Barefoot and terrified: When did we become afraid of Mother Earth?


Dearest readers, A recent televised evening news broadcast announced the arrest of a woman at a North Carolina daycare center on charges of child abuse for breastfeeding another woman’s baby. When I heard this story, I thought about how fearful and mistrustful we humans are of one another. Especially in America. We are afraid to touch […]

Syntropy: the power to create harmony


Dear readers, Every force in the Universe has a push-pull action. Everything works in pairs, pulsating. Male-female, positive-negative, null-node. The society in which we currently live is driven by primarily entropy, which is the chaotic, disintegrating force – Newton’s 2nd law. We are taught that aging and death are inevitable, that time is linear, and […]

A few thoughts on packaging and healing

Healthy Relativity


Hello readers, A big part of self awareness is the realization that each being is unique.  I like to pay attention to health-related issues and publications, and I am noticing an increasing consciousness that there is no specific diet that is ideal or that promotes optimal health for everyone.  Basically, each person, as we evolve, is being […]

Against Nature: Creative and Healthy Humans


Hello readers, As creators of culture, humans tend to historically set ourselves apart from nature, maintaining a complex and dual relationship with our self-images and our self-facts.  I do believe there is a way to heal this schism in the way we see ourselves and in the way we function in the world.  In fact, […]

How Can You Tell If You Are Thirsty?


Hello readers, Currently, I am reading (among other books!), “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water: You Are Not Sick, You Are Thirsty!), by F.

Guilty Pleasures: How Can We Responsibly Enjoy Life?


Hello readers, A question most responsible and caring people might ask themselves in the complex and globally connected world we live in is this: how can we make responsible choices that benefit ourselves and don’t hurt others?

Dust of the Earth: the Spiritual Meaning of Living in a Body


Hello readers, Recently, I haven’t been writing as much because my body has been occupying my attention.  More specifically, the center part of my body, which would correspond to the third chakra in Ayurvedic medicine.  According to Carolyn Myss (author of Anatomy of the Spirit, among other titles), the third chakra corresponds to the value […]

Musings on the future of health


Hello readers.  I don’t know how you all feel about your health and the choices available as far as what to buy, how to prepare it, and what constitutes a healthy diet for yourself and your family.  As a library employee, in addition to the Internet, I have ready access to a lot of information.  […]

The Solace of Food


                    Much of my recent research and reading has been related to food and health.  Food is a complex subject, because it is related to so many aspects of our lives: the physical health of our bodies, cultural and religious celebrations as well as secular festivities, […]

On Aging: Embracing or Recreating Our Bodies?
