A Blessing For One Who Is Exhausted, by John O'Donohue

A Blessing For One Who Is Exhausted, by John O'Donohue | Artful and Mindful Living | Scoop.it
"You have traveled too fast over false ground; Now your soul has come to take you back." In this poem, John O'Donohue, Irish poet, author, and philosopher, beautifully expresses the process of slowly returning to oneself that can heal the heart after times of suffering.

Facebook removes controversial 'feeling fat' emoji

Facebook removes controversial 'feeling fat' emoji | Artful and Mindful Living | Scoop.it
Facebook users will no longer find "feeling fat" among the website's arsenal of emoji available for assistance in the art of self expression.
On Tuesday morning, the double-chinned, pink-cheeked icon had disappeared from the site, after a Change.org petition called for its remova
Christi Krug's insight:

Does removing the icon take away the fact that we're being conditioned to criticize our bodies? This won't make the feelings go away.

 

I love what Jenna Abernathy at Divine Hunger has to say about the negativity that surrounds bathing suit shopping: "These unworthy messages spread into every interaction, even relaxing the sun." She offers *real* help for feeling fat: http://divinehunger.com/feel-bathing-suit-shopping-matters/

 

At the same time, Facebook's action is a positive in recognizing that this "fat-feeling" has gone too far. Let's recondition our minds and start loving our bodies.

Rilke on What It Really Means to Love

Rilke on What It Really Means to Love | Artful and Mindful Living | Scoop.it

Love is at first not anything that means merging . . . it is a high inducement to the individual to ripen, to become something in himself, to become world, to become world for himself for another’s sake." 

Christi Krug's insight:

I've treasured these words for a long time, and as I grow in wisdom they make more and more sense. When we stop trying to merge with the other and at last become a world for ourselves, we can finally offer love in the highest form.

Christi Krug's insight:

There are super-health benefits to following a Paleo eating plan, many of which I've experienced. However, I shun fads and formulas. I like Chris Kesser's balanced approach to Paleo nutrition, which includes beans and other foods - taking into account your own body and digestive system.

 

Be willing to give up foods (or other things in your life!) that don't benefit you. But don't get rigid about it. Most of all, listen to your body.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, October 15, 2014 8:18 PM

Are you one of those people that likes to spread toppings like ketchup, mayonnaise, hot sauce, even cheese on your food? Have you ever tried using cayenne instead or even Nutritional Yeast? 

 

Cayenne is well known as an anti-inflammatory food that is very spicy. Many spicy foods contain capsaicin, which is a fiery chemical compound that increases thermogenisis (increases the rate your body burns calories even while just eating food).

 

Health Tip: try using cayenne in place of ketchup or other toppings on your food and feel the difference.

 

Here's a neat Infographic on the "16 Benefits of Cayenne" from Green Living.

"Walking is going places. Over recent decades, walking has come to be widely viewed as a slow, tiresome, old-fashioned way to get around. But that's changing now as Americans recognize that traveling by foot can be a health breakthrough, an economic catalyst, and the route to happiness...The evidence that millions of people are finally walking again is as solid as the ground beneath our feet."

Brutal honesty. Although I wasn't impressed with the sister's comment, I was so impressed by the willingness to ask and answer hard questions. This is what the process of looking at hard questions can do in your life - and in relationships, the trickiest of all places, where we often lie to ourselves.  Note the husband's "truth" in the beginning vs. his heartfelt comments at the end. Powerful.
