Our new theme song for the JediJoyRichShow is out!! JediRich did all the music production and I sang on the track. Thanks to Faith No More for their badass song we got to cover. It is such a heart felt song. I started crying after I sang it. We do care a lot!!!
Here is the link to the playlist on Apple Music.
We live in an extremely racist world. It is ridiculous to even attempt to deny this. It occurs every day countless times a day. It may occur by stereotyping or making judgments due to past experiences with similar people. It may occur in the name of safety or security.
It occurs automatically for a lot of people. They see someone of a different race or color then them and they immediately have an “opinion”. Opinion is another word for judgement or racism. If you look at a person and make an assumption due to their looks or skin color, than you are racist.
People often say, oh well I have an issue with a certain group of people because I was attacked one day or something. Let’s just say the most obvious and prevalent racism that occurs. What they say is I’m nervous of that “Black” man because I had a bag experience with another “black” man. That’s the definition of racism. You are making a judgment or stereotype due to racism only by the color of their skin.
No people are exactly the same. Let me reiterate that. No two people are exactly the same. Why I say this, is if you make any assumptions before meeting someone due to their race, skin color or culture, then you are being racist. There is no way to sugar coat racism. People are racist, especially a lot of white people in Las Vegas.
The reason why I bring up racism today, is Meek Mill experienced extreme racism over the Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas. Meek Mill was heading to see the DJ Mustard concert at The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas. He was met by a Security Manager at the Cosmopolitan informing him that he was banned from the property. They said they would call the police if he stepped out of his car for trespassing.
JediRich told me this story, I insisted there must be more to the story then that. I thought there was no way, the Cosmopolitan is turning away business in any manner due to racism. This seemed mind boggling to me. I understand that there is racism day in and day out, but this seemed like just poor business practices to me than anything else. Why in the world when Las Vegas, when they are not doing well, would they ever be refusing Baller guests like rappers?
I was under the impression their greed would out-way their racism. I guess I was wrong. The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas is more interested in keeping black people out, then having their casinos filled. Wow, this is even more shocking that they are letting their racism affect their pocket books. This is sad and disheartening to me.
I was hoping that we were progress as a society and see people as people. We are all here together on this planet for now. We know there are aliens, we know their is a vast Universe out there. We are wanting to head to Mars and the moon again. How are we still in 2019 fighting amongst each other? I was just thinking today, why do we have wars with people we will never meet in person? Think about that, why are we fighting with people we do not know?
Why are we judging people we do not know? All this is racism. All war is racism. How are we saying that every innocent person is responsible for the acts of a few individuals. For example attacking whole countries because terrorists attack us. Now who’s the terrorists when the US government has been slaughtering innocent civilians everyday overseas for over 30 years.
It all goes back to racism. Being racist at home is how you are able to be racist to foreign countries. If you are scared of your own neighborhood or people at the store, then you are being extremely narrow minded. The Universe has no use for racism. It has no use for racist individuals.
Racists are always going against the force. Stopping a black rapper on his way into a Casino is against the force. There was no reason for this. The individual that stopped Meek Mill is 100% opposite of a Jedi. He is a person that does not think outside of exactly what the oppressors advice him to do. He himself is an oppressor.
You know when asked why people in Nazi Germany condoned the acts of their citizens, they claimed they did not know what was dgoing on. They claimed they couldn’t smell the burning flesh of 6 million Jews a couple miles away. Tell that one to Satan when you meet him. Tell him how you had no idea racism is occurring everyday under and right in front of your nose.
Tell me you are not the same as Nazi Germany when you allow cops to brutally assault and kill innocent black people for no reason. Tell me you don’t just turn your head when you see someone needing your help if they are of a different race or color than you. Tell me your okay with establishments that have “black”lists banning rappers. Think about that “Black” list. Even the name is racist.
No person should ever be treated differently than another person just by the color of the skin. Not ever. That is the Universe’s rules. Break that rule and we will let the Universe deal with you. Some people may appear to get away with their racist actions in this life. But this is not the only life.
