Have Your Cake and Eat It?… Impossible!...

Note: The above is an old saying which means, if you eat the cake you no longer have it. Almost every patient that looks for help from a psychotherapist seeks something at the outset that they can never get: They want relief from the consequences of their self-destructive behavior but they don’t want to change their behavior. At this time Costa Rica can be likened to a neurotic individual who is driving itself more and more crazy every day. Like those who suffer from self-administered conflicts, Costa Rica is on a collision course toward self-destruction. The other day I heard a television commentator (all dressed in white to commemorate The International Day of Peace) say something like: “Thank God we live in this island of peace. God bless Costa Rica for that. Too bad...

For years now we have been exposed to a plethora of books, articles, “medicines,” exercise systems and machines, surgeries, spas, superficial professional psychological gossip, supplements, potions, substitutes, stratagem, subterfuge and on and on and on regarding the “plague” of OBESITY.

Apparently modern life has been reduced to a sterile, kind of one dimensional expression. That being the case, things are obviously not working out well. Amazingly enough though, that doesn’t seem to matter! The going thing is a “life style” guaranteed to lead to ever worsening forms of misery. Considering however, that that’s practically all there is and therefore that’s practically all we know, any suggestion that might indeed better our circumstances is met with glary stares or no response at all. Meanwhile, on goes the boorish, boring progression designed to mechanize human beings such that when their parts wear out they try to get new ones but eventually, the whole works gets dumped into a junk yard. One crude evidence of this “marvelous” design for living is the advice doled out by the...

Obesity Control Groups

The existence of these groups recognizes that obesity is a symptom designed to cover up the real cause of the disorder.
