My Herbs Blog
Herbs are a funny business. There is no hiding behind the natural. The natural exposes things for what they are. Maybe that is why more people reject natural healing, than embrace it. Most people want to hide behind the metaphorical and sometimes physical mask they have created. To be exposed and to be seen as we are is very scary, but it is the only true way to being free and naturally healed as a soul.
We are not here to perfect our physical bodies. I am not opposed, at all, to taking care of oneself, but the obsession with perfecting something that perishes, is a foolish exercise. I hope that word is not too harsh. Foolishness is defined as "a lack of good sense or judgement." It is a lack of good sense to worry about and try to change our outsides, while ignoring a swirling storm on the inside. Do you know that the more you work on your inner character, your spirit self, that the more beautiful your outsides will be?
I want to jump for joy at how free I feel in my own skin. My skin has not been cut and pasted, and shaped and puffed up. Freedom is embracing yourself and feeling so good as you are. This peace comes from a deep well of acceptance of all of me, that includes all of my mistakes and all of my errors, my history and life.
I love love love to see a confident older woman embracing their gray hair, wrinkles and smiling or laughing, exuding confidence. May we all desire to give our best selves for the younger generation. I know for me, I grieve at the whisperings I hear to turn us into some sort of partial technological being with science. A combo person does not sound natural, but many people have already agreed to this. They have agreed by deciding that who they are is not enough. Oh my heart goes out to the world.
In my video below I talk about how you can't hide behind herbs. Herbal or Natural walks are ones designed to be authentic. You have no choice but to be authentic. Our whole premise is the root, the wholistic being, what is mind, body and spirit. Truly we are Spirit- in temporary physical bodies. We are here to transcend limitations, and I believe give to others from the well-spring of our deep acceptance of who we were created to be.