Do not worry their time will come that they will have to acknowledge who they are bigots and hateful racists. That realization in the next life is not going to be enjoyable for them I guarantee. I mean imagine that you were racist in this life and thought that was valid. Wow your eyes are going to be opened up to how simple minded and barbaric you are.
What a shame to live your life as a racist. You are missing out on the beauty of the world. What is the world without all the beautiful people? It’s a nice planet, but it would get real lonely and boring if there were only a few of us. How boring if we all looked alike as well. We already had that. People used to look more alike. Now we are more diversified and that is the way it should be.
Segregation is a form of depression and happens out of fear. People only want segregation when they are unhappy with their lives and fear that what they have will be taken away. They are so miserable that if they see anyone doing anything fun or different they immediately judge them. This happens a lot to the black community. Racist people are racist out of greed and fear. In or society the black community is still experiencing racism everyday.
Racist people fear that people will come into their communities and take the jobs and bring crime. They say this about the Mexicans coming into America. That is what President Donald Trump said. I quote “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” This is a real quote from the President during his campaign. No wonder racism is still alive and well. This is what the leader of the United States is teaching future generations to act and think. Be a racist and you can become President is what the young people are hearing. That’s a scary thought!!
Nunchucks are a perfect example of the force. I left the natural sound in this video so that you can clearly hear the force of these nunchucks in each swing. These are thick bamboo nunchucks. They pack a hard punch. You can clearly hear the force that is being generated through the centripetal motion.
If you have seen Star Wars and are still unclear what the force is, then pick up a pair of nunchucks. You can feel the force being transferred to and from you to the nunchucks. As you stop spinning the nunchucks, you will feel all that force enter your body. It’s quite an intense and fun sensation to feel.
Nunchucks are such a phenomenal exercise because they use the force. Any exercise that utilizes the force will give you the most impact with the least amount of effort on your part. For example with the nunchucks you can get a full body and mind exercise in about 5 mins that burns as many calories as when you went to the gym if not more for me. I also get a mind and concentration exercise. At the gym I used to zone out, so my mind wasn’t actively exercising.
If you follow and utilize the force, you will find that your life flows a lot smoother. The days that everything went wrong was because you were going against the force. You need to take a breath and restart on days like that. Go with the flow even if it seems like not the right option due to prior knowledge.
See that’s the thing, due to prior knowledge. The force will always be what your feelings are telling you to do. It will be the first thought in a panic that comes to mind. They call it your gut instincts or survival instincts or motherly instincts or any other name other than your feelings. All your instincts are, are your feelings. Listen to those always and you will never be let down. It’s guaranteed, because even something that seems inherently bad is not when it’s your decision from your true feelings.
I hope this makes sense. People often confuse feelings with learned behaviors. What you were taught is not your feelings. Your feelings are never wrong. What you were taught in the past, the way you were raised and what you know now can be and is often wrong. Your feelings are smarter than anything you could ever learn in a book!!! Your feelings are what keep you out of depression. Ignore your feelings and your feelings will stop feeling anything. That’s what we call depression.
A couple years back JediRich bought me my first pair of nunchucks. I thought it was a little nutty of him at first. I did not think this was something I was going to enjoy as much as I do. I tend to be negative about new ideas. I’m working on not saying No to everything.
JediRich bought me the nunchucks and I resisted for a bit. Finally he started picking them up and he was really good. I thought that looks like fun, so of course now I want to use them once I saw him do it. I am a little sister so I have a tendency to want to follow JediRich’s lead. Once I tried them I was hooked.
We have purchased so many different types of nunchucks now. We have 2 bamboo ones, 2 black rubber ones, 4 practice plastics ones, 2 light up ones, and one made of rataan wood. We have become what we would like to call nunchuck enthusiasts.
We enjoy watching all the old martial arts movies about Sonny Chiba and Bruce Lee. Those two men are the epitome of how the force can flow through an individual. The way that Bruce Lee moves his nunchucks and body can only be explained and be possible because of the force. He is a master of the force. We should all strive to even have a minuscule amount of force knowledge as Bruce Lee.
