When I am compulsively over-eating I am compulsively under-living.
When I am over-eating, I am under-living.
When I am over-thinking, I am under-living.
When I am over-stimulating with matcha/cacao/my phone… I am under- living.
When my life itself is not my prime energy source, when I am not alive and aligned, using my life force in the right ways, I look for it in all the wrong places.
When I’m not fully immersed in my life, when i am thinking about it more than I am living it, no moment never feels enough. So I over stimulate to ‘take me somewhere else’.
When I’m misusing my energy I am also mistreating it… I am obsessing over my power supply coming from food, or matcha, I am detached from my true power supply, forgetting that my most PURE energy comes from my most PURE life.
When I am IN my life fully and as truthfully as is humanly possible, I don’t obsess over external fuel sources. When I am rightly using and replenishing my life force, my food is simply fuel, matcha is something I enjoy. They do not hold any more power than that…. Because I remember that I do.
Yes yes yes there are survival strategies at play too. They are so valid brilliant, important, precious and I go deeply into them in the book (also, I’ll go deep in The Bath House that opens next week). I know the strategies because I have lived them and live them intimately.
Also… OUR MOST HONEST LIFE IS THE SOURCE OF OUR MOST PURE LIFE FORCE . Sometimes we look to food, stimulants etc because we’re BORED. We’re WITHHOLDING. We’re PRETENDING. We’re living a life that is not our own.
The Bath House- the liberation, lifestyle and leisure club will open its doors for the first ever soak next week. It’s me, offering my presence, wisdom, stories beyond ‘teaching’. These words are from my new book- Golden. Out 2023.
Lotsa love, Pk xxx
