Loving the Bike TV: Rule Breaking and Anarchy

30

What if I told you one of the ways to achieve a Loving Life attitude was by breaking rules and promoting anarchy?  Well, that’s exactly what I’m doing in this week’s episode of Loving the Bike TV.  Before you think to yourself that I’ve lost it and x out of this post, have a listen to what I have to say.

Note: Below is an excerpt from the article I talk about in the video.

an·ar·chy Etymology: Medieval Latin anarchia, from Greek, from anarchos having no ruler

1 a : absence of government

b : a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority c : a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government 2 a : absence or denial of any authority or established order.

You know what? I don’t think it’s such a bad word after all. In fact that part where it explains it as “a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government” is pretty freaking amazing I must say.  Instead of a negative image, Anarchy is actually a word to create a calming, free, and positive picture.   It’s the kind of situation where people are free to think and do things without the threat of “dream killers” sabotaging their positive efforts.  As with that famous glass half empty or half full analogy, Anarchy can also vary depending on how you look at it…but I would be bold enough to say that a life of “Constructive Anarchy” is a beautiful life to live. That would be explained as a positive and beneficial deviation from the rules of society.

    Obviously catching up on a lot of old stuff since Pamela and I were on the road. This one is especially cool, and weird since I just left a comment about governments on one of your other segments. It may be just a different way of saying the same thing but to me its just.

    Don’t be sheep.

    We have always put that in front of all of our kids. Make your own choices, don’t just do something because the herd says its what to do. Don’t be afraid to be different, make your own choices cut your own path.
    And be careful who you select to be your source of “truth”.

      You guys definitely see the world like we do, and one of the reasons we connect so well. Thanks, my non-sheep friend.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