We as Jedi strive to become masters of the force. There have been several of these past Jedi Masters who where able to document their martial arts journey on film. If you have any doubt or confusion of what the force is, then swing around some nunchucks and you will feel it.
Nunchucks are one of the easiest ways to feel the force flow through you. Swing a pair of nunchucks around and then stop and you will feel the force transferring through your whole body. They are a complete mind and body exercise. You burn a ton of calories, because so much focus is required to keep them in motion and not hit yourself.
One of the most beautiful things about nunchucks is that they are a weapon of massive training. In order to ever use these as a weapon you have to train for a long time. In that long time you are going to hurt and injury yourself more than you could ever dream. This weapon requires you to beat the hell out of yourself before the Universe will ever allow you to use this weapon for protection.
People that are interested in learning nunchucks are people that are interested in learning about how to use the force of the Universe. These are not the same people that are interested in destroying the Universe. That’s why people that are trained in nunchucks are not a threat to other citizens.
Nunchuck experts are not the problems in society. The mental and physical capacity to withstand the pain and training required to become a nunchucks expert will weed out the people that want to hurt people. Those people will not enjoy beating themselves up for years before they ever have the opportunity to hurt another person. See nunchucks already have a natural safety seal. It’s not for the pussies.
Nunchucks are a beautiful art form. People that are going around and hurting other people intentionally are not brave individuals. They would be the people that would choose a gun or a knife in a fight. They are not looking for an art form that takes years to master. This is why nunchucks are a weapon that should never be feared.
A master of this art respects his chucks. These become a piece of you. You would never attack someone out of the blue with nunchucks. That almost seems comical to me. It would be a tough defense, even if someone was attacked by another individual and and had their nunchucks on them. The chances of them having them in the exact location where they could be a useful defense would be rare. JediRich knows, he got attacked and couldn’t even get to his nunchucks in time. He was hit on the back of the head with a rock.
Nunchucks are about mastering this beautiful art that is all about the force flowing through you in a fluid movement. Hateful crimes is the opposite mentality of a nunchucker. You cannot pick up nunchucks and immediately hurt someone. You will end up hitting yourself in the head instead. Believe me, I’ve hit my head more times than I can count.
The reason why I bring this all up, is, they made nunchucks illegal in California. Even owning them in your home on the wall as a collector is considered felony possession. Let me say that again, even if you buy collectible nunchucks and put them on the wall you can go to prison for this in California. They arrested a film owner who had some old props and weapons from the films. He went to prison. This is absolutely insane to me.
Think about this, two sticks tied together in your possession, even hanging on your wall can send you to prison for felony possession. Folks, the ninny nanny patrol have taken it too far. They are claiming it is because some kids hurt themselves and the soccer mom PTA board voted to not let kids have anything that might give them a bruise or bump. God forbid, a child learn to be tough.
This is not right, and it is down right wrong. Year after year we as Americans give away more of our rights. As Joe Strummer from The Clash says in “Know your rights”, “You Have The Right To Free Speech As Long As You're Not Dumb Enough To Actually Try It.” I really cannot day it any better than Joe right there.
We give away so many rights without even thinking twice. Every time we have any kind of tragedy, people line up to have more of our rights and freedoms taken away. The country has elected a President that wants to make this country a dictatorship. It appears everyday that he is getting closer to that. We give away a little bit of our freedom every time we make safety allow laws that say two pieces of wood tied together is a felony.
There was a time when people survived and figured things out on there own without laws and government. This is possible and is more possible now that we have the internet. We realize now that our federal government has no control. Their control is an elusion. If it wasn’t then why did 33 states violate the federal government and make weed legal.
Our government is all mirages, facades and illusions. There are about 20 people at the top that go back and forth arguing over greed to pretend to appease the people. We are in eight wars almost nine right now. We have been in solid wars for over 30 years now. There was not one moment in those 30 years that we were not sending out innocent 18 year olds to die for the Republican and Democratic Political greed.
