Not Sick

 

I find myself yearning...still...to be just a little bit sick.

Barely queasy enough to slow me down, and lessen my responsibility.

I recently had strep throat and it tickled my itch to check-out.

Because I was sick, I couldn't eat much, so I didn't have my usual energy.

Without the full force of mind and body, I was content to coast.

It felt like riding a bike down a slight decline.  I could pedal if I wanted, but I didn't have to.

I could stay home under the guise that I was resting.

I dropped a couple pounds, and my waist felt wispy.  My muscles went into hibernation, demanding nothing.

Will I ever not relish this feeling of the empty belly?

Will it always arouse my senses as the smell of cigarette smoke and red wine?

Reasons For A Year Of Self-Care

self-care

I’ve taken a year’s leave of absence from my teaching job in order to restore my bodily health and more deeply explore how I can serve Mutual Flourishing.  I passionately believe that how we care for ourselves is intertwined with how we care—or fail to care—for the planet.  Since I’m fairly knowledgeable about planetary care but less-expert in self-care, I decided I needed to practice.

Forgive Yourself

Forgive Yourself

In December of 2011, I decided to head up to Calistoga for a few days. Calistoga is a small town in Napa Valley, about an hour from where we live. For the past few years, Michelle and I have each gone up there occasionally by ourselves for some personal retreat time. It’s been a great self-care practice that has benefited us both individually and as a family. It’s amazing how taking just a few days away can help me put things in perspective, recharge, and reconnect to what’s most important in my life.

Ready To Release Your Pain Body?

Release your pain body

In his book “A New Earth,” Eckhart Tolle describes the Pain Body as a “psychic parasite,” like an alien being that possesses you and causes you to be unconscious to your own and other's suffering. The result, of course, is more suffering.

Where The Intuition May Lead

healthy couple

I'm an advocate of following your intuition. I try to follow mine, but sometimes I overanalyze my gut feelings and sometimes I just decide they're wrong. Recently I have been led down a road that I am very excited about and the whole thing started with a spontaneous decision that could have only come from the "all-knowing" part of me.
