What if our religion was each other,
If our practice was our life,
if prayer our words?

What if the temple was the Earth,
if forests were our church,
if holy waters—the rivers, lakes, and oceans.

What if meditation was our relationships,
if the teacher was life,
if wisdom was self-knowledge,
if love was the center of our being.

There are seven chakras that go up the body. Each pool of energy has a purpose, and can be blocked by a specific kind of emotional muck.

in 2 months i will be getting another new place. only this time will be very different.

it will be a house. with a garage. and a fenced in yard. this is a pretty big deal for me. it means a lot more freedom and responsibility.

ive been very interested in the idea of clean eating lately. it holds a lot of values i see fitting for every aspect of life.

simplicity.

you cook foods that are in as pure form as possibly attainable. no packaged mixes with mysterious ingredients. you buy the ingredients and make the food. that simple. and if you can you stay away from frying things and a few other “rules”.

so this sprung a dead idea in me. because ive been living rather lavishly for the past few months. (i know im a total hypocrite)

how about you live simply in all aspect of your life. clean.

see my problem for so long has been my creativity. it starts with my art work and clothing (an exterior expression of myself) that i collect. i am in NO WAY a hoarder by the way, but i tend to be attached (the bad word) and a bit lazy. but its not hard to realize that if you have less, you have less to take care of.

so that will be my goal, i suppose. a simple pantry. and a simple house.

the food i need, the furniture i need, a few nice un cluttered decorations.

(like a better home and garden house, or design sponge)

i still feel this lingering feeling of how badly im craving aesthetic over true simplicity. its still sort of consumer based. buy this and your life will be more convenient, look like this and you’ll look cool.

but hey. we have to take baby steps in this life right? first step is ridding myself of old art work, stuffed animals, and projects that will never be complete, or if they do get completed will never fit in the grand scheme of my life. and any clutter-some useless bathroom stuff (which i know ii have!) if you dont use it lose it and never buy it again. and be much more mindful of the things you do buy! you can probably do with out them!

what ever will i do what i want to start a home based craft or something or other business?! hahaha
