Advice from Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett, whose family had their fair share of mental illness, suggests that you float up with those wealthier than you. Defined in broad terms, starting with health, without a healthy mind, body, and spirit, it will be a challenge to enjoy the finer things in life. Warren suggests treating your body like a car, if one only had one for life, one would look after it, check the water, oil regularly, and have regular services.
Warren suggests that unless one is mindful about this, then there is a tendency to float down with the others. Heavens door is narrow and the path, whereas the gates of hell are wide with a vast highway approaching. Sexual relations is the number one fly or flop when it comes to wealth. Balance is what is aimed for. Sex without love is poison, whereas sex with love will bring mana from heaven.
Addiction robs a person of everything in time. Buffett suggests marrying up, but not financially. A revue of the billionaires in the US states most successful people met their partners in ‘church’. In Buffett’s case it was a person who could support him emotionally to help him engage socially. When one talks of soul mates it is a person who best counterbalances the other.
Put two money heads together and there will be sickness in other areas. A quarrelsome partner is like a leaky roof. In addiction the focus goes 100% on the substance of choice. Victor Frankl suggests gain a perspective for what will give purpose in life. If one is passionate about ones work, the money will follow and as Frankle says if one has a purpose this will take one over or around the walls that test ones resolve.

Can we be too old for rehab? In this post we examine legitimate age-related concerns while also explaining why it is never too late for second-chances in life.
Not everyone who goes to rehab will achieve long-term recovery. It is not just a matter of luck though. We examine here why some people are more likely to succeed than others.
Finding the most suitable rehab program can be a bit like tuning a guitar. If it is tuned too tightly the string might break, but if it is too loose, it becomes impossible to play.
A toxic relationship can be a bit like drinking contaminated water. It may seem to quench our thirst, but it is also making us sick.
An insecure attachment style can be like a bucket full of holes. It doesn’t matter how much water you put in there, the bucket continues to feel empty.
Sound therapy is based on the idea that vibration is a foundational principle of our universe. We can use sound as an aid to meditation and relaxation.
