~~ DEZOMBIFICATION ~~~~~
Links to your right are excellent resources on Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD), neuroplasticity, traumatic brain injury (TBI & minimal TBI), and cerebrovascular accidents (strokes). They represent four of the most comprehensive sites in 'user-friendly' language on the brain, strokes, and 'cutting edge' research on mental health. To your left, beneath the image of the BRAIN is a video, that will clarify the difficulty in confirming mTBI in Wounded Warriors, as well as the master website for military families. Remember, subtle BRAIN injuries, rarely produce the loss of blood, because they bleed the essence of one's character and SOUL.
Dr. Rasayon, as a health consultant is available to any hue-man seeking a 'Brain Tune-Up', or any organization attempting to motivate their staff to optimize resources & talent. Detailed presentations on Brain Development, Culture & plasticity are available upon request. His work is best summarized in the book: Reality Check: A Manual for the Hue-man Octahedron & the Mystery of Melanin. The material is definitely "outside of the box," particularly the information on cultural conditioning and the role of the pineal gland in consciousness. This book culminates into a detailed chapter on how to address the total health needs of melanin dominant hue-mans (MDH). First 'Nation People" and MDH are the most marginalized victims in need of health care on earth. As it concludes, you are escorted on a poetic & stimulating tour of rhyme, composed to feed the heart ~ and the resonant song of the hemispheres of the brain.
On the horizon and yet to be completed is an opus on 'transcending the fear of death and dying', as well as, the process of ascension when "hue-mans" cross-over. Originally, this project was scheduled to be released in 2012. However, due to a visit by the insidious and uninvited stealth archivist of life, my goals on earth were rewritten. The divine order of the Universe and unimaginable power of the GREAT SPIRIT took my person - on an excruciatingly painful & personal journey. ~ ~ ~ This RESET my clock for Living. As a result, every iota and nano pulse that infuses my person CHANGED!
On the 28th of March, on the 88th date of the Gregorian year of 2012, my youngest daughter ascended from her Temple. Just as I saw her eyes when she entered this world -- I watched her pupils dilate when she left. This earthly experience literally ushered me into a realm of reflection that prompted me to intimately examine my current incarnation. "I" became immersed, even though; "I" had penned philosophical views many years before. "I" can state with 100-percent transparency, I HAVE NEVER KNOWN SUCH Psychic turbulence ~ PAIN ! As a result, my entire life was rearranged and the dates for completion changed. Moving forth, "I" am optimistic that it will be completed in the Spring of 2023. It has become apparent to me, that its release seems to be influenced by forces beyond my control. In fact, the Pandemic, and the loss of life among our CHILDREN created new chapters in this evolving project.
The final version of this renaissance document - on what happens to those we LOVE, when their vessel leaves this realm will be worth waiting for. I promise you; this will be as revelatory as my grand opus - REALITY CHECK.
For the curious, who truly seek to respect and glimpse into who she is, 'independent' of the limited views & beliefs of her Dad, feel free to click the Pink links on your right.
TEKAU was an OASIS
