The pursuit of my life is not simply physical fitness, but mental fortitude. The active mind is a happy and healthy mind. We evolved from a restless species of pathfinders, eternally seeking to gaze from the next rise .
In our sedentary adaptations we face an evolutionary mis-match, our brains hardwired for rapidly changing environments clashing with the mundane, repetitive lifestyles so many of us face.
Its time to remove the training wheels. Boldly step off your hamster wheel of mental complacency. We are intimately related to the Avatars our souls reside in, and this body can either be your prison, or your oasis. Your body is your temple, your eternal sanctuary of thought and expression. The neurons of your brain flood with the energy of your thoughts. Surging down your spinal column, they race to your limbs. Fingers fly over a keyboard, faster than radio waves. Legs sprint, crouch, accelerate, compensate, send your heart and mind speeding over terrain unimaginable.
Join me as we take a walk through my soul.
My name is Cahill, and I am a camposino, a cowboy, hippy, and academic. I say I was born and raised in Colorado, grew up in Kansas, became an adult in Florida, and became a man in Oregon. I discovered the depth of my soul in the dense green of Panama's jungle. My purpose, like all of those in our Tribe, is to help you reconnect.
Feel your body lift from the ground as you ascend a mighty epiphyte hanging low to the forrest floor. Babbling creek and giant palm descend into the green abyss. As you climb higher your strength grows, you feel your biceps surging with strength. Hands morph into machines made of muscle and bone, evolved over million years of Hominin lifetimes. You feel the beginning of panic as your strength begins to falter, but you push on.
REACH. CLAMP. PULL. REACH. CLAMP PULL.
You feel your movement begin to optimize. Your elbow aligns with your shoulder in beautiful symmetry. Your arms begin pulling in even, pure ratios, erratic movement ceases. Sinew flows over bone as smooth as silk, but as strong spring rain. No longer climbing, you are flowing into the canopy, a beautiful ballet of muscle and flesh.
As you stare into the jungle you see what your body can achieve. Your skin betrays your secret. You were bread for frost and snow, skin perfected to absorb as much sunlight as possible to maximize your potential for excelling in a frigid world, not this emerald jewel before you. But you are Homo Sapien adapted for environmental plasticity, the desire for unknown environments flows through your veins. Environmental adaptation is as much a part of you as the elk's antlers are part of them.
Throw everything you have at your intellect and mental strength every minute of every day. Don't go places, Move places. Think of every muscle as an instrument, conduct a beautiful symphony of thought as you flow through this world. Feel your lungs surge with life as you bring in joy, love, and compassion. You are alive, right now, this very moment your lungs churn oxygen into your blood stream as it races to your heart, pumping through your entire body. Feeding your ravenous muscles as your Avatar works tirelessly to keep you alive.
Treat it with respect and admiration as it never sleeps. While you fly away into alien skies during your deepest slumber, your Avatar rages on into the night. Fighting away pathogens and toxins, keeps your body maintained and repaired. For when your awake and feel refreshed, feel the miracle that you are still alive. Thank your Avatar and thank the World for evolving you to be this way.
Our mission is very simple. Help you achieve yours.
If you wish to move your body with love and joy, with savagery and mental fortitude, step into my world. I will share all that I have been lucky enough to discover along my path. But strive to make it your own, do not take my words as anything but my Truth. Until we meet again,
find your own Truth inside yourself, but we, your tribe, are here to help you along the way.
