Self-Discipline and Damage

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

Like everything else in life it’s important to find the balance. Self-discipline is a very important ingredient towards accomplishment. You could describe self-discipline as pushing oneself towards where one wants to be. The word discipline connotes difficulty or challenge as other- wise discipline wouldn’t be necessary as the “discipline” is abstaining from indulgences and desires […]

The Absurdity of Humanity – Part 3

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

Have you seen the news lately? I don’t recommend you do it. There have been many difficult periods for large swaths of humanity throughout the millennia of human existence. Most of the major challenges have been brought upon by war, famine, disease, or tyranny, all of which still exist today. Yet now we have massive […]

The Absurdity of Humanity – Part 4

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

What are humanities’ biggest problems and how can we solve them? The answer to this is simple buts its implementation is so difficult that nobody wants to even acknowledge it’s the answer. Even though we all, through our moral and ethical allegiance to the teachings and examples of Jesus, Buddha, Mother Theresa and the 10 […]

The Absurdity of Celebrity

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

I am truly mystified by celebrity culture. How anybody could possibly admire a celebrity simply because they are famous is befuddling. This seems to lack common sense. Why should a celebrity get the attention, privilege, and admiration a plumber, farmer, schoolteacher, or nurse doesn’t get? I am aware that celebrities are part of an industry […]

The Absurdity of Humanity – part 2

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

This world has one problem and its problem has always been the same problem! This problem is the foundation of all other problems such as mental stress, physical toxicity, environmental toxicity, violence, poverty, inequality, and most disease. Due to technological advancements, these other problems have eaten away so much of the fabric of our well-being, […]

The Absurdity of The Woke-ism

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

As I witness the utter ugliness of the Woke liberal policies, policies that are allowing young children to make life-altering, health and medical decisions, and criminals are allowed to do as they please with no consequences. As I watch obesity being accepted as good and normal. As I watch history canceled, free speech canceled, and […]

The Absurdity of Walking

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

Walking as an exercise? What’s that about? Many studies say walking is the absolute healthiest exercise. But walking is completely egotistically non-appeasing. You might be wondering, what are the benefits of walking? In my culture health is constantly associated with an aesthetically pleasing body. For women, this means a slim and preferably hourglass figure and for men a V shape with obvious […]

The Absurdity of Not Letting Go

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

There are many universal laws yet underlining all of them is the law of “change.” You cannot imagine anything that you will not have to say goodbye to because everything will change. The philosophy of yoga is rooted in the statement that all human suffering comes from one place and that place is called “attachment.”

The Absurdity of Western Medicine

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

The title of this article may seem absurd to some, especially if you’re an M.D., D.O., Physician’s Assistant, nurse or simply have benefitted from allopathy. Believe it or not, this piece will not be a condemnation of allopathy (allopathy has way too much good) yet it will illustrate in the writer’s view at least its absurdity.

The Absurdity of Western Fitness

The Absurdity Series ● Bryan Kest

Psychological fact (I’ve been told): "The more you see something, the more you believe it." What if all I’ve seen is wrong? Western-based health and wellness practices (exercises) are misguided and completely inappropriate for health and wellness. It’s like a story I’ve been told so much, I believe it.
