Tuesday April 14, 2014

I think I have finally been able to get adjusted to the time zone back here. It took over a week to do that. It was sort of getting tiring being up all night and getting drowsy and sleepy at 4 or 5 am and then sleeping all morning and getting up in the afternoon. Jet lag they call this state.

Anyway time zone wise I am fully back here but my heart remains back in the Philippines. I, most likely, will end up back there soon I think. I just miss the beautiful country side and the mountains and hills where I stayed for most of my time there. I  miss, most of all, the people I met there. Even though their life is very basic and straightforward, they are happy where they are and with what they have. They are ever so grateful when things come there way, they do not take these for granted at all.

As a pursuer of health and well-being I have to say that my spirit came to rest for the time I was there. I never fully realized just how much I never really rested on this side of the earth. I know now that what much of takes up our time and energy here is so contrived and so made up. All these could just fall away and we would still be alive, and in all likelihood, enjoy life more as we should, very much like the people I met on the other side of the world.

Unlike what I have observed over the years here is a total disconnect with concern for our spiritual health. There, it seemed it was a matter of fact thing, it was just something that was part of everyday life. If you saw Manny Pacquiao after his fight with Bradley a few days ago he was in his corner praying. I don’t believe he was praying for a win but he was just giving thanks to his God for the opportunity to have had what he experienced. This is the kind of spiritual connectedness the people have over there, a daily thing, a way of life and thinking...and not afraid to express it publicly. Here we have grown to wise and smart for our own good I think. If we are to be healthy and well, we need to be so in all aspects of it, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Anyway you all have a good day and don’t forget to read a good book on health and nutrition over the next few days....even think about picking up a book on spirituality to read why don’y you ;-)
