I have dedicated so much time to health and healing and learning and cleansing and yoga and eating greens and brown rice and juicing and I finally hit the proverbial wall. My health has passed the point of balance and is sweeping into the territory of doing what is "good" and "correct" and "perfect" - which inevitably for me is also followed by extreme guilt, anxiety and panic.
The point here, is freedom.
Everything changes: Nothing remains the static. Energy moves constantly, within and among systems. Thus, the diet that heals us must change as we change.
Everything has an opposite: Everything has a front and a back. Opposites are complementary, connected like two ends of a stick or two sides of a coin, and separated by degrees. Opposites may change into one another, and often do, either gradually or suddenly.
So I feel that A) I can't be surprised after months of kale that I would find myself in a almost desperate state for turkey, B) the key to any real health, healing or balance is to learn to listen to what it is we really need - it's a constantly changing ever-evolving living and breathing dance, and C) the most important thing is my right to exercise the freedom to choose for myself, and only for myself, what is right for me at any given time. Not because Macrobiotics say I shouldn't eat spinach, the colonic guy says I should drink juice for breakfast, or my dear father thinks I'm an idiot cause I don't eat steak.
Off in search of rainbow sprinkles...
