Soapbox Spotlight: Greg Kuhn

Today's Soapbox Spotlight is a guest blog with our first non-fiction guest.  Author Greg Kuhn is a professional educator and a futurist, specializing in framing new paradigms for 21st Century living. For the lastfifteen years, he has written primarily with his father, Dr. Clifford Kuhn,M.D., about health, wellness, and productivity.  Greg Kuhn lives in Louisville, KY with his wonderful wife and four fantastic sons (one by marriage) whom he couldn’t have published this book without.

Why Being in the Moment is Essential if You Want to Lose Unwanted Weight (and Can Help Writers Too)

Are you like many Americans?  Very concerned about your weight, yet seemingly unable to lose it for good?  If so, you might be surprised to learn that the problem is not you; you have the desire, the willingness, and good plans to follow.  The culprit is, in fact, the modern diet and weight loss industry’s continued reliance on old, outdated, and inaccurate science.  Science which has actually been replaced, right under our noses, by an amazingly precise one: quantum physics. 

And quantum physics holds the answers for how to finally lose your unwanted weight.  While radically different from the old science, quantum physics is verifiable, reliable, and immensely more accurate.  This new science offers you opportunities to change your body more simply and completely than you ever imagined, even without changing your current diet and exercise regimen.
For example, one of the simple ways you can engage the power of quantum physics to lose unwanted weight (as well as improve your life, generally) is to be fully invested in the present moment.  Quantum physics tells us that the past and the future are, literally, illusions.  When our focus is on the past and/or the future, the two most dangerous illusions confronting any person, we are disengaging our energy from the only time we can effectively improve our lives – right now.

Thoughtfully consider this: isn’t virtually every fear you have really about your “future” and, conversely, isn’t every resentment you hold really about your “past”?  In this present moment, you may notice, you have nothing to fear (unless you’re currently being chased by an angry dog and, if you are, how are you reading this blog?) and nothing to resent. 

Let me describe why living in the present moment is an extremely powerful method for finally losing unwanted weight.  Quantum physics describes the “past” as simply a collection of remembered “right now’s” and expending energy upon that collection gives it great (and, in terms of losing weight, problematic) power.  And, of course, the future is an illusion simply because it will never occur - when it gets here it will always be “right now”! 

The biggest problem with not being focused upon the present moment is that you can’t ever do anything productive to help you achieve your ideal body in the past or the future.  This may sound silly, but try it right now; do something, right now, “yesterday”.  And then do something, right now, “tomorrow”.  Definitely impossible requests, correct?  “Right now” is the one and only time you can ever take any action regarding your weight loss (or anything else, for that matter). 

Read Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat to discover exactly how to use the power of living in the present moment to finally lose your unwanted weight, as well as reveal scores of other secrets quantum physics has to empower you to achieve your ideal body.

That was amazingly insightful!  Thanks for stopping by, Greg!
