Let’s talk about illness…
In the heroic tradition, wellness is deified and illness is demonized.
This means that much of what is done even in the Alternative health arena is based on this same Heroic tradition.
It is a small step from demonizing illness to demonizing the ill.
Think of it… when did “You’re SICK” become a pejorative?
When did dancing with dis-Ease become a disqualifier? Something to hide in shame and guilt?
In truth some of the highest and most brilliant gurus, spiritual leaders etc; had dis-ease in the body… and it wasn’t always a by-product of something being WRONG.
Ah… read that again.
In today’s world- many who call themselves Healers are condemning and harming their clients in shaming them. In seeing them not as whole… but as someone who has sinned in need of redemption in the form of food or fasting.
You eat JUNK…
Flesh will kill you
This food is not conscious…
I get it my loves… at another time in my life, I too thought that was true… until it was revealed that this is just as much of a distortion as any other sort of condemnation.
Food is NOT to be worshipped.
No kind of food.
And if you’re doing this you are missing the point… exchanging one cult for another.
The cult of Veganism?
The cult of alkaline eating?
The cult of keto?
The cult of Fasting?
Are any of these wrong?
No darling… you know that we do not believe in that… lol
You can play with these paradigms just as you play with any other, and in fact, we encourage you to do so.
If you feel like you MUST do any one thing – the deeper question is what are you SEEKING? And what unworthiness are you trying to scratch with the belief that how you eat, or look or anything is what indicates how conscious or awake you are?
In so doing you only show that you are in fact still asleep.
And that too is okay.
We love you,
