Statement of Fact
The mind is a complex organ. It wants to be busy all the time. It plays games with itself. How often have you found yourself thinking a thought that bears little relation to the 'real you' When we meditate etc the mind creates silly thoughts that seem to get in the way of our desired goal. No matter how much we practice, no matter how much time we spend willing our minds to do a certain thing it says ' I shall not be tamed, I shall continue to think about what I'm having for tonight's tea...'
It's a bleak looking scenario but there is a simple solution:
Complete Physical Detox
The mind and the body are part of one organism. Agreed?
If the body is polluted and in a state of agitation what chance has the mind to become clear, focused and calm? Piss all really. Ok there are a small group of individuals who may not need to do this but for the rest of us three months of eating fresh, raw vegan food is enough to get yourself into a physical state wher you can begin to maximise the efeect of any spiritual practices you do/know. That's right. Three months on the living diet and it's lift off.
What Next? How Do I Jump On This Bandwagon?
As there are seemingly very few people aware of the facts detailed above a series of workshops are to be held in the Forest over the next wee while (free, obviuosly). The workshops are very informal and are designed to give novices and experienced practictioners a chance to share information/experiences with each other.
