I dreamt the other day where it was explained that ‘When the souls time is up, we go.’ Profoundly simple. None of us knows how long we have and every soul, every being on this planet is sacred.
When do our desires coincide with the acquiescence of death…or do our extraneous pursuits busy us to deflect us from the dark contemplations of the inevitable endings on this plane and the nebulous beginnings in another?
Just 48 hours from her death my mother complained about not getting the new shoes we were working on for her. At 86, riddled with cancer and under hospice care, I’m quite sure the nursing home staff buried our request under a ‘Why Bother’ tab.
Were her feet troubling her? Did she want one more new material thing before the inevitable transition or did she seek to be grounded feeling already too otherworldly? She was already talking to People on the other side, some I knew, some not, one foot tenuously planted here and the other flying beyond our full comprehension and our purvey of knowledge.
Kindness is what we need in these transitions we must do. Compassion is the souls ultimate calling as we send light, love and grace out into the world
This blog is about health by way of living/leading a plant-based lifestyle. It is not a diet, it is a life pursuit. Diets suggest to most of us, a temporary event to reach a particular goal, but your ongoing health is far more important than losing a few pounds only to gain them back again later, or get glowing skin and tone just to fall off that wagon a few months from now. While I believe there is a God and I believe we all have souls, and I firmly believe that being spiritual helps one along the journey here, I purposely espouse no religion. This blog is not about preaching, but about health. I am not here with all the correct answers that at one time I really thought I had. No, this is not a conversion to SDA, to Christianity, Budha, Judaism or Bahai faith or any such. I simply hope here to spur your own curiosity and internal flame and allow you to do your own communion with God and choose accordingly. In my teens and 20’s I knew it all. I knew who was going to hell and no sense to argue that point with me because I knew I was correct. I am old enough to realize I can be wrong. New information arrives daily and old information is renewed as we read once more and gain sometimes new and groundbreaking insight. Where we sit depends upon where we stand and the teacher appears when the scholar is ready.
So I am full swing into a bathroom remodel. My contractor is placing the faucet clear across the tub, making it a 40inch stretch across the tub to fill it. This is due to space issues and a huge soak tub I am looking very forward to using someday soon! He measured out the space and asked can I reach it? I did a warrior pose, placed one hand behind me and the other as if reaching for the imaginary faucet. My contractor stated I did not have to go all fancy but this, for me, was how to balance and reach. I said, yes, now I can reach and hopefully when I am 100 + I can do the same, but what if not? He exclaimed that I would never see 100. I asked why on earth not? His mother is 86 and I will soon be 60. I am vegan, and am just doing my best to detox daily. Only God knows the hour etc. People, we shortchange ourselves with this mindset that we expire so swiftly. Bringing up the bible there were folks living for hundreds of years. But here is the crux of this whole point: We want to honor our temple, our seat, we want to take very good care of ourselves so that we can remain useful and engaged in life, serving our purpose the entire time. When we are sick and frail, life is a drag and we are not in the best position to give aid to others. Life is so vibrant when we are glowing.
Along with helping folks as a Plant-Based Lifestyle Consultant, I market organic skincare, body care and home care products. Most supplements, over 95%, are a toxic synthetic stew and skincare can have hundreds of carcinogens and hormone disrupters in it. The body has a real burden to carry so the point becomes daily detoxing while avoiding as many new toxins as feasible. Once you get into these good habits, it becomes, well, habit. It gets easier.
One of the lines I represent is Essante, which offers PH nutrition, probiotics, organic and wildcrafted superfoods and shakes. Below are links to help you be your healthiest. I am happy to answer any questions you have. Live long and strong, until your souls time is up.
