I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The plan is to read more books this year and to keep track of them on Goodreads. If you are a reader on Goodreads, let me know so I can follow you.
We found three large styrofoam coolers at a yard sale for $5.00 so used that for inspiration to defrost our big freezer in the garage. It looks good now, and we can see the many bags of peaches and strawberries we have stowed away in there.
One of the most effective ways we learn is from our personal experience. We learn to recognize the connection between the stress of our bodies and the stress of our minds. We work on these tensions both physically and mentally. We learn to quiet our minds, and to express ourselves more creatively. This all is part of letting go of what is not real...not true.
We can best help change the world for the better by working on ourselves. Freedom requires that we take responsibility for ourselves. Freedom in combination with self-discipline makes for the most interesting way to live. We choose our path and then walk it. Freedom allows for standing against oppression and injustice; it is not an excuse to be lazy, or greedy. The path walks between too much freedom, that would excuse laziness or greed, and too much discipline, which would be restrictive and damaging.
To be the happiest, we need self-discipline to keep us on track. The simple, natural life helps us develop the inner discipline...gentle but firm.
To health and happiness.
