Living life large
“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask were the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.”
From Fatigue to Abundance
Long, long ago I was fascinated by the “ancient paths” in Jeremiah. What are they? I’d like some rest for my soul, I thought. I knew that health was to be found in nature somehow, but how to find it?
I’ve always tried to eat well, to eat good wholesome food. I was raised on garden vegetables and farm raised beef. My mom cooked and canned. Then I had seven babies. I co-ran a farm and farm business. I homeschooled the kids. We had a large garden and preserved a lot of it. I didn’t take good care of myself after the last couple of babies because there was so much to do (so I believed). I was burning the candle at both ends so that I could get everything done on my list…and it still didn’t get done. My thyroid got so fed up with me that it quit a couple of times. The first time, I had rashes everywhere. The second time, my heart added it’s voice and didn’t beat in time, quite effectively getting my attention.
I was in total burnout mode. Getting up in the morning was a chore. Cooking wasn’t fun. I didn’t have the energy to play with the kids. The farm held no joy for me, and I didn’t care about sharing it’s goodness with people.
Then I “stumbled” across an ancient path that studied how life works, distilling the rhythms of nature into 10 life practices and habits. Within the support of a group on the same path, I began eating in tune with my body’s digestive clock, going to bed at night, giving my body TLC, and resting my mind. I began to look forward to the day’s adventures, enjoy my family, and appreciate the abundant wealth of good, health nourishing food around me. Life was looking up again.
Ayurveda is the ancient Indian medical practice. It literally means “study of life.” From that ancient path we derive 10 basic life practices that align us with nature and the rhythm and harmonies of creation. These are the habits of our grandparents and great grandparents and are common to many old cultures. By tuning our inner drummer to beat in tune with the beats of the real world around us, we can experience greater health in our bodies, peace in our minds, and greater awareness in our spirits. There is “rest for your soul” in practicing the habits that follow the ancient paths. This is the journey that we are on in Abundant Living. You are invited to join us.
