antidote to despair
I gave myself a goal to read 30 books this year, I just finished my 3rd book. I have a feeling I am not going to make my goal…But that’s ok, as long as I am reading. The book that I just finished is Full Moon Feast: Food and the Hunger for Connection by Jessica Prentice. I have been reading a few books lately (part of the reason why it takes me so long to finish a book is that I read multiple books at the same time) that pertain to traditional cultures, beliefs, practices and how people are awakening to the fact that we need to reconnect to that wisdom. So much of what I have been reading resonates because I have always thought these things deep down and it is refreshing to have it reflected back in a way that clarifies what I felt intuitively.
I often feel like knowing and learning about all the ills that this planet faces can be so….depressing, to put it simply. This paragraph that Jessica Prentice writes at the end is just so beautifully stated. I felt that I had to share this message today. I hope that if someone passing through reads this that perhaps it was something they needed to hear. I certainly did.