There is no other reason we are still at war, except for greed. Our federal government creates a messed up socialism by entering the military. We are technically a democracy unless you are in the military. Then we are socialists, but our countries version of socialism is that you have to be willing to die for your country in order to get some food, shelter, free education and health and dental care.
Send your 18 year old off to war and if he lives then he can have free health care and money for education. I know this because I was one of those poor kids that the military seemed like a good option for education and hey our World Trade Center just got attacked, so who wouldn’t want to help support their country. Yes I was 17 years old. I signed up for the military 6 months after 9/11 and then I left for basic training September 24, 2002. A little over a year from the tragic event.
They used this event for years to pull at the heart strings of Americans. We all want to help and support each other. We do not like when other countries attack our land. But hey let’s step back Federal government. The reason we are attacked has never been unprovoked. We have been literally messing with and involving ourselves in things that have nothing to do with us for over 30 years. To be honest I’m surprised we have not been attacked more.
Oh everyone shrieks at that comment, because you know it’s the truth. The US Government are a bunch of greedy assholes that go over to other countries and rip off their oil and resources and claim we are keeping the world safe. 30 years of wars doesn’t feel very safe now does it.
I have struggled with eating disorders most of my life. My mom had eating disorders and was super weight conscious. This put a lot of pressure on me as a young girl. I knew at a young age that being thin was super important in our society. My mom viewed being thin as self control and put you closer to God. My mom was very religious.
I started out being anorexic. I would eat 300 calories a day. I figured out that l could eat three yogurts that were 100 calories each and fat free. Who would have known I was consuming tons of sugar. Each one of those yogurts has close to 50 grams of sugar. I was quickly falling into the eating disorder diet that consists of all sugar.
I decided to become Vegan during this time to be thin. I found out that being Vegan made me fatter due to all the breads, gluten and grains I was eating. This drove me nuts, so I finally resorted to throwing up all meals. I remained a Vegan till about 17 years old when I entered the Air Force. I figured since I was throwing up, it did not matter if I ate vegan or not. So I started eating everything and anything.
A lot of us emotionally eat. We eat to replace love, sex, happiness money, anything to make us not feel for a minute. Sugar is a drug. People become addicted to sugar. It’s the hardest drug to quit, because you can never fully quit sugar. You need sugar to live in the fact that everything eventually breaks down to sugar. You need sugar but it can easily kill you and is a super powerful drug. It’s a predicament.
People do not want to be addicted to sugar. Most people are not even aware they are addicted to sugar. Sugar is why so many people are struggling with their weight. Sugar causes so many health issues. That’s the main problem with eating disorders. When you have an Eating Disorder, your body is living off of sugar, because sugar is the easiest instant energy to your body.
Let me explain this a little more. When you have an Eating Disorder your body is in emergency mode. It will look for the easiest and most convenient ways to get energy. So your body will crave tons of sugar and then it will want to store all the extra sugar as fat since your body is not trusting you.
When you have an Eating Disorder, you confuse your body and brain. Your body does that trust that your brain is making the right decisions. So it puts fat storage for emergencies usually in your stomach region. That’s why you end up gaining weight over the years, even if you throw up every meal.
Eating disorders end up giving you a body that you do not desire. You want to be thin, but you end up looking awkward and too thin. What happens with Bulimia is you get tiny arms and legs, but a big bloated mid section and usually a bloated face and big head. This is the bobble head effect that girls get. What happens is their head becomes disproportionately large compared to their tiny body giving a bobble head appearance.
People start to get even more self conscience with an Eating Disorder, because their body becomes strange and unproportional. No one wants to look the way bulimia eventually leads to, but the disorder gets out of hand and you don’t have a choose. The biggest signs that a girl has an Eating Disorder is if she has tiny legs, huge knees, a large head and carries her weight in her mid section. As you can see in all my old photos.
