Czasami mam wrażenie, że w rzeczywistości składam się z samych objawów choroby, jestem fantomem zbudowanym z bólu. Gdy trudno mi sobie znaleźć miejsce, wyobrażam sobie, że na brzuchu, od szyi do krocza mam błyskawiczny zamek i że go powoli rozsuwam, z góry na dół. I potem wysuwam ręce z rąk, a nogi z nóg i wyciągam głowę z głowy. Wydobywam się z własnego ciała, a ono spada ze mnie jak stare ubranie. Jestem drobniejsza i delikatna, prawie przezroczysta.

It’s funny how our childhood dislikes can be rediscovered when we are adults. Past miseries become today’s treats. Spinach, all kinds of cheese, oatmeal, I could go on and I know I’m not the only one. On my list, you can find as well homemade yogurt. Czytaj dalej „Yogurt is just the beginning”
In the beginning was the Universal Soul, Pure Consciousness. From it came the original, sacred sound of Om. Its vibration created space (akasa). Under the influence of sound, the space began to swirl, creating air (vayu). The swirling air and space rubbed against each other, creating energy – fire (agni) was born. The fire was burning and its heat caused the air to condense – water (jala) was formed. Water mixed with fire, air and space, gave birth to earth (prthivi). Czytaj dalej „Ayurvedic dance of elements”
