The Source of All Generosity

Meditation, Eating (mindfully) and Exercise

I don’t know about you, but I live with the daily challange of doing these three things.  And what is so crazy to me is that, of course, the quality of my life in hugely enhanced when I do.  My, we are funny creatures.

Meditation

OK,  45 minutes is really spacious.  My goal is 20 mins.  Once I can just light the candle and incense at my alter, I’m good to go and oh, what peace awaits me.  Except when I get those intense spontaneous urges to get up and make a phone call that I forgot about – or some other trivial spontaneous arising of the mind.  So, I just sit and notice the urge and breathe. Ahhh.

Eating

I have fallen in love with Raw Food – Living Food. I listen to all the raw food podcasts – someone once said “if  you want to be closer to God, eat God’s food”.  I assume the rest of that thought is “as God presented it”.  Except for a little goat cheese and a glass of red wine (hmm, I guess that’s raw too), I am pretty much in it and love it.  Yesterday, I saw a bowl of potatoe salad and must say I had a momentary longing for the mayonaise I used to love so much.  It passed!

Exercise

Up and down.  Up and down.  My goal is yoga 3 days a week with a run and push-ups another 3 days.  When I get busy, it’s the first thing to go.  Then a week goes by and darn it!  So, back again with a new commitment.

I do believe that when we take care of ourselves, we become the source of  all generosity!

I would love to know how you do it.

To this day!

  1. I’ve been reading about raw/living food myself lately – thanks to the great book you lent me – “Eating for Beauty”. It has always made so much sense to eat as much fresh, vibrant, organic plant foods as possible and I already eat a 100% plant-based diet. Since reading about raw food I’ve been even more mindful of my food choices and I’m finding that my body is telling me to eat at least 50% raw – closer to the books’ minimum recommendation of 80%. Not only do I feel more nourished after my meals, my craving for fresh, juicy food is increasing even more!
