Have a Good Balance Between Mind and Body

PL teaching for day #20
> Have a Good Balance Between Mind and Body…………..Being overly concerned ab out things, or overexerting yourself physically will cause you to be off balance mentally and physically. Be careful not to overdo things.

I read an article today by Geri Larkin, founder of the Still Point Zen Buddhist Temple in Detroit, Fashionista as Monk.  It was in the March/April 2012 issue of Spirituality & Health, if you can find it, it is a good read. Probably more for the women then the men, however, it applies to both if you’ve ever shopped and found that you are one size larger than you thought you should be.  After reading her fun thought provoking piece, I know that I will be more mindful of not what I eat, but of how much I eat.  I’m already a conscientious eater, my problem is quantity. Today’s  lesson today will be applied to my eating habits.

This teaching comes up every month on the 20th.  And every month, it has a different meaning for me.  Time to remember and put into practice, PL Principle 13.  Concerning food, I will not have complaints, likes and dislikes nor preferences; nor will I overeat, over drink nor eat irregularly.

PL Principle # 15   I will not do anything overly.

A balanced life, takes into account, all our needs.  Lets take a moment to reflect on how balanced our personal scales are.  For myself, I will work harder towards achieving balance

    Hi Q, I don’ t know if you still,want to be called Q but until you decide otherwise, Q is good. I enjoyed your thoughts on mindfulness in eating. Observing what And how much I eat is always very revealing to me. The key word for me is observing. It is so freeing to observe with love and take care of what is there. No likes or dislikes, no complaints about who I am or what comes up from the deep parts of me. That has been the real source of balance lately. To balance the inner, impulsive, intuitive child who doesn’t give a hoot about the rules … With the controlling, performance parent who lives only for the rule … And the higher self/adult who observes and gives everyone their rightful turn.

    Have a good, good eating and see you tomorrow C

  2. so true, yes tomorrow =^_^=