At the end of the day, you look so much better and healthier if you eat all Organics, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Caffeine Free, Alcohol Free and Low Sugar. Eating disorders are never going to get you to your dream body. You will always feel awkward and guilty if you are doing an eating disorder instead of eating healthy and taking care of yourself. Bulimia is never a smart option. It will lead to weird weight pockets and health problems. Throw bulimia out the window, switch to Organics.
I (JediJoy) have struggled with eating disorders and eating issues most of my life. I feel the way, I always wanted to feel now that we eat all Organics, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Alcohol Free, Caffeine Free and Low Sugar. I had a dream weight and body so I thought.
At 34 years old, eating the way we do, I have the best body I have had in my entire life. I never had that fantastic body when I was young, because I started messing with my diet and food intake from the time I was around five.
My mom was super weight conscience. She always pointed out overweight people to me. She believed that weight management came through restrictions and having self control. Now that my mom killed herself, she has seen the light on the other side. She feels bad for blaming people for their weight problems.
Since 1985, the food industry started putting Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOS) in our food supply. They claimed they thought it would help solve world hunger so we never ran out of food. In reality it was just a bunch of greedy billionaires who wanted to get richer. They wanted to make things cheaper and faster. They also wanted people to have more convenient food, so they could work more.
One of the disadvantages of woman joining the work force, is that less homemade food was being made. It was all about fast, efficient and tasty in the 80s, 90s and up to now. Most woman work full time and do not have the time to prepare meals for the family. So we have had to resort to artificial, packaged and processed foods for meals.
This is where some of the disconnect occurs if a Vegan diet is healthy or not. A vegan diet years ago was, and can still be extremely healthy. Not all vegan diets are healthy. In order for it to be healthy the diet has to be all organic, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy free, high protein and low sugar.
It’s important that the food comes from the earth. Organic needs to mean from this earth originally. Anything made in a lab is not healthy, we are finding out. The reason is, is that I ur body does not know how to process the artificial foods as anything other than sugar. The artificial, GMO food tricks your brain. Your brain cannot classify it so it treats it as sugar. Makes sense, since all things ultimately break down to sugar.
The problem with your body classify these items as sugar, is that it then thinks it needs to produce tons of insulin to compensate. Since your brain thinks it took it X amount of food as sugar, so it will compensate with the equal amount of insulin. The issue is you did not actually take in that sugar, so now you have too much insulin. Too much insulin tells your body to store fat. Hence why any artificial or GMO ultimately leads to weight gain.
This is a similar process that occurs with Caffeine. When you consume caffeine, your blood sugar rises, when your blood sugar rises, your brain once again tells you to produce insulin. Then once again you have too much insulin which tells your body to store fat. This insulin issue is a huge reason why over the years people are gaining more and more weight.
It’s super important if you are doing a vegan or any diet that you stay away from artificial anything. Avoid artificial meat. That’s going to have the same problems. Anything your body does not understand that did not come from this earth, it treats as sugar. If you want to stay thin and feel great, then you have to eat only organic food from earth. Not just things labeled organic. It has to be organic and from the earth. For example fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, not artificial meats or anything fake.
That’s the best thing to remember is to eat things from the earth. We eat all Organics, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Alcohol Free, Caffeine Free and Low Sugar. If you follow those items I listed, then you will find that the pounds shed off and you feel the way you always dreamed or imagined you could feel. Better than you even felt as a child. Especially since, most of us have been eating bad food since we we were children.
On a different note, but similar note. One of the big reasons the food is getting so bad is because of the politicians, especially President Donald Trump. Once Trump became President he started deregulating everything. One of the things they deregulated is Organics. Now we have a lower standard or Organics than any other country. Our environment has seen an insane impact since Trump took over and amped up the coal mining. We see trains full of coal riding by everyday. It’s one of the most inefficient, harmful and toxic to the workers way to get energy.
Donald Trump has never and will never have the people’s interest at heart. Even the thought of that makes me laugh. Did anyone believe that one of the most selfish men alive would become President to make anyone but his family and cronies rich? If you thought he was going to line your pockets, you may want to have your eyes, ears or head checked. Donald Trump never had any intention of helping anyone but himself and the most ass kissing greedy people he has around him.
