Our senses allow all the stimuli of the world to enter our body-mind, causing havoc and disruption to mental and physical serenity. Just think of all the sensory agitation you experience from a roller-coaster ride or an all-you-can-eat buffet! Yes, it can be really exciting at the time but as soon as it’s over, you crash back down to “boring normality”. Trying to control the senses is like keeping a very firm rein on the five horses in the picture. This week I pledge to control my sense of Taste: I have a craving for sweet foods, despite knowing that their pleasure is very short-lived and ultimately disruptive.
This week I will nourish my body-mind with healthy food!
