Pinky Swear

A pinky swear, a handshake sealed in spit, even a blood oath—from childhood we know that some commitments are special, and deserve to be marked with a special ritual.

What ritual of covenant have you participated in?

Tension

What happens in our lives, and in the broader world that touches us, is held in our bodies. Stress accumulates in the neck, the back, the stomach, in systemic changes such as inflammation. We carry the world with us, sometimes in ways that are painful. Finding ways to constructively hold things in tension is always a challenge.

What tension are you currently experiencing?  What helps you to let it go?

Band-Aid Solution

A Band-Aid solution is a small or temporary fix. But sometimes what you need is just a little bit of help to solve a problem or hold on until things get better.

The Soul is Not More than the Body

“I have said that the soul is not more than the body,
And I have said that the body is not more than the soul,
And nothing, not God, is greater to one than one’s-self is….”
―Walt Whitman

Under Your Skin

Under your skin a vast network of miracles is taking place. Without your giving it a thought, red blood cells deliver oxygen while white blood cells stand guard against invaders. Your gut transforms food into nutrition, your liver filters toxins, and at, the tiniest level, inside your cells mitochondria are hard at work powering the whole dazzling array. You’re amazing!

What about your body amazes and delights you?