The people around Donald Trump are almost worse then him. They sold their soul to greed and the opportunity to kiss that nasty fat ass day after day. He may even get elected again, so those cronies can have another four years of puckering up. I hope he eats stinky burritos and his Mexican taco salads he likes.
On a more serious note Trump is creating monopolies. This should be alarming coming from the guy who has told us numerous times how much he admires dictators and how he would like to end the presidential term limits and build walls to keep people out, or keep us in? Think about it. He loves meeting with dictators. He loves picking their brains to figure out how he can turn our democracy into a dictatorship.
Trump just allowed AT&T to acquire Time Warner. Randall L. Stephenson is the biggest share holder of AT&T who is also the top donor for Trump’s campaign. What that means is Trump’s biggest donor now has one of the biggest companies in the world and owns most of the media. Now Trump and Stephenson can control exactly what goes out on a ton of the media outlets. Which means Trump will have a good shot of becoming President again, since they can brainwash through Stephenson’s media outlets.
This should be scary folks. Our country is on the brink of the ninth war, becoming a dictatorship, allowing monopolies, building walls, shutting out immigration, destroying the environment. All of these things are problems to the Universe. This is how entire planets get wiped out. We need to get our cocky shorts off. The Universe might take us all out pretty soon. Or if we go to war with Iran, then we will all just blow each other up with nuclear weapons.
2020 is an important Presidential campaign. Do not elect this arrogant white supremacist again. For all we know the Russians friends and relatives of Donald Trump will hack our elections again and our votes will not count anyway. But at least don’t be the one that voted to elect this man. It will bring negativity on your life if you elect or agree with a man like Donald Trump. You will be held accountable for this choice. The man is a hateful menace. Your vote will let the Universe know if you are the same type of person as Trump or not.
I hope this video makes you smile. I was depressed for so many years and had stopped being silly and dancing while I cook.
I am finally over my depression. It took years of hard work and my JediRich. JediRich has been through so much with me. I have overcome alcoholism, bulimia, Caffeine addiction, sugar addiction and grief. JediRich helped me every step along the way. I have screamed at him to leave me the fuck alone more times than you could imagine.
I used to always run away when I first got with JediRich. I would get drunk and take off for hours, sometimes even a whole day. He would panic, because he wouldn’t know if I was dead or alive most the time. One time I ran off in Panama when I was drunk. I ended up locked in a room with no windows or air conditioning for 24 hours by some locals. JediRich contacted the embassy and everything. They thought I had been kidnapped. I basically had the guy ended up finally unlocking the door and let me go after a day.
My bulimia and alcoholism hand gotten so bad that I would faint often in public. I was fortunate enough that every time I fainted someone was miraculously there to catch me. Thanks mom for watching out for me.
It must have been a nightmare to my mom to watch me suffer for about 12 years after she died. She was living in hell during that time because of my pain. Now she is so happy. We can talk everyday. She comes along with me to do errands. It’s actually pretty awesome having so many loved ones pass away, because they guide you while you are still here. It’s nice having someone in your corner on the other side.
It’s super important for me to express myself, since I was depressed for so many years. I love writing my blogs and taking pics, selfies and making videos. Some people may not understand why I am so honest on my blogs. It might take people back a minute at the stuff I say.
The thing is I have a dead mom, brother, grandparents, dead brother in law and dead father in law. So I honestly do not care what people think of me. All I want to do is help people feel better. Everyone has had trials and a hard life. We have grown up during war time. All of us. We have been at war for almost 30 years. We are currently in 8 wars almost 9. This is a huge cause of depression. Our whole society and world is depressed.
The main reasons for depression are:
We eat all Organics. We eat GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Caffeine Free, Alcohol Free and Low Sugar. I cook every meal at home. I am making organic steak and organic beef burgers in this video. JediRich and I only eat food that we cook and small amounts of fruit, vegetables and almonds all organic. This has helped me get over bulimia and helped JediRich lose over 125 lbs.
