In one of my newsletters I reviewed a book by Charles Eisenstein called “The Yoga of Eating”, and I enjoy reading his wisdom and perspective very much.
He has just released an article on issues such as chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression and thyroid disorders; writing on this subject from a perspective of our own body wisdom and our connection to the world which I found very relevant and thought provoking. Here is an excerpt from the article:
“I have met countless people of great compassion and sensitivity, people who would describe themselves as “conscious” or “spiritual”, who have battled with CFS, depression, thyroid deficiency, and so on. These are people who have come to a transition point in their lives where they become physically incapable of living the old life in the old world.
That is because, in fact, the world presented to us as normal and acceptable is anything but. It is a monstrosity. Ours is a planet in pain. If you need me to convince you of that, if you are unaware of the destruction of forests, oceans, wetlands, cultures, soil, health, beauty, dignity, and spirit that underlies the System we live in, then I have nothing to say to you. I only am speaking to you if you do believe that there is something deeply wrong with the way we are living on this planet. ”
You can access the full article here, and I do believe that it is worth reading for an alternative insight into the multi-faceted aspects of these conditions.
