Hello there, champion of true wellness...

Have you ever heard yourself say: From tomorrow, I’m going to start a new diet. Or, from tomorrow, I’m going to start a new exercise program? I’m going to go running at 6 am every morning. What about, from tomorrow I’m going to cut out junk food or sugar? Or, from tomorrow, I’m going to stop smoking or quit drinking. Perhaps you’ve said, from tomorrow I’m going to be nicer to my spouse, or work colleagues?

The principle is, from tomorrow, you plan on being a whole, new improved you. And in the moment when you say it, you really mean it, don’t you? You’re full of conviction, and determined to make it happen. In fact, if anyone who knows you challenged you by saying sarcastically, 'I’d like to see you get up at 6am and go for a run', you’ll probably get defensive. You may even get a little angry. And you’ll hear yourself saying, ‘Just you wait I’ll show you, from tomorrow!’

But what happens the next day when your alarm clock goes off at 6 am? You roll over, hit that snooze button, and you don’t get up and go for the early morning run, like you said you would. Mid-morning comes, you open the fridge door and see that left-over slice of chocolate cake. You immediately think to yourself, ‘It would be such a waste to throw it away so I’ll quickly eat it, then there’ll be no more sugar in the house, and then I’ll start my new health program.' 

Mid-afternoon, you walk into the dining room and out the corner of your eye you see that half a bottle of Merlot you like so much. It seems to call out to you, ‘Drink me, drink me!’ Once again, the little voice in your head immediately starts to rationalize why you should drink it: ‘If it was a quarter bottle, I could pour it down the sink. But, it’s a half a bottle. That would be such a waste! So, I’ll just finish the wine, then there’ll be no more alcohol in the house, and then I’ll stop drinking alcohol and start my new health program.’

Suffice to say, by sun-downers you have a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other. You find yourself flipping through a junk food take-out menu after having another scrap with your spouse over something trivial, and why not? Let’s face it, you didn’t do any of the healthy and constructive things you said you were going to do, so you may as well just order take-outs and start again, From Tomorrow.  (Sure, we're exaggerating for dramatic effect but the principle is sound.)

Can you relate to this? Does it strike a chord in you? Be honest, has this ever happened to you? We bet it has. 

If so, don’t panic. You’re not alone. Every human being behaves in this way. But why? Do you have a split personality? Are you schizophrenic? Are you delusional? Why do you lose the plot?

It’s not so much that you say you’re going to do something, and you just don’t do it. It’s that you say you’ll do one thing, and then you do the complete opposite. You say you’re going to eat healthily, and then you go on a sugar binge. You say you’re going stop drinking alcohol, and you soon wake up with a hangover. 

What happens to you?

Well, we’ll let you in on a secret. The answer is simple yet profound. You probably think you’re one person. Right? 

It seems that way! You wake up in the morning, put your clothes on, go out into the world, engage with the people around you, and to you it’s just ‘you being you’. You appear to be responsible for what you say, and think, and do, and feel. But this isn’t the case. This is an illusion. There is a hidden truth. And we're going reveal it to you right now.  

The Truth Revealed:

You have two, distinct sides to you. They are polar opposites. It’s true! You are capable of being two completely different people! Henry Jones calls them your ego-mind and your true-self. 

This enlightenment is truly life-changing!

You see, when you become aware of this phenomenon – when you can tell the difference between these two aspects of yourself – then you’ll realize you have the power of choice. Yes, you can choose who you want to be. Make no mistake about it: Who you are is always your choice.

Pay attention now:

If you want to heal your body, then you need to consciously and deliberately practice natural and holistic healing techniques every day. If you want to be your true-self, then you must actually do things that connect you to your true-self every day. And, if you want to enjoy radiant health and vitality every day for the rest of your life, then you've got to live this way every day. It's not exactly rocket science, hey?

For this reason, and this reason alone, understanding the difference between your ego-mind and your true-self is the true starting point of every healing and wellness journey. 

This insight illuminates the pathway that leads to true wellness. In truth, this understanding is what you’ve been searching for your whole life. It’s the light in a world filled with darkness. It brings clarity to the decisions you make, and actions you take. Trust us, this single powerful insight is the key to your health, happiness, and abundance. In fact, this wisdom gives you the keys to your own kingdom.
