Mind Detox

      BEAUTIFUL SLEEP,  AT LAST   We take a risk in showing this view of this amazing woman, but we aren’t shy about what a vegan diet, some exercise and few life tips from O · live can do for a mid-fifties lady who said she “hadn't slept a full night for two years”. Certainly we can’t take all or even any of the credit, but we were yet again another first stop on an amazing journey you too can take.  Can’t sleep, or haven’t for years? Unhappy with your body? Anxious, in pain, lost, depressed, oppressed, suppressed? Do you want to cry every morning and perhaps every night, and through much of the day but not because you are utterly amazed at the miracle of life itself, but because you expected it to be and feel different than what you are and feel?  Or rather, jazzed up about life, ready to change the world, excited to be even healthier than you are, more creative, successful, alive, energetic, educated? Ready to change careers or start one, and therefore want a good detox to get a connected first step.  Need inspiration?  Come.   Mary did.

Connected Is Healthy

Connected Is Healthy

Imagine you were unable to perceive the apparently discrete boundaries between forms. No beginnings or endings. No man-woman-child-dog-stone-flower-butterfly-sea-color-texture-tree. There were no beginnings or endings, no borders or skins, as there are no drops but only oceans. Just an infinite intricately woven web of being, all connected and affected.

Many have made this claim through the years…

Why a man (me) celebrates International Women's Day.

Why a man (me) celebrates International Women's Day.

Why a man celebrates International Women's Day.

Well, that's easy.

First, I wouldn't be here physically had a woman or women not preceded me - in that I was born- and second, I wouldn't be here where I am now intellectually had a woman or women not preceded me - in that I was educated - and third, I wouldn't be here where I am now emotionally

Do you breathe?

Silly question, of course you know that you breathe! Well, not really. We have totally forgotten that breathing is as important as eating, exercise or sleeping for health. In Ayurveda and Yoga it is described as 'life'. It's even the same word in Sanskrit. Life starts with an inhale and it ends with an exhale. All in between is life.

Life is a process, not a finished product

It’s the nature of our human existence to sometimes feel low. When we do, the underlying feeling is fear. Those who didn't have fear feelings in the pre-historic era would probably have died out when a predator turned up. The animals that did't feel fear would most likely have been eaten up in the jungle first.  Fear is the best feeling we have to realise something has to change.
