uncertainty

be

and to

maintain

resilience and flexibility

as the sands of time

shift

my

How I’ve Maintained My Size 12 Figure For The Past 4 Decades…

Happiness – Healing Altar Series  – Photo by Toni Roberts

It’s all about my attitude towards food.

The only reason I eat is to maintain a healthy and useful body for as long as my Soul needs it’s “flesh suit” to navigate this third dimension.

And that will be for as long as SPIRIT needs the Soul to do ITS Work.

Food is neither my lover nor my emotional comfort in times of pain.

Nor is it a substitute for the understanding and acceptance of my life and self as they are. For understanding and acceptance…I go to SPIRIT…not food.

 

However…being the imperfect human that I am, there are times that I fall out-of-balance; become unglued and off-center. Those are the times I find myself living to eat instead of eating to live…I wake up one day realizing that the chocolate chip cookies and brownies to which I’ve been addicted for the past month or so…have taken the place of reaching out and giving…rather than seeking

I then wake up again and turn away from self-involvementself-interestsself-gratificationwhat I wantwhat I need

I turn once again to seeking how I may give…whom I can serveright now...right herewith who I am and what I currently possess

It is then that the hungry monster that demands appeasement with comfort foods and sweets disappears. And I continue eating to live…living to give

 

And that is how I’ve arrived at age 79, wearing the same size 12, that I did at age 40…and if I may add…a pretty fit and healthy 79 year old size 12…

destiny and purpose

in

could be discovered in this

distressed

diseased

confused

and

frightened

world

 

I’m

slowing down

Frozen II…

River, Wetlands & Sound – 1/7/18: Day 3 of Big Freeze – Photo by Toni Roberts

my

heart

lifelesscolddesolate

the cessation of all movement

absolute

stillness…

thus

my very being mimics

You…

my

Teacher…

my

Guide…

my

Orisha-Goddess…

Oshun

Queen of the River

She

Who causes the

Waters of Life

to flow…

 

I sit here

still

as

You

are…

awaiting

the

gentle kiss

of

SpringRebirth

empty

cold

alone

 

whatever swims beneath your frozen surface

not for me to see…
