Dear Family of True,
"Oh, I´d better stop" I said to myself. So I did, clinging to the handy tree that was hanging off the side of the cliff with me. Some moments are dramatic like that and get more headline news than "no thanks, no triple chocolate delight today", but the latter are the ongoing big life savers. Yes, but, well, but, iron will may get me so far on the road to staying away from sweeties, but how to balance the whole human so the unhealthy cravings reduce away? There is lots written on this subject, and I´m not going to repeat the love substitute stuff, although I certainly acknowledge it. I know that my "gimme, gimme, gimme" is a sign of something seriously out of balance that needs some attention.
Sweet from an Ayurvedic perspective is earth + water. Just that, not delicious, yum, yum, yum. "if I don´t get some I´ll die" but just earth + water. I´m craving earth + water has a different ring to it than seduction in a wrapper, hah!
So I´m experimenting on myself more systematically in a creative way not only with the diet. How to´bring earth + water combinations into my life in a healing way so that unnatural cravings simply fall away a little more each day.
I´m off to make a few pots and then dig in the garden.
