FEED THE MIND, FEED THE SOUL . . .
art of writing is a wonderful gift (a gift that keeps on giving!). Itís
so beautiful to express things Ė thoughts, feelings, stories (fiction
and non-fiction), ideas, concepts and theories, new perspectives on the
infinite world and universe in which we live. These writings are put out
there for us all to experience, if we should choose to share in that
particular writerís journey.
with the other resources Iíve included on this site in other sections, I
share these as sources of information, inspiration, laughter,
thought-provoking elixirs, sources of Light, or just pure entertainment.
The power of the mind to transcend what is happening with the body can be
attained by many means (such as meditation or the like), and I found
reading to be particularly meditative Ė in a stimulating way. When I
could dive into a book and get immersed in the world that has been spun to
life, painted in elaborate beauty or well-thought and good-intentioned
information by the writers, it provided periods of relief and distraction
from the physical pain of my journey, and stimulated and strengthened my
mind to be better equipped to continue healing myself. Reading gave my
brain both energy and rest simultaneously.
